    Electronic music pioneer Moby (real name Richard Melville Hall) went on quite the Twitter tirade on Saturday, railing against “racist, xenophobic, ignorant” Republicans who “support war” and “hate immigrants.” The musician, who has campaigned for and written open letters to President Obama, began his rant in standard fashion, calling Republicans “loathsome” and linking to a Los Angeles Times article about NASA funding:

  • Eric Garcetti, L.A.'s First Elected Jewish Mayor, Will Take His Oath On A Christian Bible

    Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti still has a lot of decisions to make about his upcoming inauguration. Should he sit in with Moby, or would that be too show-offy? Which food truck should he hit first? But one decision seems to have been made. Garcetti -- L.A.'s first elected Jewish mayor -- will take his oath on a Christian Bible. His spokesman, Diego de la Garza, said the Bible belonged to Garcetti's Catholic grandmother. As a candidate, Garcetti often noted that he would be the first elected Jewish mayor in the city's history. (One was appointed in the 1870s.) However, his heritage...
  • 10 Musicians Who Should Be Blacklisted By Conservatives

    <p>Republicans spend too much time complaining about liberals boycotting the advertisers on conservatives’ shows and not enough time doing the same thing to the Left. If movie stars trash conservatives, we should be very publicly telling people we're not going to their films and we should take credit if they bomb. If a corporate CEO embraces liberalism, don't buy that company’s products and tell the world why you're doing it. Let him explain to his board of directors why standing up for gay marriage or abortion was worth losing millions of dollars. Seventy percent of the country is Christian, roughly half the country supports the Republican Party and forty percent of Americans are conservative. There are a lot of businesses, artists and musicians who simply cannot survive without the support of people like us. The only reason they dare to trash us or publicly support people who hate our guts is because we all too often shrug our shoulders and then willingly hand over our money to people who despise us.</p>

    Survey after survey has shown that views on basic social issues often move very slowly. But support for marriage equality is turning out to be one big exception to the rule. According to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, 58 percent of Americans now think it should be legal for same-sex couples to get married. That is an astounding increase from a low of 32 percent less than a decade ago. And in another shift that is seen as directly related to support for equal rights, only 24 percent see homosexuality as a choice, compared to 40 percent almost 20...

The states need to ban it. 4. There is no right to contraception. 5. Contraception leads to abortion. 6. Stop sexual immorality.
  • Who really invented ‘Moby’ trolling? Alinsky

    05/25/2012 1:06:59 PM PDT · by mnehring · 23 replies
    In blogosphere slang, a ‘Moby‘ is a particular kind of troll, namely a left-winger who posts right-wing extremist material on right-wing sites in order to discredit them. (This is somewhat distinct from a ‘concern troll‘, who seeks to sow dissension by posing as a concerned supporter.) The ‘Moby’ species of troll is named after the eponymous electronic music producer, who in February 2004 proposed this tactic and is supposed to have invented it. James Taranto, however, reminds us the tactic is anything but original. Food for thought comes from this passage from a Saul Alinsky biography, quoted by David Horowitz:”...

    American Conservative ^ | 2010-02-08 | Jack Hunter aka Southern Avenger
    During her speech to the first ever National Tea Party Convention in Nashville on Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin discouraged the very idea of a national organization, urging the movement to stay leaderless and decentralized. This was the most important and valuable part of Palin’s speech. As for the rest of it–Sarah sounded pretty much like the same old Republican Party. Despite the many independents that make up the movement, the tea parties in large part represent a long overdue reexamination of conservative principles. A big-spending Democratic president seems to have awakened grassroots conservatives enough to finally lament the...

    Bad news for all those tea drinking vegans on the lower east side. Late last week, Teany Cafe — an NYC vegan eatery co-founded by Moby — was destroyed in a fire. According to reports, an electrical fire ignited the vegan restaurant and gutted the building on Rivington Street. Moby opened the joint in 2002 with this his then girlfriend Kelly Tisdale, and later turned it over to Tisdale exclusively. On his blog, Moby wrote: ”Apparently Kelly is working hard to repair it and get it re-opened. So there’s a good chance that Teany will re-open at some point in...

    LONDON (AFP) — Beatles legend and famous vegetarian Paul McCartney was joined by John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono Monday to launch an appeal for "meat-free Mondays." McCartney said going vegetarian, even for just one day a week, was good for the environment because of research suggesting it cuts greenhouse gas emissions from the world's livestock population. "I thought this was a great idea. To just reduce your meat intake maybe by one day a week and this would seriously benefit the planet," he told reporters, alongside Ono and a bevy of other stars including Kelly Osbourne and Moby.

