2007 is almost over, and John Hawkins brings us an early Christmas present (or maybe it’s more along the lines of a lump of coal… you decide) in the worst quotes from Daily Kos of 2007.
How he’s able to pick just ten insane quotes from Daily Kos, I don’t know. There’s so much moonbattery, idiocy, paranoia, hatred, anger, and all around lunacy over there that I know I wouldn’t be able to narrow it down to such a small list. The website would be hilarious (unintentionally so, of course) if the Kwazy Kos Kids weren’t taken so damn seriously. Markos Moulitsas is one of the most powerful players in politics today. Democratic politicians regularly write for Daily Kos, and the Democratic presidential candidates couldn’t get to the 2007 Yearly Kos convention fast enough. These raving moonbats are very influential, indeed, and they are definitely part of what has forced the Democratic Party to shift so dangerously far to the left.
I won’t list all ten — visit Right Wing News to see them all. But here are my favorites:
“I wrote a diary a short time ago about how the Bush administration helped ruin my marriage. It wasn’t because my husband was a Bush supporter or anything…it was because of all the stresses from job loses, living without health insurance and getting sick, to my husband being forced to take a job where he wasn’t home much that helped ruin my marriage.” — angrybird
I saw this quote as a perfect example of BDS today. Liberal Democrats hate President Bush so much, that often they will blame him for anything and everything that goes wrong in their lives. This Kostard’s marriage didn’t last, and what was the President supposed to do about that? Intervene for her? Personally make sure her husband gets a good job, and that they both stay employed, so neither one of them gets stressed out, ever? Last time I checked, marriage was considered to be “For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, til death shall we part”, not “As long as we both have a job and health insurance, are healthy, and are not stressed out”. But I must clearly be mistaken.
I often find BDS to be a crazy mix of paranoia, egotism, anger, lunacy, and narcissism, all rolled together into one mentally-challenged moonbat. And this wackjob shows that rather perfectly, I think.
“I know I’m a Jewish lesbian and (Ahmadinejad would) probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon…
Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. I think he kind of looks like Kermit the Frog. Sort of. With smaller eyes. But that’s not all…
I want to be very clear. There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor — locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can’t help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding.” — sallykohn
This is, I think, another example of BDS gone rampant. A Jewish lesbian has “a crush” on Ahmadinejad because he doesn’t like George Bush. The fact that he hates the President and the United States in general excuses every horrible thing he has done and will do, which she names herself! But hey, for a Kostard, as long as you hate George W. Bush and the U.S., you’re A-OK with them. You can do whatever you want, as long as you make sure to call the United States the Great Satan fairly regularly and condemn anything President Bush does. Libs will be perfectly fine with that. Hate Dubya, and you can do anything. Moonbats will simply look the other way.
And for what it’s worth, in my opinion, the fact that a monster like Ahmadinejad hates President Bush only makes me like the President even more.
“I have never in my 50 years of life been more frightened then I am now. I have seen the arrogance of this White House and the massive damage done to our country. But the Katrina-size storm clouds are gathering folks. If we do not wake up now and flood Congress to impeach the President and Vice President, one year from now, Daily Kos may be banned and Markos himself may be disappeared, in a federal prison somewhere.
….This is deadly serious folks. This is not just another diary. We ignore this threat at our own peril. I would suggest even I in writing articles like this and the many writers at Daily Kos are personally at risk of being arrested in a future dictatorial United States. The government will use these writings as an excuse to put us away.
….I say WAKE UP Daily Kos!! If the people at Daily Kos cannot take this seriously and try and do something about it, then the United States, as a free country IS doomed. Enjoy your freedom to read and write at such sites as Daily Kos, because that freedom will be taken away WHEN Bush declares martial law.” — slw0606
This is the kind of paranoia that runs rampant among the Kwazy Kos Kids, and among leftists in general. Sometimes I wonder if they honestly believe the things they write. Do these idiots really think that George Bush is going to declare martial law and refuse to give up the presidency? And what is it that makes them so damn paranoid? The ironic thing is that it isn’t President Bush, or Republicans, or conservatives, seeking to censor and stifle opposing viewpoints. Its liberals and Democrats. You see it in the Fairness Doctrine; in the hatred towards Fox News and talk radio. You see it when Democrats riot against conservative speakers. They try to shut down opposing viewpoints constantly, but then tremble in their environmentally-friendly homes, fearful that Republicans are going to jail dissidents! I just find it hard to believe that they really believe what they are saying. But, when it comes to the Kostards, you never know.
“…We need to lose this war and not start the next one so that we can remain a free people. Diminished on the world stage? Perhaps, like Great Britain was diminished when it surrendered its colonial empire. But free.” — bluedogtxn
This is just another example of what every conservative already knows: they want the United States to fall. They claim they love their country. They claim to support the troops. But every leftist to say so is lying. They don’t support our troops, and their allegiance is to the U.N., not the United States. Cheering for an Iraq defeat is not unusual over at Daily Kos by any means, sadly enough. I just can’t help but wonder why it is that Democrats and liberals have to be so anti-United States, anti-war, anti-military. Almost every Democrat will probably name JFK and FDR as heroes of theirs, but those men were decidedly not anti-United States and not anti-military. They were willing to stand up and fight for their country, a country they loved. Leftists today hate America and love globalism. For them, we should be kneeling at the altar of the U.N. and the world leaders presiding there.
