GOP Congressman Trent Franks is a Domestic Terrorist: Calls Obama “an enemy of humanity”

by Ben Hoffman

“Obama’s first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers’ money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries,” said Frank. “Now, I got to tell you, if a president will do that, there’s almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn’t be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can’t do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity.”

This nut Trent Franks is also a birther, claiming that Obama is not legitimately a president. What it comes down to is inciting hatred of our democratically elected president. It’s one thing to be critical of policy, but this is getting dangerous. What he’s doing is inciting violence and it is domestic terrorism.

  1. So you agree with Obama funding planned parenthood in other countries? With our crazy debt, can’t take care of our own, but we should fund abortion for others? Yea, he’s a whacko…..(Obama)

    • Better than funding religious nut-job groups. But I can understand why you’re offended. He’s one of your own: uneducated, scared, angry, and for an authoritarian government.

    • Absolutely, we should be funding family planning clinics in other countries. Overpopulation is a leading cause of global poverty, and giving women power over their own bodies is necessary to combating this problem. Besides, by educating women about birth control practices and family planning, they are much less likely to seek out illegal abortions, which are too often unsanitary and unsafe.

      No one likes abortion, but we need to be realistic about the serious problems facing other parts of the world. The personal morality of a few people in America, the richest country in the world, must not get in the way of doing everything we can to help others. People need to look beyond their own borders.

      P.S. Planned Parenthood doesn’t just do abortions. They’re not an abortion factory. I’ve had to go to them myself for general health issues when I’ve had NO HEALTH INSURANCE.

      • There is always some moral “we’ve got to help them” mentality from liberals instead of looking at the obvious. When your own country is on the verge of poverty itself from out of control spending, you don’t spend what you don’t have to fight poverty somewhere else. Liberalism continues to fail because they don’t see the obvious…the country is broke and people aren’t going to take the spending anymore. People think the tea parties are about healthcare, (libs think it’s about race), but it’s really about being stupid and spending money you don’t have.

      • What about the billions Bush spent on faith based programs overseas? Talk about a waste of money!

        But I agree with one of your statements: tea parties are about being stupid! Ha!

  2. As usual Ben, you present “Bush did it” as your argument, then attack those that don’t agree. Typical lib response.

  3. I will mention again, that the Tea party movement sprang up from frustration with the Bush administration and the out of control spending. Presenting the spending of Bush as an excuse to keep spending is kinda like a 6 year old arguing that because his sister broke the rules, he should be allowed to do it too. I have yet to see a liberal response that doesn’t use that tactic and personal attacks as their entire argument. It’s a really weak one to keep presenting, but I guess when you have nothing real to go on, that’s what you do. Notice I haven’t once insulted you with petty name calling and labeling? I don’t have to, the facts are on my side.

    • What name calling? I was agreeing with your statement:

      “People think the tea parties are about healthcare, (libs think it’s about race), but it’s really about being stupid”

      You don’t have “facts” on your side. All you have is spin and propaganda. That’s why you’re so angry and scared.

  4. I’m angry? Hell, I’m a rich republican…according to you. One only needs to see your site to see all the name calling and labeling they would ever want to see.

  5. No anger at all. I work hard and prosper and I’m happy…all things liberals hate.

    • Do you really believe that liberals hate hard work and prosperity? What about Google? They’re one of the most liberal companies in the country and one of the most successful. I’m doing fairly well, although I don’t work nearly as hard as I used to. I’m getting old. πŸ™‚

      What kind of work do you do, if you don’t mind me asking.

    • LOL! I actually “laughed out loud” at this (and yet I still found it necessary to write LOL??). I think it’s hilarious that conservatives think that progressives don’t like hard work and prosperity. Those are the EXACT things we like! We just want more people to have the opportunity to be able to realize their dreams.

      • Yes sleepy girl, you like hard work so you can take most of it and redistribute it to those that don’t work. What a concept.

  6. Judging by the nanny state mentality, it’s hard to believe most liberals want to work. They want government handouts to rule the day! I’m a software developer in the RV industry, and I also work with (ironically enough) google on their mapping technology. They may be a liberal company at the top, but they are loaded with conservatives that do most of the real work.

    I am currently in the process of making my entire home solar and hopefully will be completely off the grid soon. Yes, a green conservative…who would have thought!

    • A software developer in the RV industry? For what? Navigation?

      I’m always a little wary of hiring right-wing software developers. They don’t seem to be able to process political information logically or honestly, so how could they process technical information logically and honestly? I have yet to find any on the far right who have been worth a damn.

  7. Wow, hunt, you’ve really got us libs pegged, don’t you? That’s right, we’re all socialist, welfare-state loving loonies. Um…yeah. You know what’s funny? I could argue with you until the end of the world, but you’ve got your narrow mind so completely made up that it wouldn’t make a difference. I prefer to NOT bang my head against a brick wall. πŸ™‚

    • You described yourself for me. No need to elaborate! I’m sorry, which party believes in wealth redistribution again? The definition of insanity is to repeat the same stupid stuff (spending billions on social programs) and hoping for a different result. When will libs get it that the government turns everything they touch to crap? It can’t compete with a free market. When I say government, I mean republicans too. The most prosperous times in our country’s history is when taxes were low and the government was out of the way of the free market. The more you involve government the more rights you give up. Sadly, both sides of the political spectrum are corrupt. The democrats don’t work for you, they work for the lawyers and the unions. The republicans work for big oil and pharmacy. TRUE conservatives don’t exist anymore except in the libertarian party.

