ODS

This ODS (Obama derangement syndrome) is no joke. And here I thought that the folks over at The National Review were the smartest of the wingnut lot.
William F. Buckley, Jr., the intellectual racist, must be turning over in his grave.


Sarah Palin blaming the media and Obama for her daughter's potentially criminal behavior I can understand. Let's face it, she is not too bright. But this kind of rhetoric coming from a so called intellectual is surprising.


I never heard of Jim Geraghty before, and after reading what he had to write for National Review I am glad I didn't.  


This genius actually said that Barack Obama is to blame for the NFL's domestic violence problem.


  "Jim Geraghty, an editor at the conservative National Review wonders if it’s possible that the recent scandals rocking the NFL might in some way be traced to President Barack Obama.


“Does our president just reflect a broad cultural trend in the behavior of leaders,” Geraghty wrote Monday, “or does he set the tone from the top?”
From there, Geraghty goes on to chronicle a number of national scandals, like the IRS’s alleged targeting of conservative groups and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodel‘s botched response to a rash of misconduct within the league:
… Goodell told CBS This Morning he never saw the second tape of Rice striking his wife before Monday. He said, “when we make a decision we want to have all the information that’s available. When we met with Ray Rice and his representatives it was ambiguous about what actually happened.” Friday afternoon, he announced the league would be making a new effort in dealing with unacceptable player conduct . . . by forming a special committee. …
The country feels deeply betrayed by its governing and economic elites. Enter Obama. He’s elected. … 
And you know what we got. Stimulus waste; State Department employees on paid leave over Benghazi; “At this point, what difference does it make?”; the VA, where the secretary belatedly discovered an “unacceptable lack of integrity within some of our veterans health facilities,” Obamacare, where Kathleen Sebelius let the president go out and say things about the website she knew weren’t true, and still kept her job for several months. The NSA.
Geraghty concludes: “The message has been sent, far and wide: Accountability is for suckers.” [Source] 


Just wow.


Let's give conservatives a gold medal for the shark jumping event in the clueless Olympics.


My man even threw in a Benghazi reference for good measure. He made sure that there is enough red meat for all the hungry ODS sufferers out there.


I can only hope that their coverage under Obamacare will help them pay for a cure.

Less than human.

May this face haunt Robert Benchley's dreams foreverIt's hard for me, a black man, to understand some folks in the majority population and the indifference they feel about their fellow countrymen who happen to be black.


I just read somewhere that white people can't really help themselves. That it's sort of a subconscious condition that is brought on by their own "color aroused" issues, and that it manifests itself no matter how well intentioned they are.


I am thinking of the governor of Alabama as I write this post.


His response to the tragic death of a little 8 year old girl was stunning in its level of insensitivity and ignorance.

"Thursday, after a search coordinated by local police and the FBI, as well as volunteers from the community, Hiawayi’s body was found behind an abandoned building. Police are investigating her death as a homicide, in conjunction with the FBI; no cause of death or possible suspects have been announced.


When reporters asked Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley to comment on the news that Hiawayi’s body had been found, these were the words of comfort and support he had for Hiawayi’s family:*


“There are things that happen we just don’t understand. There are difficulties in families. We don’t know, maybe drug related. Maybe alcohol related. Maybe family problems. We just don’t know what the situation is.” 
Bentley added he needs to do everything he can to make families more sound.
What a peach. A child goes missing, her family is frantic and organizing a search for her, and the governor’s first thought when her body is found is to shake his head and pontificate on the sad, sad state of the Black Family In America Today. And let’s keep in mind that absolutely no one in law enforcement has said anything to suggest that Haiwayi’s family had anything to do with her abduction and killing. Needless to say, people in Alabama are Not Happy.


