I'm looking forward to seeing many of my old friends, sisters and brothers in the TBLG movement and soon to be new friends at the Hilton Americas Hotel.
And of course I had to be in the house for the first time this eagerly anticipated conference is taking place on my end of I-45 I will be taking part in some of the seminars and panel discussion happening at the host hotel from January 29-February 2.
And for those of you coming to Houston, the program is already up, so you can start planning your CC14 Houston experience before you get inside Harris County.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you and doing my part to help move our human rights movement forward.
Now it's time to move forward to discussing our usual Friday business of exposing what fool, fools or group of fool deserve to be called out for their mind numbing stupidity, their affluenza fueled arrogance, hubris, and over the top hypocrisy.
Honorable mention number one is a group award that goes to all you peeps who threw racist shade at Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman post NFC Championship game and Serena Williams after she was upset in the fourth round of the Australian Open
Honorable Mention number two goes to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) who opposes the bipartisan plan to revive the Voting Rights Act because it 'discriminates against Texas'.
Say what? If you and your GOP buddies weren't doing all the shady stuff to openly suppress the votes of non-white Texans, draw grossly gerrymandered maps that got unanimously thrown out by a federal three judge panel dominated by GOP nominees, passed a discriminatory voter suppression law, and has a long negative history of voting discrimination that necessitated the 1965 act being passed in the first place, Texas wouldn't be getting all this scrutiny in the first place.
Honorable Mention number three is FOX Noise fembot Sandy Rios, who parted her lips to ignorantly say that 'angry Blacks are to blame for the rise in white racism.'
Umm naw Miss Thang, you got is twisted and wrong as usual. Racism= prejudice/bigotry + systemic power. That systemic power element is the critical component you conservafools ALWAYS want to leave out when we start having these national race discussions and why you conservatives massively fail at doing so.
And yeah Sandy, we African Americas sure do have a lot to be angry about, and we'll show you just how pissed off we are come November 4.
Honorable Mention number four is Oakland County GOP Executive (who else) L. Brooks Patterson, a serial Detroit basher who racistly suggested that they herd all Native Americans into Detroit, build a fence around it, and then throw in the blankets and the corn.
Guess the idea sounded better at the
Honorable Mention number five is Ted Nugent. Yep, he's baaaack for calling the POTUS a 'subhuman mongrel'. Yo Ted, your jackboots and swastika are showing.
And BTW, didn't you say you'd be dead if President Obama was reelected? What's stopping you from doing the country that favor?
Honorable mention number six is a joint award for Don Lemon and Niger Innis for their faux outrage on
And you two knee-grows problems with that truthful assessment would be? He has an 'F' grade on the NAACP Civil Right report card. Name one issue that Tim Scott has spoken on in favor of or voted with our people in the entire time he's been in Congress.
Getting sick of this bitter-tasting Log Cabin Republican tinged Lemon-aid coming from him lately.
Honorable mention number seven is Florida GOP House candidate Joshua Black. This knee-grow opened his moth to say that President Obama should be hung, and then subsequently doubled down on the Teapublican idiocy.
All I have to say in response to that jaw dropping stupidity is this.
Please Florida voters in House District 68, make sure on November 4 or whenever you're having your primary election that this Oreo cookie-chomping fool never sets foot inside the Tallahassee city limits or your state capitol building.
This week's Shut Up Fool winner is GOP congressional candidate Susanne Altamus, who is running in the Illinois GOP primary race to see who will oppose incumbent Rep Jan Schakowsky.
She opened her mouth to say that God created autism and dementia and extreme weather conditions to punish the US for legalized abortion and increasing national support for marriage equality.
“God is angry,” Altamus told the Chicago Daily Herald. “We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions. Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it’s in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God.”
And your party is angry enough with you over those jacked up remarks that they kicked you to the curb and called for you to resign from the race, not that you had any chance to beat Jan Schakowsky in the first place before you opened you mouth and inserted your pumps in it..
But still, y'all really need to chill with the 'Conservagod is angry' line because of (insert your Consrvafool Culture War social issue here).
That comment is also insulting and disrespectful to all the families in the Chicagoland area and elsewhere in this country who have relatives who are dealing with autism and dementia issues.
So Susanne Altamus, shut the hell up fool!
