Five Myths of the ‘Racist’ Criminal Justice System – Larry Elder – Townhall Conservative Columnists

Five Myths of the ‘Racist’ Criminal Justice System – Larry Elder – Townhall Conservative Columnists.

Calling America’s criminal justice system “racist” is not confined to “civil rights leaders” like the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Then-Sen. Barack Obama, during the 2008 presidential campaign, said it, too. Blacks and whites, said Obama, “are arrested at very different rates, are convicted at very different rates (and) receive very different sentences … for the same crime.”

When the man who became president of the United States says this — the No. 1 law enforcement officer — it must, therefore, be true.

Let’s examine five major assumptions behind this assertion.

1) Blacks are arrested at higher rates compared to whites — but wrongly so.

Not true. While only 13 percent of the population, blacks accounted for 28 percent of nationwide arrests in 2010 and 38.1 percent of arrests for violent crime (murders, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault). But are they unfairly arrested? Studies find that arrest rates by race are comparable to the race of suspect identification by victims.

For example, in a given city, x number of robbery victims describe their assailants as black — whether or not the suspect has been apprehended. It turns out that the race of those arrested matches the percentage given by victims. This has been found repeatedly across the country, in all categories of crime where the race of an assailant is identified. So unless the victims are deliberately misidentifying their assailants — unconcerned about whether the suspect is apprehended and knowingly give a false race — blacks are not being “over-arrested.”

2) Blacks are convicted at higher rates and given longer sentences than whites for the same crime.

Not true. Differences in conviction and sentencing rates by race are due to differences in the gravity of the criminal offenses, prior records or other legal variables. A 1994 Justice Department survey of felony cases in the country’s 75 largest urban areas actually found lower felony prosecution rates for blacks than whites and that blacks were less likely to be found guilty at trial.

3) The sentence disparity between powder and crack cocaine is racist and accounts for a large percentage of imprisoned blacks.

Not true. Concerned about the deadly effect of crack within their own communities, black members of Congress led the charge to pass the 1986 federal drug laws. The bill that was passed — which included the crack/powder sentencing disparity — did so with the support of the majority of black congresspersons. None at the time objected to the sentencing disparity as “racist.”

In 2006, the feds tried 5,619 crack sellers, and 4,495 of them were black — out of the 562,000 blacks in state and federal prisons at the end of that year. Add in county and city jails, and the figure rises to 858,000. And states’ crack cocaine laws are not the culprits. Only 13 states employ differing sentencing guidelines for crack vs. powder — and their differential is much smaller than that of the feds.

4) The “War on Drugs” accounts for a large number of blacks behind bars.

Not true. In 2010, blacks were 31.8 percent of all arrests for drug crimes. But arrests for drug offenses are only 12.4 percent of all non-traffic arrests in the country and accounted for 14.2 percent of the offenses for which blacks were arrested.

5) More blacks are in jail than in college.

Not true. “More blacks (are) in jail than college, in every state,” said Jesse Jackson in 2007. That same year, presidential candidate Sen. Obama, echoed: “More young black men languish in prison than attend colleges and universities across America.”

If Jackson and Obama refer to black men of the usual college-age years, their claim is not even remotely true. The Washington Post “Fact Checker” wrote: “According to 2005 Census Bureau statistics, the male African-American population of the United States aged between 18 and 24 numbered 1,896,000. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 106,000 African-Americans in this age group were in federal or state prisons at the end of 2005. … If you add the numbers in local jail (measured in mid-2006), you arrive at a grand total of 193,000 incarcerated young black males, or slightly over 10 percent.

“According to the same census data, 530,000 of these African-American males, or 28 percent, were enrolled in colleges or universities … in 2005. That is five times the number of young black men in federal and state prisons and two and a half times the total number incarcerated. If you expanded the age group to include African-American males up to 30 or 35, the college attendees would still outnumber the prisoners.”

Racism against blacks exists, but it is no longer a meaningful obstacle to success. People are not angels. Some people are rotten. Humans make mistakes — and always will. But the facts do not show a “racist criminal justice system.”

There may be votes in teaching people to think like victicrats. But the problem of the high rates of black imprisonment will not be solved by falsely screaming racism.

