Court: Cops Can Kick In Your Door And Seize Your Guns Without A Warrant If They Feel It’s In Your Best Interest

Shock FedGov Court Ruling: Police Can Kick In Your Door And Seize Guns Without Warrant Or Charges – Daily Sheeple

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals may have just dealt a serious blow to the U.S. Constitution.

.

. In a unanimous decision earlier this month the Court determined that law enforcement officers are not required to present a warrant or charges before forcibly entering a person’s home, searching it and confiscating their firearms if they believe it is in the individual’s best interests.

The landmark suit was brought before the court by Krysta Sutterfield of Milwaukee, who had recently visited a psychiatrist for outpatient therapy resulting from some bad news that she had received. According to court records Sutterfield had expressed a suicidal thought during the visit, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, when she said “I guess I’ll go home and blow my brains out.” This prompted her doctor to contact police.

For several hours the police searched for Sutterfield, speaking with neighbors and awaiting her return home. They received an update from her psychiatrist who said that Sutterfield had contacted her and advised that she was not in need of assistance and to “call off” the search, which the doctor did not agree to. Police eventually left and Sutterfield returned home, only to be visited later that evening by the lead detective on the case:

Krysta Sutterfield vs. city of Milwaukee, et al.

Sutterfield answered Hewitt’s knock at the front door but would not engage with her, except to state repeatedly that she had “called off” the police and to keep shutting the door on Hewitt. Sutterfield would not admit Hewitt to the residence, and during the exchange kept the outer storm door closed and locked. Unable to gain admittance to the house, Hewitt concluded that the police would have to enter it forcibly.

Sutterfield called 911 in an effort to have the officers leave; as a result of that call, the ensuing events were recorded by the emergency call center. Sutterfield can be heard on the recording telling the officers that she was fine and that she did not want anyone to enter her residence.

After informing Sutterfield of his intention to open the storm door forcibly if she did not unlock it herself, Berken yanked the door open and entered the house with the other officers to take custody of Sutterfield pursuant to the statement of detention. A brief struggle ensued.

Sutterfield can be heard on the 911 recording demanding both that the officers let go of her and that they leave her home. (Sutterfield would later say that the officers tackled her.) Sutterfield was handcuffed and placed in the officers’ custody.

At that point the officers conducted a protective sweep of the home. In the kitchen, officer James Floriani observed a compact disc carrying case in plain view. He picked up the soft-sided case, which was locked, and surmised from the feel and weight of its contents that there might be a firearm inside. He then forced the case open and discovered a semi-automatic  handgun inside; a yellow smiley-face sticker was affixed to the barrel of the gun, covering the muzzle. Also inside the case were concealed-carry firearm licenses from multiple jurisdictions other than Wisconsin. Elsewhere in the kitchen the officers discovered a BB gun made to realistically resemble a Glock 29 handgun.

The contents of the case were seized along with the BB gun and placed into police inventory for safekeeping.

Berken would later state that he authorized the seizure of the handgun in order to keep them out of the hands of a juvenile, should a juvenile enter the house unaccompanied by an adult while Sutterfield remained in the hospital.

 

Sutterfield subsequently filed a lawsuit against the City of Milwaukee with the district court, a case that was initially dismissed. She then filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th District claiming that her Second and Fourth Amendment rights were violated.

In a 75-page opinion the court, while pointing out that the intrusion against Sutterfield was profound, sided with the city of Milwaukee:

“The intrusions upon Sutterfield’s privacy were profound,” Judge Ilana Rovner wrote for three-judge panel.

“At the core of the privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment is the right to be let alone in one’s home.”

But the court also found, that on the other hand, “There is no suggestion that (police) acted for any reason other than to protect Sutterfield from harm.”

“Even if the officers did exceed constitutional boundaries,” the court document states, “they are protected by qualified immunity.”

 

As noted by Police State USA, the court may have just created a legal loophole for law enforcement officials around the country, giving them immunity from Constitutional violations if they merely suggest that exigent circumstances exist and that they are acting in the best interests of the health and safety of an alleged suspect, regardless of Constitutional requirements:

In short, Sutterfield’s privacy (which was admittedly encroached upon) was left unprotected by the Bill of Rights because of the “exigent circumstances” in which police executed an emergency detention – with no warrant, no criminal charges, and no input from the judiciary. Similarly, the gun confiscation was also deemed as acceptable due to the so-called “emergency” which police claimed had been taking place for 9 consecutive hours.

The federal ruling affirms a legal loophole which allows targeted home invasions, warrantless searches, and gun confiscations that rest entirely in the hands of the Executive Branch. The emergency aid doctrine enables police to act without a search warrant, even if there is time to get one.  When the government wants to check on someone, his or her rights are essentially suspended until the person’s sanity has been forcibly validated.

 

The implications of the courts legal decision are alarmingly broad. Though this particular case involved exigent circumstances in which an individual suggested she wanted to commit suicide, albeit tongue-in-cheek, the court’s opinion suggests that such tactics can be applied for any “emergency” wherein police subjectively determine that an individual may be a danger to themselves or others.

Under new statutes passed by the federal government these emergencies and dangers could potentially include any number of scenarios. Senator Rand Paul recently highlighted that there are laws on the books that categorize a number of different activities as having the potential for terrorism, including things like purchasing bulk ammunition. Last month, when a group of concerned citizens assembled at Bundy Ranch in Nevada to protest government overreach, Senator Harry Reid dubbed them “domestic terrorists.” Even paying with cash or complaining about chemicals in water can land an American on the terror watch list.  Non-conformists who do not subscribe to the status quo can now be considered mentally insane according to psychiatrists’ Diagnostic and Statistics Manual of Mental Disorders.

Law enforcement has an almost unlimited amount of circumstances they can cite to justify threats to one’s self or others, and thus, to ignore Constitutional requirements when serving at the behest of the local, state or federal government.

Have the Federal Court’s latest decision made it possible for these vaguely defined suspicious activities to be molded into exigent circumstances that give police the right to enter homes without due process, confiscate legally owned personal belongings, and detain residents without charge?

The Unvarnished Truth about Blacks and the Criminal Justice System

May 16, 2014

Confessions of a Public Defender

Michael Smith, American Renaissance, May 9, 2014

Still liberal after all these years.

I am a public defender in a large southern metropolitan area. Fewer than ten percent of the people in the area I serve are black but over 90 per cent of my clients are black. The remaining ten percent are mainly Hispanics but there are a few whites.

I have no explanation for why this is, but crime has racial patterns. Hispanics usually commit two kinds of crime: sexual assault on children and driving under the influence. Blacks commit many violent crimes but very few sex crimes. The handful of whites I see commit all kinds of crimes. In my many years as a public defender I have represented only three Asians, and one was half black.

As a young lawyer, I believed the official story that blacks are law abiding, intelligent, family-oriented people, but are so poor they must turn to crime to survive. Actual black behavior was a shock to me.

The media invariably sugarcoat black behavior. Even the news reports of the very crimes I dealt with in court were slanted. Television news intentionally leaves out unflattering facts about the accused, and sometimes omits names that are obviously black. All this rocked my liberal, tolerant beliefs, but it took me years to set aside my illusions and accept the reality of what I see every day. I have now served thousands of blacks and their families, protecting their rights and defending them in court. What follow are my observations.

Although blacks are only a small percentage of our community, the courthouse is filled with them: the halls and gallery benches are overflowing with black defendants, families, and crime victims. Most whites with business in court arrive quietly, dress appropriately, and keep their heads down. They get in and get out–if they can–as fast as they can. For blacks, the courthouse is like a carnival. They all seem to know each other: hundreds and hundreds each day, gossiping, laughing loudly, waving, and crowding the halls.

When I am appointed to represent a client I introduce myself and explain that I am his lawyer. I explain the court process and my role in it, and I ask the client some basic questions about himself. At this stage, I can tell with great accuracy how people will react. Hispanics are extremely polite and deferential. An Hispanic will never call me by my first name and will answer my questions directly and with appropriate respect for my position. Whites are similarly respectful.

A black man will never call me Mr. Smith; I am always “Mike.” It is not unusual for a 19-year-old black to refer to me as “dog.” A black may mumble complaints about everything I say, and roll his eyes when I politely interrupt so I can continue with my explanation. Also, everything I say to blacks must be at about the third-grade level. If I slip and use adult language, they get angry because they think I am flaunting my superiority.

At the early stages of a case, I explain the process to my clients. I often do not yet have the information in the police reports. Blacks are unable to understand that I do not yet have answers to all of their questions, but that I will by a certain date. They live in the here and the now and are unable to wait for anything. Usually, by the second meeting with the client I have most of the police reports and understand their case.

Unlike people of other races, blacks never see their lawyer as someone who is there to help them. I am a part of the system against which they are waging war. They often explode with anger at me and are quick to blame me for anything that goes wrong in their case.

Black men often try to trip me up and challenge my knowledge of the law or the facts of the case. I appreciate sincere questions about the elements of the offense or the sentencing guidelines, but blacks ask questions to test me. Unfortunately, they are almost always wrong in their reading, or understanding, of the law, and this can cause friction. I may repeatedly explain the law, and provide copies of the statute showing, for example, why my client must serve six years if convicted, but he continues to believe that a hand-written note from his “cellie” is controlling law.

