[I]t’s odd that they [atheists] will condemn politicians like Bachmann for bringing God into a political discussion, yet they throw their support behind leaders like President Barack Obama, a Christian who says that he is opposed to gay marriage because “God is in the mix”. (A weak attempt at making his Christianity sound cool).
Hmm, Michele Bachmann is crazy for thinking that there is a God who backs her political agenda but President Obama is just fine even though he’s against letting consenting adults who love each other marry because the same God says no?
Why is it that so many atheists who feel that anyone who believes in God is delusional and should seek help support leaders like President Obama? If believing in God is a sign of mental illness, would you really want a man who is suffering from this delusion to have a nuclear arsenal at his disposal?
One reason is that, like many Republicans, they don’t really believe that Obama is a Christian. Not surprising, considering that this is the man who said that guns and God were something for bitter, small town Americans to fall back on when he said that “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” – Daniel James Hayden IV
The goal is to replace Obama next November and at this point there is not one GOP candidate who can do nearly as bad or worse than Obama has done for this nation.
There is no perfect candidate for any one of us. For me, Paul fails hugely on foreign policy; Perry’s immigration policy is hardly what I would agree with; Romney has that suitcase on his back called RomneyCare; Bachmann is just a little too strident. But I’ll take any one of them over Obama, any day. And I’m betting that most Conservatives agree with me – no matter what differences we might have with these candidates, they are head and shoulders better than the man in the Oval right now.
Right now, the democrats (now known as Marxists) are targeting the Tea party and from polling results, it appears it’s working for them. Fewer people are viewing the Tea party in favorable terms. Fewer people agree with the Tea party message. This is old news to most of you. But the fact is that the message is being stolen and perverted by the Marxists (once known as democrats) and we need to get that back. The Tea party are the freedom fighters for all and we have to make that message known. Concentrating on the differences between candidates and not on the president and his Marxist party is to our peril.
I want to see the GOP candidates stop beating each other up and start showing us what they will do differently than Obama. They need to stop sniping at each other and focus on Obama’s failed administration. We’ve got to be unified against the creeping socialism that is overtaking us or we will be doomed after November ’12.
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.
If you’re Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann or any other conservative woman, you’re fair game for filthy name calling from the likes of Bill Maher and other misogynistic liberal, Marxists in this nation. I’m sure the video will be posted online someplace before this day is through.
And once again, NOW has clammed up; the useless organization that stands for no one and nothing.
This is a must read. I pulled some interesting parts out but the report from the Southern Poverty Law Center is quite inflammatory.
Morris Dees, the founder of the SPLC was once a hero of mine. He brought down the Klan with a very innovative strategy of filing civil law suits against them and bankrupting their organization. Dees won a $ 7 million judgment from the Klan for the family of a lynching victim in Alabama and brought down Tom Metzger’s White Aryan Resistance the same way.
What could be more heroic than that?
But now his firm is coming after patriots. Their characterizations of the movement are inaccurate and provocative. This report comes dangerously close to comparing patriots to domestic terrorist, Timothy McVeigh.
I know no one in the patriot movement who carry the beliefs that are found in this report. And to drop blame on talk radio and television commentators and Rep. Michele Bachmann is typical and unacceptable.
The video below defines the Oath Keepers organization.
“We are in the midst of one of the most significant right-wing populist rebellions in United States history,” Chip Berlet, a veteran analyst of the American radical right, wrote earlier this year. “We see around us a series of overlapping social and political movements populated by people [who are] angry, resentful, and full of anxiety. They are raging against the machinery of the federal bureaucracy and liberal government programs and policies including health care, reform of immigration and labor laws, abortion, and gay marriage.”
As the [right wing] movement has exploded, so has the reach of its ideas, aided and abetted by commentators and politicians in the ostensible mainstream. While in the 1990s, the movement got good reviews from a few lawmakers and talk-radio hosts, some of its central ideas today are being plugged by people with far larger audiences like FOX News’ Glenn Beck and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn). Beck, for instance, re-popularized a key Patriot conspiracy theory — the charge that FEMA is secretly running concentration camps — before finally “debunking” it.
Last year also experienced levels of cross-pollination between different sectors of the radical right not seen in years. Nativist activists increasingly adopted the ideas of the Patriots; racist rants against Obama and others coursed through the Patriot movement; and conspiracy theories involving the government appeared in all kinds of right-wing venues. A good example is the upcoming Second Amendment March in Washington, D.C. The website promoting the march is topped by a picture of a colonial militiaman, and key supporters include Larry Pratt, a long-time militia enthusiast with connections to white supremacists, and Richard Mack, a conspiracy-mongering former sheriff associated with the Patriot group Oath Keepers
What may be most noteworthy about the march, however, is its date — April 19. That is the date of the first shots fired at Lexington in the Revolutionary War. And it is also the anniversary of the fiery end of the government siege in Waco and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
Does Glenn truly believe there is no difference between a Tom Coburn, for example, and a Harry Reid or a Charles Schumer or a Barbara Boxer? Between a Paul Ryan or Michele Bachmann and a Nancy Pelosi or Barney Frank?
