Have You Ever Wished The View Was More Islamophobic?

And homophobic? And that it featured more pouting privileged Christian fundamentalists crying victim because they cannot impose a theocracy but are forced to respect the existence of gays and Muslims? And that it starred Victoria Jackson descending into the 9th Circle of Self-Parody?

Well then you’re in luck. Meet the mesmerizingly awful Politichicks:

    I try to click on the little arrow with my right hand on the mouse, but then my left hand leaps over to stop it…

    Crap, my right hand one and omg… the song… DON”T LISTEN TO THE SONG!!!!

    I’m five minutes in and I’m like “oh this is satire” “no wait it’s serious” “oh haha it IS satire” “wait a minute, that sounded sincere”

    Ok, someone just tell me, what the hell is this?

  • Trebuchet

    Sorry, I only lasted about 30 seconds. Is this on TV somwhere, or just the web?

    I did look up Victoria Jackson, whom I had never heard of. She apparently has a grandchild named (I am not making this up) Ever Grace Hiltibidal.

  • Jason

    Wow, this show was so informative. I had no idea that Christians were not allowed to say “In Jesus’ name, amen” but that Muslims are allowed to legally behead their wives, in America. It sounds like I’m exaggerating, but that’s almost a word-for-word quote (see 4:28).

    Ugh, I can’t watch any more.

    More “facts” (No exaggerations, very close paraphrases or exact quotes):

    All terrorists are Muslims.

    Conservatives haven’t been allowed freedom of speech for 40 years.

    Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have “dead eyes” (even the co-hosts did a WTF? look at Victoria Jackson on this one, until one her co-hosts regained her composure long enough to ask for clarification as if it were a meaningful comment).

    Man! How many people do the Tamils have to kill before we get a little respect on the terrorism scale?

  • http://timgueguen.blogspot.com timgueguen

    Tamil extremists would have to kill Americans before anyone in the US, besides whoever is on the South Asia desk at the CIA, would pay any attention. And the usual suspects would try to convince the US public somehow that Tamils are Muslims.

    • had3

      Well, if the Tamil are terrorists, and all terrorists are muslim…the Tamil are muslim. No convincing needed. Good thing they aren’t true scotsmen too.

      This may explain my sudden urge to eat a lot of lamb and be angry at people who draw cartoons…

      Damnit! We were so worried that Obama was a secret Muslim that I have been one all along!

  • Ulgaa

    30 seconds in and I screamed uncle. Weapons of mass stupidity.

  • GregFromCos

    Is this serious?

    I will never say a POE went over the top if I find out this is real. I cannot believe what I am seeing.

    Quite literally 4 absolute falsehoods, in the first few minutes.

    Did she really just reference an email forward to show that Soros owned Snopes.com

    • Physicalist

      In case anyone is actually wondering: This is real, not a parody (well, not an intentional parody).

      Victoria Jackson’s participation vouches for its authenticity.

      (I was about to link to Wiki, but then I realized that Jackson’s earlier comedic career might mislead those who are unfamiliar with her. She really is a completely crazy right-wing jesus-freak wingnut.)

  • Paddy

    “That’s just a fact”

    Any complete bullshit that these idiots spew out is 100% substantiated by stating, “That’s just a fact”.

    They’re too stupid to be embarrassed.

    It’s truly repulsive. They are disgusting. I don’t have enough words to describe what I think and feel about these complete morons.

  • V. Riga

    The first time I tried to watch this the flash plugin crashed after 5 seconds. I should have taken the hint…

  • http://a-million-gods.blogspot.com/ Avicenna

    My person favourite thing is that she actually rebutted herself over the barbarism of Halal by mentioning Kosher (It’s pretty much the same deal.) as if it were something spectacularly different.

    • http://a-million-gods.blogspot.com/ Avicenna

      Edit!

      Personal favourite! Not Person Favourite!

      (I can’t brain today, I have the dumb)

    • laurentweppe

      It’s not as good as the people who try to play the “animal welfare” card without realizing that their indifference at the fact that future steacks are as badly treated by the meat industry when they are not destined for ritual slaughter betray them instantly.

  • Nele

    Believe it or not, they seem to be legit:

    ” Finally, Conservative Americans will have an alternative to those other liberal-based talk shows in which women scream over each other and call Conservatives vile names.
    The PolitiChicks are former Saturday Night Live alumni and Tea Party favorite Victoria Jackson, pro-life speaker and activist Jennique Stewart, editor and activist Jennie Jones and Ann-Marie Murrell, columnist and host of The Patriot Update video show.”

  • Chris

    Are they bringing out a nude calendar with their wise comments?

    It would be the perfect gift for some folks I know.

  • sailor1031

    Unfortunately this is for real. I so wanted it to be a POE to prove that americans do have a sense of humour; but it turns out to be a serious fascist endeavour put out by some far right org. with “patriot” in its name….Oy vey!

  • Ƶ§œš¹

    Is it just me or does Jannique Stewart seem like the most rational of the three?

  • Stacy

    Snopes is owned by George Soros! Who knew? *eyeroll*
