Why Even the “N Word” Less Offensive than NY Post’s Chimp Cartoon

Decades after the classic 1940s experiment by psychologists Kenneth and Mamie Clarke, we meet a sobering reality. They published three major papers between 1939 and 1940 on children’s self perception related to race. They found that black children often preferred to play with white dolls over black ones; that, asked to fill in a human figure with the color of their own skin, they frequently chose a lighter shade than was accurate; and that the children gave the color “white” attributes such as good and pretty, but “black” was qualified as bad and ugly.

CNN’s Self-Evident Hologram Fraud

You're so stupid you think Christmas Wrap is Snoop Doggy Dogg's holiday album. You're so stupid you stand up on an empty bus. And last but not least, Wolf Blitzer is so stupid he got hit by a parked car. Even if what stood before Blitzer was a hologram, and it wasn't, it would still appear on two-dimensional television, thereby making the hologram no more exceptional or real than Wolf Blitzer's reportorial credentials.

Why Kissinger Backed Hillary

Why would Henry Kissinger endorse Hillary? was it because she was the only candidate for the job who made diplomacy under sniper fire a testament to girl power? oh wait. There was no sniper fire! and there was no blow to the feminist movement that once looked up to her! So I don’t understand why she would be offered the position. Maybe her blunders make her uniquely qualified for the job. Or maybe Obama wants her inside the tent, pissing out, rather than outside the tent, pissing in. […]

Joe the Plumber Predicted by The Onion in ’93?

May 29, 1993: The Onion’s story about Roy the Forklift driver becoming a media darling of the conservative movement becomes, apparently, a self-fulfilling prophecy. Or has talk radio dumbed us down so much what once was so unlikely as to be satirical now surprises no one? In the article, the uneducated forklift operator from Ohio addresses a spellbound nation on The Rush Limbaugh Show to “offer profound insight on current events.” Unlike the forklift driver, Joe the Plumber now has a book deal by a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch’s ultra-right media empire. This reflects just as badly on Murdoch as it does on those who look up to Joe the Plumber. […]

President John Quincy Adams on Freemasonry

“The second manifestation of the force of the Masonic obligation was made visible in the courts of justice… The sheriffs, whose duty it was under the laws of New York to select and summon the grand juries, were, in all the counties in which the deeds of violence against Morgan had been committed, Freemasons. Several of them had themselves been parties to the crime. They did not hesitate to make use of their power as officers of justice to screen the criminals from conviction. The jurors whom they summoned were most of them Masons, some of them participators in the offenses into which it became their civil duty to inquire.” […]

“Involuntary Brain-Wave Cessation” Memo

“The practice of Involuntary Brain-Wave Cessation (IBWC) interrogation techniques includes but is not limited to water boarding, beatings, drowning, hanging, shooting the interrogee point blank in the face, dismemberment, throwing the interrogated off tall buildings or aircraft, and running him over repeatedly with a tank. The intelligence gathered postmortem may save American lives; provided the torture can continue after the prisoner is deceased and there is a medium to relay the confession. It is therefore our opinion that the jury is still out on the interrogation efficacy of IBWC.” […]
