So Phil Robertson said all blacks were happy before Civil Rights Legislation.
No singing the blues, he said.
A complete fallacy based on the fact that 'The Blues' is a distinctly American form of music created by blacks brought to America as slaves;
""No specific year can be cited as the origin of the blues, largely because the style evolved over a long period and existed in approaching its modern form before the term blues was introduced, before the style was thoroughly documented. Ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik traces the roots of many of the elements that were to develop into the blues back to the African continent, the "cradle of the blues". One important early mention of something closely resembling the blues comes from 1901, when an archaeologist in Mississippi described the songs of black workers which had lyrical themes and technical elements in common with the blues.""
----------
Blacks started singing the blues as soon as they were taken off the slave ships in Charleston Harbor.
Proves that Phil and you idiots who defend him know nothing about the suffering of blacks during and after slavery. Right to this day.
I've heard men, and even some women, say far worse about both gays and blacks than Robertson said to Mabry__I was not shocked at all but more in wonderment about who Robertson thought he'd be reaching and then accomplishing by granting an interview to a gossip guy to be published in GQ.

Some may recall that poster Carol, not long ago, wondered about the whole anus vs vagina thing right here on this thread__for a day or two. Like Phil Robertson, Carol has reduced gay relationships to people shoving stuff up each others azzes.

I was more displeased with Robertson's remarks about his childhood experiences with blacks__which were total bullshit for he didn't go to school with blacks or associate with them beyond perhaps some isolated small time farming experiences. He's said he hoed cotton with happy blacks__it would be interesting if it was in his fathers, or uncles cotton patch eh?

Realtime was in Louisiana twice during the sixties__at Tigerland.

Good for you.

Further proof of what a sociopath you are. Funny how you come here and make moral judgements, while you're nothing but a lonely loser with no family or friends, a loser reduced to spending her Christmas on TOPIX along with a few other losers."
Emaam plagiarizes my messages!!

That was stolen directly from my message to Gunner!! LOL

It's ok. He obviously appreciates superior commentary.

'Carol has reduced gay relationships to people shoving stuff up each others azzes.' I would add 'all rightwingers' to that statement, otherwise it's spot on.

I agree with you, his ignorance over how his fellow human beings were being treated I found to be more disturbing.

Bless you Rosa Parks.

I work the oil and ng patch. I've heard far worse, regularly. Spend some time in the Eagle Ford or Barnett Shale areas of TX, you'll hear much worse.

It's not about Phil or his backwards views.

It's about haters running with his messages of hate and attempting to make it sound acceptable.

It's not. This will be a teachable moment for the hateful nitwits.

The America many of these losers grew up in no loonger exists. That's the problem.

America has moved on, these losers are stuck in the 1950's, pre Civil Rights segregationist beliefs.

They want the America that existed before Eisenhower sent Federal Troops into Little Rock to disperse the racists.

They'll be dead soon.

Private chart undocumented by official sources.

Vast majority nearly 4 million were Medicaid according to this chart- if to be believed -which is not signing up for insurance and NOT the target numbers necessary to make Obamacare work.

A Christmas Story

WEST READING, Pa.(AP)— A terminally ill girl who received support from thousands of Christmas carolers outside her home over the weekend died early on Christmas morning, her family said.

Delaney Brown, 8, of West Reading "passed away quietly with her loving family by her side," family spokesman Christopher Winters said in a statement Wednesday.

On Saturday night, thousands gathered outside her home in eastern Pennsylvania to fulfill her wish for a huge holiday singalong. The crowd cycled through holiday favorites such as "Frosty the Snowman," ''Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" and "Jingle Bells" and ended with a chorus of "Happy Birthday" to the girl, who turned 8 on Friday, The Reading Eagle reported.

Shortly after the caroling began, the family's Facebook page showed a picture of Delaney giving two thumbs up with the text, "I can hear you now!!! Love you!"

Delaney, whose nickname is Laney, was diagnosed in May with a rare form of leukemia. The community held fundraisers to defray the cost of her medical expenses.

you can't have prayer in public schools. and don't expect public schools to disappear anytime soon.....
there's a very good reason that not everyone sends their child to private school that's run by a religious organization. not everyone wants their child to be indoctrinated in religion, or not, by anyone but themselves.
btw...Sharia law? really? when?
no wonder FOX can't find any new viewers.
Read it again!! Good grief!!! Uh wash bath at colleges, for one. Pray rooms, for two. Libtards are SO stupid!!!!

The Great Liberal Lie - We Care

'We care about the poor, the undocumented'

**********"Those left out include undocumented workers and poor people"

When we talk about the Affordable Care Act, we mostly focus on the millions of Americans who will gain health insurance coverage.

We talk less about the millions who will remain uninsured.

And there are a lot of them: 30 million Americans will not have coverage under Obamacare, according to a new analysis in the journal Health Affairs.

"Even if the law were fully implemented, there would have been 26 million uninsured people," co-author Steffie Woolhandler said. "This isn't just about the Medicaid expansion. This is the system as originally designed."
**********

Yeah, the left cares, alright. The left cares about power, controlling the people, and fundamentally changing the country.
