A Saturday Tour through General Wingnuttia

Lots going on this weekend on the fringe right, so I thought I would take you all on a guided tour of the crazy.

Our first stop is the most poorly named website on the internet, the Astute Bloggers, where they ask if Obama’s mentor was a communist. Not content with mere red-baiting, our pals decide to kick it up a notch:

HERE’S A PHOTO OF OBAMA JUNIOR (MIDDLE), AND HERE’S ONE OF FRANK DAVIS (LEFT) AND BH OBAMA SENIOR (RIGHT).

* WHO LOOKS MORE LIKE FATHER AND SON, FRANK & BARRY OR BARRY AND OBAMA SENIOR?

* LOOK AT THE SUPRA-ORBITAL RIDGES, THE FOREHEAD, THE HAIRLINE, THE EYEBROWS, THE EYELIDS, THE JOWLS, THE CHEEKBONES – AND THE EARS.

* FACT: BARRY OBAMA JUNIOR LOOKS NOTHING LIKE BARACK OBAMA SENIOR, AND VERY MUCH LIKE FRANK DAVIS.

* AND BARRY HAS MANY OF FRANK’S TRAITS: LIKE A GIFT FOR WRITING, FOR INSTANCE.

* AND IT GIVES OBAMA JUNIOR A VERY DEEP CONNECTION TO CHICAGO – FRANK’S HOMETOWN

* REMEMBER: STANLEY ANN DUNHAM WAS PREGNANT WHEN SHE MARRIED OBAMA SENIOR. MAYBE IT WASN’T HIS CHILD.

* FRANK DAVIS WROTE IN HIS MEMOIR HE AND HIS WIFE HAD A THREESOME WITH A WHITE GIRL NAMED ANN. WAS THIS STANLEY AN DUNHAM?

* DID SHE MARRY OBAMA SENIOR BECAUSE SHE KNEW THE CHILD WOULD BE BLACK AND SHE NEEDED A HUSBAND? DID THEY MAKE A DEAL SO HE COULD STAY IN THE USA?

THIS CAN BE EASILY PROVEN: JUST GET A DNA TEST FROM A RELATIVE IN KENYA AND SEE IF IT MATCHES BARRY OBAMA JUNIOR’S.

Nothing like a little red-baiting and garden-variety phrenology and photo-shop genealogy to get this tour started off right.

***********

Moving right along, we head over to our old buddy Dan Riehl’s joint, the Riehl World View, where we find that Dan Riehl is incensed by the Washington Post’s Ann Kornblut. Apparently, Ann made the mistake of pointing out that Sarah Palin is lying about visiting Iraq, and this has Dan livid:

Maybe it’s time the media did some serious looking into the early travels of a fellow who wants to be President, not Vice President of the United States – Barack Obama.

This isn’t crazy Obama Muslim Manchurian candidate stuff. Remember the Clintonite who off-handedly dropped the “drug dealer” line during the primaries? Well, anyone can source this below based upon MSM accounts, the news at the time or the few simple links provided. It’s certainly enough to make me curious about some things.

***

For a college kid out of California via Hawaii who ends up in a NYC slum via Pakistan partying with admitted drug users – using well beyond what Obama has ever admitted to, especially given the particular era, that Pakistan voyage is one very curious trip no matter how you slice it. And I don’t mean for any possible Muslim/terror related reasons.

For example, if they had to lie about income to get the apartment cited below – how is it they paid for it seems a fair question? Did he deal drugs at Columbia? He certainly seems to have had the location and friends for it and the Obama campaign has gone to great lengths to cover up that period of his life. Frankly, I want to know why and I think America deserves to know, as well.

Maybe he was dealing drugs though his secret father Frank Marshall’s communist drug cartel. Again, since Sarah Palin is lying about Iraq, it would be irresponsible not to speculate that Obama is a drug dealer!

***

Our third stop is the wingnut mothership, Michelle Malkin, where we learn that Michelle is quite incensed by the way BARACK HUSSEIN DRUG DEALING STEALTH SON OF A COMMIE OBAMA placed a flower on a grave:

It’s a small gesture, but gestures matter at the hallowed grave site of so many murdered innocent Americans.

