The Pink Flamingo wants to make a prediction. In six months, Sarah Palin, the darling of the Tea Party “patriots” will be the far right’s public enemy #2, right up there with Lindsey.
She is showing her true – VERY RED – colors!
Sarah Palin is making money off the whole thing. She is not doing this for charity. And – now that the idiots are realizing that they must pay speakers, the you know what that drops out of the rear of Alaskan carribou is about ready to hit the fan.
“…The Tea Party convention, for one, is charging $549 per person for the event—no doubt to pay for Palin’s speaking fee, reportedly as high as $100,000—which has left some supporters queasy about the entire production. “This is the beginning of the end of it as a ground-up movement. Let the co-optation begin,” writes one pro–Tea Party blogger. The buckracking echoes the arrival of groups like the Tea Party Express, which used the name of the grassroots insurrection to raise funds for a longstanding Republican political action committee. As Stephanie Mencimer has reported, such developments have led to major clashes with groups like the “Tea Party Patriots,” who’ve adhered to the anti-establishment, grassroots ethos that originally founded the movement…”
The Pink Flamingo is loving every minute of it.
The Pink Flamingo has been right about Sarah Palin all along (thank heavens) and she is not a far right fringe third party idiot. She is a Republican. Praise the Lord!
Who knew that John McCain would be seen as the leader of the GOP in this Tea Party “patriot” era? A new Harris Poll points to the fact that perhaps things aren’t as extreme as the Far Right and the Ron Paul Bots would like one to think it is.
“..Other Republican leaders who are viewed by many people as influential and as leading voices in the party include former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, McCain’s vice presidential running mate and former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. These six Republicans, all of whom would probably like to be the next Republican presidential candidate, are seen as about as influential as each other. But more people see Palin and Limbaugh as leading voices of the party, and Palin scores more highly among Republicans….”
Interestingly, this is not a “inside” conservative thing, but a general poll. There are those who think the “tea party movement” is going to become to the GOP what MoveOn.org is to the DNC. If so, we have a problem. MoveOn has done more to push the DNC farther left than anything we could possibly imagine. If the “tea party movement” decides to do the same thing with the GOP, we will be in serious trouble. Even Ron Paul appears to be throwing the Tea Party “patriots” under the bus.
Let me state up front, Populist Movements and Populism absolutely repulse me.
Having spent so many years dealing with the after-effects of serious abuse when I was a child (3rd grade elementary school principal) I have a tendency to be rather analytical when dealing with people and groups of people. I also do not mind admitting I am rather stand-offish, do not join things, do not do crowds, and avoid meetings and conferences like the plague. When recovering from serious abuse, if a person wants to “normalize” their personality, then you learn how to look at the world much differently from what you once did. You become highly critical of yourself and learn how to take absolute responsibility for your actions. (I think this is a 12 Step thing, also). In a way you start viewing things with a little bit of cold blooded Vulcan logic.
This said, one of the things I’ve also learned is that there are certain personality types who absolutely refuse to take responsibility for their own action and blame everyone around them. They deal in absolutes, and can be absolute bullies when it comes to their absolute requirements.
Have you ever had someone with whom you had a romantic interest who was more demanding than “usual”? The world must revolve around them. You know something isn’t “quite right” but you just can’t figure what it is, so you end up surrendering a portion of your personality to that person in order to keep peace. Before long you are going to be required to surrender more and more if you do not want your “loved” one shouting profanities, slamming you against the wall, or withdrawing their presence from your life. (Yea, I had one fiancé who wanted to know if I could survive if he withdrew his presence from my life).
There is nothing wrong with a healthy ego and a healthy sense of self. When an ego and a sense of “self” becomes so over-whelming that other egos and another sense of “self” cannot shine through, then we are dealing with a personality disorder. The loved one has a temper tantrum because something does not go their way. While I can see having a tantrum once in awhile, primarily for righteous indignation, having a tantrum when something does not go your way is the sign of a very emotional stunted individual.
The loved one manipulates. They threaten. They blackmail. If they do not get their desired results they destroy. The more civilized person simply destroys the spirit and emotional well-being of those they “love”. If the person does not have certain parameters of a civilized behavior they will literally inflict bodily harm and eventually, if not stopped, kill the object of their “love”.
