Quotes of the day

posted at 11:00 pm on March 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

“After reading and further researching, we were amazed that Fonda, Steinem and Morgan failed to condemn Maher for his hate speech against conservative and liberal women alike. In their piece, they write that their call to action ‘isn’t political.’ Giving them the benefit of doubt, we thought, they were perhaps unaware of Maher’s history of misogyny. But we were wrong.

“Not only have these women not condemned Maher’s vile and violent language, they’ve legitimized it. Both Fonda and Steinem have been guests on Maher’s show, both failing to call him to task for his actions. Sadly, they are not alone…

“While we respect all women who stand up for their beliefs, we reject the hypocrisy that these ‘feminist icons’ try to slip past us. When will they put principle over politics and have the courage to condemn Maher’s misogyny? We applaud Wasserman Schultz for rejecting this sort of language as not ‘funny.’ We agree with President Obama that remarks such as these have ‘no place in the public discourse.’ We ask others including Sen. Chuck Schumer and Obama super PAC co-founder Bill Burton to reject Maher’s donation of $1 million to support the president’s re-election.”

***

“No longer is it good enough to disagree with conservatives. They must be fired from their jobs, separated from their advertisers, booted from the airwaves, buried under a prehistoric rock. The tactics attributed to Joe McCarthy tied to the polemical rigor associated with Jenny McCarthy…

“There are also honorable exceptions to the liberal purges. ‘As we all know, Limbaugh’s First Amendment rights aren’t involved here — freedom of speech means freedom from interference by the government,’ writes the veteran columnist Michael Kinsley, referring only to the boycotts. ‘But the spirit of the First Amendment, which is that suppressing speech is bad, still applies.’

“Networks can hire who they want. Advertisers can spend their money as they choose. But there is something unsavory about these organized boycotts and politically motivated pressure tactics. There is something much worse about the government deciding which speech is in the public interest.”

***

“The three then exhibit a staggering lack of self-awareness by claiming that Rush Limbaugh seeks to ‘dehumanize’ people. Um. Did Gloria Steinem forget that she called housewives ‘dependent creatures who are still children’ and ‘parasites’? That is the Left’s standard operating procedure. That is what they do, always, and especially with regard to women. This has been proven over and over again and only the willfully ignorant can’t see it. This is followed by the pièce de résistance of the op-ed — they equate Rush with Josef Goebbels. No, for reals. While fascistically demanding that The State’s FCC shut down Rush Limbaugh. While seeking to silence those with whom they disagree – using hysterical lies and propagandist rhetoric – they Godwin themselves with Goebbels. Irony is lost on these geniuses.

“They ended with the most hilarious line of all when they claimed ‘this is not political’. Of course it is. Everything they do is political. Perhaps Robin Morgan forgot that she said ‘I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.’ She also said ‘Kill your fathers, not your mothers’ – yeah, no ‘issues’ there. And Feminism itself is not about women at all; it’s about serving a political ideology and agenda always. What they fail to realize, being too busy beclowning themselves constantly, is that they are subjugators of women. They are being used – willingly, no less – to help oppress and infantilize women, making them subservient to The State and Big Daddy Government.”

***

“The liberal instinct to attack conservative voices on the radio rather than promote liberal alternatives mirrors the left’s approach to the economy in general. The president of the United States and his apologists insist on raising taxes for the rich as a top priority without explaining how those additional burdens on the most productive are supposed to help the poor and the working class in their struggles. Since Obama acceded to the nation’s highest office, the percentage of Americans in dire poverty has sharply increased, and the unemployment rate for blacks remains stuck at 14.1 percent – nearly twice that for whites (7.3 percent). Democrats make no real attempt to show that raising tax rates on the prosperous will change this situation for the better (especially since higher rates generally produce more tax avoidance, not more revenue), but they do suggest that punishing the rich might at least make the downtrodden feel less oppressed.

“The logic seems to suggest that since we’re suffering at the moment then at least we can make you suffer too; we may not be able to help the poor but we can certainly hurt the rich.

“This reflects the similarly resentful attitude toward powerful voices in radio. There, the left argues that since we can’t get our own messages out to millions of enthusiastic fans, then the least we can do is to stop Limbaugh and colleagues from imparting their dangerous messages to an immense and eager audience. At this point, the critics of the conservative talk medium seem far more concerned with shutting up right-wing voices than with raising left-wing voices as a constructive alternative.”

