“It is to everyone’s benefit that people back off…”
Thems is fightin’ words, girlfriend.
A former Obama Administration OFFICIAL, Melody Barnes – so not some back-bencher talking head – ACTUALLY said on national television (well, MSNBC so only the political class saw it and maybe 3 people outside the NY/DC corridor) that we should “back off” protesting Obamacare.
Way to pour gas on the flames, sister.
All it’s done is steel my resolve even deeper.
(Transcript/Video via Newsbusters:)
MELODY BARNES: It is to everyone’s benefit that people back off of what was the Reagan administration legacy that government is bad, government workers are bad and think about how we’re going to make this work because what we’ve seen time and time again with Katrina and moving forward is if we don’t have an effective federal government people get hurt. In fact people can die.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Hold on a second. why would I back off if I think health care policy is bad for the country in the the long run, the federal government is not competent enough to run it, and the launch has been terrible. Sam Stein asks the question are Republicans going to do their best to help this implementation? No, I don’t think they are. And I don’t think it means they are unpatriotic if they don’t. Obviously what happened over the past few weeks, Sam, absolutely idiotic and self-defeating but why should the Republicans say hey listen we want to help you implement a program that we think will end private insurance over the next decade? That goes against everything I believe and millions and millions of Americans believe.

I love that bad man.
Could he be any sexier? I mean… Forget what he looks like. Doesn’t matter. (When was the last time he washed or combed that hair?) Don’t care. He could be human Wesson Oil for all I care. A gelatinous blob in search of an artery to clog. No matter… But what he said! AH!
(Partial transcript below.) Enjoy.
“I’m just going to tell you right now, I want to end it on a media bashing note because that will uplift me like a Dionne Warwick final rendition. We’re watching you to play the race card MSNBC….
This is going to be the dog whistle election cycle… Ed and Maddow can sit there and call everyone who’s Caucasian racist. ‘I heard it. He used ‘is’ instead of ‘are.’ He’s a racist. That’s a dog whistle.’
…I bought a dog whistle. I bought a dog whistle factory, and I’m giving you dog whistles. And we’re going to listen to every word that comes out of your mouth, and we’re going to hold you to the same standard that you hold us which is an impossible one… America’s finally woken to your Saul Alinsky bullshit tactics, and we’re coming to get you.”

At least they’re consistent.
HEADLINE: “BLACK TEA PARTY CANDIDATE’S SIGN DEFACED WITH ‘KKK’” (NewsBusters’ coverage here. Breitbart here.)
I’m thinking it wasn’t a pack of racist Republicans who did it.
I’m thinkin’ it was more likely a pack of racist Democrats, p*ssed off that he left the Democrat Plantation & f*cked up their narrative… which is why NOBODY has reported it.
If Sarah Palin cracks a loud FART, MSNBC is wall-to-wall with how she aimed it downwind to a black neighborhood.
And by “consistent” I mean that Democrats have been the party of racism from the first, just as they are the party of identity politics now. Oh, they cloak it in benevolent paternalism, but what it really is is a disgusting, sneering sense of superiority through which they maintain power at the expense of human freedom.
What’s that? You’re suffering from a Progressive education? You didn’t know that it has been the Republican party, from the first, and to the last, that has been the champion of liberty & self-empowerment for black, white – ALL people, and it’s Democrats who birthed the KKK and fomented the overwhelming majority of racist hatred towards blacks in America?
You forgot that Lincoln was a Republican? Hmmm? You forgot it was Republicans who broke the filibuster for the Civil Rights Act?
Democrats…When are you going to wake up that your party, which once had men like JFK to recommend it, has hopelessly devolved, has spawned a host of parasitic cockroaches infesting the media & halls of power, who are dangerously messianic in their belief that they know better than you how you should live your life and are thisclose to completing a century’s work of propagandizing the Republic right out of existence?
