The Daily Bigot – Trupizoid of the Day 10/23

Welcome to Trump’s America…

Kentucky fire chief refuses to help black family after traffic accident: “We ain’t taking no n–gers here”

A Kentucky law enforcement official is under fire this week after footage of his deeply racist comments was made public on Tuesday. In September, Southeast Bullitt Fire Chief Julius Hatfield was recorded on a Bullitt County Sheriff deputy’s body cameraduring a response to a traffic accident, when Hatfield allegedly refused to help a black family while referring to them in derogatory, racist terms.

“Well, I’ve got a family of four from Cincinnati, I got to do something with,” the Bullitt County deputy says in the footage, which was obtained by WDRB.

“We ain’t taking no n–gers here,” Hatfield responded, laughing.

The footage also reveals the fire chief helping the other man involved in the traffic incident, Loren Dicken, who is white. According to WDRB, after Hatfield went out of his way to assist Dicken with a tire issue, the chief also had his firefighters pick the man up from the hospital when he was released.

But Hatfield was reportedly less than helpful for the other driver involved in the accident, Chege Mwangi, who is black. Mwangi told WDRB reporter Valerie Chinn that Hartfield suggested he, his wife and two children contact Triple A for assistance, before asking for registration and proof of insurance. When Chinn, who is Asian-American, contacted Hartfield to ask about the alleged disparities in his treatment of the two families as well as possible mismanagement of his department, the fire chief offered a startling (also racist) response.

“Do you understand English, darling?” Hatfield said. “Do you understand English?”

Chinn reports that Hatfield later apologized for repeatedly asking her if she speaks English, and claimed that he did not remember using the N-word to describe the Mwangi family.

What Happens When a Conservative Adopts a Non-white Child

While I have sympathy for Mr French, his wife, and adopted daughter – this, to me, is sort of like you swim in a cesspool don’t be surprised when the folks you meet there are real shitheads.

How neo-Nazi trolls tormented an anti-Trump conservative for adopting a black daughter

If you’ve never interacted with Donald Trump’s hardcore “alt-right” followers online, consider yourself lucky.

For the past year-and-a-half, the alt-right has used social media to viciously torment Donald Trump’s critics on both the right and the left. National Review writer David French, who briefly flirted with launching his own independent presidential candidacy to challenge Trump, writes on Friday about the awful harassment he and his family have been subjected to over the past year.

In particular, the alt-right made a point to attack French’s youngest daughter, whom his family had adopted from Ethiopia. You see, alt-righters view bringing in children of color to America as the ultimate betrayal of the white race, which is why they had particular scorn for French.

“I saw images of my daughter’s face in gas chambers, with a smiling Trump in a Nazi uniform preparing to press a button and kill her,” he writes. “I saw her face photo-shopped into images of slaves. She was called a ‘niglet’ and a ‘dindu.’ The alt-right unleashed on my wife, Nancy, claiming that she had slept with black men while I was deployed to Iraq, and that I loved to watch while she had sex with ‘black bucks.’ People sent her pornographic images of black men having sex with white women, with someone photoshopped to look like me, watching.”

And it wasn’t just basement-dwelling 4Chan users sending abusive images at the French family, as one night his wife received a death threat from a pro-Trump veteran.

“The moment we landed back at home after I declined to run for president, she turned on her phone to see an e-mail from a Trump fan, a veteran who informed her that he knew the business end of a gun and told her directly that she should shut her mouth or he’d take action,” he writes.

All this has taken a toll on him, and he says he’s never been more depressed about being a public figure.

“It’s miserable,” he explains. “There is nothing at all rewarding, enjoyable, or satisfying about seeing your beautiful young daughter called a ‘niglet.’ There is nothing at all rewarding, enjoyable, or satisfying about seeing man after man after man brag in graphic terms that he has slept with your wife. It’s unsettling to have a phone call interrupted, watch images of murder flicker across your screen, and read threatening e-mails. It’s sobering to take your teenage kids out to the farm to make sure they’re both proficient with handguns in case an intruder comes when they’re home alone.”

Race in the Classroom

OK…This guy was a rookie. What he should have said was all white people in America benefit from racism.

