This Week In Crazy: Second Amendment Remedies To Scott Brown, And The Rest Of The Worst Of The Right

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Rush Limbaugh

Last week, Megyn Kelly “won” first place on the list for her odd insistence that Santa Claus — who, just to reiterate, is not a real person — is white.

This week, Rush Limbaugh takes the number five spot for sharing his own opinion on the subject. As you may have imagined, it’s basically just a less informed version of Kelly’s point.

“In every portrayal since the beginning of Santa Claus, Santa Claus is white,” Limbaugh — who apparently doesn’t know how to do a Google image search — insisted.

“This is worse than political correctness,” he continued. “This is Stalinism.”

Of course, Limbaugh’s warning that black Santas are actually leading us towards a communist dictatorship loses some of its shock value when one considers that Limbaugh thinks pretty much everything is Stalinist.

But if it makes Rush feel better, at least everyone seems to agree that Stalin was a white guy.

  • It gets crazier. Despite having tried to take down the government, Klayman also expects to be given security clearance.

    Great to see Iowa’s own BVP made the list this week so the rest of the world can enjoy his wisdom.

    Ah, Rush…welcome back. We missed ya. Kinda like we’d miss a toothache. As for the rest of this gaggle of nincompoops, I’ll let their deeds speak for themselves.

    Well. if anything, we are an “interesting” country. Full of wonderful people, yet also screwballs, danger, anger, laughter, joy, ideas, inventiveness, paranoia, loudmouths, bigots, open mindedness and everything in between I have forgotten. It’s exhausting. Can we all take a break, have a Merry Christmas, and ponder on the ideas of the “Prince of Peace”?

    These people will say whatever it takes to keep those Koch Brothers welfare checks coming.

    Bob Vander Plaats accomplished two things. 1. He demonstrated that he is a non-lingual, I had to read the quote of him three times to figure out what the hell he was getting at. 2. He made the best argument yet for rescinding all the political perks that accompany marriage. Let’s just have one tax system, one personal property system, and then anyone, (adult), can associate with any other adult(s) on their own terms.

    I was amused by his claim that “without God’s design and parameters”, (who is going to define that one), “there is no limit to what we will invent to be our freedoms”. I hate to break the news to him but it took a break from the Bible’s “design and parameters” in order to outlaw slavery, something he clearly would have resisted.

      I taught writing to junior high kids whose first language was not English. Their writing was much easier to understand than the gibberish Bob Vander Plaats spews. I wonder if he is as confused as his statements, or is he just completely inept at expressing ideas?

    Isn’t it San Jose State University that holds (or used to hold) a horrible-writing contest each year asking contestants to come up with a beginning worse than Edward Bulwar-Lytton’s famous words “It was a dark and stormy night…”?

    Way to cite quality experts, Bobby boy.

    Once again the crazies have entertained us with their fantasies. I do so look forward to “The Week In Crazy”.

    Not only was Stalin white, he was from Georgia (look it up) and he had a mustache that

    Jeff Foxworthy could never hope to grow. ;~)

    In this related video we find yet another example of the importance of active, armed, self-defense:
