    BOOOOO!!! Tea Partiers
    BOOOOO!!! Glenn Beck
    BOOOOO!!! Fanatics

    Down With Fanatics:

    If I had my way with violent men
    I’d simmer them in oil,
    I’d fill a pot with bitumen
    And bring them to the boil.
    I’d execrate the terrorist
    And those who harbour him,
    And if I weren’t a moralist
    I’d tear them limb from limb.

    Fanatics are an evil breed
    Whom decent men should shun;
    I’d like to flog them till they bleed,
    Yes, every mother’s son,
    I’d like to tie them to a board
    And let them taste the cat,
    While giving praise, oh thank the Lord,
    That I am not like that.

    For we should love the human kind,
    As Jesus taught us to,
    And those who don’t should be struck blind
    And beaten black and blue;
    I’d like to roast them in a grill
    And listen to them shriek,
    Then break them on the wheel until
    They turned the other cheek.

    I believe the poem is non-ideological in it’s condemnation of fanaticism.

  3. Wow, the left is so scared that they have to just make s.h.i.t up now. I love it.

    You guys are really going to lose big in November.
    ……………………….

  4. Barry Summers

    Wow, the left is so scared that they have to just make s.h.i.t up now. I love it.

    What are you referring to, Tim Peck(1)?

    This is Tim #1, right?

  5. JWTJr

    “I believe the poem is non-ideological in it’s condemnation of fanaticism.”

    I wasn’t referring to the poem, I was referring to your comments that began the thread.

  6. Barry Summers

    Will you say the same about the fanatics on the left Barry?

    Well, I don’t know. Which lefty fanatics would you like me to Boo?

    BTW, did you see that Glenn Beck has started a news website that he calls “The Blaze”? Why ‘Blaze’, you ask? Here’s what he said:

    “Flame is a powerful image. It has long stood for a burning truth. A truth that is not consumed.”

    Get it? Beck is comparing himself to the Burning Bush. That guy is not just fanatic, but full-on bats***. Anyone who believes in him deserves a “BOOOOOO!!!!”.

  7. JWTJr

    Beck is a raging bipolar living on the edge who is woefully short on medication.

    Your theory that there are no fanatics on the left is funny.

  8. Barry Summers

    Your theory that there are no fanatics on the left is funny.

    Point out where I ever said that. If you can’t, admit you are a liar.

  9. Barry Summers

    OK, dude shooting up Discovery Channel is actually a left-wing environmentalist whackjob.

    Emphasis on whackjob. Have you read his manifesto? He calls for “stopping human birth, not encouraging it,” and “stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that.”

    Not exactly mainstream progressive thinking…

  10. Barry Summers

    Ed Shultz is just as messed up as Beck. Maybe more.

    I don’t know about him being worse than Beck, but I’m on record as saying that Ed Schultz is:

    “possibly as corrosive to the Left as Rush has been to the Right. When someone calls himself ‘progressive’, and yet seems to be all about self-promotion and making a heap of money, I lose interest in listening to him.”

    Schultz is a straight party machine Democrat (former Republican) who poses as a progressive – Beck is a lunatic demagogue who will do real damage to this country if he is able to build a movement of fear-based, hate-based, cloaked-in-religion baloney like he is drifting towards.

  11. Barry Summers

    And Manson said the White Album made him do it. Whackjob.

  12. Dionysis

    “Here’s what he (Beck) said:

    “Flame is a powerful image. It has long stood for a burning truth. A truth that is not consumed.”

    He also said this:

    “While speaking during his “Restoring Honor” rally Saturday, Beck said that he’d held an original speech given by George Washington.

    Beck remarked, “I held the first inaugural address written in his own hand by George Washington.”

    But then…

    “Beck did receive a special VIP tour of the archives, arranged by an as-yet unidentified member of Congress. During that tour, he did get a peek inside the “legislative vault,” which isn’t open to ordinary visitors…”

    …”But Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper insists that Beck didn’t lay a finger on any precious documents, much less George Washington’s inaugural address. That would be a major violation of policy,” she adds.

