C’mon People! Obama Reacts to Trump Braintrust’s “Obama is a Demon” Rant

October 11, 2016

See Trump science advisor Alex Jone’s video rant below on this page.

No doubt I’ll be hearing from deniers that Obama didn’t specifically deny that he was, in fact, a demon.

    Obama is pretty close to a demon as is Hillary. Their policy of supporting the terrorists in the middle east has killed hundreds of thousands, made slaves out of a lot of women, made our lives less safe as Orlando demonstrates, caused millions to leave the middle east including thousands of terrorists who now infest Europe and are coming here if they are not already here. Demon is actually fairly mild.

    • Paul Whyte Says:

      Tom I think that you will find that only Republicans will take you seriously. I’m an Australian and you sound like a stark raving lunatic.

      Thousands of terrorists infesting Europe…….. really that takes the 1950s reds under the beds myth to a whole new level.

      The insane myth making that is coming out of the USA currently has Australian’s laughing at you. I don’t think that you can tell what a huge joke your country has become.

      I was in Europe 2 weeks ago and the attitude that the Europeans had who I asked about the US elections was quite uniform. The Republican’s are so desperate that they are being led by a charlatan and con man as who there best guy is. Your cause is just plain funny.

      There is so much material coming out of the Republican cause that whole TV shows are made with GOP talking heads as the fall guys.

      What is even funnier is that it appears that there are people in the USA who actually believe it. As if it really is true. It makes the Icelanders with their Trolls and Elves seem to be moderates by comparison.

        ‘Sound like’!? That’s kind.

        I doubt the US will never recover from the Trumpettes, no matter what the election result is.

        If they win we get the first fascist Oompah Loompah Presidency. God help us all.

        If they lose we get hysterical conspiracist denunciations of the media, the Democrats, and, probably most scarily, the Republican elites who failed to ‘stay the course’ with the Deplorables. Many of whom are heavily armed, are fed on a diet of Fox, Breitbart and Infowars, and think blatant bigotry is just fine now. ‘Patriotic’, in fact.

        I wish I thought it was just funny – just imagine a world run by people who *really* think Tom’s world view is ‘real’…

        (Does anyone really doubt that they’d have managed to work themselves into such a spittle-flecked, onanistic lather about a ‘demonic’ candidate who wasn’t a woman, incidentally? )

    • Holy c*ap, he’s … uh … almost like God in his ability to make the entire world do things. One man does it all, who needs governments, or anything, with one person holding all the power in the world to make individual humans into his puppet. Sure Tom Bates, that’s rational.

    • mbrysonb Says:

      So you don’t think Dick Cheney’s presidency (torture, Iraq and all) was a problem? And you think one sick man (who apparently was gay or bi himself and had problems with that, problems likely aggravated by the lunatic hatred of gays shared by Republicans and Islamists alike) shooting up one nightclub is Obama’s fault, and all those other shootings by angry white men don’t show that what the US needs is a reasonable level of gun control? There’s a kind of madness in the selective attention and selective blaming you’re engaged in here. But I presume (like other Trumpies) you just don’t care about that– you’re mad as hell and you’re going to blame anyone you don’t like for anything you can imagine blaming them for. Now that’s sad.

    • Once again, apologies to all except Tommy Poo for the repetition — but as I’ve said before, every time Tommy Poo pops up up here, I’ll hit him with this.

      And I’ll update my retraction-request counter each time.

      Tommy Poo,

      This is at least my seventeenth request for you to retract (and apologize for) your lies about the NASA/GISS global-temperature work, lies that I called you out on *months* ago.

      Do you remember this particular claim that you made?

      …and only shows warming after that when they plug 66 percent of the data with estimates which are higher than the actual temperatures they replace.

      I proved you wrong by showing that the NASA warming trend can easily be replicated with raw data (no adjustments/estimates/etc.) Link here: https://climatecrocks.com/2016/05/26/exxonknew-and-chose-to-lie/#comment-84594

      When you continued to post here without retracting that completely false claim, I followed up here: https://climatecrocks.com/2016/05/28/bill-maher-on-trump-energy-policy/#comment-84709

      You also ignored that second request to retract your claim.

      And a third.

