There Isn’t Any Violence-anywhere-from anybody on the Left~Ed Schultz

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:

Audio here.

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.

The left has been mum about the choking of a conservative reporter by a MoveOn.org crazy.

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.

—How bout a black man, Kenneth Gladney, being beaten by SEIU union thugs at a democratic health-care meeting (https://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: https://religiopoliticaltalk.com/2010/06/the-peaceful-left-just-like-the-peaceful-flotilla/)

—A Democratic Congressman attacks two students violently (https://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.

Too Bad-Soo Sad (the Polorizing Ed Schultz)

HotAir has some great input on Ed Schultz that makes me laugh at the audacity of dope:

Remember how leftists were accusing Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck of being a polarizing figure after and especially before his “Restoring Honor” rally? He was too outspoken, not nuanced enough. Well, how about this?

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz at “One Nation”: “We must fight the forces of evil – the conservatives.”

He went on to say that:

They want it for them, they don’t want it for the people. They talk about the Constitution, but they don’t want to live by it. They talk about our forefathers, but they want discrimination. They want to change this country.

If that’s not “polarizing,” I don’t know what is. “They want discrimination”? Really? Strange, I’ve never heard, say, a Tea Party speaker advocate reintroducing segregation. In fact, if memory serves me well, Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally featured several prominent African American speakers, who demanded an end to Obama’s “divide-and-conquer”-politics. If conservatives “want discrimination,” why is it that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, was happy to accept Beck’s invitation to speak at his event, that stressed moral values such as honor, honesty and respect?

Glenn Beck’s Rally


One Nation Rally

While estimates for Beck’s rally are 300,000 (really more like 500,000 — but to go with the major news orgs, 300,000), much less came for the One Nation Rally, period. Politics and World News has this post on the event:

The One Nation Rally which transpired on Saturday is the talk of the political circles. After the Glenn Beck rally, it only made sense that the liberal demographic would stage their very own event. However, it appears as if the attendance figures for the one nation rally are actually far less than Glenn Beck’s rally attendance.

Now, there will be people that argue until they are blue in the face. However look at the photograph here – one of the photos were taken at Beck’s rally and the other was taken at this weekend’s One Nation rally. Tell me which crowd appear larger?

However, no one is releasing totals on the attendance of the One Nation rally. One non-partisan satellite imagery company issued an estimate of 87,000 for Beck’s rally attendance, although he claims more like 500,000 attended. The One Nation organizers claim that 175,000 to 200,000 came to their rally.

The politics are heated, and therefore we won’t have a concrete total from the rally. Whose rally was better, Beck’s or One Nation? It all depends on who you ask.
What attendance do you think was better – one Nation or Glenn Beck?

One of my favorite commentaries comes from Protein Wisdom, and PW sums up the speakers presentations:

If you can stand more than ten minutes of dreck — the Left farce known as “One Nation” march on D.C. A group consisting of the usual Progressive groups — from SEIU, AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood to Socialist Democrats of America and the American Communist Party.

I’ve listened to the opening “march reasons” which included (quotes as I heard them)

We march against in resegregation from Arizona to Atlanta.

We march against when a handful of Senators can block progress and keep tax cuts for the rich.

And now the first speaker is the deranged, demented Ed Schultz.

“The conservatives voices of America want to keep you down. They don’t believe in your freedom.”

What a fucknut among other fucknuts.

*******************

“We need to value people over profits” … For pity’s sake, does the Left ever go beyond its old, moldy, risible slogans of the past?

*******************

“Go back to the slums of our Northern cities knowing this must change.” Does the little proggie mouthing that line even stop to consider the worst city slums are in cities that have been run exclusively by Democrats according to Progressive “values”?

*******************

What is striking so far is the lack of enthusiasm in the crowd. I’m not hearing much in the way of applause and reaction to the speeches. I wish there were more crowd shots; there seems to be a lot of milling around, large groups of people wearing the same t-shirts (union affiliation?)

Seems this rally is being phoned in as well as it was bused in.

*******************

“If my gender is respected but other genders are pushed to a life of seclusion … things are not right” Eddie Flores (?) from Los Angeles.

Um…just how many genders are there and which one is being “pushed to seclusion”? Interesting line from an East El-Lay cholo who described himself as a 23 year old who has a “lifetime of pursuing social justice.”

******************

SEIU rep now takes the podium and tries to get the crowd to chant.

