For you, tonight, whilst the apocalypse is crawling up your…

…ass. Do ponder these sensible scribblings from the men who are all Wiser Than You. And later this evening, when you begin to puke plasma, or secrete goo, or see the skin peel right off your handsome flesh, in the same manner your dog Rusty once sundered a watermelon Fruit Roll-Up – Jesus where did he get that? – by nibbling at it with the corners of his front teeth, just remember how completely care-free and silly you once were. Not to have taken them seriously, oh dear.

Obama has favored his African brothers over the rest of us by allowing them free entry into this country. As a result, Ebola has now been introduced into the United States, may be on the verge of spreading rapidly, with the end result being potential massive death to our citizenry.

Larry Klayman – massive death. No problem that’s how I’d like to go, massively. A week-long palsy of screaming and running around the neighborhood HERE IT COMES. I AM GONNA DIE. CHRIST NOW I’M REALLY DYING. People will remember and they’ll smile.

For Ebola, at least at present, it appears to be even worse a threat to this nation than AIDS or other incurable African generated diseases have been in the last decades. Indeed, it is more than likely that suicide terrorists from ISIS, perhaps American Muslim traitors, and others from Islamic terrorist groups, will infect themselves with this deadly virus and enter the United States to inflict severe harm on us.

Why don’t ISIS just fly here and start shooting? Oh don’t be silly. They’d rather fly to Sierra Leone first, lick some vomit from the floor of a mudhut, courier a few fecal samples to a test lab, then wing on over to Parsippany and start french kissing all the guidos. We WILL be concerned, I tell you. Stop kissing Luigi! Stop it I said!

But as has been true throughout Obama’s illegitimate presidency, as all credible evidence suggests that he was born in Kenya and is neither a natural born citizen eligible to be president, nor has he been “naturalized” as a citizen to even have the right to remain here – see the deportation petition I filed recently – regrettably our Muslim commander in chief has favored his own creed over the rest of us.

OBAMA: Other than elect me their President what have white people ever done for me?

AFRICA: Exactly! Let us in!


EBOLA: This is, like, the biggest chicken pot pie I’ve ever seen. I don’t know where to begin.



Órale vato I stole your sub-contract

Here’s Victor Davis Hanson’s latest. It’s called “…Aristocracies Have no Place in Modern America.”

But before you assume Vic has finally gotten sick of our robber barons, think again. Before you raise any hope that Charles and David Koch are about to get both barrels of a Victor Davis Cranius Cavernosum epistle, hope not. Much as the scions of the family of billionaires who started the Birch Society, twin godlike eminences of the right-wing, serial impresarios of an alphabet soup of political bullshit and dysfunction – AEI, AFP, ALEC, the NRA, Cato, the Heritage Foundation, the Federalist Society – deserve a violent public flogging for their corpus delicti, Hanson will never be that brave.

Instead he oils his whip, and he prowls the Western borderlands. No sense in losing a paycheck, you know. The dear reader will appreciate Hanson’s latest targets being nothing more than the usual suspects for a man of his proclivities. Because this is the real title of his screed, including the first, key, word: “Ethnic Aristocracies Have no Place in Modern America.” That’s right: The colored people are having it too easy in America and let’s put a stop to it, shall we?

Once upon a time, the liberal position was to reject the old discriminatory branding of people by the color of their skins rather than by the content of their characters.

Not now. Political and career advantage is found in trumpeting — or occasionally making up — genealogies.

For the sake of argument, fine. And what would be the “career advantage” in posing as a minority?

Take the inexact category of Latino or Hispanic — an often constructed identity that increasingly no one quite knows how to define.

You could confuse people like Victor.

Almost anyone can be a Latino or Hispanic, from a fourth-generation American with one-quarter Mexican ancestry, to a first-generation Cuban, to a youth who recently arrived illegally from Central America, to someone whose great-grandparents emigrated from the Portuguese Azores.

You could have your own Shriners clubs.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is Latina — her parents were Mexican-American. But her now-desperate Democratic challenger for the governorship, Gary King, claims that Martinez “does not have a Latino heart.” Apparently for King, a self-appointed genealogist, if you do not share his liberal agenda, then you are, de facto, not Latino.

