Shooting down firebaggers & teabaggers one truth at a time...
Homey the Clown
Men on Vacation
East Hollywood Squares
That show was definitely appointment tv. I still rock my Homey t-shirt. Remember when Fox’s lineup was daring and playful? Yeah, neither does the network.
So Diahann Carroll is signed for Raisin too. Should be interesting http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_THEATER_A_RAISIN_IN_THE_SUN?SITE=AZMES&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT
Fox gave us Living Single, Martin and NY Undercover which was MUST SEE TV in the 90s.
Ok! I watched all those show s in their first run, ESP. NY Undercover. Loved that show!
Fox made their money off black shows then turned into the racists nuts they are today.
That seems to be the pattern with startup networks because the CW used the exact same playbook.

I said the same thing to some friends earlier. The other players and coach knew about this all along, they thought the secret was safe.
Uncle SK @SKtheGawd23s
This is a distraction at eagles camp cuz all the white players AND chip Kelly were with Riley Cooper at the concert…
Really?! **Sips tea**
I have wondered why that fact somehow got lost along the way to here…..It is not lost on me that this pervasive piling on by the media JUST on Riley is to deter attention away from the fact that the Head Coach knew about this all along as did the other white players on the team.
It makes sense though. On the video there were some random people around him.
He actually was talking about a black security guard and something that is not being said but I have been reading about on Deadspin is that Riley is going to have a rough season. Other black players don’t feel the way Vick does.
Also, apparently, folks believe that Andy Reid would have been tremendously tougher on him.
Read here at the link: http://deadspin.com/lesean-mccoy-on-riley-cooper-i-cant-respect-a-guy-li-992365509
LeSean McCoy is not feeling him.
Yep, I read Shady’s comments yesterday…he’s not having it.
this is the latest I believe (as far as player reactions):
Just read that. It is actually worst than I thought.
Cooper’s a receiver. He is going to get lit up.
And with every hit, “so you going to fight me now?”
Like I said yesterday. Cooper’s going to get plenty of chances to prove his negro fighting skills.
He might want to fake a concussion or something so he can sit out.
Vick is just trying to be politic. He ont mean a word he said. Cooper better get traded b/c that locker room dynamic with him is gonna be awful. This is just as much the coach’s faut as it is Cooper’s. He knew it happened and should have nipped it in the bud to keep team cohesion. How are you gonna be able to coach a TEAM when the members are in factions? The white players are gonna go in their corner and the black one theirs and game play suffers. Total lack of leadership.
After reading the article below from Miranda’s comment, Vick was definitely diplomatic and trying to keep the atmosphere and locker room calm.
Bur he is essentially giving up on that front now, because there are plenty of hurt feelings.
Well, way to destroy a team. One of the white players at the concert must have spilled the beans though.
It was on video…
Riley needs to go. Besides, from a ‘football’ perspective, Riley wouldn’t be there if Jeremy Maclin wasn’t on injured reserve.
From a ‘let’s get a team working together’ perspective, Chip Kelly and the other teammates who were at the SAME CONCERT got some ‘xplainin’ to do…
Here’s a video that comes to mind that they might use in their “counseling.”
From my favorite commentator on race, Jay Smooth. He did a TED talk at Hampshire College.
Someone took the video on his/her phone though. Riddle me this, new Coach Kelly: you had what was a bonding outing with the white players of the team, is such an event planned for the nonwhite players as well? BBD are coming on August 8 and Keith Sweat on August 18. You in?
Skip the coach, I wanna go!
Ha! Be his cultural emissary. Go on now!
Chip Kelly lost any cool points he might have had. Left Oregon in probation and now can’t control his players or locker room. Burnt up before he even gets started in NFL.
Oh, really now??? Well, well, well.
Miranda – - -UPDATE: – - -Aaron Hernandez – - -
— -Aaron Hernandez says he’s ‘not guilty’ in jailhouse letter – -
- – - – -Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been in jail for just over a month now, which apparently has been long enough for the him to take on a pen pal.
A man named Karl recently sent a letter to Hernandez and Hernandez actually wrote him back. The letter Hernandez wrote was obtained by TMZ and verified as real by law enforcement officials.
In the letter, Hernandez says that he’s ‘NOT GUILTY’ and that ‘all the people who turned on me will feel like crap.’
Here’s the complete contents of the letter:
Karl and Hernandez may not be pen pals for long. Hernandez closed the letter by asking his new pen pal to “keep this off social media,” there’s a good chance the letter’s going to make it on social media now that Karl has made it public.

