It's crazy, this has to be said, to the party that freed the slaves:
“A Southern GOP senator who actually cares about his Democratic African-American constituents could be as revolutionary as the Tea Party thinks it is.”
It just goes to show you how far they've slid from their mission,…
“I think the way most African-Americans see it, Obama is doing the best he can, given Republican resistance.”

Are Instapundit's Readers Ménage à Trios-Having Sci-Fi Fans Into Fascism, Racism, And Sheer Batshit Insanity?
Over the years, Glenn Reynolds has been pushing Robert A. Heinlein's "bad luck" quote - hard.
It's a hard message for a man from Tennessee.
Just so we're clear - Yep, Robert A. Heinlein was a racist - and, not only that but, he was a racist who was once in a three-way with Scientology's L. Ron Hubbard.
Come on, it wouldn't be TMR without that last part.
As we also know, The Tea Party is an offshoot of The John Birch Society, which Heinlein was into, concluding it was a "fascist organization" but - just like Reynolds - one Heinlein found preferable to liberals and moderate conservatives.
The John Birch Society, too, lost election after crazy election, partially due to (all of) their embarrassing racism.
And now they're headed into America's political wilderness again because, with these roots, oblivion is where their "movements" have always (all) deserved to be anyway.
The last of our people lacking in grace,…
"Cochran was well in his rights, and the law, to expand the map of the electorate. To appeal to new groups of voters—to ask them to consider your policies and their impact on their communities—is to play politics in its purest form. Cochran didn’t cheat, he changed the game. And because of his views and his rhetoric, McDaniel couldn’t play."
That's the thing in politics:
Once you stop whittling away at the rock-solid principles you claim to hold, that's when you actually might have something,…

Ever since a white guy was compelled to lecture TMR on what a bastion of equal opportunity Silicon Valley is - which was BEFORE the diversity numbers came out - the laughter around these parts hasn't stopped:
"While the released numbers have been disappointing—women represent around 30 percent and African Americans rarely exceed 2 percent of the workforce at all companies—corporations are now trying to address the issue."
The latest hire for moderating Black Twitter.
Oh, so NOW they're "trying" to address the issue, which must be really, really difficult since they weren't addressing it before, when they were convinced - with a 2% black workforce - they were already quite successful in that area.
Never has been recommended reading and never will be.
In other words, white guys in Silicon Valley are so cluelessly racist, they were using racism to defend themselves against the charge.
Millions of little white obstacles are being moved, by strong black men, daily.
That's why - just like whites - all of TMR's laughter at their expense has been completely involuntary,…

Mayfield, vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party, and is one of the three men charged with conspiring with Clayton Kelly to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran's bedridden wife in her nursing home and create a political video against Cochran,....
The arrest of Mayfield, well-known in political, business and legal circles, caused shock in Mississippi, in a criminal case and election that already had Mississippi in the national spotlight.
Stephen Colbert is positively sweet here,…
And another perversion of Martin Luther King - by a white guy - has gotten us into trouble again,….

"The story’s not over yet. Aides to both men told me their priorities are converging as Obama and Holder look to their legacies, attacking the unfinished business of racial justice,…"
If gazing is a job that's open to blacks I'll take it. A lot of blacks would. Especially black men. This is one position black American men are over-qualified for. Except with one big difference:
No one would have to tell you what to do with your "Peace Pole," right?
TMR Is A Tea Party Pooper Because Only Our American Crazies Believed Creating "Heaven On Earth" Is Political
It was a Tea Party gathering for Utah's David Kirkham - which TMR was led to by Glenn Reynolds - that provided evidence the Tea Party was just a collection of white religious whackos no black atheist blogger wanted anything to do with:
"To understand why the Tea Party resonates with the religious right and vice versa, one must understand how the anti-government rhetoric of the Tea Party movement is driven by a fundamental tenet of Christian reconstructionism: that there are certain God-ordained spheres – family, church and government – and that government has exceeded the authority God gave it, to the detriment of church, family and the individual, whose rights, both Tea Partiers and religious right-ists maintain, are granted by God, not the government.
This notion that the federal government – not only godless, but in flagrant violation of God's will – is "tyrannical" and needs to be overthrown resonates from militias to the John Birch Society to the podiums of religious-right gatherings where Republican presidential hopefuls jockey for the support of the faithful. To fail to see the religious roots of the Tea Party mantra – or the ways in which it reverberates as a divine imperative – is to blind oneself to a fundamental feature of American conservatism."
The fact they'd lie about their beliefs - hiding them behind economic concerns - was an immediate disqualifier for TMR when it came to listening to, both, Kirkham AND Reynolds,…
TMR posted this story a couple of days ago but, now that there's video, we can celebrate the outcome with little Abby's input.
