George Carlin Was Right: “The Big Club”…

Very salty language, but the points made are insanely accurate.

With the context of the last twelve months of sunlight upon a political process as a backdrop, this George Carlin segment is essentially the USA version of the Brexit argument.

[Transcript]  “There’s a reason education SUCKS, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you’ve got.

Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the REAL owners, now. The REAL owners, the BIG WEALTHY business interests that control things and make all the important decisions — forget the politicians.

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. YOU DON’T.

You have no choice. You have OWNERS.

They OWN YOU. They own EVERYTHING.

They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations; they’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the State houses, the City Halls; they’ve got the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

They gotcha by the BALLS.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying — lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want — they want MORE for themselves and less for everybody else.

But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They DON’T want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that, that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting FUCKED by system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin’ years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want?

They want OBEDIENT WORKERS. OBEDIENT WORKERS. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passably accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

And now they’re comin’ for your SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY. They want your fuckin’ retirement money.

They want it BACK. So they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it ALL from you sooner or later — ‘cuz they OWN this fuckin’ place.

It’s a big CLUB. And YOU AIN’T IN IT.

You and I are NOT IN the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe.

five stooges never trump

All day long, beating you over the in their media telling you what to believe — what to think — and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

Good honest hard-workin people — white collar, blue collar — doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-workin people CONTINUE — these are people of modest means — continue to elect these RICH COCKSUCKERS who don’t GIVE a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you, they don’t GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU.

THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU — AT ALL. AT ALL. AT ALL. You know?

And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care … that’s what the owners count on, the fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day.

Because the owners of this country know the truth — it’s called the American Dream … ‘cuz you have to be asleep to believe it.”

Tom donohue 5

And that’s why candidate Donald J Trump is uniquely qualified to be the one person who can stand up to these insanely self-serving interests and remove their influence.

That’s why all entities around the political sphere despise him.

Donald Trump is adverse to their interests.    Trump’s “America First” platform is adverse to their interests. Trump represents an existential threat to their decades long grip on power…. all of it, both branches of the UniParty.

There are trillions of dollars at stake.

As Carlin says with some cussing for emphasis:

[…] They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting F**KED by system that threw them overboard 30 f**kin’ years ago. They don’t want that.

And that’s exactly what the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump has brought to the forefront.  Those are exactly the conversations happening around every kitchen table, in every coffee shop, grocery store, and sidewalk run-in with friends and colleagues.

The “figuring out” is well underway, Trump has pulled back the curtain and fundamentally changed the perspectives of many within the electorate.  That’s the reason why the corporate media must continue to go full-tilt against the risk to their enterprise/owners:

Isolate – Ridicule – Marginalize.

That’s the Alinsky inspired approach the anti-American interests take whenever anyone comes close to challenging their positions and power.

  1. My favorite video of George Carlin. I sent this to someone a couple of days ago. I wonder what Mr. Carlin would have to say about what is happening today?

      George Carlin would have been a Sanders supporter. He railed against builders of big golf courses, so he would hate Trump. Carlin also despised organized religion and said some truly nasty, offensive things about Christians. Some of what he said was absolutely on point and incredibly perceptive, but let’s not fool ourselves into thinking he was exactly “one of us.” He was not.

        Oh heck no, have you not read any of Carlin’s books? He despised liberals and their political correctness. He did not appreciate those with their hands out, he preferred them to get off their lazy bums and contribute to society, not hold it down with a free class of people.

        He would have belittled Sanders and crucified hc.

        Please scroll down to Citizen817 (?) video post and take a listen to what Carlin thinks of the progressive PC. He despised its ridiculousness just like we do, but he says it so much better.

        I’m not angry with you or trying to belittle you. We all make mistakes, and I make enough of them myself.

        This isn’t the election to turn your back on any Bernie supporter.
        Plenty of them are disaffected enough that they won’t show up at the polls for Clinton because they’re at least smart enough to know that if the Clintons are purged it’s still a win for the planet. Find them. Make it known that even though they may not want to vote for Trump, this is the year that voting for the Republican candidate may actually do them some good. Clinton keeps them trapped and they know that. But Bernie voters need to be reminded that sometimes the only way to escape a trap is to gnaw off your leg.

