Top 10 Wingnuts Whose Deaths I’d Celebrate, 2010 Edition

Glenn Beck is No. 1!

The May 2007 death of Jerry Falwell inspired me at that time to compose a “Top 10 Wingnuts Whose Deaths I’d Celebrate List.” It seems to be that time of year for top-10 lists, and the great news that Rush Limbaugh is in the hospital for chest pains has inspired me to revisit and revamp my list.

In May 2007 my list of Top 10 Wingnuts Whose Deaths I’d Celebrate was as follows:

1. Dick Cheney

2. George W. Bush

3. Karl Rove

4. Donald Rumsfeld

5. Rudy Giuliani

6. Ann Cunter

7. Rush Limbaugh

8. Pope Palpatine

9. James Dobson

10. Pat Robertson

My Top 10 Wingnuts Whose Deaths I’d Celebrate for 2010 are (drum roll, please):

1. Glenn Beck

2. Dick Cheney

3. Sarah Palin

4. George W. Bush

5. Rush Limbaugh

6. Karl Rove

7. Pope Palpatine

8. John McCainosaurus

9. Benedict Lieberman

10. Tie: Carrie Prejean and Prick Warren

New to the list are Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, John McCainosaurus, Benedict (a.k.a. Joe) Lieberman, Prick (a.k.a. Rick) Warren and Carrie Prejean.

As I’ve noted before, dry drunk Beck has a face that I’d like to punch. I know that Dick Cheney has done a lot more damage to the nation and the world than Beck has, but I really, really, really hate Glenn Beck. He is pure evil — a mixture of stupidity, bigotry and arrogance that is unmatched in the wingnut world. My hatred of him is visceral.

George W. Bush also has done a lot more damage to the nation and the world than Sarah Palin has, but I fucking hate Sarah Palin and everything that she stands for. (OK, Levi Johnston is a hottie. If he ran for president I might consider him.)

Bush and Cheney are a little lower on the list than they used to be because they’re out of office, but Cheney is above Bush on both lists because we all know that he really pulled the strings.

Karl Rove remains on the list because he and fellow Gee Dubya puppeteer Cheney Cheney are still appearing on television all the time criticizing the Obama administration. If they’d just go the fuck away, like Donald Rumsfeld and Rudy Giuliani did, they might not still be on my list.

John McCainosaurus didn’t appear on my 2007 list because I didn’t expect him to get the 2008 nomination, but he did. And because he also keeps criticizing the Obama administration, as though the BushCheneyCorp had done a great job from early 2001 to early 2009, and even though the American voters picked Obama over him by 7 percentage points, McCainosaurus makes this year’s list.

The pope just refuses to die — I think that sheer spite, his desire to drag the entire world back to the dark ages, keeps him going — and he goes up one notch this year. (I know, you think it’s awful that I include the pope, but he and his backasswards wingnutty views fuck up millions of people around the globe.)

Benedict Lieberman needs no explanation if you have been paying attention at all. I heard that Al Gore stated that he doesn’t regret that he’d picked Benedict as his running mate for his 2000 presidential run. I don’t believe that.

Dropped from the list are James Dobson and Pat Robertson, about whom you don’t hear much anymore, and in their place is Prick Warren and Carrie Prejean, who (along with Sarah Palin) seem to be the new faces of the remnants of what passes for Christianity for way too many Americans. I hate Prick Warren and Carrie Prejean, and since they have so much in common — the whole faux Godliness thing — I put them at tied for 10th place.

You might be surprised that Ann Cunter has dropped from the list. Oh, don’t get me wrong; I still fucking hate Ann Cunter. But Glenn Beck seems to have knocked her out of the limelight entirely.

So I would put her at No. 11, except that this is a top-10 list.

Maybe next year, Ann.

P.S. If you think that I’m missing anyone or you’d make any changes to my list for 2010, feel free to leave a comment below.

P.P.S. I will make a pre-emptive strike and state that I am immune to any criticism that my composing such a top-10 list is “inappropriate.” I mean, oh puhfuckinglease if you think that there aren’t a bunch of people the wingnuts would want dead, such as Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore and, of course, Barack Obama (but not because he’s black, of course!).

P.P.P.S.: Honorable mentions for 2010: Joe Wilson, the fucktarded U.S. representative from South Carolina who yelled out “You lie!” during President Obama’s nationally televised address to Congress on health care, and Meg Whitman, the billionaire bitch who is trying to buy the governorship of California (the gubernatorial election will be in November 2010). I imagine that we Californians will hear a lot more from her in the coming months. What we’ve heard from her thus far (she has declared war upon state government workers and the environment) has been nothing short of pathetic.

