Kincaid Paints His Face Blue and Pledges His Life

Unhinged bigot Cliff Kincaid had Paul Kengor, author of a book that argues that gay marriage is a communist plot to destroy America, on his show and he got himself all puffed up and macho-like and declared that he will “fight to the death” to stop gay marriage and save the country.

Kincaid agreed with Kengor’s theory that gay marriage is an outgrowth of a Communist plot against America, while insisting that there is “a natural revulsion against where this whole thing is going. And [Americans] sense that our country is slipping away. And we can’t let that happen. It’s as simple as that.”

It always cracks me up when right wingers pretend that the public agrees with them about everything. In case you hadn’t noticed, Cliff, a majority of Americans now support marriage equality. In fact, it’s nearly a 2/1 margin now. So much for that “natural revulsion.”

“We’ve got to fight to our deaths to save this great country,” Kincaid asserted.

Kengor hopes that his book will expose the truth about the gay rights movement, as he lamented that liberals are “unwittingly” backing a Communist agenda.

“This has been planned in advance,” Kincaid added. “This is the planned destruction of our country.”

The other thing that cracks me up about right wingers is that they really do seem to think that they’re playing the role of William Wallace, painting their faces blue and screaming “FREEDOM!” at the top of their lungs. Such macho.

    Are you sure he’s not just holding his breath ’till he gets his way?

    I believe the historical Scots / Pics tended to enter battle naked. That might be rather amusing if these latter-day wannabes decide to follow tradition. Especially if there opponents were, as is likely to be the case, pirates with lots of pasta sauce in honor of the FSM.

    Yeah, because the one thing that will convince liberals they are wrong about SSM is to compare it to communism. Talk about not understanding your opponents.

    I wonder if there isn’t some ancient KGB officer, sitting in his dacha, reading stuff like this and muttering “Gay marriage can destroy America? Damn, why didn’t we think of that?”

    We’ve got to fight to our deaths

    Why don’t you stand in the middle of the nearest interstate waving a sign “Down with this sort of thing”? I’ll be happy to attend your funeral.

    And [Americans] sense that our country is slipping away.

    Canada and Mexico would notice.

    I hope he does paint his face blue:

    FoAW Notes concerning Woad (Isatis tinctoria):

    “Julius Caesar reported (in De Bello Gallico) that the Britanni used to colour their bodies blue with vitrum, a word that roughly translates to “glass”. Many have assumed that vitrum refers to woad, but other modern authors regard this as a misconception, possibly repeated for political reasons; Caesar may have been describing some form of copper- or iron-based pigment. The northern inhabitants of Britain came to be known as Picts (Picti), meaning “painted ones” in Latin, which was due to accounts of them painting or tattooing their bodies. However, modern experiments with woad show it does not work as a tattoo pigment, is caustic and causes scarring when put into the skin.” [emphasis mine]

    Plus it smells rather like a tenement hall — equal parts over-boiled cabbage and cat’s piss.

    You watch. At 10:00 a.m. EDT this Monday, when the SCOTUS reads its decision, the means of production will be seized by the Party.

    We’ve got to fight to our deaths …

    … or until we get a paper cut, which ever comes first.

    “…and [Americans] sense that our country is slipping away…”

    “Baby I’ve been watching you

    Watching everything you do

    And I just can’t help but feeling

    Someone else is stealing you away from me

    I see it written in your eyes

    You confirm it with your lies

    Though the web that you weave can hold me

    I would rather that you told me

    Where you wanna be

    Oooh slipping away from me

    Oooh slipping away from me

    And it’s breaking me in two

    Watching you slipping away”

    This has been planned in advance,” Kincaid added. “This is the planned destruction of our country.

    It amuses me how smart they seem to think communists are. They plan decades in advance, pretend to fall, outwit entire nations into inadvertantly helping them, then destroy everything by taking out some relatively minor institution nobody else seemed to realize was holding up the whole world. A plan so clever it could only be discovered by a crazed, drooling moron.

    A sign reading “Down with this sort of thing!” Great — a meta-protest, the first meta-protest, folks…

    But how dare he protest that sort of thing and not the other sort of thing?

  • carpenterman

    We’re all laughing, but this is sounding disturbingly like the sort of violent rhetoric that inspires suicide bombers. Guys like Kincaid keep throwing around phrases like “fighting to the death to save America”, and some disturbed and/or stupid individuals are going to find a way to do just that.

    “they really do seem to think that they’re playing the role of William Wallace, painting their faces blue and screaming “FREEDOM!” at the top of their lungs. Such macho.”

    Nah, they’re playing the role of Mel Gibson. Sir William Wallace never did any such thing. He was an 12th-13th century knight, not a Celtic-Pictish warrior fighting the Romans 1000 years before then. When I was in Scotland while the movie was playing, the Scots were about half-amused and half-bemused by Gibson’s depiction. They cashed in on it, of course.

    I’ve heard the “this hasn’t come out of nowhere” argument before about gay marriage, and it’s very revealing. What they’re essentially saying is that we should never have allowed gays to come out of the closet in the first place, and that if you’re gay, you should still be forced to sneak around and lie about your sexual identity under pain of having your livelihood, and possibly your freedom, taken away from you.

    Once the institutionalized persecution of gays and lesbians stopped, gay marriage was the inevitable end game. There was never any chance of finding some equilibrium along the way — not one that would stand the test of time, anyway.

    Gosh, where were you when Canada needed you? Thanks for nothing.

    I’m not sure Kincaid would want to emulate a guy who only ‘won’ one battle*, and was finally betrayed by his countrymen so he could be arrested and killed as a traitor.



    * well half a battle really. He was the one left alive after the guy who conceived it was killed.

  • frankgturner

    Yeah that whole “thinking the public agrees with them” thing has a name, it’s called the false consensus effect and it can happen to anyone on any issue. It is a common ego defence mechanism.


    It goes to the extreme of people recreating memories in their mind to fit with the way they want the past to have occurred even when there is solid evidence that it didn’t. It is sad.

    I thought 2:1 sounded high, but it looks like there was a CNN poll recently on those lines. Contrariwise, it looks a slight outlier from the more usual 3:2 ratio from other recent pollsters, and might be sampling artifact or an effect of wording; nohow, it is quite possible it is symptomatic of the trend continuing.
