Idiots on ‘The View’ Manage to Make the Royal Wedding Racist

One or more of the doofuses on The View borrowed Whoopi’s race card in order to add some racial overtones to yesterday’s royal wedding.

“Where are the black people?”

I don’t quite know what they’re trying to say here, and neither do they, but whatever it is, there weren’t enough black people there, and the ones who were there were just

Never mind who wore what, the View’s Sherri Shepherd had another more controversial question about the Royal Wedding today.

‘Where are the black people?’ the outspoken actress, 44, asked as the panelists critiqued Prince William and Kate Middleton’s ceremony.

The star said she had earlier searched through the footage of guests at Westminster Abbey.

‘Audrey Jones our producer was looking for the black people in the wedding and we found our Rosa Parks moment, because we were like ‘where are the black people’?’ she said.

‘It was like where’s Waldo, where are the black people?’ she added.

‘We found one little black child in the choir but where’s the black people at this wedding?’ she repeated.

‘Wait a minute the Calvary guy, from New York,’ said Goldie Hawn, 65, who was a guest host for the day.

I think these Hope & Change Kool Aid chuggers are just pissed that the Obamas were snubbed. If the Obamas were there the rest of the wedding could have been whiter than an Osmonds special in a blizzard and it would have been the greatest, most inclusive and hopeful wedding ever!

The View boneheads ultimately conceded that there were a few black people at the wedding, but that they were segregated just like they tried to do to Rosa Parks, or something:

I ask myself a similar question whenever I see a clip from The View — “Where are the smart people? Oh… there’s one way over there… the token.”

Gloria Allred Uses Baseball Bat to Demonstrate Her Contribution to the Integrity of the Legal Profession

Gloria Allred continues to bring class and dignity to her profession.

Sports Grid:

Yesterday, we told you about an unknown Major League Baseball coach who shouted gay slurs at a fan, then threatened him with a baseball bat in front his children. Well, it turns out that coach is Roger McDowell of the Atlanta Braves.

McDowell, in addition to the ugliness above, is also accused of simulating sex with a baseball bat at one point. To illustrate just how McDowell did this, Gloria Allred, a high-powered attorney representing the fan, decided to give us a demonstration at a news conference.

Bonus Allred “nothin-but-class” points: Notice the young kids looking on as she does this:

I’ve never seen a baseball bat go limp and try to run away before.

Think Progress: Run For Your Lives, Climate Deniers, the Tornadoes are Coming After You!

Think Progress didn’t even wait until the funerals of the victims were over before trying to shamelessly politicize a weather event that has now killed over 300 people while trying to lead “deniers” to believe they had it coming:

null

They do mention the storms were the worst “in decades,” but don’t seem interested to ask themselves what caused them decades ago.

Did you catch the subtle change in approach? “Climate pollution” — not “warming” or even “change”… but “pollution.” It sure is hard to deny there’s “pollution” out there, isn’t it? Now they don’t even have to prove that the planet is trending cooler or warmer to explain hurricanes, floods and tornadoes. All they just need to do is throw some tin cans alongside the road and get a cow to fart nearby and they’ve got all they need to blame weather patterns that are as old as the planet on human activity.

I’m no meteorologist, but I do know a little about tornadoes. However, one thing I didn’t know is that they have political vendettas:

The congressional delegations of these states — Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia, and Kentucky — overwhelmingly voted to reject the science that polluting the climate is dangerous. They are deliberately ignoring the warnings from scientists.

Now not only is climate “neglect” (or whatever level the scam has now been elevated to) causing killer tornadoes, but those tornadoes are targeting areas inhabited by climate deniers? They make it sound like Al Gore now has a hit-man on the payroll.

Here’s one possible answer that doesn’t fit the agenda behind the climate sham so you’ll never hear it offered as a possibility:

Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), also dismissed Thursday climate change as a factor in the deadly tornadoes: “Actually what we’re seeing is springtime,” he said.

“Springtime”? According to Think Progress, if that guy doesn’t drink the Kool Aid fast, he’s going to get nailed by a tornado.

If you read this article, it explains a favorite argument among the Gorebots that there are “more storms” and more people are harmed by them now than 50 or 100 years ago. The reasons are, among many, better tracking technology and that there are simply more people. Normally that would go in the “Duh” file but the left’s feigned ignorance (not feigned in many cases) knows no bounds when trillions of dollars is at stake.

Remember when Pat Robertson said Hurricane Katrina was punishment for US sin? The left (and much of the right for that matter) mercilessly mocked him as a kook — and now Think Progress goes and does the same damn thing. Go figure.

Update: NBC’s Brian Williams wonders if the tornadoes were caused by “something we have done.” Given the collective Obamagasm-induced body heat that’s been radiating from MSM newsrooms into the atmosphere (including from Brian Williams) for the past three years, I’d have to say “definitely” to that.

Katie Couric and Andrea Mitchell Need to Search Their Own Websites Before Reporting ‘Facts’

The CBS News and MSNBC fact checkers were hard at work once again this week… mowing their lawns or something.

From Newsbusters:

On Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, outgoing anchor Katie Couric began the broadcast by declaring: “It was an extraordinary moment, President Obama went on national television today and did what no other president has ever even been asked to do, prove he’s a natural born U.S. citizen.” On Thursday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, host Andrea Mitchell similarly proclaimed: “I mean, people who want to raise these conspiracy theorists – theories – and there is no other explanation other than, you know, sort of pure racism, because it’s never been raised about a white president.”

Did Couric and Mitchell even bother to wonder if something similar had ever happened before? And risk destroying such a good “conservatives are racist” meme? Nevah!

If Katie and Andrea would have cared enough to search even their own networks’ websites instead of instinctively carrying Obama’s water they would have found out their blind assumptions were full of more holes than the balloon carrying Couric’s ratings.

The CBS News website and the MSNBC website both posted an AP story from 2009 about a similar controversy revolving around President Chester Arthur.

Arthur was a Republican though, so maybe he doesn’t count.

A Suggestion for John Boehner in Dealing with Nancy Pelosi’s Call to End Taxpayer Subsidies to Big Oil

Nancy Pelosi’s website is trumpeting her opinion that US taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize Big Oil because they’re making record profits.

Fair enough… provided that Republicans insist on the exact same thing when it comes to ending Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer subsidies because of their record profits.

Any takers on the Hill?

Bob Schieffer on Trump’s ‘Ugly Strain of Racism’ (Did Bob Call it an ‘Ugly Strain of Sexism’ When People Wanted to See Palin’s College Transcripts?)

Donald Trump wants to look at Barack Obama’s school grades. According to the uber-objective alleged journalist Bob Schieffer, that’s an “ugly strain of racism.”

I wish I would have thought of that one when I was in school and my parents asked about my grades.

“What did you get in social studies?”

“Racist!”

Take it away, Bob:

Schieffer’s acting as if Obama’s the first president or presidential/VP candidate to ever have his or her school performance called into question. There have been others who refused to release their college grades, but I don’t recall Bob Schieffer saying it was an “ugly strain of sexism” when people called for the release of Sarah Palin’s transcripts. As a matter of fact, not releasing her transcripts was used by some as “proof” that Palin must be an idiot. Obama’s political opponents aren’t free to make that assumption about him without enduring the media’s worn out covering fire of “racism.”

Obama Waves Administration’s Strict Carbon Emission Standards for His Oprah & Fundraising Motorcade

The president has advised Americans to trade in those gas guzzlers for more fuel efficient, environmentally-friendly vehicles. As evidenced by Obama’s motorcade yesterday in New York on East 61st street in Manhattan, I think he wants America to get rid of those gas guzzlers so he can include them in his impressively sized Hope & Change procession:

Did I see an ice cream truck in there? I guess that would make sense.

But these emissions that fly in the face of his administration’s stated carbon standards, as well as huge traffic backups, were for good purposes: Three fundraisers and one taping of Oprah.

Gas Prices Plummet, Unemployment Rate Drops and National Debt Disappears on News That Obama’s Birth Certificate Has Been Released

Okay, those things didn’t happen, but at least a lot of people forgot about them for five minutes this morning.

You might have heard that the White House released President Obama’s birth certificate as part of “Operation Try to Get Trump to STFU.”

I’m actually happy about it. No, it won’t put a stop to all of the “birther” chatter, but it might help — just a little bit — redirect the focus of the majority of the right where it should have been all along: On how Barack Obama is burying the United States of America under a mountain of debt, regulation, pork, union favors and “green” swindles. This wouldn’t be any less true if Obama had been born on Mars (or in a manger as Chris Matthews believes).

Here’s what Obama said in closing this morning after announcing the release of his birth certificate:

We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do.

Then, very shortly after Obama said he’s got better stuff to do…

null

“Laser-like focus!”

Update: Obama couldn’t even get through the press conference about his birth certificate without lying:

The president said he was prompted to act “two weeks ago, when the Republican House had put forward a budget that will have huge consequences potentially to the country, and when I gave a speech about my budget and how I felt that we needed to invest in education and infrastructure and making sure that we had a strong safety net for our seniors even as we were closing the deficit, during that entire week the dominant news story wasn’t about these huge, monumental choices that we’re going to have to make as a nation. It was about my birth certificate. And that was true on most of the news outlets that were represented here.”

But the president was wrong.

According to Pew’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, that week the dominant news story was without question the economy.

The ridiculous claims about the president’s birth certificate actually was the No. 4 story for the week – receiving about one tenth of the coverage devoted to stories about the economy.

AP: Leon Panetta Will Be Nominated for Secretary of Defense

Leon Panetta? The former Clinton Chief of Staff and current Director of Intelligence who told Congress that his prediction that Hosni Mubarak would step down was based on media reports? That Leon Panetta? Call me crazy, but a good Intelligence Director shouldn’t have to read the New York Times.

In any case, that’s the same guy who’s probably going to be the next Secretary of Defense.

USA Today:

CIA director Leon Panetta will be named to succeed Robert Gates as secretary of defense and Gen. David Petraeus will be nominated to replace him as CIA director, The Associated Press reports, quoting unidentified sources.

CNN has the headline of the day so far:

How’s Leon supposed to train for his new position as SecDef if he can’t sign in to play Call of Duty?

Barack Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate Starts Twitter Account

Maybe this will shut up those friggin’ birther losers. Not only does Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate (BOLFBC) exist, but it’s got it’s own Twitter account.

BOLFBC has a pretty good sense of humor, too:

null

Gateway Pundit points out that BOLFBC is following Bill Ayers, TelePrompter Obama, Communist Party USA and Malcolm X — in other words, this is totally legit! Suck it, Trump!