Fail.

******************

We had the muzak version of Lennon’s lame “Imagine” and interpretive dance at the beginning, now we get Black Ice, a hip-hop poet.

Oh, lord.

******************

Van Jones! “It’s our turn now.”

Whoops…quick crowd shot and they are just not paying attention!

“We have a Saudia Arabia of solar power beaming down on us right now.” [facepalm]

Now Van is talking about wind power “You’ve never heard of a ‘wind slick’ or ‘wind spill’.”

“We care about red states, too. We have some real answers for them.” I bet you do, Van; I bet you do.

*********************

More credibility for this rally: here’s Al Sharpton!

Little Proggie college coed who doesn’t want to connect Federal interference in higher education and the explosion of tuition fees. Kinda says how economics is taught, eh?

Sharpton pulls the race card. Yawn.

**********************

Another crowd shot … lots of empty chairs shown.

**********************

Some greyhaired “Native American” comedian (sic) [Charlie Hill?] who, if the crowd reaction is any indication, is a reject from open-mic night. Where’s that giant hook when you need it?

He slams Beck, Palin and others then says “Now is the time of healing.” Oky, doky …

**********************

Barbara Elliot, union organizer: “We don’t just need jobs, we need jobs for justice.” Um, anyone want to take a stab at translating that one?

Larry Cohen is now slamming Xerox. Oh yeah… “One Nation” demanding an immediate one million jobs. Just what tree do they think those jobs grow on?

**********************

Shot of professionally printed signs. Yep, this is really a “grassroots” rally.

Now time for some more Progressive union demogoguery.

**********************

Dick Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO: “If you watch TV you’d think we were a nation full of hate.” heh

**********************

Yikes … I needed to take a break for a while and return to see Jesse Jackson on stage!

Oh, an illegal alien college student who is saying “It wasn’t MY fault I’m here … pay me.”

JJ: “When Michelle Obama speaks of obesity in children, she is on the right side of history.” Wow, I’m inspired, aren’t you?

*********************

“The terrorism in the modern work place.” Excuse me?

Victoria Rowell is now saying it is impossible for any person to be represented by any one else but another person of the same melanin-level or sexual orientation. Indeed, this sneering little collectivist makes clear that individuals are to be judged by their group they are assigned to and by the actions/words of the leaders of that group.

Sorry, Vicki, but that is antithetical to America.

Beau Sia, Siam Poet — Coming next to an over-priced, free-trade coffee shop near you.

Um…. he finishes a poem talking about how wonderful and valuable teachers are, then the bump music as he leaves the stage from Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall ? “Hey, Teacher, leave those kids …” and the snippet cuts off. Hilarious.

The crowd is thinning out and not interested.

Whoa!! Speakers are still at the podium and the cameras swung to the crowd. I snagged this screenshot:

No one left the Restoring Honor Rally early. This was supposed to rival that.

Astroturf ain’t just what it is all cracked up to be, eh, Proggies? Even Soro’s money and Union-financed buses couldn’t keep the paid butts in those seats.
*************************************
The Proggie chick speaking is saying that the government must provide a “safety net”, but what she really wants is a hammock.

George Clinton introduced with “…here to perform one of the 500 most important songs in America.”

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA …. I’m sorry, but the unintended comedy is hilarious ….
*******************************
ouch… GC is really pathetic trying to play to empty chairs. This is embarrassing. Just when I thought this thing couldn’t go any lower ….
****************************
1:36 PDT the rally is mercifully over … there were some speakers left on the roster, but even the rally organizers couldn’t keep putting them on before an audience that was consistently apathetic and started bailing out much earlier.

Fox News Does Better Even Among Democrats


News Busters posted something that goes well with an old graph I post often… sort of like a “rub in your face fact” I like to put on the screen to irk passerbys. Here is the NB post followed by the graph:

According to a recent poll, likely voters get their political news primarily from cable television. Among cable channels, 42 percent, a plurality, watch Fox News for its political coverage. Only 12 percent said they watched MSNBC. What’s more, most likely voters don’t like or have never heard of MSNBC’s prime time talent.

The poll, conducted by Politico and George Washington University, used a sample split evenly between political parties – even slightly favoring Democrats in some areas: 41 percent of respondents identified as Republicans, while 42 percent said they were Democrats. Forty-four percent said they usually vote for Republicans, while 46 percent answered Democrats. Forty-eight percent voted for Obama, while only 45 percent voted for McCain.

