    Why do antiwar contributions go to Mumia Abu-Jamal’s defenders? two-page advertisement against war in Iraq that appeared in Monday's New York Times directed donors to send money to a foundation that for years has been devoted to the defense of convicted murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal. The ad, which features an antiwar statement signed by more than 100 well-known Americans, including the actors Ed Asner, Martin Sheen, and Susan Sarandon, writers Kurt Vonnegut, Alice Walker, and Barbara Kingsolver, and musicians Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, and Pete Seeger, was created by the group Not In Our Name, which has purchased similar ads in...

    Not only is Fox News Contributor Marc Lamont Hill an admirer of convicted cop killer and radical Icon Mumia Abu-Jamal, he's also his publisher. AIM's Cliff Kincaid discovered that Abu-Jamal has been promoted on Hill's now-deleted myspace site; but it goes even further. For two years, I read Hill's blog daily. His views are indeed radical. He frequently praised Castro and Khallid Muhammed, along with other criminals and dictators. Here's Abu-Jamal's warm introduction by Hill: "I am thrilled to announce that Mumia Abu-Jamal has joined the Barbershop as a weekly contributor!! His column, 'Live from Death Row', will appear every...

    In what's been referred to as a black hat and bearded version of Mumia Abu-Jamal and Bobby Sands political prisoner movements, Old Order Amish activists are rallying behind Andy Swartzentruber, who is facing persecution from Pennsylvania's extreme sanitation police.Swartzentruber was asked by the sewage enforcers not to deposit human sewage near his home and farm.Proper human waste disposal, according to Jacob Crapzengruber, chairman of the Free-eth Swartzentruber Committee Agin' Sewage Imperialism and Poop Hubris, is contrary to the Old Amish sect's strict religious practice of self-denial and annoying neighbors.

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- The Rev. Al Sharpton said Wednesday he refused to accept an apology from actor Michael Richards, who spouted a racist rant at a comedy club last week. But Sharpton said he did agree to meet with Richards to try to start a process to address racism in America. "I [told Richards] you need to sit down and deal with this," Sharpton told CNN. "This is not about accepting an apology, this is about starting a process to really deal with the continual problem of racism in this country." (Watch Richards' meltdown on stage -- 1:39 )...

    Paris suburb names street for cop-killer Abu-Jamal By Jennifer Lin Inquirer Staff Writer As Philadelphians cope with another police slaying, news comes that a suburb of Paris has named a street for Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of the 1981 murder of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Hundreds of supporters of Abu-Jamal attended a ceremony on April 29 to dedicate the Rue Mumia-Abu Jamal in the city of St.-Denis. "In France, they see him as a towering figure," said Suzanne Ross, cochair of the Free Mumia Coalition of New York City, who was part of the ceremony. Ross said the street is in...

    Anarchist-run Wooden Shoe Books (508 S. 5th) has been a place where one could buy pro-Mumia Abu Jamal shirts and other anti-police merchandise. But when the store was held up on the afternoon of Oct. 7 by a man who claimed he had a gun, guess who was called to help? According to the Philadelphia Police Department's report, an assailant flashed a bulge in his belt to a female clerk and demanded the store's money. She gave him about $200 in cash, and $40 worth of SEPTA tokens. When we asked about the irony of an anti-police organization calling the...
  • CA: House rejects naming post office after Berkeley activist

    WASHINGTON - House Republicans on Tuesday rejected a Democratic resolution to name a post office in Berkeley, Calif., after a longtime local activist and city councilwoman, saying 94-year-old Maudelle Shirek doesn't represent American values. The 215-190 vote was an unusual refusal of an honor that's normally routine. House rules allow lawmakers to propose renaming post offices in their district, and fellow lawmakers usually agree without debate. But Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who led the opposition, said Shirek's background "sets her apart from, I will say, the most consistent of American values." King gave no details in a speech on the...

    Weve all seen and heard of a place called Free Republic, its full of divorced or wife-beating conservative slobs who have the hygene of John Goodman after a long picnic. They thrive on stupid,worthless topics that focus around the "wonder of life" and "lets keep people who cant feel or think alive because were to stubborn to admit that its pretty damn foolish". But above all other abominations in this world is the wretched "Admin Mod", a man of horrible values and the judgement of a meth lab. It is he who makes free republic, well not free at all,...

    "Charitable" Foundations: ATMs for the Left "Charitable" Foundations: ATMs for the Left By Ben Johnson FrontPageMagazine.com | March 2, 2004 One of the unlamented developments of this election year is the Democratic Party’s retreat to the Left. Although the media claim the party's voters have learned their lesson by settling for the “electable” John F. Kerry, a cursory examination of the Democrats shows they remain animated by anti-Bush furor. The party rank-and-file may have decided they prefer the sing-song cadences of John Kerry or the charming drawl of John Edwards to the red-faced shrieks of Howard Dean, but the message...

    How do you know if you're a Democrat? If you've ever met someone down on his or her luck, and you wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever seen the look in a child's eyes of fear, of hunger, or of aspiration, and wanted to help, then you're a Democrat. If you have ever wanted leadership that had common sense, that cared about the future, and that wanted progress over partisanship, then you're a Democrat. If you believe that we are better off working together than apart, then you're a Democrat. If you believe in community,...
