FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you’re the expert, but that’s what I would do…I’d wait until you see who showed up because that indicates we already know something…

[Laughter] FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.
Ed Wishes You a Spooky Halloween
Big Journalism has this story about Es Schultz comment that there is no violence from the Left towards Republicans. I beg to differ. Before the video is Big Journalism’s post on it… after the video is my compilation – enjoy:
There “isn’t any violence” on the left because the left ignores the violence that happens to the right.
The left ignored the assault on the Rand Paul supporter at the same event that Schultz is referencing.
The left ignored Bill Rice having his finger bitten off at a town hall meeting by an MoveOn.org thug.
The left ignored when a Republican staffer and Iraqi War veteran had hot coffee poured down his back by Democratic gubernatorial candidate supporter (who later returned to the man to make an obscene gesture).
The left ignored the man being punched in the face with a camera by leftist thugs at a gubernatorial debate.
The left ignored the Martha Coakley thugs who roughed up a reporter.
A friend said this after the MoveOn.org gal was stomped:
WTF. Pretty disgusting. Hopefully, reasonable conservatives are starting to see why you don’t want tea baggers speaking for and leading them.
To which I responded:
Obviously a horrible act and all radio and TV talking heads on the conservative side have said they hope this person is prosecuted. However, if this is leading a movement that wants smaller government (less power), where do the following ca…ses lead [led?] a party that wants more government control over peoples lives?
—GOP official Allee Bautsch ahd her boyfriend Joe Brown attended a Republican dinner at Brennan’s restaurant in New Orleans. When they left this event they were followed from the restaurant by a group of five white men who hurled insults at them calling Allee a “little blond bitch” and calling Joe a “f**king f*ggot.” They brutally beat and stomped on the young Republican couple just blocks from the restaurant. (http://biggovernment.com/jhoft/2010/04/18/allee-bautschs-mother-speaks-out-says-daughter-was-attacked-by-leftist-political-protesters/)
—How bout a black man, Kenneth Gladney, being beaten by SEIU union thugs at a democratic health-care meeting (http://religiopoliticaltalk.com/2010/09/unions-violence-and-dubious-connections/)
—Or a man being roughed up at a Democratic town hall? Rep. Kathy Castor’s union thugs beat up a guy (in the green shirt – evidence 3:21) and shut the doors to prevent the opposing opinions from being heard (http://religiopoliticaltalk.blogspot.com/2009/08/taste-of-their-own-medicine-pun.html)
—This video shows a union thug treating a person who crossed the line VERY NICELY… why didn’t this get attention? Video of a man that threatened me at a gas station during the local telephone company’s labour dispute. This man (6’4″, ex-football linebacker) later took a run at our van with his semi-truck (not captured in video). (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnVewHEQP00)
—This peaceful Tea Partier was punched and then threatened and then his wife was pushed and bullied (first video: http://religiopoliticaltalk.com/2010/06/the-peaceful-left-just-like-the-peaceful-flotilla/)
—A Democratic Congressman attacks two students violently (http://religiopoliticaltalk.com/2010/06/cnns-howard-kurtz-on-the-pathetic-in-your-face-leftist-obama-media-refusing-to-cover-bob-etheridge-attack-on-students/)
After some obfuscation on the matter, I drove my point home:
My point is if one act is “leading” one movement, where is this leading the other? I am using your logic… the Tea Party is not headed anywhere you are thinking, nor were there any “leaders” there telling this redneck to stomp on anyone. But please tell me where you think this is “leading” a small government group.
If you are not familiar with this story, the Huffington Post has a good piece on it that will bring you up to date. One short blurb from this story sums up the large support for O’Donnell on this:
Even Meghan McCain, who is no fan of Christiine O’Donnell, says that this type of bringing out of personal life of a single woman is in bad taste and is meant to keep women from politics:
Meghan McCain may not think Delaware’s Tea Party candidate is fit for office but she’s outraged by Gawker’s slanderous post on her—and says it will harm other women in politics.
Thursday the gossip blog Gawker paid and published an anonymous Philadelphia man’s “one-night stand encounter” with the now infamous senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell. If you haven’t read this posting on Gawker, there is no need. It is the pathetic rantings of an opportunistic, infantile frat boy, who allegedly spent a PG-13 night with Christine O’Donnell and decided to sell his soul to Gawker “for a low four figures.”
