A Modest Proposal: Rape the Guy Holding the Holocaust Sign at Yesterday's Health Care Riot

Saturday, November 07, 2009

By Rude One
The Rude Pundit

If you haven't seen it yet, here's a sign at least one person, probably two people, hoisted proudly at the Michele Bachmann Anti-Health Care Reform Mass Shit Toss in DC yesterday.



At the Mass Shit Toss, literally hundreds of people who are so brain-damaged that they actually listen to Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann gathered to give aid and comfort to health insurance companies who would drop the shit-tossers from coverage if they broke their legs while marching. Also in the crowd were numerous old people who would be dead if they didn't have government health insurance, which does not, apparently, cover irony deficiency.

In case you can't read it, the sign says, "National Socialist Healthcare/Dachau, Germany - 1945." And that pile of bodies would be victims of the Holocaust. In other words, the signbearers seem to be saying, a public health insurance option as part of an exchange that contains mostly private insurance policies that would be semi-subsidized by some federal government money for the 15% or so of the population who are currently without health insurance is the same as the mass extermination of the Jews.

It's so ridiculously over the top that it makes the Rude Pundit wonder if it's not just some clever infiltrator attempting to discredit the entire tea party movement. If so, that's some fine subversion. But, alas, chances are this is a real sign that people spent time and money to make because they are fucking assholes.

And, really, when confronted with such an utterly depraved, soulless, cretinous gobbler of Glenn Beck's cock who looks like this...



...well, the only proper response is to say, "Rape this fucker."...(Remainder.)

Conservative Lawmaker Calls Fellow GOP Rep. 'Captain Crazy'


By John Byrne
The Raw Story

Michelle Marston, an aide to Republican lawmaker Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), wanted to leave quietly.

But her decision to "jump ship" while her boss engaged in perhaps her boldest media moment yet has some on Capitol Hill scratching their heads.

Including a conservative lawmaker in Bachmann's own party.

“When your captain’s crazy, it’s time to find a new ship,” an anonymous conservative Republican House member told Politico Wednesday.

Marston had tried to warn the reporter off, to no avail.

“I’m just not talking about it, and frankly I don’t think there’s a story here,” Marston wrote in an email. “Now, the thousands of people calling our office to tell us [they’re] coming to Capitol Hill tomorrow — that’s a story.”

Today, conservative activists are planning to storm the Capitol to tell members of Congress that they don't want "government" to take away their healthcare, part of a scare tactic engineered by Bachmann's aides. Activists were told to bring videocameras and point them in congressmembers faces as part of an effort to derail House Democrats' healthcare overhaul.

The Minnesota Republican has garnered national attention for her sometimes outrageous quips -- including one in which she said conservatives should slit their wrists to defeat Democrats' healthcare plans....(Remainder.)

The Health Benefits Advisory Committee Doesn't Tell You What Plan to Buy

By Angie Drobnic Holan
PolitiFact


A few months ago, a chain e-mail purporting to be a line-by-line analysis of the House health care reform bill reached in-boxes all over the country, warning people of the dire consequences of the Democratic plans for reform. Taking a page from the same playbook, the House Republican Conference has created a similar list for the new health care bill that will be coming to the House floor in the next few weeks.

You can read our fact-check of the Republican analysis in its entirety. Here, we're looking only at the statement, "Page 111 - Section 223 establishes a new board of federal bureaucrats (the 'Health Benefits Advisory Committee') to dictate the health plans that all individuals must purchase."

Under the Democrats' health care reform plan, people will have to buy health insurance or pay a tax penalty, and policymakers have said they want everyone covered. The House bill also says what basic coverage should include: hospitalizations, physicians' visits, prescription drugs, mental health and substance abuse treatment, preventive care, maternity care, well-baby and well-child care, and durable medical equipment.

But it doesn't provide specifics, like what kinds of prescription drugs or specific medical procedures must be covered.