Barack Obama flings a memorial rose at Ground Zero like he’s a kid tossing pennies into a fountain at the shopping mall — or a spectator tossing flowers at a bullfight.

He doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Only a true America hater places flowers on graves like that.

***

Our final stop on the crazy train is at the Values Voters Summit, where we learn about a new family value:

At the Values Voter Summit this weekend, vendors sold an item called “Obama Waffles” featuring a racist cartoon of Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) on the box front — with “popping eyes and big, thick lips” — and another image of him wearing an Arab-like headdress on its top flap. Its creators, Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss, said it was meant as “political satire,” and sold the box for $10 from a booth at the Family Research Council event. CNN’s Lou Dobbs stopped by the booth and exclaimed, “My wife will love this!” A photo shows Dobbs with a box of the mix in his hand.

I hope you all have enjoyed this quick tour, and I think I speak for everyone when I state how thankful I am the right wing base and right wing blogosphere has decided to follow McCain’s lead and run a respectful, substance based campaign.

Well he was, was beaten so badly that he cannot life his arms above his knees to type. Obama, see, lifted his arms way in the air. This is a slap in the face of POWs and the arthritic everywhere. So there.

    You sure put the tag I Read These Morons So You Don’t Have To to work John. That is one fuck of a nightmare tour of right wing mental abuse wards you put together! Those are some sick people with twisted minds, and you are just scraping the top layer of the scum on the bottom of the barrel of shit they live in.

    Hate is a way of life with these people. They have to hate, they need an enemy to justify their hate. Without hate, they are just empty shells with no reason to live. They don’t like anyone unless they are just as hateful as they are, better if they are even more hateful.

    These are the bitter people who need to stay bitter to live. It is all that props their sorry asses up.

    OT:

    I think it would be great if Obama planned a final rally in some large stadium just prior to the election. Somewhere centrally located so that the maximum number of people could attend. Have the party bigshots appear and rally the party and then have Biden, then Obama wrap it up with some fire.

    It would fill the news cycles, pushing mundane shit out of the way and give Obama an excellent way to connect one last time with the voters before they vote.

    Think the Repubs could top that move right before the election? ;)

    No f’ing way.

    Interesting stuff, Dan Riehl dug up. Incidentally, voters might want to know some more details about John McCain’s past as well.

    McCain is known to have dated strippers in the past. Did you also know that he spent time in Southeast Asia earlier in his life? The sexual services of prostitutes, male and female were widely available to American military men in Southeast Asian cities during the time McCain spent R&R time in that region, prior to being captured by the North Vietnamese.

    By the mid-1960s, Southeast Asian cities were known as hotbeds of underage male and female prostitution. McCain was known during this period as a ‘partying man’.

    I and other voters would like to know more about McCain’s time spent in hotbeds of underage prostitution.

    Also, these questions aren’t crazy McCain whoremonger pedophile candidate stuff.

    Obama uses John McCain’s folksy down-home expression for shining shit, and it’s a horrible smear against all womankind and that sonofabitch better apologize to every woman, for all time, for every act of cruelty and abuse ever committed?

    I’ll do you one better!

    Obama knew that by tossing that rose higher by raising his arms higher than McCain he was literally throwing it in McCain’s teeth, ‘See, what I can do, that you can’t you depends wearing sack of shit’. It’s a slap in the face of soldiers who went to Vietnam for their country. He was a POW goddam it! McCain was a POW! A POW! POW! POW! POW! and POW!

It’s best to just ignore them… Not so that they will stop, so that they step over the line in an attempt to grab attention and be “funny”.

    Continue to ignore them, and focus on the issues. They will commit seppuku by teh stoopid.

    Jesus fucking christ. It was a MASSIVE pile of flowers, and the picture is cropped to make it look like he flung them on a little stack. In all actuality, most people were throwing them into the large pile just like Obama. For fuck sake, we just spent the last 48 hours discussing McCain’s limited range of motion with his arms due to being in a cgae for 5 and a 1/2 years, and now you can not figure out why McCain placed his gingerly. Do I have to puzzle everything out for you people?

