Godlessness from the Political Right

Book of Psalms

Godlessness is clearly bipartisan, as seen in some of the reactions to the death of White House staffer Jake Brewer.

What follows are screenshots taken from the comments section of the Fox News story “White House staffer killed in charity bike ride recalled for ‘brilliant mind,’ giving heart“.

One is mistaken if one believes that such vile garbage is a rare exception to the rule among people on the political Right. This writer regrets to report that he has often seen such commentary on right-leaning sites, not only in readers’ comments, but also in the posts of right-leaning pundits.

Does such garbage appear on left-leaning sites? Of course, but the political Left isn’t known to feign godliness (except for maybe Jim Wallis).

Granted, Psalm 53:3 says, “Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.” Thus, not even this writer can claim to be good from a divine perspective, because he isn’t.

Nevertheless, it is appalling to read comments like the ones shown above.

    ““Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.” ”
    Which is why the GOP establishment candidates will not get my vote nor will the GOP in general.

      I am thinking of backing the madman, Trump. Anything would be better than the bullshit and hidden agendas of Hillary, Bush, or some loathsome harpy like Fiorina.

        Better an honest liar than a deceitful one, right?

        • Commander_Chico

          I will just live far away from any nuclear targets. Maybe if the whole thing collapses or is burnt down, something decent and free can be built in its place.

          • b l

            There’s a hole in your logic. Everyone knows where those nuclear targets are. Even the government. So once upon a time, when we had adults running the show, they got smart and put all the vital secret communications and command nodes far away. Hidden. Top Secret. When the internet was first born as Arpanet, it was designed to be nuke-proof- by having secret, redundant, widely dispersed nodes.

            But the Russians probably know all the locations now, or at least, a lot of them. And the Chinese? Definitely, because on Obama’s watch cybersecurity has basically been in the toilet, and the Chinese have been going through our secrets like they were old people at a buffet table. Which means you might know of any nuclear target nearby… but that doesn’t mean the guy entering targeting information into a Dongfeng-41 doesn’t. You might be right on top of ground zero and never know it.

            Also, you might not be near one, but if you are downwind… an attack on a heavily hardened communications facility would likely be a surface burst. That means lots of fallout. That will make a long, narrow, elliptical pattern of death stretching many miles from the target. But the exact direction of that pattern depends on winds at the time of the burst.

            So to bring it home: you don’t know. There MIGHT be some kind of nuke-worthy target within 50 miles, where you have no idea it exists. As Rumsfeld put it, “Then there are the unknown unknowns.”

  • It is telling you chose to focus on this and not on the more than $200,000.00 raised by conservatives to support his surviving family.

  • jim_m

    So a person is conservative therefore they must necessarily be a Christian? Where did you get that idiotic idea?

    • One must conclude he’s never head of South Park Conservatives…

    • Vagabond661

      He may be surprised to hear Democrats are Christian too.

    I feel sorry for the children. Mary Katherine Ham, not so much. She was a tea bagger who vomited out the most hateful venom against any liberal. And was nothing but a lapdog for Bill O’Reilly and the rest of Fox propaganda network.

    Guess you missed this. You should see the chit the left wing loonies (liberals) are flinging at Mary Katherine Ham. I am sure you will post a round of those for equal time…

    • JWH

      I actually met her a few years ago. Nice person, smart person. Sorry she’s had this tragedy hit her.

      • Interacted with her online back when she was getting started, met and bespoke her earlier this summer at the RedState Gathering.

        • JWH

          She’s certainly come a long way.

        • Brucehenry

          Didn’t she used to contribute here?

          • jim_m

            A long time ago.

          • JWH

            This blog is one of the little people she used to know …

        • Commander_Chico

          Bespoke? You made her a custom suit?

    • jim_m

      David only has time to look for things to criticize conservatives for.

    • Commander_Chico

      It’s a personal tragedy for her.

      But like with Matalin and Carville, the fact that people of such extreme differing political beliefs get married and live in harmony tells me that it’s all a pose within the Beltway and a big joke on the people outside the Beltway.

      He’s working for the president and she’s working to tear down the president?

      • Vagabond661

        A husband and wife can have many differences. Mayo over Miracle whip, mustard on hot dogs instead of ketchup, toilet seat up or down, pets or no pets, Alabama or Auburn.

        The problem is we have escalated political differences to ludicrous levels. Just because we are of one political party, we are now not to tolerate anyone who is not one of us. That is blatant partyism.

        We marvel how Carville and Matalin can get along. I think they have mastered not letting political differences define them or their marriage. Same for Ham and her late husband. Surely right now the last thing on her mind is his political point of view.

        To your point I always wondered how Dick Morris slept soundly at night working for the Clintons. The Republocrats are trying to make sure no other party gets at the seat of power. And We the People suffer.

        • Commander_Chico

          I agree that political differences have been escalated to absurd levels, and some political differences in a marriage can actually liven things up, but when you’re actually on a team, it should be more than mustard or ketchup. Otherwise, “what difference does it make?” to quote Hillary.

