Lately we have been hearing many tales of white folks calling the police on black people for suspiciously suspicious reasons like napping, golfing, and just standing at the grill in the park. Normally, it results in black people being harassed, insulted, fearful, and often angry at the intrusion into their lives. Recently, however, a white person decided to do their cop calling scheme on a black man who is extra super famous: Ving Rhames. For breaking into his own house. Yeah.

Now, if you have watched a movie in the past 20 years, or perhaps you simply love the Mission Impossible franchise, you know exactly who the fuck Ving Rhames is. And if you called the police saying "a big black man is breaking into a home on my street" then you obviously would know that he lived in that very home you accused him of breaking into. So, why the fuck did his neighbor call the cops? My opinion? Just being racist as hell for shits and giggles. Also, an overabundance of free time that would have been better spent MINDING HER OWN BUSINESS.


From People:

"Rhames said he was watching ESPN in his basketball shorts when he heard a knock at his front door."

Who breaks into someone's home just to slip into something more comfy to watch TV? Especially a black guy in a wealthy neighborhood? Yeah. Not fucking likely.

"I get up, I open the door and there's a red dot pointed at my face from a 9-millimeter [gun], and they say, 'Put up your hands.' Literally," he claimed."

Anyone think it's crazy for the police to point a weapon at you when you're at home watching Sportscenter?

"The police officer who allegedly pointed the gun at him was joined by two other police officers, a police dog and the captain of police — the latter who eventually recognized Rhames not from his film work but because their son's respective high school basketball teams had previously played against each other, Rhames said."

Look here black men, make sure you get your kids on the team so you can be recognized by the white cops whose kid your kid beat at the Pop Warner Championships or whatever your favorite sports equivalent is. Doesn't matter if they can play!!! This is about SAVING YOUR LIVES. You need white dudes to be familiar with your face so they don't SHOOT YOU. K?

"Asked why police were there, Rhames claimed police told them they were responding to a 911 call about a potential burglary. He said to me, 'A woman called 911 [and] said a large black man was breaking into the house. And so we came,' " Rhames told Cane."

So…. This lady literally MADE UP A FELONY CRIME IN PROGRESS, possibly hoping that the cops would shoot him. See what I mean when I say STOP calling the police because black people annoy you, scare you with their blackness, or commit some minor rule violation that would not send you to the emergency hotline if a white person did it.

"When Rhames went across the street to confront the neighbor with a police officer and the police chief by his side, the woman denied it, Rhames alleged in the interview."

No she didn't pretend that she never called the police!!! Yes. She did. Why? Because she knew she had no goddamn business making up lies and calling them in the first fucking place. Honestly? They should have arrested HER for making false reports. Swatting can and has gotten people killed, so it may be time to start holding people responsible for making shit up.

"You can check this with the Santa Monica Police Department. They apologized and what have you," Rhames said. "This is the God's honest truth."

At least they apologize to a living you instead of murdering you and fake apologizing to your family after the settlement over your wrongful death.

"What if it was my son and he had a video game remote or something, and you thought it was a gun?" Rhames said to Cane. "Just like, I don't know, Trayvon had a bag of Skittles."

Yeah. What if? What if we as a nation stopped treating certain colors of people like animals and learned to mind our own business and stop lying, harassing, abusing, and hurting each other? I don't know what would have happened to his son in his own home if he had been playing Xbox or holding the remote control. One thing is certain, there are millions of black men and boys who don't have Ving Rhames' money or instantly recognizable face. What will continue happening to them because of the racial caste system that tells America that blacks are unwanted and subhuman, if we don't change our ways? We can't all be movie stars, but we are here, we are people, and we want to live too.

Black lives matter, America. Please change.

OOH BOY HOWDY, The Federalist is on fire this week! Just this morning we told you about the hilarious Federalist column where one neo-Nazi's mom and dad are Democrats, ipso facto QED NEO-NAZIS ARE THE REAL LIBERALS, FUCKERS! Is America's dumbest woman whose name doesn't rhyme with Cara Snailin' over there being a total fuckin' Mollie Hemingway right now? Sadly, she blocked us on Twitter, so how could we possibly know? The answer is WE DON'T CARE.

But now we have a gem of the Federalist genre, an article written by a whiny-ass gay quisling conservative, who would like to chew on his blankie and whine about how much harder it is out there for a conservative than it is for a gay person. This is a subject we happen to have some knowledge about, because we are super gay! And we know a lot about conservatives, both firsthand -- being subjected to them every single one of our almost four decades of life -- and also from covering extremist right-wing Christians for a very long time. Particularly the kind that tell young, impressionable, vulnerable gay kids that they need to pray away the gay if they want Jesus to exercise some self control and refrain from sending them to a fiery hell for all eternity.

