Will Palin’s Satire Clause Cover Delegate Bob Marshall?

Well, I’m waiting for the great defender of special-needs families to tell Bob Marshall of Virginia just how cracked in the head he is.  Did I mention he’s a Republican? This may be safe under Sarah Palin’s satire clause.  Just last week:

State Delegate Bob Marshall of Manassas says disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy.

He made that statement Thursday at a press conference to oppose state funding for Planned Parenthood.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.

“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”

Marshall was among more than 20 people, mostly Christian pastors and clergy, who gathered for the press conference in the General Assembly Building.

They called on Virginia officials to eliminate state funding for Planned Parenthood because the organization provides abortions.

Here’s Bob’s Contact Numbers! 703 – 361 – 5416 (office and fax)
703 – 853 – 4213 (cell)




    BITE ME!

  2. I hope he’s eliminated from office for saying such stupid sh+t about women and planned parenthood. Not satire. Shouldn’t get a pass from that hypocrite $P, though.

  3. Shannyn,
    She did such a ‘poor Job ‘ (she is GOOD at THAT ) last time with Rush…. do you think her little head ( think BettleJuice here ) can possibly come up with a REASONABLE explanation to explain Bob Marshalls opinion.
    I don’t think this falls under the category of ” satire “. Granny is a Satire Expert now.

    OT now. I hope you discuss Gryphens post he put up today on your Show and the ‘ interesting ‘ pictures with the story. You can hold back Your opinion…. but why not let the listeners give theirs. That way Granny won’t send Mr. FleaBag down there with a 4 page threatening letter.
    ” Suck it up ButterCup ”

    We also hear Tawd is out of the IronDog. No repeat performance this year I guess. Granny can make up an excuse for him though.

  4. WHAT in the HELL Is WRONG with these people??!! It seems like over the past 30 years, so-called “Christian’s” have been turning more and more towards their religion to justify their Hate, Greed, Bigotry, MURDER, Dishonesty, Disrespect–basically everything and anything that their Bible preaches as GOOD, THEY preach as EVIL?? AND, it’s escalating!!
    I fully understand that it’s ignorance that breeds much of this hate–BUT, it’s become MUCH too widespread, too collective, for it to ONLY be IGNORANCE!! You know, I lived and worked at an Ashram for a few years, and even before that I saw hope that MAYBE this World was moving towards ONEness, that people were awakening to there was something more than just themSELVES in this World. TODAY? Believe me, living in a small, ultra-conservative, 12 church town; I’ve seen more Hate, Racism and Disrespect in the past 7 years HERE, in the Northeast, than I did for 40 years in the deep SOUTH!! And I’m physically challenged, on disability and despite my 30 years of working as a healthcare professional and very active volunteer, proud mom of 3 grown, educated responsible adults…no longer matters. I’m a “useless, lazy tax leech, living off of hard-working Americans”. I’ve been called everything under the sun and am treated like a leper–by these “Good Christian” people. I’m sorry…I’m just honestly losing Hope in this Country. I have friends and relatives overseas, and although they’ve seen some changes; they look at us and wonder if this Country hasn’t been fed too many expensive anti-psychotics, poisoning the great majority of it’s citizens…

  5. Oh, that would be exempt: it’s actually called the $arah Palin Satire/GOP Clause. He gets a pass for this one.

  6. My sister-in-law had five children, the first born the only child with down syndrome and no abortions. Explain that one to me Mr. Marshall.

  7. Another fine example of X-tian charity. Offensive in oh-so-many ways. Did God happen to share that little tidbit with him directly?

    I used to wear a button from Planned Parenthood that read “Birth Control Prevents Abortion”. Does this ding dong not understand what Planned Parenthood does? What a moron. Actually, make that an EVIL moron.

  8. And God punishes those who vote Republican, by making them sound like Bob Marshall.
    Can you imagine Marshall, Palin and Bachmann putting their heads together for a brainstorm?

    • What brains to brainstorm with?? If that’s the way it goes why do I have a happy, healthy 13 yo?

  9. where do they get this shit from?
    I know many young woman who have had an abortion then went on to have families when they were ready. I hate to tell these dumbf*cks, abortions do nothing to a future pregnancy.
    Who’s God does he worship? Not mine, thats for sure.
    What an ass. The worst part about his words are that some ignorant, uneducated girl who is brainwashed by a right wing church will believe this nonsense!

