News Roundup for 12/18/09

Two male figures atop wedding cake
This is how the world ends

-Headline of the day-
"Marriage equality is now legal in the nation’s capital."

That's right, the nation's capital falls to the Homosexual Menace. The dark moment was caught for posterity by CNN:

Oh, the humanity... According to the report, among the horrific consequences of this historic defeat for red-blooded Americans is a boost to DC's economy "by over $52.2 million over three years, which would generate increases in local government tax and fee revenues by $5.4 million and create approximately 700 new jobs."

Clearly, we are doomed. I counsel panic. (Think Progress)

-A visit from Buck Turgidson-
You might remember way back to yesterday, when I reported that the John Birch Society would be co-sponsoring the Crazy People's Action Conference next year. Well, it turns out that Birchers have a Google alert set for any combination of the words "John Birch" and "loopy," which ought to keep them pretty busy.

Anyhoo, my post set off the batsignal at JBS headquarters and I got the following comment to my roundup:

When Hillary Clinton mentions a "vast right-wing conspiracy" or global-warming advocates accuse all those who oppose their bad science as "tools of the oil industry" or when a recent journalist claims that a wealthy capitalist, whose father was a founder member of The John Birch Society, has been funding the opposition to Obama Care, the kept media nods its collectivist head in agreement. But when The John Birch Society quotes from David Rockefeller's own autobiography about his support of a one-world government or when it brings evidence to light about plans for a North American Union, the corporate media labels The JBS, "conspiracy nuts." In some cases, lazy journalists, who never leave the comfort of their cubicle, simply rehash the same old lies about The John Birch Society.

It appears that the American people are finally catching up with The John Birch Society. Your smears, and ridicule aren't as efective as they have been. Why? Because what The John Birch Society has been saying is unfolding right before us.

1n 1958, The JBS founder, Robert Welch, made some predictions. His speech is on YouTube. Check The JBS web site: JBS.org or E-mail me at hshurtleff@jbs.org

So, did David Rockefeller say he was for a "one world government?" What do you think? Is there a big plot to start a North American Union? Only in the fevered imaginations of crazy people.

And, if Birchers had been right in everything they'd predicted, we'd all be speaking Russian right now. Americans aren't "finally catching up with The John Birch Society," because polling shows that, on almost every single issue, the right is out of the mainstream -- and JBS is about as far right as you can get without sewing swastikas on your shirt.

There's a reason that the JBS batsignal goes off so often Hal; the consensus position is that you guys are a bunch of frootloops. And, if you don't like people pointing that you're insane, maybe the wise thing to do would be to stop being so insane!

But hey, I guess everyone has to have a hobby and the JBS's hobby is freaking out that someone's putting fluoride in your water. At least it keeps them off the streets. (Griper News)

-Bonus HotD-
"German Reporter To Senator Inhofe: 'You're Ridiculous'."

Turns out Der Spiegel hires some pretty sharp cookies. (Plum Line)