      • While it may be true that everything the government touches turns to crap when it’s run by Republicans, that’s not necessarily the rule. Our military is run by the government and is the best in the world. Most people on Medicare love it. Our highway system is pretty decent. The Post Office works pretty well although it’s operating in the red now, in part due to high fuel costs.

        As far as low taxes causing prosperity, there’s no evidence to make that case. Bush lowered taxes and while we had a housing boom, the result was a doubling of the federal debt and the complete collapse of our economy.

        Clinton, on the other hand, raised taxes. What followed was the longest period of peacetime economic prosperity in U.S. history.

        Reagan cut taxes and unemployment went up during his first term. We had a bit of a recovery during his second term, but there was a deep recession at the end of the 80s that extended well into the 90s. Reagan also tripled the U.S. debt.

        So, you really can’t make any kind of case that low taxes fuels an economy. What does fuel an economy is sensible regulation and low deficit spending — two things that Republicans don’t think are important.

    • The Republican party is like a religion to right-wingers. They elevate their leaders to god-like status and their pundits to prophets. Arguing politics with them is about as futile as arguing about the existence of God. No amount of logic or facts will change their minds.

      Actually, the Republican party is more like a cult than anything.

  8. Oh, so you wanted to know what I worked in to you could insult personally? Common lib tactic. I have nothing to prove to some washed up artist. I’ve worked very hard in my profession and I’m good at it. It’s not like I would use my skills to hack into your account because I have what they call integrity. I am moving on Ben. I’ve tried to be civil with you, but you have proven to be the common liberal that attacks people personally. And if you haven’t noticed, I’m not republican. I left them after the first Bush term.

    • How did I insult you personally? And as far as me being a washed up artist, I’m not any kind of artist. I just drew those cartoons last year as a hobby. I’m a software engineer. I spent most of my career developing software on aerospace projects — some for the military, one for NASA. Now I do consulting work.

      • Oh, so you are a programmer too? Instead of wasting time on here, why not build your own Liberal Class and have it spout your tired talking points….something like this.. (this is in C#)

        public class Liberal
        {
        private int _braincells;
        private int _nitwitteryLevel;
        private int _yearsInParentsBasement;

        public Liberal(int braincells, int nitwitteryLevel, int yearsInParentsBasement)
        {
        _braincells = braincells;
        _nitwitteryLevel = nitwitteryLevel;
        _yearsInParentsBasement = yearsInParentsBasement;
        }

        public string EngageLibTalkingPoints()
        {
        ArrayList talkingPoints = new ArrayList();
        talkingPoints.Add(“Rich are evil”);
        talkingPoints.Add(“Bush did it too”);
        talkingPoints.Add(“Obama is a god”);
        talkingPoints.Add(“America sucks”);
        talkingPoints.Add(“Racist!”);
        talkingPoints.Add(“You’re an idiot”);

        //return a random talking point…it’s the basis of every lib argument
        Random rObj = new Random();
        return talkingPoints[rObj.Next(0,talkingPoints.Count -1)].ToString();

        }

        }

        //Now, just create Ben, and fire off the talking points

        Liberal ben = new Liberal(1, 200,30);
        string argument = ben.EngageLibTalkingPoints(); //engage talking points

        //of course, you choose how you throw it to the screen…in a control, or use something simple like

        Response.Write(argument);

        See how much easier that is? Have a good one Ben.

      • Hunt, your program crashed when I tried to run it. Damn Microsoft products! πŸ™‚

      • Heck, I never tried to run it…this was just off the top of my head in the comment box! You would probably need to add some references…such as System.Collections for the arraylist. I liked using C before, but I’m really into C# now.

        Think of the ease of use … would save you all the typing..you could just have it run as an auto response to any and all comments. I know you are working your old hands to the bone typing out “bush did it too”…I don’t want you to get a cramp.

      • I was kidding about trying to run it. I’m not set up for C# development, nor do I have any intention of becoming a sheep to their products. I use open source products for all my work.

        The funny thing about right-wingers is, if anyone gives valid criticism of Bush, right-wingers see it as bashing. If anyone offers valid support for left-wing policies, right-wingers see it as making Obama out to be god or the messiah.

        It’s really Rovian politics. Lie like hell and then accuse the other side of lying.

  9. I actually have to agree with you about the use of open source technologies. I have Linux on my other computer and still play around with building applications for it. Once linux get’s the driver issues worked out, I truly believe it will finally push microsoft out of the way as the big pimp daddy. I do all my flash and music work on a mac. I don’t have an allegiance to any of them. Each of them have unique advantages. Right now, C# is paying me the most. πŸ™‚

    • The problem with drivers is just that vendors don’t usually supply Linux drivers with their hardware, so it’s up to open source developers to write them. I’m running Ubuntu on an old Dell, so drivers have been available for a while.

      I have to work in Windows for a few things. I’m doing Flex/ActionScript development and the Eclipse plugin isn’t available for Linux yet. I do the back-end LAMP work on my Linux box.

  10. Yea, I love Ubuntu. I make my kids use it to surf the net so I don’t get all riddled with viruses on my pc. It’s not too difficult to tweak your box to work with new installs, but I would guess it would be a nightmare for novice users. I’m looking forward to the day when linux can stand 100% against windows for ease of use on those installs. The kids wanted some music program on the linux and it drove me nuts getting it to work. My son actually likes it…he said it makes him feel like a rebel to use something besides mac and windows.

    It’s cool that you use flex. Since jumping to the RV industry, the flash development has gone downhill, and that sucks because once CS3 came onto the scene (CS4 now)it became a real dream to use to develop some really nice apps. I laugh at the guys at work for thinking Microsoft’s implementation (silverlight) is anything close.
