CONTINUING COVERAGE: Eliminationism In Crisis

SNN NIGHTLY NEWS REPORT

Aired October 26, 2007 – 08:32 ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

Clif: Good afternoon. This is Clif, reporting for SNN. We’re here at a Starbucks in in Los Angeles with Charles Johnson. Johnson has generously left his fortified bunker in an undisclosed location in the LA area to do an exclusive interview with us.

Thanks for agreeing to chat with us, Charles. Just a moment ago you ordered a mocha frappacino grande. Does it bother you to drink something with an Italian name given the failure of Italy to address the swarming-Muslim-horde issue in Florence and other Italian cities?

Charles: That’s Italian? Shit, I was positive it was Spanish.

Clif: Before we get to your well-publicized feud with Pamela Geller Oshry, I’d like to ask you about your career as a guitarist. Why did you give up that career to become a blogger?

Charles: 9/11, of course, changed everything. Afterwards, the fear that an Islamofascist would kidnap me, rape me and cut off my johnson was overwhelming. My hands were trembling all the time. Have you ever tried to play the guitar when you were pissing your jeans and your hands were trembling faster than Pammie’s personal vibrator?

Clif: Well, it seems that 9/11 has had the opposite effect on Pam. She has just launched her own music career with a music video entitled “My Sharia.” Let’s take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

(END VIDEOTAPE)

Charles: I don’t know what’s worse, her singing or her blogging. I’d sooner listen to an imam chanting the Koran through his nose than listen to that again.

Clif: Perhaps you can explain to our viewers what happened between you and Pamela to cause your previously cordial relationship to break into a public cage match.

Charles: It started when Ms. Fancythong went gallivanting off to Europe to meet with a bunch of former Nazi collaborators about all those jihadis in Europe. Now she thinks that she knows more about sending these towel-headed Allah-worshiping camel-jockeys back to their dung heaps than I do.

Clif: Are you concerned that things might escalate beyond a blog war and a taunting music video war? After all, not too long ago, a salesman was shot dead at the car dealership owned by Pam and her husband. I should add that no charges have been brought in the shooting.

Charles: That doesn’t scare me one bit. Every day I am personally the target of the vast Islamofascist conspiracy that wants to silence me. Just by coming here, I’m risking my life. Every trip to the In-N-Out Burger could be my last.

Clif: Last week, in what appeared to be an effort at rapprochement, Pam apologized for calling you a tool of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. She did, however, stick by her position that you are an idiot.

Charles: What she says bounces off me and sticks to her.

Clif: Are you going to redirect her links to LGF to your “You Are A Idiot” page, the way you do to links from Sadly, No!?

Charles: I don’t do that.

Clif: Thanks, Charles. S,N!, back to you at SNN studios.

    I recoiled and had to abort video before the first verse was over. Some things are just not meant for saturdays. I’ll wait for the reviews to find out how it ends…

    You evil bastards.

    Why, why, why … do you torment us with the videos of Pam singing and dancing? You knew that we would click over, if for no other reason, than to see what kind of person still has thigh-high black patent leather boots in their closets (and the other purposes said bondage-special boots have been put to in the past should open a whole new window into the sexual practices of Ms. Oshry … any bets on the over/under for how much time John Bolten spent hanging upside-down in Oshry’s basement before he managed to mutter “Red! Red! Dammit, red!” around the ball gag?)

    So yeah, I clicked over, I admit it, my name is wordyeti (Cue ALL: “Hi, wordyeti”) and I can’t turn away from this christawful trainwreck. How long will it be until Pammycakes is facing a child-custody judge like Britney out here in L.A.? Exhibit A would have to be the kids’ testimony as to how long they were forced to practice their little finger-snapping do-si-do while sPam guzzled her way thru a litre of Cap’n Morgan…

    Seriously – what causes someone to post something that hackneyed on the web? I know that the bar for entertainment is getting pretty low at this point, but c’mon … that’s at the same level as the landlord in the ivy tutu doing his interpretive dance in The Big Lebowski.

