Logic need not apply for consideration in right wing America. Two years after this clip aired on Fox news, the italicized comment that follows epitomizes the void propaganda creates in logic.
“Because Obama’s faith, or lack thereof, interferes with our lives. Initially he claimed to be Christian then he went to visit some foreign country and bowed deeply to the Prince who was Muslim. They hugged. If Obama was a ‘Christian’, he would not have bowed. His deep bow indicated submission and respect to that leader. In essence dragging out country with him. Muslims do not hug anyone but other Muslims. Then Obama claims that he is Muslim. His accent is quite good when using their words, so it’s not something foreign to him. Yet this past Easter, while addressing his audience he says…”as we Christians”, including himself. Either the man can’t make up his mind what religion he is, or he thinks we are too stupid to know you cannot be both a Christian and a Muslim. He has put Muslims in numerous aspects of the government, military and businesses. That way, when Obama is out of office, there will be other Muslims to take over.”
George W Bush kissing a Saudi prince, Donald Trump participating in a sword dance then placing his hands on an orb with Saudi leaders is polite diplomacy. Absurd right wing logic burbles righteous patriotism over Bush/Trump Arab encounters. Absurd logic dictates America fear only a black president whose middle name is Hussein. Fear Obama, the terrifying Negro whose diplomatic bow proves duplicitous Muslim intent to force Sharia Law on unsuspecting Americans. Absurd right wing logic can sleep well knowing its white reality television real estate mogul president isn’t a secret Muslim when he frolics with loathsome Arabs.
Absurd logic relies on ignorance, understands the propaganda of fear and knows how to nullify common sense resistance. Preposterous reason dictates Obama is Muslim for bowing to an Arab. Absurd logic scoffs at suggestion Donald Trump is anything but America’s great white hope. Right wing America – you need your head examined.
Anyone who’s seen the program When Animals Attack understand it almost always starts with nincompoops too stupid to grasp imminent danger.Yesterday afternoon the dock at Steveston B.C. catapulted stupid to the stratosphere. Hey, lets feed this wild animal! No wait, lets put this child in its face. Hahaha, it tried to kiss her, lets put our child even closer. NO STUPID! It wants to eat her, she looks like food! Hit play and watch stupid in action –
I laughed hard when reading my pre-election Trump post from August 2016. Written when politics were fathomable and Donald unimaginable, A reblog to remind myself of a simpler time, a time when Trump was merely a narcissistic lying nitwit buffoon, not president of the United States of America. Yikes.
Earlier this week Donald Trump blithered utter nonsense at a campaign rally in Florida, regurgitating fantasy the following day in Maine. Trump’s outbursts tend to flow within spillways of generalized chest thumping hubris, moronic sound bites selling Trump’s “brand” to America – this jibber-jabber gem was different. The nincompoop’s head, bloated by gases of maniacal impunity from truth or reason, pulled a nut salad from his ass.
Trump vehemently claimed to have seen a video showing $400 million being taken off an American airplane in Iran. Trump suggested the cash was ransom paid by America to release hostages. It wasn’t – the footage in question aired on Fox News showing released Americans stepping off a plane in Geneva. (full story linked below) Trump’s false assertion the video was “leaked” by Iran to “embarrass” America, in particular President Obama caught exchanging money for prisoners, went from simmer to boil.
Lisa Kadonaga, a geography professor at University of Victoria in Victoria B.C. thought her friends would get a kick out of “Garden Spicer”. She found a Spicer headshot, blew it up, cut it out, stuck it in shrubbery outside a local bank, snapped a photo and shared it with Facebook friends. Kadonaga’s joke, sparked by reports of Spicer meeting reporters at night in shadows of bushes outside the White House soon became a phenomenon.
Within hours, Twitter, Facebook and media shares prompted Kadonaga to upload it to Dropbox – a move that temporarily crashed the photo sharing site.
