Professor blames ‘southern white
radicals’ for Obamacare debacle

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 1/1/2014 11:16:45 AM

A professor who teaches constitutional law courses at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice penned a Christmas Day essay blaming “southern White radicals” for the disastrous, slow-motion train wreck failure that has been the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The essay, by Gloria J. Browne-Marshall at the website Politics in Color, is entitled “2013: A Year of Racial Challenges.” “[S]outhern White radicals vowed to stop implementation of the Obama-care law leading one to wonder if Tea Party members would oppose affordable healthcare if it came from a nonBlack [sic] President,”

Comments:
The most noteworthy aspect of the liberal mind is it´s complete inability for introspection and a fine tuned ability to project their own failures on others.
Yes, liberalism is a mental disorder.

Why are colleges, administrators, alumni, etc. totally embarrassed by these professors. I was so upset by my alma mater (U of Michigan) that I gave the last person to beg me for money a piece of my mind and subsequently throw all literature from them away.

I guess, parent either don´t know about these comments or agree with them, else why pay all that money to send your precious child into that pit.

I have here a definition of a southern white radical:

A Jewish woman, who is a fiscal conservative and wants to live in a country that spends less and taxes less; this allowing for citizens to keep more of their money, because they know how better to spend it than the government.

I have liberal friends and "discussions" on politics and policy always end the same way. They will say something they heard from whoever about Tea Party/Republican and state it as an obvious fact.

I have learned through time and frustration to cut through the all the inevitable back and forth to get to where the discussion/debate/argument always end: When facts are required to back up a statement or continue the argument.

I now ask "Do you have evidence to support what you are saying or are you just stating your opinion?" They usually get confused and try to move on to some other topic because 90% of the time they have never considered the evidence to support their opinion and fear being disproven. They rather live with ignorance.

I´m hyphenated to my husband. It was a business decision in my case, nothing more. Hyphenating names has been common practice in the UK for centuries, long before women were allowed to vote or inherit money.

However, if my hyphenated name had formed a well-known pair of initials like B-M, I would not have gone into hyphenation

Kindly do not lump us all with individuals like Ms. B-M.

It´s useless to simply stone the messenger, and there´s nothing inherently wrong with hyphenated last names. In addition to British tradition, sometimes women are just fond of their family names, havebusiness reasons, or want former associates to be able to find them. A male friend of mine, a college instructor & lib of course, reverse-hyphenated his last name to match that of his Japanese professor wife - which was a loving gesture in his case.

What´s alarming is the message, and it seriously needs to be addressed for the future of the country. I learned at my former place of work, a southern state agency where I was one of the only Caucasians in my unit, that the average black person (who is far below average in keeping up with politics, let alone getting the straight scoop, but who is now a voter thanks to their hero) does believe people oppose Obama because he is black and would fully swallow this woman´s premise. This needs to be combated, and the right needs to continue to try to reach out to the black community, and to stop being in denial of the racism within even vis-a-vis whatever racism exists on the other side. It is lousy karma and a factor in the loss of elections.

And oh by the way, in most cases it was the Arabs that gathered up the black slaves for their trip to America or the black conquerors of one tribe or another that sold the conquered ones as slaves.

I hate to draw this comparison but it does come to mind. All the problems in Germany, pre-WWII, were the fault of a minority ethnic group. Remember?

This time, the people pushing hatred are too dumb to realize that the minority they are blaming is not so small, so easily isolated that they can get away with the blaming.

And, thankfully, there´s the second amendment.

In other words, cow fartpacks are here.(snip)Here´s how the fartpacks work: tubes run from the backpack into the cows´ rumen (or biggest digestive tract). They extract about 300 liters of methane a day, which is enough to run a car or a fridge for about 24 hours.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe plans to announce today that he will shrink the time violent felons must wait to seek reinstatement of their voting rights and will remove some offenses from that list. The policy slated to take effect April 21 comes on top of years of work to streamline the process, and aims to make the system easier to understand and to allow more felons to petition the state more quickly. In a series of changes to the state´s restoration of rights process, McAuliffe plans to collapse the application waiting period from five to three years for people convicted of violent felonies

The two bombers who killed and maimed innocent people at the Boston marathon a year ago had come as refugees to America, from conflicts that America and her people did nothing to cause. They had been granted the privileges of a law-abiding democracy, including education, health care and the precious freedoms for which Americans have fought in two world wars. Their situation was incomparably better than it would have been, had they stayed behind in Chechnya. Among the many privileges that they enjoyed religious freedom was by no means the least important. They were able to attend their local mosque, to take part in its services and

The bombshell came as Goow, a former councilman and one of eight running for mayor in New Jersey´s third-largest city, lost a civil lawsuit in which he claimed Paterson police targeted him in an investigation for attempting to apprehend an suspected burglar in a high-speed chase in 2006, the paper reported. The city has paid nearly $500,000 defending itself from

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
