For years The Pink Flamingo has been telling you how vile Peter Brimelow and his Vdare associates are.
I am an unabashed fan of John McCain. I think he is one of our greatest living Americans. For horrid, white supremacists like Peter Brimelow and his slime to denigrate a great man like McCain is deplorable. Then again, they are the slime below the pond scum.
David Frum wrote:
“...Allegations are not new that he campaigned against investigations and disclosures that the U.S. abandoned missing prisoners at the end of the Vietnam War, but the reports had no traction and were largely ignored.That they have arisen again, seems largely because McCain is in a serious fight to retain the Arizona Senate Seat that he’s held since 1986. The threat is not from a Democratic contender, but from the right — ultra-conservative J.D. Hayworth whom admirers describe as a “patriotic immigration reformer,” and critics call “one of the ten dumbest members of Congress.”
They are at it again.
The ugly specter of immigration reform is rearing it’s nasty head.
I have several objections to hard-core immigration reform.
- It ignores the actual problem along the border of drug running
- It will doom the GOP to a minority party
- It is short sighted
- It is potentially dangerous to our national interests

Another one bites the dust. The Pink Flamingo is frequently castigated by the minions of the extreme far right for using that tacky word “Nazi”. Allegedly, in the world of the web, who ever uses the “Nazi” word first loses. The far right has a tendency to thumb their nose at this sort of thing and just say that the SPLC and Morris Dees are liberals and must not be believed. Well – want some dirt on R. S. McCain, Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and Neo-Nazi Bill White that doesn’t come from the SPLC?
The real problem with this is that there really are Neo-Nazis in this country. The other very real problem is that a few of them have some very curious ties to some very “important” far right personalities. If you star shaking the wood pile all the usual suspects star dropping out like ticks on a North Carolina Mountain coon dog.
...A federal jury has found William A. White guilty on four counts and not guilty on three counts.
South Carolina is the most Republican state in the country. Lindsey Graham is the Senior United States Senator.
Lindsey is a Republican.
He is being attacked by a group called the American Energy Alliance, which employs attractive and bright former GOP staffers to make it look like the whole attack is the Republican Party turning on Lindsey Graham.
South Carolina is very important to the GOP.
It is a bell-weather state.
What happens in SC in the GOP will eventually happen throughout the country.
What happens when there is a harmonic convergence of Tea Party “patriots?”, Stormfront, the CofCC, American Renaissance, Losertarian Blogs, The Charleston County GOP, “Big Oil”, Ron Paul, Ron Paul Bots, and the brain dead far right, all determined to destroy a good man? The Far Right falls for the lies, hook, line, sinker, and canard, spewing them out gleefully, never bothering to fact check, only vomiting up hate and lies.
SC’s strange, “losertarian” blog, FTS, is joyfully announcing how Lindsey is being trounced in alleged polls, never bothering to link to them. Not to worry, the same thing happened in 2008 when the Greenville County GOP held a straw poll and all the little anti-Lindsey racists showed up to vote. In 2007, the CofCC was so sure they could stir up enough hate, that they held their national conference in Greenville. They partied and did the conference thing with their “sister” organization, Stormfront.
Speakers included Jared Taylor, etc.
“…In April 2007, Taylor delivered a lecture entitled, “Multiculturalism and Racial Diversity: Strength or Weakness?” at Clemson University in South Carolina. A student group, the Clemson Conservatives, had invited him and he spoke to a group of students, faculty, and members of the public. During the lecture, Taylor implied that international hostility directed at the United States is due to the country’s current racial diversity. He also said, “It is a mistake to assume it is wrong to prefer the company of people similar to oneself… It is universal, and I think there’s every reason to believe there are innate biological reasons… In [the] United States, this kind of preference… is recognized and encouraged and institutionalized so long as the people who are expressing this preference are not white.”…”
A LITTLE HEALTHY PARANOIARead More
Dick Armey is now jealous of Sarah Palin. The Pink Flamingo doesn’t mind admitting she is extremely disappointed with Sarah Palin’s strange attraction to a group of far right losers who are going to end up truly damaging any political chances she has with “regular” Republicans. They see her as this great anti-GOP icon, and this disturbs me. Unless the GOP were to do something absolutely insane and nominate someone like Ron Paul, I can never see myself ever voting for anyone but a Republican.
