BREAKING EXCLUSIVE MUST CREDIT TWITCHY! The liberal-biased interwebs are putting conservatives in Twitter jail, maybe (or maybe not) but probably (but probably not), just for being conservatives, OH NOES!
Michelle Malkin, conservative keyboard-banging hero and founder of the the site with NINE PAID STAFFERS (or, ugh, maybe even more by now) who collect random tweets, mostly by Pat Sajak, and call it “the news wire of the 21st century,” is on to you, Twitter!
nh1.com’s Shari Small explains that the students had proposed House Bill 373, which would name the red-tailed hawk as the official “state raptor” of New Hampshire. The bill cleared the Environment and Agriculture committee, leading to a floor debate in which Rep. Warren Groen (R-Rochester) decided to make an extended joke about the red-tailed hawk and Planned Parenthood that also, in all likelihood, taught the children what abortion is:
“[The Red Tail Hawk] grasps [its prey] with its talons then uses its razor sharp beak to basically tear it apart limb by limb, and I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.”
What a dick.
I posted this as crime because it should be a crime to denigrate so vilely an organization that helps so many women. Just because you do not agree with reproductive rights of women, and they can apparently go to hell if they were raped or forced, gives your mouth no right to spill filth such as this. Cretin.
And the scary part of this trip down a dark and narrow mind is he’s a lawmaker. And pulling out a favorite quote from a favorite bookto seal the deal. I wonder if a practicing Muslim “lawmaker” used a phrase from the Koran how it would sound. Screw that. Gee I wonder what political persuasion he is? Vote for anyone GOP candidate anywhere is a vote for this. Every day. Non stop. 24/7. The lunacy marches on.
Joe Messina’s mess of an article attempts to call Obama, Pelosi, and the left racist :
Yes, I am just the old, white, racist guy whom the left attacks as having ideas dating back to the Fifties.
I say to those who embrace Planned Parenthood: you are the racists. You are the accessories to murder. You are responsible for more than 50 percent of black pregnancies in New York ending in abortion.
It’s time for you to just live up to the truth.
And, as if that is not ridiculous enough, he adds this:
A few weeks ago, President Obama decided to insult Pope Francis by giving the blessed rosary beads given to him by the Pope to Nancy Pelosi.
The first insult: Re-gifting something that a leader of one of the largest religious groups in the world gave him. Really? It’d be like giving Qurans signed by Osama bin Laden to the families of 9/11 victims. Why didn’t he just save them and to include in his presidential library? Does he not understand the gesture and value? Does he care?
So, yeah, giving a Catholic a Catholic icon, is akin to racism, and giving KKKorans to 911 families.

Remember that story Charles Johnson talked about awhile back about the Israeli government funding all abortions for people who are 20 to 33 years of age?
It turns out, at least one American wingnut was logically consistent after all. Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch points out that Mark Gordon, a writer for a conservative catholic website, has demanded that the US government end all aid to Israel until the country stops funding abortions. He maybe wrong, but at least you won’t be able to accuse him of hypocrisy here.
Religious Right activists often claim that they will never be silent about “Nazi” abortion rights …that is, unless those rights exist in Israel. We noted last week that Israel’s decision to expand public funding for abortion coverage was met with crickets from many American anti-choice groups that also embrace Christian Zionism and accuse President Obama of being unfriendly to Israel.
These organizations, of course, would have erupted with rage if the Obama administration had even contemplated implementing a similar policy.
In a column today, a writer at the conservative Catholic website Aleteia calls out U.S abortion rights opponents for responding to Israel’s new policy “with little comment or condemnation,” wondering if they either “missed the story” or think “abortion in Israel just doesn’t matter.”
Aleteia’s Mark Gordon writes that in order to be consistent, the same anti-choice movement that demands a ban on government funds for abortion coverage and groups like Planned Parenthood in the U.S. should also call for the end of U.S. aid to Israel: “American taxpayers should not be put in the position of underwriting the culture of death. But if that’s true of Obamacare – and it is – then shouldn’t it be true for American foreign aid?”

Tucked into the deeply evangelical corner of southwestern Missouri, the Islamic Society of Joplin’s mosque was an oasis for Muslims — the only mosque within a 50-mile radius.
But in August 2012, during Ramadan, the building burned to the ground in an apparent arson fire. It was the second attempt made on the mosque in about a month; activists feared a hate crime, and a team of federal and local investigators couldn’t find a suspect.
But now, a surprise turn in a different arson case has implicated an Iraq veteran, who officials say confessed over the weekend to burning down the mosque in addition to making attempts on the local Planned Parenthood office. […]
Officials have not yet charged Stout in the mosque fire. On Monday, federal prosecutors filed a request to hold a detention hearing to determine Stout’s status as the case unfolds.
No reason was given in court filings for the attacks.
In Facebook and online dating profiles under his name and showing a photo that appeared to match his booking picture, Stout self-identified as a politically conservative Christian and a struggling veteran. According to U.S. Army records, Stout was a combat engineer from October 2002 to July 2005 and had deployed to Iraq from September 2003 to September 2004. […]
Wonkette has also commented on the story in its signature style, heh:
[…] Now, let’s not be too quick in attributing a religious motivation to Mr. Stout. After all, “Authorities gave no motive for Stout’s alleged actions at the mosque or the Planned Parenthood clinic, which does not provide abortion services.” So there’s just no telling. Could be he just happened to pick those two places to burn because he’s a false flagger trying to make mosque-and-clinic-burners look bad. Or for no particular reason at all. We wouldn’t want Allen West to sic the NAACP on us, after all.
The Perot Foundation of Dallas, which was founded by the billionaire and former presidential candidate, announced this week that it would be donating $1 million to the beleaguered women’s health provider to help serve the women of Texas.
Thank you Mr. Perot
Planned Parenthood filed a federal challenge on Thursday to an Indiana law requiring clinics that administer the so-called abortion pill to have full surgical facilities, which it says would halt abortion services at a clinic in the state.
Under the law, Planned Parenthood would have to upgrade its clinic in Lafayette, Indiana, to surgical standards or stop administering RU-486, commonly called the abortion pill, it said in a lawsuit filed in Indianapolis federal court.
Separately, the group that has been at the forefront of the U.S. national battle over abortion won a legal fight to block an Arizona law that would have cut off funding through the state for its health care clinics because they also performs abortions.
Imposing surgical facility requirements on clinics where no surgery is performed “is not only unreasonable, it is utterly irrational …,” Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky said in the lawsuit, which seeks a federal court injunction.
Legislators supporting the law that took effect July 1 have said it would protect women’s health. It requires clinics providing non-surgical abortions to have separate procedure, recovery and scrub rooms like surgical centers starting January 1.
Who wants to walk by placards of Fetus’ to get a sandwich?
The home of the rock ‘n’ roll sandwich is about to play its last tune.
Mike’s Restaurant on Congress Street closes next week after three years of providing patrons affordable meals and a place to rock out.
“It will be a sad day when they close,” said Chris Mitchell, waiting at the counter as an Allman Brothers song ripped through the funky space.
For three years, the Sun Life Financial employee has started his mornings with a breakfast burrito here. After next week, “I will have to bring something to work,” he said. “That will make life less enjoyable.”
Behind the counter, owner Mike Fink is not sad, but relieved.
For the last year Fink has been fighting anti-abortion advocates protesting outside Planned Parenthood, a few steps away, on Friday and Saturday mornings.
This has snowballed into a contentious issue and the city is expected to decide whether to create a patient safety zone outside the health center this fall. But for Fink, time has run out.
“I decided kids holding signs of dead babies isn’t good for business,” he said.
