There is offensive language on this video, so if that bothers you, you are warned. To my way of thinking the physical violence is more offensive:
Source: The indispensable Hot Air
The day after the attack on a fellow selling buttons and “Don’t Tread on Me” flags (and which immediately preceded this event), Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call to the SEIU, during which she greeted her union “brothers and sisters” and said “keep doing what you’re doing!”
Culture of Corruption, anyone? By the book.
From time-to-time I get commenters telling me what a horrid Catholic I am, because I don’t like the policies and practices of our president, and I don’t delicately mince my words about it. I seem to lack “nuance” or something.
I wonder if Catholic Sebelius’ tacit endorsement of physical violence and intimidation bothers these folks as much? Oh, wait, let me anticipate the response: “Obviously Sebelius could not possibly have known about the previous night’s beating, video of which was all over the internet, or she would have chosen her words differently, because no reasonable person could ever believe that she would actually be endorsing thug-tactics, which were probably staged and false, anyway. And there were no so-called “thugs” running interference in Tampa, either!”
That about cover it?
Okay, now, this photo essay is breathtaking – you’ll want to send it around:
So, Sebelius tells the unions to keep doing what they’re doing, and then Nancy Pelosi (another Catholic with life-issue-learning disabilities) who called the protesters “Astroturf” who “carry swastikas” (ahem) gets some help with GENUINE top-down-manufactured, David Axelrod-designed Astroturfing by her own team. Check it out, and see just who is being “organized by powerful interest groups” (and community organizers) and who are the grassroots protesters.
…an organizer from Organizing for America, which is the successor organization to Obama for America, which was Obama’s campaign organization. The organizer is demonstrating the use of a bullhorn to a man who appears totally unfamiliar with its use. For a grassroots campaign, this sure is organized! . . . This is the first time in my life that I can recall a government in North America organizing protests of one group of citizens against another. This is standard operating procedure in countries with left-wing governments.
This clinic is adjacent to Denver’s day laborer pickup street, Park Avenue. Being fluent in Spanish, El Marco asked these guys “¿hablan ingles?” “casi nada” was the reply from our amigo on the left. I asked him if he could tell me what the signs said. “¿Quien sabe?” (who knows?) was all he said to me, with a big grin. I’m kicking myself for not asking them how much they were getting paid to support the grassroots.
Check out the organizer’s “puppet,” meant to accuse the grassroots folks of being same. If it were not so demented, so dishonest, so disingenuous, so insulting and so very, very troubling, it would be hilarious. Of course, there is nothing hilarious about people “getting in their faces” ala Obama’s campaign command, and blasting out their ears with bullhorns.
“My organizer called me.” I said “You’re kidding.” She said, “No, look: he’s right there -pointing to the guy with the bullhorn – he’s from Organizing for America.” At this point, a number of the astroturfers departed, including Laura. She told me that transportation was waiting to take them to Nancy Pelosi’s next event at Highlands Ranch.
What unconscionable dishonesty from Nancy “I-think-they’re-astroturf” Pelosi. Everything she and her party says they hate, they are. Everything they accuse the opposition of doing, they do. I can’t even call it “projection” because in truth, projection is often innocent and unconscious. There is nothing innocent or unintended in their duplicitousness. This is such breathtaking dishonesty that it makes Bill Clinton at his lying worst look like a piker, like a mere Tom Sawyer.
Meanwhile, based on nothing more than their Obamalovin’ hate and the goofball numbers they can pull out of their asses, the increasingly whacked and utterly indecent Chris Matthews and his guest decide that hey, 45-65% of these protesters? Raaaaaacists! Yup. Yup. Yup!
So, you see, if you oppose Obamacare, you’re a bad person; if you’re a bad person, you can be labeled anything the left and the press (but I am redundant) want to label you. If you protest this president’s policy and the way he and his minions are going about suppressing dissent, then you are raaaacist. And if you suggest that Kathleen Sebelius and Nancy Pelosi are organized-movement cheerleaders you will probably be called a seeeeexxxist.!
I am waiting for some gay/lesbian/transgendered community organizer, astroturf-participant or member of congress to wade into this debate with an accusation that opposition to Obamacare is somehow opposition to gender-tolerance, so we can be called hoooomophobes, too, and win the Racist/Sexist/Homophobe Trifecta of Nasty Namecalling and Libelous Labeling – an award the left generously and incessantly enjoys handing out to the stupids on the right
What creepy, creepy people.
And if you don’t like that, if you think I’m a baaaad Catholic for spelling it out, well I feel absolutely no need to confess anything more than my contempt for what is going on in this country under the guise of false “hope” and nefariously dishonest “change,” and for the busy little useful idiots who carry this disease like wide-ranging cockroaches.
So, you should probably flag me to the government. And go ahead, report me to the pope, too, after you shake your head sadly and tell me how “disappointed” you are in me.

Reason: Where are all the dissident artists?. You know, that’s a problem. If artists have no more angst because they love everything in Obamaland, their art will die. But there is some hope for them – seems the recession is not over.