Gov. Bentley has not yet replied to press queries about his comments Thursday (see update below), but on Friday, he abruptly offered a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect and has issued a written statement saying something rather different from his earlier comments about the sad family with its possible drug and alcohol problems:
“Dianne and I were heartbroken to learn of the tragic death of this innocent child. We have been praying and following the situation closely, and our prayers for comfort are with Hiawayi’s family.
“We won’t rest until this little girl’s killer is brought to justice. Alabama’s state law enforcement agencies have been actively assisting the Prichard Police Department in the investigation into the death of Hiawayi Robinson. I directed the Secretary of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Spencer Collier, to go to Prichard and offer any resources needed. As soon as Hiawayi was reported missing, we sent 10 State Bureau of Investigation agents to Prichard, and our Trooper Aviation Unit also assisted in helping to find Hiawayi. Those agents will remain in Prichard until a suspect has been arrested. Furthermore, I’ve directed an increased presence of state troopers in Prichard until the person who committed this terrible act has been found.”


Of course the governor changed his stance after outside pressure helped to soothe his conscience.


But as the writer in Wonkette eloquently stated, the governor would have had something quite different to say if little blond 8 year old Hannah had been murdered in such a fashion.


"And yes, we are bloody well playing the race card. Anyone who thinks Gov. Bentley or any politician would say the same thing if an 8-year-old white girl went missing and was found murdered is a fool. Don’t worry, we’re already taking bets on which Fox News anchor will insist that Bentley’s comments had nothing to do with race." [Source] (h/t Dena for this story) 

Finally, I didn't want to blog about this next story, but.......OK I am going to go ahead and blog about it.

There is this woman in Florida, who, thanks to plastic surgery, now has three breasts.

I will not post her picture on this site, but one of you sickos who gets off on such things can click on this link to see just what a woman with three breasts happens to look like.

"A massage therapist claims to have undergone plastic surgery to obtain a third breast.


Jasmine Tridevil (not her real name) says she had the surgery “a few months ago” and is now hell bent on starring in her own reality TV show.


The 21-year-old has hired a camera crew to follow her around and hopes to pitch her show to MTV. Writing on her Facebook page, she says she has upcoming appearances on the Jimmy Kimmel show and the Inside Edition."


Lord have mercy! This is just sick.


And no, I would not feel any different if this woman had plastic surgery to add another ass.


That would be just as sick....I think.

Are their hearts really into it?

I wouldn't blame President Obama if he was feeling a little nervous these days.


There have been two attempted break-ins into his home over the past few days.
That would make anybody nervous, but if you happen to be the first Negro president of these divided states of America, it's enough to make you think twice before you go anywhere near John Q Public.


I know that the President has Secret Service protections, but let's face it; I am not sure that their hearts are really into it. (I bet there are a lot of FOX viewers in their ranks.)


Anyway, the boys in the dark suits are being criticized once again for slipping on the job. And you have to wonder if this time their critics aren't on to something.


"Never before has an intruder on the grounds managed to enter the White House itself," said Ronald Kessler, author of a recent book that is very critical of the Secret Service. "The incident on Friday evening is the most shocking example yet of how dangerously lax the Secret Service has become, failing at its most basic job - to protect the president and first family in the White House."


Pretty much every Negro in America is thinking the same thing: This wouldn't be happening if the family occupying 1600 Pennsylvania, Avenue looked more like the Nelsons and less like the Huxtables. 


I can't blame Negroes for their angst and concerns. The hatred for this particular president runs deep.

"A Secret Service official told CBS News that the agency would look into all of the factors that prompted agents on the scene to decide against using force to prevent the man from entering the residence.


"They showed restraint," the official said. "But we're not happy with where he was arrested. That cannot happen."


I am sure the Obamas aren't happy, either. That man was in their house for crying out loud!


I know that they will be gone in a couple of years, but for now, it is still their house. And they, like every other American, should feel safe while they are there.

CAPTION SATURDAY.

Uniformed Secret Service officers walk along the lawn on the North side of the White House in Washington, Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014.




Please give me a caption for this pic.


For example:


Keep looking. The president said he chipped it with a 9 -iron out here somewhere.

To shake or not to shake....

You don't always have to chase racism; sometimes racism chases you.


My homie, Marc Lamont Hill, found that out in a very bizarre way, recently.


"CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill had an encounter of the racist kind while at a sports bar in Detroit, according to a series of tweets he sent out Friday.


As Hill tells it, he was at Sporting News Grill in Detroit Thursday night when an “old white guy” approached him and his company to ask, “What are you blacks doing here?”


