This is not a joke:

A Hush Over Hollywood

by Pat Sajak

...So I’m trying to understand the nearly universal lack of outrage coming from Hollywood over the brutal murder of Dutch director, Theo van Gogh...

Yes, folks -- we're now being lectured on morality by right-wing game-show hosts (with assent from an amen corner of right-wing bloggers.)

OK, Pat, I'll start slowly.

Here's van Gogh, your hero -- this guy, with the brassiere on his face. (Actually, I think that's a funny photo, but you're a conservative, so I don't think you're allowed to agree.)

Oh, and Pat, you do know about the near-naked breasts in the film that got van Gogh killed, don't you? Heck, if anyone tried to show "Submission" on broadcast TV in the U.S., your pals in the Bush/Powell FCC would levy a big, fat fine.

But -- most important -- what do we know about van Gogh's ideas and opinions? Well, here's a sample:

He pictured Jewish TV presenter Ms Sonja Barend in a concentration camp. Jewish author Leon de Winter he pictured in "Treblinka [camp] style fornication with barbed wire around his dick."

When Jewish historian Ms Evelien Gans criticized Van Gogh, he wrote in Folia Civitatis magazine: "I suspect that Ms Gans gets wet dreams about being fucked by Dr Mengele [Nazi doctor at Auschwitz]." He hoped (Volkskrant, February 1995) Ms Gans would sue him: "Because then Ms Gans will have to explain in court that she claims that she does not get wet dreams about Dr Mengele." ...

Anja Meulenbelt quotes Theo van Gogh, who said that feminists should stop campaigning against husbands' violence in marriages: "Gentlemen who give a tough hiding are quite attractive to some ladies really." ...

Van Gogh ... opposed all socialism in his columns. Van Gogh wrote on Paul Rosenmöller, ex dockworker, then Green Left party leader: "May he get a joy bringing brain tumor. Let us piss on his grave"....

Van Gogh routinely substituted “goatfucker” for “immigrant to The Netherlands from an Islamic country.” Including in his book Allah knows best, 2001: "There is a Fifth Column of goatfuckers in this country, who despise and spit at its native people. They hate our freedom." "Soon, the Fifth Column of goatfuckers will hurl poison gas, diseases and atomic bombs at your children and my children.” ...

There's your hero, Pat. Hey, why don't you organize a Hollywood tribute to him?
