Once again, Democrats hurt Black kids, will the uniformed voters take note?

Conservative Hideout has news that should not surprise anyone. The Justice Department is suing Louisiana to stop school vouchers

In something reminiscent of the 60′s, Democrats are barring minorities from escaping terrible public schools.    Doug Ross has our first excerpt…

Pro-Choice: The Justice Department has asked a federal court to stop 34 school districts in Louisiana from handing out private-school vouchers so kids can escape failing public schools, just like the president’s daughters.

He didn’t say it on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” but President Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder, also has a dream — one of leaving every black child in the Pelican State behind, trapped in schools that cannot educate them.

Almost simultaneously with the president’s speech, Holder’s Department of Justice filed suit in federal court to stop Louisiana’s statewide voucher program.

Passed in 2012, the program guarantees a voucher tostudents from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded “C” or below.

Liberals are all for choice when it comes to having children, but not when it comes to educating them. The irony of Obama’s speech is that he pretended to honor a man who fought to have black children attend schools they were barred from as his administration fought to keep them in schools they can’t escape from, a form of educational apartheid that’s both separate and unequal.

Why would they do this? Why would they seek to keep down kids whose parents are trying to get them in better schools? Oh, they will give many reasons, but the fact is this. there is only ONE REASON for this. Democrats are beholden to teachers unions, yes, but the bigger reason is they want for minority kids to be dumbed down, it keeps them voting Democrat! Matt has more, make sure to read this

Let’s also understand that the public school system, that systematically fails to educate everyone, but especially minorities, is little more than a vassal of the Democratic Party, and serviced by the teachers union.  In spite of the overwhelming evidence, Both the Democrats and the unions steadfastly refuse any attempts to reform it, as that would mean removing their control of it.  Now, why would they so vehemently resist changing it?  I posted a story of a 13 year old girl that found the answer, and was punished for it…

If you needed more proof, kindly considers what happens when a young black student “wakes up” to history, and has the temerity to quote Frederick Douglass, in the proper context…

Mr. Vargas is fortunate enough to have in his charge one Jada Williams, a 13-year-old eighth grader who voluntarily took on some difficult extra work: reading Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the Life and writing an essay on the subject. Frederick Douglass is dangerous reading, truly radical stuff. Miss Williams, like most of thestudents in her dysfunctional school, is black. Most of the people being paid to go through the motions of teaching them are white. Coming across the famous passage in which Douglass quotes the slavemaster Auld, Miss Williams was startled by the words: “If you teach that nigger (speaking of myself) how to read, there will be no keeping him. It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.” The situation seemed to her familiar, and her essay was a blistering indictment of the failures of the largely white faculty of her school: “When I find myself sitting in a crowded classroom where no real instruction is taking place I can say history does repeat itself.”

Her teacher was so offended by the essay that she circulated copies of it to the rest of the faculty and to the principal. Miss Williams, an A student, suddenly began to receive Ds. According to accounts, her mother received harassing telephone calls from teachers who suggested that she was in some way disturbed rather than merely observant. She was forced eventually to withdraw from the school and enroll in an even worse one. (The Blaze has more.)

So, a student woke up, and realized that she was being enslaved by a failing system, was punished for noticing the truth?  Well, let’s just say that it gets more interesting…

Teachers refused to show Miss Williams’s mother the schoolwork she had allegedly performed poorly on, and they refused to answer many of her questions about her daughter’s performance and alleged behavioral problems.

The teachers also failed to enter Miss Williams’s essay in the contest for which it was written — intentionally sabotaging her chances at an academic honor.

It is our contention that most of the regressive/Marxist/Democrat Party social programs are intended to no only create dependency, but to perpetuate it forever.  The chains of this new slavery were forged by the Democrats, are expanded, and are strengthened by the Democrats.  And, when of their victims notices who it is that is enslaving them, there is quick and sure retribution.  Because, you see, ideas are dangerous things, especially ones about escaping the government plantation.

Racism anyone? I keep saying the Left will do anything to seize and keep perpetual power, this is just further proof. If you are Black and really want to see your biggest enemy, go find a Democratic politician.

 

Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder ignores Supreme Court ruling on Voting Rights Act

Here goes Team Obama again, snubbing their nose at the rule of law, and the highest court in America

Via Red Alert:

In response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision that states are innocent of institutional racism until proven guilty, Attorney General Eric Holder is arguing that Texas’ “history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities” should make its voting laws subject to the Department of Justice’s oversight indefinitely.

While speaking before the National Urban League in Philadelphia on Thursday, Holder said his agency would ask a federal judge to require Texas to submit all its voting laws to the DOJ for review before they can be legally enacted because the state has a supposed history of discrimination and racism.

