Quote# 87061

They're bullies. And we know that we people stand up to the bully on the playground - the bully on the playground intimidates, that's what he does, intimidates people into silence, into fear, into avoiding the bully. And oftentimes the bully is the paper tiger and when the righteous individual who is being bullied defends his or herself and punches the bully in the mouth, guess what, the bully more times than not has a glass jaw, falls down and then everyone on the playground says "whoa, the bully was a weakling after all."

That's the secularist left. The secularist left are bullies. They try to bully and intimidate and push religious intolerance and religious bigotry on everyone else.

"That's the secularist left. The secularist left are bullies. They try to bully and intimidate and push religious intolerance and religious bigotry on everyone else."

Where as the Religious Right simply push generic intolerance and bigotry on everyone else.

Unless you're gay. They have very specific intolerance and bigotry for that.

The only place where you find a bully with a glass jaw is in after school specials. Analogy failure.

As for the rest of it... Actually I have nothing clever to say about the rest of it. So I'm just going to go and vomit or something.

The human capacity to assume everyone else is up to the exact same nasty shit you are, while failing utterly to see it on your side, never ceases to amaze.

Come to think of it, it wouldn't be that bad if these people were just intimidated into shutting up.

"when the righteous individual who is being bullied defends his or herself and punches the bully in the mouth, guess what,"

The bully gets mad and kicks the shit out of you.

That's funny since that first paragraph is a fantastic description of every Right Wing organization ever.

Considering how many tears the religious right spill when their victims fight back, this Barber character is a textbook case of their projection.

The secularist left are bullies.

Yeah, those secular liberals are really a pain. All that violence, all that hate.

4/24/2012 12:09:28 PM


Technically, the metaphor isn't really correct, anyway--it'd be better for someone to tell an adult about the bully, in this case the government. If the secularist left is too icky, just let the government know.

Waaah. You're bigots. You won't let me make your kids pray in school or stick my religion's symbols up in your parks.

Why would the secularist left try to push religious bigotry? Makes no sense. What they would try and push is secularism.

They try to bully and intimidate and push religious intolerance and religious bigotry on everyone else.

You've summed up fundamentalist Christians quite nicely.

So... wait... you're saying the christian right just got hit in its glass jaw and you are pissed off about that? I'm confused.

4/24/2012 1:47:07 PM

Is it opposite day already?

{They're bullies.}

I know, they are bullies. Demanding that the wall of separation of church and state be removed, insisting that anyone who doesn't tie into the narrow Christian view be demonized, deceiving others into thinking freedom of religion doesn't apply to anyone not Christian, and editing constitutions to make sure gays can't get legal benefits and atheists can't hold public office, it's just what they do. It's time we stood up to the religious righ-- oh, I see you have some kind of differing view in mind...

4/24/2012 2:20:21 PM


oh my various gods!

that mirror is so fucking shiny it makes the Hubble space telescope look downright dull.

what he doesnt tell you, is that the bully immediately will go and tell the nearest authority figure that he was hit, and that whoever hit him is the playground bully. and then he deludes himself into believing it.

YOU people, the christian fundamentalists, who walk over peoples rights, show up on my fucking door to preach, call ME intolerant, and tell me i am amoral, immoral, or any variety of hate speech, are the bullies. you've been bullying for so long, you forgot you were the bully. now that all the small kids are standing up to you and your big, strong, and most of all stupid, gang, you think YOU are being bullied because everyone else refuses to live in submissive fear any more. i have one thing and one thing only to say to you.

Go Fuck Yourself.

4/24/2012 2:36:03 PM


Aww, the left isn't tolerating you being an asshole anymore? What bullies.

4/24/2012 5:40:43 PM


Put a sock in it, Matt, or I'll shove you down on the playground and take your lunch money.

Oh it's true. You totally caught us. In fact, I go door to door, making people disbelieve. Sometimes, I just get violent and do a drive-by disbelief.

I go to school playgrounds as well. I steal Bibles, stop kids from praying, and I take milk money...lots of milk money.

I make people hate religion too. I fucking "make" them because that's totally possible. Some old fucker tried to defend himself with his faith, but he missed when he tried to punch me and hit a nearby car window instead.

Not particularly self-aware, is he?

4/24/2012 7:58:18 PM

SpukiKitty, if he were any less self-aware I think he would be some kind of algae.

Honestly, how does someone blithely delude themselves SO DAMN HARD!? Oh, wait, rhetorical question. It's because they isolate themselves in little fact-free bubbles. Watching the same ol' Fox. Readin' the same ol' WND. Listening to the same ol' Limbaugh. In Republicanland up is brown and blimps are bad and west is cabbage. I don't even bother trying to understand it anymore.
