  • Pro-gun Community PWNS Bloomturd on Grassroots Activism

    http://moonbattery.com/nanny-bloomberg-mad.jpg

    Last week, Michael Bloomberg announced his new anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety, in conjunction with a $50 million initiative to develop a “nationwide grass-roots network” to pursue gun control. While Bloomberg’s plans can better be described as Astroturfing, the billionaire’s statements did manage to mobilize a legitimate grassroots response. Unfortunately for Bloomberg, that response came from the pro-gun community.

    Upon learning of the ex-mayor’s plans, Second Amendment advocates immediately took to the battle to the web. Activists took advantage of an embarrassing oversight by the Bloomberg conglomerate and registered the name Everytown for Gun Safety with Facebook. The activists then began using the page to post pro-gun materials. The move caused an immediate sensation in the blogosphere and demonstrated the ex-mayor’s ham-handed approach to grassroots. One person responsible for the page told Buzzfeed, “I took the Bloomberg name because I wanted this page to remain open to debate, unlike his group at Moms Demand Action that block anyone with alternative views. Gun owners are getting a bad rep nation wide from their anti gun propaganda. As to who I am, I am your average citizen that believes the second amendment ‘shall not be infringed.'”

    Other pro-rights advocates followed suit, registering Facebook pages for Everytown for Gun Safety along with various state names, such as Everytown for Gun Safety – Colorado or Everytown for Gun Safety – Indiana. Ironically, the materials posted on the preemptive Everytown for Gun Safety pages have more to do with actual gun safety – i.e., the safe-handling of firearms — than anything found on the official Everytown for Gun Safety website.

    Further, the response has reached other corners of the web. Pro-gunners have acquired Twitter handles with variations on the name Everytown for Gun Safety. Numerous others have produced images and videos parodying the new group and its materials.

    Since gaining headlines all over the web, the initial Everytown for Gun Safety pro-gun Facebook page has been taken down by those who created it, with at least one outlet claiming that the removal was due to a possible threat of legal action. This is in line with what Everytown for Gun Safety Executive Director Mark Glaze told Buzzfeed on April, 16, “We’re going through the proper process for transitioning our Demand Action page to ‘Everytown,’ which takes a few weeks, and acquiring trademark protection for both Everytown and Everytown for Gun Safety. Once that happens, we expect Facebook to shoo these cybersquatters politely off this name/page.” In other words, rather than generating real grassroots support, Bloomberg is using his more typical tools of lawyers and consultants to quash an authentic grassroots movement.

    While the NRA does not encourage or condone unauthorized use of legitimate trademarks, the intrepidness the pro-gun community has shown in response to Bloomberg’s rebranding campaign is instructive. The embarrassing web rollout of Bloomberg’s new group should serve as an education on the power of legitimate grassroots activism, and the limits of top-down, money-driven politics. The pro-gun activists that have taken to Facebook and Twitter aren’t a monolithic effort directed by a well-funded clique, they are scores of individuals who feel strongly about an issue and are acting in defense of their rights. No amount of money can buy Bloomberg that type of support or dedication.


  • Watch What Happens When Dana Loesch Confronts One of Bloomturd’s Anti-Gun Puppets (Video)

    Blaze TV host Dana Loesch has made no secret about her ongoing disagreement with Shannon Watts, the outspoken gun control advocate who heads Moms Demand Action and has partnered with former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg to create Everytown for Gun Safety. And on Saturday, she was finally able to confront Watts about it in person.

    Loesch was in Indianapolis to attend the 2014 NRA convention but decided to stop by an area where Watts and other anti-gun activists were staging a get-together. When confronted by Loesch, Watts refused to answer any questions and eventually was whisked away in an SUV by what Loesch told TheBlaze appeared to be armed security.

  • De Blasio wants to ban new wood fireplaces (Bloomberg II)

    Mayor Bill de Blasio celebrated Earth Day on Tuesday by proposing more regulations — including a ban on new wood-burning fireplaces.

    The mayor made the proposal, along with those for other sweeping regulations that he said would update emission standards and help curb air pollution.

    Instead of wood-burning fireplaces, de Blasio wants to allow only cleaner-burning units, such as those that use natural gas.

    Residents who already have wood-burning fireplaces would be allowed to keep them, but would be required to use only firewood that has 20 percent moisture or less, according to the Department of Environmental Protection.

    Officials said that drier wood burns more cleanly and releases fewer toxins into the air.

  • Bloomturd Pays Protestors to Picket NRA Meetings, NRA Members Pay to Attend Themselves!

    Ten days after Michael Bloomberg announced a $50 million investment in gun control and proclaimed the National Rifle Association should be afraid of him, the Bloomberg-backed Everytown for Gun Safety group is taking the fight directly to NRA — picking up a chunk of the tab for hundreds of activists and gun violence survivors to attend the annual NRA convention in Indianapolis.

