Oklahoma Democrat Wants Christian Businesses To Identify Themselves With Notices In Windows
I'm sure the last group to try this thought they were justified as well...
Oklahoma Democratic state Rep. Emily Virgin wants Christian businesses to post a public notice of discrimination if they intend to claim that they have a religious right to refuse service to LGBT people.
State Rep. Chuck Strohm (R) introduced a bill, the Oklahoma Religious Freedom Act, earlier this year that would allow businesses like wedding cake bakers and photographers to deny services if it was "against the person's religious beliefs." [...]
The amendment to HB1371 introduced by Virgin on Tuesday would require religious businesses to come out of the closet.
Virgin is proud of her original idea, and so are many of her followers.
The last time fascists tried this, it worked out so well for the business owners.

Commercial Deemed Too Political To Air
The simple, 30-second commercial was all set to run during CBS Sports' broadcast of the Wrangler Champions Challenge rodeo.
"We just thought it's around Sept. 11, Patriot Day, and rodeo is as patriotic a sport as it comes," Dave Retter told the Tri-City Herald. "We've had so many positive responses, we felt it would be fun to run something positive."
Retter, the owner of a real estate company in eastern Washington, also wanted to add a little local flavor as part of CBS Sports' rodeo broadcast, which was going to air all the action from the Horse Heaven Round-Up at a fair in nearby Kennewick.
Then the fair director got an email from CBS Sports rejecting the commercial because of its "political nature," the Herald reported.
Here's the commercial CBS thought was too political:

MSM: Activating Smear Campaign
The liberal media is beginning a smear campaign against a potential Republican Presidential candidate. If he had a "D" after his name, the media would be questioning the legitimacy of his indictment.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted Friday for allegedly abusing his veto power during a dispute with a public corruption prosecutor over her drunken driving arrest -- in a case that could mar the potential 2016 presidential candidate's political prospects.
Perry, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, is the first Texas governor to be indicted in nearly a century.
The indictment came down late Friday, after a special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit, which is run by Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg's office.
The governor wanted Lehmberg, a Democrat, to resign after she was arrested and pleaded guilty to drunken driving in April 2013. When she refused, Perry vetoed the money.
Video of Lehmberg being booked:
This drunken cow is not only a Travis County District Attorney, she is also head of the Public Integrity Unit.
Governor Perry's crime? He threatened to veto funding for the Public Integrity Unit unless Lehmberg resigned. Even if Perry is found innocent of any wrong-doing, Democrats will use this indictment to smear him, and low-information voters will believe every word.
Updates below the fold.
UPDATE (Thanks, faboutlaws): Perry responds:
"As governor, I took an oath to faithfully uphold the constitution of Texas, a pledge that I have kept every day as I've worked on behalf of Texans for the last 14 years. This same constitution clearly outlines the authority of any governor to veto items at his or her discretion. Just as I have following every legislative session during my service as governor, I exercised this authority to veto funding for an office whose leadership had lost the public's confidence by acting inappropriately and unethically.
"I wholeheartedly and unequivocally stand behind my veto, and will continue to defend this lawful action of my executive authority as governor. We don't settle political differences with indictments in this country. It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state's constitution.
"This indictment amounts to nothing more than an abuse of power and I cannot, and will not, allow that to happen. I intend to fight against those who would erode our state's constitution and laws purely for political purposes, and I intend to win. I will explore every legal avenue to expedite this matter and bring it to a swift conclusion. I am confident we will ultimately prevail, that this farce of a prosecution will be revealed for what it is, and that those responsible will be held to account."
More videos of Rosemary Lehmberg's drunk driving arrest:
Like a good Democrat, she plays the 'victim' card:
Off to jail!
BTW, Lehmberg received full salary while she was serving her jail sentence. That doesn't sound very harsh to me. It must be nice to have such a job.
Lehmberg is also currently being sued for firing a prosecutor who refused to illegally sabotage the investigation of an Austin police detective.
This is the head of the Public Integrity Unit? I do not think 'integrity' means what Democrats think it means.

Belgium: Doctor Refuses To Treat Jewish Woman
This is what it's coming to. Today, they refuse to treat Jews. Tomorrow, maybe Zionists.
A Flemish doctor Wednesday night on the telephone manned as a duty of physicians refused to provide medical help to a 90-year-old Jewish woman who had suffered a rib fracture. "I will not come! Send her to Gaza for a few hours, then she will not feel pain anymore," was the reply. The doctor said shortly after the story became known that this was done in an "emotional frenzy." The Health Department is investigating the matter. [...]
The doctor admitted the facts and said that this was in "a fit of emotion." Markowitz explained all this to the the head of the Department of Health for the Antwerp region, while the grandson of the 90-year-old woman, Hershy Taffel, registered a complaint with the police for racism and xenophobia.
At least he simply refused to treat her. Imagine the harm he could have caused by mistreating her instead.

