  • The Top Four Liberal Reactions to Ferguson Grand Jury

    11/25/2014 2:09:51 AM PST · by servo1969 · 31 replies ^ | 11-25-2914 | Michael Schaus
    The self-righteous indignation of liberals was on full display last night, as the Grand Jury announced their decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the death of Michael Brown. Strangely absent was a sense of concern over the violence, destruction, and social devolution that erupted in St Louis. Instead, as expected, there was a profoundly misplaced anger over the decision of a Grand Jury that was presented with facts, eyewitness accounts, and forensic evidence. 1 – Ezra KleinEzra Klein is an idiot.

    Looters rule the streets while cars and businesses burn. Criminals repudiate with violence our American values, our justice system, and our sense of decency and decorum. Weak, pathetic politicians spur the criminals on with tacit approval, if not outright inflammatory suggestions. President Obama said in one sentence that we are a nation of laws, and then in a second sentence suggested that people were angry, and their reaction was understandable. Hows that, Mr. Obama? If the process was just, then the outcome was just. Why are people understandably angry at a just outcome? Does that understandable anger permit lawlessness? APTOPIX...

    Over the past 20 years, whites and blacks have experienced opposite trends in segregation. Asians, Hispanics and blacks are moving into historically white neighborhoods. Vastly fewer whites live surrounded by just other white people. Whites look around and see multi-ethnic neighbors. They perceive expanded opportunity and integration because that is what they see. And they think everyone else is experiencing the same things. But a Washington Post analysis of Census data shows that the experience in historically African American neighborhoods of major cities has been far different, as they have remained heavily isolated. Whites, Asians and Hispanics are not moving...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton is perhaps best known these days for his MSNBC show. This provides viewers with a daily diet of its host misreading his teleprompter and egregiously overusing the phrase, I mean, what is he talking about? But there is much more to Sharpton than his left-leaning political worldview and unimpressive TV skills. He rose to national prominence in the 1980s when he falsely accused white law enforcement officials of raping a teenage African-American girl. After that, he moved on to incite anti-Semitic violence in Brooklyn and Harlem. This was his preparation for a later bid for the...

    The 2014 midterm election was interesting for several things. First, it was a repudiation of Obama-ism only 2 years after he was re-elected. The dense-pack strategy (having one scandal after another take the previous one off the front pages) of Team Obama didn't work. The independent voters finally saw failure follow failure and realized that the things they were promised were either lies or that Obama was incompetent. Either way, they abandoned him, big time. Keeping in mind that the Black vote was a Republican lock for nearly a century after the Civil War, its very interesting that there is...

    NEW YORK, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- A new study suggests the New York City Police Department's stop and frisk practice may be leading to elevated levels of anxiety among young men in the city, especially young black men. The policy allows police to stop pedestrians and search them for drugs or weapons.

    The principles of conservatism personal empowerment, less government intrusion into private lives, a strong national defense, greater individual freedom & liberty, fiscal responsibility from our elected officials make sense and work for all people, regardless of race or ethnicity.

Our deepest desire is to aid in bringing both sides to a place of mutual understanding and respect. Black America, we have got to change the way we operate. Automatically running to one political...

    ...Barack Obama is increasingly unpopular among Floridians, but that did not stop Charlie Crist from happily campaigning alongside first lady Michelle Obama on Friday to boost his bid to unseat Republican Gov. Rick Scott. "There's a reason why Charlie is known as the people's governor here in Florida," Mrs. Obama told the predominantly black and Hispanic crowd of about 700 people inside a park gymnasium. "It's because Charlie gets it." The nearly 20-minute speech was reminiscent of the playbook for her husband's 2012 re-election campaign, especially its focus on the country's economic gains from when President Obama took office in...

    Despite some pro-Michael Brown witnesses stating that at no point did Brown and officer Darren Wilson struggle in Wilson's police car, new forensics show that Brown's blood was in the car, on Wilson's gun, and on Wilson's person. According to a witness put forward by the NAACP, the witness did not see Michael Brown struggling with the police officer inside his car at any point. They did witness the incident from the time it started from the time of the initial stop by the police car. This is categorically false. The forensics irrefutably show Brown's blood splattered on the car,...

    The campaign of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is reaching out to different demographics, including the urban areas of the state with a radio ad claiming McConnell is not only implementing policies hurtful to the communities but also trying to take away their right to vote. Politico was first to report on the ad, which they say is running in Louisville and likely other areas of the state. In the ad, which can be heard below, a man tells listeners that Grimes is a champion for civil rights while also bashing McConnell for many things Grimes has hit...

    Remember the song Baa Baa Black Sheep? The harmless nursery rhyme was written in the early 1700s and has been sung by children around the world ever since. At least it used to be, now it may be a hate crime. Child care centers in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, are changing the song because of racial and sexist connotations in the lyrics.
