A Think Progress post on memeorandum is touting a study analyzing twitter relationships to associate Republicans and conservatives with White Nationalist extremists. Think Progress notes that among the top ten twitter hashtags used are ones often associated with conservatives: #tcot and #gop. Think Progress failed to mention other hashtags in the top ten were #p2 (which is used to address comments to progressives), #Obama, and #ows.
Think Progress also wanted to point out that websites linked in tweets among those studied include Breitbart and World Net Daily. Think Progess failed to mention all the left wing rags that are linked, including the NTY, BBC, The Guardian, and Huffington Post.
A professional (and more prominently displayedA) fisking may be in order.
Here’s the Think Progress post:

actual study draws a lot fewer conclusions than TP suggests — wish I had time to write it up but not sure if I do

I’d like to see conservatives hold the Senate Republicans accountable for voting with Democrats to repeal the Obamacare tax on medical devices. Since there is no reduction in cost, the repeal (if it becomes law) just means the cost will be added to the national debt. Rather than a specific industry pick up the tab as the Democrats who voted for Obamacare intended, the repealed tax will be socialized across all future taxpayers. (I’m not interested in the argument that the industry will try to pass the tax along to consumers. In a highly profitable industry such as this one, part of the cost of the tax can be shared with stockholders resulting in lower profit margins). But the real point is that Republicans should have held firm and made the Democrats who passed Obamcare own the tax. Instead, because Minnesota is where these medical device companies are disproportionately located, Republicans helped Democrat senators from Minnesota, Stuart Smalley and Amy Klobuchar, get out of a political jam. So it’s a political win for Smalley, Klobuchar, and the K-Street medical device industry lobbyists who will have earned their pay if this repeal becomes law. Normal taxpayers without lobbyists lose.
Republicans can claim they did it on principle, but that strikes me as a sham argument since the repeal is not accompanied by a reduction in Obamacare’s cost.
It seems to me that Feinstein has been exiled to the “kids’ table.” Not by Ted Cruz, or through her own antics, but by her party’s Majority Leader.

I just got this We the People” tea party youtube emailed to me from two different people. Resurgence?
JustOneMinute also wrote about this nonsense from the NYT and Thunk Progressive.
The “controversial” police practice of “stop and frisk” is controversial because it is lied about constantly.
Just the term is a deceptive corruption of the actual policy, which is “stop-talk-and frisk” (if a frisk is justified by an articulable reason).
It is true its main product is criminals who are people of color. So are the main beneficiaries people of color.

Baucus, Begich, Hagan and Pryor joined the entire GOP caucus in voting against the budget resolution. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) missed the vote…
…All the Democratic senators who voted “no” are up for reelection in 2014 in states that voted for GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
The body approved a plan that relies heavily on $975 billion in new tax revenue to stabilize the growth of the national debt within the next ten years. The budget does not balance, however, and has a deficit of $566 billion in 2023.
But the GOPers held the line. There is that…
Since readers seemed to enjoy the immigration line I quoted from Canada on Thursday, here’s another Thought for the Day, from a celebrated British liberal:
For a democratic state to have any meaning, it must ‘belong’ to existing citizens. They must have special rights over non-citizens. Immigration must be managed with their interests in mind.
You couldn’t get away with that kind of talk in the Republican Party.
We now return you to our regularly scheduled platitudes about hardworking families… natural conservative constituency… comprehensive reform…

HAVING A FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNT IS NOT A CRIME. YET. Government Loses First Offshore Bank Account Prosecution. “[T]he Government rarely loses criminal tax prosecutions. This is believed to be the first unsuccessful prosecution relating to the use of foreign bank accounts in the Government’s ongoing international enforcement efforts. The Government must objectively and carefully select the cases to prosecute — the mere presence of a foreign bank account and foreign trust does mean there has been a tax crime — an assumption which seemed to blindly guide the prosecution of Mr. Pflueger, an innocent man.”

I sure would like to see LI and its fans make the latest Tea Party video go viral. At the risk of raising the spectre of Chris Matthews, when I watched the full version, I actually felt a tingle of excitement. If this were a full-blown movie, we could positively influence those young “sculls of mush”, as Rush calls them. The acting is really good, and the message a warning. Ayn Rand would be pleased.
