"Blackface" Outrage Overload *Major Eyeroll* ("JLP News," Fri., Feb 8, 2019)
TOP OF FIRST HOUR:
(CNN) Former Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) died at 92. He was pro-abortion, a career politician, in office from 1955-2015 (over 59 years), during which time Deerborn & Detroit went to hell. Dingell had a big following on Twitter and was known for being anti-Trump, calling TRUMP “corrupt,” SMH. He wrote a book with a foreword by Pres. George W Bush and VP Joe Biden. (Dingell was most recently succeeded by John Conyers, another 50-years-running career politician, black, who got #MeToo’d by female staffers.)
(CNN) Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion law from taking effect. Opponents said it could decimate "safe and legal" abortions in the state. The court voted 5-4 with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court's four liberals. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote a dissent. Louisiana's Unsafe Abortion Protection Act was blocked since its enactment in 2014, and would have required an abortion doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where the abortion is performed — the idea being to provide a higher level of physician competence. The Center for Reproductive Rights wanted to keep the law from going into effect. Roberts switched from his decision in a similar case from TX in 2016
(NY Times) Gucci and Adidas Apologize and Drop Products Called Racist. Gucci had an $890 black-knit women’s balaclava (turtle-neck-looking-sweater) that could be pulled up over the lower half of the wearer’s face. The sweater included bright red lips ringing an opening for the mouth, a detail widely denounced on social media as evoking blackface imagery. (Complex) Adidas made an (almost) all-white shoe to celebrate black culture, so the blacks got mad and confused. It was inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, and the insole said “Celebrating Black Culture.” They officially withdrew it after a backlash.
(Wash. Post) A Florida politician allegedly made a habit of licking men’s faces. She has now resigned. Nancy Oakley, a city commissioner in Madeira Beach, allegedly had a “habit of licking men that either she was attracted to or thought that she had authority over.” In 2012 she allegedly sexually assaulted one man while doing it when she was drunk, then taking a swing at a woman who called it inappropriate. The man didn’t file a complaint for 5 years for fear of losing his job.
(The Sun) Jeff Bezos the Amazon billionaire (who’s separated from his wife and has 4 kids) accuses The National Enquirer (and its owner) of trying to BLACKMAIL him after they ‘threatened to publish explicit nude photos’ of him with his mistress, news anchor Lauren Sanchez-Whitesell (she’s separated from her husband with whom she has two kids; she also had a son from a prior relationship with an NFL player). Bezos says they’re trying to force him to call off a probe into how the mag acquired his private texts — as they had exposed his affair that he was cheating with the TV anchor. Bezos also owns Wash. Post, but wrote his piece in the far-left anti-conservative platform called Medium.
BOTTOM OF FIRST HOUR:
(Fox News) Justin Bieber says he had ‘legitimate problem with sex,’ saved himself for marriage with Hailey Baldwin. Bieber, 24, said in a Vogue interview he’d been celibate for a year when he got back with Hailey Baldwin (daughter of Stephen Baldwin, who’s the pro-Trump brother of angry Alec Baldwin). Bieber told Vogue: “He [God] doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He’s like, 'I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain.' I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that. I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior. When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life. I was like, 'Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.'” They married in a New York City courthouse in September after 12 weeks of dating. Bieber admitted that sex was one reason for the quick marriage.
(The Independent) HAILEY BIEBER REVEALS SHE SUFFERS BREAKOUTS BECAUSE OF BIRTH CONTROL. She’s a model, and says: 'For me, I’d take that over having a baby right now.'

(Producer note: Last bit of Super Bowl news about cowardly anti-American political correctness.) (Wash. Examiner last week) CBS rejected a pro-flag ‘Just Stand’ Super Bowl ad that an answer to Kaepernick’s Nike ad. A veteran-owned apparel company Nine Line Apparel ’s Super Bowl TV ad would have punched back at Nike's promotion of Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem protests but was rejected by CBS. The ad features soldiers, first responders, and images of military graves decorated with American flags and gives credit to them for protecting the rights of those like Kaepernick — narrated by Benghazi survivor U.S. Marine Mark Geist. The ad valued loyalty over “dreams.”
(Fox News) Trump calls Schiff 'political hack' as Dems open new Russia probe, send transcripts to Mueller. At the SOTU, Trump decried "the politics of revenge" and "ridiculous partisan investigations." The next day, Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced a new, wide-ranging probe into the president's foreign business dealings and Russian election meddling. Trump told reporters, "He has no basis to do that. He’s just a political hack who’s trying to build a name for himself. It’s just presidential harassment and it’s unfortunate, and it really does hurt our country." Last November Trump called Schiff "little Adam Schitt."
(Fox News) The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Virginia racial scandals: ‘It’s deeper than just blackface.’ He said: “The legacy of slavery and segregation and degradation is well placed, and I would suspect these humiliating black-faced type minstrel stuff is taking place in a lot of frats right now.” (Producer note: I hope so!) Jackson mentioned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “infamous” (infamous according to Fox News) “monkey” comment. (He told voters not to "monkey this up" by voting for black Democrat Andrew Gillum.) He said it’s worse when this “racism” seeps into legislation or policy. He said the people who voted for them “will determine the fate, because … they have power of being the redeemer,” he said. “This legacy of racial degradation, racial exploration, it’s deep and ugly.” (Producer note: I think Jesse Jackson is shallow and ugly.)