We clicked on the article with high hopes. See if you can spot why:

The House Education and Workforce Committee was all set to have a hearing today all about the horrors that a higher minimum wage would wreak on the economy. Horrors like rich people being slightly less rich. Horrors like business owners claiming they will have to fire people and charge $15 for a McChicken if forced to pay workers a living wage, which they won't actually do because no one will buy a $15 McChicken and they would go out of business if they tried that, and they already don't hire more people than the bare minimum they can get away with. Horrors like poor people not being "motivated" to work harder and get better jobs that do not pay them an amount no human being could possibly live on.

Alas, as Politico reports, it was not to be, as committee members discovered their big witness for the hearing, San Diego State University economist Joseph Sabia (pictured above in a Glamour Shot from his archived website), was kind of a wacko.

Sabia, as it turns out, once had a blog called "No Shades Of Gray," in which he wrote many columns of an extremely homophobic and sexist persuasion. In one of these columns, in 2002, Sabia was very mad about one man's lawsuit against several fast food giants for contributing to his health and obesity problems by failing to disclose the nutritional information of the food they sold. In retrospect, I think most people are now on board with these chains being required to post calorie counts and other nutritional information, but in 2002, Sabia was convinced that requiring them to do this would be an assault on freedom for all Americans everywhere. His response to this was to try and attempt a Jonathan Swift posture and suggest taxing gay sex, which he claimed leads to "disastrous health consequences."

Because sure, that's the same thing, basically.


In gay sex, we have an activity that is clearly leading to disastrous health consequences. What rational person would engage in this sort of activity? There is only one solution - let's tax it.

"Come on, Sabia," you say, "how are you going to enforce these taxes? Are you going to send government officials to peep into everyone's bedroom?"

Eventually. But first we have to mount the assault on Big Gay (no, I am not talking about Rosie O'Donnell). We can tax gay nightclubs, websites, personal ads, sexual paraphernalia, and so forth. Talk about a sin tax!!! We can cripple gay-related industries and get them right where we want them. All gay clubs will have to feature huge, flashing warning signs like "CAUTION: Entering this nightclub may increase your chance of contracting STDs and dying."

Big Gay clearly lures people into trying their "product" without discussing the risks to mind, body, and soul. The average Joe on the street does not understand all of the possible bad outcomes. I can almost hear him now:

"They said '100 percent hotties.' I thought that meant it was fun. I thought gay sex was OK…Now I have all these diseases. Big Gay has wrecked my life."

In the immoral words of Warren G, "Regulators!! Mount up!"

EXTREME SHUDDER.

In another 2002 article, classily titled "College Girls: Unpaid Whores," Sabia laments that feminists have led college girls to stop trying to be like the Holy Virgin Mary and instead to aspire to be more like that hussy Ally McBeal.

No, really.

As women have strayed from the church, they have replaced what is holy with what is temporally pleasing. For Catholics, the model woman is Mary, the virgin Mother of God. She is beloved by the faithful for her unflappable devotion to and trust in God, her nurturing of the Son of Man, and her deep love for all humanity.

Today's college girl looks to Ally McBeal, the trollops of Sex in the City, and the floozies on Friends to set their moral compasses.

The sad truth is that college girls are so desperate to find love that they are willing to degrade themselves to get it. But true love can only be understood in the context of the Word of God. Any other notion of "love" is secular and, by definition, limited and finite.

Not only that, but instead of going to college to find a husband, they have boyfriends. Boyfriends they have S-E-X with. And sometimes, not even that. Sometimes they have sex with people just because they want to have sex with people, and not even in exchange for Valentine's Day cards or money!


Additionally, other sex-based relationships have become commonplace. In recent years, a new and disturbing arrangement known as "friends with benefits" has emerged. In this arrangement, men are not even forced to perform the normal duties of boyfriends, i.e. flowers, Valentine's Day cards, rides to the abortion clinic, etc. Instead, girls consider these guys "just friends" whom they happen to screw every now and again. No strings, no attachments, no dinners. Just sex when they feel like it.

This type of arrangement is the next logical step in the direction that young women have drifted in the last few decades. These women have become unpaid whores. At least prostitutes made a buck off of their trade. These women just give it away.

How cute! He was like the ur-incel, basically.

Anyway, following the discovery of the posts, the House Education and Workforce Committee's GOP communications director Kelley McNabb told Politico that "members were uncomfortable moving forward on the hearing." A more optimistic person might think this was a step forward, that maybe those committee members actually thought it was bad to suggest that being gay means being a disease-ridden monster or that college girls are whores, but it's probably more to avoid embarrassment than anything else. Guess they'll have to start from scratch and find a crappy economist who will tell them what they want to hear about the minimum wage but who doesn't have an embarrassing Geocities blog in their past. Good luck with that!