Kerry's Ceasefire Proposal Exposed: Full Surrender To Hamas
John Kerry's ceasefire proposal as presented to Israel would have fully capitulated to Hamas' demands:
The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry's cease fire proposal represented a "complete cave-in" to Hamas's demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel.
The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was "stunned" and "absolutely horrified" that Kerry's ceasefire proposal, which contained no demand that Hamas dismantle or destroy its terror tunnel network. It demanded that both Israel and Egypt open their border crossings with Gaza, from where all the devastating weapons of war were initially imported. Furthermore, the Kerry plan did not simply call for Hamas to be allowed to build a seaport on its Mediterranean coast; but that Israel and Egypt should help pay for it. [...]
Israel's multi-party security cabinet was so taken aback by the pro-Hamas scope of the Kerry proposal, they initially refused to believe they were real. "It must be a misunderstanding," the source told Channel 2.

Vox Idiocy: Israel Doesn't Have To Defend Itself Against Terrorists
...they just do because they are big meanies!
Wow, the dumbassery is strong with this one:
A United Nations agency dedicated to helping Palestinians discovered 20 rockets hidden in one of its Gaza Strip schools on Wednesday, according to an alarmed press release from the agency. Palestinian militant groups such as Hamas dominate Gaza and use rockets as a tool to terrorize nearby Israelis. [...]
It is not a great secret that "resistance" campaigns by groups like Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad bring far greater harm to Palestinian civilians than they do anything resembling liberation, but this incident is a small glimpse of how, and of the effects of militant groups firing hundreds of rockets into Israel from densely populated neighborhoods in Gaza.
Here's the thing, though: while incidents like this force Israel to decide between bombing civilian structures or allowing Hamas to use those structures as rocket storage depots, it does not actually force Israel to choose to bomb civilian buildings. It is entirely within Israel's power to not bomb civilian buildings.
In other words, Vox admits Hamas is terrorists, but that is no excuse for Israel to defend itself against them.
Can someone really be this stupid and still tweet?
(Un)Related: More pointless idiocy from Vox -
There's a particularly sobering statistic that emphasizes the magnitude of this tragedy: with the reported death count now including 189 passengers from the Netherlands, the MH17 crash has claimed the lives of a greater share of the country's population than the September 11th attacks did in the US.
The people lost onboard MH17 represent approximately .0011 percent of the total Dutch population of 16.8 million.
Many more Americans were killed in the 9/11 attacks -- 2,624 in total -- but because the US population is so much larger (it was roughly 285 million in 2001), the death toll represented .0009 percent of the overall population.
Oh well then! That certainly puts 9/11 in perspective! It really wasn't such a huge attack after all! /s

Michelle Obama Asks High School Students To Police Racist Family Members
I'm sure Natasha and Malia are discussing it with their parents right now...
The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism. [...]
"Maybe that starts simply in your own family, when grandpa tells that off-colored joke at Thanksgiving, or you've got an aunt [that] talks about 'those people,'" she said. "Well, you can politely inform them that they're talking about your friends.
"Or maybe it's when you go off to college and you decide to join a sorority or fraternity, and you ask the question, how can we get more diversity in our next pledge class?" she added. "Or maybe it's years from now, when you're on the job and you're the one who asks, do we really have all the voices and viewpoints we need at this table?"

'Culling' Tornadoes Create Twitter Avalanche
As many of you may already know, tornadoes across the south have killed at least a dozen people, with more casualties expected.
For most of us, such news bring sympathy for the victims and the desire to help in any way we can. But for some on the 'tolerant' left, it is a source for amusement and humor:
I like to think of tornadoes in the south as "culling the herd"— Jenny from the block (@MNMusicBitch) April 28, 2014
The interesting thing about the tweet above is that it came from a supervisor at Goodwill Easter Seals of Minnesota. Her name is Jeannette Madden (aka Chapman). Her public profiles are at linkedin and facebook.
It's very sad that, even as a supervisor for a charitable organization, this woman can find no compassion for those suffering through a deadly, natural disaster. She is so politically biased and so filled with hate, her initial response to a disaster is to mock the victims solely because the states in which they live lean opposite to her own political beliefs. That she would praise the deaths of ideological "opponents" - even children - confirms a disturbing trend of leftist hatred and intolerance.
I'm sure not all who identify with liberal thought are as insensitive and vile as this woman. Many on the right and the left respond to disasters in the same way - by putting aside differences and seeking to help those in need. But just as we demand Muslims to speak out and condemn Islamic terrorists, we also need the influential on the left to speak out against such disgusting bigotry coming from among their ranks.

