  • Me & Thornberry Annoy an Australian Leftist on Ferguson

    11/28/2014 2:49:28 AM PST · by Cincinatus' Wife · 4 replies
    Larry Thornberry and I have both annoyed an Australian leftist academic with our respective commentary on the events in Ferguson. Binoy Kampmark, who teaches at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, wrote a piece "analyzing" conservative commentary in the wake of the grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson. Kampmark has been associated with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and unsuccessfully ran for the Australian Senate under the Wikileaks Party banner. In addition to taking Larry and I to task, Kampmark also criticizes NRO's Rich Lowry and Ian Tuttle. Here is what Kampmark writes about Thornberry and me: [must read...

    Following the grand jury’s decision to not indict Darren Wilson, a white police officer in Ferguson, MO who shot and killed an unarmed Black teen named Michael Brown, racial tensions are running high which has prompted a number of African-Americans to call for a financial boycott of the historical “Black Friday” sales which are highly profitable for retailers during the holiday season. Joining the call for a boycott is Grammy award winning singer Toni Braxton. The sultry singer took to her Facebook page on Tuesday to post a meme with an image of slaves that reads: “DID YOU KNOW: Black...

Anyone unfortunate enough to get within listening distance heard some pretty brutal words -- the kind of words which, if published, might have gotten me into trouble. The following may seem intemperate. Those around me have heard worse. While downtown Baltimore yesterday, I talked to an older black guy who derided the rioters in Ferguson. He recalled the riots of April 1968, which destroyed a sector of this city which has never been properly rebuilt....

    Thank you, Ferguson: Thanks to you we learned that black mob violence is now a sickness -- not just a problem. And no one is sicker than the reporters who ignore, condone, excuse, and even encourage it, as we learned from the latest riot. For reporters, Mike Brown has always been a moving target: At first the Gentle Giant was cut down for no reason whatsoever. Reporters ate it up and black mob violence followed. When that fairy tale evaporated, they replaced it -- with ease. The day after the riot ,on "Morning Joe", I learned from a black reporter...

    Yesterday President Obama lent his support to the spirit behind the rioters in Ferguson. He declared their frustration is rooted in “hard truths.” Obama actually called the rioters criminals before saying they should work with him. It’s nice to see the President’s narcissism never takes a break. Perhaps the highlight of his comments from yesterday is when he declared that he wouldn’t comment on a local situation such as Ferguson because it isn’t the job of the President to comment on ongoing investigation of specific cases. Maybe the President has finally learned his lesson after ‘the cop acted stupidly’ and...

Because at one point he says Mike Brown took a step forward. Another time he says, he took a hop, as he was about to run and then he began running. So running is inconsistent with one step forward. So which is it, Mr. Wilson? I mean, you really have to get to the bottom of it. You can't let an ambiguous word like 'charged' get...

It wasn’t just an AutoZone and Jade Nails burning up in the fires of Ferguson, it was also the “Hope” of 2008 going up in smoke. Instead of hope, the age of Obama has been characterized by racial division and discord. Obama and Holder commanded the police to behave themselves. The police behaved, and look what happened. Last week, members of the New Black Panther Party were arrested by state officials for plotting to use pipe bombs against the St. Louis Gateway Arch and for...

An American political commentator who is also a trained paralegal says white police officer Darren Wilson, who was not indicted for killing an African American teenager in Ferguson, had “issues with people of color”, but he hid them under the legal loophole of “reasonable fear”.

    The South Orange-Maplewood School District in New Jersey was told by the US Department of Education that the racial imbalance in its Advance Placement (AP) courses was discriminatory because minorities are under represented among the students enrolled in these classes. AP courses are intended for college-bound graduates and typically entail heavier workloads and more difficult assignments. US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan brushed aside arguments relying on student interest and ability as “insufficient to overcome the goal of racial equality. For the school to say that minorities are over represented on the school’s athletic teams and that somehow counterbalances their...

    Police Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury for the murder of Michael Brown. Based on the evidence it is clear that Wilson shot Brown in self defense. Brown had already robbed a convenience store, he had already attacked Wilson once trying to steal his gun. The evidence indicates that Brown charged at Wilson and Wilson shot him dead. There is no indictment because Wilson was completely justified in using force. That doesn’t matter to the progressive community organizers in Ferguson who are currently inciting the mob to burn the city to the ground. President Obama hasn’t...

