A POST-THANKSGIVING CORNUCOPIA OF LOONY LIBERAL LEFTOVERS
Following a Thanksgiving during which Rat ate two turkey dinners, (with two different sets of family members), and a turkey sandwich as the clock struck midnight, he has survived to present Black Friday’s edition of Rat Droppings from Planet Looney Tunes.
While you may not find these morsels to be as tasty as leftovers from Thursday’s feast, I’m confident you’ll enjoy them; after all, who doesn’t enjoy a healthy helping of loon from time-to-time? (Except loons themselves, of course.) Grab your knives and forks, folks:
Planned Parenthood Gives Tips to Promote Abortion at Thanksgiving: Yes friends, as American families gathered around their dining room tables to give thanks for their blessings Thursday, what better opportunity could there have been to promote abortion, and share tips with loved ones on how to defend the killing of unborn children?
Planned Parenthood of New York City, keenly aware that most Americans would be thankful for its guidance on keeping their Thanksgiving abortion discussions light and non-confrontational, offered the following helpful tips for talking turkey on its website:
“The holidays are upon us! Going home or getting together with relatives for the holidays is always a stressful time, but if your family members are the type who regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood, you know that this holiday is going to be a doozy.” (How many of you have family members who “regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood”?)
“Luckily, we have some tips for surviving those awkward conversations. So read on, and bring some diplomacy and understanding to the table along with that pumpkin pie.” (Pumpkin pie and abortion – doesn’t get any better, does it?)
1. Avoid bumper-speak talk. A slogan might work for a poster or a button, but in a conversation it just leads to a heated back-and-forth. Try to steer clear of catchall phrases; they very rarely lead to common ground or change anyone’s mind. (Hysterically, the article goes on to give the reader canned responses to questions.)
2. Remember the big picture. Debating when life begins or whether or not abortion is federally-funded may get you nowhere. Instead, focus on your shared values and the big picture; for instance, talk about how you believe everyone should be able to afford to go to the doctor, or how the decision about when and whether to become a parent is a personal one. (So the logical solution to “I don’t want to be a parent” is to kill you fetus?) You never know, you just may find yourself actually agreeing with your relatives. (However, you will not find your pro-life relatives agreeing with the murder of unborn children.)
3. Know your facts, but keep the conversation more global. It’s good to clarify misinformation; for example, the misconception that emergency contraception ends a pregnancy – but staying there can cause a fight. Instead, try to clarify, and then transition back to the underlying value of why you believe what you do. (For example: “I’m thinking about ME here – not my fetus!”)

Democrats use Fast and Furious as an excuse to push for tighter gun-control laws. Are the loons predictable, or what? In a play right out of the Rahm Emmanuel “Never Let a Good Crisis go to Waste” playbook, Congressional Democrats are attempting to exploit Eric Holder’s deadly fiasco as an excuse to rally support for gun control:
“This hunt for blame doesn’t really speak about the problem,” whined super-loon, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D-Cal.), at a recent Senate Judiciary hearing on Fast and Furious. (Um, actually it speaks exactly ”about the problem,” senator.)
“The problem is, anybody can walk in and buy anything – 50-caliber weapons, sniper weapons. [Anyone can] buy them in large amounts, and send them down to Mexico. So, the question really becomes, what do we do about this?” (Actually, the question is: “What did Eric Holder know and when did he know it?” The blatant hypocrisy of these people knows no bounds.)
Ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, (D-Md.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, (D-N.Y.), recently introduced a firearms-trafficking statute, which is currently stalled in the House Judiciary Committee.
Republicans are pushing back: Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said simply, “I get it, I’d want to change the subject too if I were them. I’m happy to have a conversation about broader gun laws, but we’re going to do it after Fast and Furious.”
The Regime’s Fast and Furious operation has resulted in the deaths of at least 200 Mexicans and at least 11 violent crimes in the U.S. The program intentionally funneled firearms into the hands of straw purchasers; the operation’s architects made no apparent attempt to track the firearms. Officials still can’t account for more than 1,000 weapons.
“We Are Atheism” wants “non-believers” to come out of the closet. In its latest recruiting drive, We Are Atheism is drawing on the experience of the gay and lesbian It Gets Better project. (right down the the purple website!)
The website admonishes atheists to “stand up, speak out and be counted.” The campaign seeks to encourage those who don’t believe in God to “come out” and open up about their views:
“It is time for us to put up our videos and change the face of atheism. We want people to see we are normal people who have children and lives and do good in the community. The whole point of the website is to let younger atheists know you will face persecution. But through us knowing each other we can all help,” says Amanda Brown, one of the project’s co-founders. (“Persecution,” huh? perhaps Ms. Brown could also draw on the experiences of Christians in the Middle East, or Jews around the world.)
A secondary objective of the campaign is to “change the perceptions that believers have about atheists.’” Really? I would suggest that We Are Atheism resist the temptation to invite Bill Maher or Christopher Hitchens as guest speakers for any future atheist get-togethers.
Al Sharpton: ”We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” Damn, I love Al Sharpton. Can you imagine Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck making just one of the comments that race-baiter Sharpton has gotten away with through the years and still be on the air? The race-baiter extraordinaire’s actual quote:
“White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it. (The rev certainly has a way with words, huh?)
Then of course there was the time Sharpton tried to discourage blacks from buying fried chicken from Chinese-owned restaurants or watermelons from Korean-owned shops. Or the time he was in Harlem railing against then-mayor, David Dinkens, while constantly referring to Dinkens as “that n*gger.”
Before you (loons) come back at me with “I can’t believe you’re bringing up comments that Sharpton made in the 90′s,” stop and think about it: Name one white conservative who has said anything even remotely close to the racial nonsense that Sharpton – and other black “leaders” -have gotten away with for decades. Just one. (I’ll be here.)
Hell, white liberals can even get away with a racist comment here and there – and the sock puppets of the Obama Media Group turn the other cheek – as long as they dutiful toe the party line. Remember Harry Reid’s description of Obama during the 2008 campaign?
Reid was wowed by candidate Obama’s
teleprompter reading ability gift of oratory and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama – a ‘light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Seriously? Don Imus even thinks that’s racist. Imagine what would’ve happened if Rush Limbaugh had said it.
Liberal hypocrisy is alive and well folks. It seems that it always will be.
Crackers and honkeys are so thin-skinned, aren’t they?
