Gordon Hintz: You're A F**king Creep!

Remember Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon Hintz? You know, he got busted a couple of weeks ago patronizing the Heavenly Touch massage parlor?

He's back in the news today, after it was reported he remakred to fellow Rep. Michelle Litjens "You are f**king dead!" after the vote to approve Gov. Scott Walker's "Budget Repair" bill.

Well Gordon Hintz, you're a f**king creep! Only a liberal pansy-ass would threaten a woman because he's too much of a coward to say that to someone his own size and gender.

Tells alot abou why the only way he can be with a woman is to go to a whore.

Farewell Frank Buckles, Last Surviving WWI Vet

If you recall, at the beginning of the month, Frank Buckles celebrated his 110th birthday.

News came today that Buckles, the last surviving World War I veteran, died.
Frank Buckles, the last living U.S. World War I veteran, has died, a spokesman for his family said Sunday. He was 110.

Buckles "died peacefully in his home of natural causes" early Sunday morning, the family said in a statement sent to CNN late Sunday by spokesman David DeJonge.

Buckles marked his 110th birthday on February 1, but his family had earlier told CNN he had slowed considerably since last fall, according his daughter Susannah Buckles Flanagan, who lives at the family home near Charles Town, West Virginia.

Godspeed, sir. Thank you for your service.

Sacramento Union Thug LIES To Media About His Assault On Tea Party Member

As a follow up to the story from late last night about the assault by a union thug on a Tea Party member in Sacramento, Jane Jamison at Uncoverage has the following video of the thug lying to the local media, making it sound like the thug was defending himself.
We have in that report video (and there are more on YouTube) which clearly showed 28-year-old Teamster Richard Andazola as part of a “surge” of union members who left their assigned protest area, and crossed a street to confront Tea Party protesters. Andazola violently pushed Tea Party-er Rodney Stanhope, injuring his throat and hand. [ Stanhope went to the hospital for treatment. Chuck DeVore reports today he has a welt on his throat and bruised hand from the assault.]

Steve Kemp of Golden Gate Minutemen was at the rally videotaping. After the thug Andazola was cited for battery by Sacramento police, he gave an astounding “version” of what happened to a local television reporter.
Steve has the following video so you can compare the FACTS, with the SPIN of the lying union goon. This is what they do, folks.


Also check out the “civil discourse” of the big meathead with a bullhorn at the beginning of the tape and at the very, very end.
Here's another video:

Add Sexually Harassing Minors To The List Of Tactics Used By Union Thugs

In the last week, Democrat and liberal allied labor unions are getting away with assault, racism, anti-gay slurs, physical assaults on women, because they know the lapdogs in the media will cover for them.

Now you can add sexually harassing a minor to the list. This latest example of Union Thuggery happened yesterday in Jefferson City, MO, as a young 17 year old was passing out copies of the US Constitution.

And like all the other examples listed above in the lede, there is documented proof of the attack.

Video from P/Oed Patriot, via Gateway Pundit.
Patrick, a 17 year old high school student, wished to spread the word about Liberty and bravely decided to go to the Union side of the Capitol and distribute free copies of the Constitution.

Having already heard of the violent nature of some of the Union Thugs at the other rally, I lent him a "Black Box", a small hand held video camera, for his own safety. I'm lucky I did....

While several Union Members Thanked him for the document, others were not so pleased to see Patrick practicing Liberty Evangelism.

Several thugs asked him if he was paid by the Koch Brothers and some other "Dirty Old Man" seemed to want to demonstrate a little 'Tea Bagging' on him.

The Video below consists of joint footage from the "Black Box" and from the flip camera of Citizen Journalist, Adam Sharp, who came to Patrick's rescue (Not that he needed it).

The Date is not accurate on the "Black Box" video, this event took place on Feb 26th, 2011:

Richmond VA Pro Union Rally Flops

Virginia Right was in the State Capitol of Richmond today to cover the MorOn/Union rally.

It was a flop!



I almost felt bad for these poor saps that turned out for the Pro Union Rally in Richmond, Va today. There were around 250 people who showed up for this lame attempt at starting class warfare by the Liberal money bags like George Soros and his MoveOn.Org group – as well as the 45 other groups that helped organize this event. Perhaps if these groups had simply closed their offices and traveled down to Richmond the attendance would have been better.

The first thing that struck me right off the bat was the absence of African-Americans. Oh, there were a few, but it appears that the African-American community is better represented by the TEA Party movement than the Unions, judging by the turnout at each event. I am sure the liberal media will manage to overlook this omission.
Those kinds of facts are stubborn things for liberals.

Prof Jacobson at Legal Insurrection says the rallies have fallen short of their projected numbers.

More Union Thuggery: Tea Party Member Assaulted In Sacramento

On Tuesday, Massachusetts Democrat Mike Capuno said the following to union members at a rally:


"Every once in a while you gotta get out in the streets and get a little bloody when necessary."

Since he's uttered those words, a conservative female activist in Washington DC was assaulted by a union thug, another conservative was called a "bad Jew." Another union brute told a cameraman he'd "f**k you in the ass you faggot." Today, a black Tea Party member was told she was on the "Koch Plantation."

Now, in Sacramento, CA, a Tea Party member was assaulted and injured by another union thug.

Chuck DeVore writes about the attack at Big Government.
Sacramento’s ABC News 10 reported on the union rally and Tea Party counter rally in Sacramento today. ABC’s online report makes cursory mention of an incident of union violence directed at Tea Party activist Rodney Stanhope: “Police cited one man
for battery after he allegedly shoved a tea party supporter.”

I spoke to Stanhope, as he drove to the hospital for x-rays and treatment for the injuries sustained at the rally, and asked him what happened. Mr. Stanhope said that he was with a group of about 150 Tea Party activists across the street from the
MoveOn.org-organized union rally. A union man with a bullhorn, Richard Andazola, 28, was yelling across the street at the Tea Party activists, calling them “fascists.”



Then one of the Tea Party activists, also bullhorn equipped, replied, “We pay your salary!”



This enraged Andazola, who, according to Stanhope, rushed the Tea Partiers, chanting “Fascists go home! Fascists go home!” He violently shoved Stanhope twice, the second time apparently striking Stanhope in the throat:


Somehow in the melee, Stanhope’s hand was also injured

We will be posting more footage and further coverage once it becomes available.

