Scary Black Lady Susan Rice Once Said That White Children Should Be Forced To Learn Of Blacks’ Existence

Why do the blacks have their own history? What's next, black math? Haw! Haw! Haw!In an article that proves conclusively that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice is, in fact, the scariest Black Power Radical who ever scared a white person on the internet (at least since that one terrifying door-opening man in Philadelphia on election day), the Daily Caller has a bombshell exposé that tears the lid off Rice’s involvement in writing a 1986 book that advocated a radical socialist agenda to teach black history in our nation’s schools. Even to white children!!!! Seriously, that’s in the actual headline: “Susan Rice in 1986 book: Make white students learn black history”

Sure. Go ahead and shock us, Daily Caller guy Charles C. Johnson!

In a 1986 book by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, the future diplomat argued for the aggressive inclusion of a black history curriculum in American schools, claiming that its omission had “crippling effects” by “providing a child with no more than … a white interpretation of reality.”

The 86-page book, “A History Deferred,” served as a guide for secondary and elementary school teachers wanting to teach “Black Studies,” and was published by the Black Student Fund, an advocacy group where Rice had an internship.

Oh. My. God. There is a thing called “Black Studies.” Put that inside scare quotes, so as to protect the children! What is this world coming to?

So, besides the utterly unproveable assertion that American History is usually taught from a white perspective (which it is not — it is simply taught from an American perspective), what other shocking views did the probable nominee for Secretary of State have when she was 22 years old?

  • Rice noted in her book’s foreword [that] most students were “taught American history, literature, art, drama, and music largely from a white, western European perspective. As a result, their grasp of the truth, of reality, is tainted by a myopia of sorts.”

    “American history cannot be understood fully or evaluated critically without ample study of Black history,” Rice added.

  • “Ultimately, what is more important than the white or majority perception of black Americans is the black man, woman, and child’s perception of themselves,” Rice wrote. “The greatest evil in omitting or misrepresenting Black history, literature, and culture in elementary or secondary education is the unmistakable message it sends to the black child. The message is ‘your history, your culture, your language and your literature are insignificant. And so are you.’”

Wow! 86 pages, and those are the most incendiary things Charles C. Johnson could find? It’s far less shocking and rage-filled than just about anything you might pick at random from Soul on Ice, including the punctuation.

Still, Charles C. Johnson is a guy who managed to describe as “Orwellian” a 1997 proposal that would “[permit] everyone in Illinois to obtain decent health care on a regular basis by 2002,” so there just has to be something outrageous about Rice’s writing as a student intern. Maybe there’s a way he can simultaneously suggest that Rice’s call for “Afrocentric” education — a term she apparently didn’t actually use, or god knows Johnson would have quoted it — is both unnecessary and maybe even disgustingly hypocritical?

Despite lacking an Afrocentric curriculum at the tony National Cathedral School for Girls in Washington, D.C., Rice’s options were many and impressive.

Is this Obama's terrifying plan for a US Track And Field Army?Boom! The blacks can do pretty well for themselves, can’t they? Also, how dare Susan Rice pretend to share the experience of downtrodden urban blacks (who are mostly moochers on the welfare).

We think they are kind of weird about black people over at The Daily Caller. It’s all just so strangely retro, like they’re still scared of Black Power and the rest of America is like, “Oh, hi, it is not 1968. Did you maybe miss that?”

  1. Lot_49

    Does Tucker's Daily Pot Pie exist only to be the subject of ridicule such as this?

    Signs point to yes.

    Charles C. Johnson is a guy who managed to describe as “Orwellian” a 1997 proposal that would “[permit] everyone in Illinois to obtain decent health care on a regular basis by 2002,”

    Even Orwell, who lived his whole life in socialized-medicine-polluted England, would describe this as "Orwellian." Or maybe "Obamian."

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Point of Order: Britain's NHS was instituted in 1948, and Orwell died in 1950. Needless to say, as a good old-line socialist he would not have considered it a precursor to Stalinism.

      (But he would have, if he'd lived longer under its horrors! [/teabag])

      1. Wile E. Quixote

        Point of Order: Britain however passed the National Insurance Act in 1911, which required all workers making under £160 a year were required to pay 4 pence a week into the scheme, employers were required to pay 3 pence a week and general taxation paid two pence. This is obviously an early forerunner of Obamacare and is also obviously responsible for the decline and fall of the British Empire.

        National Insurance Act of 1911

        1. Doktor Zoom

          Point of Ordure: I did not know that! Cool beans! Those Brits were in moral decline long before I thought they were, then.

    1. sbj1964

      Romney would not read that book according to Mormons black people are cursed with dark skin for being descended from evil angels.

    2. boskolives

      If they had paid me right, I'd have made up a *CliffNotes version that they could read in less time than it takes to strip mine a functional business leaving it a smoking hulk with a hole where the funds were held to cover the benefits set aside for retired or injured former workers.

      * Nothing to do with the fiscal cliff we'll all be going over, Lemming style, or that guy Cliffy at "Cheers", either, also.

    1. tessiee

      Given the reading comprehension level of these folks, they probably read it as "fun", although they would find that equally horrifying.

    1. Advn2rgirl

      But the Red Tails were our friends! I know because Pilot Exposition said "They're passing up glory to make sure we're safe!

    1. Vecchiojohn

      I hear if you read it backwards it spells out KILLWHITEYKILLWHITEYKILLWHITEYKILLWHITEY ………..