Unfortunately, the whole Tea Party “patriot” movement is all about destroying the GOP. It is about making Nancy Pelosi Speaker for Life!
It started out as a nice little thing to do – protest Barack Obama. A few non-political types who knew nothing about the political process, and probably never voted before in their lives made the mistake of listening to Glenn Beck. They formed their little Tea Parties.
Those little tea parties were then co-opted by FOX News, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and every conservative talking head in the country. No one wanted to appear to disapprove of their precious little populist anticts. It was the sort of thing that caused Ross Perot to hand the Presidency to Bill Clinton in 1994, but who’s paying attention to the history of third party malcontents?Read More
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….”
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.Read More
“You’ve called down the thunder, and now you’ve got it.”
Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp in Tombstone
Pink Flamingo readers know I’ve taken the side of Charles Johnson at LGF when it comes to Robert Stacy McCain and his little friends. I think Johnson is over the top on a few things, but he is 100% right on when it comes to exposing the vile, corrupt, racist, filth that is festering within certain ranks of the conservative far right.
Now AJ Strata, one of the great voices of reason has joined the war, for indeed it is a war.
“…But when I look at what The Other McCain has written over time, I find myself repulsed well beyond my moral limits of tolerance. Anyone who thinks “race” verses “human beings” is off track. Way off track. And anyone who defends slavery is plain insane. LGF noted a detailed analysis of McCain blathering which has pushed me to the point I must make a public stand. Some disturbing excerpts of the thinking of a sick mind:…”
It is a war for the conservative soul and a war to preserve the GOP and wrestle it back from the minions of the likes of Robert Stacy McCain, Pat Buchanan, Peter Brimelow, Michelle Malkin, Bay Buchanan, and Glenn Beck. I think Lindsey fired the opening shots a couple of weeks ago, and now the conservative world is taking sides.
Reasonable conservatives know the difference from right and wrong. They know the difference between an agenda of hate, actual criticism, honesty. The problem is the fact that personal expediency sometimes gets in the way of doing what is right.
Instead of standing up for what is right, we are dealing with thousands of lemming conservatives who evidently take their marching orders from people who are connected to some very nasty agendas. Until we manage to limit the influence of these people, being a “conservative” is akin to nothing more than a bad joke.
If these people and their agendas are not marginalized, once again, we are going to lose entire groups of voters, the way we did Hispanics.
I’m beginning to wonder if these people are “conservative” at all, but rather working hand in hand with liberals to destroy the country. Sure looks that way.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of it. When I see someone who is trying to manipulate and promote an agenda that is “hate” I call them on it. No one cares, but if we can reach a person every once in awhile, maybe we can defeat these yahoos.
Michelle Malkin writes for Vdare.
Vdare features regular articles by the following:
Jarrod Taylor of American Renaissance
Pat Buchanan, who also is featured in World Nut Daily
Vdare is the brainchild of Peter Brimelow
Peter Brimelow’s identical twin brother, John, was once the leader of the National Socialist Party.
Malkin is a staunch associate of Robert Stacy McCain.
RSM also writes for Vdare.
He is a friend of William White one of the leaders of the National Socialist movement.
RSM worked with Francis Coombs.
Both Coombs and his wife are also close friends with William White.
Both Combs and RSM were leading figures at the WTimes.
They are all puppets of John Tanton, who is one of the most staunch pro-abortion and pro-eugenics advocates in the world.
There is one thing this bunch has in common. They all claim to worship Reagan, who would turn his back on them if he were still here. They detest John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and George W. Bush. They do their level best to denigrate and destroy the GOP.Read More
This is a lesson in the ways the far, far, far right tries to destroy a very good man. It is NOT about normal, decent conservatives, libertarians, and independents. It is about a handful of vile, nasty extreme right conservatives who have absolutely nothing to do with the Republican Party, but spent their venial time doing everything possibly to destroy, defame, and denigrate good, decent men and women who do not agree with them.
The real problem here is the fact that there is no differentiation between “conservative” and “Republican”. We automatically know that when we are dealing with “liberals”, a good 95% of them are Democrats. But – when we are dealing with the term “conservative” that is not the case at all. Most are either Republican or usually vote Republican, but there is a very vocal minority who basically control all things conservative online. They number in their midst some very powerful blogging voices who are regular commentators on FOX. A decent Republican doesn’t stand a chance – until Republicans get smart and start calling down the thunder.
