Seriously, "Joe the Plumber"? "1939-45, 6 million Jews and 7 million others exterminated" weren't Holocaust references?


Remember this video from the other day in which we can plainly hear the words, "from 1939 to 1945, 6 million Jews and 7 million others... were exterminated"?

You heard that too, right? Now what could those references be about? If you said, "The Holocaust" you'd be right. Here's what Not Joe the Not Plumber said, per The Toledo Blade:

[H]e blamed the media for unfairly spinning the story.

"All I said was gun control was implemented, and then governments proceeded to violate human rights," Mr. Wurzelbacher said. "Nowhere did I mention the Holocaust or was I even talking about it."

Psst! Genocide from 1939-1945 means "Holocaust". And you mentioned it.

Phil Christofanelli, spokesman for the Wurzelbacher Campaign, dug himself and Candidate Sam into a deeper hole:

"The argument is that gun control created the environment in which it was considerably easier for Nazis and other tyrannical governments to engage in human rights abuses, so I believe the point of the video was to highlight a number of human rights abuses that were facilitated by gun control... Joe did not say the Holocaust was caused by gun control... I think it's a big difference to say gun control caused the Holocaust, which is not our position... His position is policies like gun control are implemented by tyrannical governments... Well, blacks weren't allowed to own guns in the South, that's a historical fact as well... So, it would seem that the argument would apply there as well."

Yes, you read that correctly. Slavery was due to gun control, too. Who knew? But I'm sure if you ask him about it, he'll say Team Wurzelbacher never mentioned that either.

Then Christofanelli said all the silly controversy was the "sympathetic liberal media's" fault for noticing and reporting the contents of the video. Of course, dear, you just go right on believing that.

As for "Joe," he needs a few history lessons. Or maybe he could learn to use "The Google"! It even has pictures!

VIDEO- S*** "Joe the Plumber" says: Gun control laws are responsible for Armenian genocide, Holocaust of the Jews


If you hunt or just like shooting guns, the 2nd Amendment will always be a good thing. History also tells us it's our last line of defense in the face of an out-of-control government. And killing fruits and vegetables is... what? Better watch the video to see...

Speaking of out of control, Samuel Wurzelbacher the Not Plumber needs his head examined. He clearly hangs out with Wayne LaPierre and his crowd, because the s*** they say only makes sense to them.

2010 AUDIO: President of Ireland kicks right wing radio host's arse


Via AnnetteK at DKos who tells us that this amazing rant was recorded in 2010, but was only recently posted on YouTube. Transcript here:

You’re about as late arrival in Irish politics as Sarah Palin is in American politics, and both of you have the same tactic. The tactic is to get a large crowd, whip them up, try and discover what is the greatest fear, work on that, and feed it right back and you get a frenzy, and that leads you in time, then, to when you have in fact maybe one of the most gifted Presidents elected – though I happen not to agree with all his foreign policy – but you know, you regard, for example, someone who happens to have been a professor at Harvard as somehow [?] handicapped. You don’t find anything wrong with all this Tea Party ignorance that been brought all around the United States, which is regularly insulting people who have been democratically elected.

The president of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, kicks Michael Graham's (US right wing radio host) arse.

Sarah Palin slam-- Check.

Right wing fear mongering-- Check.

Gifted president-- Check.

Education is good-- Check.

Tea Party ignorance-- Check.

Decent, generous Americans-- Check.

War mongering foreign policies-- Check.

Building peace = anti-Semitism and martyring Jews: Idiotic-- Check.

Nailing wingnuttery masterfully-- Check.

Be proud to be "a decent American instead of a wanker whipping up fear"-- Check, check, and mate!


VIDEO- Value Voters speaker: Major League Baseball prevented another 9/11


The speaker is Bryan Fischer of the conservative Christian group the American Family Association.

I cannot begin to tell you how sick and tired I am, generally, of the constant injection of religion into politics. It has no place there, period, yet every clip I've seen on the Tee Vee Machine today has been about America being "a Christian nation"; whether Mormonism is a cult or not a cult; evangelical Christianity; President Obama's religious beliefs, and how all of that holier-than-thou b.s. affects the GOP presidential race.

Forgive my cranky bluntness, but I'm truly fed up.

Honestly, if I hadn't seen the above video posted at TPM, I'd have sworn it was from Funny or Die. Except for one thing: It's really not funny. Not at all.

Gotta laugh or you cry.


VIDEO: Rick Perry endorser bashes Mormonism... for five minutes


"Mormonism is a cult."

At the Value Voters Summit, Dr. Robert Jeffress, a Texas pastor, had a holier-than-thou thing or two to say about a thing or two. Wait just a minute, doesn't the Bible say it's not cool to judge others

Via Dave Weigel:

Jeffress took the stage, as promised, and repeated his statement, adding to it. Perry was a "genuine follower of Jesus Christ!"

Perry walked onstage and thanked Jeffress for the endorsement.

"He really knocked it out of the park!" [...]

After the speeches, Jeffress walked through the hotel doing interview after interview about his take on Mormonism."Article 6 of the Constitution says government can impose no religious tests," he said. "But private citizens can impose all the tests they like!"

For the 8948490854012th time, religion and politics do not mix. To say that all these attempts to inject church into state is disturbing is a vast understatement.

VIDEO: Michele Bachmann just kidding when she said Hurricane Irene was a message to Washington. Har, har, har.


Michele Bachmann, you kidder, you. Always cracking wise, always there with a quip, always joking about stuff that her very own god says to her. Oh wait, she's not?

That line tying God to the recent earthquake and to Hurricane Irene? Just kidding! Just a joke! Isn't that just like her? Oh wait, it's not? What about all those other times she told us "God made me do it"?

"Obviously she was saying it in jest," Alice Stewart told TalkingPointsMemo Monday.
