The Squawking of Harpies
There I was minding my own business. Tweeting with my buddies, chatting about little hands, spray tans and ulcers.
Someone shared this article from Ann Coulter. I used to be a fan. Back in the 1990s and a bit of the early 2000s.
Then wars broke out and I didn’t have much time to worry about political stuff. Had some military “stuff” to do. You know, those “war things”.
The article just needed a response. Ann has really stretched it this time.
All quotes are from her article: The Wrath of Khan
(did the Star Trek folks okay the usage of their copyright, hope so)
Khizr Khan, the Muslim "Gold Star Father" who harangued Americans at the Democratic National Convention, with a mute, hijab-wearing wife at his side, is just another in a long string of human shields liberals send out to defend their heinous policies. The "Jersey Girls" were the classic example, first described in that magnificent book Godless: The Church of Liberalism.
Those that live in glass houses, should not lob boulders at the other side of the isle. The problem with accusations about 'using' people to be 'human shields' to defend their policies, is that in order for those accusations to have any merit, one must not be doing it too.
The RNC had a Gold Star on stage.
Where's Ann's outrage at the GOP using a Gold Star to be a human shield against the Democrats? Hmmmm.....must be somewhere in the white space between her written words. ;)
In order to shut down a debate they're losing, Democrats find victims to make their arguments for them, pre-empting counter-argument by droning on about the suffering of their victim-spokesperson. Alternative opinions must be preceded by proof that the speaker has "sacrificed" more than someone who lost a child, a husband, or whatever.
Again, don't be a hypocrite! This was used against the Democrats with Ms. Smith and Benghazi!
Khan's argument, delivered angrily and in a thick Pakistani accent at the DNC, is that "our" Constitution requires us to continue the nonstop importation of Muslims.
Ah! The disingenuous 'argument'.
Maybe it's just me, but I think Ann was watching a different speech. Here, she claims that Khan's argument is about the 'non-stop' importation of Muslims.
I presume that Ann was making her case based on the following excerpt of his speech, as it's the only time he 'argued' about anything Trump said on the matter:
If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have been in America. Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities -- women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country."
Hmmmm.....I can see all the talk about 'importation', of 'immigration' and unfettered access into this country by Muslims!
Can’t you? No? Look closely....closer....Still No?
Ah! You aren’t reading the white space (or silence if you listened to the speech) between Khan’s words! It’s there! Ann saw and heard it, must be true! (sidebar: She’s lying)
Maybe that whole little part about 'build walls and ban us from this country' is liberal code for: We want 'non-stop' importation of Muslims into this country, because it's in my pocket US Constitution you fools!
Or MAYBE, Ann just hit too much wine when she was writing this, and decided to go for more gusto in her disingenuous commentary of half truths, controversial signaling to 'read between the lines’.
AKA what Ann says, you need to believe, because if you don’t, that means you aren’t so stupid and ignorant. You can’t just get out there on the Internet and read/watch for yourself! THE HORROR!
If the U.S. Constitution required us to admit more than 100,000 Muslims a year -- as we do -- we'd already be living in Pakistan, and Khan wouldn't have had to move to get that nice feeling of home. So the "argument" part of Khan's point is gibberish.
If Khan actually said all of this, Ann might have a point. But hey, what's the truth when an election is at stake!
What's the facts, when you have to lie in order to boost some candidate's poll numbers? WHAT DOES IT MATTER!
So, the 'diatribe' about an 'argument' that actually isn’t the 'argument' that Khan was making is.....wait for it....just a second....anticipate it....G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H. 😱
Luckily, Khan had Part Two: His son died in Iraq, whereas Donald Trump does not have a son who died in Iraq, so he can't say anything.
Luckily for Ann, neither does she or Trump. And again, she missed the point. She so missed the point that her brain must have hitched a ride on a drone, which dropped her off into the ocean, and it landed in the Mariana Trench.
And it's resting in the belly of a Megladon that is about to come back to the surface to terrorize the entire population of California and Mexico.
Hey, that was a good Steve Alten book, but it’s about as realistic in fiction as Anne’s G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H is as attempted non-fiction! THE HORROR!🙀
Look away if you can’t handle the truth!
Yes, a candidate for president of the United States is supposed to be prohibited from discussing a dangerous immigration program because Khan's son was one of fourteen (14!) Muslim servicemen killed by other Muslims in our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That's why we're obligated to import yet more Muslims – including, undoubtedly, some just like the ones who killed his son. Q.E.D.!
Scratch that. Maybe her brain really ended up landing on Lock Ness. And it's resting in the belly of Nessie right now.
Who will actually be coming back to terrorize Scotland, Ireland, the UK and even the Atlantic Ocean! Another great Steve Alten fiction. ;) 🐲
If you think that doesn't make any sense, keep your yap shut, unless you lost a child in Iraq, too.
