Books, movies, politics, and whatever I want

Quote of the Day

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

“Haven’t you noticed this? The American left is always waxing hysterical about right-wing violence and the true violence always comes from the American left. The American news media cry out in horror at peaceful Tea Party demonstrations and look the other way when Occupy Wall Streeters commit vandalism, rape, and even murder. The media try to pin any political assassination attempt on conservatives; yet almost all American political assassinations are committed by the left… . Leftism requires this illegitimate use of force — this use of violence — because free individuals simply will not do what leftists, in their wisdom, have decided is right and good.”

Today’s roundup post is by Jonah Goldberg:

Democratic senator hired an unpaid intern who was an undocumented immigrant but a documented sex offender. Apparently Senator Menendez needed an immigrant to do sex offending that Americans won’t do.

Meanwhile, Representative Jim Moran is “embarrassed” by the revelation that his voter-fraud-orchestrating son smashed his girlfriend’s face into a garbage can and pleaded guilty to assault. The girlfriend appears to be doing what she can to make the story go away. But don’t worry, the phrase “war on women” may still only be used to describe people who don’t want to pay for someone else’s birth control. No word if anyone on the left will be expressing their gratitude for the Violence Against Women Act for this.

Over in Michigan, defenders of the union protestors who tore down an Americans for Prosperity tent are heading toward trutherism, suggesting that it was all a set up, the canvas-and-rope equivalent of the Reichstag fire. No word yet if anyone is claiming the Jews inside the tent got advance notice.

Oh, and after months — nay years — of rhetoric from the president and his proxies about how taxes are simply a sign of neighborliness and the dues we pay to live in this great country, we learn that Obama’s staff owe nearly a million dollars in back taxes.

And the Republicans are losing to these guys.

HT to Mr Reynolds, who is correct in his assessment.   Just another example of how you would rarely loose money betting on Congressional Republicans to screw the pooch.

Meanwhile in Wisconsin…

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Death threats against legislators, which the MSM ignores because the targets of the death threats are Republicans.

Threats made against blogger Ann Althouse for publishing actual facts about the Union protests.

Wisconsin Senate Republican Dan Kapanke has had his his property was vandalized and had death threats.

This must that “new civility” the leftists have been talking about…

Extra bonus democrat corruption outside Wisconsin:

Two Democratic Party leaders in Michigan face nine felony counts for trying to fix an election.  The real news here is that they are actually facing charges, given that election fraud is reliable method of collecting democrat votes.

Update20 Days of Left-Wing Thuggery in Wisconsin: When Will Obama, Democrats, and MSM Call for Civility?

I’m not advising you to hold your breath waiting for it.

Update 2: Death Threats by the Dozens in Wisconsin.  What is it with so called “liberals” and death threats against anybody who dares to disagree with them?  Why is the left so afraid of an open debate of ideas?  The next question is just how stupid these death threat making liberals really are.  Perhaps the  answer lies with this idiot, who posts death threats from his twitter account.

When democrats Attack!

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Time for another exciting chapter of “When democrats Attack!”

Let us start with a bit of “blue on blue” action.

Rep. Carnahan, democrat from Missouri, had his office firebombed.  Of course, the open minded and tolerant liberals blamed someone from the “Tea Party,” despite there being absolutely no history of violence from that group.

So, who actually firebombed the offices of the democrat from Missouri? Well, it turns out that it was one of his own staffers, a liberal democrat by the name of Chris Powers.

Let’s follow that up with a NYC leftist stabbing a Muslim cabdriver in the neck for…wait for it…being a Muslim!

Big HT to Gateway Pundit for these stories the DNC/MSM won’t carry.

Just to round out the Hat Trick, here is another GP story about an open minded and tolerant leftist who verbally attacked an 82 year old Holocaust survivor.  The  open minded and tolerant leftist said that the 82 year old Holocaust survivor “obviously didn’t learn his lesson.”

A Public Service Announcement

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Remember that SEIU members attacking a black man attending a Tea Party protest is the only racial violence seen at a Tea Party protest.

More violent attacks on the 1st Amendment by the left.

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Brietbart TV has the Video of a Union thug attacking a citizen exercising his First Amendment rights.

HT to Gateway Pundit

This is not an isolated incident.

Update on the attacker from Moe Lane.

democrat Congressman reminds us of how he views the common rabble…

Monday, June 14th, 2010

He obviously has a low view of serfs daring to ask him questions. He forgets that here in America, the “serfs” are free citizens, and he bloody well is answerable to them.  Hopefully, November will bring some change to North Carolina and this clown will be looking for a new job.

Tea Party members: A cross section of America

Monday, April 5th, 2010

If you listen to CNN/MSNBC/etc, you would think the people who attend Tea Party protests are a bunch of racist, violent militia members. The MSM is desperately trying to portray them as an “out of touch” fringe element.

Well, the actual truth is quite a bit different. According to this recent poll, Tea Party members are a pretty fair representation of America.

