In a Coulter vs. Maddow match-up who do you think wins? Heh. That’s right:
In her latest column, WOULDN’T A MINI SERIES ON ATTILA THE HUN EXPLAIN NANCY PELOSI? Coulter eviscerates Maddow’s recent Teaparty/Timothy McVeigh extravaganza on MSNBC.
On her April 14 show, Maddow gave a “War of the Worlds” report on gun rights activists whom she claimed were planning tributes to Timothy McVeigh’s bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City. “On the anniversary of the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh,” she said, “there will be two marches on Washington.”
After reminding viewers that McVeigh was “an anti-government extremist with ties to the militia movement” (his only “ties” being that he tried to join the Michigan Militia, but was rejected) Maddow said one of the groups, the Second Amendment March, had “been holding armed rallies at state capitols from Kentucky to Montana to Virginia — anti-government marches and rallies at which participants are encouraged to wear and display their guns.”
So if I have this straight, the pro-Second Amendment marchers were both armed … AND displaying guns!
Having received an “A plus” from the Department of Redundancy Department, a deadly earnest Maddow continued: “Also on the occasion of the Oklahoma City bombing anniversary,” there would be an Open Carry rally.
Participants, she said, “are being encouraged to bring guns” (you know, just like the guns Timothy McVeigh used to shoot up the federal building in Oklahoma City).
True, April 19 is the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. It’s also the anniversary of Lexington and Concord.
Doh. Glad to see someone is keeping an eye on the crapola coming out of the MSNBC sewer.
And now Ace, as brilliant as ever with his latest stream of consciousness:
Obama: As I’ve Always Said, I Promise I Won’t Raise “Any Form of Taxes” Income Tax on the Middle Class:
He starts off talking about Obama’s blatant oft repeated tax lie, and goes on to the fact that Republicans need to call him out on his lies, and then to the reason why they don’t is because of the people who get too perturbed by scary, judgmental words like “lie” – who would rather not have an opinion on such things (pssst:Independents), to the two types of Independents:
Obama’s “pledge” was always a lie, and the media repeated his promise incessantly, and uncritically, to sell Obama as a different kind of Democrat. They never inquired how it was he could spend so much more without bankrupting the country if he also did not raise taxes on the middle class — a bit of easy math would have shown this as an impossibility, but, alas, the media was apparently told there would be no math in this election.
Obama originally planned — and stated as much — to tax the middle class by levying huge carbon taxes which would of course hit the middle class (and poor, for that matter). He confessed — or rather proudly declared — that his planned carbon taxes would “necessarily” cause electricity rates to “skyrocket” — and again, the media simply ignored this, and again, simply insisted to the public that Obama’s word was bond about not raising taxes. Even though he just announced that taxes would be raised in the form of “skyrocketing” electricity costs.
That was Obama’s Plan A for raising taxes on the middle class — taxing the living hell out of the motive force of our economy, energy, which every single human being and business uses in varying quantities.
His Plan B was the VAT.
This is not some kind of “readjustment” to “new realities.” The man simply lied, and he did so deliberately. He always intended to raise taxes broadly on the middle class, either through Plan A or Plan B or some Plan C waiting in the wings. (Actually, he already has raised taxes on the middle class, of course; call those Plans Alpha through Epsilon.)
He gets to deliberately lie with impunity, however, and never be called what he is: Liar. Because he’s special, you see.

Psychotherapist, Robin of Berkeley, is always a good read. In her latest piece at The American Thinker, she explains how she had to deprogram a young woman raised on eco-extremism.
Why I Am Enlarging My Carbon Footprint:
A sensitive soul, Emma became terrified that her beloved Earth would perish, and that she’d be culpable. Starting in third grade, she became an environmental fanatic. Emma went ballistic on her disabled grandmother when the old woman threw a bottle in the trash.
After school, she and her friends would sift through other people’s garbage to root out recyclables. While Berkeley has plenty of homeless folks going through trash, Emma and her friends were out to save the world.
The poor thing would even sob in her car when she had to drive more than a few miles. She envisioned the pollution burning up the rain forests and asphyxiating polar bears.
A year into our therapy/cult deprogramming, I asked Emma about her fixation with all things ecological. She replied, “I’m over it.”
Emma hasn’t morphed into a consumer-glutton. But she’s not making herself a stress case anymore. Emma even told me, with obvious pride, that for the first time in her life, she took a road trip.
How did I help Emma snap out of her trance? I simply imparted truths that someone should have communicated years ago, like the following:
Emma, you’re a wonderful, good-hearted person. You deserve to be here. Your life is a blessing. It’s OK to drive your car or to take a bag from the store. You deserve all these things and more. Besides, the earth has been here for millions of years and will be here long after your great grandchildren are gone.
Now, if the planet is not about to crash and burn, why turn children like Emma into eco-warriors? Why condition them to take three-minute showers and lambaste their elders?
The Left’s underlying goal: to convince all of us that we don’t matter.