The bill creates the Health Benefits Advisory Committee to advise the secretary of Health and Human Services on what the specifics should be. The committee will have up to 27 members appointed by the president and the Comptroller General, and it will represent the major stakeholders in the health care system, according to the bill.

The committee doesn't dictate health plans, though: It advises the secretary, who can reject the recommendations. Another important caveat is that the committee helps set a baseline for different types of coverage....(Remainder.)

The GOP’s Toxic Tea Party

By Joe Conason
Truthdig

When Newt Gingrich warned Republicans that they were making a grave “mistake” by driving out moderates and enforcing the angry orthodoxy of the far right, the sober tone of his remarks was stunning.

This is a politician who is no stranger himself to the wilder shores of extremism, a populist and a purist who rose to great power against the GOP establishment, and a demagogue whose lexicon lacerated the “Democrat Party” as decadent, elitist, unpatriotic and immoral.

In his day, Gingrich channeled the same phobias and fury as the “tea party” activists whose growing influence in Republican ranks seems to have shaken him so badly. Why is Newt scared now?

Despite his habitual ranting against the Eastern elites, the former House speaker is a professional historian and an intellectual with wide-ranging interests—making him a figure of potential suspicion to radio talkers without much formal education and the raving mobs that follow them.

Much as he exploited the prejudices of the religious right and fantasies of the conspiracy crowd, Gingrich has always affected a more sophisticated and urbane attitude. He may be troubled to realize that he suddenly ranks far lower than Sarah Palin, who can barely muster a coherent political thought, or Glenn Beck, who enthralls his audience with weird, weepy rants.

Leaving aside any lingering presidential ambitions, Gingrich understandably feels that brand of leadership will have a very limited appeal for most Americans—and that the more voters see of it, the less they will like it....(Remainder.)

Global Treaty Could Throw File-Sharers Off Internet After 'Three Strikes'

File-sharers could be jailed under proposed ACTA provisions

By Daniel Tencer
The Raw Story


Leaked details of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement being negotiated in secret by most of the world's largest economies suggest Internet file-sharers could be blocked from accessing the Internet if they are repeatedly accused of sharing copyrighted material, say media and digital-rights watchdogs.

And the worst-case scenario could see popular Web sites like YouTube and Flickr shut down because of a provision in the treaty that would force them to monitor everything uploaded to the site for copyright violations.

Internet law professor Michael Geist published details of "leaked" portions of the discussions on ACTA on his blog Tuesday, as a new round of ACTA negotiations began in Seoul, South Korea. The US, along with all the countries of the European Union as well as Japan, Canada, Australia and a handful of other countries, are involved in the negotiations.

"The provisions would pave the way for a globalized three-strikes and you're out system," Geist blogged Wednesday, referring to a proposal from copyright holders to have Internet service providers cut off service to anyone accused at least three times of illegally sharing copyrighted material....(Remainder.)

Michele Bachmann Claims Page 92 of Health Bill Prohibits Private Insurance

By Catharine Richert
PolitiFact


House Democratic leaders last week released the health care bill they plan to bring to the floor, and it didn't take long for the Republicans to publish a laundry list of complaints about it.

We'll be exploring those complaints with a story we'll publish later today or tomorrow, but in the meantime, we'd like to explore one of the points made by Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Republican from Minnesota.

She made the statement on Oct. 30, 2009, on Sean Hannity's show on the Fox News Channel.


She said that on Page 92 of the new bill, "it says specifically that people can't purchase private health insurance after a date certain, which means people will ultimately go into a single-payer plan where it is government providing health care and only one single government system. That's why this is so bad, Sean. This is socialized medicine ... This is, as I said, the crown jewel of socialism. It's what Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have wanted from the very beginning." (See her comments starting about the 2:15 mark in this video.)

We won't rate her opinion that Democrats are proposing the "crown jewel" of socialized medicine, or her prediction that it will ultimately lead to a single-payer system. Instead, we're interested in Bachmann's claim that Page 92 of the bill prevents people from buying private health insurance after a certain date.

