'He's a white n***a':
Online backlash against
Snoop Dog after he posts
offensive list of reasons
not to vote for Mitt Romney

Daily Mail (UK), by Snejana Farberov

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/6/2012 4:54:58 PM

The politically incorrect rapper Snoop Dog put his two cents in the heated national debate leading up to the November election, posting online a foul-mouthed yet funny list of reasons why he would vote for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney. The 40-year-old hip hop-turned-reggae artist, who had recently changed his name to Snoop Lion, posted a photo of the handwritten list originally created by @DragonflyJonez on Friday. The number one justification for not voting for the Republican candidate is that ‘He is a white n**ga,’ followed by: ‘He looks like he says 'n**ga' all the time.’

I teach in an urban school district. Many of my students believe Romney is in the KKK. It is all about race for most black people.

Dog Poop (or whatever name he's going by) is part of the 47% that Mitt Romney was referring to.

If there were a law barring anyone with less than two operative brain cells from voting, this idiot wouldn't pass the test.

But, but, he isn't "The politically incorrect..."

He is absolutely "Politically Correct". He is for Obama and that alone matters.

He can say whatever he wants about Romney. and he knows it. The LSM will offer no objections of importance.

After the initial revulsion and indignation wear off, one cannot escape feeling compassion for the author of this ignorant, puerile obscenity. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

In the finest tradition of Blazing Saddles:

"Up yours ni**er."

If they can use it, so can I.

To hell with them otherwise.

I don't know why we filter the "N" word here. Since the real racicts use it openly, then it should be fair game for all. if it is such a terrible word, then no one should use it.

Let's not talk about the behavior of those who use it.

By the way, the KKK was represented by Sen. Byrd, a democrat..the party of Obama.

Another example of how far, far out of touch a man can be.

Gov. Romney and I are strangers, but I have worked with men with a similar background of educational and professional achievements.

Mr. Lion's implication that Gov. Romney would habitually use an offensive racial epithet sounds so far afield.

You can't go that far in business and politics, or for that matter raise such a family of decent young men, and subscribe to that kind of usage.

Just doesn't happen.

My belief is that such constructs-- name-calling and so on-- are nullified by the necessity of analysis without prejudice to get results.

Clarity like that becomes a habit, and insults and invective have no place.

Entertainers may have a kind of animal cunning, but an analytic mind, not so much.

See ladies and gentlemen this is what you get when you let drugs rot your brain. Old Calvin Broadus aka Snoop Doggy Dogg Shizzle is nothing but a washed up druggy moron who like most blacks are voting for Obowma because he is black. This despite the phoney 7.8% unemployment number the unemployment for the black community is 14.5%. Sorry Snoop but I'm not buying what you're selling. According to you and your ilk since I'm a Black conservative I guess I'm an Uncle Tom. You're a racist putz and you just need to go away.

These trash-talking Obama persons are in danger of setting themselves up. They constantly push the "norm" of decent behavior and may find themselves someday in a situation from which they cannot get out of. Some folks with more delicate sensitivities take great contempt from the constant spewing of filthy talk and subject and if these so-called "entertainers" end up in the gutter with a belly full of 9mm, they need look no further than the closest mirror to find the culprit. Wise up, N****!!

California: The View from Texas
Breitbart California, by Chuck DeVore    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/7/2014 9:58:31 AM     Post Reply
America’s biggest state is now getting its own Breitbart page. Or is it its second, counting Big Hollywood? Or its third, given Big Government’s content? If California is to make its way back to more liberty and less government--and America needs her to find her way back--then a Breitbart site dedicated to this proposition is a requisite. As part of this inaugural effort, I was asked to pen a California refugee’s perspective. Our family moved to Texas in December 2011. Moving 1,300 miles wasn’t a lightly-taken decision. Other than a couple of years working for President Ronald Reagan in the

Gallup survey suggests sign-ups
under ObamaCare not as high as

A major new Gallup survey suggests the ObamaCare sign-up numbers are not as soaring as the White House claims. The massive survey, released on Monday, shows the number of uninsured has indeed fallen to its lowest level in years, likely thanks to the Affordable Care Act. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index measured the share of adults without health insurance. That shrank from 17.1 percent at the end of last year to 15.6 percent for the first three months of 2014. The decline of 1.5 percentage points would translate roughly to more than 3.5 million people gaining coverage. But the numbers, released a

Last week´s encounter between former acting CIA Director Michael Morell and the House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence may have brought us a bit closer to the truth of how four Americans came to be killed at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and how their countrymen came to be lied to about it. But the progress toward truth was probably not made in a way that Mr. Morell intended. The encounter on Capitol Hill also made clear that the forum that will take us all the way to the truth must be something other than a

Putin Corruption Network Revealed
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Bill Gertz    Original Article

Corruption by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his administration in Moscow has produced tens of billions of dollars worth of illicit funds for the Russian leader and his top aides, according to U.S. officials. Putin is estimated to have amassed a fortune worth at least an estimated $28 billion through kickbacks from projects like construction at the Sochi Winter Olympic games, holdings in Russian real estate and energy conglomerates, and kickbacks from deals with associates going back to the late 1990s. Corruption by Putin and his inner circle is said to be pervasive and a normal part of business under his

Boehner Takes on Drudge after House
GOP Accused of Expanding Obamacare

The right-leaning news aggregation service Drudge Report accused the House Republicans and Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Sunday of quietly expanding the Affordable Care Act. That headline, with the power to inflame the Republican base against the House GOP, prompted Boehner to reach out and correct the record. He said that he and his colleagues did not expand the law, but actually repealed a portion of it. Boehner said that he and his colleagues fulfilled a promise this weekend to ‘chip away another piece” of the ACA. An aide for Boehner said that this latest move is just “one part

There is a pastime among liberal pundits — the latest is Nicholas Kristof — to quote a new center left global ranking (with unbiased titles such as “The Social Progress Imperative”) and then to decry that the United States is behind its major industrial competitors in things like “Internet Access” and “Ecosystem sustainability.” The subtext of these rants is that an illiberal, reactionary U.S. does not spend enough on government entitlements to promote parity, equality and social justice among its citizenry. These pessimistic rankings increase the angst about the American condition when viewed from scowling perches in Washington or New

“Opposing gay marriage in America today is not akin to opposing tax hikes or even the war in Afghanistan,” wrote Will Oremus, Slate’s senior tech writer in an altogether typical op-ed applauding the sacking of the “bigoted” Brendan Eich for his support of traditional marriage. “It’s more akin to opposing interracial marriage: It bespeaks a conviction that some people do not deserve the same basic rights as others.” (Snip) Distressingly few editorialists came to Eich’s defense. Like too many others, Oremus made the case that Eich’s forced departure was somehow anomalous: the tech community, being “socially liberal,” has higher standards

Co-hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan then stepped into the spotlight with a string of jokes and digs at each other, along with audience members. Bryan poked fun at Shelton, saying he and his wife, Miranda Lambert, could star on Broadway in "Beauty & the Beast." They joked about same-sex marriage (what happens you´re in a longtime relationship) and even tossed in a Miley Cyrus mention.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

A female transgender student wants an apology from a North Carolina college for being detained by a security officer and sent home for using the women’s bathroom. The 22-year-old freshman, Andraya Williams, believes she was discriminated against during a March 19 incident at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C. because of her looks. The freshman said she was leaving the restroom and going to her social studies class when a female officer stopped her and requested her student ID, according to a statement released by the Transgender Law Center. The officer then laughed while asking the student if

U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin spent the week defending his decision last weekend to attend an event in Corbin, Ky., that most attendees knew was a rally to legalize cockfighting in Kentucky. Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"
