The Cop-Killing Cult of Larry Davis

Not only is that a terrific idea, it actually happened once upon a time, just outside New Orleans. Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee got tired of the racist rants by the professionally agitated agitators. Seems Lee’s deputies had been giving the criminals a hard time by… you know… enforcing the law and… protecting public safety and… arresting criminals for their crimes. After endless whining from the projects, Lee simply obliged and pulled his deputies out. It wasn’t long before the enemies of law enforcement decided to change their tune. In cities like New York, police have had such success, for so long, the wacktivists and their followers have forgotten that the cops are literally saving their lives. Maybe it’s time they were reminded.

You KNOW it's got to be something really, really gross for a hardcore leftist like Jon Stewart to raise a stink.

“Homeland” Under Attack

Hah! Too true. "Homeland" is remarkable because its terrorists are still terrorists. ...as opposed to a zillion other movies and TV shows where they're reinvented as... ummm... white supremacists! Yeah, that's the ticket! And sometimes it's excruciatingly obvious. On its way from the page to the screen, Tom Clancey's novel The Sum Of All Fears was completely reengineered to turn the terrorists into something politically correct. If it weren't for he rising threat from the Russians (who are, thankfully, white, quite literally Caucasian in fact) the same couple dozen Aryan Nations losers would have to be resurrected hundreds of time to provide the pretend villains Hollywood needs without offending the very real terrorists.

I'm reminded of a classic joke from Saturday Night Live, delivered by Seth Myers in Weekend Update. It seems Islamic leaders were urging their followers not to publicly object to Christmas displays because taking such a position could "contribute to a backlash" against Moslems. And the punchline: "Also contributing to a backlash against Moslems: Terrorism." LOL! So the terrorists are mad about being IDed as terrorists? Oh the humanities! A rather prominent leader of another faith once suggested against trying to address a splinter in someone else's eye when you've got a 2x4 in your own. The whiny Pakistanis need to look within and realize their bad image is merely an accurate one.

Speed Kills Racial Profiling Study

But surely it must be the white racism that magically CAUSES the blacks to kill each other! Right?

I would ask why this story never saw the light of day but Ann already provides the obvious answer. IT DOESN'T FIT "THE NARRATIVE." Happens all the time. In the 1990s, the disclosure of unprocessed and incomplete mortgage lending data under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act revealed minorities were more likely to be turned down for mortgages than whites. This data did not include information on the minorities' or whites' scientifically documented credit worthiness, nor did media reports mention that the disparity was WIDER when mortgages were awarded strictly on the basis of numerical scores and the lender didn't even know the applicants' race. Never mind that. The professionally offended race warlords declared "redlining" and "mortgage discrimination" and extorted ridiculous handouts from the major banks and mortgage lenders (part of what later led to the 2008 crash). The banks weakly protested that they were using much more data than just superficial factors like income, some of which they couldn't divulge, but they generally just folded in the face of endless screaming and pickets. But wait.... After some banks protested a little more loudly that they were being unfairly accused, the University of Colorado got hold of much more complete data showing ALL factors considered in mortgage lending decisions. Titled "Mortgage Practices in Colorado: A Second Look," the CU study documents, using complete data instead of superficial impressions and baseless innuendo, that there was NO racial difference in who got mortgages and who didn't, once you controlled for income, credit rating, credit history, employment history, assets, and ALL of the factors lenders actually consider. In fact, the study seemed to indicate lenders were more likely to cut some slack over previous credit problems for minority applicants than for white applicants. Mortgage discrimination decisively disproven. This was at least 15 years ago, but the lie about mortgage discrimination endures. Nope, the narrative trumps all.
Why not Taylor Swift? She'd be no less preposterous than any other woman. Except perhaps Lady Liberty. A good choice would probably be the first woman president, but that's assuming her presidency will be a great thing for the country and no one knows that. Whoever she is, perhaps she should be on the the new $3.00 bill... or perhaps the $15.00 bill starting in 2100. Until then, the only new face that belongs on our currency is Ronald Reagan. Perhaps he can replace the current occupant of the dime, since Reagan actually HELPED the U.S. economy.
Sorry but Todd Akin went down in a stupefying act of political hara kiri. His was an utterly inexplicable "unforced error." By the year 2012, it was utterly inconceivable that he, and every other pro-life political candidate, didn't have a carefully crafted somber, palatable, response to the absolutely INEVITABLE leftist media trope "what about abortion in cases of rape or incest?" He should have known it was coming and seen it coming a mile away. But he didn't. Where the heII had he been for the past 39 years as the pro abortion crowd kept throwing out that same old chestnut over and over as if it were a silver bullet against anyone trying to protect life? The fact that he blundered into awkward, offensive (to some) phraseology, and then his utterly preposterous assertion about reproductive plumbing "shutting down" in cases of rape is almost beside the point. What mattered that he was surprised. Surprised? Akin should have been eagerly waiting to get hit with that one particular question... for weeks. Through dozens of interviews. He should have had every consultant, fellow politician, friend, relative he could find help him craft and vet a response and then rehearsed it until he was saying it in his sleep. Instead Akin went into the lions' den and was ambushed, SHOCKER ....by a lion! I'm sure his heart was...is... in the right place. It's his brain I'm not so sure about.
Hey, Mussolini made the trains run on time. And Hitler reinvigorated the German economy! Those who refuse to see evil as evil will probably be the last to die. ...after the rest of us who confront evil when it comes to get us all.
