It is revealing that President Barack Obama’s re-election supporters are embracing the disjointed complaints of the Occupy Wall Street crowd now that union members and the George Soros-backed MoveOn.org gang have organized to join the demonstrations, and presumably co-opt them.
Obama’s financial supporters — and the president by virtue of his silence over their actions — can no longer conceal a plain truth: their ultimate goal is a complete dismantling of the capitalist economic system and America as we know it.
I personally look forward to the show like a little kid looks forward to candy.
A few weeks ago, they did a show called “Stop Whining”, which I highly recommend you listen to, after you subscribe to them on iTunes. But in case you prefer reading or are at work and can’t really listen, I took the time to transcribe a large portion of that show for your reading pleasure. I think it exposes the true motivations and agenda of those who have become known as the “Professional Left” or the name I prefer, “Firebaggers”.
As with anyone, I don’t agree with everything they say, but damn near everything in this portion of the show. The one thing I disagree on is the characterization of the blog post by Deaniac83 from The People’s View that was the impetus for a lot of the discussion. Deaniac83′s post about the debt ceiling deal, as I saw it, was about how that deal wasn’t as bad as it was being portrayed by many on the left. I didn’t perceive it as approving of the deal, but rather that the President made the best of a bad situation. Contrary to John Boehner’s characterization that he got 98% of what he wanted, when you look at the deal from a wider perspective, President Obama “ate his lunch”. They quickly move away from that subject and on to an incredibly insightful analysis of the “firebaggers” — who seem intent on helping the Republicans take down our Democratic President Barack Obama. Enjoy and share widely!
And so the keening from the Lake begins with Jane Hamsher’s absurd claims that Obama ordered the Tar Sands Protesters jailed. Yes, that’s right — ordered.
Entirely ignoring reports that the National Park Service has stated that the protestors violated permits that allowed them to march — but not stand or sit — on the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the White House (which — according to Vent Casey III — has been closed off since the Clinton administration), Jane seems to need to believe that Obama’s jackboots are fomenting a police state, and that her arrest (along with the arrest of almost 100 others) is evidence of the looming police state.
It’s beginning, y’all. The inexorable slide towards Ronulism.
Jane has purchased a belt, and she has purchased some onions, but she just can’t decide whether to go with a red onion (you know — for color!) or to stick with the traditional yellow onion. Either way, she’s about to join forces with Ron Paul and His Onion Belt Party:
Tavis and Corny Bus Tour of Stupid. Well guess what folks, Tavis and Smiley aka Tavis and Cornel sideshow is taking a cue from Sarah Palin and going on a bus tour. The Raw Story has the clip where Cornel West doubles down on his stupidity. You may disagree, but these two jokers are stupid.