  2. Chow Yun Flat

    If students learn that history is different from history told by white people about white people, it will be the end of the world as we know it.

    Wouldn't that be a shame?

    1. ButthurtWingers2012

      Yes, pretty much…and I disagree with Doc unless he's being sarcastic by writing that history is not taught from a 'white' perspective but rather from an "American" perspective…same damn thing, Doc! That's why Custer used to be hero-worshipped, slavery was scanted (the South still thinks it was a fucking good thing for black folks while integration was terrible…) and the whole "KKK bombs, lynches and murders people" of the 1920's-64 (primarilly) was not given much thought. It's only been since American history has been revised that the "whiteness" of the old history really shows through…now we know there was for instance, black people, hispanic people and asians who actually did stuff in our country, big shock! Anyway, Susan Rice was right in her analysis and the Daily Caller constantly looks like Stormfront any time it's discussing anyone who is black and not ashamed of being black (not a black Republican in other words)

    I'm surprised that no one has blamed President Obama for creating Leap Day, February 29th, as a way of prolonging Black History Month.

    1. PugglesRule

      But he did, didn't he? He went back in his Obama Time Machine to… whenever… and did it. Because Socialist!

    2. greenloner

      They're still reeling from election shock, but never fear, by early February if not before, one of the troglodytes will come up with precisely that accusation.

    3. tessiee

      "I'm surprised that no one has blamed President Obama for creating Leap Day, February 29th, as a way of prolonging Black History Month."

      You clearly have a better grade of facebook friends than I do.

      1. OkieDokieDog

        Today I "unliked" the Waylon Jennings fan page on facebook because they decided it was a good idea for (dead) Waylon to be president. Yes, I read every one of the comments – I'm not proud to admit that… anyway the rednecks there were all on board with (still dead) Waylon being in office along with (dead) Johnny Cash and (not dead but brain & soul dead) Hank Wms Jr. & Charlie Daniels. The icing on the cake was when I read the comment from the yahoo who called the POTUS a nigger.

        1. Butch_Wagstaff

          I guess it probably blow those idiots minds if they found out how popular Johnny Cash was in Jamaica.

  4. memzilla

    Despite lacking an Afrocentric curriculum at the tony National Cathedral School for Girls…

    Don't tell him they now have the Angela Davis Chair in American Studies based in the new Jay-Z Wing.

    1. ButthurtWingers2012

      Isn't that the usual conservative racist asshollery? "you weren't born in the 'hood, so you're fake!"…just goes to show how these pasty white pricks view "acceptable black people" (poor, lazy, indifferent, ignorant and on welfare…oh how they laugh when you mention that many more white people fit that description than black folks). What really bothers me about these people (okay, one of many, many things) is how they act 'genuinely' shocked when you point out how racist they really are. I mean can we form an agreement that at some point they'll just abandon their stupid act when confronted? Especially Fucker Carlson…

          1. tessiee

            Something must have gone wrong with the magic, because he got turned into a pig, which is debatably "better" at best.

          2. vulpes82

            Really, any comparison between Newt and the noble races of Suidae and Salamandridae is an insult to the animals.

  5. YouFail4eva

    Oh my god you guys, black people actually exist? Until now, I thought they were just a scary fairy tale that Fox News told us so we would eat our Broccoli and bow to every authoritarian male figure in our lives!

    My world has been turned upside down! What do I do now that *gasp* minorities actually exist?

    1. greenloner

      I seriously doubt that Fox News would advocate eating broccoli. Sounds foreign, Eye-talian, mebbe, so: unAmerican!

        1. Rotundo_

          Fox would be more of the "pork rinds and cheetos " demographic. Vegetables are too liberal a concept for them, excepting corn and corn byproducts of course…

  6. cletar

    You know, if you are vetting somebody for a Cabinet position, and you have to go all the way back to when they were 22 to try and blow an internship all out of proportion, well, you should probably just shut up and confirm them.

    1. corthylio

      If she was radicalized 26 years ago, just think how extreme her views must be by now. After all, she lives in our Obama-worshipping bubble, too, also, amirite?

    2. SayItWithWookies

      Oh sure — you just want to never bring up the formative event in young Barack Obama's life where he ate dog meat when he was seven years old? It's like you don't even want Mitt to win this election.

    3. ButthurtWingers2012

      Exactly….and they do this lil' act time and again. What makes it funny is when it gets done back to them then they are all "oh, all the nerve!" It makes it almost worth it to sit through this banal shit so we can embarass some dumbassed wingnut 'superstar' with evidence of exorcisms (Jindal), or fucking Glen Rice and going into a racist tizzy over it (guess who) or being a bully who pinned a weaker kid down and cut his hair (RMoney…that's still the gayest thing I've heard of being done to bully a gay kid outside the usual rape…because they aren't gay and hate gay people of course). Or how Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl sometime in 1989…when is someone going to finally confront him over this?

  7. sundaytrucker

    Wait…you mean blacks weren't invented in the 80's? So how come I never saw them on TV before that?

    1. kittensdontlie

      During the 70's, they eschewed use of the auto, instead traveling by the lesser known Soul Train.

    2. Dashboard Buddha

      Oh you saw them on tv before that…like those hot summer days in Alabama where the police so kindly turned fire hoses on black people that were just melting from the heat…they also brought their dogs out to play because they thought that poor blacks couldn't afford pets of their own.

