At Michelle Malkin’s fake news site Twitchy.com, they’re definitively refuting the liberals who claim that Google doesn’t post Doodles with religious themes, by helpfully posting previous Google Doodles featuring religious themes: Google Defenders: Google Doesn’t Post Doodles for Religious Holidays | Twitchy.
The religious themes featured previously by Google include: Santa Claus, chimneys, elves, toys, choo-choo trains, snowflakes and snowmen.
As we noted yesterday, the Twitter topic started by First Lady Michelle Obama to discuss her fitness campaigns, #AskFLOTUS, was absolutely swarmed by conservatives tweeting horrifically hateful, sexist and racist “questions.”
The depth of the contempt and hatred would be shocking, except that it’s so incredibly common on the right. As we’ve documented many times, whenever an article about Michelle Obama appears at a right wing site, it provokes a deluge of vile comments.
One of the contributing factors to this disgusting mass hatred phenomenon is the tacit (and sometimes not so tacit) encouragement of this behavior by the right wing media.
At two very popular right wing propaganda websites today, we find an orgy of back-slapping and gloating over their “hijack” of the #AskFLOTUS topic; Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy.com and Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze.com:
The comments at the Twitchy site are just chock full of racism and hatred, of course. But one of them caught my eye as a perfect candidate for the Wingnut Free Verse of the Day:
some uppity journalist might
about some of these questions
from her Happy Warriors
Flotus Mooche will
probably have her
$ 100,000/yr Royal Court Calligraphers
pen a pretty note and send it to Kim IL Duh
to let his malnourished NK children eat cake or lobster.
That ought to get our truce back in effect,
John “Gigolo” Kerry,
we all have a Right to act
just like Bozo did
when he blamed the Cambridge Police
his resistant prof. pal,
The White House created a hashtag #askFLOTUS for citizens to tweet their concerns about childhood obesity to the First Lady. Almost immediately it was overwhelmed with hate tweets from the usual gang of idiots.

More right wing hate tweets in comments below…
Michelle Malkin’s propaganda site Twitchy.com takes credit for sending these right wing haters after the First Lady and “hijacking” the hashtag: Boom! #AskFLOTUS Hashtag Hijack: Michelle Obama Asks for Questions; Happy Warriors Deliver | Twitchy.
Today we find the conservative movement on Twitter happily making thousands and thousands of puerile, disgusting jokes about rape, in the #LiberalTips2AvoidRape hashtag.
You’re supposed to think it’s clever commentary on liberal hypocrisy, because those damned liberals are trying to take away the guns women need to kill their rapists. Therefore, the best way to comment on this is with a nauseating deluge of ugly, woman-hating tweets.
I won’t bother copying any of this vile stuff; click the link above if you want to see the dark heart of the conservative movement in all its repulsive glory.
Pushing the right wingers to let their hair down and let the hatred flow: the appropriately titled Twitchy.com, because that’s the site’s entire purpose: Lefties Freak Over LiberalTips2AvoidRape Hashtag, Silent on Dems Who Want Women Defenseless | Twitchy.
These huge conservative derp-fests, where thousands of them all start trying to outdo each other for the most thuggish hateful “humor” they can dream up in their fevered brains, have absolutely no parallel in liberal circles.
There’s something deeply, deeply wrong with a community of people that encourages and enables this kind of nastiness. And they do it while professing to be hyper-religious and super-moral, which makes it even worse.
Twitchy.com, the site owned by Michelle “Internment Camps” Malkin, has hit on a winning formula with the right wing base — just copy their nastiest and most logic-deprived tweets from Twitter, repost them with equally nasty and logic-deprived one-liners, insert some advertisements, and bam, you have a website that’s sure to please the knuckle-draggers’ contingent. Tonight’s example is yet another dose of pure unvarnished hatred for Barack Obama, which is mostly what Twitchy.com sells.
This is the tweet that sets off the hatefest, a photo posted by the White House on the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ famous bus ride:
Today is the 57th Anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Pic: President Obama on Rosa Parks bus twitter.com/whitehouse/sta…
— The White House (@whitehouse) December 1, 2012
In the bizarre echo chamber of the right, this photo is just more evidence that President Obama is an out of control malignant narcissist: Narcissist in Chief: President Obama Honors Rosa Parks Anniversary With Picture of Himself; Update: Adam Baldwin With the Win.
The commentary on this image, from “Twitchy Staff:”
Just when you think President Obama’s impossibly large ego can’t grow further, he makes it happen!
President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image.
And the narcissism continues: To honor the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, President Obama paid homage with a picture of himself.
Yes, how dare the first black President of the US think he might be important. How much more uppity could a first black President be?
This is followed by several tweets from right wingers hurling insults at Obama, concluding with this one from Adam Baldwin (that the “Twitchy Staff” thinks is a “win”):
— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) December 2, 2012
Wingnut humor is a sad, miserable, vindictive thing, full of fear and loathing. Twitchy commenters agree:
I don’t generally hate people, but I really do hate this man.
Is there really no end to that Pryck??