I didn’t lose a child in Iraq, but I lost a few friends, so will that do? Because, I just can’t keep my yap shut, when Ann’s lying. It’s important to be truthful.
There were virtually no Muslims in America before Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration act. Today, we admit more immigrants from Muslim countries than from Great Britain.
I think we need Fact Check on this one. I'm going to have to give Ann a HALF TRUE, followed with STRETCHING IT.
(intermission break, next part is long)
Everyone took a break right? Hope so.
We've had Muslims in the U.S since long before we were a country. Because Ann said 'virtually no', she's not entirely wrong.
Onto the Muslim Countries vs. Great Britain. Yes, she is correct.
As of 2014, and I did the research, you can go to this link, download the data, like I did, do the sums, as seen in and it’s true. (click on Get Data in the link)
Collective Countries who's primary religion is Islam: 2,920,429
Do you want to know the rest of the story? If so, continue with me. If not, skip this part.
Information is power, and power is fact, and fact is the basis for realistic, logical and rational thought.
Just because we have more Muslim immigrants than Brits coming into our country, that doesn't mean we have a serious issue.
Now, since Ann is making the case against the dangers of Muslim immigrants, keep that number in mind, collectively, from all Islamic countries, we had 2,920,429 immigrants.
Here's how immigration plays out. I've taken the Muslim countries OUT of their regions, so their numbers aren't factored into their regions estimates. I made a country Muslim if they were 50% or more Muslim.
A few of them, I just categorized as Muslim, mainly because the region was mainly Muslim, which I think is fair.
I have included a link where I got the data, it’s above. It’s an excel spreadsheet, I cross checked every country on this list, against the 2014 world census numbers on how many Muslims were in their countries.
Again, any country with 50% or larger, was considered Muslim. I have noted in parenthesis, what countries were excluded from their region’s numbers.
Muslim Nations: 2,920,429
Europe: 4,653,505 (minus Bosnia/Herzegovina)
Asia: 12,701,241 (minus Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Kazakhstan,Pakistan, Sir Lanka, Uzebkistan, Western Asia (Middle East, except Israel))
Africa: 1,567,642 (minus Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Other N.Africa, Sierra Leone)
Oceania (Australia et al): 241,200
So, in the grand scheme of things, it looks like our immigration ISSUE is Other Americas and Asians.
See how the whole picture makes it a bit more realistic. ;)
Are Americans allowed to have an opinion on whether that's a good idea?
Are Americans allowed to show all the facts? You know about immigration stats that are actually more realistic than your fantasy of more Muslims than Brits? Because that means something right?
RIGHT! Or maybe, we just don’t have a huge large immigrant population that are Muslims vice Europe, Asian, and the Americas. Hell, about the only regions of the world that immigrate here less than all of them are the Aussies, Kiwis, Africans.
They must HATE US! THE HORROR! *swoon*
So far, it's worked out great!
Yes, yes it has. And worked out to make you the laughing stock of this country! Just sayin’! That’s how I FEEL.
By the way, you need to not open your yapper, since you didn't wear combat boots, I'm tossing the boot card.
You can't say anything.
TAKE THAT! HA HA HA! *sarcasm*
Momma, Momma, can’t you see? What Ann Coulter has done to me? 🎯
In addition to the sudden appearance of honor killings, clitorectomies, hijabs and massive government frauds, Muslim immigrants have given us: The most devastating terrorist attack in world history, followed by terrorist attacks at Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Times Square, Vaughan Foods in Oklahoma, San Bernardino and an Orlando nightclub, among other places.
That's a whole lotta human rights violations! I mean, I can't believe I havent' seen an honor killing, someone taking clits off, and *@@$.
I mean, my town of Tucson, is one of the 'refugee places'. We've got hijabs walking all over this town!
I can’t believe I haven’t seen this *@@$! AND, as a military vet that has been in the Middle East, I’ll level with you Ann, and everyone else. I have a bias. I do.
I see an abuya, burka, hijab, hell, a Middle Eastern in generally, I get a bit anxious.
I watch them out of the corner of my eye. I can’t even sit in the SS office or the DMV, where they gather, I’m assuming based on Ann’s mentality, they are turning those places into mosques. It’s FEASIBLE! 😒
Anyways, I do get 'squirrely' when around mass groups of Muslims. I can’t help it.
Years of being attacked via words, looks, other things that go boom, by their countrymen, you get a bit squirrely.
🎶We like the cars, the cars that go boom🎶
(oh stop being shocked. I’m a military vet. Its called dysfunctional vet humor. My fellow DVs would say worse)
🎶 Wasting away in mortaritaville. Looking for my lost IED.🎶
(oh stop! You know you were signing the song.)
