13 March 2016. Evangelical Nutters and Islamist Radicals are the SAME Under the Skin

01 GOP nutters



Decent Christians and Normal Muslims face the same foe… those who preach hatred and violence in the name of their creeds. That isn’t Christianity… that isn’t Islam. Full stop. Do note well that Fundies are the same whatever their exterior… the Muslim Brotherhood and the Born-Agains are true “milk brothers” (Russian idiom for men who’ve had sexual relations with the same woman)… both of these sorts preach the same rot and want the same violence against “infidels”. Of course, if we could set these sorts against each other in the Texas desert, with no innocents about, that’d solve it, wouldn’t it? I’d charge admission to watch the fun (I’d insist on having the beer n’ brats concession)…

21 November 2014. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Rich Lowry Parades His Ignorance of All Things Russian Yet Again

On page 13 of the print edition of the 17 November 2014 National Review, Rich Lowry paraded his stupidity and ignorance of all things Russian. He wrote, “in all the Ukraine minus the Crimea and the THREE eastern provinces controlled by ‘pro-Russian separatists’ (sic)”. OUCH! The righties get it wrong again! Firstly, the patriots control TWO of the former oblasts in the ex-eastern Ukraine… the Lugansk People’s Republic (the former Lugansk Oblast) and the Donetsk People’s Republic (the former Donetsk Oblast). “Two” and “three” are different, we all learned that in kindergarten. Perhaps, the Count from Sesame Street should hit Rich Lowry with a real Soupy Sales “pie in the face”. At present, the Republic of the Crimea (formerly, the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea under the Ukraine) and the City of Federal Significance of Sevastopol (both under the Ukraine and the RF, Sevastopol isn’t part of the Crimea politically) are part of the Russian Federation, and the DNR and LNR are independent entities (federated in the Union of People’s Republics of Novorossiya). Of course, Mr Lowry doesn’t know this, so, any of his comments on the Russian/Ukrainian situation are crank and without any value whatsoever (this is true of all rightwing American commentators, especially, invincible ignoranuses such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, Bill O’Reilly, and Patrick Buchanan). In all, four former “objects of federal significance” in the Ukraine are now free of Uniate fascist misrule. Also, do note that Mr Lowry didn’t mention that the KPU and Party of Regions weren’t on the ballot due to neo-Nazi elements in the junta (after all, it glorifies the Nazi collaborators of the VOV). A rather important detail, no?

Well… it gives you the measure of the Republican Party’s intelligence and of the intelligence of its obsequious running dogs in the media (note their utter and united silence about Initiative 594, Prop 67, and Howie Hawkins in the last election), doesn’t it? After all, we’re talking about a faction that adores Sarah Palin… a poseur who quit as governor of a state to take a well-paid media position. None dare call her a media whore… nor the idiots like Rod Dreher who defend her. If they can’t count… need I go on? The Republicans ARE the “Stupid Party”… ’nuff said!

15 May 2012. The People at Monomakhos Should Learn to Read Before Commenting…

A smarkach on Monomakhos with the “username” Nikos attacked me for naming Perich instead of Jannakos as DC Dean… actually, I reported Jannakos as the prospective Dean first, then, received reports that Perich was going there “to prepare the way” for him. Obviously, “Nikos”, whoever they really are, didn’t read the first post that I put up! This gives all and sundry a good indication of the level of sophistication, care, and assiduousness of the posters on this questionable (at best, and speaking charitably) site. Actually, I think that the “Nikos” wanted to make a personal snide comment about me… in which case, the fact that they hid behind a username was cowardly and “below the salt”. This submission, like all of mine, goes out over my initials (or full name).

There be plenty of poseurs and gaping jackanapes out there. If they hide behind usernames, what does that tell you about them? I needn’t go any further, need I? Have a cleansing laugh, cross yourself, and pass the jug. There’s no shortage of arseholes out there… and it’s not going to get any better in the short term. Be good, kids… and, frankly, why trust a site that’s nothing but a bunch of opinionated blozos (they do NONE of the serious reporting that’s done here)? In any case, Monomakhos only attracts less than 5 percent of my readership… for good reason, there’s NEVER anything of substance there. There be boogeymen out there… they’re not dangerous, but they DO make much noise. Do bite the coin…