      1. tessiee

        I saw that footage when I was about six years old.
        I cried and asked my mother why those policemen were doing that.
        She explained an answer to me, but I didn't undersand it.
        I still don't.

          1. finallyhappy

            Yeah, But weren't the Huxtables a spin off of I Spy? Leaves the world of danger to get a medical degree in the area of hoohas and raise a family where one of his daughters eventually marries and divorces Lenny Kravitz

      1. Doktor Zoom

        Coach, can you help me with this math problem? I need to figure out how much 79-cent candy I need to mix with 59-cent candy to get 2 and a half pounds of candy worth….

  8. christianmuslin

    The love and affection white people of western European descent have showered on those of African ancestory in the 19th and 20th century, those of direct Japanese descent during World War II and on those of Spanish origin today is but slghtly removed from the love Nazis shared with the Jews. Hell yes it should be taught in schools to all students, and I am as western Europen white as it gets.

    If you don't know your history, you won't know when you are being lied to. Is that what you mean "Charles C. Johnson", if that is your real name. What if we don't want to join you in the comfortable "BarcaLounger of Ignorance" ? What then my friend?

    1. Rotundo_

      "BarcaLounger of Ignorance" is just so perfect: You can almost imagine a pair of them in every winger living room in front of the 55 inch plasma screen with Hannity or some other half-wit on FNC. With little american flags on the sides of the headrests with an arrow pointing downward with "I'm with Stupid" embroidered above it.

  10. NorthStarSpanx

    Palin fought back against the idea that Rice is being targeted because of her race or gender, and criticized the media for “going right along” with the Democratic narrative on what happened and ignoring a serious scandal.

    When a woman, who's national Party operatives descended into Alaska as the "Truth Squad" to white wash her creosete blackend First Dude erected fence – and used the State's communications arm to encourage citizens to incur a backlash against ethics filers says the Lamestream Media should get on her good side and investigate Rice and Benghazi to her satisfaction. . .then I don't know which part of America Michelle Obama should be proud of.

    I still have my copy of Free To Be…White and That's It, and I plan on handing it down to my kids.

      I myself have always considered myself a black man trapped in a white mans body.I love big cars,fried chicken,R&B music,and I date a lot of white women.

      1. snowpointsecret

        Are there people who actually don't like fried chicken? I've never met one that wasn't a vegetarian (and therefore, didn't hate it because of taste)

        1. MosesInvests

          Growing up in the south, I never understood why anyone thought that only black folks like fried chicken, watermelon, grits, greens etc. "Soul food"? That was just food.

    1. BartStarrland

      Best thing about that photo that not many people know – notice that one has the right glove on and the other has the left? The white Australian dude lent them his gloves.

      1. imissopus

        When the Australian died a couple of years ago, either Smith or Carlos (or maybe both) flew over there to be a pallbearer at his funeral. Lot of respect between all three of them after 1968.

        1. Negropolis

          I think Australia's government just apologized for the criticism he received back home for that move.

    2. fishwharf

      I agree. I met Tommie Smith when he was a student at San Jose State. He lived next door to my friend. The thing I remember most is how Tommie's living room was jam packed with trophies.
      Having said that, I think Susan Rice is one scary woman. It has nothing to do with her race or gender, but rather her stern demeanor and her affiliations, for example the Council on Foreign Relations.

  12. Misty Malarky

    Doesn't BIRTH OF A NATION pretty much sum up all the black history anybody needs to know?

    OK – throw in MANDINGO and FOXY BROWN, and BLACULA maybe.

  13. James Michael Curley

    “I know that sometimes people fake on each other out of genuine motives to hold onto the object of their tenderest feelings. They see themselves as so inadequate that they feel forced to wear a mask in order to continuously impress the other. I do not want to "hold" you, I want you to "stay" out of your own need for me.”
    ― Eldridge Cleaver, Soul on Ice

      1. James Michael Curley

        Decades and decades ago.  I found this a few years ago.  There is also a lot he wrote about the ‘force’ young blacks need to show to themselves to lift their self esteem and too many interpret it as meaning a showing of the gangsta.

      2. James Michael Curley

        Just noticing your user ID were you only 5 years old when I first read “Soul on Ice” in Vietnam in 1969?

      1. BadKitty904

        If they're just now discovering that blacks exist AND, to their surprise, have a history, discovering *homos* should REALLY blow their minds…so to speak…

          1. emmelemm

            Hmmm… I don't know! Perhaps you should do some Internet research on the subject.

            PS There might even be black girl homos!

          2. gullywompr

            Oh my God, could you stop being all hot and college-aged lesbian-y for like five minutes, please? Some of us old dudes have weak tickers.

          3. snowpointsecret

            Wait the hot part wasn't implied here?

            Blame John he started it! *points and runs away*

            Edit: Still, Charles C. Johnson is a guy who managed to describe as “Orwellian” a 1997 proposal that would “[permit] everyone in Illinois to obtain decent health care on a regular basis by 2002,” so there just has to be something outrageous about Rice’s writing as a student intern.

            Maybe you should move to Illinois, at least you'll have access to help if you get too worked up. Because obviously Orwell would have warned about things like this, something something… Oh forget it I can't understand wingnut logic.

          4. gullywompr

            The kind of worked up I am, Illinois can't help – my crimethink is doubleplusungood. See you in Room 101.

    1. poorgradstudent

      Well to be fair I always did think that learning about men's anal g-spot *would* be a good reason for straight guys to want to convert…

        How many Gay guys does it take to install a light bulb?Just one.But the entire staff of an Emergency Room to remove it.

