Study: White People, You’re Racist

Scene from several documentaries by Dinesh D'Souza
Here’s some fascinating Social Science Facts for your consideration! A University of Delaware study found that 67% of whites supported voter ID laws — but that support jumped to 73% when the question was accompanied by a photograph of African Americans voting (it was the same 67% when the question had no photo or a photo of whites voting). In a press release, researcher David C. Wilson of the Center for Political Communication said, Read more on Study: White People, You’re Racist…

Communists At The Atlantic Blame America First

One of us! One of us! We never thought we’d see the day, but the Atlantic, fresh off a story kind of blaming workers for killing a company already in bankruptcy, has published a piece decrying the unfair distribution of American riches and arguing that Job Creators should maybe cough up some tip money so Olds can see the doctor here and there. This piece has been published just in time, because you may refer to it when you inevitably get into an argument about politics tomorrow with a loved one who wants Waitress Moms to sling hash until the age of 70 because “Americans are living longer” and “we can’t afford it” and whatnot. But au contraire, we CAN afford it and also, welcome to the Liberal Elite, Atlantic, and also, some thoughts on why entitlements might be suddenly in need of “reform”… Read more on Communists At The Atlantic Blame America First…

Classy Wrasslin’ Two-Time-Loser Lady Linda McMahon Stiffs Staff, Invites It To Screw Itself

Hmmm, it looks like your Wonkette didn’t bother to write even the littlest thing about two-time-Senate-loser and Wrasslin’ Lady Linda McMahon this time around, probably because we had used up all our folding-chair jokes the first time around, and also probably because we didn’t care. But in fact, it is AFTER her (second) loss that Linda McMahon has become interesting! And how has she done that? Well, once she’d blown $100 million of her own money on her two (losing) campaigns, it seems she didn’t have enough left over to pay the uniformly low-income and African American folks who had been her (low-wage) fake-supporters, so they just waited and waited. But then they told the press “hey this rich lady isn’t bothering to pay us!” So THEN they got checks with a condom in the envelope, so’s they could fuck themselves! AND THEN THE CHECKS BOUNCED ANYWAY. Oh man. Read more on Classy Wrasslin’ Two-Time-Loser Lady Linda McMahon Stiffs Staff, Invites It To Screw Itself…

Maine GOP Chair: I See Black People

DId you know only about 1 percent of Mainers are of the African American variety of American? Did you know that adds up (every little bit counts!) to about 15,000 or so black Mainers? Well Maine GOP chair Charlie Webster apparently did not know that, because, as he told NBC, a whole bunch of black people showed up to vote on Election Day — dozens and dozens of them! — but Charlie Webster and his friends don’t know anyone who’s black! He’s not saying they vote frauded Maine … he is just sayin’. Read more on Maine GOP Chair: I See Black People…

Exciting New Ohio Ad: Republicans Are The Ones Who Love You, Black Dummies!

This ad, playing in Ohio, rests its case! Barack Obama will not bring you wealth and prosperity (except for how he will totally mandate reparations, but shhhh), and Lincoln freed the slaves. That one guy, the one talking before the stock photo couple, he is totally convincing with his Mormonish “revelations.” (Sorry we are reading Krakauer’s Under the Banner of Heaven right now, about the polygamous Mormon fundies, and it is alllll about revelations … to KILL!)

WND: Blacks Lazy, Shiftless, ‘Should Be More Like Jews’

The proper response to the WND story “Blacks Should Be More Like Jews,” by Aliza Davidovit, is “uhhhhh.” It starts with a roll call of successful people of Jewishness, and then explains that they did it by getting up earlier and working harder than everyone else, not by being on food stamps and welfare like some people. But it’s not just welfare queens and young bucks who have ruined a perfectly good black experience in this country, like we used to have in the 1950s: it’s also teachers unions and Barack Obama, who decimated the black middle class by axing all those government jobs! Oh, Davidovit didn’t note that part? Weird! Read more on WND: Blacks Lazy, Shiftless, ‘Should Be More Like Jews’…

What Part of ‘Religious Freedom To Hold Whites-Only Bible Study’ Don’t You Understand, Alabama?

Hey Winfield, Alabama, why you so mad at this pastor, Rev. William Collier, who just wants to hold whites-only conference for whites-only pastors, because of religious liberty, and because he doesn’t have the “facilities” to accomodate other races? (Quick: what “facilities” might he need? Slave quarters? A jail cell? A chicken deep-fryer? A kosher kitchen? Definitely a kosher kitchen.) What part of “religious liberty” don’t you get, is what Rev. Collier and his whites-only brethren want to know!

