Apparently panicked over ColorOfChange.org's increasingly successful efforts to hold Glenn Beck and Fox News accountable for Beck's race-baiting, right-wing websites have gone into full attack mode. At Redstate, for example, Erick Erickson defends Beck's assertion that President Obama is a "racist," claiming that "it's not a stretch to say it." Erickson goes on to call for a boycott of companies that have pulled out of Beck's show and who, according to Erickson, are "kowtowing to Barack Obama's worshippers, brownshirts, goons, and thugs." He writes:
We need to strike back and boycott these groups for ditching Beck. If they are going to fold so easily in the face of Obama brownshirts, we must push back. If not, who'll be next?
Here's the list of the groups that have boycotted Glenn Beck. Let them know you disagree. Let them know you will boycott them for kowtowing to Barack Obama's worshippers, brownshirts, goons, and thugs.

Some prominent media conservatives have harshly criticized President Obama's speech in Cairo, while others offered praise for Obama's address.
WARNING: NSFW or home or reasoned political discourse for that matter.
Can't wait to see what Red State will have to say during the confirmation hearings. Sigh.
RedState contributor "haystack" falsely claimed that Sen. John McCain had "confirmed [that] there was talking and laughing coming out of" Michael Ware's "mouth while he (McCain) was speaking" during a recent press conference in Baghdad. In fact, during McCain's appearance on The Sean Hannity Show, he stated that three other Republican members of Congress at the press conference said "there was laughter and chuckling going on." McCain did not mention "heck[ling]" or say that his colleagues attributed the purported behavior to Ware.
Ben Domenech, defending himself from charges of plagiarism, falsely claimed that one of the articles that apparently included plagiarized material "ran as inspired by [author P.J.] O'Rourke's original." There is, in fact, no mention of O'Rourke at all.
