Lawsuit Alleges Nice California Teacher Taught Students About Racism, By Being Racist

What? You were expecting a more creative picture here? Please.
Racial transcendence is alive and well in Brentwood, California, if the allegations in a new lawsuit are true. The case states that Steven Carnine, an 8th grade history teacher at Paul Revere Charter Middle School and Magnet Center, figured that the best way to teach his kids, several of whom are Not White, about racism, would be just to lob a bunch of racial stereotypes at them: Read more on Lawsuit Alleges Nice California Teacher Taught Students About Racism, By Being Racist…

James O’Keefe Can’t Get Anyone To Say They Want To Kill Cops, Sadface :(

NOTE: Only one of these photos is a mug shot
Poor James O’Keefe has had another of his very serious undercover filmmaking projects blow up in his face, it appears. And for the strangest of reasons: a couple of his employees at “Project Veritas” seem to have decided that one of O’Keefe’s projects was actually too morally indefensible even for them.

  Billo's Seen Cops Shot Too

Oh, NOW Bill O’Reilly Thinks Irresponsible Words Can Inspire Violence

Call him irresponsible...and he will DESTROY YOU.
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Bill O’Reilly would just like to see a little more responsibility on the part of the media in how they cover sensitive issues, because as he’s recently discovered, language can have consequences! In a piece on the shootings of two police officers in Ferguson early Thursday morning, O’Reilly explained the link between violent words and violent deeds: “As we saw here in New York City, inflammatory rhetoric can get police officers killed.” You know, violent rhetoric like telling your black son that he needs to be extra careful around the police, or saying that police shouldn’t be shooting black people quite so often.

Fox News: Eric Holder Really Should NOT Have Shot Those Cops In Ferguson!

The other chyron for the story: 'Street Justice: Police officers shot in wake of DOJ Report'
While two police officers were still hospitalized after being shot in Ferguson, Missouri, early Thursday morning (they have since been released), and police have no suspects, Fox News and other rightwing sources have identified the true culprits: Attorney General Eric Holder and everyone who’s ever protested against police brutality.

Just About Every White Person In Ferguson Resigning For Being A Racist Disgrace

Looks like the end of Close Encounters, only with tear gas.
The fallout continues in the city of Ferguson, Missouri, following the Justice Department’s report on how the city pretty much ran its police force as a revenue-collection operation aimed at transferring money from black citizens to the city’s general fund. On Wednesday, Chief of Police Thomas Jackson announced, “with profound sadness,” that he is resigning, effective March 19.

Wingnut Sheriff To Single Black Moms: Stop Making Cops Shoot Kids!

Meet your 2020 Republican primary contender, America
David Clarke is the sheriff of Milwaukee County in Wisconsin, and he has been a hero to Wingnut America ever since he ran radio ads a couple years back encouraging people to arm themselves instead of calling 911. On Tuesday, he played to his real constituency, the Fox News audience, when host Brian Kilmeade asked Clarke to comment on yet another shooting of a black suspect by a police officer, and instead launched into a rant against the NAACP and single black mothers.

Fox News Takes Insane Acid Trip About Eric Holder Lynching Darren Wilson In Yemen, It Is Just Wow

Huh, he looks all right to us
Yes, Ferguson cop Darren Wilson killed an unarmed black teenager, to death, but in addition to getting a “Nah, man, it’s cool, we get it” from the local grand jury, he likely won’t have charges filed against him by the Department of Justice, either. Ergo, as Fox News has been spewing at us since the non-charges news was first leaked, it is an obvious simple fact that the DOJ never had any legitimate reason to investigate the Ferguson Police Department or Darren Wilson in the first place. It was all a scheme, man, nefariously plotted by Attorney General Eric Holder and Co-Attorney General Al Sharpton and Thinks He’s So President Obama, to start some riots an do some reverse racism.

Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)

They just can't seem to quit him
Fox News wasted no time in repackaging the news that the Justice Department is not expected to file civil rights charges against Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, according to a report in the New York Times, into an astonishingly distorted pack of lies about Ferguson. Yes, we know you’re shocked. Read more on Fox Knows Who Is To Blame For Ferguson Riots (It’s Still Eric Holder Obvs)…

Grand Juror Thinks Ferguson Prosecutor Should Eat A Bag Of Dicks

We concur. Lightly salted rat dicks are called for in this case
You may find this very hard to believe, but it looks like we haven’t heard the final word on the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Even though Sean Hannity and the rest of the Fox “News” legal team told us that Darren Wilson had been proven innocent by a flawless grand jury process!

Praise The Lord And Hit The Deck: Your 2014 Gun-Fun Roundup!

Am'urca
Guns! Guns guns guns guns guns guns guns. Where were we? Oh yeah, guns! Guns guns guns guns guns guns guns. The past twelve months were yet another banner year for guns in this country. In an era when so many of our civic institutions feel as if they have broken down, it’s nice to know that America still excels in the arena of “lunatics shoot people and then everybody yells at each other about it.” Congrats to all Americans for getting in on this robust industry with seemingly unlimited growth potential.

Cops Laugh And Chortle And Ho-Ho-Ho To Song About Dead Black Boy

I'm not touching you...OK, I'm throwing you to the pavement, but not touching you...
From the “Lighten up, it’s only a JOKE” files, we have this delightful little ditty about “Dead, dead Michael Brown, Baddest thug in the whole damn town,” which was performed at an Elks Lodge in Glendale, California, following a charity golf event on Dec. 15, according to TMZ. The dinner was organized by former LAPD officer Joe Myers, and was attended by between 50 and 60 people, roughly half of whom were retired law enforcement officers. TMZ’s source for the recording is identified only as someone at the event who “videotaped it because they were offended by the song and upset no one was objecting.” You know, a troublemaker who simply doesn’t respect people’s privacy (there’s your lede, Mr. Hannity).

