“[Radio host Al] Franken also imitated a priest giving Communion, saying "Body of Christ" when an imagined pedophile priest was in line but "not for you" when pro-choice politicians came up,” according to Michael Goodwin of the New York Daily News.
This Franken mockery of the Eucharist on Air America radio proves he is an idiot and possibly an anti-Catholic bigot. This ridicule reminds one of the Nazi propaganda that mocked the most sacred religious Jewish customs. The Jewish religion holds God’s very name in the highest respect and reverence.
The radio host, who claims to be Jewish, in the introduction of his new book Lies And the Lying Liars has a disrespectful mock conservation with the Holy One of the Old Testament. Here‘s an sample Franken‘s mockery:“’TOTAL BULL____,’ God said. ’ START BY ATTACKING THEM. HE’S [former CBS reporter Bernard Goldberg who wrote a book about liberal bias] CLEARLY A DISGRUNTLED FORMER EMPLOYEE, AND SHE [Ann Coulter who wrote a book about liberal bias] JUST LIES. BY THE WAY, THERE’S SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH HER. ’”
To put it mildly, Franken’s purpose for writing his book was to “prove” that there isn’t a liberal bias. According to the radio host “[a]lmost every fact in this book [Lies And the Lying Liars] is correct. Either that, or it’s a joke.”
Franken’s Alleged Facts and Humor Here’s another example of radio host ’s alleged humor in his book on page 239:
“’Give it back! [Clarence] Thomas’s squeal broke their reverie.’ Give me back my magazine.’‘
Kerry and Gore jumped topsides and saw Ashcroft holding a cheaply printed magazine featuring teenage Vietnamese prostitutes.’”
I assumed this “joke” refers back to the alleged and “totally uncorroborated charges of off-color language against” the then African American Supreme Court nominee ClarenceThomas.
Franken thinks its funny to promote “totally uncorroborated charges“ against the African American Thomas, but is fuming in his book because of “[c]redible rape charges” against his great hero Bill Clinton who sexually abused women (imagine the media indignation if sex abusing priests had used cigars), allegedly raped a woman, obstructed justice and lie under oath.
The radio host is outraged on page 138 because Bill O’ Reilly “deplored not only the Clinton’s alleged rape of Broaddrick, but also the mainstream medias’ rape of the American public in failing to report the alleged rape.”
Brent Bozell shows the “double-standard” of the media in this case best when he wrote:
“Credible rape charges are not news when levied against a liberal president, no matter how grave those charges are. But totally uncorroborated charges of off-color language against a conservative Supreme Court nominee totally dominated the news for a solid week.The national media’s double-standard has descended from the merely awful to the absurd.”[http://www.mediaresearch.org/press/1999/press19990308.asp]
The continued media hypocrisy was recently displayed again when the Los Angeles Times put the allegations of sexual harassment against Schwarzenegger on the front page of the paper, while it buried Juanita Broaddrick’s 1999 rape accusation against Bill Clinton and refused to publish George Will’s column about Broaddrick’s allegation.Now Franken did say that “[a]lmost every fact in this book is correct. Either that, or it’s a joke.”
Franken is the “Teensiest Bit Selective”
Or maybe it’s not fair and balanced to Franken to compare the media handling of Clinton’s “[c]redible rape charges” vs. the “uncorroborated charges of off-color language” against Thomas. Maybe it’s “the teensiest bit selective.”
Al in his continued attempt to show that there is not a liberal bias on page 33 says “from among the hundreds of thousands of hours of broadcast news over the last three decades Bernie is able to coble together a few instances of slanted reporting. But even when Goldberg seems to have a point, it still feels just the teensiest bit selective.”
However, the radio host in his chapter called “I Bitch-Slap Bernie Goldberg” in his rigorist fact finding effort was the “teensiest bit selective” when he forgot to mention that Goldberg in his book Bias considered that the media’s anti-conservative bias against the great “social” issues such as abortion and homosexuality to be even greater than against the “Democrat-versus-Republican sort” of issues.
He said, “Why were we doing PR for the AIDS lobby by spreading an epidemic of fear, telling our viewers about how AIDS was about to break out into mainstream heterosexual America, which simply was not true?”
I guess the “I Bitch-Slap Bernie Goldberg” chapter was another joke unless Franken thinks it’s a fact that intravenous drug abusers and homosexuals are part of mainstream heterosexual America.
