Ellis Washington Shares His Personal Fantasies

Ellis Washington is a man who has kept his resume remarkably lean, even ascetic, down through the years, forcing his career to live out of a single, spare, uncluttered paragraph that would leave the crew of Hoarders twiddling their thumbs.

Unlike the many restless souls who keep taking on new jobs and challenges and must continually update their CVs, Ellis is no stuck-up, fair weather worker.  He remains loyal to his earliest and most humble achievements, continually giving them pride of place; and if, on occasion, he does succumb to the temptation to trumpet something he's done in the 21st century (like briefly working as a part-time instructor at an obscure junior college, or writing that "authorized biography" of Michael Savage that apparently lost a bit of momentum once Michael Savage learned about it), he immediately regrets the infidelity and goes crawling back to his first loves: ex-law clerk at a wingnut think tank, and one time staffer at the Michigan Law Review, where -- his style suggests -- he edited the Personal ads.  ("Saw you in talk radio studio.  Me: holding autograph book and simpering.  You: telling caller to 'get AIDS and die.'  Our eyes met.  You were Prometheus and I was Fire...")

But there is one more recent accomplishment of which he remains proud:
He hosts a radio program Thursdays at 10 a.m. Eastern on 1620 AM in Atlanta. It can be heard online at the Radio Sandy Springs website.
Sandy Springs bills itself as "America's Web Radio," so it's not really a "radio" program, and judging by the episodes I listened to, Ellis doesn't actually host a show so much as he calls in to another guy's internet gabfest and reads off a list of grievances in the manner of an insane bomber delivering his manifesto to the one reporter in the city he can trust to really get it, man!

Anyway, he thinks Cass Sunstein is going to murder the Constitution and make himself King of Scotland, before recording a series of chart-topping hits with the Mommas and the Papas, and then choking to death on a sandwich.
Cass Sunstein and his Lady Macbeth
There is no liberty without dependency. ~ Cass Sunstein, regulatory czar
With fanatical zeal that would impress demigods like Darwin, Nietzsche, Justice O.W. Holmes, Trotsky and Hitler, American Progressivism has for over 130 years aggressively dismantled, brick by brick, every aspect of our fundamental natural rights founded under God, natural law and the original intent of the constitutional framers.
It's hard to believe God is getting beaten by demi-gods.  It almost makes you think he took a bribe to throw the fight.

Anyway, what the hell do all these people have in common?  Well, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Trotsky and Hitler were, of course, the original Mod Squad, with Darwin as their no-nonsense superior.  But the network wanted to go with the tagline "One White, One Black, One Blonde" after the previous slogan "One Handlebar, One Goatee, One Chaplin Half-Stache" failed to resonate with the hippies the way they hoped it would, and the characters were replaced by Pete, Linc, and Julie, with Nietzsche as the gruff but caring Captain Greer.
A major part of this strategy is for utopian socialists to regulate our constitutional rights into oblivion and make us all slaves to the omnipotent socialist State ruled by a small oligarchy of overseers. President Obama's handpicked Cesare Mori is regulatory czar Cass Sunstein, whose fascist motto is: There is no liberty without dependency.
I always thought Sunstein's bailiwick, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs was just a department of the OMB tasked with reviewing draft regulations under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, but apparently their real purpose is to wipe out the Mafia in Sicily.
To give you an idea of the utter diabolical ideas of this Marxist academic, look at his 2008 book "Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness," where Sunstein and co-author Richard H. Thaler argued to expand the current organ-donor policy – that unless a patient has explicitly chosen to be an organ donor, either on his driver's license or with a donor card, the doctors assume that the person did not want to donate and therefore do not harvest his organs. Thaler and Sunstein want to reinterpret this as "explicit consent."
In America, if a corpse doesn't have the liberty to be buried in peace without legions of ghoulish, body-snatching bureaucrats stealing grandma's liver, kidneys or eyeballs, then what freedom and constitutional rights do you think those of us who are alive will enjoy? … None! 
First they came for grandma's kidneys, and I said nothing, because she was dead, and it hadn't yet occurred to me I could have harvested them myself and sold them at wholesale prices to Thomas Sowell.
Sunstein wrote a blog entry...in which he explained he "will be urging that it is important to resist, on democratic grounds, the idea that the [Constitution] should be interpreted to reflect the view of the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party." The tyrannous effect of Sunstein's coup d'état will be to remake the U.S. Constitution into a socialist communist document without having to fire one bullet, or get one vote in Congress.
This week on Manifesto Makeovers, celebrity stylist Cass Sunstein takes on the dowdy U.S. Constitution.  "You're a glorious, glamorous diva just waiting to happen," he tells it.  "All you need is a little putsch."
In his 2005 book, "The Second Bill of Rights," Sunstein outlines the diabolical parameters of this new communist bill of rights:
  • The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return that will give him and his family a decent living;
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
  • The right of every family to a decent home;
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident and unemployment;
  • The right to a good education.
Sunstein's contemptible communist propaganda isn't new. Remember that in 1944, Democrat-socialist President Franklin Roosevelt proposed a Second Bill of Rights. Sunstein apparently plagiarized many of his ideas from FDR and the 1977 Soviet Constitution.
Someday someone will explain to former law-clerk Washington the difference between plagiarism and quotation.  The list above isn't a pilfering paraphrase; it's taken directly from Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights, and is unlikely to have been foisted on the reader as Sunstein's own ideas, since he titled his book The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution--And Why We Need It More Than Ever.

