BLACKIE’S CLUELESS: “I WANNA BE SEAN HANNITY”

340

Former buzzsaw cod-piece wearing, red meat slinging, naked woman whipping, beast fucker Blackie Lawless of 80’s second-tier hair metal has-beens W.A.S.P. is currently frothing rabid saliva in the mouth over the latest threat to the U.S. of A.: Barack Obama.

Last week, Lawless displayed his current addiction to rabid right-wing talking points when he posted an anti-Obama screed on W.A.S.P.’s website here. Apparently, Blackie has been hiding out in his Topanga Canyon mansion near the Pacific Ocean, in the den of liberalism, with four televisions turned to Fox News, seven stereos blaring out Rush Limbaugh, and four computers and two laptops with The Drudge Report on his screens

Here are some red meaty chunks provided by Lawless in his rant:

This man is a product of that Extreme Leftist – Marxist movement that has been building in this country for over 40 years. He is a product of the Harvard far left. He is the face and mouthpiece of a movement that is Hell Bent on breaking up the U. S. Constitution and reassembling it to conform to their vision. He is a lawyer, the Democratic Johnny Cochran, in which every time he speaks gives a closing argument. He is the embodiment of the New Democratic Machine.

and this:

Right now, as I write, the L. A. Times Newspaper has a videotape, which it refuses to release to the American Public, which shows Obama at a farewell dinner celebration for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Spokesman Rashid Khalidi. He was also a spokesman for Yassir Arafat. In this tape are the recorded verbal attacks on Israel and the Israeli People and reference to Israel as a terrorist state. Reportedly, the Domestic terrorist Bill Ayres, who as part of the “Weather Underground” terrorist organization bombed several U. S. targets including the Pentagon and the home of a U. S. Judge and killing 2 policemen in the process, was also at this dinner. Obama has been close friends with Khalidi and Ayers for many years. The oath of President requires that the President will “protect the United States against all enemies, both Foreign AND Domestic”. Guess he didnt read that part!

and finally, this:

From Obama’s 20 year association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright who has repeatedly said: ”It’s not God Bless America, No, No, No, Its God Damn America! Obama sat in Wrights church and listened to this Treason for 20 years. Wright also performed Obama’s marriage and Baptized both of his children. Obama was an organizer for Acorn, the group now accused of massive voter registration fraud. Some working for Acorn have already been jailed for this. Obama was also Acorns lawyer for a time. Obama recently donated over $800,000 to Acorn.
He accuses Americans for “clinging to their guns and religion”. Never in the history of the United States has any Presidential candidate had a shroud of controversy surround them as has Obama. If someone would have told me 2 years ago that anybody with these associations could get nominated for their party, or even dog catcher, much less President of the United States, I would have said your insane.

Lawless continues on to quote all of the Fox News lowlights of the 2008 campaigns: “tax and spend,” “Marxist,” “ACORN,” “pallin’ around with terrorists,” “Communist,” “Mein Kampf,” “Hitler,” “reverse racism,” etc., etc., etc.

I believe the best response to Lawless is summed up by Mass Hypnosis Metal Radio host Kent Basky over at the liberal blog DailyKos:

Dear Mr. Lawless;
I have to say it is with a touch of sadness and some confusion that I read your statement regarding Barack Obama and tomorrow’s election. While I haven’t been a fan of every single release, I still consider myself a fan. More importantly, I always felt that you were a fine example of the non-stereotypical metalhead: intelligent, articulate and well-versed in the world. So I was shocked to see your rant against Obama. You claim that you aren’t supporting McCain, yet every single claim you make in the article is straight from the Republicans battle strategy for this election. Lies, bordering on slander, that have been pumped out ad nauseum by Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, The Drudge Report and other right-wing attack artists. Seriously, you believe that Obama is a Marxist? That he is a product of the “Harvard Far-Left”? Perhaps you could explain how that is so much worse than someone who is a product of the “Yale Far Right”? Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it. As one scans down the page, we see all of the pathetic and debunked McCain claims: The connections to Khalidi, Ayers and Wright.

And don’t even get me started on ACORN. I am glad to see you denounce racism, yet to make the kind of statements that black people are only voting for Obama because he is black is not only a line of thinking right out of the mouth of such human scum like Rush Limbaugh.
You decry Obama for reading ‘Mein Kampf’, so I have a question for you: How is this bad, when you take into account the comments of G. Gordon Liddy, convicted felon, domestic terrorist, and good friend of John McCain? It is a sincere disappointment that you would risk more war, economic disaster and even the very freedom to do what you do because you fell for the lies of the complicit right-wing media and a man who voted with Bush 90% of the time. If you think Obama is scary, believe me, what the world fears more is a sickly McCain taking office, then dying to hand the reins of power to Sarah Palin, who will most assuredly attack metal with a ferocity that will make the battle against the PMRC seem like a joke.

So thank you, for making some memorable music over the years. But in your belief of the smear tactics against Obama, and support of a party that will destroy the freedom to play and listen to the music that so many love, you have lost me as a fan. Here’s to you not getting what you wish for.

Well said, Mr. Basky. Hopefully, you will garner new listeners for your stance on the truth. Show your support and listen to Mass Hypnosis here.

I’m curious if all the people who have whined about Dallas Coyle expressing his political opinions at MetalSucks will write Mr. Lawless and tell him to “just shut up and sing”?

Somehow, I don’t think they will.
