Mahmoud Malkin

While reading the New York Times, you know that "liberal" paper, the one that published the first story about Whitewater and the Clintons that led to a presidential impeachment and the paper that published all the phony intelligence about Iraq that Dick Cheney fed to Scooter Libby who fed to Judith Miller who fed on breakfast while transcribing the lies. Then Cheney would go on Meet the Press and say, "I read in the New York Times today..." completing the circle of deception. Yeah, that one. I was reading it today and saw the story about the latest religious and extremist "to do" list of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. After "1. Build nuclear bomb tell world to go 'F' themselves; 2. Start war with Israel through Hezbollah" and "3. Call for Israel to be destroyed and deny the Holocaust took place," is number 4 -- purge "liberals and secularists" from Iranian universities. (Number 5 is "get replacement supply of khaki colored Members Only jackets if mine wears out.)

I thought this was a good blog topic but as usual Andrew Sullivan beat me to it and throwing in a joke about how this could be mistaken for a quote by Michelle Malkin. For those of you who don't know who she is (you're lucky) let's just say she is a dark-haired Ann Coulter-type wannabee with less publicity but about the same mixture of insanity and venom dripping from her writings. The quote from the official Iranian news service which means the President was, "Today, students should shout at the president and ask why liberal and secular university lecturers are present in the universities." Ask yourself if this quote could come or in fact has come from the mouths of Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Michael Savage (who would probably suggest hanging them too), Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly. Kathrine Harris recently said non-Christians shouldn't even be in public office. I don't have Lexis-Nexis otherwise I'm sure I could get Newt Gingrich or Tom Delay quotes but I think you get the point.

So what is the difference between being Americans and Iranians being crushed by the vice of religious extremists in leadership positions who hate vice and liberals and dissent and all those who aren't their religion? Who want to "purge" people from universities and government and broadcast booths? Who listen to a "higher father" to guide them and their guided missiles? Our religious extremists' names are easier to pronounce.

Don't forget George's "Lower Father" who once said that only believers can be considered citizens.

Jefferson said the tree of liberty had to be watered with the blood of patriots, but I'm afraid that old tree never did take root well enough to survive the winds of religion.

Let the prophets and seers and madmen and preachers and shamans and the rest of the twisted and demented idiots have it. It's too late to save anything.

Westfield - was that non-Christians or non-cretins?

Either way:

The difference, of course, is that extremist Christians have one less book to read. :)

Harris is quite a piece of work -

God is the one who chooses our rulers. And if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women and if people aren’t involved in helping godly men in getting elected than we’re going to have a nation of secular laws.

If God chooses our rulers, then what is the point of elections?
