List of ‘Forbidden Words’ Gets ‘Bigger’
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL reports that “[t]he list of racially insensitive words just got bigger: Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kirk is drawing some criticism for a remark he made to fellow Republicans about the upcoming election. Kirk talked about ‘key, vulnerable precincts, for example, South and West sides of Chicago, Rockford, Metro East, where the other side might be tempted to jigger the numbers somewhat.'”
Alderman Freddrenna Lyle (pictured; and yes, that’s her real name), a Democratic Committee member, and others said they were offended by Kirk’s use of the verb “jigger” when “talking about regions heavily populated by Black voters”: “The problem I had is that it sounds so much like another word,” the Rev. Albert Tyson stated.
The Journal said it well when adding “Some may say that Lyle and Tyson are too quick on the trigger, but surely it’s appropriate to apply rigor in combating the racism that for too long has left our country disfigured.”
My question: How will this affect A.A. Milne’s classic Pooh books that deal with “Tigger”?

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
