And speaking of intellectual degeneracy…

The fact that P. Loady is employed by anybody– because let’s face it, he isn’t even qualified to work as the Guy Who Scrapes Dead Animals off the Street- is a national embarrassment:

Palmer is surely smart enough to know that fascism is a more complicated subject than he makes it sound. “I know John Mackey, John Mackey is a friend of mine, and he’s no fascist,” is a pretty vapid argument, to the extent it’s an argument at all. It’s even dumber as a retort to a book Palmer’s never read. Indeed, one gets the sense reading his post or some of my libertarian-reader email, that because Mackey is a libertarian, and perhaps because he’s a libertarian sugar daddy, anything having to do with him, Whole Foods or the organic food fetish is beyond criticism. Palmer might want to read, for starters, the writings of Ludwig Klages, Hitler’s Table Talk, The Nazi War on Cancer or How Green Were the Nazis before he flies off the handle like that.

Dr. Loadpants has just made the argument that liberals and Nazis are the same because they both support eating healthy food and want to cure cancer. This is fucking embarrassing, people. When some smarter alien species studies human history long after we’ve wiped ourselves out, they’ll point to the publication of Liberal Fascism as the moment when we humans started becoming too fucking stupid to do anything but subsist on our own toenail clippings. Unbelievable.

But you forget, Brad…..

HITLER WAS A VEGETARIAN OMGWTFBBQ!!!!!11111ELEVENTYONE!!!!!!! What more proof do you need?

(Incidentally, I love this old canard the most because it’s not even true. Hitler was very fond of those yummy German sausages – I honestly can’t recall if he was known for liking knockwurst or bratwurst – but couldn’t eat it very often because fatty foods upset his stomach. Also, he was inordinately vain when it came to his weight.)


Pfff. EVERYONE knows that Hitler was a vegetarian! And an atheist! And a Pagan! And a Communist! And anything else we need him to conveniently be!

a different brad

Whole Foods is a fucking godsend. There’s maybe five things for sale in the whole place with high fructose corn syrup in it, just to begin with. Doughy will join the zipper club before.. how old is he now?


Hitler was a [your favorite sports team’s most hated rival] fan!

And of course curing cancer is the same thing as ending racial predjudice and exterminating the Jews and all those other things both liberals and Nazis luv like precious kittens. Real Americans LOVE cancer. Hell, John Wayne had cancer, and what’s more American than that? I’ll tell you: Ronald Reagan’s asshole cancer.


Oh, and if Goldberg has actually read anything written by Hugh Trevor-Roper, I’ll eat my hat.

Pretentious asswipe.


After seeing that picture, this just had to be done.

As always, Sadly, No! has express permission to use any photoshop I do unless it can somehow make money, in which case I want a sizeable slice of that pie.


I never got the conservative arguments about liberals. They’re just moronic.

On the one hand we’re fascists who want to take over everything. And on the other hand we’re cowardly surrender-crats who want to bow down to Islam and/or Communism?


Awesome, Julie.


On the one hand we’re fascists who want to take over everything. And on the other hand we’re cowardly surrender-crats who want to bow down to Islam and/or Communism?

At least we’re fully-rounded and complex characters.


Or that feminists are all wanton sluts who hate men but have lots of sex with the men they hate while at the same time being lesbians that are just jealous and bitter than no man will ever make her cook him dinner every night.

I don’t think there’s enough hours in the day for me to get that worked up, frankly.


Too late to send this to Lucianne, isn’t it.


If you wanted to get all academic on just how “green” the Nazis were, you’d click right here:


Has no relevance, but is cool. And old, I know. pshaw.

As a side note, Rum and Cokes taste well better with a lime slice in them. Takes the “nyquil” taste mostly out of it.

Hehehe. “It’s the Doughpuff Marshmallow Load.”


Things fascists do:

1) Use the legal system to persecute their political opponents.

2) Demonize some ‘other’ group and whip up hysteria about the threat these others present to decent society.

“Propaganda to the home front must create an optimum anxiety level.” ~Goebbels’ Principles of Propaganda by Leonard W. Doob

“We’re facing a radical ideology with an unalterable objective, to enslave whole nations and intimidate the whole world,” he [Bush] said.

3) Use 2) to take the nation into war.

Take it to the hoop, Reichsmarshall Hermann!

“Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”
— Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials


John Wayne loved cancer so much that after he got rid of it the first time, he had the U.S. government irradiate him just so he could have more of it.

(warning: that may be an urban legend, but by god, I love that one.)


God, I only wish our fascists were half as cool as the Nazis.

Nazis gave great speeches. They were sharp dressers. They understood pagentry like nobody’s business.

Our fascists worry about gynecologists “practicing their love with women across America”. Our fascists wear cowboy boots embroidered with “God Save the Queen” when they meet the Queen of England. Our fascists think that the sixty couch commandoes with beer bellies who show up at a Gathering of Eagles rally is high pagentry done right.

It’s like it’s not bad enough that we’re being taken over by fascists, but we’re being taken over by a fascist brigade of Ralph Kramdens without the witty dialog or comedic timing. If there is a god, they certainly hate America.


Jillian, are fascists are far wealthier, and have even greater contempt for their supporters.


Are? OUR! Arrrrrhh!

Only a couple more months ’til Talk like a pirate day.


y’arrr, I be having a southern accent.

I got some rum iffen you want it, thunderdon’t.


