The percentage of Americans who think Thoughbama is a moozlim is approximately equal to the percentage of Americans who believe that the shadow government was behind nineleven.
Quite like to see that Venn diagram.Of course the actual, real government was behind 9/11 in that it established Al Queda and then gave Saudi Arabia garrisons and a hefty bill for the 'first' Gulf War.
Gee, what does it all mean?
And one-fifth of British teens think Winston Churchill was a fictional character, while 58% think Sherlock Holmes was real, etc.This does not signify anything more than that a large percentage of human beings are idiots.
Thank you, anonymous, for explaining the punchline. Have you ever considered stand-up?
Well, in an effort to perhaps extend the punchline, rather than merely explain it, I'll point to the perhaps most significant information from this poll: that some 54% of Democrats, those rascally voters most enthusiastic about putting the Obama into office two years ago, aren't even aware of his predilection for the Prince of Peace.
"that some 54% of Democrats, those rascally voters most enthusiastic about putting the Obama into office two years ago, aren't even aware of his predilection for the Prince of Peace."Well, but so what? A substantial number of the respondents thinking he's Muslim, but not caring, is not necessarily a bad thing. (Other than for the general ignoramusity it represents.) Because that's the only reason this poll would be relevant: e.g., if he's Muslim, his house in Kenwood should be seized and converted into an Assembly of God. Or that he is therefore Constitutionally(TM) unqualified to be president, under the Religious Test clause in Article Fifty-one.
When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movement becomes headlong – faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget that a precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it's, literally, Joe Biden, too late.
What percentage believe he's an atheist?
Janie: "Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?"Winston: "If there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say."
Who said anything about shadows?
Standard media ad absurdum bait 'n switch. As I see it, and I'm far from alone, Obama is not a Muslim but a Muslim sympathizer. By emphasizing the first proposition and offering it up with great fanfare to the sorts of bowdlerizing we see on this thread, Obama's media acolytes hope thereby to discredit and dilute the second proposition, which is far more potentially damaging. This sympathy inheres with Muslims as with any "victim" group of Western Judeo-Christian capitalism and its corresponding military, economic, and cultural hegemony. Likewise, Obama certainly does not Hate America--- just most of what America has done and is. He is neither a Card Carrying Socialist or Marxist, nor a Black Liberationist, but holds with most of the major premises nevertheless.
Likewise, Inky certainly does not Hate America--- just most of what America has done and is (and most of his fellow Americans).Fixed.
LOL, Inky. You know, for a Black Liberationist and Muslim sympathizer, this Obama guy sure likes throwing black people in jail and killing Muslims.
Inkstain, obama "sympathizes w/muslims" the same way Ash sympathized w/the crew of the Nostromo in "Alien.""inky is a goddam robot!"
Well, Obama*** does sympathize with Muslims insofar as he honestly thinks they deserve the "freedom", economic prosperity, cultural trappings, etc. that American war efforts supposedly bring. You have to remember that these people are not actually evil. They are just deluded beyond all measure and have no grasp of cause and effect.*** Or more specifically, the people who control Obama's foreign policy, like this guy. He is the true boss of the State Department, was appointed by W, and remains in his post today.
Why on earth do I have to remember that?
It's funny how one of those beliefs is aired almost constantly, by mainstream media and sitting politicians, and the other is barely heard at all.
And one-fifth of British teens think Winston Churchill was a fictional character,Well, to be fair, the Churchill who gets talked about all the time is a fictional character.
Oh jeez and this morning I was just looking for my copy of Crystallizing Public Opinion but sadly, someone else seems to have borrowed it :(
If ya'll think muzzlim-lovers are bad, wait until joo-lovers in our midst us are exposed for the perfidious traitors they are!Right after the next glorious fail of the forever-victorious USA empire (some will haf ta take da fall, ain't it?)Capt'n Obvious
Uh-oh, l'Yglesias is stepping on your turf, kinda.
Speaking of things Yggie believes ...
What percentage believe both?
You have to remember that these people are not actually evil.Thanks, Michael. For some reason, I always forget that.
Anon @ 5:15---I think it's closer to the sympathy Ripley feels in a later chapter, after she realizes she's carrying one.
I can't wait until a Muslim bursts out of Obama's stomach as he throws himself into an industrial incinerator.
Lucid @ 2:18 beat me to the punch. I was gonna request a definition, a working definition, of "shadow." But I was busy riding my bike in high alpine terrain. Mea culpa, I put recreation and health before political barb-tossing!So what's all this about "shadows"? Is this a nascently politically correct TV show from the 70s starring Ken Howard as a white basketball coach in an all-black high school?
Prof Cold-coeur, Yggie's revisiting 2003 is something Glenn Greenwald should try one of these days. Alas, it's probably long gone history to his fans that he was a big cheerleader for the "keeeeeel them Mooozlem raddy-culls" motive in American foreign policy during that same 2003 era.
