Rush Limbaugh: “I live rent-free in his head”

14 May

 

Obama was at a fundraiser (again) in NYC on Monday.  As usual, Obama brings up Rush Limbaugh as the reason for the country’s current state of polarization. Yep, if it were not for Rush Limbaugh everything would be swell.  No partisanship.  No arguing or fighting.  Nope…everything would be great because liberals are super tolerant and love to hear different points of view.  It’s the hate mongers like Rush Limbaugh that are the intolerant ones, not liberals.

Rush Limbaugh responded:

Former NAACP chair: it’s cool for IRS to harass Tea Party because they are “admittedly racist” and are the “Taliban wing of American politics”

14 May

 

Tolerance, NAACP style:

 

 

“Admittedly racist”?  I must have missed that admission.  More like falsely accused of being racist for opposing a President (who happens to be black) with whom they fundamentally disagree (you know, kind of like how people like former NAACP Chairma Julian Bond disagreed vehemently with President Bush for 8 years).  Question: were the Republicans who opposed Bill Clinton racists?  How about those that oppose Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and other white Democrats?  Racists too?

Just watch what happens if Hillary Clinton is the nominee for the Democrat Party in 2016 (or any other white Democrat).  She will be just as opposed as Obama ever was.

But, the reality is, Julian Bond knows this isn’t true.  He probably just gets a kick out of calling people racists (plus he knows that he can get away with saying it).

What an embarrassment.

 

 

 

University Board Votes to Keep Chick-fil-A on Campus Despite Protests

3 May

 

 

Elon University’s board of trustees voted to keep Chick-fil-A on campus despite protests from the “tolerant” student government.

The Elon University board of trustees voted last week to keep a Chick-fil-A on campus despite a vote from the school’s student government to remove the popular fast food chain for its president’s stance against gay marriage.

The movement to oust the chicken sandwich restaurant began last year when company president Truett Cathy stated his opposition to gay marriage…

…Student reaction to the decision has been mixed.

Cameron Saucier, a sophomore at Elon, said he believes there are more important things for the board to worry about than a restaurant primarily known for its chicken sandwiches.

“We’ve had several public forums and committees to discuss whether to keep a fast food chain when we have tuition hikes coming up next year and other issues that need to be addressed,” Saucier stated. “It’s kind of ridiculous.”

He said he believes the entire Chick-fil-A controversy was a result of political correctness taking over his college campus and is representative of how opposing thoughts are not welcomed at Elon.

“Political correctness has just gone way too far on Elon’s campus and the whole incident should’ve never happened in the first place,” Saucier commented.

While Saucier seemed fine with the school’s decision, members of Elon’s LGBT community were offended that the school decided to keep the restaurant.

“The fact that Elon condones [Chick-fil-A] both surprises and upsets me,” Holly Brown, a member of the LGBT group Spectrum, told Elon Local News. “You would think preventing discrimination would be more important than a chicken sandwich.”

 

 

 

When Liberals Attack: Seattle May Day

2 May

 

 

Leftists in Seattle behaving about like you would expect yesterday.  One can only imagine what the reaction would be if a Conservative group did something like this.  Obama would probably already have a press conference scheduled to call for civility, or something.  But, since it’s people who side with Democrats on most issues, it will get hardly any coverage (if any) from the Democrat media.

In Seattle, protesters threw rocks and bottles at police officers and news crews. As they moved through downtown Seattle to another neighborhood, they flung construction street barriers, trash cans and newspaper bins on the streets in an attempt to stop police officers. Windows of businesses were broken and vehicles with people in them were banged around.

At one point, a crew from CBS Seattle affiliate KIRO-TV was surrounded by rowdy protesters. They spit and sprayed Silly String on KIRO reporter David Ham and hit his photographer, the station reports.

Obama Housing Nominee: “Majority of White Voters” Would Never Vote for a Black Candidate, Should be Excluded from the ‘Democratic Process’

2 May

 

From The Daily Caller:

President Obama’s pick to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency once said that a “majority of white voters” would never vote for a black candidate and that they should be excluded from “the democratic process.”

The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies.

Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has in the past accused white Americans of racism.

“There would be a substantial majority of white voters who would say that under no circumstances would they vote for an African American candidate,” Watt said Oct. 14, 2005 during a Washington hearing held by the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act.

The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to “adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account,” Watts said.

Such voters “need to be factored out of the equation,” Watt said, because “I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”

I’m beginning to notice a pattern here.

Shockingly, no Democrat media outlets mentioned any of this in their reporting of this nomination:

LA Times – no mention

Yahoo News – no mention

U.S. News and World Report – no mention

 

Seems to be another pattern.

 

 

Robert Griffin III Blasts Political Correctness

30 Apr

 

Unknown-1

 

In a move that is certain to solidify his status as a “cornball brother,” Robert Griffin III (RG III) Tweeted this today:

In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness

Some are speculating that it could be due to the news that a D.C. Council member is preparing to introduce a resolution calling on the Washington Redskins to change its name, possibly to the Washington Redtails.