In other words, there is a certain kind of person who is so certain they are right that they will stop at nothing to prove they are right, and will destroy in order to prove their point. There are times when these individuals happen to be on the fringes of society they have a tendency to bond with other like minded bullies. Their sense of individualism is not as well developed as they project. They become a “group” and a mob. Enfranchised by other like minded individuals, they become more embolden and more extreme.
Some people call it populism. I call it a mob. They are no different from the people who collected around Oliver Cromwell, John Brown or William Quantrill. Left alone, our little bully is simply going to destroy his/her spouse or loved one. As a mob they are terrifying and can bring down monarchies, murder hundreds of people, or help instigate civil war.
The Pink Flamingo is beginning to wonder just how many Republicans are willing to stand up to the Ron Paul Bots and have the courage to PURGE them from grass-roots GOP leadership positions through out the country. My sources tell me in Oklahoma the purge is on. Evidently in South Carolina, only Lindsey had the courage to stand up to these nut-jobs, and now they are taking their revenge. The real crime – with only a few exceptions, The Palmetto Scoop, CNN and The Pink Flamingo NO ONE is reporting what actually happened at the meeting. The far right is so far gone in their hatred of Lindsey that they would rather lie about what happened.
On Monday night the Lexington County GOP voted 13-7 to censure Lindsey. The Ron Paul Bot who engineered the illegal procedure, Talbert Black is NOT a Republican. Black, a Ron Paul Bot nutcase is the idiot who promoted the illegal procedure.
“…Talbert Black, of Lexington, believes Graham has tried to marginalize him and others, noting a comment the senator made in October that the GOP does not want to limit itself as a party of angry white men. “When you have somebody so willing to compromise with those who aren’t conservative, and belittles those who are conservative, we need to do something about that,” said Black, the state coordinator of Campaign for Liberty, a group dedicated to personal liberty and fiscal conservatism that spawned after Paul’s 2008 presidential campaign. As precinct president, Black proposed the resolution while filling in for a committeeman. Graham said Black, a 40-year-old software engineer, had never voted for a Republican presidential nominee; Black said he hasn’t voted for his party’s presidential pick since 1992….”
There is a war brewing in the GOP, caused not by Republicans and not by actual conservatives, but by the slobbering minions who follow Ron Paul and his freaky message of appeasement, conspiracy theories, and outright hate.
The very real problem is the fact that very few of those who are part of the Far Right and are not Ron Paul Bots have the courage to stand up against the fake conservative onslaught of their attack. Add that with the fact that there are very few Republicans who have the actual courage to stand up against them and we have what could be a serious crises.
The Tea Party “patriots?” are now threatening the GOP. How much longer are we going to put up with these …Read the Rest
Which came first, the tea party movement or Glenn Beck’s big mouth? Are they simply a figment of Beck’s ambition or are they an actual populist movement?
Is Beck a bad influence on Sarah Palin who is hinting about a Third Party run in 2012?
Regular Pink Flamingo readers should know by now that The Pink Flamingo has been less than complementary of the tea party movement, the methods, leadership, and the dubious associations involved in it. Would there be a tea party movement without Beck’s ego or FOX News? Somehow I doubt it.
Rasmussen now has information that Beck’s monster is going after the GOP like PACMAN. The real problem is there is no outlet for positive news about the GOP. We are hammered on all sides. Far Right Talk Radio is killing us. The only rational person out there is Michael Medved. FOX is now the property of Losertarians. Republicans do not get a break or positive coverage.
Very few blogs are like The Pink Flamingo, willing to state out front they are Republican and are interested in rational conservative behavior. But, there is no normal. There is no rational. There are only Glenn Beck, Losertarians, far right talking heads, and blogs who do nothing but denigrate the GOP.
You read the title correct. On Saturday, The Pink Flamingo had the misfortune to listen to Glenn Beck’s weekend edition …Read the Rest
There is nothing more fun than watching all the little nativists go at one another’s throat. This video is no exception. In it Jim Gilchrist says all sorts of nasty things about William Gheen, Ron Paul, Chris Simcox, Sheriff Joe, Ron Paul Bots. It is just way much fun – way fun. Way way fun! The best part is the stuff he says about Barbara Coe, and how racist the Ron Paul Bots are!