That Joe the Plumber Idiot Has A Black Friend Now

Dung-pile peasant turned right-wing avatar Sam Wurzelbacher, who likes to pretend his name is Joe and also likes to pretend he is a plumber, has a black friend! She’s really likes Sam the Unemployable Guy Who Pretended To Be A Plumber and she’s also a big fan of President Obama. Probably, because she’s a black! That’s what makes her friendship with Sam so remarkable. Sam’s black friend is named “Mother Georgia,” which doesn’t sound like an actual name so much as one of those condescending nicknames white people gave to their African-American nannies in movies featuring Emma Stone. But let’s take Sam, who pretends his name is Joe, at his word that Mother Georgia’s real name is actually Mother Georgia. Read more on That Joe the Plumber Idiot Has A Black Friend Now…

Ungrateful West Philly African Americans Inhospitable To Poor Mitt Romney

All poor Mitt Romney wanted to do was show some “compassion” to a group of African American schoolchildren in West Philly and explain to them that they are only poor because their mothers are sluts and their fathers are deadbeats, and what kind of thanks did he get? No thanks, that’s what kind! Seeking to broaden his appeal heading into the general election, Romney was venturing for his first time in this campaign into an impoverished black neighborhood to hear the concerns of local educators and community leaders. But here in the streets of West Philadelphia, the emotion surrounding his contest with the nation’s first black president was raw, as dozens of neighborhood residents shouted, “Get out, Romney, get out!” Well I say, old chaps, that is not the kind of welcome His Lord High Hairgel was expecting! So Romney is at this charter school, and trying to brag on his education record in Taxachusetts and he gets just cold interrupted and given a total lecture from the charter school’s founder about how in Boston when they tried to integrate, little black children were pelted with eggs. He answered, presumably, “Errrrrrrrr.” Then he talked some total bullshit about how class size doesn’t matter, and everybody in the room jumped down his throat and yelled GIVE ME SOME MORE ICE TEA, M-FER! (Maybe.) Read more on Ungrateful West Philly African Americans Inhospitable To Poor Mitt Romney…

Fox News Sued For Being Racistly Abusive To Employee

Fox News is a place where you get promoted and given more air time for saying hateful stuff, so it’s not surprising that NPR would fire Juan Williams for doing this on that channel or, say, a black employee would sue the company for people doing this around him. That latter thing has also happened, it turns out. Harmeen Jones is an erstwhile Fox News technician and a continuing black man who says he faced “a daily barrage of offensive remarks about blacks, Arabs, Muslims, Hispanics, women, and Jews.” His specific accusations against his fellow employees are rather interesting.

Can Black Female Reporters Deliver The Hard-Hitting East Wing Reportage Americans Crave?

Throughout the history of American journalism, reporters have upheld one vital standard: asking the tough questions and holding to account the most powerful person in the nation, which is to say, the First Lady. But is our national legacy of unbiased investigative East Wing reporting suddenly in peril because some black gals are writing about Michelle Obama?

Michael Steele To Reinvent GOP With Hip-Hop And Youthiness

GOP Chairman Michael Steele is proving to be pretty goddamn tiresome already and he has been running the party for what, minus five minutes? After explaining to George Stephanopoulos how “jobs” are different from “work,” he then gave this big long interview with the Washington Times that was likewise so jam-packed with mockable bullshit that it is hard to see what a person with a satirical blog-writing “job” is supposed to do with it.

Oprah Winfrey Too Busy To Campaign With Obama

Just a few months ago, Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey were such great friends that rumors flew about their torrid lesbian affair. But now that Barack needs Oprah to reel in the votes of bitter Indiana housewives, Oprah’s suddenly so busy that, according to one media analyst, “it might be easier to rearrange George Bush’s schedule than Oprah Winfrey’s schedule.” Is Oprah really busier than America’s laziest president, or are more sinister forces at play?

Barack Obama To Change Electoral Math By Courting Youths, African-Americans, Everybody Else

Every four years Democrats say they’re going to win elections by getting more young ‘uns and black people to vote, and every four years George Bush gets elected again. But this time will be different, says Barack Obama, because he is getting “folks” to register to vote and he will kick their asses if they don’t.
