Your Sunday Bottomless Flute of Stupid


“We’re paying them about $15,000 a year in free health care, free food, free shelter, free clothing, free transportation,” Brooks said. “That answers very quickly why so many of them want to come to the United States of America.”

“We’re paying them to come here,” the Alabama congressman concluded. “It’s a paid vacation!”

The Gospel of Brietbart

teabagging for jeebus
Hollywood cannot write dialogue like this because no one would believe it:

Brietbart News’ Stephen Bannon: “What they’re going to bring up over the holiday season is, ‘Mary and Joseph were refugees. Mary and Joseph when they went into Egypt were refugees.’”

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX): “Well, Steve, I would just say this, “Mary and Jesus didn’t have suicide bomb vests strapped on them, and these folks do. You can see it in technicolor in Paris.”

One Lump of Stupid or Two, Ben Carson

Carson said WHAT?!

Carson said WHAT?!

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) wins the morning as they breathlessly tell us that ‘Bennie the Blade’ Carson compares Syrian refugees to dogs:

Speaking to reporters following a campaign stop in Mobile, Alabama, Carson stressed that the United States wants smart leaders who care about people, but noted there should always be a balance between safety and humanitarian concerns.

“For instance, you know, if there is a rabid dog running around your neighborhood, you’re probably not going to assume something good about that dog, and you’re probably gonna put your children out of the way,” Carson said. “Doesn’t mean that you hate all dogs by any stretch of the imagination.”

Continuing his analogy, the Republican presidential candidate said that screening refugees is like questioning how you protect your children, even though you love dogs and will call the Humane Society to take the dog away to reestablish a safe environment.

“By the same token, we have to have in place screening mechanisms that allow us to determine who the mad dogs are, quite frankly,” he added. “Who are the people who wanna come in here and hurt us and wanna destroy us? Until we know how to do that, just like it would be foolish to put your child out in the neighborhood knowing that that was going on, it’s foolish for us to accept people if we cannot have the appropriate type of screening.”

So I guess those stories from earlier in the week that Carson was unable to absorb intelligence briefings has a basis in fact. This is diplomacy 101 level stuff.

From BarbWire, the blog-like thingy of Matt Barber, the man who only thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night:


But today there’s a difference. While there are still many sensible, responsible college kids, a growing percentage is tragically easy to manipulate, even to accept lunacy, and that presents huge issues.

Oh? College Republicans are a growing menace. Is that what you mean?

Today’s irresponsible social media, vile extremism and flat-out ignorance in “higher” education create a dangerous Playdoh student who can be molded by race baiters, sexual anarchists, anti-capitalists and even worse– terrorists.

“I really want to meet a sexual anarchist,” Harvey didn’t say, wistfully.

ISIS recruiters could come in behind the disturbances at the University of Missouri and other colleges and reap a great harvest, because even their student leaders think the real problem is “hate speech” which makes them feel “unsafe.” Their boiling points are low, because their own distress over imaginary “microaggressions” is high.

You mean like Xristian victimhood?

Welcome to our sorority house, local imam and your friends from Syria. Tell us what to think.

The author, Linda Harvey, tells us at the start of the article that she was at a campus protest in 1970, you know, as an onlooker, and ran when the first teargas canister was launched in her direction. Front lines, dontcha know?

She Sounds Nice

Another rational Republican considers rounding ’em up:

Rhode Island state Sen. Elaine Morgan (R) said in an email Tuesday that she opposes resettling Syrian refugees because “[t]he Muslim religion and philosophy is to murder, rape, and decapitate anyone is a non Muslim.”

If the U.S. does “take these people in,” she added, “we should set up refugee camp to keep them segregated from our populous [sic].”

I’m wondering how long before Screwie Louie Gohmert invokes the Return of the Terror Babies.

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Slaughter

So on what grounds does Y’all Qaeda want to impeach The Kenyan Usurper now?

A gun-rights advocate who was lamenting France’s restrictive gun laws earlier this week is now lamenting liberal immigration laws in the United States.

“We should not allow our politicians to import Muslim murderers,” Larry Pratt [Ed. – Pratt is the executive director of Gun Owners of America] says of the unfettered flow of Syrian refugees into the U.S….

…Pratt says the United Nations should send Syrian refugees to Saudi Arabia if they’re Sunni or to Yemen if they’re Shia.

“But for goodness sakes,” says Pratt, “to send them here ought to be an impeachable offense.”

Or is this Pratt suggesting we impeach the United Nations?

Get The Box Cars Ready!


Why is the Wingnuttian final solution always involving rounding people up? Anyway, the latest proposal to round ’em up and send them away is coming to us today from Tennessee:

A top Tennessee Republican lawmaker believes the time has come for the National Guard to round up any Syrian refugees who have recently settled in the state and to stop any additional Syrian refugees from entering Tennessee.

And exactly how will that work? The Federal Government sets immigration policy. Oh, wait, don’t tell me! States Rights! I thought we settled that about 150 years ago…

“Tennessee is a sovereign state. If the federal government is forsaking the obligation to protect our citizens, we need to act,” [Tenn. House GOP Caucus Chairman Glen Casada] said during a phone interview with The Tennessean on Tuesday.

So… how many refugees are we talkin’ about in Tennessee?

In fiscal year 2015, only 30 of the 1,601 refugees settled in Tennessee came from Syria, according to the Tennessee Office for Refugees.

So keeping an eye on 30 refugees is too much work for the great state of Tennessee and you want to shove them in a box car and send them to camps or something? Good plan, GOP. Cannot imagine how ISIS can use those images for recruiting purposes.

"If I... Were KING... of the Forrrrrrrrrrrrest!"

“If I… Were KING… of the Forrrrrrrrrrrrest!”

¡JEB! the Smartest Bush® has an airtight plan to only admit Xristian refugees into the country:

“At a minimum we ought to be bringing in people that have — orphans or people that clearly aren’t going to be terrorists. Or Christians,” Bush said during a campaign stop South Carolina. “There are no Christian terrorists in the Middle East, they’re persecuted.”

When pressed by ABC News on how he would determine who is a Christian he said, “I mean you can prove you’re a Christian.” adding, “I think you can prove it, if you can’t prove it, you are on the side of caution.”

Which led one wag on Twitter to respond:
