Today on ABC’s This Week, Christiane Amanpour, hosted a “Great American Debate” about the size and scope of government. Panelists included Rep. Paul Ryan, George Will, Rep. Barney Frank, and Robert Reich.
You simply must watch this entire thing… it’s absolute brilliance from George Will and Paul Ryan, and well…. just lefty talking points from Barney Frank and Robert Reich.
I wonder what it would take to get Paul Ryan to reconsider running for President this time? It’s worth a shot, don’t you think?
I guess Christianne Amanpour thinks that all black Americans attended the CBC conference yesterday, but apparently she was wrong when assuming Donna Brazile had, and it was delicious to watch her be called on that assumption.
Of course, nobody’s going to pick up on this, except probably for the blogosphere. However, if someone like Chris Wallace or Bret Baier had blindly assumed a black democrat strategist had attended a function for the Congressional Black Caucus, heads would definitely roll. However, since this insult was perpetrated by a hard-core leftist progressive on a mainstream media network, all is right in the world, yes?
Donna appeared to be nonplussed by this comment, but the rest of the panel seemed extremely aware at what just occurred; especially George Will. He had a very hearty chuckle over this, as did I.
Last Sunday on “This Week with Christianne Amanpour,” the title of the show was called “Should the West Fear Islam?” Now, she could have just stopped it at that and spared the audience from a one-hour show of America-bashing Islamopologies. The obvious answer to the show’s questions is a simple “yes,” but there was one nugget in the show that really explained the truth.
Panelists on the show included Rev. Franklin Graham, evangelical leader; Robert Spencer, founder of Jihad Watch and co-founder of Stop the Islamization of America; Ground Zero Mosque co-founder Daisy Khan; Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and other scholars and families of 9/11 victims. Rev. Graham and Spencer were both outspoken about the evils of Islam, as was former Muslim, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, reporting via satellite, probably for her safety’s sake. You see, the wonderful, peace-loving, serene religion of Islam has issued many Fatwas against her, for which she has 24-hour security protection. Remember the Dutch filmmaker, Theo van Gogh? When he was killed by an Islamofascist, a knife was plunged into his chest, pinning to it a note to Ali saying she was next. Van Gogh produced a movie Ali starred in called “Submission” about the oppression of women under Islamic Sharia law.
Not content to threaten the West, on the Larry King show, with backlash from the Muslim world if they move the Park 51 Ground Zero Mosque, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf appeared with Christiane Amanpour this morning on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday program to make the same threat. If he and his Ground Zero mosque backers do agree to move the location, then that will be seen in the Muslim world as Islam being under attack in the West; most notably, the United States. You can read the transcript here.
Hey, Rauf. Guess what? Islam IS under attack in the United States, and it’s because you and your filthy dogs of Islam brought the first attacks to us, you douchebag! Keep threatening your bull$hit and you’ll just cement the will of the American people, that we will not tolerate creeping Sharia, and we will NOT submit to Islam! If you don’t like it here, then get the hell out.
This was just unreal. From the Round Table on “This Week,” the panel included NYT writer Kate Zernike, author of the book “Boiling Mad” about the Tea Party movement, and Jonathan Karl of ABC News. The subject turned to that of the anti-incumbent mood in the country among voters, and when asked about the Tea Party’s involvement, Kate gave her take on it. Then, Jonathan stepped in and make a snide remark about “kamikaze Republicans,” like Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin perhaps screwing things up for the GOP.
Go ahead, Jonathan… you and your ilk keep that up, and you’ll be blindsided by the landslide that is coming your way in November. Keep it up, buddy, just keep it up.
