Wingnuts Hate Being Quoted

Jim Garrow went on Erik Rush’s radio show, which has to set some sort of record for combined irrationality, and complained that Right Wing Watch keeps quoting the bizarre things he says to paint him in a “wacko, weird light.”

“Right Wing Watch, which will be reporting on what we just said, relies on the thirteen tactics that are available to them through Mr. Alinsky, they rely on that on how they report on you and I and they will spin what we’ve done so that we are ‘frozen,’ ‘freeze your opposition,’ present it in such a wacko, weird light that you will end up defending it and really being frozen as far as forward momentum and forward progress with whatever our agenda happens to be.”

Uh, yeah. You know what paints you in a weird light? The weird shit you say every day.

Because there is nothing crazy at all about Garrow’s assertions that Obama will soon claim to be communicating with aliens, try to kill 90% of Americans with a nuclear EMP attack to help George Soros make money and is part of a nefarious Arab-Chinese/Russian-Canadian conspiracy to destroy America.

It’s just so unfair to quote them verbatim. That’s the kind of thing commie pinko Muslims do.

    But … but … everyone Garrow knows just sits there and nods in approval when he starts talking. But when RWW quotes him other people start laughing and pointing. RWW must be using some sort of secret ray gun to make him sound like a nutjob.

    Another victim of the echo chamber.

    I’m sure you think that referring to yourself in the third person makes you seem the very paragon of sanity, Mr Garrow, @@

    If there is ‘nothing crazy’ about your statements why are you afraid to have them quoted? Could it be because it cast you in a ‘weird and wacko’ light?

    Well, that’s true. If you’re a proper right wing nutter, you just make up stuff that the other guy “said” – you don’t quote them. Because they didn’t actually say anything that nuts.

    I wish Obama had dropped him in the Atlantic.

    I am reminded of when Tina Fey was doing her uncanny Sarah Palin imitation on SNL, and the biggest laughs were always for the were actual, verbatim quotes. The stuff they made up wasn’t nearly as funny (or as scary).

    Hey, that “quoting verbatim” stuff is what they did to poor little Robert Bork, and look at all the harm it did to him!

    dingojack @ # 2 – That third-person paragraph (“Because there is nothing crazy…”) came from Right Wing Watch, not Garrow (and it includes links to Garrow’s statements).

    The concluding ‘graf:

    In the very same interview, Rush proved his lack of insanity by arguing that someone “should disappear” Obama administration officials for their alleged hostility to the Constitution.

    I just finished reading Double Down which brings these weird Romney quotes to mind. Pretty tame compared to Garrow but cringe-worthy nonetheless.

    “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what…who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims.”

    “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

    Wingnut debate rules are so different from those I learned in school. Their rules include not only the concept that quoting accurately makes you a hater, but the principle that you must always allow them to have the last word. The wingnut meme being peddled this morning is that the `Same Love’ performance on the Grammys last night, with embedded same and opposite sex marriages, is an example of `haters’ blocking the `conversation’. Joe.My.God quotes a tweet from the lovable Todd Starnes on this subject: `I’ve never seen a such a display of intolerance, bigotry, and hatred.’ Presumably the Grammys should have included 7 minutes of Brian Fischer for `balance’. I think you can summarize all the wingnut rules into one meta-rule: `I’m right and you’re wrong’.

    On the subject of Todd Starnes, I suppose he was alive during the various massacres in the Balkans in the 1990s, the Rwandan genocide, and the current Syrian civil war. But know we know what HE thinks is the epitome of hatred.

    Awesome, I get to mark “Soros” and “Alinsky” on my Teatard bingo card. Now if I could only get a “Wright” and “ACORN” I win.

    Wingnuts appalled at being quoted accurately. It’s become a routine thing, and I think it shows a disturbing side of their psychology. It seems to me they don’t have a concept of people having a genuine reality. They think spin is more fundamental than character, therefore telling the ugly truth about a person they like is never justified. They don’t accept the concept of facts, only whose “side” an assertion supports. They live in a world of subjective shadows without any concept of objective substance.

    Whenever I hear one these shitheads babbling I’m somehow reminded of that scene in This is Spinal Tap where Bobbi Fleckman tells Nigel Tufnel, “You, don’t talk too much”. Problem is, too many mushwits think the drivel spewed by Garrow, Fischer and the rest is brilliant commentary.
