- FreeRepublic.com is getting sued by a lawyer who buys up content rights from newspapers and then sues blogs that reprint the content. Basically, he’s a Copyright Troll, which is like a Patent Troll. He’s also a giant douchebag if this Wired write-up is to be believed. He has to be bad because we’re siding with FreeRepublic.com on this one! We’ll have more on Freerepublic’s last time they got sued by newspapers in the upcoming history of FreeRepublic.com article.
- Republican Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Ken Buck called Birthers “dumbasses”!
- Tom Tancredo (Racist-CO) will run for governor of Colorado as a Constitution Party Candidate! And he’s already gotten into shouting matches!
- Texas Rep. Lamar Smith (R-of course) was on Lou Dobb’s radio show saying Obama’s close to violating his oath of office. Tom Tancredo isn’t one to speak softly, he just up and says “Mr. Obama is a more serious threat to America than al Qaeda.”
- Republican Tennessee Rep. Zach Wamp (R-03) is planning on seceding from the union over the health care bill. He quickly backpedaled faster than Lance Armstrong twisted backwards.
- In the midst of the whole flap over Shirley Sherrod, the Senate strips funding for Black Farmers who were discriminated against for decades. Good job, senate! By good I mean bad.
- WikiLeaks posted a bajillion leaked military documents about Afghanistan
- US Pay Czar Kenneth Feinberg is a giant pussy who just cost you $1.6 billion. Change.
- Michele Bachman can’t do anything right – Her rollout of the Tea Party Caucus was filled with blunder after blunder.
- What if Sharron Angle held a press conference, and then ran away when the press actually tried to ask her questions!? Wonder no more cuz it happened!
- Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry has launched a campaign to burn Lindsay Graham in effigy because he is not voting against Elena Kagan
- Salon sez:
The IRS filing of American Crossroads, an outside 527 group that was conceived by Rove and ex-RNC chair Ed Gillespie, gives a good taste of who is funding the GOP effort to make big gains in the House and Senate come the fall. The group has already burned through $600,000 on ads attacking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is facing a reelection contest against Republican Sharron Angle (see one of the spots below). Chaired by another ex-RNC chair, Mike Duncan, American Crossroads has pledged to raise $50 million to beat Democrats in the midterms and has been seen by some as a competitor to the Republican National Committee itself.
- There are no limits on how much corporations, unions, and individuals can donate to 527 groups.
Those four dudes: Trevor Rees-Jones, president of Dallas-based Chief Oil and Gas $1 million; Bradley Wayne Hughes, chairman of Public Storage Inc, $1.55 million to date; Harold Simmons, owner of Southwest Louisiana Land LLC; Robert Rowling, owner of TRT Holdings, $1 million.
- Buy an Obama Stress Head, mofos! The Weekly Standard could sure use the cash.

- Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has apologized to Shirley Sherrod over forcing her to resign due to doctored footage on the Breitbart Big Hollywood site. Maybe the Obama Administration won’t be spineless douchebags next time…HA! One thing is for sure, the media will still treat Breitbart like a legitimate news source and not like the snakeoil salesman he is. No word on what black institution Breitbart will smear next, but we’ll keep you posted!
- Missouri Republican candidate Ed Martin says Obama is taking away your “freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation”. Damn you, Obama!!
- The Republican National Committee failed to report more than $7 million in debt to the Federal Election Commission in recent months – and people are blaming Michael Steele again, who will not get fired for this, either.
- Sadly, that is not that big of a deal, because the FoxNews and the teabaggers control the message better than the GOP did, and Karl Rove’s PAC American Crossroads has millions on hand from the GOP’s former secret donors (still secret) and will be spending it come November.
- In Oakland, Byron Williams was pulled over by the cops on his way to killing liberals in San Francisco at the ACLU and the Tides Foundation and a major gun battle ensued. Two officers were wounded by broken glass and Williams was injured. This Real American Patriot is obviously a liberal plant and was quickly denounced as one by every Right Wing site on the internet. Hey, Beck talked about the Tides Foundation! But obviously a coincidence from this left wing infiltrator.
- The Minutemen LOLfest between Chris Simcox and Stacey O’Connell became more hilarious when Simcox claimed that he was being hunted down by bounty hunter O’Connell because O’Connell was sleeping with his wife.
- Former GOP Congressman Tim Walberg (who is trying to return to Congress) says “With the 9/12 movement, the Tea Party, people are standing up really for the first time in history” Yeah, fuck you, Civil Rights Movement! It’s all about the Teabaggers! Up your, labor! You aren’t real people!
- We’re doing this as an html list because someone said people pay more attentions to html lists vs just items written in a line Is that true? Say your piece in the comments!
- Wingnut Site of the Day: NAACPC – The National Association for the Advancement of Conservative People of All Colors – Two black Teabaggers – Lloyd Marcus and Frantz Kebreau – set this up to troll the NAACP with Teabagger backing! You might be familiar with Lloyd Marcus as he’s the black guy the teabaggers bring out to every gathering to prove they are not racist.
- Cartoon of the Day:
Lindsay Lohan is in jail. But enough of that important stuff, the Right has a new NAACP tape to distort and use as evidence that Blacks are the Real Racists!
Andrew Breitbart will be a familiar name to you if you recall videos about pimps and ACORN. Much like how that video was heavily edited, a new edited video has been posted. This one goes along with the current Wingnut furor against the NAACP for daring to say something bad about their precious tea parties. In the video, Shirley Sherrod addresses a local NAACP banquet and recounts a tale from 24 years earlier when she was supposed to help a white farmer save his property who was being condescending to her. The point of the story was to show how she felt remorse for her thoughts of not helping the farmer, Mr. Spooner, and Sherrod did help the farmer and Spooner saved his farm thanks to Sherrod.
The edited video:
Sherrod says she was forced to resign as the department’s director of rural development for Georgia.
The wife of Spooner called into CNN and called Sherrod a “friend” who “helped us save our farm”:
More on the farmer’s wife as news companies do actual journalism! I guess they just couldn’t be bothered during the whole ACORN thing, but now they’re finally getting off their duffs. As the story continues to develop and Breitbart continues to look weaker and weaker, this story will get more interesting.
But who cares about this, we got Yahoo News comments!!! The only thing dumber than Yahoo news comments are Freepers, AOL, and YouTube comments.
NCAWP – National Coalition Against White People
White People are now the minorities, US Citizens and when we are in need, qualify for NOTHING. I know first hand as a few people in my family have lost everything we worked for over the last 50 years. We were turned down for everything we applied for. Sherrad is one of many people in a government position that had a hand in destroying a hard working family. Unfortunetly white people have not established a NCAWP group. All policy, procedures were put in place for all of the minorities. A hard working white person that ends up in need is automatically turned down. We have to fight for anything government helps us with. Now the the last of the OLD VERSION minorities holds the highest position, let see what he does to help the New version Minorities. Every government position held by a minority should be audited. I am sure there are many Shirley types in the US. The “Pandoras Box” should be opened. Then fairnesws will prevaile!!!!
Impeach Obama for something that happened in 1986!
This makes me MAD AS HELL. This is more reason to IMPEACH Obama for the crimes against humanaty he is comiting against WHITES. It makes me even more MAD the fact that I am paying those tribal Africans a HUGE chunk of my pay for their WELFARE CHECKS. If these blacks dont shape up, I say send them all to Obama’s birthplace, Kenya where they can die of aids like all the other head hunting black African canibul tribes.
A real winner here!
Bring back the hanging tree and truck-draggin’ chains!

