Hoax Reality

It is a common practice of the left to stage an incident and then demand enormous legal changes to respond to their hoax.

Griswold v. Connecticut was a scam orchestrated by Yale law professors to challenge the state’s anti-contraception law. The case was a fraud: The law had never been enforced and never would have been enforced, until the professors held a press conference announcing they were breaking the law.

But we still got the new constitutional “privacy right” which, less than 10 years later, transmogrified into a constitutional right to kill an unborn baby.

The premise of that case, Roe v. Wade, was also a hoax. Norma McCorvey lied about being raped to get an abortion in Texas, but was denied because there was no police report. There was also no rape: She had gotten pregnant for the third time by her mid-20s as a result of a casual sexual encounter.

After Trayvon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman — the “white Hispanic,” since upgraded to full “white” by The New York Times — liberals howled about Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. The case had absolutely nothing to do with that law: Zimmerman wasn’t standing his ground; he was lying on the ground having his head bashed in. The jury accepted Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense and acquitted him.

The law of self-defense has been around since William of Orange ascended to the British throne in 1688. But liberals are still harping about the Trayvon Martin shooting to demand the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws.

Jamie Leigh Jones made fantastical claims about being fed Rohypnol, gang-raped and then held at gunpoint while working for KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, in Iraq in 2005. Without considering the likelihood of a military contractor doing this to an American citizen, knowing she’d get back to the U.S. someday and be able to tell her story, our adversary media and well-paid Democratic senators believed every word out of Jones’ mouth.

As always happens when members of a disfavored racial and gender group — i.e., white males — are accused of heinous acts, liberals heard Jones’ claims and concluded: Well, the one thing we know is: There was a gang-rape. All that’s left to do now is to investigate the military/fraternity/lacrosse rape culture.

Thus, for example, Sen. Patrick Leahy began a hearing on Jones’ insane accusations with this statement of facts: “Jamie Leigh Jones [is] a young woman from Texas who took a job at Halliburton in Iraq in 2005 when she was 20 years old. In her first week on the job, she was drugged and then she was gang-raped by co-workers. When she reported this — remember, 20 years old — she reported this assault, her employers moved her to a locked trailer, where she was kept by armed guards and freed only when the State Department intervened.”

Sen. Al Franken raved about “the culture of impunity” among defense contractors, saying, “Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by KBR employees.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse helpfully added, “But as best I can tell, there is no legitimate intelligence function that involves rape.”

And then, after all the grandstanding, it turned out Jones had made the whole thing up. DNA evidence proved she’d had sex with only one man, and he said it was consensual. The female doctor who examined Jones the day after the alleged attack found no traces of Rohypnol in her system. Both the female doctor, as well as Jones’ own plastic surgeon back in Houston, contradicted Jones’ claim that her breast implants had been ruptured. It also turned out that none of KBR’s employees carry guns, much less machine guns. By the age of 20, even before Jones had left for Iraq, she was 0-for-2 on rape allegations, having already falsely accused two other men of raping her.

No grand jury would indict the poor, falsely accused KBR employee who foolishly had sex with Jones, so she filed a civil suit against that one man. The jury ruled for him, and the court ordered Jones to pay $145,000 in legal costs. Jamie Leigh Jones’ place in the Crystal Magnum, Tawana Brawley Hall of Fame was thus secured.

But we still got Sen. Al Franken’s pro-trial lawyer amendment to a Defense Department bill, touted as the “Anti-Rape Amendment,” prohibiting military contractors from including mandatory arbitration clauses in their employment contracts. Any Republican brave enough to oppose this sop to trial lawyers was denounced as “pro-rape” in mass-phone calls to their offices and by liberal prophet Jon Stewart, who railed on his show, “How is ANYONE against this?”

Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown is today being used as grounds to demand all sorts of new rules for cops. Most people had a pretty good sense of the case after seeing surveillance camera shots of Brown assaulting the manager of a liquor store he was robbing about 10 minutes before his encounter with Officer Wilson. By the time the grand jury documents were released, there was no serious doubt that the shooting was justified.

