Rush Limbaugh Calls Black Voters "Uncle Toms" For Casting Ballots In Mississippi's GOP Primary

Most of us are aware of the ongoing fight between the Democrats and the Far right wing of the Republican's known as the Tea Party. What some of us might not be aware of is that there is also an interparty fight between the establishment wing of the Republican's and the Tea party. A schism if you will.

This was played out perfectly on Tuesday when Mississippi held a Republican primary run off between Senator Thad Cochran and Tea Party favorite challenger Chris McDaniel to see who would run in the general election. This run off was set into motion when in an earlier primary held on June 3rd neither candidate received a majority of the vote.

Now being 76 years old and a six term Senator gave Thad Cochran an edge when it came down to running a smart campaign in the run off. Not only did he have big name GOP'ers like Senator John McCain and former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour come in and stump for him against his upstart challenger but he also changed the nature of his ground game. Cochran wisely did this knowing McDaniel hadn't gained any fans with his antics during his first campaign which included sleazy underhanded actions such as:

  • Covertly photographing Thad Cochran's dementia stricken wife in a nursing home with the intention to use against him

  • Agreeing to be keynote speaker at a gun rights event alongside a Confederate memorabilia store owner who has advocated for racial segregation and then backing out of it when it was highlighted by a state political blog

  • Accepting (later returning) a contribution from Carl Ford a Mississippi secessionist who was part of the defense team representing a Klansman convicted in 1998 of murdering a 1960s civil rights leader

  • McDaniel also was taped on his syndicated Christian radio show spouting racist epithets against black and Hispanics

Given the racial overtones of the last three of McDaniel's missteps Thad Cochran wisely decided to reach out to the minority community for votes against his Tea Party Rival. It turns out this was a winning strategy since it has been reported that Cochran got an "unusual" boost from African-American voters and other Democrats which in turn propelled him to a decisive win.

This would be where we cue would Rush Limbaugh to intervene with some ugly racist rhetoric... Aaaaand GO!

Radio host, comedy act and human walrus hybrid Rush Limbaugh reacted to Senator Thad Cochran's primary win in Mississippi by calling his supporters "black Uncle Tom voters" saying...

"I wonder what the campaign slogan was in Mississippi the past couple days, Uncle Toms For Thad?  I thought it was the worst thing you could do as an African-American, is vote for a Republican."
Insider Republicans in the Senate bought nine percentage points… from the black Uncle Tom voters in Mississippi. Well, you know what they call Clarence Thomas? Condoleezza Rice? They call them Uncle Toms. The Republicans, these guys that voted for them… Uncle Toms for Thad.”

Listen to the blubbering race baiter here...

So Rush, just who is this "they" that we hear calling African Americans who have reached the pinnacle of their professions racial epithets! All I can say is that when you reference this "they" I haven't a clue who you are talking about? I hear plenty of racism coming out of your mouth... I hear plenty of racism coming out of Tea Partier's mouths... I hear plenty of racism coming out of the religious right's mouths... I hear plenty of racism coming out of Republican's mouths... I hear plenty of racism coming out of conservative's mouths...

So just who is this "they" you are speaking of Rush? You're going to have to be a little more clear and concise when you talking about blatant outspoken racists.

George Will Thinks Women In College Want To Be Sexually Assaulted For The "Coveted Status" That Comes With Being Raped

George Will: Fox News contributor, syndicated columnist and rape truther!
Conservative columnist and right wing icon George Will has made his beliefs known and exclaimed that he believes that being a victim of rape is now a "coveted status" on college campuses.

In a piece Will wrote for The Washington Post named "Colleges become the victims of progressivism" he warned that when

"victimhood (becomes) a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate"

Will continues by mocking victims of rape by actually penning the words...

"Consider the supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. “sexual assault...” 

Really? The "supposed" epidemic of rape a.k.a. sexual assault. How condescending, insulting, tone deaf and ignorant can a man be in just one sentence?

