Sharron’s Real Angle

From JON RALSTON at the LAS VEGAS SUN:

Angle: “What’s happening (in America)..is a violation of the 1st Commandment,” entitlements “make government our God.”

That’s what Sharron Angle, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate, said in an April 21 interview with TruNews Christian Radio’s Rick Wiles.


Original DVD cover

“And these programs that you mentioned — that Obama has going with [Harry] Reid and [Nancy] Pelosi pushing them forward — are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.”

This mindset will further reinforce to some that religion infuses everything Angle believes but also might explain her hostility to government programs, believing essentially they are produced by a false God. And she frames the race as one she has been praying over for some time, a war of ideologies and faith: “And I knew that all along when I started praying over a year ago over it. And this just seemed to be the battle that I needed to go to war with. And I need warriors to stand beside me. You know, this is a war of ideology, a war of thoughts and of faith. And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change.”

[Transcript:]

Angle: As believers we know that we have to lean on the Lord daily. And I’ll tell you in this political walk that I’m walking… and I think it is a calling that God has on my life. I have watched him walk with me through politics and help me to see the pitfalls of the political machinery, the seduction of the Party, and even those outside the Party: the lobbyists – all of that to say that the Lord shows me daily where he wants me to walk.

Is it wrong for me to hope that the big guy upstairs suggests a long walk on a short pier?

Wiles: Sharron, why did you get in the race to defeat the biggest Democrat in the U.S. Senate, the majority leader of the entire Senate? Why did you get into this race?

Angle: We’re at war in this country – for our freedom, our culture, for our liberty, our Constitution, and we need a true, battle-tested, proven, Constitutional conservative to take out Harry Reid. […] When he says that he’s voted seven times against partial-birth abortion, we need someone who can say, “And I have a better pro-life record than you, Harry Reid, and we don’t like the way you confirm our Supreme Court judges, who are all pro-choice. And we all know that the battle has been in the Supreme Court all along for life.” The same thing stands for those who love our Second Amendment.

Love the 2nd Amendment? Seriously?

Wiles: Half of the country is working to produce and pay the taxes and pay the bills, the other half is living off the taxpayers — they’re living off the other 51 percent.

Angle: We’re right to that point in the graph where it says, “government dependency.” And we know that once we have a majority that are dependent upon the government, we will lose our freedom; it says we go into bondage. […] That’s the war that we’re in. You know, when I talk about a war and a battle and soldiers we have to take up our…our cry for freedom. And we can do it right now at the battle box… I mean at the ballot box. […] And these programs that you mentioned — that Obama has going with Reid and Pelosi pushing them forward — are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government. And you’ve just identified the real crux of the problem. I’ve also been endorsed by a PAC out of Washington D.C. and the name of that PAC is Government is not God.

Okay, battle box…I mean, battleax…I mean, bubblehead, now you’ve got me confused. If you depend on the big guy upstairs for your protection, what do you need the 2nd Amendment (which you luuuuuuvvvvvvvve) for? Are you idolizing guns? If so, that’s a violation of the First Commandment. 😛

  1. sorry i’m late, kids. i was out all day.

  2. writechic

    Excellent choice for your parody…and at this point I think Sharron has become a parody of a human.

    The more she talks, the more she reveals herself as empty.

    • why thank you, melissa. i think the obtuse angle believes she’s running for spiritual leader of the country. she clearly has no interest in government (except for that adorably lovable 2nd amendment), so why doesn’t she just get out of the pol biz?

  3. kip

    Holy shih tzu!
    Violating the commandment of the amendment of what?
    Too convoluted for me.

    • she’s a fruitcake. she thinks she’s being logical, while everything she says is totally illogical. i think i understand basil marceaux dotcom more than i understand her! 😉

  4. She gives new meaning to the word wing-nut, and I like the way you ringed her finger . 🙂

    If this selfish old bitch wants to see people starve, go homeless and/or die of an untreated disease without any entitlement programs, then why don’t she and her damn religioso mafia put their money where their mouth is and get their damn churches to do ALL the responsibility of helping the poor in this country? It’s their ilk in their custom-made clothes going in their oil-guzzling SUVs to their tax-exempt megachurches that preach prosperity and wealth, while they put 50 cents in the collection plate for all the free “Vote GOP!” lip service they can get! In the meantime who the fuck is going to pray to the almighty for help when the damn church doesn’t even give a fuck for the poor? Somebody should ask that bitch how many poor people she’s helped!

  6. I read that whole thing and now my brain hurts.

    I’m so sick and tired of the damn religion looneys coming out of the woodwork like the vermin they are, wanting to ru(i)n everybody’s damn life. The biggest bunch of selfish, lying, lazy, two-faced, hypocritical assholes in the country! She loves her Second Amendment? Well, then let her stick a gun and a Bible up her ass because that’s where she speaks out of anyway!

    • i want to know what guns have to do with religion. maybe wken will stop by and tell us where ak-47s are mentioned in the bible.