Still desperately seeking a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties

Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians, whose land the Israelis occupy, continues. The Associated Press reports that in Israel’s eight days of aggression against the Palestinians that most of the civilized world has condemned, more than 480 Palestinians have been slaughtered — to only four Israelis killed, fewer than one Israeli for every 100 Palestinians.

Yet the unelected, mass-murdering Bush regime still blames everything on Hamas and won’t renounce the Israelis’ continuing insanely lop-sided slaughter.

It seems fairly clear what Israel is doing now: knowing that the Bush regime is out the door soon, bloodthirsty Israeli wingnuts decided that they’d slaughter as many Palestinians as they could while they still had the full cover of the United States government.

It’s very doubtful that President-elect Barack Obama once in office will treat the Palestinians with even-handedness and fairness, but my guess is that he’ll be more sensitive to world opinion than has been the outgoing Bush regime, and that with Obama behind the wheel Israel won’t have quite the blank check that the Bush regime has given it.

Sexy brainiac Glenn Greenwald has been writing about how Democratic and Repugnican politicians are virtually indistinguishable in their blindly slavish support for Israel; he writes that “the suffocating, fully bipartisan orthodoxy [that] typically predominates in America when it comes to Israel — thou shalt not speak ill of Israel, thou shalt support all actions it takes — is in full force with this latest conflict.”

Greenwald notes that “Democratic voters overwhelmingly oppose the Israeli offensive — by a 24-point margin,” yet “Democratic Party leaders — including Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi — are just as lockstep [as are the Repugnicans] in their blind, uncritical support for the [current] Israeli attack, in their absolute refusal to utter a word of criticism of, or even reservations about, Israeli actions.”

Greenwall asks:

Is there any other significant issue in American political life, besides Israel, where (a) citizens split almost evenly in their views, yet (b) the leaders of both parties adopt identical lockstep positions which leave half of the citizenry with no real voice?

More notably still, is there any other position, besides Israel, where (a) a party’s voters overwhelmingly embrace one position (Israel should not have attacked Gaza) but (b) that party’s leadership unanimously embraces the exact opposite position (Israel was absolutely right to attack Gaza and the U.S. must support Israel unequivocally)? Does that happen with any other issue?

Probably not, but, as I have noted before, most of the Democratic “leadership” opposes same-sex marriage* — even though, I surmise, the majority of Democratic voters support same-sex marriage.**

Polls taken in the last month indicate that as many as 44 percent of Americans support same-sex marriage and that 63 percent of Americans support some sort of legal recognition for same-sex couples, although not all of them are OK with calling it marriage. Only 30 percent are opposed to any sort of legal recognition for same-sex couples, and the rest are undecided.

A poll taken in the last month also indicates that 52 percent of Americans would oppose amending the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage in all 50 states (43 percent would favor doing so, with the rest undecided) and that 49 percent of Americans would vote against amending their own state’s constitution to ban same-sex marriage (45 percent would vote to write hatred into their state’s constitution, with the rest undecided).

The Obama administration has a chance to take some real leadership on the same-sex marriage issue. If the Prick Warren fiasco is any indicator, though, the Obama administration will be about as great on equal human and civil rights for non-heterosexuals as was the Clinton administration.

The Democrats sure love to get our non-heterosexuals’ money, but have a severe problem delivering much, if anything, in return.

*Barack Obama’s public stance is that each state should decide the issue of same-sex marriage for itself — although we don’t leave most civil-rights matters up to each state for very good reason. Obama’s stance is the coward’s way out, and the “states’ rights” argument is soundly rejected by those who fight for rights for racial minorities. 

**I have been unable to find recent polls on same-sex marriage broken down by the respondents’ political party affiliation, but it’s a good guess that most of those who say in polls that they oppose same-sex marriage are Repugnicans and that most who say in polls that they support it are Democrats.

Why Barack Obama is dead to me

I could just post these two news photos to explain why I’m not exactly moist, to put it mildly, over the inauguration of Barack Obama three weeks from today:

Three Palestinian children from the Balosha family, of five ...

In this Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2008 file photo, Pastor Rick Warren ...

Associated Press photos

The second photo of the bloated baby boomer with the shit-eating grin is, of course, of Prick Warren, the homophobic stupid white man who, in the spirit of “inclusion,” Obama invited to give the invocation at the inauguration.

Gay most definitely is the new black if a black Democrat sees no problem inviting a homophobe to open his inauguration.

A gay male co-worker of mine recently stated that he isn’t going to let Prick Warren ruin the inauguration for him.

Oh, I am.

