An interesting article on Washington Post.
"While his father was an atheist and his mother did not practice religion, Obama's stepfather did occasionally attend services at a mosque there."
"his time living and attending school in Indonesia, and the fact that his paternal grandfather, a Kenyan farmer, was a Muslim"
I think he is a Christian and a man who believes in the Bible, but he has Muslim blood?

This video is disturbing. At this point , we are uncertain as to whether or not anyone was actually murdered, but this is a typical Jim Crow Tactic nonetheless to scare people and incite fear. As Progressives , I believe , we are obligated to respond and reject this type of behavior. No matter what our opinions are on Immigration, this is ungodly behavior. No one , and I mean no one should put up with any type of intimidation from Racists, no matter what the circumstance , or who the racist attack is coming from. The behavior illustrated in this video, whether real or fake , was intended to intimidate. Period. Are we going to sit by like the Democrats of olden days when Jim Crow and the Ku Klux Klan went through the Black neighborhoods burning crosses and lynching Blacks? We should not sit by and remain silent.

FINALLY!!! The explanation we've all been waiting for. Alcoholism? Demons from the Past? Left wing conspiracy? Nope.
Republican state Representative Bob Allen, co-chairman for Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign in Florida, "explains" he offered to perform oral sex on an undercover police officer for twenty bucks because he was in the presence of a "pretty stocky black guy," there were "other black guys in the park" and he "didn't want to become a statistic." More on this not-so-brilliant explanation in the Orlando Sentinel here --
Just as a refresher.. Bob Allen is another one of those right wing hypocrite legislators who beats his chest on family values and law enforcement issues. Oh.. if anyone in the comments section can provide the crime statistics for Veteran's Memorial Park in Titusville, I'd love to update the post.

Virginia has a new Macaca moment. Think Progress and others have posted about a letter from Rep. Virgil Goode's letter to supporters that is blatantly racist and ignorant. Here's what TP said in part:
Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) issued a letter to constituents earlier this month in which he declares, "I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States" if we do not adopt "strict immigration policies." The letter was inadvertently sent to a local progressive activist, who shared it with the C-Ville Weekly newspaper.
I tried to call one of his district offices and his DC office, guess what? No voice mail. And no email form. Wouldn't want to hear from real Virginians now would we.
Here's the challenge, call and speak to one of his staff members and post a comment with the results. I'll buy the 100th caller a case of beer. Democrat's honor. Seriously. Contact info. below...
