I am not a big supporter of organized religion….I find it a bloated entity that has NO real bearing on the true nature of religion….and I am NOT a supporter of anything racist, although I live in Mississippi and at times is a racist entity in itself…..but I read an article that made me hate both institutions even more…..
In order to “promote greater unity,” a Kentucky church has voted to officially ban interracial marriages and prevent mixed-race couples from becoming members after the daughter of a member brought her fiance, who is black, to sing during services.
Stella “Suzie” Harville, a 24-year-old college student in Indiana, told WYMT-TV that she often attends the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church in Pike County when she’s visiting her parents at home. She grew up in that church and was baptized there but is not a member herself, her father Dean Harville told the Kentucky Herald-Leader. In June, she played the piano while her finance, 29-year-old Ticha Chikuni, a native of Zimbabwe who works at Georgetown College, sang the hymn “I Surrender All.”
If she thought her hometown congregation would welcome her fiance with open arms, she was in for a shock: The chuch’s pastor, Melvin Thompson, told them that they couldn’t sing at the church again. And last weekend the congregation passed a proposal penned by Thompson, voting to refuse membership to interracial couples and prevent them from taking part in services and church functions.
It is NOT racist? No matter how you cut it…..it is RACIST! In my state until very recently it was illegal for inter-racial couples to marry……You can quote God, Jesus, Moses or Leno….it is a racist act….clear and simple!
I keep hearing a lot of pundits say that the South has come a long way from the days of segregation…..that the “New South” has become a more equal society and that most of the hate from the past is just….not there any longer. I live in the South. The “New South”. I can tell you that not much has changed in the last fifty years with the exception that the hate that was voiced so loudly is now uttered in backrooms…..I am sure if you follow the news that you have seen the stories of high school graduations that were changed as to not allow blacks to have a prominent place or that the kids square by race and fight or…just go to the internet or Google and you can find all the symptoms of a racist society…..but after all that said….this story is just sickening…….http://bit.ly/o7zWWk
I ask my readers does that sound like there is a “New South”?
From the VOMITORIUM
I always like to give my reader a little history now and then, I believe it helps them in making informed decisions about their elected officials….this time it is a little personal history thrown in…….
Back in the 1990′s when I was at my peak of political activism….I was asked by a local TV station to appear on a show to debate David Duke……for those who may be a bit young and NOT remember the name, let me help….David duke is the past or former KKK head man and back in the days I mentioned he was running for the governorship in Louisiana……I was asked because of my extreme liberal political writings and such and the TV station thought it would be a good show for two extreme political people to go at it….they were thinking ratings……I agreed but the show was cancelled when Mr. Duke and I had a run in in the hallway before the show….I will not go into the specifics but let us say it was NOT a pleasant encounter for either one of us…..my problem with this was that Duke had been on the show several times with NO rebuttal to his racists shit and I had asked the station if they were acting ass his agent……I guess they just wanted me to shut up and planned for Duke and I to duke it out (verbally, that is)….but things did not work out as well as I had hoped……anyway….you are probably asking just why do I bring all this past stuff up, right?
To answer your question…….The F*cker Is Back!
Talking Points memo is reporting……..
The current field of 2012 GOP presidential candidates is pretty boring. You’ve got several grouchy old men, a pizza magnate, and a walking anal sex joke. So why not a white supremacist? Sure, the GOP has noted xenophobes like Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, but they lack the panache of an openly racist candidate. But that could soon change, as 1990s throwback David Duke prepares to embark on a tour of 26 states to feel out his chances of putting the “white” back in the White House.
The original version of the story appears here: http://gawker.com/5818023/david-duke-is-considering-a-white-house-bid
Besides Duke, several other “racial realists” — among them Neo-Confederates, Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and other assorted “white nationalists” — have their eyes on government offices across the country. I seems that the so-called “nationalists” are making a comeback just as they have in Europe……
Look at the damage the Repubs are doing on the state level….can you imagine what we would have to look forward to if these racists started making head way also? The agendas at the state level smack of the prejudices of the past and of the white supremacist movement in general…….
They just cannot help themselves…..I am sorry that most of the Anal-ocities I have picked seemed to be overwhelmingly stuff that GOPers have had to say….but, let us be honest….they DO make some of the most anal things of anybody in society…….you would think that politicians would eventually learn that in an electronic age you cannot hide from the things you say……
Today’s anal-ocity is from the Repub candidate for governor of West Virginia, Mr. Larry Faircloth…….
Terry and Larrice Craver, the co-founders of We the People of Hampshire County, said the group hosted a candidate forum April 29 in Romney,Virginia that three GOP candidates attended.
“While Mr. Faircloth was giving his opening comments, he chose to tell a racist, sexist ‘Joke,’” the couple said in a Monday email obtained by the Daily Mail.”This offended several people, some laughed, most gasped, and one man stood up and walked out and made the statement ‘You’re all nothing but a bunch of bigots’ on his way out the door.”
The Cravers declined to retell the joke in a telephone interview.
Mr. Faircloth ‘s comments were to call Pelosi a “BIMBO” and then to call Pres. Obama a “SAMBO”…….
I do not understand this type of hate among politicians…..