Council member David Grosso, an independent elected last year, said he plans to pursue his non-binding resolution because the current name is “a derogatory, racist name.”

And to finally put all the speculation to rest, this story from yesterday wonders why RG III skipped the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner AND private pre-dinner reception with President Obama as well.

Robert Griffin III was the perfect guest at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg party Saturday: Charming, relaxed, willing to pose for a photo with anyone who asked. The Redskins’ star quarterback lingered for more than two hours, leaving the ultra-exclusive bash with team owner Dan Snyder just before 2 a.m.

Which makes what happened earlier that night so surprising: RGIII apparently blew off not just the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner — where he was to be the guest of NBC — but a private pre-dinner reception with President Obama as well.

Media organizations spend months wrangling VIP guests for the annual event, vying for the buzziest names. While many are touted in advance, others are kept secret until the big night. That was NBC’s strategy with their quarterback guest, though they did alert dinner organizers that he was expected. We’re told that Griffin was one of the elite cadre of dinner VIPs whose name was submitted a couple weeks earlier for clearance into the most exclusive reception of the entire weekend — a backstage meet-and-greet with the president and the first lady. Nicole Kidman, Bradley Cooper, and dinner entertainer Conan O’Brien joined WHCA President Ed Henry and other select guests on that elite list.

But RGIII never turned up.

Wow.  He blew off President Obama?!

Here is some of the reaction on Twitter.

I really hope RG III keeps this up.  Because if he does, he is likely to get plenty of attacks from liberals.  If so, it could potentially be an eye-opening experience for some people out there.  Watching the people who are constantly calling for a more tolerant society rip apart a smart, honorable and talented person, solely for his personal beliefs, will be very telling.

I Wonder if Obama Will Call These Kids to Offer His Condolences?

1 May

 

Obama’s pick for spokesman for his anti-bullying campaign, Dan Savage, is going about as well as expected.

Recently at a high school journalism conference, Savage, after making reference to just having sex with his male partner,  launched a profanity laced attack upon the Bible and Christianity.  He mentioned that regarding homosexuality, “we can learn to ignore the bulls***” contained in the Bible.  He then went on to elaborate [erroneously] on how the Bible endorsed slavery and the honor killing of women who lose their virginity before marriage.  He then intimated that the GOP would like to see both slavery and honor killings restored.  He closed his attack by referring to the Christian students who walked out of his screed as “pansy-assed.”

What a shocker, a liberal, pretending to be offended by being bullied because of his beliefs, is actually a hard-core bully himself.  He’s so offended by the LGBT community being harassed and bullied over the years that he started the It Gets Better Project, that has led to multiple Democrat politicians, including Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi to make personal “It Gets Better” YouTube videos themselves.  Yep, Mr. Savage is so tired of being bullied for his beliefs that he decided to attack Christians for their belief in the Bible in front of a group of high school students, then made fun of them for walking out in disgust by calling them “pansy assed.”

Nice pick, Mr. President.

So, that leads me to the question.  Will President Obama call these students who were offended by the comments of Mr. Savage?  We all know how concerned President Obama was for Georgetown Law Student Sandra Fluke after she was insulted by Rush Limbaugh a few months ago.  He was so concerned that he called her personally to offer his support.  I guess if you are asking tax payers to pay for your contraceptives you are somehow more noble and worthy of a phone call from the President that if you are just some Christian who was attacked for your religious beliefs.

Here are a few more gems from Mr. Anti-Bullying himself:

In a December 2010 interview with Newsweek, he called Supreme Court Justice Scalia a “c***sucker.”  On Bill Maher’s show he said that he wished “the Republicans were all f***ing dead.”  He later told Maher that he wanted to “f*** the s*** out of [Santorum].”

That is exactly the type of person I would expect the President of the United States to pick as the head of his anti-bullying campaign!  What an asset to the team!

Here is the video of Dan Savage’s attack on Christians and the Bible in front of high school students:

 

This piece from The American Thinker sums it up nicely:

Based on how quickly Barack Obama raced out to the microphones to address what he felt were demeaning comments directed toward the frail Ms. Fluke, is Obama planning on doing likewise and officially distancing himself from Dan Savage by publicly addressing his “inappropriate,” anti-Christian remarks?

When he’s finished straightening out Mr. Savage, will the President then be phoning the children who were called ‘pansy asses’ by his abusive White House guest, as he did Sandra Fluke ?  Will he tell the kiddies their parents should be proud of them for the dignified way they respectfully dismissed themselves from the awkward confrontation?

Afterwards, at his next press conference, will Obama share that he thought about how terribly his Christian daughters Sasha and Malia would have felt being singled out and insulted in such a public way, just for going to a high school journalism conference?

Will Barack Obama condemn verbal and religious abuse of any kind and remind America “The remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse.” Or will Mr. Obama send a strong but silent message of agreement to the anti-bullying bully Dan Savage by choosing to say absolutely nothing at all?
