None Dare Call it… Treason!

Glenn Back is at it again – this time discussing poisoning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -

The Right Wing in this country has been on a steadily downward spiral since the Contract on America, Neut Gingrich “revolution” in 1994. Spurned by voters for near 40 years, Republicans sought “to get some of their own back” from the real and perceived slights inflicted upon members of the minority Party.

Republicans took majority control of the House in 1994 with a chip on their shoulder – and that chip, despite holding power for 12 years – never left.

That chip included private and public derisiion of the Left, and a naked attempt to turn the term “Liberal” into an epithet, a 6 year campaign to illigitimately impeach a sitting President through any means necessary, as well as repeated attacks upon his family…

It’s crossed the line.

There has been a massive upsurge in death threats agains President Obama

President Obama has gotten more death threats in a shorter period of time than any other president in US history. The legion of right side talk radio gabbers, the GOP induced professional mobsters who commit orchestrated mayhem at health care town halls, the birthers, the countless websites and chatrooms that crackle with anti Obama venom, and the endless montage of race baiting cartoons, characterizations and depictions of Obama and First Lady Michelle have created a viperous climate of hate and that knows no bounds.

There have also been death threats against Democrat Congressmen -

Congressman Gets Death Threat for Not Holding Public Meeting

Democratic Rep. Brad Miller received the call Monday, one of hundreds the congressman’s office has fielded demanding town-hall meetings on the health care proposal, said his spokeswoman, LuAnn Canipe. She said the callers were “trying to instigate town halls so they can show up and disrupt.”

Miller never had plans to hold a town-hall meeting of people to discuss the plan.
The threatening caller, when told by a staffer that Miller was not planning a meeting, claimed the congressman didn’t want to meet with people face to face because he knew it would cost him his life, according to Canipe. The staffer then asked if the caller was making a threat. The caller, said Canipe, replied that there are a lot of angry people out there.

Threatening the lives of our elected representatives…

Is treason.

And it is time for Law Enforcement to persue it as such.

Color of Change, Jack and Jill Turn Up the Heat On Racist Commentator

This from Jack and Jill, which is cross posted at Firedoglake, Huffington Post, and DailyKos. This was authored by James Rucker -

(Just in case you forgot)

Last week, after Glenn Beck called President Obama a “racist” who has a “deep-seated hatred for white people,” we asked ColorOfChange members to call on Beck’s advertisers to pull their funding from his show. More than 50,000 people have already joined the call, and today we have great news to report — advertisers are starting to listen:

Three companies who run ads during Glenn Beck — NexisLexis-owned Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance — today distanced themselves from Beck. LexisNexis has pulled its advertising from Beck and says it has no plans to advertise on the program in the future. Both Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance called the Beck advertising placements an error that they would correct.

Since we released our statement announcing the news this morning, another company, S.C. Johnson (Pledge, Ziplock, Off!) told us that it was a mistake for their ads to be running on Beck’s show, and that they’d make sure it wouldn’t happen again in the future. (UPDATE: Our contact at S.C. Johnson wanted us to clarify that they have had no knowledge of their ad running on the Glenn Beck show (they wanted to verify this for themselves), and if it did happen, it was not something they requested.)

This is great progress, and it shows how effective it can be when thousands of people tell advertisers not to support this kind of hateful rhetoric. Now we need to step up the pressure on Beck’s other advertisers. While Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance were quick to respond, many others have avoided answering us, or refused to budge. We’re currently in conversations with advertisers, and the more people they see joining this campaign, the more reason they’ll have to listen.

If you haven’t done so already, please sign our petition to Beck’s advertisers, and ask your friends and family to do the same. Moving forward, we’ll keep you informed about effective ways you can pressure the advertisers to withdraw their support from Beck’s show.

If you can stomach it, here’s a half hour video of sickening race-baiting from Glenn Beck, put together by Media Matters…

For the rest of this article, please check out Jack and Jill. Also, if you, like I – are sick and tired of the racist conservative cretins spewing hate all over our airwaves…

Sign the petition – and help make a change.

Juan Williams Develops a Backbone… The Jello Hardens

Let’s face it – the only reason for black pundits like Juan Williams on Faux News is to be trotted out to reliably provide cover for white commentators racist statements. Juan Williams has filled that Tom in residence role well.

Here, Juan falls off the Faux Wagon, and actually develops a new body part…

A spine. He actually develops the temerity to criticize Glen Beck!

It’s still Jello… But it’s a spine.

Back to Faux Central Juan!

Glenn Beck – Save us, Osama!

Just when you thought the right in this country couldn’t get any whackier…

Along come Glen Beck’s guest, who believes that only Osama Bin Lauden can save America!

A nuke for the Fourth!

This comes on the heels of the GOP telling another right wing fruit loop to sit down and STFU! Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota wants to boycott the census.

Republican colleagues have now called her boycott illogical and illegal.

“Every elected representative in this country should feel a responsibility to encourage full participation in the census. To do otherwise is to advocate for a smaller share of federal funding for our constituents,” Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and John Mica (R-Fla.) said in a statement.

Seems to me he good folks of Minnesota should be mounting a recall petition…

“Too stupid to serve”.
