Still Stuck On Stupid
Watching Kirsten Powers explaining to Jason Riley what it feels like to be “black” and oppressed was a hoot. She didn’t seem to understand the incongruity of what she was saying to a black man who grew up in an urban environment and became successful. She basically told Jason Riley he didn’t know anything about being black and poor. White liberals are still stuck on stupid. Bob Beckel is another one, ranting and raving about the “cops” being “too heavy handed” and how “white cops” are all racist and hate blacks. Still stuck on stupid and living in the 60s. Times have changed, liberals have not. They are still trying to “fix” something that can only be fixed by black Americans. If anyone thinks that black middle class Americans aren’t abandoning the cities for suburbia, think again. All the “fixes” aren’t going to change the dynamics of the inner city poor. We can build subsidized housing, provide people with EBT cards, subsidize energy use (HEAP), give clothing allotments, free medical care, free child care but, nothing will change until the mindset changes.
There is no “moral equivalency” when it comes to the police and looters. A kinder gentler police force is not the answer. The liberal media tries to paint a broad picture of our police officers as being worse than the thuggish creeps looting and destroying local business, throwing Molotov cocktails at them, shooting at them. They claim, because of this shooting, the blacks have every right to be offended and to express that offense by creating havoc. The thugs who are looting and burning aren’t offended by the shooting, they are opportunists and are “getting theirs”. When the townsfolk finally wake up to the destruction and are left with empty buildings where they used to shop, will they think it was all worth it? When they lose their tax base, will they feel all the chaos was worth it? Justice doesn’t come as swiftly as they want, our system of laws, and investigations, will not happen over night. Mob rule is not justice, it’s ignorance, and, every single person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Politicizing this particular incident is just wrong on every single level. Blacks are not preyed upon by police officers. To paint all of the police as racist is just plain stupid. The media and its coverage is a huge problem in Ferguson. It’s almost as if they want to see chaos and conflagration to keep “the big story” going.
“Some liberal outlets [are] creating almost a lynch mob mentality around this, the Huffington Post today, screaming banner headline ‘Arrest Him.’ Now, the Huffington Post, nor you or I, knows exactly what happened” he said. And “when you cross that line into becoming an advocate and to demanding that somebody be prosecuted before the facts are in, while the investigation is going on, you’re grandstanding, you’re trying to keep the story alive and I really think it’s troubling.”
Kurtz also criticized CNN for showing the house of accused officer Darren Wilson, stating, “It defies my understanding how you could put his life or the life of his family in danger by even briefly showing the house or naming the street.”
Note to Kurtz, they don’t care, they want blood to spill in the streets. It isn’t their blood or their kids.
Governor Nixon has decided Officer Wilson is guilty of murder and must be vigorously prosecuted. What kind of Governor comes out with that kind of talk….a Democrat ” acting stupidly”. It would seem he would prefer to toss aside the rule of law and the Constitution for political purposes to appease a lawless mob. What a disgusting human being.
The NAACP ran to the UN to file a complaint that too many blacks are being gunned down in the streets by police officers. Never mind they have zero facts.
This has become a full blown circus, no doubt about it.
What we have been contending with for the last two weeks;
Three of these “kids” have been shot and killed by their own homies. Their ages are from 9 to 15. The three who died were fifteen years old. They are dangerous kids with zero supervision. They have caused havoc within a 20 block radius including armed robbery in ” broad daylight”, breaking into homes, and other sundry criminal acts. I don’t have much hope for any of them and really think they will all be dead or in prison by the time they hit 18. We’re trying our best to nip it in the bud. Have had meet ups with undercover gang unit for a week. They really are the kids from hell.