First we California fags and dykes were hit with the narrow passage of Proposition 8 on Nov. 4. I fully expect the California Supreme Court to strike down Prop 8 and reinstate same-sex marriage in California next year, as the same court ruled in May that the state’s Constitution mandates that same-sex marriage be legal, but as of today, same-sex couples may not legally marry in California. We don’t have equality. In only two states do we gay men, lesbians and other non-heterosexuals have equal marriage rights.

While we’re still reeling from Proposition 8 (and other anti-gay ballot measures that passed in the nation on Nov. 4), Obama picks homophobe Prick Warren to set the tone for his inauguration and he won’t back down from his incredibly poor political decision. You know, fuck “political.” This is a matter of Obama’s fucking character. He (presumably) isn’t gay, so he doesn’t give a flying fuck about gay men and lesbians.

I can’t just get over that like my co-worker can. I can’t just pretend that I don’t know what I know.

And with Barack Obama, if you are a progressive, that’s what you have to do in order to be jazzed about his impending inauguration: ignore certain things. Psychologists and pychiatrists have terms for such mental gymnastics.

Barack Obama doesn’t have my back. He no longer has mine. I regret that I gave him hundreds of dollars and I regret that I cast my vote for him. The only thing I’m glad about where he is concerned is that it wasn’t Billary Clinton who won the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, as he is the lesser of the two evils and as I doubt that Billary could have beaten Repugnican John McCainosaurus on Nov. 4. I was glad to help Obama knock Billary out of the race, but it’s been downhill with him ever since.

Yes, I suppose that there are larger issues than same-sex marriage, such as war and peace and right and wrong, and Obama is all wrong on those issues too.

The caption of the first photo above reads: “Three Palestinian children from the Balosha family, of five who were all killed in the same Israeli missile strike, are seen in the morgue before their burial at Kamal Edwan hospital in Beit Lahiya [in the] northern Gaza Strip, [on] Monday, Dec. 29, 2008.”

The Associated Press reports that the Israelis have slaughtered more than 370 Palestinians this past week in a campaign of aggression that world opinion, including the United Nations, has condemned.

Although Team Obama’s fucking mantra is that “there is only one president at a time,” Obama somehow found himself able to publicly state today that Illinois Gov. Rod “$enate $eat for $ale” Blahblahblahblah’s choice for Obama’s replacement in the U.S. Senate should not be seated because the scandalous Gov. Blahblahblahblah has zero credibility — and that Blahblahblahblah should resign. 

While it’s nice to be able to agree with Obama on something for once, Obama’s statement on the gubernatorial hijinks in his home state probably more than anything else is meant to protect his own political ass from too much tarnishment as he assumes the White House next month. Standing up for what’s right when doing so serves oneself — well, that diminishes the good deed a bit, doesn’t it?

While he can speak up on right and wrong when it helps himself, Obama remains deafeningly silent on the carnage that continues in the Gaza Strip. Because it’s not his children whom the Israelis are dropping bombs upon. Obama rather now-famously said back in July: “If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I [would] do everything in my power to stop that. And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.”

OK, fine, but the Palestinian children whose corpses are pictured above: they were dangerous members of Hamas? Obama cares about the safety of the Israelis’ daughters and his own daughters, but what about the safety of the Palestinians’ daughters?

Did Jesus Christ teach that it’s OK to pick and chose which children’s lives are valuable and which are not?

Obama is a “Christian”?

Bullshit. A Christian follows the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Barack Obama isn’t a Christian. He’s a politician. That’s his religion. He doesn’t answer to a higher power, unless you count the American Israel Public Action Committee (AIPAC) — the Israel-first lobby — as a higher power.

“Change”?

Yeah, right — keep hoping.

P.S. How are my two questions to Barack Obama doing at change.gov?

Recall that my two questions, verbatim, are:

  • I’m a gay man who gave your campaign hundreds of dollars. You have invited homophobe Rick Warren to appear at your inauguration. How about you invite Rush Limbaugh to perform “Barack the Magic Negro”? C’mon, now! In the spirit of “inclusion” and all!
  • Are you going to treat the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with SOME degree of even-handedness and fairness or are you going to kiss Israeli ass, thus further enraging the Arab world and further putting the United States at risk for terrorist attacks?

Apparently neither question has been yanked from the site (yet…), and thus far the majority who have voted like Question No. 1 by 123 votes to 91 votes, or 57 percent to 43 percent, and the majority also favor Question No. 2, by 80 votes to 59 votes, or 58 percent to 42 percent. (No, I haven’t voted for myself or asked anyone else to vote on my two questions.)

Gee. So a clear majority of Obama’s strongest supporters — those who take the time and trouble to visit his site and vote on shit — agree with me that these two issues are important and that Obama is misfuckinghandling these two issues (or at least the first one).

