Today I present my now seemingly annual “Liberals Are…” Special.
I started out with Bees. Then Zombies. Then Drones.
The fourth in the series was Skunks.
Now we have the 2014 edition. DALEKS! 🙂
A Dalek for the uninitiated is the premiere villain of the Longest Running Science Fiction show in the history of TV, “Doctor Who”. They are both 50 years old and still going.
They are Kaled mutants from the planet Skaro and they are nasty, nasty little creatures.
Terrance Dicks, former Script Editor, and long time fan favorite for Doctor Who Novels once said (paraphrase) “the Daleks only response to being frustrated in any way was to exterminate something”.
While Liberals aren’t strictly Daleks because they don’t and can’t just exterminate you on a frustrating whim but they are working on it with ObamaCare.
Jonathan Morris in Doctor Who Magazine (#471) has an article about the 50 years of The Daleks.
They were originally based on The Nazis but for this comparison I’m just looking at some on the analysis in the article and see if you see a Progressive Liberal in there somewhere…:)
“intelligent, manipulative, ‘devoid of conscience’ and prone to bouts of psychotic rage” or in Progressives, childish rage.
“in addition they exhibit all the traits of malevolent antisocial personality disorder, particularly belligerence and callousness ” (ObamaCare anyone?)
What is there collective response to “Obamacare horror stories”. You’re a Liar! It’s not True. You’re just being Political.
And if you don’t do as I say I will sick The IRS on you. The NSA is watching you!
“The Daleks themselves are like children, locked in a permanent tantrum if they don’t get their own way and wanting to lash out and smash their toys (or exterminate their teachers).”
How many times have I said that the response by the Liberal, especially a Progressive one, is usually very childish and bratty? (too often).
“And an insatiable desire to conquer,destroy and wipe out all other species just because they are different” 🙂
Another theme of the Daleks is to convert you to their cause whether you wanted to be or not. This was seen in the 1960’s in Dalek Invasion of Earth as Robomen, people converted to be slaves to Daleks will and in 2013 they were Dalek Operatives in Asylum of The Daleks and Time of The Doctor.
But some Daleks, like some liberals, overcome this affliction and fight back against their “masters” but it’s usually few and far between. Most are converted and never remember their old life (or are pre-programmed from the beginning).
For Robomen, think Illegal Immigration also. 🙂
“One of the creepiest ideas in their most recent Asylum of the Daleks is the fact that Oswin (a sympathetic guest character) is converted into a Dalek and doesn’t even realise it, locked in an artificial state of psychosis”
The other thing about Daleks is their frenzy and fury for “purity”. For the Daleks themselves this is a very Nazi-esque “racial purity”. For Liberals, especially the Progressive variety it’s ideological purity, step 1 nanometer off the reservation and wam! lightning and wrath will won’t to strike you dead! You are no longer “pure”.
Daleks who deem themselves more “pure” have no qualms about exterminating their own less “pure” kindred (2008, 2010 election where more conservative or moderate Democrats were exterminated by their own party, anyone?)
Say anything bad about ObamaCare and you’re suspect. “Compromise” for real with a Republican and you’ll be looked at askance., and so on.
The Agenda is The Agenda!
They are perfect. You are not. Thus you must be ruled over by them completely.
And they must remain so.
No “Imperial Daleks” will cause a Civil War here.
“They are reflection of ourselves, of what we are capable of, what we have been and what we may become. They were inspired by the Nazis,but today, when you see a mass rally of identically (and ideologically) drilled soldiers, you’re seeing human beings acting like Daleks.When you hear political figures attacking those who are ‘unalike’, who don’t conform,you’re hearing the voice of the Daleks. The belief that only the “superior beings” (Homo Superior Liberalis) deserve to survive…”
“The Daleks are a warning from history, because they represent every dark part of human nature, aggression,paranoia,ruthlessness,intolerance,amorality,unthinking conformity,blind hatred,loss of individuality,lack of empathy and lack of humanity”
And if you don’t agree, the IRS, The NSA, The FDA, The FBI, and The DOJ will be happy to “re-educate you” citizen. 🙂