Seriously, this is not fun. This is bloody serious.
The Feathered Bastard has all the lucious dirt – and it is lucious! It is a thing of beauty. So – just sit back and enjoy the show. It is worth every minute. The Pink Flamingo is enjoying it, that’s for sure! The video was taken by an untra left activist, but it is a masterpiece!
FIRST: When someone uses the epitaph “RINO” they ARE NOT Republicans. They are Third Party Conservative Losers, but they are NOT Republicans. AJ Strata is right. If these people could decently align themselves with the GOP they could help us win. Unfortunately – there is nothing decent about these people. The worst of it is the fact that Chuck DeVore, who is running against Carly Florino in CA, is going after Lindsey. DeVore is one of those far right idiots you’d better watch. He and his are going to help damn us to Dem rule, forever. Then again, GOD wants DeVore,t from what I gather. Of course we could simply be dealing with more conservative lies. They really don’t give a damn about honor and integrity any more.
Take the way Charleston’s GOP has treated Lindsey:
“…Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) can’t seem to catch a break, as Kate Sheppard notes for Mother Jones. The Republican Party of Charleston County, S.C. unanimously voted to censure Graham for working with Democrats on a climate bill. Charleston Country Chairwoman Lin Bennett argues that Graham has “weakened the Republican brand” and that “his work on climate legislation is the last straw.” In addition, the American Energy Alliance, a shady industry group that benefits from blocking clean energy, has reportedly spent $300,000 on advertisements to rebuke Graham for his support on climate legislation. Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly argues that Graham’s censure is particularly ridiculous because Graham has one of the most conservative voting records. According to VoteView analysis, Graham is currently the 18th most conservative member of Congress. Evidently, that is still not enough for South Carolina Republicans….”
SECOND: We must stand together to fight ACORN and the SEIU.
THIRD: Newt is right about a new contract with America. The problem is the lying duplicity of conservatives who think they are better than we Republicans are. Compared to Newt, Beck is nothing but a seriously disturbed little snot who is doing everything possible to destroy this country in order to make money.
Case in point from Allahpundit:
“...Actually, he says Steele’s working on a statement of “first principles” which might serve as the seed for a new Contract-type platform. Which is super, except that the GOP’s whole problem right now is that conservatives don’t believe them anymore. They have no credibility with the base, which is why (a) Republican party ID is on life support even as “conservative” self-identification is ticking upwards, (b) CPAC’s handing its keynote slot to the main challenger of the NRSC’s favored candidate, and (c) grassroots conservatives are flocking to self-styled “outsiders” like Palin, Doug Hoffman, and Glenn Beck, who’s got plenty of “first principles” ideas of his own to offer them….”
NOTE TO ALLAHPUNDIT: Beck is a Losertarian. Hoffman is a Beck acolyte, and Beck is out to destroy the GOP. Anyone who works with him is duplicitous in his repulsive perfidy.
Of course, if people like Eric Erickson have their way, a race war will erupt between the idiots on the right. This is just way too funny – and disgusting, and shows just how pathetic these yahoos really are.
The far right is making a mess in Florida. Then again, Florida could simply be Florida, and the state is suffering because there is no strong leader like Jeb Bush (which also says something about the national GOP and his big brother).
“…The divide goes beyond former House Speaker Marco Rubio’s challenge to Gov. Charlie Crist in next year’s primary for the U.S. Senate. There are also divisions over party leadership and party message that have resulted in the unusual sight of contested primaries in five statewide contests. Those factions include Crist loyalists, allies of Bush upset with Crist, as well as some who are loudly critical of Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer.
While tensions have simmered since Crist veered onto a moderate, and occasionally populist, path starting from nearly his first day as governor, it was Crist’s decision to forgo a second term and seek the U.S. Senate that has helped move these battles out into the open.
Mirroring a national debate, Florida’s GOP is split over whether to move further to the right, embracing its conservative roots, or to expand its tent to reach more moderates and independents….”
