Video: Allen West’s Biker Supporters Threaten and Harass Dem Staffer

GOP candidate Allen West is running for the District 22 Congressional seat in Florida, and he’s in the news after encouraging bikers to harass and threaten a Democratic campaign staffer who attended his rally in a public park.

The new Republican method of dealing with opponents: set thugs on them.

Youtube Video

Would you be surprised to discover that Allen West is also an associate of hate mongering moron Pamela Geller?

Anyone remember the good old days when bikers just wanted to do donuts on golf courses, fuck your daughters and flip off the man? Now they're shilling for the GOP...my god, what is wrong with this country?

Connect the dots:

- Reporter put in handcuffs by unlicensed GOP "security" in Alaska

- Biker gangs "protecting" GOP candidate in Florida

- Thinly-veiled dog-whistle racism

- Blatant attempts at voter suppression among minorities

They're not "Bikers" or a "Biker Gang"...they're "Motorcycle Enthusiasts" concerned about social and political issues that affect their community...like legalizing meth, theft, assault, and rape.

Allen West is a monthly contributor to Wheels on the Road, a monthly motorcycle print and online magazine that promotes the Outlaws motorcycle gang and denigrates women.

[Link: www.wheelsontheroad.com...]

The magazine is totally fucking sick.

From the October 2010 issue of Wheels on the Road, “Here are some of the things I have to deal with: Chicks telling me their knees hurt. Well you are an oral relief station on Nastopia and you should be happy only when your knees hurt. No get that red lipstick on and get back to being the best oral relief station on the block.” [Wheels on the Road, 10/1/10; Wheels on the Road website, accessed 10/15/10]

re: #9 webevintage

The soldiers, Spc. Tyler Ellingboe, 22, and Sgt. Alexander Valdez, 31, are assigned to the 3rd Maneuver Enhancement Brigade at Fort Richardson. Maj. Bill Coppernoll, the public affairs officer for the Army in Alaska, said the two soldiers did not have permission from their current chain of command to work for the Drop Zone, but the Army was still researching whether previous company or brigade commanders authorized their employment.

The Army allows off-duty soldiers to take outside employment if the job doesn't interfere with their readiness, doesn't risk their own injury and doesn't negatively affect the "good order" and discipline of their unit, Coppernoll said.

I see Miller lied about the district requiring them to have a security team.

Miller gave interviews to Fox and CNN on Monday. He told Fox, "I might also note that the middle school itself required us by a contract for a campaign, required us to have a security team." He told CNN, "There was a -- a private security team that was required. We had to hire them because the school required that as a term in their lease."

But district spokeswoman Heidi Embley said that wasn't true.

"We do not require users to hire security," she said. Renters must only have a security plan to protect users and the school itself, she said, and can resolve the issues with "monitors."[Link: www.adn.com...]

This is the natural progression of this sort of thing.

Very true, and do you know why they put on red bandannas? It was so that they would not shoot each other by mistake when they finally took up arms against the corporate thugs who brutalized them and raped their wives.

If you doubt this, look up the practice of scrip and superscrip, Esau and rape rooms at company stores.

Look up Blair Mountain.

The beautiful thing about Blair mountain is that when the hired goons realized that the people they were oppressing would shoot back, it was harder for the coal barons to hire goons.

And this was a format that Paladino demanded because he wanted more people attacking Cuomo. Cuomo held his own, and Paladino got lost in the noise. So, now he's complaining because he couldn't get his shots in on Cuomo.

I saw somewhere the other day that he defended and distanced himself from the Outlaws by saying they didn't allow blacks in their gang.

Doesn't mean they won't vote for 'em!

(Seriously. My GFIL, whose language about black people straightens my curly hair, insists he cannot be a racist because he voted for Obama. Compartmentalization people. Compartmentalization.)

My granddad came over in 1903 from Slovakia (then part of the Austo-Hungarian Empire) and worked in the coal mines in Iowa.


I am in the emiddle of a book right now about what your granddad went through.

When he came over, he would have been called a "hunky" and would not have been considered a white person at all. "Hunky work" was down in the mines or in the fire rooms and boiler rooms doing the hottest and dirtiest work around that Ango Saxon and German descended whites didn't have to do anymore.

