Being Extreme Far Right is a losing proposition.
They cannot win.
(According to a Pink Flamingo source, some of the “extreme far right” tea party types are actually Dems!)
“…”Today’s comments were an insult to the thousands of Americans who lost loved ones on Sept. 11 and the military men and women who are overseas protecting our country,” Perry said in a statement. “President Bush worked tirelessly to protect our nation from additional terrorist attacks and anyone who would suggest Sept. 11 is a conspiracy involving the Bush administration should be ashamed.”
In her response to Medina, Hutchison said, “I know exactly who was responsible for the horrific attacks on Sept. 11 — Al Qaeda terrorists who declared war on America.”
“To suggest otherwise is an affront to the men and women who are sacrificing their lives to root out the terrorists in Afghanistan and around the globe,” the Texas senator added. “Ever since that tragic day, I have fought tirelessly to ensure that we hunted down the Islamic extremists who target our nation. No one stood closer to President Bush and Vice President Cheney in their efforts to defeat the terrorist threat to our freedom.”…”
Look at the last three elections – all won by Republicans – who ran a NORMAL campaign reaching out to NORMAL people. Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell, and Scott Brown are NOT far right.
So – instead of winning, they hate. They hate anyone who is rational and might get the best of them. Their hate is so extreme there are some conservatives who are threatening the very security of our country.
Malkin slammed GWB by using Glenn Beck’s ongoing lie.
“…No, I don’t miss having a corporate socialist Republican in the White House any more than I like having a corporate socialist Democrat in the White House now….”
Do they comprehend that their version of “conservative” rarely if ever wins. Do they comprehend that their little tea party libertarians are LOSERS? (If Debra Medina keeps up her libertarian tea party attacks, Texas will end up with a Dem governor. She will lose independents.)
MCCAIN PICKING UP CONSERVATIVE ENDORSEMENTS
Contrary to popular opinion, John McCain is picking up endorsements from Bill Bennett, Grover Norquist, and according to one source is close to picking up a tacit endorsement of Dick Armey and his little tea party bunch. Ummm…isn’t J. D. Hayworth more pure? Malkin is furious because Armey is not damning McCain. Thing is, when the shouting is over and the tea has been slurped, Dick Armey is a Republican. Michelle Malkin is NOT a Republican but does not have the intellectual honesty to admit she is not.
“…“Hayworth’s views, if you put them both on paper, probably are closer to my views, but I gotta support McCain ’cause he’s the man,” Bennett said on his “Morning in America” radio show. “He’s the man who stands in the breach. He stood in the breach in Iraq, would rather lose the election than the war. He’s the only guy who really stood up last week, that I noticed, probably a couple of others, on this ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ (debate). And he would want my support — and he would ask for it, I believe — and he’s going to get it.”…”
“…“J.D. Hayworth, the challenger, needs to explain why he lost his House seat, OK?” Norquist told Broomhead. Rep. Harry Mitchell, D-Ariz., ousted the six-term Hayworth in 2006. “If you can’t get yourself re-elected to your House seat, what do you bring to the table on a Senate race? When you throw away your House seat, or throw away a race like that, it’s very expensive to the rest of the party. One needs to focus on these things: getting oneself re-elected.”
Norquist continues: “He (Hayworth) needs to make the case, that at a time when Tea Party activists and conservative activists and Republican regulars are being asked to raise tens of millions of dollars to win Senate seats in Delaware and North Dakota and Massachusetts, for crying out loud, why should we be asked to split up our time, energy and money to replace a perfectly good, in working condition Republican who consistently votes against tax increases and for spending restraint.”…”
The ultra conservative Christian Coalition has just come out praising Lindsey. They are supporting his drive for energy independence. If they understand what is going on, why can’t idiots on the far right – oh, wait – they hate him.
Evidently there are some who think that Sarah Palin is too liberal. In fact there appears to be an entire group of idiots who think illegals should be shot on sight. This goes beyond tea party. Looks like something very, very nasty to me. But, they are “true conservatives”? They are scary, very scary!
TEA PARTY “PATRIOTS”?
