Coulter: Great Moments in Racism — the Dash Cam Tapes

If you were watching MSNBC last Sunday, you may have seen Imani Perry, professor of African-American studies at Princeton University, and wondered, as I did, Why do I know that name? Professor Perry’s delightfully original point was that we need to “think in serious contemplative ways about the depth of American inequality.” So perhaps we know her from her incisive commentary! I certainly haven’t heard anyone talk about American inequality. It really made me think. But then I suddenly realized it’s that Imani Perry! The one who nearly destroyed a policeman’s life by falsely accusing him of racism! Back in February 2016, Perry launched a series of tweets, alleging the following: — She was “arrested in Princeton Township for a single parking ticket three years ago.” — She was cuffed — FOR A PARKING TICKET — and not allowed to make a phone call “so that someone would know where I was.” — “I was afraid,” she wrote. “Many women who look like me have a much more frightening end to such arrests.” Oh my gosh, she could have been killed! — She was “working to move from being shaken to renewing my commitment to the struggle against racism & carcerality.” Naturally, her story became instant international news. The president of Princeton leapt to her defense, firing off a letter to the chief of police, demanding an investigation. (I know Perry is a professor, but you’d think that, by now, more people would say, Let’s wait for the facts.) Perry attributed the universal acceptance of her story to her “small build” and her association with “elite universities” such as Princeton. Just a thought, but it might also be because she’s black. The Princeton police spent several days investigating before finally releasing the dashcam footage. I’m hoping they dragged it out to allow public outrage to reach maximum velocity. Perry wasn’t arrested “for a single parking ticket three years ago.” After being stopped for going 67 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, officers ran her name and discovered her license had been suspended. She was arrested for driving with a suspended license. The officer was almost comically polite to the professor. He gently explained to Perry that because of her suspended license, “What you’re going to have to do is come with us, it’s $130, so if you have that money we’ll be able to post and we’ll be able to get you right back out.” He offered to drop her at the university, saying, “You really shouldn’t be driving because of your suspended license.” He informed her that police are required to cuff anyone being transported to the station and assured her that no one would have to know. As for not being allowed to make a phone call, he clearly told her that once they got to the station, “You can make as many phone calls and texts as you want.” A policeman was kind to her, so Perry turned around and accused him of racism, secure in the knowledge that no one would dare challenge whatever she said. It would have been firing offense for him, but not for her. She is still gainfully employed as a Princeton professor — and a sought-after guest on MSNBC and NPR! (It must be because of her “small build.”) There are dozens of these cases. Tweet me your favorites! Here’s another, from one of our blessed immigrants, Minati Roychoudhuri, professor at Capital Community College in Connecticut. (Really! That’s not one of my proposed new names for Yale, currently named for a slave trader.) In 2015, Roychoudhuri (B.A., M.A., Utkal University, India) wrote a letter to the commissioner of public safety, as well as “the Senator and Legislator of my constituency” (she teaches English), claiming a policeman had racially profiled her. Her letter said: “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me. Further, the officer had checked ‘Hispanic’ in the race category in the infraction ticket.” The professor also noted that, “I teach about diversity and the negative impact of racial profiling, I have now become a target of the same insidious behavior! It is easy to connect the dots with the nationwide racial profiling which has led to serious consequences.” (It’s such a boon to have immigrants teaching about the horrors of “racial profiling” in America because we can’t get anyone to do that!) Then police released the dashcam footage. Below are relevant portions from the transcript. I didn’t include the part where the officer asked Roychoudhuri if she spoke English because he never did that. It was a bald-faced lie. Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today? Roychoudhuri: No. Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration. … Officer: Ma’am. So I wrote you the infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: Please, you know, I probably crossed over there, and that’s why I did it. … Obviously I did that. … My (record) is absolutely clean. Officer: OK. So I wrote you an infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: The answer date is on the front of it and the instructions are on the back of it. Roychoudhuri: Wait, what? Officer: It’s a mail-in infraction. All you have to do is mail in, either a check or money order, and mail it in. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: All right. Roychoudhuri: Thank you. Guess who’s still teaching at Capital Community College and paid by Connecticut taxpayers? Our sacramental immigrant! (NOTE TO MSNBC: Roychoudhuri would make another excellent guest to discuss racism in America.) After the 2014 killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri — a justified killing according to everyone, including Obama’s Department of Justice — the big demand was that police be required to wear bodycams. OOPS! That was a miscalculation. Turns out body cameras are the best thing that ever happened to cops. Which reminds me: The public has still not seen the bodycam footage from the officers arresting George Floyd, explaining how he ended up on the ground. Maybe we should wait for the facts.

