Will the media turn their misogynist Palin attacks on Bachmann?

Dennis Miller made an excellent point tonight on O’Reilly which Bill poo-pooed because it wasn’t his idea first.  Let me say before I go on that I’m no Factor fan, I just like his guests and sometimes they’re able to get a complete thought expressed before Bill interrupts them. Frankly, Bill is annoying with his “looking out for the folks” meme all the time.

But I digress.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

The point Miller made was that if the LSM goes after Michele Bachmann in the same ruthless and cruel way they’ve gone after Sarah Palin, the media will have established an MO.  That won’t look so good for them. Do these liberal journalists want to appear to be the misogynists that they really are or would they rather stay in the closet?  Miller gave great kudos to Palin for laying the ground work for all women to come after her because she’s taken all the abuse and heat – there can’t be any left unless the leftist media want to appear in the ugliest of lights. They will look like women haters – even if the woman in question happens to be conservative.

Party affiliation won’t matter a lot to the American people if they see the media pillaging yet one more UNDESERVING female candidate.

The people that both parties will be fighting for will be the independents: the so-called moderate Americans. They are leaving the democrat party because it’s been hijacked by leftist extremists.  It’s no longer the party of their parents.  It’s now the party of Che and Mao.  And I’m pretty sure those moderate American voters don’t want to be aligned with communists.  I think as it is, it will be hard for the democrats to win them back, but it will be especially hard if they see unfair and unnecessary gender abuse from the media, sanctioned by the democrat party.

Just call me the turtle fence sitter

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the stupidest thing I’ve read all day – even though the day is only 6am where I live and there’s plenty of time for more stupid things. And it’s a sure bet that there will be equally if not superior stupid things yet to come in this 24 hour period.

Number 1, this bill will never pass due to privacy issues and because of that, it should not pass. I sure wouldn’t want anyone for a mere $100 to be able to get my birth certificate.

Secondly, this bill would not even have been contemplated if the president of the United States took 5 minutes out of his busy schedule filming YouTube videos to tell us to stop eating tater tots, to clear this up, once and for all. But if he really is an American citizen, it’s to his benefit to keep up the conspiracy theories.

Regardless of the truth about his citizenship, this is a win/win for him. He need say nothing and just let the liberal media loose on the “birthers.”

Up until now, for the most part, those who opposed Obama’s policies could not just be opposed to his policies on principle and facts but because they are racist. Now the liberal media and bloggers can include nutty, right-wing birther conspiracy theorists. But they won’t say it that nicely.

I can see all the angles to this birth certificate issue. Part of me agrees with the so-called birthers, while another part of me is cynical enough to think that Obama has just nurtured this conspiracy thing to his benefit.

So, to make my opinion clear on this topic :


The most racially divisive president ever

I’ve had a week from some unpleasant place and it’s not over yet but I’m finally in a position (with time) to blog again. If you pray, please say one for my mother. If you don’t, just keep a kind thought for her because she is a good person and very sick right now.

 

Is it any wonder why Rasmussen polls say the white/black relations have NOT improved? Polls show a drop from 62% in 2009 to 36% now in those who believe that relations between races have improved. These are interesting statistics from Rasmussen:

Twenty-seven percent (27%) now say black-white relations are getting worse, up 10 points from July 2009, while 33% think they’re staying about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

African-Americans are much more pessimistic than whites. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of whites think black-white race relations are getting better, but just 13% of blacks agree.

Confidence in the nation’s course among African-Americans soared after Barack Obama’s election. But then several prominent Democrats, perhaps most notably former President Jimmy Carter, suggested that opposition to the president’s health care plan was motivated in part by racism. Only 12% of all voters agreed in September of last year, but among blacks, 27% felt that way and 48% were undecided.

These numbers should come as no surprise to anyone when you remember this presidents remarks about [white] “cops who acted stupidly” and other politicians who continue to claim that anyone who disagrees with this president is a racist (Jimmy Carter, for instance.) The NAACP is “monitoring” the TEA Party for any signs of racism. And the liberal media is hammering home the race issue at every turn. It’s no wonder people believe that race relations have deteriorated since this presidents election.

Remember theObama’s words? He was going to bring us all together: he was going to be the president of ALL Americans. He was the post racial president. He was, according to Evan Thomas, “above it all. Almost like God.” And yet, the perception is that we are worse off than before, in regard to race. It’s as though the last 50 or 60 years of civil rights laws and affirmative action have had no positive results.

Some one needs to send that memo to Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell and countless other successful and respected Americans of Black ancestry.


