Your blogger

When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Oh great, more American Taliban™ rhetoric:
 "He was born here but he's not American", "he's not like us." "He's not a true Patriot like us."

In my fifty one years on terra firma, I can't recall anyone either teaching me or telling me to "study it out". This is your brain on tea bagger, this is your brain on Mormonism and please don't let it happen to you.

Embarrassing yes, and yet I am never too surprised by the ignorance of the unlettered republican.

What you see here is your classic "Southern Strategy" code for the "N" word. Southern racists cannot spew it out like they did in the 1960s, so they have to be more subtle about it. If this benightedness wasn't so sad I'd say this is one of the funniest things I have seen in a while. I'm almost feeling sorry for the poor robotic creature as she apparently hasn't "studied it out". To call this woman an idiot would be an insult to the idiots of our world.

A female tea bagger who can't explain what "communism" is, or what one has to do to "study out" - to get this false sensation of being right, or to come to this delusional conclusion of why all Americans are not Americans "like us". Reminds me a story I experienced - as I overheard a woman at a Catholic Church rummage sale recommending that her friend read "Atlas Shrugged", because it was so good at describing what's going on in America today. She couldn't wait to read "Atlas Shrugged II". I was dying to tell her it was written by an atheist who hated religion, but you can't fix stupid.


"Study It Out” -  In Mormonism means, decide in your mind - and make everything else fit with it. And if it isn't right, God will let you know...

..........Believe it - and if God doesn't disagree - it must be right. Nauseating, isn't it?
