Yet another complete tool who made it by lying, playing the victim card, and by being overtly racist. Black America’s biggest problem? They do not throw bums like Toure, Sharpton, and Je$$E Jackson to the curb
If you want to find true racists — those who genuinely hate people based solely on their ancestry — just listen for the loudest voices denouncing others as racists. MSNBC’s pretentiously mononymous Touré, for example:
MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992.
Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”
I guess that would make him a community organizer. As we have seen, even an adolescent fool can go far with those credentials these days — given the right skin color and sufficiently hard left ideology. Turdé qualifies.
Touré’s duties included more than just publishing. The young campus gadfly brought to Emory speakers whom The Fire described as “role models from the real world to speak about life” and a “stunning list of visitors.”
This list of role models included Conrad Muhammad, at the time the would-be heir to Louis Farrakhan’s anti-white Nation of Islam.
Among Conrad Muhammad’s contributions to modern liberal thought was blaming Jewish “bloodsuckers” for making a hole in the ozone layer.
Another role model: H. Rap Brown, a.k.a. Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, author of the autobiography Die Nigger Die! At one time, Brown had been on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List for inciting a riot and carrying a gun across state lines. He spent five years in prison in the ‘70s for a robbery conviction and converted to Islam.
If you want H. Rap’s autograph, you will have to get it by mail; he is now serving a life sentence for killing a police officer.
Also included was Lenora Fulani, who ran for President as an independent in 1988. In 1989, according to the New York Times, Fulani wrote that Jews “had to sell their souls to acquire Israel” and had to “function as mass murderers of people of color to stay there.”
The next role model should have her own show on MSNBC:
Frances Cress Welsing, a self described black supremacist … is famous for putting forward the theory that white people are the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants.
No doubt those who don’t agree with this theory are racists.
As for the fake hate crime:
Sabrina Collins, a black freshman at Emory, reported in March 1992 that a dormitory had been vandalized and racist words written on her walls. The news made national attention. Touré and others protested for television cameras. Collins said the event had traumatized her.
Six months later Collins admitted the entire dorm vandalism story was a hoax.
Like so many others.
But Touré continued to defend Collins’ allegations after she retracted them. “In the aftermath,” Touré wrote in The Fire This Time, “THE POSSIBILITY THAT COLLINS HERSELF PERPETRATED THE CRIME HAS SEEMED TO MINIMIZE THE INCIDENT’S IMPORTANCE. IN ANALYZING THE EVENT’S IMPORTANCE TO EMORY, IT IS NOT AT ALL IMPORTANT IF COLLINS DID IT.” (Emphasis added by Touré.)
Touré went on to insist the incident be used to leverage a list of demands against the university, “including instituting an African American studies class as a distribution requirement.”
With liberals, it all comes down to lies, coercion, and brainwashing. Boor-aye’s future in the establishment media is secure.
CNN will not give his own show, and of course, that makes CNN RAAAAACIST!
Roland Martin on Thursday blamed racism for his inability to get his own show at CNN.
“You have largely white male executives who are not necessarily enamored with the idea of having strong, confident minorities, who say, ‘You know, I can do this,’” he told HuffPostLive.
“I am simply saying ‘give folks a shot,” he added. “We deliver, but we never get the big piece, the larger salary, to be able to get from here to there.”
Guess what Roland, life sucks sometimes. Do you have any idea how many people do not get positive things, like promotions, or their own shows even though they richly deserve them? Wanna bet that those folks come in all colors? What is sad here is that you believe, or have been brainwashed by the Left to believe that every negative you experience is due to RAAAAACISM.
By the way Roland your act is better suited for MSNBS anyway. You might be able to co-host with Toure, who cannot order a cheeseburger without seeing something racist in the experience. Then, maybe you will get your own gig, I will even name the show for you Roland. I think this would fit right into the MSNBS agenda. How about Race Baiting with Roland Martin ?
. In July 1991, a controversy erupted when Leonard Jeffries, a professor at New York’s City College gave a speech blasting “rich Jews” for financing the slave trade and for controlling Hollywood so they could “put together a system of destruction for Black people.”
