Tea Party Candidate Rick Barber Calls Conservative Christians to "Gather Your Armies" against President Obama

     Rick Barber, Christian and Republican/Tea Party candidate in Alabama's second district for the House of Representatives, just released a new commercial in which he rants to actors shabbily dressed as the founding fathers.  First, Barber calls for the impeachment of President Obama while a hand fidgets a gun.  Then, over drinks and pistols, he bitches about progressive income taxes and healthcare reform, after which an actor in a powdered wig, supposedly George Washington, calls for the god-fearing people of Alabama to (cue melodramatic bass voice) "gather your armies."

     What would Jesus do?  Would he know that Rick Barber is a Christian by his love or by his not-so-veiled threats of violence against the President of the United States?

     If anyone still thinks that this Tea Party rhetoric is just speech, let me share this.  My fianc矇 SHE's father, who is a lifelong Alabamian, staunch conservative Republican, fan of Bill O'Reilly, and good Christian, refers to President Obama as "that colored black n----r president."

     This revolting and unabashed racism, homophobia, and xenophobia of the Tea Party America are real.  For those of you in the Tea Party, who aren't violence-inciting frightened racists, you need to get control of your allies.

     Barber's seditious cries for violence against our democratically elected president and government must be addressed.

     For a discussion of treason and sedition in light of Barber's call for war against the U.S. government, see the Democratic Underground.

     Here's Keith Olbermann's take.

     Here's the Rick Barber commercial in its full seditious glory.

Rush Limbaugh and Sir Elton John's Big Fat Bigoted Wedding

     Rush Limbaugh just entered his fourth traditional marriage, this time with Kathryn Rogers.  Congratulations to both of you.  I hope your two or three years together will be full of Christian bliss.  The lovely couple met six years ago while Limbaugh was going through his third traditional divorce.

     In a strange twist of events, playing for an estimated $1 million at the reception was none other than Sir Elton John, hypocrite and sellout.  Elton serenaded the gay-friendly crowd, which according to CNN, included Karl Rove, Fred Thompson, Sean HannityRudy Giuliani, and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.  Birds of feather f*ck gay rights together.

     (PS. Sorry for the tardiness of this post.  I was quite ill the past week and missed some of the big stories.  I had to comment on this one, even if it's a week late.)

Gay Malawi Couple Breaks Up and One Seeks Traditional Heterosexual Marriage

     The story of the gay couple from Malawi that was convicted, sentenced to fourteen years in prison, and then pardoned after they held an engagement ceremony in December continues to grow more tragic.  After their release, fear of retribution and death threats drove one of the two to seek a "more acceptable" and "church-approved" alternative.

     The news that gay couple whose 14-year prison sentence for their love affair led to international condemnation, have split over a girl, excited some Malawians who thought this was the way to bury the issue of homosexual in the country.
     Steven Monjeza, 26, said he had left his partner, Tiwonge Chimbalanga, 20, because he had been coerced into the gay relationship and found a better match with a 24-year-old woman named Dorothy.  Zomba based businessman cum politician Sudi Adak Sulaiman ha for the past few days visited Monjeza at his home in Chirimba, Blantyre in an effort to encourage and give him some money in support of his [heterosexual] wedding plans.  According to Monjeza’s neighbors, Sulaimana in the company of reporters visited the house of Monjeza on Tuesday and found him drunk...
     When Nyasa Times tried to find out about Monjeza’s new sweet heart, it was discovered that she is a prostitute (hooker) who stays in a one roomed apartment behind one of the bars in Chirimba...
     Gay rights campaigners blame the couple’s breakup on fears of violent retribution. Monjeza’s uncle was reportedly determined to prevent them from getting back together after being released.  Chimbalanga was warned not to set foot in the village or they would “deal with him.”
     How sad.  In Malawi, it is better to drink one's self to death and marry a prostitute than to be with the one you love.  

     Of course, while legally gays can't be put in jail for being gay in the U.S., the psychological and religious pressure is the same for many homosexuals here.  I know closeted gays that have turned to drink and prostitutes rather than come out of the closet.  Praise traditional religious praxis.

Happy Holy Flag Day
