Glenn Beck: A Hitler Devotee

In today’s issue of The Telegraph Glenn Beck States:

There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that’s all about politics? Disturbing.”

Well, you do Glenn Beck.  His great patriotic 9/12 Project does just that.  They teach the tea party doctrine.  Teaching them religion, economics and politics. They have been doing all this summer.  So he must be a Hitler follower.

Glenn Beck is a racist, bigoted and homosexual hater.

I accuse him.  He has no respect for the additional pain that these statements have caused a nation in mourning.  He is ignorant.  I can’t call him stupid, because to be stupid implies that you no the difference between right and wrong, good and bad.  Beck doesn’t.  He is ignorant.

He is indiscriminate in his hatred and attacks.  He even attacks the Jewish faith.  No one is sacred to Beck.  No one that is except Glenn Beck himself.

I accuse him of being what is ugly in America.  I accuse him.

Yellow Journalism Is Alive: Thanks To Oslo

As I watched the events unfold yesterday in Oslo, the first thing that occurred to me was that no one had claimed responsibility for the bombing and shootings.  Does anyone really think, not believe, think that Al Qaeda, Muslims, would commit an act so heinous and not take full credit for the act?  It was obvious that they had not does this.  Obvious that is to me and probably many of you, but not to the New York Times, Washington Post and the BBC.

These well-known, print the truth only, media and journalism giants immediately said or suggested that it was Muslims responsible for the outrage in Oslo.  The Washington Post’s column still appears with no correction or update.  It implies that Muslims were guilty.

Only it wasn’t true.  It turns out that the alleged perpetrator wasn’t from an international Muslim organization at all, but was a right-wing Norwegian nationalist with a history of anti-Muslim commentary and love for Muslim hating blogs such as Pam Geller’s Atlas Shrugged, Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch and Daniel Pipes.   It seems now that the New York Times in some small way has realized that their eagerness in selling newspapers has backfired.  Still, they are trying hard to assign fault, even ultimate fault on Muslim radicals.

Terrorist specialists said that even if the authorities ultimately ruled our Islamic terrorism as the cause of Friday’s assaults, other kinds of groups or individuals were mimicking Al Qaeda’s brutality and multiple attacks.

If it does turn out to be someone with more political motivations, it shows these groups are learning from what they see from Al Qaeda, said Brian Fishman, a counterterrorism research at the New American Foundation in Washington.

Then there was this stunning passage from the NYT:

Initial  reports focused on the possibility of Islamic militants, in particular Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami, or Helpers of the Global Jihad, cited by some analysts as claiming responsibility for the attacks.  American officials said the group was previously unknown and might not even exist.

In other words, now that we know the alleged perpetrator is not Muslim, we know by definition that Terrorist are not responsible; conversely, when we thought Muslims were responsible, that meant – also by definition – that it was an act of Terrorism.

Are the only terrorists in the world Muslim?  If so, what do we call a right-wing nationalist capable of planting major bombs and killing scores of people for the sake of the greater glory of his cause?  Timothy McVey was a terrorist, the KKK was a terrorist, Skinheads are terrorists, the mafia is are terrorists.  None of which are Muslims.  Still, most or all or terrorists groups.

This yellow story maps and sets forth precisely how the “Muslim-did-it” myth was manufactured and then disseminated yesterday to the worldwide media, which repeated it without verifying that it was true. This article names names; it points to the incestuous,k self-regarding network of self-proclaimed U.S. Terrorism and foreign policy “experts” – what the article accurately describes as “almost always white men” who so often shape these media stories and are uncritically presented as experts, even thous they are drowning in bias, prejudice, nationalism, ignorance, stupidity, racism, and shallow or no credentials.

This is what the press, media always does.  In their eagerness to be first with the story, they leave out the truth.  They do not research or investigate to be sure that what they are going to print or say has any basis in fact.

Right-wing terrorism?  We in America can associate with that.  We’ve got Rep. Peter King, who is determined to rid of us all Muslims, Sarah Palin and her guns and God.  Good patriots all.

But they are terrorists too.

The New York Times should be ashamed.  What does it say in the corner?  “All the news that’s fit to print?”  Even if you make it up.

