The Obama Execution Must Be Worse Than Drawing And Quartering, says high-ranking Judeo-Christian Light

Anyone else immediately picture Mel Gibson in full kit, swinging a claymore and yelling "You'll never take oor freedom!"(?)

William Wallace did come to a drawn and quartered end, and was an actual Patriot, to boot.

But sadly, today, it was just one more highly hypocritical Florida citizen demanding President Obama's death and dismemberment. Sad, sad local loon-watch coverage had preliminary details, and the good folks at Raw Story had video.

 

Watchdog group Imagine 2050 reported early on the local yokel's video rant.

On July 17, Center for Immigration Studies Senior Policy Analyst Stephen Steinlight spoke to The Highlands Tea Party in Sebring, Florida. There, he expressed a desire not only to impeach President Obama but also to have him publicly lynched.

In discussing House Speaker John Boehner’s plans to sue the President, Steinlight lamented that “there’s no court that’s going to stop Obama from doing anything.” He then added, “We all know, if there ever was a president that deserved to be impeached, it’s this guy. Alright? And I wouldn’t stop. I would think being hung, drawn, and quartered is probably too good for him.”

qE2
So the order is, just to refresh:

  • Impeachment.
  • Lynching.
  • Hanging.
  • Drawing and quartering.
  • Presumably releasing the remains to Putin and Karl Rove?

Teabagger Hate for Obama - and modernity in general - grows as fast as Fvx Nation will fertilize, and they're not slowing down on the moo-doo over 'thar any day soon.

Pat Robertson: Busily Sowing A Fear of Witchcraft Like It Is 1692

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

ideasfrompornPat
Huge thanks to the folks at Raw Story for getting this offensive smut of Pat Robertson's reported and out on the airwaves.

As a direct female to female descendent of Rebecca Nurse, hung in Salem, Massachusetts a rather long time ago, this ticks me off. Royally. This is the best Pat can come up with? Is he just ripping off Alan Ball, catching a little True Blood cachet because he heard there were some Right Wingers in it?

{Sidebar: If you're a fan, you so know that there ARE Wingers in True Blood and they are SO well depicted it's as electrifying as Sookie in a Mood ... the Tea Party undercurrents are handled with deftness, and if you have been watching Ball forever, you know why his first HBO Series 'Six Feet Under' is still important as a wild, California-West Coast lens or socio-political record of the Bush culture and years.}

Back to the candidate for reigning King of the Regressive Right Asshattery, Pat Robertson. This ... blind, lame and deeply crippled philosophy, or transparently rampant superstition, is the sort of intellect of a man they build universities 'to' in places like Virginia? The husband pursued the collegial Arts at Lynchburg for a spell, bless his New Jersey heart, the tales are frightening and completely explain his time as a Dead Head.

Witchcraft? Seriously?!?

Without further ado. Pat Robertson.

What a way to celebrate Bastille Day ... bring out the Senior Religionist Fringe!

In a nutshell, Pat Robertson answered a 700 Club Dear Abby letter from a mother claiming her son was in demon-induced agony by telling her to look over to Ancestry.com or the family Bible and find the wicked witch of an ancestress she was meant to identify and fixate blame on.

Rebecca Nurse was said to have gone to her death with the kind of dignity my generation might expect from Dame Judy Dench or the intrepid Ethel Kennedy.

In the meantime, Pat Robertson is busy sowing fear, creating one more 'Other' to avoid, casting seeds of hate and demonizing those he imagines are out to get him. How much does Pat Robertson remind you of a paranoid conspiracy-theorizing guy with fully-stocked and staffed bunkers in at least two countries?

Somewhat more eccentric underneath than either J. Edgar Hoover at home or a randy Dick Morris ... The Full Vitter Truthiness Challenged Territories?

Excerpted from one of the great folks over at Raw Story, David Edwards, these eminently Tweetable, Bizarro Robertson 700 Club and All Purpose Christian talking points that really rang my alarm bell.

Instead of recommending that the mother seek medical attention, Robertson said that the boy could be “oppressed or possessed by demons.”

Sounds smart.
really-snl

You see, the mother had mentioned extreme belly pain in a teenage boy, distress akin to a gut punch - a Big Mac might have been the first culprit looked to. Or an aversion to organized religion at ungodly hours. But, no, Robertson had the cockamamie 'truth' to be touted in his absolutely un-researched reading of the situation, aka a shot at the most fashionable Hater target du Jour for Wingers, the occult or 'somebody in witchcraft'. Double points if the witch is a member of the LGBTQ community or a skin color other than 'pale'.