Regardless of how you feel about the Confederate flag, what it boils down to is this: two students carry a piece of cloth in exercise of their first amendment rights and the school praises minority students for not resorting to violence.
SOUTH HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Two Long Island high school students have been suspended for allegedly bringing a Confederate flag to school.
Brother Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony's High School in South Huntington, said the two seniors walked in with a Confederate flag draped around their shoulders during an after-hours sporting event at the school.
As CBS 2′s Kathryn Brown reported, there is outrage and disgust on Long Island.
"The African-American students who immediately saw it really exercised heroic restraint and fortunately a teacher immediately confiscated the flag and took the students out of the gym," Cregan said.
This is indicative of what is wrong with today's educational system. In this one incident, the school administration displays its ignorance, its political correctness, its intolerance, and its double standard for acceptable violence.
Frankly, African Americans should be offended more by the principal's comments about 'heroic restraint.' Is he suggesting blacks are more prone to violence so it takes some grand effort just to behave civilly?
That's sounds horribly racist if you ask me, even more so than carrying a Confederate flag. Really, which is more 'heroic' - restraining from committing violence against someone displaying something you don't like, or carrying a harmless, albeit controversial, symbol in such a hostile environment?

Oakland Unified School District Lesson Plan To Equate Convicted Cop-Killer To Martin Luther King, Jr
Leftist darling Mumia Abu-Jamal killed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner during a traffic stop in 1981. Faulkner had stopped Abu-Jamal's brother while Abu-Jamal approached the scene on foot. The Black Panther militant was found at the crime scene having been wounded by the young officer who returned fire in self defense.
The weapon used to kill Faulkner was found beside Abu-Jamal. He was wearing a shoulder holster for the weapon. Four witnesses saw Abu-Jamal cross the road toward Falkner and shoot him. Two witnesses at the hospital where Abu-Jamal was being treated heard him confess to shooting Faulkner.
A jury unanimously found Abu-Jamal guilty after only three hours of deliberations.
The Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) now has a lesson plan asking students to compare parallels between Mumia Abu-Jamal and Martin Luther King, Jr. The plan suggests Abu-Jamal was being targeted by the US Government and falsely accused of the crime that sent him to death row. (The death sentence was later dropped and, during an appeal, Abu-Jamal was re-sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.)
The lesson plan, which was authored by teacher Craig Gordon for 11th-graders within the 37,000-student district, suggests to "critically examine a possible parallel" between King and "someone else many believe is currently targeted by the U.S. government, Mumia Abu-Jamal."
It also asks students to consider the following statement: "The media, prison system and law enforcement organizations have censored Mumia Abu-Jamal. On one hand, there have been occasional stories in print and broadcast media about Mumia Abu-Jamal. On the other, despite the widespread support for Abu-Jamal that has made his case the most renown and controversial of death penalty cases in the world today, these stories are extremely rare and always refer to him as a 'convicted cop-killer.'"
California is teaching children that a violent cop-killer is no worse than a peaceful civil rights activist. For shame.

White House Spokesman: 'Freedom' Is Just A Buzzword
So, those things about freeing the slaves and ending the holocaust were just overblown reactions to a buzzword?
Reacting to a report that says Obamacare will lower work hours because it lowers the hourly threshold an American must work in order to obtain health care, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called "freedom" a "buzzword" on Tuesday.
"It's not anything but an added choice that they have that allows them more freedom, to use a certain buzzword, more choice," he said.
A cut in hours will
force give people the freedom to choose whether to work harder for Obamacare or starve to death:
Jason Furman, Obama's chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, told the press in the same session that American workers choosing to work less was a net positive, comparing them to 95-year-olds on Social Security.
"This is a choice on the part of workers, and I have no doubt that if, for example, we got rid of Social Security and Medicare, there are many 95-year-olds that would choose to work more to avoid potentially starving or to give themselves an opportunity to get healthcare," he said.

"Knockout" Thug Charged With Hate Crime
One of these "knockout" cowards get charged with a federal hate crime. We've seen dozens of videos of young black thugs hitting unsuspecting white victims, sometimes fatally.
So what makes this case unique?
In this case, the thug is white and the victim is black. That makes this a hate crime, while the others, apparently, are not to this Administration.
Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the "knockout game," accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack.
Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. [...]
According to Justice officials, Mr. Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79-year-old man, laughing and saying "Knockout" as he runs away.
The 79-year-old man had his jaw broken in the Nov. 24 attack.
"The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?" Mr. Barrett says in the video, according to the authorities.
Didn't count on additional federal charges, did you, Conrad?
Barret got what he deserved. But so should every other coward who plays this despicable game.

