When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed President Barack Obama for a second term Thursday, and the American Taliban is in full mode 'bat shit crazy" angry.

Front man to 'binders full O' women" aka assclown Romney surrogate John Sununu is calling General Powell everything but the "N: word, and his race baiting is in high gear.

Sununu on Piers Morgan:
Sununu: Well, I'm not sure how important that is. I do like the fact that Colin Powell's boss, George Herbert Walker Bush, has endorsed Mitt Romney all along. And frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama.
Morgan: What reason would that be?
Sununu: Well, I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him.

Now enters retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, once Chief of Staff to General Colin Powell, [staunch republican] blasting Sununu and his radical party by saying:
My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable.

Col. Wilkerson GOP slam starts at 2:49:

Let's be clear readers, the GOP is not interested in reducing the race spectrum. This history of race baiting since POTUS took office is long and disgusting.

This isn't the first time Powell has been accused of an endorsement based on race. In 2008, Rush Limbaugh, among others, insinuated that Powell's endorsement of Obama was motivated by skin color.

Sununu is certainly no stranger to incendiary rhetoric this election cycle, once calling the President "lazy". This is the mindset of the white pasty mans mind when its hooked on teabagger.

Momma always said. "show me your friends and I'll tell you whom you are". Mitt Romney's friends are, John Sununu, Richard Mourdock, Donald Trump, and anyone working for Faux News. Confessions of a GOP racist is a startling article, read it, and you'll see that racism is as strong as it was in the 1860's.

Yes Col. Wilkerson is a GOPer, but at least he is an honest GOPer, which is rare in our word circa 2012.
