News straight up, with a twist
And so the Swiftboating of John Kerry begins!
More wailing and gnashing of teeth in Wingnuttia. There's some strong language ahead, and not all of it is mine! -- Tengrain
- Sequels! - The movie that you and no one you know has ever seen, Dreams From My Real Father, was so popular that the producers are making a sequel! Yes, the movie that argues that The Kenyan Usurper Hawaiian Devil Baby was actually the son of late Chicago communist Frank Marshall Davis. The producer, Joel Gilbert is looking for a distributor for the sequel. (BuzzFeed)
- Documentaries - Hey guys, remember that time long, long, long ago when notorious rat-fucker Lee Atwater was alleged to have created the so-called Southern Strategy when he allegedly said:
You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger”—that hurts you, backfires. So you say stuff like, uh, forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff, and you’re getting so abstract. Now, you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites.… “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, uh, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”
Me Neither!, but anyway, the quote was largely considered apocryphal, there was no known documentary evidence that he ever actually said it... until now. James Carter IV (Jimmy's grandson) tracked it down, found the audio, and it is now on the web, and it is exactly the kind of rat-fuckery you would expect from the Reagan White House. (The Nation)
- What's Up, Nut? - So let's see what the World Nut Daily has to say! The founder of Wingnuttian media think tanks Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, Larry Klaymen, sees the end of the GOP, and says, in his usual delicate way, that if conservatives "do nothing and simply look to future elections to restore the nation, we will soon become the “new niggers,” relegated to the back of the bus – as the bus speeds away to quickly fall over the fiscal, social and moral cliff." Well, Larry, looks like you already took the plunge. (World Nut Daily)
