  • Ugly: Liberals Turn to Dirty Tricks, Violence as Election Approaches

    10/26/2012 3:19:53 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | October 25, 2012 | Guy Benson
    Cast your mind back to the rise of the Tea Party, when any liberal within shouting distance of a microphone conspicuously opined about the very worrisome violent undertones of the movement.  After Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot by an apolitical madman, the Left instantly blamed conservative speech and delivered bad-faith lectures about the importance of "civility."  And as Republicans (and some Democrats) have pushed common-sense voter identification laws to ensure the integrity of our electoral system, so-called progressives have furiously denounced their opponents' alleged "voter suppression" efforts.  With all of that in mind, how are some liberals behaving in the...
  • 'Every dead gay kid is victory for FRC' (Family Research Council)

    10/02/2012 9:40:34 PM PDT · by Perseverando · 18 replies ^ | October 2, 2012 | Bob Unruh
    Homosexual activist unleashes another rant against Christians Homosexual activist Dan Savage, who earlier this year told school students to ignore the bull- in the Bible, now has unleashed a tirade at Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. FRC was targeted just weeks ago when suspected gunman Floyd Lee Corkins entered the organizations headquarters and shot and injured a man serving as a guard. The gunman reportedly had been a volunteer in a gay community center and made reference to the FRCs Bible-based position on homosexuality. At the time, Perkins said the attack came in an atmosphere created by groups such...
  • CNN and MSNBC Pundit Arrested for Vandalizing Anti-Muslim Ad In N.Y. Subway System

    The New York Post reported Egyptian-American columnist Mona Eltahawy has been arrested for defacing an anti-Muslim ad in the New York subway system. The video shows her spraying pink paint on the ad while a supporter of the ad tries to block her. She's a journalist for censorship. Eltahawy, a former Reuters correspondent, has been a recent favorite of CNN and MSNBCs weekend morning shows to discuss Egypt, and she often smears together the Islamist right wing and the American right wing, as she did on Melissa Harris-Perry just 11 days ago [video and transcript below]: Read more:

    For several tense weeks, our nation has been broiling unpleasantly in the cultural equivalent of polyunsaturated fat. And despite any profits or political points made during this Chick-fil-A debacle, I think weve all gotten a bit burned. As everyone now knows, this entire ordealfrom the Mike Huckabee-orchestrated Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, to the Same-Sex Kiss Day that came after, the talking heads, the relentless stream of articles and opinion pieces on the controversy, the thousands upon thousands of online comments, the vitriolic tweets, impulsive Facebook statuses, and equally tart replies, the strained friendships, heated arguments with family members, all of itbegan...
  • IL Activist Wants Chick-fil-A Run Out of Business

    08/06/2012 11:38:59 AM PDT · by RealTeen · 94 replies ^ | 8-6-2012 | Justin Higgins
    Choosing not to eat at Chick-fil-A (or choosing to eat there, as millions did last week) because of the ownership's views on gay marriage is one thing, but calling for their business partners to disown them is a little different. I am not opposed to boycotts, or buy-cotts like the one that occured last Wednesday, although I often question their legitimacy. I am opposed to bullying from political officials and activist groups trying to drive companies out of business through coercion, as Equality Illinois' director of public policy proposes: In a petition, Equality Illinois is urging socially responsible business and...

    A powerful New York politician claims she was just speaking as a private citizen when she tried to run Chick-fil-A out of town, but she used her official letterhead and even invoked her position as City Council speaker to apply pressure on the embattled chicken chain. New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who has mayoral aspirations, sent a letter to New York University president John Sexton on Saturday asking the school to immediately end their contract with the fast food restaurant. The Atlanta-based company's sole New York City outlet is in the school's food court. "I write as the...

    Chick-Fil-A has become the target of a Democrat-led campaign in support of gay marriage The relentless war by the left on Christians and biblical values has reached a new and more frightening phase with announcements by Democrat mayors and city officials across the country that they are banning fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A from their cities because company president Dan Cathy said unapologetically that he is in "support of the traditional family." Make no mistake about it; this is much bigger than Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.

