Liberal Rep. Weiner Shows Proves What A Weiner He Truly Is – LITERALLY!

June 1, 2011

It has to be ironic that the two Democrats whose names are euphemisms for the male reproductive organ are now BOTH demonstrated perverts (and of course Barney Frank, the homosexual who just got caught advancing one of his gay lovers for a position at the bankrupt Fannie Mae that caused our economy to implode in 2008, is the other).

Republican Rep. Chris Lee was caught sending a picture of himself shirtless to a woman.  That was so bad that he resigned.  A Democrat won his seat because people were disgusted by the behavior.  But that was a “G” rated picture compared to Weiner’s weiner.

It’s Weiner’s turn to say bye bye because of “Weinergate.”

Here’s the story:

Too many coincidences in Weiner’s tale

In the New York of the late 1800s, Boss Tweed famously complained about Thomas Nast cartoons: Though many immigrants in the city couldn’t read, even the illiterate could understand “those damn pictures.” Rep. Anthony Weiner and his staff now face a similar problem.

By now, you’ve heard about the Tweet picture sent from Weiner’s account to a young lady named Gennette Nicole Cordova. The congressman has insisted his accounts were “hacked.” Cordova, in a statement released late Sunday night (36 hours after the tweet in question), says, “The account that these tweets were sent from was familiar to me. This person had harassed me many times after the congressman followed me on Twitter.” She also said that her previous tweet, “I wonder what my boyfriend @repweiner is up to,” was a joke.

Such statements notwithstanding, those on the left trying to paint this as a conspiracy must deal with an array of odd elements that an increasingly tech-savvy public may find suspicious:

* Not just the offending picture but most of the congressman’s pictures were removed from the site.

* Not only did the young lady’s Facebook and Twitter accounts disappear from the ’Net (she’s apparently since started a new Twitter account, and may go back on Facebook), but also her bylines on articles in her college paper.

* The congressman made it a point to tweet what time an East Coast interview would be shown in Seattle, where the young lady’s from.

* Cordova reportedly wrote in the college paper in March about Twitter’s verifiable accounts giving access to celebrities.

Coincidences all, but there’s one more that millions of Twitter users will understand best:

On Twitter, famous people tend to have tens of thousands to millions of followers — but they themselves follow only a fraction of that amount.

Rep. Weiner is a man of national prominence, a rising star in the Democratic Party, frequently on TV, a past and likely future candidate for mayor. He knows and is known by thousands of movers, shakers, members of the press and politicians on the city, state and national levels.

Yet, as of yesterday, he was following fewer than 200 others — and, with all those famous folks to choose from, one of the few he followed was Cordova, a 21-year-old college student who lives nearly 3,000 miles away in Bellingham,Wash.

Run that though your head for a second and at the same time remember two important facts about Twitter:

1. If two people follow each other on Twitter, they can send private messages unseen by others.

2. The difference between a direct message, seen by only the recipient, and a public tweet, seen by the world, is a single character.

The biggest problem for Weiner and his defenders on the left is not bloggers from the right. It’s the details of “#weinergate” can be understood by millions of ordinary people in 140 characters or less.

Peter Ingemi blogs at datechguyblog.com. He is the host of Da- TechGuy on DaRadio Saturdays 10 a.m. on WCRN-AM 830 in Worcester, Mass.

Here’s Weiner’s utterly bizarre press conference (it’s 7:30 long, but if you think this guy is actually innocent, maybe you could explain how in a way he refuses to do):

He stuck rigidly to his “If I were giving a speech to 45,000 people” non-analogous “analogy” with CNN. But apparently felt the need to add that a Clinton News Network producer is a “jackass” for actually expecting Weiner to answer an actual question about what he has claimed and what he has tacitly admitted.

Weiner – who refused to state that the picture in question was not actually of him – is calling it a “prank,” which is very different from calling it a “crime” as he immediately did when the story first came out on Big Journalism. And he is now refusing to talk about it any more than his answers to questions he’s done nothing but dodge.

Weiner claimed at first his account had been hacked – which is a federal crime (particularly given the fact that he is a congressman) involving real jail time which would obviously need to be handled by the Capitol Police and/or the FBI. But in spite of the fact that he said afederal crime had been committed against him, he refused to file a criminal report. Instead he called his lawyer - who of course essentially said “Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!  We’ll investigate this ourselves and tell you exactly what happened.”  And now Weiner – who wanted a federal investigation of Glenn Beck for pitching gold (which has massively increased in value since Beck pitched it, for the record) – suddenly doesn’t want an investigation of what he initially represented as a crime.  He doesn’t think it rises – pun apparently not intended – to the level of national federal resources.

The theory that best fits the facts is that Weiner most certainly DID intend to send this picture, but did not intend to send it to all 45,000 of his fool followers.  We’re finding out that Weiner had a penchant for tweeting young women - such as porn actress Ginger Lee, with whom Weiner exchanged private tweets.  What do you think are the odds that Weiner forgot to change a setting and sent something public what he wanted to send private?

I’ll have to say this: there’s a major difference between liberal women and conservative women.  Liberal women have a depraved tendency (which is probably simply part of the fact that liberals are depraved in general) of being willing to sexually service their idols.  I think of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.  Even the New York Times acknowledged that the guy “smelled as if he hadn’t bathed in days.”  But that didn’t stop liberal women from servicing their socialist star.  I think of “journalist” Nina Burleigh who famously said she would gladly give Bill Clinton oral sex to thank him for keeping abortion legal.  [That's just one of the reasons that fascists are leftists; liberals are only too willing to go to depraved lengths for their messiahs].  And so we shouldn’t be one bit surprised that Weiner is out advertising his weiner to his fans.

