Breitbart V. Van Jones: “Bring it on Punks”

Andrew Breitbart (LIFE.com)

It is a comedic slight of history that Andrew Breitbart grew up on the mean streets of West L.A. rather than those of Flatbush or Dorchester. He has the irreverence of Muggs McGinnis and the cutting literacy of Norman Mailer, although the conservative web mogul is almost certainly not what Mailer had in mind when he thought of The New Journalism.

Nevertheless, Breitbart, a former progressive, is a street fighter, an in-the-trenches journalist provocateur who has become the bane of the New Left. While Glenn Beck received the accolades, it was Breitbart who kneecapped Van Jones, sending Obama’s communist-Truther advisor skulking out of the White House after a midnight resignation.

You gotta love this guy.

While Beck tends toward the “special,” Breitbart gives off at least the illusion that he’ll meet you in the alley to settle the matter — whatever the matter. It was Breitbart who offered $100,000 for even a snippet of footage that would show that tea party activists either spat on black members of Congress or uttered racial slurs at last year’s protest on the Capitol steps. There have been no takers to date.

Breitbart also supported James O’Keefe’s first forays into citizen journalism, resulting in Congress’s defunding of ACORN. He has since supported pro-lifer Lila Rose and another O’Keefe outing in their exposés of Planned Parenthood.

The aforementioned are a mere smattering of incidents that have propelled the Left to target Andrew Breitbart. He is one of the few conservatives in the country who can lather progressives into a vitriolic rage on the level of Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh.

And wouldn’t you know it, Van Jones is behind the latest attack.

Color of Change — don’t you just love these lefto names — an activist group co-founded by Jones, is calling for a boycott against the Huffington Post for publishing two recent entries by Breitbart.

Andrew Breitbart is a liar and a race-baiter,” wrote the organization. “Breitbart targets key people and institutions within our community, in particular those who have dared talk about the reality of racism and race in this country — Shirley Sherrod, the NAACP, President Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus. And he targets those that seek to increase Black political participation, like ACORN.”

By way of outing Color of Change, they are the group who immediately took up the cause of the Jenna Six, the black teenagers convicted of viciously beating white student Justin Barker, at a Louisiana high school in 2006.

Talk about race baiting. This outfit makes Al Sharpton look like the George Jefferson when it comes to fostering racial animus.

Van Jones is the ultimate race-baiter and this latest attack on Breitbart is just one of many in his quest to silence the free press and bring down democracy. While we have no particular love for the HuffPo, we all must resist the Left’s attempts to silence anyone with whom they disagree.

Palin: America is Ready for a Woman

In Palinography, Sarah Palin on 21/03/2011 at 06:34

The further Sarah Palin distances herself from mainstream Republican Washington, the more I like her. And while I tend to agree with Andrew Breitbart that she can be the proverbial king maker for the next 20 years by just holding her peace, the United States is in desperate need of someone decidedly un-Washington in its next President.

I believe she will run in 2012.

While Washington punditry use every Palin tweet and FaceBook posting to point out why she cannot be President, the former governor continues to woo those of us who are convinced that our government cannot recover without drastic surgery. The current lot of GOPers, now only five months in office—and I’m speaking of the old-guard leadership—are already showing signs of being more a part of the problem than the solution.

Sarah Palin is the only true Reagan Republican in the current field of potential candidates, unless one considers Michele Bachmann a potential. Newt Gingrich—who I have always liked—brings with him the same insider baggage we’re trying to shun; Mike Huckabee at times borders on the downright goofy, and most of the rest will never raise enough money to see primary day.

In the meantime, Palin has been busily crafting policy statements that are sounding more presidential with every speech she gives. Her métier is energy but she has also waded into the big boy game of international politics and makes uncommonly good sense when she does.

The Qualification Thing

In light of recent events in Libya and Japan and the current economic crisis, there should now be no question (actually there never was) that Palin is qualified to be President. The woman knows how to make a decision, unlike one world traveler who comes to mind.

Does anyone really believe that the US would be following France in the current Libyan mess were President Palin in the White House? There is no way she would looking at Nicholas Sarkozy’s backside today. I gotta buck says she could kick Obama’s ass in a street fight.

Nuff said.

My dream cabinet in a Palin White House:

Secretary of State: Newt Gingrich

Secretary of Defense: Oliver North

Secretary of Treasury: Paul Ryan

Attorney General: Michele Bachmann

Secretary of Commerce: Donald Trump

Surgeon General: Keith Ablow

Energy Department: What Energy Department?

Transportation: Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Education: Any home-school mother

It’s a Wrap: Week in Review

In Weekly Rant on 12/03/2011 at 22:23

The revelation that most American conservatives can read without moving their lips has come as a shock to the radical left. It has been long overdue but, after all, it is they who have not been paying attention.

In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker finally came to the game after reading Left Coast Ledger. Just kidding. But Walker must have been listening to someone who understands trade unionism and radical leftist strategy.

Less than a week into the fleebaggers’ boycott Greta Van Susteren inadvertently gave Walker the solution. She suggested that Walker could outmaneuver the AWOL Democrats by separating out budgetary measures and pass his collective bargaining legislation without a quorum. It took the legislature another two weeks but they finally got the message.

We also suggested that he wage warfare against the AWOL senators by fining, penalizing and cutting off their staff budgets. The slomos in the legislature finally did fine them as well.

At any rate someone got the message and the Governor has signed a bill that essentially ends collective bargaining privileges for state government employees. Now if they strike he should fire them and replace them with non-union employees, which will effectually break the unions.

Then the fine folks at NPR fell for wunderkind journalist James O’Keefe’s sting, and showed the world that public broadcasting is indeed liberally biased. O’Keefe, who is rapidly becoming a national treasure, will now go through a seemingly never-ending public scourging by the liberal media and blogosphere, while the Obama administration scrambles to continue funding public radio and television.

These groups—the ACORNS, the Planned Parenthoods and public broadcasting networks—are arms of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party; without them the left is seriously hampered in its efforts to socialize the nation.

Kudos to Andrew Breitbart for standing behind O’Keefe and pro-lifer Lila Rose in their efforts to uncloak the cultural Marxist agenda by exposing these government-funded front groups. Breitbart is right in his assertion that left wing bias in media cannot be stopped, but we sure as hell shouldn’t have to fund it.

Bill Maher actually got something right this week. Maher hates God. I don’t know if his dad molested him when he was a kid or what, but the guy definitely has a father problem. But this week that hatred actually turned for good when he told Muslim Democratic representative Keith Ellison that the Quran is a “hate-filled holy book” that inspires terrorism.

Ellison went on a fake crying jag during his opening testimony before the King committee Thursday, while pointing out that one Muslim firefighter at the WTC gave his life saving Christians. Ellison’s motive was not lost on anyone who has been on the planet for the last 10 years. We are unduly picking on Muslims. But Maher didn’t let him off the hook. “Obviously there is something going on, that they’re getting from the Quran,” said the host on his “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

That’s about it for this week.

Pray for Japan.