Just because Carlin would have a different solution to the problem of the country being owned than we, doesn’t mean what he says in the video isn’t true. I believed all along (and still do) that this primary season was/is about enough people knowing the status quo has destroyed and is further destroying this country and want a change — some were too young, too dumb or too uninformed to know socialism (Bernie) doesn’t work, but they did know what we’re doing doesn’t work either. Those of us who still have brains turned to Trump.

I was driving on my way to work and had the radio on. Right after the announcement, I let out a big happy scream. I KNEW our country had elected the right man for the job.

      I have the same reservations about the Reagan plaudits, but then Abraham Lincoln gives me pause when discussing his twisting of The Constitution and the War Between the States, especially when one adds up the devastation to the Southern economy and the emergence of the very, very privileged Northern class that survived without fighting one day on the battlefields for what they apparently didn’t value sufficiently to sully their own boots.

      Carlin had the uncanny ability to cut to the heart of darkness, ignore the rules of civility imposed to smother truisms, and wrap his commentary in just enough humor that he drew huge audiences. With luck, some were sufficiently intelligent to understand the core of his message. Thankfully, his art survives through such videos and now reminds us that this overthrow of our country has been long in the works.

I can’t tell you how many nights I’d lay in bed thinking about nuclear destruction and as weird as that may sound, back in the day it was what was talked about a lot. The Cold War between the USSR and the USA was a very, very real thing. I remember in the early 1960s my parents discussing the Cuban missile crisis with my aunts and uncles. I was only 4, but it left a HUGE impression on me – more like scared to death. Then in grade school, the drills where you had to line up in the gym along the wall with your face to the wall. I guess this was so you wouldn’t see what was coming?

      When Reagan went to Reykjavik to discuss the nuclear arms race with Gorbachev and walked out, it was the ballsiest move I’ve ever seen. When he stood at the Berlin wall and said to Gorbachev, “Tear down this wall!” it was the best thing I had ever heard. Here was a president that had the guts to defy the naysayers in both parties. He was not like Bush, nor McCain, nor Romney. This man took away the fear I had grown up with and for that, I am eternally grateful.

    So, lets do to them what they do to us: Isolate – Ridicule – Marginalize.
    Isolate — show them how few they are compared to us. Make them feel small. Smaller. Smallest. Make them turn around at night when they’re walking in their gated compounds, just in case a working citizen may have sneaked in. Threaten them gently, by reminding them, repeatedly, that they are few, known and associated with the losing team.
    Ridicule — This is easy. Any of the racial/gender/religious grievance mongers should be pointed and laughed at. Make sure they know you’re laughing at them. Do it online, always. In person, do it with derision. Shake your head, snort quietly, turn away while snickering … just make them feel as little as they are.
    Marginalize — Do you have a successful business, non-profit, church group, neighborhood organization? Well, keep them away. Don’t give them business (most are in government jobs anyway. Don’t hire them. Tell your kids to get better friends, ones with their heads held high and their egos in check. In any voluntary group, such as a civic group, one doesn’t have to include people whose values are obviously not in synch/sync with your own. If you home-school your kids, then make certain that their friends are as positive, uplifting, pro-America, honest, hard-working, race-blind and honorable as you are. And make sure, too, that the people with whom they associate are striving for those same qualities.

    THere was a time when Christians, in particular, wanted to be a light in the darkness, a beacon on the hill. That time persists, but we have to make certain, now, that we’re safely associated with each other, that the darkness is lit up by more than one or two or three: safety in numbers. There’s also a time and place to withdraw, to tend one’s own garden and put primary emphasis on one’s own family and the survival of like-minded citizens. That time, too, is now.

