  • Black man confesses “I used to Think Black Republicans were traitors” [VIDEO]

    The long association between the Democrats and the KKK is legendary and documented, but you won’t hear that spoken at a democratic fundraiser because they have “cooked” the books so to speak. People like Orval Faubus, George Wallace, Bull Connor and Sheriff Clark had one thing in common. They were Democrats and racist. Research those names from the 1950s and early 60s and see what you find. Research JFK and LBJ and find out that both voted against Civil Rights legislation in 1957. How about this, research the Voting and Civil Rights act of 64 and 65 and see who...

    Judicial Watch ^ | March 20, 2015
    Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin has a lot of nerve to accuse Republicans of racism for delaying President Obamas nominee for Attorney General considering hes the only sitting senator who actually opposed a candidate specifically because of race. In fact, the veteran lawmaker referred to the judicial nominee as especially dangerous for, among other things, being Latino. Additionally, Durbin has voted against several Republican presidential nominees who also happened to be ethnic minoritiesJanice Rogers Brown, an African-American on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the first African-American female Secretary of...

    Democratic candidate for governor Brett Hulsey plans to hand out white Ku Klux Klan-style hoods to Wisconsin Republicans as they gather for their annual convention Friday to highlight what he says are their racist policies. Hulsey, a state representative from Madison who is white, came into the state Capitol press room on Thursday to show off a hood he says he made with his daughters sewing machine using curtain material he purchased for $1. Its a Wisconsin Republican Party hat, Hulsey said. And people can interpret it any way they want. When asked whether he was serious, trying to be...

Mediaite, Politico, and almost no one else in the establishment press has reported that Harpootlian, speaking at a Jefferson-Jackson dinner Friday night just before Vice President Joe...

    Thanks to Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama, Ann Coulter is now the author of nine consecutive New York Times bestsellers. And if that's not some kind of record, I don't know what is. Moreover, unlike the Clintons, the erudite author has written all of her books without a team of ghost-writers. In Mugged, we learn that Republicans fight racism and Democrats fight imaginary racism after the real battles have been won. For Coulter reminds us that: Republicans opposed slavery, Democrats protected slave owners; Republicans supported anti-lynching laws, Democrats protected lynching mobs, and so on. Or basically, key...

    Top Jewish Democrats are standing squarely behind President Obama's decision not to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and warning Israel to butt out of the U.S. presidential race. The White House has been on the defensive ever since Israeli officials publicly complained last week after Obama refused to adjust his schedule to meet with Netanyahu at the United Nations General Assembly in New York later this week. Republicans quickly pounced, urging Obama to reconsider and inviting Netanyahu to meet with them at his convenience. ''I don't think it's necessary for the president to rearrange his schedule,'' Rep. Henry Waxman...

Well yesterday Daniel Burkes article in the Washington Post titled, Will Mormons racial history be a problem for Mitt Romney? tried to tarnish Romney with the brush of past discrimination in the Mormon priesthood. Burke states that Until 1978, the LDS church banned men of African descent from its priesthood. But if the actions of others in a group you belong to reflect on you then should Obama be tainted with the racial bigotry of the Democratic Party. For none other than Bull Connor was a Democrat and the history of many elected Democratic who were historically significant...

Many of these "surge" voters cast their first ballots in 2008 and then ignored pleas to turn out for gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia (or that famous Senate race in Massachusetts) and the Democrats took a licking....

Reid has apologized for remarks he made in 2008 that described Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." The comments were reported in a new...
