That Karl Rove Sit 'n Spin picture is priceless. :)

Ah, the sweet, sweet smell of Schadenfreuper never gets old.

what's the story with the imaginary O symbol and hitler's hands? I can't follow and refuse to click on any links.

"what's the story with the imaginary O symbol and hitler's hands?"

Apparently, Hitler once made this gesture and then swept his hands down / apart, signifying "Everything", or "You're safe!" or maybe "Just wait until I'm reincarnated as a black guy!"


Tommy

yes, it is true, Hilter was signaling Obama, he was able to see the future, an amazing fact, not known by many. Funny thing though, he had journaled once that there was one day he was not seeing so clearly, something about a bunker and Eva Braun....probalby nothing

I love reading these comments from the freaks, makes my day, thanks Tommy

BUAIDH NO BAS!

Interesting the poster should say this (MacDougall Clan motto, to conquer or die / victory or death).

Just last night I was watching a Netflix movie that was footage from White Supremacist rally with some supplementary footage from other locations. Of course it had a lot of folks in Nazi garb. But it also had almost as many folks in Irish/Scottish garb (ranging from the distinctive hats to sashes in plaid to kilts. Included bagpipes playing). I had never been aware of allegations of a connection between White Supremacists and kilts.

Need to do a little more research. But I am finding an inkling that while not all Scottish Games / Scottish - Irish heritage groups have any sort of white-power background, among the Supremecists there is a thread of the English nations being the blessed.

Didn't know the raised hand salute was used in the USA. Interesting.

Of course, could really blow the Freepers' minds by noting that the industrialists (that would be the Ayn Rand-loving 47% and especially that upper 1%) in the USA were in sympathy, if not support, of Hitler. This included the idea of sterilization and other forms of eugenics.

It was only after Pearl Harbor that we got into the war (and if you want to delve into tinfoil hat conspiracy, was Pearl Harbor a false flag attack ?)

Of course, involvement in WW II was a hotly debated topic. No groups was 100%. But the demographic of strong support of Hitler (and staying out of the war as a form of we'll take care of ourselves and not work to bring peace elsewhere, not even through diplomatic channels) were the upper class industrialists and medical establishment. (Speaking of the medical establishment, in Nazi Germany the group that was most likely to join the party were the medical doctors who then began a program of eugenics).

I believe it was Prescott Bush who both was thought to have ties to an attempted presidential assasination as well as found laundering money to Germany (funny how older Bush in the 20s and 30s defied a ban on illegally defying an embargo - sending money to support Germany. GHWB was big CIA with probable laundering money to poppy growers in Afghanistan and links to the Iran-Contra illegal weapons involvement. And GWB put the embargo on terrrorist organizations.)

Ford translated and distributed Nazi anti-semitic pamphlets (including comparing Jews to vermin).

etc.

BTW - just looked it up. By wiki, Mitt Romney's father lived 1907 - 1995 and became chairman and prez of AMC in 1954.

If you can't tell the difference between a winged staff with snakes wrapped around it and an eagle above a swastika, you're definitely a wingnut.

Perhaps the party whose propaganda arm seems to be addicted to Goebbels' Big Lie shouldn't be so quick to cast aspersions of Nazi-like behaviour.

Damn it, this has been a day from Hell.

On another subject, I think we need recheck the seals on some of the drums. I was over in the "Evolution is Not Science" tunnel the other night and popped open a random drum. It was based one of those "evolution is not science because it can't be tested because it happened in the past" articles.

[...] Science should be defined as using experimentation and observation to discover information about physical reality. Explanations of what happened in the ancient past cannot be verified using experimentation and observation. [...]

I never thought evolution made any sense. It's one reason I think science is overrated. [November 29, 2012 10:56:20 PM by kathsua]

I figured it was worth a quick skim, but as soon as I started reading I found that something was not right. I think most of the stupid must have leaked out somehow. One of the early replies was:

To: kathsua

It’s encouraging to see how retarded my children’s competition is.

Yep, math and science is useless stuff. Keep attending that bible school! [November 29, 2012 11:24:38 PM by Born to Conserve]


OK, that could have been a troll, but the first fifty replies were a (mostly) coherent discussion of how the scientific method could be applied to events that were not exactly reproducible, how isotope decay works, whether physical laws change over time, etc. Yes, there were a few "I trust God and God alone" replies, but on the whole it was mostly sane. It goes on for about 275 replies. I didn't read them all, but a random sampling indicates that the sanity persists to the end. Very weird.

Now I have to track down where all the batshit crazy got to after it leaked out.

--Kibitzer

Kibitzer - That's why I enjoy including the occasional sane Freeper post - it just throws the crazy into sharper relief.