Another leftist utopia with remaining morality crumbling to the ground.

Gilbert Estrada, 51, later died. The video posted on YouTube shows him lying unresponsive after the fire was extinguished. Detectives say it appears Estrada may have accidentally started the fire while trying to light a cigarette.
As Estrada flails, some bystanders can be heard cheering. Others help put out the flames. One bystander recorded the scene with a cellphone camera and posted it on the video website.
Leftism is becoming a plague on society. Anywhere the leftist ideology dominates, you find high crime, decaying cities, extreme poverty, and a lack of any human decency or morality.

Report Your Co-Workers
Der Führer President Obama is ordering Federal workers to spy on each other under threat of penalties (emphasis mine):
WASHINGTON -- In an initiative aimed at rooting out future leakers and other security violators, President Barack Obama has ordered federal employees to report suspicious actions of their colleagues based on behavioral profiling techniques that are not scientifically proven to work, according to experts and government documents.
The techniques are a key pillar of the Insider Threat Program, an unprecedented government-wide crackdown under which millions of federal bureaucrats and contractors must watch out for "high-risk persons or behaviors" among co-workers. Those who fail to report them could face penalties, including criminal charges. [...]
The order covers virtually every federal department and agency, including the Peace Corps, the Department of Education and others not directly involved in national security.

According to McDermott, the "ad featuring sixteen photos of wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but it encourages racial and religious profiling."

If I Weren't A Better Person, I'd Blame The Hot Air Coming Out Of Rhode Island
But I am not a Democrat.
On Monday, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) used the devastating Oklahoma tornado as an excuse to bash Republicans for denying global warming and implied Republicans were responsible for actually allowing the destructive natural disaster to occur.
“So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said on the Senate floor. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together."
After blaming natural disasters in Oklahoma, Alabama, and Texas on global warming and Republicans, Whitehouse continued his rant by criticizing the Republicans he blamed for then asking the government for federal aid dollars.

8 Months In IRS Limbo, Conservative Group Receives Fast Approval After Changing Name To "Greenhouse Solutions"
In May 2011, Drew Ryun, a conservative activist and former Republican National Committee staffer, began filling out the Internal Revenue Service application to achieve nonprofit status for a new conservative watchdog group.
He submitted the paperwork to the IRS in July 2011 for a research site called Media Trackers, which calls itself a "non-partisan investigative watchdog dedicated to promoting accountability in the media and government." Although the site has investigated Republicans like Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the site's organizers are unapologetically conservative.
"One thing we don't hide is: 'Yeah, we're conservative—free-market, free-enterprise, full-spectrum conservative,'" Ryun told Mother Jones magazine last year.
Eight months passed without word from the agency about the group's application, Ryun said. In February 2012, Ryun's attorney contacted the IRS to ask if it needed more information to secure its nonprofit status as a 501(c)3 organization. According to Ryun, the IRS told him that the application was being processed by the agency's office in Cincinnati, Ohio—the same one currently facing scrutiny for targeting conservative groups—and to check back in two months.
As directed, Ryun followed up with the IRS in April 2012, and was told that Media Trackers' application was still under review.
When September 2012 arrived with still no word from the IRS, Ryun determined that Media Trackers would likely never obtain standalone nonprofit status, and he tried a new approach: He applied for permanent nonprofit status for a separate group called Greenhouse Solutions, a pre-existing organization that was reaching the end of its determination period.
The IRS approved Greenhouse Solutions' request for permanent nonprofit status in three weeks.

Benghazi: Names Of 'Whistleblower' Witnesses Released
Rep Issa: GOP Oversight May 8th Benghazi hearing will be streamed live at http://Oversight.House.Gov at 11:30
Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.God Bless them for their service and courage to come forward.
Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks[...]
DiGenova told Fox News on Thursday, by way of describing his and Toensing’s respective clients: “There were people who were material witnesses, who wanted to talk to [the ARB], and they were not allowed to talk to them.
“The people that we are representing are career civil servants...people who have served the country overseas…in dangerous positions all over the world, have risked their lives and only want to tell the truth.”
Most likely leftist and Bronco Bama's MFM are working hard to destroy the credibility of these patriots before the hearing even starts.