What if I had posed the two questions in a “nicer” way? I’d have received even stronger support from Obama’s supporters.

Will Obama listen to his supporters on these two issues?

Um, no, probably not. Prick Warren appeals to the dumbfuck vote that Obama for some reason is courting (as though eight long years of American stupidity weren’t enough), and Obama listens to his pimp$ at AIPAC, not to his supporters or to the American people, where the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is concerned.

Ask Uncle Barack!

President-elect Barack Obama’s at-least-mildly-creepy shadow-presidency website, change.gov, is taking questions!, I was informed via e-mail today.

I just submitted these two questions:

  • I’m a gay man who gave your campaign hundreds of dollars. You have invited homophobe Rick Warren to appear at your inauguration. How about you invite Rush Limbaugh to perform “Barack the Magic Negro“? C’mon, now! In the spirit of “inclusion” and all!
  • Are you going to treat the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with SOME degree of even-handedness and fairness or are you going to kiss Israeli ass, thus further enraging the Arab world and further putting the United States at risk for terrorist attacks?

There’s a character-length restriction on each question or my questions would have been longer. I’d have asked the president-elect, who calls himself a Christian, how many Arab babies Jesus would be OK with slaughtering, since the president-elect has not, to my knowledge, uttered a single fucking word about the continued carnage in occupied Palestine, but has only parroted the bullshit propaganda about Israel’s right to defend itself, even though Israelis kill far more Palestinians than vice-versa and even though world opinion is against Israel’s latest massacre of Arabs, which is made possible by the support of the United States.

P.S. Actually, even had I worded those questions “nicely,” I doubt that the president-elect’s team would touch either one.

Obama’s not about to disinvite Prick Warren to the inauguration, which has been completely ruined for me, and Obama picked Zionist-ass-licking Billary Clinton as his secretary of state. Billary has been paid big bucks by the Zionist lobby to eat Palestinian babies for lunch.

Fucking face it if you haven’t already: We’re in for another four to eight years of a milquetoast, Clintonesque “Democratic” White House administration…

P.P.S. To be fair, I just read this in a news story:

Even as the attack continued into its third day [today], with a Palestinian death toll topping 300 and Israel threatening a ground invasion, Obama had yet to say a word about the crisis, on the grounds that President George W. Bush (who has also been silent) must take the lead.

Hmmm… I suppose that I can see where Obama wouldn’t want to create confusion by making a public statement, I suppose — as he and his handlers say incessantly, the United States has only one president at a time (presidential puppeteer Dick Cheney notwithstanding…) — but it sure would be nice to know where Obama stands on these current events.

Could he not issue a disclaimer acknowledging that he has yet to take office and then make a statement? Would an audacious man of character who won’t shut up about “change” and “hope” remain silent on a humanitarian crisis like this?

P.P.P.S.: So people visiting change.gov get to vote on the questions that have been submitted.

Thus far, 85 voted that they like my first question involving Prick Warren, while 50 don’t like it. My guess is that these latter losers are Obamabots who just don’t want Obama to look bad — at all — no matter how wrong he might be. That and/or they don’t like my use of the word “Negro,” but I didn’t make up the fucking song title. (I also didn’t make up the word “Obamabot.” I can’t remember where I saw it. But I wish that I had coined it.)

Also thus far, 54 voted that they like my question about kissing Israeli ass while 40 don’t like the question, probably because of my indelicate use of the words “kiss Israeli ass,” because using the term “kiss ass” is much, much worse than, say, the mass murder that the Israelis are committing right now. We have to be “nice,” now!

Anyway, I’m just really fucking surprised that apparently neither of my two questions has been yanked from the Obamabots’ website…

Brothers and sisters, stop selling us out!

NBC/The Associated Press

I love Rachel Maddow (above); Melissa Etheridge (below), um, not so much…

Associated Press photo

So if MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is my favorite dyke* right now — and she is — then musician Melissa Etheridge is my least-favorite dyke right about now.

Etheridge wrote a surreal piece on The Huffington Post in which she wrote that Prick Warren isn’t such a bad guy after all.

Apparently Prick Warren isn’t such a bad guy because he told Etheridge that he is a fan of hers and has almost all of her CDs!

Gee! That makes the fact that he asserts that she and the rest of us gay men and lesbians should be denied our constitutionally guaranteed equal civil and human rights perfectly OK then, doesn’t it?

You know, a baby boomer is a baby boomer, and even the “good,” “liberal” baby boomers like Etheridge tend to suck ass, tend to make it all about themselves and their petty little egos, which never can be satisfied.

Etheridge asserts that Prick Warren — whom she affectionately refers to as “Pastor Rick” — ain’t so bad because he likes her work.** Her ego strokes are far more important than are the equal civil and human rights of gay men and lesbians and others who don’t fit into the heterosexist mold.

