Unintentionally funny look at the recent Beverly Hills Tea Party gathering hosted by a really ditzy blonde lady:
Ann-Marie Murrell proves that not all Californians are liberal kooks as she covers the recent Beverly Hills Tea Party Rally.
I think Ann-Marie proves a lot of things in this video… Things she never intended to prove!
I met Pat Boone on a shoot once and the impression he left on me was that he’s a bit of a dimwit. His conversation was completely insipid and I just kept nodding and saying noncommittal things like “Yep, I hear ya, Pat!” and shit like that. Affable guy, but basically just… a fucking idiot.
What sources of information does he utilize beside WorldNetDaily, I wonder?
The results of the recall elections of the WI state reps might have been mixed, but that was then and this is now. Just a few months later, the political headwinds have shifted suddenly. I don’t think things look too promising for the continuing political career of Scott Walker. It’s time to make it hot for this bastard.
Organizers in Wisconsin will have 60 days to collect 540,208 signatures as they announce plans to kick off an effort to recall Governor Scott Walker, the man whose extreme levels of union-busting intransigence led to hundres of thousands of protesters descending on the capital, in a standoff that riveted the nation and led to a resurgence of pro-labor activism. One group, United Wisconsin already has over 200,000 promised recall signatures through its organizing efforts.
On the Ed Show last night, Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate explained why, after deliberation, the party along with groups of activists forged during the protests had decided to go forward with this action, feeling that they couldn’t wait any longer to try to recall Walker. Video of their conversation is embedded below.
If the drive is successful, elections could potentially be held in Spring 2012. Find out official information here. (It’s a testament to the popularity behind the recall that there are quite a few unofficial recall Walker sites flooding the web already!)
I’m not anti-cop and I never have been, but there’s quite something disturbing about what happens in this video.
Via Joan Walsh at Salon, who calls this the “worst” moment of Occupy Wall Street so far:
On Monday night, Boston police broke up the Occupy Boston protest, and in the process, they tore down an American flag and knocked down at least one American military veteran.
A group of Veterans for Peace stood in a line in front of the Occupy Boston protesters, and after the police warned the entire group to disperse, a line of cops marched out of the darkness and seemed to move on the veterans first.
John Nilles, a 74-year-old Vietnam veteran, told the Boston Globe he was knocked down during the arrests. “I have absolutely no use for police anymore,” he said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do.” You can hear protesters on the video screaming over and over, “We are veterans of the United States of America.” It’s chilling.
The video is dark, so it’s hard to see exactly what’s happening, but when the American flag starts to totter, it’s like the Iwo Jima moment in reverse.
What compelling reason was there for this eviction to occur in the first place? These folks weren’t hurting anyone, they were just being good citizens. They’re standing up for themselves.
This is an extraordinary time in American history. The police officers who were involved with this action need to ponder which side they’re on.
At the ultra-conservative Values Voter Summit over the weekend, Glenn Beck, eager to demonstrate his old skool soothsayer prowess, claims he foretold of the “violent left” coming two years ago, but only succeeds in looking like a man on the wrong side of history…
UPDATE: Here’s Beck from his show today saying that the Occupy Wall Street protesters will “kill everybody”!
