Wingnut Wrapup

And here we go again- our little foray into America's own sinkhole of mental degeneration, otherwise known as the Republican party.

Let's just start off with a perfect example of the thrust of the coming Republican presidential campaign:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit FEATURED STORY:  "Obama’s New Campaign Slogan “Forward!” Is a Hitler Youth Marching Tune"

Good point there, Jim.  We get what you are trying to tell us.  Of course, "Forward" was also the name of a famous Yiddish newspaper:

 Man, imagine the Nazi propaganda that must be right in front of our eyes, if only we could read Yiddish.

I wonder how that fits into your theory.  Maybe people who spoke Yiddish were Nazis too.  Think about it and get back to us with your conclusions.

And let's follow that offering of Jim's with possibly the most preposterous right wing lie of the month:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Horror!… Neo-Nazi #Occupy Phoenix Protester Goes On Shooting Rampage – 5 Dead"

Yes, J.T. Ready, a life long Republican who ran for State office on the Republican ticket, a member of a right wing militia, an open neo-Nazi, a close associate of some of the top Republicans in the State of Arizona, including Russell Pearce, the Republican who wrote the infamous Arizona anti-immigrant legislation, the founder of an anti-immigrant border "guard," is actually a left wing #occupy member.  Oh well, I guess we should be thankful for small things.  At least Hoft didn't embrace this guy as a brave fellow Conservative who died a martyr to the cause when he murdered four family members before killing himself.

Moe Lane, Red State:  "    Q. “Should student loans be priced differently according to major?”  A. Yes...Because Life Is Not Fair."

Hey, there it is in black and white!  The Republican answer for everything.  "Q. Should rich guys worth $200 million pay a lower tax rate than you?  A. Yes...Because Life Is Not Fair."  "Q. Should you lose your social security and medical coverage so the Koch Brothers can be worth another $20 billion or so? A. Yes...Because Life Is Not Fair."  "Q. Should Republicans be allowed to destroy the economy, and then get back into power four years later?  A. Yes...Because Life Is Not Fair."  See? We can understand it all now.

Katy Kieffer, Town Hall:  "Your doctor won’t tell you this when you’re sitting in his office, so I will: He hates Obamacare."

Yes. folks,every doctor in the United States is in on the conspiracy, and not a single one of them will tell the truth.  I guess they learned this behavior from those crooked climate scientists, or maybe the Mafia guys in all those old movies.

Lisa DePasquale, Town Hall:  "Over the years I’ve noticed that converts to the conservative cause seem to make the most effective leaders"

The ones that were conservative from the beginning are still trying to learn to tie their shoes.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Now You Know… New Research Shows Wind Farms Cause Global Warming"

If you believe that one, you don't follow Jim very closely.  Just one more creative lie from one of the masters of the art.

Abraham H. Miller, PJ Media:  "Drawing the Wrong Lessons from the Rodney King Riots..."Root causes" are nothing more than another series of liberal myths."

Of course they are.  Those riots weren't about injustice, no...they were nothing but the natural behavior of animalistic, savage Negroes.  Every Conservative knows that.

Pam Geller, American Thinker:  "Obama 2012: Stealing Bush's Legacy"

Don't you worry your little head over that, Pammy.  Bush's "legacy" is secure forever.  Wars of aggression, economic collapse, torture, colossal military blunders, corruption beyond anything ever seen in Washington before- no, Pammy,no one can take that legacy away from Bush.  Count on it.

Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "Veterans Group Slams Obama:  Veterans for a Strong America, a non-partisan veteran and military support group, is hitting President Obama for "spiking the football" on the one year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death."

Non-partisan...The only thing that I have been able to discover about "Veterans for a Strong America" is that it is headed by someone named Joel Arends.  Here's Joel:

"Arends is listed in May 2007 as a paid staffer for Republican 2008 presidential hopeful John McCain.[5] At an August 8, 2007, O'Brien County Republican Summer Gala in Paullina, Iowa, Arends was described as "now a surrogate for Senator McCain's campaign".

Arends, "who unsuccessfully ran for the Iowa [Statehouse] while living in Sioux City in 2000",[4] is cited in an August 14, 2007, e-letter as National Field Director of the pro-war in Iraq Republican front group Vets for Freedom.

Also in August 2007, Arends was identified as the replacement for Craig Dewey as Americans for Prosperity's South Dakota Assistant State Director."

Americans for Prosperity is a front group funded by the Koch brothers.  Non-partisan.  Uh huh.

Town Hall:  "Romney: Obama shouldn't use bin Laden in campaign"

Of course, Romney doesn't want Obama to use anything in his campaign.  He should just lay there and let Romney and his right wing thugs spread endless lies about him.  That's the only way that a Democrat should be allowed to campaign for re-election.  Now, here's a perfect example of unfair Democratic tactics:

Town Hall:  "Obama ad accuses Romney of outsourcing US jobs"

Telling the truth!  That should be clearly out of bounds.  You will never catch Mitt stooping to such a thing.

Allen West:  "Obama “has never served his country in uniform, or risked his life to defend its freedoms and liberties on distant shores.”

Of course, he also wasn't kicked out of the military for committing war crimes, Allen.

Unlike you.

And now, a couple of harbingers of the nauseating level on which the Republicans are going to conduct their campaign for President:

Daren Jonescu, American Thinker:  "Does it bother you that the most powerful man on the planet was a longtime drug user?  Does it bother you that he has attempted to use his drug abuse to gain credibility with young Americans?  Does it bother you that his acknowledgment of having been a serious drug user has been given a pass in the news media?"

Oh, I don't know.  A "serious drug user"  who overcame his problem, whatever it was, to earn a law degree from Harvard, become a law professor, a State Senator, a U.S. Senator and President.  Don't forget that part.  And by the way, does it bother you that Romney destroyed thousands of jobs so he could get $20 million a year for doing nothing while his wife raises dressage horses?  "Obama Launches Campaign in Empty Arena "

Well, empty except for the 14,000 that showed up:

"The Obama campaign told reporters the president drew 14,000 to his first rally of the day in Ohio and 8,000 to his rally at VCU. While the Ohio speech left about 4,000 empty seats in the arena on the campus of Ohio State University, both crowds dwarfed anything Romney’s been able to draw so far."

Just in case you'd like to see for yourself, here's a picture of the Obama rally:

You might like to contrast this with the following picture of a recent Romney rally in Michigan:
Well, I guess that really shows what a failure Obama is.  Keep believing your own hype, guys, and see how that works out for you.  "Obama Urges High School Students to Lobby Congress"

The nerve!  Only rich people have a right to lobby Congress.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Obama Knew About OBL’s Hideout in Abbottabad Since Summer of 2010 – Refused to Act Until May"

And then he acted.  You forgot to mention that part, Jim.

Republicans have to lie. The truth is not them.

It's all they've got.

More impressive than the couple hundred that show up to hear Romney is that they can find a black and a hispanic to put in the seats behind him each time.
