Quote# 80410

I almost wish that there would be, like, a simultaneous telecast, and all Americans would be forced–forced at gunpoint no less–to listen to every David Barton message, and I think our country would be better for it.

May as well just go straight there and institute a daily 5-minute hate

It seems there is quite a strong possibility that America might get a fundie YEC president in 2012, thanks to all the birthers, teabaggers, Ann Coulter fans and general anti-Obama people out there!

Two words, Mike Fuckabee: Budd Dwyer.

Now do the planet a favour and follow his example.

"It seems there is quite a strong possibility that America might get a fundie YEC president in 2012, thanks to all the birthers, teabaggers, Ann Coulter fans and general anti-Obama people out there!"

But with so many potenial GOP candidates (Failin, Fuckabee, Gingrich et al) as with the division in beliefs, re. the thousands of denominations (and thus 'I am considerably more fundier than thou!' arguments that arise), the support base would be spread more thinly (would someone who licks Gingrich's arse be persuaded to vote for Failin or Fuckabee? PROTIP: Would a Southern Baptist be a Presbyterian?).

That, coupled with the insanity of said candidates would make swing-voters in the Mid-West vote otherwise. How do you think Obama got in, in the first place?*

But with the Repubicans' only remotely credible candidate Milt Romney (and even then, that's split with Tim Pawlenty, in terms of noimination), the political instability they're still experiencing (certainly post-2009 election), all it'd take is for a second loss - with Failin as the presidential candidate this time - and she'd be the wedge that'd create such a split in the Repubican party, that it'd result in a political schism between the moderates and the hardcore Religious Right types. Therefore the Democrats would rule for ever and ever RAmen (even in the Midterms; would moderate Republicans want to support the GOP Teabagger types?!)

*- In the BBC's coverage of the previous US elections, I remember on BBC Radio 5 they had one of their reporters outside a polling station in Colorado. She had a megaphone, and asked the question of the people in the (very) long queue: 'Who here is voting for McCain/Palin?' There was a massive negative response. I'll let you guess what happened when she next asked the question 'Who here is voting for Obama/Biden?'

Sure, we could do that. And then we could compare his bullshit with what the Founders actually said. Then people will see what a shameless liar Barton is.

Lying for Jesus is still lying.

Or it would be a good way to actually hate him. Don't complain afterwards if feelings happened not to be sincere.

And this is why all sane people hate Republicans.

I cannot fathom how a man who aspires to the presidency could have so little regard for the rights of the people that he would so much as joke about having them forced at gunpoint to listen to anything much less a highly partisan and ideological message.

to listen to every David Barton message, and I think our country would be better for it.

I'm sorry, but how the fuck would anyone be "better off" from being forced at gunpoint to do anything? Much less than have to listen to David fucking Barton, a man who have been caught time and time again cherry picking snippets of qoutes from the founding fathers and stringing them together as is they were an actual quote, and that's when he's not just fabricating them whole cloth.

Is David Barton some alias for John Galt? I get the same statement, more or less, from Objectavists all the time.

And on the other hand, right-wing fundies are putting up signs like this:



And aren't the right-wing fundies wetting themselves over stories like at the Columbine school shootings, that Eric Harris allegedly put a gun on the head of a pious girl, asked her "Do you believe in God?", and pulled the trigger when she said "Yes"? Aren't they misusing these stories to smear Atheism, denouncing Atheism as something deeply immoral?

It's deeply immoral to threat a christian at gunpoint, but for the fundies, it's okay to threat other people at gunpoint. As long as their own ideology is enforced.

What a hypocritical bunch full of double-standards.
