Race, Religion and Terrorism in the Wake Of Boston

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Race, Religion, Terrorism

In the aftermath of the horrific situation in Boston on Monday, all eyes turn to the ultimate question: who did this? No groups have claimed responsibility yet, so if it was a terrorist organization we probably would have known by now, especially given the number of amputations that occurred. I can’t find anything official, but […]

Dr. Laura, Your First Amendment Rights Are Alive And Well

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Media, Race

From WSJ: Schlessinger said on “Larry King Live” Tuesday that she “made the decision not to do radio anymore” because she wanted to regain her First Amendment rights and say what’s on her mind. Sure, that’s why she’s quitting…not because her advertisers told her they’re through with her after she blurted out racial obscenities on […]

Arizona Bill Targets Ethnic Studies. No, I’m Not Kidding.

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Conservatism, Conservatives, Legislation, Race, Republicans

Really Arizona legislature? Really Governor Jan Brewer? This is the time when you decide to make this switch? And, from Politico, the text of the bill reads like some of the craziest satire… “Public school pupils should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate […]

The Tea Party protests last spring could have been the start of something important in American politics had it not been for the vocal group of far right wingers who insisted on leveling all sorts of racially charged attacks at Obama and his supporters. Well, this weekend they’re holding their convention in Nashville, Tennessee and […]

White Voters Disenchanted With Obama?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Obama, Polls, Race

In the past week, Obama’s approval rating has finally slipped below the 50% mark in Gallup’s daily tracking poll. The reason why? His support among white voters has fallen from 61% to 39%. And that could be a big problem as he looks towards 2012. Or is it such a big problem? Or a completely […]

Glenn Beck Can’t Answer Question About “White Culture?”

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Media, Partisan Hacks, Race, Video

One of the most intellectually dishonest political commentators is at it again. What’s weird is his reason for not answering the question. Basically, he says there’s no way he can define “white culture” without getting himself in trouble. And that begs the question…why make a statement that claims Obama has a deep seated hatred for […]

Racism increases 67% since January

By mw | Related entries in Barack, Health Care, Partisan Hacks, Partisan Nonsense, Race, Satire

Here are the facts. Racism has been rising steadily over the last few months. In recent polls, President Obama’s job approval number has dropped from 70% to 50%. This means the percentage of racists in this country has risen from 30% to 50% – a 67% increase in only eight months! Even more alarming, close to one out of two Americans are now racist. We have reached a tipping point. If this trend continues, the racists will soon be in a majority. Now, more than ever, we need the pundits and sages of the mainstream media to speak out.

‘President Obama Is A Racist’

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Media, Partisan Hacks, Race, Video

Some salient discussion of Glenn Beck’s mystifying comments with the Morning Joe crew, sans Morning Joe himself. I think that they are all correct in their assessments. I do want to highlight one thing that Willie Geist touched upon. Around the five minute mark, Geist posits the idea that, had some commentator on the left […]
