This is who they are. This is what they do.

I wonder where this guy stood on the idea to quarantine AIDs patients back before we know what AIDS was and how it was transferred — when it was largely contained to the gay community. Was he all for “science” then?

And out of curiosity, I wonder what his advertisers will think about all this? In fact, perhaps that’s the point: perhaps this is a set-up to raise the ire of the silly religious folk, at which time the Left will point to their outrage as PROOF Christians want to control the airwaves.

It’s an all out war. Time we start thinking in terms of RISK, not checkers.

  1. For perspective, I think this is the guy who let slip in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Giffords that the Right Wing “killed (John) Kennedy in Dallas.”

    They love humanity. Actual living, breathing people – less so.

  2. “Their God … keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in Alabama, and Mississippi, and Arkansas, and Georgia, and Oklahoma,” Malloy says in his broadcast from Friday. “You know, the Bible belt, where [in a mocking voice] they ain’t gonna let no goddamned science get in the way, it says in the Bible, blah blah blah blah blah…”

    Whew. At least he didn’t call the Virgin Mary a slut. So we’re good.

  3. Do these jackasses know any actual scientists? (Political science does not count.) Does he know that NASA is headquartered mainly in the South? Does he know that more astronauts and Miss Americas come from Oklahoma than any other state? Also Hall Of Fame baseball players? Has he ever been to the South or the Midwest?

    I personally want him and his kind to keep thinking that way so they don’t decide to move here.

  4. He wants you to concentrate on the destruction, so that you won’t notice all the neighbors pulling together to take care of one another and rebuild their neighborhoods. Nine times out of ten, those knuckle-dragging cousin-humpers don’t even wait for the gubmint to tell them it’s okay!

  5. He’s probably be gabberflasted that most people here say of their freshly demolished homes, businesses and hospitals: “It’s only stuff. We can always get more stuff.”

    While of course, thanking the stupid skygod for sparing them and theirs.

  6. Beck this morning said that his man on the ground (Raj) in Indiana reported that people were smiling. “But you just lost everything,” Raj says, and they respond, “Nope, here’s my family, alive.”

    Materialists all, apparently. Clinging tightly to their tacky Wal-Mart knick-knacks because their lives are all about acquisition.

  7. I don’t get it. A lefty mocking peoples religious beliefs? That’s their bread and butter.

    And soon, their free morning after pills.

  8. Notice that the people picking through the rubble are “folks”. No one is wearing hard hats and carrying clipboards.

    I read yesterday that a woman had been going through the crushed homes in her former neighborhood looking for presciption medicines that she the took to Mass to find the oldsters who needed their meds. What a selfish bitch, anyway.

  9. Back in the olden days tornadoes, earthquakes and such were called “acts of God”. Might still be such on property insurance forms, I don’t know.

    These anti-science old time bitter clingers that declared droughts, hurricanes, and volcanoes “acts of God” are the ones that mastered flight, discovered penicillin, harnessed nuclear energy, gave us TV, and walked the moon.

    Modern science is consumed with mastering what always has been and always will be the providence of God, and neglecting the advancement of man.

  10. Nota bene. This entire manufactured outrage over “contraception” (when it is really about setting up the first line of defense for Obamneycare and steamrolling the First Amendment) is a textbook illustration of the way Republicans have persistently conceded the ground of public discourse to the Left. It started with Clinton’s catamite Stephanopoulos deliberately injecting a spurious issue into a GOP “debate” (read: clown car show). Now that the Republicans have gone into puppy submission mode they have effectively surrendered the entire issue of freedom of conscience moot. Does anyone think any Republican, whether President or Senator or Representative, will dare to challenge the notion that taxpayers must fund any and all medical treatments for women even remotely related to reproduction?

    The GOP killed George Allen by submission. They will kill as much of their own agenda as the Left demands, so long as they continue to let the Left frame the debate.

  11. effectively made the entire issue of freedom of conscience moot

    I oughta proofread my damn posts.

  12. George, I haven’t followed Santorum’s comments on the subject closely, but so far as I can tell from what I have heard, neither he nor Newt Gingrich will concede that the “contraception” ploy is anything but a distraction from the more salient issues, and in itself amounts to an assault on the first amendment, beside serving as the thin edge of a wedge of socialism bound and determined to displace our freedoms entire. Maybe it is the case we shouldn’t identify these two guys as “the Republicans”, but on the other hand, why not?

  13. That’s really good, SDN. Thanks for posting that.

  14. neither (Santorum) nor Newt Gingrich will concede that the “contraception” ploy is anything but a distraction from the more salient issues

    Unfortunately these people are the unhelpful, divisive, unelectable types who prevent the indispensable swing voter from enjoying the cool shade of the Big Republican Tent.