After that vile comment Will then regales his readers with stats and figures that he claims shows that women must be lying about being sexually assaulted because in his little mind that if their were that many assaults it just couldn't possibly be true. He actually claims that if there was so many rapes taking place by his account it would just be "too high" a figure.

Will the hypothesizes that this trend must certainly be due to all the increased political correctness on college campuses. He sums it up thusly...

"the ambiguities of the hookup culture, this cocktail of hormones, alcohol and the faux sophistication of today’s prolonged adolescence of especially privileged young adults."

Or in layman's terms: Dumb drunk horny spoiled kids are lying.

Will then takes the colleges to task for trying to educate their students of the reality of sexual assault on their campuses. Mockingly he says they...

"swaddle students in a “safe,” “supportive,” “unthreatening” environment, intellectual comfort for the intellectually dormant." He takes a final shot at them saying "Academia is learning that its attempts to create victim-free campuses — by making everyone hypersensitive, even delusional, about victimizations"

How dare colleges try to make a students feel safe, supported,unthreatened and rape free while attending their learning institution!

Will then obliquely brings it all back to the real villains of this story... The liberals. With one final snotty facetious blast will squeaks...

"What government is inflicting on colleges and universities, and what they are inflicting on themselves, diminishes their autonomy, resources, prestige and comity. Which serves them right. They have asked for this by asking for progressivism."

What a load of right wing bullshit.

Here's the real deal according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • 1 in 5 women is raped during her lifetime, many when they're college aged.

  • Eighteen percent of women have experienced rape or attempted rape in her lifetime.

  • 45 percent of women experienced other forms of sexual assault such as unwanted touching or harassment, or were pressured into sex without the threat of violence.

  • One in five women, or 19 percent, is the victim of an attempted or completed sexual assault while in college.

It is truly chilling and terrifying if you are a woman or have a loved one who is female going to college  Read the real statistics here...


In addition there is presently an online petition you can sign if you believe like me that George Will's ignorant and insulting comments rise to the level of incompetence that he should be fired from The Washington Post. SIGN IT HERE if you think Will deserves to be relived of his writing duties at that paper.

Rick Perry Says Homosexuality Is The Same As Alcoholism

Hey, is Rick Perry flirting with me?
During a visit to the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco, Gov. Rick Perry decided it was about time he explained his views on homosexuality by comparing it to the brutal life destroying addiction of alcoholism.

When Perry, a former and potential future GOP presidential candidate, was then asked whether he believed homosexuality was a disorder he explained matter-of-factly...

"Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way."

Here is the clip of Perry comparing homosexuality to alcoholism...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnV8ape_IAQ

Personally I believe Rick is confusing alcohol addiction that usually leads to ruined relationships, decimated families and destroyed lives with healthy same sex lifestyle choices that may lead to loving fulfilling and lasting relationships that bring joy and happiness. A common mistake.

In addition I would like to point out that many people who aren't alcoholics often indulge in social drinking from time to time with no social stigma or detrimental effects attached to it. I wonder since Perry believes drinking and homosexuality are interchangeable if he himself takes a few nips off the proverbial same sex bottle every now and then? You know just to relax after a long hard day. I say this because he seems to have really done some in depth research on the subject.

Here we see Perry doing some research.
 Perry's comments come on the heels of the Texas' Republican Convention on Saturday that sanctioned platform language advocating the falsehood that someone can "cure" someone else of being gay otherwise known as "Gay Conversion Therapy"

Pat Robertson Says Don't 'Bust' Dad If He Threatens To Kill Mom With A Gun

Remember what Pat Robertson says: "Snitches get stitches!"
Last week on the 700 Club a child wrote a letter to Televangelist Pat Robertson imploring him for advice about a domestic violence situation he was dealing with. In the letter the child asked Robertson who he should turn to for help when his Father threatened his Mother "with his gun".

This was the content of the letter...

Whenever my parents fight, my dad threatens my mom with his gun. Fortunately, this now means nothing to my mom, and she never goes nuts about it; she is very calm. But as a child, I get nervous and worried when this happens. Even my younger brother saw this incident. What should we do about it and him?”

