This Week In Crazy: The Wrath Of Trump

Share

Every time we think Trump has hit rock bottom, the tycoon breaks out the jackhammer and keeps going. The only thing more alarming than The Donald? His supporters.

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 five:

5. Ann Coulter

People on all sides of the aisle — including other GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz; Dick Cheney (!); House Speaker Paul Ryan; a cornucopia of pundits, celebrities, business moguls, heads of state, disillusioned erst-Trump fans; and even the White House — have announced how appalled they are at Trump’s remarks that he would ban all Muslims from entering the United States.

Of course, consummate troll Ann Coulter has The Donald’s back. Calling his inflammatory remarks her “best birthday gift” in her syndicated column Wednesday, Coulter affirmed that Trump’s proposal was neither racist nor unconstitutional, and that Republicans condemning Trump were merely “eunuchs.”

In the blog post, she shows off her typical flair for sensible, tempered responses to current events:

Given the devastation caused by only two Muslims in San Bernardino, eight Muslims in Paris, two at the Boston Marathon, one at a Chattanooga military recruitment center, one at Fort Hood, 19 on 9/11, etc. etc. — it’s really irrelevant whether “most” Muslim immigrants are peaceful little lambs. It doesn’t take a lot of them to create havoc.

How else have the 1.5 million Muslims admitted since 9/11 made our country better? Their massive welfare use? Overburdening our schools and hospitals? The machete attacks? The clitorectomies? The honor killings? The occasional terrorist attack?

Of course, American Muslims don’t exactly have a monopoly on terrorist attacks or even machete attacks. But Coulter’s implacable hatred of all immigrants knows neither bounds nor logic. Anyway, happy birthday to her.

    Given the havoc created by McVeigh, Dravidians, Roof, , Lanza, , Holmes, Harris and Kliebold, and Dear, maybe we should not allow any more white men to be born here. After all, sure there are millions walking around not doing anything, but look what damage and danger a few managed to create. As of Dec. 1, we have had 355 mass shootings in this year. Obviously we never hear of most of them. How many were done by Muslims (remember only this year) and how many by white men. See, the danger is obvious and we must stop white men from being born! ;^(

      glad there is nothing racist about your post. What would happen if I asked how many shootings were by black men and we must stop black men from being born? Better yet to make you happy, maybe we should stop all men from being born.

        Funboy, you need to recall Jean-Paul Sartre, the source and originator of satire.

        I know this is “sum fuhriner” to you, but try to withhold the allergic shock until you grasp the concept of Satire. Then, if you still remember how to read, read Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”.

        Quite so. Tomtype apparently believes that non-Muslim gun crimes are only committed by white men. Another example of black racism which is unchallenged by shameless white politicians and black respectable leaders. Do black lives matter? Of course they do. So do white lives. So do all lives.

    I wonder if Fox News ever questioned why more people in the U.S. don’t die from grenade attacks? Do you suppose it might be because grenades are so difficult to legally buy? Yes, Fox News condemns these school shootings in the strongest terms possible but, never fear, they will forever defend your right to buy the assault weapon needed to carry it out.

    Maybe there should be background checks done on the NRA every time they buy a Senator or Congressman.

      Guns nuts say they need guns for self defense. Okay, let them own a revolver. They say they need guns to hunt. Okay, let them own a hunting rifle. Ban semi-automatic pistols and rifles. Banning things like grenade launchers already sets the precedent that certain types of arms can be banned. There is also nothing in the 2A that says we have to allow people unlimited amounts of guns. There is no acceptable reason to allow civilians to stockpile arsenals. Cap it at 2 revolvers and 2 hunting rifles; all registered. Will it stop all mass shootings? No. But you will not be able to kill as many people stopping to reload a revolver every 6 shots than you would with a semi-auto pistol with a clip that holds 15 and has easily re-loadable clips. If your only goal is self-defense, then a 6 shot revolver is all you need. We can absolutely control what kind of guns are on the market without overturning the 2A.

      But what about the criminals? Won’t they have assault weapons? While it may be true that they won’t willingly hand over their illegal weapons, if we control the manufacturers, then they won’t be able to buy new ones. It’s going to take time and it’s going to take gun laws on a national level but eventually, we can severely cut down on the gun death rates in the USA. If we want to, that is. A majority has to want it before it can happen.

        You’re making far too much sense. The political right feels that you may need an AK47 or an AR15 for any number of reasons: Ex — i) you’re part of a well regulated militia ii) a zombie apocalypse is coming iii) you wish your dinkie-winkie were bigger, etc, etc…

        They say that criminals won’t obey gun laws, but if that’s the reason to have none, then I suppose all laws on everything will have to be thrown out because they all get broken.

          Speaking of the zombie apocalypse… it always makes me laugh to see all these stupid people on the shows and movies running around using knives to stab zombies in the skull. C’mon, seriously? These people are idiots. A knife should be your LAST line of defense. If you let the zombie get close enough to bite you in the first place, you have already screwed up. Guns might be a good option at first but a lack of bullets make them not viable in the long term. Swords? Puh-leaze. Lame and cliche. They are more for looks than practicality.

