Cranks, Haters, Bigots No
Longer Welcome in the GOP

Atlantic Wire, by Elspeth Reeve

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2013 10:10:46 AM

Fox News and the Republican Party, while still technically distinct entities, are moving to purge figures who are so controversial they´re damaging the conservative brand, Politico´s Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen report. An anonymous GOP strategist told Politico there is a deliberate effort to "marginalize the cranks, haters and bigots — there’s a lot of underbrush that has to be cleaned out." The strategist requested anonymity because the crank marginalization is not yet complete and he or she doesn´t want to inflame the cranks. New York´s Jonathan

Comments:
What an outrageous headline. That would make you assume that "cranks, haters and bigots" were previously welcomed in the GOP. These were all promoted and manipulated to look that way by the corrupt media. I look forward to the day when they write an article about all the haters we hear from every single day in the Democrat party. s/o

If the cranks, haters, and bigots were expelled from the ´Rat Party, it would collapse.

There is a recognizable handful on this board who would agree with that headline, all the while bragging about their big tent approach and commitment to limited government.

The top down, one size fits all, as sized by entrenched career republican and democrat third tier political hacks is what Rove and his supporters are promoting. Pretty steep learning curve with his followers.

Rockfeller wingers are the new paleorepublicans.

What a ridiculous article. "...marginalize the cranks, haters and bigots..." Is this language a Conservative would use? Of course not. It´s liberal-speak.

So we´ve got the Atlantic quoting Politico who is quoting an anonymous source. Give me a break. This is a liberal slime attack on Brent Bozell and the unnamed Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.

The last I checked, every crank, hater and bigot I am familiar with are in the Demon-RAT Party.

Michael Moore, Helen Thomas, Robert KKK Byrd, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc, etc, etc. The list could go on all day.

Of course "cranks, haters and bigots" were never welcome in the GOP, as opposed to the Dems where they are abundant and revered. It´s risky to let The Atlantic tell us who we are.

What bothers me most about this headline is the opposition has appointed themselves to decide what is cranky, hateful, and bigoted. As if one has never heard of a self righteous liberal bigot.

To call Brent Bozell a ´hater´ just shows how silly the use of this word has become. I can´t think of a conservative that I respect more than him. I guess to disagree is to ´hate´ when it comes to liberal logic.

Liberals seem to regard all disagreement with their politics as "hate speech." The more one disagrees with them, the more one is a "hater" or a crank or a bigot. No decent, rational, moral person could possibly disagree in substance with liberal ideology.

Of course, to come right out and say and admit this, even to themselves, is not possible. It sounds too. . . well, intolerant, dogmatic, even bigoted. But deep or not so deep down, I think this is really what most serious liberals actually believe: there is no justifiable reason for anyone not to agree with them about politics.

I have no idea who these alleged "haters" and cranks and bigots who are to be "marginalized" may be. Something tells me it may be those who express the most disagreement with the liberal brand of politics. Liberals would like to have a Republican party that is much more. . . liberal. Of course they would. But perhaps they have lost sight of the big picture, i.e. the two party system. Or maybe, like Obama, they are just chafing at what they regard as the unnecessary and immoral delay such a system causes them in implementing their programs which, as everyone but the "haters" knows very well, are only aimed at creating a better, fairer, safer world.

If this just little Elspeth indulging in creative fiction, it looks like the GOP Establishment has a pretty good team of "haters" themselves. It also looks like their goal is a 20% to 80% loss to the Democrats in the next presidential election instead of their usual 47% to 52%.

Watching "The Mortal Storm" right now. The early scenes of intense intolerance for anything but the Nazi way of thinking feel just like being at any moonbat leftist social gathering today.

At the rate we´re going, I will feel no surprise when the later scenes of violence and suppression begin.

Unfortunately Ms. Reeve, your February 7th thesis received an "F". Now come up to my desk, put on the dunce cap and go stand in the corner.

Resuming the discussion class, let´s talk for a few minutes about the true "haters" of this world...For starters, the card carrying Dark Siders who regard the wholesale slaughter of 55,000,000 innocent little souls as a "constitutional right."

This article is nothing but a smear piece, whether the anonymous person is real or a fabrication of the writers of this article. I have been a Republican since Goldwater and have been to three tea party group meetings in my lifetime. I have never met a crank, hater or bigot in any of the above venues. In fact, I´ve known Democrats who have made racist remarks, since most of my acquaintances are liberal Democrats.

I find that the people who are generally labeled cranks, haters, and bigots are not those things. While the ones accusing them generally are.

Is there a worse hater than Al Sharpton? Or Jesse Jackson? Antisemites both. And Joe Biden certainly falls into the bigot/crank category over and over again with his highly insensitive yuk-ing it up with reporters comments that just keep coming even after the criticism of the Indian mini market escapade. And Obama with his disparaging "cling to guns and religion" comment certainly qualifies him as a bigot.

Well, #11, they are both socialist groups. So you would expect to see tons of similarities. Of course, America isn´t post-WW1 Germany - and the socialists are just about at the end of their stay here in this country, one way or another, though they don´t realize it.

McClatchy News [DC], by Marisa Taylor    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The nation’s spy satellite agency failed to notify authorities when some employees and contractors confessed during lie detector tests to crimes such as child molestation, an intelligence inspector general has concluded. In other cases, the National Reconnaissance Office delayed reporting criminal admissions obtained during security clearance polygraphs, possibly jeopardizing evidence in investigations or even the safety of children, according to the inspector general report released Tuesday , almost two years after McClatchy’s reporting raised similar concerns. In one instance, one of the agency’s top lawyers told colleagues not to bother reporting confessions by a government contractor of child molestation, viewing

Senators and governors from nine western states held a first-ever summit on Friday, April 18, in Salt Lake City, to win more control over the vast swaths of federal land within their borders. The summit had been planned before the standoff between the federal Bureau of Land Management and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy a week earlier focused national attention on the plight of the federally occupied West. Rural residents there are being stripped of their livelihoods by federal agencies, which take orders from Washington, D.C., and don’t understand their ways of life. Their discontent also boiled over at a

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus joined Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy on Wednesday and tore into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Calling the ranking Senate Democrat “dirty,” Priebus alleged that Reid is violating Senate ethics rules by using his official website and twitter account for attacks on the Koch brothers. Priebus told Doocy that his committee has sent a letter to the Senate Ethics Committee detailing Reid’s office’s alleged violations. “Here is the problem: Harry Reid is so dirty and so unethical that some of these things have to happen,” Priebus asserted. “You have to put a

In response to Dinesh D’Souza‘s accusations that he was unfairly investigated for campaign fraud, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan categorically denied that the pundit had been selectively targeted due to his criticism of Barack Obama, calling his claims “entirely without merit” in a recent court filing. D’Souza currently stands accused of using acquaintances to donate money to Wendy Long, a long-time friend challenging Kristin Gillibrand‘s Senate seat, with the understanding that they’d be reimbursed in the future.

A worrisome new memo from the Council on Foreign Relations indicates that China, without warning, is poised to knock out U.S. satellites, especially those used by the Pentagon. "The threats to U.S. space assets are significant and growing," said the "contingency planning memo" titled "Dangerous Space Incidents." It also cited Iran, North Korea, space junk and electromagnetic pulse as threats. Around since 1921 and co-founded by former President Herbert Hoover, the Council on Foreign Relations is a thoughtful group, making its warnings about an attack on U.S. satellites a real concern. As President Obama visits Asia this week, the memo suggests that

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