“And today I am announcing that the Justice Department will ask a federal court in Texas to subject the State of Texas to a pre-clearance regime similar to the one required by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act,” Holder said at the organization’s annual conference.

The Attorney General cited “evidence of intentional racial discrimination” found following the case Texas v. Holder, in addition to a ”history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities.” He continued, saying the state would need to acquire “pre-approval” from either the Department of Justice or a federal court before implementing any future changes in voting laws.

I expect there is a good chance Governor Perry will ignore the Attorney General. Don’t mess with Texas!

 

The Left’s war on self-defense

The Left, as in left reality years ago, are going to milk every last drop of exploitation from the Zimmerman verdict. The main target? Your right to defend yourself. Weasel Zippers brings news that Sheila Jackson-Lee (D) for dumb ass, is going to file a bill to cut funding for states that do not strike down their evil “stand your ground” laws

 

Via The Hill:

“We will … decrease the incidence of gun violence resulting from vigilantes by reducing by 20 percent the funds that would otherwise be allocated… to any state that does not require local neighborhood watch programs to be registered with a local [law] enforcement agency,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor.

She said her bill would also use the threat of less federal money to entice states to change their “stand your ground” laws. Jackson Lee said her bill would only allow states to avoid a cut if their laws are amended to include a “duty to retreat.”

“For states that do not require a duty to retreat, we will question their federal funding and assess their Justice Department funding and reduce it by 20 percent,” she said. She was not specific about what the change might mean for state laws.

There is no evidence that stand your ground law are racist, or that they increase crime, or “vigilantism”. These laws simply give citizens the right to defend themselves with deadly force outside their homes if they are in danger. The “duty to retreat” nonsense requires YOU the person threatened to run, or back away. Why impose such a requirement on the law-abiding? Why make those defending themselves surrender any part of their inherent right to self-defense? One big reason is that the Left would use such laws to go after concealed carry permit holders, that is the next step in any state that repeals their stand your ground law. Make no mistake, no right is more loathed by the Left than the right to self-defense. The Left believes all our rights MUST come ONLY from government.

 

Oh great, now President Obama is playing the race baiting game

A sad day, but, considering who our president is, no surprise

Oh good grief, the Left is going balls out to exploit this “racial” incident that had not one damn thing to do with race, unless you want to point to Trayvon Martin the Cracker hater that is. Exploit, exploit, exploit. And if more riots are sparked, so be it. Hell maybe sparking more riots IS the goal here. Think about it, ramp up the rhetoric and the emotion, spark more riots. More Americans are concealed carry permit holders now, so the odds that someone uses a gun to defend themselves or property against rioting thugs increases. Then, use those shooting as examples of the racist heart of America, and to condemn gun owners even more and pump up the pressure for more gun control, laws. Diabolical? Sure, but, remember the Left means it when they say by any means necessary. They mean it when they say no justice no peace, and yes they certainly mean it when they talk of not letting a good crisis go to waste. And no, they are not above creating crisis. Hell, this whole Zimmerman trial is evidence of that!

If you have 17 minutes to waste, here is President Obama’s entire speech

So this is what post-racial means?

Obama was going to be our first “post-racial” president. Being a person who could not give a flip less about race, I wondered what that meant exactly. I knew a lot of Americans voted for Obama in 2008 BECAUSE of his skin color, and I thought that was strange, I mean if we were now a post-racial nation, why would anyone even consider  Obama’s skin color? Well since he assumed the office, President Obama has given us a very clear image of what  exactly post-racial means. And, I gotta say, it looks pretty damned racial to me.

The Left has ramped up its race baiting to a fever pitch. The vitriol launched against Conservatives is completely out of control. Our Attorney General Eric Holder, seem to be pretty obsessed with race frankly, and just ask George Zimmerman how post racial he feels these days.

The United States Department of Justice just doesn’t want to make life any easier for George Zimmerman apparently.

The DoJ has put a hold on all evidence related to the case, which includes Zimmerman’s Kel Tec PF9 handgun, which, under Florida law, should be returned to him.

According to the Daily Mail,

WESH-TV in Orlando reported Thursday afternoon that police had confirmed the evidence ‘hold,’ meaning that everything related to the trial, from Zimmerman’s gun to the Skittles and iced tea Martin was carrying when the pair’s altercation began, will remain in the hands of law enforcement.

The DOJ did not immediately respond to questions about whether it will take custody of the evidence, or when that might occur.

