Why Do Presbyterians Hate America?
Serolf Divad’s comment got me thinking about the various sources of wingnut welfare, and that made me think back to one of my favorite wingnuts, Brigitte Gabriel. She’s not much of a wingnut – no “fellowship” at AEI or Hudson – but she’s all over Fox News and writes for The American Thinker. Bulk purchases of her books by conservative organizations likely contribute to her wingnut welfare total.
I thought I’d repost a little something I wrote about her back in June 2006. Vintage wingnuttery, if you will. After the jump you’ll see why she’s so special to me.
As you also know, we just love us some American Thinker … it’s a far-right website that reliably provides huge steaming helpings of wingnuttery and bad writing! Sure enough, there’s plenty to choose from today, but we focus on a little attack on Presbyterians by one Brigitte Gabriel, who thinks evil Presbyterians are giving aid ‘n comfort ‘n stuff to the enemy – specifially, Hezbollah and Hamas. Let’s dive right in:…
Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Huzballah [sic], Islamic Brotherhood, once only associated with the Arab/Israeli conflict, are now identified by intelligence services worldwide as terrorist organizations operating in the West. Their goal is to destroy our world in an Islamic Jihad, forcing those who survive to be Dhimmi- subjugated and despised ones.
And holy shit Batman – not only is “Jihad” capitalized, they called us Dhimmis! Better keep reading:
Sadly there are organizations who have lost their conscious, their judgment between good and evil, and chose to work, support and even defend these forces of evil and intolerance allying themselves with killers. One group is the Presbyterian Church USA, or PCUSA. [sic]
Hmmm … unconscious Presbyterians. This is getting serious:
In the last few years the PCUSA leadership befriended Husballah [look, another new spelling!], one of the world’s most lethal terrorist organizations solely responsible for killing Americans in Beirut in 1983 when a truck bomb blew up the Marine barracks killing over 241 soldiers and civilians.
Solely responsible? Wow, they’re finally sure who did that bombing! – glad that’s cleared up:
By considering divestment [from Israel], the PCUSA has also become the defender and champion of Palestinian suicide bombers headed by the terror group Hamas an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Authorities estimate Hamas has sleeper terrorist cells in over 40 states in America plotting to commit terrorist attacks on Americans. The Hamas charter declares that the Rotary Clubs, Masons, Lions Clubs, and B’nai B’rith are “destructive espionage organizations that are spread around the world in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests.”
The leadership’s excuse for supporting these terrorist organizations and calling on divesting from companies doing business with Israel is the security barrier that Israel built to protect its citizens from repeated barbarous attacks. These barbarians penetrate Israel without conscious nor humanity in order to maim and kill random Israelis. [sic, and sic again]
More unconscious bad people, and damn those Presbyterians for holding the gates open for barbarians!
PCUSA members should stand for coexistence in peace not a coexistence of hate and aggression towards Israel whose Jewish religion was the wellspring from which Christianty sprang.
Spring? Sprang? Head … spinning … and wait, didn’t Islam come from that there feller Abraham too?
Israel is the only beacon of democracy in the Middle East.
What? Iraq’s gone Commie? We spend an awful lot of money to set them up with a fully-functioning Democracy, and this is the thanks we get?
Challenge your leadership to drop divestment and ‘flee unrighteousness” and follow the values Christ taught when he said “Love your neighbor.”
Unless your neighbors are A-rabs.
OK – need a big finish … (scrape bottom of barrel, invert, repeat):
Reclaim your conscious and rescind this evil in your midst.
Yeah … get up off the floor you Presbyterians!
