What in the name of God is wrong with these people?

If you haven’t already seen this, really absorb it….but it is just the prelude…Phase 1 of the brainwashing strategy – “Obama is not one of us.”

Moving on to Phase 2 of the brainwashing strategy – “Lie about what Obama is trying to do, in a truly frightening way.”

‘The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.’

Talk about downright evil. Sara Palin is beyond the pale. She is a walking talking sack of shit and is leading the way promoting pure bullshit. Taking advantage of people who are already so brainwashed and stupid that they would believe this crap. These idiots are so obsessed with demonizing Obama, that a 28 percent of these senile dingbats believe that Obama is not a citizen.

And finally Phase 3 – “When someone tries to correct the lies, do not listen to what they have to say and shout so they can’t even be heard.”

Insert here some notorius videos of jackass jerks at town hall meetings on Healthcare….I’ll leave that to the comments, as I need to get to work, but I needed a quick venting and the summertime ATH needed a little something.

    The health reform circus is startling, until you remember the history of this country and realize the true level of entrenched ignorance. Here is a classic post I came across during the election last year which conclusively establishes the baseline for crazy at 27% of the population. It’s hard to argue with his rationale. Given that only 28% of GOP (or 11% of total population) believe this nonsense, it’s actually a positive development! Could be a lot worse!

    I’d also like to note that Palin’s crazy quote came from her facebook page. Jimmy, has she made you a friend yet?

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    facebook?? I thought it was her twitter. Twitter is a big part of this madness too. beavis says, he he i said her twitter.

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    hey uila, how do you make it so you are notified via email when there is a new post or comment on ATH? i think you had said something about gmail…

  • M.Uila

    It’s not email notification. I follow the RSS feeds. Google Reader is the RSS reader I use, but there are all kinds of different ones. The Yahoo equivalent is “My Yahoo”… log in, go to that link, click “Add Content”, then click “Add RSS Feed”, then paste the links that we have posted above for “Entries RSS” and “Comments RSS”. New posts appear immediately, but new comments may update less frequently (Google’s seem to refresh like once a day).

    Everything you see under “Hypocrisy on the Web” comes from my shared Google Reader library. If I like it, I click a button and it shows up here like magic.

    PS, you might have seen me fooling around with the site design last night. I wanted to make the sidebar a little wider to cram a bit more in, but it made everything else go berserk so I let it go.

  • M.Uila

    Here’s an instant classic:

    And then of course there’s the New Hampshire jackass who showed up to Obama’s with a loaded gun and got thrown in jail put on national teevee. I’ll have to dig that clip up later.

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    Dude, that is a sweet montage of morons. I can always count one uila to gather the nuts. These puns jsut flow out of me like sweet urine on an elevator door.

  • M.Uila

    I liked “sponsor legislation that would require all bills be written at a junior high school level”.

    Idiocracy!

  • Pinko

    That red shirt, the deranged ranting…..this all seems so familiar. Does that woman have a relative in Minnesota?

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    My god its the same lady, she just got a haircut and lost a few pounds.

    Great article by Rick Perlstein in the Washington Post:

    It used to be different. You never heard the late Walter Cronkite taking time on the evening news to “debunk” claims that a proposed mental health clinic in Alaska is actually a dumping ground for right-wing critics of the president’s program, or giving the people who made those claims time to explain themselves on the air. The media didn’t adjudicate the ever-present underbrush of American paranoia as a set of “conservative claims” to weigh, horse-race-style, against liberal claims. Back then, a more confident media unequivocally labeled the civic outrage represented by such discourse as “extremist” — out of bounds.

  • Madman

    The message from the right wing extremists is simple, ‘who cares if poor people die?’ The bottom line for them is ‘don’t make me pay to keep some poor slob alive’. That is the ugly reality of their position…they would rather continue to get ripped off by the insurance industry than pitch into a system that helps low income Americans. Of course, the sad irony is that many of these extremists are themselves low income Americans that would be the main beneficiaries of reform…like this dumbass

  • Pinko

    Perlstein stated it better than anyone else I’ve read. “A more confident media” is exactly right! Brian Williams sounds so insecure I get the feeling he only does the news to make new friends. He seems to be trying to please everybody, or more importantly his corporate bosses, so the ratings don’t dip. It is so pathetic I almost feel sorry for the guy.

    Where have you gone Ron Burgundy?
