Racially Obsessed Washington Post columnist: We have spent a century pretending slavery never even happened

Liberals love being perpetual victims. Eugene Robinson being a prime example

Hollywood has finally taken an unflinching look at slavery. It’s past time for the rest of the country to do the same.

I wanted to wait a few days before writing about the best picture Oscar for “12 Years a Slave” to see if it still felt like an important milestone. It does. Academy Award recognition for one well-made movie obviously does not make up for a century of pretending that slavery never happened. But perhaps the movie industry’s top prize can give impetus to the efforts of artists and scholars who are beginning to honestly confront this nation’s original sin.

We tell ourselves that we know all about slavery, that it’s ancient history. But we’ve never fully investigated its horrors, which means we’ve never come to terms with them, which means we’ve never been able to get beyond them. Where slavery is concerned, we are imprisoned by William Faulkner’s famous epigram: “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”

The success of “12 Years a Slave” may be a significant step toward our collective liberation.

I suspect nothing will ever “liberate” Leftists like Robinson. Folks like him love to pretend America is still an inherently racist nation. They are absolutely addicted to acting like oppressed victims. I wish Robinson and others WOULD move past their addiction to victim hood, but frankly, I doubt they ever will. 

Hell freezes over as MSNBS tool apologizes for being a tool

Martin Bashir said some very nasty things about Sarah Palin last week, and either his bosses, or Bashir himself decided he went too far. Donald Douglas has Bashir’s apology I will leave it to you to decide how heartfelt it is. To me it sounded less scripted than most apologies we hear today, so maybe Bashir actually means it


Why does the truth upset Liberals so much? Via Big Hollywood

Wow! Whoopi is pretty upset there This is the problem with Liberals, they are emotionally unstable. they are, apparently, incapable of THINKING before speaking. All Whoopi saw was that Bachman mentioned slavery, and her mind shut off and raw emotion took over! You see, you cannot speak of slavery to a Liberal unless you make very carefully crafted statements about slavery. Anyone who mentions slavery to a Liberal risks being accused of glorifying , excusing, or wanting to return to slavery.

And by the way, the pledge mentioned does NOT seek to ban pornography. Yet another point the bimbos on The View got wrong.

Sex slaves? Radical Muslims prefer blondes

Pure evil

In a story almost too twisted to believe, female Kuwaiti activist and former parliamentary candidate Salwa al-Mutairi endorses the establishment of a law permitting the sex-slave trade.  Who would the sex slaves be? Infidel women, of course — allegedly blonde ones from Russia.  Because, apparently, Muslim men “prefer them blond.”

According to Mutairi, female infidels, who she considers “subhuman,” would be paid a whopping 50 dinars a month to cook, clean and care for the children — essentially become the wife’s domestic slave by day — then work another long shift as the husband’s personal sex slave by night.  Since forced sex with slaves is not considered adultery, sharia law condones the keeping of concubines as a way to encourage men not to “stray” from home.

More from Nonie Darwish, who quotes a slightly sarcastic Al Arabiya article about “preference,” at FrontPage:

A Kuwaiti woman who is called an “activist” and former candidate to the Kuwaiti parliament, spoke to the Kuwait Times about the establishment of a new law permitting men to buy and sell non-Muslim girls, captured in jihad, as sexual slaves in order to protect Muslim men against seductive sexual immorality. The Arabic Al Arabiya had more details on what that woman, Salwa al-Mutairi, is advocating:

Ms. Mutairi who was nice enough to put the minimum age of 15 for slave girls, Christian Jews or other, to be sold. She demanded the immediate establishment of slave agencies just like agencies for maids, where the slave girls will earn a whopping 50 Kuwaiti Dinar monthly and in return will cook, clean, take care of the kids and be the slave of the wife during the day. But her job does not end there; at night, whenever Mutairi is not in the mood, then her husband will not stray too far away from the house, since it is halal (kosher) for the husband to have sex with the slave girls without any marriage or unnecessary paper to satisfy his sexual pleasures. Better do it at home under the watchful eyes of the wife and kids only for 50 Dinars. Wow, what a deal!

Can you get any more evil?


Harry Reid your Historical Illiterate of the Day

Oh my goodness, but Senator Weasel Dick really showed how freaking pathetic he is today. Via American Glob who asks the musical question Is Harry Reid getting desperate or is he just really stupid? Why BOTH of course! It is all about the RAAAAACISM!

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago.”

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago.”

“The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.”

“Senate Republicans on Monday called Reid’s comments “offensive” and “unbelievable.”

“But Reid argued that Republicans are using the same stalling tactics employed in the pre-Civil War era.”

“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ’slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,” Reid said Monday. “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said ’slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough.’”

“He continued: “When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted they simply, slow down, there will be a better day to do that, today isn’t quite right.”

Well, someone took an overdose of Hyperbole Pills didn’t they? Go ahead Harry, yank out that Slavery Card, the Women’s Suffrage Card, and whatever other card you have. The fact is Senator Weael Dick, your side is WRONG on this issue.

For you to, in anyway, imply that your attempt to steal away the freedom of the American people to choose their health care coverage is comaprable to freeing slaves or enfranchising women is complete and utter BS! In fact,  Senator, it is YOU, and Pelosi, and the rest of you ilk who are trying to enslave Americans. Enslave them to the government for their health care Harry!

Senator, let me make myself perfectly clear, it sickens me that a Marxist fool such as you is a United States Senator, until the next eletion anyway, those poll numbers are looking BAD for you Senator. The Founding Fathers would be irate that a miscreant such as yourself had been elected to any office, much less the United States Senate!

Senator, if you possess a shred of credibility, an ounce of virtue, or the least bit of respect for the oath you took as a senator, you would abide by our Constitution, and the wishes of your constituents. You DO remember them Senator? The people who elected your worthless hide? Yes, senator, yes, it is your DUTY, as if you have any idea what that word means, your DUTY, to listen and OBEY your constituents! Yes, OBEY, you are their servant, they are your bosses! You MIGHT know this if you ever actually read the Constitution Senator.

Update!! Wondering if Stacy McCain will credit me for spelling RAAAAACISM correctly? Obviously not, man, I might actually pull for Texas to beat Bama now……
