It's much easier to wrap your head around once you realize that the ten commandments only apply to other christians that you personally know.

5 stars for the stock Christian footage, Malkin's permanent facial snarl, and pausing at 1:40

If we don't steal their signs, and let them go about their business then they will have the control! THE ATHEIST MOVEMENT MUST BE STOPPED BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

The only fitting punishment for these people is for Jesus to show up in person and call them all a bunch of whiny cunts.

The Preload image is hysterical.
Yeah, Michelle needs to learn to look at herself in the monitors. "Hmm, maybe I shouldn't show my teeth like this."
You'd think she's been on TV enough to know so. Other than that weird look she was giving us, I think she's hot. Am I alone in this sentiment?

Jesus Paralympic Christ, what a good way to start the day with bile.
I'm not an atheist, and yet I want to slap those two bitches so bad...
"Oh No! If we don't stop them, the atheists will take over!!!! And we all know they've always been such dreadful stupid little trolls like that annoying Einstein and his buddies Darwin and Sagan, and crappy little "writers" like that vulgar Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift, not to mention that crazy Sigmund Freud guy. What a Joke they are! Let's just ignore them and pray for them".
It's pretty stupid of atheists to protest religion on Christmas. It's stupid and self-destructive and a sign of completely feckless and empty people. I actually agree with FoxNews people, perhaps for the first time in my life.
Yeah, it ticks me off that the group that erected the sign think they represent all atheists, both in belief and in action. You can be an atheist without expressly disbelieving in god, and more importantly, you can be an atheist without believing that religion "hardens hearts and enslaves minds".
The people who put up that sign are asshole passive-aggressive attention seekers. Mind you, the people who put up the nativity display are spoiled, ignorant assholes too. Fuck them all.
But these Fox puppets didn't mention any of that. So fuck them too.
Militant Atheists who disrupt religious celebrations are whiny attention seekers who deserve to be neutered and left in the woods to die. I think that point can easily be expressed by even the dumbest evangelist Christian and it will gain my sympathy. However, these bitches (especially the blonde one) in their hypochondriac panic managed to fuck up something so simple by dumbing it down to "WE MUST SAVE XTIANITY FROM TEH EVIL ATHIEST!!!11", and with comments like "claiming they are so indispensable that we need 'A Day Without Atheists'" (Yeah, aside from the theory on the evolution of the species and thousands of practical scientific inventions in use in our daily lives, what did atheists ever do for us?!?) and "Some of my best friends are atheists" and the brilliant logical gem that believes itself to be irony of "oh yeah, you're an atheist but let's use one of the ten commandments to prove our point" just managed to ridicule themselves.
No, Atheists don't have to protest. They have no need to protest anything. They are atheists. The only reason they shat all over Christmas was to smugly congratulate themselves about how amazingly atheist they are. The equivalent would be if Christians began hanging signs next to the manger than said "Atheists burn in hell." But they didn't, because Christmas is about fucking getting together with your family and eating a lot. But I assume these atheists would LOVE to see the rather innocent display of an innocuous wintery celebration turn militant so that the nastiest and most intolerant members of Christianity turns its ugly face so that these dumbfucks can congratulate themselves about whatever.
Dude your making this way more dramatic than it is, let me try again with another quote from the story.
"Dan Barker, a former evangelical preacher and co-founder of the group, said it was important for atheists to see their viewpoints validated alongside everyone else's."
I don't see a cultural indictment of the institution of Christmas here or in the sign that they put up. Do you? could you highlight where exactly the shitting all over Christmas comes in? Its not like they commissioned a giant version of piss Jesus to sit in front of city hall or something. This about a public show of face and raising profile, just like religions tend to do at this time of year. It really doesn't have much to do with Christmas, but frankly neither does Christianity. They're protesting being marginalized, which by the response they've gotten seems to be a valid concern. I honestly don't understand what all the fuss is about, other than that people seem have this bizarre narrative of militant atheists stealing their holiday funtimes.
As much as I dislike antitheists I'm with Barker on this one. The nativity scene shouldn't have been on government property to begin with.
Shut the fuck up SolRo. God, I haven't said that in a while. That felt good.
The point is it's just boring and stupid and tired and there was no reason for it. It does not beg analysis. To analyze it as anything more than sheer stupidity is to give these people too much credit and to empower the kinds of Christians that nobody wants empowered.
Live and let live used to be a nice thing, a way to be American, or at least an aspiration. Who gives a shit if a Christmas display was on the state lawn? for fuck's sake is that really something worth pissing people off about or even wasting a moment to protest? it's nothing more than a pseudointellectual game between jackasses who obviously have way too much time on their hands if they found this worth doing either for its comical effect (it's not funny) or it's political importance (it failed). If they wanted to do something powerful, they should start an Atheist's Soup Kitchen for Cold and Poor People or something.
I thought the atheist sign was pretty tasteful. The only people making a big deal about it were the guys who removed it and Fox News (surprise!).
I didn't think they'd keep the "war on christmas" crap up once Gibson's book sold enough copies, but apparently it was a meme they're not willing to give up. Even the douchiest of douchey atheists are doing us a favor by pissing off people like the ones in the video.
(Fun fact: Christmas wasn't heavily celebrated for about the first hundred years that we were a country. Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" did a lot to change that. It may be heritage but it's damn recent heritage.)