        1. Butch_Wagstaff

          You got it all wrong. Gay guys would never get around to buying the damned bulb because they'd argue over what sort of "glow" they wanted.

          1. vulpes82

            Also, up-lighting is murder on wrinkles. Concealed pink bulbs are the way to go for that dewy look.

    2. glamourdammerung

      Wait 'til they find out about *homos*!!!!

      I am pretty sure they all know Tucker since it is his site.

      1. Chichikovovich

        That's the kind of ill-informed comment that results because American students are never taught American history, literature, art, drama, and music from a Canadian perspective.

    1. Isyaignert

      Kindasleezy Rice is a slam-dunk to play Cruella de Ville in a Broadway production of 101 Dalmations.

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Those terrorists seriously distorted the issues and distracted from the plight of the oppressed people of Symbionia.

  14. ManchuCandidate

    Oh the horror, learning about slavery and racism. Jeez, it might make otherwise good non mooching white people feel empathy and lead to some understanding about race relations in US Amercia.

    Next thing you'll know, Susan Rice will demand that black people be cast on TV shows. And if that continues then those uppity Latinos and Asians might feel the same way and demand to be on TV too taking away jobs from white actors like Lindsay Lohan.

  15. eggsacklywright

    I'm more concerned about her investment (around 600K) in the company building the XL pipeline. As SoS, she'd be in a position to approve it. Conflict of interest.

    1. sati_demise

      yea, this is the real problem with Rice. Libtards should demand divestment before she ican be appointed. Heard Chuck Hagel is being vetted.

    2. Not_Mother

      Looks like the Ambassador seems to be a tad bit loaded. If there is one thing I know for sure about the wingers of Nutjobistan, there is one thing they hate above all else…a liberal with money. Now, a blah lady liberal with money? QED.

      1. glasspusher

        Ms glasspusher saw Will Smith in person when he was filming a flick in SF and says he'd be A-OK for her.

  16. kittensdontlie

    What's next?? Must brown children be given their own history book, and then what about the blue ponies…?!!

  17. LesBontemps

    It’s far less shocking and rage-filled than just about anything you might pick at random from Soul on Ice,

    Or from Red State, for that matter.

    1. sbj1964

      I was 4 years old in 1968,and remember the racist riots in Daycare like it was yesterday.Wait their was no daycare schools in 1968 it was called being a mother back then.

  18. soeoho

    Does this history include the connection to her sista Condoleezza? It's true! I saw it on the internetweb thing.

  19. gullywompr

    Didn't the last president have two black Secretaries of State? Pretty sure both of them are part of black history…

    1. tessiee

      If Condi's tenure as Secretary of State bears any correlation to her musical abilities, her playing would suck, the piano would burst into flames, and everybody in the audience would catch ebola.

    6000 BC: Allah creates people in Africa. Much like Hip-Hop, it doesn't become popular until Crackers learn how to make a buck off of it.

    6000BC to 1776 AD: Nothing happens.

    1849 AD: Despite being born a slave, Harriet Tubman starts her own railroad.

    1865 AD: White people free the slaves. You're welcome.

    1896 AD: Despite being born a slave, George Washington Skippy Jiff Carver invents peanut butter.

    1897 AD: Despite being born a slave, George Washington Skippy Jiff Carver gets some of his sexual chocolate in his peanut butter. Invents the Reese's.

    1965 AD: Martin Luther King too busy dreaming about mountain tops and shit, so white people pass the Civil Rights Act. You're welcome.

    1969 AD: Tyler Perry born.

    1981 AD: Gimme a Break! premieres, fulfilling Dr. King's dream that someday black people can play maids on TV.

    2008 AD: Despite being born a slave in Kenya, Barack Pol Pot Hitler Karl Marx Obama steals Presidential election. Racism ends.

      6000BC????? The earth is 6000 years old, so that would be 4000BC. I hope God is not too offended.

        1. FeloniousMonk

          Depends who you believe. Nightfall preceding Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC according to Ussher. It's 3929 for John Lightfoot, 3761 for Jose ben Halafta, 3952 for The Venomous Bede, 3949 for Joseph Scaliger, and 3992 for Kepler. I think Nate Silver should figure out how to weight these estimates.

          1. snowpointsecret

            He came up with 4,365,122,087 BC, with a margin of error of a billion or so. The estimates were really bad, you see.

          2. FeloniousMonk

            Hey, no fair using science! That's always trumped by the gut feelings of religious figures. What else could you use the guts of a priest for?

          3. vulpes82

            Oooooooooooooh, was that some shade thrown Bede's way, or did you mistype "Venerable" to "Venomous"?

          4. glasspusher

            Wow, I'd have to trust Kepler the most out of that lot. I think his laws of planetary motion was his best work, though.

    1. gullywompr

      Yeah, somewhere in the er…Middle East… Yeah, that's the ticket, in the Middle East, NOT somewhere in Virginia…

  21. fartknocker

    Well I now know one more thing about Susan Rice and that is she clearly was not home schooled. Given the amusement of Dr. Zoom's ongoing expose' of the utter horseshit in one home schooling text book, I would prefer to have Susan Rice as the Secretary of State.

    1. finallyhappy

      nope- she went to Beauvoir and National Cathedral- meaning she was largely surrounded by rich white girls

  22. el_donaldo

    I usually like to say that the Daily Caller is written by toddlers, but even when my son was a toddler he'd come home from preschool during January and tell me about Martin Luther King, Jr.

