David Brody Hearts Sarah Palin


Fake Christian Broadcasting Network “journalist” David Brody loves him some Sarah Palin. He did an interview with her and prefaced it by telling his listeners that she’s got “principle and determination” (to do what? Quit her job mid-term?) and, oh yeah, she’s really smart too.

Folks need to cut Sarah Palin some slack. She’s got more principle and determination in one finger than hordes of liberals combined. Oh, and this Mamma Grizzly is smarter than the average bear. She’s ridiculed because she doesn’t play the mainstream media’s game and didn’t go to Harvard or Yale.

Well yes, she may be smarter than the average bear. The problem is, she’s a human being, not a bear. And by human standards, she is staggeringly stupid.

David Brody: “Look, you don’t pull any punches, what a shock. In this book, when it comes to Jesus, you talk about him, you talk about God, Jesus, right there and you talk about how that name that if it wasn’t called Christmas, if it wasn’t about Jesus, then it may be a whole different story, but that name seems to offend and I’m curious about your views on that.”

Sarah Palin: “That’s a great point that you’re bringing up because that’s exactly the point. People who would be offended that we celebrate the Prince of Peace because it is called Christmas, it’s because the name Christ is in the title that they would be offended. So that tells you this war on Christmas is really the tip of the spear when it comes to a greater battle that’s brewing and that battle that’s brewing is those who would want to take God out of our society, out of our culture which will lead to ruin as history has proven. Any country, any government society that has kicked God out of the public square completely, it leads to ruin. Why would we go down that path when we know what would happen?”

I rest my case. Every country of Europe is far more secular than the United States. So is Canada. Is Sweden in “ruin”? Japan is almost entirely devoid of Christianity. Is it in “ruin”? This is just an idiotic cliche repeated by the Christian right over and over again, without the faintest relationship with reality.

    “Any country, any government society that has kicked God out of the public square completely, it leads to ruin.” And which countries would those be?

  2. tbell says

    Sweden, Canada, Japan, etc. aren’t in ruins because God doesn’t particularly care about them. America, however, is God’s favourite nation, so when America goes all secular it will really piss Him off. Study it out.

    The fundi-speak is mind-boggling. They both spoke in word salads. Do they really understand each other?
    Do their listeners really understand them? This country really has been dumbed-down.

    I’m interested in it from the other angle. Which countries have embraced God and didn’t eventually experience “ruin” of some degree? Governments come and go.

    1. Yes, the most religious countries are Somalia, Afghanistan, Mali, Pakistan, Iran, etc.. All are third world basket cases going nowhere.

    The least religious are Western Europe, Japan, and Oceania. All of which are advanced industrial nations with high stanards of living.

    2. You see it in the states also. The most religious states in the USA are generally those of the fundie heartland. And they are full of poverty and social problems.

    3. And it is a central theme of the magic book the xians never read. The Jews were god’s chosen people and Israel was god’s favorite nation. They were overrrun by the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persions, Greeks, and Romans. The Romans finally kicked them out, they were persecuted by xians for 2,000 years, and finally the Germans tried to finish them off and killed half of them.

    The lesson of the bible is clear. Being god’s chosen nation is a total disaster.

    Why would we go down that path when we know what would happen?”

    Good question. Thanks to the fundies, US xianity is dying, shrinking itself down by 2 million people a year so it can go drown in the bathtub. That religion needs to get back in its closet for the well being and future of our society.

    It was always dumbed down. The only differences are that the dumbed down, who used to only have local pulpits and AM radio, now have their own national media outlets, and the dumbed down are more likely to elevate morons to national office.

    Plus, most of the dumbed down have migrated to the same party, achieving Critical Stupid.*

    * The feckless moved to the other one.

    So, what you’re saying is: America has dumbed up?

    Ah but wait….!
    1. Europe has the Euro, which is socialism that has failed because… just because.
    2. Canada is full of Canadians and French speakers and snow.
    3. Japan has tsunamis and earthquakes.
    4. Sweden is part of a peninsula that is shaped a lot like a dong.

    So there!

    That’s the big problem with stupid people like Sarah Palin. They don’t know they’re stupid, they think they’re smarter than everyone else.

    That’s how she can say with a straight face “If everyone knew Christmas was really about Jesus, they wouldn’t celebrate it!” and believe it.

    She’s so fucking stupid she doesn’t think we know what the “Christ” in “Christmas” is for.

  10. says

    People who would be offended that we celebrate the Prince of Peace because it is called Christmas,

    And yet, the only people I see this time of year who are offended are the fundies like her who shit brick because a cashier said “Happy holidays” to them.

  11. caseloweraz says

    A Wasillan named Sarah Palin
    Spends time indignantly railin’
    ’bout how her holy God
    Gets kicked ’round like a clod.
    We’re tired of her weepin’ and wailin’

    Of course they understand each other. They’re saying nothing, and understanding nothing, so have achieved perfect understanding!

    Seriously, though, all their saying is, “feel-good cliche, feel-good cliche” ad nauseum. Since the other person hears it and feels good about being in the proper in-group and feels good. Communication occurred!

    It’s like the barking of a dog. And communicates the same amount of information and serves the same purpose. A tribal ritual.

    Japan is almost entirely devoid of Christianity. Is it in “ruin”?

    Actually, what with their peculiar demographic crisis, the vengeance of the great god Financial Real Estate Bubble, and certain problems emanating from a district called Fukushima (which please keep an eye on: the fuel rod extraction process promises to emanate a lot more problems into the atmosphere and ocean!)… Japan may be in the final phases of pre-ruin.

    I know I’m asking a lot from believers but could they please try to learn that Christ is not a name but a title (the Annointed One) which was actually pretty common a couple of millenia ago when pretty much all rulers, high priests and other folks being honored got scented oil (sounds a little gay hmmmm…..) poured onto them.

    There was no Jesus Christ two thousand years ago. Maybe there was a Jesus the Christ who was annointed by his followers but there is no good historical evidence to support that.

    For Cthulhu’s sake if you’re going to worship a god at least learn its actual name.

    Oh, and this Mamma Grizzly is smarter than the average bear.

    How far down the ladder do you have to be in order to look up to Palin’s intellect?

  17. freehand says

    Next, the War on Easter. if it wasn’t called Easter, if it wasn’t about Asteroth, then it may be a whole different story.

    Look what the Christians did to Easter. They shall not have Christmas also. I will decorate the tree, party, feed friends and strangers, give presents to the children. I will light the house and play the music. I will not let their grim myths darken my household. (Protip: Christmas music is best when sung in a language you don’t understand.)

    Re busterggi @ #17

    Actually, his correct name, if he ever existed which is doubtful in the extreme, is Yeshua ben Yusef of Nazareth. Jesus is the Latin translation of Yeshua.

    It’s interesting how people use the phrase “smarter than the average bear” about themselves or others. That phrase originated from the old Yogi Bear cartoons. Yogi Bear would hatch a scheme to steal some “Jellystone Park” tourist’s picnic basket, and he would justify the scheme to his pal Boo-boo by declaring that he himself was “smarter than the average bear.”

    And then Yogi would end up in some goofball situation and have to be rescued by the obviously more intelligent Boo-boo, thus proving that Yogi was deluded about his own intelligence. Dunning-Kruger, indeed. If someone said that I was smarter than the average bear, I’d be insulted at the underhanded criticism of my intelligence.