Ferguson Prosecutor: Sure, I Sent Liars To Grand Jury. That’s A Problem Now?

We concur. Lightly salted rat dicks are called for in this case
On Friday, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch spoke publicly about the grand jury process for the first time since November, when he announced that the grand jury had found officer Darren Wilson a swell guy. He also admitted that he knew that some of the witnesses he put before the grand jury were lying and obviously couldn’t have seen what they claimed. “There were people who came in and, yes, absolutely lied under oath,” he said, and seemed perfectly OK with that, actually. Here’s the full interview: Read more on Ferguson Prosecutor: Sure, I Sent Liars To Grand Jury. That’s A Problem Now?…

Darren Wilson’s Star Witness Is A Liar And Her Testimony Is An Obvious Fraud. Ha! Ha!

she's a real live boy
“Witness 40″ was a key witness to Darren Wilson’s defenders because her story seemed to wholly confirm Darren Wilson’s narrative of the events that led to Michael Brown’s death. It is Witness 40 who described Brown as a drug-crazed lunatic who pummeled Wilson to near unconsciousness, ran away, then rushed Wilson like a football player, forcing Wilson to bring him down in a fusillade of gunfire.

Cleveland Cops Think ‘Pathetic’ Athletes Should Stay Out Of Cops Killing Black Kids

Not even close to the biggest disappointment on Sunday night
Unless you play fantasy football, you’ve probably never heard of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, but the public relations geniuses at the Cleveland Police Union are doing their darnedest to change that. Hawkins took the field Sunday wearing a shirt that read “Justice for Tamir Rice and John Crawford,” prompting this #HotSportsTake from the Cleveland cops.

Rick Perry Sure Is Glad You Don’t Have To Be Smart To Be President

Oops ad infinitum
Gosh, Gov. Rick Perry (R-Indicted) sure is eager to convince us that he is SO ready to run for president in 2016. He’s been practicing his counting and his ABCs, and he’s got those glasses, and he’s stopped popping pain pills, and this time, America, this time, we won’t be laughing our asses off forever and ever and some-other-word-we-can’t-remember-what about the comedy gold that was Perry’s last attempt to win the White House.

Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online

This never ends well
We suppose this counts as good news, at least in the end. Chris Harris, a member of the Hooks Independent School Board in Texas, has resigned after posting multiple racist images and messages to Facebook last week. He later explained that he wasn’t racist at all; he just got a little worked up in a Facebook discussion of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, which is a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Harris posted this image in the discussion thread: Read more on Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online…

St. Louis County PD: Sorry For Joking About How To Keep Us From Killing Your Kids

Just the black ones, though. And the black adults. But not in a racist way.
On Thursday, the St. Louis County Police Department offered this super helpful advice to parents who might want to know how they can protect their kids from the St. Louis County Police Department:Hardy har had! Kids will be kids, right? Playing with their toy guns, scaring cops who believe they have no choice but to shoot first and claim self-defense later. Kids! If only parents did a better job of understanding that toy guns look like real guns, and cops who have no business being cops in the first place are of course going to shoot ‘em dead when they feel threatened, well, those parents could really help the police out so they wouldn’t have to be killing those darned kids all the time. The tweet has since been deleted. Too bad screenshots are forever! The Facebook post has also since been deleted, but really — no, really — it was intended as a community service that just didn’t go as planned.OK, we get the point that toy guns look like real guns, and it’s hard for cops to know the difference. But using the example of Tamir Rice, with a little cop “humor,” is maybe definitely not the right way to make that point. Not that it matters when there’s video, but by now, we’ve all seen the video of the cops pulling up to the park where Rice was playing with his toy gun and shooting him dead two seconds later. Would Tamir Rice still be alive if his parents hadn’t let him play with a toy gun? Maybe. Just like Michael Brown would still be alive if his parents hadn’t — oh, fuck it. You get the point. [Note: This post has been updated to indicate it was the St. Louis County Police Department that posted and deleted the kids-will-be-kids tips, not the city’s police department.] Read more on St. Louis County PD: Sorry For Joking About How To Keep Us From Killing Your Kids…

Here Are Some Kittens Because We Need Some F*cking Kittens

We have spent all day telling you about cops killing black men — and children — in America. And getting away with it. And all the terrible people who think that’s just fine, and if black people don’t want to be killed by cops, they should have thought about that before they decided to be born black or have black fathers.

Mike Huckabee Outraged Black People Don’t Want To Be Shot

What is he really trying to say?
Mike Huckabee, another Bible-humping wingnut whackadoodle who just might have to run for president to save America from itself, is a big fan of anarchy. Sometimes. Like, when judicial activists try to cram marriage equality down our throats? That is bad and unconstitutional, according to the Bible, and in Huckabee’s ideal America, brave governors who actually care about values and what they are pretty darned sure Jesus meant when he wrote the First Amendment would tell the courts to go throat-cram themselves by refusing to follow these unlawful laws.

Morning Maddow: You Mean Grand Juries Need To Know Real Laws? (Video)

Surely they can't have been this dumb. Oh, they can? Huh.
Hey, you know how the Grand Jury in Ferguson, Missouri, completely exonerated Darren Wilson for all time and declared his killing of Michael Brown perfectly valid? Rachel Maddow had a surprising little fact for us Tuesday: The grand jury had been given instructions about the Missouri law governing when it’s legal for a cop to shoot a fleeing suspect — but that law had been invalidated by a 1985 Supreme Court decision (Maddow is building on an excellent piece on this last week by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell).
