You owe me a new Irony Meter!


Irony Meter 2.0

A few posts ago I mentioned how horrified Conservapedia founder Andrew Schlafly was about the Greek team expelling one of its members from the “politically correct” Olympics for her racist tweets. To quote the man:

The politically correct 2012 Summer Olympics begins: expulsion of a young athlete for twittering a joke about immigration to her homeland of Greece. If the Olympics were in the United States, where free speech is a right, then a court may have ordered her reinstatement.

Remember that last bit about “free speech being a right” in the USA.

Because clearly Conservapedia’s resident swabbie, Brian Macdonald, aka Karajou didn’t get that memo.

In the wake of religious fuck-wit Mike Huckabee’s “Support a bigot Chick-fil-a day” (in case you’ve been in a coma for the past few weeks, Chick-Fil-A is the purveyor of bad fast food, whose owners have publicly stated that they are against gay marriage) it turns out that a guy filmed himself having a go at a Chick-Fil-A employee. On the video, the man orders a free cup of water from the drive through and says that he ordered the free water because:

Chick-fil-A is a hateful corporation and it gives money to hate groups. I don’t know how you live with yourself and work here. I don’t understand it. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values. You deserve better.

Probably not the wisest move, but a firing offense? You see, his employers got wind of it and promptly fired him.

So much for that right to free speech. I’m sure those defenders of the rights at Conservapedia will be all over this, right?

Wrong.

Up steps Macdonald:

Outstanding! Liberal, hate-filled bully – specifically, the chief financial officer of Vante, a Tucson, Arizona medical manufacturing company – who filmed himself gleefully-ranting against a Chick-fil-A employee, get’s some harsh language in return, from his boss: “Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.”

Yes, a liberal, hate-filled bully. Compared to a company that opposes basic human rights for a section of the population. And what exactly does Macdonald think of this abuse of the man’s right to free speech?

Outstanding!

Just another example of the madness at Conservapedia – where they defend neo-Nazis and bigots with the same breath.

About PsyGremlin

PsyGremlin is a former Conservapedia sysop (although the position was earned nefariously), stand up comedian, DJ, and is currently a self-employed financial adviser, who impersonates a responsible adult at least 5 days a week. However, highlighting and poking fun at the crazies out there remains his first love. Well besides pork crackling. And custard. And cricket.

    I’ve honestly just stopped expecting even basic consistency from the far-right at this point.

    In-keeping with the whole “Chick-Fil-A” nonsense, there’s another beautiful example of Conservative irony and inconsistency. On Fox this week Sarah Palin appeared to claim that people boycotting Chick-Fil-A is some kind of an attack on Free Speech and 1st Amendment rights. And many Conservatives agreed with her… yet when you bring up the Conservative boycotts of, for example, J.C Penny, or the guys who make Oreos, suddenly them boycotting those places is just an expression of their 1st Amendments rights.

    See the stupid there? Conservatives boycotting something: Perfectly acceptable expression of their 1st Amendment rights. Liberals boycotting something: Evil attack on the 1st Amendment rights of the company they’re boycotting.

    It’s like Conservatives think that rights like that only apply to them. Which isn’t surprising, they are an ego-driven, narcissistic bunch of lunatics at the best of times.

      Well, this is the woman who explained to the world that her resigning her post in Alaska proved she wasn’t a quitter, so doublespeak does come very naturally to her.

      On a completely unrelated note, I’ve been following Charles Pierce’s reports on the massive droughts in the US on the Esquire blog over the last couple of weeks and even though it obviously is horrible, I found some small amusement in the thought that Andy “Oooh, a speck of snow…. GLOBAL WARMING IS A HOAX!” Schlafly must be absolutely fuming right now.

      • PsyGremlin says:

        Unfortunately, every time Schlafly has been called of the unusually high temperatures over the past few years, his response has been to find one place (last year it was somewhere in Washington) that was having unseasonally cooler weather and go “See! Global warming is a hoax!” His other tactic has been to say “Well, it’s summer, of course there should be warm temperatures.” He’s a first class dick.

    • PsyGremlin says:

      Damn! That’s actually an excellent point you raised. Admittedly, the cons didn’t go as far as saying Oreos couldn’t be sold in their cities, but it is a great example of conservative double standards. Methinks I have a new blog post coming up! Thanks!
