Late Night: Celebrity Stupidity

Barely-celeb former SNL cast member Victoria Jackson–who became a Christian stand-up comic, Tea-Party speaker (oh that voice which launched a thousand ships–in the opposite direction!), and inadvertent laughing stock when she ranted about Obama being a granny killer and called POTUS a Communist (you know someone’s an idiot when Fox’s Steve Doocy has to correct her)–wrote a bunch of homophobic remarks about Glee and then tried to Bible-lize her way out them on Showbiz Tonight:

Well, it doesn’t matter what I think. What matters is what the Bible says. And I’m really concerned about our country because immorality is, well, let’s see, secular humanism rules the airwaves, and it’s stealing the innocence away from this whole generation of children. My daughter is a teenager and I can’t find any show that she can watch…

For the uninitiated, Victoria also explains the term “homophobic”:

That’s a cute little buzzword of the liberal agenda. Basically, the Bible says  homosexuality is a sin. But is has also gossip is listed in the same paragraph as equal sin [sic, wtf? sic facepalm,jpg].

So if gossip is a sin, why is she on a gossip show? (BTW, she is referring to Romans 1, though the word is “gossips” as a plural noun, rather than as a verb). Anyway, back to her nutty rant:

They should have a celibacy campaign and tell kids that 50% of teenagers now have this new STD from oral sex, that’s what they should being doing  doing instead of making kids gay. I just want to know why the liberals are pro-Muslim and pro-gays. Muslims kill gays. That’s what’s confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is the Muslims hate God and the gays hate his word.

Wow, is she dum or whut? Muslims love God, they just call God “Allah” because they speak a different language. Like the French who call God “Dieu” or the Spanish who use “Dios.” It’s not a different God, just a different language, and some minor variations in theological concepts.

More stupidity from Jackson: Fifty percent of teenagers have an oral STD? No, according to the latest study, 51% of teens surveyed said they had oral sex before their first experience with intercourse. And there’s nothing new about HPV (Human papillomavirus).

Best part of the video: Jackson shouting at the end that she has gay friends.

And in other low-level celebrity moron news, arch-huntress Sarah Palin has long touted the benefits of eating fresh killed, wholesome game meats. And goodness knows, game can be tasty, but maybe Ted Nugent hasn’t been cleaning it correctly, because he seems to be suffering from lead poisoning. Check out his editorial in the Washington Times:

Africa isn’t called the Dark Continent for no reason. Africa has forever been a political nightmare full of overt corruption, tribal warfare, genocide, murderous regimes and brutal dictators…

There is no country in Africa that truly respects freedom or the rule of law. The majority of countries in Africa are in economic ruin because of political corruption and a history ugly with cruel despotism. That’s why starvation and disease are rampant. AIDS is projected to kill as much as half the populations of some countries. Genocide is a way of life. There is little light in Africa…

Africa is an international scab. Bono of the band U2 advocates that if we forgive debt African nations owe, peace and tranquillity [sic] will sprout up mystically. The real problem is murdering, corrupt thugs and punks like Col. Gadhafi. Once we swat one of these African cockroaches or intervene in their civil war, where do we stop?

Uh, somehow I don’t think African nations started out corrupt and despotic. See, there was this thing called colonialism…

Side note: debt forgiveness is one part of helping the nations of Africa and so is HIV/AIDS care. With that in mind, and this being the 30th year of the scourge of HIV/AIDS, we’re featuring The Lazarus Effect here on Movie Night, Monday April 18. Produced by Join (RED), an organization Bono founded to provide HIV/AIDS care in Africa, The Lazarus Effect is  also airing on HBO April 15th.

Who else has been really idiotic this week?

Africa isn’t called the Dark Continent for no reason. Africa has forever been a political nightmare full of overt corruption, tribal warfare, genocide, murderous regimes and brutal dictators…

Colonialism after Europe left they created countries that were unstable two or more tribes but the smaller tribe often ended up in power thanks to European help. This way in order to maintain power they had to keep the majority down and would thus be dependent on European weapons?

To be fair, what the US has offered the world, such as jazz, blues, cinema and television, art, some opera and dance, etc., has been astonishing. But by the same token, I wish we were a little more aware of the astonishing accomplishments of other countries and cultures. I have hope, however.

The tribal situation in Libya is a bit a bit confusing to Westerners. Most of the tribes commentators are referring to are Arab tribes (or Arabized Berbers) and so all belong to the same larger ethnic group (like the tribes of Israel). There are also ethnic Berbers, mostly along the coast, but including some Tuareg in the south of the country. When people talk about “tribes” in most African societies (mostly a misnomer actually), they are generally referring to different ethnic groups or pre-colonial political groups.

In many ways, the situation in Libya is similar to that in Iraq (if you ignore the Kurdish north). Arab peoples are tribally organized with many different tribes. As in Iraq (or anywhere else in the Arab world) there is considerable rivalry among the tribes and some longstanding feuds, which carry over into modern politics. Some of these Arab tribes spread into North Africa during the Jihad of the 7th and 8th centuries. There they incorporated many of the indigenous Berbers, while other Berbers adopted the Arabic language and customs (as well as retaining some of their own) and came to identify as ethnic Arabs while retaining their earlier tribal identities. I am not sure what tribes are present in Libya.

