They Have to Decide if They Want to be Liberal — or Unhinged

For a while now I have been worrying about liberals.  Not all of them, of course, just most of them; especially the supposedly smart elite ones.

Some of the things they’ve been saying are more than a little screwy.  So I thought maybe they were going mad.  Now I have second thoughts.  Unfortunately they’re the same as my first thoughts.  Now I’m convinced they’ve lost their minds.

Before we start … a warning:  You may think I made up some of the following examples.  You may think I’m just having some fun at the expense of libs.  Nope.  Everything is real.  You know the old saying (that I just made up):  Out of the mouths of liberals comes some pretty wacky stuff.

First, there’s Old Reliable, Chris Matthews, the man who never lets you down when it comes to giving liberals a bad name.  During the GOP National Convention he suggested that when Republicans link Barack Obama to Chicago politics – (wait for it!) — they’re being racist.

“They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed?” Matthews said on MSNBC, also known as Obama Re-election headquarters.  “They keep saying Chicago.  That’s another thing that sends that message – this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs.”

That’s when another liberal, journalist and author John Hielemann, chimed in with, “There’s a lot of black people in Chicago.”

Get it?  Every time Romney tries to tie Barack Obama to crummy, corrupt Chicago politics, what he’s really doing is appealing to white racist Republicans, the only kind of Republicans there are, in the worldview of many elite liberals.

But if that was a 9.5 on the nutty scale, Matthews MSNBC colleague Lawrence O’Donnell hit the jackpot with a perfect 10.

O’Donnell was on the convention floor, and informed by MSNBC host Martin Bashir that later that evening Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell would tell the delegates, “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems. He hasn’t been working to earn reelection. He’s been working to earn a spot on the PGA tour.”

Here we have another ugly example of Republican racism, at least as far as Lawrence O’Donnell is concerned.  “We know exactly what he’s trying to do there,” he said.  “He’s trying to allied (sic) Tiger Woods, and surely the lifestyle of Tiger Woods, with Barack Obama. … These people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can find in every one of these speeches.”

So if you say Barack Obama spends too much time on the golf course and not enough time trying to fix the nation’s problems, that’s the Republican not-so-subtle way of reminding everyone that a) Barack Obama is black – like Tiger Woods – and b) that he has the same “lifestyle” which almost certainly means that the president – like Tiger Woods – fools around with women who aren’t his wife.

Thank you, Lawrence, for that brilliant analysis.  I would have never thought of it.  And neither would anyone else on the entire planet – except for people suffering from CDS – Conservative Derangement Syndrome, a terrible disorder that strikes liberals young and old whenever they come into contact – even through the TV screen – with anyone to the right of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

As Washington Post journalist Jennifer Rubin said on CNN: “MSNBC has to decide if it wants to be liberal or unhinged.”  I think we can agree that MSNBC has already made that decision.

And then there’s the hilarious “joke” from Yahoo! News Washington Bureau Chief David Chalian, who was caught on an open mic during ABCNews.com’s Webcast during the GOP convention.  With a major storm heading for the Louisiana coast while Republicans were having a good time in Tampa, Chalian said Mitt Romney and his wife Ann were “Not concerned at all.  They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning.”

Before you could say “Mitt Romney used to be the Grand Wizard of the Michigan Ku Klux Klan” Chalian was fired.  But is that fair?  After all, he only said what so many other liberals in and out of the media say about Republicans — when chit-chatting among themselves.  Chalian’s crime was saying it out loud into an open microphone.  (He later apologized.)

And you remember Clint Eastwood’s routine with the empty chair.  Bet you didn’t know the lousy bigot was just one more old, white Republican male spewing racism on national television.

Someone called Mike Elk, who is described as a labor journalist, tweeted, “Eastwood chair rant was RACIST, white man putting dirty words into mouth of black man like a puppet.”

And a blog on the left-wing Think Progess Web site weighed in with this: “You can’t escape the racial subtext of what happened last night.  Eastwood scolded an (imaginary) black man for his perceived slights to the American way in front of an audience of millions, and a sea of mostly white faces laughed and egged him on.”

There’s another old saying (that I did not make up but wish I did): “The only people who see everything through a prism of race are skinheads and liberals.”

    It is time the left was called out on this for exactly what it is: Liberal racism. Libs are about as racist as your average member of the Ku Klux Klan. Who else but a racist sees everything in these terms? I am happy to say none of these things would have occurred to me.