    So …. even the 4-year-old set wouldn't be impressed by the Daily Tantrum.

  23. docterry6973

    So, who are these 'black people' and do they have a 'history'? 'Cause I got out of school long before 1986 and, therefore, got a proper American education.

    God Almighty, the Daily Caller is a rag. How does Tucker Carlson show his face in public?

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      "So, who are these 'black people' and do they have a 'history'?"

      Maybe Johnson and his crew think they just showed up one day, like the folks in "Alien Nation" or "District 9."

    2. Wile E. Quixote

      God Almighty, the Daily Caller is a rag. How does Tucker Carlson show his face in public?

      You really have to wonder. I mean here is little Little Tucker Carlson, who has all of this money and all of these advantages (and whose father was once president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, I shit you not, it's in Wikipedia). Little Tucker Carlson is the ultimate example of wingnut welfare. His stepmommy is an heiress of the Swanson food conglomerate, he goes to an exclusive private boarding school, St. George's and then to an expensive liberal arts college (Trinity College of Connecticut) and probably because he couldn't get into a state school) and then doesn't get a degree. But here's the thing, he doesn't have to! He's on the wingnut welfare plan, he gets a job at Policy Review, the Heritage Foundation's wingnut organ (heh, wingnut organ, Chet Kincaid said it first.). He then gets a job at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and then leaps to another wingnut organ, The Weakly Standard.

      Little Tucker then gets a job at CNN (the "C" in CNN really stands for "conservative") and also his own show on PBS. Little Tucker's CNN gig ends in 2005 after Jon Stewart totally pwns his ass in what has got to be one of the most famous episodes of pwnage ever. Other people who weren't on the wingnut welfare gravy train would have been fucked at this point, but not Little Tucker. Little Tucker got a job at MSNBC, and despite the fact that his show's ratings were dismal managed to last three seasons. But eventually his shit ratings on MSNBC caused him to flame out and he ended up at Faux News. But being at Faux News wasn't enough for Little T, he's an ambitious boy, he also undertook to go on a regular tour of the wingnut rubber chicken circuit and create his own news site, The Daily Caller, for people who needed a massive fix of rabid, wingnut bullshit but find Wingnut News Daily rather a bit too dèclasse.

      You have to wonder how wingnuts like Matt Drudge and Erick Erickson feel about preppies like Carlson and vice-versa. Carlson got his job as token wingnut on CNN based upon all of his family's money and media connections. Erickson put together Red State and managed to get so many batshit insane frothing wingnuts paying attention to him that someone at CNN said "Damnit, we need someone from the fetid swamps where the right-wing lumpenintelligentsia live who can appeal to the batshit insane frothing wingnut demographic but who won't shit all over the furniture like Michael Savage does. Can we get Erickson? I like the cut of his gibberish." Drudge did the same thing as Erickson, pulling himself by his bootstraps, such as they are, and built the Drudge Report into a mighty wingnut organ (heh, wingnut organ). How much respect can those guys have for someone like Little Tucker who has had everything handed to him.

      1. emmelemm

        Two important points:

        You somehow left out Tucker being on Dancing With The Stars.

        Also, "cut of his gibberish" is pure, unadulterated genius.

        1. tessiee

          "You somehow left out Tucker being on Dancing With The Stars."

          As if anyone could forget him jiggling that big fat ass.
          yes, I know. But when *I* do it, it's cute.

      2. snowpointsecret

        Wow Wonkette commenters are on their game today. Letting liars get their side, like CNN does, isn't balanced, it's stupid.

        (Is this the wrong time to make the Cirno News Network joke? Yes? Okay, I'll mention it anyway)

      3. Chet Kincaid_

        Well done. I find it peculiar that Tucker enjoys slumming in wingnuttery so much, as if he has no self-respect. Oh well, I guess he's "their" Anderson Cooper.

      4. Negropolis

        There is only one good thing Tucker ever did, and it was a very good thing and something he did by mistake: He brought us Rachel Maddow, who quickly rose to usurp him, and the rest is history

    1. carlgt1

      And then (un-ironically) Repugs are the first to screech "RACISM" if you don't agree with the "brilliance" of Thomas Sowell!

    2. Negropolis

      We could, but a lot more of us would have to huff paint and a hevulla lot of it, too, to acheive such a state of sublime insanity.

  24. natl_[redacted]_cmdr

    Oh, Daily Caller. If you weren't so earnest, you'd be adorable and hilarious. Instead you are just sad and pathetic.

  25. An_Outhouse

    "argued for the aggressive inclusion of a black history curriculum"

    The blahs are always so aggressive. Its like they were bred to pick cotton or somethin'.

  26. cletar

    Any Republican who voted to confirm Condoleeza "Mushroom Cloud" Rice should probably just shut the fuck up about who's too dumb or too wrong or says too much dumb shit on Meet The Press to be confirmed.

    1. Chichikovovich

      Naw, they want to run former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney for Kerry's seat. Their internals say he is a lock.

      1. gullywompr

        Shit man, they're now lovers of JFK and Bill Clinton (or at least were before the DNC convention). If it suits their strategery, they will switch favorites in a heartbeat (see: Romney, Mitt).

  27. flipdraw

    The first understandable motive I've read about the remarkably substance-free character assault on Susan Rice is the desire to open up a Senate seat. What a prize that would be!

