PostSubject: Conservative Blogger Has Had Enough With the Right   12/2/2009, 5:48 pm

"Little Green Footballs" is a popular conservative blog that was often quoted by the righties. Now they've had all they can take and say No More!...

Why I Parted Ways With The Right

Opinion | Mon, Nov 30, 2009 at 6:49:45 pm PST

1. Support for fascists, both in America (see: Pat Buchanan, Robert Stacy McCain, etc.) and in Europe (see: Vlaams Belang, BNP, SIOE, Pat Buchanan, etc.)

2. Support for bigotry, hatred, and white supremacism (see: Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter, Robert Stacy McCain, Lew Rockwell, etc.)

3. Support for throwing women back into the Dark Ages, and general religious fanaticism (see: Operation Rescue, anti-abortion groups, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, the entire religious right, etc.)

4. Support for anti-science bad craziness (see: creationism, climate change denialism, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, James Inhofe, etc.)

5. Support for homophobic bigotry (see: Sarah Palin, Dobson, the entire religious right, etc.)

6. Support for anti-government lunacy (see: tea parties, militias, Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc.)

7. Support for conspiracy theories and hate speech (see: Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Birthers, creationists, climate deniers, etc.)

8. A right-wing blogosphere that is almost universally dominated by raging hate speech (see: Hot Air, Free Republic, Ace of Spades, etc.)

9. Anti-Islamic bigotry that goes far beyond simply criticizing radical Islam, into support for fascism, violence, and genocide (see: Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, etc.)

10. Hatred for President Obama that goes far beyond simply criticizing his policies, into racism, hate speech, and bizarre conspiracy theories (see: witch doctor pictures, tea parties, Birthers, Michelle Malkin, Fox News, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and every other right wing source)

And much, much more. The American right wing has gone off the rails, into the bushes, and off the cliff.

I won’t be going over the cliff with them.

Wow. It's really telling to see a conservative blog like LGF jumping ship.

At this point, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the crazies on the right form a third party.

I think the "National Tea Party convention" Feb 4th - 6th in Memphis is going to be their opening shot. Both Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann are the headlining speakers.

Quote :
Tea Party Nation is pleased to announce the First National Tea Party Convention. The convention is aimed at bringing the Tea Party Movement leaders together from around the nation for the purpose of networking and supporting the movements’ multiple organizations principle goals. This event will be co-sponsored by other national groups that believe in a responsible and limited federal government that is responsive to all the people. National Taxpayers Union, American Majority, Smart Girl Politics, and SurgeUSA are just a few of the organizations who will be on hand to contribute their time and talents to this convention.

Special Keynote Speaker for the event will be Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska (2006-2009) and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential Nominee.

Looks like:

Glenn Beck-Inspired Tea Party Candidates Step Up To Oust Veteran GOP Lawmakers

I hope they keep at it. Keep touting that purity pledge that so many GOP politicians fail to live up to.

They unleashed the teabaggers, and now they're destroying their own party; let 'em lose more like they lost NY's 23rd.

Heard on SNL "Weekend Update" last night...The National Tea Party Convention will feature the world's largest gathering of misspelled signs Laughing

Jim Bob, the extremey over-taxed Tea-Bagger here, is on his cellphone right now pronouncing "amnesty" without the "n" in conversation with another true patriot. It's a special code they use to help ferret out pinko commies.

So if those are all the things the LGF's stand against I want to know what it was that made them conservative in the first place.
