They don’t really take holidays over at Breitbart.com; they’re in wingnut auto-rant mode 24/7, 365 days a year, and Thanksgiving is no exception. Ben Shapiro, for example, can always find time to dash off an overheated tirade about Barack Obama’s insidious socialist atheist Muslim agenda: FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR, OBAMA’S THANKSGIVING MESSAGE DOESN’T THANK GOD.
It’s pretty much the standard canned “Obama’s a sekrit atheist who hates Christians and oh yeah he’s a commie too” diatribe we’ve seen a million times from these hacks, but it’s striking to see how much hatred Shapiro can muster up for what is, in the real universe, a very warm, positive message:
Obama does mention God in this message, of course, but it’s not enough for Shapiro.
As for God, here was the only mention — as a throwaway line in a hackneyed aphorism, used constantly by this president for communitarian sloganeering:
As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work — not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.
No mention of thanking God. None.
But, of course, we’re used to this. In 2011, there was no mention of God at all. In 2010, Obama was closer, but still missed the mark (‘we’ll spend some time taking stock of what we’re thankful for: the God-given bounty of America, and the blessings of one another’). In 2009, Obama didn’t thank God, either.
These people are so weird. When did Thanksgiving become a holy day of obligation?
And the comments are exactly what you’d expect, following Ben Shapiro’s lead:
That’s because Obama is the most EVIL and corrupt President that the United States has ever had…
this is due to his believe in alley or whatever that false prophet’s name is that muslims worship
ITS A MUSLIM THING?
Haven’t you been listening? This is no longer a country Blessed by God. That ended with the election of a Muslim to the seat of Commander in Chief.
“Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation…” - Barack Hussein Obama
“There is no god but Allah” - the engraving on Obama’s “wedding” ring. The same one he has worn on that same finger since his days at Occidental.
Satan himself appears as an angel of light and behind the Obama’s mask lies a heart overflowing with evil, greed, hatred, and genocide.
Obama’s god is Marx
The Usurp is an Al-Qaeda sleeper.
How can a divisive, inept, mean spirited, disingenuous, narcissistic brat thank God when he considers himself to be a god? There is no room within the pea sized obummer brain for anyone or anything else other than the won.
This is proof positive that Obama’s religion is Marxism. Period.
Muslims are just that way
Why would he thank God when he embraces Allah via his wedding band? According to our Commander in Chief, “There is no God but Allah!”
It is because he doesn’t worship the God of the Bible but another god. I would once have said it is the god of the Koran but now I suspect it is the Image of the Beast that greets him in the mirror every morning.
I’d bet that Baracky faced Mecca, knelled, and prayed five times to allah! /Sarc
The pedophile cult of hatred, violence, rape, murder, beheading, enslaving and terrorism. Islam , the Satan worshipers of the world.
He’s a marxist muslim SHILL God plays NO role in this FORKED TONGUED, SNAKE OIL SALESMANS world He’s the DEVIL INCARNATE
Liberal and Christian members withdrew from the assembly during the past week to protest what they say is the hijacking of the process by Morsi’s allies, who they saw are trying to push through a document that will have an Islamist slant marginalizing women and minority Christians and infringing on personal liberties. Several courts have been looking into cases demanding the dissolution of the panel.
The Egyptian leader also decreed that all decisions he has made since taking office in June and until a new constitution is adopted and a new parliament is elected — which is not expected before next spring — are not subject to appeal in court or by any other authority. He also barred any court from dissolving the Islamist-led upper house of parliament, a largely toothless body that has also faced court cases.
The moves effectively remove any oversight on Morsi, the longtime Muslim Brotherhood figure who became Egypt’s first freely elected president last summer after the Feb. 11, 2011 fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak. They come as Morsi is riding high on lavish praise from President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for mediating an end to eight days of fighting between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers.
Tuesday I had to go over to Newark to visit a client to provide training for the new CMS (content management system) we installed for their website. The visit was uneventful. I wrapped things up and left, then called for a taxi and went outside to wait for it. The neighborhood isn’t a terribly rough one (at least not by East Coast standards), but it’s adjacent to a somewhat ghetto-ish one.
So I was sitting on one of those big tree planters futzing around with the camera on my new iPod and must’ve missed my cell phone slipping out of the side pocket of my purse. I got home, settled back down in front of my computer, and got back to work, never realizing that my phone was missing.
A couple of hours later my land line rang. I didn’t even look at the Caller ID. The man on the other end said he had no idea who he was calling, but he’d found a cell phone over by [redacted] and since my number was in it he thought I might be able to tell him who it belonged to because he’d like to return it.
I told him that I most certainly did know who it belonged to—me!—then I told him how I thought I’d lost it. I thanked him for his honesty and told him that it was always heartening to to be reminded how many good people there still are in the world. That did it—all of a sudden he got all choked up, told me he was “just trying to please the Lord”, and then began telling me his story.