Evidently the mantra of “drill baby drill” is not longer acceptable to the Far Right.
What’s wrong with building new nuclear power plants?
I thought energy independence was a good thing.
Evidently it is, but only if it is proposed by someone other than Lindsey Graham.
The irony here is that what he and John Kerry are proposing isn’t far from what Sarah Palin is advocating.
The real problem – Lindsey is not “pure” enough for the far right. The worst part of this – if Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Mike Pence, Jim DeMint or even Ron Paul had proposed this the far right would be heralding the breakthrough as a way to defeat the far left.
First, The Pink Flamingo wants to go on record that we are dealing with climate change. I did NOT say global warming. I fear we are going to be hitting a period of global cooling due to the sun. If we experience one big volcanic eruption like Pinatubo, we’re looking at some serious global cooling – major cooling – another minor ice age. There are several things in this life that are consistent. First, always count on Lindsey to throw a curve and step into a fast-ball at the same time. Second, Michelle Malkin is ALWAYS going to lie about his actions. Then trust all the usual little far right flunkies to pick up on her irrational hatred of him.
I can only imagine what Rush is going to do tomorrow.
They say the devil is in the details. If the usual suspects would bother reading the details, they might discover that Lindsey is NOT selling out their precious and somewhat irrational conservative cause that is increasingly costing us votes. But then no one ever accused Michelle Malkin of being a Republican. Sometimes it just gets plain annoying having to constantly support and defend a man who believes in standing up for something he thinks is right, defending him from the people who don’t possess a small percentage of his honesty and honor. Now though, Lindsey Graham has done the unpardonable….he penned an Op-Ed with John Kerry.
Who knew being a statesman was such a bad thing.
Then again, the far right knows very little about history, or they would know how the Senate actually works.
From The Hill:
“…The two senators wrote that they both agree on five basic premises: (1) climate change is real; (2) the U.S. should take an all-inclusive approach to renewable energy; (3) climate change represents an opportunity to ween the country off foreign oil; (4), climate legislation can’t and won’t cost American jobs; and (5) the bill will protect small businesses….”
Durn – I thought Malkin was conservative.
Obviously she and the usual suspects are once again responding with their usual knee-jerk reactionary far right, anti-GOP hate. Maybe a few of the usual suspects need to read what is really going on here.
I will admit, I was annoyed with Lindsey when I heard he was up to this. I trust him, so I know he is not going to betray our country. I was more annoyed because I’m going to be out there defending what he is going against the usual conservative lies.
Funny thing about lies, you tell them long enough and they are taken as truth. The irony of the fact is the very people who are demanding purity, a return to traditional values, and are constantly damning Obama for his lack of truthfulness. Factual accuracy is a funny thing. It works both ways.
I will be willing to wage my currently very stinky toy poodle that the following usual sources are NOT Republican.
Want to know the real difference between liberals and conservatives?
Liberals usually circle their wagons and stand up for one another.
Conservatives have absolutely no problem eating their own, then going after liberals. The problem is you can’t have it both ways and be intellectually honest, but then intellectual honest is not something the far far right deals with on a regular basis.Read More
Glenn Beck is not a conservative. He claims to be a “libertarian”, and is increasingly fawning over Ron Paul. Perhaps one of the best things to happen to the GOP is the beginning of a “blog war” between Little Green Footballs and Robert Stacy McCain. I don’t know exactly what Johnson’s politics are, other than the fact that he is going after specific “hate” sources the way I try to go after anti-immigration sources. I know how I’ve been treated and The Pink Flamingo is not important in the vast galaxy. LGF is.
Glenn Beck is starting a war he may not be able to complete. The “conservative” blogsphere is starting to fall apart, over Beck, Charles Johnson at LGF, and the apologists who constantly side with Robert Stacy McCain. Earlier today at LGF, Johnson said exactly what I’ve been saying, only The Pink Flamingo is not very important and Johnson is. I’m not worth attacking.
“…Don’t take my word for it that American Renaissance is an outright white supremacist hate site; here’s a Google cache link. Go ahead, investigate it for yourself and see the kinds of people with whom Robert Stacy McCain associates.
This is an ongoing disgrace, from which the right wing blogosphere may never recover.
I’ve made my position very clear — I won’t stand with racists and white supremacists, not now, not in the past, not ever. There’s a very bad craziness on the right, and I won’t have any part of it….”
