All three surround themselves with thugs. 2nd Amendment solutions anyone?

  1. A disgusting turn of events. Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin stoke the flames.

    I know I will be accused of playing the race card but I believe 50 years from now historians will say that America elected its first black President before it was truly ready to have a black President.


    • Rutherford, I disagree.

      Jackie Robinson was the first black major league baseball player, a status almost as high-profile as being the POTUS. I wouldn’t say that America “wasn’t ready” for blacks in baseball at that time – it’s just that someone had to go first and take the inevitable heat, as Robinson did with tremendous courage and grace.

      America would never be ready for a black ANYTHING unless someone goes first. America was definitely ready for a black president. We voted for him.

      I don’t think that the Tea Party is ALL about racism. A lot of it is, but it’s also the result of hateful right-wing rhetoric and propaganda. The “take our country back” mentality, the “don’t tread on me” sentiments.


    • I’m not ready to wait until the bigots are ok with it.


    • Of course you are right. Someone has to be the trailblazer but it just gets very depressing when you’re in the midst of it.

      I absolutely don’t think the Tea Party is all about racism but part of their getting their country back involves the good old days when the President was white and we didn’t have a female Speaker of the House and an Hispanic Supreme Court Justice. Things have changed way too fast for them and they want a course correction pronto.


    • Short term they may get one….long term they are history. What is it 2040 when the typical voter is non-white? Much sooner in Arizona – 2020.


  2. The HEAT is up.. who is instigating all of this stuff.. hmmm. I have a question on the first vid.. Why was she wearing a BLOND wig? And with the second vid.. why was the perp resisting arrest?? Was he on drugs..

    To illustrate Fascism.. you must go to the core.. review HISTORY..

    Tomorrow.. The Greeks celebrate OXI day..

    • A woman gets the crap beaten out of her by thugs, and all you want to know about it is why she was wearing a WIG?

      Good grief….


    • Don’t defend facists…. there is a teabagger pattern and it’s not pretty.

      Last time I knew wearing a wig was legal. The mugging was premeditated – his words on the video prove it. She did nothing to “earn” that. The guy has criminal charges pending – and rightly so. Paul has fired him – but not apologized – figures.

      The reporter in Alaska was illegally “arrested” by hired thugs – one a serving US military – illegal, one a winger militia member. The police released him. At a public politcal event at a public school you cannot arrest reporters. The wingers like news control – they cannot stand the truth. Luckily Miller is sinking fast – he will come in 3rd.


    • I saw the New York Times.. and also looked at the article.. I am not denying that the moron kicked her in the head.. I am asking Why did he single her out??? Moreover, was he arrested.. Did she file an assault charge on him..

      I see these things at ALL types of gatherings. You have a Moron in every crowd. Even at a high school football game.

      The question one should address.. is where is all this ‘fascist’/socialism stuff coming from.. and WHY?? => Media only puts out what is GOOD TV..

      I just saw that our Potus is going to be on Jon Stewart.. well, now.. that is one way of addressing the masses.. We have the Yahoo comic satirists kicking out NEWS and we are listening to them. duh..


    • That moron was a Paul campaign employee. Yes charges were filed. The crime is on video – whoops.


    • Blue, Blue, Blue…

      It’s not nice to blame the victim.


  3. “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” – Attributed to Sinclair Lewis, apparently incorrectly.

    “The really dangerous American fascists,” (VP Henry) Wallace wrote (in 1944), “are not those who are hooked up directly or indirectly with the Axis. The FBI has its finger on those. The dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.”

    In this, Wallace was using the classic definition of the word “fascist” – the definition Mussolini had in mind when he claimed to have invented the word. (It was actually Italian philosopher Giovanni Gentile who wrote the entry in the Encyclopedia Italiana that said: “Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” Mussolini, however, affixed his name to the entry, and claimed credit for it.)

    As the 1983 American Heritage Dictionary noted, fascism is: “A system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with belligerent nationalism.”

    • Your post is correct.. but when they LOSE control. you get RIOTS.. CRIME. the whole enchilada goes poof.. Don’t think it will not happen here. Just wait until the dollar collapses.. There are rumors out there that the FED is creating another housing bubble.. I think those rumors are justified. Like I said.. what good is Health Care, if you don’t have a place to live….


  4. ooops.. that anon was ME.. I keep forgetting to log on to this thing.. sorry.


  5. Fascist=bully


    • Some are certainly dangerous – most are like East German border dogs – all bark – but cowards.

    • okay.. here is a tit for tat..

      http://www.thedailybeast.com/big-fat-story/2009-07-16/the-new-democratic-bullies

      everything has to be level on this forum right..

      All of these folks have POWER.. I think we should make the FED smaller. Get rid of Ben.. and income tax. put in Fair tax.. for everyone..

      Let Americans keep most of what they earn. Keep FED’s nose out of business.

      But nooooo. It’s all about power. Control. there are two classes in this country.. Washington DC.. and then US. We support them. They don’t do anything for US..


    • You do know, don’t you, that your “democratic bullies” link is from July 2009.

      I don’t recall any tea party morons getting their heads stomped.


  6. The American taxpayers got their HEADS stomped on.. and then some.
