Peggy Noonan Explains Civilization To Savage Muslim Hordes

She would not cower in fear of the Muslim menace. She would not hide out in her aerie high above Manhattan with only her houseboy Manuel and a crate of Dewar’s for company. No sir, not Sister Peggy Noonan of Our Lady of the Xanax Brain Cloud! The dirty savages might have attacked a newspaper office and cut down beloved members of France’s press, but they could not kill the spirit of free nations! Turn it into a raft of terrified, paranoid, jingoistic chest-beating sociopaths bent on revenge, maybe. But never kill it! Read more on Peggy Noonan Explains Civilization To Savage Muslim Hordes…

How Are Wingnuts Reacting To Paris Massacre? You’d Be Surprised! (No You Wouldn’t)

And Billo was one of the more restrained ones
While Parisians took to the streets with their “Je Suis Charlie” signs yesterday to quietly express solidarity with the murdered satirists and bystanders at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the American Wingnut-Industrial Complex was in Full Panic Mode, explaining exactly why we all need to pay attention to this horrific terrorist act by three people that all Muslims bear responsibility for. Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly actually offered one of the tamer bits of stupid on the attack, complaining that when he condemned the murders, Barack Obama was actually downplaying the Muslim threat. The president had expressed confidence that France’s commitment to freedom of speech “is something that can’t be silenced by the senseless violence of the few.” Ah, but Mr. Obama has it all wrong, said O’Reilly: Read more on How Are Wingnuts Reacting To Paris Massacre?

For His Next Trick, Glenn Beck Will Pull Mapplethorpe’s Bullwhip Out Of His Butt

Back in 1987, before many of you young Wonkettarians were born (but not yr Wonkette, because we are ageless, like the sea) there was a kerfluffle over the National Endowment for the Arts and how it funded things that gave Lynne Cheney and some other old-school wingnuts a sad. Your grandpa was probably most upset by Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ, which is…well, exactly what it sounds like. A crucifix submurged in Mr. Serrano’s urine. (We have always taken Mr. Serrano at his word that it was indeed his urine). Yr Wonkette, and most sane people, had entirely forgotten about this whole debacle, but Fox News is still SO MAD and wants the White House to yell at Serrano, or a museum for displaying the piece again, or all of New York, or something. Glenn Beck isn’t just getting mad, however. Glenn Beck is using his sad internet teevee show to  get even: The media giant is reacting to controversy over a painting of President Obama resembling Jesus Christ on a crucifix by putting a bobblehead doll of President Obama into a container of what appeared to be urine. “I like to call this ‘Flobama,’” Beck said with a false French accent, as he played the role of a freedom-loving artist expressing himself on his television program Tuesday evening.  He titled his artwork, “Obama in Pee Pee” and put a price tag of $25,000 on it. Ebay has since pulled the item, despite the proceeds slated for charity. “I have been working on a masterpiece. I have been working on something for quite a while,” Beck clowned. “When I say quite a while, I mean all day, small little doses all day. I drank a lot of water when I did this.” Man, eBay is always trying to keep Glenn Beck down! Read more on For His Next Trick, Glenn Beck Will Pull Mapplethorpe’s Bullwhip Out Of His Butt…
