Um — Heil Buckwheat?
We’re decidedly not Michele Nix cheerleaders around these parts. But we do think she is getting a raw deal in the latest hit piece by the NC Democrat Party and their communications team at The N&O. Here’s Toilet Boy Campbell’s latest dictation:
The vice-chairwoman of the N.C. Republican Party is under fire for posting an image that appears to show a black power fist to represent Democratic Party “mobs.”
Michele Nix posted on Instagram with the image, which features the slogan “jobs not mobs” and represents the Republican Party with a white “OK” hand gesture that has recently been appropriated by some white supremacists, while the Democratic Party is represented by a dark-colored fist similar to a design used by the Black Panther Party.
On Twitter, Nix disputed a reporter’s characterization of the image as a black power symbol, arguing that instead “the raised fist was a #COMMUNIST symbol now adopted by the #Democrats.”
A number of Twitter users called the image “racist,” pointing to the contrast of the white hand and the dark-colored hand.[…]
Seriously? Ammo must be running low over on the left flank. That’s all they have?
Eddie Murphy (pictured above) made comedy history on Saturday Night Live as the Lil’ Rascals character Buckwheat, whose trademark was giving us the Ok sign and telling us everything was going to be ‘O-tay.’
*Was Eddie really showing solidarity with the skinhead / Klan crowd?*
Personally, I think we need to get back to Robert Howard’s old tweets. (They were much more entertaining.)

The thing I like about this place is no matter the issue this site always tries to side on the side of TRUTH
Thanks for Shining Light on the Darkness
Toilet Boy is a dumb ass. that “OK” hand signal happens to be an official emblem of the Progressive Liberal Party of the Bahamas and has been for decades. The PLP is a center-left party and mostly black, although it has some white members. Would a mostly black center-left party be using a “white supremist” symbol? Nonsense!
This is just more dishonest gibberish from a flailing and failing newspaper known for such.
