IMPORTANT CORRECTION!

Several conservative bloggers have been repeating this misinformation (which they probably read on other rightwing blogs and news sites):

"We do know from every media source that three representatives from the White House will attend Brown's funeral tomorrow. I think that at least one of those representatives went to school with Michael Brown's mother back in high school.

In contrast, there was not a single representative from the Obama administration at the recent burial of Major General Greene at Arlington National Cemetery."


The above claim is TOTALLY WRONG. This is what happens in the right wing blog sphere. They read a false claim and it spreads like wildfire.

The fact is that President Obama's cabinet officer, Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel attended Major General Greene's funeral.

Will the right wing blogs and news sites retract their abominable lie?

Of course not.

"Right-wing media outlets criticized the Obama administration over news that three administration officials planned to attend shooting victim Michael Brown's funeral, citing the myth that the White House failed to send representation to the funeral of Maj. Gen. Harold Greene, who was killed in Afghanistan -- In reality, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel attended the two star general's service."

Happy Thanksgiving!

Even on this holiday I and my liberal friends will be hard at work greasing the skids for the nations descent into Marxism.

Somebody's got to do it.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Beth has left a new comment on your post "HAPPY THANKSGIVING":

So in closing....

I pray God may continue to bless these Great United States of America and all of us legally within it, along with our beloved United States Armed Forces and their families today and everyday while their days and nights are spent protecting truth, justice and the American way our founders and forefathers kindly built and left behind for us to enjoy and protect. All in order to pass down to the next generations. Let us not fail them and today we celebrate and tomorrow it's back to work helping to save the country from where it's rapidly headed towards Socialism via the leftist and Marxist administration presently in office.. So Happy Thanksgiving to all the good people, the bad people, the people who can't spell, the people who can spell, the ones making great comments, the jerks, the kids who text, the funny people,the people trying to defend someone they care about, the police, the town ,the county the liberals and the conservatives. I want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you (yep, even the Liberals) I'm sure tonight many of us will be sitting around a dinner table somewhere with at least one other person who does not share our views...maybe that person is somebody we are even thankful for...or maybe not, but I'm sure all of us are thankful for the country we live in..even if we don't always agree on what is best for it. Either way can we all get along for at least one night? Maybe?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Thank you, Arthurstone.

Beth left a disgusting, racist hateful anti-Muslim comment down below, which I removed.

She then came here and posted a phoney, insincere Thanksgiving "blessing" after savaging and defaming millions of Muslim-Americans.

A few generations ago, she would have been posting the same vile slanders against the Jews.

I'm sorry Beth is so consumed by ignorance and hatred. Really.

Dave Miller said...

have a great day shaw...
bendiciones!

Capt. Fogg said...

Ah yes, it was deleted whilst I was writing a reply. Good -- now I have something to be thankful for!

Think we ought to invent an alternate holiday for these loving folks -- like Hategiving or Muckslinging?

TRUTH 101 said...

I love the irony. Beth "aborted" her own post.

Happy Thanksgiving Shaw. Sofie says hi also. She thinks you're pretty cute yourself.

Patrick M said...

Have a happy one, even the cowardly Beth.

(O)CT(O)PUS said...

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow creatures above and below he waves. Is there at least one brave soul who will try my noodle recipe?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Thanks for the recipe. I love noodle pudding!

dmarks said...

Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, and to turn this post onto a better track, I also wish a Happy Eid to Muslim-Americans, who are fortunate enough to have feasting and family fellowship continue tomorrow, as well.

Jim said...

My wife and I spent a most glorious day here in SoCal. Hope you had a fun day as well.

We had for our Thanksgiving meal a most bodacious Mexican cuisine. Ah, I love the seafood.

Then we saw the movie New Moon. Great flick. Both of us highly recommend you see it if you haven't already.