      • They’re in Second Convolutions, although AK-47’s aren’t as good as M-16’s because, everyone knows, God loves American-made guns better.

        But as long as they can kill people quickly without considering mercy, it’s okay!

        You’ve probably heard things like “Turn the other cheek” and “Do not resist an evil person” or “Thou shalt not kill.”

        Those are all mis-translated. “Turn the other cheek” is supposed to be “Reload behind your back,” for example.

        I hope that that helps!

        • Maybe those phrases will show up in Conservapedia’s version of the Bible.

          • i can’t wait to see the illustrations! torpedo guns on noah’s ark and david mowing down goliath with a machine gun! it will be so exciting. i bet the proverbs will be a lot more entertaining. when phyllis schlafly’s little boy, andy, and his buddies get done with it, i think all the roles that charleton heston used to play will have to be recast with sylvester stallone or steven seagal.

        • there ya go. i didn’t know that m-16s are better than ak-47s, because i’m not christian. i didn’t even know that ak-47s aren’t made in the us of a. i hope i can prove my citizenship, because i can probably be deported for that.

          thanks so much for stopping by, wken. i knew you could clear things up for me.

  8. “a war of thoughts and faith” ?

    We all know, historically, faith wars always go so well.

    She must have picked up playing the “god card” from princess Sarah.
    You know when the press asks that loaded question we all dread…..
    “Ms Palin- Will you run for President”??

    She bats her winky-blinky eyelashes, in what seems like a neurological misfiring, and sez:
    If GOD wants me to.

    Because it’s not her choice, it’s GODS choice, which makes her god’s chosen one.

    God maybe, but not the GOP. They already rolled the dice with her & lost big time.
    She Mavericked herself right out of prime time….
    so now she’ll have to go rogue with the tea party.
    Oh- but back to Angle–“And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change.”
    So then just to recap- Angle supports hopelessness, and being stagnant?

    • have you noticed that the only imagery she can muster up always centers around violence? she needs warriors, it’s a battle, and everyone will turn to 2nd amendment remedies.

      p.s. anyone else think she looks like denis leary in drag?

      • Yes Nonnie~ Please consider the next post w Angle to have this suggested accessory–
        a Viking helmet (w horns)- perfect for doing battle!

        Your accessory shop is a fine idea!

        Maybe she will make an ad with the Roman battle call horn sound effect.. while riding in a chariot?

  9. She’s off her rocker, Every screw is loose. Seems odd for someone who wears their religion so prominently on the shoulders that she has no clue of the parable of the coin where the subject of seving two masters is dealt with. So glad Keith did that in depth interview tonight. But she must prove that she is above temptation. Like wandering in the desert for 40 days without food or drink. “And thusly, the Evilangel Reid appeared unto her and swept her to the top of Mount Clark saying thusly ‘I will give all this to you, the casinos, the Elvi, all of Westworld if you will only let me raise the capital gains tax!’ And she turned and spake “Have you sent your $25 to sharronangle.com yet?’ For her self righteousness was great, filled to the top, pressed down, and filled up again.” Let us prey!

  10. Ummmm …

    This illustrates the point I was discussing with a friend of mine a while ago. He asked me if I was worried about Socialism ruining the church.

    I said that I didn’t see how it could, since capitalism had already done a number on us.

    Angle is just flagrantly dishonest, here. Most people aren’t relying on God for our daily bread … they’re trusting themselves.

    Which would be, by the way, idolatry in Christian terms.

    It’s rather stunning how many people are okay with imposing [their version of] Christian values when it comes to school prayer, gay marriage, etc., but balk when it comes to touching their wallets.

    By the way … Jesus talked about taking care of the poor. He never said a word about homosexuality, and what He said about praying in public doesn’t exactly fit the popularly-held American Evangelical ideas.

    • i would love to ask the obtuse angle what babies born into poor families have done to piss off the big guy upstairs. why have they been chosen to go hungry or dodge bullets? the obtuse angle would have been the one to cast the first stone. she’s so delusional, she actually thinks she’s a good person. i know you don’t like emoticons, wken, but i simply must insert the one with the eyeroll here. 🙄

      • I’ve heard that explained, using Old Testament references to God imposing punishment on families for the sins of the fathers to two and three generations.

        The funny thing is, Jesus’ disciples once asked Him who had sinned that a certain man was born blind. He basically called them idiots for believing such a thing, then healed the guy.

        I’ve always thought that the point of that story is that our role isn’t to sit around assigning blame to people, it’s to do what we can to help. For one thing, blame isn’t our job, for another we’re usually wrong.

        I’ve found that that view isn’t very popular among people who claim to like Biblical literalism.

  11. seriously, if this piece of shit wins……….

    • i don’t think she’s going to. i think she’s already dug her own electoral grave, and she can’t seem to let go of the shovel. she just keeps digging it deeper and deeper.