    It is not the same type of racism as the Klan. In its way it is actually more insidious, more destructive and clearly more dishonest.A Klan member is much more honest in his racism. He makes no bones about it. He hates blacks and you know up front where he is coming from. Libs are far worse. Theirs is the racism of ‘we pity you because you are black’. It is the condescending, paternalistic ‘you aren’t really adults and you can’t take care of yourselves and you need us, and of course our big government, to take care of you’. Why else do they hate, and that is the word for it, hate, people like Congressman Allen West, Herman Cain and any other successful African American who refuses to buy into the liberal doctrine of who and what they should be? These are people who did not accept ‘their place’ in liberal land and decided they were going to take care of themselves and not become a ward of the liberal movement. And, worst of all, because they refused to bow and scrape to liberal doctrine, they became Republicans and bought into the idea of individual responsibility for themselves. How dare they! And, they have the same attitude toward women. They too aren’t really adults, are not really capable of taking care of themselves and being responsible and accountable for themselves. Check out Obama and his ‘Julia’ going through life campaign. It is sexism at its worst. But they are never called out on it.

    These are among the reasons I have become so disgusted with the left in this country. Their true colors, making certain groups dependent upon them and government, are finally coming out in the open.

    Here is another scene that I thought very interesting. Imagine a trembling mother with her baby in her arms, a circle of invading Turks around her. They’ve planned a diversion: they pet the baby, laugh to make it laugh. They succeed, the baby laughs. At that moment a Turk points a pistol four inches from the baby’s face. The baby laughs with glee, holds out its little hands to the pistol, and he pulls the trigger in the baby’s face and blows out its brains. Artistic, wasn’t it? By the way, Turks are particularly fond of sweet things, they say.”

So old clint finally came out of the closet, the only way some people can be liked is if they are an actor but in reality they are just like any other bigot. Just like blacks who play blacks in movies, but in reality thay aren’t really black just observers of other blacks for the sole purpose of mimicking them in a movie.

    Liberals do not reason; they are incapable of logic. Read Ann Coulter’s book, “Demonic” to learn the true nature of liberals. Since liberals don’t believe in God, they have taken the doctrine of Liberalism to be their religion. For liberals, anyone who disagrees with liberal dogma is evil and a sinner against Liberalism.

    Bernie

    A major problem I have had for some time now is liberal racism. They are as racist as the Ku Klux Klan and the only difference is they feel guilty about it. Their racism is not the ‘we hate you because you are black’, it is actually worse, more insidious and damaging. Their’s is the racism of ‘we pity you because you’re black. You are victims and can’t really help yourselves. You’re not really adults and because of that you aren’t responsible for yourselves. You are not accountable for your actions and you need us (liberal elitists) to be sure the government takes care of you’. Who else but a racist thinks like they do as indicated by your examples? I am quite happy to say these things would not have occurred to me. They have the same attitude toward women. A serious misogynistic, sexist, bigotry. Women are not really adults. They are more like children that need libs to be sure the government is taking care of them. How else do you explain the ‘life of Julia’ from the Obama campaign website? And Sandra Fluke and her ‘we are entitled to free stuff” mentality? In their view, the only ones who are accountable are white men and it is their job to pay for all of the liberal feel good silliness they perpetuate.Continue to point out what racist, sexist fools they truly are.

          As one CPA to another, you know as well as I do that the 20
          million or more jobs that have been outsourced, which is solely responsible for America’s high unemployment, have not been outsourced because of high corporate taxes or excessive regulations.   It is all about cheap foreign labor and paying billions more
          in dividends to the top 1%,  the new ruling kings and queens, the
          Plutocracy – and screwing the middle class and poor in America.   All those corporations that have outsourced should be forced
          to bring those jobs back or be kicked out of America, with their factories and
          property taken under Eminent Domain and sold to Americans that will keep
          those jobs in America.

          Illinois Rail-Splitter, told his audiences that,

           

          “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital.  Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could
          never have existed if labor had not first existed.  Labor is the superior of capital, and
          deserves much higher consideration.” 1861The money powers prey upon the
          nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is
          more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish
          than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods
          or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in
          front of me and the Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my
          greatest foe.. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in
          high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to
          prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth
          is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.”The money powers, the Plutocracy will no longer prey upon the middle class and poor, each and everyone in the Plutocracy will be dragged down and made to pay and pay – anyone making over 1 million dollars should be taxed at 75% on the money over that million.  I would prefer to see FDR’s marginal tax rates or up to 90%!

    Some people can’t get out of bed in the morning unless they have before them, in their fevered minds, a grand vision of some great cause that they’re going to work towards that day.  Even if their contribution will be vanishingly small, their self-awareness and assumption of their great importance–being able to clearly perceive what other, lesser minds cannot grasp– gives them an incentive to get their asses out of the sack.  These are those deep, like really, really profound thinkers– the ones on the cutting edge, out in front, where the rubber  hits the road, the avant-garde of the avant-garde.  (In what miserable condition would the world be without them?)  These people are relatively easy to spot, even when they’re not in the lamestream media, some foul-smelling Occupy encampment, or in academia.  They’re the ones who, when asked a tough political question, don’t scratch their chins but furrow their seemingly troubled brows instead.  These are the people, in short, who add nothing to a rational evaluation of public issues.

