Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – strange bedfellows edition

Morning, all! Firstly, in The Endless Freepathon(tm) news, the usual trick of throwing subsciptions and pledges into the total at the last moment and declaring victory doesn’t seem to be working so well lately.

The Thick Red Line’s been sitting at 84% for a week or so now. Was Lincoln right?

Anywhoo, let’s pause in the mining of Freeper Fools’ Gold from days of yore and get right to the new stuff, shall we? Theres a lot of infighting this week as the pseudo-libertarians and the for real fascists lock horns.

ISO suits on – blowers on max – airlock seals lubed (my favourite part) – rubber duckie dangling from light fixture…

KIBITZER!!! Very funny. Take that down please, before I shoot it.

Thenk yew.

First off –Ap-Pauled!!

Ron Paul: Manning ‘should be released’Politico ^ | 8/22/2013 | Breanna Edwards

Posted on Thursday, August 22, 2013 6:34:00 PM by Republican Wildcat

Former Rep. Ron Paul believes that Chelsea Manning — previously known as Bradley Manning — has done enough time in custody for the WikiLeaks scandal and should be released.

Paul, who made his comments at a Reddit AMA session on Thursday, agreed that Manning should’ve been punished for practicing civil disobedience and breaking the law, but Manning’s time served until now, as well as the other factors in the case, should prompt Manning’s release.

“He deserves some punishment, but he has already received (in my estimation) excessive amounts of punishment. He has been in prison for over 3 years as well as tortured, and most military personnel who are caught committing war crimes never receive any penalties.” Paul wrote when asked about Manning’s sentence.

“I think he should be released now, that he has done us a great service by letting the people know the truth[. He’s] a whistleblower in my estimation (even the courts did not charge him with aiding the enemy), and I believe his goal was to inform the American people of the truth about what was happening in the Iraq / Afghanistan Wars,” the veteran politician who now runs his own Internet show wrote.

Given where the socialists and RINOs have led us I really want to support Libertarians when I can as I believe this country needs a strong dose of “leave me the Hell alone” inserted into the mix. Then crazy crap like this comes out. I hope Rand doesn’t want to release Manning.

And therin lies your problem.
Republicans have never really liked libertarians, but tolerated them as useful idiots. It’s the political equivalent of “Cafeteria Catholics”, deciding what to pick and choose from the libertarian buffet of crazy.
They like the idea (or at least they think they do) of paying no Federal Income tax, but hate the idea of not being able to summon up a couple of Divisions to go bomb and shoot up some brown people.
They like the idea (or at least they think they do) of not being spied on, but they hate the idea of what Manning did to the point of wanting him killed.
Republicans are mostly Authoritarian jerkoffs with delusions of independence.
You can’t have it both ways, bozos. Pick a side and come down on it.

Poor Rand. I almost feel sorry for him. He needs to have a talk with his dad. If Rand has any shot in ‘16… Ron needs to be sent to the rest home now.

He can’t keep his mouth shut, can he. No matter the amount that this will reflect on his son and their common political heritage, he still has to take the contrarian position on everything that comes up.

Libertarians on the street are okay guys — we even sometimes agree. But their icons are often nuts.

Ron Paul’s ridiculous positions pretty much more than cancel out all of his correct positions on the issues. This one is so off the wall that one can only conclude that Ron Paul is certifiably insane.

He needs to shut up and go away before he destroys his son’s political career.

See? Love Rand Paul, but hate Ron Paul, because he won’t be quiet with the crazy. So when TraitorTraitorTraitorTraitorTraitors like Manning come along, Freepers are upset that reality clashes with their Authoritarian / fascist / line-them-all-up-and-shoot them mentality.
To: Republican Wildcat

Ron Paul is absolutely correct. Manning should be released.

Bill Kristol Doesn’t Want Any More Credit for Sarah Palin’s Career (Elspeth, again)
The Atlantic Wire ^ | August 20, 2013 | Elspeth Reeve

Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 8:12:13 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

When Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol suggested on Sunday that Sarah Palin restart her political career by running for Senate, people noticed, because more than anyone else —more than John McCain, the candidate who picked her as his running mate, more than Steve Schmidt, the adviser who urged McCain to do it — Kristol is credited with launching Palin’s career. On Tuesday, Kristol made it clear he does not want all that credit (or blame).

