Wingnut Wrapup

Sorry about the lack of posts lately.  I've been pretty busy here in Baton Rouge, and frankly, right wingers' behavior lately has been so predictable that it's like a joke you've already heard.  Anyway, here's what they have been "thinking" these days:

Thomas Sowell, Town Hall:  "Baltimore is now paying the price for irresponsible words and actions, not only by young thugs in the streets, but also by its mayor and the state prosecutor, both of whom threw the police to the wolves, in order to curry favor with local voters."

They are NOT paying the price, apparently, of allowing a murderous police department to run out of control for decades, as long as they confined their abuses to black people.  No, no, it's all the fault of people who think there is something wrong with killer policemen.  And let me just observe that, once again, Conservatives have managed to see to it that their most disgusting hatred comes out of the mouth of a black man.

Leon H. Wolf, Red State:  "Democrats Set to Nominate Unlikable Harpy"

Yeah, and she is going to win, too.  Because compared to Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz, she is America's sweetheart.

Seton Motley, Red State:  "Free Trade: Less Government Everywhere Means Cheaper Stuff Here"

Yeah, but it also means no one here will have jobs to earn the money to pay for that cheap stuff.  Forgot to mention that point, huh, Seton?

Streiff, Red State:  "...Denny Hastert’s indictment is a danger to us all"

Well, let's just say, all of us that molest children. Maybe that's the only kind of people that Streiff knows, but none of Green Eagle's friends seem to feel that endangered by Denny getting caught.  Streiff has this to add:

"To be clear, I don’t really care what Hastert did to be blackmailed... we have moved past the point where we should be outraged about a teacher diddling a student."

Well, maybe you Republican family values guys have, at least when it's one of your own doing the "diddling," i.e. raping.  The rest of us, not so much.  And by the way, Conservatives, nice work there trying to convince people that this story is about blackmail, not screwing children.  It didn't work, but I guess it's the best line you have in the face of this colossal humiliation.

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media:  "Keep Hillary-Slayer Carly in this Thing...Fiorina is the anti-Hillary and by far the best positioned to put paid to the Witch of Chappaqua."

The witch of Chappaqua.  I'm so glad that the coming Presidential election is going to be contested on the high road.

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker:  "Evidence mounts that Hillary's campaign in crisis... The sort of humiliating failure the MSM won't report until there is a viable alternative for the Democratic nomination."

The sort of humiliating failure that the press won't report because it doesn't exist.  Still, to a Republican, what difference does that make?

And now a new high in Conservative thinking:

Jonah Goldberg, Town Hall:  "Lawfare is Killing the Death Penalty...It's true that the death penalty has become wildly expensive. But why? Shouldn't executions cost less than lifetime room and board? The reason is simple. For decades, the anti-capital punishment bar has flooded courts with expensive appeals and challenges..."

Well, there you go.  If you just stop allowing people on trial for their lives the luxury of a lawyer (A.K.A. "Lawfare"- what a cute name)  the government could get on with killing lots of people really fast.  In fact, why not just eliminate criminal courts altogether, which would save a ton of money for more corporate tax breaks?  Just let the police execute anyone, whenever they feel like it...oh wait, that's sort of what we've got already.  And it's working so well.

Moe Lane, Red State:  "King v. Burwell and the Democratic Abyss....The Democrats have no plans to deal with King v. Burwell, past pretending that it’s still 2009."

The Democrats have still not announced a plan to save the Republican party from the consequences of its savage, heartless attack on Obamacare.  Because isn't that the way things work in this country?  Republicans screw things up and then it's the Democrats' responsibility to fix them, right?  Well, here's my plan: make sure that every one of the millions who will lose their medical insurance because of Republican corruption knows exactly what happened and who is responsible.  That should do the trick.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "It's an Obama world...Obama Arrests & Deports El Salvadorian General Who Reduced Death Squad Killings"

Of course, victims of torture in El Salvador won a $54 million dollar judgment against him, but he REDUCED death squad killings, which means, I guess, that he killed slightly fewer innocent civilians than the guy before him.  So what's all the fuss about?  After all, at the Denny Hastert rate, that court judgment only amounts to about fifteen raped high school wrestlers.

Ellis Washington, Renew America:  "CBS News anchor, Walter Cronkite, the Communist-Progressive oracle of the Democrat Socialist Party for decades had the false reputation that his words was LAW...
You see America Cronkite and all of the other Leftist cue card readers we deify as "Network TV Anchors" aren't that smart at all. They're what the father of Soviet Communism, Vladimir Lenin called "Useful Idiots" who zealously and ignorantly promote the Communist-Progressive Revolution at the expense of destroying the Judeo-Christian traditions of their own country.
Now these fake government funded 'scientists' and Marxist academics are all crowing about anthropogenic (man-caused) Global Warming, and when the people starting digging themselves out of record snow storms on the east coast last year, now these academic frauds scream Climate Change! It's all lies designed to enslave you and your future generations in the chains of Socialism slavery. Don't believe in man-caused Global Warming. We don't have that kind of power."