Wasting no time Robertson got right down to the most important bit of advice he could impart to the child about his father's "misuse of a firearm"... "You don't want to get your father busted" He then suggested that the child should confront his mother about the situation instead of "busting" dad saying...

"Well, misuse of a firearm. What you ought to do is go to your Mom and say, 'Mom, this thing is scaring me and I ask you, please, to get my father to have some help,'"

Now Robertson wasn't a complete imbecile about the situation later saying...

"One day he's gonna pull the trigger. It doesn't take too much if you've got a loaded weapon and you're brandishing it around, 'I'm gonna kill you,' and the next thing you know the thing goes off. Maybe accidentally, but the mother will wind up dead,". Robertson finished by adding: "Your Mother ought to take care of that,"

Here is the clip...


But remember the most important bit of advice in this tale is... Don't snitch!

So just remember the godly advice which I believe comes straight from the good book:  When a child's mother is being threatened with a boom boom stick by the child's father, that child shall not go to the po po!"

In all seriousness... According to Annals Of Internal Medicine, American women make up 84 percent of all female gun victims in the developed world. Children and adults who witness domestic violence (including threats and intimidation) should call 911. For advice and assistance, call the National Domestic Violence hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (TTY: 1-800-787-3224) or visit them online.

Right Wing Hate Monger, Debbie Schlussel, Says Maya Angelou Should "Rot In Hell"

Debbie Schlussel: Vile hate merchant and all around horrid human being
Debbie Schlussel is an extreme right-wing commentator and Fox News regular who gets off on bashing, in no particular order, lesbians, Islam, American Muslims, Poles, illegal immigrants, atheists, liberals and “faux-conservatives”.

Schlussel is a world class hater whose animus is limited only by her meager intellect.

In the past week though she seems to have slipped the last remaining shackles of morality that tethered her to any form of decency. She accomplished this feat by doing what I thought impossible... Writing a seething hate filled screed against the beloved Poet, civil rights activist, dancer, film producer, television producer, playwright, film director, author, actress, professor Maya Angelou who passed away last week at the age of 86.

Upon hearing of Mrs. Angelou's passing Schlussel took to twitter fired off this putrid shot...


Schlussel was not finished though... Not by a long shot. Later in the day Schlussel took to her website and wrote a post entitled: Maya Angelou, Racist, US-Hating, Anti-Semitic Nutjob, Most Overrated Crappy Writer, RIH (rot in hell).

In her opening salvo against the universally beloved Angelou Schlussel rants...

Maya Angelou” dies at age 86. Angelou was America’s most overrated crappy writer, all because she was Black . . . and a far-leftist. Angelou was a racist, America-hater, Jew-hater, anti-Israel, a close friend of Malcolm X, and a strong supporter of Cuba’s Fidel Castro. No, she actually hadn’t a clue why the caged bird sings since she supported the caging and the cagers all the way to her grave."

She then describes Angelou's writing as...

"god-awful “writing,” the most overrated dreck on paper... (a) written bath of dung... absolutely unreadable."

She then took to personally attacking Angelou saying of the recently deceased woman that she was a...

"ugly empress–inside and out... overrated, talentless hack... a madam and a prostitute, and an America-hater... Can you name a single thing this leftist radical, Angelou, contributed other than hate... she wrote in “The Heart of a Woman” (but only her gynecologist actually knows for sure if that was actually a woman)

Schlussel then for some reason takes an unhinged run at this 2012 tweet by Angelou...


Here’s what Schlussel divined from those words:

"[She] wanted her many idiotic fans to know–on the 11th anniversary of 9/11–that Islam had nothing to do with 9/11 or terrorists. Gee, and you wonder why Muslims and other America-haters/Jew-haters loved her so much."

Schlussel closes by vomiting up this last puddle of fetid hate...

"I hope she packed light because it’s very hot where she’s headed. Maya Angelou, Rot In Hell."

