Now Phil Robertson on Japanese people: ‘they rob and kidnap and rape and pillage’

The more we find out about Phil Robertson the more familiar he becomes. As more of his pulpit videos are being dug up he’s becoming practically indistinguishable from much of America, sadly. The Duck dynast and reality television star appears to be less a paragon of wholesome Americanism than your typical xenophobic Freeper:

The controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has now taken a step beyond his comments about homosexuality and bestiality, along with his assertion that black people in the Jim Crow South were happier and equating Muslims with Nazis.

Now with yet another video that’s surfaced, we’re once again reminded that this is nothing new for Robertson, who explained to an Arkansas congregation in 2008 what would “do in the Muslims,” as well as “the Chinese,” and that Muslims are “famous for murder.”

Over 3 billion people are evil and should be done-in. You haven’t even cracked the halfway point for Earth, pal.

“That’s why they run jet aircraft into buildings, because they’re under control of the evil one, that’s why they rob and kidnap and rape and pillage, because they’re under control of the evil one. That’s why they murder, from the Nazis, to the Shintoists, to the communists to this latest crop!”

Oh good the entire country of Japan, there’s another 130 million or so satanic characters. Why do we have military bases up and down the Land of the Rising Mephistos again? Why are we over there amongst the thieves, who worship trees? The rapists bowing at the foot of Mount Fuji? The psychos who bathe in sacred mountain streams? Or does the question answer itself?

“Because all of them, those four groups, 80 years of history, they all want to conquer the world, they all rejected Jesus, and they’re all famous for murder. Nazis, Shintoists, communists, and the Muhammadists.”

They’re famous for worshipping sticks and rocks. And then throwing them at Phil’s God.

Please, Sally Kern, don’t throw your anti-Evolution poo at us

Oklahoma Lawmaker Sally Kern Proposes Bill That Forces Teachers To Question Evolution
Think Progress | Jan 28 2011

State Rep. Sally Kern (R) has proposed the second anti-evolution bill this year in Oklahoma. Entitled the “Scientific Education and Academic Freedom Act,” the bill, which will be first considered next month, would require the state and local authorities to “assist teachers to find more effective ways to present the science curriculum where it addresses scientific controversies” and permit teachers to “help students understand, analyze, critique, and review” the scientific strengths and weaknesses of “existing theories . .”

Wait — haven’t I seen her somewhere before?

But the only topics mentioned in the bill as contestable are “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning.”

I have seen her before. Hang on . .

Kern also proclaimed that homosexuality is comparable to “toe-cancer” and that “it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam. Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell of this country.”

I bumped into her at a spa . .

. . in Nagano.


Widdle Meg McAwdle wuz wong about Waw in Iwaq

Feew bad fowe Meg:

I Wuz Wrong

Tyler Cowen and Brad DeLong are fessing up. It’s a Friday in August, with nothing to report but the dismal GDP figures we were all expecting. So I’ll start with the Iraq War:

Meg is bowed. I hate being bowed.

1) I erroneously believed that I could interpret the actions of Saddam Hussein. He seemed to be acting like I’d act if I had WMD. Whoops!

No! Whoops!

. . I wasn’t an Iraqi dictator, which left huge gaps in my mental model of Hussein.

None of us wuz bad owe’ Saddam. Yet a howe bunch of us said “No! Don’t go! Peopowe wiw die.”

2) I erroneously extrapolated the experience of World War II to Iraq. This took several forms:

Dat wuz a wong, wong time ago. And wuzn’t it mostowy Sawdi Awabians dat sneak attacked us at Peaw Hawbow? Whoops!

a) I overlooked the fact that Japan and Germany were both stable bourgeois nations with solid industrial bases long before we got into the act.

Wuzn’t Veewetnam in duwh Sixties? And Seventies?

b) I overlooked the fact that we completely destroyed this nations before occupying and reconstructing them.

‘. . this nations’? Whoops! And isn’t dat onwy two? Not ‘several’?
Wet’s see: a) . . and . . b). Whoops!

3) I was insufficiently empathetic in imagining how Iraqis would feel about our invasion.

You should hab twied to get fuwthew inside Iwaqis’ heads. Like Saddam Hussein — what wuz HE dinking? Oh — whoops! Whoops!

We liked the French for giving us military help during the Revolution. Now imagine that France had invaded in order to liberate us from the British. Even if they really did eventually leave, this would have had much worse results. Looking back, my confi-dence in our liberatory powers seems terribly callous, and it doesn’t really do the dead Iraqis much good that I’m sorry for it.

Meg’s owdew now, smawtew now. Vewy matchew.
