Shrill blogger to FOX harpy: “Treat atheists like trolls”

Michelle Malkin, a nasty and unfettered controversy-hound whose blog’s enormous popularity owes itself to the discomfiting number of idiots in the United States, recently appeared on FOX to give her opinion on the recent posting of atheist signs in Washington and Illinois. Her partner in this nitwit conversation was Gretchen Carlson, who offered the opinion that these signs, if unopposed, might spell the end of Christianity (would that she were right) and, better yet, implied that atheists using the commandment “Thou Shalt Not Steal” to make a point was somehow self-contradictory.
No, you moron; stealing was wrong long before a bunch of goat-strokers of antiquity invented Christianity and assigned moral principles to God’s will, and–as the Friendly Atheist points out–the sign is intended to remind Christians what they supposedly adhere to.
Anyway, the relevance of the clip below lies not in what any of those it includes have to say (they don’t believe any of their own words) but in the fact that maybe half of the adult population in America laps such garbage up.

    Oh, so it’s the atheists who are undermining civility and peace? Last time I looked, our current wars or acts of terrorism weren’t being waged by atheists.
    Dumb bunnies.

    Does this twit actually think that it would be just fine to steal if there were only nine commandments? WTF?

    “Malkin got run over by a reindeer
    “walking back from Fox News Christmas eve…”
    Ah, if only.

    Does anyone who is not a Fox pundit really care about this stuff? Maybe it’s because I live in the heart of the liberal Northeast, but when the TV is off (not that my TV is ever tuned to Fox; I only know what’s on from blogs and the Daily Show) and I walk around in the street, I don’t see anybody getting stressed out about atheists. I don’t see anybody getting stressed out about whether someone said “merry christmas” or ‘happy holidays or even happy noodlemas.

    I think the trick is that *no*, most people don’t actually care about this stuff in their everyday lives, or wouldn’t — really, it’s fairly meaningless — but in a way, that makes these kinds of campaigns more powerful. The “enemy” is someone that no one has ever encountered, so it’s easier to wish them ill.
    You know, there are some atheists next door, but they aren’t like that — we’re friends! But did you see that piece on Fox about that guy in [other city] who was one of these raving lunatics? — can’t we deport those bastards to Hell or something? This is America, by God!
