Backing up similar rhetoric from conservative windbag Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh blames the left wing for Eric Garner’s chokehold death by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Limbaugh appeared on Fox News Sunday to bemoan the “grievance industry” that is “literally ripping our fabric apart.”

Limbaugh said that the aftermath of the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases called for inspirational leadership from President Barack Obama, who instead was amplifying historical racial divisions for his own political gain.

“There’s no acknowledgement of any the progress,” Limbaugh said. (Actually Obama explicitly acknowledged racial progress in an interview with George Stephanopoulos two weeks ago.) “If you listen to these people, the president, the mayor of New York, you’d think it was two hundred years ago. You’d think we hadn’t even started working on these problems, and that’s not true.”

Limbaugh said he no longer believed the Garner case involved a chokehold (“What are you talking about?” Wallace asked) and that the incident would not have occurred were the left not “so eager for tax collection.”

“How many cops descended on that situation for cigarettes?” he said. “How many people smoking marijuana did the cops ignore on the way to Eric Garner?…I think the real outrage here is an American died while the state is enforcing tax collection on cigarettes! It’s absurd. People talk about the left, they want a big state, they want a powerful state. Well, here it is.”

During an appearance on “CNN Tonight,” Ann Coulter decried Eric Garner’s death and the grand jury decision to clear Officer Daniel Pantaleo, by blaming it on money, specifically the collection of cigarette taxes.

Watch Rush Limbaugh blame left for Eric Garner’s death:

Wyclef Jean and Santana’s official anthem for the 2014 World Cup games is now available on Vevo. The anthem, “Dar um Jeito” (“We Will Find a Way“), also features Avicii and Alexandre Pires.

I guess, if you are with conservative windbag Ann Coulter on being a soccer hater, this song, which is in Portuguese, is “garbage” and is indicative of the “moral decay” of America, thanks to Liberals. By the way, Coulter is defending her screed after she sparked ridicule.

Personally, I just want to move to the beat….

Dar um Jeito” will be performed live during the World Cup closing ceremony at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on July 13. The song is available as a single and as one of the tracks on the FIFA World Cup album, “One Love, One Rhythm.”

SMH: Ann Coulter Compares Immigration to Rape at CPAC News Conference

Conservative windbag Ann Coulter made a shocking comparison during a news conference with Phyllis Schlafly at CPAC, as she compared immigration to being raped:

“My favorite network for humor is MSNBC. They’re always sneering, demographics are changing. No this isn’t a natural process,” Coulter said. “It’s like you’re being raped and the guy is telling you ‘my penis is in you.’ No, you’re raping me. Demographics are changing by force. There is nothing natural about it.” Source: Right Wing Watch

Ann Coulter also attacked MSNBC for “celebrating the browning of America.” This is all part of the minority outreach of the Republican Party. Wow.

Conservative windbag Ann Coulter went in on MSNBC host Ed Schultz in a major way on Twitter, after he said Republicans were too afraid of him to debate him one-on-one.

Ann Coulter couldn’t ignore his comments. She tweeted: “Invite me on your show, you lying p*ssy.” Wow, that’s so professional and becoming of a lady. Shorter version, she’s telling Schultz to put his money where his mouth is. Such uncouth language fits in nicely with the GOP 2016 narrative.

Ed Schultz exact words: “Republicans, they’re afraid of me, they don’t want to talk to me, whatever.” He said he’s willing to engage with people on the right if they ever agreed to be on his show.

Every now and then conservative windbag Ann Coulter makes a valid point, but then she goes back to being her onerous self. She wrote an article stating the National Rifle Association has gone to bat to blacks since the end of the Civil War, even taking a stand when civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was denied a gun permit because of his race. I have to be honest, I don’t care much for the whole gun debate, but I found Ann Coulter’s article pretty riveting. That doesn’t mean I agree with her on her positions on the issues, but she made a valid point that the Democrats and their then-offshoot, the Ku Klux Klan, were a thorn in the sides of blacks at the height of the struggle for racial justice and equality. But I guess the tables have turned now since that fringe element that has now swung to the Republican camp.

Here’s an excerpt from Ann Coulter’s article entitled, “Negroes with Guns” (note the title, which is meant to be provocative):

Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks. This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Ku Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance.


In 1640, the very first gun control law ever enacted on these shores was passed in Virginia. It provided that blacks — even freemen — could not own guns.

Chief Justice Roger Taney’s infamous opinion in Dred Scott v. Sandford circularly argued that blacks could not be citizens because if they were citizens, they would have the right to own guns: “[I]t would give them the full liberty,” he said, “to keep and carry arms wherever they went.”


