I’m going to keep a tin foil hat by the computer, because I don’t want to miss a one of these profound pronouncements coming out of right-wing television these days. Between now and the election, I sense that they will become more intense and closer together, like labor pains.
Rick Wiles, noted for his anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories, proclaimed on his “TruNews” show that Kamala Harris is cursed because she has a Hindu-derived name.
“She was named for a Hindu goddess. Is that who we’re electing? A Hindu goddess?”
Oh my God, that’s not white enough for Rick! And he goes on to say that very thing!
“Look, if my mom and dad named me for a Hindu god, I would go to a court and demand — I would want a Christian name. I wouldn’t want to go through life with a Hindu god name. I’d want a Christian name, because it would be a curse for me to go through life named for a false idol.”
This is wingnut speak for “Being white and Christian and preferably male is the only acceptable standard. Anything that deviates from that is of Say-tun.”
Actually, I think Mitch McConnell may be putting some of these boys up to this buffoonery, because while we’re busy guffawing at these dopes, he’s busy ramrodding those judicial appointments through the senate, while there’s still time.

You know, the Jews could say this very thing about the Hispanic guys named Jesus and I’ve known many. Some things are better left unsaid.
My sense is that there is going to be more competition for the Michele Bachmann Batshit Award in the next 47 days.
