Last month I did a piece called The "Progressive" Fight To Save "The Force" In Wisconsin, and a follower on Twitter read it and made a comment that sort of inspired this.
Liberals shouldn't get TOO upset about this one.Add a comment
The ability to morally equivocate has got to be the greatest mental gymnastics trick the left has in it's arsenal of "intellectual arguments." If something is indefensible all they have to do is point out something else that is indefensible, and then they don't ever have to think about how evil is always the ONLY one peeing in your coffee.
It's pretty awesome, especially if you get pulled over by a liberal cop...you can talk your way out of a speeding ticket by reminding him that HE broke the speed limit to pull you over.
In the last generation Muslim extremism has gone nuclear, and now one guy wants to have a conversation about it, but liberals don't want to hear it...
For Representative Peter T. King, as he seizes the national spotlight this week with a hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims, it is the most awkward of résumé entries. Long before he became an outspoken voice in Congress about the threat from terrorism, he was a fervent supporter of a terrorist group, the Irish Republican Army.

When I was in college there was a popular game we played on the network in my dorms called Counterstrike. There were two teams, terrorists and counter-terrorists, basically each team would duke it out while terrorists either tried to blow up something or prevent the counter-terrorists from rescuing their hostages.
Sometimes I played on the terrorist team. Also, when I was a teenager I used to say things that were cool were "da bomb." My wife has dried her hair by wrapping a towel around her head.
So I really can't criticize Muslim terrorists either.
What if King didn't support the IRA? What if a different congressman, with a reputation that's more clean than Michael Moore's dinner plate, called for the hearings? Would it be ok to talk about Muslim terrorism then?
What if we went with Biden's suggestion, which he uses when he wishes to remain anonymous, to not make it so obvious that we're talking about them by switching the first and last letters of "Muslim?"
When will the left figure out that hypocrisy makes a person a hypocrite, but it doesn't make them wrong? Making Peter King's wrong-headed support for the IRA the reason we shouldn't talk about murder in the name of Islam is idiotic on its face, to say nothing of it being no consolation to the victims of either one of them.
In fairness the Times article does acknowledge that there is a world of difference between Al Qaeda and the IRA, but then essentially concludes that difference is meaningless after an unfortunate typo involving some terrorist named O'Sama.Add a comment
If there was any wonder how truly $#$%ed we are when it comes to fixing our addiction to spending money Harry Reid answers that question once and for all...
“The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1, eliminates National Public Broadcasting," said Reid in a floor speech. "It eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts. These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

Not exist? Tens of thousands of people would apparently disappear if there wasn't taxpayer funded cowboy poetry? What happens? Would they become unborn? Is the GOP trying to abort cowboy poets?
Wait a sec, tens of thousands of people show up to this thing? Are any of them actual cowboys that write poetry, or is it like the benefits of ObamaCare and its all make believe characters in one of the poems?
This is hard to believe, I mean, President Obama can't even get 100 high schools to beg him for an appearance at their graduation ceremonies. 100 times more people gather to find out what rhymes with cowboy?
Here's an idea! Its a win win, Reid can still have his festival, and Republicans don't have to be the bad guys for nailing its coffin shut. Send Obama there to read some of the poems.
Boy wouldn't that be fun? We could place bets on what he would do to embarrass the country next...here's my prediction...

So apparently do their executives! Nothing makes a man sing better than a juicy five million dollar carrot being served as dessert I guess.
I'm relieved that NPR is appalled by recent comments caught on tape of Former Senior Executive Robert Schiller calling conservatives everything but Satan's barnacles. I would be appalled too if I got caught with my hand in the liberal bias fat free cookie jar.
Between what they did to Juan Williams and now this maybe liberals have a crush on Allah.
One thing is certain, NPR is not appalled about anything. They're embarrassed. Executives with five million dollar checks being dangled in front of their noses don't tow any line that wasn't handed to them at some point by someone higher up.
Which begs the question, other than a thorough butt sniffing from Robert Schiller what would Muslims get if they gave a REAL five million dollar check to NPR?
Whatever they want?
Another one knocked out of the park from YouTube user Battlefield315.
A couple of months ago I was flipping through channels and came across this panel discussion on CNN. I caught it near the end so I had no idea what they were talking about.
I did, however, nearly hurl after hearing some idiot celebrity tart on the panel say that she was a progressive, thus SHE believed in "progress." Right, as opposed to everyone else on the planet who isn't her intellectual clone. WE all wake up every morning wondering how we can bring the world to apocalyptic destruction.
It's a wonder liberals don't resolve in one of their meetings to just don capes, they go on enough about themselves saving the world. Now they believe they have a monopoly on "progress."
When I refer to "progressives" in my posts I always try to make sure there are quotes, because that label is based entirely on their say so. If liberalism was really so self evident in its righteousness they wouldn't need to run from it.
They want to be "progressive?" Fine, from now on I'm going to start doing more than just use quotes to point out the absurdity of this notion by pointing out their only real contribution to it...
In California we have similar signs for illegal immigrants, so it's almost the same thing...
Wisconsin keeps their eyes peeled for the politicians, we look out for their constituents.
I don't normally (or ever) do this, but I got an idea to add to it to make the whole thing a bit more...comprehensive for road safety sake.
Protesters in Madison have "aroused a sleeping giant" in the national fight for workers' rights, filmmaker Michael Moore told thousands at the Capitol Square on Saturday, as rallies opposing Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposals wrapped up their third week....
"America is not broke ... Wisconsin is not broke," Moore said. "The only thing that's broke is the moral compass of the rulers."

A "sleeping giant" was aroused?!? I'm confused, I'll explain why in Pulp Fiction style:
First of all, Boobs...check...liberal ideology....check...did I not just say a fat lady is singing?
Second, assuming his skin down there didn't already naturally crawl up into himself and connect with his newly lady parts (as clearly stated as a medical side effect when one registers Democrat) wouldn't a lack of circulation have caused it to fall off a long time ago?
Thirdly, for the sake of argument how could Moore possibly even know he's "aroused"? I'm just sayin'...when I come home from the grocery store and I insist on bringing all the bags in on the first trip my fingers become NUMB....
Isn't that what it would be like to be Michael Moore's penis?
Being a dick doesn't mean you get to pretend you still have one
And what's this crap about America not being broke?

At the very least he's definitely jealous of the wealth of praise the one who does all the work is getting, he must believe that if it got spread around it would be good for everybody...
Maybe I'm just overly sensitive because my wife just gave birth...*sniff*Add a comment