Blessings to you all. ;-)

“Cowardly Beth.”
Hey Mr. Patrick, get a backbone and tell it like it is, it's Obama's fault. Tell these libs what they don’t want to hear.. It’s no longer Bush’s war, it’s no longer Bush’s economy. Tell them that Obama screwed up, and this is now HIS era of responsibility. Start owning up to them and stop trying to pander to these people! BETH IS RIGHT... You are a wimp. You can’t take both sides just to gain readers. Read the blogs of these people. They say one thing to you and another on their blogs. Aren’t you beginning to see a pattern here? Please tell me you are joking. Has Shaw, or TAO or Truth admitted to even one of Obama’s colossal screw ups? NO! Not at all, if you listen to those pussies, it’s always Bush’s fault, or Cheney’s fault, or Rush’s fault, or Glenn Beck’s fault. And they are still on the attack of Sarah Palin, their current target.
Poor misunderstood Barack Obama, he inherited everything. Even this massive deficit that he so conveniently created, to put this country so deep in debt that we will never get out. .
Bush had between 4-6% unemployment rate under his rule for all 8 years, now it’s OVER 10 percent and still rising.. Patrick, you have every right to disagree with me, but don’t make yourself into the schmuck they are taking your for. Don’t let them blame Obama’s socialist policies on President Bush. Obama blaming Bush for his Socialist status is like Stalin getting peeved that people tagged him a murderous Communist and trying to push the blame for his reputation on Lenin. Sorry Barry- when you act like a Socialist you get labeled like a Socialist. Bush has not a damn thing to do with that occurrence. These Mental Midgets don’t know a thing about real Americans. Everybody around this guy is a socialist, a Marxist, a communist, a statist, a collectivist, a redistributions, & hide behind the labels of liberal or progressive. From his Marxist father, to his Marxist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, to his Revs Wright & Moss, & almost everyone he has brought in to run his administration, are hardline lefty socialist. I always thought more of you Patrick, but apparently I was wrong... Get a backbone You are a WUSS.
Whenever anyone blames anything on Obama, that little cockroach TAO comes out of its crack in the woodwork and screams racism, as does SHAW!

Arthurstone said...

Ah yes.

A 'real American' speaks.

Thanks Always. It's such a pleasure to encounter the species in full flight. 'Wuss'. 'Pussies'. 'Cockroach'.

You are indeed the real thing. Always and all ways.

Happy Black Friday.

I'm Always Right,

Do you feel better now that you've rid yourself of that bile? What happened, did you eat a bad yam yesterday?

Please limit your name-calling to your own blog where you can bellow like a bull at your followers to obey your orders.

Patrick is a grown man with a mind of his own. He doesn't need a meddlesome, foul-mouthed busybody to tell him how to think or with whom he may or may not associate.

It obviously rankles you that he and I can actually have an adult conversation with each other and not use the guttery language you need to employ to express your thoughts.

No one invited you here; no one addressed you nor spoke of you here--I do not visit your blog.

The only reason for your viral attack on Patrick is for you to beat him into submitting to your authority--IOW you're doing what authoritarians do when their followers stray from their dogma.

Your kind does this all the time.

You bleat like goats about how the other side is acting like Stalinists while commanding everyone to follow your orders, fall into line, or be damned.

You've insulted Patrick and made a complete ninny of yourself.

I'm leaving your comment up so that others may enjoy its awesome idiocy.

Shaw Kenawe said...

From "I'm Always Right's" blog:

I don’t intimidate easily!
Don't be calling me names or telling me to shut up! I will make you go into a corner curl up and cry! That is a promise!


So what did IAR do?

He/she/it came to MY blog called me and my commenters names and essentially told Patrick M. to "shut up" because IAR didn't like Patrick calling the cowardly Beth a coward!

It's a dull, rainy day here in Beantown, but IAR brought tears of laughter to my eyes.

There is nothing funnier than a self-righteous marm making a tragic fool of itself.

TAO said...

Yeah, Iamalwaysright...

Just another Heil Helga wanna be...

I do believe she/he just had a sex change operation because just a couple of weeks ago the profile picture showed some guy with a beard...

But just like all the other loony tunes of the Heil Helga boot lickers group....they pop in dump a load of anger and then if you happen to chase them to their blogs they start whining about 'you are mean, you are nasty" and then they 'demand' that you go away....

Then they delete your comments and ban you from their site!

What a bunch....

Hey, Shaw, remember when all we heard was how "Bush inherited...." and the folks on the right spent 8 years blaming everything on Clinton?

The Saint said...

