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,CNN and Andy 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.

JANINE TURNER, NOT JUST ANOTHER PRETTY FACE [SNARK]

RIGHT WING NUTTER JANINE TURNER


Right wing nutter actress Janine Turner asserted to Bullshit Mountain Business News on Monday that Darth Vader’s costume was black because Star Wars movies were based on the Bible.

Over the weekend, MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry had suggested that there was a racial component to Darth Vader’s character because he was dressed in black and voiced by a black man. But after the character turned away from the Dark Side, Darth Vader was revealed to be a white man.

Turner responded to Harris Perry on Monday by warning that “political correctness is going to be responsible for killing more Americans.”
“Regarding Darth Vader, please!” she exclaimed. “The Bible talks darkness and light. This is about evil and good. Darkness and light.”
“This doesn’t have anything to do with anything else, this goes back to biblical times,” she continued. “It’s been discussed in the Bible, Jesus talks about it. It’s about darkness and light, evil and good.”



Turner pointed out that it was “always” that way in the movies: “Evil people come up on the black horses, the good people come up on the white horses. I mean, you know, this is darkness and evil.”
According to the actress, the discussion of racial issues in Star Wars is the kind of rhetoric that is “ruining our country and putting us in this clear and present danger.”
Turner said that she had found a clause in the Constitution (Article I, Section 10, Clause 3) that would allow “the states to take this back into their own hands.”

Because the states were facing “imminent danger” they could come together and form their own union to deal with immigration and other issues, she advised.
“We’re in clear and present danger, we’re beyond imminent,” Turner opined. “So the states can legally and constitutionally come together to defend the American people.”


Hey Janine, lets leave constitutional law to the professionals please.
