Michelle rocks, God bless her, but Juan is pathetic. Seriously, some Conservatives give him some slack because NPR fired him and he spoke out against PC a bit. But, again, he is an empty suit, and one of the biggest wastes of air time I can imagine. Anyway, I always enjoy watching Michelle devastate Williams, so here it is, via Donald Douglas
How pissed is Michelle during this exchange? And who can blame her, listening to Juan Williams babble about “politicizing” the hearings. Really? Team Obama politicizes everything, and Juan shakes his head in approval, but if anyone dares seek the truth, Williams accuses them of playing politics. Good grief how doe she look at himself in the mirror?
WE all know the left wants, badly, to disarm Americans, but getting them to admit that? Very tough, Liberals are skilled liars, they say all the right things to make us “feel better” and to gain our trust. Take the gun control debate currently being waged. How many Liberals have you heard say they want handguns banned? Few if any. Sometimes though, the Left allows their mask to slip. H/T Clash Daily
This is why our vigilance is required, the wolves are not going anywhere folks. the Left never “gave up” on gun bans, as some foolish Conservatives were saying a few years ago. The Left still hates your guns
He makes some great points. Points I think we ought to take to heart.
Now that we are descending into nanny-state soft tyranny under the sure and certain leadership of our beloved Not-A-Dictator, we are going to need a Minister of All Cultures and my nominee is John Nolte of Breitbart’s Big Hollywood. First of all, I know Nolte so even under the new regime, I should be able to score copies of movies with all the offensive scenes still intact. And second of all, I’m beginning to think that he is the last sane man discussing pop culture in America except for me. And I’m not too sure about me.
Last week, the Noltenator ran a terrific piece defending funny man Seth MacFarlane from both left-wing and right-wing attacks on his off-beat, politically incorrect and also very amusing Academy Awards performance. Especially under fire was a song called “We Saw Your Boobs,” which named which actresses had exposed themselves in which movies. Critics on left and right called the song sexist, offensive, puerile, etc, and Nolte explained to them: shut the hell up.
What strikes me as wrong-headed… is all this taking of offense and hurling of “ists.” I fear we’re becoming a nation of well-intentioned (sometimes) “Footloose” dads who see danger in harmless fun; where we cry “ist” to put a stop to things that make us uncomfortable; where — so “we don’t offend” and “for the good of others” – we build restrictions. And what happens in the process? We lose our own capacity for joy and that very healthy exercise known as laughing at ourselves.
Read the whole thing here. It’s worth it.
But while John takes both the left and the right to task, I think the right is more to blame here. When leftists attacked MacFarlane, they were being pinched, small-minded, puritanical, humorless, bullying, and censorious — which is to say, they were being themselves! Blaming them for that is like blaming a rattler for having venom.
But if right wingers want to speak through and about pop culture, they need to learn to be smarter and better than the opposition. The fact is, properly understood the “Boobs” song was a triumph for right-wing values!
Too often it seems some Conservatives try to trump the Left by adopting their tactics. Like playing the victim card. Look, we are Conservatives, we do not play the PC game very well, and we should not try. We are not by nature, whiners, nor should we try to be. No one likes anyone who is always feeling offended, or like they are part of a victim class. This is why certain “Socially Conservative” groups hack me off. It is bad enough to hear Liberals play the role of the victimized, hearing Conservatives do it is even more grating. Yes, I know, members of the American Family Association are offended by most things on TV. Fine, turn the channel if you do not like the show that offends you, don’t let your kids watch it, but stop trying to get the FCC to step in and censor what you don’t like. Believe it or not not everyone wants everything to be “family-friendly”. I like drama, and thrillers, and comedies like Two and a Half Men, and shows like Bones, CSI, NCIS, and others that might not be suited for kids. I enjoy them, and do not really care if they offend you, nor should I care. Get the Hell over it! EVERYTHING that is written, spoken, broadcast or expressed offends someone, that is just the way it is, again GET OVER IT!
