Jon Stewart fo Fox News: Go F*ck Yourselves!

In recent months Fox News has become the champion of the poor set-upon Average American Tea Bagger. They railed against the unfairness of "painting a broad brush", or "stereotyping" them as bigoted, angry, violent and racist. They defending them against the dread of "profiling"

But when it comes to stereotyping and profiling Liberals - not so much.



As documented by Rawstory:

A recent CBS/New York Times poll found that Tea Party members are better educated and more wealthy than the average American -- facts that Fox News was happy to report.

But Fox decided not report less attractive aspects of the same poll: 52 percent believed that too much has been made of the problems facing African-Americans and thirty percent think President Barack Obama was born in another country.

When it come to characterizing the entire Tea Party, Jon Stewart found himself in the odd position Thursday of agreeing with Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Bernie Goldberg.


Fox on the Tea Partiers...

"You cannot demonize any organization by the actions of a few in a demonstration," O'Reilly said on March 29.

"They are trying to marginalize them and smear a movement of great Americans that are expressing their views," Hannity said the same day.

"They're tarring the entire Tea Party movement and the Republican Party," Goldberg complained.

"Bernie Goldberg is right!" Stewart exclaimed. When it comes to generalizing, just "don't do it."


Fox on Liberals...

"The left in this country is invested in defeat in Iraq," said Cal Thomas.

"Liberals see just about everything through the prism of race," according to Goldberg.

"The left always paint Christians as hate mongers," Glenn Beck told O'Reilly.


To all this Stewart responded with "Go Fuck Yourselves!".

That CBS Poll also described Tea Partiers as....





More than half (54 percent) identify as Republicans, and another 41 percent say they are independents. Just five percent call themselves Democrats, compared to 31 percent of adults nationwide.

Nearly three in four describe themselves as conservative, and 39 percent call themselves very conservative. Sixty percent say they always or usually vote Republican. Forty percent say the United States needs a third party, while 52 percent say it does not.

Eighty-eight percent disapprove of President Obama's performance on the job, compared to 40 percent of Americans overall. While half of Americans approve of Mr. Obama's job performance, just seven percent of Tea Party supporters say he is doing a good job.

Asked to volunteer what they don't like about Mr. Obama, the top answer, offered by 19 percent of Tea Party supporters, was that they just don't like him. Eleven percent said he is turning the country more toward socialism, ten percent cited his health care reform efforts, and nine percent said he is dishonest.

Twenty-four percent of Tea Party supporters say it is sometimes justified to take violent action against the government. That compares to 16 percent of Americans overall who say violence against the government is sometimes justified.


But y'know these guy aren't potentially violent, y'know - only about twice as much as the general public is...

Here's another hypocrisy example feature Fox News Contributor Ann Coulter debating Aisha Tyler on CNN:



To Coulter the recent uptick in Political Violence is All Coming from the Left in support of this she has one example - the fight that occurred between members of SEIU and Tea Partier Kenneth Gadney during a ST. Louis Town Hall. I've seen the video of this and it's unclear exactly who attacked who and how this confrontation went down... but that not all that much when you contrast it to...

James Adkisson who shot and killed two people and wounder five others for the heinous crime of being Liberals.

The arrest of one man for Death Threats against Nancy Pelosi, and another for Death threats against Sen Patty Murray.

The Maine Right-Winger who planned to build a radiological dirty bomb.

James Von Brunn who shot and killed a guard at the Holocaust Museum.

Joe Stack who flew his plane into the Austin IRS Building.

The Hutaree Militia who had planned to kill police offices and judges.

Sometimes when something walks like a violent anti-American movement, and quacks like a violent anti-American movement, and TALKS like a violent anti-American movement... that's exactly what it is.

Jon Stewart Shows how Fox News supports Nazis

Fox thinks President Obama's nuclear arms reduction summit logo looks like a the crescent found on the flags of many Islamic nations. Good thing they didn't look at South Carolina's flag or the state sovereignty/secession flag or they might think Obama was the leader of the Confederacy.


