Wingnut Wrapup

Today's Wingnut Wrapup respectfully dedicated to the thirty percent of Republicans who support bombing Agrabah, the home city of Aladdin in the Disney movie.  Let's lob a few cruise missiles at Mordor next.

Actually, the wingnuts have been so piggish lately that I haven't found all that much to laugh at.  That's why the unusually long gap between Wingnut Wrapups.  Trust me- you didn't miss much.

Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall:  "New, More Accurately Worded Poll Shows Majority Wants to Defund Planned Parenthood"

The old, inaccurate question?  "“Do you think federal funding for Planned Parenthood should be eliminated – yes or no?”  A very large majority of Americans, despite the malicious lie campaigns we have seen the last few months, still answered no to that question.  So, the need to add some mumbo-jumbo about transferring the money to "community operated clinics," something we know will never happen, just to make the question more "accurate."  A perfect illustration of why Conservative polls were so on target during the last Presidential election.

John Hawkins, Town Hall:  "Why I Joined the NRA Yesterday"

Because you are a flaming asshole who would really like an excuse to kill some people.  That's my guess.

Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall:   "Fiorina Not Happy With Cuomo’s Suggestion Her Pro-life Rhetoric Influenced Planned Parenthood Shooter"

Of course she is not happy about it.  It reveals what a hate filled little liar she is.  Well, too bad, Carly.  You are just going to have to be unhappy with it, because it is true.

Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall:  "Groups Pressure Hillary to Distance Herself From General Who Called For Internment of American Muslims"

Those damned liberals, trying to force common decency down our throats again.  They just never stop with that.

Moe Lane, Red State:  "Democrats find new and exciting way to keep people from watching their debates!"

Well, I'm not sure if it is a new way, but apparently actually discussing the issues, instead of inviting a piggish reality TV star into their debate to pander to haters, is a recipe to cut down on viewership.  I wish I could disagree, Moe.  You are right there.  You'd get an even bigger audience if you invited Charlie Manson to participate- think about it.  Everybody in the country would tune in. It could work for you.

Bridget Johnson, PJ Media:  "DNC Eagerly Trying to Tie Republicans to Trump"

Whereas, in reality, the Republican party has absolutely nothing to do with Trump.  Nothing, I tell you!  Yes, he is by far the frontrunner to be the Republican nominee for President, and he has been for months, supported by far more rank and file Republicans than any other candidate. And every other Republican contender has sworn to support Trump if he wins the nomination.   But that does not mean that he has anything to do with the Republican party.  No way!  Look over there- Hillary, Benghazi, e-mails!!!!

Ted Kruiser, PJ Media:  "'Washington Post': Republicans are Totally Racist, We've Got Studies!"

And they do have studies to prove it, but so what?  Who cares about studies?  We all know that the truth is determined by whoever shouts the loudest.

Bridget Johnson, PJ Media:  "3 House Committees Join Forces to Investigate Whitewashed ISIS Intelligence"

Oh boy!  Does that mean they have finally given up on Benghazi?

Hans Von Spakovsky, PJ Media:  "Scourging Scalia: The Left’s Latest Hissy Fit"

Because only a bunch of liberal pansies could care if a Supreme Court justice is a race hating Fascist.  I mean, don't haters have a right to representation on the Supreme Court too?

 Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "Tantaros: More Americans Support Donald Trump than Polls Are Showing"

And how do we know that?  Because someone on Fox News told us so.  Well, that settles that.

Sylvia Thompson, Renew America:  "Why must Donald Trump give details of his plans?"

Yeah, why?  isn't enough that he is promising to solve every problem on earth?  Sylvia continues:

"I am not so much interested in the details of how candidates will do what they say they will do."

No, of course not.  You are only interested in which candidate will spread right wing hatred the longest and loudest.

Clarice Feldman, American Thinker:  "Obama is not who we are"

And a lucky thing, too, Clarice, because you are a hate-filled, lying racist.  Clarice continues:

"he becomes ever more desperate to stifle mounting criticism."

Interesting.  Well, whatever.

Jerry Newcombe, Town Hall:  "Is Cruz Like Goldwater or Reagan?"