But again, as a result of a hoax racial incident, Democrats are demanding race quotas for arrests. To hell with due process. If we can stop just one thing that never happened from ever happening again, it will have been worth it.

The only new rule we really need is one to stop these infernal liberal hoaxes. (Ann Coulter)

Might I also point out the whole California Chicken coop charade, where California changes it’s state law about chicken enclosures which will raise the price of eggs by as much as 20% and they wanted to/got to force everyone to do the same just because they could.

The Complete Lie

Remember when electing the First Black president was going to unify us all and save the universe…

Barack Obama 2008: Obama then offered his most strongly worded condemnation of Wright’s comments. “The remarks that have caused this recent firestorm weren’t simply controversial. They weren’t simply a religious leader’s efforts to speak out against perceived injustice. Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country — a view that sees white racism as endemic, and that elevates what is wrong with America above all that we know is right with America…As such, Reverend Wright’s comments were not only wrong but divisive, divisive at a time when we need unity; racially charged at a time when we need to come together to solve a set of monumental problems — two wars, a terrorist threat, a falling economy, a chronic health care crisis and potentially devastating climate change; problems that are neither black or white or Latino or Asian, but rather problems that confront us all.”

He’s lying through his teeth and he knows it.

“This is where we are right now,” he said. “It’s a racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years. Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, black and white, I have never been so naïve as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidate — particularly a candidacy as imperfect as my own. But I have asserted a firm conviction — a conviction rooted in my faith in God and my faith in the American people — that working together we can move beyond some of our old racial wounds, and that in fact we have no choice — we have no choice — if we are to continue on the path of a more perfect union.”

Soaring Rhetoric, but a complete lie.

2013: President Obama called on the nation to honor Trayvon Martin a day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of his murder by asking “ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence.” (NBC)

THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA

“It’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,” Mr. Holder said, winning repeated applause from the NAACP delegates. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken.” (WT)

NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!

Obama: “We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

Fuck the “white” Hispanic!!

radio host Tom Joyner 2011:Let’s not even deal with the facts right now. Let’s deal with just our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.”

Rev Al Sharpton 2011: The Rev. Al Sharpton, an ally of President Obama who has a daily radio show and hosts a nightly cable television program, recently told the president’s black critics, “I’m not telling you to shut up. I’m telling you: Don’t make some of us have to speak up.”

Kychelle Green, 18, (2011) a nursing student at Norfolk State University, agreed. “You know it’s not really his fault that things aren’t changing,” she said. “He’s really trying but he can’t change every rule on his own. Now people are trying to criticize him because he is African American.”  (WP)

Birmingham, Alabama

Dennis Prager: The greatest hope most Americans — including Republicans — had when Barack Obama was elected president was that the election of a black person as the country’s president would reduce, if not come close to eliminating, the racial tensions that have plagued America for generations.

This has not happened. The election, and even the re-election, of a black man as president, in a country that is 87% nonblack — a first in human history — has had no impact on what are called “racial tensions.”

In case there was any doubt about this, the reactions to the George Zimmerman trial have made it clear.

The talk about “open season” on blacks, about blacks like Trayvon Martin being victims of nothing more than racial profiling and about a racist criminal justice system, has permeated black life and the left-wing mainstream media.

I put quotation marks around the term “racial tensions” because the term is a falsehood.

This term is stated as if whites and blacks are equally responsible for these tensions, as if the mistrust is morally and factually equivalent. But this is not at all the case.

“Racial tensions” is a lie perpetrated by the left. A superb example is when the New York Times described the 1991 black anti-Semitic riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as “racial tensions.”

For those who do not recall, or who only read, viewed or listened to mainstream media reports, what happened was that mobs of blacks attacked Jews for three days after a black boy was accidentally hit and killed by a car driven by a Chasidic Jew.

A Brandeis University historian, Edward S. Shapiro, who wrote a book on the events, described those black attacks on innocent Jews as “the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history.”

