Since we are allowing people to identify as what they wish and Twitter is now censoring members of congress and even news organizations who dare say otherwise I think it’s prudent to ask this question:

If Rachel Levine tomorrow decides to identify as Napoleon Bonaparte, chooses to dress like Napoleon, gets surgically altered to look like Bonaparte and gains a following of people who choose to conform to said identify, Will you lock out any account that doesn’t cry “Vive L’Empereur” when demanded by Levine or any of those who conform to this new identity?

If not why not?

In the Wisconsin battle the Koch Brothers have been portrayed as evil incarnate, liberals are ready to try to go after him financially but the Unions who actually work for him, suddenly say, not so fast:

A number of organizations are advocating a boycott of the products that come from companies owned by the Koch family. This is problematic for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it could potentially hurt the wrong people.

The Koch brothers own Georgia Pacific. It is an American consumer goods company that makes everyday products like facial tissue, napkins, paper towels, paper cups and the like. Their plants are great examples of American advanced manufacturing. Incidentally,

GP makes most of its products here in America. The company’s workforce is highly unionized. In fact, 80 percent of its mills are under contract with one or more labor union. It is not inaccurate to say that these are among the best-paid manufacturing jobs in America.

This presents a dilemma and a paradox. While the Koch brothers are credited with advocating an agenda and groups that are clearly hostile to labor and labor’s agenda, the brothers’ company in practice and in general has positive and productive collective bargaining relationships with its unions.

While some companies are running from investment in American jobs, The Koch brothers’ Georgia Pacific just reached agreements with its primary union in the paper industry to invest more than a half a billion dollars in capital to essentially create two state-of-the-art machines that conserve fiber and energy at two separate union mills.

But….but they’re evil! They want to break unions, they are greedy corporate guys who like conservatives, this can’t be true, this can’t be true, la la la la I don’t hear you.

Expect the left to ignore this plea to protect actual good paying American jobs. This isn’t about jobs, it’s about political power and left long ago stopped caring about the actual jobs of actual union members.

All last week you haven’t been able to miss planned parenthood ads talking about detecting cancer in a woman and her life being saved. Unfortunately those cries of “millions of women in this country are gonna lose their healthcare access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms” have collided with reality:

Liveaction shot this video and Andrew Breitbart is promoting it. If you want to know why the left hates Andrew Breitbart so much this is it.

Who are you going to believe?

Bill Maher talking on his show

Or an actual video of Sarah Palin answer question from a crowd in India?

I am sure this will get very little coverage in the normally Palin Hungry MSM. When you actually see Palin unfiltered by a hostile media it’s hard to paint her as some kind of idiot.
