Sharon Osbourne, one of the judges on America’s Got Talent, says she won’t return to the show once the season wraps up, claiming NBC fired her son, Jack Osbourne, from its upcoming competition entry Stars Earn Stripes after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She told the New York Post, “I just can’t be fake. It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled.”

Sharon Osbourne claims producers behind Stars Earn Stripes, a series that sees celebrities compete in intense military challenges to earn prizes for charities, contacted her two days before her son was supposed to start work on the series claiming the show could not move forward with her son on board.

Producers claim that while they were in talks with Jack Osbourne to join the series but his contract was never signed, though both mother and son noted they were operating under good faith that he’d be among the contestants on the show, which is set to premiere Aug. 13.

David and Frances Champion Jailed for Beating Their Daughter Because of Black Boyfriend Aflonce Ncube

David and Frances Champion were arrested for assaulting their then-17 year old daughter Jane Champion because she ‘brought shame’ on their family by dating a black guy, Aflonce Ncube. They also assaulted Ncube after repeatedly punching their daughter in the face, grabbing her around the throat and pulling her hair, leaving her with lumps and bruises, the Daily Mail reports.

Her boyfriend, Mr Ncube was kicked in the legs while being subjected to a torrent of abuse over his skin color. Mr Champion was jailed today for 12 months and his wife for nine months after two ‘vile’ racial attacks on the pair.

The first attack happened after Miss Champion’s parents were outraged to find her in a ‘state of undress’ with Mr Ncube when they returned to their home in St Thomas, Swansea. Mr Champion, 50, shouted racist abuse at Mr Ncube before grabbing and kicking him in the back of the leg and pushing him out the front door.

He then grabbed Jane by her hair and started hitting her for ‘bringing shame’ to the family. Judge Peter Heywood said: ‘We live in a liberal and enlightened society and these sorts of racist behavior cannot be tolerated. ‘The way you reacted was totally inappropriate.‘I would be failing in my public duty if I was to do anything other than to impose a custodial sentence.’ Source

Some people shouldn’t be parents. The world has changed and left people like David and Frances Champion behind. Not every black male is a thug as not every white person is a racist.

One Million Moms Christian Group Slams Cedric The Entertainer’s Sitcom “The Soul Man” Saying It Blasphemes Christ

One Million Moms slams Cedric the Entertainer's "The Soul Man"

One Million Moms Christian Group Slams Cedric The Entertainer’s Sitcom “The Soul Man” Saying It Blasphemes Christ (TV Land)

Cedric the Entertainer’s TV Land sitcom, “Soul Man” is getting slammed by One Million Moms, a group of conservative Christian women, who say it’s not family-friendly. The group said the show is a ‘mockery of Jesus Christ’ and gives pastors a bad name. Um, the show isn’t funny, period. If Neicy Nash is the best they could do for an actress, then that speaks volumes.

TV Land may not be inclined to yield to One Million Moms because the show is the network’s second-highest rated series premiere behind Valerie Bertinelli and Betty White’s “Hot in Cleveland.” Personally, I think “Happily Divorced,” starring Fran Drescher and Tichina Arnold is a lot funnier.

The group also takes offense to Neicy Nash’s character, Lolli, saying she is out of line with her busty-style and form-fitting dresses. You will recall Neicy tells Boyce (Cedric), “lack of booty makes you moody.”

The group started a petition against the show and is seeking donations:

TV Land’s newest sitcom “The Soul Man” blasphemes the name of Jesus Christ and mocks pastors as well. The mockery is similar to “Good Christian Belles” also known as “GCB” with a family sitcom feel. The word family is used loosely since the program focuses on one family but is far from family-friendly programming. The show is described as: R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric The Entertainer) was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he got “the calling” and decided to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become a preacher in his father’s church. However, his family members – including wife Lolli (Niecy Nash) and daughter Lyric (Jazz Raycole) – are not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for their new humble one. “The Soul Man” premieres Wednesday, June 20 at 10/9c.

I find the show not very funny, but given the history of some of the pastors in pulpits across the United States, such as Dr. Jack Schaap, who was fired from his position at First Baptist Church of Hammond, for allegedly kissing a female teenager, “Soul Man” should be the least of One Million Moms worries. Um, if you don’t like the show, do what I do, don’t watch it.

OH Congressional Candidate Marisha Agana Compares Obama to Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse Tung

OH Congressional Candidate Marisha Agana Compares Obama to Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse Tung

Ohio congressional candidate Marisha Agana, who is of Filipino descent like conservative windbag Michelle Malkin, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler in a tweet, saying “History has a way of repeating itself: Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung and now Obama!!!”

