The FALSE OUTRAGE of the right about "NEGRO"...

Flashback: Rush Limbaugh plays "BARACK THE MAGIC NEGRO" on his racist show:

On the March 19 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, host Rush Limbaugh highlighted a March 19 Los Angeles Times op-ed that described Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) as "running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination -- the 'Magic Negro'"

Latching onto L.A. Times op-ed, Limbaugh sings "Barack, The Magic Negro"

Memo to media: Statement attributed to Clinton in Game Change is not a direct quote

On page 218 of their book Game Change, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin write:

But Bill [Clinton] then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

Note the lack of quote marks around the statement attributed to Clinton.

Shocking pictures have come to light revealing the extent of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib - and it's much worse than anyone imaged. The photos depict new incidents of homicide, torture and sexual humiliation and indicate a broader pattern of abuse than was previously understood. "We now know there was systemic and widespread abuse", states ACLU lawyer Amrit Singh. She hopes the photos release will lead to a proper inquiry

Unbelievable GITMO Reunion of guard and detainees!

(...they're PEOPLE just like us??? Not like the media and government is portraying them???)

New to Facebook, Brandon Neely was searching the site for acquaintances in 2008 when he typed in the names of some of the detainees he had guarded during his tenure as a prison guard at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

Mr. Neely, an Army veteran who spent six months at the prison in 2002, sent messages to one of the freed men, Shafiq Rasul, and was astonished when Mr. Rasul replied. Their exchanges sparked a face-to-face meeting, arranged by the BBC, which will be shown on Tuesday. Mr. Neely, who has served as the president of the Houston chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War, says his time at Guantánamo now haunts him, and has granted confessional-style interviews about the abuses he says he witnessed there. In a message to Mr. Rasul, Mr. Neely apologized for his role in the imprisonment.

NYTimes: Gitmo Reunion - Brandon Neely, center, was a Guantánamo Bay guard, and Ruhal Ahmed, left, and Shafiq Rasul were prisoners.

Do you trust NEPA cops with TASERS???

My opinion is that tasers should be banned. They should've been banned when the FIRST person died from being tasered. Since then, HUNDREDS (and counting) have died from police tasering them! This proves that the companies that make tasers put profits over safety. Isn't the fact that HUNDREDS (and counting) have died from being tasered by police enough proof that they should be banned?

NEPA begins the era of police using tasers.

Mother watched son tasered to death.

Well over 300 TASER deaths since 2001.
