For some odd reason this episode ended up being basically about fascism. It didn't start out that way, and the show itself probably didn't want to be that way, but it kept returning to that subject one way or another. In fact it did it on and off for three weeks of Rev. Stang and Lonesome Cowboy Dave calling in to Dr. Sinister's Radio Synaesthesia on WCSB Cleveland (Stang being away in rural Texas all December). We compressed those three shows, flensed out the worst drunk callers, and interspersed it with a powerful SubGenius media barrage by Rev. Cool Hand Chris Blatter plus a song by The Fantastic Plastics. Open carry in Texas, The Technocrats, selling dumb stuff to rich people, creating news events, goat fascism, Second Amendment and nuke silos, GovMart, armed Amazon drones, St. Penisburg, Legos, Minecraft and fascism, The Dobbshead Magic 8-Ball, these and other delicate subjects are broached and tackled or at least tickled. For a feel-good climax that's only on the Internet version of this episode, we tacked on a refreshing piece of political incorrectness from the 1970s: DOLEMITE FOR PRESIDENT by the late great St. Rudy Ray Moore, SubGenius Saint of Poetry.
