.. and Alex made all this happen in just the first seven minutes of the interview.
You could go back in the archives and comb through the history of television in this country and never find seven minutes like this. Never.
It broke through the fake civility of moronic, pundit-driven, stacked-to-the-ceiling-with-utter-bullshit news programs like a car driving through a showroom window at 80mph.
Then tell yourself you're not dreaming, because you're not. It happened.
If you were, by chance, tuned to the BCS championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame and missed the real slaughter on CNN, catch it.
According to Alex, one of Piers' producers broke down and cried during the interview. Oh dear. Horrid. I hope the producer had friends to console her in their little mutually constructed elite bubble. Cocktails, tranqs, perhaps a visit to a shrink might be in order. No doubt, this is a case of PTSD, and might necessitate a long recovery.
No, the idiots at CNN were definitely not ready for this. They were blindsided. Piers tried to remain calm. That was his only strategy. He would be the voice of reason. Stiff upper lip and all that.
It worked about as well as waving a feather in front of a typhoon.
Which, when you think about it, is how the people of England handle their fascist government and their falling-apart society. "Look at us, we're clueless with feathers."
No doubt Piers is telling himself he stood up to the cave man from Texas, revealing to the American people how pernicious gun owners are. But that wasn't it. That wasn't it all.
Instead, this was cardboard television reality taking a dozen torpedoes amidships.
Alex did it exactly the way you're supposed to do it when you want to destroy the whole stinking mess all at once. You give no quarter. You go on the attack from the first moment. You don't let up.
You ignore the nicey-nice stuff.
I'm sure there are some boomer gun advocates out there who think Alex "presented an unfortunate face of the responsible gun-owner community." They're dead wrong. They don't understand what an attack against tyranny requires. They never have.
You put the fascists on the defensive. That's rule number one. You put them through the wall into the next county. You hit them with the truth so hard they never recover. That's the goal.
It happened last night.
I watched the whole curtain of the television Matrix explode. I watched it with a joy that comes from knowing, for a long time, what such a moment would look like if it ever came to pass.
Then it did.
Thank you, CNN. This was your finest moment, your only authentic moment in all your years of building an insane consensus about reality.
Thanks, Alex. You came through like a champion.
