President Obama is just like Hitler?

So, Hank Williams Jr., the country singer whose hit song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” has served as the intro to “Monday Night Football” for 23 seasons, has been benched after having compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during a Monday morning appearance on “Fox and Friends.”

On FOX and Friends, why is this not surprising? Just perfect, another white redneck comparing America’s first Black President to Adolf Hitler

It seems, that during no doubt a very in depth political discussion with the brain trust of FOX’s morning crew, Hank began discussing the President’s golf outing with Republican Tea Party (GOTP) Speaker of the House John Boehner this past summer; Williams said it was a political mistake, on par with “Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”

(Cue Tim Allen voice) “ar-rooo?” What kind of comparison is that? ESPN shouldn’t have benched him for making a Hitler reference; they should have benched him for making an obtuse one.

Of course the Hitler comparison wasn’t the only issue with the interview; Hank doesn’t seem very lucid throughout the segment, stumbling over his words and at one point declaring President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to be “the Three Stooges.” Even Steve Doocy figured there was something amiss there when he pointed out, “That’s only two”.

But, because his on air appearance wasn’t enough, Williams released a statement later explaining he was “misunderstood.”

“Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme — but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that pairing was.

“They’re polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.”

No doubt his moonshine and beer soaked Brain Captain wanted to continue the conversation with something like, “I mean, it’s like Mary Ann and Ginger, what’s up with that?”

So, in today’s right wing uber-conservative world when you want to say, “Why would Boehner go golfing with the President, they’re polar opposites and it makes no sense; they don’t see eye-to-eye and never will;” you actually say, “The two of them playing golf together was a political mistake, on par with Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”?

Of course after comparing the President to the most despised despot of the modern era it always helps to say, “I have always respected the office of the President.” But one can only imagine what the dangling unsaid finale to that sentence was, probably something like, “It’s just this boy I don’t respect.”

The Dixie Chicks were skewered for speaking out against the actions of Bush/Cheney, Hank should be similarly skewered; of course it doesn’t mean the end for this good old boy, he can always go on Hannity alongside Ted Nugent, or perform a set or two with Huckabee; FOX is always looking to headline this kind of performer.

Cheney says Obama should apologize to Bush administration?

Only someone as twisted and convoluted as former Vice President Dick Cheney would think the President of the United States owes the George W. Bush administration an apology after taking out terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki.

And what would be Darth Obtuses’ logic behind such a bizarre statement? Well, it appears while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, he said President Obama needs to apologize for his past criticism of how the Bush administration interrogated suspected terrorists.

The Obama administration “in effect had said that we had walked away from our ideals or taken policy contrary to our ideals when we had enhanced interrogation techniques,” the former vice president said. Al-Awlaki’s death indicates that members of the Obama administration “clearly have moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it’s justified,” Cheney said.

“You’d like an apology, it sounds like?” host Candy Crowley asked the former vice president.

“Well I would,” Cheney responded, “I think that would be a–not for me–but I think for the Bush administration.”

“I think it was a very good strike. I think it was justified,” Cheney added regarding the strike against al-Awlaki, CNN reports. But Cheney added, “I’m waiting for the administration to go back and correct something they said two years ago when they criticized us for ‘overreacting’ to the events of 9/11.”

Did Obtuses fall out of the idiot tree and hit every branch on the way to ground?

There is a world of difference on using a drone strike against a terrorist convoy and torturing a prisoner. One is an actual act of combat against a combatant; the other is the ploy of the international thug attempting to extract information.

Bush/Cheney committed acts in violation of international law when they authorized the use of torture against prisoners; President Obama acted decisively and took out a number of enemy combatants with one drone. When one is fighting a war – as in the war on terror – one uses bullets and bombs. The President doesn’t owe you – or Bush – anything; be grateful there weren’t investigations into your conduct and slink back under your rock.

Angry White Guy Claims President’s Birth Certificate Is A Fraud?


The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that aging Republican Tea Party (GOTP) crooner Pat Boone is insisting President Obama “originated in Africa” has shown the world “a photo-shopped fraud,” and that he’s not a Christian.

I guess Pat’s just one more of those uber-conservative racists who is having a difficult time adjusting to having a Black man in the White House.

Boone claims that during an alleged trip to Kenya, he (Boone) “interacted with Kenyans” who claim Obama was born there.

