There’s something both amusing and appalling about the synergy that takes place when two wingnuts talk to one another. As if they’re activating their wonder twin powers, they manage to transcend their individual ability to be morons and combine to form one giant moron. Vic Eliason and Phyllis Schlafly demonstrate this symbiosis perfectly in this discussion:
Eliason: Phyllis, there have been those that allege that Mr. Hagel has become or has been a part of Islam, he’s Islamic. What substance is on this thing?
Schlafly: Hagel is the most dangerous appointee for secretary of defense we’ve ever had, he’s got so many things wrong with him. He’s for getting rid of our nuclear weapons, he’s for downplaying our anti-missile defense and he’s even for signing onto the Law of the Sea Treaty, which would give some more foreign people the opportunity to make decisions about our policies. Whereas we know the whole world is better off if we have military superiority. Well, when we talk about Obama and his attack on religion he gives a pass to Islam. So, we have to be on guard on that all the time.
Schlafly: Well Jerry Corsi is very reliable and I would take his words very seriously, that’s absolutely true. I think it so dangerous to have Hagel as secretary of defense, who is trying to implement all of the pacifist ideas that Obama has.
Hagel is a Muslim? And Obama is a pacifist? Welcome to the alternate reality on Planet Wingnuttia, where a man who has engaged in a massive campaign of raining missiles on Muslims is both pro-Muslim and a pacifist. Apparently there’s a wingnut dictionary where those words mean entirely different things.
