TODAY ON TWiB! Obama’s Taxes Are Low! and…?

That Obama is totally hypocritical, see for yourself in this quote from January 2012:

“I’ve been hearing a lot of these Republicans talking about, oh, that’s class warfare, and he just wants to redistribute, and doesn’t believe in work, and he’s trying to create an entitlement society, and this and that and the other.  Let me be absolutely clear:  I should pay more taxes, and folks in my income bracket should pay more taxes, and certainly folks who are making billions of dollars should pay more taxes, not because I want to take their money and just give it to somebody else.  It’s because we’ve got basic investments and basic functions that have to be carried out in this 21st century if we’re going to be able to compete.”

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discussed America’s pervasive rape culture and the toll it takes on male victims, we solved the mystery of Obama’s missing teleprompter,and we discussed hypocrisy in Scarborough country.

Rand Paul: Civil Rights Activist

Rand Paul has never wavered on Civil Rights:Except that one time:

That’s not, like, really wavering, right? That’s just sort of wavering.
Maybe we should let the free market decide.

The latest on #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness obviously Rand Paul explaining how voting works to a group of students at an historically black college isn’t accidentally racist or anything, historian superhero Dr. Blair Kelley calls in on the black phone, and since when is saying ‘nigger rigging’ ever okay?

Tucker Carlson, Glenn Beck, and a Rejected White Girl Walk into a Bar

Today on #TWiBRadio, we watch the editor of Conservative Black Chick, Crystal Wright and Tucker Carlson completely miss the ever-loving point.

And then Glenn Beck and company do not hear the same things we hear:

So Melissa Harris-Perry wants to steal your children if they don’t drown at the hands of incompetent Negroes who just stole your spot at Yale.

I mean, that’s reasonable.

Instilling Fear in Black and Latino Youth

During testimony Monday in the case against NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy, State Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) recounted comments made by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:

Kelly said that officers focused on that group of people “because he wanted to instill fear in them that every time they left home they could be targeted by police.”

That’s right …

Instill.
Fear.

also on today’s #TWiBRadio, we explored what we could possibly learn from Fox and Friends (spoiler: it’s nothing), conservatives tweeting the paper bag test, perhaps there’s a relationship between obvious studies and commonly held beliefs of extremely stupid people.
