Palin Criticism what else is new… Howard Dean… dude, Shocking: “White People Produce Many Crimes Daily” Why Do Racist People Do Such Stupid Shit? Gay Source for WikiLeaks?

Scarborough: Off Record, 'All' Republican Leaders, Talk Radio Hosts, Agree With My Palin Criticism- Newsbusters
Joe Scarborough leveling harsh criticism at Sarah Palin: not news.

Joe Scarborough claiming that—off the record—"all" conservative leaders and talk radio hosts with whom he's spoken agree with his criticism: news.

Scarborough made his astonishing claim on today's Morning Joe in the context of commenting on his latest anti-Palin piece in today's Politico. This is far from the first time that Joe has taken shots at Palin.  As I've reported, he has blamed the former Alaska governor for the GOP's failure to win the Senate, and claimed that Palin knows she can't win the presidency but is in it for the money.

Negros not happy with Sarah...

Sarah Palin’s Attack On Michelle Obama Shows Her Ignorance Of History - NewsOne for Black America

It’s appalling that Palin and too many others fail to understand that fact – indeed so many facts of American history. They don’t offer the slightest hint that they can appreciate the history of the Obama family and that in Michelle’s case, her ancestors were slaves – Jim Robinson of South Carolina, her paternal great-great grandfather, being one. Even after they were freed they were consigned to peonage, second-class citizens, forbidden to vote in much of the South, dissuaded from doing so in some of the North, relegated to separate schools, restaurants, churches, hotels, waiting rooms of train stations, the back of the bus, the other side of the tracks, the mortuary, the cemetery and, if whites could manage it, heaven itself.


It was the government that oppressed blacks, enforcing the laws that imprisoned them and hanged them for crimes grave and trivial, whipped them if they bolted for freedom and, in the Civil War, massacred them if they were captured fighting for the North. And yet if African Americans hesitate in embracing the mythical wonderfulness of America, they are accused of racism – of having the gall to know more about their own experience and history than Palin and others think they should.

FULL WAPOST ARTICLE HERE

I’m shocked that I have not gotten more grief regarding my diss of Sarah Palin (some e-mails but no biggie) but this is another example of why this woman will not be president. Although she is correct about many of the things she says about Michelle she should keep her fucking mouth shut. All of this grandstanding she is doing just pisses people off. I’m going to say again if she chooses to speak with substance and focuses on things that matter to people then folks can take her seriously. But all she has done with the book release and the high paying speaking gigs is turn herself into the political version of Paris Hilton.

Don’t get me wrong folks I don’t like Michelle and not defending her anti-American crap during the campaign but you don’t get elected to the presidency by deliberately making yourself into this polarizing figure when it is so unnecessary. Obama sucks ass as president, don’t give people a reason to be angry and resentful because black folks still like Obama no matter how screwed up a president he is and if Palin keeps running her mother on this race shit it will only motivate the Negro voting public.

Howard Dean: Bring Back the Fairness Doctrine Because Fox ‘Makes Stuff Up’ and ‘Americans Don’t Know What’s Going On’ - Newsbusters
An audio clip from about two months ago has been uncovered by The Blaze which clearly demonstrates that, even with all of his opining and public speaking skills, there is a reason that Howard Dean’s most notable quote will always remain a timelessly incoherent scream. Despite being a one-word definition of ignorance, Dean doesn’t mind discussing how to control the media in an effort to educate what he considers to be the ignorant masses – Americans.
What would he do about the media?
I would bring back the Fairness Doctrine so you couldnt have a spectacle of a Fox Flooze, which just makes stuff up and is a propaganda outlet. You would actually have to have some sanctioned human beings talking to the other side.  And MSNBC would have to do the same. They would have to have some conservatives on there too.  I think that’s much better for the country.
Howard Dean reminds me of a certain someone… when you think they are out of your life for good they find a way to re-insert themselves into the fray. It is amazing how you can have such an everlasting presence in someone’s life without even trying. Catch a clue...nobody gives a shit… you too Howard. Just sayin’

Oh this will give you racists who visit a fit :-)

Portland Mayor: “White People Produce Many Crimes Daily”
Portland — The openly gay Mayor of Portland, Oregon wrote a blog post a few days ago on racism which turned some heads. Below is an excerpt:

“I trust in Portlanders sense of fairness; that bad actions by one member of any group does not and should not be generalized or applied more widely to other members of that same group. Otherwise, as part of the biggest racial group in Portland, European-Americans, producing many crimes daily, would be in deep trouble.”
That’s Portland Mayor Sam Adams’ response to an act of arson at the Corvallis, Oregon, Salman Al-Farisi Islamic Center on Sunday. Authorities believe the fire was set in retaliation for a thwarted bombing attempt by Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, an alleged American terrorist who occasionally frequented the mosque.

New Hate Crimes Law Named For Swastika-Shaving, Branding Victim

FARMINGTON, N.M. — Three friends had just finished their shifts at a McDonald’s when prosecutors say they carried out a gruesome attack on a customer: They allegedly shaped a coat hanger into a swastika, placed it on a heated stove and branded the symbol on the arm of the mentally disabled Navajo man.

Authorities say they then shaved a swastika on the back of the 22-year-old victim’s head and used markers to scrawl messages and images on his body, including “KKK,” “White Power,” a pentagram and a graphic image of a penis.

The men have become the first in the nation to be charged under a new law that makes it easier for the federal government to prosecute people for hate crimes.

The case also marked the latest troubling race-related attack in this New Mexico community, prompting a renewed focus among local leaders on improving relations between Navajos and whites.

The defendants are accused of violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act and could face 10 years in prison if convicted. The sentences could be extended to life if the government proves kidnapping occurred.

Federal prosecutors say they were able to bring the case because the 2009 law eliminated a requirement that a victim must be engaged in a federally protected activity, such as voting or attending school, for hate crime charges to be leveled.

The law also expanded civil rights protections to include violence that is based on gender, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.

The swastika branding has also put the spotlight back on Farmington, a predominantly white community of about 45,000 residents near the Navajo Nation.

Farmington leaders signed a historic agreement earlier this month with the Navajo Nation in which both sides pledged to work toward improving race relations.

Media Ignore Gay Source for WikiLeaks - AIM


As the Senate returns to Washington to debate such matters as the Pentagon’s homosexual exclusion policy, major media coverage of the disclosure of thousands of sensitive U.S. Government cables by WikiLeaks has curiously and conveniently ignored the homosexual orientation and anti-American motivation of the alleged leaker, Pfc. Bradley Manning, now in prison.
The New York Times reported, “The possibility that a large number of diplomatic cables might become public has been discussed in government and media circles since May. That was when, in an online chat, an Army intelligence analyst, Pfc. Bradley Manning, described having downloaded from a military computer system many classified documents, including ‘260,000 State Department cables from embassies and consulates all over the world.’ In an online discussion with Adrian Lamo, a computer hacker, Private Manning said he had delivered the cables and other documents to WikiLeaks.”
This is all true. But what the Times left out of its coverage was that Manning was an open homosexual who flaunted the Pentagon’s homosexual exclusion policy without being punished for his behavior and conduct.
Similarly, The Washington Post ignored the controversial issue of Manning’s sexual orientation. It reported, “Although WikiLeaks has not disclosed the source of the materials, suspicion has centered on Pfc. Bradley Manning, 23, an Army intelligence analyst now in military custody. The military arrested Manning this year, charging him with the downloading and transfer of classified material.” This was it.
Some honest coverage came from International Business Times, which reported, “Manning is openly gay and has been active in gay rights movements.”
But how was this possible if the Pentagon had a policy against gay soldiers?

More later…