BOTTOM OF SECOND HOUR:
(Fox News) Actress Michelle Rodriguez (who’s part black) defended Liam Neeson, saying: 'Racists don’t make out with the race that they hate.' Many libs are calling the 66yo actor Neeson “racist” for wanting to kill a “black bastard” after one allegedly raped someone close to him. The 40yo Rodriguez said: “It’s all f---ing bulls---. Liam Neeson is not a racist. Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’s throat. You can’t call him a racist ever. Racists don’t make out with the race that they hate, especially in the way he does with his tongue — so deep down her throat. I don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bulls---. Ignore it. He’s not a racist. He’s a loving man. It’s all lies.”
(TMZ) Black actress, comedian, and former host for The View Sherri Shepherd answered questions on Liam Neeson and Michelle Rodriguez: She says Neeson should have kept that to himself and his friends. She calls Michelle Rodriguez’s defense as one of the most ignorant statements, and she loves Michelle. Actor and former football player Terry Crews tweeted: I believe that every person on earth is capable of the greatest good, or unspeakable evil. Liam is just describing his fork in the road.
TOP OF THIRD HOUR:
(Daily Mail) Virginia State Senate Majority Leader edited yearbook filled with blackface photos, Confederate flags and slurs. Republican Tommy Norment edited the yearbook at the Virginia Military Academy in 1968, which featured men in blackface, Confederate flags and racial and anti-Semitic slurs. Norment said: 'The use of blackface is abhorrent in our society and I emphatically condemn it,’ and he says he did not take or pose for the photos in question. (As you know Dem. Gov. Ralph Northam apologized but then said it wasn’t him in a photo of a guy dressed black, next to a guy dressed as the KKK, on his page in a 1984 med school yearbook. First in line Lt. Gov. Justin Harris, black pro-abortion Dem., is accused by a liberal woman in CA of “sexual assault” at Dem. Nat’l Convention 2004. Second-in-line Dem. AG Mark Herring, who ignored state law and brough “same-sex marriage” to the state of Virginia, also admitted to posing in “blackface” to dress up like rappers as a teen.)
(TMZ) Rap icon KURTIS BLOW says the Virginia ATTY GENERAL IS UGLY, DISGRACEFUL For Wearing so-called “Blackface” with wigs and brown make-up. 57yo Democrat Mark Herring admitted dressing up with friends as rappers they listened to, naming Kurtis Blow, as a 19yo college student way back in 1980. Kurtis said as a father, husband, minister, etc., he was shocked, it’s disrespectful, degrading. He says he’s “praying” for Herring right now. He suggested whites should pay tributes without using “the blackface” like what Jimmy Fallon did. He called it a “teachable moment” nowadays. He says we can forgive Herring but he owes retribution or commitment to help blacks.
(Daily Mail) Florida Republican Anthony Sabatani, 30, says blackface high school photo where he dressed as his friend just 14 years ago is 'NOT racist' and refuses to resign 'because it has been taken out of context.' He wore a basketball shirt and gold jewelry back in high school, and said he and his black friend dressed up as each other as a prank. Democrats want him to resign. But a fellow Republican refuses to remove him, saying none of us are the same as we were at age 16. He was a city commissioner in Eustis in 2017, and invited cities that are getting rid of their confederate monuments to donate them to his city, saying they’d gladly display our nation’s history.
(Fox News) Rep. Steve Scalise says House Dems refused to let him testify at gun violence hearing. Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee refused to let him testify at a hearing on gun violence about his experience as a victim of the congressional baseball practice shooting (he was shot two years ago!). Dems did not allow his testimony at the hearing --“Preventing Gun Violence: A Call to Action.” Scalise said: “I thought it outrageous that they want to try to silence this message, because in the end I’m still going to get my message out. They can’t silence this issue.” Nancy Pelosi said she was “saddened” that Trump did not mention gun violence at SOTU.
BOTTOM OF THIRD HOUR:
(BTW: Somali Muslim SJW Ilhan Omar tweeted a screenshot of Jesse’s tweet about immoral democrat women back in January — we just came across it). She said: “Thank you for making a beautiful guide of representive of the American people we are, whether you intended or not. So proud of my sisters…”) MORE ILHAN OMAR STUFF FROM TRAVIS… She tweeted a pic of herself wearing a Muslim hijab with a reference to Childish Gambino’s evil rap song “This Is America” She refers to the president as “individual 1” as a disrespectful reference to the “ridiculous partisan investigations” — and she accused him of spouting “hate about immigrants.” She attacks Trump for not joining Climate Change hysteria, and she ignores the need for a wall.
(Fox News) Ilhan Omar appealed to MN AG Keith Ellison on behalf of a radical transgender trying to compete as a power weightlifter. A male-to-wannabe-female trans athlete was banned and they’re crying transphobia. Other stories of trans people being accused of unfair advantage: Last October, an American bronze medalist who lost a world championship cycling race to a transgender so-called “woman” from Canada called the results as unfair. In June, a transgender high school student, born a male, dominated female competition in 100- and 200-meter dashes in a Connecticut state track-and-field championship, triggering a backlash from parents. There was also a HS wrestler with the same mental illness.
