Open Thread for George Tierney, Jr. of Greenville, South Carolina

Just because I hadn’t gotten on the scoreboard yet.

He was interviewed by Glossynews just before he took down his twitter account, which he has subsequently restarted (@geotie2323):

Apparently Tbogg is actually Jennifer something:

GlossyNews.com – Are you actually planning legal action or have you decided yet?
George Tierney – Oh I’m going to have legal action, yeah. I’m planning legal action against tbogg, whoever tbogg is, and I think it’s a female. Let me go back here I’ll tell you exactly who tbogg is … Female name that came back was Jennifer something, yeah she’s going to get legal action against her because she’s the one that started all this crap against me.

It just goes downhill from there.  Apparently, one can become the perfect Muslim by getting oneself thrown out of the “muslim church” and renaming oneself after a cheese company:

GlossyNews.com – I have not heard that.
George Tierney – Yep, it’s in the news. It’s also a fact that you can be a muslim and you can go to the top echelon and you can go to them and request Chakira [sp] where you can renounce your faith in front of God, man and everybody else in order to get what the muslims desire, and that’s what Barack Obama has done. He went to, he got thrown out of wherever he was born, he was born in Kenya, but his name was changed to George Sorrento and it was never changed back legally when he moved back to the United States. He grew up over in Kenya and a couple other places over there. I’ve got it all right in front of me, I can send it all to you if you want.

So I’d like to ask George Tierney, Jr. of Greenville, South Carolina, “dude, when are you going to close your Goddamn salad tosser?

    Oh my. Why is it I have a sneaking suspicion that George Tierney Jr of Greenville SC went to private school? If you’re from these parts, you know the ones I mean. They’re named after heroes like Andrew Jackson and Jefferson Davis and they began appearing on the landscape around 1969 or so.

    Hey Juicers,

    So, I’ve never done this before, but I figure there’s a first time for everything (and it’s an open thread).

    North Dakota might be one of those red states, but for the first time in what seems like forever, the Democrats have a great candidate for governor- Ryan Taylor. While I understand that everyone has their own races they are interested in, particularly near home, I’d encourage any of you blue state Juicers with a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket to give Ryan a look. I know him personally, and am going to be giving until it hurts, because if there’s any place that needs an infusion of thoughtful leadership, it the blank spot in the nation’s consciousness known as North Dakota.

    We’ve got to start somewhere in reclaiming the red parts of the map, and electing a great guy like Ryan would be a great foundation.

    Ryan just released his first campaign ad, and anything you kind people could pitch his way will help us make sure he doesn’t get swamped by the other side.

    From the interview it appears that he is borderline mentally ill (Obama kills cancer researchers to keep their success quiet) and is basking in the attention he is getting and doesn’t have any sense of shame.

    Joel says:

    My favorite part is:

    Absolutely not, I could care less about myself. My dad already emailed me and he said “what is this?” He said “I am embarrassed beyond belief” so yeah, I’m a little embarrassed about that. But I mean, who looked up my father’s stuff? They thought it was me. My dad is not on Twitter, my dad is not on Facebook. My dad is 70+ years old, doesn’t deal with any of that, and he gets an email from some clown tonight calling him names from stuff that I put on Twitter.

    Which occurs midway through the interview. You’d think that if he were truly embarrassed about humiliating his father’s name, he would have stopped right then and there.

    I don’t think it’s quite peak wingnut, because the birther-curious Arizona Secretary of State backed off and apologized for embarrassing the state. Besides, I don’t think we’ve heard anything today from Allen West. Can’t be peak wingnut without him.

    It would be hilarious, but I’m also guessing that this is being passed around in the e-mail lists with a phone number, address, or other personal info, and some poor schmuck named George Sorrento is about have the hate machine sewage thrown at him.

    I get a lot of pleasure out of reading Orly Taitz style stuff like this, where it’s clearly incoherent belief instead of demagoguery

    Note the magical thinking in “he never changed his name back”, a bit I see a lot when I read stuff from these people, even though to most people this would seem to be the least of our problems if the conspiracy is real . . .

    BUT! there is sort of an outsider-art quality to the legal thinking here where an entire “theory” has been built up that, like, everything the President has done is secretly void because it wasn’t done under his True Demon Name, known only to the wisest of Republicans . . .

    People on the right who fancy themselves polymaths focus and obsess over false trivia like this, always looking for the catch that will keep them from having to pay taxes or let black people near their “small business” hocking supplements out of their trunks or whatever

    I think the top person pushing Breitbart-was-assassinated is Mancow, or at least last I checked, with a lot of corresponding chatter on the sites I mentioned (Google says WND too, which I didn’t mention but should have)

    AFAIK, no, Big Government does not pimp the idea that Dear Leader was offed by the Secret Service (SHIT THAT HAS INITIALS) although they are glad to link up to sites and people on other stories where the next piece pushes that theory (ever so conveniently)

    To be honest though nothing Big Government does has much effect IMO unless you hear about it elsewhere through some ostensibly centrist source

    Honestly I see no difference between the Breitbarts, Freepers, WingNut Dailies, etc. They’re all equally nutty to me.

    Effective psy ops/counterintelligence requires the distinction – different messages with different targets and goals, requiring different countermeasures and different predictive tools to preempt the next message

    Oh, there are degrees of this sort of dumbfuckery.