As I said already, I am well past tired of everyone crying about this show, or that song, or this or that offended them. Tell you what, go find the the right never to be offended, THEN we can talk, otherwise shut up already! Honestly folks, we have a president that is trashing this country. The economy, foreign policy, spending, taxes, the right to keep and bear arms, our military, Obamacare, all matter a LOT more than you getting your panties in a wad over Seth McFarlane singing a song about boobs, or some other comedian making a joke, or some show that you think portrayed Conservatives in a bad light, or OH MY GOD, Beyonce was too sexy at the Super Bowl. Good grief!
In fact, take the Oscars, I never watch them, or any other awards show. Why? Because they offend me, too much pretense, too much giving three of four movies, or singer, or TV show every award, too much song and dance, I LOATHE musicals, ALL musicals, always have, even when I was small. I used to watch shows with my parents or grandparents where there would be singing and dancing, and I would think, why are they singing and dancing? Yet, I have never ever held a desire to prevent someone else from watching these shows. Nor have I led any boycotts to rid TV of the reality show, which are so obnoxious to me. Want to know why? Because I do not think I am entitled, that is why.
I guess what I am saying is I am tired of every Liberal out there contracting Offendeditis at every turn. I am tired of the radical Atheists who freak every Christmas. I am tired of the race pimps at the NAACP, and MSNBS making everything about race. I am tired of the gender pimps AKA Feminists going ballistic at every turn too. I am tired of seeing the Boy Scouts attacked because they dare exercise their right to freedom of association. I am tired of Gay couples thinking they can force a florist or bakery to do business with them. Find another bakery! I am tired of the incessant whining. Everyone is entitled to never be offended somehow? And, I hate to say it but I see more and more Conservatives flirting with this same attitude. Sorry, but we are better than Liberals, we really ought to act like it.
Sadly, it is not just Liberal whiners that can contract Offendeditis. SIGH!
Have you seen the Geico commercial with the pig and the girl? It’s really kind of creepy and now the insurance company is taking heat from a group of moms who say it promotes bestiality.
Angry parents are up in arms over a “repulsive” cellphone app commercial that they say promotes bestiality.
One Million Moms wants auto insurance firm Geico to pull its latest TV campaign in which a woman appears to be flirting with a pig.
The conservative Christian group that monitors children’s programming issued a statement to condemn the clip.
For the love of God people! It is just a freaking commercial, meant to be funny, stop hyper-ventilating! This is why fewer and fewer commercials during Super Bowls are any good, (this years crop stunk). Anytime anyone makes a slightly edgy, or funny spot, here come the whiners looking for some attention. Sure they scream that they are offended, but what they really mean is “LOOK AT ME”. The “Conservative” group One Million Moms, says the commercial is ‘horrible’ for families. Sorry, but groups like this might do a lot of good, but when they pull stunts like this they just makes Conservatives look like prudes! And, really they are not much better than Liberal groups who want to ban everything that offends them. Sorry, but a Statist is a Statist!
….it would be Crazy legs Matthews and the rest of the gang of ass hats at MSNBS. They are the ones constantly throwing accusations of racism around, trying to demonize Conservatives. They just can’t help it I guess. People often accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of. Read what Matthews says about Sen. Ted Cruz and tell me he is not deflecting.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Lindsey Graham, and so was John McCain, not on this program but this week. It’s about tactics. Let’s take it back. I don’t know the man’s personality. I know he’s got an interesting background, he’s a brilliant gay in many ways, but the tactics. You know, I watched him in those hearings and I saw Joe McCarthy, I saw the way he was prosecuting the case, the way he was putting up evidence, innuendo, guilt by association. If some spokesperson, some flack for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran, says he thinks we can do business with this guy more than some hawkish neo-con, is that indictment against him? But it turned into an indictment. I think it’s really being unfair and I think the Senate is going to circle the wagons and say this guy’s going in.
Maybe we should start calling him Chris “McCarthy” Matthews?
