If the Bush administration and the establishment media had their way, every American would think of the famous rock star of the 60’s, Chubby Checker (of “the Twist” fame), any time anyone mentioned Kevin Bacon’s name. That’s right, the Bush administration and the US media would describe Kevin Bacon as “linked to Chubby Checker” because Chubby Checker was in the movie “Purple People Eater” with Dustin Diamond who was in the TV show “Saved by the Bell: The New Class”, with Michal Worth, who was in the movie “Acapulco H.E.A.T.”, with John Veron, who was in the movie “Animal House” with none other than Kevin Bacon. The link can not be denied. The link is clear and as Dick Cheney would say. “pretty much confirmed!”
Now many of you know that the “Kevin Bacon equation of association”, or as I like to call it A=KB-6, (Association = Kevin Bacon 6 times removed), comes from the grassroots phenomenon known as Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. It is a trivia game where someone names an actor and the players have to find a link to Keven Bacon based on the type of association that I used in the prior paragraph. It’s a fun game, and for the most part any knowledgeable movie buff can pretty much find a link between Kevin Bacon and just about any major actor of our generation.
So goes the logic that brings us the infamous “al Qaeda” linked terrorist. You see in the eyes of the Bush administration and according to the clearly complicit establishment media, the word “link” is used in its most literal interpretation. All one has to do in order to tag someone with a link to al Qaeda is to apply the A=KB-6 equation. When you use that equation it does not take much to qualify for being linked to al Qaeda these days, unless you are a member of the Bush family. You know, the same Bush family that has direct, official and “pretty much confirmed” links to the bin Laden family. You know…the bin Laden family that has “pretty much confirmed” links to the member of the bin Laden family known as Osama bin Laden. But that link doesn’t really count! Not to the establishment media, anyway.
The big difference between using the A=KB-6 equation to tag someone as an al Qaeda terrorist, and playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is that when you play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon you have to elaborate and define the link, in complete detail, before you are given credit for your accusation. But the Bush administration and the criminal establishment media simply make a declaration that the link exists and they are done. They do not have to define the link in any way, and the public, so brainwashed by the establishment media, does not even think to question the claim. We are not sure how many hops have to be made until you see an actual connection. Then again, we are not exactly sure what the definitive heart of “al Qaeda” is, so we are not sure what link we have to reach in order to establish the actual connection.
One of the many problems with this scenario is that an idiot like Elizabeth Hasselbeck of the TV show “The View” repeats that link on TV to justify her approval for the Bush administration’s obliteration of Iraq as she argues with Rosie O’Donnell over the killing of innocent civilians by US troops. Then the millions of people who watch “The View” repeat Hasselbeck’s unsubstantiated claims of al Qaeda linked entities in Iraq, even though the links are never actually defined for these people and these people never bother to question the claims for themselves. But we all know that we should simply believe people on TV who show support for whatever our government is doing…otherwise they are not patriots! Right? Actually, that is a separate issue…but technically, by virtue of the A=KB-6 equation, it is connected to this discussion;-)
There is an episode of the cartoon South Park where the kids who star in the show are taken on a hunting trip with a couple of gung-ho gun freak hunters. You know, kind of like Dick Cheney, only these guys don’t murder, they hunt. (Cheney murders animals…he goes on so called hunting trips, but what really happens is that is he goes to farms and the owners of the farms release caged animals in the form of birds that can not even fly, a few dozen yards from Cheney, so that he can satisfy is psychopathic thirst for death by murdering a hundred or so of them.) Anyway, the gung-ho South Park hunters pretty much shoot any animal they want to, without hunting permits, even if the animal is out of season and poses no threat to the hunters. But the hunters taught the kids how to get around the law when it comes to killing things illegally and when it is not warranted by self defense; just prior to opening fire the hunter has to yell out “LOOK OUT, IT’S HEADED RIGHT TOWARDS US!” You see, this way the illegal kills made by the hunters appears to be justified by self defense. Technically the hunters can say that the animal appeared to pose a threat to them, even if the animal was a baby rabbit or something like that. Pretty smart, huh?
The Bush administration and the US media use the South Park hunting justification argument in their never ending war on humanity. I call it the “applying the terror tag”. And there is no better terror tag to apply to your target than one that reads “al Qaeda!” Yes, the mysterious mystical “al Qaeda” organization, whatever that may be, scares the b’jeezus out of the average uninformed American. So all you have to do in order to justify a kill these days is use the Kevin Bacon equation of association. Find a link between your target and “al Qaeda”, no matter how many degrees of separation exist, place your tag, have the media announce the link and start shooting! It is a clear formula, easily followed and proven effective on the catatonic viewers of the establishment media.
So, you see, today’s claimed “al Qaeda linked” targets of the Bush administration are just as linked to al Qaeda as Kevin Bacon is linked to boxing promoter Don King! (Look it up…it’s there;-) I made sure to “pretty much confirm” my claim! But what exactly do these links actually mean? Do they mean anything at all? Think about it!
