Black neighbours don’t appreciate newcomer and her confederate flag

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – Annie Chambers Caddell, whose ancestors fought in the Civil War, insists theConfederate flag flying over her home is an important reminder of her heritage. But for her neigbors in this tree-shrouded, historically black neighborhood, it’s an unpleasant reminder of a by-gone era they’d rather not see every time they pass by her house.

Caddell, who is white, moved into the Brownsville neighborhood in June and began flying the flag about a month later. Since then, more than 200 residents signed a protest petition, and now neighbors plan to march Saturday along the street in front of Caddell’s house.

“My first reaction was they are going to do what they think they need to do,” said Caddell, 50. “My second reaction was I’m not going to be here.”

Caddell plans to be on nearby James Island on Saturday for the wedding of a friend who is black. She tearfully told the town council earlier this week that she is not racist.

Juan Williams Gets Axed By NPR - Just A Conservative Girl

Juan Williams was officially let go by NPR on Wednesday night due to comments he made on the O'Reilly Factor on Monday night's show. Juan and Bill were discussing the dust up on The View over his comments on Muslim terrorists.

Juan and Bill said the following:

“The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”
“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
CAIR took offense to this exchange. They told NPR to jump and they complied.

NAACP: Tea party gives 'racists' platform
The NAACP is accusing the tea party movement of providing a platform for “anti-Semites, racists and bigots.”

“The Tea Party movement has unleashed a still inchoate political movement who are in their numerical majority, angry middle-class white people who believe their country, their nation, has been taken from them,” reads the report, posted Wednesday on a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People-sponsored website, Tea Party Nationalism.

The movement is “permeated with concerns about race,” the report finds, and has “given platform to anti-Semites, racists and bigots.”

NAACP commissioned Leonard Zeskind and Devin Burghart of the Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights to write the study. The website seemed to be struggling to handle traffic was crashing frequently early Wednesday afternoon.

The report includes numerous pictures of signs at tea party rallies using racial rhetoric. It also uses maps and other data to show the growth of the movement – though one map cites Wikipedia as its source of information.

Soros-Funded Documentary Embraces Left-Wing Terrorists Who Plotted To Kill Republicans - Big Hollywood

Radical philanthropist George Soros is bankrolling a documentary that celebrates left-wing terrorists who plotted to napalm Republicans at the 2008 GOP convention in Minnesota. Even worse, you too are bankrolling the film through your taxes.

You can be sure that if right-wing terrorists were plotting to attack the Democratic National Convention, whoever foiled that conspiracy would be immortalized in film, literature and song as a savior of democracy.
