Breitbart tells counter protesters in Wisconsin to go to hell.
Edited on Sat Apr-16-11 05:22 PM by proud2BlibKansan
Breitbart: "Go to Hell." The "Paid" Palin Protest for America's Freedom? That's the Price of Freedom?

The class warfare hypocrites turned up on buses this morning to attend the paid appearance protest of the tea party, proudly sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, the Koch brothers corporate front group. Hell, the speakers appeared at a podium that had a sign reading, and I kid you not, "I am AFP."

Here's a short clip of John Fund, who claimed the Milwaukee police just released a 2008 investigation of voter fraud that pretty much stole the presidential election, and Andrew Breitbart, the crackpot right wing supporter of video manipulator James O'Keefe. See his coverage here.

In a message heard around the world, Breitbart told the "rude" crowd of labor supporting protesters, protesting his protest:

Brietbart: "You have no right to lecture us on our language. Your Koch suckers business. Go to hell. No serious, go to hell, go to hell. You've been so rude. You're trying to divide America."

1. The response to that is
"If I'm going to hell, then I'm dragging you with me!"

2. He goes on and on about democratic "voter fraud"
in Wisconsin!!! This is the typical preemptive tactic from the right. Scream about something you've done or are doing--gaming elections in WI.

13. Next comes demands to implement strict voter ID laws
we so desperately need to combat all the 'voter fraud 'perpetrated by the Democratic voters.

Clear as glASS.
Breitbart
Kiss my ass.

23. Hahaaa! He attributed the division & class warfare on the union workers who are
fighting for their voices to be heard by a governor who is ramming his extremist policies down their throats. Unbelievable. That is projection at its finest. The teabaggers are just innocent bystanders -- nevermind the fact that their purpose in being there is not to save their jobs, but to further slap the faces of those who are trying to hold on to their workers' rights.

Ironically, the baggers should have had the courtesy to thank unions for making it possible for them to have the weekend off from work to be able to attend their let's-hate-our-neighbors rally.

They are despicable. And nothing says "corporate sponsored" more than that super-sized teletron set up for them.

7. Hard to hear over the sound of my horn,
but I stopped... "Did he just say, 'go to hell?'" ...and then my horn started honking again, so I didn't hear much after that. Oh yes, I'm sure the teabaggers standing near me, who thought they had found a cherry spot for viewing their little protest, were really thrilled to be listening to my horn honking for 2 1/2 hours (or whatever it was).

24. Hey
I'm so nice that I stopped blasting my horn long enough to ask the teabagger next to me if he was ok, when he started shivering so hard I thought he might be convulsing. He said he was alright, just cold. Oh well, maybe now cold and deaf, because I then went back to my horn-blowing. :D

By the way, he was an Ohio teabagger. Too bad he traveled all that way, and didn't get to hear any of the rally. :evilgrin:

16. Someone please please make a video of the teabagger behavior
that we have had to endure for the past few years. You know, begin with videos of countless town hall meetings where they drown out anyone they disagreed with, then continue with the countless videos of their threatening signs and behaviors, then finish with the videos of teabaggers becoming physically violent to squash anyone else's voice or opinion. You know, like the video of Rand Paul's people head stomping a young women who disagreed with them.

I'm furious that no one in the media calls out conservatives for their blatant hypocrisy.

21. John Fund was not there by accident
He's been pushing the voter fraud angle for years and was heavily involved in the push to tie it to ACORN.

He's also been associated with the Collegiate Network, which gave O'Keefe his start in right-wing college journalism:

http://politicalcorrection.org/factcheck/201001270004

Talking Points Memo reported that three of the four men arrested for allegedly attempting to wiretap Sen. Mary Landrieu's office were involved with conservative student newspapers. Stan Dai served as editor-in-chief of George Washington University's GW Patriot, TPM added that, "O'Keefe founded The Centurion at Rutgers and Basel launched The Counterweight at the University of Minnesota-Morris." All three papers are supported by the Collegiate Network.

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/collegiate-networ...

The Collegiate Network (CN) calls itself "The Home of Conservative College Journalism," and provides financial and technical assistance to student editors and writers of conservative publications at colleges and universities. . . .

CN hosts an annual Editor's Conference featuring right-wing media celebrities, such as John Leo; Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes; Wall Street Journal editorial writers John Fund, William McGurn, and Robert Bartley; Thomas Sowell; Robert Bork; and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Campus Outrage Awards, referred to as the "Pollys," are nominations by right-wing students to expose "radical campus activists" who "undermine the traditional curriculum, implement speech codes that persecute politically incorrect students, enforce group-identity politics with sensitivity seminars, and treat students with a double-standard emanating from a multiculturalist perspective." The Wall Street Journal has called the Pollys "a great public service."
