Funnier than it is offensive."I hope [Justice Clarence Thomas'] wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that's how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person."
-- USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux, November 4, 1994 on the PBS program "To the Contrary."
If God deems it so, afterall, it's his virus..."[If] there is retributive justice, [Jesse Helms will] get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it."
-- Compassionate, liberal Nina Totenberg responding to Inside Washington TV host Tina Gulland.
A comedian is there for laughs and shock value, I hardly think it fair to hold them to the same standards as a pundit or politician."[F]or a few brief moments, America held the hope that O.J. Simpson had murdered [Florida Secretary of State] Katherine Harris."
-- Bill Maher, host of ABC's Politically Incorrect, speaking on national television.
Stupid wording, however smart and true his assessment turned out to be."I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years."
-- President Lyndon Baines Johnson, speaking to two governors about his true motivations regarding his support of civil rights legislation, while aboard Air Force One.
Not the smartest wording, but it was in private and in a moment of anger against an obviously ill-informed critic, so it's hardly reason to hang him."Write down the name of that motherf---er. When I'm back in office, he's a dead man."
-- Bill Clinton, after a critic told him, during Clinton's second campaign for governor, he was nothing but a "two-bit politician" and then walked away. Clinton made the comment to a campaign aide. Samuel Wilson, former political worker for Clinton said, "I remember his look. It was cold. I don't want to think he wanted to kill him literally, but I'm sure some sort of revenge was inflicted later on."
We've all wanted to kill a kid or two at one time or another."I got the impression that instead of going out to shoot birds, I should go out and shoot the kids who shoot birds."
-- Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace, as quoted in Access to Energy, December 1982.
A political statement that hardly inspires hate or anything dangerous like that from a man that isn't a religious leader to the world."We honor groups by race, we honor groups by gender, we honor groups by ethnicity, and we honor groups by their sexual orientation. But there's one group we never, ever honor on our campus, and that's the American military."
-- Professor George Zilbergeld, Montclair, New Jersey State University, during a conference in the summer of 2004.
Taken out of context, though a strange comment to make in-context nonetheless."I think America has to bleed. I think the corpses have to pile up. I think American boys have to die again. Let the mothers weep and mourn."
-- Oliver Stone in 1987 upon receiving the Torch of Liberty Award from the American Civil Liberties Union.
Gross but understandable behavior all things considered."[Spitting into the food] gave me a psychological gratification."
-- Jesse Jackson, in a November 1969 Life magazine article, admitting that when he worked as a waiter at a hotel in Greenville, South Carolina, he spat into the soups and salads of white customers.
You're quoting Ward Churchill now?"[To even the score with America, Muslim terrorists] would, at a minimum, have to blow up about 300,000 more buildings and kill something on the order of 7.5 million people."
-- University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill.
It's a rap group, they should be praised for their restraint."Can anyone shoot this man?"
-- The caption under an image of George W. Bush with a laser sight targeting his head, as shown on a Norway rapper group (Gatas [Street] Parliament) website, the address of which translates to "Kill him now".
In any case, what exactly are you trying to prove? That you can string together a bunch of quotes, most of them not all that bad, by liberals (even though this isn't a liberal issue) to compete with the idiocy from the moral majority? That there are idiots in this world whom I didnt link to? I'm incapable of understanding what exactly the purpose behind this post was. It didn't accomplish/prove much of anything.
