Only Pat Robertson -- and his Flock -- Would Denigrate Robin Williams

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

This is so far past Ick that new adjectives need forming and disseminating.

But then again, Pat Robertson's middle name is Ick.

Robertson brings it back to liberal sin and excess every time, but targeting the revered and only recently passed Robin Williams was a Christian Slime move of the first water.

Don't you just want to move next-door to that?

Here are a couple of Robertson doozies:

'There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.'

dionpalin

'The flooding of New Orleans is a sign that God is tired of seeing his creation mocked by the Mardi Gras and its perverted display of debauchery and exposed breasts.'

Robertson has a catalogue of incidents (or perhaps a roomful of binders) that should have had him certified years and years and years and years and years ago. He's stuck somewhere between 1776 and 1945.

Sad, really … until you think about how many millions (perhaps billions) Robertson and his ilk of Ick have put the tithing squeeze on their subscribers/bank-roll/churchgoers to attain.

The good preacher, Mike Huckabee, is such a disappointment.

He was practicing for the next big opportunity.

So here it is, the week Fvx Nation went Biblical. August 24, 2014. Waders on, folks. Might even need a slicker.

Or the Super Squirrel.

super-squirrel

Off to the swamp.

"Feral", said Huckabee of his targets, " "It's a cancer." … "an Existential crisis" [Is it just me to be wowed that he knew what an Existential Crisis was, never mind how to use it in the rant and rave … This GOP.Tea is even weirding itself out.

Just two days ago Huckabee was bloviating on Ferguson and other incidences of inanity going on out there.

Fvx Nation's Pastor, the goodly (SO not), former Governor of Arkansas expounded on the bucket loader of sins of President Obama. Dude can do more than play the guitar and eat fried squirrel.

Missed his calling as a P.R. guy. Mad Men Era.

Hannity’s (Re Ferguson) ‘Let Me Educate You’ Rant and Rave

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

motivator8336936

Cenk Uygur, of The Young Turks, properly found Hannity’s (Ferguson) ‘Let Me Educate You’ rant and rave a slosh condescending. They do satirical skewering withsuch stealth and humor.

Sean Hannity’s Live high-handed and dismissive debacle of a segment of Ferguson Committeewoman Patricia Bynes airtime earlier this week. Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur took justifiable offense.

BFF's Hannity and Rick Perry is a nauseating pact from the divvel'.

Teh-Stupid-Hurts-Mah-Brain

From Newshounds.

I think Uygur hit all the right points here. Hannity's shockingly condescending treatment of his guest, his bias on behalf of Police Officer Darren Wilson, and his disregard for the concerns of the protesters.

'Turning Back in Time' Named Official GOP Hobby. Women Protest.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

wrong

The War On Women by the Regressive Right is still in combat mode. Their wet dream is to get upturned back in time to Colonial Days.

Women protest.

Don't underestimate the power of American women. Ever.  We have a long history of walking the walk. A few respectful  steps behind a man, probably.

 

repubsbillo

I knew. As did all thinking persons, I fervently fanned inner resentment that the Regressive Right had designs on my female liberties. All varieties. (5-7" heels for more than two city blocks is torture enough.)

 

gop-war-against-women
From Newshound.com, some excerpts from a worthy article on some of the latest Ijditcy.

 The GOP got hammered among single women in the last election. It isn't surprising given the GOP opposition to equal pay legislation, raising the minimum wage, and their support for the plethora of anti-choice laws. The right wing slut shaming, (especially on Fox News) of those who support the contraception mandate in the ACA and the attempt to shred the social safety net were part of what the Democrats characterized as the GOP "war on women." But Fox News has steadfastly denied that such a war exists and that the GOP is really the party for us silly gals. On this morning's Fox & Friends, Anna Kooiman continued this Fox meme with former Hewlitt Packard CEO and failed GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina whose newest endeavor is a project to make us gals wake the f**k up and vote GOP!

We mean it. V O T E!!

The opening chyron framed the Fox message: "Dem's Divisive Politics, Is the War on Women Just a Smokescreen?" Anna Kooiman began with some "sobering statistics" on poverty rates and employment data on women which are all "on Obama's watch, but the left wants to blame the GOP for a so-called war on women." In introducing her guest whose last name she mispronounced, she said that Fiorina "wants to set the record straight." An almost frantic Kooiman wanted to know "why many Democrats, many voters still buying this phony war on women."

 

Vote like you mean it folks, it's a life and death issue on many mega levels.

President Obama Publicly Turns Up the Volume on ISIL and Ferguson

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare
Reality

Reality ClayBennett, ChattanoogaTimes

Dude got Bin Laden,  never bury the headline on that, fellow liberals.

President Obama has feck to spare. As does Attorney General Eric Holder - he proved himself quite the crisis manager, diplomat and calming influence already, and we can clearly expect to have justice happen in Ferguson.

thanks, obama

It oft feels, deeply felt in fact, the Legendary Brass Top o' the neocon military (and militia) have permanently scheduled wet dreams about their goal of a Military Industry Complex Renaissance. Going to be all solved with absurd number ofbullets and money pouring in, don't you know?

From Rachel Maddow, a pair of tremendous segments. Finally(!) some coverage of the possibly - allegedly - certainly wry as can be , Doctor GFY. Would have seemed an amusement had the threatening man not have been wearing both combat gear and the power he felt surging through his veins.

And this gem:

The Last Word with Lawrence acquired fine footage as well.


As always, don your complimentary Orvis Waders and grab a large sized Method™ Troll Spray - we're going into FVX and it ain't pretty. Ferguson has the network on High Hysteria from morning to night.

