Why is it when an African-American invokes "God" in the course of politics and how "God" spoke to them about a certain piece of legislation, and how "God" will deliver them from their political "enemies"... no one calls them a religious whackjob?

I have no love for today's redneck neo-con-Bible thumpers who deserve to be ridiculed for their insanity. But if are truly to be an equal people, shouldn't we just call a spade a spade?

You have to compromise principles when dealing identity politics. This is called pragmatism.

Monica Conyers has repeatedly proven herself to be a whack job. This is her first go round whackin' out with god.

Shouldn't they be like trapping and shiat by now? If I lived in Michigan, I'd be working on my trapping skills. Just saying.

Yeah, poor choice of words there, but I agree completely. I never trust anyone who invokes God in the public arena, it's always a manipulative ploy. I'm pretty sure God's not really crazy about it either.

Well with luck, the problems of old Detroit will be washed away when Delta city begins construction in a few years.

"I just want to say that first and foremost publicly that I am a child of God,"

And I want to say last and foreless privately that I am child of Muad'Dib.

That's what I've always wondered about the passage in Bill Ayer's book where Barack Hussein Obama converts (from 'what' we aren't told) to christianity after kneeling before a cross and hearing God speak to him.

I guess it's like SurahAhriman said up-thread. Everyone knows that Barack Hussein is an athiest (with very warm feelings for islam) and that all this 'christian' stuff is just a lie to make middle America feel better about a marxist in the White House.

You can't comment on me, my husband or my family because you don't know us.

Where have I heard this before?

Sorry it's been only 13 years for me.

If you hear someone going on and on about God like that, you better check your wallet, literally or metaphorically. it's like the street equivalent of being bumped by an urchin.

\just sayin.

You obviously dont know a lot of black people, every time a black person faces adversity they fall back on religion to make people think they are a virtuous person. Its really annoying.

/knew it had to be black person before I ever clicked the link
//detroit of course narrowed it way down as well

Screaming for God? What's next, "he's one of yo' boys???"

No more money for Detroit. Not until they gut the government.

I'm gonna start praying for you to fall down an industrial meat grinder feet first with your shoes on, does that count?

OMG this news has made my day!

That dumb-ass, ignorant, Shrek-hatin' racist is finally getting caught in her usual way of life. Cue up the YouTube of the little girl pawning her in City Council Link (new window)

The woman is a disease.

"I just want to say that first and foremost publicly that I am a child of Zeus," she said. "And that all these things that are going on right now that I believe in my heart that Zeus will deliver me from them. ...who continue to lift me up in Apollo's name every day, I just want to say thank you."

Her real version is just as ridiculous.


/thanks Sam Harris

I hope that her corrupt douche of a husband goes down with her. He must have known what she was doing.

"If you don't have the truth to say, then keep your comments to yourself. You can't comment on me, my husband or my family because you don't know us."

I was listening to WWJ (news radio station here in MI) tonight in the car. They played a clip of Conyers saying this, then immediately invited listeners to call in and leave their views of the story on their comment line.

I found it amusing.

The best part is, I read that the bribe was only three grand or something. I mean, really, if you're going to risk going to jail, hold out for some real money. Oh, and it's fun that she's a giant biatch.

Monica Conyers is a twat...what was John thinkin' when he hooked up with that hot ghetto mess.

Now if we could only get rid of the rest of city council.

A little off topic as a former Michigander, but just so people know from outside of that state, if you live outside of Detroit city limits but work there you cannot vote in their city elections. On top of that you pay a Detroit city tax around 1%.

I think that sums the place up pretty much.
