After Getting Slammed for Racist Xenophobic Video Game Image, Tea Party Group Removes It and Blames “Liberal Trolls”

Here is a lesson for all the tea party pages out there on Facebook. When expressing your political opinions on social media, you MIGHT want to refrain from posting these types of images:

liberty

Yes, that is exactly what The National Liberty Foundation shared on its Facebook page over the weekend. Yes the very same West Palm Beach tea party group whose mission is as follows: “The National Liberty Federation (NLF) at LibertyFederation.com is dedicated to promoting awareness regarding our inalienable rights. Through educational endeavors, public forums and other mass communications, we seek to ensure our citizenry, members of the media, punditry, and government, remain focused on the importance of free enterprise, limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual liberty, and American heritage, as a means for perpetuating a free society.”

Looks like people are watching and this time it was MSNBC that found out about the image, and as you can imagine, the outlet wrote about it:

The National Liberty Federation, formerly known as the South Florida Tea Party, changed its name last January as part of a rebranding effort in the aftermath of President Obama’s reelection. The group’s founder, Everett Dickinson, told the Palm Beach Post that the group “wanted to differentiate ourselves from certain organizations that have the name ‘tea party’ and we can’t control.”

The group helped Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio burnish his credentials among tea party activists in advance of his successful 2010 Senate bid.

The video game, Bioshock Infinite, takes place largely in a floating city called Columbia and depicts a racist, xenophobic society where people worship the American founding fathers as religious figures. The image posted to the National Liberty Federation’s Facebook page is of an in-game mural that depicts George Washington bathed in angelic light as he holds the Liberty Bell in one hand and the Ten Commandments in the other, as racist carictures of minorities gather at his feet. The banner at the bottom of the image says, “It is our holy duty to guard against the foreign hordes.” There’s no indication that the image was posted ironically or that the poster understood that the game does not endorse the sentiments portrayed in the mural.

After criticism broke, the group apparently took the image down or changed the privacy settings on its page.

Yes, the image is no longer there, and NLF had a few things to say about it on Facebook:

To all the publications and visitors to our site who wrote about our post of December 14th, regarding the “BioShock Infinite” Propaganda.

We have a zero tolerance policy on racism and have removed the post, as it has done its job. We are not the “Red Cross” and firmly believe that the Constitution and the future of America is at stake. The reality is our voice is rarely heard in the media let alone in DC. Thus we are and will remain unapologetically Constitutionalists.

We want to let you know you brought us the best site advertisement we’ve had all year… We were litterally [sic] flooded with new people not only laughing at us, which we expected, but also congratulating us on seeing things differently and having the guts to post it…

We invite all the media to visit us whenever you need a good story and hopefully all the hordes of people will follow you as well… It’s time they heard the other side of DC politics and if our plan works, we should be gaining many new readers now that they know we’re here.

One more thing MSNBC, we are the National Liberty Federation, not the National Liberation Foundation… Get it right next time!!!

In Liberty,
The Team at NLF

Guess NLF saw no issue with the image in the first place. Out of context of the video game it was racist. Simple as that. And most of its “new fans” agreed:

“Here’s a quote from Mark Twain that seems apropos—Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.”

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

“Terrible page. Breeding grounds for racism and ignorant discussions.”

And then there is this:

“There will always be a lighthouse, a city, and folks who don’t understand the word “satire.”

Huh?

As for the video game itself, here is a trailer:

And an explanation:

Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood. During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond — one that lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, and immersing players in a story that is not only steeped in profound thrills and surprises, but also invests its characters with what Game Informer called “An amazing experience from beginning to end.”

The image with George Washington in the video game is supposed to be “ironic,” you know, that the game’s creators are exposing our national ignorance. But you decide for yourself, since one critic of the NLF post actually raised some very strong points on Twitter with the game’s creator. Read for yourself:

 

 

The rest of the thread continues here.

As for us, SOMEONE was commissioned to create that piece of art. And eventually the “irony” of such an image would get lost. How could it not?

Minnesota Voter ID Site Utilizes Blatantly Racist Images on Its Site to Push for Voter ID Law

Is there something in the water these days? Have we really regressed as a country? Looks like it. Today's Racist Stereotype Example comes from Minnesota, where a Tea Party-backed Voter ID page is using the following image on its page:

 

Yes, next to the ghost and the zombie and the superhero is a guy in a Mexican outfit with a big blue sombrero, who is waiting behind a Black man in a prisoner's outfit.

The copy on the site says the following:

Making It EASIER To Vote And HARDER To Cheat

Photographic voter identification — a proposal whose time has finally come in Minnesota. Polls consistently show that a super-majority of Minnesota voters support Voter ID. But the bill that would make this provision a law has been repeatedly blocked in the Minnesota state legislature. The 2010 election changed the composition of the state legislature such that Voter ID now has a real possibility of becoming law.

