Wingless, Bloodsucking and Parasitic: Meet the Flea Party!
by Ann Coulter
So far, the only major accomplishment of the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters is that it has finally put an end to their previous initiative, “Occupy Our Mothers’ Basements.”
Oddly enough for such a respectable-looking group — a mixture of adolescents looking for a cause, public sector union members, drug dealers, criminals, teenage runaways, people who have been at every protest since the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, people 95 percent of whose hair is concentrated in their ponytails, Andrea Dworkin? look-alikes and other average Democrats — they can’t even explain what they’re protesting.
The protesters either treat inquiries about their purpose as a trick question, or — worse — instantly rattle off a series of insane causes: “No. 1, abolish capitalism; No. 2, because 9/11 was an inside job; No. 3, because Mumia is innocent …”
Curiously, the only point universally agreed upon by the protesters and their admirers in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media is that “Occupy Wall Street” should be compared to the tea party. Yes, that would be the same tea party that has been denounced and slandered by the Democratic Party and the mainstream media for the lastthree years.
A while back, there was a saying going around, seen on t-shirts and hats, “It’s a black thang. You wouldn’t understand.” I always thought that was a rather odd thing to be wearing, since we’re all suppose to be American, and segregation was ended quite a while ago. So, I often wondered why people wanted to put a wall up between themselves and their fellow Americans, no matter the skin tone. The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve learned, and I’d like to think I’ve gotten a wee bit wiser.
I came across a couple of columns by a young fellow named Ron Miller, who explains the reasoning behind the division. His answers are not surprising, but I find it disturbing that the lies are growing, and actually being taught in taxpayer funded public schools.
Take the time to read these two columns:
Herman Cain was right. There are people in this country who have been brainwashed. If the education system and the media actually did their jobs, we would have well informed citizenry who would use their vote wisely. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.
U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy says he’s planning to introduce legislation to make it a federal crime for people to mislabel products as containing maple syrup.
I say we make it a federal crime for morons to hold public office.
Leahy said Tuesday the legislation is needed to protect Vermont’s maple crop from fraud.
The move came in the aftermath of a recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration investigation that found a man who had been selling fake Vermont “maple” syrup, when the product contained no syrup.
No, I don’t think people should be allowed to sell ‘fake syrup’. Nor do I believe that Leahy should be wasting folks from Tennessee tax dollars. We don’t make maple syrup here as best I know. This issue is between Vermont, the bad guy, and the FDA. Don’t both the Democrats and Republicans have something better to do, like maybe fix this mess they pushed on us? Sheesh!
Obama’s Failure to Confront the Iranian Threat
Yesterday, America learned that Iran conspired to launch a terrorist attack in Washington, D.C., with a planned assassination of the Saudi ambassador and bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies. U.S. authorities disrupted the plot and have brought charges against the men who planned to carry out the attack, but the audacity of Iran’s actions highlights a disturbing truth: The Obama Administration has done far too little to deter state-sponsored terrorism, and it has utterly failed to confront the Iranian threat.
Not one month ago, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stood before the United Nations General Assembly in New York City and delivered a speech rife with hatred of the United States, September 11 conspiracy theories, anti-Semitism, and Holocaust denials. His diatribe at the U.N. has become an annual ritual, but as we learned yesterday, this year’s performance occurred all while Ahmadinejad’s government was seeking to attack the United States–a fact that President Barack Obama was made aware of in June of this year.
