Hey, remember when we had ...

... all those anti-Iraq War protests back in the day? Remember how the Left was spouting how "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" and all that?

Well now, on the other hand, we see this, this, this, this and this. And what's the Left say about protests now?

They're all "domestic terrorist wannabes."

You can't make this stuff up.

UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers! Thanks, Glenn!

Our local gaggle of First State moonbat bloggers can thank me later. In the meantime, it's great watching their pathetic "arguments" get torn to shreds by new -- and reasoned -- visitors. Not that they had much in terms of arguments to shred in the first place ...

UPDATE 2: DE Liberal accuses me of "lying" in this post since they say they never mentioned tea party protestors in the post I linked to. They DID link to this post from DE Politics about US states claiming 10th Amendment protections from federal government overreach and accused THEM of being "domestic terrorist wannabes!"

Let's see ... one is a protest against federal government overreach, the other is a protest ... against federal government overreach ...

Keep the heat on - a few hundred tax and Obama protesters now turn into a hundred thousand later. If you want to emasculate the Left and stop reading snotty comments about people who actually ARE patriots, stop subscribing to their papers, watching their news shows and clicking on their websites. Many of their papers and news channels are starting to fold up - again, keep the heat on!

On the left, drama of expression and clever phrasing count for more than mere accuracy and honesty, you fools.

Great post, the Instalaunch is well-deserved.

And anyone who doesn't support Obama's economic program is a traitor.

"And anyone who doesn't support Obama's economic program is a traitor."

Good thing Frank Schaeffer doesn't live in 1944 France. As a "collaborateur," La Resistance would strip him, shave his head, and then parade him through the street while carrying his ugly half-Democrat baby. And that's merely what would happen if Frankie-Poo was LUCKY.....

Always repeat this to any leftist who irritiates you :

To offend a conservative, tell a lie.

To offend a leftist, tell the truth.

Also, this superbly funny picture is market tested to induce the maximum amount of agony in leftists, as it is an indisputable truth.

You are too optimistic.

Remember that black people will ALWAYS vote Democrat no matter how far left the candidate is. This is because white leftists have rigged black schools so that the only thing taught is 'vote Democrat'. No math, no science, no English. Just 'vote Democrat, vote Democrat, vote Democrat'.

Thus, 90-95% of blacks vote Democrat, no matter what. Absolutely nothing will ever change this.

Here are 10 left-wing myths that most Americans have accepted as fact. A debunking is also included. This goes to show how deeply programmed leftism is into the culture.

The Tea Parties are great. But we need to identify targets and go after them.

This means people like your local Dems who support Obama, the local ACORN and their
subsidiaries, the media apologists in your local paper or media outlet.

Of course we need to be positive when we go after them. No hate, but we need to be in their face.

Also, try and indentify the local Obama networks he has created with his millions in foreign campaign money. If possible, we need to volunteer, infiltrate, spy on them and maybe generate counter operations and erode their technology networks.

This is not only a political war, but it is a cultural war also. We must fight to win.
If not they will still move to control the media, the language of the debate, our money we have earned, while wrecking free enterpise. Believe me , they want to destroy capital, the hard work we all have put into our lives and families. We must fight these people and never quit.

They've already ruined me. I can't wait five years to recoup my losses.

Savy, I don't think it's so much that we need to "identify targets". Rather, we need to present one--that is, we need to be a Brave New Cause that the media can latch on to.

Obama was swept into office because the media fell in love with the story of the brave maverick, the true outsider, the literal dark horse, the Magic Negro who would absolve all of America's sins. Now they need a new story--and what better than Meet The New Boss Same As The Old Boss? If we can present a ready-made, neatly-packaged narrative along those lines, then the media will eat it up and crap it back out, and in 2012 it'll be Thompson/Palin FTW.

Hube,

Instapundouche linked your post with a huffington post which made mine seem like I was calling your tea party treason - when in fact I think the tea party's are merely asinine. I was calling armed revolt against the government treason. What do you call it?

Also, with regard to my "arguments" get torn to shreds by new -- and reasoned -- visitors" You should read the comments that got caught in the spam filter. If by "reasoned" you mean "vile" you have a point.

One liberal blog is hardly "The Left." Pretty thin, Rhodey. I agree, though, that political parties' views on protesting change radically when power shifts. For instance, how would those Tea Party protesters react to someone telling them to love America or leave it? Same problem.

"Instapundouche linked your post with a huffington post which made mine seem like I was calling your tea party treason"

Wrong, dolt. They added it as a [totally] separate update.

"I was calling armed revolt against the government treason. What do you call it? "

Then why did you link to Burris' post? Where in his post was mentioned armed revolt?

"You should read the comments that got caught in the spam filter. If by "reasoned" you mean "vile" you have a point."

You got some vile comments? Awww, poor baby. That fits the DL modus operandi perfectly, then! You should feel RIGHT at home, Trust Fund.

"One liberal blog is hardly "The Left." Pretty thin, Rhodey."

Unfortunately, this phenomenon is not limited to just one liberal blog. The one is question, however, is responsible for some of the most outrageous commentary you'll ever see (especially regarding the last 8 yrs.), yet now it's done a complete 180.

Oh, and hey Jason? Not that you're often fond of telling the truth anyway, but I liked how you LIED about me banning you over at DE Liberal.

I mean, if I banned you, how did you manage to comment here?

You're aren't banned. You lied. I wonder if you'll correct the record, liar.

(I oughta ban you for that right now, anyway...)
