The right-wing ?angry mob? plays by the rules; #OWS does not*

As many of you already know,a “Virginia tea party group is demanding a refund of about $8,000 from the city of Richmond, claiming it was unfairly charged for rallies while Occupy protesters have used the same space for several weeks for free.”  Love it when a right-of-center group calls out the double standards under which ...

Democrats --The New Right Wing?
2009-06-22 16:55:00
The chatter on this point is gaining steam. I know Bill Maher has touched on this, and I read something on Americablog, where Senator Paul Krugman is also taking up the cause.I am sorry, I just don't get it?They talk about the Republican party having lost its direction? Well it seems to me they are causing confusion for some so-called "centrist" democrats. These waffling GOP wannabe Senators are not sure what position they should take on any issue without the guidance of the bat-shit-crazy GOP.The Republicans are rapidly relegating themselves to the nut-job fringe of politics, and Senators like Lieberman are still eager to follow them. What is up with that? I thought Lieberman was enough of a political opportunist, that he would follow the popular flow, no matter where it took him or is alleged "opinion." It appears that even this king of the flip-flop has become confused and truly lost his own identity.The obvious story here is that DEMOCRATS are sabotaging the opportunity t...

How Irrational and Misanthropic Right-Wing Extremism under guise of Tax Rev
2009-05-29 21:43:00
"...A good government implies two things: first, fidelity to the object of government, which is the happiness of the people; secondly, a knowledge of the means by which that object can be best attained. Some governments are deficient in both these qualities; most governments are deficient in the first. I scruple not to assert, that in American governments too little attention has been paid to the last. The federal Constitution avoids this error; and what merits particular notice, it provides for the last in a mode which increases the security for the first...The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what th...

Right-wing minimalism

Israeli Left is consistent in its nihilism: atheist democracy instead of Judaism, stripping Israel of ideologically sensitive areas lest they become a rallying point for right-wingers, and abandoning security so that Israel would be forced to rely on gentile powers and follow their tune. So, basically, leftists need to do nothing: they achieve their goals ...

Alexandra Pelosi’s new documentary Right America: Feeling Wronged is simultaneously frightening and funny. She talks to the kind of people who spend eight hours waiting in oppressive heat just to catch a glimpse of Sarah Palin. Then these same people ignorantly fantasize about eight years of even more oppressive heat. Check it. This kid reminds my of former students before they became my students. I know some of you will write to me that these people are the exception and not the rule. I disagree. Over 58 million of them voted against Barack Obama in November and this documentary represents their thinking in a brutally honest way. Plus I’ve seen pictures of the Florida State Fair. Who do *you* think is dipping bacon in chocolate? Speaking of brutally honest bacon…what’s up with Michele Bachmann? Is she an exception as well?
Close race, but right-wing bloc is majority

Year End Stuff At Right Wing News
2009-01-02 16:39:00
Apparently due to some weird filtering I had going on in my inbox, there’s been an awful lot of traffic coming in from John Hawkins over at Right Wing News, that I’ve been missing. Mostly, what I’ve been missing is invitations to one poll or another. I must say, I’m a little annoyed by having found this little cache of outdated material, because I’m usually up for anything John’s got running. Clearly, this is my fault and I’ll work on getting those filters running correctly today. In the meanwhile, by way of apology I’ll offer the following; He’s got an awful lot going on in terms of year and stuff that’s worth your perusal. Start at the top and keep scrolling.

Take The Boffo Billo Right-Wing Quisling Quiz!
2008-12-08 23:37:00
(By the way, I also posted over here.)Why lookee here! It seems that the most-high pontificator against rampant secularism and ?the homosexual agenda? (whatever on earth that is, and I?ve never heard a good explanation, by the way) has brought us a ?holiday? quiz (hey now, you mean it?s not called a ?Christmas? quiz, Bill? What a sellout you are!).And if you take the quiz, why, you?ve automatically entered yourself into a contest to win a copy of Orally?s book, ?A Bold, Fresh Piece Of Insanity,? or something (signed, of course).Well, since Billo has brought us 10 questions to answer in the spirit of the season, I think it?s only fair that I present 10 questions to answer about Falafel Boy on other matters as well, so here they are?1) Whose electoral victory did Billo falsely certify in the previous election?a) Ted Stevensb) John McCainc) Norm Colemand) Elizabeth DoleAnswer here:2) Billo claimed that, if Prop 8 had not been passed in California, then ?a man could have (multiple) wive...

South African Blames Right Wing Elements For Riots
2008-05-24 09:00:00
Soth Africa’s security chief accused rightwngers linked to the formr apartheid government of fanning anti-foreign riots over the past two weeks that have left 42 dead and thousands driven from their homes. Manala Manzini said: “We have information to the effect that elements that were involved in the pre-1994 election violence are in fact the same elements that have re-startedd contacts with people that they used in the past.” He asserted that members of the Zulu Inkatha Freedom Party(IFP) were playing a role in the anti-foreign outbreaks. Even as he spoke, mobs attacked Somali and Zmbabwean areas whose homes and shops were looted and frequently burned down. Many critics are blaming the ineffectual behavior of President Mbeki as a contributing factor in allowing the riots to spread. He hesitated to send in the armed forces or to reinforce police at the first sign of trouble, and his continued support for President Mugabe of Zimbabwe sent a message that he doesn&r...
‘Right Wing News’ Withdraws McCain Support
2008-05-23 13:53:00
Mmmfph. I was afraid of this, though I must say it came sooner than I figured it. I’ve never been a fan of John McCain. Not only is he not a conservative, he may have done more damage to the conservative movement than any other Republican over the last few years. Look back at the Gang-of-14, global warming, McCain-Feingold, coddling terrorists at Gitmo, illegal immigration — on and on and on, and you’ll remember John McCain working feverishly with liberals to defeat conservatives. That’s the opening of a post that’ll have the whole ’sphere talking, very shortly. It’s posted by John Hawkins, over at Right Wing News, entitled “Why I Will No Longer Support John McCain For President” What pushed John over the edge? McCain’s on- again off- again support for Amnesty, which is otherwise somewhat laughingly called “comprehensive immigration reform” Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor,...

Bolivia: Fraud, violence and mass resistance marks right-wing push
2008-05-17 01:54:00
by Bolivia Rising (Fred Fuentes) A day of violence, fraud and a “grand rebellion” against the Santa Cruz oligarchy. This is how Bolivian president, Evo Morales Ayma, described the result of the unconstitutional May 4 “autonomy” referendum organised by the authorities in Santa Cruz — which many feared was aimed at dividing Bolivia. The referendum was the first in a series of proposed referendums to be held in the departments of the so-called Half Moon — Santa Cruz plus Pando, Beni and Tarija, resource-rich departments in Bolivia’s east. The Half Moon remains dominated by the white oligarchy despite the coming to power nationally of Morales, Bolivia’s first indigenous president, on the back of a mass movement against neoliberalism led by the indigenous majority. Illegal vote While the National Electoral Court had ruled that the autonomy referendum — which the government had proposed be held simultaneously with a referendum to approve the new constitution — could...
Nightly Ramble: The difference, Rummy, racism and the left, The Right wing
2008-05-12 22:09:00
David will undoubtedly get a smile over James Joyner’s first post on Saturday. Men and women are different… who knew? Speaking of James, we had an interesting discussion as regards Rumsfeld, et al, over there, you’ll want to check out. As I said over there, it strikes me that the less than ideal situation that developed in Iraq following the initial invasion was the result of an argument within the Military over which comes higher… Military doctrine, or orders from the civilian leadership. I think that argument gets glossed over in the politically driven rush to blame the civilian leadership. Comments about Henke’s understandably thin-skinned response to MK aside, he’s bang on right with the racism that is at the root of the Democrat party. As I told him, I’ve been saying it for years; The very reason that such as MK can’t seem to recognize their own racism and sexism is that the very root of their political identity is based on group po...

Right-wing revolt threatens Bolivia
2008-04-30 05:51:00
by Bolivia Rising (Federico Fuentes) "Bolivia is on the verge of exploding", Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned on April 21. Speaking on the eve of an extraordinary summit of the Bolivarian Alternative of the Americas (ALBA — the alliance made of Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia and Dominica) that was partly called to discuss the situation in Bolivia, Chavez stated the landlocked Andean country was "...once again under fire — for daring to dream of retaking the path of dignity, liberty and real independence". "The empire wants to put a brake on the integration of South America", Chavez argued, and has chosen Bolivia as its immediate target. "Today the cause of Bolivia is the cause of the dignified people of Latin America who fight for unity and liberty." Chavez said that, "We are and will continue to be with Bolivia and we extend our hand and our heart" to the Bolivian people. Illegal referendum At the hear...