Oh, not that it’s just Etheridge’s ego strokes. She’s scheduled to attend President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration — to which you’d have to drag my dead or unconscious body — and she probably doesn’t want to see a decline in sales of her music because of the Prick Warren flap.

Thank you, Melissa Etheridge, for (probably) putting your personal finances above my equal human and civil rights. You rock — not! (In her surreally turncoat screed on The Huffington Post, Etheridge also speaks out against boycotts; she probably fears a boycott herself…)

Not just to pick on Etheridge; there are plenty of turncoats on the guys’ side. This idiot asserts that we should push for separate and unequal civil unions instead of equal marriage rights, and this retard also suggests that we raise the white flag of surrender on same-sex marriage (apparently, you see, we can’t work on global warming and human rights at the same time, and we gay men and lesbians are stupid and/or selfish for wanting our equal human and civil rights while the global warming problem still looms!).

Memo to the turncoat fucktards: We are pretty fucking close to getting same-sex marriage reinstated in the state of California. Let’s get that done, mmmmmk? Let’s not drop the pink football on this one!

No, we are not going to get same-sex marriage in all 50 states any day soon. You are correct about that.

But you are incorrect in asserting that civil unions are the way to go. Separate is not — NOT — equal. Never was, is not, and never will be.

Once we have same-sex marriage in the nation’s most populous state, other states will follow suit. That’s the way to go — not to fucking beg for fucking scraps, but to get the real deal state by state.

And we can work on more than one issue/problem at once. Not only can we work on global warming and securing same-sex marriage rights, but we can continue to work on other rights issues for non-heterosexuals as well. (Many of us gay men and lesbians have no desire to legally marry anyone, but those same-sex couples who do wish to legally marry should be able to do so. That you are a non-heterosexual who personally has no desire to marry someone of the same sex doesn’t mean that it’s OK that others may not legally marry someone of the same sex. Duh.)

Same-sex marriage is a the central front in the war for full gay and lesbian/non-heterosexual rights. The homo-haters know this, which is why they are fighting against same-sex marriage.

If we let them win, we lose.

If you don’t have the stomach for the fight, then stay the fuck out of the fight. But don’t tell the rest of us that our fully equal human and civil rights aren’t worth fighting for.

*I’m a gay man and I love my gay sisters, so I may use the term “dyke.”

**As yet another painful example of why celebrities probably don’t make the best bloggers, Etheridge actually wrote these words: “…I received a call from Pastor Rick, and before I could say anything, he told me what a fan he was. He had most of my albums from the very first one. What? This didn’t sound like a gay hater, much less a preacher….”

Um, my naive little Melissa daaahling, I’m guessing that Adolf Hitler liked music, too…

Prick Warren speaks with forked tongue

I noticed this yesterday but didn’t comment on it at the time. I should have.

In his little “news and views” (nice euphemism for “propaganda”) video for his congregants, Prick Warren tells his congregants that he absolutely never compared same-sex marriage to incestual marriage or pedophilic marriage. He stated that his comments during his interview with Beliefnet had been taken out of context, distorted.

I had thought that maybe he was telling the truth.

But then I saw the actual video clip of his interview with Beliefnet, and yeah, it’s pretty fucking inarguable that the motherfucking liar indeed compared same-sex marriage to pedophilic and incestual marriage (and to polygamy, too; for some reason he left bestiality out…).

It’s a long video on Prick Warren — almost 15 minutes long — with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, but it’s worth watching in its entirety. Maddow rocks to the extent that Prick Warren sucks ass to the point that he should just donate his organs now so that someone else can make better use of them.

Oh, and you have to see San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, in his interview with Maddow, tap dance around the fact that in San Francisco he has to be pro-gay and lesbian in order to survive politically, but President-elect Barack Obama, like Prick Warren, publicly opposes same-sex marriage and has thrown gay men and lesbians under the bus, yet Newsom has to cozy up to the president-elect, too.

In his interview Newsom doesn’t quite make it work with Maddow, who lets him off way too easily (I guess that she wanted to be able to interview him again…), and if you have a pulse you will see that Newsom has sold his soul to the Democratic Party machine — which is why when he ran for mayor in 2003 I gave his opponent, Matt Gonzalez of the Green Party, a campaign donation even though I live in Sacramento. (Despite the fact that Newsom brought in the Democratic Party machine’s biggest guns, including Billary Clinton and Al Gore, to campaign for him, despite the fact that he outspent Gonzalez by at least 4 to 1, and despite the fact that the number of San Francisco residents registered under the Green Party was less than 5 percent, Gonzalez lost to Democratic Party hack Newsom by only single digits.)