I want to gather all of Keith Boykin’s stats together.
Did you know that you can’t buy seasons of In Living Color in its original format on Amazon or anywhere? At least you couldn’t a couple of years ago. Apparently FOX refused to pay the royalties for the songs used at the beginning and with the Fly Girls. Also, there are words and parts of the show that have been censored. What is sold is a watered down version of the show.
I don’t know if this has changed recently.
Wow, that sucks. I wonder if Keenen signed away his rights/ever had them to begin with.

Winfrey joined Cory Booker in Jersey City for the Thursday fundraiser, where donors paid between $1,000 and $2,600 a head.
Meanwhile, in Newark where Booker is mayor, three candidates competing against Booker answered written questions from the audience about Social Security, Medicare and civil rights issues. Newark NAACP President Deborah Gregory said it would have been great if Booker had brought Winfrey to the forum.
Booker’s Democratic opponents criticized him for raising money instead of answering questions.

Thanks Miranda and Keith Boykin.
He’s really been breaking it down today.
Maybe he stumbled upon what today’s MSM BS spin would be and/or saw the same woman I did on CBS.
The Assman’s hahahahahaha!!!
Glenn Greenwald sounds just like Rand Paul.
Oh, Andrea Mitchell is asking him about gay rights in Russia?
“He [Snowden] got forced to stay there by the United States”
HA! What is he saying? How is he excusing that?
GG (rough paraphrase) was saying the anti-gay rights law was horrible. But when you’re seeking asylum, you don’t get to pick a “civil rights/liberties nirvana.” Snowden’s not there because he agrees with their lack of civil liberties, but he’s there because of “the persecution of him by the United States.”
Made my day. What an utter utter hack.
Yep. When you “yabut” on an issue that is supposed to be so essential to your core, you clearly demonstrate that you in fact have no core or belief system. No doubt, his older family members didn’t laud him defending a Neo-Nazi. How will “family” react to his excusing Russia?
He’s a straight up hack. So now all of a sudden civil liberties aren’t important? What a f-ing clown.
It’s only ok because lucky for GG Snowden is straight.
I forgot who said it yesterday but someone really needs to pressure Greenwald and ask him to visit Snowden.
Where are the Clarks, Aravoses [sic], and Chois on this?
GG ain’t stupid. He knows not to fukk with Putin.
And that’s the point isn’t it?
These idiots have painted themselves in a corner.
You know Snowden’s going to have a press conference. I just wish someone would ask him about the situation with journalists and activists being killed, locked up, etc. in Russia when he pops his head up out of his hole.
Let’s see how much civil liberties and free speech matter then.
Or as Lefty Driesell would say, he may be dumb but he’s not stupid. I think he’s so blinded by his hate that logic hasn’t seen itself in his mind in quite a long time.

The vote capped off several days of work in the House on bills aimed at reining in government regulation and government overreach.House Democrats cast the votes as merely for show, given opposition from the White House and the Senate majority.

Luke Russert is the Golden Boy of This Town And it drives young journalists crazy
BY NOREEN MALONE
…BC brass is rather protective of Russert. When we had lunch, the network sent a minder to sit in on the meeting—not a typical procedure for someone with mid-level name recognition, and particularly unusual for a journalist in the business of asking difficult questions of others.
MSNBC has (idly) threatened to dock airtime for writers at publications
who have criticized him. Russert doesn’t exactly rebel against their
protection. When I emailed him directly with some follow-up questions,
the publicist replied instead.
…To be a pet and acolyte of the older generation’s establishment figures
doesn’t exactly endear him to his contemporaries. If there is a “mayor”
of his generation’s Washington, it is the careful Ezra Klein, who, as his own MSNBC career began to take off, reached out to Russert after his father’s death to make amends for a much-quoted crude tweet he’d written about Tim Russert (which Klein said was taken wildly out
of context). Russert was not receptive. “I do not have a professional or
social relationship with Ezra Klein,” he told me (through the
aforementioned spokesperson) when I asked about the exchange.
These mediocre people in the beltway…and it really has had a bad effect on this country’s democracy.
Born on home plate yet swears he rounded it all by himself. What a pampered nitwit. When he first made the scene, I was talking to someone who knew Lil Luke as her son’s opponent on a prep school playing field. She said he was nasty and a snot as a young man. Plus ca change.
I was tha-rough (as GLH would say) after the passage about his “mentors:” Brokaw, Todd. Done I tell ya.
The thought that someone looks up to Chuck Todd is chilling.
That’s why he has his cushy job.
They don’t want real journalists on tv just GOP stenographers.
Nah he has a cushy job because of his daddy.
True. Being Tim Russert’s son got him the job but it isn’t what is keeping him there.
If that guy was a real journalist Tim’s son or not he wouldn’t be there.
They love him because he’s willing to go along and spew the same Washington falsehoods the others do.
Yep. He’s nothing more than an ass kisser.
For a little bit of contrast, where is Matt Taibbi’s show on NBC?
He’s the son of an NBC news veteran too.
I don’t always like the guy’s opinion but there is no doubt he’s the real deal as a journalist and doesn’t play that Washington game.
LOL —-TyrenM —-Thank ya. :>) – - -LOL
Ezra Klein’s not much better with his fake centrism. TBH this is a set of infotainers who have had a terrible effect on the country’s access to information.
Luke’s mean and aggressive.

