Believe it or not, Kalli Jo/Angry Mouse's front-page story about how WorldNutDaily has turned on Donald Trump isn't the craziest and most outrageous thing Joseph Farah has done this Memorial Day weekend. Not by a longshot. In his latest commentary, Farah takes a page from Jerry Falwell's playbook and suggests that the Joplin tornado--and indeed, the entire recent rash of crazy weather in the Midwest--was retribution for Obama's suggestion that Israel return to its pre-1967 borders.
Bible prophecy may have a bad name in the light of Harold Camping's misguided date-setting, but the biggest sign of the end may have been overlooked in all the rapture hysteria of last weekend.
Once again, we've seen the U.S. hit with a series of deadly superstorms following Barack Obama's pledge to return Israel to pre-1967 borders.
Just days after Obama insisted Israel must give up lands it won through military victory with its enemies, some 200 people were killed by a tornado in Joplin, Mo.
Farah then doubles down on the crazy and callousness, saying that Hurricane Katrina happened right after Bush forced Israel to pull out of the Gaza Strip. He quotes from Bill Koenig, author of a book that argues 10 of the costliest insurance events in American history--as well as six of the seven costliest hurricanes and three of the four biggest tornado outbreaks--came after American officials suggested Israel give up some land.
I'd really like to know where Farah goes shopping, because I don't think there's a store anywhere in this country that sells cojones that big. He actually has the gall to write this garbage while people in Joplin are still looking for the missing, and the funerals are just getting underway? Saying stuff like this proves that at bottom, there is no substantive difference between WorldNutDaily and Westboro Baptist Church.
Maybe it's because Farah, like most fundies, spends most of his time in a cocoon, but apparently he doesn't remember how Falwell and Robertson got smacked down hard for their outrageous claim that gays and abortion providers helped cause 9-11. To my mind, Farah deserves the same treatment.
If you have Facebook, you can register your objections to this claptrap at the article page. As often as I read WorldNetDaily (the better to know what the wingers are thinking), I've never left a comment on a story there. But this was just too outrageous to ignore.
