Wingnut Wrapup

It's hard to compete with our brain damaged President when it comes to the wingnut lunacy, but here goes:

Todd Starnes, Town Hall:  "Professor Calls White People "Inhuman"

Well, mostly the rich ones.

Larry Elder, Town Hall:  "Minimum Wage Laws are Destroying Jobs -- Just as Predicted"

Larry lies, just as predicted.  A collection of anecdotes, deliberately misinterpreted statistics and out and out falsehoods- pretty standard fare from the right.  But Larry isn't done:

"The now-defunct organization called the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now came to California years ago to gather signatures on a petition for a ballot measure to increase minimum wage."

ACORN!  All that's left is for Larry to tie it all in to Benghazi and the death of Vince Foster, and maybe claim that Hitler was a liberal, and he will have hit the Conservative jackpot.

Ann Coulter, Town Hall:  "The Left Has One More Argument: Kill Them!"

Well, Ann, if you are talking about yourself, yeah, I'd go along with that suggestion.

Lauretta Brown, Town Hall:  "Gallup: Hillary Clinton ‘Unique’ in Having No Post-Election Gain in Favorability Ratings"

Ha ha.  Boy, I guess people hate her, huh?  Lauretta forgot to mention that Hillary was been voted the most admired woman in the world last year, for the twentieth time.  Not much room to move up, with a record like that.

Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "Jared Kushner Arrives in Jerusalem For Peace Talks"

Too bad he didn't take Colusa Brown, California's State Dog, who would have had a significantly better chance of negotiating peace than Jared does.

Okay, okay, any excuse to use a photo of a Corgi.  So, sue me.

Freedomlover1776, Red State:  "Elizabeth Warren Puts Her Ignorance Of Financial Markets On Display"

Who you going to trust, a Harvard professor regarded as one of the foremost experts on commercial law in the world, or some unknown paid liar with a stupid name?

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media:  "Sanders: Christians Are Disqualified From Public Office"

Well, the way things have gone, I'd say it's worth a try.  Anyway, of course this is a total lie. Bernie never said any such thing.  What Bernie really said was that some "Christian" Trump appointee was disqualified from holding high public office because he had a record of making vicious, belligerent attacks on Muslims.  But hey, close enough for wingnuts, right?

Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media:  "Joy Villa to Anti-Trump Celebrities: ‘Try Being in His Shoes Before You Talk Bad About Him’

Deal!  I'll take over his job for five months or so, and let's see who does a better job, me or the bully.

Christina Laila, Gateway Pundit:  "Trump Wanted to ‘Rattle’ Comey – No ‘Tapes’ Exist"

Didn't work.  Christina is so stupid that here is her analysis of this claim:

"This bluffing technique worked beautifully because Comey sang like a canary at his recent public testimony."

Yeah, he called the President a liar four times in a public Senate hearing, something that has never been seen in the whole history of the country.  Yup, Comey sang like a canary, all right.  I won't bother repeating them here, but you couldn't believe the commenters on this article, who universally are thrilled at the amazing Jedi mind  trick that Trump pulled on Comey with this strategy.

Jerry Newcombe, Renew America:  "Hollywood loses out by often ignoring the family and faith audience"

Well, judging from the fact that every movie that these right wing "Christians" make is a gigantic bomb, I suspect that we aren't losing out very big.

Rev. Austin Miles, Renew America:  "Muslim bastards ENJOY torturing animals !!"

Unlike, oh, say, Donald Trump's sons, who seem to just enjoy killing them:

Lloyd Marcus, Renew America:  "Cosby and leftists' war on non-victim-minded blacks"

"Non-victim-minded."  Apparently the hip new right wing term for "rapist."  Well, I have to admit that, as far as I have ever heard, very few rapists are "victim-minded."  So I guess Lloyd has a point there.  Let's hope he stumbles soon and runs that point through his brain, or whatever passes for Lloyd's brain.  It'll take a lucky stab, however, to hit anything so small.

Daniel John Sobieski, American Thinker:  "Robert Mueller Adopts Stalinist Tactics"

God, the guy hasn't even done anything in public yet, and already he's Stalin.  These guys must really be afraid of what he is going to uncover.

Monica Showalter, American Thinker:  "Trump poised to soar in the polls, IBD's market chartheads say"

Well, he sure can't fall much more.

And here's the right's answer to the official announcement that Vladimir Putin did in fact personally direct the Russian attacks on our electoral system, which put the traitor Trump in the White House:

See, just deny that there is a shred of evidence that it ever happened.  Which is combined in Trump's case with simultaneously blaming it on Obama.  Magical thinking at its finest!

Jay Caruso, Red State:  "The Left Is Good At Protesting But Not Much Else"

Well, except for running a State with a balanced budget, the sixth biggest economy in the world, growing funding for education, infrastructure and other public needs, a business climate that is attracting companies from all over the world, and some great mountains, deserts and beaches.  All while the Conservative paradises in the south, or such places as Kansas, are drug-ridden hell holes that cannot take care of their own people without constantly sucking money out of California and other liberal States.  Conservatives start depressions; liberals end them.  Conservatives start wars; liberals end them.  Conservatives create economies that are brutal to everyone but the people at the very top; liberals at least try to see that other people get some of the benefits of good economic times.  That's the real truth, so right wing paid liars like Jay there have to work overtime to keep the suckers who support the Republican party from realizing what is going on in the world.

And now, how about one of the biggest asshole lies of the day, huh?

Liz Shield, PJ Media:  "Democratic Mayors Only Want Terrorists, Criminals to Conceal and Carry"

Right.  This is because Democratic mayors are against "reciprocal concealed carry," which would let the most piggish right wing State in the country decide for all of us who has the right to carry a concealed weapon.  Because the criminals would never take advantage of that.

Rev. Mark H. Creech, Renew America:  "A very private moment: has it happened to you?"

Not on your life, jerk.  Liberals don't do things like that.  Like what?  Oh, who the hell knows.

Chuck Baldwin, Renew America:  "America closing in on civil and global war...It is no hyperbole to say that the days leading up to the War for Southern Independence were........"

God, do I really have to go any farther?  "The War for Southern Independence"...sheesh, what an asshole.  Well, just a little more:

"On any given day, any major American city could – and often does – become a war zone."

Really?  I hadn't noticed that.  I live in a major American city and I  haven't ever noticed tanks in the streets or bombarding airplanes, or waves of infantry gunmen.  Maybe I slept through it all.

Michael Bastach, Daily Caller:  "It Only Took Minutes For Activists To Shout 'Climate Denier' During Rick Perry's Speech"

And?  What's your point?

Christine Rousselle, Town Hall:  "NASA: Uh, No, We're Not Running A Child Slave Colony On Mars"

In a strange lapse, Christine fails to mention that this story came from Alex Jones, President Trump's favorite source of national security information.  Just an accident, I guess.

Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall:  "Guidestar Labeled Dozens of Conservative Organizations as 'Hate Groups'

Did they leave any out?  Because all Conservative organizations are hate groups, as we all know perfectly well.

Lauretta Brown, Town Hall:  "Nikki Haley Responds to Question of U.S. ‘Diminished Global Standing’: U.N. Knows the U.S. Is ‘Leading Again'

Leading again.  Leading the world to extinction, maybe.

Well, at least she led this post to extinction.  'Bye.