Marisha Agana later tweeted:

She also accused President Obama of encouraging voter fraud:

Agana was born in the Philippines in 1960, was a “subject of the dictatorial Marcos regime,” and “suffered through the consequences of a government intent on ignoring its Constitutional limitations,” according to her campaign website.

Marisha Agana is a disgrace to the people in her constituency, many of whom I am sure are black. You have a right to disagree with President Obama on his policies, but denigrating him to the point of comparison with Adolf Hitler, a man who caused so much pain and anguish to the Jewish community is not just irresponsible. It’s reprehensible and deserves an apology.

FBI Looking for Second ‘Person of Interest’ in Sikh Temple Shooting After Wade Michael Page Kills Six

Santelle said Monday. He said officials believe he purchased the 9 mm handgun legally in Wisconsin.”

“At a news conference at 10 a.m., authorities said there were attempting to identify another person, a white male, who they described as “a person of interest.”

WTF:  How do you accidentally eat marijuana? Um, that’s the line American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo is using after he was expelled from the Olympic Games on Monday because he tested positive for marijuana. He said he accidentally ate the weed before going to London. CBS News reports Nick Delpopolo is the first of the 10,500 games athletes to fail an in-competition doping test. I guess Snoop Dogg, AKA Snoop Lion, should have used that same line when he was barred from entering Norway.

Mitt Romney Persona Non Grata in Italy for Bain Capital’s Deal Skirting Taxes Under His Watch

Bain Capital is the gift that just keeps on giving….Mitt Romney is persona non grata in Italy over claims Bain Capital skirted paying taxes.

Bloomberg:  That’s because Bain Capital, under Romney as chief executive officer, made about $1 billion in a leveraged buyout 12 years ago that remains controversial in Italy to this day. Bain was part of a group that bought a telephone-directory company from the Italian government and then sold it about two years later, at the peak of the technology bubble, for about 25 times what it paid.

Bain funneled profits through subsidiaries in Luxembourg, a common corporate strategy for avoiding income taxes in other European countries, according to documents reviewed by Bloomberg News. The buyer, Italy’s biggest telephone company, now has a total market value less than what it paid Bain and other investors for the directory business.

In Italy, the deals have spurred at least three books, separate legal and regulatory probes and newspaper columns alleging investors made a fortune at the expense of Italian taxpayers. Boston-based Bain wasn’t a subject of the inquiries, which didn’t result in any charges.

Rick Santorum was right when he said Mitt Romney is the worst presidential candidate to go up against Barack Obama in the general elections. Until a month ago, I hadn’t made a decision on who I was going to support for president, but I have to tell you, Mitt Romney isn’t the candidate for me. The wealthy donors are trying to buy the election by dumping millions in his coffers, but do you really know what Mitt Romney stands for? I suspect many will say no, but the economy is horrible and he will fix it. Um, sorry, his business record is shrouded in so much secrecy that I don’t know if he’s as qualified as he claims to be. One has to wonder what else happened at Bain Capital under Mitt Romney’s watch? Which other country did they stiff for taxes? This may also lend credence to Sen. Harry Reid’s claims about his taxes.

Alleged Sikh Temple Shooter Wade Michael Page was Member of Racist White-Power Band

Sikh temple shooter Wade Michael Page  was a neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band, the Southern Poverty Law Center reports.

In 2010, Page, then the leader of the band End Apathy, gave an interviewto the white supremacist website Label 56. He said that when he started the band in 2005, its name reflected his wish to “figure out how to end people’s apathetic ways” and start “moving forward.” “I was willing to point out some of my faults on how I was holding myself back,” Page said. Later, he added, “The inspiration was based on frustration that we have the potential to accomplish so much more as individuals and a society in whole.” He did not discuss violence in the interview.

Page told the website that he had been a part of the white power music scene since 2000, when he left his native Colorado on a motorcycle. He attended white power concerts in Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Colorado.  At various times, he said, he also played in the hate rock bands Youngland (2001-2003), Celtic Warrior, Radikahl, Max Resist, Intimidation One, Aggressive Force and Blue Eyed Devils. End Apathy, he said, included “Brent” on bass and “Ozzie” on drums; the men were former members of Definite Hate and another band, 13 Knots. Source:  Southern Poverty Law Center

I am just so sorry that this POS was killed by the police. He should have been arrested so that he can be brought to justice like Aurora shooter James Holmes. Some people believe we are in  post-racial America. Um, I beg to differ. Not when we have racist lunatics like Wade Michael Page running around.
