  • 'Cuckservative:' Trump's Code Word Is A Study In Racism, Misogyny (Featuring Joan Walsh!)

    Crooks & Liars ^ | August 3, 2015 | Karoli Kuns
    Joan Walsh breaks down the origins of the new hot word to describe milder-mannered but no less evil conservatives than Donald Trump: Then “cuckservative” started showing up in my Twitter mentions last week, after I suggested Donald Trump supporters might not be the brightest bulbs. As I clicked around, I came to a shocking conclusion: I’ve been uncharacteristically downplaying the amount of racism and misogyny powering the right today. The spread of the epithet “cuckservative” is a sign that the crudest psycho-sexual insecurity animates the far right. “Cuckservative,” you see, is short for a cuckolded conservative. It’s not about a...

    Did you know that there are too many white people in Pittsburgh? That's what the deputy director of the Allegheny County Department of Health's Bureau of Public Policy and Community Relations told NEXTPittsburgh.com. “My two main gripes (about Pittsburgh) are: too many white people and not enough public transportation,” Abby Wilson is quoted as saying in a July 20 profile written by Gina Mazza. Ms. Wilson also cited Pittsburgh's “homogeneity and provincialism that accompany working here.” Wilson's comments were part of Ms. Mazza's profile of “four movers and shakers who have recently returned to Pittsburgh” on a site that touts...

    A year ago Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown. What has followed has been the greatest national reckoning on racism since the beating of Rodney King.On Aug. 9, one year ago, Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown after a brief scuffle in the middle of a small street in Ferguson, Missouri. There wasn’t any video of the encounter, but many bystanders and local residents saw the aftermath. For four hours, Brown’s body sat in the summer sun, slumped and face down, blood pooling in the street where he was killed. Neighbors, shocked at the violence and the police’s disrespect...
  • What Industry in the US is the Most Racist? You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

    08/02/2015 12:16:58 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 31 replies
    How would you describe an industry in which the number of blacks employed has now dropped to 1968 levels? Think about it. In 1968 democrats were still fighting to keep blacks from being equal to whites. Actually the number of blacks employed in this industry is worse than in 1968 when you take their percentage of the overall population into account. In 1968 blacks accounted for 10.9% of the population. Today they constitute 13.2% of the population. So, what industry is the most rife with racism? The media. Is this just too delicious for words or what? The same media...

    Donald Trump's presidential campaign said Sunday it fired a staffer after racially charged Facebook posts he allegedly wrote were uncovered Friday. Effective immediately, Sam Nunberg, a Trump political adviser, is "no longer associated with the Donald J. Trump for president campaign," Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski confirmed to CNN. Nunberg allegedly wrote racially charged and disparaging political posts dating back to 2007, including one calling civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton's daughter a "N—!" and another calling President Barack Obama a "Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser," Business Insider reported Friday. Nunberg is denying he wrote the posts.

    First, in the spirit of full disclosure I was apprehensive to discuss the news surrounding Donald Trump because I find little value in adding to the growing number of articles ripping him apart. I don’t think it benefits our community by taking the same exact stance, for the same exact reasons, as the rest of the world. As if there is another side to take. Plus, I don’t think any of us needed Donald to clarify his stance on immigration or tell us his definition of war hero for everyone to know he is certifiably insane So, why are you...

    Donald Trump is many things -- a demagogue and a pompous blowhard, a braggart and a race baiter -- but in the end, he's nobody's fool, except perhaps his own. Thus, his recent lauding of Sarah Palin and his hiring of her former Chief of Staff reveal that Trump's campaign for the presidency is, ultimately, more of a circus act than it is a serious endeavor for the White House. If Trump were really serious, he'd be keeping the quitter governor at bay. Trump and Palin have many things in common--and Palin has long been enamored of the Trump family's...

People in countries all over the world trip out on America. Not only do we make films the rest of the planet flocks to see — we are living in them as well. America is so larger-than-life,...