    Even better, if you go to the comments page on Pammy’s blog, you get treated to the lovely discussion taking place there. Let’s all listen in, shall we?

    I don’t see LGF coming around, unfrotunately. They can’t withstand being called “Nazi” or “Racist” and will do anything to avoid such attacks. So LGF is a school at best, but such a school yields graduates who can step up to adult challenges. In Holland, the mark of combat-readiness is when you say to yourself “I am a racist”. It is a declaration of independence, that you will be free from the Leftist taunts that are meant to bind you into inaction.

    Nice to know that the sturmtruppen are pulling on their lederhosen and pledging allegiance to Pam. Wonder where that particular path is going to lead? Somewhere unpleasant, I think, if the “graduates” of the LGF school do what all graduates are supposed to … move on to bigger and better things.

    Never thought I’d see the day when the commenters at LGF were derided as not being venemous and race-baiting enough.

    It’s kinda like seeing someone bang on Reinhard Heydrich for being too soft and fuzzy. Sheesh!

    By all that is holy and good and sacred, that video needs to disappear forever and be as if it never existed.

    I must know: Is Charles Johnson in Fresno (as previously implied) or L. A? ‘Cause if he’s here in L. A., and there’s going to be an Ass-o-palooza here next wknd. (apparently @ whichever Hooters is closest to the mostest morons) the harmonic disconvergence may be too much, & I might have to take my chances hitchhiking out of town.

    Also, decadent Easterners, what’s w/ all the In-N-Out Burger references? Is
    it a shorthand to communicate your hipness & knowledge of our fair state? Is it sheer jealousy? You all should be jealous!!

    BTW, Pam’s version of this song is only slightly worse than the Ben Stiller version of it. For any of you Donks feeling all nostalgic for the Clinton 90s, this will cure you of it really fast.

    Holy shit, I just read Pamela’s “My Sharia” lyrics (see the “music video” link). They are awesome.

    If for any reason you’re having trouble watching the embedded video, she also has it at YouTube.

  34. inkadu said,

    In-N-Out was one of the greatest reasons to live in Cali. I went to Vegas a couple of years ago. First thing I did was run to the easternmost In-N-Out in the US and order one Animal Style.

    Fatburger was the other peak of the burger chain range. I never thought a fried egg on a burger could be so artery-clogging good.

    One of my cats was on the desk watching me when that clip started. She looked afraid and ran away. She now will not come back up on the desk.

    On an even funnier note… Muslims Against Sharia took the time to comment on my blog… 3 times. I mention this because Pammy is a prominent member of said organization …. yes you read that right.

    Burgers be damned (White Castle makes the only one that matters in any case), the important issue here is that Charles Johnson is a God among men. Not quite as big of a God as Robert Spencer, but still, extremely Godlike!

    Now I’m not suggesting to you that if you pray to the great Charles Johnson, your wishes will come true, but then again, maybe it’s time someone tried it!

  50. Kevin said,

    In-N-Out burgers are consistently voted the best fast food burgers in the State of California by odds of more than 2 to 1. And I sure as hell didn’t watch my buddies die face down in the muck to eat at a burger joint based on Aryan Feudalism.

    Oops! Sorry Clif. You get the credit. I forget that some of the posters on this site aren’t Gavin, or at least claim not to be. I have to complain about something, since I hate liberals and all they stand for, so I’ll say you probably should have darkened the slate a little bit (ctrl-L, slide to the right) and put in some kind of shadow to make it fit in better.

    But in all honesty, it is an excellent piece of work, and I’m just nit-picking because of your progressive views. I will deny this though. It’s part of my vast right-wing conspiracy upbringing.

    You think Gavin is better at photoshop? I’m confused! He got destroyed by Six Meat Buffet while they weren’t even paying attention, and I’m pretty sure they were drunk too. I, with my exceedingly lame p-shop skills, routinely humiliate him, photoshoppically.

These people knew that when they moved there. It doesn’t make any sense to build in such a obviously high risk area, but they did anyways.

You put your left arm in, you put your left arm out, you put your left arm in and pull the lever for a liberal democratic who doesn’t care about america! … and that’s what it’s all about.