“You need to get somebody with you who understands the spiritual dimension and doing spiritual warfare,” he continued. “If I were you, I would look back in your family. What in your family — do you have anybody involved in the occult, somebody in witchcraft or tarot cards or psychic things?”

“Has there something been there that you don’t know about. Some grandparent, great grandparent or something. Look into the family tree, and then get some people in there and cast this stuff out. But that does not sound like normal.”

So Robertson is advocating for exorcism, now? Has he been watching too much modern melodrama on the silver screen, got a wee streaming habit, there Pat? Global warming, No Way ... but looking back to cast out demons and witches is your spiritual and gastroenterological diagnosis?

Better reenroll in one of your Born Again colleges. Silly season doesn't even cover it.

Which leaves progressives faced with the farsical and fanciful or simply surreal set of circumstances to dissect. And an unendingly enormous appreciation of humor.

Marc Lamont Hill on the Non-Existence of Post-Racism

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

who are these people
Fantastic group out in social media called "We survived Bush, You'll survive Obama". Brings a big grin every time I see them post a doozie, because it's something you'd image Socrates saying to an angst-ridden group of students at his feet … bemoaning the perfidy of leadership.

The folks that brought you Creationism also think we are in a Post Racial/Racist/Racism world. Not that the GOP wasn't full on taking advantage of race in politics already, the Tea Party and Citizens United and other SCROTUS Regressive decisions just upped their game in terms of legal camouflage.

Marc Lamont Hill is well aware that politics has become blood sport in 21st century America, not that it was ever a Cotillion. One look at John-John Kennedy Junior staunchly saluting the crowd as his Mama had told him he must, and we Dems recall precisely how high the stakes are for helping Everyman in the U.S.A.

screwedyouall

As Laffy so often points our here at the Carnival, the Regressive, ridiculous Right takes every chance, and 'creates' the ones that don't arrive honestly, to Blame the Black Guy. If you think that is liberal whining, allow us to disabuse you of that misunderstanding.

CNN had a panel on Newsroom that went at it directly: Is the President Always To Blame? The incredible Marc Lamont Hill was on hand to debate the role of race and the Tea Party with Ben Ferguson, as he has done in the past with Bill O'Reilly (vid below) and Hill's passion and reason led to a look at a remarkable address he just gave at NCORE.

I'd choose any five minutes you have to jump in, enjoy. It's a lot of wisdom from a youngish man, and he opened with sadness from Maya Angelou's recent passing. If you have to bookmark it for time constraints, come on back.

Lamont famously took on Ann Coulter about who is allowed to use the N Word on CNN, earlier this season.

And just because it is so fun to watch O'Reilly get hammered, Here's Marc Lamont Hill explaining Tea Party racism to BillO.

Right, Tony Perkins … Christians Will Be Persecuted by The Gays

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Reality

Just when you think professional bigot Tony Perkins couldn't utter anything more Born Again Wackadoo, he out-whacks himself.

Now we are supposed to believe that the LGBT community will ultimately destroy not only 'the family' … but that they penultimately have their sights set on penning Christians up in their God-hating hidden death camps.

What about The Rapture?!?

Right Wing Watch posted the audio below. In a spring-off from the infamous gay wedding cake case, Family Research Council fanatic Tony Perkins went from zero to Hate The Gay Crazee so quickly in the discussion that I can hardly wait for Maddow to have at the schmuck. Then he drove the rig right into the Holocaust ditch.

Yes he did. And not to be outdone by Tony Perkins, delusional and defeated Regressive attorney Nicole Martin saw his Death Camps, then raised him a few poor-persecuted-endangered-Christian "Witch Hunt" scenarios. Judge for yourself. Excerpted commentary on the other side.

Perkins reacted to the discrimination case by offering a comparison to the Holocaust: “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

“I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch hunt,” Martin said.

I'm confused. So are The Gays the new Blacks, the new Jews or the new Muslim/Socialistik/Liberals in the Evangelical Hate Sights? It's a pretty special spot to be elevated to, the group they see as 'Other' enough to cast as their final foe.

If I were gay myself I'd not know whether to be flattered that they thought my 'people' capable of something that clever and Biblical, or to just be even more burned than usual that the Christian Reich Wing has reserved the truly finest distilled hate for us.

Seriously?!

Dr. Marguerite 'Maya' Johnson Angelou's Epic Courage WAS #YesAllWomen

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare
Maya Angelou

Image: BestLife Quotes

Written by guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:
Weaponry as penile enhancement is a timeless male tradition. Cave men absolutely took breaks from brutalizing Og-Ella to take crude yardsticks to their clubs, spears and their poles.

