More Breitbart.

By Jeff Simpson

 As we have reported before, Andy Breitbart left us a legacy, unfortunately it was a disgusting one! The problem now though, is people are using his disgusting legacy to try and trump it and get the same levl of notoriety.  They continue to massively fail.  

This time might be THE worst yet: writer Matt Boyle reported on the specific location where President Obama's teenage daughters are vacationing for spring break, ignoring the decades-old journalistic tradition that media outlets should not report on a president's minor children when they are not attending "official or semi-official events" for privacy and security reasons.
Yes Matt Boyle, decided that teenage daughters of the President were fair game, security be dammed!

As if that wasn't enough,  Iowa Republican Steve King also decided the young girls were fair game,  who cares if their security and lives were threatened, King had political points to make!

CALLER: When I see the First Lady and the beautiful girls going off to the Bahamas waving goodbye to us, it’s really hard to stomach. When we’re tightening our belts, either all of us should do it or none of us should do it. This, I am pretty tolerant, I always have been, I usually shut my mouth. This is not acceptable.
KING: Carla, you’re on point and on the mark all the way through. […] You’re right on the president. He needs to show some austerity himself. Instead he wanted to tell America how bad it was going to be. […] We’ve got the president doing these things. He sent the daughters to spring break in Mexico a year ago. That was at our expense, too. And now to the Bahamas at one of the most expensive places there. That is the wrong image to be coming out of the White House.

Apparently king felt that attacking the young African American girls was his best chance to score points for his upcoming Senate run.   I hope Iowa sends him a message that this kind of behavior is unacceptable!

The hate on the right towards the President and his family is really a black mark on our society

  1. Andrew Breitbart, who died from terminal hatred, is burning in Hell watching as President Obama is enjoying his 2nd term. Breitbart set the standard for lies and hatred to be perfectly acceptable practices by right wing media.

    We see how hatred and lies fire up the Tea Baggers, gun nuts and other psycopaths and sociopaths who make up today's Republican Party.

    But in the process of spreading hatred and lies, right wingers have made the Republican brand TOXIC.

    Bigotry, selfishness, megalomania, plutomania and submission without critical thinking have become hard-wired into the Republican brain. The result is they have lost the majority of voters. Their policies are delusional, such as claiming the way to balance the budget is to cut tax revenues. When spending is cut, they whine how it affects them. Nothing like a Republican who owns a private aircraft protesting proposed landing fees and moaning about closed air traffic towers because spending was cut.

    These are the fruits of Andrew Breitbart. Let us celebrate his legacy that dooms the Republican Party into irrelevancy.