    Hey, Kevin, how’d you do in the fires? Were you in a threatened region? Or were you completely away? What do you think of what’s going on?

    g & other Southland Sadlies:

    Ace is going to be in the Los Angeles area in early November, which is just a week away. I’m looking at dates and venues, but tentatively I’m leaning towards having the event on the evening of Saturday, November 3rd or Sunday, November 4th.

    I’m mostly familiar with sports bars on the west side, and I’m particularly fond of Yankee Doodles in Santa Monica. Other options include Q’s Billiards in West L.A. or some place called “The Parlor in Santa Monica” which sounds ghey but is supposed to be a pretty cool new sports bar.

    It’ll be up to Ace whether we post the event site here or send emails to people we know are coming. If I remember correctly there was some issue about unwanted company last time.

    Scroll their comments & perceive their utter lameness, as far as bar choices. But it does sound as if they may keep it a secret, as they are of course scared of us & “teh ghey.”

    And Santa Barbarans should be aware there is a YAF(?) meeting there, which is what attracts Ass 0f Hades to our glorious side of This Great Nation of Ours™ in the first place. Check the link, you’ve been warned.

    Link from someone else on previous/earlier thread. Thanks, person whose name I forget. And to all the other little people.

    1) You’ve seen my love for White Castle.

    2) You’re aware of my utter disdain for FatBurger.

    So how can you not know the answer to your questions?

    “how’d you do in the fires?”
    -I did as good as anyone not involved in the fires. I wasn’t there.
    “Were you in a threatened region?”
    -Not even close.
    “Or were you completely away?”
    -I guess. Could someone be ‘partially’ away?
    “What do you think of what’s going on?”
    -I think some fires are burning, and they should be put out.

    Be serious, you liberal hippie types aren’t going with the idea that those fires are some type of rightwing thingamabob, are you?

    Were you in a threatened region? Or were you completely away? What do you think of what’s going on?”

    Yankee Doodles in Santa Monica.

    Geez. That’s fucking lame.

    Yankee Doodles

    I’ve walked by this place on the Promenade since I moved to LA in ’96. Never had the desire to go it – it always looked totally lame. Here’s a nice encomium from Yelp:

    yankee doodles stopped being cool a looooong time ago folks.

    we’re talking 1986 looooong time ago here. but, oooooh, leave it to the frat crowds to commit every conceivable faux paux known to human kind. god bless them. or smite them. whichever.

    this establishment is broken down into two sections. the sports bar upstars filled with plenty of young fillies to take your order and then there is the underground floor filled with so many pool and air hockey tables you’d think you’ve accidentally stumbled upon michael vick’s living room. there are also a large array of video games for the video game enthusiams.

    the food is well, god, don’t make have to go there. it’s cheap sports bar food. eat at your own cholesterol level’s own risk. but if there is one saving grace to this place it’s that it’s good for large number of groups to come and play pool and have some cheap beers.

    granted the place isn’t super crowded in order to be able to do so.

    Well, they’ll fit right in.

    There are laws about that sort of thing here in California, Kevin. I know things are a lot looser in the state where you live, as it’s legal to marry barnyard animals & your sister, but after the Okies swept through here in the ’30s we had to put a stop to that sort of thing.

    You know, I’ve got to hand it to Kevin. Other trolls just fly by and drop their talking points and leave – I’m talking about YOU, Gary Ruppert.

    But Kevin, he persists. He lingers. He hangs in there when weaker trolls would flee. Oh, the Garys of the world have plenty of demands on their time. They have to jump and follow the whims of their Rovian masters. But Kevin, on the other hand, he’s the silent one, the one nobody notices, the fellow off in the corner, carefully drafting his doctrinal talking points out of the spotlight.

    Yes, it’s true that Kevin’s posts are nonsensical, sophomoric, and read as though they were stitched together but disjointed talking points. But with the amount of time he spends here, can we expect continuity? Can we expect it to make sense? Can we expect logic? Let’s just appreciate the sheer volume of Kevin’s efforts, and applaud him for it.

