Ratigan: 'Default Position' In USA Is To Incarcerate Black Men
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 08/23/2010 3:14:58 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Dylan Ratigan's "Daily Rant" segment was a treasure trove of controversial statements today. You be the judge of which statement rates higher on the controversy-meter:

* Ratigan's claim that the "default position" in the USA is to incarcerate black men; or * Blogger Keli Goff's suggestion that to end the cycle of poverty among African-Americans, and to avoid burdening taxpayers, kids should be taught in school that not everyone should have children.

Ratigan's America-the-racist accusation is refuted by the facts, starting with the fact that the school district that spends more per pupil than any other in the USA is . . . that of the overwhelmingly African-American District of Columbia.

As for Goff [a young veteran of various Dem political campaigns], can you imagine the outrage and the accusations of eugenics if a conservative blogger, particularly one of pallor, called for kids to be taught not to have children as a solution for reducing the burden of African-Americans on taxpayers?

And I wonder if he watches the prison shows and the cop shows on his network? What a kookball.

Legalize some drugs and this will pretty much go away.

The DemocRats have been seeking new ways to put black men in jail since Reconstruction beginning with Jim Crow laws and going through with anti-drug laws and on and on.

“It made my heart ache, you know, to see all these beautiful black men in the joint. The warriors should be out there helping the masses. I felt that way, I was real naive. Six weeks I was up there and I talked to the brothers. I talked to ‘em, and ... thank God we got penitentiaries.” - Richard Pryor

Being a white liberal means not having to think. Some peopel are liberals simply because it is the easy path.

Welfare, inner city schools, and the bigotry of low expectations are the biggest prisons of all.

Teachers unions, false Revs., and Democrat politicians are the wardens.

Maybe it’s because they commit half the crime in the country.

Acutally, if SS is to get back to solvency, every woman of child bearing years should pop out about 5 to 6 kids.

You know, there are daily flights and ships heading to Africa all the time. If the USA isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be or you hate it, feel free to go elsewhere. We won’t stop you. Bye!!

Unfortunately for taxpayers, the only ones doing that are those on the public dole.(With the exception of the Duggars, that is.)

If you can’t feed them, don’t breed them. I know it sounds harsh, but to have an entire generation condemned to a life of poverty is unconsionable.

Ratigan is an idiot. He was one on CNBC, and now he has really gone off the reservation on MSNBC. Does anyone still watch that cable station???

Thanks. You’re welcome to use it.

I don’t even know how to set up a tagline, though I’m sure it’s quite simple.

arrested mostly in black enclaves, committing crime against other blacks; convicted by black jurys; you know the rest.

Ratigan is unintelligable. I think he is bipolar or something. He rarely makes conherent thoughts and speaks with what is called “rushed speech”.

The ‘’default position’’ currently in voge is to get as many Americans as possibile killed in the early part of this century, whites, blacks, latinos, indians etc. it’s OTW known as TREASON. All the taxpayer dollars spent on bombers, subs, carriers, satellites, etc. should be put to good use now instead of Wash. sitting around worrying about getting more queers in the military.

IIRC, the crime stats show that most black perps commit crimes on fellow blacks...so incarc erating blacks thus spares many blacks the agony of future crimes..

Don’t want to go to jail? Don’t break the law.

How come that simple fact is lost on so many ‘intelligent’ people?
