"I dabbled into witchcraft." Quote NOT by Obama.

post #1 of 235

It was the anti-masturbation TeaBagger O'Donnell.

Here's more- "I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do. One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar and I didn't know it. I mean, there was a little blood there and stuff like that.

We went to a movie and then had a little picnic on a satanic altar."

Imagine if Obama had done these things!

Incredible. This kind of infantile gibberish only thrives on the mass ignorance of the public, this state of anesthesia and somnamulence fed by the corporate media. Witchcraft and Satanism have about as much in common as *genuine* Christianity and capitalism...ie NOTHING. ZILCH. SQUAT. To be honest...fuck all.

Its amazing how the public can be manipulated by fears based on groundless claims or utterly bogus premises.

* Commies were about to take over the US in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s......
* Cannabis can turn normal people into gross 2-headed scaly-skinned mutants.....
* WMD in Iraq were to be used on the US... at an hour's notice.....
* Iraq troops were killing Kuwaiti incubator babies.....
* Al Qaeda sleeper terrorist cells are waiting to bomb us.....
* Sharia law is encroaching the US legal system......
* The homosexual agenda is about to destroy the American family.....
* Bombs made of liquid binary explosives can be made on airplanes....
* The laws of nature can be violated to feed a popular theory......

and thousands more such instances of dark ages drivel.

*****

A National Geographic poll of high school age kids in the US found the following unbelievably scary findings:
82% were unable to locate Baghdad/Iraq on a globe
50% were unable to locate the Pacific Ocean on a globe (despite being the largest feature on the planet).
etc.

A similar poll in 2005 found that 90% of US troops serving in Iraq *KNEW* that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11.

With such prevalance of mass idiocy and pig ignorance amongst the US mainstream, its hardly surprising that the purveyors of fear-based fantasy and fairytale have resorted to this latest blot in human devolution..... the popular conflation of wicca and satanism. Its also not surprising that these tactics always seem to work, because such a large section of the US public remains so FVCKING STUPEFIED.

And yes, the Huffington Post, alongside Fox News is a prime candidate for the 2010 Goebbels Media Awards.

Sorry sammijo, I misenterpreted your post.

I agree plain ignorance maybe being stirred up, and I hope the Huff isn't doing that, but the story has merit as news, how it's interpteted is up to us.

Btw - Witchcraft and Satanism are two entirely contradictory concepts.

Witchcraft - ie Wicca - is the old pagan Celtic religion re-envisaged by Gardner.

Satanism does not really exist but if it did would be a subset of Christianity in some inverted sense since it accepts Christian conceptions of Satan and God but instead sides with Satan so to speak.

Claims of someone practicing both are therefore the usual uniformed BS.

seg the huff article is pretty brief and doesn't delve into any differences between witchcraft and satanism. What conclusions her supporters and also non tea party repubs make may well blur some of those distinctions. It would be interesting to know how this news is being received from those quarters.

What's your take on how this will be perceived amongst her followers and those more aligned with the GOP? I ask, in part, because she's chosen to cancel events, is that a way for her to play the media card?

We have to imagine the background of Obama because to this day, the media have never investigated it at all due to their agreement with him.

Hands Sandon, simply point me to the story that goes in depth in the President Obama's history in any form or fashion and we can talk. Until then, I'm not going to care about their Republican hit pieces.

You need some assistance.

That cartoon does not reference race in any way.

So it is not racist.


It's really that simple.

I've put it in size 7. bold and italics, to help you understand.

We can compare.... Rush Limbaugh, say.

Rush Limbaugh telling a black caller to "take the bone from your nose", or Rush Limbaugh saying that pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson, or that the NFL should practice riots by robbing convenience stores, after a discussion on race, do reference race. In quite derogatory ways.

So you see, the difference is quite clear.

Racism really does exist. And it's OK to say that it's bad.

Anyway, this cartoon has fuck all to do with race, so it cannot be said to be "racist."

If you don't understand this, and I am not specifying anyone in particular, you are a fucking dickhead.

