Quote# 77987

[Explaining his campaign against Jewish Texas House Speaker Joe Straus, which included circulating emails with anti-Semitic messages]

“When I got involved in politics, I told people I wanted to put Christian conservatives in leadership positions,” he told me, explaining that he only supports Christian conservative candidates in Republican primary races.

“I want to make sure that a person I’m supporting is going to have my values. It’s not anything about Jews and whether I think their religion is right or Muslims and whether I think their religion is right. … I got into politics to put Christian conservatives into office. They’re the people that do the best jobs over all.”

Cook insisted he is not prejudiced against Jews:

“They’re some of my best friends,” he said of Jews, naming two friends of his. “I’m not bigoted at all; I’m not racist.” [...]

“My favorite person that’s ever been on this earth is a Jew,” he said. “How can they possibly think that if Jesus Christ is a Jew, and he’s my favorite person that’s ever been on this earth?”

I got into politics to put Christian conservatives into office. They’re the people that do the best jobs over all.

LOLWUT?

Were you comatose between 2001 and 2009?

My favorite person that’s ever been on this earth is a Jew. How can they possibly think that if Jesus Christ is a Jew, and he’s my favorite person that’s ever been on this earth?

Your favorite person ever, is someone that never existed? Please seek help and/or medication immediately.

"“My favorite person that’s ever been on this earth is a Jew,” he said. “How can they possibly think that if Jesus Christ is a Jew, and he’s my favorite person that’s ever been on this earth?”"

And if Jesus Christ was a Jew, then his "values" were Jewish, which means that YOUR "values" are Jewish, nimrod.

So ... you're admitting that you would 't vote for Jesus because you don't share his values.

Thanks for accidentally telling the truth.

If Jesus ran for public office, would you vote for him?

Fine way to contradict yourself, dear.

“They’re some of my best friends,”

Oy. *facepalm*

You are quite amusing. The amount of Doublethink inside your head is already astounding, but your ability to keep a straight face while lying like a finance banker is impressive.

Christians do the best jobs.

I'm not prejudiced.

You don't see how those two things don't...ya know what, nevermind. Idiot.

Some of my best friends are Jewish, but that won't keep me from laughing when they burn in Hell!

So what you're saying is that, if Jesus ran for public office, you wouldn't vote for him.

You're saying that you would base your vote for a candidate on their religious beliefs, regardless of how qualified they were for the job.

Nice.

Wow. Can you actually hear yourself speak, or do the words just pour from your mouth in an uncontrollable fashion?

Let's put these two together, shall we?

"I’m not bigoted at all; I got into politics to put Christian conservatives into office. They’re the people that do the best jobs over all."

Unbelievable.

Let's make a test. How would this guy react if somebody, in Israel or Lebanon did the same to him because he's not Jew, Muslim or Catholic?. I think you pretty much got the image.

Well killing does tend to make people hungry, and what way to celebrate the death of a person than with tasty tasty bagels!

12/15/2010 9:09:58 PM

what???

Something seems odd about this. Most anti-semites claim that jesus wasn't a Jew. But he could just be trying to take attention off of himself.

Loving a dead Jew and two that aren't trying to get into political office under you doesn't count.

Just like only loving Jews that are over in Israel helping you get your rapture doesn't count. (That's a bit pre-emptive, but it'll come out of this schmuck eventually.)

John Cook is exactly the kind of retrogressive retard I want as far from politics as it is humanly possible to be.
