Skip to comments.Stephen: King of Krazytown (Yale Attack on Jesse Lee Peterson, Glenn Beck)
Posted on 09/25/2009 9:50:54 AM PDT by nickcarraway
Tuesday night at the Yale Political Union, I had the pleasure of hearing certified ******* crazy person Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson spew unadulterated nonsense. Sheer stupidity cascaded out of that mans mouth; it was like watching a headless chicken run around in circles vomiting out racist, self-loathing bile, if that chicken was a black neoconservative reverend. Needless to say, I had a great time. Few would admit it after all, the man targeted basically every demographic except for white males (huh?) but I think we all left that room furious, shocked and, beneath it all, entertained.
Truthfully, I think crazy people hold a special place in all of our hearts. Im not talking about mentally ill crazy; I mean oh-my-god-this-bald-man-has-his-own-YouTube-video-blog-about-his-cat crazy, a distinction that is admittedly blurry at points. Who knows, Peterson may be putting it all on. After all, its hard to imagine anyone let alone anyone of African ancestry who would realistically think it reasonable to thank God for slavery, which, as he said on his radio show, took black people out of the mess that Africa has become. But maybe thats what makes it interesting; its kind of thrilling to see people spout completely incomprehensible garbage as if it made total sense.
The Internet brings these people out in droves. At this point, thats a given. The lowly soapbox on the corner has transformed into the likes of MySpace, YouTube, Craigslist and probably 90 percent percent of Web sites. As I have written before in scene, YouTube comments provide a treasure trove of their own. However, these voices are getting louder and louder. And we love it.
After all, for what other godforsaken reason would Glenn Beck be on the cover of Time? The man is literally crazy. Hes like Bill OReilly if he were a bit younger, a bit fatter and a lot more on speed. And yet Americas in love. His ratings are through the roof. Why? Because hes a ticking time bomb. He could blow at any minute. And thats exciting.
Kind of like Kanye. Now I know hes talented and successful and very hardworking and all that, and Im really happy for him, and Imma let him finish (HA!), but I would like to nominate him as a new all-star of crazy, up there with Beck. His recent childish outburst during Taylor Swifts acceptance speech at the Video Music Awards reeked of alcohol and insanity, an explosive combination when televised live to millions. Later that night he blogged his apology, which read like the computers equivalent of a second graders crayon scribble (I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHES IN THE BLEACHERS!
BOOOOYAAWWW!). Its amazing! You couldnt write this stuff. And it warms our hearts. Kanye goes on to vomit, THATS WHAT IT IS!!!! IM NOT CRAZY YALL, IM JUST REAL. But no, Kanye, youre both. Thank God.
So this is today’s Ivy League writing? My, how the mighty have fallen.
Dang Will. Put your tongue back in your mouth
Wow! And this is a product at one of our supposed “elite” universities?
He spends 5 paragraphs talking about how crazy people are, but never really writes anything of substance to prove his point.
Exactly who is the headless chicken? Maybe he is pecking on the keyboard at Yale.
The author of this rubbish is projecting on Jessie....there all fixed.
He must have been watching Keith Olbermann. Or anyone at MSNBC, actually. Clearly, the Ivy Leagues ain't what they used to be.
Doing drugs to cram for tests is not a good thing.
And it’s Ivy League... if that’s the case, I’d destroy those yuppie Liberals.
“Kind of like Kanye. Now I know hes talented and successful and very hardworking and all that”
Talented and hardworking are not words I’d use to describe him.
Don’t have time to give him a listen just now, but you guys figger it out...I wanna hear..! hahahah
This writer is clearly a racist!
This would be hilarious if it weren't so serious.
This man has no compassion, no sense of history, and a complete inability to understand any lifestyles other than his own privileged one.
What the Left has destroyed while destroying family and any sense of history older than themselves is an understanding of the sacrifices so many generations in humanity's universal agrarian past have made to create a better world for their grandchildren. It takes generations to achieve a good life for the common man, and that life can be destroyed in a decade.
In the case of slaves, the sacrifices may have been involuntary; but those who saw the opportunities and moved through the stages of emancipation and full participation with an eye to their children and grandchildren do have much to be grateful for, in spite of the continuing need for greater mutual understanding among all racial groups in the U.S.
African immigrants are still flooding into this country for its opportunities. I have personally witnessed the disdainful attitudes of some American blacks looking down on African immigrants, who are grateful to be here, make excellent neighbors and interact more easily with whites than do the race-obsessed AA's with chips on their shoulders.
