Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore says the mass murder of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. is representative of “who we are” as Americans. “I hate to say it, but killing is our way. We began America w/ genocide, then built it w/ slaves. The shootings will continue-it´s who we are,” Moore tweeted on Sunday. Between Friday and Sunday, Moore sent out several tweets regarding the school shooting. On Friday, 20-year old-Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, 20 of them young children, before killing himself. Lanza also killed his mother Nancy at her home.
Comments: What a vile, filthy pig he is. Morons like him who have made millions of dollars because of this country continue to degrade it.
A caller to a radio show pointed out an interesting fact: the Columbine H.S. massacre took place DURING the 10-year ban on ´assault weapons´ sponsored by the lefty gun-grabbers. Are you able to read this Obama, Feinstein, Durbin, Schumer, and ´Red´ Bloomberg, etc.?
I thought all of those lefty-types loved the anarchy of wanton or targeted killing. If they had their way, these little ones would have been aborted five years ago. This is a moral problem, and Michael Moore is at the heart of it.
Big bucks for the big butt when he bashes America. Very few were involved in genocide. Very few had slaves. That matters not to Mr Moore. All that matters to him is that his appetite for hate is fed. Needless to say, he hates a lot.
I remember the good ´ole days when Lucianne was a Michael-fat-tub-of-smelly-goo Moore-free zone. On my list of living people who have done the most to damage this country he is #3, behind only Carter and Obama.
His documentary about Columbine no doubt contributed, by further raising awareness among the mentally unhinged about the vulnerability of schools. Moore, you have blood on your hands here, not to mention the rest of Hollywood and the video game industry, which turned bloody murder into fun and games.
This blivit of fetid fecal slurry is ignoring the fact that when Lanza heard he was about to be confronted with the SWAT team (that´s men with guns, dummy), he stopped and turned the gun on himself. Same thing with the Oregon shooter when he saw the shopper draw his CC weapon.
Hard to get on this thread... anyway, Moore is repeating all the revisionist history the leftists have been using for indoctrination for years. All the lies claiming that all we did was kill off innocent "natives" and how we built this country off the blood, sweat and tears of slaves. No, the truth is slavery was NOT that big in this country--despite what they say. In addition, we began this country as being friendly with most of the "natives". It wasn´t until population grew ad people began moving out to new lands that conflicts began. And it certainly was NOT all one sided as the left would have you believe. One thing that the left will never acknowledge--10,000 years before the "natives" came from Asia over the Bering Straits, people of European descent came over the North Atlantic and settled the east coast. So, technically, Europeans were the true "Native Americans". Of course, we don´t know if those people died off or they were assimilated into the Asian immigrants, but they were .here long before those that claim to be "natives".
Can we also admit that Indians ( I refuse to use the PC "native Americans" ) were happily killing each other in tribal wars hundreds of years before anyone landed at Jamestown? And they weren´t "living in harmony with nature" either. Before Europeans brought horses here the Indians hunted buffalo by stampeding them over cliffs and killing hundreds more than they could possibly skin and eat each time.
I found out in a history class I took in the mid 80´s that there is evidence that the Indians control-burned the underbrush of the forests to make it easier to hunt in them. The teacher was an archeologist who passed on some very interesting information that semester that you never hear about in college or high school.
The left has dumbed down the youth of America to such an extent it is starting to blow back on them and make them objects of ridicule in their own stupidity.
Touché, 22. That is not only a painful reality, but a very relevant one. It is the Culture of Death that is behind the dreadful acts in Newtown. The "root cause," so to speak.
#23 makes another great point, vis-a-vis Michael Moore´s stupid comment. Many native American tribes were committing genocide against each other, long before the White Man set foot on America´s shores.
And don´t forget that European settlers also suffered "genocidal" attacks from the native Americans. This is not to excuse brutal retaliations; but the savagery and cruelty inflicted on white settlers and their children --babies included-- is unparalleled, even by the dreadful Newtown massacre.
If we, as a nation, were as violent as this propagandist for communism says, someone would have punched his clock a long time ago. Meanwhile the slob make millions from other useful idiots who have no idea how rare, free and until recently, vastly wealthy this country is. I dare everyone of the revisionist Americans to spend 2 weeks REALLY living like a Cuban. With his mouth this jerk would be pinned to a wall after a month of crying about how hard it is to cut cane.
I read that Mikey´s from Michigan, at least that´s what he tells people.
Anyway, gluttony is the way of many Americans and Mikey is Exhibit A. I´m sure he´s seen the documentary Super Size Me. He should scarf down another couple dozen donuts and stroke out so nobody has to hear his lame commentary ever again.
I was curious to find that many of the early colonists in New Jersey and Pennsylvania actually bought their land from the Indians. Yes, one can debate whether the price was always fair and the Indians always understood what they were trading for, but the minimal conflict and animosity suggests something far more friendly than the genocide story currently being taught to kids.
On a rainy Tuesday afternoon in Johannesburg, South Africa, tens of thousands gathered at FNB Stadium to pay respects to departed civil rights icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela. (Snip) His remembrance of Mandela’s life was followed by a challenge for people to ask themselves “how well have I applied his lessons in my own life?” “It is a question I ask myself – as a man and as a President,” President Obama continued. “We know that like South Africa, the United States had to overcome centuries of racial subjugation. As was true here, it took the sacrifice
Former CBS newsman Dan Rather is in a unique position to tackle the issues surrounding 60 Minutes following its erroneous Benghazi report, and on Piers Morgan‘s show Monday night, Rather explained what he says is the key difference between his report and Lara Logan‘s: his story was true. Rather echoed points made in Mediaite’s defense of Logan: that it’s very easy to blame the correspondent (being the face of the reporter) and forget that there are people working on these reports behind the scenes who are deserving of similar scrutiny, and that any judgment of Logan’s journalistic bona fides should take
The President famously promised that you could keep your health plan and doctor. For many people, both of those pledges are turning out to be false. And now, you might not be able to keep your medicine, either. There are two reasons why. The first has to do with the higher out of pocket costs patients will face. The second issue may be even more significant. Simply put, many drugs may not be covered at all, and the costs patients incur by buying them with cash won’t count against out of pocket caps. This has repercussions for drug makers with big portfolios
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
On Sunday, a media reporter for the Washington Post said he believed that MSNBC had fired host Martin Bashir because conservatives were relentless and did not quit in hammering Bashir and MSNBC for Bashir´s suggestion that someone should urinate and defecate in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Bashir resigned from MSNBC last week, nearly a month after he made his scripted remarks on his MSNBC program. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, the Post´s Paul Farhi said "the outrage was from the right, the idea that Sarah Palin and, by the way, a woman, obviously was
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
