Remember when I said Chris Christie would be a Democrat in five years?

Well, here is another sign of his “evolution” that Chris Wysocki noted

Who’s side is Chris Christie on? Because the Democrats will surely turn his tirade against John Boehner and the GOP into must-see-TV in the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections.

Gov. Chris Christie ripped into House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) today for delaying a vote on billions in federal aid for recovery from Hurricane Sandy.

“There’s only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: The House majority and their speaker, John Boehner,” said Christie at a press conference this afternoon.

Christie, who gave the keynote address at the Republican National Convention last summer, said Congress traditionally puts politics aside for disaster relief but that House Republican leadership had put politics “before our oaths to serve our citizens.”

“For me it was disappointing and disgusting to watch,” said Christie, who praised New Jersey’s own House delegation. “Last night the House of Representatives failed that most basic test of public service and they did so with callous indifference to the suffering of the people of my state.”

Wow.

Hmmmm, Charlie Crist, Chris Christie, similar names……, similar political paths? Maybe we should just automatically distrust any Republican with the name Crist, or Christie, or anything similar no? Remember Christine Todd Whitman?

Understanding how the Left defines bigotry

 

I as a Conservative define bigotry as someone hating another person because of their gender, or race, or religion, or sexual orientation. To me, your opinion of someone should be based upon their actions, behaviors. To me that seems like a pretty succinct definition to me. The Left has a definition of bigotry too. They have a definition that is pretty easy to understand too. The Left defines bigotry as someone who is a Conservative. This hit me while watching this speech by Cory Booker. In the speech he utters this line

At a Tuesday afternoon Planned Parenthood rally outside the NASCAR Hall of Fame, near the Democratic National Convention, Newark, N.J. Democratic Mayor Cory Booker rallied the Obama faithful with a forceful speech about Republican extremism.

Promising to get “controversial,” Booker spoke about watching the Republican National Convention (RNC) last week in horror.

“Then I heard something that is one of the reflections and echo of some of the most insulting things we have been hearing for a long time,” Booker said of the RNC in Tampa. “I heard people stand up and say ‘I love women.’ I heard people stand up: ‘I’ve got a sister,’ ‘I’ve got a mother.’ That’s like saying you’re not a bigot because you have a black friend.”

See, that? It does not matter to the Left that you Actually embrace and befriend and love people of other races, or other religions. What matters is only your ideology. And that means this if you disagree with the Left’s ideals you are automatically a bigot. Oppose abortion? Sexist! Oppose the government (taxpayers) paying for birth control? SEXIST! Oppose anything Obama has done as president? RAAAAACIST! Even if you campaigned and voted for Obama in 2008 you are still a bigot if you do not support him now. RAAAAACIST! And do not dare think being Black, or a woman, or a Homosexual protects you from the Left’s wrath either. The Left has a page in their Book of Bigotry for you too!

Some of the most despicable personal attacks from the Left are reserved for minorities who do not know their place. Women are not allowed to be pro-life, or to oppose government-funded birth control. Blacks are not allowed to oppose Obama. If they do they are accused of being an “Oreo” or “Uncle Tom” or of “not really being Black. Hispanic? Better not speak out for securing our border. Remember the Left is watching you. If you are a minority the left will TELL you what to think, and say, or else!

So, in the end why IS bigotry so ugly to me, and to most Americans? Because it presupposes things about people based on superficial things like their skin color, or their gender. A bigot looks at a Gay person and say you are gay, so you must be. fill in the blank. They look at a woman and say you are a woman so, that means you think this way. They look at Blacks and say, you must act, and behave in this manner. Wow! That sure sounds a whole lot like the Left doesn’t it? Maybe if the Left wants a real dose of baseless hatred and bigotry, they ought to stand in front of a mirror.

Clint Eastwood To Speak At Republican National Convention On Thursday: Fox News

Clint Eastwood To Speak At Republican National Convention On Thursday: Fox News – Deadline Hollywood

Clint Eastwood will be speaking at the Republican Convention in Tampa on Thursday according to Fox News.

The network’s website is reporting that a GOP source confirmed “that Eastwood is indeed the mystery speaker”.

Thursday night’s line-up has a “To Be Announced” speaker scheduled ahead of Senator Marco Rubio and GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney himself.