Rep. Steve King Blows Up over his Justification of IRS Attack

Confronted by a Thinkprogress Blogger today over his rationization and justification of the Suicide Plane Attack by Joseph Stack against the IRS - Rep. Steve King blows his top.



Here's the transcript of what Rep King say when confronted with this...



TP: Do you think this attack, this terrorist attack, was motivated at all by a lot of the anti-tax rhetoric that’s popular in America right now?

KING: I think if we’d abolished the IRS back when I first advocated it, he wouldn’t have a target for his airplane. And I’m still for abolishing the IRS, I’ve been for it for thirty years and I’m for a national sales tax. [...] It’s sad the incident in Texas happened, but by the same token, it’s an agency that is unnecessary and when the day comes when that is over and we abolish the IRS, it’s going to be a happy day for America.

TP: So some of his grievances were legitimate?

KING: I don’t know if his grievances were legitimate, I’ve read part of the material. I can tell you I’ve been audited by the IRS and I’ve had the sense of ‘why is the IRS in my kitchen.’ Why do they have their thumb in the middle of my back. ... It is intrusive and we can do a better job without them entirely.


When asked directly if he thought the anti-tax rhetoric of groups like the Tea Party were responsible for the attack - he essentially said they were, and that the IRS needs to be abolished, clearly justifying the attack against them.

That's what he said, there's no denying it. His first thought at the time wasn't to be concerned with IRS workers and the lives which were at risk - it's was his own political anti-Tax Agenda!

Now he was confronted with his own words and his response was this...


TP: It is tax day and you justified the murder of American federal employees at CPAC.

KING: Are you accusing me of that? Are you accusing me of that? Turn that camera off. I’m not going to have those allegations. You accuse me of murder. That is despicable behavior.

TP: I’m sorry — I did not say that, I did not say that.

KING: That is despicable behavior for any American on this earth to do such a thing.

TP: The camera is off –

KING: We are done.


He didn't accuse you of murder Congressman King, he simply quoted paraphrased you, and he did so accurately fairly. (ed. King had a perfect chance, both times - to make the distinction that he didn't like the IRS but wasn't endorsing murder - he didn't) You had a chance to denounce a murderer, you had a chance to make a statement against violence - you chose instead to come up with reasons for why that violence might be JUSTIFIED. Period. End of Story.

Y'know what's "despicable" Congressman King?

You are.

Cavuto Confronts Coburn: Why so Mean to Poor Little Fox?

If there's one thing these FUXer's know how to do, it's whine and wimper when they get criticized like little prepubescent girls. Here Neil Cavuto asks Sen Tom Coburn why he said: "Don't be biased by Fox"?


After discussing Coburn's blocking of Unemployment Insurance, which he argues has to be "Paid For" even though Coburn didn't previously make this kind of argument when he voted for the $Trillion Bush Tax Cuts, Funding extensions for the unnecessary Iraq War or the $Trillion Medicare Part-D Prescription Drug Donut Hole, Cavuto finally gets to the point... Why did you single out Fox?

Unlike O'Reilly - who made worst persons for denying it - Fox actually did promulgate the LIE that people will be arrested if they refuse to purchase Health Insurance when in fact - there is no penalty.

SEC 5000A Subsection G (A) WAIVER OF CRIMINAL PENALTIES- In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.




At the end of this discussion Coburn actually makes a compelling argument that Conservatives need to fight for their convictions using the truth and facts, not lies and distortions. It's something that I think takes Cavuto back a bit, but it's something that needs to be said and repeated. The problem is that Conservatievs and Tea Partiers have dived so deeply into the Conspiracy Theory Woods with accusations that the President crafted th Nuclear Summit Logo to look like a Muslim Flag - instead of a like an ATOM - that's at this point they could find the truth with both hands and a GPS.

But I'm glad somebody gave them some Tough Love, they desperately need it.