The national breakdown of the Tea Party composition is 57 percent Republican, 28 percent Independent and 13 percent Democratic, according to three national polls by the Winston Group, a Republican-leaning firm that conducted the surveys on behalf of an education advocacy group. Two-thirds of the group call themselves conservative, 26 are moderate and 8 percent say they are liberal.

The group is united around two issues – the economy/jobs and reducing the deficit. They believe that cutting spending is the key to job creation and favor tax cuts as the best way to stimulate the economy. That said 61 percent of Tea Party members believe infrastructure spending creates jobs. Moreover, given the choice Tea Party members favor 63-32 reducing unemployment to 5 percent over balancing the budget.

Gallup conducted another poll that shows similar results.

Tea Party supporters skew right politically; but demographically, they are generally representative of the public at large. That’s the finding of a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted March 26-28, in which 28% of U.S. adults call themselves supporters of the Tea Party movement.

Tea Party supporters are decidedly Republican and conservative in their leanings. Also, compared with average Americans, supporters are slightly more likely to be male and less likely to be lower-income.

In several other respects, however — their age, educational background, employment status, and race — Tea Partiers are quite representative of the public at large.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air points out “The educational background of Tea Party followers almost exactly matches that of the general population.  Among age demos, the differences between the two are no more than two points for any of the four categories used by Gallup.  The same is true of employment profiles, although ironically Tea Party followers tend slightly more to be employed full-time than not.”  He continues on to note that Fox News is gaining viewers, while the left leaning MSNBC & CNN, who have been bashing the Tea party members non-stop, are loosing views at an accelerated rate.  Could this trend have something to do with those left leaning “news” organizations demonizing the people who watch them?

Since  we are looking at polls, let us review the results of this  Rasmussen poll.

On major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is closer to their views than President Barack Obama. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 44% hold the opposite view and believe the president’s views are closer to their own.
Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly feel closer to the Tea Party and most Democrats say that their views are more like Obama’s. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, 50% say they’re closer to the Tea Party while 38% side with the President.

That’s right, more people agree with the Tea Party movement than our Dear Leader.  There is literally enough on the liberal media bias on this subject to fill a book. Even given all these facts, I don’t expect MSNBC, CNN, ABC News or CBS News to discontinue their efforts to dehumanize members of the Tea Party movement.  Their goals, and the goals of most of America, just don’t match up anymore.

Update: Compare and contrast: Tea Party protest and leftist protest.  At the Tea Party, you have a peaceful demonstration with a multi-racial crowd calling for a return to the principles of the Founding Fathers.  At the leftist demonstration, you have  racists calling for violence against minorities, people holding up signs supporting murdering communist thugs and 9/11 Troofers. Which one do you thing better represents most Americans?

Update: The left’s astroturf response is pretty quick on this topic. I’ve already gotten two identical comments on this, from the same IP address, with two different identifying email addresses. The comment is what you would expect from the left, completely free of any facts and repeats the left’s hate filled talking points multiple times.  Here is one of the facts the left doesn’t want you to know. The only violence at a tea party was four white democrats, wearing purple SEIU t-shirts, attacked a Tea Party protester, who is Black, and beat him so badly he ended up in the hospital. The “liberal” attackers didn’t miss out on using racial slurs while attacking Mr. Gladney.

I’m not kidding about the leftist astroturfing. I’ve found the identical comment in at least six different blog comment streams.

Update: CNN sends a reporter without a political ax to grind to a Tea Party, and finds that they really are Mainstream Americans and are not violent racists!  Shannon Travis, the CNN reporter in question, does repeats the debunked “n-word” and spitting claims against Tea Party members. Andrew Breitbart has upped the bounty to $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund to anybody who can provide a video proving that Tea Party members used racial slur against democrat Georgia Rep. John Lewis.  Given that videos show his staffers had their cell phones out and were taking videos when he walked through the Tea Party crowd (instead of taking the underground tunnel that members of Congress typically use) they shouldn’t have a problem collecting $100,000 for the United Negro College Fund if there was any truth to their claims.

democrats against the First Amendment

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Yet another case of democrat‘s utter contempt for a Free Press (at least when it isn’t acting in their benefit).

Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack tried to question democrat Martha Coakley out side a fund raiser in Washington, D.C. (Coakley is  running for the Senate in Massachusetts, where her Republican opponent has no problem raising funds) and was “roughed upfor daring to exercise his First Amendment rights.

Don’t expect this type of behavior from democrat Martha Coakley if she gets elected to the US Senate.

More at Frugal Cafe, Hot Air & Michelle Malkin’s site.

Update: Coakley aide Michael Meehan admits he shoved Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack to the ground.

The rational and calm leftist response

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Here are two examples of how the left deals with their political opponents.

First we have a Pro-Life Activist shot outside a school.

Second there is a bomb threat against the Tea Party organizers in Washington, D.C.

So much for calm and rational debate.