The cellie who knows the law.

The risks of trial

The Constitution allows a defendant to make three crucial decisions in his case. He decides whether to plea guilty or not guilty. He decides whether to have a bench trial or a jury trial. He decides whether he will testify or whether he will remain silent. A client who insists on testifying is almost always making a terrible mistake, but I cannot stop him.

Most blacks are unable to speak English well. They cannot conjugate verbs. They have a poor grasp of verb tenses. They have a limited vocabulary. They cannot speak without swearing. They often become hostile on the stand. Many, when they testify, show a complete lack of empathy and are unable to conceal a morality based on the satisfaction of immediate, base needs. This is a disaster, especially in a jury trial. Most jurors are white, and are appalled by the demeanor of uneducated, criminal blacks.

Prosecutors are delighted when a black defendant takes the stand. It is like shooting fish in a barrel. However, the defense usually gets to cross-examine the black victim, who is likely to make just as bad an impression on the stand as the defendant. This is an invaluable gift to the defense, because jurors may not convict a defendant—even if they think he is guilty—if they dislike the victim even more than they dislike the defendant.

Jeantel Rachel: Blacks often make bad witnesses.

Most criminal cases do not go to trial. Often the evidence against the accused is overwhelming, and the chances of conviction are high. The defendant is better off with a plea bargain: pleading guilty to a lesser charge and getting a lighter sentence.

The decision to plea to a lesser charge turns on the strength of the evidence. When blacks ask the ultimate question—”Will we win at trial?”—I tell them I cannot know, but I then describe the strengths and weaknesses of our case. The weaknesses are usually obvious: There are five eyewitnesses against you. Or, you made a confession to both the detective and your grandmother. They found you in possession of a pink cell phone with a case that has rhinestones spelling the name of the victim of the robbery. There is a video of the murderer wearing the same shirt you were wearing when you were arrested, which has the words “In Da Houz” on the back, not to mention you have the same “RIP Pookie 7/4/12” tattoo on your neck as the man in the video. Etc.

If you tell a black man that the evidence is very harmful to his case, he will blame you. “You ain’t workin’ fo’ me.” “It like you workin’ with da State.” Every public defender hears this. The more you try to explain the evidence to a black man, the angrier he gets. It is my firm belief many black are unable to discuss the evidence against them rationally because they cannot view things from the perspective of others. They simply cannot understand how the facts in the case will appear to a jury.

This inability to see things from someone else’s perspective helps explain why there are so many black criminals. They do not understand the pain they are inflicting on others. One of my robbery clients is a good example. He and two co-defendants walked into a small store run by two young women. All three men were wearing masks. They drew handguns and ordered the women into a back room. One man beat a girl with his gun. The second man stood over the second girl while the third man emptied the cash register. All of this was on video.

My client was the one who beat the girl. When he asked me, “What are our chances at trial?” I said, “Not so good.” He immediately got angry, raised his voice, and accused me of working with the prosecution. I asked him how he thought a jury would react to the video. “They don’t care,” he said. I told him the jury would probably feel deeply sympathetic towards these two women and would be angry at him because of how he treated them. I asked him whether he felt bad for the women he had beaten and terrorized. He told me what I suspected—what too many blacks say about the suffering of others: “What do I care? She ain’t me. She ain’t kin. Don’t even know her.”

No fathers

As a public defender, I have learned many things about people. One is that defendants do not have fathers. If a black even knows the name of his father, he knows of him only as a shadowy person with whom he has absolutely no ties. When a client is sentenced, I often beg for mercy on the grounds that the defendant did not have a father and never had a chance in life. I have often tracked down the man’s father–in jail–and have brought him to the sentencing hearing to testify that he never knew his son and never lifted a finger to help him. Often, this is the first time my client has ever met his father. These meetings are utterly unemotional.

Many black defendants don’t even have mothers who care about them. Many are raised by grandmothers after the state removes the children from an incompetent teenaged mother. Many of these mothers and grandmothers are mentally unstable, and are completely disconnected from the realities they face in court and in life. A 47-year-old grandmother will deny that her grandson has gang ties even though his forehead is tattooed with a gang sign or slogan. When I point this out in as kind and understanding way as I can, she screams at me. When black women start screaming, they invoke the name of Jesus and shout swear words in the same breath.

Black women have great faith in God, but they have a twisted understanding of His role. They do not pray for strength or courage. They pray for results: the satisfaction of immediate needs. One of my clients was a black woman who prayed in a circle with her accomplices for God’s protection from the police before they would set out to commit a robbery.

The mothers and grandmothers pray in the hallways–not for justice, but for acquittal. When I explain that the evidence that their beloved child murdered the shop keeper is overwhelming, and that he should accept the very fair plea bargain I have negotiated, they will tell me that he is going to trial and will “ride with the Lord.” They tell me they speak to God every day and He assures them that the young man will be acquitted.

The mothers and grandmothers do not seem to be able to imagine and understand the consequences of going to trial and losing. Some–and this is a shocking reality it took me a long time to grasp–don’t really care what happens to the client, but want to make it look as though they care. This means pounding their chests in righteous indignation, and insisting on going to trial despite terrible evidence. They refuse to listen to the one person–me–who has the knowledge to make the best recommendation. These people soon lose interest in the case, and stop showing up after about the third or fourth court date. It is then easier for me to convince the client to act in his own best interests and accept a plea agreement.

Part of the problem is that underclass black women begin having babies at age 15. They continue to have babies, with different black men, until they have had five or six. These women do not go to school. They do not work. They are not ashamed to live on public money. They plan their entire lives around the expectation that they will always get free money and never have to work. I do not see this among whites, Hispanics, or any other people.

The black men who become my clients also do not work. They get social security disability payments for a mental defect or for a vague and invisible physical ailment. They do not pay for anything: not for housing (Grandma lives on welfare and he lives with her), not for food (Grandma and the baby-momma share with him), and not for child support. When I learn that my 19-year-old defendant does not work or go to school, I ask, “What do you do all day?” He smiles. “You know, just chill.” These men live in a culture with no expectations, no demands, and no shame.

If you tell a black to dress properly for trial, and don’t give specific instructions, he will arrive in wildly inappropriate clothes. I represented a woman who was on trial for drugs; she wore a baseball cap with a marijuana leaf embroidered on it. I represented a man who wore a shirt that read “rules are for suckers” to his probation hearing. Our office provides suits, shirts, ties, and dresses for clients to wear for jury trials. Often, it takes a whole team of lawyers to persuade a black to wear a shirt and tie instead of gang colors.

From time to time the media report that although blacks are 12 percent of the population they are 40 percent of the prison population. This is supposed to be an outrage that results from unfair treatment by the criminal justice system. What the media only hint at is another staggering reality: recidivism. Black men are arrested and convicted over and over. It is typical for a black man to have five felony convictions before the age of 30. This kind of record is rare among whites and Hispanics, and probably even rarer among Asians.

Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics.

At one time our office was looking for a motto that defined our philosophy. Someone joked that it should be: “Doesn’t everyone deserve an eleventh chance?”

I am a liberal. I believe that those of us who are able to produce abundance have a moral duty to provide basic food, shelter, and medical care for those who cannot care for themselves. I believe we have this duty even to those who can care for themselves but don’t. This world view requires compassion and a willingness to act on it.

My experience has taught me that we live in a nation in which a jury is more likely to convict a black defendant who has committed a crime against a white. Even the dullest of blacks know this. There would be a lot more black-on-white crime if this were not the case.

However, my experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.

I do not know the solution to this problem. I do know that it is wrong to deceive the public. Whatever solutions we seek should be based on the truth rather than what we would prefer was the truth. As for myself, I will continue do my duty to protect the rights of all who need me.

There is No Longer Rule of Law in America – only Lawless Judges

December 20, 2013

Free Exercise Thereof

By T.L.Davis

We are in a post-republic America. There is no rule of law, there is only a rule of judges. Legislation is equal to a dictate from the king. That we elect the barons and the lords to rule over us does not lessen tyranny, but it makes us feel better; it gives us faith in the “system” and that is all the government really needs.Through several supreme court decisions, largely where they have ruled on Obamacare, the message as been sent: Whatever the government chooses to do is within its power. Think of that, what is a king, but someone allowed to do whatever they choose and the fact that they choose to do it makes it within their power.

No, we are not quite a monarchy, because the king is changed by the will of the people. But, we are much closer to a democracy, where whatever the government can persuade the people to support, through bribery, coercion or charisma, becomes law.

A republic is a government set up by law, where the law is greater than anyone who might violate it. There can be no one who violates the law and chooses to change the law rather than to suffer its consequences. There are means of dealing with such people, it is written int the Constitution and prescribes even how a president might be removed.

Our lost republic had recognized certain rights as being endowed by the creator, inviolable, irrevocable. Of these certain, inalienable rights is the right to religion, but that right is often misread and almost always misinterpreted. It states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The second clause is the important one:  Or prohibiting the free exercise there of. The congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Does that sound even remotely accurate to what we enjoy?

There is a deep necessity of those on the left to abolish Christianity. Now, I would say religion, but that is not true. They are accommodating of almost any religion, even phony religions, but not Christianity. To them, Christianity must be banished from the public eye. All references to Christianity must be striken from the record, banned from the schools, ripped from the monuments.

