Keep your eyes on the skies! Hopefully a thunderstorm will come along and you'll drown.

Wasn't this said years ago. I think he has taken a look at you looneys and thought "thanks but no thanks"

McCarthy was never 'allowed' and communist ist still considered a dirty word in this country. Christians are perfectly fine. Conservatives are perfectly fine. In fact, being an intolerant bigot makes you get labeled as an intolerant bigot.
Which you probably are!
Still means you can gibber on with your hate speeches.

Freedom of speech is just the freedom to say what you want, not the freedom to say it without anyone then calling you a jerk because of it.

The funny thing is...had what he did been done some 20 years later, the investigation would have turned up the actual results he was looking for.
But unfortunately, he didn't do it 20 years earlier; as a result, the US collapsed and was overrun by the Soviet Union ... oh, wait - it wasn't.

Also, McCarthy was not "ahead of his time". There were Soviet agents in the US during his time, but he didn't find any of them, instead ruining the lives of a bunch of law-abiding citizens for no reason.

So, baby Jesus is going to whisk you, up, up and away any moment now, and yet you still feel the need to bleat a few whinging lies before you go.
I know how crazy this might sound, but that strikes me as the behaviour of someone who might not be 100% confident that they're going to be raptured. Hmmmm...
11/17/2012 9:35:50 AM
The whole communism thing is getting old.
You can be a Christian and a conservative; what riles most people is you not minding your own business and trying to get your bigotry passed into law.
Nevertheless, no one is taking away your right to say bigoted things
But since you don't you don't like it here, please whoosh on up to Heaven now.

Right, the Christian conservatives are the ones who don't have a voice in today's society. We never know what they're on about... Truly their freedom of speech is squashed because they can't harass and shit on any minority group they choose. Or at least people are more apt to be like, "wait a minute, you guys are dicks..."
And of course RR would wax poetic about freaking McCarthy.
11/17/2012 10:11:12 AM
"...it's a topic that I've given more than a casual glance to."
- Translation: I read the conservapedia entry on McCarthy.
"In a way, he was a man ahead of his time."
- Quite right, blatant, unrepentant, self-serving bullies are no longer an anomaly among conservatives.
"Of course this being a free country, unless you're a conservative, a Christian or worst of all, both in which case you're also an intolerant biggot, it doesn't matter whether or not you're a communist."
- Still trying desperately to play the victim card are you? The last election should tell you how well your efforts are working.
"I'm looking forward from seceding from the union..."
- An event as likely as your rapture. Better learn to live with disappointment.

I'm British, so I don't have experience living in America, but I had the strange idea that America was very conservative and predominantly Christian. Mad eh?
"Of course this being a free country, unless you're a conservative, a Christian or worst of all, both in which case you're also an intolerant biggot, it doesn't matter whether or not you're a communist. Even they have rights of freedom of speech here."
Are you saying that you disapprove of freedom of speech? Or free countries? It certainly sounds like it. But then again, I'm British, so I'm sure I'm missing some nuances...
Though am I the only one that really likes the look of the spelling "biggot" rather than "bigot"? Maybe we could use it for those people who think that speaking out against bigotry is in itself bigotry.

"In a way, he was a man ahead of his time."
Yes, he was so determined to stop anti-American stuff that he worked as hard as he could to violate the First Amendment... which is exactly what Fundies keep on trying to do today.
"I'm looking forward from seceding from the union of the states"
Go then... I'm willing to bet that the state you are living in is one of the Conservative PARASITICAL states that are mooching off the hard-working Liberal states.
11/17/2012 10:42:02 AM
"True citizenship". That suggests that you're not really an American, that your first loyalty isn't to America. That makes you an unpatriotic traitor, just like all them commies in the fifties.
11/17/2012 11:06:11 AM
Do these people ever reread what they type?

The Cold War ended twenty years ago.

The only wickedness is yours, Christian. Your kind want to run around killing innocent people because of the way an election went, so you are in no position to talk about morals, persecution, or ANYTHING for that matter.
11/17/2012 11:42:44 AM
I want everyone to be free.... to do what they're told!
11/17/2012 11:54:53 AM
For the millionth time:
Freedom of speech is judicial term, not a cultural term. If you have the right to call somebody a sinner I have the right to call you a bigot for that.

"The funny thing is...had what he did been done some 20 years later, the investigation would have turned up the actual results he was looking for."
So where would he have found these communists in the early 1970s? Folks in government like Gordon Liddy and Howard Hunt?
"I'm looking forward from seceding from the union of the states and the wickedness the United States of America"
It looks like the only person who would benefit from investigation by the HUAC is a certain traitor called Verisimilitude.

Yes, all eternity with party-poopers and mouth-breathers. Sounds wonderful.

"it doesn't matter whether or not you're a communist. Even they have rights of freedom of speech here. "
Commies have freedom of speech? The Horror!
11/17/2012 2:32:42 PM
Instead of trying to get a bunch of people in one place to secede, why not just emigrate yourself to a country more in line with where you want to live? If you can find one - good luck with that, by the way.
11/17/2012 3:37:09 PM
Conservative Christians are not bigots as a whole. Just the ones who whine and bitch the most are loudest and tend to be. Like those on Rapture Ready and Free Republic, etc
11/17/2012 5:07:04 PM
Our government was overrun with Communists in the Seventies? Put down the brown acid.
