Libs Quiet on Conservative Assaults

I’ve been watching Media Matters fake concern over the Reid-supporting chick punched at a townhall forum this week.

Suddenly Eric Boehlert is a defender of women. Except when those women are conservative, because hey, Kelly Owens and Allee Bautsch TOTALLY had it coming, right?

Because Media Matters likes to portray itself to its three readers as being objective and high enough to serve as a faux-journalism critique, I expected to find tons on the on-video, cop-witnessed (as per police report) assault of Kelly Owens by the SEIU crowd. So I did a little search in the Media Matters’ archives:

What? That bastion of media purity, the calvary to the rightwing media, the Soros-funded “media” outlet didn’t have anything about the assault of conservative Kelly Owens?

OK, so I imagine that they’re hurriedly drafting a post now to remedy that glaring oversight, since, afterall, they’re such huge defenders of women all of a sudden.

I figured that Media Matters/Eric Boehlert/George Soros would also have written about the severe beating of Allee Bautsch, too, right?

That’s ‘No for $200,’ Alex. Oh, wait, sorry, MMfA did mention Bautsch’s name in an attack on Jim Hoft. So, that’s something, right?

So why, after all this time, nothing on MMfA on either Owens or Bautsch? Why the silence? Why the double-standard?

We’ve had:

tea partiers attacked in Florida:

– an Obamacare supporter bite the fingers off a man;

– SEIU and lefty crowd beating Kenneth Gladney;

– I received threats concerning my children just last week from a leftist and have since involved the police and the cyber crimes division and, along with my station who is involved, am pursuing maximum criminal charges against the perpetrator

leftists threatened Andrew Breitbart in Nevada

leftists spit on people, call Breitbart and conservatives at Right Nation gay slurs

leftists assault a videographer at a public event

a lefty congressman assaults two college kids

– the assault of Nathan Tabor and his wife

More lefty assaults, lefty screeching and intimidation, threats of assault, advocating violence, hateful rallies.

Meanwhile, the tea parties repudiate any such things.

Violence in lieu of discourse is wrong, period. Party, ideology is irrelevant.

Why are only the conservatives saying this, though?

Maybe Media Matters can do a story on it.

Who Burned the Koran That Resulted in These Muslims Firing RPGs into Church?

In 2007, no less. Who did it?

Father Manuel Musallem, head of Gaza’s Latin church,told the AP that Muslims have ransacked, burned and looted a school and convent that are part of the Gaza Strip’s small Romany Catholic community. He told the AP that crosses were broken, damage was done to a statue of Jesus, and at the Rosary Sister School and nearby convent, prayer books were burned.

[…]

Father Musalam additionally told The Jerusalem Post that the Muslim gunmen used rocket-propeled grenades (RPGs) to blow through the doors of the church and school, before burning Bibles and destroying every cross they could get their hands on.

Who burned the Koran that resulted in the murder of ten Christian missionaries last month?

Or the murder of CIA agents earlier this year?

Or the USS Cole?

Or the countless airplane hijackings, discotheque bombings, etc., etc., etc.

No, instead, the focus is on some Yosemite Sam-looking pastor from Florida. No, he wasn’t being what the Scripture tells us is a good ambassador of faith, which is probably why only 50 people comprise his congregation. However, this is America, and in America you can burn whatever you want because free speech wasn’t designed to protect only the speech and expressions with which we are comfortable. It’s easy to claim tolerance and acceptance of the things with which you agree; the true test comes when you’re faced with speech (no defamation, not libel, but SPEECH) that you don’t like. Denying such is wholly inconsistent. And it’s no place for any member of government to butt in and instruct private citizens on how they can conduct their private activities. If you want to not put a target on our soldiers’ backs (which countless veterans who’ve called into my show tell me is already there) maybe stop the Wikileaks crap, stop broadcasting to terrorists when we’re leaving Afghanistan, stop getting in front of the cameras and drumming up attention to what one dude in Florida wants to do. And these people run our government? Facepalm.

