It really is amazing; how narrow minded liberals are.
It really is amazing; how narrow minded liberals are.
She’s stunned, STUNNED I tell you, in this letter to the editor:
Tuesday I went to the Post Office to purchase a stamp. I was stunned when the postmistress slapped a stamp bearing an image of Charleston Heston on the envelope.
Whatever Mr. Heston might have accomplished as a movie star is tarnished forever to me and millions like me, who will forever equate him as the face of the National Rifle Association.
The name âCharleston Hestonâ does not bring to my mind his film characters like Moses or Ben Hur. By far, his most memorable moment was as he stood before an NRA convention, rifle raised high, defiantly shouting âover my cold dead body.â Shame on the United States Postal Service for honoring such an individual.
Fortunately, there are millions who are not like her.
In the twisted worldview of “progressives,” everything is racist:
The EPA chief, who was appointed by Obama in July of last year, claimed that black students are the “most vulnerable to climate change” and they should become “champion climate justice advocates.”
Turning pollution into an excuse to throw the race card, McCarthy claimed that stopping pollution is all about “equity” and that minorities have been “overburdened by pollution and environmental health hazards for far too long.”
The environmental official went on to claim that Obama was going to institute “environmental justice” for minorities.
âYou canât ensure environmental justice, and we canât deliver on this presidentâs promise of opportunity for all without giving people clean air and clean water and clean land to live on,” she said.
[ . . . ]
“Pollution is holding back millions of African-Americans fighting for middle class security,” McCarthy said. “Environmental justice is social justice.â
No word on whether pollution is also homophobic and part of the war on women.
They’re silent. Absolutely silent. Progressives; liberals, not a peep of outrage. Because Muslims:
Roughly 25 Muslim drivers dispatched to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are refusing to drive cabs adorned with advertising for the regionâs upcoming Gay Games, citing religious reasons.
Two of the three companies operating at Ohio’s largest airport were informed by the drivers â one-third of the airportâs total fleet â last week that they will no longer participate in the airportâs dedicated taxicab program. The companies, Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab, were told by the drivers that their decision was based on religious reasons, airport spokeswoman Jacqueline Mayo told FoxNews.com.
I’m gay, so I can say this: The professional-victim fags of the liberal and gay communities were outraged that newly appointed Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich — in 2008 — held the exact same position that their own, chosen one, Obama, held on gay marriage. Eich made a donation to Prop 8 in California (with his own money, without fanfare, not involving Mozilla, etc.) and he was — in 2014 — hounded out of his job.
A photographer and a baker were hounded and sued for not wanting to (for religious reasons) photograph or bake a wedding cake for gay weddings.
Somehow this is different because… These 25 Muslims are refusing to do their job because of a Gay Games advertisement on the taxi cabs. I just — as of this writing — checked Huffington Post, Salon, and Slate. Not an ‘effing peep that these Muslims should lose their jobs, or that this is outrageous and “out-of-step with current society or with” blah, blah, blah.
Fucking hypocrites. You can bet that if it were Christian or Jewish employees refusing to drive the cabs, MSNBC puppets would be frothing at the mouth and Kos Kids would be denouncing the Muslim religion as an evil beyond Satan.
In the Fox article, a spokeswoman for the Gay Games just shrugs it off.
Progressives (liberals, leftists, et al) are the biggest hypocrites on the planet.
They go together like hand in glove:
Kurtz said, “You were accused of injecting politics into halftime, and Fox News’s Greg Gutfeld said you were ‘a hypocritical buffoon’ because you’re in New York, and you’re surrounded by armed guards, and you don’t have to worry about safety.”
Costas responded, “In truth, Greg was accurate if you consider one-hundred-eighty degrees from the truth accurate. I have never had a personal bodyguard a single day in my life. There are security people at NFL games that the NFL employs, and there is always massive security at an Olympics, and there… is NBC security.”
So he’s pretty much protected from the moment he exits his car at work until later when he gets back into it to go home. But, since he’s not paying for the protection, that somehow makes him not a hypocrite, according to him.
North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday.
The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters.
According to official NAACP flyers passed out at the rally, protesters must carry the precise kind of ID that they would be expected to present at the voting booth.
This really does make the point that these protests aren’t about “disenfranchising” anyone, but rather enabling voter fraud by the Democrats.
