Yesterday, you may have noticed that it was a key date in the history of American civil rights. On June 19, 1964, the Senate passed the Civil Rights Act, which Lyndon B. Johnson would sign two weeks later on July 2. But after this year, no one will remember anything about that stupid old Civil […]

Guns. Hot damn, if we all don’t want bigger, badder, better guns! Pew! Pew! Pew! America, Fuck Yeah, Second Amendment, NRA, freedoms, and all that jazz! Am I right! And if we occasionally need to feed the Tree Of Liberty with the blood of dozens of schoolchildren, then so be it, because GUNS ARE TEH […]

Heritage is very very important to some people. No matter how disgraceful their ancestors may be, we all know those Germans Southerners who fly the Nazi Confederate flag in honor of long-dead grand-pappys who fought for the Third Reich Confederacy. And we all know that those folks don’t hate any particular people, but are just […]

You know who is the greatest friend The Blacks ever had? We mean besides Donald Trump. It is awesome rock & roller and Republican Minority Outreach Specialist Ted Nugent! He is always talking about how he is not racist because he loves Motown and some other “reasons” probably too, oh, we remember one, he is […]

So there has been a late August GOP whineathon about how liberals were co-opting noted Republican Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. by pretending he was some sort of liberal like them, when everyone knows Martin Luther King believed in the free market and race-blindness, because Republicans are the real not-racists. Then they were all waah […]

[Update, 4:30 p.m.: Now that the live stream is over, we've added in the last few speakers from the hours-long event: John Lewis, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Martin Luther King III, Christine King Farris, Bernice King, and President Barack Obama.] We are just going to jump in and start liveblogging the anniversary of the 1963 […]

We’ve seen a lot of racist nonsense in our time, but this contribution from the Daily Caller and Major General US Army Jerry Curry Retired Thank Goodness is truly special, a diamond-encrusted nuclear butt plug of are-you-even-serious-dude that makes us wonder if Jerry Curry, who served semi-prominently under Carter, Reagan, and Bush Sr., is feeling […]

Even the most casual reader of the Intertubes is aware that former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-DEADBEAT) is pretty much one of the worst people in the history of ever. (Yes, yes, we know: Hitler, Stalin, and Dick Cheney are much worse and belong in their own category of Even Worse Than Joe Walsh.) But aside […]

Oh goody, it is time for Pulitzer-prize winning columnist (yeah, we don’t get how that happened either) Kathleen Parker to explain to us once more why President Obama is being reverse-racist against white people by being, you know, not white. (Or, ahem, as she likes to point out, only half not-white — which is a […]

Windsor-knotted colostomy bag George Will took the occasion of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the March on Washington For Jobs and Freedom to explain that there’s a very simple reason that there’s an economic disparity between whites and blacks: Black ladies are birthin’ too many babies without a man in the hizzouse. On This Week […]

Hey, media and history nerds! With this week’s 50th anniversary of the 1963 March On Washington For Jobs and Freedom coming up Wednesday, we’re happy to share the great radio guy Jean Shepherd’s first-person account of being in the march, broadcast just the day after the event. It’s pretty cool: rambling and digressive, but such […]

Yesterday we mentioned the presence of sniveling rage sack Dana Loesch at this weekend’s “A Farewell to Arms” rally in Colorado. What we did not get around to discussing was the speech this great orator delivered, which is too bad because it sounds as if it was quite the stemwinder. Did you know that Dana […]

The dedication of the new Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial has been postponed due to God’s impending wrath upon the East Coast, but hey, at least this gives us time to reflect upon the fancy new monument and all the crazy controversies surrounding it! Early on there was of course the obligatory “Shouldn’t they have […]

What’s that moving rhetoric and stunning cadence we hear? It couldn’t be Martin Luther King, Jr., because he’s — oh! It’s Sarah Palin! Sometimes we confuse the two, seeing as they are basically the same person.

Today is “Martin Luther King, Jr. Day,” which is a day to remember the life of a special black person — or “socialist Kenyan,” as they prefer to be called these days — who once copied Glenn Beck by giving a speech at the Lincoln Memorial. But more importantly, today is Michelle Obama’s birthday! Our […]
