    email from Feminist Majority
    Dear xxxx, Tell Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston that this country can not allow threats and intimidation to prevent doctors from providing abortion. Urge them to take action now to stop anti-abortion terrorist tactics in Wichita – before another abortion doctor is murdered. SIGN THE PETITION "Are doctors who are willing to provide [abortions] still just on their own, with their face on WANTED posters … waiting to see what happens next?" Rachel Maddow posed that question this week as she reported on the latest threats, harassment and terror campaign against Dr. Mila...

    "Here's the latest evidence that nothing has changed in post-Tucson America..." Writes Justin Elliott in Salon: A person at a Tuesday town hall with Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., got up and asked, "Who is going to shoot President Obama?" The exact wording of the question is not clear because, the Athens Banner-Herald reports, there was a lot of noise at the event. If you don't know the "exact wording," why do you have some words in quotes? This non-quote has gone viral in the leftosphere, the leftosphere where no one seems to mind all the violent and over-the-top language and...
  • Palestine an obsession of radical West, not Arabs

    "UNTIL the Palestinians are given back their rights we're going to have instability throughout the Middle East," declared John Pilger on ABC1's Q & A last night. "That is central to everything." Yet, one of the most striking things about the uprising in Egypt was the lack of pro-Palestine placards. As Egypt-watcher Amr Hamzawy put it, in Tahrir Square and elsewhere there were no signs saying "death to Israel, America and global imperialism" or "together to free Palestine". Instead, this revolt was about Egyptian people's own freedom and living conditions. Yet on the pro-Egypt demonstration in London on Saturday, there...
  • Why didn’t NYU fire Nir Rosen over Lara Logan?

    New York University’s Center on Law and Security allowed one of its fellows, Nir Rosen, to resign after he tweeted vile things about CBS war correspondent Lara Logan, who sustained a brutal sexual assault and beating in Cairo during pro-democracy celebrations. Why did the center’s executive director, Karen Greenberg, allow him to resign rather than to use the opportunity to take a tougher stand? Here's what she told me: “Nir has always been a really good supporter of the center and I think he realized he had overstepped his bounds....” ...Logan was with a CBS crew in Tahrir Square last...

    Three weeks of historic protests in Egypt upended President Hosni Mubarak’s regime on Friday with the world looking. But here at the Conservative Political Action Conference, hardly anyone took any notice. For the past 36 hours, television news broadcasts have been glued to the central square in Cairo as Mr. Mubarak appeared to be clinging to power before finally stepping down as president on Friday. Meanwhile, the Republican Party’s leading presidential hopefuls for 2012 gave major speeches to the faithful that gave no hint — with one exception — of the turmoil playing out in the Middle East. Mitt Romney,...

    Small explosion in Davos hotel, nobody hurtBy Emma Thomasson Friday January 28, 2011 DAVOS, Switzerland (Reuters) - Left-wing activists claimed responsibility for a small explosion on Thursday that broke windows at a hotel in Davos, close to where top executives and world leaders were meeting, but nobody was hurt. Devin Wenig, CEO of Thomson Reuters' Markets division, was in a breakfast meeting of senior executives at the hotel when the explosion happened shortly after 9 a.m. (0800 GMT). "A huge boom went off. The whole ceiling lifted. Everyone was convinced it was a bomb," he said, adding participants were told...

    January 21, 2011 Left wing climate of hate and assassination Jack Cashill Successful propaganda is composed of equal parts deception and suppression, and the apparatchiks in the mainstream media are much better at the latter. They may have erred in pushing the Arizona assassination attempt beyond its ideological limits last week, but they succeeded brilliantly a few months earlier in suppressing news of a nearly lethal attempt by a genuine leftist. In September 2010 Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to speak at Penn Valley Community College in Kansas City. At some point, wearing black clothes and a bullet-proof vest,...

    For 20 years I was a front man at the BBC, anchoring news and current affairs programmes, so I reckon nobody is better placed than me to answer the question that nags at many of its viewers — is the BBC biased? In my view, ‘bias’ is too blunt a word to describe the subtleties of the pervading culture. The better word is a ‘mindset’. At the core of the BBC, in its very DNA, is a way of thinking that is firmly of the Left. By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The...

    ... The Big Lie in "Immigration impasse ahead" -- to which every other erroneous and unsupported assertion is subordinate -- is the allegation that state legislators who support Arizona's SB1070 or wish to see the passage of a similar law in their own states have the same nefarious and's editors, "The assumption underlying such legislation is that the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country, including the 7 million who hold jobs, can and should be deported en masse." This Big Lie constitutes a central article of belief in the open-borders, pro-amnesty camp. It is repeated without the introduction of...

