WHAT THE HELL DID THEY PUT IN THE KOOL-AID THIS WEEK?
There is always more than enough liberal looniness from which to choose on a regular basis, but this week’s offerings struck the Rat as extra Crazy Town. From Van Jones admitting that blacks vote for Obama simply because he’s black – to atheists encouraging Christians to trade in their Bibles for pornography, this week’s stuff is off the hook. Enjoy.
At least Van Jones has the intestinal fortitude to admit it. We all know it. Now, Van Jones – of all people – has come out and said it – for all to hear – in public: Blacks vote for Barack Obama simply because he’s black. Duh.
“President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.” There, Van – you said it; don’t you feel better, now?
Give the dude credit; at least he had the cojones to say it. Now, if Sharpton, Jackson and Farrakhan would only do the same. Uh huh.
No word on whether Jones’s admission caused another thrill to run up the leg of Chris Matthews. One can only hope.
Is it racist to vote for – or against – a candidate based solely on skin color? Of course it is – equally so.
Obama instructs journalists on how to report his positions. Apparently believing that the press is working way too hard to present “fair and balanced” news, O found a teachable moment this week, and gave the media a few words of instructional “encouragement” on how to report (his position) on the budget debate:
“This bears on your reporting. “I think that there is oftentimes the impulse to suggest that if the two parties are disagreeing, then they’re equally at fault and the truth lies somewhere in the middle. And an equivalence is presented which I think reinforces peoples’ cynicism about Washington in general. This is not one of those situations where there’s an equivalency.”
“As all of you are doing your reporting, I think it’s important to remember that the positions that I am taking now on the budget and a host of other issues. if we had been having this discussion 20 years ago or even 15 years ago … would’ve been considered squarely centrist positions.”
Wouldn’t it just be easier to nationalize CBSNBCABCMSNBCCNN and get it over with, O? The sock puppets would rather work for you anyway.
Atheists encourage Christians to trade in their Bibles for pornography. In an obvious nod to the Gideons, atheists on the campus of the University of Texas have come up with a unique twist: handing out porn to Christians. Kyle Bush, president of Atheist Agenda, claims that the organization’s purpose is to “spark conversation,” while spreading “freethinking” sentiment.
“The primary purpose is to get people to come talk to us so we can get our message out. We want to spread atheism and bring it more to the spotlight. We offer another alternative to people who might not fit in anywhere else.”
Earth to Kyle: So, asking Christians to trade their Bibles for pornography is the best idea you morons could come up with to “get your message out”? What exactly is your message, Kyle?
You did accomplish the “spotlight” thing, though. As is usually the result of similar ridiculous stunts staged by atheists across the country, you succeeded in making your group look like a bunch of pathetic fools.
Yes, you UT Jesus freaks – all you have to do is trade in your Bibles and the student group, Atheist Agenda will hook you up with the pornographic magazine(s) of your choice. (Slightly “used,” of course.)
The name of the campaign? “Smut for Smut.” How “atheist” sounding. Sounds like Atheist Agenda believes pornography and the Bible are comparable when it comes to X-rated material. I wonder if anyone ever used a Bible to – oh, never mind; sometimes atheists are just downright idiotic. This is one of those times.
Obama says Ryan budget would make weather forecasts less accurate. As if the weatherman isn’t frustrating enough, O says that if Paul Ryan’s budget were ever to be adopted, things would get even worse. Damn – combine an even less predictable weatherman with global warming and who knows what might happen? Here’s Dr. Doom:
“We wouldn’t have the capacity to enforce the laws that protect the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the food that we eat. Cuts to the FAA would likely result in more flight cancellations, delays and the complete elimination of air traffic control services in parts of the country.
Over time, our weather forecasts would become less accurate because we wouldn’t be able to afford to launch new satellites and that means governors and mayors would have to wait longer to order evacuations in the event of a hurricane. That’s just a partial sampling of the consequences of this budget.”
