BLOGTOPIA

Special "Hate America" edition. Complete with authentic wingnut insignia above.


Hate-a-poolza is coming soon. The “entertainment” is listed here. Topics will include,

Liberal Sisters of Doom: Are They a Thing of the Past?
Courts Gone Wild: The Rightful Place of Judges in Our Republic
Left Out: Exposing Liberal Groups Plus the exciting
Democracy in Action: Voting at the Polling Booth and With Your Pocketbook The Role of the Church in Political Issues
Carpetbagger report has the scoop:

The Family Research Council, DC's most powerful religious right lobbying group, is hosting a major conference this Friday called the "2006 Values Voter Summit." For a mere $95, attendees can hear three days worth of far-right, theocratic rhetoric from nearly all of the movement's most prominent leaders and activists, including James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, Tony Perkins, and Don Wildmon. Perhaps most importantly, a featured guest will be none other than Ann Coulter.....I count at least five people — George Allen, Sam Brownback, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and my own governor, Mitt Romney — who are rumored to be running for president and who come to wallow with a woman who recommends the assassination of Supreme Court justices…. confirmed speakers also include Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), and Reps. Marilyn Musgrave (R-Colo.) and Mike Pence (R-Ind.). How on earth is this considered politically acceptable? Obviously, members of Congress and presidential aspirants can speak to whomever they please. But in 2006, there seems to be no far-right fringe nut too far over the conservative cliff for GOP leaders to avoid. If Ward Churchill organized a conference in DC, no elected Democrat would want anything to do with the event.....And yet leading conservative lawmakers seem to think nothing of an appearance — six weeks before nationwide elections, no less — in front of a thousand fringe activists, hate-filled personalities, and theocons anxious to establish a Taliban-west like government in the United States....the guest list includes one prominent conservative who believes America deserved the 9/11 attacks (Falwell), and another who lashed out at 9/11 widows (Coulter).

My question here is how do they get away with it and still retain tax exempt status? Shouldn't those that are religious “leaders” lose their tax exempt status for mixing politics and religion? If not the “other” religious leaders might want to look at a similar event featuring topics like Saving our Constitution, Restoring our environment, Alms to the poor, Equal rights for all people, Exposing the right wing fascists etc.
Thanks to Tim for the tip.

Delusions of Granduer
Bill O'Reilly may be the most fervent flag waver on cable—a patriot who believes in torturing terrorists and profiling all Muslims. But is that enough to get him targeted by Al Qaeda? The loofah-loving Fox News host is raising plenty of eyebrows around the office after telling Barbara Walters in an interview with ABC's 20/20 that, "the FBI came in and warned me and a few other people at Fox News that Al Qaeda had us on a death list."......A skeptical federal law enforcement official told Radar this morning: "I'm not aware of any FBI agents warning anyone at Fox News of their presence on any list....For that matter, I'm not aware of any Al Qaeda hit list targeting journalists.

Who gets the gold medal for torture? From Billmon:
No one can argue that the Iraqi people would be better off with the thugs and murderers back in the palaces. Who would prefer that Saddam's torture chambers still be open?
George W. Bush
Speech Marking First Anniversary of Iraq InvasionMarch 19, 2004

Torture in Iraq is reportedly worse now than it was under deposed president Saddam Hussein, the United Nations' chief anti-torture expert said Thursday.
Manfred Nowak described a situation where militias, insurgent groups, government forces and others disregard rules on the humane treatment of prisoners.
"What most people tell you is that the situation as far as torture is concerned now in Iraq is totally out of hand," said Nowak, the global body's special investigator on torture. "The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein."
Associated Press
Torture reaches new depths in Iraq September 21, 2006

It takes a rare combination of stupidity, incompetence and bone-headed arrogance to make Saddam's murderous regime look benign by comparison. But that's what the American reign of error in Iraq has managed to accomplish. Instead of an end to terror, Bush and his merry band of neocolonialists have unleashed a terror without end.

What really torques me is pointing out something obvious like this and listening to the sheeple, daddy Bush people talk about how it is all about “hate America” or “Bush hate”. Clinton hate was about Clinton personally. Their so called “Bush hate” is about the policies of dear leader! Anyone who addresses real concerns with something as lame as “Bush or America hate” deserves no respect whatsoever from me or any other American who cares about what happens to America or the rest of the world.

Speaking of those who”hate America” This list from Sadly No,

Duly noted. I will add the JAGs to my personal list of groups that hate America. This list already includes:
-The CIA-The State Department-The Media-The Miller brewing company-The Democratic Party-Europeans-Mexico-Arabs-Persians-The Chinese-All other swarthy non-white peoples
Or put another way: the .000000000000001% of the world’s population that agrees with Powerline(wingnut site) is right, while the rest of us are wrong.
UPDATE: Buh-doing! How did I forget to add the gays? Well, I’m fixing that right now:
-The gays


A very incomplete list. Let's just say if you don't love Bush/Cheney and agree with everything they do you are an America hater.

The liberal media failed to cover this watch the video.

Speaking of the liberal media:
I've got to ask why a decorated Vietnam veteran and senior member of Congress is being swiftboated just for speaking out and using his right of free speech?

This is the promotional:
Our speaker line-up represents the spectrum of events of the War on Terror

Really, are they going to tell us about the mistakes? That would have to be included in the “spectrum” wouldn't it?

and of the harm caused to that War by John Murtha's inexcusable remarks about our troops in Iraq "[killing] innocent civilians in cold blood."

Gee, I think our military leaders have noted that this happened and have brought some up on charges.

Leading off will be Earl Johnson, a survivor of the World Trade Center attack,

Oh using those “victims” that in Anne Coulters words, we are not able to attack.
who represents those who cannot represent themselves--those whose sacrifice caused America to take notice of the danger facing them.
Earl will be followed by David Beamer, whose son Todd uttered the immortal words, "Let's roll!" as United Flight 93 passengers fought the terrorists who had taken over their aircraft.


Oops, according to the “Coulter Rule” can't attack him either.

Next will be Gregg Garvey, a Gold Star father whose son Justin died in Iraq. Gregg will lead a short memorial service dedicated to those who have died in defense of liberty.

Guess he is the Cindy Sheehan of the right. Sorry, can't attack him either.

Fourth will be Gold Star father John Wroblewski, whose Marine son died in Iraq. John has a heart-wrenching, yet inspirational, story to tell about his family's sacrifice in the War on Terror.

Ditto

Our fifth speaker will be Terry Pennington, whose son Rob resides in the USMC brig in Camp Pendleton, CA, the victims of the hysteria contributed to by John Murtha's anti-military remarks. Terry puts a human face on the costs incurred by what John Murtha said and continues to do.

Hey, it's all Murthas fault that his son is in the brig. Oh sorry “Coulter Rule” again.
If this is as deep as the issue goes for you just give me my goulashes and I will quickly traipse across your shallow mind.

In regards to the establishment media and right bloggers reaction to Chaves' statements about Bush:
www.consortiumnews.com/2006/092306.html.

Yes, more "liberal" media. Its obvious, and should be pointed out to everyone we speak to, that the establishment media predominately supports right-wing views and right-wing pundits for whatever reason.
