  • Bernie Sanders' War on Chinese Bobbleheads! In the midst of a massive fiscal crisis, a take-no-prisoners budget battle, a historically long recession, and two (make that three) wars, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) knows what really matters. He's pushing the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC to only sell bobble-heads, T-shirts, snow-globes, and other souvenirs that are made in America. After getting a letter from and taking a meeting with the self-described Green Mountain State socialist, the folks at the Smithsonian have agreed to increase the amount of domestically produced junk for sale in their gift shops. They're even constructing a new gift shop solely to products manufactured in America that will be called the Price of Freedom.

  • Free Talk Live - Ian Reads Immigration Bigot's Email With Southern Accent From Free Talk Live's 10/15/08 Show
  • SEIU Represents Undocumented Workers As I noted awhile back, when discussing the violent propensities of the white nationalists who have invaded the Tea Party movement: One can't help but feel a sense of foreboding about what's likely to occur when immigration reform comes up on the national plate ... These people are already organized and already inclined to violence. If you thought the town-hall teabaggers went nuts over health-care reform, just wait. We later got a prime example of this in the New Hampshire teabagger who shouted, "We don't need illegals. Send 'em home on a bus, send 'em home with a bullet in the head the second time!" Of course, the problem isn't just the violence. Accompanying it, at every turn, is an overpowering nativist racism that opposes immigrants of every kind, and not merely the illegal ones. Right-wingers love to whine that simply opposing illegal immigration brings charges of racism. That's what Glenn Beck was on about yesterday on his show. Beck: The progressives must reactivate their far-left base, they must smear their detractors. They will call me and Fox News and anyone else if you believe that we are a nation of laws and not of men, you're going to be called nasty names. And they're not going to listen to any of the facts that you have to say. That kinda sounds like Beck making excuses in advance, doesn't it? Because, heaven knows, the folks at Fox haven't indulged in racist stereotypes when discussing immigrants and crime, or don't reflexively demean them as "illegals ...

  • My Pagan Altar Yule 2010 This is a video showing first my old altar and then my new altar set up for Yule, which I am now celebrating here in the Southern Hemisphere. I am an Eclectic Pagan from Auckland, New Zealand, and am an Outer Court member of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. I am also involved in two Pagan groups here in NZ, Auckland Pagans and Guardian-Elm Circle. The reason my old altar is no longer around is because my parents decided they no longer wanted all my Pagan stuff in my room and took it all away (to keep a long story short). Anyhow, I have a couple of nice simple altars set up which I am content with until I move out :) Feel free to comment and let me know what you think! Happy Solstice!

  • Burn the Arizona State Flag Today, I'm going to burn the Arizona State Flag. I know I recently torched the Great Seal of the State of Arizona to protest the hideously racist, nativist, Minutemen mentalitied SB 1070. Well, I couldn't stop there because Gov. Jan Brewer couldn't stop there. She recently signed a bill into law that outlaws Latino studies programs. Um...in case you Arizonans are still addled by your drinking binges with Sheriff Joe and are thus unable to notice, Latino's are a majority of your population. In fact, many of these families have lived there - legally - for hundreds of years. When it was a part of Mexico, as a matter of fact. I think it behooves everyone to know a thing or two about the original and majority population, particularly how they think and feel about the likes of Sheriff Joe, for instance. But no, you Arizonans think you can convert them into good little white people by banning the study of their own heritage. And for that reason, I am obliged to burn your state flag. Geez Louise, there's lots of retarded, knuckledragging troglodytes in Arizona these days, eh? I mean, this is the state of Evan Meacham, JD "I am not a birther" Hayworth. This is also a state that wouldn't adopt a Martin Luther King holiday. Who do you people think you are? Mississippi? At any rate, enjoy!
  • TAX DAY TEA PARTY 2010 PLEASE HELP US SHARE THIS VIDEO. On Thursday, April 15, Tea Partiers from around the country gathered in the nation's capital to protest what they percieved to be egregious increases in taxation under the Obama administration, despite taxes having actually been lowered for 98% of working Americans. The usual anti-science and nativist rhetoric, and praise of Fox News personalities, ensued. This NEW LEFT MEDIA film was produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviewer) and Erick Stoll (camera operator) with additional camera work from Kasey Hosp.

