Barbara Curtis talks about black candidates and liberal prejudice

Pointing out this article that I read on Barbara Curtis’ Mommy Life blog this morning. She must be a carpenter because she hits a lot of nails right on the head. Here’s a snippet, but please read the entire article for yourself:

As Americans, we really need to ask ourselves how much of our opinions are due simply to media distortion. We all need to humble ourselves and pray that God will help us see through the constant manipulation of our minds to get to the truth. You must read what candidates say and never forget to measure that against what they do.

I will say one thing: the leftist media favors light-skinned liberal black people – especially those with more Anglo features. They cannot handle someone like Alan Keyes or Clarence Thomas because they look more black and they do not conform to the liberal agenda. Blacks are not allowed to think for themselves in this country.

In bygone days uppity blacks did not know their place and they were lynched. Today uppity blacks do not know their place as defined by the left and they are lynched in the media.

Alan Keyes was guilty on three counts: dark black color, Christian, and conservative – so he was even more villified by a media which thrives on savaging any Christian conservative – white or black or brown.

Mitt Romney announces at The Henry Ford Museum

It’s important to note that the announcement is being made at a museum that embodies everything that is really cool about the growing industry and technology in our country. If you are ever fortunate enough to visit the museum, you can stand before the vehicle in which John F. Kennedy was riding when he was shot in Dallas and the very bus Rosa Parks bravely became the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement.”

So why would there be a problem with his announcing at The Henry Ford Museum? The NJDC has this to say:

“NJDC is deeply troubled by Governor Romney’s choice of locations to announce his Presidential campaign. Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life. Yet he chooses to kick off his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe. Mitt Romney’s embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford’s legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney’s words or his understanding of basic American history,” said NJDC Executive Director Ira Forman.

Let’s get this straight – Democrat presidential candidate hires a Catholicophobe blogger and the left doesn’t have a problem with this. What she said in her blog should have nothing to do with the candidate (according to them).

Democrats elect a former Klansman as a senator.

Here are a few more great points from Yid with Lid:

OK so lets change the subject because Hillary is their sacred Icon and she can do NO wrong. How about other Democrats who are “Jewish Challenged” Why doesn’t the NJDC Blast them?

People like:

Congressman James “Jews control foreign policy” Moran (D-Va.)
John “I like Hezbollah” Dingell (D-Mich)

Or the Group who voted against a bill this past summer saying that Israel has a right to defend herself. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, John Conyers of Michigan, John Dingell of Michigan, Carolyn Kilpatrick of Michigan, Jim McDermott of Washington, Nick Rahall of West Virginia, and Pete Stark of California. In addition, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi removed her name as a co-sponsor of this important resolution because she didn’t want to be associated with it.

How come I never hear of the NJDC Blasting Hillary or Wesley or any of their cabal of “Jewishly” challenged representatives? But when Mitt Romney decides to make a Pro-Business declaration speech at the Ford Museum because the auto industry is badly in need of a solution….. WHAMMO! How could he do that?

Why weren’t they praising Romney when he said the following at the Herzliya conference last month?

“The war in Lebanon demonstrated that Israel is facing a jihadist threat that runs through Tehran, to Damascus, to Gaza. Hizbullah are not fighting for the coming into being of a Palestinian state, but for the going out of being of the Israeli state”

Certainly liberal Democrats wouldn’t be hypocritical?  Mitt Romney is announcing at a museum glorifying accomplishments of all Americans, not an anti-semite shrine for a man that died in 1947.

Catholicophobe, Amanda Marcotte, resigns as Edwards’ sweet blogger

Remember how she apologized. Remember how she said she didn’t mean to offend? Remember it was all in jest – satire – parody? Well, being the upstanding young gentlewoman that she is, she’s decided to step aside and allow the Edwards campaign not be tarnished by her speckled past.

She is, however, working on a new campaign!

The number of times she references Donhue, the head of the Catholic League, in her blog could lead one to wonder if she’s really attracted to the guy and has done all of this to garner his attention. Such behavior is common amongst children.

Back to her Catholicophobic blog – How will her readers take her seriously again? It was all a joke, remember? What about this latest campaign – a parody?

Oh sweet, sweet, Amanda. What a pickle you’ve gotten yourself into.

Great video here.

A fun video here!

Prince John (Edwards) Charming comes through for sweet Amanda Marcotte

What a guy

The tone and the sentiment of some of Amanda Marcotte’s and Melissa McEwan’s posts personally offended me. It’s not how I talk to people, and it’s not how I expect the people who work for me to talk to people. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but that kind of intolerant language will not be permitted from anyone on my campaign, whether it’s intended as satire, humor, or anything else. But I also believe in giving everyone a fair shake. I’ve talked to Amanda and Melissa; they have both assured me that it was never their intention to malign anyone’s faith, and I take them at their word. We’re beginning a great debate about the future of our country, and we can’t let it be hijacked. It will take discipline, focus, and courage to build the America we believe in.

And Cinderalla herself speaks up:

My writings on my personal blog Pandagon on the issue of religion are generally satirical in nature and always intended strictly as a criticism of public policies and politics. My intention is never to offend anyone for his or her personal beliefs, and I am sorry if anyone was personally offended by writings meant only as criticisms of public politics. Freedom of religion and freedom of expression are central rights, and the sum of my personal writings is a testament to this fact.

The sum of genteel Miss Marcotte’s personal writings are a testament alright. And this whole situation is a testament to a disconnection with reality.

But let’s not confuse the effect with the rationale—which is both risible and insulting. Because were it really never Marcotte’s intent to malign anyone’s faith, she probably wouldn’t have dedicated so many hate-filled blog posts to, you know—maligning anyone’s faith.

Of course it was her intent. Just as it was McEwan’s intent. And worst of all, Edwards knows it. That he has pretended to take the two at their word, in an ostentatious gesture of “trust,” is precisley the kind of staged treacle that makes people doubt the sincerity of politicians; and that both Marcotte and McEwan have assured their own personal Patriarch that they’ll behave, now that he’s promoted them to the grownups’ table, is, to put it bluntly, one of the most pathetic public surrenderings of personal integrity I’ve ever seen.

And they lived happily ever after…

Edwards and Marcotte sittin’ in a blog part II

Edwards and Marcotte sittin’ in a blog…

Ahhhh, the unholy union of John Edwards and the irrepressible Amanda Marcotte. No, it’s not a marriage – just one of the moonbattiest bloggers reporting for duty as John Edwards’ blogmaster.

This is both my first post to the Edwards blog and my announcement that I’m joining the presidential campaign for John Edwards for 2008. I’ll be taking over the job of Blogmaster (mistress?) over the course of the month of February.

The main two questions this brings up are: Why me? And why John Edwards?

Yes, indeed, why you? Do you have something on Edwards?

Michelle Malkin has wonderful coverage on this.

So Mr. Edwards – who is this lovely woman you have managing your blog?

One thing I vow here and now–you motherf*&#$rs who want to ban birth control will never sleep. I will f*&$ without making children day in and out and you will know it and you won’t be able to stop it. Toss and turn, you mean, jealous motherf*&#$rs. I’m not going to be “punished” with babies. Which makes all your efforts a failure. Some non-procreating women escaped. So give up now. You’ll never catch all of us. Give up now.

Okay, so would it be considered “irony” that Ms. Marcotte is “not going to be ‘punished’ with babies,” while Mr. Edwards has reaped all of his rewards directly from babies? We’ve got Hillary Clinton scootching past Edwards displaying her “maternal tendencies” and Edwards is employing one of the most anti-maternal bloggers on the internet. Only popcorn and Cherry Coke would complete this show.