Why? (I ask this as a rhetorical device, please don’t send an e-mail explaining it to me)

Is it that they (Marxists in general and their stooges) intend to obliterate, defame and denigrate our founders to make change that much easier? They have already done what they can to link them with slavery, with racism, with every evil under the sun. They speak of them as if they were doddering old, racist fools who clung to religion and guns just like our friends in Pennsylvania. “Old White Men”. Why do they need to pretend that Lincoln, their hero, was not a Christian? He was not of a particular religion, but he was extraordinarily well versed with the Bible and could quote from it verbatum.

The whole reasoning behind the Revolution is undermined if God is taken out of government, because it is religion that founded this nation, gave it spirit, emboldened its revolutionaries and sustained them in the darkest days. Think of George Washington dropping to his knees and praying for his troops, for the survival of the new republic.

Any fight for liberty includes the right to practice religion, of any kind, freely, openly, without fear of reprisal by the government. In today’s society George Washington would have been reported to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and replaced by a more sensitive, diverse general, who would have promptly lost the war and everything could return to normal with the king.

It is that mentality that runs our government. It is that mentality that rules the GOP. They want things to go back to normal: when they didn’t get phone calls all the time by the Tea Party or the 2A supporters. When they could just do some dinners, raise some money and play chess with their liberal buddies on the other side of the aisle.

Piece by piece they have come after every right that protects the people from government and have honored every law that protects government from the people. The laws against privacy and guns are passed by legislators. The laws against religion are passed by judges. Maybe it’s time some phones at the Supreme Court began to ring.

With Republicans Out of the Way, Obama Will Now Stack the Courts With Communist Liberals

December 12, 2013

Obama Takes Control of DC Court of Appeals

Watch the other hand. While the herd is distracted by showy hagiographies of a former communist terrorist and the fiery crashing and burning of ObamaCare, Comrade Obama is quietly pressing the advantage his henchman Harry Reid acquired for him by discarding the centuries-old right of the minority party to filibuster judicial appointments. From Fox News:

Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation’s second most powerful court.

Millett probably would have been blocked by filibuster — before the Senate was fundamentally transformed into a rubber stamp for Obama.

Both sides saw Millett’s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations.

Wars have been fought over less. Control of the DC district court means Obama can inflict anything he likes through the fourth branch of government, the grotesquely massive and utterly unaccountable bureaucracy.

Economically crippling carbon taxes couldn’t make it through even a Democrat-controlled Senate, due to fear of retribution by voters. But the ideologically rabid EPA has no such concerns. Consequently, oppressive restrictions on the harmless carbon emissions that result from literally all economically productive activity will be imposed with zero meaningful input from voters. This will help drive up unemployment, increasing the dependency on federal largess on which the Democrat Party relies so heavily, and move us rapidly toward a centrally planned economy similar to the Soviet Union’s.

Even with the most shameless exploitation of Newtown conceivable, Democrats were unable to ram through seriously damaging attacks on the Second Amendment at the national level. No matter; the EPA can simply declare that lead hurts the environment.

There is no freedom that cannot be snuffed out by unelected and unfireable federal bureaucrats at malevolent rogue agencies like the EPA, IRS, and NSA. Our only defense short of an armed uprising is the courts. Obama et al. are systematically dismantling that defense.

The American Police State

December 10, 2013

How Every Part of American Life Became a Police Matter

From the workplace to our private lives, American society is starting to resemble a police state.

By | Mon Dec. 9, 2013 2:09 PM GMT


This story [1] first appeared on the TomDispatch [2] website.

If all you’ve got is a hammer, then everything starts to look like a nail. And if police and prosecutors are your only tool, sooner or later everything and everyone will be treated as criminal. This is increasingly the American way of life, a path that involves “solving” social problems (and even some non-problems) by throwing cops at them, with generallydisastrous results. Wall-to-wall criminal law encroaches ever more on everyday life as police power is applied in ways that would have been unthinkable just a generation ago.

[3]By now, the militarization of the police has advanced to the point where “the War on Crime” and “the War on Drugs” are no longer metaphors but bland understatements. There is the proliferation [4] of heavily armed SWAT teams, even in small towns; the use of shock-and-awe [5] tactics to bust small-time bookies; the no-knock raids to recover trace amounts of drugs that often result in the killing of family dogs, if not family members; and in communities where drug treatment programs once were key, the waging of a drug version of counterinsurgency war. (All of this is ably reported on journalist Radley Balko’s blog [6] and in his book, The Rise of the Warrior Cop [7].) But American over-policing involves far more than the widely reported up-armoring of your local precinct. It’s also the way police power has entered the DNA of social policy, turning just about every sphere of American life into a police matter.

The School-to-Prison Pipeline

It starts in our schools, where discipline is increasingly outsourced to police personnel. What not long ago would have been seen as normal childhood misbehavior—doodling [8] on a desk, farting [9] in class, a kindergartener’s tantrum [10]—can leave a kid in handcuffs, removed from school, or even booked at the local precinct. Such “criminals” can be as young as seven-year-old Wilson Reyes, a New Yorker who was handcuffed [11] and interrogated under suspicion of stealing five dollars from a classmate. (Turned out he didn’t do it.)

Though it’s a national phenomenon, Mississippi currently leads the way in turning school behavior into a police issue. The Hospitality State has imposed [12] felony charges on schoolchildren for “crimes” like throwing peanuts on a bus. Wearing the wrong color belt to school got one child handcuffed to a railing for several hours. All of this goes under the rubric of “zero-tolerance [13]” discipline, which turns out to be just another form of violence legally imported into schools.

Despite a long-term drop in youth crime, the carceral style of education remains in style. Metal detectors—a horrible way for any child to start the day—are installed [14] in ever more schools, even those with sterling [15] disciplinary records, despite the demonstrable fact that such scanners provide no guarantee against shootings [16] and stabbings [17].

Every school shooting, whether in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, or Littleton, Colorado, only leads to more police in schools and more arms as well. It’s the one thing the National Rifle Association and Democratic senators can agree [18] on. There are plenty [19] of successful [20] ways [21] to run an orderly school without criminalizing the classroom, but politicians and much of the media don’t seem to want to know about them. The “school-to-prison pipeline,” a jargon term coined by activists, is entering [22] the vernacular.

Wanna Know the Truth about Race in America? Here it is.

November 12, 2013

Updated Edition of White Girl Bleed a Lot

Good thing we have YouTube. Without it, Colin Flaherty would have had a hard time documenting the ongoing epidemic of black mob violence that he describes in his excellent White Girl Bleed a Lot. The updated second edition includes QR codes throughout; scan them with your phone or tablet and they take you straight to videos that tell you what the liberal media establishment won’t: the mayhem has gotten completely out of hand.

The violence is widespread and frequent, yet Flaherty’s job wasn’t easy, because media reports will usually refuse to mention race when it does not support the liberal narrative of white oppressors and saintly blacks. That’s where video comes in. Without it, readers might not believe him when he states,

In hundreds of episodes across the country since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America, intimidating, stalking, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, raping, and killing.

We are told the crime rate is down. But to some extent this is due to the police refusing to acknowledge that crimes took place, which is particularly likely to happen when the crimes make the liberal establishment uncomfortable — as with black mob violence.

The media doesn’t want to talk about it. Those who bring up the issue are denounced as racist. If backed into a corner, establishment journalists will deny the epidemic is real, then offer excuses for it in the next breath. When reporting can’t be avoided, the size of mobs is downplayed by counting only those who inflict the violence, not the dozens or hundreds more who egg them on. Due to the lack of coverage, most people don’t even know the problem exists — which sets them up to become victims.

Sometimes the violence is simply random mayhem. But it often targets whites, who risk their lives by merely walking down the street — and not just in places like Chicago and Philadelphia, but in smaller towns like Des Moines and Peoria.

Flaherty knows that writing about race in this country can be treacherous, so he sticks to simple rules:

[N]o stereotypes, no generalizations, no explanations, and no apologies. Also, no causes or solutions. Just the facts.

That is, he gives us what the establishment media won’t.

One person who does not avoid explanations is James Harris of 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee, site of some of the most outlandish chaos. He calls the violence

“the perfect storm of entitlement, dependency, political correctness, and this whole idea of white guilt where we’re afraid to identify who it is that’s attacking and the reasons why they are doing it…”

Occasionally these reasons are explicitly stated, as in the case of Nkosi Thandiwe, who killed Brittney Watts and wounded two other women in Midtown Atlanta in 2011. He testified that he had been taught to hate whites in his history classes at the University of West Georgia, confirming to an assistant district attorney that he was “trying to spread the message of making white people the enemy.”

But rather than try to read minds, Flaherty leaves it up to us to figure out what is driving this alarming phenomenon, which we can only do when we have the facts the authorities have been keeping from us.

If you want to know what is really going on out there, do not fail to read this book.

Celebrating Thuggery: Clown Posse on the Potomac

Posted on  by 

FBI

An unarmed woman was gunned down in or near her vehicle today in the bosom of DC and her child in the car with her was apparently unharmed except for the theft of her mother’s life by the usual armed and badged suspects who bring so much horror and calamity to daily American life. The woman was caught in the cross-hairs of the terror state that has emerged to fight terrorism by using terrorism. Terrorism is politically motivated violence against non-combatants and innocents which fits the political science description of what all statist government does and the tactics employed by its uniformed gangs deployed across the fruited plain to deliver the real war of terror.

