Shut Up Fool! Awards-Friday The 13th Edition

Well, since today is Friday The 13th, it's time to show some fear and loathing to the people who made us cringe in terror by flapping their gums to let the most asinine comments come out of their mouths this week.

Where's Jason and Freddy Krueger when you need them?

And now, this week's nominees for the Shut Up Fool! Awards.

Contestant Number One is somebody I figured would be nominated sooner or later for this honor, newly minted RNC chair Michael Steele.

He parted his lips on Sunday to say in criticism of Brother President's economic stimulus package that 'he believes that government-funded jobs don't count as real employment because "a job is something that a business owner creates."

The government doesn't create jobs. Let's get this notion out of our heads that the government creates jobs. Not in the history of mankind has the government ever created a job. ... Those 2 to 4 million jobs that are projected won't happen. Trust me.

Contestant Number Two is Bill O'Reilly. In this Faux News clip, he mockingly compares Helen Thomas, the dean of the White House press cord to the 'Wicked Witch of the East'

Contestant Number Three is Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson.

At a time when the Catholic Church and the Vatican is mimicking the Dubya blueprint for winning friends and influencing people is pissing people off left right and center, they added the worldwide Jewish community to that increasingly long list.

Pope Benedict XVI lifts his excommunication of him and then Williamson goes on Swedish TV January 24 to state that the Holocaust didn't happen, there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz and only 300,000 Jews died as opposed to the accepted figure of six million.

Hello, all you need to do is take a trip to Auschwitz or Google it to eyeball them. 1 million people died just at Auschwitz alone with about 900,000 being Jewish. Google 'Wannsee Conference' to note who was at the top of the list for extermination.

So Bishop Richard Williamson, shut up fool! You're our winner this week.

I even have seen one of the Lambshades that many call a myth. Worse: I saw it at a desk in the flat of my grandparents. You can think of the shame and guilt such heritage gives me. I had the suspission very early but was told it was not human skin (while it was very obvious) and I later in my life googled until I saw one of this lamps in reports of Buchenau which was exactly built the same way.

Hey, Monica, how come former Hitler Youth member Pope Ratzi didn't make your list? I think his comments comparing 'saving the two genders' to saving the rainforest deserves a SUF award. No fair!

Williamson's statement in this video is also so disgusting because he's trying to say '6,000,000 Jews were not killed in gas chambers'. Well, duh, millions of Jews were shot by Eisatzkommando (usually made up of fascists from Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Croatia & cossacks). They didn't use gas chambers until the last 18-20 mos. of the war, they used guns. Gas chambers were developed to save on ammunition. Williamson is trying to wrangle out of his bigoted stupidity by using this technicality. And yes, at Buchenwald they had camp prisoners tattooed with 'decorative' designs specifically so they could use their skin after they killed them for lampshades and bookcovers. 80% of my parent's families' died in the death camps Ratzi's friend calls workcamps. I can look through numerous family photo albums where literally everyone in it died in the death camps. Yeesh. "Fool" is actually too nice a word for Williamson, since it suggests a certain innocent naiveté.

He deserves a SUF Lifetime Achievement nomination.
