Louisiana Democrat Party Chair: opposition to Obamacare due to racism

31 May

 

Playing the one card that she and her fellow Democrats have in their deck, LA Democrat Party Chair Karen Carter Peterson took to the floor and claimed that those who oppose Obamacare do so because they are racists.

 

It’s people like Karen Carter Peterson, and other Democrats, that make actual instances of racism be taken less seriously.  Also, I wonder what her explanation is for why white Republicans oppose white Democrats like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton?

Free speech is totally awesome to liberals…as long as it’s not Conservative speech.

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

 

 

 

 

People actually sign a big “thank you” card to the IRS for targeting Tea Party and Conservative groups

30 May

 

Video here of people willing to sign a big thank you card to the IRS for targeting the Tea Party, and Conservative and religious groups:

 

More from The Blaze:

While most people, both on the left and right, are understandably outraged by the abuse of power, others are not. In fact, some people — hopefully the small minority — are actually thankful.

Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham traveled to Colorado University in Boulder and asked several people to sign a “thank you” card to thank the IRS for unfairly targeting conservative groups. The giant poster board read: “Thank You IRS! Tea Party Deserves It!”

One guy said the whole thing was just a “fake scandal” and it makes sense that the IRS would specifically target conservative tax-exempt organizations.

Amazing.

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.

 

Killing eagles is bad…sometimes

14 May

 

Unbelievable piece from Hot Air :

When it comes to enforcing the environmental laws concerning certain species of federally-protected birds, the Obama administration and their environmentalist allies have been impressively diligent in charging oil companies, coal plants, and power stations when said birds get tangled up in their power lines or drown in their waste pits; in the past five years, prosecutors have managed to wrack up tens of millions of dollars in fines and settlements from various businesses, including oil and gas companies, for these egregious offenses.

When it comes to winds farms, however, the federal government has been oddly negligent in enforcing these same laws — which is weird, seeing as how the American wind industry kills hundred of thousands of birds every single year. The Associated Press reports that the Obama administration has yet to levy any fines or file any suits against wind companies, and that Congress is picking up on the rather glaring enforcement discrepancy:

It’s a double standard that some Republicans in Congress said Tuesday they would examine after an Associated Press investigation revealed that the Obama administration has shielded the wind power industry from liability and helped keep the scope of the deaths secret…

More than 573,000 birds are killed by the country’s wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles, according to an estimate published in March in the peer-reviewed Wildlife Society Bulletin.

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.
