Silly Negros…NAACP and the Race Card, Democrats Old Rallying Cry – Racism, Should Black Folks Give the Tea Party a Second Look? Obama and the Race Card, Climategate and the Big Green Lie, Navy and Sexual Abuse Apparently Go Hand in Hand, Eye Shots!? WTF!?

Last gasp of a desperate NAACP: follows White House orders, plays race card to prevent even more blacks and Hispanics from joining Tea Party - Doug Ross

The NAACP was founded in 1909 to advance the cause of equality for black Americans. Over the years it defended the rights of disenfranchised voters, fought segregation, and battled southern Democrats who continually attempted to craft legislation to harm African-Americans.

That proud history, however, has been subsumed in recent years by a series of increasingly partisan decisions that emphasize victimhood and reliance on government handouts. In essence, the NAACP leadership relies upon the Democrat Party -- no matter how awful their policies are -- and vice versa. An example is its implicit tolerance of teachers' unions at the expense of charter schools that benefit poor, urban kids most.

The group's latest embarrassment involves a resolution that claimed the grass roots Tea Parties were, by and large, "racist". The assertion was so patently ludicrous that even legacy media outlets couldn't keep a straight face.

It's Official, The Democrat Rallying Cry (Excuse) for November is "Racism" - Ace - Dave In Texas

Via Newsbusters, Chrissy Matthews on Hardball with Rep. Bob Inglis, continues the "all racism, only racism, 24 hours a day" pre-electoral disaster explanation theme.



I'll repeat Winston Wolf's admonition, well, ok, I won't, but you all know what it is. Still, if we have to hear "racism" 37 times a day, repeated by every water-carrying (and bone-weary of it) member of the MFM as if new Jim Crow laws make up some 88 pages buried in the financial reform piece of crap we're fixing to eat, then I smell desperation. And fear.

Post-racial Presidency. I never knew it would be this enlightened. I only hoped.

Should Black Folks Give the Tea Party a Second Look? - The Root

Yes, the Tea Party movement is overwhelmingly white. But this writer says the black community should stop being emotional and consider the facts.

By: Sophia Nelson

As a black woman in America, I have remained largely silent about the Tea Party movement and whether the movement itself is ''racist,'' as it is being charged by many in our community, including the leadership of the NAACP.


As a community, we should take a step back for a moment and learn how to stop making emotional judgments and consider the facts about the Tea Party movement.


I think we can all agree that the Tea Party movement, as it stands today, is overwhelmingly white, working to middle class, and overwhelmingly disdainful of President Obama and his policies. My concern with the movement has always been that it was too monolithic. Sadly, when this is the case, we often cannot see the substance and value of such groups because we can easily get distracted by the fact that it is all white, all black or ''all'' something that makes a majority of us feel excluded and unwelcome. In my opinion, the biggest challenge with the Tea Party movement, like the Republican Party, is that it is 99 percent white.


If, for example, you compare the Tea Party movement to the 1963 March on Washington, you will note that a respectable number of white Americans, Jewish people and others attended that historic event and participated in sit-ins, freedom rides and marches that eventually tore down racial segregation in America. It was a multicultural and gender-neutral movement, whereas the Tea Party movement seemingly is not.


But here is my concern: Black Americans for all intents and purposes are in an economic depression right now and have been since 2007, when the housing and economic crises first started to manifest. Yet we seem to be sitting passively by as the black middle class experiences the greatest loss of wealth ever. Folks, we need to be clear, with black male unemployment at 35 percent to 50 percent in some American cities (Great Depression levels) and sisters leading heads of household at alarming rates, we need to get aggressive about a black economic-empowerment agenda that should not be dependent solely on what the government can or cannot do for us.


We have debated many times on op-ed pages around the country and on TV as pundits whether it is appropriate for us as black people to criticize the nation's first black president. My position as a journalist and commentator has always been that we should support our nation's presidents when they are correct and question them vigorously when they are not -- regardless of their color or political party affiliation.

