Right Wing Nut House



Filed under: Blogging, Media, Politics — Rick Moran @ 8:45 am

The posting at Obama’s “Organizing for America” website that referred to conservative opponents of health care reform as “Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders” has, unfortunately been taken down. No explanation has been forthcoming for why it was allowed to go up in the first place but, hey! Stuff happens, right? Forgive and forget, eh? No harm, no foul.

But I must confess to being a little disappointed. Not because the opposition sees conservatives as “Right Wing Domestic Terrorists.”

We are.

But because I haven’t been whipped into a frenzy yet by that famous television network Fox Propaganda Network. (Did anyone else notice the weird, bizarrely haphazard manner in which the author capitalized letters? “American Democratic Process” but not “treacherous leaders?”)

Given how boring my life has been lately, a little frenzy would be a welcome break. I could really dig getting all lathered up, foaming at the mouth, ranting incoherently at the Communists who are trying to impose Marxist-Leninist ideals and programs on America.

I guess I’ll have to settle for a night of passion with my Zsu-Zsu. And although I often foam at the mouth and get lathered up when in the throes of connubial bliss with my love, I draw the line at ranting incoherently about Communism. Kinda kills the mood, if you know what I mean.

Frenzy or no, the attraction to being a domestic terrorist lies in the sublime effect that the terrorist lifestyle has on one’s outlook toward political opponents. No need to argue logically, or even call liberals dirty names. Just blow the bastards up if they disagree.

Simple, but quite effective judging by the reaction by many to the Mohamed cartoons. Nobody cares if you suspend Jesus on the cross in a glass jar full of urine. But put a funny hat and a comical beard on the Prophet (PBUH) and KABOOM! No more critics of Mohamed. Note the extreme care Yale Press just took to avoid such a fate when they decreed a book about the reaction to the Mohamed cartoons would be published without…the Mohamed cartoons.

Roger Kimball writing at PJ Media a few weeks ago:

I’d like to second the desideratum expressed by the British journalist Charles Moore at the time: “I wish,” Moore wrote in the Telegraph, “someone would mention the word that dominates Western culture in the face of militant Islam — fear. And then I wish someone would face it down.”

Is Yale stepping up to the plate? “Good idea!” you say. “About time someone had the courage to investigate that episode of insanity. I mean, really: you publish a handful of satirical cartoons and then adherents of the ostentatiously misnamed ‘religion of peace’ go postal, start burning down Danish embassies across the globe, issuing death threats to the cartoonists, etc.”

How great would it be to strike that kind of fear in the breast of liberals every time they felt like writing some nonsensical screed about conservatives? The effect a little terror would have on their delicate psyches would be positively delicious.

Unfortunately, I know nothing of explosives and, given my coarse mechanical aptitude, I’d probably end up blowing myself up like Bill Ayers’ terrorist buddies back in the day. Back then, we had real domestic terrorists - or at least they played one on TV. The whole Weather Underground thing always had the stink of sanctimony about it rather than the religious fanaticism, and belief in a higher cause that al-Qaeda demonstrates on a regular basis.

Lefty terrorists at that time were not suicide bombers. It is doubtful the idea even occurred to them. They were too selfish, too self centered to die for anything greater than their own heroic image of themselves. Spoiled rich kids throwing a tantrum with home made dynamite and C-4 instead of flinging their Erector Set through the window. Lethal, but something of a bizarre parody of dedicated Marxists or wacko Islamists.

No matter. I must report that real right wing terrorists are equally pathetic creatures. McVeigh and his buddies may have had a better idea of what they were doing thanks to their military training, but demonstrated similar cluelessness about how to be truly terrifying. Yes, blowing up the federal building in Oklahoma city was a heinous crime but Clinton didn’t blame the bombers, he blamed Rush Limbaugh. I wonder how McVeigh felt about that?

I guess we better face it. We Americans just don’t do terrorism very well. We’re not ignorant enough to be as fanatical, dedicated, and determined to die as al-Qaeda. Apparently, however, the OFA believes that we on the right may indeed possess the right stuff to at least approximate what Islamists pulled off on 9/11. Their confidence in us is inspiring and if they’re very lucky, like those liberals who try to appease the Islamists by not trying to annoy them, we will blow them to smithereens last.

I only hope I can live up to their expectations.