Democrats Responsible for Black Culture of Anger – Tea Party Nation

Democrats Responsible for Black Culture of Anger – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Lloyd Marcus

Black twenty-year-old male Danielle Simpson with two black associates were interrupted by 84 year old Geraldine Davidson while in the process of burglarizing her home. They duct taped her mouth, bound her hands and legs and threw the white former school teacher and church organist into the trunk of her own car. Ms Davidson was severely brutalized before the trio eventually tied a rope attached to a cinder block around her legs and threw her, still alive, into the river.

Brutal crimes are not unique.

But, here is what makes this case remarkable. For seven hours, Simpson rode around in Ms Davidson’s car stopping for fast food and opening the truck to show off his victim to his black friends. Due to fingerprints left on the car, detectives estimate that around ten people viewed Ms Davidson in the trunk.

Incredibly, not one person called the police or lobbied to set the poor elderly woman free. What could possibly harden these black youths to such an extent?

Perhaps one of the detective investigating the case nailed it when he described the black criminals and their friends as part of a “culture of anger”.

For the murder of Ms Davidson, in 2009, Danielle Simpson was executed by Lethal injection in Texas. http://www.clarkprosecutor.org/html/death/US/simpson1183.htm

Fast forward to the democrat led Trayvon Martin rallies across America. If justice was their true motivation, they would allow the case to unfold. To demand Zimmerman be arrested without knowing the facts is absurd and irresponsible. The democrat’s obvious purpose for their race rallies is to fuel the eternal flames of their well-nurtured “culture of anger”.

Sadly, democrat efforts to cultivate black anger is bearing much fruit. Before the Trayvon Martin incident, black flash mobs were attacking white strangers across America. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XBExloL9y8

The horrific rape/murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom received scant publicity because it was seen as politically incorrect to publicize a beautiful white couple being brutalized by five black thugs.

Exploiting Trayvon Martin to fuel the Democrat‘s culture of anger, Democrat US Rep. Bobby Rush spoke to the House wearing a “hoodie”. Rush assumed Martin was racially profiled and said, “just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” Yet another example of a Democrat jumping the gun to further their storyline before all the facts are in. http://www.masslive.com/politics/index.ssf/2012/03/us_rep_bobby_rus…

Sixties radical, Angela Davis faithfully contributed to the Democrat’s culture of anger. Davis said Trayvon’s story is not unique. According to Davis, blacks are physically attacked by whites all the time. Davis also accused white America of systematic racism against blacks. Will someone please inform Ms Davis that a black man is leader of the free world solely because millions of white Americans voted for him. At only 12% of the US population, black votes alone could not have put the Obama’s in the White House.

http://newsroom.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/01/angela-davis-trayvons-stor…

The Trayvon Martin incident has afforded the Democrats a golden opportunity to build upon their culture of anger. Al Sharpton said “Enough is enough!” http://www.cfnews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/news/article.html/con… Jessie Jackson said, “Blacks are under attack!” http://townhall.com/columnists/larryelder/2012/03/29/creators_oped/…

So, according to US Rep. Bobby Rush, Angela Davis, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, the majority of Democrat leaders, pundits and the democrat supportive mainstream media, black Americans are routinely physically attacked by whites. Is there any wonder why millions of black Americans are fuming in a culture of anger?

Well, allow me to crush the Democrat’s perfect liberal paradigm with the truth/facts. F.B.I and U.S. Justice Dept. statistics confirm blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites than white violence against blacks. http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-lafayette/federal-statistics-of-black-on-white-violence-with-links-and-mathematical-extrapolation-formulas

Ninety percent of the victims of race crimes are white. http://www.topix.com/forum/state/wv/TBN2MRV4327LH92PN

What are the consequences of the Democratic Party keeping black America stewing in their well-crafted culture of anger? Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife. Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 percent against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanics. Who can deny, black criminals are angry at whites and fellow blacks. Blacks are seven times more likely to end up in prison.

http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-lafayette/federal-statistics-of-black-on-white-violence-with-links-and-mathematical-extrapolation-formulas

Folks, I am not one for frivolous lawsuits. Still, I can not help contemplating a lawsuit all the same: We The People vs the Democratic Party for severe damages resulting from them creating and years of fueling a culture of anger in Black America.