It’s time to retire so you can spend more time with your Tweets, Weiner.

Disturbing Modern Trend Portends Something From The Bible

November 18, 2010

This was amazing.  And it’s happening more and more these days:

If the Science Guy passes out and nobody tweets it, did it happen?
By Brett Michael Dykes

Last night in front of an audience of hundreds at a presentation at the University of Southern California, TV personality Bill Nye — popularly known as the “Science Guy” — collapsed midsentence as he walked toward a podium. Early indications are that Nye is OK, but what’s odd about the incident isn’t so much Nye’s  slight health setback as the crowd’s reaction. Or, more precisely, its nonreaction, according to several accounts.

It appears that the students in attendance, rather than getting up from their seats to rush to Nye’s aid, instead pulled out their mobile devices to post information about Nye’s loss of consciousness.

Alastair Fairbanks, a USC senior in attendance for Nye’s presentation, told the Los Angeles Times that “nobody went to his aid at the very beginning when he first collapsed — that just perplexed me beyond reason.” The student added, “Instead, I saw students texting and updating their Twitter statuses. It was just all a very bizarre evening.”

[Rewind: Joe Biden's quick response to onstage fainting]

Indeed, a cursory search on Twitter revealed a virtual play-by-play account of the incident. One student wrote, “Bill Nye tripped on his computer cord while speaking at USC, was out for abt 5 secs, got back up, spoke w/ slurred speech and fainted.”

According to the school’s student news outlet, the Daily Trojan, Nye asked, “What happened? How long was I out?” when he regained consciousness. Briskly picking up his humorous persona, he added, “Wow, that was crazy. I feel like Lady Gaga or something.” Nye’s publicity team didn’t immediately respond to The Lookout’s request for comment on the episode.

Still, in the annals of the digital public’s civic indifference, the Nye incident is nowhere near as disturbing as another episode reported in New Orleans earlier this week, which oddly enough also involved a humorist. Anthony Barre, a New Orleans man popular for his acid-tongued comic performances on YouTube using the handle “Messy Mya,” was murdered on the streets of the city’s 7th Ward — the historically Creole neighborhood chronicled in the HBO series “Treme.” As he lay dying, witnesses at the scene took to the Internet to chronicle the tragedy in real time, even posting photos of his body lying in a pool of blood.

Here’s how the Times-Picayune’s Brendan McCarthy described the incident:

Moments after gunshots roared through the 7th Ward on Sunday night, a lone snapshot appeared on the Internet.

In it, a 22-year-old man is lying cheek to the ground, crimson pooling around his neck. His eyes are closed, his torso curled.

Chaos explodes around him, with the arms of others pressed to the back of his head. And someone is holding a cell phone just inches from his face.

This is how the world learned of Messy Mya’s death.

Prior to this week’s episodes, perhaps the best-known incident of youthful digital passivity in the face of danger was the September 2007 tasing of University of Florida student Andrew Meyer at a speech delivered by Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry. That episode immortalized the expression “Don’t tase me, bro!” The crowd of onlookers trying to capture the encounter on their cellphone cameras later prompted Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert to imagine the internal monologue of a bored-looking kid seated next to Meyer thusly: “He’s thinking, ‘I wish they’d stop tasing this guy, so I can get home and watch him being tased on YouTube.’ “

There’s a line of dialogue I remember from a movie called “Wild Bill” as the two characters entered a sleazy town:

Charley Price: This town reminds me of something from the Bible.
James Butler ‘Wild Bill’ Hickok: Which part?
Charley Price: The part right before god gets angry.

And here’s a “part” of the Bible this incident reminds me of:

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.  For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these” (Saint Paul, in 2 Timothy 3:1-5).

And dang, doesn’t texting and tweeting and video cameras ever bring to life the “malicious gossips” section of this prophetic passage?

I can’t even imagine a man collapsing in front of me and not rushing over to try to help him.  So imagine how unimaginable it must be for me to imagine a huge crowd of people texting and twittering while a man falls down and lies unconscious on a stage.

A week ago I had a VA (Veterans Administration) appointment.  A man in a wheelchair was trying to get through a door that shut on him.  Ten of us immediately got up from our seats to help him.

But that was a far, FAR better generation than “the last days” group we’ve got now.  It makes me nauseous to think about these effete, sanctimonious, sycophantic, self-righteous snobs.

These are the punks who voted for Obama in such huge numbers in 2008.  They’re the ones who lecture us about the environment and taxes and gay marriage and abortion and illegal immigration and ObamaCare and big government and all the other politically correct crap.

Al Gore recently was caught on tape talking to such an audience of texters and tweeters:

On the tape, Gore states: “When I was your age and the civil rights revolution was unfolding, and we kids asked our parents and their generation, ‘Explain to me again why it’s okay for the law to officially discriminate against people because of their skin color?’

“And when our parents’ generation couldn’t answer that question, that’s when the law started to change. There are some things about our world that you know that older people don’t know,” he continued.

“Why would that be? Well in a period of rapid change, the old assumptions sometimes just don’t work anymore because they’re out of date,” Gore said.

For the record, Al Gore didn’t invent treating black people like human beings any more than he invented the internet.  There were people who fought a bitter Civil War nearly 150 years ago to bring that about.  They were called “Republicans.”  And the people they fought were called “Democrats.”

And the only reason “the old assumptions” are “out of date” these days is because demonic rat bastard moralizing panderers like Al Gore have become the teachers of this terminal generation.  And the same people who constantly congratulate themselves on just how wonderful they are don’t even deserve to be called “pathetic.”
