    Comrades flocked to New York City two weeks ago for the 29th national convention of the Communist Party USA. While reviewing materials from the event, we had a sudden sense of déjà vu: the feeling that we had heard these talking points before. Maybe you have as well — they’re espoused, in near identical form, by the president and his fellow Democrats. Take the quiz below, and try to determine which quotes were uttered by Democratic leadership, and which are excerpts from the communists’ recent convention.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Free Republic is a moderated Internet forum, activist, and chat site for self-described conservatives, primarily within the United States. It presents articles and comments posted pseudonymously by registered members, known as "Freepers", using screen names. For each article, the forum's main page typically shows its headline, plus the first 100 words of the article as posted to Free Republic. Users can see the full article at its original source by clicking a hyperlink beneath the headline. Free Republic has been involved in several organized conservative campaigns including against CBS anchor Dan Rather and against the...

    When President Obama outlined his 2011 budget proposal in February, he said government cannot "continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences... as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money." On April 15, after laboring through their taxes, many Americans may be asking if the president meant what he said. More than three quarters of Americans, according to a CBS News/ New York Times poll released that same month, thought the Obama administration has either kept taxes the same for most Americans or increased them. The latest CBS News/ New York...

    These tea-party folks seem to most liberals-well, to most of us who live in the "reality community," or, as I like to call it, "reality"-like crazy fuckers. As a recent NY Times article reports, this hodgepodge of people and groups spout frankly paranoid beliefs as received wisdom, e.g. the Federal Reserve is our enemy and should be abolished, citizens should stock up on ammo, gold, and survival food in anticipation of an impending Civil War, states should "nullify" federal laws and even secede, medical records are being shipped to federal bureaucrats, the Army is seeking "Internment/Resettlement" specialists, Obama is trying...

    Two million people marching on Washington in protest? Get ready - after the Healthcare fight, they're going to crack down on free speech, free press and people assembling. And they're going to wrap their arguments in innocuous, even reasonable language such as "bringing diversity to the argument", "instilling civility to the debate", "making sure that only the truth gets discussed", etc. They'll do this to try to win the useful "moderate" tools that will go along with it. But I'm warning you: the crackdown on making your opinion known is coming.

    NYT ^ | August 29, 2009
    The talk in Washington is that Senate Democrats are preparing to push through health care reforms using parliamentary procedures that will allow a simple majority to prevail in their chamber, as it does in the House, instead of the 60 votes needed to overcome the filibuster that Senate Republicans are sure to mount. With the death of Senator Edward Kennedy, the Democrats do not have the votes just among their 57 members (and the two independents) to break a filibuster, and not all of these can be counted on to vote in lock step. If the Democrats want to enact...

    "A typical street whore." "A bunch of ghetto thugs." "Ghetto street trash." "Wonder when she will get her first abortion." These are a small selection of some of the racially-charged comments posted to the conservative 'Free Republic' blog Thursday, aimed at U.S. President Barack Obama's 11-year-old daughter Malia after she was photographed wearing a t-shirt with a peace sign on the front. The thread was accompanied by a photo of Michelle Obama speaking to Malia that featured the caption, "To entertain her daughter, Michelle Obama loves to make monkey sounds." Though this may sound like the sort of thing one...

    That's why I love David. He is very reactive as journalist. The more this story is covered, the better is to paint conservatives wingnuts as racists which they really are. Since november 4th 2008, I understand now the true meaning of "conservative : Racist and Bigot" according to some. The Irony is that the Young republicans group picked a racist to lead them :( (TheDailyBeast has a great piece on this story) So according to David Shuster's twitter page, Tam and him will cover the story on Monday.

    Most people on Daily Kos are (painfully) aware of Free Republic, the bottomless digital repository of bigotry, authoritarianism and hatred for most other Americans, all wrapped in 90's-era HTML. Usually, sane people who stop by there to check it out, find something utterly appalling within a few minutes of browsing, and close the page, never to return. Thus, there isn't a lot of detailed knowledge of Free Republic on Daily Kos. One important feature of the site is that it is community-supported through donation drives called "Freepathons." In 2008, Jim Robinson, the site founder, seems to have decided to purge...

The best ones as voted by the community may be incorporated in the plan we deliver to candidates for RNC Chairman. Being the bipartisan person that I am, I figured I would play too, and decided to post a modest idea. [more under the fold] So this is what I posted: embrace science. I want us to become the party...

    New Jersey Jewish News ^ | Nov 25, 2008 | Marc Stern
    A draft resolution scheduled for consideration by a committee of the United Nations General Assembly threatens to criminalize criticism of religion. In its current form, the resolution would declare defamation of religion to be a violation of international law. The resolution’s drafters hope to circumvent free-speech statutes in other countries, including the United States’ own First Amendment. The resolution is the culmination of many years of quiet work by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, representing more than 50 Muslim nations. The OIC has set as a goal the criminalization of any “defamation of religion, especially Islam” — and is...

I note that you did not say “Political Candidates”. You listed only one candidate (BO) in particular. I have a serious problem with you protecting only one single candidate. It seems like a violation of your office to only target what you perceive to be your political enemies. It’s more disturbing that you’re trying to get other elected officials both at the state and...

    The recent headlines about the legalization of gay marriage in California and the efforts to reverse that decision have left me dismayed. I may be in the minority among my fellow Christians, but I find myself increasingly ashamed by the words and actions of the leaders of the religious right. Why are so many squandering precious time in an attempt to outlaw gay marriage? We could be putting our efforts for God to much better use! There are far more pressing issues the world is facing today. It should not be the priority of so many to prevent two men...

    SAN FRANCISCO — California's highest court considered this week whether doctors' religious beliefs give them the right to withhold medical treatment from lesbians and gay men, a group specifically protected under state anti-discrimination laws. Taking up a case that has pitted the promise of religious liberty against the guarantee of equal access, the state Supreme Court heard oral arguments May 28 in a lawsuit brought by a woman who claims her Christian doctors refused to perform artificial insemination on her because of her sexual orientation.
