Democrats Haven’t Changed From Their Pre-Civil War Days

    All I can say is that when Matt Yglesias makes statements such as this, in a whiny post about the filibuster [emphasis mine]: If the framers had deemed it crucial that the Senate operate via supermajority, they could have written that into the constitution. What’s more, it’s not really clear what relevance the framers have here—they wanted an un-elected Senate, they wanted slavery, they wanted | Read More »

    Doug Wilder: Reid’s Apology Not Sufficient

    It seems that the further you get from the elites in Washington DC, who have a stake in Harry Reid remaining in power, the more likely you are to find African Americans who have a problem with Harry Reid’s comments about Barack Obama. And while I don’t agree with Doug Wilder on much, he makes a point that Reid and his defenders have attempted to | Read More »

    The Racism Double Standard

    There is a double standard when it comes to identifying who is a racist. It’s no surprise that Harry Reid (D-NV) got a pass today from every Democratic Congressional member (the CBC), Democratic supporting group (the NAACP), or race hustler Al Sharpton. The same, of course, cannot be said about Rep. Joe Wilson (D-SC) who famously yelled out “You lie” while The One was giving | Read More »

    Harry Reid and Barack Obama are not friends. They never were.

    Don’t forget this, while savoring the moment of Reid’s discomfort. It’s a side bar. Barack Obama, and his kind, have grown up knowing how white liberals think of them. It was the same in Colonial Africa, where his father grew up. In the Civil Rights south, in the 60’s, they were called “white gods and goddesses”, and even in Dr King’s day, black kids were | Read More »

    You Can’t Say That!

His sin? He was actually caught telling the truth. Gasp. Harry’s problem stems from the fact that certain truths are no longer allowed to be uttered | Read More »

    The Clowns Running The 9th Circus – UPDATE

    A 3-judge panel of the infamous 9th Circuit, the most overturned federal appellate court, has overturned a Washington state law (and any other similar laws of the other states under its jurisdiction) that disallowed felons from voting, even while still in prison. The reason? Minority disenfranchisement. Because blacks are more likely to be in prison than anyone else. Dafydd ab Hugh has a partial list | Read More »

    Unbe-freakin-lievable.

    The lame-duck British Government can’t get crushed out of existence fast enough. Israeli officials reacted angrily Thursday night to a British decision to advise retailers and importers to use labels to distinguish between West Bank produce being grown in the settlements or by Palestinians. One official charged that Britain was singling out Israel and encouraging a boycott. According to a statement released by the British | Read More »

    NBRA: HARRY REID TWISTS CIVIL RIGHTS HISTORY TO BASH GOP

    Before posting the article I received in email yesterday from the brilliant chairman of the National Black Republican Association, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, and a lawyer; Frances Rice: a follow up……. Today in The Hill J. Taylor Rushing writes: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday defended his remarks from Monday comparing congressional Republican opposition to healthcare to the 19th-century debate over slavery, | Read More »

    Senator Reid: Let’s Do the Numbers, Shall We?

    Harry Reid has stirred up controversy with his recent comments likening opponents of the health care bill with those who obstructed civil rights and women’s rights legislation: Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right. When this country | Read More »

    Jesse Jackson calls Artur Davis (D-AL) UNCLE TOM [updated]

    not so much in those exact words, of course!! But none-the-less Jackson said of Artur Davis (D-AL) “you can’t vote against Health Care and call yourself a Black man.” (story here, more) I guess Jackson has forgotten King’s (“Can’t we all just get along?” – oops, wrong King but those work too) words….

    Sins of the Founding Fathers

    Sidenote: As I post this entry, I am watching a live stream of proceedings at Continental Congress 2009, currently in session in St. Charles, IL. I have not had the time to dutifully review the content which CC2009 has so far produced. It is my understanding there will be archive video of the entire conference and many documents coming out of the event to peruse. | Read More »

    White Pride

    I’m a proud White-Irish-American and I’d like to celebrate my unique culture and heritage. Though I personally had no part in it, my white European ancestors were the ones who founded the greatest country the world has ever known. For all of you progressives out there, I’m referring to America. Yup. My white ancestors founded and conquered it. Just like countries, states and tribes have | Read More »

    Minority groups puncture the Net Neutrality balloon

    The Democrat coalition may be fracturing more visibly along abortion lines in the Obamacare debate, but that’s not the only popcorn-friendly battle going on right now. ‘Minority’ groups are going after Net Neutrality now, and nobody is sparing the ‘race card.’ The leaders of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators, National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women, The National Black Caucus of Local Elected | Read More »

    Blackface doesn’t always equal racism

    Blackface, when it is used to ridicule or denigrate is certainly racist in my view.  However, if it is used in other ways, it is not.  For example, the movie “Black like me” did a good job of causing some people to understand what it was like to be Black in America at one time and hopefully changed the views of some people to be | Read More »

    ​The Megan Williams Hoax – keeping racism alive.

    The “Reverend” Al Sharpton quick study.  You would think that after the Tawana Brawley and The Duke LaCrosse  incidents he would have learned to practice a modicum of restraint.  You might think that, but you’d be wrong.  That’s because Sharpton makes his living from gullible African-Americans and the extortion of cowardly corporations.  And he has honed his scam to a fine point – naturally, he’s | Read More »