Clinton promises mortgage reform?by adopting right-wing talking points and
2008-03-26 01:27:00
Right now the Clinton campaign carnage is focused on whether or not falsely claiming to be shot at on a Bosnian tarmac qualifies you to be ready to answer the red phone at 3 am. But there are other, subtler issues surrounding her that give me serious pause when considering whether or not she can truly be a progressive, or even Democratic president. Her approach to dealing with the mortgage meltdown and resultant economic crisis is generally sound, especially in terms of endorsing the plans put forth by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, both of whom have been doing some serious heavy lifting on this issue for the past few years.  But Clinton runs the risk of sabotaging the plan in a major way by putting none other than Alan “Irrational Exuberance” Greenspan himself in charge of the working group handling the initiative. This proposal has already been viciously savaged by anyone with a lick of common sense as a prime example of setting the fox to guard the henhouse–you s...

Germany : record number of right-wing attacks in 2007
2008-03-11 05:16:00
The German activist group, Gesicht Zeigen! (Show your Faces), monitors attacks by right-wing thugs and neo-Nazis. The group was founded by the anti-racist campaigner, Uwe-Karsten Heye, a former spokesperson for Germany's Social Democratic-Green Coalition.The stats kept by Gesicht Zeigen! show that some 600 people were assaulted by right-wing attackers in 2007. In the state of Brandenburg alone there were 11 attacks on businesses operated by immigrants. It is part of a right-wing strategy aimed at intimidation and the destruction of livelihoods.Over the last two decades 130 people have been murdered by thugs from various right-wing groups. These include immigrants, asylum seekers and the homeless. The hard men of the right rarely pick fights with those who can fight back, invariably they pick on the weak, the vulnerable and those they perceive as outsiders.Xenophobia is alive and well in Germany. Heye caused controversy in 2006 when he stated that parts of Germany were no-go areas f...

Daily Kos: Times Square Explosion a Right Wing Plot
2008-03-06 20:44:00
This morning someone lobbed a small explosive at a Time Square recruiting station. Police on the scene found another explosive device when they arrived. I think that’s enough to show that the right-wingers are behind this event: INCITE the violence, or to trigger arranged mob responses, and make sure it all gets pinned on the Left. And the right seems to be able to get the FBI and law enforcement to do this for them as well. Anarchy, chaos, property damage, physical harm, mayhem, murder, militarized police with massive crowd control equipment, are all ‘options’ the right are eager to use to shut down any potentially energizing movement. The “energizing movement” that the comment’s author, “antirove,” is talking about is all “the good energy and work that came together around candidates like John Edwards and now Obama.” So, to the far left moonbats (yes, I used that term), this event could be nothing more than a trick b...
Kill Bill (C-10) campaign gathers steam; Right-wing Christians mobilizing s
2008-03-06 17:30:00
The Kill Bill (C-10) firestorm is getting hotter. Canada's television industry has entered the fight telling the government to keep its hands off of Canadian film and television production. The Directors Guild of Canada and ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) are both urging the government to stop Bill C-10, an amendment to the Income Tax Act that would allow the Minister of Heritage to claw back tax credits from any production deemed ?contrary to public policy?. A Facebook page has also been created "Keep Your Censoring Hands Off Of Canadian Film and TV! No to Bill C-10!" to provide information and make it easier for Canadians to contact elected representatives. At the centre of the storm is a relatively new lobby group on Parliament Hill, the Canada Family Action Coalition, a small group of Christians who, according to their website, have a ?vision to see Judeo-Christian moral principles restored in Canada?.

Right Wing Attacks on Obama

The shady part comes from Obama’s association with Rezko. The problem with this accusation is that the shadiness is totally on Rezko’s part. I don’t doubt ...
McCain Sells His Soul Over Torture Issue for Right Wing Votes
2008-02-17 00:02:00
McCain has sold his soul to the devil just for a shot at the presidency.  Once an outspoken critic of the Bush Administration’s use of torture, he now backs away from his previously principles just to get more votes from the Right-Wing Bush nuts.  This past week, John McCain voted against a bill that would ban extreme torture in interrogations. Now we’re tortured in trying to find McCain’s set of principles while he tries to find voters that will support him.  Read the story and commentary from the Huffington Post: Has there ever been a more repugnant example of political pandering than John McCain’s decision to vote against a bill banning waterboarding, putting hoods on prisoners, forcing them to perform sex acts, subjecting them to mock executions, or depriving them of food, water, and medical treatment? That’s right, John McCain, the former POW who has long been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s disturbing embrace of extreme i...