Stay tuned for an in-depth write up from an eyewitness on the scene.

For all the alleged violence, racism and homophobia that the Tea Party movement has been accused of over the last couple of years (with no proof) we have, in one week, more documented video evidence of the Tea Party being the victims of violence, racism, and homophobia by Democrat allied union members.

But you won't find any mention of this on your cable news network.

MoveOn Member To Black Tea Partier "You're On Koch's Plantation"

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit was covering the dueling protests between the union supporting MoveOn.org liberals and the patriots of the St. Louis Tea Party when he got the following video of black Tea Party member Stephanie Rubach:

Rubach was told by one of the MorOns that she was "on Koch's Plantation," referring to the Koch Brothers.

As posted here, liberal supporting labor unions were in the Top 20 campaign donors for the 2010 campaign cycle. Koch Industries ranked number 83.

Jim also got a photo of this "classy" sign.


Speaking of classless, Gabriel Malor (h/t Sister Toldjah) who blogs at Ace of Spades, took this photo at a pro-union protest in DC Today.

I'm sure all this extremism and bigotry above, as well as the beating of conservative women, anti Semitic remarks, and anti-gay slurs, will lead tomorrow's Sunday shows.

Union Supporters In Wisconsin Disrespect War Memorial

Ann Althouse shot a video yesterday inside the Wisconsin State Capitol building where a War Memorial was used by the union protesters to tape up information and signs (video below, via FreeRepublic.).

At the beginning, some hippie doofus admits he knew it was a memorial, when he's asked by her husband.

The protesters have also played football inside the Capitol Building, as well as drug fueled "raves" with a sucky band.

Appearance Today On The Alana Burke Show

I had the pleasure of being a guest today on the Alana Burke Show, which is now being heard on Monday through Friday on KCNR 1460 in Redding/Mt. Shasta, CA.

Here's the link to the podcast.

Check out Alana's show, if you haven't. She's a great host.

Democrat-Supporting Labor Unions Lead Top 20 2010 Campaign Donations, Those "Evil" Koch Bros? Number 83 On List!

Facts are stubborn things, if you're a liberal union supporter out telling the world about how supposedly evil the Koch Brothers are.

OpenSecrets.com has a list of the top campaign donors from 1989-2010. Here's their top 20 for the 2010 campaign cycle (h/t Kim Hedum, via Twitter).


If so look closely, most of the top 20 campaign donors for the 2010 campaign season were gasp....labor unions supporting Democrats--SEIU, NEA, AFT, the CWA thugs, et al.

As for the Koch Brothers, who are now the favorite bogeymen of the Democrats and their Leftist allies?

They made number 83 on the list.

We'll just put the libs newest lie to bed.

More Union Thuggery From DC; Anti-Gay Slurs Yelled At Cameraman In Rhode Island--Media Silent

Here's some more footage of the union thugs who were bussed to the FreedomWorks offices yesterday, thanks to Julie Borowski of FreedomWorks.



You see NBC 4 reporters in the crowd, but did that footage, or the assault by union thugs against Tabitha Hale get mentioned? No.

Then, in Providence RI on Tuesday, a cameraman at a union rally was assaulted by another union thug, who yelled at him, at about 7:32 in the video below, "I'll f**k you in the ass you faggot!".

Women assaulted, anti-gay slurs yelled, ALL OF IT on video. But did you hear about that on CNN or MSNBC?

Now compare that to last March, when the Congressional Black Caucus made up the allegation they were called the "n-word" by Tea Party members, and it was repeated endlessly on CNN, MSNBC as though it was the gospel truth. Never mind all the video footage that day showed no racial slurs were uttered.

More Liberal Hate From DC Union Thugs: "Bad Jew" Yelled At Conservative; Tabitha Hale Responds On Assault

More evidence of liberal hate from the union thugs who descended on the offices of Freedomworks yesterday.

See the video below.

Yes....that was a liberal union member, calling a conservative a "bad Jew." And unlike the phony "n-word" allegation made by the Congressional Black Caucus, we have the proof.

Still, silence from the DC lapdog media, to their shame, defending their liberal comrades.

At RedState.com, Tabitha Hale writes about her assault by the thug from the CWA union.
I was taking pictures and video with my phone, and I heard my coworker getting into a heated exchange with one of the protesters. I turned on my iPhone camera and headed over to film it. They were going back and forth, the protester called my colleague a “little sh*t” just as I walked up, which is where the video starts. Then he noticed I was filming. Here’s what happened:

Basically, it’s ridiculous. I’m a 5′1 female in a dress, and he was standing up on a garden wall above me in the courtyard. He hardly felt threatened. I was stunned, because generally protesters are there to, you know, get their message out. They don’t normally shy away from the camera.

I’m very much okay, and very appreciative of the support from my fellow bloggers and activists today. I am, however, shaken up by the level of sheer hatred I experienced today. The look of fury on his face in the close up is appalling. I had not exchanged a word with him. He didn’t know who I was. He didn’t even know my name, what I do. He had probably surmised that I was with FreedomWorks and that was enough.

This just can’t be tolerated anymore. It’s one thing to be called a violent teabagger. It’s another to be called a violent teabagger while you’re being assaulted. They’ve been comparing themselves to the Egyptians ousting Mubarak. Looks like they’re not too far off, given that they share the tendency to assault women with cameras
What's worse, is that some of the people at the protest were blaming her for the assault.

So to you liberals and RINOs, (especially you, Democrat Mike "get bloody" Capuno) take your damn lectures about civility and stick it where the sun doesn't shine! I'm getting sick of this crap. It's silence at liberal bigotry and violence, but let some lone nut tries to kill a Congresswoman or flies an airplane into a building, there's endless attempts to connect these unrelated events to Tea Party members and opponents of the Obama Regime.

Obama Regime Seizes Judicial Power; Refuses To Defend Defense of Marriage Act

Showing complete disregard for his oath of office, Barack Hussein Obama has apparently instructed his InJustice Department to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act against court challenges (Rolling Stoned).

