The Madness Goes Mainstream

Readers of Wingnut Wrapup may remember the following item from a few days ago:

Drew Zahn, World Net Daily:  "A mysterious, pale green figure seen in televised news coverage of the Egyptian riots has prompted some viewers to ask, "Could this be the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse?"


Yes, over at World Net Daily, they were actually speculating about the possibility that a character from the Book of Revelations had decided to take a trot through the demonstrations in Egypt.  Well, that was World Net Daily- nothing that surprising, right?  Well, take a look at this:


Yes, indeed, one of our nation's major "news" outlets, which reaches millions of people daily, is now giving credence to this lunatic religious fantasy.  How in the name of God are the American people supposed to react reasonably to what is going on around them, when they are force-fed this kind of malicious nonsense?

The right in this country has totally taken leave of its senses, and is wallowing in an orgy of hatred, greed and willful delusion which is going to destroy our society if we don't find a way to stop it.  And it is getting more deranged every day.

Best not ask how "in the name of God"...
That might encourage them.

And wouldn't it be 'camelrider of the Apocalypse', given where it is?

Doesn't have quite the same lunatic ring though, does it?

It's just that dude that dances at Dodger games. Weren't the Egyptians playing "Don't Stop Believing" during the demonstrations?

I for one am looking forward to having a look at the seven headed beast myself.

I also look forward to athiests saying something goofy so I can make fun of them in return.

Mastercynic,

When the Egyptians were playing "Don't Stop Believing," they weren't thinking of the Dodgers. They gave up believing in the Dodgers a long time ago. They're not that dumb.
