Hope to see you there!
Odd, immediately after every terror attack or mass shooting, the Left goes straight for the blame Conservative bloggers, politicians, talk host card. They try to blame the NRA, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Ted Cruz, Rush, the Tea Party, etc. They do not wait for evidence before jumping off the Cliff of Conclusions. But, when the evidence begins to be discovered, and they are proven wrong, AGAIN, they immediately launch into do not jump to conclusion mode. Donald Douglas sums them up this way
Leftists truly are the scum of political life.
Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. Take David Sirota for example. After writing that he NEEDED the Boston terrorists to be White, after writing that it would be good if they were White, after making it ALL about race, Sirota has changed his tune
Our reaction to terrorism shouldnt be predicated on the demography of the terrorists. Sad that bigotry apparently obscures this simple truth
Egads, does this buffoon NOT recall writing the piece at Salon? Again, this is why I refer to Liberalism as an Ideology of convenience. They can just change their tune on a whim. But there is more from David
While media is trying not to assert motive, you’ll notice that nobody on TV is making ANY effort to respect a basic presumption of innocence
Now these terrorists who committed a monstrous act are victims in this idiot’s twisted, morally retarded mind, oh but it gets better!
Tweets/emails celebrating fact that suspects are (allegedly) Muslim suggests many white people were hoping that was the case. Question: Why?
So, he can write a column, based on nothing BUT holding out hope that the suspects would be White, but if anyone points out that these two are Muslims, well that is RAAAAACIST! And Sirota has company on the Hypocrisy Express. Check out Sally Kohn’s Tweet
Those rushing to assume motives based on where these guys were from would be cautioning restraint if suspects were from rural Montana
Actually Sally if they were from Montana YOU would be beating the door down to blame Conservatives, and Sirota would likely have had an orgasm over such news. I also love how Sally Kohn is apparently oblivious to the fact that radical Muslims tend to commit far more terror attacks than those Montana folks do. Jim Treacher has the best response to this
The people who’ve been aching for the #BostonMarathon bombing to be motivated by ideas they hate will now shame you for discussing motive.
I think they paid five dollars for it, but the price isn’t the issue, the ideology is. We all know al-Jazeera is heavily biased, and apparently, Al Gore found their ideology similar to his
Before pan-Arab broadcaster al-Jazeera bought Current TV, the fledgling cable news network founded by former Vice President Al Gore, conservative commentator Glenn Beck had pursued purchasing the company — and was rejected.
The Wall Street Journal revealed that when Beck’s TheBlaze TV sought ownership of the Current broadcasting network, the bid was rejected because the principles of Beck’s company did not align with those of Current.
“Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed,” reporters Keach Hagey and John Jannarone wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that ‘the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,'” according to a person familiar with the negotiations.”
The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday that reportedly netted $500 million, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera shares Current TV’s mission “to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”
In other words, Gore is a Leftist, and that makes him far closer to a “news” outfit that carries water for terrorists than to American Conservatives. The mask slips a little more, revealing what the American Left really is.
Liberal hypocrisy, thy name is Al:
Al Jazeera did not disclose the purchase price, but people with direct knowledge of the deal pegged it at around $500 million, indicating a $100 million payout for Mr. Gore, who owned 20 percent of Current. Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1 . . .
Waiting for Team Obama to label Gore as greedy, and waiting, and waiting, and…….
During his show on TheBlazeTV Wednesday, Glenn Beck resumed his discussion on the First Amendment, particularly how it relates to artistic expression. After much controversy surrounding Beck’s creation of an Obama bobble head doll submerged in a mason jar of yellow liquid (which was actually water with food coloring), he sat down with the artist, Michael D’Antuono, who inspired it all with his controversial painting titled “Truth.”
The painting, which features a crucified President Barack Obama wearing a crown of thorns, led Beck to test the limits of freedom of speech.
D’Antuono argued that he did not intend to portray Obama as Christ despite the veil/curtains, crown of thorns and the implied crucifixion. Beck accused him of not being totally honest about his intentions.
“I do not think he is Christ. I was not trying to convey that,” D’Antuono told Beck, explaining the inspiration behind his painting. “Actually, this painting does not convey my own personal opinions. It is more a mirror reflecting the personal opinions and prejudices, preconceived ideas of the viewer. It’s kind of a sociological experiment.”
“I don’t buy that bullcr – come on,” Beck replied. “How do you not say this is an image of Christ? He is splitting the veil, you know that right?”
In response, the artist said there are so many “interpretations” and the curtains could stand for “creating transparency.”
What about the crucifixion pose? D’Antuono said Jesus was not the only person crucified, further defending his claim that he was not depicting Obama as Jesus.
