Courtesy of The Green Knight, here’s a picture of another grieving Mom:


Green Knight adds:

…this man went to his death voluntarily and heroically. He was an adult when he did it.

Apparently, according to the modern pro-war right, most of which thinks it’s Christian, his mom shouldn’t have been unhappy about it.

Green Knight, with apologies to Cenk Uyger ("What Fox News Channel Would Have Done to Rosa Parks"), then adds "What Fox News Would Have Done to the Virgin Mary":

O’Reilly: "Mary has for a long time aligned herself with the most radical elements on the left, calling for socialist redistribution of wealth and the overthrow of the government. She is an anti-Roman traitor, simple as that."

Hannity: “Could the Virgin Mary be angling for a Senate run? What does she have to gain from her public show of grief? Coming up next, the incredible story of how this woman might be deceiving the whole Empire!”

Limbaugh: “We have just found information that, after being told that her son was about God’s business, the Virgin Mary sometimes thought he was out of his mind. Ah-ha! A flip-flopper!"

Malkin: “I think I speak for Jesus’ entire family when I say that they are so embarrassed by his mother who is making a public spectacle of herself.”

O’Reilly: “To question the government of Imperial Judea and implicitly the entire Roman Empire has to be considered treasonous. These people are criminals, simple criminals. It’s ridiculous that they think they don’t have to live by the same rules as the rest of us.”

Coulter: “The Virgin Mary is a whore! She was pregnant before she was even married!”

Blitzer: “Simon Peter, can you confirm whether Mary has in fact questioned her son’s ministry in the past? Do you think this makes her a flip-flopper? If she has been so inconsistent on this, how can we trust her on anything?”

O’Reilly: “Unbelievable, just unbelievable. Ridiculous!”

Hannity: “Incredible!”

In Unison: “Flip-flopper! Flip-flopper! Flip-flopper!”

Oh, Green Knight.  You get the prize.
