Breitbart’s Obamacare Expert: the GOPer Who Thinks Evolution and Embryology Are “Lies From the Pit of Hell”
Today at the increasingly unhinged right wing propaganda site that Andrew Breitbart built, they have a new “expert” on health care, with an EXCLUSIVE breaking news report: EXCLUSIVE: STOP WASTING TIME TRYING TO FIX OBAMACARE!!!
This exclusive opinion on health care and medical science is the work of Republican Representative from Georgia Paul Broun — who believes that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang are “all lies straight from the pit of Hell.”
From Rep. Paul Broun’s (R-GA) remarks at the Liberty Baptist Church Sportsman’s Banquet on September 27, 2012, in Hartwell, Georgia:
BROUN: God’s word is true. I’ve come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don’t believe that the Earth’s but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That’s what the Bible says.
And what I’ve come to learn is that it’s the manufacturer’s handbook, is what I call it. It teaches us how to run our lives individually, how to run our families, how to run our churches. But it teaches us how to run all of public policy and everything in society. And that’s the reason as your congressman I hold the Holy Bible as being the major directions to me of how I vote in Washington, D.C., and I’ll continue to do that.
The perfect man to advise the nation on health care!
Now speaking at the craziest far right conference of them all, the Values Voter Summit: none other than raving freakazoid nut sandwich Glenn Beck. Of course! How else would you end an event like this?
And yes — he brought a chalkboard! He’s naked without it. And he just made the inevitable joke that it isn’t a blackboard — “You raaaaacist!” (Said in his goofy “liberal” voice.)

The Incredibly Strange Far Right Truckers Who Plan to Block Traffic, Impeach Obama and Arrest Congressmen
Yes, the Fox News audience has woken up, climbed out of their La-Z-Boys and into their 18-wheelers, and now they’re preparing to be a giant pain in the tarmac with a huge Convoy of Impeachment: ‘Truckers for the Constitution’ Plan to Slow D.C. Beltway, Arrest Congressmen.
Zeeda Andrews, a former country music singer helping promote the protest, said last week participants would present demands to congressmen - including the impeachment of President Barack Obama - and give the congressmen an opportunity to agree to the demands in exchange for canceling the ride.
But Conlon says that’s not quite right.
“We are not going to ask for impeachment,” Conlon said. “We are coming whether they like it or not. We’re not asking for impeachment, we’re asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office.”
Conlon cited the idea of a citizens grand jury - meaning a pool of jurors convened without court approval - as the mechanism for indicting the officials.
“We want these people arrested, and we’re coming in with the grand jury to do it,” he said. “We are going to ask the law enforcement to uphold their constitutional oath and make these arrests. If they refuse to do it, by the power of the people of the United States and the people’s grand jury, they don’t want to do it, we will. … We the people will find a way.”
But alas, it is a hoax. They were just funnin’ with you liberals.
The first of our two most ridiculous phony outrages is a meme being circulated on Facebook; LGF contributor Gus tweeted about it yesterday, with the laughably awful photoshopped image that’s got the wingnuts in a tizzy:
Wow, that’s really spiteful! How dare he?!
Pretty crazed, you’ll have to admit. But our second most ridiculous fake outrage is nearly as stupid and phony, as breitbart.com propagandist Mike Flynn wants his gullible audience to believe that Spiteful Obama is actually trying to close the ocean. That’s just how spiteful he is! And just to drive home the sheer spitefulness of that monster, he illustrates his ludicrous post with a photo of Obama… body-surfing! In the ocean! The bastard!
This is governing by temper-tantrum. It is on par with the government’s ham-fisted attempts to close the DC WWII Memorial, an open-air public monument that is normally accessible 24 hours a day. By accessible I mean, you walk up to it. When you have finished reflecting, you then walk away from it.
At least that Memorial is an actual structure, with some kind of perimeter that can be fenced off. Florida Bay is the ocean. How, pray tell, do you “close” 1,100 square miles of ocean? Why would one even need to do so?
Apparently, according to an anonymous Park Service ranger, “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
Centuries ago, King Canute famously failed to command the ocean tide to stop. His display was actually a means to educate his subjects on the limits of royal power. Today, however, our President actually believes he has the power to control the oceans.
That’s so incredibly loony, I find it amazing he could even type it without collapsing into hysterics at his own crack-brained derangement.
And of course, you realize it’s complete bullshit, right? Here’s the article this lurid paranoid post is drawn from: Shutdown Day 3: Food Distributor Stalled, Charter Boat Captains Docked - Business - MiamiHerald.com.
Charter guides received a message from the National Park Service this week informing them that they are not permitted to take clients fishing in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits between the southern tip of the mainland to the Keys until further notice.
The closing affects not only fishing guides, but anyone with a license to conduct business in the park, including tour operators and paddling guides — anyone with a Commercial Use Authorization permit, said Dan Kimball, superintendent of Everglades and Dry Tortugas national parks.
That’s right, the closure affects people with licenses to use park property, and like many services affected by the shutdown, the government can’t pay the people who administer and enforce the regulations — so access needs to be suspended.
In the Breitbart fever swamp, this turns into “OBAMA SEEKS TO CONTROL THE VERY OCEANS!” Good grief.
Oh… and that quote from an “anonymous Park Service ranger,” saying “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting?” It’s being passed around as gospel truth on every right wing blog and media site — but it originated with Washington Times weirdo Wesley Pruden. Which means it was probably made up out of thin air.
Right wing journalism at its finest!