Thanks to Salon.com for part of this story.


Sarah Palin: Still The Unfinished Woman

No one can be surprised by this.  It is what she does best..quitting.  Half-wit, half-governor and half-bus tour.  Of course she quit.  The important thing is it is a lesson the “lamestream media” should learn from, if she doesn’t give you an itinerary, and you stop following the bus, she just simply will go get lost.  She gave it up as she does all things, a message from God perhaps.  Her vacation was finished and halfway through like all her so-called activities that are not giving birth.

She wasn’t getting any attention for weeks now from the people she hates, the lying media.  Still, that media, even though it took them weeks to notice she wasn’t blogging found her out.  Ironically, it was her employer that let it out first.  Imagine it.  Again, Palin does her patented attack on the media.

Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the “One Nation Tour” has been cancelled. Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, wait, that’s because it hasn’t been cancelled. (Good ol’ media… you never cease to amaze!)

As I said myself at the end of the east coast leg of the tour, the summer is long, and I’m looking forward to hitting the open road again. The coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan.

I wouldn’t think it to be such a slow news day that, what with numerous wars and serious economic woes concerning Americans, a bus is driving news stories today. The next leg of the tour continues when the time comes. In the meantime, no one should jump to conclusions – certainly not the media with their long track record of getting things wrong or just making things up.

Now, it is heartwarming that she has found her “civic duty.”  Where was it when it really counted?  Did she not have a civic duty to the people who elected her governor?  But really jury duty?  Wait a minute!!!!    It could be true, but I find it  a convenient excuse.  And what better excuse than civic responsibility?  She would give up her publicity tour for jury duty?  Please.  How better to steal media attention from the real issues that affect real people?  If she is not running for President, then what is she running for?  Or, what is she running from?

It would have been fun to see her travel to Georgia.  I would have enjoyed her retelling of history once again; how Sherman marched through Georgia, shooting guns and ringing bells telling the people of Atlanta that they would be secure in their person.   How they would be saved.  Instead, she has gone home to Alaska, about which the people of Arizona, specifically Scottsdale, are jumping for joy.

She has lost interest in her tour because she is not important to the American people.  One day she will realize that she is not going to changes lives.

Poor girl needs a vacation from her “vacation.”  Call it jury duty, call it Bristol’s book, or anything else you like.  It’s just a euphemism for salmon fishing or watching your own reality show; “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

This just in:  She is the global quitter of the world.  Sarah Palin cancels the trip to Sudan because Greta Van Susteren can’t go.  The Sudan doesn’t exist.  All is well with the world, all is back to normal.  Khartoum?  Yes, I love Khartoums.  Growing up I watched Bugs Bunny.

Palin was called home for jury duty.  Let’s hope she is convicted.


Racism Is The Reason Republicans Exist: Their Godly Mission

I do not make that statement lightly or in jest.  I make it simply because it is the truth.  It has been the truth since the Civil War, and it continues today.

There may be many that believe this is just the ravings of a lunatic Democrat, but it is not.  Just witness today’s new GOP video ad:

<iframe width=”640″ height=”390″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/bv_WG0v_kO0&#8243; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

This kind of crap has been around forever.  We fought the Civil War to set men free.  Instead, the Republicans make every effort to enslave racists white with their showtime slobbering.

In the 1948 elections, after Harry Truman had desegregated the Army, a group of Southern Democrats know as Dixiecrats split from the Democratic Party inb reaction to the inclusion of a civil rights plant in the party’s platform.  The disaffected Democrats formed the States’ Rights Democratic, or Dixiecrat Party, and nominated Governor Strom Thurmond of South Carolina for President.  Their party plan was maintaining segregation and Jim Crow in the South.  The Dixiecrats lost in 1948 and the party dissolved.  The split has endured.

It was called the “Southern Strategy”, and it still is.  Republicans strategy for winning elections in Southern states by exploiting anti-Black American racism among Southern white voters and appealing to states’ rights.  Many white Southern Democrats left the party following the Civil Rights movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.  Does the name Rand Paul come to mind?

