Yes, it’s the birthday of Scott C., noted blogger, novelist, screenwriter (specializing in fish movies), satirist, martial artist, cat wrangler, humanitarian, and bon vivant. And a good friend. So, in his honor, I gathered up some of his favorite things and have posted them here, for all to share.
First, here’s the obligatory photo of a topless Ann Coulter.
Next, here are some words of wisdom from the Oracle of Maine, Pastor J. Grant Swank:
B. Hussein has little actual hands-on foreign relations experience and yet he claims that he has the wisdom to sit down now with leaders of such opposing nations as Syria and North Korea. No need for preparatory modes prior to sitting at the same table with obvious foes to our existence, just sitting near their bodies to presto into the air pleasant conclusions.
That’s certainly something to think about. And Scott, on your birthday, may you sit near to the bodies of some diminutive dictators and presto into the air some pleasant conclusions of your own.
And just for you, here’s a bonus Swankism:
There is that American public that is so sick of the slick liberal mouthpieces that these common sense folk rivet to the real-life quotient in Sarah Palin.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Or at all, since I have no idea what Swank means by it. But I do think that riveting to the real-life quotient of Sarah sounds kind of futuristic and Soylent-Greeny, so I’m going to urge all common sense folk to try it.
Next, since we all know how much Scott admires Jonah Goldberg, I wanted to share with you this VDare column by one Matthew Richer, who starts out by acknowledging the debt that he and his fellow racists owe to Jonah:
Back in January, Jonah Goldberg wrote in National Review Online that if Senator Barack Obama loses the presidential election
“I seriously think certain segments of American political life will become completely unhinged. I can imagine the fear of this social unraveling actually aiding Obama enormously in 2008.” We all know, of course, just which “segments of American political life” Goldberg is referring to so coyly. This “social unraveling” really means race riots.
In Salon.com, Glenn Greenwald immediately criticized Goldberg for making such an (allegedly) racist observation. And to my knowledge, Goldberg has not repeated it since. But it is an important question and Jonah Goldberg deserves credit for raising it, however gingerly.
Certainly we should all credit Jonah for this astute observation about the upcoming race riots, but I think the real originator of the idea was Jonah’s political mentor, Charles Manson.
Yes, back in the 1960s Manson preached to his followers about “helter skelter,” race riots that would lead to the end of all civilization. I think Jonah should credit Manson next time he writes on this subject. And I’m sure Manson has many other interesting things to say about the current political race — but for some reason, the LA Times hasn’t given him a column. But then, Manson’s mother wasn’t Lucianne Goldberg (at least, as far as we know).
Anyway, here’s the conclusion of Mr. Richer’s column:
Some will call it bigoted to prepare ourselves for post-election race riots. But given recent history, it’s all too possible that if Barack Obama loses the presidential election, a large number of black Americans just might become unhinged.
To avoid the bloodshed caused by these unhinged black Americans, we could just cancel the election and say that Obama won — but Mr. Richer points out that there might be riots even if Obama wins, “because blacks have a history of violence in victory.” So, I guess we were screwed the minute we let a black man run for President. Let that be a lesson to you about the danger of allowing our country to be multi-racial!
And no birthday tribute would be complete without inviting one of Scott’s heroes, Dr. Mike Adams. Ph.D., to share a few words with us all. So, here’s a bit from a recent Dr. Mike column wherein he advises a friend how he should come to God and thereby rid himself of all anger, like Dr. Mike has. (Yes, Dr. Mike is now apparently a paragon of serenity and love for his fellow man, all thanks to abandoning atheism.) There’s even a little confession dropped into the story:
Any outbursts of anger you may have displayed during your prolonged battle with God probably pale in comparison with the ones I displayed during my days as a hardened and outspoken atheist. It didn’t help that during that time I badly abused alcohol and used drugs that were intended to fill a gap in my life caused by my rejection of God.
Regardless, I am still having to apologize to people I hurt during that period of my life. But I don’t dwell on it because I understand the origins of that anger. It’s all about separation from God. And once we have the courage to step away from atheism – or the intellectually weaker position of agnosticism – the anger just disappears.
The fact that Dr. Mike is an addict explains a lot. But the fact that he doesn’t realize that he is still the angriest person in North Carolina indicates that his connection to reality is still pretty tenuous. Time for some more AA meetings, Dr. Mike!
And lastly, here’s Renew America’s Sher Zieve, who read Scott’s piece about wingnut Godwinism and decided she could all top the pundits cited.
After observing the growth of Barack Hussein Obama’s increasingly militant and dictatorial movement over the last several months, I have — on many occasions — been reminded of the infamous Russian tyrant Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. [...]
One major difference between Obama and Stalin, however, is that Stalin is said to have gradually increased power within the Soviet Union’s Communist Party. Obama is grabbing it immediately and will keep his power in place via his “Truth Squads,” his militant Obama Youth (as the Nazis had their “Hitler Youth” this is more Hitlerian that Stalinistic) and his national voter fraud unit ACORN.
Thus, Obama is WORSE than Stalin, and is also a lot like Hitler. He sounds like one heck of a guy. So, as Pastor Swank said last week, “Beware America, bewaaarrrrre!”
And have a happy birthday, Scott.
