Max Blumenthal has found another juicy tidbit about Miss Alaskan Independence Party. Seems that while they scrubbed their racist language, they didn’t scrub their racism–and neither, as their puppet governor, did Miss Uncongenial:
Which makes her boogying with that Kenyan witch-doctor/witch-hunter seem all the more hypocritical, does it not? Frankly, this doesn’t surprise me one bit. After all, she’s the candidate of the racist right. She was installed to steal the thunder of that uppity niggruh, Obama. But this move, like all the others, will backfire, and the thunder will just roll right on over her…watch, wait and see.
Gwen Alexander, the president of the African-American Historical Society of Alaska, told me that Palin stated defiantly that she had no intention to hire any minority staffers. And according to Bishop Dave Thomas, senior pastor of Anchorage-based African-American church Jesus Holy Temple, the Palin administration excluded black business owners from the Alaskan oil and gas pipeline board. “We wasn’t even able or allowed to go into the meetings” to seek contracts for the pipeline, Thomas told me.Palin further alienated Alaska’s black community by becoming the first Alaskan governor in recent memory to not recognize the Juneteenth celebration of the emancipation proclamation. “She doesn’t hire any black people, she doesn’t have any on her staff, so it’s not a surprise that she doesn’t support our Juneteenth celebration,” Alexander said.