Blacks stabbed a Jewish student to death, injured other Jews, and screamed, “Heil Hitler!” and “Death to the Jews!” while carrying signs with messages such as “Hitler didn’t finish the job.”

And how did the New York Times report the most serious anti-Semitic incident in American history?

As racial tensions.

One of the Times reporters who covered those riots was Ari Goldman, now a professor of journalism at Columbia University.

Last year, 11 years after the riots, this is how Goldman described his former newspaper’s reporting of the events:

“In all my reporting during the riots, I never saw — or heard of — any violence by Jews against blacks. But the Times was dedicated to this version of events: Blacks and Jews clashing amid racial tensions.”

As a New York Times editorial described the black attacks: “The violence following an auto accident in Crown Heights reminds all New Yorkers that the city’s race relations remain dangerously strained.”

That was the entire left’s take: “strained relations” between blacks and Jews. “Racial tensions.” Both sides equally at fault.

Once one understands that “racial tensions” is a euphemism for a black animosity toward whites and a left-wing construct, one begins to understand why the election of a black president has had no impact on most blacks or on the left.

Since neither black animosity nor the left’s falsehood of “racial tensions” is based on the actual behavior of the vast majority of white Americans, nothing white America could do will affect either many blacks’ perceptions or the leftist libel.

That is why hopes that the election of a black president would reduce “racial tensions” were naive. Though a white person is far more likely to be murdered by a black person than vice versa, all it took was one tragic death of a black kid to reignite the hatred that many blacks and virtually all black leaders have toward white America.

Let’s put this in perspective. Ben Jealous of the NAACP, Al Sharpton of MSNBC, Jesse Jackson, and the left-wing media compete to incite hatred of America generally and white America specifically. Over what? A tragic incident in which a Hispanic man (regularly labeled “white”) said, with all physical evidence to support him, that fearing for his life, he killed a black 17-year-old (regularly labeled “a child”).

The very fact that George Zimmerman — who is as white as Barack Obama — is labeled “white” bears testimony to the left-wing agenda of blaming white America and to the desire of many blacks to vent anger at whites.

And that is why the election of a black president has meant nothing.

Indeed, to those whose lives and/or ideologies are predicated on labeling America and its white population as racist, it wouldn’t matter if half the Senate, half the House and half the governors were black.

IBD: What’s more, charging Zimmerman under federal hate-crimes law would defy the findings of the FBI’s own investigation conducted last year. All told, agents interviewed no fewer than 45 Zimmerman co-workers, neighbors and other acquaintances — including even his ex-fiance — and found no evidence of racial bias.None said Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch captain, had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26, 2012, self-defense shooting of Martin, who while under the influence of illegal drugs had jumped Zimmerman, breaking his nose and bashing his head repeatedly on the pavement. The 17-year-old Martin was visiting Zimmerman’s gated community in Sanford, Fla., while on school suspension for alleged burglary.

Lead Sanford Police Detective Chris Serino told the FBI that race wasn’t behind the shooting.

“Serino believed that Zimmerman’s actions were not based on Martin’s skin color (but) rather on his attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community,” the FBI wrote in its report. “Serino described Zimmerman as overzealous and as having a ‘little hero complex,’ but not as a racist.”

Even an African-American officer — Sanford Police Sgt. Arthur Barns — denied Zimmerman targeted Martin because he was black. He “felt the shooting was not racially motivated,” the FBI report stated.

Justice Is Blindfolded

Political Cartoons by Robert Ariail
MABLETON, Ga. –Cobb County police have arrested four alleged gang members linked to a fatal hit-and-run crash on Mableton Parkway.

The suspects are accused of beating the victim and then forcing him into the path of a car.

The fatal crash happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday, near Factory Shoals Road and Mableton Parkway. Joshua Heath Chellew, 36, of Mableton was struck by a vehicle and later died.

Authorities said Chellew did not know his attackers. A friend of Chellew said that the two had gone to a gas station when several men jumped Chellew.

“They started punching him. They starting beating on him,” said the woman, who asked not to be identified.

