Fucking defending fucking Obama to the fucking hilt

"Michael Ian Black's Tirade Against a Racist Obama-Hater During Set."
Maybe you don't know who comedian Michael Ian Black actually is, but you'd recognize him if you saw him (that's him up there). Anyway, he was doing a gig and he mentioned that he liked Obama, so some dumbass heckler yells out, "Heil Hitler." Black describes his response this way:
I just started screaming at the guy. Screaming. I don't even know what I was screaming, although the gist was, "How dare you compare Hitler to this president or any president? How dare you equate what he did with Obama is doing? Do you have any idea how insulting that is? Do you know anything about history? Do you have any idea what Hitler did? He killed six million of my people, which is six million more than Obama has killed. You're a fucking idiot. You're a fucking moron. You're the fucking problem with this country. You and your reflexive retardation. You're a fucking this-and-that&" and then I just basically started yelling "fuck" a lot at the guy. Fuck fuck fuck fuck.
Then he stood up and left.
It felt really, really great.
He says he felt bad about it later.
I say fuck that. (Gawker)

So who's behind the opposition to the Cordoba House Muslim community center in Manhattan? Let's take a look at a screenshot of their big protest of it this weekend and see if we can discover any clues:
If you can't make out that banner, it reads "MOSQUE AT GROUD ZERO - THE MONUMENT TO TERRORISM!" So, I'm guessing teabaggers. No big surprise there, since the whole purpose of the fad is to declare, "We're against things!" in various forms of creative spelling. But hey, at least they spelled "mosque" without a K.
They're improving. (Balloon Juice)
