Here is the local version on the right, a GOP wannabe in waiting from Jackson County and good buddy to Steven Palazzo.
Here is the Wisconsin version. At least our guy is a happy drunk.
Naturally Jon Stewart had a take on this entire Scott Walker is an idiot saga and this is what he said last night about Gov Walker being punked by a left wing blogger from Buffalo. Score one for the blogger because Walker is little more than a genuflecting David Koch knob shiner who sold the people in Wisconsin out to the highest big business bidder.
In recent months, as rhetoric grew red-hot over healthcare reform and immigration, the wounded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords had been the target of numerous death threats. Her local office in Tucson had been vandalized and the corner across the street had become a central location for protests. Most recently, a Sarah Palin graphic depicted her district in the crosshairs of a gun.
Politicians in Arizona used the immigration debate to spread falsehoods about mass killings in the desert near the border, sparking hysteria in the streets, portraying a state under siege by immigrants.
The discourse quickly turned venomous. The dangerous rumors were being perpetuated on Internet blogs and by the noisy back-and-forth bickering on cable news networks that covered the congressional campaigns.
As we see now, this practice of feeding on fear and spreading hate is dangerously irresponsible and potentially deadly, and yet, in today’s America it seems there is no escaping it.
Sure enough some dumb ass red neck down south has decided to burn some Muslims out. Meantime Rupert Murdock, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck laugh all the way to the bank. And to think these hypocrites actually invoke the name of the Christian Almighty in their demagogic public speaking.
One person suffering the end result of this jackassery is one too many.
This isn’t too far from the white sheet days folks. Maybe one day sanity will return.
Folks, Glenn Beck is rapidly becoming the gift that keeps on giving as he and his sponsors are subjected to the scrutiny that accompanies his paranoid delusions that modern days nazis are coming to get him. You got to give the man his due though as he has amassed an impressive audience of marks for his sponsors to prey upon in this case gold coin manufacturer Goldline International, Inc.
A New York congressman says a California gold-dealing company that advertises heavily on conservative talk shows is overcharging its customers and preying on their fears about inflation.
Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner released a report Tuesday saying that Goldline International Inc. “rips off consumers, uses misleading and possibly illegal sales tactics, and deliberately manipulates public fears of an impending government takeover.”
