Liberal Lie of the Week: Right Wing Extremists Have Killed More than Jihadists Since 9/11

Peter Bergen: Liberal Nutcase.

Peter Bergen: Liberal Nutcase.

On the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen has published a story claiming right-wing extremists have killed more Americans than have jihadists since 9/11.

Bergen writes “According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11…By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda’s ideology have killed 23 people in the United States since 9/11.”

Part of the gimmick here is the limitations Bergen and NAF have drawn around this comparison, starting with the decision to only look at attacks since 9/11. Obviously if you leave out the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil that helps the outcome. NAF also excludes Americans killed abroad so, for instance, the four Americans killed by jihadists in Benghazi don’t count.

The list Bergen uses to back his claim was compiled by The New America Foundation. However, the list seems to have some questionable choices. For instance,  NAF includes Joshua Cartwright on the list. In 2009, Cartwright was reported to police after beating his wife. Police attempted to arrest him for domestic violence at a local shooting range. A shootout ensued in which two police officers were killed. NAF apparently includes Cartwright on its list of terrorists because his wife remarked that he was “severely disturbed” by the election of Barack Obama. It also included Andrew Joseph Stack as a “right-wing extremist”. Stack flew a plane into an IRS office in 2010. Stack’s inclusion is surprising given that his manifesto/suicide note included attacks on the “monsters of organized religion,” GM executives, health insurance companies, wealthy bankers, “presidential puppet GW Bush,” the “American nightmare” and, finally, capitalism itself with a positive nod to the communist credo.

On the other hand, the NAF list fails to include a number of attacks which seem connected to radical Islam. For instance, this 2004 murder of a Jewish student by a Saudi who had become more religiously conservative prior to the attack. After slicing the victim’s throat, the killer fled to a mosque. The list also omits numerous “honor killings” by Muslim radicals.

Attkisson: CBS Stopped Benghazi, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare Investigations Because of Political Interests

Sharyl Attkisson 500

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told host Bill O’Reilly that CBS news management called her a “troublemaker” and stopped her from continuing investigations on Benghazi, Fast and Furious And ObamaCare because of  “well financed campaigns of special interests, political interests”

“It kind of goes from hot to cold in one day, sometimes. Where they are asking you to pursue something heavily and then it’s almost as if a light switch goes off and they look at you all of the sudden like why are you bringing this story? ”

“Broadly there are overarching concerns about, I would say I would say  just fear over original investigative reporting. there is unprecedented, I believe, influence on the media, not just the news, but the images you see everywhere by well orchestrated and well financed campaign of special interests, political interests and corporations. I think all of that comes into play”

“Noah” disgusts Christians, annoys Jews and thrills the Biblically illiterate.

Pictured are people running form the theater in disgust...we think.

Pictured are people running form the theater in disgust…we think.

John Nolte

Let’s give the Devil his due: using the story of Noah to twist Christianity into something it is not, is a genius piece of propagandizing that is sure to lead many away from God under the mistaken belief that through left-wing environmentalism they are coming closer to Him.

Using a $135 million, atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky, and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.

Aronofsky’s  ”God” is only disappointed, disgusted and ready to be rid of man for the single sin of  hurting the environment. And hurting the environment is defined in the film as strip-mining, eating animal flesh, hunting, and even plucking a flower no bigger than a dime because “it’s pretty.”

Ben Shapito

There are other problems with the film, of course. The score, by Clint Mansell, is a monstrosity, thundering two notes over and over again in a poor imitation of Hans Zimmer (it’s actually the same two notes as the Batman trilogy, just reversed). Half the action is difficult to see thanks to the accursed shaky-cam Aronofsky loves so much. And while the performances are universally good, Aronofsky’s bizarre special effects and plot choices (Seth impregnates Ila in the middle of the forest while looking for his brother, who has run off and faces death) had the audience in my theater laughing out loud at several points.

But the real problem is moral. God is Gaia in this version of the Bible. Mankind is the universal sinner, and only the animals are innocent. The film finishes with shots of pairs of animals that could have come from a National Geographic special. Which leads to this question: if God just wanted a really nice zoo, why did He bother creating mankind in the first place?

Apparently, “homosexual” is now the new “N”-word

Censorship 500

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.”

The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.”

Buttressing their argument? A weekend piece in the Fashion and Style section of the New York Times entitled “The Decline and Fall of the ‘H’ Word.” In it, reporter Jeremy Peters likens the term to using “colored” to address black people and asserts that the word contains “the ring of disapproval and judgment.”

But an utter lack of evidence of the term’s recent use — or of any indication that the word is anything other than innocuous — didn’t stop Media Matters from accusing Fox News of using the term to “marginalize, pathologize, and and [sic] marginalize” homosexuals.

NYT reporter: Obama administration ‘the greatest enemy of press freedom’ in a generation

New York Times reporter James Risen called the Obama administration “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation” on Friday, explaining that the White House seeks to control the flow of information and those who refuse to play along “will be punished.”

