Seems like a good time and place for a return shout-out to the dogged souls at Sadly, NO!, where Cerberus pauses in his goddess-blessed task of beating Jim Hoft about the virtual ears with a pixel pig-bladder to ask:
Man, remember when Charles Johnson and John Cole were just right-wing fucks receiving endless blowjobs from freaks like this?
No, seriously, who slipped them the antidote to the crazy pills, and can we sneak it into the water supply of rural areas? Cause, that shit doesn’t happen nearly as often as it should.
Because late on a Saturday night / early on a Sunday morning is a good time to savor a post that starts…
The right is really desperate for a martyr. I mean, it always seems the Left gets to have all the martyrs just because they are the ones getting killed by the right-wingers. And that’s just not fair.
The Left doesn’t even want its martyrs and besides wastes them by doing things like having candlelight vigils, marches for solidarity, or using the deaths to highlight social ills or problems instead of doing cool stuff like using them to justify even more eliminationist rhetoric against people right-wingers hate. Not to mention the full-on ratcheting up of bigotry….
Don’t ever change, dudes.
I love sadly. I went to the source of the latest spanking there – Hofts mess – before Sadly got to it, and predicted in the comments that he’d end up gracing sadly no again in short order.
It didn’t take cerberus long to deliver.
And may I say, tin tin must be beating cerb properly because his snark has improved dramatically since he was a newbie there.
I didn’t think I could like the Sadly Naughts any more than I do, but I just clicked on their “about” tab, and it goes to a post they wrote in 2004 straight-forwardly reporting a German TV broadcast which investigated allegations of US abuse of Iraqi children in prisons.
That is god-damn awesome.
Is there any chance that these two rednecks will “re-convert” ? Jus’ asking. I mean it would be irresponsible not to speculate.
I clicked through to read the whole thing, and it was pretty damn hilarious. Just what I needed before bedtime after staying up way too late.
I do sometimes wonder what it would take to make me change my entire political orientation. At this point, I can’t imagine myself ever voting for a Republican for president, the supreme court is too important even if I don’t like a given Democratic candidate. I can see myself voting for a leftist third party guy, given I live in a safe Dem state, but never Republican. It must be very odd to one day decide, no, all those things I’ve ever believed in have been wrong, I’m going to start advocating going in the exact opposit direction as a country.

Good day for the Gopher softball team. It’s been a strange season. We’ve lost every series we’ve played against teams lower than we are in the Big 10 standings, and the only team above us we’ve lost a series to is Wisconsin.
I guess that’s what happens when your main pitcher is a sophomore and the starting lineup consists of five freshmen, a sophomore and three juniors.
Bodes well for the next couple of seasons, though. I just wish we got to play more than 16 home games.
um…I don’t think that Cerberus is afflicted with a Y chromosome…
Thanks for reminding me to buzz them!

@rhwombat: That’s what I thought, too.
I lurve Sadly No, but I often can’t get it to load; once kept a no-frills browser on my laptop just for that purpose.
Missed them, though; will try again. They are an important part of the Merciless Ridicule Movement that seems to be the only thing that will make a dent in right wing egos.
Not logic, not empathy; mockery. That is what works.
Has anyone reasoned why rightwingers think Nazi is a leftwing organization? Because Nazi= National Soc1alist
When you try to tag someone like JT Ready as a liberal, you are really, really, really desperate. Holy shit OMG WTF desperate.

@Professor: Because either Rush or Beck told them so. I got into it with a conservative friend of mine over this and was unable to convince him otherwise. We don’t talk much anymore.
Because Jonah done tole ’em, that’s why. His meticulously researched-by-others tome is a
gibberingglittering example of what it takes to expose the Nazi-fied Lefties for what they REALLY are. And because vegans hate Jews, or something like that. And, as Shakespeare or someone else once said: because SHUT UP that’s why.
Oh, and because Reichwingers are fucking stupid. If we could herd them all into Texas, and then let
AztlanTejas secede to form it’s own nation – Dumbfuckistan – the country and world would be a lot better off. (I’d normally include Oklahoma in the secession pact, but I’d really hate to see Soonergrunt go.)
@Professor: That is the exact reason. I was in a book club discussion, discussing China and communism and I made some comment about extremism on either side of the spectrum like communism or Naziism, and was immediately shouted down by several people that the Nazis weren’t rightwing…it stood for National Socialists! I argued back, but no one else spoke up to support me, so I let it die. (And yes, this is in Texas.)
And the People’s Republic of China is, strangely enough, not a Republic. Or Republican. Unless, you know, they WANT Mao.
@rhwombat: For some reason, I thought Cerberus was transgendered.