Franken’s and “the Most-Gay Presidential Candidate Ever” John Kerry’s BuddiesWhich brings us back to the radio host’s “joke” about a priest giving Communion to pedophile priests, but not to pro-choice politicians. Why are Franken and “the most-gay presidential candidate ever” John Kerry helping their buddies in the radical gay movement and liberal psychological establishment to cover up the fact that the Catholic scandal is overwhelmingly a homosexual sex abuse scandal?
The cover up tactic is to say that the scandal is about pedophilia and then claim that pedophilia is not associated with homosexuality.The gay activist expert and psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover, who wrote the book "Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth," which the Congressional Record of May 1996 called the "best book on homosexuality written in our times," states this is a standard spin. He writes:
"Activists are aware of the adverse effect on the gay-rights movement that could result if people perceived any degree of routine association between homosexuality and pedophilia…They have denied this association by focusing on the (true) fact that—in absolute numbers—heterosexuals commit more child molestation than homosexuals." "But careful studies show that pedophilia is far more common among homosexuals than heterosexuals."
According to an article by Register Correspondent Ellen Rossini, "Although heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals by a ratio of at least 20 to 1, homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of the total number of child sex offenses," said Tim Dailey, a senior fellow for culture studies at the Family Research Council. (The National Catholic Register, September 15-21, 2002) [http://www.ncregister.com/register_News/091002sem.htm]
With the above in mind I said in my book The Hidden Axis of Evil: The Clinton, Sex Abuse and the Aborting of America:
"If [the liberal “Catholic” organization] VOTF and the liberal bishops really want to end the church scandal, then they have to stop covering up the gay part of 90 percent of the scandal [The February 2004 National Review Board Report says 81 percent of the victims were males]. If VOTF and [VOTF’s Rev.] Doyle really want to end the pedophilia part of the scandal, then they have to expose the fraudulent scientific data eliminating penalties for sexual abusers and the Kinseyan [psychological] ‘experts’ who are advising the bishops."
It is Franken’s and VOTF's radical gay friends in the priesthood, who are there contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church, who have caused the overwhelming majority of the scandal. It’s also your friends in the liberal psychological establishment with their fraudulent scientific data who are eliminating penalties for sexual abusers and who advised the bishops to allowed homosexuals priests into their dioceses.
Unfortunately, it also isn’t a fact that the vast majority of Catholic priests are not giving Communion to pro-choice politicians. Sadly it’s not a joke that the vast majority of American bishops are appear to be okay with politicians- who vote for killing unborn babies- receiving the Eucharist. This despite the Catholic Church law (Canon 915), which states that the Eucharist should be withheld from “Catholic” public figures who advocate abortion.[http://www.all.org/crusade/canon915.htm]
What is the Real Agenda of Franken’s “Humor”?
Nor is it a joke that Franken and “Catholic” John Kerry support even late-term abortion, which should really be called infanticide. Is it a fact that Al did a warm up “comedian” act for Planned Parenthood in 2000. [http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a38d93ec50ced.htm]
Above all, it is a fact that Franken’s jokes “deadens, instead of sharpening, the intellect.“ It is appropriate that your “sense of humor” is associated with Planned Parenthood's participation in the killing of millions of unborn babies and the sale of their body parts, which is a grim reminder that PP’s founder Margaret Sanger promoted eugenics/Nazi teachings on the need to eliminate the world of "inferior people." [http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a38d93ec50ced.htm]
C. S. Lewis in his book The Screwtape Letters describes the real agenda of Franken’s “humor” best. In this book his character, who is a senior evil spirit, says:
"But Flippancy is the best of all. In the first place it is very economical. Only a clever human can make a real Joke about virtue, or indeed about anything else; any of them can be trained to talk as if virtue were funny. Among flippant people the Joke is always assumed to have been made. No one actually makes it; but every serious subject is discussed in a manner which implies that they have already found a ridiculous side to it. If prolonged, the habit of Flippancy builds up around a man the finest armour-plating against the Enemy [God] that I know, and it is quite free from the dangers inherent in the other sources of laughter. It is a thousand miles away from joy; it deadens, instead of sharpening, the intellect; and it excites no affection between those who practice it."