But back to Prick Warren:

That he feels the need to bold-facedly lie to his own congregants about his hateful, ignorant, bigoted comments on same-sex marriage demonstrates that increasingly, open homophobia, just like open racism, is becoming less and less socially acceptable among polite/”polite” company.

Not that someone isn’t a homophobe because he or she doesn’t make overtly homophobic remarks.* But when the haters are in an environment that is not conducive to their hate, it’s harder for their hate to thrive.

And you know what? Lying is a sin, even if you’re a stupid white male baby-boomer pastor who has made millions of dollars from “The Secret”-like bullshit books and spin-offs. (I love how baby boomers — who have nearly destroyed the nation — write self-help and advice books, because clearly they know what they’re doing and thus we should follow them. I mean, the proof is in the pudding, no?)

And if Prick Warren will lie through his fangs to his congregants about what he said on camera, what does that say about his character?

Prick Warren is one of the false prophets that the Bible warns you about.

P.S. OK, another video clip of Rachel Maddow on Prick Warren. If you don’t want to watch the full almost-15-minute video clip that I referenced above, you can watch this shorter one (it’s under three minutes) that captures Warren’s bold-faced lie using the two clips of him side by side.

And also in this clip of Maddow’s show, Warren pretty much asserts that when his opponents voice their opposition to him, it’s “hate speech,” but that everything that he and his supporters can only be construed as wuv. Fucking hypocrite.

And it’s funny (in a deeply unsettling sort of way) when wingnuts like Prick Warren talk about how much they just wuv free speech when you know that if they could silence their detractors, they wouldn’t hesitate to do so.

In the video clips of Warren that I’ve watched, it’s pretty apparent that he claims that he “loves” gay men and lesbians only because the Bible instructs that we all must love one another, and that he advocates free speech only because it’s enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Warren very apparently does not feel the spirit of love or the spirit of free speech within his being, and it’s only written codes, apparently, that stop him from expressing what’s truly in his heart, which is hatred and violence (silencing your opponents falls under violence, in my book).

I mean, if the wingnuts could alter the U.S. Constitution to strip their opponents of free-speech rights, do you think that they’d hesitate for a fucking heartbeart to do so? With Proposition 8, the wingnuts tried to strip gay men and lesbians of their equal human and civil rights guaranteed to them by the California Constitution. (The Repugnican-dominated California Supreme Court, which in May ruled that the California Constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriage, will, I surmise, strike down Proposition 8 as California’s attorney general, among others, has asked the court to do.)

Last but certainly not list, in this second video clip of Maddow’s show, Warren also uses the term “Christophobia” to describe his opponents. Let me set the lying, motherfucking false prophet straight (so to speak…) on that:

If “Christians” of Warren’s ilk actually followed the teachings of Jesus Christ, I’d love them to death. See, I’ve actually read the New Testament, and Jesus Christ says not a single fucking word on the topic of homosexuality. The “Christo”fascists pull all of their homophobic rhetoric from the Old Testament, because the Old Testament is full of ignorance and fear, and thus the “Christo”fascists gravitate to the Old Testament. (About the only thing they like about the New Testament is the Book of Revelations, which, like the Old Testament, is chock full o’ ignorance and fear, and which has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, but which was fabricated long after his death.)

Now, to me, if you are a Christian, that means that you actually follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, who taught things like love and acceptance — true love and acceptance, not the kind of “love and acceptance” in which you try to strip gay men and lesbians of their constitutionally guaranteed equal civil and human rights and/or assert that they’re (probably) going to hell — but still claim that you wuv them nonetheless.

Jesus Christ was not like a red-state fucktard (boy, that’s redundant). Jesus Christ was a flaming liberal, a progressive radical:

Che jesus.jpg

from Wikipedia.org

Jesus Christ rocked.

I’m not a “Christophobe.” I’m a pseudoprophetophobe.

I don’t hate Jesus Christ or true Christians, who are exceedingly rare. I hate false prophets like Prick Warren, who claim that when you attack them for their evil you are attacking Jesus Christ — because the Prick Warrens of the world, in their arrogance and in their blasphemy, compare themselves to God and to Jesus Christ, when, in fact, they paradoxically are about as anti-Christian as you can get.

*My maternal grandmother, who waited far too long to die, was a huge fucking racist who knew that it was politically incorrect to make overtly racist comments in “polite”/polite company. But her racist views were glaringly apparent nonetheless from her “nice” racist statements.

Prick Warren WUVS you — even though you’re going to HELL

Then U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama ...