There is a power-play by those in power, who want more power.
“…Conservatives refuse to back off.. “The real power of the Republican Party right now is in a burgeoning, strong … grass-roots movement,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, of the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List. “The more out of touch [the GOP leaders] are with their natural base, the more elections we’ll lose.”
There is no actual civil war within actual GOP ranks. The incivility comes from those who are NOT Republicans. If the brain dead right is calling the shots, then Mike Huckabee would not continue to be the “front-runner“.
The Tea Party People are now threatening anyone who doesn’t do exactly what they say to do. They are nothing but the usual cyclical populist movement, empowered this time by cable television and the internet. You will find the average Tea Party Person either voted for Ross Perot, Ron Paul, or embraces their philosophy of abject stupidity.
“….From the perspective of Gingrich and other veteran Republicans, there is deep irony in these untoward developments. Many of the Tea Party types actually hate Republican politicians, unless, like Ronald Reagan or Barry Goldwater, they are already dead. They hate Democrats, too, of course — and lots of other people — but their invective against Republicans is suffused with special outrage.
If they have their way, every Republican who doesn’t adhere to the Beck canon will be driven out at the end of a pitchfork, just like poor Dede Scozzafava.
Fifteen years ago, when Newt rode to power on the resentments of the religious right, the gun lobby and the economic royalists, he celebrated their extremism as the political style of “normal Americans.” Today when he hears the violent rhetoric, the hateful threats and the fanatical intolerance, he knows they are talking about him, too…”
Pink Flamingo friend and confidant, Sally Vee forwarded an email from the Minuteman PAC. They are now going to threaten Republicans:
“…After Minuteman PAC stepped into the race on behalf of Hoffman to expose Scozzafava and Owens’ liberal records, Scozzafava was forced to abandon her campaign and her true colors were exposed to the entire country. . . And Minuteman PAC will continue aiming at key races where brave patriot candidates have enlisted to unseat or defeat anti-American candidates! That’s why we cannot sulk, we cannot rest, we must keep fighting. . .That’s why we’re already re-arming for the next round of primary elections in just a few months. We must begin preparing now…”
Lisa Fabrizio wrote this stupidity on Human Events:
“…While no baseball team worth its salt would be without switch-hitters, in politics, those who swing both ways are most-often a detriment; to those who have strong convictions anyway. And all too often our team is forced into playing split-squad games with the Elephants on one side and the RINOs on the other. Lindsey Graham had some great success as a rookie in the House Manager’s lineup so masterfully skippered by crafty vet Henry Hyde during the Clinton Impeachment tilt back in ’96. But since moving up to the Senate squad he has taken to batting lefty in the last few contests, making him and us look bad. There are also gals like Olympia Snowe whose most recent at-bat resulted in her being whiffed by daffy portsider Harry Reid, as she allowed the Senate Healthcare bill to come out of committee….
Republicans CANNOT win if the party is consigned to a group of purists who want ONLY their opinion heard and only their candidates selected to run for office. You might want to read the WPost piece on Dede Scozzafava.
“...In the summer, Scozzafava and her husband, Ron McDougall, a local labor leader, retreated to their summer house at the end of a dirt road on Sylvia Lake. The place has no TV reception — a good thing, she said, given all the attack ads against her funded by the Club for Growth, the anti-tax group backing Hoffman. Still, she wasn’t entirely isolated. She heard through friends that Palin insinuated she had been “anointed” by a “political machine” because county chairs handpicked her as the nominee. Beck denounced her as “ACORN-supported” and an “Obama-Lite Republican.” Former House majority leader Dick Armey’s group FreedomWorks mobilized against her. She said she heard conservative robo-calls in the district describing her as a “child killer,” a “lesbian lover” and a “homo.” “It was organized,” she said….”
Then start putting things into perspective.
“…Ultimately… The GOP is and must continue to be a movement of many perspectives, but these perspectives should share some similarity with one another. Nominating a candidate who is only with her party on gun rights in a reliably Republican district is not the way to foster continued support from traditional supporters of the party while also currying favor with those more independently minded. Success in 2010 and beyond is possible if past mistakes are not repeated….”
