Wingnut Wrapup

So, here's my latest collection of idiocy to force on you.  Of course, some might think that applies to my other posts, but there you go...

Tea  "Ebola Outbreak Can Lead to Gun Confiscations, Martial Law...The Obama administration is perpetrating the conditions required for a government-declared crisis...Gun confiscations and martial law are both plausible government responses to an Ebola outbreak in America considering recent policies by the Obama administration"

Thanks, Obama.

John Hawkins, Town Hall: "Obama's 15 Worst Excuses For His Failed Presidency"

I can't say that I really bothered to read this article, but the first real "excuse" is that the Republican party has sabotaged this country for the last six years. The other excuses are all irrelevant.

John C. Goodman, Town Hall:  "Three Cheers for Ryan’s Plan...Ryan’s approach is based on well-known conservative ideas"

That's for sure- at least it's based on one well-known conservative idea- screwing the American people so the rich can get richer.

Ken Blackwell, Town Hall:  "Needed: Housing Reform That Protects Property Rights"

I.e. no housing reform at all.  As usual, anything that doesn't benefit the banks and mortgage companies is a "job killer."

PJ Media:  "Hamas Boasts About Its Capture of IDF Soldier ... Then Backtracks Four Times "

Well, that puts them ahead of Conservatives, who just move on to the next lie when their phony claims are revealed for what they are.

Stephen Cruzer, PJ Media:  ‘Blame Cruz’ Is the New ‘Blame Bush’ for Whiny Democrats"

I think you meant "laugh at Cruz," Stephen.

Michelle Fields, PJ Media: "Should Teen Dating Be Treated Like Driving, Including a License?"

Stupid idea of the month?  Of the year?  Of the century? 

PJ Media Editors:  "Hot Topic: What Is the Most Impeachable Offense Committed by President Obama?"

Being black.  That was an easy one.

Walter Hudson, PJ Media:  "Hamas: A Litmus Test for Libertarians...Ayn Rand Institute executive director Yaron Brook offers insight into why so many professing libertarians support Hamas over Israel."

Cut the crap, Walter.  It's because most right wingers are anti-semitic pigs, Libertarians included.

Susan D. Harris, Renew America:  "The United States of America -- the most radical concept in the history of the world"

Really?  And here I thought it was when someone invented the fuzz tone.

Dan Popp, Renew America:  "If God, then impeachment"

A perfect example of how the impeachment howlers have nothing.  And Dan, be glad that Socrates lived 2,000 years ago.  If he heard you use that as an example of a syllogism, he'd crack your head like a walnut.

Alan Caruba, Renew America:  "The war on smoking (except maybe pot)"

Alan is enraged because we've suddenly decided to treat tobacco more harshly than Marijuana.  You think maybe that's because 500,000 American die every year from tobacco consumption, and no one in the history of the world has ever been known to die from smoking pot, Alan?

Alan continues:

"We have gone through two World Wars, the Great Depression, the Cuban trade embargo, smoking bans, excessive taxation and competition from low-wage countries," co-owner (of a cigar factory) Eric Newman  told The New York Times, but the FDA may put it out of business."

Great. That would be doing their job- protecting people from killer drugs.  Naturally, of course, Alan doesn't give a damn about anything but eliminating some more government regulations, so corporations can make more money murdering people.  That's all these guys are ever after.

Diana West, Right Side News:  "Future Americans Will Ask: Why Didn't Congress Impeach Obama When It Could?  How will future generations look back on our gravest national emergency of all time?"

Greater than the Civil War.  Greater than World War II.  Greater than Spanish Flu, polio, cancer.  Greater than Communism.  Greater than any of those things- a black man in the White House.  A more pertinent question: how will future generations look back on us if white people do succeed in impeaching him?  Hint: remember the disgust that the last Republican "impeachment" generated?  This will make that look like a pleasant diversion.

John Ransom, Town Hall:  "As we commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the war meant to end all wars, we should not forget that we still have a president who said that he means to be the president to end all wars."

He did? I don't remember that.  Do You?  I don't think John Ransom does either, because he never quotes Obama as ever having said any such thing.  But I guess a little thing like that doesn't matter, does it?  Tommorrow:  John Ransom, Town Hall:  "...we still have a president who has sex with donkeys in the White House barn."

Joseph Farah, World Net Daily:  "Impeach Obama, or write off process forever...Exclusive: Joseph Farah declares, 'Crimes he's committed against Constitution are breathtaking'

The only "crime" Joseph seems to be able to think of today, is the long discredited IRS "scandal."  Other than that, well, he tells us to trust him, that there are plenty more Obama crimes.  Trust Joseph Farah?  Not too likely. 

