GITMO FOR KIDS? Senator Buttar's Idea Of "Tough Love"

Even "Wayward" Kids Don't Deserve This!

The Commercials for West Ridge Academy in Logan, Utah have touching testimonies from parents who relate how their families were being torn apart by their kids who were "out of control" into drugs" "emotionally troubled." Go to You Tube here and here. The one where we hear a choir in the back of a slideshow is particularly heart-grabbing.

So, is it all just bullshit? When you sign on to YouTube, notice the video entitled "Trapped in a Mormon Gulag". It has only had about 1200 views. Now notice something else: the commercials have even less views. Why? Is it just some sort of salacious factor? Trapped in A Mormon Gulag was brought to the public's "attention" more than five weeks ago. Haven't heard of it? Why not?

Something is not right. Not right at all.

The testimonies of some of the "boys" were vastly different than those of the commercials' parents. One of the most telling discrepancies of this whole scandal of abuse is that the Mormon Church denies proselytizing on the grounds of the "Academy" (aka as The Utah Boys Ranch). This is ridiculous: if the only "chapel" is Mormon and there are three Mormon missionaries residing on site, would you call it secular? To ANY degree?
According to the piece in Pam's House Blend:
It is a Mormon-funded and staffed facility, and religious indoctrination is a fundamental aspect of the school. There was sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, suicide, staff corruption, and escape. A major Utah political figure, Senator Chris Buttars, was the executive director
Senator Buttars. Check out yesterday's post (below). Now think of Jesse Helms running a Gitmo for wayward teens. Well, maybe not quite a Gitmo, since the kids were able to run away or were returned to their parents (with a somewhat changed "attitude"). Or if you're in a more compassionate mode, think of Fred Phelps running it. No matter which way you view it, West Ridge Academy is PUNISHMENT dealt out under the guise of "tough love." James Dobson might like it, but most of America won't like it if the truth comes out.

Just a thought.

Ann Coulter: Too White To Be Clean?

Hey, It's Time For Another Ann Coulter(geist) Bash
- About Something She ACTUALLY SUPPORTS!?!

It's very easy for pundit Ann Coulter to write her columns and books: just figure out who to bash and keep at it until someone calls you a liar and produces proof. It's all so formulaic: who's liberal and popular? Bash them - for ANYTHING! If you can't get Obama on some policy, mention Biden's hair plugs! Insult EVERYONE by going after their icons! Insult! Insult! Insult!

But being formulaic is boring. Yes, Ann Coulter(geist) is boring. What's interesting? Maybe the extreme few she favors, which come down to the number two: herself and something else. So what's the something else?

In her latest foaming-mouth tome — Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America, released on Jan. 6 — Coulter spends the better part of three pages defending a group called the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), which The New York Times had described as a “thinly veiled white supremacist organization.” Coulter begs to differ.

“There is no evidence on its Web page that the modern incarnation of the CCC* supports segregation,” she says. “Apart from some aggressive reporting on black-on-white crimes — the very crimes that are aggressively hidden by the establishment media — there is little on the CCC website suggesting” that the group is racist. Indeed, its main failing is “containing members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.”

Oh Ann! THREE PAGES of this? Come on! You know better than that! Their website is obvious and offensive.

Here in their own Statement of Beliefs:

-We believe the United States is a Christian country -We believe the United States is a European country and that Americans are part of the European people.
-We believe in the traditional family as the basic unit of human society and morality, and we oppose all efforts by the state and other powers to weaken the structure of the American family through toleration of sexual licentiousness, homosexuality and other perversions, mixture of the races, pornography in all forms, and subversion of the authority of parents.

So, by extension (in her support), Ann Coulter is: Christofascist, homophobic, misogynistic, racist and anti-immigration.

from wikipedia:

The Anti-Defamation League describes the Council of Conservative Citizens as a "white supremacist" organization. The CofCC is considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to be part of the "neo-confederate movement." The NAACP, League of United Latin American Citizens, SPLC (which lists it as a "hate group") Anti-Defamation League, and even some conservative groups, such as Conservative Political Action Conference, consider the Council of Conservative Citizens a racist and homophobic organization, pointing to its purported advocacy of white supremacy. This view is partially based on the CofCC's statement of principles, which condemns racial integration, immigration by non-Europeans, homosexuality, and interracial marriage.

Hooray For The British! They Can't Tolerate The Intolerant!

Phelps Barred From UK

(London) The Rev. Fred Phelps and his daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, have been banned from entering the UK.UK Border Agency said Phelps and his daughter, reportedly the number two person in the church, will be stopped by immigration officials if the try to enter the country and immediately placed on a flight back to the US.

“The Home Secretary has excluded both Fred Phelps and his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper from the UK,” a spokesperson for the Agency said Thursday.

“Both these individuals have engaged in unacceptable behavior by inciting hatred against a number of communities. The Government has made it clear it opposes extremism in all its forms.”

I still say we should leave Gitmo open for the Phelps Klan. Better yet: send them to the Mormon Gulag! Ooops, then again, maybe not. Fred Phelps shouldn't be anywhere near Chris Buttars; they might get to hatching anti-gay terrorist plots!

Hey! As an individual how has "engaged in unacceptable behavior by inciting hatred" that means these people can't go to England either:

Michelle Malkin, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbow-wow, Rod Parsley, John Hagee, Chris Buttars, Lou Sheldon, (all of) FOX News, and...


Don't forget, Ann, we (I, this blog) were the FIRST to warn you not to take your palomino-like carcass to England (Princess Ann would try to ride you!) and now it's official!

You had best stay within the confines of your stable!

Just a thought.
