King Coward and America’s Cycle of Racial Stupidity

EDWARD PALTZIK – Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley is already known for his starring role in Maryland’s evisceration of the Second Amendment during his former life as Governor of the Old Line State.  Now he is better known as a first-rate coward.  On stage at the leftist Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix a couple of weekends ago, O’Malley innocuously stated “black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter.” For this intolerable transgression, he was shouted off the stage by protesters who apparently believed that O’Malley’s statement detracted from “black lives matter,” the left’s latest rallying cry against perceived anti-black police brutality.  Appearing thereafter on the internet-based racist program “This Week in Blackness,” host L. Joy Williams asked O’Malley if he understood how insensitive he had been to suggest that all lives matter.  O’Malley, apparently paralyzed by the potent venom of political correctness, kowtowed to Williams and her crazed listeners: “I certainly do and, in fact, believe what I first said was that ‘black lives matter’ before those other two phrases.  And when I said those other two phrases I meant no disrespect to the point, which I understand, that black lives matter is making.” Crown O’Malley as “King Coward.” Unless he really believes that black lives matter more than other lives, in which case he is insane rather than craven.

O’Malley’s mea culpa is emblematic of a much larger problem in the United States, which is the lack of honest public discussion about racial issues.  Liberal politicians and talking heads typically fill the airwaves in the immediate aftermath of incidents between blacks and police officers with hysterical pre-evidentiary demands for justice, blanket condemnation of law enforcement, and disingenuous calls for candid discourse on the topic of race.  Next, the incident in question is quickly inflated out of proportion like an unwieldy blimp fueled by breathtaking quantities of hot air, as meaningless buzzwords such as “dialogue,” “healing” and “reform” are bandied about in the media.  Before long, the bottom-feeding scandalmongers who make their sordid living stoking racial tensions trumpet their heroic entrance as characters in the story.  Sometimes this lamentable cycle concludes with an opportunistic riot or two.  After all, nothing calls attention to the brutal institutional excesses of law enforcement, the avaricious thirst for power of the ruthless white ruling class, and the plight of oppressed urban minorities quite as effectively as a few healthy rounds of arson, looting and good old mayhem.  As deranged Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake memorably said this past April as she watched her city vandalized by violent criminals masquerading as legitimate protesters, “[we] gave those who wished to destroy space.”

Sadly, this cycle of racially charged stupidity will play out over and over again until the liberal lies that make it all possible are extinguished.  Until then, honest discussion of racial issues in the town square will be frustrated.  When it comes to perpetuating a lie, one of the key tactics utilized by the American left comes straight from the Joseph Goebbels playbook: “If  you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  Using the Goebbels “big lie” theory masterfully in recent decades, liberal intelligentsia realized enormous “gains” on a wide range of subjects as they bulldozed ever closer to their messianic goal of establishing a utopian society.  The problem is that leftist leaders measure “gains” rather differently than normal people, who generally view a gain according to the dictionary definition as an improvement of a particular situation.  Indeed, society’s loss can often be the left’s gain.  For example, in the area of race relations, the left’s elite measure “gains” by the degree to which they can ratchet up racial strife on as large a scale as possible.

Although the left’s tendency to turn up the heat of racial tensions is despicable, it is actually a rational survival strategy.  Liberal politicians and other individuals who depend on ongoing racial discord to maintain power and relevance know well that the essence of leftism is perpetual struggle.  If the veil of perpetual struggle were to be removed, then the left’s insidious worldview would be exposed for what it is – a hollow and poisonous concoction of misery.  In this way, the endless quest to eradicate racism (whether real or imagined), which by its nature involves struggle, is well suited to preserving the power of the left’s ruling class.  Ironically, then, one of the biggest threats to the left’s perpetual struggle, and thus to the future success of the Democratic Party, would be the economic advancement of blacks and other minorities.  Never mind that liberal cries of institutional, crushing racism in the United States 2015 are patently false and immensely counterproductive to a healthy society, that affirmative action and other un-American programs have given minorities countless unearned advantages in recent years, or that a black man has occupied the White House for seven years.  All the left’s ruling class has to do to hold on to power is make sure that enough people perceive that widespread racism continues to exist.  There are many recent examples of this “big lie” strategy at work in politics, the media and even law enforcement.

