Update on New Thug-Tracking Site (Update – Now Live)

I had hoped to have the site up by last weekend, but it took our tech guy until today to get to it. I should have it ready to go by tonight, or tomorrow morning at the latest. The site is ready to go, I just need to fill it with content, which I’ll work on after dinner. Obviously, I have a lot to work with.

Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse was the top vote-getter in my poll. Hubby’s been helping me with the header – tell me what you think of it, (so far):

Oh, I see some of it got cut off. Here’s a smaller copy:

UPDATE:

The email for the new site is thugtracker@gmail.com. Send me your tips.

UPDATE II:

The site is now live, but it’s still a work in progress: Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse.

Video: One Lone Tea Partier Takes On Entire Pro-Union Rally

Oh my goodness… how big are this guys’  gonads? Watch to find out:

Note how our conservative friend smiles and makes valid arguments, while the Koch-obsessed union protesters respond by hurling profanities, and then try to drown him  out by chanting or booing.

Shut up, they said.

Bravo, fella.

UPDATE:

Wondering why the guy’s smiling?

Maybe he understands this is the last gasp of the left-wing’s union stranglehold on the economy:

Via Ed Driscoll:

“Da Techguy” deposited “The Democrats in a Wisconsin mine field:”

While some members of the GOP are getting wobbilly, I say man up. The reason why the left and the unions are screaming so loud is because they are losing both the argument and the visuals: as Powerline puts it:

I agree with Roger that this is a watershed moment. I think it is George Will who supplies the appropriate term for what we are seeing: “reactionary liberalism.” The petulant public employee unions and their associated goons swarming the Wisconsin capitol remind me of nothing so much as George Wallace blocking the schoolhouse door against integration, or the scenes, played out on national television in the early 1960s, of Democratic politicians whipping up mobs and setting dogs on civil rights marchers in the South. It was a clear sign the old order, also dedicated to preserving illegitimate privilege, was collapsing.

These protests aren’t a sign of strength, they are signs of weakness as the union bosses can’t quietly slip in the goodies they want. Or as even EJ Dionne acknowledges (and deplores) the Tea Party is winning.

Video: The BlogProf’s Global-Warming/Cooling/Climate Change/Disruptions Interview

Chris Kobus, otherwise known in the right-wing blogosphere as The BlogProf, was interviewed over a week ago by a reporter from the Oakland Press, which Kobus notes is one of the bigger papers in the Southeastern Michigan area.

The idea of the interview apparently got going after the severe snow that we have gotten here in Michigan, especially in the month of February. So Carol contacted Oakland University where I work and media relations contacted me.

 

 

Watch parts 2 and 3 at The BlogProf. You’ll be glad you did.

That interview lead to the same article hitting several different papers with different headlines:

The Oakland Press: The climate debate rages on

The Macomb Daily: OU professor says stormy winter has nothing to do with global warming

Daily Tribune: OU professor says stormy winter has nothing to do with global warming

Video Mash-Up: The Sounds of Madison Hell

When Republicans outsmarted  Dem Reps in Madison, last week -  finally breaking their 3 day long filibuster, and passing the  budget repair bill, all hell broke loose on the Assembly floor. There was wailing and gnashing of teeth not heard of since the  notorious Siberian Dig punched a hole through to hell.

Proceed with caution, the sounds you are about to hear are very disturbing indeed:

*Yes, I know the Siberian Dig story is an urban myth.

Unfortunately, that outrageously cacophonous uproar made by Wisconsin Democrats on the Assembly floor, is not.

Video: Fox News Reporter On Madison Protesters – “There’s Hate In Their Eyes”

The new civility means conservatives are supposed to shut up and let liberals have their way, apparently. This  isn’t a climate of hate…. it’s a climate of righteous indignation, you see, because being “anti-union” is “deplorable”. (Some guy told me that in the comments.) Free speech isn’t for fascist, non-liberal points of view.  “Union busters” and  Faux News are just getting what’s coming to them.

“Hey, that guy just hit me”

Partial transcript via The Daily Caller.

