Breakfast Scramble (Monday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
New York Slimes goes Orwellian.  To oppose murdering Islamic radical terrorism, to be a radical.  Sure Pinch.  From the Slimes [1]:

Operating largely outside traditional Washington power centers — and, for better or worse, without traditional academic, public-policy or journalism credentials — Ms. Geller, with a coterie of allies, has helped set the tone and shape the narrative for a divisive national debate over Park51 (she calls the developer a “thug” [2] and a “lowlife”). In the process, she has helped bring into the mainstream a concept that after 9/11 percolated mainly on the fringes of American politics: that terrorism by Muslims springs not from perversions of Islam but from the religion itself. Her writings, rallies and television appearances have both offended and inspired, transforming Ms. Geller from an Internet obscurity, who once videotaped herself in a bikini as she denounced “Islamofascism,” into a media commodity who has been profiled on “60 Minutes [3]” and whose phraseology has been adopted by Newt Gingrich [4] and Sarah Palin [5].

So how many people has Ms Geller killed?   I don’t know of any.   Yet for reasons beyond comprehension by mere mortal men, the Slimes seems to think  that defend traditional American values and oppose Jihadist terror is somehow radical.   Lay off the Kool-Aid Pinch.    Is there some magic duty on reporting other than to clearly express the truth?   I don’t know of any.  Do you?

Commentary from John Hinderacker, Powerline [6]:

Today’s New York Times [7] has a lengthy and not entirely unflattering profile of Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs [8]. While the paper describes Pamela’s rhetoric as “venomous,” her main offense seems to be that she is a citizen activist:

Of course the Slimes employed such stalwart defenders of truth and freedom as Maureen Dowd,  Paul Krugman, and the fablist  Walter Duranty.

So Eric, what do we have to do in ordered to get slimed?

Dope from Hope, too stupid to realize he is s liberal, see Mediaite [9] for video.  Eight years of a Dope from Hope in the White House was more than enough.    Mike Huckabee is essentially a pro-life liberal.

Karl Rove calls Obama a liar, video:

Hat tip and more: Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit [10].

As I see it, there is one problem with Rove’s accusation of the Obama administration is  lying.    In order to actually lie, you have to be smart enough to know the truth.   The Obama administration lives in their own fantasy land.
