National Day of Mass Resistance – PHOTOS

William Teach has a few photos from today’s DOMR in Durham, NC. Doesn’t look like the event was too big a hit, does it? He has a friend in Charlotte who said the DOMR rally in my fair city was a “bust.” Surprising, as the Raleigh/Durham area (as well as Charlotte) are liberal havens.

Click on the photos themselves to see full-sized versions.

I’m sure Malkin will have a blog roundup to photos from DOMR rallies all across the country – I’ll link up to her blog when she posts the links.

Update: Oops – she’s already started posting links. Check ‘em out :)

Wow – talk about a moonbat-fest! (Courtesy LGF)

Hastert press conference

I’m not at a TV but I just read at The Political Pit Bull that House Speaker Haster was/is holding a press conference at 1 ET today. If you’re like me and not close to a TV, check this link for the video – Greg will be posting a link to the vid as soon as he can.

Update 1:34 pm: Hotline On Call posted a sneak peek as to what the presser was/is supposed to be about:

In a press conference scheduled for noon CT in Illinois, House Speaker Dennis Hastert plans to accept some measure of responsibility for failing to discover Rep. Mark Foley’s misconduct with pages, a House official said this morning. ” He is taking responsibility because the buck stops with him,” the official said.

Hastert won’t resign “because that would be giving into the Democrat party’s best wish,” the official said.

He is expected to make several announcements, including one about revisions to the page program.

Update I: The press conference has been delayed (no video at PPB or HA). However, the AP is reporting on one of the things Speaker Hastert will announce:

Hastert will ask former FBI director Louis Freeh to examine the page system and make recommendations on how to improve program almost as old as the Congress itself. Freeh headed the FBI from 1993 to 2001 during Bill Clinton’s presidency.

Update II: Oh.my.gosh.

Update III 3:15 PM: Greg’s got the video of the Hastert presser posted.

Update IV: Freeh won’t be involved in the investigaton afterall.

Larry Elder slams double standards on racism in Allen/Webb race

He’s been slamming the double standard among Democrats for years and he’s nailed it again this morning, asking “what-is-the-statute-of-limitations” on alleged racist or racially ‘insensitive’ comments:

Consider the allegations that Allen’s Democratic opponent, Jim Webb, also used the “N” word. According to former acquaintance Dan Cragg, while a freshman from 1963 to 1964 at University of Southern California, Webb used to drive through Watts, a predominantly black area of Los Angeles, pointing rifles and shouting the “N” word at blacks. Moreover, Webb, a published novelist, liberally uses the “N” word in his work. Examples: “They want stupid n*ggers, they’d all pay to see a dumb*ss n*gger.” — “Fields of Fire,” p. 302. “Don’t know why I crave watermelon the way I have over the past few weeks. Jimmy says I must have a n*gger in the woodpile.” — “A Country Such As This,” p. 34.

What about the man known as the “conscience of the Senate,” Senator Robert Byrd [D-WVA]? He belonged to the Klan during the 1940s, where he served as a “Kleagle” — a Klan recruiter. Back then, Byrd referred to American blacks as “race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

How about then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton? According to Clinton’s bodyguard, Arkansas State Trooper Larry Patterson, Clinton frequently used the “N” word, using it to describe Reverend Jesse Jackson, as well as a local black civil rights leader. Said Patterson, “When [Bill Clinton] had black political leaders in the state and he disagreed with them, he would frequently use the ‘N’ word.”

What about former First Lady and current Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton [D-NY]? She allegedly called Clinton’s congressional campaign adviser, who failed to secure her then-boyfriend’s 1974 election to Congress, a “f***ing Jew bastard.” Not only did Paul Fray — the target — go public, so did his wife, as well as campaign aide and businessman Neil McDonald.

What about more recent examples of “racial insensitivity”? The then-First Lady, in 1996, gave a speech on behalf of an organization called “EMILY’s List.” EMILY stands for Early Money Is Like Yeast. In her speech, Hillary mocked black then-mayor Willie Brown, who, according to Clinton, did not know this “person” called “Emily” and asked to be introduced to her. First Lady Clinton, according to the Los Angeles Times, used a “mock African-American accent” to imitate Brown, saying, “She’s supportin’ all these people. She’s supportin’ Senator Dianne Feinstein. She’s supported Senator Barbara Boxer. … She supported everybody. Why won’t she support me?”

What about the alleged racist strategy employed by now-Senator Chuck Schumer [D-NY]? In 1974, Jay Homnick, then 16 years old, says he attended a meeting in the Flatbush area of New York. Schumer, a newly minted Harvard grad running for State Assembly, was introduced to the audience consisting of local white, Italian, Jewish and Slavic immigrants. They wanted to rid three city blocks of Avenue K apartments whose tenants were almost 100 percent black. Schumer, according to Homnick, suggested a way to eradicate this infestation from the community.

Read it all.

And remember, I toldjah so ;)

More from the “tolerant left”

Scott Johnson at Powerline has the details on a disturbing incident last night that happened at an event hosted by the Columbia University College Republicans. Here’s a teaser: the event featured a speech by Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist.

What happened within a few minutes of Gilchrist taking the stage will surprise no one familiar with just how intolerant the so-called “tolerant left” really is.

PM Update: STILL more from the party of tolerance. Sigh.

Speaking of Scott Johnson, he’ll be the keynote speaker at this weekend’s Carolina FreedomNet 2006 conference in Greensboro, sponsored by the John Locke Foundation. I’ll be there, too, on one of the panels, and am looking fwd to meeting Lorie Byrd, MK Ham (Lorie will be on the panel I’m on, and MKH will be on the other panel) and so many others. Click here to see the schedule of events, who will be on the two panels, and to register for the conference. Hope to see you there!