Hopi was not a reservation until 1882. There were separate villages across the 3 mesas. It wasn’t until the imposed constitution came in 1934 was there really a “Hopi Tribe”. In the villages today clans have a great deal of say over who gets land for housing. Clan leaders have important roles in advising traditonal leaders. Different clans have different responsibilities within Hopi society. Clans also identify who your relatives are and the various reltationships between individuals. This makes sure that you don’t go marrying someone you are related to such as cousins.

John Stuart Mill was far too generous. Conservatives really are all profoundly stupid.

Yeah, I’m a big fan of Mill, but you’re right. He was actually pretty easy on the conservatives.

What a bunch of ill-informed, intentionally ignorant, assholes. THAT’s conservatives. At least today.

Anyone else noticing you can’t reply to any messages after you post one???

After I post a message, all of the Reply buttons disappear when I refresh. But then, when I refresh again, all of the Reply buttons reappear. I know that’s a small thing to bitch about, but was wondering if anyone else noticed this or if it’s just my machine.

Very funny.

I typed on antiwar.com a day or so ago, on a Scott Horton interview of a TPer, that conservatives today are nuts.

Got a little provocation, but not as much as I expected.

No i didn;t…

I have been drinking a detox tea which has alfalfa, lemongrass, green tea, nettles and burdock root. Helps fight off just about everything, incluidng any stray radiation that might floating about beautiful Los Angeles. And also I;ve been eating chips made wiht adzuki beans and chili pepper, plus garlicky organic hummus.

I am currenlty searching out high beta glucan barley flakes.

The longer people live in a specific geographic are, the more languages are spoken.

Take Northern New Mexico for example. 1200 years ago a few variants of Athapascan (Tewa) were spoken. Fast forward to today and now there are several major language groups; Tewa, Spanish, English and other lesser groups due to immigration (Chinese, Arabic, Russian.)

Ditto. This FDL subsidiary software is decisively inferior to mothership.

But that is not unique to LaFiga.

MyFDL software truly sucks.

tis a known glitch — the tech folks are aware of it…. the temp fix is the refresh as you mentioned

In response to ChristineEdmonson @ 105

It is something the tech team is working on, slowly but surely. I have gotten used to it. What bums me out is the hang up I get sometimes from Reddit during refresh, but that seems to be a variable based on how the Reddit servers are doing

As much as I have detested and been abhorred by Vickie Jackson post SNL . . . thanks Mz. Derrick for keeping her batshit crazy visible.

All of us humans need to know the depth and rampant existence of batshit crazy.

N like stupid, ya just can’t fix batshit crazy . . .

(n I thought Palin in Israel was batshit crazy)

Thanks for all you brang to the eyes of us readers . . .

Beta glucan barley flakes? Huh????

N per above I thought the African languages n tribal affiliations were comlex.

*G*

Ah, OK, thanks Suz and Lisa.

I have to ask because frankly I realize it’s possible it’s my old brain that’s gone haywire, and not the puters. Course, it feels good to learn, at least in one instance, that it’s a known problem and not another brain fart. *g*

I never watched the twit before, but I can’t imagine this woman was considered an “actor”! She has no sense of the camera, gazes upward and to the sides much of the time, speaks with immature inflections, and looks puffy. And what’s with the Aunt Jamima ‘do?

What do Muslims have to do with the show? “Liberal agenda” is one of the big misconceptions (lies) of the Xtian Right. Liberals are tolerant, so I don’t need an “agenda” to try and convince others that I accept them for being gay or Muslim or Xtian or whatever they feel or believe. But we do have to fight against this bigotry that condemns minority groups.

It’s funny how zealots need to carry a Bible with them. It’s like a crutch they depend on to bolster their own dearth of thought. That’s probably what the eyes looking up are about — grasping for “divine” inspiration because there’s nothing upstairs.

There are plenty of disputes on who should be leaders of the villages Of the clans, not really any disputes there. And don’t worry, I am not Hopi, just live and work here.

It was quite a hit, very important documentary. And in a plug for Monday night’s movie event, we have The Restauranteur about Danny Meyer who created several succeful restaurants in NYC: Tabla, Eleven madison Park, Union Square Cafe and Gramercy Tavern.

Strangely enough, the left didn’t realize that when it was calling Bush a fascist, it sounded as ridiculous to reasonable people as calling Obama a communist does.

Reasonable people recognize both as fascists.

I’ll elaborate: torture, a police state that spies on its citizens, perpetual war and crony capitalism are all fascist traits.

Ahhhh, so you’re saying Obama is a fascist. Got it.

Let’s recap:

1. Bradley Manning, Death Team
2. Continuation and expansion of the USA PATRIOT Act
3. Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya
4. Bailing out the banks and Geithner’s BFFs.

Why the video you linked to has been taken down, Lisa. :-(