Arrest warrants said that the Chellew attempted to escape his attackers by backing into Mableton Parkway. Chellew was then knocked down onto the roadway, where he was struck by the vehicle.

The following four suspects are charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and violation of the Georgia Street Gang Act.  They are currently being held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

– Jekari Strozier (19-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)
– Antonio Pass (18-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)
– Johnathan Anthony (18-year-old male from the Mableton, Georgia)
– Kemonta Bonds (18-year-old male from Mableton, Georgia)

Anthony made his first court appearance Tuesday night. The other three suspects are expected to face a judge on Wednesday.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Chellew turned himself into authorities. Police said that he does not face any criminal charges. Authorities said he did pull over and call 911 after he realized that he’d struck someone. (Myfox atlanta)

If the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case is so big because of the ‘race’ factor, then why in the hell isn’t the Joshua Chellew murder in Georgia newsworthy in the national media? Four black ‘teens’ have been arrested, but if you read the NBC Atlanta news report, you wouldn’t know the four thugs were black:

19 year old Jekari Oshay Strozier, 18 year old Antonio Shantwan Pass, 18 year old Johnathan Donald Anthony, and 18 year old Kemonta Bonds, all from Mableton, are in the Cobb County jail without bonds on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault and violation of the Georgia Street Gang Act.

Instead, the biased NBC network just describes them as ‘teens.’ The video in which the reporter describes the thugs shows them to be black, but no mention from the reporter about the racial component.

Chellew did nothing to provoke these black thugs, yet gets killed and no coverage. (Fire Andrea Mitchell blog)

Because he was white, they were black, and there was no gun. So there are no Agenda items to tick off. So why would they bother. It’s not like they are “journalists” or anything… 🙂

Commentor: Who gives a fuck? A grown 36 year old man should be able to defend himself against teenagers. If he couldn’t, that’s his fault. Trayvon on the other hand was just a kid being harassed by a wannabe cop with a gun. White people should pay for not hundreds but thousands of years of slavery of black people. The time has come.

The oppressed become the oppressors? a White person is 3/5 of a person maybe?

Hmmm….

But let’s get back to what really matters, Al Sharpton and The NAACP are mad as hell and they want you to suffer for it so they can soak up the hate like a succubus.

Mableton Update: “There is no testimonial evidence nor is there any physical evidence to indicate this is racially motivated,” said Sgt. Dana Pierce of the Cobb County Police Department.

Is that because he was white or was it something else?

FBI: George Zimmerman- No Civil Rights Violations. Not a racist. (The FBI concluded over a year ago).

Which one will the media ignore anyhow because it’s not on the Agenda?

BOTH.

Games of Chance

Agenda Note: President Obama called on the nation to honor Trayvon Martin a day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of his murder by asking “ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence.”

After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

But The DOJ and Obama had so much political capital tied up in it that they can’t let it go.

It’s sad that all this is is a political games of chess. And we are all the pawns.

Just Like ObamaCare.

For many workers, the one-year delay in ObamaCare’s employer mandate was too little, too late.

But it wasn’t done for them anyhow. It was for the Democrats running in 2014. 🙂

The delay doesn’t offer sufficient reason for CY Farms in upstate New York to reconsider its decision to cut 25 workers from its payroll, managing partner Craig Yunker told IBD.

Those workers were let go when the farm decided that the additional costs of complying with ObamaCare made it hard to justify planting a labor-intensive cabbage crop this year.

“Last February is when we needed to make decisions about buying seed and growing the transplants in a greenhouse,” Yunker said.

The slimmed-down farm now falls just below the 50 full-time-equivalent worker threshold at which ObamaCare’s mandates kick in.

The 2010 health law’s nondeductible penalties of $2,000 per worker (minus the first 30 workers) could have cut roughly $80,000 from CY Farms’ after-tax bottom line.

Like CY Farms, many public and private employers had shifted their hiring policies to limit new liability under ObamaCare by the time the Obama administration moved on July 2 to delay the employer mandate until 2015.

