Left-wing blowhard and radio host Stephanie Miller has great news for her liberal cohorts. “Republican” is now a bad word. A study from NSON Opinion Strategy — yeah, I’d never heard of them before now either — said that 87% of their respondents found the word “Republican” synonymous with greed, racism, and violence.
As Bryan Preston and Stephen Kruiser noted last week, the liberal media has mounted a campaign to destroy Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). He’s a high priority target because he goes against everything the media has said about the Tea Party, and conservatism in general. For all the talk about the Tea Party’s anti-intellectualism, Cruz received his B.A. at Princeton University, and his Juris Doctor at Harvard University. He also clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist. As George Will wrote back in June of 2011:
Watch out for those spooky gun owners! At least that’s what The Journal News wants you to think when they published the names and addresses of everyone with a handgun permit in Westchester and Rockland counties.
Journal News released the Google Map, which doxed these people, through an affiliate site called lohud.com on December 22.
I stand firm with my fellow members at the National Rifle Association. I couldn’t be more proud to be part of an organization that defends the Second Amendment, which is one of the most important rights within our Constitution. Over the past forty-eight hours, the NRA has been slammed for being somehow complicit in the various incidents connected gun violence – with the most recent being that awful tragedy in Newtown, CT.
Yes, abortion rights activists have reached a new level of depravity. Apparently, as everyone indulges in the holiday spirit, the pro-choice camp decided to create abortion ornaments – or ‘abornaments’ – to be part of the commemoration of the birth of Christ. The fact that pro-choice Americans threw this in the face of those who practice religion, or hold pro-life beliefs, is offensive in the extreme. Steven Ertelt of Life News wrote on December 19:
In the wake of the Newtown shootings, the left is clamoring for more gun control. They want to ban assault weapons – which is liberal speak for scary guns – and do something about high-capacity magazines because they incentivize us to be mean, vicious, and violent. However, as John Fund noted in National Review, it’s time to talk about the mental illness aspect of this debate – and dismantle to frivolous concept of ‘gun-free zones.’ Zones that keep those within its perimeter perpetually unarmed and exposed to danger.
We’ve all seen the video of the Lansing, Michigan union protests. They’re mad that Gov. Rick Snyder passed a right-to-work law, which would curtail the power unions have in the state. It’s Wisconsin reloaded. However, the level of thuggery and violence has reached a whole new level. Union supporters thought that they could really make a difference in this debate by tearing down an Americans for Prosperity tent, which was located outside the state capitol building. The tent had women and children inside – and one union supporter assaulted conservative commentator and Fox News contributor Steven Crowder multiple times during the chaos. Crowder has been receiving death threats ever since he dared to cover the event.
While a horrific tragedy occurred in Newtown, CT, a similar event was stopped in Oklahoma. Sammie Eaglebear Chavez, who is only 18, plotted an attack on his high school in Bartlesville, according to Fox News.
An arrest affidavit says Chavez tried to convince other students to help him lure students into the auditorium, chain the doors shut and start shooting. The Tulsa World reports that authorities say Chavez threatened to kill students who didn’t help.
The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reports Chavez planned to detonate bombs at the doors as police arrived. The school district says students were never in danger. Chavez is being held on $1 million bond.
The tragedy in Newton, CT should shake us all to our very core. Of the 26 who were killed yesterday, 20 of them were children. It’s evil. It’s grotesque. And I’m sure many mothers and fathers were holding their children a little tighter last night. Sadly, for twenty families, that will no longer be possible. Our thoughts and prayers should go out to everyone, especially to the brave teachers who sacrificed their lives to save their students. One teacher, Vicki Soto, shielded her students from the gunfire – and made the ultimate sacrifice. Recently, the full list of the deceased were released by the police.
Here we go again. Conservative blogger and Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin has reaped a whirlwind of hate tweets from fans of hip/hop artist The Game. It’s due to the cover art of his new album Jesus Piece, which features a depiction of Christ that some consider blasphemous. Malkin had a post about it on her blog on December 11. According to Twitchy:
I hate raising taxes. I find high tax rates immoral. However, we lost the election. An increase in revenue is inevitable. What’s perverse about this whole episode is that if we fall off the cliff – Democrats will get everything they want. They’ll get their tax increases, their revenue, and defense cuts. They would complete their decade-long project of ending the Bush Tax Cuts and gutting of the Pentagon. They have no incentive to meet us halfway, or negotiate in a meaningful way to make sure the markets don’t tank. They don’t need to. They won. In the meantime, Americans should prepare for the worst.