– - -US issues travel alert over al Qaeda threat after briefing Congress —
– - -The State Department issued a worldwide travel alert on
Friday over the threat of a potential al Qaeda terrorist attack.
The State Department’s travel alert said the threat was focused particularly in the Middle East and North Africa and was “possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula.” “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond,
and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the travel alert said. – -
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she, her staff and other congressional leaders have been briefed by the administration on the situation. She declined to offer specifics, but suggested the travel advisory was installed for good reason.

So now travel advisories are just like plastering a fucking threat meter on every news show FOR SIX FUCKING YEARS? Fuck you thoroughly.
GN —”YA-BUT” — – –
— -Glenn Greenwald’s Spin on the Benghazi attack – –
— – -In an awful article the latest addition to the CIF rogues gallery claims that presenting the attack as motivated by “anger over an anti-Muhammad video completely absolves the US government of any responsibility or even role in provoking the anti-American rage driving it.” He is referring to ultra
extremist salafis who had previously attacked non-salafi Libyans and sufi shrines, clearly Glenn is projecting his own opinions onto murderers. As evidenced by how the attack was planned on 911, it’s clear they were motivated by Al-Qaeda ideology and to suggest that the US “provoked” them and has “responsibility” is nothing more than apologia for fascism. Adults are responsible for their actions, someone unsympathetic to Al-Qaeda ideology or the ambassador’s murderers has no need to argue that brown people have no agency. Its even worse since he began by condemning the shooting of Bin Laden. True GG wanted him to be tried, which isn’t the same as sympathy for Osama; but he portrays the shooters as bad guys who did something illegal, not men who were provoked. – -
GG is nuts. He blended in to the justified anger at the Bush admin’s excesses and wars of choice, but he’s truly out there IMO.

While testifying at a state legislative meeting Hillsdale College President Larry Arnn called the students “dark ones” while talking about how the school meets diversity challenges. – -["DARK ONES!!?? --Wha'??]
The subcommittee hearing was held to determine if Hillsdale College
would adopt Common Core State Standards, which come as an effort to standardize education across the states. Arnn was there to testify against the idea, and express his opposition to government interference in education.
The president was referencing a letter sent to the college from the Department of Education, citing that Hillsdale violated the national standards for diversity.
During his testimony Arnn said, “And they [Department of Education] said that we violated the standards for diversity because we didn’t have enough dark ones, I guess is what they meant.”

Yet, after considerable backlash, the president has now issued an apology for his racial remarks.

Robin Thicke Says Now White People Wanna ‘Claim’ Him After ‘Blurred Lines’
August 2, 2013 by PJ
According to Robin Thicke, his song “Blurred Lines” is such a hit that White folks are trying to “claim” him again.
Thicke has released a few hits in the past including “When I Get You Alone” and “Lost Without You,” but “Blurred Lines” is his biggest single to date.
When talking with the “The Breakfast Club,” Robin teased that the best way to measure his success is the type of fans he’s pulled in. “The biggest thing I think is [the success] internationally. I never had any love internationally. Being #1 in like 80 countries,” Robin said. “I think the biggest thing in America is that now White people finally got on it. White people are trying to claim me.”

What’s said is some times taxpayers pay for these over the top stadiums. When Walker was the Milwaukee county executive he had a midnight meeting that resulted in taxpayers footing the bill for the Brewers new stadium. They’d rather spend taxpayers money on shit like this instead of improving schools and infrastructure. SMH!
As much as I love sports this is insane…that hookup is better than a lot of pro facilities..just crazy.