Doesn’t mean I hate em, nope. Just means I’m hyper vigilant based on wartime experience. SO.....if I’m just NOT seeing all this stuff that Ann is babbling about....I come to the conclusion that the following occurred:
Her brain decided that a Megladon and Lock Ness weren't enough. So, she decided to embark on a trip, or her brain did, into Antarctica, where it ended up under the ice, in the belly of a pre-historic whale that would make Moby Dick look like Donald Trump's hands. Tiny.
Red rover, red rover, please don’t send that tiny man right over…👅
And...then it got regurgitated and ended up in the belly of some pre-historic alligator, which was the size of New Zealand, and you guess it! It ended up terrorizing all of the southern hemisphere. Another Steven Alten fiction, that is more feasible than Ann’s G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H
I digress....onward American Political Warriors.....Take a break. You earned it you delightful, monsterous #Never people. Drink a shot every time you get attacked by another #Never….
We've admitted 2 million Muslims just since 9/11 – that’s more than had been admitted before 9/11. If we don't make it 3 million, we're monsters? May we ask how many Muslims Khan's mystery Constitution requires -- or is that out of bounds unless we had a child who died in Iraq?
How many of those assisted our military forces and saved lives Ann? Or do you not want people to know that?
By the way. We know the rest of the real story. We’ve imported more Asians than anyone. They are TAKING OVER ANN. Forget the Muslims. Oh...wait…they aren’t the appropriate color to use this year as your fear stick. Moving on…
Apparently, sending out a victim to make their argument was the only option left for the "Make America Muslim!" crowd.
Apparently, sending out fictional G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H to make arguments that even some Trump supporters are shaking their heads at, is the only option left for the 'Make America Great Pundit of Nothing!’
That’s a true crime story by the way, you can see it on the ID Channel! I PROMISE YOU! IT’S BEAUTIFUL! BELIEVE ME!
After Trump somehow got the crazy idea that a presidential candidate was allowed to discuss government policies and proposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigration -- which, by the way, is perfectly constitutional -- the entire media and political class erupted in a sputtering rage.
Wait. Trump actually discussed government policies? When? Where! HOW!
I mean, let’s be honest here, his discussions so far were to build beautiful walls, make Mexico pay for them, ban Muslims from entering the country, then only some of them, deport 15 million illegals entirely, but then keep the good ones, but then they are all criminals, so he must have a rating system on what is the lesser of crimes, maybe sexual harassment is okay? But rape is out? Who knows...then, we must put Muslims in databases, have the cops patrol their neighborhoods and Mosques. Punish women that have abortions, but still fund Planned Parenthood. We are going to build the best of something, but he’s not sure what that something is on any given day. JOBS! And negotiate trade deals. Give nukes to Japan, nuke Iran, blow up Syria, Wrestle Putin on the WWE stage, muzzle the media and deport them to Antarctica (with Ann’s brain). Ban babies from crying. You get the picture,
I’ll let you sift through that and figure out what he actually said and what he didn’t. I’m not Ann saying that HE SAID THESE THINGS. It’s how I FEEL. I’m just talking G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H.
But I guarantee you one thing, mine is far less in that word salad than Trump’s.
And she mistakes sputtering in disbelief as rage. We are chortling baby.
By the way, I think this is just another Season of American Horror Story, set on a luxury cruise liner, where Trump is the Captain of the Ship, and he stole the nuke codes.
What do I know? I’m a Libertarian. We see no evil, hear no evil, and allegedly we all get naked and toss meth in the air, while Gary Johnson smokes and eats Pot! WHO KNEW! 🐒
Conscience of a Nation, Speaker Paul Ryan proclaimed: "That's not who we are." Jeb! Bush made the subtle and clever argument that Trump was "unhinged." Marco Rubio called any pause in Muslim immigration "offensive." ABC News' Jonathan Karl called Trump's plan "outrageous" -- which was way better than MSNBC, where Trump was compared to white supremacists and Nazis.
Ann, you even said that he’s unhinged. Trump wasn’t compared to those people. It’s the old adage, you are judged by the company you keep, or in this case, the company you consistently RETWEET! You must be a Nazi then too Ann! AS IF! Trigger baby, trigger hard.
Maybe Daddy Trump will give you a safe space at Mar Lago. Do it girl! Do it!
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Trump had "disqualifie(d)" himself from "serving as president" for suggesting any slowdown in Muslim immigration. Vice President Joe Biden -- tribune of blue-collar Americans everywhere! -- said that if Trump were the nominee, Hillary would "win in a walk."
Sure. I’ll buy that. See. I can compromise. 😀
Then it turned out Trump's Muslim ban was a huge hit with actual voters. Hillary, who promises to quadruple the number of Syrian "refugees" we bring in, is quite far from winning "in a walk."
