Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Blitzer warned to wear kid gloves with Hillary during CNN debate

According to Drudge:

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday’s Dem debate on Hillary. ‘This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,’ top Clinton insider explains. ‘Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull ‘a Russert.” Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux… Developing…  

If true, Her Highness’ pouting about those mean ol’ boys ganging up on her will have worked to perfection.  The MSM can’t allow their frontrunner to get any more chinks in her armor, can they?

New slogan for the Hildebeast: “Tough enough to take on terrorists, not questions on her policies.”

Iranian weirdbeard: Gays should be tortured, er, killed

Obviously, when Ahmanutjob said there were no gays in Iran, he was right: they kill gays in Iran.  Don’t be hatin’…they’re just listening to Allah.  From the UK’s Times:

Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learnt…

Minutes taken by an official describe a meeting between British and Iranian MPs at the Inter-Parliamentary Union, a peace body, in May. When the Britons raised the hangings of Asqari and Marhouni, the leader of the Iranian delegation, Mr Yahyavi, a member of his parliament’s energy committee, was unflinching. He “explained that according to Islam gays and lesbianism were not permitted”, the record states. “He said that if homosexual activity is in private there is no problem, but those in overt activity should be executed [he initially said tortured but changed it to executed]. He argued that homosexuality is against human nature and that humans are here to reproduce. Homosexuals do not reproduce.” 

Before any of you try and retort with the lame yet predictable “Christianity says the same thing”, let me retort in advance: No, it does not!

The Bible is clear on homosexuality: it’s an abomination in the eyes of God.  But guess what?  So is heterosexual fornication, theft, lying, murder, coveting, and a whole slew of other things.  No one of those is any worse in the eyes of God than the other.  God does not incite us to commit an act of violence against those who engage in any of those sinful activities.

“Oh yeah?”, you ask, “what about Leviticus 20:13? It says ‘If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. ‘? That’s an incitement to murder if I’ve ever heard one!” Regardless of what that Democrat cretin Fred Phelps might say, any references in the Bible to “must be put to death” are speaking of spiritual death imposed by God (i.e. Hell), since obviously killing another human being would clearly contradict the “Thou shalt not kill” commandment.  Being an unrepentant limpwrist won’t get you to Hell any faster than being an unrepentant liar or thief. Judgment is His, not ours.

Don’t believe in God?  Not my problem.  Believe in God, but not the “thou shalt not be a pillowbiter” part?  Not my problem.  You want to be a polesmoker? Be my guest. But one thing you can’t ignore is that nowhere in the Bible does God command anyone to torture, kill, or harm gay people.  Period.  According to Iran, Islam cannot make that claim.

Obama addresses looming Social Security crisis, moonbats go ape sh!t

The LA Times’ “Magic Negro” sees the imminent destruction of the Ponzi scheme known as Social Security.  You know, the same SS that Bubba said we couldn’t have a tax cut because we needed to use the “surplus” money to “shore up Social Security”?  Once Dubya became president, all of a sudden, SS was in great shape!  Anywho, Barry O has a solution to fixing Social Security.  O’s idea:

“I think the best way to approach this is to adjust the cap on the payroll tax so that people like myself are paying a little bit more and people who are in need are protected,” the Illinois senator said.

“That is the option that I will be pushing forward.”

Currently, only the first $97,500 of a person’s annual income is taxed. The amount is scheduled to rise to $102,000 next year. 

Naturally, partial privatization isn’t on the table, nor are benefits cuts or extending the retirement age (since we’re all living longer these days).  But hey, at least Osamabamadingdong is at least floating a solution, even if it sucks.  

What sayeth the moonbats?

Barack Obama, please realize that you are assisting the right’s efforts to get rid of Social Security. Their strategy is to make the public think that the program is in trouble and then sweep in with their “solution.” …IS your heart in the right place? Social Security is not in trouble. Stop saying it is.

The left’s ostriches have spoken: All is well with Social Security.  Pay no attention to the man behind the curtains with the facts to the contrary.

Hat tip to Michelle Malkin.

Quote of the day, double-dose

From Allahpundit, regarding the Bircheresque crank known as Ron Paul:

“Ron Paul will take money from Nazis. But he won’t take telephone calls from Jews.”

*

“And the next time he’s tempted to label Rudy Giuliani a ‘fascist,’ perhaps he should pause and consider who actual, self-described fascists are supporting for president.”

How long will it take before one of Captain Ron’s Ships of Crazy descends here to tell me how awesome Paul is and how he is the “Only Man Who Can Save America”?

Chavez: I am like Jesus, si?

The king of Spain told Venezuela’s socialist tinpot dictator Hugo Chavez to “shut up” last week.  Hugo’s response?

Hugo Chávez is not shutting up. Venezuela’s president stepped up his verbal counter-attack against the Spanish king yesterday by comparing his wounded pride to the suffering of Jesus Christ and Latin America’s colonial oppression.

Three days after Juan Carlos urged Chávez to “shut up” at a summit it was the latter doing all the talking while the king retreated into silence. The “explosion” of royal disdain betrayed an enduring colonial superiority complex, the president said upon his return to Caracas. It echoed not only 500 years of imperial power and abuse, but also the persecution of Christ.

Should he accept the king’s injunction to shut up, “the stones of the people of Latin America would cry out”, said Chávez, paraphrasing a comment by Christ in Jerusalem shortly before his crucifixion. The Venezuelan information ministry issued press releases identifying the relevant part of the Bible. 

Oh my God!  Or, in this case, I guess it should be “Oh my Hugo!”  We already knew the guy was a megalomaniacal dictator suffering from delusions of grandeur and a messiah complex.  Comments like this only further prove it.

By the way, it’s curious to see a man who has dissidents shot quoting Scripture, don’t you think?

GOP trying to tilt back to the right?

Welcome home, guys!  From Politico:

Republicans may trail in the polls on virtually every issue, but conservative influence is surging in both chambers of Congress as the GOP tries to find its soul again.

It’s a risky strategy to tack to the right while Democrats have momentum in most polls, but Republicans clearly believe that they need to recapture their base before they recapture the majority. 

A “risky strategy”?  What are they supposed to do, tilt to the left and be “Democrat lite”?  Or maybe it’s “risky” to try and be different from that Congress that’s…um…currently polling around an 11% approval rating?

Personally, I think it’s too little too late.  But I suppose it’s also “better late than never”, right?  At any rate, had they stuck to their fiscal conservative guns when they ran the show, perhaps things would be different.  But they didn’t, and I for one have a hard time taking them seriously these days on matters of fiscal responsibility.  Not that their ideological counterparts will be any better, of course.

U.N. warns of ignoring global “warming”

Whatever would we do without the United Nations?  Pfffff-bwahahahahahaha!  Sorry, friends, I couldn’t keep a straight face on that one!  Anywho, from the AP:

The U.N.’s top climate official warned policymakers and scientists trying to hammer out a landmark report on climate change that ignoring the urgency of global warming would be “criminally irresponsible.”

Everyone will feel its effects, but global warming will hit the poorest countries hardest and will “threaten the very survival” of some people, he said.

“Failing to recognize the urgency of this message and act on it would be nothing less that criminally irresponsible” and a direct attack on the world’s poorest people, De Boer said. 

Ignoring the genocide in Darfur isn’t criminally irresponsible, but ignoring junk science is?  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.