Class all the way Deb.

Let's for a brief moment examine these 2 women.

Schlussel is a a conservative blogger whose seems to only be published by Rupert Murdock owned newspapers and whacko right wing websites like Breitbart.com and WorldNetDaily.com. She was also a radio talk show host in Detroit, from 2002 to 2003.

As opposed to...

Maya Angelou, who was honored by universities, literary organizations, government agencies, and special interest groups. Her honors included a Pulitzer Prize nomination for her book of poetry, "Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water 'fore I Diiie", a Tony Award nomination for her role in the 1973 play "Look Away", and three Grammys for her spoken word albums. She served on two presidential committees (under Ford and Carter), and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 2000, the Lincoln Medal in 2008, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011. Angelou was awarded over fifty honorary degrees.

Here is a link to the full list of Angelou's accomplisments.

I think that says it all.

By the way you can E-mail Debbie at: writedebbie@gmail.com if you would like to let her know how you feel about her loathsome screed.

Conservative Scholars Blame "Gay Marriage" And "Obamacare" For The Murderous Rampage At University Of California, Santa Barbara

Ken Blackwell and Tony Perkins... Can't you just feel their god's love in their words?
While appearing on a radio show named “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and a Senior Fellow at the FRC Kenneth Blackwell both jumped the proverbial shark while espousing their deeply held beliefs on why a madman went on a stabbing and shooting rampage last week a University Of California, Santa Barbara.

Where to start... Let's go with Kenneth first.

Does anyone remember Kenneth Blackwell. I do.

You may remember Kenny as the former mayor of Cincinnati or the former Ohio State Treasurer or the former Ohio Secretary of State or even a failed-U.S. Senate candidate.

I mostly remember Blackwell from 2004 when he was the Chief Elections Officer who oversaw Ohio's elections process debacle in which he was accused of disenfranchising minority voters as well as being involved in the Diebold Election Systems' scandal. Many believe both of these incidents were undertaken by Blackwell in order to sway the election in favor of George W. Bush. Blackwell then refused to comply with the ensuing investigations into his actions leading him to be drummed out of politics.

So where does a washed up disgraced Republican politician go when all his options have run dry? He takes up residence as a scholar at the infamous conservative Christian lobbying organization the "Family Research Council".

So, like I said, it was while appearing on FRC’s radio show “Washington Watch,” that Blackwell blamed the “crumbling of the moral foundation of the country” and the “attack on natural marriage and the family.” for the deadly rampage saying...

The teaching of sexual roles and the development of human sexuality in our culture when these fundamental institutions are attacked and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing, and that is a flood of disturbed people in our society that are causing great pain.”

He went on to say...

When these fundamental institutions are attacked (i.e. "traditional marriage") and destroyed and weakened and abandoned, you get what we are now seeing,”

You can listen to Ken blame gay marriage for the heinous acts of a lone lunatic here...



Now let's get to Tony shall we...

Perkins was previously a police officer who was forced to resign, a television reporter for a local right-wing station, a two term Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives and a unsuccessful  U.S. Senate candidate in 2002.

So where does a disgraced cop, TV reporter and washed up Republican politician go when all his options have run dry? He takes up residence as the president of the infamous conservative Christian lobbying organization the "Family Research Council".

Back to our story... So not to be outdone by Blackwell, later on his own show, Perkins shared some additional thoughts about what he believed to be the true reasons for the spree killings:

"It doesn’t really have anything to do with sexism or the assumption that women exist to fulfill men’s sexual desire. Rather, it’s a result of Hollywood, which partakes of the same culture of instant gratification that makes people assume they “deserve” sex or affordable medical treatment whenever they want it. Nothing is being said about how Hollywood has sexualized everything where it’s almost like Obamacare, you have a right to healthcare, you have a right to sexual gratification, almost.”

Yeah he went there! You can listen to Tony blame Obamacare for the disturbed actions of one mentally unbalanced individual here...



You can't make this stuff up folks!
