How to deal with the crazy.

I followed a link on Ed Brayton’s blog that took me to this video by the perpetually error-prone Dick Morris.  Yes, the video is full of fail, so it self-selects for people who don’t exactly have a rock-solid grip grip on reality as likely to be visiting the site…which is why it was the comments that about made me gag.

This is what greeted me when I first looked.

I believe that Obama has committed several impeachable offenses and has not been brought to justice yet. The 'cover-ups' in government are outrageous. You have posted a very interesting concept. I still think he'll find a way to destroy the Constitution. He has said that it should be re-written. Ponder on that.

How do you talk to people like that?  I mean, you can’t try to connect to them using things like facts or reality, because that’s clearly not the currency they’re dealing in.  So I have a solution: start taking the crazy one step further.

Example: “You think the moon landing was real?  If you just look at the evidence, I’m pretty sure you’ll see it’s a hoax.”

Response:  “Pfft, you still think the moon is real?”

So in response to something like…

And…

Biggest impeachable offense of his is the fraud of his B.C. and it makes no difference his place, time, parents of birth! That should end all immediately for his stint as president! And I *think* there is proof enough! Harry, as your pic addresses your cute-stuffed-shirt-look as a preppy time lawyer, I hope you are exceptional enough to help us do something about the tur*

I could leave a response like this…

I think the SCOTUS and all the legal arbiters in the country (read: the legal experts) know the basic truth (after all, if a non-expert in law like yourself can figure it out, why can’t they?). They know that Obama should impeached, so why haven’t they? There must be some reason that all the judges keep ruling against the people bringing up the INDISPUTABLE FACT OF OBAMA’S FAKED BIRTH CERTIFICATE and for why impeachment hasn’t gained any traction in our courts. Sure, Obama slagged through an undergraduate degree and then another three years at Harvard Law to get his JD with emphasis on Constitutional Law (all so he could know exactly how to destroy the Constitution and, thus, America), but why would all the other people who have spent a life-time studying law join Obama in his anti-American quest? It’s far more likely that the same Justices who have shut Obama down on a number of cases are covering it up to protect him than people like you and me are wrong about a subject we’ve not studied. They know Obama should be impeached, and I think I know why they’re not moving on this: they’re all secretly gay.

The evidence is clear! It makes sense with all the judicial activism going on lately.

And frankly, I’m shocked you don’t think the conspiracy runs deeper. You think Obama was born in Kenya, I haven’t seen any evidence that Obama was even born. Think about it. With all the technology the government has, they can clone animals, they can read our emails, and they can trace exactly where we’re hiding our guns, I think they could easily have grown a puppet human in a petri dish and set him up to go to law school and to become president (because we all know this last election was all Romney’s – he didn’t even prepare a concession speech!). That way the gays could get all their own into the courts and could INDOCTRINATE our children with evolution and scientism – all with their unwitting puppet at the controls.

I mean, what’s the other option; that the system of checks and balances has kept everything mostly square, that our leaders are all trying to make things better rather than destroying America through subversion, and that a large portion of our population is dumber than a tree stump but still thinks their opinion is the pinnacle of educated brilliance? Yeah, if you believe that, then you might as well believe that Jesus didn’t rise from the dead! No, the people are what make this country great! What we need is a little more common sense.

That’s why I laugh at all of you people who think Obama is actually a naturally born human. We should impeach him for not being a human being, on top of all the stuff Daveda and Sally pointed out.

I wish I’d had the presence to point out, when I was talking about how Romney should’ve really won the election, that Dick Morris even pointed out that Romney would win in a landslide, and how often is Morris wrong?  Ah well, carriage wit.

Hopefully it will help all the ones who don’t hop on board with me the chance to experience what it’s like when someone rains a bunch of crazy down on you.

    “Hopefully it will help all the ones who don’t hop on board with me the chance to experience what it’s like when someone rains a bunch of crazy down on you.”

    Except they won’t think it’s crazy? I get e-mails from my Dad regularly that aren’t much different. Surely anyone could catch the subtle snark of pointing out the irony of those who insist they know the law better than those who study it – but don’t count on it.

    Sorry, not crazy enough. Seriously, go ahead and post it. No one will disagree and you’ll net double digit likes.

  • Loqi

    How long until someone suggests the entire conservative media machine has been doing this since at least the 50s, and they just keep going because it’s so profitable?

    I DEMAND to see JT’s birth certificate, death certificate, adoption certificate, college transcripts, vaccination records, 8 years of tax records, FDA stamp, certificate of authenticity, homeowner association dues receipts, end-user license agreement, and blood test results.

    A while back I responded to a troofer (saying planes didn’t really hit the trade towers) that just before the planes hit, the people on board were all transported to US base on the far side of the moon; he told me that was ridiculous.

  • Glodson

    You mock, but Not Human Obama is the Muslim Atheist Clone of the gay butt baby of Marx and Mohammed made to wage jihad against true white America for Commie Hippies with his secert army of Ninja Lesbians!!!

    PROVE ME WRONG!!!!!!!

    • Loqi

      For commie *fascist* hippies. You always have to put communism and fascism together. They go together like ketchup and milkshakes.

      • Glodson

        The only fascist we allow here is YHWH, and his kid. And that ghost fella. They are all the same, you know. And they have all the power. And they only torture you forever in a nightmarish lake of fire because they love you so much. And they need money.

        Deposit in my paypal account and have faith that they will get it and I won’t spend the money on hookers and blackjack.

    Teemo?

    • Loqi

      Using the image of Teemo helps deal with nutters because they so often underestimate the power of the Scout’s Code.

  • Alvaro

    This is a brilliant idea! And the more people on those sites that we can convince of those insane ideas, the more insane theywill look (not that they need help with that), to the point that more and more reasonable people see them for what they really are.

    • Zinc Avenger (Sarcasm Tags 3.0 Compliant)

      Are you sure this isn’t being done already?

  • John Horstman

    You’re playing a dangerous game, my friend. What if Obama’s spies see that and come take you away, too? :-D
