Author of Eyes on the Prize not good enough for The Jackson Free Press

I'd hit my JFP quota for the week as I do try to spread the hate around, which is not too hard when the national media, Clarion-Ledger, local idiots, and the JFP are available. However, I saw this gem on their forums tonight written by the great one herself.

"No thank you Charlotta about that book "ENOUGH" Juan Williams works for fox news and they don't hide that they are pro conservative. Get me an unbiased book than I'll read it. And ladd i try but you teaching me to zero in Dec 06, 07 10:58 pm New Jackson.....

And I'm with NewJack on this one, too: I don't read books by FOXNews commentators.
Dec 06, 07 11:59 pm Ladd"

This is a perfect example of how close-minded she is. Who is Juan Williams? Mr. Williams is the author of the non-fiction bestseller Eyes on The Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965. It is considered to be one of the leading books on the Civil Rights Movement and was written in conjunction with PBS's award-winning series of the same name. Mr. Williams was also a reporter for The Washington Post from 1976-1999. Ms. Ladd ignores the fact that he is also a correspondent for National Public Radio, hardly a bastion of conservatism. See his biography at

All that matters to Miss Ladd is that Mr. Williams works for Fox. The fact that he is one of the leading civil rights authors is irrelevant. His history as a leading national correspondent and Emmy-award winner are meaningless. His strong record on pushing America to recognize its past wrongs against Blacks do not matter in her mind. All that matters is FOX FOX FOX and her precious agenda. How petty. How ignorant. What was it Nietzsche said? Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when youlook into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you.

Not even Juan Williams is good enough for her. Amazing. Simply..... progressive.

You hit for the cycle on this post King. Great job. I'm going to send a link to this one to my metro mailing lists with no comment at all. There is nothing to ad to what you've said. She confirms the size of her sandbox each and every day.

and the sad part is is that I've seen Eyes on the Prize and if there is anyone who should be promoting it and Juan Williams, its her.

I do recommend watching it if given the chance.

You know, this reminds me in some ways of some of the more extreme fundamentalists I've known in my life. Folks who have long since given up television but let themselves read Agatha Christie novels until they find out she once said or wrote something that offends their beliefs, so they remove her from the list and try to find joy somewhere else.

This isn't to say that I'd necessarily agree with Enough--the reviews I've read suggest to me I probably wouldn't--but you know, I would be living in a tiny and ever-shrinking world if I never let myself read anyone I don't agree with. That's what one does when one is holding on to an ideology that, deep down, one doesn't really believe is true.

Kingfish said...

This is akin to Lenin and Trotsky or the radicals who supported X and though MLK was an Uncle Tom. You can see this for what it is.

I disagree with you. I think she does believe in the ideology when push comes to shove and that includes any Black person, regardless of their stand and record on civil rights. She has avoided being challenged on her statement all day.

That one she wrote yesterday about 70k families leaving Jackson with their tax base was a doozy.

Re: Williams. His accomplishments speak far louder than Ladd's words of dismissal. Tell me this is shabby company? A poster challenged her earlier today and she just ducked.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
