SE Cupp: Democrats Have Double Standards On Candidates

 

 

 

 

 

” Yesterday, CNN “Crossfire” host SE Cupp called attention to ways in which Democrats apply double standards to the brains and beauty of candidates running for high office. Cupp noted that liberals were upset with Republicans for being too hard on Hillary Clinton, who is expected to run for President in 2016, because she was a woman.

“ So, Democrats can call Chris Christie fat, George Bush Hitler, Sarah Palin Caribou Barbie, Michele Bachmann crazy, Tim Scott a dummy and Nikki Haley the Seik Jesus – but calling Hillary ruthless?” Cupp remarked sarcastically. “Now, that’s a step too far.” “

In Tweak To US, Russia Would ‘Consider’ Asylum For Snowden

 

 

” Russia might be willing to grant asylum to Edward Snowden, the whistleblower who exposed the extent of the National Security Agency’s electronic surveillance, if he asked for it, Kremlinspokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

“If such a request is made, it will be considered. We’ll act according to facts,” the Moscow daily Kommersant quoted Mr. Peskov as saying.

That single, utterly noncommittal phrase triggered a storm of commentary on Russian social media, with some exulting in the historic turn-of-fortunes situation that nowadays makes Russia look like a potential haven for US dissidents.”

 

 

     Wow … just wow . Imagine the irony of Americans fleeing to Russia to escape government totalitarianism . Obama world really is Bizarro World .

 Of course fleeing to Russia would probably not be such a good choice for a “freedom lover” . Escaping one Statist government by taking residence in another is not much of a step forward .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conservative Bloggers Say Facebook Selectively Enforcing Non-Existent Rules

 

 

” On Sunday, two conservative bloggers accused Facebook of selectively enforcing rules that are either non-existent or not made known to the millions of people who use the site. Diane Sori, a Florida-based conservative who blogs at the Patriot Factor, and Craig Andresen of the National Patriot basically argued that Facebook is arbitrarily punishing conservatives using non-existent policies in order to silence criticism of Barack Obama.

The accusations stem from an incident involving the Facebook page “Barracuda Brigade for Our American Girl! 2012,” a community fan page supporting Sarah Palin.”

 

 

    Hell , this is no surprise … even some WordPress blogging tools exhibit a leftward slant . Zemanta and the recommended tags algorithms often seem prejudicial towards the statist mindset if you ask me .

 

 

 

 

 

Vaginas And Penises And Feminist Hysteria

A clever and competent reader sent me this link to a column from the Harvard newspaper (The Crimson) from February of 2003.  Some of you may actually remember the story when it was new news, but I’d never heard about it before, and I found it SO FASCINATING, given the recentVagina Extravaganzathon held at the University of Cincinnati last week.  The quotes in this article serve as incontrovertible evidence that liberal feminists are absolutely the most clueless, hypocritical, perpetually-offended bunch of hosebeast harpies ever.

Apparently, some members of the Harvard crew team thought it’d be hilarious fun to build a gigantic, 9-foot penis out of snow.  BEHOLD :

Fined $535 For Nursing A Woodpecker Back To Health

 

 

” This is, declared NYU professor Jay Rosen, “the dumbest media story of 2012.” Why? Because, as CNN’s Howard Kurtz breezily put it, everybody knows David Gregory wasn’t “planning to commit any crimes.”

 

Free As A Bird After Breaking DC “High Capacity” Magazine Ban

So what? Neither are the overwhelming majority of his fellow high-capacity-magazine-owning Americans. Yet they’re expected to know, as they drive around visiting friends and family over Christmas, the various and contradictory gun laws in different jurisdictions. “Ignorantia juris non excusat” is one of the oldest concepts in civilized society: ignorance of the law is no excuse. Back when there was a modest and proportionate number of laws, that was just about do-able. But in today’s America there are laws against everything, and any one of us at any time is unknowingly in breach of dozens of them. And, in this case, NBC was informed by the D.C. police that it would be illegal to show the thing on TV, and they went ahead and did it, anyway: You’ll never take me alive, copper! You’ll have to pry my high-capacity magazine from my cold dead fingers! When the D.C. SWAT team, the FBI and the ATF take out NBC News, and the whole building goes up in one almighty fireball, David Gregory will be the crazed loon up on the roof like Jimmy Cagney in “White Heat”: “Made it, Ma! Top of the world!” At last, some actual must-see TV on that lousy network.

 

$50,000 Bail For Wearing A $20 Punker’s Ammo Belt

To Howard Kurtz & Co, it’s “obvious” that Gregory didn’t intend to commit a crime. But, in a land choked with laws, “obviousness” is one of the first casualties – and “obviously” innocent citizens have their “obviously” well-intentioned actions criminalized every minute of the day. Not far away from David Gregory, across the Virginia border, 11-year-old Schylar Capo made the mistake of rescuing a woodpecker from the jaws of a cat and nursing him back to health for a couple of days. For her pains, a federal Fish & Wildlife gauleiter accompanied by state troopers descended on her house, charged her with illegal transportation of a protected species, issued her a $535 fine, and made her cry. Why is it so “obvious” that David Gregory deserves to be treated more leniently than a sixth-grader? Because he’s got a TV show, and she hasn’t?

 

The Offending Fashion-Ware

Three days after scofflaw Gregory committed his crime, a bail hearing was held in Massachusetts for Andrew Despres, 20, who’s charged with trespassing and possession of ammunition without a firearms license. Mr. Despres was recently expelled from Fitchburg State University and was returning to campus to pick up his stuff. Hence the trespassing charge. At the time of his arrest, he was wearing a “military-style ammunition belt.” Hence, the firearms charge.

His mom told WBZ that her son purchased the belt for $20 from a punk website and had worn it to class every day for two years as a “fashion statement.” He had no gun with which to fire the bullets. Nevertheless, Fitchburg Police proudly displayed the $20 punk-website ammo belt as if they’d just raided the Fitchburg mafia’s armory, and an obliging judge ordered Mr. Despres held on $50,000 bail. Why should there be one law for “Meet The Press” and another for “Meet Andrew Despres”? Because David Gregory throws better cocktail parties? ”
