Boy, is this a must see! Islamization of American school kids

The video speaks for itself.

Imagine the outrage if this school had taken these children to the cathedral in Boston and the Catholic priest did anything like this. What would the liberals be screaming then? What happened to ‘separation of church and state’ in this case?

I don’t know why it’s taken over 4 months for this incident to surface.

The Pledge controversy in Massachusetts – What I always do, I wrote some letters

Story here at the Arlington Advocate site.

Dear Ms. Bodie,

If I am not mistaken, your wages and those of your teachers are paid by the federal government. That money comes from people like me. It’s people like me who your high school principal Charles Skidmore is snubbing with his outrageous refusal to pledge allegiance to the flag that represents the nation and people who pay his and your wages.

Who is the Leba Heighman that she has any say on whether teachers can recite the pledge or not? Her concern for the rights of those who would rather not recite it, needs to be revisited. Perhaps those teachers should consider their discomfort level when they cash their federal (tax paid) paychecks.

It’s because of teachers, principals and school board members like you have in Arlington that so many of us are opposed to your unions and the poor job performances that we taxpayers are forced to support.

If you’re of the mood, email Superintendent Bodie, Principal Skidmore and the local newspaper and register your complaint about this.  The school website is here.

But the joke’s on you, asshat-son-of-asshat

Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) election has been shown to be “a joke,” the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) said Thursday.

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) castigated Brown for having pushed to be sworn in ahead of schedule to permanently fill the Senate seat left vacant by the congressman’s father’s death in August.

“Brown’s whole candidacy was shown to be a joke today when he was sworn in early in order to cast his first vote as an objection to Obama’s appointment to the NLRB,” Kennedy said Thursday.

Kennedy was referencing some Democrats’ thoughts that Brown tried to bump up his swearing-in in order to give Republicans 41 votes, enough to filibuster the nomination of Craig Becker, a controversial nominee to join the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

“Seven out of ten of Brown’s voters were labor households and he stressed that he was independent and while he was originally scheduled to be sworn in next week, they moved it up to today so he could cast his first vote, the most anti-labor, the most anti-what his constituents thought they were voting for when they voted for him,” Kennedy said.

But wait, you knucklehead… this sounds just like what they got when they voted for Obama: “the most anti-what his constituents thought they were voting for…”

Brown, for his part, has denied trying to move up his nomination to block Becker’s nomination.

“This is where he shows that when they need him, he’s in the tank for the Republicans,” Kennedy said.

The stupidest statement this dumbass could make. Scott Brown RAN on the republican ticket! And when asked what kind of republican he is, his reply has always been “I’m a Scott Brown republican.” He ran as a republican but stressed his own independent philosophy. He did not run as an INDEPENDENT.

Is Kennedy inferring that the voters weren’t smart enough to know the party affiliation of the man they were marking the ballot for? Did he just inform them that — OMG — Scott Brown isn’t an Independent, after all?

This is just more Kennedy arrogance. No one knows anything until one of them inform us, especially when it’s MISinformation.

The secret to Scott Brown’s success

It was one of the prettiest morning home drives I’ve driven in months. It’s been raining here for days and this morning the clouds had broken a bit and were on the ground. When I got to the top of the summit and could see into the valley, it was a blanket of clouds. Here and there I could see little hilltops above the clouds, but the whole valley was buried under cloud. The sun hadn’t completely risen but enough to make the sky bright. It was a really breathtaking view which really has nothing to do with this blog: but I wanted to share.

And I was listening to a replay of Wednesday’s Brian & the Judge on Fox Radio. It was a post-election show and they were encouraging callers from Massachusetts to ring in with comments and opinions. While I listened to Brian describe Scott Brown walking out of the MLK breakfast, his hands in his pockets and minus an enterage of handlers, it occurred to my just why Brown walked away with the race.

Do you remember these videos?

Scott parked his truck and walked the parking lot, shaking hands with supporters and Coakley sign carriers, alike. Martha on the other hand, was driven to the front door in a black sedan and was whisked into the building without even being seen by her supporters.

How about this clip?

Scott is so sincere, it’s almost heartbreaking. True sincerity is always easy to spot. He speaks his truth and it comes from the heart. That’s hard to fake.

Coming home on this beautiful morning, I had an epiphany. Scott Brown won this election because he struck the same chord with voters that Sarah Palin has. Honesty, sincerity, humility, self-effacing humor, committment to values, genuine civility with even his opponents, class – this is the kind of person we all wish we could to send to Washington. But since we can’t, we all wanted to be part of sending Brown there.

