It's meat! And it thinks!

When you are too fucking stupid to make a cogent, rational comment on the political scene, you stoop to idiotic shit like this:
AP Reporter Calls Chelsea Clinton “Tall and Attractive” Wait, What?….
Pandering or bad vision?….
Remember, kids… this is the same cretin who tells us that it is “liberals” who engage in personal attacks. Go take a long look in the nearest mirror, Zippy.
I’ve taken apart the “thinking” of the bigoted eliminationist Michael from Flight Pundit in the past. Here’s an example of his latest incomprehensible spew:
Because he we a simpleton pile of crap on America.
Try as I might, I cannot make myself believe that this was written by a sentient being. The sad part is that Michael probably thinks his prose is golden… a sure victim of the Dunning-Kruger effect if ever there was one.
In commenting recently on an article in the Baltimore Chronicle, the mouthbreathing hate-addict “Emperor Misha” exhibits a degree of hypocrisy and intolerance that may be unparalleled in the wingnut blogosphere.
The Chronicle article speculates on the possible changes in the American political scene if and when the warming of the Earth’s climate were to cause flooding along the US coasts. Misha, paying little if any attention to the actual content of the article, screeches that the author is calling for “wholesale slaughter”. A clear reading of the Chronicle article reveals that the author neither says nor implies that anyone should die.
This is a claim one cannot make regarding Misha himself. He has, at various times, called for the murder of policemen, a judge, and a district attorney. Killing people who disagree with him, or who have done the least little thing he finds offensive, is a constant theme in Misha’s posts. Many of the commenters on his post seem to become nearly orgasmic at the thought of committing murder.
Eliminationist rhetoric is a mainstay of the far right blogosphere. Misha’s claim that it is the “left” that desires slaughter is both transparently dishonest and a textbook example of projection.
Here is yet another in the endless stream of examples of far-right wingnuts who believe that killing people — even people they have never met, and about whom they know absolutely nothing — is a perfectly wonderful thing.
The morally incompetent cretin “Big Dog” is celebrating (yes, that is the correct word) the death of one man and the mauling of two others by a tiger that escaped its confinement at the San Francisco Zoo. Big Dog appears to be overjoyed that these people were killed and injured. Why? Because he believes that the victims were from San Francisco, and he is actually stupid enough to think that he knows the political views of every single inhabitant of San Francisco (he refers to the victims as “moonbats”), and killing moonbats is, in Big Dog’s twisted, perverted world view, Always a Good Thing:
I imagine the moonbats did not perceive the tiger as a threat and that if they only reasoned with it, all would be well… Sometimes preemptive strikes are good…
This is the kind of eliminationist rhetoric one finds all too often on the fringes of the far right. If you do not think exactly as they do, if you do not toe the wingnut line, you deserve to die. Remember this, the next time you see Big Dog or one of his ilk trying to lecture someone on an issue of morality. They themselves have none.
Juan Cole reminds us of the Top Ten Myths about Iraq 2007:
10. Myth: The US public no longer sees Iraq as a central issue in the 2008 presidential campaign.
In a recent ABC News/ Washington Post poll, Iraq and the economy were virtually tied among voters nationally, with nearly a quarter of voters in each case saying it was their number one issue. The economy had become more important to them than in previous months (in November only 14% said it was their most pressing concern), but Iraq still rivals it as an issue!
9. Myth: There have been steps toward religious and political reconciliation in Iraq in 2007. Fact: The government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has for the moment lost the support of the Sunni Arabs in parliament. The Sunnis in his cabinet have resigned. Even some Shiite parties have abandoned the government. Sunni Arabs, who are aware that under his government Sunnis have largely been ethnically cleansed from Baghdad, see al-Maliki as a sectarian politician uninterested in the welfare of Sunnis.
8. Myth: The US troop surge stopped the civil war that had been raging between Sunni Arabs and Shiites in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
Fact: The civil war in Baghdad escalated during the US troop escalation. Between January, 2007, and July, 2007, Baghdad went from 65% Shiite to 75% Shiite. UN polling among Iraqi refugees in Syria suggests that 78% are from Baghdad and that nearly a million refugees relocated to Syria from Iraq in 2007 alone. This data suggests that over 700,000 residents of Baghdad have fled this city of 6 million during the US ‘surge,’ or more than 10 percent of the capital’s population. Among the primary effects of the ‘surge’ has been to turn Baghdad into an overwhelmingly Shiite city and to displace hundreds of thousands of Iraqis from the capital.
The sad, morally vacuous hatemongers at StopTheACLU.com have chosen to celebrate the season by once again wishing death on others:
That’s what passes for “peace on earth, good will towards men” with the gutless pissants at StopTheACLU.com.
For those of you who do understand the true spirit of Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Hannukah. May peace and joy be yours through the coming year.
Michael Montoure has written what may be the finest, most succinct essay on the elusive art of happiness and self-improvement that I have ever read…
Find the demon.
Do you know what I’m talking about? It’s the little voice in the back of your head that’s always whispering, “You can’t.” You know the demon. You may think you hate the demon, but you don’t. You love it. You let it own you. You do everything it says. Every time there’s something you want, you consult the demon first, to see if it will say, “You can’t have that.”
What you don’t realize is that your demon doesn’t know anything. It’s an idiot. It’s nothing but a parrot, repeating back to you anything negative that its ever heard, anything that makes you hurt, makes you squirm. If a teacher once told you “You’ll never accomplish anything,” it was listening; it hoards words like that and repeats them back to you to watch you jump. It doesn’t know what its saying. It doesn’t care.
You can take me literally or not, as suits you. But do, please, the next time you hear that voice in your head, imagine it, visualize it, as something physical that you can get hold of; tear it out of you, feel its fingers weaken and lose their grip on your spine, and grind it to dust, to nothing, under your boot heel on your way out to dance in the streets.
You can. You think you can’t; but it’s telling you that. You can.
Let me tell you something “MeatBrain” — you run your Twinkle-toed Communist loving Mouth one more time against Hoosier Army Mom, and I’ll permanently ban your slant-eyed, gook-ass forever!
The phrase “slant-eyed, gook-ass” is quite obviously racist, and I pointed that out in a second article entitled “Blatant racism at Hoosier Army Mom’s Blog”. I sent a trackback from that article to your blog post. However, either you or someone associated with you has chosen to alter the text of my trackback (mirror), making it appear that I said the following:
Hoosier Army Mom’s Blog – the best I’ve ever read!
Hoosier Army Mom – I really enjoy coming here and reading such great posts, and I apologize for being such an ass by posting nasty things about you on my blog which simply aren’t true.
I’m sorry – guess I’ll have to go over to Cao’s place and see if I can stir up more trouble there – keep the great posts coming, as I’m really lonely and need to read alot!
Trackback by ThinkingMeat | December 22, 2007
As you may be aware, trackbacks include an excerpt from the article that initiates the trackback. Since the text of the trackback as displayed on your blog does not appear in my original article, the trackback has clearly been altered. It is, in effect, a forgery that you have posted under my name.
You entreat those who disagree with you to do so “respectfully and factually”. Do you believe that you have any right to make such a request, when it is clear that you are unwilling to treat those who comment at your blog with respect, and are so obviously willing to ignore the facts and lie about what they have said?— mb
P.S. Please do not waste any time whining about my use of your real name. You have already published this information publicly.
UPDATE 12/22/07 9:50 AM EST: Quite predictably, Judy Doucette (or someone with admin access to her blog) deleted the falsified trackback shortly after I posted this. Naturally, I have it mirrored.
