If She Were Black…

Hmmm… Unwed mother of two, by two different men. Right about now, if she were black the racist right would be singing the “personal responsibility”, “welfare queen” chorus. The other Sno’ Ho’…Indeed.

Bristol Palin’s hateful hypocrisy: She’s now a mother of two, but still the biggest child in the family

It must be very strange to be a former highly-compensated abstinence spokeswoman who is now the never-married mother of two children by two different fathers. It must take a fair degree of mental reconciling to be closely aligned with a political party that is so consistently and so vehemently disparaging of single mothers — well, at least when they’re not the daughters of their own former governors. But Bristol Palin somehow makes it look easy.

On December 24, the 25-year-old “Dancing With the Stars” veteran announced she’d given birth the day before to daughter Sailor Grace, and that “my heart just doubled.” Saying that “our family couldn’t be more complete,” she also shared a photo of her Tripp — who turned seven this week — meeting his baby sister.

The whole family seems delighted at the new arrival — Palin’s mother Sarah took time out of her burgeoning comedy career to share a message declaring Sailor “The best gift ever!” and saying, “Thank you, Bristol, for your strength and good heart and your love of life. The most important people in Bristol’s life were there to witness the miracle of Sailor Grace Palin’s arrival last night. Thank you for sharing the miracle with Piper, Marina, and me, Bri! And we thank Todd for taking care of the rest of the family during this most precious beginning of a great new chapter!”

Though Bristol’s ex-fiancé wasn’t included in Sarah Palin’s litany of her daughter’s “most important people” or given a last name credit, Dakota Meyer seemed to confirm his paternity on Christmas Eve with a tweet saying, “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”

Bristol Palin is likely going to have her hands full for some time now, raising her two young children. But wouldn’t it terrific if now that’s got a daughter of her own, she could spend a little time to finally get more realistic about the world our girls and women live in?

I know it’s a long shot. When she announced, back in June, that she was expecting, Palin knew she was in for a heap of accusations of hypocrisy, and she stated firmly, “I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.” She also admitted, “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you….Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.” It was a plea for compassion — but one undermined when she abruptly turned around and lashed out at “these giddy a$$holes” and insisted, “I have never been a paid ‘abstinence spokesperson.’”

That’s a claim that seems to ignore her gig with the Candie’s Foundation and her speaker’s bureau listing, which put “abstinence” as her primary topic. Palin then soon after wrote a straight up ignorant, facts-challenged blog post about a Washington state birth control program. In August, she unsurprisingly jumped on the anti Planned Parenthood juggernaut, with a post about “dead babies.” And just earlier this month, she listed “Eleven selfish excuses women give to justify ending their pregnancies.” Her Instagram, meanwhile, contains jokey retweets imploring poor people, “Instead of burning the American flag, why don’t you burn your welfare checks?”

How does she have time to pick so many fights and spew so many half truths while raising a family? On Monday morning, she found time to post a video on Facebook mocking Kwanzaa. Talk about leaning in.

In spite of the obstacles she’s faced, in spite of the unjust shaming for her private life, Palin seems resolutely determined to demand she not be judged while judging others. She seems fine with ignoring how unsustainable the abstinence she built a tidy side-career preaching is. She is no longer the teen America first met when her mother was on the campaign trail. She is a woman and a mother of two. Maybe now it’s time for her to grow up.

MSNBC Wusses Out…Again. Martin Bashir Resignation.

MSNBC commentator Martin Bashir has tendered his resignation to MSNBC. More than likely he was asked to leave by cowardly MSNBC Management. This leaves a huge hole in MSNBC’s lineup, taking away what was by far, their best interviewer. I mean I love you Rachael, but although she is smarter than the entire collection of Faux News bimbos combined, cutting through the bullshit in an interview isn’t her strong point. Bashir is a victim of responding to the Sno’ Ho’s ignorant and racist comments in kind – saying what a lot of us would if we had the microphone.

To be honest, if MSNBC is too chickenshit to call Palin on her pernicious and offensive racist statements…

Then they are too chickenshit for this viewer.

Putting this one under the heading of Domestic Terrorism.

 

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC Following Sarah Palin Comments

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following weeks of controversy over his incendiary comments about Sarah Palin, he announced in an email posted byMediaite on Wednesday.

“Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the president of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation,” the email read in part. “It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.”

In a statement, MSNBC president Phil Griffin paid tribute to Bashir:

“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”

Bashir had been a host on the network since 2011, and had frequently raised eyebrows with his hyperbolic commentary. But his comments in November in response to remarks about slavery by Palin touched off a firestorm. Among other things, Bashir said that someone should defecate and urinate in Palin’s mouth, a punishment delivered to some slaves. He apologized, but the comments continued tohaunt him.

Bashir’s resignation came shortly after Alec Baldwin parted ways with MSNBC over anti-gay comments he made towards a photographer. At the time, many wondered why Baldwin, who was suspended for two weeks for statements he made off the air, was seemingly being punished more than Bashir, who was not given any immediate suspension.

