Witchy Woman

Lindaman writes:

On a 1999 episode of "Politically Incorrect" Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell said that she dabbled in witchcraft as a teenager. And now in 2010, the Left has made that an issue as a means to paint O'Donnell as crazy and unsuitable for public office. Granted, the Left has no problem delving into an opponent's past for dirt,

Unlike you with your William Ayers bullshit?

but this situation seems a bit odd.

The reason the situation is odd is because of the Left's prior positions on religious matters. When it comes to the Catholic Church, the Left takes them to task for their opposition to birth control, their position on gays, and the molesting priest controversies. Their methods may not always be the most articulate (like throwing condoms at Catholic priests during a gay rights parade),


but there is a kernel of legitimacy in their criticism of the Catholic Church. Having said that, the Left has extrapolated the actions of a few to malign the entire Catholic Church.

Compare that to the Left's defense of the Islamic "community center" within blocks of Ground Zero. In that case, they take exactly the opposite position that they do with the Catholic Church. They say that the actions of a few do not damn an entire religion, even though the actions of those few are clearly violent, anti-woman, and anti-child (the very things they criticize the Catholic Church for being, I might add). When it comes to Muslims practicing their faith, the Left is right on the front lines defending their freedom of religion.

Are liberals trying to shut down a Catholic Church at Ground Zero? Until they do, STFU.

ALL religions are retarded. But you won't see any inconsistency with how they are treated.

Then, there's the Left's position on atheism. When it comes to Leftists like Michael Newdow, the Left supports a freedom from religion, oddly enough using the same First Amendment that they use to defend the Islamic "community center." Their position is that the separation of church and state (a phrase that does not appear in the First Amendment, by the way) means that any entity with ties to government cannot promote a single religion because it "establishes" a religion. (Logically, it doesn't, of course...)

The government can't endorse one religion over another. Sorry that you hate that so much.

Atheists may benefit from that, but atheism isn't even a religion, so that's irrelevant.

Now, we have the Left's mocking of witchcraft as "crazy" by proxy through O'Donnell. I've known Wiccans in my life, and they are far from crazy. They are, however, among the nicest, most intelligent, most articulate people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Too bad most Wiccans are granola-eating leftists, which according to Lindaman means they have a deep-seated hatred of America.

You may disagree with their religion, but that doesn't give anyone sanction to mock their faith. The Left using O'Donnell's dabbling in Wicca as a political football to kick around is hypocritical and disgusting.

Hypocritical? Disgusting? It's knee-slapping hilarious!

Is there any doubt that if a Leftist dabbled in Wicca and a conservative called him or her crazy, the Left would lash out at the conservative? But when it's a Republican, the Left leads the mob seeking to "burn the witch" politically.

Well, she said WITCHCRAFT and SATANISM as if they were synonymous. That's hilarious stuff. Drop-dead funny!

The Left practices situational ethics on a daily basis, but now they're practicing situational freedom of religion. With Islam, the Left screams about the freedom of religion, with Wicca and the Catholic Church, the Left screams about the freedom to mock religion, and with atheism, the Left screams about the freedom from religion.

And in each case, the Left's screaming is intellectually inconsistent.

Not inconsistent at all, Liar. O'Donnell didn't say "I was a Wiccan for a little while." She said she "dabbled in WITCHCRAFT". Do you know any real life Wiccans that would say that? I know real-life Wiccans, and they are rolling their eyes at her nonsensical comments.

Yes, Wiccans are usually smart and Wicca is a very peaceful religion that has a "do no harm" attitude. I'd rather have a Wiccan president than a Christian president, even.

But O'Donnell is NOT a Wiccan. She's just a fucking idiot. She doesn't know the difference between Satanism and Wicca! She can't tell the difference between a pentagram and a pentacle! It's not that O'Donnell is a Wiccan, or was a Wiccan. It's because she called it "dabbling in witchcraft."

Do you ever notice that, yet again, right-wingers never ask the source for this? When it comes to black people, right-wingers never ask black people, etc. In this case, they never ask real Wiccans.

Well, real Wiccans think O'Donnell is an empty-headed twat. You see, that's why right-wingers didn't ask.

Basically, O'Donnell is a loopy, flakey, batshit airhead. In other words, a typical ignorant extreme right-winger. And of course, the extreme right-wingers will always support the craziest airheads. Because you HAVE to be just a little bit crazy to believe in the ridiculous things the extreme Conservative Christians believe in.

But is this any shock? Christians are, overall, the least-informed about religion. The most informed are... well... atheists and agnostics. You can talk about "situational ethics" all you like. Nothing is inconsistent here.

So yeah, people are going to point and laugh at this ditzy cunt. Not because she's a Wiccan, but because she actually thinks she was.
