Race, race, race, that is all this poor deranged woman can think of it seems. It must be a case of Racial Obsession Syndrome, or ROS. Bob Belvedere has more on Soledad’s descent into absurdity
From The Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard reporting, we learn:
Soledad O’Brien, recently yanked from her morning show “Starting Point” on CNN, plans to continue her focus on racial issues and is charging that whites are afraid of dealing with the nation’s black-white division.
O’Brien, just named a distinguished visiting fellow at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, told the school’s Institute of Politics that she’s often confronted by whites who want to take issue with her documentaries on race in America.
“People would sometimes, when I give speeches, stand up and say, ‘You know, I think your black America documentaries (are) divisive. I think like, you know, listen, we shouldn’t think of ourselves as African-American. We’re Americans, and everybody should stop separating themselves out,’” she said in a new video from the institute.
She continued: “First of all, it’s only white people who ever said that — ‘if we could just see beyond race. If only people didn’t see race, it would be such a better place, and you are responsible for bringing up these icky race issues, Soledad, you should just let sleeping dogs lie.’”
O’Brien added: “I was like, again, ‘OK, white person, this is a conversation you clearly are uncomfortable with, and I have no problem seeing race, and I think we should talk about race.”
See how this malady messes with the mind’s of its victims? She wants us to be obsessed with skin color, as if skin color defines us. And if you are not as obsessed with skin color as she is? Well, then YOU area RAAAAACIST! Of course, people like Soledad say we should talk about race, until a Conservative opens their mouth and says race is unimportant. Then they scream RAAAAACIST!
Heading out to work, but I had to post this story I found at The Lonely Conservative
What really happened in Benghazi?
It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election!
The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”
But something went horribly wrong with Obama’s “October Surprise.” Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down, saved American lives, single-handedly killed scores of attackers…and the attackers, believing that Obama had betrayed them, tortured Ambassador Chris Stevens and dragged his body through the streets.
Some will say that Admiral Lyons’ accusation is not a smoking gun. We agree; that’s exactly why Congress must investigate Benghazi-gate.
We will see how this accusation, and that is all it is at this point shakes out. I recall early on hearing rumors about this being a failed “October Surprise” was it? Hopefully we will find out.
Too angry about this to comment right now. I am so sick of kids being punished for being kids!
A six year-old boy in Maryland was suspended from school after he formed his fingers into the shape of a gun and saying, “Pow!”
The boy was given a day off for the pretend shooting.
The UPI reported, via Free Republic:
A Maryland 6-year-old was suspended from school for forming the shape of a gun with his hands and saying “pow,” a lawyer for his family said.
Robin Ficker said a boy, a student at Roscoe R. Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring, was given a one-day suspension from school with a conference planned for when students returned from winter break for the pretend shooting a week after 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., The (Springfield, Va.) Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.
“What they’re doing is looking at the worst possible interpretation of a young, naive 6-year-old,” Ficker said. “This is a little child who can’t form the intent to do anything like that.”
Assistant Principal Renee Garraway sent a letter to the boy’s parents saying the child had been warned.
“Your son … was involved in a serious incident,” Garraway wrote. “(He) threatened to shoot a student. He was spoken to earlier today about a similar incident.”
OK, I lied, I am angry but I have to comment. Asst. Principal Renee Garraway calls a six-year-old pointing a finger and saying “pow” a serious incident? How exactly does a buffoon like this ever get put in any position with any authority? Of course, this is a case of a teacher/principal just saying what they have been trained to say. I guess you cannot dumb down students without first dumbing down the teachers and administrators right?
Why can’t Johnny read? Maybe because the folks running the schools cannot think!
