    The Resurrection of “Nigger”

    Five years ago, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other leaders of the black community staged what had to have been one of the most fatuous exercises in the history of language: They “buried” the word “nigger.”

    As with anything buried alive, the word has scratched and clawed its way to the surface once again proving that premature burial is usually not permanent or productive.

    It was a selective internment anyway since most African-Americans never participated in the funeral and hip-hop “artists” never ceased using “nigger” as well as “bitch,” ”ho,” and other less-than flattering terminology toward women in their “art.”

    At the 2007 ceremony in Detroit, Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick gravely intoned, “Today we’re not just burying the N-word, we’re taking it out of our spirit. We gather burying all the things that go with the N-word. We have to bury the ‘pimps’ and the ‘hos’ that go with it. Die N-word, and we don’t want to see you ’round here no more.”

    Perhaps Kilpatrick wasn’t the ideal spokesman for the obsequies. He wasn’t exactly a role model either before or after he became Detroit’s mayor, what with a plethora of corruption, perjury, obstruction of justice, bribery, extortion, and fraud scandals and serving time in federal prison.

    The first evidence that nigger was making a comeback fortunately didn’t happen on FOX News which would have been castigated by the left wing media had someone on FOX employed the term.

    Last month, CNN special investigator Drew Griffin was reporting on an alleged hate crime in Mississippi and cited a cell phone call by one of the suspects: “At the end of this, Deryl Dedmon is laughing with his friends and actually called on a cell phone and, pardon my language but there’s no other way to say this–‘I just ran over that f—ing nigger.’ ”

    Of course, there were myriad other ways of saying it but none had nearly the shock value of Griffin’s usage of a buried word.

    Likewise, there were various other ways for Susan Candiotti, a CNN correspondent, to report on the recent Tulsa shootings than by quoting a Facebook entry by one of the accused on Easter Sunday: “And it reads like this: ‘Today is two years that my dad has been gone, shot by’–and please excuse the language, it’s very sensitive–‘Shot by a fucking nigger.’ “

    Apologies were duly accepted for both the use of the F-word and the N-word . . . (Read more at

    So HISPANIC George Zimmerman is white when it is politically expedient, but now it looks like the Hispanics (who we are being told by the Left is NOT a race) want to team up with Blacks to fight “The Common Enemy”

    I wonder who they mean?

    Convicted rapist Mike Tyson opines on George Zimmerman:

    “It’s a disgrace that man [Zimmerman] hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested–the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace.”

    Interesting discussion going on over at American Thinker concerning Obama’s supposed birth certificate. Simply put, the letters don’t line up on the birth certificate. For example if you superimpose “Hospital” on top of “Highway” the letters don’t line up; the characters per inch spacing is slightly different to the point that it is obvious to the untrained, Moonbat, eye.

    Why does this matter? Because it is so simple to prove that the birth certificate appears to be a forgery, and because presenting a forged government document, regardless of the content of that document, is a crime.

    Every day that the birth certificate is posted at the White House web site, it is proof of a crime that has been committed, independent of Obama’s “Natural Born Citizen” issue.

    Convicted rapist Mike Tyson opines on George Zimmerman:

    Hard to understand how folks who’s ancestors were lynched without benefit of a trial would now call for the same kind of justice.

    Thanks, Obama, for your steadfast enforcement of the rule of law.

    Are the New Black Panthers and La Raza teaming up for a race war against whitey?

    According to this racist nut job who calls himself an Aztec al-Qaeda Warrior (aka E. F. Mohammed Martinez) La Raza and the Black Panthers have been teamed up for a long time already.

    Hypocrisy 101:

    “The Congressional Caucus on Womens Issues and The Congressional Black Caucus called on the Augusta National Golf Club to allow women as members. In a joint statement, the two Congressional orginizations said that any organization that bases membership on sex or race has no place in modern society…”

    BTW, when does the Congressional White Caucus meet?

  12. StanInTexas says:

    Yeah, Bob, I remember Obama saying to lay off of his wife… as his wife was out on the stump actively campaigning for him and insulting America in the process.

    I also remember very well how, when McCain picked Sarah Palin as his VP nominee and the Left wing smear machine went after her and her husband AND THEIR CHILDREN that Obama was S-I-L-E-N-T!!!!

  13. Bob Roberts says:

    In the previous open thread, and also perhaps in others, lao has repeatedly lied and accused me of engaging in “trial by blog” with respect to the Zimmerman case.

    I have a question for lao.

    Who is it I’m putting on trial again?

    I’m the one saying we should not be having this discussion at all because it’s not really even about Zimmerman or about the fact Martin viciously attacked him & tried to kill him that night.

