The Republican Party: Because we need more villains.
 
2014-01-14 04:22:20 PM  
He hit on all the big points, so he knows his audience. I'm just surprised he didn't mention The War of Northern Aggression.

That face deserves a punch.

I think we just hit a solid vein of derp in the mine. Somebody get the blasting powder before the canary snuffs it.

I will say that I'm tired of North Korean villains. Between Olympus Has Fallen and the new Red Dawn, I got all North Korean-out. I just hope Russia steps up its game and we can go back to Cold War mode. They were the best villains out there.

McDaniel also called the Democratic party "a party of sex on demand"

we call that an orgy
 
2014-01-14 05:40:49 PM  
This man has clearly never watcher either of the NCIS shows (specifically LA).  Nearly every episode involves some middle eastern or African Muslim trying to kill everyone in LA.  It's a damn rarity when it isn't.

They'll go out of their way to find some Russian white guy that's just nuts, and he's the terrorist, which I've never seen that.

Really?

That's why dems are seen as fun.
 
2014-01-14 08:52:03 PM  
Well duh. Hollywood is liberal, and all liberals are muslim atheist socialist facists, so of course there are no Muslim move villians.

They need some competition considering the Christian movie villains are in documentaries

Digital Age won't let them get away with any more, Trent Lott taught them that.  They just keep it to backroom talks and FW:FW:FW:FW e-mails.
 
2014-01-14 08:56:08 PM  
Because they're not portrayed that enough in real life? I'm sick of this BS.

Yeah, NCIS is slightly racist.

Branching out a little, the CoD games have run pretty much the gamut of racially themed enemies for 'Murika to obliterate.
 
2014-01-14 09:00:24 PM  
It's because Muslim terrorists make for a boring enemy. I mean, the Russians, the Chinese, the Norks, the Nazis, they are actual countries that we could fictionally fight. They actually have a possibility of paratrooping into the USA and trying to take over. If you had a movie where al-Queda was paratrooping into the USA, you'd get laughed out of the theater! Muslim terrorists frankly rode the short camel to school. They can't even blow up a building without killing themselves. Even our retarded hillbilly terrorists have mastered the concept of not blowing yourself up. They just aren't good action movie villains.

I realize that many Chechens would probably take offense to being called Russians, but since I seriously doubt that this candidate knows or cares about that distinction, it does make for a rather odd statement in light of the largest, most recent terrorist attack on US soil.

Yeah....I wonder if he's never seen any of the multiple movies in the last 5 years that has a "Chechen" terrorist. Though, a Chechen would be SUPREMELY pissed if you called him a Russian, they technically are.....and they're usually whiteys. Hell, those Chechen terrorists in the movies usually are going to be a Muslim. Yeah, they aren't wearing a towel on their head and they aren't brown, but "Muslim" isn't a race.
 
2014-01-14 09:07:29 PM  
Just another racist piece of shiat.

Oh wait, we've already determined he's a republican.
 
2014-01-14 09:08:16 PM  
I really did enjoy all the TV shows/movies that this terrorist was on in the 2000's decade

Wow, just wow, this guy sounds like the drunken old guy in some hick bar somewhere, not a legitimate candidate for national office.  The Obama Osama think was bad enough, but this sentence is so blatant that it doesn't even qualify as a dogwhistle
"The reason Canada is breaking out with brand new gun violence has nothing to do with the United States and guns," McDaniel said. "It has everything to do with a culture that is morally bankrupt. What kind of culture is that? It's called hip-hop."

Oh wow, I didn't know that hip-hop gun violence in Canada is now a GOP talking point.

Did I miss a memo about it becoming the 90's again?
 
2014-01-14 09:16:34 PM  
So Muslims need to be characterized as villains more, and "hip-hop culture" is morally bankrupt and destroying the country.  But don't you dare call him racist.

We can do more damage to our own critical infrastructure just being our normal, stupid selves. Muslim terrorists are useless little b*tches

2014-01-14 09:40:59 PM  
I don't always go on a tirade about how the GOP has turned into the biggest, foulest, stankest pile of sh*t this side of New Jersey, but when I do, it's with the Kos Rant.

Murdering, Lying, Thieving, Rat-F*** Republican Pieces of Sub-Amphibian Sh**...