    The group said that more than 100 mothers and 20 survivors of gun violence will arrive in Indianapolis on Friday. Everytown is covering the cost of the mothers’ hotels in Indianapolis, and paying the travel and lodging expenses for a group of 20 survivors to be in Indianapolis this weekend, an Everytown spokesperson told BuzzFeed.

    Everytown would not disclose how much it was spending on the weekend, but said funds are from a combination of group’s money and fundraising efforts leading up to the convention.

  • NYPD’s Friendly Twitter Hashtag Campaign Backfires Big-Time (Police Brutality Pics Fiesta)

    The New York Police Department tried its hand at social outreach on Twitter Tuesday, deploying what was supposed to be a feel-good #MyNYPD hashtag.

    The social media campaign backfired almost immediately, with users instead tweeting photos of instances of alleged police brutality by NYPD officers.

    The hashtag hijacking has since gone viral. It should be noted, though, that not all the images being passed around are instances of real police brutality and many lack context.

  • Texas Gov. Rick Perry Challenges Andrew CuHomo to Debate on Jobs!

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who will be arriving in New York this afternoon for a trip trying to lure businesses to the Lone Star State, offered a Texas-sized take-down of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s record on job creation this morning and challenged him to a debate.

    “I’d be more than happy to sit down and have a thoughtful conversation, a debate with Gov. Cuomo over the issues that face us as a state and talk about the economic policies and compare New York to Texas,” said Mr. Perry, speaking on New York Post columnist Fred Dicker’s Live from the State Capitol radio show. “I think that would be not only interesting and fun, but a thoughtful way for us as a country to have a discussion between two of the major states in America, talking about which one of these policies are actually better for our people.”

    Mr. Cuomo has made a point of emphasizing tax cuts and job growth as he runs for re-election, but Mr. Perry quickly brushed aside those efforts. Asked about an ad campaign Mr. Cuomo has been running advertising the state’s new tax-free zones to lure new businesses, Mr. Perry ran through a list of companies that had relocated or expanded into Texas recently, and also pointed to New York’s high net migration rate.

    “There’s a real message there: More wealth left the state of New York and California than any other two states in the nation,” said Mr. Perry. “And you have to be honest about this: It’s about tax policy, it’s about regulatory policy, it’s about the legal system, and then it’s about a skilled workforce.”

    Still the Republican had some kind–if veiled–words for Mr. Cuomo. He pointed to a Tax Foundation tax burden tally that moved New York up two spots from 50th to 48th place this year.

    “I will say, in New York’s credit, they’ve moved in the right direction,” said Mr. Perry. “Of course there was only one direction you could go in New York.”

  • Whoa There: Commie De Blasio’s Horse Drawn Carriage Ban has stalled (Criminal has been exposed)

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City’s horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years.

    A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues. And as he nears his fourth month in office, he has encountered enough resistance from the usually compliant City Council to slow his plans again, now saying an industry he calls cruel and inhumane will be gone by year’s end.

    What changed?

    For one, a media blitz led by actor Liam Neeson has portrayed the horse-drawn carriage industry as an iconic, romantic part of New York that provides about 400 jobs, many to Irish immigrants. In a series of editorials and TV interviews, he has said the operators treat their 200 working horses like their own children.

  • BLOOMTURD INSANELY WRONG THINKING HE CAN BUY HIS WAY TO HEAVEN

    Billionaire former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s revelation that he thinks he has already earned a spot in Heaven with his campaigns to destroy the Second Amendment proves just how arrogant and delusional he has become with his riches, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

    Bloomberg, quoted by the New York Times discussing his latest gun control effort, dubbed “Everytown for Gun Safety,” said, “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

    CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb called the remark “outrageous and revealing.”

    “One does not earn his way into Heaven by trampling on the civil rights of his fellow citizens,” Gottlieb observed. “Bloomberg can’t buy himself a spot inside the Pearly Gates by using his riches to erode the freedoms of people who do not enjoy his affluence.”

    The anti-gun former New York mayor launched a $50 million project using a slickly-produced video to push viewers’ emotional hot buttons. He boasted that he will target politicians who oppose his anti-gun demagoguery. It is this sort of activity that Bloomberg believes will get him a front row seat in the hereafter.

    “The next thing we’re likely to hear from Bloomberg is that after he waltzes into Heaven, he intends to replace God and make himself the new CEO,” Gottlieb remarked. “This man’s head is growing faster than the halo he thinks he will be wearing after he checks out of his earthly environs.

