Is this rich, or what? Joy Behar has been nominally “religious” in the past, only alluding to the fact that she’s Catholic, but when it comes to all others besides herself (see “Republicans” or “Conservatives”), religion has always been a bad thing.
Yet today she seems to go whole-hog (pun intended) to defend Obama’s recent National Prayer Day Breakfast speech, where he tries to invoke scripture, saying that Jesus Christ would be in favor of his wealth redistribution plans via increased taxes on the wealthy, i.e.,”socialism.” And Joy finds Jesus.
She argues with Elisabeth Hasselbeck that the right must have forgotten the “meek shal inherit the earth” part of the bible.
Joy, you should be very careful citing scripture, especially if you don’t know it yourself.
What does the meek inheriting the earth have to do with Jesus supporting taxing the wealthy? What about the passage from 2 Thessalonians, 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat?”
Joy, thou doth not knowest where thy speaketh from.
I’ve been stewing on this and stewing on this figuring out the right way to convey how I feel about it, and I’ve been struggling with just the right words to describe my sentiment. I read a fabulous screed by Deebow over at BlackFive, but it wasn’t until I saw the headline in a Weekly Standard piece today that quoted Lt. Col. Allen West (R-FL) on this matter. I couldn’t have said it better myself:
‘Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell’
Yes, you got that right. Congressman West has weighed in on this flap over the Marines taking a piss on dead Taliban terrorists, sending an email to the Weekly Standard, who got his permission to print what he said. Here’s a portion of his commentary:
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
Joe was one of the heroes who held douchebag Jared Loughner down while awaiting the arrival of the police. And guess what else? Joe is a registered gun ower and carrier, and as he ran out of the Safeway, he heard all the people screaming “SHOOTER! SHOOTER!” He first thought about shooting him with his (lawfully-carried) gun, but when he saw the dirtbag was being held down already, he realized no lethal force was necessary at that point, and that he could contain the prick until the cops came.
Joe Zamudio is a TRUE HERO and a true patriot! He is an American who did what he felt necessary, and is a legal gun-owner who carries, but when the decision time came, he knew he didn’t need to use his weapon. THAT, my friends, is what a responsible gun owner and carrier is like. I wonder how soon it will be before the wussy Sheriff will come after him because he had a GUN that day?
Wow… just wow. All the other interviews I’ve seen today with Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, he only thinly veiled his accusations at the Tea Party, conservative talk radio, and Fox News. However tonight on Geraldo, Sheriff Dupnik indicted BY NAME both Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin as people who he sees as responsible for the horrific mass shooting in Arizona on Saturday. Sheriff Dupnik even admits, in his responses, that he is a member of the “left,” and that he thinks conservatives are responsible for the all the anger in this country. Has the good Sheriff never been to the DailyKos website? /sarc
By the way, don’t you think for one minute that Geraldo himself didn’t (probably), off-camera, prompt him to do so. This is just a supposition on my part, but knowing Geraldo’s past rants about gun control, his anti-Tea-Party sentiment, and anti-anti-illegal-alien views, it would not surprise me one bit. Gerlado thinks all white Americans are bigots against all “brown” people, and he is no fan of the Tea Party. All you have to do is Google his name and “Tea Party,” and you will find he’s made a living off of accusations in the past that the Tea Party is a racist movement. He is a freakin’ clueless sycophant of the left.
However, since Mr. Johnson said it so succintly, I will just say “…what he said.”
He’s also correct that the Sheriff may be issued a gag order by the courts if he doesn’t shut his stupid trap. He’s an official who is ACTIVELY part of this investigation, and he’s making public statements about his opinions on motive? He must recuse himself when the trial does eventually happen.
