Nazis March In Phoenix

In hate on November 9, 2009 at 4:26 pm

I wish I would have known about this, I would have gone to the opposition march in an Obama t-shirt. I’m going to assume they are not just open racists, but Teabaggers as well. There can’t be too many Obama fans in that bunch. Also, I’m sure (without irony) they all consider themsevles Christians, so that would have been a good way to troll them.

i just found your blog….i will never read it again… i think its funny how an atheist is for government sponsored genocide against the unborn….. why do you hate babys so much??? is it because babys are GODS favorite??? Since you support fascism that means you are responsible for over a trillion of murders each year…..YOU will be held accountable! i hope you don’t have any kids…but if you do i pray the LORD sees them into better hands. if decent GOD LOVING people cant get to you…. HE can!!!!!!!!!!

RESPONSE:

Fascism? Get real, that’s so August.

Over a trillion? Better check your numbers. I doubt many of the 3.2 billion females living on Earth have had 333 abortions. After all, it is hard to get pregnant every month for 28 years, well, unless you are dating K-Fed (zing!).

Thanks for reading, if only once.

Update: The Nation Skewers Limbaugh

In Culture Wars, hate, kooks, politics, racists, sports, updates on October 14, 2009 at 8:21 pm

The Nation’s Dave Zirin responds to Rush Limbaugh calling him ‘scum’. This is an update from a previous post.

Full Story at The Nation

Limbaugh said of us:

They are the ones with prejudice and bigotry coursing through their vanes [sic], through their hearts, and through their souls. They are consumed with jealousy and rage. They are all liberals–and make no mistake: That’s what this is about. It is about ideology. It isn’t about race. It’s about their being jealous and attempting to discredit me, and they’ve now sunk to the low of repeating fabricated quotes that they cannot source…. These people are scum.

What we all did was carry a quote from Limbaugh that he absolutely insists he did not say. The quote is:

We didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.

For all the dittoheads out there, here is how we came up with the quote: it was in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Detroit Free Press, the Washington Post, and in the book 101 People Who Are Really Screwing America by Jack Huberman. It has been out in the ether for years. Now that it is endangering his chances to become an NFL owner, Limbaugh is serving up a full heaping of indignation.

Serious Concern Over Political Motives in Census Workers Hanging

In hate, kooks, neanderthals, republicans, Violence on September 24, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Fears are growing that the death of a teacher, cancer survivor, father, and part-time census worker, Bill Sparkman, was a politically motivated homicide. In my option inflammatory rhetoric from the right is partly to blame. Though they will never acknowledge it, or stop.

Via Huffingtonpost

Associated Press reporter Devlin Barrett was on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow” show Wednesday night to discuss the shocking death of a census worker in Kentucky.

“Obviously the details — the few details we know at this point are very disturbing,” said Barrett, “and could feed a larger political argument if this ends up being the result of anti-government sentiment. But they don’t know that for absolute certain yet. And part of the investigators’ job is to rule out any other explanation for what happened.”

Federal Census Worker Hung in Rural Kentucky

“Fed” Was Scrawled on His Chest

Just a few months after Minnesota rep and national embarrassment Michelle Bachmann decried the census as a plot by the government ‘brown shirts’ to invade your home and deport you to internment camps with other “real Americans”. A census worker has been hung in deep red Kentucky. While it is unknown if it was murder or a suicide, I think we can all figure what happened.

Again I ask, at what point does someone using fiery rhetoric, grossly false claims, and race baiting become responsible for the violence it incites?

Via Huffington Post

WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating the hanging death of a U.S. Census worker near a Kentucky cemetery, and a law enforcement official told The Associated Press the word ‘fed” was scrawled on the dead man’s chest.

The body of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and occasional teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The Census has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation.

Murder Suspects Spoke of Starting a Revolution Against the U.S. Government

A man and his nine year old daughter are the latest victims in the string of hate crimes that have changed the national debate. It will come as no surprise that this Hispanic family’s murderers were white supremacists with ties to the controversial “Minute Men”, vigilantes who “patrol” (get drunk) at the border looking for illegal immigrants to “detain” (rough up).

According to local law enforcement, three people posing as police officers forced their way into the home of Raul Flores in Arivaca, Arizona, about 10 miles from the Mexican border, on May 30. They shot and killed Flores and his nine-year-old daughter, and wounded Flores’ wife. The three, Shawna Forde, Jason Bush, and Albert Gaxiola, were arrested and charged last Thursday and Friday.

But here’s where it gets interesting: Forde’s brother, Merrill Metzger, has told the Arizona Daily Star that Forde had been talking recently about “starting a revolution against the United States government,” and had said she planned to recruit members of the Aryan Nations as part of a plan to rob drug cartels.

It sounds like Forde had started putting that plan into action. Bush, accused of being the triggerman in the killing, was also charged Friday in the 1997 murder of a sleeping Hispanic homeless man in Washington, reports the paper. According to law enforcement authorities in the state, Bush “has had long-standing ties to the Aryan Nations.” In 2003, they say, Bush moved to the Sandpoint area of northern Idaho, a historic center of white supremacist activity.

Guess that DHS report wasn’t so off after all, was it Rupert?

Theist Troll Provides Fodder; Laughs

In hate, kooks, troll on June 9, 2009 at 8:29 pm

Well it finally happened. I have a troll for Jesus. He has left comments on several of my posts attacking me, and other commenters. Here are the attacks made against me, and my responses in kind.


Chimps Probably Think Carlos Mencia is Funny

Troll: Ah, laughing…. the only sign of an immaterial soul finally crushed.
Wow, it’s finally over. A couple of thousands of years of religious belief down the tube because we see that monkeys can laugh.

Great reporting, The New Atheist!

