Hillbilly Koran-Burning Pastor Does New Insane Thing For Attention

Florida swamp monster Terry Jones needs money. Or he has run out of sedatives. Or, and we’re going to say this is the most likely one, he is feeling a little hard up these days, because he’s about to get a complimentary body cavity exam from the Secret Service: He put some kind of racist art installation piece on the front lawn of his “Dove World Outreach Center” nut factory that depicts a dummy made up to look like Barack Obama hanging from a noose alongside a sign that reads, “Obama is Killing America.” It’s not a very good caption for this sculpture since Barack Obama seems more like the object rather than the subject of the sculpture, if it were a sentence, but the nation’s illiterate racist contingent will probably get the meaning regardless.

Here is the photo, ugh:

And here is the official Terry Jones statement on this project, reflecting once more a somewhat alarming inability to construct consistent thoughts in English:

That is why we have now chosen the hanging of Hussein Obama to represent how the American people must, in a peaceful way, stand up and reject President Obama, reject his anti-American policies. It is time for us to stand up. It is time, again, for America to become America.

Enjoy your anal probe, Terry! [Addicting Info]

    For just this reason, I'm almost glad we kept Gitmo open.

  • Barb

    Take away his tax exempt status and send some Navy SEALs over. Either he's in the church business or he's in the politics business.

    • chascates

      That 'stache looks like what the Navy SEALs on those 'SEAL workout videos' have. Some I'm suspicious twice.

    • miss_grundy

      And do the same thing to the Catholic church while you're at it since it has decided to become a political animal and push the "religious freedom" argument to stop female workers from being able to get birth control through their medical insurance if they work at Catholic institutions.

      • Barb

        Agreed, Miss_g!

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        I know the area in which I grew up could really use the money from tax revenue by taxing all the fuckin' churches there. That might lead to the churches actually helpin' poor folks for a change before they die instead of making empty promises about how they'll have mansions in Heaven after they die.

        • http://www.wonkette.com BelleSC

          Same goes for here. A good bit of what passes officially for "downtown" here is church property = NO TAX REVENUE.

        • Biff

          Hah! Here, they don't even want to tax the casinos, let alone the churches.

    • bumfug

      Neither one – he's in the furniture business and uses his cult members as slave labor. Really. That's what got him thrown out of Germany.
      Edit: Sorry – I thought I'd hit reply to Barb's post above this one. *SAD TROMBONE SOUND*

        Yaknow, I understand that HE's not the type to cut and run, unlike certain other futtmuckers we must never mention by name.

      Does it involve surveying?

  • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

    It's not a noose, it's a surveyor's necktie.

  • WIDTAP

    I believe he meant to say "It's time for America to become Amercia."

  • Antispandex

    I don't know. The Nuge actually threated the President and he came out of the meeting with the Secret Service all, "Hey, what a bucnh of nice guys". Let's face it, they're pussys.

    • Guppy

      The Nuge and the Secret Service speak the same language: misogyny. He offered them his wife for the night and that was that.

      Does it mean anything if he doesn't know what the word "concept" signifies?

      • tessiee

        I'm guessing he doesn't know the meaning of most words.

        • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

          Probably even including the word "word", if you can somehow jump over that mental hurdle.

    Will Jones be giving the invocation at the republican convention in Tampa this August?

      most likely. yes.

      If Obama wins, he'll be invited to give the commencement.

      He is–love of hangings!

      • nirrti_rachelle

        Actually, God is Lowe. People misspell his name all the time.

    • Fairtackle

      He's more of an "Old Testament" Christian.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      It depends on what kinda church you attend:
      A megachurch: God is money.
      A certain "church" in Kansas that hates homos: God is a hater.
      Racist hillbilly church in Florida (or in many other states in the south): God is a hater.
      One could go on & on….

    Look at that second pic. All that's missing is the FREE sign crudely scrawled on the lid of some decrepit storage container, leaning up against the whole mess. Yard sale is over – nobody wants your weird racist shit even if it is free.

  • sbj1964

    He really needs to ask himself is this what Jesus would do?WWJD?

    • Wile E. Quixote

      Yeah, unfortunately instead of asking WWJD? he's asking WWJL? (Who Would Jesus Lynch?).

      • sbj1964

        Yeah,I think he missed the point.

    • Negropolis

      Jesus told him do this. Just like Jesus told him to troll Dearborn and burn Korans.

      No, he needs to start asking himself "why am I so fucking miserable all the goddamned time?"

    • NYNYNYjr

      Jesus used to do shit like this all the time. He was a good old boy. Once he got drunk and knocked over some check cashing places…whoo boy. Jesus.

      • Negropolis

        And, remember when he was a little boy and sneaked away from his parents to go to the temple, and when Mary asked him why he'd scared her he was all like "Bitch, I went to see my real father." right in front of Joseph? That was one bad-ass little boy.

      And the Secret Service will give him quite a harsh "Tut, tut" and that's it.

    Pastor Jones doesn't see color. He is using his First Amendment rights to protest Obama's policies. The fact that liberals see an image of a black man being lynched and call it racist is the real racism. It's right there in the Saul Alinsky playbook!

    I mean fer fuck's sake. This guy.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Mr Jones must be talking to some alternate universe Jeebus. Bizzaro Jeebus maybe?

        I lived in The Sunshine State for 20 months, 10 years ago, which means I got there just in time to witness the debacle of the 2000 election, but wasn't eligible to vote there yet.

        I had nice neighbors- we lived just north of Tampa- but my neighbor across the street, a retired AF Major, turned out to be a child molester and molested my next door neighbor's daughter ( he was another straight molester, didn't go after my son). The child molestor got put away and the guy who was my next door neighbor killed himself over his daughter getting molested.

        His widow said we were "The nicest Democrats they ever knew". So much for Republicans…

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

          Sheesh. What an awful story.

          Sometimes when I'm feeling particularly obnoxious and self-righteous, I like to pull out stories like this and remind myself that everybody has some terrible suffering in their life that I don't know about, and it's not all about ME.

          Welp. AFAIK, ain't no straight white guys got tits as big as hills, so I guess this means Florida's flatland.

          • glasspusher

            Thanks. Most of them were good people. You could have a conversation with them and even a good political discussion, so they must be the endangered kind of Republican these days.

            Everybody's got their demons, and the people who don't? Well, boredom and squeaky clean are their own kind of demons, I suppose.

          • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

            I think a lot of Americans find political realities very distasteful, and avoid finding out anything, preferring to rail about "the gummint." If they exercised their duties as citizens, they would realize that THEY are the government, as they should be. But that takes thought and work and facing up to some very unwelcome realities, which this nation ditched in favour of escapism and entertainment quite some time ago.

            When I was young, and still thought that life was often unfair to me, someone told me the story about the Buddha and the mustard seed. Apparently, a woman's child died, and in her grief, she went to the Buddha and asked him to bring her child back to life. He considered her request, and agreed. "But first," he said, "you must bring me a handful of mustard seed from a house that has known no sorrow."

            You know how it ends.