    No, Kevin’s overlords may overlook him; may think he’s a slow starter, may underestimate him, may laugh behind his back while lauding the superstars like Gary, but we here at Sadly, No can appreciate the time and dedication Kevin brings to his trolling.

    Of course, it helps that he has no distractions to dilute his efforts at trolling. The human comforts of friendship, family, and career ambitions take a back seat to trolling, for Kevin.

    I, for one, truly admire the fact that Kevin deigns to spend as much time as he does here on a Saturday night, when there must be so many more people clamoring for his brilliance, his scintillating intellect, his jolly company. We are truly grateful for Kevin’s decision to spend his valuable time here, dropping his pearls of wisdom and wit.

    Nope. They realize they haven’t said anything funny at ALL. They’re liberals for cripes sake! Nothing funny comes from that breed. But they realize that some crazy conservative visiting this site punches those visit numbers through the roof, and that’s money. I’m that crazy conservative! :)

    Admittedly, it won’t be long before even a silly liberal realizes how dumb he/she is for even listening to me, a crazy conservative, who likes pie significantly less than mikey, but it’s been like 3 + months… maybe I’m overestimating the silly liberal mind?

    No, Kevin’s overlords may overlook him

    Actually, maybe Kevin is the Senior Troll in Gary’s department. See, Gary has a limit on how much trolling he can do. When he’s more seasoned, he’ll be able to troll more, and get a penny or two more when they release him from the beginning troll probationary period. Kevin, however, is not only a more seasoned troll, he’s the top notch troll in Gary’s group. Given the level of high-grade snark that Sadly, No! puts out, it’s quite possible that Gary had to call in a troll higher up on the chain.

    Now, this is not imply that Kevin is actually better or anything, just that maybe he’s higher up in the Rovian Underpaid Mexican Troll Unit.

    His wife’s more than happy if he’s in the basement trolling, as long as he’s done his chores. Remember how Reagan called his wfe “Mommie?” Same Freudian sort of deal w/ Kev & his better half. To wit:

    I’m totally digging on this Spartan lady. Rent ’300′ today! She says cool things like “Come back with your shield, or on it!” Mine says stuff like “Did you take out the garbage?” or “Empty the dishwasher.” Frankly, it’s just not the same.

    I almost expected some mother-in-law jokes, but further consideration suggests that Mrs. Kevin knows her way around a cast-iron skillet for more than bacon-frying purposes. She’d pretty much have to, to keep Kevin in line.

    Does anyone else think the name “In-N-Out Burger” is a little, um, indecent?
    I mean, I have an In-N-Out Burger myself.

    When I moved to CA in the mid 80s a young couple on my side of the apartment complex had an In-N-Out Burger bumper sticker on their Toyota pickup. They had surgically removed the ‘B’ and the trailing ‘r’ from the Burger part and did a seamless splice to the In-N-Out part. It was pretty funny.

    The also had the first Toyota I’d seen with everything but the “YO” removed from the emblem. I decided then and there I had to get to know those people.

    I think “In-N-Out Burger” is more obscene than “In-n-Out Urge,” but I like the explicit deliberateness that comes from taking letters off bumper stickers.

    I’ve seen one “Yo” truck, and it made me happy.

    Is there a Canadian chain called, “In-n-Oot Burger”?

    Boy, this reminds me of all those bloody wars between Intelligent Design people and folks who that the “Designer” was a Christian God. Man, those wars were just effin’ BRUTAL. Annihilating muslims has nothing to do with white supremacy.

    When I got to the US the first thing I noticed was the diversity and the non issue of “integration”, which in Europe is all the talk. In Europe elites regard foreigners as poor idiots that need to be coddled, in America they are regarded as worthy individuals that need to prove themselves in a society of equals.

    This just shows you how incredibly complex the current political climate is in the US, how old categories are irrelevant.

    OK you have:

    1.) Right wing neoconservatives (Bush, Cheney, Condi Rice, AIPAC, etc.) They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. Put Charles Johnson in this category.

