He's going to pull that stick out of his arse and start whacking hippies with it in no time.

Thank you, submitter. That was pretty funny. I especially liked:

in the context of the flower children's religious zealotry

belief that America's armed forces are neo-Nazi stormtroopers who delight in burning babies

Their BAWL (Buddha-Allah-Wicca-Lenin) is better than some old Judeo-Christian God

Wow, just, wow.

And for the second time today I can call someone a whackadoo nutjobber, only this time I mean it.

Occasionally, I think that people actually believe this garbage but I hate to think my species is so farking simple-minded.

This guy is completely idiotic:
Must we surrender our country to our enemies because our weapons are too terrible to use?

Whose life is more important: the 12-year-old Iraqi firing an Uzi or a soldier from Kentucky?

Which is more sacred: a mosque hiding a weapons cache or a plane of tourists?


Double you tee eff?

1) Yes, nukes are too terrible to use. They ARE. Yes they ARE, artard!

2) Children do not deserve to die more than a solider. Ever. You sick bastard.

3) Innocent civilians are still innocent civilians, even if you are a self-centered closet homo who's thingeh points WAY to the right.

Righteous Indignation: Not yours

If you think this is bad, you should peruse the comments on just about any Herald-Leader article. What gets me is where are these people? I live here and think we are a progressive community until I read the guest editorials and comments in the newspaper. Maybe Lexington is bipolar? Afterall we just elected a gay-basher as mayor and a gay as vice-mayor. Should be fun.

Sounds to me like you're a hippie.

Nice to see Kentucky is still bringing the crazy.

as a citizen of the commonwealth of kentucky, it's asshats like this that make us all look like backward hicks that don't know their ass from a hole in the wall.

Good: Their Pot. G-13 all the way.
Funny: Accent, wtf are they saying and is it really English?
Sad: Their sheer stupidity and backwardness.

Its a womans:
E-mail her

From my experience, the women are the worst in KY. I remember a friends wife telling me I should move to France when I said there were no WMDs in Iraq (pre-war)

Cowabunga dude!

I especially liked how he didn't even attempt to avoid a strawman argument and went straight for the throat. That's the mark of our fine people from KY.

KY doesn't constitute the deep south.
Also, stfu. You clearly don't know shiat about the south. Seriously, eff you.
 
2006-11-20 09:02:50 PM  
I like this line:

Marxism doesn't work. Love is not all you need. Western culture is worth defending because it protects freedom, tolerance and the greatest material good for the greatest number.

Material goods distributed among the masses? That kind of sounds like, oh, I don't know, maybe socialism aka Marxism?
 
2006-11-20 09:06:06 PM  
Agreed, mryoop789.

and, if the south had succeeded in seceeding, we'd probably just have to deal with them nuking MA bc of all teh ghey (marriages) there.
 
2006-11-20 09:07:20 PM  
That person must have stick shoved up his arse and his head buried under sand to think all lefties want communism. Most of us know it doesn't work in practice.

And apparently he doesn't realize that what he just wrote shows he is an intolerant asshole.
 
2006-11-20 09:07:56 PM  
It works like this:

Cut off the welfare and the hippie movement will dry up and starve... they will have to get jobs, earn a living, pay rent, etc.

Those who cannot adapt, will fulfill the adage of the 'survival of the fittest...'

Because lazy, leftwing, drug-sucking, hairy, unwashed, maggot infested losers do not get far in life...


Cutting off the 'free ride' will solve the Hippie Problem... they will grow up or die...
 
2006-11-20 09:09:29 PM  
I think we found the Farker who wrote TFA...

Then you'll cut off welfare to the god fearing rednecks who life off walware (trust me, I grew up in Kentucky. You don't see many hippies in Kentucky).

Then again, you don't see many hippies anywhere. It's still quite the boogie man for the far right.
 
2006-11-20 09:12:18 PM  
Sorry. I shouldn't lash out like that, but I get a little tired of the gross generalizations that some people like to make about the south. Are you dumb enough to think that 99% of the U.S. ISN'T completely homogenized? You go outside the cities, and sure, there are slack jawed yokels to be found, but nine times out of ten in my experience you find kind, decent people where ever you go in this country... unless you go to ... oh, I don't know ... some city in the northeast U.S. Yeah, now I'm generalizing. How do you like it?

I was going to point out all the flaws in ericjohnson's argument, but then I realized it was ericjohnson

Weeeeak. EJ0 is starting to slip lately. Trolling ain't easy, god knows, but anyone with half a brain can pull it off fairly well on a divisive issue like this. But EJ just had to go over the top and blow it - everyone knows hippies became rich yuppies, not "welfare bums".

Thus it is confirmed. EJ0 = lousy troll, now and always. Ignore.
 
2006-11-20 09:18:06 PM  
meanwhile, Kentucky is actually ruining the country
 
2006-11-20 09:18:23 PM  
Hoooooooooookay. Hm. You know, I was on the Berkeley campus a few weeks ago, and even there, I didn't see many probable hippies.
 
2006-11-20 09:18:29 PM  
and it looks like EJ0 endorses evolution and Darwinism too!
 
2006-11-20 09:19:08 PM  
I think ejzero is a hippy.
 
2006-11-20 09:19:22 PM  
Wait, what? ^^

That "Wait, what?" was for EricJ0, by the way.

How do you hide money from a hippie?

Put it under the soap!

/GWAR
 
2006-11-20 09:23:00 PM  
I thought it was getting dark in here, but it's just the enourmous straw man blocking out the light.
 
2006-11-20 09:24:50 PM  
And what about that Abe Lincoln guy trying to free the slaves? How are the big plantation owners supposed to make money now? And FDR starting that whole "social security" government hand out thing? And don't EVEN get me started on this Jesus and his whole "love thy enemy" crap....
 
2006-11-20 09:29:02 PM  
Honestly, when was the last time Anyone saw a filthy hippy with a real job? Not selling flowers on a corner... not chalking the sidewalk for coins... hell, Charles Manson was a hippy and look what he did... yeesh.

No thanks. Hippies need a crew cut and a few months at Marine Corp. Boot Camp to straighten their asses out.
 
2006-11-20 09:34:41 PM  
ericjohnson0:- Is your calendar broken?
 
2006-11-20 09:37:16 PM  
I'm 35 and I can't remember ever seeing a hippy except on TV and Halloween.

Shhh, quiet! You're ruining someone's boogyman.
