Mika: Wayne LaPierre´s
´Stupid´ Arguments ´Something
Sarah Palin Would Say´

Newsbusters, by Mark Finkelstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/4/2013 10:05:35 AM

Sarah Palin´s profile might not be as high as it was a few years ago, but she apparently still serves as a convenient punching bag for the left. On today´s Morning Joe, as Joe Scarborough railed against the allegedly "stupid" arguments NRA leader Wayne LaPierre made on Fox News Sunday yesterday, Mika Brzezinski muttered "something Sarah Palin would say." Consider that Palin had been in no way quoted, nor had her position on gun control been discussed. This was nothing more than a gratuitious shot at Palin, obviously still a bogeyman for the MSM.

Mika, Mika, Mika, you my dear are the stupid one. I swear I could blow out a candle through your ears.

With libs, IF they disagree with someone, they must be stupid. Not the other way around.

The leftist retards are absolutely terrified of Sarah Palin and the NRA! Both entities represent conservative and traditional values of the United States which is abhorrent to these people. As a result they will never miss an opportunity to slam or slander Ms. Palin or the NRA.

Forbes magazine has an article and a survey (with pretty pictures, Mika, so even YOU can understand it) on how the NRA is winning the PR battle against gun control.

So it ain´t working, Mika. Keep insulting. Most Americans are afraid of what this Administration is doing to obliterate the 2nd Amendment.

The hysterical left does not understand that the issue is not guns, per se. It is about the Constitution. They don´t understand that their leadership is really on a quest to take away citizen´s rights (more than just the Second Ammendment), in order to advance a far-left political agenda. They don´t understand that rights are taken away a little at a time, using rhetoric that sounds so logical and plays to emotions. They also don´t understand that guns are not the only issue used for the quest. Peoperty rights, environmental laws, regulations, and all the other things. The Low Info Voters are asleep, while they are slowly losing their rights.

Mika is not fit to clean Sarah Palin´s gun! I love it that the left is so afraid of Palin,Cruz,Rand Paul,DeMint,Walker,Ryan,Rubio,Perry & West. Our main challenge in 2016 will be Hillary Dillary & someone better bring up her college thesis on Alinsky & do it today. We also better start on 2014 for the Senate. All you 3rd Party people better wake up & stay with only conservatives who can explain to America how to save our Republic. I wish Palin could do it again but we may have to do with Rubio since Rand Paul is good but personality is not great. Tea Party & prayers are needed!

Mika also apparently doesn´t see the need to take note of current events. If she did, she would know that an armed security guard at a school prevented an armed crazy from shooting up a school just last week. And guess who said that armed security at schools would be a good idea Mika. Why it was none other than the same Wayne LaPiere that you just slandered. The same one who´s ideas your demi-god Zippy said would never work, just two weeks ago. Now go back to the liberal echo chamber and listen to your own brillience.

The left heard loud and clear that Sarah will once again be pushing to primary liberal Republicans in 2014. This means Tea Party folks will once again be called to duty. The left hates the fact that Sarah hasn´t been destroyed. In their sick minds, if you destroy her and you destroy the Tea Party. Rove and company also heard Sarah´s plans and share Mika´s sentiments entirely. Ted Cruz scares them all.

Speaking of physics, let´s borrow the Thought Experiment process. Imagine that Mika B. is in all respects exactly as she is now, but her name is Mary Barlow. Now -- exactly how much TV time would Mika-as-Mary have had in 2012?

Oh, it appears the Alinski´s rule #13 is being used against LaPierre...

RULE 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

LaPierre needs to recognize this and tell the world that is what the Libtards are doing. Hit back using the same tactics...nothing stops attacks quicker than making the attacker accountable, by name!

Mika is just such a pathetically sad caricature: a 50-something aging feminist-- whose own daughters drive her bananas--the Ed McMahon to goof-ball Joe Scarborough. I can´t wait to see the psychic melt-down when her frantic race against time catches up with her. Anyone get a gander at Gloria Steinem lately? Mika: meet your future self. Sarah Palin will grow old gracefully. You, my dear, will undoubtedly continue to play the fool, and end up looking like a clown as well.

Just checking in to see if the usual Sarah detractors are defending Mika. The article notes Sarah had not been quoted or her position on gun control discussed, but that´s one of the wonderful things about Sarah, you don´t even have to ask what her position on gun control is - she´s been living it for years.

U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan asked Sulaiman Abu Ghaith to turn and face the potential jurors before asking if any knew him. None did. The judge drew silence as well when he asked if there was anyone who had never heard of al-Qaida. The questioning was part of a process designed to shrink a jury pool of dozens of prospective

A rogue street artist has ambushed the 86th Academy Awards with a slew of street art posters poking fun at President Barack Obama and the Oscars. The posters, of unknown origin, feature the Oscar statue with Vladimir Lenin´s head and the title "OCZARS," referring to the proliferation of "czars"--powerful officials with no congressional oversight--in the Obama administration. The "O" is the Obama campaign´s familiar symbol. Last month, another series of anti-Obama posters appeared across West L.A. to coincide with the Northern Trust Open PGA golf tournament.

The Washington Post’s editorial board strongly criticized President Barack Obama’s approach to foreign affairs on Sunday. The paper’s board wrote that the president’s foreign policy doctrine is “based on a fantasy” and the dynamics that govern balancing behaviors among great powers still matter, “much as we might wish they did not.” They added that Obama’s policy of reducing America’s global military influence is destabilizing and harmful to American national security. The editorial began by summarizing Obama’s world view and the realities he believes should govern geopolitics. They added that the world’s intellectual class has largely bought into the notion that

Kiev, Ukraine- As Ukraine´s new leaders accused Russia of declaring war, Russia´s Prime Minister warned Sunday that blood could be spilled amid growing instability in the neighboring nation. Kiev mobilized troops and called up military reservists in a rapidly escalating crisis that has raised fears of a conflict. And world leaders pushed for a diplomatic solution. In a post on his official Facebook page, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called the recent ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych a "seizure of power." "Such a state of order will be extremely unstable," Medvedev said. "It will end with the new revolution.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
