Quote Of The Day - Pot Call Kettle Black Edition

Calling Mrs. King a communist, something I keep harping on, because it is so vile and such a slander on her character and patriotism, and something so deeply racist, I wonder where a 24 year old learned this. But once it was clear that he did so, that ALONE should have been cause for ternminating him.

Liberal blogger Steve Gilliard, on finding a RedState comment from Ben Domenech calling Coretta Scott King "a communist." Gilliard is the blogger who posted doctored picture of Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele as "Simple Sambo."

What's wrong with calling her a commie? I thought that commies are GOOD. Isn't that what the lefties keep telling us?

Sheik Yur Bouty:


What you need to believe to be a Democrat today:

Saddam was good guy when he was slaughtering his own people, a bad guy when Billy boy bombed him to divert attention from his sex scandle at home, a good guy when Kerry says there was no reason to go to war, a bad guy when Kerry votes to use military force against him.

Trade with Cuba is good because cigars are fun(ask Billy) and Fildel only kills his own people. China & Vietnam are repressive too but they give us too much money to ingore them.

The United States should dissolve and become part of the One World Community the world will then immediately be free from any oppression. No weapons no bad people ... only peace and love.

Slowly killing an unborn innocent by tearing it apart limb from limb is good. Slowly killing an innocent disabled woman by starving her to death is good. Quickly killing terrorists, convicted murderers and rapists is BAD, but multi-national corporations can't make any decisions at all without government regulation.
You support a woman's "right to choose" to kill her unborn child, but don't believe that same woman is competent enough to homeschool the children she bears.

There is no god, morals are something you can make up as you go. We hate George Bush and everything he says. No Matter what!

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits, combat pay, Intelligence funding, New weapon development...

Starting in Kindergarten children should learn how to have sex & have it properly. They are going to do it anyway so the government should teach them.

A good way to fight terrorism is to talk to those that want to destroy us and keep attacking us. Everyone in the world must first agree on what we should do ... after all "can't we all just get along?"

We can take a snippet of news,a speech or anything, bring Michael Moore in and make anybody look silly.

Socialized medicine is the ideal. Nevermind all those people who spend every dime they have to get to the United States so they can get quality medical care...that their nation's socialized medical community can't provide.

20 years of data is all we need to show that billions of years of the earths environment is now changing because of us, we came from monkeys who came from slim in a puddle and you know it.

A president who lies under oath is okay, but a president who references sixteen words from an allies' intelligence report should be dragged through the streets naked.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning Second Amendment rights and shopping the courts for judges sympathetic to causes that wouldn't pass in any legislature.

Proven draft-dodging is irrelevant, but baseless claims of AWOL status is crucial to national security

Drug addiction is a disease that should be treated with compassion and understanding...unless the addict is a Conservative talk show host.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning Second Amendment rights and shopping the courts for judges sympathetic to causes that wouldn't pass in any legislature.

What Bill Clinton did in the Oral Office is irrelavant and his own business, but what Bush did in the 60's & 70's is of vital national interest.

"The People" in the First Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Fourth Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Ninth Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Tenth Amendment means The People; but "the People" in the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791) means the National Guard (created by an Act of Congress in 1903).

Mac Lorry:


I'm amazed that you don't think there's as much apparent hypocrisy on the left as there is on the right. You should have seen the response by Sheik Yur Bouty coming.

Thank God for the uncommitted and independent masses that hold this country together because it sure doesn't look like the left and right wings can agree on almost anything.

Sorry to go off topic here.... (Below threshold)

Sorry to go off topic here... but what *were* Mrs. King's economic beliefs?

I know (in a virtual internet associative way) only one avowed communist and other than being wrong, I'd hardly call her evil. In fact I like her rather a lot.

I'm about as free-market as it's possible to get, but I just don't see the point of letting people use "communist" or "socialist" as name-calling. You'd think someone called Mrs. King the N-word or something. Communism is (variously) an economic or political philosophy. It either applies to Mrs. King's beliefs about production, labor, and the economy or it doesn't.

If it doesn't, it's a matter of fact and can be ignored or rebutted. If it does? It hardly means that she was a bad person or even in bad company. Economic justice sorts often have communistic ideas about how to solve economic injustices.

There's darned good reasons that the theory doesn't work in application but I don't see how it's a dirty word.

No sin is worse than being offensive, of course. And certain people count on offense to drive their politics. Being offended by offensive people is proof positive that your virtue is unassailable.

Consistancy is apparently irrelevant.

My personal favorite is "liberals" who think that speculating about opponents weight is acceptable. "You're so stupid, I bet you're a fat cow, don't you have housework to do?" etc.

It's really very funny.

Mac Lorry,

I probably should have made clear that my response to Maggie was simply a 'cut and paste' response to her 'cut and paste' post.

How on earth is calling someone a Communist racist? That simply makes no sense whatsoever.

The person needs to be given a dictionary and made to look up what "racism" really means. It's because of people like this that no one takes racism seriously: everyone and their dog is accused of racism. It's unacceptable.

Muslihoon, my friend, since you are a non-native I will explain: Any criticism of a black member of the left by anyone on the right is racist.
Now, a black on the right, is by definition, a race traitor, so you can say anything negative about them.
Or at least, that is how it is played when leftist demagouges get involved.

Ah, thank you. Not that it makes it right. Every day convinces me more and more that the Left is stupid.