I suggest rather than waiting until we right wing terrorists make it to heaven to enjoy those 72 virgins, we skip the formalities of killing ourselves and indulge our fantasies today. Think of the inducement to recruiting fellow right wing domestic terrorists that would have! We’d be beating potentials off with a stick. I daresay even conservative women would want to get in the act if they had the opportunity to enjoy 72 young, studly men.

Except with all that taking our heavenly reward here on earth, there would barely be enough time left over to blow anything up. I mean, how long would it take you to make your way through 72 virgins? And forget our conservative women terrorists. They’d want to be wined and dined, insist on foreplay, want to cuddle and have a cigarette afterwards, and maybe even go another round with their boy toys. Some of them may even want a second date! The horror.

I want to thank OFA but thinking about it, I think it best to decline the honor of being designated a right wing domestic terrorist. Fox Propaganda Network will just have to muddle through without me. I am much too old and far too large to be playing the internationally wanted, dangerous and desperate terrorist.

I suppose I could always make myself into a terrorist mouthpiece…


  1. While “The Won” has, through the overuse of “I”, made himself the leading candidate for “Narcissist of the Year”, obviously this “Organizing for America” post must have been put there by one of those “low level staffers” that so muddied the political waters during the 2008 campaign.
    Even “The Won” doesn’t have the time to be doing these postings himself .. as he is too busy leading (cough .. cough) the nation, not necessarily to a “better place” but to a “Hope & Change” place.

  2. It could be worse. As an Obamacare opponent, you could be considered a racist. After all, America’s normal terrorists, the eco kind who commit about 90 percent of all such acts each year, are good people and you could luck up and be confused with them.

  3. I’ve gotten a very clear picture of what it really means to be a modern republican/conservative by listening to them at the angry town halls.

    These people are you. Listen to them. Listen to what they’re saying. It doesn’t make any sense. There is no logic. There is no research. Most of you don’t even understand what you’re so worked up about.

    I’m just baffled at why you guys waited out the entire Bush presidency to show outrage… at anything.

    Comment by Chuck Tucson — 9/2/2009 @ 10:58 am

  4. Fair question, Chuck, so let us flip it.

    Why did you left-wingers bitch and moan not only at Bush’s actual outrages but at those you imagined and dredged from fever swamps, yet you not only support the most economically illiterate president in history but actively try to shut up those who point out that unpleasant little fact?
    Political pathologies abound.

    Comment by jackson1234 — 9/2/2009 @ 1:22 pm

  5. I’m not a left winger. Plus you’re right.

    Comment by Chuck Tucson — 9/2/2009 @ 1:25 pm

  6. They fear us because they know for a fact that we can read and we have jobs and thus gas for a trip to the library for further instructions!

    As to the Left’s pathetic whining about that fine man, George W. Bush, they imputed to him all manner of sins (sins which they committed and which they then posited ALL politicians did as well). There was always a bit of the “you guys do it better than we do” sniffling behind any of their nastiness. Pathetic little cretins with little to no manhood!

    And I will repeat - I do not dislike Herr Obama because he is a semi-black man. I dislike Herr Obama because he is a lying sack of excrement who is destroying the American constitution at an unholy clip.

  7. Sorry for the assumption, Chuck.

  8. You sir are a true American! God bless terrorism! God bless fascism! Seig Heil!

    Comment by Tim — 9/2/2009 @ 3:21 pm

  9. Just so ya know…the Weather Underground were domestic terrorists, but they never killed anyone.

    Since the topic is domestic terrorism, we can’t forget to mention the bombing of the L.A. Times building (21 dead, 100 injured) or the Wall Street bombing (38 dead, 400 injured) or the Bath School bombings (45 dead, 58 injured)…

    That last one should be of special interest to tea party fans, since it was the deadliest mass murder in a school in American history…and it was all about taxes..

  10. Anyone interested in learning more about our current health care sytem, and who doesn’t have an undeserved hatred for one of the most experienced journalists of our time, should check out this movie..


    Bill Moyers is not in the movie, and only speaks for a few minutes beforehand…Give it a chance, maybe you’ll learn something you didn’t already know…There are people interviewed in this film that both liberals and conservatives can respect and believe..

    I think this should be required viewing for all Americans..

    Rick…If I’m spamming your blog, please delete this post and accept my apology..

  11. “But because I haven’t been whipped into a frenzy yet by that famous television network Fox Propaganda Network. ”

    I really need to upgrade my cable. I only get the regular Fox News and Fox Business, but not that special super-duper Fox Propaganda Network.