The Left focuses so much of their rhetoric around the importance of education. Have you ever wondered why? Notice that every ideology, every religion, every group thinks education is important. For some groups, it is because they want to raise future generations to be both well versed in history, science, math skills, and to be taught to think. Conservatives desire this from education. As Conservatives, we believe that open-minded thinkers will embrace our ideals of free markets, individual liberty and responsibility, and a belief in other core Conservative values. Other groups, however, are not as confident in teaching children to think for themselves.
Liberals used to tend to believe in much the same manner of education as Conservatives, but time has changed that. As Liberals have slowly morphed into Progressives, and indeed, into full-blown Leftists, their focus on the importance of education has taken on a new focus. Rather than teaching children to think critically, the Left has increasingly pushed for children to be indoctrinated to think what they are supposed to. One very good example is the current debate on gun rights, and “gun control”. For several years now, there has been a very clear campaign by the Left to turn guns into evil objects which have no good use or purpose. We have seen numerous examples of “zero-tolerance” in schools being used to not only indoctrinate children to hate and fear guns, but to punish children as young a five for violating these zero-tolerance policies.
Now, I am sure we can all agree that children ought not bring guns to schools, but bringing a gun to school is usually not the violation kids commit. Children have been suspended, or in some other way punished for the following “violent acts” Bringing a GI Joe doll to school because the doll had a tiny plastic pistol. Bringing a pink, clear water pistol to school. Using various objects, like chicken fingers, or the child’s fingers to point and say “bang”. Playing games like cops and robbers, or in a recent example, a child throwing a pretend hand grenade while playing a child’s game. Drawing a picture of a soldier, because the drawing included a rifle. Having a picture of a gun on a computer. One child was even punished because when asked if armed teachers would help prevent school shootings he said yes. Another child punished for daring to talk about a hunting trip her had gone on.
There are hundreds of such examples to draw on, but I think the point has been made. What is going on in our schools is NOT about education, or safety, it it about indoctrination. And certainly guns are not the only targets. what we are seeing is the Left using “education” not to teach, but to reprogram young minds. Of course, the Left has to use such tactics don’t they? I mean their ideals are a pack of failures. So, to trust independent minds to look at Leftism, and its history of suffering, oppression, and slaughter and have those minds actually embrace such a set of ideals is unthinkable to a Leftist. So, the Left bangs the drums of more education spending, and a desire for everyone to go to college, and, as President Obama mentioned in his latest campaign speech, or was that supposed to be the State of the Union speech, a push for a “right” to K-3, and K-4. Just imagine what Leftists can do to kids if they actually can have them from ages 3-22? Why they can push out a generation after generation of mind-numbed Liberals.
Yes, there is a culture war going on, and that war is for the minds of our kids. I would impress upon every parent the importance of home-schooling, or private schools, if that school actually teaches and is not just a smaller
indoctrination camp public school, and the importance of colleges like Hillsdale that takes no federal money. And the need for YOU as a parent to educate your kids as much as possible to counteract the Leftist mantra being pushed on them. The Left is trying to sow the seeds of America’s destruction in the minds of our children. We must fight like Hell against that evil venture.
I keep hearing certain things from some fellow Conservatives that I just cannot agree with.
No, not opposition to abortion. Abortion on demand is a grotesque violation of the most basic human right.
No, not their opposition to needless, and pointless new gun laws. The right to self-defense is also a basic human right that the left wishes to destroy, and disarming the people is the end game of the Left
Their desire to abide by our Constitution? Again no. The biggest problem in America is that we have stopped obeying the Constitution frankly
Their opposition to the runaway spending orgy this nation is on? No, the irresponsible fiscal policies, waste, fraud, and corruption is destroying our nation
Their outrage that freedom of religion is under assault by radical Atheists? Nope! They are right to push back against those miscreants, and frankly, we should push back even harder.
So what is left? Support of Israel? No, I am rock solid in supporting Israel. Any nation that attacks Israel should know that Israel will respond and that we will support Israel. Ad yes, if that means our military joins Israel in putting boots in asses then so be it!
