According to Breitbart it was in fact Michelle O. leading the applause.

They’re not winning. If anything, they are making people stand up for what they believe in. Maybe now we will finally get to see who is who. I’d rather know who my enemy is and how strong my enemies – and my friends- really are.

Who goes around whining about what they don’t believe in? Let’s see, I don’t believe in Muhammad, I don’t believe in Buddah, I don’t believe in Maobama, I don’t believe in Krishna…… who cares? You don’t believe – then just shutup about it already!! Let us celebrate Christmas and you go ahead and celebrate ‘Winter Solstice’ or whatever you call your pagan holiday. Happy Birthday Jesus. Come back soon. We miss you!

What, you never told anyone, “Oops, my fist slipped! Sorry about that.”?

Working hard to get your message across? 3x on one page, wow! Did you ever consider that O’Reilly was simply stating what the Supreme Court has mandated, not what he himself believes about the second amendment? I saw a video where he felt it was only right for a threatened female school teacher to be able to carry a gun to school. How does that jive with your argument? Put away your xerox machine and remember that Bill’s a journalist trying interview fairly.

A good way to see if he is at a safe distance – shoot him. If the bullet doesn’t hurt then he’s at a safe distance. Seems so obvious!

I always thought Muslims believed the false prophet would come in the midst of chaos. In any event, as a proud Christian, willing to die for my faith, I resent being admonished by any Muslim that I should do more.

@Stage9 What are they (OWS) taking us back to? The Dark Ages, naturally!

One just has to feel sorry for the police officers that have to listen to these morons for hours on end. Hey, maybe they could protest for higher wages for the officers. At least they have earned it.

Why is there so much vitriol from both sides lately? You do realize that there are agitators posting on this site that are trying and succeeding in getting both sides so worked up that sooner or later it will lead to violence in the streets? And not necessarily only from the useful idiots at OWS! Peter Schiff had the right idea! If we stop communicating with one another then what’s the point? The whole idea on the part of those initiating this thing is to get us to fight against each other and then they can step in and clean up the mess! We all know how serious this is so let’s use some common sense.

I speak 3 languages and never had to learn a foreign pledge or anthem. The 15 year old girl and her dad are patriots in my book. Tolerance ought to have its limits.

Actually, Glenn did comment on the fact that bankruptcy does not remove the obligation to repay student debt. After all those loans are guaranteed by the government, are they not? And since students are not like Solyndra what should one expect?

The guy is trying something different. Where’s your sense of humor? He effectively ridicules so much of what is expected in a cv these days and what’s the point of some of it? Do they really need your life history? Do they need to know everything you ever thought or did? He doesn’t mind laughing at himself and at others. Kudos!
LeGauche: Hope you get a job that challenges all the talent that you have!

Beckel is hilarious. How can anyone not like him? He so clearly expresses the views of the uproariously ridiculous left! If we don’t let them say it, how will we know what stupid thoughts they are thinking? At least they sidelined Colmes! September 12 is just around the corner. Go Glenn!

Having been born in Germany, I may have a different viewpoint of left and right. Having said that, I do have some understanding of the National Social (Nazi) mind-set. I was confronted by it in my own family and on the streets. I said that Nazis are EXTREME right wing. Thus Communist, Socialist, Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, Anarchist, Fascist. (Sorry if I left anyone out) They are extreme right! The socialist collectivism only serves to draw people in. Aggressive expansion is only to acquire more land for the aggressor nation, not for the benefit of others, or really even for their own people. Notice that Nazis were quite willing to slaughter anyone that did not agree with their ideology, or that did not meet their exacting standards. Socialists and Communists used the same methods, but the outcome is different. The Soviets encouraged work, but supported all. Nazis: You either work for the benefit of the state (not the collective) or you are not worth having around.
By the way, I do recognize that American born folks have a different viewpoint. The political spectrum is just different, but it is worth recognizing the differences.

National Socialists (Nazis) were present and active in many European countries as well as in the U.S.A before WW II! If the Nazis (ultra right) are starting to rise up again all over Europe, what makes anyone think the same thing will not happen in North America? As the ultra left becomes more active and violent here in North America the crazies on the right are bound to once again feel intimidated. The result: fanatics on both sides clashing in the streets. Great excuse for Obi and his cohorts to bring out the big guns. By the way, Nazis are definitely right wing. They place national interest with powerful (big government) first. Individual welfare last. Everyone works for the government (Fatherland!) Best thing would be to not tolerate either!
This is the fallacy of the false political center.
National SOCIALISM is not rightist. Aside from permitting a tightly controlled private sector exist (bureaucrats don't build good cars), fascism is essentially the same as communism and both are flipsides to the same old nasty socialist pot metal coin. To the right of the socialists are people who believe in limited government, natural rights, and free enterprise. Those believing in the aforementioned ideals were always the American center; the problem came in the late 19th century when the progressives and their ilk took a massive left turn. When someone is that far to the left, anyone in the center looks like a rightist.
We aren't looking for a crude fist-fight - we will do our speaking loud and clear on November 6, 2012.
Berndt... "By the way, Nazis are definitely right wing. They place national interest with powerful (big government) first. Individual welfare last. Everyone works for the government (Fatherland!) "
Sorry pal, but you are seriously mistaken on your political understanding. Nazis beliefs were definitely not Right Wing. A powerful big central government with everyone working for the government, putting individual welfare last. is the antithesis of the right.
We, the right, believe in smaller government and closer to the local level. We believe in individual liberties and freedoms not collectivism, of personal responsibility not welfare, of freedom of religion not from religion, built on being a nation of laws not of men.
Your assertion the a big central government and collectivism being right wing is simply false. These are left wing and progressive positions.
By the way... the main difference between the Nazis and the communists were very small, very small indeed. The Nazis believed in the state with worldwide domination while the Communists believed in world domination without states.
Otherwise they were very similar.