This site provides a variety of resources to help Minnesotans learn more about the proposed legislation and to become advocates for passing the Voter ID. Let’s work together to improve the integrity of Minnesota’s elections by making Voter ID the law of the land in Minnesota.

Now Tennessee Tea Party Wants to Remove Slavery From School Textbooks

Isn't history used to learn from it? This month, the latest move to whitewash (no pun intended) history is coming out of Tennessee, where Tea Party groups presented the state legislature with five priorities for action. Besides the typical ones to reject the new national health care bill, the Tea Partiers also want to eliminate references to slavery from our nation's past.

As the original report out of Tennessee states:

Fayette County attorney Hal Rounds, the group’s lead spokesman during the news conference, said the group wants to address “an awful lot of made-up criticism about, for instance, the founders intruding on the Indians or having slaves or being hypocrites in one way or another.

“The thing we need to focus on about the founders is that, given the social structure of their time, they were revolutionaries who brought liberty into a world where it hadn’t existed, to everybody — not all equally instantly — and it was their progress that we need to look at,” said Rounds, whose website identifies him as a Vietnam War veteran of the Air Force and FedEx retiree who became a lawyer in 1995.

 

Let's hear the Turks break it down.

One American’s View on Immigration: “We Will Use Citizen’s Arrests”

When will we as a country stop being silent about such comments, which hide behind "history" and "facts," but in the end speak the real truth: send the Mexicans home.

Here are the comments we saw from BRITANNICUS (nice fake name, coward) today on a a web page. We publish it for your reading and commenting. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE LAST TWO PARAGRAPHS. Does it remind you of similar comments made by a country in Europe, say around 1938-1939?

WE THE PEOPLE

AMNESTY or as the Pro-illegal immigration groups prefer to label it–Immigration Reform. The truth is not ever going to happen? The 1986 IRCA was a utter calamity and costly for taxpayers. The 1986 (IRCA) Immigration Control and Reform Act that was a mass amnesty, which became the prime deception, played on the American taxpayer of all time. Because of despicably fraud and supreme neglect, the 2 million farmer’s laborers and other illegal workers who were provided a legal course to citizenship, that ultimately turned into 6 million. Even inexplicable those people, who received this pardon, vanished from their usual places of employment and turned up in the job force around the country that Americans citizens had to compete with. Future wise, Congress proposed the I-9 Form (Employment Eligibility Verification Form.) to ensure that all employees presented documentary proof of their legal eligibility, to accept employment in the United States. If the employee has a hiring issue, and chooses to contest an irregularity notice, the employer prints out the “Referral Letter” from the E-Verify program.

The letter contains information about resolving the problem, as well as the contact information for the (SSA) Social security Administration) or (USCIS) US Citizenship and Immigration Service, depending on which bureau was the source of the non-authorization to resolve the problem? As constantly the open border zealots, US Chamber of Commerce, ACLU and a radical mix of anti American organizations, have used the Liberal Press as a fulcrum to regrettably try to suppress the implementation of E-Verify. Are we not in the poorhouse with China, as it is? But this is no firm binder, because millions more people will strive to reach here, before that ominous Using the media these groups have also brought pressure on the administration not to espouse the Secure Communities law, which identifies criminal aliens through fingerprints by informing ICE. Then Subsequently E-Verify that is increasingly more popular each day by business owners. They are now cautiously aware that an I-9 audit puts their business license in jeopardy, as upheld by the Supreme Court.

NOW THE RUSH HAS BEGAN TO DEFEND CITIZENS AND LEGAL RESIDENTS AGAINST THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION. FIRST ARIZONA, NOW ALABAMA, GEORGIA AND SOON MANY MORE STATES WILL FOLLOW. E-VERIFY IS THE LAW OF THE LAND AND THOUSANDS OF FOREIGNERS NOT WANTING BE CONFRONTED THESE LAWS, WILL HEAD FOR THOSE STATES THAT HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED BY THE LEFTIST PROGRESSIVES OF OPEN BORDERS AGENDA’S.

As with the 1986 (IRCA) bill those who advocate against the laws are profiteers for more wealth, or to accumulate more votes or just to prepare America (according to the WikiLeaks group founder Julian Assange in secret documents) for merging with some kind of traitorous program, with Canada and Mexico with one currency. This stealth agenda was collusion between the Canadian and American Ambassadors.

The other side of the aisle on the corrupt Washington beltway, says we cannot afford to enforce immigration laws? Then my question we had better figure someway, for as the law stands we are just encouraging more illegal newcomers? So the second question, when does this invasion end, when does the lawmakers install laws, that make it impossible to stop this travesty? Are we just going to leave the doors open and hope for the best? All we are encouraging is even more poverty and distressed people, that taxpayers have to bear the full fiscal impact? Ten years from now, population numbers will be skyrocketing and the only winners are the profit-takers.

