Governor Scott Walker fathered out-of-wedlock child, wanted to abort it

Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op reports:

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Tuesday afternoon’s recall target, goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage its midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin®, isn’t what he appears to be?

Self-banging Tea Party skank. Dedicated enemy of the working stiff. Assassin for the national big-business bully brigade. Point man for the cradle-to-grave poverty interests. A whopping butthole too, along with all that, but not the Jeezus-trembler he’d have us believe.

No, if true, Scott Walker isn’t the man of steadfast principles and moral steel he’s been imitating on the TV, before the voters, around the polling stations. He’s your extra sonuvabitch. A “You’re pregnant so what’s that got to do with me?” kind of guy.

Bernadette Gillick was a college freshman in 1988 when she first met Scott Walker. It was spring semester, and she had just transferred to Marquette University. She was assigned a room in O’Donnell Hall (then a women’s dormitory), which she shared with her new roommate, Ruth (not her real name). Ruth was dating Scott Walker, who was 20 at the time, and, according to Bernadette, Ruth was deeply in love with him.

Midway through that spring semester, Bernadette alleges, Ruth found out she was pregnant. She informed her boyfriend, Scott, and initially he was supportive. That support changed to callous indifference for his girlfriend’s predicament after Scott informed his parents of the pregnancy.

Bernadette reports that at this point Scott began denying that he was the father of the baby, and when Ruth said she was considering an abortion, he claimed he didn’t care, as he wasn’t the father anyway . .


“Walker has stated that he is ‘100% pro-life’ and that he believes life should be protected from conception to natural death. He opposes abortion in all circumstances, including in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother. He supports abstinence-only sex education in the public schools, and opposes state supported clinical services that provide birth control and testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases to teens under the age of 18 without parental consent. He supports the right of pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for contraceptives on religious or moral grounds . . ”

“I supported her as he went from encouraging her to get an abortion, to telling me it was in my best interest to keep my mouth shut, to denying that he was the father and having his own mother call her and tell her to stop erroneously accusing her son of paternity,” Bernadette recounts.

It was a “horrible time” for her friend. “Imagine her being 18 years old and pregnant, walking around Marquette’s Jesuit Catholic campus with her boyfriend denying he was the father,” says Bernadette. . .

After consulting with her family, Ruth decided against an abortion. Bernadette was with Ruth in the hospital for the birth of her child later that year (and says Walker was not present), and later stood up as a bridesmaid in Ruth’s 1992 marriage to another man. She says Walker eventually had to concede that he was the father, after the birth and paternity test.

. . so if having a nasty turd for your governor makes Wisconsin any much better, vote for Scottie. If not, recall the bastard.

UPDATE: Latest says the whole story is wrong, that the father was another Scott Walker at Marquette. Well, if this is case, I sincerely apologize to the sonuvabitch. By the way, if having a nasty turd for your governor makes Wisconsin any much better, vote for Scottie. If not, recall the bastard.

UPDATE II: Okay, it wasn’t the other Scott Walker. So who was it? Gillick stands by her assertion:

According to Dr. Gillick’s attorney, Michael Fargione, who was present for an interview of Dr. Gillick conducted by Dave Umhoefer from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last week, he asked Dr. Gillick, “How do you know it was this Scott Walker?” She told him she had multiple conversations with him because her roommate was dating him. She exchanged words with him directly and in person after, as she alleges, he turned on her roommate once she notified him of her pregnancy and became unsupportive of her. “There is no mistake that it’s him,” she said.

So the only one denying it is the child’s mother. Who may have never told the child who her/his real father was, understandably. It’s currently the big story in politics, and the Governor remains stone silent, two days before the recall. Hmm. Tick-tock tick-tock . .


J.T. Ready, liberal activist, meet Jim Hoft, gentleman Rhodes Scholar

I love this game. Violent neo-Nazi gun-nut who hates everyone kills four, commits suicide. Who do you think he was really? Gosh, who can tell?

“The truth is that negroids screw monkeys and rape babies in afreaka. Then stupid white man who licks kosher jew rear lets negroids in. … Stop Negroid immigration and integration now!!! Nature will take care of the rest.”