“One thing I think should make clear – the people coming after us from every live shot here, these people hate,” Tobin said. “These are people who don’t respect diverse viewpoints. In fact, they’re so afraid I’ll present a diverse viewpoint, that’s why they try to heckle me and shut down every live shot. They’ve made it clear, that what they want to make it harder for me to do my job. They are proud of that when they disrupt a live shot, when they really trample over the First Amendment rights or the First Amendment’s obligations of a reporter. Now, I am not saying that’s all of the people. Those are the people that come here and heckle and try to disrupt things. I look in their eyes – there is hate in their eyes. They don’t want to hear any kind of viewpoint that is different from their own. That’s why they do what they do.”

Later on, Fox Anchor, Greg Jarrett spoke with New York Post Columnist and Fox News contributor, Michael Goodwin about what we’ve been seeing in Madison. Goodwin nails it when he notes that the ugliness as evidence of the entitlement culture:

Oh, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how the MoxNews Video viewing lowlifes  responded to that last video at YouTube—-all class as you can imagine:

  • Jes*s H. Ch**st, this is some serious f*cking propaganda. F*CK FOX!

  • F*CK YOU FOX NEWS!! AND TO THE F*CKING RETARDS WHO SUPPORT WALKER!! FASCIST F*CKERS AND F*CK YOU OLD RETARD FOR TWISTING HISTORY!

  • Pictures of the signs, please? <<<<Low info voter right there.

  • Wow, I love how the protesters are chanting “Fox News Lies”. My own personal twist would be “Mainstream Media Lies” but its a step in the right direction none the less.

    FOX NEWS LIES!!!!!!!!

Video: Union Rally Gone Wild In Atanta GA – More Profanities and Thuggery on Display

Lefty thugs have no self awareness what-so-ever. They obviously have no idea how they look to normal people, which is why this stuff keeps happening. This works in our favor in the long-run, but it doesn’t work for the poor older woman who got shoved in the short run:

Watch as one of the thugs violently assaults a  Tea Party Patriot from behind:

 

Tea Party Patriot, Bill Greene, the man who was violently thrown to the ground by the union thug, explains what happened in this video. He says he  tripped over the older woman’s walker, after the thug swiped him.

If you still can’t see the thugs after this weekend, you are willfully blind.

Video: Union Thug Defends His Assault On Tea Partier-Says he was Pushing Back NeoCon, Fascist, Super Right-Wing Hater Who Spit On Him

Perhaps you’ve already seen the video of the Sacramento union thug attacking a tea party counter protester. Now you get to hear the thug’s side of the story.

If you thought these guys couldn’t be any more galling than they’ve already been for the past two weeks, think again. Ever wonder how many lies and left-wing cliches can one guy spew in thirty seconds?  Watch this astonishing video and find out:

Look how sweet and innocent he looks as  he takes a page from Emanuel “Spittlegate” Cleaver’s book,  accusing the guy of spitting on him. Nice touch.

New left-wing definition of Fascist: Someone who doesn’t want their tax dollars going towards  unions, and who gets assaulted for voicing an opinion about it.

Video: Unhinged and (Literally) Foaming At The Mouth Pro-Union Thug Says, “I’ll Make You Suffer”

Well, videos from today’s pro-union protests are starting to trickle in at YouTube. My new thug-tracking site isn’t ready yet, but if you have any good videos or stories to report from Saturday’s rally’s, email them to me, It will be up soon.

In the meantime, let me introduce you to “PackerBackerBob”:

At the pro-public sector union rally at the State of Illinois building in Chicago on February 26th, one protester who calls himself PackerBackerBob carried a sign claiming “the GOP hearts the KKK.” When asked to explain it, he offered $1 million to anyone who could prove it wrong before challenging anyone who disagreed to a fight.

“You bring it on, baby…I’m Chicago Bob, I’m a big bastard, and I’m the meanest damn liberal in the land”…:

Okay class, fill in the blanks: Liberalism is a ____________   ____________.

If you said “mental disorder” give yourself a cookie.

Kansas Republican House Speaker Considers Banning Union Lobbyists From Statehouse After Obscene Voting Fracas

The Topeka Capital Journal reported:

Kansas Republicans accused organized labor activists Thursday of forcing female legislators to endure sexually explicit and degrading comments while passing into the House chamber before a vote to end automatic deductions from paychecks for union political causes.

Democrats and a representative of the Kansas AFL-CIO disputed the GOP claims, and both sides pointed to video evidence to support their interpretation of events.

House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, said the vocal crowd crossed the line by engaging in salty commentary outside of the House chamber and by shouting inside the chamber when the paycheck bill came to a vote.