You could even call someone you didn’t like ‘Un Tio Tomás’. There’s a mix of envy and animus on Vic’s part for Latinos being so fabulously conniving and powerful, in a yet-to-be-mentioned, or wholly-imaginary, way.

Last year, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a liberal who is of mixed Mexican and Spanish ancestry, claimed that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a conservative who is half-Cuban, should not “be defined as a Hispanic” because Cruz opposes comprehensive immigration reform.

Just imagine if Richardson were conservative, had taken his mother’s name and went by Bill Marquez, and if Cruz were liberal, also took his mother’s name and went by Ted Wilson. Who would be the more authentic Hispanic/Latino?

What if the liberal had the ethnic name, and the lunatic didn’t? [Note to self: Plant tongue in cheek. Cross arms. Done.] And what if they swapped political positions too? I suppose the former leftist would vehemently oppose having any more of his people in America, and we’d call him a traitor to his race. Was that the gist of the argument? I think I won, didn’t I?

On and on Cranius goes indicting suspect after criminal of lying to appear tragically hip – Elizabeth Warren claimed she was Geronimo! Argh! – without coming up with a motive. What sort of games are the American aristocracy playing? The answer is nowhere to be found. If Henry the VIII got to behead his ex-wives, and Phillip the II got to play with an armada, then just what exactly do the Mexicans, real or imaginary, get? OH here it is, in paragraph XVI:

But even if some can prove ethnically pure heritages, who gets an edge in racially mixed-up America and who does not — and why? Will the tens of thousands of Central American children who recently crossed illegally into America soon be eligible for affirmative action?

They get affirmative action. That’s how a survivor of Guatemala’s death squads turns into Marie Antoinette.

If so, on what grounds? That America welcomed, fed, clothed and schooled those who were all but driven out from their oppressive Central American governments?

Is that all? What a brazen swindle. You see Victor is a very nice man but the Immigration And Naturalization Service isn’t feeding him any suckling pig. Nobody from the Border Patrol is tailoring him any silken garments. So what gives, liberals? He’d like to live here in America too, you know! Has anyone ever seen anything in life so unfair to Victor Maximus Mammonae Tonguebath? Or to the many wastrel targets of the state’s spiteful discrimination, his country club pals? They are full of pity for Caesar, I know. Look how that turned out. Órale vato, he stands athwart, etc.

Why continue with divisive racial self-identification?

Too many of our ethnic aristocrats and politicians benefit from a fossilized system of a past century that is now largely irrelevant in 21st-century America…

…where the modern Medicis, Goldman Sachs, have every right to manipulate, or extort, or decimate the world’s financial systems because that’s the nature of business. And where the Koch Brothers do get sensibly fellated at the drop of a Rolodex because of the staggering First Amendment power granted them by birthright, and wealth. But there are still parts of America that deserve protection from undue influence in this world, at least from the grasping minorities. And it’s the institutions mouldering under the veil of affirmative action that Victor holds most dear: Higher education and federal sub-contracting. Yeah.


Ron Paul: A show about nothing

It’s like, how much more Ron Paul could this be? And the answer is none. None more Ron Paul.

5,000 Americans contacted healthcare providers fearful they had contracted Ebola after the media reported that someone with Ebola had entered the United States. All 5,000 cases turned out to be false alarms…

Ebola is a dangerous disease, but it is very difficult to contract.

Finally, some common sense from the right wing. But then you realize: It’s coming from Ron Paul.

Ebola spreads via direct contact with the virus.

Meaning that what he says will sound reasonable at first. Until you begin to take it seriously, and think about it a bit, and then it will dawn upon you. This guy is an idiot.

To wit: What kind of viral disease can you contract without having “direct contact with the virus”? How the hell else would a virus take over your system? Telekinesis? You get my point. Jiminy Cricket, Ron Paul is a useless person.

The devastation wrought by years of war has made it impossible for these countries to develop modern healthcare infrastructure. For example, the 14-year civil war in Liberia left that country with almost no trained doctors.