    2.) Moderate neoconservatives (Hillary, the DLC): They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. They’re just not as rude about it.

    3.) Traditional liberals (Krugman, Edwards and Obama, Howard Dean, etc.) They don’t really want uncritical support for Israel and total war in the Middle East but they’d really, really like to ignore the whole thing for right now and talk about social security.

    4.) Leftists and Left liberals (Kucinich, Answer, etc.) Who cares. Nobody listens to them and they hate one another anyway.

    5.) Christian Fascists: They sort of have an alliance with Group number 1. They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. But they’re also concerned about gay marriage and abortion. They’re afraid of a possible candidate (like Giuliani or Hillary) who can bring groups #1 and #2 together.

    which brings us to

    6.) Anglo Redneck Fascists (Stormfront, David Duke, Pat Buchanan, a certain subset of Ron Paul followers). They hate Israel and don’t want war in the Middle East. It’s not the Arabs that are the problem. It’s the Mexicans.

    7.) Flat out Jewish fascists (Kahane, Massada2000, etc.): Obviously Pam Geller belongs here. They hate group #6. Think group #1 is going soft on them. Think group #2 has been soft for a long time. Hate groups 3 and 4.

    That leaves them an alliance with group #5 (who cares if the Christian fascists think you’re going to hell. As long as they support Israel and hate Muslims, they’re fine).

    But Europe has no group number 5. It has group

    #8: The Euro anti-immigrant right. Group 7 is hoping they hate Muslims blacks and liberals more than they hate Jews. Charles Johnson really has no problem with this group BUT

    He wants to find his way back to respectability. After all, that Memri/AIPAC money won’t last forever and some day he might even have to get a job or work with liberals. So he’s counting on your guys to give him a way back in. Picking a fight with the Atlas Shrugs bitch is perfect. Look for Chuckles the Clown to start kissing up to Hillary and arguing for an alliance of groups #1 and groups #2

    Since a good part of the liberal “netroots’ will support Hillary, put them in group #2 by default. Therefore, Chuckles wants to be your friend.

    Wow. That, was, like, totally insightful!

    I would just like to add the Christians hate the Jews just as much as the next guy — but they ally with them confident in the knowledge that Jesus will come and slay them all once they’ve worked their hook-nosed ways as part of the End Times prophecy.

    And as the Christian Fascists go, they seem to be supporting Giullani in weirdly large numbers for a cross-dressing gay co-habitator. It seems that half “the base” is motivated by social issues, the other half is more concerned with making sure that the United States is God’s own mighty Empire heralding the return of the messiah or some crazy crap. Giuliani, for all his “social liberal” leanings, seems more likely to create a police state which would suit the Christian fascists just fine, because once they have the fascism, the Christian part is sure to follow, and it’s a lot easier to just jail homosexuals as terrorists than try to get the supreme court to rule on anything in their favor.

    It’s fun to be unhinged.

    I guess what I’m saying is that for evangelicals, what is important is that there is RIGHT and there is WRONG and WRONG needs to be PUNISHED. Often this turns into looking like they care about values, but what they care about sadism and top-down enforced morality. The nature of that morality is almost inconsequential.

    Hence, Giuliani is tied with Huckabee among evangelicals in the bible belt.

    Capelza:

    Why are those girl’s (her daughters I assume) dressed like little Taliban girls?

    My understanding is that orthodox jewish women (and maybe girls especially) are supposed to cover their heads. Unlike jokes about covering the ankle, there is something to be said for jewish women covering their hair, because black curly hair drives me absolutely nuts. And it doesn’t have to be black curly jewish hair. It could be romanian hair. Or italian hair. In fact, if I raped someone, it would be because they had curly hair. And, you know what? The hair would be responsible for a full 9/10′s of my desire. So it’s good they keep it covered. And its also great to hear conservative Judaism make such a strong stand for the rights of women to be free and equal members in society, including being able to become rabbis, readithe torah at synagogue, and putting clarinets in their mouths during Klezmer concerts. Really, truely, Pam Atlas is feminist par excellence. That’s french, by the way.

