Ah, yes, Newsbusters. Cherry-picking one line out of context, and presenting it as if the host "hates America". Read the full comment she made, and it isn't an indictment of Obamacare (as Newsbusters concludes at the end of the article), but is actually an indictment of the system without Obamacare.

Of course, if Free Republic were covering this story, they would have twisted it to mean she wanted to take a dump on the flag, so I guess this article isn't as bad as it could be.

And in a bit of a crying fit, I screamed out I hate this G**-damned country! How can I live in a place that lets people go broke because they get sick?!

That's quite a reach there, News Busters. You'll strain something if you keep it up.

republicans are becoming so moronic - almost to the point of evolving into a lesser subspecies, if you will - that when they think they're being clever, they're actually just being farking stupid.

It's not so much today's bucketful of stupid that bothers me, it's the fact we'll be seeing this story cited for the next ten years as "proof" everyone not getting a photo of Rupert Murdoch raping a reindeer in their Christmas card wants America to be handed over to Islamic Gay Soviet Sino-Jihad.

News Busters funded a few shows so they could write this article.

It isn't. Went off the air in January 2010, according to the article. This lady is a former AA host.

Jebus. So, they're really, really digging for something now.

I feel kind of embarrassed for people who read News Busters seriously. They have to live in one hell of a terrifying world.

I can imagine. All those God-hating, Socialist, illegal immigrant supporting, baby killing, tax-&-spend, anti-American, flag burning, military hating, Gay-loving Liberals out there just waiting to take our guns and force affordable health care on everyone... Gosh, there could be one of Them behind every blade of grass! In fact, they could be anyone. It's like the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", only with Hippies.

Came to see how far Newsbusters twisted the words and took them out of context. Left satisfied.

/Also thought Air America was off the air.
 
2012-07-06 09:08:11 AM
I love how members of the online punditocracy take it as a given that people understand what they're even talking about.

As if there are actually people out there who will react to this with "OMG! RadioOrNot.com host Nicole Sandler said what?!?!"

instead of

"Who the f*ck is Nicole Sandler? Is that Adam Sandler's sister?"

It's just Fark's core message: Both sides are bad, so here's a dozen links to crazy far-right nonsense.

They think that because they link to Huffington Post, that 'balances' it. There's a slight difference, however: The Huffington Post has an institutional bias, but the writers at NewsBusters should be institutionalized.

I don't believe it ever was a thing, even when it was a thing.

Last I checked, conservatives aren't whining about how much they hate America because of that gosh-darn Supreme Court decision on Obamacare.

Author must not have checked at FreeRepublic, FoxNews, AmericanThinker, NationalReview, WND, or the comments from his own web site at any time in the last week.
 
2012-07-06 09:38:26 AM
I like how the author is criticizing these radio hosts for being simple minded extremists blinded by their own ideology, then says:

"Heck, Sandler hates the nation as a whole, not just its venerated secular hymn and most selfless warriors."
 
2012-07-06 09:39:20 AM
So even if Newsbusters proves that this radio personality "hates" America, what does it prove? Plenty of people "hate" this country. Hell, if not for my family and other loved ones, I ain't exactly married to the place either.
 
2012-07-06 09:39:46 AM
I'm only showing up in this thread long enough to say the mods can suck it for greenlighting this troll-baiting garbage.
 
2012-07-06 09:40:13 AM
If liberals actually hated America, they'd vote Republican.
 
2012-07-06 09:40:34 AM
Let the hate flow through you. Use it's power to fuel your ambitions.

uhhh no, he is going broke because he hasn't had a job since January 2010.

he whines about not going to a doctor since he doesn't want to pay the deductible...does 0bamacare have no deductibles?

How's that 0bama economy working out for you?

"Last I checked, conservatives aren't whining about how much they hate America because of that gosh-darn Supreme Court decision on Obamacare."


Uhh... ok. (1) You must have not "checked" very well, becausethat's flatly untrue.

And (2), conservatives just accuse the Supreme Court of being "anti-american" or "unamerican" because it upheld a law that doesn't jive with their simple-minded vision of what is "American."

Here's a hint - anything that helps the GOP and hurts the Dems is "American"

Just as the founding fathers intended.
 
2012-07-06 09:42:25 AM
Yeah, the far right doesn't hate this country, they just hate the laws that still allow for:
women's rights, public works projects,
any public health care,
public education,
basic science,
freedom of religion that isn't their own,
any religion that isn't their own,
any candidate they didn't vote for,
any voter they don't like,
clean air, clean water, clean land...

That's because he was busy fellating his readers over at StormFront. Then again the Venn diagram of readers/followers/fans of StormFront, FreeRepublic, FoxNews, AmericanThinker, NationalReview, and WND is a perfect circle.

your blog sucks submitter
 
2012-07-06 09:43:14 AM
Greening an article gives the website hundreds, if not thousands, of more page views, right? What if they keep manufacturing this kind of destructive political horse manure because it's generating more revenue, in part thanks to Fark? Isn't that a legitimate moral issue that Drew* would have to consider at some point?

*Peace be upon him.

You say that now, but after that reindeer gets cornholed it's given a good home where conservatives come from miles around to see it, asking it to bless their family for the coming year.

I can only assume it is going well since you have now gone to using "0" in every single Obama reference. That many zeroes has GOT to be an indication of rising paychecks.

Well, out of context for the headlines, at least the author presented the full quote. But Subby should feel bad.
