NYT Op-Ed to Tibetans: Shut Up and Die, Already

.



.














Enough of the Great Battle of Hill v. Barry.

Let's perk up with stories about the brutal genocidal Han Chinese oppression in Tibet!

(Say whut? Nothing-to-see-there-move-along.)

I don't know why the Red Chinese even bother to send out their brown-nosed army of propagandists, but they do. Maybe just in case George Bush reads a newspaper? Anyhow, today's propagandist rants in the New York Times today, here. But don't waste your energy linking.

Basically, it says that since the big bad Red Chinese are so very big and so very bad, the Tibetans should just give up and die, and the rest of their world-wide supporters should just shut up and die, too, because we little mosquitoes are just so um you know so annoying.

O-kay! If you say so, Patrick!



(Why did the New York Times even bother? Because they can't publish Judy Miller's tripe anymore, so they've gotta have someone to fill the tripe quota?)

DailyKos Is a Nappy-Headed Ho?


Amazing how fast a so-called liberal Dem site turns into fascist Freeperville, is it not?

Kos commenter Alegre calls out the evil evil-doers:
If you're sick of the way Hillary - a good and decent Democrat - has been vilified and attacked... if you've EVER recommended one of my dairies on this or any other site then please join me in this effort. Let's take a stand here and now and tell the world we will no longer remain silent in the face of the sexism, anger, irrational hate, lies and attacks against Hillary. Nor will we add to the bottom line of a site that continues to lead the charge in fueling it.


Yes, then Alegre asks for Kossacks to join the strike in via comments. And Markos disables the comments.

America, America, God shed his grace on thee.

UPDATE:
Tom Watson on the flight from DKos:
But much of it comes from boorish, Stalinist behavior online - the kind of "you're either with us or against us" attitude we saw so much of when the Bush crowd was flying high. It's disturbing, particularly because so many of the targets are women. This is not the Democratic Party many of us have worked for; this is not the progressive blogosphere we've supported. Without blaming the worthy candidacy of Senator Obama in any way, this is not a progressive movement - it's a harsh, echo-filled politburo bathed in faux post-racial hosannas and the gauzy camera lens of "hope."

More of Tom Watson's commentary on the strike, here.

UPDATE II:
This campaign is bringing all our proud American sexist fratboys proudly out of the closet.
Don't miss Hitchens telling us why broads just ain't funny, here.

Can we expect a "Strange Fruit" Watermelon Tap-Dance Shuffle from Oliphant Anytime Soon?


I'm guessing -- with apologies to Project Runway's Heidi Klum, that -- racism is still OUT, while sexism is still IN!


(Oh, and don't forget about this charmer from Andrew "Low On Testosterone" Sullivan, who writes a whole long swiftboating of Hillary, based on the premise that she IS her husband, and they are ONE! Barf-inspiration, here.


On TNR, at The G Spot, here.

Robert Reich to HRC: Shut Up, Bitch

Robert Reich has been one of my heroes.

I couldn't believe that he would write this, but he did.

Sigh.

Yes, it's fine for Obamists to trash Hillary, but uppity gurrl Hillary should just give up and shut up. For the good of the party, see?

With friend like these, who needs Miss Piggy.

Acne-Faced Fratboys on Fox: Sexism is Just So Mainstream in America's Media Whore Media

Hat tip to MediaMatters:


From the March 5 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

LUNTZ: You guys -- how many of you saw Saturday Night Live? Did it humanize Hillary Clinton to you, or did it ridicule her?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don't think it ridiculed her at all. I think that, you know, she is who she is, and that's, you know, how she stands for, so --

LUNTZ: Do you think she's electable?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think she's very electable. You know, a lot of the hot stuff about Hillary is, you know, people -- since she's a woman running for the highest position in the world, she has to, you know, position herself in a place where she can be electable, and I think that she is. She has come out hard against a lot of issues, and as we just saw in this clip, you know, it's easy to see that she really is sincere in everything that she says.

LUNTZ: Andrew?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All right, but sound bites and tears or not, there's one person qualified to be the commander in chief, and that's John McCain. You know, the other candidates have this myth of experience, and McCain is the one with real experience.

LUNTZ: And by the way, Hillary Clinton would not be the first female president. Jimmy Carter was the first female president.

ALISYN CAMEROTA (co-host): Hey. All right, we have so much more with all the students from Ohio University. We'll be right back.




Because being a female is in itself an insult.

Thanks, Fox.

Thanks to all of America's splendid media whores.

Joe Wilson Draws the Curtain Back: Obama the Wizard of Oz? Uh -- NOT

A brilliant piece.

A scary piece.

It makes Obama look not merely inexperienced, but stupid.

Dangerously stupid.

I don't have time to comment, but if you're looking for some nice fresh new juicy sexism, it's here for free at WaPo.

MSNBC by SNL: The Boyz Against the Gurrl

This latest clip is hilarious -- but will it put really Misogynist Sophomore News Broadcast Cablefrat boys to shame?

Nah.
