    HuffPost, a liberal news site, was lampooned after saying Christmas classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was “seriously problematic” over claims that it features sexism and bullying. “Viewers are noticing the tale may not be so jolly after all,” the outlet’s video said. “And they’re sharing their observations online.” Among those observations was the suggestion that the TV classic was a story about racism and homophobia, while calling Santa Claus abusive and bigoted. “Yearly reminder that #Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a parable on racism & homophobia w/Santa as a bigoted exploitative prick,” read one comment shared by HuffPost. “Santa’s operation...
  • DEMOCRATS HIGHLIGHT KAMALA HARRIS’S RACE AS HER REMOVAL FROM THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE APPEARS

    Liberals are preparing for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s possible expulsion from the Senate Judiciary Committee by highlighting she is a black woman. In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red. Consequently, Harris, the most junior Democratic member of the committee, will likely be squeezed out. “Not only would it be unconscionable to remove the only African American woman from the committee, but Senator Harris also is the most...

    “What you see Trump and Rick Scott and other Republicans doing here is counting on the power of racism to serve as fact," said an Emory University professor. Most weeks the Broward County Elections Office, nestled in the Lauderhill Mall just off US 441 in Lauderhill, Florida, isn’t the kind of place that draws a crowd. But on Election Day earlier this month, as Bob Henry Sr. stood in the parking lot closest to the county office, what he saw looked like something just short of a mob. The parking lot had become a locus for the frustrated, the distrustful,...
  • Elvis Wasn’t Racist. Neither Is Giving Him the Presidential Medal of Freedom

    Even if Elvis popularized an art form that people of another race largely invented, it’s hard to argue that a lots and lots of successful black artists didn’t walk right through the doors he opened. Presley was initially a hero among black musicians in Memphis for that reason, and there’s no reason to think Elvis himself was racist. Quite the opposite, in fact. In 1956, it was reported the ‘“the rock ’n’ roll phenomenon cracked Memphis’s segregation laws” by attending the Memphis Fairgrounds amusement park “during what is designated as ‘colored night.’”Elvis’s personal reputation for being opposed to racism is...

    “Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar said in the video. “Period. Like, Tennessee is racist.” There’s no subtly there… but to ensure clarity she specifically named “white people,” before proceeding to call them stupid. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” she added

    “On the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist,” she began. “Some people saw that as emboldingly white nationalist. Now people are also saying…” Trump interrupted her, saying, “I don’t know why you’d say that — such a racist question.” She kept going. “There are some people who are saying the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of that rhetoric.” Trump replied, “Honestly? … Let me tell you, that’s a racist question.” The Washington Press Corps was floored. . . “This president said he was a nationalist … Yamiche asked a real question because there is a...

    In the wake of a racist robocall in Georgia by someone impersonating Oprah Winfrey, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said she is concerned state residents may feel like "their votes don't count." "This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia," the call said in part. The message also included a slew of racist language including references to Aunt Jemima. Both campaigns have denounced the calls, which were paid for by a group called Road to Power. "Are you concerned these racist appeals are going to work?" ABC News...

    “Today” show weatherman Al Roker is under fire for dressing up on Halloween as Doc Brown, the quirky — and white — time machine inventor in the “Back to the Future” trilogy. Some social media users asked why it was all right for him to dress up as a Caucasian character, while NBC canceled his colleague Megyn Kelly’s show after her controversial blackface comments. “I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” Roker tweeted to explain why his ‘80s-themed costume was not an example of whiteface. “I...

    RUSH: I’m gonna take you back to Monday night on CNN. Don Lemon, he of the black hole, thinking maybe a missing airliner had flown through it. Don Lemon may be one of the most mentally challenged people on television. He was talking to Fredo Cuomo, who’s on that list as well, and they were talking about recent shootings and mailed pipe bombs. Fredo said to Lemon, “There was another hate-filled criminal just last week Kentucky, another white guy in custody for shooting and killing two African-Americans at a grocery store. And we barely had time to cover it. Don...