After over a decade of hundreds of billions spent to protect the rulers from the various hate groups they have created globally through a war on the world that has rumbled almost continuously since 1893, the woman’s death is yet another footnote in the horror novel known as the United States government. Zombies and vampires don’t hold a candle to the death and destruction wielded and threatened daily by the clown cavalcades that comprise the political ruling class in the US. One can see the zombie-like behavior of most government employees and the vampiric behavior of the taxing entities but the carnage and bloodshed is far worse than any horror novelist could dream up on a daily basis. Skeptics should search for police brutality on YouTube which is only the tip of the iceberg of a phenomenon vastly under-reported.

One would think that after a decade of the billions wasted just mentioned and the enormous bureaucracy in Fatherland Security invested with the august task of protecting the ruling elites, vehicle proof barriers and gates would have not been an afterthought but those who deal with government even at the local level start to realize that, at the end of the day, government is simply a deadly collection of adolescent bullies whose only agenda is the maintenance and expansion of their power over others and the continuation of a very clever money-laundering scheme to vacuum others people’s wealth and resources at the point of a gun into their coffers.

One must also take note that once again, the very well-fed badged warlords of the constabulary most likely reacted the way they did because that what they are paid and incentivized to do. There will be no wrongful death suit. The child will not grow up with her natural mother. The damage will be paid for by the taxpayers, or more likely their grandchildren, since DC is broke by any private standard of accounting.

The self-same uniforms will be retiring to their well-appointed locker rooms to remove their XXXXL uniforms, stop at the bar on the way home and congratulate themselves on saving the nation and continuing the heroic vigil. They will wink and nod at each other that the “turds” (their term of endearment for the scalped taxpayers that pay their wages) just don’t understand the circumstances and the loneliness of the watchtower. They will also be supremely confident that even if the shoot is wrong, the usual stable of hagiographic colon-connoisseur pressitutes will wave the flag and come out of the woodwork to praise the police for what was most certainly a stressful event. If anything the police unions and unlimited immunity clauses in their contracts will help them sleep at night while they dream of the next day possibly getting an opportunity to cuff a six year old, truss up a good-looking woman like a calf at a rodeo or better yet, bust some young college hothead for possessing illegal vegetation.

They will sleep well because of the perverse concept of officer safety where in almost every instance deadly force and maiming can be employed because the cop “thought” he was in danger or perceived jeopardy. Nice work if you can get it. Quite literally, a license to kill in the land of the free.

We all know that under the circumstances, shooting the woman was the only way to go and not disabling the vehicle much like the heroic detectives who perforated the pickup and the two women inside while searching for the “cop-killer” Dorner in California in the recent episode that had the “thin black and blue” line filling their pants in spastic shivering contests of fear at being dealt what they do on a daily basis.

That woman is not dead because anyone was in danger, she is dead because she allegedly endangered the men chasing her. Think about that for an hour. Police start and foment aggression for a living and the “War on Terror” has allowed them to become the rather overweight dominatrices they have always strived to be. Much like Stalin’s Russia and Hitler’s Germany, police behavior is the singular connective tissue that animates and gives life to tyranny. Al Qaeda or whatever vector was responsible for initiating the 9/11 attacks has given new life to the omnipotent state and the terrorists did win.

Not the ones that incinerated themselves in the twin towers but the casual uniformed thugs who don a badge everyday in the 19,000 police agencies across the fruited plain to bust some heads for Caesar.

Grab your air-sickness bags because the government media complex will be spewing much venom about the woman’s instability, her fear of the government and any other tissue of lies that will give the faintest reason for murdering a woman in cold blood.

I do hope that the child grows up to be strong and resistant to state indoctrination and realizes the true reason his mother was taken from him. And I hope the names on the bullets that murdered his mother are burned into his memory.

Black on White Crime. The Numbers Don’t Lie.

September 9, 2013

US Racist and Capital Crimes Have a Black Hue

Colours make a difference

There are far more blacks on Death Row in the United States than whites, and this is attributed by the usual suspects, namely the mainstream media and Lefties, to – you’ll never guess – racism.
This is an exampe of the kind of pro-black, anti-white prejudice that we have to constantly endure from the self-proclaimed “progressives” (who are anything but):

Today people of color continue to be disproportionately incarcerated, policed, and sentenced to death at significantly higher rates than their white counterparts.

The much simpler, Occam-razor-obeying in its parsimony, explanation is that blacks commit disproportionately many more crimes, including capital ones.
American blacks perpetrate almost 8 times more murders per capita than whites.
These are the U.S. Department of Justice official statistics:

The demographic characteristics of homicide victims and offenders were different from the characteristics of the general population.

This means that some race, sex and age groups are disproportionately represented in murder statistics.

Based on available data from 1980 to 2008— Blacks were disproportionately represented as both homicide victims and offenders. The victimization rate for blacks (27.8 per 100,000) was 6 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per 100,000). The offending rate for blacks (34.4 per 100,000) was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites (4.5 per 100,000).
Males represented 77% of homicide victims and nearly 90% of offenders. The victimization rate for males (11.6 per 100,000) was 3 times higher than the rate for females (3.4 per 100,000). The offending rate for males (15.1 per 100,000) was almost 9 times higher than the rate for females (1.7 per 100,000).
Approximately a third (34%) of murder victims and almost half (49%) of the offenders were under age 25. For both victims and offenders, the rate per 100,000 peaked in the 18 to 24 year-old age group at 17.1 victims per 100,000 and 29.3 offenders per 100,000.

So, basically blacks are much more likely to commit murder than whites, in the same way that men and youngsters perpetrate more homicides than women and people over 25. The difference is that, although it is well known and accepted that males and young people offend more, we don’t read or hear in the mainstream media that blacks offend more, even if the public is not stupid and suspects it.
While whites are 82.9% of the American population, they only execute 45.3% of all murders. Conversely, blacks, who are just 12.6% of the population, carry out an astonishing 52.5% of all homicides.
The different rates of victimization (6 times higher for blacks) and offending (8 times higher for blacks) for murder quoted above also belie the “black-on-black” crime narrative which the media love and use to try to shelter blacks from the accusations of racism and hate crimes that would arise spontaneously by looking at the statistics. Blacks commit more attacks on whites than on other blacks. From the New Century Foundation’s report The Color of Crime:

Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Oh, look who is racist now!
The blog of my friend, author Alexander Boot, has some more statistics:

What about interracial crimes then? There’s no shortage of those, according to the FBI study for 2007, cited in Pat Buchanan’s book Suicide of a SuperpowerBlacks also perpetrated 14,000 assaults on white women – with exactly zero committed by white men on black women.

Buchanan himself adds:

If interracial crime is the ugliest manifestation of racism, what does this tell us about where racism really resides — in America?

A reference to the pamphlet Black Skin Privilege, by David Horowitz and John Perazzo, can provide us with the appropriate conclusion by means of the following considerations:

Black sin privilege has created an optical illusion in the liberal culture that white on black attack are commonplace events when in fact there are five times as many black attacks on whites as the reverse. As Horowitz and Perazzo note, in 2010, blacks committed more than 25 times the number of acts of interracial violence than whites did.

Of Course Black Neighborhoods are Crime ridden Hell Holes

August 31, 2013

Study Ranks America’s Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods, All Have One Thing In Common… They Are Predominantly Black…

But of course, thanks to the left, we know this isn’t the biggest problem facing the black community, it’s racist white people who don’t like Obama.

Via The New Observer:

Liberals across America are reported to be aghast at a new survey by real estate website NeighborhoodScout.com which showed that the nation’s 25 most dangerous neighborhoods all just happen to be in black areas.

“Using exclusive data developed by NeighborhoodScout, and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, we here report those specific neighborhoods in America that have the highest predicted rates of violent crime per 1,000 neighborhood residents of all,” that website reported.

“Violent crimes include murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. These neighborhoods are the epicenters of violence in America, where social issues are likely to ignite into violence and spread.”

Serving a Warrant: 1972 vesus Today. The Transformation of Law Enforcement

August 28, 2013

How to serve a warrant: 1972 versus today, by Lt. Harry Thomas

The transformation of law enforcement in my lifetime

Posted on August 15, 2013 by

This past week I was over on Officer.com trying to convince some hot-headed, patriot-hating young cops that the Constitution is actually the law of the land. I failed. One of them refers to open carriers as “attention whores.” I was denounced as a traitor to law enforcement for insisting that gun owners actually have rights that LEO’s are legally and morally bound to respect.

It got me thinking about the great gulf that separates the law enforcement profession that I knew as compared to the one that exists today. I never thought I’d be one of those geezers that says, “I just don’t understand this younger generation today!” But the fact is, I am, and I don’t.

I offer this retrospective and comparison:


HOW TO SERVE A WARRANT
1972

1) The warrant officer at your station gives you a warrant for someone who lives on your beat. It’s for an old drug possession beef. The suspect has no criminal history. Ho-hum.

