The New Black Panthers: Racism Defined

Back during the 2008 election, there was at least one polling place (and probably a bunch more) where Philadelphia Black Panthers were intimidating potential voters. The DOJ decided to drop the voter corruption case against the New Black Panther Party.  Why? Because they are a black organization (that means no white folks allowed.)  No crime with the membership requirement – the crime is with the voter intimidation.

Here is a great video highlighting Samir Shabazz.  Sorry, I meant to say KING Samir Shabazz.  My bad!

What a great example of a massive racist (you know, you don’t have to be white to be a racist!)  I wonder what would have happened if some white dude said that white people should kill some black people.  It already happens – all of us white dudes look down on the White Power and KKK garbage.  They are all racist rednecks.

Mr. Shabazz, er, sorry, KING Shabazz has every right to spout his hateful rhetoric, just like all the racist white dudes.  This is America, if you want to hate your brother for the color of his skin, that is allowed.  No crime there.  I don’t agree with that thinking, but there is not a crime there.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Racists in SEIU – No Kidding!

Here in St. Louis we have witnessed the racism displayed (on video) by members of the SEIU union. We now have a SEIU Vice President indicating the same type of things from the white members. The actual term he uses is “white union members are so f***ing rabidly racist.” How nice.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If you are curious about the video from the beating of a black man (Kenneth Gladney) outside a health care forum put on by Rep. Russ Carnahan, here is the video:

Classy!

Of course, this is just my opinion.

I Confess, I’m in the Tea Party Cult

I honestly didn’t realize I was in a cult.  I guess in addition to the fact that I’m supposedly a racist and a homophobe (yes, I’ve been called both for some reason), I’m also in the Tea Party Cult (or Teabagger if you choose to use the sexual term coined by the wacknut left.)

Bill Maher had dubbed those who oppose taxes and growing the government who decide to attend a Tea Party protest are not really in a movement, but are a part of a cult.  I found that really interesting since I went to one of the first Tea Party events held in St. Louis last February (and brought my kids) along with one held on April 15, 2009. Actually, I never thought that I was in a movement but rather concerned about the out of control spending from not only the left, but also the right.

I didn’t realize my taxes have gone down.  I must have missed this one, but I do live in the Socialist Republic of Illinois so maybe this doesn’t apply to me.  I suppose we’ll feel the real pinch when the Bush tax cuts expire next year.  Ouch!

From NewsBusters:

The teabaggers, they’re not a movement. They’re a cult, and I’m going to prove it. You know someone has fallen into a cult if you see these signs: One. Cults have their own vocabulary. Now, I don’t speak sh**kicker, but I know that in their world, freedom means guns, diplomacy means weakness, elitist means reader, and socialist means black.

Two. Cults tend to populate from within.encouraging members to have huge broods of children and to give them strange names, like Moonbeam, and Trig.

And three, cult members always attribute all of their problems to one simple explanation: [picture of Obama with Hitler moustache].

Well there you have it.  Me: Illiterate Racist Hick, Unabashed Homophobe & Cult Member.

Attention Teabagger Cultists: I have received word from above that the great Tea Bag is coming back to take all the good Tea Baggers back to Hickland to live eternity shooting guns, chewing tobacco and smashing things with Monster Trucks.  Sounds like a blast!  Hooo Weee.  See you there.

Of course, that is just my opinion.

Isn’t All Crime a Hate Crime?

obamasigningToday, President Obama signed into law the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.  This bill was buried in the Defense Appropriations bill. 

A logical American, or any breathing human being for that matter, would wonder why this was not pushed forward on its own merits.  Why was this buried in a $680 billion defense appropriations bill?   I’ll tell you why, it would have never passed otherwise.

From the USA Today:  

The new law basically expands existing hate-crime protections to outlaw attacks based on sexual orientation or gender, in addition to race, color, religion or national origin. 

In a later ceremony devoted to the new law, Obama told supporters, “No one in America should ever be afraid to walk down the street holding the hand of the person they love.” He cited statistics that in these past 10 years, there have been more than 12,000 hate crimes based on sexual orientation.

“We will never know how many incidents were never reported at all,” Obama said.

Opponents called the hate-crimes bill unnecessary, noting that Shepard’s and Byrd’s attackers were convicted in state criminal courts. Some critics objected to the inclusion of hate-crimes legislation in a defense budget bill.

“The president has used his position as commander-in-chief to advance a radical social agenda, when he should have used it to advance legislation that would unequivocally support our troops,” said U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., chairman of the House Republican Conference. 

Pence also argued that the law could be used to curb free speech rights, such as with religions that consider homosexuality a sin.    

According to an AP story, “The hate crimes measure came as part of legislation (defense appropriation bill) that Obama also touted for other reasons: a crackdown on careless military spending.”   How about just cutting down on that spending the normal way and not including unnecessary legislation unrelated to a bill meant to fund the military efforts?  I realize this is the way things are done in Washington, but isn’t that part of the problem?

The last time I checked hate was hate no matter what the person looks like or his sexual orientation.  A crime is a crime and tagging it with some arbitrary title is not only unnecessary but subject to interpretation by the legal system.  In other words, “I’m going to read your mind and determine if you are a racist homophobic loser.”  Ridiculous.

Scenarios: What if a Muslim kills a Christian because he is not Muslim?  What if a black man kills a white man just for being white?  What if a homosexual kills a heterosexual for not being gay?  Far fetched and idiotic maybe, but have we thought of these scenarios or just the obvious ones?  If a hate crime can be attached to the cases expressed in the various news stories why not my examples? 

No good can come from this and is a travesty to the justice system. 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Congresswoman Diane Watson is a Lovin’ on Fidel Castro

I really hope this type of idiocy is a minority opinion amongst liberal politicians. 

How are these people elected?  If I lived in her district I might run as a democrat to get this lady out of office. (just kidding)

I wonder what Ms. Watson would think of a conservative leaning black American running for the highest office. 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Glenn Beck Advertiser Boycott A Potential Gold Mine

beckpointingGlenn Beck has come under excruciating fire for expressing his opinion.  He has been doing this for quite some time on both radio and tv, but the left is just now catching up with him (probably because his ratings are through the roof.)  The video clip below, from Fox and Friends, gives a quick snippet of the “controversy”, but you can watch a longer clip from his show here.

 

From TV By The Numbers 8-26-09:

Though a little scandal might alienate advertisers, it’s pure ratings gold. Last night Glenn Beck had over 3 million viewers at 5pm, second only to O’Reilly for the night.  But, Beck had more 25-54 viewers than O’Reilly (888K to 876K).  I don’t watch or really even care about the cable news wars, but still…wow. Even though Beck airs before prime time,  when there are fewer people watching TV, he had the most 25-54 viewers in the cable news world for the night.

 The most interesting point is that his guest that evening was was Rush Limbaugh so I’m sure that had something to do about the high ratings.  These ratings are of course not long term, just one night, but Becks numbers have been increasing for quite some time.   This is despite a multitude of advertisers dropping their ads from Fox News and an all out assault from the left-wing nuts. 

I have always liked Glenn Beck.  He’s a little unhinged, but so am I, so I feel a kindred spirit.  I am unable to catch his show since it comes on at 4pm in the Midwest, but I occasionally catch his radio show.  I personally don’t care what the left pundits say or think about him, it won’t change my thoughts.  Sounds like millions of others don’t care about their opinions either.  Advertising follows numbers and they will trickle back as time goes on.  In this time of economic hardship, businesses can’t afford to be picky with their messenger because of a few activist groups.  The storm will pass and these linguini spined advertisers will come back in droves.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
