CONTACT INFO: Dump NewsCorp & Stock Now: Stop The Right-Wing Conspiracy To Destroy America
America is under assault by foreign and domestic terrorists. Australian crypto-Nazi political saboteur Rupert Murdoch and Al Qaida economic sleeper agent-wannabee Rush Limbaugh are attacking our political and economic systems, and they mean harm to every man, woman and child in the United States. Politicians fear them, because they control the media, the Republican Party and the "Conservative Movement" in this country. The only thing that can stop them is a concerted national effort by the American people.
We have only just freed ourselves from eight years of illegitimate rule, right-wing thievery and senseless slaughter of innocents. The closet Nazi's were caught by surprise by the overwhelming support for a progressive agenda last November. They are regrouping now around the worst enemies of peace and prosperity, justice and harmony, freedom and equal rights for all. They oppose everything America stands for. It's up to us to fight them.
Do not buy any of the products listed in the links provided below. Email these sponsors and tell them to stop supporting the anti-American conservative agenda. Call or write your investment advisers and fund managers and demand that they dump all stock in ClearChannel and NewsCorp. That's all you have to do. Please take five or ten minutes to do it today. Thanks.

"Comment: Real Life and the New York Post's Cartoon Violence"
It can happen here. It DOES happen here.
' Cartoon violence and the real world
On New Years Eve, in the affluent Houston suburb of Bellaire, Robbie Tolan, the son of former Major League baseball player Bobby Tolan, and his cousin were stopped by police as they drove into the driveway of Bobby Tolan's home. According to media accounts, the police failed to identify themselves and began to arrest the two, forcing them onto the ground.
When Bobby Tolan and his wife, in pajamas, walked out of their home and tried to tell the police officer that the two were his son and nephew and that the car was his, he was pushed against a door and his wife thrown against a garage door. After his son, lying on the ground, turned around and cursed the policeman for pushing his mother against the garage, the police officer shot him in the chest. The horrific events continued as Bobby Tolan, his wife and his nephew were packed into police cars.
It seems that the police had run the license plate of the car incorrectly and concluded that it was a stolen car. Even with the mistake, the police failed to follow even elemental police procedure.
Tolan later told the media that as he sat in the police car, he could hear the dispatcher say the car was in fact not stolen. Tolan and his family were kept the cars, however, as a large number of police gathered around trying to figure out what to do. Eventually, he, his wife and his nephew were released and were able to get to the hospital to see Robbie, whose life was literally at stake. With the help of a supportive hospital staff, the police were kept away from Robbie. Though he survived, Tolan still has a bullet in his liver.
In a radio interview with sports journalist Mike Francesa, the senior Tolan discussed the events and stated that all his family has asked for is an apology from the local government and the police. So far they have received nothing, except silence or statements that the investigation is ongoing.
As I see it, the New York Post cartoon and the shooting of Robbie Tolan (or the police slaying of Oscar Grant in Oakland last month) are not disconnected events. The “cultural values” in the New York Post cartoon were in effect acted out by real live cops as part of a pattern of ideological and institutional racism.
If a president who won a decisive electoral victory and happens to be an African American can be so portrayed, why not the son of a distinguished major league baseball player? During their interview, Francesa asked Tolan if he thought it would have helped if he had told the police about his baseball background. Tolan said he wouldn't do that, but in a community where African Americans constitute one percent of the population and an estimated 44 percent of police stops, the racial profiling that the local police are denying seems to be a way of life.
So there are bigger issues here. It is not just about one Rupert Murdoch tabloid that hipsters in New York usually laugh at. It isn't just about one more rich white Southern suburb whose police hunt down Blacks the way soldiers search for potential invaders across a militarized border. It is about the anxieties and anger of those social forces that were decisively defeated in the last election. They sold racism along with other prejudices and sheer ignorance to advance their political agenda for so long and now have become more rabid than ever before.
For them, President Obama is to be ignored at best, race baited at worst, as a way to affirm the “morning in America” culture that Ronald Reagan portrayed in the 1980s, a back-to-the-future America populated by happy suburban white people watching African American athletes and entertainers perform for them in a society where they believe there is no such thing as a "race problem."
Civil rights groups are calling for a boycott of the Post. I think they should go further and call for a boycott of businesses and groups whose ads appear in the Post. A federal investigation of the Tolan shooting and the Oscar Grant murder are also in order.
Racism, in all of its forms, ideological and institutional, is still on the playing field. It feeds off inequality, offering scapegoats as a substitute for policies to face the present economic crisis. It must be literally knocked down with reasoned condemnation and firm action every time it raises its head. The actions represented by both the Post cartoon and the shootings of Robbie Tolan and Oscar Grant shouldn’t be buried or forgotten, or considered minor or “unimportant.” To take that view only legitimizes racism and strengthens those who use it and profit from it.

"Time to Boycott Rush Limbaugh?"
' "I hope he fails", four words that have defined a party. These are the four words that were spoken by Rush Limbaugh and supported by the Republican Party. What does it mean for the president to fail. Simple, if the president fails, we as a nation will suffer the consequences. Mr. Limbaugh is profiting from this controversy. His ratings are up as he spreads a negative agenda determined to undermine the US government. Sounds dramatic? Think about what Mr. Limbaugh has to gain from taking this position..
The answer is very simple. If you agree with Mr. Limbaugh and you support "I hope he fails" then support the sponsors on Mr. Limbaugh's program. If you disagree with Mr. Limbaugh's position and support the president, then boycott Mr. Limbaugh's program and his sponsors. Send a message, vote with your wallet. '
