Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses – except in AZ

Emptywheel has a postup this morning that really chaps my ass. It’s about the new State bills in AZ that want to take citizenship away from babies born in the U.S. to parents who are not citizens. It’s the hate that the rightwing nutters have for anyone of color and specifically brown babies born to brown parents that aren’t citizens of our nation. First, let me quote Emma Lazarus, from the Statue of Liberty and how people were never questioned when they showed up on our shores: Read the rest of this entry

The violent rightwing nutters have to be stopped..curbstomping women is never justified

Timmy ‘the thug’ Profitt with his man Rand

After MoveOn’s Lauren Valle’s head was stomped into a curb by a member of Rand Pauls’ team..I mean, thug, things have gotten to the end of the line as far as I am concerned. A rightwinger named Silverfiddle likes to comment on my blog when I post something negative about the batshit crazies known to us as Teabaggers.

He had the nads to post this quote on the post below this one…I quote him:

Thuggery begets thuggery… 

He gives nothing to support his comment, but as far as his rightwing nutter-ass is concerned, this type of behavior is evidently justified..in any situation.

It’s not…not by any group or individual. It’s disgusting, it’s ignorant and as far as I am concerned, its against the law as it’s an attack without provocation, because the individual, Tim Profitt, who stomped Lauren’s head and neck, is a truck load of pond scum who has zero credibility as an intelligent, thinking, rational human being.

Rand Paul originally loved this jackhole,as he listed his dumb ass as a wonderful, magnanimous supporter, ole Timmy had given him roughly 1500 bucks, per Lawrence O’Donnells show….before he moved far far away from this bag of batshit and dumped his disgusting ass after he curbstomped a small, unarmed female exercising her right to free speech. From the FDL piece linked above:

The Paul campaign has disassociated with Profitt, who was the campaign’s Bourbon County coordinator. But before they did, in today’s Lexington Herald-Leader, the Paul campaign ran a full-page ad touting Profitt’s support:Profitt’s name appears at the bottom of the ad.

If this doesn’t show the voters of KY wtf they will get if they elect Rand Paul…then they are so far gone over the edge, it is fucking hopeless. They are nothing more than ignorant, uneducated assholes who care nothing about the constitution or the bill of rights….merely getting a white male-led government again…ala George W. Bush.

I am happy to report this bag of sheep shit has been ordered to appear in court after Lauren was released from the hospital with a concussion. The sumbitch actually is defending his actions by blaming the ‘camera angle’, that he was concerned for Rand Paul’s safety and (I love this one) the cops should of intervened. From the Chron  link above:

Lexington Division of Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said Tuesday that officers will deliver a summons to Profitt to appear in court. A judge will determine whether to proceed with an assault case.

Profitt said the fight never would have occurred if police officers had intervened earlier.

“A friend of mine went up to three policeman before Rand got there, and told them about the girl who was standing there with that wig on and that she was getting ready to do something,” Profitt said. “The policemen looked at him and said that’s not our job.”

 Oh yeah…a small female holding nothing but a cardboard sign was going to harm Rand Paul. Give me an effin break you American Terrorist. You fucking bully. You are a disgusting piece of human excrement Tim Profitt and I hope to hell you have charges to face in court…although considering the venue, I highly doubt it. The fight? You stupid fuck, there was no fight, she simply tried to protect herself from you stupid bastards..nothing more.

UPDATE: Lisa Graas, a KY blogger has Id’d the second asshole that went after Lauren.  His name is Mike Pezzano. Another douche nozzle who hopefully gets a summons to appear in court on this attack as well.

Video: Rand’s Teaparty Thugs stomp activist from MoveOn

Sick batshit bastards…yeah, they just can’t handle anything out of their own little world can they? And these fuckers vote? Scary shit…very scary how our country has turned to this type of violence. Free speech? Not at a Rand Paul event evidently. MoJo has more detailed story here.

Sign the statement here to demand that the assholes that run the Republican Party, Rand Paul and all their fuckwitted candidates denounce these batshit teabaggers and their violence.

Matt Taibbi: Tea & Crackers.

He calls them Tea Party 2.0 and he’s right of course. His newest at RS is a great read. A short excerpt:

It’s taken three trips to Kentucky, but I’m finally getting my Tea Party epiphany exactly where you’d expect: at a Sarah Palin rally. The red-hot mama of American exceptionalism has flown in to speak at something called the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, a gospel-music hoedown in a giant convention center filled with thousands of elderly white Southerners. Palin — who earlier this morning held a closed-door fundraiser for Rand Paul, the Tea Party champion running for the U.S. Senate — is railing against a GOP establishment that has just seen Tea Partiers oust entrenched Republican hacks in Delaware and New York. The dingbat revolution, it seems, is nigh.