    Chick-Fil-A came under criticism this month after a report by the organization Equality Matters revealed that the company donated around $2 million to antigay Christian organizations in 2010. Guilty as charged, the fast-food chains president Dan Cathy said over allegations that his company is antigay (We are very much supportive of the familythe biblical definition of the family unit.). So. Here we are. Tumblr, listen up. Were hoping to find a current or former employee of Chick-Fil-A who might want to spill the beans on life inside the alleged antigay company. If thats you, or you know someone who might...

    A school-cafeteria lunch lady and her husband have received hate mail, unwanted visits from reporters and fearful inquiries from neighbors all because their Sanford-area address is being disseminated on Twitter as belonging to Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, her son said late Tuesday. The woman, 70, who has a heart condition, and her husband, 72, have temporarily moved to a hotel to avoid the spotlight and possible danger, said son Chip Humble of Longwood. The woman has another son named William George Zimmerman who lived with her in 1995 and still lives in Central Florida. He is no relation...

    It was a set up. From start to finish. A quite specific, quite detailed plot to get Rush Limbaugh, ruin his career, and drive him off the air. Next targets? Sean Hannity and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Lots to cover here. Let's start with Mr. Angelo Carusone. Who is Angelo Carusone? Today he is now the "Director of Online Strategy for Media Matters for America." But a few years back? He was just your basic left-wing law student with a standard left-wing passion. That passion? Totalitarian-style censorship.

    Andrew Breitbart's Big Government ^ | February 14, 2012 | Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, esquire
    The Internet was abuzz this weekend when Andrew Breitbart was captured on video taking on a group of occupiers who were protesting CPAC at the Wardman Marriott in Washington, D.C. Video posted by the Huffington Post showed Breitbart facing off with a group of about a hundred Occupy demonstrators who were shouting leftist epithets. Andrew responded by shouting, Stop raping people! Murderers! At first glance, when only watching the Huffington Post footage, it may seem like Andrew lost his cool, and that he was provoking these otherwise peaceful demonstrators. What the Huffington Post did not report is why Andrew marched...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Washington state officials on Monday released copies of signature petitions that forced a vote on a 2009 domestic partnership law, disclosing the names of signers after a judge rejected arguments that supporters could be harassed. The Washington State Archives provided a DVD to The Associated Press showing the 138,000 signatures for Referendum 71. The release came despite an attorney's vow to appeal the ruling and seek temporary protection from the disclosure of names.

    ( - American journalism is in "grave peril," FCC Commissioner Michael Copps says, and to bolster "traditional media," he said the Federal Communications Commission should conduct a "public value test" of every commercial broadcast station at relicensing time. In a speech at the Columbia University School of Journalism in New York on Thursday, Copps also said station relicensing should happen every four years instead of the current eight. "If a station passes the Public Value Test, it of course keeps the license it has earned to use the peoples airwaves," Copps said. "If not, it goes on probation for a...

    Beaverton middle school teacher Jason Levin, who founded the now notorious "Crash the Tea Party" website, is no longer a teacher. Jason Levin Levin resigned Wednesday in lieu of termination, said Beaverton School District Legal Counsel Camellia Osterink. District officials would not say why Levin was facing dismissal, but that it followed an internal investigation into his use of public resources and time spent at school. "There was some question whether that conduct occurred during the work day," Osterink said of Levin's work on the website. Reached today, Levin said, "My attorney has advised me not to comment." His attorney,...

    Last week, Nina Easton, the Washington editor of Fortune, wrote a column about the SEIU and National Peoples Action. The two progressive groups had sent roughly 500 protesters to Eastons Chevy Chase neighborhood on May 16th to picket the front yard of Bank of Americas Greg Baer. Easton had just put her 2-year-old son down for a nap, and stepped outside to ask the protesters to quiet down. They didnt. Easton wrote a column. And now shes become the target of the SEIU and Media Matters for America.
