This is REALLY [Not] Funny [Anymore] – UPDATED

Buzzfeed is all agog over Obama’s secondhand campaign slogan.

But that’s not the funny part. If you can manage to read the entire post, you’ll find this gem:

According to the Obama campaign, the video will be played at President Obama’s first campaign rallies on Saturday.

First? I thought his first campaign rallies where the first week of his administration. After all, he’s held more fundraisers in his first (and hopefully only) term than the last five Presidents combined.

Yep, FIVE.

Can you hear me now?

UPDATE: Oh my, it gets even better. From the Washington Times

The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.

The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

UPDATE II: Honestly, folks, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. Sing along with the Brown Shirts now…

Now it’s not so funny.

Dissent for me, but not for thee

Twitter has a problem. Conservative twitter accounts are being suspended “unexpectedly.” Self-proclaimed armies of liberals flag-spam legitimate accounts, simply for disagreeing with liberal dogma. It’s what all the cool kids do.

The latest victim is Chris Loesch, husband of Dana. Twitter evidently has no problems with the vicious attacks on Dana, but suspend Chris when he defends her.

Internet bullying is alive and well.

#freeChrisLoesch is trending worldwide. Too bad Twitter execs are asleep at the wheel. This would be a excellent opportunity to prove they are for free speech and on-line collaboration. A “teachable moment,” if you would.

Don’t hold your breath.