Discussing race in the classroom: ‘Are all white people racist’?

A high school teacher in Norman, Okla. is under fire for this assertion. But how should the conversation about race relations be framed? 

One high school teacher’s bold premise – that “all white people are racist, period” – is reigniting discussion about how difficult it is to talk about race in school classrooms.

One offended student in the philosophy elective at Norman North High School in Oklahoma recorded the remark, part of a lecture about how to heal racial divides, on her cellphone last week. The student, who wished to remain anonymous, told the local NBC-affiliate KFOR that she felt the teacher was encouraging the class “to pick on people for being white.”

The controversy comes as the country is confronted with questions of institutional racism in its educational systems and police departments, police misconduct against young black men, and racial inequality. The teacher, James Coursey, appeared to try to draw his classroom into this national conversation. Some education experts applaud Mr. Coursey and others’ efforts to engage students in what can be a challenging dialogue. But they also say he could have just worded his argument differently.

“I think it was a rookie error in teaching about race,” Paul Ketchum, a professor of liberal studies at the nearby University of Oklahoma, told The Norman Transcript. “You go for the big term when the a less loaded term would be better to make it a teachable moment.”

In a statement, Joe Siano, the superintendent of the school district, agreed that the discussion could have been handled better but emphasized the subject should still be a conversation in classrooms.

“Racism is an important topic that we discuss in our schools,” said Dr. Siano. “While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended.”

In the video the student first posted to social media, Coursey starts the lecture by showing a YouTube clip about imperialism. In the video, a man uses white-out on a globe to illustrate how European influence spread across the world, as The Washington Post reported.

Coursey is heard in the recording rhetorically ask: “Am I racist? And I say yeah. I don’t want to be. It’s not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised.”

“To be white is to be racist, period,” he says.

The offended student, who said half of her family is white and half Hispanic, told KFOR along with her father they felt the teacher encouraged the “demonization” of one race over others.

More than 100 student demonstrators stood behind Coursey, organizing a walkout Tuesday. One student said the remark was taken out of context.

“We believe it is important to have serious and thoughtful discussion about institutional racism in order to change the history and promote inclusivity,” he said, according to The Norman Times.

Other educators across the country, from preschool teachers to professors, have stumbled or faced criticism about how they have tried to discuss racism. A professor at the University of Kansas was suspended last year for using the N-word in a discussion she led about instances of racism on college campuses. Some of the nine graduate students in the class filed discrimination complaints with the university against the professor, Andrea Quenette. The university dismissed the complaints, but chose not to renewMs. Quenette’s employment following the conclusion of the spring 2017 semester, according the Lawrence Journal-World.

The University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., drew national media attention in 2014 by offering a “White Privilege Seminar.” Iris Outlaw, the professor of the seminar, said at the time that its purpose is to explore white privilege and other systems of oppression to help students grow. But some conservatives said it was a liberal perspective gone too far.

“This isn’t education, it’s indoctrination,” Notre Dame student and conservative campus activist Mark Gianfalla told the Daily Caller. “The problem I see with this course is that it is teaching a flawed and inherently racist sociological theory as fact.”… Not surprising, from a conservative racist.

Racist Trumpazoids of the Day – 10/21

Another Trumpazoid lets his mouth get his ass in trouble –

‘What did you just call me?’ Black broadcaster confronts hate in Charleston.

In his long career as an accomplished journalist working across the American South, Steve Crump has come face-to-face with hatred and bigotry.

The Emmy-winning journalist spent time reporting on the Ku Klux Klan in which he, a black man, interviewed members of the organization, people who by their very membership profess to hate him due to the color of his skin.

For all that, though, Crump, 59, told The Washington Post that he’s never felt the blunt hatred he did in Charleston, S.C., on Oct. 8.

Crump, who works for WBTV in Charlotte, was in Charleston working on a story about cleanup following Hurricane Matthew. Along with his camera crew, he was filming near the southern tip of the peninsula when he came across a young white man, he and later police identified as 21-year-old Brian Eybers, holding an iPad, apparently producing some sort of “citizen journalism,” as Crump put it.

