‘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 […]

This TIME journo asked absurd WH question; The answers will crack you up

http://twitter.com/#!/flyoverangel/status/520050186924462080 Ding, ding, ding! But look at what we have to deal with now: Basically sums up journalism post 2009. Trust and never verify. MT @HotlineJosh First instinct is to trust what the WH is saying — Mike Mulraney (@mullrainee) October 9, 2014 That actually happened. As Twitchy readers know, when the news of a reported Obama administration cover-up broke, a politics editor for National Journal was utterly shocked that the White House is not to be […]

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 […]

‘Political reasons?’ NC media outlets pulling Hagan story sparks questions

http://twitter.com/#!/lachlan/status/529267317570826240 It was recently reported that a company co-owned by N.C. Sen. Kay Hagan’s husband had been the recipient of stimulus money. A story from WBTV in Charlotte expanded on that, reporting that a state agency had recommended “further legal review” of the stimulus grant. The Charlotte Observer published the WBTV story on the paper’s website. The story at both sites later disappeared. The Observer explained why they pulled the story (cached version here). The Hagan story […]

Rep. Chu claims immigration restrictions violate ‘our founding principles’

http://twitter.com/#!/RepJudyChu/status/495372263450226688 According to Democrat Rep. Judy Chu of Pasadena, California, Republicans who oppose amnesty have turned their backs on the founding principles of our country. Is she right? The U.S. Constitution says little about immigration policy, although it does dictate that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion” [emphasis added]. According to law professor Bill Ong Hing, author of Defining America: Through Immigration Policy, U.S. colonies […]
