Now I feel better already. Sarah Palin speaking about common sense and sanity just inspires my confidence in America. And this "return to fiscal sanity" that she predicts should just make everyone's day! After all, taking America back to the Bush era is a real positive change!

After using her Facebook page to endorse candidates, speak out on issues and encourage her followers to vote in Tuesday's elections, Sarah Palin updated the page last night to call Election Day 2009 "a victory for common sense and fiscal sanity."

The former Alaska governor congratulated Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell, the Republicans who won the top jobs in New Jersey and Virginia, as well as Kim Guadagno, the first woman to become lieutenant governor of the Garden State.

"Of course, the real victors in this election are the ordinary men and women who voted for positive change and a return to fiscal sanity. Your voices have been heard," she wrote to her supporters...MORE

But the real prize for wingnuttery HAS to be awarded to Pat Boone who has gone from writing Love Letters in the Sand to writing Hate Articles in the Bog. This comes from Dave Neiwert over at Crooks and Liars:

Well, we've known for some time that Pat Boone has gone wingnutty, but his latest column for the wingnutty WorldNetDaily is one of the most vile pieces of eliminationist rhetoric to come down the pike in awhile:

In time, it seems to happen to all older houses, no matter how well tended they may be.

All manner of parasites, vermin, roaches, rats, worms and termites find their way into the building. Long before they're detected, they infiltrate the walls, the floors, the roofs – and then chew their way into the structure, the supporting beams and the very foundation of the house itself. Silently, surreptitiously, whole communities of invaders make places for themselves, hidden but thriving, totally unknown by the homeowner

Then, in time, tell-tale signs are seen. Little droppings, discolored trails, proliferating piles of residue appear in corners, on tabletops, little hanging sacs from ceilings – alarming evidence that the grand old dwelling has been invaded. Decidedly unwelcome creatures have made this place their home, and by their very existence will eventually destroy the house and bring it to ruin.

What can be done, when you learn that your house has already been invaded?

Well, the tried and true remedy is tenting.

Experts come in, actually envelope the whole dwelling in a giant tent – and send a very powerful fumigant, lethal to the varmints and unwelcome creatures, into every nook and cranny of the house. Done thoroughly, every last destructive insect or rodent is sent to varmint hell – and in a day or two, the grand house is habitable again.

I believe – figuratively, but in a very real way – we need to tent the White House!

For reasons only he can explain, the current occupant has purposely brought a whole flock of social and political voracious varmints with him into our House. He doesn't own it; he hasn't even rented it; we the people have simply given him the keys and invited him to live there for four years, making it convenient to serve us better, to carry out our expressed wishes for our country.

To the dismay of millions of us, this occupant seems to think we need an emperor. Even though all polls show that the majority of Americans don't want a whole new government-run health-care system, detest the trillions of dollars in un-payable debt he has foisted on us, question the whole "global warming" scare and disagree with him on many other issues, he boldly announces: "We're going to fundamentally transform America!" And he makes it clear that he is going to cram things down our throats whether we want them or not.

Boone then launches into a tirade based almost entirely on the Glenn Beck program (with a dash of Sean Hannity thrown in for good measure): A laundry list of the supposed Marxist radicals who have "infested" the White House, from Van Jones to Kevin Jennings. If you watch Fox,
all this is familiar territory.

But what's disturbing about all this is that Boone seems to want the White House "fumigated" right now -- though he's vague on the details of just how we do that. What matters is the vile "varmints" Obama has let into his administration:

No, he wants people who think like this, in order to "radically transform America," as he has pledged.

And they will do just that, drastically … unless we act, decisively and powerfully. Our White House is being eaten away from within. We urgently need to throw a "tent" of public remonstration and outcry over that hallowed abode, to cause them to quake and hunker down inside. And then treat the invaders, the alien rodents, to massive voter gas – the most lethal antidote to would-be tyrants and usurpers.

We must clean house – starting with our own White House.

Tyrants and usurpers? A duly elected president? And when, exactly, does Boone foresee applying the "massive voter gas"? Because, you know, 2012 is quite a ways off still.

This kind of talk is an open invitation to violence; it creates permission for someone to act on this kind of exhortation, especially because it not only dehumanizes, it reduces people to the level of vermin, objects not only fit but desired for elimination.

If Pat Boone is any kind of gauge of the state of mainstream conservatism, I think it's safe to say these people have gone over a cliff and into a deep, yawning abyss.

