An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

A wide spectrum of black conservatives expressed outrage Wednesday at Rep. Andre Carson’s remark that tea party members would like to see black people “hanging on a tree” — and some even called on Carson to resign.
During a speech at a recent caucus event in Miami, the Indiana Democrat said conservative members of Congress would “love to see us [blacks] as second-class citizens,” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me . . . hanging on a tree.”
Carson, the whip leader of the Congressional Black Caucus responsible for organizing the black vote in Congress, also alleged that tea party activism stems from Jim Crow racism.
“Some of them in Congress are comfortable with where we were 50 or 60 years ago. But this is a new day with a black president and a black congressional caucus.”

When are these fools going to stop living in the past? When are the black Democrats going to admit it was their own party that worked hard to keep the black community enslaved, and continue to do so with the invisible chains of dependency? You’d think, instead working overtime to be divisive by spreading such blatant lies, they would be working to unite. However, I’m of the mind….they don’t want us united as a nation.
All I can say is that their bitterness will destroy them in the end. Such people have no business being in positions of leadership, and should apologize, then resign.
Liberals’ View of Darwin Unable to Evolve
by Ann Coulter
Amid the hoots at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry for saying there were “gaps” in the theory of evolution, the strongest evidence for Darwinism presented by these soi-disant rationalists was a 9-year-old boy quoted in The New York Times.
After his mother had pushed him in front of Perry on the campaign trail and made him ask if Perry believed in evolution, the trained seal beamed at his Wicked Witch of the West mother, saying, “Evolution, I think, is correct!”
That’s the most extended discussion of Darwin’s theory to appear in the mainstream media in a quarter-century. More people know the precepts of kabala than know the basic elements of Darwinism.
