WaPo's Kathleen Parker on CBS: Tea Parties 'Dangerous;' Internet Journalism 'Like Terrorism'
Newsbusters ^ | 4/19/10 | Kyle Drennan

Posted on 04/19/2010 6:10:28 PM PDT by pissant

On Sunday's Face the Nation on CBS, host Bob Schieffer asked columnist Kathleen Parker about her views on the tea party: "the rhetoric that's coming out from the right side, especially from the tea party....you think it may be dangerous." Parker replied: "this heated rhetoric and some of these words...that are pretty loaded, 'reload,' 'targeting'...there's a danger there."

Parker, syndicated with the Washington Post Writers Group, claimed she was not casting negative aspersions on the whole political movement: "I'm not saying the tea party people are violent or racist or any of that....I'm not saying that the tea partiers are bad people or dangerous," but warned: "I just think we have to be very vigilant....and be extremely careful, because I do think there is a lot of anger and it could become something else."

In short who cares what she says, thinks, writes or experiences?

Seems like they sent out the Marxist-loving reporters/journalists/commentators en masse to disparage the tea partiers, their latest cliche of the day being to try to link them to terrorists.

Sickening.

I’m not saying kathleen throws inuendos against the wall, I’m not saying she is supportive of communism, i’m not saying she is part of a MSM conspiracy to push a sock puppet into the oval office, I’m just saying some journalists would like their elitist status and Old Russian Style Communism with the FREE arts elite (as long as the party line was towed) seems to be their choice of tea.

Schieffer’s credibility is not so great. He has been a progressive/socialist his entire career and it shows in his flagrant left leaning bias.

"moments after warning of tea party extremism, Parker made this comparison:

"It's, sort of, like terrorism. You know, we don't know where to aim our bombs, so we can't go after a country because there are – you know, there's no one place to focus on it. And it's the same thing with – with the Internet. You can't really – you don't know who to go after."

THAT sounds intelligent, doesn't it" You know, you know......! Shades of Hillary and Caroline, etc.

I’m astounded, OK really I’m not...

How much longer is it going to take until the MSM-Lame streamers collapse on themselves under the weight of the bias and lies?

Is it really possible that the leftist socialist media believes that THEY can spew hatred and it’s OK, but ignore and forget the unending crapola that was thrown out by them and their ILK at “W”?

The KOS Kiddies and DemonUnderGround slung so much vitriol and death threats, death wishes and all other filth, yet there were no great cautions about THEM...

I wish there was a “That Was Easy” button that would just vaporize them all...we win.

There WILL be a fight one way or another.

WE THE PEOPLE are coming for you FILTHY SOCIALISTS!

Hey Kathleen, guess what, we have reloaded and are targeting the MSM. It is our daily job to expose the lies, propaganda, far left media bias and blatant use of Alinksy tactics to "report the news". Little do you know that you and many like you will disappear when the communists have full control of the country and declare martial law. Is that what the MSM has been working so hard for all these years? Yes, we are in a Cold War with Obama and will not rest until he and his communist cadre are gone and America is restored.

Kathleen wants to think that the Tea Party folks are the problem and not the solution? ROFLMAO!

We moved to ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ when I was just shy of 10 years old. We had escaped that hell hole of Socialism called ‘Milwaukeestan’ because Dad had finally landed his First Good Job and we were movin’ on up.

Sterling Hall was bombed on August 24, 1970. My Dad took Sis and I to see the carnage and to show us up close and personal that A MAN HAD DIED because of the stupid hippies protesting the war.

Karlton Armstrong eventually returned, VICTORIOUS to ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ after his prison term and was allowed to open a business here!!

I hate this town. I can’t WAIT for the old dogs and the parents to pass on so I can get the hell OUT!

http://www.madison.com/library/LEE/sterlinghall.html

“On Aug. 24, 1970, at 3:42 a.m., the bomb, consisting of more than a ton of ammonium nitrate fertilizer soaked in fuel oil and packed in a Ford van, exploded outside Sterling Hall, killing a physics researcher and damaging 26 buildings.”

(Tim McVeigh before he was even BORN. Trust me; he studied the Sterling Hall bombing as a primer on how to destroy Oklahoma City.)

So, BITE ME, Kathleen. You and YOUR ilk ARE the enemy! Beotch.

Gee, I wonder how this fits with the New Orleans violence against those attending a Republican fund raiser last week? A couple viciously attacked by protesters gave the male a broken jaw, nose and concussion and the lady suffered a leg broken in four places when she was stomped after being pushed to the ground. Another couple barely made it to the safety of a cab. Not Blacks, not muggers but a mob of anti-Republican party, pro-Marxist anarchists. The MSM (except for Fox and local coverage) has ignored it -- guess it doesn't fit with their "only Tea-Party attendees are violent" scenarios.

The campaign to link the tea party with terrorism is in full swing with no response from the Republicans. Republicans should have an immediate response: “Yes, let’s do talk about real domestic terrorists. How can President Obama consider Bill Ayers a close friend given his history of violence against people and the government? How could Bill Clinton pardon the Puerto Rico terrorists? There is no evidence any Tea Party participant has committed violence so let’s talk about the real domestic terrorists”

The Polish underground press drew on experiences of Second World War veterans of Armia Krajowa and much attention was paid to conspiracy; however, after martial law in Poland and the government crackdown on Solidarity, the activities of underground publishing were significantly curtailed for several years following. However, with the communist government losing power in the second half of the 1980s, production of Polish underground printing (in Poland known as bibuła) dramatically increased and many publications were distributed throughout the entire country. After the Autumn of Nations in 1989 some of the underground publishers transformed into regular and legal publishing houses. There were important differences of scale between Polish underground publishing and the samizdats of the Soviet Union, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and other countries in the Soviet-bloc. In the 1980s, at any given time there were around one hundred independent publishers in Poland who formed an extremely interesting institution of an underground market. Books were sold through underground distribution channels to paying customers, including the top communist leaders.[citation needed] Among a few hundred periodicals, the "Tygodnik Mazowsze" weekly reached an average circulation of 60,000 - 80,000, copies, while some issues topped 100,000. The estimated production of books and thick journals can be put close to one thousand per year and more than one million copies. Other products on this market included cassettes, videocassettes, postcards, stamps, and calendars. [edit] External links

Where there is a will, there is a way.

We WILL toppple the Government-Media Complex in the United States, of which this Kathleen Parker is highly representative.

We are the true heirs to "Solidarity" in Liberated Poland.

They will be defeated. The People are rising up. We will prevail.
