World Net Daily video columnist Molotov Mitchell (yeah we’d never heard of him before this either) has employed some creative logic to come to these conclusions: Dan Savage is worse than the Westboro Baptist Church, and he should fly with the church to Iraq to protest ISIS.
How did Mitchell and his Final Cut Pro filters arrive at these entirely off-putting statements?
Well as only seems fitting given the absurdity, it all starts with the death of Robin Williams.
Westboro announced plans to picket Williams’ funeral, because they are horrible. No surprise there.
Natually, this pissed a lot of people off, including British TV comedian Adam Hills, who had this to say:
“If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life,” Hills said on his show The Last Leg, “how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?”
He then went on to offer to pick up the tab for their first class airfare to Baghdad.
Westboro has apparently accepted his offer, though details are scarce on whether or not they’re really going.
And that’s the farcical backstory which prompted Molotov to go on an unprovoked rant about Dan Savage, using cutesy animation and annoying background music to mask the totally absurd assertion that “all Dan Savage has done is complain about how oppressive America is towards gays,” and that he should put his money where his mouth is by joining Westboro in Iraq to protest their treatment of gay people.
The first tipoff of the crazy train is the production company that made the video, called “Illuminati Pictures.” For the record, Molotov is its president.
“We all know Dan Savage would never do that. He’s not a good enough person to do that,” he says. “The Westboros may be mean, they may be terrible — but they’re still better than Dan Savage.”
Here’s the bizarre video, which is a few thousand dollars of production value away from basically being this guy:
