Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Hello, fellow warriors against Christmas. Please take your seat under this non-denominational spruce tree, next to this avowedly un-sacred crackling December fire. Everyone have their mug of profane winter nog? Good.

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number four:

4. Sean Hannity

Hannity gets a twofer this week.

On Wednesday, performing a postmortem on Tuesday night GOP debates, the Fox News host spoke with Sen. Rand Paul, specifically about his challenge to Donald Trump regarding the tycoon’s stated intention to attack the families of terrorists.

Paul explained that deliberately targeting children, bystanders, and non-combatants was contrary to American values, not to mention the Geneva Convention.

Hannity’s response: “I’m not so sure if I agree with all the Geneva Conventions.”

Hannity’s other memorable moment for humanity this week:

There’s a refrain we’ve heard time and time again when conservative pundits want to make excuses for the senseless deaths of unarmed men of color — “He’s no angel.” That line got a revamp when Hannity said of Freddie Grey, the 25-year-old black man in Baltimore whose spine was severed at the neck as he was being bounced around a paddy wagon unrestrained. “He was clearly not a pillar of his community,” Hannity said.

Hannity cited Gray’s “past arrest record” and “maybe the likelihood that he’s up to no good” as reasons why we should, presumably, overlook the fact that he was seen in a video recording, writhing in agony as we was being arrested, and that he slipped into a coma and died days later.

(Charges were brought against the officers involved. The first trial for one of them ended in a mistrial Thursday after three days of deadlocked jury deliberation.)

Hannity clarified that, for the purposes of the officers’ trials, Gray’s arrest record “doesn’t matter legally in the court — but it matters in reality.

For Sean Hannity, human life is really only precious in a narrow set of circumstances: You must be a pillar of your community, as he defines it, and you’d better be far, far away from any place President Trump might be itching to bomb.

Next: Carly Fiorina

    Only FIVE? I would like to submit the Thirty percent of the republican voters who support any of these candidates as being the MOST CRAZY….

    • Eleanore Whitaker says:

      And while we are all busy focusing on the clown car, the GOP House yesterday passed an omnibus bill for a budget of $1.1 trillion 45% of which is spending on Big Oil and Republican special interests.

      • dpaano says:

        Yeah, what happened to lowering the deficit. President Obama has lowered it by 2/3’s from what he inherited, but the GOP is determined to run it back up again…..typical Republicans. They are the party of spend, spend, and spend some more, but it’s always on things we don’t need and not on the things we DO need!

        • Steve Batchelor says:

          There is the problem in a nutshell…They will only spend on things that fatten their bank accounts and it’s obvious with their vitriol that they give less than a shite about any of the citizens that actually make this country what it is.

    • dpaano says:

      Especially those who are rooting for Trump……but, I have a question. Why are we seeing so many TV shows about Trump lately? What happened to equal time? Why don’t we have television programs about the other candidates (ewwww). In California, we have had Trump, Trump, and more Trump on our TV stations the past few weeks. It’s ridiculous, and who wants to know that much about such an idiot….most of us already knew he was an egotistical narcissist just from his Apprentice show!

  2. charleo1 says:

    At this point my sense is, for the majority of the Wingers. and Wiggers, none of this matters. At least they say, we are not slaves to political correctness whatever that means. At least they are the moral, and Godly, against Gay marriages, and abortion. Also, Mexicans, and Muslims. At least we will call ISIS an “Islamic,” something or the other! Denoting a certain, “deep understanding,” of the situation that Obama the secret Muslims lacks. Namely that demagoguery, scapegoating, Muslim databases+carpet bombing=security.These are, after all, the priorities for which telling a few lies, or destroying the truth, is deemed well worth the subterfuge if it produces victory. You’re either all in, or all out. Black, or white. A Trumpite, or a traitor.

    • dtgraham says:

      I was thinking about your post. You noticed too that Obama has to say the magic words or he apparently doesn’t understand the situation at all. He has to say Islamic. He must say that word, regardless of what else he does on homeland security or the fight against ISIS. It’s as though he may bomb or drone Helsinki or something by mistake. “Oh, it’s the ISLAMIC guys that are doing all that stuff!” “Oh sorry.” “My bad.”

      I think he knows who the problem people are.

      • Eleanore Whitaker says:

        He says Islamic because that is what THEY call themselves..They call it the Islamic state…what the hell else would YOU call it?

        • dtgraham says:

          Idiot Shi*heads In Syria.

        • Cloudherder says:

          I think you missed the point entirely. The righties have their knickers in a bunch that Obama (how dare he!) never uses the precise word ‘Islamic’ when referring to ISIS and Friends. They really think that means he is doing nothing about it … That he is just golfing or some idiotic thing. That he doesn’t know who the problem people are.
          Pres. Obama doesn’t use the phrase ‘Islamic terrorists’ because they really aren’t representatives of Islamists. They aren’t the terrorists FOR the Islamists, like they are representing them as a whole or whatever. Regardless of what the asshats call themselves.
          You have it absolutely backwards and are being obnoxious about it.

      • charleo1 says:

        It’s curious what excites them. Trump excites them specifically because
        he doesn’t worry about what he says, or what the ultimate consequences of his rhetoric produces. Will his reckless demagoguery make him the poster boy for ISIS recruiters Worldwide? Security analysts who study such things, say it will, and already is. Should Americans expect their President to be smarter about such things? Or, is making them feel better about the whole thing by hurling insults more important? I think it has to do with how the Right has come to see terrorism. For the Right it seems to be viewed as a noun. As a trait specific to the Muslim, rather than a strategy used as a means of cowing a population into a forced acquiescence. Thus, the killings at abortion clinics, or the guy who flew his plane into an IRS building in TX. are always characterized as one offs, perpetrated by the rare mentally deranged misfit. The Terrorist? Well. they represent an entire religion that’s coming soon to a town near you!

        • dpaano says:

          I recently had a “Letter to the Editor” published in the LA Times, and I said the very same thing….Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric is nothing but a wonderful recruiting aid for ISIS. Even young sons and daughters for American Muslims must be offended…..some to the point of allowing themselves to be radicalized. For some of them, the ones who were born and raised in the U.S., they have NO idea of what is going on in their parent’s countries and view it as something wonderful and somewhat “romantic” for them to get involved in. It amazes me that they would choose to go back to the Middle East and perpetrate these tragedies in their home country after all that the U.S. has given most of them. We have to be aware (unlike our rightwing bretheran), however, that not ALL Muslims in this country feel the same and are “forced” to continually apologize for the very few who don’t seem to understand that they are lucky to be in such a great country (despite all it’s faults and problems). All Trump and his cohorts are doing is causing non-Muslim radicals to use his rantings as an excuse to cause chaos and get their names in the paper! It’s funny, we’ve had weeks of news about San Bernardino, but very little about the old white man terrorist who bombed the Planned Parenthood facility. Apparently, this type of terrorist doesn’t work in the rightwing party’s storyline!!!

          • charleo1 says:

            First, congrats on getting your piece published. No small feat in one of the largest papers in the Country! And, letters such as yours can help to offset some of the hate filled rhetoric Muslims are hearing coming out of one of the two major political parties right here in their own Country. To myself it’s embarrassing, and shameful. But imagine how frightening it must be to be a Muslim right now, or even a person who may, “look,” Middle Eastern, to some ignorant rube with a gun? As we learn, some non-Muslim shopkeepers have already fallen victim to just such an occurrence, and been murdered. Donald Trump, and the wide support he’s getting from so many of my fellow countrymen doesn’t make me especially proud to be an American right now. And, I believe we owe Muslims in this Country an apology. I keep wishing someone with the wherewithal, perhaps one of our Democrats running for President, would publish an open letter in every major paper, and every news outlet in Nation, doing just that.

    • highpckts says:

      You feelin lucky you brainless moron!!! Do you know what kind of destruction a nuclear bomb causes? You’re ok with Trumps idea of using such a weapon? Because if you are, you are committing suicide! If anyone thinks that the effects will only hurt where it is dropped, you better get your ass on the move! The consequences of that bomb will effect the world!!! Geezus I’m tired of all you chest thumping, armchair warriors that know everything!!

      • charleo1 says:

        Oh, pish-posh, you liberals are such delicate little flowers. If you’re worried about nuclear annihilation, them come to Jesus as I have!

        • highpckts says:

          Jesus won’t save your ass!! I, for one, would like to leave this planet to my grandchildren and theirs in pretty good shape! You, on the other hand, are consumed with only yourself!! So typical of you religious nuts! God gave you free will and that doesn’t mean you get to destroy everything because of one of the seven deadly sins, pride!!