    A new study shows that states that consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption. "When it comes to adult entertainment, it seems people are more the same than different," says Benjamin Edelman at Harvard Business School. However, there are some trends to be seen in the data. Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds. "Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things...

    I was among the 19% that voted for Ross Perot in '92, my vote otherwise would have been a Bush vote. At work the day after the election a young liberal co-worker asked my what terrible things did I think was going to happen just because Bill Clinton was president. All I could say was he seemed disingenious to me, untrustworthy, a people pleaser. Now in hindsight I know the answer. The military and intelligence agencies was under assault right away with downsizing of funds and personnel. Political leanings took precedence over ability and experience at high ranking positions. "Clinton...

    "in most of the presidential polls john kerry is losing to george bush. which sucks. but which is also statistically irrelevant. these polling companies stay in business by convincing people that their work is significant and relevant. but it can't be, except in the most general sense. and here's why... polls are done over the phone. over 'land lines', to be specific. because the only phone directories that exist are for land-lines. so here's my many of you primarily use a home land-line when using the telephone? not many, right? i'd say that 1/2 of my friends don't even...

    Conservatives Take Back Seat at Republican Convention NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Republican Party is presenting a moderate image at its national convention but conservatives who dominate the party say they are happy to stay in the background, confident that President Bush (news - web sites) will take care of their interests if he wins the election. "The speakers at the convention may be thought of as moderate but their message is a strong conservative message. They are not going to be speaking about abortion rights or same sex marriage -- that would go down like a lead balloon,"...

    Noticed that Senator John Mc Cain looks a little pained in his advertisements supporting President Bush? Rock Star MOBY says he knows why: "I'm best friends with (John's son) Sid McCain. Hohn McCain HATES President Bush. He's just doing those ads to help the Republicans." We asked Moby if he'd be protesting the convention. "I'm just going to sit by and watch," he said. "I'm not hopeful."

    Fox&Friends ^ | 8-25-04 | Todd has yet again made a new attempt to bring down Bush, a commercial talking about Bush losing 1.8 million jobs and it's voiced by Matt Damon, the commercial doesn't talk about 9-11 being involved or the clinton administration. Another attempt is a concert against bush with the following artists, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, R.E.M., the Dixie Chicks, John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Babyface, Death Cab for Cutie, Ben Harper, Jurassic 5, My Morning Jacket, Keb' Mo' and Bright Eyes. I hope everyone will boycott those artists, and actors...

    Protesters have been targeting government and corporate websites for years. But when online activists strike at Republican domains during the G.O.P.'s convention later this month, the digital demonstrations might turn out to be more than symbolic, for once. In the past, activists have been able to shut down the website of, say, the World Economic Forum for a few hours. But the impact of such a takedown was nebulous at best: It's hard to argue the organization really suffered from a few-hour lag in posting its press releases online. In this year's presidential race, however, campaign websites have moved beyond...

    Last weekend's hatefest in New York City, in which John Kerry endorsed the vicious attack of Hollywood hacks on the Commander-in-Chief, provides a sad portent of things to come. Leftist hate group announced last week that it has enlisted the help of the Hollywood elite in its partisan campaign to smear the president and stigmatize America’s War on Terror. According to a Time magazine story (“I’m Rob Reiner, and I Approve This Ad”), such Hollywood powerhouses as Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, Rob Reiner, “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Al Franken, the ubiquitous Kevin...
  • Last night I snuck in to F911 (didn't want to give Moore $10) (and all I got was this lousy ZOT!!!)

    Thought half of it was BS -- vague implications with no follow through. But the stuff about corporate links to the war, the Afgan pipeline, connections with the Saudis really caught me off guard. I got home and searched for info to debunk everything and only found info that supported Moore's claims. Also, I live in NYC and the "keep them afraid and people will do anything" hit a bit too close to home. Anyone else see it? Anyone else have questions and doubts? I'm not some DUer planting seeds, I'm just wondering how others are incorporating some of F911's...

    I AM A conservative Republican on most issues. But I can't donate to the GOP or vote for President Bush based on his - and the party's - stance on animal rights. I am a vegan and a proud member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I'm disappointed that the Bush administration has done nothing to improve animals' lives. I saw a video of President Bush at a campaign stop during the 2000 election. In it, a reporter asks "What do you think about PETA?" Then-Gov. Bush responded sarcastically, "I'm glad I ate my bacon for breakfast today."...
