Every week, Republicans join a competition to see who can say the most outlandish things, and in the process, every week they push the envelope on just how Insane InsaniTEA can become. I trust that you will believe it, when I tell you that last week was no exception.

They would be "amusing" if they were not so dangerous. I also just placed a story out onto C2 of Hamas Isn't ISIS, ISIS Isn't Hamas. Link is below if anyone wants to check it out.
Hamas Isn't ISIS, ISIS Isn't Hamas

As a senior Israel Defense Forces Officer stated in Britain’s Financial Times; "Today we can describe Hamas as a much more restrained, much more responsible organisation than it used to be a decade or two decades ago – this all in light of their statehood experience. This has made them much more responsible, much more cautious."

Hamas isn't like ISIS and never was like ISIS, nor is ISIS indicative of all those who practice Islam, or is a Muslim or an Arab in general. When you get these non professional "idiots" on the air pushing the agenda's of others for a paycheck, this becomes dangerous for all of us.

When we blend the lines of people who perhaps we do not agree with on certain factors or ideology with the ruthless, vile, and totally barbaric off the charts behavior of others, this can slant our policies and certainly in fact fuels the flames of mislaid hate.

Rupert likes his women young, pretty and not too smart. I believe that is the first time in my entire life I've heard a reporter/journalist advocate violence as a solution. Actually most journalists don't advocate for ANY solutions, they just report. Except on Fauxnoise. The rest of those were priceless. As comedy. I think Kevin Sorbo got one too many concussions when playing his silly show. Gohmert is a world class idiot but then everyone but the voters in his district already knows that. Good to start the week off with a giggle and, an, oh those poor fools thought...

It sounds as if she wants to compete to be the smelliest and most vile fish on board instead of the Biblical call to become fishers of men.

Move over, please, Terry. I haven't got a desk down here to bang my head on, so I hope you don't mind sharing. But first let me take offense at some bimbo who couldn't even be bothered to do some real research for the salary she receives and who just makes up some "history" up, marinated in hatred and bigotry and pimped up with the only solution that the amosexuals have for anything: put a bullet in their brain. I'd love to tell her where to put her bullet, but she has no brain...
And we had to suffer all this because? How predictable, she needed a wrapping for another sneer at Obama, sigh...
Terry, here I come.

Terry and Lona, is there room for one more? It's amazing how many GOP think they know everything about other religions - especially when it is clear they know nothing about their own.

Never a short supply of gop/tp insane right-wing rants for the week. lol.

Andrea Tantaros is definitely a "barf bag alert"... referring to the video in the visit site. Andrea needs to have the Treaty of Tripoli shoved into her face to refute her ammosexual faux noise republican supply-side pseudo-christian rant.

ty, tc.

You know, this week's rants scares me more than these rants have scared me for some time. Here's why -

1. These are only five. A few months ago, AlterNet was easily coming up with ten a week.

2. Of the five, only one is from an officeholder or candidate - Louis Gohmert is of course both an officeholder and a candidate since his current term expires every two years.

Are they holding off on the crazy because the election is coming?

That scares the bejeezuz out of me.

GET OUT THE VOTE !!!!!

Trying to get any intelligent comments from a Fox News commentator is like trying to nail jelly to a wall. It always doesn't surprise me that when in doubt the use the whole argumentum ex culo approach to facts. Islam has never really been an evangelistic religion as through out it's history a sharp sword has always got the point over a lot quicker than a kind word. Still, Digger Murdoch does not really go for brains especially in his female staff which appears to be a form of Wingnut welfare as if they did not work for Fox they would most likely be coming off a factory production line like inflatable sex toys and in the case of Andrea Tantaros it would be a bit hairier than the rest.

the scariest/saddest thing is how many people believe Faux Noise and vote for the GOP.....I heard someone representing the right wing on the thom hartmann show today basically saying that everything in the world involving war is currently Obama's fault and of course her only solution to every action is 'boots on the ground"....my son asked if she had a child old enough to serve and would they.....guessing that answer is the usual no.....

There name of a movie is so appropriate when describing right wing pseudo Christian nut jobs . . . Cheaper by the Dozen!

1) Sorbo — Father Zeus would be digusted with Sorbo's comments, but stepmother Hera, a nasty piece of work, would appreciate and cherish them. I'd say he should stick to acting, but it isn't that good. Besides, according to an Wikipedia, he believes that "…Hollywood has limited his career because of his conservative political and Christian views." Yup, conservative . . . not accepting responsibility for his own actions. Apparently, "[h]e has expressed interest in the libertarian philosophy of agorism." Such people don't believe in voting, so maybe, just maybe there will be one less conservative vote.