WANT TO WIN, SHUT BECK UP
We cannot win if LIBERTARIAN Glenn Beck is allowed to continue to call the shots for Elliott Schimel is one of the few reasonable voices getting through the conservative septic tank which is now American Thinker.
“…What will happen if conservative talk show hosts like Glenn Beck target moderate Republicans in 2010? The election in NY-23 sends a clear message that moderate Republicans are targets for conservative media. This means candidates in democratic districts don’t have a snowflake’s chance in hell to win. If a candidate leans too conservative, he will lose the district; drift towards the center, and risk being attacked by Beck.
If Republican leaders are serious about taking over the House, they need to make sure Beck doesn’t launch his own jihad on moderate candidates in left-leaning districts. It’s always difficult to unseat incumbent congressmen. Republican candidates can’t afford to spend time ducking shots from their own party….”
Did you know that the ACU considers Lindsey Graham a “Conservative Stand-out“?
Tuesday morning, The Pink Flamingo’s sister was in a “state”, being short handed at her business. Evidently in a city with double digit unemployment it is very difficult to get anyone “to work”. Her problem started The Pink Flamingo thinking about integrity.
Integrity is telling the truth about someone, even if you don’t like them. The most disgusting case The Pink Flamingo has been following are the lies of the far right as they attempt to destroy Lindsey. They don’t give a damn about the truth, only the lies.
The Pink Flamingo is tired of ranting and raving about third party losers, Losertarians, and the far right. It is a time for purity, a time for lies, and a time lie about anyone who disagrees with you – politically. Take the nasty “bad boys” of South Carolina at FTS, please. They call themselves “Unfair and unbalanced” – which is just about right, considering the way they like to use inuendo, half-truths, and will do just about anything to destroy those they dislike.
NOTE: If The Pink Flamingo were still living in SC and involved in SC GOP politics, I would be advocating immediate and swift retaliatory action against the Charleston County GOP. The reprehensible actions against Lindsey are one reason. Most importantly is their endorsement of the Tea Party Patriot?s who are in the process of calling the shots in Charleston County.
“…A local group of conservatives from the Tea Party Organization, 9.12 and members of the Charleston GOP met and interviewed candidates for local races. They have made the following recommendations for local offices which we support. These candidates have been identified as conservative candidates for these local non-partisan elections. We are asking your support of these individuals through volunteer efforts or cash donations. Please pick one and help them get elected…”
The Tea Party people have submitted a list of acceptable local Tea Party people who are “pure” enough to be endorsed by the county Executive Committee for local offices. In other words, the Charleston County GOP is being run by Glenn Beck’s 912 group of “patriots” and not by actual Republican values. This is reprehensible. The SCGOP should demand the resignation of all local officers involved in this fiasco. The problem is, right now, Republicans are quaking in their boots because Glenn Beck is now the most powerful man in the GOP.
How dare these people censure Lindsey. It is not about “patriotism” but the revenge of Ron Paul Bots and Glenn Beck’s little minions.
“…”When I began entering into the give and take …, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it. “Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything. “I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: ‘I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average.’ “If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it….”
Conservatives have a plan – to destroy the country.
They plan to pull more Doug Hoffman’s, sponsoring hand-picked Glenn Beck losers to split the vote and, as in NY-23, cause the Dems to pick up a long-term GOP seat.
Yea, that’s teaching the GOP a lesson.
What has happened in NY-23 could become the blue-print for the far far far far far irrational right to absolutely destroy the United States. Do these NON-REPUBLICAN jerks have the same plans for Florida? If they cut the vote, and go off pouting for third party losers, we are going o basically lose our country.
Just as in NY-23 CONSERVATIVES CANNOT WIN ELECTIONS!
The WSJ adds:
“…But that lesson will be for naught if conservatives conclude that their victory is reason to challenge any candidate who doesn’t agree with them on every issue. The truth is that some conservatives are as bloody-minded and intolerant of all dissent as the hard left is at the Daily Kos. A majority political party requires a far more diverse coalition than the audience for your average right-wing blogger or talk show host. Some of those voices prefer having Democrats in power because it drives up their own ratings….”