I need to post this since I propagated the original Der Spiegle story here. This debunks the "European" linkage headlined in the story. All of the genes are Asian / Siberian in origin. H/T to Freetoken who pointed out the shoddy reporting back then in the comments. It appears that the usual Solutrean Hypothesis / Solutrean Truther crowd at work, and underneath it all ...
While female pleasure in music is nothing new, the shift that has appeared is largely based around an absence of the man: take for example Janet Jackson's Take Care, where she sings: "I'll lay here and take care of it 'til you come home to me." For Jackson, masturbation is a bookmark. The Divinyls' I Touch Myself - a pro-masturbation anthem if ever ...
In a new article at Matt Barber's new site, Barbwire, the author wants everyone to know that Evangelical Christians are the most persecuted people on earth, because SATAN IS EVERYWHERE! From the beginning of time, Satan and the other fallen angels (demons) have made war against the Lord and His creation. It is their sole mission to steal, kill and destroy what God has ...
Russia has been preparing for this contingency for years - which comes as a surprise to no one who had been following the situation closely. While there have been howls from corners of Congress that the US intelligence community failed to see this coming, Russian contingency planning over Crimea has been known to the US government for at least seven years. A Dec. ...
When I saw this post over at Wonkette, I thought I just had to show Charles Johnson and Gus. I just wonder if and when they'll make a Greenwald action figure. Are you a grown-ass person that still likes to play with toys and pretend you are someone else? We really wish we could stop you from doing that. But since we can't, why ...

In an era when we've all got GPS in our pockets, OnStar in our cars and the NSA tracking anyone, anywhere, it is still possible-although rare-for an airliner to seemingly vanish. That appears to be what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared about an hour after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing on Friday night. As of Monday, search and rescue teams ...
It certainly made for a startling video: police, lights ablaze, pull up to local churches. Once inside, they march up to the pulpit and place the pastor preaching there under arrest, in front of the congregation. The men of the cloth are perp-walked out of the church with handcuffs on. This very scenario created a brief uproar - first at the Akron, Ohio, ...
Malaysia's military believes it tracked a missing jetliner by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a military source told Reuters. In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER, now in its fourth day, ...
Add another male lawmaker to the list of those who've made an eyebrow-raising rape comment. Missouri state Sen. David Sater (R) is sponsoring Senate Bill 519, which would amend the current waiting period to have an abortion from 24 hours to 72 hours. Left out of that bill is an emergency exception for cases of rape. "If a woman decides not to go ...
We need to care about this. Not only because it's the decent humanitarian thing to do, but also because these children are the future of Syria. If they're inured to the brutalities of war and permanently psychologically damaged, then it doesn't bode well for the entire area, which is extremely geopolitically important. Imagine if this was 5.5 million American children. Now stop and ...

Launched in 1912, the Girl Scouts of the USA started as a single pack of girls in Savannah, Georgia, meeting in the hopes of getting out of their "isolated home environments and into community service and the open air." Founder Juliette Gordon Low, an artist and athlete, saw her personal mission in launching the troop as "to go on with my heart and ...
Zimmerman has been doing everything that he can think of to build on the infamy that he gained from killing Trayvon Martin. Public outrage forced the cancelation of the celebrity boxing match that Zimmerman was scheduled to participate in. Almost no one showed up at his autograph signing. The message being sent is clear. Society is not going to let George Zimmerman build ...
Earlier today, Lawhawk noted that Adorama was having a contest where you're to enter your best image from last year. Since the voting is Facebook "Likes" based, my taste in photography has a snowballs chance at the devil's prom ;) But on the other hand, as it has been noted, you can not win if you do not play the game. So after sorting ...
An amazing historic fortune to be had Ship Model, note the old pre propeller side wheel propulsion design. It carried one of the largest cargoes of gold ever lost at sea, so much so that it was nicknamed the "Ship of Gold." And now Odyssey Marine Exploration has been given court approval to recover what it can from the SS Central America. In 1857, ...

Alas, our next generation of conservative leaders are not chanting, "Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!" They are, instead, chanting, "F**k O-bama! F**k O-bama!" And I hang my head.