Army Lt Col to be Court Martialed for being a Birther

http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2010/04/13/2267021.aspx

Army doctor Lt. Col. Terry Lakin believes Obama does not meet the constitutional requirements to be president and commander-in-chief, because he believes (incorrectly) that Obama wasn't born in the United States.

Lakin refused this week to report to Fort Campbell, KY for deployment to Afghanistan, but instead showed up at the Pentagon, where he was confronted by his brigade Commander Col. Gordon Roberts, a Vietnam Medal of Honor recipient.

Lakin was informed by Roberts that he would face court martial, and his Pentagon building pass and government laptop computer were seized.




This Army Lt. Col has refused a lawful order to deploy to Afghanistan because of his belief that the order is invalid since Barack Obama has not - in his view - supplied sufficient evidence of his native birth in the United States.

Crazy and insane though this may seem, this view according to recent polls seems to be shared by as many as 45% of Republicans.

I've been over this myself in exhuastive detail and this claim is total bunk.

Copy Provided by Obama

Showing the Folds.

The Raised Seal

Close Up of City of Birth

Unredacted Certification Number

Birth Announcement from Local Honolulu Paper filed by Obama's Grand Parents

As FactCheck.org has pointed out the Certification of Live Birth that Obama providing during the Presidential Campaign is perfectly legitimate, and has been validated by state officials - furthermore copies of the much vaunted "Long Form" that these people are clamoring for are not available under State Law.

Per Fact Check.

The document is a "certification of birth," also known as a short-form birth certificate. The long form is drawn up by the hospital and includes additional information such as birth weight and parents' hometowns. The short form is printed by the state and draws from a database with fewer details. The Hawaii Department of Health's birth record request form does not give the option to request a photocopy of your long-form birth certificate, but their short form has enough information to be acceptable to the State Department. We tried to ask the Hawaii DOH why they only offer the short form, among other questions, but they have not given a response.


Under Hawaii State law the Short form is sufficient to prove citizenship and for example, obtain a passport, which Obama's mother must have done when she moved the family temporarily to Indonesia.

Per Hawaiian law, Statue 338.13, any certified copies of the original document can serve the same purpose as the original document.

"(b) Copies of the contents of any certificate on file in the department, certified by the department shall be considered for all purposes the same as the original, subject to the requirements of sections 338-16, 338-17, and 338-18."

Usually the certification is stamped and signed on the lower reverse side of the document and says "I certify this is a true copy or abstract of the record on file in the Hawaii State Department of Health."


The stamp and signature on the back of Obama's certified copy is here:

Signature on the Back



This copy is certified and VALID, the requirement stated by this Lt. Col for a "Doctor signed form" is not required by the Constitution. It's completely made up.

It's rather sad that this soldier (and doctor) has chosen to throw away his career ove a phantasm, but what's even worse is that when he loses his case - and he certainly WILL lose just like Orly Taitz did - the estimated 45% of Republicans who still believe this drivel aren't likely to see the truth, they're likely to believe this man to be some kind of Constitutional Martyr, when what truly he is - is deeply misguided and foolish.

Also I continue to wonder if these people would be making this demand of a President John McCain, particularly since he himself was born in Panama and only has citizenship through his parents.

New Tea Party Seditionist Army Forming in Oklahoma

State Senators in Oklahoma are authorizing the formation of a New State Militia with the specific intent of protecting "States Rights" against the Power of Gross Federal Encroachment and Overreach - like Health Care.

The Associated Press reports that Oklahoma tea party leaders, “frustrated by recent political setbacks,” are working with right-wing Republicans in the Oklahoma legislature to create a new “volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.” State Sen. Randy Brogdon (R-OK) and State Rep. Charles Key (R-OK) have met with tea party leaders, like J.W. Berry of the Tulsa-based OKforTea group, to plan legislation for a state-authorized militia.


And to form that Militia they've turned to a Turner Diaries Fanboy Tea Bagger? IMO there's nothing in this picture that doesn't stink.

Keith's Report on this:




From Hardball:



Brogdon on the Ed Show:



What Brogdon says when he's not on the Tee Vee Machine.

