Wingnut Wrapup

Short and sweet today. I think the Dow hitting 10,000 took a little of the wind out of their sails:

World Net Daily: "Obama's spending to blame for declining dollar"

Of course the dollar lost 50% of its value during the Bush administration. Man, what an evil guy- He launched his destruction of the American economic system when he was in the Illinois State Legislature, before anyone outside the state knew who he was.

Lloyd Marcus, Renew America: "If Rush Limbaugh is a racist, are his 20 million listeners also?"

Yes. Simple answers to simple questions, Lloyd.

Sher Zieve, Renew America: "Obama plans to destroy us as quickly and completely as is possible."

Where would we be without Sher to explain things to us? Sher continues:

"And rumor has it that we will be forced to dig our own graves. Is this truly what we wanted?"

No, I have to agree with you there, Sher. Not very many of us really want to dig our own graves.

Off your meds again, girl?

Mike "gamecock" DeVine, Red State: "How Limbaugh’s embodiment of MLK’s dream changed my life"

Limbaugh's embodiment of MLK's dream. That would be the day that fat, rich right wing drug addicts would have an equal opportunity with the rest of us to go on the radio and lie their asses off, I guess. Boy, that's a day that we have all been yearning for.

And yes, this idiot did call himself "gamecock." There's a joke there, but even Green Eagle won't touch that one.

Confederate Yankee: "Apparently someone in Lakeville, MA decided that vandalizing a golf course was the best way to vent their disgust with President Obama, carving into the green " I 娨Obama." But even a casual glance at the defaced green immediately tells you something is off: The swastika is facing counterclockwise. Instead of insisting Obama is a stealth Muslim, are some on the fringe now contending he is a Buddhist? Symbols, like words, mean things."

Of course, it never occurred to Mr. Yankee that the guy who put the swastikas on the lawn was just an ignorant right wing would be Nazi, right? I guess, if there's one thing right wingers would never make a mistake about, it would be the proper display of Nazi symbolism.

Much more likely that they were trying to say something about Buddhism.

Power Line: "In less than three years in Congress, our friend Michele Bachmann has become one of the conservative movement's most visible spokesmen. Michele is smart, articulate and telegenic. As a result she has become a cable TV regular."

She's smart, articulate and telegenic. So that's why you think she gets so much attention, huh? Boy, you guys don't get it, do you?

Larry Kudlow, National Review Online: "Dow Hits 10,000 as Storm Clouds Gather "

Because of course, no matter what happens, it can't be good for Obama. The Dow going back up must be some sort of disaster, right?

Joe the Plumber, Regular Folks United: "When Government No Longer Listens"

Deal with it, Joe: when you speak, nobody is listening any more. You had your chance to rake in a few dollars telling the usual lies, and now everyone is bored with you. Back under the sink, Joe.

Regular Folks United: "Explaining the rise of the tea party movement as racist and mindless followers of Glenn Beck would ignore the belief system that led many to protest for the first time in their life."

No it wouldn't. It would be what we out here in the real world call "true." I know that's a foreign (probably French) concept to you "regular" people.

And in closing, this from Pamela Schuffert, author of "The SATANIST PARAMILITARY Preparing to Attack CHRISTIANS in USA Under MARTIAL LAW" and "The Horrors of Being MICROCHIPPED: DON'T Accept the SWINE FLU VACCINATION!":

"...But My Family Thinks I Am CRAZY..." You Are NOT ALONE!"

You sure aren't, whoever you are. You've got Pamela right with you, anyway.

when the swastika faces backwards, it means "luck". The normal swastika means "love", believe it or not. Imagine if hitler hadn't used it, instead used our stereotypical heart? We'd write I *swastika* You instead of I <3 You.


Green Eagle said...

Yeah, but I bet not one person in a thousand knows the right way the Nazi swastika faced. I just thought it was funny that this guy tried to argue away the obvious meaning of this act, on such patently ludicrous grounds.

The swastika is facing counterclockwise. ...

I assumed the nut who carved it did it from underneath!

It's extremely ancient and common on temples in the Orient today. It was also reversed Nazi-fashion from the 16th century by the Tsugaru samurai clan, who held a domain in northern Japan and used it as their motif. They probably weren't the only ones either.

Grung_e_Gene said...

Placing a symbol near Obama's name proves he is not a christian and therefore is not eligible to be the American President.


Green Eagle said...

Yeah, but it's a symbol they really like, given how they carry it around so much at their tea parties.

Derek said...

There are some similarities between the National Socialists of the 1930s/40s and the Democrats of today.

No point denying it.