Even among this group, Fox News is by far the most popular cable outlet. CNN comes in at second, with 30 percent. A sorry MSNBC brings up the rear.

MEDIAite goes further with the stats:

Also not surprising: Fox News hosts wield a great deal of influence over the political discourse in this country:

Bill O’Reilly was rated as having, by far, the greatest positive impact, with 49 percent of respondents rating him positively, and 32 percent negatively. Glenn Beck was the second most-positively rated personality, with 38 percent of respondents saying he had a positive impact, and 32 percent saying he had a negative impact.

Rush Limbaugh meanwhile is losing steam and far more people dislike him than like him (36%-52%). Here’s the surprising part however: Very few people polled had heard of Rachel Maddow.

MSNBC’s personalities were largely ranked as unknown by respondents: 70 percent said they had never heard of Ed Schultz, 55 percent said they had never heard of Rachel Maddow and 42 percent said they had never heard of Keith Olbermann…

Ed Schultz Showing His Ineptitude (98% Myth)

Ed Schultz continues the lie that the Bush tax-cuts only effect the top 2% of income earners. Let me tell you something. I have been diagnosed with MS, and my first bout with it was bad. Now, I like to say I’m 95% healthy and ready and raring to work. Yeah! Try and find a job right now. My wife has been blessed to just cover us. Ask her if the Bush tax cuts affect her or not…

I’d venture to say that most Americans who became parents in the last decade know Schultz’s claim is glaringly inaccurate for a specific reason — the child tax credit, which doubled to $1,000 per-child annually under the Bush tax cut of 2001. And helpfully indeed for those of us who aren’t wealthy, the child tax credit extended across all income brackets.

We are far from the top tier of income earners. NewsBusters continues:

“Unless Congress votes to extend the tax credit, the maximum amount will revert back to $500 for tax year 2011, and the number of families eligible for that amount will be much less as tougher eligibility standards that existed prior to EGTRRA (Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act) will go back into effect,” writes Eric Fox at Forbes.com.

As described by Erik Erickson yesterday at RedState, the Bush tax cut of 2001 was “George Bush’s version of Barack Obama’s stimulus plan” —

However, instead of creating a bunch of temporary government jobs and subsidizing the expansion of government, it cut tax rates, increased the child tax credit, increased the standard deduction for married couples, and increased contribution caps for a variety of savings programs. The result? The recession ended in November of 2001. (Source)

But, September 11, 2001, happened as the economy was recovering and throughout 2002, the economy grew at an anemic rate. The Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 revved up the 2001 tax cut package and cut taxes again on dividends and capital gains.

The result?

Under George W. Bush’s ‘tax cuts for the rich’ the rich paid more in taxes in 2005 than any time in the prior 20 years. In fact, as the Wall Street Journal noted, thanks to George W. Bush’s tax cuts for the rich, the richest one percent went from paying 25 percent of all income taxes in 1990 to 39 percent in 2005. The richest 5 percent went from paying 44 percent of all income taxes in 1990 to paying 60 percent of all income taxes in 2005.

… More crucially, after the 2001 initial tax cuts, the annual growth rate went from 0.3 percent in 2001 to 2.5 percent in 2002. By 2004, GDP growth was the highest in 20 years. (Source)

Likewise, after the 2003 tax cuts, the unemployment rate fell to the lowest level since World War II. Let me repeat that: the Bush economic program created the lowest unemployment level ever. In fact, economists liken it to full employment given the demographic composition of those who were left on the unemployment line.

Ed Schultz vs. “God Bless the USA”

NewsBusters highlights some of Ed Schultz crazy — almost anti-American — view point of “God Bless the USA.”

Remember when every time we invaded an oil-rich country or any time there was any kind of confrontation, we were subjected to — ad nauseam, I might add — [mock sings, really badly] “God bless the USA.” That Lee Greenwood song…I mean, Every single event! Every time we were marching to the flowers put at our feet in Iraq, it was more Lee Greenwood! [mock singing again] “God bless the USA!”

Man, we need an oil spill song is what we need! We need to get somebody — [laughs at himself] Some idea, somewhere, some songwriter out there’s gotta come up with something, to remind us, just like Lee Greenwood reminded us that it was the right thing to do to love America and invade everybody. We need some song out there to remind us that, [sings] “It’s BP!”
