    HANCOCK COUNTY -- A family gathering to celebrate a child's birthday turned deadly Sunday when a fight between two brothers-in-law led to a fatal stabbing, officials said. Hancock County Sheriff's Investigator Glenn Grannan said that at 12:30 a.m., deputies found Kenneth Fanning, 29, suffering from multiple stab wounds in the front yard of a rental home on the 5000 block of U.S. 90. The suspect, Clinten Michael Dryer Sr., 32, injured his knee during the fight, Grannan said. He was treated at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport and was charged shortly before 8:30 p.m. Sunday with murder.

    Rohnert Park man sentenced in brother's 2013 crash death A Rohnert Park man who crashed his SUV, killing one of two brothers hanging on to the luggage rack, has been sentenced to four years in prison. Emmanuel Sanchez-Martinez, 27, received the punishment Monday in the July 28, 2013 crash that killed Edgar Sanchez-Martinez, 26, and injured another brother, Jose Sanchez, 29. The crash happened after Sanchez-Martinez drove off from a family dispute in a Chevy Tahoe, prosecutors said. His two brothers jumped onto the vehicle’s running boards in an attempt to stop him from leaving. Sanchez-Martinez continued to drive, reaching...

    Prosecutors won't proceed with charges in a brawl that involved several members of the Palin family, Anchorage police said Thursday. The news comes as Anchorage police released reports Thursday morning outlining witness statements in the fight. Police were called to South Anchorage regarding a brawl involving about 20 people that had broken out at Korey Klingenmeyer's house on the evening of Sept. 6. The event was a birthday party for brothers Marc and Matthew McKenna and Klingenmeyer’s son. Five police officers wrote up police reports on the scene. More than 15 witnesses were interviewed, and the statements offer conflicting information...
  • LOOK: T-shirt company replaces Redskins with Rednecks

    08/10/2014 6:44:11 PM PDT · by ConservativeStatement · 30 replies ^ | August 10, 2014 | Ryan Wilson
    San Fransico-based T-shirt company Headline Shirts has taken full advantage of the Redskins name controversy by introducing a new line of shirts based on the team logo. But instead of a Native American, a redneck, complete with raccoon tail and mullet -- is prominently featured. (No idea if this violates trademark law, but if it does, and a judge does not overturn the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's ruling canceling the Redskins' trademark registration, there's nothing the team would be able to do about it.)

    The mayor of Houston, Texas, Annise Parker, is once again attacking  'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson by calling him a “wingnut” and “completely irrelevant.” Mayor Parker is one of the few openly gay mayors in the country. Why Mayor Parker thinks anyone cares what her opinion is of the Louisiana TV star is another question, but Mayor Parker made the comments on Lone Star Q, a website that focuses on the gay scene in Texas. I have never watched ‘Duck Dynasty,’ so I don’t think about it much at all. I’ve been a gay community activist since the mid-70s. It...

    When a story hangs on like the one about Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson’s views on gays, it’s because the straight and narrow of the story is bigger than the people involved or the eye of ensuing storm . This story in particular has pulled back the curtain on the chasm between two segments of the American public: the Ducks and the Other Guys. On one side are the mighty Ducks. They’re down home people, basic, salt of the earth, grounded, physical, real people in a real world. They’re not necessarily right or left, red or blue. What distinguishes them from...

The music in this movie stinks plus lacking in originality. Also the acting is horrible beyond belief. However, what makes this movie notable is the scene starting at about the 42 minute mark.

The Boss redneck by the swimming pool orders his underling redneck, appropiately named "Crackers," to dance rock'n'roll in his bathing suit while wearing a gun slung over his shoulder.Yeah, it is funny but also VERY...

    “I ain’t trying to start no fight, but I’ll finish one every time”—so crows the country star Blake Shelton in the song that won the first-ever prize for Best Web Video at the CMT Music Awards, broadcast from Nashville this Wednesday evening. Shelton is a coward, and I’m saying that not to pick a fight with him, but to defend country music fans from his award-winning song’s assault on their freedom of individual expression. The title is “Kiss My Country Ass,” and it’s less a song than litany of cynically baiting Red State tropes and cliches. The opening lines: "Tearin’...

A $20 membership fee will get you access to retail discounts across the country, and a portion of the funds are set aside for an educational fund for “rural youth.”