Hill said the man stuck his hand out for a handshake. “So, me and the people I’m with are looking like we’re getting punked,” Hill tweeted. He said the man then asked for a handshake, which Hill declined. “Nah.”


Then, the CNN contributor said a group of white people nearby told the potentially drunk patron to leave the restaurant. “Get out of here, Henry,” Hill recalled them saying, “You’re embarrassing all of us.”


“Apparently, Henry had been using the n-word all night,” Hill tweeted. “We just didn’t hear him. They told the server what happened and they made him leave.”
In Hill’s final tweet on the matter, he said he wasn’t angry, calling the situation


“bizarre.”


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


Mediaite reached out to Sporting News Grill for comment. The manager we spoke with, who deserves a raise for how polite and concerned she was on the phone, said she was not working at the time of the alleged incident but that she would look into it and get back to us.


We’ve also reached out to Hill for more details, like whether the possibly racist man smelled like booze and whether Hill alerted management." [Source]


Yes, "bizarre" indeed.


Just some "old white guy" being true to himself after a few drinks.


Still, I take issue with Hill making the regulars in the grill look like they had a "profile in courage" moment.


They obviously knew the guy.


I wonder how many nights he dropped the n-word to the crowd while they laughed and downed Coronas? Henry was apparently dropping the n-word out of earshot of Hill and his crew on this particular night as well.


The only reason that "group of white people" told old Henry to leave was because he was "embarrassing" them, not because he was making a group of people feel like they didn't belong and that he was being an ignorant racist.


“But I appreciate the white customers for saying something,” he concluded. “It matters.”


I don't. Not if the only reason they said "something" was because the Negroes were there. I would really appreciate them saying "something" on the nights when Henry goes all David Duke and there are no Negroes in the house.


That's what would really matter, Marc. Not acting a certain way for the sake of political correctness.

Southern discomfort.

Folks are going crazy in the South these days.


I don't ever remember reading about so many killers taking out their own family members and loved ones in such large numbers in one part of the country.


I wonder what is responsible for this phenomenon.


We all know the story by now of Timothy Ray Jones Jr., the animal who allegedly killed his five children and dumped their bodies in a trash bag. (I think he was from Alabama.)


And now we have Don Spirit. This animal who was masquerading as a human being allegedly killed his adult daughter, five grandchildren, and one other child.


 "A man in Bell shot and killed his daughter and six grandchildren before turning the gun on himself Thursday afternoon in a small town about an hour west of Gainesville.


The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office confirmed the gruesome details in a press conference Thursday night.


Gilchrist County Sheriff Robert Schulz said Don Spirit is the man responsible for the slayings.


Schulz said deputies were called to the rural home on around 4 p.m. after Spirit called 911 and threatened to harm himself and others. When deputies arrived, Spirit committed suicide, Schulz said. GCSO believes the victims were already dead when officers arrived." [Source]


I am against the death penalty when it is carried out by the state. But if someone like this wants to go ahead and sentence himself to death and then carry out the sentence, well...


Sadly, this kind of stuff happens in places like Florida far too often. It's a dog bites man story down there.


And before my white friends accuse me of being a "racialist"; please note that I am mentioning the story a depraved Negro named George Mason III as well.


This Negro killed three family members and tried to kill a fourth before being taken out by a truck.


"A Florida man killed three relatives Friday and tried to gun down a fourth when a passing truck ran over the murderer, halting his rampage, police said.


George Mason III, 42, is clinging to life after being struck in the middle of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in the town of Brooksville as he chased after his half-brother, Gabriel Taylor, 33.


Taylor was shot several times, including once in the head, and is in critical condition, police said." [Source]


Florida again.


There must be something in the water.

White collar [color] crimes.

We have some real hooligans and thugs acting up in Pistolvania these days.


First, an out of control urban mob beat a couple of Gay guys silly here in Center City, Philadelphia.


And in Northeast, Pistolvania some guy killed a state trooper and seriously injured his partner because he doesn't like cops.


As the trolls who visit this site are always quick to tell me: America has a Negro problem.


But wait.......



