Is there a more intellectually vacuous venture than obsessing over skin color?

Roland Martin is a sad case, so hooked on racializing everything as if skin color is the most important thing about everyone, even Santa Claus

Via CNS News:

“News One Now” host Roland Martin said Friday on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” that Fox News’ Megyn Kelly’s remark that Santa Claus and Jesus are white reinforced to black and Hispanic kids that they live in a “white world,” and they don’t matter.

“Doesn’t it just reinforce though to your point growing up as a child, you seeing these images, it reinforces where for black kids and Hispanic kids, it’s, ‘Look, accept that this is a white, white world and you don’t matter,’” Martin asked Slate writer Aisha Harris, author of the article, “Santa Should Not Be a White Man Anymore.”

Kelly did a segment about Harris’ Slate article, which challenged the notion of Santa being white. Harris wrote about growing up with images of a black Santa on Christmas decorations at home while the public celebrated a white Santa.

Roland you silly bastard,  if you were not suffering from Racial Obsession Syndrome (ROS) it might dawn on you that if racist victim mongers like you would leave kids alone, and stop filling their heads with your divisive venom, they would look at Santa, and just enjoy being a kid at Christmas. Certainly I pity you Roland that you were obviously victimized by race baiters as a child. Sad that you have grown up continuing to see your race as the most important thing about you. Get the fuck over yourself and your pigmentation Roland. For the love of God, stop making skin color something it is not, important. Character Roland, THAT matters. Integrity, THAT matters! Skin color? that DOES NOT matter! And guess what Roland, you know what the saddest thing is? If you read this you would call me racist for saying that skin color is unimportant. You would do so because you have been conditioned by Leftism to do so. Again, it is tragic that you are just not bright enough to see through the lies the left has told you.

By the way Roland, I should point out that Santa Claus is based on Saint Nicholas who was WHITE! Not that that matters. Because in my world, I can admire people regardless of skin color, it is sad that you cannot. It must be a very dark, ugly world where you live, I pray that you get over your obsession with skin color one day. You would likely be a nice man were you to see people as something other than skin color.

 

 

Left-Wing Media Matters for America declares victory over Fox News

Stacy McCain points out some facts about Fox News after Media Matters for Marxists Against America declares that they have discredited Fox

This is analogous to the problem of conservatives making Fox News a singular focus of efforts to combat liberal media bias. As early as February 2009, I described what I called “The Fox Trap”:

Media-wise, the GOP made the mistake of putting all its eggs in one basket. I enjoy Fox News, but it has created a syndrome where Republicans watch Fox all the time and delude themselves into thinking, “Hey, our message is getting out! We’re winning!” Fact: The evening news broadcasts of ABC, NBC and CBS reach a combined audience of about 22 million; the top rated Fox News show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” reaches 4 million viewers. So if the three broadcast networks are viciously biased against Republicans – and they are – then that anti-GOP message is reaching more than 5 times as many TV viewers as Fox.

Last week, I described the problem again with updated numbers:

[D]uring the Bush presidency, the Left created institutions (notably Media Matters) based on the dubious theory that Fox News and other conservative media had too much influence.
That theory cannot be reconciled with the facts:

NBC Nightly News  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9.3 million
ABC World News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8.2 million
CBS Evening News . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7.3 million
Fox News (The O’Reilly Factor) . . . . . . . . . . . 3.2 million
MSNBC (Hardball with Chris Matthews) . . . . . 940,000
CNN (Anderson Cooper 360) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 605,000

Fox News is, as it proudly boasts, Number One in Cable News, accounting for 68% of the cable news audience. Add in the major network evening news broadcasts, however, and the total news audience is closer to 30 million, of which Fox’s share is about 11%.
In other words, 89% of news on TV is reliably liberal in its perspective, and the Left’s obsession with Fox News is absurd. Why should Media Matters have an annual budget of $10 million to counteract the influence of a network that gets 11% of the news audience?

We could discuss at length the ramifications of this data, but the point to be made immediately is that Fox News has functioned like a channelizing terrain feature in the informational battlefield. For the defenders of liberal media hegemony, all they had to do was to isolate Fox — identify it as a hostile force in the eyes of other media — and then to target both the network’s messages and its messengers.

Some very good points raised there. Fox has not influenced the rest of the media to change their game. Instead they have just been pigeon-holed as “Right Wing” by the Left, and to many, many Americans, who get their news from NBC, CBS, and ABC, well, Fox has a, shall we say tarnished reputation. In short, we cannot just rely on Fox News folks. Or on talk radio, which also has been smeared mightily by the Left, or on blogs, which have also been smeared and marginalized by “real journalists”. Stacy McCain sums it up very well

Andrew Breitbart understood this tactic, and fought very hard to escape the “Fox Trap,” which is why he delivered one of his biggest scoops on the WeinerGate scandal — the Meagan Broussard story, which confirmed that Weiner was “sexting” with multiple women — directly to ABC News as an exclusive. If conservative messages and messengers can be limited to one media channel, and that channel reaches no more than a minor fraction of the total news audience, liberals win. It’s really that simple

Bingo!

 

 

Knockout Game does not fit the race pimp’s narrative, so……….

Allen West nails it, and yes I have said this months ago. These knockout games, and other Black on White violent attacks do not fit the narrative of the Left, but the first time someone with a concealed weapon fights back, the race pimps will leap with both feet! Video at the link, 

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: ON THE RECORD has been reporting on these violent attacks all week but few community leaders and few in the media are willing to talk about it. As we talk about this spreading crime, take a look of a few of the attacks caught on camera so you know what to look out for.

Congressman West, this horrible game, you know, first of all, it’s a group of people — a gang might not be the right word. And after it’s done, everybody laughs at doing it as the victim is lying there suffering. In some instances, even murder. But the question of race. Frankly, so far, it’s been African-Americans, as far as I can see, on whites. I don’t know if it’s completely that way but that’s what we have seen.

WEST: That’s true. That’s exactly what you are seeing. This talks of the state of depravity that is in the black community right now. Again, where are these black leaders that should be talking about this breakdown? Where are the parents? Where are the guardians of the black community to say this is unacceptable behavior?

Now, this is what is going to end up happening. At some point in time, one of the people that’s going to be attacked is going to have a concealed weapons license. They are going to draw down and, unfortunately, someone is going to get shot. Then what is going to happen? You will hear all of the rhetoric coming out from the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons that this unarmed black teenager was shot and killed and assaulted, when right now they should be out there stopping this so we don’t get to this point.

VAN SUSTEREN: They have been silent. And the president, attorney general also role models in the African-American community, but one –

(CROSSTALK)

WEST: This doesn’t fit their political narrative.

VAN SUSTEREN: Obviously, the ones who do it, they’re criminals, arrest them, process them or whatever. Those who laugh may be aiders and abettors, has encouraging them, deal with them, too.

The thing that concerns me, a lot of these communities have 12 and 13- year-olds who look up to older people in the community. There is always the peer pressure. If we don’t stop this now — sort of immaturity of a 13-year-old — is a 13-year-old going to follow suit and do something really stupid, have the person die or end up in prison, and no one is speaking out to try to stop this now.

WEST: Well, you have already seen this happen. Think about down in Brunswick, Georgia, where the two black teenagers shot the white baby in the face. And so now that’s, again, a life that has been lost because no one intervened and no one tried to get in those communities. You have got a breakdown. It’s not just the family. It’s the education opportunities, job opportunities. We should not have these roving gangs out there saying, we are going to knock someone out just for fun. They should be studying.

VAN SUSTEREN: One attacker, I should tell you, in Michigan, was shot. So we are seeing a little bit of that already.

What should President Obama do, if anything? I mean, is there anything? Would making a statement or putting this out as public dialogue, would that help?

WEST: It would help. You can’t just cherry-pick when you go in to intervene. You can’t look at the Skip Gates issue and say the police officers up there –

VAN SUSTEREN: Harvard.

WEST: Absolutely. Acted stupidly. You can’t jump in and say Trayvon Martin, or it could have been me or it could have been my son. Then you have these instances where you just complete (INAUDIBLE). I think this is an opportunity for him to show some leadership. But once again, it doesn’t fit that political narrative.

VAN SUSTEREN: How about Jesse Jackson and Reverend Sharpton? They can certainly draw attention. They can draw attention toward important issues. Why are they silent?

WEST: There’s no profit in it for them. There’s no political gain or political advantage for them. So why –

VAN SUSTEREN: How about helping these neighborhoods? This is terrorizing some of the inner-city neighborhoods.

WEST: They don’t care. They live off victimization. Therefore, as long as you have black communities that see themselves as victims, that helps to perpetuate their existence. Now, all of a sudden, if you jump in — why aren’t they saying anything in Chicago about the black-on-black crime? They don’t have a point in that. It doesn’t elevate them whatsoever. That’s why these guys should be totally irrelevant and should not be listened to whatsoever

West also makes a great point about the victim mentality that is helping destroy the Black community. It is truly despicable what the Left has done, and is still doing to Blacks in America. Jackson, Sharpton and much of the NAACP leadership give not the first damn about Black Americans. They care about getting richer, and that is it. In short these “leaders” are about the lowest form of life I can imagine. Talk about racists!

Shep Smith is Gay? Yeah, we knew that

RS McCain has the news, which is shocking, but not because Smith is Gay

So, no, it’s not “news” that Shep Smith is gay.

What is news is that a reasonably attractive 26-year-old guy named Giovanni “Gio” Graziano was willing to have intimate contact with that scrawny orange-skinned 49-year-old anchor-thing.

All together now: Eee-eww, gross!

It’s not necessarily homophobia to feel an overpowering sense of nausea at the mental image of Shep’s squealing paroxysms of erotic ecstasy while getting sodomized by his studly boy toy.

Our deepest sympathy to the Graziano family.

Frankly, I never thought, or cared about Shep’s proclivities. That is his business, and believe me I do NOT want to know, but it is funny to listen to Liberals rant as if a Gay Fox anchor somehow defeats Conservatism. Of course now that we “know” how far away is a Shep Smith sex tape?

Yeah, about that whole “Conservatives hate science” thing

It seems that a Yale professor did a study about political outlooks and science comprehension, you know, the kind of study snotty, self-assured Liberals love to quote. Well, it turns out that Tea Party people, who are CONSERVATIVES for the most part, have a better knowledge of science. H’T Fritz

And more shockingly, admits it.

Because the “asymmetry thesis” just won’t leave me alone, I decided it would be sort of interesting to see what the relationship was between a “science comprehension” scale I’ve been developing and political outlooks…

It turns out that there is about as strong a correlation between scores on the science comprehension scale and identifying with the Tea Party as there is between scores on the science comprehension scale and Conservrepub. 

Except that it has the opposite sign: that is, identifying with the Tea Party correlates positively (r = 0.05, p = 0.05) with scores on the science comprehension measure:

The professor shows signs of an open mind, which is good, of course he is not climbing out of his Liberal closet just yet

I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.

But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the “paper” (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico). 

I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.

 But not really embarrassed enough to reconsider his other biases…

Of course, I still subscribe to my various political and moral assessments–all very negative– of what I understand the “Tea Party movement” to stand for. I just no longer assume that the people who happen to hold those values are less likely than people who share my political outlooks to have acquired the sorts of knowledge and dispositions that a decent science comprehension scale measures.

Baby steps professor, baby steps

 

 

We need more people like this in America

Restaurant owner Glenn Helseth has been ordered by the National Park Service to close his establishment in Yorktown, Va., due to the government shutdown.

He tells Fox News’ Todd Starnes he has no intention to comply. “I am now occupying the building at this time,” he said.

Helseth and his wife have operated the Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant inside the historic Cole Digges House in Yorktown for the last 11 years. The Park Service apparently owns the building and ordered the couple to get out within 48 hours after the government shutdown went into effect.

“The couple also owns a restaurant on Jamestown Island. They had to close that restaurant after the National Park Service blocked access to the island,” Starnes reports.

With at least 20 of his employees facing unemployment, Helseth made the decision to intentionally defy the federal government and open his restaurant 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Plus, the building may be closed, but he still has to pay insurance, utilities, rent and the building’s security system.

“I’m serving Brunswick stew, ham biscuits and carrot cake,” he said. “If that gets me put in jail, I’m going to jail,” he said.

“I don’t wish to take a stand against my government,” he later added. “I’ve always been very proud of my country. [But] I don’t agree with what’s happening. I can no longer abide by what’s happening.”

He also told members of Congress they can be the ones to tell his employees that they no longer have a job because America’s lawmakers can’t “administrate.”

God bless him. As I said we need more like him. I think we all agree that the manner in which this shut down of 17% of the government has been handled is asinine. The president is using this as a tool for political gain. He has chosen to punish the people rather than to delay his precious health care bill,even though it is clearly not ready to take effect. Not to mention that a majority of Americans DO NOT WANT this bill to take full effect. For the president, and for Democrats, getting control of every American’s health care, and thus every American’s income, is the goal here! That is why President Obama has refused to bend or negotiate. that is why Senator Reid has done the same. They want to blame Republicans, and they want, again, this cannot be stressed enough, to get Obama Care implemented in order to control our health care, our money, and our lives!

And, you might be surprised at how many Americans are wise to the Democrat’s political games

Dear Leader closes Grand Canyon, refuses to reopen it after Arizona offers to pay

Denying Americans entry into National Parks to score political points

Via Fox News:

With the partial suspension of U.S. government services showing no signs of ending, tourists will continue to be turned away from the Grand Canyon, despite a push by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and local businesses to reopen the state’s signature national park.

Brewer wants the iconic park reopened and has offered to pay for it with state money, but her proposal was rejected Thursday by a park official who said that as long as the federal government remains shut down, such a plan isn’t an option.

“I appreciate the support and I thanked them for the offer, but it’s not an offer we can accept,” said park superintendent Dave Uberuaga.

About 2,200 people who work at the Grand Canyon National Park and its hotels have been furloughed as a result of the government slimdown that began Tuesday. “And that’s not counting the economic impact in the gateway communities, all of the related businesses, the bus tours, hiking companies, the jeep tours, all of those associated functions are suffering economically as well,” Uberuaga said.

Many of those businesses also have offered to chip in to pay to reopen the park.

All about inflicting as much pain as possible to score political points. But, as I have said I believe the Liberals are over playing their hand. Their rhetoric and tactics are getting harsher, which means they do not think they are winning this public image battle. This poll at Weasel Zippers backs me up

Honestly, who did not see this coming? School asks police officer not to pick his daughter up while in uniform

We can expect more of this because the absurdity of Leftism is absolutely limitless

Via Fox News:

A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a gun, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.

Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. The department told him not to comment to media inquiries, but immediately after he received the no-uniform request, he posted on Facebook.

“Nothing like your kids school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling them there was a man at school with a gun, “ he posted. “Are you freaking kidding me?”

It has come to this, but the school, in true Leftist fashion, wants to make this into a teachable moment

Meanwhile, school officials’ initial reaction was to ask the officer not to wear his gun and uniform to school, they are now saying they want to turn this incident into “a teachable moment.”

Really? I doubt these Moonbat knuckle draggers can brush their teeth without written instructions. Teaching is not their thing, indoctrination and fear mongering are their strong suits, and job #1 is to demonize guns and anyone who has one, even the police apparently. 

 

Why Fox News prime time lineup sucks

Just three words tell you why I put that headline up. NO RED EYE! COME ON Fox! Apparently their ratings among 25-54 year-olds has fallen. Featuring Megyn Kelly seems to be their strategy to fix that. I would argue Red Eye would be a better choice. Gutfeld is hilarious, and his guests usually include an attractive woman. See eye candy, humor, political debate, AND entertainment. The only problem with red Eye is that moron Bill Schulz, good Lord what a beating he is, so I would add another guest in his place.

Liberals celebrate idiocy, hail noted moron Brian Beutler

Stacy McCain sums up salon writer Beutler, and his column of lies to perfection

Brian Beutler is hailed by his fellow liberals as a genius — a man of brilliant insight — for exactly one reason: He is a liberal.

And he expects us lowly mortals to be impressed.

Here is more from The Other McCain I am giving you almost the entire fisking McCain does on Bong Boy Beutler because, well it is dead on, funny, and well worth your read.

The right’s black crime obsession

Conservative media’s total fixation on black-on-black
and black-on-white crime isn’t going to end. Here’s why

(We may derive the intent from the headline: “The right” is conflated with “Conservative media,” because everyone who votes Republican does so because Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh have told them to. This is therefore the umpteenth journalistic reiteration of the Media Matters daily mantra about the illegitimacy of conservative media.)

BY BRIAN BEUTLER

(Prepare for deliberate dishonesty.)

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.

(Didn’t I warn you? Beutler starts lying right off the bat, assuming a liberal readership who never actually watch Fox News and who are too lazy even to bother checking the Drudge Report.)

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 logical response to the argument that things like background checks and an assault weapons ban are appropriate ways to reduce the likelihood of another Sandy Hook-style massacre, and anecdotal justifications for indiscriminate policing of dangerous neighborhoods.

(This has “intensified noticeably in the past year,” which means since August 2012. Is it true that “white conservatives” actually do feel the “burning urgency” Beutler attributes to them? Or is this just another tendentious assertion he pulled out of his ass? Certainly I feel no such urgency, but maybe someone else does.)

But these are hopeless pursuits. The incidents they draw attention to fail by definition to underscore the things they believe. They all require projecting motives or details or both into tragic events, to create false dichotomies between shootings perpetrated by whites and blacks. They have the unhealthy effect of creating dueling tallies of white-on-black and black-on-white crime. And ironically they all tend to underscore the argument that more “stand your ground” laws and more racial profiling are off-point responses to these incidents.

(Do you see how this is going to go? Brian Beutler asserts that conservatives hold certain beliefs, and then asserts that facts don’t support those beliefs. And notice Brian Beutler says conservatives are “projecting motives,” which Brian Beutler never does!)

The latest conservative cri de coeur is over the tragic shooting death of Chris Lane, a 22-year-old Australian attending East Central University in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship. Two teen boys spotted Lane on a jog last week, trailed him in a car, and allegedly shot him fatally in the back (a third teen reportedly served as their driver). One of the suspects said the boys committed the murder out of boredom.

(This is merely the “latest” such incident — i.e., in which conservatives are alleged to have done what Brian Beutler says they do — but what was the one before Chris Lane? I don’t remember it, but maybe Brian Beutler could, if he chose, rattle off a long list of incidents like this which, so he says, “conservative media” have hyped for the reasons that he says they’re hyping such incidents. He doesn’t actually provide a list, however, so readers are supposed to take Brian Beutler’s word that this is actually a phenomenon.)

Word of the shooting spread quickly. And that’s when the right clumsily revealed that its obsession with gun violence reflects an obsession with racial score settling rather than with averting further tragedies. The conservative media, including Fox News, repeated the claim that the Oklahoma suspects were all black. But this turned out to be a toxic mix of racial bias and wishful thinking. You almost wonder whether the people whose ulterior motives led them into error like this actually lamented the fact that one of the suspects happened to be white. It would be so much more convenient if that weren’t the case.

(When did Fox News, or anyone else, do what Brian Beutler says they did, claiming that the “suspects were all black”? I mean, maybe they did — I haven’t paid any attention to this story — although I don’t see Beutler linking to a source, or quoting anyone. But once again, Beutler assumes a liberal readership that never watches Fox News, so he could say anything about the network’s programming and his ignorant readers would have no choice but to accept his assertions.)

But let’s pretend for a minute that the suspects had all fit the stereotype the hosts at Fox and Friends wanted. Then the idea is that Chris Lane’s death should somehow offset Trayvon Martin’s, or that the people who sought to turn George Zimmerman’s actions into a national referendum on “stand your ground” laws are somehow hypocritical for having little to say when the races of the culprits and innocent victims are reversed. For reactionary Obama foes like former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., the obvious question is, “Whom will POTUS identify w/this time?”

(The link to the Tweet by Allen West is THE ONLY LINK IN THIS ENTIRE COLUMN. Isn’t Salon.com, y’know, one of those Internet kind of things, where political bloggers routinely link to their sources, so as not to give the appearance that they’re just pulling stuff out of their ass or, as some call it, “doing a Beutler”?)

I’ll give West, et al., this: If you ignore motive, circumstance, history and (likely ) outcome, then liberals, particularly black liberals, sure seem craven. By that standard, though, Jean Valjean and John, King of England are moral equals — just a couple of guy s with similar names taking other people’s property.

(Does that paragraph mean anything? Anything at all?)

So let’s review: George Zimmerman wouldn’t have shot Trayvon Martin if he hadn’t been profiling by race. And even if he had been, the shooting feasibly wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t been legally allowed to carry a handgun and didn’t think he was empowered by law to take matters into his own hands. The monstrous killing of Chris Lane has no such back story. The killers apparently had no motive whatsoever, were armed illegally, and certainly weren’t trailing Lane because they believed, based on his race, that he might be a criminal. They are, however, likely to face serious prison time for their crimes. Zimmerman walked.

(And here, evidently too stoned to realize it, Beutler actually proves a point — a conservative point — about crime: People get shot to death all the time, for all kinds of reasons, or for no reason at all, and no policy advocated by liberals is going to prevent this from happening. Zimmerman shooting Trayvon? You can call that “racial profiling” or you can call it a tragic misunderstanding, but exactly how do you propose to prevent it from happening? “Zimmerman walked” because he had a claim of self-defense sufficiently plausible to constitute “reasonable doubt.” Also, notice that, while admitting that the teenagers in the Chris Lane shooting were illegally armed, Brian Beutler assumes that if Zimmerman “hadn’t been legally allowed to carry a handgun,” Zimmerman would not have also illegally armed himself. Why assume that? And what about Trayvon’s “whoop-ass” beating of Zimmerman, which Zimmerman said he thought might end in his own death? Would Brian Beutler have been happy to have Trayvon beat Zimmerman to death?)

Put that all together, and it turns out these stories aren’t counter-parallel at all. And more to the point, the events don’t even anecdotally augur for policies the right supports. The kids in Oklahoma weren’t “standing their ground,” and a “stand your ground” law wouldn’t have saved Chris Lane. Neither would a stop-and-frisk regime — the killers were trailing him in a car. By contrast, a “stand your ground” environment and a stop-and-frisk mentality were instrumental in Trayvon Martin’s death. Take either away , and there’s a good chance he’d be alive today. Martin in fact personified the statistical folly of stop-and-frisk. If Zimmerman had yielded to real police, they would have, in absence of any suspicious behavior, stopped Martin, frisked him and found only the skittles and iced tea that made his death that much more tragically poignant.

(Again, it is only Brian Beutler’s assertion that the Chris Lane murder is being reported because “conservative media” believe the story supports a policy argument. My own guess is that after the incessant 24/7 media drumbeat about the Zimmerman trial, which liberals claimed was an event fraught with political significance, some “conservative media” basically decided, “Hey, we’re going to stop downplaying or ignoring black-on-white crime, just to make a point.” But that’s merely my guess. Unlike Brian Beutler, I don’t possess any clairvoyant mind-reading powers that enable me to know why Fox News producers or Matt Drudge do what they do.)

You could twist that into a claim that stop-and-frisk might have saved Martin’s life. But that gets the onus backward. Proponents of profiling policies need to do better than argue we have to violate the civil rights of minorities in order to protect them from hair-triggered vigilantes.

(The “stop-and-frisk” thing is strictly an issue in New York, because of an NYPD policy that was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge. It has nothing to do with Oklahoma and even less to do with Sanford, Florida. Why Brian Beutler keeps bringing it up, I don’t know. Has the “stop-and-frisk” issue has been discussed by anyone at Fox News in the context of the Chris Lane murder? If it has, then why doesn’t he quote that discussion? In general, why are there no links or quotes in this column? Why can’t Brian Beutler be bothered to provide actual evidence of the phenomenon he presumes to critique? Why do liberals think it’s acceptable to assert controversial claims that they don’t bother to prove? How many bong-hits does Brian Beutler usually do before writing his columns? Seven. That’s  now an established fact — because I just asserted it, see?)

What might well have stopped both killings, though, is making it harder for people, legally or illegally, to come into possession of handguns. That’s a conversation the right is less obsessed with.

(Again with the assertion: People who Brian Beutler doesn’t like are “obsessed,” or they “ feel a burning urgency,” or have an “obsession with gun violence” and “an obsession with racial score settling,” or are motivated by “racial bias and wishful thinking.” Over and over again — pausing only to take another bong hit — Beutler attributes irrational motives to antagonists for doing what he asserts they are doing, although he merely asserts this without providing any actual evidence of it. There are no quotes from Fox News broadcasts in Brian Beutler’s column, no links to transcripts. It’s just a straight-up rant that was written only because Brian Beutler is supposed to write a certain number of columns per week for Salon and, because he never does any reporting or, for that matter, much of anything that could be called “research,” he just sat down, toked up a few bowls of sinsemilla and let it rip, right off the top of his head.)

Brian Beutler is Salon’s political writer. Email him at bbeutler@salon.com and follow him on Twitter at @brianbeutler.

(Or you could also block him on Twitter. Or say rude things about him on Twitter. Certainly there’s no reason to follow him, unless you want him to hook you up with some weed.)

Is there anything more galling than Obama calling Benghazi a “phony scandal”?

President Perpetual Campaign Mode recently dismissed as phony the numerous scandals swarming around his administration. Weasel Zippers has news of one heroic American who fought alongside the SEALs in Benghazi. Is he “phony” too Mr.president?

 

Via Daily Mail:

David Ubben, a State Department diplomatic security agent who was gravely injured in the terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is in the Walter Reed medical center near Washington, D.C., recuperating from injuries that almost cost him his right leg, but until Friday was kept out of reach of reporters.

Fox News established contact with Ubben at Walter Reed, showing only his blurred-out face in a still photograph during a television broadcast.

But members of Congress say they are still meeting resistance from the State Department, which is reportedly stonewalling them and denying them access to Ubben, who is still on the federal payroll and can’t speak about his Benghazi experience without clearance from State.

Why would the State Department attempt to silence him? While we may not know the whole story, we certainly know that they are likely covering something up. Yes, there is something phony alright, and it is stinking worse every day.

 

Juan Williams is Pathetic! Melissa Harris Perry is even more Pathetic

Good Freaking Grief! There are buffoons, and Williams is definitely one. I cannot grasp why anyone would pay attention to anything this clown says

Melissa Harris Perry is so obsessed with race that she really sees Gitmo detainees as equal in any way with slaves? This is what passes for intelligence at MSNBS?

Diversity? Not for White students apparently

Sometimes no added commentary is needed. Via Weasel Zippers

Via Fox News:

A Northwestern University student was rejected for a “diversity and inclusion post” in student government because he is a white, heterosexual male, resulting in a sharp rebuke from the university’s student newspaper.

Northwestern University’s Associated Student Government rejected the nomination of Stephen Piotrkowski for associate vice president of diversity and inclusion last week. The student-run committee “oversees diversity initiatives that stem from the undergraduate student body.”

Piotrkowski’s nomination sparked a heated discussion during an ASG meeting – described by a student reporter as “contentious.”

“This university is not ready, in any capacity, for a heterosexual white male to be in charge in any way of diversity and inclusion,” said Ian Coley, a member of the diversity committee. “I don’t know if any university is.”

ASG president Ani Ajith refused to answer questions about the matter. When asked by Fox News if he agreed with Coley’s remarks, Ajith hung up his phone.

“Piotrkowski was rejected on the basis that he is a white, heterosexual male,” the Daily Northwesterneditorial board charged in a staff editorial.

You know, if Liberals would stop trying to force their phony tolerance on everyone, and just live their lives they might figure out that America is a very tolerant place. But, the Left is intent on bringing us together by labeling us and dividing us. Why? Because their real aim is to change America into a Marxist State, and that requires dividing everyone.

Michelle Malkin uses Juan Williams as an intellectual punching bag again

Michelle rocks, God bless her, but Juan is pathetic. Seriously, some Conservatives give him some slack because NPR fired him and he spoke out against PC a bit. But, again, he is an empty suit, and one of the biggest wastes of air time I can imagine. Anyway, I always enjoy watching Michelle devastate Williams, so here it is, via Donald Douglas

How pissed is Michelle during this exchange? And who can blame her, listening to Juan Williams babble about “politicizing” the hearings. Really? Team Obama politicizes everything, and Juan shakes his head in approval, but if anyone dares seek the truth, Williams accuses them of playing politics. Good grief how doe she look at himself in the mirror?

 

Dear Liberals, even Bob Beckel gets it

Gets what you wonder? This!

Via Politico:

Fox News analyst Bob Beckel defended his comments about temporarily prohibiting Muslim students from entering the country Tuesday saying it wasn’t a position he takes lightly.

“My point is not to suggest that there’s a cell of 70,000 people here. What I’m suggesting is that those students coming from those countries where [they] harbor resentment against the United States, if we could save one Boston marathon event or one child’s life by saying we’re going to take a two-year hiatus from countries that we know do not like us and know from whence terrorism is coming,” Beckel told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on her show.

On Monday evening’s edition of “The Five,” which Beckel co-hosts, he suggested “cutting off” Muslim students from coming into this country for some time, in response to the Boston bombing.

“I think we really have to consider, that given the fact so many people hate us, we’re going to have to cut off Muslim students from coming to this country for some period of time so that we can at least absorb what we got, look at what we’ve got and decide whether some of the people here should be sent back home or sent to prison,” Beckel said Monday.