“We’re shaking up the good ol’ boys,” Palin chortles, to the best applause her aging crowd can muster. She then issues an oft-repeated warning (her speeches are usually a tired succession of half-coherent one-liners dumped on ravenous audiences like chum to sharks) to Republican insiders who underestimated the power of the Tea Party Death Star. “Buck up,” she says, “or stay in the truck.”

Gawd, I swear you could not pay me enough to attend a Sarah/Rand Paul get-together. My fucking head would explode.

He goes on to describe the crowd: White and crippled. No shit, they got a shit-load of hover-rounds and scooters there. wtf? They are all paid for by medicare…aka the federal government! And these fuckers bitch about big government and freeloaders? Fuck me running…

The best line in the piece:  But after lengthy study of the phenomenon, I’ve concluded that the whole miserable narrative boils down to one stark fact: They’re full of shit. All of them. At the voter level, the Tea Party is a movement that purports to be furious about government spending — only the reality is that the vast majority of its members are former Bush supporters….

Read it, Taibbi never lets me down. Bless his little black journalistic heart. 😉

Rand Paul has no clue about Harlan County

Perhaps it’s because I do know about the history of Harlan County that this fuckery pisses me off and has raised my blood pressure off the friggin charts tonight. I lived in western VA for a while and I remember old timers telling me about what went down in Harlan County, Kentucky, not once but twice. From Salon:

Next month’s Details magazine has a profile of exciting Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul, the Republican libertarian who no longer speaks to the national press, because they keep trying to make him defend his beliefs, and he is not very good at that, because he is, I think, kind of dumb.

TPM digs in and finds that Paul supports mountaintop-removal coal mining. He thinks, of course, that it should be left up to private landowners, but he also thinks that flattening mountains makes them prettier and creates some really nice land that can be used to make a “sports complex.”

But I found this bit much more illuminating. Driving through Harlan County, the site of a hundred years of bitter, bloody labor disputes, Paul reveals the breadth of his knowledge of Kentucky history:

Rand Paul and I are trying to remember why Harlan, Kentucky, might be famous. That’s where Paul is driving me, on a coiling back road through the low green mountains of the state’s southeastern corner, in his big black GMC Yukon festooned with RON PAUL 2008 and RAND PAUL 2010 stickers. Something about Harlan has lodged itself in my brain the way a shard of barbecue gets stuck in one’s teeth, and I’ve asked Paul for help. “I don’t know,” he says in an elusive accent that’s not quite southern and not quite not-southern. The town of Hazard is nearby, he notes: “It’s famous for, like, The Dukes of Hazzard.”That ignorant fuck couldn’t hold the miners hard hat for the hundreds of men that fought for years and years to get safety procedures implemented in the mines of Harlan County. 

Yes, I am a unionist…yes, I support unions(although it gets harder every year), OSHA and anything else that takes the safety of miners above profits for the owners. Evidently Rand’s dumb ass not only doesn’t have a fucking clue, he supports Big Coal. ..to the eff’n hilt I might add as he loves the shit out of Mountain Top Removal.

Rand baby…in the 30’s Harlan County coal miners took it to the hilt to get safety regs and fair wages for their work in the shitty-ass mines in their neck of the woods…its referred to as Bloody Harlan, you fucking idiot, for a reason. Try checking out this site which gives us the numbers and names of all the miners who have given their lives to earn a shitty living. Remember these words from the Governor of the state during the trials for the miners of Harlan who had the nads to strike in the 30’s:

“there exists a virtual reign of terror (in Harlan County), financed in general by a group of coal mine operators in collusion with certain public officials: the victims of this reign of terror are the coal miners and their families… a monster-like reign of oppression whose tentacles reached into the very foundation of the social structure and even into the Church of god… the homes of union miners and organizers were dynamited and fired into… It appears that the principal cause of existing conditions is the desire of the mine owners to amass for themselves fortunes through the oppression of their laborers, which they do through the sheriff’s office.”

 Then, in the 70’s, the workers did it all over again you friggin asshole. Watch the movie, Harlan County USA, here for free, you corporate ass-kissing jackass, it will take 105 minutes of your worthless fucking life.

Or read the book, Hell in Harlan either in the Library of Congress or buy a copy online you fuckwad.

Christ-all-fucking-mighty…there is nothing I hate more than ignorance of our history as a nation of workers…nothing. And Rand Paul is as ignorant as they come. Buddha help those people if they elect that fucking moron..I swear on my grandmothers soul, they will live to regret it.

Am I pissed off tonight…oh hell yeah…because I know of what I speak…and I know Appalachia and most of that part of the world have given their lives and their souls for the dirtiest form of energy on the face of the fucking earth..and they gave their lives and their souls for pennies….fucking pennies.Generations have done it and continue to do it.

Below is a trailer for the movie on the 70’s strike which can be watched online for gratis at a link above.

May your dumb ass rot in hell for all eternity Rand Paul. At the lowest level Dante wrote about.