In the midst of trouncing George McGovern and winning re-election with 520 electoral votes in 1972, Republican incumbent Richard Nixon won Fayette by 4,813 votes. This year, despite an almost 41,000-registration edge for Democrats in Fayette and a 10 percent margin of victory for Obama statewide, GOP nominee John McCain beat Obama by 160 votes, according to unofficial results.

John Murtha (D-Pa.), is in an unexpectedly tight race for an 18th term after effectively calling the constituents of his Southwestern Pennsylvania district racists and rednecks. Earlier this month, he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s editorial board that “There’s no question Western Pennsylvania is a racist area” in response to a question about Barack Obama’s prospects in his district. A week after apologizing, he told a local Pittsburgh TV station that “this whole area, years ago, was really redneck.” Both comments were captured on videotape, and...

These statements are made with the clear intention of tugging sympathy for the Obama candidacy as Obama is portrayed as a victim of America. If there was any honesty in this political debate, these statements would be played up as Mr. Murtha's “macaca” moment.

McCain criticized Obama as inexperienced and said the Democrat's plans on trade and the economy could plunge the country into a depression. "Sen. Obama wants to raise taxes and restrict trade.

Without accessing their inner Jeff Foxworthy, they define redneck as hardworking guys who like to hunt, fish, and maybe pop a beer or two. "I hunt squirrels, too," Spencer said, in between drags of bummed Pall Malls on Viessman's back porch. "And I like eating turtles."Spencer and Viessman comprise the sum total of the Rolla, Mo.-born-and-bred "Rednecks for Obama."

    During this US election cycle we are hearing a lot from the pundits and candidates about "heartland voters," and "white working class voters." What they are talking about are rednecks. But in their political correctness, media types cannot bring themselves to utter the word "redneck." So I'll say it for them: redneck-redneck-redneck-redneck. The fact is that we American rednecks embrace the term in a sort of proud defiance. To us, the term redneck indicates a culture we were born in and enjoy. So I find it very interesting that politically correct people have taken it upon themselves to protect us...

    The BAM Racing team that offered Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign a potential sponsorship deal in the Sprint Cup series disclosed that the Illinois senator declined the opportunity. BAM team spokesman Rhett Vandiver said that Bill Burton, an Obama campaign spokesman told him there would be no sponsorship. “The Obama campaign will not be sponsoring a car in the Sprint Cup series,” said Burton. “Sponsorship would be interpreted as an endorsement of this mindless sport and its fans.” Burton called NASCAR a “significant source of air pollution” and labeled its fans “mostly ignorant rednecks who probably tote guns everywhere they...

    In the 2000 Montana GOP Primary, I voted for Rob Natelson, a Jewish Conservative as the Candidate for Governor. In 2004, I supported the re-election of Senator Michael Crapo (R-ID), a Mormon. I supported another LDS member for Governor of Idaho in the 2006 Primary. I've worked for two Catholic Candidates for President (John Cox and Alan Keyes.) I've always looked at a person's values, not their particular faith, in choosing a candidate. This is why I'm so offended at the suggestion of Dan Gilgoff in USA Today that the reason that Mitt Romney lost is because we Evangelicals just...

    House Republicans in NASCAR-friendly districts are having fun with this one, which plays to the stereotypes. In the course of a public-health and emergency preparedness trip, Democratic homeland-security committee staffers told their aides to get immunized before a trip down South which included visits to two crowded NASCAR events in Concord, N.C., and Talladega, Ala. The immunizations included Hepatitis A and B, tetanus, diphtheria and influenza. North Carolinians grew offended. Some cried "redneck rash," especially over the Hepatitis B inclusion because the virus is rarely transmitted in the United States except through sexual contact or intravenous drug use. A shot...

    Editor's Note: Next week, we'll be celebrating National Hunting and Fishing Day across the country. To help spread the word, National Hunting & Fishing Day has had a number of notable celebrities serve as honorary chairman of NHFD. It might be that none of the prior selections have been so unabashedly about the outdoors as this year's honorary chairman, Georgia native son Jeff Foxworthy. For all his extraordinary accomplishments -- best-selling comedy recording artist of all time, Grammy nominee, popular radio show host, best-selling author, star of hit comedy tours, television series and movies, plus host of a new hit...
