Lefties Gone Wild

John Hawkins of Right Wing News presents "The 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes for 2005." Here is a selection of this year's wisdom from the lefty supergeniuses of our time:

38) "I know people who are embarrassed to be American. They don't like showing their passports. It's becoming a scary place. It takes someone very brave not to be quiet, someone who doesn't mind death threats, their life being turned upside down, news cameras outside their door. There is no freedom of speech in America anymore. They are not living up to the constitution. There's so much fear in America and control." -- Gillian Anderson

37) "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for..." -- Howard Dean

36) "George W. Bush is evil. He is a terrorist. He is evil. He is arrogant. And he is out of control." -- Julianne Malveaux

31) "But in my darker moments, I wonder whether the war wasn't a cover to persuade good, open-minded folk like Glenn (Reynolds) to enable the theocratic impulses of the Republican base." -- Andrew Sullivan

20) "Until your daddy learns that it's not 'fun' to kill, keep your doggies and kitties away from him. He's so hooked on killing defenseless animals that they could be next!" -- From a PETA booklet called "Your Daddy Kills Animals," which was designed to be handed out to children

17) "I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry." -- Louis Farrakhan speculates that New Orleans was deliberately flooded

10) "This President is never gonna do the right thing. I think somewhere deep down inside him he takes a lot of joy about losing people, if he thinks they vote Democrat or if he thinks they're poor, or if he thinks they're in a blue state, whatever his reasons are not to rescue those people." -- Air America's Randi Rhodes speculates that Bush wanted Democrats to die in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina

9) "What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that there’s not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq....They target and kill journalists ... uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity...." -- Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley

7) "George Bush doesn't care about black people...They're giving the Army permission to go down and shoot us." -- Kayne West on the rescue efforts in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina

6) "For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted [and] in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal. But let me ask you this: Would you render the same support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?" -- University Professor Ward Churchill on supporting soldiers who frag their officers

3) "Do our government's poorly paid contract killers deserve our "support" for blindly following orders?" -- Ted Rall

1) "Real freedom will come when [U.S.] soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors." -- Warren County Community College adjunct English professor, John Daly

The list includes Randi Rhodes, Howard Dean, Jimmy Carter, Ralph Nader, Senator Dick Durbin, Paul Begala, John Kerry, Helen Thomas, Eric Alterman and Bill Maher among many other great Americans.

Sadly they added quotes that displeased the wing-nuts of the Right by George W. Bush, Tom Delay and Pat Robertson.

My quote came from The Electric Chair for Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell

You should read Response to Criticism of column “The Electric Chair for Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell

My quote was

2) "If I had my way, I would see Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell strapped down to electric chairs and lit up like Christmas trees. The better to light the way for American Democracy and American Freedom!" -- Democratic Talk Radio's Stephen Crockett

The quote was strong and correct in the full context of the article. I stand by it 100 percent!

I notice the Right Wingers do not add links to the full articles on the subjects... they are cowards.

Stephen Crockett,

When you advocate violence against people you disagree with on political issues, you are abandoning the democratic approach of solving disputes through dialogue. Naturally, we conservatives prefer to conserve our democracy, rather than to switch over to your preferred government by gangsterism, much like Saddam ran Iraq, simply executing his opponents or anyone who deviated from the party line. It's an irony that Democratic Talk Radio disdains democracy, but to be called wing-nuts by such extremists shows we are on the right path.

The ignorant and hateful are nothing new. The tide of history is against the war mongers, the murderers, the greedy, the corrupt, the ignorant sheep that follow them.

With each generation, their numbers are dying off. They'll always exist, but only as arm chair "philosophers" and trying to find like minded children on blogs.
