A shocking YouTube video (uploaded by someone not friendly to the Tea Party) shows Memphis talk radio host Thaddeus Matthews insulting and humiliating Republican congressional candidate Charlotte Bergmann on air.
Pardon our cynicism, but we were mindly curious if the people who attended MoveOn.org's national "We Are One", "Respect Our Rights", "Keep the Dream Alive" rally in Washington, D.C. on April 4, 2011 really knew what they were protesting about?
Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary scheduled a rally in front of the White House to promote Shariah law in America. The rally was postponed but the planned counter protest was held.
Code Pink's Medea Benjamin and Center for American Progress' Van Jones dropped by the MoveOn.org Union Solidarity Protest at DuPont Circle, Washington, D.C., February 26, 2011.
For over a year, the liberal media recited "the Tea Party is racist". They did so for hours on end without any clear proof. What do I mean by proof? Knowing this bunch as we do, had there been video of one clearly racist sign at a Tea Party, we'd be seeing that video as often as we did that of Rodney King. It would be their smoking gun. They could single-handedly discredit the Tea Party and possibly have salvaged the midterm elections for the left.
Was Vicki Lawrence funny or being mean making fun of the homeless, and will diagnosing Down Syndrome lead to designer babies? Liberal celebrities need to lighten up. If they can ridicule us, Ricky Gervais can have his way with them.
The Girls ponder over the creepy hand model, why people go ballistic over Bieber, and if it's appropriate to whup your kid's butt on Facebook.
It's sad enough the New York Times' editors believe it "a theatrical production of unusual pomposity" that the incoming Republican Congress require "that every bill cite its basis in the Constitution." It may be only me, but I'd be willing to bet those same Times editors would be running down the hallways, arms a-flailin' and citing a pure constructionist position on the First Amendment, if the new Congress required government oversight as to the content of their sorry excuse for a newspaper.
But of course, the New York Times didn't stop there. Showing the originality of a rap artist skimming through the Rhino music catalog, in search of a 70's hit of which to lift an eight-bar hook, the New York Times reached into the liberal playbook and rather clumsily interjected the race card into the discussion.
In any case, it is a presumptuous and self-righteous act, suggesting that they alone understand the true meaning of a text that the founders wisely left open to generations of reinterpretation. Certainly the Republican leadership is not trying to suggest that African-Americans still be counted as three-fifths of a person.
Just because Republicans want to make sure any legislation they pass meets Constitutional muster doesn't mean they believe blacks be counted as three-fifths of a person, but maybe by using this example as part of their rebuttal the New York Times believes three-fifths of their readership are functionally ignorant of history.
Or maybe three-fifths of the New York Times editors are as well?
A very sad story involving a Colorado state senator whose automobile crossed into the oncoming lane, collided head-on with another car, killing a pregnant woman and leaving her C-sectioned infant in critical condition. Two of the senator's sons are hospitalized as they were ejected from her small SUV (the senator pushed for laws requiring police to pull over those suspected of not wearing seatbelts). The Associated Press reported on the story. Anyone want to guess what little bit of insignificant information they left out...?
The Texas Department of Public Safety says state Sen. Suzanne Williams has been released from the hospital after Sunday night's collision.
Trooper Gabriel Medrano says 30-year-old Brianna Michelle Gomez died in the crash, and her baby boy is in critical condition after being delivered via cesarean section.
While we can only speculate, experience tells us if Williams were a conservative, that may have been included in the headline. While the AP was being "responsible" as her party affiliation had nothing to do with the story, local coverage was much more revealing.
The Girls ask why the Jets are trippin', discuss John Boehner's "emotional" issues, and the snowman hit-and-run.
The Girls discuss the media fascination of what Sarah Palin reads, Katy Perry's newest Firework, and a little kid who had too much fun during a Meredith Vieira interview.
The Girls discuss two of the rescued Chilean Miners: Edison Pena who was was met topside with applause, and Yonni Barrios who didn't know who'd be waiting.
As the ice has been broken in Israel on their version of "Dancing with the Stars", The Girls discuss whether same-sex dancing is appropriate family viewing and will Hollywood cross the line (again)?
The following incident happened Friday. I guess I missed the media coverage of this...
Video after page break. LANGUAGE WARNING!
It’s been more than six months since the left accused Tea Party protesters of calling members of the Congressional Black Caucus “racial epithets” while they were walking to the Capitol to cast their historic votes for health care reform.
Despite the fact no video or audio (until now) has surfaced, showing any Tea Party protester in the act of racially slurring elected officials, and despite the fact that Andrew Breitbart has offered $100,000 to anyone who could provide that proof, liberals continue to perpetuate the false accusation and the media has never retracted and/or apologized for their slanderous accusations.
Some of us have never forgotten…
