Klinton Kos Kidz on Strike!!!

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 16, 2008

Please sir, can we have some more?

On Friday, it got to be too much for Alegre, a diarist on the flagship liberal blog DailyKos, who frequently writes in support of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“I’ve put up with the abuse and anger because I’ve always believed in what our online community has tried to accomplish in this world,” Alegre wrote Friday evening. “No more.”

Objecting to the tone of attacks against Mrs. Clinton and her supporters on the blog, the diarist called for a “writers strike.”

“This is a strike – a walkout over unfair writing conditions at DailyKos. It does not mean that if conditions get better I won’t ‘work’’ at DailyKos again,” Alegre wrote, promising to come back only “if we ever get to the point where we’re engaging each other in discussion rather than facing off in shouting matches.”

The blogosphere has never been known for its polite, gentle discourse, and while fiercely partisan, being a Democrat does not make one immune from attacks from the lefty blogs (see Lieberman, Joseph I.). But now, the major internal divisions within the Democratic Party seem to be splitting liberal bloggers. So what happens when the unity enforcement mechanism becomes disjointed?

Alegre’s post attracted a strong reaction, both negative and positive. The comment board was shut down about 5.5 hours after it was posted, with 1258 comments.

One user, Sentient, called for a “permanent succession”:

“Why should this site and Kos profit from the traffic we add to DailyKos, and the sense by outsiders that it represents the netroots as a whole?” the blogger asked, adding later, “But I just don’t see how people come back together on a daily basis after a falling out like this.”

Another poster challenged Alegre’s assertion that “DailyKos is not the site it once was thanks to the abusive nature of certain members of our community.”

The nutroots are getting their just deserts while the rest of us will enjoy a little popcorn while we watch them implode.

THe Clinton Dirty Tricks Operation that released videos of Obama’s pastor has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. Even the few Democrats at church this morning were expressing shock and dismay over Jeremiah Wright’s blasphemous words. They cannot understand why Obama just didn’t leave the church, and find one he agreed with. I hope I gave them something to think about when I told them that perhaps he agreed with the words, or was only at church for show.

If you are interested in helping split the Democrats further apart, you can donate a few bucks to help out Ralph Nader in the hope that he will split the Dem vote like he did in 2000, and Ross Perot did to the GOP in 1992.

I might not be ready to campaign for McCain just yet, but I will do everything I can to disrupt the enemy just on General Principles!

Mitt Romney Wins Michigan! Thank You Krazy Kos Kidz!

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 16, 2008

I am not sure what kind of effect the Daily Kos Endorsement of Mitt Romney had on the primary, but I like to think it had the effect of putting him over the top of McCain:

  1. Mitt Romney……….39%
  2. John McCain……….30%
  3. Mike Huckabee……16%
  4. Ron Paul………………6%
  5. Fred Thompson…….4%
  6. Rudy Giuliani………..3%

Now, if someone else can win South Carolina, even if it is the hated Huckabee, we will see John McCain’s Campaign begin to suffer. The superfast primary schedule will help mitigate the effects of a loss…but repeated losses will have an effect.

I think only Huckabee, McCain, Paul, and Romney campaigned in Michigan, and accordingly, they got the top four slots.

Here are the Democrat results:

  1. Hillary Clinton……56%
  2. Uncommitted……..39%
  3. Dennis Kucinich….4%
  4. Mike Gravel………..1%

The Democrat Michigan primary was a weird affair, with the delegates not going to be seated at the party convention because they moved their primary up against the approval of the Democrat Party Elites. Clinton, Kucinich, and Gravel were the only ones to campaign. The kooks Kucinich and Gravel only managed 5% between them, proving that even the Democrats cannot stomach their insane stands on the issues.

Edwards and Obama urged their supporters to vote uncommitted in the contest, and 39% did so.

So, in a very unlikely turn of events, I wish to thank the Krazy Kos Kidz for whatever help they have lent to conservatism by supporting a candidate more conservative than John McCain!

Dirty Tricks by Liberals in Michigan GOP Primary

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 11, 2008

Yet another good reason to keep party primaries CLOSED to members only:

The liberal Web site Daily Kos, hoping to “make mischief for the Republican Party — and bolster the Democrats’ chances for taking the White House” — is urging Democrats in Michiagn to cross over and vote for Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s state primary.

It’s a classic dirty trick, but perfectly legal. And while Machiavellian political ploys of this sort rarely work, the author’s logic is thus:

A Romney victory in Michigan will keep him in the presidential race. And the more candidates slugging it out among the Republicans, the better for the Democrats.

John McCain is riding high after his resounding win in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday, and Mike Huckabee’s star is still shining following his Iowa win. With South Carolina posing an opportunity for either candidate to continue the momentum, Romney needs to win in his native Michigan to stay competitive.