Why didn’t he dress in drag?? Bright RED lipstick would suit o’blamo to a T
I don’t hate him … its more a deep loathing, sizzling away on the front burner, with the gas turned all the way up. I don’t know him personally, therefore it hard for me to equate my feelings with regard to BHO to hate. I do hate what he, and the rest of the career kleptocrats are doing to this Nation.
Yeah…half white, half black….who cares? We care that he’s ALL Communist…
Hate, loathe and despise are just the tip of the iceberg of how I feel about him.
I’ve said before, I’ve enjoyed a whole life without feeling hate toward anyone…and then this man came along. Now I know what it feels like to hate.
There’s more in this vein, of course; a lot more, some of it openly racist. These are the people who consume what Twitchy.com is selling.
There goes that Chris Rock again, rattling the right wing’s cage:
Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks
— Chris Rock (@chrisrock) July 4, 2012
Well, you know that the incredibly patriotic keyboard commandos of the wingnutosphere weren’t going to take that lying down. Nobody talks trash about the Fourth!
Michelle Malkin’s fake news site Twitchy.com did their now-familiar schtick, digging through random comments on Twitter and clutching their pearls over each horrible one of them: Shameful: Aaron Sorkin, Left Celebrate Independence Day by Slamming America; Update: Chris Rock Joins In: ‘Happy White Peoples Independence Day’; Don Cheadle Laughs Along; Zach Braff Piles on.
It’s fun to just pick out the borderline illiterate Twitchy editorial comments from their cut-and-paste jobs:
Unbelievable. Yet, totally believable since it is so predictable. As always, members of the bitter and hateful Left jump at the chance to slam the country that provides them the opportunity and freedom to spew their hatred.
They will have a lot of unfollowing to do today, sadly.
Non-Americans join in the bashing. But, hey, let’s totally appease those who hate us, right? Citizens of the world and all.
Sadly, it’s not just people from other countries. Americans enjoying the freedom that this country, a beacon of light to world, provides decide to “celebrate” with hate as well.
They are all following the lead of the contemptible Aaron Sorkin. Of course, he has no problem earning millions and enjoying the lifestyle he could only have in suck-y America.
These citizens decide to provide a little lesson for the haters.
And this Twitter user sums it up in a nutshell.
It’s okay, pitiful Left. Keep hating; you have the freedom to do so in America, you see. Try doing that anywhere else. Those of us who aren’t hate-filled and delusional will keep loving our country and cherishing the freedom provided by this great nation.
Update: Chris Rock joins in the slamming.
Some lessons for Mr. Rock.
Truth is hard.
Update: Actor Don Cheadle finds Rock’s tweet absolutely guffaw-worthy.
Update: Actor Zach Braff wants in on the action:
Happy “Independence to Rip Off Other Celebrities’ Tweets” Day, Zach!
The comments from Twitchy readers are exactly what you’d expect — they’re calling Chris Rock a racist over and over and over, telling him to go back to Africa, telling him to go to Cuba, calling him ugly, saying he wants to turn America into “Rhodesia” and kick out white people, and saying he wants to replace all the white Christian holidays with black socialist ones.
And another race-baiting festival of right wing butthurt is going on at Breitbart.com: Chris Rock Wishes Us ‘Happy White Peoples Independence Day’.
Still carrying a grudge against a country that has made Chris Rock wealthy and famous way beyond where his waning talents should’ve taken him, this was how the once-interesting and once-edgy comedian celebrated the 4th of July on Twitter today…
To divisive racialists like Rock, nothing will ever be enough. Not a Civil War, not electing a black president, not making “Head of State” a modest hit.
There is, however, a special day coming up I think we can ALL enjoy, and that’s March 15, the one-year anniversary of the big, tough, bad ass Chris Rock attacking a woman.
All for having the sheer liberal audacity to mention that when the Declaration of Independence was adopted, this country was a slave-holding country. In other words, the truth.
Twitchy.com, Michelle Malkin’s fake right wing news site, has developed a great formula for firing up the wingnut blogosphere: they search Twitter for random nasty comments about conservatives, then label the tweeters “libs” and repost the tweets, leading to a right wing pile-on and rage-gasm.
Tonight, liberal Twitter users are openly advocating the assassination of Gov. Scott Walker…
They certainly did find some death threats, which, as anyone who uses Twitter knows, is about as unusual as sand on a beach. Oddly enough, almost all of the people singled out by Twitchy.com are African Americans.
What makes these tweeters “liberal,” though? I clicked through to some of their profiles and checked out their tweets, and found no real evidence that they’re “libs” or involved in liberal politics — but plenty of evidence that the people who post death threats also post lots of other freaky, nasty comments. Which is, you know, a big shock, if you’re from Twitchy.com.
Twitchy’s latest exercise in paranoia was immediately parroted in unison by many right wing blogs, because that’s how they roll. The most ludicrous of these comes from Breitbart.com editor John Nolte: ‘KILL SCOTT WALKER’: LEFT UNLEASHES DEATH THREATS.
