The Memphis City Council voted last week to change the names of three public parks that are named for prominent confederates, including the first grand wizard of the KKK, Nathan Bedford Forrest. And the KKK is promising to put on their finest white sheets and come out for a good ol’ fashioned protest.

Sen. Jason Rapert, the Arkansas Republican who submitted a bill requiring mandatory invasive ultrasounds for all women seeking to have an abortion (thus proving that he has an extra ‘t’ in his name), has a history. ThinkProgress digs up this video of him speaking to a Tea Party rally saying dumb, racist things:

I am shocked — shocked, I tell you — to find out that a high school football coach in Alabama is a bigot. Bob Grisham, the football coach at Lauderdale County High School, spewed out a bucket full of bigotry and it was all caught on audio tape. Oops.

If you went to the South Carolina Tea Party convention this past weekend, you might well have seen people wearing a t-shirt with President Obama dressed as a witch doctor, complete with a bone through his nose, with a caption reading “Your new doctor — Obamacare.” But you’d be crazy to think the guy who …

The KKK in Virginia is using Obama’s presidency to recruit new members and they say it’s working brilliantly, more than doubling their membership to the largest the group has been in a century. Oh, and they’re not a hate group and how could you possibly think they are?

You knew it had to come down to this, right? If there’s a war on Christmas, you just knew that it was the Jews behind the whole thing, running it all from their seats of extraordinary power in the banking and entertainment industries. But Burt Prelutsky can say that, because he’s Jewish:

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has a new book out that tells very personal stories of her rise from an extremely poor family to becoming a top student at Princeton and Yale and then to the highest court in the land. The Daily Mail recounts some of those stories:

Ashley Miller’s post about her father disowning her because she’s dating a black man has justifiably gotten a lot of attention, but it has also attracted two of the dumbest commenters in human history to spew racist bullshit. The first is a guy named Larry, but I’ll ignore him for now to talk about the …

Vox Day’s latest column at the Worldnutdaily looks at far-right “independence” movements in the UK and elsewhere and suggests that they are models for what should happen in America as white people blame all the bad things on dark-skinned immigrants and demand the right to secede:

If you haven’t seen this post by Ashley Miller, it’s a must-read. Ashley, you see, is in love. She’s found a guy she’s just crazy about and she took him home to meet the family for Thanksgiving. And now her father has disowned her as a result. Because her boyfriend is black. I’ll paste just …

I don’t know if you guys have seen the site Hello There, Racists, but it’s alternately appalling and amusing. Okay, mostly appalling and vile, but it’s funny to see all the bad spelling and poor grammar that inevitably accompanies musings like this:

Bryan Fischer went on one of his usual idiotic and racist rants, this time aimed at immigrants. He says the real reason we vote Democratic is because they are all socialists — and that’s why we need to keep them out, so Republicans will win elections. Way to tar an entire race of people with …

A white supremacist group held an anti-immigration rally in Charlotte, North Carolina over the weekend and they were met by a delightful counter-protest by a bunch of people dressed in clown suits — a group much larger than the racist group, apparently.

One of the many people who Tweeted after last week’s election to call President Obama a nigger (no, I’m not going to say “n-word” — we all know what the word is and there is no need for euphemism here) has been fired and seems to be baffled by those who think it was racist. …
