GOP bloggers call for boycott of WND!
WorldNetDaily ^ | September 1, 2009 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 09/02/2009 3:38:22 AM PDT by Vincent Jappi

Surprise. It's not just the Obama administration and the left that's using intimidation tactics to malign and suppress WorldNetDaily. Now a few Republican bloggers are using the same bullying tactics in an effort to put WND out of business by calling on Americans to, and I quote, "boycott any of those organizations that will not renounce … support for WorldNetDaily."

Another attempt at censorship through a false flag operation. And more evidence that the Communists usurpers go after those they fear the most.

Why are the words, “divide and conquer” coming to mind? Especially when Obama is falling fast.

Frankly, I think WND is a bunch of G*d-d*mned idiots (with notable exceptions like Jerome Corsi). But the notion that conservatives need to boycott everyone in their movement who steps out of line is outrageous.

Boycott John Henke, the League of Ordinary Gentlemen, and ... oh, wait, no-one gives a crap about some little 3rd-rate blog no-one ever heard of. I don’t know why WND gives them the attention. Oh, well... at least boycott World.

Farah only names one “GOP blog” which has attacked WND. Big deal!

Actually, contrary to WND’s assertion, League of Ordinary Gentlemen is rejecting the notion of a boycott.

Everyone blithely ignored the occasional sensationalism of WND’s titles until they appeared as the center of the eligibility question.

There are no coincidences in politics.

At one point, way back, I liked WND and looked forard to Farah’s column. But he lost me when he said there was no difference between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

“Frankly, I think WND is a bunch of G*d-d*mned idiots (with notable exceptions like Jerome Corsi).”

I would not except Corsi from the “idiot” definition. His reporting on the Trans Texas Corridor and Interstate 69 was horrible. He twisted facts and took things out of context repeatedly.

(Not that the TTC did not deserve to die, it was a horrible concept, but it needed to die honestly, not with lurid tales implying foreign sovereignty, which were false. I-69 itself is a needed freeway.)

The whole Messican issue, with the addition of the Chinese Factor, made for guaranteed headlines. Factor in the No-Borders Bunch and the No-Sovereignty Nutters - more sensational headlines.

Note carefully that the data supported the thesis that the motives were largely greed and communism.

I think Soros should buy out Farah for billions.

Nothing like allowing Soros and the loony left to subsidize their own destruction.

I kinda like WND, sure it sometimes sounds like a National Enquirer rag but as often is in life what is common is commonly overlooked, with the MSM in the tank and Fox having to often make news reports tongue in cheek and news agencies OUTSIDE the US seem to have more credible info than domestic wire services its good to have sites like WND, Drudge Report and such around.

Otherwise WND does occasionally jump at the spinning lure too fast and does get hooked into a false reporting frenzy but then again they do have a learning curve thats improving daily.

The headlines they have now offer more credible news and opinions specifically aimed at the core of current issues such as the right now news of the “possible” swine flu emergency protocols.

I don’t mind getting wrapped up in a certain extant of “if it bleeds it leads” news story, especially if it could be my blood.

LGF’s Charles Johnson is calling for a boycott. He is as “Republican” as Olympia Snowe.

WND, use them when it helps us, ignore them when they don't. They are more accurate than a stopped watch, but not a whole lot better.

They have more than 200 articles on the eligibility issue.
Where have they been wrong?

The Birthers are the Birchers of our time, and WorldNetDaily is their pamphlet.
I guess every 1960s communist knows this but I have to ask: The Birchers were bad because…?

Don’t be distracted by discussions about the John Birch Society or senator McCarthy, or Goldwater’s candidacy.

Such comparisons are only used to avoid addressing the present issue.
It is undeniable that:

-The Gray Communist Cheat was a British subject at the time of his birth, and that would disqualify him as a “natural born citizen”.

-No credible legal authority was ever presented with official documents proving the circumstances of his birth.

Those are established facts.
What is completely abnormal is that something like that has happened, and even more abnormal is the fact that those who say it is abnormal are being called “crazy”.

I am sick and tired of these so called "conservatives" who have nothing useful or intelligent to say but just try to destroy conservatives. This clown wrote this in his article:

“In the meantime, I would encourage you to (a) email me with any substantive information you have on what other right-of-center groups advertise on, or rent email lists from, WorldNetDaily, and (b) email or call to let these groups know that Republican, conservative or libertarian groups should not support Birther/Concentration Camp conspiracy theories.”

Soros backed Media matters quickly followed up with a story that conservatives call for the shut down of WND.

How “conservative” they actually are would be worth investigating.

Note that they are confusing different themes, and seem to be much more concerned with the eligibility issue than with the concentration camp rumor.

Consider being called “crazy” by crypto-Communists as an encouragement.

“LGF’s Charles Johnson is calling for a boycott. He is as “Republican” as Olympia Snowe.”

Are you sure? I didn’t see him mentioned in the article.

Corsi was 0 for 8 on his 8 point attempted debunk of Lucas Smith's Kenya BC video. Freepers and Smith dug up refutations of Corsi’s points almost immediately. Smith posted numerous additional videos with the details.

I suspect WND was threatened by “The Matrix”, as Leo Donofrio calls it, but maybe WND’s “Where's the BC” money-raising campaign would be threatened if Smith had the real thing. WND would benefit by delaying verification of Smith's BC as long as possible if they couldn't meet his price to get if for themselves, or they could be driving down Smith's price by discrediting the document.

I did a double-take last night when a guest on Olbermann called town hall attendees “Birthers and Birchers”. Who below the age of say 65 would even know what a bircher was?

It appears that the Obots are reviving and reframing the term Bircher as a smear to use against anyone who thinks Obama just might be a Marxist.

And the big crime of the Birchers was, apparently, that they were anti-communist. Until the 1980s, it was self-evident for every leftie, young and old, that only a complete idiot would be an anti-communist. For a while, that had changed; looks like they’re trying to change it back now.

If Obama is exposed, Rinos are in as much trouble for breaking the constitution and lying to Americans as are their “friends across the aisle.” They are getting worried, I guess.

Chuck the Ponytailed California Hippie Jazz Musician Johnson has been on a tirade against real conservatives for some time now.

He has banned nearly 1000 true conservatives from his once useful blog, and instead of the anti-jihadist oriented news he used to post, his blog is now filled with diatribes against Glenn Beck, WND, “nirthers”, TeaPartiers, Texas sucessionists, etc. Look for a blog run by ex-LGF’er “Kirly”...her “Book of the Banned” is a chronicle of all those who have been “Chucked” by Johnson. He routinely bashes FR and Malkin in his comments section.

They went along with McCain during the election who did not want to upset the illegal immigrant vote by getting into citizenship issues.

Now they have to make sure it stays that way if they are to not be brought down by their “friend across the aisle” - McCain.

McCain would not allow Republicans to go after Obummer in many ways during the election because he wanted to look “moderate.”