    This is off topic, but P D Ryan is a big fat liar and most
    likely should be in jail for the Wisconsin contract he gave his brother Tobin
    while Tobin worked at Imagitas, an investment of Bain Capital.  In December 2001, Imagitas secured a contract
    with Wisconsin, whose then-governor, Scott McCallum, was a political ally of Congressman
    Paul Ryan. Wisconsin Congressman Ryan’s brother gets huge Wisconsin contract
    for his company Imagitas – this is dishonest as hell and Congressman Ryan and
    his brother Tobin should be in jail, along with Governor Scott McCallum!

     

    And, then all this crap about how PD Ryan and his mother
    needed Social Security Survivor benefits. 
    His Mom is now and was then a multi-millionaire and a snow-bird that
    lives in a $500,000 townhouse in a gated community in Florida.  PD Ryan, Tobin Ryan, and their Mother have never
    had go without anything. They all are wealthy elitists.  It is also funny the Tobin Ryan was an senior
    executive at Bain Capital before he and another Bain executive formed Imagitas
    with a $5,000,000 investment from Bain Capital. 
    Funnier that Imagitas worked for Governor Romney’s administration while
    he was Governor of Massachusetts – an obvious conflict of interests.  But Governor Romney destroyed most of the
    evidence by destroying hard drives.

     

    Funnier is how the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics would
    never have happened without a 2.5 Billion earmark from the Federal Government,
    which had Senator John McCain madder than hell. 
    The 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics did not happen because of Governor
    Romney, they happened because of the 2.5 billion from the Federal Government.  Funnier is how many of the financial records
    for these games were either lost or destroyed by Governor Romney.  I wonder how many lucrative contracts were
    gives to Mormons without completive bidding. 
    We will never know.

     

     

    Chicago, like all major cities has a  huge black population.  And, yes President Obama wants to help all
    disadvantaged in America.  Governor
    Romney cannot claim the same mission – all he says on that issue is that we
    have a sufficient “Safety Net,” which is elitist wealthy white-man BS. 

     

    What does the Mormon Church think about other Churches?  Here is a passage from the Book of Mormon:

     

    “Behold there are save
    two churches only; the one is the Church of the Lamb of God [i.e.. the Mormon
    Church] and the other is the church of the devil [i.e.. the Christian Church];
    wherefore whosoever belongeth not to the church of the lamb of God belongeth to
    that great church; which is the mother of abominations; and she is the whore of
    all the earth.” (The Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 14:10).

     

    How does Governor Romney, a
    devote Mormon, reconcile having a Catholic for his running mate?  Do most Christians know that the Mormon
    Church denounces all other Churches as the mother of abominations, whores of
    the earth?

        You need to read up Tobin Ryan and his employment at Bain
        Capital, and Imagitas, and the connection to Mitt Romney. 

         

        You can ignore the facts all you want, that makes you
        delusional, not me.  And, what do you
        know about the Mormon Church – most likely nothing – that is a good read
        too.  But, again, I suspect you are too
        closed minded to read the facts.  Your
        delusion is only exceeded by your ignorance.

        • Drew Page

          There you go again.   Citing unprovable “facts”.  I”m am sure there are those in Wis. that won’t vote for Paul ryan, but a majority did vote for him.  Further, if you have evidence and proof that either Paul Ryan or his brother Tobin did something illegal, present that proof to either the Attorney General for the state of Wisconsin or the Attorney General of the U.S.   I”m sure that Eric Holder would love the chance to bring charges against either or both.    So put up (your “facts” to the proper authorities) or shut up. 

          I don’t really know much about Mormonism, or the Church of Latter Day Saints, but I have never been harmed by one of its followers, have you?   There are those who worry about Catholics being Papists, the Jews controlling the media and the secret handshakes of the Masons.  Perhaps you should read up on these topics as well, but then again that might just enhance your paranoia.

          • George – CPA

            You may not have been harmed, but many blacks have been harmed.

            The Republican Party stated this nonsense with Religion
            during the 2008 Presidential election campaign by calling then Barack Obama a
            non-Christian and tons of BS about Jeremiah Alvesta Wright, Jr. and Barack Obama
            being a Muslim.  So, the fact that
            Governor Romney and Ann are devoted Mormons opens up the discussion to include
            the history of the Mormon Church, because it is relevant because the Mormon
            Church discriminated against Blacks until 1978 and taught that Blacks were cursed,
            and sex with black people was grounds to be killed, which would be murder.