It’s the forward to “It Takes a Village.” I have a theory, myself. I’d say Ready wasn’t a peacenik. He wasn’t a multi-culturalist. He wasn’t preaching togetherness and understanding. He was a raging neanderthal, or “Republican.” J.T. was your “white folks made this country great so I prowl the border with my semi-automatic looking for Mexicans” type. Know any liberals like that?

He was your values voter turned up to 11. Among the border vigilantes in the world, like the Minutemen, the defenders of white people in the world, like Pat Buchanan, the Negroid haters in the world, like John Derbyshire, and the anti-Semites in the world, like David Duke, Ready was simply more well-rounded and passionate than his brethren.

Not that he didn’t impress plenty of them. They loved the guy when he was running for Mesa City Council in 2006:

His anti-property-tax campaign platform and failure to fizzle out as the reports of his past surfaced has his opponents on guard and girding for a possible runoff election in May. . .

After a late start, he began picking up endorsements from several notable East Valley Republicans, such as state Rep. Russell Pearce and state Sen. Karen Johnson, among others.

His racism was fine by Mesa. It was after they learned he’d been kicked out of the Marines that they abandoned him. That’d be fine by us, the moonbats, except that he’s absolutely satanic. He continued to roll with his right-wing pals [courtesy the SPLC, Spring 2008]:

The past president of the Mesa Community College Republican Club and current Maricopa County Republican precinct committeeman, Ready is deeply involved in mainstream conservative politics. He’s also an outright neo-Nazi. Ready spoke at a rally put on by the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement in Omaha, Neb., last September (where he was billed as an “Arizona Republican activist”)…

You figure that’s a Republican with a future. Except he became too notorious for Arizona politics. He was a black eye for the rabid white people. The name of the game there is keeping your public racism on low-boil, so they abandoned him. Still he continued: forming a border militia group. Sending out his neo-Nazi gang to patrol “Occupy Phoenix”:

“Sporting assault rifles, they posed flanked by dozens of cops. Recognizing key NSM [National Socialist Movement] organizers in their midst, several people confronted them and set about informing the generally ignorant crowd that before them stood actual fascists, armed to the teeth.”

Several of the heavily-armed “Border Guards,” were at the camp late Saturday night at Hance Park, and were no comfort to Native Americans and others in the movement.

The online Downtown Devil reported at 10 pm, “At least three members of the Arizona Border Guard are still present with sidearms and one has donned a gas mask and a ballistic helmet.”

Even running for Pinal County Sheriff as a Democrat:

Neo-Nazi J.T. Ready Runs for Pinal County Sheriff as a Democrat
Phoenix New Times

. . “As part of our exploratory committee for Sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona- the Chairman and I visit a Black neighborhood to better understand the concerns of the people and how to utilize their help in combating Mexican drug cartels. Seems how we have an official Malcolm X street sign, one of my priorities will be to add a George Lincoln Rockwell sign as well.”

Rockwell, in case you don’t know, was the infamous fuhrer of the American Nazi Party, assassinated in 1967 by a disgruntled stormtrooper.

You can see what J.T. was up to. He’d gone so far around the bend, his act was beginning to poke out the other side. Look at the political rebel appropriating Black Power symbology to further an anti-n*gger agenda. In a peyote sort of way, it makes sense. More to some than others:

Horror!… Neo-Nazi #Occupy Phoenix Protester Goes On Shooting Rampage – 5 Dead
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, May 3, 2012, 11:38 AM

Back in October we reported that Neo-Nazi Jason Todd Ready was patrolling the #Occupy Phoenix camp with AR-15′s. . .

Of course, since this was not a Tea Party rally the story was never picked up by the liberal media.

Someone should have reported white supremacists crapping on Occupy Phoenix, absolutely. Yes? No, Hoft claims that Ready was, in fact, a movement leader. Which is so far past hot damn it requires a word for planetary-core temperature stupid. “Magma chamber derp,” or “Hoftian,” perhaps.

As Jim Treacher says, “The Occupy Camp is a great incubator for domestic terrorism.” That’s an understatement! . .

It looks like poor unhinged Charles Johnson jumped the gun on this one. JT wasn’t a rightwinger after all, huh Chuck? Hopefully Mr. Johnson will be honest enough to post an update with corrections.

Contrast reality this way, and you’re the J.T. of blogging.


