Benedict a Victim of Anti-Semitism

HBD RGG (a day late. Sorry.)...

Pope Benedict's personal priest has accused the pontiff's detractors of indulging themselves in the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism." Now, there's no more shameful aspect of anti-Semitism than the Holocaust, with the Inquisition, the pogroms, and 2,000 years of Catholic church doctrine assigning collective guilt to Jews for the Crucifixion. So how does Father Cantalamessa see the pope? As the victim of a one-man genocide because of his faith? As man unjustly tortured or crucified on the cross of child sexual abuse? I mean, who are the victims here? Doesn't anyone vet this garbage? While church officials bobbed and weaved (one helpfully explained that "parallelism can lead to misunderstandings") and blamed society, Jewish and molestation survivor groups were predictably and understandably outraged...

It's official, Rushbo: The president is black.  Gotta love this bit from Wanda Sykes:
The first black president! I'm proud to be able to say that. That's unless you screw up. And then it's going to be, 'What's up with the half-white guy?'
Offbeat has lived to fight another day. The April reviews are here...

You can't keep that inner Communist quiet forever: Here, Rushbo uses the music of left wing band Rage Against the Machine as a lead-in:


Can you believe this guy? Rushbo may be a snide, pompous liar with an ego the size of Jupiter, but as a rabble rouser at least he has some professional standards. Glenn Beck, apparently, has none whatsoever. How can anyone fall for the Utah ham's phoniness?


Let's give Wanda the last word today:

I don't even know how to respond to any of this crap anymore! From the Catholic priests/pope to Limbo and Beck, it just gets worse and more ridiculous by the hour. I would laugh my head off at the ridiculousness of it all except for the fact there are so many that hang on every word and believe everything they hear. Yep, back to my camera and nature! You say it all so much better than I ever could anyway! Hope you're having a great weekend -- in spite of the news!

The sick irony is that during WWII, the pope of the time ignored the call from Jews to come to their aid. Wonder how many he was directly responsible for sending to the ovens.

That Mother of Mary Fucking Beast RatZinger is The Popetrator of the Doctrine of The Faith!
Yaaaaaasssss, he doesn't even look good in the Pope's Dress, and should be DeFrocked, Fondled and Flayed in a Tree-debarking Machine, or automated Fish-Scaler for suffering the little children to come under him.
HAPPY EASTER! MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WAS ASSASSINATED TODAY, APRIL 4th 1968.
Did I say that loud enough.
Enough is enough!
