  • Buffalo School Board Demanding Resignation After ‘Racist’ Remarks Made About Obamas

    12/31/2016 4:23:14 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 30 replies ^ | December 31, 2016 | Dave Jolly
    Have you ever noticed that the people who preach tolerance are the most intolerant of all? These individuals are extremely hypocritical in what they do and say and their treatment of others. Members of the LGBT community preach and push for tolerance and acceptance, but they refuse to be tolerant of those that disagree with their life style. It’s okay for homosexuals to say anything they want, no matter how derogatory it is, against straight people. Yet, whenever someone says that homosexuality is a sin, they are labeled as a homophobe and a hater. An atheist can say the most...

    A Tweet from Carl Paladino, a former candidate for New York governor and a current surrogate for Donald Trump’s campaign, appeared to suggest that the Attorney General of the United States should be lynched on Wednesday morning. “Lynch @LorettaLynch let a Grand Jury decide,” Paladino said in the Tweet, which has since been deleted.
  • Paladino: ‘Anyone interested in primary to defeat Elise Stefanik?’

    Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino is circulating a call for primary challengers to Rep. Elise Stefanik, a North Country Republican who is heading into her first re-election bid. In an email sent to supporters Wednesday, Paladino called Stefanik a “RINO Washington elitist establishment sell-out.” “Ron, we are done with Elise,” he wrote in response to an email from Ronald Deeley, a conservative activist from the western side of Stefanik’s district. “She drinks the cool aid (sic). Clearly she’s a fraud.”

    It’s easy to fall into a trap with Carl Paladino, reducing the brash developer’s intensity and inflammatory sound bites to a highlight reel of political incorrectness. But there’s more to the bomb-thrower who has upended the status quo on the Buffalo Board of Education. A fuller description paints a man who worked as a trash collector to pay for college, who lost his own son but is determined to keep thousands of other kids from being forsaken by a broken school system. Paladino is a man of contradictions – as happy to tear down the Buffalo schools superintendent as he...

    MEDIA ITE ^ | November 1, 2010
    New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino (R) walked out on a local television interview in Plattsburgh, New York on Friday evening after the anchor asked him whether his comments about Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand (D) were sexist. Paladino had called New York’s junior Senator “[Schumer's] little girl” on Thursday, in reference to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D). When asked if he regretted the comments or thought they were sexist, Paladino said, “No, I don’t. I was referring to the fact that Miss Gillbrand seems to vote exactly as Mr. Schumer directs her to. She doesn’t show any mind of her own in...

    Earlier this week, New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino (R) called Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) a “little girl” for voting similar to her colleague Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). When a reporter on Friday tried to ask him if he regrets those comments, Paladino wasn’t having any of it. “Are we going to talk issues or am I leaving you right now?” Paladino said during an interview with WCAX-TV. After the interviewer kept pushing the issue, Paladanio ripped off his earpiece and microphone and stormed off:

    NY Times ^ | October 28, 2010 | MICHAEL BARBARO and DAVID W. CHEN
    There he goes again. Carl P. Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor, promised he would be politically incorrect. He wasn’t kidding. On Thursday, during a rally in Hicksville, N.Y., he called the state’s junior United States senator, Kirsten E. Gillibrand, “Schumer’s little girl.” It was an apparent reference to Ms. Gillibrand’s close relationship with Senator Charles E. Schumer, but Mr. Paladino’s dismissive description of the only woman to hold statewide elected office in New York jolted the political world. His comments were reported on the Web site of Newsday and by NY1. Mr. Paladino, a businessman from Buffalo, has previously...

    New York Sun ^ | 10/25/10 | editorial staff
    Carl Paladino will be launching this week the final push of his campaign for governor, and The New York Sun is happy to extend its endorsement. We understand the Republican nominee is being set down as “Crazy” Carl by, among others, the same newspapers who, while saying they were for tax cuts and reform in Albany, endorsed Eliot Spitzer. Much has been made by Mr. Paladino’s opponents of emails he has sent or forwarded that contain off-color and racialist attempts at humor. They are as offensive to us as to anyone else. They remind us, however, of nothing so much...

    It's Carl again w/update from the road. I'm in NYC, Greg Edwards is in Buffalo. Event after event - lots of momentum! I just found out: Cuomo refuses to say if he gave former comptroller Alan Hevesi jail time for taking a million$$ in bribes. Law Journal wrote he cut the deal with Hevesi to get a plea last week. But Andy won't tell. Now the Law Journal changed their story online - strange. Lucky we scanned the original article: What's the deal, Andy? Voters want to know did you and Hevesi cut a another deal for no jail...

