"Fascism": If it Weren't so Sad, it'd be Funny
Monday, November 17, 2008
Newt Gingrich expresses his fear of those big, scary homo-intellectuals:
I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion.Like Yglesias and Atrios, I was tempted to find this statement hilarious. But then, I performed this Google search. And stumbled upon today's humorless liberal alert:
ALOHA, Ore. -- A 20-year-old was attacked in Aloha Tuesday, Nov. 11, when she told a man that she was gay. He allegedly "pounded" her in the face with a rock after learning her sexual orientation.Apparently, getting beaten in the head with rocks is the new homo-intellectual "Sieg Heil".
“The suspect became angry and told the woman that was disgusting and she was going to hell," said Sgt. David Thompson with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. “The suspect jumped on the victim as she was face down. He held her down and began striking her in the face and head with a rock and his fists. The victim was eventually able to get free and she ran away.”
And speaking of mixing rocks and "traditional religion":
A young rape victim, thought to be as young as 13, has been buried up to her neck and stoned to death in Somalia, according to reports.Hmmm...Rape=adultery=death by stoning of a 13 year old girl. That's some serious traditional religion you got there. Maybe we should throw in a traditional witch-burning to go with? Which brings us to the quiz section of our program. Is fascism better known historically for:
The girl said she had been raped by three men. Quoting Islamic law, local authorities said she was guilty of adultery — punishable by death in some Muslim countries.
a) forcing society to allow consenting adults to love whoever they choose, or b) killing/maiming people?
Sad. Just sad.
