Remember that guy in the Bush Administration who said this:
“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.”
That is how the entire right wing from the foot soldiers to elected officials operates, culminating in today’s hilarious attempt by Sarah Palin’s devoted slaves to edit Paul Revere’s Wikipedia page to fit their idol’s completely mangled interpretation of basic American history.
Right now, Revere and the rest of the original Tea Partiers are rolling in their graves because this band of idiots associate themselves with them.
I’m not entirely sure what the Independent’s Robert Chalmers was hoping to achieve by sitting down with “racistislamophoberepublicantimuslimbigot” Pamela Geller (she forgot “starkravingmadlyinsanelunatic”). If he was doing a study on mental illness, I could have seen the point, because if we knew exactly what afflicts Geller’s mind we might be able to stop it spreading to normal human beings.
But treating this woman as a person to be seriously interviewed and to have her delusions held up to “is it x or y” scrutiny?
It kinda pisses me off that she gets an interview in a national newspaper while millions of sane, politically aware people willing to share their opinions are ignored because a freak show makes better copy than actual insightful analysis on any given topic.
Erstwhile presidential candidate and theocrat Mike Huckabee’s launched a new program to teach American kids real history. You see, the problem with those Texas textbooks, is that while they teach history according to conservatives, it still involves reading. America must be dumbed down even further. To get an idea of how much Huckabee’s new pet project has to do with actual history, just look at the banner depicting three presidents, and see which president is featured more prominently than the two Founding Fathers, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.
The site and program features several ‘cartoon’ videos which make Atlas Shrugged: The Movie look like Oscar-worthy material. Of course, the site only offers previews…you didn’t think a conservative figure was going to do something without bilking the rubes, did you? You can get your first film from only $9.95!
Here’s the first of several of these horrendous cartoons to indoctrinate educate your kids, called ‘The Reagan Revolution’. And of course, what’s a kids’ cartoon without bad guys? Step forward…a black guy demanding that people “gimme yo money”.