Russell Pearce’s neo-Nazi pal kills four people then shoots himself

Neo-Nazi J.T. Ready shot and killed four people yesterday at the Gilbert, Arizona, home where he lived.

A border militia leader on Wednesday shot and killed four people at a Gilbert home, including a toddler, before committing suicide, sources said.

Sources identified the shooter as Jason “J.T.” Ready, a reputed neo-Nazi who made headlines when he launched a militia movement to patrol the Arizona desert to hunt for illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.

Ready was a white supremacist and familiar presence to Arizonans who followed local politics. He was a political ally to former Arizona Senate President and Tea Party celebrity Russell Pearce, the architect of the state’s controversial anti-immigrant S.B. 1070 law.

J.T. Ready and Russell Pearce

Pearce endorsed Ready for Mesa City Council in 2006 and appeared with him at several rallies. In 2004 Pearce was photographed attending J.T Ready’s baptism into the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Church documents reveal that Pearce ordained J.T. Ready into the LDS priesthood. Pearce has since claimed he was unaware of Ready’s neo-Nazi affiliations at the time he made the endorsement.

Ready lived at the residence where the shooting took place. He was living with his girlfriend, Lisa Mederos, one of the victims.

Authorities have not identified the other victims, but reached by phone Wednesday afternoon, Hugo Mederos said the victims were his ex-wife, Lisa; their daughter, Amber; Amber’s boyfriend, whose name The Republic is withholding until his next of kin could be notified, and Amber’s 18-month-old baby, Lilly.

Mederos, who lives in Tampa, said Ready lived at the home with his girlfriend, Lisa.

Ready was a former Marine who headed the U.S. Border Guard, a militia-style group that routinely performed armed patrols in the southern Arizona desert. Early this year, Ready had formed an exploratory committee for a run as Pinal County sheriff.

In a statement of organization filed Jan. 11, Amber Mederos was listed as treasurer of the Committee to Elect J.T. Ready. Her name was nowhere to be found in amended paperwork filed March 12.

Ready recently formed the “U.S. Border Guard,” an anti-immigrant militia. The group sometimes roamed the desert at night looking for suspected illegal immigrants attempting to enter the state.

Tea Party Flap A Stuffed Into Romney Slot B

Speaking of political people once seemingly important and powerful a year ago, where went the Tea Party? Where are they now? What have they been doing? How many bugs can they eat? I ask the questions no one else will.

“The Tea Party movement is dead. It’s gone,” says Chris Littleton, the cofounder of the Ohio Liberty Council, a statewide coalition of Tea Party groups in Ohio. “I think largely the Tea Party is irrelevant in the primaries. They aren’t passionate about any of the candidates, and if they are passionate, they’re for Ron Paul.”

And Ron Paul has been re-relegated to the sidelines. Ay, pobrecitos. The nation’s attention remains focused on right-wing politics, but nobody’s particularly interested in a teabagger any more. It must be depressing to feel so powerless after once having the Wonder Bread suits ply you with free hot dogs, placards and bus rides. Getting face time on Fox News with the likes of Sean Hannity — those were salad days, friend.

Mark Meckler, founder of the Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest Tea Party coalition, also says the Tea Party isn’t playing a role in picking the nominee. But that is by choice, not by accident, he says.

“The real Tea Party movement is not a political party, it’s a movement,” he says. “How can a movement endorse anybody? It really can’t.”

There’s a silly question. How can a group of people with a particular ideology pick a particular person? Obviously, it happens all the time.

I think this points out a certain truth: The Tea Party doesn’t have any ideology. They’re actually an expression of free-floating animus against a world evolving beyond their ken. A black president? An exploding ‘Latino’ population? A doomed white majority?

Scream it ain’t so. After giving so much to their beloved country, they’re limping into retirement, for what? So that their taxes can be used to pay for the healthcare/birthing of immigrants. It’s not true, but for them it’s a nightmare made real. Stop the government spending! This is not what the Founding Fathers, America’s white genius slave owners, would have tolerated. They remember what made America great.

Where is their 2012 cutting-edge traditionalist? Where’s their purist, rebel, soldier-thinker?

Ron Paul comes closest. He’s got racism in the bag: he’s been literally selling it for decades. The problem is he doesn’t actually relish targeting The Black Guy this way. Paul’s bank account has got a bigger taste for bigotry than his heart does. His loopy, war-dodging foreign policy makes him impotent against the Al Qaeda-hunting incumbent anyway, so forget him.