 

I've never seen Hannity so smug and dismissive, and 's a big list of incidences. And to hype the absurd theory that it was actually Brown's crime. That was a WTF moment heard round the global airwaves, because Fox Noise needs a binder full of fact checkers.

The more feck the better.

Secretary Kerry has said that ISIL must be destroyed and will be crushed. The West Wing got some juicing going on in a cloakroom somewhere ? We may have looked, today, a micro-amount less idiotic as a nation than has been the norm.

John Oliver will have it translated, unpacked and given the perfect soupçon of Oliver very, very soon.

Andddddddd … truly 'tis all about power. Financial peaks are good for impressing your neighbors/family and really seeing a lot more of their clan.

From CNN and via Talking Points Memo

Fresh off his reporting assignment in Ferguson, Mo., CNN anchor Don Lemon said Tuesday that one of his producers heard a member of the National Guard using a racial epithet while serving in the troubled St. Louis suburb.

While hosting a town hall called "Black and White in America," Lemon was prompted to share an anecdote from his time in Ferguson, where the Missouri National Guard was deployed earlier this week to quell the violent protests that have erupted since the fatal police shooting of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown.

"I’m just going to be honest with you," said Lemon, who is black. "Last night, one of my producers said that they — I won’t say if it’s a he or she because I don’t want to give anyone away — said they came in contact with one of the members of the National Guard and that they said, ‘You want to get out of here because you’re white because these n-words, you never know what they’re going to do.’ True story. I kid you not. 2014, a member of the National Guard. And my producer doesn’t lie. It is a true story.”

The Daily Kos took it to the mat, as well, they are so committed to the truth and actually (checked) facts.

And got some incredible footage.

Officer 'Go Fuck Yourself' got a tad out of hand. Meaning part inane part racist, and in possession of military=style weaponry. I spent a couple months in the USSR in my salad days, and it looked an awful like Ferguson at present.

If we needed proof that SOME egregiously bad apple cops are on the streets, gun fondling, here 'ya go … from Newsmax, and addressing the details of the beheading of veteran journalist Jim Foley.

A man identified as James Foley, his head shaven and dressed in an orange outfit similar to uniforms worn by prisoners at the U.S. military detention camp in Guantánamo, Cuba, is seen kneeling in the desert next to a man standing, holding a knife and clad head to toe in black.

"I call on my friends, family and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government, for what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality," the kneeling man says.

The man next to him, in a black mask, speaks in a British accent and says, "This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen, of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State."

Following his statement he beheads the kneeling man. At the end of the video, words on the side of the screen say, "Steven Joel Sotloff", as another prisoner in an orange jumpsuit is shown on screen. "The life of this American citizen, Obama, depends on your next decision," the masked man says.

We have GOT to get it together here, people … the gun fondlers are now killing with confidence, and I didn't read that in any part of the Constitution.

Unrest Revs up in Ferguson - On Day Ten

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

 

ferg2

Chris Hayes of All In has been johnny on the spot for several days in Ferguson, including a period where he and colleague Craig Melvin had some goodly-sized rocks hurled at them late last night - msnbc ran live courage into the wee hours.

Seriously?

ferguson8:18

I live on peaceful ground in Vermont, so it's been a matter of total cognitive dissonance to see Baghdad nightsbloom darkly in Missouri. Then this.

Yesterday, hopes were high for a Missouri demilitarized and headed back to normal. All day optimism rose … then dark fell. The Breaking News banners got virtually stuck in place from Ed Schultz and Reverend Al Sharpton, then Chris Hayes and Craig Melvin had excellent footage from Ferguson into the 2-3 a.m. hour.

handsup

 

From messnbc:

 


We are SO much a better country than this siege in Missouri indicates to the rest of the globe.
From The Kansas City Star:

FERGUSON, MO. Anger and frustration over the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer has been expressed through prayer vigils and peaceful protests throughout this St. Louis suburb.

During the daytime.

When the sun goes down, violence has reigned. Some fine commentary at msnbc.

It did not last. As Trymaine Lee, Amanda Sakuma, et al  reported for msnbc.

Ferguson was once again confronted with "violence and chaos" overnight.

Police fired tear gas at protesters amid the sound of explosions, shots rang out and armored police trucks sped down Florissant Avenue. At least two people, both males, were shot "in the dark of night," Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said at a press conference. Two guns and a Molotov cocktail were confiscated. There were two fires, one at a local business and another at an unoccupied residence, Johnson said. Police were hit with bottles and rocks. Thirty-one people had been arrested by 2 a.m. CT.

Johnson said police did not fire any bullets at protesters, whom he encouraged to turn out for demonstrations during the day.

"There is a dangerous dynamic in the night," Johnson said, noting that the criminal activity overnight "came from a tiny minority of law-breakers."

Among those arrested last night were Getty Images photographer Scott Olson -- the latest in a series of journalists detained by police -- who was released soon after. As Rachel noted on the show, it was another "rough night" for so many in and around Ferguson, including the First Amendment.

In a pattern that has played out night after night since 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed Aug. 9 by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, nonviolent gatherings are followed by looting and riots, tear gas and rubber bullets and dozens of arrests.

Chris Hayes and Craig Melvin got on the wrong end of some large thrown objects, the best bit of reaction was Hayes saying: "They're Angry, angry people, man!"

 

 

Attorney Eric Holder heads to Ferguson tomorrow, to lead an effort of down-simmering in accordance with the Federal and state goals of regaining order and justice in Missouri.
