‘Not everyone gets a trophy’: Bristol Palin wants black actors to be ‘colorblind’ about all-white Oscars

Published

on

Abstinence advocate and culture war blogger Bristol Palin this week lashed out at black actors who have complained that the slate of nominees for this year’s Oscars were all white.

In a blog post on Tuesday, Palin said she agreed with Fox News contributor Stacey Dash opinion that both Black History Month and the BET network should not exist as special privileges for the black community.

“Either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards,” Dash told Fox News host Steve Doocy last week.

Palin praised two other black entertainers — Waka Flocka and Ice Cube — for sharing Dash’s views.

“I have to admit, I don’t know who ‘Waka Flocka’ is, or what he sings, but I agree with him on this!” Palin wrote. “Though [Ice Cube] didn’t mention Stacey by name, isn’t it interesting how he echoed her sentiments exactly?”

“We shouldn’t segregate ourselves or limit Black History Month to one month a year. I wish things were really colorblind,” she insisted. “I don’t know how other people think about it, but I hope my son sees early on – that not everyone gets a trophy.”

"[Jackson's] trying to make this bulletproof from a pardon," Napolitano said. "Because she went along exactly with what [Barr] requested."

Adam Schiff sends signal that a Roger Stone pardon would be another impeachable offense

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump -- and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

Watch the video below.