Sharpton rushed to defend Jeffries, and in the middle of the swirling controversy, declared, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”
A day after Sharpton made that comment, in August 1991, a Jewish driver accidently ran over a 7-year old black boy named Gavin Cato in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and an anti-Semitic riot broke out in which Jewish rabbinical scholar Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed to death. Instead of calling for calm,Sharpton incited the rioters, leading marches in the streets that included chants of “No Justice, No Peace!” and “Kill the Jews!” At a funeral for the boy who had been run over, Sharpton said, “The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident. … It’s an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights. … Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights.” For those unfamiliar, “diamond merchants” was a thinly-veiled reference to Jewish jewelers.
After an investigation, no indictment was made of the driver who had accidentally run over Cato, and he left for Israel. Sharpton flew there in an attempt to “hunt down” the driver and hand him a civil law suit. According to the Daily News, at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport, a woman spotted Sharpton and shouted, “Go to hell!” Sharpton yelled back: “I am in hell already. I am in Israel.”
How twisted is our society? The media legitimizes this tool, and, tragically, many Black Americans are bamboozled enough to partake of the RAAAAACISM Kool Aid he pushes.
Premier Mayor Michael Nutter who is not down with that whole freedom of the press thing
The Philadelphia Human Relations Commission has launched an investigation at the request of the mayor after a well-known magazine published an essay that explored perspectives of white citizens on the issue of race relations.
Mayor Michael Nutter called on the commission to consider rebuking both Philadelphia Magazine and writer Bob Huber noting that “the First Amendment, like other constitutional rights, is not an unfettered right.”
Nutter’s fury was directed at a cover story titled, “Being White in Philly.” The story included conversations with mostly anonymous residents who detailed race relations in the City of Brotherly Love.
Go read it all. This is a great example of Liberal hypocrisy. Liberals love to say we need an “open discussion” on race in America. A discussion where no one holds anything back. That is what they say. What they mean is we need to have Liberals lecture us on how racism is inherent in America, and that racial injustice is rampant, and anyone holding a differing view is welcome to shut up! Obviously Mayor Nutter is eager to unleash his thought police on to those who do not know when to shut up.
The idea of encouraging white kids to wear ‘white privilege’ bracelets to remind them of their so-called ‘white privilege’ is one of the most racist things I’ve seen in a while. Forget about hard work, dedication and ambition. It’s all about skin color.
In reality, this program and programs like it are designed to separate people and encourage hate. They don’t do anything productive, they just give people reasons to believe they are ‘victims’:
EAG NEWS – The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction runs several programs that heavily emphasize racial issues in public schools.
Some feel that one of those programs – an Americorps operation called VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) – may go a bit overboard by encouraging white students to wear a white wristband “as a reminder about your (white) privilege.”
The webpage also offers a series of suggestions for high schools students to become more racially sensitive. They include:
- Wear a white wristband as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.
- Set aside sections of the day to critically examine how privilege is working.
- Put a note on your mirror or computer screen as a reminder to think about privilege.
The Wisconsin DPI also sponsors several similar programs, including CREATE Wisconsin, an on-going “cultural sensitivity” teacher training program which focuses largely on “whiteness” and “white privilege.”
This, of course, is how the Left defines being “tolerant”, by ostracizing students based on race. Despicable!
The important thing to understand about the Democrat Party is that they have no moral or philosophical principles of any kind. The Democrat Party is about power for its own sake, and everything that Democrats claim to stand for is negotiable, subject to change if necessary to win elections. For example, if racism will win election for Democrats, then they will use racism to win elections:
Go read what the miscreants are up to now
You just knew he would throw the Race Card didn’t you?
This weekend, at an event celebrating Black History Month at Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, N.J., the senator answered the accusations with the words of Martin Luther King Jr.
“Dr. King said that ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,’” he said, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger. “Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work. And their scares are false. I have worked too hard and too long in the vineyards to allow, at my hands, for the harvest to be soured.”
“I have felt the sting of discrimination,” he said, according to the North Jersey Record.
Menendez said he believes ultimately, “justice will overcome the forces of darkness.”
“I have my hand on the plough,” he said, “and I am going to continue to look forward and to work to make that plough lead us to the fulfillment of educational, economic and health care opportunity in this country.”
Of course, the Senator IS innocent until proven guilty, but it seems that the raaaaacism defense always precedes an admission of guilt.
Of course not, because, well, not being able to have anything to call racist would be, RAAAAACIST!
Via The Hill:
The U.S. Postal Service’s decision to eliminate Saturday delivery could disproportionally hurt minority groups, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee.
