Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Post-Racial Society edition

Good morning, everyone!  We haven’t opened a drum of toxic Freepitude in the “Post-racial” category for some time, so I’d say they’re overdue.

This seems a good place to start:

Clavell Jackson: Teabaggers Hate the Government, But Love Government Programs
EURWeb ^ | November 10, 2014 | Clavell Jackson

Posted on ‎11‎/‎12‎/‎2014‎ ‎12‎:‎02‎:‎28‎ ‎AM by 2ndDivisionVet

*I am still recovering from the midterm election results, but I hope two years of a Republican-run Congress will convince voters to get off their asses and put a Democrat in the White House.

I often find it hard to take Republicans seriously, because so many of their arguments fall apart under close scrutiny. Republicans are an odd bunch, some of their ideas show many of them have no idea how government works. During the rise of the tea party, there was an infamous quote from a woman at a rally, who said, “Take your government hands off my Medicare!” Who does she think provides Medicare? I never got the mentality behind teabaggers and even their love for President Ronald Reagan. Reagan once said the most frightening words in the English language were, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” He had a general disdain for government, which was odd because he sought the highest government position in the land.

(snip)

I was researching Erik Prince, founder of the notorious mercenary company Blackwater. Prince, who has deep ties to the Republican party, describes himself as a libertarian and thinks the government does things inefficiently. The growth of Blackwater was brought about because the George W. Bush administration decided it wanted the military to focus on fighting wars and many of its services could be outsourced. As a result Blackwater has received more than $1 billion in government contracts.

(snip)

If your company has received more than $1 billion in taxpayer money, then essentially it’s a government company. You don’t get to turn around and bash the government about being inefficient, when your sucking on the government teat. If you hate the government so much, how about you stop taking its money?

Another example of this hypocrisy is seen in rising GOP star Joni Ernst, who was recently elected to the Senate. Ernst, who has been compared to Sarah Palin (Is that a good thing?), has bragged about her expertise in castrating hogs as an example of how she would cut pork when she got to DC. She also said she keeps her nine millimeter handy to protect against a potentially tyrannical government.

She conveniently fails to mention that she has spent a lifetime working for the government she supposedly loathes. She is career National Guard and has health care and a nice retirement package paid for by the government. The Des Moines Register writes, “Joni Ernst hates the money government spends, but she sure enjoys the revenue her family receives from the government and will continue to receive from it. She was a county auditor, state senator and National Guard officer. She will receive a military pension at age 60. She is eligible to take advantage of Social Security laws due to the fact that her husband is 61 and will be exempt from her proposed privatization scheme.”

I would take Ernst more seriously if she didn’t benefit from the very government programs she rails against. Tea partiers seem to live by the motto, “I hate the government, but give me my government program.”

*******

I’ve had dozens of people here tell me that the GOP-e won the midterms and the Tea Party lost. Okay, then why did the left, as a whole, once they’d shaken off their shock at losing, go after Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and the Tea Party? Why didn’t they attack Yertl, Oompah-Loompah and Juan McInsane?

Wow, a CEO who uses the filthy term Tea Baggers to describe people he disagrees with Politically.

I wonder if he would refuse to hire a “Tea Bagger” to work for his Company?

Just another Bigot, ho hum.

Because these people irrationally hate anyone who doesn’t agree with them. They also take out their hatred at the more conservative people because they need something of a cut out to stereotype, scapegoat, etc.

Immigration protest canceled over ‘death threats from Mexican cartels’
Manchester Guardian ^ | Saturday 20 September 2014 16.38 EDT | Jessica Glenza

Posted on 9‎/‎21‎/‎2014‎ ‎7‎:‎29‎:‎10‎ ‎AM by Olog-hai

Conservative activists who planned to protest against illegal immigration and President Obama’s immigration policies on Saturday said they had canceled all events after receiving death threats from Mexican drug cartels.

Activists had planned to use vehicles as barricades to shut down border crossings at 17 locations in four states—Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. But the event, called Shut Down All Ports of Entry, was canceled early on Saturday morning by organizer Stasyi Barth, who said she had received the threats.

In August, a similar protest was canceled after organizers claimed they had been threatened by Mexican drug cartels. The organizer of that 30-vehicle “Border Convoy”, Eric Odom, canceled a rally meant for El Paso in Texas, but did not specify which cartel might have threatened his group. …

Cowards! Considering it would have made the public aware of the problem, some things are worth dying for!

If I lived remotely near there I’d be DARING them to come get me!

Of course you would.
So – who REALLY issued those cartel threats?
To: Olog-hai

The threats most likely came from Eric Himmler Holder and the un-Justice Department.

I’ll bet Holder has his connection with the cartels, as do a lot of other politicians in Washington.

That’s right – you heard it here first – Eric Holder is actually running the Mexican drug cartels.
I know that Freepers spend a lot of their time in cloud-cuckoo-land, but this is pretty brain-dead even for them.

OTOH—when Obama reneged on his promised amnesty E/O—-
Mexican drug cartels put him on their hit list.

Big talk behind a keyboard…yawn….

Some folks have family to consider.

The cartels aren’t sitting across the canyon waiting to do battle.
They know who the protest leaders are and where they live.

To: Olog-hai

I can guarantee you the threats are not coming from mexican drug cartels and are instead coming from the Obama administration.

I think the whole thing was a false-flag operation meant to dispirit anti-illegal immigration advocates.

Something VERY STRANGE here:

First, threats are part of the business, if you can’t deal with them, then don’t try to play ball. Next, if something is going to go down, that’s even better – you get the publicity you would have NEVER gotten otherwise…and that is also why 99% of threats never go beyond that stage.

Finally, just who is the leader here and what kind of credentials. Is that person a plant. I cannot think of a BETTER WAY for the Open Borders crowd to shut down AMNESTY as an issue in November than to do EXACTLY what just happened.

Like I said, very strange, I think that our movement got hijacked.

Ah, yes – The Founding Fathers were extremely concerned with the Mexican border – the issue almost made its way into the Declaration Of Independence, but they ran out of room on the foolscap.

Ferguson is by all accounts a powder keg, ready to go off the instant the cop who did the shooting is no-billed  (these things used to be so easy)
So – what’s the headline story?

Darren Wilson supporter fundraises enough for ‘Pants up, don’t loot’ billboard in Ferguson

The Washington Times ^ | November 18, 2014 | Jessica Chasmar Posted on 11/19/2014, 10:36:13 AM by Berlin_Freeper

An avid supporter of the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown has successfully fundraised enough money to erect a #PantsUPdontLOOT billboard in the embattled St. Louis suburb.

Don Alexander, of Brentwood, Tennessee, has surpassed his goal of $3,000 to erect the billboard featuring a phrase intended to mock “hands up, don’t shoot” — a rallying cry used by Ferguson protesters
