Group That Mocks Native Americans Gets Public Lands From Congress

Imagine that a predominantly European-American organization set up a club in downtown Chicago in which children were taught to dress up in blackface and imitate African-Americans. Imagine that this group then asked Congress to help expand its facilities by giving it part of what had been public park. The equivalent of that is what happened yesterday, only instead of mocking African-Americans, the Boy Scouts of America are mocking Native Americans. [...]

Maine Marriage Group Solicits Actors for Anti-Gay Ad: Whites Only, Please!

This spring, Maine passed a law declaring marriage equality for same-sex and different-sex couples. This fall, Maine voters will take to the polls to respond to Ballot Resolution 1, which would make same-sex marriage illegal in the state.

We learned last week that, the group Stand for Marriage Maine has been unable to find any [...]

Barack Obama 50% White, 44% Arab and 6% Black: the Proof, Gauged

PawPaw writes to us today with helpful scientific information about Barack Obama:

He is 50% white, 44% Arab and 6% Black.

I wasn’t sure at first whether to believe PawPaw or not, because he didn’t include any documentation of this claim or any links to such documentation. Those are pretty specific numbers, too: 44% Arab, [...]

Am I Not An American?

Did those people, people like me who live without any belief in God, renounce their American citizenship by refusing to join Congressman Randy Forbes in his conspicuous public worship? [...]

Interest in Obama Birth Certificate Conspiracy? All About the Nigger Jokes. Convincing?

A couple of days ago, we wrote an article assessing claims that Barack Obama registered at Occidental College as a foreigner under the name Barry Soetoro. The single largest source of internet traffic to that article?

A website devoted to “nigger” jokes.

Oh, yeah, this “investigation” is all about the cause of freeeedom! And I’m [...]

HEART for Women Act Hides Race-Based Medicine Research Agenda

S. 422, a bill introduced by Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan earlier this month, has a companion in the House, Lois Capps‘ H.R. 1032. It takes the short title of the “HEART for Women Act of 2009,” with HEART being an acronym for “Heart Disease Education, Analysis Research, and Treatment.” Its longer title: “A bill [...]

Republicans Are Racist Against Barack Obama? Poppycock!

If I hear someone tell me “Republicans are racist” when it comes to Barack Obama one more time, I swear I’m going to scream.

I mean, come on. What’s the big deal? All that these Republicans are doing is exposing the truth about Barack Obama, and they get called “Racist”?

Republican voters are idealistic, not [...]

Whip A Nigger Today on the $3 Bill: Just a Historical Reference!

It’s not racist at all. No, really, it’s not! When the phrase “Whip A Nigger Today” appears on the $3 Bill, it is not intended to endorse racism or the re-establishment of slavery, but instead to acknowledge the nation’s heritage of slavery dating to the days of America’s founding fathers. Really. That’s all the phrase [...]

Democratic Party Sheep Begin their Bleat: Nowadays, Dissent is Bullshit

During the Bush years, we heard again and again from members of the Democratic Party that “Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism.” They were right. Mark Twain put it another way:

The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth’s political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate [...]

The Master Race Says Sorry

Schlesselman just believes that he’s the master race? Somehow, I don’t see that as a sign that he really wants to make nice. [...]

McCain Goes to Virginia, Declares Intention to Whip Barack Obama

Oh, yes he did:

“After I whip his you know what in this debate we’re going to be going out…”

The remainder of John McCain’s sentence was drowned out by the roaring applause of the audience in this Southern state.
