Iowahawk is one of the funniest conservatives on the planet. During the Iraq War his mockery of Al Qaeda psychopath Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi (or as featured in Iowahawk the Zarkman) provided a little bit of dark humor during some of the darkest days of that war.
When Zarqawi was finally dispatched with a 500 lb laser guided bomb Iowahawk provided this gem:
During the 2008 election William F Buckley’s son Christopher joined the other Rockefeller Republicans in signing up for the Obama Historic Disaster. They couldn’t countenance Sarah Palin as part of the ticket. Iowahawk brilliantly lampoons the Buckley upper-crust horror at Palin and the swooning descriptions of Obama.
During the Obama campaign Iowahawk provides this epic tale of the great Obamacles.
And finally after the election Iowahawk parodied the countless descriptions of the amazing and historic victory of America’s first black president.
Unfortunately in 2014 Iowahawk ceased writing posts to his website and seemed to restrict himself to Twitter (which I’ve never followed). So, I never had a chance to follow his thoughts during the Trumpocalypse. Well, all good things must end sometime. But I figured I’d share this bit of right-wing internet history for any who missed it or were too young.
The Z-Man has a very interesting article on faith, skepticism and atheism.
That he is a skeptic but sees the hollowness of the militant atheists is I think quite perceptive. His final statement, “I do know I’d never want to live in a world ruled by atheists“ resonates for me. I imagine that almost all reflective religious people wrestle with questions about how to reconcile an omnipotent, benevolent God with the world such as it is. But the world view of people who feel their highest calling is to mock Christians speaks of individuals nursing an enormous inferiority complex whose egos need to be constantly revalidated.
Just a quick recommendation and a link on an article on the website American Greatness. Roger Kimball wrote a piece called “The Delusional Press for Power of the Anti-Trump Crowd.” I think it’s pretty great. I’ll start out by saying that I laughed when I saw the picture at the top of the story was the peasants with pitchforks scene from the original Frankenstein movie. That was priceless. He analyzes what the media is doing and why. I won’t paraphrase or belabor it. I’ll just highly recommend it.
