The Walking Grammy Dead Open Thread

Zombies all the way down

Here’s a Sunday evening open thread for the Grammy Awards (which I usually don’t watch) and the continuation of the third season of The Walking Dead (which I will definitely watch).

Police Seeking Dorner Opened Fire in Another Case of Mistaken Identity

“Buffoonery”
Crime • Views: 20,891

David Perdue was on his way to sneak in some surfing before work Thursday morning when police flagged him down. They asked who he was and where he was headed, then sent him on his way.

Seconds later, Perdue’s attorney said, a Torrance police cruiser slammed into his pickup and officers opened fire; none of the bullets struck Perdue.

His pickup, police later explained, matched the description of the one belonging to Christopher Jordan Dorner — the ex-cop who has evaded authorities after allegedly killing three and wounding two more. But the pickups were different makes and colors. And Perdue looks nothing like Dorner: He’s several inches shorter and about a hundred pounds lighter. And Perdue is white; Dorner is black.

“I don’t want to use the word buffoonery but it really is unbridled police lawlessness,” said Robert Sheahen, Perdue’s attorney. “These people need training and they need restraint.”

John Birch Society Freaking Out About Southern Poverty Law Center

In many ways, the John Birch Society is the prototype for the modern right wing, and this deranged rant at their official website is a perfect example. The twisted talking points are identical to the stuff you can read every day at any right wing blog or media site: Extremist Group Exposed Working With Obama’s Justice Department. (Google cache link.)

As if Obama’s politicized Justice Department was not embroiled in enough scandals — Fast and Furious gun-trafficking to Mexican drug cartels, the subsequent coverup and lies, disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder held in criminal contempt of Congress, lawless “legal memos” purporting to justify assassinating U.S. citizens without charge or trial, training police to believe Americans may be terrorists for political activism, and more — there is now yet another travesty to add to the growing list. Documents released recently exposed the department working intimately with one of the most controversial extremist groups in America.

E-mails released last Tuesday by the non-partisan Judicial Watch group showed that Obama’s increasingly out-of-control Department of Justice was collaborating closely with the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). To make matters worse, hate-mongering propaganda issued by the widely criticized organization — ridiculed and blasted by critics as a discredited far-left attack group — was implicated last year in an attempted mass-shooting at the conservative-leaning Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C.

After the failed terror attack scheme to murder FRC employees, concerned conservatives and even some homosexual groups all across America expressed increasing alarm over the dangerous rhetoric and propaganda distributed by the SPLC, equating mainstream pro-family and Christian groups with the organizations like KKK, neo-Nazis, and terrorists, for example. The SPLC and its hysterical attacks were immediately thrust into the spotlight — especially after it was revealed that the shooter and would-be terrorist used the organization’s “hate map” propaganda to select his target.

Lindsey Graham Threatens to Hold National Security Nominees Hostage Over Benghazi Fake Outrage

Demented GOP obstructionism to continue
Politics • Views: 18,097

Sen. Lindsey Graham has appointed himself the King of Republican Bad Craziness, pandering to the far right’s bizarre fantasies about the Benghazi attack with a relentless zeal that would be impressive if it were directed at something actually useful to the country. His latest threat: Lindsey Graham to Place Hold on National Security Nominees Over Benghazi Attacks.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is threatening to place a hold on key administration national security nominations unless President Obama explains how the White House reacted to the Benghazi attacks and who “changed” the talking points used by U.N. ambassador Susan Rice during back-to-back appearances on the Sunday political talk shows in September.

Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation, Graham insisted that Republicans shouldn’t “allow Brennan to go forward for the CIA directorship, Hagel to be confirmed to Secretary of Defense, until the White House gives us an accounting.”

Let’s face it, this is exactly what the Republican Party would do anyway, Benghazi or no Benghazi. It’s just the latest excuse to do everything in their power to sabotage Obama, whether it’s good for the US or not.
