Birth of the “speechers”

Main Entry: Speecher

1 : An individual who has been misinformed on the truth about free speech

The last 24 hours of news has presented us with a whirlwind of debate, thanks to Iranian President Ahmadinejad. The leader of the terror supporting country of Iran was given a welcome mat at Columbia University. This particular invitation ignited a firestorm across all sides of the political isle.

The right warned Columbia about the fact that this position would be used for propaganda purposes. Those warnings, of course, went ignored by the “progressive” leadership at the University.

The left, unlike the right, doesn’t much care about Iran’s support of terrorist organizations, nor does it accept the facts regarding the country funneling weapons and military assistance to terrorists in Iraq. But the left DOES care, like the right, that Iran murders those who are homosexual. The country also is suppresses women rights and has fought vicious wars against Iranian women who attempt to oppose the corrupt system… another issue both sides find unacceptable.

So why then, did Columbia continue to allow this evil dictator a chance to spew his madness?

Free Speech

What is it with this ilk that seems to believe free speech is a right to a microphone and a podium? It boggles the mind.

If free speech means the Iranian Pres should have a microphone, a camera, an audience, and a podium… why do I not get the same? If I call UNR, the local University here in Reno, could I not argue that free speech gives me the right to speak on campus at any event I wish?

This new breed of speechers is an ignorant bunch. Of course, that’s what happens when you toss out any sense of reason.

Oh… and note to Columbia University. Remember when you were told this would serve no other purpose but to give the Iranian dictator a tool of propaganda?

You should have listened.

We’ve now entered the age of the speecher. And in my opinion, this bunch is far more dangerous than the group known as the truthers.

Weekly Whopper: NYT admits wrongs in MoveOn attack ad

Whopper

Last week was an exciting week in politics. August, typically a slow month in news due to Congress not being in session, came and went with little fanfare. September dropped in with a bang, bringing us countless examples of self implosion on the left.

Last week, the NYT/MoveOn news picked up MUCH more fuel than it was able to burn without causing a complete meltdown. And melt down it did.

The tag team attack on an American hero was bad enough when it first launched, but since then, it has gotten much worse. An editor at the New York Times has given up the fight and finally admitted what we knew all along… the NYT gave aid and comfort to MoveON.

New York Times Editor Clark Hoyt:

I think the ad violated The Times’s own written standards, and the paper now says that the advertiser got a price break it was not entitled to.

What is Hoyt admitting to?

The ad infuriated conservatives, dismayed many Democrats and ignited charges that the liberal Times aided its friends at MoveOn.org with a steep discount in the price paid to publish its message, which might amount to an illegal contribution to a political action committee. In more than 4,000 e-mail messages, people around the country raged at The Times with words like “despicable,” “disgrace” and “treason.”

Whopper indeed…

Politics in the Sphere

Remember the Dry Cleaner biz that got slapped with a lawsuit for supposedly losing a pants that belonged to a judge? Apparently, that suit has opened the door for a new form of business warfare.

Speaking of bad money business, Clinton cash scandals continue to plague the left. Will this ever end? Answer… NO. Hillary Clinton is now considered the poster child for corruption.

While we’re on the topic of politics, Tech Republican found an interesting study on e-activism. According to the study, the internet is now a “hub” of political activism.

Heh… the lefty bloggers should have a new motto… “Insert Foot in Mouth”. As usual and on cue, they’ve once again taken something out of context.

Hot Air Quick Hits

It’s been said before, so the news isn’t really anything new, but McCain is still toast.

Behar “jokes” about GOP candidates attending Klan meetings. I guess she hasn’t looked into the past of the likes of Senator Bird and his ilk.

You gotta love it when a GOP candidate blisters the GOP. Good on ya Mitt!

Netherlands Tax Office

Wouldn’t you find it disconcerting that one of the most modern and expensive structures in your country was the central tax office?
