If you love your freedom, assail a hack (heckler at Palin rally was a plant)

Bless your heart, sir, my son is over in Eye-Rack, fighting for your right to protest. -- Sarah Palin, to a purported heckler at a rally yesterday.

There's something doubly evil about a self-avowed Christian who prefaces almost every uncharitable remark she makes with a disingenuous "Bless your heart!" In any case, I say this without even the slightest amount of support or emboldening from the US military-- **** you and your jingoistic blather, Palin. How's that for freedom?

I've dealt with the intellectually bereft assertion that there is a direct relation between domestic freedom and this country's militant imperialism many times so please consider this a brief general election refresher tirade.

We were told years ago that our freedom was on the line in Vietnam. The USA then LOST the Vietnam War but we remained free. To this very day, Charlie has made no forays into my neighborhood -- unless of course you count the NIKE Store that he fills with manufactured goods in exchange for subhuman wages.

If I heart my freedom, thank a vet? Well, maybe a WWII vet but after that, you've got to be kidding me. The military/police state that is America in 2008 is overrun by people who think they have a perfect right to crack protesters in the head, restrict speech and impose ridiculous limitations upon civil liberties-- all in the name of freedom! Habeas corpus is a memory, constitutional safeguards against consolidation of power by the executive branch have been bound and gagged in Dick Cheney's inner office, the Fourth Amendment has been extraordinarily renditioned to parts unknown and the federal government is the silent partner in everyone's cell phone "friends and family" plan. For this I'm supposed to thank some poor sap, stupid enough to join a military with a draft-dodging rich boy serving as its commander in chief? Please. The war in Iraq (and allegedly on terrorism) has been used to curtail my freedoms. Loose lips sink bull**** at times of unnecessary war and we can't have that, can we?

To deal specifically with Palin's putdown of the person at the rally:

1- It's even money the 'heckler' was a plant. Has anyone spoken to him since the rally? Where is he? Gitmo?

2- Considering all the people who have been arrested over the past several years for protesting (or wearing tee-shirts or not being card-carrying Republicans or whatever) at mainstream American political gatherings (both R & D), Palin is relying upon American ignorance with her talk of "fighting for freedom." She has no use for protesters except when she can put them down by exploiting her own son.

3- With her outburst yesterday, Governor Palin only underscored the fact that her son is in Iraq as a potential human sacrifice to her political ambition. Like her daughter she is forcing into marriage, he has been shoved by his stupid family into an arrangement that may well destroy his life because it is what is best for his mother's cynical aspirations. (At least Biden's son is also promoting his own political ambitions.) Young Palin is also serving as a Hessian in the cause of corporate imperialism. Sadly, that pretty much sums up what this poor dupe is doing in Iraq. To repeat, he doesn't have a goddamned thing to do with my freedom to call Palin on her bumper sticker jingoism. His presence in Iraq doesn't make it safe for me to speak out against reactionary slime like his mother. The First Amendment to the Constitution is what guarantees my right to accurately label political bottom-feeders like Sarah Palin.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel and Palin opens with it. Then the freeze-dried fascist sinks even lower by terrorist-baiting her political opponents. She is the worst America has to offer.

So if you love your freedom, thank a protester for confronting penny-ante political thugs like Sarah Palin.

Great, another hit-piece on Palin. We know the left hates her and twists everything. It’s not about reason. It’s about hate from the left for everything that’s reasonably normal.

A local libtard who stopped by the rally on the way to the grocery store for more Twinkees.

Hmmm...political thug Palin?

Uh, and Ayers, Wright, etc., are just....a party of bridge players?

Yes, typical projection -- accuse the other side of the tactics you actually use.

Now, is it Palin calling for the prosecution of "half-truths" in political ads in Missouri? Didn't think so.

Plus, the foul language will always win you friends and influence. Add in the ad hominem attacks on Palin's accent...

Typical.

This is fun on so many levels. Let's interview THIS heckler, then interview Barry's heckler last week, Larry Sinclair. Has anyone spoken to Larry since then? Where is Larry? Extradited to Delaware......for the second time?!?!?!

Sorry, I missed the “F-you.” If the poor useless hippie can write at all anymore, he can’t do it without obscenity. He did a lot of drugs in the 60’s and 70’s, then got clean for a while and wrote for SNL, before they told him he was too angry to be funny. Then he wrote for Dennis Miller, until Miller saw the light turned Republican, and saw that his services weren’t needed anymore. Now the only thing he has left is his bitterness.

Hey Barry, since you’re so attention starved that you will undoubtedly find and read this thread at some point, I wonder if you might answer a question for me: We know that Miller went right and is doing more than fine. Have you ever met anyone who switched to liberal and did better in any way shape or form? Your political affiliation is about victimhood and nothing else. That’s why you’re always in such a bad mood jackass.

EVERYBODY gets their own thread on VanityRepublic!

This one was actually an amusing look into the “mind” of a libtard; it had a focus, a point and a view.

Most Vanities are scatterbrained idiocy without any relevant information about WHO WHAT WHEN WHERE WHY or links or anything. Much along the lines of....

“OMG its happening right now” Title
“I just saw it on Fox, I can't believe he said it” Body

Compared to that type of cr*p this was actually pretty good.

Unfortunately, a lot of people DO believe inane ramblings such as his, and will be wandering into many a polling place in November. Remember, Liberalism is a mental disorder, and many of ‘em seem to have Tourette’s Syndrome as one of the symptoms. It’s tough to clean out those potty mouths, but it’s EASY to VOTE!!!

Could well be, but if he was a plant, the press would have been all over him by now. There were about 6 others there and they were escorted out. I suspect the guy who yelled out “Kill him” at a previous event was also a plant but not one of the Republican’s. I refuse to get excited over guys like this one, its over for him, the days of peace, love, and flower power ended over 35 years ago.

See post 33 for clarification. Sorry I missed the profanity. Barry has been a syndicated writer on occasion. I posted this because it is important to document that there are people like him out there. He has appeared on most of the news networks, and like Bill Ayres, he is generally able to make himself seem outwardly rational.
