Come on, Washington Post, what are you doing? This latest propaganda blog post by Jennifer Rubin is just a disgrace: Why Was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?
Rubin’s brain-dead right wing talking point of the day has a simple answer: because she was invited by the Academy to present the Best Picture award. There. Was that so hard?
Oh wait … we’re still angry?
It is not enough that President Obama pops up at every sporting event in the nation. Now the first lady feels entitled, with military personnel as props, to intrude on other forms of entertaining (this time for the benefit of the Hollywood glitterati who so lavishly paid for her husband’s election). I’m sure the left will holler that once again conservatives are being grouchy and have it in for the Obamas. Seriously, if they really had their president’s interests at heart, they’d steer away from encouraging these celebrity appearances. It makes both the president and the first lady seem small and grasping. In this case, it was just downright weird.
There’s something weird here, all right — the weird wingnut thought process that leads to seriously messed up sentences like these.
Get a life, Jennifer Rubin.
(Read the comments for this disgraceful article for some pretty pointed mockery and criticism of Rubin’s clumsy agitprop.)
Washington Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton struggles with the issue: Is the Post ‘Pro-Gay’?
Apparently, the Post has been getting emails from conservatives complaining that their anti-gay viewpoints are being marginalized. They’re not happy about it. Hating gay people is a core conservative value, and why doesn’t the Post understand that?
Pexton concludes that they have a point, and the Post needs to try harder to understand.
Still, just as I have written that The Post should do a better job of covering and understanding the anti-abortion movement, The Post should do a better job of understanding and conveying to readers, with detachment and objectivity, the beliefs and the fears of social conservatives.
I’m actually in favor of this, because if more people see what the gay-hating reactionary “social conservatives” really believe and fear, it will only serve to hasten their rejection by the rest of society.
For example, here’s Matt Barber, the quintessential social conservative, in the far right conspiracy journal World Net Daily with An Open Letter to ‘Gay’ Teens, helpfully explaining that they’re not gay, they’re sinners. And they’re doomed to burn in hell forever unless they repent.
I’ve had many people ask me what I’d say to my children if one of them came to me and declared: “Dad, I’m gay.”
Here’s what I’d say. I’d tell them exactly what I’m about to tell you.
I love you. I neither judge you nor condemn you. I accept you and I would die for you.
But you are not “gay.”
Yes, you may be physically attracted to people of the same sex, but how you act on those attractions is entirely your choice. Who you are - your identity - is not defined by your sexual feelings, temptations or behaviors. The difference between who you are and what you feel or do is as the difference between night and day.
But you are flawed - you are a sinner. …
Homosexual behavior is always wrong - demonstrably and absolutely wrong.
In fact, homosexual sin is expressly identified in both the Old and New Testaments as being among the list of sins that, if committed without repentance, will prevent you from “inheriting the kingdom of God.”
That is to say, yes; unrepentant homosexual behavior is disobedience to God. If we rebel against God and refuse to repent and ask His forgiveness, then we have chosen our own fate - we have chosen to disqualify ourselves from heaven.
We have chosen hell.
That’s what Matt Barber would say to his own son.
Yes, by all means, let’s really try hard to “understand” what’s going on in this religious fanatic’s head.
Michelle Obama gave away the Best Picture award at last night’s Oscar telecast, and would you be surprised to learn that this has driven the wingnut keyboard commandos into fits of extreme racist rage? No? Me neither.
The right wing base is absolutely demented with dim-witted anger at Michelle Obama, ranting uncontrollably today at every single right wing website. They have a special hatred for the First Lady, so over the top it sometimes seems like a parody — but of course it isn’t.
I’ll just pick a few representative comments from two right wing sites. The references to “Star Wars” are their clever way of comparing Mrs. Obama to a Wookie. It’s one of their favorite racial slurs.
At Fox Nation:
At least Moochell is crashing the oscars now… Probably not as much fun as crashing through the forest and terrorizing tent campers.
Narcissists? Somewhere in the WH, the president has locked himself in a bathroom with a bottle of astroglide, a zucchini, and his press photos.
I wonder how many favors Barry had to call in to get that mule on stage.
Bought and paid for political plantation hor…
the First Wookie is with out a doubt and embarrassment to the nation, she has never held a real job, earned a dime herself or cares about this country, do not be surprised when George and Weezy are out of the White House she drops Barack quickly and gets her a NBA star.
The Obamas are like ill-bred ghettø kids who just won the lottery. Spendthrift, vulgar, irresponsible, and utterly filled with arrogant delusions of their own self-importance.
Ugh. I would sooner French kiss an Óràngután.
Good for Michelle. This is the least masculine she’s looked in years, and that mop of a haircut really makes her aboriginal good looks shine. Lucky, lucky Barry.
Like a prom dress on a mule.
this racist is sickening. she has no problem spending tax payers money. thank you skin, food stamp voters for the no class Whitehouse.
Reminds us very much of Marie Antoinette.
At Hot Air:
Barf-o-Rama. And even in an updo the bangs make her look like Rick James.
Some country will make Obama king after he destroys Amerika.
What a hideous beast! What’s happened to our country? Is this some kind of freak-show or what- like Divinity eating poo off the sidewalk in that John Waters flick. My worst nightmare is a dream compared to this. Would someone please open the gates and let me out already?
Scientific studies show that animals are often attracted to shiny objects. just saying’.
I think Michelle has no intention of being an ex-monarch. This is all about her running for Senate and then president. After all, the transformation to socialism is not yet complete! Women like her and Hillary cannot stand to have their husbands accomplish more than they do.
I think The Onion had the wrong person.
Hey skank, half the country hates you. Go away. Tired of having to windex my TV everytime you muck it up.
Dr. Zira presented last night?
My proud ownership of male genitalia precludes the possibility of viewing Hollywood self-adorations. Apparently, this policy has spared me a di**-shrivelling moment.
Was there a tribute to Star Wars that I missed?
“All this for a flag?” -Mooch Obama
As happy as seeing Barak Obama murdered would make me, I think Id be happier if someone put a bullet in that fat pig of a wife.
That last comment above has now been deleted at Hot Air, and the rest of the commenters are accusing me of faking it (predictably) and spewing hatred at me.
That quote was nowhere to be found on Hot Air until you posted it now.
You and Charles Johnson are dirty liars.
I just went on LGF and planted an a$sassination remark about Ted Cruz. Hurry, Allah, and link it to smear them before they take it down.
Latrine rats, eat the slush you dwell in.
Charles Johnson got his first, of what would be, chronic yeast infections.
Googling this Machismo fellow’s previous Hot Air comments makes me think he was really a Kos Kiddie posing as a conservative. His comments were all incredibly over-the-top, like a caricature of a parody of a conservative.