In 1980 Republican candidate Ronald Reagan’s proclaiming support for “states’ rights” at his first Southern campaign was the beginning of the rebuilding of the Southern strategy once again.  Richard Nixon used it brilliantly.  Richard Nixon ran his campaign in 1968 on states’rights and “law and order.”  The seeds of racism and hatred planted again.

Now, the term “Southern strategy” has been used in a more general sense.  They use cultural themes in election campaigns – mostly but not exclusively in the American south.  It has now gone mainstream. In the past, politicians’ highlighting of issues such as busing or states’ rights appealed to white angst about integration.  Now, Republican politicians make appeals to “conservative values”, and use cultural issues such as gay marriage, abortion, and religion to get  their faithful foaming at the mouth.  The “Southernization” of American politics.

The new version is the Tea Party as we should all know.  Their preaching of state’s rights and the Constitution is nauseating.  If they would just stop wanting to be status obsessed losers.  Or sucking up to them as they are doing now with this new video.

They call them viral videos because they spread like a virus no one has ever seen.  They are stupid, ignorant internet videos that announce themselves as “viral” spreading their sickness globally.  It is just online attention only.  Kissing their on assess.  Does the “Demon Sheep” ad come to mind?  The new KKK.  Their intention is to dehumanize everyone.  If you don’t belong to club you are worthless.  Just look what these states’rights are trying to do to women, children, teachers, blacks, veterans and the middle class.

A racist will always deny being a racist.  Republicans do it best.  God and guns is their motto.  Racism is their religion.

Ann Coulter in her column today wrote the following.

In my book “Demonic: How The Liberal Mob is Endangering American”, I make the case that liberals, and never Conservatives, appeal to irrational mobs to attain power.  There is, now I recall, one group of people who look like conservatives, but also appeal to the mob.  They’re called “libertarians.”

She really meant “REPUBLICANS.”  She actually spoke truth and didn’t know it.  But then, she wouldn’t since she has never, ever done so.  After all, she, like all Republicans, have God, guns and hatred on their side.


House of Whores

I am convinced that my dog is a Republican.  He sits comfortably at home all day while everyone else is at work.  Then he demands to be fed everyday for doing nothing, without doing any tricks whatsoever.

Republicans went into politics instead of doing something worthwhile and useful for their country.  Their political careers are based on the most half-hearted lies:  I’ll create jobs; I’ll balance the budget; I won’t raise taxes; I’ll make government small; I’ll save America.  Naturally, these politicians don’t ever tell the truth. They are ignorant of everything as they are of government.  They know nothing of history, as exampled by two of our great historians, Troll Sarah Palin and Backward Michele Bachmann. They love the Second Amendment.  They love the Tenth Amendment, which states that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  This means that power to drive the country nuts over a bag of Tea that is ever-growing weak, and on the other hand, to have the power to say rape isn’t rape, women have no rights other than those given to them by men, and that women, children, the poor aren’t people is as the amendment states “reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

God is a Republican.  God is old,  a father figure and a great believer in rules and regulations.  He strikes terror in the hearts of believers. He holds them accountable for their actions or their lack thereof. He seemingly has no concern for the material well-being of the disadvantaged, the poor, children, veterans and women. He is politically well-connected, socially powerful, accepts large donations and contributions and holds control on literally everything in the world. Pave your way to heaven by giving and giving and you might get into God’s penthouse suite.  Republicans swear allegiance, a loyalty oath to God to accept donations and contribution regardless from where they come.  Determined to do God’s work. These Republicans have followed God straight to hell.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed [and hence clamorous to be led to safety] by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.  H. L. Mencken

What the fuck does our government do all day?  They raise money for God.  The three branches of government have been renamed by the Republicans; Money, Television and Bovine Skatalogy!!!!  They are all media stars.  Spreading the word of God.  God said rewrite history, Paul Revere rode shooting and killing while proclaiming the warmth and fidelity of the British.  We want New Hampshire to be our friends, so the Revolutionary War was ignited there.  We are all saved.  God it seems is old and dumb.  These idiots believe that they will become true Christians, like Mary Magdalene and be saved.

