Must-see VIDEO: The way it wasn't... but should have been.


imagineI included this video in last night's post, Newspaper commenter: “Get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops.” I added it because writing that hateful racist pig's words was so painful that I needed something to get his ugliness and ignorance out of my brain.

But the video deserves a post all its own because it's just that good, just that beautiful, and just that poignant. The concept is so touching, the fantasy so stirring, the vision so heartfelt... I dare you to not tear up:


Why couldn't it have been like this? (Rhetorical, we all know why). Imagine how we as a country could have benefited from these heroes and others whose lives were cut short by people who were as toxic as the deranged bigot in my post.

Imagine a world without hate. Just for a moment. If you can.

hate bigot god hates fags god hates no one"God hates no one."

Big h/t to AMERICAblog's John Aravosis for the video.


VIDEO- Newspaper commenter: "Get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops.”


racist voice mail west virginia paper

Video via WCHS-TV.

A West Virginia newspaper thinks it's okay to print the following despicable homophobic, racist, bigoted (I'm running out of adjectives) comments (transcripts from a voice mail) from a clearly deranged reader who responded to a report about a lesbian teacher who had been fired:

“We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them queers. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops.

“You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters. We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations.

“We’ll keep Lincoln County white and right. Thank you.”

Just as appalling is the man in the video who agreed with those sick, vile remarks.

Marshall University School of Journalism interim dean Janet Dooley:

“It is not only offensive, but it goes beyond that to threaten certain groups of people.”

If the Republican party is struggling to remake their image, they might want to start with attempting to, you know, lead. How about speaking out about language and attitudes like this reader's? They have their work cut out for them, especially because a few of those who should be setting a good example need to clean up their own acts first.



ADDED: We need a palate cleanser, and this one is simply amazing. I wept. I may give it its own post. Big h/t to AMERICAblog's John Aravosis:


VIDEO: Man (allegedly):“Shut that n*gger baby up,” slaps him. Child was crying during flight from "pressure in his ears."


Man calls baby N word news story Man calls baby N word news story 2

A drunk 60-year-old man schmuck got irked because a 19-month-old baby was crying during a Delta Airlines flight to Georgia. Or, hmm, it just might have been because an African American 19-month-old was crying.

The toddler was in tears because of air pressure causing pain in his ears. So what's a full-grown, inconvenienced Idahoan to do? Why, call a little defenseless child "n*gger baby" and provide even more pain by slapping him, what else?

Every conscientious parent knows that nothing quiets down a distressed baby in agony more quickly than a swift smack to the face.

Little Jonah's mom:

"His eye was swollen... and it was bleeding."

Be proud, Mr. Violent Drunk Racist. You, a male adult, traumatized a tiny, unsuspecting, distraught, innocent small fry and his mother.

Via Raw Story:

The 60-year-old man told Bennett to “shut that (‘N word’) baby up,” and slapped the 2-year-old boy in his face as the plane prepared for landing, according to an affidavit.

“I said, ‘What did you just say?’” Bennett explained to ABC News. “And he was so drunk that he fell onto my face, and his mouth moved over to my ear and he said it, just directly into my ear.”

Sidebar: I wonder if Mr. Violent Drunk Racist has kids of his own, and if so, how often he slaps them (or worse). And I also wonder if Mr. Violent Drunk Racist is an avid gun owner.

Roger Ailes. ClusterFox. "Those gays." 'Nuff said.


Rsewgfhldsjwaiodseazvuife!!! That's all I can muster up. Well, that and, qwupayhjedjwydueidj!

Rolling Stone:

Murdoch installed Ailes in the corner office on Fox's second floor at 1211 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan. The location made Ailes queasy: It was close to the street, and he lived in fear that gay activists would try to attack him in retaliation over his hostility to gay rights. (In 1989, Ailes had broken up a protest of a Rudy Giuliani speech by gay activists, grabbing demonstrator by the throat and shoving him out the door.) Barricading himself behind a massive mahogany desk, Ailes insisted on having "bombproof glass" installed in the windows - even going so far as to personally inspect samples of high-tech plexiglass, as though he were picking out new carpet. Looking down on the street below, he expressed his fears to Cooper, the editor he had tasked with up-armoring his office. "They'll be down there protesting," Ailes said. "Those gays."

If I could stop sputtering, I'd say something intelligible. I can't, so I won't. Feel free to sputter more articulately in Comments.
