The Donald's America.

Image result for laquan mcdonald image    I just watched  a video of yet another African American man being shot to death by someone who is supposed to be in a position of authority. This is becoming an all too familiar theme in our country. I bet you wouldn't have to tell the officer who executed Laquan McDonald that white lives matter.

Anyway, he is being charged with first degree murder, so it seems that we are making some progress, although it took over a year for us to be able to view the video tape. (TY Craig Futterman)

 This is the climate in which Donald Trump (and his handlers) have chosen to turn up his racist rhetoric and  let his minions loose on all those who disagree with him. So while some folks in the majority population continue to worry about Syrian refugees committing acts of terror, I will worry about the men and women who are sworn to protect us----- men and women who wear uniforms and bulletproof vests, catching a sudden case of "color arousal" at the wrong time.

Speaking of the aforementioned Mr. Trump, here is another cut and paste worthy article about his antics of late:

"We’re now on day two of the latest media controversy to engulf Donald Trump, namely his insistence that he personally saw footage that featured “thousands” of American Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11. For a time, Dr. Ben Carson even backed up Trump’s delusion by claiming that he had also seen the footage, a claim that was subsequently retracted by his campaign. For two days now, the media has been parsing Trump’s claim, which he now supports with an unsourced paragraph in an old Washington Post article that describes “law enforcement authorities” questioning people who were “allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops.”

The controversy is obviously a big deal to the media, and even has some predicting that this could be the thing that finally puts a dent in Trump’s poll numbers. On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski predicted that this could really hurt Trump:

'This is what could really hurt Trump. I mean if — he’s got to be smart and strong and correct, and if he’s not correct, when push comes to shove people will coalesce around a different candidate.'
This is hilarious on so many levels, starting with the notion that being “correct” means anything to Republican voters, who lap up GOP candidates’ weird fantasies like kittens with a saucer of milk. In this case, though, the media is blinding itself to the fact that Trump’s claim has more then enough truthiness to give him the cover he needs.

That old WaPo report, it has to be said, is pure bullshit. The reporters who wrote it have since said that they were unable to verify the allegation, but no one has questioned them on where it came from in the first place. Based on the lack of attribution, the only possibilities are that it was from some law enforcement source who insisted on deep background attribution (not likely given the broad nature of the claim), or it was from residents and/or local political figures who claimed knowledge of the incidents.
 
In any case, in the weeks following the attacks, literally everyone I ran into in New Jersey had a story about how they had personally seen the FBI or the cops raid their local convenience store/gas station/other business that happened to be owned by brown people, and that they knew for a fact the people scooped up in the raid had been plotting against America. People were scared shitless, and talking out of their asses.

For some reason, though, none of the coverage of Trump’s remarks has included the footage that Trump was probably talking about, footage that every American either saw or heard about that day and was deeply traumatized by. While still reeling from the tragedy, Fox News viewers got to see this footage of Palestinians allegedly celebrating the attacks:

Appearing when it did, this footage gave many Americans a distorted view of Muslim reaction to the attacks, which was, in fact, widespread condemnation. It is perhaps out of concern for this sort of distorted impression that media outlets are now reluctant to replay that footage, but it bears direct relevance to the political price Trump will pay for his current campaign of lies. To the Americans who matter to Trump, the resentful Republican base and low-information independents, Trump’s conflation of this footage with that unsourced WaPo report will be seen as a forgivable transgression at worst, and at best, something that feels true.

What I find even more bizarre about this current controversy is the immense gulf between coverage of Trump’s bogus 9/11 memories and the balls-out anti-black racism he displayed almost simultaneously. There may or may not have been people celebrating the fall of the Twin Towers on 9/11, but the racist tweet Trump sent out this weekend was definitively a lie, definitively racist, and yet became a one-day footnote to the 9/11 story.
 
Some have correctly expressed concern that Trump’s 9/11 story could lead to violence against Muslims, but his supporters’ anti-black sentiments have already led to violence against at least one black man. Tweeting that black people are doing all of the murdering would seem to be at least as problematic, and orders of magnitude more racist, yet it has been treated as a sideline. Only Bill O’Reilly has managed to press Trump about it, and even then, it was only to warn him that it might give people an excuse to falsely believe that racism is even a thing.

To her credit, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow became one of the very few media figures who has even been willing to use the word “racist” to describe Trump’s tweet on Monday night’s show, but even that was a small part of an 18-minute segment on the 9/11 story. The rest of the media is apparently allergic to calling Trump’s tweet “racist” and a “lie” in equal measure, instead often referring to the completely fabricated statistics from a made-up source “questionable.” No, people, “slugging percentage” and “QB rating” are questionable statistics, these are lies.