Reuters photo

President-elect Barack Obama pals around with Pastor Rick (Prick for short) Warren at Warren’s mega-church in Orange County, Calif., in August. Warren, whom Obama has chosen to deliver the invocation at his inauguration next month, believes that the only sexual activity that is acceptable is sexual activity between a man and a woman who are married to each other for life. (He says so explicitly here. And yes, he says “for life,” which indicates that he opposes divorce and remarriage as well as homosexuality.) Gee, I had thought that the Obama Era of “hope” and “change” was going to end the Dark Ages…

Oh. My. God.

I just watched (more than once) a six-and-a-half minute video of Prick Warren — it’s a video message to his congregation that is less than a week 0ld — and he is almost as smooth as is Barack Obama. He hates fags and dykes, he makes clear in his message — it’s not difficult to read between the lines — but he tells you so oh so nicely.

Warren doesn’t hate gay men and lesbians, because he has to love everyone, he tells us — but, of course, he informs us ominously, all of us have the choice as to whether we follow God’s mandates or not. (Translation: Fags and dykes are going to hell. But he wuvs us fags and dykes. Because the Bible says he has to.)

Warren makes the rather bizarre “argument” that he has nothing against gay men and lesbians — even though he says that the only sexual activity that is acceptable is between a man and a woman who are married for life — but that gay men and lesbians just can’t use the word “marriage.” Really? Why? He’s OK with same-sex couplings (“partnerships,” he calls them) but he’s going to quibble over what we call such couplings?

Shit. I wish Warren would just call for the execution of us gay men and lesbians. It would be more direct and more honest as to what’s really in his heart. Clearly he believes that he and his brainwashed followers are going to heaven and that gay men and lesbians are going to hell. But that’s not hate ’cause he’s not a hater!

Warren reminds me of a co-worker I once had who told me that she didn’t hate gay men and lesbians — because she was no hater! — but that she fully believed that gay men and lesbians were going to suffer whatever punishments are prescribed for them in the Bible (hellfire was the punishment, I believe she asserted, but that was years ago). Actually, come to think of it, I have had (at least) two different co-workers who told me that they have nothing against gay men and lesbians but that they believe that homosexuality is a sin — no offense!

Anyway, first in the video, Prick Warren bashes the mainstream media — and bloggers — and warns his audience of churchgoers to be careful not to believe everything that they hear or read. Because only he is the purveyor of absolute truth, of course! (Kind of like how when a new weight-loss program is rolled out, the purveyors of it claim that all of the other weight-loss programs don’t work but that this one does!)

Warren also pontificates that the media love to “create” conflict and he asserts that where no conflict exists, the media will create it. What he’s really saying is that he’s as innocent and pure as the driven snow, and that all of the controversy about him in the media has been just the fabrication of conflict.

No, it’s real fucking conflict; it’s not media-created. President-elect Barack Obama is palling around with a stupid white man who opposes women’s reproductive rights and same-sex marriage rights, and we, Obama’s base, those of us who put his ass into office, have a real fucking problem with that. Our anger is quite real, fuck you very much, Prick Warren.

And Warren’s rant against bloggers sure makes it sound like he thinks that the First Amendment for the masses is a pretty bad idea.* Those American citizens who actually exercise the First Amendment — only when Warren disagrees with them, of course — should “get a life,” he proclaims. Which really means: Shut up! Only mega-churches that can afford to get their messages out — and those who agree with the mega-churches — should be allowed to excercise the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, thank you.

Yes, Prick Warren is yet another friendly fascist (and also a “compassionate conservative”?), which makes you have to wonder about Barack Obama: He wuvs us fags and dykes too, he claims, but he won’t publicly support same-sex marriage either, because while separate sure isn’t equal for him, he asserts that separate is equal for us gay men and lesbians.

*“A lot of people think that because they can sit in the quietness of their own home and hide behind the screen, they can hurl all kinds of bombs at people and get away with it,” Warren huffs in the video. That sure sounds like a thinly veiled threat to bloggers to me, but then he concludes: “Well, no, they’re just being rude.”

But gee, Prick, can we bloggers with whom you disagree “get away with it”?

A new kind of holiday dinner argument

dumprickwarren.com

Those who are still drunk on the Obama Kool-Aid see no problem with a misogynist, heterosexist assbite delivering the invocation at President-elect Barack Obama’s inaugration. Obama, you see, can do no fucking wrong — he fucking shits gold — and everything that he does is part of a Larger Plan that those of us who disagree with him just couldn’t possibly understand.

My brother and I had the traditional political argument over Christmas dinner yesterday. Only it wasn’t the traditional right-vs.-left argument; it was the progressive-vs.-pussy argument.

I have a real fucking problem with the fact that President-elect Barack Obama picked Prick — er, Rick — Warren, who opposes a woman’s right to an abortion and same-sex marriage, to give the invocation at Obama’s inauguration next month.

