Conservative bloggers who support amnesty (Rubio; Hot Air, Morrissey, Johnsen, Loesch, Moran, Mataconis...) - 01/21/13

... around that problem. * Moe Lane of RedState offers on his own site this ( the first sentence is a reference to the WSJ article outlining Rubio's plan; quote source: peekURL.com/zk9Yyvd ): I could live with this. More importantly: so could probably 50+% of the electorate, which I suspect is getting thoroughly tired of this issue. ...Now, I know very well that a lot of people are going to be...

Moe Lane of RedState, Drudge "reverse race-bait" Hawaii senator pick (Abercrombie, Inouye) - 12/27/12

Moe Lane of RedState and Matt Drudge are trying to create racial controversy where it didn't exist. Neither are doing those who oppose leftwingers playing the race card any favors. Using the link text "Hawaii Gov ignores Senator's dying wish, picks white male...", Drudge links to Lane's story "Neil Abercrombie ignores Daniel Inouye’s dying wish, picks Brian Schatz for Hawaii Senate" [1]. Lane's...

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

... (the post by Erick Erickson of RedState has a hilariously-incompetent title, so visit that one last if you need a laugh). And, yes, I've written similar posts before and there's also these. I'm pointing out a problem that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with; those Romney supporters who delude themselves about the problem aren't doing themselves any favors. And, in case anyone is wondering, I...

Did Jon Huntsman smear Ron Paul with a false flag video? ("Manchurian Candidate", Maddow, RedState, Wonkette, John King, Breitbart) - 01/07/12

... update above. * Leon Wolf of RedState ("You Stay Classy, Ron Paul Supporters", redstate . com/leon_h_wolf/2012/01/05/you-stay-classy-ron-paul-supporters): So Jon Huntsman can speak Mandarin and also he adopted a little Chinese girl who was abandoned in a market. Providing us with yet more evidence that they are mostly liberal Democrats who are mad that Obama has governed too far to the right,...

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

... Glenn Reynolds' Instapundit * Redstate (checked: front page, recommended diaries, and California sections and Moe Lane's diary) * Daily Caller (checked: front page, US, and Politics sections) * Pajamas Media (checked: front page) * HotAir * Patterico * Just One Minute * Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, Big Journalism (which doesn't even have an immigration category!), breitbart.tv or breitbart...

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

... an update: * Before the vote, RedState had no frontpage posts urging people to take action against the bill. After the vote, Moe Lane offers "5 (or 6) Democrats kill DREAM Act in Senate" (redstate.com/moe_lane/2010/12/18/ 5-democrats-kill-dream-act-in-senate), as if the bill failing was a bad thing. * Before the vote, Glenn Reynolds had one, brief post (pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/111621)...

Let's show how Roger Ebert is wrong (U.S. flag vs. Mexican/Mexican-American high school students) - 05/14/10

A few days ago, Chicago Sun Times movie critic Roger Ebert responded to the incident where American flag-wearing high school students were asked to leave school on Cinco de Mayo. Ebert tweeted, "Kids who wear American Flag t-shirts on 5 May should have to share a lunchroom table with those who wear a hammer and sickle on 4 July."

Erick Erickson lies about Hawaii's governor; bans "Birthers" and "Truthers" from RedState - 02/12/10

Erick Erickson of RedState offers "Vigilance: I’m Banning Birfers, Truthers, and Groups Affiliated Therewith" [1] (Erickson's lie bolded): We’ve always banned truthers at RedState. Increasingly, we have also banned a number of individuals who think Barack Obama is disqualified from being President because despite the Republican Governor of Hawaii confirming the legitimacy of the Democratic...

Rep. Alan Grayson pushes camera of someone trying to ask him a lame question - 06/27/09

... from Moe Lane (affiliated with RedState) [2] featuring Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson pushing the camera of someone who tried to ask him a question. There are two main aspects to this story: Grayson's actions, and the continuing stupidity of the Instapundit/RedState axis. On the video, the cameraman keeps saying, "can I ask you a question" as Grayson is walking along what appears to be a public...

Glenn Reynolds, RedState promote anti-intellectualism and intimidation (completely ineffective protest against Tim Bishop, tea parties) - 06/24/09

... [1] and by Brian Faughnan of RedState [2]. The only appearance on the video by Bishop is as he enters; someone yells at him, asking whether he has something to say to his constituents. The same person then says, "stop spending our money". That's it; they didn't even have a good question that could be shouted at him. Once again: I can't adequately describe just how idiotic this is. For the...

Grover Norquist group's loony libertarian immigration ideas - 06/01/09

On Friday, RedState front-paged the Brian Johnson article "Conservative Immigration Reform is Right Next to Unicorns and Leprechauns" [1]. At first you might think he's just some random libertarian loon, until you see the article in its original location at the "Alliance for Worker Freedom" [2]. Scrolling to the bottom, you see that AWF is a member of the H2B Workforce Coalition and the Essential...

Is Erick Erickson of RedState promoting revolution, violence against politicians? - 04/01/09

... that caused Erick Erickson of RedState to snap (redstate.com/erick/2009/03/31/at-what-point-do-people-revolt): At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot? ...Were I in Washington State, I’d be cleaning my gun right about...

Stimulus: Leadership Conference on Civil Rights may get up to $90 million - 02/04/09

Under the Senate version of the stimulus plan, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights may get up to $90 million for helping with the switch from analog to digital television.

Donate a penny for RedState! (needs $25,000 to move from Drupal to Django) - 01/07/08

Our friends at RedState have issued an urgent plea [1] for $25,000 so they can upgrade their site from Drupal to Django. In the spirit of helpfulness, I urge everyone reading this to donate a penny if PayPal allows it. But, only if the transactions costs exceed the amount you donate. In the plea, Erick Erickson implies some sort of liberal conspiracy that's prevented them from getting help or...

Covert White House propaganda for Senate immigration amnesty bill? - 06/02/07

... make a habit of never visiting RedState, but that's the only two possibilities I can think of. And, one would think that if they had outreached to "liberal" sites they would have posted about that; I doubt whether DailyKos has been allowing Karl Rove to post a diary there under his own name. Note also that the White House has been "posting defenses", which might imply that they've been posting...

I was banned by RedState - 03/09/06

... posting entries and comments at RedState since July 2004. [1] A few days ago my last entry there was deleted and my posting privileges were revoked. [2] And, despite sending two emails to RS co-founder Mike Krempasky and one to another moderator there, no one has seen fit to tell me exactly who banned me and why they did it. [3] The entry that initiated the banning was Bush "Gold Card" would...

Kos/Krempasky: support free speech online! - 03/09/06

... (DailyKos) and Michael Krempasky (RedState) have sent a letter (dailykos . com/story/2006/3/9/9134/22058) to Congress urging them to support H.R. 1606, the Online Freedom of Speech Act. Just as a small bit of irony, back in 2003 I was banned from leaving comments at DailyKos, after I pointed out that Kos' source wasn't what he implied it was. And, a couple days ago I appear to have been banned...

Banned by RedState! - 03/07/06

... might have finally been banned by RedState.org. Yesterday around this time I re-posted the entry Bush "Gold Card" would open borders to cheap labor at RedState, and it still shows up in news.google.com: The URL in that picture goes to a moderation page: the-lonewacko-blog.redstate . com/story/2006/3/6/232229/3836 And, while my diary is still there (the-lonewacko-blog . redstate.com), there...

Poll: How many more Bush administrations (this century)? - 01/20/05
