Shameful Minnesotan of the Day

In the past, I've targeted those on the Left who have committed acts or uttered nonsensical sayings that are downright shameful. As I live in the Leftist stronghold of the Twin Cities, I thought I would profile Minnesota native Jessica Lange.

In the piece below, courtesy of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Lange admonishes the Bush Administration and by extension, those of us on the Right, for waging an illegal and usurping our rights.

One of Lange's tenets was that our government has taken away the right of habeus corpus; I've heard this liberal clamor before. My first questions to them is, "have you EVER had your habeus corpus rights violated? Are your phones bugged? Are your emails read by faceless government agents?"

The answer is inevitably, NO. Despite what the liberals would have us all believe, our phone calls are not being monitored; our books, our emails, etc are NOT being seized by the government.

Ironically, the Democrats are moving a hate crime through committee currently to enact a hate crime law, which would make any statement or belief uttered against anyone representing non-Christian religions (i.e. Islamists) or alternative lifestyles, not to mention anyone that has a beef with traditional America. Furthermore, the Democrats are covertly working on legislation that would attempt to eliminate our only mouthpiece against mindless Liberalism: talk radio.

I always find it comical when I hear Liberals screaming that conservatives are stealing their rights; but have you ever noticed that if you disagree with a Liberal, generally they either attempt to shout you down or resort to name-calling?

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Oscar-winner and Minnesota native Jessica Lange bashed the Bush administration and denounced the war in Iraq during a commencement address at Sarah Lawrence College.

The star of "Tootsie" and "Blue Sky" was applauded by students Friday at the small liberal arts college after comparing the conflict with the Vietnam War. She said the graduates have "a heavy burden" to chart a new path for the country.

"We are living in an America that, in the last seven and a half years, has waged an unnecessary war, established prison camps, condoned torture, employed corporate armies, eliminated the right of habeas corpus, practiced extraordinary rendition, and believe me, this is only a partial list," Lange said.

Lange asked the graduates, including her 22-year-old daughter Hannah Shepard, to commit themselves to the "pursuit of peace." Lange, who was born and raised in Cloquet, also lived with her family for many years in Stillwater.
