Such groups included Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress and People for the American Way (PFAW),

    (Wisconsin) Journal Sentinel ^ | Aug. 16, 2015 | Craig Gilbert
    When Gov. Scott Walker steps onto a "soapbox'" stage Monday morning at the Iowa State Fair, he can count on at least one thing. People will protest. [SNIP] ...there's the unpredictability, disruption and touch of chaos that protests can inject into his campaign events. The day after the Aug. 6 GOP debate, Walker was besieged by 60 sidewalk protesters as he ate corned beef and spoke to patrons and reporters inside a cramped Cleveland deli. "Hey hey, ho ho, union busters got to go," demonstrators chanted, two of them on stilts, one in an oversized "Scott Walker, Koch puppet" costume....

    Atheist Socialist Right Wing Watch “exposes” Julio Severo, again… By Julio Severo Right Wing Watch, a major American socialist group, has again “exposed” me to its U.S. leftist audience for politically incorrect views.  Right Wing Watch “said”: Finally, Julio Severo is not happy with the nomination of Eric Fanning to serve as Secretary of the Army: “I am sure that in Obama’s and Fanning’s case, the Father of America would approve sentence on them and he would treat, with abhorrence and detestation, their sodomy and sodomy advocacy as an infamous crime. In the least, Obama would be expelled from...

    Human Events’ readers, in an online poll, recently voted billionaire financier George Soros “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Here are the Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous1. Gives billions to left-wing causes: Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes. Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups. This partial list of recipients of Soros’ money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty...

    People for the American Way’s Leftist Diatribe Against a Brazilian Conservative By Julio Severo The American Way should be to expose and destroy tyrannies, especially socialism. But do not tell that to the People for the American Way (PFAW), which, according to WorldNetDaily, is “an atheist socialist organization which, through publications like its ‘Right Wing Watch,’ dedicates itself to the destruction of conservatives in general.” Former leftist U.S. Presidente Bill Clinton in People for the American Way The latest attack from “Right Wing Watch” was against me, Julio Severo, in a piece entitled “BarbWire Pundit Defends Brazil’s Past Violent...

    The American Thinker Blog ^ | January 11, 2012 | Peter Wilson
    It won't shock AT readers to learn that the Left is deceitful, but here's another piece of evidence: a fundraising letter from Ralph Neas's People for the American Way (PAW) arrived in the mail today. The outside of the envelope and the letter inside display a large photo identified as "Demonstrators at Presidential Inauguration." The signs held by these "demonstrators" read: "God Hates Obama," "Fags Love Obama," and "Hell to the Chief." Anyone paying the slightest attention knows that signs with the word "fag" and "God hates..." most likely originate from the despicable Westboro Baptist Church, and sure enough, a...

    Dear xxxxx, The political balance of power was decided last night by just a few thousand votes. We were just two thousand votes from a political earthquake, but the fact remains that we gained ground, they lost it. Republicans held on to their majority -- barely -- by cashing in on their massive corporate support and the unlimited dollars which flowed from that support in the post-Citizens United era. But we changed the game and seized momentum heading into the next battles. This David vs. Goliath fight, in which underdog progressives successfully took down two Goliaths and came incredibly close...

    Despite opposition from three quarters of Wisconsinites, last night Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate rammed through their bill attacking working families. This attack is not just about Wisconsin ... it's an attack on working Americans throughout the country, driven by ideology and powerful corporate interests. Last night's one-party vote was a vote against the people who teach our kids to read, who plow our roads during blizzards, who help us when we're sick and who rush into burning buildings. Last night, they gave up any pretense that their agenda has anything to do with the budget -- these provisions are...

    Kristen just told me the response to this membership renewal drive has been so excellent that we are within striking distance of raising $100,000 in online gifts for the month! If we can get there, that means we'll have the resources to hire professional organizers in Wisconsin, Ohio and other key states where the Right is waging the most aggressive assault on American workers' rights that we've seen in generations. We've got about $10,000 to go, but in order to get there by midnight tonight, I need your help. Can you help us close the gap and put boots on...

    Public employees are teachers, police officers, sanitation workers, firefighters, snow plow drivers ... they are our friends, family and neighbors ... most are not rich, but they work hard and earn their benefits. I oppose attempts by politicians to gut their benefits and take away their rights, all to satisfy a partisan, political agenda. I stand in support of Wisconsin's public employees, the Wisconsinites across the state protesting on their behalf and the state senators who have left the state in order to prevent Gov. Walker's draconian proposal from passing in the legislature. Dear xxxxx, Wisconsin's Tea Party Governor, Scott...

    Tell potential presidential contender and South Dakota's most nationally visible "pro-life," Republican elected official, U.S. Sen. John Thune, to speak out against the reckless "justifiable homicide" bill in his home state's legislature! Dear Have you heard the latest out of South Dakota? A right-wing state legislator, in an effort to advance the embryos-are-citizens-too movement and demolish a woman's right to choose, has introduced a bill which would make homicide "justifiable" if done to protect the life of an unborn child. This is an unbelievably extreme attack on women's reproductive choice ... one that transcends the choice issue and crosses all...

    American Thinker ^ | October 3, 2010 | Ed Lasky
    When Eli Lake's story regarding J Street's donor list was published the role of George Soros created controversy. Soros has a long history of funding anti-Israel activism so his role at J Street was deliberately hidden by the group for years. Now more revelations have started to leak. I did a bit of further research (hat tip: Cheryl Lewin) about another donor and supporter of J Street: Gail Furman. She sits on its advisory council and is a donor listed on its Form 990  . She is also a member of the board of the Soros-created Democracy Alliance - a...

    Dear xxxx, Sometimes you fight the good fight and lose... and keeping up the fight becomes even more important. Yesterday, Republicans took control of the House of Representatives riding an electoral wave of economic frustration stemming from the Great Recession, along with an energized right-wing base and unprecedented -- and undisclosed -- corporate cash. We lost some progressive heroes, like Senator Russ Feingold and Rep. Alan Grayson. It's a solemn day, indeed... it's important to pause and reflect on the service of these great Americans and to assess the challenges ahead. But it's also important to acknowledge the hard work...

    Dear xxxx, The results of Tuesday's elections in Maine, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and Washington were a mixed bag but there are some clear lessons we can learn. Voters rejected right-wing radicalism. Democrats who fail to stand up for Democratic and progressive principles fail in elections. The Right's lies still work. Despite the stinging loss for marriage equality in Maine, evidence elsewhere shows voters moving towards support of equality for all Americans. The Far Right strengthened its grip on the Republican Party. We have a lot of work to do to educate people, expose right-wing lies and counter the...

    Dear xxxxxx, This past weekend, at the urging of FOX News mouthpiece Glenn Beck, tens of thousands of tea baggers, birthers and other right-wing conspiracy theorists descended on Washington DC, many to show off their extreme hatred of President Obama and Democratic congressional leaders. Among the signs, characterizing the president as everything from a nazi to an illegal immigrant to the Antichrist, more than a few were spotted hailing Rep. Joe Wilson as a new hero of the right-wing extremist movement for his infamous "You lie!" outburst during the president's recent congressional address. One sign even read, "We Are All...

    Without realizing it, I have apparently evolved – or been promoted. Instead of being just an average, everyday garden variety Republican, I am suddenly one of “them.” Without application or initiation, I now have a “hard line” membership with the far right – and the astonishing thing is, I didn’t have to do a damn thing to receive it, sort of like a President Obama tax “cut.” No longer am I just a middling conservative, or a meager traditionalist. I am an honest-to-goodness, above-board extremist now. How cool is that? I honestly thought there’d be more work involved in earning...
