#AttackWatch! Hey, @AttackWatch: This ‘Downfall’ Video Looks Like #tcot Hate

Posted on | September 18, 2011 | 15 Comments

Both inevitable and obligatory:

The laughable failure of is a result of the internal logic of the Left: When you believe your politics is an expression of your own moral and intellectual superiority, it logically follows that your opposition is both evil and stupid. While the assumption of right-wing evil is perhaps still unrefuted, we have at least proven that we’re not so stupid as to be incapable of using Twitter hashtags effectively. Ross Kaminsky explains at The American Spectator:

As I follow #attackwatch in my Twitter application on Thursday morning, I can’t keep up with the updates. A new tweet hits about every two seconds, almost all of them obviously by people who are not just opposed to the administration’s Goebbels-like activities, but who are effectively turning AttackWatch into the biggest joke in Internet history.
Here are a few of the tweets which have come across the #attackwatch hashtag just during the writing of this article:
From DrFreeLance: “I saw a werewolf drinkin a pina colada at Trader Vic’s, and his hair was perfect.”
From chuckdevore (Republican state legislator in California): “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean a big majority of us isn’t out to get you…”
From EddieRobbins: “My neighbor removed his Obama bumper sticker. I think he’s a racist.”
From DickMeyers: “Bless me #AttackWatch for I have sinned. I have muttered naughty words about our Dear Leader 9 times & have doubted his divinity a few times”
From joaniekensil: “Ate refried beans & chips for breakfast which is sort of racist foodist – Carbon emissions to follow.”
From PoliticalGravity: “Saw a kid with a lemonade stand and she didn’t have a permit.”
From thorninaz: “Hey #attackwatch, I saw 6 ATM’s in an alley, killing a Job. It looked like a hate crime!”
And from the always excellent IowaHawkBlog: “#AttackWatch have you cried “uncle” yet? Because we can keep this up all f***in’ day.”
Most of these occurred within a 2-minute span. You get the idea. . . .

Read the whole thing. The most beautiful thing about is the tiny print at the bottom that says: “Paid for by Obama for America.”

How much money did they piss away on this idiotic waste of pixels? Let’s hope it was a lot, because there is nothing that helps advance the cause of right-wing evil as much as when liberals spend campaign money to hire stupid people.

(P.S.: I signed up for their e-mail list. I’ll let you know if they send me any particularly silly propaganda.)

    Here’s my sole contribution to date-

    #AttackWatch I’ve been hearing a vicious drug cartel may have infiltrated the highest levels of government. I think it’s called the TSA.

    Pretty tame compared to some of these and others I’ve seen. I hope it keeps going for awhile.

    Sorry for the brief interruption.

    FYI: There are more ‘Downfall’ parodies about right wing lunacy than the left.

    Now continue laughing.

    So fucking what? When you start comparing the numbers of Downfall parodies of one side versus another that’s probably a pretty good sign you know you’re losing the war.

    As soon as you want success you lose your peace of mind, you don’t even need to run after success to become miserable, just wishing it is enough to ruin a good moment.

    Reminds me of Rudyard Kiplings famous line: “Success and Failure; you must view these two impostors just the same.”

    You’re not even tolerable when you let someone else do your thinking for you.

    That could be.  More importantly, however, is that the non-parody Downfall is about one of the logical conclusions of left wing lunacy.

    I signed up for their e-mail list.

    So did I.  So far, nada, zip, zilch.

    But I did have the pleasure of turning in several prominent lefties for dissenting against Our Dear Leader.  Including Robert Redford.

    Tsk tsk, Anamika, tsk tsk!

    ‘Tis not quantity that we seek.  Any fool can produce shit in massive amounts.

    Nay, we seek quality, that which often eludes you and your fellow lefties, in your stumbling through the dark. 

    Tsk, tsk, Anamika, tsk tsk!

    Here was my contribution today — Bless me #AttackWatch for I have sinned.  It has been 5 min since my last tweet.  I voted in the HotAir OOTW poll and enjoyed it. #tcot