Show me a “Republican” who is running as a Tea Party “independent” and I will show you a loser who has no hope of going anywhere near the nomination. Like the spoiled little immature brats they are, they do not play honorable, nor do they play by the rules. If they play by the rules they remain exactly what they are – LOSERS.
“…Regardless of their chances of victory, their candidacies represent a milestone with potential implications for America’s increasingly fractious electorate. Because while the idea of secession is simmering in states such as New Hampshire, Texas, Alaska and Hawaii for years — and lately gaining momentum thanks to the same currents of discontent fueling the Tea Party’s rise — this is the first time a secessionist group has fielded multiple candidates for statewide office since the Civil War….”
NOW you know why The Pink Flamingo detests the whole tea party movement. It is being used and manipulated by individuals who do not have this country’s best interest at heart. I would go so far to say they are people who are far more despicable as any of Barack Obama’s liberal supporters. Obama’s supporters want to turn the US into their liberal utopia. The secessionists want to destroy the country.
“…”The only hope is to just say, ‘Look, this isn’t working for us. We want to start fresh again, with a real democracy,‘” Garritano told The Associated Press. “I think that’s the answer. Hopefully, it won’t take another horrible economic breakdown to realize that the people running things don’t look out for the little guy, or us, or the soldiers. It’s all about profit and getting the last drops of oil on Earth and trampling people’s rights.” …”
When I read things like this it makes me extremely angry and fighting mad. It also terrifies me and brings me to tears. Not only is it happening in Vermont, but it is also happening in Texas.
“…A spokeswoman for the movement told AFP on Jan. 26 that it’s only known that the conference will not be in March. So, it will have to be in April or later. The underlying premise in Texas, Alaska, Tennessee, Vermont and other states flirting with secession is stated in the Declaration of Independence: “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”…”
I gather these people want to destroy the country then make Ron Paul their god. (The Pink Flamingo is disappointed in Sarah Palin for endorsing Rand Paul, who is NOT conservative, but a Ron Paul Clone).
Have you had a chance to catch the History Channel’s hard-hitting expose of Sherman’s March to the Sea? It is something The Pink Flamingo never thought to see – a factual telling about the abject brutality of Sherman and his “total war”. They also tell the truth about Sherman’s abject contempt for the freed, former slaves and his contempt for African Americans in general.
What went on in South Carolina and Georgia was horrific and brutal. Maj. General William Tecumseh Sherman allowed horrible vengeance upon those two states because of secession. What the South did was vile and evil. They nearly destroyed this country. But – the South did not deserve what Sherman did to it.
Sherman’s determination to live off the land like locusts, destroying freed slaves if necessary, in order to survive. What Sherman did to win today would be considered criminal, and he would end up hanging for what he did. Sherman got away with what he did because Lincoln allowed it. That’s like here in NM, General James H. Carleton did to the Navajo with the Long Walk.
This is NOT a discussion about Lincoln, the Civil War, or the vicious brutality of Sherman and what he inflicted on South Carolina and Georgia. This is about the modern day Secession Movement, Ron Paul Bots, Losertarisn, and Tea Party Freaks.
While I was watching the expose of Sherman’s March, when the part of the story about the Yankees marching through South Carolina’s Salt Marshes brought me to tears. Sherman used the same tactic to bring the South to its knees as Francis Marion did to bring the Brits to their knees less than 100 years earlier.
Today there are people who are so damn self-righteous that they are determined to destroy our country and our good people in office because they want something different. Their ideas are delusional, narcissistic, and a bit sociopathic.
Adam Fogle rightly points out that the secession freaks are basically Ron Paul Freaks, you know the losers – the same jerks who are attempting to destroy Lindsey. Talbert Black, one of these losers, is involved with the Campaign for Liberty, which is actively involved in the tea party thingie.
“…Essentially, these are a lot of the same black helicopter Ron Paul folks that are going after Republicans in South Carolina.
But, to their credit, these individuals have gone out and started their own party rather than trying to hijack the Republican Party and contort it to meet their demands. So, much respect to these Vermont folks.
I still think there’s no need for secession — in South Carolina, anyway. And I’m pretty certain they’ll get crushed at the polls. But I respect that they’ve gone out and formed their own group rather than trying to clandestinely infiltrate the GOP….”
