The Democrat-Communist Coalition 2

rcp-flagVia Pajamas Media, here’s another example of the Democratic Party base openly cavorting with communist groups.

And no, this isn’t guilt by association, it is actual association.

We noted a similar coalition of Democrats and communists back in 2006. This sort of thing is nothing new, the DeMSM has been ignoring these associations for a long, long time. But of course, if there’s one guy in a sea of thousands at a Tea Party rally with an unfortunate sign, DeMSM cameras are rolling.

Governor says he’s a Christian, media, activists outraged

Occasionally, some public figure will say something perfectly in line with traditional Christianity, and the forces of “tolerance” in America, in the media, professional grievance groups, bloggers, etc, will react in horror and outrage. By so doing, they merely display their own ignorance and prejudice.

The latest example, from the AP, via Yahoo News:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley told a church crowd just moments into his new administration that those who have not accepted Jesus as their savior are not his brothers and sisters, shocking some critics who questioned Tuesday whether he can be fair to non-Christians.

“Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother,” Bentley said Monday, his inauguration day, according to The Birmingham News.

Christians routinely refer to each other as brothers and sisters. That’s essentially all Governor Bentley said, it’s basically a tautology. Any journalist really should have some basic understanding of the subject he’s covering before writing an article on that subject. What’s offensive is for these crackpots to attack the governor simply for expressing his faith. There’s nothing at all offensive about any American expressing his faith, or wishing for others to join his faith.

But the reaction from advocates of “diversity” and “tolerance” was swift. From ABC News:

“We live in a country that is hugely diverse,” said David Silverman, president of American Atheists, the country’s oldest atheist civil rights group. “The governor basically said: ‘If you’re not like me, you’re second class.’ This is a man puts the Bible above the Constitution and his preacher above the president. His words are disgusting and bigoted and reinforce Alabama’s reputation for being backward and bigoted.”

The governor said no such thing. Mr. Silverman is merely projecting his own bigotry. If you object to Christians stating the basic tenets of their faith in public, then you do not in fact favor diversity or tolerance. And calling the group a “civil rights group” while they’re objecting to an American exercising his First Amendment free exercise rights was an especially nice touch.

Similarly, an activist with the Anti-Defamation League weighed in with some defamation:

A spokesman for the Anti Defamation League said the governor’s comments were “stunning” and “distressing” and were tantamount to proselytizing.

“It is stunning to me that he’d make those remarks. It’s distressing because of the suggestion that he feels that people who aren’t Christian are not entitled to love and respect,” said Bill Nigut, the ADL’s regional director.

“On the day that he is sworn in as governor, he’s sending a statement to the public saying if you’re not Christian you can’t be with me. From our point of view that is proselytizing for Christianity and coming very close to a violation of the First Amendment.”

But Governor Bentley didn’t say anything to suggest that non-Christians aren’t entitled to love or respect. Again, Mr. Nigut is projecting his own prejudice onto the governor. Being pro- your own group in no sense suggests hostility to other groups. Would Mr. Nigut accept the premise that if he said he was a proud Jew or expressed a special affinity for fellow Jews, that was anti-Christian, or anti-Muslim, or anti-anything? The idea is absurd, as is the ridiculous and somewhat Orwellian notion that an exercise of free expression violates the First Amendment.

Democrat Jerry Brown to attend hate group fundraiser tonight

So Jodie Evans, one of the founders of anti-American hate group Code Pink, who told a Gold Star mom that her son deserved to die in Iraq, is hosting a fundraiser for Jerry Brown, Democratic Party candidate for governor of California.

It’s amazing the double standards Democrats/liberals seem to get away with. (See, for example, Obama, Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright).

Just try to imagine if Meg Whitman, or any other Republican candidate, were to attend a fundraiser hosted by Fred Phelps of the “Westboro Baptist Church” (he’s a Democrat, but leave that aside for the sake of argument). Her political career would end that day. Yet Jerry Brown will remain a viable candidate.

Partisan left-wing organization claims Republicans fail to support left-wing agenda

So the partisan Democrat, left-wing NAACP doesn’t like Republicans who oppose their left-wing agenda? And this is news?

Of course, calling every liberal political position “civil rights” doesn’t make it so.

“Progressive” tolerance on full display

Here’s a great video of liberals being their typical tolerant and inclusive selves, via The Jawa Report (Warning: these are liberals – contains much uncivilized behavior and vulgarity not suitable for minors):

Ahhh, Barack Obama – bringing Americans together even before the inevitable inauguration on November 5th.

When peace activists attack

Good thing they’re peace activists, or the violence might have been much worse:

Protesters attacked members of the Connecticut delegation near the site of the Republican National Convention Monday in a demonstration where more than a dozen people were arrested by police using pepper spray amid window-smashing, bottle-throwing and tire-slashing.

