Marie Antoinette was the Queen of France during the French Revolution. Marie Antoinette has gone down in history as the arrogant and apathetic monarch who said “let them eat cake” when told the peasants were starving because they had no bread. The daughter of Francis I and Maria Theresa, Emperor and Empress of the Holy Roman Empire, Marie left Austria for France in 1770 to marry the prince of France. As the revolution swept Paris in 1789, Louis and Marie tried to flee but failed. Marie and Louis XVI were stuck as prisoners at the palace at Tuileries. They tried to get help from royal supporters in England, Prussia and Austria, but in 1792 they were arrested and charged with treason. Louis was beheaded 21 January 1793 and Marie was beheaded 16 October 1793. According to legend, Marie’s last words were an apology to the executioner for accidently stepping on his foot.
An anachronism is an error in chronology, especially a chronological misplacing of persons, events, objects, or customs in regard to each other. The item is often an object, but may be a verbal expression, a technology, a philosophical idea, a musical style, a material, a custom, or anything else so closely associated with a particular period in time that it would be incorrect to place it outside its proper domain.
O’REILLY TO MARC LAMONT HILL…”YOU LOOK LIKE A COCAINE DEALER”..
Yeah, O’Reilly said it. It was an off-the-cuff remark, so the lefty blogs naturally filed it under “implicit racism.” Of course they assume O’Reilly’s statements were a consequence of Marc Lamont Hill being black. Not because he is young, kinda shady, or an Obama supporter. Nope. None of those reasons are plausible when its a black man. Which seems almost like explicit racism, you know, the kind that is ok to liberals. But hey, maybe they don’t know, which I guess makes them implicit racists. It’s hard to tell between two! Almost like there’s no difference..
Six blogs, including NewsOne, picked the story up; One Washington Post writer covered it, who believe it or not, was an white man! I know right?! Hard to find em at the Washington Post!

CNN ANCHOR AIRS THE WORD “N*GGER”…
I typically lay off CNN. Unlike MSNBC, they have actually desegregated their bathroom stalls. I kid. What amazed me about this, was that everyone focused on the word “n*gger,” as if removing the slur would of made Coolio’s “Fantastic Voyage” an acceptable track. After all, under the principles of liberal accusations, isn’t it an absurd injustice be connecting “rap music” to the “black woman”? You know, like “cocaine dealer” to “black man?” But hey I guess scripted racial stereotypes are an acceptable when its perpetuated by an authentic african-american like Kyra Phillips..
Of the three, this got the most coverage: 12 blogs, 1 Newspaper (the same WaPo column mentioning O’Reilly). I’m most certain these numbers would of been NO different if “n*gger” was aired on FNC!

BILL MAHER DEFINES A “REAL BLACK PRESIDENT” BY HIS ABILITY TO STAY STRAPPED
Maher exemplifies the PC liberal that uses the guise of “political incorrectness” to attack religion, be an idiot, say something racist. Kyra Phillips and O’Reilly both give examples of how MSM and leftist blogs express implicit racism by automatically assuming connections between certain stereotypes and black people. Luckily, these suspicions can be strengthened with liberals like Maher, who are actually explicitly racist in their willingness to connect black people to guns and violence. Yeah, it was just a joke. But it was a scripted joke, done by a man who has relentlessly compared the Tea Party to the KKK.
Luckily we have the MSM policing progress, willing to attack any white man with power that says something racial. Just ask Harry “Negro Dialect” Reid, who was mercilessly eviscerated by Keith Olbermann for his comments about Obama. Yeah, it doesn’t matter if your’e on “right side of history,” the liberal progress police will hunt you down!
Truth is, the only time “political incorrectness” is deemed racist by the MSM, is when you disagree with their leftist assumptions of the world. The media grants immunity to those who, like Maher, agree with their political view. Proof is in the pudding. Google news search of the Maher story? 0. At least Mediaite picked it up.

Look how Bill Maher defines a black president. It’s funny how people who constantly witness “subliminal racism” are actually the subliminal racists themselves.
What do you think of when you see a 103 black woman driving down the street? Well if you work at CNN, it’s Coolio’s “Fantastic Voyage.” Would love to see the media outrage if this were FNC.
Bill O’Reilly told Marc Lamont Hill that he looked like a “cocaine dealer.” Sure the blogs will brand O’Reilly a racist for it. Feel bad I even noticed it. Kinda linking O’Reilly’s observation to the fact Marc Lamont is black, is kind of racist in itself. Knew someone else would post it though.
If the liberal media uses one protester sign as proof the tea party is “racist,” shouldn’t the media also support deporting all illegals after only one commits murder..? Or maybe after an even more atrocious crime, like being the janitor that walks in on Olbermann and the pencil sharpener. It would explain MSNBC’s diverse lineup. Or maybe it has something to do with that “historic” healthcare legislation that is soo much popular than the “controversial” immigration law…
When Rand Paul went on Rachel Maddow show, he made the philosophical argument that the1964 Civil Rights Act is unconstitutional and in theory should be repealed. His argument was based on the idea that either people wouldn’t support a segregated restaurant or the Feds could amend Constitution to make segregation illegal. The assumption he makes is ironically based on a liberal tenet: that society is “evolving,” that people learn over time to empathize with others. It’s a concept someone like Rachel Maddow typically embraces.
Which leads me to ask: if Liberals believe we are an “evolving society,” shouldn’t they be the ones seeking less government intervention into our lives? I mean, as a young child grows older and wiser, don’t his parents usually give him more responsibility and more freedom? It seems a bit odd that it’s the most “liberal” administration ever seeks to take the most amount freedom from the individual.
Truth is, leftists only believe in the evolution of one segment of society: the intellectual class.

any ladies need a “survival daddy”? U kno wat they say bout guys with big crisis gardens..@broliath
Jesse Jackson’s complaint was in 2007. Three years later it’s still “All Day, All Night, All White” at MSNBC. Probably the best quote in the history of man. Jon Stewart can you hear me?
Obama gonna shit himself when he realizes Americas iPods make phone calls and access the internet@broliath
Andrew Wilkow hands down best in the business.
Apparently Obama hates iPods. Funny how people w/ blackberries think iPods are still relevant.@broliath
Is Ed Shultz the “Robert Byrd” of MSNBC? Does he effectively capture the “sons of slave masters” demo?@broliath
