I think the Republican Party needs to add slavery to the list of subjects they really should STFU about, along with rape.

Frank Taaffe, George Zimmerman’s BFF and frequent CNN guest, got caught saying incredibly racist things but he wants you to know that he really didn’t do it.

Rachel Tabachnik reports that one of the commentators that CNN has brought on repeatedly to talk about the George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn cases, Frank Taaffe, is a racist and a white supremacist. And this isn’t one of those situations where you have to put the worst spin on something. He’s pretty open about it:

This is actually a few months old but I totally missed it at the time. Remember Porter Stansberry, the right-wing con man who sends emails to wingnuts selling his fraudulent financial advice?

Let’s all jump into Professor Peabody’s Wayback Machine and go back to the 1950s to see a Christian minister in Tennessee go on a rant against the evils of interracial relationships, saying they violate God’s will. Except this only happened a few months ago:

Subway announced it was joining forced with Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative to encourage kids to eat healthier and exercise more.
