One of Those Masters Gotta Let You Go
Late Wednesday night NPR (National Public Radio) gave its longtime news analyst Juan Williams, a person whom I agree with eighty percent of the time, a well-deserved boot out the back door. Mr Williams made some very Fox News like remarks on the Fox News Channel, on that race bating, anti-Muslim, fear mongering show of Bill O'Reilly, called The O'Reilly Factor. Mr. Williams has been the Fox broadcast News token 'liberal' for years, serving as a Fox News political analyst, while being a NPR news analyst, serving two masters, and collecting two pay checks.
The New York Times reports --
Those down right sneaky Republican-Tea Partiers have put a front group out there telling Hispanics not to vote.
The Republican group Latinos for Reform (Yeah, reform, right) had planned to run the commercials in Nevada, Florida, California, Texas and Colorado through the Nov. 2 election, with the voter suppression message --"Don't vote this November. This is the only way to send them a clear message," the ad's narrator announces in Spanish. "You can no longer take us for granted."
The ad was run in the Nevada, on a Hispanic television before the station yanked it off the air
Old Clarence's wifey phoned Ms. Hill, left a voice mail message on Ms. Hill's phone, asking Ms. Hill to apologize for calling Mr. Thomas, a then-Supreme Court justice nominee, in so many words, a dirty, low down rotten creep.
In 1991, 19 years ago, Ms. Hill testified at Mr. Thomas confirmation hearings. She bore witness. Many of us Americans believe that she spoke the truth..
Yesterday, Tuesday, in a debate, Christine O'Donnell, the Tea Party-GOP candidate, running for a U.S. Senate seat from Delaware against the Democrat Chris Coons, had a debate before an audience of legal scholars and law students at Widener University Law School. Ms O'Donnell challenged Mr. Coons' views on the teaching creationism in public schools.
Mr. Coons said that the Constitution does not permit religious instructions in the public schools, but folks can have their kids instructed in religion in private schools. It's all a matter of the separation of church and state.
The HuffPost Hill reports -- "Making Anschluss with stupidity, the Alaska Senate candidate told a gathering late last week that the former communist state's approach to border security is imitable. Very imitable, indeed. 'East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow," Miller said at a town hall on Sunday. 'Now, obviously, other things there were involved,' he added 'We have the capacity, as a great nation, obviously, to secure our border. If East Germany could, we could.'"
Way to go Joe. I don't think too many lost souls are escaping from Hell either, but we don't want to heap praises on the devil, do we?
Reports the Associated Press --
Really?. Of course!. A new group?!
People who tell folks not to vote must want folks to be like the three monkeys: Don't See, Don't Hear, Don't Speak. People who don't vote aren't seen, aren't heard and they have no voice. They do not speak
Methinks there is more to this "new" group and to the "Don't vote," political ad, that has been put out by the president of Latinos for Reform, Robert Desposada, who has been described as "a conservative political consultant and political analyst for Univision."
The Huffington Post reports that, "he said the ad is a sincere effort to express Hispanic frustration with the Democrats failure to deliver on immigration reform."
Yesterday on NBC's Meet The Press in a debate with his Democratic opponent, Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado, Tea Party-Republican Senate candidate, Ken Buck, "compared homosexuality to alcoholism."
Mr. Paul's Democratic opponent Jack Conway has an ad up reminding the voters, of Kentucky, of Mr. Paul's past descent into heathenism. Last night, Sunday, during the debate between the candidates, Mr. Paul demanded an apology, because Mr. Conway's campaign was telling the truth about Mr. Paul's past -- or is it his present? Mr. Paul does want to end the federal tax deduction for religious charities. Mr Paul took the truth telling personal, called the truth slander.
Yeah, Fox News Is Making Money for Me, America.
Rupert Murdoch answered his critics at the News Corporation annual shareholders meeting in New York this morning, Friday. To those who questioned his decision to help finance right wing Republicans with a one million dollar donation to the Republican Governors Association and a second million dollar donation to the Chamber of Commerce, he had scorn. He all but blew his nose and gave them the finger. To those who criticized Fox Cable News -- He answered them in his letter to shareholders.
Media Matters report, Murdoch wrote:
The Tea Party movement really is the invention of tricksters, the scam of con men. It is not grass roots. It is a carnival of trickery, a wicked scheme to fool ordinary and frightened people, who are pressed by the economy, into thinking that the only way to get out of this economic mess is to return to power the folks who created this mess.
Carl Paladino or put-on Carl, the religious, anti-gay, pro family values zealot, who sends pictures of women having sex with animals, and sends out racists email, is losing support among the religious and cultural bigots. Not because of his fondness for porn; or his racists email. Those things are old news, but because he is suspected of not really truly being a gay basher at heart, but a dude who only bashed gays to appeal to the bigot vote.
Reports the Tea Party mouthpiece, Fox News -- Rabbi Yehuda Levin has withdrawn his support from Mr Paladino --"says Paladino doesn't have any backbone and bowed to political pressure."
Muslims? One billion Muslims conspired to kill us on 911? The millions of American Muslims, most born in this country, were in on the plot? Is that what this Mr. O'Reilly believes? Or is he just being his old porn effin self? In the old days he wrote sex porn, now he's in to hate porn.
I have often wondered why the hate is so strong for people who think they are doing so much good. I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter how much good they THINK they are doing - they are trying to send us back to the Reagan Years - and although I was just barely alive during that time I hated every moment of it.