Because of Sarah Palin, I think we will be seeing more like Scott Brown spring up this year. Nothing could be better for our country, than that.

Okay, we get it already. WE ARE RACISTS and TERRORISTS for disagreeing.

Julian Bond

by Tonia Moxley

RADFORD — In a speech Wednesday, NAACP Chairman Julian Bond called on defenders of civil rights to support the country’s first black president as he faces what is expected to be tough second year in office.

Bond’s remarks at Radford University’s fourth annual celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday came a day after the Democratic Party lost the late Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat to Republican Scott Brown, and with it, the party’s filibuster-proof majority.

The election puts Obama’s health care overhaul in jeopardy and has caused speculation that public opinion may be turning against the president.

While “black faces in high places” give reason for hope, Bond, the 70-year-old founder of the storied Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, argued that “racism is alive and well for every nonwhite American, including the president.”

Obama’s historic election has ironically caused complacency among some civil rights supporters, who see it is a sign that racism in America is dead.

But that same election has energized “the Taliban wing” of the Republican Party, Bond said, from anti-government groups such as the “birthers,” who challenge Obama’s citizenship, to “tea party” members who call for the dismantling of much of the federal government.

Bond cited a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center that found “the number of hate groups operating in the United States continued to rise in 2008 and has grown by 54 percent since 2000 — an increase fueled last year by immigration fears, a failing economy and the successful campaign of Barack Obama.”

While the recession has hurt all Americans, blacks still suffer more than their white counterparts. Today the unemployment rate for blacks stands at 15.7 percent, compared with 9.5 percent among whites, Bond said.

Infant mortality and murder rates are up in black communities across the country, Bond said. Black homeownership is declining rapidly, and with it, the wealth of the black middle class.

“This didn’t happen by accident,” Bond said.

He accused mortgage lenders of targeting black neighborhoods with high-interest subprime loans and pointed to discrimination suits recently filed by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People against some of the country’s largest banking firms. Bond has led the NAACP for 11 years.

Obama “is paying a high price today for not solving in one year the problems it took eight years to create,” Bond said. “He needs time and support.”

Bond drew parallels between the civil rights movement and Obama’s battles for reform. He called for a return to the values of the struggle against segregation: “Litigate. Organize. Mobilize. Coalition,” Bond said.

“King did not march alone.”

A novel cause for the democrats

Washington can take this advice from the Washington Post:

If there is a lesson in the Massachusetts vote, it is this: pass a bill. The nation needs reform. Democrats need an accomplishment. And Democratic activists and voters need a new cause: fixing reform, not abandoning it.

Or this advice from the voters:

If it’s about just passing a bill and showing an accomplishment, even if it’s wrong and goes contrary to what the American people want, then by all means do it. But buff up your resumes because you will be looking for jobs after November.

How many more elections do you need to watch before you hear the voice of the people? They spoke very clearly and very loudly in Massachusetts. We don’t want this health care bill. We don’t want anything crammed down our throats. We don’t believe that you know what’s best for us. And we are sure sick of how you are wrecklessly spending money you don’t even have.

If democratic activists need a new cause, how about this one: REPRESENT THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED YOU AND LISTEN TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING!

Wanna make the angry voter angrier? Keep blaming Bush.

“One thing the Democrats have done wrong? We haven’t kept the focus on this disaster on the Republicans who brought it upon us. We’ve tried too hard to do that right thing, and that’s to fix it, as opposed to spend more of our time and energy pointing the finger at who got us [here] in the first place.” Rep Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) after the president’s stump speech for “Marcia” Coakley.

Has the right hijacked “the angry voter?”

What was just so recently a message, albeit fake, of Hope ‘n Change and Yes we can, has been replaced with ridicule for what the left is now calling “the angry voter.”  The A-word and the fact that those angry voters are voting against them, is by all public appearances, totally baffling to the left. They don’t understand why there are angry voters, they don’t want to understand it and don’t try to tell them why voters are angry because as far as they are concerned, this is all a right-wing “scheme.”

Yesterday, stumping for Coakley in MA,  Obama railed about what he sees as a republican strategy.  “[The republicans are] going to let them [the democrats] make the tough choices, and let them rescue the economy, and then we’re going to tap into that anger and frustration.”

Obama calls it a republican “sleight of hand.”