A YUGE HIT with approx. 40% of the GOP’s voters. I bet if you polled the Democrats (psssttt there are a lot more of them than 15 million) you’d get 100% didn’t think so. And the other approx. 60% of GOP didn’t either. Common Core Math suits you Ann!
Purple People Eaters (why not, at this point, this is all ludicrous anyways)
I’m a one brained, orange tanned, tiny little fact eater..🎶🎶🎶
So the media and political class had no choice: They had to produce a victim to make their argument, in order to block any response. For their next trick, Democrats plan to produce a little girl whose parents were recently murdered to present their tax plan. (Better make sure they weren't killed by an illegal alien!)
Kinda like Trump turning JFK into a victim of Ted Cruz's Dad? Or wait, was he really related to John Wilkes Booth? I forget, there are so many conspiracy theories! We should just play Clue with it! And whatever the end result is, we stick with it. I call Col. Mustard, in the Kitchen, with the knife, killing Mr. Green! What say you Ann? Sound feasible? ;)
Does anyone know what Khan thinks of gays? How about miniskirts? Alcohol? Because I gather we're going to have to turn all our policies over to him, too. What have you sacrificed, Barney Frank??
Does anyone care what Khan thinks of gays? Hell, we can't even pin down your candidate's thoughts on that. Miniskirts? I'm sure Khan likes them, just like Trump does. Alcohol? Well probably not, but then again, neither does Trump, but I heard he makes a great wine! Or was it steaks? Water? I forget.
Muslim troops accounted for 0.2 percent of all U.S. troop deaths in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Southerners accounted for 38 percent of those killed in Iraq and 47 percent in Afghanistan.
And that matters how Ann? Those 0.2 percent are the brothers of the other 38 percent and 47 percent baby. To include my friends that died. Did you have friends that died out there Ann?
What does matter is that Capt. Khan saved Southern white lives baby. A MUSLIM saved white soldiers sweet cheeks. Unless you wore that !@%%%*+ uniform, and know our brotherhood, STOP! STOP! SAVE YOURSELF! STOP! STOP!
What has South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley "sacrificed" compared to the families of these men? How about Nikki put their flag back up?
What have you Ann? Same thing honey pie. Same thing.
The Confederate flag won't lead to thousands of dead and maimed Americans, as Muslim immigration does. The only danger posed by the Confederate flag is that media elites will hold the South in even greater contempt than they already do, assuming that's possible.
Really? Should we run the history of segregation due to that flag? Lynchings? Oh, how about that flag flew for many moons while other men, women and children were brutalized during slavery and many died under that flag, not defending it, but because of it. Before the war.
The flag doesn't matter. And since you brought that up, why?
The Khans said nothing about the Confederate Flag. The Khans didn’t start babbling about racism, white people, southern people, northern people. She needs to quit. I don’t even have a fictional story to parody on this. Maybe SNL can do it, I’m all out of stories. Space Aliens taking over Key West? I dunno. It’s all so G.I.B.B.E.R.I.S.H
But as long as they brought it up, if only people who lost children in our wars may discuss public policy, then only they should vote, not only on how many more Muslim immigrants this country needs, but on all government policies. What has Chuck Todd sacrificed? Have any current members of The New York Times editorial board ever lost a son in war? (Fighting on the American side.)
I think if we did baby, this country would be a much better place. But, I don't think you'd like the America that military veterans, military families and Gold Star parents would create. It doesn't really fit into your rhetoric, and it takes the wind out of everyone's sails.
For, those that willingly give their Constitutional rights up, to protect all that we hold dear, are more careful with it. Have more of a sense of things, than you do. That scares you doesn’t? The 'real' American patriots, who don’t see color, gender, religion, creed, fear in every corner.
The people that understand the Constitution in ways that you don’t. That know what real honor is, real sacrifice, really what Makes America Great.
Because, Ann, until you and Trump enjoy the favorable and trust ratings that WE do with the American People, and trust me, even Reagan hasn’t been able to hit our ratings, even during that unsavory Iraqi war, you don’t stand a chance against us. But keep attacking honey, every time you do, we take note.
Those of us that don’t live in the 40% black hole vortex of no common sense, that has lost all means of understanding life itself, are sitting back and watching y’all expose yourselves. And when you tank, and you will, we will be there for you to attack, rant at, blame, accuse and that’s okay.
We understand. We wouldn’t expect anything less from bitter winners that turned into bitter losers.
Maybe what your parents, and his parent should have done, was hold you accountable and not allowed you to believe that you are a winner, with your participation trophy.
I digress. I’m off to drink some decaf, you were amusing honey! Keep em coming!
Peace out. (boy am I glad I escaped to the LP)
My 16 year old son said he would sue my like Donald Trump gets sued, if I don’t tell you that the picture is of him.
His name is DJ Jazzy Abe, who wuvs Victoria. ❤
