Terry “Burnin’ Qur’ans for Jesus” Jones Hangs Obama in Effigy

Published

on

It has been one of those weeks, people. One of those weeks. You ever had one of those?

Of course you have.

After having had one of those weeks, I find it hard to get outraged by the stupid shenanigans of a pastor who swiped his mustache from Yosemite Sam. Nonetheless, if Pastor Terry Jones is going to keep doing dumb shit, then I’m going to blog about it because it is my sworn duty, and if I didn’t, I just wouldn’t be able to live with myself — or something.

::clears throat::

Pastor Terry Jones, the whackadoodle who brought the country to the brink of disaster with his “I’m totally gonna burn this here Qur’an, you guys!” debacle of 2010 (which I wrote about here), and the subsequent “LMAO! J/K! No, I’m not!” cop-out (which I wrote about here), dialed up the crazy today and decided to hang Obama in effigy outside his church in Florida. Yup!

Because if there’s one thing that goes together like Twinkies and cream, it’s a black man with a noose around his neck:

The effigy is suspended from a makeshift gallows with a noose of yellow rope, has a doll in its right hand and a rainbow-colored gay pride flag in its left.

In a telephone interview with The Huffington Post, Jones said the flag was meant to call attention to Obama’s stance on same-sex marriage and that the baby doll is there because the president is “favorable toward abortion.”

Jones also said that radical Islam is “the most dangerous threat to life and national security in America.”

There is also an Uncle Sam dummy standing at the base of the gallows outside the DWOC. Jones told HuffPost that the Obama effigy had originally been positioned to be hanging Uncle Sam when the display went up two weeks ago, but that the church changed the display on Wednesday.

The words “Obama is Killing America” are printed on a trailer nearby.

Ridiculous.

I love that Obama is clutching a doll, as if to say “where the tiny white women at?!”

In your hand, Mr. President. In your scary black hand.

‘The Senate’s in play’: Reeling GOP faces collapse into minority status as Trump drags party down

Published

on

According to a report in Rolling Stone, there is a very good chance that the Democrats could take control of the Senate after the 2020 election as the impeachment of Donald Trump casts a cloud over the Republican Party.

The report -- by longtime political observer Tim Dickinson -- states, "the fight to wrest the Senate from Republican control — and oust Mitch McConnell as majority leader — is arguably just as important" as the battle to force Trump from office.

Mar-a-Lago to host event for conspiracy nuts who believed Obama was a secret Muslim

Published

on

President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club is hosting an event for a far-right organization that once spread bogus conspiracy theories about former President Barack Obama being a secret Muslim.

The Washington Post reports that Trump's prized Florida resort on Saturday night will play host to the Center for Security Policy, a group that believes "mainstream Muslim organizations in the United States are secretly agents of anti-American jihad."

Lev Parnas wants to testify — and attorney says ‘he has hard—HARD—first-hand evidence’

Published

on

One of Rudy Giuliani's indicted henchman wants to testify -- and his attorney says he's got "first-hand evidence."

Federal prosecutors have issued subpoenas to Parnas and his associate Igor Fruman, and the Parnas has indicated that he wants to speak to congressional investigators.

"Lev grew up in Brooklyn, has no criminal record or Russian Mob ties, and is a proud American citizen," said his attorney Joseph Bondy. "He’s not afraid of #POTUS or polonium, hopes to testify under oath — unlike #RudyGiuliani — and to be subjected to cross-examination under penalties of perjury. #LetLevSpeak"