Where are Jesse and Al? – Tea Party Nation

Where are Jesse and Al? – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

There has been a racist attack.  Quick someone call Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  Wait, I don’t think they will be riding in on this one.

 From Fox Toledo:

 Saturday afternoon around 4:45 p.m., 78-year-old Dallas Watts was walking home from the gas station at the corner of Starr and White in East Toledo.

 He was confronted by six juveniles between the ages of 11 to 17, both white and black, and for the next three or four minutes was nearly beaten to death because of, as he says, the color of his skin.

 “This white man said, ‘Take him down!’ and the next thing I knew, I was sucker punched from the back,” Watts said.

 For the next four minutes, the group of juveniles punched and kicked Watts, until he nearly passed out. Two customers at the nearby gas station stepped in to help.

 “All I could hear before I passed out, ‘Don’t kill him, or we all go to jail,'” Watts recalled. “If (the customers) had not gotten involved, he would have killed me.”

 Watts is calling the weekend attack that occurred a block away from his Mason Street home a hate crime. During the attack, Watts says he brought up Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen killed by a block watch member Feb. 26.

 “Why me? Remember Trayvon! Remember Trayvon!,” Watts recalled. “I meant it as a peaceful way. What happened to Trayvon, I was not responsible for, I live 1,000 miles away! But they kept saying, ‘Kill him! Kill Him! Kill him!’ because I’m a white man.”

 Where are the calls for hate crimes investigations?  Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Oh wait, they only come if the allegations fit their narrative.

 Where is the Congressional Black Caucus on this one?  Here is a crime that was clearly racially motivated.  Where are their condemnations?

 Perhaps the most stunning part of this is that detectives do not consider this to be a hate crime.

 Let’s see.  You have attackers of various ethnicities who make a racial comments that seem to explain their attack and this is not a hate crime.

 Does anyone wonder if the victim had been black and racial slurs used, whether the authorities would even hesitate calling this a hate crime.

 This is positively Orwellean.  All are equal.  Some are just more equal than others.

Playing the Race Card Again – Jonah Goldberg – Townhall Conservative Columnists

Playing the Race Card Again – Jonah Goldberg – Townhall Conservative Columnists.

White Hispanic.” That’s how the New York Times, Reuters and other media outlets have opted to describe George Zimmerman, a man who would simply be Hispanic if he hadn’t shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The term, rarely if ever used before this tragedy, is necessary in telling the Martin story in a more comfortable way.

What’s the comfortable way? It’s the way the blame for Martin’s death belongs squarely at the feet of “the system.” And “the system” is a white thing, don’t you know.

For instance, in a remarkably uncritical interview with the Los Angeles Times, the Rev. Jesse Jackson explained that with the election of President Obama, “there was this feeling that we were kind of beyond racism.” He continued: “That’s not true. His victory has triggered tremendous backlash.” Indeed, “Blacks are under attack.”

Jackson apparently includes in this racist Obama “backlash” record home foreclosures for African Americans and black unemployment. It would have been nice if the L.A. Times had asked Jackson to work a little harder to connect those dots.

Jackson also laments that “targeting, arresting, convicting blacks and ultimately killing us is big business” in America.

On the saner end of the liberal spectrum, Reniqua Allen of the New America Foundation writes in the Washington Post that it’s harder to talk about race now that we have a black president (note: not a “white African American president,” a la the new Zimmerman standard, although both men have a white parent).

Allen is surely right that having a black president makes it hard to talk about race, particularly if you want to have the hackneyed monologue that hustlers such as Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton want to have. Weak-tea Marxist rants about a system that parasitically feeds off black men sound absurdly antiquated when that system is run, at the top, by black men (Eric Holder, let’s not forget, runs the Justice Department).

But the aging race industry that continues to see the world through a half-century-old prism of Jim Crow, and still wants you to see it that way, too, is determined to bum-rush Zimmerman into his assigned role, heedless of facts or the lack of them.

Meanwhile, Obama, who promised a new conversation on race, seems happier in an election year to lend heft to the old one. He called for soul-searching — but absent a full set of facts, why does this homicide of all U.S. homicides require it? Obama’s comments mostly seem aimed at adding credence to liberal conventional wisdom.

