Kenny Wayne Shepherd was stripped Thursday of his nomination for 2021 Blues Rock Artist of the Year over concerns involving the renowned guitarist and his usage of Confederate imagery. The Blues Foundation said it rescinded Mr. Shepherd‘s nomination in light of “continuing revelations of representations of the Confederate flag” on his automobile, guitars and elsewhere. Mr. Shepherd, a two-time Blues Awards winner, said in a statement the decision was made because of concerns involving a replica he owns of the “General Lee” car from the “Dukes of Hazzard” TV series. The 43-year-old blues guitarist acknowledged his Dodge Charger had


Wait'll they find out that the old cracker on the one-dollar bill was a large-scale slaveowner, and that slaves were imported into this country on ships that flew the same flag used by New America to this day, albeit with more stars on it. We're Marxist now, so the past must go. Burn, baby, burn.

The image of the Confederate battle flag must be completely eliminated from this country? Then I guess it's just a matter of time before Lynyrd Skynyrd is stripped of its two Grammys and booted from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Really? It's a CAR! What's next? Taking away awards from people because they own an Escalade or other big SUV? Punishing artists because they do not own a Prius or other virtue signaling electric vehicle? Maybe they should take away nominations if artists didn't use solar or wind power to produce their records. God forbid if you are from New York and you sing about life in Georgia or Wyoming....Cultural Appropriation....take away those nominations too... This idiocy could go on and on. How about just protecting everyone's feeling from being hurt and stop wasting time on these stupid awards that nobody cares about (except Taylor Swift so she can publicly shame her latest Ex).

I’ve had a Confederate flag for 37 years but soon after purchasing and having it on my barracks room wall, some of my tanned friends were genuinely hurt by it. Not joking. Keeping their respect and friendship was infinitely more valuable to me than this old battle flag. The 19 yr old boy who thought it represented rebelliousness had been without close black friends since he’d left Indiana in ‘79 and learned how unnecessarily hurtful it was to certain people. It got folded up and hasn’t seen light since then, but today’s FBI would guess it’s in a chest right next to a Klan robe.

The Blues Foundation? A corporate mothership for blues artists? How utterly grade A ridiculous. The blues come from the heart, the blues are the epitome of a personal form of music about a person’s life and troubles and no phony-baloney money laundering operation that calls itself a foundation has any kind of authority to say who plays or doesn’t play well.

Please remind me exactly which amendment to the Constitution guarantees Lie-Berals don't ever have to be offended. I read over my copy of the Constitution, and I just can't find it. But clearly it must be in there somewhere, since Lie-Berals seem to be eternally butt-hurt and demanding anything and anyone who offends them be "cancelled".

#12, it’s right there next to John Conyer’s beloved “good and plenty” clause. Or as Nancy Pelosi said, eyes wide with amusement and arms aflutter in her trademark imitation of a vulture, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” after being asked about the constitutionality of a bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

An Elizabeth landlord, who federal authorities sued last year alleging the landlord demanded sexual favors from tenants, was arrested Friday morning on several criminal charges “for allegedly coercing more than a dozen of his tenants into sexual acts in exchange for financial relief,” NJ Advance Media has learned. Joseph Centanni, 73, of Mountainside, was charged by the Union County Prosecutor’s Office with eight counts of second-degree sexual assault, one count of second-degree attempted sexual assault and 14 counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact between 2016 into 2020, the prosecutors office said.(Snip) Centanni, according to the prosecutor’s office, targeted male and female

The Biden administration was thoroughly embarrassed and unprepared in their first diplomatic meeting with the Chinese delegation yesterday. On U.S. soil, the Chinese mocked U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan. “Many people within the United States actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States,” top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi told the Biden administration, citing the Black Lives Matter movement. The Chinese brazenly violated protocol for their 2-minute openings, each extending their comments beyond the given time. Mr. Yang spoke for 16 minutes. Instead of refuting the comments outright–and turning the tables on China,

Can anyone just tell us who the hell is running our federal government right now? You literally get censored out of existence for suggesting that anyone other than Joe Biden won the election last November. Yet there is no evidence today—four months later—that Mr. Biden is actually serving as president. A weird Tron video this week appeared to show Mr. Biden—looking every bit the part of Max Headroom—interfacing with House Democrats in Congress. Digitally, of course. He droned on for a few minutes using scripted psycho-pablum, sitting alone at a table. The table was empty except for his instruction manual.

Former President George W. Bush said in a new interview he’s “still disturbed” by the U.S. Capitol riot. “I can’t remember what I was doing, but… I was sick to my stomach… to see our nation’s Capitol being stormed by hostile forces,” Mr. Bush told Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith. “And it really disturbed me to the point where I did put out a statement, and I’m still disturbed when I think about it. "It undermines rule of law and the ability to express yourself in peaceful ways in the public square,” he said. “This was an expression that was not peaceful.”

After 85 years of cheap hospital bills, moderate stock earnings and maturing “Christmas funds” (whatever that means), Hasbro now plans to bring Monopoly into the increasingly “woke” 21st century. The game-maker has decided to update its 16 Community Chest cards, which featured outdated prompts such as winning a “beauty contest,” actually receiving a “tax refund” or the now-rarely seen “bank error in your favor.” In their place are more contemporary cards that evoke community service and social awareness. Swaps could include a reward for “shopping local all week,” rescuing a shelter pet or helping tend the community garden.

The experimental group, meanwhile, also received 100-milligram injections of progesterone twice daily for five days
