An example of rightwing blogger incompetence (Tim Scott as a token) - 12/19/12

... peekURL.com/zN2ECcR ) * The thoughts of Gateway Pundit are limited to: "Of course, it’s OK for liberals to call blacks “tokens” as long as they are Republicans. Disgusting." ( peekURL.com/znac4SM ) * The more upscale but no less incompetent Ricochet offers "The Grey Lady Offers Up a Racist Inanity" by Peter Robinson which just links to the next post ( peekURL.com/zsWmSfF ) * The closest to an...

"Mitt Romney, anti-gay bully" or "How Obama will be reelected" - 05/10/12

Earlier today, the Washington Post published allegations that Mitt Romney was a bully back in prep school (link). I didn't read the story, but that's not what this post is about. Instead, this is a meta post: the WaPo's story is yet another example of how the establishment media is going to help Barack Obama be reelected. The media will publish or broadcast story after story just like the current...

Two examples of conservative failure (CPAC, rap, Crowder, Reynolds, V. Jackson) - 02/11/12

... group or not. 2. Jim Hoft (aka Gateway Pundit) seems more naive than evil, but he's not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed nor does he have much regard for accuracy (such as writing posts containing false information or not updating posts that have since been shown to have factually-inaccurate components). 3. I won't go so easy on Glenn Reynolds; see the link for much, much more. 4. It's not...

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

... Events (checked: front page) * Gateway Pundit * Ace Mu Nu If that changes I'll provide an update. If you want it to change and you want conservative activists to cover important issues, let them know what you think. UPDATE: I corrected a typo: "at the expense of American citizens" was "at the expense of foreign citizens". And, about 30 hours after posting this, just two sites in the last list...

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

... interview: peekurl.com/v9LhdhK ), Gateway Pundit, and Herman Cain ( peekURL.com/vhZ64cs ). Meanwhile, Glenn Reynolds is going all out (instapundit.com/115329, instapundit.com/115324, instapundit.com/115278 and probably more). On the one hand, unions are somewhat of a negative force in the U.S. because most of them support illegal immigration, with groups like the Service Employees International...

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

... into making him a liberal: * Gateway Pundit offers "Finally We Know What Drove Insane Left-Wing Pothead Loughner to Violence: GEORGE BUSH" [3]. * Rich Lowry links to the NYT article and stops at the part about Bush: nationalreview.com/corner/257277/dupniks-confession-rich-lowry He's also still trying to blame Clarence Dupnik. * Glenn Reynolds links to the Lowry post with "LOUGHNER: NOT EXACTLY A...

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

... staunch Obama opponents Dan Riehl, Gateway Pundit, and Andrew Breitbart's BigGovernment.com [1]. Townhall has a poll on their front page, which isn't exactly the same as encouraging people to call their representatives. Hot Air has had some coverage, but there's nothing on their front page at post time. Back in May I predicted that the teaparties and rightwing bloggers might stumble us into...

Possible massive voter fraud in Arizona and Colorado (SEIU link) (update: state denies it) - 10/25/10

... this story is being spread by Gateway Pundit (link) at Andrew Breitbart's site (link). The Colorado story was reported in their local media, but the Arizona story has yet to be confirmed. At the least, Mi Familia Vota does appear to have close ties to the SEIU. UPDATE: It's a good thing I added the "big word of caution". Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has issued a press release "set[ting...

Melissa Bean's "thug" vs. teaparty libertarian idiot at public meeting - 08/16/10

Gateway Pundit offers "It Begins… Dem Congresswoman Brings In Street Thug at Town Hall Meeting to Threaten Constituents (Video)" (link). The Congresswoman in question is Melissa Bean (D-Illinois) and the titular video is at peekURL.com/vwd99py Call me gullible but, even adjusting for the fact that Gateway Pundit tends to get things wrong I was expecting to see some actual thuggery. Instead: 1....

Will teaparty and rightwing bloggers stumble us into amnesty? - 05/09/10

As if there wasn't enough to worry about, here's something else: rightwing bloggers and the tea parties might "oppose" amnesty in such a way that makes amnesty more likely. Those in that orbit in effect helped Obama get elected by not opposing him in the correct way (see Obama opponents mistakes, this, and this.) Now, they're applying the same ineffective, less-effective, or counter-productive -...

No shame: Teaparty invokes Civil Rights Movement, baby-waves, and engages in bad journalism - 04/29/10

Yesterday, Gateway Pundit (aka Jim Hoft, someone who I take to be more a useful idiot naif than an outright Glenn Reynolds type) offered "Team Obama Calls Out Swat Team on Tea Party Patriots!" (biggovernment.com/jhoft/2010/04/28/team-obama-calls-out-swat-team-on-tea-party-patriots), a journalism-free claim about an Obama event in Quincy, Illinois. It includes the video at peekURL.com/vfvrudm The...

Obama administration was briefed on possible terrorist attacks over holidays - 01/02/10

... intelligence officials. Of this, Gateway Pundit says the expected: "Obama was warned about the threats to the homeland in a Christmas briefing before he flew off to his golfing and snorkling Hawaii holiday vacation." (link). Meanwhile, Spencer Ackerman spins it the administration's way here, even while admitting that this is "Not Nothing".
