Quotes of the day

“[F]or all the chanting about how ‘the people, united, will never be divided,’ this turnout was small, and suffering from an enthusiasm gap compared the conservative populists who crowded the mall a month ago for Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ Rally. Yes, the music was better and the crowd more diverse, but this rally provided plenty of evidence the Wingnuts on the loony left are alive and well

“A pregame rally south of the Washington Monument featured drum circles and paper mache puppets. President Obama was called an ‘imperialist president’ who was insensitive to the ‘African community’ and ‘the 2.5 million people in concentration camps called prisons.’…

“The curious and relatively recent migration of anti-Semitism to the left was evident in signs that read ‘End All U.S. Aid to the Racist State of Israel’ and ‘Fund Jobs, Not Israel.’…

“While the DJ played ‘Everyday People’ and high school students step-danced on the stage at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial, I saw a red flag waving above the crowd, crowned by a gold hammer and sickle. I tracked down the young man holding it, an 18-year old named Adrian, a self-described Marxist-Leninist from Buffalo, who seemed to be stoned. I asked him what reaction he’d been getting to the flag. ‘People love it—I’m getting a very positive reaction,’ he said.”

Belafonte is twisted… why is he even speaking? These people are so damned clueless. Schultz says do it for the kids? Those same kids that have to pay for the trillions Obama is spending? Schultz called it a great turnout? Maybe for his favorite buffet, but not for a political rally.

Yet the left somehow thinks THEY are in the know, that THEY are the ones with the correct agenda. America could be screwed if we dont get out and vote in November.

The old strategy of “First create a problem, and then blame it on the opposition.” is still in full swing.

A whole lot of villages, were missing their idiots.

Liberalism in 2010= union thugs, socialists, communists who hate corporations who have changed the lives of millions and brought advanced technology and new innovations and products, but LOVE the demand of a union job for all, paying so much money to sometimes unskilled workers that businesses are forced to fire rather than pay the outrageous salaries and benefits.

Insanity.