Zimmerman may well deserve to go to jail. Or this may just be a confluence of horrible mistakes with no criminal intent whatsoever. That’s what a Justice Department probe and a Florida grand jury will determine. But for the forces demanding action, that isn’t good enough. Jackson, as is his wont, threatens there will be “no peace” until Zimmerman is arrested.

Others are not so patient. The New Black Panther Party has put a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman’s head. “He should be fearful for his life,” leader Mikhail Muhammad said. “You can’t keep killing black children.” Spike Lee joined the digital lynch mob and tweeted Zimmerman’s home address.

Yes, absolutely, there are pockets of racism in America. But among the myriad problems with a “blame the system” narrative is that it obscures and often silences far greater problems than white-on-black racist violence.

Martin’s tragic death is a statistical outlier. More whites are killed by blacks than blacks killed by whites (or “white Hispanics”). And far, far more blacks are killed by other blacks. Indeed, if we’re going to use the prism of race to analyze murder rates, then the real epidemic is that of black murderers. Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute notes that recent data show black males age 14 to 24 commit homicides at a rate nearly 10 times higher than that of young white and Latino males combined. Surely that’s worthy of some soul-searching, too.

And yet, New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow says “the burden of black boys in America” is fear of racist assaults. MSNBC has handed over vast swaths of airtime to its in-house huckster, Sharpton.

No doubt, white — and “white Hispanic” — prejudice is a problem for young black men, but the notion that it is the singular or chief “burden of black boys in America” is nonsense. Alas, the very people begging for an honest conversation on race will likely accuse you of racism for saying so.

Violent Death in America is an Equal Opportunity Crime – Tea Party Nation

Violent Death in America is an Equal Opportunity Crime – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

I have had an interest in demography, the study of populations and trends within populations, for a long time. Racial animosities in America have been a factor from the moment white colonists stepped off the boat and were greeted by Native Americans and, not that long after, when the first blacks arrived from Africa where slavery had flourished for centuries.

I lived in the South when Jim Crow laws were on the books and public facilities were segregated. I was a young reporter during the Civil Rights era of the 1960s and even met Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on one occasion. I have seen the best and worst of what race represents in America.

I would count the initial reporting on the killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, as among the worst media coverage in a while because, as the facts begin to emerge after a month, it turns out that there was an eye witness to the incident in which George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, suffered a broken nose and injuries to the back of his head consistent with an attack.

The Black Panther Party issued a reward for Zimmerman’s “capture.” In the meantime, Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson, have been out doing what they always do, stirring up black anger and blaming all whites for what occurred.

Let’s look at the demographic facts. In 2007 the Associated Press reported that “Nearly half of the nation’s murder victims were black and the number of black men who were slain is on the rise.” The other half were murdered white victims.

Murder in America is an equal opportunity crime.

The article went on to note that black people represented an estimated 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2005, the latest data then available, but were the victims of 49 percent of all murders and 15 percent of rapes, assaults and other nonfatal violent crimes nationwide.”

The U.S. Justice Department study found that “Most of the black murder victims—93 percent—were killed by other black people.”

The study also found that 85 percent of white victims were slain by other white people. Of the black victims, 51 percent were in their late teens and twenties.

More recent statistics from 2009, posted on the website of the U.S. Department of Justice show pretty much the same trend. That year, 2,604 blacks were killed by blacks, along with 454 whites, but whites managed to kill each other to the tune of 2,963 victims, while killing 209 black victims.

Nationally by 2010, homicide was the leading cause of death for black young men ages 10-24 and the second leading cause of death for black women ages 15-24.

Overall, between 1974 and 2004, 52 percent of murderers were black, 48 percent were white, while 51 percent of the victims were white and 47 percent were black. If one can spin these statistics to suggest that the killing of Trayvon Martin was racial, be my guest.

Appearing on the Sean Hannity program Monday evening, Zimmerman’s friend, Joe Oliver, calmly defended him saying “he is not a racist.” Oliver is black.

