Well THAT explains a lot!
Well THAT explains a lot!

The rightwing freakout over Pope Francis and his betrayal of all good things (unfettered capitalism) continues, and it seems that his address to a joint meeting of Congress doesn’t seem to have made them a lot happier, probably because he didn’t follow Rep. Steve King’s advice and lay off the divisive stuff about climate change and inequality. Let’s see who he’s gone and ticked off this time!

For one thing, they’re plenty ticked that Francis pulled a bait and switch on them, pretending he was going to go all Samuel L. Jackson on abortion — giving a nod to “our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development” — and then calling for the abolition of the death penalty.

Free-range rage generator Ben Shapiro was quite simply aghast:

shapiro pope 1

He also joined in on the collective cheerleading for just how awesome things are for poor people here:

shapiro pope 2

Good one!

And while you liberals might have liked the pope’s call for America and the world to take in Syrian refugees, Fox’s Andrea Tantaros was quick to point out that Francis is just a big old hypocrite, too:

Tantaros pope 1

The real question, of course, is how many refugees could be housed in Andrea Tantaros’s bikini? The second question is how she missed the memo that Francis actually is housing a Syrian refugee family at the Vatican and has called on every Catholic parish in Europe to do the same.

Dead Breitbart Acolyte John Nolte pointed out that when it comes right down to it, liberals who might have applauded Francis are the biggest hypocrites EVAR:

Nolte pope 1

Nolte was not at all impressed by such cheap symbolism; he prefers the cheap hyperbole instead. Why is Francis is refusing to fill the Vatican with scruffy refugees?

What would happen to Vatican City if it was to do what Francis is asking America to do?

I’m assuming Pope Francis could order such a thing tomorrow, and after the walls came down he could also choose to greet the wave of “pilgrims” with the “warmth of the love of Christ.”

Of course Pope Francis would never do such a thing because he knows what would happen: Vatican City would be no more, everyone’s security and well-being would be compromised, and the standard of living for close to a thousand residents would be destroyed. Chaos would completely destroy the home of St. Peter.

Well, fuck ’em all, then. They don’t like how things are in Syria, they should get a gun and change it. Nolte was also unhappy about the pope’s other skewed priorities:

As our own government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, an organization that butchers millions of innocent babies and sells off their body parts, the Pope ignoring that issue … in favor of the unicorn of Global Warming is an abomination.

And when I live in a country where the poor have air conditioning and cable bills and iPhones and an obesity problem, with all due respect, the Pope’s attacks on capitalism are anti-science. Nothing has done more to lift the poor out of true poverty than free enterprise.

Stupid old pope.

Convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza warned the pope that he’d better be careful who he hangs out with, because liberals are such a disreputable bunch:

dsouza pope tweet

And progressive Catholics? They’re the worst of all, and should probably be excommunicated.

Still, even though they may disagree with a lot of what the pope had to say, rightwingers also tried to find some ways to insist that, all in all, he’s definitely on their side, which is the same as being on America’s side. Jim Hoft, The Former Stupidest Man On the Internet, emphasized the two most pro-conservative things Francis said:

gateway pope hed

As usual, Hoft left the Heavy Hating to his readers, who had some thoughts on everything wrong with the Pope. In a post with the fairly neutral headline “Pope Francis Urges Congress to Reject ‘Mindset of Hostility’ to Immigrants,” Hoft simply posted a video of that part of the speech and let the dogs come a-runnin’:

  • Pope John Paul II grew up with firsthand experience in Communism. Pope Francis wants the world to experience Communism firsthand.
  • Sorry pope, I don’t have a mindset (whatever that is) I have a firm belief based on facts. Illegal immigrants are causing havoc in my country, raping our women, killing our citizens and draining our treasuries. They must be eliminated or my nation is doomed. Now we add in Muslims and we have full blown warfare for the spirit of our country. God help us. We certainly don’t need this false prophet and his lying spirit preaching the doctrine of devils to us.
  • Catholics, this is the teaching you want to support with your donations? To preach stealing? I suggest you all make a point to put a note of a different kind in the collection plate – one saying that you will once again donate when a thief pope is removed from a position of authority within your church. To me, an outsider, I see the raping of a persons wealth as not all that different than the raping of a child.
  • On this Pope’s watch, we’ve seen tens of thousands of Christians killed by the very same people he wants us to take in. Yeah, uh…NO! He scolds us while never scolding Islamic leaders for allowing this genocide. This pope sickens me.
  • Nothing like a Globalist Pope spewing propaganda to start your day.Wasn’t Globalism mentioned in the Bible somewhere? Seems like I remember a certain ‘Tower of Babyl’….I don’t think that worked out too well back then either.

