“The Obama administration is trying to install an ‘internet czar” (and it’s interesting because ‘czar’ is a Communist term and it makes a lot of sense they’d want to use it).”
If Brannon Howse is the future of Crosstalk (since Vic’s probably kicking the bucket before too long and, as previously stated, will end up in Hell) then the show will achieve levels of insanity that even David Icke never imagined. He is a tin foil hat xtian. Every single thing that the government does, meaning Obama, reeks of Satan and godlessness. Everything. Even Vic and company tread carefully on calling Obama “evil”. Brannon revels in it.
His show today consisted of almost completely false information. Brannon just plain old doesn’t think about what he says. He’s not an idiot, so much as he has one topic and filters everything through it – “Political correctness is cultural Marxism”. Yeah, I’m not really sure I get it either. I think it means if you don’t say “God” at least twice in every sentence then you’re going to Hell and you hate America. His shtick involves saying Marxism, Communism, Socialism and Fascism (as God) as often as possible. It doesn’t matter what the topic is. In the Crosstalk tradition, he doesn’t trust God or Jesus but relies on fear.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Brannon perfected perfect fear. And his job is to scare the shit out of you. For Jesus.
The leading quote is a perfect example of how xtians throw around words like baseball bats in a gay bar. He just tossed off the parenthetical bit as after thought. Such is the need to turn even the smallest word into a batttle field this brain seized on “czar”, doing a quick word association.
Does it matter that the” [blank] czar” came into use during the Reagan administration? Of course not. Does it matter that Communism kicked the Czars out of Russia, disqualifying it as “communist”? Of course not. Does it matter that, knowingly or unknowingly, Howse lied like…well…a liberal making that statement? Very much.
So I called.
Also on my list of topics was
If the swine flu has only killed one person in the US and is getting brought back by Americans coming back from vacation, why do we need to close the border? You want to keep Americans out of America now?
To set the record straight on the Hate Crime Bill
“Nothing in this Act, or the amendments made by this Act, shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct protected from legal prohibition by, or any activities protected by the free speech or free exercise clauses of, the First Amendment to the Constitution.”
I started with the commie thing. [Note – this is a very rough transcription]
Me: Hey, you’d made a comment about the internet czar and how czar is a communist term.
Me: Well, I know that you want to trash the Obama administration by any means, but “czar” isn’t communist. The communists overthrew the czar and never used that term. It’s not true. What you said was false. And –
BSH: Ok. Well, maybe I was wrong.
Me: Yes, you were.
BSH: But it’s not a nice term.
Me: It has nothing to do with communism
BSH: But it’s not a good thing. Czar isn’t a word that’s about freedom.
Me: It’s a word that’s about imperialism.
BSH: But it’s still…it’s a –
Me: You can’t use it to smear Obama. It’s like comparing him to…the British government or somthing. It’s about as far from communism as you can get.
That last sentence got cut because Howse hates the truth and must, at any cost, never admit he’s wrong. Because if he’s wrong listeners might start actually listening to the shit that spews out of his mouth and realize that, jesus-fucking-christ, the guy not only lies about everything but doesn’t come close to understanding his religion.
I could have sworn that part of Christianity promoted humility and correcting your mistakes. You know, “honesty” and that bullshit. It’s not, apparently.
Stop and think about it – I gave this guy fact and rather than humbly admit he’d gone over the edge, he argued with me.
Have fun in Hell, Brannon.
