Gosh-Darned Racist Corporate America

There we go reifying arbitrary distinctions again. If you look closely, it’s all different shades of brown.

The Audacity of Rope: Revenge Fantasies against an Uppity Black

No, I’m not going to give you a link to the web page selling that sticker: I don’t want to give it the Google juice it so desires. You can find it for sale, though, right alongside bumper stickers reading “Tea Party Militia,” “Romney: Don’t Quit on Mitt,” “Molon Labe!,” “WWJDD: What Would Jeff [...]

FBI Using Agent Provocateurs to Rile Up Anti-Semitic Movement Against Judges?

The FBI’s Operation BITE ME, as we’ve discussed in weeks past, is a newly expanded operation to engage in surveillance against American people and groups who are not suspected of any crime for purposes of “assessment”.

Within this context comes a report from the New York Times that the FBI has been encouraging agent provocateurs [...]

Stand for Marriage Maine Brings Out the Scary Black Woman for its Anti-Gay Ads

Lee Atwater is chuckling in his grave.

When Stand for Marriage Maine wanted to put out its first TV ads against same-sex marriage in Maine, it put out an audition notice looking for a nice, well-spoken white woman willing to pretend to be a teacher and read a script. I’m not kidding. Here is the [...]

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 [...]

Boehner Defends Nazis And Is Right To Do So

I wish that John Boehner and the other Republicans who are expressing outrage at the targeting of Nazi groups in the United States by the Department of Homeland Security would have expressed one fraction of the same degree of outrage when Homeland Security goons targeted peace activists and environmentalists for investigation as potential terrorists. [...]

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 [...]

Barack Obama Defends Bringing David Duke to Speak at Inauguration

At a news conference yesterday, Barack Obama defended his decision to bring White Supremacist David Duke to invoke his presidency at the Inauguration. David Duke opposed the election of this Black man as president because “Obama is not a person who would defend the rights and heritage of the European-American people.” Regardless, Barack Obama reasserted [...]

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. [...]