That's the new meme for the right wingers on this board. Have nothing to say? Troll by calling non-racist things racist! It's like a game of racist tag. They think that if they call other people racists, that removes their own racist "it" status. I'm surprised we haven't seen "That cartoon is racist. NO TAG BACKS!" yet.

The context of this needs some analysis: Witchcraft and Satanism are the key phrases that communicate something to the extreme evangelical Right. It's like a code - sort of a fundie version of the Freemason handshake.

It's saying "I'm one of you but a super-version.....see I was a SATANIST and now I'm SAVED".

It serves two main functions:

One: underlines 'the power of God"

Two: marks the individual as somehow 'chosen' - after all, if God rescues someone from 'the Occult' then it's for a reason no?

So it's used quite cynically. To garner religious support. Look at it this way:

What else could she say to the same effect and get away with it? She 'dabbled' (one always 'dabbles' in the Occult in fundie-speak...never 'studied extensively' or anything requiring attention) in 'homosexuality'?

Would never happen. Drugs and being gay are real life choices real people make and fundies can't afford to be measured against the real lest they be found wanting.... must be something 'imaginary' (although imo Magick is real but they know nothing about it) so they always focus on the 'Occult'.

It's that cynical.

Or maybe she's just an idiot.

Interesting point Seg. Since it is both Bill Maher and Huffington Post who are helping push this dog whistle coded message forward, clearly they are part of the vast right wing conspiracy. It all fits now. I mean Bill Maher is dropping the n word just to make a point so clearly he is a right-wing racist. Ariana Huffington is merely his partner in crime.

Good detective work!

He desperately wants to use the n-word, just like Laura Schlessinger did. Laura had the ulterior motive of wanting to resign before getting shitcanned for terrible ratings so causing a big stink and getting to finally let some of her racism out of her moldy mouth box was the perfect malfeasance. Her contract was up at the end of the year anyway and she wasn't going to get renewed. Dropping n-bombs and sounding as giddy as a little school girl while doing so was the easy, coward's way out.

I see your point BR. My own radio show however has fantastic ratings and my own contract has been renewed so I guess I'll just have to hold on a bit longer.

I agree. Perhaps she should have pointed out Obama's mixed heritage and associated him with rap imagery too. Also according to the cartoon above, O'Donnell clearly is poor, eats in fast food restaurants, rents and other code words associated with being black. So racist of them to try to take her down by suggesting to Delaware voters that she isn't "clean" and "articulate."

Well groups can make claims but that doesn't prove the claims. The article notes she has run for Senator three times in the last five years while the watchdog group claims she wasn't running for office. It sounds like it is easier to claim that she was continuously running for office.

Meanwhile in this case, perhaps we should consider the source of the claims as well.


Roll Call reported that CREW investigated "groups and individuals who are the foes of CREW's donors" as well as a political opponent of one of CREW's board directors, and that CREW refused to disclose its donor list.[6] Donors to CREW include such liberal groups as George Soros' Open Society Institute, Democracy Alliance, Service Employees International Union, the Arca Foundation, and the Gill Foundation.[6][12][13] The Roll Call article also stated that the CREW mission statement had changed since 2005, when it read that CREW "differs from other good government groups in that it sues offending politicians directly" and that it "aims to counterbalance the conservative legal watchdog groups that made such a strong impact over the past decade."

Melanie Sloan serves as CREW's Executive Director. Prior to starting CREW in 2003, she served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia, after having worked for Congressional Democrats John Conyers, Charles Schumer, and Joseph Biden.[14]

Thanks for helping root out how the liberal media complex engages in smears tonton. Job well done!

All the liberals are writing her off; that's to be sure... but what is the name of the Democrat running? Hell... nobody knows that name! And who just beat an 18 year incumbent Congressman in the US Senate primary? Oh that would be Christine O'Donnell, who's campaign has become a financial juggernaut since gaining national attention with the victory. Her Web site indicated midday Thursday that it has taken in more than $1 million in contributions since Tuesday night. Meanwhile the rest of Delaware tries to figure out who the anonymous democrat running against Christine O'Donnell is. Anyone know?
