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.

Tara Lynn Belcher told police she had just been fired from her job after arguing with and calling customers racial slurs, but a video shot the same day shows she didn’t learn from the experience. Belcher was caught on camera going off on a racist rant in a second, violent incident that led to her arrest.

According to police, Belcher, 28, of Myrtle Beach, was walking to catch a cab after being sacked when an African American man started walking alongside her, asking her questions and filming her with the intention of posting the video online, reported. The video is now on YouTube and has nearly 430,000 views.

The video, posted May 25, starts with the man holding the camera on Belcher and saying, “But you called that man a n**ger for no reason,” to which Belcher responds, “Fuck you. Because he’s a n**ger.”

She then launches into a racial slur-laden rant.

“I call people n**gers if they act like n***ers,” she says into the camera, then to someone on her cell phone she says, “Yeah this filthy n***er is filming me so you need to hurry up.”


She told police the man spit on her, punched her and stole her cell phone.

But the video reveals it’s Belcher who spit in the man’s face. He recoils and slaps her in response. The two then scuffle with each other. Police did not find her cell phone on him.

According to a police report obtained by MyHorryNews, Belcher grabbed the man’s dreadlocks and pulled “a bunch of hair” out of his head.

Belcher was arrested and charged with assault and battery and marijuana possession. She is currently free on $1,401 bond.

The man’s video was downloaded for use as evidence by police and then posted to social media.

According to Supreme Justice John Roberts, racism is dead. Ah, maybe not so much Einstein!