An unassuming 77-year-old bachelor who had hoped to sell a valuable comic book collection and leave the money to his family was robbed by a Rochester businessman's thugs, was roughed up and hours later died of a heart attack, authorities said.

Homer Marciniak got his first comic book when he was 6 and hoped to leave his sisters and nephew with the proceeds from the collection, valued at $40,000 to $100,000, said Jose Avila, police chief in Medina, in rural western New York between Rochester and Buffalo.

That being said, I don't know if it will be as close of a race as some are saying. Klein has a lot of support with Senior citizens, and frankly, Jews, and this district seems to be formed around those two demographics.

As a leftie, this all confuses me. The one thing that I liked about conservative principles was their respect for individual freedoms and support for the constitution and this sort of conduct is far from those ideals.
Now if you are a conservative and don't want to be labeled a RINO, you need to be in my bedroom and restrict my freedom to question, or even watch your candidates. You can't be educated or you're a elite, you have to be a creationist, and pro choice. It's a hell of a stretch from what I admired in the right years ago. I think we need small government, fiscal conservatives as a counterbalance to the left, but sadly the social conservatives have taken over.

At some point the conservative movement decided that politicking was more important than governing. in any case, they were good at the former, and the tea party shows that they are still successful at it.

re: #156 Major Tom

I see Allen West signs, and stickers all over the place in Boca Raton and southern Palm Beach county... It's weird, the people he attracts. You'll see a soccer mom in a Dodge Caravan with a-5-stick-figure-family sticker on the back window, and an Allen West Sticker on the bumper...

That being said, I don't know if it will be as close of a race as some are saying. Klein has a lot of support with Senior citizens, and frankly, Jews, and this district seems to be formed around those two demographics. I know the Tea Party is strong in Florida, but I'm really hoping their numbers seem exaggerated by their willingness to plaster bumper stickers and hang flags off of their vehicles.

The soccer moms who want Allen West in their corner probably just don't care, they just know he's "conservative".

Remember, people like us on blogs, who are interested in this stuff? We're unusual. People who just have Always Voted A Certain Way with no interest in the details, they don't care! They'll just do what they do. And big families = less interest in the details of a political campaign because there's no time with all the child rearin'

"Family values" candidates tend to be obviously hateful and corrupt, but if the people voting for them are the very people that are most ill-equipped to research their backgrounds? perfect. :D

But seriously, The left has fiscal conservatives within it. It's a bunk argument that 'Leftists' don't care or understand how money is spent, and whe you say things like that, it perpetuates the propaganda thrown out by Fox newsies.

It's a little of both really. Remember many countries that have had state religions have persecuted those of other religions.

No, they don't want government control over religion, they want religious control over government.

These are descendants of the Presbyterian Covenanters, they base their view on the scripture Psalms 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is The Lord" and interpret it to mean that a nation must base its laws on the Bible, or more specifically, their interpretation of said book.

In other words, the Christian sharia, to be enforced by the Christian Taliban.

True, all I am saying here is that government control over religion will lead to religious persecution as well. We have seperation of church from state and seperation of state from church meaning the state can't tell us we can't be a certain religion and if these assholes got their way surely that would happen.

Republicans Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell agree: No separation of church and state

Democratic campaign operatives around the country will tell you privately that it frustrates them that Christine O'Donnell's various eccentricities get so much more media attention than GOP gaffes do in races that Dems view as winnable.

Case in point: O'Donnell is getting a massive amount of attention today because during a debate with Chris Coons, she asked: "Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?"

But Sharron Angle said something very similar a couple months back and it got almost no national attention. During an interview with Jon Ralston, he confronted her over her 1995 statement that excluding religious schools from Federal funding is un-American and that the separation of church and state is an unconstitutional doctrine. Then this exchange ensued:

RALSTON: The separation of church and state arises out of the Constitution.

ANGLE: No it doesn't, John.

RALSTON: Oh, it doesn't? The Founding Fathers didn't believe in the separation of church and state?

ANGLE: Thomas Jefferson has been misquoted, like I've been misquoted, out of context. Thomas Jefferson was actually addressing a church and telling them through his address that there had been a wall of separation put up between the church and the state precisely to protect the church from being taken over by a state religion. That's what they meant by that. They didn't mean we couldn't bring our values to the political forum.

