The Rising Tide of Democratic Hate Speech

While some conservatives have engaged (and indeed continue to engage) in some overheated rhetoric when taking issue with Democrats and their allies in the media and blogosphere, I wonder if anyone at the Republican National Committee (RNC) has ever denounced Republicans in the hysterical rhetoric of Democratic National Committee (DNC) communications director Brad Woodhouse, who yesterday told POLITICO

The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize. . . .  Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize – an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride – unless of course you are the Republican Party.The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore – it’s an embarrassing label to claim.

Gosh, sound like he’s talking about his own party. And seems he, like many on the left, is living in the past.  That 20% number is from the early days of the Obama Administration and before the Democratic incumbent made clear he had no intention to fulfill his campaign commitment of a “net spending cut.”  Serious polls now show a narrowing of the party gap.

Contending “the DNC needs a smarter class of public-relations flacks,” Ed Morrissey takes Woodhouse to the woodshed:

Woodhouse argues (almost assuredly uncomprehendingly) for a fuehrerprinzip where the head of state must never be questioned or criticized, lest one become a traitor to the fatherhomeland.  Will Woodhouse also start labeling late-night comedians like Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien terrorist sympathizers for their (very) occasional ridicule of His Reverence?

I don’t think any official of the RNC ever made a comparison as nasty as Woodhouse’s when taking issue with then-President George W. Bush’s critics who offered barbs far more mean-spirited and ad hominem than the GOP’s rather restrained critiques of the incumbent’s recent honor (most in the same vein as criticism offered on the left and in the MSM).  To be sure, a few bloggers did so, but none has directly say that the party has really thrown its lot with the terrorists.  As Morrissey puts it, that really “takes the cake.”

Obama to Receive Sustained Standing Ovation at HRC Dinner

As many of our readers know, in just a few hours, President Obama will be addressing the Human Rights Campaign annual dinner tonight. While there might be a handful of boos from the principled lefties in that largely liberal audience, expect the Democrat to receive a sustained standing ovation.

Such a reception will be on a par with his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize, for accomplishments anticipated not results achieved.

They’ll be honoring him for his good intentions and partisan affiliation–because to all to many on the gay left, that’s all that really matters.

BBC: The DEBATE Over Global Warming Has Just Begun

Wait, I thought liberals claimed you would be committing crimes against humanity or the equivalent of denying the Holocaust if you questioned the religion of Global Warming?

I guess the BBC decided to depart from the Earthist Scripture this weekend:

For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

<…>

So what can we expect in the next few years?

Both sides have very different forecasts. The Met Office says that warming is set to resume quickly and strongly.

It predicts that from 2010 to 2015 at least half the years will be hotter than the current hottest year on record (1998).

Sceptics disagree. They insist it is unlikely that temperatures will reach the dizzy heights of 1998 until 2030 at the earliest. It is possible, they say, that because of ocean and solar cycles a period of global cooling is more likely.

One thing is for sure. It seems the debate about what is causing global warming is far from over. Indeed some would say it is hotting up.

Aside from the bad grammar, this is quite a liberal media breakthrough.

It also kinda sucks when the ACTUAL WEATHER gets in the way of the environmental talking points, eh?

Solid Majority of Americans Support Same-Sex Civil Unions

Welcome Instapundit Readers!!

Perhaps the most interesting thing in the latest Pew Research Center survey on public attitudes toward gays was the juxtaposition of these two numbers.  While 57% of Americans supports civil unions “allowing gay and lesbian couples to enter into legal agreements with each other that would give them many of the same rights as married couples,” 49% say “homosexual behavior is morally wrong.”

Does that mean that at least 6% of Americans think it’s fine for us to enter into relationships, but would rather we didn’t have sex?

While Pew finds a steady increase in support for civil unions over the past six years (as the chart below indicates), a solid majority (53%) still opposes gay marriage.

Interesting to note that public support turned in favor of civil unions, with ever increasing levels of support during the Administration of George W. Bush.  Even that diabolical Republican (in the eyes of the gay left) could not thwart social change.

Not just that, left-wing bloggers notwithstanding, in the past year, Pew found a “significant change” in the number of Republicans supporting civil unions, jumping from 40 to 48%.

These numbers suggest that we should perhaps push more aggressively for state recognition of civil unions in the public sphere, while working in the private sphere to change attitudes toward gays, so that fewer people find the expression of our natural longings morally repugnant.  And so they understand and appreciate the choices we make and the relationships we seek.

This is the GOP throwing its lot with the terrorists?!?!

When appearing on TV, Ma’am once again echoes the Democratic Party line.  This lady never seems to have an original thought, nor has she tailored her left-wing views to the concerns of Californians.  She just assumes people will see that (D) after her name and vote her back in.

You see, my state’s junior Senator, Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said that RNC Chairman Michael Steele sounded like the Taliban in wondeing at President Obama’s winning the Nobel Peace Prize.  Allahpundit says “the left’s nastiest senator” was just singing a “tune from the DNC songbook . . . . capped by a trill of irony when she wonders why people have to spoil the day by being mean.”  Ma’am, if you want to stop people from being mean, just look in the mirror and examine your own rhetoric.

Democratic Party spokesman Brad Woodhouse wrote the lyrics to the tune Ma’am was singing when he said, “The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists — the Taliban and Hamas this morning — in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize.”

Here’s the statement from Republican National Chairman Michael Steele that got these Democrats all worked up:

The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. . . . One thing is certain – President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.

Gosh, that sounds like what a lot of liberals have been saying.

Well, guess accomplishments don’t matter too much to Mrs. Boxer, ’cause in her 17 years in the Senate, she’s accomplished about as much as the President has in his (not quite) nine months in the White House.  So, she’s probably thinking, if he has earned the Noble Prize, I’ve earned reelection.  Let’s just hope that the unemployment rate doesn’t jump by 33% during Obama’s tenure in the White House as it has during Ma’am’s tenure in the Senate.