Obama and a parade of Democrats who appeared on stage before a crowd a local fire official put at 1,100 at Northeastern’s modest gymnasium spent much of their time trying to explain to the audience, and to themselves, how they had lost their grip on the public “anger” a word that has replaced “hope” as the emotion Democrats are trying to channel.

“The people of Massachusetts are angry, like they should be,” said Rep. Michael Capuano, a fiery Boston-area liberal who lost in the Democratic primary while running a different, more combative campaign that many local party officials now wish Coakley had run.

“They need to focus that anger in the right direction” – at “the people who put us in this position,” Capuano said.

Obama offered his own analysis of the voters’ anger.

“There were going to be some who stood on the sidelines, who were protectors of the big banks, protectors of the big insurance companies, protectors of the big drug companies who were going to say, ‘You know what, we can take advantage of this crisis,’” he told the crowd.

Paranoid much, Mr. Obama?

(As a side note, it’s interesting that he is blaming the right for being the protectors of the “big banks” but is it not his treasury secretary who is now on the Congressional hot seat for alleged back room dealings with Goldman-Sachs? The right is protecting the big drug companies? Is it not big Pharma who have been meeting behind closed doors with TheOne?)

But taking advantage of a crisis does sound a little Alinsky, doesn’t it?

Oh!  how it pains when the enemy uses your tactics against you, even when that only happens in your imagination.

What is it ol’ Saul said? Power is what the enemy THINKS you have.

The right is not looking for a crisis to take advantage of. They aren’t that devious. But yes, they are mad as hell. And this is a crisis the left cannot harness and make their own. If they try to do that, they will only further alienate and anger the voters.

This is all a precursor to what the next 10 months will be. This is the message that the left will be trying to carry: the angry voter being hijacked by the do-nothing, status quo right.

Obama debuted the message yesterday in Massachusetts. I think we’ll be hearing it a lot more in the coming months.

Obama falls short and behind the guy in his pick-up

TheOne did no favors to Coakley yesterday when he flew in to stump for her and wow the crowd. He wowed nothing. First t hing he did was expound on the “Teddy Kennedy” legacy which right away brought to mind Scott Brown’s famous line (at 30 seconds on this clip):

“With all due respect. This is not the Kennedy seat, or the democrat’s seat. It’s the people’s seat.”

This is one of those spontaneous catch phrases that define and make a campaign. Brown’s campaign has been made.

TheOne then bragged on the prosecutorial record of Coakley. He said she was tough on criminals, putting CHILD RAPISTS behind bars. If I were on the Coakley team, I’d have been cringing about now. Her record as an AG? Read the 5 part series at BigJournalism.com by Gary Hewson to find out about her “illustrious” record as a prosecutor. About how she didn’t prosecute a cop who raped a 2 year old with a curling iron until the mother of the victim forced her to do something. Or how about her handling of pedophile  Father Geoghan’s child rape case?

Did TheOne really want to open that can of worms?

He admitted early on that he knew very little about Btown’s record but then spent most of his speech ridiculing the man who has stumped his entire state (until this weekend) in an own pick-up truck.

Brown has won this even if he never takes “the people’s seat” because he has provided much needed momentum and enthusiasm to the conservatives in this country, although he is not conservative by most standards. In a state like Massachusetts, what Scott Brown has done in the election cyle is nothing short of phenomenal.

SEIU ad: Vote for Scott Brown – union members are

Funny thing about this SEIU ad – as I was watching it I was thinking “yes, I’d vote for this guy.”  What the makers see as negatives about Scott Brown, are actually positives to me.  And then connecting him to Sarah Palin, it’s a slam dunk! If I lived in this state that I cannot spell (and admit it, you guys can’t spell it either) this ad would convince me that Brown is the person to send to Washington.

Brown should pirate this ad, take out the last reference to Martha Coakley and use it for himself. This is a freebie for Brown, as far as I can see.

He’s pro life – check.

He’s anti-global warming – check.

He voted against the democrats 96% of the time – check.

He’s endorsed by the Tea Party – check.

He’s being associated with Sarah Palin – check.

And lastly, the ad was made by SEIU – check.

It’s a home run!

Of course, we are talking about citizens of the state I can’t spell, and they aren’t known for critical thinking skills if they keep sending Barney Frank and kept sending Ted Kennedy to Capitol Hill…


This video comes from Angel Fleming and Shane Hayes blog. Union worker admits to being paid $50 by the Coakley campaign to hold her sign but further intimates that he is, in actuality, voting for Scott Brown.

Interesting report on the Brown-Coakley debate from Fleming and Hayes blog.
