Moonbat nuttiness in Chapel Hill

Posted by: ST on May 9, 2006 at 10:02 am

Yes, we have our share of moonbats in the red state of North Carolina, too:

CHAPEL HILL – President Bush should be impeached, Town Council members unanimously decided Monday night.

The vote was the local body’s latest foray into national politics. A local Republican dismissed it as a “move of desperation.”

Council members supported a petition from the grass-roots Elders for Peace group, which laid out three charges to justify impeachment:

* Bush “lied to Congress and the American people to launch an illegal war of aggression”;

* Bush violated human rights by torturing prisoners at home and abroad and detaining suspects with no due process;

* Bush “unleashed a massive unconstitutional wiretap and spying operation against the people of the United States.”

“I think this compels us — you and all thinking people in the United States — to move for impeachment,” said Nancy Elkins, an Elders for Peace member. “If we don’t, what are future citizens of our country going to think we were doing when we were allowing all of this?”

With little discussion, the council passed a resolution that said, in part, that Bush “‘has acted contrary to law, and violated his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States.”

They had also passed a resolution in October calling for an end to the war in Iraq. And previously they had lodged a protest resolution against the war before it was launched in 2003.

Council member Mark Kleinschmidt thanked the group Monday for “so eloquently distilling what so many people in our community think.”

I think the town council of Chapel Hill (I should note – even though it’s obvious – that Chapel Hill and the surrounding areas are solidly liberal) should pay more attention to what’s going on in our own back yard, oh like the charges of massive corruption that have been alleged against NC House Democratic Speaker Jim Black and some “associates” of his (some of whom also serve in state government elected positions).

Instead, they choose to ignore it and engage in a ‘symbolic’ vote against the President that holds no weight with anyone outside of the Democratic base in Chapel Hill. Yet another instance of Red Meat Democrats in action.

    :-w Do you really think that Speaker Jim Black’s violations warrant more scrutiny than a War? Please consider the cost to America as a whole – the number of soldiers dead and permanently disabled, the fiscal cost and deficit spending. Is what Black did right – NO, but you failed to mention “the Hammer” in this line of thinking. If it is wrong, its wrong for all! Don’t tell me you have double standards – that’s worse than waffling! If Clinton had done half of this you be shouting from the roof tops!

  2. “Do you really think that Speaker Jim Black’s violations warrant more scrutiny than a War?”

    On a national level, no, but on a local level – this is a town council. Their little “resolution” means absolutely nothing.

    “Please consider the cost to America as a whole – the number of soldiers dead and permanently disabled, the fiscal cost and deficit spending.”

    I have and do. I fail to see what that has to do with the town council.

    “Is what Black did right – NO, but you failed to mention “the Hammer” in this line of thinking. If it is wrong, its wrong for all!”

    You’re obviously new here and haven’t read what I’ve said about Tom DeLay. Don’t jump to conclusions about me until you’ve read more. Just a little helpful hint that might make you look a little less foolish next time you comment.

    “Don’t tell me you have double standards – that’s worse than waffling!”

    Nope, but I’d bet you do.

    “If Clinton had done half of this you be shouting from the roof tops!”

    Actually, no. If Clinton had taken Iraq more seriously, I’d be thinking he wasn’t half the wuss I thought he was. Next?

  3. - Well thats was certainly a waste of bandwidth. If Clinton would have spent more time dealing with the Bin Laden/al Qaeda, instead of lifting the hems of blue dresses, 2700+ people might still be alive and enjoying their day right now.

    – Left commenters as a group seem to always be arguing areas that are months/years/decades old. playing with old news hand granades they find on the road as they wander aimlessly, which immediatly blow up in their collectivistic faces the minute they post some feckless backward idiocy. Not only a waste of bandwidth, but everyones time.

    – Bang **==

    “Aging Commies For Surrender” is what they are. Just because they are getting elderly does not mean they deserve or should receive respect. They are fools and traitors to Liberty. Screw ‘em!

    Cut off their Medicare! Nyeeaahh!
