Quote(s) of the Week (Early Contender)


"In the early 50s our country was infiltrated by the communist party. Now they're doing everything they can to brainwash our public... This thing they're putting on our TVs, it's a brainwash unit! Get your kids the hell out of college. They're brainwashing them!"

-- Anonymous angry white guy who attended one of Glenn Beck's "9-12 Tea Parties" over the weekend, apparently referring to the digital converter box soon to be required on all analog televisions

"Burn the books! The ones in college, the brainwashing books, like the evolution crap!"

-- Anonymous angry white woman, responding to the above comment

"I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids."

-- General Jack D. Ripper, Dr. Strangelove

I am seriously a privacy FREAK (yeah, I know, in my dreams), but I hope to Christ that someone is watching these nuts. Also, I just read, on CNN.com, that Obama is - THANK GOD - starting to loosen up restrictions where Cuba is concerned. What do you think these maniacs will do with THAT info? I really, really fear for our president. These people make Hinckley's Jodie Foster obsession look positively quaint.

As a member of Glenn Beck's audience he's partially correct about that "thing" on TV being a brainwashing unit.

One must ask the question; When will the inmates be running the asylum?

I just cant stop laughing at the concept of those knuckle-dragging, sibling fucking douchebags tea-bagging each other.

I wouldn't be worrying so much about the brainwashing so much as the shackling debt a student incurs during his or her college education.

Additionally, *sigh*

Be careful, Mr. President. I think he's drunk.

Someone needs to gag Glenn Beck to put him out of everyone's misery.

Do these people not realise how stupid and ignorant of reality they sound?

Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room.

The GOP has really leveraged this whole "teabag" thing on their fringe, haven't they?

So...the government is using our digital converter boxes to spy on us? As we watch TV? Ummm...how? Where are they getting the money and manpower to sift through the millions of supposed video feeds coming from every house in the USA every single day? Exactly HOW are those boxes transmitting images? And what about people who have newer TVs and don't use the boxes?

And why is it people who scream about brainwashing are the only ones who exhibit clear signs of it? Seriously, do NONE of these people think for themselves or attempt to apply logic to their theories? Do they even know why they hate communism so much?

Someone needs to give these people a hug, a pacifier, tuck them into bed for nap time and tell them it's gonna be all right.

I've got a fantastic idea - let's find a way to harness stupidity as fuel!
No risk of running out of that, is there?

Jesus was a Communist. I'm going to burn in hell now, aren't I? Yay!

Amy said...

To add to what DeadBessie said, not only the people that have newer tv's, most people have cable, and also don't need the box.

So, who is the government brainwashing? The 5% of The People who don't have a new tv, OR cable tv?

Riiiight. That's effective.

Somewhere in my head a joke is floating contrived of teabagging and precious bodily fluids...
