The research indicates that there is no evidence of racial bias in police shootings. "When it comes to police using lethal force on suspects, there is no racial bias whatsoever. In fact, the numbers show that white suspects are more likely to be shot than blacks." Cops also are not generally "racist". Many of them are themselves minorities.
Thomas Sowell comments on Heather MacDonald's book "Are Cops Racist?" Read it. The facts "devastate many a fashionable notion in the media, in politics and in academia."
Moderate Muslims are Made in Our Image. Excerpts:
[T]he much cherished "moderate/radical" Muslim dichotomy is... entirely based on Western assumptions that have nothing to do with the realities of Islam... what the West and its followers call "moderate Islam" and "moderate Muslims" is simply a slur against Islam and Muslims, a distortion of Islam...
[T]he Muslim has his own unique and ancient worldview and set of principles -- which in turn prompt behavior that is deemed "radical" by Western standards (falsely assumed "universal" standards)... This view, which arrogantly brushes aside Islam's role in the Muslim's life, doesn't seem ethnocentric because the "us" is not believed to be particular (Western or Christian) but universal... PDF
Regardless of who instigated or engineered the meeting, it was planned, and Lynch was not taken by surprise. Some other crap she's been "on board" with:
Lynch and inaction with regard to IRS abuse of process
Lynch lying about "sanctuary cities"
Lynch filing civil rights lawsuit over the Ferguson non-event ... More on that...
Lynch vowing to prosecute anti-Muslim speech after San Bernadino
Lynch censoring Orlando shooting transcripts, and "losing" the terrorist's complicit wife ...
Enough of this already. Quoting Daniel Greenfield today:
"What exactly is homegrown about Islam? Nothing. Despite Obama's claims, there is nothing American about Islam.
The FBI must start profiling again in these national security (not mere "criminal") investigations. Enough with the political correctness. The Westminster Institute published a must-read article a few years ago: The Political Warfare Campaign Against U.S. Counter-Terrorism Experts that explains how the Obama administration eviscerated our agents' ability to track these people.
For godssake, mothers going through a divorce are placed under more scrutiny than these sickfuck ideologue pieces of filth. And let's stop with the headscratching over the "radicalization" of the "U.S. citizen children" of ideologue immigrants. Taqiyya. Children obtain and then internalize beliefs and attitudes from their parents and immediate community. This isn't about "religion". This is about political Islam, a despicable and delusional worldview that must be recognized as such. Islam doesn't get off the hook by claiming to be a "religion". A belief system does not mandate the waging of war for the control of land, or the imposition by force of laws and rules upon other people. Only beliefs, harmless assembly, prayer, rituals, traditions and the like are protected by the First Amendment. Not actively subversive anti-U.S. politics. And certainly not murder.
It's long past time we started charging every person who knew what was going on in these terrorism cases and failed to speak up. Or who should have known: if criminal charges -- preferably treason -- can't stick, then at a minimum civil charges should include forfeiture of all assets to help fund investigations (same as we do in drug cases) as well as deportation when possible.
And Obama, you specious prevaricator: criticizing "Islam" and Islamic jihad is not criticizing "a religion", nor is it criticizing "all Muslims" (a choice by the way, not an immutable characteristic). It is criticism of a dangerous political ideology. Like Naziism. (When we went to war with Germany were we hating on "all Germans"?)
This (by both Obama and Clinton, coordinating) is obfuscating: "This was an act of terror. This was also an act of hate." No -- these are jihadists who think they are furthering a holy war.
The jihadist pig himself was AC/DC. He cased other potential venues such as DisneyWorld. Yes political Islam hates homosexuality (although it's widespread in many of these cultures, see, e.g. Boys of the Taliban.) Fundamental Islam has many "hates" -- Jews, Christians, Hindus, free speech, liberty, women's sexuality, etc. It's a hate group. The Pulse nightclub was opportunistic.The slaughter in Orlando was not an "attack on gays" any more than it specifically was an "attack on Hispanics", or an "attack on nightclubbers", or an "attack on Floridians". It was an attack on Americans.