Is it any wonder that 55% of all women have been sexually assaulted or raped by now? "Men’s greatest fear is that women will laugh at them, while women’s greatest fear is that men will kill them", said Margaret Atwood, in one #YesAllWomen tweet.

The epic Melissa Harris-Perry took Elliot Rodger's entitled rampage on women to a critical place in the #YesAllWomen wave on Saturday. She firmly put systemic misogyny On Notice. Catch the illuminating conversation for yourself at MSNBC, first block of the show.

She gets it.

The Twitter hashtag #YesAllWomen was tagged by 61,500 tweets per hour at its height. It was one of the most beautifully yet startlingly overwhelming experiences that I can recall as a card-carrying, first gen. feminist - and an utterly astonishing wave of strength, shared courage and love that is SO desperately needed right now.

Women are at war in far more than one theatre. The GOP Regressives have had their crosshairs trained on dames since we got the damned Vote. Hillary Reactionary Rage - 2008 round - escalated the Neanderthals and soon gave 'Rosemary style' birth to the bastard Lipton Brigade.

The medieval mentality of 'legitimate or God Given rape' and trans-vaginal wands is sweeping from old white guys to young entitled white bucks, apparently. The response of #YesAllWomen, was about as Everything as it gets on The Tweeter. It was empowering, devastating, unifying and a balm we sorely needed after the UCSB attack.

When the poet of America's soul, Maya Angelou, walked on in its ebb and flow … it was a mystical moment as simply profound as she was.

A woman who muted herself, silenced that extraordinary voice, for five years of post-rape trauma at the unthinkable age of 8. Melissa brought this story full circle as she described her personal history with Maya, who mentored her in college and beyond, and even hosted her wedding reception. Their last taped interview together is revelatory. Enjoy at footer.

We must have the courage to be courageous. Especially when poised to witness a fond dream of Dr. Angelou's: to see a woman take that seat in the Oval Office that our first black president has filled with honor and integrity ... and nary a lick of misogyny will have to be dusted off his chair.

Do Cliven Bundy, Bill Kristol and Donald Sterling Speak For Chief Justice Roberts?

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

KKKCrossRallyw259h204

Racism is a thing of the past. Just look at the Chief Justice Roberts's Court and his beliefs that racism no longer exists in the United States. Blacks and other minorities no longer need protections to their right to vote nor affirmative action.

How trippy is this guy? What bubble does he live in? Let's just look at the recent racist news.

The Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice John Roberts strikes down affirmative action in Michigan, claiming it would be racist to take race into consideration where inequality is the question.

Cliven Bundy, becomes an instant hero to conservatives. They gush over the man who's a scofflaw for refusing to pay court-mandated grazing fees for his cattle. The "Right" couldn't get enough of him until he took again to the pulpit to lecture America about the "lazy Negro" and how the Black race would be better off as slaves. (His words, not mine).

Then when this draws outrage, some of the right wingnuts and spokespeople tone down their love of the crusty old cowboy outlaw. Not all, but some. And I'll even credit Sean Hannity from distancing himself, not totally, but partially, over Bundy's race remarks.

Notice I said some right wingnuts. That's because there's always the reliable Bill Kristol.

Within hours of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling's racist comments to his Black/Hispanic girlfriend (whom he's openly seeing despite his being married), the ever 'balanced' Kristol stuck up for Sterling, urging caution. Remember, like the Chief Justice, Kristol isn't sure that racism really does still exist.

The Raw Story:

Conservative pundit Bill Kristol on Sunday urged people to judge NBA team owner Don Sterling by his “deeds,” and not to “go hysterical over two or three sentences” where he tells his girlfriend to stay away from black men.

Okay, Bill, let's not get hysterical over a few insensitive if not outright racist sentences. Judge the man by his deeds you say. How's this set of deeds float your boat?

The Los Angeles Times:

The racist comments purportedly made by Donald Sterling in the audio recording that surfaced Saturday via TMZ.com are the latest in a years-long string of racially-charged incidents linked to the real estate mogul.

In 2009, Sterling agreed to a $2.765-million settlement in a case that alleged discrimination against African-Americans, Latinos and others at apartment buildings he owned in Los Angeles County.

Are these the deeds you were asking us to use as judgment?

If  this man is anything short of a racist you might need to look in the mirror and take an assessment of yourself. You're a spokesman for ultra right conservatives. Are you speaking for them now? If so, you're just like Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling and evidently Justice Roberts in having your head in the sand or up your ass. You're not seeing what the rest of the world knows is the truth. We have very little racial tolerance in the world, and the US is no exception. It would be much better for you and all of us if you'd use your platform to ease and ultimately someday erase racial inequality and hatred. Not fuel the fires with your ignorance.
