Oprah Interviews Rev. Al Sharpton – “Angry Black Man”

The Reverend Al, on the source of his pain and anger…

Interestingly enough the source was not race based.

 

Bill Cosby…Again

Not sure how Bill got conned into appearing on Don Lemon’s show (senility?), but here he is. The first clip is about the 50th anniversary of the Birmingham Church Bombing. And on a day like today, where we suffered through yet another of the seemingly weekly mass murders by gun at the Navy Yard in Washington DC – It’s a good time to reflect…

Now the second clip is the Cosby of a few years ago. The money line for conservatives to misinterpret what is saying is “No-groes” which he spouts at the 5 minute mark.

Now, Cosby makes a very good point about the juvenile incarceration system in this country – and it’s systemic failure.You can bet that isn’t what is going to be quoted…

 

Piers Morgan Takes Toure to School

I have seen MSNBC trot out Toure as their expert on things “Black”. From what I have seen so far the guy doesn’t have the gravitas to carry that water. Here he attacks Piers Morgan for interviewing George Zimmerman’s brother. This puts Toure in the ridiculous position of denying the Zimmerman family and their supporters the right to free speech. Toure is so far off-base it’s absurd. Piers takes him to school…

“Lying Ass B….” Fallon and Michelle Bachmann

Quite a scandal this wek when Michelle Bachmann appeared on Jimmy Fallon…

The stage band played “Lying Assed Bitch” as she walked onto the stage.

Whoops…

Lawrence O’Donnell Shreds Cain!

This was an ass kicking! O’Donnell takes Cain to task on his “brainwash” statements…

Herman is a Lawn Jockey. This poster is younger than Cain – and I marched in 1963 at 11 years old at the March on Washington. I participated in other Marches, including several far South of my native Virginia before I went to College.

Indeed – Cain’s dodge about being a “High School Student” is bullshit buckdancing. Herman entered college in 1963…

April 2, 1960 – Following the February sit-ins at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, sixteen high school students try to use the all-white Danville Memorial Library, only to have the city close the facility.

This image from Life Magazine in the 1963 Birmingham Demonstrations shows 4 High School Students being hit by a high pressure water hose -

File:Birmingham campaign water hoses.jpg Now perhaps while Cain was running to the back of that bus, he missed the “Childrens Crusade” in Birmingham Alabama in 1963 –  On May 2, more than a thousand students skipped school and gathered at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. The principal of Parker High School attempted to lock the gates to keep students in, but they scrambled over the walls to get to the church.[58] Demonstrators were given instructions to march to the downtown area, to meet with the Mayor, and integrate the chosen buildings. They were to leave in smaller groups and continue on their courses until arrested. Marching in disciplined ranks, some of them using walkie-talkies, they were sent at timed intervals from various churches to the downtown business area.[59] More than 600 students were arrested; the youngest of these was reported to be eight years old. Children left the churches while singing hymns and “freedom songs” such as “We Shall Overcome“. They clapped and laughed while being arrested and awaiting transport to jail. The mood was compared to that of a school picnic.[60] Although Bevel informed Connor that the march was to take place, Connor and the police were dumbfounded by the numbers and behavior of the children.[61][62] They assembled paddy wagons and school buses to take the children to jail. When no squad cars were left to block the city streets, Connor, whose authority extended to the fire department, used fire trucks. The day’s arrests brought the total number of jailed protesters to 1,200 in the 900-capacity Birmingham jail.

In 1957, 9 High School Kids braved desegregating Little Rock High School

Fact is, and always was – Cain is a Uncle Tom punk.

Part II of the interview…

In this one Herman lies about his draft status. The Draft “lottery” started in 1969, in which all men born between 1944 and 1950 were eligible. It was the best year to enter the Draft, as the pool of men was larger, covering 6 years instead of one – as did all the subsequent lottery drafts. Cain’s Birthday, December 13th put him at 163. The highest number drafted that year was 195. Meaning Cain got a deferment. There is nothing wrong with that part, although I know several folks who were enlisted in the Military who did exactly what Cain claims to have been working on.  He says he graduated in 1967, which means he would have been eligible in 1967 and 1968. I am not sure how he earned a deferment in a job he would have been working on, less than 4 months, armed with nothing but a Bachelor’s degree – nor how in 4 months he became “critical to the war effort” doing some very basic math in what essentially would have been an entry level position.

He mentions the fact he got a deferment earlier in the conversation, but then claims he put his name in for the 1969 lottery…

At 163…  He would have been on a fast freight with a rifle to Vietnam. Which means, more than likely – he got a second deferment because of his job. His “put my name in” comment infers he would have gone if drafted – that’s a lie.

Cornel West Interview By Martin Bashir – “Wall Street Greed”

I am coming to feel that Martin Bashir is by far, MSNBC’s best interviewer. Bashir is on point, is aware of the facts, and is willing to confront bull.

In this clip, Cornel West discusses Obama’s recent discovery of a spine (the verdict is still out on that one), the vast wealth and income disparity that is a legacy of Raygun, and the need for Civil Disobedience to fight back …
