fireclown: TheShavingofOccam123: Ah yes because using a target on an entire state is exactly the same as using cross-hairs on individual members of Congress from an opposing party

Are you really suggesting that the GOP meant the targeting imagery to mean "kill this individual"? With a straight face?


Are suggesting you don't know the difference between a bull's-eye and the cross-hairs of a scope used to aim a gun?

You posted a pic of states with bulls-eyes on them as equivalent to a pic of cross-hairs pointed at individual members of Congress. False equivalency.

And I see you ignored the part about the Republican party raffling off the same model gun that was used in the murders and shooting of Congressmember Gifford. As I said, I'm sure that was all a simple coincidence.

Are you suggesting you're just trolling because you can't actually argue anything?

BTW, if you look to the right of each blue bar in this thread you'll see a little circle with a slash through it. It's the new "ignore" button. Here, let me show you how it works. Enjoy your trolling. But you should work on your skills.

I love how everyone's referring to Death of a President as if it's a how-to film, or as if it advocated the death of GW Bush. The fact is the film was a hypothetical scenario which argued that if the President were assassinated, the government would have used the opportunity to further an anti-Middle Eastern narrative and pushed for expanded police and surveillance powers. Is that really such a controversial concept?

EWreckedSean: ongbok: EWreckedSean: FlashHarry: fredsnake: there was a libtard video game where you shot gopers so wtf is the difference?

already brought up and debunked - but keep farking that chicken!

/hint: the "libtard video game" wasn't produced by the democratic party.

I'm still confused why you think that point matters for something? A local county committee should be held to a higher standard for outrage?

Yes they should. They are still representing the GOP for that county.

And? County GOP representatives have the same first amendment rights to mock the president that the rest of us have.

Headso: all government money, talk about hypocrites...


Actually, current employment stats for Loudon County shows 17% of employees work for government, and 78% for private industry.

Now, I don't know how many of those private sector jobs are funded by government contracts, mind you...

hot, like my browser history for googling those

not to mention all the 'hang bush for war crimes'. never mind that saddam gassed his own population, some americans wanted to hang bush for water boarding (which was legal at the time)


Waterboarding was never legal you dipshiat. You fail at debating and reality.

EWreckedSean: fireclown: olddinosaur: But of course a violent, graphic video game where you blast Republicans, chop them up with a chain saw and bludgeon them with a baseball bat is "just good clean fun," right?

We're gonna need a link.

Really?


Yes. Farking really. You might be shocked to find that we don't have Fox News on a slow IV drip 24 hours a day. I am a news junkie and I missed this story altogether. Had to look it up. (new window)

Then I had to look up the developer, Starving Eyes Advergaming. They claimed a shiatload of clients, which I didn't buy. Had to do some MORE digging and voila. They were falsly claiming to be working with Nascar, for example. They have since removed this (new window) image from their site.

Nobody claiming this is "good clean fun". It's just you folks, trying to draw a false equivalence between a video game shock jock who probably has a series of lawsuits coming his way and ... Loudoun County GOP Chairman Mark Sell.

I saw this thread and thought it better summarized as the reverse. "A single solitary political party in the single solitary wealthiest county in America making a single solitary image of Obama with a hole in his head doesn't demonstrate anything. The dozens of times "liberals" who always function as a sort of hive mind, made a movie that explained how to kill Bush when he was president. And if you don't remember that video game where there were like zombie conservatives, then you are a bad American."

This thread is a poor representation of reality. Sadly.

CalvinMorallis: scruffynerfherder: The only ones allowed to be outraged are those who were also outraged when the movie about how to kill Bush came out. It's a farkin Halloween picture for fark sake...

FOR FARK SAKE!!!!

That movie, which has been cited two hundred times in this thread already, was condemned by ALL your favorite bogeyman groups, from high-ranking democratic officials, to big hollywood, to the liberal media!


The point is being missed. I for one SUPPORT that movie, in that under the first amendment they have a right to make it. Granted, it was a tasteless/tacky thing to do, but so be it. The same goes for the Obama pic.

SOMEBODY had to like that movie, or else it would not exist. Also, I don't exactly how much it was denounced outside of some politicians. As for this pic, to be fair, it us morbid, and is more "goulish" than the pic of Pelosi and the rest of the cartoon. Was that hole meant to be a bullet hole? Was it some subliminal message by racists? I PERSONALLY don't think so. I think mores being made if this than what is actually there.