Oh ye of little faith!  God is endorsing numerous Republicans, whores that they are.  The list seems to grow each day, Palin, Bachmann, Pawlenty, Santorum and Cain.  All proclaim that they got the okay from God to run for President.  Well maybe not Palin.  Cain is a little strange though. Cain slayed Abel, and was sent East of Eden, which can only mean that at long last God forgave Abel for killing.  That’s right, God loves the Second Amendment.  A gun in every good Republicans hand with ammunition.  Bells will ring in Boston again with guns a blazing.  Poor Newt was not endorsed.  God told Mike Huckabee to give it up.  Remember, George W. said that God wanted him to run and that happened.

There is still hope.  It seems that my dog has finally begun to act as if his brain actually works sometime.  He pissed on my newspaper, the one with the picture of the Troll Sarah Palin.  It seems that he has given up on the Republican God.

 

 

 


17 Bigots of Murfreesboro, Tennessee Attack Religion

We’ve heard and read about the attack on the building of a mosque near Ground Zero and the hatred involved in that farce.  What the media has not reported is the attack being initiated in Tennessee against the building of a mosque.

These 17 went to court on the contention that Muslims have no constitutional freedom to worship because Islam is not a religion.  But the court ruled that Islam is a religion.  You just can’t, not by the wildest stretch of the imagination, make this crap up.  The Chancellor, Robert Corlew was compelled to verify that Islam, which has existed and survived 14 centuries, and has a billion and a half adherents, is a religion.  This attack is on people who have lived and worshiped in this community for over thirty years.  They want to build a new mosque on land they own.

These 17 racists attempted to prove that the worship center would cause them harm.  They pointed out that the Islamic Center sponsored public rallies in 2009 ande 2010 on the Public Square supporting the terrorist organization Hamas; that am ICM board member had a MySpace page with AK-47’s with calls to kill Jews and commit martyrdom for Palestine; and that a website offers teaching of Shariah law.  As reported in the Daily News Journal of Murfreesboro, in throwing out most of the plaintiff’s case, Corlew dismissed that “Kevin Fisher, an African-American Christian, would be subject to being a second-class citizen under Sharia law; Lisa Moore would be targeted for death under Sharia law because she is a Jewish female; Henry Golzynski has been harmed because he lost a son fighting in Fallujah, Iraq. by insurgents pursuing jihad as dictated by Sharia law.”  Now let’s see:  Mr. Fisher has been a second-class citizen for 100 years, or so they have been telling us forever.  They fought for the Civil Rights Act, black history month and studies and the right to vote.  Did he sue the KKK for violation of his civil rights?  Ms. Moore’s contention that she would be marked for death under Shariah law because she is Jewish is ludicrous.  Again, the KKK has had blacks and Jews and others marked for death for 100 years.  As for Mr. Golzynksi; his son volunteered to serve his country.  There is no draft and he went of his own free will.  Do we now condemn all Germans for the death of allied soldiers because they killed Christians or other people of faith.  Do we condemn all Viet Namieze because they are Buddhists?  Please.

Me, I don’t fear Muslims.  I fear extremists of every shape, color and stripe.  It is my government that I fear.  A government that has instilled carefully and methodically hate and fear in its citizens.  We have been carefully taught.  We call ourselves a God-fearing nation.  Only if it is our version of God.  All religion is flawed, because men are flawed.  All men.

These bigots will one day wake up from the nightmare, abandon their dark side and say “never again.”


Cirque de Palin

Be still my heart.  All this time I thought that Paul Revere made his ride to warn us the British were coming.  I learned that in seventh grade history class.  When they actually taught history in schools.  Now, I learn that it was actually a ride to warn the British.  He was the great defender of the Second Amendment before it was first proposed.  That’s right, the American Revolution was fought over a 5 day waiting period.   The Declaration of Independence was signed in Boston. Right?

The transcript is amazing.  Did she not know who Paul Revere was? She wrote about her tour along the Freedom Trail.  She walked in the footsteps of the Sons of Liberty, visiting historic Boston.

          Palin:  He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.

It is brilliant.  Bachman and Palin; the idiot twins.  Another bit of history we didn’t know until Palin told us was that the Statue of Liberty was there to keep immigrants away.  English must be her second language.

