“Can I Haz Teh ‘Memory Hole,’ Kevin?”

This is funny on a multi-level plane of existence:
We Get The Strangest Requests…

Another Bullet in the Old Gray Lady’s Ass

Fer cryin’ out loud, the day before the advert ran they printed a huge puff piece on MoveOn.org’s “Americans Against Escalation in Iraq” in their Sunday Magazine… why’d they bother charging MoveOn.org anything at all? According to that monstrosity known as McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Reform, couldn’t this “discount” be considered an “in kind” contribution?
[UPDATE: Answer seems to be “You Betcha”]

According to Abbe Serphos, director of public relations for the Times, “the open rate for an ad of that size and type is $181,692.”

A spokesman for MoveOn.org confirmed to The Post that the liberal activist group had paid only $65,000 for the ad – a reduction of more than $116,000 from the stated rate.

A Post reporter who called the Times advertising department yesterday without identifying himself was quoted a price of $167,000 for a full-page black-and-white ad on a Monday.

Considering how their stock has been tanking, you’d imagine that shareholders–even some from the controlling Sulzberger clan–should be freaking out right now. Doing something like this just further dilutes an already watered down reputation, and most likely lead to more erosion of their subscription rolls, all to further Pinch and his editors’ political agenda, a cabal who are willing to ignore the bottom line and continue trashing the company’s brand by pulling stunts like this….

Will this be enough for enough of their Class “A” shareholders to finally say “Enough!” and bring Pinchy to heel (or show his ass out the door) before their shares are worthless pieces of paper?

Coda: Lot’s of newspapers and other media outlets have ripped on MoveOn.org for that slanderous advert, but I haven’t seen hardly any condemnation from them aimed at the Times for running it.

Eurabia: The Fall of Brussels

A lot of the Lefty retards constantly accuse BusHitlerCo of shredding the Constitution in its monomaniacal pursuit of power. They have claimed that BusHitlerCo “silences” any who oppose our new Overlords’ worldview. They used the phrase, “crushing of dissent,” so many times that it’s been sorta made meaningless; after all, no one has shut them up. It’s also been adopted by their ideological opponents to point out that, especially in academia, any who don’t toe the PC line actually are shut down if they don’t shut up. The Puppy Blender (aka: Evil Glenn) has used it so many times it ranks up there with “Heh,” and “Indeed,” in the Instapundit lexicon.

Anyway, for you moonbats who really think anything BusHitlerCo has done amounts to the government “silencing” you, get a load of what’s going down in the EU’s capital:

To put yesterday’s events into perspective, let us look at some unarguable facts. SIOE and Vlaams Belang are legally established movements operating within a democracy. The reason for their demonstration may not have been to the taste of our European elites, but the gradual erosion of Europe’s culture and heritage in the face of Islamic expansion is a reality nonetheless. In a democracy, a legitimate movement with legitimate concerns should be allowed to make those grievances known in a public manner.

The demonstration was banned under the mischievous pretext that it might provoke a violent Muslim reaction and/or its supporters were in contravention of European laws pertaining to racism and xenophobia. This ban was subsequently upheld at the appeal court.

I have read some comments suggesting that if the march was banned then it is no surprise that arrests were made. This is true, but it rather misses the point that if a differing political viewpoint can be criminalised in the Europe of 2007, then democracy is over, dead, ceased to exist, shuffled off this mortal coil. Europe is an ex-democracy.

Now that, boys and girls, is “crushing of dissent.” With batons, K-9s, and everything your fever dreams tell you our government does to pissant schmucks like you.
