Black Chumph Pastor and Hillary in Blackface

Pastor Mark Burns tweet 082916

Starting with this when it blew up in the Lawn Jockey’s face –

“I am standing behind that picture,” Burns insisted. “We as African-Americans, we need to make Democrats fight for our vote. We need to make them fight for us. We need to make them do what they say they are gonna do, because we are just as valuable as every race in the great state of the United States of America.”

And now leading to this “apology”

Now – the theory that black folks could support Republicans died a painful death, for me at least with the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. Since that time Republicans have opposed every single law or governmental effort that in any way is beneficial to black folks in this country.

  1. They actively and support the murder of black men and boys in the streets by Police.
  2. They actively support death by incarceration of black women.
  3. They actively support blocking voting rights for black people.
  4. They actively support the inclusion and voice of white supremacists and racists in their Party.
  5. They actively support opposition to any effort to “level the playing field” for minorities, whether in access to credit, access to jobs, or the great white Republican bugaboo Affirmative Action.
  6. They actively support and seek to elect racists like Donald Trump.

So, I don’t know what “god” this POS believes in, but if he is hawking “Jesus”…

Its a lie.

Trumpazoid Neutron Dance… Getting Laughed off the Air

First up on the Chumph tap dance parade – Hillary is a bigot for condemning racists…Chumph surrogate Scotties Nell Hughes.

The question in my mind is…Why is CNN paying this racist POS?

Scottie Nell Hughes: Hillary is the ‘definition of bigotry’ because she’s biased against racists

CNN contributor and Trump campaign surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes accused Hillary Clinton of the meeting the “definition of bigotry” for speaking out against racists and white supremacy.

During a Sunday panel discussion on CNN, MTV correspondent Jamil Smith argued that Trump’s hiring of Breitbart chief Steve Bannon showed that GOP presidential campaign was a “rebranding of white supremacy.”

“I would say that [Breitbart is] part of the white supremacist machine,” Smith asserted. “They are trying to make sure these views become mainstream. And I think, through Trump, they are finding a way to do that.”

Hughes, however, accused the media of “redefining what fair means in this election.”

“Hillary Clinton’s problem, she’s having a problem with engagement,” Hughes opined. “And she’s worried about in November, the same very valuable demographic of the African-American vote is not going to be as engaged as they were in 2008 and 2012 to get out and vote.”

According to the pundit, Trump had been right to call Clinton a “bigot” because the term was not only about racial discrimination.

“Bigotry, if you look at the definition, it’s about someone who’s small-minded and sits there and directs hate towards a certain group,” she explained. “Hillary Clinton’s speech [attacking alt-right conservatives] was all about hate towards a group that, while my fellow counterpart might consider them to be very racist, it’s the exact opposite.”

“These are God-fearing, baby-loving, gun-toting, military-supporting, school choice-advocating Americans!” Hughes added. “And just because maybe there might be some, a part of a very small fringe group [of white supremacists] that read Breitbart — by sitting there and saying the entire website is white supremacy is kind of ridiculous as saying just because you have people that are anarchists and communists that read the Huffington Post, calling that newspaper establishment, [is like] saying that they’re pro-anarchy and they’re against the United States government.”

Smith clarified Breitbart’s role in promoting white supremacy.

“What they present is the view of the white supremacist mentality through their coverage,” he observed. “It’s not necessarily saying, ‘Well, everyone who works there is a white supremacist.’ I don’t know that.”

“The point is to say, what kind of viewpoint did they reflect? And it’s undeniable that they reflect a white supremacist view if you looked over their coverage over the last several years.”

Then we have Trump Lawn Ornament Katrina Pierson…

Getting laughed at …again

Roll the Lawn Jockey

Chumph Lawn Jockey Alert!

One of the standard techniques used by the race pimps like Hannity and O’Reilly on Faux News is to bring on one of their Lawn Jockeys to sing from the veranda, and to bring on a generally unknown black “liberal” to oppose them in a “debate”. Most of the time, it is a setup. The Liberal black person is chosen either because they are soft spoken, or at worst, someone who is unaware of the issues.That way it is easily to bloviate over the black liberal, or verbally intimidate them – which is a favorite tactic of O’Rielly.

Sometimes, soft spoken black liberal guest doesn’t follow the script – resulting in a very difficult time for the bought and paid for Uncle Tom.

Lesson…Don’t try and play Leo Terrell for a patsy.

Enjoy!

Another Chumphazoid…Another A-Kicking

Have had conservatives try this line on me before. It is one of those things which results in some conversation ending things being said by myself. If you are a conservative, black or white…Don’t try and quote Martin Luther King.

It is like hanging a big “I am a racist” sign around your neck.

Here, on CNN, another Chumph minion gets their ass kicked.

Kayleigh McEnany humiliated after quoting MLK to black CNN panelist to defend Trump

 

Kayleigh McEnany tried to defend Donald Trump during a CNN panel on Thursday by quoting Martin Luther King Jr. It did not go well.