The former Massachusetts governor is already spending almost all his time there, and he repeatedly says he’s going to win.

Says the Kos, “And we want Romney in, because the more Republican candidates we have fighting it out, trashing each other with negative ads and spending tons of money, the better it is for us. We want Mitt to stay in the race, and to do that, we need him to win in Michigan.”

Krazy Kos Kidz Attack Coverage of Romney Speech!

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 6, 2007

A Kos Kid has already posted, wondering if the coverage of the speech on TV was illegal. I kid you not:

I just turned on the TV and was flipping channels and CNN and MSNBC are carrying Mitt Romney’s speech LIVE.

Yes, they are carrying the speech, apparently in its entirety, LIVE.

Like it’s some kind of “Big Deal” to America. It’s not. It’s just some wanna-be politician trying to b.s. his way into office.

Can someone tell me how this is NOT breaking campaign finance law?

This is a FREE CAMPAIGN COMMERCIAL FOR ROMNEY. A DONATION. FROM MAJOR NEWS CORPORATIONS. TWO OF THEM! (heck, I didn’t even check Foks News, so it’s probably three!)

Imagine if Boeing gave Romney his own 767 to fly around in. THAT’S what this is equivalent to.

Aren’t they now obligated to let, say, Edwards give an entire speech, LIVE?

Or, maybe Obama?

Or, just to be fair, McCain?

See, this is how we should be able to bring these “news” networks down, by busting them on this kind of thing.

To carry a candidate’s speech, in its entirety, LIVE on their networks, is an extremely valuable in-kind donation to that candidate. Just think if he had to buy that airtime.

How much is this worth in dollars? It should be pretty easy to figure out.

Can’t we bust them on this?

CAN YOU IMAGINE THEM DOING THIS FOR A DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE?

Of course you can’t. Because it would NEVER HAPPEN.

Commentary

I’m guessing this person is your standard issue progressive, who has no idea about what is news worthy…and would go through any mental contortion to shut up the opposition. I suggest you read the comments, as there are some of the Kos Kidz with some sense. I couldn’t resist highlighting this idiot, and preserving their “outrage,” which they express oh so well with ALL CAPS.

One last parting shot…notice how this parallels with the actions of the leader of the North Carolina Democrat Party, Jerry Meeks, to the Carolina Stomper video of Elaine Lite dancing with pagans in downtown Asheville…by trying to punish the messenger…not the message.

These people are morally bankrupt, and cannot compete with us in the marketplace of ideas.

The Kos Kidz and Another Lefty Lie Exposed

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 10, 2007

I spend far to much time reading lefty blogs and message board threads. Every once in a while, I run into posts that have a blind spot so large I can walk through…and here is the latest example:

Ya know, I’ve been following what Malkin, Free Republic, Riehl and the like have been doing to Graeme Frost’s family. I can’t post much of anything on it, because any honest, no-holds-barred post I write about it right now would probably get me arrested. It’s one of those little things about living in a civilized society — sometimes you have to know where the boundaries are. And yet, there are continual examples of other people that don’t have any boundaries at all.

Hunter, the Kos Kid, seems unaware that if you tell a lie on the public stage anymore, you will be found out. Hunter seems perfectly willing to allow a lie to be told if the template is correct. That kind of bigoted thinking gets us the Duke Rape Case, The forged documents that got Dan Rather fired, and a kid who is sent to a private school for $20,000 a year (and his sister, too!) who cannot afford health care because his parents are too stupid to shop around, and do basic research any competent high school kid should be able to do.

A Freeper, icwhatudo, did some basic research on the family, and exposed the lie. Now the Left is Livid with Rage:

There aren’t any words to express what I really think about these shambling dermoid cysts dressing themselves up as humans. I certainly hope, in the back corners of my mind, that one or more of them gets accidentally hit by a runaway beer truck, or dissolved in cartoon-strength acid, or slowly eaten by a bear while having to listen to intellectual half-fart Jonah Goldberg read some of his worst goddamn grade-school-level columns aloud the whole time. That’d be a start: we could go from there, anyway, in our efforts to imagine some small measure of karmic retribution for the malevolence these people celebrate every day.

These people think the premise of not doing the worst possible thing to even the smallest political enemy at every possible opportunity would be nothing but an act of weakness. God help them and me both, but I sincerely hope they someday find themselves on the receiving end of the same treatment. They lack all semblances of human empathy: like exceptionally vicious and stupid dogs, punishment in-kind would be the only way they would ever learn. No, that is not true — dogs do learn from kindness. In the entire animal kingdom, only conservatives do not.

It’s long past time for people to stop treating Fox-style, Malkin-style, Limbaugh-style conservatism as merely a “political” phenomenon. It may once have been, but it isn’t now. As of this millennium, it’s nothing but a hate movement with neckties. Protofascism with bright, patriotic logos. Stop treating it with anything but revulsion and disdain. Stop pretending for even a bare moment that they are anything more than thugs.