Why Barack Obama felt it necessary to insert himself into the situation before the facts are established was a reminder of an earlier situation in 2009 when he took issue with an incident between Cambridge, Massachusetts police and a black professor who was hauled off to jail for failing to cooperate with them. Always assuming the police are to blame or inferring that Trayvon Martin was killed because he could have looked like Obama’s son, if he had one, is a serious breach of judgment. To say it out loud is even worse.

Finally, lost in all the hasty assumptions and accusations is the fact that Zimmerman was, as previously noted, a neighborhood watch volunteer and this suggests the Sanford, Florida neighborhood had crime problems. Trayvon, we’re learning, had some earlier experiences with the local police, so he was on that evening a subject of concern to Zimmerman who reported his presence to the police and was returning to his car when the shooting occurred.

No one takes any pleasure in the death of Trayvon Martin or any other young black man. It is a tragedy, but it is also one that is repeated far too many times in too many American cities for reasons that cannot be passed off as racism. His death reflects the pathologies that plague too many of America’s black population.

We should be celebrating the black men and women that escape their cultural bondage, embrace middle class values, and ennoble their lives through their personal achievements.

Exploiting his death is a disservice to both America’s black and white population.

Geraldo’s Point – Thomas Sowell – Townhall Conservative Columnists

Geraldo’s Point – Thomas Sowell – Townhall Conservative Columnists.

It is not often that I agree with Geraldo Rivera, but recently he said something very practical and potentially life-saving, when he urged black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.

There is no point in dressing like a hoodlum when you are not a hoodlum, even though that has become a fashion for some minority youths, including the teenager who was shot and killed in a confrontation in Florida. I don’t know the whole story of that tragedy, any more than those who are making loud noises in the media do, but that is something that we have trials for.

People have a right to dress any way they want to, but exercising that right is something that requires common sense, and common sense is something that parents should have, even if their children don’t always have it.

Many years ago, when I was a student at Harvard, there was a warning to all the students to avoid a nearby tough Irish neighborhood, where Harvard students had been attacked. It so happened that there was a black neighborhood on the other side of the Irish neighborhood that I had to pass through when I went to get my hair cut.

I never went through that Irish neighborhood dressed in the style of most Harvard students back then. I walked through that Irish neighborhood dressed like a black working man would be dressed — and I never had the slightest trouble the whole three years that I was at Harvard.

While I had a right to walk through that tough neighborhood dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit, if I wanted to — and if I could have afforded one, which I couldn’t — it made no sense for me to court needless dangers.

The man who shot the black teenager in Florida may be as guilty as sin, for all I know — or he may be innocent, for all I know. We pay taxes so that there can be judges and jurors who sort out the facts. We do not need Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or the President of the United States spouting off before the trial has even begun. Have we forgotten the media’s rush to judgment in the Duke University “rape” case that blew up completely when the facts came out?

If the facts show that a teenager who was no threat to anyone was shot and killed, it will be time to call for the death penalty. But if the facts show that the shooter was innocent, then it will be time to call for people in the media and in politics to keep their big mouths shut until they know what they are talking about.

Playing with racial polarization is playing with fire.

Much has been made of the fact that the teenager was unarmed. The only time I have ever pointed a loaded gun at a human being, I had no idea whether he was armed or not. All I knew was that I could hear his footsteps sneaking up behind me at night.

Fortunately for both of us, he froze in his tracks when I pointed a gun at him. If he had made a false move, I would have shot him. And if it had turned out later that he was unarmed, I would not have lost a moment’s sleep over it.

You know that someone was unarmed only after it is all over. If he attacks, you have to shoot, if only to keep the attacker from getting your gun.

It so happened that the man I pointed a gun at was white. But he could have been any color of the rainbow, and it would not have made the slightest difference.

Let the specific facts come out in the Florida case. That is why we have courts.

Have we forgotten the Jim Crow era, with courts making decisions based on the race of the defendants, rather than the facts of the case? That is part of the past that we need to leave in the past, not resurrect it under new racial management.

Who is really showing concern for the well-being of minority youngsters, Geraldo Rivera who is trying to save some lives, or Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others who are hyping this tragic episode for their own benefit?

