The Tea Party Movement has been co-opted by Glenn Beck, Ron Paul Bot libertarians. If allowed to continue, unchecked, they are going to destroy any hope of retaking either the House or the Senate in 2010. They will doom our nation, destroy it, by allowing Barack Obama to cake-walk over the American People.
Libertarians are losers.
They have NEVER won.
They cannot win.
All they can do is siphon votes off various GOP tickets and turn elections over to the Democrats. The perfect example of this is in Minnesota and Senator Al Franken.
A war between Little Green Footballs and the far far extreme right has begun over Robert Stacy McCain. It seems there are those in the far right who just don’t want to admit that their current little darling, Robert Stacy McCain is an out and out racist, who worked for the WTimes and has connections to the very worst of them.
The Pink Flamingo has an entire archive about these individuals. Just follow the bouncing ball. LGF is right on this story.
BETRAYED BY FOX
Fox is not longer “fair and balanced.
Any myth that FOX is fair and balanced ended on Friday. For months The Pink Flamingo has been noticing the decidedly anti-Republican turn FOX News has taken. Please name one regular REPUBLICAN commentator or anchor with the exception of Mike Huckabee. There is NOT one.
Democrats: Shephard Smith, Brett Baier, Chris Wallace, Alan Combs
Conservatives: Sean Hannity, the morning crew, Gregg Gutfield, Fred Barnes, Brit Hume, Charles Krauthammer
Independents: Greta Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly has a man-crush on Obama
Libertarian: Glenn Beck (is in love with himself), Judge Napolitano, Neil Cavuto, Jonathan Hoenig, Alexis Glick (Napolitano is a Ron Paul Bot)
Far Right Conservatives: Michelle Malkin, Tammy Bruce, Laura Ingraham
Palin-Haters: Niccole Wallace
There is not one NORMAL Republican with the exception of Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter is a Republican but reasonable? Geraldo Rivera is a liberal Republican who is an Obama-lover.
Now we learn that John Stossel, yet another Republican hating Libertarian is joining FOX. He will be hosting a show for libertarians.
LIBERTARIANS WILL DESTROY THE US
Right now, the fight is about the survival of our nation and our freedom.
For those who don’t get it, the ongoing battle some conservatives and libertarians see fit to wage, to prove who is the most “pure” conservative, and who is the heir to Reagan is a joke. They are a joke.
This is a battle for our future.
It is about freedom.
It is about preserving our very lives, I am terribly afraid.
It is not about who who has a 90% ACU rating or who in the Senate is the most conservative voice.
This is a battle against the forces of evil, for we truly are up against evil. It is a battle against evil, disturbed and twisted men and women who are interested only in their pocketbook and their absolute power.
Perhaps as a nation we are being tested to see if we deserve to survive. If so, and we don’t get our act together and work together, maybe we don’t deserve to survive as a nation.
This is also a test of faith.
PURE CONSERVATIVES ONLY
Have you ever wondered who is calling the shots on just which Republican is “Pure” and just who isn’t? Case in point. Lindsey is treated like dirt by conservatives who absolutely adore Fred Thompson. Lindsey’s lifetime ACU rating is higher than Thompson’s, but Lindsey is not “pure”.
“Over the course of his time in Congress he [Former Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN)] earned a lifetime rating by the American Conservative Union of 86 percent. He was not quite as conservative (using 2002 numbers) as Rick Santorum (87), Strom Thurmond (91), Trent Lott (93), or Jesse Helms (99), but more conservative than Arlen Specter (42), Olympia Snowe (52), John Warner (82), and John McCain (84). [Yet, Hayes says: “(h)is voting record suggests a strong belief in federalism.”]…
The perfect example of the dastardly behavior of certain hard right conservatives is the way Lindsey is treated. Case in point.
The “Conservative” Civil War has everything to do with anyone who does not agree and march lock-step with them. They’re also not honest about things. The prefect example of this is a column by Zbigniew Mazurak on “The Reality Check” – which is as far from reality…
Marurak wrote about the following:
“…the „moderates”. These people say that if the GOP is to become competitive, it must adopt „moderate” (i.e. liberal) policies on the issues – ranging from a Cap and Tax scheme, to a weak military, to bailouts, to raising federal spending, to enacting stimuluses, to banishing oil corporations from the ANWR and the OCS. These people are led by John McCain, David Frum, Lindsay Graham, Arnold Schwarzennegger, Mitch Daniels and Kathleen Parker….”
What a lie. Lindsey is straight down the line conservative on every one of these issues. That’s the problem. Conservatives who read bunk like Newsmax and World Net Daily are terribly ill-informed, know-nothings who DO NOT have the best wishes of the GOP in their heart.
E. J. Dionne wrote some serious and true words about the GOP. If something isn’t done about the extremists trying to either take it over, or destroy it, we’re doomed. The good news for the GOP is only 9% of Americans view themselves as “Very Conservative”. Unfortunately this 9% wants to control the whole GOP. NINE PERCENT – GET IT? 31% see themselves as “conservative”. BUT – 35% see themselves as moderate. Get that?
Please don’t confuse the beginnings of a civil war between conservatives as a civil war within the GOP. It is about self-righteous conservatives who don’t have the intellectual honesty to admit they are not Republican, but will do anything possible to destroy good Republicans.
There is a fight looming within the far right. They want a purge of anyone who doesn’t agree with them.
Rush Limbaugh was feuding with Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes because they criticized him. Roger Simon is annoyed with Rush and Sarah Palin. (I do agree with him about Glenn Beck). He wrote:
“...It doesn’t matter what you say, as long as it is over the top and beneath contempt. “Adolf Hitler, like Barack Obama, also ruled by dictate,” Limbaugh said. “Hitler said he didn’t need to meet with his Cabinet; he represented the will of the people. He was called the messiah. He said the people spoke through him.”
Which means, I guess, if Hitler were alive today, he would be a talk show host…”
Hill Buzz is now calling Libertarians “Diaper Babies”. I’m loving it – and what a perfect description! It works for me. Remember, these are the people who are responsible for “Senator Franken”.
“…Can the diaper babies cut the screaming and wailing long enough to see the reason in this? Or will they take their toys and go play with a “Libertarian” candidate on the third party route, the way they threaten (and guarantee a Democrat win in the seat)? It’s frustrating this same nonsense plays out again and again in this town, but it’s the diaper babies’ favorite game, to be sure….”
THE ATTACK OF THE RON PAUL BOTS
A group of Ron Paul Bots, who have NEVER been affiliated with the GOP, have managed to get themselves elected to control a county committee. Naturally a lawsuit is in the works.
“...six other “Constitutional Republicans” were ineligible for election to the committee because they hadn’t been affiliated with the Republican Party for at least three months before their candidacy filing dates, and/or because they’d belonged to other parties within a year before filing, in violation of the state Elections Code….”
They have their undies in a wad because a group of Ron Paul Bots, pretending to be Libertarian Republicans have been shown the door in Florida. They’re nuts.
“…One of the chief complaints of the state’s Republican Party officials was the attendance and promotion of Ron Paul conventions and meetings. Does this mean that Florida’s Republican Party does not recognize Dr. Paul as a member of the party? Lindsey Graham, South Carolina’s flamboyant Republican Senator, who has gained recognition from the Obama administration recently over his support of Sotomayor and the government’s health care proposal, has also targeted Ron Paul in several speeches….”