“I was in Kenya a year and a half ago and everybody said, ‘You know, he was born here,”’ Boone told Chronicle.

I’m just amazed that while Boone was on his “trip” to Kenya, he interacted with Kenyans. That’s as amazing as going to Germany and interacting with Germans; or going to Belgium and interacting with Belgians. Of course, I don’t think tipping the bell boy is really considered “interacting with” anyone, but hey, whatever you want to imagine Pat.

Like one of his songs, the argument is the same old tired refrain that the President of the United States is spending millions of dollars “hiding all of his records” and that esteemed “experts” have dubbed the certificate a fake.

Which experts would that be Pat, the 40s something conspiracy theorists blogging madly from the basements of their parent’s homes? Or is it anyone of the myriad of voices you hear daily from deep within your alcohol addled mind? Remember all those Hollywood drinking parties you attended while portraying yourself as that clean cut “family values” guy?

“Why else would he be hiding all of his records? He’s spending millions of dollars so that we do not have his records,” Boone said. “And experts have already looked at and been able to verify that this long-form document is a fraud… But the media ignores it… A total fraud. A photo-shopped fraud.”

Well Pat – or should we say Chuck? That is your real name isn’t it, Charles Eugene? – as a matter of fact, experts have authenticated that the long form birth certificate is legitimate (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/04/29/expert-says-obamas-birth-certificate-legit/).

Yes, the President’s birth certificate is legitimate, which is more than anyone can say about your singing career almost entirely based on “covering” Black artists’ songs during the segregated days of 1950s and 60s, or your advertising career for “Acne-Statin”; how much did you pay out for that fraud Pat?

Unfortunately, Boone appears to be part of the whole senior white guy’s club who just won’t accept their guy lost. They’ve lost touch with reality, and they’re grabbing at straws to try to illegitimize the President; as a popular bumper sticker says, “Get over it already, he’s the President”.

Pat Robertson’s a putz

One of God’s self proclaimed spokesman, Pat Robertson, is declaring it’s OK with the Lord if spouses divorce their partner with Alzheimer’s, and the whole “for richer – for poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part” is more of a guideline than a vow.

During a recent “700 Club” program on Christian Broadcast Network Pat was responding to a caller who said a “friend” had begun dating other women while his wife lies seriously ill with Alzheimer’s, and justifies it by saying that “his wife, as he knows her, is gone.”

Robertson agreed with the man saying, “What he says basically is correct. I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her.”

His co-host pressed Robertson about whether that violates the marriage vows. Robertson responded that Alzheimer’s “is a kind of death” and added, “I certainly wouldn’t put a guilt trip on you” for choosing divorce in such a scenario.

This is another symptom of today’s uber-conservative Christianity; what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine and I’m going to do unto others while I can. There isn’t a lot of Christ’s teachings any longer in some so-called Christian’s minds and churches. Robertson is a putz, and his wife should divorce him now while she has a chance and marry a good man she knows she can depend on if her health ever fails her.

Cheney Wanted to Attack Syria?

Well, surprise, surprise, former Vice President Dick Cheney has said in his new “memoir” that President George W. Bush rejected his advice in 2007 to bomb a suspected nuclear reactor site in Syria, the Associated Press (AP) is reporting.

In a truly not very surprising revelation Cheney says he was “a lone voice” for military action against Syria, while other advisers were reluctant, Cheney says, because of “the bad intelligence we had received about Iraq’s stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction” before the 2003 invasion of that country.

Wow, really? Other people were reluctant about getting the country involved in another war in the Middle East based on faulty intel? Really, that just sounds so hard to believe?

Of course we all know how anxious Mr. Cheney was to prove how tough he could be – through the proxy of young Americans – especially after all those deferments during Vietnam, but why would he really think it was necessary to tick off another Arab country, hadn’t he done enough of that by 2007? And besides, everyone with an ounce of common sense – something we also understand was pretty well non-existent after Colin Powell jumped out of the Bush/Cheney Presidential clown car – knew the Israelis were going to solve any problems there, and they did when they bombed the Syrian site later in 2007.

In his book, Cheney also writes that he was unconscious for weeks after heart surgery in 2010; some would of course argue that Dick was pretty well unconscious through most of the eight years of the Bush/Cheney co-opted presidency. Or at least his conscious was.