“Crown of Thorns?” Beck asked.
“It could be. But I’m not comparing him to Jesus,” the artist replied.
“This is so dishonest,” Beck interjected.
Watch part one of the interview below via TheBlazeTV:
D’Antuono admitted he saw the “religious reference” but said he was trying to convey that Obama was “metaphorically crucified by the Right.”
“If he says the sky is blue, they are going to say it’s red. And blue is a communist color anyway. If he says he likes puppies they are going to say, well, he hates kittens,” he said. “So he was being crucified no matter what he did.”
Then Beck applied the hypocrisy test: “Would you think that you would ever paint something of me, that I am crucified by the Left?”
“Well, uh, I haven’t given that any consideration,” D’Antuono replied.
Beck also discussed a few of D’Antuono’s other paintings, including one that features a cop in a KKK hood holding a gun to a black child’s head who is holding a bag of skittles. The painting was supposedly “inspired” by the Trayvon Martin case but did not represent it. Beck said he found it “extraordinarily offensive.”
After some tough, but respectful, debating, D’Antuono later admitted that he did not expect Beck to be such a “reasonable person.”
“Yeah, I don’t know how I’m going to go home and tell my family,” the artist joked. “I expected you to try to tear me apart… I think that’s the reputation you have from the Left, but it’s not true.”
Though they agreed on very little, Beck said they were able to have a reasonable conversation about controversial things.
“There’s not enough people on either side that are seen in the media that can have an honest conversation,” Beck added.
The most surprising part of the interview though came at the very end of the segment.
After Beck mentioned the fact that D’Antuono does not watch his show, the artist replied: “Well, I may start.”
“I say all the time: do not take my word for it,” Beck continued. “Don’t trust the president, don’t trust your favorite politician, don’t trust your favorite host on television. Look it up yourself… We have to teach people to look for things themselves and use critical thinking. Almost all of us are zombified.”
On Monday, TheBlaze alerted readers to a new painting that depicts Barack Obama as Jesus Christ crucified, adorned with a crown of thorns. The work, entitled “Truth,” is part of a larger exhibit at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery in Boston titled “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” This, of course, is not the first controversial rendition that has been labeled “artwork,” nor is it the first time President Obama has been likened to Christ, or in general, God.
Now, the creator of “Truth,” Michael D’Antuono, said that his “First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings” and that “we should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.”
After receiving roughly 4,000 angry emails over the painting, D’Antuono also said he respects “their right to express themselves” and hopes they will afford him the same.
With this in mind, Glenn Beck chose to “express himself,” during his Tuesday evening broadcast by featuring a piece of artwork of his own creation.
Watch the clip, sure to make a splash, via TheBlaze TV below:
At some point, Beck decided that submerging an Obama “bobblehead” doll in urine (later revealed to be completely fake) was necessary to convey his artistic message. He of course realizes this will be controversial and that many will find his use of the Obama figurine to be disrespectful. The idea, for Beck however, is not to be untoward, but through irony, to highlight the hypocrisy of those who would shout in defiance at defacing the image of a sitting U.S. president, but not that of an image so sacred to Christianity – the world’s largest religion.
Of course, Beck’s “art” is similar to the infamous anti-Christian photograph titled “Piss Christ,” showing a small plastic crucifix soaked in the artist’s real urine.
Here’s a visual representation of how it all went down:
Beck’s “artwork” also highlights the hypocrisy of those who rail against disparaging Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. If his image were defaced in the same way as Christ’s has been so many times, the backlash could indeed be deadly and the “artist” in question pursued by U.S. law enforcement (as was the case for the creators of the YouTube video “Innocence of Muslims).
Beck did reach out to D’Antuono, inviting him on the program to discuss the First Amendment.
“Truth” is set to remain on display until Dec. 15. Beck, meanwhile, is considering putting his latest artwork up for auction (the price tag says $25,000).
…that people would be living in FEMA camps, and well
When George W. Bush was president, people on the far left pushed an internet conspiracy theory about the government forcing people to live in FEMA Camps.
The conspiracy was eventually debunked by… Glenn Beck.
While I’m not a conspiracy theory guy, I can’t help but notice that many of the victims of Hurricane Sandy are currently living in…. a FEMA Camp.
Know what it’s called? Camp Freedom. The residents report a prison like environment.
George Orwell, please call your office…
He stood and talked in the cool morning air a short distance up the road after security at the front gate threatened to have his car removed outside the entrance to what Sotelo’s identification tag calls “Camp Freedom,” even though it more closely resembles a prison camp.