             

            “Brigham Young said, “Shall I tell you the law of God
            in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed
            mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is
            death on the spot…”

             

            I have never heard Mitt or Ann come out publicly and
            denounce the Mormon Church for its racist practices prior to June 10, 1978 or
            ever.  Have you?  No, they haven’t and wont!  The question remains: how could Mitt Romney sit
            in that church for 31 years without questioning the racism of his church?

             

            Mitt Romney’s Dad marched with Rev. King, and his Mom also
            stood up for blacks; Mitt Romney claims he wept in his car when he heard about
            the Moron Church’s  June 10, 1978 decision to
            let Blacks be Mormon priests – that is it – nothing more!  Mitt or Ann will not go against their church
            and tell you that that Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were delusional racists,
            as were most of the Church Leaders and followers up to June 10, 1978.   The
            Mormon Church is full of very wealthy white racists.

             

            Let’s not forget that Bain Capital did not have one black
            employee –  but, you believe that Mitt
            Romney is not a racist.  You are full of
            BS.

             

            Tit for tat, Republicans.

             

            Most Americans have no clue about the crimes committed by
            the Moron Church and its founder and its megalomaniac founders –   1st
            prophet Joseph Smith and 2nd prophet Brigham Young.  What I am saying is all verifiable historical
            fact, versus the conjecture and lies about President Obama that have been pontificated
            profligately by Republicans.

      Shall we start listing the liberals ‘shenanigans’ when talking about conflict of interest and funneling money to family and friends? Shall we start with Pelosi first? You crack me up…’wealthy elitists’. Recording artists, over-paid sports players  and drug dealers are wealthy, too. But in the liberal mind, that’s different. YOU, Mr. Lewis, are a hypocrite and just plain jealous. For those who have money, regardless of how you got it, I say “GOOD FOR YOU! Spend it while you can!”

        I am not a liberal.  I think
        marriage is between a man and a woman.  I think the US Mexican border
        should have a double-fence and be manned with 30,000 troops, and lots of tanks
        and drones; and, all illegals sent home immediately.  Road blocks should
        be setup in all the Border States and major cities like Chicago, New York, Los
        Angels, San Diego, Sacramento, and anyone without the proper papers sent back
        to Mexico or wherever immediately, i.e., within a few days to a week, not years.
        It won’t be racial profiling because everyone will be checked.

         

        Governor Janice K. Brewer and Sheriff
        Joe Arpaio should be honored, given medals and praised for being true
        Americans.

         

        I am not familiar with Pelosi illegal
        deals, what are they?

         

        But, the Plutocracy has to be taken down
        – Trickle-Down-Economics is a big fairytale.  The Government has to be given back to the
        majority, the working class that makes America possible.  We should listen to what was said by
        President Abraham Lincoln:

         

        President Abraham Lincoln, the Illinois
        Rail-Splitter, told his audiences that,

        “Labor is prior to, and independent of,
        capital.  Capital is only the fruit of
        labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed.  Labor is the superior of capital, and
        deserves much higher consideration.” 1861

         

        President Lincoln also said:

         

        “The money powers prey upon the nation in times of
        peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a
        monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It
        denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon
        its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the
        Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe..
        corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will
        follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign
        by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the
        hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.”

  • Debby in Charlotte

    I am a small business owner in Charlotte, NC who has struggled to keep my business going  over these last 4 years, so many others, here, have gone under.  I am furious that the Democrats are here celebrating how much better off we are now than we were 4 years ago.  The audacity of them to say that in our city that is still suffering from almost 10% unemployment.
    The President is now saying that because he made a commitment to be home with his family every night by 6:30PM, he had less time to “buddy up” to the Republican members of Congress, and seems to be using that as some kind of excuse for not gettting things done???   Many of us would have loved to have spent more time with our families as we were working 15 hour days to take care of our families!
    Do any of you out there remember all of the parties that were going on at the White House in those early days……………as Americans were losing their jobs, their businesses, their retirement, the value in their homes??????

  • FloridaJim

    Democrats do not like blacks as friends they like and use them as victims for their endless tax-grabbing ideas but seldom hang out with them or invite them to their homes, as friends do. This is based on my experiences in neighborhoods and workplaces.

