Alarming News

Holler-palooza [posted by Allah]

Our entertainment news tonight comes from Houston, where luminaries of black liberal grievance culture met earlier to try to one-up each other in a spirited game of Who Can Say The Craziest Shit.

Second runner-up goes to Julianne Malveaux for wondering, “What are black folks doing in Utah?” Bonus points for use of the self-consciously authentic term “folks” to describe black people.

First runner-up goes to crowd favorite Louis Farrakhan for asserting that the “the only way to accomplish real freedom and equality was to remove the president”. That’s not a direct quote, incidentally; the actual quote was “the only way to accomplish real freedom and equality was to remove the president, and then replace him with Hitler.”

And the award for Most Righteously Outraged Black Man Whose Righteous Outrage Entitles Him to Spout Inane Bullshit belongs to … Cornel West, for insisting that “There’s a parallel between the killing fields of the slave ships … and the killing fields of the Super Dome.” Congratulations, Dr. West! You win the first copy of Sketches of My Culture ever purchased; I’ll send it to you just as soon as I order it.

Harry Belafonte was there too, but no quotes from him in any of the articles. I like to think he was simply rendered speechless by his indignant, aggrieved rage.

UPDATE: Everyone realizes that the Farrakhan quote about Hitler is a joke, right? A joke based in fact, to be sure, but a joke nonetheless.

Well, according to the last article, Belafonte “again called the president a terrorist”.
Frankly, though, I’d be concerned if he didn’t say it; it’s his new trademark. It would be like if he gave a concert in the 60’s and he didn’t sing the “Banana Boat Song”.
I don’t even understand Farrakhan’s Hitler reference. Is Hitler the savior? What’s the source for that?

Maybe Farrakhan is upset the President is not killing Jews?

The Farrakhan/Hitler quote was a joke. Farrakhan once referred to Hitler as a “great man.” Just goofing on that.

Oh, uh, yeah, I knew that.

If they really want to put on a top-notch bitchfest, they need to have those two black women who testified at the congressional hearings on Katrina. KA-BOOOMMM!
