As you may know, we've exposed the far-left Daily Kos web site as being a hate enterprise and have questioned why the Democratic presidential candidates are speaking at its convention, thereby putting a stamp of approval on hate.
JetBlue figured it out quick after we questioned their sponsorship of the convention and they pulled their name out of it but the pols still intend to show up. Predictably there's been some blow back from the far left. Elements at NBC News and Stephen Colbert had pro-Kos comments. No surprise and the usual Kool-Aid columnists are all in a twitter.
Then there was this from Ann Barzler who lives in Marshall, Michigan. "Bill, I was disgusted and offended that you would show that vile pseudo-photo of President Bush with an animal. You've lost a viewer." Well, I'm sorry about that madam, but sometimes I have to show awful stuff like that Kos picture to get things done. By the way, an even worse picture displayed on the Kos Web site will be shown here on Monday evening.
Now at this point, it should be obvious to every American the far left is out of control and doing damage to the nation. If I have to shock you to get that across, I will. And on Monday you'll be shocked.
Now remember, the next president of the United States may be speaking before a group that allows and encourages the lowest form of discourse, threats, defamation, rank hatred. Never before in our country's history has this happened and the reason it is happening is because much of the media sympathizes with the far left and legitimizes its extreme hatred.
"Talking Points" would like to repeat, if a very public presidential candidate spoke before a far right hate group, that candidate would be fried by the media. But not a negative word about the Kos situation from the press. Figure it out.
Finally, if you go RealClearPolitics.com, you can read a very perceptive article by Reid Wilson about the situation and why Hillary Clinton is showing up at the Kos convention despite the incredible hate on that Web site directed at her.
In a nutshell, Mr. Wilson says that Senator Clinton and other Democrats fear the Web site. But we don't. And we don't hate them either. We just believe they're bad for the country and have proven our case beyond a reasonable doubt. Come Monday, the final nail, but it is disturbing so be forewarned. And that's “the memo.”
Most Ridiculous Item
Time now for "The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day." It's art and don't you forget it. In Boston's Franklin Park Zoo, a couple of gorillas are painting, and they're creating a vision of art that reflects their innermost being — or something.
Anyway, one of the gorillas has sold a painting for $10,000. There it is. No word on what the primate is going to do with the money, but rumor has it he's looking at a Cape Cod rental for the month of August.
Ridiculous? Painting gorillas, ridiculous? No.
Our "No Bloviating" T-shirts are flying on out of here, the "No Blows." So get them while we have them. We're not going to have them for long. This is the third go-around. They're all sold out. And these are flying out of here. Get them on BillOReilly.com.