    It’s really about gun control and racism.T This case is being used to try to usurp our Second Amendment rights and to fan the flames of racism because Obama desperately needs a distraction from his dismal record and the precarious state of the economy thanks to the actions of him & the Democrats.

  14. Bob Roberts says:

    If you thought the arrest of Zimmerman would put a stop to racist rants, guess again:

    Farrakhan’s Wild New Claims: Jesus Was a Black Muslim & Elijah Would Be the ‘N***er at the Door’.

    Ah, moonbats, like lao, you just have to shake your head and grin when they get going. Speaking of lao, why doesn’t he wise up and get going, permanently, to somewhere where his ilk are welcome?

    Tyson joins those calling for assassination of Zimmerman.

    ‘The things that’s about to happen, to these honkeys, these crackers, these pigs’. “Let me tell you, the things that’s about to happen, to these honkeys, these crackers, these pigs, these pink people, these —- people. It has been long overdue. My prize right now this evening … is gonna be the bounty, the arrest, dead or alive, for George Zimmerman. You feel me?”

    What do you know – some sense from an unexpected source:
    Martin’s mom states that she believes shooting was an accident. You know, lao has us so busy chasing his lies that I’ve not ever taken the time to really say how deeply saddened I am for Martin’s mother, who, on top of losing him, really didn’t need to learn all the terrible things about her son that the rabble rousing racist Democrats have caused to become public knowledge. I would have been much happier had we just let him rest in peace and not seen his character destroyed so utterly and completely. To his mother: My most sincere condolences for your loss. Know he’s in a better place now, hopefully.

    Don’t you mean “When do the Congressional Men’s Caucus and the Congressional Whites Caucus meet?”

    One or the other didn’t get the memo!

    Senate Democrats Fund Raising Theme: GOP WAR ON WOMEN!

    Pelosi also making “War on Women” (War on Women’s Rights) claims.

    Rosen: Democrats aren’t pushing a war on women theme!

    Now Rosen just attacked a woman, Ann Romney as part of the Democrats and THEIR war on women, so what? Is she just confused?

    THE LAND OF OBAMA – he’s from Chicago, doncha know!

    Senate Office of Education and Training can’t spell!

    Biden claims Franken is a legal scholar! That’s almost as funny as the people who were calling Obama an expert on the Constitution. This is yet another example of why Biden is known as “The Dumbest Man in the U.S. Senate”!

    Case eerily similar the the Trayvon Martin shooting

  20. Bob Roberts says:

    OBAMA: KANYE WEST IS STILL A JACKASS. Also claimed he was smart, talented. Well, everyone makes mistakes!

    I see that someone else already posted about Obama now admitting the “Buffet Rule” is a gimmick. Race war, class war – is there ANY issue where Obama is a uniter instead of a divider?

    Titanic Excuses?

    The April 15th, 1912 sinking of the “unsinkable” RMS Titanic in the North Atlantic has become the stuff of legend, a tribute to man’s arrogance, testimony to man’s fallibility, and proof of man’s vulnerabilities.

    The ultra-luxurious Titanic launched on her maiden voyage from Southhampton, England one hundred years ago today with some ten millionaires and scores of the wealthiest people on the planet on board as well as over 2,000 lesser human beings.

    Three days later 1,514 would be dead–including many of the elite, First Class passengers–from drowning, exposure to frigid ocean waters, and various other catastrophic events.

    The story of the Titanic tragedy has been told and re-told for a century.

    The Titanic story has been replete with accounts of bravery and cowardice, with tales of First Class passengers given priority to board the woefully insufficient lifeboats and the pathetic souls in steerage largely left to die, with evidence the majestic ship had been poorly engineered and built and that its collision with an iceberg had been avoidable.

    Two new studies have now virtually exonerated Titanic Captain Edward John Smith and his crew from responsibility in the tragedy.

    One argues that nature was complicit . . . (Read more at

    TYPICAL DEMOCRAT, TRYING TO BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR HIS FAILURES! “You can say, ‘Are you doing it right,'” Emanuel said, “but the question is, ‘Why were those policies not done before?'”
    Between the start of 2012 and April 1, Chicago Police recorded 120 homicides, a 60 percent spike over the 75 murders during the same period in 2010 and 2011.

    So he lost his A$$ in wind power? Is that why there are huge wind farms that stretch as far as the eye can see, even when you’re flying over them, in West Texas? If you have GOOGLE EARTH you can see the NE edge of the wind farm on a ridge south of Trent, TX on I-20. It’s an amazing sight at night because each tower has a red light that apparently serves double duty: To warn away aircraft and to indicate the phase lock of the system, as all the lights blink in sync.