The nice folks at conservablog Weasel Zippers pointed out that Ruth Bader Ginsburg hates the pope. Or the “pope’s,” we guess:

weasel zippers pope tweet

After Francis spoke to Congress, he went to join some 300 homeless people having lunch at Catholic Charities in DC, where he recapped the story of the Nativity, and pointed out that “the Son of God came into this world as a homeless person. The Son of God knew what it was to be a homeless person, what it was to start life without a roof over his head.” He noted that Joseph must have asked, “Why is my family homeless?” and that the richest nations on earth must also ask that question. John Nolte wasn’t having any of that nonsense:

nolte pope 2

Seems to us there was also a guy named Reagan who was big on de-institutionalization, and never followed through on funding the promised community mental health programs that were supposed to go along with it. But nahh, it was all the ACLU and their stupid insistence on “rights,” which can only be secured with firearms.

Finally, for larffs, we have some “thoughts” from way out on the fringe: There’s Alex Jones, who explained Wednesday that if the “slimebag” Pope gets his way on climate change, we’ll all be enslaved, and “a billion people will starve to death in the next ten years.”

Funny, you’d think that Alex Jones would be OK with that, as long as they’re mostly Muslims.

And then there are the wackaloons who make Jones look pretty calm by comparison. We chanced on an important bulletin from some End-Times crazies at “Now The End Begins,” which revealed that Francis opened his address to Congress with “Illuminati Hand Signs”:

Take a look at the photo below [reprinted up top, with caption — Dok Z] and see the Pope starting his remarks by giving the Satanic Illuminati “OK” sign, and you’ll know why he didn’t bother to pray to God before speaking, he was already talking with his god. And you wonder why we call him the False Prophet?

Seriously, where is the justice? Why hasn’t Congress invited any snake-handlers to address a joint meeting? Totally biased on their part, and clearly another sign that the End is Nigh. The blogger was also pretty pissed off that the pope buys all that bullshit about “caring for your neighbor” that somehow got thrown into the Bible in addition to the really important stuff in Leviticus:

At the 24:00 mark, he started promoting illegal immigration, and chastising America for not letting more illegals in over our borders. He called it a sin to not allow more illegals in, and that we should “reject a mindset of hostility” towards them. What part of the word “illegal” does the Pope not grasp? At this point he invoked the “golden rule” and got the obligatory standing ovation. It’s now the 30:00 mark, and I am still semi-patiently waiting for the “vicar of Christ” to give Jesus a shout out. Crickets., nothing but crickets.

That monster. You’d almost think that he was trying to talk about doing things in the world instead of trying to proselytize, and God knows Jesus never actually gave a damn how people treated each other, as long as they didn’t fuck the wrong way, love the wrong people, or show mercy to foreigners.

    To answer Tanrtaros’ stupid question, the Vatican is taking in two families, just as they have asked all parishes worldwide to take in at least one family.

    The Pope needs to remember the words of our lord, who spake thusly: “Blessed are the fetuses and after they pop out of the vagina, fuck ’em.”

  • Zippy

    Gotta love the radical right- Kim Davis is a hero for dragging her religion into the workplace and denying gheys their civil rights based upon her beliefs as a fringe Apostolic Evangelical. But the Pope needs to sit down and shut up and not mix religion and politics by discussing poverty or refugees or the damage from climate change. Let that sink in for a minute while you weigh the scope of the hypocrisy necessary to hold those two ideas simultaneously…

    One is a bigoted backwoods bumpkin who deems her religious beliefs trump the Constitution and she is praised and adored for her defiant preening for the cameras while Eye of the Tiger played in the background. The other is the Holy See, leader of 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide who endeavors to live of the teachings of Jesus through humility, compassion and grace; caring for the least of us- the poor, the sick, the displaced, those in need. Yet the haters flock to the bigot, while they shun and chastise the man who champions helping those in need- because he’s “politicizing” issues by daring to address social injustices.