    That surely is way way cooler than Shep Smith, Greta, and the rest.

  12. “Anyone interested in learning more about our current health care sytem, and who doesn’t have an undeserved hatred for one of the most experienced journalists of our time”

    And the punchline is … Bill Moyers.

    What?!? LBJ’s bootlicking smear-merchant? The guy with more conflicts of interest than Chris Dodd?

    Not John Stossel or some other truly independent and honest journalist? …

    That’s not spam, that’s …. COMEDY!

  13. “Just so ya know…the Weather Underground were domestic terrorists, but they never killed anyone.”

    Dumb luck (for the NCOs that they intended to murder, but whom they never successfully executed). They commited arson and terrorism and killed 3 of themselves in a ‘work accident’.


    “On March 6, 1970, during preparations for the bombing of a Non-Commissioned Officers’ (NCO) dance at the Fort Dix U.S. Army base and for Butler Library at Columbia University,[2] there was an explosion in a Greenwich Village safe house when the nail bomb being constructed prematurely detonated for unknown reasons. WUO members Diana Oughton, Ted Gold, and Terry Robbins died in the explosion. Cathy Wilkerson and Kathy Boudin escaped unharmed. … The bomb preparations have been pointed out by critics of the claim that the Weatherman group did not try to take lives with its bombings. Harvey Klehr, the Andrew W. Mellon professor of politics and history at Emory University in Atlanta, said in 2003, “The only reason they were not guilty of mass murder is mere incompetence. I don’t know what sort of defense that is.”[2]”


    On February 21, 1970, gasoline-filled molotov cocktails were thrown at the home of New York State Supreme Court Justice Murtagh, who was presiding over the trial of the so-called “Panther 21,” members of the Black Panther Party over a plot to bomb New York landmarks and department stores. One bottle full of gasoline had broken against the front steps, and flames scorched the overhanging wooden frame until its contents burnt out. In addition windows were broken, and another molotov cocktail caused paint charring on a car. Painted in red on the sidewalk in front of his house was “FREE THE PANTHER 21″, “THE VIET CONG HAVE WON”, and “KILL THE PIGS”.[42] The same night, molotov cocktails were thrown at a police car in Manhattan and two military recruiting stations in Brooklyn”

    I would just calmly point out that we have a President who’s followers fear a 70-year-old grandma yelling at a Congressman about an issue of LIFE AND DEATH to that grandma, while supporting a friend of the man - Bill Ayers - who led those domestic terrorists and is still today a radical extremist.

  14. Travis is right. If an opinion, idea, or explanation comes from somebody I dislike I should automatically ignore it. It can’t have any potential merit . . . they wear the wrong lapel pin.

    Whew! I almost was faced with alternate views. Thanks Travis. You saved me from having to think.

  15. Travis Moniter says:

    “And the punchline is … Bill Moyers.”

    “What?!? LBJ’s bootlicking smear-merchant? The guy with more conflicts of interest than Chris Dodd?”

    Bill Moyers is a private citizen and a journalist…Chris Dodd is a senator and a definite player in healthcare legislation..

    Chris Dodd has conflicts of interest regarding health care…But can you enlighten me as to the conflicts of interest that Moyers has in relation to the health care debate??

    Lets see…

    He’s a democrat…that conflicts with your interests, but that doesn’t count.

    President of the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy? Not much there…if anything..

    Tell us Travis…what does Moyers have to gain from lying to us about the health care system and how it operates??

    In the end, even if he did have a conflict of interest, he had nothing to do with writing or producing the film I was linking to..

    So, what you’re trying to do is to discount the entire film because you personally do not agree with Bill Moyers politics…or you think he has some conflict of interest that you wont tell us about…correct?

    John Stossel:

    19 Emmy Awards…5 National Press Club awards…one George Polk Award for Outstanding Local Reporting, and one Peabody Award..

    Bill Moyers:

    Recipient of the 2006 Lifetime Emmy Award. Moyers has been awarded well over thirty Emmys and virtually every other major television-journalism prize, including a gold baton from the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, a lifetime Peabody Award, and a George Polk Career Award (his third George Polk Award) for contributions to journalistic integrity and investigative reporting. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and has been the recipient of numerous honorary degrees, including a doctorate from the American Film Institute.

    Stossel is good, but he has a ways to go before he catches up with Moyers..

