Progressives and fringe (MSM) media ignore their own double standard again

Woohooo 100th post, and my birthday yesterday!  Been a good week and month (thanks Billy Boy for all the hits two days ago).  Now on to the brain dumping.

I wrote about something similar awhile ago, so if you like here is the link.

So, if you believe the fringe media, including sites like the Huffington Post, and Media Matters, then Glenn Beck and the Tea Parties are violent, or inciting violence.  Nancy Pelosi cried at a press conference when comparing the words of the Tea Parties to those leading up to the murder of Harvey Milk.  Bill Clinton has even had the gall to suggest that the Tea Parties could lead to another Timothy McVeigh.

So, I expected them to come out harsh on one of their own when this podcaster actually used references to violence, some might say inciting it, against wall street.  This clown, David Plotz, said:

“And we shouldn’t talk to them, try to persuade them.  We should burn them down. We should go after them with pitchforks, knives, guns, clubs we find, mace – anything, because it’s appalling. You only need to read the story that ProPublica did about the hedge fund Magnetar and what they did or Michael Lewis’ ‘The Big Short’ or these stories about Goldman to realize these guys are corrupt.”

Doesn’t Plotz see the irony of his statement?  What’s more appalling, scamming people out of money, or talking about taking away someone else’s most fundamental right (life)?  Where are the tears Nancy?  Where’s the consternation Bill?  (You know it was your administration that McVeigh was mad at right?)  It’s funny, when Glenn says ‘non-violence’ on a daily basis to his audience, and never says anything about actually hurting anyone, he is deemed to be inciting violence.  When Tea Parties gather, with zero arrests so far, they are deemed violent.  When they have incitement right in front of them…nothing, nada, zilch.

This leads to another example.  Recently a very controversial law was passed in Arizona to allow police to uphold federal law that the federal government is failing to uphold.  You must have heard about it.  I am on the fence on this one.  This law could be abused, but again, it’s already federal law and they don’t abuse it.  Hell, they don’t even enforce it.  That’s not what I want to talk about though.  I want to talk about the protests.  The violent protests.  Again where’s the progressives on this one?  Where’s Pelosi’s tears?  I mean, the protesters used swastikas, shouldn’t that rate them as ‘astro-turf’ and at least elicit a tear?

You have a protest in which protesters are throwing bottles, rocks, and other unidentifiable objects at police, and the fringe media just touts it as people angry for a good reason.  Then you have a protest in which protesters are…well standing there, singing, talking, sometimes shouting, and no arrests, and the fringe media accuses them of violence.  Can you tell which one is which?  Probably not if you watch MSNBC.  The first group are protesters in Arizona, the second, Tea Parties.  Would it surprise you to know that there weren’t ANY police that I could see at the local Tea Party rally in Peoria?  Well, not if you read my post about it but work with me here.  Local news estimates that nearly 500 gathered on the riverfront, and not one cause for alarm.  There were even minorities present, and no one broke out in a racial fueled fight!  I even saw an Obama supporter, wearing an Obama tee-shirt and riding an electric bike!  He left alive, just amazing, I think I even saw him talking civilly with lots of Tea Party protesters.

Seriously people!  Wake up!  The fringe media, and it’s offshoot bloggers are lying to you.  They aren’t journalists anymore, they have no idea what their jobs really are.  They have no concept of free press, or journalistic integrity.  You even have citizen journalists lying about the Tea Parties (yeah I mean you Billy).  Not only do we need to start reforming how Washington works but we need to start demanding the media fix itself.  Call them out on their bias, no matter which news organization.  If Fox reports something unfairly call them on it, but don’t ignore all the others that clearly have their noses right in Obama’s backside!

Congress’ Halloween Surprise

Sorry for the delay in new posts, I have been a bit under the weather since the weekend.  I wanted to write about this earlier in the week, but just couldn’t make myself do it with my exploding sinuses and all.  Well, now that the pleasantries are over, here is some news that seems to have been buried by the main stream…I mean fringe media.  Come November 1st, unless the President signs a resolution to completely defund ACORN, that organization will again be able to collect federal funds, i.e. tax dollars.  Here is where you can read the specifics about what really happened, and what it means in the future.

Crazy right?  Imagine my surprise, because the fringe media told us that ACORN was defunded in a sweeping bipartisan vote in the house and the senate.  They left out the part that it was only for a month.  According to Congresswoman Bachmann it doesn’t even take an act of congress to defund ACORN, just a decision from the President.  Now we should be asking ourselves why isn’t he doing this?  Does he not know that he has that power?  Does he know, but since he has buddies at ACORN he isn’t going to do it?  I think they were hoping we would forget about ACORN after a month and once they started receiving funds again no one would notice.  Thanks to one Congresswoman that stood up and told us the truth for once.