You’re telling me the country’s doctors have Gone Galt. They’ve all come down with a case of Enlightened Self-Interest. Good for them, being so fully-empowered and self-actualized. Unfortunately, without them, Libertarianism will have a difficult time helping their poor fellow countrymen in a time of need. This virus in particular remains dangerously unimpressed with Ron Paul’s political acumen and philosophical dynamism.

President Obama’s response to the Ebola crisis has been to send 3,000 troops to West African countries to help with treatment and containment. Obama did not bother to seek congressional authorization for this overseas military deployment. Nor did he bother to tell the American people how long the mission would last, how much it would cost, or what section of the Constitution authorizes him to send US troops on “humanitarian” missions.

Nonetheless Paul has managed to come up with some advice for us. Here’s how we can all pitch in and stop this terrible epidemic:

The people of Liberia and other countries would be better off if the US government left them alone.

We can ignore it.

Leave it to private citizens to invest in African business and trade with the African people. Private investment and trade would help these countries develop thriving free-market economies capable of sustaining a modern healthcare infrastructure.

And after a few million people die of the disease, and Liberia has been reduced to empty jungle, a group of fully self-actualized individuals will descend upon the “country” and buy it lock, stock and barrel. That’s when the now-former Liberians will get the shiny healthcare system they richly deserve.


A idiocy with regard to science approaching depravity


Fat Lesbians Got All the Ebola Dollars, But Blame the GOP
By: Erick Erickson (Diary)

Democrats have rushed out of the gate with an attack ad against Republicans claiming if only we had spent more money, we would be able to solve the Ebola situation.

…Republicans can respond in kind. For example, instead of studying Ebola, the National Institutes of Health were studying the propensity of lesbians to be fat.

I surely believe the government was billions of dollars-wise interested in why lesbians are fat. I’m contented to assume when researchers received their sumptuous grants they dashed right down to the 7-11 to convert their NIH debit cards to cash and press the bounty into the pockets of the local Chicago Bear fans, who otherwise would be spending their time doing each other’s hair or Eskimo kissing, when not shifting from one plump foot to the other in anticipation of government largesse. Abandoned troop transports they were, all. Just so Erick could point out they “Got All the Ebola Dollars.”

And the Centers for Disease Control spent its budget on gun violence studies on order of the President as part of his agenda to curtail the second amendment.

The CDC also spent its money to survey what bus riders thought of HIV videos.

Hey, and let’s not forget all the money the CDC spent to convince people to stop smoking and now we need tobacco to manufacture the drug to fight Ebola. Classic.

Classic. After millions of Americans died of cancer, you bureaucrats unleashed a savage lawyer-ing upon the poor tobacco companies. But now you want to make some of this experimental Ebola drug. From what? Cigarettes! And isn’t it true you’ve been hounding the country to buy fewer guns? To stop the spree killings of children and such? But now you want to go out and spend millions of dollars on rifles. For what? A so-called ‘Army’! The hypocrisy.


You’re an orgasm addict

San Diego sounds like a lovely place.

Todd Bosnich says he joined [Carl] DeMaio’s campaign last year eager to work for a candidate who shared his values and who, like himself, is an openly gay Republican…

One morning last April, Bosnich said he arrived early at campaign headquarters and DeMaio called him back to his office.

“I came over to his office, door was open. And he was masturbating,” Bosnich said. “I saw his hand, his penis in his hand and he had a smile on his face.”

Morning boss. Morning Todd. You watch last night’s episode of To Catch A Predator? Boy I tell you some people. Okay, ready? STAND BACK.

Bosnich said the harassment that culminated that spring morning started months before, when DeMaio drove Bosnich back to his car after drinks with the staff at a local bar.

“We were making small talk on the way back. And when he pulled up to my car, he reached over into my lap and grabbed my crotch. And I flipped out. And I pushed his hand away,” Bosnich said. “I just was shocked because I’d never had anyone do something like that to me, especially in a position of authority and trust.”…

“‘That’s just the way Carl is,’” Bosnich recalls [campaign manager] Knepper saying. “And that if I really felt that uncomfortable I shouldn’t have let him know that I’m a gay man.”

Didn’t your mother ever warn you? Never tell a sex maniac you’re gay. He’ll get tipsy and clutch your balls for sure. Everybody knows. Oh by the way.