Of course, the liberal potheads at Rolling Stoned would applaud it as "principled," but Obama's decision is a complete violation of his oath of office. In a sense, he's said "drop dead" to the concept of "separation of powers" in our Constitution, and made himself the Supreme Court.

The hypocrisy of this decision is that liberals always attack or question conservative jurists on whether or not they can "separate their personal religious beliefs in defending laws they don't agree with." Liberals can never do that. They always govern based on their ideology. Witness Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown's refusal to defend Prop 8, even though the majority of Californians approved that ballot measure.

Gay Patriot summed it up astutely:
Should a President who both knowingly signs a law that is unconstitutional (Obamacare) AND who refuses to defend a law (DOMA) passed by Congress and signed by a President that he deems to be unconstitutional be charged with impeachment?

One Day After Democrat Congressman Tells Unions To "Get Bloody," Union Thug Assaults Female Conservative Activist In DC

Two weeks ago, I had the honor of meeting and working with Tabitha Hale of Freedomworks in the blogger's lounge at CPAC. I'd been aware of her activism since moving to DC, and had followed her writings at various blogs she's posted at. She did a superb job of running the blogger's lounge at CPAC.

I find out late this afternoon that Tabitha was assaulted by some union thug from the Communications Workers of America at a protest held in front of Freedomworks offices in Washington DC today.

Photo of the goon, and video below from Michelle Malkin.

Union Thug From Communication Workers of America



Is this what Rep. Mike Capuano, Democrat from Massachusetts, meant when he told unions they needed "get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary?"

And surprise of surprises, there has been NO, Zero, ZIP, nada, coverage of this by the local lapdog media outlets that I can find. I watched NBC 4 in DC and they showed film of the protest, but no mention of this assault. But you can bet your life savings that if it was even just alleged without proof that any Freedomworks employee (or tea party member) assaulted or uttered any racial or sexist slur towards a union member, it'd be repeated endlessly on all the networks and the Washington ComPost.

First of all, no real man hits a woman. People like this union prick are wussy thugs who wouldn't last a split second around someone their own size, before running down the street like a coward.

But where are all the voices of liberals who were self-righteously lecturing us about "civility" in the wake of the Tucson shooting last month? It's non-stop news when it's "targeting" a congressional district, or the phony allegation of racial slurs; but assault a female conservative activist, call for the lynching of Justice Clarence Thomas, or assaulting a black man at a Tea Party with fists and racial slurs and you hear the sound of crickets from these sanctimonious liberals.

Washington ComPost-Owned Slate.com Calls Sarah Palin "Cunt" In Headline

Kristinn Taylor, writing at Gateway Pundit, describes the latest misogynistic attack by the lapdog media on Sarah Palin.
Washington Post owned Slate.com used a crude misogynist wordplay to call Sarah Palin a c*** in a headline for an article published Tuesday about a supposed secret Sarah Palin Facebook account.

The headline reads: Sarah Palin Uses Alternate Facebook Accunt To Praise Sarah Palin


The article, posted in Slate’s “Slatest” section, is based on an article from Wonkette titled, Sarah Palin Has Secret ‘Lou Sarah’ Facebook Account To Praise Other Sarah Palin Facebook Account, that in a rare show of class for Wonkette does not use the sexist slur in the article.

Two commenters at Slatest criticized Slate for the slur with one writing, “I’ve let go of my reflexive typo pointing in the Slatest, but Facebook accunt? on a Sarah Palin’s tidbit, come on guys, at least get a basic spellcheck function.”

Given Slate’s prominence as a respected part of the mainstream media with professional standards to uphold, an innocent typo of this magnitude with this subject is highly unlikely.(For the benefit of Media Matters senior blogger Eric Boehlert, try to imagine Slate “accidentally” doing the same to Michelle Obama or Nancy Pelosi. It wouldn’t happen.)

During the 2008 presidential campaign, liberal activists paraded in public wearing t-shirts emblazoned in large lettering, “Sarah Palin is a c***” with the c-word fully spelled out.

The Slate article itself does not bear a timestamp, but the comments begin at 5:18 p.m., meaning the article with the offensive headline has been up for nearly four hours as of this writing.
The screenshot of the article I posted above was taken about 7:15 a.m. EDT, so this headline has been up now for FOURTEEN (14) hours.

Washington ComPost, you have some 'splainin' to do!


And to dismiss this is just a simple misspelling is to ignore the fact similar slurs have happened to conservative women/minorities before.

I Guess We Can End The "Mitch Daniels in 2012" Talk After His Cave-In To The Unions

Unlike Scott Walker in Wisconsin, Mitch Daniels appears to lack a spine in standing up to the Democrat flee-baggery and their unholy alliance with unions (American Thinker).
Today Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana dealt a serious blow to his chances for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, when he caved in to the walk-out by Democrats in the Indiana House over a controversial right-to-work bill. Beth Schneider writes in the Indianapolis Star:

Daniels told reporters this afternoon that he expects House Democrats will return to work if the bill dies. It would be unfortunate if other bills are caught up in the turmoil, he said.

He will not send out state police to corral the Democrats, the Republican governor said.

The Democrat minority has (the) right to express its views, he added.

Daniels is a fiscal hawk who has won national acclaim for the bang-up job he has done steering the Indiana economy out of the mire of the recession compounded by two previous terms of Democrat irresponsibility. The governor gave a controversial speech at the CPAC convention asking Republicans to "call a truce" on social issues while dealing with America's faltering economy.

Word to Mitch: the stifling effect of labor unions on the economy is not a social issue.

Daniels' unwillingness to stand on principle on issues important to social conservatives suggested that there might be a weak spot in the former Reagan Budget Director's resume. Daniels earned the sobriquet "Mitch the Knife" for his willingness to stand on economic principle while helping trim the fat out of the federal budget.

Apparently, Daniels now wants to be known as "Mitch the Nice." That won't work for me or any of the conservatives that I know. Now is the time to draw the proverbial line in the sand and act on the mandate provided conservatives in the 2010 mid-term elections. Reigning in union greed must be a top priority.
Well Mitch, what you're exhibiting is not the kind of leadership this conservative is looking for. Nice knowing you!

Rep. Allen West To CAIR Rep.: "Don't Blow Sunshine Up My Butt"

Video from The Shark Tank (CPAC Blogger of the Year), via Weasel Zippers.

