As America holds her breath, gripped by the mind-numbing realization that the government by the people, for the people, of the people, may very well be irrevocably broken, the focus is on libeling, slandering and destroying the millions of Americans who stand against this socialist putsch. The American people are overwhelmingly against this government takeover of 20% of the economy.
Tens of thousands took to the great lawn yesterday after a year of similar peaceful actions to right a government gone off the rails. The peaceful, patriotic millions who marched over the course of the year were virtually ignored by the media and certainly ignored by the President. Big media only deemed fit to cover the people's revolution to libel and sexually smear them ("tea baggers").
This campaign of destruction culminated yesterday when a specious charge was made that a protester shouted "ni**er" at the Congressional Black Caucus. Color me skeptical. I am not sure why the Black Congressional Caucus deliberately chose to walk through the crowd as they shouted "kill the bill," but it sure sounds like a set-up. And if someone shouted something so grotesque, it was either a plant, an infiltrator, or a freak who attached himself to a group that wants no part of him. It in no way reflects the millions of capitalist Americans standing up for their country. I have been to enough of these protests to know. These protesters are the salt of the earth. The best of America, our salvation, if it is to be had.
The Washington Post: “Members of the Congressional Black Caucus said that racial epithets were hurled at them Saturday by angry protesters who had gathered at the Capitol to protest health-care legislation, and one congressman said he was spit upon. The most high-profile openly gay congressman, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), was heckled with anti-gay chants.”
The media is frenzied, like vampires to human blood. And the lefty blogs like the Puff Ho (HQ for Jew-hating incitement to genocide) is epileptic with joy. We've been down this road before with the Puff Ho; they have concocted slander against the tea parties before (watch that Atlas vlog here).
What it is, is a degenerate tactic to drive the national dialogue away from what is really important (the rout) to a mendacious discussion about the "racist," "homophobic," "tea baggers." Janeane Garofalo laid out this strategy in April 2009 when she said that the tea partiers were "a bunch of teabagging rednecks," adding that "this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up."
Let's go to the videotape:
As for Barney Frank alleging that he was called a faggot -- I prefer to call him what he really is, a liar. Where is his outrage at the term "tea bagger"?
Is it a coincidence that after a year of millions marching against this ugly leftist power grab, that on the day before the vote both racist and homophobic slurs were allegedly hurled? Hmmmmmmmmm.
Those of us battling the left are used to the libel and slander directed towards us as a means to eliminate the truth of our message, by destroying our credibility. The daily drumbeat of lies and smear is so relentless that it has lost its sting. It's like water off a duck's back. But for the first time, America is getting a taste of it. They are being smeared and slandered. And the silver lining here is that the American people will never trust the democrats or big media again.
Big media will go down in flames as a result of this. Even when I went searching for a picture of the Capitol lawn yesterday, I could only find images on twitpic and the blogs. The only thing that came up for DC protest on yahoo was the anti-war protest (here). That's how corrupt and criminal the media is.
If the putsch is successful, we will remember:
Fox News reports:
Unlike the Democrats’ original plan, this rule will not utilize the “deem and pass” method on the Senate bill. While the rule handles BOTH packages, it provides for separate debate and votes on both measures.
Then there will be a procedural vote, called “Moving the Previous Question.” Ignore this. After that, there will be a vote on the rule. Probably not before 4 pm. If the House doesn’t approve the rule, it can’t advance to the underlying issues at hand.
UPDATE: Well said by a Lucianne blogger (hat tip Katherine)

"America is now occupied by a hostile foreign power. This power rejects the freedoms and protections enumerated in our Constitution, and codified in the Bill of Rights. It rejects the laws, rules, customs and traditions of the United States. It rejects the very principles underlying our nation's founding. It assails our natural rights, while denying they exist. It rejects any need for the consent of the governed. It spits in the face of the will of the people. It recognizes no limitations on its authority to abuse the American citizen.
This is not representative government.
This is Tyranny.
UPDATE: 2pm: Nancy Pelosi takes a page from the agitators of the Black Congressional Caucus and unnecessarily walks through the anti-demcare protesters with a giant gavel, trying to incite those great Americans. It was of course, without incident.
The Demo-rats are ugly, ugly demagogues. Video to follow.
