Remember when this clown tried to build a conspiracy theory about how it was wrong to even try to run a trial for George Zimmerman after he murdered a kid in cold blood. I do.
Jack Cashill, American Birther:
Reggie Love and the Birth Certificate
Oh, birthers. So… you may be forgiven in thinking that the men upstairs would be having some gentle words downwards to op-dray the irther-bay it-shay now that the re-election of Obama has come to pass and it only serves to show the conservatives’ ass end to the world. And you’d be right. They are trying to stopper up the genie they’ve unleashed and running into the fundamental problem of all right-wing conspiracy theories.
They. Never. End. Still, nearly 20 years later, you get nutjobs whingeing about how Clinton used his secret Satanist mind-control powers to force a bunch of holy religious zealots to try and kill all their kids by setting their own treehouse on fire. Or the various crap about LBJ or FDR being secret communists or their being secret communist infiltrations everywhere responsible for everything progressive ever. Hell, some of them have been recycling old conspiracy theories about how women never had the mental capacity to handle voting or anything Progressive from the 20s. And the less said about the “War of Northern Aggression”, the better.
So, of course the nutbars allowed to run free and keep the Anti-christ Hunters all hot and bothered are still adding to their rich tapestry of denied reality where Obama and his time machine is responsible for everything bad in the last 60 years or beyond. Because he’s black and President and Vampire President for Unlife Robert E. Lee wouldn’t agree to that without secret commie Satanist brainwashing and if he we can just make him illegitimate maybe he’ll go away and stop forcing us to accept his existence and therefore the existence of black people in positions of power.
Needless to say, the strain is making them a little… shall we say, more obvious than usual.
Shorter (or the last port before Jungle):
- Nuh uh, nope, no way. He’s black therefore couldn’t have been born. I don’t care that his birth certificate is googleable and has been for years. I am a skeptic and therefore I always deny the evidence of my own fucking eyes. And besides everyone is in on it. You saw. He’s hiding how black he was cause how could he have been elected if everyone could see he was black! It’s a fix, I tell you! A FIX!
Which, okay, that’s been their default mode since… well, since they began, so what else is new?
Most of the talk about the recently released Reggie Love interview centers on Love’s admission that he and President Obama played cards — Sp***s to be precise — during the Osama bin Laden raid.
Oh wow. They aren’t even bothering to hide this shit.
Sp***s to be precise
Of course it is. And with the little asterixes trying to be PC, not bothering to note that it’s only a slur when the FIRST FUCKING PLACE YOU GO TO WHEN YOU HEAR THAT IS A SLUR! And besides, this shit is almost always just made-up horseshit in the first place.
You can just smell how pissed they are that the entire world simply refuses to acknowledge that Obama is unfit and illegitimate to lead for being black. That he is fundamentally inhuman for being black. That they long to shout every racial slur from the top of the mountain to force him back in his place and make him resign from his post mumbling “yes massa, yes”.
I have had far too many people in my life do horrible things to me at one point or another, but I don’t think I’ll ever hate someone as strongly and piercingly as they do.
during the Osama bin Laden raid.
And this is the other delicious cherry on the Sunday. You can tell how much it eats them up inside that not only did Obama shut up all the justifications for our unending War on Terror horseshit, but also revealed the con for what it is.
And they are even more obsessed with getting revenge for Democrats noting and mocking Bush’s deer-in-the-headlights response to 9/11, continuing to read a children’s book rather than make any motion to respond in any way like a President to an emergency situation.
Oh yeah, liberals, well, your President did something innocuous too while a big incident was happening, so there! Which not only is well, no. No, on every level including the bizarre “so what even if it was true that Obama killed some dead time in the mission he had little direct control while things were on task or while things were being prepared”.
But also colossally misses the fucking point of why Bush’s hesitation was mocked in the first place. It was an immediate disaster needing immediate response and Bush simply couldn’t handle it. Handle anything real. It showed the same sort of impulsive and lost principle that guided most of his responses afterwards. Defaulting to wars, rollbacks of civil rights, and so on that he and his gang wanted to do initially and riding over an unearned gravitas for barely being able to give a half-coherent speech to a nation wholly unused to being attacked and willing to swallow anything.
Just like the wingnuts can’t seem to understand liberals’ issues with Bush’s vacations. The way he used them to preform displays of “masculinity” to a preening press force while completely failing to ever display any actual gonads or care for the death and destruction going on at his decision for known lies. Especially at a time when his supporters were constantly questioning the masculinity of military personnel complaining about his abuses of the troops and the mission.
Which leads to an even more unsettling fact.
These fuckers don’t seem to understand that the terrorism thing wasn’t a fucking game. Some convenient little bit of fluff that let them play Junior Fascists and maybe buy them a few more decades of delay in fixing anything in this broken country.
To them, the terrorists are an excuse. Something to let them get revenge against muslims for believing in a different God that is just weird enough to seem plaintively false and thus raise uncomfortable questions about their own religion. Something to let them get revenge against liberals for caring about civil liberties and that annoying Bill of Rights that we’ll pretend to give a fuck about only when decrying people looking questioningly at our smoking guns. Something to let them get revenge on the World for not letting them celebrate the fall of the Soviet Union by creating a US Lead Fascist State over the World, running it according to the interests of the Plutocrats within.
And considering all the blood spilled, all the lives lost, all the people tortured and murdered for this little “game” and the revenge for petty imagined “slights”, that might be the most insulting thing of all.
Cause they don’t care about terrorism. If they did, they wouldn’t so gleefully terrorize minority groups and cheer and entrench what tools they can to make it easier. And they wouldn’t dehumanize everyone they can while whistling to their lunatic, heavily armed base, “hey, that person is an unperson and it wouldn’t be murder to kill them and besides they are probably Satan”.
And they wouldn’t be pushing conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory, making a psychotic break with reality the “price” for “being a tribe member in good standing” safe from the implicit threat.
So fuck these jokers.
They aren’t “quaint”. They are a mirror into everything that is the rot at the center of the conservative apple.
