EXCERPT:

A new report issued by the American Textbook Council says books approved for use in local school districts for teaching middle and high school students about Islam caved in to political correctness and dumbed down the topic at a critical moment in its history.

Textbook editors try to avoid any subject that could turn into a political grenade,” wrote Gilbert Sewall, director of the council, who railed against five popular history texts for “adjust[ing] the definition of jihad or sharia or remov[ing] these words from lessons to avoid inconvenient truths.

Obama’s discourtesy to Lieberman

In typical “community organizer” fashion, the junior Senator from Illinois had a little temper tantrum Wednesday and got physical with the opposition on the US Senate floor. As he went to shake hands with Joseph Lieberman he didn’t release his grip; but rather directed Joe over to the Democrat side of the aisle and “shoved” him back up against the wall. According to sources in the Senate Well he then proceeded to give old Joe a piece of his mind for about 5 minutes.. It appears the punk Senator didn’t like Lieberman calling him out for his 2-faced stance on the problem of Iran. Looks like mister Obama is not an empty suit after all… but a thug in a three piece suit.

Spike Lee gets in Clint Eastwood’s line of fire

• Director told to ‘shut his face’ after race comments
• Row over black casting in second world war films

Clint Eastwood has advised rival film director Spike Lee to “shut his face” after the African-American complained about the racial make-up of Eastwood’s films.

In an interview with the Guardian published today, Eastwood rejected Lee’s complaint that he had failed to include a single African-American soldier in his films Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, both about the 1945 battle for the Japanese island.

In typically outspoken language, Eastwood justified his choice of actors, saying that those black troops who did take part in the battle as part of a munitions company didn’t raise the flag. The battle is known by the image of US marines raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi.

SNIP:

Defending the racial make-up in his films as historically accurate, Eastwood referred to another of his films, Changeling, which was set in Los Angeles before the city had a large group of African-Americans. “What are you going to do, you going to tell a <censored>in’ story about that?” he said. “Make it look like a commercial for an equal opportunity player? I’m not in that game. I’m playing it the way I read it historically, and that’s the way it is. When I do a movie and it’s 90% black, like Bird, then I use 90% black people.

“He was complaining when I did Bird (the 1988 biopic of Charlie Parker). Why would a white guy be doing that? I was the only guy who made it, that’s why. He could have gone ahead and made it. Instead he was making something else.”