The founding fathers “were not referring to a turkey shoot or a quail hunt. They really weren’t even talking about us having the ability to protect ourselves against each other,” Brogdon said. “The Second Amendment deals directly with the right of an individual to keep and bear arms to protect themselves from an overreaching federal government.


Frankly speaking Bogdon is absolutely correct here. In Federalist #46 Madison described exactly what the 2nd Amendment was truly about:

The only refuge left for those who prophesy the downfall of the State governments is the visionary supposition that the federal government may previously accumulate a military force for the projects of ambition. The reasonings contained in these papers must have been employed to little purpose indeed, if it could be necessary now to disprove the reality of this danger. That the people and the States should, for a sufficient period of time, elect an uninterupted succession of men ready to betray both; that the traitors should, throughout this period, uniformly and systematically pursue some fixed plan for the extension of the military establishment; that the governments and the people of the States should silently and patiently behold the gathering storm, and continue to supply the materials, until it should be prepared to burst on their own heads, must appear to every one more like the incoherent dreams of a delirious jealousy, or the misjudged exaggerations of a counterfeit zeal, than like the sober apprehensions of genuine patriotism. Extravagant as the supposition is, let it however be made.

Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. Those who are best acquainted with the last successful resistance of this country against the British arms, will be most inclined to deny the possibility of it. Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.


The 2nd Amendment is about Revolution, not Duck Hunting.

I happen to believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment and it's need to stand as the Ultimate Deterrent against an out of control government, but the problem is determining when exactly we have reached the neccessary threshold where States must take up violent arms against the agents of the Federal Government due to it's broad "overreach"?

When have we reached the Succession/Revolution point?

Where exactly is that line in the sand?

Did we consider this when it was revealed that the Bush Administration was very clearly warned, including the likely method and potential targets, about the impending 9-11 attacks but did NOTHING to prevent them?

Did we consider this when the Bush Administration illegally bypassed the FISA Court and instigated warrantless wiretaps of every U.S. Soldier and Journalist abroad, as well as any communication to and from the U.S.?

Did we consider this when the Bush Administration Willfully Lied to the American People and the World about Saddam's WMD and connection with Al Qeada in order to fraudulently initiate an unneccessary war in Iraq?

Did we consider this when the Bush Administration admitted to a campaign of worldwide kidnapping and torture targeting persons, many of whom eventually turned out to be completely innocent of any connection to terrorism or wrongdoing?

No, it seems to me we didn't. And the reason we didn't is because our Democratic process hadn't yet completely collapsed - and it still hasn't - so extreme measures such as these simply weren't needed.

But now that the Obama Administration has passed Health Care Reform in order to bring affordable coverage to 35 Million Americans - some people are literally up in arms about it. But then again maybe it's not about what this Administration has done or hasn't done, maybe it's simply about WHO is at the head of this Administration... via Thinkprogress.

Berry, the tea party leader who first solicited support for the militia, has posted rants against President Obama: the “Muslim President” — a “reincarnation of Pol Pot” who is trying to imprison Americans for resisting health reform. One ominous posting from Berry says that his militia should "launch a thousand guerrilla attacks on the plans that these people have to ruin us and our country.

Both Berry and Brogdon lean heavily on far right propaganda and media outlets to fuel their conspiracy theories. Berry frequently cites conservative news outlets like CNS and notes that he draws inspiration from the white supremacist thriller The Turner Diaries. Despite his extremism, Berry has met with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and other members of the Oklahoma Republican delegation, and counts them as “rock solid.” Brogdon, whose states’ rights resolution was drafted by corporate lobbyists opposed to health reform, has been endorsed by the lobbyist-run Tea Party Express and has appeared on on Fox News, Alex Jones’ radio show, and at a Glenn Beck rally.


So here we have a Turner Diaries reading Tim McVeigh Wannabe Beckified Conspiracy Theorist Nutball who has compared Obama to a Mass Murderer and openly suggested guerrilla attacks against the government - wanting to get the State of Oklahoma to support his own private little Army of Nutballs in opposition to the Duly Elected President, and the duly passed laws of Congress.