Race hustlers who hype paranoia and belligerence are doing no favor to minority youngsters. There is no way to know how many of these youngsters’ confrontations with the police or others in authority have been needlessly aggravated by the steady drumbeat of racial hype they have been bombarded with by race hustlers.

American Justice – Tea Party Nation

American Justice – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen the American justice system play out.  There is one particular case that has grabbed the headlines with one militant group demanding that we forget all notions of due process and simply find someone guilty and have “justice” imposed.

 There is one thing they have forgotten.  What is it and what is the case?

 The case is the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.

 Zimmerman is the Florida man who as a part of his neighborhood watch followed Trayvon Martin one night.   The resulting confrontation left Martin dead and Zimmerman in hiding, fearing for his life.

 The race hucksters have come out of the woodwork.  Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have both been exploiting the case.  The militant and racist New Black Panther Party, the 21st Century equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan has put a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman, wanted dead or alive.

 There is only one problem with the mob that has been demanding Zimmerman’s head. 

 Zimmerman may well have acted in self-defense.

 According to the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman lost sight of Martin while following him then as returning to his vehicle, encountered Martin again.   According to Zimmerman, Martin asked him “Do you have a problem?” then added, “You do now.”  According to Zimmerman, Martin then punched him, breaking his nose and then began pounding his head into the pavement.

 The police arrived on the scene within two minutes of the shooting.  Zimmerman had a bloody nose, lacerations on the back of his head and grass stains on the back of his clothes.  In other words, the physical evidence supports Zimmerman’s claim he was attacked.

 An eyewitness supports Zimmerman, saying he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman, pounding him.

 American law is quite clear.  You are allowed to use force to defend yourself when someone uses force against you.  You can use deadly force against someone if you reasonably believe your attacker is using deadly force against you.  Deadly force is force that will cause serious bodily injury or death.

 If someone is smashing your head into a concrete sidewalk, that is deadly force. 

 The left wants to put the “Stand your ground” law on trial.  The stand your ground law says that you do not have to retreat before using deadly force if you are in a position where your life is in danger.  Leftists hate the stand your ground law and love any circumstance where they can make citizens vulnerable.  Leftists everywhere want us to be defenseless.   

 Of course, the “Stand your ground” law does not apply here because Zimmerman was on his back.  He could not retreat from Martin even if he wanted to. 

 The mob is demanding to know why Zimmerman was not arrested that night.  It is simple.  In order to arrest someone there must be probable cause to believe a crime was committed.  

 In this case, as the evidence is slowly leaking out, it is looking more and more like this is a true case of self-defense. 

 The American justice system works pretty well.  There is a reason why it works and why it does not follow the whims of the mob.  A grand jury will hear this evidence and if the evidence is what is now coming out in the media, the grand jury will probably say this was self-defense.

 Unfortunately, those who are interested in exploiting this case for their own political advantage have whipped up the emotions of the mob to the point where justice may be impossible.

NUGENT: Diversity perversity – Washington Times

NUGENT: Diversity perversity – Washington Times.

Behind multicultural push is effort to degrade American culture

By Ted NugentThe Washington Times

Diversity is America’s greatest strength, according to the left and its socialist, Marxist, commie cohorts and co-conspirators running rampant across the country.

If you listen carefully to these America-hating, social-engineering liberals, virtually all behavior, conduct, morals and beliefs make America stronger.

This, of course, is toxic, brain-dead logic that leaves ordinary Americans shaking and scratching their heads in confusion and disgust. We recognize bull dung when we hear, see and smell it, and we have no desire whatsoever to embrace it.

The left’s definition of diversity does not make America stronger. It is weakening and destroying America. Let’s be bold and honest: The left’s version of diversity is repugnant.

Hey, I’m your biggest supporter if you want to swan-dive naked into a pool of goat urine. What I will never support is trying to make it mandatory for everyone to do it.

Those Americans who stand up to the left’s diversity mantra are pilloried and labeled as pernicious, vile, intolerant, racist, backward Bubbas.

The left is forcing its version of diversity throughout our society and culture. According to the left and its acolytes, we are supposed to respect people who refuse to respect Old Glory or learn English, look for a job or put forth the effort to do an honest day’s work. We are supposed to respect all cultures, values, laws and religions – even when they have proved throughout history to be dangerous and diametrically opposed to our American way of life, customs, laws and traditions.