So now a gun-control group called Moms Demand Action is trying to give Dana Loesch the âextremistâ treatment. Dana has volunteered to go into the lionâs den â appearing as the sole pro-Second Amendment voice on ABCâs The View â and these liberals evidently consider it intolerable that anyone in favor of the right to keep and bear arms should appear on a major broadcast network program.
Panic reaction at Media Matters: âThe decision to give Loesch a national platform on a highly-rated television show is troubling . . .â
More at the link. It’s amazing how the tolerant progressives are always the ones trying to silence opposing views.
Oh sure you do. She claimed she was stiffed out of a tip and the CC receipt had a note criticizing her lifestyle. It might be a hoax:
NBCNewYork.com reports that the couple, who asked to remain anonymous, contacted the station after the story went viral and produced a receipt that was apparently printed at the same time, on the same date, for the same amount, except with an $18 tip.
The couple also produced document they claimed was a Visa bill, which indicated their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55, the station reported.
Much more, with video, here at NBC NY.
Seems like there are more and more of these “hoaxes” all the time, from every possible liberal minority. People aren’t as awful and bigoted as liberals would like, so to further their agenda narrative, they invent hate crimes, or in this case, bad behavior. Sadly, this obscures real incidents.
Now, there have been hoaxes since the dawn of time (some species evolved with built-in hoaxes such as angler fish) but in the present era of professional victimhood, I date it to Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley.
Badly is the word that comes to mind. But, here’s an example; the lede from an article in The Nation:
The problems with the Affordable Care Act stem from government being too small and weak, not too big and powerful.
Do you need any other proof that lefties and progressives are mentally defective?
Like so many of the arrested adolescents of the left, he’s actually blaming Fox News for the disastrous ACA website.
Of course, he’s writing his screed in Salon, which caters to a-holes. The author, Justin Doolittle, is griping about how the sports world forces patriotism on him in the form of honoring those who serve. Here’s one of his observations:
Freedom has become one of those politically charged terms that means whatever people need it to mean. There is no coherent conception of freedom, though, in which it only exists at the pleasure of the U.S. military. Itâs simply a non sequitur. The âfreedomsâ most Americans think of when they hear the term are enshrined in constitutional and statutory law. They are in no way dependent on the size, scope or even the existence of the U.S. military. If John Lennonâs ghost assumed dictatorial control of the U.S. government tomorrow and, as his first order of business, disbanded the entire military, Americansâ âfreedomsâ would not suddenly vanish.
Yes, Mr. Doolittle, but just as we need the police to protect us from lawbreakers, so, too, we need a military to defend and protect our constitutional freedoms.
Judging by the fact that he writes like a 13-year-old, I realize that he was probably in diapers when America was attacked on September 11, 2001, but if we had no military, the Taliban would have kept on attacking us and killing citizens.
If we had no military, it is conceivable that Hitler or the Japanese might have overrun our country. Japan did attack us, Mr. Doolittle — the anniversary of which is only a few weeks away.
Not every war is justified, and there are recent conflicts that I feel we (as a country) should have stayed out of. The men and women who serve in our military don’t question their orders, which come from the President and Congress. They instead volunteer (these days) to protect us from the many threats that were, are, and could happen in the future. And, frankly, it is better to take it (war) to the enemy than to have them bring it to our soil.
He goes on, sarcastically:
The core message of the NFLâs initiative is clearly articulated by Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin in a recent promo spot. Irvin opens by explaining that, sometimes, we must set aside the petty business of breaking down football games, and take a moment to âsalute the people that inspire all of us.â (As is very common in pronouncements of appreciation for the military, âall of usâ are automatically consigned to agreement.) Furthermore, the ability to âget away from our world, and whateverâs going on in our worldâ and talk about football â âthatâs called freedom,â in the unusual mind of Michael Irvin, and âthat freedom is not free.â Whom are we to thank for this? As it turns out, itâs the troops! Indeed, they are the ones who âmake it possibleâ for Irvin and his colleagues to go on television and discuss football. Again, there is seemingly no limit to the scope of human activity that many of us sincerely believe would not be possible were it not for the militaryâs selflessness.