Sounds like a combination of the silly movie, The Day After Tomorrow and the next Democratic National Convention. The O-man is such a jackass.
Oregon Professor says “sick” climate skeptics are just like racists. From our “You knew it was just a matter of time” department, comes this priceless piece of work: Oregon University professor Kari Norgaard – who recently compared man-made global-warming skeptics to racists. Why didn’t Al Gore think of that?
Yes, folks, the sociology and environmental studies professor believes that those of us (Rat included) who dismiss Al Gore’s religion are victims of a “sickness” – arguing that “cultural resistance” to the acceptance that human beings are responsible for climate change “must be recognized and treated” as “abberant sociological behavior.”
Resolving skepticism over climate change, she said, is “a challenge equitable to overcoming ‘racism or slavery in the south.”
Norgaard attended the annual four-day “Planet Under Pressure” conference in London last week, where she hung out with fellow environmentalist wackos.
Yale University professor Karen Seto told MSNBC: “We certainly don’t want them (humans) strolling about the entire countryside. We want them to save land for nature by living closely together.” She does realize she’s one of “them,” right?
This is where I normally insert an acerbic comment. I got nothin’. Damn.
Wind turbine saves Reno $4. As is the case with man-made global warming, the economic viability of wind power is no longer in doubt – thanks to the miraculous results achieved by the city of Reno, Nevada. Reno installed seven wind turbines in 2010 – and the incredible savings for the city have been off the charts.
It gets even better: Reno’s seven windmills have saved the city in excess of $2,785 since they were installed in 2010. The wind turbines were funded as part of A $2.1 million federal energy grant awarded to the city as part of O’s “stimulus plan.” Solyndra should be so proud.
As an aside, wasn’t the be-all, end-all “stimulus” money supposed to create jobs and jump start the economy vs. funding President Green Jeans’ s pet (mostly failed) energy projects?
Regime to sue Sheriff Joe for enforcing the law. Remember the old saying, “If you mess with the bull (crap), you get the horns”? That’s exactly what’s about to happen to our good friend, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona.
The Regime said this week it was preparing to sue Sheriff Joe for “violating civil rights laws by improperly targeting Latinos” in his bid to crack down on illegal immigrants. Uh -whom else should he be targeting?
Translation: O was already ticked off with Sheriff Joe for enforcing immigration laws, but now that our favorite sheriff has gone public with his investigation as to whether or not the O-man is indeed a U.S. citizen, it’s go-time for O.
The Regime’s Justice Department and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office have been in settlement talks for months over allegations that Joe’s officers regularly made unlawful stops and arrests of Latinos, used excessive force against them and failed to adequately protect the Hispanic community. Talks broke down this week over the DOJ’s insistence that an independent monitor be appointed to keep Sheriff Joe in line.
Additional translation: Joe’s deputies continue to catch illegal aliens and they continue to arrest them. O looks at this as a perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: Pander to the Hispanic community while punishing Sheriff Joe for having the cojones to question the O-man’s legitimacy. Such things are not tolerated on Planet Obama.
Palestinians honor ex-White House correspondent Helen Thomas. What higher honor could be bestowed upon a member of the Obama Media Group than to be honored by the Palestinian National Authority?
Helen Thomas, who was forced to resign in 2010 after saying that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” has fittingly been recognized by the Palestinians for her staunch stance against the Zionists.
The top Palestinian envoy to the U.S. recently hosted Thomas at his Washington residence and honored her for her unwavering commitment to anti-semitism. No word on whether O attended the ceremony.
As to where she believes the Jews should relocate after they get the hell out of
Israel Palestine, Thomas said at the time: “Poland, Germany, America and everywhere else.” She makes an excellent point:
Poland and Germany would be perfect for the Jews; they’d be much easier to round up that way. Again.
NBC “deeply regrets” editing “error'” that made George Zimmerman sound like a racist. Following what must have been an exhaustive investigation, NBC decided to apologize this week for attempting to make George Zimmerman sound like a racist by editing his 911 call following the death of Trayvon Martin:
“During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.”