Read the whole profanity-laced post, and comments, at the Daily Kos.
Here is a snapshot of the page in case they come to their senses and remove it.

I’m surprised a blood vessel does not burst in Hunter’s forehead as he (or she) spews filth from a black hearted hatred of people who have exposed the latest lie from the left. His (or her) anger would be best directed at the buffoons who came up with the idea in the first place, not the people who exposed the lie, unless Hunter agrees that his (or her) cause necessitates the telling of lies in order to make it palatable to the masses. (Reminds me of the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, Militarist Japan, or Islamofacism)

I feel pity for these people who have been filled to the brim (and overflowing) with lies, false philosophies, and hatred for everything that has built our nation into the greatest source of wealth, charity, and freedom the world has ever seen.

I think that conservatism should begin it’s own Long March into the Institutions of Our Society, and rescue these poor people from their fate, and our nation from oblivion.

Who Says Lefties Aren’t Commies?

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 27, 2007

I found this thread on Daily Kos as the Kos Kidz discuss Marx, and how it is wise to discuss his theories without giving proper attribution to him on account of the polarized politics.

He is a great economic & social historian, (8+ / 0-)

from whom much is to be learned; although as an economic theorist — in the sense that he prescribes an idealized system — I downgrade him. That is of course no denigration, since I downgrade most economic theorists of whatever political stripe — excepting only the odd couple of Adam Smith and Keynes.

The problem with espousing Marx, unfortunately, is that it is political poison in today’s polarized atmosphere. He should be studied for the enormous lessons he can teach us — paradoxically, he must at the same time be kept under wraps. My experience is that much of his doctrine would play with great popularity, if only it be not identified as his.

Hillary’s Prayer

Posted by Thunder Pig on August 20, 2007

I heard a portion of Claire Jeffrie, Senior Editor of Mother Jones, on C-SPAN Radio on XM132 during their replay of the Sunday Morning Talk Shows. One of the topics was an article written for Mother Jones called “Hillary’s Prayer,” which concerned Senator Clinton’s membership in a tight-knit group of Congress Critters called “The Fellowship.”

I fired up my computer, went online, and did some quick research. The article is apparently not available online yet, although a Kos Kid was helpful enough to offer a review of the article, [Snapshot] and express their fear that was generated by the article because Joe Lieberman, Tom Delay, and John Ashcroft were all members of the same group at one time or another.

Of course, this is not the first time The Fellowship has been in the news, and one of the Kids was helpful enough to provide a copy of an article in Atlantic Magazine.

Commentary

I get a kick at the Kos Kidz, at how everything is a conspiracy!

Lefties For Censorship: A Preview of a Democrat Administration

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 29, 2007

The Neo-Stalinists of the nutroots have once again displayed a love of Tyranny and Censorship, especially when the views expressed are at odds with their view of reality.
These people are as dangerous a group to American Liberties as has ever walked our shores, and anyone who considers an alliance with them is suspect. They have been shamed from using the term “Liberal” because Bush-41 so effectively ridiculed them from using it as a self descriptor.

What has gotten me on this rant? The latest “movement” by Moveon.org and Daily Kos to scare advertisers away from Bill O’Reilly’s The O’Reilly Factor on Fox.

NEW YORK (AP) — Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.

MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America’s Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.

At least 5,000 people nationwide have signed up to compile logs on who is running commercials on Fox, Gilliam said. The groups want to first concentrate on businesses running local ads, as opposed to national commercials.

”It’s a lot more effective for Sam’s Diner to get calls from 10 people in his town than going to the consumer complaint department of some pharmaceutical company,” Gilliam said.

Some of the videos produced by Gilliam’s company compile statements made by Fox anchors and guests that the activists consider misleading, such as those that question global warming.


And, true to form, they are lying already…trying to take credit for Lowe’s pulling adverts from O’Reilly’s show, when they pulled their adverts back in February over a different matter altogether.

One website even has a list of O’Reilly Advertisers to make it easy for the lefty brownshirts to find their targets. I suggest you use the list to praise the advertisers.

These nuts even have a petition asking Home Depot to pull adverts from Fox!

The Left knows their nutty ideas will not survive in the marketplace of ideas, so they are left with no other choice but to try to shut up their opposition.

I consider Fox as the official channel for RINOs, and actually harmful to the conservative movement. Can you imagine the rage that would be expressed if a real conservative news channel made it on the air? Talk about foaming at the mouth!!!

Let’s see…
CNN=Liberal
ABC=Liberal
NBC=Liberal
CBS=Progressive
MSNBC=Progressive
Fox News=RINO

I guess there might be some bias there, eh?

Oh, and the whole point of my title…can you imagine the kind of damage a Lefty President would do to our Liberties and Freedom of Speech?