The first question one must ask is do they care about the country or their petty demands for purity. Those demands for purity are causing the far far far far far irrational right to do many things, including the same things they damn the left for doing. Let’s take stretching the truth. Malkin called Dede Scozzafava a “radical leftist“. Really, Michelle, get a grip on reality. Wanna talk “radical”? Go look in the mirror.
My grandfather Froehlich was a cattleman all of his life. He had the largest independent dairy in south Florida, milking several hundred cows on a 24 hour basis. Having spent all of his life around cows, he had a tendency to equate and philosophize about life via cows. He also had a rather cynical view of humanity, likening them to cows.
He would have a very dismal view of today’s “conservative base”, considering them nothing but cattle.
What happens when people who are NOT Republican acquire enough power to manipulate themselves into the position where they can call the shots?
Okay, they are smart. They are a heck of a lot smarter than “we are”. If we had half their cunning, duplicitous brains, we would know how to manipulate them and not the other way around.
Republicans who allow it are just downright pathetic. That’s what is going on in the GOP today. A minority group of conservatives have terrorized our more spineless Republican officials into thinking THEY ARE THE BASE, when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Why should people who have no relationship with a political party be the ones who call the shots?
They are abusive bullies who have come up with a formula to terrorize our elected officials. When good men like Lindsey stand up to them, well – you can see the results. They lie, denigrate, abuse, and manipulate.
Golly, they are good conservatives!
The far right now thinks Newt Gingrich is not good enough for them. They’ve also turned on Mike Huckabee, but then they never did like Huck. This whole mess is because the NY GOP is absolutely incompetent.
“…”There will be no climate change bill with my vote unless you have offshore oil drilling,” Graham told Fox News on Thursday. “I won’t vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow a dramatic increase in nuclear power. I’m not going to vote for any climate change bill that doesn’t allow us to use our coal deposits.”…”
Friday on his show, Rush Limbaugh did not tell the truth. He was complaining about the fact that no Republicans were standing up to the Obama Administration and trying to be leaders. He lied. Lamar Alexander is standing up to them. So is John McCain. Mitch McConnell is fighting. Charles Grassley, once denounced as “liberal” is sounding like a regular Ronald Reagan as he fights the liberals.
We have some great Republicans trying to fight Obama. Unfortunately the far right talking heads would rather lie about their efforts than to praise them. There’s a good reason. I think the far right wants to prevent the GOP from winning in 2010.
It’s obvious they have a “hate on” for many of our leaders, Lindsey especially.
There’s a good reason for this.
Lindsey is emerging as THE leader of the Republicans in the Senate. If Lindsey continues on his current path, he is going to be the most powerful Republican in Washington, the perfect replacement for George W. Bush – a true patriot and a man of honor.
To quote C3PO “We’re doomed.”
You know the far right has gone too far when they turn on Newt Gingrich.
On O’Reilly Thursday night, Laura Ingraham did nothing but complain about Obama and his administration and Dems in general. She talked about how they set out to destroy the reputation of those they oppose. They lie, they denigrate, and will do just about anything to ruin a person’s reputation. She was quite upset about it. In her next breath she started complaining about the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and RINOS who were out to doom the conservative movement. She did nothing but denigrate and lie about Lindsey.
In other words, it is okay to destroy a “RINO” if you are a pure conservative who is trying to keep the party pure. Protecting the country doesn’t matter as much as purity and ideology. If this is what conservatives are up to, then they don’t give a damn about the fate of the country, only their personal agenda.
I gather Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, etc. are only interested in their “pure” agenda, and aren’t interested in recapturing the House and Senate from the Dems. If they did, they would use some rational thinking and realize a majority is more important than purity. Only FOOLS demand purity.
UPDATED: The Politico has an excellent piece about the problems the GOP is facing. If something isn’t done to either …Read the Rest
“America is not only worth fighting for, it’s worth getting criticized for.”
