There’s a scene in The Wire – if you know the show, you know the scene – between Omar and Bunk:
Omar: I ain’t never put my gun on anybody wasn’t in the game.
Bunk: A man got to have a code.
The problem with what conservatism has become – most evidently in America, but the whole Milton Friedman, supply side, trickle down theory of economic growth; the IMF and the World Bank and Wall Street – is that it insists on pointing guns at everyone who isn’t in the game.
These motherfuckers – the rich and the corporations – have no code. No mercy, no heart, no sense of community. No CODE.
They will say anything. There is no lie, no matter how patently false, ugly, concocted, harmful, vicious and willfully blind that cannot be floated…and for no other purpose than to muddy the waters, make any sort of political progress impossible, and form the basis for more and uglier lies down the road.
Breitbart. It took ANDREW BREITBART – one of the most patently obvious lying trolls; a piece of shit recognizable at a glance…you can smell him from HERE – to even RAISE the question: Is the American media DOING IT’S JOB? Are they FACT CHECKING?
It took a pathetic, reprehensible, partisan TURD like Andrew Breitbart to exhume the rotting corpse of a question that once demanded answer daily for real journalists. IS IT TRUE?
Too many guns. No fucking code.