    You know what’s really funny?…Really “comedy”?

    I had already seen that Stossel piece you linked to, and you still haven’t watched the link that I provided. This means that I actually consider more opinions than you do, which means that I’m generally better informed than you are.

    Har de har har!

  16. Hey Travis..

    Try this link on for size, it’s from The Wall Street Journal, so you don’t have to be embarrassed reading it..


    It covers a lot of the same ground that the film does…but it doesn’t have that liberal aftertaste..

    Comment by Moltenorb — 9/2/2009 @ 9:31 pm

  17. “Moyers has been awarded well over thirty Emmys”
    Him and some daytime soap actors. Worthless.

    Just the tip of the iceberg of Bill Moyers hypocrisy:
    “Yet the historical record suggests that when Mr. Moyers was in a position of actual power, he was complicit in FBI dirt-digging against U.S. citizens solely for political purposes.”

    Bill Moyers failed to admit to his own conflicts of interest on matters of public policy - in short a paid pimp for leftist claptrap:

    There’s more … lax journalistic standards, failed even the PBS left-biased objectivity test …

    Touting him as some great journalist is a pure joke.

  18. @Moltenorb:

    “*lists of accolades for Stosel and Moyers*”

    Yeah . . . but all those awards are liberal awards. They must be, since they were given to liberals, and as Travis pointed out they must, by definition, possess no skill, intelligence, or merit. Therefore, the awards are inherently worthless as well. Even better, the collection of worthless liberal awards (which are worthless because they were given to liberals) just prove how worthless and liberal Stossel and Moyers are. It’s like a perpetual motion engine!!

    Once you start with the assumption that anybody who doesn’t agree with Travis is false and worthless, you’ll recognize how flawed your evidence of respectability really is.

    Comment by busboy33 — 9/2/2009 @ 10:57 pm

  19. Travis,

    There are no “daytime soap actors” who have won anywhere near to 30+ emmys..

    Lying outright doesn’t help your arguments or your credibility.

    Nice try though.

    Comment by Moltenorb — 9/3/2009 @ 4:25 am

  20. This morning I heard President Osama called me a domestic terrorist for oposing his socialist health care plan. Maybe you want to spank me too Pres Osama. I proudly join the ranks of George Washington, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry and all those who oppose government tyranny. It’s so nice not to be linked to the “insergency contingent” that blew up WTC. I can’t express my happiness enough to his organization for calling me a different name than those lovely and peaceful Muslims. Thank you for letting me speak my mind as the President thinks a citizens duty is to just shut up and blindly follow him to economic hell.

    Comment by Ellie — 9/3/2009 @ 3:07 pm

  21. Ellie:

    The President said “all who oppose my socialist healthcare plan are domestic terrorists”?


    Are you SURE you’re not being just a little bit hysterical? And by “a little bit hysterical”, I mean “out of your damned mind”?

    Now prove how deeply you follow in the footsteps of those great people . . . make sure to slink away and refuse to defend your nonsense. It’s what Washington would do.

    Comment by busboy33 — 9/4/2009 @ 12:03 am

  22. [...] If you oppose Obama, his people are planning on calling you a “Right-Wing Domestic Terrorist“. “…On Monday, Jonah Goldberg at The Corner forwarded a shocking page from the Organizing for America website (mybarackobama.com) that promoted setting aside 9/11 as a day to call Senators to pass a Public Option as they “fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists.” They also suggest conservatives are “the heirs of yes, bin Laden.”…” [...]

  23. I wonder what kind of pick up line that would be. Also I wonder what it would be to say to people your daughter is pornstar. Well I would say she’s a nude model just like that, because there’s almost a dignity in it.

  24. Is it 70 or 72 Virgins? I get confused sometimes.

  25. Of course, a bastion of fairness in reporting such as Rick never bothers to update the status of such accusatory slant provided by the Heritage Foundation who has accused the entire administration of such allegedly orchestrated effort to label the opposition as “domestic terrorists.” It just so happened that HF was dead wrong. Apparently, that page was a creation of one person in the sea of my.barackobama.com blog rolls (e.g. like Townhall.com) who was brought to the site’s admin and upon realization of violation of terms, it was subsequently removed. But no, no, don’t get up, let’s keep the pieces of doo-doo of journalism float around in the toilet. I mean, after all, who needs flushing when the pungent aroma of dishonestly is so palatable.


    You have the sense of humor of a marmoset.