The man, watching the WBTV crew, was narrating his story into the tablet when Crump caught wind of what he was saying.

“He basically said, ‘There’s a black guy here. No, wait a minute, he’s a slave. No wait a minute, he’s a ‘n-word,’ ” Crump told The Post.

Added Crump, “I went from 0 to 60 in an instant, just like that. I just turned to [my cameraman] and said, ‘We need to get this guy on tape.’” (The result can be viewed above, with offensive language bleeped.)

Charleston’s racial history, like that of other Southern cities, isn’t pretty, and recent events have only reinforced that. The Gullah population, descendants of enslaved Western African peoples in the Lowcountry, can be seen selling handwoven baskets to wealthy white patrons in the city’s palm tree-lined French Quarter, where high-end restaurants from celebrity chefs like Sean Brock collect tourist dollars by the fistful.

That disparity is difficult to miss in the Holy City, so named for the many steeples dotting the skyline.

Crump and the young man were near the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist but Mother Emanuel AME Church sat only 10 blocks away. It was there, in June 2015, that Dylann Roof was accused of killing nine black worshipers. Crump stood in that church, hours later, blood still drying. He stood there again a year later, to cover the wretched anniversary.

After the shooting, the family members of those slain chose to follow scripture by offering forgiveness, an act that turned the city of Charleston into a “disarmed powdered keg,” Crump said.

Naturally, all of this raged through Crump’s head as he stormed toward Eybers. After all, Crump, a great-great grandson of Kentucky slaves, spent his career considering race relations.

As Dennis Milligan, WBTV’s news director, told the Charlotte Observer, “You could safely call Steve the leading civil rights reporter in town with his documentaries and daily stories.”

Crump told The Post that in the moment, he faced a simple but difficult question: “Do you respond to it, or not? Do you let it stand?”

Given the city’s recent history, he decided he couldn’t let it stand.

“Say that a little bit louder,” Crump said to Eybers on tape. “Come on, what did you just call me?”…Read the rest here, including how the young man wound up in jail….

Descendants Of Lynched Black Man Harassed

A black man in the 1910’s who had become successful. The penalty for working hard and being successful?

Portrait of Anthony Crawford

Relatives of lynched black man harassed as ‘troublemakers’ for holding remembrance ceremony in SC

Relatives of a man who was lynched in South Carolina say that they were harassed and called troublemakers over plans to honor him.

Doria Johnson told the Index-Journal that she began receiving distressing telephone calls from residents who opposed a ceremony for her great-great grandfather Anthony Crawford.

“I have gotten some phone calls which are concerning about starting trouble and demonstrations, and accusing us of being violent before we even get into town,” Johnson explained. “One call is too many. Why would you call me up and say you don’t want troublemakers when I’m coming there because of the troublemakers in your neighborhood.”

“It’s just that the presence of black people is always considered problematic, and that’s troubling to me,” she remarked.

In a ceremony on the Abbeville Court Square on Friday, Johnson unveiled a plaque with details of Crawford’s lynching.

The plaque notes that Crawford owned 427 acres and helped to establish farms, a church and a school for black residents of Abbeville.

On Oct. 21, 1916, Crawford was accused of cursing at a white store owner while trying to sell cotton seed. A mob of 400 people dragged him through the street by a noose. He was stabbed, beaten, hanged and riddled with 200 bullets.

“We want to counteract the Confederate symbols that are there and invoke black history,” Johnson observed. “There are no black public history markers there, so we have history teachers, activists and some of our family members who are going to teach classes every hour.”

“He was a strong black man who through hard work was becoming quite rich and I think that bothered a lot of people,” she said at Friday’s ceremony. “He was killed because he was too successful. That is unconscionable in America.”

Racist and Stuck on Stupid Trumpazoids Suckered…Again

How stupid is the average Trumpazoid?

So stupid an entire multi-million dollar industry has emerged providing them with fake material supporting their racism.

Case in point.

Drudge and other conservatives get suckered by a prank Trump story — for the third time this week

Conservative news sites and bloggers have fallen for a staged video of African-American men vandalizing a “Trump car,” the latest in a string of incidents in which right-wing outrage media has fallen for a prank story.

