The Left’s Evolution of Tolerance
We’re so lucky we live in such a tolerant, enlightened society. There are backward parts of the world where women are stoned to death for wearing the wrong kind of dress. There are some backwaters stuck in the Middle Ages where gays are publicly hanged. These actions are to punish the “perpetrators” for their deeds. But another purpose is to set an example to others: | Read More »
Shut Up and Be Tolerant, Redneck!
“Shut up and be tolerant, redneck” they screamed. As you may have heard, Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame has been suspended. And what did Phil do or say that offended to get booted from TV? He quoted from the Bible. Specifically, he said in an interview with GQ “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong,” he says. “Sin becomes fine.” What, in your mind, | Read More »
Obamacare Is The Law. Of Course Harry Reid Considers His Buddies Exempt.
The reason powerful Leftists like Harry Reid get into politics is not to share the benefice of their enlightened and deeply philosophical ideology. Harry Reid got into politics to inflict his liberalism on the idiot plebes the way a rapist inflicts himself upon his victim. The man could care less whether the laws he passes help you little people. He sees no reason to hold himself accountable under those laws. The laws, you see, are for lesser beings, not Nietzschean Uber-Tools like Senator Harry Reid.
Now how could RMJ say such deprecating things about caring public servants like Senator Harry Reid? Why would he behave so badly and be such a vile, iniquitous hypocrite? In response to the first question, I’m saying bad things about a hateful and obnoxious man because Harry Reid just exempted his scumbag, poli-sci hack staff from Obamacare. Why, you ask? He does it for the same reason Ghengis Kahn inseminated women all over Asia. He can.

Gosnell & Newtown: mirror-image tragedies show media hypocrisy
This is a tale of two tragedies, but three stories. 1. Sandy Hook in Newtown, CT The first is when a madman went on a rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, and killed 20 children. It was shocking, and within two days, President Obama was politicizing it, using the children’s deaths to call for gun control. A nation was horrified, battered with | Read More »

Liberal hypocrisy: Shoot first, ask questions later
It’s been about two weeks since the death of Trayvon Martin broke into a national news story. From the outset, liberals and minorities have screamed for “justice for Trayvon,” resulting just this week in George Zimmerman being charged with murder for the death. The narrative has been that Zimmerman did racial profiling, was prejudiced against blacks, shot first and asked questions later. Martin had no | Read More »
Hypocrisy: (noun) From the Greek term for “Senate Democrats”
Today, President Obama appointed Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) while the Senate was in pro forma session. The CFPB is an unaccountable bureaucratic nightmare that was birthed from the Dodd-Frank bill, and Republicans are rightfully criticizing this latest abuse of power by the Obama Administration.
The criticism of this appointment is warranted for several reasons…

Support the Troops with a Parade
For years during the long Iraq war, we heard from liberals that they support the troops. It was just the war they didn’t support. But darn it, don’t you even think about questioning their patriotism. Finally, after nine years of deployment, the last of our troops finally left Iraq last week. Yet, the Obama administration had planned no parade to welcome home our brave soldiers, | Read More »
Ed Schultz Calls Marco Rubio “Stupid” – Seriously?!
Just in case there was any doubt that liberal and conservative brains are different, here comes MSNBC’s Ed Schultz to remind you. As you may have heard, my Senator, Marco Rubio, gave an incredibly moving speech at the Reagan Library about a week and a half ago. (If you haven’t seen it yet, click here.) Normal people and journalists watched that speech and felt that it | Read More »
While John Kerry Wants you to Pay Higher Taxes, he Finds a Way to Avoid Paying $500,000……in Taxes!
I remember the 2004 election like it was the day before yesterday (with the 2008 election being yesterday). Remember how John Kerry and his liberal supporters were unhinged at the jaw about the Bush’s “tax cuts for the wealthy?” That’s an argument we’ll here for many years now, and the GOP will long be labeled as the “rich person’s party,” but this might interest those | Read More »
Dems Want Idealogue on Supreme Court? I’m Shocked!
From Politico via the Mark Levin Show 4/13/10 regarding the retirement of Associate Justice John Paul Stevens: Democratic senators are urging President Barack Obama to abandon any hope of winning broad Republican support for his upcoming Supreme Court pick — and to nominate, instead, a dominant liberal voice who will counteract the current conservative majority. Top Democrats say the partisan fights over health care reform, | Read More »
Compassionate Healthcare Strikes Again: The Least of These
Sky News gives an account of yet another state-run healthcare nightmare. Neglect of an elderly pneumonia patient lead to death from a “non-life threatening” condition, according to his daughter; besides not monitoring his condition, the nurses refused to give him water since he had “knocked over a cup” during his stay. The British NHS hospital apologized for this incident, saying “The trust believes that Mr | Read More »
The Curtain Hangs in Tatters.
In the past few months, we here on RedState and other diverse locations on the internet have made references to pulling back the curtain as a reference to the magician in the mythical land of Oz. The curtain hangs in tatters, not just pulled back and those working behind it would like nothing more than to have us turn our backs so they can mend | Read More »
Congressional Democrats to AMA: Go Pound Sand
Here’s a completely unsurprising and predictable story. Do you remember how many conservatives spent months trying to figure out why the leadership of the American Medical Association signed the nation’s doctors up in support of Obamacare? Many conservatives argued that the AMA was being shortsighted – that Congressional Democrats would ultimately betray the AMA, despite the powerful group’s consistent advocacy of the president’s health care | Read More »
Democrats Speak Against Corporate Welfare, Vote to Continue TARP Bailouts
Gee, in the week that Democrats suddenly decided that they needed to rebrand themselves as populist crusaders, you’d think that a massive vote in favor of more corporate bailouts would attract some attention: The Senate Thursday killed a Republican attempt to shut down the Wall Street bailout program. The defeated proposal would have barred the Treasury Department from releasing any funds remaining from the $700 | Read More »
DCCC Chair VanHollen: We Might Pass Health Care With Reconciliation
Is this another bone being tossed to the liberals, or is VanHollen signaling a potential change in strategy? Even if Democrats lose the special election to pick a new Massachusetts senator Tuesday, Congress may still pass health-care overhaul through a process called reconciliation, a top House Democrat said. That procedure requires 51 votes rather than the 60 needed to prevent Republicans from blocking votes on | Read More »