    Postmodernism: It’s going to be a sad couple of years.

    I realized this week that nobody during the Third Reich was living “in the Third Reich” the way we understand it today. They were living in the present, unaware that the future would bring the stark horror of their situation into clear light. I worry that in these days Americans are living in the dim beginnings of that time — and I see glimpses of a totalatarian movement coming, the pieces being placed on the board (media, military, corporations, private militias, government agencies). I don’t know if I’m crazy, because, fortunately, I think most people get to live through events like these only once in their lives. But I can’t help look at the trend from Eisenhower’s “military-industrial complex,” to Nixon’s pre-mature power grab, to the now almost completely unrestricted power of the imperial presidency (but only when supported by the VRWC) that is essentially unchallenged by the “opposition party” or the general public (see ‘media’ above), coupled with the knowledge of what happened to Kerry, Gore, and W. Clinton (again, see ‘media) and think, “Fuck, it’s time I started establishing connections in Canada, before things get worse.”

    And then, you know, I know I probably wont get shipped off to Gitmo. But the economy may very well completely collapse. And living in the United States — well, it just wont be fun anymore. Sure, I like my unrestricted access to porn, but I like to sleep at night, too.

    Not gonna play this game. Identifying, labeling, defining groups, even if the groups are more political than ethnic or sectarian may well have some value in handicapping our near-term future, but it feels like nothing so much as a long way around to hate.

    Racists, people who fear diversity and loath tolerance, people who’s only solution to social problems is killing, these are our problems. No matter who represents this worldview, they are the enemies of peace, progress and prosperity. Our homeless, our sick, our working poor cannot just wait for the government to deign to throw token dollars at our overwhelming domestic problems while they squander our real wealth on imperial fever dreams.

    Nope. It’s a beautiful, sparkly, crisp fall morning, bright blue skies and orange leaves. A football game playing softly in the background. Huevos Rancheros planned for a late brunch with a pitcher of Sangria made with a split of champagne for the festive sparkle. I have a full-blown case of OD (Outrage Dysfunction). The world is sliding intractably into global catastrophe on all fronts, military, economic, climate. It’s important, and we need to work with all our power to change it.

    But this morning? I think I’ll just take the morning off from all the hate and horror. I’ll find some peace and some beauty in the world around me, and for at least a couple hours I’ll shut out the misery. Like Scarlett, I’ll think about it tomorrow…

    For those of you playing the home game, this is what “Oh, shit, I’ve been caught dead-on to lying. Stall for time while franticly searching for scapegoat” sounds like.
    I’d like to focus on the, “Oh, I’ve had my identity stolen.” part of this exchange. There are two possible reasons for this here. Neither is good, and both can be applied to many, many, many officials in this administration.
    1: As noted before, the good Col. is throwing more red hearings the a juggling clown, racking his brain to find someone else to blame for his incredible blunder. This is pathetic and I would say makes him a good candidate for redeployment to, say, NORAD.
    2: Some actually HAS stolen his identity to the point where they have ACCESS TO HIS OFFICIAL MILITARY EMAIL ACCOUNT. This doesn’t bother him at all. This makes him so blatantly inept and incompetent to the point where he should be relieved of command, simply to preserve the safety of those currently under his command.

    So, to sum up as my HS music teacher would love to say, “You’re either lying or you’re stupid; which is it?”

    Hi, Some Guy. Yeah, I’ve been reading that hole story, too. It’s very strange.

    In connection with that, I’m still a little puzzled why the Beauchamp story is such a big deal, too. Why has the right invested so much effort in proving that some guy’s personal memoir about trivial things is not true?

    Simple, g. It’s become very obvious. Right Blogistan’s greatest victory, their most memorable moment, the one time they actually DID something was the Rather memo. You know, kerning, typwriters, Dan resigning in disgrace.

