    Townhall.com ^ | April 18, 2014 | Brent Bozell
    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. For its second season, the creators of the FX series "The Americans" have chosen a new source for insight into the Cold War during the Reagan years -- one Lt. Col. Oliver North. It's a dramatic reversal from the first season, and it has infuriated some hard leftists. The show began with the shocking promise from creator Joel Weisberg that the series' heroes would be KGB agents: "We're making them the sympathetic characters. I'd go so far as to say they're the heroes." It quickly became apparent that these characters could...

    Alabama State Rep. Alvin Holmes (D) who said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is an "Uncle Tom" for being married to a white woman believes men should be allowed to marry mules. As Yellowhammer News, a go-to site for Alabama politics, noted, Holmes has come under fire recently for making comments about Thomas, interracial adoptions, and black Republicans. And when asked about interracial marriage, he revealed he was in favor of men marrying animals. “Now, I’m for interracial marriage,” Holmes said on a local radio show, according to Yellowhammer News. He continued: I’m for same-sex marriage. I’m the one that...

    MONTGOMERY, AL, April 10, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – More than 100 people rallied at the Alabama State House in Montgomery yesterday afternoon to disprove a Democrat's controversial remarks that whites do not adopt black children and prefer to see interracial babies aborted. In March, state Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said during a debate over a fetal heartbeat bill that “99 percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion. They ain't gonna let her have the baby.” In the same March...

    Justice Clarence Thomas’s influence was on full display in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to strike down a key campaign finance restriction.  And it’s just one in a string of cases in which Thomas could be dragging the court toward his way of thinking. Chief Justice John Roberts penned Wednesday’s plurality decision, which eliminates the limit on the total dollar amount an individual may give to political candidates and committees.But Thomas, seen by many as the court’s most conservative justice, wrote a concurring opinion that both represented the decisive vote in the 5-4 decision, and beckoned the justices to go further.Thomas...

The most important thing Thomas has done is recognize that judges are supposed to interpret the constitution as written, not to legislate from the bench. This is a fairly abstract idea both for 3rd-graders and modern liberals. I need suggestions for fleshing out this idea. The wife nixed my...

In a series of provocative and insightful comments about race that were first reported by Yahoo! News and confirmed by several people who attended the talk and heard the remarks firsthand, Thomas dropped a few bombshells. This got people's attention...

    On February 11, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas told students at Palm Beach Atlantic University that "northern liberal elites" did and said worse things to him than did citizens of Savannah, Georgia during the heyday of segregation. According to the Daily Mail, Thomas observed that the focus on race in the United States has actually become heightened instead of lessened through the years: "My sadness is that we are probably today more race-conscious than I was in the 1960s when I went to school."

And I don't like the idea of a columnist being Mau-Mau'd out of a job because he's a casual bigot. The smarmy-sounding Fred Hiatt defense—that Cohen "isn’t afraid to take on subjects where culture and politics and emotion overlap"—isn't entirely wrong.

    Juan Williams is one of America’s best journalists. He’s also an accomplished author and historian of the civil rights movement. Among his achievements: * a biography of Supreme Court Justice (and civil rights litigator) Thurgood Marshall: American Revolutionary; * Eyes on the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965; and * Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate. So it’s especially telling, I think, to hear what Williams thinks of the smear campaign against Herman Cain. Williams appeared on Fox News’ Hannity Friday night, and his outrage and disappointment was palpable. Juan Williams: The whole idea is he’s a token; he’s a...

    Herman Cain does not have an automatic ticket to the Republican nomination. Nobody does. But Cain deserves to be heard like any other candidate, without being persecuted and witch-hunted by the mob media. Conservatives have stood by while two magnificent women candidates, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman, were trashed, insulted, threatened, and verbally abused by leftist mudslingers over months and even years. Today, the radical leftist media expect to pick both candidates, Republicans and Democrats, and they will stop at almost nothing to get their way. This transforms American politics into a one party political machine. Mobocracy could injure the...

    It’s Caingate Day 5, and we still don’t know what Herman Cain is supposed to have done wrong or who claimed he did it. Never have so many said so much about so little. Why is that? TheDC’s Matthew Boyle reports: “Since Politico first reported the existence of past sexual harassment accusations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, that publication — along with every other that claims to have learned the identities of the women involved — has refused to publish them. Regardless of whether the allegations against Cain are true or false, or whether they land in some nether...

    No one who followed politics 20 years ago will forget the night when Clarence Thomas sent an electric charge through a Senate hearing room. As liberal Democrats pushed the unproven sexual harassment charges of Anita Hill, in an attempt to destroy Thomas's chance to serve on the Supreme Court, Thomas called them out for conducting a national disgrace. "This is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves." This line packed a wallop because Hill's charges were about as proven as the old charges of perverted indecency against white women that were concocted...

    A black conservative is snared in a brewing harassment scandal. Herman Cain’s settlements to avoid sexual harassment claims in the 1990s have caused conservatives to recall the confirmation fight of the other most notable black conservative – Clarence Thomas – who barely achieved confirmation 20 years ago last month. Thomas called his ordeal – accused of harassment by Anita Hill and impugned during perhaps the most bruising Senate confirmation hearings of recent memory by top Democrats like Sen. Edward Kennedy and now-Vice President Joe Biden – a “high tech lynching.” A political action committee that backs Herman Cain but is...

    conservative black man from Georgia faces unproven allegations of sexual harassment as he rises to prominence. Sounds familiar to us older conservatives....but there is a generation out there who is wholly unfamiliar with the story. I urge us FREEPers to teach the kids we know about how this balderdash is really nothing new...just the same crap being doled out against someone who refuses to live on the Liberal Plantation.

    Herman Cain was in the center of a firestorm, largely of his own making, yesterday. He knew before he entered the presidential race that he had a sexual harassment settlement in his past. He knew, ever since Politico started questioning his campaign, that a story was afoot. He knew he had to get the story out quickly and truthfully. And yet, by the end of the day, the business executive peddling his leadership skills and know-how looked somewhat like the hapless PBS executive who eventually got ousted for screwing up the Juan Williams firing. ...

    Exclusive: Two women accused Cain of inappropriate behavior By: Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman and Anna Palmer and Kenneth P. Vogel October 30, 2011 08:00 PM EDT During Herman Cain’s tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, at least two female employees complained to colleagues and senior association officials about inappropriate behavior by Cain, ultimately leaving their jobs at the trade group, multiple sources confirm to POLITICO. The women complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Cain that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave...