“You’re talking about just this reduction … from six days to five days will cut anywhere from 25,000 to 30,000 employees. And with regard to Asian, African-Americans, and Hispanics, they comprise about 40 percent of the Postal Service employees,” Cummings told Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC Friday night. “So it’s logical to believe if they were to lose that 30,000 jobs, easily 40 percent of them would be African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans.”
And today, it is Danny Glover, spouting the latest Leftist propaganda on gun rights. Billy Bob has the details
You know the actor Danny Glover, right? The guy from Lethal Weapon, with Mel Gibson? Umm, he might be retarded. Or maybe he has done some bad narcotics. I’m not sure exactly, but something is wrong with the guy.
This is what he said to a group of students at Texas A&M recently…
“I don’t know if you know the genesis of the right to bear arms,” he said. “The Second Amendment comes from the right to protect themselves from slave revolts, and from uprisings by Native Americans.”
“A revolt from people who were stolen from their land or revolt from people whose land was stolen from, that’s what the genesis of the second amendment is,” he continued.
This is one of the lies being spread around right now by the Neo-Marxists who are pushing gun control. It is an effort to discredit the Founders, and the second amendment. The Founders were VERY clear on gun rights, do not fall for this load of BS!
Race Pimping Toure is back, and he has found more RAAAAACISM!! Of course this tool could find RAAAAACISM anywhere, because he figures he can emulate Al Sharpton and Je$$e Jack$on and make a living out of screaming RAAAAACISM!
. . . “The slew of secession petitions out of the south really interests me,” Touré said. “This idea that there are a lot of Southern people who want to have nothing to do with Obama’s America. And I don’t think you can say that there’s any policy that has changed America so much that…”
“Obamacare,” Cupp suggested.
“That has not been enacted yet,” Touré replied. “I think they’re talking about, ‘we don’t want to be in a country run by a black man.’”
The fact is that these petitions came from almost every state, but of course, Toure spins this like just us backwards hicks in the South signed the petitions. The South is, of course, always the favorite punching bag for any Leftist that wants to cry racism, and Toure is just going back to that Well of BS the Left has almost run dry. My only question is where will the Toure Tour of RAAAAACISM go next? Where can he find RAAAAACISM next? It really could be anywhere, but, if Toure REALLY wanted to find genuine bigotry and hatred, he could just look in the mirror, or at almost any MSNBS host.
Colin Powell makes an ass of himself in this interview with David Gregory. Sorry, it is true. Powell was a man I admired for a long time, but frankly, Powell is simply parroting the talking points of the Left these days. He says the GOP has to “change”. Change to what? A carbon copy of the Democrats? Video is at The Daily Caller here is part of the transcript
“I think the Republican Party right now is having an identity problem,” Powell said. “And I’m still a Republican. … In recent years, there’s been a significant shift to the right, and we have seen what that shift has produced: two losing presidential campaigns. I think what the Republican Party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed. The country is changing demographically. And if the Republican Party does not change along with that demographic, they’re going to be in trouble.”
I would argue that we need better messengers to take the message of Conservatism to those groups rather than trying to sell them the same identity politics the Democrats have been selling them.
The GOP showed its “dark vein of intolerance,” Powell said, in a variety of unhelpful and self-defeating ways in the most recent presidential campaign.
“You can’t go around saying we don’t want to have a solid immigration policy, [or that] we’re going to dismiss the 47 percent, [or that] we are going to make it hard for these minorities to vote, as they did in the last election,” Powell said. “What did that produce? The court struck most of that down, and most importantly, it caused people to turn out and stand in line, because these Republicans were trying to keep us from voting.”
Where does Powell get that the GOP tried to make it harder for minorities to vote? What, showing ID is RAAAAACIST to Powell? Frankly this race baiting has to stop, especially from individuals that ARE smart enough to know better!
“There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party” he continued. “What I do mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. How can I evidence that? When I see a former governor say that the president is ‘shucking and jiving,’ that’s a racial-era slave term. When I see another former governor — after the president’s first debate, where he didn’t do very well — saying that the president was lazy. … And then there’s a third word that goes along with it: birther, the whole birther movement. Why do senior Republican leaders tolerate this kind of discussion within the party?”
Good grief! Here we go any criticism of Obama is RAAAAACISM! Perhaps Mr. Powell could enlighten us as to why calling a debate performance that was, well LAZY, lazy is racist? Frankly, I think Mr. Powell’s main issue is that he is as addicted to the Identity Politics and race baiting as the next Liberal is.
