Ruse Hates Dumb Idiots Who Call Names

Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute is mighty upset. You see, Right Wing Watch quoted him verbatim saying that those who run universities should be taken out and shot and that means they’re obviously out to destroy him and every other Christian. And they’re dumb. And they call names.

“The pajama boys over at Right Wing Watch have their panties all in a twist about what I said, and I sometimes think that the left is really dumb, these are the low-information voters that make all of these mistakes when they get into the ballot box and all of these mistakes as they go through their lives and one of the reasons is because they are so dumb,” he said.

After calling liberals “dumb” and “pajama boys,” he then criticized them as “smear merchants” who “call [people] names” and want to shut him up.

“These people, these dumb leftists, are really smear merchants, they’re out to hurt, to harm, to isolate,” Ruse said. “They don’t like me, they don’t like you, they don’t like your children, they don’t like anything about you and they want you to basically shut up and go away…. It’s quite astounding what these folks are able to get away with and it’s also astounding how dumb they are.”

I know, right? All those dumb idiots calling people names. It’s just outrageous.

    “They’re so dumb, they’re dumb”

    Ruse started today’s show by explaining that his remarks yesterday weren’t serious

    So, how do we know what you said today is serious? … By the foaming at your mouth?

    Austin Ruse concluded by shouting “na na na God loves me best,” before running of stage waving his arms wildly.

    Ruse said. “They don’t like me,..

    He got one thing right. No we don’t like Austin Ruse. Why should we? He just threatened to kill us.

    It’s quite astounding what these folks are able to get away with and it’s also astounding how dumb they are.”

    Actually it is the fundies who are dumb. They score low in intelligence and education and are lower in socioeconomic status. It’s why the south is always on the bottom of any measures of well being.

    Their solution is to attack education whenever they can. Because no matter how dumb they are, they can always get dumber.

    In a followup, RWW responded to Austin Ruse’s comment on his own intellectual level with the statement: “I’m rubber, you’re glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you. Also, you’re a poopyhead”.

    “Pajama boys”?

    A fact they are well aware of. It doesn’t stop them from threatening to kill heretics, apostates, scientists, and atheists though.

    Pharyngula 2 days ago:

    Yes, it was moral to burn heretics, as it would be moral to haul your own living carcass to the stake. I’d gladly set the fires myself.

    Some troll two days ago, got all nostalgic about the good old days of the Catholic church. Poor guy is going to have to settle for making idle threats on blogs. Burning people at the stake is considered murder these days.

    Yeah, that was a new one on me too, but apparently in conservative circles it’s a thing:

    I’m sure he didn’t say those who oppose should be shot. Stoning is the authorized punishment.

    Re raven @ #4

    What fucktards like Ruse want is to make everyone as dumb as he is.

  • matty1

    Mr Ruse, nobody likes you, if you’re for things to criticise over you’re going to have to set the bar a bit higher than that.

    Fun fact: heretics were burned at the stake because the clergy were proscribed from “shedding blood”, so frying someone was OK as blood was not involved

  • nellwebbish

    Wow … that’s different. The AFA fired Ruse and removed his show from their archives:

    Ed: I know, right? All those dumb idiots calling people names. It’s just outrageous.

    Here, let me augment that for you:

    I know, right? All those dumb idiots calling people names and getting away with all kinds of astounding stuff because they’re so astoundingly dumb. It’s just outrageous.

    Out of the mouths of right-wingers comes an endless torrent of implicit or explicit self-contradiction.

    and want to shut him up.

    well, he sure got that one right.

    anyone NOT want this clown to shut up?

    no, don’t give me the argument that he’s valuable as an exemplar…. Imagine if he was visiting your house…

    The comedy writes itself. It’s like RWW is becoming the Onion without even having to try.

    The left has the “Pajama boys”, the ReiKKKwing has “rentboys’ and “baggage handlers”.
