Once upon a time the GOP soundly renounced David Duke. Too bad those days are over.
Unfortunately The Pink Flamingo can no longer support either Sarah Palin or Jim DeMint. I will support them when they renounce Rand Paul and demand he return the money he took from white supremacists. I do not understand how Sarah Palin, who claims to be so very pro-Israel and supports our military can endorse someone like Rand Paul who is, according to Pat Buchanan, one of them. He does not support Israel. He is against the “military industrial complex”, does not believe in fighting the war on terror, and wants to bring our troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq – immediately.Read More
Did you know that only Hispanics are dangerous racists? That is the lie currently being promoted by the far right. They absolutely refuse to acknowledge the racist mote in their own eye. Take Patrick J. Buchanan, please. (NOTE: The Pink Flamingo does not like linking to World Nut Daily. I will list the URL and you go find it.
“…Indeed, of the last seven justices nominated by Democrats JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, one was black, Marshall; one was Puerto Rican, Sonia Sotomayor. The other five were Jews: Arthur Goldberg, Abe Fortas, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.

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.
‘‘It is unlikely that the Reagan era
will prove to be the historic change
in the direction of America that we have sought.”
Edwin J. Feulner Jr., president of the Heritage Foundation,1985.
According to Rasmussen:
“…while Republican voters overwhelmingly consider themselves conservative, only 56% of conservative voters consider themselves to be Republicans. In other words, nearly half of all conservatives nationwide reject the Republican Party label. This means that Republicans looking to broaden their party’s outreach cannot ignore the need to attract a large number of conservative voters along with some political moderates. Of all the non-Republicans in the nation, 31% consider themselves at least somewhat conservative while 37% say they’re political moderates….”
When I hear the word “purge” it makes me want to throw up. That’s just about the way I feel now that Michelle Malkin, Erick Erickson, and their little bunch of Tea Partiers all have decided to purge the GOP of the impure. In fact, Erickson is calling for a “Purge” of the GOP establishment.
Rush Limbaugh is calling for a purge.
“…“Moderates by definition have no principles,” Limbaugh huffed on his radio show yesterday. He predicted that “RINOs” – a putdown acronym of “Republicans In Name Only” – “may become extinct.”
Unfortunately, while I think Erickson is extreme, he redeems himself (sort of):
“…I intend to work within the GOP. Already Democrats are salivating at the thought of a third party conservative movement and are intent on fostering it to hurt the GOP. I will not cooperate with a third party movement. As I have said repeatedly, Doug Hoffman is the exception that proves the rule. America is a two party nation and instead of packing up and fleeing the GOP, we should launch a coup and take it back. Consider NY-23 the first salvo in that coup, with the Florida Senate race right behind it…”
Conservatives constantly complain about the Dems, how unfair they are. That they are bullies. They lie, they cheat, manipulate, are vicious, and will do anything to get their way. I have news for them – maybe they should try looking in a mirror!
There is absolutely no difference in the behavior and tactics of the far right than the far left. Only the ideologies are different. The cruel hate is the same.
What do the following have in common?
George H. W. Bush
George W. Bush
All six are good, decent patriotic men of honor, followers of Christ, and betrayed by the far right because they were not good enough – not pure enough. And so – the list of those to be purged includes John McCain and Lindsey. The worst part of it, they are far better, far more decent, far more honorable and patriotic individuals than those dim-wit closed-minded idiots who are more interested in purity than country. Ronald Reagan detested those kind of people – the purists. They were the ones who hated Reagan.Read More
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