    “I have a piece of bad news for Mr. Bloomberg,” he concluded. “The real estate market in Heaven for his kind of self-aggrandizing pomposity dried up long ago. However, we’re certain that if he continues to throw his money around to deprive honest citizens of their God-given liberties and human rights, he’s far more likely to spend eternity pulling weeds behind a shack in a place where it is always hot and there isn’t any shade.”


  • NY Times: Returning Vets Could Lead to Emergence of Racist Terrorist Groups

    The Juvenile Author

    I was brought up to believe that getting an education, especially a “higher” education, including advanced collegiate degrees, implied that you were more intelligent. The process is supposed to broaden your thought processes, deepen your understanding of the world around you. Apparently, those beliefs could not be more wrong.

    Thursday, in the New York Times, there was an insidious article by one Kathleen Belew. Ms. Kathleen Belew is an “a postdoctoral fellow in history at Northwestern University, is at work on a book on Vietnam veterans and the radical right.” She is also a “Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in History, is also a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis. She received her Ph.D from Yale University for ‘Theaters of War: Paramilitarism, Mercenaries, and the Racist Right from Vietnam to Oklahoma City.’ While at Rutgers she will be teaching history courses, including the ‘Aftermath of the Vietnam War’ and ‘The American Vigilante.’”

    Ms. Belew is obviously highly educated. So much so, that she now deems it her place to grace the rest of us with her opinions on the Vietnam war, Vietnam war veterans, veterans in general, and best of all, how those of us who have gone to war and come home with brain injuries, have the potential to become racist terrorists.

    I thought I had read it or seen it all – all types of stupid and uneducated comments about Veterans being “dangerous, volatile, violent or even terrorists.”

    The author of this article, Kathleen Belew, could possibly be the worst of them all!

  • Suspected pipe bomb was box of paintbrushes (Pussification of the USA)

    The San Mateo County bomb squad destroyed a suspected pipe bomb Thursday in Half Moon Bay and later discovered the supposed threat was just a set of paintbrushes, authorities said.

    A resident walking in the 500 block of Kelly Street noticed something that looked like a pipe bomb, and reported the discovery to authorities about 11:06 a.m., San Mateo County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said. The sheriff’s office and bomb squad responded to the area near Cabrillo Highway to eliminate any potential threat.

  • Libtards at Washington Post Quietly Correct Justice John Paul Stevens’s Grievous Error about Gun Laws

    Last week, former Justice John Paul Stevens penned an op-ed for the Washington Post on “The Five Words that Can Fix the Second Amendment.” The piece is actually an excerpt from his new book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution. In the book, Stevens suggests some changes that would ratify his view of cases in which he stridently dissented, such as Citizens United and Heller.

    Stevens’s dissent in Heller, the case in which a 5-4 Court held that the Second Amendment conveys an individual right to own guns even for those not part of a militia, is largely re-hashed in his Washington Post op-ed. In addition, there is, or was, a glaring error that the Post has since corrected sub rosa, that is, without acknowledging at the bottom that the piece was edited. As Josh Blackman originally reported, and thankfully preserved by excerpting, the first version contained this error:

    Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered automatic weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents.

    As Josh and others noted, not only were automatic weapons were not used at any recent high-profile mass shooting, they’ve been essentially illegal in the U.S. since 1934 and since 1986 they’ve been almost impossible to come by. Justice Stevens also repeated his error a few paragraphs down:

    Thus, even as generously construed in Heller, the Second Amendment provides no obstacle to regulations prohibiting the ownership or use of the sorts of automatic weapons used in the tragic multiple killings in Virginia, Colorado and Arizona in recent years.

    When you view the piece now, however, the words have magically disappeared. But they have not, apparently, disappeared from Justice Stevens’s book, which went to press with those errors. I don’t have a copy, but I checked by searching the inside of the book on Amazon for the word “automatic.”

  • Scumbag Al Sharpton became a mob rat in order to dodge drug charges says new report

    The Rev. Al Sharpton may claim he wore a wire for the feds because he had been threatened by the mob — but a new report says he turned rat to save himself after a federal drug sting.

    The FBI “flipped” the bombastic reverend after agents confronted him with a surveillance video showing him discussing cocaine with an ­undercover agent, The Smoking Gun Web site said Wednesday.

    During that March 1983 conversation, Sharpton wore a cowboy-like hat that was garish even by the rabble-rousing preacher’s 1980s standards.

    He later showed up at a Manhattan apartment for another meeting that June with the agent, who was posing as a “former South American druglord seeking to launder money through boxing promotions,” the report said.

    Instead, Sharpton was met by G-men who were not undercover — and who showed him the “drug” video, the Web site said, citing a source familiar with Sharpton’s secret FBI file.

    “The panicked reverend agreed — on the spot — to cooperate with federal agents,” The Smoking Gun said.