      1. HouseOfTheBlueLights

        Poor choice of words, although when she was 22 (she's about my age) this was radical. Sadly, it still scares the olds.—

          1. HouseOfTheBlueLights

            This just in. Internet commentors sometimes speak from ignorance and accidentally offend instead of providing humor, as originally intended. Pax.—

      2. tessiee

        There are plenty of olds that are scared by the fact that 22 year old college students, especially blah and/or female ones, exist, although that probably says more about the olds than it does about the students.

  28. BlueStateLibel

    Yes, black history is sooo boring and inconsequential. That's why Roots was one of the most popular mini-series ever, and the book upon which it was based was a NY Times bestseller.

  29. snowpointsecret

    The Daily Caller is actually afraid that black people did things. That says everything right there.

  30. HouseOfTheBlueLights

    Also, to say "scary" and "black" in the same sentence is redundant. Black implies scary. Also.

    1. docterry6973

      Frankly, the way white people have treated black people over the past 400 years, we oughta be a little scared.

  31. weejee

    Two things speaking in Susan Rice's favor for Secretary of State is that Dana Milbank reports that she gave Vietnam Phoenix Program alum Richard Holbrooke the finger during a Bubba Clinton White House argument, and that she has openly said McWalnutz' foreign policy statements are reckless. Those actions give Dana a sad, but Dana folks frequently dropped him on his head as a young child, so take his tears with as many grains of salt as you require.

    1. Chet Kincaid_

      There is an impressive amount of bullshit and sexism in that Milbank article, along with the risible notion that we shouldn't have Rice as SoS because the Russians would be upset.

      1. kakotechnia

        It's like Milbank wakes up every morning brimming with fresh insults for women. Honey, it's not Susan Rice's fault that you were named Dana. You should take your mommy issues up with your actual mommy.

    2. Negropolis

      There hasn't been a camera, lately, that he's rejected to tell everybody that Susan Rice is "abrasive" (see: bitch). I'm so tired of his and this bullshit. He did this same thing with Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primaries. He never says this same thing about abrasive men.

    1. Doktor Zoom

      As near as we can tell, once we got IntenseDebate reconnected (? I don't know good computer wordishness), comments prior to Monday 11/26 were all restored. We were posting stories to both the old and new servers in the last week, so it looks like if anything is missing forever, it's just from the past week.

  32. TribecaMike

    Speaking of teh radical blacks, a friend of mine who is a labor historian and organizer received a career achievement award last night at SEIU's NYC headquarters (where every inch of wall space is covered with huge posters of Stalin), and I had the pleasure of chatting a bit with Harry Belafonte, who looks great for someone who's seen and lived through it all. That was a thrill and I'll never wash these ears again.

  33. SaintRond

    I followed the link to that motherfucker's article and the comments section literally ruined my morning. It made me want to drink and it's too early to drink.

  34. carlgt1

    wow, too many ways to have fun with this. First off in 1986 she was all of 22 years of age, so hardly fair to keep calling her "UN Ambassador" or act like she had/has awesome power. Plus the "History Deferred" references "A Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes which sounds like a bomb at the end – hence she's a terrorist too! All of which is why the Repugs are telling her (to paraphrase PT Barnum) "This way to the egress – negress!"

  35. poorgradstudent

    Oh, this "reasoning" again.

    You learn about gays, you might become one.
    You learn about religions other than Christianity, you might convert to one of them.
    So, I guess here the fear is…what, more whites listening to Public Enemy? Defending O.J. Simpson? Unironically watching Tyler Perry movies? (Okay, in the last case it's a pretty valid fear.)

    1. tessiee

      'Oh, this "reasoning" again.

      You learn about gays, you might become one.
      You learn about religions other than Christianity, you might convert to one of them."

      So, it's a fear of being unable to prevail against the competition?

      1. snowpointsecret

        Huh, when I learned about gays I became one too, maybe they're right!

        Oh wait, that was just puberty hitting, never mind.

      2. poorgradstudent

        Hmm, great point. Like I suggest above, gay sex does have its perks, especially if you're a guy who mistakenly believes only women have a g-spot. As for other religions, well, speaking from experience Eid al-Fitr is pretty awesome, although I did feel terribly guilty for partaking despite the whole "not fasting during Ramadan" thing.

      3. PugglesRule

        So if you have a gay friend, you might become gay. That means that if you have a blah friend, you'll become blah. Because simple LARGIC!

  36. BaldarTFlagass

    Why can't the black people be happy with the white people's recognition of the achievements of such notable black people as Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Alan Keyes, and Cowboy Troy?

    1. corthylio

      Y'all keep forgettin' t'mention my House Rep, the only black Republican Congress critter in the upcoming Congress…

        1. Butch_Wagstaff

          Heh. The only way I still remember him is because he had this awful half-hour talk show that aired at something like 12:30 am on Sunday morning on our local FOX affiliate.

  37. not that Dewey

    The Daily Caller commenters have given this issue a lot of thought:

    Dogtown • 2 days ago

    I don't want them wasting my kid's time teaching him any of that crap. Let's stick to geometry, calculus, and other things that have real world applications.

    sam • 2 days ago

    …i've seen up close what is now taught as black history …it seems every year black americans are responsible for more and more inventions, including the light bulb, computer technology, gains in biology, etc. etc.