I wanna hug this women for being edited to be racist!
I wanna hug this woman for being willing to be so stupid and saying such damning things and exposing the Racist elements of the NAACP. Perhaps now we can get the Government to be consistant and call ALL organizations that exsist for the advancement of any race, Racist. Now get rid of the NAACP, the Black and Hispanic Caucuses etc. and lets be equal without our color to help us.
Black people never give me fries with that
As a honky, I face overt racism regularly.
When I purchase food at inner-city fast food restaurants,
my order is always messed up deliberately. The orders
for blacks are not messed up.
When dealing with black clerks, cashiers, etc,, I am
forced to wait while they pursue some nonsense.
It is deliberate disrespect.
Black people stuck on my caps lock key!
THATS THE PROBLEM NOW DAYS BLACK PEOPLE TAKE AVANTAGE OF THIER SKIN COLOR BCUZ EVERY THING HAS TO DO WITH THIER SKIN COLOR THIER THE ONES THAT GET EVERYTHING (FREE)IN LIFE .THEY DONT PAY RENT DONT PAY BILLS NOT EVEN THIER CELL FREE FOOD .FREE MEDICAL WHAT ELSE DO THEY NEED TO GET FREE BEFORE KNOWING THEY GOT IT MADE HEAR .I REMEMBER LAST SUMMER I WENT TO A PROGRAM FOR KIDS TO GET SCHOOL SUPPLY,S AND THE LADY THAT WAS TALKING TO (EVERYBODY)TOLD US IF WE DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING PROVING WE LIVED HERE WAS NOT GOING TO GET SUPPLY,S ,(SO FIRST THING THAT CAME OUT OF THAT LADY,S MOUTH WAS OH ITS BECAUSE IM BLACK WHEN THIER WERE ALL RACE THIER EVEN BLACK ,THATS ALL THEY DO IS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE COLOR OF THIER SKIN (BUTT)THEY ALWAYS MAKE SURETHAT BLACK IS BEATIFULTHENB PROUD TO BE BLCK

A comment from someone under the boat.
Look at all these people stumbling all over themselves.
I love it.
Guilt ridden lefties because they are, deep down inside, prejudice; so they try and explain it away.
Get this folks Shes a F_ _ _ing RACIST!!!!
A RACIST appointed by Obama.You connect the dots.
Racism is Racism I don’t care what side of the boat your on.
Complaining about my racism is SO FIVE MINUTES AGO!
Black on white racism is done more that the opposite now. Only we whites dont cry about it like big a** babies like the blacks do. They are always looking for some sign of it so they can get a freebie.
Face it black people, your stupid little cry baby rants are OLD, BORING and SO FIVE MINUTES AGO.
GET A LIFE!
To those crying look what whites did in the past….
I have scars running down my neck and on my arms from defending myself from a bunch of racist black thugs.What did I do to provoke this attack you wonder? Nothing.As the paramedic was holding the wound on my neck closed I told the Officer what building they ran into.His reply “Your in the Wrong Nieghborhood” I said “Aren’t you going to get them” He said “That might start an altercation” I said “Isn’t That Your Job?!!!! Give Me Your Gun And I’ll Go Do Your Job For You!!!..Officer was Black.. at the Hospital Doctor said I was Lucky if the throat wound had been a millimeter deeper I would be dead. Next Day I called the Police to find out about my Incident report..None had been filed
My nieghborhood is filled with racist blacks that walk around intimidating people, Last holloween I was going home from work I stopped at the store to get some chips and beer, there were about 40+ black kids gathered across the street..as I left the store to go to the bus stop about 10 kids broke away from the group and followed me..As I stood at the bus stop they gathered behind me..One got brave got next to me and said “Aren’t you scared” I stuck my knife too his throat and said “Aren’t you” He backed up quick..then one says “You Don’t know who I am” and I replied “Obviosly You Don’t know Me or you Wouldn’t Be Doing This” they left..
What happened 40 years ago is happening today but in reverse!!