“There were comments of sexually explicit nature directed at both female legislators and female staff,” O’Neal said. “That’s the most disrespectful display from the gallery I’ve seen in 27 years I’ve been here.”

He said two union sympathizers attempted to intimidate a male House member into voting against the measure, which was passed 75-46 and forwarded to the Senate.

Now he says he may ban the offending union members from lobbying at the Statehouse.

KSNT has the Speaker’s statement about what happened:

More from Real Clear Politics:

Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal said Friday he is considering banning union lobbyists from the chamber’s gallery and legislative offices if they participated in a demonstration during a vote on a bill that would end paycheck deductions that finance labor groups’ political activities.

O’Neal said he and his staff are reviewing video of Thursday’s demonstration to see whether they can identify any registered lobbyists. It involved dozens of union members in the gallery shouting at House members to vote no before police and doorkeepers ordered them to leave and escorted them out.

The speaker, a Hutchinson Republican who supported the bill, also said he verified reports from at least six people that union protesters shouted obscenities at them and a lawmaker who claimed they tried to intimidate him to vote against the bill. Union leaders strongly dispute the allegations.

***

O’Neal called Thursday’s demonstration in the gallery “orchestrated.” At least one union lobbyist participated.

“This wasn’t, in my opinion a spontaneous show of emotion,” O’Neal said. “It was very, very well planned.”

O’Neal’s chief of staff, Rachelle Colombo, said Thursday that some union members shouted obscenities and vulgar sexual epithets at female GOP representatives and staff as they went in and out of a morning Republican caucus. The state GOP later issued a statement decrying the “street tactics” of “union thugs.”

O’Neal said Friday that one representative reported being surrounded by several protesters and feeling threatened by “the physical presence and the inflection of the voice.”

An AFL-CIO lobbyist said the union members were respectful and the Republican are the disrespectful ones for trying “to cast working people in that negative light”.

There is a video of the demonstration which O’Neal and his staff are reviewing to see if they can identify any registered lobbyists.

It allegedly involves dozens of union members in the gallery shouting at House members to vote no before police escorted them out.

I hope they release that video to the public. I for one would very much like to see it.

Here’s the press release about the union fracas at the Statehouse from the Kansas Republican party: Unions Bring Street Tactics to Kansas House Chamber

UPDATE:

Defiant unions staged a protest in Topeka, Saturday:

As he stood Saturday afternoon on the south steps of the Statehouse during a rally of labor union supporters, Sen. Anthony Hensley wasted no time taking issue with comments made  two days earlier by state Republican Party leaders.

“You don’t look like thugs,” Hensley, a Topeka Democrat,  said to cheers as he started his remarks. “You look like working-class people. You look like taxpayers. You look like Kansans.

Notice how he had no problem covering up for the thuggish  union lobbyists?

Also speaking was Rep. Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, who said “the right-wing extremists that have come to the Capitol have opened up a full-frontal assault on the Kansas worker.”

He said Senate Bill 2130 “is nothing but a political protection act for right-wing extremists.”

When Davis says, “Kansas workers” does he mean  non-union workers, too? And why always with the  projection with these people? The vote ended  deductions from paychecks to union political causes. That actually protects union rank and file who do not support the leadership’s “progressive” agenda. Unions are trying to protect their political power. Everything is about money and power to these people.

Davis also took a shot at Republicans for comments directed toward union members after Thursday’s House vote.

“The Republicans, after this bill passes, go out and call you a bunch of ‘union thugs,’” Davis told the crowd. “Shame on them. Shame, shame, shame.”

This is why that video needs to be made public. We’ll see who’s behaved shamefully.

Birds of a Feather…Use The Same Idiotic Talking Points

Newsbusters’ Lachlan Markay has caught Rachel Maddow lying -( AGAIN!)

For Rachel Maddow, corrections never come easy. But while the MSNBC host has at least offered corrections where she has previously gotten it wrong – granted, with the immense level of sarcasm and snark that is her hallmark – a recent flap with online watchdogs has the indignant Maddow splitting hairs in near-comedic fashion in an effort to avoid admitting she was mistaken.

But the numbers still belie her position.

