Shut Up and Ban! NBC's Newfound Protection of the Public
Drudge Posted Friday October 27, 2006 at 12:23 PM

Matt Drudge reports that NBC, in a sudden attack of conscience, has refused to run ads for "Shut Up And Sing," the rockumentary-turned-sociopolitical-exegesis that follows the Dixie Chicks before, during and after singer Natalie Maines' infamous anti-Bush statements at a London concert in 2003. According to reports, the network stated that it "cannot accept these spots as they are disparaging to President Bush." --you have to finish reading this article NOW--

O'Reilly's Big Lie on Letterman
by: Cenk Uygur

Bill O'Reilly at one point in his face off with David Letterman attempted to stump Letterman and prove Iraq had ties to terrorism by sighting Ansar al-Islam. According to O'Reilly, Ansar al-Islam was a terrorist group tied to al-Qaeda who was in Iraq before the war working with Saddam Hussein. Of course, it's a lie. --you have to finish reading this article NOW--

Ok, first thing's first...yes, O'Reilly is a dunce who makes stuff up.

But...

Iraq did, indeed, fund terrorism. In fact, the Iraqi government would send checks directly to the family of Palestinian suicide bombers. Here's Hitchens on Saddam's terrorism connections:

Of course, but if we wanted to invade every dictatorial country that has or wants to have WMD and supports terrorists in any way, it's a damn long list. Don't think we'll manage that with a volunteer army. And while I was not a fan of Bush I, he's taking an unfair beating for not marching into Baghdad. He understood that Iraq under Saddam kept Iran in balance. Matter of fact, that why we used to give Saddam money and weapons. Not saying it's right, but at least there was a logical strategy behind it.

anony, let's face it, the republicans having been funding terrorism and supplying weapons for decades.

it's all very sad and tragic. we need more intelligent voters who will stop selling us out!

Here's the thing, it's not just the Republicans (excuse me for posting anon. last time, I spazzed and accidentally forgot to log in). In fact it was Carter who started the funding of terrorism in the Middle East when his adminnistration sent secret funds to the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan. And thankfully that didn't come back to bite us in the ass.

Uhhh....

We always dance with fire no matter who the President or political party in power is (Kennedy approving the Bay of Pigs, who were nothing but Cuban terrorists trained by the US).

Adam Shprintzen said...

Ack, I mis-spoke...I meant to say that Carter started the funding of Islamic fundamentalists, not in the Middle East since...well Afghanistan isn't in the Middle East.

Oy.

I need coffee.

I've read that, adam. years ago actually.

I know it's true that the democrats are also guilty of many of the world's ills just like the republicans. but, as a rule, the democrats are the lesser of the two evils.

sadly, that's also how I vote. I wish it were different. I do hope that it does change. but, until then, I'd like to try to keep as many of my civil rights intact as possible and affiliate with a group that has some semblance of social responsibility.

Adam Shprintzen said...

Oh I definitely agree. Is just sad, as you said, that it's a matter of choosing between bad and worse.

Sigh.
