The New New Civil Rights Movement

by matttbastard

Is truly inspiring to see so many conservatives take a firm stand against racism. Truly.

Update: Via Antonia, oppressed white male Bill Wolfrum is mad as hell and isn’t going to take it any more:

We must fight. Today, a white male child will be born into an oppressive society where the color of his skin will only be a great advantage, not an incomprehensibly powerful advantage. That child will see that there is now extra competition out there between himself and his dreams. That child will be born into a society that – while understanding his cultural values and belief systems – will no longer automatically fearfully submit to them. That child will be destined for a life of dreams and promises that will only very likely be fulfilled. The guarantee is now gone, and we must get it back.

As they say, read the whole damn thing.

Lou Dobbs: Pure Class

by matttbastard

Apparently at least one American has difficulty participating in the National Conversation About Race without resorting to racial slurs

Quelle surprise.

Placeholder (Democracy Fatigue Quickly Becoming Chronic–and Literal)

by matttbastard

Good fucking goddamn it all.  “Ardent NAFTA opponent” (buh?! this tepid video is sorely lacking in ardour, much less opposition) Jack Layton was just on the Lou Dobbs show doing a nativist populist pander-bear routine at the expense of “Communist China” (Lou always prefaces China with Communist–booga booga, Red menace!). “When in Rome…” has its limits, Jacko.

Alas, further foul-mouthed agitation will have to wait until later tomorrow; too much work + not enough sleep recently = fuck you, blogging (for tonight, at least).

P.S. Not that there’s anything wrong with pink, but methinks Stephane “I’ve got better things to do than stand up for women’s rights” Dion needs to step away from the irony…slowly…that’s a good little AWOL official opposition leader (sigh).
