‘Still an anti-gay extremist’: Hate for Jan Brewer in spite of veto

http://twitter.com/#!/sallykohn/status/438871012802048000 Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer announced Wednesday that she had vetoed #SB1062, which was exactly what many people had been calling on her to do. However, Brewer certainly didn’t win over Sally Kohn. But Kohn’s continued criticism was mild in comparison to some other hate that continues to be thrown Brewer’s way in spite of Wednesday’s veto: http://twitter.com/#!/Love__Nino/status/438859256318554112 http://twitter.com/#!/corinnacubillas/status/438856576594481153 http://twitter.com/#!/RobbieGeneva/status/438880329432977410 http://twitter.com/#!/Chris_A65/status/438862718628823040 http://twitter.com/#!/dlcpacfe/status/438891014615748609 http://twitter.com/#!/Torontoke/status/438848252297744384 http://twitter.com/#!/AliFameMafi/status/438838467586314240 #StayClassy.

‘White people just don’t get it’: Meme equates illegals to ’50s blacks

http://twitter.com/#!/dlgatson/status/489445814066892800 That’s true. No matter the time or place, basic logic and fact-based reasoning always escapes those on the left. http://twitter.com/#!/stevesilberman/status/489441605812629505 How are these two things even related? The top picture depicts white people—more than likely Democrats— protesting against U.S. citizens being treated equally under the law regardless of their skin color. The bottom image depicts white people—thanks to careful photo selection and cropping—protesting the unchecked flow of illegal immigrants across the southern border. The only way […]

If a Dem makes offensive immigration remarks, do the media make a sound? [video]; Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/DrewMTips/status/438404211126980608 Ah, yes. That trusty “D” can work wonders. But is it enough to help Florida Democratic congressional candidate — and failed gubernatorial hopeful — Alex Sink weather this little storm? Speaking earlier today at a debate on immigration reform, Sink, well, sunk: http://twitter.com/#!/FreeBeacon/status/438403041344360449 Let’s go to the facepalm-inducing videotape: Did we mention this woman ran for governor? http://twitter.com/#!/JohnEkdahl/status/438407614456954880 Maybe President Obama can lend her his teleprompter. Clearly, like him, Sink sucks at off-the-cuff speaking. http://twitter.com/#!/rumpfshaker/status/438417147769794560 http://twitter.com/#!/zhanover/status/438408333943242752 […]
