The White House
I give you possibly the most racist show on television…no shock it’s on the “black” entertainment network (the name itself is inherently racist), BET.
If you were to watch nothing but BET, you might be fooled into thinking every person on earth is black. All the hosts are black, all the news items are meant to be “black oriented,” they even have special “urban” versions of regular commercials filled with blacks.
The “news” show, The Chop Up, is some of the most racist stuff I’ve seen on the network built upon a foundation of racism.
In today’s episode, they complained about an eminent domain case in Florida…in a predominantly white area. Who did they show in the pictures? Nothing but blacks. They wouldn’t dare portray this issue fairly…they had to turn it into a racial issue. Problem is, as I mentioned, it’s a mostly white area. Lower income families, but still not majority black from all that I have seen (Hannity and Colmes did the show from there a few times, and I’ve seen other shows go into the area as well and broadcast from the location.)
I’m completely against this Florida city thinking it can boot hard working residents and hand the land over to developers to build a marina. It’s juat plain wrong…BUT, it’s not a racial issue. Of course, the idiot hosts (who try to make a joke every 2 seconds) complained and basically said the US is a racist nation and we hate the poor. This is where the problem of BET comes into play- you’d think this WAS a racial issue if you watched their network and nothing else. Other networks had both black and white families, and they never tried to make it a racial issue.
They finished this segment with a comment implying that the US usually waits till hurricanes hit until we toss black folks into the street…again, trying to play the race card when it’s not about race. New Orleans is a majority black city…but the hurricane actually hit OTHER STATES as well. I’d wager that the majority of those affected were white citizens, and I bet that most of the money (as well as the media coverage) went to New Orleans. I couldn’t even name another particular city hit by Katrina, can you? What does that tell you? The media and charities focused mainly on the majority black city of New Orleans…surely that’s the OPPOSITE of racism.
They had a few more stories that talked about blacks, more blacks, and even some more blacks (see, every story has to have at it’s center ‘race.’) Unlike the real world, every story doesn’t center around race.
Next, they had a segment from some scary looking guy who spoke perfect ebonics, had some rag on his head and was dressed like a rapper. He said that the illegal immigrant debate was all about xenophobia. Seriously is thug- wannabe going to tell us about politics?! Can he even spell xenophobia?! This is what goes for serious news hosts on BET, I guess. I think I’ll take my news from the guy who actually speaks proper English, thanks.
What was odd is that he said America is like no nation on earth- we have ALL people of ALL races…Irish, Jamaicans, Asians, blacks. etc. But then he had the nerve to attack President Bush as a xenophobe. I guess this idiot doesn’t follow the news, because Bush has been consistent in his support of partial amnesty and a worker program…the fool doing this “news” report tried to claim that Bush wanted illegals out.
1. Wanting illegals out who refuse to obey and respect our laws is in no way xenophobic. It’s simply common sense.
2. Bush doesn’t want illegals out totally…as I said, he supports partial amnesty and a worker program and he’s actually AGAINST building a fence on the border!!
Nothing like black television “news” hosts showing their ignorance of an issue just to attack a Republican.
As Clarence Thomas said- black Americans have been herded into the Democratic Party like sheep…and if this isn’t proof, nothing counts as proof. Why else would you attack Bush when he’s on YOUR side of the issue?! Why, because what Thomas said is, sadly, true for far too many black Americans…and the so-called, self-appointed “leaders” such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton surely don’t help matters in this particular regard.
The big problem is the constant obsession with race and the outright racism involved with this show and the network as a whole.
So, watch the show, but do so with caution, knowing that it’s complete and utter racist nonsense.
You’d think a Senator would be the first person to demand that laws the body he belongs to created be followed!
Not John Kerry. He’s all for the CIA officer who leaked classified information to the press!
And to think- people wanted this clown to be president!
Here’s part of Kerry’s interview on ABC:
ABC ‘THIS WEEK’ HOST GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: On another — on another front, excuse me, CIA official Mary McCarthy lost her job this week for disclosing classified information according to the CIA probably about a WASHINGTON POST story which reveal revealed the existence of secret prisons in Europe. A lot of different views. Senator Pat Roberts praised action but some former CIA officers described Mary McCarthy as a sacrificial lamb acting in the finest American tradition by revealing human rights violations. What’s your view?