For most, the reason for acting so early had nothing to do with the planting calendar and everything to do with the compliance calendar. That’s because ObamaCare penalties that had been set to take effect in 2014 were supposed to be based on staffing levels in the second half of 2013.

The state of Virginia passed a law in February limiting hourly wage employees, including adjunct professors at state community colleges and universities, to 29 hours per week. At the time, the state said about 7,300 workers faced reduced hours.

A spokesman for Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell signaled that there’s no consideration of a temporary change in the law.

The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, which operates 330 stores, had to cut hours for about 600 workers starting in April. The one-year delay in the employer mandate will be of no help to these workers, the agency confirmed.

Under ObamaCare, large employers are required to offer 95% of full-time workers health coverage, or else face a $2,000 per-worker fine. Yet those who offer coverage that is deemed too pricey or too skimpy would pay a $3,000 annual fine per full-time worker who accesses ObamaCare subsidies.

To minimize the costs of complying with ObamaCare, many employers have sought to limit the number of employees clocking 30 hours per week, ObamaCare’s definition of full-time.

The Buca di Beppo restaurant chain has cut the hours of about 400 workers below 30 per week, the founder of operating company Earl Enterprises told the Orlando Sentinel. Though the interview came the week after the mandate delay, Robert Earl gave no hint that he might rethink the move.

Another potential way of limiting liability under ObamaCare is by increasing reliance on temp workers. Reuters reported that Wal-Mart (WMT) has done just that, boosting the temp share of its U.S. workforce from 1% or 2% to “fewer than 10%” this year.

It’s inconceivable that a temporary reprieve from ObamaCare’s employer mandate would cause Wal-Mart to reverse course.

For many large employers, shifting the full-time and part-time mix of employees is like turning a battleship — especially if the change primarily affects new hires.

Thus it’s not surprising that many began the shift long before the mandate delay.

Labor Department data show that the average workweek for nonsupervisory retail workers, which reached a post-recession peak of 30.8 hours in January 2012, has steadily fallen to 30.1 hours as of June.

Another sector hit hard by ObamaCare’s mandate is public education.

Squeezed by government fiscal constraints, many school boards and community colleges, facing untenable new costs under ObamaCare, have acted to cut worker hours.

Ivy Tech Community College, which has grown increasingly reliant on adjunct faculty at its 23 Indiana campuses, adopted a new policy capping adjunct course loads this spring. It’s been holding job fairs to recruit new adjuncts.

Communications Director Jeff Fanter said Ivy Tech intends to “to stay with the plan and not bounce back and forth” due to the mandate delay.

A couple of school boards that voted to reduce hours for some workers said they’ll ease up, temporarily, to keep their employees from taking a hit.

Vigo County Superintendent Daniel Tanoos told Indiana Public Media, “Right now we’re going to go back to treating our employees with dignity, and giving them back the hours that were cut and the money that was taken out of their pockets.”

Fort Wayne Community Schools won’t reverse its decision to cut the hours of 610 teaching aides and cafeteria workers. That move came amid major budget challenges that would have been exacerbated by the health law’s mandate, said Chief Financial Officer Kathy Friend.

While some of the cuts might have been put off without the mandate, she said there was no thought of putting them on hold due to the delay.

“We already went through the pain,” she said. (IBD)

We Have a Winner

The predictable response from the race-baiters on George Zimmerman being found “not guilty”.

After George Zimmerman was found not guilty of all charges on Saturday evening, an Associated Press reporter, Cristina Silva, tweeted this out from her verified twitter account: “So we can all kill teenagers now? Just checking.”

http://landing.newsinc.com/shared/video.html?freewheel=90085&sitesection=breitbart_nws_us_sty_vmppap&VID=24946727

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUexNTYxNxk

Nothing like a good righteous over the top hate fest to make everyone feel better.

