After I googled Samuel Alito and "third circuit court of appeals," I cama across some wingnut blog which referred to the "Socialist" ACLU and its Christian-hating policies. Damn. I had heard all my various left-wing news outlets talking about the right wing Christmas propaganda war now raging, but I hadn't encountered it in the raw yet.
How can people be so ignorant? Maybe they just listen to the crap that spews out of their teevees and radios and never bother even once to look something up for themselves?
So, if that dope w/the blog comes here, maybe he'll read this list of cases involving religion that the ACLU took on. If the dope says, "but that's the ACLU's web-page! You can't trust them," I have this to say to him: If the ACLU were lying about taking on those cases (like the one of the school girl who wanted to sing some Christian song at her school) then it would be DAMN easy to prove it. It would be as easy to prove as it is easy to prove that Bill O'Reilly never won a Peabody, but he SAID he did. If you read that article, you'll wonder, along with me, "is it legal to lie to like that?" (By the way, if you look up who HAS won Peabodies lately, you'll see Link TV, Dan Rather, and John Stewart, but I don't think the Fox crowd was in the running.
Don't people begin to feel a little bit stupid for continuing to listen to this idiot liar with the loofah on the brain? urgh. Thinking about it makes me queasy. Time for bed. I'm reading Alfred Doblin for the holidays because he is not a liar.
What about you, what's on your winter holiday reading list?