As outrageous as Trump’s lies are, I find the media’s treatment of them even more of an outrage, because Trump has no duty to serve the public. Apparently, the media doesn’t think it does, either, or at least not that segment of the public." [Article]

There is also the amusing lie Trump told about personally -- not on TV -- seeing people jumping out of the World Trade Center on 9/11 ... from his home several miles away from the site.

This is in "I can see Russia from my house!" territory. Only that was the Tina Fey satire version of Sarah Palin, whereas this is the real Trump. The Donald requires no satirist; he is a living, breathing self-parody.

It's not really reasonable to expect journalists to keep up with him. At this point, he's just spewing a constant stream of bullshit. The media can't address one bigoted lie before he's on to the next.

It's not crazy at all. Blacks are primitive, childlike retards. Whoever promises them the most gibsmedats is who they will vote for. Democunts need blacks to pull that lever for them, so they promise Laquan and Shaneequa that they will hook them up with lots of free goodies - goodies paid for, of course, by the productive, mostly white, members of society. It's a vicious cycle, and one that is hopefully going to be broken soon.

A 91-year-old man was beaten, then doused with gasoline before he and his home in northwest Detroit were set afire by a burglar, police said.

Paul Monchnik, a retired TV repairman, was found dead in his burning home in the 20500 block of Bentler Court around 3 a.m. Monday.

“He lived by himself; he was nearly deaf, so he lived in his own little world and got along in his own little world very comfortably,” said son Scott Monchnik, 56, who learned Monday morning of his father’s brutal death.

I personally saw a guy driving around flying a large Palestinian flag from his car on the morning of 9/12/2001. Israelis had reasons to celebrate also. Look up "dancing Israelis" on Youtube. And Benjamin Netanyahu said that 9/11 was good for Israel. By contrast, a million people went out with candles to protest the 9/11 attack in Iran. Strange how 17 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and people like Bob Graham of Florida have told us that the still classified 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission Report are about Saudi involvement.

If it weren't for the protests in Ferguson, etc., and by Black Lives Matter, I seriously doubt the Chicago police officer would have been charged. Rahm Emanuel fears the riots that could ensue. We saw how the DA in Ferguson acted as a defense attorney for officer Darren Wilson. And this is the first time a police officer in Chicago has been charged with murder in 35 years.

"In Chicago, Rahm Emanuel was trying to block the release of the tape of the police officer shooting and Black Folks still support him. How crazy is that?"

He was delayed the release of the tape until the investigation completed and the officer got charged. He wasn't trying to block it forever. He had to figure there was less chance of a riot if people watched that video knowing the officer on trial had already been indicted.

I don't like Mayor Rahmbo much. He's one of those corporate-type Blue Dog Democrats that are barely distinguishable from Republicans on economic issues. And black Chicagoans have even less reason to like him after the massive number of public schools he closed in their neighborhoods. But this issue with delaying the release of the shooting video doesn't really seem like all that big a deal.

Rafael Cruz is coming on strong. He triangulated right in the middle of Carson's bible-crazy and Trump's Nazi crazy so that he would pick up their followers if/when either or both of them flame out. Now that Dr Giggles is fading like a fart in a fire, he is tied with Trump in cornland. He is much more likely to take the nomination than either of his co-crazy cohorts, but there is no more despised an elected Republican among other elected Republican than Rafael. His fellow Tbag senators won't even risk being seen talking to him, much less publicly support him. Look for establishment types to damn him with public faint praise ("given a choice between Cruz or a bucket of fermented dioreah, I suppose I'd vote for Cruz") and wholesale backstabbing in private as W Bush has already. All of this adds of to Clinton being an odds on 5/4 favorite in the Vegas & London betting lines, and no Republican breaking 1/8.

"Was that the election that Obama obtained closed divorce records about his opponent and released them to the media in order to trash his reputation?"

Nope.

"I wonder how the Obama campaign got their hands on a sealed divorce case."

The Chicago Tribune applied to have them released in the public interest. Judge Schnider agreed.

""They were aware they were in a public court system and protection from embarrassment cannot be a basis for keeping from the public what's put in public courts," said Schnider, referring to Ryan and his ex-wife, actress Jeri Lynn Ryan. Additionally, Schnider said, "the openness of court files must be maintained, so that the public ... can be assured that there is no favoritism shown to the rich and the powerful."

When the ruling class is filled with poor people instead of very rich white people the government will represent the people.

The ruling class is the top 1%.

When the ruling class starts putting their privileged kids into government schools they force upon poor people the ruling class will represent "we the people."

When the ruling class gives up their armed security they will represent "we the people."

