Mayoral candidate in New Jersey town allegedly caught on tape in racist rant
Daily News ^ | April 30, 2014

Marie Strumolo Burke, a Democrat running for mayor of Belleville, N.J., is allegedly heard on tape ranting about her fear that her village could become a ‘f------ n----- town.’

A candidate for Mayor of a small New Jersey town was caught on tape allegedly spewing a racist rant in which she said she didn’t want her village to become a “f—— n—– town.”

Marie Strumolo Burke, who is running for mayor in Belleville, N.J. as a Democrat, was reportedly heard making the vitriolic comments on a voicemail from 2013, according to NJ.com.

In the voicemail, left by the former chairman of Belleville’s planning board, Sam Papa, on the phone of Councilman Kevin Kennedy, a voice thought to be Burke’s can be heard in the background screaming the angry racist comment.

“This is terrible. This is terrible. This is gonna be a f—— n—– town,” Burke is allegedly heard yelling in the background, as Papa is heard discussing tax changes.

A forensics lab based in Michigan confirmed the voice on the tape was Burke’s, according to NJ.com.

It's a Democrat. The Ministry of Propaganda (formerly and incorrectly known as the US 'News' Media) will circle the wagons around her.

But Clive Bundy is a horrible racist because he doesn't want to see people of color trapped in entitlement schemes.

And Dan Sterling is a racist because he'd prefer not to be publicly cuckolded by his trampy girlfriend and black members of the NBA.

Y'see.

Burke should be banned for life from the NBA and forced to sell her basketball team.

Is that not similar to what Spike Lee had said about Brooklyn? Maybe he would have used the term “Honkey-town”... But I could be confusing that with “Funkey-town”?

She's low enough on the food chain that she can be sacrificed. The REAL question is why weren't the other members in the room willing to turn her in openly and right there?

Now here’s how it goes. She’ll apologize and walk away. Won’t cost her a dime and she’ll get elected.

Bellville, NJ borders Newark, NJ. Burke has a legitimate concern.

“Rev. Jesse Jackson referred to Jews as “Hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown” in January 1984 during a conversation with a black Washington Post reporter, Milton Coleman. Jackson had assumed the references would not be printed because of his racial bond with Coleman, but several weeks later Coleman permitted the slurs to be included far down in an article by another Post reporter on Jackson’s rocky relations with American Jews.”

Democrats, like Orwell’s proles, are not really people, in the sense that they have all the rights of people but none of the concomitant responsibilities.
A moderate Republican could weather something like this, while a conservative would be lynched.

All that you say, true. But I was sort of glad to see the Dan Sterling incident take the limelight off Bundy.

(as to Dan Sterling’s girlfriend - I am guessing you would hit it?)

Democrats are not “diverse” when it comes to housing. Lilly whites do not want to live with non lilly democrats. If anyone doubts this they can check the diversity of San Fransisco, Carmel, Boulder, Aspen, Vail, or any other lilly white stronghold.

“A forensics lab based in Michigan confirmed the voice...”

I’m not aware of any capability to do this (I’m a Software Architect) - the concept of a “voice print” doesn’t exist like it does for finger prints.

See, it's only an allegation, because this racist #### is running for office for the Demagogic Party. A basketball team owner -- and lifelong Democrat -- doesn't get that kind of kid-gloves treatment from the Partisan Media Shills, although they avoid the D-word when talking about him. Thanks Laz.

Certain folks just are meant to rule. In the Burke case, don’t you know donuts fear her?

As Machiavelli said, if a Prince (well, Princess in this case) must choose between being loved and being feared, it is better to be feared than loved.

Heed the wisdom of the donuts.

Anyway, they are ever so much more to be liked than Lamestream Media talking heads or the professional race card crowd.

Wouldn’t you prefer a dozen assorted donuts to the same number of talking heads or race card players in your home?

You may be right and I’ll boy to your superior knowledge. But the woman on the tape doesn’t know they can’t prove it’s her so she’ll admit it once she’s confronted with the “evidence”.

I have not worked with this biometric signature personally, but I am familiar with others. I know it is used successfully in some areas, for example customer identification by some financial institutions. Scientifically, it seems plausible to me. If I were doing it, I would try doing a combined spectral analysis using FFT on a reference signal (a single word) to get intensity, and frequency as a 2D siganture then compare that with the test signature(s). I’m guessing that this would be so unique that getting above some threshold (e.g. 98% RMS) would be sufficient to identify an individual. In a real world application you wouldn’t be able to match a word per se, so it would proabably require something more general to train on a sampled voice library to compare versus test signal(e.g. neural network or similar classfier).

There is a capability to identify voices within about 95%. It’s accepted as forensic evidence in a number of states. Was first accepted in Michigan as far back as the 1960’s.