Some Guy:

I love you for making that reference.


i just saw sicko. after seeing that movie then reading jonah’s…i’m looking for a german neologism here…writinginthenowwithoutknowingthewayofthinkingexceptlikeatotalfuckingidiot,
say…i’m moved. moved to move. canada. england. france. wherever.

i know moore stacks the deck. i know. i know he gives you the picture he wants you to see (in that i suppose he’s a director, so who cares?).

but you watch the health care systems of other countries, and the reasoning behind them, and then you come back to read jonah goldberg, paid a very large amount of money to write IN MY FUCKING HOMETOWN PAPER and…

canada. england. france.


Patkin: JW (my personal ‘Murkin God) allegedly got the Big C while shooting The Conqueror (One of his greatest ever, hah hah hah!) in St. George, Utah, downwind from the Nevada Nuclear Test Range when it was rockin’ hard in 1955-56. Supposed high rate of cancer among the cast & crew who were there. I think that was enough for the C to recur. Don’t know how much research has been done here; were there any A-tests when The Conqueror was on location, for example?
Or were you kidding ’bout the whole thing? You said “urban legend,” so I jumped all over it, in the interests of clarification, myth-debunking, etc.


M. Bouffant: No, I knew that story. I called it ‘urban legend’ because of that ‘allegedly’ in the story.

As I recall, there was an A-test while they were shooting, but they didn’t link it up until the Duke dropped.


The Nazis perfected the concept of “preemptive” aggression.

Everything the Nazis did was wrong.

According to the reflexive property, “preeemptive” aggression must necessarily be wrong also.

Apparently basic logic evades the chickenshit chickenhawk.


let’s face it, [Jonah] isn’t even qualified to work as the Guy Who Scrapes Dead Animals off the Street

“An untrue dirty-librul slur! Jonah only lost that job because he kept taking his work product home without proper authorization!”

(No, I’m not proud of myself. But somebody has to bring the cheapshot funny, and it’s my turn on the duty roster.)


Meh. As dumb as this is, I just could never really get all that worked up about anything Jonah ever wrote. He always just seemed like a self-satisfied, not as smart as he thinks dork, but is otherwise pretty un-objectionable compared to a lot of the other wingnuts out there. At least he never called for concentration camps or executions or mass-murder or anything. It’s pretty faint praise I know, but when you’re dealing with this crowd…


Is Jonah the guy that eats giant hotdogs or is that Hugh Hewitt? I can’t tell these idiots apart.

Anyway, someone should forcefeed Jonah wheatgrass juice until his brain sprouts some healthy cells. The ones he has have atrophied.

Qetesh the Abyssinian

Oh, nononononono! The Nazis wore pants!11!!Eleventy-one! Anyone wearing pants is a Nazi! Oooh, noes!4711!


they’ll point to the publication of Liberal Fascism

Always assuming it gets written, of course…

Is Jonah the guy that eats giant hotdogs or is that Hugh Hewitt? I can’t tell these idiots apart.

I think you’re thinking of John Hinderaker, of PowerLine.

That’s not to say that Jonah doesn’t eat giant hot dogs . . . in fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that he rather enjoys them.


Is Jonah the guy that eats giant hotdogs or is that Hugh Hewitt? I can’t tell these idiots apart.

They are a bunch of idiots, yes. I do think that we should never forget that they are a bunch of idiots who want to see people like us in concentration camps, however.


While looking for a particular clip from Triumph of the Will on Youtube (there’s a scene in the film where Hitler is reviewing a marching brigade of day laborers while the voiceover talks about how the ditchdigger is as important to the future of Germany as the soldier – talk about masterful propaganda!), I found this instead.

Either my Spanish is much worse than I realize, or this is a Mexican Nazis video.

I am perplexed.


…but we’re being taken over by a fascist brigade of Ralph Kramdens without the witty dialog or comedic timing

Instead of fascists, we have farcists.


“Instead of fascists, we have farcists.”

Good one!


I wonder of Jonah has read THE NAZI WAR ON CANCER since Proctor explicitly denies there is a link between the Nazi’s opposition to smoking and modern opposition to smoking. Proctor wants to argue against the idea that good scientific research can only flourish in democracy. His claim that good scientific research resulted as a consequence of racist ideology complicates common notions about the link between science and free inquiry.

This is a subtle academic argument and Jonah is incapable of understanding the main argument of Proctor’s book.

Sorry, I know this isn’t a funny post, but this is actually something that touches on what I do for a living (historian) and it is pretty rare that I get to use that on the innernets.



Before reading your astute “the Nazis wore pants” I commented, over at Mona’s place, that the Nazis believed in “getting dressed in the morning.”

Like minds, etc.

Herr Doktor Bimler

Things fascists do:
2) Demonize some ‘other’ group and whip up hysteria about the threat these others present to decent society.

Al Gore is demonising SUV drivers and wiping up hysteria about the threat they pose.
Is it can book contract tiem now plees?


Maybe Doughy listened to the Dead Kennedy’s song “California Uber Alles” and thought it was an historically accurate song:

I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president…

Carter Power will soon go away
I will be Fuhrer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school!

California Uber Alles
California Uber Alles
Uber Alles California
Uber Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face

Close your eyes, can’t happen here
Big Bro’ on white horse is near
The hippies won’t come back you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay!


Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It’s the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp
You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower
For your clothes here’s a pretty flower.

DIE on organic poison gas
Serpent’s egg’s already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown


Trilateral Chairman

The best summary of Jonah I’ve ever seen appeared here:

Reading your Sopranos post reminds me of why it is that you suck. It’s not that you’re a bad, immoral, dumb, or dangerous person, because you’re clearly harmless and probably a nice guy. You’re just glib and shallow and incapable of processing big ideas.

I pretty much agree with this. Jonah’s not that bright and doesn’t try very hard, and that’s about all there is to say about him. It’s kind of irritating that he survives while being so preposterously ignorant, but there are worse people out there.