It will be a cold day in hell before I embrace voodoolike religions and unclean stone-age cultures that retard progress instead of advancing it.

The real issue is that by forcing diversity and multicultural nonsense in our workplaces, schools and government agencies on people who still cherish common sense and traditional American values, we’re ripping the nation apart.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. reverts to covering up his ineptitude by trying to disguise it with the race card, the ultimate act of racism. Mr. Holder doesn’t have the dignity or respect for his position to resign. He’s a national embarrassment.

I respect diverse people who respect and cherish basic American customs, traditions, goodwill and values. I have no respect for left-wingers who employ intimidation to make multiculturalism or diversity mandatory as the law of the land.

The diversity punks believe in racial set-asides and preferences. You won’t ever solve discrimination by engaging in reverse discrimination. Maybe a racist like Jesse Jackson or Mr. Holder believes in reverse discrimination, but ordinary Americans do not. We are much too focused and intelligent to buy into such Jabberwocky.

Real diversity, real change, real progress is accomplished by promoting and embracing Western culture, values and traditions, which is what made America great and created the greatest quality of life ever. Weakening this proven methodology under the artful guise of diversity, multiculturalism and political correctness is every bit as insidious a threat to America as are voodoo-inspired terrorist punks.

Diversity is an intentional left-wing disaster and destructive platform. The result of the left’s efforts to force this cultural rot on America is that there is more cultural rot, more social and racial division and less economic activity.

The politically correct punks who are trying to force their brain-dead ideology on America are intolerant and destructive. When you hear someone promoting diversity, consider that person an anti-American stooge. Such punks have a sinister agenda that is anti-American, anti-free-market and anti-freedom.

The left’s version of diversity is social, cultural, economic and ethnic rot. Believe it.

Ted Nugent is an American rock ‘n’ roll, sporting and political activist icon. He is the author of “Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto” and “God, Guns & Rock ‘N’ Roll” (Regnery Publishing).

More civility from the left – Tea Party Nation

More civility from the left – Tea Party Nation.

Congressman Frederica Wilson is a nut.  She is a liberal congressman from south Florida.  Last night she held a town hall meeting about jobs but instead turned it into political forum where she announced, “the real enemy is the Tea Party.”

 Wait, what about that new tone of civility?  Apparently, that only applies to conservatives.

 Also present to throw in their two cents was the Congressman from hell, Maxine Waters and the head of the racial shakedown racket, Jesse Jackson

 Perhaps it is time for a reality check.

 The real reason we have the highest unemployment since the Great Depression is because of policies Congressmen Wilson and Waters supported. 

 There is a term for clowns like them.  Failures.  The expression epic fail was invented specifically for people like them.

 Maxine Waters rants and raves about the Tea Party, but perhaps she should be more concerned with her own ethical lapses.  Waters is facing a trial in the House on charges she tried to aid a troubled bank where her husband owned stock. 

 Oops.

 For those of us in the Tea Party Movement, I think it is time for the gloves to come off.  These clowns like Wilson and Waters want to say stupid things, then I say we answer them. 

 Every time Maxine Waters opens her mouth, we should remind everyone that she has been voted one of the most corrupt members of Congress, not once but twice by the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.  She even got Congress to fund the “Maxine Waters Employment Preparation Center.”  Not only is she corrupt, she has an ego about the size of California. 

 Waters has been accused of improper conduct, if not corruption in regard to her husband and family.  According to the LA Times, from 1996 to 2004 Waters’ relatives made more than a million dollars by doing business with companies, candidates and causes that Waters had helped.  In addition, she arranged meetings with officials of the Treasury Department so the bank, where her husband was a shareholder and a director, could get Federal Bailout money.    The bank received $12 million under the TARP program.

 One thing the left understands is being pushed back.  They are like 5th grade bullies, only with less class and less intelligence. 

 Someone needs to tell Frederica Wilson’s constituents the real reason they are unemployed is the policies she supports and the policies of the Party of Economic Self Destruction.

 Someone needs to remind those people, “the real enemy is Frederica Wilson, Maxine Waters and all of their liberal friends.”

 Here is the video.
