Let’s hope the Boston Marathon
bomber is a white American

SALON, by David Sirota

Original Article

Posted By:STLstudent, 4/17/2013 7:38:32 AM

As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

Comments:
The Diversity Cult has taken such control in America that it is acceptable to hope the Boston Marathon bomber is "white." There is a perverse and vile worldview that has taken hold in this country. It now dominates our schools, government, media, and collective everyday thought. How long will we allow "diversity" to pervert our nation?

Sirota reminds me of the teacher in American public schools who recently made white students wear white wristbands to remind them of their "privileged" place in American society. There is a concerted effort to marginalize white Americans, especially white males, in order to Alinsky-ize them, to relegate them to slavery to "get even", as Obama said.

That Sirota finds no irony in his comment:

However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.

He wants white men "collectively targeted" when there is little evidence that they, as a group, did nothing wrong? How is that sane or rational?

I think the American Left has lost its hateful, collective mind.

This kind of thinking(!) is the product of years of systematic educational malpractice for which it is tempting to blame the unfortunate author of this remarkably confused piece. It is however not his fault - certainly not wholly. He has been exposed from his earliest life to propaganda and Leftist ideology and cant, e.g. "privilege," a classic ideological shibboleth. He has been deliberately denied extensive exposure to the Western Canon and the classics of Western civilization. What he does not know about history would fill the library of ALexandia. He is under the impression that his personal political opinions -which he has simply absorbed from the lifelong process of indoctrination to which he has been subjected- are self-evident and irrefutable truths with which no sane, decent, honest person could possibly disagree. He is so unconscious of his personal bias that he does not even realize the implications of his publicized wish that the Boston murderer is a white American. And nothing, absolutely nothing, will ever change his mind, which has long since been sealed and welded shut by those to whom his education was entrusted and who have betrayed their responsibility not only to their students but to the very truth itself. William J. Ayers is the post child for this wicked scheme - but there are others.

The author is brain dead and dangerous.

Just glance on any given day across the Mideast and you will see dozens of mass protests calling for the killing of Americans and the destruction of the US.

Just glance at the history of terrorist acts and you will see scores of them committed by Arabs and Persians, most backed by powerful mosques or governments, juxtaposed to maybe two acts by white Americans, none backed by any group and without thousands protesting in advance on the day of the act.

This journalist is certainly hopeless, but dangerous in his thinking. He sees everything through the progressive lens, and starts and ends with race. Yet he would be first to both call others racist and deny that he, himself, is one. "You´re white, so you´re a racist". Ugh.

Every problem in the world today is blamed on white males. A poster yesterday predicted that only way this is going to end is with another Civil War. I used to scoff at such postings but no longer. The left is destroying this country teaching, thinking and believing such crazy crap as " white privilege" and "white male privilege". With Rubio and the GOP elites supporting amnesty, gay marriage, Obamacare and gun control I now believe the country will be torn in two once again. Exercise your 2nd Amendment rights before a flash mob of leftists takes everything you have.

Nobody ever mentions the Occupy Movement - they wanted to blow up a bridge near me. If it isn´t a jihadi (and I´d bet it is), then looking to the radicals on the left makes the most sense.

I think white men get the shaft way too much. Without white men, this country would be absolutely NOTHING! With exceptions of course, most work very hard, and get blamed for everything. They are disrespected and accused of mysogeny, greed, and discrimination against everything they aren´t. It is unfair, but these men cannot complain without becoming targets. I would like to thank all the upstanding hardworking white men out there that are unable to defend themselves against a tsunami of hate and blame.

I am a woman, BTW, but I have a son and already I see how some will treat him.

What they meant was, "Let´s hope the bomber is a white, conservative male who is a member of the TEA Party or the NRA."

How the hell do you ´hope´ a bomber is one thing or another? Obviously, they care more for political advantage over the lives lost or harmed. It makes one speculate as to whether the Left would engineer such a disaster - a sort of modern ´Reichstag Moment´ so they can justify attaining their agenda? Almost without exception, every other domestic terrorist that has come down the pike has been liberal, and I include the OKC bomber in that as well.

The militia the Left tried to make his ´accomplices´ had long before kicked him out as a nutcase, and wouldn´t have anything to do with him.

