I'm happy for Leanne. The CA, like many newspapers, is on a swift downhill slide to oblivion. Shrinking ad revenues -- not to mention the cost-cutting shrinkage of the actual size of the paper -- tell the world, "We're in trouble." I know other CA alums who jumped ship before they were laid off. Leanne is wise to bail for the sake of job security. St. Mary's isn't going anywhere, and I think she's a good fit for the position.
RE: VA Gentlewoman’s post “Perhaps instead of reading what the media tells you about these people, you should got to their own writings and research these people themselves, hear what *they* have to say. By now you understand the media can't be trusted in our political climate--why do you trust them in this one instance? Don't depend on the media to do your for you--do your own.” Well, guess what? I took your suggestion, VA, and spent some quality time at the library. Digging through their own newsletters, books and speeches (as well as a couple of video clips) I found these nuggets of wisdom from David Duke and some of the distinguished speakers invited to the Whispering Woods throw-down. Take a look... “Our clear goal must be the advancement of the white race and separation of the white and black races. This goal must include freeing of the American media and government from subservient Jewish interests.” -- David Duke
“The important thing to note is that a German victory would have assured that the life-span of the White world would have been extended for many centuries more than now seems likely; indeed, for the "thousand years" promised by Hitler.” --- Willis Carto, from American Mercury, Summer 1973 “The Heritage Front's mandate is to preserve our heritage - in a militantly pro-White, militantly positive sense. We are proud of who we are, our history and accomplishments.” -- Paul Fromm, describing the neo-Nazi organization Heritage Front, which hosts celebrations in honor of Hitlers’ birthday. (Fromm can be seen in a video of one of these events, speaking to the attendees.) "Obama as president would do tremendous damage to the cause of maintaining the purity of the white race. Liberals would use him as an example to argue in schools, in churches, on TV, etc., 'Why, if your daughter married a black, her child could one day grow up to become President – like Obama!" -- Dr. Edward Fields, Editor (and chiropractor), in his newsletter 'The Truth At Last.'
Here ya go -- take a look at who's slated to speak at David Duke's little get-together next week. You guys can do the Google research on these "enlightened" people yourselves. I copied/pasted this directly from DD's site:
"As organizer of this EURO Conference, I welcome Willis Carto of American Free Press/Barnes Review, Don Black of Stormfront, Dr. Edward Fields and James Edwards of the Political Cesspool Radio Program as co-hosts for the event.
Memphis is one of the most centrally-located cities in the USA and is a major airline hub. It is convenient as a destination from almost anywhere, and easy to get to for our overseas participants as well.
The Conference will have two exciting days of non-stop speeches, music, and media presentations - plus hold a wonderful banquet on Saturday night with a keynote speech and wonderful live music.
It will be held in a first class, premier hotel in a beautiful and secure country setting that is still just a short ride from the Memphis region airport. This fine hotel has agreed to a reduction of almost 40 percent off their normal rates.
There will be a number of well-known, exciting speakers from overseas, as well as many major American and Canadian speakers including, Willis Carto, Don Black, Paul Fromm, Sam Dickson, James Edwards, Lady Michele Renouf of the UK, Dr. Tom Sunic of Croatia and a number of other famous individuals who will be announced at the meeting itself. Some speakers will be announced at the conference due to the fact that the Federal Government has sought to prevent entry to leaders of European Rights organizations and political movements."
OMG!!! I'm laughing so hard at VA Gentlewoman!!! A "liberal" attending a pro-white power conference??? You are totally, sadly deluded, and as much a Liberal as Dubya. Among many other positive things, liberals believe in the advancement of multi-racial harmony. They do NOT support and attend events that involve current or former members of the KKK. As I've said before, David Duke, who you obviously worship, has PERSONALLY INVITED speakers who celebrate Hitler's freakin' birthday! Do your homework, OK? Google the morons who are on the agenda for this hate-fest. No amount of spin or gloss can hide what these people are really about.
Should have mentioned that "liberals who didn't have a clue" is mentioned in the beginning of the Bob Herbert article I lifted this from, describing the common opinion held by the GOP.
"Without the extraordinary contribution of liberals — from the mightiest presidents to the most unheralded protesters and organizers — the United States would be a much, much worse place than it is today.
There would be absolutely no chance that a Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin could make a credible run for the highest offices in the land. Conservatives would never have allowed it.
Civil rights? Women’s rights? Liberals went to the mat for them time and again against ugly, vicious and sometimes murderous opposition. They should be forever proud.
The liberals who didn’t have a clue gave us Social Security and unemployment insurance, both of which were contained in the original Social Security Act. Most conservatives despised the very idea of this assistance to struggling Americans. Republicans hated Social Security, but most were afraid to give full throat to their opposition in public at the height of the Depression.
“In the procedural motions that preceded final passage,” wrote historian Jean Edward Smith in his biography, “FDR,” “House Republicans voted almost unanimously against Social Security. But when the final up-or-down vote came on April 19 , fewer than half were prepared to go on record against.”
Liberals who didn’t have a clue gave us Medicare and Medicaid. Quick, how many of you (or your loved ones) are benefiting mightily from these programs, even as we speak. The idea that Republicans are proud of Ronald Reagan, who saw Medicare as “the advance wave of socialism,” while Democrats are ashamed of Lyndon Johnson, whose legislative genius made this wonderful, life-saving concept real, is insane.
When Johnson signed the Medicare bill into law in the presence of Harry Truman in 1965, he said: “No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine.”
Reagan, on the other hand, according to Johnson biographer Robert Dallek, “predicted that Medicare would compel Americans to spend their ‘sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was like in America when men were free.’ ”
Without the many great and noble deeds of liberals over the past six or seven decades, America would hardly be recognizable to today’s young people. Liberals (including liberal Republicans, who have since been mostly drummed out of the party) ended legalized racial segregation and gender discrimination.
Humiliation imposed by custom and enforced by government had been the order of the day for blacks and women before men and women of good will and liberal persuasion stepped up their long (and not yet ended) campaign to change things. Liberals gave this country Head Start and legal services and the food stamp program. They fought for cleaner air (there was a time when you could barely see Los Angeles) and cleaner water (there were rivers in America that actually caught fire).
Liberals. Your food is safer because of them, and so are your children’s clothing and toys. Your workplace is safer. Your ability (or that of your children or grandchildren) to go to college is manifestly easier.
It would take volumes to adequately cover the enhancements to the quality of American lives and the greatness of American society that have been wrought by people whose politics were unabashedly liberal. It is a track record that deserves to be celebrated, not ridiculed or scorned."
Just felt like sharing the wisdom of Bob Herbert.
Hey, Dr. Max, VA Gentlewoman, etc.... How can you defend David Duke? He is HOSTING this convention. This convention features speakers HE INVITED. Among the speakers is Don Black, founder of Stormfront (one of the most popular hate sites on the web). Don Black became Imperial Wizard of the KKK after Duke resigned the post. And as a member in good standing of the American Nazi Party, I'm sure he supported equal rights for all.
Another guest speaker invited by Duke is Paul Fromm -- a Canadian Neo-Nazi leader who celebrates Hitler's birthday, has ties to the KKK, leads a group called the CFIRC which opposes the immigration of non-whites, and was stripped of his license to teach school last year because of his hate-filled ideology.
These are only two of several equally-enlightened speakers set to hit the mic in Memphis come November.
