Shut Up Fool! Awards- SUF Anniversary Weekend Edition
January 30, 2009 was the first time I selected a Shut Up Fool winner, and that week's first selection was Juan Williams The feature has taken a life of its own and begat Shut Up Fool of the Year Awards and the upcoming Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement Awards during Oscar weekend..
So who will be the Shut Up Fool Award winner on SUF Anniversary weekend?
Our finalists for this week were Glenn Beck, Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI), the gang at Fox Noise, Sal Russo, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, Megyn Kelly and Dan Savage
But she earned it this week with her breathtaking ignorance of the real history of slavery in this country.
No Michele, this country had to fight a civil war and 600,000 soldiers died in order to end slavery.
Ever heard of the 3/5 Compromise that is enshrined in the Constitution that stated that people like me were 3/5th of a human being? I swear some days you Republicans and your supporters still think and act as though we African-Americans are only 3/5 of a human being.
Many of the Founding Fathers that you Tea Party peeps revere were SLAVE OWNERS. Thomas Jefferson had a long term relationship with Sally Hemings, one of his slaves..
Then we spent another 100 years fighting the Jim Crow segregation and Klan terrorism that the sore loser Confederates unleashed against my peeps in the Deep South when they regained power after Reconstruction in 1877.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, shut up fool!