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Nicolle Wallace, who was Palin’s aide during the 2008 campaign, asked Kristol, “How did you feel as sort of being branded as the godfather of Sarah Palin, Inc.?” He responded, “It’s not the worst thing that’s ever been said about me. You know, I have a thick skin.”Of his suggestion she run for Senate on Sunday, Kristol said he was not predicting or endorsing a Palin candidacy in 2014. “I was asked, ‘Does Sarah Palin have a future?’ and I just tried to give an analytical answer — which is, I don’t think she does…” They don’t even chat these days, he said. “I haven’t been in touch with her in a year or so.”

Why does Kristol get so much Palin blame? By October 2008, Palin’s vice-presidential candidacy looked so disastrous that The New Yorker published an explainer for how she got to be picked as McCain’s running mate in the first place. Jane Mayer pegged Kristol as the No. 1 culprit. A circle of Republican commentators had developed a political crush on Sarah Palin during a luxury cruise to Alaska in 2007, she reported. Kristol was her “most ardent promoter… and his enthusiasm became the talk of Alaska’s political circles.” By the summer of 2008, Kristol was campaigning for McCain to pick Palin…

She was the only reason that millions of conservatives and others voted for McCain, yet they want to paint her as a disaster? MMmmkay.

To: 2ndDivisionVet

I agree with you, but Bill Kristol was the person who brought her to the national stage. He likes her.

…But he knows that the resignation thing is something that she is going to have to overcome.

Hey – maybe she can go back and run for Senator? That’s always a good starting place for Presidential ambitions.
Earlier this month, Palin floated the idea ofchallengingDemocratic
Sen. Mark Begich in 2014. A PPP poll released Tuesday showed Alaskans
were lukewarm to the idea of Palin running for the Senate. She trailedBegich by double digits and Alaskan voters had a 58 percent unfavorable rating of Palin.
OK – maybe not.

She is so “irrelevant” that they are always talking about her.If she had no future, why does she get so much attention from her enemies?

Kristol’s right.

Now, I like Sarah — I’d vote for her in a heartbeat. But most people, including a substantial number of Republican,s don’t. It’s not fair; it’s not sensible; it’s not logical.

But it’s the case. Spare us, please, the de rigueur smearing of Kristol for pointing out the obvious.

Billy boy, you change your tune more often than the octagon mom changes diapers. Truly, few are interested in what you think. Such a shame you turned out the way you are. Just one question before we totally cast you aside…Are you planning the same fate for Liz Chaney that you had for Sarah?

One can only hope. That dingbat as Veep would be pretty much (to people with functioning central nervous systems) as garlic to vampires.

You and McLame are certainly a pair.

And Sarah’s a pair all by herself. Add Bristol, and you have a full house. Literally.

Throw in Grahamnasty and we’d have three of a kind.

A drill to make America think it was real to forward 0bama’s upcoming second term agenda of gun control. Amazing how just the right thing happened to give 0bama all the ‘ammo’ he needed to begin his assault on the 2nd Amendment right before he started his second term.

Reminds me of the BP oil rig disaster setting the stage for 0bama’s assault on big oil with countless moratoriums.

What timing, huh!

Heh. My work here is done.

Haven’t the police reports been hidden to never be shown under some state secrets law – unprecedented. I recall hearing something about that.

Also the bodies of the children were not shown to the parents and then not at the funerals either. Where are the parents of the real kids that can be proven to be gone from the community. Those parents that spoke a few days after the shooting were bizarre. They did not act in a way grieving parents would have nor speak about their apparent lost child in a normal fashion.

  1. I’m a little amazed the wingnuts haven’t declared Antoinette Tuff as The Enemy for talking the shooter down instead of shooting him. She ruined the Gun Nut Superhero narrative!

  2. Did you really have to start off telling me that Ron Paul and I seem to agree on something? (I’d say that Manning was a whistle blower regarding to a group that was lying to Congress. Ditto for Snowden. If anything else, the constant lies to Congress and the people make any number of conspiracy theories believable).
    And as proof of making conspiracy believable, the local comments on the TV News station also included the oldie but goodie that Sandy Hook was a conspiracy and that no kids were killed (even thought the Florida professor behind that one has since recanted – but no one ever reads the corrections/errata hidden in small print on page 20).

  3. RE: Bill Kristol and Palin.
    I thought Billy Crystal was a comedic actor. Would definitely explain the Palin connection (who couldn’t even handle a book tour).
    Oh, sorry, wrong Bill Kristol.