The Seaside Heights, N.J., resident was at a Toms River, N.J., arena with his wife and three kids a half hour before the shelter opened as superstorm Sandy approached last week. On Wednesday, Sotelo was part of a contingent shifted to this makeshift tent city in a parking lot across the road from a racetrack about 30 miles north.
“Sitting there last night you could see your breath,” Sotelo said. Outside temperatures hovered below freezing, in the upper 20s and low 30s. “At (the arena) the Red Cross made an announcement that they were sending us to permanent structures up here that had just been redone, that had washing machines and hot showers and steady electric, and they sent us to tent city. We got (expletive).
“The elections are over, and here we are. There were Blackhawk helicopters flying over all day and night. They have heavy equipment moving past the tents all night.”
Welcome to the part of the disaster where people start falling through the cracks.

Speaking to the “Lars Larson Show,” father of SEAL Tyrone Woods – who died in Benghazi defending the consulate annex – shared his experience of meeting President Obama and Secretary Clinton at the memorial service for the fallen heroes a few days after the attack. Charles Woods said Obama “couldn’t look me in the eye” and “mumbled” an “I’m sorry”. He said Secretary Clinton assured him that they were going to “arrest and prosecute” the man that made the scapegoated youtube video critical of Allah… Which had nothing to do with the 9-11 terror attack in Benghazi.
Here’s the complete call:
The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya says President Barack Obama wouldn’t even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn’t pass the smell test.
Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on TheBlazeTV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He told host Glenn Beck that what they told him, coupled with new reports that indicate the Obama administration knew very good and well, almost immediately, that a terrorist attack was occurring in Benghazi, make him certain that the American people are not getting the whole truth.
Vice President Biden, as he has become known to do, reportedly made a wildly inappropriate comment to the father who had just lost his hero son.
Woods said Biden came over to his family and asked in a “loud and boisterous” voice, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
“Are these the words of someone who is sorry?” said Woods.
The grieving father also described his brief encounter with President Obama during the ceremony for the Libya victims.
“When he finally came over to where we were, I could tell that he was rather conflicted, a person who was not at peace with himself,” Woods said. “Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish. His face was pointed towards me but he would not look me in the eye, his eyes were over my shoulder.”
“I could tell that he was not sorry,” he added. “He had no remorse.”
Beck said he wanted to give the president “the benefit of the doubt,” and asked Woods how he could be sure that Obama wasn’t just uncomfortable or nervous during their conversation. Woods said it was Obama’s “demeanor.”
Hillary Clinton’s comments to Woods raise even more questions about the White House’s official story on the Benghazi attack, which has already been extremely inconsistent.
After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”
Obviously, Clinton was referring to the anti-Muslim YouTube video that the Obama administration spent nearly two weeks blaming for the attack. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, Clinton and the president himself all blamed the video at various points. Beck pointed out that the White House is now trying to claim that it has always considered terrorism as the cause of the attack.
“When she said that, I could tell that she was not telling me the truth,” Woods said about Clinton.
Watch part I of the interview with Beck here via TheBlazeTV:
Reading another State Department email that further calls into question the U.S. response to the attack, Beck revealed that the U.S. government was made aware that the compound in Benghazi was under attack by “mortar fire,” hardly a sign of a spontaneous protest.
“The question that I had in my mind,” Woods replied, “was why did we not do something to protect our forces?”
“We didn’t even dispatch anybody,” Beck lamented.
“You released the information that the White House within minutes of the attack, watched in real time the events unfolding,” Woods told Beck earlier in the program. “They denied the pleas for help and they watched my son die.”
Woods went on to read the following statement, in honor of his son:
“I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. In the last few days it has become public knowledge that within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied. Apparently, C-130s were ready to respond immediately. In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision. This has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage. This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.”
Tears in his eyes, Beck told Woods that his son was not even there for security purposes but after hearing cries for help he voluntarily protected his fellow Americans, knowing his life would be put in danger. Beck called Tyrone Woods a “hero” multiple times throughout the show.
“I am sorry for your loss, and I know there are millions of Americans that are sorry for your loss,” Beck concluded.
Watch part II of the interview here via TheBlazeTV:
OK, I think I straightened that up! Also, do I KNOW Ellison has tie to the MB? No. Would it surprise me if he did? No!
WASHINGTON — Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) laughed off claims by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) that he has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and said she makes such baseless accusations because, deep down, she thinks Muslims are “evil.”
Bachmann was already in hot water this week for saying Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may be part of a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government. Despite being criticized by leaders of her own party, Bachmann on Thursday said Ellison, one of two Muslims in Congress, also has connections to the hard-line Islamic group.
“He has a long record of being associated with [the Council on American–Islamic Relations] and with the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann said during an interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show.
