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 […]

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 […]

 

Education: I don’t recall field trips like this when I was young

**Posted by Phineas Nope. I remember going to museums, and zoos, and observatories. We even went to a farm, where we got to milk the cows, harvest some eggs, and pick some produce. For a little kid in grammar school, those trips were fun. Then again, we were never treated like slaves and had abuse hurled at […]

 

(Video) Liberal racism in action: The Black NRA

Posted by: Phineas on September 16, 2013 at 1:02 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Like AlfonZo Rachel and his friends say in the video below, comedienne Sarah Silverman and her friends may have had good intentions in mind with their “Funny or Die!” piece, but the message, when you think about it, is pretty danged racist. In that patronizing, condescending way that progressives do so well. […]

The Politico reports on the latest round of opportunistic bile to come from one of the nation’s leading race hustlers: Jesse Jackson, who more than anyone occupies the no man’s land between his mentor King and Obama, the man who won the political office he prized, told POLITICO he “absolutely” thinks congressional Republicans are motivated […]

**Posted by Phineas Remember when Eric Holder threatened to seek civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the wake of his acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin? Remember how he sued states,  claiming that their voter identification laws harmed the civil rights of minority Americans? Remember how he sued Louisiana for providing school vouchers, charging […]