Meanwhile, O'Donnell has issued a statement clarifying her comments:

"In this morning's WDEL debate, Christine O'Donnell was not questioning the concept of separation of church and state as subsequently established by the courts. She simply made the point that the phrase appears nowhere in the Constitution. It was in fact Chris Coons who demonstrated his ignorance of our country's founding documents when he could not name the five freedoms contained in the First Amendment."

Fruit bagels are not bagels.

Real bagels are a little crisp on the outside and chewy, dense and soft on the inside.

They com in flavors like Plain, Rye, Pumpernickel or Black and White (my fav) with whatever you like on top in terms poopy or sesame seeds or onions.

The are kneaded by stout men and women with fore-arms like pop-eye, boiled then baked.

Once six days old they can be used as a disk weapon for self defense or a hockey puck.

Fruit bagels are toroidal muffins with a high factor of culture rape.

The incomparably stupid Jim Hoft weighs in on Christine O'Donnell's latest gaffe:
State-Run Media Crucifies Christine O’Donnell For Daring to Question Leftist Church & State Commandment (Video)
(Sorry, couldn't find a google cache yet. Link goes to a fever swamp string rather than the original at Gateway Pundit, so you get a whole passle of nuts for the price of one. )

This "state-run media" meme has migrated from Alex Jones right into what passes for the mainstream GOP recently (as Jones himself is also doing). I wonder when this acquisition took place? Were the media already under state control when Bush was still in office? Was the take-over some secret protocol in one of Obama's bail-outs? Inquiring minds want to know!

Which is of course projection at its finest. No one tries to control the message and what passes as "facts" more than the right and Fox in this country.

Fox is like a corporate run, GOP Pravda, and only Fox viewers are stupid enough to miss that fact.

Obama, eltist tax-and-spend socialist Marxist tax-raising librul, cuts taxes by $116 billion:

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. — What if a president cut Americans’ income taxes by $116 billion and nobody noticed?

It is not a rhetorical question. At Pig Pickin’ and Politickin’, a barbecue-fed rally organized here last week by a Republican women’s club, a half-dozen guests were asked by a reporter what had happened to their taxes since President Obama took office.

“Federal and state have both gone up,” said Bob Paratore, 59, from nearby Charlotte, echoing the comments of others.

After further prodding — including a reminder that a provision of the stimulus bill had cut taxes for 95 percent of working families by changing withholding rates — Mr. Paratore’s memory was jogged.

“You’re right, you’re right,” he said. “I’ll be honest with you: it was so subtle that personally, I didn’t notice it.”

This 'five freedoms' talking point must be a recent development. I never heard anything called by that name when I studied the Constitution in school.

I think it's new. I think we learned them by a similiar name when I took government in high school. It does worry me that we have candidates that don't feel church and state seperation is necessary which I find ironic especially from Angle given her fearmongreling about Sharia Law. You would think by their logic and yes guys I know they're not logical but you would think that the best way to prevent Sharia Law from ever happening in this country would be to have church and state seperated not brought together but what do I know, I am just a leftist to them/.

The point of course is not being able to rattle of "5 freedoms". I don't think even O'Donnell did so. The point also is that Coons is not against the so called 5 freedoms. The larger point is that O'Donnell not only misunderstands the 1st Amendment and the the Establishment Clause but that she is steadfastly against the separation of church and state and also thinks that creationist garbage should be taught in public schools. Alongside other things no doubt like turning our classrooms into Christian schools.

355 Kragar  Tue, Oct 19, 2010 1:49:21pm

the Tax Cut Nobody Heard Of

In a New York Times/CBS News Poll last month, fewer than one in 10 respondents knew that the Obama administration had lowered taxes for most Americans. Half of those polled said they thought that their taxes had stayed the same, a third thought that their taxes had gone up, and about a tenth said they did not know. As Thom Tillis, a Republican state representative, put it as the dinner wound down here, “This was the tax cut that fell in the woods — nobody heard it.”

