Our devil leader has stolen that term ["terrorist"] and remade its newspeak definition to now be anyone who might stand in the way of his grand plan to eliminate all life on Earth. The greatest terrorist of all time. His current body count is on par with the tsunami's, but he's got all the short future of humanity to beat that.
To be sure, it is fairly laughable, but Paul goes on to connect it to a more serious claim that he makes afterwards: "This is why they [Democrats] keep losing elections. Forget the fact they don't really give a shit about their common man... A large hunk of the left is just insane." Later he even went on to say that Jeff's post was a "a perfect icon of what is wrong with the party". Really?
When I asked for clarification, Paul explained that the Left liked madman Howard Dean and believes several factually inaccurate statements. Many Democrats are certifiable, he thinks, and that explains why they have lost recent elections.... sigh. Unfortunately I didn't respond to the purported "fact" that Dems don't "give a shit" about their "common man". Most of us do, I would say. Should circumstances warrant, I would even give a shit about Paul-- and I'd make sure it was an "explosively unique" shit, too.
As Bubba sez: Ok, then.
Turnabout being fair (but ignoble) play, I reminded Wizbang Paul of some truly awful statements made in the comments of one of his many tsunami posts. What generalizations and conclusions should we take from those, I inquired. He more or less dismissed the query, and (thankfully) deleted the whole thread. But I saved some of the offending texts, and will present them for the record, following the "idiots will be published" example.
Can't they swim?

Well lets get this thing straight? We should help as much as possible? give give give? O i see lets help out these musliums so that they live to kill us later...ya thats the right thing to do who can argue against that! get your heads out of your ass fellow americans. the muslium religion calls for anyone not muslium to be slain plain and simple- if you don't believe me just read the kuran. i've read some of it. believe me if the situation was reversed see who would come to our aid! ya there are a few countries out there that would help. but that is strictly for show..after all they know were there bread is buttered.

Anybody who can read can understand from the koran that there is no middle ground for "Allah" - you either believe whatever the lone prophet Mohammed says Allah said, or you must die. This is no religion of peace; it is a cluster of situational ethics that allow its followers to lie and kill in the manner of attaining any goal by any means.
What has "Allah" or Islam ever done for anyone or any country? Let's see the proof! Just like socialism and communism, wherever Islam prevails, people are enslaved, poor, or worse, killed by the so called "clerics" who are unwilling to martyr themselves. Their sheep do that for them; if a harem of virgins is waiting, the leaders should be the first ones to strap on the sticks. And the muslim masses should be celebrating whenever one blows themselves up if they really believe what Mohammed said. But they don't and they won't. What a joke! I have friends who are muslim, that I love, but this going-through-the-motions belief system and these "clerics" that instigate hate ruin life for many. There is no joy in Islam - it is a dead end.

Why is the United States sending relief to two countries (Sri Lanka and India) who together make up 1.1 billion people who hate America? Remember Africa and how they thanked the world for relief? They gave the world AIDS. I say let Darwin's "Law of Natural Selection" dictate who survives and who doesn't. The Earth now sustains well over 6 billion people and it is quickly approaching a breaking point of anarchy or ecological disaster which can be detrimental to all life on Earth. This is why disease, famine, war, and natural catastrophies such as the recent Tsunami are necessary. Do not get me wrong. I do feel for these people however I feel more for what is best for humankind and mothership Earth as a whole. I am looking at the big picture.

Noting that this drivel comprises about a third of the commentary on the thread, what broadbrush conclusions about Republicans or right-wing blogs should we make?
I'd say: NONE. ABSOLUTELY NONE.
More: in case you didn't know, there was already a blog controversy (oh how exciting!) over a recent Wizbang! post which basically called out lefty blogs for not paying requisite attention to the tsunami tragedy. Apparently the paucity of posts exposed our callousness. Ezra at Pandagon responded rather forcefully ("the most vicious, disgusting post I've seen in my entire time online") to Wizbang's politicization of the issue. If you want, you can relive the thing via the trackbacks. Not a great use of time, though.
