This Week’s WTF is a Two-fer

Too many Deep Thinkers to choose from this week.

Think Progress » Right-Wing Panel Agrees Obama Is The ‘First Muslim American President’ 

An attendee of the panel asked the three speakers if they would consider President Obama a Christian or a Muslim, given his “roots.” While Gaffney gave a now familiar response linking Obama to the Muslim Brotherhood, Federer and Shoebat provided new theories, which elicited praise from the crowd:

GAFFNEY: If Bill Clinton, on the basis of special interest pandering and identity politics, was properly called the first Black American President, on that same basis, Barack Obama should be called the first Muslim American President. […] But there is evidence that a lot of Muslims think he is Muslim. But whether he is or whether he isn’t, the key to me, is is he pursuing that is indistinguishable in important respects from that of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose mission ladies and gentlemen, we know from a trial in Dallas last year, is to quote to destroy Western civilization from within by its own miserable hand. That’s what we need to keep our eye on.

FEDERER: In Islam, if your father is a Muslim, you’re automatically a Muslim. Since Barack’s father, stepfather, and grandfather were all Muslim, the Muslim world views him as Muslim. Mohammad allowed his warriors to say they’re not Muslim to gain advantage and um, but he’s uh, Islam permits you to lie to advance Islam, Saul Alinsky allows you to lie to advance your communist agenda, you can put them together.

SHOEBAT: I came from an American mother, Obama came from an American mother. I came from a Muslim father, Obama came from a Muslim father. […] Did you know that your President knows how to do the call to the prayer in eloquent classical Arabic? […] No one can do this in classical Arabic language unless he grew up and was raised as a Muslim.

Think Progress » Right-wing icon Schlafly: Feminism is ‘the most dangerous, destructive force in our society today.’ 

Schlafly delivered several speeches and led a discussion advocating traditional roles for women as well as warning about the dangers of feminism and blasting single mothers:

I submit to you that the feminist movement is the most dangerous, destructive force in our society today. […] My analysis is that the gays are about 5% of the attack on marriage in this country, and the feminists are about 95%. […] I’m talking about drugs, sex, illegitimacy, drop outs, poor grades, run away, suicide, you name it, every social ill comes out of the fatherless home. [mjh: … every one of which is caused by a feminist?]

This Week’s WTF?!

In a column published under Leonard Pitt’s byline, Glen Garvin enumerates  the bloody history of the Left Wing. Ooh, shudder, deadly liberals. If he gets to conflate the Symbionese Liberation Army with modern liberalism, then it is fair and apt to link the KKK with conservatism.

Yet Garvin fails to mention the armed man at an Obama rally with the poster stating “The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants.” Liberal or Conservative – you guess. (This stalwart left out “and patriots,” as Jefferson originally said. Was that cowardice?) Is it fair to single out this one man. Hell, yes. It only takes one lone loon with a gun. The crowd that screams Obama is the Anti-Christ, Obama is Stalin, Obama is Hitler, Obama is illegal, and the Left *wants* – WANTS, say the goddamn fools – to destroy AmeriCo – that crowd is prodding countless loons to rise up and become the hero of the insurrection. You know, when the loon strikes, these same people will insist cravenly that isn’t what they intended. You lie! peace, mjh

Left’s been out for blood, too – Leonard Pitts Jr. –

Unfortunately, Pelosi is alone in neither her equation of conservative politics with bloodlust nor her willingness to shade the truth to make her case. Lately, the favorite talking point of America’s chattering classes has been that to oppose President Obama’s economic policies is to court presidential assassination.

One Federal Census worker has been murdered. Of course, the Left may have done it to make the Right look bad. Uh-huh.

Bonus WTF?!


Granted, we don’t want any prissy liberal to be offended by love of country,…. Trite, corny unabashed love of country used to be the norm, now it’s just dark sarcastic self-hatred wistfully wishing we would end this marvelous country and move back into the Neanderthal age.

