A big Bush backer

Sadly, No:

But even that is mild compared to Vox Day, for whom accusations that Bush always was a liberal are too timid to bother with. No, Vox says that Bush was always a socialist!

None of these former Bush cultists can admit that Dear Leader was the bee’s knees, gave them exactly what they wanted, was a living God, was the acme of conservatism. Because to admit that is to admit the fact that what they believe in — their ‘principles’, their ideology, all of which Bush personified — sucks and is a menace to humanity. It’s our job to deny them their grip, to kick them off the cliff along with Dear Leader. Because if we don’t, they’ll just find another Dear Leader, and the Cult will be restored. No mercy. Fuck these people.

Actually, what they don’t understand is that Bush’s anointed heir is Hillary Clinton. That’s why I’ve been predicting her victory for the last eighteen months. The problem for both the conservatives who are now realizing that they were suckered and the left-wingers who are in the process of replacing them as suckers is that they are looking at a game of Go and thinking it is Checkers.

And seriously, how do you read this blog or any of my columns and reach the conclusion that I am a former Bush cultist?

Bush is a socialist, which is why so much of his World Democratic Revolution language echoes Trotsky. So is Hillary, which is why her election won’t end the wars anymore than the election of a Democratic House and Senate did.

UPDATE: the Left truly is deranged. Here’s yet more evidence:

so why did vox day vote for him twice? i don’t have to read the fuckwit to make fun of him. fuck you pussies.

Just to set the matter straight, I have never voted for any member of the Bush family.

The road to Hell

You’d think my fellow scientist would understand the difference between hypothesis and causation:

Public schools mostly take religion for granted—it’s rife in athletics, in particular, but many of the ceremonies have prayers and ministers involved—so when a valedictorian speech damns her godless classmates to hell, it’s just a reflection of the culture.

It’s very strange that PZ should care one way or another over a young girl expressing her belief that [presumably] nonexistent souls will go to a [presumably] nonexistent place unless the individual acknowledges a [presumably] nonexistent being. Would he have been equally offended if she had said that her classmates’ auras would not go to fairyland if they refused to believe in Tinkerbell?

While Shannon Spaulding may be a valedictorian, neither she nor any other human being has the power to damn anyone anywhere. What she did was no different than warning someone that he is in the process of walking into a burning building and will burn to death if he does not modify his direction. To equate the delivery of such a warning with sending someone to a fiery death is an abuse of the English language.

No one sends anyone else to Hell. Objecting to an infernal afterlife is like complaining that driving south on Interstate 35 will take you to Texas. That’s where the road goes, so unless you take the exit provided, that’s where you’ll end up. No one’s going to make you turn off, your destination is your choice.

Don’t Think and Mustache!

Apparently Michael Medved believes there’s sufficient evidence to prove the existence of Nessie and Bigfoot, but not the North American Union:

So a badly photographed, information-free videotape is released that purports to be the Loch Ness monster… and instantly, Michael Medved touts it as “stunning evidence” that proves “Nessie” exists. Considering his infatuation with Bigfoot, and his belief that, except for a few bitter-enders, scientists all agree that Mr. Sasquatch exists, color me unsurprised.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to decide if I’m truly an Internet superintelligence, or if the “conservative” commentariat is simply so blitheringly stupid that I’m merely an average UI and it’s only the delta that makes me look like the uploaded love-child of Sir Isaac Newton and Marilyn vos Savant.

Shout all you like

They’ll just ignore you:

Congress’s week-long Memorial Day recess was expected to leave the bill in tatters. But with a week of action set to begin today, the legislation’s champions say they believe that the voices of opposition, especially from conservatives, represent a small segment of public opinion. Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), who led negotiations on the bill for his party, said the flood of angry calls and protests that greeted the deal two weeks ago has since receded every day.

It’s time to leave the Republican Party. You can stick around long enough to vote in the nomination process if you like, but you might as well start getting used to the idea that if you are at all conservative or pro-American, the Republican Party has no use or place for you. And why should they, when they’re more interested in competing for the favor of the 100 million Mexicans they plan to make citizens of the North American Union than the 21 million conservative Republicans who vote.

Those socialists in Vermont have the right idea in pushing for secession.
