  • Tacoma Mayor responds to "Republicans are racist" comment

    12/06/2011 8:32:45 AM PST · by matt1234 · 43 replies ^ | Dec. 5, 2011 | David Boze
    Tacoma's Mayor Marilyn Strickland recently told students at Pacific Lutheran University that the reasons Republicans were unsuccessful in recruiting minorities was because "they are racist." When her comments leaked to the media, she said she intended to say that they were "perceived as racist."I don't buy the idea that she "intended" to say something different. But I can accept that in hindsight she wishes she had. And that's a start. At least she acknowledges that Republicans are trying to include minorities, which is more than some Democrats have been willing to say of late. And it's good that she feels...
  • Can President Obama win re-election if almost two-thirds of whites are opposed to him?

    CNN's Cafferty File ^ | November 16, 2011 | Jack Cafferty
    With just about a year to ago until Election Day, the U.S. is a racially divided nation when it comes to President Barack Obama. Consider this: A new CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows 61% of whites disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job vs. 36% who don’t – that’s almost two-to-one. For non-whites, it's almost the mirror image. Only 32% disapprove while 67% approve. For a president who was supposed to symbolize a post-racial America, this is not good news. When Obama defeated John McCain in 2008, he did it with significant support from white Americans. Exit polls showed...

    Wasserman Schultz accuses GOP of rigging elections with 'suppression laws'By Pete Kasperowicz - 11/16/11 08:43 PM ET Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) on Wednesday night said Republican governors and legislatures are purposefully pressing for the enactment of voter identification laws in order to suppress Democratic voter turnout in the 2012 election. "State legislatures are attempting to impose voting restrictions that are the modern day equivalent of poll taxes and literacy tests," she said on the House floor. "We cannot allow state legislatures to drag our nation backward in what is nothing more than a political quest to...

    The author who calls himself simply Toure -- a regular guest on MSNBC, and before that on CNN -- is throwing rhetorical bricks at Herman Cain for Time magazine. His article is headlined "Is Herman Cain the Most Unctuous Black Man Alive? Why the Hermanator experience is making me sick." Toure compared Cain to a circus clown, called him a "buffoon," compared him to "rancid, spoiled, stinky, curdled milk" and dissed him (in the liberal mind) by calling him "the Black Sarah Palin." In the midst of that, he somehow scolds Cain for "sinking to teenage-level disses." He began: This...

Now, in the aftermath of the midterm 'shellacking', a New Confederacy is rising with the assistance of the tea party and John Birchers, and it's getting enough traction in Congress to do real damage.

Jefferson, who was appointed to the post by Perry, and whose great-great-great-grandfather was a slave owned by a Waco district judge, said the reality is quite the opposite: Perry "appreciates the role diversity plays in our state and nation." Jefferson said he can recall his first conversation with Perry, in 2001, like it was yesterday. They talked about...

    WASHINGTON -- Rick Perry's presidential campaign said Sunday that his family moved quickly when they found they that the Texas hunting camp they leases was named "Niggerhead," and painted over the word on a rock next to the camp entrance. The rapid response from the Texas governor's campaign, to a newspaper report Sunday about the camp name and to criticism from his one African-American rival, was an attempt to stem any political fallout for a candidate who has struggled to regain his footing since a weak debate in Florida and a surprise loss in a straw poll there.

    “The Washington Post story revealing that Texas Governor Rick Perry hunted and hosted lawmakers at a hunting camp called Niggerhead is alarming and displays a new height in racial insensitivity in national politics. Mr. Perry should immediately fully explain how he could have gone to a ranch and hunted that is named after such an obvious racist term or he should withdrawl from the race. He is either blindly insensitive or hopelessly unaware of where he spends his time. Either way it makes one wonder if he is ready for prime time and certainly whether he is ready for the...

Republican gains among white voters are "particularly pronounced among the young and poor," according to the report. White voters under age 30 now break for Republicans by an 11-point margin; in 2008 they broke for Democrats by a seven-point margin. This could...

    The nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization declares the Tea Party “permeated with concerns about race” in a new report that is likely to reignite a feud between the two groups. The report by the NAACP, released Wednesday morning, argues that Tea Party groups “have given platform to anti-Semites, racists, and bigots,” and have attracted white nationalists looking for recruits. “The Tea Party movement has unleashed a still inchoate political movement who are in their numerical majority, angry middle class white people who believe their country, their nation, has been taken from them,” argues the report, called Tea Party...

    Three months ago in Kansas City, the NAACP first raised charges of racism within the tea party movement. Today a report is being released accusing tea party groups of providing platforms to anti-Semites and other bigots. “These groups and individuals are out there, and we ignore them at our own peril,” said NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous in a statement announcing the report. “They are speaking at tea party events, recruiting at rallies, and in some cases remain in the tea party leadership itself.”

    Boo freakin' hoo! The Louisiana Hispanic Chamber of Congress chick is mad because Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) dares to use the word "illegals" 4 times in his effective ad against an opponent (Charlie Melancon) who supported laws that help illegal aliens. Poor baby. The truth hurts. She also makes an absurd statement that "the majority of those here illegally are not even Latino". In fact, 61% are from Mexico alone. But compounding her error she goes after "blonde, blue eyed waitresses" supposedly from Eastern Europe. Uh, who's being "racist" now? Youtube Link HERE To see Sen. Vitter's great ad click...

    This seems a little...inappropriate, doesn't it? At another point, he told Democrats upset at a perceived lack of progress to think of the patience of onetime slaves. "You know, the slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs, they weren't sure when slavery would end, but they understood it was going to end," he said. Confirmed: The president has himself a new talking point. CBS' Mark Knoller tweets that he said it again: Obama says people are impatient but "now's not the time to took time to free the slaves...ultimately we'll make progress." I sincerely would like to know...

    CHAMPAIGN – The number of reports of beatings to white men in Champaign appear to be coming in quicker than police can even process them. Champaign detective Sgt. John Schweighart said police received three more reports since late Thursday night. At 10:45 p.m. Thursday, a 36-year-old man was attacked by four black males, who first asked him for a cigarette, then punched his face and knocked him to the ground. Mike Sola, 50, was attacked in the 1100 block of Crescent Drive about 9:30 p.m. Friday from behind by at least two black males as he left a high school...

    American Thinker ^ | September 22, 2010 | Thomas Lifson
    Rep. Loretta Sanchez has never distinguished herself as an intelligent woman, but now it is clear that she is an idiot. How else to explain her appearance in Spanish-language Univision TV openly race-baiting? Breitbart TV found the video:     Race-Baiting Dem Congresswoman Tells Latinos the Vietnamese Are Trying to Take Away Their Seat Does Sanchez think that because she was speaking in Spanish that she would somehow have immunity, or that nobody would notice? This kind of expression is repulsive racism. Imagine if someone said the blacks and Democrats were going to take away a seat from whites. Orange...

    © 2010 jbjdI had wanted to write an article featuring the role played by House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (D-SC) in orchestrating the race-baiting campaign that catapulted Obama post Nevada and New Hampshire away from becoming just another also-ran in the Democratic Party's primary and caucus contests; and into position to steal the nomination. If this was that article I had in mind, I would have opened with this video of Mr. Clyburn's famous annual fish fry, from April 27, 2007. Super Delegate Clyburn Endorses Obama at SC Fish Fry in April 2007 But this is not that article....
