"Rally To Restore Sanity" Crushes Glenn Beck's "Rally To Restore Honor"

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally To Restore Sanity attendance has been estimated in the hundreds of thousands.....

According to CBS News, 215,000 people showed up for the rally on Saturday. By comparison, CBS estimated that around 87,000 attended Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally in August.

It's really nice to see the good guys put one in the win column over the whackos!

Here We Go Again... Democrat Roughed Up And Arrested At Eric Cantor Public Event

Jon Taylor, a Democrat, was arrested by local police at a public meet-and-greet event for Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on Monday, with three men pulling him out of the building, slamming him on a car and eventually pushing him to the ground and cuffing him.

Taylor said he and three other Democrats including his wife went to the event with the intent to ask Cantor questions since he has refused to debate Waugh.

When Ray Minter, the owner of the coffee house, asked the Taylors to leave, they refused, and local authorities intervened. Minter said they were being disorderly, but the group of Democrats said they were simply drinking coffee and waiting for Cantor to arrive.

A Cantor spokesman went on to blame the Waugh campaign saying "This is a pattern with Rick Waugh of disruptive and frankly thuggish behavior," (Ummm, What?).

Once again, here is the video...

First the 100 pound girl and now and elderly man. Righties, Tea Partiers and Republicans really have their pulse on those in our society that they need protection from!?!?! What happened to the right to free speech... Anyone...?

Rand Paul Supporter Stomps Female Protester

A group of Paul supporters pulled female MoveOn member Lauren Valle to the ground and held her there as Paul supporter, Tim Profitt, stomped on the back of her head and neck.

The Misogynist woman beater, Tim Profitt, was Rand Paul's Bourbon County campaign coordinator.

Profitt has since claimed that the only reason he "restrained" the woman in such a manner was due to his bad back.

The Rand Paul campaign has cut ties with Profitt, removing him as Bourbon County campaign coordinator and banning him from campaign events.

Now I could easily drone on about how this incident is a microcosm of the Tea Party or how this was caused by the extreme right media whipping the ill-informed into a frenzy but I wont. Instead all I am going to do is ask for you to draw a parallel incident in your mind. Imagine for an instant if the rolls were reversed. What if a thug from MoveOn decided to stomp on the head of a little old Tea Party lady. Just imagine what the outcry might look like.....

To aptly finish this story off in fitting fashion, the stomper, Tim Profitt, has requested that Lauren Valle, the stomped, should apologise to him... No I'm not kidding and here is the video to prove it...

Anyone else notice how the brave Tim Profitt refuses to show his face? Quite telling. I'm glad it was added in after the fact.

Ken Buck Is A Moronic Bigoted Jackass

Last Sunday on "Meet the Press" Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck was asked by host David Gregory whether he believed that that being gay was a "lifestyle" choice.

Buck responded saying that he believed that "it was" in the same way that "choosing your partner" is a choice.

Gregory then asked if maybe it might not be "something determined at birth".

Buck then said "I think that birth has an influence over it, like with alcoholism and some other things, but I think that basically you have a choice,". Buck was quick to add, however, that he's no "biologist."

Here is the video...

When I picked my jaw off the ground I began to try to make sense of what Buck meant by his insane statement. Did he believe that if mothers drink to much while pregnant that the risk of their child being born gay? Did he mean that some people are born with a predisposition to being a drunk, a drug addict, a criminal, or..... gay? If that is the case wouldn't that mean the "condition" was and is genetic therefore causing a break in his own logic?

I am at a loss. However I am quite certain that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck is a moronic bigoted jackass.

The Tea Party Trifecta... Racism, Homophobia and Xenophobia!

A billboard in Grand Junction, Colorado uses caricatures to depict President Barack Obama as an Islamist suicide bomber, a homosexual, a gangster, and a Mexican bandit all sitting around a table with a bunch of greedy rats labeled as trial lawyers, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The billboard was created by "artist" Paul Snover who is an admitted Tea Party enthusiast. Snover refuses to divulge the identity of the person or people who paid for the ad.