It is sad that so many define “Justice” as finding Zimmerman guilty in spite of the facts. This lynch_mob mentality is a sad commentary on our society. (Breitbart commentor)

It’s the laws fault you know that George Zimmerman could be “emboldened” to carry the gun, stalk Trayvon and kill him and the law found him not guilty because it was set up that way. (a paraphrase of Ms Hart-Perry from MSNBC)

The set it up so White (Hispanic) People can stalk and kill young black teenagers like they are on a game reserve in Africa and you can’t do anything about it.

<<Maniacal Laughter>>

Really? How is this helping. It’s not. But damn it makes the left feel morally outraged and beside it pushes their agenda and that is never a bad thing for them.

Who gives a crap about the facts. The kid was Black. He was White (hispanic). It’s obvious he stalked and killed this kid because of race. End of story. 🙂

Thomas Sowell: I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white.

Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 31% of blacks think that most blacks are racists, while 24% of blacks think that most whites are racist.

The difference between these percentages is not great, but it is remarkable nevertheless. After all, generations of blacks fought the white racism from which they suffered for so long. If many blacks themselves now think that most other blacks are racist, that is startling.

The moral claims advanced by generations of black leaders — claims that eventually touched the conscience of the nation and turned the tide toward civil rights for all — have now been cheapened by today’s generation of black “leaders,” who act as if it is all just a matter of whose ox is gored.

Even in legal cases involving terrible crimes — the O.J. Simpson murder trial or the charges of gang rape against Duke University students — many black “leaders” and their followers have not waited for facts about who was guilty and who was not, but have immediately taken sides, based on who was black and who was white.

Among whites, according to the same Rasmussen poll, 38% consider most blacks racist and 10% consider most whites racist. Broken down by politics, the same poll showed that 49% of Republicans consider most blacks racist, as do 36% of independents and 29% of Democrats.

Perhaps most disturbing of all, just 29% of Americans as a whole think race relations are getting better, while 32% think race relations are getting worse. The difference is too close to call, but the fact that it is so close is itself painful — and perhaps a warning sign for where we are heading.

Is this what so many Americans, both black and white, struggled for, over the decades and generations, to try to put the curse of racism behind us — only to reach a point where retrogression in race relations now seems at least equally likely as progress?

What went wrong?

Perhaps no single factor can be blamed for all the things that went wrong. Insurgent movements of all sorts, in countries around the world, have for centuries soured in the aftermath of their own success. “The revolution betrayed” is a theme that goes back at least as far as 18th-century France.

The civil rights movement in 20th-century America attracted many people who put everything on the line for the sake of fighting against racial oppression. But the eventual success of that movement attracted opportunists, and even turned some idealists into opportunists.

Over the generations, black leaders have ranged from noble souls to shameless charlatans. After the success of the civil rights insurgency, the latter have come into their own, gaining money, power and fame by promoting racial attitudes and actions that are counterproductive to the interests of those they lead.

None of this is unique to blacks or to the U.S. In various countries and times, leaders of groups that lagged behind, economically and educationally, have taught their followers to blame all their problems on other people — and to hate those other people.

This was the history of anti-Semitic movements in Eastern Europe between the two World Wars, anti-Ibo movements in Nigeria in the 1960s, and anti-Tamil movements that turned Sri Lanka from a peaceful nation into a scene of lethal mob violence and then decades-long civil war, both marked by unspeakable atrocities.

Groups that rose from poverty to prosperity seldom did so by having racial or ethnic leaders. While most Americans can easily name a number of black leaders, current or past, how many can name Asian American ethnic leaders or Jewish ethnic leaders?

The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.

But they are so good for Divide and Conquer, Hate & Fear Political Power. And you throw in Self-Righteousness and you have a winner!

And we all lose…

Liberals are Skunks

Over the past few years I have had a series of “Liberals are…” that analyzes Liberals from different perspectives.

I started out with Bees. Then Zombies. Then Drones.

Now, the fourth in the series, Skunks.

Skunks are generally loners concerned with themselves but they may gather in communal dens for warmth (in liberals case Hate) and they have poor vision.

