Wrong, Kathleen Kane…

Philly DA Blows the Whistle on Pennsylvania’s State AG

BTW, KK is white, Williams black…

In a sting operation, all had been caught accepting cash or Tiffany jewelry in exchange for votes or favors. Kane, who is white, has defended herself, saying that the investigation was badly managed and tainted by racism. She claims the criticism comes from what she calls the “Good Ol’ Boys Club.” Williams, who is African American, has shot back: “I have seen racism. I know what it looks like. This isn’t it.”

In response, Williams issued an angry statement and penned an op-ed in Sunday’s Inquirer. “The notion that they would target anyone based on race is ridiculous,” Williams said in a statement. “I am confident they are not racist, and it is regrettable that the attorney general would casually throw around such an explosive accusation.” Thomas, who is also African American, now works for Williams and denies he ever made such a statement.

It’s racist when it doesn’t fit the Dem’s narrative.

The UK’s Growing Disregard for Religious Liberty

Commentary

Writing at the Telegraph Christina Odone aptly titles her piece on the subject; I don’t want to live in a Britain that prizes its cows more than its Jews. But for sometime now Britain has prized a great many things over and above its religious groups. In the rights agenda that now plagues most western democracies, minorities are continuously competing to have their demands met under the banner of human rights. Yet, increasingly religious minorities are losing out in this struggle.

In recent years there have been no shortage of lawsuits where religious individuals have been stripped of their freedoms in the name of advancing human rights. Perhaps just a couple of examples will suffice here. While in 2002 Britain changed the law to allow same-sex couples to adopt, in 2011 the High Court sided with social workers who were preventing certain Christian couples from being allowed to foster if they refused to endorse homosexuality as a lifestyle to the children they were fostering. When throwing out the case of a specific Pentecostal couple the judges stated, “we live in this country in a democratic and pluralistic society, in a secular state not a theocracy.”

In 2009 it had been the turn of the Jewish community to be subjected to this kind of thinking. That year Britain’s newly formed Supreme Court ruled that Jewish schools were practicing racial discrimination by following their tradition and only admitting children who were Jewish by religious law; be that according to matrilineal descent or Orthodox conversion. But in hyper-politically correct modern Britain, once this was framed as racism, the schools didn’t stand a chance.

Why do liberals have so much hate for black conservatives?

Yes, apparently the first African-American woman to serve as National Security Adviser and the nation’s Secretary of State doesn’t have what it takes to be honored by Rutgers.

Rice holds a Ph.D. in political science. She has taught college for decades. She was Provost of Stanford University. She worked her way up from a working-class family in the segregated South to the highest echelon of world power and politics.

But according to the Rutgers faculty council, all of that is negated by her service in President George W. Bush’s administration.

Liberals are shockingly quick to demean and dismiss brilliant black people like Rice, Carson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Professor Walter E. Williams and economist Thomas Sowell because they don’t fit into the role they have carved out for a black person in America.

Black Americans must be obedient liberals on all things or risk being called a race traitor or an Uncle Tom.

Keepin’ them down…

The supermarket chain planned to build a store on a vacant lot in Northeast Portland, but bowed out after protests from the Portland African American Leadership Forum.

What really irked the Forum? According to a letter sent to Trader Joe’s, the store would “increase the desirability of the neighborhood,” for “non-oppressed populations.”

Well, we certainly wouldn’t want to make the neighborhood more desirable, would we? And we certainly wouldn’t want to provide more jobs in an economically-depressed area – or award the construction contract to a minority-owned business (as Trader Joe’s did). After all, we just heard from the government how our quality of life is vastly improved by not having to work at all.

Leftists and our illustrious First Lady decry the fact that low-income, minority households have limited access to fruits, vegetables and other nutritious foods. But in Oregon at least those households don’t really want what Trader Joe’s is selling – guess those free-trade bananas and coffee are just “too white.”

PAALF has no idea how stupid they sound…

Racism, thy name is DOJ

This time, against whites…

Experts slam DOJ letter telling schools to implement race-based punishments

Education experts decried a new memo from the Departments of Justice and Education that instructs public schools throughout the country to cease punishing disruptive students if they fall into certain racial categories, such as black or Hispanic.

The letter, released on Wednesday, states that it is a violation of federal law for schools to punish certain races more than others, even if those punishments stem from completely neutral rules. For example, equal numbers of black students and white students should be punished for tardiness, even if black students are more often tardy than white students.

“It’s ridiculous to assign quotas for discipline based on race,” Joy Pullmann, managing editor of School Reform News said. “If we did that, for one thing, we’d have to believe that Asian students are severely under-disciplined.”

Way to go, DOJ

What? Did they wait until a white guy plays and arrests him for a hate crime but gives others of color who played a free pass?

