Affirmative action, and ticking time bombs.

It must be nice to belong to a certain group in America.

Let's see now, Bobby Petrino is dismissed from the University of Arkansas for inappropriate conduct with a female student and he just got the head coaching job at Western Kentucky. No scandal for Joker Phillips, Randy Shannon, Turner Gill or Sylvester Croom, and they can't sniff a job.

Larry Mendte, now a convicted felon, is fired from KYW(CBS) television here in Philly after hacking a co-worker's e-mail account and is back on the air in  Philly and in New York. Meanwhile, a Shreveport weather woman is fired from her on air job for responding to a racist on facebook.(Remember what happened to Jennifer Livingston?Her station backed her.) Let's see how long it takes Ms.  Lee to get another job.

Anyway, did you hear about the dude who shot up a busy mall parking lot in California, today? (He is the sweet looking guy in the pic.) Fortunately no one was killed. It might be time to start watching for these copy cat actors out here. Somehow I suspect that there are a lot of ticking time bombs among us just waiting to go off.    

Some people are thrashing David Sirota for his comments today, but.....

"On Sunday morning’s broadcast of “Up w/Chris Hayes,” liberal Salon.com columnist David Sirota suggested that Republicans will resist efforts to closely monitor and track dangerous mentally disturbed individuals, simply because many loners with mental illness are white.
 The way we’ve accustomed ourselves to think about security post-9/11 … is: ‘OK, here’s what we need to do. We need to create a whole new profiling regime to keep track on people with diagnosed mental illness, and essentially follow them around like suspected terrorists to make sure they don’t do anything like this,’” Hayes said.

“And that is a really chilling thought, and also it doesn’t seem like a particularly productive policy, but I can see that being a very appealing policy,” he added.
But Sirota said that kind of profiling system would be politically untenable.
“The issue with it will be politically, I think, the profile is white men,” Sirota said. “The profile, that’s a profile that’s not essentially in America, allowed to be profiled. That’s the one profile in America that’s not allowed to be profiled. If this was any other kind of demographic, you would be hearing that I think, in a different way — a much uglier way.”

The columnist reminded viewers that Republicans trashed a 2009 Department of Homeland Security report that warned law enforcement officials about dangerous right-wing extremists.

“Will you see the same reaction from the Republican Party back when there was the … report [that] came out raising flags over right-wing militias and veterans? …” Sirota asked. “The Republicans said, ‘This is the way to demonize essentially white America or good God-fearing Americans.’” [Source]

Sometimes "good God-fearing Americans" are the ones we should fear the most.

Sirota’s racial politics ploy fit in nicely with Chris Hayes’ scoffing at the notion of better monitoring of the mentally ill. The problem is not dangerously mentally ill people who are protected by privacy and other laws, but the evil white man trying to protect his own!

I told you that mental illness would not be addressed seriously, even though mental illness with warning signs of danger is a pattern in these mass murders. I had not anticipated that the race card would be the factor that got in the way.

The Professor is right that the Left does not want to see any serious discussion of how we deal with the mentally ill in America.

For the Leftist Masterminds, Reality is relative. Therefore, your Reality is different from mine or anyone else’s. Therefore, to treat people who deviate from the Reality excepted by the vast majority of people any differently than the said majority is - oh no! - Discrimination -

Loony tunes.

I see what Sirota is driving at, but I think he is away off base. Mental illness,including mental illness that might lead one to violent acts, is hardly the sole province of "white" people. Think of the DC shooters, the Virginia Tech shooter, or the shooter pictured in your post Marcos Gurrola (**maybe** he is a Latino, I don't know). Perhaps there are more "white" people suffering from mental illness that might lead to violent acts, but would not that be only because "whites" are still the majority population in the USA?

While these shootings are undeniably tragic, the number of people killed in such crimes pales in comparison with those killed during domestic violence, or, of course, by people who drink and drive. I would be extremely uncomfortable following some preemptive path whereby people with mental illnesses end up being ostracized or indeed isolated by the state. Or perhaps we can create profiles of sweetheart mistreaters and drunk drivers, too?

I think Republicans are just as likely as Democrats to profile the mentally ill, regardless of race. The reason is because both groups are understandably frightened of random, unpredictable violence such as this. However, our sensation-based media loves to play these relatively rare events up, and rarely reports on the number of people killed during domestic violence disputes or by people who drink and drive. I'm more scared by any attempts by politicians and police actors to routinely profile groups of people, as a "preemptive" way to keep the voting public, at least, "perfectly safe." A. "perfectly safe" society is one that rests on discrimination and massive state violence, as the so-called "war on terror" and many other sorry chapters in our nation's history should teach us.

Field, "Sometimes "good God-fearing Americans" are the ones we should fear the most."