It is interesting to note, however, that President Roosevelt was able to time travel to the Brezhnev-era Soviet Union in order to boost ideas for his 1944 State of the Union Address -- although it's possible that it wasn't a premeditated theft.  Maybe something went wrong with the Philadelphia Experiment and FDR unexpectedly found himself sitting in his wheelchair in the middle of Red Square and figured he might as well just grab that day's copy of Pravda for a souvenir.
Let me be clear, professor Sunstein is one of the most despicable academics I've ever studied who is still alive.
"There are some dead ones whose guts I would have hated, but they were organ donors, so I never got the chance."
What is most reprehensible about Czar Sunstein and the 36-plus books he has written...
...is that people actually read his books, and critics don't spend their entire reviews complaining about typos and bad grammar.
...is that not only does he demonstrates an utter contempt for our Constitution, but he also takes absolute delight in using that same Constitution the framers designed to protect us from traitors of his ilk to destroy the capitalist free market and natural law that made this country exceptional above all others.
I could tolerate the treason if they ilk kept a straight face about it, but I just can't stand it when ilk take delight.  Anyway, I guess the lesson here is that an "extreme right wing" interpretation of the Constitution is like raw milk -- more authentic, and it probably toughens your immune system the way open sewers used to habituate children to the polio virus, thus making access to health care irrelevant -- but people are weak these days, and refuse to opt out of forced pasteurization by Socialist Big Cow.
But for the national lobotomy this great country has apparently suffered after 160 years of state propaganda most people know as our public school system, a scoundrel like Sunstein (and his Lady Macbeth wife) would be immediately fired, placed in the stocks in the public square and have rotten fruit and dead animals thrown at his face like in Medieval times … but this is only a personal fantasy.
It's not every blog that gives you a naked glimpse into Ellis Washington's personal fantasies, so if you're ever tempted to ask what I've done for you lately, here's the creme de la creme of his porn collection: Woman with Bound Feet in Ménage à trois with Rodeo Clown and Mr. Peanut Impersonator.

I wasn't there, of course, when the this particular image arrived in a plain brown wrapper, but I bet he threw a lot of spoiled cucumbers and dead chickens that night.
America, please don't allow Soros, Sunstein and Obama to kill the U.S. Constitution through either rewriting it or regulating our sacred constitutional rights into oblivion.
Only let them kill the U.S. Constitution by rewiring it or regurgitating it.  Make 'em work for it, America.
Send letters to your congressional representatives and demand that all Republicans refuse to pass a hike in the debt limit and force a government shutdown. This strategy will compel Democratic socialists and RINOs alike to make draconian spending cuts, including defunding entire departments of the federal government, like Education, Commerce, the EPA and most regulatory agencies that are duplicative and fascist.
Actually, since the regulation of interstate commerce is a power explicitly granted the government by the Constitution, I figured Commerce -- along with DoD -- would be one of the few departments people like Ellis would tolerate.  But in its natural state of grace, commerce doesn't want to be regulated, it wants to be like the title character of Free Bird, so I suppose this is one of those times when a patriot's duty requires that he hold the Constitution down while Natural Law whales on it with a sweatsock full of nickles. Because this bird you cannot change.
And let us collectively stab through the heart Sunstein's treachery that "there is no liberty without dependency."
Actually, that's a misquote.  Sunstein was talking about hysterical right wing fantasists who see kidney thieves and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse lurking behind every USDA poultry inspector and who can never leave the house because they're constantly shitting themselves.  The full quote is "[for such people] there is no liberty without Depends."

Ellis is aware that "draconian" doesn't actually have a positive connotation...? Never mind. Dumb question. He probably thinks it involves dragons in some way.

Sometimes I think, man, why should I even bother voting, given what a shitty president Obama's been? Then I see something like this, and I remember: it's 'cause seriously, fuck histrionic assholes like Ellis Washington.