It was a violent counterpoint to an otherwise peaceful anti-war march not far from the Xcel Energy Center convention site.

….

Police estimates of the crowd shifted several times during the event, ranging from 2,000 to 10,000.

They only arrested a dozen out of thousands of people? The Evil Bu$hCo Gestapo isn’t implementing the fascist police state very effectively, are they?

Joe Biden – Chickenhawk Warmonger…

… merely applying the standard the left applies to Vice President Cheney. The AP reports on Joe Biden’s evasion of the draft during the Vietnam war:

Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager.

….

“As a result of a physical exam on April 5, 1968, Joe Biden was classified 1-Y and disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager,” said David Wade, a campaign spokesman.

In “Promises to Keep,” a memoir that was published last year and became an instant best-seller after he was tapped as Obama’s running mate, Biden never mentions his asthma, recounting an active childhood, work as a lifeguard and football exploits in high school.

We’re sure all the kook-left bloggers who went after Cheney because he avoided the draft will show equal outrage at Biden, who incidentally voted for the war in Iraq, since we learned in 2004 how vitally important Vietnam service is to Democratic “anti-war” activists.

Obama: All those people think alike

Barack Obama, in a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus (talk about playing the race card), discussing reaching out to primary supporters of Hillary Clinton:

“If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”

Really? Does Obama really believe all women think alike on every issue?

All women want to ignore the success of the surge and prefer surrender and defeat in Iraq?

All women support abortion on demand at any time for any reason?

All women support more socialist economic policies, massive tax increases on their families, and more draconian regulation of their lives and businesses?

All women support a ban on increased U.S. energy production and confiscation of private energy company profits, which will drive up the price they pay for gasoline and other energy products?

All women support trapping their kids in failing public schools?

All women support the Democrats’ efforts to make it harder to conduct surveillance of foreign terrorist communications?

All women support the appointment of activist judges who will impose radical cultural changes on Americans without regard to the democratically expressed will of the people or the clear written text of the Constitution?

We are not a woman, but if we were, we’d find the senator’s rank stereotyping offensive.

Barack Obama’s church accuses media of “character assassination”…

…and by implication accuses Barack Obama of “character assassination” as well. After all, Obama has now also condemned the hateful statements of his pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Senator Obama called Wright’s comments “inflammatory and appalling” (ironically on left-wing hate site The Huffington Post).

From Politico.com:

The Chicago church attended by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) issued a statement Sunday contending that coverage of his pastor’s inflammatory remarks amounted to character assassination and “an attack on … the history of the African American church.”

….

The statement begins: “Nearly three weeks before the 40th commemorative anniversary of the murder of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.’s character is being assassinated in the public sphere because he has preached a social gospel on behalf of oppressed women, children and men in America and around the globe.”

This statement is sickening, a diversion and a lie. The “African American Church” is not being attacked, no one is being attacked for “preaching the social gospel…” and Rev. Wright’s character is certainly not being assassinated. The Rev. Wright’s own bigoted and hateful words are being criticized and condemned because they fully deserved to be condemned. And invoking the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. is pretty despicable as well. This sort of defensive outburst from his church certainly won’t help Senator Obama either. It also demonstrates that the problem at the church is not limited to one man.

United Nations condemns Israel for self defense

From the AP (via Yahoo News):

The U.N. Security Council issued a media statement early Sunday condemning the escalation of fighting in southern Israel and Gaza and urging Israelis and Palestinians “to immediately cease all acts of violence.”

So after the Palestinians rain down thousands of missiles into Israeli neighborhoods month after month, as soon as the Israelis take any action in self defense the UN finally gets interested in a non-judgmental call for an end to “all acts of violence”. This is typical and unsurprising from the UN, an institution for which becoming merely useless would be a step up.

The statement, though not a formal resolution, also stressed that the violence “must not be allowed to deter the political process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority aimed at establishing two states – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in peace and security.”

But this is based on a basic untruth. The Palestinians, or at least certainly their “government”, have shown no sign that their aim is to establish two states. They still express the idea that they want one state, “Palestine”, after destroying Israel. And it cannot really now be claimed that the “government” of “Palestine” does not represent the views of the Palestinian people, because they elected two terrorist organizations, Fatah and Hamas, to head their “government”.

Such resolutions have failed repeatedly in the past because of U.S. and European objections that they are not balanced in their condemnation “” and U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad told reporters as he left the meeting that “it’s not a balanced resolution, certainly.”

But what is needed is not “balance”, but acknowledgment that there is a right and a wrong here: the Palestinians are the terrorist aggressors, and the Israelis are trying to defend themselves. We didn’t demand a “balanced condemnation” of the U.S. and al Qaeda after 9/11. There should be no promises of recognition of a state of Palestine until they fully renounce terrorism and recognize the right of Israel to exist.