  • http://www.facebook.com/george.lewis.547 George Lewis

    I don’t know where to start with this one Sir Bernard
    Goldberg – but as always, you remain true to the new ruling class in America,
    the new Kings and Queens, the top 1%, the ruling Plutocracy. Even though you
    know that the Plutocracy has destroyed America by outsourcing over 20 million
    jobs, and is solely responsible for the lack of job creation in America, you
    are loyal to your cast, the top 1%.  You
    wealthy folks don’t care that over 20 million jobs have been outsourced to third
    world countries because you folks get  trillions more in dividends and can pay those
    above the glass ceiling exorbitant salaries and egregious bonuses; everyone
    else be damned! Don’t you know that greed idolaters will not inherit the
    Kingdom of God?

     

    We kicked out the greedy King, Lords, Dukes and the other
    members of the ruling Plutocracy once before in 1783 after we won the American
    Revolution; it looks like we will have to have another political revolution and
    kick the new kings and queens out, the new ruling Plutocracy, those in the top
    1%.  You time in power is short Lord
    Bernard, enjoy it while you can!

     

    Back to your article and racism.  The facts are as follows.

     

    Many of the Republican, Tea Party, and Libertarian members
    of Congress are racist.  They may not admit
    it or be card-carrying skinheads or Nazis, but they definitely are racists,
    e.g. John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, Michael Backman,
    Ron Paul, Rand Paul, etc.  They all have
    made numerous racist remarks.  

     

    The Plutocracy is full of racists.

     

    The majority of the Southern States that were in the Confederacy
    have millions of racists that will do anything to make sure blacks don’t get to
    vote to ensure that President Obama does not get reelected.  Texas is the Mother of all racist states; Utah
    is also very racist, most likely, thanks to the Mormon Church that did not
    admit blacks until 1978.   I know about Texas first hand.

     

    I worked in Texas from 1978 to 1990 as a professional – CPA.  I worked for what was once the sixth largest
    bank in the USA in their Texas internal audit department that employed about
    100 auditors in Dallas and Houston.  What
    was interesting is that there wasn’t one black person on the audit staff.  Actually there was not one black in the
    entire department, professional or clerical.  I was also the VP and Audit Manager of the
    Texas National Bank of Midland in 1990, there was not one black person working
    there; the bank President was a Mormon.

     

    Even the Mormon Church discriminated against Blacks until 1978
    when church leaders led by Spencer W. Kimbal declared they had received a
    revelation instructing them to reverse the racial restriction policy.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_people_and_Mormonism

     

    I went snow skiing in Utah in the early 1970’s.  I don’t think I saw more than a dozen black
    people at the airport, and there were none working at the ski resorts.  Utah was 91.9% white and 1.3% black in 2010;
    the percent of blacks had to be much lower in the 1970’s.  I talked to a few Jack-Mormons (i.e., those
    who drink alcohol and coffee, and smoke, and gamble) about getting a job in
    Salt Lake because I loved skiing.  They
    told me my chances were slim to none unless I became a Mormon.  That would help explain why so few blacks
    worked in Utah in the 1970s, since the Mormon Church did not admit blacks until
    1978.  The Mormon Church also controlled
    all the drinking laws; you had to become a member of the a club to get a drink
    and fill out membership forms and have a valid driver’s license.  The church monitored those membership forms
    to make sure no Mormons were drinking, according to the Jack-Mormons.

     

    I can’t find anywhere where Mitt Romney came out before the
    Mormon Church did in 1978 to defend black people and tell his racist Mormon
    leaders to let Blacks into the church.  What
    were the Mormon Church and Mitt Romney doing during the entire African-American
    Civil Rights Moment – 1955-1968?  The
    Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) cannot escape their racist
    past. For nearly 150 years, the Mormon Church had taught that ALL blacks were
    cursed.   I wonder if the Mormon Church
    posthumously baptized Reverend Martin Luther King like they have hundreds of
    Jews?   I wonder if the Mormon Church has
    posthumously baptized even one black person?

     

    Anyway, Governor Romney is a total elitist wealthy racist member
    of the Plutocracy, the wealthy top 1%.  And,
    so is his wife Ann, who raised 5 boys as a stay-at-home Mom, but managed to
    play lots of tennis at the Country Club. 
    I wonder how many nannies, chauffeurs, gardeners and maids she had to
    help her, while she raised those kids. My Mom was a true average America Mom,
    who had three kids in diapers and had to work part time to support the family –
    we lived in a two bedroom apartment.  We
    had no nannies, chauffeurs, gardeners or maids, and we did not belong to the
    local country club.  My Mom did not get
    to  play tennis or fly a million dollar horse  named Rafaica all around the world to be in
    Dressage competitions and the Olympics with kings, queens,  princes, princesses, and other nobility.  Ann Romney is a snob, at least that is what
    my 88-year old Mom thinks, just from listening to her.  Ann talks down to people, especially when she
    uses words like “You People.” I forgot, we are her peasants, her subjects. All middle
    class and poor women should Twitter Ann and let her know how most Americans
    view both her and Mitt, as pathetic snobs.