Bashir’s departure leaves a hole in MSNBC’s afternoon lineup. Leading candidates for the slot include MSNBC contributor and guest host Joy Reid, along with the recently hired Ronan Farrow. For the time being, Reid will fill in as a guest host.

Bashir Takes a Dump on the Sno’ Ho’

I mean…Tell us how you feel, Martin! The only issue I see here is his suggestion wouldn’t be any different than taking a dump in a Don’s John.,,

You are just adding to the pile.

Martin, you get an Honorary Giant Negro Award for that one!

MSNBC’s Bashir: Sarah Palin Should Be Defecated, Pissed On

MARTIN BASHIR: We end this week in the way it began — with America’s resident dunce, Sarah Palin, scraping the barrel of her long deceased mind, and using her all time favorite analogy in an attempt to sound intelligent about the national debt.

SARAH PALIN: Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children, and borrowing from China. When that note comes due and this isn’t racist, so try it. Try it anyway. This isn’t racist. But it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due.

BASHIR: It’ll be like slavery. Given her well-established reputation as a world class idiot, it’s hardly surprising that she should choose to mention slavery in a way that is abominable to anyone who knows anything about its barbaric history. So here’s an example: One of the most comprehensive first-person accounts of slavery comes from the personal diary of a man called Thomas Thistlewood, who kept copious notes for 39 years. Thistlewood was the son of a tenant farmer who arrived on the island of Jamaica in April 1750 and assumed the position of overseer at a major plantation.

What is most shocking about Thistlewood’s diary is not simply the fact that he assumes the right to own and possess other human beings, but the sheer cruelty and brutality of his regime. In 1756, he records that a slave named Darby catched [sic] eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, S-H-I-T in his mouth. This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.

And he mentions a similar incident again in 1756, this time in relation to a man he refers to as Punch. Flogged Punch well and then washed and rubbed salt pickle, lime juice and bird pepper. Made Negro Joe piss in his eyes and mouth. I could go on, but you get the point.

When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.

Shutdown Ted and the Sn Ho’ incited the vandalism.

Larry Klayman Tells Obama ‘To Put The Quran Down’ At Veterans Rally

Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group, said the country is “ruled by a president who bows down to Allah,” and “is not a president of ‘we the people.'”

“I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come up with his hands out,” he said.

Klayman was joined by a group of veterans protesting the memorial closures that followed the government shutdown earlier this month. The demonstrators, who were met by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former Alaska Gov Sarah Palin, pushed through the barriers at war memorials and carried the barricades back to the White House, Confederate flags in tow.

White Sheep in the Obama Family Tree

Not only is President Obama related to Dick Cheney – but his family line has several other disreputable blotches, AKA White Sheep in this case…

Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh!

That kind of stuff would make you swear you were adopted.

BTW… What’s that “once removed” part, again?

Proving once again… If you go back far enough…

You’re related to everybody.

Can Obama really be related to his top conservative foes? You betcha!

Yup _ the president has family ties to none other than Sarah Palin, according to the genealogists atAncestry.com, a discovery the family history site made when looking for connections between political foes.

And that’s not all _ Obama also is apparently related to radio host and relentless critic Rush Limbaugh. Might you want to reconsider some of your recent comments, Mr. Limbaugh, now that you’re apparently family? Read the rest of this entry »

Thrilla’ in Wasilla!

It appears that the Republican Party is imploding, just before their hugely hyped prediction of a Midterm election victory…

The War in Alaska…

Throwing Nothing But Right Hooks...

Lisa Murkowski, defying Sarah Palin, announces write-in bid for Alaska Senate against Joe Miller

Three’s a party in Alaska.

Weeks after losing the Republican primary to Joe Miller in one of the Tea Party coups of the 2010 election, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski has announced that she will run in the general election as a write-in candidate, setting off a competitive three-way race for the seat.

Murkowski made the announcement to supporters at an Anchorage convention center on Friday.

“The gloves are off,” Murkowski said at the event, adding that Alaskans deserve a choice between the “extremist views” of Joe Miller and “inexperience” of Democratic candidate Scott McAdams.

Miller, a slightly bearded political neophyte, is strongly backed by both the Tea Party and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

War in the Streets, DC Aug 28th

This one is an invitation to a disaster…

Beck/Palin rally permit approved

The National Park Service said Thursday that it has approved the permit for the Aug. 28 Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin rally at the Lincoln Memorial.

Park Service spokesman Bill Line said the permit indicates that organizers expect 300,000 people to attend. Line said it is a “fixed rally” without a march. The rally will go from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The park service is processing a permit request for a counter demonstration and rally by the Rev. Al Sharpton on the same day along Independence Avenue, south of the memorial. Line said the Sharpton rally organizers list 3,000 expected attendees on their permit request.
