FLUNK READING 101 YEAGLEY?

So the piano doctor reads this paragraph arguing for extermination:

"The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring is a demand of the clearest reason and if systematically executed represents the most humane act of mankind" Mein Kampf, tran. Mannheim (1927; rpt.1971), p.255

Then compares it to this paragraph, arguing for the healing of a denial-of-death culture in America:
"The mission of the Project is to promote a better understanding of the experiences of dying and bereavement and by doing so help transform the culture surrounding death ... they abandon the dying when, in their own words, there is nothing more to be done" Project on Death (from The Columbia Speech of George Soros.)

And sees both paragraphs as making the same charge:
DAVID YEAGLEY — “Sounds like Soros is a softened pitch for the same view of Hitler. This is astounding, if true” (DY, Feb.1, 2007)

First off, it does not escape me that this latest neocon ‘talking point’ is designed to shift focus away from Bush failures and escalation in Iraq, Cheney’s court woes over CIA leaks, Gonzales illegal spying programs, and the neocon saber rattling toward Iran — after all, how DID American oil get under Iraqi soil?

But Yeagley made the mistake of attempting to pen his own version of a talking point. Did the so-called piano doctor flunk reading 101? Was he looking through those Stalin-colored spectacles again? What percentile did he merit on his GRE scores in analytical thinking? Did he get to skip those pesky GRE exams being a music major? Yeagley’s above analysis seems — how shall we say — blockheaded, if not outright stupid. For a supposed college graduate, this is astounding, if true.

It appears that David's musical training did not require spelling, grammar, reading, or thinking skills.

I believe someone else has already pointed out that sillyeagle has made some outrageously stupid comments on books or articles which confirm that either (1) he obviously didn't read them, or (2) he obviously didn't comprehend them. Take your pick.

*Yawn*

He can't pull himself away from his great fascinosum, the wallpaperhanger Schicklgruber.

He who sniffs homosexuals behind every Y-front was quite unamused when I introduced the (serious and not at all new) theory that Hitler was a poofter. (Link can be provided.)

Btw, I've switched to the new Blogger and my WafflingWarrior posts can now be seen together on a single page. Neat!

Oh my God! This is too funny not to share...and it is pretty much a prime example of his lack of reading skills.

Someone referred to a native woman as a "squaw skank" on a TV program recently. This is being discussed at Yeagley's site. (Of course, he defends the use of the word "squaw".)

Anyways...as for the word "skank", he said he thought it was "pop lingo" derived from the movie entitled, "Shawshank Redemption". Good grief...I can't stop laughing. It made my day!

David's ignorance is truly showing. He probably has a forth-grade reading level. The only thing he's good at is to lash out at People of Color, women in general, Non-Christians, Liberals and radicals, and anyone else who isn't a white, Christian, hetero male.

His viewpoints are like that of a broken record. He has nothing original to write or say other than what he reads from his conservative, misogynistic, white supremacist friends.
