    Wanda Sykes shouted a series of expletives while giving the middle finger to the audience during a charity event in Boston Saturday. The comedian flipped off the crowd at Boston's TD Garden arena after she was booed for her anti-Trump comments at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser on behalf of the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care. "I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president," Sykes told the crowd according to the Boston Herald. "He's just the first confirmed one, that's it." Sykes' comments were met with loud boos, prompting...

    Comedian Wanda Sykes has meltdown on stage, swears, flips off crowd after getting booed for calling Donald Trump a 'Racist'. In a Boston comedy show last night, comedian Wanda Sykes was loudly booed by large portions of the audience near the end of her set as she referred to President-elect Donald Trump as a "racist, sexist, homophobic person."
  • Does a racial profile come to mind when you hear the word "muslim?" It does for liberals.

    When I was a child, I associated "muslim"with Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan. As a teenager, I learned that Indonesia is the world's most populous muslim nation, and that only one in five muslims are Arab. As an adult, I have tended to associate Islam with Iran, which is overwhelmingly a Caucasian nation. In short, I have no racial profile for Islam. Islam is a religion, not a race. Race-baiting liberals like Paul Ryan and the fast-failing radio talker, Charlie Sykes, insist that any scrutiny of the practitioners of Islam is racist. This reveals their immature personalities; but, even more...

    In the wake of the New York primary, there is a sense that some of the GOP elites are making their peace with the Trumpocalypse. To be sure, some of the party’s leaders are resisting Trump’s faux charm offensive, but there is also a palpable mood of defeatism among the Invertebrate. Yet in hallway chatter here, there was a growing sense of resignation about Trump as the nominee That mood is likely to spread after this week’s expected primary wins for Trump in the northeast. Some party leaders aren’t waiting. Reince Priebus is calling on anti-Trump activists to unite behind...
  • Chris Matthews: Wis. Conservative Talk Radio Hosts Like 'Million Little Mark Levins Out There!'

    You say it like it's a bad thing, Chris. On his Monday, April 4 edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews quipped that Wisconsin conservative talk radio was populated by a "billion little Mark Levins." (SNIP) They were moving toward, what, they had Walker and then they were moving toward Rubio and their guys kept dropping out. MATTHEWS: It's like all Mark, there's like a million little Mark Levins out there. GILBERT: Well, Cruz is just a vehicle, right? I mean, for, it's a strategic, tactical move that came together in Wisconsin. The anti-Trump stuff was always there.

    National Review ^ | 03.29.16 | John Fund
    Conservative talk radio in Wisconsin is different from what Donald Trump normally encounters. Hosts in Milwaukee in Madison are hardened champions of Governor Scott Walker’s reforms and don’t take kindly to Trump’s criticisms of them before Walker dropped out of the presidential race last year. “The hosts hear enough criticism about Wisconsin’s successful reforms from the left, and they’re not happy to hear distortions about them now from Donald Trump,” Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch told me last week. So Trump stepped into a buzzsaw in Wisconsin yesterday, when his campaign inexplicably allowed him to appear on several hostile talk...

  • WI:The Bizarre Neo-McCarthyite Attack On Sheriff David Clarke

    06/25/2013 6:02:17 PM PDT · by marktwain · 10 replies ^ | 25 June, 2013 | Charlie Sykes
    The local media’s disdain for Sheriff David Clarke’s pro-gun advocacy has, by now, been pretty well established.    But Journal-Sentinel reporter/columnist Dan Bice has brought an Inspector Javert-like doggedness to the anti-Clarke narrative. While ignoring much of Clarke’s substantive critique of crime, guns, and self-defense, Bice has several times now written about Clarke’s "ties" to individuals or groups who Bice clearly thinks are "fringe" extremists. This apparently includes anyone who has ever said anything nice about Clarke, given him an award, or even merely had him as a guest on a show.     Bice begins his weekend blog post this way:   "Milwaukee...

    You’ve played by the rules. Worked hard to put yourself through school. You’ve gotten a decent job and you pay your taxes. You’re faithfully paying down your mortgage and saving money in a 401(k) – all to secure your finances and your future. But now there are a lot more “takers” than “makers” in this country – and the impact is systemic and long-lasting. A prevalent new “moocher culture” is changing the character of this nation – that’s the core message of A Nation of Moochers: America’s Addiction to Getting Something for Nothing, a new book by Charles J.

    EXCLUSIVE: I hear Fox is canceling The Wanda Sykes Show Wanda Sykes after one season. The late-night talk show started off strong but tumbled in the ratings as the season went on and fell below the performance of predecessor MadTV in the Saturday 11 PM hour. Fox has options for the late-night Saturday slot. It has been actively developing sketch comedies this pilot season and ordered two pilots, one written by and starring Dana Carvey and Spike Feresten, with another, from Jamie Foxx and MadTV creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small.

    Wanda Sykes was once offered what many comics would call the fantasy job—her own nighttime talk show—but she turned it down. Between stand-up gigs, movie roles, and her part on The New Adventures of Old Christine, she was already keeping a lot of balls in the air. So what's this thing called The Wanda Sykes Show that's debuting this week? A talk show, of course. Sykes says that she changed her mind after the watershed with which we've credited just about everything short of gravity: the election of Barack Obama. "With what's going on politically, I just felt it would...

    Same-sex marriage remains illegal in most U.S. states, including the state of California where comedian and actress Wanda Sykes was "married" last October prior to the successful passage of Proposition 8. What's more, the issue is highly contentious in the District of Columbia where many religious African-American Democratic voters are upset with the city council for approving a bill to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. Yet the Washington Post seems confident that its readers will take no offense to the paper's granting the label of "wife" to the Limbaugh death-wishing comic's lover.

    RIGHT-WINGERS who've been making a big deal about Wanda Sykes' performance at the White House Correspondent's Dinner need to stop. I'm not buying all the ranting. There's no way they are as outraged as they've been acting about her remarks at the Saturday-night event. Someone needs to remind people that Sykes is a comedian. And a fairly raunchy one at that. Every year, organizers for this affair search for a smart and edgy performer to come onstage and stir the pot, as the old saying goes. And girlfriend did just that. Gave it a whole lot of elbow grease, too....

    The stand-up comedian Wanda Sykes took only seconds in her disciplined 15 minutes at the White House Correspondents' Dinner—a naughty performance that mocked both Barack Obama and Rush Limbaugh—to lay out a vision for the Republican Party. Of course, Sykes didn’t mean to help the GOP, yet in the manner of a prophet she climbed up on the mountaintop of C-SPAN at the precise moment that the glamorous tribes of Washington, New York, and Hollywood had gathered to worship, and she spoke the words that came to her as if from a special effects Yahweh. Wanda Sykes articulated a simple...
