Before 9-11, in many parts of the country Dr. Laura (Schlesinger) occupied the talk radio slot now occupied by Glenn Beck. She had a habit that I always admired, namely speaking to her callers in a manner that befit their station other than her own.
You see, Dr. Laura is a PhD, a very smart lady, but with a short fuse for certain kinds of behavior by her callers, especially pretentiousness and whining. When a person calls seeking absolution for a selfish act, she tears into them like a tiger. She kicks up. But when a simple woman calls, possessing a lesser command of the King’s English, maybe even a touch of hillbilly or redneck, Dr. Laura is as gentle as a kitten and as patient as a saint. She kisses down.

When all else fails, call them names and be nasty. So goes Mssr. Meckler. This time he’s after Virginia state Sen. Richard H. Black. The “sin” of Sen. Black is not agreeing with Meckler’s “project” and he derailed legislation there.

Meckler’s partner in the Convention of States is a bully who lives in Loudoun County, Virginia. He started Patrick Henry College there so he thinks he has weight to throw around at people who don’t agree with his project. This time his rage is directed at Virginia state Senator Richard Black, who is opposed to using Article V. Black also happens to be the senator for the district in which Farris resides.

This disrespectful email was forwarded to me. It was signed by “Tamara Colbert, State Director, Convention of States Project”:
Notice the language used: A Shiv in the Back.

My friend Augustino in Oregon has made it a hobby to study the manners and customs of the Left. He says there are enough insecurities and self-contradictions among them as to make Dr Freud curious about them as a type and he plans to write a book about it. He even has a crew who’re trained to pick fights with them on the internet by pushing on those insecurity buttons.
With that in mind I asked Augie to look at some Article V web-articles, at the behest of another friend (in Virginia) who’s been involved in that Article V debate. He said he saw some similarities to what has always been associated with leftwing slime-tactics, and wanted to know if Augie agreed.
He does. Continue reading If it Walks like a Leftist, and Talks like a Leftist…

Meckler trashes publicly anyone who disagrees with his Convention of States project. Below is a snippet of his rant about a member of the John Birch Society who wrote an article disagreeing with him. This time his wrath is aimed at Joe Wolverton, who is a writer for The New American:

A few weeks ago there was an attempt to destroy the reputation of an elderly constitutional scholar who travels making speeches of the dangers of an Article V convention. Her name is Publius Huldah.
Publius is a respected writer on Freedom Outpost and this author learned of this hit-job-in-writing from an article there, Convention of States Uses Alinsky Tactics in Attempt to Destroy Publius Huldah.

Meckler or someone on his staff, we are sure, monitors and posts on his Convention of States Facebook page. The way we know for sure is there are many “responses” to FB posters. However, where he is lax is he never boots off or criticizes bulliers. For example, see this prolific bullier below:

Meckler keeps telling us his Convention of States “project” is about proposing amendments to our Constitution. One argument against Article V is amendments could be ratified which could have a detriment against conservatism. After all, radical Lefties like Lawrence Lessing would just love to eliminate 1A, 2A, and Citizens United using an Article V convention.

I’ve visited several Article V sites, both pro and con, and have noted a strong mocking tone by proponents of the Article V process against people who show up with questions. Several have told me how viscious the anti-V crowd is with their comments and questions but I can’t find any, and so I have asked them to show me.
And they won’t. Or can’t.
