RepublicansOnParade

Here is the fortieth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is nut-job conspiracy theorist Todd Starnes for frightening demented sheeple with Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian lies.

0226BibleBannedIn was on Bryan Fischer’s radio show last week where we first heard the absurd right-wing theory that the FCC was planning on stationing agents in newsrooms all over the country in order to "monitor" what sort of stories they ran. The entire thing turned out to be total nonsense, but the Right threw such a collective fit that the FCC pulled the plug on the study.

So naturally Fischer invited serial fabricator Todd Starnes on to his program today to talk about the issue. During the discussion, Fischer asked Starnes if he agreed with his conspiracy theory that the FCC will eventually start shutting down anti-gay radio programs and Starnes conceded that that was a very real possibility, adding his own prediction that the government will actually attempt to outlaw the Bible…

Here’s the video: Barf Bag Alert!!

You can tell Starnes is a Republican because he twists the Bible to promote hate.  You can tell that the real Jesus was not a Republican, because he did the exact opposite.

  1. "Barf Bag Alert" is not sufficient for these right wing evangelical pseudo Christian morons.  They are truly erstz, being a usually artificial and inferior substitute or imitation of being Christians.  There is nothing of authentic Christianity in their rants and ravings.

    I am of the opinion that Fischer, Starnes and their ilk should be glad that they, constitutionally, have the right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  Now they need to be reminded that so do the rest of the American people. 

  2. "All this hatred" is coming from your side of the aisle, you dumb old fart!

  3. Yes, one thing I am hearing more and more is the reminder that freedom of speech does NOT mean freedom from criticism.  I am hearing this on the left applied to the right, because the left knows it and does not comprise a bunch of whiny bags who yell "Persecution!" at every disagreement.  The right, on the other hand, does.

    Oh, and Lynn has a point.  Maybe "barf bag alert" should be accompanied by "blood pressure alert."

  4. Barf Bag Alert!!

    Nut Jobs on Parade… :mrgreen:

  5. These barf bags can take any verse in the Bible and twist it to mean what they think it shoud mean.  Calling them pseudo Christians is really kinder than I would be.

  6. Thanks all.  In future, interpret "Barf Bag Alert!!" to include menstrual cramps, PTSD, and Republication that requires Dulcolax.

  7. "You can tell Starnes is a Republican because he twists the Bible to promote hate.  You can tell that the real Jesus was not a Republican, because he did the exact opposite."  I completely agree – and one may substitute any Right Winger's name for that of 'Starnes' and the statement will still sadly be true. 

    I love the posts – and have to agree with the 'bp alert' – I usually have to avoid them because of the damage to health they cause as my bp skyrockets – I will read all those warnings into the 'barf bag alerts'!
