Harlem Hate Pastor Returns To Daily Show

  • Happy Dance

    “You know we can hear you…right?” LMAO!!

    • JT

      I wonder how large his “congregation” is. They can hear him every week.

      • Reality.Bites

        I suppose if someone was interested and had some time to kill, they could stand outside and count the number of people going in.

        Every church I’ve ever seen has a sign outside mentioning when services take place. I’d bet a semen-flavoured latte there’s no such sign on this “church.”

        • OrliJoe in Fla

          Would that be a mocha, venti, semen flavored latte by any chance?

          • JT

            Manning: “Short on the mocha and trenta on the semen please!”

      • Mark

        Can’t lose what you don’t have…..

      • I’ve been wondering this very thing – who are these people and how can they stand living in Manhattan?

    • Chicago joe

      Closely followed by “what’s going on in that head of yours?”

  • Homo Erectus

    A legend in his own mind.

  • oikos

    Is she leaving the DS as well? I love her interviews.

    • Bluto

      She’s great. I hope Jessica sticks around.

  • Mark

    Incredible!!! Finally there is empirical evidence of a nasty, jagged rip in the time/space continuum….and just look at what fell out!

  • JT

    He says he can’t describe the semen flavored latte evidence? LOL. If he would just come out and say he knows what semen tastes like and that’s his evidence that would be more honest.

    • Mark

      If I were inclined….I could describe it for him…… I did say “IF”

      • Reality.Bites

        Well I know what smoked salmon tastes like, but I don’t know what it tastes like in coffee. So if you can describe what semen tastes like in a latte, well you’ve got some explaining to do!

        • SFBruce

          What amazed me about the semen in coffee bit is, apparently, he brought this up ON HIS OWN. With absolutely no prompting, or evidence, he just couldn’t resist showing us what an absolute idiot he is.

    • David Walker

      As Clinton never inhaled, the Lovely Reverend Preacher Mr. Manning never swallowed.

      • JT

        You don’t need to swallow to taste. As a wine taster might do, he could spit after savoring the taste.

  • crewman

    That was an awesome follow-up. I would have assumed these people were pissed for being set up or something. But it really did just give a large platform to their crazy hate, and they didn’t feel misrepresented, and they didn’t get the joke.

    • SFBruce

      I loved it for the same reason. I knew that the people they interviewed were for real, but I always wondered if they knew what was happening and how they felt about the outcome, but Jessica Williams clarified it all in that one sentence, “Yes, they do know who we are, and they don’t care because we bring a camera with us.” Absolutely hilarious, and the best way to trip up these people; just give them enough rope, and stand back with the popcorn.

      • Kruhn

        Well in their minds, they think they showed up the liberal assholes. Plus they hope one or two of the Jon Stewart watchers might be turned to their side of their argument.

    • josephsinger

      Many people are just media whores. Just getting their name out on teevee is enough for them.

  • joeyj1220

    This is awesome… and simply proves that these right-wing asshats clearly lack the ability to self reflect

  • The anti-Christ must be sore pissed that Hitler, Son of Satan, and Jizzuchinos get more air time.

  • JeffreyMGr

    The crazy runs deep in that one

  • DaddyRay

    Thanks Ray-Gun for closing the mental institutions and putting these people out on the street untreated.

  • Brian in Valdosta

    I know that we casually bandy about words like “nuts” and “kookoo” and phrases like “batshit crazy” and “he’s on the cray-cray train” in this comments forum. Everyone everywhere does it these days, right? When someone says or does something silly, we shriek, “What are you, nuts?”

    But people: this person is truly insane. I mean that in the most literal clinical and medical sense possible. He is not in touch with reality.

    The whole bit with the cake sets that tone right away. He doesn’t see it for the very clearly sarcastic jab that it is. The reporters are supposed to be “sorry”? For what exactly? For quoting him verbatim on the batshit crazy bullshit that he dribbles from his mouth in a frothy drool?

    The man belongs in a mental institution.

    • non

      He’s a troll, but he’s not insane. Yes, he holds a lot of unconventional and unpopular beliefs and expresses them in an exaggerated manner, but that isn’t a clinical or medical definition of insanity. He’s not hurting anyone or himself. He seems like a nonviolent, stable person to me. Take the semen in coffee example. He admits he does not have empirical evidence. That demonstrates that he is connected with reality, and he knows that what he is saying is speculative.

      The only reason you want to call him clinically insane is because you know that doing so carries a certain social stigma. That’s an unfair and gross tactic. Good job, I like your style.

      • Brian in Valdosta

        I appreciate the fact that there is likely a high level of theatre involved in the “exaggerated manner” in which this loon is making his claims and remarks, that he is trying to draw attention to himself by making not only a loud noise but a strange one at that. It turns people’s heads, makes them notice him. I get it.

