Stupid Liberal Quote of the Day- July 7th Edition

    This quote was actually made on July 4th by American film director and producer, Oliver Stone while at a film festival in the Czech Republic. Never one to shy away from controversial political topics and comments, Stone went a little overboard on the 237th anniversary of our Nation’s independence from tyrannical colonial rule. This is the quote to a press conference of largely European journalists, | Read More »

    Hugo Chavez Esta Muerta

    Time Magazine amazes me this morning. It prints one of the most intelligent and thoughtful descriptions of who and what Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez was during his brief, frightening and frenetic life.

    Chávez called himself a “21st century socialist.” In reality he was a throwback to the dogmatic and authoritarian 20th century socialism of Castro, Cuba’s former dictator, and to the 19th century caudillo tradition of Chávez’s demigod, South American independence hero Simón Bolívar. Chávez hoped that being democratically elected would obscure the fact that he didn’t govern all that democratically. It didn’t. So it’s tempting to dismiss him as an anachronism, a vulgar populist famous for gratuitous yanqui bashing — for calling then U.S. President George W. Bush a malodorous “devil” at the U.N. in 2006 — an erratic and messianic retro-revolutionary whose country’s vast petrowealth let him indulge his Marxist nostalgia.

    For many, Hugo Chavez was a living, breathing throwback to the Cold War Era. A fitting reminder of how dead, backwards and bereft of original thought the so-called Progressives truly are. This was their icon, their Homo Universale. Ecce Homo! That man was Hugo Chavez.

    10 Bigoted Remarks Made by the ‘Tolerant’ Left In Obama’s ‘Post-Racial’ America

    During the 2008 Presidential campaign, we heard relentlessly about how Barack Obama would usher in the era of Post-Racial America. Upon his Presidential nomination and subsequent election, it reached a fever pitch, with every speech he made being lauded as the second coming of Martin Luther King, Jr. In reality, not so much. In fact, the reality was almost the antithesis of Martin Luther King, | Read More »

    Oliver Stone is mad about Reagan and Bush.

    Mad, mad Oliver! (Link fixed.) …I was going to write this whole thing up Dr. Seuss-style, but honestly? It came out completely lame. Anyway, it’s really simple: Oliver Stone’s angry as anything over the way that people cruelly went out and didn’t see his last movie, so he does what anybody would in his situation (and mindset) – go onto Bill Maher’s show and call | Read More »

    Oliver Stone “W.” Country first? NOT

    Oliver Stone, doing a hurry up rush Job on “W” to get it out before the election. What does this movie on Bush have to do with the election? If you are in the tank for Obama it sure does. *If all this sounds like the premise of a Hollywood blockbuster, then it is – sort of. The movie is W., a Bush biopic that | Read More »

    Flat out: I’m a progressive Democrat, and I’m sure I strongly disagree with most of those here on just about every issue (except gun control and some union-related stuff). Having said that, I’m genuinely curious about your thoughts on the upcoming Oliver Stone film about George W. Bush. Specifically, I’d like to know what your initial reaction is to the teaser trailer, which was just | Read More »