When will conservs decide to call these types of bigot and sexist candidates out for their unfeeling and unwarranted attacks of people that they do not agree with, politically…..this is beyond tacky……it disgusting and sad that in the 21st century our politics have not moved beyond this sort of trash……
Well sports fans, it is that time again….yes some moronic politician has shoved a foot into his mouth by making a completely inappropriate statement…..a total anal statement….and my readers know I will nominate this person for the annual anal ocity award, the Assie……..
It seems that some random previously unknown Kansas lawmaker, one state rep. Virgil Peck, has gone beyond the limits of tasteful commentary when he said……
“If shooting these immigrating feral hogs works, maybe we have found a (solution) to our illegal immigration problem.”
I had a post along the same lines and just wanted all to hear what Olbermann had to say in his special comment section of his show…..He is spot on and well said.
The media is still all over Obama and his admin for the incident…….where is the godd*mn outrage at the character assassination by a yellow journalist? Where is the f*cking outrage at some malignant politico that has NO remorse for destroying an innocent persons life? If these self-absorb morons that call themselves journalist cannot bring themselves to fight the political a/holes on the fringes then they need to retire and let “real” journalist have their jobs.
Some of these politics like to think themselves informed are nothing more than agents of the partisanship that they all bitch about……THEY ARE ALL COWARDS!
As I have said in the past….it has been a great year for anal statements and sadf to say that they just keep rolling in….eventually, these morons. both parties, no one is excluded, will realize that in this day of youtube, whatever they say will come back to haunt them.
This little bit of wisdom came from the mouth of a US representative, as reported by the AP:
Republican Party is looking for a “great white hope” to help stop the political agenda of the Democratic party and President Barack Obama.Videotape shows Jenkins, a Republican, making the comment at an Aug. 19 forum. She was discussing the Republican party’s future after Democrats took control of the House and Senate in the , when the presidency went to Obama, the nation’s first black president.told a recent gathering in northeast Kansas that the
It shows that what I have been saying for months now…that the GOP was the party of rural white people holds true. (Kansas is pretty rural, right?) Rep. Jenkins has apologized for her choice of words, but Sen. Trent Lott made a similar comment and was chastised heavily. But to be fair, the GOP is the white party in Congress and they seem to think that all discrimination is against white people. And since the civil rights battles the GOP has not changed much from those days….so Jenkins was just parroting the obvious.
She may have apologized but that does not change the fact that all analysis points to the fact that members of the party feel that way.
Controversy is stirring among some of the nation’s highest ranking Republican officials over a Christmas gift given out by one of its own.
Some say it is a funny gift, while others say it is offensive. Former Tennessee GOP Chairman and candidate for RNC Chairman, Chip Saltsman, sent members of the Republican National Committee a holiday CD featuring a racially charged song about president-elect Barack Obama.
“Barack the magic negro lives in D.C.,” the song starts out singing.
Saltsman says the song entitled “Barack the Magic Negro” from the “We Hate the USA” CD is meant to be funny, not offensive.
“He make guilty whites feel good,” the song continues to sing.
Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan, from Inez, says he doesn’t find the humor in the song. Duncan released this statement saying he is “shocked and appalled that anyone would think this is appropriate as it clearly does not move us in the right direction.”
Some people we spoke to agree with Duncan, saying the lyrics are inappropriate.
“I don’t think it’s funny at all. I think it’s sad,” Jeremiah Ford of Leslie County said.
“For him to do this, it’s not amusing. It’s just not amusing,” Penny Ford of Leslie County said.
“I think for a representative of Tennessee to send something like that out is just asking for trouble,” Jeremiah Ford said.
Others say they enjoy the political satire.
“Lighten up. Have a sense of humor,” Bobby Morgan of Leslie County said.
Saltsman declined an interview, but wrote a blog on his website saying the negative reaction by party members is just quote “a desire for scandal.” Saltsman managed the presidential campaign for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and held several positions under former Tennessee Senator Bill First.
Is not Tennessee the place that Rep. Harold Ford was beaten by a Repub with a racially charged attack? Repub are doing a fine job of finishing the party off. They have no leadership, no direction and they want new members–fat chance, but if they are gonna find members, the South is the perfect place to look for racists.
I had to read this twice to be sure I was not hallucinating. One of the last places that I would associate Ner-Nazis with……..
Eight teenagers have been sentenced to time in jail by a court in Israel for carrying out a series of neo-Nazi attacks that shocked the nation.
The eight, aged from 16 to 19, were found guilty of attacking religious Jews, gays and drug addicts, and the desecration of a synagogue.
The group, immigrants to Israel from the former Soviet Union, were sentenced to between one and seven years in jail.
Gang leader Erik Bonite, who is also known as Ely the Nazi, was sentenced to seven years in jail, the AFP news agency reported.
“The fact that they are Jews from the ex-Soviet Union and that they had sympathised with individuals who believed in racist theories is terrible,” Judge Tsvi Gurinkel said as he handed down his verdict.
They were charged with offences including conspiracy to commit a crime, assault, racial incitement and the distribution of racist materials.
The suspects all migrated to Israel under the Law of Return, which allows anyone with at least one Jewish grandparent to become a citizen.
But their links to Judaism are slender, with most qualifying for citizenship through grandparents or distant family connections.