And he's Getting that Support.

Like I said, nothing about this doesn't stink.

Breitbart Owes Trumka & UNNCF $100,000 - Pay Up Dead Beat

In this video, shot at Harvard during a forum featuring AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka being harangued by Andrew Brietbart of BigGovernment.com, the people that brought us the fraudulent ACORN Videos.



In this clip Breitbart presents a long rambling question to Trumpka in which he cites the recent spitting and N-Word incident at the Capital as being "questionable"...

Breitbart: I've offered $100,000 to anyone who heard or has tape of the incident...


He's put forth this overture despite the fact that the claim wasn't just made by Lewis, there were other Congressmen and even Reporters from CNN there who heard many different epithets thrown at Democrats and supporters of the Health Care Bill.

"I haven't seen heard anything like this in more than 40 years, maybe 45." Lewis said. "Since the march from Selma to Montgomery really."

"Yeah, but it's okay," Lewis added. "I've faced this before. So, it reminded me of the 60's. There's a lot of downright hate and anger and people are just being downright mean."

The incident was confirmed by Rep. Andre Carson, D-Indiana, who was walking with Lewis at the time. Protesters were yelling, "'kill the bill, kill the bill' and the 'N' word several times," Carson said.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, released a statement late Saturday saying he too was called the "N" word as he walked to the Capitol for a vote and that he was spat on by one protestor who was arrested by U.S. Capitol Police. Cleaver declined to press charges against the man, the statement said.

Protesters also hurled anti-gay comments at Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, who is openly gay, as he left the same health care meeting that Lewis attended in a House office building.

A CNN producer overheard the word "faggot" yelled at Frank several times in the lobby of the Longworth building. Frank said he heard someone yell "homo" at him.

"I'm disappointed," Frank said. "There's an unwillingness to be civil."


Let me again point out that the guy who did the spitting was arrested. He's not a phantasm from the mind of some so-called "Race Hustlers", it happened. Capital Police officers witnessed it and took action.

But Breitbart doesn't believe it. He wants "proof", meanwhile he goes on to argue that the REAL victims of Hatred and Violence aren't Democrats, it's the Tea Partiers themselves.

Here's some video from the Great Egg-tastrophe:


So, I'm not really down with the Great Egging - but if anything is clear from this video - it's that Breitbart is a chronic whiner!

You can't handle a tossed egged? Let me go back to what John Lewis said again...

"Yeah, but it's okay," Lewis added. "I've faced this before.


"It's Okay"... not exactly "I'm just standing here and people want to do violence to me." Hey, at Selma people did do violence to John Lewis, he was nearly beaten to death on the Edmon Pettus Bridge in Selma simply for marching in support of the right to Vote - a mere 90 plus years after the ratification of the 15th Amendment which supposedly guaranteed that right.

But y'know, it's not like it was anything important.

Certainly not as important as a Tea Party Rally. Breitbart goes on, and on, talking about some Tea bag associate of his being called the "N-Word" by "SEIU Thugs" and finally asks his questions: Do you condemn this violence as well as the so-called violence against Democrats?

Well, duh!

Unlike Breitbart, Trumpka does not attempt to re-write reality and claim that the bus didn't get egged, or that the scuffle between SEIU members and Tea Partiers didn't happen last August in St. Louis (documented by this video here).



The fight did happen, exactly who attacked who isn't clear and the cross claims and counter claims are pretty fierce. Be that as it may - no one has said they support this - yet that hasn't stopped repeated Tea Party claims that this incident was somehow part of a Massive Plot by ACORN and OBAMA to intimidate the Tea Partiers.

Yeah, right...

Anywho, the real kicker comes when Trumka finally gets a chance to answer Breitbart and says - He was THERE when John Lewis was called the N-Word - He HEARD IT HIMSELF as did other AFL-CIO members who were their in support of the Health Care Bill.

