  • George Takei: An Intellectually Honest Liberal in a Dishonest Tribe

    The conservative world exploded in outrage over George Takei's blatantly racist remark calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas "a clown in blackface," but they all got this story wrong. Takei is a very rare bird: an intellectually honest liberal. I'm not going to cover in detail what Takei said and what Justice Thomas wrote.  You can read about it here, here, and here. To sum up, Justice Thomas wrote in his dissent on Obergefell v. Hodges (the gay marriage case, for those who have hid their heads in a bag for the last two weeks) that the government doesn't bestow dignity and humanity...

    Just because Takei had the ability to memorize such great lines “Aye aye, captain,” does not mean he has any smarts. And, as far as intelligence in actors goes, Takei is no Ronald Reagan. He’s not even a Kim Kardashian As everyone who does not depend on the left wing mainstream media for news knows by now, actor and gay rights spokesman, George Takei, is not too pleased with what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his dissenting opinion in the gay marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges. Of the only black justice on the Supreme Court of the United...

    On Friday, even the hosts of NBC’s Today had enough of Michelle Obama’s effort to micro-manage people’s food choices as they mocked the First Lady’s attempt to create a healthy version of s’mores. At the top of the 9 a.m. ET hour, co-host Willie Geist explained: “So the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, and the USDA have teamed up for this program called ChooseMyPlate.gov. It's an initiative proposing a makeover, for among other things, this classic campfire treat. So instead of graham crackers with chocolate and marshmallow, they propose graham crackers with, want-wa, strawberries and low-fat yogurt.”...

    Unless, you've been living under a rock watching only Fox news in a cave, you haven't felt the wrath of Latinos and Hispanics in social media, a raging "radio bemba," the term for Latino word of mouth. Once adored and imitated by many, today, Donald Trump, is hated and scolded by major media moguls and celebrities alike for his anti-Mexican comments. Former Miss USA co-host Roselyn Sánchez and Christian De La Fuente have publicly condemned Donald Trump for his behavior and have withdrawn their support from the competition. Natalie La Rose will no longer be performing at the Miss USA...

    USA Today reported on Wednesday that TV Land, a nostalgia network that shows episodes of old TV series, has yanked “The Dukes of Hazzard” from its schedule. The series, which aired from 1979 to 1985, depicted the hijinks of the cousins Luke and Bo Duke of Hazzard County, Georgia, whose main occupation seemed to be defying authority, an occupation in which they were aided by their customized, red Dodge Charger, the better to outrun the law. The car, dubbed the “General Lee,” is what got them banned from the airwaves. The General Lee has a Confederate battle flag on the...

I really don’t care if I ever see Jeb Bush slow-jam the news on Jimmy Fallon, and needless to say I’d rather boil my skin in acid than see Hillary Clinton attempt to be funny in any way whatsoever.

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | June 26, 2015 | AWR Hawkins
    On June 26, the Huffington Post ran a column focused on how Australian comedian Jim Jefferies “shoots down [the] 2nd Amendment with humor.” A central component of this “humor” is to equate gun rights with slavery and talk about how a constitutional amendment—like the one that banned slavery—could be used to overturn the protections the Second Amendment affords to the rights of self-defense and bearing arms. After all, Jefferies makes clear that he does not believe guns are actually used for protection. And he tells an anecdotal story to explain why: I had a break in in Manchester, England where...

    Houston TV Examiner ^ | June 26, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    In the wake of the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church, America seems to be bent on eradicating even the hint of any symbol regarding the Confederacy, from removing the Confederate battle flag from public spaces to even deleting Civil War computer games. Serious people have proposed banning “Gone With the Wind” and sanitizing “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Others have advocated blowing up the Jefferson Memorial and other monuments to famous Southerners whether they had anything to do with the Civil War or not. However, if America is serious about expunging any hint of the Confederacy, it must even ferret...

    American journalists are partly to blame for the recent racist shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, because they continue to perpetuate the old southern racist myth that black Americans are a separate “race” from white Americans. Journalists seem to support the “one drop rule” or “part black all black”. For example, they continue to refer to Asian ancestry golfer Tiger Woods as “African American” even though his mother has Asian and Dutch ancestry and his father has Asian, European and North American ancestry as well as African ancestry. These racist journalists even refer to a child who has a black parent...

The story has been trending nation-wide in light of last week's tragedy in Charleston where nine people were shot and killed inside a church. Since the accused killer, Dylan Roof, was allegedly seen on a web page holding a Confederate flag, the debate over the true meaning of the flag has been thrown into question.

The latter two where Lee co-stars opposite Michael York and the late Charlton Heston are IMO the best film versions of the classic story.