    • Well, there was that one horse that mated with a — zebra? one time. And ever after, had stripey foals. I’ve NO idea if that is a true story, but I’ve run across it a dozen times. I’m not even sure it fits into the discussion. But it crossed my mind, and I haven’t slept in 39 hours.

  10. […] Shannyn Moore asks: I’m waiting for the great defender of special needs families to tell Bob Marshall of Virginia just how cracked in the head he is. Did I mention he’s a Republican? This may be safe under Sarah Palin’s satire clause.” […]

  11. So Sarah had an abortion and Tri-G is her punishment? Wow. Sounds like Marshall is dissing the Queen.

    • That was my first thought. It would be a wonder if the Queen of Fools keeps quiet about it, given the implication.

    • And why not? Beck and Hannity and O’Reilly all diss’d her — it was embarrassing to watch, every time. Every one of them forced answers out of her, and… OMG… she trainwrecked on all of them.

      My favorite being identifying George Washington as a founding father. And the next day, finding dozens of good conseratives insisting that ‘founding father’ was a vague term!

  12. i think this means that mr marshall’s mom had an abortion… right? ’cause he’s mentally disabled?

  13. Trig is disabled. Sarah is retarded.

  14. Another very embarrassing moment for those of us that are practicing Christians. These folks need to get a clue or self-destruct. They are not helping the kingdom and they lack any intellectual depth. Stupid, stoopid, stewped!

  15. Amen, Poolman! I have no idea what Bible these people are reading. Clearly not one with the 9th chapter of John.

    You need a Jesus Facepalm pic. 😀

  16. How on earth does someone like this ever get elected. What a fool to even have the audacity to think he knows what God’s plan is! OMG, what a clueless, disgusting remark.

    • This is nothing new. Every Republican has the audacity to think they know what God’s plan is. That’s the way it’s been for the last several decades….

  17. So…how does he explain disabled first children of women who never had abortions, like me? God must be an awful, petty cruel being to inflict suffering on the innocent due to prior actions of their parents. Given that they have clearly identified God as a spiteful, mean-spirited being, why do they insist on worshiping him? Isn’t that a bit like choosing to worship Darth Vader? I think actual Christians should revolt against these horrible human beings who insist on foisting their vile, mean-spirited, vengeful, cruel, evil view of humanity onto God. They demean the value of faith. If I truly believed that God was responsible for causing my daughter the misery she has endured for years simply to ‘teach me a lesson,’ he (or she) is one major dickwad I would not be supporting under any circumstances–omnipotent creator or not.

  18. I love when non medical people decide that they know medicine and the word of God.
    Lots of miscarriages happen before a women even knows she is pregnant.
    Natures way, lots of times, if there is problem with a pregnancy.

    Perhaps we could make him do a palin and write on his hand, I must not say stupid remarks to and about women and maybe tattoo on his forehead

  19. This is ghastly. My ex-wife’s mother admitted to her that she felt that my ex-wife’s being born with a deformity was God’s punishment for having aborting a child conceived by another man before she was married. I believe that the emotional ambivalence — or worse — that parents, but especially the mother, feel toward a baby can be deeply imprinted on him or her. Even though contradicted later by expressions of love, the sense of feeling defective and unwanted can persist and cause more unhappiness than the birth defect itself. Because the experience is pre-verbal and not accessible to memory, it seems “natural” to feel defective and unworthy, and it is very difficult to reach through psychotherapy.

    Spreading this myth, adding to parents’ pain and the trauma it may inflict on their children, is morally despicable. It is also religiously flat wrong. It is one thing to say that God opposes taking innocent human life through abortion, and something quite different to say that God inflicts punishment for it by causing innocent human beings to suffer.

    At bottom, this is a psychological defense mechanism, another form of “blame-the-victim.” If we can blame the victim for what in reality is a random misfortune, it lets us believe that the same thing can’t happen to us. It is an effective and addictive pain-killer for those troubled by pangs of compassion, but users should be warned that it may result in normal-appearing children who show pervasive symptoms of liberalism as they mature. 🙂

  20. Well, at least Kansas is no longer the only state with the crackpot Republicans. We’ve been struggling for years with the wackos wanting to undo science in public school, arguing for Creationism, arguing against sex education and now trying to close down public schools through severe budget cuts.

