Moon bat has replaced mooncalf as a colloquial term for a fool, halfwit, dunce, moron, etc. One could just as well say it is synonymous with Muslim and Progressive.
Howling at the moon is an idiom meaning making an utterly ludicrous, transparently insane remark stated as a truism. It designates a statement that contradicts obvious or demonstrable evidence, and is contrary to what is clearly true, or to what is relevant to the facts. It isn’t certain yet why wolves howl at the moon, but we are certain that Progressivism and Islam cause human moon bats to howl at reality. Here are a few instances:
Reuters editors and the filterers of other news sources must have snickered when on August 17th they reported Chancellor Angela Merkel stating bald-faced that Germany’s violence is not caused by the “immigrants” or the barbaric “refugees.” They somehow didn’t bring rape, murder, and terrorism to Germany (or to Sweden, France, and other European nations). It’s those nasty jihadists who wish to terrorize Germany into submission. But they’ve already done that. They don’t practice the same Islam as the non-entities who can be seen on German streets pushing their welfare state paid prams of future “Germans.”
"The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees," Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.
The influx of migrants, many of whom are Muslim, has boosted support for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), which is expected to perform well in elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin.
"We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution ... belongs to Germany," Merkel said.
She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.
Clueless or lying on her reelection stump, it does not occur to Merkel that Islam will not “stick to the constitution” of Germany, as Islam regards man-made law as an abomination to AllahWalla. Under Sharia law, there are no “equal rights” for women, nor for non-Muslim infidels, nor for homosexuals, nor for anyone else but Muslim males.
So, set you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]) your face towards the religion (of pure Islâmic Monotheism) Hanîf (worship none but Allâh Alone). Allâh’s Fitrah (i.e. Allâh’s Islâmic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq-illâh (i.e. the religion of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (Tafsir At-Tabarî)}(Ar¬-Rûm:30)
And, apparently, Angela Merkel knows not of what she speaks. But, what she worry? Islam belongs to and in Germany. "Former president Wulff said Islam belongs to Germany. That is true. I also hold this opinion," Merkel said at a news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who also took part with other world leaders in the Paris march on Sunday.” [January 12, 2015]
Rather, Germany now belongs to Islam, thanks to Wulff and Merkel, who opened the gates and borders to the migrant invasion. This would be a truer statement.
FrontPage wrote of him,
Hillary Clinton and her entourage have had everything undeservedly handed to them on a silver platter. And yet they never stop hating America.
Tim Kaine, Hillary's ridiculous buffoon of a VP, who is running as number two to a female presidential candidate, decided to take his ridiculous hatred of America to a new level by claiming that America is worse for women than Afghanistan.
Greenfield asks, “Does Kaine really believe that women have more political opportunities in Afghanistan than they do in America? Is he that stupid or does he hate his country that much?” I would answer both: He is that stupid and he hates America. But he keeps his thickness and malice in the background.
Next up for a baying is our Community Organizer in Chief, Barack Obama, who, among his many other lies and gaffs, has claimed that “climate change” is more a threat to national security than is ISIS or hundreds of thousands of Syrian “refugees” of the Islamic persuasion who are being invited to emulate Angela Merkel’s invasion-by-invitation of this country. As the Free Beacon reported on December 1st, 2015,
A new SuperCut video contrasts doomsday rhetoric from the Obama administration about climate change with news clips of terrorist attacks, plane bombings and beheadings by the Islamic State.
President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry offer the following words in the video about climate change.
“Today, there is no greater threat to our planet than climate change.”
“No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.”
“It is indeed one of the biggest threats facing our planet today.”
“Climate change is the threat multiplier.”
Far be it from Obama to realize that he is his own “threat multiplier.” But I think he knows it. Everything he has done over the last eight years has been to weaken the U.S. and to make it vulnerable to Islamic terror. He has been our first, blatantly, conscious “Evil Executive” in pursuit of unlimited and unopposed executive power.
Of course, the Father of Hockey Sticks, Al Gore, worried that he will be forgotten, uttered his own inanity. Truth Revolt reported on August 23rd,
After the floods had hit Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last week, former vice president and self-proclaimed global warming guru Al Gore coined the natural disaster as “one of the manifestations of climate change.”
As The Washington Times notes, news articles followed with the same line. The New York Times wrote, “Flooding in the South looks a lot like climate change.” The Green Party of Louisiana declared a “climate state of emergency.” And at least one meteorologist said “we’ve reached a new meteorological era” because of global warming, or climate change… or whatever they call it now.
So, that’s settled, right? Not according to most experts. Some see no evidence that links this flood to climate change, unlike global warming alarmists….
But then again, maybe Al Gore is just excited. It is the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web, after all, and since he invented it, he’s probably just celebrating with something else he invented: global warming hype.
Not to be left out of the howling, is Secretary of State John Kerry, who competes with Vice President Joe Biden to utter the best and most memorable inanities. In November 2015 Breitbart put together a file of them:
BOSTON – Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry is a dunce, and has a record of making preposterously stupid and offensive statements dating back to 1971.
In fact, if you go onto Google and type in “John Kerry gaffe,” you will get 350,000 hits.
At the U.S. embassy in Paris Tuesday, he did it again, with perhaps his most obnoxious, tone-deaf public pronouncement yet. Speaking to State Department staffers, he compared the two Muslim terrorist massacres in France this year – shooting up the magazine offices of Charlie Hebdo and then last Friday’s celebration of diversity, which left 129 dead.
“There’s something different about what happened (Friday) from Hedbo,” the 71-year-old Yale graduate said, “and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of – not legitimacy – but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and okay they’re really angry because of this or that.”
Yes, he backed off, immediately and then again yesterday. But however you parse it, he rationalized slaughtering people for exercising free speech. This is the guy the Democrats promoted for president in 2004 as being “smarter” than his fellow Yale grad, George W. Bush, despite the fact that Kerry’s GPA was slightly lower.
Doubtless President Obama refers to Kerry, the “marry up to riches” parasite and the guy who claims to have “swift-boated” his Army rewards out the window, as one of his two prize dumb-ass honkies, the other being Joe Biden.
And the MSM pack loves to hear them howl, and often joins in the serenade with its own brand of inanity. But then the MSM is populated with its own species of moon bats, and they’re fanged and carry rabies.
The foregoing quotations are all "howlers," but they're not funny.
