What I learned this week is that democrat thugs can break a woman’s leg in four places and break her jaw as well, and the media will ignore it and at the same time ask are tea parties violent and racist.

This sh!t needs to come to a screeching halt, RFN.

The MSM report this? They urged it on.
They urged it on before people were assaulted and eaten.

"PRESIDENT OBAMA: And this week, .... we're going to be doing is bringing some of them into the White House and --
JIM LEHRER: To crack heads?"


"To crack heads?" Lehrer asks.
"Oh, I don't know about cracking heads," Obama said, "facilitating a discussion that solves these problems." "


"PBS's Lehrer Badgers Obama from the Left: What About Banks' 'Huge Profits?'
By Matthew Balan | July 21, 2009 - 11:56
"PBS's Jim Lehrer ... urged the executive to "crack heads"
to get his health care plan passed, and inquired if "taxing the wealthy" was an option to fund it.
Lehrer later pressed Mr. Obama on the "huge profits" being made by "big Wall Street banks.""

####

The communists in the QueerMedia are not going to stop their propagandizing.

Lies and the politics of personal destruction, are stock and trade for the domestic and international Left.

What we need is true conservative alternatives, and I don’t mean Fox News.

Someone threw a molitov cocktail at the home of Jan Brewer’s top aide this week as well. That got minimal coverage even here at FR.

As the eldest of six children I would like to thank the obama administration for being the BIG BROTHER I never had.
I think my younger siblings would also like to thank him for his generosity towards us. We don’t think that we could have made it through the past year without HIM.
ALL PRAISE obama.

I totally believe that it will come to a halt. Democrats have totally mis-read the American people and totally underestimated them when they see things going against everything we believe in. Either the media gets on board with the people or they will go out of business. I think that eventually, their stock holders will abandon the media, unless they want to loose everything. We see this happening with Democrat voters already. The voters are beginning to see what’s really going on.

This will get much more heated befor Nov 2010 rolls around. The MARXISTS are not going to just allow the GOP to take back control of the House and/or the Senate without a REAL FIGHT. They have billions left in their porkulus and tarp slush funds and never forget all the sugar daddies the RAT party depends on. ACORN (or whatever they call themselves today)? SEIU? NEA? HOLLYWIERD? State run media?

Slick Willies’ Comment

***
...But I think that all you have to do is to read the paper every day to see how many there are who are deeply, deeply troubled. We know, now, that there are people involved in groups — these ‘hatriot’ groups, the Oath Keepers, the Three Percenters, the others — 99 percent of them will never do anything they shouldn’t do. But there are people who advocate violence and anticipate violence.

One of these guys the other day said that all politics is just a prelude to the ultimate and inevitable civil war. You know, I’m a southerner. I know what happened. We were still paying for that 100 years later when I was a kid growing up, in ways large and small. It doesn’t take many people to take something like that seriously. So I don’t want the whole story of this retrospective just to be about this, and to try to turn everything into politics...

You said it. Here's a shout out to Darryl Postell from your fellow Americans. Way to expose the racist libtard for what she was.

The author of the article also had a great quote at the end:

“Nowhere can the “Epic Fail” of the attempt to smear Americans can be seen more clearly than in the video above of Kelly O’Donnell, asking Darryl Postell whether “he felt comfortable among his fellow Americans.” I don’t know about Darryl, but I as a Black man feel more comfortable among Tea Party members than the whole nightly lineup at MSNBC.”

Battle lines have been drawn, by them. Its time for Americans to wake up and see this but too many people just want to look on the bright side. They will keep looking on the bright side until they are being marched toward an internment camp by these thugs. Alinsky understood human nature very well.

The kenyan and his minions like their slogan, "Yes We Can"; but I think we can defeat them with ours..."KEEP ON COMIN'".

As long as we march forward, in unison, to November 2nd, power up some power pellets of victory in the Congress, and "reload" and head for 2012.

You’re right, they can taste victory. 0bama getting elected was not their victory it was just their start. Victory will be when you cant tell the difference between the US and Venezuela anymore. If people think that in Novemeber we will just vote them out of office and this will be over well I’ve got some beachfront property in Death Valley I’d like to sell them.