(Source: WCNC Charlotte)

(Source: WCNC Charlotte)

2) You go to the location. You knock on the door. If no one answers, you leave and come back another time. If your man answers the door, you either arrest him or cite him to court. If you know he’s there (TV is on, curtains move as he peeks out the window at you, etc.) but he won’t answer the door, you call another car to watch the back while you go in the front and get him. If he submits, fine. If he resists you thump him (tasers are years in the future). If he goes for a weapon you shoot him.

Fairly simple, no?

PLAN B: THE CRIME IS SERIOUS, OR THE SUSPECT IS KNOWN TO BE DANGEROUS

1) Bring a few more cops. 2) Bring shotguns.*

*The only full-autos that your department owns are a row of 1921 Thompson sub-machine guns with 50 round drum magazines, and, strangely enough, a single M-3 greasegun, that are standing in a rack in the armory at the Criminal Investigation Section (detective bureau). The last time that one of them was deployed was in the late 1950’s at a late-night stakeout inside a closed Kroger grocery store where a gun battle occurred between stakeout officers and a gang of professional burglars and safecrackers. One of your department’s last old cigar-chewing detectives from the gangster era used the chopper to fatally ventilate the bad guys. The old chatterguns have never been fired for effect since, and never will be again. You are not qualified on them, and know no one in your 1000 man department who is. If, through some miracle, you were to be qualified on one of the old warhorses, the thought of taking one to a warrant service would never even occur to you, and the chances of you being able to sign one out for that purpose would be nil anyway. Cops use alley sweepers, not trench brooms.


HOW TO SERVE A WARRANT
TODAY

1) The warrant officer at your station gives you a warrant for someone who lives on your beat. It’s for an old drug possession beef. The suspect has no criminal history. Drug possession! This guy is obviously a degenerate, and threatens the very fabric of civilization! There’s no time to lose!

SWAT_Entry2) You and your pals put on black ninja outfits. You put black bags over your heads with little slits for your eyes. Now you can do anything you want and no one can identify you afterwards. Hey, it works for the PLO and the IRA, right? You call all of the schools within a fifty mile radius and tell them to go on lockdown.

3) You ride to the scene in an armored personnel carrier (yes, I said an armored personnel carrier!).

4) When you arrive, you jump out and storm the house, bristling with weapons that were, at one time, only used on foreign battlefields to engage implacable enemies of the United States and its interests. Now they’re used against this country’s civilian population.

5) The family’s elderly Labrador, who is now approaching you, tail wagging, is obviously there to guard the drug kingpin’s stash, and presents a grave danger to law enforcement personnel. Hose him with your M-16, or MP5, or whatever squirt gun your agency issues. That way the neighbors will see what a baaaaadass you are.

6) Don’t knock on the door…that’s for sissies. Take it down with a battering ram. Run in and cuss a lot, like they do in those cool movies. Prone everybody out on the floor. When the family’s other dog gets excited and starts barking, blow him away like you did the other one. Do it in front of the kids. That way they’ll learn that this country’s laws must be respected!

7) There are lots of news cameras outside because you called them ahead of time and told them to be there. March your prisoner out and look really grim. Now everyone watching the news can see your armored personnel carrier (yes, I said ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIER!) and they can see how awesome you are in your Ninja outfit.

8) Make sure your department spokesman is there to give an exciting account of your great victory. That way the pretty girl with too much hair mousse can do a “BREAKING NEWS” story about how you’ve struck a stunning blow to the international drug trade.

Now, there are people who are going to think I’m being facetious here. I’m not.

Since the early 80’s, the use of SWAT teams in civilian law enforcement has increased about 1500%. No, those two zeros are not a typo. At least FORTY completely innocent American citizens have been shot to death by rogue police, either because incompetent law enforcement officials hit the wrong address, or because startled homeowners attempted to defend themselves against the masked strangers violently entering their homes and were gunned down. One of them, Kathryn Johnston of Atlanta, was 92 years old.

I well remember the first time my agency pulled one of these stunts and scared an innocent old lady damned near to death. Our chief did the one thing in his career that I actually admired. He sent down word that if any of our personnel ever again kicked down an innocent citizen’s door, that they should send back the search warrant return with their badge pinned to it since they wouldn’t be needing it anymore. It never happened again.

How did this happen? How did we go, in a few short years, from a beat cop knocking on a door to a full scale military assault reminiscent of Iwo Jima, over somebody selling somebody else a bag of weed?

It’s because of the biggest failed social experiment in this country’s history, the Drug War.

I was around in the days of yore when the first drug forfeiture programs started. If you could prove that a guy’s stuff was purchased with the proceeds of drug trafficking, you could take the stuff. It was a great idea, and it hit these guys where they lived. And for a few years the law chugged along that way.

A bounty of cash seized without due process (Source: DEA.gov)

Then law enforcement administrators started thinking about just how much plunder there really was out there. That thing about proving that the guy’s stuff came from drug proceeds was a real drag. They said, “HEY! We have a great idea. Let’s take people’s stuff WITHOUT proving that it came from drug proceeds!!” And they did. The law was changed. Law enforcement didn’t need to convict people of anything. They didn’t even have to CHARGE them with anything. They could just take the stuff!

The way it was explained to me in training was that the stuff was being treated as a separate entity, independent of its owner. In other words, the guy wasn’t being charged with a crime. His car, or his house, or his cash was being charged with a crime. Stuff could now commit crimes, and be convicted of them. A cop could hold a trial at the side of the road, convict someone’s money of drug trafficking, and then put the money in jail.

Agencies scrambled to create drug “interdiction” units to patrol their expressways, such as the I-75 corridor from Florida to Michigan which runs through my city.

Their mandate? Steal money.

In my agency, our higher-ups got so addicted to stolen money that there wasn’t enough in our city to satisfy them. They cut some kind of a deal with our county sheriff and got a team of our guys commissioned as deputy sheriffs. Now they could patrol our expressways all the way to the county line, miles outside city limits.

They’re still doing it. Just last week I drove I-74 into Ohio, and sure enough, there was a Cincinnati police unit just over the state line, nowhere near the city limits, watching for anyone who meets the “profile.”

His mandate? Steal money.

The only way the victim can get his money back is to sue the agency and try to prove it DIDN’T come from drug proceeds. So much for due process and the presumption of innocence. Oftentimes the cost of taking legal action exceeds the amount of money that was taken, so the victim just gives up. This is what agencies count on. Life is GOOD for law enforcement agencies! The only difference between them and pirates is the absence of an ocean. Highway robbery is back in vogue, literally!

So what to do with all that dough? No government agency ever returns money to the treasury. If they have any left at the end of the budget year they have a shopping spree.

What shall we buy? TOYS!!!

SWAT was the latest fad. Buy SWAT stuff!

Soon agencies all over the country were buying military hardware that had never before been needed or used in civilian law enforcement (this was before Congress passed laws allowing the military to GIVE surplus hardware to the cops).

Questions were raised. SWAT is a legitimate concept, and is needed in cases of barricaded persons, hostage situations, etc. But most agencies, even big ones, go for months and sometimes years without experiencing such events. The toys gathered dust. Officials and concerned taxpayers asked, “What do you NEED this stuff for?”

No need? CREATE a need!

And that’s why things that used to be handled in a low-key, non-confrontational way by street-savvy beat cops now require SWAT intervention, including routine service of warrants for insignificant and non-violent offenses.

Are we better off? You decide.

Court of Appeals Slaps Down Power Hungry Obama. I’m sure He will Ignore it Like He does Every Law He Dislikes

Appeals Court: Obama Violating Law on Nuke Site

WASHINGTON August 13, 2013 (AP)
            By MATTHEW DALY Associated Press
Associated Press

 

In a rebuke to the Obama administration, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been violating federal law by delaying a decision on a proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada.

By a 2-1 vote, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered the commission to complete the licensing process and approve or reject the Energy Department’s application for a never-completed waste storage site at Nevada’s Yucca Mountain.

In a sharply worded opinion, the court said the nuclear agency was “simply flouting the law” when it allowed the Obama administration to continue plans to close the proposed waste site 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas.  The action goes against a federal law designating Yucca Mountain as the nation’s nuclear waste repository.

“The president may not decline to follow a statutory mandate or prohibition simply because of policy objections,” Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh wrote in a majority opinion, which was joined Judge A. Raymond Randolph. Chief Judge Merrick B. Garland dissented.

The appeals court said the case has important implications for the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches of government.

“It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive and independent agencies to disregard federal law in the manner asserted in this case by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission,” Kavanaugh wrote. “The commission is simply defying a law enacted by Congress … without any legal basis.”

Veritas Odium Parit – We are Here Folks.

August 13, 2013

Pamela Geller, WND Column: Veritas Odium Parit (Truth begets hate)

Fresh off the presses, my column today at WND:

DEFENDING THE WESTScreen Shot 2013-08-12 at 9.50.44 AM Veritas Odium Parit (Truth begets hate) Exclusive: Pamela Geller exposes ‘irrefutable denial of reality of jihad threat’

We have now gotten to the irreconcilable point in the contemporary  public discourse (or lack thereof) of irrefutable denial of the reality  of the jihad threat. This denial persists no matter what. Newscasters  (both local and national) spout a language of the absurd denying all  connection of jihad with – jihad.

