Black Skin Privilege: Justifying Voter Fraud

My article from the Aug. 12, 2015 issue of FrontPageMag: Black Skin Privilege: Justifying Voter Fraud By Matthew Vadum Editor’s note: The following is the fourth article in the FrontPage series “Black Skin Privilege,” based on the Freedom Center pamphlet “Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream” by David Horowitz and John Perazzo. (Read Part I here, Part II here, and Part III here.) Black Americans today receive preferential treatment in the realm of elections and voting rights because the Left needs them to acquire and keep political power. To left-wingers it’s 1815, not 2015. Blacks today are unquestionably full citizens unhindered by officially-sanctioned … Continue reading Black Skin Privilege: Justifying Voter Fraud

Michael Brown Funeral: Cop-Lynching Pep Rally

My article from the Aug. 26, 2014 issue of FrontPage magazine: Michael Brown Funeral: Cop-Lynching Pep Rally By Matthew Vadum An Al Sharpton-led memorial service yesterday for Michael Brown, the black 18-year-old thug who gave a white Ferguson, Mo. police officer a severe head injury while trying to seize his handgun, became the grotesque political rally some observers feared it would be. The distinctly anti-police tone of the service was proof that the lie that Brown tried to surrender to white police officer Darren Wilson, rather than trying to beat the life out of him, won’t die. The racial-grievance industry, egged … Continue reading Michael Brown Funeral: Cop-Lynching Pep Rally

Lionizing the Enemy

My article from the June 17, 2014 issue of FrontPage magazine Lionizing the Enemy By Matthew Vadum A project is underway to rehabilitate the self-exiled Sixties radical, anti-Semite and “black power” advocate Stokely Carmichael. The opening salvo in this revisionist project of the Afro-centrist Marxist Left in academia is Stokely: A Life, by Peniel E. Joseph, which was recently published by BasicCivitas Books. It is more infomercial than biography, calculated to transform its negligible subject into a towering figure of historic importance, and to whitewash the damage he did. Joseph’s central argument is that Carmichael was a “rock star” activist who … Continue reading Lionizing the Enemy

Celebrating Voter Fraud

My article in today’s FrontPage magazine: Celebrating Voter Fraud By Matthew Vadum Cincinnati-area Democrats made headlines last week when they embraced one of their own, serial vote fraud offender Melowese Richardson, after getting her released early from prison. At a “voting rights” rally, National Action Network (NAN) president Al Sharpton and Bobby Hilton, president of NAN’s Cincinnati chapter, celebrated criminal overachiever Richardson who was sentenced to five years behind bars last July for multiple counts of fraudulently casting ballots.  Richardson had bragged that she voted twice in the 2012 presidential election. She also voted illegally in three elections by using the names … Continue reading Celebrating Voter Fraud

The World According to Andrea Mitchell

My article from the Oct. 4, 2013 issue of American Thinker: The World According to Andrea Mitchell By Matthew Vadum In an incident ignored by the media, race-baiter extraordinaire Andrea Mitchell and other big-name journalists candidly exposed their bigotry and racial prejudices at a friendly forum in the nation’s capital last year. In an unusually candid conversation, mainstream media stars Mitchell, David Gregory, and Dana Milbank let loose in an orgy of Caucasian self-flagellation during a panel discussion titled, “Media: Race & Politics – The Impact of Race in Politics 2012,” at the National Action Network’s conference in Washington, D.C.   … Continue reading The World According to Andrea Mitchell

NBC Liberals Fan Sharpton’s Flames of Racial Resentment at Private Event

Murder and Double Standards

My article from the July 31, 2013 issue of FrontPage Magazine: Murder and Double Standards By Matthew Vadum Few Americans outside of Knoxville, Tenn., know about the case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, two young people who were kidnapped, savagely assaulted, raped, and murdered by people of a different race. If Christian and Newsom had been black, and they had been raped, tortured, and murdered by a group of white people, the victims’ names would be painfully seared into the national psyche by the media’s saturation coverage of the atrocities and their aftermath. The reason the case attracted so … Continue reading Murder and Double Standards

BREAKING: ACORN Housing is dead!

I have it on good authority that Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) is dead. Until the devastating “pimp and pro” videos surfaced in 2009 that showed ACORN employees offering helpful advice on setting up a brothel for pedophiles, AHCOA’s name was ACORN Housing Corp. AHCOA’s website (ahcoa.org) is down. AHCOA’s Twitter feed hasn’t been updated since August of last year. View it here. Despite apparently kicking the bucket some time ago without anyone in the media (myself included) noticing, ACORN Housing has been in the news recently. Earlier this month it was reported that the Obama administration funneled $446 million in taxpayer … Continue reading BREAKING: ACORN Housing is dead!

Community Organizers Mobilize to Save ObamaCare

My article in today’s Front Page Magazine: Community Organizers Mobilize to Save ObamaCare By Matthew Vadum The Obama administration has enlisted one of America’s leading economic terrorist groups to help defend and promote the president’s widely unpopular socialist healthcare scheme. This development is not all that surprising because when liberal policies threaten to destroy the country Democrats typically think all they need to do is shout louder to make people understand how wonderful the hated policies really are. This ongoing collaboration with radical left-wing community organizers is also part of the Obama reelection campaign’s divide-and-conquer strategy: Inflame the base and … Continue reading Community Organizers Mobilize to Save ObamaCare

Al Sharpton’s group targets its next victims

The pressure group run by racial arsonist, con man, tax cheat, and absconding debtor Al Sharpton is lining up some fresh victims. The Harlem-based National Action Network (NAN), a tax-exempt 501c4 advocacy group, runs a project called the Madison Avenue Initiative. A NAN press release explains its purpose: “Our goal is to create more business alliances between the corporate and government public service sectors and the many viable black and latino-owned agencies and media.  We’re seeing more opportunities for a greater share of the marketing mix,” said Rev. Al Sharpton, founder of the National Action Network. “Another area of concern … Continue reading Al Sharpton’s group targets its next victims