I’ve liked and have always taken an interest into listening to Trump has had to say ever since. I will admit before the Iowa primary I was confused on whether to pick Trump or Cruz. (I know, I know!) I kept flipping back and forth, until of course he pulled a fast one on Carson, and I had read about his wife and her connections to CFR and NAU. It was a complete turnaround thereafter with no confusion whatsoever.

      I know without a doubt my Mum would have been stumping for Trump. I just wish I could still talk politics with her on the phone and emails like we used to. She was so darn smart, and was always able to see things before others did. I know she would know who his VP choice would be, she’d have it right, it’s just who she was. Always ahead of everybody else. I miss our Matriarch.
      Sorry Drazil, my intention was to write only a few sentences, and the next thing I know it it took a life of its own. I’m thinking what you said hit extra hard because we always visited during July 4th. Be well, and have a beautiful July 4th day.

      The last time the people stood up to them, the elites sent out Pinkerton men and National Guardsmen to murder working class Americans. Think Ludlow Massacre and other such events where the people were tired of being worked like dogs for nothing.

      Guns won’t do squat unless they are wielded by men who aren’t afraid of dying and know who needs hot lead.

    I’ve seen this video clip numerous times over this election year. It’s amazing how right he had it all figured out. The audience seems to be in agreement as well, and how many years ago was this? A while.

    I don’t remember if it was in this show or one of his others where he explains why our votes don’t count. It used to tick me off because my husband would always use this argument against me when I would try to drag him and out vote. I think it’s a bit different this time around, I do believe our vote counts. However, Carlin did have it right earlier, and I can see that now.

    No, of course I haven’t admitted that to my husband yet, he hasn’t asked or brought it up, so I won’t say I was wrong just yet. Plus, for the first time ever in our marriage he wants to actually vote this time around. I’m thinking I will save this bit of news for that day when we go vote. Why not? Make the guy happy.

    I really do believe Carlin would’ve loved the Trump movement and how it has shaken up our global elites. He would’ve been one of the first on the Trump train. He was a heck of a smart guy, and I’ve always been a fan of his.

    My husband and I always wanted to see his show in Vegas. The time we did make it down he was taking a break, and then it wasn’t too many years later he passed away.
    I know he is making the Angels laugh and smile, it’s his God given talent. May he always be telling how it is.

      My husband and I did see his show in Vegas. Unfortunately, I took my four teenage daughters with us. I guess I had only heard him on Johnny Carson so I had no idea how “salty” his language could be – I just thought it would be fun to go see a comedian. Believe me, this bit was mild in comparison to the show that night. There was one person laughing louder than anyone else around us and that was my oldest daughter at age 17.

      I think I was too mortified about having them with us to really enjoy the show. Now, I wish I had listened more closely.

    • While you are thinking that your vote counts, ask yourself how john mccain keeps getting “elected” despite screwing his constituents over for 20 years or more. Then follow the money… sad, but true.

      Hence the reason Trump says what a lot of us have said for those 20 years or more, it takes a landslide victory of physical support to defeat the “new” world “order” psychopaths that prefer the term global philanthropists. Even the most “intellectually challenged” and “incapable of genuine liberalism” knows better than that term… and they’re stupid fakes.

    Mark Twain, Will Rogers, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and the torch went out.

    You can’t be part of the Establishment (SNL) and cross swords and skewer it.

    So now we have a hybrid. Trump, part savage critic, part political force, humorous, thinking critically.

    One reason his rallies are so much fun. They are Carlin-like concerts.

    But, understand, no single person is allowed to become a George Carlin again. That can’t happen on TV or night clubs.

    We have passed the point of no return. Humor cannot save us. It saves our sanity. It proves we are on the right path. But the war ahead is for everything. And it is life or death for America.

    As a long time Trump supporter who wanted him to run yrs ago, and a huuge Fan of Carlin, I’m very happy people are waking up. Understand this, I have read several of Carlins books, (his letters to his wife is great) his job as a comedian was to see things with cynicism and skepticism. So he would’ve been very hard on Trump, and rightfully so. I think Trump is going to be a fantastic President , but he will be no savior, we the people are the savior. Everything will not go perfect, Trump won’t be able to please all of us, and he certainly won’t be able to fix things without all of our help. If we the people don’t stay engaged Trump will fail, and if he is a success we must remain engaed or look what happened after Reagan

      Trump’s eight years in office is just scratching the surface. We are looking, I believe, at many years of fighting off the progressives before we can take a breather.

