Obama The Lightweight Lightfoots Around Patriot Movement.

As usual, the Associated Press gets it all upside down and purposely wrong. When I was in broadcasting years ago, the AP was a mainstay in news reliability and journalistic integrity. The first source I would head for in a breaking news environment would be the AP wire machine. My, how times have changed.

Today, AP wrote that our ‘I wanna be just like Hugo Chavez’ President was said to be stepping lightly around the subject of the Patriot Movement, what the ever-lame statist press loves to call the ‘Tea Partiers’, with that condescending smarmy tone they love to use. Then they state that the Republican Party wants to co-opt our ‘passion and our votes’.

If they did ten minutes research with any source other than the Washington Post, they’d know that the Republican party is co-opting nothing. They are falling in line behind the conservative patriot movement as fast as they can. The ‘new’ Republican leadership, which we have seen emerging from the battle over health care, are well aware that this is not the haphazard gathering of disgruntled voters that the left is so wont to portray. It’s a huge groundswell which is growing and gaining ground daily. Any movement that can produce twenty to thirty thousand people at the Capitol, virtually on an overnight notice such as occurred over the weekend of the health care voting, is one which has considerable clout.

Barack Hussein Obama was very circumspect in taking shots at the Patriots, though he tried to characterize the supposed ‘core’ of the patriot movement as being ‘on the fringe’. That’s funny. The Patriot Movement as a whole views Obama, his administration, and that whole whacked out De-Marxist Congress as being far more than ‘fringe’. We view him and them as being irretrievably over the edge. They’ll find out just how much in November, as more and more Democrat dominoes fall over.

Three quick points I would like to make here

The ‘new’ Republican leadership, which we have seen emerging from the battle over health care...

I must have missed that one.  All I saw was McConnell, Boehner, and Cantor going around proclaiming their thumb-in-the-butt strategy.  The real winners in the health care debate were the Blue Dogs.  They came out stronger than ever, a force to be reckoned with.  So, I suppose that this "'new' Republican leadership" must be the Blue Dog Democrats.

When I was in broadcasting years ago... 

Frankly, I can see why you're an ex-broadcast journalist.  This post shows what some of the worst of blogs is all about-- the incapacity of a writer to self-edit.  I think they should have spent a little bit more time on "loaded language" and "logical fallacies" (eg an appeal to emotion) in whatever school of broadcast journalism you went to.  For that matter, AP is not one service, but a number of services which the subscriber can choose from.

Barack Hussein Obama was very circumspect in taking shots at the Patriots, though he tried to characterize the supposed ‘core’ of the patriot movement as being ‘on the fringe’....

We view him and them as being irretrievably over the edge.

One of those named holds elected office.  In the interviews with members of the other group that I've seen, the majority state that they are not active in the political process, eg they don't vote.

This from Time:

For Democrats, as opposed to Republicans, the wing is not the base.

For far too long in the Republican Party, the fringe has driven the party.  To continue to do so will be to fail in the opportunity to capitalize on the general discontent with the hope-y change-y stuff.  That is to say, the Democratic Party (and in particular, their Congressional leadership) will drive people away in droves, but they won't be going anywhere if the alternative is hare-brained and out of touch mean-spirited misanthropes.

I seem to remember George F. Will lamenting the demise of statesmanship.  Not so sure you could understand that.

Pick another word.

Gotta love how the teabagger racists call themselves "patriots".  Tell me, what's so patriotic about yelling racial and homophobic slurs at our elected leaders?  What is so patriotic about death threats?  What is so patriotic about spitting in the face of a civil rights icon?

And by the way, kindly pick another word.  "Patroit" is already taken and is reserved for people who actually love their country and fellow countrymen.  You guys can have the word "hateriot".  It's much more fitting.

Everything you said, spit..etc..has NOT been proved

Video's taken at the Tea Party in DC (3 in all) show the "Rumors" are just that, Rumors started (Think DUKE RAPE CASE) and after viewing Video's of the incidents in question, obviously there were no "Shouted 15 times" and no spitting.

Put up or shut up, we need another "Duke" incident to prove that Liars get caught.

 So take your "yelling racial and homophobic slurs " to court, or quit spreading Rumors.  Unless no amount of video tape can change your lying eyes.

 

Get your head out of your....

You must be relying on your favorite fairly unbalanced "news" channel for bad information again.  Here is a video of Congressman Emanuel Cleaver being spat upon by a teabagging lowlife.  And here's another tea party "patriot" holding up a lovely (and incoherent) sign about slavery, taxation and "Niggars".

Now you can see the blatant racism for yourself, I'm sure you will just ignore the evidence because it doesn't jive with your ideology.  The same way wingnuts think climate change is a hoax and evolution is just a theory.

 

So, GOT no Sound...DO you ? Get your evidence to Court, OR

Go to Court big boy, if you believe you have evidence of a hate crime, or Shaddup.  

The Spit Video is no proof.......get real....sort of a delayed spit wipe by Cleaver don't you think ?   When you get spit on, you usually wipe it off right away, not wait 30 seconds and take 8 more steps and fake it.   

Go join your "Hate" group at Daily Kos, they were really pushing the DUKE Rape case big time.....Wrong on that one also. 

Daily KOS, Zero for TWO.   Three strikes and you're OUT.

After two solid weeks of shrieking "If there isn't a video

After two solid weeks of shrieking "If there isn't a video it didn't happen", now your line is "I've seen the video but it still didn't happen!"

Shorter Skip:  We're

Shorter Skip:  We're disappointed we haven't been able to goad the president into being more forthright in describing these 'patriots' as reactionary mobs, or giving them much acknowledgement at all.