"A Philadelphia gay couple are still reeling after allegedly being attacked and beaten in what's been described as a possible hate crime last week.
The men, who have reportedly asked to remain anonymous, told CBS Philadelphia that they were reportedly attacked by a "well-dressed" and intoxicated mob that began taunting the men while they were on their way to dinner.


According to Queerty, two men and six women allegedly assaulted the men, ages 27 and 28, after asking the pair first if they were "fucking boyfriends" and then if they were "dirty fags."


One victim suffered a bone fracture in his face that will require surgery, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.


View image on TwitterThough police remained skeptical at first as to the true motivations of the crime, the case is now being handled as a hate crime.


"It was a bunch of screams at first," witness Geoff Nagle told reporters. "...a lot of punching and kicking." One of the victims stated that he thought his partner was dead after the attackers "threw his head onto the ground.”


The suspects are still at large -- "


Well, thanks to social media, not for long.


Apparently they left an upscale eatery and had a little too much to drink.


But alas, they were not Negroes.


And apparently neither is this next guy.


"Hundreds of law enforcement officers continue to search for the man police say ambushed and shot two Pennsylvania state troopers last week, killing one and seriously injuring the other. As the search for the suspected shooter entered its sixth day Wednesday, schools in the area announced that they were canceling classes in response.
Police in Pennsylvania on Tuesday identified Eric Matthew Frein, 31, as the suspect they had charged with the shootings. Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said that Frein is “armed and extremely dangerous,” describing him as a highly-trained survivalist who has expressed a desire to kill police officers and other people.


“He has made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers'".


When I read about a "survivalist" who likes to kill people a red flag goes off.


Negroes in Pistolvania please lock your doors.


"Court documents revealed Tuesday that investigators found an Army manual called “Sniper Training and Employment” in Frein’s bedroom at the home where he lived with his parents a few miles from the state police barracks where the shootings occurred.


The suspect’s father, an Army veteran, told police that his son was an excellent marksman, who “doesn’t miss.”' [Source]


Lord have mercy!


Let me revise that warning: Lock your doors and don't go anywhere near your windows.

This is not how it went down in Pretty Woman.

It's tough being a sister out here these days. Even professional sisters who are just out on the town and trying to kick back get profiled and embarrassed.


First it was Daniele Watts, now it's Kantaki Washington and her friends who were mistaken for ladies of the night.


''In an interview with AlterNet, New York City lawyer Kantaki Washington claimed that she and two friends — all three black women — were having drinks at the Standard Hotel bar in the Meatpacking District back in August when security approached them and accused them of “soliciting.”


At first, Washington said she did not know what the man meant, asking him, “Soliciting what?” When he persists, she said she replied, “Dude, I’m a lawyer and these women are educators. Why the hell would I be in here soliciting prostitution?” [Source]


Because you are black Miss. That's why. *sarcasm off*


"Following the incident, Washington received an email from the hotel offering her a bottle of champagne and dinner for four at The Standard Grill as an apology with not addressing the specifics of the offense. She told the site she believes she and her friends were racially profiled."


Gee, ya think?


Ms. Washington, of course you were racially profiled. Just because you live in New York City doesn't mean that you are immune from the ignorance and "color aroused" thinking that is associated with the South.


The same can be said for Ms. Watts. She was given the business in very liberal -and very blue- Los Angeles. It doesn't really matter where you are in the land of the free, at any moment you can get a reality check from a color aroused asshole.


BTW, Ms. Watts, because she lives in California, was under no obligation to show that police officer in Los Angeles her ID just because he demanded it. And those women in New York had every right to be offended when some hotel security guard accused them of being prostitutes.


The hotel offered Ms. Washington a bottle of champagne and dinner for four for her troubles.


If only it was that easy to make the pain and humiliation that these women were subjected to go away.

"A history of violence"

A long time ago when I was a single man and getting my party on, I tried to hook up with a beautiful sister while partying in another country.



I approached her and tried to make small talk, but before I could even ask her name she asked me if I was an American. I asked her why she asked, and she said that it was because I looked and dressed like an American.



I told her that I was born and raised in Jamaica, but yes, guilty as charged, I now make my home in America.



