  • MSNBC panel: Trump slogan ‘Make America Great’ proves supporters are racist

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 8/2/15 | Joe Newby
    For liberals, everything is racist, even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The latest idiotic claim of racism came from a panel at MSNBC, which actually concluded that Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great,” proves that his supporters — and there’s a lot of them — are all racists. A post at The Right Scoop shows that this kind of moronic “analysis” wasn’t confined to MSNBC.

    President Barack Obama will deliver the eulogy for the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people killed in last week's shootings at a Charleston, South Carolina, church, the White House said Monday. Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will all attend funeral services Friday for Pinckney, a state senator and pastor of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, one of the oldest and most influential African-American churches in the U.S. Pinckney and eight other people were shot to death last week at a Wednesday night Bible study session.

    NAACP leader of Washington state chapter lied about being black, parents say BY JASON SILVERSTEIN An NAACP leader and prominent civil rights activist in Washington state has been pretending to be black for years, her parents told local media Thursday. Rachel Dolezal, who heads Spokane’s NAACP chapter and teaches Africana studies at Eastern Washington University, refused to directly answers any questions about her alleged racial ruse after it was reported. A KXLY reporter bluntly asked her, “Are you African-American?” After a stunned pause, she replied: "“I don’t understand the question."

    Regardless of what Democrats and the media say, White Privilege is hogwash. The word privilege means “a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people.” Privilege is, therefore, not based on accomplishment but rather something given by another person of entity. The most glaring example of Black Privilege is that which is enjoyed by Barack Obama. He is at best an incompetent fool but more properly an enemy of America who Black Privilege status keeps him from being described this way. In almost every walk of life from schools to workplaces...

Mr. Carter spoke on a range of subjects with the magazine, including campaign spending and lobbyists, but he made a point to say that the U.S. still is lacking in terms of safeguarding civil rights. “The recent publicity about mistreatment of black people in the judicial and police realm has been a reminder that the dreams of the civil rights movement have not been realized. […] Many Americans still have racist tendencies or feelings of superiority to people of color,”...

    The new nation under Obama is now in the throes of a staggering Crime Wave, the likes of which America has not experienced in nearly twenty years. A WALL STREET JOURNAL (WSJ) expose of what the Ferguson effect really means puts up crime stats that really are hard to believe. “Shooting incidents are up 500% in an East Harlem precinct compared with last year.” But what is the larger theme behind this skein of shootings, stabbings and raw violence? The Obama administration’s theme of hatred of white, heterosexual males is the real story here. Ever since his diversity crowd grabbed...

The first was a commencement speech at Tuskegee University in Alabama, and the other was at the opening of the new Whitney Museum of American Art in downtown New York City. She was accused of "playing the race card" by emphasizing ethnic divisions, taking offense in a place where none was intended, when she could be elevating the conversation about what unites us. The National Review calls her a "racial scold" for suggesting that minority children...

    In the latest chapter of the left’s ongoing campaign to immortalize the grandfather clause of social justice, but more specifically to compensate America along racial lines, comes the politically convenient creation of “White Privilege”. Because the word “racism” obviously doesn’t denote enough singular intent to indict white America as the sole purveyors of hate, victimization has now evolved into blaming the pale subjects of suburbia as the greatest impetus for urban crime, poverty, civil unrest, and societal division. If “White Privilege” is truly designed to infer advantage or favoritism, then why did I grow up in a blue collar home,...

Still, key policy positions — particularly his changing stance on immigration and his attacks on public sector unions — reveal a carefully directed appeal. In 2011, Walker successfully sponsored legislation repealing most collective bargaining rights for government employees.

    Two police officers in Ferguson, MO were shot at a protest early Thursday against alleged racism in the department and the city itself. It was not enough that the chief of police had just resigned. It was not enough that a local judge had quit. It was not enough that the Department of Justice had exonerated former officer Darren Wilson. No–the mob, told by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that Ferguson was still guilty of racism, wanted “justice.”

    The cold-blooded murder of two New York City policemen as they sat in their car is not only an outrage but also a wake-up call. It shows, in the most painful way, the high cost of having demagogues, politicians, mobs and the media constantly taking cheap shots at the police. Those cheap shots are in fact very expensive shots, not only to the police themselves but to the whole society. Someone once said that civilization is a thin crust over a volcano. The police are part of that thin crust. We have seen before our own eyes, first in Ferguson,...