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs1/2010/09/01/national-archives-accuses-glenn-beck-lying-george-washington-speech/

    Now who are you going to believe, Glenn Beck or that radical archivist Susan Cooper?

  13. Barry Summers

    Are those bedbugs at the bottom of all your comments, Tim Peck(1)? I hear those are getting bad…

    Another right-wing whopper:

    Ronald Reagan helped liberate Buchenwald after WWII

    False: Reagan spent the entire war in Hollywood making pro-war movies for the Army, and never went anywhere near Buchenwald until decades later. But that didn’t stop him from telling Israeli Prime Minister Shamir in the Oval Office that he had.

  14. Barry Summers

    Still waiting, Junior. ‘Cause after that thing with Cecil last week, we all know what a stickler you are for people providing facts to back up their statements.

  15. Barry Summers

    ??????? ??

    I know I don’t have to translate for you, Jr., ’cause you’re the Pashto expert.

  16. JWTJr

    I’m not sure what you’re waiting for Barry. Are you saying the left has no fanatics? That the left spectrum has no tail end? Funny. I’m certainly not having that ridiculous conversation.

    I can’t believe I forgot … Olbermann. The biggest kook/fanatic of all. Bathtub boy is already in the fanatic hall of fame.

  17. Barry Summers

    I’m not sure what you’re waiting for Barry. Are you saying the left has no fanatics?

    No, liar. Those are the words you keep trying to put in my mouth. Obviously there are fanatics on the left, and I never said otherwise.

    Are you so desperate to feel like you’re winning an argument, that you make up the other person’s side and then mock them for how ridiculous it is? Pathetic.

    There’s another Pashto word that describes you:

    ??? ????

  18. JWTJr

    “Well, I don’t know. Which lefty fanatics would you like me to Boo?”

    Go ahead and boo some. Just for fun.

  19. JWTJr

    Its definitely the first time I’ve been called a lefty fanatic. Maybe this is a new turn for me.

  20. Dionysis

    “I heard on MSNBC that Glenn Beck misspelled a word. Is this true?
    ……………………………..”

    Here’s what’s true: that you’re not at all phased by the blatant lies of a self-promoting nutjob in pursuit of your extremist whacko Shangri-la pipe dream. You and the other so-called ‘libertarians’ (which is a code word for cheapskates that want everyone else to pony up while they grouse and snivel about ‘taxes’) go and pleasure yourselves to the screeching sound of Beck and his little boy blackboard game and his chronic crying.

  21. JWTJr

    I’m still waiting for you to boo a lefty. I’ll not hold my breath as you prob agree with all the fanatics on that side.

  22. JWTJr

    This was fun, but its gotten boring.

    How about this … Molton is a single layer guy. He just makes surface observations. I thought being a cartoonist meant you had to have some wit to go along with drawing skills.

  23. Barry Summers

    Gotta love those Pashtun. They have a word for one who doesn’t bother to refute it when he’s called a liar, and even seems to enjoy it:

    ??????

  24. JWTJr

    Barry, now that you are a Pashtun expert as well, you understand why what Cecil was saying was so crazy.

    Welcome brother.

  25. bobaloo

    Violent teabagger goes wild, shoots people, takes hostages. No, wait, never mind.

    Violent leftist goes nuts, blows up multiple sites out of anger. No, wait, never mind.

    We can play the blame game all day long Tim. Are you in any way in agreement with Rudolph actions or his beliefs?

  26. The Trolls Troll

    Man, can’t we all just get along? If I could only have one wish, I would wish to give everyone in the world a great, big hug.

  27. Piffy!

    Molten sure does a good job using hot-button issues as a substitute for his lack of talent and creativity.

    Seriously, he’s really good at it.