The leading example in the political arena is of course Obama, a devious man uniquely unqualified to lead the United States and who would never have been elected but for the color of his skin.  Not only was this charlatan elected because of skin color, he is familiar with its manipulation for political ends, which has significantly harmed race relations in this country.  Obama has repeatedly inserted himself into racial controversies well beyond the scope of the President’s duties by making divisive, gratuitous comments that serve as accelerant for the flames of racial tension.  One example of many was his assertion after George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin that “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” which he coupled with a melodramatic plea for Americans to “do some soul-searching.”  Comments of that ilk advanced Obama’s divisive agenda and sent a clear signal that Obama is not America’s President; rather, he is only the President of those who look like him or think like him.  George Zimmerman was subsequently acquitted, but not before Obama used the story to advance his fictional narrative of young black men stealthily hunted by bloodthirsty gun-toting lunatics.

Not to be outdone by Obama is New York City’s uber-radical Mayor, Bill de Blasio, who in less than two years has displayed dazzling talent for exacerbating racial problems.  On  December 7, 2014, several days after a grand jury declined to indict white NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo in connection with the unintentional death of black Eric Garner, de Blasio made a series of racially agitating remarks, among them: “We all want to look up to figures of authority and everyone knows the police protect us.  But there is that fear that there could be that one moment of misunderstanding with a young man of color and that young man may never come back.”  Two weeks later, Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, a black man, ambushed and shot to death two on-duty NYPD officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, as revenge for Garner’s death.  The Mayor’s inflammatory comments helped create animosity toward law enforcement that may have contributed to the death of two cops, but it was a small price to pay in exchange for the attention de Blasio generated for his destabilizing message that cops are generally on the prowl for blameless young men of color to torment.

Perhaps no individual has benefitted more from big racial lies than professional agitator, extortionist and scandalmonger Al Sharpton.  The perceived oppression of blacks has allowed this sanctimonious bottom-feeder (and others like him) to build enormous power by inserting himself into seemingly every major national racial blowup and then blowing them up some more to increase his malignant influence, which is derived in part from extorting major companies into making donations to Sharpton’s crooked National Action Network under threat of mass boycott.  Although Sharpton does not officially hold any public office, he enjoys a disturbing level of access to Obama, de Blasio and other members of the left’s ruling class.  However, in fairness to Sharpton, his role as racial puppet master is well deserved based on his glittering resume of racial arson.  Indeed, he has been one of the leading practitioners in the area of race lies ever since he orchestrated the Tawana Brawley rape hoax in 1987, when Brawley falsely accused six white men of raping her.

Liberal commentators, disguised as “journalists” in the mainstream media and marching in lockstep with their favored Democratic politicians and purported civil rights leaders, perpetuate America’s dishonest racial discourse with easy-to-spot inflammatory remarks and naked lies (with a few exceptions such as FOX News).  Far harder to detect are the media’s lies by omission.  Selective omissions of certain types of stories, or outright refusal to report on those stories, are far more damaging to honest public discourse than the merely biased commentary that long ago replaced legitimate journalism.  This important distinction is illustrated by the mainstream media’s grossly distorted coverage of the race riots that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri and elsewhere in August 2014 after a grand jury properly declined to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in connection with his justified fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown when the enormous Brown savagely attacked the much smaller Wilson.  The media vainly attempted to portray the riots as legitimate protests, or alternatively, as acceptable expressions of civil disobedience in response to purported socio-economic oppression by whites.  However, honest, rational people watching the riots unfold could see the chaotic truth on their TV screens: arson, looting, rioting, vandalism and violence, an assortment of crimes carried out by residents, opportunists and professional agitators alike, and almost all of them black.  The Ferguson riots were unusual in that they damaged the left’s narrative of noble racial struggle by putting on display an unvarnished display of pure criminal activity that had nothing to do with any sort of legitimate civil rights movement and everything to do with misplaced rage over the legal system’s exoneration of an innocent police officer who chose self-defense over death.