It has since been taken down.

What else can be said except that I never cease to be surprised at how embarrassingly low people are willing to go?

Carl Paladino Is An Angry, Bigoted, Racist, Homophobe... Who Enjoys Bestiality Videos

Carl Paladino is an angry bigoted racist. He has said and done things that are absolutely mind boggling for someone running for public office. This is what happens when people vote without thinking. This is what happens when low information tea party voters are ginned up by right wing media... They vote for people like Palidino.

Here are a few gems from ol' Carl...

Paladino thinks homosexuality are "disgusting" and believes they are trying to "brainwash" children "into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option [compared with heterosexuality]. ... it isn't."

Here is the video:

While on NBC's "Today" show Paladino asked Matt Lauer if he'd ever attended a gay pride parade, explaining to Lauer, that men who participate "wear these little Speedos and they grind against each other and it's just a terrible thing."

Here is the video:

After these incidents came to light s few other revelations about Palidino's past and present reared their ugly heads as well.

As it turns out Paladino cashed in on Buffalo gay clubs "Buddies II" and "Cobalt". You see both clubs were located in buildings he owned and as it turns out his son William managed one of them (Clobalt). I guess as a lifestyle homosexuality is an abomination but their money is just as green as the next abomination.

Another interesting development is that as a result of Paladino's berating and trash talking about homosexuals his own nephew, who works on Paladino's campaign and who is openly gay, has since resigned his position.

It doesn't end their folks.... Here are a few other nasty facts about the bastion of morality that is Carl Palidino:

• Paladino sent out an email including a bestiality video of horse and a woman

• Paladino sent an email including racist images of an Africa tribesmen dancing entitled “Obama Inauguration Rehearsal" and an email showing chimpanzees doing an Irish dance entitled “proof the Irish discovered Africa”

• Paladino had an adulterous affair with an ex-staffer of his development company

• Paladino had an out of wedlock child with this mistress

Take a look at some of the other Tea Party favorites that have been elected in the primaries and I think you'll agree that they have gotten the candidates they deserve. One's that are just like they are... Angry bigoted racists homophobes.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell... Don't Enforce!

As of Yesterday the military must immediately stop enforcing "don't ask, don't tell". U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips' has granted an injunction forcing the us government to end it's discriminatory policy against openly gay men or women serving in the military.

Phillips' ruling also ordered the government to suspend and discontinue all pending discharge proceedings and investigations

The Justice Department attorneys have 60 days to appeal the ruling but all it appears that they have no interest in doing so.

Gay rights groups hailed Phillips' move, crediting her with what the Obama administration and all of Washington were too cowardly to do.

Right wingers seem to have gone all queer about the ruling. Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America claimed that Judge Phillips imposed"... her ill-informed and biased opinion on our military, endangering morale, health and security of our military at a time of war,"

Stay tuned I am sure more homophobic rhetoric will be forthcoming in the next few days courtesy of any and every intolerant bigot that is afforded an outlet in which to unleash their ignorant screed.

This will hopefully fast track an end to shameful chapter in our country's history...Now on to marriage!

Republican candidate To Represent Ohio’s Ninth Congressional District Is A Nazi Enthusiast!

Iott is second from right in the uniform of a Waffen SS officer.

Rich Iott is the Republican candidate to represent Ohio’s Ninth Congressional District. Iott has an unusual hobby. He likes to dress up in the uniform of the Waffen SS. You see, Iott is a member of a group calling itself the Wikings and has been since as far back as 2003. This "group" was created to honor those who fought in World War II in the 5th SS Panzer Division. The division comprised volunteers to the Nazi cause drawn from outside Germany. Iott has since defended himseld as just a "history buff".

Here, by the way, is the Wikings fabulous logo...
As if it needed to be said Iott is of course the Tea Party favorite! Iott believes the photo's publication shouldn't affect voters because in his words... "They have to take it in context,".

Right Wing Radio Duck

A hilarious mash up of old Donald Duck cartoons and insane Glenn Beck radio rants put together by Rebellious Pixels. I especially liked the ending.
