Kansas City sportswriter Jason Whitlock loves to stoke controversy. So after he blamed Jovan Belcher´s murder-suicide on the "gun culture" -- inspiring NBC Sports lecturer Bob Costas -- in an interview with Roland Martin, he added fuel to the fire by claiming "the NRA is the new KKK." Apparently, black youths are "armed" by the NRA, and they´re also responsible for loading up black neighborhoods with drugs: WHITLOCK: Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity
Comments: Un.be.lievable! There is just no reason anymore in the media. It is just stunning to behold. I have to say the comments from Whitlock are shocking because he has been rather reasonable in the past.
This is just the start. Belcher didn´t murder his girlfriend and kill himself, whitey did it. White gun makers are flooding the inner cities with handguns to induce innocent youths to kill each other. It´s all racist! The usual suspects will soon be out in force, Reverend Al, Maxine the Mouth, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, et al.
And might I remind everyone that the Democrat Party are the new Slave Owners...Blacks are owned and are dissed at every opportunity. Vote for us and we give you chicken bones for food and your children have no shoes.
Uh, remember how all of us used to be the good guys? How we all lived by the teachings of God and the laws of our nation, at every level?
Yeah, we´ll all be in jail soon, for something. Doesn´t matter what..... could be for typing messages like this. Could be due to emails we send our, or our FB pages. Could be because somebody somewhere reported to the authorities that we did, or said, something they were offended by. Could even be because of our voter registrations.... they´ll be watching for us, and only us, to commit some new crime they just thought of.
Remember DHS missive concerning ´´domestic terrorists´´ as, basically, US? Did you know it had been updated? http://info.publicintelligence.net/DHS-ExtremismLexicon.pdf
Many years ago, this idiot was a sportscaster here in St Louis and didn´t know s*ht from shinola then either. I have no idea how he got picked up by the networks way back then. Plain and simple, he´s an idiot - - always was, always will be. Another lib who achieved well beyond his level of incompetence, and therefore thinks he is smart and has something of value to say.
Well, opinions are like anal sphincters (ASs)...everyone has one. Bob and Jason are (ASs) and not qualified nor experienced to offer a credible position on this. I assume now that the MSM has come out and shown its true colors, I offer my opinion that ABCCBSNBC is the Pravda of the new USSA. Not to be believed, but to be closely monitored as an excellent open source intel media IOT glean where the National and International socialists are headed.
Actually, after being defeated in the Civil War, southern Democrats stripped newly-freed blacks of their Second Amendment rights, right around the time that Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan and began using it as their party´s domestic terrorism wing.
Jason Whitlock and Bob Costas are just about the most ignorant, arrogant, witless pieces of excrement you could ever run across.
The NRA doesn´t promote gun violence, drug use or gang membership. Those cultural poisons are peddled largely by black popular culture.
Headline: ´´Columnist Who Inspired Bob Costas Drops New Bomb: ´The NRA Is the New KKK´´´
And why don´t you run with that thought next Sunday night, Boob Costas!
Seriously, I like the NFL, but in the wake of these dramatic and shocking deaths, I think little Bob Costas in his own clever way was trying to deflect the immediate spotlight away from serious NFL problems, like the prevalence drugs and violence.
Well played #21. Indeed the gun control movement in this nation shares the same roots at the KKK, limiting the power and freedom of the freed former slaves.
What freightens me is how the big lies have been repeated enough to prove the "big lie" theory. We have droves of brainwashed masses that accept this drivel.
"There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”—Booker T. Washington in his 1911 book, My Larger Education
I was wondering how long it would be after the so-called election for the left to come out swinging against the 2nd amendment.
I was actually surprised it took them this long. The NFL shooting was an instant trigger for them. So far, not one single word about the "Roid Rage" effect of all the gallons of steroids these super athlete millionaires inject. Well, I am seeing lines drawn in the sand now. Take away guns from law abiding whities and leave the "Hood" thugs well armed- they the tough ones, best be leavin´ dem folks alone! White boys are easy.
A lot of words about guns hereabouts; all for naught because amoral people will kill with whatever they can lay their hands on. Think about the few words spoken by God to the amoral couple of this Gun Article when they faced His judgment to get out of His face, the ultimate DIS.
A 20-something African American youth that never knew his father. His mother is working a minimum wage job at best, a crack addict at worst. He probably lives with his grandma or aunt as the State has taken custody away from his biological mother. He watches the glorification of violence, the drug culture, subjugation of women, theft and the squandering of money and his freedom from hip hop videos, Hollywood movies and the NBA. In other words today´s pop culture. He has multiple tattoos paying tribute to his multiple children with multiple mothers. He is a low level drug dealer selling $20 bags of crack and marijuana. In a deal gone bad in the abandoned house he is squatting, he shoots another 20 something with a similar background.