Obama says that “As Americans, we will not or ever be at war with Islam.”

How many thousands of people must be murdered by Islam before he stops saying such?

Where did this nation’s balls go?

Australia to License Toy Guns

Facepalm.

ANY ITEM that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could “reasonably be taken to be a weapon”.

The draft act says an imitation is a “reasonable copy” of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury.

“If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed,” said a government source.

[…]

Failure to license an imitation weapon will carry a maximum $4500 fine under the proposals and incorrect storage carries a penalty of $750.

*UPDATED IL Dem Congresswoman Uses Muscle to Silence Constituents

One of the most unbelievable things I’ve seen – aside from the beating of Kenneth Gladney and the “tolerant” liberals who supported and promoted his still-denied justice because he was a black conservative.

Illinois congresswoman Melissa Bean barked at constituents and whenever anyone tried to stop the locomotive of distraction and get the congresswoman to do her job by answering to her constituents, her muscle, according to video and numerous eyewitnesses, sprang into action and intimidated them into silence.

Jim Hoft writes:

Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL) brought Bruno the Bone-Crusher with her to a town hall meeting this weekend to threaten constituents. The meeting was held at Round Lake, Illinois Public library on Thursday August 12. The Obamacare-supporting democrat allowed the thug to roam around the room to intimidate constituents from asking questions.
Where’d she get this guy, from the WWE?

Chicago politics at its finest.

*UPDATED:

The woman who was intimidated in the video will be a guest on today’s show.

Primary Roundup

Last night I monitored results and livestreamed reports for KFTK; recovering today along with finishing up a project I undertook a few months ago.

I’ll have more here after the show but that Prop C, true health care choice, passed by such a landslide marks the second time that the people have told the ruling class in Washington to keep their hands off our health care. That we are free from fines and penalities which may include jail time for noncompliance with government health care is a wonderful thing. That we can pay our own way if we choose is a wonderful thing.

Dems should take warning of how many within their own ranks voted for Prop C. It underscores my point and the polling data shows moderates and independents are fleeing the control of the left:

Independent Voters Favor GOP in 2010 Election Tracking

48% See Government Today As A Threat to Individual Rights – Rasmussen Reports™

In 2010, Conservatives Still Outnumber Moderates, Liberals

Most Say Tea Party Has Better Understanding of Issues than Congress – Rasmussen Reports™

VOTE YES ON PROP C

Today Missouri joins Kansas and Michigan in primary voting.

I’ll be voting YES on Prop C today, the proposition that restores true choice and freedom to Missourians by returning to them the right to choose whether they want to go on government health insurance or whether they want to stay or choose to pay for their own health insurance. It makes honest the President’s words about “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” It saves people from the hefty penalties and fines that come with paying your own way for your own choice; and as the individual mandate doesn’t kick in until 2014 – that’s only if Dems retain power after midterms and it’s not looking so hot – meaning that a lot can happen in that time, including de-funding and a total repeal.

It’s interesting how the MHA and other opposition tries to characterize people paying their own way and not burdening the system as “freeloaders” when they’ve said nothing about the massive cost that comes with adding 16,000 IRS agents to government payrolls (people subsidized!) to “enforce” health control, though they’ve confessed that they don’t have the funds to actually pay to enforce it. The opposition doesn’t want people to have a choice other than government care. They want to penalize people for NOT being dependent upon the government. Their version of equality is to kill all opportunity and have all opportunity run through the government alone. That’s not “equality.” It’s control. It’s what the MHA and opposition to Prop C are advocating.

If you want to make the President an honest man with his promise that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” without being fined for not buying a product from the government, an abuse of the commerce clause, if you want to be able to have a choice other than government care, if you want to be less of a burden on the system (again, remember, individual mandate not applicable until 2014 so that argument holds no water for now) then VOTE YES ON PROP C.