    In the fourth and most startling undercover Planned Parenthood video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) admits that about 10 percent of their second trimester babies are born “intact” before the abortion procedure is done. CMP points out that “since PPRM does not use digoxin or other feticide in its second trimester procedures, any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law (1 USC 8).” Because PPRM does not use digoxin, this would mean women who are dilated, but have not had the abortion procedure,...

While white people aren’t the only ones talking, they are involved in every conversation, and each segment has some focus on the white experience of race: a white guy who goes to a historically black college, the white teachers at a school on an Oglala Sioux reservation, white people who...

Lyons says he was ousted for blowing the whistle on on fraud and waste at the DPW. Lyons’ complaint against the DPW, which handles trash collection and enforces parking regulations in the District, includes a two page chart describing all the racial harassment black he allegedly endured from black workers — as the DPW’s director, also black, looked the other way....

In a post published on the union's official Facebook page, the students claimed that "an oppressed group cannot be racist against a dominant group (white people)." The UTM student union added the "(white people)." The student union explained that minorities can't be racist towards whites because they do not hold a position of power. Yes, minorities can hate whites because of the color of their skin, but that is not racist. That's "prejudice," according to the group. You can see the post below:

    Looking at our complex history and recognizing only its shortcoming some to believe that "white privilege" is, somehow, an explanation for a reality that is multi-faceted. “White privilege” is a term that has emerged as an energized and very youthful, civil rights movement has sought to focus attention upon what it perceives as widespread racism in American society. There is a very aggressive policing of language now under way. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was interrupted by protestors when the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said “all lives matter” at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix in mid-July.

Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were “so far inferior … that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit.” After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing “Black Codes” and “Jim Crow Laws” which...

Organizers are calling it the "Ferguson Uprising Commemoration Weekend." Plans announced Monday include a silent march starting at 11 a.m. Aug. 9 from Canfield Drive, where Michael Brown was killed, to Greater St. Mark Family Church.

Nothing could be further from the truth and such an egregious slander should not have been allowed to appear in a major daily newspaper ("Venue cancels fundraiser for officers in Gray case," July 23). It is true that Jolson, as did many of his contemporaries, performed in blackface which was originally a racist form of entertainment growing out of the minstrel shows of the 19th century....

Never mind that O’Malley and Sanders are, among presidential candidates, by far the most sympathetic to the concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement: because they’re white, they cannot be trusted, and deserve to have whatever they’re talking about shoved...

    A judge has denied the request of State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby to keep attorneys in the Freddie Case from publicizing evidence before the trial. Mosby, who is prosecuting six police officers in Gray's death, wanted a court hearing to argue for a protective order that would bar the release of any evidence — or, if the officers' attorneys agreed, to post all of it online. Mosby said she was concerned that the defense attorneys would leak only evidence that supported their clients' defense, jeopardizing the ability to conduct a fair trial.

He is solidifying his legacy before leaving office with the unprecedented gathering of information on all of us and how we live to be used in racial databases. Not only does the government already have such databases on police departments, they have created monster ones for almost every area of our lives to be used to forward “racial and economic justice” as we have never seen before as a nation. Enforced diversity is racism. Obama is already using the databases against institutions...

    Netroots Nation convened in Phoenix this weekend and it was such a target rich environment that even the Instapundit couldn’t even up. The incoming Twitter gems from Netroots 2015 were just too prolific for anyone to capture all of the good ones.As always, Netroots was concerned with all things progressive from: Bees (#BeeLivesMatter) to Racism (#BlackLivesMatterWhiteLivesNotSoMuch). Which led Martin O’Mally to apologize for his audacious assertion that “white lives matter” too.  “That was a mistake on my part.”Finally, the congregation settled on Netroot’s main theme this year: white peoples’ failure to talk enough about – what else? – race. Many...

    Crime makes people angry and distrustful. It collapses communities and fuels divisions. It also allows agitators — such as the black-lives-matter crew — to cherry-pick depredations and ignore the bigger picture: • Black teens are 4.5 times more likely to die from homicide than non-Hispanic whites, concluded a 2014 study at Northwestern University into death rates in delinquent youth. Stanley Steemer • Black Americans make up around 13 percent of the population, but committed more than half of all homicides recorded by the Bureau of Justice Statistics between 1980 and 2008. Yet the black-lives-matter mob couldn’t care less. It is...

