The Left Has Killed a Billion People

It must be true — a teabagger said it. Judson Phillips, Grand Teatard of Tea Party Nation, told his followers:

“I detest and despise everything the Left stands for. How anybody can endorse and embrace an ideology that has killed a billion people in the last century is beyond me.”

Whew! That’s a lot of people. So, all billion of them were killed by, what, affordable health care? Workers’ safety regulations? Federal agencies whose job is to ensure safe food, clean air and drinkable water?

Judson Phillips was sharing his inside knowledge at a gathering of the teajobs in Wisconsin on Saturday. They were demonstrating in favor of the Koch Brothers and their useful idiots in the Wisconsin legislature.

As entertaining as it is to hear Judson Phillips gurgling out his retarded comments, it’s also kind of scary. Given the nature of his audience — some of those people might actually believe what he told them, and they might go around mindlessly repeating it.

Teabaggers beget more teabaggers.

Tom, TPMMuckraker made clear what this mean-spirited dirtbag is really all about back on Jan. 13, 2010.

"Smith said that fellow activists soon urged Phillips to turn the group into a non-profit and set up a PayPal account that linked to a bank account for the organization. But, said Smith, 'he kept dragging his feet.'"

"Then, said Smith, Phillips -- who in his law practice specializes in DUI cases -- abruptly announced in a radio interview that Tea Party Nation would operate as a for-profit corporation. And he did set up a PayPal account to sell merchandise from the group's website -- but he connected it to his wife's bank account.

"Smith said that when Phillips was asked why he was setting up the group as a for-profit entity, he replied that it had to be done that way because President Obama planned to ban non-profits. And Phillips said the use of his wife's PayPal account was only temporary."

The Smith mentioned is a Nashville Web site designer who fell in with Phillips when he was starting Tea Party Nation. Smith soon realized Phillips is primarily a hustler, whatever his demented beliefs might be.

Among Phillips' beliefs, BTW, is that people who rent should be denied the right to vote. What a POS.

Only a billion? Hell, there's 7 billion on the planet at any given moment.

What's the fuss? Just a question but, if I remember correctly, the Nazis were finding it very difficult to murder 5 million, over several years and they had it down to an absolute mechanical process. So what I would like to hear from old Jud baby is, what was the process? That is seeing as how 1 billion is 1000 million, if my elementary school math serves me accurately.

He's not alone:

I remind my Catholic friends that Pope John Paul blamed Atheist in a Speech for all the world's wars, corruptions, and diseases.

That's close to a billion isn't it?

What Erik said!

I would submit that religious fundamentalism, which threatens to subsume the right wing (if it has not already) has killed at least that many during the last couple of thousand years.

Phillips should be careful what he's saying. A billion is a big number. More than any of us can count, and certainly more than he is likely able to conceive of.

More projection. He and his kind (as in, Hitler, Ataturk, Kim Il Sung, and various other xenophobic sociopaths) have certainly killed that many. His attempts to dangle shiny things in front of us don't change the facts.

Really, I'd figured the number would be in the trillions considering Rightwads' habit of counting every sperm as a human life.

I mean, by that logic, I've killed at least three billion people this week.

SW: Thanks for the information. I remember when some asshole said only property owners should vote, but I didn't remember that was Judson Phillips. Small world.

jadedj: I guess that means "the Left" is 200 times more murderous than the Nazis :)

Erik: Between atheists and leftists, the human race has been practically decimated.

Snave: A billion is probably too big a number for someone like Judson Phillips to even begin to grasp.

JR: Unfortunately those shiny things have a mesmerizing effect on too many dumb people.

Suzan: Good point. Rightwing fanatics think anyone who isn't quite far enough to the right is a Communist.

Thomas: He probably meant trillions but a billion was the largest numerical unit he could think of.

Anonymous: LOL.
