    - FrontPage Magazine - - Obama: Back to the Racist FuturePosted By Arnold Ahlert On August 28, 2013 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 36 Comments America is enduring an ever-increasing spiral of heinous black-on-white violence. Less than a week after 22-year-old Australian baseball player Christopher Lane was allegedly executed by three “bored” wannabe gang-bangers, 88-year-old World War II veteran Delbert “Shorty” Belton was allegedly beaten to death by two 16-year-old black American teens, Demetrius Glenn and Kenan D. Adams-Kinard, both of whom have histories of violent crime. In Poughkeepsie, NY, 20-year-old Javon Tyrek Rogers has been charged with first degree murder and first degree burglary in the killing of 99-year-old Fannie...
  • Let's have the conversation about race

    Americans are told we need to have a national conversation in which we talk about race. And yet, when we have horrific crimes with white victims where the alleged perpetrators are African-American or Latino, we're told that we can't talk about race. This isn't true when the roles are reversed. If the victims are African-American or Latino, and the alleged perpetrator is white, we talk about race until our throats go dry. Confused? Join the club. If Americans don't understand it, how are we to explain any of this to the grieving family of Christopher Lane, a 22-year-old college baseball...
  • Oklahoma Gov. Fallin: 'Would Be Nice' If Obama Sent Condolences to Slain Student's Family

    Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Sunday that Australian college student Christopher Lane's death wasn't about gun control -- "it was about murder" -- and she believes it "would be nice" if President Barack Obama would express his condolences to Lane's family. "I certainly am going to say something on behalf of the state of Oklahoma, to the family," the Republican governor told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. "It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences, how very sorry we are." Chancey Allen Luna, 16, James Francis Edwards Jr., 15, and Michael Dewayne Jones, 17....

    Edwards’ Sister: He’s Not Vicious, He Just Likes to Fight, and He’s Not in a Gang, He Just Hangs Out with Gangsters The sister of alleged teen killer of the Australian baseball player, James Edwards, Rachel Padilla, appeared on CNN tonight. She gives off a strong whiff of denial. I knew he had a Facebook page, but I never looked at it. And it’s hard to believe that he will be–that he would even put things on there like that. CNN host Erin Burnett had read Padilla some of Edwards’ more offensive posts, and tweets. In terms of speculation...
  • Hate Crimes, Trayvon Martin, and Christopher Lane

    In the United States, if you are convicted of a hate crime, your sentence is usually extended 15 years or so. This trend of criminalizing thought - as noble as it seems in the case of hate crimes - is a dangerous precedent. Allow me to explain. The goal of the state in law and law enforcement is to seek justice for those who have been wronged. This is a simple statement that underpins conservative civic theory, limited government, and a victim- not criminal-centered approach to justice, but it certainly goes against most of legal philosophy today. And I am...
  • If G.W. Bush Had a Son, He'd Look Like Christopher Lane

    Imagine the Left's reaction if the shocking, inter-racial murder of Christopher Lane had occurred when G.W Bush was president and he had stated, "If I had a son, he'd look like Christopher," or "Christopher Lane could've been me 35 years ago." Undoubtedly, the race-peddlers and entire grievance industry would've interpreted his comments as a subtle war declaration against Black America. Yet, when President Obama made these statements about Trayvon Martin, the Lefties claimed that he wasn't being divisive, he was simply "keepin' it real." The racial dynamics of both Christopher Lane and Trayvon Martin's scenarios have many people focusing...

    When news of the three teens who went out for a thrill-killing and shot and killed an Austrailian jogger in the back reached former Florida GOP Congressman Allen West, he took to the social media and called out, among others, President Barack Obama. Melbourne, Australia native Christopher Lane, 22, attended Oklahomas East Central University on a baseball scholarship when he was senselessly murdered just for fun. While Australias former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer blames the U.S. for the killing and has called for a boycott, West notes the sound of crickets emanating from the White House especially after...