    Huge victory for Right Blogistan (yeah, I know, it’s pathetic, but when you been wrong, hugely irreparably wrong over and over again, every time, that’s what constitutes your greatest victory). And the mindless tools who populate Right Blogistan, the malkin thing and Ace of PlaDoh and the like, just keep trying to get another win. So they think debunking something they consider part of the Left’s narrative is their path to victory after victory. And while nobody with any sense really thinks they’ve successfully debunked Beauchamp, they feel like if they keep picking at that scab, somebody will get him discharged or imprisoned or something and they’ll be right again. And they really want to know what that feels like…

    Sorry, g. I was overly proud of myself for figuring that one out. Anyway, I suspect the army cares because they are cultivating a special relationship with Right Blogistan and the warbloggers, and by helping them toss Beauchamp under the Bradley Fighting Vehicle they are cementing their relationship, washing in the blood of the victim, if you will…

    “This just shows you how incredibly complex the current political climate is in the US, how old categories are irrelevant.

    OK you have:

    1.) Right wing neoconservatives (Bush, Cheney, Condi Rice, AIPAC, etc.) They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. Put Charles Johnson in this category.

    2.) Moderate neoconservatives (Hillary, the DLC): They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. They’re just not as rude about it.

    3.) Traditional liberals (Krugman, Edwards and Obama, Howard Dean, etc.) They don’t really want uncritical support for Israel and total war in the Middle East but they’d really, really like to ignore the whole thing for right now and talk about social security.

    4.) Leftists and Left liberals (Kucinich, Answer, etc.) Who cares. Nobody listens to them and they hate one another anyway.

    5.) Christian Fascists: They sort of have an alliance with Group number 1. They want total and uncritical support for Israel and total war in the MIddle East. But they’re also concerned about gay marriage and abortion. They’re afraid of a possible candidate (like Giuliani or Hillary) who can bring groups #1 and #2 together.

    which brings us to

    6.) Anglo Redneck Fascists (Stormfront, David Duke, Pat Buchanan, a certain subset of Ron Paul followers). They hate Israel and don’t want war in the Middle East. It’s not the Arabs that are the problem. It’s the Mexicans.

    7.) Flat out Jewish fascists (Kahane, Massada2000, etc.): Obviously Pam Geller belongs here. They hate group #6. Think group #1 is going soft on them. Think group #2 has been soft for a long time. Hate groups 3 and 4.

    That leaves them an alliance with group #5 (who cares if the Christian fascists think you’re going to hell. As long as they support Israel and hate Muslims, they’re fine).

    But Europe has no group number 5. It has group

    #8: The Euro anti-immigrant right. Group 7 is hoping they hate Muslims blacks and liberals more than they hate Jews. Charles Johnson really has no problem with this group BUT

    He wants to find his way back to respectability. After all, that Memri/AIPAC money won’t last forever and some day he might even have to get a job or work with liberals. So he’s counting on your guys to give him a way back in. Picking a fight with the Atlas Shrugs bitch is perfect. Look for Chuckles the Clown to start kissing up to Hillary and arguing for an alliance of groups #1 and groups #2

    Since a good part of the liberal “netroots’ will support Hillary, put them in group #2 by default. Therefore, Chuckles wants to be your friend.” Wow,just,Wow.Sadly hiring?

    October 29, 2007 at 2:14

    Ahh, but you see, I’m using the mikey system.

    Look. Baseball is entertainment (sorry – stop me if you heard this rant). Manny is entertaining. The hair, the way he wears his uniform, the way he approaches his bid-ness. Manny is beyond awesome. Did you see him flip the batting helmet off as he rounded second last nite, brad? That was pure beauty. This is the 21st century. We can’t buy superstars like clemente and mays. Nope. That just ain’t gonna sell today.

    Manny. The way he wears his uniform. The way he does his job. His bosses hate him, but they need him. The fans wonder when he goes out that door in the middle of the inning. I LOVE it. And nobody can say he’s a dog. He does his job, and he delivers, over and over again.

    Thing is, he recognizes, maybe more than even tradition, that it’s a team sport. He understands he can do his job, kick ASS, and the Sox might still lose. And the thing is, he GETS that it’s just a game. You try to win, and if you lose, it’s ok.

