The 25 Stupidest Liberal Quotes Of The Last Decade
Townhall ^ | Aug 17, 2013 | John Hawkins

Posted on 08/17/2013 3:06:34 AM PDT by South40

25) Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world. -- Harry Reid

24)The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S. -- Joe Biden

23) I took a poo in the woods hunched over like an animal. It was awesome. -- Drew Barrymore

22) Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama cannot win, and they are put in place to assure a victory by Mitt Romney… this is the plan of all the insurance companies that are owned by Mormon interests. It is unfolding as the Mormon Church planned over the last fifty years. -- Roseanne Barr

21) I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 — building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. -- Rosie O’Donnell talks Trutherism

20) Isn't it a little racist to call it Black Friday? -- Joy Behar

19) A good place to start a more civil dialog would be for my Republican colleagues in the House to change the name of the bill they have introduced to repeal health care reform. The bill, titled the “Repeal the Job Killing Health Care Law Act,” was set to come up for a vote this week, but in the wake of Gabby’s shooting, it has been postponed at least until next week. Don’t get me wrong — I’m not suggesting that the name of that one piece of legislation somehow led to the horror of this weekend — but is it really necessary to put the word “killing” in the title of a major piece of legislation? -- Chellie Pingree, Congresswoman (D-ME)

18) The Republican Party is saying that the President of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this President around, the unions boss him around. Does that sound to you like they are trying to consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that, of course, of course a black man can’t be the real boss? -- Lawrence O’Donnell

17) Herman Cain is probably well-liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, conservative movement and tea party movement. People like Karl Rove like to keep the racism very covert and so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so he can say, ‘Look: This is not a racist anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look: We have a black man.’ And look he’s polling well and he won a straw poll. -- Janeane Garofalo

16) If we want to keep our reproductive rights, we must be willing to tell our stories, to be willing and able to say, “I love my life, but I wish my mother had aborted me.” -- Lynn Beisner, the Guardian

15) Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to (Democratic Senator Tim Johnson)? …I know what this [Republican] party is capable of. -- Joy Behar on The View

14) Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them. -- Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

13) Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’ The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you. -- Joe Biden

12) Those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants. And they’re not voting for you, b*tch. -- Joy Behar after receiving flowers from Sharon Angle

11) During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. -- Al Gore

10) Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. -- Nancy Pelosi

9) Watching both the health care and climate/energy debates in Congress, it is hard not to draw the following conclusion: There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today. One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. -- Thomas Friedman

8) I root for hurricanes. When, courtesy of the Weather Channel, I see one forming in the ocean off the coast of Africa, I find myself longing for it to become big and strong–Mother Nature’s fist of fury, Gaia’s stern rebuke. Considering the havoc mankind has wreaked upon nature with deforesting, stripmining, and the destruction of animal habitat, it only seems fair that nature get some of its own back and teach us that there are forces greater than our own. — James Wolcott, Vanity Fair

7) Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. -- Barack Obama

6) The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied. -- Jeremiah Wright

5) How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he’s an Islamist until he’s made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al-Qaida. Is that the point at which you say, “This guy is dangerous?” That’s not a crime to call up al-Qaida, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy? -- Chris Matthews

4) The medical term for Down Syndrome is Trisomy-21 or Trisomy-g. It is often shortened in medical slang to Tri-g. Is it not perfectly possible that the very name given to this poor child, being reared by Bristol, is another form of mockery of his condition, along with the “retarded baby” tag? And does the way in which this poor child was hauled around the country on a book tour, being dragged out in front of flash photographs in the middle of the night, barely clothed, suggest someone who actually cares for children with special needs, or rather sees them as a way to keep the spotlight on her? -- Andrew Sullivan

3) I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. -- Sheryl Crow at the Huffington Post

2) Had a powerful meditation just now — caused an earthquake in Southern California. …Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake. Sorry about that. -- Deepak Chopra thinks his meditation can cause earthquakes

1) My fear is that the whole island (of Guam) will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize. -- Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson

I can think of quite a few that would be in the top 5:

“We have to pass the bill in order to see what’s in it”

“If everybody just carried a tire pressure gauge and put more air in their tires, we’d solve our oil problem...[or words to that effect]”

“You didn’t build that....”

“We need to deepen all the ports in the Gulf - Savannah, Charleston, etc......”

26) “First of all, with regards to women’s health care, look, I’m the guy that was about to get health care for all of the women — and men — in my state. They’re talking about it on the federal level, we actually did something. And we did it without cutting Medicare and raising taxes.” ~Governor Mitt Romney

That’s what happens when you live a sheltered life as a youth with no hardships or have parents that are the same.

I think what happened is that at some point (mid 90s by my best guess), there was some cosmic event or fracture in the space time continum that causes reality to split along two divergent paths. Somewhere out there in the multiverse, real Earth goes about it’s normal business with it’s normal issues.

We on the other hand got sucked into Bizzaro World where Rodeo clown masks are Racist, and the rest.

Weither that or the rapture happened and we are all in hell.

Remember Joycelyn Elders? From an article when she was fired as Surgeon General:

she suggested that the country study whether to legalize drugs and attacked the Catholic Church as having “a love affair with the fetus.”

she told a group of gays and lesbians in June that they must help save the children from “the un-Christian religious right,”

She also famously said that we need “safer guns and safer bullets.” And that we should teach sex education to children, starting when they are six months old.

“People think about geothermal energy – when they think about it at all – in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot...”

I have three favorites:

21) I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 — building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible. -- Rosie O’Donnell talks Trutherism

Well Rosie, just how do you think steel is made, formed, alloyed, etc.? Ever hear of a cutting torch? Rosie, you really should keep your pie hole shut on topics you obviously know nothing about. Of course that would me she would have to stop talking about, well, most everything.

14) Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them. -- Mary Frances Berry, former Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights

...and right there in a nutshell is the entire, blatant racism of the left. Whites are trash merely because they're white. However, "enlightened" liberals are so blind they can't even see this obvious racism.

9) Watching both the health care and climate/energy debates in Congress, it is hard not to draw the following conclusion: There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today. One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. -- Thomas Friedman

Speaking of "enlightened" - this shows the rampant and dangerously un-American and anti-American sentiment underpinning most of the modern day liberal group-think. They don't believe in freedom and liberty. They believe in fascism, in control by an elite few.

I could barely get through 25 of them without throwing up or throwing something at the computer, or screaming at the screen.

10) Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. -- Nancy Pelosi This is the woman that the Democrats chose for the speaker of the house. Then after she led her party to a stunning defeat and lost the house to the Republicans (aka the Stupid Party) they elected her minority leader. She doesn’t even know that her country’s population is around 300 million.

So the people who made these extraordinarily idiotic comments are the smartest people in the country and are uniquely qualified to lead this Republic.

I know that this is supposed to be funny but I weep for my country. Too many people in this country believe that these people hold the answers to our problems.
