People Pay Attention

NYT responds on its double standards when it comes to the portrayal of religious figures:

And finally, the very different reactions bear this out. Hundreds of thousands of people protested worldwide, for instance, after the Danish cartoons were published some years ago. While some people might genuinely dislike this Milwaukee work, there doesn’t seem to be any comparable level of outrage.

This is a written confession that they’re scared of Muslims but not Christians, because Muslims use violence while Christians don’t.

It’s also an implicit admission of what I’ve been saying for awhile in this space, when it comes to Muslims and black rioters, that the people that matter in the Western world are communicating via their actions that violence and terrorism work.  And who recently received that message loud and clear?  A nutbar in Charleston, South Carolina.

Let Me Count the Hoaxes

Dixie

Much to the chagrin of the #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches crowd and the Southern Poverty Law Center, the very recent spate of black church fires in Dixie and the subsequent investigations by the ATF (of course) and probably also relevant local and state authorities have found:

1.  An arson without evidence of any suspects at a Charlotte church that is co-occupied by a black congregation and a Nepalese congregation.  (Nepalese in Charlotte?  Isn’t that news?)

2.  Vandalism at a black church in Knoxville (sticky-fingered ooks)

3.  A fire of undetermined origin in Warrensville, S.C., so we don’t even know if it was even arson

4.  A consequence of burglaries and vandalism at a black church in Macon, Georgia (more sticky-fingered ooks)

5.  Falling tree limbs bringing down and exposing electrical power wires started the fire at a black church in Tallahassee.  That’s called “shit happens.”

6.  Lightning struck the building of a black church in eastern Tennessee, setting that building on fire.  More “shit happens,” or rather, and to put it ironically, an Act of God.

The article does go into Historical Racism Porn to tell us about the 16th Street Church in Birmingham in September 1963 (more than 50 years ago), without mentioning that several of the “Kluxers” that did it were FBI informants.  Which means they did it to try to create a reason to pass the civil rights act that JFK called for on national TV just a few months before.  It also doesn’t tell us that the last wave of black church burning racial hoaxes, circa 1996, were found to be mostly people associated with those churches setting their own churches on fire for the insurance money.

Ferguson

DOJ still can’t unhook its jaw from the Ferguson PD:

A U.S. Department of Justice report summary obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says police responded to unrest in Ferguson in a way that antagonized crowds, violated free-speech rights and made it difficult to hold officers accountable.

One could look at it that way.  Or, one could look at it as the Ferguson PD and various cooperating agencies tried to prevent further rioting and looting.

 





Wicked Racial Profiling Trick

30 06 2015

Panama City, Florida

The article Drudge linked to about it was just text, no pics.  But the wicked racial profiling trick was still in full effect.

The suspect? Naturally.

I can find no pics of the victim, but with a name like Caleb Joshua Halley, and his obit stating that he took a four month sabbatical from his job to hike the Appalachian Trail, the odds are pretty close to 100% that he’s white.

Also, this sorta hits close to home:  He graduated from Florida State, where he was a Chief Osceola mascot for the sports teams, with a degree in accounting and finance.  Yet, he was working in food preparation at a seafood market and restaurant, because Orlando Thompson allegedly murdered Halley over an argument over how much to spice up some gumbo.  So here you go, just like your blogmeister, we have someone who graduated with an accounting degree who was probably blocked out of the accounting field because of H-1B.  Luckily for me, in lieu of permanent accounting jobs, I’ve had some decent gigs for the most part, one of which almost took me to another job in the United States Senate chamber, and thankfully none of which had me working around paragons of virtue like Orlando Thompson.  Mr. Halley, not so fortunate.