          • charleo1 says:

            Okay, now you’re trying to take away MY religious freedom!
            You Un-Constitutional Godless-Liberal!

          • dtgraham says:

            That’s telling ’em.

          • highpckts says:

            Wow Seriously , you help!!

          • dtgraham says:

            Alright, maybe charleo1 was a little off when he said that Obama conducted a public bible burning to draw attention away from his Satanic gun control laws, but can you prove charleo was wrong on his claim that Obama is infecting Christians with ebola to destroy Jesus and start a new age of liberal darkness?

  3. dtgraham says:

    Whenever I see a story with tragedy dry-humping whores in the title, I always read it. Always been a point of principle with me.

    Dana Loesch hit on all the hot button sweet spots that the Republicans love: the godless left, logical fallacies, menacing young black men, grabbing your guns, false facts, senseless analogies, and bald faced lies. She hit ’em all.

    Give Dana credit though. She’s a woman of principles and she stands by them. Laughable, obtuse, soul-destroying principles based on discredited gun fantasies, primitive morality, and ignorant delusions. Principles nevertheless.

  4. ModDem67 says:

    It’s hard to pick when the craziness variance is only +/- 0.01%.

  5. Karen Bille-Golden says:

    In the true spirit of Christian love, peace and understanding, let us all wish them a Merry Christmas and a wake-up call to reality. Having to repeat the message of this holiday season where Christians celebrate the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ, over and over again becomes tiring. For some, it’s been 2000 years and it’s still not clear to them what He was trying to teach us.

  6. melpalmer says:

    boy she is out of her mind and yet true to the crazy right wingers. ignore the facts and stoke the hate.

    • Eleanore Whitaker says:

      All CEOs assume the “position” that their word is LAW. When it worked so well for Cheney with all of his lies about WMDs and refusing to be deposed on the CIA outing investigation, this further empowered the entire world of CEO Republicans.

      • Steve Batchelor says:

        That still gets under my craw Eleanor with the way Valerie Plume was treated…All of the assholes from Dubya’s reign of terror involved should have been tried for TREASON!

  7. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    Why are you all so shocked that Fiorina, a HP CEO would stick to her lies? When you are at the top of a corporate ladder, lies are a necessity. Lies to employees, lies to accountants, lies to the shareholders …truth is not an option in the corporate world. Why would you expect facts or truth or for that matter punishment for lies?

    But you know what’s so funny? This generation of bare faced liars who take such pride in their lies will get their come uppance from the next generations they taught to lose the ability to understand right and wrong, good and bad and truth and lies. Their day will come.

  8. dpaano says:

    Fiorina has absolutely NO chance of winning the nomination for the Republican party….she’s an accident waiting for a place to happen. Santorum is an embarrassment to REAL Christians! Dana is the usual uninformed, totally lacking in compassion, dirt throwing jackass! None of these individuals should be allowed to be personalized in the media for their idiotic views!!!

    • johninPCFL says:

      She’s angling for the VP nomination. After all, she crows nonsense as well as any of the other nuts, and sticks by her lies even when the truth breaks in.

      • dpaano says:

        If someone is stupid enough to consider her as their VP choice…they’ll just be a repeat of the same consequences as McCain & Palin! Her alligator mouth tends to overload her hummingbird a$$! Just my opinion. She’d just be a detriment to any of the rightwing candidate’s nominations! But, then again, none of them are particularly brilliant!

  9. drdroad says:

    Lets see, I almost put HP out of business when I was the big boss; I lost my bid for a Senate seat in California by about a million votes, I think its time to run for President!!

  10. idamag says:

    Sean hannity, you are an ignorant buffoon, I always wonder what kind of people follow the likes of you. The Geneva Convention was agreed upon by some smart, educated, and humane people. Of course the likes of you and people like hitler would not agree. It was the horrible actions of hitler that brought about the Geneva Conventions. Carly fiorina, You are a despicable liar. Rather than shut your witchy mouth when you are called out, you insist on repeating the lies again. Your ugly self shows up on your face. Santorum, Arab countries, as a rule are theocracies. There are so-called Christians, including you, who would endeavor to m ake this country a theocracy. Dana Loesch, classy lady who seems well versed in what dry humping means. You see the world from your place in the gutter. All of you are hate mongers.

  11. Insinnergy says:

    Wow, America.
    Just.
    Wow.

    The world seriously can’t afford your predilection for, and tolerance of, ignorance and idiotic political lies.