Poynter reports that Risen made the remarks while speaking at Sources and Secrets conference — a meeting of journalism , communication and government professionals held in New York City. The foreign policy reporter, who is currently fighting a fierce court battle with the federal government over his protection of a confidential source, warned that press freedom is under serious attack in today’s America.

In a speech kicking off the conference, Risen claimed that the Obama administration wants to “narrow the field of national security reporting” and “create a path for accepted reporting.” Those who stray from that path, he cautioned, “will be punished.”

The result is a “de facto Official Secrets Act,” Risen explained, making the current White House “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation.” And the media has been “too timid” in pushing back against the onslaught.

Jason Collins says only one NBA player has taunted him for being gay…and how many people gave Tim Tebow a hard time?

jasoncollins2 500

Jason Collins, who became the first openly gay player in NBA history when the Brooklyn Nets signed him earlier this season, says that only one unnamed player has taunted him for his sexual orientation.

“One player, one knucklehead from another team,” Collins told the New York Daily News. “He’s a knucklehead. So I just let it go. Again, that goes back to controlling what you can control. That’s how I conduct myself — just being professional.”

…meanwhile…

Stephen Tullock, a linebacker for the Detroit Lions, personified the anti-Christian attacks when he mocked Tebow after sacking the quarterback. As Tebow picked himself up off the gridiron, Tullock started “Tebowing” – a mocking prayer on bended knee.

But the attacks on Tebow started long before he started playing professional football. NBC Sports reported on an incident that occurred at a Scouting Combine. Tebow suggested the group pray. Another player told him to “shut the f*** up.”

Amidst plunging ratings Jimmy Fallon attempts a truly desparate move: Not being a DNC puppet

Much has been made about new “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon’s supposed liberal inclinations, but Wednesday night he had no problem ripping Obamacare and needling President Obama over his handling of Ukraine.

Fallon’s humorous assault took the form of a fictional phone call between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Look, don’t you see what you’re doing though? You’re forcing people to accept something that the majority of them don’t even want,” the actor playing Obama tells Putin, referring to Russia’s annexation of the Crimea region of Ukraine.

“Yes,” responds Fallon, playing Putin. “In Russia we have word for this: Obamacare.”

Liberals Elated: Kim Jong Un Wins North Korea Election With 100% Turnout, 100% Approval.

kimjongun

We all remember how excited liberals were where Saddam Hussein “won” re-election with 100% of the votes. They kept comparing that to George W Bush winning by barely 50%. (as if Saddam’s re-election were some how in any way legitimate)

The results are in and Kim Jong Un will continue as supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. According to the state-controlled media reports coming out of Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un, the only candidate on the ballot, won unanimous approval to continue his reign.

It also appears every eligible voting citizen of North Korea’s estimated population of 25 million did indeed vote. Miraculously, not a single citizen of the People’s Republic stayed home nor disproves of their “dear leader.” State-run media declared, “This is an expression of all the service personnel and people’s absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader Kim Jong Un as they single-mindedly remain loyal to him.”

North Korea’s citizens did not have a choice of who to vote for, but instead, had an up or down vote. It is not clear what would actually happen if the majority of North Korean people voted “NO” on the ballot, as only one candidate, Kim Jong Un, was allowed to run in the election.

For those who may doubt the authenticity surrounding the most recent elections, look no further than the two 2013 annual reports concerning press freedom in North Korea released by Reporters Without Borders and Freedom House.

It should be noted that Kim Jong Un has to actually threaten reporters in order to get them to lie for him. American reporters enthusiastically lie for Obama with no coercion at all.

Former ThinkProgress writer describes White House ‘censorship’

obama secret 500

Zaid Jilani had just published a story — “one of the most successful things [he] had ever written at that point” — which indicated troops levels at the end of Obama’s Afghan “surge” would actually be higher than at any point in the George W. Bush administration. And it came complete with a graph, which congressional opponents of the war took into committee hearings on Capitol Hill.

The Obama administration was furious.

“Phone calls from the White House started pouring in,” Jilani claimed, “berating my bosses for being critical of Obama on this policy . . . Soon afterwards all of us ThinkProgress national security bloggers were called into a meeting with CAP senior staff and basically berated for opposing the Afghan war and creating daylight between us and Obama.”

And there was an ethical component to CAP’s compliance with the White House, as well.

“It confused me a lot because on the one hand, CAP was advertising to donors that it opposed the Afghan war,” Jilani noted. “In our ‘Progressive Party,’ the annual fundraising party we do with both Big Name Progressive Donors and corporate lobbyists (in the same room!) we even advertised that we wanted to end the war in Afghanistan.”

“What that meeting with CAP senior staff showed me was that they viewed being closer to Obama and aligning with his policy as more important than demonstrating progressive principle, if that meant breaking with Obama,” Jilani explained.
