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.

WTaF? I don’t know of any Hindu goddesses named “Kamala”. Or any Hindu gods with that name, either.

Yeah, he’s pulling it out his ass…shocker, I know.

Actually, the name seems to be an alternate name of the goddess Lakshmi.

Bareshark

Oh, I know Lakshmi, goddess of fortune who can and does withdraw her favor if she feels underappreciated. The only other name I knew her by was Sri.

The lotus blossom, which is what Kamala means, is definitely one of her adornments or attributes. That doesn’t automatically make it a nickname or alternate name, although it certainly could. Link?

I’ve always found it amusing that she is described as a concubine of Vishnu. The Hindus appear to me to have a good grasp of reality if their goddess of wealth is a sex slave.

That’s just the current version, Underwriter. Tales had her associated with quite a few gods. And the proper term is “consort”, implying that it’s her choice. One story had the gods lose big to demons because she walked away from them because she felt disrespected.

Better than going through life with a middle name that’s a quite popular slang term for a toilet! If we could include clips I’d want to add that part of Robin Hood – Men In Tights where King Richard is dismissing pretender John and says that henceforth all toilets shall be called JOHNS!”

Kudos for the much-needed Mel Brooks reference! I got to say that this remake of Springtime For Hitler is just no fun.

Denis Elliott

Well, like others when it comes to Brooks the comparison of Trump as evil versions of LePetomane and Barr as Hedley Lamar always comes to mind, although with me I can’t keep my mind from going darker. As in Blazing Saddles meets A Clockwork Orange with Alex being Trump/LePetomane and one of his “droogs” (I don’t remember the name but the one that smashed Alex at a crime scene which is how he got arrested and convicted) as Barr/Lamar. Stephen Miller is of course a real life droog. There are others close to Trump as well, some of whom we… Read more »

Only Trump fools/monsters care what this fraudster has to say. He promotes their racist god Trump so they will send Ricky more money. Preachers have been poison in this country for hundreds of years.

Trump is Swahili for,” He who licks his own azz like a dog in the sun.”

Oh. And Rick forgot to put the silent capital “P” before his first name.

And Trump is himself a false god. So…yeah.

Boy, Trump sure knows how to pick them, batshit crazy and as corrupt as hell.

They’re feeling their scam is running out of steam. They’ve got maybe a decade left before the yokels they roll regularly are all gone…and that’s assuming COVID 19 doesn’t speed the exit.

Well first time commenting. I’ve always wondered why folks “looked” at my name funny. Anyways. But I finally had to ask Xians (End Timers, Dominionists, et al) “what was Jesus’s Christian name?” And it wasn’t Hay-sus (or however the fellers on Rawhide spelled it LOL). And oops, some college kids thought it was sinful for some folks calling their kids Jesus!!! Of course I had to ask if using the “Christ” was bad. Thus poor “Chrisie” was notified she was going to hell. The looks I get when I ask (and then say) what his supposedly very common name was:… Read more »

As I recall, Senovio, Jesus’ actual full name was Yeshua Ben Joseph, which sounds like the Jewish equivalent of “John Smith”. And “Life of Zeus”? One might call that name a…gift from God.

Bareshark

Yeah, no…as someone who actually knows the Hindi pantheon, that’s nowhere close to right. To this little POS, however, I will convey this little chant: Jai, Jai, Kali-ma! (Victory To The Dark Mother!)

I studied the bible at unc-ch, along with chemistry, biology, botany, ecology, calculus, & anthropology. Dr. ‘Bunny Boyd, my mentor, taught at Princeton. He was a language scholar, an archeologist, & an expect on how the book came about. He also was an expert on the mysteries, & how our culture has misrepresented so much over the years, leading to where we are. Example: the early followers were called believers, not Christians. Much of what these folks believe is either outright false, or misused. No reverence, ironically, for the mysteries of this creation. Arrogance & ignorance are their twin idols.… Read more »

How can he say she is cursed? if he is a serious Christian, he should not believe in curses. Am I right?

Or, to quote the almighty goddesses of hip-hop, Salt n’ Pepa:
“So the moral of this story is, who are you to judge?
There’s only one true judge, and that’s God
So chill, and let my Father do His job.”

(From the song, “None of Your Business.”)

My little sister had that track on repeat back in the day, Joseph.

It’s kind of funny because the current Ms Marvel (in the Marvel Universe) is a young Pakistani MUSLIM who just happens to be named KAMALA Khan.

But, I have to wonder if this nutjob is aware that the majority of “Christian” names are not really “Christian?” Even in English, most derive from Hebrew (which is NOT Christian by any means) or from pre-Christian Greek, Latin, Celtic and Germanic sources.

Bareshark
Guest

I’m impressed that you know about Ms. Marvel, Joseph. And yeah, Kamala Khan is a GREAT character.

Then is every male named David cursed? David was an adulterous murderer. All this whining about Christian names baffles me. The apostle Paul worked with a believer named Apollo. Paul didn’t freak out, call him cursed or tell him to change his name. They just went about their business.

By his logic, all those guys named Jesus (pronounced He-soos) are really God, just like the Jesus of the New Testament.

Sounds great comimg from someone who uses the word for a haystack as his name. But them the other abbreviation of ‘Richard’ is slang fpr a part of the male anatomy (which, in this case) would be completely apt