Border security? No, the border security issue at a national security and national sovereignty issue. Without borders that are secured, we are at risk of eventually losing our national sovereignty.
No, the issue that drives me nutty at times is those Conservatives who wish to place blame for violence, criminal violence on movies, or video games. I will make my case in the simplest way possible. No normal person watches a movie, or plays a video game and then goes out and emulates the violence therein. Anyone who would is mentally ill, and could get the “idea” to commit a violent act from just about anything. We call crazy people crazy for a reason you know. Saying we should “crack down” on movies, or video games makes as much sense as cracking down on the right of law-abiding Americans to own guns, yes, Liberals, even guns that look scary.
Then there are those that seem to be too easily offended. take the Super Bowl halftime yesterday. Beyonce performed, and, while her music is not my favorite, I can appreciate her talent, what a voice, and her energy. I keep reading how “racy” her show was. Oh and did you SEE what she was wearing? So, in fairness I watched it again. And, I am sorry, but if you think that show was over the top, or slutty, or trashy, I just do not get it. I saw nothing overtly sexual, or distasteful. Maybe someone can explain to me what was so objectionable? Seriously, someone clear this up for me.
Wow, this one does surprise me. No really, I mean a foul mouthed racist, anti-war, anti-American, anti-Israel pro-Palestine wannabe thug posing as a real musician being thrown off stage at a Obama inauguration concert? I mean who better, besides maybe Obama’s former ranting racist reverend better exemplifies this administration than a douche nozzle like Lupe Fiasco?
I suppose criticizing Obama was the thing that got him the hook here. Hey come Lupe, you can bash America, Israel, war, the rich, low taxes, gun owners, the military, Conservatives, you can make crude sexual remarks about Conservative women, you can use foul language, yes, I know Lupe, you call it “artistic expression”, but you better not criticize the
Exit thought. My Grand dad was at one time a Democrat, a very Conservative Democrat. But the Democratic Party has devolved into something he would not recognize. I ask my Democratic friends What Would Grover Cleveland say?
David Frum has taken great pleasure in mocking gun owners, and the idea that Americans defend themselves with guns and even victims of Sandy Hook since the Sandy Hook atrocity. so I have a special hatred in my heart for Frum, and self-important pricks like him. Frum is a pathetic little man, clearly educated past his hat size who looks down his nose at real Conservatives. So, I am going to try and remember to mention Frum whenever I post a story about an American using a firearm to protect their lives.
A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.
The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
But the man eventually found the family.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.
“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.
Too bad she ran out of bullets. I wish Frum had to look this women, who has more balls than Frum ever will, in the eye and tell her why she is less safe with a gun.
Hmmm, tough one, there is his incredible ability to turn out bad columns on a regular basis. His willingness to bend over backwards to be the Republican the Left likes A.K.A. the Useful Idiot. Then there is his habit of bashing Conservatives that actually stand for something while Brooks stands for nothing. Smitty has a post up mocking Brooks, and there is one sentence from Brooks latest NY Times snoozer that struck a nerve.
Two things are constant, and there are three things rivaling the sunrise for invariance: death, taxes, and the codpiece-like dumbness of David Brooks:
Over the past month, the Republican Party has changed far more than I expected. First, the people at the ideological extremes of the party have begun to self-ghettoize. The Tea Party movement attracted many people who are drawn to black and white certainties and lock-step unity. People like that have a tendency to migrate from mainstream politics, which is inevitably messy and impure, to ever more marginal oases of purity.
Jim DeMint, for example, is leaving the Senate to go lead the Heritage Foundation. He is leaving the center of the action, where immigration, tax and other reforms will be crafted, for a political advocacy organization known more for ideological purity and fund-raising prowess than for creativity, curiosity or intellectual innovation.