Actually, the tax cut was, by design, hard to notice. Faced with evidence that people were more likely to save than spend the tax rebate checks they received during the Bush administration, the Obama administration decided to take a different tack: it arranged for less tax money to be withheld from people’s paychecks.

They reasoned that people would be more likely to spend a small, recurring extra bit of money that they might not even notice, and that the quicker the money was spent, the faster it would cycle through the economy.

Economists are still measuring how stimulative the tax cut was. But the hard-to-notice part has succeeded wildly. In a recent interview, President Obama said that structuring the tax cuts so that a little more money showed up regularly in people’s paychecks “was the right thing to do economically, but politically it meant that nobody knew that they were getting a tax cut.”

“And in fact what ended up happening was six months into it, or nine months into it,” the president said, “people had thought we had raised their taxes instead of cutting their taxes.”

re: #296 jaunte

Here's a mention of a survey from 2006:

That must be when it became popular. There was the Four Freedoms speech by FDR and then there was the Four Freedoms covers by Norman Rockwell. The latter of which was inspired by the former -- which isn't exactly an assessment of the 1st Amendment:

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression -- everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way -- everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want -- which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants -- everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear -- which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor-- anywhere in the world.

That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation. That kind of world is the very antithesis of the so-called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the crash of a bomb.

To that new order we oppose the greater conception -- the moral order. A good society is able to face schemes of world domination and foreign revolutions alike without fear.

Since the beginning of our American history, we have been engaged in change -- in a perpetual peaceful revolution -- a revolution which goes on steadily, quietly adjusting itself to changing conditions -- without the concentration camp or the quick-lime in the ditch. The world order which we seek is the cooperation of free countries, working together in a friendly, civilized society.

This nation has placed its destiny in the hands and heads and hearts of its millions of free men and women; and its faith in freedom under the guidance of God. Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights or keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose.

To that high concept there can be no end save victory.

This page is ostensibly from 1997 and kicks off a Five Freedoms Project.

INTRODUCTION

The 45 words of the First Amendment haven't changed since their adoption in 1791. Yet they are called upon to help guide a society that is radically different from the one in which the Founding Fathers lived. In this century, the First Amendment has been stretched and reinterpreted as the government has become involved in nearly all spheres of expressive activity -- campaign financing, federal funding of the arts, and regulation of mass media, to name but a few.

In recent years there has been a counter-trend, in which government intervention and involvement has been scaled back in areas such as regulation of industry. Yet at the same time, there are calls for additional forms of government activism, such as measures to control the content of the Internet. There is a need for evaluation of where the five freedoms now stand. This includes a look at trends in court rulings, legislation, executive branch policies, scholastic research and actions by non-governmental parties which impinge on these freedoms, before corrective action can be taken. This project will also survey public attitudes, which play a key role in determining the viability of the Five Freedoms.

[...]

CONCLUSION

The preliminary conclusion of this overview is that there are many reasons to be concerned about the vitality of the First Amendment as we approach the 21st Century. Government policymakers continue to lose sight of the Five Freedoms in their zeal to find solutions to problems such as terrorism and exposure of children to pornography. At the same time, there is a tendency in public opinion to go along with or to provoke such policies.

One can take solace, however, in the fact that the federal courts -- up to and including the Supreme Court -- continue to show a great deal of respect for the Five Freedoms. Most misguided legislative forays against the First Amendment are overturned.

Yet this does not mean that we can rest easy. Now, as always, eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

Lots of fun isn't it. I am sorry you have to deal with these creeps. I think the thing that pisses me off the most is that theese are the cretins who wrote the most vile, racist, islamophobic tripe out there, and after you purged them, they are now actively trying to smear you with their own past droppings, as if they are somehow not the original authors.

The hypocrisy is shattering. Presumably, their attempts to smear you in this way would indicate that they disapprove of being delusional, fear-mongering racist assholes.

Interesting.

I liked the first term Bush a lot better than the second term Bush. Mostly because by that time, I realized just how 'imperious' and secretive he was. His true background came out- old Yankee money, etc. That Texas populist stuff was just for show.

In a way, W and Obama have a lot in common. They each really have two sides to them, that imperious side and a more connected 'folksy' side.

