PreMortem: jehovahs witness protection: Liberals on Fark to defend her in 3, 2, 1


See, it's funny because a lot of conservatives think natural disasters are "controlled" by an invisible sky wizard. She was mocking their ignorance, not the death and destruction she had no knowledge of at the time.

No need to defend her, just pointing out the fallacy of this faux outrage.


he's just threadshiatting and playing the perpetual victim.  what conservative trolls do best.

Princess Ryans Knickers: The tornado is God's punishment for not allowing gay marriage!


This tornado is God's warning to the god damn red state voters that if you vote on Thursday to deny gay kids in Scouting, your ass will be raped.

No.  A handful of crazies that identify with the republican party because we can't stop them does not constitute "a lot".  In the same vein, hurricanes and earthquakes must really hate liberals.

mediablitz:  fark Glen Beck. He only gives a shiat because it was a "liberal". When he calls out Pat Robertson or Michelle Bachmann, I'll give him credit.

The difference being that Robertson and Bachmann are serious when they say "God is punishing this area because of the gays" or whatever. Winstead was lampooning them.

Esc7: Saying the tornado was "targeting" conservatives is lampooning people who paranoidly claim that the IRS and Obama are always targeting conservatives.


No it's lampooning religious nuts who believe God is targeting liberals with natural disasters.  It's still in poor taste.
 
2013-05-21 11:34:05 AM  
Good thing conservatives don't care about political correctness and therefore won't be outraged about a shiatty joke some Twitter person who hasn't been involved with the Daily Show for 15 years made.

See, teabaggers, the Daily show is making fun of the conservative tradition of blaming natural disasters on gay marriage. It's even more humorous that we need to explain it to you retards.

I thought the regular tards here were blaming it on people and their global warming ways.
 
2013-05-21 11:38:22 AM  
This is no more idiotic than the 72-year old they interviewed a 1.5 blocks from the elementary school that claimed he was alive because God was watching over him and his wife. If there were a God, I would have expected the old man to be struck down right then.

mediablitz: JimStarkBand: I don't get to say this often:

Classy move, Glen Beck.  Good job.

It was a tasteless joke that, had this been a more 'commonplace' overhyped natural disaster would have been hysterical 24 hours later.  However, it wasn't 24 hours later, and it wasn't a typical tornado.  I didn't like when NJ got mocked for getting hurricaned, I didn't like those who tried to say God hates liberals for it, and I don't like that tweet.  But goddamnit (this time) Glen Beck is on the right side, IMO.  Bad bad joke that was made too soon, and was a mistake.

Which is why she very quickly apologized. A sincere apology.

fark Glen Beck. He only gives a shiat because it was a "liberal". When he calls out Pat Robertson or Michelle Bachmann, I'll give him credit.


And instead oftaking advantage of a chance to rake her over the coals, he stood up and asked people to back off.

It was ITFA.

'Leave lizz winstead alone,' tweeted notorious conservative commentator Glen Beck on Monday night. 'Clearly bad joke. How many of us has made a joke we wished we could take back?She has to feel awful.#castfirststone.'
 I doubt it was just conservatives raising ire, but he spoke out against a backlash that would have in some ways benefited him.

Did you... think he 'called out' Lizz Winstead?

I don't see any reason to think she was making a joke about what some yahoo fundie said. Pretty clear she's referring to Republican claims that BO ordered the IRS to go after his enemies.

1) Lizz hasn't worked for DS in many years.  DS didn't target that tradition at all.  She wasn't speaking for DS, or The Jews, or The Illuminati, or whoever else.  She was speaking for Lizz.

2) Even she agreed (after finding out about the incredible damage and devastation) that this joke was in poor taste.  Had she been aware of HOW bad this was, she wouldn't have said it.

3) You don't need to explain it to anyone.  Clearly you don't understand what they argument is about.

PS - Totally not a teabagger.  Just someone with, ya know, decency.
PPS - Had this not been such a disaster, I might have even found the joke funny.
PPPS - go make me a sammich, chef.

Yes, I would say she's definitely the worst person to ever live.

diaphoresis: DarwiOdrade: diaphoresis: DarwiOdrade: RedT: FFS you don't Tweet something like that, in the face of this horrible tragedy!

/ you post it on Fark
/amirite?

That's the point - she tweeted it before it was known just how horrible a tragedy it was. Once the extent of the damage was clear, she apologized.

Open mouth, insert foot. Tornados are a joke to anyone who's never seen the destruction it brings. Some things you just don't joke about...

Really? Because if you google "tornado jokes" I think you'll find lots of jokes no one cares about. Lizz apologized and is taking her lumps, but the conservative derposphere is going full potato with this - it's the conservative victim mentality, pure and simple.

yes.. really.  It's as bad as  "Quit making 9/11 jokes.. it's just plane wrong".  I don't see anything humorous about that either.



<snerk>

But then again, I painted the NYC skyline in silhouette on my friend's wall and sharpied a plane in an awful spot. We lol'd and then painted over it.

She's not even defending herself. Why would anyone else? That's what you do not get. Liberals here on fark do not defend anything a liberal says blindly. We do however accept honest apologies and move on.l

"'Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained. Beyond sorry. #LetMeHaveIt' shetweeted about three and a half hours after her original joke.

Wouldn't it be awesome for a big tornado to hit Chicago?

I'm sorry.


Eh, that's not out of character for you, we already know you're OK with volcanos in LA. So your attempt at being shocking and trolling kind of falls flat.

verbaltoxin: Rwa2play: zeroman987: Pants full of macaroni!!: Bloody William: Obama, because he worked in Chicago and was in politics there, made conservatives obsess over "Chicago-style politics" and paint the entire city as something out of Sin City with unions. It's another phrase they don't understand or think about, just throw it out like it's a magic word to hex liberals.

In all fairness, they've hated Chicago long before Obama emerged from it.  Mayor Daley and all that.

They hate Chicago because it is the city is where the best and brightest people that want to stay in the Midwest go. They are pissed that not only are their kids becoming libruls, but that they are living with ethnic and racial minorities and the gheys. They are also pissed its happening in their own backyard and not on the coasts, which would be easier to ignore.

The people in downstate illinois hate chicago because chicago supports the rest of the state and they resent it. The only people that pay their keep downstate are the professors and the farmers. The rest of the state is pretty much a bunch of out of work factory workers that are on disability or addicted to drugs, or both. Say what you will about chicago, but at least it isn't Illitucky.

Can say that about NYC and LA/SoCal as well.

Or most rural areas. The small town is dying out. There are no jobs, no industries, and no work. Most people leave, some are too old and stay, and others are too stubborn to leave and make do with what's left.

It's been a while since I read about it, but during one of the last Kansas threads we had, I read well, this.

Kansas alone, there are more than 6,000 [27] (ghost towns) according to one Kansas historian, Daniel C. Fitzgerald.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ghost_towns_in_Kansas


And yet, they voted for people like Brownback.

no, it's not a matter of forgetting about anything but the claims of Pat Robertson and company in the past were probably not on her mind when she made a CLEAR reference to an ongoing topic in the current news cycle

In fact, if she were going for a Robertson "joke" it would have been even more crass than what it obviously was - an attempt to make a joke about the IRS situation