    We, as a people, must start standing up against ignorance. We, as Americans, must say “enough!” We need to start demanding textbooks stop reflecting the fundamentalist doctrines coming out of Texas, which spends three billions dollars a year ensuring that its agenda adopted in public school textbooks.

    If we don’t, the off-the-wall fundamentalism babble that you see in this Virginia Republican’s opinion will begin to become the norm.

    We seen the push for it here in Kansas. These folks have been groomed in this doctrine and want to indoctrinate our children in it as well.

    I, for one, am tired of hearing someone say they know what God wants, particularly when it involves hatred and violence. I hope others are tiring of it as well. I hope to hear moderate voices from the faith community start registering their opposition in larger numbers.

    As one who is affiliated with a faith community, I often feel as if I don’t have standing to complain (though I do), so I hope those who identify as Christians but who do not condone hate and ignorance come forth to counter and eventually silence folks such as this guy.

  21. Oops – I meant to write “As one who is not affiliated with . . . .”


  22. Incredible!!!!! I assume he purports to be a Christian and he had better read the Good Book

    The Book of Proverbs states that: “six things the Lord hateth, and the seventh His soul detesteth.”

    Haughty eyes
    A lying tongue
    Hands that shed innocent blood
    A heart that devises wicked plots
    Feet that are swift to run into mischief
    A deceitful witness that uttereth lies
    Him that soweth discord among brethren

    I think this idiot is guilty of more than one of these as well as several Commandnents.

  23. Sign the petition asking Del Marshall to resign. I am a resident of Virginia, and I am embarrassed.

    • Yes, but WE can’t sign the petition, can we? Y’all need to get over your embarrassment and start walking that petition around town. Set up a table at the grocery store. Because right now, the only people I ever see taking an active role in government on a grassroots level are conservatives and really cool, green college kids. Who usually need the money.

  24. I’m embarrassed to say that he is my representative, but I certainly didn’t vote for him.

  25. I’ve been spitting mad ever since I read this A$$hat’s statements. I called his office and told him he was an A$$hat. I sent him email and told him what an a$$hat he is. And now there’s audio of him defending his ludicrous position.

    Additionally, he has taken down the ‘contact’ page with his email address and phone numbers because he’s too big of a chicken to face the consequences of what he’s said.

    I have a special needs child. If anything he is a GIFT from god, not a punishment. Bob Marshall is a punishment.

  26. Good grief – this is on the same level as what’s his face who said women who’ve been raped can’t get pregnant. One word comes to mind (okay, maybe more than one) —IGNORAMUS

    It makes me ashamed to be a Christian!!

    • IGNORAMUS!!!! That’s putting it mildly.

      They’ve got a”Creationist Museum” in Tennessee
      that depicts cavemen riding dinosaurs!!!

      The think a Thesaurus is a dinosaur with a cleft pallet!!

      And we’re in fear of Islamic fundamentalism!?!?!? HUH!!!!

      The Christian Zealots live amongst us.

      They’re invisible, in their ubiquity.

  27. Does that hold true for women who buy or rent handicapped children also?

    • ear you.

  28. With luck, Bob Marshall (and his philosphy) will go to the heaven he envisions because I plan to go to hell to be safe from his like.

    If Bob thinks this little piece of warped thinking is suitable for public airing, I can only imagine the horrors he spouts when he feels safe in a room full of fellow believers. Funny how the “God will smite you” gang never seems to think it will happen to them, the most deserving of smite-hood.

  29. Marshall says:
    “when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,”

    So when a women has 3-8 kids then has an abortion, poor little ole nature DOESN’T take its vengeance?

  30. What a disgusting, self-rightious pig.

    Cheers to Planned Parenthood, in whatever manner they operate.

  31. Ignoramus to the MAX! What a stupid sounding man that Mr. Marshall is.

  32. Still waiting for Palin’s outrage and all we hear is crickets.

    • Nope Claudia…you won’t hear a peep from Say-RAH (I call her this because she sounds like a cheerleader when she speaks) on this and there again she will further prove (not that we need any more proof) that she is more adolescent in her thoughts than those that follow her will admit. Now this comment by Marshall is the VERY thing she should pipe up about, but as usual she remains silent when she shouldn’t. She is still riding high on her high school “MEAN GIRL” persona and making a complete fool of herself and her family. What?? She’s been out of high school 25-30 years now?? It’s a sad commentary for her when NO ONE can speak of her post secondary achievements, but continue to bring up her high school “mean girl” days. That alone is why you won’t hear from her on this issue because even if she is outraged, she won’t be able to articulate it properly. So it may be better for her to keep her mouth shut because she’ll probably inadvertently side with Marshall with all of her babbling double talk.

