Boy are you in for a real treat. Now, I understand that those of you who hate Glenn Beck & Fox News are going to dismiss this whole thing, but if you’re really paying attention and are awake today, what Glenn is about to reveal to you should chill you to the bone.
Anita Dunn is the new person in charge at the White House who went to war with Fox News in an interview this past weekened on CNN. Apparently she’s the new White House “Fox News War Czar.” Specifically, she’s supposed to account for and address any lies she sees on Fox News, especially the Glenn Beck show, and for that, Glenn Beck has installed a hotline in studio for Anita Dunn. Anita Dunn is the only one who was given the phone number for this phone, and Glenn has been begging for someone to call and say that he’s got his story wrong. For the love of God, I hope he’s wrong, too. But it doesn’t seem Anita’s either taken her job seriously, or the White House finds nothing wrong with what he’s said.
Last night on Hannity, Ollie North was on to discuss his upcoming special on War Stories about the Colombian FARC narco-terrorists, and the brutality of that group. Included in this preview was the release of American hostages Keith Stansell, Marc Gonsalves and Tom Howes. They spent 1,967 days in the jungle as prisoners, and Howes specifically calls FARC leader Cesar an “animal” for what he did to all of the hostages.
The guys all wrote a book chronicling their ordeal called “Out of Captivity” after being released from 5-1/2 years in captivity. Recommended reading for any Che-loving lefties who think despots are so cooool. I vote we send some of our Hollywood elites to Colombia on a “camping trip.” What say you?
Or should I say SICK love affair….Hollywood has long had this twisted affection for anything dictatorial, and instead calling our President a totalitarian dictator, when they obviously know nothing of what a truly repressive regime is.
Nick Gillespie of Reason.tv has a great piece on just such mis-placed adulation, and here is his brilliant observation.
Gisele Bundchen wears him on the runway, Johnny Depp wears him around his neck, and Benicio Del Toro becomes him in the new, highly acclaimed, two-part epic film from Steven Soderbergh, Che. Ernesto “Che” Guevara, the revolutionary who helped found communist Cuba, is the celebrity that celebrities adore. And be it Madonna, Rage Against the Machine, or Jay-Z, musicians really dig Che.
Itâ€™s something that baffles Cuban jazz legend Paquito Dâ€™Rivera. â€œChe hated artists, so how is it possible that artists still today support the image of Che Guevara?â€ Turns out the rebellious icon that emblazons countless T-shirts actually enforced aesthetic and political conformity. Dâ€™Rivera explains that Che and other Cuban authorities sought to ban rock and roll and jazz.
