“It seems unjust to me that someone would be charged when they were protecting their family,” state Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, said after the hearing. “I’m at a loss to understand why the U.S. government is pursuing this in the manner they are.”
(HT: The Spokesman Review)
Let me break this down for Representative Keough. I’ll be blunt here, but without any disrespect intended. Jeremy M. Hill, a US Citizen, from Northern Idaho, shot and killed a female grizzly bear which had entered his backyard while two of his children were playing. This forced the US Government to choose whether it valued the grizzly bear more or two children of a US citizen, who happened to live in a Conservative, rural county.
So the OR geek runs the numbers, and determines there’s about a p=0.75 that Mr. Hill voted against Barack Obama. At that point the current USG believes $50,000 and 1 year of prison for shooting an endangered species is condign punishment for not being liberal. It doesn’t even begin to address the loss of the precious grizzly bear. Mr. Hill is therefore having the book thrown at him. The grizzly, as far as Liberal Democrats are concerned, was supposed to eat Mr. Hill’s kids. Predators do keep the balance.
At this point you have to be wondering. Who sprinkled the PCP in Repair_Man_Jack’s Cheerios? The government doesn’t actually hate people like Mr. Hill. Mr. Hill can hold a job. He produces revenue. They may not respect him, but they can fill a whole bunch of EBT Cards by milking the poor, foolish herd of tax-paying bovines.
But no; you would be wrong. Let me explain to you what the Left under Barack Obama thinks of rural, Conservatives as human beings. We give you the rational and open-minded Congressman Andre Carson. He offers us a bright and shining example of the typical American Liberal.
Rep. Andre Carson, a Democrat from Indiana who serves as the CBC’s chief vote counter, said at a CBC event in Miami that some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.” Carson also said the tea party is stopping change in Congress, likening it to “the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow.”
But that’s just one idiot, Repair_Man, you can’t judge all liberals by the words of Congressman Carson. He is uniquely qualified to represent citizens from the Lower Quartile in intellect and achievement in Congress. He, like no other member of Congress since Senator Earnest Hollings retired, can empathize with what it is like to be stupid on a daily basis.
Yes, that is just one idiot. However, I don’t have to go any further than my daily list of blog-reads to get you several more. Instapundit links me to the latest smear being waged against GOP Candidate Michele Bachmann.
Bachmann attended a Christian Musical festival in Iowa on a rainy day in August. During the festival, Bachmann gave a speech. She made a fairly lame and inoffensive attempt at humor. “Who likes wet people?” She inquired of the crowd. The left-wing smear machine then launched into overdrive.
An edited video immediately surfaced that made it appear that Congresswoman Bachmann asked “Who likes white people?” This travesty was quickly set straight when an unedited video from the festival came into the public domain. Yet, even as the truth put on its boots, Michelle Castillo of the always fake, but accurate NBC News wasted no time in spreading the dishonesty.
Stacy McCain describes the utter chicanery below.
Castillo writes: Everything that comes out of Michele Bachmann’s mouth is gold. A new video has her asking a crowd of people, “Who likes white people?” It doesn’t make any sense, so many explanations are surfacing from “White People Soul Power” being the band that played before, to the fact it was raining and Bachmann is asking about “wet” people.
My first thought was to search the actual concert manifest for White People Soul Power. Here is the Main Stage performer list. Here is 99.5FM The Pulse Rock Stage performance manifest. The Tent Stage featured the following artists. The Truth Talk Stage featured mostly revival preaching, rather than musical acts.
Help me out here. I can’t seem to find where The White People Soul Power Band ever performed. Does anyone have a manifest for the Crazed White Racist Stage? Oh, that’s right, apparently there wasn’t one. I’m sure glad that these baseless and malicious accusations weren’t leveled against anyone nice and sensitive like Maxine Waters.
And that “Go to Hell” sentiment voiced by Congresswoman Waters is not just a liberal taking point. It’s not just posturing. Just recently, the United States Government had a choice to make. A man in Northern Idaho saw two of his children being menaced by a grizzly bear in his own backyard. He grabbed a gun and shot the bear. I have no knowledge whether Mr. Jeremy Hill has attended a Tea Party rally or convention. One thing I can say for sure is that the liberals who currently run Washington, DC are doing everything in their power to make sure this man’s life turns into a living hell.
