Loons on the Left

Updated August 4, 2010


"To cave to popular sentiment would be to hand a victory to the terrorists. No neighborhood in our city is off limits to God's love and mercy."


"If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something."


--MICHAEL BLOOMBERG



"If you want to get serious about it, these guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change are almost unpatriotic. It's really, they're denying science. So they're very happy to have the weather forecast be accurate within a few hours, but they're displeased or un-enchanted by predictions of the world getting warmer. It's really, it shakes me up."


--BILL NYE



"Obama's critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let 'em know that if they aren't with you, they are against you, and will pay the price."


--ROLAND MARTIN



"TeaBagger crowd: polite. The nutjobs who were bussed to Town Halls didn't get their way paid to Sarah [Palin]'s $100,000 speech."


--ROGER EBERT



"We are not exactly impotent little babies. [Israeli jets] have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch? ... We have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren't just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a 'Liberty' in reverse."


--ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI



"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in joy of a new beginning, we ask You to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."


--REV. JOSEPH LOWERY


"Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades [will lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House]."


--JESSE JACKSON



"I am not resigning now because I have done nothing wrong."


"I've got this thing. And it's f---ing golden. I'm just not giving it up for f---ing nothing. I'm not going to do it. I can always use it. I can parachute me there."


"F--- [Obama]. For nothing? F--- him."


--ROD BLAGOJEVICH



"[H]old up that f---ing Cubs s---. F--- them."


--PATTI BLAGOJEVICH



"This time of year is the Winter Solstice. It's a natural season that Christians basically stole this season from us human beings by using the hate speech of the nativity scene which damns all of us to hell if we don't bow down before that little baby who became the dictator. What a horrible insult to what it means to be a human being!"


--DAN BARKER



"Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president."


"It's time to put real pressure on Rush Limbaugh. His show is broadcast on Armed Forces Radio, and this time we are going to go straight to the lifeblood of Rush's show -- Congress. Congress has the power to remove Rush Limbaugh from Armed Forces Radio, and it won't be as easy for elected officials to ignore our call."


--WESLEY CLARK



"We cannot win with eggheads and African-Americans. OK, that is the Dukakis Coalition, which carried ten states and gave us four years of the first George Bush."


"My party's the Democratic Party. But the sort of kook right, not the responsible Republicans, but the fringe, the Rush Limbaugh crowd, likes to call my party the Democrat Party. They think it's some sort of insult or something. And frankly, I guess it is insulting."


--PAUL BEGALA



"So, I stand before you, a vagina-friendly Mayor. I am in!"


--RAY NAGIN



"The United States is a liberal country. The majority of Americans are liberal."


--MICHAEL MOORE



"I am so grateful that [Hillary Clinton] hasn't been trained to kill anybody."


--GLORIA STEINEM



"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation."


--AL SHARPTON



"Zarqawi felt my son's breath on his hand as he held the knife against his throat. Zarqawi had to look in his eyes when he did it. George Bush sits there glassy-eyed in his office with pieces of paper and condemns people to death. That to me is a real terrorist."


--MICHAEL BERG



"I'm not going to vote with my vagina."


--MARIANNE WILLIAMSON



"Today, I want to briefly address a private matter. I have acted in a way that violated the obligations to my family and that violates my, or any, sense of right and wrong."


"I will be coming after you (John Whitehead, former Goldman Sachs chief). You will pay the price. This is only the beginning, and you will pay dearly for what you have done."


"Listen, I'm a f---ing steamroller, and I'll roll over you and anybody else!"


--ELIOT SPITZER



"Sure, [Huckabee is] a staunch pro-life person, but he isn't perceived as being hateful as other people who are pro-life."


--ROLAND MARTIN



"But as a national candidate, the stumpy, uptight McCain is a lemon. Oy, that weaselly voice and those dated locutions and stilted intonations. Who needs a weird old coot with a short fuse in the White House?"


--CAMILLE PAGLIA



"Secretary of State Colin Powell lied about WMDs. That was the true tragedy of race: a black man lying for a corrupt white administration that was using him as a token, much as they use Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice now.


Obama is also a token -- of our incomplete progress toward an interracial society. I have nothing against him except his inexperience. Many black voters agree. They understand tokenism and condescension."


--ERICA JONG



"Sure, [Huckabee is] a staunch pro-life person, but he isn't perceived as being hateful as other people who are pro-life."


--ROLAND MARTIN



"As we enter the eighth year of the Bush-Cheney administration, I have belatedly and painfully concluded that the only honorable course for me is to urge the impeachment of the president and the vice president."


--GEORGE McGOVERN



"Talk to you later, Buckwheat."


--CARLA BLANCHARD DARTEZ



"September 11 was terrible, but if one goes back over the history of the IRA, what happened to the Americans wasn't that terrible. Some Americans will think I'm crazy. Many people died, two prominent buildings fell, but it was neither as terrible nor as extraordinary as they think. They're a very naive people, or they pretend to be."


--DORIS LESSING



"The fact of the matter is that when Bill O'Reilly gets Juan Williams, the eternal happy negro, on his show to congratulate him on his racism, that's like Hugh Hefner getting a stripper to come on the show and tell him that he's not a sexist. The fact is that Bill O'Reilly has consistently degraded, demeaned and devalued every aspect of black culture and he can't get away from that."


--BOYCE WATKINS



"Get rid of all these rotten politicians that we have in Washington, who are nothing more than corporate toadies. This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors."


--ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR.



"You know we're f---ed."


--MIKE NIFONG



"I hear about Tony Snow and say to myself, well, stand up every day, lie to the American people at the behest of your dictator-esque boss and well, how could a cancer NOT grow in you. Work for Fox News, spinning the truth in to a billion knots and how can your gut not rot?"


--CHARLES KAREL BOULEY



"Snow, despite being fairly smarmy, is not actually one of the individuals currently f---ing everything up that we’d happily say cancer is too good for, so we wish him a speedy and full recovery."


--ANA MARIE COX



"If we could possibly remove George Bush from the White House, the world would greatly benefit."


"The Bush administration and the Nazi and Communist regimes all engaged in the politics of fear ... Indeed the Bush administration has been able to improve on the techniques used by the Nazi and Communist propaganda machines by drawing on the innovations of the advertising and marketing industries."


--GEORGE SOROS



"Blind faith in bad leaders is not patriotism. A patriot does not tell people to refrain from speaking out in the name of politeness or for the sake of being a good host; or to show slavish, blind obedience and deference to a dishonest, war-mongering human-rights-violating president."


--ROCKY ANDERSON



"As committed as I am to bringing the troops home, I am as much committed to seeing [President Bush] investigated, impeached, ejected from office, and imprisoned in the same cell with Saddam for crimes against humanity."


"The biggest terrorist is George W. Bush."


"And we are standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters, American coalition, and Iraqis who don't have enough clean water to drink, who don't have enough food to eat, who can get killed when they go to the marketplace to shop for their family, who can get raped by our soldiers just living, whose families can be killed.


"This war is a war crime, and our soldiers trying to survive are committing war crimes. We need to bring our troops home. We need to do everything we can to save our soldiers and to save the people of Iraq from our George III."


--CINDY SHEEHAN



"The man who, how do I phrase this diplomatically, who will put a bullet between the president's eyes if he could get away with it."


--ALAN HEVESI



"My wife was not a clandestine officer the day that Bob Novak blew her identity."


--JOE WILSON



"It can be said, truly said, that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq. They are defending all the Arabs and they are defending all the people of the world against American hegemony....It's not the Muslims who are sick. It's Bush and Blair and Berlusconi who are sick."


"[The assassination of Tony Blair by a suicide bomber] would be morally justified [as revenge for the war on Iraq]. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."


--GEORGE GALLOWAY (Note: Proof positive that Galloway is a Leftist.)



"The Republican Party would have the American flag and the swastika flying side by side."


--JULIAN BOND
