Remarks And Asides, Right Wing Watch Edition

If you have never visited the great watchdog website Right Wing Watch, you are not up-to-date on the crazy shit conservative Christians are saying and doing. I want to remind you that the headlines below aren’t satire. They be real.

Like this headline from yesterday about the musings of a crazy congressman from Texas:

Louie Gohmert: Obama’s ‘Hate Crimes’ Against Christians Invite God’s Judgment

Now we know why God sent us Donald Drumpf.


Courtesy of the site’s Right Wing Roundup section, here’s another Gohmert gem:

Louie Gohmert Stands By Claim That Gays Will Die Out if You Put Them on a Desert Island

And gays are standing by their claim that if you put all the Louie Gohmerts on a desert island they will become gay.


In any case, the loony legislator made more news today:

Louie Gohmert: Only ‘Self-Loathing’ Jews Get Along With Obama

That reminded me of two years ago, when Gohmert, who has said horrific things about President Obama, chaired the annual National Prayer Breakfast. At that strange event, a reconciliatory Obama said that he had “always found Louie to be unbelievably gracious every time I’ve seen him.” Thus, the headline for that day should have been: “Only ‘Self-Loathing’ Obama Gets Along With Gohmert.”


Also from today:

Glenn Beck: A Vote For Trump Or Clinton Carries ‘A Very Heavy Eternal Price’

Beck said,

I’m not going to face my maker if I drop dead and have Him go, ‘By the way, remember those crazy [constitutional] rights? You were alive then, weren’t you? What did you do? Who did you vote for?’

Funny how Glenn believes in an all-knowing, all-powerful God who can’t seem to remember when Glenn was alive or what he was doing or who he was voting for. If that’s the case, a newly-dead Beck would likely be greeted by the Less-Than-Almighty with this: “Now, who the hell are you again?”


More nuts in the news:

Dinesh D’Souza Says His New Movie Is So ‘Emotionally Powerful’ It’ll Cause Democrats To Need Counseling

Just to prove that Dinesh D’Souza doesn’t need counseling but a stadium full of psychiatrists, I will show you the trailer for his new movie:


Here’s a header announcing the amazing culinary skills of the Democratic front-runner:

Michael Savage: Hillary Clinton Will Become A Dictator Who Will Put ‘A Transgender In Your Soup’

I don’t know how appetizing that would be, but I’m guessing it would taste better than a Savage in our soup. And it wouldn’t make us stupid.


Mrs. Clinton isn’t the only one on the minds of the mindless:

Rick Joyner: Bernie Sanders Is Popular Because The Communist Party Runs The Schools 

Here is a sample of the mindlessness:

Mr. Joyner, a minister of the Gospel, happens to be a believer in something called Dominion Theology, which Wikipedia defines as “a theocratic ideology that seeks to implement a nation governed by conservative Christians ruling over the rest of society based on their understanding of biblical law.” 

Thank God the communists are running the schools!


And last up, an oldie-but-goodie headline from Right Wing Watch:

Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia To Die In Order To Highlight The Importance Of Electing Ted Cruz

Nope. If God really wanted to highlight the importance of electing Ted Cruz, he would kill Donald Drumpf. But he had better hurry.

    These people are simply NUTS!!!


  2. Mollie and I just returned from a one-week cruise in the Caribbean on the Holland America line. The captain and most officers are Dutch, the crew is multinational, from mostly SE Asia, the Philippines, Indonesia and the like. All are fluent in English and all appear to get along swimmingly with the passengers who are mainly from the U.S., Canada and Europe. It is a microcosm of the global community, but of course in a unique context. The service staff are motivated by ambition for upward mobility and their jobs are no doubt very competitive.

    Unlike the old days, the interactions between the servants and the served are now typified by personal exchanges and even humor, an attitude that is obviously encouraged by the company’s culture. We were previously on a ship of a different company where that was not the case and it makes a difference. But, under the surface, the reality is the same. The challenge is whether a reasonable balance can be maintained in a world where raw passions are controlled by rules and laws.

    You don’t have to dig very far down to uncover the reality. I see no reasonable alternative to open politics – it’s a balancing act and the pit is not far below. My hat’s off to the Democratic Party, most of whom are keeping up the effort to make it all work. I can’t say the same about the GOP these days; they are looking into the abyss.


    • Nice example, Jim. Since the turmoil of the 1960s, Democrats have done a decent job of trying to make politics work and, with some notable exceptions, make it work for the people. And, yes, the Republican Party is in a period of transition. Either it will self-destruct, or party leaders will conclude that they have to cut themselves off from the Trump phenomenon in order to attempt to save their party, even if that means essentially conceding the election to Hillary Clinton. Trump is not temperamentally fit to be president of the country and GOP party leaders know it. Not only that, he has exposed the divide between the priorities of the Republican donor class and the working class people who, for reasons mainly related to social issues and trade issues, still vote for right-wingers. And I’m not sure Republican can ever fix that divide. They may have to start paying more attention to the interests of working class people who are worried about trade deals and issues related to the loss of manufacturing jobs rather than prioritizing tax cuts for their wealthy financiers.
