This Week In Right-Wing Stupidity: The 5 Most Asinine Quotes Of The Week

Well, it’s that time again! The time of the week when Addicting Info recaps the right-wing’s stupidest quotes of the week. There was no shortage of dumbf*ckery, so grab a stiff drink (you’ll need to numb your brain) and enjoy!

5. Fox News thinks Planned Parenthood videos are worse than ISIS videos.

As you know, the right has gone crazy over the Planned Parenthood videos that “prove” the organization sells “baby parts” on the black market. It doesn’t matter that they have been debunked, because talking about them gets people all riled up. Fox News has capitalized on this lie, like so many before it, and have been devoting a lot of time to the story, but earlier this week Fox’s Eric Bolling got really crazy when he said this:

I watched these videos and you know I watched the beheading videos of ISIS, these videos of Planned Parenthood were far worse. They literally made me nauseous, don’t watch them.”

Yes, because fake videos are way more horrible than watching someone lose their lives in a slow, painful manner. Oh wait, no, ISIS videos are far worse than an edited smear campaign! What a dumbass.

4. Fox host complains that minorities are getting treated fairly.

Earlier this week on Fox’s Outnumbered the hosts discussed a recent police chief’s decision to put “In God We Trust” on police cruisers. The folks over at Fox are really angry that people are arguing that no government entity should advertise individuals’ religious beliefs. They don’t seem to understand the idea of separation of church and state. Host Ainsley Earhardt said something really stupid after Democratic strategist Julie Roginsky said we need to protect the rights of the minority (non-Christians):

What about the majority? I’m so tired of protecting the minority. What about the rest of the country — 77 percent!”

What? Actually, the founding fathers specifically designed the Constitution to protect the minority. They wanted to make sure that America did not become a theocracy, the very thing they fled. Fox News really should require everyone who works for them takes a history test.

3. If you are reading this, chances are that you’re a liberal and hate Christians so much that you want to kill them.

Republican nutjob, John McTernan, thinks that liberals hate Christians like Hitler hated the Jews:

For example, on gay pride day, there have been huge earthquakes. I’m talking about on the very day. Supreme court decisions, pro-abortion, in that hurricanes slamming in, droughts, and things like that. I believe it is God warning America, to stop the course, actually repent…. They hate us as much as the Nazis hated the Jews and they’re acting on it now. This is not live and let live, Chaplain, they want to destroy us.”

My yard has been flooded all week and I finally know who is to blame: the gays!

Secondly, I don’t see any liberals committing mass genocide, do you? The right is so crazy, they’ll say anything to make themselves look like they are being persecuted.

2. Mike Huckabee suggests he might do something really stupid to stop abortion.

So this happened when Mike Huckabee was on the campaign trail last week:

“…Huckabee was pressed to further explain how he would put an end to abortion. He replied, ‘All American citizens should be protected.’ When a reporter asked Huckabee if he intended to use the FBI or federal forces to ensure the safety of unborn babies, Huckabee wouldn’t rule it out. He answered, ‘We’ll see when I’m president.’

Thank God Huckabee doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of becoming president, because he clearly doesn’t understand how our government and laws work.

Finally, the stupidest quote is…….

1. Steve King thinks we can marry inanimate objects.

In Iowa last week, Steve King said we can all marry our  lawnmowers now that gay-marriage is legal; but this wasn’t the first time he has said it. Earlier this month he said the same thing:

I had a strong, Christian lawyer tell me yesterday that, under this decision that he has read, what it brings about is: It only requires one human being in this relationship—that you could marry your lawnmower with this decision. I think he’s right.”

Finally! I get to marry the love of my life: my lawnmower!

Seriously though, the marriage equality ruling was decided a month ago and nobody has married their pets, so King had to find something new to say. But really? A lawnmower? I think he needs to lay off the drugs.

Well, that’s all for this week! Check back next Sunday for a brand new installment of Right-Wing Stupidity!