Eastwood’s name was floated earlier this week as the speaker along with former VP nominee Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and even a hologram of former President Ronald Reagan.

No stranger to politics, Eastwood served as the Mayor of Carmel, California from 1986 to 1988. He supported John McCain in 2008 and endorsed Mitt Romney earlier this month at a Sun Valley fundraiser.

“Now more than ever do we need Mitt Romney, I’m going to be voting for him,” the Oscar winner said as the GOP nominee stood next to him on August 4.

If Eastwood is really heading to Tampa to speak Thursday evening, he’s going to have to get going soon.

Deadline has learned that as of Wednesday afternoon, the actor/director was still at his home in Carmel.

Eastwood’s latest film, Trouble With The Curve comes out on September 21, 2012.

FINALLY! Newt debates his retarded little brother

His little brother, AKA Chris Matthews, and Chris’ Obamagasming Legs!

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday from the Republican National Convention, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took on host Chris Matthews, who accused the Republican Party of playing the “race card” throughout the day on MSNBC.

Gingrich turned the tables on Matthews, asking: “Why do you assume ‘food stamp’ refers to black? What kind of racist thinking do you have? Why are you being a racist, because you assume he’s referring to black?”

In a testy exchange, Matthews asked Gingrich why his party was using what he deemed coded racist dog whistles.

“I find your assumption so absurd that it’s hard to answer your question,” Gingrich responded. “Let me take the birther thing for a second — what Mitt Romney did the other day, people say, ‘You ought to relax, you ought to be a little bit lighter’. So he tells a joke. Now, it tends to be a joke that serves him in a totally different way that you’re calculating. It reminds everybody in Michigan that he was born in Michigan.”

But Matthews wouldn’t back down from his premise.

“You know, it’s amazing how — you know how African-Americans generally, at least people who have emailed me in the last couple of hours, how they react to this?” Matthews said. “Do you understand they have a reaction? They think this is racial talk. That this whole thing about welfare cheats is relentless stuff.”

An intellectual beating of epic proportions

Leftists can be a great source of laughter

English: Eve Ensler

 Eve Ensler (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

These Leftist groups do the craziest things sometimes. Take Code Pink for example. They are a far-far-far-far-Left bunch of Feminuts who are obsessed with their own private parts

Eve Ensler famously said: “My vagina’s furious and it needs to talk.” Our vaginas need to talk, too. They need to talk about the way women’s rights are threatened worldwide–from anti-choice legislation to inappropriate rape jokes to economic inequality to war and occupation overseas that disproportionately affect women’s lives.

Join CODEPINK and V-Day to bring your vagina to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL August 27-30!

Together, we will bring our resilient, creative, powerful vaginas to Republican fundraisers and to the convention hall. We’ll also take part in the Coalition March on the RNC and other peace and justice actions. 

Excuse me but don’t Feminists go nuts every time men think about women as “sex objests” Don’t they traditionally say women should be judged not on looks but their brains? So why do most Feminuts today obsess over their vaginas? It is like they are having a contest amongst themselves to see who can use the word the most, and in the most demeaning, sexist way possible. The truth is that Code Pink members are angry and bitter, and on the wrong side on every issue. And, to be really honest, I mean brutally honest, I think I know what REALLY makes these women, oh sorry, womyn angry is that while most men, not counting Barney Frank, or Andrew Sullivan of course, think about sex every few seconds, they try NEVER to think about sex where Code Pink is concerned. 

Marching in 2004.

Code Pink, the only thing that can stop men from thinking about sex

Will there be violence in Tampa during the Republican Convention?

 

Bob Belvedere points us to a piece by Mandy Nagy that might open your eyes.

On Tuesday, Tampa police said they confiscated “pipes, bricks and other suspicious items from the rooftop of a downtown building located about a mile from where next week’s Republican National Convention will be held.”  The police chief also indicated that they have studied other protests in preparation for this month’s convention.

Police have been preparing for the event for nearly two years. Castor said she’s studied other protests surrounding political events, most notably the RNC in St. Paul in 2008, where authorities were taken by surprise by an active minority of demonstrators who smashed cars, punctured tires and threw bottles in a confrontation with pepper-spray-wielding police. Hundreds were arrested over a few days, including dozens of journalists.

Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy told the Tampa Tribune in June that “officers have developed a security plan and even attended the NATO conference in Chicago in May to observe how violent protests were handled.”

In 2010, after it was first announced that Tampa would be the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, AnarchistNews.org published the following letter from the Tampa Bay Action Group:

In August of 2012, the Republican National Convention will be held in the sunny, humid, sub-tropical belly of the beast of Tampa Bay, Florida.

The Tampa Bay Action Group (TBAG), a decentralized collective of anarchists strewn throughout the urban and swampy reaches of Florida, is committed to making 2012 and the RNC in Tampa a truly catastrophic celebration of liberty and joy. The theater of capitalist disaster will rear its head in the divided apartheid communities of Tampa, where wealth touts itself as master of the land, as the Mayan calender [sic] comes to the end of a cycle. While TBAG does not adhere to prophesy, the hint of collapse (and renewal) is a promising dream.

We do not take sides with Dems or Reps. Nevertheless, the Republicans and their racist wannabe Tea Party stooges happen to be the imperialists-dejour [sic] entering our waters. We intend to demonstrate what a real tea party looks like: the direct and deliberate destruction of the commodities of our oppressors and the celebration of the armed spirit.

With Love and Lust for Life,

The Tampa Bay Action Group

PS, we are not a coordinating committee. That group has yet to present itself.

Lots more at the link. I have no doubt that much of this is empty talk and threats. But I also have little doubt IF the opportunity presents itself, there are some miscreants who would wreak havoc, and or commit violent acts. This will be the nastiest election ever, and the Republican Convention will be  a target no doubt. Be careful if you are attending, and if you live in the area, and are a Republican, take caution.

 

Meet the man the Left hates most

At least that is what Stacy McCain thinks Brandon Darby may well be. Stacy posts an interview with Darby, and offers some background on the man

(If Brandon Darby isn’t No. 1 on the radical Left’s hate list, it’s only because they hate so many people they can’t keep track anymore. In 2008, Darby worked undercover with the FBI to foil a planned domestic terrorist attack on the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. Since then, Darby has become a columnist for Breitbart.com, whose courage was praised by the late Andrew Breitbart, and who spoke movingly of his friendship with Andrew at a March memorial service. In recent weeks, Darby has been paying close attention to the story surrounding Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser and the harassment of conservatives. He agreed to the following e-mail interview about the story. — RSM)

Undercover work for the FBI is very serious stuff, the ind of stuff that puts your life at risk. Kudos to Darby for having the guts for that. So what does a man like Darby think about the Brett Kimberlin mess?

1. How long have you been following the Brett Kimberlin story, and how did you become interested in it?

The Kimberlin/Rauhuaser issue isn’t unique to Kimberlin and Rauhuaser. The details and specifics are, but the gist of it is prevalent in the American Left. The gist is that the people we call “far Left crazies” are actually very well organized and calculated and they operate on behalf of, with the support of, and to the benefit of more mainstream and moderate left-of-center political players.
My interest in this particular issue came up because I began to realize that they acted like bullies. They exhibited a tendency to go after people who were quite innocent of anything other than simply voicing their political concerns and addressing what seemed to be a criminal enterprise operating with mainstream Democratic Party funding and interests.
People I cared for like Mandy Nagy have been being harassed by this network for a long time. My only regret is that I didn’t start taking arrows for my friends on this sooner.

I will give you one last taste, but go read the entire interview

4. A lot of people are focused on the SWATting aspect of this story: First, Mike Stack, then Patterico, then Erick Erickson, and now Aaron Walker. How much do we definitely know about who is behind these dangerous hoaxes and why they’re happening?

It seems to me that the issue is simply this: There exists a group or loosely affiliated entity that receives funding through a front group nonprofit from mainstream left-of-center interests. That group defends the mainstream interests by engaging in campaigns of deception and destruction. They utilize blackhat Anonymous hackers, fake personas, lawfare, and engage in deep intel operations and attention shifting against their funders foes. Some in the Right blogosphere began to catch on, and consequently they were SWATed. Others began to catch on, and they were SWATed. Then the story received more attention than the dirty tricks entity wanted to receive.

Understand this, when the Left says by any means necessary, they mean it. Their ideology is their religion, and anyone who dares oppose that religion is targeted for Leftist Jihad.
