The Worst Person in the World

Is still Randall Terry:

The Moran town hall was the last stop on a 10-city tour for Randall Terry, the anti-abortion activist known for his extreme tactics.

Terry’s colleagues put on a skit with a man in an Obama mask pretending to whip a bloodied woman, who kept saying, “Massa, don’t hit me no more. I got the money to kill the babies.”

Terry himself dressed in a doctor’s lab coat and pretended to stab a woman in a gray wig.

“There’s no way to pay for this thing without killing granny,” Terry explained.

I wonder if afterwards, someone bought him some wings and a Guiness.

    Terry’s pretty God-awful, though. Maybe he and Phelps should team up. They could go picket some soldiers’ funerals together in between racist quasi-Passion plays.

    Ah, it was called that after the Representative leading the meeting. Okay.

    A bit from that article, and I realize that I am one of about 6 people in the country that this bothers, but still.

    “They waved signs, wearing large flags around their shoulders adorned by a large machine gun and the words, “Come and take it.”

    Some of us, even dirty rotten liberals, still think that the flag should be treated as per the flag code. I took my kids’ little July 4th flags away from them because they kept letting them touch the ground. You are supposed to fly the flag with respect, not draw a machine gun on it and literally wrap yourself in it. I cannot abide these people who would support a constitutional amendment to ban flag burning, something that has happened about twice in this country in the last decade, but will cheerfully wear it as a string bikini or as some kind of man-shawl.

    Maybe someone could bring out a real knife, stab Terry, and yell, “There’s no way to pay for this without killing Granpa too!”
    I’m not advocating killing him. I’d just like to see how he likes all of the free health care he’ll get at the emergency room. You know, like we do.

    Every time you think this shit can’t get any crazier, someone like Terry ups the ante. WTF will they think of next? The mind and soul shudder… Brrrrr….

    I watched this on CSPAN last night. First, I like Jim Moran and I really like Howard Dean but Moran’s handling of the townhall wasn’t all that great and I am not sure what Dean could have done but he didn’t really do anything to help the situation. Second, Randall Terry is an a-hole and is really a killer being that he eggs on the murderers of womens’ healthcare providers. Anyway, Moran actually gave Terry a chance to be civil which Terry of course didn’t take him up on and you could here Terry repeating “Howard Dean’s a baby killer” as he was led out of the building.

    Nope, can’t agree there. Phelps is definitely a giant turd in the toilet bowl of life, what with his disrespect for fallen soldiers, and calling on the FSM to smite all us Sodomites and Gomorrahites, and all. But Randall Terry has actually encouraged, if not conspired to, murder. I can think of at least 3 deaths of doctors that can be laid directly at his feet. Not so much for Phelps, much as I might wish it was so.

    It’s so wonderful political theater he’s got going there. Take a bullshit lie and absolutely run it around the block, in case anyone missed how absurd and laughable it all is.

    Who takes this guy seriously? He’s the personification of right wing lunacy. The “Jesus Camp” textbook example of what is wrong with these political actors.

    Randall isn’t trying to sway anyone’s opinion. He’s putting on his own little Glen Beck show, for fun and a little profit.

    He is just an act and a bad one at that. Where can he go from here? How more ridiculous and contemptible could he even be with more effort? (I think he and his ilk have maxed out the crazy to the point of hilarity). At some point, and I think its soon, the diminishing returns are manifest…Ah cmon Randall, please give us more crazy — how more crazy can you be — ah c’mon — we know you can get even crazier! Why not smear baby poop and placenta juice all over your face?

    Its just crazy and stupid multiplied together in an atmosphere generated by scared and very ignorant white people. Do you think any white person in leadership will challenge the other whites leading these crazy antics to just come clean about what they are up to? Many, including liberal whites, will say this as an aside to each other (that the Terry’s of the world are white people trying to make stupid white people scared in order to control them).

    However, I would like to see a white person in leadership actually confront these folks personally in an interview or public meeting and point blank acuse the Terrys and others of this persuasion that they are just white racists and fear mongers trying to bully their people into opposing their own self interest. I have never heard of any white person doing that yet. If blacks and Latinos have to confront our own, and disavow crazy words and deeds, when do white people tackle their own crazies?

    He’s encouraged every gaybashing in America. Not sure how many murders that’s involved, not sure how much influence he’s had, and if it’s comparable to Terry’s doctor-murder influence. But that has to count in the equation somehow.

    @wilfred: *sigh* The town of my alma mater. Gainesville likes to think it’s a liberal bastion and unlike most of North Fla. But the rednecks are still thick on the ground there.

    And sadly, nobody makes much of a fuss over them although I’m sure lots of university types are clucking about the townie ignoramuses. But that’s mostly about feeling superior to them, not actually doing anything to call them out.