Lamestream Media Ambush!!!!!  She used her First Amendment right to speak truth.  The Lamestream Media is now reporting her truth.  I can’t wait for her to correct this false reporting.  Can’t you just hear her:  I will keep pivoting around the media bias, and not get distracted with vulgar personal shots. Even with limited time we can try to call out lies and set the record straight.   You go girl!!!!

It has been said that Palin is intimating that she might run to mess with Michele Bachman’s mind as much as she can.  Mindless messing with mindless.  A mind is a terrible thing to waste.  If she had one, she would know that.  It must be a shared mind.  Half a brain.  Bachman confused Massachusetts with New Hampshire, and now Palin states that Paul Revere warned the British by ringing bells.  We were going to be free.

We shouldn’t be paying any attention to her.  She an embarrassment.  But I say, let her continue to make a ludicrous spectacle of herself.  It is so much fun to watch.  Better than Sarah Palin’s Alaska.  I would give anything to see Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman in a history debate.  Comedy television at its best.  They both open their mouthes to change feet.

Just when I thought I had seen everything from this woman, willful stupidity and take your breath away ignorance, she fires through the bottom of the barrel.

Now all we can do is wait and see if Palin pulls the trigger and runs for president.  Let the games begin.  She is shooting blanks.  Like her mind.


Right-Wingers DingBats Suspicion of Patriotism

It has been quite a while since I posted.  You will have to forgive, but I have been busy trying to say my home from the flood waters in Ohio.  I guess I have John Boehner to thank for flooding Ohio.  His constant sobbing and sobbing over being an abject failure at everything has Ohio under water.  Sometime I wish that there would be just one minuet thing that he could consider a success so it would just stop raining for a day or two.  But since the middle class and poor are undeserving, we may soon need a boat.  Enough about the “God-fearing, patriotic American named John Boehner.

That brings me to today’s post about Republicans, Conservatives and Right-wingers being patriotic.  More so than we little people.  Judas Priest how they love the flag.  We all read the story of how some dirt bag blogger, names Doug Ross who “broke” the story of Obama stealing Ground Zero’s flag so that he could drape it lovingly over bin Laden’s coffin.  It made the rounds and every media outlet ran that story like it was truth.  When the truth did finally come out, that the flag was removed, as it is each night, as one is supposed to do, some of those lunatics retracted what they said and blogged.  Still, the impression remained that Democrats fail to respect the flag.  Only Republicans can.  Republicans where their flag pins because they love their country, while Democrats where it for show.

Their lunacy has spread to small town America.  Suspicion of patriotism has come to a new low.  I know suspicion is human nature, but it is not patriotic.  A story ran in my hometown newspaper about a local hotel whose flag was hanging at half staff because the flag pole was broken  This hotel got complaints accusing it of flying it at half-staff in order to honor bin Laden.  Give me a break.  Do people really think that the hotel would really do that?  What could they be thinking.  Of course, that is just it, they weren’t thinking.  Could they be thinking that this hotel was offering specials: “Parents who pay full price and show of picture of bin Laden can have their children or their pets stay free?’ Or the thought that those at an al-Qaeda sleeper cell that meets next the ice maker moved, seconded and passed a motion to lower the flag to half-staff to draw authorities to their door?  Free ice cream if you bring a Pakistani flag.

It was simple, the rope inside the hotel’s flagpole broke leaving Old Glory stranded at half-staff for several days.  Timing was bad.  Citizens of this little town demanded to know where the hotel owners were from Iraq, Iran or Pakistan.  The hotel has been in the act of performing a most patriotic duty – replacing a torn and fraying flag – when the rope broke.  The scum bag bloggers and right-wingers and the God-fearing Christian Right did their work just fine.  Turning friend against friend.  Turned people who have known each other for years into racist patriotic yahoos.  I am ashamed.

This is just another case in which people have allowed patriotic instincts to be hijacked by unreason to wrongly paint other Americans as villains. It was irrational and ignorant.  Out of respect for other Americans, we should learn to recognize when irrational suspicion takes control.  Most of all we should not allow it to dignify itself as an act of patriotism.