This is not the first time DeMaio has been accused of sexually inappropriate behavior. Last year, a fellow city councilman, Ben Hueso, said he twice caught DeMaio masturbating in a semi-private city hall restroom accessible only to city officials…

“He was furious; he looked like something serious had just happened,” [councilwoman] Emerald said. “He said DeMaio was in there (masturbating). And I said do you want to grab a police officer and have him arrested? Because this is a violation of the (city) code. He said no, but he was pretty upset.”

So the first openly gay Republican happens to be the mythological pervert the other 99.9% of Republicans have been warning us about. Time to take a long look in the mirror. Maybe some things aren’t exactly what they seem.


If it ain’t the one thing, it’s the other

I find Pat Dollard entertaining.

Now why would @BarackObama do that? Why would he terrorize all those children?

He would terrorize the children because he’s black. Ah yes, do go on.

It’s an African psychopath’s punishment and revenge for the humiliations of slavery and colonialism, a general attack for his general hatred of the US, and a desire to make America suffer just like his home continent, kind of like saying “You, America, are no better than Africa.”

Is this true, Rush Limbaugh?

Radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested on Monday that President Barack Obama is refusing to divert flights from Ebola-infected countries and close down America’s borders because he believes that the nation “deserves” to be infected with the virus given its history of perpetuating slavery.

There you have it. It’s absolutely concretely true. Like Mammy’s socks I’ll be darned. Pat?

Obama’s advisors told him that without a flight ban, Ebola was 100% guaranteed to enter the United States. He is terrorizing and infecting the country on purpose.

Wait up there, buddy – that poor man in Dallas just died. YAAAY! We’re 100% Ebola free! A-mer-i-ca! A-mer-i-ca! The Apocalypse, she has been thoroughly Averted, no? Well, nooo.

Heck. Pat wins again.


A model of Republican leadership

Meet the latest version of the Great Republican Candidate, Gordon Klingenschmitt.

Doctor ChapsI said “you foul spirit of lesbianism, this woman has renounced you, come out of her in Jesus’ name” and she began to wrestle with that and suddenly her eyes began to bug out and then she began to weep, and weep, and weep as the Holy Spirit forgave her sins.

She was baptized the next day and then she became one of the best evangelists in our church, started carrying around her Bible telling all of her friends about Jesus and she started dating boys.

Dr. Chaps, as he calls himself, is running for Colorado congress in the 15th district.

We can see the demonic spirit of adultery in people like that. And, of course, when we apply this to Madonna, she does much the same thing, right? She’s out there pandering with sexuality, and she does it for money. And she’s out there seducing people to death.

That’s an issue for the new congressman to immediately address. Have ye faith in your Republican party, Coloradans? Then when a public servant of this mental illness caliber comes up for office, cry out: Callooh Callay! Huzzah!

So for example, Julius Genachowski, the outgoing FCC chairman, who works apparently in collusion with President Obama, has not enforced decency standards in even four years…

So there’s perhaps a demonic spirit of tyranny or immorality inside of him…the demonic spirit influences him to abuse and, dare I say, molest and visually rape your children.

[Must we remind? No means no, tyranny demon.] Tell the Party of Lincoln – thank you.

There is a spirit of hiding, a spirit of secrecy…it’s got its roots in a satanic evil spirit of violation, of tyranny really…

Let’s pray: Father in Heaven, we pray against the domestic enemies of the Constitution against this demon of tyranny who is using the White House occupant. And that demonic spirit is oppressing us. Father we command it to leave.

Go on, say it loud…I’m bananas and I’m proud.

The openly homosexual Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) introduced a revised bill to force Christian employers and business owners to hire and promote homosexuals with ZERO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS for Christians who want to opt out…

Democrats like Polis want to bankrupt Christians who refuse to worship and endorse his sodomy. Next he’ll join ISIS in beheading Christians, but not just in Syria, right here in America.

I’m sooo jealous.