    Hofstra University will host the first gubernatorial debate between GOP candidate Carl Paladino, Democratic opponent Andrew Cuomo and five third-party candidates on Monday, Oct. 18. All seven candidates said they plan to attend, including Anti-Prohibition Party candidate Kristin Davis, Freedom Party candidate Charles Barron, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins, Libertarian Party candidate Warren Redlich and Jimmy McMillan of the Rent is too Damn High Party. The debate comes after Paladino accused Cuomo of avoiding a debate. It also comes two years after the university hosted the third and final Presidential debate in 2008. “This election is a critical one for...

    (WBEN) - While he takes his pit bull around from campaign event to campaign event, Carl Paladino's dog Duke is attracting attention-- so much so that the campaign is featuring him in an open letter advising the media to engage in more original reporting. From the Paladino campaign, here's the text of a statement released by and attributed to campaign manager Michael Caputo Thursday. Media Colleagues: The Office of Vital Statistics for the City of Buffalo alerted the Paladino family that the New York Times visited City Hall asking to see Duke's dog license.

    he New York Post has endorsed Democrat Andrew Cuomo for governor, saying it believes he has the "vision to blaze a path to reform.'' The endorsement comes hours before a seven-way debate in the contentious race to replace Gov. David Paterson in Albany. The newspaper on Monday said it based its endorsement for Cuomo "in the hope, if not necessarily the full expectation'' that Cuomo would become the strong leader that New York state needs. But the Post said it isn't clear whether anyone currently running for the state's highest office "is fully up to the task.'' It called Cuomo's...

    [...] I’ve since been told the case hasn’t yet been decided, and won’t be until after Nov. 2. Instead, the judge declined to give the WFP the injunction it sought. The party is considering an appeal. This is almost of bad as a loss, since the current policy is detrimental to the minor parties. As things stand, voters who select the same candidate on two different lines on the paper ballots used by the new voting machine system will see their vote counted for the first party that appears on the ballot. That is, of course, very bad for the...

    CUOMO: To take a greater risk on these mortgages, yes. To give families mortgages that they would not have given otherwise, yes. Q: [unintellible] … that they would not have given the loans at all? CUOMO: They would not have qualified but for this affirmative action on the part of the bank, yes. Q: Are minorities represented in that low and moderate income group? CUOMO: It is by income, and is it also by minorities? Yes. CUOMO: With the 2.1 billion, lending that amount in mortgages — which will be a higher risk, and I’m sure there will be a...

    ...At this point some people like to say something to the likes of, “What’s better for a child, being raised by a homosexual couple who are healthy, wealthy, educated and committed or by a differently-sexed couple who are crack addicted, alcoholic, adulterous, pedophiles?” Well, now; obviously the key question is that all things being equal: what is the best scenario by which to build a family and raise children? Children being raised by same-sex couples or by differently-sexed couples? Clearly, the answer is by a differently-sexed couple...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/15/2010 | Fred J. Eckert
    With just eighteen days remaining in what has been by far the most bizarre yet entertaining election for Governor of New York in memory, the Republican-Conservative candidate -- Carl Paladino, a highly successful Buffalo businessman and attorney -- has pretty much blown it by allowing himself to be cast in the role of a nutjob. Cast in the role of hero and savior is the Democratic Working Families Party (read: ACORN front) candidate, state attorney general Andrew Cuomo. It did not have to be like this. It almost wasn't. Why, pray tell, would any voter in his right mind think...

    Republican Carl Paladino, a tea party candidate for governor of New York, said Monday on NBC's "Today" show that he doesn't discriminate against homosexuals. On Sunday, in a discussion of gay marriage at a meeting with Brooklyn Hasidic Jewish leaders, Paladino said children were being "brainwashed" into accepting homosexuality as "valid."

    Republican candidate for governor Carl P. Paladino told a gathering in Williamsburg Sunday that children should not be “brainwashed” into thinking that homosexuality is acceptable, and criticized his opponent, Democrat Andrew M. Cuomo, for marching in a gay pride parade earlier this year. Addressing Orthodox Jewish leaders, in Williamsburg, Mr. Paladino described his opposition to same-sex marriage. “That’s not how God created us,” he said, reading from a prepared address. "I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into...

    Carl Paladino is a Republican in a heavily Democratic state, and he trails political scion Andrew Cuomo in polls. But his bluster and ferocity have gotten attention — and cut into Cuomo's lead. Reporting from New York Carl Paladino, a self-made multimillionaire who wants to be governor of New York, has set up shop in the lobby of a low-budget hotel in midtown Manhattan. This real estate developer from downtown Buffalo has been giving media interviews back to back since he trounced an establishment Republican last month to become the party's nominee. He is visibly exhausted, shirt rumpled, dark circles...