    We’ve written quite a bit about worsening race relations in America over the past several months. As Robert Putnam recently made clear with "Our Kids”", the real threat to the fabric of American society may be the growing class divide and indeed, the post-crisis monetary policies that have served to exacerbate the disparity between the rich and everyone else have a polarizing effect, as Main Street watches helplessly while the very same bankers who took taxpayer money in 2008 become billionaires on the back of the Fed’s printing press. And while it might very well be that America’s future is...

    JULY 17--But who will care for all those Confederate flags? The North Carolina man who responded to the South Carolina church massacre by further covering his property in the rebel flag was arrested and jailed this week on a probation violation charge, records show. Edward Lee West, 69, is locked up in the Nash County jail in advance of an August 5 court appearance. Seen in the adjacent mug shot, West was collared Wednesday afternoon. According to court records, a judge issued an arrest warrant for West after he failed to show up last week for a court hearing on...

    WEST POINT, N.Y. ─ Following the decision of the South Carolina government to remove the Confederate flag from a state memorial, and the subsequent, nation-wide uproar over all things Confederate, West Point has announced that it will posthumously revoke the diplomas of all cadets who graduated from the Academy and fought for the South during the Civil War. “This sends a clear message to slave-owners and those who would fight for such a horrific cause that 150 years after most of them died we will not tolerate such atrocities on American soil,” said Lt. Col. Thomas Jackson, a spokesman for...
  • University Art Gallery Features Goggles that Show "Violence of Whiteness"

    A new series of prints by Roger Peet debuted this month at the Portland State University Littman Gallery. To get the full experience of the gallery, visitors wear "whiteness goggles." The lenses in the goggles are colored red. The pictures in the gallery are a combination of black and white photos and ones that are red. Peet claims these are different "versions of whiteness." Put on the goggles, and the red images disappear. For example, in one picture, Katy Perry is shown "culturally appropriating" Japanese culture in black and white. Behind her, in red, is a nuclear explosion, referencing the...

    Kansas City, Kansas mayor Mark Hollan bragged during a speech this week at the annual La Raza Convention that his city is no longer a majority white town. Hooray! The mayor of Kansas City, Kansas, in an address to the radical socialist organization National Council of La Raza, bragged that his city is no longer majority white and the city’s schools now have students who speak 62 different languages. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Kansas City, Kansas, was 52 percent white. But in a speech before the La Raza National Affiliates Luncheon earlier this week in Kansas City, Mayor...

    The California Legislative Black Caucus has added its voice to a call for Fort Bragg officials to rename the Mendocino Coast city, potentially breathing new life into a debate that had been largely dismissed as silly by residents and officials in the former logging town with some 7,200 residents. On Thursday, the caucus sent a letter to the city signed by eight of its 12 members. “Fort Bragg is known for its strong sense of community, natural beauty and forward vision. It is also a very diverse community, with residents of many ethnicities and nationalities. But the name Bragg comes...

    KXLY recently reported that Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Wash., is facing increased pressure to resign after a Facebook comment about the Obama family was criticized by some locals as racist. “Gorilla face Michelle,” he wrote in the now-deleted post, “can’t disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” When the backlash that followed reached city hall, five of six council members present at a recent meeting voted to ask Rushing to step down. Airway Heights Police Chief and Acting City Manager Lee Bennett explained why local leaders felt...

    You should go to an Alabama Democratic Executive Committee meeting, even if you are a Republican. No matter what anyone says, racism is not a thing of the past, and there's no better reminder -- of its existence and of its corruptive, disruptive and self-defeating influence -- than attending an SDEC [State Democratic Executive Committee] meeting. Last week Alabama Democrats gathered in Montgomery to fight the same battle they've been fighting for the last several years. Nationally, Democrats have done a good job of cobbling together many smaller constituencies into majorities, and with them winning the White House.