“He is trying hard to be inclusive,” she said of Trump before calling Hillary Clinton’s speech linking Trump to white nationalists “divisive.”

“It does nothing to bring us together,” she continued. “Like Martin Luther King said, we have to learn to live together as brothers, or we will perish together as fools. Hillary Clinton’s speech did nothing to help us live together as one united country.”

McEnany’s invocation of the slain civil rights leader prompted an audible scoff from Democratic strategist Symone Sanders, as well as a rebuke from Guy Cecil, who leads a pro-Clinton super PAC.

“I always enjoy when a Trump supporter wants to ignore his record and then quote Martin Luther King,” he said. “Martin Luther King would not have kicked African-Americans off of a casino floor because a gambler wanted him to.”

“Martin Luther King would never have put a ‘C’ on the top of rental applications and prevented African-Americans from renting from him,” Cecil continued.

“That was never proven,” McEnany replied.

“Martin Luther King would not have sat on the stage and ridiculed and demeaned Muslims,” said Cecil. “He would not have insulted a Hispanic judge who was born in America who just happened to be of Mexican heritage. The idea that Donald Trump should get pats on the back because he sat on a table with six African-Americans –”

“This is so unproductive,” McEnany complained. “This is what’s wrong with this election.”

However, Cecil continued making his point, referencing a recent poll from Quinnipiac University.

“Sixty percent of Americans believe that Donald Trump traffics in bigotry, and a majority of independent voters said the same.”

Homeschooling As a Response to Institutional School Racism

Used to be that most Home Schoolers did so for religious reasons.

With the reports of the disciplinary actions against black students,  the school to jail pipeline, and the failure of Charter Schools, more and more parents with the wherewithal are deciding to Home School.

Why more black parents are home-schooling their kids

While some parents cite religious and moral reasons, others say they are keeping their kids out of public schools to protect them from school-related racism.

 

Nikita Bush comes from a family of public school teachers: Her mom, aunts, uncles – nearly all of them have been involved in public education at some level.

But her own teaching career ended, she says, “in heartbreak” when she had to make a decision about where her own child would go to school.

After being reprimanded repeatedly for folding Afro-centric education into her Atlanta classroom, she left. Fifteen years and six children later, Ms. Bush leads a growing homeschooling co-op near Atlanta’s historic West End neighborhood.

Despite the promises of the civil rights movement, “people are starting to realize that public education in America was designed for the masses of poor, and its intent has been to trap poor people into being workers and servants. If you don’t want that for your children, then you look for something else,” she says. To her, the biggest flaw in public education is a lack of character education, an “absence of a moral binding,” that contributes to low expectations – and lower outcomes for children of color.

Ms. Bush is part of a burgeoning movement of African-American parents done waiting for public schools to get better. The numbers of black parents choosing to home-school their children has doubled in a little over a decade – about 220,000 black school-aged children are being homeschooled – up from estimates of 103,000 in 2003, according to the National Home Research Institute (NHERI).

“Moms and dads are saying, ‘We just want what’s best for our children,’ ” says Brian Ray, who founded NHERI and has written a paper on black home-schooling parents and how their children perform academically. “They’ve been told for 20, 30, 40 years that public schools will get better, they’ll get better for black kids, but … black kids are still at the bottom of the totem poll in terms of academic achievement… and black families know it.”

The reasons black parents cite for home-schooling their children cover a wide range. Some sound similar to the  homeschooling movement as a whole: religious beliefs, a desire to shelter children from an increasingly crass or materialistic society, a conviction that they are best-suited to teach their kids the values they need to live a fulfilling life.

But other parents cite incidents of racial bullying, studies showing that black students are less likely to be recommended for gifted and advanced classes, and multiple studies showing that African-American children – especially boys – are disproportionately likely to be suspended or arrested.

In short, in order to protect their children from school-related racism, more black parents are keeping their kids out of school entirely, writes Ama Mazama, a professor of African American Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia who has written extensively on home-schooling. She has dubbed the movement “racial protectionism.”

On academic performance, home-schooled students in his study scored between 23 and 42 percentile points above their public school counterparts in math, reading, and English, says Dr. Ray of NHERI. But he and others stress that research is nascent and more comprehensive studies need to be conducted before broader conclusions can be drawn. Ray’s study looked at 81 home-schooled students, for example.

Interestingly, given one common concern about home-schooled students not getting needed socialization with peers, the students in his study scored above average “on measures of social, emotional, and psychological development.”

Georgia’s twist on home-schooling

In most states, home-schooling parents tend to be dual-parent and middle- or upper-income, according to Ray’s research, enabling one parent to stay home and teach the kids.

But Georgia is different, says Cheryl Fields-Smith, a professor of education at the University of Georgia. While most states prohibit homeschooling parents from teaching anybody except their own children, Georgia has no such restriction. That has given rise to co-ops, where, in essence, groups of parents serve as rotating teachers, based on their own skill sets, talents, and fortes.