VIDEO: House GOPer Won’t Push Back on Birther Calling Obama “Communist Despot”
By Tim Murphy | Fri Aug. 2, 2013 9:16 AM PDT
Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) is no John McCain.
At a town hall forum in her district on Monday that was sponsored by a local tea party group, Roby was asked by an attendee what she would do to counter the supposed abuses of President Barack Obama, whom the man described as ineligible for office, a communist, and a tyrant. Here’s how the fellow put it: “What I need from you is to know what you can do, you and your fellow non-communist colleagues in the lower House, what you can do to stop these communist tyrannical executive orders laid down by this foreign-born, America-hating communist despot?”
After the room erupted in laughter and supportive applause, Roby responded with a smile: “Thank you for your question—he said it loud enough that you all heard it.” Roby did not push back on the questioner’s claims. Instead, she validated his fears. “Look I can’t emphasize the oversight part of my job enough,” she said. “And I think that that gets lost in what we do every day, because that’s exactly what we’re doing—we’re chasing down these executive orders, we’re chasing down these rules that are promulgated, that are backdoor legislation, whether it’s the EPA, the IRS, go down the list.”

Not only does Grimes hold a slim 44%-42% lead over McConnell, but she leads by 7 points with Independents, and Grimes has a 33 point lead with moderates,56%-23%. McConnell is running close to Grimes because of his advantage in name recognition, but when that advantage is taken away by asking voters who know both candidates the races moves heavily into the Democrat’s favor.
This chart from The Mellman Group says it all:

Aravosis is having a tantrum at us:
Are you 3 high or stupid? “Aravosis” hasn’t criticized Russia on gay rights? Ask @stoli about that. Heh. (@GN192 @problemwthat @PragObots)
.@GN192 @problemwthat @PragObots And @ltdanchoi got beaten up by the Russians, u stupid pathetic gay-hating racist fucks. What have u done?
Whatever. I just told him to go play in traffic, as the context should have been clear (none of these people seem to have had a thing to say about Snowden/GG embracing Russia). Just don’t have the energy for this type foolishness at the moment.
“Gay-hating racist fucks”… there wasn’t anything homophobic or racist in your comment .
WTF is he screeching about? All he had to do was answer the question.
He’s just a lunatic:
@M_Shale they’re racist gay-haters who are still angry we pushed potus on gay rights
And like the far right, is now getting off on calling us “racist.” Nasty bit of business.
First of all he needs to look up the definition of racist. Second, there was nothing in the tweets to indicate any hate of homosexuals.
This is his M.O., seriously he’s a jackass.
I agree, I actually saw in in person. Please see my post above.
It seems that to some in the gay community being black equals hating gays. Tells a lot about the mindset of those who insisted that blacks should support their cause simply because they raised money and voted for PBO but are silent when it comes to issues concerning our communities..
Really?? Pragmatic Obots has never said anything anti gay. I saw Aravosis was on a panel after the performance of the musical Candide. He did have much to say about they play. He just kept complaining about Obama, and how the Obama supporters were the people in power and were supressing critics. Here is some background in Candide there is a production number about an auto da fa. He prety much compared Obama supporters to the officials burning people during the Spanish inquisition.
Also may I add his knowledge of theater and music is appalling.
OMG, he is a complete lunatic. Thank you for the tea malletgirl!
If the President can be asked about all things negro, John can and should be asked about all things gay. You wanted to be the spokesman, don it. First I have heard about Choi being beaten up. The things you learn in 140 characters.
Not even pasting the link to this:
Google search pressure-cooker saga just proves how much the NSA is fueling paranoia
So blogs and magazines publish wildly irresponsible, unproven, and poorly researched propaganda, then look to blame something or someone else when their shitty stories fall apart and make them look stupid. Blogs used to fact-check the national media. Many of the bigger ones are now indistinguishable from the beltway’s worst excesses. Just a total utter and complete fail.
“Many of the bigger ones are now indistinguishable from the beltway’s worst excesses.”
YEP! I’ve noticed it a lot since PBO entered office. Everything they claimed NOT TO BE, THEY ARE.
Precisely. These are the same people who (IMO rightfully) ran 911 truthers out on a rail because those conspiracy theories didn’t meet factual standards when Bush was in office. But will print up ANY GARBAGE about PBO’s admin and the federal government under PBO. It’s so transparent.
Evening thread is up!