The New Atheist: The laughing has nothing to do with the existence or nonexistence of a ‘soul’. I was citing it as further evidence of our evolution, and not of a divine creation. Did you even read the article before you commented? It is more likely you completely blocked out the most of the content and cherry picked what information you wanted in order to make your terrible, terrible point, par I’d say. Also, religion has been around for a lot more than “a couple of thousands of years“. It is only yours that has been around for two thousand years. However, since yours has no more validity than any other – past or present – I consider them one in the same. Since when does a long standing belief in something make it true (flat Earth, terra-centric universe, a moon made of cheese)? Also, I’m not a reporter; I’m a commentator, and there is a significant difference.


Christianity: Suppressing Knowledge for 2000 Years…

Troll: So in The New Atheist’s view: one man’s position can be generalized to all.
Again, bravo with your work here.

Hey, if I can find a nutty atheist who is for infanticide can I paint you with that generalization as well?

Just checking.

The New Atheist: This isn’t one man’s opinion, it was the action of the Christian Civil Liberties Union (they are for civil liberties as long as you aren’t gay, or an atheist). Just because one man leads it, doesn’t mean one man is the whole organization. Is the United States only one man because we elect a President to lead us? No. Further, there is a long history of Christians trying to withhold knowledge not only from their followers, but the public at large. This story is another great example. The Catholic Church abolished the Index Librorum Prohibitorum in 1966, and the church only apologized for the Galileo affair in 1992. I would say it is very reasonable to suggest the church has long sought to keep the wool over the peoples’ eyes to protect their own interests. Alhough, I admit I’m pretty surprised anyone would suggest burning books in the 21st century.

Atheists are constantly generalized as amoral, evil, angry (you said that yourself), sad, and/or stupid. In fact the only arguments against atheism are these go-to claims. I can’t tell you how many times we hear “oh, you must be angry at god,” or “if you are an atheist, why don’t you kill people,” or “Hitler was an atheist you know (he wasn’t).” Also, we are in the minority, which means those types of generalizations are far more likely to be accepted and believed by the public than anything any atheist has or will say.


12 Million Year Old Hominid With Modern Facial Features Found

Troll: The Bible can be infallible as well as correct. I don’t see why there is a big issue there.
Also, many Christians do accept some form of evolution. But how does any of the information here show that it is a fully blind process. That’s the point of contention. Not simply your misrepresentation…. but, as the old saying goes:

“Atheists will never change their beliefs because they are not based on reason, logic or common sense. Soit doesn’t matter how much eveidence you present them with, they will always point to their caricatures as their ultimate source of truth and the final word. For them it is reality.”

The New Atheist: Hmm, “infallible and correct” is pretty redundant, as they basically mean the same thing in the context you are using them. If something is infallible, doesn’t it then by definition have to be correct? Indeed it does. The controversy is not whether god had a hand in evolution; it is over whether evolution happened at all, and you know it. True, there are moderate Christians that will say they believe in evolution, and maybe some sort of divine guidance, but the fact is America is 76% Christian, and 39% of all Americans don’t believe in evolution. The only country with fewer believers in evolution is Turkey. Why is this? There is a deliberate and methodical campaign by Christians to snuff out science that doesn’t support their beliefs. How do they do this? By misrepresenting or ignoring the facts, or even flat out lying.

“Atheists will never change their beliefs because they are not based on reason, logic or common sense. Soit [SIC] doesn’t matter how much eveidence [SIC] you present them with, they will always point to their caricatures as their ultimate source of truth and the final word. For them it is reality.”

Really? You can’t be serious. Who said this anyways? I can’t seem to find it on the internet, so I’m going to assume it was Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, or maybe you just made it up and are misrepresenting it. This quote would make perfect sense if you removed a single ‘A’. Rebutting this quote isn’t worth my time.


You Are In a World of Shit When Hannity Calls You Sick, Souless and Twisted

Troll: Oh heavens no. You atheists? Angry? Why, I think this is quite the charming bunch. You only paint theists out to be morons who are too incapable of appreciating the faculties of reason that you could smack them over the head with evidence and they would blindly still go on believing their old beliefs.

TNA…. I’ve read through alot of your posts. Is this the bastion of atheist humility?

I don’t see how you have anything to complain about.

The New Atheist: I’m not sure what your comments have to do with the video posted here, but if you can’t see what my problem is then you have completely discredited yourself (even to a majority of fellow Christians). I have plenty to complain about! These people are clearly very angry, as they have chosen to spend their time attacking the families of dead soldiers, homosexuals, and everyone else outside their hate-filled church. You have decided to spend your time attacking me for complaining about them; who has the moral high ground here? The truth is, only a fringe theist could defend their actions. So well played my friend. I’ve never claimed to be a representative of all atheists, nor have I claimed to be humble. My writing is opinion, and I use sarcasm and satire to make my points.


One more thing: Every time you visit my page to troll me, you put another fraction of a cent into my amoral, baby eating pocket! Thanks for reading!

Your so stupid. How can you tell people there is no god. I can not wait to see you suffer greatly when you spend eternity in hell. I hope you die!!! I would kill you myself if I could. I’m sure no one would miss an arrogant jackass. Fuck you, reconsider your believes before you pay for them.

RESPONSE:

First, when you are calling someone stupid it would give your charge more credibility to use the correct spelling of your. It’s “you’re” in case you are unfamiliar. I’m sure the irony is lost on you, but I find it very funny that a Christian would wish death, or threaten death on anyone, doesn’t that seem a bit hypocritical? Further, your email address appears to be a family account! Who sends hate mail from a family email account? Better question, who even has a family email account? To quote a friend “…over protective Christian parents who don’t want their children to have privacy.” You’ve proven yourself to be a stupid, hypocritical, and LAME Christian, par for the course, I’d say. Oh, and also, I’m not going to change my “believes” either.
