Rhetoric By Any Other Name is…Free Speech

In this insane political environment in which we find ourselves after the horrible tragedy in Tucson last Saturday, we have renewed calls from various officials, pundits, journalists, and even lawmakers floating ludicrous proposals to ‘tone down the rhetoric,’ ‘tamp down the vitriol,’ and change the political climate; all by creating new laws and regulations regarding speech, certain words in general, and, yes, even symbols.

So I’ve taken the time to give them some example of this “vitriolic rhetoric” and how they’re used in our everyday conversations, so the new Speech Police will be able to more easily recognize these inflammatory terms and phrases when they’re encountered.

Yes, this list is ridiculously long, but the wailing and gnashing of teeth, sweating of brow, and fretting over such terms and phrases is just as ridiculous; not necessarily in length but in breadth of insanity.

So, here we go. These are the things that we may no longer be able to say, and phrases we may no longer be able to use (in print or orally) once the Speech Police have gotten their way.

Beck on the Deficit of Trust in America – And Where’s the Media Outrage Over the $3-Gallon Gas Now? (VIDEO)

Today on Glenn’s show, he discussed the general deficit of trust we have in America, specifically when it deals with the media. For you libs out there, I’m putting this out front right now – Beck implores us all to NOT trust him, but go out and do research for ourselves on everything we see, read or hear. I’ve followed that and done all my own research.

Having said all that, Glenn is right about this issue. Where is the media now that gas is $3/gallon, yet when Bush was president, folks like Sens. Schumer and Clinton held press conferences and complained demanding answers for the price of gasoline, and Harry Reid even said the price of gasoline was more important than the housing market crisis. Seriously? And if memory serves me correctly, wasn’t it Schumer who held a press conference at a gas station between the pumps so the cameras could get the pump prices?

Instant Classic: Michele Bachmann Asks Chris Matthews About The Thrill Up His Leg (VIDEO)

Seriously Chris? SERIOUSLY???

Commentary from the Real Clear Politics post of this exchange:

A combative Chris Matthews accuses Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) of being “hypnotized” and under a “trance.”

Bachmann says we’re out of this “nightmare” and “we’re thrilled.”

“I think people are thrilling tonight, I imagine that thrill is maybe not quite so tingly on your leg anymore, I’m not sure anymore,” Rep. Bachmann told Matthews.

After the interview, a purple-faced Matthews said “I never used that word” and called Bachmann a moron.

Then the rest of the MSNBC brain-trust, Olbermann & Maddow, chime in with their derogatory sneers about Ms. Bachmann. I guess they should just be happy that at least three people were watching their cable show tonight…at least long enough to tape this segment of it.

But Fox? That’s just pure GOP propaganda. Sure, E.J. And the Washington Post is a bastion of “fair and balanced” news, as well. Oh, and yes, there are MANY people more conservative than David Brooke, E.J. Like… all of them.

BREAKING: Bill O’Reilly Reacts to NPR’s Firing of Juan Williams (VIDEO)

Bill O’Reilly called in to Fox New’s “Happening Now” to respond to the story of NPR’s firing of Juan Williams. There’s a firestorm coming, and Bill is only one of many who are chomping at the bit to right this wrong.

Folks, this story is only going to get bigger. There are a LOT of folks who have a lot to say about this, and it’s going to get ugly (for NPR, that is). Seriously, folks. All hell is going to break loose on this one. NPR needs to be DEFUNDED NOW! Stay tuned.