"I don't like American guys", she said, "You all are too macho and into that John Wayne culture. Look at your favorite games: Football; hockey; boxing; and stuff like that." (OK, that was awhile ago, and we don't even do the "boxing" thing that much anymore. It's more like MMA these days. But I get what she was trying to say.)



I was thinking of how I struck out with that Nubian yesterday, as I listened to pundit after pundit talk about the NFL's violence problem.



Let's face it, whether it's against children, or against women, the NFL now has a huge problem on its very well paid hands.



The good news for them is, though, that like that sister in the club in Bermuda was saying; Americans embrace violence, and football brings it for 16  games every year. That kind of passion just doesn't go away overnight. Throw in all the gambling that goes along with it and you have the perfect storm.  



The NFL knows this, and they have the billions to back it up.



For now, Roger Goodell and the boys will just ride out this storm, because they know that at the end of the day, Americans love their controlled violence and mayhem. They know that the same people pontificating and sermonizing on television about all the terrible things that the NFL is doing, will be offering their insight into Tom Brady's lack of an offensive line or Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense in a few weeks.



 I am thinking about that young lady in Hamilton, Bermuda again. I wonder what she did with her life.



Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if she married some dude who played in the NFL.

When white privilege can go wrong.

Man the police have really been on a roll lately.


Apparently it's not only black men who get the business from folks who swear "to protect and serve"; it seems that black women have been catching it as well.


Now comes another story from Los Angeles where a sister was profiled and arrested for....wait for it...showing public displays of affection with her white husband.


"Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts says she was accosted by police and handcuffed on Thursday in Los Angeles after being mistaken for a prostitute.Watts, who played house slave "CoCo" in "Django" and is Martin Lawrence's daughter on the new FX comedy "Partners," shared the news on Facebook.


"Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place," she wrote.


Watts also posted a picture of herself sobbing as she stood in front of an office in shorts, a t-shirt, and running shoes.


An LAPD public information officer said there was no record of the incident as Watts wasn't arrested or brought into the station for questioning.


According to Watts and her husband Brian James Lucas, Studio City police mistook the couple for a prostitute and john after they showed public displays of affection. Watts refused to show her ID to the cops, and was therefore handcuffed and seated in the back of their car until they could figure out who she was. They let her go quickly afterward." [Source]


The message here is this: Sisters, if you are married to (or dating) a white man, be very careful how you interact with him in public; sadly, you could be mistaken for a prostitute.


Her poor husband got a white privilege reality check. I am not sure that he signed up for this when he linked up with this sister, but now he knows.


Another white person now understands what it feels like to have white privilege go wrong. Like the husband of Daniele Watts, her situation was brought on by her interaction with Negroes.

"SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (AP) — A woman has criticized police in the Utah County city of Saratoga Springs over the fatal shooting of her 22-year-old son, saying she believes the outcome would have been different had he not been black.


Susan Hunt of Saratoga Springs said her family wants answers about what happened leading up to Wednesday's shooting by officers of her son, Darrien Hunt.


On Saturday afternoon, law enforcement authorities issued a statement saying that the man lunged at officers with a sword.


The Deseret News reported that police say they were called about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday to investigate a "suspicious" man walking near businesses along Redwood Road while carrying a "Samurai-type sword."


Before the statement was issued, Susan Hunt told the Deseret News: "They killed my son because he's black. No white boy with a little sword would they shoot while he's running away.


"Those stupid cops thought they had to murder over a toy. This is my baby. This is my family. And they ruined my family."


The city on Friday issued a statement saying the shooting was under investigation by the county attorney's office.


"We sympathize with Mr. Hunt's family during this difficult time," the statement says. "Any claim that our officers' actions were a result of Mr. Hunt's race is completely unfounded and speculative. Our officers responded to a call for service and addressed the situation that was presented to them."


Based on the limited information the family has been given, Susan Hunt said, it believes a shot was fired by police during the confrontation and multiple shots were fired after he ran away."


"When the officers made contact with Mr. Hunt, he brandished the sword and lunged toward the officers with the sword, at which time Mr. Hunt was shot," Utah County Chief Deputy Attorney Tim Taylor said in a statement. [Source]  


Ms. Hunt, welcome to our world. Please keep talking about your experience to white America. Maybe they will understand what it's like a little better if it's coming from you.