Agreed..  Thanks to conservative firebrand Ann Coulter for the common-sense smack upside the head.

Young black thug accused of shoving elderly white NYC woman has been arrested over 100 times

A career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name was busted for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant — leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood. The injured elder, a Bronx native named Geraldine, spoke to The Post on Tuesday after cops arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, and charged him with attacking her. “I thought a brick hit me or something hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant,” Geraldine, who asked that her last name be withheld for safety reasons, said of the attack. “Blood was coming out, not spurting blood, but blood was dripping.” Geraldine, who has lived in Manhattan for more than 50 years, was on her way to Duane Reade when Brimmage allegedly shoved her to the ground near Third Avenue and East 16th Street in Gramercy Park at about 3:30 p.m. Friday. She slammed against the fire hydrant and lay on the ground until a passerby called 911 and medics rushed her to nearby Beth Israel Hospital. The former teacher, who never married but is dating an 89-year-old lawyer, said her physical wounds were relatively minor and have since healed — but the mental toll has been much more severe. “Mostly I’m shaken. My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant — or where he hit me, I don’t know,” she said. “Mainly it’s psychological — just the fear of going out on the street,” she added. “This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone. So my super’s trying to find somebody who will walk me to a park nearby or to the supermarket, that kind of thing. So that’s the problem.” Brimmage was busted by cops Tuesday and charged with assault after investigators recognized him from video footage of the attack, authorities said. The frequent offender has now been arrested 103 times since 2005 for petty crimes and sex offenses, sources said. The creep was convicted of sexual misconduct in 2012, then arrested for two sex offenses in 2014, police sources said. In May of that year, he was busted for exposing and fondling himself on an East Harlem street, the sources said. Just months later, in July, he was arrested for grabbing a woman’s behind at a Third Avenue deli. In 2017, he failed to notify authorities that he changed his address and had to register as a sex offender, state records show. At the time of Friday’s attack, Brimmage had three open criminal cases in the city, according to court records. He was arrested Feb. 17 for a misdemeanor assault and harassment charge for an incident that happened in The Bronx a week earlier, according to records. He was released without bail in the case. He was busted in the borough again March 5 and slapped with a trespassing summons, according to court records. And most recently, he was arrested March 9 in Manhattan and hit with criminal possession of a controlled substance, assault and attempted assault charges. He was given a desk appearance ticket for the bust and ordered to return to court at the end of July.

How on earth is this piece of garbage still walking the streets?!?!?  He’s been arrested 103 times!!!   What the heck is wrong with NYC?  Oh, that’s right..  Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D)…nuff said.  What a couple of wimpy losers.  We say, throw him in a damp cell and throw away the key.  Just fathom if the races had been reversed and this had been a young white guy doing this to an elderly black woman.  Omg..  The rioting would start ALL over again.. and tenfold.  Of course,  one of the things we do here at The Daily Buzz is highlight the brazen hypocrisy and double standard of the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  With that in mind, its interesting that this story is not receiving much press in that liberal mainstream media..  And, NOBODY is mentioning the racial makeup of the two individuals.  So, we took the liberty to edit the subject line, because we felt you should know.  You’re welcome.  To see the stomach-wrenching video of this event, click on the text above.  Apparently ONLY “black lives matter.”

