He hates white people Andrew, and all things American. If not for the vigilance of brave patriots like you, we'd never hear about these burning issues. Thank you for keeping us infromed.

In his 2012 book "The Amateur," the best-selling author Edward Klein quotes Wright as saying that when Obama joined his church, the newcomer was  ignorant of Christianity and required considerable tutoring.

This author doesn't seem to realize that this is the strongest proof yet that Obama is and always has been a true Christian.

Unless it goes green. Which is a distinct possibility, considering it's Derpcon 5 level.

...and then nobody outside of its intended audience is exposed to the embarrassing dog whistle stupidity by right-wing pundits.

If your politics are left of center, why wouldn't you want stuff like this bumped to commented or greenlit?

Exposure on sites like Fark and Wonkette is one of the reasons so many of these right-wing pundits are considered laughing stocks by the general population now.

There is no bumping on Fark.  The admins don't give a sh*t if you comment on it or not.

You know he demanded a black Easter bunny, right? But his PR people just barely convinced him it was a bad move? True story.

I love the way in the list of times Obama has "officially noted many religious and historic occasions observed by members of other faith" he includes Ash Wednesday.

Seriously, is Kwanzaa still a thing? I never really see it mentioned very often and it's not like I don't live somewhere with a very large African American population.

Why did he hold a kwanzaa ceremony Wednesday instead of celebrating easter?

He'd look pretty silly celebrating easter in december wouldn't he?

Well, the whole business of Jesus being re-incarnated as a chocolate egg laying rabbit is kind of weird, even compared to Kwanzaa.

Why Does a Website Called "Investors" Give a Flying fark About Who Celebrates Holidays?

Nabb1: I hope Sandra Lee provided the cake.

W. Kamau Bell, who was actually raised in a rare Kwanzaa celebrating household, has some pretty good thoughts on the holiday.

"But do you wanna know how you KNOW FOR SURE that as a whole black people don't celebrate Kwanzaa?

NO KWANZAA SONGS!

You can't think of one Kwanzaa song. (You probably can't do it even if you are a part of that one percent.)

Think about it. When black people like something, we tend to write songs about it. LOTS AND LOTS OF SONGS IN FACT! And many of those songs tend to be hit songs. (Cuz we're pretty good at writing songs.) And when black people have hit songs, the world tends to like those songs. So if we liked Kwanzaa in any kind of huge numbers, at some point you would have been in "da club", or a boomin' sound system woulda passed you on the street, or you woulda been watching a Super Bowl commercial and you woulda heard Will.i.am scream (or Jay-Z... or Wyclef... or - back in the day - Flavor Flav), "Drop that crazy Kwanzaa beat!"

Again think about it.

Guns, Cars, & shiny stuff... We, black people, like those things, so we have many hit songs about them.

Sickle Cell, High Blood Pressure, and Kwanzaa... We don't like to think about those things too much, so we don't have any hit songs about them."

Then maybe they would be better-served by making corporate or business arguments instead of racist tirades about religious mythologies and culture.

You're missing the fact that the President is, in fact, Black. He keeps presidenting and not letting those people that are more deserving, like Mitt Romney, take the White House

Agreed. This kind of stupidity needs to be dragged into the light. Everyone should know exactly what these people believe.

As the Democrats have become more centrist, it gets more difficult to argue against their position without turning to the derp side. The Republicans have made that clear in the debate of every issue. Average American believes in abortion in the case of rape or incest? Not us! The average American wants Social Security and Medicare to be solvent for future generations? Not us! Healthcare insurance reform? SCMOSHALISTIM!

Not sure if you remember it, but they had the same problem with Clinton, especially when he passed welfare reform that they had been biatching about for years. Instead of cooperating and taking partial credit, they whined like the little biatches they are; that they ALWAYS are.

Yes, you're missing the idea that an objective reality that interferes with a preconceived agenda must be disregarded, lest a painful cognitive dissonance occur. I hope this has been enlightening for you.