    Veteran civil rights leader Al Sharpton, who has tried to play the statesman during heated protests over police shootings, now faces accusations of incitement after the murder last weekend of two officers in New York City. Sharpton has worked over the years to shed his reputation as a firebrand, and in recent months had provoked the ire of younger protesters who favor a more confrontational approach. Sharpton, for instance, angered some young activists by rebuffing them when they unexpectedly asked to speak at a march his nonprofit group organized in Washington. But after the deaths of the two officers, momentum...

    Since last summer, a lie has overtaken significant parts of the country, resulting in growing mass hysteria. That lie holds that the police pose a mortal threat to black Americans—indeed that the police are the greatest threat facing black Americans today. Several subsidiary untruths buttress that central myth: that the criminal-justice system is biased against blacks; that the black underclass doesn’t exist; and that crime rates are comparable between blacks and whites—leaving disproportionate police action in minority neighborhoods unexplained without reference to racism. The poisonous effect of those lies has now manifested itself in the cold-blooded assassination of two NYPD...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The gunman who fatally shot two New York City police officers watched a protest over police-involved deaths earlier this month, but did not participate. Investigators say Ismaaiyl Brinsley was at a protest in New York's Union Square on Dec. 1, before a grand jury decided against charging a white officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man.

    Tis the season to be jolly and I'm not jolly. I'm disappointed and pissed off at our President, liberal politicians & community leaders in general for allowing this great country to descend into a tangle of hate, prejudice and borderline anarchy. I'm angry at gutless mayors who side against their own police departments to curry favor with rabble rousing public figures who are in fact, no account racists. I'm outraged that two police officers were killed in the line of duty because of the racial hatred stoked by our President and dirt bags like Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson ....
  • Flashback: Al Sharpton told those Upset with Garner Death to "Fight Back" Against Police

    In the aftermath of the death of Eric Garner, Al Sharpton told those upset with the actions of police to “fight back” against them. In the time since his statement, police have been attacked by angry people upset with the deaths of Michael Brown and Garner. This violence reached its highest point this past weekend when a man murdered two NYPD officers in cold blood as they sat in their police cars. Sharpton, speaking to a crowd at Garner’s funeral, told people to fight back. “You can’t stop us on this one,” Sharpton told the crowd. “God will take care...

    Wickedness has darkened this season of lights in Brooklyn. It is no surprise or accident that a ghoul like Ismaaiyl Brinsley bathed himself in messages of hate, racial division and anger and then chose to destroy lives. But Brinsley wasn’t alone in his racially soaked hatred of the police. For starters, a mob has Brinsley’s back. This seemingly disconnected mob has been on the prowl in the months since America learned of Ferguson, Missouri. They’ve smashed up windows of banks in Berkeley, burned up bakeries in Ferguson, and looted, burned, shot, robbed and killed across the nation. But such mobs...
  • Walmart Asked to Stop Bankrolling Sharpton After New York Police Murders

    Here is a letter I sent today to C. Douglas McMillon, Walmart President and CEO: We ask that Walmart end its financial support of Al Sharpton and his organization, the National Action Network (NAN). The cold-blooded murder of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, follows weeks of Sharpton's vilification of law enforcement personnel. As you know, Walmart has helped bankroll Sharpton for years. Most recently, the company was a sponsor of Sharpton's 60thbirthday party in New York City, which reportedly was a fundraiser for NAN that raised a million dollars. We have repeatedly raised...

    For weeks after a Staten Island grand jury declined to indict a white police officer in the chokehold death of a black man, civil rights rallies in New York City had gathered momentum and spurred dialogue among activists and city officials. But the conversation, in one shocking instant on Saturday, took an unexpected turn. One day after two police officers were fatally shot at point-blank range as they sat in their squad car in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, leaders of several groups who had been rallying for criminal justice reform scrambled to condemn the killings while still keeping the...

    Civil rights leaders Sunday condemned the ambush killings of two New York police officers and expressed fear that the backlash over the bloodshed could derail the protest movement that has grown out of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Related Stories In the raw hours following the killing of the officers, police union officials and politicians accused those who have protested the deaths of Garner and Brown of fanning anti-police fervor. Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolman's Benevolent Association in New York, said there was "blood on the hands" of demonstrators and elected officials who have criticized police...
