Default Freedom of religion UNDER ATTACK in the United States

Oh, wait. Not really. Because Islam is not really a religion!!!1!

Quote:
Quote:
You could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion or is it a nationality, way of life or cult, whatever you want to call it.
So says ...

Quote:
... Tennessee’s lieutenant governor, Ron Ramsey ... who hopes to win the Republican nomination for governor in a primary next month with support from Tea Party activists ...
On a related note, from the same article: A Florida church has ...

Quote:
... announced plans to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 with an “International Burn a Koran Day,” ...
Their pastor has written a book titled Islam is of the Devil, and signs saying the same thing are posted on the church's front lawn, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

Paying attention, Mr. Orwell? Good. Here is the name of the church: The Dove World Outreach Center.

...When Webb visits New Orleans for Jazz Fest, he hangs out with the Crescent City’s treasured Neville family, sometimes sitting shotgun in one of Aaron Neville’s famous Corvettes speeding down Claiborne Avenue.

Finding a Republican with these soul credentials isn’t overly shocking—take Lee Atwater, the famous Republican campaign strategist who, in a previous life, was an accomplished blues guitarist (even recording an album with B.B. King)—but it’s still not the first thing people think of when they conjure up the image of a Tea Party leader.
In other news... white people are not literally the color white.

Brilliant. This was my favorite:

Quote:
Quote:
The left continues to feign confusion (it is hard to believe its pundits are really this muddled) as to the reasons why conservatives (and a majority of fellow citizens) oppose the Ground Zero mosque. No, it’s not about “religious freedom” — we’re talking about the location of the mosque on the ash-strewn site of 3,000 dead Americans.
Nice italics! Also, bullshit. The proposed site's a block over and a block up from Ground Zero. I've trod that turf many times, as do thousands of people every day, and they're not marching somberly and crying "Never Forget" but going to work. There's a Cohen's Optical there, and a Starbucks. Shall we smite them for making lattes and eyeglasses on the ash-strewn site of 3,000 dead Americans?

Smiting: one of today's most underrated activities. And for the weight-conscious, it burns calories like you wouldn't believe!

Default "Tea Party Comix"

John Grooms via @ronaldjackson:

Quote:
In case you’ve missed it, a lot of people are madder than a snakes with a migraine about some unbelievably racist comics that have made the rounds in Tea Party World. Called Tea Party Comix, the black and white pages show Pres. Obama, in stereotypical blackface and in various guises, including evil superhero. He’s shown deliberately destroying all that’s good and holy about ‘Mer-ca, while the comic spews the usual litany of Tea Party gripes: death panels, too much spending, liberal judges, et al.

[...]

The creator of the comics has responded to Ethan Persoff, of Comics With Problems, who first alerted the non-Tea Party world about them. The artist, who remains unnamed, said he created the comics out of anger at Obama, but denies that the comics are racist. [...] As we’ve said before, we don’t think the Tea Partiers are inherently racist, but they sure do attract racists, and, in any case, the views expressed in Tea Party Comix, at the very least, show the mindset of a sizeable cross-section of that movement.
From here, where disgustingly many more live (and see also, and see also, and see also):



All together now! "Just a few bad apples ... this doesn't mean all teabaggers are racist ..."

The Denialism Will Continue.

Audio here, if you must.

BTW, apparently the notion that the First Lady of the United States has taken a vacation has attracted hysteria and lies from others besides El Rushbo. A few of them are debunked here.

I don't have to go listen to it, I only had to see how you "quoted" the headline to know that you and the smucks at mediamutters are playing with the words.

Priceless.

No they're there either, evidently. I guess we should be happy the racists are so often so demonstrably ignorant in other ways, as well.

Default Calm down liberals! It's only a game!!!1!

Oh, hey look! Throw baseballs at that black guy. Yeah, the one next to Obama! HAHA I meant next to Osama!!!1!







Or, you know, maybe just shoot your gun at him instead! All in good fun!



And ... this guy voted for him, just like Althouse says she did, so it's All Good! And you know what? You weren't even supposed to think it was the President, so if you did, YOUR THE REEL RASSIST!!!1!

Quote:
Irvin Good Jr., president of Goodtime Amusements, said Wednesday he didn't imean to offend anyone by offering "Alien Attack" at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Big Time fair in Roseto. But the game sparked a complaint.

"I guess we made an error in judgment, and we apologize for that," said Good, who has had the game for about six weeks. "I voted for the man. It wasn't meant to be him. If they took it that way, we apologize."

The game's target is a painting of a black man in a suit who is holding a scroll labeled "Health Bill." He sports a belt buckle fashioned after the presidential seal, antennae and a troll doll on his shoulder.

Default "Dr. Laura Schlessinger's N-word rant"

Or, as Roy might put it: How Come They Can Say It And We Can't? Part Infinity+1:

Quote:
On August 10, Dr. Laura Schlessinger launched into a racially charged rant, during which Schlessinger -- in her own words -- "articulated the 'n' word all the way out -- more than one time." Among other things, Schlessinger also told an African-American caller that she had a "chip on [her] shoulder." Schlessinger has since apologized for her remarks, but audio from the discussion appears to have been excised from the recording of that day's show that appears on Schlessinger's website. Media Matters has obtained full audio of Schlessinger's comments:
Audio and transcript here.

Default Further News of the Left using racism to further an agenda

"You see the problem. It's not that Conason is wrong exactly, but that his level of righteous outrage is so wildly disproportionate to the trifling offenses he is describing. Had we ever seen evidence that he has a sense of humor, we would assume that this column is satire. But we haven't, and it's not."


Hmmm...I guess we can relate to that here.

I don't have time* to post links to the hundred or so stories I've seen in just the past couple of days, but let's have one, to remind those not suffering from complete epistemic closure what life is like when you're not, say, some fat-dumb-and-happy white guy from Minnesota:

... i.e.,

(h/t: Riley Waggaman)

To dismiss this ongoing problem with the standard "b-b-b-but Al Gore has a big house!!!1!" type of "defense" is to be a central part of the problem. Whatfur I have given up hope on, but "look?" You should be ashamed of yourself for patting a clown like this on the back, with your eyes closed just as tightly as you can get them.

==========

[Added] "Old news!!!1!" you claim? Very well. Although I am unaware of any name change for this school, here are some more recent examples of the bigotry from the damp underbasement of America.

==========

* [Added2] Nor do I have much inclination, since on this site, it appears that lately, rebutting wingnut hate with facts (oh, and a mean tone of voice!!!1!) is cause for banishment. So be it. Enjoy your Whatfur-look echo chamber, Bob. No one can say you haven't earned what you've sought.

This information is moot.
All anyone needs to know about the hillbillycolloquialism, is when he speaks of all things right wing, bestows only the highest praise, and defends to the bitter, pointless end.

When it comes to all things left of the extreme right wing view, he attacks every aspect, even when he has no grounds whatsoever, in which case he will resort to bad mouthing it to the bitter pointless end.

He is, as Rush once described himself, a one dimensional character.