Obama didn’t pick Warren for his cabinet, my brother argued. Warren will make a brief appearance and then go away; why can’t I just get over that?

That was the gist of my brother’s “argument.”

True, Warren won’t be on stage for very long. But we’re not talking about exposure to radiation, in which the length of the exposure to the toxic substance is a critical factor.

And it takes no more than a few seconds to flash your middle finger to your base, to those who put you into office, to those who gave you millions and millions of dollars in contributions because your incessant fundraising e-mails promised them that if elected, you’d have their backs. And that’s what Obama is doing with his selection of Warren, who embodies the stupid white male power system, which stands for the oppression of women, of non-whites, of gay men and lesbians, of non-“Christians,” of those from other nations, et. al., et. al.

The election of Obama was supposed to herald “hope” and “change,” was supposed to be the last nail in the coffin of the stupid white male power system, yet here is Obama planning to share the inaugural stage with a stupid white man who believes that women don’t have the right to control their own uteri and who believes that same-sex couples don’t deserve equal human and civil rights, that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness do not belong to all Americans, but only to those Americans the stupid white male power system deems are worthy.

It’s a fucking problem.

Let Obama fuck us progressives before he’s even taken office and he’ll keep on fucking us. We progressives need to nip this shit in the bud — now. It’s larger than just the Prick Warren thing. We progressives need to let Obama know that if he fucks us, he’ll lose our support.

While Obama busily chases after the mushy middle — those fucktards who can’t tell the difference between good and evil and who thus easily would vote mindlessly for a Repugnican whose “folksy” propaganda sounds good (Sarah Palin-Quayle is the poster bitch for that) — he’s going to lose his base, is going to lose the support of those who made it possible for him to get where he is. (Uh, I don’t think that the mushy middle whose wuv and acceptance Obama so covets contribute very much money to presidential campaigns, since they seem to make their voting decisions within 24 hours of Election Day…)

Another thing that I had to set my brother straight on yesterday over Christmas dinner: Oh, Obama didn’t get to where he is entirely on his own. Yes, he’s smoooooth, smoother than a pre-operative anasthetic. Yes, he talks a good talk, and I’d call it his “poker face,” except that that is his face. He didn’t flinch once during the presidential debates while John McInsane came across as the addled, irritable, condescending, barely contained human volcano that he is.

But — Obama benefited enormously from the grassroots Internet revolution (including, of course, and perhaps especially, Internet fundraising) that Howard Dean’s campaign created in 2002 and/or 2003.

Obama largely just rode the wave that was created by Dean and to a much lesser extent by John Kerry. The wave under Dean and Kerry wasn’t large enough to topple the Bush regime, but the wave was only getting larger over time.

Obama had the benefit of inheriting the wave when it had finally swelled to an adequate size, of having come upon the presidential scene when the majority of the hard work of herding the progressives, which is even harder than herding cats on crack, had already been done; all that he really had to do was not fuck up in a really major way.

He’s fucking up now, though, because he’s undercutting the wave that he rode in on.

Apparently Obama has bought into Obamania himself; apparently he has forgotten, or maybe he never recognized, how much he benefited from what came before him, and maybe he believes that he got to where he is mostly or perhaps even entirely on his own.     

If he persists in this arrogance, he is in for a rude awakening.

Even the Repugnicans are smart enough to know that you don’t fuck your base after they’ve put you into office. You don’t see the Repugnicans running to the mushy middle after they’ve won office. The Repugnicans campaign as “compassionate conservatives,” but then, once in office, they reward their base by taking a hard right.

Obama campaigned as a liberal — although Team Obama claims now, of course, that he did no such thing, that we liberals only saw what we wanted to see (and if that is true — which it isn’t — the members of Team Obama certainly didn’t work very hard — did they? — to correct our erroneous view, since our money was pouring in) — and now he is reaching out to all of the haters in order to be “inclusive,” to be “a president for all Americans,” blah blah blah. There are no blue states and red states, he says. All of us Americans are the same, he says. Nevermind that there are plenty in the red states who’d love to don white robes and hang him from a tree while a burning cross illuminates the whole scene. Obama says: It’s all good!   

No, the fight right now isn’t between the left and the right, it’s between the progressives and the sell-outs, the pussies who voted for Obama but who are too timid to call Obama on his shit.

Those on the right aren’t pussy. They still claim victory even after Helen Keller plainly could see that they’ve been defeated decisively.

In stark contrast, the pussies who drank the Obama Kool-Aid still claim defeat even after they have been victorious, and they just allow their gold-shitting imperious leader to post-victoriously claim defeat on their behalf.
