The Chilling Rise of Right-Wing Hate in America


The radical right wingers that were so prevalent during the Clinton administration went dormant during the Bush years.
Now irresponsible sociopaths like Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck and Rep. Michele Bachmann are recklessly stoking
the fires of paranoid rightwing victimization, I fear we will face countless tragedies like what just went on in PittsburgH.

When right wing radicals get upset, they either shoot lots of people and or pull a Timothy McVeigh.

This is what Glenn Beck’s citizen army looks like. People like Michelle Malkin fantasize about citizens rising up against
the (Democratic) state. They stoke their followers’ paranoia with bullshit that, mostly, they know is bullshit, for ratings
and a shot at political traction.

How many people have to die before the right-wing media acknowledges their complicity in these kinds of attacks
and voluntarily dials back their inflammatory rhetoric and incitements to violence?  Sadly, I think it's going to take a
long time for that to happen -- and a lot more innocent people are going to die in the interim. I guess this is what
"America First" means for the radical right under an Obama presidency.

The Bearded Ole Guy


There will never be justice in the United States until this drunken asshole
is jailed for mass murder, corruption, flagrant violations of the law,
and his refusal to recognize human rights. He is also responsible for the worst attack
on the United States since Pearl Harbor. He is directly reponsible for the misery and lost hopes
of millions of human beings because of his reckless handling of the American economy.



"The hate speech on the right is loud and ubiquitous, and getting even more so. There are people with
much influence and wide audiences, spurring others to do things like this. Not everyone is going to,
but all it takes is one individual disturbed enough to take "justice" into his own hands. This may be the
first major act of violence precipitated by this toxic ideology during the Obama administration, but it won't
be the last. We're less than a hundred days into a near-1500 day term. It's only beginning."

Right-Wing Lies: Will They Ever End?
   by  John Hinderaker, Mayor of Monkeytown   (I wish I had a graphic for Monkey Opinion)


Torture has been illegal for a number of years, (Which is why Bush belongs in prison) and Bush insisted just as strongly
as Obama that the U.S. does not torture. (But Bush was lying)  There was a legitimate debate about waterboarding,
(I don't recall that - I remember right-wingers screaming 'traitor' at anyone who questioned Der Fuhrer)
which does no physical injury, and which I do not believe constitutes torture.

This is complete horseshit.
If Willie Horton ambushed this handjob and his daughter in a dark parking lot and put a loaded gun in her mouth and
demanded that Hindraker blow him, he probably would - yet Willie's actions did no physical injury, so there's no threat, right?
If there's no threat, John, why are you so eagerly blowing Willie Horton?

But according to press reports, only two or three top-ranking terrorists were waterboarded, none after 2003.
(Those Cheney-planted press reports can't be verified)  And waterboarding has been banned by the U.S. military
since 2006. (Which is why Bush belongs in prison)  So what was Obama's purpose in implying that until he came along,
Bush was engaged in torturing prisoners?   His speech was carried live by Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, broadcast into countries
where "torture" doesn't mean getting your face wet.

Getting your face wet?
So if I defecate and urinate in a tub for a month, then force Hinmderaker's head into that mess until he's forced to swallow,
he's going to laugh that off as a harmless prank because nothing happened to him besides getting his face wet?

See how they lie?

They HAVE to lie because the truth does not serve their purpose.

WaHoPo: George Will is a Liar


I can’t think of another instance when a news story at a newspaper explicitly called out an op-ed writer in the
same paper for lying, by name. It’s pretty extraordinary. I can only imagine that something like this got passed up
the editorial food chain, from science editor Nils Bruzelius to national news editor Kevin Merida, and perhaps beyond.
(The Post will not talk on record about their editorial process; they "stand behind their reporting" and so forth.)

Hard to read it as anything but a rebuke from the news team to Post editor Fred Hiatt and his editorial page’s
"multi-layer editing process," which allowed Will to lie and mislead on climate change three times just in the last
few months, even after being corrected, publicly, by multiple sources.