It's funny how all these lefties defend each other. No matter what.. I just read this coward Patrick's blog and say what you wannt to about this person "I'm Always Right" bur he or she is always right. This punk Patrick IS a coward. He calls himself a republican but sleeps with whoever butters his bread.
Not to be picky, Patrick (for I do agree with some of your posts,I just loathe the idea of your ass-kissing the libs), but who do you think gave The White house Snob his messiah name in the first place?
That’s right – the syncophantic media, who just loves one of those “minority inspiration stories” if the person happens to be a liberal.


I wonder when people are going to wake up. The plight of gays and lesbians is similar to that of the blacks in their quest for civil rights. Who stood in the doorways of the institutions of learning in the south or impeded integration? Governor Orville Faubus, a Democrat in Arkansas, George Wallace, Governor of Alabama, and the ax-handle restauranteur who became a Governor of Georgia; Democrats all. Yet, 90% of blacks still vote Democrat while the 7% who are Republicans are called Uncle Toms. In essence the civil rights demonstrations were grassroots similar to the tea parties of today.
Sorry Patrick, but Once again it is up to us to educate these ignorant liberals. And if you don't have the guts to do it, step aside and stop your pandering to them. Your "Cool' 4 letter words do not a MAN make.

Anonymous said...

It's funny how all these conservatives try to defend each other. Yep, it's definitely time for the popcorn. More than likely Beth is right about Patrick. Even if she is a loon.
But in America, even these skanks have to defend each other..
But I can give Beth credit for one thing , at least she has principles.
I can't say the same about Patrick.
By the way... This blog is even better than a Soap Opera's Message Board

Shaw Kenawe said...

It's interesting to read that Anonymous @ 9:48 agrees with Beth, who he/she/it calls a "loon."

More proof of what inspires the present-day conservative movement.

They love their loonies.

Limbaugh, Beck, Palin, Beth. Makes sense to me.

LOL!

Shaw, I didn't say that I agreed with her... Not at all..

TAO said...

Yes, Anon,

Idiots have principles too!

Don't confuse anti social hatred for principles...

TAO said...

Ah, yes, The Saint...

Another reactionary right blogger who wants to score points with his breathern at TCU...

So, come over here and talk stupid and then announce your success at TCU and all of the sudden you have street creds and all of the minions will follow you and write one line "you go girl..." type of comments to everything your every post...

In case you haven't noticed the south switched their alliance from the Democrats to the Republicans BECAUSE of the Democrats support of the Civil Rights bill...

The stupidity and racism is still the same, the party affiliation has changed...

Comparing tea baggers to civil rights marches is really a HOOT!

Let me know when the dogs and fire hoses are unleashed on the teabaggers, let me know when teabaggers are murdered.....

The Saint said...

Hey TAO or Whatever your choice of a dictators name may be today.
Can I interrupt your GRAND STANDING performance and ask you what the hell are you talking about? And who or what in the world is " TCU "?

The Saint said...

TAO SAID!
"Let me know when the dogs and fire hoses are unleashed on the teabaggers, let me know when teabaggers are murdered"

"let me know when teabaggers are murdered"

So you are advocating murdering conservatives? Disagree with them if you may, but to advocate murdering conservatives! Wow, that's a new low even for the likes of a scunbag like you.

Shaw Kenawe said...

The Saint thinks "TAO" is a dictator's name?


Why are we not surprised?

TAO said...

No, The Saint...

I was thinking about developing a reality based televsion show...

Every week would be a different torment that the reactionary right contestants would be subjected to and the one that endured the most and whined the most would win a prize...

Like Glenn Beck T shirts, dates with Ann Coutler, that kind of stuff...Sarah Palin's book...

We could call the show, "Taking it to RIGHTIE...."

No matter how hard I try to be a good socialist I just cannot overcome my desire to make money off of other people...

Arthurstone said...

Well done Patrick.

The Saint is quite special. You should be pleased.

From did The Saint spring? Count me a fan.

I'm a sucker for that type of phoney indignation leavened with 'scun' and 'ass-kissing'.

A bonus. Useful tips on what makes a 'man'.

I need an RSS feed straight to The Saint.

Arthurstone said...

