Joke of the Day. Witch Hunt! Get out the pitchforks. The torches are lit. The brew is brewing.
A new website has been launched called Stop the Witch Hunt. Isn’t it interesting how they turn things around. They are the ones who are on a witch hunt. They have named names – made a list. So very clever. And the so called witches they are hunting, are named in the press release below (excerpt):
“”This Halloween, take action against the lies and hate speech that Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Lou Dobbs, Paul Brown, and Pat Buchanan have been spewing in a
nationwide witch hunt.””
On their web site it says:
“”Scary. That’s what this mob of right wing ideologues are to most of us. Scarier still, they have a national platform to use code words and race baiting to spread fear and mistrust. It would be sad, even funny, if so many people weren’t hurt by them. Hate crimes are up. False accusations and outright lies have cost good people their jobs and their reputations. And we don’t know who will be next.””
Ah, yes, it is certainly scary – this mob of right wing ideoloques. Especially with all the scary code words and the race baiting that spread fear and mistrust. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid!!
(This song is first released by Bobby (Boris) Pickett in 1962, #1 hit Monster Mash on the original Garpax label. This is a good video – much later, of course.)
Oh, the games people play, the psychological games they play. They start a black list, go on a witch hunt, and present themselves as if they are the good guys.
I haven’t researched this to a great degree but it was fairly easy to find out who is behind the website. An organization called Center for Media Justice. They are basically a community organizing group, and they have on the Board of Directors, such as, an activist and lawyer who is a 2001 Soros Justice Fellow for her work with Grassroots Leadership; another who is connected with the New Orleans Parents Organizing Network, ColorofChange.org (a Van Jones organization) and is a cofounder of the League of Pissed Off/Young Voters; another who is a hip hop journalist….

It’s a good thing they slipped that hate crime legislation in the defense bill, huh? I think it’s pretty hateful to shoot at someone or their home, but I’m just not sure what the elements of a hate crime would be.
HAUNTED HOUSE FOR SALE – 3.8 million
It seems that nearly every residence of a certain age in New Orleans comes with reports of ghosts and the Lafitte Guest House is no exception. The Bourbon Street boutique hotel is a three-story guest house with 14 restored guest rooms with private baths. HauntedHouses.com says the house is home to several spirits including the ghost of a little girl who died of yellow fever.
ADDRESS: 1003 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70116 | 504.581.2678
Lafitte’s Guest House can be found on the corner of Bourbon St. and St. Philip St., just half a block up from Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Pub and a few blocks from the bar action on Bourbon Street, in the residential area just north of the heart of the entertainment area of New Orleans.
Lafitte’s Guest House probably got its name for being so close to Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Pub. This restored mansion is described as an 1849, 3 storied French-style luxury boutique hotel, with an attached wing on the back of the mansion.