The Fort Hood jihadi, Nidal Malik Hasan, describes himself as a  mujahid (holy warrior) in the cause of Islam, but we are told that his  act of war (and he uses that word – war) has nothing to do with Islam. The Boston Marathon jihad bombers repeatedly explain that their  bombing was an attack designed to “defend Islam,” but we are told that  it had more to do with a right-wing conspiracy or the desperation of two dejected youth, immigrants who had trouble making American friends.

Black on White Racist Crime That The Media Will Not Report

August 12, 2013

Black Mob Of 50 Beats White Man Into A Coma

12Aug

Man In Coma After Black Mob Of 50 Pummels Him – WorldNetDaily

A St. Paul, Minn., man is in a coma today, fighting for his life after a black mob beat him, stripped his clothes off and left him for dead. Even if he recovers, he will have permanent brain damage.

.

Ray Widstrand thought he had nothing to fear from moving into a black neighborhood on the East Side of St. Paul. This young white guy and aspiring filmmaker thought he had nothing to fear when he decided to take a Sunday night stroll through his adopted part of town.

Nothing to fear from a crowd of 50 black people fighting outside a nearby party. So he stopped to check it out. Soon, however, the mob’s attention turned on him.

“The first person who struck him had hit him with a can in a sock,” said one witness in a police report. “The man went down and a ‘whole bunch of little eastside boys’ began to kick the man. She saw them strip him of his pants and go through the pockets.”

When police arrived, the black mob scattered, leaving only Ray behind.

“He had blood coming from his nose and mouth and was unresponsive,” said the police report. “As of August 8th, the prognosis for recovery is slight, and should he live, he will suffer permanent and protracted loss of brain function.”

Four black people have been arrested so far.

At a press conference, Ray’s father said his son did not feel the neighborhood was dangerous. Ray was a good person, a gentle person, a sweet person, said his friends and family. He liked comic books and posing in superhero outfits for gag photos. As an aspiring filmmaker, Ray contributed the opening sequence of a local cable-access news-talk show about “meeting neighbors, making friends.”

This 26-year old free spirit took people as he found them. He hoped for the same. Others in St. Paul know better. At least in that neighborhood.

“This is not super uncommon,” said Bob Fox in the reader comment section of the Pioneer Press. “I have seen a white guy or two get surrounded and beat down and robbed quite a few times. Around the bus stops at 5th and Minnesota and 6th and Minnesota are the worst. Damn right it is a hate crime. They attack like a pack of wolves.”

Many of the episodes of the black mob violence in the Twin Cities region – and the officials denials they are happening at all – are documented in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It.”

In the upcoming edition from WND Books, readers can scan a QR code to see video evidence of black mob violence – much of it from the Twin Cities – on their smart phones as they read about it in the book.

There are dozens of examples in the book where some, like Ray, feel invulnerable to the danger of racial violence. Some have died. They were suffering from what psychologists called an inflated sense of safety in overtly dangerous situations: “Infantile omnipotence.”

“Some people think they can be safe in a dangerous neighborhood,” said Marlin Newburn, a former prison psychologist and author of the upcoming book: “Send Your Kids to Jail: A Manual for the Mutant Parent.” “They are like infants. Preadolescents truly feel themselves as 10 feet tall and bullet proof, and the infantalized teen or adult feels the same way: They do not believe what they have not personally experienced.”

Earlier this year in Chicago, a jury said much the same thing. The city of Chicago paid $22.5 million to the family of a white woman that city jailers released into a black neighborhood. Soon after meeting with a crowd of black people, she was tossed from a seven-story building. Some still say she jumped to avoid a violent attack.

During the trial, Harvard sociology professor Robert Sampson said it can be routinely expected that white people in black neighborhoods are in danger. He called it RAT: Routine Activity Theory. The judge explained RAT by saying the woman “was a white female in a predominantly black, poor neighborhood (and) she had a much higher risk of predatory victimization.”

Judge Frank Easterbrook went on: “She is white and well-off, while the local population is predominantly black and not affluent, causing her to stand out as a person unfamiliar with the environment and, thus, a potential target for crime.”

The woman had approached a black resident of a nearby housing project for help but was turned away.

“The woman got on my floor and tried to get in apartment,” said one resident to the Chicago ABC affiliate. “I said, ‘No, white and black don’t mix.’”

The City of Chicago tried to say that RAT was thinly disguised racial profiling. But at the trial, RAT and race were everywhere – no matter how hard the city worked to keep it out. No matter how dedicated local media were to ignoring it.

If Ray depended on the local media for information, he would not have been aware of an epidemic of racial violence in the Twin Cities region. Many examples of this violence are documented, often with video tape, in “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It.”

. …………………

Last year, a rash of more than a dozen cases of black mob attacks in downtown Minneapolis left at least one man with severe brain injuries as well.

A St. Patrick’s Day mauling from 20 black people left a graphic artist with serious brain injuries and no short-term memory.

An hour before he was beat and kicked into the Intensive Care Unit, 20 black people assaulted an out-of-town couple at the exact same intersection. The Star Tribune was squeamish about reporting the race of the criminals, but City Pages was not:

Melissa screamed as three separate youths came at Kirk, throwing punches. Kirk says he was able to dodge the blows. He remembers one of the assailants smiling while he threw punches, “like it was fun.” As people on the street started to take notice of the attack, the mob dispersed, leaving Kirk one-on-one with a man he says was over 6 feet tall.

“I dodged several of his punches before he ran off,” Kirk said, adding that he himself didn’t punch anyone. “I believe that if it wasn’t for my wife’s screaming I would have been seriously injured.”

Thankfully, he ended up with nothing more than a swollen neck. Melissa, a 33-year-old school teacher, was pushed, and one of the assailants burned her hand with a cigarette, she says.

After the mob dispersed, Kirk and Melissa made their way back to the Marquette. There, they talked to a police officer about the incident.

Wrote Melissa in an email: The “cop wasn’t that interested in taking a report, since we didn’t have descriptions – just African-American… [I] wonder how many people have been attacked, since our story isn’t even part of the stats.”

There were others, lots of others, at the Mall of America, St. Paul and other places throughout the area.

But the daily papers are loathe to report the race of the perpetrators or how they occur from black mobs exponentially out of proportion.

In September 2011, a group of black people attacked a mobile alcoholic beverage cart in Minneapolis – stealing, threatening. The newspapers dutifully reported the crime, and dutifully ignored the race of the attackers – except for the University of Minnesota newspaper, which in its early editions identified the attackers by race, but removed it in later editions.

Which is how it should be, said Minneapolis police spokesman William Palmer:

“The MPD does not track arrestees by race,” said Palmer. “And frankly, no, it doesn’t matter. We arrest and prepare criminal cases for consideration of prosecution for those people who choose to break the law. Race has nothing to do with it.”

Maybe the City of Chicago should have called Palmer as a witness. Maybe it could have saved the city $22.5 million from a civil judgment that said otherwise.

As the attacks proliferate, so do the denials that race has anything to do with the attacks. But more and more people in the Twin Cities region are wondering what is going on. They also wonder when local media and public officials are going to start to tell the truth about it.

“A gang of African-American males and females beat a white male nearly to death, and it isn’t a hate crime?” said Tiffany Johnson in the reader comment section of the Pioneer Press. “And why isn’t the NAACP speaking out about this terrible crime?”

“The media continues to dismay with their clear double standard in news coverage regarding their agenda in matters of race,” said Keith Olson. “The media loves to sensationalize white-on-black victimization and literally turns a blind eye when the races are reversed. I am not surprised whatsoever that whites are finally showing their displeasure with this sort of distortion when it comes to the propaganda they are fed.”

“If you look at the crime stats, the vast majority of such incidents are committed by young black males,” said Jim Russell. “We can’t help them solve this problem if we won’t admit it exists. Don’t make it worse by falling for the PC media narratives.”

The beating took place Sunday, August 4, but local residents did not learn about it from local media for almost a week. That also brought down a heaping of scorn on local media.

This comment found at the web site of the local ABC affiliate: “These losers stomped on this man’s head and practically beat him to death!” said Nicole Rhoades. “Why did it take so long to get news coverage on this story?”

George Zimmerman Gets out of His Vehicle to Rescue a Family Trapped inside Their Vehicle

George Zimmerman to the Rescue –or — “Once again, the Most Hated Man in America gets out of his vehicle.”

George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding to Rescue Family Trapped in SUV – ABC News

 

George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue a family who was trapped in an overturned vehicle, police said today.

Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of Dana and Mark Gerstle and their two children, who were trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla. at approximately 5:45 p.m. Thursday, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement……  His lawyers said Zimmerman has been wearing a bullet-proof vest when he ventures out in public.

Zimmerman’s parents told ABC News’ Barbara Walters they too have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home. – ABC News

The family that was rescued:

They’re white so I guess it doesn’t count.  Or, as someone has noted, did Zimmerman attack the SUV because it was black and had a hood?

“NBC has footage of the incident that it’s running backwards, so that Zimmerman is shown pushing the family back into the upside-down car.”

“The most important thing to understand about Zimmerman is he is an example of what the evil liberals will do to any one of us, out of the blue, and the consequences be damned. The people on our side that refuse to see that the Left is evil, from top to bottom, and to a man, are the weak-sisters in our camp that allow our side to find reason to comprise with The Left.