          What I want is what they don’t show in the zombie movies and on the zombie TV shows, probably because it would make too much sense and be too badass for people to handle. The weapon of the GODS. I WANT ME A MF’ing HALBERD. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8a06b44360d712fd2697bc9571bdf380f9f00e8c4a536a615a3b71a7db53a1df.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/786e9e3e7d9ea5a0f5502fb9f6643dd905098a8591e7a18a24d0fb3824cc4385.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3d52c9f0bb1e8d00fa695610cca69638c725f95b0e8fd297a05ee9616836a418.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/10e074edc4326b9eaa6752c15333c92f81b296a6bb59194fc5f09449ea2e00b0.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1fc1d76fe5c89342a9f0653f9e6ad9c00b4dd05c1abced67ef75b5667445e9f3.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a3f4ff0f8607b72d346e3eb8987d19e98f8d41d0baf21aad9eacb8d9c9d706fc.jpg

            That Halberd looks impressive all right but I believe that old saying has now been updated. I think now it’s, ‘those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.’

            Halberd or not, lets hope the zombie apocalypse doesn’t start in Kenya or Ethiopia because we’re not outrunning those zombies.

            Yeah… and when the bullets run out, your sword will not get near to me and my halberd. It’s got a reach advantage plus it both spears and slices. It’s the ultimate in melee weapons.

            Being in Hawai’i, my ZA plan is to steal a boat and head to one of the small uninhabited islands NW of here. Plenty of water and food with the added bonus of not having to clear out any zombies already there. I’ll be sipping coconut water and dining on fresh fish and watching the sunset over the ocean while the rest of the world burns. Aloha!

It is an invitation to terrorists, a confirmation that their radicalized view of America is legitimate, that we are the evil Satan. It is amazing to me that any American thinks this dukes up posture is the way a strong and resilient people behave. Instead of looking like a formidable world power with the greatest military the world has ever experienced, we look like cowards and weaklings.

    Pamela Geller: “First Amendment jurisprudence has never provided absolute protection to all forms of speech. There are several unprotected categories of expression, including but not limited to fighting words, obscenity, extortion, perjury and false advertising. Another unprotected category is the true threat. The First Amendment does not give a person the right to walk up to someone else and say “I am going to kill you” or to announce in an airport, “I am going to bomb this plane.”

    “Justice Sandra Day O’Connor (Appointed by Ronald Reagan) in her plurality opinion offered a definition of true threats:
    “‘True threats’ encompass those statements where the speaker means to communicate a serious expression of an intent to commit an act of unlawful violence to a particular individual or group of individuals. The speaker need not actually
    intend to carry out the threat. Rather, a prohibition on true threats protect[s] individuals from the fear of violence and from the disruption that fear engenders, in addition to protecting people from the possibility that the threatened violence will occur.”
    She added, “intimidation in the constitutionally proscribable sense of the word is a type of true threat, where a speaker directs a threat to a person or group of persons with the intent of placing the victim in fear of bodily harm or death.”http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org/true-threats

    Ann Coulter and The Donald were made for each other. The nether-worldly bond they have for each other is touching, and would make for an excellent Comedy/Musical with a heavy dose of Greek Tragedy added to the mix.

    The word “Revulsion” and similar types of words come readily to mind when the two of them are mentioned or shown.

    Oh, what a vile brew the GOP has concocted for itself. And now, one of the many penalties to be imposed on it is to drink the brew, dregs and all.

    Thank you, Sam, for redeeming yourself with 5 (yes, 5) A-List Beauzeaux (fancy term for Bozos, in case Otto is scratching his head).

    Haven’t seen Ann Coulter’s name here in months. Not that I missed her vacuous inanities, but every now and then it’s fun to hear about her foaming at the mouth over something or other. If there was anyone in the US who needed to be on mood-control medication, it is definitely this brazen admiter of illegal voting.

    Pamela Geller has been doing everything in her power to become a bullet and machete magnet. It’s like she is courting her own death or downfall. Here’s hoping the FBI gets to her before the terrorists do. Hey, as someone who foments insurrection, shouldn’t she be on a “no-fly” or “terrorist watch” list?

    The Great Bloviator once again proves he is so far out there. Doesn’t it tell the rest of the world something when THE DONALD goes so far overboard that everyone who isn’t a member of a White Supremacist Support Group is opposed to what he says? And what does this drug-fueled idjit do? He claims the Republican and Democratic parties are siding with Hamas. Sounds like someone needs a time-out.

    F&F shows that in their attempts to pander to the lowest common denominator, they have once again proven their idiocy. Sure. Let’s get a couple of kids to try to disarm someone who is more likely to shoot them if they take a step towards him.

    Finally, we have “THE DONALD”. Personally, I agree with the Eagle’s (Uncle Sam) opinion of him. Nuff said.

    After reading this stuff I don’t know how to respond. I feel like I need to invent a new language that can condemn these people because all of the words I have in my vocabulary are not adequate.

    Is there anything Trump can say that will cause the republicans to kick him out of their party? Just the fact that they haven’t done so shows how badly they want the Presidency, so much so that they are willing to give up all of the principals of their party, the constitution of The United State, and 240 years of our unique and exceptional experiment in freedom and democracy. If we change out ideals because of a terrorists action then we automatically lose because the terrorists have caused us to abandon the principals this country was founded on. Eventually, we will be a different country and the terrorists will have won.

They are everywhere. In theaters, schools, malls and every other public place. As Jeb bush says about the gun deaths – “Stuff happens.” You are definitely part of the proud to be stupid crowd. Pamela Geller, you would never make an ambassador to promote democracy. You can’t set a good example. You, too, are part of the proud to be stupid crowd. Rush limpdck, aka butt cheeks. You must be burned out on Oxycontin. Fox and company, picture 20 six-year-olds struggling with AK-47s. Picture a school. full of 12 to 14 year old children with AK-47s.