Nolte finds a way to bring President Obama into it, of course:
We all know that the same president who intentionally ignited a racial firestorm around the shooting of Trayvon Martin by a Hispanic Democrat will never call for calm here, so let’s pray that Governor Walker, Lt. Governor Kleefisch, and those around them, take these threats seriously.
If past is prologue, these threats are no laughing matter.
If past is prologue, John Nolte is the last person who should be condemning others for death threats. See:
Of course, it’s not unusual at all to see death threats and calls for violence in the comments at Breitbart.com, and the people who post this garbage are definitely right wingers. For just a few examples:
Meanwhile, the comments from right wingers on Twitchy.com’s own post about horrible “liberal death threats” are chock full of rage, overt racism, violent fantasies, and eliminationist rhetoric. A few examples (h/t: iceweasel):
bisquitbrain: It’s been going on longer than most on this blog have been alive. Nobody would believe you 25 years ago that it was a rapidly growing problem. Now it’s full grown and like a weed it will spring back up every time you whack it off. The roots must be dug out. That will take thirty years at the common rate of birth and death if 100% eradication is begun and that’s not possible without civil war.
How right you are - things will go wild when Obama is defeated - let’s make the defeat happen - it will get hot and I hope hot enough to cleanse this nation.
I worry about Mitt. I would not want to be the guy who beats BO. I remember when my kids were little, they were the most cranky before their nap. I think the unions and thugs are going to need a nap.
Yes, a dirt nap.
Some call it a riot. I like to refer to it as a ‘target rich environment.’
You are so right, Art. Two years ago I purchased a Sprinfield .40 cal. and my CHL, just in case. I hope to never need it but I certainly will if I have to. As the kids today would say…”Don’t start nothin’, won’t be nothin’.”
cbpelto: do not attend ANY gunfight with a handgun at all. Best is an AR-15 or an AK47 or AK74..keep the hand gun on you for a last resort option, only if your primary semi auto rifle fails
Hardwurkindaddy: Stay locked and loaded my friend. Myself, i have a few things they would have to dodge if they come at my family and I, german shepherds are known for going straight for the throats and I have 2 very big ones. 1/2 my family carries(the others are to young to carry) and these punks would have a little bit of a war on their hands should they come after us.
Touch any conservative with harm, and trust it will be the very last thing you ignorant liberal free loaders will ever do in this plain of existence.
Your disgusting, human imitating, mind swelling viral infections. Our patience and tolerance does indeed have a limit and you vile sore losing homonids are fastly approaching that limit. As we tire of your racist hypocrisies and your inability to think seperate of the dark princes collective.
Your just souless copies of what looks to be human but are actually just reused reprinted doubles on Charlie Rangels stationary.
Karma is a b!%ch and all of you libby reprints will be consumed and crushed by your own vile stank.
Purge liberalism now and forever. Pigs!!
Has anybody noticed the pictures of these douchebags tweeting the threats? Wonder where our welfare is being spent?
Diversity is our strength .. yeah .. sure. The bloody simians can’t even speak English yet they live in the United States. I am so sick of negrish.
These apes will go nowhere in life but prison…and by the look of it, prison life starts next week for the ‘groid.
LoL. good riddance.
Folks, when Zimmerman is acquitted or hung jury ‘Obama’s sons’ will riot. Be prepared to protect your neighborhoods! Form citizen defense squads and practice.
Don’t be the scared cracker that is dragged out your car and savaged by the feral animals called Obama voters!
You notice that most of these brainless morons are Obama supporters? The race war has started folks. Arm yourself legally and be prepared to take the scum out when they come to take you out. It is better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
There will be killing squads…if these Democratic party whores think their family will be safe after ‘killing’ an elected official then their entire family doesn’t deserve to live anyway. The entire nest has to be cleaned out.
After all…most are government uneducated useful idiots.
BUY AMMO. Protect your family from them.
Remember, they are ANIMALS first and only through proper family socialization do they become HUMAN.
For several weeks on Twitter, the wingnut army has been staging a massive freak-out about a strange persecution fantasy; they imagine that they’re being sent to a “Twitter Gulag” by a conspiracy of left wing activists, who somehow control Twitter with their diabolical liberal super-powers.
What’s really happening is that sites like Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy.com are organizing and openly calling for right wingers to spam liberals on Twitter, with abusive tweets and lame-brained insults. They even call it “hijacking,” in a rare outbreak of honesty. For example: Hijack Alert: Describe Obama in Three Words Takes Off | Twitchy.
Obviously, their stupid and/or nasty comments are offending people, who then presumably use Twitter’s “Block and Report” feature to complain to Twitter support — and as a result, abusive right wingers’ accounts get suspended. This is what they’re whining about with their absurd self-pitying “Twitter Gulag” nonsense. The same people ordering wingnuts to harass and spam liberals on Twitter then turn around and scream like colicky babies when accounts are suspended because of harassment and spam.
It’s a self-perpetuating fake outrage of huge proportions.
To point this out, last night I tweeted:
Here’s an idea! If right wingers don’t want their Twitter accounts suspended, maybe they shouldn’t do stuff like this: lgf.bz/LVXjes