At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use before telling Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt” with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”
I for one, am glad that this patriot is looking out for our nation in Congress.

Wisconsin Rep. Gordon Hintz Pulls A "Patches" Kennedy, Then Gets Busted At The "Heavenly Touch"

R. S. McCain posted this video of Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon Hintz, on the floor of the Wisconsin House, making the following "impassioned" floor speech.



Kinda reminded me of this guy:



Well, Rep. Hintz got himself into some trouble, after he was arrested for being a patron of the "Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor."
State Rep. Gordon Hintz, ticketed this month as part of an investigation into prostitution at an Appleton massage parlor, said Monday he would take responsibility for his actions.

"My concern right now is that my personal situation is distracting from the much more important issue facing our state," Hintz wrote in an e-mailed statement. "We have tens of thousands of working people at the Capitol every day, and that must remain our focus."

Hintz, a Democrat from Oshkosh, did not return phone messages left at his home and Capitol office.

Appleton police ticketed Hintz on Feb. 10 for touching/offering to touch sexual parts, according to online court records. Hintz posted $2,667.50 bail. His intake court date was set for April 27.

Appleton police have been cracking down on a massage parlor suspected of prostitution, the Appleton Post-Crescent has reported.
Shouldn't become a distraction? It seems like with Rep. Hintz, "affairs of state" distracted from "the affairs of state."

Have You Ever Belonged To A Union?

Donald Douglas at American Power has a great response to an Ezra Klein question - "Have you or anyone close to you belonged to a union?'

I never have. My father briefly was part of the Teamsters when the airline he worked for became unionized. I remember he didn't have any sympathy for the air traffic controllers (PATCO) who went on strike in 1981, with those who didn't return to work being fired by President Reagan. Even though he wasn't an air traffic controller, I remember him saying "I took an oath I wouldn't strike." Other than that, other members of my family have belonged to teachers unions. While the unions have given some teachers protection, there's a lot of "bad" that outweighs the good.

Sure, a union can prevent a wrongful firing, but what about firing for "incompetence" or not doing your job. Remember how it took an undercover TV crew to expose UAW autoworkers using their lunch breaks to smoke pot and drink booze? Had it not been for the expose, those workers would probably still have jobs.

I've glanced at a lot of the teacher's union magazines and you can tell the political influence and campaigning in them. The local teacher's union promoted the "One Communist Nation" rally, and I saw scores of AFT members, as well as other unions. All those buses, boxed lunches, etc, etc, were paid for with union dues. Couldn't that money be better spent on the workers they claimed to represent?

Then there's the unholy alliance between unions and the Democrat Party, which is something that needs to be broken up. Look at how Harry Reid got re-elected, when polls showed him losing the race. Don't tell me unions didn't play a role in that. This unholy alliance between unions and Democrats is how the union workers are held in much higher regard than those of us who are non-union. They've become another "special interest group" whom the liberals use for their own political gain.

Which comes to this question to those backing the unions: what about the sacrifices those of us who are non-union employees have made? Many of us, over the last couple of years, have had pay freezes, had to pay more in health care premiums, or had our employer temporarily cut contributions to our 401ks. We did that, because the alternative was perhaps not having a job to go to.

But ask the unions to sacrifice, and then this sense of entitlement crops up, even as they make more money and don't have to pay as much in benefits as non-union workers. I think a lot of Americans are finding their attitude offensive, and is rallying them against these protesters in Wisconsin. It certainly doesn't seem to help the President, who has cast his lot on the side of the unions who have supported him (and he's returned the favor, with Obamacare vouchers).

All I know is that there's probably a lot of non-union workers who'd love to have the jobs the union members aren't doing, because they're too busy protesting.

Can We Now Say The Excuse Of The DADT Policy In Keeping ROTC Off Campus Was B.S.?

The Left, especially on college campi has always hated the military, and showed this to be true in a disgraceful episode at Columbia University just the other night (Melanie Morgan).
It’s the most sickening and shocking display of anti-military hate that we’ve seen for a long time.

At a recent debate at Columbia about whether or not to allow ROTC back on campus, several ROTC students, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and current service members were viciously attacked their own fellow students!

Columbia University students heckled a war hero during a town-hall meeting on whether ROTC should be allowed back on campus.

"Racist!" some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran…

- New York Post 02 / 20 / 2011

We have heard the anti-war activists say it a thousand times. “We support the troops, but not the war.” We’ve also heard every liberal politician claim that they wouldn’t allow our current veterans to be mistreated the way Vietnam vets were. Obama called the treatment of Vietnam vets a “national disgrace…we resolve to never let it happen again,” he proclaimed at a speech in 2009.

But where is their commitment? Where is that support for our troops? Obviously the students of Columbia didn’t get the memo. We can’t just sit by and let our troops be mistreated like this. Is this the kind of America we want our brave troops overseas to return home to?

...Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gunfire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.

…Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.

José Robledo, 30, a Columbia student who commutes to Fordham University for ROTC coursework, said he found the treatment of Maschek abhorrent.

"The anti-ROTC side has been disrespectful and loud. They hiss and they jeer," he said. "It's been to the detriment of the argument."
Remember how the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy was used by these elitist institutions as an excuse to keep the military and ROTC programs off campus? Well, thanks to this despicable behavior at Columbia, now we can call bullshit on that excuse.

And what does it say about Columbia University that an Islamofascist dictator named Adolf Jr. Ahmadamnnutjob of Iran is given the opportunity to spew his hate there, while a member of our military, who has sacrificed his body for this nation, is mocked and jeered?

VIDEO: Anarchists & Socialists Hold Drug Fueled "Rave" At Wisconsin State Capitol; Rassmussen Poll Shows Support For Gov. Walker

Video from Naked Emperor News, via The Blaze:

Various anarchist and socialist groups were holding a "rave" in the Wisconsin State Capitol, and according to the photographer the smell of pot and alcohol was present.

Look at the trashing of the Capitol. Kinda reminds me of how these groups trashed The National Mall on their "One Communist Nation" rally in DC last October.

Oh, and by the way, your band sucks too!

