This is a Good Piece

It's at Mediaite, but the writer is solid. He notes what many of us have been noting -- the liberal media's sudden disinterest in political motivations when a shooter's a lefty -- but it's well-done.

The liberal black nut in LA. I asked this question earlier. See this link.

It shows him in a camo shirt with captain's bars on the collar, or LT bars if he was in the Navy.

How did this fucker become an officer? His rank is never mentioned in any stores. ROTC? OCS? Affirmative Action?

Makes no sense to me for him to be an officer. WTF is with that?

Won't somebody, help me?

It is my understanding that he left active service for the Navy as a LT and remained in the Navy Reserve. I heard this via radio so I have no link to provide.

11 I asked on a previous threat if anyone reads the Canada Free Press and whether in the opinion of the Horde it is a legit news source or more aligned with the Alex Jones Prison Planet poppycock. reason I ask is because they had another article about some dude who claims to be an DHS insider and who talks at length about Obama supporters/ some org keeping tabs on bloggers, usernames etc on conservative websites. The thrust of the article is in the vein of this thread.

12 How can any group of people that obsess so much about how they look so completely miss what appears in their mirror?


Maybe I missed a metaphor somewhere. Maybe that whole "vampires can't see reflections" thing was related to the ability to experience shame when one has behaved shamefully.



On a similar note, has anyone else noticed how easy it is becoming to sum everything up with: "everything a leftist might blame you for is either what they are doing right now or what they will do soon." ??

19 "about some dude who claims to be an DHS insider and who talks at length about Obama supporters/ some org keeping tabs on bloggers, usernames etc on conservative websites."

Given the shear volume of concern trolling that occurred in 2008 and the fact it was fairly rare before that, I'd be stunned if they aren't keeping track. In fact, it'd probably be malpractice if they didn't--I'd expect a competent Republican campaign to have a good idea about what was going on Democratic blogs. The unethical part is the Moby shit and spreading smears (both on the right and other sites) a la the Palin attacks.

You haven't read Dr. King's actual work (such work as he didn't plagiarise, anyway). "Where Do We Go From Here" is a must-read for idealistic conservatives such as yourself. I like the shout-outs to "democratic socialism" best, personally.

26 MFM delenda est.

By now it is obvious why.

Dig up dirt on reporters and staff, humiliate them.

Disrupt their operations (lawfully and legitimately - we have plenty of reasons to protest by now!).

Spread the word however you can - blogs, news radio, potentially receptive friends and neighbors - about how untrustworthy these hypocritical prostitutes are.

The current generation of journalists are *lost* to an almost unbelievable extent, all we can do is work on the next generation. Tell them the truth - we're not mad about the beliefs, we're mad about the lies and concerted campaigns against the truth. If I *knew* an honest liberal I would use them as an example, but I think they've pretty much all discredited themselves by now.

Just FYI you're looking for "sheer." "Shear" is to take an animal's hair (i.e. sheep) or the force or result of the force splitting something off from a whole, like stone.

"Sheer" is unmitigated, or sudden, or sometimes very fine cloth.

29 Ace --

Note that Mediaite is a very interestingly-run operation, inasmuch as they have both explicitly liberal AND conservative media analysts and news-scourers over there. Note the byline on this one: it's by Noah Rothman. Now go check his other work on the site. You'll find it reliably skews towards a conservative media critique. On the other end, you have brainless morons like Tommy Christopher, who you're well aware of.

Rothman isn't the only one who isn't a lib shill over there, either. Mediaite is a nice change of pace from the typical monochromatic one-sided voice of most websites precisely because Dan Abrams (its founder, who was pushed out of MSNBC by Keith Olbermann for being insufficiently partisan lefty) designed it to appeal to both teams.

Navy Lieutenant in the Reserves until last week, apparently. Most likely in the Intel field, as he name-checks the Navy and Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center (NMITC) in the Dam Neck Naval installation in Virginia Beach. FWIW, I worked at Dam Neck (not at NMITC, up the road at FCTCLANT) for about 4 years.

46 It is right-wing racist ideology, as spread by the Tea Party and that horrible slutty Sarah Palin, that espouses violence. If correct progressive thinkers happen to develop mental disorders and resort to violence, this is merely an unfortunate coincidence. Violence is inherent in the Right, not in the Correct.


Not that violence against the Right is completely unjustified. But Barack Obama is not yet ready with his plan to re-educate the likes of you and that terrible Mr. O'Spades person- him with his Ewok costume and his filthy pornography.