@Professor: Many Russian Jews with family members killed in the Holocaust prefer to say their loved ones were “murdered by fascists”. To me, this terminology keeps it real, and I prefer it to the term “Holocaust” which has come to be regarded as almost an act of nature, a big, bad bi-partisany thing without a political context.
I’m a bit shocked that the Wingnut Brigadoofs haven’t mentioned JT Ready’s run for Pinal County Sheriff as a Democrat as proof of his ties to the Liberals.
Anyhoo, it could have been quite an election: two anti-immigrant/anti-Latino sheriff candidates with connections to Fox News-friendly politicians and causes, each with a Latin lover. On the Right: Republican Paul Babeu with his phone-center boy toy. And on the further Right: JT Ready with his Latina girlfriend he keeps as a domestic servant and (allegedly) beats. Almost makes me wish I was a resident of such fine townships as Casa Grande or Picacho or Maricopa, the latter of which is subject to a TODD!-inspired Ultra-Norteno “Reconquista” as Alaskans and their half-Johnston babies are being moved in at the expense of Right Wing groups to spout nonsense about ineffective birth control woo and allegedly attend classes at ASU.
Unfortunately for those of us who like to laugh at idiots, the fine citizens of Pinal County will likely just end up with a Republican sheriff who does boring stuff like patrol roads and arrest criminals and stuff rather than a media figure who gets in armed standoffs with Mexican cartels who turn out to be other deputies. If only Maricopa County could be so boring….
@beltane: “Murdered by Fascists” is brilliant.
On a related note, has anyone noticed that the only people who deny the Holocaust are those who think it was a good idea? That’s the problem with such things as denial: it gets at what the person is wanting to have happened. See, for those who view the Holocaust as a goal, it’s an unfulfilled one and thus Holocaust denial is completely logical. For those who see it as a historical event, this is maddening logic. But when the deniers say it didn’t happen, what they’re really saying is that the job is undone, not that there was no job.
Yes, yes: some of those deniers go to great lengths to prove the Jews just got eaten up by other Jews or were cheating on the Polish Census to be welfare queens or whatever it is they’ve alleged. But their overall point was and always will be that there was no Holocaust because there are still living Jews.
You’re now on the obot watchlist. Your lack of fealty TO THE O-GAWD IS IN QUESTION.
Prepare for the backlash.
Oh they went there alright. In spades. Check Hoft’s comment section.
That picture of Hoft is infuriating. He is violating three basic rules of firearm safety:
1. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire (every gun nut seems to forget this rule when they want to look tough).
2. Do not point the barrel at anything you are not willing to destroy (that gun needs to be pointed at the ground, not up in the air).
3. Be sure of your target, and be sure of what’s beyond it (unless the gun is pointing at the ground, he should be looking at wherever the gun is pointing, not mugging for the camera).
If Hoft can’t be bothered to follow three simple rules, then he shouldn’t own a gun, much less a Kalashnikov.
Manly-men, such as Hoft – and, actually, all Reichwingers – spit in the face (or perhaps fart in the general direction) of your silly, candy-ass gun safety rules.
Well, they would, until the range master spotted them pulling that crap, that is.
@Argive: Are you kidding? Hoft is so fucking stupid that he could probably injure himself with a spork. OF COURSE he shouldn’t own a gun.
New rule for concealed carry permit tests:
The last question should be “Did Bill Ayers admit to having written Dreams From My Father?” If you answer yes, you fail automatically.
So naturally, he’s a goddamned commie too. Buy AMERICAN!
@Argive: Or alternately, “was Hitler’s Nazi regime primarily an expression of socialism?” Again, an affirmative answer = AUTOFAIL.
