Tom DeLay: “I think we got off the track when we allowed our government to become a secular government,” DeLay explained. “When we stopped realizing that God created this nation, that he wrote the Constitution, that it’s based on biblical principles.”
God wrote the Constitution. And DeLay was one of the leaders of the Republican party at one point, and was only kicked out for corruption, not for being a deranged lunatic.
Ron Paul, Town Hall: "Fascism: A Bipartisan Affliction"
Both sides do it. Republican fascism consisting in fostering hatred, racism and violence in the nation, then exploiting the results for political gain, while Democratic fascism consists, apparently, of not wanting rich people to own every scrap of wealth in the country. Same thing really.
Todd, Starnes, Town Hall: "Chick-fil-A did WHAT on Sunday?"
David Limbaugh, Town Hall: "No, President Obama, Americans Don't Need to Examine Themselves"
They are already perfect. And if you deny that, you are a commie traitor.
And now the conspiracy theory to rule them all:
I had to actually put up a screen capture of this one, or you'd never believe it was real. Can you imagine how stupid a person would have to be to believe this? And yet hundreds of commenters seem to have swallowed it hook line and sinker. Well, the website that featured this also had the following:
"Body Of Homeless Man Found In Restaurant Was Confirmed To Be Bob Marley"
"Queen Elizabeth Promises To ‘Take Back America’ If Trump Elected!"
"HORRIBLE! Children Wearing Sombreros Giving the Middle Finger to Trump! "
Okay, then. I actually suspect that the body of the homeless man was actually Queen Elizabeth, and Bob Marley has spent the last 40 years impersonating her in England. That's why they had to get rid of the Corgis- they were the only ones who could tell the difference.
Wayne Allan Root, Town Hall: "How Donald Trump Can Take Down Both Hillary...and Obama"
E-mails!!!!! They sent each other e-mails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Off with their heads:
"Did Obama ever send Hillary an email? If so, didn't he know it was going to a private server? Did he ever text or talk to Hillary over her nonsecure private cell phone?"
If so, off to prison with them. Because that's what Republicans want, and this all they've got to try to get them there.
Streiff, Red State: "NY Daily News Reporter Gersh Kuntzman Lies About The AR-15"
He said it's really loud, and Streiff says it isn't. Considering that the Republican candidate for President is averaging about 50 major lies per speech, I think Streiff should find something more important to obsess about than how loud an AR-15 is.
Susan Wright, Red State: "SHAMEFUL: No Call of Condolence to Florida Governor Rick Scott From President Obama"
That criminal son of a bitch Rick Scott, who refuses to even admit that gays were targeted in this attack? See, he's the one who really needs our condolences. The 49 dead people? Not so much. Why not attack Obama for not making a call of condolence to Pat Robertson too?
Streiff, Red State: "No, Media, Donald Trump Destroying Email Is Not the Same As Hillary Clinton Doing It"
Streiff, Red State: "Are the Saudis Actually Funding 20% Of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign?"
No. Of course, the Bin Laden family were funders of George W. Bush's early businesses, but that,s all right. Boy, this Streiff guy has really been on a tear today.
Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media: "Sessions: Trump Was 'Frustrated and Said Something He Shouldn't Have Said' About Judge"
Bullshit. He said just what he wanted to say, and it is a good thing he did, because it's one more little piece of evidence of who he really is.
Joe Kovacs, World Net Daily: "Obama 'defending terrorists' in tirade on Trump"
Right. He's 'defending terrorists.' Drop dead, asshole. Really, do remarks like this justify any more dignified an answer? Do we need to pretend that they are honest comments, rather than vomiting forth of right wing hatred?
And the joke of the day:
James Lewis, American Thinker: "The media still don't get that the Republican nominee is looking more and more presidential."
In what universe?
Christopher Chantrill, American Thinker: "Orlando: Why it Means War"
Because right wingers really want an excuse to kill lots of brown people. And Christopher makes it clear that liberals better goddamn shut their mouths about it, if they know what's good for them, or they might be on the receiving end too.
Jeffrey T. Brown, American Thinker: "Islamist or Progressive? It's getting hard to tell the Difference"
Right. Islamists believe they have the right to violently force their religion on people and so do Progressives. Oh wait- that would be Conservatives. And Islamists hate gays, and so do Progressives. Oh wait again- that would be Conservatives too. And Islamists believe in torturing your enemies, and so do Progressives. Oh, wait, that would be Conservatives also. Seeing a sort of pattern emerge here?
Sierra Rayne, American Thinker: "Corrected national polling data shows Trump in the lead"
Corrected polling data. Here we go again. This is so they can spend years screaming that Hillary stole the election when she wins. I mean, it worked for Romney, right?
Thomas Lifson, American Thinker: "Trump again plays by his own rulebook, revokes WaPo press credentials"
You know what, guy? Omar Mateen played by his own rules too. Sometimes it's better to stick with the rules that have worked for two hundred years.
And now, perhaps the most idiotic reworking of a great statement ever heard:
Charlotte Cushman, American Thinker: "First they came for Wall Street, and I did not speak out because I don’t own any stock."
The poor, oppressed minority, stock brokers. They are right on the point of being rounded up and sent to death camps. Believe me, there was more of this, but you don't want to read it.
