Sentient Potan's Pro Wrestling Political Primer: American Version
Both "Sides" of the Fake Two Party Paradigm love Pro Wrestling and Make Excuses for their Heroes and then munch Doritos and go to sleep with crumbs on their chest
Premise: There was nothing Hero could do. This will continue to happen until we rein in the Federal Government.
Obvious Question: How will we do this? This whole…let’s call it…draining the Swamp thing?
So we are right here one foot in recognition of Reality.
POTUS (when you like him/her) can’t do shit.
“He’s only one guy! He was in a no-win situation!”
Congress (when you like him/her) can’t do shit.
“They don’t have power like WHO/PHARMA does!”
Obvious Question: Who decides to fund WHO?
Y’all are so close sometimes.
I used to track the exact same Excuses Family with lefties about Bernie Sanders, and probably the worst of the Stars in Their Eyes Excuse Making Family are the AOC stans.
I’ve gathered that most of my crew here leans “right” whatever that means (We hate Commies) and many do readily grasp that we exist in a Pro Wrestling Theater of Power, and that it’s Vince McMahon (The Blob, Rich Assholes) behind the curtain deciding who gets put over.
But I am far more familiar with how the Bullshit Sausage gets made on the American “left” whatever that means (men can have babies and We Love Nazis in Ukraine) and encounter the same Pro Wrestling arguing a work dynamic. Same.
Bread and circuses, fam.
Every single time you put on that Hero Team Jersey and don’t pay attention to what always stays the same no matter which Tribe (wink-wink) is in the office, you are being made a jackass.
And every single time you make excuses for why your hero’s hands were tied and couldn’t fire Fauci or take on the Big Bad Media or why your hero can’t call a press conference and hold up a VAERS chart?
You are being made a jackass.
If I thought being made a jackass had any chance of deriving results, I would go down to Jackass R-Us and get fitted for the costume.
It doesn’t work. It won’t work. Ever. Ever. Ever.
Don’t be made a jackass.
I don’t know what will happen. I wrote an Unintended Consequences post here if you want Hopey Changey Four Move Chess potential outcomes.
In the meantime.
Just follow the loop of your own logic.
If your Hero ain’t gettin’ it done because they are just plucky little strivers sitting in the purported seat of Global Power?
Then stop pretending that it can or will change moving forwards if you just vote harder for them next time.
Sentient Potan out.
