Rush Tries To Paint The Occupy Wall Street Crowd As Antisemitic

Rush Limbaugh may be as conniving and as hateful as they come, but he is outdoing himself more and more. With his usual mindless flair of flinging shit on the wall and seeing what sticks, today on his radio he has sent the first salvo against the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowds. He is secretly laying the undertone for his mindless minions to pick up their marching orders and declare the OWS as antisemitic. Below is a feed courtesy of Media Matters.

Occupy Wall Street: Don’t Believe Just What You Hear In The Media

When you arrive, check your pre-conceived talking points at the curb, but do engage in respectful discourse. Observe and participate in a general assembly. Do not judge by their attire but what they vocalize. There are conservative voices amongst the crowd and they are welcomed as long as mutual respect is shown.

The Man To Beat Eric Cantor

The Man To Beat Eric Cantor

Eric Cantor is just one member of Congress, but his influential position puts him smack in the middle of the Democrats’ radar. It’s imperative that Cantor’s challenger be smart, progressive, appealing to the populous and most importantly, electable.

Meet The Republican Nominee, Herman Koch-Cain!

If Herman Cain’s 999 plan…or as Bachmann put it the ‘Devil is in the details’ 666 plan, comes to fruition, the poor will surely die in great numbers, while the rich in this country will see their tax rates plummet by some 17%.

Herman Cain’s 15 Minutes Of Fame

I hope Herman Cain enjoys his 15 minutes of fame, because once people find out what is in his 9-9-9 plan, his popularity is going to sink like a stone. It is the largest tax giveaway in history to corporate America, while it places an unfair tax burden onto the backs of the poor.

A surge of re-energized American citizens positioned in cities across the country are carrying out the grassroots ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement (or the ’99 Percent Movement’) with an intelligent and provoking agenda that invokes real patriotic citizenship – much unlike the backwards Tea Party protests that have done little more than pervert our founding ideals while hidden under the guise of Americanism.

Rick Perry Thinks The American Revolution Occurred In The 1500s

The only year Rick Perry needed to remember was 1776. But he couldn’t even do that. Perry was asked about state’s rights by a local ABC affiliate, and apparently he thinks America declared independence from England a full two centuries earlier than the actual date. He made the revolutionary blunder while visiting Dartmouth College after the GOP Debate last night.

On October 5, 2011, I was alerted to a little article in Feministing wherein the author referred to the situation being discussed as a ‘clusterf**k.’ This got my immediate attention–thinking perhaps Dad was sending me a message–and I discovered that due to budget cuts, Shawnee County’s (Topeka) District Attorney, Chad Taylor, would no longer be prosecuting misdemeanors, including domestic violence cases.