The exchange began with Maddow’s appearance on Leno Tuesday night. She falsely claimed that “of the top ten people donating money in [the 2010 election cycle], seven of them were giving to Republicans.” In fact, as NB’s Noel Sheppard pointed out, Maddow had it exactly backwards: 7 of the top 10 individual contributors gave more to Democrats than Republicans during the past cycle (and a lot more at that).
Johnny Dollar noticed this comment made by Shepard Smith to Juan Williams on Fox News, Wednesday:

SHEPARD SMITH: Can you explain Wisconsin?…Have you looked at the list of the top ten donors to political campaigns, the top ten highest? Seven of those ten donate to Republicans. The other three that remain of those top ten, they all donate to Democrats and they’re all unions. Bust the unions, and it’s over.

Coincidence? Dollar thinks not.

Hmm, is Shep a Rachel Maddow fan? She cites some stats and draws a conclusion from them, and the next day Shep cites the same stats using similar language–and draws the same conclusion. Now if Rachel Maddow’s stats were general public knowledge this could be a coincidence.

Of course her stats are not general public knowledge because they’re completely wrong, as both Markay and Dollar prove in their posts.

So what’s up with Shep? And why hasn’t he corrected his mistake, yet?

***

Then there’s the unions and well, not to red-bait, but —the Maoist Revolutionary Communist PartyCPUSA, Socialist Workers Party and the Democratic Socialists of America are all on the exact same page in their fight against the taxpayers.

Coinkidink?

John Rossomando at The Daily Caller thinks it says a  lot about the unions that they sound so much like these Marxists:


“Egypt, whose revolution has been a constant source of inspiration here, reflected in signs and chants — and Walker’s new nickname, Gov. Mubarak,” an article reads from the International Socialist Organization’s webzine.

The webzine also describes the unions’ protest of Walker’s plans to force a vote on curtailing public-sector unions as “class war in Wisconsin” and as an affront to “the standard of living of working people.”

The formerly Soviet-backed Communist Party USA (CPUSA) echoed similar talking points.

“Using the deficit as a scare tactic, the right-wing corporate Republicans are on a fast track to defeat every initiative of the Obama administration, to destroy unions and public services at the federal, state and municipal level, and at the same time protect tax breaks for the richest few,” Joelle Fishman, chair of the CPUSA’s Political Action Commission, wrote in an article posted on her party’s website.

photo via El Marco.



Over in the Workers World Party’s newspaper Workers World, the presence of the student participants in the demonstrations is described as “as one of the most urgent tasks for young people at the moment.”

The country is reeling from a jobs crisis, not a deficit crisis. Investments in the needs of communities that create jobs and forestall layoffs will help to create a growing economy that benefits everyone. Otherwise, the deficit will continue to spiral.

***

An example is the expansion of transportation which would create new jobs and lower carbon emissions. Transportation for America, a coalition which includes a range of organizations from envrionment, labor and civil rights to developers and local elected officials, is organizing grass roots support for this project. The Equity Caucus of the coalition raises the level of struggle by arguing that communities most in need should be top priority, saying “By investing in transportation projects, America can get people back to work now, lay a strong foundation for future economic growth, and expand opportunity for millions of people. But we must target our investments equitably to the people and places that need them most.”


Richard Trumka:

Raise taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Specifically, he wants to raise the federal gas tax as a means to fund infrastructure spending. “We need a dedicated source of revenue to create infrastructure in this country,” he tells Aaron Task in the accompanying clip.

“We need to create jobs. The best way to do that is through infrastructure development.”

Simply maintaining the existing infrastructure in this country will cost $2.2 trillion over five years, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. That doesn’t include Obama’s objective of high-speed rails and green energy projects.

Zogby Poll Shows Voters Moving Away From Obama In Swing States

Voters in swing states would vote for someone else in the White House by a 13 point margin, and shockingly, even in blue states they prefer someone else by a 3 point margin.

Zogby International:

If President Obama runs his re-election campaign on the issues he discussed in his State of the Union Address, the outcome is not likely to be good for Democrats.

My newsletter, The O’Leary Report, in cooperation with ATI-News, recently commissioned a poll of 10,000 likely voters with Zogby International to determine what voters in each of three categories of states think on a wide range of issues.

