Fox News Has Typical Ironic B*tchfest Over Atheist Ad


Published on Jul 13, 2014

“The New York Times ran a full page ad last week from the Freedom From Religion Foundation railing against the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision. But the ad happened to mention the Supreme Court is majority-Catholic, leading Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros to ask if the Times is “profiting off of bigotry.”


There are exactly two mentions of Catholicism in the ad: once where it says “All-Male, All-Roman Catholic Majority On Supreme Court Puts Religious Wrongs Over Women’s Rights,” and again, a little farther down, where it reads “The Supreme Court’s ultra-conservative, Roman Catholic majority..

George Zimmerman Kills Trayvon Martin And Is Free. Ms. Marissa Alexander Kills A Ceiling And She’s Behind Bars.


By Jueseppi B.




Tell Florida Governor Rick Scott:


“Angela Corey’s decision to seek a 60-year sentence for Marissa Alexander is a blatant abuse of power. Remove her as state attorney.”


Please Sign The Petition.


Marissa Alexander was sentenced to 20 years of prison time for firing a warning shot to stop her abuser from hurting her. She was granted a re-trial because of national outrage over the case. But now, Florida state attorney Angela Corey is pushing for an even harsher sentence–60 years.


It’s outrageous.


And even more so when you consider that the average prison sentence of men who kill their female partners is 2 to 6 years. You read that right. 2 to 6 years. But Florida state attorney Corey is pushing 60 years for a woman who fired a warning shot that didn’t even hurt anyone?!


It’s a blatant abuse of power and a clear effort by Corey to raise her profile as a tough state attorney right before an election year. But playing politics with the life of Marissa Alexander is not okay. AndGovernor Rick Scott, who is already facing a ton of criticism in Florida, has taken no action to curb this rogue state attorney. After two years filled with horrible stories of racial violence in Florida–the killings of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis–and falling approval rates, Gov. Scott can’t afford another crisis. We need to show him that the whole country is still paying attention and we won’t stand for this kind of blatant injustice.


Will you sign the petition calling on Governor Scott to remove Angela Corey as state attorney? Please Sign The Petition.


The statistics are incredibly shocking–over 79% of women in federal and state prisons are survivors of physical and sexual abuse. And 64% are in prison for non-violent crimes.


And women of color fare the worst–composing 67% of the female prison population and often facing harsher sentences.7 This is about more than Marissa Alexander, although she is a glaring example of the inequality of our justice system and its treatment of domestic abuse survivors.


Florida’s broken justice system has reached a boiling point. It’s time to dismantle Stand Your Ground, which statistics show is successful as a defense far more often when white men kill black men than the other way around. But at the same time, we must stand up for all women who are targeted with extreme sentences. Just as Stand Your Ground disproportionately leads to the killings of black men, the justice system disproportionately targets women of color with longer sentences, even when the women are survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, and often exposes them to further abuse while incarcerated.


But now we have a national moment to shine light on the issue of domestic abuse and incarceration, which rarely gets media attention. And it starts by holding Governor Scott accountable for Florida state attorney Angela Corey’s abuse of power. State attorney Corey is clearly looking for a media opportunity to raise her profile by pushing for such a harsh sentence for Marissa Alexander. But if we all speak up now, we can make sure that attention is negative–and Corey is exposed not for being tough on crime, but for disproportionately targeting survivors of domestic abuse.


Will you stand up for Marissa Alexander and tell Governor Rick Scott to remove Angela Corey from her position as FL state attorney? Please Sign The Petition.


Thanks for taking action.

Angry Crowd Runs George Zimmerman Off Miami Beach & Out Of Miami.


By Jueseppi B.



Angry crowd runs George Zimmerman out of Miami.


By  &


Trayvon’s killer had been filming interviews before meeting an aggressive response on the beach in Miami.


George Zimmerman reportedly received a small taste of vigilante justice on a recent beach trip in Miami. According to reports on (ever reliable news site) TMZ, Trayvon Martin’s killer was run off a beach when he was recognized by an angry crowd.


Zimmerman, who had been in Miami to film a series of interviews and garner yet more undeserved platforms in the public eye, swiftly left the city following the incident. My hope is that the Miami mob set a precedent for how to treat Zimmerman henceforth.


Via TMZ:


Zimmerman taped an interview last Tuesday with Univision and Fusion, and then took his girlfriend, her kid and his brother to the beach. While they were catching some rays, people noticed him, started harassing him, and then someone shouted out George had a $10,000 bounty on his head.


We’re told it freaked him out and they all retreated to the hotel, but the crowd followed them.


Security swept their room to make sure no one tampered with their stuff and then stood guard throughout the day and night. We’re told Zimmerman did his CNN interview early the next morning and then beat it … literally fleeing Miami.

MILLIONHOODIES: Movement For Justice.


By Jueseppi B.




About Us

The Million Hoodies Movement for Justice is a national non-profit with over 50,000 members working to protect and empower young people of color from racial profiling and senseless gun violence through creativity and innovation.


Led by Founder and Executive Director Daniel Maree, Million Hoodies successfully generated global support for the arrest of George Zimmerman by collecting over 2 million petition signatures on, which became the fastest growing petition in the history of the Internet (ABC News). In 2012, Million Hoodies created a new tool to help track and document incidents of police misconduct and institutional discrimination. Million Hoodies has since collected over 2,000 incidents of misconduct in New York City alone.


