    Bartender—send a double Wyborowa with a Zoloft chaser to the nice lady at the end of the table. But seriously, relax, Mika. Four months before an election in which they are poised to triumph, congressional Republicans are not about to muddy the waters by trying to impeach President Obama. But on today's Morning Joe, that reality did not prevent Mika Brzezinski from getting verklempt and asking for time to compose herself before introducing a segment on impeachment talk from Sarah Palin and Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst.

  • UK cops make first arrests for 'hate crime' against emo subculture

    Two people were arrested in Britain Thursday over an assault on an "emo" teenager -- the first such move after police began recording attacks on subculture members as “hate crimes.” The term, short for “emotive” or “emotional,” usually refers to an introspective style of music -- somewhere between punk and grunge -- and its associated fashion styles. Earlier this month, Greater Manchester Police became the first force in the U.K. to treat attacks on groups such as goths, emos and punks in the same way as crimes based on race, religion, disability or sexual orientation. The 16-year-old victim was “distinctively...

  • Iraq militia stone youths to death for "emo" style (Obama hands over Iraq to Iran)

    At least 14 youths have been stoned to death in Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shi'ite militants against youths wearing Western-style "emo" clothes and haircuts, security and hospital sources say. Militants in Shi'ite neighborhoods where the stonings have taken place circulated lists on Saturday naming more youths targeted to be killed if they do not change the way they dress. The killings have taken place since Iraq's interior ministry drew attention to the "emo" subculture last month, labeling it "Satanism" and ordering a community police force to stamp it out. "Emo"...

    At least 90 Iraqi teenagers with “emo” appearances have been stoned to death by religious extremists in Baghdad in the past month after an inflammatory interior ministry statement dubbed it “devil worshiping”, activists said. Iraq’s Moral Police released a chilling statement on the interior ministry’s website condemning the “emo phenomenon” among Iraqi youth, disturbingly declaring its intent to “eliminate” the trend. “The ‘Emo phenomenon’ or devil worshiping is being followed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate [the phenomenon] as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger,” the statement read. “They...

    Iraqi activists sounded the bell over the killing of dozens of teenagers by religious police for having “emo” haircuts. Activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar daily that at least 90 Iraqi teenagers with “emo” appearances have been stoned to death by the Moral Police in the country in the past month. The violent crackdown against “emo” Iraqi teenagers came after the Iraqi interior ministry declared them as “devil worshippers.” “The ‘Emo phenomenon’ or devil worshiping is being probed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate it as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming...

    AFP - When police officers arrived at 13-year-old Masha's home, searched her room and inspected her computer, it was not because they suspected her of any crime. Her offence was simply to be a devoted follower of the angst-ridden punk-rock subculture known as 'emo', in an ex-Soviet state where pressures to conform remain strong. "It was offensive and frightening at the same time," said Masha, a schoolgirl in the Armenian capital, clearly upset by the experience. Police in Yerevan have been conducting a campaign against the capital's small but controversial emo community since the recent suicides of two teenagers who...

    Blog Police Creeps Are George Soros Plants For at least a month now a crew of three or four screen names here on Free Republic have been used to spam post after post all across the board. They have decided that they are Free Republic's police, they think they speak for the whole board, and have been attempting to drive people off this site. But are they real FReepers? Or are they something else? It is pretty clear that they are being paid to do this by a George Soros-styled, left wing organization to spam FR, attack posters, and attempt...
  • Does anyone care what the "source" is?

    I'm just curious. Does it matter that to anyone that I don't fill in the "source" part of posts? Is it not enough that I give the URL? Does anyone except pissant give a damn? Get off my back, pissant! Just trying to do my part to save conservatism and fight Obamunism. Your pettiness about formatting gives this whole site a bad name. Not trying to start a fight; but get over yourself with the "proper posting" crap already!

    The trio of long-haired teenagers grasped the plaza wall to shield their bodies as hundreds of youths kicked and punched them while filming the beating on cell phone cameras. "Kill the emos," shouted the assailants, who had organized over the Internet to launch the attack in Mexico's central city of Queretaro. After police eventually steamed in and made arrests, the bloody victims lay sobbing on the concrete waiting for ambulances while the mob ran through the nearby streets laughing and cheering.

    Hey, you, emo kid in Kansas rocking out to Hawthorne Heights as you thumb through the current issue of Alternative Press and draw a cracked heart on the rubber toe of your Jack Purcell.  You think you got reason to be doleful? Well, then check out your ilk in Mexico. They've been getting their asses kicked lately as part of a country-wide anti-emo movement and now they're fighting back (this clip is in Spanish, but images speak louder than words. Check out the dudes arming themselves with leather belts. What is this, West Side Story?).  LA Weekly's Daniel Hernandez has...

    (West Hartford-WTNH) _ In a musical blend of praise and protest, 17-year old Eric Ritter of West Hartford voices his opinions about the Iraq War. Opinions about the war and young Americans who have died inspired Ritter to put his thoughts to music. In his song "The Loss of Good Men" Ritter sings about a soldier's funeral, soldier's that are not much older than him. "They think they are fighting for what we believe, but how can they fight for a cause that's not there," said Ritter. "People like to say we are fighting for freedom, fighting for liberty, but...

    I’m embarrassed I’m embarrassed to have an “R” stamped on my voter ID card Bear in mind I didn’t say I’m embarrassed to be a conservative, but in today’s political lexicon the two are linked like democrat equals liberal, thanks to the great conservative leaders that used to lead and run the party political machine that made these terms almost interchangeable in the American mind for the last twenty years. In a larger sense, I am way past embarrassed with our political process. Looking and watching Congress between the House and Senate is like watching a bunch of children play...

    A couple of months ago, Kris Birch decided it was time to buy himself some jeans. Instead of heading to the men's section at Fashion Square Mall's Pac Sun, which he manages, the 20-year-old Essexville resident bought a pair of women's jeans. And he felt no shame. "It wasn't a big deal at all," Birch said. "You were seeing it around a lot already by then." A fashion trend is directing young men -- early teens to early 20s -- toward the opposite side of the store, where they're buying girls' and women's pants. Birch said he bought his pants...
