Conservative media´s total fixation on black-on-black and black-on-white crime isn´t going to end. Here´s why. There are a few black people up to no good in this country and Fox News is on it! So is Drudge Report. Vigilantly on the lookout, 24 hours a day, for stories about black youths behaving badly. This isn’t a particularly new phenomenon, but it’s intensified noticeably in the past year for at least two reasons. Conservatives, particularly white conservatives, feel a burning urgency to find a racial counterweight to the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s shooting (including President Obama’s public comments about the incident), a
Darn .. I so frown upon black youts behaving "badly" . Oh wow ..murder , death , killing is now just "bad " behavior ? miss Manners material ..not evil incarnate .. Ok ? This is dumbing down penultimate ..
My brain hurts after attempting to read this twisted logic ! I really do try to understand the reasoning that differentiates the thinking of liberals vs. conservatives. But this one is beyond me:
FTA "So let’s review: George Zimmerman wouldn’t have shot Trayvon Martin if he hadn’t been profiling by race." No, Mr. Beutler, George Zimmerman would not have shot Trayvon Martin if Trayvon Martin hadn´t been attempting to kill George Zimmerman.
I´ve tried, I´ve had it ... I give up. It is impossible to rationally explain liberal thinking and I´m not even going to try any longer.
No mention of Delbert Belton, the 5´ tall 88-year old WWII Vet who was bludgeoned to death by young black men. There were also school children beaten and robbed at their bus stop earlier this week in Gary IN (at 7AM!). Telling us not to notice isn´t going to work anymore.
Fox and Drudge don´t have to look too hard. Interesting that black on black crime is the norm and rampant, but the libs don´t care at all about that. Apparently most blacks don´t either, just worrying about what George Zimmerman is up to.
The right is obsessed with trying to understand why the left constantly denies the obvious. They deny that: *Blacks commit a disproportional amount of crime *Terrorists are mostly Islamic and are driven by their religion. *Christians are not terrorists. *The Tea Party does not consist of racists. *The Tea Party does not consist of terrorists. *High taxes retard business and lowers everyones standard of living. *Heavy regulation hurts small business, often helps big business, and lowers everyones standard of living. *More government is rarely the answer. *Free Market Capitalism creates the highest standard of living for everyone. *Communism lowers the standard of living while not resulting in everything being fairer *Communism always results in oppression and death no matter who´s in charge. *Nazi´s were left wing.
So, as the black community implodes, as black teen males gun each other down in a feral sense of masculinity, as the male role model is socially murdered by a government plantation system that destroys dignity and a sense of purpose, it is the "white obsession" with black crime that is the problem! There is little hope so long as Planned Parenthood continues to profit from the murder of black children. There is little hope so long as there are so few real men to raise the children who long for someone to show them how to be a man and a woman. There is little hope so long as the Feral Government continues to divide and destroy our national fabric.
White obsession? More like white grieving at the loss of so much potential. Grief at the destruction of so many futures. Sadness that, as our society has changed, the will of the power elite to reignite old hatreds and bitterness grows as they cling to power while the nation crumbles.
White man´s burden? No. It´s white man´s disappointment that all that has been won to the advantage of all is being destroyed for political convenience and the hope of a Progressive Third Reich that can rule for one thousand years.
The problem is that there is no shortage of stories about black youth behaving badly, you dont have to look long to find one. The Wilmington (De) News Journal refuses to identify criminals by their race because of the multitude of crimes committed by blacks. They are afraid of prejudicing their readership
More deception from a self-loathing, white-hating liberal. White America does NOT have to search to find a counterweight to the Zimmerman self-defense trial. Black-on-white violent crime is a daily reality that threatens the lives of non-privileged-race Americans. Salon is a propagandist organization whose purpose is to hide truth, to hide reality.
White America is under attack, and the media and the U.S. federal government supports the violence.
FTA: There are a few black people up to no good in this country and Fox News is on it!
One black male in three has a felony conviction during his lifetime. That´s not "a few."
A 75% illegitimacy rate currently [about]. That´s not "a few" making decisions highly-destructive to themselves and others, and often highly-expensive to honest taxpayers.
Brian, how´s about you get out more? Go where you can get some nice anecdotes about the rarity of black criminals? ´K?
[Well, after you go to legal zoom and write a will first, of course....]
#8, #13: IIRC, 2% +/- is about the actual percentage of the black males in the overall population who commit that wildly-disproportionate number of murders.
So what do the numbers have to be before: a. the problem is generally acknowledged? and b. appropriately-serious measures are taken to stop these murders and other crimes?
"[E]vils which are not cured in one way will cure themselves in another." ~~ Thomas Jefferson
If the gov´t continues not simply to fail to protect us, but to seize more and more of our money to pay for programs that create and exacerbate and protect a lawless, often feral, predatory, evil, parasitic segment of the population, at some point there will be push-back.
When you refer to the carnage of black-on-black violence and the sharp increase in black-on-white violence as "black youths behaving badly", you are exposing your racist attitude of lowered expectations for blacks in a civilized society. And since blacks generations ago got a raw deal, liberals must give them "slack" in perpetuity if they are to feel good about themselves. The solution is to force liberal fools such as Beutler to live in black violence-filled neighborhoods indefinitely until they themselves are victims of such violence, or until they "get it".
As usual, a liberal lapdog misses the point. Conservatives aren´t looking for black-on-white crime, we´re ticked off because the left has an obsession with white-on-black crime to the point they race-bait and manufacture incidents to promote their agenda.
At the same time they ignore black on white crime and black on black crime because it doesn´t fit their narrative.
However, what´s really at issue here is that the black community, who MLK prayed to be accepted as equals by the majority is so rapidly alienating everyone with the high percentage of truly horrific immorality, that many begin to wish them gone - which I think is the intent...
I think the Democrats are still nursing their KKK-like hatred for their former slaves and are hoping to treat them the way the Palestinians would like to treat the Jews.
This idiot is hacked off because word is getting out that blacks aren´t the victimized saints that the left paints them to be.
Most of the stories about black crime is to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of the left and media and what they get roiled about.Crime is just a symptom of a bigger disease called the welfare state but don´t expect the left to recognize that.You have rich trust fund brats who´s behavior is just as bad but they can afford it to do it in style.
Obama´s war on the job construction in this country has overridden people´s desire to get ahead.It´s showing up with young whites,so it has to be even worse for blacks,who will never see a job while Obama´s president.
When blacks go to a shooting range they put their own feet up as a target.Their attacking white people will cause even more to lose jobs because most employers are white.Small business simply can´t afford to hire walking lawsuit cases either.
Sophistry like this is necessary to protect and sustain Leftist fantasy ideology with its demonology of white racism.
The fundamental problem for Leftists is reality. Another word for reality is truth. Leftist fantasy ideology attempts to substitute private political beliefs for reality and truth - with predictable results. There is always friction, churn, dissonance, contradiction etc. that Leftist ideologues must somehow account for and explain away in order to preserve their private illusions.
This piece is a good example of the remarkable lengths to which a victim of Leftist fantasy ideology is prepared to go to avoid confronting reality. The writer has thrown up a great cloud of smoke to complicate and obscure something that is actually very simple and obvious - in fact, too simple and obvious. Hence the need to work so hard to sow confusion and perplexity where none need exist.
Leftists believe they are the only ones allowed to talk about race and that talking about race means sanctifying black victims and demonizing white oppressors. That is what a Leftist means by "a conversation about race." Anything else, especially anything that implicates blacks as responsible perpetrators, is verboten.
Brian Beutler, of The Media Consortium, was an identified member of JournoList - an email group of approximately 400 "progressive" and socialist journalists, academics and "new media" activists.
JournoList members reportedly coordinated their messages in favor of Barack Obama and the Democrats, and against Sarah Palin and the Republican Party. JournoList was founded in 2007 and was closed down in early 2010. "
President Obama has found someone to blame for the Affordable Care Act´s rolling failures besides Republicans. ObamaCare is the government´s fault, not his. On Thursday, Mr. Obama dropped by American University for a heart to heart with Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout. Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government," but he then drifted into another classic. "The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House
Jobs Report: November´s numbers were stronger than expected, a phrase rarely uttered since this president took the economic reins. But while a bigger number is always better, one good month now and then won´t cut it. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 203,000 jobs in November, 196,000 of which were in the private sector. Now at 7%, the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level in five years. What´s more, unlike in previous months, the rate´s drop came from gains in employment, not from people dropping out of the labor force. The labor force participation rate actually
Executive Orders: A liberal constitutional scholar warns of the concentration of power not only in the hands of one branch of government but in a single man who ignores the Constitution and acts of Congress on a whim. As the story goes, Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on Sept. 18, 1787, when a woman asked, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin is said to have replied, "A republic, madam — if you can keep it." The Founders designed a system of checks and balances among three
Most presidents have politically troublesome relatives: Jimmy Carter had colorful brother Billy, Bill Clinton had brother Roger, and the George Bushes had son/brother Neil, who was involved in both the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s and Asian "sex romps" that emerged in a messy 2003 divorce. Obama has a passel of half-siblings, but his requisite nettlesome relative may turn out to be an uncle, Onyango (Omar) Obama. In August 2011, Uncle Omar was pulled over in Framingham, Mass., for driving under the influence. His arrest revealed both several outstanding orders for his deportation and his relationship to the
RUSH: Here is Wolf Blitzer. Last night on The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer had in Fareed Zakaria GPS. I guess Fareed had his location device with him. He calls himself "Fareed Zakaria GPS." When you´re with him, I guess, you always know where you are. And they´re talking about the impact of the passing of Nelson Mandela, and this is classic. Listen to Wolf here... BLITZER: Is it overly naive to hope and pray that maybe the death of Nelson Mandela will inspire some of those world leaders out there right now to do the right thing, to recognize that bloodshed and
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
RUSH: We mentioned earlier that Obama didn´t know that Obama was living with his uncle, who happened to be an illegal alien at the time. Here´s Jay Carney. This is yesterday afternoon in Washington the White House at the daily briefing. Ed Henry, the Fox News White House correspondent, said, "The White House said that in 2011, that there was no record of Obama and his uncle, Omar Obama, ever meeting. Now the Boston Globe is being told by the White House -- and I assume you can elaborate here, Jay -- that, in fact, they not only met, but
One consequence of the botched launch of Obamacare is that it has, judging from his plummeting numbers with “millennials,” diminished Barack Obama’s cool. It’s not merely that the website isn’t state-of-the-art, but that the art it’s flailing to be state of is that of the mid-20th century social program. The emperor has hipster garb, but underneath he’s just another Commissar Squaresville. So, health care being an irredeemable downer for the foreseeable future, this week the president pivoted (as they say) to “economic inequality,” which will be, he assures us, his principal focus for the rest of his term. And what’s
This column has made the point before that there are three phases of the ObamaCare catastrophe. Phase 1, the technical failure, might have been avoided had the administration had some basic standards of competence. But Phases 2 and 3 are inherent in the law. Phase 2 was the revelation that the ObamaCare enterprise is the most massive consumer fraud in American history--that the "if you like your plan, you can keep it" sales pitch was not only false but deliberately deceptive, and also that ObamaCare forces insurance companies to engage in dishonest practices such as selling maternity coverage to men and
RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, you can´t escape the media and what´s going on here, and it´s all very predictable. If you just landed from Mars and turned on the TV, you may be confused over who was Barack Obama and who was Nelson Mandela, based on the way it´s being covered. Well, I´m just telling you. The Washington press corps and even the White House are moving here at full speed to associate Barack Obama with Nelson Mandela. Here, grab number three. This just gives you a taste of it here. This is Scott Pelley on the CBS Evening
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Incompetence: Mr. President, you might not remember her, but Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is the one running the disastrous ObamaCare launch. You once met her. You two should get acquainted. Jimmy Carter was the most infamous micro-manager to be president, pestering commanders of the ill-fated 1980 Iran hostage rescue mission by two-way radio, and personally reviewing White House tennis court schedules. As to the opposite, Ronald Reagan was relentlessly accused of being out of touch. "Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don´t interfere as long as the policy you´ve decided upon is being carried
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