Newt Gingrich? He’s beautiful on the stump and in the debates, isn’t he? Poor kids will learn to unclog the nation’s toilets under President Gingrich. Black people haven’t yet learned how to work, incidentally. Problem? He won’t pull the trigger on the biggest target: immigrants. Here Gingrich throws away the game. He will not root out, jail, prosecute and expel the nation’s seemingly permanent foreign criminals. If you won’t bother with that, good lord, why bother with you?

Rick Santorum? A favorite of the spirited but entrenched Republican elites. But not the Tea Party. Why? He’s an avowed anachronism. He’s a giant-government social scold. He would throw the “issue” of contraception back to the states. Didn’t even know it was an issue, did you? He spends your hard-earned taxes like George W. Bush. He helped spend your-hard earned taxes the way George W. Bush did. He’d resurrect the War in Irag, $15 billion per month and all. No thanks.

That leaves Romney. Who’s obviously wrong on almost everything. Banker bailouts, healthcare, spinelessness, Mormonism, ugh. Except for one little thing: he could beat the black guy. You talk about huge. That’s why the hesitant mannequin just pulled half of the Tea Party people in Nevada. His potential will only loom larger as the primaries zoom by. So, hello Mitt.


Alabama Tea Party Candidates to Wedgie President

Push aside, dorks. Step off, stoners, nerds and spirit ‘wads. Scurry back to your classrooms, wimps: make way for the BMOCs.

It’s the University of Alabama, Teabagger, and here come the “Big Men of the Confederacy.” They’re the Heart of Dixie’s freshman studs. Given the length and girth of their self-confidence, the satisfaction of the South is in the offing. If only they could be satisfied. There may be something to that, incidentally. Close enough: these two will finish the black guy’s life career.

Two Alabama Tea Party Candidates Run On Platform Of Impeaching Obama
Adam Peck | Think Progress

At a candidate forum hosted by the tea party group Common Sense Campaign, both Pete Riehm and Dean Young were asked if they would introduce articles of impeachment against President Obama, and both replied “yes” to loud applause, according to the Mobile Press-Register.

Oh, you like that, don’t you? Dirty little teabitch.

“First, I would cut off his funding. If that didn’t work, I would introduce a resolution describing what he’s done wrong. The last resort, which I am willing to take, would be to impeach him,” Young explained further. Riehm was equally unapologetic, saying, “failure to recognize wrong-doing is moral dereliction and, when you have the authority, failure to uphold the law is accessory to the crime.” Among President Obama’s crimes, argues Riehm, is his failure to defend the Defense of Marriage Act and failure to enforce federal laws on immigration and elections.

Either one of these two, his first day in office, he’ll just convene the Senate for a trial. The charges: Mr. President, you stink. That’s a high crime in Alabama. Obama would be out of office before Diane Sawyer could make her NO Face:


Is it the Tea Party or Tennessee that Can’t Stand the Truth?

There’s an amazing post-Civil War letter from a freed slave to his former Tennessee master that’s made the internet rounds the last couple of days. Read it here, and be amazed.


August 7, 1865

To My Old Master, Colonel P.H. Anderson, Big Spring, Tennessee

Sir: I got your letter, and was glad to find that you had not forgotten Jourdon, and that you wanted me to come back and live with you again, promising to do better for me than anybody else can. I have often felt uneasy about you. I thought the Yankees would have hung you long before this, for harboring Rebs they found at your house. I suppose they never heard about your going to Colonel Martin’s to kill the Union soldier that was left by his company in their stable. Although you shot at me twice before I left you, I did not want to hear of your being hurt, and am glad you are still living.

Unbelievable. Lesson: Conservatives are clueless no matter the century.

Another part:

In answering this letter, please state if there would be any safety for my Milly and Jane, who are now grown up, and both good-looking girls. You know how it was with poor Matilda and Catherine. I would rather stay here and starve—and die, if it come to that—than have my girls brought to shame by the violence and wickedness of their young masters.

That struck me. I have no reason to believe Jourdon would lie about what he knew. I have every reason to believe Matilda and Catherine were victims of sexual assault by owners and/or their employees, and Jourdon would do anything to avoid having his daughters suffer the same fate.

