Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk where pro-Russian militants have taken over government buildings were told they have to “register” with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia, according to Israeli media.

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay…

For the millionth time, the Confederate flag is a symbol of hate

For the millionth time, the Confederate flag is a symbol of hate

PROTESTERS SHOW CONFEDERATE AND US FLAGS AT PRO RENO RALLY.

Drudge tries to bait the white victim class w/ the headline:

High School Students Suspended Indefinitely For Bringing Confederate Flag To School…

Good.

White supremacy is the only reason for flying the Stars and Bars. And don’t give me the “Southern pride” rationale. I’m a native Southerner and the flag is an embarrassment.

John Rocker is ‘sick and disgusted’ by Hank Aaron

John Rocker is ‘sick and disgusted’ by Hank Aaron

rocker

I don’t agree with Hank Aaron’s statement implying opponents of President Obama are comparable to the Klansmen of generations past. I don’t think The Hammer meant to say that, to be honest. Later in that same interview Aaron said race relations have improved in America but there was still a “long ways to go.”

John Rocker proves him right.

His comments were deplorable and unbefitting of baseball’s…

Stupidest comment of the week

Stupidest comment of the week

And the week’s just one day old.

The floor is yours, Gov. Huckabee:

Fox News personality and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee stunned a New Hampshire crowd on Saturday by likening the federal government’s treatment of airport passengers to the totalitarian regime of Kim Jong-un.

‘My gosh, I’m beginning to think that there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United…

Limbaugh loves Louie

gohmert

Miserable human being Rush Limbaugh calls Texas dipshit Louis Gohmert “a fearless fighter” and “one of our all-time favorite members of the House of Representatives.”

No surprise, since Gohmert is one of the stupidest Congressmen in history.  The Houston Press has a summary:

  • While discussing the putative reality that caribou, for some reason that only a rural Texan representative could fathom, en…

Back in 2006, when the GOP was trying to pass a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, Georgia Congressman Phil “John  C. Reilly will look like me in 20 years” Gingrey went to the House floor to argue that America’s image was at stake.

“This is probably the best message we can give to the Middle East in regards to the trouble we are having over there right now,” Gingrey saidin support of…

Conservative blowhards declare war on Colbert

Conservative blowhards declare war on Colbert

colbert

Miserable human being Rush Limbaugh on the Colbert hire:

CBS has just declared war on the Heartland of America.  No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives.

Now it’s just wide out in the open.  What this hire means is a redefinition of what is “funny” and a redefinition of what is comedy, and they’re blowing up the 11:30 format under the guise…

On the Facebook page demanding Brandeis University rescind an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali — the Somali-born activist who brought attention to the barbaric practices against women within Islamic fundamentalism, such as honor killings and female genital mutilation — commenters are reminded, “We expect tolerance of anyone who comments/participates with this page.”

Billionaire Tesla founder Elon Musk doesn’t like Mike Judge’s new HBO show “Silicon Valley”:

“I really feel like Mike Judge has never been to Burning Man, which is Silicon Valley,” Musk said. “If you haven’t been, you just don’t get it. You could take the craziest L.A. party and multiply it by a thousand, and it doesn’t even get fucking close to what’s in Silicon Valley. The show didn’t have any…

Chris Rock, and not just because black audiences deserve a funny host on late night TV. (Arensio, the black Dave Coulier, ain’t it.)

Rock has already proven he can do it, hosting a critically acclaimed show on HBO from 1997-2000.

Plus, it would keep him from having to…