Folks if you have not seen the video below take a moment to check it out. The very reason why Obama got elected in the first place is white guilt. Obama was not particularly smart or charismatic. He did not really have a clear and precise vision for the country. He had not done a damn thing in his past that would have suggested that somehow he was this transformative leader that could galvanize the nation. Silly ass white people were swayed by the possibility that electing this harmless looking Negro could create this post racial utopia.
Now that you all have witnessed the carnage that has resulted because you people decided to vote for this idiot based on feelings rather than common fucking sense well let’s just see if you people can be bamboozled again and shamed into feeling sorry for the bumbling president. Who cares that people are losing their jobs, the country has continued to circle down the debt drain, and billions of dollars have been wasted on this so-called stimulus pissing money away like patrons in a bar on dollar beer night.
We as one friend on mine keep repeating to me “I didn’t vote so you can’t blame me.”
I’m sure we shall se that bumper sticker on cars real soon and I’m sure there will be a lot more people at dinner parties claiming that they did not vote either.

Climategate and the Big Green Lie - The Atlantic
By Clive Crook

By way of preamble, let me remind you where I stand on climate change. I think climate science points to a risk that the world needs to take seriously. I think energy policy should be intelligently directed towards mitigating this risk. I am for a carbon tax. I also believe that the Climategate emails revealed, to an extent that surprised even me (and I am difficult to surprise), an ethos of suffocating groupthink and intellectual corruption. The scandal attracted enormous attention in the US, and support for a new energy policy has fallen. In sum, the scientists concerned brought their own discipline into disrepute, and set back the prospects for a better energy policy.

I had hoped, not very confidently, that the various Climategate inquiries would be severe. This would have been a first step towards restoring confidence in the scientific consensus. But no, the reports make things worse. At best they are mealy-mouthed apologies; at worst they are patently incompetent and even wilfully wrong. The climate-science establishment, of which these inquiries have chosen to make themselves a part, seems entirely incapable of understanding, let alone repairing, the harm it has done to its own cause.

Navy: Men Have "Duty" To Protect Women From Themselves? Really? - Villainous Company

This is so incandescently idiotic - on so many levels - that I don't even know what to say about it. Sometimes the stupid is just overpowering:

The U.S. Navy wants commanders to "feel very uncomfortable" about sexual assaults, happening at a rate of more than one a day, military officials said.

"My goal is to make every single commander that has a sexual assault occur at their command feel very uncomfortable and wonder, 'Why is this happening in my command?'" Vice Chief of Naval Operations Jonathan Greenert said in a speech in San Diego.

Gee, I don't know. Perhaps these things happen because the men and women in your command have what is euphemistically termed a "casual attitude towards sex"?

Most sexual abuse cases at the Naval Academy are not rapes, but personal encounters that have turned sour.
Generally, documents show that three factors play a role:

Alcohol abuse.
Broken relationships.
One-night stands.

In examining roughly 3,000 pages of documents obtained by The Capital under the Freedom of Information Act, it became clear that some midshipmen - male and female - can be careless about themselves, their careers and with each other. It also seems apparent that many of these young men and women - perhaps like their counterparts nationwide - have a casual attitude toward sex.

Are young people really getting high from 'eye shots'?

The people who do this, mostly college students judging by the videos, call it "vodka eyeballing." They said the pain gives way to an instant high and then a deeper state of drunkenness. "I know people who would do that," said Zach Darr of Weehawken. "They're young and stupid." Some who have tried it report an instantly deeper state of drunkenness, but at a potentially horrific cost. Doctors say anyone who tries this is turning a blind eye to many dangers. It can scar the cornea, and worse. "It's like using paint stripper on the surface of your eye," said Dr. Richard Rosen of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.

Is this a real trend?
Still doubt that this fucking society is quickly circling down the drain. I knew this generation of young folks was some of the dumbest bunch of rocks ever but Jesus is it coming to this now we can’t get high enough or drunk enough or quick enough that alcohol must now be deposited directly into our cranium via the fucking eyes!?
Folks I’m sorry but we are fucked!!

Another legitimate reason not to have children. They'll grow up to be complete morons which can reflect on how stupid their parents must be. The cure?....keep abortion legal!

You know I someone who always thought the practice of abortion was abhorrent, but you know there are some really fucked up and screwed up trailer trash and ignorant ass Negro folks and other assorted ethnic trash giving birth to children and we KNOW these children are fucked forever no matter what.
Now I’m not advocating promoting abortion but I can’t help thinking about the movie Idiocracy (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/) and frankly we are quickly heading in that direction