When the ruling class is no longer allowed to live in gated communities safe from crime they will represent "we the people."

When the ruling class is held to the same standard as regular citizens they will represent "we the people."

When the rich ruling class doesn't become even richer while working as public servants they will represent "we the people."

If you want an answer, why not just call up your friend and ask.

My guess, Axelrod knows Rahm covered up the video because of the April2015 election. Black protests means less chance of being reelected so bye bye video.


Imagine the different reaction if this was a right-wingnut mayor in texas.

Sadly, racism is acceptable if the politically correct political party is behind it for the gain of the party.

Axelrod is simply wrong. Or else he doesn't like Emanuel. I wouldn't blame him for that -- Emanuel is an asshole, and an economic right-winger as well. You should understand that all of the people in the Obama camp don't believe exactly the same things.

It took a year to investigate the cop because district attorneys always take extra-special care to get their ducks in a row before they prosecute the police, if they bother prosecuting them at all. It does not behoove DAs to piss off the police, whom they have to work with to their everyday job of going after civilian criminals. There is a conflict of interest there. If you want to fix that problem, you need to take the duty for prosecuting the cops away from DAs and give it to some kind of independent authority.

Emanuel delayed the video's release until the indictment could be handed down because he was trying to reduce the odds of rioting. Everyone looking for some kind of sinister motive on the mayor's part is barking up the wrong tree.

Today in yet more racism, a hate group in Texas (where else?) has published a list of the names and addresses of local Muslims:

"An anti-Islam group which staged an armed protest outside a Dallas Islamic centre has posted names and addresses of Muslims and 'Muslim sympathisers' on its Facebook page, adding to growing tensions in north Texas following the Paris terror attacks.

The group, which calls itself the Bureau of American Islamic Relations, staged an armed protest outside an Islamic centre in the Dallas suburb of Irving last Saturday. 'We’re here protesting Syrian refugees coming to America, protesting the Islamisation of America,' David Wright, a spokesman, told local FOX4 News.

The list of more than 50 names is taken from a record of people who spoke or signed up to express an opinion at an Irving city council meeting in March where the council voted to endorse a planned state bill emphasising the already enshrined primacy of domestic laws above foreign laws."


Hey, Donald Trump says he's in favor of a Muslim registry, so it must be a good idea, right?

Justice delayed is justice denied, and there are legitimate questions around that. But let's not lose sight that it is better than no justice at all, as in NYC and Cleveland, where justice consists of scam grand juries with the prosecutor acting as judge and defense attorney, with the sole discretion to empanel jurors who would not indict a ham sandwich if said sandwich was wearing a police uniform, and to knowingly present witnesses who did not in fact witness anything as in Ferguson.

If it is ok to publish the names of kkk members, it should be ok to publish the names of muslims and their sympathizerers.

Huh? So publishing the names of the members of a hate group is the same as the members of a religion? Conservative thought process at work. Pretty scary.

I'm not sure it is "ok" to publish the names of KKK members. Anonymous is an Internet vigilante group, and the things they do are often some combination of not ethical, not legal, or not smart.

Hell, even people who couldn't care less about the welfare of KKK members might not want to cheer on Anonymous. How can anyone be certain that the people they've outed as KKK members actually are KKK members? Innocent people could be defamed, and they aren't accountable to anyone for that.

But in any event, the issues surrounding these two events aren't remotely the same.

KKK members want to keep their identities secret because most respectable people find that kind of virulent racism disgusting.

Muslims aren't trying to keep their identities secret. The objection isn't that they've had their beliefs "exposed." Muslims aren't ashamed of being Muslim. The objection is that putting together a list of Muslims on the website of a hate group carries an implied threat that bigoted goons should go harass them or assault them.

Wow, that was a good slam on Anons. Clearly you think anons are a vigilante group hurting everyone including members of the KKK. My God, man can't you see the righteousness of anons correcting racist behavior of those who have, for years hurt Blacks?

You have the perception of an asshole then, Anon. And you're probably Steve yourself! That's your MO. lol

Just scroll through a few older posts and see which one of us is making sound arguments and which one of us is just trolling the other with spam. See which one conveniently disappears after "RACIST" smears don't have their desired effect.

Wise the fuck up, idiot.

I can see that racism is bad.

I can also see that tossing important civil liberties in the trash can -- things like, say, the right to privacy, or freedom of speech, or legal due process -- is likewise pretty bad.

That, in a nutshell, is what is wrong with radical crusader types like Anonymous. They think they can put on their capes and fight injustice, and if they create other injustices along the way, hey, no biggie. They're the good guys! Who cares about the costs to society? What could possibly go wrong????

There is a reason we don't leave justice up to angry mobs.