They will spray a noxious and offensive liquid at you from their anus (liberal mouth) if threatened. And they have sharp claws for digging in burrows (hole-y beliefs).

They live longer in captivity than freedom.

But unlike real skunks Liberal carry a seemingly infinite supply of spray.

Most Predators (Republicans) are afraid to attack them for fear of being sprayed.

To domesticate it you have to remove it’s scent gland so it doesn’t spray you.

Thus, most liberals are not only undomesticated, but totally feral and wild. 🙂

You have to remove their scent glands  to domesticate them and get them to behave with other peacefully.

Preventative measures, such as removing attractants from the vicinity of your house, will decrease the likelihood of an encounter with any wild animal.

Thinks like The Constitution. The American Flag. TEA Party Signs. A Gun Rack. Anything to do with Pro-Life. Pro-Military.Not “green” enough. A Picture of the Devil Himself- George W Bush or the Boogiemen, The Koch Brothers.

So just deal with it. It’s your cross to bear for not being them.

So just shut up.

The environment should be “green” and peaceful and incapable of upsetting the Liberal. Thus you have to agree that it is the superior life form and 100% right every time on anything it says at any time or you risk being sprayed or clawed.

Tragically, some people feel the only solution to a resident skunk is to put out a live trap, catch the skunk, and then destroy or relocate them. Inevitably, another skunk or wild animal will move into the area and the cycle begins all over again. Skunks, like other suburban and urban wildlife, prefer to live the easy life we unknowingly provide for them and don’t like a hostile environment.

Moving an animal can also spread disease, not just between the old community and the new, but also between species. (City of Sacramento General Services).

So just be nice to the liberal and don’t challenge them. They are after all, Home Superior Liberalis and you’re not.

So shut up and keep out of their way. They want what they want when they want it and if you don’t give it to them you’ll be sprayed. 🙂

After all, George Zimmerman is not only guilty but he’s a “White Hispanic” because if he was an actual Hispanic and/or not guilty then there would not only be no media attention (Or DOJ lead protests) but no spray and we can’t have that now can we? 🙂

A half-cocked Liberal with no spray is a terrible think to waste.

Because Homo Superior Liberalis is never, ever , wrong. 🙂

On March 8, 2012, the Associated Press wrote, “The neighborhood watch leader is white.” When it came out that he was not, media outlets including CNN began labeling Zimmerman a “white Hispanic” in order to maintain the false narrative that the killing was race-based.

And race is the only thing on trial in Sanford,FL. The only thing.

So get ready to get sprayed.

Hooked

Eric Holder, for instance, is very interested. So interested that he appears to have used Justice Department resources to facilitate protests on behalf of Trayvon Martin, when an American who is guaranteed “innocent until proven guilt” had yet to even see his charging documents.

A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.

The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

CRS spent $674.14 between March 25-27 related to having been “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.” CRS spent another $1,142.84 for the same purpose between March 25-28.

That got the Police Chief fired. 🙂

Ultimately, public pressure forced the prosecution to bring the case, even though the evidence and witness testimony was specious at best. Did George Zimmerman shoot Trayvon Martin, killing him? Probably. But the rest is a murky puddle of affirmative defenses and unreliable testimony coupled with agenda-driven witnesses and non-profits. Prosecutors would probably, in the absence of public pressure, have offered Zimmerman some sort of deal to keep the case out of court, but because people kept showing up to rallies like this one all the way up to April of this year, you can bet no one felt that a plea bargain agreement was an option, which means the DOJ interfered, at least in a small way, with prosecutorial discretion.

That said, at least you know that, if you can hit all the right buttons, you too can get the Department of Justice to pick your side in a fight and beyond that, help you bus in protesters from out of state to march around and look angry. Maybe. (Naked DC)

Victor Davis Hanson: When do insensitive words destroy reputations?

It all depends.

Celebrity chef Paula Deen was dropped by her TV network, her publisher and many of her corporate partners after she testified in a legal deposition that she used the N-word some 30 years ago. The deposition was filed in a lawsuit against Deen and her brother over allegations of sexual and racial harassment.

