Bill O’Reilly Is Very Peeved That People Found His Racist Rant Racist

It's worth clicking through some of the links on this one. There's lots of good stuff here.

A Year in Jail for Not Believing in God? How Kentucky is Persecuting Atheists | Alternet

Quote:
The law states, "The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God as set forth in the public speeches and proclamations of American Presidents, including Abraham Lincoln's historic March 30, 1863, presidential proclamation urging Americans to pray and fast during one of the most dangerous hours in American history, and the text of President John F. Kennedy's November 22, 1963, national security speech which concluded: "For as was written long ago: 'Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.'"

Not that I'm defending the law, but the article's title is rather sensationalist. The year in jail would apply to whoever failed to put up the plaque outside the homeland security building. Not good, but hardly worthy of the "year in jail for not believing in God," line.

So I have some wingnutter friends on my Facebook feed. Most are old high school friends from my rural hometown. One of them posted this photo from the Tea Party's Facebook page:


I looked through the comments and realized that the genius at the Tea Party had fucked up. They thought they were posting a painting of the first Thanksgiving, and used that image to try and get a dig in to their "enemies".

Quote:
The First Thanksgiving....

And we apologize in advance to Liberals who may be offended by this photo of white heterosexual Christians sharing a peaceful meal and their company with the native Americans of which none of it was paid for by food stamps.
Only one problem: the painting has yellow beer bottles in it. Turns out the rocket scientist at the Tea Party page on Facebook wasn't paying attention. He/she didn't realize that it was an advertising campaign image from Anheiser-Busch, not the original painting.

So I pointed it out to my high school friend.
Quote:
This is not authentic. It is an Anheiser-Busch beer ad. Look closely and you'll see yellow bottles of beer. Someone running the Tea Party website goofed badly.

The original, undoctored painting is here:
Thanksgiving Day: “First Thanksgiving, The,” reproduction of an oil painting by Ferris -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia
Her response:
Quote:
I saw it, but did not think anyone would take notice of the pot of beer in the corner. Either way it is the meaning behind the picture and if they really had a pot of beer the Christians would have shared it in good faith.
Not for a minute do I believe that she actually noticed the bottles. My response to her:
Quote:
I get a different meaning from the picture. The pilgrims *should* have shared with the Indians, it was only right since they would have died without the Indians' help.

The first winter the Pilgrims ran out of food and it was the Indians who took from their own food reserves and gave the Pilgrims enough food to last through the winter. And it was the Indians who gave them the seeds for corn, beans and squash to plant the next spring, and showed them how to plant them. They even gave the Pilgrims the land to build the town and plant their gardens.

Without the Indians, the Pilgrims would have all starved to death or died from the harsh New England winter during the first year of the settlement.


I think she sensed she was in trouble now:
Quote:
Yes, you ARE right, the Indians did save the pilgrims - I guess I am just looking at the simple meaning of gathering together and sharing a meal and fellowship and that we all can get along no matter how different we are. Happy Thanksgiving!
Even though that is clearly NOT what the Tea Party intended in its "simple meaning", I decided not to push the issue any further. :popcorn:

Speaking of His Frothiness,

Santorums new cause - opposing the disabled

In his defense, he probably doesn't mind the cripples or retards, but has a problem with the AIDS fags and cooperating with furriners.

Assaulted with SantorumThe former presidential candidate pronounced his “grave concerns” about the treaty, which forbids discrimination against people with AIDS, who are blind, who use wheelchairs and the like. “This is a direct assault on us,” he declared at a news conference.

When I was a kid they had a patch of concrete with an old volleyball tied to a pole so we could play teatherball, some guy made climbing bars out of old pipes, and they dropped an old tree trunk in the middle that you could climb around on. The rest was rocked over so they didn't have to mow.

Our elementary school didn't waste money on stuff like kids and if you didn't like it the school principal could smack you around.

Back then we were free. :eagletear:

This is to weed them out

I went to his wikipedia to see if he had children, so that I could then make this awesome remark about how I wonder if he did any serious deliberation into whether he should reproduce or if he just did it because that's what everybody does. But if he has kids or is married it doesn't say on wikipedia. :darn:

What I read was pretty good, though. He has a history of wreckless driving, speeding up to 100 mph, and crashing a small plane. Real stand-up guy.

Sure he does. Being greedy is good, being needy is evil. That's the Conservative creed right there.

Bauer doesn't know the difference between being a decent human with a functioning moral imagination, and being a piece of shit with a sociopathic ideology.

Okay this. Why are so many conservatives so fucking callous? It's not even being a dick. Dicks care about things and have feelings...it's the cold, flat not giving a flying fuck what happens to anyone else ever that gives me the heebie jeebies.

If you're poor, it must be from some moral failing.

Sadly that's the political and religious ideology we Americans have traditionally believed in, it justified all sorts of things from slavery to work houses and now getting rid of the social safety net, which was only recently and hastily put up.
Fox-Priven & Cloward "Regulating the Poor: The Functions of Public Welfare" do a bang up job of describing the system we've inherited.

What I read was pretty good, though. He has a history of wreckless driving, speeding up to 100 mph, and crashing a small plane. Real stand-up guy.
He was speeding up to run over squirrels. And that plane crash, he was aiming for a stray puppy.