Candace Owens Mocks Democrats for Kneeling ‘Photo Op’ in Kente Cloth Scarves

There was nothing Democrats would not do to win the black vote, Blexit founder Candace Owens said Monday when Democrat lawmakers took a knee in honor of George Floyd. Owens also tweeted video footage of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her fellow lawmakers wearing Kente cloth scarves while kneeling inside Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol: The lawmakers knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds, which was the same amount of time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck before he died. “We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said, adding, “and so many others who lost their lives and were abused by police brutality.” However, prominent black conservatives such as Owens, Rob Smith, Terrence K. Williams, and Keith and Kevin Hodge have seen how the media used Floyd’s death to portray America as racist, vilify police officers, and force black Americans into the role of victims, wrote Breitbart News’s David Ng. He continued: Many of today’s most vocal black conservatives on social media have thoroughly absorbed the ideas of Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele, who have been writing for decades about the damaging effects left-wing ideology can have on black Americans. Through their own personal experiences, they realized that Democrat politicians want to keep racial animosity alive in order to control the black vote. … Even before #BlackLivesMatter, Sowell warned black Americans that black votes matter to Democrats more than black lives. “Racial harmony would be a political disaster for such politicians,” he said. Monday, Williams tweeted that the if the Democrats won the White House in November, “I’ll honestly be scared for my life.” “I fear that I and many others will be harmed for exposing their lies and corruption. We must for [sic] re-elect President Trump or we will be ruined and the America we know will never be the same,” he concluded.

Agreed 100%!!  Major kudos to Candance Owens, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) best-selling author Dr. Thomas Sowell and other prominent black conservatives for saying what needs to be said.  It’s long overdue.  To see Candace’s Tweet/video of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democrats wearing their Kente cloth scarves (symbolic of Ghana tribal wear)  to ostensibly show solidarity with the Black Congressional Caucus, click on the text above.  These white Democrats doing this nonsense for this photo op, is the most disingenuous, politically self-serving, pandering I have ever seen.  It’d be laughable, if it weren’t so pathetic.  The next time ol’ Nancy takes a pot shot at President Trump for a photo op, someone needs to call her out and show this ridiculous video.  While we’re at it…  Why didn’t some reporter go right up to Nancy or Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), or any other of those white Democrats and ask them…  Why are you wearing that?  You’re not black.  Are you from Ghana?  Are you self-identifying as “African American?”  Of course, the dominantly liberal mainstream media would NEVER do that to a Democrat politician.  Typical…

Gutfeld on the murder of Mr. Dorn

David Dorn spent his last moments on Earth bleeding to death on a sidewalk in front of a looted shop early Tuesday. He was a retired police captain in St. Louis and he was protecting a store. Dorn was 77. His death was shown on Facebook Live. He was a black man. A family man. A good man. Black lives matter. But not to looters, rioters and agitators. Shall we blame this on systemic racism? Who shot David Dorn? Who knows? A stranger? Maybe Seth Rogan or Patton Oswalt already bailed him out. Dorn’s son, Brian Powell said of his father’s death: “It was senseless – over TVs, over stuff that’s replaceable. They’re forgetting the real message for the protest and the positiveness that’s supposed to come out of it and we get this negative light that’s shown on a situation that really needed light to be brought to it.” Dorn’s daughter-in-law, Vanessa Powell, said: “I just hope that the person that did this that they come forth or whatever because this is just so senseless, and I’m just I’m tired of it, I’m tired.” The fact is, fealty to the mob begets only more of the mob. Redefining bloodlust as justified leads to death. And not just David Dorn’s, but a country’s too. A day ago was Blackout Tuesday, when virtue-signalers set their Instagrams to all black to support the protests going on around the country. What an analogy for the media. The media blacks the violence to hide their culpability. Which protects incompetent leaders, criminals and an army of cowardly journalists. Their job: keep the chaos on endless repeat. -Maybe David Dorn’s death can change things. Maybe we can protest loudly in his name and loudly demand action. It’s time, because there’s no Superman coming to save the day for us. There’s no one but us. On CNN, Chris Cuomo said: “Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are the ones who have America what she is and led to any major milestones. Be honest, this is not a tranquil time.” No thanks to Chris Cuomo. As cities are ravaged, he says protests don’t have to be peaceful. Chris, I invite you to meet me in my neighborhood to see what outrage created – the ravaged stores, the dead-eyed looks from people trying to salvage what’s left of their lives. If only they could work in media, and see the silver lining in their ruin. This is not a tranquil time. Thanks for the honesty, Chris.

