Could you imagine the screaming heads at the Fox Noise network if Breitbart were a progressive? I could imagine Glenn Beck, hysterical, calling for Breitbart's arrest on aiding and abetting terrorism --- or maybe even for the government to take him out.

There will be naysayers who will say nay that this looks edited, even highly edited.
But I don't think anyone can argue with the fact that Breitbart's words stand on their own and are just plain damning. I'll let the tape speak for itself.
And I'm not damning Breibart. It's never been about Breitbart. I can say it a million times: it's not about Breitbart.(I just walked around the house 23 times saying it's not about Breitbart, it's not about Breibart. Pretty sure I said it about a million times)
It's about the right wing loving terrorists.
They say that Obama Socialists love terrorists and I just want to prove the Neochondroitin hypocrisy that's been evident for at least the last 350 years. Ever since the founding of this great country by our atheistic, Communist loving Founding Fathers, who truly, truly knew how to have a good time with decency and justice for all.
Never meant for him to be ridiculed. How many times do I have to say it?
Are you people on something?
(from Breitbart's Rules of Journalism: abridged edition)
And you, you Brad FriedFoods you, I bet you won't even have the guts to post this.
Well, you can't censor me anymore, I quit. This, my first post, is my last post. And I'll never come back here again. Ever. Not now. Not never. Nor ever. Again. Not me. Sure, I may come back to cuz I you liars, from time to time. But other than that, I'm never coming back.

Your remark, David Lasagna, about the right wing loving terrorists, however tongue in cheek, called to mind what one of my political science professors said to me in college --- so long ago, I'm reluctant to say when.
He said, "If the Soviet Union did not exist, our government would have to invent one. The military-industrial complex thrives on the existence of a credible threat."
When the Berlin Wall fell, people actually spoke of a "peace dividend." But first Reagan and then the Bush I made sure that we didn't opt for what they saw as a real threat to America as we have come to know it--peace!
Then came 9/11 --- the billionaire funded hard right's wet dream. Terrorism makes the perfect foil. As Gen. William Odom noted, terrorism is not a target. It's a tactic. A war on terrorism makes no more sense than a war on night attacks.
But terrorism makes the perfect target precisely because it can't be defeated. It's an amorphous, phantom menace who can be anywhere and everywhere at all times. Unlike that awful Soviet Union who slapped the military-industrial complex in the face by fading into oblivion, no matter how may "terrorists" we kill, there will always be a new generation of terrorist to fear --- and fear drives military spending.
So, yeah, I can understand why the likes of Andrew Breitbart heart al Qaeda, though I suspect that in the Breitbart tradition, this videotape was probably edited.

GOP hearts the guys who heart terrorists:
The following appeared at p. AA2 of the July 27 Los Angeles Times
Blogger invited to GOP event
The Republican National Committee has invited conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart to participate in a private GOP fundraiser in Beverly Hills with party Chairman Michael Steele next month.
Breitbart was behind an edited video clip of a former Department of Agriculture official that suggested Shirley Sherrod, who is black, denied a white farmer aid. The speech, when viewed in full, shows the opposite.
The only problem I have is the Times' description of Breitbart as a "conservative." Would they have also called the man after whom Breitbart patterned his deceptive propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, a "conservative"?

And I'm not damning Breibart. It's never been about Breitbart. I can say it a million times: it's not about Breitbart.
The more i thought about it the more i agree. Moveon with this video is comparing apples to oranges. Breitbart got congress to defund ACORN and the administration to fire Sherrod. Moveon should have done a vid that would have forced the right wing to theoretically distance themselves from chosen offender. Thinking of who/how kinda made my mind race.
But, seeing as they have no heart or shame, and they eat their own, its unlikely to get the intended effect. Besides, when they get 'offended', they piss and moan like little bitches and the MSM will back them up. That damn librul media!

Ernest, your teacher said:
"If the Soviet Union did not exist, our government would have to invent one. The military-industrial complex thrives on the existence of a credible threat."
What did you learn?
Because you then say this:
"Then came 9/11 --- the billionaire funded hard right's wet dream. Terrorism makes the perfect foil"
Surely you aren't fooled by the hard-rights story of 9/11, which it seems you believe.
Please clear this up for myself and other readers.
Do you know about WTC 7? To be clear this is a litmus test.

Brian, what part of "Terrorism makes the perfect foil" for the military-industrial complex is untrue? Are you disputing Ernie's assertion that 9/11 was used to advance profits for the military-industrial complex, as Eisenhower warned would happen?

I am making sure he knows who the terrorists on 9/11 were.
He used his words as if terrorism happened and "it was the perfect excuse."
As opposed to:
9/11 was a false flag and should be considered state sponsered terroism, or a State Crime Against Democracy.
9/11 was far from an excuse, it was the created entity that Ernest's teacher warned him about.

Brian is 100% correct. Hopefully Ernest simply hasn't taken the time to look into the details of the contrived 9/11 false flag attack rather than considering the truth for a moment before deciding that anything other than the official mythology is too psychologically painful and scary to countenance like I have personally seen MANY otherwise-mature Americans do and choosing to pretend to believe an impossible myth rather than the scary reality.
As bizarre as it may seem I've seen adults upon encountering this painful truth literally cover their ears and go "la la la la I can't hear you" as if they're 5 years old. Or start yelling "I don't wanna talk about it! I don't wanna talk about it!" and ending the conversation as if sticking their head in the sand makes the problem go away. I will give Ernest the benefit of the doubt and presume that he just hasn't looked into it yet.

Brian, I just posted a lengthy comment in a newer thread located here
which is awaiting moderation presumably because of its length and multiple html links. Once it is approved as I am thinking it likely will be then you should check it out and let me know what you think. In it I outline the true reasons behind the phony "War on Terror" using bits of information gleaned from mostly mainstream news sources which when put together is quite damning.

Ah, nevermind Brian. Most all of the important parts of that comment have already been redacted with only a tiny and insignificant bit of it actually allowed to be posted. Nevermind about the most important issue of our time, I just can't wait to read another few threads about Andrew Breitbart or ACORN or the rigging of elections that even if they were 100% above board would still amount to nothing more than a dog & pony show because all the choices you have to choose between are controlled by the elite and will continue to be until private money is removed completely from American politics. Yay, tilting at windmills is fun!