      And a fourth.

      And a fifth.

      And a sixth.

      And a seventh.

      And an eighth.

      And a ninth.

      And a tenth.

      And an eleventh

      And a twelfth

      And a thirteenth

      And a fourteenth.

      And a fifteenth.

      And a sixteenth.

      So I’m following up with yet another request (this one is at least the seventeenth). Will you admit that you were wrong about NASA and how it processes temperature data?

      Every time you show up here, I will ping on you about this.

      Every. Single. Time.

      And I won’t stop until you acknowledge that you were wrong.

      (Actually, I don’t really expect Bates to man up and admit that he was wrong; I’m simply using him as an example of how deniers are utterly and completely incapable of admitting error, even after they tell the most egregious whoppers).

    I’m liking the Republican infighting right now. I keep trying to goad Trump into using the phrase Paul #FlipFloppingRyan on twitter, without much luck; I only have 900 followers. Anybody with a larger account want to give it a try?

  3. redskylite Says:

    You know who we need to solve this conundrum . . .

    You know, Jones really IS part of the Trump, *cough*, ‘brains’ trust – the ‘Hillary for Prison’ slogan was his idea, and he’s made a lot of money selling T-Shirts adorned with the slogan to the Trumpettes, though the Bill Clinton ‘Rape’ T-shirts failed, even when marketed to Deplorables. Can’t win ’em all…

    He also fed Trump some of his most mind-numbingly Stupid notions. We are talking industrial grade Doofus here.

    For a quick and entertaining read on this very subject I recommend Jon Ronson’s ‘The Elephant in the Room’ (https://www.amazon.com/Elephant-Room-Journey-Campaign-Alt-Right-ebook/dp/B01LXOO7UQ) – a cheap, but worthy, Kindle short.

    Ronson, an English journalist ( a sort of lo-fi proto Louis Theroux) feels kind of responsible for Jones; it was his idea to gatecrash the Bohemian Grove gilded dorkfest, and the resulting coverage made Jones a megastar of the tinfoil hat circuit.

    Ronson is very worried that Jones and some of Trump’s other, longer term, even-more-unsavoury cronies really might yet form a cabinet. As we all should be.

    • skeptictmac57 Says:

      Thanks for the tip. I love Ronson’s work, and I was able to get it for free as a Prime member.
      I saw a snippet of an interview with Ronson on Jones’ show a few days ago, where he talked about feeling responsible for Jones’ rise in popularity. Jones did most of the talking, so I couldn’t stomach very much of it though.

    • dumboldguy Says:

      Speaking of T-shirts,a recurring pop-up ad for me is one advertising a shirt that says “I Was Deplorable Before It Was Cool”. I fully expect my Tea Party to start wearing one.

  5. Lionel Smith Says:

    Jones did most of the talking…

    You call that style of delivery ‘talking’, that is way too kind. Jones is a rabble rouser, agent provocateur par excellence, but as daft as a one bristle tooth brush.

  6. Demon…as a minister that’s a tough term to ascribe to someone. Yes, demonic possessions happen, though perhaps not in an ‘Exorcist’-esque Hollywood way. But the demonic is a far smaller aspect of the larger notion of evil. The Satanic is evil strictly for the sake of evil; think Bundy et al. This is the stuff that grabs headlines.

    The demonic is far more subtle, especially the corporate kind. When a corporation tells mothers that breast milk isn’t sufficient and markets formula instead, in a third-world nation stricken by abject poverty and poor sanitation, that’s demonic. When Coca Cola moves into a poor country giving away water, then selling water, then selling cola (the world’s #1 drug – caffeine), then raising the price…that’s demonic.

    Is the guy who drives the delivery truck possessed by a demon? Does the accountant smell like sulfur or the mid-level manager attract flies? Probably not. But the actions of the corporation (literally a ‘body’) are evil, almost as if that body of people acting in concert to corrupt the good and beautiful world in which we live, is indeed possessed and directed by an evil force.

    Around here it seems like we love to blame the Kochs or other individuals and ascribe to them all sorts of power. It is more likely, I think, that they are but one part – no doubt an important and influential one – of a larger organization that works as a force of destruction and insidious death in our world.