How sad..  Thanks to Greg Gutfeld for sharing this with us.  That was adapted from his “Gregologue” on June 3rd, 2020 on The Five.  To watch it, click on the text above.  R.I.P Mr. Dorn.

Opinion/Analysis: The ‘Institutional Racism’ Canard

About twice as many white people as black people are killed by police. In fact, in about 75 percent of police shootings, the decedent is not black. Of course, that is not what you would grasp from consuming media. Take the website statista.com, specifically its breathless focus on “Hate crime in the United States” — counterfactually insinuating that any shooting involving a black victim must be a “hate crime.” Here’s their big headline from Tuesday: “Black Americans 2.5X More Likely Than Whites to Be Killed By Police.” It is fiction. It is sheer demagoguery, peddled as American cities are besieged by rioters in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis police. The falsity of the claim is demonstrated even by statista.com itself. Just three days ago, the site posted another series of bar graphs, showing that, in fact, whites are nearly twice as likely as blacks to be shot to death by police. The rest of the bar graphs break out the numbers of Hispanic decedents (slightly lower than black, significantly lower than white), as well as those whose heritage is described as “other” and unknown. Right underneath its chart, statista.com writes, “Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems only to be increasing.” In point of fact, it is steady — and if I wanted to play games like statista.com does, by, say, weighting the numbers to account for population growth while ignoring all other relevant factors, I could even pretend that the number was decreasing. The Washington Post acknowledges that fatal shootings by police have run steadily at around 1,000 per year since 2015 — 995 (2015), 963 (2016), 987 (2017), 998 (2018), and 1,004 (2019). As Heather Mac Donald relates in an insightful Wall Street Journal op-ed, blacks make up only a quarter of the total number of people killed in police shootings annually, a ratio that has held steady since 2015. The reigning canard, however, is that this 25 percent figure proves racism since African Americans make up just 13 percent of the U.S. population. Ridiculous as this syllogism is (as we’ll see, it conveniently elides more consequential factors), it still puts the lie to the slanderous narrative that police are hunting down black men. Even if we ignore the fact that an increasing number of police officers — obviously including those involved in encounters with black suspects — are themselves African Americans, the percentage of black deaths from police shootings would be much higher if blacks were being targeted. Police do not go looking for people to shoot. In shooting situations, police are confronting crime suspects, the majority of whom are armed. But given that George Floyd was unarmed, let’s consider unarmed people killed in such encounters. Such unarmed decedents, too, were twice as likely to be white as black in 2019 — i.e., 19 unarmed whites, nine unarmed blacks. As Ms. Mac Donald observes, this ratio is not stable (and there is some looseness in what the media define as “unarmed”): In 2015, it was 38 unarmed blacks to 32 unarmed whites. The Floyd killing has been injected into the bien pensant narrative of innocent, unarmed black men murdered by cops. But the number of unarmed black men killed by police is vanishingly small. As Mac Donald notes, there were 7,407 black homicide victims in the United States in 2018, the last year for which final numbers are available. Assuming a comparable number in 2019, the nine unarmed men killed in police shootings would represent just 0.1 percent of black homicides. In stark contrast, she asserts, “a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.” The media, the bipartisan political class, the academy, and the commentariat concoct their “systemic,” “institutional,” “unconscious” racism fiction by statistical tunnel vision: We must conclude that African Americans — in particular, young black men — are being targeted by police because the percentage of killings of blacks significantly overrepresents the black population. It makes no sense, however, to look only at the percentage of blacks involved in police shootings, as if it were the only attribute that mattered — as if it were the only attribute by which blacks are overrepresented compared to their percentage of the overall population. While African Americans are involved in two times more police shootings than their percentage of the population would seem to warrant, they commit 53 percent of murders and 60 percent of robberies — well over four times their percentage of the population. The political establishment would have you assume this statistical disparity is caused by institutional racism that myopically beams police attention onto black men. But we know the statistics accurately reflect reality because crimes get reported by victims — a large percentage of whom are black (also outstripping their share of the overall population). If you just focus on interracial crime, though, Mac Donald (writing this time in the City Journal) has crunched those numbers. “Between 2012 and 2015, blacks committed 85.5 percent of all black-white interracial violent victimizations.” This, she qualifies, excludes interracial homicide. Powerline’s Paul Mirengoff fills in that blank: “Blacks commit around 70 percent of black-white interracial homicides.” For this, he draws on FBI crime statistics for 2016. They show that, of 776 black–white homicides, blacks committed 533 and whites 243. Neither of these numbers, by the way, nor their combined total, comes anywhere close to the number of blacks killed by blacks: a staggering 2,570 — the overwhelming majority male.