  • Grass History Of Cannabis Marijuana [1/6] Grass the history of cannabis / marijuana Director: Ron Mann Writer: Solomon Vesta Narrator: Woody Harrelson This film explores the history of the American government's official policy on marijuana in the 20th century. Rising with nativist xenophobia with Mexican immigration and their taste for smoking marijuana, we see the establishment of a wrong headed federal drug policy as a crime issue as oppposed to a public health approach. Fuelled by prejudice, hysterical propaganda and political opportunism undeterred by voices of reason on the subject, we follow the story of a costly and futile crusade against a substance with questionable ill effects that has damaged basic civil liberites. The film places much of the blame for marijuana criminalization on Harry Anslinger (the first American drug czar) who promoted false information about marijuana to the American public as a means towards abolition. The film follows the history of federal policies and social attitudes towards marijuana, beginning at the turn of the twentieth century. The history presented is broken up into parts, approximately the length of a decade. Each decade is introduced by paraphrasing the official attitude towards marijuana at the time (eg "Marijuana will make you insane" or "Marijuana will make you addicted to heroin"), and closed by providing a figure for the amount of money spent during that period on the "war on marijuana." The film is completely composed of archival footage, much of which is from ...

  • Police officer set on fire during Athens riot! ★☭ KGB OFFICIAL REPORTS (INTERNATIONAL&IMPARTIAL) PARTISAN WORLD NEWS ★☭ Immigrant rights have been a highly charged issue for thirty years, bringing important shifts in the political landscape. The focal points have generally been ballot propositions of a nativist bent, which have summoned counter-mobilizations from communities of colour. A 1986 proposition made English the official language of California, while in 1994 Proposition 187, backed by Republican Governor Pete Wilson, tried to bar illegal immigrants from access to schools and social services; though nullified by the courts, it pushed millions of the state's new citizens to register and vote, mostly as Democrats. In 1996, Proposition 209 ended California's affirmative-action programmes. More recently the focus has been on Arizona's new anti-immigrant law; protests have swept through California's Latino communities. [20] Along with the new demography has come a new political geography. The old split was North--South, with a century of Bay Area domination of state government followed in the 1980s by the counter-revolution of a New Right bursting out of populous Southern California. Now, the geographic split runs East--West, between the coast and the interior valleys. Broadly speaking, the coast is rich, urbane, polyglot and liberal; the interior is poor, workaday, Christian, rural (or only recently suburbanized) and conservative. While the population of the interior is increasingly working-class and Latino ...

Sheriff Joe came from Maricopa County, Arizona, and his cross country self promotional tours have drawn protest across the country. We organized and have been part of several of those protests.

  • Response to CFAW ad FALSE CLAIMS "Studies show that immigration accounts for 40% of the decline in the employment of black men." "Mass immigration" is also the cause of a "decline in black wages." FACTS: The advertisement from the "Coalition for the Future American Worker" (CFAW) cites a single disputed and misleading source regarding the impact of immigration upon African American employment and wages. In selectively citing to one study (while referencing "studies"), the advertisement ignores an overwhelming body of economic research that shows that immigrants in fact have positive or neutral impacts upon employment and wages in the US The President's Council of Economic Advisers recently found that it "is difficult to detect" any negative effect of immigration upon average wages for native workers. The Council, which is comprised of many of the nation's top economists, concluded that immigrants tend to complement (not substitute for) native workers and raise natives' productivity and income. Similarly, Dr. David Card, a researcher and economist at the University of California, has found that cities with large immigrant populations reflect little wage difference when compared with cities with few immigrants. CFAW ignores this scholarly study, which may be found on the same website (the National Bureau of Economic Research) to which it cites in support of its divisive, nativist rhetoric. Dr. Steven Pitts, an economist at the Center for Labor Research and Education ...

Crude animation attempts to punctuate the sardonic and off-color humor supplied by political raconteur Warren W. Brown(?). Though the jokes are somewhat esoteric by today's standards, the tone straddles between bombastic entertainment and nativist propaganda. Targets include labor activist Eugene Debs, Prohibition, the League of Nations, the Wobblies, Russian & German instability, the Bolsheviks, and fat women in bathing suits and burnt Christmas pudding.