SEN. KERRY: Well, I read that. I don’t know whether she did it or not so it’s hard to have a view on it. Here’s my fundamental view of this, that you have somebody being fired from the CIA for allegedly telling the truth, and you have no one fired from the white house for revealing a CIA agent in order to support a lie. That underscores what’s really wrong in Washington, DC Here.
STEPHANOPOULOS: That’s one issue of hypocrisy but should a CIA officer be able to make decisions on his or her –
KERRY: … Of course not. Of course, not. A CIA agent has the obligation to uphold the law and clearly leaking is against the law, and nobody should leak. I don’t like leaking. But if you’re leaking to tell the truth, Americans are going to look at that, at least mitigate or think about what are the consequences that you, you know, put on that person. Obviously they’re not going to keep their job, but there are other larger issues here. You know, classification in Washington is a tool that is used to hide the truth from the American people. Daniel Patrick Moynihan was eloquent and forceful in always talking about how we needed to, you know, end this endless declassification that takes place in this city, and it has become a tool to hide the truth from Americans.
You see that Kerry also uses the tired line that Bush lied. Pretty idiotic coming from Kerry who had the same intel and VOTED TO SUPPORT the war in Iraq! Furthermore, with all the new documents being released to the public, we have damaging evidence that Saddam was working with Bin Laden, that he fooled his own generals into thinking he had WMD, and more…
So, in Kerry’s world:
“CIA officers leaking classified information to uncover a supposed ‘truth’ (a ‘truth’ that is in opposition to my senate vote) is okay. Well, it’s okay but it’s not okay. Let me make a note here, tho- breaking the law is bad. Except when it’s not bad. So it’s always bad, but it’s not always so bad when it helps me, John Kerry. I broke the law before I didn’t break the law! Wait! Oh nevermind…”
Kerry probably needs to think before spouting off…
I just saw some woman, a member of the Green Party, named Elizabeth Fattah on Fox News. Neil Cavuto talked to her about Iran and why other muslim nations aren’t speaking up in regards to the insane comments from Iran’s leader, or the fact that this nation is trying to get a nuclear bomb.
Fattah (VERY appropriate name for this woman…drop a ‘T’ and you have a terrorist organization) said she’s not at all worried about Iran. She said she was more worried about the United States- spouting the nonsense about the US “illegally occupying Iraq”- this is, of course, nonsense. We had a UN Security Council resolution that called for ONE FINAL CHANCE or “serious consequences” and we acted on it. There was nothing illegal about removing a brutal murderer from power.
People that even complain about Saddam’s removal are just out of their minds in my view. The only other view to take is- I wish he were still in power! You can deny this all you want, but there are only 2 choices- in power or removed from power. You pick one.
So nutball Fattah here goes on about how it’s okay for Iran to have nukes- no one has any right to say anything about it. Thank God she isn’t a leader, or else we’d all be toast! She’d allow every despot in the world nuke us into the earth’s core!
She said that no country has the right to destroy any other nation. This was said in reference to the Iranian presidents promise to wipe Israel off the map. Funny thing tho- in regards to this guy she said she wasn’t worried that it was only “rhetoric,” but when it came to the US, her story was different. She brought up Pat Robertson and the whole Hugo Chavez issue! Neil tried to get thru her thick skull that the president of a nation and a TV personality are completely different issues (she mistakenly referred to Robertson as “Roberts” and seemed to think that the guy was a national leader or something.)
She basically said we had no right to remove the Taliban (when she complained about destroying nations- she listed Afghanistan, Iraq, and then Iran- clear references to US actions.) So, she supports leaving the Taliban in power and Saddam in power. She says that Iran is no big deal and that they have a right to have nukes to threaten the world with…she says that the Iranian president isn’t crazy, that his comments on the holocaust never happening and wiping Israel off the face of the map is mere “rhetoric” and no big thing.
Do most members of the Green Party hate their country like this woman does? Are many of them out of their minds as Fattah is? I honestly don’t know much about the party itself, but I hope this woman is a minor figure…if she’s a major figure, I’d probably want to put surveillance on these people because if they share her views- they’re living in a world of delusion.
No troops= no war, reads the sign carried by the students against war.
Here’s a simple comment for these idiots.