We not only find that she is misinterpreting that one page, but that she's also distorting the other 1,989 pages of a bill that would construct a system largely based on private health insurance. Her claim is a serious misrepresentation of a plan that relies on a marketplace of private coverage....(Remainder.)

GOP Health Bill Would Allow Insurers to Ignore Consumer Protection Laws

By Gavin Dahl
The Raw Story

A new Republican health reform proposal would allow insurers to bypass consumer protection laws and remove restrictions on rate hikes, according to published reports.


In the GOP's 230-page draft of an alternative health care bill is the following passage:
This policy may be less expensive than others because it is not subject to all of the insurance laws and regulations of the state ... including coverage of some services or benefits mandated by the law of the state ... Additionally, this policy is not subject to all of the consumer protection laws or restrictions on rate changes ...


The bill, which caps medical malpractice awards, additionally seeks to increase the use of health savings accounts and would create insurance pools for high-risk individuals.

Rep. John Boehner is calling the bill "The Affordable Health Care for America Act."

A key to the expansion of coverage and choice is permitting health insurers to offer interstate policies, they claim. As Think Progress points out, under the Republican proposal the insurer can choose a primary state "whose covered laws shall govern the health insurance issuer" and can change states "upon renewal of the policy."

Page 129 requires a “health insurance issuer” to “provide the following notice” informing consumers in so-called "secondary states" that the policy is “not subject to all of the consumer protection laws or restrictions on rate changes of the state.”...(Remainder.)

Heated GOP Campaign Rhetoric a Risk in Purple Colorado

By John Tomasic
The Colorado Independent

The heated rhetoric and no-holds-barred campaign tactics on display in the Douglas County school board race may complicate what looks to be Republican party leader Dick Wadhams‘ plan to take back the state. The Douglas County GOP supported four “real Republicans” and targeted two “liberal Republicans” for defeat. The categories seemed to be based entirely around the fact that the teacher’s union endorsed the two “liberal Republicans.” That endorsement led to escalating allegations that the so-called union candidates were connected to ACORN and were working to further Pres. Obama’s alleged agenda to socialize health care and education. 

In such an environment– one that includes the New York Congressional race where Colorado social conservative Marilyn Musgrave campaigned for a Conservative Party candidate over the local GOP candidate– Wadhams may find it difficult to maintain message. So far, GOP candidates for the top Colorado spots– Michael Bennet’s U.S. Senate seat and Bill Ritter’s seat in the Governor’s mansion– have been avoiding social issues and emphasizing fiscal conservativism. Can that strategy last?

Registered Republicans still outnumber Democrats in Colorado but in the last five years, Democrats have won both of the state’s U.S. Senate seats, three U.S. House seats, the governorship and majorities in both houses of the state Assembly. But Colorado is not suddenly Massachusetts....(Remainder.)

California Republican Lumps Obama in with Hoover in His Approach to Fighting Recession

By Louis Jacobson
PolitiFact


President Barack Obama has been in office for just 10 months, but already he's being measured against his predecessors in the Oval Office. In a House floor speech on Oct. 27, 2009, Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., said Obama and Herbert Hoover were ineffective at dealing with recessions.

"Three presidents within the last 100 years have responded to recessions by reducing taxes and regulations," McClintock said. "Warren Harding, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan all produced rapid and dramatic economic recoveries. We’ve had two presidents in those 100 years who reacted to recessions by doing the opposite — Herbert Hoover in the early 1930s, who radically increased taxes and spending and who imposed unprecedented burdens on trade, and the other is Barack Obama."

We contacted a host of presidential historians and economists to see whether they agreed with McClintock.

First, let's discuss where the experts generally agree that McClintock is right.

Harding, Kennedy and Reagan each acted to lower taxes, and in fact each of them staked some political capital on it. (Technically, Kennedy's successor, Lyndon Johnson, brought the tax cut to fruition after Kennedy's assassination.) Each of these presidents either inherited a recession upon entering office or saw one emerge early in their first term. Meanwhile, Hoover did indeed hike taxes and spending during his tenure, and he signed the Smoot-Hawley Tarriff Act of 1930, which raised tarriffs on thousands of goods to record levels.

