Now I don't know who gets these guys to be talking-heads on cable news shows, but we probably should be careful who we legitimize by putting on main stream television.
Turns out that Mr. Taaffe is a virulent racist, who has made no bones about making his feelings known in the past. (Kind of like our boy Ted Nugent.)
"Before Taaffe was a talking head on HLN, he was probably best known for hosting “Standing Our Ground,” a white-supremacist podcast that took on such important issues as when it’s OK for white people to use the “n-word.” Liberal think tank Political Research Associates did the brave work of going through the podcast’s archives and came up with a clip of Taaffe repeatedly calling Oprah Winfrey a “n*gger.”
While his co-host did not think it was “appropriate” to use that word to describe the media mogul, Taaffe did not hesitate.
'Yeah, she’s a n*gger because she keeps spewing out all that bullshit. She goes over to Switzerland and she says that the lady didn’t want to share a handbag because she thought that she couldn’t afford it, and she keeps just doing what she’s doing. She keeps stirring the pot. She keeps trying to promote her boy Obama. You know, Obama could do no wrong. You know, it’s birds of a feather, they flock together and stick together, and to me, she’s a n*gger. Oprah Winfrey’s a n*gger. She ain’t a n*gga, she’s a n*gger.”So, now you know just a little bit more about the man that HLN has on its new programs, defending men who shoot and kill black teenagers." [Source]
Finally, I have always enjoyed visiting Atlanta. (Visiting) I have friends there, and it's a nice enough place to visit. (Visit) After my stay, I invariably hop on over to Hartsfield and fly the friendly skies home.
A couple of stories out of the state where Atlanta is located has solidified my position that it is a nice place to visit. (Visit)
Sorry my friends, unfortunately Atlanta is in the state of Georgia.
"A Georgia teenager was fatally shot by a cop last Friday. She claimed he pointed a gun at her, eyewitnesses said he was just holding a Wii remote, which very much does not look like a gun. Christopher Roupe was at home when a police officer knocked on the door to serve warrant to his dad for probation violation.
And witnesses said when Roupe opened the door, he was holding a Wii remote and the officer immediately shot him in the chest.
One neighbor said that he saw the officer “sobbing” in front of the house after she shot Roupe. He said that “supposedly, [Roupe] opened the door with a BB gun,” but it just looked like he was playing Wii inside with his friends.
The officer in question, who is not being identified publicly, has been placed on administrative leave." [Source]
That is not cool. A damn kid can't even play in his home without being shot and killed by the po po who lack proper training.
And you Negroes in Georgia better get ready to be pissed off as you make your daily commute. Those good ole boys are going to make the South rise again if it kills them.
"Georgia officials have once again approved a specialty license plate featuring the Confederate battle flag, infuriating civil rights advocates and renewing a debate among those who believe the symbol honors Confederate heritage and
The Georgia division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans requested the new plate design, and the Georgia Department of Revenue recently approved it. The group's old plate had a small Confederate battle flag. The new one features an additional, larger image in the background that covers the entire plate.
Spokesman Ray McBerry said the group meant no offense and views the plates as a way for people to honor their heritage.
"We believe that everyone has the right to preserve their heritage," he said. "Southerners have as much right to be proud of their heritage as anybody else.'" [Source]
Imagine the outrage if a German living in New York was granted the privilege of having a specialty license plate featuring the swastika.
Of course the Germans, bless their hearts, have actually outlawed the symbol in Germany.
We could learn a lot from those Germans here in America.