    They are already swooning….I unfortunately  am living in the hell of the DNC Cluster….as a native Charlottean I am appalled & for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my hometown, &  if I could sell my house in this market ….I would be gone! The money they have wasted….bleaching the sidewalks…yes!  Replacing lights that have been out on 77 for 10 yes 10 years, spray painting grass …it wasn’t green enough….I have seen it it is true & the worst, something like 15 tons of sand from the beach brought in for a sculpture of” the one”…..it looks a lot like an idol …..disgusting. We don’t care what people think about Charlotte…I have lived in the outskirts in Matthews for many years but we don’t care what they think of that either…..we NEVER wanted this the “uptown” (which was always downtown growing up)  idiots did all liberals I might add.  All the seats in the arena were replaced & will be put back as they were after this cluster leaves……cost 50 million!  The little b hussein (the mayor) just look for the one that has his head attached to big b husseins ass they are supposedly”good friends” ….is an idiot, so far we have been told they will not arrest the illegals that are riding on the undocubus, nor the occupy idiots that have taken over the parks & now they look like a hippie commune…bathing in the fountains that if I were to even step into not that I would but I would be arrested! Already the out lying areas have multiple robberies due to the fact that our esteemed Chief of Police Rodney Monroe told the world more or less all the cops would be downtown..uptown whatever the hell they call it…..so open season on the rest of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This used to be a nice little city safe, homey & you would see folks you knew….then the libs came……..it has been hell ever since & everyone moved either to the beach, mountains or out as we did…..but we still pay those enormous Mecklenburg taxes the highest in the state….we get nothing! Until the DNC Cluster comes & all of a sudden roads are fixed buildings washed , the homeless hidden, transit line another thing we did not want…moved . It was a nice place once but as all cities that fall into the hands of libs…..it will eventually fail…just hope I can sell soon as do many I know…..we don’t want another Atlanta…..after all it is just a few hours down the road if you like that sort of thing as for me I’m going the other way……and because we live in a so called rural area where the majority are reg Republicans….we are…..racist!  So until the Cluster is over we will stay at home except to try & get to work….thank God I don’t work in the Cluster area but close by…they have closed the roads out near us as I understand dignitaries will be staying close by……you can tell I am so thrilled…….is it Nov yet?!

    Great examples of liberal lunacy. Anytime a member of the liberal media uses the phrase “race card” that media person is in fact playing a race card. I notice a similar tactic where some liberals are accusing the Republicans of “unprecedented lying”. It is a new lie that the DNC has come up with: to lie about lying. The liberal media also like to pre-spin the news in order to be able to accuse Republicans of spinning the news. They have intelligence; too bad it is not used in a positive or constructive way.

    Today’s DemocRATS are beyond description.  Pathological liars, buck-passers, and most of them have a strong sense of ENTITLEMENT to whatever YOU might have.

    Liberals harbor a lot of guilt over racism.   They project their own guilt on to everyone and everything they see in order to clear their minds of it.  I rarely see true Liberals dating or marrying outside their race.   Conservatives actually date and marry outside their race in larger numbers.   Liberal guilt as it relates to racsim just and all the bullshit they direct at other people because of it just wears me out.

    The liberals all should be so ashamed of themselves and how they use “racism” for everything that they cannot have an answer for. I am so sick of them especially on MSNBC. The entire group of them are disgusting and pathetic and they call themselves journalists.  That is an insult to real journalism.  This is why their ratings are in the tank. What is really disgusting is that no one thinks that this is wrong. The entire “left wing liberal media” is pathetic. My question to them will be what will they have to talk about when Obama loses the election. If someone says anything negative about Obama we are called racists, yet they villified Geroge Bush and called him names every chance they got and no one seemd to think there was anything wrong with those comments. What about respect for the Office???? They claim that phrase when Obama gets a negative comment. He is a fraud and he lied to the American people since his last campaign and is still lying. All the “sheeples” in this country better wake up and face reality because if they don’t we are doomed to destruction of this great Country. Just imagine the damage this “fraud” can do as a lame duck President.  God help us.

  • Berryraymond

    Someone needs to be keeping a list of all the things the media is proping up Obama with.  Example.  Now when the job reports come out and it is somewhere around 8.3 unemployment, the report says, ” recovery slow but edgeing upward.”  When Romney gets in office the same jobs report will be 8.2 unemployment, and the media will say, “Romney fails to get the economy going”.  There must be several hundred of these that will suddenly change overnight.