Two of those we spoke to -- David Boaz of the Cato Institute and Kevin Hassett of the American Enterprise Institute -- were generally favorable toward McClintock's comments. But other scholars we spoke to saw a number of failings in McClintock's thesis....(Remainder.)

Pro-immigration vs Fortress Europe



By Bart Zuidervaart
Trouw

Arson, hate mail, paint bombs…: opponents of Dutch immigration policy are stepping up their crusade in The Netherlands. According to Dutch intelligence, two “extremist” organisations spearhead the movement, but the most violent acts are generally the work of splinter groups.

August 2009: After a warning was issued on the Web, a building next to Zestienhoven Airport was set ablaze. It was a construction site shed used by companies that are building a large detention centre (320 cells to hold 576 people) for illegal aliens. A little later that day, Anarchist Fire, a small group of anonymous activists, claimed responsibility. Arson, hate mail, threats… Recent years have seen stiffening resistance to Dutch asylum and immigration policies, reports the AIVD, The Netherlands’ General Intelligence and Security Service.

David van Ballegooijen experienced that first hand. On 20 February 2007 he got quite a shock upon leaving his house in Zeist: the façade was splattered with red paint. At first he put it down to vandalism…until he received an anonymous e-mail: “Blood on your hands, bloodstains on the wall (...). This is a warning (...). No-one collaborating with the inhuman refugee policy will remain anonymous any more.” Van Ballegooijen immediately got the picture: in his capacity as local leader of his Christian party, he had voted in favour of plans to expand the Kamp Zeist detention centre for illegal aliens. “If people disagree with political decisions, I’d ask them to ring at my door during the day,” he says. “Throwing a paint bomb in the middle of the night is cowardly.” That same night, the activists paid visits to five leaders of other parliamentary groups. Karst Schuring, of the Labour party, received hardest blow: the bag full of paint landed in his daughter’s bedroom.

Dozens of companies targeted

Last 9 February, the architect of the Zestienhoven detention centre found his house and car stained with red paint, followed by an e-mail from a group called Betonrot (literally “Concrete Rot”): “By way of thanks for your new plans for the Zestienhoven detention centre and your previous contributions to the industrial penitentiary complex. This is a warning (...). Quit cashing in on Fortress Europe’s barbarous immigration policy!”...(Remainder.)

You Must List All Your Guns on Your 2010 Tax Return

List your guns on your 1040? No -- this bill never passed

By Ian Jannetta
PolitiFact


It's a scary time to be a gun owner in the United States — at least if you believe some of the claims made by gun-rights groups and spread in chain e-mails.

We recently investigated a claim made by Gun Owners of America that a version of a health care bill currently in Congress "could be used to ban guns in home self-defense," and rated it False. We gave the National Rifle Association a Pants on Fire for making a similar claim during the 2008 election.

So we were skeptical when a reader forwarded us a chain e-mail that claims the following:

"Now 'all Guns' must be listed on your next (2010) tax return! As if we didnt [sic] have enough to get upset about! If you have a gun, I hope it isn't registered! Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun."

The e-mail continued:

"This bill was introduced on Feb.. 24, 2009, by the Obama staff. BUT... this bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the new law becomes effective! This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee has passed this without the Senate voting on it at all. Trust Obama ? ...... you must be kidding!"

The e-mail is wrong in so many ways that it's hard to know where to begin. But here we go:

• The "Obama staff" can't introduce bills, only members of Congress can.

• No such bill was introduced on Feb. 24 of this year. But there was such a bill introduced on Feb. 24, 2000, by Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat from Rhode Island.

• The bill didn't pass. Indeed, it died in committee, as most bills do. The e-mail wrongly says the law will take effect with your "next tax return." The bill would have required people to register handguns in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record, the government would have shared that information with law enforcement agencies, and guns would have been taxed when they were manufactured or sold. But again, the bill did not pass.