Florida Sheriff: Report Neighbors Who Don't Like Government
The Sheriff's department will then pay a little visit to the neighbor, you know, to confiscate their weapons and make sure they are "safe." (all emphasis mine.)
Bradshaw is readying a hotline and is planning public service announcements to encourage local citizens to report their neighbors, friends or family members if they fear they could harm themselves or others.
Sounds like Nazi Germany to me.
The goal won’t be to arrest troubled people but to get them help before there’s violence, Bradshaw said. As a side benefit, law enforcement will have needed information to keep a close eye on things.
We shall call those who report their neighbors a "National Civilian Security Force." They shall be issued brown shirts with armbands. If you resist their authority, you will be sent to re-education camps. If you fail re-education... well, let's just say no one who fails will be returning to the neighborhood.
"We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him," Bradshaw said. "What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, 'Hey, is everything OK?’'"
What does it hurt? It hurts my Constitutional right to privacy, my Constitutional right to free speech, my Constitutional right to be secure my house, my Constitutional right for probable cause before being searched, my Constitutional right not to incriminate myself, my Constitutional right not to have property seized, and my Constitutional right to keep and bear arms without infringement.
Because they won't be knocking on my door to make sure I'm 'OK.' They will be knocking on my door to look for signs of subversion. They will be looking for indications of dissent, for signs of rebellion, and for excuses to disarm me.
That's what it hurts.

WASHINGTON- House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) made the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s assertion that he’s “not familiar” with Benghazi whistleblowers being blocked from telling their stories:Continued below fold:
“A lawyer for Benghazi whistleblowers has publicly stated that the State Department is blocking her client’s ability to talk freely with counsel. Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this Administration make information available about how lawyers – who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistleblowers – can be cleared to fully hear their clients’ stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama Administration.
“Even if the President really doesn’t know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistleblowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The President’s unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistleblowers only aids those in his Administration who are intimidating them.”

But somehow, both questions also hinged on Benghazi. After responding to Fox News' Ed Henry's inquiry about victims of the Benghazi attack who say they are being blocked from testifying about what they went through, the president answered CNN's Jessica Yellin on claims from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that "Benghazi and Boston are both examples of the U.S. going backwards on national security.""Radicalized individuals". Bronco Bama will not say Islamic terrorists/Muslims/Islamists, just 'individuals'.
Yellin was referring to comments Sen. Graham made recently to CNN in which he affixed blame on the Obama administration for failing to prevent the attacks in Boston. During the press conference today, Yellin asked, "Is he right and did our intelligence miss something?"[More]

Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On #Benghazi, Lawyer Says
At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.You can view James Rosen's full report here.
Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
I'm not talking generally, I'm talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”[...]
However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.[Video maker still in jail..ed]
“It's frightening, and they're doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we're going to kill you,’ or not ‘we're going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

MFM Echoes Harvard 'Revolutionary Socialists' Post #BostonBombing Talking Points
Via Rebel Pundit:
The Harvard “Revolutionary” Socialists gathered last week, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings, for a forum entitled “Don’t Let Them Turn Tragedy into Racism” on the Harvard University campus.Certainly some, if not all, of those in the video support the #FreeJahar hashtag on Twitter.
The two speakers, including “one of Britain’s leading young radical intellectuals,” put forth talking points that not only express the “Revolutionary” socialists’ opinion of the Boston terrorism, but also appear to almost exactly echo those put forth by the mainstream media in the U.S.
From the New Yorker to the Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, and even Tom Brokaw, the media marched in lockstep with the finger-pointing talking points presented in close proximity to the site of the terror at Harvard’s Socialist forum—finger-pointing at anyone and anything but Islamic Jihadis.
Many Americans have expressed disgust at the extreme pains some of the more elite members of the media went to avoid “prematurely judging” or presuming that whoever was responsible for the attack might be Islamic Jihadis. This, coupled with failing to extend such courtesy to those Americans among us opposed to high taxes and big government, was particularly revealing of the focus of the mainstream media.
Just sayin is all...
Oh, and, ISLAM/MUSLIM is NOT a race...

Geraldo Rivera Apologizes To Muslims For Boston Bombing
Because "Islamophopbia" is so much more horrible than this...
How inconsiderate and evil it was of Boston to aggravate Muslim lives.

Bloomberg: Americans Should Surrender Freedoms When Government Infringes
From The Washington Times:
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.
"I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom," Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.
"We"? As in government or as in elitists? "Your"? He doesn't include himself or other governmental officials. He isn't including his own freedoms. He speaks as though the government is a separate entity from the people of the United States.
We are not voting for nannies, for parents, for caregivers, for masters, or for tyrants. We are voting for representatives - for select equals to give our collective voices a podium so we can all be heard.
It is "We the People of the United States," not "the People and the Government." If the government is made up of the People, then to whom is Bloomberg suggesting we cede our freedoms?