Let’s impeach him for Ebola as well

Why pray tell must we suffer a deadly dangerous outbreak of Ebola in our United States? That’s the big question. Well, partner, I’m not sure what exactly you mean by the word ‘outbreak.’ Perhaps you mean something else, like ‘containment’? A Liberian man came into contact with an infected woman back in Africa, then he returned here. That’s nothing like a contagion, that’s like a ‘commute.’ As a result America has now had itself a ‘containment.’ If, though, a couple dozen unlucky people in the Liberian’s neighborhood now come down with the virus I’m ready to concede an apocalypse. We will have ourselves an actual outbreak.

But some are already convinced Ebola has precipitated a devastating American health crisis. They’ve resorted to praying for the safety and welfare of their children and their church groups lest the epidemic run like a wildfire through their neighborhoods before they can make their peace with Him. As they typically become whenever Revelations descends upon them, or the moon fades to red, or the mayflies swarm ominously as a sign the country is being overtaken by dark forces from a far-flung continent, our conservative friends are now in shock. Thoroughly terrified. And very, very angry.

Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama, Indonesian citizen and erstwhile Muslim, needs to be impeached. Now. Repeat, now.

Ho-hum Michael. C’mon, why?

The latest, and most egregious, example is the federal government’s (mis)handling of the spread of the Ebola epidemic… Ebola is already here, in Texas, in Georgia, probably in New York or New Jersey.

The coast-to-coast epidemic, unfortunately, died yesterday. I have no doubt this is a tragedy for our author given the very few days Patient Zero was given to convert Texas into jungled Africa. If he hadn’t enough time to turn even a single hospital into a mortician’s glossary, I fear someone is going to take it personally.

In addition, Obama-Soetoro, as “Commander-in-Chief,” has ordered 3,000 of our military personnel to the infected areas of Africa where it is inevitable that some, if not all, will become infected themselves.

Dateline: tomorrow. A long-missing Army troop transport appeared off Cocoa Beach, Florida, weeks late and wildly off-course shocking swimmers and sunbathers who gawked at the eerie sight. The ship ran silently aground on the beach minutes after 1 p.m. local time. Military police soon arrived at the scene and clambered aboard the carrier to look for survivors. Hours later officials in contact with the searchers confirmed that none of the passengers or crew had survived…

Is this how it’s supposed to go down? Because I’m betting anything big enough to carry 3,000 soldiers has room for a doctor. A small grotto for a couple of nurses. An overhead compartment big enough for a bitchin’ two-way radio, too.

They will then bring the disease home with them to infect God only knows how many more soldiers and American civilians.

OH I’ve got it all wrong. Here’s how it goes: The soldiers disembark and then sprint right back to catch the midnight mass at Our Lady of the Sanctified Channel. WHERE they all stand shivering in line waiting for a proper transmogrification, until the first of them arrives finally in front of the priest, poking a pale and palsying tongue out at Father Doocy. WHO only just barely manages to wonder ‘What the…?’ before receiving a skull-melting volley of the African Death Vomit to many a churchgoer’s shock, if not surprise. You will agree that this is something we, as Americans, should avoid.


A case of nth-degree boobiary Ebola Panic

The truth is that Ebola virus really isn’t much of a threat. It’s only about as contagious as hepatitis. Unless you have some pressing need to go walking hand-in-hand with strangers along the Mesurado river, it’s something you can easily avoid. Ebola panic however is another story.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky declared on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that “this could get beyond our control” and worried, “Can you imagine if a whole ship full of our soldiers catch Ebola?”…

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin floated the idea of quarantining airline passengers in the affected African countries before they could fly out. “We’re learning a lot about how it’s spread but the question is ‘How can a person just jump on a plane and get here without a quarantine period of 21 days,’ which I believe is recommended,” he said on a radio talk show Wednesday.

Can you imagine quarantining the thousands of people who arrive here from West Africa every day? Can you imagine lying so shamelessly about a Centers for Disease Control recommendation? Fuck you, Paul Ryan.