    …when i was a boy the only invention attributed to blacks was peanut butter …(it seems it took a black man to discover that smashing a peanut created peanut butter …we dumb whites were too busy with our stupid ''industrial revolution'' to make a difference)

    stevetdc • 2 days ago

    They did invent a few good things: low-hanging trousers, turned-around hats, LOTS of prison residents, rap "music" & eubonics.

        1. Wile E. Quixote

          That would actually be really fucking awesome. Find an androgynous black singer with a set of pipes and have her belt out "Missionary Man".

          1. Wile E. Quixote

            No, no. I can't fap to Grace Jones. I couldn't even fap to Grace Jones back in the 80s when I was a teenager and Grace Jones was huge. I think it was the rumors about her hungry, razor sharp vagina dentata that did it to me.

        2. Wile E. Quixote

          Oh, by the way, have I ever told you about my fantasy of being the meat in an extremely androgynous Tilda Swinton/Annie Lennox sandwich?

          1. tessiee

            I call shenanigans; if it were truly androgynous, it would be a Tilda Swinton/David Bowie sandwich.

          2. tessiee

            What is it about Bowie, anyway? He's skinny with bad teeth and basically looks like an albino rat — and yet, somehow, he's been consistently glamourous for at least the last 40 years.
            As one of my favorite books said (not about Bowie) "feature by feature, the man's a mess. put them all together, and he's magnificent" (also true of Jimi Hendrix).

    1. snowpointsecret

      The racism in these posts are so disturbing… I'm wondering if my brother posts there, it sounds just like something he'd say x_x

    2. Wile E. Quixote

      How long before one of the commenters asks "Why is it that when I call black people 'niggers' I'm a racist? They do it to each other all the time."

    3. tessiee

      "I don't want them wasting my kid's time teaching him any of that crap. Let's stick to geometry, calculus, and other things that have real world applications."

      Anybody want to take a bet on the probability (heh!) of dogtown's offspring ever passing geometry, let alone calculus?

      1. FeloniousMonk

        A home environment where learning isn't valued is a handicap for a child. Life is full of surprises, though, so I think we should root for the kid. I'm still not taking the bet.

      2. corthylio

        Luckily, we know that the kid must be fictitious. He may have once had an online flirtation once with a fellow wingnut pretending to be a woman, but seriously?

        1. tessiee

          I'm not sure I agree.
          Stupid people almost invariably have kids, often as a direct result of being stupid.

    4. An_Outhouse

      I'd like to take a moment to thanks our darker brothers for jazz, blues, gospel, reggae, the banjo, Jimmie Hendrix, that caged bird sings lady, and beans and greens.

    5. RadioRaheem

      The best part about our nation's 44th President is that he is black. Four more years of enjoying this schadenfreude deluxe. Cringe and whine, motherfuckers, cringe and whine.

  38. Beowoof

    Shocking, shocking people should learn stuff about history at all, let alone black history. Why if the folks learned about history we couldn't run this bullshit by them anymore and we would probably have a date with Madam DeFarge.

  39. Wile E. Quixote

    You know of course that you pointing out the racism of the Daily Caller is the real racism here and that Tucker Carlson is the real victim here.

  40. Wile E. Quixote

    You know I'm looking at this article and thinking that there is no fucking way in Hell I would ever get any government job if this is the kind of thing that gets Republicans all riled up. When I was 22 years old I was posting profanity laden rants on the UW bulletin board system and Usenet, and in fact have continued to do so on and off for the last two decades.

    1. Dashboard Buddha

      When I was 22, I was temporarily arrested with other protesters outside of a GE plant. (We didn't get taken to the hoosegow, much to our disappointment. We were so pathetic the cops didn't think we were worth the bother and they let us go.)

    2. ttommyunger

      I got my security clearances during the pre-computer era. Would never fucking make it today, guaranteed. I may be on the no-fly list for all I know….or care.

  41. Temporarily_Joe

    So if calling out and/or trying to correct extant racism is Reverse Racism, and The Worst Kind of Racism, does that mean that saying that people should acknowledge the existence of black people, culture, and history is basically Reverse Genocide, the very worst kind?

    I'd go over to the Daily Caller and ask, but I'm honestly afraid of what the answer would be.

  42. tessiee

    "Daily Caller guy Charles C. Johnson"

    Who I'm now picturing in a suit, bow tie, and tightly rolled umbrella, roaming around Harlem jotting down Negro slang on his little notepad.

  43. cousinitt

    Brown Rice is just the side dish for wingers to feed on. The REAL negotiations are underway in an underground bunker deep underneath Chicago (cuz, where the hell else?). Obama will take international relations to a whole new level when HARPO Productions, Inc., puts world leaders on stage with Oprah where she can counsel and chat about the world's issues. This radical approach has been dubbed the O-O Project (for the first names of the President and Winfrey). It will debut on the OWN Network this spring and will undoubtedly boost ratings for the sagging network.

  44. BadKitty904


    1. snowpointsecret

      I'd be more depressed if I didn't know a lot of the blue counties have a ton of people and were won handily by Obama. Good thing we don't elect by land area, huh?

      1. corthylio

        Yes, that was great for Obama, but I'm thinking about the House in 2016.

        It would be nice to know about any good Dem candidates for the House that Wonketteers could support early on. These Dems who decide to run just before the filing date & then do nothing but run a few ads in late October are not likely to succeed. Early money is like yeast, right? And also non-financial support like making calls, help with web design/maintenance & social media stuff…? Wonketteers have skills & ideals- it would be nice if we could target at least one House race early enough to make a positive difference.