Million Hoodies has generated millions of dollars in earned media for victims and families of senseless gun violence and received several awards, including: 2 Cannes Lions, 2 Gold Andy Awards, 2 Bronze Art Director’s Club Awards, a 2013 D&AD Silver Pencil nomination, a 2013 Webby Award Nomination for Public Service and Activism (which places Million Hoodies as one of the 5 best campaigns in the world in its category), and the 2013 Do Something Award Grand Prize, which honors world changers aged 25 and younger.


Our work recognizes that the conditions that caused the death of Trayvon Martin and many others like him are deeply embedded in institutional injustice and structural violence. While accountability in individual cases is important, we realize that we must attack the core inequalities in our society if we are to put a stop to the senseless deaths and systemic violence inflicted on people of color every day. Our core programs and activities include:


  • Institutional Discrimination
  • Gun Reform
  • Direct Action & Advocacy for Victims & Families
  • Electoral & Legal Rights
  • Education & Empowerment

#STOPTheFight. A Travesty Of American Dumbfuckery.


By Jueseppi B.



I will start this post off by paying my respects to Ms. Sabrina Fulton by putting her comments/response to this travesty of American dumbfuckery, ahead of the stories on this travesty of American dumbfuckery that follows.


Travyon Martin’s mother comments on George Zimmerman’s upcoming boxing match


Published on Feb 6, 2014

Joe Madison, “The Black Eagle” — Eagle’s Nest Studios.Trayvon Martin’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin joined Joe Madison to discuss the upcoming peace walk in Miami and theTravyon Martin foundation. Ms Fulton Martin commented on George Zimmerman’s upcoming boxing match with rap star DMX.



Now for the Travesty Of American Dumbfuckery…..

DMX will fight George Zimmerman in boxing match, promoter says



PHILADELPHIA – Damon Feldman has made a name for himself over the years promoting many celebrity boxing matches, from Danny Bonaduce to Jose Canseco to Dustin Diamond. His newest fight is likely to be his most explosive yet.


Feldman says he’s chosen rap star DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons to fight George Zimmerman, the man known for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, reports CBS Philadelphia. Simmons is 43 years old, and Zimmerman is 30 years old.


“I’ve gotten over 15,000 emails, I had to end [the submissions to fight Zimmerman] there,” Feldman told a Philadelphia radio show.  “Very angry, I had everything from celebrities to [rapper] The Game…  I got into it with him on TMZ the other day. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is the referee with this, we’re very excited.”




“It’s DMX. Hip hop star, legend. He called him out on TMZ this week. It’s controversy versus controversy. I know this country wants to see this guy get [George Zimmerman’s] [expletive] kicked.”


Feldman says that Zimmerman is already getting ready for the fight.




“He said he’s been training, yes. He’s training every day,” Feldman said. “I have to see if DMX is training, if he’s not training, we’ll have to go in a different direction.”


Feldman says that there will not be tickets sold to the fight, and it will be on internet pay-per-view only. “Nobody knows where it’s going to be at,” Feldman said. The fight is scheduled for March 14th, 2014.


Thank you  CBS





From TMZ;


It’s official … X gonna give it to George Zimmerman — TMZ has learned, rapper DMX has just been named Zimmerman’s opponent in his upcoming celebrity boxing match.


Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants … all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him.


But no one wanted to beat Zimmerman’s ass more than DMX.


Thank you TMZ.



Now for some sanity in this Travesty Of American Dumbfuckery…..


Sign This Petition At The White House Petitions Page.


White House Petition to Stop George Zimmerman DMX Boxing Match


Stop George Zimmerman and Promoter Damon Feldman from using murder & racial hate in America for Profit




Celebrity Boxing Promoter Damon Feldman & George Zimmerman are attempting to promote and profit off of racial tensions in America.


Damon Feldman has been known for fixing fights and taking short cuts in the past in bypassing state requirements for fighters to obtain a license to box.


Mr Feldmans past should be highly considered in this regard if Feldman is not going through the proper channels to ensure the safety of the participants it puts lives at risk.


in addition the entire idea of this event is to use racial tensions to lure people in to purchase the event. this will only hurt America as it will continue to stir up racial tensions that have been on going in this nation for quite some time.


No Promoter or Celebrity Boxer should ever be allowed to use racial tension to profit.



Created: Feb 02, 2014



Feldman says that he is aware of the petition but has not read it. “There are a lot of haters out there,” he says. “But I don’t see color. I’m just in this to make money. There’s an opportunity for me to catch a break here.”


This last statement says all one needs to know about Mr. Feldman’s character and motives. I need not comment on his lack of respect for the memory of Trayvon Benjamin Martin or Trayvon’s Family & Friends.



Meet Ms. Janet Dickerson, the Los Angles lady who started this petition….




I thought it was a complete demonstration of disrespect to Trayvon’s parents, to Trayvon himself and to the many people who feel impacted by this injustice,” Dickerson told NewsOne. “It became clear that people were really outraged by this, so I thought that it would certainly be worthwhile to put up this petition. And I see on his Twitter feed that he is trying to create a racialized event.”






I appeal to your sense of common decency, please lets sign this petition.