You know what’s a good way to deal with this problem? When an African man shows up in your Dallas emergency room with flu-like symptoms, you ask him: “Are you Liberian?” Here’s a sensible one: “Did you just fly here from Liberia?” And then there’s this corker: “Have you recently been in close contact with any Liberians dying from Ebola, in Liberia?” Asking even one of these practical questions of a vomiting stranger could give your puzzled medical staff valuable hints as to what they’re dealing with, but your mileage may vary. Notwithstanding: Booo! That’s not how these clusterfucks go, so now we’ve got a full-blown case of American Ebola Tremons. Matthew Continetti:

We are told that Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration, that al Qaeda is on the run, that the border is secure as it has ever been, that Assad must go, that I didn’t draw a red line, the world drew a red line, that the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups involved not a smidgen of corruption, that the Islamic State is not Islamic…

The system can withstand only so many shocks.

Remember when those four guys were killed in Libya? It looked like sheer panic in my neighborhood, I can tell you.

The response by our government has been denial and delusion. But that has further alienated the public, and it won’t be long before things get really weird. Maybe it is time for the political class to panic, too.

Know hope? That’s passé.

Know fear.

You hear that? SShh! Did you HEAR THAT? This would be ghost whispering for our wingnut pals. If only the simple suggestion of ghosts having ears wouldn’t cause an outbreak of volcanic incontinence. THEY CAN HEAR YOU? Then there’s Jonah Goldberg.

If I were in charge of overseas contingency operations at the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, I would send as many suicide-bomber types back to America (and France and Britain) with a new weapon: Ebola.

What a mensch.

I’d tell them: Take as many connections as you can on the flight home. Help people with their luggage whenever possible. Leave a mess in the plane bathroom and a paper trail of your travels that will foment panic when ultimately revealed.

Really a helpful sort.

Have fun for as long as you can and maybe share your spit, sweat, and other stuff in as many creative ways as you can. See a show. Go to a water park and just hang out in the lazy river all day. Eat at a nice restaurant, leave a messy napkin. Don’t bother to wash your hands — and never flush (or if you do, make sure the toilet overflows!).

The Salt of the Girth. He is.


Lucas Oil for Jesus America: Shut up Black Lady!

The Vice President of a global warming conglomerate that manufactures a thoroughly useless oil product has just now favored the internet, telling the whole world her useless feelings. Jack Benny pose: well. Get your paper and pencils out boys because this is gonna be big, really big.

Charlotte Lucas, the wife of company founder Forrest Lucas, posted a Facebook rant on Friday regarding “minorities.”

Via RTV6 in Indy, Mrs. Lucas said…

charlotte lucas facebook

If you won’t fight back for what is wrong with this country just because someone is a minority what’s the problem with you? You’re white. You rule. Tell everybody what to do! About what, incidentally? And which person, exactly?


I don’t know. Probably somebody big.

The post was deleted, but Lucas confirmed to RTV6 that she had written it.

“I was very upset when I wrote that,” Lucas said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”

I won’t go any further than to say this person is a big deal minority muslim. And she makes it her business to tell me what to put in my mouth. Okay, you got me, it’s Shecky Green. SHUT UP BITCH.


Who would want to see him shot dead? Not us! No!

The National Review’s resident poncy toff is shocked, shocked!

An extraordinary item from Peter Baker in the New York Times:

“President Obama must be touched by all the concern Republicans are showing him these days. As Congress examines security breaches at the White House, even opposition lawmakers who have spent the last six years fighting his every initiative have expressed deep worry for his security.”

“Even”? Can it really be too difficult to recognize that citizens who strongly disagree with the president of the republic don’t want him to be murdered?

Baker got a little snark-y in his column but it isn’t all that funny. There are a great number of Americans who would rejoice upon hearing the Secret Service had failed to stop an assassination attempt on the president. If you’re in the habit of reading blogs (woe is me) then you know what the far right thinks of the first African American president. They want him dead, right now. But like every other true patriot, Cooke has some tony bipartisan fee-fees you jackals.

Of course we want the president to be safe. Those who are surprised by this perhaps need to spend some more time with their ideological opponents, or — and this will be harder, I grant — spend a little more time examining what it is about their ideology that led them to conflate political opposition and violence in the first instance.

Whether Cooke drew the National Review short straw or he’s been stocking gin at the Empire Club and forgot what The Internet’s about, this is fuck-all stupid. I make such a claim because having to write this blog over the many years has resigned me “to spend some time with their ideological opponents.” I’m a witness to the yearnings of America’s right-wing.