          One’s in The West Wing, the other’s taking shots at the WH. That should be interfering with your commitment and core beliefs.

          I always thought Carville and Matalin saw themselves as hired guns and were amused by it all. Which is why I discounted anything either said as bullshit.

          Dick Morris was 100% a hired gun, or a whore. He’d work for Bernie, Trump, or Ted Cruz if they paid him enough. And then turn on them if he could make bank with a book.

  • Jimpithecus

    Dear Sir, you make the mistake of thinking that conservative = Christian. It does not. There are plenty of people out there that hold to the values of limited government and sound fiscal policy that, otherwise, have very few values of any kind. You also make the mistake of thinking that conservative = always well-spoken and well-read. These comments come from small minds. Please remember, the very definition of democracy is that you have exactly the same vote as someone who appears on the Jerry Springer Show.

    • twolaneflash

      There is the crux of the matter: democracy. The Republic has been turned into a democracy, a perversion otherwise known as oligarchy, where the rabble has learned it can vote itself entitlements from the productive class. Democracy….*spit*. It’s time remove Jerry Springer viewers’ “right” to vote, taking it back to limited voters selecting representatives to a Republic government. America, under God, not a Pope.

      • WHO’S THE BUSTER

        So how would you decide who is worthy of a vote?

        • Jwb10001

          People that are still alive and citizens of the US? That might leave the democrats in a spot of bother.

          • WHO’S THE BUSTER

            That’s funny. Nonsense, but still amusing.

    “This writer regrets to report that he has often seen such commentary on right-leaning sites, not only in readers’ comments, but also in the posts of right-leaning pundits.”

    You have? Are there links? I’m asking about “right-leaning pundits,” of course. And do you really “regret to report” when you seem to do it all of the time?

    Again, why does David Robertson post here? He clearly hates conservatives. Which is fine, but there are a lot of sites that hate conservatives, and he could get more traction there. Maybe he could end up on some talk show. I’m just tired of reading his drivel.

  • Paul Hooson

    Sadly, if some who call themselves a Christian were ever accused in a court of being a Christian, there wouldn’t be enough evidence to convict them….

  • I’ll just leave this here…

    • jim_m

      Consensus….

  • One must wonder if Mister Robertson will next lecture us on the Godliness of the Progtards…

    • jim_m

      Not really. I never have any expectations that he will criticize the left. I find that expectation set to be fullfilled on a regular basis.

  • Paul Hooson

    This reminds me of the story of a Black man who tried to join an all-White church for years, but the people were very prejudiced and would deny this Black man entry to join for years. One day, the Black man tearfully prays to the Lord, “Lord, I tried to join that church for years, I’m so sorry”. Suddenly Jesus appears to him, “Don’t cry my son, I’ve tried to get into that church for years myself…”

  • JWH

    I cannot attribute this to godlessness; I’ve found that people’s character is typically independent of their belief in a deity.

  • twolaneflash

    It’s simple really. I hate Soetoro and all his minions with my whole heart and soul. Damn them all to hell.

    • WHO’S THE BUSTER

      And there it is.

      • Hank_M

        There what is?

        • Commander_Chico

          The hater.

          • Hank_M

            Got it. Guess the poster should have been more like Obama, stating that they and others should punish their enemies.

          • Jwb10001

            Chico self identifies at long last

        • WHO’S THE BUSTER

          “I hate Soetoro and all his minions with my whole heart and soul. Damn them all to hell.”

          “There what is?”

          A comment not unlike the ones above?

          I always find the vitriol amusing. People that happen to have a difference of opinion on political matters is just that, a difference of opinion; certainly not a reason for emotional outrage, retribution or hoping they meet with misfortune.

          • Hank_M

            I see your point. Thing is, what you stated also describes the SJW, so prevalent on the left.

            But then, If I were to state that the reaction from the right is warranted after the never ending attacks from the left, from Obama on down, you’ll accuse the right of acting like victims.

          • WHO’S THE BUSTER

            LOL, well, as long as it is “warranted” then by all means, “Damn them all to hell.”

  • Hank_M

    What a bullshit article this is.
    Why don’t you cut to the chase and explain exactly how you feel about conservatives?

  • Brucehenry

    If you want to see some nasty comments about a recently deceased guy you should look at the Wizbang archives for the article and thread about Walter Cronkite’s passing. Or we could look forward to the one when Jimmy Carter goes.

    • Sky__Captain

      It could be because old Walter was a key player in losing the Vietnam War.

      My understanding is that for real unmitigated hatred, just go to Democratic Underground or Daily Kos any day of the week.

    • Don’t forget Robert “Sheets” Byrd and Edward “Swimmer” Kennedy…

    • Or you could look up at the anus from which you depend, bruchemorrhoid.

      I could never think of Berra without thinking about what Jim Bouton wrote about him in Ball Four- that Berra’s odd sayings (“Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t go to yours.”) weren’t the product of cleverness – Berra was just dumb.
