VISIONS OF HELL

The single most terrifying website you’ve ever seen. (Unless you’ve seen this, of course. It has folk singers.)

Shudder.

    1. Ummm, excuse my ignorance, but who is Ward Churchill?

    1. Winston’s illegitimate grandson, once removed.

    1. Ward Churchill reminds me of some eurotrash villain from a Bruce Willis movie. The guys a cartoon. He wears sunglasses inside on an overcast day, he must be a villain or a spook.

    1. Dean; no he thinks he is cool that way in a sort of ageing hippy way.

    1. I could tell he was scum because he was wearing sunglasses indoors.

    1. Ward compared Americans to Nazis, now that’s original.

      As my previous ignorant comment indicated, I had never heard of Ward before and after taking a bit of look at the site I really couldn’t care less if I never hear of him again.

    1. I recently came across a photograph of the infamous Mr Churchill – he looks like a reject from the 98th lineup of the Allman Brother Band.

    1. By which I mean of course – Allman Brothers Band. Although only one is still alive, so I guess I was technically correct the first time.

    1. One of those posters on display at the Anarchist Bookfair looks as though it got there by mistake – the one of someone holding a revolver (?) and saying “I don’t call 911.’’  That sounds more like a Second Amendment Absolutist to me.

      Did you notice how old Scrotum Man and his buddies seem to be?  A badly-preserved seventy, I’d guess (either that or a seriously whacked-out and drugged-out fiftysomething).  Idiocy – it’s not just for the young and immature anymore, is it?

    1. The march I counterprotest every week has alleged folk singers.  Did you know there were only two folk songs ever written?  If I hear This Land is Your Land and This Train is Bound for Glory one more week, I may have to go Belushi on their guitars…

    1. Terrifying? In what way? I mean, it’s not like these people present any kind of challenge at all to the status quo. Just a bunch of people gathered together whose only chance of EVER having the power they so obviously covet, is if the society they’re living off of spontaneously combusts. And, inevitably, their Mom’s credit card runs out before that happens.

    1. Terrifying? – I’ll tell you how…

      These are anarchists.  ANARCHISTS!  Something like this takes an amount of organisation that an anarchist doesn’t have by definition.  Who then are the anarchist-enablers organising the event?

      I suspect Karl Rove has his hand in this, and I am simply not devious enough to figure out his motive.  That’s why it’s terrifying.

    1. I suspect Mr. Churchill is covering up drug-induced discoloration of the sclera with those sunglasses.

      Most of these “alternative lifestyle” nutjobs mildly amuse me, but those flabby, naked old men were just plain scary.  Talk about Night Of The Living Dead.  Yikes.

    1. Good God, what a horrorshow.

      I don’t usually indulge in emporer-of-the-world fantasies, but Christ would I love to give these people what they want – put them all on an island and let them put their principles in action. Lord of the Flies time.

    1. Having looked (my eyes! my eyes!) at the swollen-scrotum guy, I take back my question regarding guys letting sharp, pointy things near their little friends.

      As a Southern Californian, I’ll take this opportunity to disavow and repudiate my NorCal neighbors.  I’ve been out with Protest Warrior to ANSWER marches, and the ABF has to be the barkingest bunch of moonbats I’ve ever seen.

    1. When a boy needs to attract a gal, he has to promote his assets.  If he doesn’t have any, then he needs to borrow some.

      I knew kids that acted like Elvis, the chinese priest from Kung Fu, Rocky Balboa, whatever was the soup of the day.  Most drop the act after a couple days of intense ridicule and harassment.  No girl is worth that kind of embarrassment.

      Back in the early seventies, Bill Jack was big.  Evidently Ward Churchill kept his Bill Jack impersonation.  Hey, if it works for him …

    1. Doesn’t Churchill’s cushy job educating those who frequently become “little Eichmans” make him a Big Eichman?

      Particularly with the Goebble’s-like Big Lie technique he uses?  Especially the claim to be an Indian?

    1. Gah!  A gathering at which Ward Churchill was NOT the most physically-repellant person there?  Zombie is a much braver man than I.

      The guy with the huge scrotum must be jealous of Pamela Anderson, or something.

    1. I’m having trouble with the concept of capitalism at an anarchist bookfare. They sell things there? Why don’t the attendees just take them?
      It’s not legit without giant puppets either.

    1. “most terrifying”? Bah! It’s not a patch on this truly terrifying site. I was once trapped in a German cultural event on a Rhine cruise. Howard Dean’s scream lasted no more than 5 seconds – mine lasted 10 hours, with no possibility of escape and singalongs making it even worse.

    1. In the first link, scroll down to the last two photos:

      “I’m the worst driver in American History!”

    1. Paul: my mother and I went to Europe in the summer of 1981. We took a boat up the Rhine and ended up in Austria, where we were subject o yodelling and a dance where blond young men in leather shorts slapped themselves in the ass. To this day the sight of spaetzle makes me shudder in reminsiscence.

    1. Some great snaps. Really liked the one where Simulated Native Speaker is waiting for his scheduled speaking appointment. In the name of anarchy.

      Aw, it’s too easy. Like making fun of clairvoyants.

    1. Assuming that anyone read my post above, < cough, cough >, I should mention I made a mistake.  That should read “Billy Jack”.

      Bill Jack is a brand of dog food I believe (or is it Bill-o-Jack?).  (damn it, where’s that fact checker Andrea promised me, I have been waiting weeks for her, or was she being sarcastic?)

      So I’m really not saying that Ward Churchill is dog food or comparing him to the same.  Not really.

      Sorry for the mistake.  Please don’t turn me into Media Watch.

    1. My dog might roll in him, but wouldn’t eat ol’ Big Chief Rain In The Brain. How come those forked tongue anarchists were exchanging goods for wampum? How’d they pay the chief, in firewater?

    1. If what that guy did to himself happens naturally, isn’t it called elephantiasis?  Doesn’t the WHO get involved?

    1. wronwright,  Jeff Goldstein over at Protein Wisdom does a hilarious running gag of Ward Churchill and Billy Jack in a conversation.

    1. I think my favourite is the guy selling books while wearing a jester’s hat. He just looks so…unenthused.

    1. This “anarchist convention” reminds me of a photo of two goofs carrying a sign at some march in Portland.  The sign said “Northwest Anarchist Federation”.

      Organized anarchists.  The mind boggles.

    1. Ward Churchill looks a hell of lot like this guy.

    1. Hey, Hanyu, the Hacowies weren’t mad at anyone- that motherfucker is more like Crazy Cat, who was mad at everyone, and disowned because he was bad for business.

    1. The guy with the saline inflated scrotum – pickled nuts?

      I think lowdog should include him on his/their political porn site

  1. “Let them prove two things: first, that he is not Native American, and if by some stretch they prove he was not, then they have to prove he knew he was not.”

    – David Lane, Ward Churchill’s attorney, after a meeting with CU’s Standing Committee on Research Misconduct