    The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Jazeera America were undone by their own hubris. There’s a lesson there, but Qatar’s arrogant rulers aren’t likely to learn it. When Al Jazeera America was announced, the Qatari propaganda network was riding high. Once known as a dump for Al Qaeda videos, the Arab Spring had allowed the House of Thani to project its power across the region, toppling governments and replacing them with its Muslim Brotherhood allies. Qatar had been notorious for its ties to Al Qaeda, but those connections had done little for the oil-rich oligarchy. The Muslim Brotherhood however handed Egypt...

The atrocities in the final episode “Mother’s Mercy,” which aired Sunday, will set a high bar for season six, no question.

It’s not inconceivable that they actually believe what they’re saying but, since they don’t do news anymore, it’s just as likely that they’re simply trolling conservatives with cringeworthy...

    Two Baltimore police officers spoke through voice-altering technology to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Wednesday morning, telling her that cops are in a “reactionary mode” since the criticism of the department over the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. Violence has spiked in Baltimore since a supposed “police slowdown,” in which officers pull back from their duties when they feel a lack of city and community support. The officers said police are still responding to emergency requests, but have stopped initiating policing, instead retreating into a “reactionary mode.” “Even though you have reasonable suspicion…nine out of 10 times, that officer...

    As Black Lives Matter protesters descended on McKinney, Texas, to make the town their latest cause célèbre, one black resident spoke out to squash the racial division rhetoric. And activists want him fired for it — even after another video surfaced showing the party crashers “aren’t so innocent” after all. Benet Embry, who hosts an Internet radio show on “Deep Ellum on Air,” appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night to double down on Facebook comments he made earlier in the day in the aftermath of a viral video showing a police officer slamming a bikini-clad black teenage girl to...

    What the the expanding Lib-Left/ Entertainment Industry Conquering Army want made acceptable by the pop culture, they first legitimize It’s not the “glorification” of the devil the American Family Association and One Million Moms should be objecting to on Fox’s upcoming ‘Lucifer’ TV show, but its “legitimization” of the age old Prince of Darkness. What the the expanding Lib-Left/ Entertainment Industry Conquering Army want made acceptable by the pop culture, they first legitimize. Already successful in having legitimized mass abortion and on their way to the legitimization of Same Sex ‘Marriage’, they call their societal turnaround, “The New Norm”. To...

    Bart Simpson will be killed off in 'The Simpsons'. The cartoon schoolboy is set to fall victim to a diabolical plan by arch rival Sideshow Bob in an upcoming episode, which will be broadcast in the autumn. The show's executive producer Al Jean revealed the news during an ATX Festival panel in Texas, where he admitted he was inspired to air the dramatic scenes because he felt "frustration" when the Coyote never killed the Road Runner in the animated children's show 'Looney Tunes'.

    ESPN has damaged the credibility of the Arthur Ashe “ESPY” Courage Award by planning to give the award to reality show actor Bruce Jenner for what appears to be nothing more than an elaborate publicity stunt. Jenner claims he’s now a female character called “Caitlyn” but admits he hasn’t had, and doesn’t plan to have, an operation to change his body from male to female....I might let him get away with this farce if there weren’t much better qualified candidates for the award.

  • Media Executives Are Salivating Over Big Money Flooding the 2016 Election Cycle

    At least one small slice of the American public looks forward to the non-stop, sleazy political advertisements set to inundate viewers during the 2016 elections: media executives and their investors. Peter Liguori, the chief executive of Tribune Company, said earlier this month that the next presidential campaign presents “enormous opportunity” for advertising sales. Speaking at a conference hosted by J.P. Morgan Chase, Liguori, whose company owns television stations, referenced Super PAC spending as a key factor for why he thinks Tribune Co. political advertising revenue will rocket from $115 million in 2012 to about $200 million for the 2016 campaign...

    Just before gay marriage was legalised in Ireland, JK Rowling tweeted that she was hoping Gandalf and Dumbledore would be able to get married. Now that’s set to become a reality this weekend with LGBTQ rights activist group Planting Peace staging a wedding between the fictional wizards. The nuptials will take place in their rainbow-coloured headquarters opposite the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas. The church threatened to picket the wedding if it ever happened....

    Deadline Hollywood announced that the trailer for the latest collaboration between Steven Spielberg, one of the greatest directors of our time, and Tom Hanks, one of the world’s most popular actors, has been released. The collaboration is a film called “Bridge of Spies,” which relates the career of James Donovan, a lawyer who risked his career to defend Rudolf Able, a captured Soviet spy, in 1957, the height of the Cold War. Later, Donovan would negotiate for the release of captured U2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers, in exchange for Able. Spielberg has, for the most part, shone when...

    By now, the story of the Duggars, the family features in the reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” is all too familiar to those who follow the sordid side of the news. When Josh Duggar, now an adult, was found to have molested four of his sisters when he was an adolescent, the show was cancelled and Duggar was obliged to resign from a position at the Family Research Council. The glee with which the Left has treated the news of a fundamentalist Christian family having been found to have a dark secret has caused Sarah Palin to rouse herself...