    3 And why behold the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    4 Or how will thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

    5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

    So, here is the sad part. When I watched the video, I saw Obama toss the rose and the McCain’s place theirs. I thought, “Yeah, some idiot is going to try to make hay of that.” Of course, the same idiot didn’t say anything about the way McCain fidgeted with his rose while he walked around with it, and Obama held it like it was “more special.” But gawd amighty, deliver us from being such bone heads that those are the aspects we judge character with.

    And those “values voters”? All Christians, the good church going kind. I guess they ran out of Jesus’ Milk of Human Kindness to serve with breakfast, and instead opted for Sarcasm Syrup and Powdered Bitter with a nice slice of Bigot Butter.

    On the upside, I feel better about calling McCain a cat ass face last night. In comparison I am strictly an amature!

    So how’d you feel about the fact that Mayor Bloomberg tossed his rose (see rightmost part of video at 1:18) the same way Obama did? Does it make you want to put together a movement to get Bloomberg impeached or is that toss okay?

    Watching people fixate on the ridiculous while substantive issues are ignored does produce surliness in many. Get used to it, and if you are an Obama supporter, grow a thick skin (I’ve had people on BJ misinterpret at least one of my posts, so I’m willing to concede that the same might be happening to you). No doubt, there’s going to be a whole lot of surliness before November 4.

    thanks for the link. i have been wanting this rumor to get mainstreamed and you are helping. thanks!

    it’s better than the trig rumors. at least it’s possibly true.

    if you think obama sr. was the real father, then are you willing to accept that davis was obama’s earliest mentor – or did barry get that wrong in the first volume of his memoirs?

    do you accept that davis was a chicago commie?

    don’t you think it an odd coincidence that barry should end up with an alinsky disciple in chicago of all places? not nairobi, not honolulu, not nyc, not boston – you get the idea: not in any city otherwise connected to bary’s cv.

    davis is the only real connection between barry and chicago and the left within chiocago besides the supposed ad that barry supposedly saw by happenstance in some unnamed “do-gooder” magazine?

    that is frankly implausible; it doesn’t pass the straight-face test.

    my scenario is actually the simplest explanation for barry’s cv – and his facial appearance.

    or do you see a family resemblance between barry and obama senior?

    no one else does.

    most people think he looks more like davis.

    i have several friends and acquaintances who have bi-racial kids and there is still a strong family resemblance.

    Following close on the news that Obama hates POWs and pistol whips them with Blackberries, comes the new winger ragegasm bouncing around in Memeorandum about the “editing” of Palin’s interview by ABC. This is another piece of stupidity that was chopped to pieces by Daniel Larison in American Conservative, ferfugssake. The whole interview was broadcast with the “edited out” parts on Good Morning America the next day, and frankly, it made Plain look worse, not better.

    I know it’s just lies-as-usual for those guys, but this time the target is different – this stuff is for “the base”, so help them fight off that horrible feeling that Palin really is a lightweight and painfully out of her league. Most of their blaterings (and trolling comment sections like this one) are intended as psyops, to make Obama supporters discouraged, hoping to keep them at home on election day.

    But what amazes me is the sheer speed with which they propagate a story. It’s like they all get the same talking points memo at the same time, telling them what to write. Funny that.

    It’s part of the therapy. After they get good at stringing beads and growing beans in a pot, they let them on the internets for a couple of hours a day as long as they behave themselves. I’m worried though. This little adventure may set reliapundit back a few steps and he may have to go back to stringing beads or making clay pots for a while.

Yeah, cuz the BLACK genes are stronger (even tho inferior), so the babies all look like the BLACK parent. If they DON’T look like the BLACK parent, it’s cuz the other parent was foolin’ around…with COMMIES!

    Sadly, Ms. Malkin missed the most salient point of that moment: the ceremony (initiated by Obama, by the way) was supposed to be a memorial – free of politics, calling to mind a time when all Americans were united in common emotions. Besides, there’s every chance that Senator McCain, too, would have “tossed” his flower at the memorial site (much as people toss flowers on graves at funerals every day), were he able to lift his arms above his shoulders!