       Watching the Journal run through its one-sided antics is no different than observing the rest of our out-of-stream mainstream media. You make heroes of those who bash this wonderful country and ignore or belittle those who try to uplift it. And all of this allows you to take a slap at the media’s nemesis, talk radio, calling it Hate Radio. Excuse me, but what’s so hateful about it? Frankly, it’s the only place you find the rest of the story and not the biased one-sided propaganda this newspaper and the rest of the media tries to pass off as information. In fact, ‘Hate Radio’ is the only place I hear America talked about in positive terms. — CLYDE J. ARAGON Albuquerque



Is it love of country to say that America is so weak and decadent that it can’t survive two years of a Democratic majority? Do those positive terms on talk radio include “Obama’s America” and “he’s a racist” and “Socialist agenda” and “feminzis,” ad nauseum, ad idiocy? Yeah, talk radio is the last redoubt of the well-informed citizen-patriot. peace, mjh

Another Rightwinger Wants to Dissolve the Union

Obama and the Democrat Party have returned us full circle to the tyrannical days of Taxation Without Representation. And if I might point out to our politicians and the rest of their communist colleagues, it was Taxation Without Representation which started this country and it’s going to be Taxation Without Representation which ends it.

Seriously, Clyde? Were you not represented by Tricky Dick Nixon, the crook, and Spiro Agnew, the godfather of thuggery? Were you not represented by Ronnie Raygun, the god of the GOP and bumpersticker politics? Were you not represented by Gingrinch and the Contract on America? Were you not represented by BushCo? In all those years, I paid taxes. In most of those years, if I complained, your ilk told me to shut up or move to another country. Now, after one election, you’re ready to dissolve the union? Where’s your respect for America? peace, mjh

I miss Dimdahl

Right now, the biggest jackass in New Mexico is Jim Scarethemtino. And, he may well be worse than John Dimdahl was. (At least, Dimdahl liked skiing and legalizing marijuana.) It has been awful watching Scarethemtino’s transformation – he used to be an OK guy and a half-decent writer.

Don’t worry, though. Democrats/liberals/socialists/gays/non-whites (immigrants)/women are working on classifying “wrong thinking” (conservatism and love of gawd and country) as a mental illness. Help is on the way, Jim – you’re covered.

Dems’ Plan Is Hidden Tax
By Jim Scarantino

This is the new “culture of coverage.” Instead of promoting personal responsibility and self-reliance, government will indoctrinate its citizens in the merits of hitching a free ride on other’s backs.
       Organized calisthenics will involve extending an arm forward from the shoulder, turning one hand to the sky, and holding that pose until free stuff graces the palm. All citizens must participate. Them that’s got, give it up. Everyone else, find your place in line.


Revived Anti-Gun Arguments
        All the tired old anti-gun rhetoric is floating to the surface again ("Obama Must Shoot Down the Gun Lobby" column by E.J. Dionne Jr.).
        How about a new perspective? How about a calm, objective reassessment of the First Amendment? After all, First Amendment freedoms have (damaged the) fabric of our democracy (more) than guns ever could.
        For example, so many journalists have been discovered fabricating news that it is entirely reasonable to require that all journalists be officially licensed. Licenses could then be denied or revoked — en masse if necessary — in order to ensure the integrity of the media. …
        And who could be opposed to the registration of computers? … And clearly, a system of background checks needs to be in place for anyone desiring to gain access to the Internet. Cyber-stalking, child pornography, malicious blogging — all could be reduced if some reasonable bureaucratic controls were introduced.
        Nobody had a "need" for more than one television set. Period.
        Let’s take a rational, common-sense approach to regulating the out-of-control beast we euphemize as "free speech." Surely the founding fathers had no inkling of the destructive power of the modern media.
        All honest, decent people would have to agree that the gain in emotional security would be well worth giving up a few archaic rights. After all, the Constitution is a "living" document, isn’t it?

ABQJOURNAL OPINION/LETTERS: Substitute First Amendment in Revived Anti-Gun Arguments

Satire is hard. Christensen is a frequent contributor to Letters to the Editor. This is one of his longer works. I would read his blog.

However, I believe he just suggested that there is no difference between speaking and shooting. I’m glad we don’t hang out together. After all, saying what I think is no different than taking a shot at him. And, as a gunnut, he’s got a god-given right to shoot in self-defense. Don’t mention my name if you tell him about this. peace, mjh

This Week’s WTF?!

The signs that were distributed said “Obama Bin Lyin’ IMPEACH NOW”:


The “tea party” protests nationwide are being coordinated by the conservative public relations firm Freedom Works, which is run by former Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX). The tea parties are also being supported by Newt Gingrich, through his organization American Solutions For Winning the Future. Members of Congress, such as Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH), have appeared at previous rallies. In addition, Fox News’ Glenn Beck promotes the protests, and has launched a website publicizing the events.
