Marco Rubio now quoting Jay-Z lyrics

http://twitter.com/#!/marcorubio/status/272496959561007104

Dissing rapper Pitbull as a purveyor of party music rather than message music was a good first step at establishing his hip-hop credentials, but is quoting Jay-Z a step too far? Sen. Marco Rubio likes message rappers, but Jay-Z’s message in 2012 was loud and clear: vote Obama.

Are we reading too much into Rubio’s tweet? Probably. But now that iPod playlists are fair game for fact-checking in campaigns, expect to hear more from both sides of the aisle.

Yes folks @marcorubio just tweeted a verse from Jay-Z, #GOP is trying #tcot

@bobbybroad @marcorubio We’re allowed.

@maryk2345 @marcorubio yes, but its still funny. BTW it would be funny if a Democrat said it as well

— Bobby Broadway (@BobbyBroad) November 25, 2012

You mean like when presidential candidate John Kerry said he was “fascinated by rap and hip hop“? That was funny.

‘Robin Thicke hate is heavy here’ at #SlutWalk 2013 [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/exileinflyville/status/376424636361101312

We know quite a few conservative women who’d rather shoot a rapist than spit in his face; as Dana Loesch noted at the recent Bridging the Gap summit, “firearms are a feminist tool.” Still, while some consider concealed carry the most direct route to female empowerment, others chose to conceal very little as they took to the streets for the 2013 SlutWalk.

SlutWalk started in 2011 in response to a Toronto police officer’s suggestion that “women should avoid dressing like sluts” to reduce their chances of being sexually assaulted. What other possible response could there be than to dress like sluts en masse and hit the streets?

Chicago’s Daley Plaza was the site of perhaps the biggest demonstration.

Dr. Phil’s “drunk sex” tweet, which was so brutally (and hilariously) parodied on Twitter, made an appearance.

Several other cities around the world hosted their own marches, but as far as we know, Ottawa was the only one to feature a performance by the Radical Grannies.

Miley Cyrus and her tongue dominated the headlines last week following her twerkfest at the Video Music Awards, but a few perceptive souls (like actress Patricia Heaton) weren’t about to let 36-year-old Robin Thicke off the hook for his part in the spectacle. His “Blurred Lines” might be the song of the summer, but its message didn’t go over well at SlutWalk.

‘Really, dude?’: Jason Aldean brings ‘home wrecker’ girlfriend to #CMTAwards

http://twitter.com/#!/M3lissaMcDonald/status/474337988097241088

Well, this is chutzpah. Country music star Jason Aldean brought his girlfriend Brittany Kerr to the #CMTAwards tonight. Kerr is the woman Aldean was caught canoodling with in a bar in 2012 while still married to Jessica Aldean — his then-wife and mother of his two children.

Action alert: Ask Barbra Streisand to answer for funding the work of political terrorist Brett Kimberlin

http://twitter.com/#!/AceofSpadesHQ/status/206039896882823168

Good question: does Barbra Streisand know she’s funding a radical political terrorist’s assault on free speech?

The Streisand Foundation provides grants to non-profit groups working on a national level to support environmental issues, women’s issues, civil liberties, civic engagement, education, and civil rights. Oh, and it also contributes to the Justice Through Music Project founded and run by “Speedway Bomber” and serial harasser of bloggers Brett Kimberlin.

Why does the IRS grant exemption for bogus organizations founded by domestic terrorist "Speedway Bomber?" #JTMP #BrettKimberlin

— Cheryl (@MuddleVanHeck) May 23, 2012

Why has the Tides Foundation, Barbara Streisand Foundation & the Heinz Family Foundation donated to a terrorist? http://t.co/jaaNFDCA

— Daniel Webb (@DWebbVA) May 22, 2012

Matthew Vadum reports Barbra Streisand “has given JTMP at least $10,000 through her Barbra Streisand Foundation since 2006 ($5,000 in 2006 for general operations and $5,000 in 2008 for general operations).”

JTMP is also a recipient of grants from the Tides Foundation and the Heinz Family Foundation, chaired by Teresa Heinz Kerry. More background on Kimberlin’s shady group at Breitbart.com.

Free speech activists are demanding that Barbra Streisand answer for backing the work of a convicted felon who revels in using vicious intimidation tactics to silence people who so much as mention his terrorism.

Hey @BarbraStreisand, what did you know and when did ya know it? #BrettKimberlin http://t.co/0gy9SXxd (everyone please rt)

— Film Ladd (@FilmLadd) May 25, 2012

Did Babs know who the beneficiary of her money was, and that her money would go to terrorizing journalists who dared to write about the “Speedway Bomber?”

Or was she a rube?

Either way, Streisand has a lot to answer for and the Twitterverse is holding her feet to the fire.

.@barbrastreisand could you at least condition your donations on his stopping of all *current* and *future* harassments?

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) May 25, 2012

.@barbrastreisand even if you don't mind the bombs in the past, can you precondition your donations to insist he stop making new victims?

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) May 25, 2012

Yes, sunlight is the best disinfectant. Who's helping fund #brettkimberlin? Hello @barbrastreisand==>http://t.co/VwnXWRla

Remember when entertainers didn't fund domestic terrorists, they'd just perform? Me neither… @BarbraStreisand #BrettKimberlin #tcot

— Michael Duane Palmer (@PubliusX) May 25, 2012

I'm sure @BarbraStreisand didn't know she was funding a terrorist. Now that she knows, will she continue? http://t.co/00GWLVZ2 #tcot

— Boss Tweet (@texasbryanp) May 25, 2012

@BarbraStreisand You have the power to end your financial support for domestic terrorist #BrettKimberlin. Why won't you use it?

— f*$# strategy (@davilch) May 25, 2012

@BarbraStreisand, It is important for you to grasp the terrorism your money appears to be financing. http://t.co/78AF7f0w #BrettKimberlin

Hey #BrettKimberlin is it true you blew a guys leg off, he killed himself, and then @BARBRASTREISAND gave you a pile of cash. #Progressive

@BarbraStreisand Ever heard of "swatting" or being "swatted"? Why would you support such a thing? http://t.co/2y0eM7is #BrettKimberlin

— Noah Wehrman (@NoahWehrman) May 25, 2012

Hi @BarbraStreisand: why is your foundation giving money to a convicted domestic terrorist?

— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) May 25, 2012

https://twitter.com/ComradeCurious/status/206046548931522560

Retweet these messages, tweet messages of your own to @BarbraStreisand, and include links to the many blog posts that expose and chronicle Brett Kimberlin’s online and offline terrorism. Contact the Tides Foundation and the Heinz Foundation about their donations to Kimberlin’s groups and demand that the lapdog media report on this important story.

Make sure Streisand and other funders know where their money is going and force them to be accountable for supporting this thug.

@AoSHQ: #BrettKimberlin's frivolous lawsuits and workplace harassment can and should be stopped. http://t.co/uODzR1LF

More ideas from Ace on contacting representatives and fighting for legislative action against frivolous anti-free speech litigation.