Along the same lines, see this new piece on the Post’s weather blog, by Andrew Freeman:
'Will Misleads Readers on Climate Science - Again.'"

Lying about global warming is the pre-emptive murder of your grandkids.

 Subject: on his watch

Bartcop, dude, buddyboy,

You can gripe all you want about 911 happening on Bush's watch 
but it was three months after he becamew prisident. 

September is 3 months after January?

You know, I know and Bob Dole even knows that it happened because Clinton 
ignored numerous terrorist actions including an attack on the World Trade Center. 

No, Clinton found and arrested those bastards and they are in jail right now.
Have you been getting your "facts" from Rush and Hannity again?

You're being pretty damn obtuse to pretends that Bush 
received a memo that indicated it would happen. 

Yeah, *I* made that up, printed it on  bartcop.com  and now
the whole world thinks that happened because of me.

It was a memo...

Now you admit there was a memo?

...that stated that attacks were imminent but since that was already 
a stated goal of terrorists it is clear who allowed it to happen. 
Historians will look between the Bushes.
 Carson the MMG Monkey

You're right - it's clear who let it happen.

Fucking the Injured Soldiers


For more than a year he's been seeking treatment at Fort Carson for a brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Sgt. X is also suffering through the Army's confusing disability payment system, handled by something called a medical
evaluation board. The process of negotiating the system has been made harder by his war-damaged memory. Sgt. X's wife
has to go with him to doctor's appointments so he'll remember what the doctor tells him...

When Sgt. X went to see McNinch with a tape recorder, he was concerned that something was amiss with his diagnosis.
He wanted to find out why the psychologist had told the medical evaluation board that handles disability payments that Sgt. X
did not, in fact, have PTSD, but instead an "anxiety disorder," which could substantially lower the amount of benefits he would
receive if the Army discharged him for a disability. The recorder in Sgt. X's pocket captured McNinch in a moment of candor...

"OK," McNinch told Sgt. X. "I will tell you something confidentially that I would have to deny if it were ever public.
Not only myself, but all the clinicians up here are being pressured to not diagnose PTSD and diagnose anxiety disorder instead."
McNinch told him that Army medical boards were "kicking back" his diagnoses of PTSD, saying soldiers had not seen
enough trauma to have "serious PTSD issues."

"Unfortunately," McNinch told Sgt. X, "yours has not been the only case ... I and other doctors are under a lot of pressure
to not diagnose PTSD. It's not fair. I think it's a horrible way to treat soldiers, but unfortunately, you know, now the V.A.
is jumping on board, saying, 'Well, these people don't have PTSD,' and stuff like that."

Republican whores always say, "We stand by the troops" but then they vote to deny them medical treatment.
If only the Democrats would list these facts, these soldiers could get the help they need.

You asked if you could be a pro-choice Catholic?

You’re a democrat, right?
Do you agree with everything Democrats profess?

Same with American Catholics.
Most of us despise this ridiculous crazy Pope as well.

SP, it's not the same.
I don't confess my sins to the Catholics.
I don't swear to God that I believe in the Democrats.
If you swear to God and don't mean it, won't He be angry?

Unless they changed the rules, one can't be forgiven
for a sin about which one is not remorseful.

Unless they changed the rules, that person can't get into Heaven
because his mortal sins remain on his remorseless soul.

Bottom line, logical people can't get into Heaven.
Bottom line, Heaven is a lottery for lucky people.
Who would buy into such a nutty system?

Troops In Iraq Cheer/Mob Obama


Obama was welcomed like a returning war hero by hundreds of ecstatic US troops during a surprise visit to Iraq.
The pop-in provided Obama with a stunning photo op as soldiers mobbed him, trying for handshakes and hugs,
many snapping shots with their own cameras.

The televised, four-star lovefest likely will prove critical to the credibility of a liberal commander-in-chief as he tries
to sell the American public on the grim prospects now facing the country in Afghanistan. The stealthy, four-hour visit
and Obama's remarks were all that much more notable because of his strenuous opposition to the Iraq war from
before it began, and his commitment to end it now that he is president.