Black Lives Matter plans armed ‘peace officers’ in ‘war on police,’ NY leader says

The Black Lives Matter movement will develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to combat police brutality in black communities during the so-called “war on police,” according to one of its leaders. Protests broke out across the country following the death of unarmed Minneapolis black man George Floyd while in police custody, bringing the BLM movement back into national focus. In an interview with the Daily Mail, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome described how the group plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by matching fire with fire – when necessary. “We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities,” Newsome said. “You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman … pepper sprayed and pushed to the ground?” “We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.” Newsome attended a national conference in Los Angeles of party leadership to discuss how the movement can create a “pathway forward” for people. The plan, called “Black Opts” for Black Opportunities, details how the movement can help to liberate black people. “We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities,” Newsome said. The move is reminiscent of the Black Panthers Party, which created “peace officers” who open-carried firearms while patrolling black communities in order to deter police brutality. Newsome confirmed that the BLM “peace officers” would also be armed and open carry guns in states that allow it. “We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves,” Newsome explained. “We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.” The New York chapter is at the forefront of the movement, the largest of the 40 chapters the organization operates globally, according to its website. Newsome, who worked as a project manager at a law firm before becoming full-time activist, claimed his chapter has grown into one of the most effective ones in the world. Newsome says his chapter is raising funds for a “war chest” and plans to build a headquarters in an unused church in New York. “When we start talking about black opportunities and building our war chest to defend ourselves from the war on the poor. .. to defend ourselves against the war that is anti-blackness in America, then people will have to meet a certain criteria.” The “blueprint” for the way forward will be unveiled in Times Square in New York on Sunday at 12 p.m. and delivered to communities across the country.

Here at The Daily Buzz, we have for years been saying that BLM is just another black racist, socialist, domestic terrorist organization.  Well, now the gig is up.  They are openly admitting as much!  Mr. Newsome freely admits that BLM will train a group of its members to fight a “war with police.”  If that isn’t the very definition of domestic terrorism, I don’t know what is.  He also says he wants to pattern his so-called “peace officers” after the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party.  Both of those organizations are black racist, socialist/communist, militant, anti-Semitic, domestic terrorist organizations by every definition.  Even the very liberal/left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed them as “hate” groups right there with neo-Nazis and others.  BLM is finally coming out of the closet and saying they’re joining their Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party bros in their “struggle.”  Great…

Watch – ‘Black Lives Matter Is a Joke’: Black D.C. Resident Tells Far-Left Group ‘Go to Chicago’

A D.C. resident confronted Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters at a demonstration over the death of George Floyd in Washington, DC, on Sunday, calling them “hypocrites.” “Black Lives Matter is a joke. You are the racists,” said Nestride Yumga, an American citizen originally from Africa. “Go to Chicago. They don’t have schools, and they die every day. They don’t matter [to you] because you can’t get attention from that,” she told protesters. One woman told Yumga to “shut up” and said no one wanted to hear what she had to say. However, Yumga kept speaking to the crowd. She continued: Group of hypocrites! Go to Southeast D.C., Northeast D.C. Tell them black lives matter! If it matters, it should matter everywhere. You guys are hypocrites, attention seekers. Black lives should matter everywhere. It doesn’t take a white cop to kill a black person [for their life] to matter. … When black people kill black people, they don’t come out and do this crap. “I’m proud of my country, and I don’t want my country to be portrayed like this,” Yumga told Breitbart News, adding that Floyd’s death should not be an opportunity for groups to make people feel like victims. “No one is a victim here. The only victim here is George Floyd.”

