Bachmann alludes to black genocide!

Bachmann Strikes Again
As Congress considers funding for the Nation Women's History Museum, a bit of insanity ensued. The insane remarks will not surprise you as you consider the source. Michelle "The Sky is Falling" Bachmann has again fantasized and postulated for effect. 

After constructing the last sentence with attention to keyboarding as politically correct as possible, I must follow with the straight scoop. Michelle Bachmann rose to speak to Congress with an oral cavity full of outright lies and zany utterances. Basically, Bachmann, like Rand Paul, "a bit of misinformation" is a good thing. As with Paul, we expect over the to hyperbole as core to a bundle of lies from the Minnesota Congresswoman. I posit, Bachmann's lies have reached the outer-limits of sanity, and punched into the universe of "crazy" ass liar.
“Among the most troubling examples is the museum’s glowing review of the woman who embraced [the] eugenics movement in the United States, Margaret Sanger,” the Minnesota Republican explained. “She’s an abortion trailblazer, and she is the founder of Planned Parenthood, which this body has sought to defund.”  
“Yet, the museum glosses over Margaret Sanger’s avid support for sterilization of women and abortion, and for the elimination of chosen ethic groups, particularly African-Americans, and classes of people.”
As I turn the screed over to a Raw Story report on the latest Bachmann craziness, I want to state a key point.  I doubt there is one African-American in the nation (beyond 2% of the 4% black people in the GOP) who feels  a need to have Bachmann as a guardian angel. Better yet, I assert the populace isn't at all comfortable with Bachmann as a rational person, certainly not one who would have interest in the black community. 

Also, is the African-American community a convenient populace for discussion or mention of genocide?  Is Bachmann so stuck in the GOP paradigm she cannot find other demographic groups for her flawed thinking and less than honest statement? 

Michele Bachmann ties women’s museum to ‘eugenics’ and the ‘elimination’ of blacks (via Raw Story )
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on Wednesday opposed the National Women’s History Museum by connecting it to “eugenics” and same-sex marriage. During a House debate on whether or not Congress should appoint a commission to study how to move forward…

Herman Cain Is Back. Did he Say He Might Run? [ Wrong Party Herm ]

Not only Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush emerged from virtual hibernation to reap the fruits of the 2014/2016 election cycles, another has burst into the sunlight: Herman Cain.

Yes, Cain has comeback to the cameras and seeking a place in our psyches as both political parties start to line-up their potential candidates for 2016. My thoughts on Cain were published here in 2011 and we need say much no more than we had hoped he would melt into the world to AM Radio.  Let's be real, he cannot stand like Sarah Palin, as "smug-faced and dense as granite", but we surely hoped his cerebral constipation and oral diarrhea was a thing of the past.

Oh , the extent to which we were wrong.

He has arisen, grabbed a camera on Fox News and reminded us of why we cringed with every inane utterance from the man.  The following segment is about 3.50 minutes longer than it should be, but we are unable to extract a sub-clip. We are posting the segment to provide you with clear evidence Cain's issue are long-term and he was not simply posturing for the cameras in 2011 and 2012.  The man is clearly missing a few critical pieces of gray matter.

Our specific interest is the portion of the clip at which he chastised the RNC for publishing a list of potential candidate for the GOP presidential ticket.  He exclaims, "....they are all white."  Let's view the clip and I will comment on the other side.

First things first, the Koch brothers, Fox News and Limbaugh (along with Beck) Are the central authorities in the Republican Party.  Without question eve member of the GOP is beholden and subservient to one of more of the aforementioned. Or, they run form any level of criticism and, or, scorn that might emanate from those who command media audiences. Thus, if they do the bidding of the demagoguery and the money-brokers, we ask why does O'Reilly not feel that is a central authority in the GOP? 

More important, does Herman Cain actually not realize he is affiliated with a political movement, party and paradigm that is anti-diversity.  Surely, he has to understand the reality of a political party with a racial composition of 92% white people. Such numbers are not in an way coincidental.  Why do people like Cain and other "Black Conservatives" (since they general avoid the words "African-American") fail to realize that 96% of Africa -Americans hold the GOP in contempt for a reason?  

We often show this image. And, we will continue to do so as it is a validating statement about how Cain's party feels about black people.  Is the African-American community in the eyes of the GOP as we often posit, "The Invisible Negroes?" 

Is it possible Cain doesn't realize the website outreach omission of African-American was intentional? The [point should be clear.