Brother Field, I knew today you would slam God-fearing people in America. Fundamental atheists such as yourself is part of the problem of gun violence in our country.

America is fast becoming a Godless country, which means we are on the path to "hopelessness".

NO FAITH, NO GOD, NO HOPE....

KNOW FAITH, KNOW GOD, KNOW HOPE.

Brother Field, things are only going to get worse with close-minded pessimistic anti-God creators such as yourself.. It's people like you and others who breed "hopelessness".

And it doesn't take a genius to know that humans become desperate when they have no hope....

To profile those who 'might' have a mental issue is to focus on the issue of mental illness. You can't separate out one from the other....they come together.

Dear Mr Field, I have often wondered what Alycia Lane looked like. She must have been a "knock out" to cause KYW's audience to increase by 60+%.

Was she a beauty? I am curious because Mendte was involved with her and as I understand it, there were other men attracted to her. Wow. She must have been something in Philly.

Does the Philly audience miss seeing her?

Exactly, Mrs. X and I were talking about this the other day. White males are so quick to want to profile others when they wreak as much killing and havoc as any group on earth. Like your anon shows, they can't even comprehend that every white American isn't the good guy no matter the action. I'm surprised they haven't started blaming the 20 kids yet.

By your remark, you are prejudiced, probably because Lori Wilson is Black. Everyone in the Delaware Valley knows Alycia Lane was outstanding and probably the most beautiful woman in News....ANYWHERE!

Any co-anchor who can increase local news ratings by 61% is awesome. Admit it. She was beautiful and therefore probably a Republican.

Of course he isn't. When you are an Obama supporter you don't ever fix problems you point fingers and blame the White race for your collective failures. As if the White race were your parents and responsible for every choice you force upon them.

We clearly see that he will never focus on mental illness, that would alienate almost all of those like you and actually address a problem that has been caused by earlier liberal feel-good destructive policies.

But good to see that leftists have suddenly come around to the potential benefits of profiling. A bit surprised after seeing your previous positions on ignoring criminals and terrorists allowing for crime and terror to avoid profiling. Ensuring 80 year old women are groped at airports so the Islamic terrorists don't get offended by being checked for security or not liking stop and frisk when 95% of shootings and crime are conducted by Blacks and despite the clear evidence it almost completely eliminates the same shootings and crime.

Bring on the profiling if you wish, universally. Not just for the anti-white crowd. Bring it on for all- there have been mass murderers of mentally ill whites - profile them. The majority of rapes, murders, shooting and robberies are conducted by Blacks profile them. Most if not all Black elected officials are borderline retarded and corrupt - profile the shit out of them.

When you see a Black with his pants cinched around his thighs saggin, he has got to be an idiot, who else would do something this stupid and they are known to be thugs and criminals - profile em.


I think we all can get some benefit out of your hatefully racist and hypocritically new position on profiling.

Bring it on.

Are Black "yooofs" setting people on fire, playing the knockout game, flash robbing crazy? Certainly by the standards of a White Nation. Or are they part of Black accepted normal culture of violence?

I say crazy, just like that mass murderer - let's profile them and get to the bottom of why they do so many of these horrific things and cannot assimilate into civilization, wherever they may roam.

Or do we ban Blacks from using fire?

LOL as if you would be employed doing anything other than shucking cow-shit if you didn't have Whites feeling pity for your low intellect, lowering standards so you could feel included and then paying for it.


You must really hate West Indians who obviously own you yet you can't hide behind "white privilege with them. They feel no White guilt and need to patronize you. They do quite well and dominate in medical and science fields along with other Asians and obviously are not White, in fact they are only 7 % of the population.

Hmmmmm.....if I were a Black geneticist (HAHA). I wonder what conclusions ( if I had the IQ to apply analytical thinking) I would draw from a minority group leading in academic pursuits, leading in medical and high tech fields in a White nation, when compared to me.

Well putting aside that you can get any type of food you want in America, better hope we still have food at this rate.

"Over the past four years, prosperity has increased around the globe, while it has remained stagnant in the United States, the Legatum Institute reports. As a result, the Institute ranked the United States 12th out of 142 countries on its 2012 Prosperity Index, putting the country outside the top ten for the first time.


In particular, the authors say that the fall in prosperity:

“. . .is driven by a decline in the number of US citizens who believe that hard work will get them ahead.”

Quite a change from traditional American attitudes."

On your sidebar, you call ESPN hosts Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin "Honorary House Negroes of the Day".

Below are the statements they were suspended over:

“How does this work? You lose testicles and gain eligibility?”

“This whole gender-bending thing, you know, whatever you’ve got to do to scratch that inner itch and quell those inner demons, that’s fine, but don’t go playing sports then. And don’t go playing sports saying, ‘but I’ve go the rights of everyone else.’

“Yeah, you’ve got the rights to live as a human being with everybody respecting you, but athletics is different.”


