According to veteran right wing Republican direct mail consultant, Richard Viguerie, a poll he commissioned indicates that 92% of conservatives believe President Obama is a Socialist or Marxist.  Did they have lobotomies or is it the invasion of Roger Ailes?

May 3, 2010

We entered the BuzzFlash offfice through shards of glass this Monday morning, since our place of work in Chicago was burglarized and vandalized.

This month, ironically, marks our 10th anniversary of tenaciously fighting right wing nut jobs, corporate personhood, and advocating for the common good.

You can help us keep up the fight through this difficult time by purchasing a progressive premium or donating here.

We cannot let them win.

BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Yes, "Christ Would be Arrested in AZ: Swarthy, Walking through Desert, No Money, No Identification Papers, No Driver's License, Long Haired." And don't forget, he'd be shabbily clothed: the perfect illegal immigrant profile.

Thanks to Madame Silverspurs of Democratic Underground for the insight and poster that the media ignored during a protest against the racist Arizona law, but says it all:

MARC PERKEL FOR BUZZFLASH

This week President Obama is going to pick the next Supreme Court justice. People are talking about what kind of a justice Obama should pick. I want a justice that won't usurp the will of the voters and appoint a president like the Supreme Court did in Bush vs. Gore giving the presidency to the loser. I want a justice that understands that We the People does not mean We the Corporations and that The People are superior to the corporate world. I want a justice than understands that it is the right of the people to spy on the government and not the right of government to spy on The People. I want a justice that gives a woman more rights than they give her gun.

BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Yesterday, BuzzFlash noted that the Arizona State Board of Education has now prohibited teachers who don't speak perfect English or have perfect grammar from teaching in Arizona schools to bi-lingual students -- and that would definitely disqualify George W. Bush. A BuzzFlash reader e-mailed us and noted that neither would Sarah Palin qualify to teach English in Arizona.

BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

As you may know, the Arizona Department of Education is now requiring another dreadful bigoted anti-immigrant action: to prohibit teachers who don't speak perfect English from teaching in the state.  Well that would exclude George W. Bush, our past President, to be sure. This is not written by BuzzFlash, but we got it anonymously in an e-mail and couldn't resist posting it.  So to whomever wrote it, well done indeed!

Leviticus 19:33-34

When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt.

Thanks to Andew Sullivan for pointing out one of the many contradictions between religious blowhards and the heart of the Bible.

Where is Drill Baby Drill Now?

MARC PERKEL FOR BUZZFLASH

During the 2008 election the Republicans, raising their angry voices, were all chanting "Drill Baby Drill" as the solution to America's energy needs. Now with 200,000 gallons of oil a day pouring into the Gulf the reality of why we need to get away from oil is washing up on our shores.