Exactly!!   Well said, Nestride!!!  Wow!!  Absolutely epic!!  Please take 5 mins, and click on the text above to watch this AWESOME video.  It’s worth it!  Then, pass it along to friends and family members…especially those who are Democrats, or who may support BLM.  Thanks Nestride!!  God bless you!   She needs to run for public office.  Outstanding!!       🙂

Jason Riley: Blanket media coverage giving false impression that Floyd incident ‘happens to black people every day’

Wall Street Journal columnist and Fox News contributor Jason Riley defended law enforcement amid protests over the death of George Floyd, arguing that the “blanket media coverage” of racially charged incidents involving the police misrepresents true “police behavior” and “what black people go through on a daily basis.” “What I’m a little concerned about is that a lot people out there protesting are doing so because they’re convinced that this happens all the time to black people every day,” said Riley, “that we walk around in fear of law enforcement treating us like this — and I don’t think that what I saw is representative of either police behavior or what black people go through on a daily basis.” Riley told Fox News’ Bret Baier that what appears to be an uptick in racially charged incidents involving the police is actually due to the “blanket media coverage when they happen because of social media and so forth — but this does not mean that this is happening more often.” “Those two things are not distinguished in much of the coverage,” he argued, “and I find that very disturbing. From all the data we have, police use of force has actually gone down considerably since the early 1970’s so these events happen less frequently and yet because when they do happen they get more attention, people have the opposite impression.” Riley warned that the misrepresentation by the media could have devastating effects, and cost more innocent lives as a result. “My concern is that there’s going to be a pullback on the part of police in some of these communities in the aftermath of events like this,” he explained, ” and then these communities will not get the policing that they need and they deserve going forward, and then you’ll see more black lives lost as a result.”

Agreed..  And, fyi, Jason is black…in case that wasn’t clear.  Jason makes a really good point.  Keep it in mind, if you’re actually wasting your evenings watching the nonsense on the news.

