TU4SD board member supports homophobic businesses

cropped-TSON.jpg

Gabby Mercer is one of the Hunnicutt’s creations and also on the board of their anti-MAS group TU4SD… so the picture above comes as no surprise, especially since Mercer has already been caught on photo supporting Arizona’s top Turkey, Tom Horne. Not the brown meat of course. Speaking of cold turkey, she is the GOP candidate facing Raul Grijalva in the general, that is, if he makes it out of a heated primary next month. Grijalva is the “truth to power” candidate who is too chicken to go after the cocky John Pedicone and his assault on MAS… Buy Three […]

Japan vs US: Gun control and homicide facts

cropped-TSON.jpg

Of the world’s 23 “rich” countries, the U.S. gun-related murder rate is almost 20 times that of the other 22. With almost one privately owned firearm per person, America’s ownership rate is the highest in the world; tribal-conflict-torn Yemen is ranked second, with a rate about half of America’s. But what about the country at the other end of the spectrum? What is the role of guns in Japan, the developed world’s least firearm-filled nation and perhaps its strictest controller? In 2008, the U.S. had over 12 thousand firearm-related homicides. All of Japan experienced only 11, fewer than were killed […]

Black couple banned from getting married at Baptist church in Mississippi

cropped-TSON.jpg

They had booked their wedding far in advance. The invitations had been sent, the programs printed. But one day before Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson were to be married at the Mississippi church they frequented, they said a pastor told them they would have to find another venue — because they were black. There has never been a black wedding at the First Baptist Church in Crystal Springs, Miss., since its founding in 1883. According to Pastor Stan Weatherford, some church members objected so strongly to breaking that precedent, they threatened to oust him from his pastorship. via Mississippi Church Refuses […]

Three Sonorans responds to KGUN9 claims of no bias in covering Latino issues

cropped-TSON.jpg

  Earlier this week I did an interview with KGUN9, the ABC affiliate in Tucson that is owned by the Journal Broadcasting Group which also owns the Jon Justice show. There have been MANY problems with their coverage of Latino events, and Derechos Humanos refuses to be interviewed by KGUN9 ever again for their slanting of the news. Earlier this year Professor Rudy Acuña was interviewed by KGUN9 and had to respond to their coverage for “misrepresenting what he said.” I already knew going into the interview that my attempts to educate the journalist on the depths of this issue […]

More Minutemen in trouble with the law; what part of ILLEGAL IS ILEGAL do they not understand?

cropped-TSON.jpg

First there was Forde. Then there was J.T. Ready, the neo-Nazi border watcher who ended his career by shooting up his girlfriend and her family and then shooting himself. Now we have Todd Hezlitt, erstwhile companion of Shawna Forde and now a fugitive on the lam with someone’s 15-year-old daughter: You could chalk up some of border militiaman Todd Hezlitt’s troubles to bad luck – who knew when he associated with Shawna Forde in 2008 that she would end up killing people the next year and drag his name into the mud? But his most recent trouble – deputies say the 38-year-old Hezlitt ran away with a […]
