  • Nolte: Stephen Colbert Leads Social Justice Mob Against Kanye West

    Stephen Colbert’s Wednesday night attack on Kanye West’s sanity, followed by the late-night host’s demand that the rap superstar stop praising Trump, might have been wrapped in humor, but these tactics are as old as the Democrat Party itself. Although the approach has evolved over the centuries, Democrats have always sought to hold on to power by controlling, manipulating, and even threatening black Americans. Today, as a means to keep blacks in their place and hold on to electoral power, Democrats do what Colbert did Tuesday night — use the weapons of ridicule and the threat of social ostracization to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden recently told MSNBC's Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP wants voter identification laws for one reason. Racist Republicans so despise blacks and are so determined to oppress them, that they seek to prevent all blacks from voting. Biden said: "It's what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don't want working-class people voting. They don't want black folks voting." What Republicans "are all about," according to Biden, is the push in some states for voter ID laws, which Democrats call "voter suppression." Then-Attorney General Eric Holder characterized the call for voter ID laws as...

    PITTSBURGH - The statue of composer Stephen Foster that stood in Schenley Plaza in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood since 1940 was removed Thursday morning. Controversial for its portrayal of Foster, a Lawrenceville native, with an African American man seated below him, the bronze statue has been scrutinized as racist for years. Future of Pittsburgh's Stephen Foster statue in question Pittsburgh’s Art Commission decided with a unanimous vote on Oct. 25 that the 10x4 foot statue, which sits on a granite base, would come down within six months. Under city code, the Art Commission is responsible for overseeing the alteration, relocation or...

    Hank Azaria says he is "willing to step aside" from his role voicing Simpsons character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. It follows a documentary made by Indian-American comic Hari Kondabolu that argued the Indian character is based on racial stereotypes. Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, theactor said his "eyes have been opened" by the debate and that he never intended to cause offence. He also distanced himself from the show's controversial response. Shopkeeper Apu has been part of the long-running animation series since 1990, with Azaria adopting an Indian accent to voice him. The character is one of several voiced...

    The Nation's sports editor Dave Zirin is livid that the man who occupies the White House, courtesy of the slave-holders who devised the electoral college, is getting the credit for pardoning Jack Johnson. The African-American Johnson was an early 20th century boxing champion who also served prison time for a criminal charge. Johnson (shown in photograph) was the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion, from 1908-1915, the era of Jim Crow. He had dated and married white women, and in 1912, he was arrested for violating the Mann Act forbidding a person from transporting a woman across state lines for...

    So much for the rumored intersectionality and tolerance of the left. It turns out they can be racist and sexist when someone disagrees with them. Actor and noted liberal Tom Arnold went on the offensive on Sunday after rapper Kanye West tweeted his support for conservative commentator Candace Owens from Turning Point USA. He stated that “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” causing controversy among the liberal Hollywood and Black Lives Matter circles. Perez Hilton, Shaun White, and Tom Arnold all went after both West and Owens, but it was Arnold who attacked Owens the most. After a series...

    Half-a-century ago today, Enoch Powell gave the speech that ended his political ambitions within the British Conservative Party, but ensured that he would be a more consequential figure than any of the hack timeservers who prospered in the Tory cabinets of Edward Heath. It's known to history as "the 'Rivers of Blood' speech", which is a slight misrendering of a characteristically Powellite classical allusion - even then, in the pre-soundbite era, a risky business for a politician seeking to curry favor with the media. To mark the anniversary, BBC Radio, controversially, aired a re-enactment of the speech, read by Ian...

    Comedian Amy Schumer said her starring role in “I Feel Pretty” should have gone to a minority actress with a “harder” life story. [snip] “It’s not about an ugly, vile troll getting beautiful,” the actress said in response to critics of the movie’s premise. “It’s about a girl who really struggles with self-esteem, which is something we can all relate to. So, it just made me excited for people to see the movie. But also, I think it is fair to say that, you know, that it’s a lot harder for other people … and I recognize that I am...

    Officials at the North East Independent School District are disciplining 18 Roosevelt High School students after a student filmed his peers saying "I hate black people" and posted the video to social media. In the video, which circled social media at the beginning of the month, students appear using the n-word and saying they hated black people. Aubrey Chancellor, executive director of communications at NEISD, said a black freshman student asked his peers to say "I hate black people" in the video for a social experiment. The student did not tell his peers he would be posting the video online,...

    Trying to get objective information on what actually happened at the Philly Starbucks is like searching for a unicorn, but I'm hoping well-informed Freepers can help. Civilized people of all races should not, as far as I can see, expect to go into a restaurant and expect to be able to sit there indefinitely, or use the bathroom, if they're not paying customers -- unless, of course, that's the restaurant's business model because they think it'll attract people to sit there and ultimately spend money. Have people on this board seen reliable reports, i.e. not ideologically driven, about what happened?

    A Twitter user by the name of “Hotep Jesus” walked into a Starbucks store and received a FREE cup of coffee simply because he said “I heard y’all was racist”. Starbucks has taken major heat over the last few days after a viral video showed two black men being taken away by police after causing a scene at a Starbucks because they weren’t allowed to use the restroom. In response to this incident, Starbucks announced that they will close 8,000 stores for one day in May for an afternoon for race-bias training. Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on...

    David Horowitz’s Twitter feed was besieged after he pointed out the obvious. Left-wingers have spent the last few days attacking David Horowitz for challenging the Equal Justice Initiative and its efforts to foment anti-white racial hatred by presenting the odious practice of lynching as an exclusively white instrument of racial oppression and terror used against blacks. But history is rarely as clear-cut as radical leftist ideologues pretend.  Lynchings were carried out in an atmosphere of mass hysteria where enraged individuals acted to eliminate the perceived risk that a guilty person might go unpunished. If the black lynching victim was alleged...

    Two black men come into a Starbucks and ask to use the restroom. The manager tells them they must buy something first. They refuse and sit down at a table. The manager calls the cops and has them arrested for trespassing. They are later released with no charges. Cell phone video of the arrest goes viral. Human rights groups are livid. Charges of racism are weaponized by the legacy media to target a company and its employees. As a result, the CEO of Starbucks apologizes to the "victims" personally and closes 8,000 stores for "racial bias training." Starbucks gets what...

    <p>On Monday, George Yancy, a black professor of philosophy at Emory University, wrote a lengthy piece in The New York Times detailing the awful death threats he has received from white racists. I can sympathize -- throughout 2016, I received my fair share of death threats. But Yancy sees those death threats as representative of a deeper malignancy plaguing all of white America, not a sickness within a subset of the population. Thus, he asks, "Should I Give up on White People?"</p>

    Planned Parenthood complained that two new laws enacted in Tennessee to deny tax payer funding for abortions "hurt women of color." Sarah Wallet, the medical director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis, asserted "this legislation is racist. Women of color are especially dependent on government funding for their abortions. To deny them access to public monies for this purpose does them irreparable harm." Though the legislation does not block abortions financed by organizations or individuals using non-government sources of funding, Wallet was still adamant in her objections. "The original mission of Planned Parenthood as envisioned by founder Margaret Sanger was...
