Andy Schlafly an Idiot

If you want a good laugh, you should follow the link to this article, written by Andy Schlafly (yes, he is the son of the notorious nutbag, Phyllis) found in his bastard creation Conservapedia. It is hilarious, unintentionally. Here are the first two paragraphs for the entry on Barack Obama. Remember, Conservapedia calls itself the trustworthy encyclopedia.

Barack Hussein Obama II (allegedly born in Honolulu, August 4, 1961) served as a first-term Democratic Senator from Illinois (2004-2008) and then, along with his running mate Joseph Biden, won the presidential election after twenty-three months of campaigning, raising and spending an unprecedented $650 million, most of which came from anonymous donors. An apparent Muslim, Obama could use the Koran when he is sworn into office.

Obama has espoused the socialist idea of "spreading the wealth, in other words raising the tax rates on business and the wealthy to a burdensome level in order to redistribute their income to low income individuals, many of whom don't currently pay income taxes. His health care plan forces employers to purchase health care or pay a fine and will force many into a poorly run single payer system. To announce his trip to Berlin in July 2008, Obama used posters which show a marked similarity to posters of Lenin. During Obama's youth in Hawaii, he developed a strong, almost Father/Son relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, a known Communist. For these reasons and others, he is generally considered to hold Marxist/Socialist views - views directly contrary to those of most Americans. And it is because of these beliefs that he has kept hidden from the view of the general public that many are suspicious of his agenda for the future of the US.
Oh my.

Conservapedia then provides 15 bullet point items that purport to prove that Obama will likely be the first Muslim president. Aside from the utter falsity of these items, I can't help but wonder who cares and what is the big deal if we were to have a Muslim president? I believe the Constitution provides for religious freedom.

Oh, and tell this young man's mother a Muslim cannot become president.

I hope you're referring to Conservapedia. ;)

Seriously, it's been around for a while. Check out the section on evolution v. creationism. If I didn't know these clowns were serious, I'd say it came straight out of the Onion.

I would fail that student.

I thought it was rather a jolly read, old chap. It has footnotes, so I presume, old fellow, that you can provide evidence which contradicts the footnotes.

Right?

Other Side said...

Oh my. Up to this point I had been willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, daddio. I was willing to believe there was actually some sense behind the more outrageous and DiGaudio-like comments you had made the past couple of years.

No more.

I am not going to spend one iota of effort refuting any "fact" that Schafly cherry-picked. I'll let Wiki do it. I have better things to do like fixing the outside damage to the house caused by ice and snow.

Maybe someday you'll develop a sense of humor, like the one shown by Shlafly in his essay.

Then again, maybe not.

Oh, now it's a humorous piece. I thought Schafly was creating the "trustworthy" encyclopedia.

Of course, it does confirm my hypothesis that most everything [some] conservatives spout is a joke.