The coverage of the Ferguson situation was an aberration because the story was so big that the media had to cover it, and the behavior of the rioters so bad that no amount of liberal lies could put a positive spin on what we witnessed on TV.  Unfortunately, many important racial stories are easily snuffed out by omission.  The most noteworthy such story is the ongoing nationwide epidemic of black mob attacks in which violent groups of young black men beat and terrorize white victims.  Such black-on-white violence is grossly inconsistent with the left’s narrative of perpetual racial struggle.  This is because in the left’s view, any social struggle worth waging must galvanize liberal sensitivities; otherwise, a struggle will not gain the traction needed to achieve the left’s utopian agenda.  Therefore, any worthwhile social struggle must come against traditional, stereotypical oppressors such as the white establishment.  In fact, any other type of racial struggle threatens to undermine the left’s objectives.  Since the legitimate story of whites grappling with the devastating and growing problem of black mob violence lacks any traditional element of struggle against the white establishment, and also threatens to expose the left’s racial lies, the mainstream media has collectively decided not to report on the story in any meaningful way.

One of the most devastating recent black-on-white mob attacks took place in downtown Cincinnati on July 4, 2015 (just days before the City was scheduled to host the MLB All-Star Game), when the white victim, a 27-year-old tourist from Indiana named Christopher McKnight, was swarmed and beaten to a bloody pulp by about 40 angry black teens who had just attended a rap concert.  This alarming, unprovoked incident of ultra-violence was ignored by the mainstream media, but was captured on video and is readily available on the Internet.  As McKnight lay prostrate on the ground in the video, cruel bystanders shout “you got knocked the fuck out, bitch!”  Even as McKnight was hospitalized, Police Chief Jeff Blackwell unconvincingly claimed “we are the safest big City in America.”  Fortunately, after police initially caved in to political correctness and refused to classify this attack as the obvious hate crime that it is (putting aside for a moment the wisdom or lack thereof of the hate crime concept), the beating is finally being investigated as such.

On June 6, 2015, a black mob savagely attacked a white family at a community event in Florence, Alabama.  Between twenty and thirty black teens yelled “Get that white!” as they tased and beat Kevin Dawes while his wife and sons watched helplessly.  The attack started when the mob attacked Dawes’s 14-year-old son from behind and without provocation.  When Dawes defended his son, the mob turned its full aggression on Dawes before smashing the windows of the family’s van as Dawes’s wife and 4-year-old son huddled inside the van.  Only the sound of approaching police sirens ended the attack and prevented Dawes from suffering worse than the broken facial bone, black eye and burn marks he sustained.  Ironically, the Dawes attack, which was ignored by the mainstream media, occurred on the same day as the highly publicized pool party incident in McKinney, Texas, during which  there were no physical injuries.  Meanwhile, a real incident of racial violence in Alabama was swept under the rug.

On May 1, 2015 in the Baltimore area, a mob of black teens brutally assaulted Richard Fletcher, a 61-year-old white man, outside his home.  The assailants beat Fletcher so severely that he was placed in a medically induced coma.  The unprovoked incident occurred when Fletcher attempted to intervene after he saw two girls fighting near his truck.  Said one neighbor about the racist reign of terror inflicted upon the neighborhood by the teens: “You wouldn’t believe it. Everybody goes in the house and shuts their door. You have to live like a prisoner.”  The mainstream media also ignored this highly newsworthy story even as they had a feeding frenzy about the injustice of the Freddie Gray case in the very same Baltimore area at around the same time as the Fletcher attack.