2) Tantaros (idiot delinked) — The Treaty of Tripoli aside (which I think it is the icing on the cake for the "not a Christian nation" argument), this little cupcake is either not too smart, or smart enough to know that if she brings up the Crusades she shoots herself in the foot. "Those people" (conservatives) just love to rewrite history to fit their narrative. And what they don't rewrite and don't like, they conveniently ignore. Maybe she would consider a "bullet to the head" for herself.

3) D'Souza — Another " idiot de-linked". Obviously, when God was handing out brains, D'Souza thought He said trains and replied he'd get the next one.

4) Iowa Republican — Steve King, Joni Ernst and now this purveyor of dangerous myths, Tamara Scott. What is in the water in Iowa . . . or is it the GMO corn? Six and 7 year old ninja warriors are going to rise up and attack Americans? Geeshhh!

5) Louie Goh-merde (aka Louie Shit for Brains) — Goh-merde and Bachmann are both fruitier than a fruit cake! An investigation into something that does not exist? Declarations just in time for the mid term elections. I hope people hear about these paranoid delusions so that they can vote the Republicanus/Teabaggers into a retirement home.

How did the US get so many flaming lunatics in positions of influence and power? My condolences to all the good, sane Americans who are forced to put up with this crap!

BTW, as JD says

GET OUT THE VOTE!!!!!

Dandelion G ...... True I don't know what the faux head said but I was surprised to read your comment where Hamas and ISIS is not alike .....well---they both hate jews and Americans. AND there are several factors that are influencing young, impressionable Palestinian children to become suicide homicide bombers. Incitement to hate for one. .

The problem with negotiating with Hamas is that they have a vision, a certain kind of utopia. And for that utopia to be realized, the State of Israel must be completely destroyed.”
“Shariah law has to be established, ideally, all over the world,”
GEEZ that's sound so much like ISIS except they are letting Hamas take care of one area and they'll be focusing on another and I hope it won't be the USA anytime very soon because Americans are just not prepared for it. They still think Hamas is peaceful.....the jews are the enemy and ISIS they are just beginning to be afraid of but they seem far away. .

It isn't what "I" said it is the article I posted and what the post was titled. I did however think it was a thought provoking article, but for those who will not read it and assume to know what was in it, I guess it doesn't at all matter. Please take a look at it and read it before commenting about something I didn't say and you didn't read. I will say however, that too many mix apples with oranges and we need to be careful on that, hence why I feel it's an important article.

Yes, GEEZ.....

I really, really wish I had read my mail earlier. I doubt my blood pressure will go down any time soon. I keep thinking they can't express any more ignorance and then they do. Sorry to learn that Sorbo is a racist, we watched his Hercules show long ago. Sadly, I know lots of people who equate Muslim with terrorist and will not entertain any other notion. This despite the fact that we have a mosque in our little town that half our medical professionals attend

This is the sad fact Edith when people allow others to be painted with one brush stroke. All Irish are drunks or all African Americans are involved with crime to all Muslims are terrorist. One of the nicest families I met in this place I live which is an apartment complex, is a family who is Muslim. Her two girls and my granddaughter play together a lot and they are very sweet children and polite.

The Mother sends the little girls over with little treats for my granddaughter and one day I gave the Mother a necklace as she admired another I had similar to it. I buy the necklaces at our yearly Powwow made out of small pebbles. She didn't want to accept it at first but I insisted, she was nearly crying and gave me a big hug.

A few weeks later when her husband came home from a trip and she gave me a lovely dress to give to my Granddaughter, he'd gotten one each for his two girls and one for their friend. She said my husband said she looked same size as his younger daughter so he bought two that size, it fit her perfect. Look at the wonderful exchanges we have made as neighbors. If I felt that all Muslims were terrorists, I'd missed these opportunities of caring and sharing.

We need to do as Rodney King had said, "Why can't we just all get along?" It starts within the heart, if you look at people from a place of love then love is what you are more apt to receive.

Thanks Tom for the great post. Ms. Tantaros needs to brush up on her history and the Unitarian beliefs of our founding fathers. Read, viewed and noted.
Thanks Dandelion for the link to your excellent post, Read and noted.

Fear is a major motivator in the comments made by the rabid Right. Sadly, I doubt they will ever understand the need for discussion, debate, and finding solutions, because they rarely change their mind once it's made up. Thanks, always, for the post, TomCat.