A year ago, we were told the Republican party and the conservative movement were moribund. Today they are ascendant, and it is the left and the Democratic party that are on defense — even while they are in control. That’s quite an amazing achievement. But anyone who knows the history of this country and its political movements should not be surprised. America has a long tradition of antibodies that kick in. From Carter we got Reagan. And from Ted Kennedy and Barack Obama we took back a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, with midterm elections on the horizon that Republicans and conservatives are actually excited about, not afraid of.
To say the GOP and the Democrats are no different, to say the GOP needs to hit a recovery-program-type bottom and hang its head in remorse, is to delay our own country’s recovery from the problems the Democratic left is inflicting. The stakes are too important to go through that kind of exercise, which will ultimately go nowhere anyway — because it’s already happened.
To begin with, I like Glenn Beck and I watch him as often as I can.
But Glenn is constantly haranguing his viewers about the sameness of both parties and he did it again, in a big way as the keynote speaker at CPAC. This is my beef with Beck: the democrats are nothing like republicans and if you knew me and my brother, you ‘d see how extreme the difference is. Have many politicians in the republican party forgotten their way? Yes. Did they forget their roots during the Bush administration? Yes. But the republican party will respond to the people or those politicians who don’t will be finding different work come November.
And they know it.
A third party is not the answer and if Beck is supporting that, then he will be leading many down a garden path to the dumpster. The only winners in November will be democrats. How much history do we need to repeat before we finally get it? Third parties do nothing but elect democrats.
The republican party is coming home. The American people are demanding that they return to basic principles and the original intent of the Constitution. Beck is responsible for a great deal of that. But at the same time, Beck wants to sit on the fence and say that he is an equal opportunity political offender: that he gives the republicans as hard a time as he gives the democrats by saying they are one in the same.
That is just patently false.
If he wants to give the republicans a hard time for leaving their principles at the door and allowing way too much spending during the Bush administration, I’d agree with him. It’s time that he address the real failings of the republicans and not try to cover his ass by trying to appear fair. Lumping both parties as the same evil is not fair, it’s just simply wrong.
Please read and then watch the video. It was done for an April 15th Tax Day Tea Party. Have your Kleenex handy. This is NOT what you saw on Glenn Beck’s show Tuesday. And the story line makes it even that much more fabulous!
This resulted from a Mom in Alabama asking her high school son to help with a commercial for the Tea Party she was involved in organizing. Boy, does it slam the message home. Very impressive.
Here is her note:
“I asked Justin if he could help me make a commercial for my group’s Tea Party. He sat down at the laptop for about an hour, and then brought this to me and asked, ‘is this okay, Mom?’ After I finished watching it, my stomach was in my throat.
Everyone that I have sent it to has really enjoyed it, so I wanted my friends to see it. I am so proud!”
A very powerful video…turn up the sound & sit back…!!!
When was the last time you were told how great you are? Who was the last person you heard proclaim what a great nation we live in?
Today by Glenn Beck or Mark Levin, or Rush? Maybe you heard it from Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin.
When did you hear Obama say it?
Here’s what you hear from Obama:
We have cops that act stupidly. We have doctors who would rather take off a foot or do a tonsilectomy for 50 Grand (wrong price, but what the hell) than order antibiotics. We have nurses and healthcare workers who waste money. We are no more exceptional than the Greeks or the Brits. We are arrogant and that’s why the world hates us. We are told by him to shut up and get out of the way of HIS progress. We have to bow and apologize to the world for being… I’m not sure what, but for a whole lot of bad stuff if you listen to Obama.
I posted this video by Bill Whittle, a couple days ago, but I listen to it often. It makes me feel good. It makes me feel proud. Or this one from Roger L. Simon. Oh! what we have done for the world! How many lives we have saved because of great men like Dr. Jonas Salk or Dr. DeBakey? What great things we have produced! How many people, worldwide, have our farmers fed? How many times have the Russians or any other country, rebuilt a nation after a war? How many other nations had anything close to the Marshall Plan?
It’s sad that we hear none of this from our own president.
What he wants to do is drive a knife in our hearts on 9/11. That day will be a day of honor, mourning and prayer for me. It makes no difference what he plans for his lunatic left, I will never see that day as anything else.
Are we are to forget the nearly 3000 dead? The families and loved ones left behind to suffer the heaviest loss, alone? The rescue workers who risked their lives (and lost them) to save the innocent? The firemen, policemen, emergency responders? The brave souls on flight 93 who downed a plane rather than surrender to the horrendous plans of IslamoFacists? The countless unknown citizens who dragged others to safety at the Pentagon and in the streets of Manhattan?
I say simply NO. No one, not even the messiah of the Marxists will scrub that day or those memories from my heart and mind.