We area  sovereign nation, and therefore possess every right to determine who we give visas to. 

 

The real price of Obamacare equals the stupidity of “gimme” voters

We are sinking as a nation, and one big reason is Americans who, as I say vote with their hands out. Call the gimme voters, or what will the government do for me voters, or low info voters, or just simply morons, whatever you prefer. As Matt explains, these people are stuck in the pit of  entitlements, and they are taking us down with them.

It’s a shame that so many Obama voter are suffering the consequences of their vote.  But, then again, being a “low information voter” is a choice.  The information was out there, freely available.  People could  have looked up the facts and known that they were in for it if the voted Democrat.  But, too many listened to the MSM, or their union boss, and now, they are paying the price-literally and figuratively.  FOX News has the latest example, the Regal Entertainment Group,

The nation’s largest movie theater chain has cut the hours of thousands of employees, saying in a company memo that ObamaCare requirements are to blame.

Regal Entertainment Group, which operates more than 500 theaters in 38 states, last month rolled back shifts for non-salaried workers to 30 hours per week, putting them under the threshold at which employers are required to provide health insurance. The Nashville-based company said in a letter to managers that the move was a direct result of ObamaCare.

So, that “free” health care is going to cost these workers in two ways. First, their paychecks are going to shrink. Secondly, they are STILL obligated to buy health care. Remember that individual mandate? And, with health insurance premiums rising………….well figure out who will be hit the very hardest? Yep! The little guy. Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention that John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, massive pile of dung that he is, also bares tremendous blame. I do not not know which is worse, a fool who votes out of greed without considering the consequences, or a fool who knows what is right, and screws the Constitution and America anyway.

 

 

Roger Ailes: Obama Is Lazy, Biden Dumb As an Ashtray

Well, I do not know about that Biden crack I think ash trays might have higher IQ’s

Fox News chief Roger Ailes says President Barack Obama is “lazy’’ and claims the commander-in-chief “never worked a day in his life,’’ a controversial new book claims.

Ailes also takes shots at Vice President Joe Biden, saying, “he’s as dumb as an ashtray,” and at Newt Gingrich, who he says is a “sore loser.”

“Obama’s the one who never worked a day in his life. He never earned a penny that wasn’t public money,’’ Ailes said, according to Chafets.

“How many fundraisers does he attend every week? How often does he play basketball and golf? I wish I had that kind of time. … He’s lazy, but the media won’t report that.” 

Ouch! What he says is true though. What jobs has Obama held? And no, community organizing agitating does not count

 

Keith Ellison (Douche Nozzle) makes a complete ass of himself on Hannity

Donald Douglas calls this a meltdown. I would call it a Democrat showing his true colors

Ellison is a grade A tool, a bully, and a disgrace to this nation. watch his mannerisms during this debate, which is not a debate of course because Ellison simply rants like a thug. Ellison is a thug, watch Ellison’s face. He is acting like some punk trying to start a fight. That is what the Democratic party has become, a party of thugs.

 

Bob Beckel is your Daley Douchebag

I have to ask, what does Beckel bring to any debate? I mean besides possible drunkenness? This guy is a buffoon, a walk behinder who spews Liberal talking points. What he is not even bright enough to make up his own lies? When I look at Beckel, I ask how this walking poster for birth control ever made it anywhere, except the local bar of course! Any doubts as to the absolute lack of character this ass hat has are washed away in this clip.

 

More of the Blame Game from Team Obama

Whenever some member of Team Obama cannot get the job done, they step up and place the blame anywhere but with themselves! PATHETIC!

Solis blamed the Tea Party for the Obama’s Administration’s record unemployment rate.

Sooper Mexican uncovered this from FOX News Latino:

Solis said her biggest disappointment as Secretary of Labor was that she wished she would of, “had the ability to really get more businesses to understand the importance of having confidence in the economy and hiring up more people,” and hoped business leaders would help more young people coming out of college with more emphasize internships and mentorships.

Solis also said that in many ways the Obama administration “did not get the kind of support we needed originally when he took office for the American Recovery Act funds” and blamed “a small group known as the tea party movement” for not engaging with the president and “hurting the American public, our economy, and the future of our country.”

No clue, no class, no credibility, that is Team Obama’s legacy!