...mendacious, death-loving, frothing, lamprey-mouthed, inhuman, abominable, atrocious, verminous, rapacious, sadistic, bullying, invasive, grasping, psychopathic, twisted, warped, animalistic, belly-crawling, mouth-breathing, illiterate, innumerate, know-nothing, imbecilic, sheep-raping, horror movie extras masturbating into wads of money while fantasizing about war collateral damage...(inhale)...puppy-torturing, vacuous, mindless, nihilistic, evil, diseased, soulless, morally bankrupt, greedy, insecure, envious, kleptomaniac charnel-house mascots stewing in universal hatred for all life...(inhale)...toxic, ugly, bestial, humorless, loveless, compassionless, demonic human-shaped ruins forever slouching toward Bethlehem in search of some fresh nightmare to wreak on the defenseless via other people's money and heroism...(inhale)...Satanic monkey-shiat-throwing, cowardly, chickenhawkish, parasitic, baby's-candy-stealing, wife-beating, minority-purging, syphilitic Confederate poltergeists with erectile dysfunction...

...perverse, prurient, crocodile-eyed, necrophiliac mass-producers of human misery and gleeful destroyers of truth, justice, and the American way...sepulchre-hearted human deserts walking the Earth only to look for more victims...silly, stupid, ignorant bastards proud of every good thing they've never done, every person they've never been considerate toward, every fact they've never learned and will never acknowledge, and every virtue they will never possess or even attempt to comprehend...preternaturally drunken, bleary-eyed, zombie-like, empty vessels who wander aimlessly until given instruction by their masters...unthinking, unquestioning, unfeeling diabolus ex machina mockeries of the human condition, perpetually acting out a burlesque of the basest and least interesting psychological dysfunctions...

...face-chewing, self-devouring, medieval barbarian museum dioramas and depraved Nazi homunculi preserved in formaldehyde to frighten children...sick, ominous, loathsome,  Nosferatu-impersonating Gollum-acolytes feasting on the flesh of our society while complaining about its taste...tax-evading, sommelier-abusing, election-buying, yacht-aficionado hemmorhoids flying flags of convenience and berating their six-year-old Chinese employees for requesting bathroom breaks...

Republicans, you vile, repulsive, scum.  You're not leading this country.  You're not contributing to this country.  You're not even part of this country.  You are the maggot-ridden rot that arises in this country's damaged flesh; you are the vultures constantly picking at us to see if we're weak enough yet to become your next meal; you create problems where none would otherwise exist, just to further weaken America and quicken your own insatiable appetites; you are garbage, and you are traitors.  And you are not welcome in this country anymore.

OK, fair enough.  It's the world's second-largest religion, it  does seem like when a random character's religion comes up there should be about a 20% chance it's muslim.

And 30% chance it's Christian and about 15% each for atheist/secular and hindu.

Might I recommend rolling a D20 for it?

1-6 Christian
7-10 Muslim
11-13 Hindu
14-16 Atheist
17 Buddhist
18 Taoist/Confuscian
19-20 Pick the coolest-sounding religion you can find on Wikipedia in 30 minutes


... wow, that started as a joke, but it actually seems more and more like a genuinely good idea.  I would laugh  forever if they did this for the next Die Hard and it was revealed that John McClain is Hindu but his wife is Muslim and that's the source of all their marital troubles.

Do it, Hollywood.  Stop this "the characters are whatever the writers are" and assign religions by D&D rules whenever it's not specifically plot-relevant.  It will be  awesome.

2014-01-14 09:42:52 PM  
China would be the only worthy movie villain for a guns blazing and bombs dropping movie, but we want to sell movies to China, so that doesn't really pan out. My preference for terrorist movies runs as such though: Germans first, a good British Bond villain, then faceless jihadis last. They never give the Muslim villain any depth or character. It's all death to America all the time.

Honorable mention to the terrorists in Toy Soldiers, who were Columbian, I think.

Hey, I just have a random unrelated question, and I wonder if any farkers can educate me. Do the any of the South Korean cities near the DMZ have emergency guidelines for the Best Koreans launching whatever nasties they have on the line at them? You know, like pamphlets advising people what to do in an air raid, or telling people to pack a workplace emergency kit. How would you increase your chances of surviving an air raid, especially in a skyscraper? I'd imagine you'd try to find an interior room, or a stairwell. I mean, it wouldn't protect you from a direct hit on your building, but you'd get some cover from flying chunks of rubble. Is any of that provided?

20 years ago I read the autobiography of the late Doug "Kudzu" Marlette. He got an irate caller one day at the paper demanding to know why the mugger in one of his cartoons wasn't black. He didn't use the word "black."

Those idiots are now running the Republican party. Hope you're proud, guys.

Seoul specifically has large numbers of bomb shelters built throughout the city, and there are drills every so often practicing evacuating into them
