“What more fitting tribute could there be to Nelson Mandela – a man so dedicated to forgiveness he invited his own captor to his inauguration – than for our country to lose our shit over a handshake.” – Jon Stewart
"How dare he?!" General O’Reilly shouted as he read the quote over his morning meal. This was an outrage! An outrage! How dare someone compare something to war?
Filled with anger, General O’Reilly glanced over at the private who had brought him his morning meal. The private seemed downtrodden and discouraged. There could only be one reason. “Private, did you read today’s briefing?” General O’Reilly asked.
The private solemnly nodded. General O’Reilly was not surprised. Of course such an outrageous quote about the physical dangers of a rapper’s job being similar to being “in war or something” would dampen the soldiers’ spirits. There was only one thing General O’Reilly could do: he would have to boost morale with a powerful speech.
After all the troops had been assembled, General O’Reilly took to the stage and offered his words of wisdom. “Brave heroes in this subtle but constant war, I urge you to ignore the words of Mr. West. Yes, his thoughtless comparison of something so trivial to an actual war may seem to undermine the seriousness and the severity of war, but I assure you, Mr. West’s words simply show that he has no true grasp of the true meaning of war. Mr. West has not been in Redmond, WA, where brave city officials have stood firm and ignored complaints about some signs encouraging people to use Merry Christmas. He has not fought the War on Christmas in Reno, where a tree still stands in celebration of Christmas, but is being referred to as a holiday tree instead. He has not battled against rebels in Texas who have ignored the state’s Merry Christmas law and instead instituted a secular Winter Dance. He did not fight in Florida, where true heroes in the War on Christmas convinced one town to apologize for banning religious Christmas decorations in a town holiday display. He is not facing the dangers of life in Georgia, where parents are being asked to attend a school holiday pageant that does not include the baby Jesus. He is not battling in Wisconsin or New Jersey, where Christmas songs are only being allowed if they’re not religious. He did not struggle with us in Rhode Island to courageously force the return of the word Christmas to the tree label. Mr. West knows nothing of the dangers of war like we do. THAT is war. THAT is the battlefield. YOU are the heroes! YOU are the brave soldiers in the War on Christmas! Don’t let ridiculous parallels between war and trivial matters get you down!”
Q:Just wondering if your passionate loathing of anti-vaxxers is solely based on their cultish clinging to debunked science and hypocritical/counterintuitive notion that they can impose choices on their kid(s) without regard to the effects on other kids or is it because you know someone who's been affected by their ignorance?
Actually it’s an opportunity to tell the truth about what an awful person/president that Ronald Reagan was.
Yeah, for real. Reagan should’ve thought about that before he supported apartheid.
Oh I see you’re a white supremacist, or white nationalist. Whatever, I don’t care about the difference.
Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who emerged as South Africa’s first black President after spending 27 years as a political prisoner, passed away at the age of 95.
While human beings around the planet Earth mourned the loss of a hero, the vile repugnant slime monsters, whom also go by…
I find it interesting that this whole entire article takes bits and pieces of comments from social networking sites, without knowing the political affiliation of the commenters seeing as how anyone can post anywhere, and uses those bits and pieces to try to paint a picture of an entire political party. No. These are individual thoughts. You don’t know their political affiliation. I could go on the democratic Facebook page and write a comment in all caps saying “BUSH IS A TERRORIST”. Does that make it that entire party’s belief? Does that make me a democrat because I posted there? The three under the “Libertarians are shitty people too” are only three people’s opinions. Last time I checked, three people don’t represent the attitude or beliefs of an entire political party. Neither do any of the others who commented. That represents the individuals’ character. Simply because they may or may not choose to align themselves with certain political beliefs and then express their own individual beliefs publicly, does not mean those are the beliefs, opinions, and feelings of the political party as a whole.
This is obviously a blatant attempt at slandering other parties to bolster the view of your own party by making them look like they are the only ones not saying things like this. I’m sure if you took a look at any of the posts about Mandela, on any Facebook page, you’ll find comments along the same lines.You also ignored the MAJORITY who didn’t call him a terrorist commie and expressed their regret at him passing and gratitude for all the things he accomplished during his time. I love how people manipulate current events and random specifically selected posts to best portray what they want portrayed out of context and then use the manipulated, carefully selected versions as propaganda. Thank goodness there are still people in this world who see directly through both major party’s bullshit.
Oh, shut the hell up.
Oh yes, what a splendid argument you have made good chap.
The only way it could have been more dignified is if it simply said “NO U”
Oh yes, smashing.
1. Who the hell are you?