I visited The Saint. Clearly he's lonely. He's the Maytag guy.

How to rise above the thundering herd of 'woe is us' Conservative blogs? There is no shortage of reactionary cant going unread and Shaw is absorbing far too much of the slopover.

I think of posts like The Saints as a cry for help.

As well as shameless victimhood of course.

Shaw Kenawe said...

The Saint said:

"In essence the civil rights demonstrations were grassroots similar to the tea parties of today."

Did the tea baggers have to demonstrate to vote? To go to the public schools their taxes supported but where their children were not allowed to attend? To sit a counter and eat a sandwich?

Your comparison is laughable were it not so insulting to a group of people who ACTUALLY SUFFERED AND WERE MURDERED during the Civil Rights movement.

None of you tea baggers has lost any of your Constitutional rights. NONE.

Your phoney bleating about it is getting old.

And more important YOU LIE!


As for this piece of nonsense:

"So you are advocating murdering conservatives? Disagree with them if you may, but to advocate murdering conservatives! Wow, that's a new low even for the likes of a scunbag like you."

You really need some remedial reading instruction if you actually believe TAO implied that.

It becomes more clear every day why people like you so adore Ms. Palin.

Shaw said: "The Saint thinks "TAO" is a dictator's name? Why are we not surprised?"

What history books are YOU reading? You mean you've honestly never heard of Tao King-don, the emperor of Porcelain?

Some consider him to be even worse than Alphonse Hitlist, the dictator of Chairmany.

TAO said...

Better watch it Dmarks...

I am voting for Sarah Palin so I can get a job running one of those 'Death Panels'

dmarks said...

You've got to start somewhere, Chairman Tao. It's a long march to Baywatch, the capitol of Porcelain..

Patrick M said...

Holy shit, how did I become a target of such loathing by the "right" that they feel this need to come to a liberal blog and flame a conservative (not a Republican, Saint) because he's not a lockstep idiot?

An all I did today was come wish a Happy Thanksgiving.

BTW, ImAlwaysRight, the "Beth" that drops dolt comments here is not the same Beth that is a decent fellow blogger. the idiot I refer to here spews bile, then deletes her own posts because she is a coward. She also hides her blog from the world.

So if I have to choose between narrow-minded dolts I generally agree with but haven't had an original thought since EIB went on the air and civil people that I want to intellectually club into submission with logic, then I'll pick the libs any day. At least they smile when I tell them they're full of shit.

dmarks said...

Patrick said: "BTW, ImAlwaysRight, the "Beth" that drops dolt comments here is not the same Beth that is a decent fellow blogger."

Thanks for that clarification. I was wondering!

I saw the comment by the "wrong Beth"... the rant about how you are not a real American unless you are in the exact ethnic group which is represented in signatures on the Declaration of Independence.

Arthurstone said...

Patrick typed:

'I generally agree with but haven't had an original thought since EIB went on the air and civil people that I want to intellectually club into submission with logic, then I'll pick the libs any day'

Steady Patrick.

What you're describing is still somewhere off in the future.

But it's good to live in hope.

Happy Black Friday!

Humm, Patrick, I beg to differ, but I disagree, I clicked on her logo and I was brought to her blog. It wasn't called "Beth" but it WAS her's. I believe that Shaw did the same..

Shaw Kenawe said...

The "Beth" who posts comments here and then deletes them does not allow anyone onto her blog except those who have been invited. This is what I get when I link to her name:

This blog is open to invited readers only
http://myprinciples-beth.blogspot.com/

It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog. If you think this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation.




The "Beth" Patrick mentioned who is a fellow blogger is the administrator of a blog known as "Five Ft Three."

That "Beth" does not delete her comments and anyone can post in her comment section.

TRUTH 101 said...

"Chairman TAO." Awesome Dmarks.

I wouldn't worry about the lady that thinks she's right. She was probably in Helga the Right is Right lady's doghouse for not swearing at us enough. When she got her cyber pat on the head from Helga, The Saint took note and decided he wanted one also. Thus, he came here and "Chairman TAO" exposed him for the clown he is.


But Helga is proud of them and this festive Thanksgiving weekend, that's what really matters. Jive turkeys being proud of each other.
