You know it’s bad when fellow Democrats are saying this about Obama.

Female Latino Republican Governor “does not have a Latino heart” says…white male Democrat

9 Sep

 

I think that we can all agree that if there is anyone who knows who does, or doesn’t, have a “Latino heart” it’s white dudes.  Am I right?

Gary King is a white man and is the Democratic nominee for Governor of New Mexico.  He is challenging incumbent Republican Governor Susana Martinez, who is Hispanic. Recently at a fundraiser King recalled the words of a previous speaker, Hispanic labor activist Dolores Huerta, and told his guests that Martinez “does not have a Latino heart.”

“She said you can’t go out there and just vote for somebody for governor because they have a Latino surname,” King says. “She said you have to look at them and find out if they have a Latino heart. And we know that Susana Martinez does not have a Latino heart.”

I’ll be on the look out for the outrage from Hispanic groups demanding an apology from Gary King.

“Petition: Allow the Administration to Secretly Bug Fox News”

The fact that even one person would sign something this idiotic is scary.

 

 

 

 

MSNBC has figured out why IRS targeted Conservative groups

20 May

 

File this one in the “Can’t Make This Stuff Up” category.  MSNBC actually speculated today that because the former IRS Commissioner was a Bush appointee that he may have been targeting Conservative and Tea Party groups because he was felt that they were unpopular and a threat to the GOP:

Is it possible that the right-leaning Tea Party was being forced to reconcile onerous information requests from the Internal Revenue Service because former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who was appointed by PresidentGeorge W. Bush, thought the nascent conservative movement reflected poorly on the Republican Party? This is the theory that was posited on MSNBC on Monday in an effort to explain the IRS’ admission that they had singled out conservative groups for undue scrutiny.

“Is it really the interesting part here that Shulman, who was a Bush appointee, might have been looking at Tea Party groups because of what it might have done to the Republican Party at the time – in the future of what we’re seeing now; basically, splintering the foundation of the Republican side?” MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts asked?

Allahpundit from Hot Air adds more:

The logic is ironclad and inexorable: Doug Shulman, appointed IRS commissioner by Bush in March 2008, was so fiercely loyal to his Beltway Republican masters that he decided to risk his career to kneecap conservative insurgents’ nonprofits in 2010 … even though Bush had left office more than a year before and the GOP establishment he represented was widely loathed by pretty much everyone in America. Oh, and even though (again per Rothman) Shulman himself has donated to the DNC in the past. Say it with me, guys: This. Is. A. Republican. Scandal.

In the same spirit of half-assed spitballing/“news,” how’s this for an alternate theory: Shulman tacitly approved of the tea-party targeting because he was eager to prove himself a loyal soldier to a new Democratic administration that might have been suspicious of his Bush pedigree. After hearing tea partiers impugned a thousand timesby Dem officials and liberal media outlets — none more so than MSNBC — maybe he got it in his head that singling out these right-wing would-be domestic terrorists was the patriotic (and career-furthering) thing to do. Slightly more plausible, yes? As theories go, I’d say it’s 51-percent-assed. Soon we’ll get to hear Shulman’s side of it when he’s inevitably subpoenaed by Darrell Issa’s committee. And, almost as inevitably, his testimony won’t be carried live by MSNBC.

I guess what MSNBC is saying is that, in sort of a round-a-bout way, it’s Bush’s fault that the IRS targeted Conservative groups.

 

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.

 

 

 

Hank Johnson (D-GA): “Imagine a World Without Balloons”

14 May

 

Is this guy serious?  What is going on in 4th District of Georgia that this is the person they choose to represent them in Congress?

 

Let’s not forget one of his all-time greatest hits either…back when he was worried that Guam could “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation:

 

Very, very scary that this person gets to vote in Congress.

 

 

 

“Top CBS, ABC, CNN execs all have relatives working as advisors for White House”

13 May

Can’t make this stuff up.  No wonder these “news” outlets don’t like to cover stories that are harmful to Democrats.  They would be hurting their own families!

 

More here from Hot Air:

Would the media reaction really be different without the sibling/spouse conflicts of interest, though? Half of me thinks the blood ties between the White House and media VIPs deserve lots of publicity and half of me thinks that publicizing it inadvertently lets them off the hook. They’re not in the tank out of family loyalty, they’re in the tank out of ideological loyalty. Replace the leadership at CBS, ABC, and CNN and you’ll get the same results. But Grenell’s not arguing to the contrary: The point here is simply to show that our government leadership and our media leadership are so chummy that, not infrequently, they’ve literally lived in the same house. It’s an especially vivid illustration of a wider problem.