Actor Alec Baldwin just recently let loose with a slur of homophobic crudities. Unlike Deen, Baldwin spewed his epithets in the present. He tweeted them publicly, along with threats of physical violence. So far he has avoided Paula Dean’s ignominious fate.

Does race determine whether a perceived slur is an actual slur?

It depends.

Some blacks use the N-word in ways supposedly different from those of ill-intentioned white racists. Testimony revealed that the late Trayvon Martin had used the N-word in reference to George Zimmerman and had also referred to Zimmerman as a “creepy-ass cracker” who was following him.

Some members of the media have suggested that we should ignore such inflammatory words and instead focus on whether Zimmerman, who has been described as a “white Hispanic,” used coded racist language during his 911 call.

Actor Jamie Foxx offers nonstop racialist speech of the sort that a white counterpart would not dare. At the recent NAACP Image Awards (of all places), Foxx gushed: “Black people are the most talented people in the world.” Earlier, on Saturday Night Live, Foxx had joked of his recent role in a Quentin Tarantino movie: “I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?”

Foxx has not suffered the fate of Paula Deen. He certainly has not incurred the odium accorded comedian Michael Richards, who crudely used the N-word in 2006 toward two African-American hecklers of his stand-up routine.

Yet whites at times seem exempt from any fallout over the slurring of blacks. Democratic Minnesota state representative Ryan Winkler recently tweeted of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s vote to update the Voting Rights Act: “VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” Winkler’s implication was that four of the jurists were veritable racists, while Thomas was a sellout. After a meek apology, nothing much happened to Winkler.

Winkler’s “Uncle Thomas” racial slur was mild in comparison to the smear of Justice Thomas by MSNBC talking head and African-American professor Michael Eric Dyson, who made incendiary on-air comments invoking Hitler and the holocaust.

Does profanity against women destroy celebrity careers?

Not really.

TV talk-show host Bill Maher used two vulgar female slang terms to reference Sarah Palin, without any major consequences.

Those Palin slurs were mild in comparison to late-night television icon David Letterman’s crude riff that Palin’s then-14-year old daughter was impregnated by baseball star Alex Rodriguez.

In contrast, when talk-show host Rush Limbaugh demeaned activist Sandra Fluke as a “slut,” outrage followed. Sponsors were pressured to drop Limbaugh. Some did. Unlike the targeted Palin, Fluke became a national icon of popular feminist resistance.

So how do we sort out all these slurs and the contradictory consequences that follow them?

Apparently, racist, sexist or homophobic words themselves do not necessarily earn any rebuke. Nor is the race or gender of the speaker always a clue to the degree of outrage that follows.

Instead, the perceived ideology of the perpetrator is what matters most. Maher and Letterman, being good liberals, could hardly be crude sexists. But when the conservative Limbaugh uses similar terms, it must be a window into his dark heart.

It’s apparently OK for whites or blacks to slur conservative Clarence Thomas in racist terms. Saying anything similar of the late liberal Justice Thurgood Marshall would have been blasphemous.

In short, we are dealing not with actual word crimes, but with supposed thought crimes.

The liberal media and popular culture have become our self-appointed thought police. Politics determines whether hate speech is a reflection of real hate or just an inadvertent slip, a risqué joke or an anguished reaction to years of oppression.

Poor Paula Deen. She may protest accusations of racism by noting that she supported Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns. But the media instead fixates on her deep Southern accent and demeanor, which supposedly prove her speech was racist in a way that left-wing and cool Jamie Foxx purportedly could never be.

We cannot forgive conservative Mel Gibson for his despicable, drunken anti-Semitic rants. But it appears we can pardon liberal Alec Baldwin for his vicious homophobic outbursts. The former smears are judged by the thought police to be typical, but the latter slurs are surely aberrant.

The crime is not hate speech, but hate thought — a state of mind that apparently only self-appointed liberal referees can sort out.

And they are hooked on the power to destroy anyone anywhere whenever THEY want.