Let us sum up Powell’s recipe for Republican resurgence.
1-Stop pushing for border security
2-Stop calling for lowers taxes
3- Do not expect minorities to respond well to Conservative ideals
4 Stop trying to stop voter fraud
5-Never, ever, under any circumstance dare criticize Obama
In short, it would seem that Powell wants a new Republican Party, so he can go vote republican without and still be a Liberal at heart!
Despicable. What is wrong with the NAACP? Racists like Ben Jealous
………………….You are not Black unless I say you are Black
So pathetic they cannot help race pimping the Newtown atrocity.
Yep, even when a White man commits a crime against other White people, somehow it is RAAAAACIST!
Michelle Malkin was on with Megyn Kelly today to discuss the response of the New York Times and academic liberal Adolph L. Reed Jr., to the appointment of Tim Scott in the Senate to replace Jim DeMint, calling Scott a ‘cynical token’. Michelle Malkin points out that this is born out of the idea that minorities should be Democrats which is prominent in the “festering cesspools of academia” and it leads them to “denigrate, mock and insult minority conservatives.”
But she asks “who is doing the tokenizing here?” because it’s the left who preaches celebrating diversity, celebration that Malkin says is always just “skin deep.” She says that minority conservatives are really a threat to the left because “there is nothing more dangerous to liberals than the liberated mind of a minority conservative.”
This is part of the Left’s war on intellectual diversity, the only diversity that really matters frankly, folks. They want every minority to be brainwashed into the group think of identity politics.
Rob Parker, who apparently thinks he is the sole judge of how “Black” Black people really are made some asinine comments today on ESPN. The comments he made, questioning Redskins QB Robert Griffin lll’s “blackness” are despicable, racist, and expose a major problem within the Black community. The idea that Griffin is not “really Black” because he does not wish to be defined by his skin color? Really? Or that he is not Black because he has a White fiance? Or that, GASP, he might be a, dare I say it, a Republican? What kind of bigot spouts such nonsense?
ESPNNewYork.com columnist Rob Parker reacted to Washington Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin III’s comment in USA Today that he won’t be defined by his race. An upset Parker responded by asking if Griffin was “a brother, or is he a cornball brother?” and questioning both his reported Republicanism and his decision to become engaged to a white woman.
“I am an African-American in America,” Griffin told USA Today. “That will never change. But I don’t have to be defined by that. … We always try to find similarities in life, no matter what it is so they’re going to try to put you in a box with other African-American quarterbacks — Vick, Newton, Randall Cunningham, Warren Moon … That’s the goal. Just to go out and not try to prove anybody wrong but just let your talents speak for themselves.”
What is wrong with that statement? Seriously? The man is a good QB, won the Heisman, and by all accounts is a great guy. Humble, talented, and classy, and NOT obsessed with his skin color! But Parker cannot stand the fact that RG3 might not conform to Parker;s definition of what Black means!
“Time and time we keep hearing this, so it just makes me wonder deeper about him,” Parker said Thursday. “And I’ve talked to some people down in Washington D.C., and … my question, which is just a straight, honest question, is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother?”
Parker explained his definition of a “cornball brother.”
“OK, he’s black, he kinda does his thing,” he said of Griffin, “but he’s not really down with the cause. He’s not one of us. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really, like, the guy you want to hang out with because he’s off to something else.”
Parker added that the ethnicity of Griffin’s fiancée and unconfirmed rumors about his right-of-center politics were also red flags.
“I want to find out about him. I don’t know, because I keep hearing these things,” Parker said. “We all know he has a white fiancée. And there was all this talk about how he’s Republican. There’s no information at all. I’m just trying to dig deeper into why he has an issue, because we did find out with Tiger Woods — Tiger Woods was like, ‘I don’t want to — I got black skin, but don’t call me black.’”
Oh please! Red flags? Dating someone who is not Black, or being a Republican raises red flags in Parker’s mind? Odd, I would bet that Parker would gladly applaud MLK. So why not embrace MLK’s message? You know about not judging skin color but judging character? Sorry, but I get so tired of this identity politics game. Let people be people! But, arrogant, race-obsessed buffoons like Rob Parker are not capable of that To these miscreants, Blacks MUST be Democrat, MUST date only Black people, and MUST, MUST, MUST be as wrapped up in their skin color as nitwits like Parker are or they are not “really Black”! Bullshit!
Smitty has it, and yep, it is about right these days.
