#MoralMonday / NCNAACP “leader”: Tea Party uses minority voices as “mouthpieces”

Posted by: ST on February 4, 2014 at 9:04 pm » 3 Comments

Because he didn’t dig a deep enough hole with the disgusting, race-baiting bile he spewed a couple of weeks ago about Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), NC NAACP “leader” and Moral Monday founder /”spiritual adviser” / de facto head (unofficial) of the NC Democrat Party Bill Barber decided to keep shoveling today with continued swipes at […]

 

Slate writer: “Racism” responsible for Atlanta’s #snOMG gridlock

Posted by: ST on January 31, 2014 at 4:52 pm » 4 Comments

I’m not quite sure if I could write a response without cursing like a sailor, so I’m submitting this ridiculous piece without (much of a) comment Excerpt: Then there’s the part about having “too narrow a sense of social responsibility.” Exhibit A here is the failure in 2012 of a massive $7.2 billion transportation initiative, which […]

Just unbelievable. Via WCCO (hat tip): MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – School officials at the University of Minnesota are working with black student and facility organizations after they wrote a letter to the school’s president about the racial descriptions given in crime alerts.

Where is the @NCDemParty on Rev. Barber’s Tim Scott slur?

Posted by: ST on January 22, 2014 at 8:05 pm » 3 Comments

Yesterday, I wrote about the sick Uncle Tom line of attack Moral Monday founder/leader/”spiritual advisor”/ NAACP President Rev. William Barber – NC’s version of Al Sharpton – used on Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.   Scott, as I noted in my write-up, responded with his usual class, noting that Barber’s line of attack on the […]

South Carolina’s “The State” news outlet published what equates to a puff piece this past weekend on the now-nationally recognized opportunistic NC NAACP President/Reverend William Barber.  Barber is the so-called “leader” of the unhinged “Moral Monday” movement here in NC that has waged a vicious war against our GOP-controlled state legislature (otherwise known as the General […]

 

Rev. Wright: We’ve gone from “I have a dream” to “I have a drone”

Posted by: ST on January 15, 2014 at 7:26 pm » 3 Comments

I wondered yesterday if Rev. Wright would go off the rails in his first major public appearance in, well, a long time. Sure enough, he did. Via The Washington Examiner: Jeremiah Wright, the former spiritual mentor to President Obama who shouted “God damn America,” was a keynote speaker at a Wednesday breakfast held by the Chicago Teachers […]

 

Rev. Wright back on the scene, will keynote for the Chicago Teachers Union

Posted by: ST on January 14, 2014 at 7:29 pm » 2 Comments

The Politico reports on news that may be of some concern to the image-obsessed Team Obama: The Chicago Teachers Union wants a louder voice in the political world — and to kick off that campaign, it’s turning to a public figure every bit as combative as the union itself: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Wright, of […]

Shaking my head. Via The Hill: Rev. Jesse Jackson said Sunday apartheid still exists in the United States as he reflected on Nelson Mandela’s effect on American politics. “Apartheid remains. Apartheid gaps in poverty, healthcare and education. We’re in the middle of the end of the apartheid struggle now, but it’s just changed phases,” he […]

Wow. Just when you thought you’d seen it all: HOUSTON — Dave Wilson chuckles as he talks about his unorthodox political campaign. “I’d always said it was a long shot,” Wilson says. “No, I didn’t expect to win.” Still, he figured he’d have fun running, because he was fed up with what he called “all […]