***

“Rather than swallow their ideological pride for a moment, too many liberals, including more than a few leading feminists, have dug in like the Vatican and refused to acknowledge that their side too can be wrong or unfair. Or, as in the case of Maher, who just gave $1 million to a super PAC backing President Obama, as boorish as Limbaugh…

“We in the mainstream media too rarely point out that double standard, but Allred’s retro-hypocrisy – which is about the First Amendment — is too hard to ignore. The obscure Florida defamation code she wants prosecutors to use on Limbaugh is one of those musty statutes that sit forgotten in every state’s penal attic. But to demand in the year 2012 that we criminally prosecute anyone for this kind of speech is disturbing, especially so to correspondents like me who have been chronicling the recent comeback of criminal defamation laws in Latin America. Limbaugh apologized for slandering Fluke; now Allred should apologize for promoting the legal philosophy of Hugo Chávez.”

I don’t think they need Soros for that. Muslims will be Muslims: when they have the power, they kill.

Igor R. on March 13, 2012 at 12:50 AM

I agree and in this age of social media ,
muslims need suppression of news about their deeds , by the media,
and that’s where Soros comes in .
Just look at the lean stream media, how comfortable they are not even mentioning the burning of Churches and Christians being killed in Africa by muslims , in Ivory Coast, Egypt, Uganda , Nigeria , Kenya etc .
But a Kony 2012…that is news

burrata on March 13, 2012 at 12:59 AM

It’s not their job. Their job is to obfuscate, misdirect, change the conversation any way possible.
l4l and DBear are two examples. Neither are particularly bright or intuitive. The online seminars the left puts out to infiltrate are much like the unions paying protesters. 10 cents per post, maybe.

Lanceman on March 13, 2012 at 12:54 AM

You really have made Lib4Life disappear! She hasn’t been back since you asked about her FB page! Magic! Now, what about that DBear? He’s annoying, too. Can you make him disappear? ;-D

There are lots of you guys (Bmore, Flora Duh, etc.) who actually add a lot to the conversation. And the trolls are self-immolating one-by-one for the most part, anyway. My guess is that the moderators tolerate people like lib4life because they provoke a lot of reply comments, as long as they don’t go too wacky. If we all agreed all the time it would turn into an echo chamber around here, I suppose.

He likes you guys! ;-) Otherwise it would have been the silent and stealthy chop! chop!

cynccook on March 13, 2012 at 1:25 AM

I feel bad and stupid.

OT: Are you prepared to change decades in 6 months?
I’ve heard that the…transition is more difficult for guys?

annoyinglittletwerp on March 13, 2012 at 1:25 AM

I’m prepared to change Presidents in 6 months.

You think Maher & co. are bad now, wait until obaka loses.

I had a post deleted awhile back. While I never got a warning in writing-I took the deletion itself as a ‘hint’. I got it..

I’ve walked the line a few times. I’ve come in half-loaded and some troll will irritate the crap outta me. Then I wake up in the morning thinking “Oh crap. I hope I didn’t get banned.”

JPeterman on March 13, 2012 at 1:27 AM

Don’t. Though I must confess the first time I had a comment deleted I was pissed. No one even clued me in as to why. Allah at least gave you and Lanceman a heads up.

Bmore on March 13, 2012 at 1:29 AM

JPeterman on March 13, 2012 at 1:27 AM

What? You shouldn’t! I’m sure that Allah just wants people to feel safe coming here to post — even if what they post is worthless drivel! Believe me, if he thought is was that bad, he would have made that very clear.

I was quoting my late father…and well let’s just say that my dad didn’t hold leftist Jews-he was a ‘right’ Jew-in very high esteem.

I got it once during the Ted Kennedy funeral thread. Ace would’a left it but Althouse, like AP did, would have deleted it.

Lanceman on March 13, 2012 at 1:29 AM

That was honestly the most cordial notice that I’ve ever seen Allah give someone. Usually he just says “Knock it off!” He even used the word “please!”

Ahhhh….so no quarter given for the words of dear and departed fathers? That doesn’t seem right!

cynccook on March 13, 2012 at 1:34 AM

Sometimes if you hunt, you get deletions. Sometimes you get email warnings. Ed and Allah know who’s who……… I hope.

Bmore on March 13, 2012 at 1:34 AM

Heck AP probably knows how much she annoys us daily, so he probably laughed it off.
I’m sure L4L emailed him to.

Check it. Report back. You’re still here.

Lanceman on March 13, 2012 at 1:34 AM

You shouldn’t be. Allah is a good guy and if he were ticked off, he would have said something to indicate that when he popped in here. He has to ride the line, too, you know. The trolls who sweep through (both registered and unregistered) are always looking for something to use against this site. It’s influential — and that makes it a target.

There are less than 300 active commenters here. Not hard to keep track. By active I mean check in once a week and leave more than one comment.
Prolly close to 10,000 live accounts out there.