  33. Palin will say nothing about this. Her silence will condone this douchebags twisted views and there will yet again be no separation of church and state shown.

  34. Huff po is reporting that Bristol Palin is going to be appearing on The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC).
    Apparently she is going to be promoting abstinence.

    The Palin motto:
    Do as I say, not as I do.

    This is a good show. My teenage daugher watches it. Why does this girl of priviledge get to talk about abstinence???
    There are teenage mothers in my daughters school working two jobs, going to school, getting state assistance. That is a teenage mother who needs to talk about abstaining from sex.
    What is Bristol going to do? Say, “oh, being a young mother is so hard…just the other day little Tripp thru up all over my Louis Vuitton bag…not the big one, but the one I keep his bottles in…gosh.. and it is so hard keeping Tripp and Trig cause my mom is always off on book signings or doing 100,000 speeches and I have to let the maid in to clean the house sometimes and all I want to do is just chill yall…. but there is always a plane to get on and places to go…i mean, gosh…its hard…”

    donne moi un f-ing break….

  35. Marshall was simply doing his best imitation of sentient beings. He is a moron par excellence.

    I wonder which bit of scripture he is basing his exegesis on? He seems to be most conversant with the Book of Stupid.

    I think that it is interesting that Marshall’s “god” has such poor aim, a kind of scattershot “shoot from the hip and hit anyone in the way” approach. You’d think that an omnipotent creator of all would be a better marksman. Is this god’s idea of justice to punish the innocent for the sins of the guilty? Doesn’t really make me want to sign up and worship Marshall’s sky wizard.

    However, according to Marshall, it appears that it is OK to punish children for the screw-ups of their parents. Does that mean I can give Marshall’s kids a great big dope slap because their dad is an imbecile?

  36. If this has already been posted, my apologies… But here is a petition asking this horrible person to apologize & resign:

  37. You have the phone numbers worng Shannyn. THe calls should go to Timothy P. Shriver at speical Olympics Special Olympics

    1133 19th Street, N.W.

    Washington, DC 20036-3604 USA

    1 (202) 628-3630

    1 (800) 700-8585

    1 (202) 824-0200 (Fax)

    He’s the one who had the problem with Rahm Emanual’s use of the R-word in a private meeting.

  38. Speaker of the VA House – Bill Howell
    Phone: (804) 698-1028
    FAX: (804) 786-6310

    He is a Republican – perhaps calling here and asking for censure would help.

  39. You know Shannyn, I am a Christian. I was raised a Christian. And for the life of me, I do not know what God these right-wing, conservative, neo-cons, Teabaggers, whatever you want to call them, are claiming to serve. Because He is surely not the one I believe in and see evidenced in the goodness around me each and every day.

  40. I’m pretty sure Bob’s covered by Sarah’s “infallibilty of God” clause.

  41. Well, he made a statement of purported fact. Now — which newspeople are going to negate those “facts” with actual figures? Who is pounding on their adding machine for us?

    Is it Rachel? I bet it is!

  42. Feel free to follow the ongoing saga of Delegate Boob’s asshattery on my blog:

    The man is a certifiable dimwit.

  43. […] Will Palin’s Satire Clause Cover Delegate Bob Marshall? Well, I’m waiting for the great defender of special-needs families to tell Bob Marshall of Virginia just how […] […]

  44. What a nasty little man.

    I agree with oregonbird @ 1:24. Residents of Virginia need to stand up and organize.

  45. O/T

    Someone on HP posted this video link for Sarah’s Biggest LIE

    Something about Trig’s crinkled ear and there being two babies….it went so fast I couldn’t keep up….wondered if there’s any validity to this Shannyn and could this be the BIG secret that Levi was referring to that could end her career???

  46. Shannon, Thank you..for all the info you bring to us.. I read something this
    AM that when Palin was governor, prison inmates were not allowed to take
    their meds…Could you tell me if that is true?? Thanks, Shannon- and Thanks to all of your followers- I read your comments and feel that I know
    you…a little bit….!

  47. What wordpress template do you use?