• The National Rifle Association wrote a blog post discrediting the e-mail, saying that it was "recycling an old alert that wasn’t even accurate when it was new," and noting that the bill in question "disappeared without any action by the Senate, back when Bill Clinton was still in the White House."...(Remainder.)

Shep Smith: Alleged Ft. Hood Shooter's Name 'Tells Us A Lot'

By David Edwards and Daniel Tencer
The Raw Story

"This is going to get very dark," reads the headline of a blog posting late Thursday by TalkingPointsMemo's Josh Marshall.

Marshall was referring to news reports stating that the alleged primary shooter killed in today's rampage at the army base in Fort Hood, Texas, has a "Muslim-sounding" name -- and what that will mean for the political debate surrounding the shooting in post-911 America.

"The fact that the primary assailant has an Arabic name and is presumably, though we don't know this yet, of Muslim extraction if not a practicing Muslim, is going to be the focus of attention," Marshall wrote.

And indeed, no sooner had Marshall made his prediction than Fox News made that prediction come true.

In an interview with US Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), Fox host Shepard Smith asked: "The names tells us a lot, does it not, senator?"

"It does," Hutchison replied. "It does, Shepard."

While Smith stressed he wasn't releasing the alleged shooter's name because Fox had not been able to corroborate it, ABC News is reporting that the person identified as the main shooter in the violent incident was Major Malik Nadal Hasan....(Remainder.)

However, even if Yucca Mountain were to receive a license -- which could be several years -- experts say it may not be safe, would not be able to receive radioactive fuel for a "long time," and the costs to build, operate, and receive the fuel have reportedly ballooned to more than $96 billion....(Remainder.)

Lawmaker Tells Activists to 'Scare' Congress with Videocameras

By Raw Story

The conservative Republican lawmaker who once said activists should “slit their wrists” to protest Democrats’ healthcare reform now believes Congress should live in fear.

In a conference call with supporters Wednesday night, GOP Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) said a motley crew of activist she’s drummed up to take her anti-healthcare message to Congress should “scare” lawmakers with video cameras.

"Nothing scares members of Congress more than freedom-loving Americans," she said in a conference call Wednesday, according to Politico. She urged her backers to confront congressmembers with video cameras. "I think that will absolutely scare these members of Congress so much that Pelosi will not get the votes and it will kill the bill."

Bachmann took her message to Fox News on Tuesday, where she described the protest as a “Super Bowl of freedom.”

"Let the Congress know that the messages from the tea party are still relevant," Bachmann told Fox News' Gretchen Carlson. "This is it, this is the Super Bowl of freedom this week.”...(Remainder.)

Rep. Cantor Blames Dems For Extreme Signs At GOP Protests

By Matt Finkelstein
Media Matters


Like previous right-wing protests, today's rally on Capitol Hill featured no shortage of disturbing and offensive images.  Think Progress captured a photo of one sign explicitly comparing health care reform to the Holocaust. It read "National Socialist Health Care: Dachau, Germany - 1945." Luke Russert also observed signs reading "Get the Red Out of the White House," "Waterboard Congress," "Ken-Ya Trust Obama?" and "Un-American McCarthyite" (with a picture of Nancy Pelosi):



Unlike other protests, this one was not only attended but also organized by Republican members of Congress.  These people came to DC -- signs and all -- at the request of the GOP.

But shortly after addressing the crowd, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) actually blamed Democrats for the hateful images on display.  In an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, Cantor suggested that the signs were the mere result of "frustration" over the democratically elected majority's "extreme policies." Mitchell pushed him to say whether he's "comfortable with those attacks against the President of the United States," but Cantor quickly changed the subject:
CANTOR: Listen, I don't think we should engage in personal attacks.  But I think, and what I take the message from the gathering of tens of thousands of people on the steps of the Capitol today, and the elections on Tuesday, is the fact that, you know what, we need some balance here in Washington.
According to the Capitol Police, the crowd was around 4,000 people -- far smaller than Cantor's "tens of thousands" estimation.
