Ding Dong the wicked wingnut is dead! Scratch another dangerous American Taliban off the most wanted list. And not just any wingnut Taleb either. The Big Daddy of the homophobe hordes. The monstrous Christian Ayatollah himself Jerry Falwell.
Woohoo! Allah Akbar! Praise the Lord! If I wasn't an atheist I might think that there is a god. And SHE is good.
``I shudder to think where the country would be right now if the religious right had not evolved,'' he said when he stepped down as Moral Majority president in 1987
I on the other hand weep for the America that might have been if Falwell and his theocratic thugs hadn't come along and poisoned its soul. Recruiting Republican voters...helping the criminal neocons seize power. By preaching hatred against gay people.
"Unfortunately, we will always remember him as a founder and leader of America's anti-gay industry, someone who exacerbated the nation's appalling response to the onslaught of the AIDS epidemic, someone who demonized and vilified us for political gain and someone who used religion to divide rather than unite our nation.''
Who knows how much damage his crazy bigotry caused. Who knows how many violent homophobes he inspired. How many gay lives were lost. The hands of that porky christofascist were slippery with gay blood.
Despite his mongrel hatemongering and his wacko views about how liberals, feminists and gay people were responsible for every bad thing including 911. And his demented jihad against Tinky Winky. The chickenshit MSM always treated him with kid gloves.
They solicited his opinion on everything. They made this Christian Taleb sound respectable. The idiot Wolf Blitzer was bragging tonight about how many times he'd had him on his show.
Even though everything he ever said sounded to me like this.
Oh yeah...I'm not mourning his death. I'm celebrating it. Just like they are in San Francisco.
Just like I celebrated the long delayed departure of that other Taliban leader last week.The bloodthirsty psychopath Mullah Dadullah.
He liked to make videos of himself cutting the throats of innocent people...or beheading them. He mutilated and murdered his opponents who he called infidels. He murdered gay people. He liked to throw the first stone at women sentenced to death for prostitution.
He was a bloodthirsty beast.
But the thing we need to remember is that if Jerry Falwell's Christian Taliban ever came to power they would do exactly the same thing. A religious fanatic is a religious fanatic. A Taleb is a Taleb.
But now the Ayatollah is dead. Ding dong. And so is the Mad Mullah. And what is there left to say?
Except of course....Two Taliban down.
So many more to go...