Jeannie De Angeles, American Thinker:  "Does 'No Impeachment' Fulfill Alinsky's Rule #4?"

God in heaven above, Jeannie, give it a rest already.  Alinsky.  Really.

Guy Benson, Town Hall:  "Obamacare: Florida Consumers Slammed with Double-Digit Premium Spike"

Florida, huh?  And that would be despite Florida's Republican government doing everything it could to make Obamacare work, right?  Thanks, Obama.

Jonah Goldberg, World's Dumbest Person Who Actually Gets Paid to Say Anything:* "Liberals Come Late to the Pot Party"

Yes, Jonah is now trying to convince us that it was actually Conservatives who were for pot legalization.  Just like Liberals are the real racists, and Republicans are the real ones who want to help the poor.  And just like Jonah's other claim, that Hitler was a liberal.  He wrote a whole book about that one.  Man, I wish my mother had been a treacherous, backstabbing right wing liar, so I could have a job writing things that stupid too.

Betsey Mc Caughey, Newsmax:  "Many American hospitals unready for ebola"

Let's hope so, Betsey.  Being "ready for ebola" means constructing a biohazard level four containment facility.  That requires lots of $10,000 doors, a negative pressure system with backup, a multistage decontamination area, and on and on.  Given the fact that there has never been a case of ebola in the United States, is Betsey really suggesting that every hospital in the country should have one of these?  In fact, when I was working on the movie Outbreak, about a dozen years ago, there were only four BL-4 facilities in the entire country.  When ebola hit, hemorrhagic fever became sort of fashionable and a whole bunch more of these things have been built since, despite the fact that none has ever been needed to contain a person with ebola.   Oh well, I presume this is just the start of a campaign to blame Obama for something or other.  Of course, we should consider the possibility that Betsey is just getting paid by the people who make those $10,000 doors, sort of the way things work in the defense industry.

And now, it's Thanks, Obama Time:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "GENOCIDE! Obama Letting Iraqi Children Die of Thirst – 25,000 at Risk"

Damn you, Obama- won't you at least let them drink out of the White House garden hose?  And just for the few of you that might still believe that no wingnut could be this stupid, here's a little more from Jim:

"Obama is letting Iraqi children die a horrible death of thirst after their families were driven out of their homes by the bloodthirsty Islamist savages Obama allowed to take over large swaths of Iraq in the past year without any resistance by Obama’s government"

And just what should Obama have done, Jim?  And are you even going to try to pretend that if Obama had aided the Iraqi Shiite government, you'd be screaming about Obama linking up with Iran, and demanding that he should be impeached for that?

But Jim isn't done being stupid:

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "GOP GOVERNOR: Obama Is Asking Us to Divert Resources Away From Our Own Children...Governor Mary Fallin (R-OK) wrote a column today where she explains how Obama’s illegal immigrant children are diverting resources away from the state’s own citizens.  The Daily Signal reported:  "On June 13, the first bus of illegal immigrant minors, aged 12-17, arrived at Fort Sill, Oklahoma."

Yes, that's right- one bus of children.  That is taking resources away from the children of Oklahoma.  All of the tax breaks for the rich and for oil companies- well that is a great thing.  But feeding some poor children fleeing from violence in their homeland, well that's just going too far.  Jim is all for this attitude, and I guess that pretty much tells us all we need to know about Jim.  Now that Obama has in fact air-dropped water to those Iraqi children, Jim will soon be screaming about how that is taking food out of the mouths of the children in Oklahoma too.  Of course if Obama did give aid to the children of Oklahoma, Jim would be screeching about how he was taking food out of the mouths of the Koch brothers.

Conservatives ought to adore Israel!

Here's Why:

"A poll conducted by the Israeli news and entertainment site Mako reveals a majority of respondents want to send an envelope containing the deadly Ebola virus to President Obama for his 53 birthday."

Conservativebyte says, "Sounds like a well deserved present."

He deserves it! He wants to give our homeland to murderous Gentiles - we need to exterminate those snakes instead.

Lev, I could not say it better!

Green Eagle said...

I don't know what Mako has to say because it is all in Hebrew, and you know what, Lev, or whatever your real name is? I bet you don't have a clue either. The article you linked to credits its story to Alex Jones, one of the most notorious anti-Semitic liars in the world today.

Great source there.

My name is Lev.

My stupid cousin pointed the article out to me. Here's another link.

I know Israelis aren't wingnuts. The Jews aren't, but Israel's Arabs are. That doesn't make 46%. They want him to get Ebola, but I know they can't be wingnuts. What do I tell my cousin about the NBC story?

I've been teaching myself. Did your parents try to keep you away from the language, too?