    President Barack Obama’s unwillingness to wade deeply into the thicket of passions, grievances, suspicions, and resentments that materialized after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, has disappointed some of his strongest supporters. His decision has been interpreted as a strategic retrenchment—a conscious determination not to polarize the public’s impressions of Ferguson the way he did when he expressed a kind of racial solidarity with the parents of Trayvon Martin two and a half years ago. The contrast between Obama’s approaches to the Brown and Martin cases has always been overstated. Bracket one poignant but contentious sentence—“If I had a...

A grand jury verdict that is likely to exonerate officer Darren Wilson is assumed to require significant law enforcement because in August we witnessed the initial weeks of rioting, looting and arson in what has been described by police authorities as an organized effort.

    A Grand Jury is expected to not charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson with the crime of murdering Michael Brown. It’s pretty clear at this point that there is no basis with which to charge Wilson with murder. Brown was not the innocent “gentle giant” that the media and leftist activists initially portrayed him as. In reality, he was a thug who had roughed up an old man he was stealing cigars from. After roughing up an old man, he punched Wilson breaking his orbital bone. He was told to put his hands up and instead charged Wilson who then...

    The South Orange-Maplewood School District in New Jersey will be likely lowering their standards for AP classes after a successful lawsuit brought by the Department of Education.

Proponents of tracking believe that it helps all students; not only will educators teach students at their level, but it will prevent large classes in which students of different needs are taught all at once. The DoE and opponents of tracking believe it promotes "segregation," by favoring white students and...

Now, some 19 articles later — and still feeling grimy and contaminated from multiple visits to obscure sites like Salon deep in the bowels of the Internet — it’s time to celebrate. It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the greatest hits of all the things someone, somewhere has deemed racist. A is for academic freedom, which...

    Racism in America has often been reduced to white-against-black discrimination, and understandably so. After all, it was white colonists who forcibly removed Africans from their homeland and brought them to America to serve as slaves on plantations.

    A Dallas-area school board fired a teacher Friday who posted racially charged tweets about the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. Duncanville Independent School District trustees unanimously voted to terminate Vinita Hegwood's contract. Hegwood, who is black, has apologized for comments made Nov. 7 on her Twitter account that were laced with expletives and derogatory references to whites and blacks. Administrators have called the remarks "reprehensible." [Snip] The school board rejected a resignation and instead fired her with cause. That doesn't affect a teacher's pension, but it makes him or her ineligible...

    The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ) hosted a discussion on “The Black Male Image through the Media” at its general body Chapter Meeting on Tuesday. The discussion was moderated by PABJ President Johann Calhoun and featured four culture, social, media and education leaders who offered their perspectives and suggested solutions. “Black men are special. We are the only group of individuals in America that, when we leave our house in the morning, we have no idea what’s going to happen,” said Father’s Day Rally Committee (FDRC) President Bilal Qayyum, one of the discussion’s panelists. “We don’t know whether we...

    Full title: EXCLUSIVE: In Scathing Letter to Obama, Former FBI Assistant Director Slams Holder as "Chief Among Antagonists" in Ferguson As the Senate prepares to hold confirmation hearings for new Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch and as outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder continues to allocate Department of Justice resources to the situation in Ferguson, former FBI Assistant Director and Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund President Ron Hosko has sent a scathing letter to President Obama detailing the damage done to the relationship between law enforcement and DOJ over the past six years.

    Thug As Richard Sherman pointed out after receiving criticism about his post Super Bowl interview, “It seems like [thug] is the acceptable way of calling someone the n word nowadays. Substituting the word thug doesn’t disguise the negative association with Black people.” Urban/Inner City The Black community is often referred to as urban or inner city when people are uncomfortable talking about Black people or where they live. State’s Rights During the Civil Rights Movement, politicians used racially coded appeals and words such as “state’s rights” to try and capitalize on the racial anxiety during that time.

    The nomination of Loretta Lynch to succeed Eric Holder as Attorney General is a deft political decision by President Obama. Lynch’s nomination satisfies the racial interest groups yet doesn’t carry the toxic record that other possible nominees carried. Al Sharpton promised he would play a role in selecting Holder’s successor, and it appears he did. Lynch promises to be Eric Holder’s sequel, particularly when it comes to federal enforcement of civil rights laws. What she provides the White House is a clean slate. She provides the false promise of luring some Republicans into thinking the Justice Department may improve once...