Nikita Bush

That, Professor Fields-Smith says, has allowed single black moms to band together to give their children an education that they say better reflects their values and history – while still being able to work.

“Some of the most amazing inventions come forward out of a need,” says Queen Taese, a Lithonia, Ga., mom who has homeschooled her seven children. “And with the way public education is going, there was an inevitable need, especially for the black community, because less funds go to our schools and there are a lot less opportunities unless our children go outside our community.”…Read the Rest Here

Racist Brietbart/Trump Trolls Attack Leslie Jones

If you have been keeping an eye on entertainment media this year, 48 year old Leslie Jones has had a breakout year. Starring in the all-female cast of the Gostbusters reboot, a hilarious series of Allstate Commercials, and a gig as “Americas Biggest Olympics Fan”. To my view, Leslie has performed as about the funniest Comedian on TV the last year. Her perfomances have been a breath of fresh air.

Being black, female, and not a Barbie Doll (AKA Stacy Who?) the “alt-right”, made up of Internet Trolls, Breitbart followers, and Chumphazoids had to try and destroy her….

Be strong Leslie – I for one, love what you are doing, love your attitude, and your humor.

They want to destroy Leslie Jones: Harassment targeting “Ghostbusters” star exposes the ugliness driving the new right

The attacks against Jones lay bare the resentments fueling what is euphemistically known as the “alt-right”

Even for someone who has been researching and writing about misogyny for over a decade, it is hard to comprehend the level of obsessive hate that had to go into the attack on actress Leslie Jones. The 48-year-old comedian and actress became a big star over the summer, with her breakout role in “Ghostbusters” and her public stint as America’s funniest Olympics enthusiast.

But to the racist, misogynist internet, just letting Jones and her fans enjoy this moment could not stand. You see, Jones is black, female, and middle-aged, and therefore, in their eyes, she must be punished and humiliated for her success. On Wednesday, hackers attacked Jones’s website, replacing her regular content with stolen nude photos, private information, and racist gorilla imagery.

This comes on top of a summer-long campaign of Twitter harassment that was so vile that it drove Jones off Twitter, forcing the company — which is notoriously reluctant to do much about internet harassment — to actually take measures to stem the tide of abuse.

It is tempting, of course, to write off the attacks on Jones as the work of a few bad apples, an unfortunate artifact of an internet that allows a small number of people to get a lot of attention simply by being the absolute worst. I personally wish that were the case.

But this story goes straight back to the presidential race. You see, one of the main reasons that Jones is a favorite target of the worst people on the internet is becauseshe was chosen as one by Milo Yiannopoulos, a writer and editor at Breitbart. He spent so much time and effort riling up the rats against her that it got him suspended permanently by Twitter, in fact. And Yiannopoulos’s boss Stephen Bannon now runs the Donald Trump campaign.

Make no mistake: Yiannopoulos got his job at Breitbart not despite, but because of his skills at whipping up the sociopathic internet into a frenzy of resentment at even the hint that they might have to share the world with women and people of color.

Under Bannon, Yiannopoulos was brought on to be the editor of their supposed “tech” vertical, even though there’s no evidence that he knows much about tech and despite his history of bashing video game players.

Yiannopoulos got his gig after doing the yeoman’s work of riling up basement dwellers on Twitter, cheerleading a phenomenon known as “Gamergate,” when a bunch of misogynists ran around the internet attacking female gamers for the crimes of being critical of sexism in video games or believing they have a right to break up with a dude if they want to. His real talent is mining the resentments of reactionary losers, and encouraging them to bash any women, especially women of color, whose success reminds them of what losers they really are.

The intended message behind taunting a woman with nude pictures and racist imagery isn’t subtle: “No matter how funny and well-liked and successful you are, we are still better than you because you’re a black woman.”

This is what feminists are talking about when we say things like sexual violence and harassment aren’t really about men being sexually incontinent or bad communicators. No one accidentally hacks someone’s website with racist jokes. No one posts pictures to humiliate someone because they were confused about consent.

We live in a culture where a lot of men think that a woman’s success diminishes them. We live in a culture where a lot of white people think the same of black people’s success. We live in a culture where some white men think the best way to react to this ridiculous fear is to turn sex into a weapon to hurt women.

I want this to be a small phenomenon, but this is why one of the major parties of this country has nominated an unrepentant misogynist and bigot to be their presidential candidate.

If you want a full eyeball of how Trump Country thinks, look at the reaction of Drudge readers to this story on Twitter. It’s all racist jokes and mockery of Jones’s body and sexuality. Not a whiff of understanding that she is a human being. Not even a moment of concern for a woman who is being victimized like this, even though she has literally done nothing wrong — on the contrary, she has made a career out of trying to make people happy. Just dehumanizing, racist garbage.

They aren’t the majority of Americans. Most Americans are better than this. But if you want to know how it is that Trump still manages to pack his rallies full of people, here is your answer.