        His minor nod to recognizing that he doesn’t have empirical evidence regarding the semen lattes doesn’t save him from the stamp of “lunatic” in my view, though. It’s the way that – when faced with the lack of empirical evidence for ALL of his stoopid claims – he just blithely smiles into the camera and brushes reality off his shoulder like flakes of dandruff and basically says, “I’m ready for my close-up, Mr Demille.”

    • Justandra

      Are you the tap dancing Brian from Valdookie?

      • Brian in Valdosta

        Lap-dancing, not tap-dancing.

  • leastyebejudged

    I think I see how this works now.

    Make a outrageous claim that garners attention, to promote your ideals…

    And hope somebody is sufficiently outraged enough to talk about it.

    After all, no PR is bad PR in this modern age.

    And you can always rely on the outrage factor.

  • Clive Johnson

    Semen in Starbucks lattes. He admits lack of evidence, but believes it to be true nonetheless.

    So, how does this work exactly? Male employees are given ‘The Talk’ after hire about getting “milked” a couple of times a day? A third party supplier pays 50 cents for every load by walk-in donors which is then sold to Starbucks for a dollar?

    • MattM

      He also believes in God, without a shred of evidence to prove “He” exists.

      • Clive Johnson

        Yes…equally as crazy in my view.

        • MattM

          You know, as dumb as I think it is, I can kind of understand believing in a higher power. But the idea that said figure could be so narrow, shallow, vengeful and petty honestly doesn’t make sense. If an omnipresent being is capable of creating the infinite Universe and everything in it, then why would it constrict human behavior so heavily? Why would God be so merciless and spiteful if it’s capable of infinity?

          • Clive Johnson

            I would probably agree with that.

            I have no belief in a great intelligence behind everything, but like you I can also understand the intuitive appeal of it. On rational grounds though I can easily dispense with the idea, especially after having invested hundreds of hours in reading material in the philosophy of religion.

            In line with what you’re saying I also am dubious about an anthropomorphized god: An intelligence beyond imagining but one that’s also coupled to suspiciously human-like failings and impulses? Absurd!

          • Steve Teeter

            Indeed. Shall we go back to worshiping Zeus? He meets your description.

          • popebuck1

            The best explanation I’ve heard of this phenomenon goes as follows: The unknown exists, and it’s in humankind’s nature to project an explanation onto that void. So the kind of God each person comes up with reflects the nature of the person who projected it. If you’re a naturally loving and generous person, you will believe in a loving and expansive God. If you’re a fearful, limited, bigoted person full of hate, your God will reflect exactly that.

            Note that this paradigm also applies to how atheists observe the universe – it can either be a place of wonder where the power of human love rules supreme, or a fearful, meaningless place where it’s every man for himself. Your view of the universe, as much as your view of any potential deity, all just reflects what’s already there in YOU.

    • Schlukitz

      It’s consistent with his lack of evidence of sky daddies, angels, Immaculate Conceptions, miracles and people rising from the dead.

      If he can get his head around all of that, semen-laced latte is a piece of cake.

      Extra charge, of course.

  • Bill

    She is PERFECTION.

  • Nathan Broussard

    People go to that church and believe that incredible bull shit, that’s scary.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Thank you DS for showing the country just how real and crazy the people they interview really are. Wow.

  • avidreader

    Yes, the pastor is insane, but he is quite eloquent, isn’t he? And his voice is nice too. I now understand better why he appeals to his congregation.

  • MDB

    A new tag for Joe to add to these crazy RWNJ looneytunes cases: buffoonery !

  • fastlanestranger

    Jessica is so incredible. Her ability to emote and express in the face of insanity is unmatched and priceless. I love you Jessica!!!!

  • MonochromeMouse

    i don’t understand why they didn’t choose Jessica Williams as John Stewart’s replacement she is by far the most entertaining of all of the current correspondents

    • Octavio

      Well, you know . . . women aren’t funny. (or some bullshit)

  • mikeinrkfd

    “What is going on inside that head of yours?” Would we really want to know?

  • Princess Lardass

    Many of you will disagree with me, but, to me, this guy comes off as a clueless jackass and a maliciously goofy joke. Even when I was a kid (long before I came out to myself), I heard shit like this, and I’d roll my eyes because I ‘saw’ it for what it was: SHIT.

    People like Tony Perkins, Bryan Fischer, Peter LaBarbera, Brian Brown, and Scott Lively are the one’s who have clout and pose a threat to us. Some can lobby congress for ‘religious freedom’ legislation while others who are on the fringe can travel to other countries to peddle their poison (Lively in Uganda, Brown in Russia, LaBarbera in Jamaica).

  • skeptical_inquirer

    It’s like the camera acts like a truth drug for nutters. And it seems addictive.

    And it’s mind-boggling to come back for a second round. (I love her reaction that the man didn’t need help being seen as a buffoon)