Poor little Doolittle. He apparently doesn’t read the news much. If he did, he might discover that there are entire nations in the Middle East that are promising the destruction of the United States; that their sole wish is to convert us infidels to Islam, where women are stoned for leaving their home without a male escort, where gays are hanged, where women can’t drive or attend school. Never happen here? I think I’d prefer the odds by having and supporting a robust military. Over the long history of the U.S., they’ve saved our asses and — yes! — our freedoms too many times to count. So, yeah, I honor and thank them.
As for little Doolittle, I guess the prospect of Sharia law goes along fine with his ‘progressive’ vision, which I’ve hidden below the fold, so to speak, because it’s not for the squeamish:
So PETA wants hunters to know that if they get up to nefarious, cruel, or just plain stupid activity, they might be observed by Air Angels.
[ . . . ]
On its Web site, PETA insists that 60 percent of the animals that are shot by hunters stagger off into the woods, where they die in pain.
How they calculated that figure is, of course, open to conjecture. However, the organization says its drones are going to be flying around in search of nasty activity such as “failing to follow an injured deer, laying bait to lure geese, or leaving bear cubs orphaned.”
Oh, and PETA wants people to buy their drones and begin following hunters themselves.
Meh. A drone from PETA? Think of it as another trap shooting opportunity.
Has-been Pearl Jam member Eddie Vedder on pro-gunners:
Vedder, . . . went on to chide the pro-gun lobby for hiding behind both the U.S. Constitution and the idea that owning a gun is “fun.”
“I get so angry that I almost wish bad things upon these people,” Vedder said. “But I don’t have to because it seems like they happen anyways. It seems like every week I’m reading about a 4-year-old either shooting their sister, their dad, their dog, their brother or themselves, because there’s fucking guns laying around. But I guess it’s ‘fun.’”
So, by that logic, cars and swimming pools can never be fun given that sometimes people die in crashes or drown in them. Also, I guess he thinks it’s more fun to be raped or murdered because the means to possibly prevent it wasn’t available.
As for ‘hiding behind the Constitution,’ no indeed! We proudly stand — visibly — behind it, alongside it, and in front of it to defend it from the likes of him.
The arrested adolescents at the Huffington Post are upset that investment companies are still intent on making money for their clients:
Amid a flurry of media attention in the wake of the Newtown massacre that killed 20 children and six adults, Cerberus Capital vowed to sell of its controlling stake in the Freedom Group, a holding company that owns some of the biggest American gun manufacturers — including Bushmaster, a maker of the AR-15, which was the Newtown murderer’s weapon of choice.
“Cerberus Capital Management has not sold a single penny of its investment in Freedom Group. This is inexcusable and these delays can no longer be tolerated,â reads a letter delivered to Cerberus on Tuesday by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), families of Newtown victims and other gun-control advocates who demand the company sell its stake in the Freedom Group in the next 30 days.
Firstly: Shame on Cerberus for issuing a statement such as indicated in the article. Their business is investing in profitable companies. They did that. Their private investors surely thank them for it.
Fortunately for the investors, they didn’t follow through with their acquiescence to the anti-gun liberals. Yet.
Result: The company — at this moment — didn’t cave to the demands of a bunch of whining liberals and are making money. Awful, isn’t it? I’m sure that the investors think so. Yeah!
Prospect for the future: Unknown. Will Cerberus give in? Or, will they rightly continue to pursue the best paths of profit they promised their shareholders?
Let’s put aside the gun thing in this story. Liberals passionately hate when someone other than themselves makes money. So, when an investment company owns shares of stock in one that manufactures a product that lots of people want but that liberals don’t like or don’t consider to be politically correct, they start making childish, unworldly demands. Now, we’ll discover what cohones Cerberus has by their future actions.
One of the morons at Daily Kos says that the economic costs of gun violence effect her, so guns should go away. From her screed:
The true economic cost of gun violence is much larger than what hospitals are spending on care. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that gun violence deaths cost the U.S. economy $37 billion and gun injuries $3.7 billion in 2005, the last year the public health agency conducted an analysis. In addition, taxpayers often end up footing the bill for social services for gun violence victims, as well as building the expensive hospital trauma units needed for their treatment.
So yes your ârights exercisingâ is affecting me and my pocket book and I am growing tired of living in a society governed by fear. Why should my tax dollars be spent on enabling your fears?
Fair enough. I say let’s get rid of street gangs and throw criminals in prison for life. That will go a long way towards solving her problem.