Remember my discussion of this kind of rhetoric in The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right:

What motivates this kind of talk and behavior is called eliminationism: a politics and a culture that shuns dialogue and the democratic exchange of ideas in favor of the pursuit of outright elimination of the opposing side, either through suppression, exile, and ejection, or extermination.

Rhetorically, eliminationism takes on certain distinctive shapes. It always depicts its opposition as beyond the pale, the embodiment of evil itself, unfit for participation in their vision of society, and thus worthy of elimination. It often further depicts its designated Enemy as vermin (especially rats and cockroaches) or diseases, and disease-like cancers on the body politic. A close corollary—but not as nakedly eliminationist—are claims that opponents are traitors or criminals and that they pose a threat to our national security.

Eliminationism is often voiced as crude "jokes," a sense of humor inevitably predicated on venomous hatred. And such rhetoric—we know as surely as we know that night follows day—eventually begets action, with inevitably tragic results

Given the current climate today, we can expect a whole lot more of the nutjobs to come out from under their rocks this week.


  1. Wait, wait....WAIT. Did I just read a description of eliminationism? Depict the enemy as vermin? Is this "reveal your playbook" day?

    The way nationalistic whites are portrayed as vermin goes much, much farther than just "reverse" racism. That has been the most effective and often the only tool in the anti-racist box. "Nationalist whites are scum. Need an example? Steve Holten. See?"

    Thanks for the new word! I'll be sure to run it in the ground, exactly where it needs to be!

  2. White Nationalist have a long history of sexual child abuse. See Kevin Storm and Matt Koehl just to name a few. You are scum, you will always be scum. Pray that we never meet face to face.

  3. Idiot...this is why you don't impersonate a real person. "We've" met face to face.

  4. ROFLMAO! Now THAT was priceless!

  5. Heck Yeth! What the other Drake said. BTW I have a new Death Metal Jam on my Blog!

  6. Ok, I can't have you just going to all that trouble for nothing. Get yourself a black magic marker. Draw a lot of kind of crappy tattoos on your upper arms and torso. You've got lots of room on your torso so really go nuts. From a distance, they might be able to pass as "oh Drake's got a lot of tattoos, that might be him."

    Also, lose some weight. I clock in at 200lbs, not 280. Try some black walmart BDU's for the slimming effect. Also, I never, ever talk in a video without an airsoft gun in my hand. That's important. It makes your mom think you are tuff so she never fusses at you to get a job. Also, take the underware off your head. The real Chris Drake doesn't do that. Just wear shades or something.

    And I never sing and play guitar at the same time. To sound like me there, put in more lics than actual cords. If you come from more of a bass/rythmn background it should be easy. All of my two songs include a breakdown too.

    Next, hang a flag behind you. Chris Drake loves flags, always has.

    I honestly don't see why you are going to all this trouble unless it's purely for entertainment.

  7. OMG that is funny as hell. That is the real Drake. Has to be.

  8. Underwear on my head. You spineless shit. That is my KKK of America Klan hood. WITE POWER!

  9. Looking back over this video: whoever you are, YOU ARE A FUCKING FREAK!

  10. You can sure tell that Oborbutt likes sucking those Dicks as well getting Fucked up his Faggott Ass. That stupid Mother Fucker doesn't seem to have enough sense to wipe his ass.

  11. That is some seriously disturbing stuff (fake Drake Video). The last thing I want to see is a seriously fat guy in female underwear. Please god strike my eyes blind.

  12. It's been confirmed. It's John Taylor Bowles of the ANP. Everything matches up perfectly.

  13. No, that Tatoo on his left arm. That is Justin Boyer.

  14. No, nobody can draw tattoos on. It's crazy assed Taylor Bowles alright. Besides, Taylor had tattoos.

  15. the tatoo on the left arm is the one that Justin had, dipshit.

    Pay more attention to the tatoos next time you are sucking his dick.

  16. You never met the man I am today Drake. I am not Bill's lap dog any longer. You haven't changed you are the same shallow man.

  17. Justin doesn't weigh close to 300 pounds. It's Taylor. You can be positive. How did he expect anyone to not realize it was him?

  18. That guy is Justin and he I'd put his weight more around 250 or so if that. 300 lb is more defensive tackle weight.

    Why is he wearing female underwear?

  19. Fuck you assholes. Chris Drake only weighs 228 and stands 6 foot. It ain't easy being greasy. WITE POWER!

  20. It's Taylor Bowles and that's that. Anybody who has heard him talk or seen a photo of him knows it's him. He would have been elected president but not now.

  21. That is Justin Boyer and you are a fucking idiot.