Translation: “We can’t believe we got caught. We will take all necessary steps to avoid getting caught in the future.”
“Today” originally ran this NBC-edited audio of Zimmerman’s 911 call to a police dispatcher:
“This guy looks like he’s up to no good; he looks black.”
A transcript of the complete 911 call shows that Zimmerman actually said: “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.”
The 911 operator responded: “Okay, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?”
“He looks black,” Zimmerman answered. Oops.
Imagine that – catching the Obama Media Group attempting to manipulate the news to fit its agenda. But what the hell – their puppet-master does it all the time; monkey see, monkey do.
Keith Olbermann fired – again. Poor Keith; things just haven’t worked out the last few years for the ever-bitter Bill O’Reilly wannabe. It didn’t take him nearly as long to wear out his welcome at Current TV as was the case with his former employer, MSNBC. (How bad do you have to suck to be fired by a network that employs Al Sharpton?)
“Current TV was founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it.”
Not to worry, fans of Al Gore’s network, (which he actually did invent) the disgraced global warming alarmist extraordinaire has hired whoremonger Eliot Spitzer to take Olbermann’s place. Just keeps getting better, huh?
Remaining true to (lack of) character, Olbermann announced this week that he is suing Current TV for breach of contract. Obviously, jackass Keith doesn’t believe he’s yet milked Al’s network dry. Hey – it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy than Gore.
Labor Secretary decorates Department with images of her protest march with Sharpton and Jackson. Barack Obama’s Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, is not only proud of her participation in a recent protest march in Alabama with the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – she has authorized photos from the march to be turned into posters – and displayed throughout the Department of Labor.
One image shows Solis – as an emissary of the Obama Regime – protesting against Alabama’s new law combating illegal immigration. The Labor Secretary has her arms locked with Sharpton, with Jackson is a few feet to her left. The poster also includes a signed message from Solis to federal government employees – who are traditionally expected to remain apolitical in the performance of their duties.
“Whether we take to the streets or simply do our work with integrity and commitment here at the U.S. Department of Labor,” the poster reads, above Solis’ signature, “We are all marching toward the same goals: safer workplaces, fair pay, dignity on the job, secure retirement and opportunities to make a better life. I believe in the power of collective action.”
Labor Department officials failed to respond to requests for comment as to whether Solis is encouraging federal workers to use their positions to promote the Regime’s political agenda. I think we have our answer, America.
Ohio school will allow gay student to wear “Jesus is not a homophobe” t-shirt. A 16-year-old gay student who sued his public high school for prohibiting him from wearing a t-shirt “urging tolerance of gays” has been given permission by the school to wear the shirt – “Jesus is not a homophobe” – for at least one day.
Maverick Couch’s lawsuit against Waynesville High School and the Wayne Local School District charged that they were violating his First Amendment right of freedom of expression. Thank God Mavs didn’t ask to wear a “Jesus Lives” t-shirt.
As sick as this is, it does get me thinking about a whole new marketing opportunity – a line of “Jesus is not a …” clothing. Yep, the gift ideas are endless:
For Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louie Farrakhan: “Jesus is not a race-baiter.”
For the pro-choice crowd: “Jesus is not a baby killer.”
For Barack Obama: “Jesus is not an egotistical, self-absorbed elitist who is incapable of accepting personal responsibility for anything – choosing instead to blame everyone and everything else when he screws up – which is often.” (The font on this t-shirt would necessarily be smaller than that on other variations.)
For the Obama Kool-Aid drinkers, a bit of a twist: “Barack Obama is not Jesus.”
That’s all, folks – for this week’s edition of Rat Droppings from Planet Looney Tunes. We’ll be back next week with a full slate of equally ridiculous goings-on; the loons never fail to provide ample material.
Sometimes, you just gotta shake your head. Then – you write a post.
