GOP Credits Rosa Parks For ‘Ending Racism’
BY IGOR VOLSKY ON DECEMBER 1, 2013 AT 12:10 PM
The Republican National Committee celebrated the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, by proclaiming in a tweet that racism has ended:
Racism, of course, hasn’t ended and may have actually increased since the election of President Obama in 2008.
Following the re-election of Obama in 2012, Colin Powell publicly condemned the GOP’s “dark vein of intolerance” and the party’s repeated use of racial code words to oppose the president and rally white conservative voters. Without mentioning names, Powell singled out former Mitt Romney surrogate and New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu for calling Obama “lazy” and Sarah Palin, who, Powell charged, used slavery-era terms to describe Obama….
Awww. The Grand Party of Secession and Trampling everything the Republican Party was Founded to Oppose loves them their tokens and their implicit notion that if ONE member of any minority they’ve oppressed systematically says it ain’t so, it ain’t so. Continue reading
Note: A. Jackson dates have been corrected below.
Yes, Virginia, the modern observance of Thanksgiving comes to us from the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln and NOT from a bunch of Pilgrims. Kind of like how the modern Democratic Party comes to us from Andrew Jackson’s reaction to John Quincy Adams’ theft of the 1824 election, and NOT from Thomas Jefferson? Both the Pilgrims and Jefferson are window dressing for far more portentous events.
Marilyn Monroe shamefully attempts to erase Lincoln from Thanksgiving, even as she attempts to murder the cage-raised bird found for her by the Publicity Department.
And, for the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, you’d think SOMEBODY would have noticed. Fat chance. Continue reading
This is no Frunobulax*. This is Churchill’s full-bore black dog. This is the Thanksgiving family feud started early, and ironically, today is when I sign up for the health insurance denied me ever since I slipped off the insurance rolls for a tough year and returned with a “pre-existing condition,” as noted in this here post here.

CNN/ORC poll: Democrats lose 2014 edge following Obamacare uproar
Washington (CNN) – What a difference a month makes. — A new CNN/ORC International poll indicates a dramatic turnaround in the battle for control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections….
Which means that we have entered a “FACT FREE” zone for the next year until the off-year elections. Continue reading
Yesterday’s “Colonel Klink” posting scared at least one racist out of hiding:
Yes. Patrick decided that he HAD to defend his Antisemitic remark on his own blog, and, fearing that I’d reply, blocked me in the comments. No worries, mate. I have no intention of commenting ON your diseased blog. Here’s a taste of his defense of “fuck the Jews” [emphasis added]:
I wasn’t going to even waste bandwidth on this guy; but it’s 3:50 in the morning and I am bored.
Last night, I left a comment on this blog here. [sic] (Sorry, I won’t directly link. I don’t want his grubby little friends over here.) (See below for update!) For the record, I was referring to the Iranian deal; and his reaction to the right’s reaction.
Anyhow, I left a comment; and I was being snarky, I was being ironic; and yes, I was being a bit of a smarty pants. Not mention a bit of a potty mouth! Needless to say, his terse reaction shocked me, sort of. But in another way, it didn’t.
It is just another prime example of the reactionary, hypocritical left….
So, what I said about Colonel Klink always being wrong and John Bolton always being wrong JUSTIFIES the Antisemitism? (Patrick forgets the First Rule of Holes and proceeds to nail down the coffin lid with his post). Right.
So, I guess “fuck the jews” is ironic and snarky? Perhaps in his Klan Klavern, it is. Consider this bit of “snark” from further down in the posting:
Col. Klink ponders
An historic agreement has been reached in the Iran nuclear
fiasco policy debate.
After years of trying to make sure Iran can’t get any nukes (undoubtedly, ultimately, a fools’ errand, since sooner or later they will), an agreement has been reached, or did I say that already? And Colonel Klink Syndrome kicks in:
Abject Surrender by the United States
John Bolton / Weekly Standard
Negotiations for an “interim” arrangement over Iran’s nuclear weapons program finally succeeded this past weekend, as Security Council foreign ministers (plus Germany) flew to Geneva to meet their Iranian counterpart.
It helps that the Israeli Prime Minister, Scold, and genuine asshat Benjamin NetanYAHOO terms the agreement an “historic mistake.”
Which brings us to Colonel Klink. Continue reading
Note: this draft was begun on November 22, 2011. I invariably write something about this day, but never finished this, for some reason. Here’s today’s headline,
On 50th anniversary of JFK death, Dallas holds first memorial
(Reuters) – Dallas will observe the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination with its first official memorial on Friday, as the rest of the nation pauses to remember the event that changed history….
Two score and ten.
Well, as I’ve noted over the years, nobody wanted to remember it much, anyway. The 2011 draft starts with …
I’ve written about this repeatedly as the years have gone by and this year, for the first time in a while, we seem to actually be paying attention. Well maybe not so much. The again, we might just be getting ready for the 50th Anniversary of our Great National Tragedy in 2013. Today marks the 48th Anniversary of that national nightmare.
Predictably, the nitwit collective mind of our mediasphere/blogosphere seems to give not a fig. (I defy you to find any reference on Memeorandum as I write this.) There is nothing surprising in this. Yesterday, with one of the most important donnybrooks of this election cycle, and at the end of an historic abrogation of responsibility, the screaming moonbats/wingnuts were much MORE concerned with the pointless auctorial masturbation of Newt Gingrich for GOPresidential frontrunner and another round of meaningless polling.

Milbank searches for
the banjo music ….
Milbank, as per usual, sides with the pettifoggers, obstructionists, “Gone Galt”ers and goobers:
The Democrats’ naked power grab
Dana Milbank / Washington Post:
“Congress is broken,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday before holding a party-line vote that disposed of rules that have guided and protected the chamber since 1789. — If Congress wasn’t broken before, it certainly is now.
And no, the filibuster has NOT been in effect since 1789. In fact, the modern version is the result of a rule adopted during the WILSON Administration. Good history there, Dana Dude!
Ah, sting, where is thy death? Continue reading