    When we have Boehner scolding private citizens using their pointed free speech in defense of liberty and exposing the Left’s demagogery, one cannot expect much from our Republican hands on the levers of power.

  15. “are the unhelpful, divisive, unelectable types”

    Seems to me in the midst of a contest to prove or disprove that very assertion, it amounts to conceding a rhetorical bridge too far to speak of them in this way, albeit even only in jest, lest the jest become a too oft’ repeated self-fulfilling predicate.

    These are political men, doing what political men do: standing up and taking a position. And it seems to me noteworthy, anyhow, that in this case the position they’ve chosen aligns pretty damn well with the sentiment I hear around these parts.

  16. in this case the position they’ve chosen aligns pretty damn well with the sentiment I hear around these parts.

    I can’t disagree. However, seeing how they are polling in the real world of primary politics doesn’t bode well for their future.

  17. The future is the deal, indeed. Problem with the future though, right? Nobody knows. Some say, well ok, we don’t know but that doesn’t mean we can’t simply create it, ’cause that’s what we do (and only can do) anyhow [Manny Kant, for instance]. So, let’s get to it.

  18. As I said yesterday, per Newt’s remarks about Miss Law Slut just being a distraction from the First Amendment assault, he is the only one with his eye on the ball. No soft pedaling about “language”, et al, just that she is a non-issue and that we need to keep our eye on the ball.

  19. But I repeat myself.

  20. This entire manufactured outrage over “contraception” … is a textbook illustration of the way Republicans have persistently conceded the ground of public discourse to the Left.

    Here’s a performative of how OUTLAW works: The kidnapper sets up the archetypal hostage situation, and Simon obediently (if awkwardly) plays his role as the guy who won’t shoot because, LOOK! HOSTAGE!

    Capt. Mal, rather than Playing Hostages, dispatches with the kidnapper with one shot, after which the kidnapper is unceremoniously tossed out of the ship.

    They had more urgent affairs to take care of and no time to deal with the kidnapper’s nonsense.

    The end.

  21. di, reminds me of Bill Whittle’s recent “Han Shot First!” video (linked on pw several days back, IIRC).

  22. Also, I found out this morning that I’ve been hired at Solera Networks as their sole tech writer.

    Starting tomorrow.

    3.5 months since my last contract ended and I’m still not rested. #ineveram

  23. di, reminds me of Bill Whittle’s recent “Han Shot First!” video

    I ran into the Capt. Mal video because of the Whittle thing. Something in the comments, I reckon, or on Twitter.

  24. You guys and girls need to watch “Taken”. Bad guys never catch a break in that movie. Liam Neeson make Charles Bronson look like a piker.

  25. “Their God … keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in Alabama, and Mississippi, and Arkansas, and Georgia, and Oklahoma,” Malloy says in his broadcast from Friday.

    This Malloy creep who nobody’d heard of before now (and nobody’ll remember tomorrow) must not have seen the video of the woman who saved her house by calling on God.

  26. Congrats on the gig, di. This is permanent?

    In other news…G-8 summit to be held at Camp David, not Chicago

    I can’t imagine why.

  27. Now, the Democrats and the leftists sensed opportunity over this controversy that they created themselves. They publicly turned the situation they created to their own advantage. They invite Barry Lynn. They disinvite him at the last moment and they want him replaced with Sandra Fluke. “Who is this? We don’t know who she is.” The second panel of witnesses. It was Carolyn Maloney. If you don’t recall last week, Carolyn Maloney, Democrat from New York, started shouting, “Where are the women? Where are the women?” They start saying Republicans hate women; they started attacking Issa and Republicans on the committee, saying, “They don’t want hear from women! They’re misogynist, sexist,” or what have you.”

    Better than Risk, I think — as a board-game analog to actual life and politics — is Go. And a good introduction to Go for westerners, as it happens, is a novel, by Yasunari Kawabata, about a single (real) game played in 1938, which, as it also happens, involved a controversial “cheat” within the rules (of the match conditions, not the game itself), which in turn, indirectly determined the outcome. And too, the novel addresses political change as well, in the overthrow of the old, more conservative tradition, for the new, scientific and militarist ways of modern Japan (and the cheat), where winning without honor was thinkable — natural, even.

  28. Congrats on the gig, di. This is permanent?

    Contract now; if they like me after 6 months, option to make it permanent.

  29. Better than Risk, I think — as a board-game analog to actual life and politics — is Go.

    Please.

    Calvinball.

  30. I didn’t read most of it, but apparently this chubby-faced cumslut does not accept Limbaugh’s apology. Stoke that 15 minutes , honey. FOR THE CAUSE!!!

  31. It’s for damn sure easier to read comic strips than novels, especially novels about a foreign people, so it’s got that goin’ for it.

