That’s exactly what a demon would say

Alex Jones declared that Barack and Michelle Obama were literally demons who smelled like sulfur. Obama gave this the response it deserved.

We live in a country where flaming nutjobs have massive audiences. We need to laugh at them more.

    “C’mon, people!”

    should be a tshirt with a picture of Obama laughing above that line.

    Laugh? Those wingnuts scare the crap out of me. I can kinda understand people believing in a nice old man in the sky, the “be kind and you’ll live forever” people. But the true believers? Jeeez. I’m not saying they are delusional, but it’s hard to spot the difference at times.

    Some days I just want to crawl under a rock and pretend this isn’t happening. I remember that guy just being one forgettable loon among many when I was younger. Now I see bumper stickers with his URL almost every time I drive in Edmonton.

    Pfft PZ you can hardly talk, you smell of formaldehyde and science so you’re pretty much demonic too.

    If anybody called me a demon, I could only stab them with my pitchfork and lash them with my spikey tail. I think that a demon with the power to become president, who also has the powers of the presidency, could bring in a lot more pain.

    So… a demon is already president, and has been for many years, and the result is today’s world? Demons don’t seem so bad, frankly. I mean, politics is a bit crazy lately, but that’s the OTHER party. Maybe we ought to go with a full demon government from now on.

  7. says

    Demons generally know how to run things. I’m happy with demons as long as they’re not demon clowns. Those guys are the worst. #lesserofevils

    Experimenter A: What would our simulants do if offered an actual demon as a presidential candidate?

    Experimenter B: Nothing very interesting unless we poke that information into the system via one unit specially placed for that purpose.

    Experimenter C: Let’s get coding!

  9. robro says

    This guy is clearly mistaken. Obama was born in Kenya not Hades. Trump said Clinton said so, so there.

  10. says

    Alex Jones is soooo brave! He keeps calling out those horrible demons, putting himself at risk for possession.

    Hmmm, funny isn’t it that Jones doesn’t seem to be worried about being possessed by demons. Almost like he knows they don’t exist….

    I didn’t hear a denial. Demons can be tricky. – Bilb Ono@12

    But they can’t just straight out deny they are demons, brecause that would be unsporting?
