Democrats and the First Amendment


Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.
Lucky for me that flag-burning, anti-religion, Karl Marx devotee assassin who killed a Bush appointed judge and a little girl didn't use a guillotine. Else Brady would be filling that loop-hole in the First Amendment too.  As it it, let's relive a golden moment that's brought so much happiness to so many for so many years now.

He was also enamored of Selma, a sleepy river town he likens to “an inland Charleston or Savannah.” After a few visits, he bought the Harmony Club for just under $100,000, paid in full, and moved in three months later, on Jan. 1, 2000.  [Slide Show]

Over the weekend I watched a Mecum car auction where a 1962 Bentley in cherry condition could not meet the $8500 reserve.  Twenty-five years ago I'd have been all over both of these, given the chance.

Ride With The Devil

Ride with the Devil
Between The Ice Storm and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, director Ang Lee made Ride with the Devil, a beautifully crafted and viscerally thrilling film about the American Civil War, told from an unorthodox point of view and starring Tobey Maguire, Skeet Ulrich, and Jeffrey Wright as conflicted Confederate sympathizers.

Ride With The Devil

I had not yet in 1999 become so fed up with Hollywood that I began to ignore it, as is currently the case.  So, how then did I miss even hearing about Ang Lee's  Ride with the Devil?   I stumbled across it on CinemaxHD yesterday (see current schedule).   The dialog, which faithfully captures the period's educated class patois,  is so rich you can eat it with a fork; the scenery in HD breathtaking.   And here's another amazing thing,  I was struck by the dialog in one particular scene, about Lawrence Kansas, and planned to go back and capture it for presentation on YouTube.  Guess what?  It's this very scene.  What a delight was this film. And if you need further recommendation, this comment [Treatment of slavery and racism in this film] by some whiny pasty-faced race-centric liberal  asshat ought provide it.

Note:  This does not appear to be the Director's Cut which runs for 148 minutes ( 10 minutes more than the original release).

Blaming Palin ...

Professor Reynolds:
Usual Suspects
To be clear, if you're using this event to criticize the "rhetoric" of Mrs. Palin or others with whom you disagree, then you're either: (a) asserting a connection between the "rhetoric" and the shooting, which based on evidence to date would be what we call a vicious lie; or (b) you're not, in which case you're just seizing on a tragedy to try to score unrelated political points, which is contemptible. Which is it?

I understand the desperation that Democrats must feel after taking a historic beating in the midterm elections and seeing the popularity of ObamaCare plummet while voters flee the party in droves. But those who purport to care about the health of our political community demonstrate precious little actual concern for America's political well-being when they seize on any pretext, however flimsy, to call their political opponents accomplices to murder.

Where is the decency in that? -

Call for Political Violence from MSNBC [Video]

Posted by Van Helsing at 8:09 PM | Comments (3)

Now that it no longer has a complete monopoly on the media, the collectivist Left may have a hard time getting the public to swallow its meme that Gabrielle Giffords was shot because conservatives voice violent rhetoric. If you want to hear violent rhetoric, listen to Ted Rall call for a socialist revolution from atop a soapbox provided by the same MSNBC that tries so appallingly to blame the Tucson tragedy on its ideological opponents:

I began Sunday with Rush Limbaugh suggesting that Democrats, "by virtue of the details in this piece [White Flight], they're gonna have to go out and basically promise communism.  ... "  If there's a more despised, full-of-hate for-America communist than Ted Rall, I can't think who it would be. They're off to a good start. 

Of course Liberals are entirely derivative when it comes to public strategy and policy statements (Obama is "studying Reagan") because,  if the public understood what and who they were there would be no Democrat Party. Which is happening as we speak.

Since Clinton used the OKC bombing to great advantage, it must be a good gambit, is what they're thinking.  I'm not suggesting this shooting was staged for that purpose (not discounting anything either), but there's no doubt in my mind that the Moveons, KOSers, MSNBC cadre, sense an  OKC opportunity here.  That it is by now manifestly evident that one of their own perped this thing  means not a tot to them.  Not if they can convince enough people that the gunman was seen having lunch with Rush Limbaugh, and the gun was registered to Sarah Palin.  Which is what they're doing as we speak.

It won't work, so be ready for another Reichstag fire.