Cheney’s book is reported to also include criticism of other members of Bush’s administration. He accuses former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice of naiveté and says he believed former Secretary of State Colin Powell tried to undermine Bush “by criticizing administration policy to people outside the government.” Powell’s resignation after the 2004 election “was for the best,” Cheney writes.

So, it was for the best that one of the brightest and most honorable men in the cabinet resigned? Was that because he actually had combat experience, and when he spoke up in cabinet meetings and other gatherings in the Oval Office he frequently pointed out Dick’s lack of understanding on foreign policy and defense issues?

Cheney is very likely to go down in history as a war mongering, heartless, arrogant VP and one of the puppet masters behind Bush’s presidency; he is also equally likely to be remembered as one of the worse Vice President’s in our country’s history. There is not one redeeming quality about his eight years in office; Bush/Cheney were on watch when America suffered its worse attack on American soil from outsiders; they drove the country into two wars – admittedly one was justified (Afghanistan) but the second was a disaster of monumental proportions (Iraq) – and simultaneously derailed the nation’s economy, something every right-wing conservative blow hard has been blaming President Obama for since before he was sworn into office. He is warped, frustrated old man and the country is far better off to have him out of the main stream, and sitting in some office complaining about his oat meal.

Scroggins is a Christian Jihadist?

Dr. Wesley Scroggins, associate professor of business management at Missouri State University, and self-proclaimed book banner extraordinaire has declared that, “History and American Government textbooks primarily teach that the American form of government is a democracy. This is not true. The American form of government is a constitutional republic. The differences between the two forms of government are huge…A constitutional republican form of government is based on the rule of Law…”

Professor Bookbanner has also complained that the premises of democracy are atheistic and immoral, or inclined to assume a relativistic moral directive, “A democracy is based on an atheistic, humanistic worldview. Individual liberties (and everything else) are determined by the majority. It is majority rule. Underlying assumptions are that there is no absolute right and wrong. Morality is determined by the majority, it is relative. Man is free to do as the majority wishes. The desire of the majority determines right and wrong. It assumes man’s nature is good.”

Bookbanner, who is no doubt a devoted Glenn Beck worshipper, also proclaimed that, the “founding fathers” never had democracy in mind when they broke away from England,

“They feared and hated democracy. They possessed a Biblical worldview and knew that democracy could never sustain individual liberty for very long.”

Of course Bookbanner then produced a list of quotations from the “founding fathers”, all carefully cropped to support his very narrow view into the minds of some of the 19th-century’s brightest minds.

According to Bookbanner, Thomas Jefferson once said, “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty‐one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty‐nine.”

Perhaps Dr. Scroggins should have verified Jefferson said it before quoting him? According to an article written by Washington Post Staff Writer, Monica Hesse in a 15 August 2007 article on Karl Rove, “Sorry, guys. The esteemed founder never said it. The folks at Monticello’s research library witheringly say that old saw has been dogging him for years.”

But Scroggins – as many conservative jihadists today – picks and chooses what he claims the Founding Fathers said to incite groups like the Republic School Board to ban books.

Jefferson of course would never have penned something that sounded do Federalist in nature, and wrote repeatedly of his belief that his new found country was indeed a democracy and that Americans were democrats, “We of the United States, you know, are constitutionally and conscientiously Democrats.”—April 24, 1816, Letter to M. Dupont de Nemours

Dr Bookbanner, after misquoting the Founders in such a way to claim they would have supported his supposition that they hated democracy, demanded that “It is the duty of the Republic School District to teach the truth about our form of government.”

He also charged the Republic School District with teaching the “myth” that “the separation of church and state is a constitutional principle.”

Bookbanner claimed, “To teach children that a nativity scene, or anything else, violates the First Amendment principle of the separation of church and state is nothing more than a lie. It is the moral duty of this school district to teach the truth of this issue: that the separation of church and state is a myth and is not found in the Constitution. It is impossible to violate something that does not exist.”

But wait, Bookbanner was also quite upset with the notion that teachers in Republic were teaching freedom of expression to their students, “The concept of freedom of expression was created in the 1940s by the liberal U.S. Supreme Court and has been used since to justify many perversions in our society in the name of an individual’s right of freedom of expression, including the evils of abortion, homosexuality, and pornography.”