    • Villago Delenda Est

Hell they even have a Baptist minister running, who claim “Gods Law” supersedes the constitution!!! And out of all the religious leaders to attack they chose the freaking POPE. Next they are going skin and purée an entire litter of puppies and rectally feed them to a bunch of homeless children!!!

    If the abortion debate keeps going long enough, and Satan knows it will, I hope some journalist, somewhere, eventually asks an anti-choicer: If abortion is murder, should the mother, father, doctor, and any accessories be sentenced to long imprisonment or even execution? With abortions and miscarriage-inducing options freely available outside the U.S., should law enforcement authorities track every pregnancy and investigate every rumored pregnancy? That’s conservative!

    The irony of Alex The Mutibagger-Cluster Crackpot Jones the Crank Magnetist and High Priest of Derp worrying that doing something to find solutions to our climate issues might mean people starve… is the opposite is true.

    Global Warming is bad enough. Sea levels will rise displacing people. Displaced people leads to social strife, etc.

    But also too: our reliance on ground water irrigation for present agriculture technology has lead to 12 of the world’s largest aquifers being depleted and one of them being basically bone-dry (and it will take thousands of years to replenish).

    This is one of the major factors that lead to the Syrian uprising that the media keeps glossing over: about 1.5 million people moved into Syrian cities from agricultural communities as their agricultural sector collapsed. Suddenly there were 1.5 million newly unemployed and desperate folks blaming Assad’s regime for not having foresaw this. That initial revolt and civil unrest was quickly exploited by regional sectarian actors, and wa-la.

    Oh, and the drought that began in 2006 and continues to this day in Syria didn’t help either (ooops Climate change).

      Add to it being an illegal immigrant is not a criminal act.

      Immigration law is a civil statute, and it can be changed rather easily; no one is ‘illegal’ for life.

    • Robyn Ryan

      There are no ‘White’ natives in the American hemisphere. They all immigrated from Europe and slaughtered the Natives. Be glad the Natives aren’t as hostile as their conquerors.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    I am not a Catholic but it is my understanding that the Pope is infallible only when speaking ex cathedra. In all other matters, Stuart Varney is infallible, established by the encyclical De Sapientia culus vnius Anglici issued by Pope Napoleon XIV.

    • Zippy

      Funny how they seemed to have ignored that detail for the last couple thousand years while the Vatican ceaselessly meddled in worldwide politics

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        A pope is only permitted to meddle when it makes the right happy. That’s in Leviticus ain’t it?

        • DoILookAmused2u ?

          Maybe it is in Genesis. All the best really stupid parts are usually in there. Leviticus is a close second.

          • Jen_Baker_VA

            Ah I found it! The Gospel of Wingnut, chapter 1 versus 1 through 500,000
            Thou shalt only say what we tell you to say because we are better at Jesus than anyone else.

          • OldMayfly

            Leviticus is very boring–but not as boring as Numbers.

        • Zyxomma

          Aahhh, Leviticus. The most abused-by-wingnuts section of the entire babble. It’s long and boring because it’s full of ritual for Cohens (Jewish priests) and although they have descendants there haven’t been any Cohens in practice since the destruction of the 2nd temple in Jerusalem (where the Dome of the Rock now stands).

          Funny, innit, how the wingnuts ignore all the instructions about hair and beards and which foods are suitable to eat, which suitable for offerings, how women should deal with menstruation, leaving the edges of fields unharvested so the poor can glean them, how to worship and live correctly (according to the times, of course, so it includes stuff like which slaves are legal), and above all how to worship and fear God? Yet, they pick ONE little piece of ONE little verse (19-something, tl;dr), and make it the central tenet of the Xtian faith. Scum.

      • Robyn Ryan

        Actually, outside of a few unsuccessful Crusades, and the Spanish Inquisition’s destruction of Central and South American society and culture, Christianity was largely unknown outside of Europe until the 1700s. So we’re actually looking at about 400 years of global reach, most of it after 1800s for Northern euro-Christianity. Please don’t give them more of a pedigree than they’ve earned.

