This Machine Kills Fascists
In the beginning, Little Big Town MT was opinion or satire about Billings, the biggest city in Montana (105,000 population officially, 150,000 traffic-wise), the state of Montana, its colorful history, and the world beyond.
But on January 20, 2017, the Nimcompoopalypse arrived. Our beloved country was plunged into peril. Thanks to a perfect storm of activism by anti-Christian Ayn Randians, Confederates, neo-Nazis (no ‘alt-right’ PC here), Facebook scalawags, Russian cyber terrorists, and ‘the usual gang of idiots’ we elected a disaster. The most incompetent person in 228 years to the White House – Donald J. Trump.
Assisted by the Citizens United ruling under the activist Roberts-Scalia Supreme Court, and meddling by the Soviet Union (oops, I mean Tzar Putin’s Russia), a mentally ill man seized the White House.
Patriotism demands we answer. So this site is re-dedicated to Truth, Justice and the American Way. That means challenging the biggest threat to our national security since 1861 — the occupation of our White House by that child-cheating amoral narcissistic pro-Russian Fuhrer. But let’s call him Der Furor instead. It sounds the same and yet captures the bumbling fake leadership of this administration.
The things you read here are all true unless they are not. Kind of like the Bible or the Quran. This is not a Fake News site. We do satire. So did Aristophanes and Racine and Shakespeare and Swift and Orwell and Huxley and Vonnegut and Brautigan and Dr. Seuss, and well, most anyone worth remembering. It isn’t my job to teach anyone how to think. I only hope you think. ‘Reading between the lines’ is what reading is.
You’re a big person with a free will so you can figure out which is which. The only allowance we’ll make to today’s turmoil is that at the top of our pages we have labels. One of them is “satire”–this is a clue.
Real Conservatives defend satire. Western culture invented satire. We’ve been doing it for about 2,500 years. Aristophanes made fun of everybody, including Socrates. Shakespeare used satire. Voltaire used satire. Mark Twain was a master. So were Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller and Jon Stewart and Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert.
Satire makes the Nazis cry.
Speaking of Shakespeare, real conservatives defend William Shakespeare, the greatest playwright in human history, who half-invented the modern English language. He wrote the greatest play about the assassination of Julius Caesar.
