Right Wing Bloggers Desperate to Blame Germanwings Crash on Muslims

Wingnuts • Views: 3,222

By now everyone’s heard about the reports that a French prosecutor has alleged that copilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed a Germanwings A320 into an alpine mountain late Tuesday. Key word, of course, being “alleged,” because nothing has been determined for certain yet.

But that doesn’t stop the Stupidest Man on the Internet, the inestimable Jim Hoft, from screaming: PHOTO—- the Copilot Who Murdered 149 People on a Germanwings Airbus A320 | the Gateway Pundit.

DERPPhotos were released today of the copilot who murdered 149 people on a Germanwings Airbus A320.

The copilot would not let the pilot back into the cockpit after he left to use the restroom.

28-year-old German Andreas Lubitz trained in the [sic] Phoenix, Arizona and is pictured here in San Francisco.

Somehow Hoft managed to refrain from automatically blaming the crash on Muslims, as he normally would — probably because he knew his knuckle-dragging readers would do it for him. And they responded like Pavlov’s dogs:

News of recent conversion to Islam in 3…2…


the PC crowd will never ‘reveal’ his true ‘ties’


another pilot “…trained in the US.” —
but- this was not a terrorist- attack -
islam is a religion of peace-


Andreas Lubitz, peace be upon him, is no more Islamic than the Sharpton is hustling.


“Not known” just means he was smarter than the stupid (liberal) people running Germany.


Time that we start testing every pilot before every flight. Hand them a bacon sandwiche and throw any that don’t eat it off the dam plane.


Showing pix of him at San Francisco proves his communist leanings.


This tragedy should be blamed on muslims anyway ! : without 9/11, and other arab/muslim “air terrorism” (highjacking etc), the cockpit door would have been normal (not reinforced etc) and it could have been opened by the locked out pilot/crew who then could have retaken control of the plane.



Was he a Muzzie who changed his name or had converted recently?

Could this be the new ingenious tactic the terrorists are using to down planes?

This crazed response isn’t unique to Jim Hoft’s hate site; if you look at comments on any right wing blog or media site today you’ll find similar Islamophobic rants. For example, from the story at Breitbart “News:”

Accommodations to Islamic pilots could allow them room for a prayer rug in the cockpit and allowing them to navigate towards Mecca for Prayer Time before readjusting heading for final destination.


No Qu’rans allowed signs posted


yelling Allah Akbar while downing a plane is so yesterday..


The ACCELERATING demographics in Europe show that the ‘NO-GO’ areas of ISLAMIC CULTURE are GROWING and, as they MERGE, there will be FEWER and FEWER places to LAND.


Does O-hole allow Muslims to pilot AF One?

It would be interesting to know, how many times AF One has been flown by a Muslim?


I think andreas last thoughts went to Allah

At Breitbart there are thousands of comments like this. There’s a deep, deep sickness running amok in the right wing base.

Ted Cruz Compares Himself to Galileo, Gets Literally Everything Wrong About Galileo

Bad craziness from the GOP
Wingnuts • Views: 14,080

Good grief. There’s so much idiocy about climate change coming from conservatives today it boggles the mind (and we all know how painful that can be).

Let’s start with this absurdly stupid comment from GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz:

“On the global warming alarmists, anyone who actually points to the evidence that disproves their apocalyptical claims, they don’t engage in reasoned debate,” Cruz said in an interview with reporter Jay Root on Tuesday. “What do they do? They scream, ‘You’re a denier.’ They brand you a heretic. Today, the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers. It used to be [that] it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.”

There’s so much ignorance in these few sentences it’s a bit amazing.

First, it was never “accepted scientific wisdom” that the Earth was flat. This was an unscientific viewpoint that came from the Bronze Age, and it was science that debunked it.

Second, Galileo wasn’t branded a heretic because he argued against a flat Earth; he argued against geocentrism, the idea that Earth was the center of the universe and everything else revolved around it. In Galileo’s time, a round Earth was already well established.

Third, scientists don’t “scream ‘You’re a denier!’” They point out with voluminous facts and evidence that climate change is real and it’s happening now, and conservatives like Ted Cruz ignore the facts and evidence. That’s why they’re called “deniers” — because they deny mountains of scientific evidence and an overwhelming consensus.

