Emerging Fight Club Among Democrats Gets Interesting

Initially 5, two debates later, now 3 remain, and thus creating a more scintillating “Democratic Fight Club”. The past several years, Mrs. Clinton possessed a commanding lead over ALL challengers on both sides of the partisan canyon. Nevertheless, the uncoordinated efforts on the ‘LEFT’ and vigorous politburo right-wing bulldozing, that only rivals old style KGB propaganda machine, chewed through her insurmountable advantage. – Read the full article

RW Phony Christians React To PP Shooting

As All Things Democrat’s Doug Marquardt wrote yesterday, Planned Parenthood Terrorist Was A Conservative, Anti-Abortion Nut – End Of Story.

Planned Parenthood Terrorist Was A Conservative, Anti-Abortion Nut – End Of Story

In recent days, RWNJs have tried, desperately, to distance themselves from their hateful, violent rhetoric that, once again, caused a nut case to kill. They did the same thing when Gabby Giffords and numerous others were gunned down by a lunatic after Sarah Palin posted a map with rifle crosshairs targeting Giffords and other Dems with the orders “Don’t retreat, RELOAD!” In the case of Robert Lewis Dear, the Planned Parenthood terrorist who killed 3 innocent victims, the radical right initially claimed he was a registered Democrat, then downgraded to a registered independent and a “tranny” (because Dear mistakenly or jokingly checked the “female” box). – Read the full article

Friday Feminism – Abortion & Reproductive Rights, Racism and World News

Just a short one this week, gang, since I’m still recovering from surgery (which went very well, thank you). Abortion & Reproductive Rights ♀ Supreme Court Sends Mixed Messages on Reproductive Rights If there’s one thing made crystal clear by a summer’s worth of anti-Planned Parenthood smear videos, it is that anti-choice activists are intent on running the reproductive health-care provider out of business and are perfectly willing to ignore or elide the law to reach that goal. – Read the full article

Sites Dedicated To Democrats

Are you (like me) constantly frustrated by the far left‘s love/hate relationship with Democrats? You know what I’m talking about. The one-third of the left that calls the other two-thirds of the left “DINOs” or “conservativedems” or “not true progressives”. The same people who said in the last two elections, “Democrats haven’t given me a reason to vote” and “I’m staying home to teach Dems a lesson”, then spent every waking hour bitching about the RWNJs they elected by staying home or voting for a third party candidate as a protest vote. – Read the full article

From Right Wing rag Breitbart: Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush stated that while allowing Syrian and Iraqi refugees into the US is “a bad idea if there’s no screening,” “we should take every Christian Iraqi and every Christian Syrian” in a position where if they stay, they’ll die on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. – Read the full article