    The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces. Lemon made that statement as Cuomo was signing off his primetime show October 29, as the pair complained about Trump’s rhetoric on illegal immigration. The liberal journalists, taking a note from their peers, tied it to the recent horrific murders at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kroger grocery store (because of course somehow everything is...

    When a vote for Trump provides a license to destroy a man’s character and credibility by any means necessary. We live in strange times. Since the election of Donald Trump, it has often seemed as if half the country has gone blind or, more likely, lost the ability to see beyond their noses. The divisions that have resulted are so deep they have split us effectively into two nations, damaging and destroying individual relationships at every level. The political left and its media blame Trump for this fracturing of the nation’s fabric, but Trump was first the target of accusations...

    The Left's morbid world of selective indignation. On Monday night, interviewer Kara Swisher asked Hillary Clinton what she thought of Cory Booker’s statement that with Republicans, “we kick them in the shins.” The former First Lady replied that it was Eric Holder who said that, not Cory Booker. Swisher apologized but then the former Secretary of State said “yeah, I know, they all look alike.” As one report noted, this “appeared to be a racist comment,” but the interview quickly moved on. On social media some contended Clinton had only been joking and nobody in the establishment media contended that...

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) said late Tuesday that he believes his Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis (Fla.), has given “too much harbor to racists and xenophobes and anti-Semites.” “He’s spoken at conferences with them,” Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, said when questioned by “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah about his opponent being dogged by allegations of racism. “He authored a book justifying slavery,” Gillum added, apparently referring to DeSantis's 2011 book, “Dreams From Our Founding Fathers: First Principles in the Age of Obama.”
  • Do white people dominate the outdoors?' MEC apologizes for using only white models

    In a surprising apology, Mountain Equipment Co-op, the Canadian outdoor apparel giant, admitted to helping advance the “vastly incorrect notion” that the outdoors is for white people only, criticizing decades worth of its own advertisements and catalogues for depending almost exclusively on white models to sell wares. “Outside is for everyone,” MEC CEO David Labistour said in an open letter Monday. “It’s time we acted like it.” The letter — titled “Do white people dominate the outdoors?” — includes a collage of old MEC ads: white people hiking and biking and rock climbing and cross-country skiing; white people in khaki...

    Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee for the governorship of Florida, is responding to the widely reported news that he has been caught lying about perks he received while in office by accusing those who have noticed the stories of racism. Per Politico, “documents turned over to the Florida Commission on Ethics” show that Gillum has misled the public in at least two ways. First, by accepting tickets to the broadway show Hamilton from an undercover FBI agent who was posing as a lobbyist, and then pretending that he believed they had been purchased by his brother. Second, by staying at...

    Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently asserted that Voter ID laws are “designed” to “intimidate” and “scare people away from the [political] process.” Lynch's perspective—which represents that of the Democratic Party as a whole—s founded on the premise that the incidence of voter fraud is extremely rare, and that initiatives like Voter ID requirements, which have been put in place in 34 states, are unnecessary and constitute a form of vote suppression. A related argument holds that some demographic subgroups of the U.S. population—particularly nonwhite and low-income people—are considerably less likely to hold government-issued forms of identification than are their...

    President Donald Trump’s loyalists here at Florida’s premier retirement community fear Andrew Gillum. It has nothing to do with his race, they insist, when asked about the 39-year-old Democrat who could become the state’s first African-American governor. Instead, The Villages’ deeply conservative residents are convinced a Gillum victory would trigger an era of high crime, higher taxes and moral failing. “He’ll kill everything that’s good about Florida,” says Talmadge Strickland, a 66-year-old retired firefighter wearing a “Trump 2020″ baseball cap at a rally for Gillum’s opponent. “He will hurt us; he will physically hurt us with his socialist mentality.” In...