Walter Cronkite.  Walter fucking Cronkite.  Who are they going to dig up from the past to attack now, Kukla, Fran and Ollie?  And what an amazingly worthless hook to hang Ellis' lying about global warming on.  Come on, guy, can't you see how pathetic your attacks on Democrats are when you have to base them on a newscaster whose career was so long ago that he announced the death of JFK?

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker:  "Clinton Foundation set-up fundraising arm in Sweden as Iran sanctions deliberated at Hillary's State Department"

Sweden.  Boy, there's a flimsy pretext on which to base a supposed scandal.  Once again, it shows just how little they have been able to dig up about Obama or Hillary.  But to Conservative eyes,

"This looks exactly like a shakedown racket."

Only to an idiot.  Of course, for Conservatives, just about everything is a shakedown racket.  When you're a hammer, as they say, everything looks like a nail.

Rick Moran, PJ Media:  "Graduation Ceremony Goes Full-On Nazi...Kicked out of event for shouting out the name of their loved one."

The family was then packed into a boxcar, taken to Poland, gassed and cremated.  What, they weren't?  Then what's with the "full-on Nazi" thing?  Some people seem to have really forgotten what the Nazis were.

World Net Daily:  "Clinton Foundation donors gassed own citizens"
You mean like this?

Boy, am I glad that nothing like that would ever happen in our country.

Moe Lane, Red State:  "NYT’s @arappeport & @steveeder obediently vomit up American Bridge Lefty oppo...The New York Times Friday report that Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and his wife Jeanette have been cited 17 times for traffic violations was written after the citations were pulled by liberal opposition research firm American Bridge, according to Miami-Dade County court records."

No claim that the information is not true, of course.  Moe creates a new standard in journalism:  if anyone else on earth has already discovered an embarrassing fact about a Republican, the New York Times is forbidden to ever mention it.

Jim Fletcher, World Net Daily:  "What was once a fine idea – the first five minutes someone had it 60 years ago – has become one of those classic scenes you want to look away from, but can’t.

I’m speaking of the slow destruction of the American Christian book industry.From scandalous books offered in Christian bookstores, to the recent bankruptcy of Family Christian Stores, the whole affair reeks of mismanagement and greed."

To me it reeks of "you guys have turned your formerly great brand into something that no sane person wants to touch with a bargepole."

Richard F. Minter, American Thinker:  "Did Charles Murray Write the Wrong Book?"

Well, if he'd written Fifty Shades of Grey, he would have made a lot more money.

Richard Alexander, Town Hall:  "Bewildered in recent years by all the vitriolic hatred directed toward the U.S. from foreigners? Turns out it’s not all real. The propaganda machine of the Kremlin during Russia’s communist era, known as Pravda, has reinvented itself and is making a resurgence, this time through “Kremlin Trolls” who litter onine news sites and social media with Vladimir Putin’s agenda. Yesterday, in a huge expose, The New York Times labeled it “… a highly coordinated disinformation campaign"

As distinguished, say, from Fox News, or Town Hall's website itself.

Dennis Prager, Town Hall: 'Does It Do Good?' vs. 'Does It Feel Good?' Left-Right Differences: Part III...A fundamental difference between the left and right concerns how each assesses public policies. The right asks, "Does it do good?" The left asks a different question."

I guess you've got to laugh, huh?  "Does it do good?"  Is that really the question that the right asked before they invaded Iraq?  Before they did away with the regulations that prevented Wall Street from wrecking the economy?  Before they decided that the interests of a few oil billionaires were more important than the survival of the human race?  Before they decided to pretend that racism doesn't exist in the United States any more? Before they decided that the only thing poor people needed was a good kick in the ass?  If that is what "doing good" consists of, I'll stick with feeling good.  Not that I do after reading garbage like this.

And now, the self-serving Republican delusion of the day:

Arthur Shafer, Town Hall:  "I believe that the Republican Party presidential prospectus has not turned into a clown car... consider the array of clowns, losers, and misfits running for (or ruining) the Democratic Party nomination."


Andrew Klavan, PJ Media:  "Why Conservatives Aren’t Funny...Because liberals have no sense of humor."

Huh?  Did I miss something there?

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "If ISIS Attacks US, Obama Will Go Down as WORST PRESIDENT EVER"

Hey, you guys decided that Obama was the WORST PRESIDENT EVER the day after he took office.  So can the crap already.  Bush and Cheney created Isis when they ran Iraq according to Conservative foreign policy nonsense.  And no, we are not about to forget that.

Alan Keyes, Gateway Pundit:  "Cardinals surrender to iniquitous spirit of the time"

Who cares what this is about?  I'm not even from St. Louis.

it would be interesting to make a list of the insulting terms frequently directed at strong women: harpy, controlling, shrill, emasculating, and keep track as each one is deployed against the first female presidential candidate with a likely chance of prevailing.