Rassmussen Reports has released a poll showing that 48 percent of voters nationwide are supporting Governor Scott Brown, while 38 percent are siding with the unions.

I'd imagine these kind of antics aren't going to help support for the unions out very much.

Nice Deb also has more video of these protesters intimidating a Fox News crew, and instructions for filing a complaint against unethical doctors.

Liberal Racism Alert: Ohio Democrat Calls Black Man "Buckwheat" In Facebook Thread, Denies It Was Racist

Another example of liberal racism (Vindy.com; h/t GayPatriot from Twitter).
The Facebook discussion started between Hagan and Maggi Cook, of Southwest Ohio, regarding Wisconsin Senate Democrats not showing up at their Statehouse because of their governor’s attempts to remove collective bargaining rights and cut benefits for public workers.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has proposed similar cuts.

Hagan opposes the cuts.

Rachel Mullen Manias, a GOP activist from Broadview Heights, outside Cleveland; a man named Kevin Crowther and others joined the discussion.

The discussion continues, with Manias, Cook and Crowther, who is black, arguing for the need for cuts and Hagan against what’s been proposed.

Manias then wrote, “I’m guessing your (sic) from an entrenched area ripe with corruption. I don’t recognize your name as a Cuyahoga County resident, but I’m guessing you’re from the land of Traficant...”

Hagan responds that she’s not making sense. Two others comment and then Crowther returns to the discussion of public unions.


Then Hagan writes, “I ran against Traficant buckwheat ... so take your personal shots, and shove them where the sun don’t shine.”

Hagan said “buckwheat” is a term he’s been using since he was a kid and that it carries no racial connotation for him.

He said he wasn’t aware of the race of any of the people involved in the discussion and that his comment was directed at Manias, not Crowther.

Manias, who e-mailed the discussion to The Vindicator, believes the word is inappropriate in any case.

“I find it completely unacceptable that a career politician finds the word ‘Buckwheat’ to be socially acceptable and appropriate in any situation,” Manias said in an e-mail. “If my children used that racially offensive term towards anyone, I’d wash their mouths out with soap.”

Crowther of Liberty Township in Southwest Ohio, believes the term was directed at him.

“I was offended by that,” Crowther said.

...Hagan said it’s an attempt to make him look bad.

They are so full of ----,” he said. “They’re so negative, these teabaggers.”

He said that Republicans, as the ones who are cutting programs for the poor and rights for public employees, should be the ones defending themselves.
So look whose calling names, it's the liberal Democrat Hagan. He's not just interested in making racial slurs, he also has to use sexual slurs to describe Tea Party members.

Let me educate Mr. Hagan on the racial connotation of the "Buckwheat" slur. It came from the "Little Rascals/Our Gang" character, which, like Hollywood did a lot back in that time, depicted blacks as easily frightened, usually with their eyes bulging out.

Dan Rather used the term in 2001, in describing his bosses at See BS, but since he was a liberal, he was not punished for it.

Andrew Breitbart Is Ill With "Walker Pneumonia"

I'm sorry to see that Andrew Breitbart has been sticken with Walker Pneumonia, according to a "doctor" (read: quack) in Madison, Wisconsin yesterday.



I'd like to pass along my best wishes to Andrew for a speedy recovery, and hoping that these doctors and teachers involved in their little scheme get punished. From what I understand, what they did yesterday is in violation of the law.

Gov. Walker To AWOL Dems: "If You Want To Participate In Democracy, The Arena Is In Madison, WI; Not Rockford IL Or Chicago"

Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this morning and told the Senate Democrats that if they wanted to participate in the political process, they needed to do it in Madison, WI; not from a neighboring state. (h/t Midnight Blue via Twitter).



According to Kevin at LakeShoreLaments.com, via Twitter, an ABC reporter on ABC This Week this morning said "Obama was more forceful against Gov. Walker than he was against Iran or Mubarak."

These people didn't get paid or get time off to protest, unlike the union workers and other Leftists.

I've heard people mention this fact as well: these people are going to be paying for the child care because the schools are closed due to the teacher's unions little temper tantrum. You want to talk about pissing the citizens of the state off against the teacher's unions?

Standing With Gov. Walker in Wisconsin Today - Updates Below Est. 15,000 Show Up With 24 Hour Notice!!!

Thousands of Tea Party activists and other citizens came out to counter-protest the spoiled brat teachers and other public service union employees in Wisconsin. Here's a couple of images I found. The one at the bottom is a still shot from a LiveFeed camera.


“This is a message that is being sent around the country to other governors that the tea party is going to have their back,” he says. “This is a message that we are sending, and Wisconsin is sending, to Ohio, to California, to all the governors out there that are about to make hard decisions.”

Turning to the White House, Breitbart calls President Obama’s involvement in union activism “deeply un-American.”

“What you have is the president of the United States organizing anarchists, public-sector unions in order to intimidate Americans,” he says.
Michelle Malkin has more examples of liberal "civility" at this link.

UPDATES: Deekaman attended and commented below:

We are back. Safe and warm. We had no altercations even though we were around them nearly all day. OTOH, the signs they carried were what they accused us of carrying. Hateful.
Ann Althouse was there as well and has many photos and videos at her blog. She also got video of one of the doctors handing out "sick" notes for schoolteachers.


Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit was there and says about 15,000 people showed up...and that's with 24 hours notice!

New Tone: Astroturfing for Obama & (S)SEIU Threaten To "Bloody Teabaggers"

In our new era of civility liberals called for after the tragic shooting, Rebel Pundit, (h/t This Ain't Hell) found the following post on Craigslist.

OFA, of course, refers to Barack Hussein Obama's astroturf organization "Astroturfing for Obama" (otherwise known as Organizing for America), who has promoted the union protests against the budget cutting proposals by Republican Governor Scott Walker.

SEIU is the Obama supporting union whose members in St. Louis assaulted a black man, Kenneth Gladney, at a Tea Party and also called him a nigger.

They must be covering their tracks, because as I'm writing this, the comment has been flagged for removal.


Now imagine if this comment had been attributed to the Tea Party, and the media reaction that would follow.

Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection: Obama Acted Stupidly In Picking Sides Against The Taxpayers

Anarchists Who Planned Bombing Of 2008 GOP Convention Linked To Fire Bombing Of Texas Governor's Mansion

The Texas Governor's Mansion in Austin, home to every governor since 1856, was torched in June 2008 in what was suspected to be arson. Now, clues and enhanced video is linking suspects in the attack on the historic mansion to an attempted bombing of the 2008 Republican National Convention (Austin American-Statesman).
An Austin-based anarchist group whose members were prosecuted for plotting to bomb the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., three years ago has been linked to the unsolved June 2008 arson fire that gutted the Texas Governor's Mansion, officials said Thursday.

Steve McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, said that a white Jeep Cherokee photographed by surveillance cameras at the mansion four days before the fire has been "connected to people who were part of that anarchist group." The connection was confirmed about three months ago, he said.

The Jeep is believed to have been doing surveillance before the fire, McCraw said at a news conference called to ask for public assistance in cracking Texas' highest-profile unsolved crime.

Authorities said they have identified three people in the Jeep as "persons of interest" in the arson case and are seeking information that could identify a fourth person, the arsonist. They released three videos and a set of composite sketches — and reiterated the existence of a $50,000 reward — in the hopes of drawing out new information.

McCraw said at least one of the persons of interest 'has been placed in downtown Austin' the morning of the mansion fire.

He said one of the men arrested in the Minnesota case has been identified as a passenger in the Jeep.

All three persons of interest have denied any involvement in the burning of the mansion, authorities said.

Investigators believe a fourth person is the shadowy figure seen on video the night of the fire tossing a Molotov cocktail on the mansion's porch to start the fire, McCraw said.

On a second video made public Thursday, a shadowy figure can be seen walking up the front brick sidewalk to the mansion after hopping the front fence. He pauses and appears to light the Molotov cocktail, then throws it at the front door.

Flames can be seen quickly engulfing the mansion's door and porch, as the figure runs back down the sidewalk.

Antonio "Tony" Leal, chief of the Texas Rangers that are leading the investigation of the fire, described the arsonist as about 5 feet 10 inches tall, of medium build, weighing 175 to 180 pounds and wearing "lumpy" clothing.

McCraw said investigators believe the arsonist "was not in the Jeep." And though authorities have not confirmed the identity of the arsonist, they believe he is connected to the people taking photos from the Jeep, according to McCraw.

...Two Austin men accused of building a cache of homemade firebombs were arrested in St. Paul during the 2008 Republican National Convention. Authorities said the men intended to use the Molotov cocktails on police vehicles and perhaps even police officers, but their plot was stopped with the help of Austin-area activist turned government informant Brandon Darby.


Texas' Governor is a Republican, Rick Perry, who has held the office since George W. Bush resigned after being elected President in 2000.

No word if Janet Incompitano of the Department of Homeland Security is teaming up with the Southern Poverty Law Center to look at left-wing homegrown terrorism.

GOProud Booted From Next Year's CPAC; Ron Paul Warned As Well

Donald Douglas at American Power is reporting that the new head of the American Conservative Union (who puts on the annual CPAC) Al Cardenas is stating that the ACU will be screening groups who sponsor the event.

Cardenas said:
"It's got nothing to do with your orientation. It's got to do with the principles that you advocate. There are a number of gays in America who don't advocate gays in the military issue or gay marriage. And so they'll fit within the tent of what we stand for...It's not that easy. It's complicated. But we'll do our best to be inclusive while at the same time adhering to the principles that Ronald Reagan dreamed about and we've been following."

Warner Todd Huston also reports that Cardenas is putting Ron Paul on notice, after the rude behavior of his supporters seen on Thursday towards Donald Trump, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.

If it's time to screen groups who may be pushing other agendas besides conservatism, let's ditch the John Birch Society and Muslim Brotherhood apologists as well.

Comedian Who Makes Career Off Racial Slurs Plays Race Card on Tea Party

Speaking of lack of civility, another celebrity idiot named Chris Rock has gone off to another magazine to show the rest of us how much about the Tea Party he doesn't know, including a dose of the race card (USA Today).
Comedian Chris Rock slams the Tea Party in an Esquire magazine interview, comparing the small-government, anti-tax movement to little children who wear themselves out right before bedtime.

"When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism's almost over. Because this is the last -- this is the act up before the sleep. They're going crazy. They're insane. You want to get rid of them -- and the next thing you know, they're
f------ knocked out," Rock said.
It's all racism, right Chris? Coming from a comedian who makes money using racial slurs and racist jokes.

Obama Astroturfers Behind Uncivil Protests In Wisconsin; Counter Protest Planned for Saturday

So much for "civility," as Politico reports the loud protests by union members in Wisconsin is being organized by Astroturfing for Obama.
The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America arm -- the remnant of the 2008 Obama campaign -- is playing an active role in organizing protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's attempt to strip most public employees of collective bargaining rights.


...OfA Wisconsin's field efforts include filling buses and building turnout for the rallies this week in Madison, organizing 15 rapid response phone banks urging supporters to call their state legislators, and working on planning and producing rallies, a Democratic Party official in Washington said.
So this is the "new tone" from Democrats and the Obama Regime after the Tucson tragedy--throw the Nazi, Mubarak and Mussolini card out against a Republican Governor? What about all those people who don't have jobs, or have to pay more out of their income for health care? Yet these union leaders act like spoiled children who are told they can't have ice cream after dinner for one night.

Here's some photos which Doug Ross gathered of some of the hate being ginned up by Obama's Astroturfing machine.



Now, what was that you liberals were saying about "civility?"

Michelle Malkin writes tonight that supporters of Governor Walker are planning a counter protest on Saturday. She also has video of one citizen confronting a couple of Democrat legislators who fled the state.

While Johnny Spann's Children Grow Up Without Their Father, Traitor John Walker Lindh Goes To College

Johnny Michael Spann was killed during a prison uprising in Afghanistan, becoming the first casualty of the War on Terror in November 2001. He is survived by two daughters and a young son.

One of the last people Spann had contact with before his death was a young American from Marin County California, John Walker Lindh, a Muslim convert who had been captured in the fighting. It is possible that Lindh knew of the planned uprising and did not tell Spann.

