Oh, and he’s bitter and junk.
‘BITTER’ HANK AARON ‘FED UP’ READERS TOOK KKK QUOTES OUT OF CONTEXT, WAS REFERRING TO ‘CEOS, CORPORATE AMERICA’
Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly “upset” and “bitter” because he feels that readers — not the reporter who wrote the story — took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama’s policies now wear “neckties and starched shirts” instead of KKK hoods out of context.
And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party.

Menderman sends us a video profiling The World. The World is a ship that houses 200 people who live on board permanently. It’s a floating mini-city.
Rescuers recovered the body of one mountain guide on Saturday after an ice avalanche swept the lower slopes of Mount Everest, bringing the death toll to at least 13 in the deadliest accident on the world’s highest mountain.
The avalanche struck a perilous passage called the Khumbu Icefall, which is riddled with crevasses and piled with serac – or huge chunks of ice – that can break free without warning.

‘He raised $1B for campaign’: Dems seeking $100 million
in taxpayer funds for Obama library sparks disgust
Bill Clinton sent friendly, handwritten note to chairman of mosque that al-Awlaki led, al-Qaeda operatives worked for, 9/11 hijackers worshipped there
Clinton’s note was released as part of a document dump Friday by the Clinton presidential library.
The note was marked “THE PRESIDENT HAS SEEN 3-10-00.”
“I’m interested in all these suggestions. Let’s follow up,” Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note “Bill.”
The Dar Al-Hjrah Mosque was visited by FBI agents after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks after it was discovered that two 9/11 hijackers had worshipped at the mosque.
The mosque’s imam from 1995 to 1999, prior to Clinton’s note, was Mohammed Al Hanooti, who was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing by a U.S. attorney.
See if you’re good at identifying the worst offenders of all the “ists and isms.”
