The “Rev.” Fred Phelps on Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart

This is just hilarious. I particularly like the part about “hooligans,” “Godless Sodomites,” and “fag-enabling fools.” And don’t forget: “the Satanic spirit of mockery.” (I wonder if Respectful Insolence™ would qualify.)

Funny, but Phelps looks and sounds much as I pictured him. Actually, I couldn’t watch more than the first half of it, as it rapidly gets tiresome and repetitive. Still, it’s disturbing to see that the Westboro Baptist Church nutcases are now doing video, and the production values are actually better than I would have expected. Too bad it’s all to dress up truly vile, hate-filled content and to defend their despicable tactics of picketing the funerals of homeosexuals and slain military personnel, with plans to picket the Flight 93 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on the fifth anniversary of 9/11 next week.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