There is no question that the assault attributed to Barrett was heinous and likely motivated by racial animus, but the Washington Times addresses the other issue that is undoubtedly on the minds of many Americans. “The ‘game’ has spawned a fierce debate since many of the reported victims have been white and their assailants have been black, but hate crimes charges have been all but non-existent,” the Post states.

Although there have been several incidents in which it would seem apparent that racial hate was a motivating factor—especially when one considers that other nicknames used to the describe the knockout game are “polar bearing” or “Get the Jew”—an extensive Internet search by this writer failed to turn up a single other incident where the U.S. Department of Justice pursued hate crime charges against anyone allegedly involved in the knockout game.

Not that it would have been impossible to do so. As New York City Police have noted, there have been eight knockout game attacks in Brooklyn, some of which are being investigated as hate crimes by city authorities. All of the suspects are black teens. Twenty-eight-year-old Amrit Marajh was actually charged with harassment as a hate crime by New York authorities for punching a 24-year-old Orthodox Jew.

That’s Racist, Barry…

Black president admits profiling immigrants by their appearance

So, Barack Hussein Obama can tell where Americans are from just by looking at their faces. Imagine if he also knew their funny foreign names or detected defective English.

How would Obama react if someone determined his birthplace by looking at that face of his? And what evil or good dreams lurk within that obviously wily Chicagoan’s mind.

You didn’t see much about this Obama statement in the mainstream media last week. With the ObamaCare disaster all cleaned up, its website humming perfectly and the U.S. economy now roaring strongly, Obama lit out for Seattle, San Francisco and LA to round up more campaign money.

He’s fighting the tide of history in second midterms to put Nancy Pelosi back on the House throne in next year’s elections and keep Happy Harry Reid’s aging South Side in charge of the Senate.

On this latest West Coast fundraising jaunt, the Democrat also paid back one of his biggest campaign bundlers and party donors, Jeffrey Katzenberg. In LA,, Obama helicoptered to the’ Glendale facility of DreamWorks Animation to “discuss” the economy with real Americans.

This way, you see, Obama got an official presidential function on the trip schedule, which reduces his political party’s share of the tab for flying him cross-country twice in Air Force One at $182,000 an hour in taxpayer funds.

Obama was effusive with Katzenberg and the liberal movie-making crowd, one of his most reliable sources of money and political support over these increasingly-troubled 59 months in office and the two previous years of primary campaigning.

Obama better be effusive with these rich folks, shoring up his base there because elsewhere across the country approval for the man and his job performance has plummeted from the +60% range at the start of his reign to the 30′s now with 37 months to go.

Obama has established the NEW normal

TheBlackSphere

These economists want “normalization,” because the opposite of normalization is chaos. And under Obama, America is in economic (and other) chaos.

The concern of these economists is not the impact of Obama’s policies today, but the possible impact America will experience for DECADES! You can’t shift an economy this large on a dime for the better. But as Obama has proven, you can shift it quickly for the worse.

Leftists won’t admit it, but Obama has undoubtedly engendered the worst economic period in American history, wounds hidden only by clever government marketing (lying about the data), and Obama’s ability to print money.

Why They Malign Orson Scott Card

The message is clear. If you oppose same-sex marriage you deserve to be name-called, blacklisted, stained and maligned. Your views will be distorted. You are free game for tomato-throwing. You will be described as hateful. You will be throttled and assaulted even by those who admire your work. Opposing same-sex marriage is an indelible stain on your character. Your career will be stymied or you may be fired from your job. Once you have expressed opposition to same-sex marriage, you are forever vulnerable from assault by those who, in theory, give lip service to tolerance.

What is particularly disturbing is since many who oppose same-sex marriage do it based on their religious views, this becomes another assault specifically on biblically-based religion. It is a direct blow against publicly expressing a point of view that is motivated by religious conscience.

It is not just that if you oppose same-sex marriage, you have marked yourself as worthy of abuse. If you merely associate with a religion that opposes same-sex marriage, you may be equally in trouble. This is a lethal and effective way of quarantining the free speech of the religious.

Obamacare seeks to segregate patients, doctors by race

DailyCaller

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under Obamacare — if you both belong to the same race.

Obamacare’s spectacular flop of a rollout distracts from its crude calculus that encourages the allocation of healthcare resources along racial lines and a doctor-patient system splintered into ethnicities.

While the 2010 Patient Protecion and Affordable Care Act’s language on diversity sounds innocuous, a review of the frankly separatist thinking of the law’s ardent supporters indicates Obamacare is aiming for a health care system that puts political correctness above the struggle against illness and death.

A 2009 report by the Center for American Progress (CAP) examining the House and Senate bill eventually signed by President Barack Obama advocates pairing patients and doctors of the same race, a goal toward which the law channels taxpayer dollars.

“Research suggests that health care providers’ diagnostic and treatment decisions, as well as their feelings about patients, are influenced by patients’ race or ethnicity,” the CAP report reads. “Several studies have shown that racial concordance is substantially and positively related to patient satisfaction.”