Or to allow moronic college business professors to spread their misinformation to unsuspecting small town school boards in their attempts to have literature villified and banned. Scroggins is a small minded right-wing conservative jihadists wanting to enforce his own brand of Christian sharia law. He claims to love and revere the Founding Fathers but misquotes them in order to misinform the public; perhaps the Board of Regent at his university should begin sitting in on his classes to ensure what he teaches isn’t as equally incorrect?

Mass executions will end the riots in Britain?

The moon is almost full, the winds howling off the moors, and the Banshee is flying – oh wait, it’s just Ann Coulter.  Considering what she spews, she is the next best thing to a Banshee, a very uneducated, uncouth and unappealing banshee.

In her “Human Events” column Coulter starts off by observing, “Those of you following the barbaric rioting in Britain will not have failed to notice that a sizable proportion of the thugs are white, something not often seen in this country.”

Meaning what? That white people don’t riot here in America, riots here are only caused by the barbaric Blacks, Indians and Latinos? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s what she meant to imply, especially when you consider the audience she writes for. The angry white male red neck Christian uber-conservative FOX News watching crowd; you know the type, the ones who show up at “spontaneous” Tea Party events with racist signs carrying guns.

Coulter’s uneducated guess is that the cause of the rioting in the UK is it’s entitlements, “With a welfare system far more advanced than the United States, the British have achieved the remarkable result of turning entire communities of ancestral British people into tattooed, drunken brutes.”

“I guess we now have the proof of what conservatives have been saying since forever: Looting is a result of liberal welfare policies. And Britain is in the end stages of the welfare state.”

Coulter then went on ad nauseam about single mothers in the UK and how all the young people there are drunk, tattooed, sex crazed and on the dole; and that it’s the county’s “redistributive welfare system” that is “ fast returning the native population to its violent 18th-century highwaymen roots.”

England is returning to its violent 18th-century highwaymen roots”? Can she be any more insulting to the English? Her words imply that the vast majority of the English population during the 18th-century were robbers and thieves. I wonder if that includes the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin; after all they were all Englishmen during the 18th-century. The revered Founding Fathers were highwaymen?

Continuing her spewtations, the Banshee said, “Democrats would be delighted if violent mobs like those in Britain arose here — perhaps in Wisconsin! That would allow them to introduce yet more government programs staffed by unionized public employees, as happened after the 1992 L.A. riots and the 1960s race riots.”

Again, wow. “Democrats would be delighted if violent mobs like those in Britain arose here – perhaps in Wisconsin!?” OK, she’s insane; that’s the only rational explanation for anyone to write something that absurd. That’s just stupid; no it’s beyond stupid it’s incredibly moronic, and yet thousands of FOX News conservatives across the country are nodding in agreement with her.

Banshee went on to howl, “Inciting violent mobs is the essence of the left’s agenda: Promote class warfare, illegitimate children and an utterly debased citizenry.”

Yes she caught us. Inciting violent mobs is and always has been on the left’s agenda; good old liberals like Samuel and John Adams inciting the debased citizenry of Boston into throwing that tea overboard and to revolt against good King George. Of course let’s not forget Benjamin Franklin fathering some illegitimate children.Thank God for Liberals eh Ann?

And what oh witch of the moors is the cure for the riots?

“A few well-placed rifle rounds and the rioting would end in an instant. A more sustained attack on the rampaging mob might save England from itself, finally removing shaved-head, drunken parasites from the benefits rolls that Britain can’t find the will to abolish on moral or utilitarian grounds,” Banshee screams. “We can be sure there’s no danger of killing off the next Winston Churchill​ or Edmund Burke​ in these crowds.”

Typical conservative answer, mass murder of your own citizenry; now what other uber-conservative nations have done that very thing? Let me think; oh yeah, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.  I guess there’s little doubt which side Coulter would have rooted for; she’s already proven herself – on numerous occasions – to be both a racist and an anti-Semite.

“This is how civilizations die,” the Banshee declares. “It can happen overnight, as it did in Revolutionary France​. If Britain of 1939 were composed of the current British population, the entirety of Europe would today be doing the “Heil Hitler” salute and singing the “Horst Wessel Song.” And of course Ms Coulter would be singing in the bass section.
