Memorial Day 2010: “Earn this. Earn it.”


Another sociopath takes a dirt nap

The victim could have been any unarmed citizen in California; unfortunately for this SOB it was an off-duty cop that was — fortunately — carrying concealed… one dirt nap coming right up!
[Shaun Adam] Vilan, who was on parole after spending six years in state prison for two assaults, had a lengthy history of ganging up on people and attacking them, according to court records. His convictions included two unprovoked assaults in 1996 and 1998, which involve Vilan smashing two people in the face with beer bottles.
…And on and on and on (more incidents listed in the article).

Shaun, I hope you and Jesus had it all worked out.

Kagan on Speech

From the CNSNews article

“This does not mean that the government may never subject particular ideas to disadvantage. The government indeed may do so, if acting upon neutral, harm-based reasons.”

That sounds strangely familiar, and one of the comments nailed it…

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.” –Orwell, “1984”

As another poster opined…

I’ve been suspicious of Kagan, but kept an open mind. Now that I see her willingness to sophistry, I am convinced that she is indeed ethically unqualified for the bench.

Contessa Brewer disappointed NYC bomber not with TEA Party

Brian Maloney has an audio snapshot of Contessa Brewer (MSNBC) as a guest on the Stephanie Miller show:


CONTESSA BREWER (7:06): I mean the thing is is that and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.
And so there was part of me was really hoping this would not be the case that here would be somebody who is not the defined. I mean he’s accused he’s arrested you know I don’t want to convict him before it’s time to do so. He’s the guy authorities say is involved. But that being said I mean we know even in recent history you have the Haitari(sic) militia from Michigan who have plans to let’s face it create terror.
That’s what they were planning to do and they were doing so from far different backgrounds then what this guy is coming from. So, the threat is not just coming from people who decide that America is the place to be and you know come here and want to become citizens. Obviously this guy did.
Sorry to disappoint, Contessa, and glad you feel you can so easily convict other groups (Hutaree militia) who have done nothing.  Not to defend a fringe, non-representative element like them here, just pointing out the irony.  Your reaction was predictable, but the public running of your mouth was a pleasant surprise.  Thanks, Love!
