Saturday Night Card Game (Calling on Think Progress to play the ‘guilt by association card’ on Occupy Wall Street)

Saturday Night Card Game (Calling on Think Progress to play the ‘guilt by association card’ on Occupy Wall Street)

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

Dear Think Progress:

For the past several years you have been playing the race and extremist cards on people who oppose Obama’s policies, most particularly against the Tea Party movement and Fox News.  Your misleading video about supposed Tea Party racism is legendary.

You even took time out of your smear campaigns against the Koch brothers and Clarence Thomas to sponsor a website with the NAACP and your step-sister Media Matters to track supposed Tea Party racism, but the site now is defunct because there were not enough stories even for you to twist.

So what are you going to do about the anti-Semitic rhetoric at Occupy Wall Street and related rallies?  Contrary to what you did to the Tea Party, so far you have applied a standard of not guilty by association:

While the anti-Semitic signs and clips shown in the commercial are deeply offensive, the Occupy Wall Street protesters have consistently rejected the attempts of a small number of extremists to hijack the movement.

Why have you not played the guilt by association card against OWS?

It is getting tougher for you to hold off, because now the American Nazi Party has endorsed the Occupy Wall Street protests directed at the evil Jewish Bankers (via Pat Dollard):

Seriously people, just WHO is our enemy?  The unemployed left-wing 25-year-old holding up a sign, OR the judeo-capitalist banksters who swindled the American taxpayers out of A TRILLION dollars in the “bailout” scam AND continue to oppress the White Working Class?!?  Even Adolf Hitler’s NSDAP had to vote with open communists on some issues to achieve their goals.  WE need to utilize and support every movement of dissent against this evil American empire, regardless of which end of the political spectrum it originates from.

This tweet nicely sums up your dilemma:

So what’s it going to be, Think Progress?

Will you convict the Occupy Wall Street movement of guilt by association as you convicted the Tea Party movement?

We know the answer, don’t we? You will do the only thing you know how to do, attack:

(By the way, nice job Lee Fang working a photo of Clarence Thomas into the defense of OWS.)

Even the CPUSA is too far right for the likes of Think Progress

LOL….I figured that the NAZI party thumbs up for OWS would get your juices flowing

Guess who else came out in support of OWS …no surprise here

They fail to cover the anti-Semitism and Nazi support … but Taiwanese animators have a go at the roots of OWS:

Guess I’m going to have to lift a prior comment of mine on another post here (yesterday morning) as it contained an entirely relevant link, with a series of photos, ones that Think Progress might want to address as well in their response to you:

Meanwhile, PJ Media features some of the anti-Semitic “claims” of the OccupyLA protesters . . . curiously, I haven’t seen much coverage of this in any mainstream media stories. They must have missed it . . .

I’ll admit at first I saw some similarities between the Tea Party and OWS. While I was somewhat suspicious of the former, at least you never saw this at their rallies

It’s a man sitting on a traffic light. While I’m sure everyone there will complain when the police arrest him for disorderly conduct, guess who he’d sue if they didn’t try to get him down and he fell?

Dear Think Progress,

Like the “Arab Spring,” isn’t all the anti-Semitism supposed to start in one of the later scenes, long after the warm, hopey-changey theme of the opening scenes has lulled the audience into nodding off a bit?

LukeHandCool (who thinks that after the job John Hinderaker did on him, Lee should consider changing his name to Lee de Fanged)

America’s left, even more than the Soviet left, lives in a selective reality. The communists were brutal when quelling dissenting interests. The American liberals/progressives cannot afford to entertain the same tactics, since they represent a minority of the population, and an incomplete control of wealth and power in this nation.

Anyway, they have, time and again, confirmed a selective recall of history, science, and reality. Their most vocal representatives seem to experience no anguish whatsoever when they are confronted with a reality which contradicts their perceptions. That’s an impressive trick, which most people cannot manage to pull off, and, if they do, will inevitably lose their sanity when it persists for an extended period of time.

No, this is simply life’s game of competing interests. The left has their strategy and tactics, and they will not betray them, as long as they remain even marginally effective. However, there is a possibility to effect positive influence of true moderates and true independents.

Let’s hope that in our pursuit of positive progress, our compromises are reasonable, and with optimal preservation of individual dignity in mind.

As for the Nazis, they, as all left-wing ideologues, suffer form delusions of grandeur — an implicit belief that they possess superior or exception dignity (the antithesis of enlightenment) — and dreams of instant gratification.

OWS is the greatest collections of perverts, morons and malcontents since Obama’s inaugural ceremonies. Ironically, they are probably mostly the same people attending both events…

Now that the Nazis and the Communists fully support this band of malcontents (who also support Obama, I don’t know how or why), can’t we all say this is #OWS’s “Jump the Shark” Moment?

I love this post. It is so frustrating that people are not being shown who and what this group is.

I was hoping you would use this Sean Penn clip and comment for your Saturday Night card game. Sean Penn is such a useful idiot. He is a perfect fit for Hollywood today.

But, there is always next week! 😉

Seems to me, if I recollect right, that many of the banks didn’t want the bailouts and Paulsen said they weren’t leaving the room till they signed up for it.

[…] and racists by the media and Democrats. Of course that all falls short of what is actually being said and done by the Occupy Wall Street […]

[…] it’s not that, but Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection calls out Think Progress for their double standard and false portrayal of the tea party movement. Dear Think Progress: For the past several years you have been playing the race and extremist cards […]
