SPEAKING CRAP TO POWER

A SPECIAL EDITORIAL
BY
REMULAK MOXARGON

Greetings puny Earthlings.

I'd like to take a moment to discuss what I consider to be the most horrifying blight upon the Earthling language.

The phrase "Speaking Truth to Power."

Please stop using that hackneyed piece of bastardized newspeak or I'll be forced to break out the plasma cannons and make you stop.

It claims to mean people taking a brave stand against the powerful (AKA The Man) who aims to keep them down.

However, claims and reality are often very different.

In the real universe where ordinary people live, "speaking truth to power" has come to mean often rich, self-righteous, fascist coddling, closet-bigoted, hypocrites spewing out the same old, and often bogus, talking points in the most ill-mannered and obnoxious way possible.

So please stop.









Don't make me come down there.

O' Mighty Moxargon, master of all you survey and conquerer of all you desire, hear the pleas of this lowly, but devoted sycophant: Please blast every elitist asshat that ever spews this retarded phrase with your phase interrupter rifles or some equally destructive weapon as you see fit. Pretty please...with sugar on top.
