Now it's time to play everybody's least favorite game,Which Nutcase Said . . . ?
Obviously there's been a lot of talk lately about Iran, their nuclear ambitions, and how their president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (above left), is supposedly so crazy that when shithouse rats see him they cross over to the other side of the street and whisper, "Yo, that nigga crazy." But how crazy is he? Crazier than America's home-grown nutcases? If he is, it may not be by much. Below are ten unattributed quotes, and it's your job to decide whether they were spoken by Ahmadinejad or by an American whack job like, say, Pat Robertson (above right). See if you can name the nutcase without clicking on the link. Good luck!
"Israel must be wiped off the map."
"Today, you are among the world's most powerful armies because you rely on God."
"My friends, this election is about much more than who gets what. It is about who we are. It is about what we believe. . . . There is a religious war going on in our country . . . It is a cultural war, as critical to the kind of nation we will one day be as was the Cold War itself."
"What we saw on [September 11] . . . could be miniscule if, in fact, God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve. . . . God will not be mocked."
"The issue of Palestine is not one which we could compromise on."
"I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol. . . . We in the army of God, in the house of God, kingdom of God have been raised for such a time as this."
"He [Ariel Sharon] was dividing God's land, and I would say, 'Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the [European Union], the United Nations or the United States of America.' "
"Homosexual conduct is, and has been, considered abhorrent, immoral, detestable, a crime against nature, and a violation of the laws of nature and of nature's God upon which this nation and our laws are predicated."
"The army must always be equipped and ready, and have mastered the latest technology, to respond to any aggression. We want peace, security and progress for all people, in particular the countries of the region and our neighbours."
"We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them."
BONUS QUESTION: Of the two nutcases pictured at the top of this post, which one advocated striking parts of Washington, D.C., with a nuclear weapon?