        Okay- back to your regular programming. Tits or GTFO, buttsechs, & also, too- libtards are the REAL racists.

          1. corthylio

            Yes, I know gerrymandering does has some effect, but I think it's possible to place too much importance on it. I think the folks who benefit most from gerrymandering are GOP incumbents. And we've seen more than one or two of those incumbents lose to wingnuts in the primaries. I live in a blue county in a red state, and I see that not all voters are voting by party- many are voting for the people they like best- or find more attractive.

          2. not that Dewey

            Greg Sargent made a similar point — that even with the pre-2010 district boundaries, most of the same incumbents would have won anyway. Even more than incumbency, though, is probably the fact that most people don't vote.

    2. Negropolis

      The map always looks like that, even when Dems are in the majority. Dems live in more densely populated areas. I thought this was common knowledge.

  45. Blueb4sinrise

    From the Eschaton Dept of FUCK YOU, YOU FUCKING FUCKS……..a chance to show some empathy for the Romneys. Ya know, or not. I skimmed most of the first page before the bile started rising. Now gonna go celebrate anew that those pigfuckers lost.

    ….Romney tends wounds in seclusion….

    1. PubOption

      The article said that Romney will divide his time between La Jolla and New Hampshire, but keep 'official residency' in Massachusetts. More republican election fraud?

      1. bobbert

        Every state I've ever lived in defined "residency" as "where you normally live most of the time". For some folks (and not just the very rich, e.g., snowbirds) this can be ambiguous, so they let you pick one.

        I've never lived in Massachusetts, so I don't know their rules, but the states I'm familiar with would frown on claiming them as your residence when you live elsewhere the great majority of the time.

      1. tessiee

        Among all the millions of other things that are wrong with Fuckface Ryan, he really has an unfortunate-looking profile. I'd like to jam a quarter between his nose and chin, and then spin it.

    2. tessiee

      So, after My Lunch With Barry, it's finally sunk in on Mitt that, for once in his life, he's actually gonna have to take No for an answer?
      Wanna bet that Ann and whats her face mrs Ryan are gonna be wearing sunglasses and long sleeves for the next week or so?

  46. tessiee

    Yo, check this out: black guys drive a car like this! (Leans back, as though one hand is on the wheel and his elbow is resting on the windowsill, and sings a tune) Do, do, chh. Do be do, do be do-be-do. (audience laughs) Yeah, but white guys, see, they drive a car like this! (Leans forward forward with both hands on the wheel) Dee-da-dee, a-dee-da-dee…

    (laughing hard) It's true, it's true! We're so lame!

  47. Negropolis

    She is trying to corrupt our precious, little snowflakes with that degenerate hippity-hop history! Won't someone think of the children? Won't anyone think of the children?!

    BTW, it's totally all right, though, to disseminate A Beka textbooks so riddled with ridiculous bullshit at to rendering it somewhere in the realm of fiction, right?

    That said, it'd be nice if education all the way around got less political.

  48. finette_

    As a university reference librarian, my favorite time of the year is when the black students taking Western Civ come in looking for books to do reports on, and it falls to me to explain why their curriculum doesn't consider Africa "western" even though it's directly south of Europe. (Hell if I know.) Likewise, this continent apparently only became "western" when white people stumbled upon it. They should just be honest and call it History of White Folks.

    1. cousinitt

      As it happens, I am a geographer by training and as I point out to my students, most of "Western" Europe lies in the "Eastern Hemisphere." Near, Middle, and Far East were likewise, spatial yardsticks based upon the view from 19th Century London and Paris. I also ask them which continent/civilization is never classified within the East vs. West spatial continuum paradigm. After some thought, many realize that Africa is that continent. Then they get it.

      And no, Africa is not western or Western even now. Only a small part lies west of the Prime Meridian and by most measures of spatio-cultural nomenclature, Africa south of the Sahara and north of South Africa is by no means western. The only thing Western about sub-Saharan Africa is how Western nations have totally screwed over the people and land to an extent rivaled only by well, all other indigenous peoples of the world.

    1. glamourdammerung

      Running is a lot of work and besides, it was simply yet another cry for attention by Erickson. It would have been hilarious when any opponents brought up his threatening to murder government workers doing their Constitutionally mandated duties though.

    2. bobbert

      Hmm. He's marginally smarter than I thought. Too bad — I was looking foreward to the primary campaign.

    3. cousinitt

      Whaddya mean chinless, Chet? Erick, son of Erick, daughter of Hamhock, cousin of Shemp does have indeed one chin, but obscured by one freaking huge jowl that creates its own gravitational field of stupid. And oh yes, his rationale for backing out is the most self-serving pile of shit I've ever had the displeasure of viewing. Well, at least since the last time I was bound and gagged and forced to read a Michelle Malkin column.

      Fucker announces his interest in running. Then said fucker thinks about it and has the utter gall to post his serious reflection as "Self-awareness matters." Right, you bloated pustule on Jesus' ass. You have about as much self-awareness as the cockroach eating the Clif power bars from my kitchen.

    4. Negropolis

      This is a guy who quit his Macon City Council job that he was elected to because it wasn't paying him enough. They weren't paying him enough for his production of bitter, right-wing invective. CNN, his radio gig, and blog do, apparently. I wonder what CNN pays Erick to be a "contributor"?

  49. schvitzatura

    Questions to posit during BHM 2013:

    Only a blah would be so crazy as to drive war elephants over the Alps, dreaming of a Black Christmas for Rome…
