It has become increasingly noticeable that the anti-Bush few who post at LA-IMC have intentionally ignored many truths that are obvious to everyone else. It’s time the methods by which these truths are deposed are revealed in one place.

Let’s face it. Indymedia is a fringe site for radicals who, because of their political perspective, should never have a seat at the table of those who conduct in serious political debate. Because of this lack of fulfillment, a miniscule handful of them from various locations gather here to vent. That the vast majority of the populace ignores their political convictions is an endless stream of frustration to these people. By gum, they actually believe they have something worthwhile to contribute, and their voices should be just as important as, let’s say, sane, skilled and capable individuals. It will continue to be disappointment to them. They simply want to be something that is out of their league.

The shills who post here promoting their leftists and anarchists political leaning are intentionally not seeing obvious truths right in front of their face. If they are not doing it intentionally, then that can only mean they are too stupid to recognize their own incompetence. Leftists and anarchists who are too stupid to see the truth when placed right in front of their face are aplenty, but are generally too paranoid of their own shadow to be of any effect in our daily lives. It's those who lie to themselves and truly believe they should be listened to which is the subject of this discussion.

When presented with what is regarded by the populace as accurate and unquestionable evidences, they must immediately discredit these things which do not agree with their already predetermined account of events. When going by the book written by those who control their thoughts, the acceptable way of discarding this is to pronounce the evidence as having been offered up by “corporate controlled media”. By this claim, all evidence presented in articles from such publications can be dismissed without further consideration.

Another method is to post links to obscure and virtually unknown bloggers who have created their own news sites, the majority of which have a pronounced agenda of presenting “alternative news”, a code word if you will for anti-conservative rantings. These writings are offered up to us as “legitimate sources” of unquestioned integrity, and the poster of such requests, or more likely demands, that those who disagree with the premise of the article prove it wrong. This weakness in position is seen as strength to those of the political left. They have built another strawman, and have valiantly slayed him with a dull blade of grass.

A common method of discrediting those things which daily destroys their tunnel-vision view of the world is to declare victory over one’s opponent. This method ordinarily occurs when the one declaring victory has just had his head handed to him. In their eyes, they have given themselves an upper hand by pronouncing an end to the discussion, thereby avoiding the embarrassing realization that to continue would mean further humiliation.

Leftists and anarchists are extremely stupid people. That they are unable to except that truth is further evidence of just how stupid and out-of-touch they really are. If they would simply admit they are ignorant fools and that their political views are worthless, at least the world could have a small bit of respect for them. Seeing as it appears that they will continue to believe they have something worth contributing, those of us who are able to see clearly in order to bring to the table reasoned and beneficial solutions will continue to marginalize these innocent-of-mind imbeciles and keep them safely tucked away in a box where they cannot hurt themselves or others.

That Indymedia exists should be an encouragement to the peace loving, caring and compassionate of the world that the radical leftists and anarchists who support this place are experiencing their last gasps of breath. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and their political positions and beliefs reflect their desperation. The message they project and the methods which they must use to in order to attempt to get their message out has become a self-fulfilled prophesy of their own demise.