    I’d say FreeRepublic is the lowest of the low. These guys have been around for 20 years, they were in the thick of things with Clinton conspiracy theories (the entire Mena Airport kerfuffle, Hillary Clinton killed her lesbian lover Vince Foster, etc). The stupid there is thick, pungent, and toxic. It will damage your brain if you don’t carefully moderate your exposure, and even then, it will leave you with an unpleasant buzzing between your ears.

    As indicated, Breitbart is an effort to get this crazy shit out on to the MSM, and it’s worked for the most part. What happened in the 90’s demonstrated that the MSM were, as Gene Lyons illustrated so well, fools for scandal. Whitewater was a case of the country bumpkins taking the city slickers for a ride. They’ve still got their thumbs out, having learned nothing from what happened to them then.

    @texascowgirl: The thing is, no joke, that may very well define a large percentage of the 27% teabagger base. Hence we get the spectacle of probably-sane politicians saying literally insane things in order to pander to a clinically-delusional base.

    A few months ago, The Atlantic published an absolutely fascinating Civil War edition, consisting mostly of articles which had appeared in their magazine during the Civil War, written by various famous people. Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote this upon visiting a Union prisoner of war camp, about the people who constituted the foot-soldiers of the South.

    Almost to a man, they were simple, bumpkin-like fellows, dressed in homespun clothes, with faces singularly vacant of meaning, but sufficiently good-humored: a breed of men, in short, such as I did not suppose to exist in this country, although I have seen their like in some other parts of the world. They were peasants, and of a very low order; a class of people with whom our Northern rural population has not a single trait in common

    I thought that idea had died out among New Evangelicals to be replaced by “real science by this mail order guy says that liberal college science is fake science” which is how I’d assumed Liberty’s classes went on the day or two they focus on the subject of evolution

    The theory that gets cited here is instead a fundamentalist / Pentacostal favorite, the one known more famously for the idea that either God or Satan created already-buried fossils within the ground for animals that never lived

    It is practically a Gnostic heresy and I thought the fundamentalist New Ev textbook market had put paid to it among the semi-certified New Ev academic set

    Since it’s an open thread. Reuters is reporting that an investigation into insider trading has already been threatened against Facebook in light of the plunging stock price.

    Whoucouldaknowed that FB going public might lead to instant ripoffs.

    Law Firm of Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announced that it is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of Facebook Inc securities concerning possible violations of federal securities laws. On May 22, 2012, reports surfaced indicating that analysts for at least two of Facebook’s lead underwriters revised downward their financial forecasts for the Company while it was holding IPO ‘road-show’ meetings with investors. These reports also suggest that the revised figures were only passed along to some investors who were therefore able to make profits by selling their IPO shares on 18 May, 2012 while shares were on the rise. The reports further indicate that the chairman of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority said regulators plan to review allegations that such information was shared only with certain investors.

    Economy Improving Faster in Swing States Bloomberg reports the geography of the U.S. economic rebound is providing an edge to President Obama’s re-election. “The unemployment rates in a majority of the 2012 battleground states are lower than the national average as those economies improve… Those eight states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia — have a combined 101 electoral votes. Romney must win at least 79 of those electoral votes to prevail if all other states run true to their 2004 and 2008 partisan preferences.”

The GOP really, really does not want the general voting public thinking too hard about their ‘job creators’ right now. Obama has finally killed Reagan’s ‘all raised taxes are raising YOUR taxes’ meme and people are really getting pissed at the wealthy not paying their fair share. So the plotters and planners want the entire subject to become too burdensome for the masses to listen to.

    The delusions of the gop base are numerous: birtherism, teabaggery, fiat currency/gold buggery, OWS = dirty hippies, feminazis, black helicopters/New World Order/International Jew Banker, the Amero and the NAFTA highway to Mexico, secret FEMA concentration camps, supply side economics, ‘tax cuts pay for themselves’, the rich = Job Creators, ‘blacks/the poors/messicans caused the mortgage meltdown’, and on and on. They either believe it cold, or they can’t make themselves to disbelieve it, no matter what evidence or logic you might present.

    Tell me, how can a person believe in so much nonsense so totally and completely as so many of them do, and not be manifesting some degree of delayed development or mental illness?

    IOW, there really isn’t a whole lot of daylight between the GOP Base and the mentally ill.

    Bug-fuck crazy or not, that asshole George Tierney Jr. votes and he hates women, especially intelligent and outspoken ones who stand up to his misogyny.

    Don’t feel sorry for mocking him. His vote counts the same as yours, and he votes republican for a reason, and would love to put women in a place no human being ever ought to be if he ever had the power to do so.

    @johnny orogeny: He doesn’t vote republican. Didn’t you read the interview?

    “GlossyNews – What are you?
    George Tierney – I voted for Bill Clinton in 92 and 96. I voted for Al Gore in 2000. I wrote my name in in 2004 and 2008. Not to be obnoxious or a jackass but the fact is is I wrote my name in because I thought the two guys running for president were a joke. I think that the 2000 election was rigged, Al Gore won the election, but Jeb Bush was the governor of Florida, we had three recounts and all the sudden George Bush is president, then all the sudden we’ve got wars.”