    Watch MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch connect the Tucson shootings with the “fact” that Arizona doesn’t recognize Martin Luther King Day, celebrated today ... ...There’s only one problem with this analysis … it’s flat-out wrong. Arizona began recognizing MLK Day in 1992, after a long battle over adding another paid holiday for government workers in the state. They weren’t even the last state to recognize it; New Hampshire changed Civil Rights Day to MLK Day in 1999. Utah changed Human Rights Day in 2000 to MLK Day, the same year South Carolina made it a paid holiday rather than just a day...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 12, 2011 | Kyle-Anne Shiver
    The left-wing radicals are at it again, folks. They're revving up their engines on the revolutionary wings of national mourning -- and sparking the now very familiar incitement-to-tyranny fires among an anxiety-ridden populace. Arizona families have not even buried their dead yet, and already a big-government Democrat has said he will introduce a bill making it illegal to "threaten" or "incite violence" against a federal official. First Amendment and personal accountability be darned. The big-government cultists are on the march. Another religious zealot of the "government can heal all wounds" cult, Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) has used the Arizona tragedy...

    It started Election Day November 2000 when Al Gore lost the presidential election to George W. Bush. That night Gore conceded the loss to Bush but then on the advice of Democrat partisans who cared more about the Democrat Party and Liberal Ideology above the political cohesiveness of the country Gore took his concession back. (See Global Political Meltdown) This launched the most tumultuous political period in recent American history, all because of Gore’s decision to throw the presidential election into utter chaos. Mr. Gore cast America into the great red state blue state divide in which we have witnessed...

    Below will go a list of some hateful, outrageous and incendiary comments and other similar stuff including death threats from people on the left wing spectrum of politics in order to prove the left's violent rhetoric has been getting out of hand and is inviting kooks to commit real acts of violence such as the shooting yesterday in Arizona by Jared Lee Loughner. It will be in no particular order and link to previous FR articles as evidence. I'll keep updating as I find more after this is posted. Anybody, of course can chime in.

    TUSCON, Ariz ( KTLA) -- Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged Tucson gunman, was described Saturday as a politically radical loner. Now an internet trail emerged in which he apparently railed against the US government and told friends: "Please don't be mad at me". There are unconfirmed reports that 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner once met with Rep. Giffords in 2007. A former high school friend said that he had often talked about meeting and talking with the congresswoman. Arizona court records show Loughner has twice been charged with previous offenses. The first, in October 2007, related to the possession...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/26/10 | Jeff Poor
    The show is called “Left, Right & Center,” although a more appropriate title would probably be “Far Left, Right, Progressive & Democrat” with its current cast of Robert Scheer, Tony Blankley, Arianna Huffington and Matt Miller. But despite the title of the program, don’t use those partisan labels around Huffington. On the Dec. 24 broadcast of KCRW’s “Left, Right & Center,” Huffington complained that the use of the political terms “left,” “right” or “left-wing” is preventing policymakers from solving “problems” because of the connotation tied to each of them. “Well, I actually feel that it would make a huge difference...

    The first direct link above is to Soros' own web page. Many of you will choose not to click on it and well that's your choice. But some of you should actively look and see for yourself. Open the PDF, scroll down to the year 2008. Electronic Frontier Foundation got 300,000 dollars from Soros. Now scroll down to the year 2007. Another 100,000 dollars. So the total is 400k. And there is more. Let's take a look at who it is that sits on their various boards: http://www.eff.org/about/advisoryboard I am aware of Ethan Zuckerman being a Soros buddy because of...

    It’s the Year of the Woman, all right. In a bad way. Some of the women running in high-profile races are not my cup of Tea. And some of the male candidates could be part of the Little Rascals’ He-Man, Woman-Haters Club. The misogyny reached its zenith outside a Rand Paul debate in Lexington, Ky., on Monday night when a group of Tea Party toughs roughed up a woman from MoveOn.org because she wouldn’t move on. In a campaign season when many men — and women — are taking harsh stances that could hurt women, a chivalrous voice has at...
  • Left vs. Right Question - Nazis were rightwing?

    10/25/2010 12:53:38 PM PDT · by Feline_AIDS · 92 replies
    Periodically I come to this same conundrum when I encounter people who attach the terms "Nazis" and "rightwing." I read Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, and from what I can gather, he is saying that the Nazis were socialists and nationalists at the same time, meaning they were nationalistic enough to be considered rightwing, even though they were on the left economically (and socially). A third way, not meeting in the middle--more like bending the spectrum backward so the two ends meet. Could someone explain this curious part of the political spectrum? Because Goldberg explains that nationalism was mostly a leftie...

    Has the White House been influenced by a convicted domestic terrorist for its attack on the Chamber of Commerce?The latest assault on the Chamber has been spear-headed by none other than the President himself and picked up by David Axelrod, MoveOn.org and all the usual Astro-Turfers who receive marching orders from the DNC. It’s become part of the standard talking points for cable-news pundits and their well-programmed guests and has been the new rallying cry for the left as they try their best to explain the imminent electoral disaster that looms on November 2nd. But one group was well ahead...