After the war, Democratic legislatures enacted “Black Codes,” denying black Americans the rights of citizenship — such as the rather crucial one of bearing arms — while other Democrats (sometimes the same Democrats) founded the Ku Klux Klan.


Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.  Source

So, while Ann Coulter’s screed about the NRA going to bat for blacks in the early days is quite riveting, let’s fast-forward to 2012 and the Trayvon Martin case, to see if her argument is strong. George Zimmerman, who murdered Trayvon Martin, has a right to bear arms, but the “stand your ground” law behind which he seems to be hiding doesn’t seem to be a plausible reason for why he shot the teen. You see, how one defines being threatened varies from person to person. Therein lies the problem with the “stand your ground” law. Besides, he formulated the opinion early in the encounter with the teen that he was up to no good and “they always get away.” He was told quite clearly not to follow him, but he did. He should have gotten in his car and sat there as the 911 dispatcher told him.

I am beholden to neither the Republican or Democratic parties. I find the Democratic Party has taken the black community for granted and the Republican Party doesn’t even try to appeal to the black community, but that’s for another debate. So, whether the NRA gives a hoot about blacks or not is quite irrelevant in this case. It doesn’t have a bone in this dogfight, other than the “stand your ground” law must be amended or abolished because it cannot adequately define what constitutes a threat to one’s life.  Nice try Ann Coulter, just remind blacks of what a group of whites did for them during one of the darkest periods in American history. Let’s be real. The NRA didn’t do all that you claim for the love of blacks. Further, I don’t believe one bit that KKK is making a comeback. Gone are the days of Jim Crow and seeing black men hanging from trees without public outrage and pushback.

Ann Coulter Says Andrew Breitbart Death “Like John Lennon Dying”

English: John Lennon

Ann Coulter Says Andrew Breitbart Death "Like John Lennon Dying" (Wikipedia)

Ann Coulter tells the Daily Caller that death of Andrew Breitbart like “John Lennon dying.” Um, fans of John Lennon everywhere should be crying foul to that comparison. Somebody has been drinking way too much right wing Kool-Aid.

“Who knows what else he could have done,” she told TheDC. “It’s like John Lennon dying, what other music might he have produced.”

Imagine if Andrew Breitbart could just walk in John Lennon’s shoes for a minute. Oh well, I guess I am just a dreamer…..

Drudge Report Continues Attack on Newt Gingrich Over Bill Clinton Affair with Monica Lewinsky

Drudge Report Continues Attack on Newt Gingrich Over Bill Clinton Affair with Monica Lewinsky

Matt Drudge and his lackeys continue attacks on Newt Gingrich, particularly his stance on former president Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, though he was cheating with his jump-off-turned-wife Callista Gingrich. This attack also includes the latest revelation that the Gingrich campaign never offered witnesses to ABC News to refute claims his ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, made that  he wanted an “open marriage.”

The Drudge Report also stepped up attacks on Newt Gingrich’s claims of a close working relationship with former president Ronald Reagan. It’s all very interesting to watch the infighting among conservatives over a presidential nominee to meet President Obama in November. I will agree with Ann Coulter, for perhaps the second time in recent years, a Newt Gingrich candidacy will mean a second term for President Obama. So, bring Newtie on!

Here are the links from the Drudge Report:

NEWT 1986: The Reagan administration has failed, is failing…

You see, Matt Drudge couldn’t give a sh*t about Bill Clinton, he is just pushing this mess because he can’t stand Newt Gingrich, for whatever reason. Well, I love watching the Republicans trip over one another. This only plays in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.

Rep. Barney Frank On Jay Leno Show, Calls Out Rush Limbaugh’s Addiction To Painkillers (VIDEO)

Rush Limbaugh will be foaming at the mouth on his show tomorrow morning after Rep. Barney Frank landed a low blow during his appearance on the “Jay Leno Show.” He called out the conservative nutjob’s well-documented addiction to painkillers.

Jay Leno asked Frank, if Frank had to chose-, who he’d rather have dinner with: Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Anne Coulter?

Frank’s reply? Limbaugh:

I guess of the three, I would take Rush Limbaugh, because it would be very painful and he would come with the painkillers, which he always has.

Ouch that hurts. Rush Limbaugh, if you live in a glass house, don’t throw stones. People can be just as critical of you as you are of them. Er, Barney, painkillers weren’t all Limbaugh was addicted to. Remember the Viagra scandal?
