CPAC is the biggest convention of rightwing nutters each year. GOProud will be on hand again this year, which of course pisses off the most extreme of the nutters groups. From TPMuckraker:
As the right-wing World Net Daily reports:
“We’ve been very involved in CPAC for over a decade and have managed a couple of popular sessions. However, we will no longer be involved with CPAC because of the organization’s financial mismanagement and movement away from conservative principles,” said Tom McClusky, senior vice president for FRC Action.
“CWA [Concerned Women for America] has decided not to participate in part because of GOProud,” CWA President Penny Nance told WND. [Ed. note: Penny Nance’s title is chief executive officer of CWA. Another individual, Wendy Wright, holds the title of president.]
A few other social conservative organizations — including the National Organization for Marriage, which was at last year’s conference — have also withdrawn from the event.
Big tent? I don’t think so, its more like a pup tent. The homophobic crowd just can’t stomach those ‘gay’ groups that align themselves with the republican party. Way to go haters!
This fuckwad nutter blogger had his day in court and a jury of his ‘peers’ convicted him of making serious death threats against three, count em,THREE federal judges that upheld our nations gun laws in their rulings.
Hope ole Hal baby looks good in prison orange…and enjoys all the free time his disgusting ass will have cooling his heels in a federal pen. From Jurist:
A right-wing blogger from New Jersey was convicted by a federal jury Friday for death threats made on his blog against federal judges who upheld a gun control law. Harold “Hal” Turner, a one-time FBI informant on white-supremacist groups, was convicted in Brooklyn of a single count of threatening to assault and murder federal judges. Prosecutors alleged that Turner wrote on his blog that federal judges should die and posted the courthouse address and a map which prosecutors claimed showed his intent to intimidate and impede the judges from doing their job. Turner faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Federal prosecutors had tried twice before to convict Turner but both efforts ended with mistrials. The charges stem from comments Turner made on his blog against three judges from the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit who ruled in June in favor of two municipal gun control laws in Illinois: William Bauer, Frank Easterbrook and Richard Posner.
Threats against judges, US attorneys, and assistant US attorneys have more than doubled over the last six years, according to a report [PDF] released in January by the US Department of Justice. The report found that judges, US attorneys, and assistant US attorneys received 1,278 threats in 2008, compared to 592 in 2003. Additionally, the report found that threats are not always consistently and promptly reported. In December 2008, Brian Nichols was sentenced to seven life terms to be served consecutively in addition to other punishment for shooting and killing a federal judge and other personnel in an Atlanta courthouse in an attempted escape. In April 2008, Ohio resident David Tuason was indicted for allegedly threatening to blow up the US Supreme Court building and attack black men, including Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Other death threats have been reported in recent years against Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and now-retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
He faces up to ten years…and I pray to Buddha he gets all ten. These cocksuckers all need to feel the wrath of all Americans. They are extremists who many times own weapons and we all know how that shit can end…don’t we?
Serving up some irony this Monday morning, the state of AZ’s Dept of Public Safety has released a report(pdf), along with the FBI’s recently released report (pdf) on the level and types of crime being perpetrated by illegals and/or Mexican Nationals. It shows that all the bs being tossed out by the rightwing nutters is pure unadulterated fuckery. From AmericanProgess.org:
The facts on crime in Arizona
- Violent crimes in Arizona are down by 15 percent since 2006: The FBI’s preliminary Uniform Crime Report, or UCR, for 2009 shows that violent crime—murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault—is down in Arizona for the third year in a row. The absolute number of violent crimes in 2006 was 30,916 in Arizona. By 2009 it had dropped by 15 percent to 26,094.
- Per-capita violent crime rate dropped by 22 percent: Factoring in the change in Arizona’s population, the rate of violent crime per 100,000 persons in 2009 was 390.5, which is a 22 percent decrease from 501.4 per 100,000 in 2006. For comparison’s sake, the violent crime rate in nonborder states such as Georgia and Tennessee was 410.6 and 604.9 respectively in 2009.
- Arizona’s violent and property crime rate drop was twice the national average: Nationally, violent and property crimes were down between 2008 and 2009, but Arizona saw rates of decline more than double that. The nation as a whole saw a -5.5 percent change in violent crime and -4.9 percent change in property crime from 2008 to 2009, but Arizona experienced a percent change of -11.1 in the former and -12 in the latter in this same time period.
- Kidnappings are tied to Mexico’s organized crime syndicate, not innocent Americans: It’s clear that Arizona has an organized crime problem, with 267 kidnappings in 2009 in Phoenix alone. But the kidnappings most often occur when human smugglers—who are usually part of Mexican drug cartels—demand more money for their services. As Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said, “We’re talking about the kidnapping of smugglers and associates. I have no fear that my kids or grandkids will be victims.” This means that our efforts must be directed toward two fronts: fixing our broken immigration system so that people can immigrate legally with visas and not illegally with smugglers, and helping to resolve the deadly war on drugs in Mexico.
The article is quite illuminating and also includes a section on just the border regions…which are some of the lowest crime areas in the United States.
Another bit of irony for you: The Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police opposes S.B. 1070.
It’s almost mind-boggling how ignorant the extreme rightwing nutters are.
I said almost. All these fuckwits have to fall back on is threatening violence and hurling racial and/or homophobic or gender-based epithets. How friggin pathetic is that?
I hope to hell the intelligent, centrist voter has had enough of this horseshit. It’s only going to get worse and the corporate media will continue to keep it in the news…this is a good thing of course. Keep these fucking idiots front and center until November. Rachel’s take below:
The FBI is going to be very busy, if they aren’t already. These homegrown fuckwits have a very itchy, collective trigger finger. The violence has begun with the bricks through the windows of elected officials. The calls to violence are ringing loud with the help of Palin, Limpballs and Beck.
From C&L’s video site:
Even by Tea Party standards this one seems pretty low. Report by Dave Harding at Progress Ohio.
Video shot by the Columbus Dispatch from today’s Honk and Wave in Support of Health Care at Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy’s district office contains a segment wherein the teabaggers mock and scorn an apparent Parkinsen’s victim telling him “he’s in the wrong end of town to ask for handouts”, calling him a communist and throwing money at him to “pay for his health care”.
The segment starts at 51 seconds into the video.
Video and report from the Columbus Dispatch. Here’s a sampling of Teabagger “logic”:
“I don’t see anyone laying in the street dying. We provide care for everyone,” said Janet Popa, 61, of Upper Arlington.
“No one is turned away,” said her friend, Ruth Phelps, 50, of Upper Arlington.
The women and others noted that hospitals cannot deny care to those who show up at emergency rooms.
Supporters dismissed concerns about cost and expanding the role of government.
“If we can find the money to kill people in wars, we can pay for this,” said a Republican business owner from Westerville who declined to give her name.
“We are paying anyway (with charity care for the uninsured).”
There are some seriously sick fucks at that…cough..rally.
