I love how he refers to this as a "fringe" movement when 99% of the commenters under the article agree with the secessionists and think the author is a RINODIABLO commie plant.

These same pundit trash spent the past 30 years riling these people up to a level of hatred toward their fellow Americans that should be reserved for your worst enemies. You hear story after story coming out of how this extremist rhetoric has ruined lives after the election. fark this guy and the other shiatbags like him who are suddenly trying to calm people down.

I don't know, the Right does a pretty good job of tarnishing and marginalizing itself all on its own.

Might the reason for the tarnishing the Right stem from the Right's penchant for tarnishing and marginalizing all other parts of society that do not lick their psycho-conservative shoes when they throw their political temper tantrum du jour? Sauce for the goose and all that.

FTA - Step 3: The trap works because the media exposure brings it to the attention of a bigger audience and suddenly 675,000 on our side overreact and do the same dumb thing.


And -THAT- is the essence of everything that's wrong with conservatism. That's how it invariably ends up off in bugnuts radical la-la-land on every. single. issue.

1.) Because conservatism is nothing but "anti-liberals-ism" at its core, conservatives must always choose the anti-liberal position.
2.) Because conservatives must choose the anti-liberal position, distinction is achieved by being the MOST anti-liberal conservative.
3.) Because someone ALWAYS reaches for that title in the attempt to gain that distinction, the news invariably covers it... liberals invariably criticize it, and 675,000 of the truest-bluest-most passionate conservatives the world has ever seen invariably jump out of their farking chairs to shriek "hell yeah!!! me too!!! fark them liberals!!! I hate them liberals enough to shiat my own pants!!! Watch, I'll show you!!! See!?!?!?"

Best take care of your idiots and oust them from your party if you don't want to be known by their reputation.

Unfortunately for the GOP, they have taken their idiots and given them leadership positions.

Three Crooked Squirrels: He's basically saying we mocked the libs that said they'd leave the country in 2000 and 2004. We should mock the cretins in our party who are doing something similar now.


What people like him don't want to admit is that the cretins are a large percentage of the GOP's voters. These are the people that think Obama is a muslim communist out to destroy America, and they can be counted on to show up to the polls and vote. The GOP can't alienate them, or else they'll never win another election again.

While it's not fair, sometimes we really do have to take responsibility for our own and even those who claim to be our allies.

I think it's very telling that the author says it's "not fair" that they have to take responsibility for their own. The concept of responsibility apparently shouldn't apply to them. At all. Ever. Because that's not fair.

LarryDan43: Stop letting the crazies in your party drive the bus. Did you think if you let the moderates among you drive the crazies would suddenly vote for Obama?


The problem is that the crazies attack the moderates who are driving; look at how many "moderate" Republicans have lost primary challenges to the Tea Party in the last two elections.

Hundreds of thousands of conservatives Muslims do something dumb, and of course the liberal right-wing media uses it to tarnish and marginalize the Right Islam as a whole.

It's actually kind of a shame the repubs didn't make Santorum or Bachmann their standardbearer this year. Then there would be absolutely no doubt that it was hyper-right wing extremism that lost the election and we wouldn't have to listen to another four years of "No! We lost because we didn't go far enough to the right, not because we tried to appeal to the center!" Four more years of this crap...

zappaisfrank: While the guy makes a valid point about how easy it is to take a handful of crazies and use them to typify one entire side of the political spectrum, the part that rings hollow is that the right does the SAME GODDAMNED THING to the Democrats and liberals.


Not only do they do exactly that, but the whole Brietbart site is dedicated to the pursuit of that very thing.

Republicans love to point fingers and say how Democrats/Liberals are all lazy mooches who want handouts, never mind the fact that the moochers make up a very very small portion of the population and that there is no concrete evidence linking Democratic party affiliation with mooching. But they will whine endlessly when their party gets labeled as a bunch of crazy, bible thumping zealots perfectly willing to resort to violence to get their way. At the same time, Republicans are beholden to Reagan's 11th Commandment (Thou shalt never speak ill of fellow Republicans) so their refusal to marginalize and condemn the crazies within their ranks equals complicity in the madness they don't want anyone to notice or connect to them.

Can't have it both ways, chuckleheads.

And here I thought fairness was a liberal ideal - at least that's what conservatives keep saying.

Well, when your fellow wingnut web sites like WND, Townhall, and American Thinker keep crying "The States are seceding!!!" you can kind of see why we're making fun.

To the late Breitbart's credit, he did disagree with Joe "Porn Stache" Farah on how far to push the stoopid, especially on the Birfer thing.
