the Morning Briefing every morning at no charge.
The ‘One Nation’ rally happened this weekend. The majority of the crowd was bussed in by union groups and other leftwing groups. Compare that to tea party activists, the majority of whom pooled their money to go to DC for the 8/28 rally.A large segment of the crowd was paid to be there. Unions pay. Tea party groups and Glenn Beck did not on 8/28.Nonetheless, the crowd was sparse — so sparse that even the Associated Press was compelled to take note of it.Of those who were there though, they were unapologetically of the left. Assorted communists, socialists, union goons, and Democrats. But I repeat myself.The Communist Party USA openly bragged about its effort to turn out the crowd in defense of its darling socialist Barack Obama. The left is finally being honest. They are embracing their socialist/communist identity.They even held up signs and banners proclaiming the return of the Reds.Please click here for the rest of the post.
They came, they preached Marx, they trashed D.C., disrespected WWII vets (yes, those are SEIU signs), attacked Tea Parties as ‘insidious’ and ‘villainous,’ and they showed the rest of America what vile contempt they have for the Land of the Free. By all accounts, it was a success. For they were finally able to take their masks off—how liberating.From the Left’s point of view, they are now completely, unabashedly out in the open. There’s no more hiding behind bromides and phony feel-good names, the Left has now unmasked itself. Socialists, Communists, labor unions, liberals, progressives and other assorted riff-raff…why, they are all, undisputedly, one big, incestuously happy family now. Congratulations!And, for them, there is no going back into the closet, no turning back: We’re socialists and we’re proud.Please click here for the rest of the post.

For those who don’t know – and come, I will conceal nothing from you; until five minutes ago, this included me – Ms. Tucker was a drummer for the Velvet Underground, which for a certain segment of the population makes her instantly cooler than squeezable bacon. Well, in April of 2009 a ‘Maureen Tucker’ showed up at a Georgia Tea Party.Please click here for the rest of the post.
“Good God. It’s like running ads for the Holocaust.”That was one of my colleagues’ reaction when he saw this “No Pressure” video put out by British environmentalists, which is… hideous. As in, ‘they started by blowing up two children in a crowded classroom for not wanting to bike to school’ hideous. As in, ‘they splattered the other children with blood and viscera’ hideous. As in, ‘the Greenies themselves are reportedly hunting down and erasing all examples of this video on Youtube’ hideous.What is this all about? Environmentalists in Britain have a new ad campaign out to encourage people to fight global warming, etc. The message of the ad campaign — and this is no exaggeration and you can see it for yourself — is to kill those men, women, and children who refuse to go along with the green agenda.Please click here for the rest of the post.
