Keyes: Obama Pot Comments Just Like Terrorists

Alan Keyes, who took a serious ass kicking when he carpetbagged into Illinois in 2004 to run against President Obama in a Senate race, has got himself all fired up again. This time it’s over Obama’s comments about pot being no more dangerous than alcohol. Naturally, that makes Obama like both Nazis and terrorists.

Obama’s nonchalant attitude toward things that make people stupid has its counterpart in other matters of policy, and other insistent demands from the elitist elements of American society today…

Yet the TV shows, movies, and games massively promoted by these very elites are increasingly saturated with themes (zombies, vampires, beastly human-animal hybrids, amoral thugs, and anti-heroes who shadow forth every conceivable variety of conscienceless evil) that preoccupy the soul with evil. They focus on concepts, tools, and stratagems for the wholesale violation and degradation of human beings. Rejecting the Christian challenge (“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good”), their preferred depictions of supposedly humanitarian heroes are often molded according to the treacherous maxim “It takes evil to fight evil.”

Thus, righteous indignation is made to flow in channels of wickedness, as if there is no weapon in the arsenal of God’s creation potent enough to overcome the power of every imaginable evil. Such “entertainments” may be the most insidious kind of disinformation. And they may yet prove more destructively potent than the Nuremburg rallies, or the Hitlerjugend, as factors for producing virtually soulless, self-glorifying perpetrators of atrocity…

Much like the terrorists who targeted the Towers in New York, which symbolized America’s material commerce, these scornful elitists target the pillars of moral and spiritual commerce that uphold our political constitution. But when liberty’s pillars fail, the smoke that rises from their crater will signify the fatal triumph of our stupefaction, courtesy of those, like Obama, who are working hard to make us too stupid to be free.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: No one mixes a word salad like Alan Keyes. Please pass the dressing.

    Keys didn’t need any assistance to become stupid. He did it on his own,

    … these scornful elitists target the pillars of moral and spiritual commerce that uphold our political constitution …

    Does Mr Keyes mean ‘bootleggers’?

  3. says

    What the heck is “spiritual commerce” anyway? The buying and selling of souls? Or just a nonsense phrase seeking an emotional response?

  4. matty1 says

    I tried to understand this I really did but I can’t work it out. How is pot connected with vampires on TV or either with terrorists?

  5. Synfandel says

    So, Mr. Keyes doesn’t like movies that depict bad people. Show me a movie that doesn’t have anyone behaving badly and I will show you a cure for insomnia.

    “…shadow forth…”?

  6. alanb says

    If Alan Keyes denies that alcohol is as dangerous as marijuana that makes him nonchalant toward something that makes people stupid. Which makes Alan Keyes just like a terrorist. Beyond that I was unable to find any discernible logic after reading through once. And I refuse to subject myself to a second reading.

    Real-life exhibit A – Dick Cheney.

    courtesy of those, like Obama, who are working hard to make us too stupid to be free.

    Wait a sec, which party in the US is the one trying to wreck schools’ with taking up time with prayers and pledges, teaching creationism, deliberately NOT teaching about Global Overheating (or that its is “controversial” amongst scientists when 98% agree on reality there), distorting history to suit political ends, ad nauseam?

    Pretty sure its not the Democratic party or Obama who is pushing the stupidifying of the United States..

    I don’t remember any comments about conservatism…..

  10. coffeehound says

    But it is amusing to me that the liberal elite which is stupidifying America wants everyone to attend college, to learn critical thinking(which is nearly illegal in Texas), and that also makes them snobs….

  11. Nihilismus says

    Rejecting the Christian challenge (“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good”) . . .

    But when Christians have to use angry rhetoric to get other Christians to feel angry enough to do something, that’s overcoming evil with good?

    What about all those Christian movies that violently show innocent but not chosen people getting killed by forces caused by God? What about all those evangelical Christian actors who star in secular violent movies (as long as there are no sexual situations)?

    What about all the talk about starting a military coup and hanging the traitors?

    Wait… the US Constitution is upheld by the demnisation of marijuana? Huh. Learn something new every day.

    Methinks the gentleman doth protest overmuch.

    That is: Maybe his rant will make more sense is someone would stop with the bogarting and pass the joint over this way.

  14. busterggi says

    I wish Keyes would please list all the tv series that ended with ‘evil’ winning – I’ve never seen any but would like to.

    I take it that Keyes disapproves of The X-Men and The Avengers?

    Uh, that’s not Hollywood; that’s the Republican caucus on C-Span.

    Prairie Bob — It won’t help. I’m stoned, and it still makes absolutely zero sense.

    scienceavenger — +1 for Weird Al.

    re: the OP — Oh, just wait until he discovers Furries. *popcorn*

  18. says

    Y’know, I used to want the popcorn concession for the threads that devolve into the GOOD guys (us) and the revanchist asshole ReiKKKwing fucktards (them) shitflingin’ rodeos but, and I’m thinking outside the wrapper here, I have a better idea.

    On these threads where POT is going to be the new great SATAN? I want the Twinkies concession. I think that GOD musta heard my prayer because they’re once again making those sweet, sweet, capable of surviving Nu-Q-Lar Armageddon, treats*.

    * Or maybe they’re just repackaging the ones they made back in the 50’s and stored in CD Air Raid Shelters. Would we be able to tell the difference?