Which brings me to more Tennessee, just modern day:

Tea parties issue demands to Tennessee legislators
Richard Locker | Tennessee Commercial Appeal

About two dozen tea party activists held a news conference, then met with lawmakers individually to present their list of priorities and “demands” for the 2011 legislative session that opened Tuesday.

Regarding education, the material they distributed said, “Neglect and outright ill will have distorted the teaching of the history and character of the United States. We seek to compel the teaching of students in Tennessee the truth regarding the history of our nation and the nature of its government.”

They could start with Jourdon Anderson’s letter to his former master. Plenty of truth for a Tennessee gentleman to chew on.

Fayette County attorney Hal Rounds, the group’s lead spokesman during the news conference, said the group wants to address “an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another.”

. . “made up” criticism? Perhaps, like calling the country’s president “socialist” when he’s merely “Democratic”? Or claiming he’s an “illegitimate African usurper” when he’s really “black”?

Fine, let’s avoid fantasies. Back in ‘history’ days, 46 year-old Thomas Jefferson impregnated 16 year-old Virginian Sally Hemings. Why? Because they were married? Engaged? No. Because Jefferson owned her. Sally was his slave. Nothing fantastic about that.

Hey, me? I’m not criticizing anyone. Banging teenage girls is a perq that comes with owning them. The Andersons would tell you.


The guy playing race cards like black Maverick

On MLK day, Allen West feels it’s a good time to go after the president. What better way to celebrate a man who asked America to see beyond race than to call Obama a race-baiting opportunist? It’s perfectly fine to do that when you’re Allen.

Mr. President, please don’t play the race card in 2012
Congressman Allen West | Facebook

I was born in the inner city of Atlanta in 1961, when segregation was still rife, at a time when I would have been barred from visiting the very beaches that make up part of the congressional district I so proudly represent.

. . it would be a disgrace if Mr. Holder’s comment is the first salvo in the upcoming campaign to deflect honest assessment of the President’s performance in office. This campaign must be about ideas, policy and the direction of this country, and the President must not hide behind a curtain of so-called racial bias . .

My message to President Obama is this: “Mr. President, your very presence in office demonstrates Dr. King’s dream has indeed come true. But how devastated would Dr. King be to know the Americans who are still fomenting racism at the highest levels are the very people for whom he fought for and died?”

The legitimacy of the attack is enhanced after Allen reminds everybody he’s a victim of racism. Don’t you think? Anyways, if I get West right, the president campaigning like this would be obscene:

“The people on that plantation are upset because they’ve been disregarded, disrespected and their concerns are not cared about” . .

“I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman to kind of lead people on the underground railroad away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility” . .

Allen? Do you recognize yourself?

Some black leaders “are nothing more than overseers over that plantation,” West said, including Rep. Maxine Waters (D-house negro) . .

Call me over-sensitive, but I’m getting a whiff of racial politics.

“White liberals have turned over to certain leaders — ‘perceived leaders’ — in the black community like a Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, a Maxine Waters or Barbara Lee, and said, ‘pacify and keep the black community firmly behind us regardless of the failures of our social welfare policies,’” West said.

I imagine Allen will deny he’s playing the race card; conservatives can’t even do that.

I’m the threat because I’m the guy that got off their 21st-century plantation, and they cannot afford to have a strong voice such as mine out there, reverberating and resonating across this country.

He’ll say you’re just angry with him because he’s . . well, black.


Libertarian pol Jules Manson calls Obama “fucken n*gger”

Some Tea Party/Libertarian politician living not too far from me, near Carson, CA, recently bought himself a load of trouble. Apparently unhappy about the indefinite detention provisions in the recently signed National Defense Authorization Act, Jules Manson took to his Facebook page to post this screed (sorry fuzzy):

Notice the call for assassinations of political figures, their children, and anyone in the military carrying out their duties. Also notice Manson calling the prez “that monkey.” Jules was not done — he added even better comments later:

Quoth the Jules: “Assassinate the fucken nigger and his monkey children.”

Jules later deleted the page. Then he deleted his account. Then he got a visit from the Secret Service. Then he added this:

. . the comments on his Facebook page [were] “careless, emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance” and wrote, “Not including my regular friends whom I converse with often or have in the past and always welcome their comments and posts, I do not believe many of you are concerned citizens.”