There are both very bright (I know you will probably roll your eyes at that). Although Obama's 'bright' is far more evident, W's bright was far more practical. I admire each of them for standing up against the critics who expected them to abandon reality for ideology.

I suspect your dad is the flip side of the coin in my pocket. I do believe environment shapes political identity far more than we care to admit. You live in a more progressive area, I'm in a more conservative milieu. In truth, moderates on either side have very little of substance that divides them. Mostly, it boils down to methodology, as in, 'How do we get to the desired option'.

Ohh and not surprisingly, they are busy howling like loons about a WUWT post that stupidly and full of idiot mistakes attacks the CO2 in a jar presentation.

Just to debunk it...

The proper demonstration uses a powerful 200W lamp that gives off a lot of IR, right up close to the tanks.

This is done so all of the light emitted has a chance to go into the tanks and most importantly to compensate for the tanks equilibrating to room temperature.

A tank of any hot fluid will come to room temperature. Gasses with low specific heats, and in think walled tanks with lots of surface area will cool to room temp very quickly.

This is basic thermo. Something which none of them understands.

So, WUWT, "did the experiment" by placing the tanks about a half meter back from a 60W house bulb.

Of those 60 W, most of course went up towards the celing or down towards the table, and only a fraction of that energy was available to interact with the tanks.

Just to make certain they could skew the results some more, the WUWT people used a cold room. Heat transfers faster, the greater the difference in temperature. This is also basic physics.

So yes, stalkers and WUWT, when you skew something so it won't wok, it doesn't work. Good show cretins.

Not surprisingly, the WUWT

re: #448 sattv4u2

you didn't make a mistake, come on. That's a talking point, obviously false, repeated constantly because fools believe it. You're not a fool. That's like me making a mistake on whether cars run on ice cream or not ;-)

I just like it when people are honest

I sorta think it's cool to discuss things with intellectual honesty!

Weird, I know!

I don't work that way, the Wiki get's posted when it is the opportune time. The serial stalker trolls are going to be distracted by a bright shiny object.
I doubt it could be done in less than 90 days, more likely to take more than 4 months.

Actually,, I did,,
I really don't care whether you (or anyone) believes it ((well,, I kinda do!!!:),,)). I reacted badly and emotionally, something I try to avoid here, but hey ,, I have this thing called a temper ( 1/4 Irish ,, 1/4 Sicilian will do that to a guy))


And I now know I can't state things that are going on, having been chastised for "playing the victim card" (((HORRORS))))

re: #448 sattv4u2

Yeah ,, shame on me,,, imagine ,, making a mistake!
What was I thinking!?!?

oh ,, yeah ,,, my mother in ICU ,,, my son with an undiagnosed stomach ailment. I come on to say hi to some 'friends", have a laugh or two, and perhaps take my mind off of things

Oh , the Humanity!!

Oh Christ. We all have personal shit going on, and none of it is responsible for any delusions we might have. You didn't make a mistake so much as you were clinging tightly to a deeply held delusion. Now that the wool has been lifted from your eyes you can examine the consequences of this false belief, how holding onto it was feeding fundamentally flawed data into the mental equation that formed your economic ideology. Either way I wish your family the best and hope that your new understanding of how taxes are actually assessed improves your grasp of fundamental economic realities.

re: #51 LudwigVanQuixote


The beautiful thing about Blair mountain is that when the hired goons realized that the people they were oppressing would shoot back, it was harder for the coal barons to hire goons.

Ahhh history repeats doesn't it.

Kind of like how certain parties were surprised that Jews who knew how to use guns would have and use them in what became Israel.

Remember the redneck bar scene in 24HRS? Eddie Murphy rousting a supposedly bad-ass redneck and telling him, "I'm your worst nightmare--a n***** with a badge!"

re: #179 WindUpBird

They want the other way, they want church to have power over government. That's the goal. Get enough dominionists in office that America becomes defacto reflective of extreme social conservative Christian ideology.

Either way, I stay in Portland where it makes sense and people tend not to elect crazy people

After the way the so-cons took over the Republican Party after they were invited in for just their votes, you would think the so-cons themselves would understand that their religion could take over the government--and be taken over by it.

But that would require thinking, wouldn't it? And we all know that isn't allowed among that crowd.
