"Crazy to Everyone but theNew York Times

The paper bends over backward to find justification for Christopher Dorner’s murderous rampage."

The NY Times had exactly the same attitude about Joe Stalin and Fidel Castro. For the Times, there are no enemies on the left.

@paulejb Me too. It would've be hilarious to watch someone lose worse than Romney.

@paulejb He also said:

"LGBT community and supporters, the same way you have the right to voice your opinion on acceptance of gay marriage, Chick Fil-A has a right to voice their beliefs as well. That’s what makes America so great. Freedom of expression. Don’t be (expletive) and boycott/degrade their business and customers who patronize the locations. They make some damn good chicken! Vandalizing (graffiti) their locations does not help any cause."

Like a lot of conservatives were saying. And he also said:

"Mr. Bill Cosby, you are a reasonable and talented man who has spoken the truth of the cultural anomalies within the black communities that need to change now. The black communities’ resentment toward you is because they don’t like hearing the truth or having their clear and evident dirty laundry aired to the nation."

Like your hero, Thomas Sowell, has said.

Oh, and he also likes guns. Just like you.

Maybe he's more like you than you'd like to admit, paulie.

@paulejb Perhaps because they are to busy tracking right wing militias who are buying guns like they were going out of style.

@paulejb Wow, how deep did you have to dig to find a youtube video with less than 200 views featuring a "black professor" no one's ever heard of?

I guess you've already gone after Hispanics today, and you got your "Hussein" in, so it's on to slurring 'blacks' and 'elitists'.

paulie's got a schedule to keep.

You make me sad. You try so hard to be stupid, vapid and ignorant. I guess if one tea partier does something awful then all of you are like that.

And why would liberals support a libertarian?

@paulejb You don't really want me to dig out all the right wing videos calling for killing Obama?

@MementoMori @paulejb ,

"The New York Times and Joseph Stalin"

"To say that Duranty's professional reputation has not held up with the passage of time would be a colossal understatement.  Now there is general agreement that he was a venal liar of epic proportions.  In pursuit of fame and fortune he wrote what he knew to be untrue about the massive, brutal crimes of Joseph Stalin and the Communist system against the people of the Soviet Union.  Strangely, though, almost all the public opprobrium seems to have fallen upon his lone shoulders and not upon those in the United States whom he pleased with his writing, that is to say, his professional and his political masters."

@MrObvious @paulejb ,

Liberals have never found a left wing tyrant or left wing spree killer that they couldn't support.

@MementoMori @paulejb ,

Not at all. The Norks are less hypocritical about their Stalinist tendencies than US college professors.

I read the post from paulejb and I was left wondering if he has finally gone over the deep end. What a bunch of stupid baloney. Jesus.

In case you were not aware, Ol' Joe went to his just reward more than a half century ago, but his evil lingers on in North Korea and on US college campuses.

@paulejb @MementoMori "Walter Duranty (1884 – October 3, 1957) was a controversial Liverpool-born, British-American journalist who served as the Moscow Bureau Chief of The New York Times (1922–36)."

You had to go back 90 years for that one. Not exactly contemporary, is it, paulie.

Sarah would have lost so hard that even the reddest states would've turned purple. I know you're a fan and all but only the crazy sliver among GOPers would've voted for her. Maybe all that winking makes you think she's some kind of intellectual titan but she's even less popular then skunks among folks. Mitt comes across like a lying dung beatle but Sarah would have made Obamas win look like the second coming of Ike, FDR and Kennedy combined.

I don't know what instrument that can measure how clueless you are but they need to mint a stronger word then 'over the deep end' for your category.

No, no, no, not dogs and ponies...turkeys.  Lots of turkeys.

@paulejb @MementoMori No Sara would have created an ever bigger dog and pony show and than cry about liberal media after she lost in a  landslide.

@paulejb @MementoMori So now you support serial killers. Good for you Troll. Perhaps we should just leave you alone on this forum and you can argue against yourself.

Paulie Translated: I'm too stinkin' lazy to hunt "facts" that may go against my heroes, but I'll dig up all the "facts" I can when it sheds my enemies in a bad light.  I'm just a no-good topper!

@paulejb @mantisdragon91 Still trying to attach Dorner to Obama, eh? Even though he supported Chick Fil A and agrees with Thomas Sowell and Bill Cosby?

Hey, maybe it's Thomas Sowell's fault. Did you consider that, paulie?
