Wonder what you would find if you frisked Eugene Robinson’s – from The Washington Post – latest op-ed column?

Answer: He wonders why the Tea Party activists aren’t protesting Arizona’s new immigration law.

Really Mr. Robinson???… You’re throwing out the race-card? Figures…

Activists for Latino and immigrant rights — and supporters of sane governance — held weekend rallies denouncing the new law and vowing to do everything they can to overturn it. But where was the Tea Party crowd? Isn’t the whole premise of the Tea Party movement that overreaching government poses a grave threat to individual freedom? It seems to me that a law allowing individuals to be detained and interrogated on a whim — and requiring legal residents to carry identification documents, as in a police state — would send the Tea Partyers into apoplexy. Or is there some kind of exception if the people whose freedoms are being taken away happen to have brown skin and might speak Spanish?

Personally, I think Mr. Eugene Robinson should have stayed home today and kept his phalanges off his (assuming) ritzy Apple MacBook, because it would have saved him the humiliation of writing this op-ed column.

First of all, this Arizona immigration law does not allow law enforcement officers to detain and interrogate people solely “on a whim.” I give Eugene Robinson major props here for his excellent exaggerations. Click here to read the bill.

Second, the Tea Party movement is about limiting government to its responsibilities. In this case, the government is not overreaching here, because the federal government is SUPPOSE to protect our borders and enforce immigration laws. Unfortunately, both Republicans and Democrats have not grown a spine on this issue and continue to fail at maintaining the integrity of our borders and preserving the concept of U.S. citizenship. Therefore Arizona has been forced to man-up and take care of its citizens.

Lastly, there’s nothing wrong with legal American citizens wanting their borders protected so that state unemployment rates decrease, health-care costs decrease, and their property values increase. Yup… That must be racist. 🙄 <– That’s sarcasm if you couldn’t tell.

In the end, Eugene Robinson proves once again that it is difficult for those on the far-left to understand what is and is not a proper role of our government.

Florida QB Tim Tebow.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked pro-choice organizations and other liberals?

Answer: They are angry at a “pro-life” Super Bowl advertisement they have not even seen.

Watch the video I posted above to see a few of the weak arguments being made by organizations such as Women’s Media Center. If you didn’t believe it before, you probably do now. The whole fuss over this unseen advertisement clearly proves the intolerance of the self-proclaimed “tolerant” left-wing.

The pro-life group Focus on the Family has shelled out $2 million to have their 30 second advertisement aired during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The advertisement focuses on the mother of Tim Tebow and her story of giving birth to the University of Florida football star.

Personally, I love these types of news stories, because it is political correctness at its finest. It proves just how intolerant and disrespectful some individuals are towards the first amendment of the United States Constitution. Remember: The answer to speech you don’t like is not less speech; it’s more speech.

What’s even more shocking is that Sally Jenkins – a liberal, pro-choice, sports columnist for the Washington Post – is defending the Tebow’s Super Bowl advertisement:

As statements at Super Bowls go, I prefer the idea of Tebow’s pro-life ad to, say, Jim McMahon dropping his pants, as the former Chicago Bears quarterback once did in response to a question. We’re always harping on athletes to be more responsible and engaged in the issues of their day, and less concerned with just cashing checks. It therefore seems more than a little hypocritical to insist on it only if it means criticizing sneaker companies, and to stifle them when they take a stance that might make us uncomfortable.

I’m pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I’ve heard in the past week, I’ll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the “National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time.” For one thing, Tebow seems smarter than they do.

Tebow’s 30-second ad hasn’t even run yet, but it already has provoked “The National Organization for Women Who Only Think Like Us” to reveal something important about themselves: They aren’t actually “pro-choice” so much as they are pro-abortion. Pam Tebow has a genuine pro-choice story to tell. She got pregnant in 1987, post-Roe v. Wade, and while on a Christian mission in the Philippines, she contracted a tropical ailment. Doctors advised her the pregnancy could be dangerous, but she exercised her freedom of choice and now, 20-some years later, the outcome of that choice is her beauteous Heisman Trophy winner son, a chaste, proselytizing evangelical.

Pam Tebow and her son feel good enough about that choice to want to tell people about it. Only, NOW says they shouldn’t be allowed to. Apparently NOW feels this commercial is an inappropriate message for America to see for 30 seconds, but women in bikinis selling beer is the right one. I would like to meet the genius at NOW who made that decision. On second thought, no, I wouldn’t.

Excellent points made by Ms. Jenkins.

Haha, I swear… Some of the liberals who are running these pro-choice organizations fail to use the head that God placed on their shoulders. If they would have not thrown a fit over this “pro-life” advertisement to begin with, I bet no one would have hardly noticed in the first place. Thanks to their own outrage and anger, the Tebows and Focus on the Family are getting their $2 million worth. At the end of the day, I’m sure the pro-life groups are probably  saying: “Thank you getting so pointlessly riled up.”

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Washington Post?

Answer: A liberal bias.

Are you surprised? Haha. Read the photo’s caption and you can decide for yourself:

I’ll zoom it in for you:

That’s objective journalism right there… HAHA!

Too bad the caption isn’t even necessarily correct:

In fact, the Medicare cuts championed by Democrats will likely force Medicare providers in rural areas out of business, making health care much less accessible for those outside of cities.

Washington Post = 😆
