11:15 pm: No. Just. No.
Bill O'Rielly, number one provider of news for a huge portion of our country says, "I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship."

Meanwhile, Ahmadinejad, the current leader of Iran, says in a speech to Columbia University students that more research is needed in order to determine if the Holocaust actually happened. At all.

Some days, being reincarnated as a fluffy, well loved lap cat seems like a mighty fine alternative to humanity.

I've always said that I want to come back as one of my pets. Some days, I'd like it more than others, especially days when the idiots take over the airways.

O'Rielly is a fucktard, and Ahmadinejad... well, he's one more fanatic in a country run by fanatics. Except that in Iran, he's considered moderate. *boggles*

The world is a scary place.

I got in a HUGE fight with my mother today, because she REFUSES to believe that what O'Biley said was racist.

I tried to explain to her -- He expected the restaurant to be a zoo because it was owned and primarily patronized by black people.

I'm just... how can that NOT be racist?

Frankly, Ahmadinejad reminds me of fucking Bush, only more willing to just outright kill people he doesn't like. He's got that same smug, smarmy, evil little smirk and attitude that makes me want to punch him in the face.

And then, you know, drop him into a vat of acid or something.

I could not believe when I heard what O'Rielly said, and then on the Today Show, they were DEFENDING him. That phrasing made it seriously clear what he expected to see, and of course, it was racist.

I've gotten the impression that Ahmadinejad enjoys shocking and annoying and in general, being an ass. I'm glad he spoke--I like knowing that about him.

I'm glad more people got exposed to the asshattery in both cases, certainly.

Although the responses have been not altogether satisfying. To say the least? (Check my next post.)
