Last week on the eve of the historic coup in the House, I posted DO NOT BREAK THE WINDOWS in response to some radical thought patterns being expressed out there on the right-wing blogosphere. I followed up urging calm & restraint.
True to form, all this past week the Mainstream Media has been repeating the story of racist and anti-homosexual catcalls & slurs yelled at Democrat Congressmen last Sunday, as they walked past crowds of Tea Partiers:
“Tea Party” protesters allegedly hurled racial slurs at Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat. Mr. Carson said that "hundreds of people" were chanting, "Kill the bill," and he heard "at least 15 times" the "n – word" being thrown around.
I have a problem with this misconduct - particularly since nobody can produce any proof that any of this ever took place. I’m not from Missouri but I say it anyhow: "SHOW ME."
The videos above and below were taken as Mr. Lewis and Mr. Carson walked toward a crowd of protesters, and racial epithets from the crowd appear to be absent from the different scenes captured.
A U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman said she was unaware of any law enforcement inquiry into the incidents.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II, Missouri Democrat, who is black, claimed he was spat on by a protester. Mr. Cleaver's office reportedly said Capitol Police arrested the protester, but his office did not press charges. However, Sgt. Kimberly Schneider of the U.S. Capitol Police said in an e-mail to the L.A. Times, "We did not make any arrests today."
This is a classic case of Goebbell’s Primary Law of Propaganda:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
SOMEBODY has been throwing bricks through windows this past week. I’m willing to bet when the dust settles we’ll find some kind of Liberal Dirty Tricks Squad has something to do with this. When Rahm Emanuel saw those idiotic blog postings calling for bricks to be thrown through windows, you know he thought right away: “WOAH – this one is right out of Saul Alinsky's playbook."
I can just see Ol' Dead Fish Emanuel sliding over to Bill Ayers and saying, "Hey Bill, how about getting some of Bernadine’s anarchist trolls to toss a few bricks?”
I often wonder what readers of my blog think of the relationship between conservative-Tea-Partier-pro-Sarah-Pahlin STORMBRINGER and moderate FrumForum? It’s about engagement; I don't always agree with David Frum but he represents votes - and the way to win elections by including people, not shutting them out.
American elections are won not by the solid block of registered party members on either side of the spectrum, but rather by the great big sector in the middle; Joe Six Pack is middle class, working class, often a union member or black who votes Republican but would never admit it in the light of day for fear of reprisal from their own kind.
In 1980 Ronald Reagan won a landslide on the Democratic vote. These were the same “Reagan Democrats” who gave us Republican victories throughout the eighties, nineties and up until 2006, when the endless stream of left wing propaganda that constantly spews out of the so-called ‘Mainstream Media’ finally turned the electorate.
The Democrats didn’t win in ’06 and ’08 because of any new ideas; they won because they successfully masked their identities and their agenda. The masks are off at last and the American people do not like what they see.
There WAS bipartisanship in the healthcare debacle, by the way; it was on the side of the people who were against it. 34 House Democrats who voted WITH the Republicans; AGAINST the healthcare monstrosity which passed by the squeakiest of margins and only AFTER a LOT of bribery and Chicago thug strongarm tactics.
Right now common wisdom is that a lot of Reagan Democrats are going to vote Republican in the Federal Elections this November and again in 2012, and the Democrats are going to experience their greatest upset since the Republicans took Congress in ’94. We’ve already seen the Chicago Way conducted right before our very eyes in Congress; you can bet your bottom dollar “Dead Fish” Emmanuel is going to be pulling some stunts that make the nude shower confrontation look like a visit from the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
This is THEIR idea of a class act:
