Birther Madness

6 01 2011

Gonna be a long two fucking years.

An apparent member of the birther movement seated in the gallery of the House of Representatives on Thursday interrupted a reading of the Constitution. The woman yelled out “Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!” as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) read the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution.

DADT

12 10 2010

Good.

A federal judge has ordered the Defense Department to halt all enforcement worldwide of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy regarding gays in the military. […]

The Justice Department had urged Phillips, who sits in Riverside, Calif., to limit any relief in the case to the Log Cabin group or to the named plaintiffs, but the judge rebuffed that request. Her order applies to all U.S. military operations across the globe.

Obviously going to get appealed, but a good step in the right direction.

“All f-ggots must die”

It is all being investigated and I am sure some low level staffer with fall upon his own sword.

. . [Beck] ridiculed first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to get people to eat healthier snacks like apples or carrots.

“Get away from my french fries, Mrs. Obama,” Beck warned. “First politician that comes up to me with a carrot stick, I’ve got a place for it. And it’s not in my tummy.”

Hate Crime – Seattle Redux

31 08 2010

I’m sure none of this has anything to do with the demagoguery over the Park 51 site.

A 35-year-old Seattle man is facing assault and hate crime charges following allegations that he accosted a clerk at a Queen Anne convenience store.

“After the suspect struck (the clerk) with his fist he said, ‘You’re not even American, you’re Al-Qaeda. Go back to your country.'”

Who Could Have Predicted, And Such Things

29 08 2010

You never saw this coming.

Authorities are investigating a fire that damaged at least one construction vehicle at a Tennessee site where a new mosque is being built.

Federal investigators won’t say whether they believe the fire early Saturday was intentionally set at the suburban Nashville project, which has faced vehement opposition.
