“Conservatives are not necessarily stupid,
but most stupid people are conservatives.”
(John Stuart Mill)
Here are what I can comfortably refer to as the last week’s top ten examples of right wing LUNACY. They’re not arranged in any particular order (any “order” in wingnut spoutings is typically a contradiction in terms anyway), and as usual the relatively brief titles do indeed suffice to tell people with functioning minds all they really care to know. Topics include, of course, the week’s manifestations of hate, fear, persecution, revolution, women, communism, the antichrist(s)(?), and diets. Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but considering the sources, maybe not so much.
That is, of course, only the tip of the lunacy iceberg. Still, there should be enough freakishness embedded therein to drive the average progressive liberal a few feet closer to sanity’s edge, to the point beyond which revulsion takes over.
Revulsion. Hmmh. Bryan Fischer (see above) spoke of “revulsion” when he said:
“I think that most of us have an instinctive, I think revulsion is not too strong of a word, to the act of homosexuality, what actually happens when homosexuals come together and engage in sexual congress. We look at that and there is just an inner revulsion to that.”
“God has the same reaction that you and I do,” he continued, “but that instinctive revulsion that we have when we think about homosexuality, I was born that way.”
Curiously, that’s almost precisely how I see things — IF, that is, the words “homosexuality” and “homosexuals” are changed to, say, “conservatism” and “conservatives.” Bingo. Revulsion. I’m guessing that’s because, as Fischer pointed out, “I was born that way.”