Would someone please tell me the difference between liberals spreading lies about Rush Limbaugh and conservatives spreading lies about Lindsey Graham? Oh, Graham isn’t pure so he deserves it, right? As long as the person is someone the Tea Party People dislike (and they take their marching orders from Ron Paul Bots) then they can lie all they want. But – don’t tell anyone they are lying. They are 100% pure conservative. Anyone who isn’t deserves to be lied about and destroyed – just the way the liberals are trying to destroy Rush.
It’s a Tea Party Problem.
The Pink Flamingo is using the current far far far far far right, Ron Paul Bot, Tea Party attack on Lindsey as an example of the problems we are facing within the GOP.
We have a problem within conservative circles. Things are getting nasty. We’re starting to be barraged by a group of far right writers, bloggers, and columnists who don’t give a durn about the truth, and would rather lie to promote their anti-Republican agenda. They’ve reached the point where honor and principle have nothing to do with their agenda, only their version of “truth” which has nothing to do with actual provable fact.
American Thinker has joined the ranks of the idiot right with the publication of a reprehensible hit piece on Lindsey by far right nut-job Nancy Morgan. She talks a good game, but anyone who writes for World Nut Daily can’t be very reliable, can they?
Morgan writes the following:
“…Lindsey Graham was elected to serve as United States Senator in 2002. He was easily re-elected in 2008, largely due to the support of conservatives. Conservatives like founder and past president of the low country’s South Strand Republicans, John Bonsignor. John and his wife campaigned hard for Graham, based on their belief that Graham would govern as a conservative. Meaning, lower taxes and less government.
“Graham is disappointing,” states Bonsignor, “He campaigned as a conservative but his record is moderate left.” When asked if he would vote for Graham now, Bonsignor stated emphatically, “No,” citing Lindsey’s support for Sotomayor, his support for TARP funds, and the final straw, his support for cap and trade…”
Since when was a 90% ACU rating “moderate left”.
Maybe conservatives need to start telling the truth and quit lying about things….?
The problem with conservatives like Morgan is the fact that they cannot tell actual facts that are proven to be correct. There is a difference between “truth” and “fact”. Truth is in the eye of the beholder. Fact can be proven correct or incorrect. Morgan is spreading facts that have no bases in fact. She is telling lies about Lindsey. The worst of it is the fact that Flopping Aces, one of the finest conservative sites, has picked up her pack of lies and is in the process of spreading them. (Morgan is one of those idiots who voted for Ross Perot, thereby costing GHWB a 2nd term – good conservative – idiot).
Her lies are being picked up and spread. Because she is saying something ugly about Lindsey, no one is bothering to fact check her.
Very few Republicans seem to have the courage to go after Ron Paul, Ron Paul Bots, the far far far far far Right, Libertarians (not Libertarian Republicans), and other nut case third party idiots who are dragging down the GOP. Lindsey is one of those few. Naturally Ron Paul is not amused.
Fortunately people such as Ron Paul and his Bots are being recognized as the “fringe“. The problem is they make so much noise and so dominate the blogsphere and radiosphere that NORMAL Republicans don’t have a prayer of being heard. Fortunately, along with Lindsey, we have one other great Republican voice of reason – Michael Medved.
The fascinating, and dirty little secret about all of this is you will rarely find a NORMAL Republican who criticizes Lindsey. The only ones who truly dislike him, other than Rush, are NOT Republicans. They hate Lindsey with a passion, that is at a boiling point because Lindsey tells the truth when it comes to Ron Paul and their outlandish worship of a man who truly deserves to be put out to pasture before he destroys the country.
“…It is this lack of integrity and principle on display right now. Graham is the worst of the lot. Integrity, honesty, and principle are the ideological fuel to grow the Republican Party. That is the fuel of Ron Paul. Utilizing the Lindsey Graham infested fuel has already been attempted and failed….”
Michael Tomasky from the UK Guardian seems to think those who consider Lindsey a “traitor” are basically unhinged. I agree. The real problem is the Ron Paul Bots, the Glenn Beck idiots, and the far far far far far right is being called down for their outlandish, stupid, and unreasonable behavior that could end up costing us dearly in 2010. These people aren’t interested in their country. They are followers, interested in worshipping and promoting someone who salves their pathetic little egos. They are fringe cult-like conspiracy nuts. They need to be marginalized before they do further damage to the country.