    That’s the thing about living in the midst of religious rednecks in the south: it’s never OK to call them out. One just shakes one’s head and moves along. Me…I moved along…and left the region about 30 years ago.

    I guess there are some Republicans who aren’t racist these days but they’re getting harder and harder to find. What the wingnuts fail to realize is that the moderates they drove out of the party gave them cover. If smart, suburban white people believe the Repubs aren’t racist, they don’t feel bad voting for them. That’s getting to be a pretty hard notion to maintain.

    I remember having a conversation along those lines while standing around in the cold on the mall on inauguration day– are all the armed crazies really going to allow this day to happen peacefully? To my surprise, and for many months after, things seemed eerily quiet, almost too calm that day. Not a single incident, not a single protester, and DC everywhere was all smiles.

    Now at the end of August I’m wondering how long it’s going to be before something really tragic happens, it really feels like it’s only a matter of time before some right-wing domestic terrorist tries to get everyone’s attention.

    r€nato says:

    if it makes any of you feel better about Randall Terry:

    1) Randall Terry regularly railed specifically against Clinton’s sex scandals and generally against men who dump their wives after many years of marriage to marry a younger woman, as well as against divorce. Terry’s opposition to divorce was so strong that when his own parents divorced, he refused to allow his father to speak to his grandchildren for three years.

    In 2000, Terry divorced his wife after 19 years of marriage and married an assistant from his church who was about 17 years younger than him.

    When he finally got the boot from the church where he made his name, Terry was accused by the pastor not just because of his scandalous behavior in this instance, but also because of a “pattern of repeated and sinful relationships and conversations with both single and married women.”

    2) Two of his daughters became pregnant out of wedlock, each of them doing so twice. One of them scored her two pregnancies before the age of 18. This daughter, Ebony, also converted to Islam. Terry has disowned both daughters.

    3) Also, one of his sons is gay. When his son was coming out, Terry disowned him and blamed his homosexuality on his mother (Terry’s first wife), calling her, ‘a prostitute.’

    Anybody who still follows this guy is clearly a moron and ethically challenged.

On the other hand, the sanest ones generally don’t even open their Bibles.

    Randall fucking “Women are Property cuz BIBLE SEZ SO” Terry is going to be at a clinic just outside of Omaha, Nebraska, this Friday and Saturday, August 28th & 29th, stabbing baby dolls and having compatriots in blackface act like they are accosting white nurses.

    — These are the very same actions you can find him doing at recent events, if you wish to google it, (I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t)–

    Anyway, there’s a rally to counter-protest this mysogynistic bible-banger, and I know it’s on short notice (This Friday!!!), but the counter-protesters need some help on this one.

    This clinic is the only one of it’s kind for at least 500 miles around, please don’t let the ghoulish god-zombies close it down without a fight.

    Please go here to read more: http://nebraskanow.tripod.com/#action
    (Link goes to Nebraska chapter of NOW)

    If you can remember the anger and helplessness many bloggers felt after the murder of George Tiller, you’ll know how I feel when I ask you to please come help us defend this clinic.

    TIA for any help you can send. If you can’t attend the rally (and I bet that’s a majority) you could consider dropping some coin on the Bellevue Clinic. They’re going to need it.

    RE: Bellevue Clinic, Aug. 28, 29

    Willf:

    Sounds like yet another freak show at the clinic. I’ve just survived two town halls up here in the Blue State of Rhode Island (something you’d have a hard time believing if you saw and heard what I did.) Let’s put it this way: if fear, ignorance and hate could somehow be repurposed as alternative sources of energy, well, we’d be living in the fresh, clean, green Garden of Eden in no time.

    Wish that there were any way for me to be in Omaha to show support, but will not be able. I do have a theatre vs. theatre suggestion, though, it goes something like this:

    Supporters of the clinic and of reproductive rights and even people who don’t care but loath Randall Terry anyway show up in great numbers. All are wearing lab coats and glasses. All carry clipboards with paper and pens. Some have tools such as stopwatches, food pellets, penlights, magnifying glasses, measuring tapes, Rorschach blots or even learn-your-ABCs pictures, etc. These “researchers” should surround the Randall Terry show – getting in as close as they dare and, maybe, just possibly, obstructing the view of any other observers? The researchers are silent, but might consult with one another non-verbally over their clipboards, compare notes and go about their various observation tasks – timing certain actions (stopwatch), measuring distances between “subjects” (tape measure), seeing how they respond to certain stimuli (food pellets, light shone into eyes, being shown pictures.) At no time, however, should any researcher speak to, touch, or even get close enough to touch one of the subjects. The researchers are there to observe and report, not to interact. The more dispassionately and silently this can be done, the more we can hope to learn about the perverse behavior of these strange creatures – so like humans in many ways, and yet – so inhuman.

    Just a thought.