While Johnny Spann's children grow up without their father, Lindh the traitor who trained in an al-Queda camp and allegedly met Osama bin Laden, is taking college courses in prison, according to his permissive father (AP).

Frank Lindh told students at the University of San Francisco School of Law on Wednesday that his son, now 30, spends his days studying ancient Islamic texts and is earning a liberal arts degree at Indiana University.

"He's a very calm and centered person," Frank Lindh said of his son. "He's very spiritual. He does his daily prayers. He's an observant Muslim. We talk heart to heart a lot."

John Walker Lindh is being held in special unit of a Terre Haute, Ind., federal prison that holds mostly Muslim inmates whose communications with the outside world are restricted.

Rights groups have criticized the unit as discriminatory. The Bureau of Prisons says the units are intended to house those for whom outside contact poses a heightened security risk but who don't need to be placed in the federal SuperMax prison in Florence, Colo.

...The younger Lindh is a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit against the prison bureau seeking permission to hold daily prayer groups in the cell block. Lindh and a fellow inmate claim the prison's policy restricting group prayer in the Communications Management Unit violates their religious rights.

Frank Lindh's appearance at the school is a part of his long-running campaign to clear his son's name of what he calls false accusations leveled by government officials and the media claiming his son was a terrorist.

Lindh contends his son was serving with the Taliban only to protect civilians who were being victimized by the Northern Alliance, who were fighting a civil war to topple the Taliban government and who became U.S. allies following the invasion of
Afghanistan after the Sept. 11 attacks.


Of course, Lindh was also delusional enough to call his treasonous son "a great American" after his 2002 plea deal.

Frank Lindh shows again the selfish "me first" attitude of a Marin County liberal. He cares more about his traitor son than the family of a fallen American hero whom his son did not help.

Mexican Military Suspected of Incursion On South Texas Border

What appears to have been a Mexican military truck with about a dozen men on board entered the Anzalduas International Bridge near Mission, TX, on the Texas and Mexico border (KRGV - TV 5, h/t The Blogmocracy).


CHANNEL 5 NEWS is exposing what appears to be a Mexican military incursion into the United States. It was all caught on camera. We froze surveillance video taken at the Anzalduas International Bridge.

What you see is the international boundary that separates the United States from Mexico and what authorities on this side of the border seem to think is a truck packed with armed men crossing into the United States. The video clearly shows a large military-transport vehicle drive north on the Anzalduas bridge over the international boundary.

We counted at least a dozen armed men in the back of the truck. The vehicle travels down the bridge toward the U.S. Customs checkpoint. Its driver makes a U-turn just before reaching the lines of cars there. It then starts back south toward Mexico. The men pull over and search a vehicle for a few minutes then resume their trek south. The presumed soldiers then cross back over the boundary toward Mexico.

They are in U.S. territory for about 10 minutes. We're taking a closer look at the vehicle they stopped on the bridge and what U.S. authorities have to say about this apparent incursion.

Go to the link and watch the video, which I'm unable to embed.

This isn't the first time the Mexican military has been suspected of entering South Texas. Last year, Mexican Marine helicopters were photographed flying around Starr County, TX which is the county bordering the west of the Mission/McAllen area.

Channel 5 reported on this in March of last year.

Having many family and friends who live in the area, they've told me of these sightings as well.

No word yet from the State Department, or Homeland Security, Mexico is denying this was their military who crossed into the US.

Bay Area Democrat Political Consultants Attempting Blackmail Of Darrell Issa

Anyone who has been following the Obama Regime for the last couple of years knows there's been a lot of fishy deals going down the pike. So, is it any wonder that Democrat political consultants connected to Hillary, Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer, are making an attempt to derail the investigation by Congressman Darrell Issa by making Issa a target (Joe Garofoli - SFGate).
SoCal's own Rep. Darrell Issa is known as "chief Congressional tormentor" of the Obama Administration. And, as chair of the House Oversight and Government reform Committee he can torment -- i.e. investigate -- with a lot more freedom, now that he's backed by a GOP-led House.

Now some of San Francisco's finest bare-knuckled political consultants are pushing back. The crew at SCN Strategies has started a group called Third Lantern -- check the Paul Revere reference here -- that is aimed at tormenting the tormentor. Its name: The Issa Files.

How good are these tormentors? They started the anti-Meg Whitman snowball rolling with their oppo research/bash crew called Level the Playing Field 2010. They're led by the Doctor of Death of Opposition Research (h/t Comrade Marinucci) Ace Smith, who charted Hillary Clinton's prez campaign and Jerry Brown's AG runs; Dan Newman, who helped fend off Carly Fiorina for Sen. Barbara Boxer and who believes the arc of marijuana reform bends toward justice; and Sean Clegg, who was also a mastermind behind Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's winning Lite Guv campaign and the Level the Playing Field throw-down. Ex-Boxerite Jeff Millman will be working it from LA.

SCN's biggest accomplishment, perhaps: They won a Chronnie last fall for their poltiical beat-downs.

And they say they have stuff that hasn't been reported by The Chronicle back in 2003 when Issa was running for Guv or that was recently reheated by The New Yorker.
So there must be something to all these investigations, especially if all these Democrat hacks can do is personally attack Issa, instead of refuting him.

If I were the Congressman, I'd put an end to these Nixonian tactics from these libs by charging them with blackmail.

Gitmo Prisoner Resolution Voted Down In Berkeley, CA; Code Pinko Organizer Offers Terrorists Her Spare Bedroom

The Berkeley CA (aka Commietown) City Council voted down a resolution which would have invited a couple of terrorist detainees formerly held at Guantanamo Bay Detention Center to live in their socialist hellhole (KSWT).
The resolution would have asked Congress to allow Guantanamo prisoners who have been cleared of wrongdoing to resettle in the U.S. - and invited "one or two" of them to live in Berkeley.

The measure lost in a 4-1 vote, with four abstentions, late Tuesday.

At least two other U.S. cities - Amherst and Leverett in Massachusetts - have approved similar resolutions aimed at clearing the way for Guantanamo detainees to come the U.S. after their release from the American detention facility in Cuba.

...City Manager Phil Kamlarz recommended that the council take no action, saying "federal law explicitly prohibits the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to the United States."

