Cenk Uygur Is A Tool, And Andrew Breitbart Is A Hero

I still haven’t worked with the video from CPAC of Breitbart and Citizens United, but that video promises to more or less explode. The feisty Breitbart works on Cenk here, who seems to throw out the famous ObamaCare spitting incident merely to poke Andrew. I couldn’t make it more that a third of the way through this; Uygur is too irritating:

Via Hot Air

Via Instapundit, Walter Russell Mead really misses the point:

That is how lame Occupy is. This so-called “movement” doesn’t even have the clout and enthusiasm to match one wing of the Tea Party—the weak wing.

The point isn’t to be a proper movement in the slightest. I’m still unsure about Ladd Ehlinger’s point that #Occupy is intended to tilt the election. My opinion is that the intent of #Occupy is to have a chilling effect on the Tea Parties; to get thugs in place with a threat of violence that will diminish the size and scope of pro-liberty demonstrations this year. To suck the oxygen out of public demonstrations entirely, as legitimate ones will hurt Obama’s popularity.

The Left can’t create anything, but it can destroy to control, as they are attempting to do with the right of assembly. Barack Obama, who is orchestrating the affair, (with sufficient layers of indirection to remain legitimate, of course) is failing utterly to uphold the Constitution here. This Administration, like Scottish cooking, seems built on a dare. The latter, culinary, the former, political.

    OWS is part of Obama’s anti Romney strategy. He has been prepping the battle space with hatred for “the rich”

    It ain’t for nothing I call Obama the #Occupant of the United States.

    I’ve been keeping a running chronicle of this (bowel) movement and Cenk/Mark Moulitsas = biggest promoters of it.

    Yes! Pretty good. Too bad Santorum’s record is BigGov as well.

    Nah. He’s just sick of the insane left (redundant, I know) and its attacks on anything that is even the slightest to teh right of (e.g. the world).

    I liked how ended a clip that was posted over at Neptunus Lex, when speaking to the insane left’s mdeia machine (all of the traditional media) – “F#!k You!

    You have to support a man that eloquent.

     If it weren’t for Breitbart no one would have ever learned about the Pigford Settlement, for just one thing. Yet you call him insane? I say if more reporters and pundits were like him as opposed to more like your basic Pravda/Isvestia apparatchik this country wouldn’t be in the state of leftist indoctrination it’s in now, and idiots like you might actually know what the fuck you’re talking about.

    I love the tactic by Uygur to say, essentially, “Let’s go through this point by point” while intentionally proceeding to gloss over as much as possible while hurrying through a list of grievances. It’s a deceptive method to appear to want to address an argument thoroughly when it does nothing of the sort – by design. Multiple assertions are made wherein the respondent cannot address the entire list. That which is not refuted, which is pretty much every assertion but one, maybe two, is considered fact by default because it wasn’t addressed. The respondent can only address that which is most egregious in his own mind or maybe the first or last “fact” in a barrage of “facts.”

    You’ll note how well Breitbart called Uygur out on this by interjecting quickly on the “spitting incident” that never happened while trying to stop the barrage. I’ve rarely seen conservatives proactively go after their interviewer, but Breitbart knows the game well. In this regard, he’s a gem and ought to hold seminars on media relations and the detection of propaganda.

    “is failing utterly to uphold the Constitution here. ”

    Smitty, he isn’t failing to uphold, he’s succeeding to eliminate.

    I thought you saw this.

    And did you even listen to what Breitbart said?   

    (yeah, that question is more rhetoric than anything)
