KKK Holds Rally for Totally Not Racist Confederate Flag

From Politico:

The Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan’s Pelham, North Carolina, chapter have reserved the Statehouse Grounds in South Carolina for a rally next month.

James Spears, the Great Titan of the chapter, said the group would be rallying to protest “the Confederate flag being took down for all the wrong reasons.”

“It’s part of white people’s culture,” he added.

Brian Gaines, who runs the South Carolina Budget and Control Board, which oversees reservations, confirmed the scheduling in an email to POLITICO Monday. He added that the group submitted the request on June 23 and, because his office allows any group, regardless of ideology, to reserve the grounds on a first-come, first-serve basis, the KKK will be able to hold its rally.

I usually HATE these kind of lists but these are pretty dead on. I always forget #20 though. I know service is included but you also can leave a few Euros if service is exceptional. I think I left a few Euros even if service was basic. It’s difficult not to tip when you’re coming from the US at a restaurant.

NBC Fires Donald Trump

From CNN.com:

NBCUniversal, succumbing to pressure from an array of Hispanic groups, is severing its business ties to presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The Miss USA pageant, scheduled for July 12, will no longer air on the network. Miss USA and Miss Universe were, until now, jointly owned by NBC and Trump.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the company said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

Trump had no immediate comment.

Monday’s announcement follows a similar move by Univision, the Spanish-language broadcaster, last week. Univision decided it would not air Miss USA in the wake of his racially-tinged comments about Mexican immigrants.

Ted Cruz Sings “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” To No Reaction In Iowa

There has to be video of this somewhere. Right?

In an apparent attempt to upstage President Barack Obama’s rousing rendition of “Amazing Grace” during his eulogy of the victims of the Charleston shooting, Senator Ted Cruz reportedly “randomly broke into song” during a campaign event in Ames, Iowa. Strangely, the Republican presidential hopeful chose to sing the song “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, a song originally penned for the 1939 film ‘The Wizard of Oz’. According to a variety of reports from those in attendance at the event, Cruz was speaking on the Supreme Court of the United States’s decision in favor of gay marriage prior to the alleged incident.

“It was really an odd moment,” said attendee Joanne Baker. “Senator Cruz’s voice cracked and he paused. Tears began to well up in his eyes and then he broke into the first part of that song from ‘Wizard of Oz’. We were all really patient and endured it, but unfortunately, the Senator was far too emotional to sound that good.”

Sources claim that after he finished singing, there was an awkward moment of “at least 30 seconds of silence” where Cruz quietly wept and no one in the audience “dared make a sound”. Allegedly, Cruz was so overtaken by emotion he could not continue his campaign speech and members of his campaign staff whisked him away to a waiting vehicle.

“It’s really hard to tell what Ted Cruz was intending with this stunt,” said pundit Chris Stern. “On one hand, this could have been an honest reaction to the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage and could be just Ted Cruz’s way of dealing with things. On the other hand, this could have been a publicity stunt to upstage Obama that backfired tremendously when it was revealed that Ted Cruz can’t sing as well as Barack Obama. I’m sure the Cruz campaign will attempt to bury this incident as several sources in Iowa claimed staffers were asking attendees to politely delete any footage of Sen. Cruz singing from their smartphones.”
