(I was hoping that by the time Olbermann had made it to his 100th episode, he would have already been able to make a "We've Won. The Long Nightmare Is Finally Over" sort of episode. Alas, no.)

(EDIT) Latest edit: January 12, 2017, to add episode #20. Future episodes will be in a new post. (/EDIT)

Keith Olbermann rants crazily, so that I don't have to.

(EDIT) Last edit: December 12, 2016, to add episode #10. Okay, so 10 episodes per post will be the limit. I'll start a new post for the next 10. (/EDIT)

I'm just going to leave these here. Watch them if you want. Or not. I think they're pretty important, anyway, for the most part. *shrug*

I'll add and update this post with more embeds below as more such videos are made. Or I might split it into another post (or more) if/when it starts to get a bit crowded. I obviously have no idea how long Mr. Olbermann will continue with this series, after all.

I know I'm pretty much shouting into the void here with these Twitter rehash posts on LJ, but fuck it, I don't care. It's cathartic, if absolutely nothing else.

Rant behind cut )

(Follow up to this.)

I'm seeing some people saying things like "It's free speech, they should be able to burn whatever books they want" or "Well, I don't see anyone telling the Muslims not to murder to keep people from burning the Quran, so why are we telling people not to burn the Quran to keep the Muslims from murdering" and such.

First of all, okay, yeah, sure, burning a book is protected by free speech, I suppose, maybe? I don't know if it is or isn't. It probably is, and that's swell. Okay, but even if you're totally within your rights to burn a Quran, I'm still going to exercise my own right of free speech here to say that I think you are a stupid jackass for doing so.

Second of all, well, if you are the type who would burn a Quran to begin with, then it's fairly obvious that you're probably one of those who feels that all Muslims are terrorists anyway. (As always, I find that notion ridiculous, of course, but let's run with this for a bit.) I mean, it's not like there's one Quran that the Muslim terrorists use and then another different Quran that the rest of the Muslims use. (Any more than there's a different Bible that Fred Phelps uses, so I guess that makes all Christians just like Mr. Phelps, yeah? So I guess we should start burning Bibles too, huh?) Okay, so we've established that all Muslims are terrorists who will kill at the drop of a hat, with me so far? Good. So then, why in the blue hell would you do something so stupid as to burn a Quran? That would be like waving a red cape in front of an angry bull and then being surprised when he charges and tramples you (or the soldiers that are there trying to protect you from the angry bull).

It's just like that whole Everybody Draw Mohammed Day thing that went on a while back. If you were inclined to support or participate in that, then it's a safe bet that you already thought that all Muslims were assholes anyway, therefore what did you care if you pissed them off? Well, same as with burning the Quran, just because you can be a complete douchebag and do something like that, should you? Especially if you already believe that all Muslims everywhere are murderers who would rather kill you than give you the time of day, then why would you needlessly antagonize them like this? Would you also throw a rock at a nest of hornets and then be all whiny when they swarmed down and stung you? The Muslims are obviously (in your eyes) a sub-human force of evil who will kill anything that moves no matter what you do, so why bother drawing their ire even more so? If they really are what you believe them to be, then burning the Quran (or drawing Mohammed) isn't going to make them stop. It's just going to make them worse, so why bother doing it? Again, all that it does is make you look like a stupid jackass and needlessly piss off everyone else (yes, even non-Muslims).

On the other hand, if I am right, and most Muslims aren't terrorist asshats, then you are angering a large number of people undeservedly just to spite the few who are. And that, I believe, is far worse. But anyway, why should I care what you think? You're just a stupid asshat who thinks it's okay to burn a book.

(EDIT)

On this issue, even Glenn Beck (of all people, amazingly) makes a bit of sense. (Though why he's comparing this in any way to the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque" thing is beyond me.)

And here's Keith Olbermann's take on it. (I think he's trying a bit too hard to paint this as a "Ha ha, look, the Republicans obviously support the Quran burning by not speaking out against it!" thing, but aside from that, he's pretty much on point as well. The military guy he interviewed nailed it, though.)
