In the photo, a young black kid is in a room somewhere throwing up middle fingers. This, of course, is damning evidence to the Breitbrats because the kid is black, he looks kind of black, and I’m pretty sure the kid is black. Also, it’s the first time in history that any kid, black or otherwise has ever mugged for a camera, so he must be up to something. He’s probably mugging the cameraman!
Zombie Breitbart must be rolling over in his grave.
Breitbart minion Jason Mattera thought he’d scored a great interview with U2′s Bono. Mattera ambushed “Bono” at some event in order to grill “Bono” (an Irish citizen) about why “Bono” is hiding tax money in Holland… or something:
U2 singer Bono is known for his antipoverty activism, which includes calls on most world governments to spend more on foreign aid. Yet when it comes to the finances of Bono’s own company, he’s apparently a bit more of a Scrooge. Moreover, he’s loath to admit it, as an interview with author Jason Mattera caught on tape showed. You can watch the video and read the transcript of some select excerpts provided by Breitbart.com below…
Except the Bono he interviewed wasn’t the Bono. It was an impersonator. Not only that, it’s an obvious impersonator! The video has been set to private on YouTube, but you can view it here because the Internet is forever:
Dana Loesch, who is valiantly trying (and failing) to carry Breitbart’s torch, has done some digging into Sandra Fluke’s personal life because of course she has.
Loesch, after discovering that Fluke’s boyfriend is the son of an “entrenched Democrat,” and that Fluke and her boyfriend are currently on vacation in California, concludes that Fluke’s boyfriend should be paying for Fluke’s contraception. After all, it’s unfathomable that Fluke can’t fund her own sluttiness when she has a “Democrat” boyfriend and enough money to make the harrowing journey from one coast to the other.
Yes, really. Dana Loesch is that stupid.
Why is Dana Loesch on CNN? Her idiocy is much better suited for Fox News. Why doesn’t CNN bid her adieu? For an organization that is supposed to be a news network [insert derisive snort], CNN is not doing itself any favors by continuing to allow such a mental incompetent and pathological liar to further pollute its brand (such as it is.)
Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the fail-clowns on the right are currently creaming their twinkies over video footage so shocking, that it very well might have been the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death.
In the video, a young President Obama (at the time, he was president of the Harvard Law Review) is speaking at a Harvard protest rally in support of then law school Professor Derrick Bell’s call for more diversity among Harvard faculty.
The big reveal (which Breitbart touted at CPAC as signaling the death knell for President Obama’s re-election chances) is that at the end of the video — you should probably sit down for this — BARACK OBAMA HUGS DERRICK BELL.
BLACK MEN HUGGING? The hell you say!
The nutbags on the right are losing their collective shit because they believe that The Forbidden Hug was hidden from the American public because JEREMIAH WRIGHT AND GODDAMN AMERICA AND ALSO, TOO BILL AYERS:
Because President Obama was black, and because Breitbart believed in using every and any weapon at hand, Breitbart’s politics did inevitably become racially coded. Breitbart’s memory will always be linked to his defamation of Shirley Sherrod and his attempt to make a national scandal out of back payments to black farmers: the story he always called “Pigford” with self-conscious resonance.
Yet it is wrong to see Breitbart as racially motivated. Had Breitbart decided he hated a politician whose ancestors came over on the Mayflower, Breitbart would have been just as delighted to attack that politicians with a different set of codes. The attack was everything, the details nothing.
No. See, no. This is equivocating, self-serving, puerile bullshit of the highest magnitude right here, and it’s the major reason why the ruined wasteland of American journalism that Andrew Breitbart helped to create was allowed to happen because the people who clearly knew better gave him a pass anyway.
I am not celebrating the death of Andrew Breitbart. I do object to his elevation in death, however. If you read the Huffington Post today, everyone from Arianna herself to the staff at Media Matters is expressing sadness at his passing. By this time tomorrow, his martyrdom will be incorporated into the right-wing canon and everyone will forget he was a serial fabricator. Continue reading →
Ridiculous: Dana Loesch over at “Big Journalism” had her merry band of idiots fact-check Amy Poehler’s comment that “there are too many people” and attempts to disprove the statement by linking to studies demonstrating that birth and fertility rates have declined (as if Amy Poehler was making some sort of political statement about birth rates.)
A video of four U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters sparked outrage this week, and the Pentagon announced today that it was moving toward proffering charges against the servicemembers who appear in it.
This may have come as a surprise to BigGovernment.com Editor-in-Chief and CNN “Political Analyst” Dana Loesch, who took a distinctly positive view of the act Thursday on her 97.1 FM News Talk radio show.
Had she been there, Loesch said, she would gladly “drop trou and do it, too.”
As listeners were presumably scrambling to find Internet videos of adorable kittens in order to relieve themselves of that mental image, Loesch went on: “That’s me though. I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say? Come on, people – this is a war. What do people think this is?”
The more appropriate question is: What does Dana Loesch – “editor,” “journalist,” “paid CNN contributor” Dana Loesch – think this is?
Whatever Loesch might think “war” means, the people paid to engage in it are not taking this lightly: Continue reading →
The wingnuts are in full smear mode, claiming that during his speech at the Detroit rally today, Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr. advocated for violence by saying “Let’s take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong!”
And, of course, these liars pivoted from that lie to the next lie: That by failing to condemn Hoffa’s statement, President Obama is “sanctioning violence against fellow Americans.” The wingnuts are having a field day with this because of course they are.