    “The “figuring out” is well underway, Trump has pulled back the curtain and fundamentally changed the perspectives of many within the electorate. That’s the reason why the corporate media must continue to go full-tilt against the risk to their enterprise/owners . . .”

    You are being commendably modest, Sundance, but your early efforts at deciphering the American political elites private “dark web” of hidden alliances played a vital role in sparking the “figuring out” that is now well underway. You weren’t entirely alone in this but you certainly were out there leading the charge. When it was critically important for someone with this knowledge to take the lead in defining these previously discretely hidden relationships, you were there—with a stunningly accurate analysis—when it counted. Thanks to your work, ideas like “GOPe” and “Uniparty” have entered into the common lexicon of the American body politic. I don’t think the American political landscape will ever be quite the same again.

    The interesting thing about insurgencies is that, once the dynamic of popular revolt begins it soon takes on a life of its own. Perhaps it’s a bit much to say that Trump might never have decided to run for President without your writings, but I think it’s definitely true (and something he has always acknowledged) that Trump was inspired to join our insurgency, putting his much welcomed leadership skills and resources into the fight at a time when they were critically needed. But, would the insurgency have the same shape and definition it now has without CTH and your work?
    I don’t think so.

    Donald Trump has brought something to American politics that we have virtually never encountered before. Trump not only has the consummate communication skills to lead and give ideological direction to a popular insurgency, he also has the personal resources to remain completely free of the behind-the-scenes obligations the GOPe has traditionally used to control its political alliances.

    Seeing this happen, it is not at all surprising to watch the establishment’s media “consiglieres” collectively pee their pants as Trump has forced them to reveal loyalties they would have preferred to keep discrete. Formally stalwart conservative publications like National Review and The Weekly Standard, writers like Bill Kristol, George Will, media voices like Glenn Beck and, sadly, Mark Levin have been brought, kicking and screaming, to a point where they have to admit to a public that admired and respected them, that their true political values are much closer to the progressive-fascism of a Hillary Clinton presidency than they are to the popular conservatism of the insurgency and Donald Trump. This, alone, tells us a lot. After the American Revolution there wasn’t much room here for the Tories who supported the Crown. GO TRUMP!!

    So true. It was always true. The difference was 30 years ago the “owners” were willing to let the general populace have a little more and do a little better. So most were relatively happy. In the last 15 years they have decided they want a lot more and you will have to accept a lot less. And now most people are increasingly in debt, have an increasingly lower standard of living, and are getting very very unhappy. When the balance gets too out of whack it leads to revolution, often violent. Hope they make changes to head that off.

  41. I couldn’t agree more with Carlin. The foundation for what is bad about this country is built on the educational system. As stated by Dr. Martin Luther King the purpose of education is to teach the ability to think critically. The introduction of computers and calculators into the classroom is eliminating the necessity of critical thinking thus the real ability to think and learn. To recover this country replacing the educational system is the most basic requirement.

    I appreciate this “blast from the past,” but Carlin, as amusing as he sometimes was, basically made his way following the same path as other so-called comics of the time–using shock and nervous laughter as a substitute for actual wit. Carlin was a little better at it, but basically, he was just a universal iconoclast, caught in the same swirl that all atheists ultimately get caught in. Like a broken clock, he was right when reality happened to coincide with his directionless flailing.

    In the USA political world of the late 20th century and early 21st, he was in a target rich environment. It’s not appropriate to associate him with a real hero, but this “quote” comes to mind: “So they’ve got us surrounded, good! Now we can fire in any direction. Those b*****ds won’t get away this time!” ~ Lt. Gen. Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller, USMC. Mr. Trump, today, compares more favorably with Gen. Puller, because though he attacks foes on every side, he has direction.
