Grayson: GOP wishes there were Nobel prize for ‘fear, hatred, racism’ | Raw Story: "'They understand that if Barack Obama were somehow able to cure hunger in the world, the Republicans would blame him for overpopulation,' Grayson continued. 'They understand that if Barack Obama were to somehow bring about world peace, they would blame him for destroying the defense industry. In fact they understand that if Barack Obama had a BLT for lunch tomorrow, they would try to ban bacon.'"

Why Conservatives Are Really Afraid of a Black President | | AlterNet: "In the process, Obama has transformed such opponents into the racial other, an uneducated and uncultured blob of white (and largely Southern) backwardness that is beyond the pale of social redemption or acculturation. Wilson and the remaining Sons of Confederate Veterans have, in effect, become this 'black man's burden.'"

The Field: Surveillance Camera Footage of Honduras Coup Invasion of Channel 36

The Field: Surveillance Camera Footage of Honduras Coup Invasion of Channel 36It should be added that this kind of jackbooted censorship is endorsed and defended by the US public relations firm of "Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates on behalf of the Office of the President of the Republic of Honduras," and Washington DC lobbyist Lanny Davis, enemies of press freedom, all. So next time any of those goons in suits and ties try to spin a story angle on you, kind journalists, remember to ask them about the invasion and censorship of Channel 36, in which they, too, are complicit.

Joe Bageant: A Rambling Reply to Robert

Joe Bageant: A Rambling Reply to Robert: "Most of history is indeed an agreed upon lie, either by consensus of an unenlightened people, or through perpetuation by larger ongoing forces in power at the moment. So I think it's always best to doubt the history that is most readily available to you. It's available for a reason. Maybe even discard history altogether in making current decisions, because history truly does not repeat itself much anymore, if it ever did. We live in our own specific and unique moment, but choose to believe there is precedent so as not to feel so adrift, or to delude ourselves that every previous act and action was destined to deliver us unto what we presently are."
