Old and busted: —— eh – there is no old and busted. Golden oldies like calling Republicans raaaaaacist and extreeeeeem never get old as far as Dems are concerned.
But the new hotness is definitely pretending that conservatives are like Islamonazis – basically one step away from imposing their nasty Christian version of sharia law on the populace….which to them would be ten times worse than the cutesy Islamist version. There are worse evils than burying a woman up to her neck in sand and stoning her to death for adultery, ya know.
For instance, here’s a recent headline at Weasel Zippers: MSNBC’s Joy Reid Accuses Republicans Of Imposing “Sharia Law” With Anti-Abortion Legislation…
“I think what probably happened here is that the legislators in North Carolina looked at what’s happening in Texas and other states where women are fighting these laws, where they’re fighting these bills. Where they’re coming out and protesting, and where it’s becoming national news, and they decided to make the world’s most ironic sneak attack.
You know, I’m sure these legislators couldn’t tell you what Sharia law is, but what they think it is, is exactly what they’re doing in these bills, imposing a religious dictate on women.”
Only religious fascists care about what happens to fully formed infants in the womb, you see.
Here’s another one from Monday: MSNBC: Rush Limbaugh An “Egomaniacal Tyrant” Like Moammar Gadhafi…
Via Washington Secrets:
This week’s Mainstream Media Scream features Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC’s “All In” show, lumping Rush Limbaugh in with dictators feted by stars like Elton John.
“As one Twitter user put it, on the bright side, Gigli’s no longer the worst thing she’s done. Now, of course, this isn’t the first time a celebrity has performed for an egomaniacal tyrant who uses fear and paranoia to keep followers in line. Beyonce did sing at a New Year’s eve bash to entertain the family of Moammar Gadhafi and Elton John performed at the fourth wedding of Rush Limbaugh.”
What was Elton John THINKING???!11!
Also on MSNBC, an excerpt from what passed for an enlightened discussion about Wisconsin politics onThe Ed Show:
“Anti-women legislation has been their priority, not creating jobs,” Taylor told Schultz. ”This is no different than what I experienced when I went to Turkey and heard of what the women in the Middle East are experiencing with the Taliban trying to silence them for being at the table.”
The state House also passed the ultrasound bill and Walker says that he will sign it, declaring “I think most people think ultrasounds are just fine.”
“Any time you have a Republican governor and a Republican legislature, you’ve had, you’ve had the odd balls in control of what used to be government,” said Papantonio.
Making a woman have an ultrasound before she kills her unborn child? My God – these “oddball Republicans” are worse than the Taliban who burn schools filled with little girls, and throw acid in the face of women who are not properly covered up.
Yeah. I’m detecting the beginning of a trend, here, which happens to correlate well with Obama’s war on (Christian) religion. And it’s no accident that it’s all happening on MSNBC, aka “Obama’s Official Network.” This could a coordinated narrative like the incessant race-baiting of last year. Or it could simply be that these MSNBC hosts and guests are “just a tad deranged”, as Zip suggests.
Time will tell.