  • floridahank

    There are two types of voters — idiots who don’t read or analyze anything but follow their Party’s  endorsements– 95% are Democrats.
    I do believe the majority of Republicans look at issues and look at what Obama has done to the USA in nearly 4 yrs.  How can any reasonable, concerned voter not vote the bum out and get R& R in to straighten out our nation.  A no-brainer!

            On this website, I’ve defended waterboarding and much stronger methods in certain situations.

            I defended Clarence Thomas, both personally and professionally, against some lowlife who parroted left-wing talking points but didn’t have the decency to back up any of his statements.

            I defended Gov. Romney as a man of integrity and Mormononism. 

            I was very apprehensive about repealing DTDT in the military, although I haven’t expressed it on this website.

            I opposed gay marriage in the past and now am on the fence.  Is that conservative?

            I’ve said that Democrats shouldn’t make hay out of Gov. Romney’s simple misstatements or his stiffness.

            These are what immediately come to mind.  There are others.

    I’m trying to imagine how many trillions of dollars have been spent sending our childred to universities thinking we were doing them and our country a favor. Some survived the years of  reprogramming and graduated to become productive citizens. They vast majority were molded into the most dangerous and hateful aminal on the planet, the liberal progressive. They will manifest their hate for our constitutional republic again this November. Maybe we should dump the America hating liberal faculty from our universities before they have a chance to get their hands on another one of our kids. Maybe it’s too late already.

    I think the mountain Romney has to climb is higher then anyone has mentioned. Not only is every media outlet, print,TV, internet, pushing the liberal party line but the only conservative leaning TV station is trying to be fair and does not come off as backing Romney completely. Brit Hume is fair and gives his honest view but is sometimes to critical of Romney. Rove, Charles all say what they believe but are not the cheerleaders the other side has. One side pounds the table and the other side has a low key conversation. On a higher level BUT…

    The ending quote is great and its needs to be on a bumper sticker.

  • UnaffliatedVoter

    In the short term liberals calling everyone who dares have an opposing viewpoint a racist is tedious and offensive to those who have been true victims of racism, but in the longer term all this throwing the term around callously will render the word impotent. Kind of like if someone says that guy is “cool” one’s first thought isn’t to check the guys temperature.  Maybe racist will come to mean “to have one’s character falsely besmirched”.  Of course when true racism occurs at that point it won’t be taken as seriously, but liberals don’t really care about that.  They really don’t grasp the whole idea of actions having consequences well.

  • Randy

    I swear on the Holy Bible that if John Lilly White Kerry or Al The Idiot Gore were in office and doing the same things as Mr. Barak Not My Fault Obama, I would be just as against it and just as scared by it.  If that makes a a racist then so be it.  I and many others are growing tired of this one sided, you’re a racist if you criticize or disagree with liberals.  I really hope the keep flying off the handle with this.  The more they do it, the more obvious it becomes and the quicker they put the final nail in their coffin.  Does that make me a racist to want this current zeitgeist dead and buried?

    Of course. What did you expect? That Liberals would be “rational”, “logical” “humans” would fairly critique what went on at the Republican National Convention? (Please not my use of the quotation marks in describing the Liberals). It would be about like expecting the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (or someone like Mahmoud Ahmedinajad) to “play nice” with the Jews. And that, I think, is saying something quite obvious.

      C’mon Jerry, don’t try to put all the liberal eggs into one basket. That is exactly what they attempt to do to conservatives. I bet, if we got the extremists out of the way, most Americans could agree on a lot of issues. Take illegal immigration. Seventy five percent of the country wants our laws enforced. Simple right?? No, because the ten percent on the far right and the ten percent on the far left want exactly the opposite for completely different reasons. The republican establishment wants unfettered cheap labor and the unhinged democratic party doesn’t want to upset those who have broken our immigration laws. The problem is the cesspool that our country’s politics have become through the takeover of special interests pushed by lobbyists and corruption. “We The People” need to fix Washington, if we are to ever expect things to change for the better. Now, go vote Barry out.

Their ratings are insignificant as compared to Fox which I believe is an indicator of what the   vote tally will be………..When Obama loses however, their ratings will go sky high because everybody will tune into them to watch the most amusing entertainment ever.

    Matthews is the biggest racist on TV. My Momma told me long ago that the one who yells thief the loudest is usually the biggest thief in the room. It’s much the same with racism. The one’s who yell racism all the time are the real racist. I don’t even dwell on race. There is no need too. When someone tells me I don’t like Obama because he is black, I know I’m dealing with a racist.