No troops doesn’t mean no war. No troops means MORE war. If we had no troops, every nation, every guerilla group, every terrorist organization out there would be on their way over here to ATTACK. Peace, throughout human history, has ALWAYS come THROUGH war. A strong defense is vital to peace. If we had no troops, there would be NOTHING stopping nations from building nukes and dropping them on us. If we had no troops, there would be constant warring across the globe- even more so than we have today…there isn’t a world war right now because powers like the US keep everybody in check to some degree.
When will the pacifists learn how dead we’d all be if we had no military? They’re living in lala land, and it’s just scary. Imagine- college students who are so brain dead they actually think that an end to the US military would bring peace! These people are simply out of their minds stupid.
Wanna know the scariest thing? I firmly believe that college campuses might actually house the largest contingent of idiots in this nation. The most radical among us are more likely to be found on a college campus than anywhere else in the nation.
You’ve got to wonder about polls taken when it comes to politics, our leaders, etc. New polls out show that Bush has low ratings. Fine, I don’t care…99% of these people polled probably can’t even name the vice president and they’re simply going off with the mainstream media feeds them everynight at 6PM. That’s true for most Americans in general.
The numbers that concern me are the approval numbers on the economy. It seems that Americans are completely clueless as to the fact that the economy is ROARING. Last month there were over 250, 000 new jobs created and unemployment is statisically nonexistant. It stands at 4.7%, and that means that nearly every person who is able and willing to work IS doing so. The numbers don’t lie- everything is up and the economy is just completely taking off.
Yet, in the poll, only 4 out of 10 Americans approve of Bush’s handling of the economy!! The report says that high gas prices might be playing into thus number…but if that’s true, then that means that Americans are REALLY ignorant of the facts, as Bush clearly has NOTHING to do with the price of oil! I mean, really- is a reality check too much to ask for, folks?
I’m starting to think that actually following national news should be a requirement to vote. Too many people who are completely ignorant of what’s actually going on, merely getting a few bits of info from the news, and then turning their brains off in this regard, go out and vote and have no idea who they’re voting for or why…who they approve or and why, why they think so and so is doing a poor job. It’s time Americans who vote and take part actually TAKE PART and follow the issues at hand. Voting should be an informed decision, not something that a populace ignorant of the issues does on a Tuesday evening in between episodes of Friends and fast food.
This is absurd. Hundreds of thousands of illegal alien supporters are on the attack…they’re out in large numbers rallying in support of ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES! They use words like “undocumented workers” or “undocumented immigrants,” but sadly they don’t realize that dropping the word ILLEGAL doesn’t change a thing. Illegal is illegal is illegal. An immigrant is inherently a person who comes here LEGALLY. There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant, because immigrant implies you came here and did so lawfully.
We have anywhere from 11-20 million people here illegally, most of them from Mexico. According to reports out 1 out of 10 people born in Mexico now lives in the United States, most of them here illegally!
You may have noticed the ‘protests’ have changed a bit and you see fewer Mexican flags and more American flags…but they’re fooling no one. Large groups of people who advocate illegal activity are not to be respected or even taken seriously in my book. A law is a law- you can’t break one law and then say you respect all other laws. It’s all or nothing.
There is no racism here, as many have gone on TV to claim, it’s simply the fact that we want you to OBEY our laws as we expect EVERYONE ELSE to do. You’re not special in any way, shape, or form…if you’re here illegally, you are, indeed, lesser than the great majority of us, because you are a law breaker. You’ve no respect for this nation if you’ve no respect for its laws.
Sadly, even the Republicans are screwing this issue up. They refuse to criminalize the law breakers and they refuse to secure the border. If Bush doesn’t get his act together and change his stance, he’ll have even less support than he has now. Bush has said no way to a barrier on the border and yes to amnesty. This is just downright foolish. He wants to tell the people who violate our laws that it’s okay, and he wants 11 million more illegals to come in. The federal government is refusing to do their main job here- to defend the nation and protect the borders.
If the protesters think they’re having any affect, they’re right. What they don’t understand is- these protests hurt their “cause.” I have even less sympathy for their “plight” now. When you see so many people carrying the Mexican flag thru our streets, while carrying the American flag upside down, rallying in support of violating our laws- you have little choice but to stop even sympathizing with their so-called “plight.” I say- have more protests. Most Americans will lose any sympathy they had as well, hopefully demanding that Congress change directions and DEAL with this issue once and for all.
Is Alan Colmes the dumbest man on cable news or is it just me?