For polling purposes, we divided all 10,000 voters into three camps: 1) Red states that did not vote for Obama in 2008 and are unlikely to do so in 2012; 2) Blue states that did not vote for McCain in 2008 and are unlikely to vote GOP in 2012; and 3) Battleground Green states that could go either way in 2012. The following 12 Green states all saw significant changes brought about by statewide and congressional GOP victories and GOP wins in state legislatures as a result of the 2010 midterm elections: FL, IN, IA, MI, MO, NH, NM, NC, OH, PA, VA, and WI.

The first question we asked voters in all three state categories is whether they think President Obama deserves re-election or if they think it is time for someone new in the White House.

Voters in Blue states would prefer someone new over President Obama by a slim 3-point margin (48% to 45%). The President should easily be able to make-up this ground once his campaign gets into full swing.

In Red states, however, voters would prefer someone new by a sizeable 22-point margin (58% to 36%), a sizeable margin that the President is unlikely to overcome. In Green states, voters want someone new in the White House by a 13-point margin (54% to 41%), showing that Obama’s quest for the critical middle-ground will be a severe uphill climb.

This is the Republicans’ race to lose.

More poll results:

Weekly Standard: Obamacare Isn’t Even Popular When Over-Sampling Democrats

The newly released Kaiser Health Tracking Poll shows that, by a margin of 27 percentage points (59 to 32 percent), seniors have an “unfavorable,” rather than a “favorable,” opinion of Obamacare.  The same poll also shows that, by a margin of 5 points (48 to 43 percent), Americans as a whole have an “unfavorable,” rather than a “favorable,” opinion of the overhaul. That’s not so striking in itself, but it is when you consider this fact: Only 24 percent of the poll’s respondents were Republicans.

Video: Pandemonium As WI Assembly passes budget-repair Bill

The vote wasn’t even close, and they had an unprecedented amount of time to debate the bill,   but the Dems still pretend they have the right to be morally outraged.

Ed Morrissey reports:

In the end, the bill that frightened off the entire Democratic caucus in the Wisconsin state Senate passed easily in the lower chamber, 51-17, in what had been a foregone conclusion:

After a bitter, 61-hour debate that was the longest in living memory, the sleep-starved state Assembly voted in just seconds early Friday to approve a watershed proposal repealing most union bargaining rights held by public workers.

Just after 1 a.m., Republicans cut off debate on Gov. Scott Walker’s bill and in pell-mell fashion the body voted 51-17 to pass it. In the confusion, nearly one-third of the body – 28 lawmakers including 25 Democrats, two Republicans and the body’s lone independent – did not vote on the bill at all.

Watch this stunning video of their reaction to the vote.  It sounds like the monkey cage at the zoo after a wolverine has snuck in. I am not kidding – they don’t even sound human:

For more unhinged video reactions, including a woman claiming that the vote means death for her, see The Blaze.

Heh….

The cacophony reminded me of Art Bell’s, “very disturbing” Sounds from Hell ( 2:00 in):

Poll: Vote For Your Favorite New Thug-Tracking Website Name

Yesterday, as new reports of Dem thuggery continued to roll in, I was reminded of the professional left’s farcical, “Tea Party Tracker” which was launched by the NAACP, Media Matters, Think Progress and New Left Media. Their site hasn’t had much to report because as we all know, tea partiers are peaceful, reasonable people who just want their voices to be heard. As of yesterday, it hadn’t even updated since 10/20/10. It’s almost like it was launched primarily as a pre-election stunt to smear the right.

But it got me to thinking – if the left is going to create a site to try to prove that tea partiers are racist (which they aren’t), why don’t we have a site set up  to expose the violence and moonbattery on the left? Yes, we have an army of Davids posting these videos and stories on their own blogs, YouTube, and Facebook accounts as they come in, but I thought it would be helpful in countering the media narrative (teaparty: racist hatemongers – leftwingers: peaceful and righteous) if we had one place to store all the videos and news accounts. This site will have little commentary – just videos and news accounts of left-wing thuggery and/or moonbattery. I’ll set up a new email account for tips, which people can access at the site.

This isn’t a stunt. And it’s not an unfair smear. Right wing activists have been aware of extreme  left-wing thuggery for years, but the public at large doesn’t see it because the Make Believe media doesn’t like to cover it.

My post, Hey, Maybe It’s Time For a Conservative Counterpart to “Tea Party Tracker”, got a good response, with many great suggestions for names for the new site. Today, I ‘m asking people to vote on their favorite name.

Please share this poll, I’d like a good response.