“Until The Left picks you out of a crowd for no reason, only then will the weak-sisters in our camp finally understand they routinely destroy innocent people for fun and profit. The weak-sisters think ( or is it hope?) if they are careful enough they will be spared.

“They think, if they follow the rules, they will be spared.

“They think, if I am nice enough to a few liberals, I will be spared.

“They’re fools. The Left will attack you and accuse you of walking on your hands around Mars and hundreds of ‘witnesses’ will come out of the woodwork to declare they can also testify to your use of the N-word, beating a child, or anything else. However, until each of the weak-sisters are the target of The Left they will not recognize how fictitious ALL of The Left’s charges ultimately have been. And your fellow weak-sisters will stand back and wonder why you weren’t more careful so it wouldn’t have happened to today’s target.

“There are no nice liberals. They will, to a man, sacrifice you the moment it is necessary for them. The person you think is an exception just hasn’t been tested yet. They will abandon you. They have evil in their heart. They’ve ignored 100 million dead and 100 years of history.

Hate Crimes Indeed…From the Left

Hate Crimes Indeed

By Jeffrey T. Brown

Now that a jury has considered the best evidence the State of Florida could offer against George Zimmerman, and that it did not prove that Zimmerman was either the aggressor or an intentional killer, the left has a problem.  It invested what little credibility it had entirely in using George Zimmerman as a distraction from the horrific violence in black communities.  The consequence, we were told before and have been told since, is that it is open season for non-blacks against blacks, and this case exemplifies how dangerous it is for blacks when they merely buy Skittles or wear a hoodie.  We are forever being told by the left about how awful this country is for anyone who is not white.  Blacks are being gunned down in the streets by non-blacks.  Except they’re not.  Muslims are being discriminated against wholesale, and are afraid to leave their homes.  Except they’re not.  Gun owners are violent crazies bent on mass murder, except they’re not.  Christians are trying to force their religion on us.  Except they’re not.  Tea Party members are racists and violent.  I believe the Breitbart reward for evidence of the accusations of tea party racism remains unclaimed, even in this day of cell phone cameras and video. At the root of these accusations is hatred by the left of its political and ideological enemies.  They hate the lot of us. Certainly there are some dim bulbs who actually believe the lies, but we all know that blacks are not being gunned down in the streets by non-blacks anywhere in this country.  What made the Zimmerman case so useful to the race-baiters and hate mongers is that it was, unfortunately, the only example which presented itself despite years of decrying endless, violent, and invisible, racism in our country at large.  And, as Eric Holder has said before and since the Zimmerman verdict, we must not waste the opportunity for that “honest” debate on race which he has been avoiding since 2008.

Indeed, lethal non-black on black violence is so infrequent a phenomena in this supposedly uber-racist country with a black president, that when it became clear that the facts were not quite as the hate mongers could wish, it became necessary to distort them to fit the narrative that would then be spoon fed to the left’s mindless cult members.  What happened in Florida might have been a hate crime, or many, but not in terms of what George Zimmerman did.  The racial hate crimes were committed by the left, as usual, and they are so numerous and offensive that they render anyone protesting the Zimmerman verdict appear beyond “ign’ant”, in the angry words of the Rev. Sharpton.

The left’s first disappointment came when Zimmerman turned out not to be white, and not Jewish, since we know how the Rev. Jackson and the Rev. Sharpton feel about them.  Thus, it became necessary to make Zimmerman a new being, born just for this case: the White Hispanic. Once it started to become clear just what sort of young man Trayvon Martin had become in life, it became necessary to portray him with complete and utter dishonesty in death.  Instead of being the fully grown 17 year old thug flashing the middle finger, or the trash-talking punk his social media entries show him to be, or the person caught with burglary tools and women’s jewelry, or the dope-grower seen in photos, or the guy who punched a school bus driver, we were treated to an endless lie of Trayvon Martin, the sainted child who was only buying Skittles.  His younger, angelic face was displayed incessantly, even after more recent photos and exploits surfaced, making clear the left’s deceit.  Trayvon Martin was not the person the left needed us to believe he was for their new and improved racist murder narrative.  Isn’t it ironic that Martin turned out to be exactly the kind of person Zimmerman feared was casing his neighborhood? Similarly, George Zimmerman was not who the left needed him to be, so NBC did what NBC has done so often in the past in service to the left.  With malice, they created the falsified evidence they needed.  Their manipulated 911 recording suddenly was played to the entire country.  There. Now George Zimmerman was undeniably a racist. The white Chief of Police in Sanford, and his officers, seemed unwilling to accuse Zimmerman of murder without evidence.  His lack of hatred cost him his job.  He was replaced with a black Chief of Police who knew what was expected of him. The prosecutor who did not see enough evidence to obtain a conviction, or even an indictment, was also replaced with someone who understood their duty to the agenda, rather than the Constitution, the law of Florida and its citizens.  Liberal hatred trumps ethics every time. The Department of Justice got in on the act, playing an active role in fomenting public anger and hatred toward someone as to whom there wasn’t enough evidence to arrest or indict.  The president decided that if he had a son, he would look like the baby-faced child long outgrown by the real Trayvon Martin.  Of course, it is possible the president was referring to the pot-growing, pot-smoking young man Martin had become.  They certainly would have been able to share some heartwarming father-son moments remembering their favorite bongs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson certainly did what they do best.  They swept in, told lies in angry tones to people conditioned to believe them, solidified their reputations in some circles as saviors and in others as opportunists, and left deception and hatred in their wakes. And now that a jury has managed to somehow see through all of that to the truth, the haters and liars are outraged.  Holder is considering civil rights or “hate crime” prosecution of Zimmerman, whose malice has already been adjudged lacking.  Professional athletes tweet of revenge against Zimmerman, and actors profess outrage that the railroading failed to cause this gun-toting, practically-white guy to lose his freedom for a racial crime the left fabricated out of whole cloth from the very beginning. If George Zimmerman had been black, we would have known nothing about Trayvon Martin’s decision to initiate a surprise attack in the dark, thinking he could easily injure or kill George Zimmerman, whose crime up to that point was being a “creepy-ass cracka” who followed  Martin as a potential homosexual predator, as Rachel Jeantel told him just prior to his death. Was Martin’s attack on Zimmerman and anti-gay hate crime? The left has absolutely no problem with blacks killing blacks.  That is the acceptable price paid for the dependency wrought by destruction of the black community through liberal policies.  As long as blacks keep voting 97% for Democrats, the left couldn’t care less how many of them kill each other.  The left has no capacity for the honesty needed for that debate. There has certainly been hate afoot in Sanford, Florida, and across the country.  But as is so often the case, it is perpetrated by those who congratulate themselves on their tolerance, open-mindedness, and higher intellect.  While the left proudly chants and tweets its unabashed hatred for someone who used a gun to defend himself against a fictional “child” who could simply have gone home untouched, their silent bigotry enables countless murders committed by their dependable voting constituency.  As is always true with the left, the ends justify the means.

Meanwhile, isn’t it past time to stop pretending that the left and its agenda is not synonymous with hate?

Bill Cosby Says “You Can’t Prove” Zimmerman Is Racist… Outrage Ensues…

Via Orlando Sentinel:

Bill Cosby will talk guns, the prosecution and the media in the George Zimmerman case. But he has no interest in discussing racial profiling.

In an interview with the “DomNnate Radio Show,” the TV legend was adamant on the race issue.

“This racial stuff goes into a whole bunch of discussion which has stuff that you can’t prove,” Cosby said in an interview Tuesday. “You can’t prove somebody is a racist unless they really come out and do the act and is found to be that.”

Keep reading…

As you can imagine, Cosby straying off the plantation isn’t going over so well.

[A]pparently, in Cosby Land, profiling, stalking, menacing, attacking and ultimately fatally shooting a Black child in the heart because he’s Black and wearing a hoodie — so he must be a criminal — doesn’t qualify as being racist.

Cosby said that the issue was simple: “the prosecution didn’t tell their story well, and they lost.”

Charged With A Hate Crime, Just 24% Think He Was Motivated By Racism…

Bad news for the race pimps.

21% Think Justice Department Should Charge Zimmerman With a Hate Crime — Rasmussen

Most Americans don’t believe George Zimmerman was motivated by racism and do not believe he should be charged with a hate crime for shooting black teenager Trayvon Martin. But as with nearly every question regarding this case, there is wide racial disagreement.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of all American Adults believe Zimmerman’s actions that led to Martin’s death were motivated primarily by racism. Fifty-four percent (54%) think the Hispanic Neighborhood Watch volunteer was chiefly motivated instead by a concern about burglaries in the neighborhood.  Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure.

Mother Of Trayvon Martin Plays Race Card On Jurors: They Didn’t See My Son As Human…

More baseless slander.

Via Raw Story:

Trayvon Martin’s mother said Thursday night that she didn’t believe the six women jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman were able to imagine her son as their own son.

Sybrina Fulton told CNN’s Anderson Cooper she was shocked when she heard the verdict.

“The reason I say that is because I just look at people as people, and I thought for sure that the jury looked at Trayvon as an average teenager that was minding his own business, that wasn’t committing any crime, that was coming home from the store and was feet away from where he was actually going,” she said. “But when I heard the verdict I kind of understand the disconnect, in that maybe they didn’t see Trayvon as their son, they didn’t see Trayvon as a teenager, they didn’t see Trayvon as just a human being that was minding his own business.” [...]

