Needs "death cult" tag.
Xenocide
Needs a "cognitive dissonance" tag.

He took a CS Lewis quote about how the greatest evil is done by politicians who can order the deaths of millions while sitting comfortably behind their desks, and segued that into an argument about why we need more nuclear weapons. It's almost beautifully horrifying.
The Mothership
Too right.

Enjoy
Never get tired of hearing his speeches. Greatest president.

There's no cognitive dissonance. Other people are evil for suggesting their kids are better dead than infidels, that their country and ideology should dominate the world, and that they will engage in aggression to whatever extent needed even if it means endangering every innocent life on the planet. Whereas God said to Reagan that what he was doing was okay, so by definition it can't be wrong.

This is the single worst thing about religion to me. Too often people will say 'It's not wrong if God does it', and "I would do terrible things if I thought God wanted me to". They (like Reagan) are simply replacing the meaning of the word 'morality', with 'blind submission to an authority'. If I had to make a list of deadly sins, that would be number one.

Enjoy, we haven't had an actual president since Carter. They've all been spokesmodels who answer to the banks and oil companies.

Reagan was not a great man. He was a good little boy who did as he was TOLD.

If I had a dollar for every time someone said "cognitive dissonance" on this fucking website...

Was...was he talking about us? It sounds like he was talking about us...

Fuck this dead cunt. 5 for evil.

I'd rather my daughters were dead than that they grow up to not believe the same thing as me.

Communism is bad because it tramples on individual freedoms.
Sephirock
Exactly....I'm no atheist but f-ck what he's saying here. I'm glad we beat communism but not if it means that doesn't give Christians the right to say we're a theocracy.

Robin Kestrel
^ This too.

Oh, you are a precious little gumdrop, arent you?

Too bad you didn't kill your son when you had the chance, then.

It's interesting to see leftwing journalists and magazines come to this man's defense, what with all this insanity in the GOP now, but still: Thanks for all the AIDS, asshole.
fatatty
It's a pretty bad sign when Reagan appears to be a moderate conservative who probably wouldn't make it through the primary in 2012.

Syd Midnight
Pretty dumb journalists if they think Reagan set his own policy. Reagan would be doing same now as before, whatever his backers and friends wanted him to do, with an evil genius running mate in the wings and competent handlers never more than 2 steps away.

He'd reign in and revitalize the GOP base as the Great Teabagger Whisperer, Darth Grandpa uniting filthy rich and ornery lunkhead alike, receiving verbal fellatio from Fox, literally worshipped as a demi-god. Just listen to him speak. He was a means of control.

Jimmy Labatt
Un-fucking believable.

"Totalitarian Darkness" needs its own tag.
themilkshark
Glad my parents didn't decide to kill me for being atheist
IrishWhiskey
No, once you're atheist you are safe, since killing you would sent you to hell. It's when you're Christian you should be killed, as it's better off than ending up atheist.

And every so often a depressed or unbalanced parent will follow this article of faith, and smother or drown their children as a way of helping them escape worldly troubles into paradise. But the Hollywood actor we like to pretend was a real cowboy said child-murder is moral, so let's all politely applaud and ignore it's consequences.

takewithfood
Yeah, just saying that you'd be better off dead. Oh, and you're the focus of evil in the modern world. Because you're a communist and stuff.

Saint Reagan.

No comments, five for evil.
dairyqueenlatifah
Holy shit.

The 80s were scarier than the 2000s.

As a former professional infomercial man, Reagan went on to have a glorious career talking up all the wonderful features of the dismantling and selling of America.

Cena_mark
Its hard being a Republican Atheist. But they can't take my freedom of religion away, so I'll keep voting for them.
IrishWhiskey
They don't have to completely deny your choice in order to take away your rights, in the same way they can take away your free speech without leaving you voiceless.

Caminante Nocturno
Ladies and gentlemen, the man who killed America.
jangbones
he didn't kill it but he certainly helped create the divisions in our country that have only gotten deeper and deeper since

Senator_Unger
There are two dying steel towns in my county and every time my Republican co-worker complains about them, I politely remind him that Regan personally beat the American steel industry to death, causing those towns to collapse. He doesn't like it when I do that.

memedumpster
Protobama.
yogarfield
you don't believe that, you just wanted to say that somewhere.

chumbucket
Surprised we never ended up naming a Department Of Good after this. Maybe we're saving it for the genetically-enhanced Justice League Of The World.
joelkazoo
Reagen helped kill the family farm, which stressed my Dad out so bad he died of a heart attack at 47. Meanwhile, Reagan got to live to be 94 surrounded by opulence and people touting him as some sort of messiah.

Fuck him.