What sort of Orwellian world do we live in where simply raising an eyebrow at the fact a 6 foot six 50 year old male ex-college basketball player is now playing women's college basketball by virtue of a voluntary surgical mutilation costs you your job? I'm sorry man, tolerance is one thing, but if we as a society are forced to accommodate every bit of personal weirdness that comes along, we are fucked up.

Learn your lesson if you are a sports journalist. Stick to safe subjects, like playing the race card, gun control, vilifying the South, belittling Christians. If Czaben and Pollin were smart, as a counterpuch they should claim that Ludwig’s behavior violates Sharia law and they were publicly denouncing his blasphemy to Islam.

So that business about following mentally-ill people around is dumb for a few reasons and no party would support it. First, one in four Americans has some form of mental illness. Second, let me tell you AS a person with mental-illness there is good crazy and bad crazy - just as there is good "normal" and bad "normal". Mentally-ill people who are violent are a minority within that group. Next, there are plenty of mentally-ill people who have not been diagnosed as such. Last, mental illness is one FACTOR in some of these incidents (probably most, considering the nature of the crimes), but it is not the sole cause.

I think what we have here is a case of a couple of emotionally worked up commentators who weren't all that smart in the first place.

This is not to say we shouldn't (of course) stop assault rifles ending up in the hands of potentially violent mentally-ill people . . . or potentially violent normal people . . . or potentially violent people, in general - like everyone.

I think what it says is that it should be a hell of a lot harder and involve a lot more screening and training to buy a gun. That's much more practical and suited to the desired objective of stopping things like this from happening.

"Whites No Longer Majority In U.S. by 2043 Americans can look forward to better food, better music, better sports."

"Americans" in a minority-white America can look forward to less food, debased music, and the collapse of the professional sports industry.

Who will pay for the food? Who would maintain the technology with which they create music? Who will organize and manage professional sports?

Without whites, blacks would starve. They would have no instruments beyond drums to play music on. Sports would consist of hacking each other to death with machetes.

Black run areas are rife with endemic poverty, social chaos, and horrific violence.

Thankfully, the myth of the demise of white America is just that, a myth. Whites will remain the majority in this country for many centuries. You can depend on your EBT card to keep you alive Bozo, for the time being.

Black success is a gift bestowed by white people.

Success, in your case, means you get to live in subsidized housing instead of a cardboard box. You get to hang around Indian doctors and clean their beakers instead of hanging around other crackheads giving handjobs for a dollar.

You will never be a doctor.

If it's true that "guns don't kill people, people do" somebody had better let the U.S. Army know real quick.

Those people have spent tens of billions of dollars on rifles that won't kill people! Why is the military-industrial complex defrauding the American tax payer out of all that money?

The truth should be told, you have a right to know.

Just curious, how come you wound up marrying a nice compliant straight hair Korean sister instead a Queenie La Queefa?

Koreans still value the family unit of a Father who is responsible pays the bills or shares paying the bills and raising the children. Only 1.6 % of all korean births are to mothers out of wedlock.

Interesting. Yet you are glad Whites are rumored to become the minority. Will there be enough Asians for the brothers?

While the term "House Negro" originally meant a black that sucked up to whites and got to work in the house, and "Field Negro" meant the unstrustworthy kind that sulked outside, on this site House Negro means anything field doesn't like, and Field Negro means anything construed as "good".

Thus when a white cop gives a homless black guy some new boots, that's "FNB". When a black man achieves a Senate seat, but for the party field doesn't like, that's "HNB".

Doesn't make any sense I know, but that's how it works around here.

"Finally, congrats to Tim Scott for becoming the first African American Southern senator since Reconstruction. He was appointed and not elected, but we will take progress anywhere we can get it.
Tim, of course, is a tea party wingnut, but not liking his politics doesn't mean that I can't praise the guy for his accomplishments."

Seriously Field?? Have we not learned from the Clarence Thomas debacle. We've been betrayed by black folks who have their own vested interests at heart with no regard for the masses. So West is out and his partner in crime is in now. This doesn't call for congrats at all despite his "accomplishments". He's the first since Reconstruction because of his ideology and it doesn't hurt to have a black front but the intent is still the same. I don't want to go backwards and folks like this man is willing to do so.

I rarely disagree with you but frankly this is perplexing.

As Thurgood Marshall stated when he was told of the Clarence Thomas appointment. "It is not the color of a snake that is important. It is whether or not it bites!" He viewed Clarence Thomas views as such.

Um, what Senate Bill did Obama sign on December 31, 2011? The one that put us under MARTIAL LAW, that one.
What Executive Order did Obama sign on March 16, same year? The one that says he can confiscate your land, equipment, even YOU if need be.
Friends, NO one signs shit like this unless he plans to USE it.