And now, some really heart-felt advice from the right:
Barbwire: "STOP USING THE ORLANDO TRAGEDY TO PROMOTE POLITICAL AGENDAS!"
Will you be surprised to learn that the word "Trump" was never mentioned in this article? No, it was just an attack on those miserable people who wanted to talk about gun laws. Keeping innocent people from being killed, you see, is a "political agenda." Selling your soul to gun manufacturers out of a perfect mixture of greed and cowardice is American as all get out.
Chris Mills, Barbwire: "TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT OBAMA AND ORLANDO ATTACK"
Yeah, Obama actually is working with Muslim terrorists to destroy the United States:
"The Caliphate is real, and the Democratic Party is either too stupid to know it, or they are perpetuating its rise.
I don’t think they’re stupid…"
No, and neither are you. You are just a lying traitor.
And, ready for a new high in open insanity:
Paul Hair, Barbwire: "THE U.S. SHOULD CONQUER MEXICO AND OTHER REFUGEE PRODUCING NATIONS...First, the U.S. should reach out to the leaders of refugee producing nations and give them an ultimatum to resign and relinquish control of their nations so they can become American colonies...However, if their leaders refuse the offer, the U.S. should forcibly conquer their nations."
Well, there it is. What they are really after: the one world government they always scream about- just fine if they are in charge. And let's remember how well they did trying to work this out in one country, Iraq. Anyway, it's the obvious answer:
"So the next time someone says the U.S. has a moral obligation to take in an infinite amount of legal and illegal refugees, pitch him the idea I just mentioned. He’ll reject it in horror. And when that happens you can decisively tell him, “Now I know what you really support. You support the Alien Conquest of America.”
The alien conquest of America. Yup, that's what Democrats are all about.
And some more well-meant advice:
Robert Oscar Lopez: "Time for LGBT Leaders to Apologize, Resign, and Be Replaced"
This is because these miserable leaders have failed to devote all of their attention to attacking Muslims, which is the only issue that gay leaders have any right to talk about.
"They have been chasing after easy targets like ex-gays, orthodox Christians, "bullies," family values proponents, and Republicans for decades. The underlying premise of their movement has been that the greatest dangers faced by gays stem from "hate" and "stigma" propagated by these supposedly intolerant "bigots" housed in conservative quarters."
The answer? Apparently to let right wing Christians pick gay leaders.
And another dive into Conservative history:
Bruce Walker, American Thinker: "The same familiar social toxins that thrived in Weimar Germany – sexual promiscuity described as less casual and more vicious, rampant abortion, nature-worship, cultural deconstruction – left the German people disarmed when facing the menace of Nazism (and, for that matter, Marxism). Well educated and well bred Germans, believing in nothing, fell prey to the "something" of Nazism.
How were Nazis stopped? Revulsion against Nazi anti-Semitic policies came almost instantly from churches and Christian organizations in America, Britain, and Canada"
Yes, it was abortion that caused the Nazis, and the churches that stopped Nazism. Bet you never knew that. Bet you thought it was the armed military might of many countries, most of them led by left leaning leaders, chief among them, whether you like it or not, Joseph Stalin, whose country did the heavy lifting of defeating Germany.
And a little more from this jackass:
"Another interesting but lost fact is how many in the Christian West were looking at Nazi Germany and calling it the "New Islam."
Bruce, naturally, fails to cite a single time that ever happened, so I spent a little time with Google seeing if I could find anyone who ever said that. Well, how long did you expect me to spend, really, but I found nothing. Not one single reference to Christians calling Nazism the "New Islam." But I bet we will be hearing about this pseudo-fact for years now.
Leon H. Wolf, Red State: "Hugh Hewitt Wants Donald Trump to Grow Hooves and a Tail"
Who's to say that he doesn't already have them? All the pictures I see of him are from the waist up.
Sally Zelikovsky, American Thinker: "Evolution of a Trump Supporter...Conservatives and a significant part of the general voting public have tired of the polished, perfectly groomed candidate."
They're tired. So this time they will go along with a lying, violent bully. That should be a change for the better.
Matt Vespa, Town Hall: "CBS News: What Exactly Was The Point Of That AR-15 Segment?"
Well, since Matt doesn't seem to understand this, let me try to explain it. The people at CBS were upset that 50 people were killed by a lunatic with a weapon that neither he nor any civilian should be allowed to own. Hard to understand when you don't give a damn about those dead people, because they were gay.
Christine Rousselle, Town Hall "Oh My: Hillary Clinton Has Turned Up The Sass On Twitter"
The sass. As opposed to the mature, straight talking we get from Trump. What can you say?
Streiff, Red State: "McCain Is Right About Orlando"
That would be McCain saying that Obama is directly responsible for the Orlando shooting. Mr. Streiff, you are a sick, disgusting excuse for a human.
Ian Hanchett, Breitbart: "…COMPARING ISLAMIC TERROR TO OKLAHOMA CITY ‘A FALSE EQUIVALENCY,’ CHRISTIAN GROUPS AREN’T TRYING TO GET NUCLEAR WEAPONS"
No. "Christian" groups are, however, trying to take over a government that has 4,000 of them.
Awr Hawkins, Breitbart: "Fox News Should Focus on Keeping Terrorists from Guns, Not the Other Way Around"
Enough already. More soon.