While we’re at it, though, any activity to which they’re not involved, that costs taxpayers money, should go away.
A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.
That’s just in one county here in the U.S. And giving them a “path to citizenship” isn’t going to change that very much.
Now, you want to know what “fear” is? Try driving home at night on Vermont’s narrow, twisty, unlit, two lane roads. You see headlights coming the other way. You pray it’s not some drunk about to drift and slam into you. So, while we’re at it, let’s try prohibition, again:
Excessive alcohol consumption cost the U.S. about $224 billion, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The costs come largely from the loss of workplace productivity (making up 72 percent of the total), while health care costs made up 11 percent, according to the CDC report. Nine percent of the cost came from criminal justice costs, while 6 percent was from drunk-driving related crashes.
Hey, this is a fun game!
A fraternity house at Dartmouth College has been suspended because they held a party with the theme of everyone coming to it dressed as either a member of the Bloods or the Crips. Apparently that angered the liberals at the pampered elite school. From WCAX TV:
“For some people, that’s their lifestyle and these people are making fun of it in a way and promoting it in a way,” said Tanner Guile, a freshman.
Around 200 students attended the party that’s receiving negative attention locally and nationally.
“I think it was ill-advised,” said Eli Stein, a grad student.
“It’s just a party,” a freshman said.
Dartmouth does not have a policy prohibiting themed parties, but said in a statement, “Incidents such as this, which violate our sense of community and mutual respect, have no place on our campus.”
So now we know that the left believes that a drug-dealing, murderous street gang deserves respect.
If only they did, Buffalo, NY would finally get some relief from ‘lake effect snow.’ Twitchy is all over it.
Mayor Bloomberg went on a spitting-mad rant against a city cab-fleet boss who won a court victory over Hizzonerâs planned âTaxi of Tomorrowâ â vowing to âdestroy your f–king industryâ when he leaves office, The Post has learned.
âI saw Bloomberg and his security there in the club, so I went over and said, âTell me what is going on with the Taxi of Tomorrow?â â Freidman, 42, said yesterday.
âHe turns to me, and said, âCome January 1st, when I am out of office, I am going to destroy your f–king industry.â
âI said, âWhoa, Mr. Mayor, calm down! Why canât I sit down with you and figure out something that works?â He got back in my face and said, âAfter January, I am going to destroy all you f–king guys,â â said Freidman, whose company operates a fleet of 925 yellow cabs.
Liberals (lefties, ‘progressives’, whatever) react like this all the time because they are mentally and emotionally arrested adolescents. That’s why they are so intolerant, violent, love to wish death on others or celebrate opponent’s deaths, and use foul language at every possible chance. And, they’re sore losers. Actually, they’re losers, period.
A startling number of teen girls have admitted to having a schoolgirl crush on bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, proclaiming their love for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on social media.
Its a disturbing trend on sites like Twitter and Facebook, where girls have admitted to finding Tsarnaev attractive, and herald him in the ranks of Justin Bieber and One Direction singer Harry Styles.
Some of the quoted tweets are the result of very diseased minds:
Tsarnaev5ever tweeted: ‘Jahar is gonna go crazy in that cell alone with just a book… I wanna send money to him… Anyone have the address?’
‘Poor Jahar… He’s only 19. ONLY 19… No one deserves to be in a 10×10… No one…’
Shadowlilly1993 posted: ‘Yall can judge me as much as you want. I’m on his side.This kid needs people behind him. I hope to meet him one day he fascinates me @J_tsar.’
A Facebook page set up in SUPPORT for the terrorist has over 8,000 followers.
As radio talk-show host pioneer Bob Grant used to say, “It’s sick, and getting sicker out there.”
A Suffolk second grader has been suspended for making gunlike noises while pointing a pencil at another student.
WAVY-TV reports the 7-year-old boy was suspended for two days for a violation of the Suffolk school system’s zero-tolerance policy on weapons. He was playing with another student in class Friday at Driver Elementary. He heeded a teacher’s order to stop.
Then the kid goes home and the only things on TV, movies, video games, are people shooting each other. He gets the blame for pretending what others pretend on all the media he’s exposed to.
In a reality check, if schools, with their “zero tolerance” policies, are going to equate finger guns with real guns and murder, or taking an aspirin as equivalent to snorting crack cocaine, then children will do the same.