The cause of this mess was, at the source, ignorant voters enchanted by promises of free and cheap stuff and "social justice", in other words, the democratically-elected Hugo Chavez and his successor and their socialist policies. Excerpts from Hinderaker's article, NPR + NYT: A Recipe for Cluelessness, which is worth a read, along with the spinmeistering NPR interview (which I will not link to here):
What happens when a National Public Radio host interviews a New York Times reporter on the subject of Venezuela's economic collapse? You get a perfect storm of cluelessness...
First, spend whatever it takes for us to win wars and battles, and always spend more treasure for defense than blood... Provide the best equipment and the best training possible. Make sure each man who risks his life in combat for us has the same hardware that we would want if that man were our father or brother or son.
Second, never let crass politics or chic social engineering endanger our men in
military actions or operations. This means not just that we do not send in forces or
Third, it means that our goals in military actions deserve to
Fourth, our goal any time we fight must always be to win.
[T]hey also deserve from us the best leadership that we can give them. That ought to be high on the minds of voters in November.
And where is Obama himself this Memorial Weekend? Coming off of his suckup tour of Communist Viet Nam. Daniel Greenfield has a few words to say about that in "Obama and Ho Chi Minh: Embracing Evil". (Defending Communist terror and demeaning American sacrifices.)
UPDATE: More from Greenfield on Memorial Day: Dishonoring Veterans, Honoring Terrorists.
Unfortunately, his photo at graduation caught the attention of WaPo and other lib-agenda'd media in part for the wrong reasons -- pandering made obvious by the denigrating inclusion of ignoramita such as that Idrache "worked his way through" USMA. (All attendees "work their way through" in the full-time W2 employ of the Army, and no where else.)
LT Idrache now goes to Fort Rucker, Alabama, for Army aviation training. Thank you and best wishes, LT, and to all of the grads.
Daniel Greenfield has written another brilliant must-read article at FrontPageMag.com. Some excerpts:
It's never going to stop unless we shut the door. ...Even without the Sunnis and Shiites competing to give each other machete haircuts every sunny morning, there would still be a permanent Muslim refugee crisis. The vast majority of civil wars over the last ten years have taken place in Muslim countries. Muslim countries are also some of the poorest in the world. And Muslim countries also have high birth rates. Combine violence and poverty with a population boom and you get a permanent migration crisis...
The Muslim world is expanding unsustainably. In the Middle East and Asia, Muslims tend to underperform their non-Muslim neighbors both educationally and economically. Oil is the only asset that gave Muslims any advantage and in the age of fracking, its value is a lot shakier than it used to be. The Muslim world had lost its old role as the intermediary between Asia and the West. And it has no economic function in the new world except to blackmail it by spreading violence and instability.
Muslim countries with lower literacy rates, especially for women, are never going to be economic winners at any trade that doesn't come gushing out of the ground. Nor will unstable dictatorships ever be able to provide social mobility or access to the good life. At best they'll hand out subsidies for bread.
The Muslim world has no prospects for getting any better. There are only two solutions; war or migration. Either you fight and take what you want at home. Or you go abroad and take what you want there.
"American troops are in action, they are being killed, they are in combat. And these semantic backflips to avoid using the term combat is a disservice to those who are out there putting their lives on the line." More.
"The university setting is where students are most subject to the assignment of group identity, to indoctrination of radical political orthodoxies, to legal inequality, to intrusion into private conscience, and to assaults upon the moral reality of individual rights and responsibilities...
"FIRE effectively and decisively defends American liberties on behalf of thousands of students and faculty on our nation's campuses. In case after case, FIRE brings about favorable resolutions for these individuals who continue to be challenged by those willing to deny fundamental rights and liberties within our institutions of higher education..." To see more, go to https://www.thefire.org/.
"I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan's agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time politicians put them first!"
Of course, the media "pundits", whether liberal or Republican establishment, dishonestly want you to think that this extortion really is about nonsense they have ginned up, such as "insulting tweets" or imagined bigotry or vulgarity or Trump being big government, or some kind of "ideological divide". Examples: Rick Klein, ABC. Greg Sargent, WaPo. Eric Bradner, CNN. NYTimes. Reena Flores, CBS. Philip Rucker, Paul Kane, Robert Costa, WaPo. Dana Milbank, WaPo. Etc.
Now we will see which politicians -- and media -- are most bought
and sold on K Street.