“I thought the human side of them would say, ‘Listen this was a kid, this guy made a mistake,’” Fulton said.

Kane made her announcement at the Constitution Center in Philadelphia, a sort of theme park for equality that is the ideal setting for prominent Democrats to accuse the nation of bigotry. Kane said she would not defend the 1996 state law in court because it was “wholly unconstitutional,” never mind that violating her oath and usurping the powers of the legislature are unconstitutional.

Just Another Law-Abiding Citizen of Beautiful Downtown Realville

Posted on | July 17, 2013

“Fred, I’m gonna be very honest with you here: People like you are a problem. . . . “You can get mad at me because I’m pointing things out, but you’re just getting mad at fact, and you’re making extrapolations or interpretations that I didn’t make nor intend. I’m not trying to distract anybody. I’m the mayor of Realville — and what I mean by that is, I live in the world of reality. “The truth is all I care about.” – Rush Limbaugh, July 16, 2013

Having been mentioned two days in a row on the most popular radio program in the world is kind of cool. All I did was write a 700-word summary of reporting and research, most of which had previously appeared at The Last Refuge a.k.a. The Conservative Treehouse.

“People like you are a problem,” Rush told his caller Fred yesterday and, as usual, Rush was absolutely right. Outsource your thinking to the media, jump to a conclusion based on what other people are telling you, and then refuse to consider the possibility that there may be facts that contradict the pre-fabricated conclusion you have been spoon-fed by a pack of hired liars. Above all, never pay attention to the demonstrable pattern of deception, the way in which all the artful falsehoods and deliberate distortions point you toward the same political prejudice: Vote Democrat!

Are these media people ideological liberals, or are they just Democrats? How do we distinguish liberal bias from crude partisanship?

You have to wonder about that, when you see everyone on CNN nodding in agreement while Rachel Jeantel recalls how she warned Trayvon Martin that the “creepy-ass cracker” George Zimmerman might be a gay pedophile predator.

Holy stereotypes, Batman! On what planet do liberals so much as acknowledge the possibility of the existence of gay pedophilia? But let this lecture be delivered by a 19-year-old black high-school dropout — “Run, Trayvon! Dat creepy-ass cracker gonna rape you!” — and all the “liberals” react as if this were the apex of wisdom.

Try to imagine if something like this had been said on CNN by a Republican politician or some redneck Baptist preacher who talked like Larry the Cable Guy. Outrage! Homophobia!

But when Rachel Jeantel says it, Piers Morgan doesn’t bat an eye, his liberal audience nods in agreement, and anyone who points out that Rachel Jeantel is an idiot . . . RAAAAACIST!

There’s no way to win. If you point out the double-standards and hypocrisy, this only proves you’re a “right-wing extremist,” see?

Liberals are always like Fred, who objected to Rush Limbaugh’s reference to the facts of Trayvon Martin’s juvenile criminality. They’re prejudiced — they’ve bought into the pre-fabricated conclusion — and your attempts to enlighten their benighted minds are rejected as signifying that you are a bad person, because only bad people dispute the liberal worldview that leads to false conclusions.

Bad motives (mala fides) are always ascribed to conservatives. You must be a racist, a sexist, a homophobe or some other kind of evil person, says the liberal, or otherwise you’d be liberal, too. And that kind of “argument” (the scare-quotes necessary because these are not actually arguments in the sense of formal logic) is entirely acceptable to people who have never set foot in Realville. (No low-information voters here.)

The problem, of course, is that liberals dishonestly attempt to persuade us that they possess a monopoly on intellectual prestige. It’s like the global-warming consensus: If you carefully purge from the ranks of “respectable” scientists everyone who disagrees with the consensus — demonizing dissent — then it becomes possible to say with a straight face that All Respectable Scientists Agree.

“The science is settled!”

And it’s a goddamned tautology.

Whatever happened to skepticism, huh? Whatever happened to the admiration of intellectual curiosity and the mischievous idea that perhaps the status quo Conventional Wisdom is wrong?

Why, for example, are educated people willing to accept without question the idea that what happened to Trayvon Martin can only be explained as a consequence of racism? Is it not possible that Trayvon’s own ignorance contributed to his death? Even if we stipulate that George Zimmerman was wrong to pursue Trayvon — “We don’t need you to do that,” as the 911 dispatcher said — was this teenager completely without fault in that fatal encounter?

Three days after a jury declared Zimmerman not guilty of murder, CNN continued its wall-to-wall coverage of the case Tuesday, misinforming its audience about basic facts. Over and over, CNN’s hosts and commentators brought up Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, despite the fact that this law enacted in 2005 had nothing to do with the Zimmerman trial. But issues that may have a lot to do with the trial, the networks are willing to ignore. The one thing that CNN and the rest of the media establishment have refused to discuss is the path that brought a teenager to his fatal encounter with the neighborhood watch captain of that townhouse community in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, Florida. This is perhaps the most important fact of the entire story, in part because it may explain why the teenager was so disturbed at being followed by George Zimmerman. Trayvon was from Miami Gardens, the largest majority-black city in Florida, where the population is 76 percent black and 22 percent Hispanic and “creepy-ass crackers” are quite rare. Crime is commonplace in Miami Gardens — the crime rate is about 70 percent higher than the national average — and Trayvon Martin was one of the criminals. . . .

Angela Corey Should Be Fired, Disbarred, Imprisoned and Sued Into Bankruptcy

Posted on | July 17, 2013

The more I learn about this woman, the more I hate her: She got George Zimmerman charged with murder based on a misleading probable cause claim, rather than getting an indictment from a grand jury. Also, Angela Corey is an evil vindictive bitch:

In 2008, Corey was elected state attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit, taking over from Harry Shorstein — the five-term state attorney who had fired her from his office a year earlier, citing “long-term issues” regarding her supervisory performance. When Corey came in, she cleaned house. Corey fired half of the office’s investigators, two-fifths of its victim advocates, a quarter of its 35 paralegals, and 48 other support staff — more than one-fifth of the office. Then she sent a letter to Florida’s senators demanding that they oppose Shorstein’s pending nomination as a U.S. attorney. “I told them he should not hold a position of authority in his community again, because of his penchant for using the grand jury for personal vendettas,” she wrote.

Did I mention that Angela Corey is an evil vindictive bitch?

An information technology specialist who say he was fired for exposing information that he said Florida prosecutors attempted to withhold from George Zimmerman‘s defense attorneys will file a lawsuit against his former employers. Ben Kruidbos was fired after testifying at a June 6 hearing that photos and text messages from Trayvon Martin‘s cell phone were not turned over to the defense, as required by law. Kruidbos’ attorney Wesley White told Reuters news agency that he will be filing a whistleblower lawsuit against the office of Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda, who were appointed to prosecute the case against Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who fatally shot Martin in February 2012.

Read the rest at Viral Read. My goal in life is to see Angela Corey serve a stint in prison — maybe on a corruption charge, but any felony will do — and then in about 2019, she’ll be out on probation, taking orders as a waitress at a Waffle House beside an I-95 off-ramp, and living in a nearby rent-by-the-week efficiency apartment.

She’s an evil vindictive bitch. And I’m a neutral objective journalist.

Affirmative Action Gone Wild: Ivy League Professor Denounces God as a Racist

You have to pay the big bucks to attend an Ivy League university. But it’s worth it to acquire an education from the greatest minds of our time — like Anthea Butler, who insightfully observes that George Zimmerman not being found guilty of murder for defending himself against the young hoodlum who was bashing his head against the pavement proves that God is a “white racist.”

Anthea Butler, an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Religious Studies, made the unusual comments in a blog post released on Monday on ReligionDispatches.org, where she is a regular contributor.

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us,” she wrote in the post. “As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god.

“As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men,” she added.

In her profundity, Anthea — who is an associate chair of the prestigious university’s religious studies department and a regular contributor for MSNBC and CNN — divines that Christianity is to blame for God’s wickedness.

“As a historian of American and African-American religion, I know that the Trayvon Martin moment is just one moment in a history of racism in America that, in large part, has its underpinnings in Christianity and its history,” she wrote.

Apparently Anthea is just barely bright enough to understand that the more she denounces Western Civilization and pretends to be oppressed, the more she will be showered with privileges. She spews her bizarre venom for the same reason a lab rat presses a lever that releases food pellets.

What are the odds that someone too dumb even to write proper English could achieve the status and income of an Ivy League professor without being “oppressed”? Take away her sacred victim status, and her brain power wouldn’t have gotten her through junior high. She would be swabbing toilets at the local Motel 6 if not for moonbattery, so don’t blame her for spewing it.

Blame the white liberals who set morons like this on pedestals in order to debase our culture with the ultimate cultural Marxist goal of destroying it.

In case you were short on reasons to wish the media would stop shoving this skanky and useless woman down our throats…

Kim Kardashian is the unfortunate spawn of unpunished murderer O.J. Simpson’s defense attorney and personal friend Robert George Kardashian.

The most obvious difference between the Zimmerman and Simpson cases is that the former was defending himself from a scumbag who was trying to kill him, whereas the latter used a knife to carve up two completely innocent people. Another difference is that O.J. got off because he is black; Zimmerman continues to be persecuted by the federal government despite having been found not guilty  because he is not black.
