I Blame Sarah Palin!


Southern Poverty Law Center website triggered FRC shooting

The Family Research Council shooter, who pleaded guilty today to a terrorism charge, picked his target off a “hate map” on the website of the ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center which is upset with the conservative group’s opposition to gay rights.

Floyd Lee Corkins II pleaded guilty to three charges including a charge of committing an act of terrorism related to the August 15, 2012 injuring of FRC’s guard. He told the FBI that he wanted to kill anti-gay targets and went to the law center’s website for ideas.

At a court hearing where his comments to the FBI were revealed, he said that he intended to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” The shooting occurred after an executive with Chick-Fil-A announced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said that the Southern Poverty Law Center should take responsibility for the shooting and take down their hate map.

“The day after Floyd Corkins came into the FRC headquarter and opened fire wounding one of our team members, I stated that while Corkins was responsible for the shooting, he had been given a license to perpetrate this act of violence by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has systematically and recklessly labeled every organization with which they disagree as a ‘hate group,'” he said.

I blame Sarah Palin. Riverdaughter told me that Sarah is the root of all evil and Riverdaughter is NEVER wrong.

(Has it really been two years already?)

    Hagel Vote Postponed

    The Senate Armed Services Committee will not hold a vote Thursday on the confirmation of secretary of defense nominee Chuck Hagel.

    The office of Sen. Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.) confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon that the vote has been delayed and that new date has been set.

    “Hagel vote won’t be tomorrow in Armed Services,” Politico’s Manu Raju tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “Levin: “The committee’s review of the nomination is not yet complete.’” Foreign Policy’s Josh Rogin also confirmed the delay.

    Hagel’s murky financial entanglements are a major concern in the delay, according to sources close to the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC). Also of concern is a committee investigation into how Hagel and his Senate office handled a 2007 sexual harassment allegation made by a former staff member.

    I used to support the Southern Poverty Law Center, but then they got really irresponsible with who they labeled a hate group and who they refused to label. IMO, it should be more about the degree of violence a group is advocating, not what their political beliefs are. SPLC apparently doesn’t agree with me.

    Speaking of supporting gays, (but not with violence of course LOL), I’m really conflicted about what’s going on with the cake baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian wedding. The state has stepped in and some congresscritters and they’re all trying to mandate that you must serve everybody regardless of your own political/religious beliefs. I say hell no, you can’t force businesses to serve customers they don’t want to! On the other hand, what if a restaurant decided it didn’t like hispanics, blacks, gays, and wouldn’t let them eat lunch there? We’ve been there and done that in this country.

    I really wish government would just butt out, they make things worse. In a perfect world, these customers would go somewhere else, maybe spread the word and cost this guy other customers. Trying to mandate that this guy should be forced to violate his own beliefs isn’t a good solution.

      what happened to the right to refuse service. I have seen that sign in stores for years

      • Erica says:

        Right helen, “no shirt, no shoes, no service.” But those superficial things are easy to change–just go put on a shirt or shoes, no big deal. However, if a baker won’t make a wedding cake for me when I marry, there is no action I can take to still get the service there. It’s just a cake, sure, and I can go somewhere else. But what if it’s another venue, say, the best cancer surgeon in town, or an attorney who specializes in some esoteric aspect of the law that I happen to need? Then it’s not such a small thing. I’m not saying the government should get involved, but that kind of discrimiantion, refusing service on the basis of who someone is as opposed to what they do, should not be sanctioned in the US, in my opinion.

    • angienc (D) says:

      Forget civil rights — it’s flat out bad business to refuse to make a wedding cake for ANY customer — do you know how profit a bakery makes on those overpriced cakes? It’s just like that story I saw a while back about a bridal salon in CA where the owner refused to sell a wedding dress to a lesbian for a lesbian wedding — are you kidding me? They are in the business of selling ridiculously over-priced dresses that are worn once — I’d be catering to the lesbian crowd with “buy one, get one half off” or some such crap like that. Nonetheless, the baker and that wedding shop lady should go out of business on the basis of being BAD AT BUSINESS, not because the government intervenes.

    I just saw on tv where grocery stores may close the in store bakeries and salad bars due to FDA new rule on showing calorie count. If you get it wrong it would be a federal office.

    Is there anything this backtrack bunch will not fuck up in this country?
    I am so sick of them

      Rihanna was on TV explaining how they never argue anymore and how he’s not the same person he was…..said every single battered woman ever.

      It was really frustrating to watch because unlike Taylor Swift, Rihanna doesn’t believe that she’s a role model to young girls and has a responsibility towards them. Taylor said, absolutely I have a responsibility to my fans as a role model.