As the glossed-over black mob attacks illustrate, the left talks a good game about open racial discourse, but doesn’t really want to have an honest discussion about racial issues in America.  And that’s a shame, because denying reality is not only intellectually dishonest, its just flat out dangerous.  Indeed, we’ve sadly reached the point where many media outlets are so determined to abet racial ignorance that they omit race from “wanted” reports that are supposed to help citizens avoid and identify violent felons wanted by law enforcement.  When enough people wake up and realize that reality matters, perhaps liberals will finally get the honest discussion they always tried to suppress.

HERE Is WHAT WILL HAPPEN If The DEEP STATE TAKES DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP & It’s NOT PRETTY … FOR THEM “The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson ELDER PATRIOT – Corrupt politicians ignore Jefferson’s directive to their own detriment. It’s no longer political, it’s personal. Americans have had their eyes opened by the ascension of Donald Trump and no amount of leftwing money can put the Freedom Movement genie back in the bottle. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz made that observation after reviewing the results of the 2016 elections and the expectations of the voters. Cruz, who had the most high profile personality clash with Donald Trump during the Republican primary process nevertheless embraced Trump’s America First agenda and said, “If we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly.” Candidate Trump promised many things – border control, lower taxes, fairer trade relations, a balanced budget, healthcare that puts the people first not the government, safer communities, and – to the extent possible – an end to foreign wars. What, among those promises, should any Republican, nay any American, have a problem with? After four months without a single legislative achievement, Congressional and Senatorial Republicans – notably John McCain, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham – have joined the Democrats in investigating President Trump absent a single shred of evidence that an underlying crime has been committed. So, what gives? Well, there was one additional promise that Trump made on his way to the White House that has some Republicans joining with Democrats and quaking in their boots, Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp.” As we reported yesterday, “An F.B.I. agent with ‘intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case’ told us that they uncovered evidence of such massive corruption that the agents involved realized that damned near the entire government could be brought down.” The criminal co-conspirators in both parties realized almost immediately that the new sheriff wasn’t interested in joining them in the swamp so they launched, what can only be characterized as, a coup attempt. Democrats are well schooled in such things probably because of their close alliance with Marxist regimes that can only gain power by seizing it through bloody civil wars. It should be noted that the Democratic Party has already done this once before. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven years ago the Democrats waged a war against the First Republican President Abraham Lincoln for giving Blacks their freedom. That war came at a high price, as many as 700,000 Americans died fighting for what they believe in. To put that in perspective, these casualties exceed the nation’s loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam. Today, Americans are still prepared to fight and die to protect their children’s God-given freedoms. Despite what you are reading and hearing in the mainstream media, they aren’t the leftwing-funded rioters, the pussy hat-wearing feminists, or the cuck bois that cant handle a micro aggression. No, the Americans that back Donald Trump are well armed. Donald Trump’s presidency will move forward politically lest the sixty million patriots who voted for him, that are comprised of the large majority of military voters, police, and NRA members, move it forward by force. These patriots are armed, trained, prepared, and have proven their discipline. They have grown disgusted by the corruption in Washington and will do whatever is necessary to make sure Trump’s Freedom Agenda moves forward and under the direction of Donald Trump himself. No amount of fake news based on unsubstantiated charges by unnamed sources is going to change that. The battle lines have been drawn and no amount of finger pointing is going to convince these patriots to let anyone overturn the election results. So why are establishment politicians courting a bloodbath on the streets of America that will also threaten them personally when they could be part of Making America Great Again? It’s because they have been caught red-handed and up to their eyeballs in a worldwide criminal conspiracy that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with defrauding the American taxpayers. And, now that they’ve been caught robbing the world’s largest bank – the U.S. treasury – they have chosen to go out in a blaze of glory rather than try to defend the indefensible at trial. Washington’s criminal elites have chosen to go to war to unseat our duly elected president. It’s time to make our voices heard before this turns very ugly. Buckle your chin strap, America is counting on you. EDITORS NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ARMS BUT RATHER AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE DEEP STATES OVERTURNS A DUELY ELECTED PRESIDENT. HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