It is all unbelievably disgusting and I am not sure who is worse, the anonymous man who wrote it or Gawker for buying and publishing it. Although sex scandals and morally corrupt opportunists waiting to capitalize on another person’s fame are so common it is a cliché, I think what is so disheartening about this specific case is that there are many reasons to dislike Christine O’Donnell. I have written before about what makes her an unqualified candidate for Senate, but now, thank you Gawker, you have made her a victim of our disgusting political environment facing any woman brave enough to put up with this kind of slander and run for office.
What we are creating is a world in which no woman will ever be courageous enough to want to run for office.
However, this story may have some legal ramifications. A story found on Libertarian Republican’s (LR) site about Federal Government employees possibly campaigning against Republican candidates. In LR’s post we find Eric Dondero saying,
The Smokin’ Gun blog has uncovered the identity of the author of the vicious attack piece on Gawker, “I had a one-night stand with Christine O’Donnell.” The piece talks of a wild Halloween party that O’Donnell attended at his Philadelphia apartment a few years back. It describes how O’Donnell allegedly got drunk and spent the night in his bed, though he says the two never had sex.
Now Smokin’ Gun, through exhaustive investigative work, has zeroed in on the Anonymous author. He’s Dustin Dominiak. And it turns out he works for the Federal Government.
While Kurisko refused to out “Anonymous,” some online activity this evening may point to the author’s identity. Shortly after his last phone conversation with a TSG reporter, a single name disappeared from Kurisko’s list of Facebook friends.
The man with whom electronic ties were abruptly cut is Dustin Dominiak, a 28-year-old buddy who attended Albion College with Kurisko. Records show that Dominiak has previously shared a Philadelphia address with Kurisko. One online posting reports that Dominiak, a Michigan native, has worked as an auditor at the Federal Reserve in Philadelphia…
It has also been revealed by Yahoo News that the anonymous author was paid in the “low four figures” by Gawker for the story.
Over at Smoking Gun we find more information about this in an update, which means more will come of this surely in order to preserve jobs and integrity (will try to follow):
UPDATE: In a phone interview tonight, a besieged Kurisko told TSG that Dominiak is the man pictured with O’Donnell in the Gawker photos. He said that while Dominiak had borrowed his Boy Scouts uniform, he was unaware of the existence of photos of his roommate with O’Donnell.
Kurisko said that he had no idea that Dominiak was preparing the Gawker piece and only became aware of its publication after speaking with a TSG reporter late this afternoon. He added that he is now concerned about “preserving my job” in light of media scrutiny, which has included reporters attempting to contact members of his family. These contacts, Kurisko added, were triggered by a Village Voice report that erroneously identified him as “Anonymous.”
Dominiak is “well aware of the situation,” said Kurisko, who added, “I was not aware this was going down.”
NewsBusters caught an example of the liberal mind in media.
In the span of a mere 50 seconds on Thursday’s NBC Nightly News, Andrea Mitchell managed to apply a conservative ideological tag four times to Pat Toomey, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, yet she failed to issue even a single label for liberal Democratic candidate Joe Sestak.
Sitting at the anchor desk with Brian Williams, Mitchell made clear Toomey “is a Republican fiscal conservative who was fiscally conservative before the Tea Party was cool,” soon repeating, in the narration for her story, how “Toomey is a former Congressman and a fiscal conservative” – all before driving home his ideology once more as she recalled that he “led a conservative Washington interest group.”
This case is growing and evolving, to follow it click the following tags:
Here is the HotAir post on some recent findings:
The US Civil Rights Commission has concluded in an extensive report that the strange decision to dismiss a case the Department of Justice had won by default against a New Black Panther Party activist for voter intimidation came after the involvement of political appointees. Furthermore, and most embarrassing, the 131-page report accuses the Department of Justice of attempting to cover up that involvement, and that the cover-up came from “high-level” officials in the DoJ. The USCRC concludes that the Civil Rights Division is “at war with its core mission”:
The Justice Department has tried to hide the involvement of high-level political officials in the dismissal of a controversial voter-intimidation lawsuit against members of the New Black Panther Party, a federal commission concluded in a draft report.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights said the department’s reversal in the case, which drew criticism from conservatives, indicates that its Civil Rights Division is failing to protect white voters and is “at war with its core mission of guaranteeing equal protection of the laws for all Americans.” …
The commission’s draft report said the department’s “repeated attempts to obscure” the involvement of political appointees in the dismissal “raise questions about what the Department is trying to hide. ”
The report accuses the Justice Department of stonewalling the commission’s investigation and of failing to turn over key documents and make witnesses available. Schmaler disputed that, saying the department provided more than 4,000 pages of documents.