        • OldMayfly

          More of a pedigree or more of a rap sheet?

    • chicken thief

      Stuart Varney don’t even talk American.

      • JaaaaaCeeeee

    When the “Divine right of Kings” (and later, its Protestant extension, the proto-capitalist “doctrine of election’) was the law of the land, the ruling elites (with a rare exception here and there) had nothing but good things to say about the Roman Catholic papist worldview.
    Now that the (a?) Pope “has found Jesus,” the ruling elites can’t find enough ways to distance themselves from, and/or denounce, this heretic.

        Oh, no wonder at all. If it had been Pope Rat, they’d have been front and center with their Opus Dei rosaries in their hands. Just like they don’t view Obama as the legitimate president, neither do they view Francis as the legitimate pope, since they view what he teaches as being in error and neveryoumind that promise of faith and obedience they took when they became members of the church. Of course, if you squint your eyes, it looks an awful lot like the freedom to dissent that liberal Catholics have been claiming over birth control, divorce, abortion, and homosexuality (which they have roundly denounced) but this is different! Seriously, listening to the justifications of why conservative church members are allowed to dissent and why liberal ones are not is a great lesson in self-unawareness and hypocrisy. It’s more butthurt than all the Desitin in the world could handle.

      The nice thing about that—and several other of his non-wingnut zingers (not going to call them progressive, quite, but non-wingnut is enough, really)—is that after the kneejerk reaction, displayed all over the internet today, there will be quite a few (mostly Catholic) religious conservatives who (perhaps grudgingly) examine their own positions, quietly, and read the speech again, and maybe do a little research, and a little thinking, a little praying … and quietly, with no fanfare, change those positions.

      I wish New Pope™ had a fresher, sweeter, more progressive formulation, but I’m okay with him picking up bits of the “market of ideas” such as it is, and maybe changing a few minds in the direction of less unthinking reaction.

        You may have something there. Here in the greater Milwaukee area (nowhere near as cool as the Milwaukee area — 414! Represent!) I was stunned when the local Fox affiliate ran a feature last night on a van-load of VERY Catholic young women all excited to drive all night to see this Pope. Thing is, they all live in an Opus Dei-affiliated residence for women, very low profile, surprised to see it mentioned at all, even more surprised that they weren’t going in order to PROTEST this Pope. They genuinely admired the guy. We’re talking about an institution still suffering indigestion about Vatican II.

    The right-wing reaction to Pope Francis makes me sad. These people are convinced of their own righteousness, they don’t mind letting the world know that they are right, and they do mind a whole hell of a lot when they are called out for their complete lack of empathy or their hypocrisies or their embrace of stupid, untenable positions. We don’t agree with the Church on a number of things, but this Pope is a raiser-upper, while the right-wingers are puncher-downers. They punch down on women, minorities, immigrants and working people. If you want an overly simplified definition of “fascist”, it’s a puncher-downer. And fascists/puncher-downers have no use for raiser-uppers.

    • MilwaukeeKent

      Puncher-downers have an innate fear of raiser-uppers. Raiser-uppers might create punch-backers, who would cause a lot of puncher-downers to become back-downers, which would be a downer…

At some point their bumper sticker lies will catch up to the ‘heartland’ and those people will figure out that the repug politicians have been screwing them and they will exit in droves. This can be hastened by Bernie going into Red States and showing how the repugs are using them and screwing them.

They are really quite frightened as they should be as the Pope is giving voice to movements across the globe to reign in or smash corporatist capitalism. Too bad for the likes of Jones and his weepy friends as some for of socialism is quietly creeping into their nappies.

    >>”Take a look at the photo below [reprinted up top, with caption — Dok Z] and see the Pope starting his remarks by giving the Satanic Illuminati “OK” sign …”

    Close. The Pope is using Illuminati sign language roughly translated as
    “Listen up, assholes.”

    As our own government gives hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood,
    Really? Is that per year, or what?

    “The real question, of course, is how many refugees could be housed in Andrea Tantaros’s bikini?”
    Do you remember Trump’s comments about Fox news reporter Megyn Kelly? What you said here about Tantaros is the same thing. Do you understand the problem with that?

    I’m an atheist, but I have to admire this Pope, he’s right our there battling the Antichrist (Evangelicals).
