Watch out Westboro Baptists. There’s a new church in town:
The Eastboro Baptists are the only true followers of Godâ€™s word! Everyone else WILL be damned to burn in eternal Hell fire!
We do not need scripture to verify this statement. We have heard it from God himself! Repent! (everyone else but us) For you have sinned! You have been born different from us, and this is an abomination unto God for which your souls WILL be damned!
God hates EVERYONE except the Eastboro Baptists. This includes FAGS, black people, every other race except white people, fat people, unattractive people, cancer patients, children, babies, Mexicans, Swedes, Norwegians, Scandinavia in general, non-Americans, all other Americans except us, immigrants (illegal and legal), feminists, liberals, aborted fetusâ€™ (for they have committed the ultimate sin), the cognitively disabled, deaf people, blind people, scientists, Darwin, environmentalists, Al Gore, Jews, Catholics, Evangelicals, Mormons, Muslims (except for the ones who hate the U.S.), Musselman’s Applesauce, people who follow any religion other than our imaginative version of Christianity, citizens of whatever town we happen to be picketing in, victims of any tragedy that makes the national news and their family and friends, kittens, etc. — You are all sinners in the eyes of the almighty God!
So that’s what happens when you mix LSD with Helium.

Since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the U.S. government has spent nearly $500 million on an Arabic language television and radio station.
Now an investigation finds that the project has not only been poorly run and hemorrhaged taxpayer money but is also airing bizarrely anti-American and anti-semitic coverage despite repeated complaints from the State Department and Congress.
ProPublica, in a joint investigation with 60 Minutes, finds that the al-Hurra network — “the Free One” in Arabic — has completely failed in its initial mission to counter the influence of the Qatar-based al-Jazeera news network in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.
For starters, there are problems with the staff, which often does not have any Arabic language skills or a background in broadcast journalism:
