The Progressive Lynch Mob
Claims Another Victim

FrontPage Magazine, by David Horowitz and John Perazzo

Original Article

Posted By:ScarletPimpernel, 6/26/2013 12:06:16 PM

Celebrity chef Paula Deen is a Georgia-based restaurateur, a self-made woman and national celebrity who has published fourteen cookbooks and hosted popular TV cooking shows on the Food Network for more than a decade. Known for her gregarious personality and folksy southern charm, Deen has performed charity work on behalf of poor people and minorities across the United States. She has donated massive quantities of food, money, and time to Second Harvest, an organization that distributes grocery products to the poor.

I´ll never understand leftists and their so-called logic. They have condemned and almost destroyed Paula Deen for saying one word but yet, Robert Byrd, a Grand Cyclops in the KKK, a man who said ´he would never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side,´ was elected to the Senate for 51 years by leftists. He supposedly apologized and was forgiven by leftists but what Deen has done is beyond the pale and cannot be forgiven.

Her latest cookbook (due out in October) jumped over a thousand percent in sales in the last few days. People are fed up (pun intended) with the PC junk food they´ve been fed for the last few decades.

Perhaps it´s time for American Patriots to give the same dose of medicine to Anti-American Progressives and Communist Liberals.

If they swallow enough of it they may decide not to keep giving it out. They have earned it and deserve it.

Perhaps in the middle of dark Africa would be a good place for a rehabilitation camp.

Normally, there would be no rush to buy a cookbook...would shop the sales at 1/2 price books. However, just to show the rats what they can do with their propaganda and vitriol, might make and exception and buy this one book.

Now that her income has been greatly reduced I am sure her donations will take a hit too. I have no doubt all the people writing negative columns about her will pick up the slack. Paula, I am no fan, I actually have no feeling about you but you are getting the shaft. Sell everything, everything. Take the money and run. Enjoy your life.

Soros/Obama predicated Zippy´s runs for the presidency on race, using it to justify his lack of experience, the refusal to prove his eligibility, while lulling blacks to vote for him as a point of honor and doing everything he can to divide the races!

He has proceeded to slap America in the face, lie through his Marxist teeth while kicking us you know where.

Obama is a traitor deserving every ounce of condemnation we can heap upon him...including referring to him as a "n*****", which I do, although admittedly in select company. But then, I´m not resigning from anything, either!

She is a staunch DEMOCRAT and Obama supporter. I agree this has been a witch hunt but I seem to remember another self-made woman, successful, attractive named Sarah who was treated far worse. Democrats like Paula kept silent. I guess now she knows what it´s like to be subjected to the PC frenzy invented by her heroes, DEMOCRATS. #1, it´s Paula and her family who really need to examine that logic. You are right. It makes no sense.

I stand for a consistent position on constitutional "conservative" principles. Just because she happens to be a Dem I´m not going to suddenly be ok with the PC lynch mob. The left is so shallow I doubt they would even pay attention to her "transgression" if she were 125lbs and only cooked seaweed. I´m suddenly in the mood for chicken fried steak.

This ugly national media flash mob attack is partly the result of technology, which is frighteningly effective in channeling and focusing popular malice in ways unimaginable a few years ago. The more fundamental question has to do with the source of the malice that is the driving energy in this affair. By the pricking of my thumbs/something wicked this way comes. Spotting and condemning racists resembles the witch manias of a bygone era. As convenient objects of fear and loathing and also as scapegoats witches served as lightning rods to attract and temporarily discharge pent up popular malice. Rooting them out, denouncing them, punishing them made people feel cleaner, better, more secure. Sometimes it also proved profitable. Witch hunting has always been provided some people with publicity, power and profits. Career opportunities always exist in such enterprises.

Denouncing racists, like condemning witches, costs nothing. It is cheap grace. One is sanctified by the mere J´Accuse!

If I could come face-to-face with her and have the license to ask a question or two, I would start with, "Have you learned anything"?

Have you learned what kissing Liberal Posterior will get you?

How much more groveling are you going to do?

Do you think it will get you back in the good graces of the Lib/Progs?

Do you want to be back in the good graces of the Lib/Progs?

I don´t have any feeling for Paula Deen, one way or the other. I stopped watching her years ago when it got to the point that I couldn´t stand that cackle one more time --up until then her shows were okay. Better than 99.9% of the trash on television. That said, I think there is something else going on here, other than just her use of a PC Banned word. I don´t know what it is, but I think there is some other motive for what´s going on in her life right now.

Look for another shoe to drop.

If she´s an avid supporter of this Regime, she has nothing to complain about as, historically, Socialists are known to destroy their own.

As far as the charges of racism go, two names: the late Senator Byrd & the late Gov. George Wallace, both Democrats, come to mind. Dems/Progressives are such hypocrites.

As a child growing up in a solidly conservative family I learned that the reason That Word was not to be used was that it was simply rude and impolite.

Those tasty morsels that couldn´t cracked with anything short of a drill press were, yes, Brazil nuts -- never heard them called anything else -- and what you caught by the toe with "eenie-meenie-miney-mo" was a tiger.

So I am both ashamed and proud to confess that the only occasion within living memory on which I´ve uttered That Word aloud was late on the evening of November 6, 2012.

Advertisers have a right to fire her or not. It is their money; their choice. However, when you start calling people racist you have to look around and be consistent. People laud The Food Network for canceling her show. Are these same people supporting CNN who employs the biggest racist of them all -- Al Sharpton. I don´t know, but I would be willing to bet Paula Deen spends more of her personal money on minority charity than the Reverend. The time for apology is past. I think Ms Deen needs to stiffen that back and move forward.

Who is Harrison J. Bounel, and might the name suggest something about possible Obama ID fraud? To be sure, healthcare.gov’s failure to verify Obama’s identity implies nothing whatsoever as to whether ordinary citizens should question it. Undoubtedly, the system glitch represents nothing more, and nothing less, than yet another instance of racist computers conspiring against Obama. The Harrison J. Bounel controversy revolves in part around the fact -- contested by no one -- that a personal information database, housed in yet another presumptively racist computer, linked Obama’s Hyde Park Chicago home address and SSN with the name “Harrison J. Bounel.”

Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad. First, there was the now infamous “sex-jihad” fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a “martyr,” deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

Ezekiel Emmanuel´s Reaper Curve

Ezekiel Emanuel has written extensively, before and after he helped draft ObamaCare, about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

It is a tender, natural and intimate portrait which shows, for the first time, something of the personality of young Prince George. Released on his first Mothering Sunday, this official portrait – in a relaxed style perfectly reflecting the Duke and Duchess’s very modern approach to Royalty – depicts the eight-month-old as a curious, affectionate toddler, gazing into the eyes of the family’s beloved Lupo. George seems devoted to the cocker spaniel and, judging by the adoration on Lupo’s face, the sentiments are returned.

You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S.

For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House. The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage.

I was crying in a bathroom stall at work, wondering what kind of merciless country I lived in. It was nine years ago this month. Looking back at the appeals and legislation surrounding the Terri Schiavo case makes my head spin. At the time, my family and I followed every twist, every turn, and every detail of her family’s struggle to keep her alive. Frankly I’d rather not look back. It only reminds of how messed up our laws were, and how much farther we’ve

A lawless and politically transparent Obama administration just became more so on both counts. The “imminent” decision to implement yet another delay of ObamaCare, reported by The Hill on Tuesday, became reality Wednesday. Americans who have plans that don’t comply with the ObamaCare mandates can keep them through October 2017, provided that their states allow it, according to the latest fixes. In addition, next year’s open enrollment period was extended by a month, and insurers will get additional financial help to offset the costs of claims made by new ObamaCare enrollees.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is contracted to purchase 704,390,250 rounds of ammunition over the next four years, which is equal to a total of about 2,500 rounds per DHS agent, according to a January 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report entitled Ammunition Purchases Have Declined Since 2009. “If DHS were to purchase all 704 million rounds over the next four years, and if they were used by 70,000 DHS agents and officers, it would be roughly 2,500 rounds per agent per year,” David Maurer, author of the GAO report, told CNSNews.com.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."