    Another statement by Mr. Tingle was after Condoleezza Rice’s speech. (Not a direct quote, but the essence of his statement.) He said that the speech was wonderful and said it slammed on those who attack Obama’s background. What?! Then, with Andrea Mitchell interviewing Dr. Rice, he cut in and said her speech was wonderful and asked whether it was a counter to the birthers. This guy is out in left field! I believe it was during a primary, I recall hearing him say that the one of the Republican candidates only needed to appeal to the people with the lowest IQ, when speaking about the southern voters. And that wasn’t inappropriate?

    This culture of “call it racist” created–ignited and fueled– by the liberals (media/politicians especially) is why I am convinced that Romney is WAY ahead of Obama right now, but the polls will never show it. There are so many Americans who are MUM and will simply pull the curtain on election day and vote “Romney.” They will NOT, however, speak about beforehand–for fear of being called a RACIST!!!

    People are SICK of it–and rightfully so. Because of the media and the libs (much the same group), Obama’s presidency has moved race-relations back DECADES when it should have moved it forward. It’s sad that THEY squandered this opportunity! SAD!

    99% of the Liberals give the 1% a bad name!!!  Bernie, I don’t know what took you so long to realize that the mutated liberal virus has been running its course through the veins of liberals for decades.  The radical progressive liberals (Marxist/Communists/Socialist combination of all three) have taken over the Democrat Party and the Liberal Media.  Putting Obama at the top of the ticket was the final act of decades of behind the curtain activities amongst the radicals.   If their is ever a third party it will come out of the Democrat Party if they have any desire to survive to fight another day.  What is sad is that a very smart man like Bernie Goldberg has taken so long to recognize these facts about the Democrat Party and the Liberal media. 

    Now I am beginning to realize why Bernie refuses to recognize that Barack Hussein Obama is a complete fraud, a criminal and an Alinsky liar, he wants to give these elite criminals the benefit of the doubt.  It is always a good thing to have a kind and gentle heart but when it comes to saving our country men like Bernie need to step up and expose this criminal activity before the damage is so horrendous that it cannot be repaired.   Obama has created a Constitutional crisis that needs to be dealt with, not tomorrow but yesterday. 

    Again I ask, if this criminal activity (forged birth certificate, forged selective service registation and fraudulent SS#, etc) were associated with a rich, white, Mormon Republican do you think he would get a free pass as this Usurper in Chief is getting?

    Okay,got it. Obama is not the President of the United States.

    The behavior of the MSM has me thoroughly convinced that the really powerful Left wing movers and shakers understood that if they wanted to get a fellow Left winger elected in order to purposely try to do as much harm to the country as possible, it would make perfect sense for that person to be the 1st Black President, so that if anyone dared to accuse them of sabotaging the country, they’d be instantly

  • Jlclark

    These are just a few examples in a long line of liberal racism. Another example that makes me chuckle is the liberal PC media insistence that their news articles about an unsolved crime … ones in which they ask readers with information to contact CrimeStoppers or whatever … not mention the race of the perpetrator. They will say that he wore a blue shirt but won’t say the race. The only rationale for doing that is that they do not want to encourage a stereotype that they have, or that they presume that their ignorant readers have. Or they include a “warning” that the reader should not think that race is sufficient to identify the perpetrator (like if they say a murder was committed by a 6’3″ black man weighing 250 pounds, without the warning their racist readers will overwhelm the police call with tips about a 5’3″ black woman weighing 120 pounds).

      Of course, the defintion for Liberalism doesn’t match today’s left.  There is no listing for Conservatism

      Liberalism -in politics, a position that favors liberty as a political value. Liberalism has taken many meanings throughout history, but commonalities include a focus on individual liberty, democratic republicanism (liberal democracy), and equality under the law.

      BAHAHAHAHA  My MIL has a PHD in Philosophy and now I understand why her logic is warped.

      • kcinco

        “liberalism, political doctrine that takes protecting and enhancing the freedom of the individual to be the central problem of politics. Liberals typically believe that government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others; but they also recognize that government itself can pose a threat to liberty.” Encyclopedia Brittanica.  @weRBroke  Definitions contained in Wikipedia can be added to, deleted, modified by anyone who thinks they have the true definition of a term; therefore, I personally do not trust what I read in that resource.  If someone can be a registered “Conservative” as opposed to “Republican” or “Democrat,” then couldn’t the principles of “conservatism” be an accepted doctrine? Does it have to exist in Wikipedia to be valid? Your last sentence in your response makes no sense to me.  Inside joke? 

        • weRbroke

          Lighten up.  I know that WIKI is about as reliable as a tube sock for a condom. 

          I find it odd that Liberalism gets a political doctrine, thus validity in the Intellectual realm, but Conservatism is not formally recognized as a political ideaology.

        Lets not pretend Matthews is a liberal.  He’s a fanboy to whoever is in power.  He fawns over whoever he sees as holding the real political power in Washington.
