Special Ed Miliband is going to do something about it.

I vaguely remember some controversy out of some English city named Rothertown.





Good PR For Freddie Gray

27 04 2015

Baltimore

To all you Baltimore Bellcurvians who are screaming that “we want us some justiceseseses for Freddie Gray.”

You do realize that you’re doing Freddie Gray a public relations disservice, don’t you?  With every pic and video out of the Inner Harbor (“safe space” — Stephanie Rawlings-Blake) showing car and business windows being broken, reporters and baseball fans being attacked, more and more people are going to infer from those optics that Freddie Gray somehow caused his own death, even if he actually didn’t.

Optics matter.  Why do you think Baraq Obama, Eric Holder and the civil rights industry practically chimped out when the security stills from the Ferguson Market were released?





Leave Them Kids Alone

Las Vegas

W rips O.  But not about anything that O should be ripped:

In a closed-door meeting with Jewish donors on Saturday night, former President George W. Bush delivered his harshest public criticisms to date against his successor on foreign policy, saying that President Barack Obama is being naïve about Iran and the pending nuclear deal and losing the war against the Islamic State.

One attendee at the Republican Jewish Coalition session, held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas with owner Sheldon Adelson in attendance, transcribed large portions of Bush’s remarks.

You do realize that if you would have left Saddam Hussein alone, and if your successor would leave Bashar Assad alone, there would be no ISIS, right?





Bully Gates Plays the Race Card

Washington, D.C.

Yes, it says “Arne Duncan,” but we all know who’s really behind it.

But:

The federal government is flexing its muscles to protect an allegedly state-run program. Liberals are treating other liberals like they’re racist. Even the teachers’ unions are calling Common Core’s rollout “botched” and walking back their “once-enthusiastic” support for the program. It looks like the education technocracy is every bit as ineffective as the rest of our national technocracies.

Don’t expect the teachers’ unions opposition to Commune Core to be some sort of inoculation against accusations of “racism.”  Didn’t you see Waiting for Superman?  Neoliberal/neoconservative “education reform” is the “civil rights issue of our time,” and “education reform” is needed because “bad” schools run by “bad” teachers and “protected” by “bad” and “powerful” (*) teachers’ unions are ubiquitous, and are ruining the lives of black babies’ bodies and inserting them into the mythical school-to-prison pipeline, where mythical anti-Semitic whisper campaigns surely reverberate.  If you roll all of this together, then you wind up with the sum of NEA/AFT = Bull Connor.  Therefore, politically hitching your wagon to teachers’ unions will not prevent you being accused of racism, but make it more likely.

(*) – Teachers’ unions are so “powerful” that the Chicago Teachers’ Union couldn’t even punch through Chicago and the mayor’s office.

More people applying for concealed carry permits throughout St. Louis area

(snip)

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department said the unrest in Ferguson contributed to the increase in applications. In 2014, the county had a total of 907 applications. In the first three months of 2015, more than 500 people have already applied.

If I was a lib and as snarky as I am, I would be writing this in this space:

“Ferguson, that noted city in Franklin County.”

Well, I’m not a lib, so I know that Franklin County is neither an autarky nor surrounded by electrified fences.

And also, as you have read here in recent weeks, there have been some strange Bellcurvian hijinks in Sullivan, most of which is in Franklin County.  Here, here and here.
