Hello everybody, glad you could stop by. Welcome to America. Home of Fragile and the Scared. The Nation that doesn’t want to “embolden the enemy” by saying anything nice about them while we smoke ’em out of their holes. The Nation that’s going to round all the evil doers up and teach ’em a lesson, unless they say something mean about our troops – like call them a bunch of Doody Heads and hurt our feelings.
Even Hillary Clinton, who certainly isn’t some kind of pansy and has lots of testicular fortitude – would have run away from Reverend Wright screaming.
O’Reilly: What do you think when you hear another American Citizen say things like that?
Clinton: I would not have stayed in that church. I take offense to it.
That’s it, run way – Flee. That’ll show him. If you can’t take on the crazy reverend in the daishiki – how are you going to take on Al Qeada Hillary?
Oh, let this not be another defending Reverend Wright Post.
Well, it’s not. He’s toast, but what about all those things he said? Anyone else every say stuff like that before?
Anyone remember that crazy Colorado Professor who dared to hurt America’s poor little feelings by saying – the terrorist aren’t just a bunch a crazies and might have had a reason for 9/11? Remember Ward Churchill?
BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 4 — The University of Colorado staunchly defends its faculty’s rights of free speech and open academic inquiry. Most of the time.
But Friday, interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano launched an “academic investigation” that could lead to the firing of Ward Churchill, a tenured full professor who ignited a national firestorm by applauding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and condemning the victims as greedy, arrogant and cruel.
In a commentary he says he wrote on 9/11, Ward Churchill called some victims “little Eichmanns.” In a rambling, acidic commentary he says he dashed off within hours of the attacks, the 57-year-old professor of ethnic studies described the bankers and stock traders who died in the World Trade Center as “little Eichmanns.” He called their deaths a “penalty befitting their participation in . . . the ‘mighty engine of profit’ to which the military dimension of U.S. policy has always been enslaved.”
Thank God he didn’t mention anything about Chickens roosting.
Still they did eventually run a tenured professor out of town on a rail! – because well, y’know, we can’t have people saying that kind of stuff. It might scare the children. The tiny tiny, helpless little babies – THAT ARE RUNNING OUR COUNTRY!
Hey, anyone remember that crazy Colorado School teacher that dared to compared Bush to Hitler? Whatta Maroon that dork was, eh? Anyone Remember Jay Bennish?
Officials declined to say whether social studies instructor Jay Bennish faced disciplinary action, but his attorney, David Lane, said Bennish would be back in the classroom Monday “with full pay.”
Bennish had been on paid leave from Overland High School in suburban Aurora since March 1 while Cherry Creek School District determined whether he violated a district rule that teachers must present balancing viewpoints in the classroom.
During a Feb. 1 lecture in a geography class, Bennish said some of Bush’s State of the Union address the night before “sounds a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler used to say.”
Man, what was that guy smoking? Good thing we put the smack down on him. We can’t possible tolerate anyone making the suggestion that an American President could have anything at all in common with a crazed genocidal dictator..
That’s just plain CRAZY talk, right?
He sounds almost like that nutty comedian chick. What was her name, oh yeah – Rosie O’Donnel.
Rosie who dared to say on her first appearance on the View that “Radical Christianity is as threatening to us as Radical Islam.”
Oh. MY. GOD. How could she say that? It’s not like any radical Christians have set off bombs or deployed chemical biological weapons like Anthrax on American soil. I mean, as long as you don’t count the Selma Church Bombings, WACO, Oklahoma City, the bombing of dozens of gay clubs and shootings and murder at abortion clinics by people such as friends of Randal Terry of Operation Rescue and the Bombing of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta by Eric Robert Rudolph.
Except for all that, it’s not like we’ve every had any Christian Terrorism. What the frak was she thinking?
We can have people saying stuff like that IN AMERICA. We’re all like Lee Greenwood, we’re Proud To Be Americans, where at least we know we’re free (to be harassed, harried and threatened for speaking our minds.) Where the hell does she think she gets the right, or the freedom to say batshit like that?
amendment 1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Oh ok, fine – so Congress can’t make it illegal – but we can sure make it pretty damned uncomfortable can’t we?
Where did Rosie get the naked gall to suggest the the deaths of a half-million Iraqis might just be the fault of – gasp – America. …