Trumka: I watched them spit at people - I heard them call John Lewis the N-word!

Breitbart: So you heard that?

Trumka: We did hear that. Violence by any person is wrong.


So does Breibart turnaround and say - "I'm sorry, I was wrong - there rally are some bigots in the Tea Party Ok, Here's your $100,000!"?

FRACK NO!

Breitbart: You have no evidence that these people expressed racism or homophobia.

Trumka: Really? I witnessed it - I Saw it. That IS evidence.



So let's get this straight now, a black guy Tea Partiers gets into a scuffle with a couple other black guys (from SEIU) at a Town Hall and clearly it's no ones fault but the SEUI "Thugs?" I point out the fact that the guys who fought with Gadney are black because it does - rightly or wrongly - change the context if any "N-Words" were thrown around, even though when I listened to the tape I didn't hear any.

Must not have happened then eh, Andrew?

There is no doubt, that it has been Pro-Health Care Democrats who have borne the brunt of threats and epithets thrown their way by Tea Partiers, and generally not the other way around.

Clearly there may have been a couple incidents but it doesn't really compare with this:





(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

CALLER: I ain‘t getting the (EXPLETIVE DELETED) health insurance, that (EXPLETIVE DELETED). Don‘t tell me I got to get some (EXPLETIVE DELETED) health insurance. I ain‘t paying no (EXPLETIVE DELETED) a fine. Tell that (EXPLETIVE DELETED) he can come put my (EXPLETIVE DELETED) in jail if he don‘t like it. (EXPLETIVE DELETED) worthless (EXPLETIVE DELETED), all them other (EXPLETIVE DELETED) that voted for that (EXPLETIVE DELETED) Obama and all them white trash honkies that voted for that (EXPLETIVE DELETED) communist socialist stuff. Dumb mother (EXPLETIVE DELETED).

I ain‘t getting the (EXPLETIVE DELETED) mandatory health insurance son of a (EXPLETIVE DELETED) mother (EXPLETIVE DELETED) bunch of (EXPLETIVE DELETED) white trash honkies, son of a (EXPLETIVE DELETED) communists voting for this (EXPLETIVE DELETED).

I ain‘t going to fight no (EXPLETIVE DELETED) war, I‘m not going to be forced to do something I don‘t want to do. So (EXPLETIVE DELETED) all y‘all (EXPLETIVE DELETED). You, John Lewis, you (EXPLETIVE DELETED) worthless, communist (EXPLETIVE DELETED).

(END AUDIO CLIP)


The guy who spoke these words is in jail now for threatening the life of Senator Patty Murray - and I notice that in the midst of his rant he called John Lewis the N-Word!.

Call me silly but I think that's "evidence", just as what Richard Trumka witnessed with his own eyes and ears is "evidence". And what other members of Congress heard is evidence, and what the CNN producer heard is "evidence"

The fact that you can't clearly hear one shout in a 48 sec video of John Lewis walking near the Capital isn't proof either way, that walk took more than 48 seconds. One thing we should all know from the Great O'Keefe ACORN SCAM Videos is that sometimes edited videos don't show you everything. But you don't have to hear the naked bigotry and ignorance coming from Tea Partiers, you can SEE It.



No one is saying you can't justifiably criticize this bill, or that you can't criticize the President. No on is arguing from the Pro-Health Care side that unprovoked violence is *EVER* justified, but neither are we trying to distort reality by denying that what has occurred - really did occur even when it may make our side look bad.

You can't say that about the Tea Partiers.

Unfortunately Breitbart's call to "Denounce Violence" is sadly one-sided and therefore suspect. His efforts are clearly an attempt to shame and stifle one section of the debate (the winning section actually) while bolstering his efforts to promote the other side and generally attack Democrats.

Democrats don't HAVE to resort to violence, we won at the election booth - and we won on the Health Care Vote, Fair and Square.

The fact is that standing against violence means standing against everyones violence, not just those people you disagree with - it means standing against the violence of people who are on your own side too!