The ghost of Molly Norris

My blood is boiling. Tonight I read a farewell editorial in the Seattle newspaper to their cartoonist who has been forced into hiding.  This is a tepid and pathetic goodbye statement to a woman who lived in a nation where freedom of speech used to be sacred. Molly Norris was the cartoonist who declared a “Everyone draw Mohammad Day.”

The ghost of Molly Norris

The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab.

My question is: why have none of  her liberal media colleagues spoken out about this? No one in the media has shown an iota of outrage at the fate of one of their own. But they are quick to tell us all that Islam is a religion of peace and we have to be tolerant and accepting of their traditions and religious constraints, even at the expense of our own freedoms.

When an American citizen is forced into hiding because a fatwa has been called by some Islamic cleric on the other side of the planet and all because she exercised her once protected freedom of speech, we are now living under a de facto form of Sharia, ourselves. It’s time we admitted this.

“We understand the absolute seriousness of a threat from an Al Qaeda inspired magazine and are attempting to do everything in our power to assist the individuals on that list to effectively protect themselves and change their behavior to make themselves less of a target,” David Gomez, the FBI’s assistant special agent in charge of counter-terrorism in Seattle, told the News.

We have to change our behavior to make ourselves “less of a target.” Is this not acquiescing to Sharia? If it’s not then I’m a Chinese astronaut.

Who among us is brave enough to put a crucifix in a jar of urine and apply for a federal grant to do so? In America and all Western nations, it takes no bravery to do this. Christians are the butt of every joke and the target of every obscenity because Christians don’t fight back. Christians are non-violent and those who act in the name of God in violent ways, are not Christians; they are criminals and they face justice in our courts. But Islamists are and must be violent because the Koran tells them to behave so. And if we call them out for what they are and for what they are doing, we are intolerant and Islamophobes. Even while they are smothering our God-given freedoms, we must sit by and hold our tongues.

Or worse yet, we are forced to change our identities, leave our families and “go ghost.” Who wants to end up like Theo Van Gogh or Daniel Pearl?

We’re hoping the religious bigots go into full and immediate remission, and we wish her the best.

I guess Molly can take solace in knowing that her colleagues “wish her the best” because that’s the best she is going to get from her liberal media friends and from the government that is supposed to protect our freedoms.

From me, and I hope somehow Molly knows,  I send outrage and prayers for an existence that has to be like a form of evil purgatory.


Great column from the WSJ and some little known TEA party facts

William McGurn

. . . [M]oralizing about the ugly motives of the American people has become common. Whether it’s a federal judge declaring there exists no rational opposition to same-sex marriage, a mayor railing against those who would like a mosque moved a few blocks from Ground Zero, a Speaker of the House effectively likening the majority of her countrymen who did not want her health-care bill to Nazis, or a State Department official who brings up the Arizona law on immigration in a human-rights discussion with a Chinese delegation, the chorus is the same: You can’t trust ordinary Americans.

We’ve been called Nazis, racists, evil mongers and haters. We’ve been compared to the klan. Our attorney general has called us “a nation of cowards.” We are labeled homophobes and xenophobes. We’ve been accused of not only inciting violence but wanting it, as well.

And none of these epithets or accusations have anything to do with what ordinary Americans are really concerned about. We want to return to constitutional government, less taxes, smaller government, more fiscal and moral responsibility. So, again, what do any of these issues have to do with homosexuals or with race?

Absolutely nothing but the narrative has been written for us by the Obama loving liberal media and it’s a real uphill climb to overcome it.

Does it matter that there have been no arrests of any TEA party members at any of their events? Or that no one has been able to come forward and claim a $100,000 reward with proof that anyone called a black politician the N-word? Of course it doesn’t matter because those little facts don’t fit the liberal narrative.

March 2010 TEA party in Searchlight, NV

It’s a little known fact but over 70% of TEA party members have some college or are college graduates. You won’t read that in the liberal media because they prefer to paint us as stupid white rednecks who “cling to our God and our guns.” An educated grassroots movement doesn’t fit in the tapestry that the MSM is weaving about us.

The TEA party is composed of 75-80% white Americans. The general population of white America is 75%. The total population of Black and Hispanic Americans is 27%. There are 24% of TEA party members who are minorities.  How far off, really is the demographics of the TEA party from the general population of America? (24% is a surprisingly high number when you consider that we have been labeled as racists from the get go.) But do we see these numbers anywhere in the media? All I had to do was a google search to find them.

The media will not report these numbers. They will continue to spread the narrative of older white male, gun-toting, angry TEA party members and that is what a great many Americans are still believing about us. It’s going to be a real climb for us to prove them wrong but we have to persevere, hold fast to our ideals and agenda and come November, make them eat their words.