I don't know what is so ridiculous about Michelle Malkin in this clip. What about placing a sign calling religion 'myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.' next to a nativity scene doesn't reek of trolling? So, they did it just because they have a right to? Maybe they genuinely meant it as a sort of public service announcement and they are just mental cripples.
The blonde on the other hand is out of her mind and makes me weep for America.
That blond lady was so stupid. They used "Thou Shalt not steal" to point out the hypocrisy in stealing the sign. Some folks just don't get it.
On the other hand, I don't think atheists should try to step on people's Christmas fun. Because whether you're Christian or atheist, Christmas is the American holiday of Capitalism. As an agnostic, fiscal conservative, libertarian, I'm glad that there is a holiday celebrating capitalism.
"I don't know what is so ridiculous about Michelle Malkin in this clip."
Dude, Cena_mark doesn't need your help
That isn't a bad thing. It means I appreciate freedom more than anything else. Social, economic, whatever freedom it is I love it.

This is what many people consider sane, rational and balanced "news." Think about that.
This is their morning show, which has commentary. But their regular news reports are just as fair and balanced as anybody else. Liberal idiots who hate Fox News never seem to grasp the difference between news and commentary.
Wow eskimopie, I didn't know you could read the minds of Fox News viewers. That's an amazing skill.
Cena, no matter how much you comment on videos, we're not going to push your YouTube vids through the hopper anymore

Ha ha, wow!
"It might just disappear...I'M TALKING ABOUT CHRISTIANITY!!"
Yeah, if you let atheists express themselves, they might lure away all the retarded Christians with their EVIL LOGIC! And then what will we have? NO MORE CHRISTIANITY! Fight the atheist movement!
The Asian chick is annoying, but the blond chick is just plain fucked up.

You're watching Fox News: now the only network that upholds traditional values!
Up next: Why stealing is okay if it's from people you don't like!
|StanleyPain - 2008-12-20 |
The thing to remember about Malkin is that, like Ann Coulter and that ilk, she doesn't really believe the bullshit she's spouting per se, she just latched onto this shtick knowing it was a reliable career move. I mean, she's unquestionably on the dim, barely-able-to-think, neo-conservative level, but at the same time knows how going over the top and playing "even worse cop" to most of Fox's "bad cop" style journalism.
She also knows she's dumb as a box of rocks, so she avoids tough journalism and anything where she might have to debate or use logic to explain the watery fecal matter that oozes from her mouth.

I used to be annoyed by this silliness, but I'm over it.

"Yeah, that's true."
Of course, because she said it.

She's right, they should live under bridges and eat billy goats.
|Cleaner82 - 2008-12-20 |
Sure wacky blonde lady, sure. Steal the sign. I feel the anger in you. BEAT THOSE ATHIESTS at their own game -- your transformation will be complete. You have become what you hate! No god would take you now! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!
Oddly, Michelle speaks truth. And she's using the word 'troll' in the right context -- that's very rare in the mainstream. I feel compelled to mention she's still an evil psycho, just not here.

I'm agog to find Michelle fucking Malkin looking like the reasonable one... in comparison of course. Is blondie really as dumb as she seems? "How dare they put up one of our commandments hulaglalalalaala!" Jesus Christ lady!
|chumbucket - 2008-12-20 |
"if you steal out baby jesus then we're just gonna have to steal your right to speak out as assholes with no sense of timing" oh and -1 for no "Santa Fag"

Michelle Malkin constantly looks like she's about to rip someone's throat out with her teeth.
On the random occasion when I imagined what it would be like to have sex with her, she sounded like the snarly-ball thing from Portal.

Man, American Laodicean Christianity has no idea what real persecution is like. A few real martyrs and you'll see 90% of them run off screaming.
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-12-22 |
Did scary Fembot chick just say what I think she said? That they have to fight for control?
"If you let them do that..."
Yes, we should make a law where you can't voice any kind of atheistic sentiment. Good thinking, FOX!

Ahem, an atheist using a Bible verse is not hypocrisy. It's their way of telling them "Practice what you fucking preach!".