Councilman Gordon Wozniak, who voted against the resolution, said the resolution is an empty gesture that takes attention away from more pressing issues facing the city.

"I think it distracts the council from the local business that we actually have control over," Wozniak said.

Danny Gonzales, of the group Move America Forward, told the council he opposed bringing Guantanamo detainees to Berkeley.

"Just because they haven't been charged and convicted of a crime doesn't mean they're innocent," he said. "It's dangerous. Don't bring them here."

The resolution singled out two Guantanamo detainees who have been cleared of wrongdoing, but don't want to return to their home countries because they fear persecution - Ravil Mingazov, a Russian ballet dancer, and Djamel Ameziane, an Algerian chef.
Then, stupidity took over.
Separately, the city council approved a resolution that calls for the "immediate end to the cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment" of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of leaking classified government documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

The measure asked the U.S. government to improve the pretrial confinement conditions of Manning, who is being held in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Virginia.
Fixing the supposedly "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment" of Manning is easy. Just get a rope.

UPDATE: Over at FreeRepublic, I found a link to the following Examiner article where Holly Harwood, an organizer for Code Pinko in California, has offered the terrorists her spare bedroom.
Harwood, who appeared on Hannity, represents a point of view that is shared by many liberals in the US, and it also demonstrates the anti-Americanism and danger inherent in the mindset of these…people. What’s significant about Harwood’s stance is not just the innate fanaticism in her wacko and stubborn belief that freed Gitmo terrorists are just misunderstood-but-really-alright guys. It’s also significant because liberals like Harwood are basically aiding and abetting the terrorist enemy, no matter if they have been theoretically “cleared” of all wrongdoing when they are freed from Gitmo. In any case, just because these terrorists are freed from Gitmo—as some have been both under Bush and Obama—does not make them a bunch of harmless pussycats who you want in your spare bedroom (or dating any of your cousins, for that matter!).

Here's the Hannity piece from last night



Code Pinko hates the Marines in Berekeley, CA, but loves the terrorists--says alot.

Tampa Radio Host Tells Ron Reagan He'll Buy His Book When He Needs Extra Toilet Paper

Ron Prescott, known in the media as Ron Reagan (aka Ballerina Boy), got an earful from a Tampa talk show host named Tedd Webb for his book where he made allegations his father, Ronald Reagan, had Alzheimer's disease while in the White House (Washington Whispers, h/t Mark Williams).
If Ron Reagan’s book tour to pitch My Father At 100 has taught him one thing, it’s that talk radio probably isn’t his calling, despite being a former host on lefty Air America. “I’m not a yeller. There’s a lot of that going on,” he says, citing an interview with WFLA in Tampa on a show hosted by Jack Harris and Tedd Webb (which also features Whispers on Mondays). “Within one minute of getting me on the air,” recalls Reagan, “Tedd had called me an asshole, threatened to kick my ass, and told me that he, no, hadn’t bought my book and wasn’t going to unless he needed something extra to wipe his ass with.” All true and Webb isn’t backing down, telling us: “Reagan Jr. has gotten away with being insulting to his father’s memory for a while. No big deal. I told him what millions have wanted to tell him for quite some time.”
Here's the audio of the exchange.

That's just about what I'd have told the dancer if he were standing in front of me.

Report States Obama Appointed Muslim Brotherhood To Key Posts

Does this explain the Obama Regime siding with the supposed "freedom" movement in Egypt? (The Examiner)
An ex-CIA agent and counter-intelligence expert has revealed in a special report that Barack Obama has quietly appointed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to key posts within the Administration. Dr. Clare Lopez, professor at the Centre for
Counterintelligence and Security Studies, wrote a policy paper in December of 2009 which details the systematic appointment of Sharia-friendly advocates within the State Department and other government agencies.



For example, the Tehran-born Dr. Vali Nasr was appointed to co-direct Obama foreign policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan. Former Saudi Arabian supplicant Charles Freeman was appointed by Obama to chair the Administration's National Intelligence Council, but withdrew his name when it was revealed he issued a 2-page screed in which he postulated a conspiracy theory claiming he had been 'victimized' by American supporters of Israel. In addition, John Limbert was appointed to direct U.S. policy toward the Islamist regime in Iran. Limbert, who was taken hostage during the Iranian upheaval of the late 70s-early 80s, is an Iranian sympathizer who advocates negotiation with one of the most brutal dictatorships in the world.
I guess that also explains why Obama was, as Ann Coulter said over the weekend, eating ice cream instead of standing with the freedom marchers two years ago in Iran.

Liberal Bigotry 101: Herman Cain Described By AlterNet As "Monkey In The Window," Lib Wishes Ann Coulter Death In YouTube Comments

While clicking back to a link from The Lonely Conservative, I found she had posted another example of Left-wing bigotry--this time, it's a outright racist attack towards black conservative Hermain Cain on AlterNet.com.

In the immortal words of Megatron in Transformers: The Movie, Herman Cain’s speech at CPAC really is bad comedy. As you know, I find black garbage pail kids black conservatives fascinating not because of what they believe, but rather because of how they entertain and perform for their White Conservative masters.

When race minstrelsy was America’s most popular form of mass entertainment, black actors would often have to pretend to be white men, who then in turn would put on the cork to play the role of the “black” coon, Sambo, or Jumping Jim Crow. Adding insult to injury, in a truly perverse and twisted example of the power of American white supremacy black vaudevillians would often pretend to be white in order to denigrate black people for the pleasures of the white gaze.

Herman Cain–an ironic name if ever, and one more suited to a tragic figure in a Harlem Renaissance era novella–is not “blackening twice” as some race minstrels chose to do.

The writer ends with the following....

We always need a monkey in the window, for he/she reminds us of our humanity while simultaneously reinforcing a sense of our own superiority. Sadly, there are always folks who are willing to play that role because it pays so well.

Now can you imagine the endless outrage if any conservative had referred to Barack Hussein Obama or any member of the Congressional Black Caucus as a "monkey in a window?" Liberals would be all over the news outlets pointing just how allegedly "racist" conservatives are.

Which reminds me, here's the most recent comment on one of the videos I shot at CPAC of Ann Coulter's speech, which is an example of the "new tone" liberals lectured us about after the Tucson Tragedy.