Mediaite reported Thursday that the Drudge Report ran a featured story earlier in the week that included a video of young black men vandalizing a car with pro-Trump campaign stickers.

The story was picked up by multiple right-wing sites like Gateway Pundit, World Net Daily and Western Journalism.

The video makers, said Gateway Pundit — aka gay conservative blogger Jim Hoft — “parked a car with Trump stickers in a ‘black neighborhood’ to see what happens. It took 30 minutes before the Democrats started looting the car and beating out the windows.”

Within 24 hours, the video was revealed to be a hoax and YouTube prankster Joey Salads released an apology video for any harm the staged car demolition may have done. Salads is known for his racially dubious “social experiment” videos in which he stages situations that reinforce negative stereotypes of nonwhites.

Debunker Ethan Klein has since leaked video of Salads and the “vandals” hanging out at the video set on clearly friendly terms. Klein has debunked other Salads “experiments” in the past.

This is the third time in a week that Drudge, Hoft and other conservatives have fallen for fake news stories. A Twitter user named @randygdug posted a joke tweet that said, “i love working at the post office in Columbus, Ohio and ripping up absentee ballots that vote for trump.”

Drudge, Rush Limbaugh and other right-wing alarmists read the tweet and interpreted it as evidence of real live vote tampering and spread the word that an Ohio postal worker was trying to throw the election in Clinton’s favor. Hoft and others even went so far as to call for an investigation by the Ohio state government.

Comedian Bob Whismore posted an image of himself surrounded by what appeared to be seven phony driver’s licenses. “New fakes are in,” he wrote, “ready to make Hillary president.”

The IDs were just photoshops of Whismore’s real driver’s license, but the Trump campaign’s social media department snatched up the tweet as evidence of vote fraud and ran with it.

It is apparently a feature of the conservative movement that is adherents are easy marks. Last year a study found that right-leaning rubes had donated more than 50 million dollars to shady political funds.

The bulk of that money, said Right Wing News, gets “siphoned off to vendors, wasted, and just plain old pocketed by people in these PACs.”

White Boy “Justice” – Child Rapist Gets 60 Days In Jail

You know the “Justice” system in America is corrupt and racist when a white child rapist can spend less time in jail than a black teen caught with a joint of Marijuana.

Father who ‘repeatedly raped his 12-year old daughter’ gets 60-day sentence. Fury erupts.

(Courtesy Montana 17th Judicial District Court)

Judge Robert McKeon

As the judge in the Stanford rape case learned, along with the judge in the “affluenza” drunken driving case, the whole world is watching them. A crowd, an angry crowd, can form in a matter of days of people outraged by what they consider a lenient sentence for a heinous crime.

In the case of Judge Robert McKeon, as of early morning Wednesday, almost 20,000 people had signed a petition calling for his impeachment for the 60-day sentence he gave a Glasgow, Mont., man who pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping his prepubescent daughter.

“A father repeatedly raped his 12-year old daughter,” Deputy Valley County Attorney Dylan Jenson said during an Oct. 4 sentencing hearing.

“It’s time to start punishing the judges who let these monsters walk our streets,” read the petition.

Prosecutors had recommended a mandatory 25-year sentence, 100 years with 75 suspended, which is what state law calls for.

Instead, though, Judge McKeon handed down a far lighter sentence: a 30-year suspended prison sentence, which means the man will only serve it if he fails to meet the conditions of his probation.

Among those conditions, which McKeon called “quite rigorous,” was the requirement for the man to register as a sex offender, the Glasgow Courierreported. He also cannot access pornography and has limited access to the Internet.

In addition, the man will serve 60 days in jail, but McKeon gave him credit for the 17 days he already served, meaning he’ll only spend another 43 days in jail.

The Washington Post is not identifying the convicted man as it could expose the identity of his victim.

In most of these controversial cases, the judges under siege tend to remain silent. What makes McKeon’s case unusual is that he has chosen to defend himself in public.

In an email to the Associated Press, McKeon said he had several reasons for handing down the seemingly light sentence….Read the Rest Here
