Barkin up the Wrong Tree

Faster, Pussycat!  Kill! Kill!
The social sophisticates among us continue on in their laudable, open minded and compassionate ways, seeking a better tomorrow through acceptance and understanding... as exemplified by Ellen Barkin. In her commitment to broadmindedness, she called for Tropical Storm Isaac to crush the Republican National Convention and drown all the delegates. Twitting to her followers(?!), she tweeted:
"Come on, Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean!"
Then, to make certain sure her followers could understand her meaning, that she was speaking of the Republicans, and not the Democrats who one might very well confuse with such a description, she added
Okay Ellen, step away from the ledge. Everything will seem much better once we get the medication adjusted.

Good Lord! It's like Sebelius and her anti-bullying campaign. How rich, how completely absurd. These people don't understand just how ridiculously entertaining they are, and I don't mean when she's off playing in some B film.

And all this is done in the face of the recent Family Research Council shooting, where  Floyd Corkins, the 24 year-old Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender volunteer, showed up at the Family Research Council offices armed with a 9mm, fifty rounds of ammunition and a fifteen pack of Chick-fil-A sandwiches. "I don't like your politics."  he said, and then proceeded to start shooting. Fortunately Leo Johnson was there, and wrestled the sandwich munching shooter to the floor, although not before getting shot himself.

This then follows their general discourse: speech should be free (unless it is something they disagree with). Violence is bad (unless it is perpetuated against people they disagree with).

Another Baby Boomer celebrity took to Twitter, tweeting he wanted to see U.S. Congressman Todd Akin suffer a same-sex rape. And here I thought they were against rape, and were insulted to even hear the term "legitimate", as though women never lie and there was no such thing as the Duke Lacrosse case. Oh, wait a minute, they are against rape, unless, that is, it is perpetuated against people they disagree with. 

If they don't like your politics, it's a whole 'nother thing, baby.


  1. Her idiotic comments go along with the perpetual sneer on her face...poor baby.

  2. What's amazing is that not only in content, but in the tone of what they are saying, they show no degree of graciousness, no acceptance that others might have a different view point and that its okay and natural for that to be the case, no evidence of maturity whatsoever. You never hear conservatives speak like this. As a general rule, the left feels free to carry on any way they like. The left then, are the reverse of what they hail as laudable.

    Thanks for commenting, Astrid.