Like the fact that

.

Well, I'll tell you what. The folks in Loudon County may not actually be republicans, but they sure as hell tend to vote for them.

Adjective:

1. Annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand.
2. Difficult to understand.

Synonyms:
dull - blunt - dense - slow-witted


Gee, according to that definition, I'm not the one being obtuse.

Major Premise: 3 cross-hairs on Arizona.

Minor Premise: 3 members of Congress in Arizona.

Conclusion: 3 cross-hairs on 3 members of Congress

Next you'll be telling me "don't retreat, reload" has nothing to do with firing a gun.

And speaking of guns, no troll in here has addressed the Republican party's raffling off of the same model of gun that was used to shoot Gifford and murder several people that day. Huh.

What the flying fark is this shiat?

A British film providing commentary on American foreign policy by creating a hypothetical situation in which there was an assassination and then extrapolating our responses to that assassination

Is comparable to

The chairman of the GOP in the wealthiest country in the United States announcing the GOP presence in a Halloween parade by creating a banner that showed the president as a zombie.

British is comparable to American?
Filmmaker is comparable to County Chairman of the Party?
Commentary on foreign policy is comparable to announcing participation in a parade?
Hypothetical Assassination is comparable to a depiction of the president as an undead creature of the night?

I'm not even going into some kind of virtue judgement of the two. But you can't be farking serious. Comparable? Like hell. The ONLY thing they have in common is that they both feature a US president. For farks sake... there's like, half a dozen example upthread that at least depicted Bush as a zombie! But you want to talk about a foreign film that actually depicted Bush in a positive light prior to his hypothetical assassination? Did you watch that shiat before you started running your mouth about it?

Both sides are bad. (Ignore the fact that "lipstick on a pig" got HUGE national coverage, and generated several FARK threads, including at least one with 1,000+ comments. Ignore the fact that Obama's lipstick comment was directed at McCain, and the GOP still turned it into "OMG, Obama's beating up a girl!") Remember, both sides are bad.

Even if the Obama comment got more national press, the President of the United States said it, versus an email by some nobody in redneck county Virginia. I would tend to hope more attention is paid to what the president says, even if outrage on both parts was utterly fake.

Still haven't read the thread, have you?

Wellon Dowd: People keep saying ths was done by some rednecks in a backwoods Virginia county. For what it is worth, Loudoun County is only 30 miles from DC and has the highest household income of any county in the United States. (new window)

No, it means you keep talking about how it's some random rednecks in Virginia that nobody's heard of, when it's actually from a rich county just outside of DC, which means these guys are actually fairly important in the political power structure. But please, more condescension.

Worth repeating. I consider it a promising sign that the GOP is no longer openly and actively pushing the country toward a violent civil war.

one0nine: At least they're not trying to justify or soft-pedal it- they know it's bullshiat and they didn't wait three days before saying so. So I offer a grudging but sincere "well done"... they're now collectively 1 for 593,321 but hey, it's progress.

Still haven't read the thread, have you?

Wellon Dowd: People keep saying ths was done by some rednecks in a backwoods Virginia county. For what it is worth, Loudoun County is only 30 miles from DC and has the highest household income of any county in the United States. (new window)

Sorry, I guess that means they shouldn't have done then right since they are not that poor? But please, more fake outrage.

No, it means you keep talking about how it's some random rednecks in Virginia that nobody's heard of, when it's actually from a rich county just outside of DC, which means these guys are actually fairly important in the political power structure. But please, more condescension.

Actually I already clarified you were right on that point, and asked you how exactly it matters if they were poor or wealthy people who sent this. I got no answer.

I just answered you. Unless you think that rich people who live just outside of DC are somehow not political movers and shakers, and therefore quantifiably different from random idiots with signs.


I'm not sure what is more sad, that you think some local committee are movers and shakers in the GOP because the county is near DC, or that you are still pathetically trying to be outraged about zombie Obama. Rage on Kid, rage on, like a zombie after brains. Lol.

Deucednuisance: TheShavingofOccam123: They raffled off the same model of gun used to shoot Gifford and murder several people.

Same manufacturer, different model.

Living on the border of Fairfax and Loudon Co.s, and actually knowing a few of these people, I can tell you that they do have political clout and lots of money. Fairfax and Loudon are where ALMOST ALL the DC movers and shakers live.