On Fox News this morning, Alan Colmes, of all people, thought that both Whitlock and Costas overreacted. Jon Scott, for once, hung in their and drove home his point that people kill people. It´s not the guns.
ESPN´s ´Pardon the Interruption´ just opened with a discussion of this. The hideous, pompous, racist Mike Wilbon praised Costas and Whitlock, the coward Kornheiser didn´t jump on the bandwagon but let Wilbon´s toxicity stand. Would that the Wilbons of the world would just stew in their own juices but sadly the stench permeates our country.
Well gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters it looks like we are all klansman now. Would somebody call these race hustlers out and poke a hole in this phoney crap. As a judge once said in a congressional hearing looking for communist in the 1950´s, "Congressman have you no shame." Mr. Costa I ask you the same. Of course he doesn´t.
I hollered at the TV during the halftime when Costas went on his anti-2nd amendment soapbox quoting Whitlock, who in the past had commented intelligently about the culture of violence in the NBA particularly. Apparently the rest of the racists scorned and shamed him into this latest KKK/NRA diatribe
Well, Jason, now that you´ve blamed guns and Whitey for what Belcher did, you can now blame the white teachers you had. Evidently they didn´t teach you correct English because they are racists. "Between he and his girl friend..." Please.
Guess what? Jovan Belcher would have beat his girl friend to death anyway: http://www.schnittshow.com/cc-common/news/sections/newsarticle.html?feed=124415&article=10613083. He was quite adept at being a punk pos. Of course, it´s much harder beating yourself to death, but all Belcher had to do was to walk in the wrong areas of KC and flash a wad of cash and some jewelry around and his bro´s woulda taken care of beating him to death.
This is easy Jason. I could say YOU are a racist using your position in the media to encourage laws that will result in more rapes, robberies and murders of innocent Americans. You don´t protect innocent Americans by disarming them. You only make the streets safer for criminals. Why do you hate innocent Americans Jason? If you are really concerned about inner city gun crime YOU ought to join the NRA and help them pressure Democrat mayors to use Project Exile which requires a minimum 5 year sentence in a federal prison out of the area for a gun crime. YOUR Democrat mayors resist this plan and instead dismiss or plea bargain away gun crimes. That fact is easily verified. So, shut your ignorant mouth and do something to help stop gun violence instead of encouraging rape, robbery and murder.
AILES: Well, generally I don’t confirm or deny any rumors; that’s a rumor at the moment. However Megyn has earned a better time period, she’ll be in our prime time lineup. But I must quickly say that all of our stars will be back. We have new deals with Hannity and Greta and Shep. Shep and I have been working quietly on something we’ll roll out, probably in mid September, about how news is presented. I think it’s kinda done in an old fashioned way and I think we have a
The conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) is preparing to unveil legislation that would replace ObamaCare with a new set of healthcare reforms. A spokesman for RSC Chairman Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) confirmed Friday that members of the group will introduce their measure after the August recess. "Chairman Scalise and the RSC Health Care Working Group are drafting legislation to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a conservative alternative that fixes the problems in our healthcare system without the harmful taxes and mandates in the President´s law,"
Sen. John McCain responded Thursday to President Barack Obama’s quip about their relationship being “a classic romantic comedy,” saying it was probably reminiscent of “The Honeymooners” or “I Love Lucy.” “Given my age, how about … ‘The Honeymooners’ or maybe ‘I Love Lucy,’” the Arizona Republican told CNN’s John Berman, laughing when asked what comedy would best describe the sometimes difficult relationship. “The point is, I want to work with the president where the nation’s interests are at stake and we can work together. “There are other areas such as what we just described,
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., sent a letter Friday to embattled San Diego Mayor and fellow Democrat Bob Filner, urging him to resign. Boxer’s letter was written on a personal level, though her office provided it to reporters as “an open letter.” Filner stands accused of sexual harassment by a growing list of women who say he attempted to use his office to get them to go on dates with him. Other women said Filner tried to kiss or grope them. Filner has refused to resign and said he is receiving treatment to address his behavior. “Dear Bob,”
The only black lawmaker in the U.S. Senate blasted Senate majority leader Harry Reid on Friday for comments suggesting Republican opposition to President Barack Obama is the result of racism. South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican, called on the Nevada Democrat to apologize after saying during a radio interview on Friday that he hopes Republican opposition to Obama is “based on substance and not the fact that he’s African-American.” “I am sincerely disappointed by continued attempts to divide the American people by playing to the lowest common denominator,” Scott said.
Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. (AP/J. Scott Applewhite) Last week, it was Harry Reid telling his Senate colleagues to "sit down and shut up." Not so long ago, it was the Senate Majority Leader playing the part of Joe McCarthy by sliming Mitt Romney with slanderous, never-documented suggestions that the Republican presidential nominee was a tax evader. These are only a couple of recent examples of the Nevada senator´s increasingly cranky querulousness. Now it´s Reid outrageously suggesting that President Obama´s Republican critics disagree with him because he is black. Reid´s blatant attempt to cultivate racial division came during
Claiming that it has turned over “only a fraction” of the requested documents, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., sent a subpoena today to Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew regarding the 2009 taxpayer-funded $50 billion bailout of General Motors. “Taxpayers deserve the full truth about how decisions were made to use their money in an Administration effort that resulted in protecting generous pensions for unionized Delphi employees while greatly diminishing benefits for non-unionized employees,” Issa said in the letter. The chairman has been investigating the matter since 2010.
Over at the Long War Journal, Thomas Joscelyn and Bill Roggio confirm the report that the closings of more than 20 U.S. embassies earlier this week was the result of intercepted communications between al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri and several al Qaeda operatives. The story was first reported by Eli Lake and Josh Rogin at the Daily Beast, while Joscelyn and Roggio confirm with their own sources: Several US officials contacted by The Long War Journal have confirmed that the Zawahiri-led communication first reported by the Daily Beast did in fact occur.
At a White House press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama said that health insurance plans offered under Obamacare will be "significantly cheaper" than plans currently on the market, but a string of recent reports say that isn´t true. "What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn´t have health insurance, they´re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday suggested that labor unions critical of Obamacare should stop "frightening people" with their criticism of the law and how its implementation might hurt their members´ insurance. The Nevada Democrat also signaled his openness to employing the so-called nuclear option to change Senate rules to make it easier for President Obama´s judicial nominees to be confirmed, at least in regard to appointments to the circuit court bench. Meanwhile, Reid indicated he would oppose any move to reduce the roles government-owned mortgage buyers
During the Wednesday edition of his program, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, not known as any sort of conservative, attacked the government for being dishonest and witholding critical information from Americans while at the same time also undertaking highly invasive surveillance programs. “I don’t believe much of anything they say anymore. Because I can’t figure out which parts to believe, so I choose not to believe any of it,” Smith said in an interview with Fox News legal analyst Mercedes Colwin. Smith was keying off of a criticism that Colwin had made of the Obama Administration’s
With the news today that Megyn Kelly will reportedly be taking over Sean Hannity’s 9pm time slot this fall, the “recovering lawyer” who burst onto the scene with her two-hour daytime America Live show in 2010 has completed her ascent to the highest reaches of Fox News. Kelly’s hard-hitting often spicy news reporting has made her a perfect fit for Fox’s audience. Through fiery panel segments and breakout moments both on her show and elsewhere on Fox, Kelly has clearly proven herself worthy of the promotion. Whether you agree with her or not,
The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen. "My salesperson wanted to give her the handbag in her hand. But she didn´t want
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.
Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —
Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,
Retired 68-year-old US Army general and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley K. Clark has won yet another esteemed decoration — he is dating 30-year-old Shauna Mei, the founder of online retailer AHAlife.com. Clark, who was married to Gertrude Kingston Clark for 45 years before filing for divorce last year, is spending time with the young New York-based entrepreneur, who graduated from MIT and worked at Goldman Sachs as an investment banker before launching her luxury e-commerce site. Clark and Mei were spotted together recently in the Hamptons,
National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting. After four years, the much-vaunted reset in U.S.-Russian relations has devolved into a chilly standoff over issues like the Kremlin’s support for Syria
Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory." The proposed rule, disclosed last month by HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan at
In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted.. In closed door testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee, the unidentified IRS agent said requests for special tax status from Tea Party groups is being forced into a special "secondary screening" because
“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.
The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges. It should be little surprise then that the Lily Pond Lane home
You can get a deconstruction of the media at many places. The people who visit the Treehouse want to see the entire context; The entire truth, as it presents. So here we go…. In any endeavor of corruption and misleading governance, the control of, and support by, the media, is an absolute necessity. The USSR needed Pravda to keep the ruse of governance for decades. The need of/by the U.S. government has steadily grown over the course of several progressive decades; but the urgency has increased exponentially over the past five years with the extremes
WASHINGTON—The White House announced that President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, to 16 recipients including television star and businesswoman Oprah Winfrey, legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and former President Bill Clinton. “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours,” Mr. Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world.”
