Martin Luther King wouldn’t approve of Donald Trump or John Lewis

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a federal holiday signed into law by Ronald Reagan on November 2, 1983. In remarks made during the signing ceremony in the Rose Garden, Reagan acknowledged Dr. King’s contributions as he peacefully, but…

Legitimate civil rights leaders

When it comes to the networks or the NY Times naming civil rights leaders, they’ll frequently name Jesse Jackson, Jr., Al Sharpton or, occasionally, John Lewis. It’s time to name a new set of civil rights leaders. If I were king-for-a-day, I’d start the list with Alton Sterling’s family. I’d start with Quinyetta McMillon, the […]

It’s Those Damned 7-11 Cameras That Are the Real Racists, Not Cops

Why are some people saying the cops are targeting blacks?  Statistics prove otherwise, only no one, especially in the Jungle, reads statistics. Pictures are much better. And …

Around the Web This Week

Sort of a compendium of odds and ends today, without a lot of commentary from me. My dearest friend, partner and editor here, Jessica, is celebrating the third anniversary of her blog today, although she is only present in spirit, because of her health problems. My post about it is here. The Federalist had a […]

Alan Dershowitz praises Megyn Kelly

VIDEO: Dr. Alveda King On Building Community, ISIS And Bringing The Nation Back To God

Originally posted on Rat Nation:
So much for the United States no longer being a Christian nation “You cannot build a beloved community by putting young men in front of a camera and cutting their heads off.” – Dr. Alveda King, September 2, 2014 You know it’s bad when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece…

Conservative Comedy 1/24/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change reports on Barack Obama’s sweeping interview with the New Yorker (by “sweeping” we mean something that belongs in a dustbin)  where he declared that the reason he’s suffered a steep drop in popularity over the past year is . . . wait for it . . . racism!  ”There’s no doubt,” said the twice-elected president, “that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” Even though, oddly, they appeared to like the idea just fine back in 2008 and 2012. So the question is whether the electorate is growing more racist, if Obama is getting blacker, or if just maybe more Americans are growing comfortable with the idea of judging a president by the content of his character rather than the color of his skin – a concept proposed by some vicious racist whose name slips our mind at the moment. We have two reports from Jodi Miller at Newsbusted. In […]

President Obama’s political priorities

President Obama is a political captive of his own political identity. That’s the emphasis of Salena Zito’s column: The crowd expected the president to deliver a speech filled with reassurances about the problems associated with ObamaCare. Instead, he offered biting partisan rhetoric that tried to blame Republicans for the failures of his signature health-care bill.

Conservative Comedy 8/30/13

It’s Conservative Comedy Friday at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change is taking some time to deal with some family health issues. I would like to ask my readers to keep him in your prayers. In the meantime, I have found some great work in his archives. Fort Hood terrorist Nidal Hassan was sentenced to death by injection for his terrorist attack at Fort Hood. Yeah, I know that Obama called it workplace violence—because he will not tolerate any criticism of Muslims—but I think when he yelled “Allahu Akbar” prior to pulling the trigger, it rose to something a little bit more than just a disgruntled employee. I think you’ll enjoy the archives I found covering the trial. The pervert mayor of San Diego has resigned. Now we can find out some of the stuff the mainstream media has omitted in their coverage. Al Jazeera America—who would have thought you’d ever hear those words used together?—launched this week. Could that be bad news for MSNBC? Find out the funny answers to these and other […] . . . → Read More: Conservative Comedy 8/30/13 . . . → Read More: Conservative Comedy 8/30/13

Erik Erickson the editor of RedState remind us that “Dream” wasn’t the only great speech that doctor King gave. There is another, some say even better that is called the Street Sweeper.

I Have a Dream and a Letter from the Birmingham Jail

Well, I don’t really have to introduce this, do I? 50 years ago today, a great American made a great speech which showed us the path forward. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There is far to go but we have come a very long way in the last 50 years.

Trayvon, George and 42, Part Three

Professor Cornell West of Union Theological Seminary has been noted for the saying “race matters.” He is an unabashed liberal who regularly rages against conservatism and capitalism. Suffice it to say that he and I are about as far apart in both the theological and political arenas as two people can be. However, in this […] . . . → Read More: Trayvon, George and 42, Part Three . . . → Read More: Trayvon, George and 42, Part Three

Trayvon, George and 42, Part One

I recently viewed the film “42” and it was superb. For those who don’t know, “42” is the true story of Jackie Robinson. If you don’t know who he was, well let’s just say you don’t know baseball or American history very well.   I viewed the film on DVD with a friend of mine […] . . . → Read More: Trayvon, George and 42, Part One . . . → Read More: Trayvon, George and 42, Part One