"We love you," shouted one soldier, to which Obama quickly replied, 'I love you back!'"

 What a pitiful liar Specter is - claiming he didn't, personally, hear Rush say it

 Truth is, like all Republicans, Specter is afraid of Rush.

 BTW, Arlen, you probably never personally heard Hitler say "Death to the Jews,"
 so that would make Hitler merely a man who was "expressing his opinions?"

Hypocritical Ass Quotes

"Not so long ago, when a politician was caught with a whore, it meant not only the end of his political career,
but extended exile from polite society.  This was particularly true of politicians. It was exactly one year ago
that Governor Spitzer was revealed to be the client of a prostitution ring--some of whose employees have since
gone to prison--and obliged to step down from office 'in disgrace'. Now all is forgiven! "
      -- some handjob at the weakly standard,  Link

"By the Weekly Standard’s standards, Senator Vitter should also be in "extended exile from polite society."
Spitzer left office but Vitter is running for another term in the Senate.  If the Standard thinks Spitzer should be
in extended exile, presumably it thinks Vitter should join him."
    --  Phil Singer,   Link

There's nothing wrong with paying for sex. It's as "wrong" as smoking pot, meaning it's wrong because some
religiously-insane fools claimed they talked to God and God told them he didn't like those kinds of behavior.

What's wrong is running on a "sex is bad" platform, and then you get caught with a woman.
What's wrong is running on a "queers are bad" platform, and then you get caught with a man (or boy) in your mouth.

Random Thoughts...

I still don't get this piracy business.
I'm so old, I remember when men of war said,
"If you rule the skies, you rule the war."

We not only own the sky, we own f-ing space.
Our satellites can't track ships in the Indian Ocean? 

They said when Nixon went to China in 1968 (?) our satellites back then could tell 
which dude was Nixon and which dude was the Commie bastard at the time.
That's over 40 years ago and they say the military is years ahead of Microsoft.

If we could track combovers in 1968, why can't we track pirate ships in 2009?
A ship makes a call - "We think we're about to be boarded,"
and angry F-22s take off in their direction - why isn't this happening?

 Subject: perfect English

Phillippe Sands said it in perfect English--"If I were they..."
Stupid Americans would tend to say (improperly)--"If I was them..."
Check things out before criticizing an educated man!

Hi, Bartcop! I've been reading your site for a while and I like it a lot. 
But sometimes jump in with a comment without thinking it through. 
Phillippe Sands' grammar was perfectly correct when he said, "If I were they ...". 
He was using the subjunctive form of "to be" because he is absolutely not "they". 
That's also why he uses "I were" instead of "I was".  Remember, from English classes?
Anyway, continued good luck with your site. I'd contribute if I could, but am currently jobless. 
Best to you and Mrs. Bart always.

Bart, I hope you were just being sarcastic…..it is grammatically 
correct to say, “If I were they, I would think carefully…”.

Bart: you've got nerve correcting someone's English.
"If I were they" seems inelegant, but is technically correct in the Queen's tongue.
Go back to hammering and leave the grammar to the pros, dude.
 Carmody in Wichita

Philippe Sands' grammar is correct, and his statement is not illogical.
Grammatically, he is employing the subjunctive conditional, contrary to fact,
as when the Cowardly Lion sings "If I  were king of the forrrrest."
He's not, but if he were....

Sands'  pronoun "they" is also correct because it is a predicate nominative.
With regard to logic, it's analogous to saying "If I were you...."   How can I be you?

The word "if" allows I to be you.

I can't, nor am I claiming to be.
Likewise, Sands  is not claiming to be more than one person.
Grammarian and Logician

You are all wrong.
It's tough being right when everybody else is wrong.
This is about math, and one can't be several.
It's like saying, "IF I were a married couple" or "If I were a football team..."

Proper English would be, "If I were one of Bush's murderous thugs..."
That keeps things singular.

All that subjunctive conditional and predicate nominative crap doesn't hunt.
Besides, I'm was raised by nuns.
My grammer is the goodest.