Note that last highlighted portion. Especially the criticism of the Heritage Foundation. Brooks is mocking a group that actually HAS an ideological compass? Brooks, who has no ideological balls whatsoever? What we have is a little man with a little brain, a man who has done nothing of real note, a man who stands for whatever he thinks will ingratiate him to Liberals. And this man is mocking men and women who actually believe in fighting for their principles (which Brooks dismisses as ideological purity)? Damn that makes me angry! What bugs me most here is that it was ideological purity that gave birth to this nation. Our Founders were not like Brooks, they knew right from wrong, they knew what they stood for, and they risked their very lives to give birth to this nation. Of course, David Brooks would never take a stand, lest he not get invited to Beltway cocktail parties. Call me an ideological purist, but I resent men of honor being dismissed by walk-behinders like Brooks!
Conservatives are stunned at news that Jim DeMint, one of the truly conservative stalwarts in the Senate, has decided to resign in order to join the Heritage Foundation. DeMint will leave the Senate in January.
DeMint, 71, was elected in 2010 for a term that will last through 2016. His successor will be appointed by South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley. Haley’s choice will serve in the Senate until a special election in 2014.
DeMint’s departure is not only a blow to conservatives and Republicans. Even though he had said that this would be his last term in the Senate, DeMint had obviously signed on to serve through January 2017, and now he’ll be leaving four years early. What about that commitment to the people of South Carolina?
“Obviously we have a big rock star bench in South Carolina, and Jim’s always been about bringing new leaders in,” says a member of DeMint’s circle.
Happy for Sen. DeMint, and I pray that his replacement will be as stalwart as he has been.
You have to give it to Liberals, and my co-worker is no exception, they really do think they are so much brighter than Conservatives. When “John” asked me if I watched the debate, I detected a sense of arrogance in his voice. He said he was thrilled with Obama’s performance, and energy, and so on. He even hinted that Obama might have swayed lots of voters. I think I surprised “John” when I said I agreed with him. And that is true, I think Obama’s lies, yes they are and will remain lies no matter how many times he tells them, and his pathetic job performance will get Obama’s clock cleaned in November. “John”, of course, was miffed that anyone would support Romney over Obama. “John” then went on and on about Obama’s green jobs, and health care reform, and tax cuts for “working Americans”, and on and on.
See no matter how many times the truth is presented to “John” or any other Liberal they will delude themselves into believing what they want to think is true. “John” cared not one thing about massive increases in gas prices, because he still buys the green energy lies Obama spews. Never mind that billions and billions of tax dollars were thrown away at green energy companies that went under. Never mind that those jobs are gone. Never mind how high fuel prices, and food prices are crushing “working Americans”. Never mind that everything Obama is promising now he promised four years ago. ”John” and Liberals like him do not care about reality. They care about hearing what they want to hear. See “John” still thinks that Obamacare equals free health care for him, he still believes that everyone will be able to attend college for free too. Obama said so and that is enough for my deluded co-worker.
So, what did I think? Well I think Obama has worn out the class warfare rhetoric. Yes, we know Mr. President, we know, all you are saying is that the millionaires and billionaires should pay just a little more, good freaking grief! And please, if I hear that we need a balanced approach to reducing the deficit my head will explode. Even if I thought Obama truly believed that line, I would still only have to look at what Obama has done the last four years. He has driven our deficit to astronomical proportions. As I asked my co-worker earlier, if he hired someone to fix his roof, and if, after four years, his roof leaked far worse than ever, would he give those roofer another chance? He called that a simplistic analogy, and blamed Obama’s poor job performance on George W. Bush. Talk about simplistic.
“John” may never get it, but, I think many Americans are getting it. Barack Obama has been a miserable failure as president. He has no plans, well except to double down on the failed ideas he has already tried. He can blame Bush, blame Republicans, blame the rich, his supporters can blame racism, but in the end, Obama has one problem he cannot talk his way out of, his record.
That the woman who yelled out “Obama’s a Communist” during Hardball with Chris Matthews is a plant? Now she might not be, but, her answers and statements make her look like the walking definition of what Chris Matthews thinks of Conservatives. She just seems to be playing the role of Matthews definition of Conservative. Would MSNBS stoop that low? Would Matthews? Do you really have to ask that question? Watch the video, see for yourself, see what you think