  32. If Georgetown has to cover the cost of Fluke’s contraception, they should also have to pay for all the Jaegermeister I’d need to get me drunk enough to want to fuck her. That’s a cool grand, easy.

  33. I don’t know why exactly, but arguing over this incident has given me more of a headache than any ten others put together.

  34. Abe, probably because it’s such an obvious diversion from something important and ominous to something silly and distracting.

    It’s like your house is going into foreclosure, and you find out your wife sent another thousand dollars to Nigerian email woman kept from her rightful fortune by unfortunate circumstances.

    How many times are you going to fall for that! I gotta lie down…

  35. Did you ever notice how the more sophisticated and intellectual some folks are the more juvenile their concept of God and religion is?

    I do. And I make sure to point it out to them, too.

  36. Couldn’t agree with you more Lee. And for the something important and ominous — among the many things looming on the horizon — how about a hot war, a for reals war of widespread destruction and world-wide implications?

  37. Oh, I may have mistaken the incident you’re talking about Abe. I was thinking the fluke thang. Is that what you were referring to?

  38. If a hot war breaks out, and Iran is involved, I expect the lights to go out here early on(EMP attack).

    Wouldn’t that be a splendid opportunity for Obama to impose Martial Law…?

  39. Yes, the Fluke thing, Lee. I actually got in an argument at NRO of all places with a couple of “conservatives” who were backing up a lefty. They actually asserted that Fluke never even talked about sex in her testimony, that the whole thing was about women who need to take birth control pills for other health reasons and are deprived of it by. It’s sort of bewildering.

  40. Oops. Should read: And they’re deprived of it by evil Catholic organizations.

  41. hat the whole thing was about women who need to take birth control pills for other health reasons and are deprived of it by.

    funny some how the billions given by the gov’t to planned parenthood never enters into this discussion

  42. Funny how freak’in birth control is the main concern for insurance coverage. That the battle they picked to fight is over a voluntary expense. That everybody can’t see what a bogus issue they are using to advance fundamental transformation.

    Excuse me, I’m going to go shoot a gopher. Or maybe a snake if I see one…

  43. It’s an all out war. Time we start thinking in terms of RISK, not checkers.

    Where does the Fortress Australia strategy fit here?

  44. I thought Directive 10-289 came from the Unification Board, not HHS.

  45. @SDN, thank you, that gave me the biggest sad.

  46. They actually asserted that Fluke never even talked about sex in her testimony,

    She didn’t.

    She just kept saying “contraception” when she really meant (or “meant”) “hormone therapy.”

    The assertion that it costs $1000 per year for contraception (and that it’s hard to get contraception, etc.) is what led to all the jokes and cracks about “just how much contraception do you need”?

    And now it’s a permanent part of the narrative.

    However, she is most definitely saying, “OMG! If you ban contraception, you also effectively ban hormone therapy!” as a Trojan horse to force Georgetown and other religious institutions to bend to the will of the HHS.

    So that she and hers can get “free contraception” in the form of The Pill, sterilization, abortifacients, IUDs, condoms, etc.

    So in a roundabout way, she is advocating for consequence-free sex, just not directly. Not in that testimony.

  47. You’re way more into the weeds with this stuff than I’d ever care to go, di. Their assertion was predicated on the litany of anecdotal “testimonies” that she threw out – which she herself characterized as outliers. As you well know, the fact that she clung to the word contraception as a catch-all is pretty immaterial to all but the most obtuse. Hence my irritation with them.

  48. If I gave Congressional testimony about the responsiveness of my wang to all the different celebrity tarts in pop culture, but never talked about actually having sex, I would nevertheless expect that by reasonable inference my sex life would come to be a topic of conversation.

  49. The leftist mind is a curious thing. Apparently testifying in front of Congress is not enough to make you a public figure, but donating to non-profits, is.

  50. Malloy used to have a show on WSB, here in Atlanta. He came across as a hate-filled, pus-bag leftist, which made for a short career. He was run out of town on a rail, but we were kind enough not to apply tar and feathers.

    I see he hasn’t changed.

  51. Is a pointless and twisted disdain for theology and a region of the country REALLY a substitute for politics on the radio now? I mean a bunch of tornadoes blew up some towns is the issue and the solutions is to grumble about how annoying the existence of stupid fuckin’ rural Christians is? That’s politics?

    Rush was responding to a weirdo trying to get people to allow the government to force a health insurance provider to purchase expensive birth control measures as a result of being affiliated as a grad student with a catholic institution. There was a point, right or wrong. He had some activity to complain about.

    He wasn’t just using a the destruction of a town by extreme weather to mock people on a largely made up basis because it proves that there is no god and anyone who disagrees is stupid and anyone who agrees is smart.
