This is just a screencap from an amazing NYT interactive crime stat map. Wrangel might want to give it a look.

Great job by Jesse!

Rangel had to resort to getting nasty.

I can’t stand the crook.

Love Jesse, he has more courage then any other reporter out there. Someone needs to ask these race pimps how they are helping the situation. Civil rights has been the law for over 50 years and if there is still discrimination, as they say, then it means that what they are doing now failed and maybe it’s time to try something else that might work.

i suspect so - and i frankly hate these posts as they're kinda hit and run from the poster, with no followup, in essence using us as a vehicle to spread the story/posters name.

how is this different from blog pimping, regardless of the story line?

I can understand why JW might not want to post...you may recall that Tony Snow was a long time FReeper..there was a daily thread here for his radio show..the regulars called themselves "snowflakes"..he'd post to it often, as "tony snow" and occasionally read stuff from it on air. A day of so before he was announced as W's new press secretary..everything about him..all threads..replies...was scrubbed clean..you'd never have known hat he was ever here..

:::rolling eyes:::

Since you know little-to-nothing about Jesse Watters...in your case, ignorance isn't bliss. It makes you needlessly grumpy. I'll bet the farm Watters is busier than you. I'll bet another farm that he works a lot harder exposing liberal hypocrisy than you do.

It's a complete waste of time to debate anything with raunchy Rangel. The sleazeball should have been run out of DC and straight into a jail cell. He's the poster boy for political scum.

One of the things that was very obvious from the transcript was that Rangel

DID NOT WANT TO DISCUSS

the high rate of BASTARDITY in the “black community”.

That seemed to be a point that he wanted to avoid at all costs. He’s probably fathered a couple of bastards himself.

As usual, Jesse shows incredible courage and tenacity in trying to get answers. IMO he should get Bill O’Blowhard’s time slot (and then I’d watch). He’s been the only good thing about that show for years!

Do you really think O’Blowhard would lower himself to lurk anywhere? He has staff to do all his investigating for him. If he, of they, actually lurked here, his “breaking news” stories would be more up-to-date (and accurate). He’s always a few days behind us. Jesse Watters is the only person on his staff who seems to know what’s happening when it’s happening.

Every time someone famous, be they a politician or media member has posted on FR it has pretty much turned into a highly embarrassing monkey poo flinging contest.

I used to have a real problem with blog pimping and hit-n-run posters like this but how is this worse than FReepers giving hits to NYT, WaPo or Politico?

So the guy self promotes. He also confronts powerful people regularly and exposes them to unwanted truths and public scrutiny in front of hundreds of thousands of television viewers. This isn't some guy in Mom's basement changing a few words on someone else’s research and passing it off as his own to gain some Internet attention.

So basically, Rangel’s argument is as follows:

1. Blacks commit more crime, because they are poor and without hope. (Yet during the Great Depression, with so many MORE poor people and no social services—food stamps, rent supplements, AFDC, etc—people of ALL colors committed FAR less crime).

2. Because poor, hopeless blacks commit more crime, the “Zimmermans” of the world (I guess that means racist white folk) can kill blacks indiscriminately. They can do so on sight, as the statistics say blacks are more likely to commit a crime. (yet does this happen? Who wants to try it and see where it gets them? Did Zimmerman shoot Martin “on sight”?)

3. Ban guns.

False statement. Private replies.

It's quite relevant in this forum. Conservatives understand the notion.

this is the same as blog pimping / self horn tooting

As a matter of fact, NewsMax covered the FOX News/Rangel story. Managed to misspell Watters too. Perhaps you would find that source more palatable than info from the creator of the original work product.

The Clueless Wonder Meter is reaching the hot zone.

Subject: Re Socialist Injustice
:How an examination of the Neighborhood Watch area of the Zimmerman trial exposes it.

Since the Zimmernan not guilty verdict has been rendered, the facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice to be committed of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent.While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..

Instead the party that hypenated itself from God at their 2012 convention into demo-coms, and believe that all groups should be hyphenated , Afro-American, Hispanic-American, etc..Decided Zimmerman to be the egg that is to be broken,. sacrificed, so that we have an omlet..Just like Stalin did to the Ukrainian land owners known as Kulacks whom he executed, (and used that egg example) in a soclal engineering plan to organize collectives during a Russian drought..Because as we have learned there seems to be the intention to use a collective data base to create collectives.where a utopia of uniforimity of conformity exists. As was done in Detroit, and Oakland California.only this time a poor whitey or blacky won’t be able to move,.

Just as with the energy plan where the cost of fuel used for energy and transportation has skyrocketed placing those on fixed or limited incomes dependent on government handouts because of this regimes socialist policies the sacrifice of Zimmerman must die for . This time to another communist plan. We all move together in centers designed and approved by comrades running the collective who (just like Obamacare aren’t in it) won’t and never live there.

Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts I’ve been listening to can’t seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this despicable example of socialist justice which will turn on an innocent staunch supporter and churn out vicious life threatening propaganda against him just to mete out diatribes to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage..The least they can do is get the facts out for tthe reason for the trial and its background instead of cope-ing with Obama moving the ball futhur and furthur away from what was done in a “Neighborhood Watch Area” while they’re milking the emotion response.routine like “big brother “does..
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-backroom/3044800/posts
An example of this is demonstrated by the “news” circulating in local black or mixed areas in publications like the The New Amsterdam (linked) that unquestionably follow, follow,follow, like martinets., Are they being duped by the handouts of lies they’re getting from this government. and unwilling accomplices to a horrendous and disgusting injustice ? Or are they contributing to it for the good of the collective ? It’s a question only they should be made to answer. For those vehicles which contributed to this demonstration of disinformation of a contemptable injustice should be asked and severly dealt with if they did.. It’s time to hold them accountable” ..

To reiterate; Many Neigborhood Watch areas consist of modest dwellings including the one Zimmerman was a “watch captain in are comprized of single dwelling units or as in Zimmermans case townhouses.His was a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families which banded together and set up patrols to protect their area.. In this case they were struggling with single and groups of young blacks from other “hoods” on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners in his area..Watch activities are closely co-ordinated with local police departments and follow very set protocols. Most conservative hosts demonstrate their ignorance.and are rendering no futhur information then their listeners get from MSM .thus allowing the MSM to set an agenda of distraction from this regimes history of corruption and scandal..

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3043817/posts

Usually such neighborhood watch areas are posted with a window or garden sign announcing that fact and those patrols will observe any one; black,white, green, or blue .If the area is “gated” because it is private property even stop and question them.. When an area is “gated” public right of way is restricted solely to the entrances and exits to it.. .That fact and the area wasn’t ever divulged by any of the so called media because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed, Because it couldn’t support any racial assertion or questioning of movement .for anyone entering knows and surrenders that right when entering it. ..

It would even explain Zimmerman’s action taken during his surveilance of Martin because this watch volunteer got out of his car and continued his observation on foot because he lost sight of Martin. In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. ....

According to the testimony there was an exchange after which as Zimmerman was going back to his vehicle Martin doubled back and attacked him and was severly beating him to the extent he feared for his life. To put it bluntly Saint Trayvon was a smart ass punk who attacked a guy with a gun and got killed in the struggle over it when he had the guy on the ground.beating the hell out of him..

Obama in his latest attempt threw more gas on the fire by portraying Saint Trayvon as what he was, an irreponsible pot head and subsequently found to be a petty thief ..That explains Bengahazi, where he left a top American diplomat and his aides die and the rest of his scandals like “travelgate II” Obama hopes his diatribes will hide. .

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, (very quickly dismissed ?) and a dark skinned “hispanic”. Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a white racist episode. Obama the boss of bosses and gets all the information about anybody ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining of the offending officer that Zimmerman fearlessly waged a campaign for and got.. .

The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . Used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edict-ed by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of the government we control step on you and squash you like some insect..

Why is this being done ? Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand ? Never looked into either by the House and certainly not even speculated about or reported on by the media. Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ? Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. What better way to discourage that by organizing the base for riots in the streets ?

It’s frustrating because crime in the black culture can’t be ignored like it has in the past, and the only people who can change things for the better prefer to blame everyone else for their problems. Zimmerman is just another way for them to do that.

Inquiring minds want to know how Rangel made enough money to owe so many income taxes that he has not paid.

Is the grievance industry that lucrative?

I sense that your boss senses that what we are eeeing here is actually a betrayal of the Civil Rights Movement by many who should know better, including those who did things to advacne it. I say that as one who was in it in the 1960’s. The results are not beneficial and I believe will backfore and harm what once were being carried out as admirable goals.