    If there’s anything that bothers me about this team, it’s the payroll. I hate the idea of being able to buy the pennant. That’s the main reason I’m not a yankees fan. But with characters like Ortiz and Manny, and the rookies, and the closer, and the bullpen, this team is just easier to root for.

  235. leo durocher said,

    The way Manny flipped his batting helmet as he ran the basepath was sufficient to throw his stride off just enough to get thrown out at home. That’s flair?

    Oh, that he tokes up in the Green Monster mid-game is indeed something to love about Manny. If he wasn’t a Red Sock, he’d be among my fav players, for many of the same reasons you mention.

    October 29, 2007 at 2:42

    Hell yeah.

    And don’t forget the sunglasses that play MP3s. He GETS it. He knows he’s worth 25 million dollars for his hitting, and he’s not going to stop living because of it.

    If you can’t dig the freedom and power living in the same place, the market and the performance, the act and the delivery, you’re trying to see baseball as something it simply is NOT anymore. There are no Micky Mantles anymore. Derek Jeter is the last pure company superstar. The rest is pure entertainment, performance as a function of payroll.

    I have nothing against baseball as performance art. And if you had said that Manny was the perfect entertainer in baseball, I might have agreed with you. But you wrote that he may very well be the perfect baseball player. He is a great hitter. Average in every other category.

  242. mikey said,

    October 29, 2007 at 3:42

    So the player goes in and there’s an empty seat in the alto section, right next to Trane. He looks over to the tenor section and there’s Coleman. He looks over at the horn section and there’s Clifford Brown. He looks down at the charts on his stand, and they’re written by Duke. He turns to Trane and he says -”This is unbelievable. This really IS heaven!”

    Trane says, “Yeah, well, it’s OK, I guess. There’s one problem, though.”

    But it IS rather zen, isn’t it? First, the Nazis were the enemy, and the Communists were our ally. Then, the communists were our enemy, and the Arab extremists were our ally. Now, Arab extremists are our enemy, and who’s our ally? The Nazis.

    Some Guy, that’s some comment: you’ve summed up nicely the (a) historical blindness, (b) capacity for hatin’, and (c) absolute bone-deep stupid on show at Chez Pammy.

    I still can’t get my head around the idea that an aggressively Jewish woman could ever ever ever, in any of the infinite possible universes, consider allying with neo-nazis. That’s so like a mouse saying “Yeah, I hang with cats, ‘cos they hate rats, see”. Just the apogee of stupid.

    Quite apart from anything else, isn’t she afraid of being laughed at? I wonder what her newest best buddies are saying behind her back. Not to mention the rest of the world.

    Who knows, it might even alienate John Bolton. Then she’ll have no ‘tash to ride.

    The fact is, the so-called “nazis” and people like Charles, Pam and I are all united against Muslims, which does not make any of us Nazis, we are just patriots in defense of the heartland and homeland we love. If the Europeans were more vigilant, they would not have been invaded by the caliphate to the point where they are changing the laws (like in France) to outlaw Christians and Jews. I think we should deport anyone born Muslim and give the others ONE CHANCE to recant if they are to stay. Otherwise, those that live by great curved swords will die by hunger strike, fitting, really.

    That’s nice Gary.

    Q. What’s the difference between a violin and a viola?

    A. Nothing, the violinist’s head is just that much bigger.

    I offended a real violinist with that one.

    Not to run your ethnic cleansing for you, Fake Gary, but shouldn’t we give those who are born Muslim one chance to recant? After all, they never had a choice to begin with. They might even chose to be American, and if not, you can deport them later.

    Converts are the ones who have shown themselves to be premeditated members of anon-patriotic faith. But then, I’m an amateur, what do I know?

    That sounds pretty serious. Hows about a link or some proof, please?

    Evidence would indicate that Pam-ela is utterly impervious to mockery. As she is to logic. And irony.

    Rob,
    Do you really believe that when a moron like you repeats a lie a few times it becomes truth? Have yo tried saying “I can fly” a few time and jumping off the roof? Try, see if it works.