Thus when you call for the death of a n*gger president, you’re a responsible citizen.

Allen West calls us “Joseph Goebbels”: UPDATE for die Ironie

Allen West, the Florida Tea Party representative from a very Jewish district, offered us an opinion yesterday. When asked about Americans having a negative view of Congress, Allen said it was unfair. The reason people thought Republicans were douchebag politicians, he said, wasn’t because it was true. It was because Democrats were master media manipulators, like those of the Nazi Party. Liberals are modern-day Reich Ministers of Propaganda:

Tea party favorite Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said Thursday that Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would be “very proud” of Democrats for shifting public sentiment against Republicans, and he blamed the press for helping spread their message.

“If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine,” West told reporters in the Capitol. “I think that you have, and let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out.”

Are we Joseph Goebbels? I don’t think so. Goebbels was a homicidal lunatic, a man directly responsible for the deaths of countless Jews. We like our Jewish friends. They’re more likely to be Democrats than Republicans, and I’m happy to assume there’s a good reason for that.

So this sounds like an opinion offered for effect, doesn’t it? There’s a word for that, though it escapes me now. Anyway, more Democrats:

. . Goebbels told Hitler that “spontaneous” anti-Jewish violence had already broken out in German cities, although in fact this was not true: this was a clear case of Goebbels manipulating Hitler for his own ends . . He wrote in his diary:

“[Hitler] decides: demonstrations should be allowed to continue. The police should be withdrawn. For once the Jews should get the feel of popular anger … I immediately gave the necessary instructions to the police and the Party. Then I briefly spoke in that vein to the Party leadership. Stormy applause. All are instantly at the phones. Now people will act.”

The result of Goebbels’ incitement was Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass,” during which the S.A. and Nazi Party went on a rampage of anti-Jewish violence and destruction, killing at least 90 and maybe as many as 200 people, destroying over a thousand synagogues and hundreds of Jewish businesses and homes, and dragging some 30,000 Jews off to concentration camps . .

Are we the types of people to incite an anti-wingnut Kristallnacht in America? Would we murder or imprison thousands of Republicans? I doubt it. And though we hate the teabagger, the same way Goebbels despised Berlin Police President Bernhard Weiss, would we orchestrate a propaganda effort like this?

Gosh, maybe we would. That’s awfully funny.

JUST IN: You can’t make this comedy up . .

Media Matters brings word that furious right-wing truth teller, Andrew Breitbart — who believes Allen West should run for President — has been using classic Nazi imagery to attack the Democrat-controlled media:

In at least three instances, Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism website has used an image connected to a Nazi-era German magazine noted for anti-Semitic cartoons and pro-Hitler leanings.

The image appeared in a Big Journalism post Thursday morning written by Logan Churchwell, director of public relations at Accuracy in Media:

Here’s their pic of the post:

. . and here’s the original image, from a 1942 copy of Nazi propaganda fount Kladderadatsch:

No harm in using a time-tested image to attack the dirty propagandists, right? Okay, Allen, there’s your cue: “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud.” But you guys might want to shorten the hook nose and erase the Star of David before posting it. Oh, I see. Gut gemacht.


The growing Dodo branch of Republican evolution

What a clip of Rep. Allen West. Hosing a national TV audience with Tea Party rhetoric:

Unbelievable. Allen is, as most know, a high-strung, low-information Teabagger who crawls out of his trench to lob stupor grenades. You may not find yourself psychotic or incarcerated, but if you otherwise differ from G. Gordon Liddy you’re Allen’s target. You are also stupid and un-patriotic and dumb and un-American and you’re also, additionally, totally darn stupid.

Stupids! Get yourself a West education:

“You have to be able to call as you see it. I’m very concerned about this very divisive rhetoric that the president is using, when he continues to talk about ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ . . “

Suuuuurely Professor doesn’t mean actual ‘equality’ and ‘fairness,’ those are centuries-old political and societal ideals. You want good things for yourself, your family, your community? Those will do. Allen must mean Obama was using these vaunted concepts disingenuously. He’s been saying something like “You know what’s fair? When I confiscate Trump’s mountain of gold, and I give it to you.”