But Ted Cruz wasn’t the only top GOP politician being stupid about climate change today; our old friend Bobby “Don’t Be Stupid” Jindal put on his clown makeup too. The creationist Governor of Louisiana is upset because FEMA is planning to require states to deal with climate change in order to receive disaster relief funding: Jindal: WH Shouldn’t Use FEMA to Push Climate Change Ideology.

Bobby has decided to try to paint the science of climate change as a “left wing ideology,” because of course he is.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Tuesday slammed a new FEMA rule that could force states to recognize climate change in order to receive disaster preparedness funds.

“This preparation saves lives,” Jindal said in a statement to the Washington Times. “The White House should not use it for political leverage to force acquiescence to their left-wing ideology.”

It’s easy to mock these people, but what they’re doing borders on criminal behavior; they’re deliberately misleading the public to try to get us to ignore an existential threat against the entire human species. I try not to use this word in front page posts, but these people are the very definition of ignorant, lying assholes.

A Nasty Surprise in the Greenhouse: The Gulf Stream is Slowing Down

by Peter Sinclair - Climate Denial Crock of the Week
Science • Views: 10,859


The disaster movie “The Day After Tomorrow” was based on long term scientific concerns about global warming’s impact on the North Atlantic Current, also called the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, - what most people think of as “The Gulf Stream” - although that is a simplification.

The movie was obviously over the top in terms of the projected impacts, but after a decade in which science has downplayed the possibility of such an event, a new paper shows that the circulation is indeed slowing down.

This could signal potential impacts on weather, the food chain, and circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the ocean.

I’ve been interviewing key authors of the paper, Lead author Stefan Rahmstorf, as well as paleoclimate expert Mike Mann, and Glaciologist Jason Box.

This is a paper that could have substantial impact, and might very well be distorted or sensationalized, - so bookmark this post as a damper for overhyped speculation, as well as a warning about real impacts.

Phil Robertson Fantasizes About Atheist Family Being Raped and Murdered

Wingnuts • Views: 16,044


Here’s the guy who was invited to give a speech at CPAC this year, and was awarded the “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment” prize.

I hesitated about even posting this, because it’s unbelievably deranged. This is what the right wing has devolved into.

“I’ll make a bet with you,” Robertson said. “Two guys break into an atheist’s home. He has a little atheist wife and two little atheist daughters. Two guys break into his home and tie him up in a chair and gag him. And then they take his two daughters in front of him and rape both of them and then shoot them and they take his wife and then decapitate her head off in front of him. And then they can look at him and say, ‘Isn’t it great that I don’t have to worry about being judged? Isn’t it great that there’s nothing wrong with this? There’s no right or wrong, now is it dude?’”

Robertson kept going: “Then you take a sharp knife and take his manhood and hold it in front of him and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if this [sic] was something wrong with this? But you’re the one who says there is no God, there’s no right, there’s no wrong, so we’re just having fun. We’re sick in the head, have a nice day.’”

“If it happened to them,” Robertson continued, “they probably would say, ‘something about this just ain’t right.”

Ted Cruz: The 9/11 Attacks Made Me Realize I Could Pander to Wingnuts by Listening to Country Music

Politics • Views: 18,746


Bringing new meaning to the term “pandering,” here’s Ted Cruz explaining that he “didn’t like how rock music responded” to the 9/11 attacks, so he switched to country.

As if “rock music” is some monolithic thing that all “responds” the same way. But seriously, Cruz is making a blindingly obvious play for the Republican base here, and of course, the host of CBS This Morning, Gayle King, nods right along as if it’s just hunky dory with her. Gross.

Then There Was the Time Ted Cruz Said, “We Need a Hundred More Like Jesse Helms in the Senate”

Politics • Views: 26,339


In a 2013 speech to the right wing Heritage Foundation, newly announced presidential candidate Ted Cruz sang the praises of Jesse Helms, the notoriously racist Senator from North Carolina. Cruz said Helms was the first politician to whom he ever donated money, and ended his fond reminiscences with the statement, “We need a hundred more like Jesse Helms in the US Senate.”

Remember, though — Ted Cruz can’t be a racist because his best friend in college was black.