Whether we are coming out this miserable recession or not, we cannot afford any immigration amnesty. The first Amnesty in 1986 Ronald Reagan’s term of office, cost–$76 BILLION DOLLARS–by the time it was fulfilled. In today money it’s expected to cost $2.6 TRILLION DOLLARS as stated the Heritage Foundation. So taxpayers would be expected to cover that bill, lending most of it from China again? Are we not in the poorhouse with China, as it is? But this is no firm binder, because millions more people will strive to reach here, before that ominous inauguration day of a new Immigration Reform bill. If Congress is unable to cut spending in this recent of 14 .5 Trillion dollars US Treasury deficit, can anybody in the right frame of mind, tell us where we intend to get another $2.5 trillion dollars, to subsidize those illegal immigrants already living here? These dollars are inconceivable and even if there was another. It’s outrageous that Washington politicians would expect to bleed even more money from traumatic Taxpayers, when we are confronted by rejuvenating two nations abroad, in millions of dollars a day.

Amnesty, it will only further multitudes of people to come here? Washington legislators come and go, author bills, but are never held accountable for the financial wrecks they leave behind? Only Secure Communities, E-Verify can mitigate some of the pressure that will make foreign nationals think twice before crossing the border, or entering America by other means. This isn’t about any particular race, a person’s politics, religion as we are all suffering. It’s not even about the legal Hispanic population, as they are under the same pain of finding a job, stagnant wages and some type of exploitation. We are all the same boat and without stringent restrictions on immigration and its costs, that boat is heading towards rough waters and could easily sink. The TEA PARTY will slow down this process by confronting Washington aggressively on birthright citizenship to rescind it, which will sever the bond of 300.000 babies from foreign nation getting instant citizenship; cutting down on the annual monolithic cost to subsidize these offspring and families.

It will also bring to a halt, which it attributed to this wrongly conferred law, saving taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars a year? The TEA PARTY will examine these unfair taxes placed on Americans, by Liberal oriented courts, to appoint obligations to educate, provide health care that comes with the never ending tide of illegal aliens skirting our laws. The TEA PARTY will created bills to up the penalty, for entering America as a felony. This should have been the law of the land, decades ago? Personally, it has always translated to prove there was no serious intention to enforce these laws. It’s in the vein of a conspirator’s reason, why the Southern border fences completion remains a fiasco. The Tea Party will enforce the 1986 (IRCA) law as was planned, with no complicity of government agencies to stifle those laws, such as the business influence.

The TEA PARTY in 2012 will remove the Liberal influence and even have the empowerment to construct the real border fence, and mandating with no exemptions E-Verify and Secure Communities and indefinitely remove Sanctuary Cities nationwide. As the Tea Party grows against the powerful influences in Washington, these Representatives like TEA PARTY Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota will retire those pro-illegal immigrant politicians, Governors, mayors and all those who have adversely affected strong laws that have been introduced. The American People should not be forced by law, to pay for the impoverished people that trespass into America from other countries.

We can aid our fellow legal workers out, by taking immigration one step towards generic “Citizens Arrest. We cannot apprehend a suspicious individual, as it could lead to legal action. But we have the opportunity to join other “Whistle blowers” to inform ICE or local police as irregularities stand out. Not speaking reasonable English is a dead give-away, specifically in factory environment and if somebody has an accident through not comprehending a warning notice.

The time is ripe to contact their federal and State Representatives to insist they enact mandatory E-Verify, Secure Communities for every State, at the Senate—202-224–3121/ House—202-225–3121.

Biblical Jesus vs American Jesus

Food for thought.

Is Republican Latino Darling Marco Rubio a Political Coward?

So another partisan smackdown has begun, and this time it is Republican Senator Marco Rubio and MSNBC's Ed Schultz.

The words by Schultz were pretty strong. So where will this go?