      I really hate these celebrities that claim they have a right to be happy and make their own decisions as if that will have no impact on millions of young girls watching them. When you’ve been blessed with great fame and fortune, the least you can do is realize that it’s not just about you anymore.

      • angienc (D) says:

        She’s right.
        But see, I didn’t like it under GWB & I really don’t like it under Obama — who’s made it worse in that he is flat out targeting US citizens to boot — and I didn’t vote for *either* of them (Powers — as much as she occasionally hits the nail on the head, can’t say the same).

    • angienc (D) says:

      BTW – I have a HUGE issue with the caption about the “Memo giving Pres. Obama authority to kill Americans with drones” — that’s a fucking impossibility — the memo doesn’t give him shit. His authority comes under the Constitution & the Constitution sure as hell doesn’t give him the authority to kill US citizens without due process.

      • yttik says:

        I know! With a straight face the media actually reported that “President Obama could issue an executive order authorizing himself……” Uh, no, that might be how dictators grant themselves authority, but not in America.

        Can you imagine somebody claiming that they didn’t break the law because they sent themselves a memo declaring it was okay? Well actually we don’t have to imagine, that’s basically what the drone memo tries to claim.

    I remember a teacher telling our class that it was up to us to provide for our own old age. At the time I thought this was a terrible thing to say. You know the idea the 1 or 2 parents can provide for any number of kids, but the kids would not provide for the parent. As I got older and got married and had kids, I began to understand what he meant. Raising a family takes time and money. But what has happened to many of today’s elderly is all they saved for their old age has been wiped out and many are having problems. I would trust family before government to take care of grandmom and granddad.
    On the other side many elderly are still caring for kids and grandkids due to backtrack’s economy.
    I guess the new democratic party does not understand family first

    • Jadzia says:

      I think it is a tough issue demographically. Gen X is a small cohort that has gotten screwed economically over and over again; for me, it’s not a lack of will to help, it’s a lack of means. When my grandparents finally spent down the last of their savings, I took on an extra job to send $1K/month (in addition to the $7K/month my aunt was taking out of her own retirement fund–they needed in-home care, refused to live near any of the younger family, and moving to their locale wasn’t an option for any of the youngs), and it was REALLY tough because we were trying to raise our own family at the same time, you know? Multiply that by millions of people in their 30s and early 40s who will have to support more and more elderly (particularly because so many of us also have stepparents, who I for one could not turn my back on–but for an only child, that’s 4 elders to support).

      Our story had a happy ending: Grandma inherited about $3 million unexpectedly (in 2010, when there was no estate tax), and even more unexpectedly, she reimbursed us. Grandpa died in October (well, that part was pretty darned unhappy for us, but I think not for him), Grandma got a couple of puppies, and she is able to have some happiness after 10 years of Grandpa’s health that was so bad he had a miserable quality of life.

    Jezebel: What’s the best age to have an abortion

    • DeniseVB says:

      Dear God, what’s happening to us ? I wanted to be a mommy during my liberal years. Abortion never crossed my mind or was ever a part of a conversation. My second born changed my life forever with his special needs, I was barely an experienced mom much less an experienced special challenges expert, but my life changed for the better because of him, the world stopped revolving around ME.

      #3 SURPRISE ! I refused all *tests* to predict s/he’s, uhm, prenatal *condition* because I had a “history” of “special”. Turned out, she was the perfect healthy baby girl, I’m not religious, but figured she was God’s reward for surviving her brothers. And yes, I demanded to shut it down, wouldn’t leave the hospital w/o a tubal ligation. I knew my limits, but insurance in 1980 didn’t approve the sterilization of women under 35. I convinced them I’d “kill myself” if I got pregnant again. It worked 😀

    I have been learning how to braise meat. It’s a wonderful way to tenderize tougher cuts of beef, which are usually the cheaper cuts as well.

    The key is low heat and patience.

    Apparently Russell Brand’s new show on FX got horrible ratings.

    So they expanded it to 1 hour and changed the format to be more like other late night shows.

    I still won’t be watching.

    • Must be a sign of FX’s impending doom. Whoever made the decision to hire Brand in the first place is dumber than snot, and that’s pretty difficult to pull off without a bunch of effort.

    CBS issues stern warning to Grammy-goers: cover up!

    CBS doesn’t want any wardrobe malfunctions at the Grammys.

    The Tiffany Network tersely reminded all “talent appearing on camera” to cover up — especially “buttocks and female breasts” and the “genital region,” according to an internal memo exposed by Deadline Hollywood.

    “Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered,” a network suit wrote in the titillating email.

    “Thong-type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare, fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic.”

    The network doesn’t want any viewers to see what’s under those sheer outfits.

    “Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples,” according to the internal memo.

    “Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”