There have been blacks at every tea party I have been to, and they walk about the crowd just like everyone else, in complete safety and comfort. Liberty is for everyone who wants it. Only leftists are obsessed with race, nobody else gives a rats arse.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The pure racism of this question can easily be seen if the participants were reversed!

If it were a white person at a predominantly black rally can you imagine this question being asked?

“How to you feel, Mr. Whitey, being in this group of blacks?”

BINGO! EXACTLY!

They will not go away. As it is now our nation is evenly split between the producers and moochers. They moochers are not going to give up the fight.

That is why conservatives must not only be fighting issues in the short term but also must have a long term strategy.

One of the **MOST** important things conservatives should do is to SHUT DOWN EVERY GOVERNMENT K-12 SCHOOL IN THIS NATION! ( Yes, I am shouting.)

And..Work to see that every child in this nation has access to a conservative private school that teaches the Judeo Christian values upon which our nation is built. Do this and conservatives will begin to take back the cultural institutions that are now dominated by the atheistic Marxists.

If anyone understood or now understands the daily evisceration of then President Bush, then you must recognize and accept the ongoing propaganda from the left and the MSM...they will never let up as long as the Tea Party is exposing the truth.

In order to learn what Obama and shadow government are doing you have to realize that Barack H. Obama was raised a Marxist/Communist from early childhood into his adult life with friends and mentors teaching and living (Saul Alinsky's rules) Obama is a Marxist Community Organizer...that is what a "community organizer" is...a communist - not an American in any way.

Good point, I send my kids to Catholic school for that reason. What sold me was when I toured the school and the kindergarten class recited the preamble to the Declaration Of Independence. Brought a tear to my eye. My daughter even surprised me when she told me she learned about the Green Mountain boys and wanted to get their flag. Thats the last thing the publik indoctrination compounds want you to know.

I was at the Washington, DC rally Thursday evening. These are the only two instances of "disruptors" I saw. I recall one instance of trouble, but I did not see it. The host of the rally simply thanked security and continued on with the show...

Code pinko in full uniform, despirately seeking media attention (and not getting it).

Being of the "other 95%" to which they are referring, I fail to see anything remotely resembling a tax cut.

CBS has an almost fair report:

Schieffer: Tea Partiers Not Just “A Bunch of Yahoos”

Tea party activists aren’t just a “bunch of yahoos who make a lot of noise” and are instead a “force to be reckoned with” for both Democrats and Republicans, “Face the Nation” moderator Bob Schieffer said on “The Early Show” Thursday.

A CBS News/New York Times poll delved deeper into the movement’s size, makeup and beliefs, revealing insights that could pose problems for both major parties, Schieffer said.

“I think the most important thing about this poll is we now have some sense of just how large a group this is. It represents about 18 percent of the voting public. That is a force to be reckoned with,” Schieffer told “Early Show” co-anchor Harry Smith.

“One thing the polls also show, this is not just a bunch of yahoos who make a lot of noise. We’re seeing they’re actually more educated than Americans in general. These are people who seem to have a legitimate anger building ... and I think that is the thing that both parties have to worry about.”[snip]

"PBS's Lehrer Badgers Obama from the Left: What About Banks' 'Huge Profits?' By Matthew Balan | July 21, 2009 - 11:56

(U.S. Charges Goldman Sachs With Fraud)

Sachs is being charged for what happened (Bird & Fortune...subprime loans)...just a reminder of how congress handled the last subprime mess....Pelosi's congress made no law to stop that from happening again.....anyone see or can find law to that? Chris Dodd skipped and Barny Frank is written all over this bundling, selling and giving people the right to make loans they have no hope of ever repaying. Frank is not betting along with the GS folks, he has his own little fiefdom which is just as crooked as GS....where was and or are the SEC folks? This is also a government (Timmy Geithner & Obama) huge power grab.

And Slick Willie has the gall to say this the same week leftist thugs physically accosted one of Jindal’s staffer’s and her boyfriend, leaving both seriously injured.

Add this to the false allegations of the “spitting” and the “N” word, and the beating of the black tea partier. Yet to date, not one Tea Party member has ever been arrested or accused of violence during a protest.