Here is a just some of what Scultz says:
We don't save for retirement anymore because of these big 3. i want to ask you tonight to search your soul a little bit. are you in your 40s? are you in your 50s? is your mom and dad still alive? this man is suggesting that there is a generation of americans that care less about their parents because of social security, medicare and medicaid. this may be one of the most offensive things i have ever heard a united states senator say about the people ? of this country. he is attacking the character of americans because of social security, medicare and medicaid which has helped this country. it's helped millions of americans. so i will share with you my story tonight. i'm sure the senator has one, and i'm sure you do sitting at home tonight. if you're in your 40s and 50s, you're probably thinking, gosh, what's going to happen to mom and dad? are we ready for all this? and it's an emotional time because everybody goes through it. my mother was an english teacher, my father was an air nautical engineer who worked for the government. they paid for social security, they collected social security. my dad had his heart reworked and medicare paid for it. he paid into that system for years. my mom and dad raised five kids. my dad died with $900 in the bank. my dad was a man of character, he was intelligent, he loved the country, he obeyed the laws and he was not dependent on anyone else because he worked his ass off throughout his entire country. and i want to tell you, mr. rubio, that my parents went through the depression, and my parents did the world war ii thing. my parents lived in the unselfish generation. and for you to say they were lesser americans because they were involved in social security, medicare and medicaid, you owe my family at least an apology or at least be brave enough to give an explanation on this program in front of the camera as to what the hell you're really talking about. my mother used to teach accelerated english at granby school in virginia. my mother was wonderful. i remember her staying up late grading papers, working weekends and endless record plans. i remember our aunt margaret who moved in with us when she was ? failing. senator rubio, you mean to tell me there are no families in america today that do that, that that institution and loyalty and love of country and family is gone because you damn republicans just can't get rid of the big 3? we had social security back then when my family did all that. my mother died of alzheimer's, and to this day i think my sister is an absolute walking saint on her way to heaven for the way she took care of her mother. she was the closest one to my mother, and i think all of our kids would have done the same thing, but suzanne set the example. rubio is so stupid, he doesn't even know he's offensive. the ironic thing is that rubio's story really isn't much different from mine.
 
For me, medicare is not a political talking point. my parents came to the united states in the late 1950s. they worked hard for over 40 years to provide their children the chance to do all the things they themselves couldn't. but they never made much money. as a result, they retired with precious little in savings. medicare was, and is, the only way they could access health care. when my father got sick last year, medicare paid for his numerous hospital stays. and as he reached the end of his life, medicare allowed him to die with dignity by paying for his hospice care. my mother has many aging ailments. without medicare to pay for things, i can't imagine what life would be like for her. america needs medicare. we need it to continue without any benefit reductions for those like my mother currently in the system.
 
So will the real marco rubio please stand up? this is the golden boy of the republican party. everyone is ? talking about him as a vice presidential candidate. but when he gets a peach put in front of him and he can lean against the podium, it's a really different story, isn't it? he says rachel and i are extreme because we believe in the institutions that help make this country great? 80% of americans. what americans really want protect medicare examine medicame — and medicaid. 80%. do you think that's changed much? i think it's gotten stronger since the ryan plan has come out, and they have actually voted in the house to change medicare and medicaid. i'm offended by marco rubio, examine i think we're seeing that he is not a true american because he runs from debate. senator, come to me or i will go to you. you name the time and the place. and let's sit down and have a professional conversation about what you really mean when you say that we as americans have been weakened by something that has clearly benefited our society and allowed people to live in their later years in dignity. but the tape that we just played of you is kind of contradictory of the speech you gave at the reagan library. no wonder you're dodging the interview. you can go across the street and they'll throw you softballs all day long. one thing my dad taught me — maybe your dad taught you but it doesn't seem like it — never run from a debate and never be afraid to speak your piece if it comes from the heart and what you speak is the truth. i'll let you broadcast before a ? liberal audience. i'll give you an hour to talk about it. get in the arena if you really believe the senator. get nat reas get in the arena and tell the audience on msnbc that we are a weaker nation and explain why we're a weaker nation. you're a tea partier and you don't give a damn about any of the americans because, you see, it's kind of in your makeup, senator. now, unless your bio is wrong, i don't think you got any private sector experience in your background. you're a government guy. you're one of these typical government guys that says, well, everybody else has to serve it up because you've got your own. my father taught me to debate and to get into the arena, and i think your dad might be ashamed of the fact that you run from the cameras after you get away from the podium because i don't think you can explain yourself. i don't think you can explain to the american people just how weak we are. how about the boys in afghanistan? their parents are on social security. they come from weak parents? how about the men and women that have lost their lives fighting terrorism in this country? are they weak because they paid into social security? hell, you're nothing but a damn political phoney, senator. i don't know how the hell you got into office. and if i could, i would work like hell to defeat you, because i think you are the problem. you are the problem. you attack without facts. you attack without the human connection that your party has helped us lose in this country. get ? your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. should marco rubio defend his remarks as a guest on "the ed show"? text a for yes, b for no at 622639 and you can always go to ed.msnbc.com and we'll bring your remarks to the show. i just want to say one thing about "the ed show "n" and what my dad taught me. charge. if you believe it, don't back down. if this is where you stand, it's about your integrity, your heart, your desire, your soul. that's what being an american is is all about. that's why i fight for those teachers, that's why i fight for those firefighters, that's why i fight for those law enforcement officials, those librarians, those workers out there who are under attack by the people like marco rubio.
 
So, what do YOU think? Typical partisan crap? Or should Rubio appear on Schultz's show?