” . . this thing that I think, it is really contrary to the principles that I mentioned, as far as life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Because the government cannot guarantee happiness.”

But no. Allen means actual equality, and he means fairness. He’s saying they’re stupid. The government can’t achieve them, so the very ideas are what’s disingenuous. Why try something that can’t be done? If that sounds un-American, that’s because it is profoundly so. More:

“And if we believe that there are people in Washington, D.C. that are going to be the arbiters and be the ones who are trying to create some type of fairness — we remember FDR talking about a chicken in every pot, I recall all the rhetoric of economic and social justice — then we get away from having the right type of monetary policy, fiscal policy, tax and regulatory policy that can turn this dismal economic situation around in our country.”

To wit: The stuck-up government can’t produce equality, but idiot Democrats like FDR and Dr. King keep trying. Throw all that away and then we’ll fix our problems.

Question: To what purpose, Allen? What’s the point when equality is a conceit? When fairness is a partisan ploy? Why should anyone go on participating in America when fair play isn’t just difficult, it is thoroughly repudiated by powerful agents of the government like you? Because of starvation? Nasty weather? Avarice and greed?

This is the problem the Founding Fathers sought to solve. Governments previously served only the powerful, and everybody else had to fend for themselves. The Fathers’ new way of political thinking endowed the nobodies of the world with towering rights: To life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It was now a subservient government’s job to serve those rights. If the government never achieved perfect service, it failed. But that certainly never meant it was appropriate to give up on those Age of Enlightenment ideals, the Founding Fathers’ achievements and the United States of America.

Until Allen West came along. Now it’s time to quit the country. This is how far down the Dodo branch of political evolution Republicans have run. They are fundamentally opposed to the founding and substance of the United States. To appreciate this, just look at Republican Herbert Hoover’s campaign literature from 1928:

It was he, not FDR, that popularized “A Chicken In Every Pot.” Back when Republicans could remember who Thomas Paine was, these were the things they believed in:

The Republican Party is equality’s party — opportunity’s party — democracy’s party, the party of national development, not sectional interests — the impartial servant of every state and condition in the union.

Is there any more perfect list of what today’s GOP violently oppose?


Herman Cain scheduled for a Constitutional enema

Trying to find Herman Cain? No problem. Every morning, he holds forth in the Madison booth at Sandy’s Documents And Waffles:

Can presidents sign constitutional amendments? No. Can they demand a 2/3 vote to upend tax legislation? No. Can they overturn Supreme Court decisions? No. Why? Because these things are unconstitutional.

You can go on and on and lecture us, Herman. You can tell us how appalling it is we haven’t bothered to read the Constitution. You can point right at us and tell all your friends we’re the least patriotic dunderheads you’ve seen in your life.

But when you mock us with “Life, Liberty and Happiness,” or its foundational kin, this:

“. . whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it . . “

. . you’re not just talking traditional American ideals. You’re quoting the Declaration of Independence. 😉

Conservatives Plot to Burn, Shred, and Sabotage Scott Walker Recall Effort
Andy Kroll | Mother Jones

A group of self-identified conservatives say they plan to sabotage the effort to recall Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker, which begins on Tuesday, by burning and shredding recall petitions they’ve collected and misleading Wisconsinites about the recall process . .

They say they’re petitioning people, enlisting hundreds of signatures, and then shredding the paperwork. And they’re bragging about it on Blurbook.

Tea Party Plans Premeditated Felony
Paul I. Tascoupe | Nov 11 2011

Madison — The kick off campaign to recall embattled governor Scott Walker kicks off in just four days and with that date approaching, the tea party has plans of its own. Politiscoop has received several screen shots of tea party and right wing activists planning to pass themselves off as those circulating petitions to recall the governor.

They dug into the Facebook links and such, and they came up with this photo of an auto repair guy who’s’ a fan of the recall target, Scott Walker (skinny):

Dude, perhaps ‘Matt Wynn,’ could be the fool who’s bragging about committing felonies just to embarrass hippies:

Yeah, slashing tires? Illegal. Gathering signatures? NOT illegal.

My petitions say “Should we recall Scott Walker on them.” The morons signing them do not even know what a real one looks like.

If it’s real, it’s a major crime. I can tell you that ‘Charles Atlas Shrugging’ appears to exist. This is a note from the Spartanburg Tea Party website:
