Yes, for a few more hours it is the birthday of Wo'C CEO and MVP, Scott C.!
As most of you can attest, Scott is one of the wittiest people on the Internet - fast with a quip, possessing a way with words like few others, and with an unrivaled knowledge of history, politics, and the wingiest nuts in existence. And many of you also know that he is a caring, compassionate man: a guy who remembers birthdays, helps those in need, and fights for the underdog and overcat. And a good friend. But did you know that he loves bad movies, MST3K, and old-timey stuff? Okay, you did. Fine. Then here's Renew America's Cliff Kincaid with "Can marijuana fuel jihad?" I am having problems with Blogger, so just pretend that the parts in quotation marks are indented. We join Cliff already in progress.
"It may be too early to draw a direct connection between jihad, marijuana, and mass murder,"
No, it's never too early to say, "The Tsarnaev brothers were terrorists, they used marijuana, and so marijuana causes mass murder." So, let's find some more examples to further your theory.
"We also have the case of Michael Brown, the black thug who was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri. An autopsy and toxicology report finds that he had marijuana in his system and had been a user for some time."
So, there you have it: having used marijuana at some time in the past causes the police to shoot you, and the wingnut press to label you a "black thug." Although I wonder how many "white thugs" Cliff has written about.
"There is no hint of jihad here, only anti-police violence."
Yes, kids, it's Opposite Day!
"But the role of marijuana in this violent confrontation deserves extensive coverage, not just a footnote. Trayvon Martin, the black juvenile delinquent shot and killed after he assaulted anti-crime activist George Zimmerman, also smoked marijuana regularly."
Cliff, if you're just going to say idiotic things in any effort to get attention, I have no more time for you!
So, on to the ceremonial sexy birthday lizard:
And because Scott birthday is extra-special, here's the sexy Ann Coulter birthday lizard:
Now, won't you all join me in wishing Scott the happiest of birthdays!