The only people we should remove from guns, or power are Liberals, who consistently show they are incapable of responsibly interacting in these areas.

So Mr. Sirota thinks that as a group white men are not publicly denegrated. Well, then assuming he is white he must not be:
Conservative
Christian either Catholic nor Evangelical Protestant
A Veteran
A member of a trade union
A graduate of a Land Grant University
A member of the NRA
Straight
Not divorced

Membership in any one of the above will subject you to ridicule from some segment of the Liberal Aristocracy. Three or more associations and Mr. Sirota would personally present you with your new ´Knuckle Dragging Neanderthal´ card.

This writer has some sort of mental problem beyond just being incredibly ignorant. Homeland security just got white veterans, Christians, and gun owners described as possible terrorists and a threat to the USA. They now have great big targets on their backs, thanks to muslim denying ignorant trash like this.

The author is doing exactly what he claims to want to prevent. He is profiling a segment of the American population. He judges us by the external characteristics of our skin color and our country of origin.

Mr. Sirota: we are not Czarist Russians. We have come from many places to escape many terrible things. We are all immigrants. Honor the struggles of your ancestors by being a little kinder.

This is the same lefty mindset that told us George Zimmerman was a white guy who murdered an innocent black ´boy´.

When the facts don´t match their preset worldview, they simply change the facts. Thus Zimmerman is white, Martin was ´just a young, innocent A-A boy´. Neither of these is true.

He knows the consequences that will result when the truth is revealed. This cannot be swept under the rug like Bengazi, so the Administration and DHS will be exposed as the incompetent leaders they are.

It is difficult to imagine how this author could be more wrong. It is best illustrated by the photos of McVeigh and Bin Laden at the beginning. McVeigh is the sole example of domestic white male terrorism. According to the left he acted alone but there is strong suspicion or even proof on the right that he had help from a middle eastern accomplice. McVeigh was executed long ago. An individual cannot mount the same threat as an alien organized "religion" Bin Laden is dead but his followers are still a threat. Take McVeigh and Bin Laden off the list and there are no examples of domestic white terrorism and plenty of examples of Islamic terrorism.

A snowstorm in the South is about as rare as a glass of unsweetened tea at a church supper. Folks around Birmingham, Ala. weren’t all that worried though. The storm was only supposed to dust the city – not even enough powder for a Southern snowman. But a good number of those stranded motorists were able to find shelter in the storm thanks to the kindness and generosity of Chick-fil-A restaurant employees and the restaurant´s owner, Mark Meadows.

Record High in U.S. Say
Big Government Greatest Threat
Gallup Politics, by Jeffrey M. Jones    Original Article
Posted By: STLstudent- 12/18/2013 6:16:55 PM     Post Reply
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time. The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today.

Barack Obama´s foreign policy dream -- cordial relations with a Middle East tranquilized by "smart diplomacy" -- is in a death grapple with reality. His rhetorical writhings illustrate the perils of loquacity. He has a glutton´s rather than a gourmet´s appetite for his own rhetorical cuisine, and has talked America to the precipice of a fourth military intervention in the crescent that extends from Libya to Afghanistan. Characterizing the 2011 Libyan project with weirdly passive syntax ("It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions"),

Pope Francis has attacked the “dictatorship” of the global financial system and warned that the “cult of money” was making life a misery for millions. He said free-market capitalism had created a “tyranny” and that human beings were being judged purely by their ability to consume goods. Money should be made to “serve” people, not to “rule” them, he said, calling for a more ethical financial system and curbs on financial speculation. Countries should impose more control over their economies and not allow “absolute autonomy”, in order to provide “for the common good”.

Independent study raises the bar for
border security, immigration reform
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

The yardstick used in the immigration bill to determine border control may produce too rosy a picture of how well the Border Patrol is doing in cracking down on illegal crossings, according to an independent study released Monday that threatens to upend the immigration debate. In their 76-page report, three researchers at the Council on Foreign Relations also said the drop in illegal immigration is only partly a result of tougher border security and about two-thirds because of economic changes in Mexico and the U.S. that have made it less attractive for Mexicans to migrate north.

As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