But just in case any curious human person disbelieves me, I went and double-checked. I clicked over to the wingnut website Weasel Zippers: Secret Service Director Resigns …Man With Gun Allowed Feet From POTUS… And I copied a few reactions to the failures of the Secret Service:

Kill Barack WeaZipz

To be fair those are less than ten percent of the comments. But their existence is as predictable as Cooke making self-mocking assumptions. He doesn’t seem to know the first thing about his nuthouse former colony.


Caught red-handed playing the racetard

Is Kirsten Gillibrand a racist? D.C. McAllister at The Federalist asks and then answers the question.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand seems to be stereotyping football players according to race and contrary to statistical evidence.

That’s a serious allegation to be leveled, especially at a Democrat from New York. Let’s investigate shall we? This comes down to something she said, so let’s hear it.

In a recent interview with Huffington Post, she said, “All of the fans, young boys and girls watching this, are watching the NFL say it’s okay to beat your wife. It’s unacceptable…. It’s not just about Roger Goodell and this one player. There are hundreds of players who are beating their wives, committing assault, committing rape across all sports, and we have to hold them all accountable.”

Note that Gillibrand didn’t say it was “hundreds of minorities who are beating their wives.” That would be singling out some over others. She said it was “hundreds of players who are beating their wives,” and “across all sports,” at that. So the problem isn’t relegated to only professionals, or even players of football. And I don’t doubt she’s right. To McAllister, though, that sort of charge sounds like a voice-over for “Birth of a Nation.”

How so? Because when she makes a general observation about all sports, Sen. Gillibrand is clearly talking about only certain people.

Really? Hundreds? How does she know this? She makes it sound as if wife-beating and violence are epidemic in the National Football League.

So there, she’s talking about the NFL. This leaves the senator a rhetorical sitting duck, and there’s paltry left to do but finish her off. And how will McAllister dispense with the maniac Gillibrand? By doing us the great favor of reducing National Football League players to numbers, categorizing them by race and criminality. Really? Yeah, really. Hey if this is where the foolish senator wants to go, D.C. is only too happy to oblige:

But is this really true?… Pitch writes:

Blumstein and Benedict found that of the 342 black players in their [NFL] sample, 97 of them, or 28 percent, had an arrest for one of these [many] crimes. There were 77 whites in the sample; seven of them, or 9 percent, had an arrest.

Those numbers appear high until we compare them with arrest numbers for the general population… For the general population, the arrest rate for assault for black men was 6,990 per 100,00, and for whites, 2,209.

The corresponding rate for NFL players, black and white, was less than half the rate for the general population.

Yikes. 25% of black and white players combined had been arrested for committing any of a number of serious crimes, from DUI to rape and domestic violence. But when you narrow the field down to simple assault the numbers do get better. That’s when Goodell’s millionaires are only half as bad as your everyday thugs. Feel any better about high-profile wife-beating? I know I do. But before you get too upbeat, let’s watch D.C. grab a-hold of even more shocking numbers, with her spread sheet in the shape of a burning cross, and beat the senator like a wandering Klansman:

If the facts don’t back up what feminists like Gillibrand are saying, why do they assume that “hundreds of players are beating women and committing assault”? Could it have anything to do with the fact that 67 percent of NFL players are black?

Behold the brilliant rhetorical tack: Is she a racist because the NFL is black? Does she know how bad blacks are? What, are you telling me you don’t know? Let me show you the statistics!

Are they drawing that conclusion based on the fact that black youths, who make up 16 percent of the youth population, account for 52 percent of juvenile violent crime arrests? Or that in a city like New York, 83 percent of all gun assailants are black even though they make up only 24 percent of the population?

Now with the numbers out, McAllister delivers the haymaker:

Is Gillibrand assuming that because a majority of NFL players are black they must be criminals?

Is she making the McAllister assumption? Does she think a few statistics can indict an entire race?

Just asking.

It needed to be asked! If she assumes that a FEW black people – professional football players – are as bad as the rest, their own friends and family for instance, that’s racism. It would be quite the shocking thought-crime on Gillibrand’s part, agreed? God Bless The Federalist, whose cheerless lot in life is to defend the targets of such groundless bigotry.
