I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick and tired of the so-called tea baggers who are running around the country on lobbyist-paid-for buses trying to convince people that they speak for the majority of Americans. In concert with loons like Rush, Glenn and Sean, they feel free to make up the most outrageous lies and scare tactics to try to make sure that Obama doesn’t succeed on any level. It doesn’t matter if the seniors, or the middle class in general, are harmed. The most important thing is that this band of sore losers disrupts anything that might give credit to a Democratic president, especially a black one.

No votes yet

first two paragraphs (which is as far as I got) called people who disagree with Barry O racists.

If you disagree with the man's politics they toss out the ol race card. If that's all they've got, then it's a pretty weak arguement.

If they have more of substance, then why use it at all?

You're an *sshole Wolfpup

The race card canard....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Tell truth about the economy

Numerous declarations that the recession is over is exactly the moment when what's left of our so-called economy is most likely to implode.

The vaunted rally for the last six months is pure wishing over facts supported by errant market manipulation by foundering banks enabled by a panicked government.

A true restructuring could be possible if the public overcomes the cognitive fog with a reality agenda. What we see today is a rush into delusion, seasoned with grievance and gall.

The lack of American leadership in public, private, and media organizations is smashing lives, careers, families, property, and cherished institutions. (MORE)

Solutions are to re-scale daily activities to real constraints dealing with available energy, metals, minerals, and capital. We have to dismantle things with no future. Goodbye to big-box shopping, hello rebuilt Main Street. Many more people working in local farming, fewer in tourism, public relations, and gambling. Re-establish manufacturing of basic useful products. Decommission suburbia; reactivate small towns and cities. Sunset our car addiction and rebuild our trains, transit systems, and harbors at maximum levels.

Ah...utopia....

First we just need to pass a few laws....then curtail freedom of speech, property rights, build some camps, round up dissenters as enemies of the state, kill a couple million people, clamp down on every aspect of the remaining peoples lives......

Ah...Utopia.....comrade..

I think Wolfpup has replaced Troy Neff as my pick for Most Annoying Poster Ever.

Because he consistently makes these posts which he makes claims and points fingers. He rarely cites facts or even stories. When he does it's thinkprogress or moveon. And he has a unhealth obsession with Glenn Beck.

Thank you I take that as a compliment, Mikey ;-)

Quote from article:
"Hustlers attract hustlers, which is perhaps why Tim Eyman took a moment away from his latest initiative to eviscerate state and local government to hail the coming of Fox News' latest peddler of plots.

"Oh, you know we're heading into nut country," John F. Kennedy told wife Jacqueline as Air Force One landed in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

By contrast, this part of America is often dubbed the "Left Coast" by right-thinking Wall Street Journal editorial writers.

Still, there are plenty of "wing nuts" to give Beck a warm welcome. The private reception-with photos ($500) is sold out as well as the private reception-without-photos ($250) and the on-field seats with lunch ($100)."

At least it's all privately funded!! At the debut of Michael Moore's movie, Comrade Marcy Kaptur went as Moore's DATE!!! Man, are her arms even long enough to give him the obligatory reach around at the after party? Ugh!!

So the tea parties use "outrageous lies and scare tactics".

Could you please oh please teach our "unAmerican", "swastika holding", "angry mob" how to properly protest peacefully?

Wait... Wait I stand corrected.

The police overreacted and didn't arrest the vandals instead focusing on the peaceful protesters instead.

In case you didn't see the videos the "vandals" brought their own gas masks which they wore as they overturned trash bins and broke windows.

But according to the article it was the fault of the police because "was a too-aggressive posture that might have incited the crowds on Thursday. Rosenfeld, who was in Pittsburgh this week observing the protests, said police were unable to distinguish between peaceful protesters and the relatively few bent on causing trouble"

MikeyA

The Gadsden Flag was flying in Pittsburgh:

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

Yep

Starting with a march of about 2,000 people, the protests degenerated into running skirmishes with police.

Protesters smashed shop windows and threw rocks and bottles at police. Police responded with pepper gas, batons and by shooting pellet-filled" bean bags."

Jedi mind tricks...

"These arent the violent protestors you are looking for..."

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Yeah, I would say some of the police tactics would be considered over the top:

By midnight, hundreds of police in riot gear moved down Forbes Avenue. With no obvious protesters in sight, they sprayed pepper gas on passersby and even students looking down from the balconies of their residences above the avenue.

Can you imagine if this would have happened at one of the tea parties?

Pink Slip

LMAO....no I cant imagine Tea party attendee's throwing rocks and bottles...

Are there ANY cowardly violent protesters you wont defend?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Wow, it's as if you didn't even read the passage from the article. They weren't protesters--they were students and passersby.

Pink Slip

LOL

LOL Where is comic book guy when you need him. Worst argument ever!.

Yep. So 2000 is an inflated number? It was in reality 75 violent protestors and 1925 students and passersby.

Because.... That always happens.

I recommend everyone go to youtube and watch the videos taken by the protesters... excuse me... passersby. Watch how little they move. Watch how much they yell. In fact I didn't see one "passerby" actually passing by.

MikeyA

Huh? The article I posted mentioned a specific incident. It didn't say that everyone in Pittsburgh were 'passersby'.

Key word is "if". But the real reason is history. Youtube G20 and Seattle or London.

The tea parties never got violent and the town halls only did when the unions decided to show up. hmmmm... wonder why that was?

MikeyA

It's weird, I didn't get even one email from my leftist sources to attend a G20 protest.

Pink Slip

Yeah ....you missed a great opportunity to throw rocks at pigs and break windows of small business owners...

You would have fit right in...
