Donald Kaul

For many years a journalist at the Des Moines Register, he now is syndicated by OtherWords, a national, non-profit, editorial service. He established his liberal and satirical style during his time at the Register. (Source.)
Quote
"Here, then, is my 'madder-than-hell-and-I'm-not-going-to-take-it-anymore' program for ending gun violence in America. Repeal the Second Amendment, the part about guns anyway. [. . .] Owning a gun should be a privilege, not a right. Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. [. . .] Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that 'prying the guns from their cold, dead hands' thing works for me. Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control. And if that didn't work, I'd adopt radical measures."

In a column published in the Des Moines Register, December 29, 2012.

Comment: Says Tim Graham (FOXNews): "The so-called 'news' media love to blame conservatives for the declining civility of our democratic discourse, but the hateful venom spewed by supposedly enlightened liberals like Kaul is as vicious as it gets. Publishing death threats is bad enough, but doing so in the name of promoting a more peaceful, compassionate society is beyond sick. But this clown will probably never realize the absurdity of his argument.

Garrison Keillor

Author, storyteller, humorist, columnist, musician, satirist, and radio personality. He is probably best known as host of the Minnesota Public Radio show "A Prairie Home Companion."
Quote
"[O]ne starts to wonder if the country wouldn't be better off without them [Republicans] and if Republicans should be cut out of the health-care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer. Thirty-two percent of the population identifies with the GOP, and if we cut off health care to them, we could probably pay off the deficit in short order."

Comment: Just imagine the uproar if a Republican said that about Democrats. The paleo-media would go bonkers! How mean spirited! How hateful! How irresponsible! How reprehensible!

But when a loved leftist makes such a statement about those on the right, well heck, no big deal.

So, you know, those are the issues that I, you know, would expect -- I mean, I am a Democrat. That is, you know, I'm trying to become a Democratic Senator, so I don't, um, you know, there are issues along the way that I'm sure that, you know, people have differences of opinions on. . .

Comment: The Kennedy name is still pretty powerful. Anybody else hoping for a Senate seat and making comments such as these would be laughed out of town. But if your name is Kennedy, such ineptness, incompetence, and shallowness can be excused.

Comment: Oh yes, and the moon is made of green cheese and everyone dines on ice cream, cake, and lollipops. Mr. Kerry, do you really believe your utterances, or do you just say things to hear yourself speak? You seem far more impressed with your importance than the idea of saying something truthful. Remember when you said "[American troops in Vietnam] personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, [blew] up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam . . ." (Source.) But that was a lie, wasn't it? It was something to say to achieve a specific end. Is that the story of your entire life? (Clapper's comments.)


John Kerry


Quote
"I think they've said 'Death to America' in their chants, but . . . I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us."

Said July 28, 2015 in testimony at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the Iran nuclear deal.

Comment: Wow! I've thought for a long time that Mr. Kerry is incompetent, but I didn't realize he's so stupid! Let's see. I guess the constant chants and impassioned statements of "Death to America" are merely a little tease by the Iranians. And I suppose their incessant cries and chants of "Death to Israel" are likewise just uttered in fun. That's why they keep saying: "Just kidding." Except they never say "Just kidding. Besides being incompetent and stupid, Mr. Kerry is also very dangerous.

Comment: The referenced Watchdog article states: "In Kramer's fever swamp of a brain, Reagan caused AIDS. He [Reagan] reveled in its fatalities. Now HBO is honoring Kramer's unceasing hatred by making a TV movie out of [Kramer's] hate-filled 1985 play/jeremiad 'The Normal Heart.' The movie ends with a 'historic' note bashing Reagan some more. [. . .] Larry Kramer has been not only wrong, but factually unglued." Why is it, do you suppose, that so many on the left resort so often to lies?

"The bottom line is that most years in the U.S., ladders kill far more Americans than Muslim terrorists do. Same with bathtubs. Ditto for stairs. And lightning. Above all, fear spouses: husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists."

Comment: With similar logic you could have said in 2014: don't worry about that Ebola outbreak in Africa -- it's only infecting a handful of people there. No one in America has it, so don't worry about it. Or, in 1939 you could have said: don't worry about the Nazis -- they're only killing people in Europe. They haven't killed any Americans, so don't worry about it. And Mr. Kristoff's comments are considered worthy enough to appear in the New York Times? That tells you a lot about The New York Times.

Paul Krugman

Professor of Economics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University, Centenary Professor at the London School of Economics, Distinguished Scholar at the Luxembourg Income Study Center at the CUNY Graduate Center, and op-ed columnist for The New York Times,
Quote
"Dispite bitter opposition, despite having come close to self-inflicted disaster, Obama has emerged as one of the most consequential and, yes, successful presidents in American history. [. . .] I don't care about the fact that Obama hasn't lived up to the golden dreams of 2008, and I care even less about his approval rating. I do care that he has, when all is said and done, achieved a lot. That is, as Joe Biden didn't quite say, a big deal."

Comment: I have to agree Mr Obama has achieved a lot. But then, I'd say Benedict Arnold also achieved a lot. "One of the most successful presidents in American history?" You'd have to be incredibly biased, amazingly naive, and utterly devoid of critical thinking to believe that.

Comment: A March 11, 2011 article titled "Hans Kung Continues His Dissent," states: "Controversial Swiss-born Catholic theologian Hans [Kung] on Wednesday launched a new book attacking papal authority and calling on rank-and-file Catholics to seize control of the church from its clerical masters. The book Can the Church Still Be Saved? was set to go on sale in Germany Thursday, coinciding with the worldwide release of a book by Pope Benedict XVI titled Jesus of Nazareth -- Part II.

Comment: Talk about psychotic! Did you get that? As a species, we're doomed unless conservatism is wiped off the face of the earth. All the work of our Founders and President Reagan and all America-loving conservatives must be eradicated, or human beings will disappear forever. Now that's a level of partisan thinking that is truly frightening. It's absolutely breath-taking! If you're a conservative, Tony Kushner wants you . . . dead . . . to save the species.