The GOP is not about the business of tolerance, diversity and inclusions.  Any minority visibility with the party has a strategic purpose and that purpose is grounded in subterfuge.  Michael Steele is the perfect example. Within weeks of Barack Obama's inauguration for this first term as president, what did the GOP do. Party power-brokers pulled Steel from the basement and gave him a mission, "Go get us some respect in the black community." The GOP also gave the nation Sarah Plain as a tool to combat the Democrat nomination of Barack Obama to head their ticker.  All said the latter from the GOP has turned into a national embarrassment and social horror story, not a surprise from the GOP.

Did you like me wonder about Cain's judgment in even mentioning a man who was discharged from the US Army under less than honorable conditions (West)?  What about his judgment (or desperation) in reaching for the disgraced Ben Carson as a possible GOP presidential candidate?

Ultimately, how insane is Cain to even imagine the GOP will allow an African-American as presidential candidate in the 21st Century? 

During the run-up to the 2008 General Election, I read a message on an AOL message board that is emblazoned in my grey matter. 

"White people will never elect a nigger president." 

Of course, the writer had a point as evidenced by the overwhelming exhibition of racism towards the nation's 44th President since before he took office. His comments have also been validated via GOP efforts to suppress the votes of African-Americans an Latinos. Yet, the dim-witted writer underestimated the intellect and social views of the majority of Americans (albeit it a very small majority).

That said, I feel very comfortable in my thoughts the GOP will not allow a black man or woman to head their presidential ticket until the natural changes in US demographics catches up with the Jurassic Era GOP.

US Congressional Gold Medal For Four Girls Killed Long Ago By US Terrorist

As we look back on the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1950s and 1960s, we do so with special recognition of four people who's lives were taken in a most senseless manner (terrorist bombing of  a church) and for the most despicable of reasons (racism and oppression).  They died solely based on issues of race and the struggle for equal rights among Americans. Sadly and ironically, the four people never took part in a protests, never raised a voice in anger, never asked for equal rights.  they were far too young! Their only mission on one fateful morning was with gleeful thoughts of "Youth Sunday" at their church.  

If the young people were actively involved in Youth Sunday events, think of how they may have spent their Saturday night before bedding down.  It is possible one or more of the children rehearsed hymnals as a member of the Youth Choir? Imagine time spent in grooming hair on an individual basis. Yes, hair grooming for young black girls for Sunday Morning service is without a doubt an exciting experience that is shared across the African-American Community.  How about the basic excitement of what to wear and what their friends will wear on Youth Sunday?  And, we know very well each of those young girls thought of the nature of the Sunday service. 

We acknowledge four Civil Rights Heroes equal to none other.

Thoughts of the Civil Rights Movement often focus on the efforts of activist like:  Martin Luther King, Jr., Ralph Abernathy, Andrew Young, John Lewis, Joseph Lowry, James Meredith, Medgar Evers, Rosa Parks, James Farmers, Roy Wilkins, Whitney Young,  Bayard Rustin, Jesse Jackson, Walter Francis White, Rev. Jesse L. Douglas, Sr. From another perspective there were others, equally notable ,but more outside of peaceful activism.  We also give special mention to: Malcolm X (Malik Shabazz), Stokley Carmichael, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, Fred Hampton, Angela Davis, H. "Rap" Brown, and other who represented civil rights activists who stood opposite non-violent protest and practiced various forms of civil disobedience.  

Of course, we will not screed farther without referring to the link below: Civil Rights Martyrs. We acknowledge with deep sympathy and respect for people who gave the ultimate sacrifice. People who truly via their spirits and marks on US History won't allow rollbacks of social gains garnered via their deaths. 

Lest we forget!!!!!!! These four young girls will be given Congressional Gold Medals. You will miss a serious historical perspective if you do not listen to the 7:30 Minute NPR audio segment. PRICELESS!

Congress Honors Victims Of Infamous Alabama Church Bombing

On Tuesday, Congress will bestow its highest civilian honor — posthumously — on the young victims of a deadly Alabama church bombing from the civil rights era. 
The Congressional Gold Medals for Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley come 50 years after the black girls were killed by a Ku Klux Klan bomb.

Birmingham Post-Herald photographer Tommy Langston arrived at the Trailways bus depot in Birmingham just in time to shoot this iconic photograph of Ku Klux Klan members attacking a man they believed to be one of the Freedom Riders on May 14, 1961.
