I must say, I tried a couple of times the last few weeks to see if I shouldn't be writing another Wingnut Wrapup, but every time I quickly gave up, because what's the point in repeating what a bunch of right wing morons have to say, when our President is saying the same thing every day, and no one seems to care enough to shut him up? But with the escalation of the right wing plan over the weekend, I think that it is important to see how these jackasses are going to try to rationalize away their ever-less-disguised hatred. Ready or not, here we go:
Andrew Anglin, Daily Stormer, memorializing the victim of the white supremacist terror murder this weekend: "She was Fat and a Drain on Society. Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness. A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value.
Due to female privilege, and the fact that they do virtually nothing their entire lives, women live an average of 5 years longer than men. The average female lifespan is 81 years. That means for 49 more years, this fat slob would have been leeching off of men’s work.
Childless women are black hole vortexes of public money and energy.
Had she not died yesterday, hundreds of thousands of dollars would have been spent on propping-up this gross creature who had failed to do her most basic duty – her only real duty, in fact – and reproduce.
Having no children at that age, it can be assumed that she had multiple abortions, and was thus herself a child murderer."
Really, not much anyone could say about that which could make the guy look any worse, so we'll just move on.
Vanguard News Network: "President Trump Says: Racism is Evil...I agree: why did the Jews have to invent racism and genocide?? Why are the Jews still trying to wipe out our White culture? Why do they hate us so much? (The answer is: “because we’re not Jews”).
See, racism is totally something the Jews do. This is the sort of thing that feeds the race haters that showed up in Charlottesville this weekend. It will be interesting to see how far they can run on a diet of such pure hatred. These people should really be exterminated like plague-bearing rats, in my opinion.
Alex Jones, Infowars: "I’ve been to these events, a lot of the KKK guys with their hats off look like they’re from the cast of Seinfeld,” he said Sunday, as old footage of a KKK rally rolled behind him. “Look at them, they’re just Jewish actors. Nothing against Jews in general, but the leftist Jewish want to create this clash, so they go dress up as Nazis...I have footage in Austin — we’re going to find it somewhere here at the office — where it literally looks like cast of Seinfeld or like Howard Stern in a Nazi outfit. They all look like Howard Stern. They almost got like, the little curly hair down, and they’re just up there heil-ing Hitler. You can tell they are totally uncomfortable, they are totally scared, and it’s all just meant to create the clash.”
And of course, from one of the chief Sandy Hook deniers (and a valued source of information for our President,) waving the false flag as hard as he can. I know it is the height of time-wasting to confront what Mr. Jones has to say with facts, but here are a couple of pictures of the fine Americans marching to preserve that statue of General Lee:
Notice anyone there that looks like Howard Stern? No? I didn't think so.
Jay Syrmopoulos, Free Thought Project: "Multiple High-Level U.S. Officials Publicly Warn of Govt Plot to Assassinate Trump"
Based, as usual, on the testimony of a bunch of people you never heard of, and twisting the words of real people mercilessly. For example, Jay cites the following:
"former CIA Director John Brennan, while speaking at the Aspen Security Conference, noted that if the administration attempts to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the orders of the president.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum."
as evidence that the entire government is conspiring against Trump. Just to note: when a traitorous tool of a foreign dictator attempts to destroy the country, it is not an evil aberration, but the responsibility of every government employee to do whatever they can to stop him, and see that he is punished appropriately for his treason.
Jeff Rense, Rense.com: "Globalist McMaster Calls Soros-Promoted False Flag In Charlottesville A Terror Attack"
Catch that? Actually, McMaster called the car attack and murder by a right wing maniac a terror attack; to Jeff Rense, this is an excuse to claim the attack was a false flag operation carried out by (Jewish) leftists, even thought the perpetrator had a years-long record of association with right wing causes and groups. Expect to see a lot more of this in the coming years.
Mike Adams, Natural News: "Why this all ends in civil war: Radical Left-wing fascism and intolerance meets right-wing nationalism and resistance"
See? Peaceful Progressive protesters are fascists, but actual, self-identified Nazis aren't.
Guy Benson, Town Hall: "The Alt-Right does not, and must not, represent American conservatism."
Oh yes it does, buster. People like you spent decades building this monstrosity, and this time around, you are not walking away from it the way you walked away from the damage that Reagan and Bush and Cheney and every other damned Republican in the last forty years worked around the clock to create.
PJ Media: "MSNBC Contributor Says the Neo-Nazis Killed Someone 'on Behalf of President Trump'
And? Got any objection to that? Seems pretty right on to me.
Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media: "Purple Heart Recipient on Afghanistan War: 'You Can't' Fight Suicide Bombers"
How about people who drive their cars into peaceful protesters? How do you fight them? Hey, I've got an idea: let's do it by not electing one of their leaders to be President.
Tyler O'Neal, PJ Media: "In this particular case, the white nationalists were protesting the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee...These people are being told that even this most defensible of all Confederate figures must be condemned in their cultural consciousness. Again, there is no excuse for the way they reacted, but perhaps this is a legitimate complaint.
Indeed, part of the tragedy of the situation is that by identifying as white supremacists in defending this statue, they have played into the narrative that only racists support these statues."
Only one thing wrong with this line of argument, Tyler: It happens to be an obvious fact that only racists support these statues. "The most defensible of all Confederate figures" spent years killing American soldiers in a treasonous war to support one of the great evils of human history. I'm glad that Tyler knows that the rest of them were even worse.
"How can Americans break the cycle of tribalism? By championing the tenets of classical liberalism: that people have equal rights and dignity, that government should treat everyone equally, and that individuals acting freely and in peace can achieve the best good for the whole."
Too bad your people, Tyler; let me repeat here: your people will not admit that people have equal rights and dignity. Run away from that truth and you are a racist yourself, and no better than the violent ugly jerks who go around with Nazi flags.
Jesse Lee Peterson, World Net Daily: "CHARLOTTESVILLE, I TRIED TO WARN YOU...I have warned for more than 27 years that we are in a spiritual battle of good versus evil. White people are under attack – especially white, straight, conservative Christian men of power. The children of the lie hate them because they represent good. They love truth, freedom, responsibility, the values that make America great.
Evil already wiped out black and Hispanic men – separated them from their families and deluded their thinking. Evil, too, has chipped away at whites, the last men standing in the way to stop evil from completely taking over America."
The guy who wrote this is a black man. Some people of every kind will do any despicable thing if you pay them enough.
Earick Ward, American Thinker: "Those who control the narrative control the truth. Following Charlottesville, all must understand the broader context of current events – the conservative movement (not to be confused with media-created Alt-Right or white nationalists) desires the restoration of America's founding principles, as documented in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
There is a counter-movement that seeks America's destruction and the imposition of a new covenant, predicated on the wisdom of man or, more particularly, a select group of men, who seek to manage the affairs of all man. "
The wisdom of man, or a select group of men. You mean like this select group of men?
I'm just glad that Earick realizes which side in the United States today is really on the side of the Founding Fathers. It's just stunning how un-self aware these guys are.
Franklin Graham, Newsmax: "Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd. What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions?"
What about those city council members who voted to remove a statue to a treasonous man who killed thousands of patriotic Americans in order to defend slavery? Yeah, why didn't they balance that act of common decency against the likelihood that an American racist would kill some poor innocent girl to get back at them? In fact, how dare anyone stand up to a pack of degenerate would-be Nazis? After all, if you do, they might kill some more people, and that would be all your fault.
Franklin Graham's father was a viciouslly anti-Semitic scum, but God, he has nothing on his son:
"Really, this boils down to evil in people's hearts," Graham said. "Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He's the enemy of peace and unity...Graham called on the nation to come together and turn to God."
Like, that has ever solved a problem like this, in the whole history of the human race.
Peter Hasson, Daily Caller: "Far-left agitators are calling for an escalation in tactics following this weekend’s violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville."
Monsters. Instead, they should all just go home and stay there until the alt-right guys show up to escort them into camps.
And an oldie but a goodie when things like this happen:
Connor Mighell, The Federalist: "The ‘Alt-Right’ Aren’t On The Right, They’re Just Racists"
Why, of course they have nothing to do with us reasonable haters! We won't run you down in the street, we will just see that you have no job, no home and no medical care, and then just let nature run its course.
Zachary Leeman, Popzettee: "When violent protests broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend, celebrities and artists had the opportunity to call for unity and sanity in a world in which people are digging their heels into extremist beliefs."
Unity with Nazis. Interesting to see how that would play out.
Anyway, that should be plenty to see how far the right wing media have gotten in two days to blot out the obvious meaning of this weekend's events in Charlottesville. They still haven't agreed on quite the narrative, but just give them a few more days, and that guy in the car will turn out to have been a hero.
Oh, and just one more comment: If you think we on the left are going to stand around and let white supremacists and neo-Nazis beat and kill us, just to deny you the opportunity to scream that "both sides do it," you are crazy. Let's be clear about this: every person on earth knows who the good guys are when it comes down to Nazis versus the rest of us, and no amount of smearing and lying on your part can ever change that.
