Good lord, the amount of idiocy in this clip from Fox News could power all the world’s idiots for years. Mind-bogglingly moronic. Astoundingly asinine. I don’t watch Fox News very much these days, I have to admit; is it always this stunningly stupid?
Lending her analysis to the case of the man who jumped the fence and ran into the White House this weekend, Fox dunderhead Harris Faulkner burbles, “I couldn’t help but let my mind just flow to something else”… and that “something else” is… yes, wait for it…
After the gruesome murders of children and teachers by Adam Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut, apparently mostly performed with a Bushmaster AR-15 (“the civilian version of the military’s M-16 and M-4,” says the New York Times, “a logical choice for anyone whose goal is to kill a lot of people in a short time because of their ability to rapidly fire multiple high-velocity rounds”), rightbloggers were clear and united in their response: There are a lot of things that may have been the root cause of this tragedy — a lack of God, mental illness, public schools, liberals — but one thing that definitely had nothing at all to do with it was guns.
All the raving wingnuts are represented: Instapundit, Jeff Goldstein, Ace of Spades, National Review, neo-Confederate Robert Stacy McCain, and the Internet’s Dumbest Man, Jim Hoft. The leading lights of the right.
And speaking of Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds, here he is retweeting a deranged, paranoid video from conspiracy lunatic Alex Jones:

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
Sometimes I marvel at what an odd country America is, that there are actually people here who watch this repellent old fraud and truly believe he has a direct line to the Almighty — just because he says so.
An American Library Association panel discussion on Islam has been canceled, after three of the four panelists refused to participate with anti-Islam blogger Robert Spencer.
On July 7th, a group of nine members sent the ALA an open letter regarding Robert Spencer’s participation. This led to the withdrawal of Dr. Marcia Hermansen, a professor of Islamic Studies at Loyola University, neuropsychologist Dr. Alia Ammar, and Dr. Esmail Koushanpour of Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago.
Sacred PlantsFrom a strictly realpolitik point of view the problem with Spencers approach to Islam is that it is unprepared to accept the possibility of victory. At the point when the war is over, what would he do, divide Islam along ...
Good for David Horowitz; his latest column for FrontPage makes many of the same points I’ve been hammering away at since Barack Obama was elected (leading to a series of meltdowns in our comment threads, and a barrage of hate mail that shows no sign of letting up). Horowitz is on the mark when he says way too many on the right are now suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome.
I have been watching an interesting phenomenon on the Right, which is beginning to cause me concern. I am referring to the over-the-top hysteria in response to the first months in office of our new president, which distinctly reminds me of the “Bush Is Hitler” crowd on the Left.
Speaking of this crowd, have you seen any “I am so sorry” postings from that quarter as Obama continues and even escalates the former president’s war policy in Afghanistan and attempts to consolidate his military occupation of Iraq?
Conservatives, please. Let’s not duplicate the manias of the Left as we figure out how to deal with Mr. Obama. He is not exactly the anti-Christ, although a disturbing number of people on the Right are convinced he is.
I have recently received commentaries that claim that “Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history” and “never has a politician in this land had such a quasi-religious impact on so many people” and “Obama is a narcissist,” which leads the author to then compare Obama to David Koresh, Charles Manson, Stalin and Saddam Hussein. Excuse me while I blow my nose.
BethesdaDogObama really is a narcissist--but so was Bill Clinton. Many people who seek the public limelight, as politicians do, are narcissists. The best and one of the earliest articles on Obama's narcissism was written by Charles Krauthammer, who would be ...
“That’s exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it’s exactly what the Soviet Union did,” Broun said. “When he’s proposing to have a national security force that’s answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he’s showing me signs of being Marxist.” …
“We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun said. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential.”
There are plenty of reasons to question Obama’s offhanded campaign promise to create a civilian force as powerful and well-funded as the US military, but there’s really no need to Godwin ourselves out before the guy even takes office.
AUSTIN — State Board of Education member Cynthia Dunbar isn’t backing down from her claim that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is plotting with terrorists to attack the U.S.
The Texas Freedom Network, a watchdog group that monitors the board, released a public statement on Monday asking Dunbar to retract the statement.
“I don’t have anything in there that would be retractable,” said Dunbar, R-Richmond. “Those are my personal opinions and I don’t think the language is questionable.”
In a column posted on the Christian Worldview Network Web site, Dunbar wrote that a terrorist attack on America during the first six months of an Obama administration “will be a planned effort by those with whom Obama truly sympathizes to take down the America that is threat to tyranny.”
She also suggests Obama would seek to expand his power by declaring martial law throughout the country.
I propose the term “black helicopter Republicans.”