So, to be clear, in post-racial America, a man can defend himself, the local authorities can find no reason to charge him with any crime but a race pimp on the radio, Al Sharpton, can exploit the story and try to make it about race, and that leads to asinine second-degree murder charges? In the trial of the man who the media and Left tried to paint as a crazy White guy, even though he is Hispanic, the prosecution can consistently accuse that man of hunting down a Black kid because he is a racist profiler. And when this man is acquitted, the Left explodes in outrage, continuing their baseless charges of racism, and racial profiling. And what does this post-racial president do? Does he step up and say calm down, George Zimmerman has been found not guilty? Does he scold those engaging in racially charged vitriol? Does he urge Americans to accept the verdict? Does he move to bring people together? NO, he allows his Attorney General to persecute a man who a jury found not guilty. And a man who the FBI saw no grounds to pursue civil rights charges against?

So THAT is what post-racial means? The federal government persecuting a man and fanning rather than putting out the flames of racial division? 

 

Politics has no place in our justice system, right Mr. President?

George Zimmerman’s trial, joke that it is, proves that in the PC age in which we live, justice is no longer blind. Justice is now a political tool apparently. Stacy McCain lays out the case against our “post-racial” presidential administration

While I haven’t followed the George Zimmerman trial closely, I have noticed the widespread reaction to the trial, namely, “Why are they even having this trial?” There is no way in hell Zimmerman will be convicted. Some see it as a clear-cut case of self-defense, but everyone who has watched the testimony sees enough “reasonable doubt” in the prosecution’s case that it seems obvious the jury will acquit.

So, once again: Why are they even having this trial? And the answer would seem to be, because the Obama administration wanted it.

Lee Stranahan writes at Breibart.com:

Welcome to Trayvongate, where the President of the United States used both the bully pulpit, the Department of Justice and sly media manipulation to gin up charges of racism in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin shooting. Now that the trial is almost finished and the only act of racism mentioned so far came from the victim–Martin called Zimmerman ‘a creepy ass cracker’ according to testimony–the cynical and repeated use of the race card by the White house is even more abhorrent.
Judicial Watch revealed documents today that proved what Breitbart News reported in April, 2012: that Eric Holder’s Department of Justice took an active role in racially charged rallies in Sanford, Florida and that the Community Relations Service helped force the temporary resignation of Sheriff Bill Lee. That resignation made it appear that Sanford authorities were suspect and possibly complicit in covering up something. . . .

Equally disturbing to me is how the prosecution attempted to introduce a brand new charge at the end of this trial. They know they over charged, they know this was all political, yet, they are still willing to pull these tricks out? I guess justice does not mater much to them either. This ought to scare the hell out of every one of us. Because if it can happen in Sanford Florida……..

AG to enforce Sharia now?

Seems like a headline that is too crazy to believe. Just too over the top right? Maybe, unless the Obama administration is involved, I mean, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, spying on the press, using the EPA to attack businesses, using the IRS to intimidate political opponents, arming the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, what is a little Sharia down America’s throat.

 

You just knew this was coming, didn’t you?

DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights.

The move comes a few years after the administration became the first in history to dispatch a U.S. Attorney General to personally reassure Muslims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is dedicated to protecting them. In the unprecedented event, Attorney General Eric Holder assured a San Francisco-based organization (Muslim Advocates) that urges members not to cooperate in federal terrorism investigations that the “us versus them” environment created by the U.S. government, law enforcement agents and fellow citizens is unacceptable and inconsistent with what America is all about.

Yeah, because no administration knows what America is about like Team Obama right?

…Evidently that was a precursor of sorts for an upcoming Tennessee event (“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society”) that will feature the region’s top DOJ official [Bill Killian], who serves as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and an FBI representative. The goal is to increase awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles, according to a local newspaper report. The June 4 powwow is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.

The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

Time will tell as to what comes of this, but just in case you want to know what a “violation” of Islamic Law might be Doug Ross has a list of no no’s

- speaking ill of Allah
– finding fault with Muhammad
– speculating about how Muhammad would behave if he were alive
– drawing a picture to represent Muhammad
– whistling during prayers
– flouting the rules prescribed for Ramadan
– reciting Muslim prayers in a language other than Arabic
– consuming alcohol
– gambling
– being alone with persons of the opposite sex who are not blood relatives
– finding amusement in Islamic customs
– publishing an unofficial translation of the Qur’an
– practicing yoga
– watching a film or listening to music
– wearing make-up on television
– insulting religious scholarship
– wearing the clothing of Jews or of Zoroastrians
– participating in non-Islamic religious festivals
– converting from Islam to Christianity

Fundamental change anyone?