Oh, I don't know, how about Reinhard Heydrich?


Because it didn't pander enough to really rich people.  No, really.  This guy is infuriated that the spending bill did not do away with a ruling that makes huge companies like McDonalds responsible in some minor way for the behavior of their franchisees.  The $700 billion dollar extortion that had to be payed to get any bill through at all just wasn't enough for them- they want more freedom to screw people too, because what good is it being rich if you can't make other people poor at the same time?

Andrew McCarthy, National Review Online:  "How Dinesh D’Souza Became a Victim of Obama’s Lawless Administration"

This article explains how Dinesh D'Souza got caught committing a felony, was sent to jail, and it was all Obama's fault.  But then, isn't it always Obama's fault?

And now, the most spectacularly stupid attack on Obama lately:

William Levinson, American Thinker:  "The occupant of the Oval Office gained his position through the commission of a felony."

And what is that dastardly felony?  He held a raffle among small contributors and selected some of them to meet with him personally.  Note that outright selling access to the President for $100,000 or so, a common practice among Republicans, is just fine for people like William, or committing treason by negotiating with our Iranian enemies before the election, as Reagan did, or just using corrupt Supreme Court Justices to rig the election- well these are just fine.  But it is, of course, the whole purpose of nonsense like this article to obscure the utterly illegal nature of the Reagan and Bush Presidencies.

Jeannie DeAngeles, American Thinker:  "Is it Time to 'Refresh the Tree of Liberty?'

I.e. is it time for rednecks to start up the shooting?  Well, Jeannie certainly thinks so:

"This isn’t about recognizing the absurdity of being asked to believe that our mortal enemies will become our friends if we treat them as if we’re walking on shards of glass."

Something which Obama himself tried for six years, and look where it got us.

"Instead, it’s about the American people finally wresting from the clutches of oppression that which was purchased for us with the blood of patriots who recognized tyranny and then refreshed the tree of liberty accordingly."

So, get out your guns, guys, it's time to shoot us some brown people.

Carl Jackson, World Net Daily:  "CAN CARLY GET HER GROOVE BACK?"

Carl, hate to break this to you, but Carly never lost her groove.  It's just a really ugly and hateful groove.

Renew America:  "Ryan dupes House conservatives on budget deal"

Because, apparently, they are not fluent enough in English to have read the bill before they voted for it.  Hey, I'll buy that.

Well, see you soon.

Does not the article by Jeannie DeAngelis amount to seditious conspiracy, as I understand the US definition?
Oh I know it’s not prosecutable - seditious conspiracy is never successfully levelled at the radical Right anyway – but that’s what it sounds like.

One of the affirming commenters has a blog called “War on America”

I know this is all old hack to you GE, but to quote that:
“we haven't had a representative government since 1860, when big business got Lincoln into office and then declared war on the States. Free markets in the United States died at the same time, we just didn't realize it until 1913 when the Bankster cartel formally took over the Federal monopoly on power and money. We've had a fascist dictatorship since then and your vote has meant exactly squat. The only way to return to a Jeffersonian Representative Republic is the way our Founders did it in 1775”

So… ‘while people had slaves things were okay, and we need to turn back the clock 240 years’

Does that mean they have finally given up on Benghazi?

I'm sure they'll be back onto that as soon as they work out which part of Agrabah Benghazi is located in.

Why must Donald Trump give details of his plans?

It's an understandable concern. Trump wouldn't know a "detail" if it flew up to him and built a nest in his hair. But she's kind of right that the main thing is just what he says he'll do. On that score, we've already heard enough to know that his candidacy is the most serious outbreak of authentic fascism in American history. That's as much as we need to know.

I guess we are all wondering how low this downward spiral is going to take us. I've been trying to say something meaningful about this, but I find that comparisons to Hitler or Mussolini really run sort of dry, the more you know about what happened in Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. I've got some ideas, which I will try to get down on paper this week. Christmas time- just when we should be thinking about stuff like that, I guess. Talk about a war on Christmas- if anything could kill our Christmas spirit, I guess it's the endless hatred spewed by these people.