I was watching the video of him on Hannity and Colmes where he kept standing up for Ward Churchill, going on and on about ‘I support your right to say what you want, tho I don’t agree with much of what you say….’ He said that about ten times to the guy. He then attacked David Horowitz, in the process defending a self labeled Communist professor who is in Horowitz’s book.
It got really funny when Alan was defending Churchill (this alone makes him a complete idiot in my book), but then Churchill started attacking Colmes, because he’s too stupid to understand that Colmes was DEFENDING him and backing him up. Colmes had to point out that, hello! I’m the guy who is defending you.
You know that Colmes is a lost cause when he even has the foolishness to defend ol’ Ward, but you know he’s completely clueless when the despicable human that Ward is attacks him not realizing that Colmes is defending him.
Colmes has been defending all sorts of nuts lately on the TV show. Leading me to wonder if he’s really this stupid or if this is some sort of joke he’s playing on the American people. For his sake, I hope it’s some sort of joke…because I find it hard to believe anyone can be this clueless so constantly.
This guy talked to John Gibson today on his radio show.
His comments were absurd.
Rep. Cynthia McKinney- the nutjob of nutjobs in the US House…this woman has been an unhinged radical for the entirety of her career. She’s had numerous problems, including run-ins with the law over campaign contributions, business problems, and worse.
She protested the 1991 Iraq war, causing legislators to walk out on her inane remarks. She claimed President Bush knew about the Sept 11 attacks before they happened, when she said:
“We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11… Those engaged in unusual stock trades immediately before September 11 knew enough to make millions of dollars from United and American airlines, certain insurance and brokerage firms’ stocks. What did the Administration know, and when did it know it about the events of September 11? Who else knew and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered?”
She attacked Al Gore by race baiting him with this comment:
“Al Gore’s Negro tolerance level has never been too high. I’ve never known him to have more than one black person around him at any given time.”
Unfortunately for the clueless McKinney, Gore’s campaign manager was Donna Brazile, a BLACK FEMALE.
She changed her hairstyle recently and was asked to show ID to Capitol Police yesterday (the officer didn’t recognize her). She refuses to wear her Congressional pin as she is supposed to. When grabbed by the arm for going thru the barriers without permission, she (according to witnesses) punched the officer in the chest. One news report of the affair state that there was a chance of her being arrested after Wednesday’s session. I don’t think she was arrested afterall- her statement on her website doesn’t mention any of this.
That same news report quotes an unconfirmed statement that states:
“Do I have to contact the police every time I change my hairstyle? How do we account for the fact that when I wore my braids every day for 11 years, I still faced this problem, primarily from certain white police officers,” the statement says.
“I was rushing to my meeting when a white police officer yelled to me. He approached me, bodyblocked me, physically touching me. I used my arm to get him off of me. I told him not to touch me several times. He asked for my ID and I showed it to him. He then let me go and I proceeded to my meeting and I assume that the Police Officer resumed his duties. I have counseled with the Sergeant-at-Arms and Acting Assistant Chief Thompson several times before and counseled with them again on today’s incident. I offered also to counsel with the offending police officer.”
This certainly fits McKinney’s racist past with her comments I mentioned above, as well as these issues with McKinney and her racial obsession:

As if we didn’t already know this, but Saddam has a God-complex who thinks he IS Iraq.
The Middle East Media Research Institute posts this transcript from a jail cell interview Saddam did, where he says:
“Even though I am in prison, I don’t allow anyone to speak on my behalf, so long as I live. I am still the president…
…I know that people who listen to me might think that Saddam Hussein has become apathetic in prison and stopped supporting terrorism. No. I’m not ashamed to tell you that Iraq, without Saddam Hussein, isn’t worth two bits. Therefore, it will make me happy if Iraq turns into dust…
…What is the people worth without Saddam Hussein?! What is it worth? Iraq is entirely Saddam Hussein. “Long live Iraq” means “long live Saddam Hussein.” What is Iraq worth without Saddam Hussein?”
And to think- millions of people are furious at the current administration for taking this guy out of power. They’d think the world a better place with Saddam in power. It’s obvious that despots who think they’re gods, who think they ARE the supreme lifetime rulers of a nation are the most dangerous ones who would do anything to conquer other nations and peoples. Think Hitler. Yes, I am just SO sad we took this tyrant out of power…heaven forbid such evil acts.