Opinion/Analysis: Joe Biden’s racism a Democratic Party tradition

True, we have not even elected him president yet, but isn’t it already time to start dismantling Joe Biden’s presidential library? After all, he has a long history of supporting white supremacists and just being an all-around racially insensitive, privileged white geezer. To be fair, Mr. Biden did not invent the Democratic Party or its racism. But for nearly 50 years he has knowingly and willingly associated himself with and supported the causes of the Democratic Party, known throughout history for its association with white supremacy. Just this week, The New York Times “celebrated” Memorial Day the only way they know how. They wrote an editorial denigrating the U.S. military and disparaging a bunch of military figures who have been highly revered throughout history for their leadership in the U.S. military. In the process, apparently, The New York Times editorial board made a shocking discovery that America fought a civil war back in the 1860s called, well, the “Civil War.” It is also known in some parts as the “War Between the States,” the “War of Northern Aggression,” the “Late Unpleasantness,” and, even still, sometimes just “The War.” These same crack editorial page writers also, in the process of discovering this civil war, discovered that for hundreds of years the abominable practice of slavery was legal in the United States. It was legal, in fact, until a Republican president named Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and pushed through the 13th Amendment in 1865. “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacists?” asks The New York Times editorial board. This is a fairly hilarious question that reveals more about The New York Times editorial board than anything about the U.S. military. Anyone in America with even the most passing affiliation with the U.S. armed services knows that the American military is — without equal — the most egalitarian institution in the country. Military service has been a pathway to the American dream for millions of Americans, regardless of income, gender, race or religious beliefs. The fact that The New York Times editorial board does not know this tells you all you need to know about them. As the U.S. military was helping millions make leaps and bounds towards the American Dream, Democrat Joe Biden was busy kibitzing with actual white supremacists. And we are not just talking about former Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, who was an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan before becoming the longest-serving senator in U.S. history. Both lifelong Democrats, Mr. Biden and Mr. Byrd served in the Senate together and caucused together for more than 35 years. But wait there’s more! Just last year, Mr. Biden bragged how well he worked with other fierce segregationists in his own party. So enthusiastic is Mr. Biden about his fond memories of working with the ol’ time racists that whenever he waxes poetic about them, he slips into a fake Southern accent. At a fundraiser last year, Mr. Biden recalled warmly — in a fake Southern accent — how one of the old racist bulls “never called me ‘boy.’ He always called me ‘son.’” This is how Mr. Biden always talks when channeling his party’s long, ugly history with racism and racist politics. In 2012, the last time he was fighting for his political life, Mr. Biden donned a fake Southern accent when he bizarrely warned a gathering of black voters in rural Virginia that his opponent would “put y’all back in chains” if elected. It’s the same fake Southern accent he used last week when he told black voters that they “ain’t black” if they have any second thoughts about voting for him to be president. While The New York Times editorial board is busy dishonorably smearing the U.S. military today, they would be far more effective if they trained their vitriol on the Democratic nominee for president and the future monument to his long career in Washington. Or, as Ronald Reagan might have said, “Mr. Biden, tear down that library!”

No kidding!!  Thanks Charlie!  Veteran columnist Charles Hurt is responsible for that brutal assessment of Joe Biden, and his racial hypocrisy.  As Charlie rightly notes, slavery was legal in this country until a REPUBLICAN President, Abe Lincoln, changed that.  As for the Klan..  Here’s a dirty little secret that Democrats don’t want you to know..  For the first CENTURY of it’s existence (i.e. 1865 to roughly 1967 give/take), the KKK was almost 100% exclusively made up of white DEMOCRATS.  Yeah.. That’s right.  I wonder how many black registered voters are aware of that.  That’d be an interesting poll..     🙂

New York Times on Memorial Day Weekend: ‘Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?’

The New York Times published an editorial on the first day of Memorial Day weekend asking: “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” The article‘s byline is the entire editorial board, and it is accompanied by an image of a bullet shaped like a Ku Klux Klan robe. The central complaint of the article is that there are U.S. military bases named after Confederate Army officers: This same toxic legacy clings to the 10 United States military installations across the South that were named for Confederate Army officers during the first half of the 20th century. Apologists often describe the names as a necessary gesture of reconciliation in the wake of the Civil War. In truth, the namings reflect a federal embrace of white supremacy that found its most poisonous expression in military installations where black servicemen were deliberately placed under the command of white Southerners — who were said to better “understand” Negroes — and confined to substandard housing, segregated transportation systems and even “colored only” seating in movie houses. The editorial further claims that “The federal government embraced pillars of the white supremacist movement when it named military bases in the South.” It rejects the argument — offered by the U.S. Army during the Obama administration that “there was no need to expunge Confederate base names because the names were merely ‘historic’ and ‘represent individuals, not causes or ideologies.’” The editorial also claims that the names were adopted “as part of broader accommodation in which the military embraced stringent segregation so as not to offend Southerners.” The South has historically contributed disproportionately to the ranks of the U.S. military, and continues to do so today: in fiscal year 2017, it contained 33 percent of the nation’s young adult population, but provided 41 percent of the nation’s military enlistees. The Times provides no other example of the U.S. military “celebrating white supremacy.”

Of ALL the days in a given year that the extremely liberal, agenda-driven New York Times chose to print such a piece, they chose Memorial Day; a day we as Americans set aside to remember military service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  This is beyond disgusting and low-class on the part of their editorial board.  It was a cheap shot, and exposes these nauseating, un-patriotic tools for who they really are.  Shame on them.  If you have a subscription to that rag, NOW would be a really good time to cancel it.
