‘Call the language police!’ ICE press release uses horrible slur

, , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/MarkSKrikorian/status/493919784359043073 Geraldo calls the term “illegal alien” a cheap shot. Sally Kohn says it is a slur. So does this guy. The term is verboten at many newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, which prefers to say “immigrants who either entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas.” ICE, by contrast, refers to illegal aliens as, well, “illegal aliens.” http://twitter.com/#!/MarkSKrikorian/status/493919950671986688 A sampling: Appalling!

CNN’s Don Lemon asks if Islam may be ‘more violent’ than other faiths

, , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/WaynesterAtl/status/508039282494566401 We thought we had settled this back in 2010, when PBS’ Tavis Smiley revealed to Ayaan Hirsi Ali that Christians commit terrorist acts “every single day in this country.” Maybe Christians aren’t the most violent of religions, though. Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon asked his panel, “Is Islam a more violent religion than other faiths?” As the Daily […]

OFA claims Obamacare means ‘no more big, unjustified rate hikes’

http://twitter.com/#!/obamacare/status/414846960621735936 For millions of Americans, Obamacare means cancellation letters, higher premiums, and higher deductibles.. Apparently, the guy or gal who runs Organizing for Action’s @Obamacare account is the only person on the planet who doesn’t know that. http://twitter.com/#!/bradcundiff/status/414847514903588865 http://twitter.com/#!/dianaCLM/status/414869020496498688 Read more: http://twitchy.com/2013/12/22/ofa-claims-obamacare-means-no-more-big-unjustified-rate-hikes/

http://twitter.com/#!/larsoneric50/status/423188989596540930 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie alluded to the Bridgegate scandal in the first sentences of his State of the State speech Tuesday afternoon, saying, “The last week has certainly tested this administration.

Vox throws ‘hanging curveball’ about IRS funding; Iowahawk goes yard

, , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/GWMorris/status/479366185147191296 The IRS has admitted to targeting conservative organizations, and more recently claimed to have “lost” over two years worth of Lois Lerner’s email. For the Voxsplainers at Vox.com, that kind of evidence of possible corruption is proof that the IRS … needs more funding: http://twitter.com/#!/voxdotcom/status/479295067639668736 Seriously? http://twitter.com/#!/JohnEkdahl/status/479317049605242880 It is beyond parody, and yet Iowahawk […]

‘Mission accomplished’? ‘Fixed’ HealthCare.gov still full of fail [pics]

, , , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/MomMilkshake/status/407334771459497984 Wait, what? That can’t be! HHS told us that the revamp of HealthCare.gov has resulted in “dramatic improvement.” Mission accomplished and all! Period. Not according to attempted users of the website, however. The “fixed” HealthCare.gov site is still full of fail. http://twitter.com/#!/JessicaClackum/status/407326954107314176 http://twitter.com/#!/joelpollak/status/407276146917527553 http://twitter.com/#!/nicktesla2010/status/407333260125937664 http://twitter.com/#!/vaughn_shirley/status/407233608894517248 http://twitter.com/#!/Charlottesville/status/407302272909967360 http://twitter.com/#!/adamtw1010/status/407295042185736192 http://twitter.com/#!/seanshannon/status/407308370337488896 http://twitter.com/#!/charliespiering/status/407190297894854656 It’s not any better on […]

Don’t look now Vox; Your epic stupidity sparked mock-tastic hashtag [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/Will_Antonin/status/516593692480925696 Heh. As Twitchy readers know, Vox upped its already high level of stupidity when it claimed protesters in Hong Kong were showing solidarity with Ferguson. How? By putting their hands up. No, really. That happened. The mockery was swift and sure, but it got even better when this photo-filled hashtag entered the mix. Have […]