I've twisted my mind into ever-increasingly complicated and fantastic shapes trying to make sense of bizarre characters like this bloke and Robin of Berkeley. Every time I think I've got a vague and blurry resemblance to an actual living human being, I find there is a huge chunk missing that would tie it all together.

Holding a finger here, my foot pressing that together, a bit of duct tape and some bailing wire, now squint my eyes and I can almost see a black man loving him some piece of paper that couldn't be bothered to recognize him as a human being, but then I realize such a person probably couldn't manage to feed himself, much less operate a computer long enough to type a sentence or two.

Therefore, I've decided to go the Occam's Razor route and just accept that, like the fabled Fiji mermaid, such a creature could not exist--hence these folks are imaginary voices for some propaganda mill.

Seriously, can anyone prove such imbecility can exist in an otherwise functioning adult? I'm open to convincing, but until then, color me skeptical.

The Amazon reviews for his book are painful to read. But then, "University Press of America" is basically a glorified vanity press.

cole concludes: hence these folks [Robin of Berkeley and Ellis Washington] are imaginary voices for some propaganda mill.

Or chatterbots-- ELIZA and PARRY, in other words (we have got to get these two together!).

Brian Schlosser said...

So, Ellis wants to set the clock back 160 years... to a time when he could have been owned as property. Hmmm...

Nah, who am I kidding. I'm sure he imagines he would have been one of those slave-holding free blacks Confederate sympathizers love to drag out as proof that slavery wasn't racist.


Also, I am utterly boggled at the idea that there are people who consider a world where people have the right to have a decent home, enough food to eat and an education to be a terrifying place to live.

KWillow said...

A world where everyone, even poor minorities! had food, shelter, health care and education, is a world where the status of wealth would be much less, and anyone who worked for these super-rich would be able to walk away any time s/he chose: to refuse to work on an unsafe oil rig, to refuse to die in the coal mines, refuse to teach their children lies, and so on.

The poorer and more desperate most people are, the more power the rich have over them.

The organ donor thing is beyond moronic. A good friend worked for years as the person who has to (1) ask the grieving family if they would like to donate (and what they want to donate - it's a big universe in terms of body parts), and then (2) go through the extremely thorough, probing and very difficult, long question list to determine if the parts/organs can be donated. This occurs even if you have indicated you want to be a donor on your drivers license (that's how we roll in CO), or even included it in your living will. Tell me how much fun it is to talk to grieving family members and have to ask things like "did this person ever engage in hetero or homosexual sex outside of a committed relationship"? High stress, high burnout job.

And no, they can't just pick up a dead person and start parting them out like an old Chevy; there are significant and multiple hoops that must be jumped and approved of by the responsible family members. To suggest otherwise is to scare people out of considering donation at all, and that hurts people who are in desperate need of kidneys, corneas, etc. What a vile little liar!

Prof. W.I. Pedia avers that Eliza and Parry have had more than one get-together. No word on which won, or if any resolution resulted. The idea of a psychiatrist script curing, or even bringing mild relief, to a paranoid script is sort of cool.

I'm with Brian Schlosser being boggled at Ellis horror of a social guarantee of basic physical and economic welfare. Assuming Ellis isn't completely swamped by Orwellian language pathology, where he would truly think "freedom" means "slavery", I can only think he assumes he would be one of the Fit, or Elect, or however he conceptualizes the fortunate minority. It's like Channeling. You never hear about anyone speaking in the voice of a farm laborer or a scullery maid who died of disease or overwork.

Uh, double dog ditto, TYVM.

Anyone want to help write the Conservative Bill of Rights? Because I can't think how to even start. Except maybe:

"You have the right to screw over anyone and everyone to the best of your ability. If you can't, then you're just pathetic and SOL."

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Faster, Harder, More Challenging GeoX said...

Well, let's take the republican rebuttal point-by-point here.

The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

You have no right to a useful or remunerative job.

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

You have no right to earn enough for food or clothing, let alone recreation.

The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return that will give him and his family a decent living;

You have no right to raise or sell products at a return that would provide you with a decent living.

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad.

You have no right to trade freely or fairly.

The right of every family to a decent home;

You have no right to a decent home.

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

You have no right to adequate medical care, and good health? Pft--forget it.

The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident and unemployment;

You have no right to any protection from any economic fears.

The right to a good education.

You have no right to a good education.

This is pretty much the republican platform, so no surprises there. It's just that most of them, dumb as they are, aren't quite stupid enough to spell it out in so many words. As for the question of why any non-plutocrat would want to embrace the "fuck everyone" plan, my understanding of abnormal psychology is not sufficient to provide an answer.
