Occupy DC helps the Koch brothers, shows what democracy actually looks like: a mob - 11/06/11

The Washington DC branch of Occupy Wall Street appears to be the dimmest and least emotionally-controlled of their various chapters. And, that's really saying something. For examples, see the videos below. In the first, they block a woman in a wheelchair from leaving a building. In the second, they use little kids as human shields.

Rightwing's muted response to Brown signing unpopular, anti-American immigration law - 10/09/11

If California governor Jerry Brown signed a bill that dared raise taxes on multi-billionaires by even a few pennies, you can bet that rightwing internet activists would be up in arms about it.

Yet another example of Teaparty being useful idiots for the Koch brothers? (Madison union protests) - 02/19/11

Are the tea parties useful idiots for an attempt by the billionaire Koch family to fight unionization in order to increase their profits? The latest example of the Koch family pushing an agenda that helps their bottom line and getting help from the teapartiers in that endeavor comes from the protests between public sector unions and Republican governor Scott Walker in Madison, Wisconsin. I haven't been closely following the issue, but at the very least it's clear that the Kochs are attempting to take advantage of the issue to push their agenda. And, pushing that agenda would help the bottom...

Jared Loughner: anti-Bush, pro-small government? Intellectually dishonest Tea Party defenders - 01/17/11

Enablers of the tea parties have, of course, been completely intellectually dishonest when attempting to defend themselves against claims that Jared Loughner is linked to them in one way or another. One example is here, and today's example involves the New York Times piece "Looking Behind the Mug-Shot Grin" (link). Based on the relevant portion of that article [1], Loughner sounds a bit like a libertarian or perhaps anarchist [2]. Instead of considering the whole of the relevant portion of the NYT article, Tea Party enablers stop at the part about not liking George W Bush, attempting to...

Tea Party "Patriots" mostly silent about anti-American DREAM Act (and rightwing bloggers too) - 12/07/10

The "patriots" in the tea parties aren't exactly going all out to oppose the anti-American DREAM Act amnesty. The loudest voices against the Obama administration have mostly gone silent against an amnesty which could cover between one to two million illegal aliens and which would allow those illegal aliens covered by it to take college resources away from their fellow citizens.

Is the SEIU campaigning with foreign money and money from illegal aliens? - 10/28/10

The Service Employees International Union might be funneling money from foreign citizens and illegal aliens in the U.S. into U.S. elections. According to this, the SEIU claims to have spent several million dollars more in the 2008 campaign cycle than their political organization - Committee on Political Education ("COPE") - announced as expenditures: In May 2009, the Wall Street Journal reported that SEIU officials bragged they had spent $85 million during the 2008 campaign season, making them the the single biggest contributor to either party in the last election cycle. Yet according to the...

Rep. Bob Etheridge grabs arm of College Republican asking dumb question (Breitbart) - 06/14/10

The video at shows a college student - presumably a College Republican - trying to engage Rep. Bob Etheridge (Democrat of North Carolina) in conversation on a Washington DC sidewalk. Rather than pausing to speak to him, Etheridge grabs his arm and then puts him in a horse collar, repeatedly asking, "who are you?" The video is currently linked by Drudge, and Glenn Reynolds [1] and Andrew Breitbart [2] [3] [4] among others are currently promoting it. Whether Breitbart was involved in making the video isn't clear, but it's in the Youtube account belonging to his associate...

Andrew Marcus and Andrew Breitbart support the DREAM Act (through their own stupidity) - 03/05/10

I used to think that Andrew Breitbart was a bright guy who was laughing behind the backs of the absolute idiots that he publishes at BigGovernment, BigHollywood, and his other sites. Now, I'm not so sure. A recent post from Andrew Marcus (link at [1], bio at [2], linked by Glenn Reynolds [3]) has BigGovernment acting like the far-left and racial power groups when it comes to concerns about illegal aliens being able to attend colleges at the in-state rate. And, unlike the far-left, they don't know what they're doing: they're helping the far-left because they're absolute idiots. At the post,...

Andrew Breitbart unintentionally exposes the right (Max Blumenthal confrontation) - 02/21/10

The video at shows Andrew Breitbart confronting Max Blumenthal at the recent CPAC event, and Breitbart's performance has received rave reviews [1].

Tea party intellectual Dana Loesch: if you disagree with the tea parties, you're a socialist - 01/02/10

Over at Big Government, tea parties organizer Dana Loesch offers "Its a Wrap: The Most Underreported Stories of 2009" [sic; URL at 1] which, among others, contains this jaw-droppingly stupid paragraph: The most misreported and misunderstood thing about the tea party is its political leanings. The tea party has no political leaning. It stands straight for limited government, low taxes, and liberty for all. Disagreement with those tenets is an accidental admission of socialism on the part of the antagonist. The beauty of the tea party movement is that it is independent and thus a true check and...

WaPo corrects Darryl Fears, Carol Leonnig race card smear of ACORN sting videomakers - 09/22/09

On 9/18/09, Darryl Fears and Carol Leonnig of the Washington Post offered "The $1,300 Mission to Fell ACORN/Duo in Sting Video Say Their Effort Was Independent" (link), an attempt by the WaPo to undercut the recent undercover reporting videos showing highly questionable activity by ACORN workers. Now, the WaPo has corrected a smear that Fears and Leonnig put in the article: This article about the community organizing group ACORN incorrectly said that a conservative journalist targeted the organization for hidden-camera videos partly because its voter-registration drives bring Latinos and...

Breitbart scoop: Buffy Wicks? Ari Emanuel? NEA? Patrick Gaspard? Hollywood? - 09/20/09

Andrew Breitbart is teasing a major story to appear on Monday and he's hinted that it will come from "left field".

"Big Hollywood" review: not "quite" there yet - 01/06/09

Drudge link target and co-starter of the Huffington Post Andrew Breitbart has started a new subsite called "Big Hollywood" (link). Go ahead and click the link, he probably needs the traffic more than I do.
