Mind you, those are the same cock-slurping journaljizzm hacks who, for years, found absolutely no reason to link religion to anything.
As long as that religion happens to be pisslam, that is.
CARROLLTON, Ark. — On the wildflower-studded slopes of the Ozarks, where memories run long and family ties run thick, a little-known and long-ago chapter of history still simmers.
And it would have simmered still, had it not been for the Ogabe Stenography Pool’s Prime Directive which is to do anything, anything to protect their beloved Fubar and to keep anybody from talking about his abysmal record.
On Sept. 11, 1857,
Very recent memory, as opposed to Der Fubar’s hijinx as a young muslim madrassah student in Indonesia, his trips to Pock-e-stahn and 20 years in Jeremiah Wrong’s racist “church”, which never happened. And if they did, it’s enormously irrelevant and just… SHUT UP! RACIST!
a wagon train from this part of Arkansas met with a gruesome fate in Utah, where most of the travelers were slaughtered by a Mormon militia in an episode known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Hundreds of the victims’ descendants still populate these hills and commemorate the killings, which they have come to call “the first 9/11.”
And “the first 9/11?”
Putting aside for the nonce our Imperial Wrath at having anybody, anywhere, compare anything to 9/11 and relegating it to the status of side show since it wasn’t the “first” one, and our wrath is strong on that issue but we fear that we’d end up writing 48 full pages of invective just to make up the preamble to our screed, we’d very much like some actual sources for that claim. Sources more credible that the Washington OgabePost, which isn’t a terribly high bar to cross. Any random panhandler with a cardboard sign, a loon picked up in the desert outside Area 51, even Sasquatch would do.
And the slaughter of a wagon train? Really? Not to dismiss the gruesomeness of such an act, but we guess that that means we can forever forget to run for office as such slaughter would, to our Imperial Viking Ancestors, be what they’d call a minor disagreement, a slight skirmish or even “what the Hel do we do to pass time until supper?”
At any rate, it hardly compares to the murder of 3,000 innocents using civilian airplanes as cruise missiles.
Many of the locals grew up hearing denunciations of Mormonism from the pulpit on Sundays, and tales of the massacre from older relatives who considered Mormons “evil.”
Do you know who else is a Mormon? Mitt Romney is, that’s who.
Gradually one starts to understand why a 155 year old story suddenly is Headline News according to the Washington Beobachter.
There aren’t many places in America more likely to be suspicious of Mormonism — and potentially more problematic for Mitt Romney, who is seeking to become the country’s first Mormon president. Not only do many here retain a personal antipathy toward the religion and its followers, but they also tend to be Christian evangelicals, many of whom view Mormonism as a cult.
Odd. Because we’re a Christian evangelical, yet we don’t, in spite of our skepticism regarding Mormonism (we wouldn’t be much of a Christian evangelical if we didn’t feel that way. We’d be an Episcopalian, Bible Optional, or some-such), recall having ever wondered or even worried about Mittens starting a nation-wide massacre of our kind based on something that happened 155 years ago.
And keep in mind that we’re of European birth. You think YOU have long memories? We still bear grudges based on stuff that happened a millennium ago. Heck, sometimes we don’t even remember what actually happened, but we still know that we’re supposed to bear a grudge, so we do. We’re funny that way. Most of the time, though, we do remember. An example: We’re still mistrustful when it comes to Swedes. This was because they once attacked us and beat our asses in a war. In 1658. We’re still pissed off about that.
Just in case anybody starts saying that we “don’t understand grudges.”
But you still don’t see it plastered across newspapers over there.
And yet, there is scant evidence that Romney’s religion is making much difference in how voters here are thinking about the presidential election and whether they are willing to back the former Massachusetts governor.
“I think the situation right now is more anti-Obama than any other situation,” said Dave Hoover, chairman of the Carroll County Republicans.
So what, exactly, is the Washington Stürmer trying to tell us here? That it matters or that it doesn’t matter?
Oh wait, we think we got it: They’re saying that it should matter without actually saying so. They’re just “asking questions.”
Which is great. Particularly considering how they adamantly refused to ask any questions whatsoever about the idiotic, lying, socialist clown who is currently president because they were too damn busy sending their entire staff to Wasilla, Alaska, to find out if Sarah Palin was ever late on returning a library book.
But there is no liberal bias in the media whatsoever. Nosirree. That’s just RACIST to even suggest!
How about we just hang the whole sorry lot of them and let the crows feed on their eyeballs? We’ll be happy to throw a couple sestertii in to pay for the massive amounts of rope needed.
We kept saying that while the GOP nomination was up for grabs, that the OgabeMedia would focus intensely on Mittens’ Mormonism, something that most sane people don’t give a shit about, should he become the nominee.
But we were just nuts. They would never stoop that low, we should never bother with such things.
We’re getting Imperially sick and tired of being right all the time.
Almost as tired as we’ve been for a long time of watching fools and idiots ignoring every single word we say because, even though we have a lifetime of actual EXPERIENCE with socialists, first-hand and all that, we’re really just a delusional wingnut because, don’t you know, this nation is DIFF’RUNT. The Germans felt the same way, and look how well that worked out for them from 1933 to 1945. “It can never happen here”… Until it does. And it’s happening.
Yes, we’re different in a lot of ways, which is why we’re proud and honored to be a citizen of this nation, but when it comes to human nature we’re just as stupid as everybody else.
But keep Fluking that Chicken because, hey, what do WE know?
P.S.: (Because His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Misha I, is never really done when he says it is as you all know by now), at least the OgabeMedia, as always, in launching yet another retarded attack, has managed to bare their throats to us. If something that some co-religionists of Romney’s did a century and a half ago is suddenly relevant, then surely Ogabe’s youth as a muslim and years in Jeremiah’s church must be relevant too, no? After all, Ogabe was actually alive when those things happened. Normally we couldn’t care less which school a six-year-old was forced to attend, it’s not like you have a choice in that matter at that age, but now that ball is in play. Let’s roll.
