We do not get involved in racial discourse except as relates to the demagoguery spewed by our politicians or appointed government officials. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has repeatedly and unequivocally demonstrated a very biased and reprehensible approach and attitude to race relations and justice with a pro-black, pro-minority preference specifically vis-à-vis Whites. Such an approach further engenders unprovoked violence by blacks on whites and other races
We saw this in Obama’s reckless and irresponsible involvement in the Cambridge police incident involving his belligerent (black) buddy Henry Louis Gates, Jr., professor of Black Studies at Harvard who falsely claimed racism.
We have seen this with Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder’s dismissal of charges of voter intimidation against the New Black Panthers in video documented evidence in Philadelphia during the Presidential election. Of course, they have refused to release any evidence or explanation of why there was such a dismissal even though the defendants were ready to plead guilty.
The Dept. of Justice under this same racist Eric Holder has been “instructed” not to pursue cases of racism if perpetrated by blacks on whites. However, they are to aggressively pursue cases if it whites were the alleged perpetrators. Insiders have revealed this to be the “culture of justice” of our own Justice Dept.
And of course, who can forget the vitriolic, racist ramblings and screed of Rev. Jeremiah Wright whose church Obama and Michelle attended for years. He never protested such despicable racist hatred and the black liberation theology that was espoused.
Furthermore, Obama was very close not just with Wright but also with Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam who is the quintessential vehemently anti-white, anti-semitic racist and who also preaches anti-American vitriol.
The list of examples of racism by the Obama Administration, his czars (Van Jones) and other appointees is nearly endless and entirely unacceptable.
Why are we bringing this up?
Obama is conveying and instigating by actions, incendiary rhetoric and legislation, an aggressive entitlement and superiority attitude for blacks over the “flawed” and “racist” whites that is spilling out into the African-American community, particularly the lower socioeconomic level. They do not see this as demagoguery but as “reality” and then channel this hateful energy into what they see as acceptable anger and actions aimed against whites. After all, “their” President seems to be doing the same – though not by violence.
There has been a spate of attacks by blacks on whites since Obama has been President. Most of these have seen little news coverage because they do not fit into the progressive media’s far left agenda of “showing” the “abused, downtrodden” blacks.
The following egregious incident (see video below) is an attack perpetrated by 2 black females on a white "female" inside a McDonalds in Baltimore and captured on video. At least some of the employees of the restaurant were black males and could have instantly stopped the beating but didn’t (one was actually took the video as seen below). The Caucasian girl, who happened to be a transsexual, was subjected to a prolonged, violent beating by these uncivilized hateful individuals including a head injury. It is not clear if this specifically was partially motivated by her being white or if there was any knowledge of her sexual orientation.
Outrageously, the local police dept. stated that it is “looking into this” to see whether there was any evidence that this was a hate crime (which the victim believes to be the case).
Are they kidding?
Despite several blacks present inside this McDonalds, it took an older white woman to help stop this.
We haven’t heard a word out of Obama about this. Or from Attorney General Eric Holder.
What about Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton?
You could be sure that if this were reversed with several Whites brutally abusing a black girl even if it wasn't patently motivated by race, there would already be rioting in the streets by blacks and claims of racism by Jackson and Sharpton. Holder would already have a Dept. of Justice investigation underway and the white “perpetrators” would have been already been convicted in the public forum.
This video is very graphic. See the two subsequent articles as well.
Shocking, Disturbing Restaurant Assault Vid: Woman Allegedly Beaten Into a Seizure As Employees Laugh
Jonathon M. Seidl April 22, 2011
When we post restaurant brawl videos, many times the tone centers around disbelief mixed with uneasy chuckles. What you’re about to see might result in audible screams, gasps, and expletives. Warning, it’s disturbing.
The details on the following attack are fuzzy.* What you see is two woman mercilessly attacking another in a McDonald’s. But that doesn’t really do the video justice. The two women repeatedly punch and kick the woman in the head while she lies in the fetal position on the ground. They then drag her across the floor by her hair near the door, where they continue the beating. All the while, the employees stand by laughing (although one seems to give a half-hearted vocal attempt to stop the madness, and another eventually tries to step in).
Eventually, it appears the woman is beaten so badly she has a seizure.
According to a description from the video site LiveLeak, the person filming the incident coaches the attackers to flee:
The two black females exit, then re-enter the store to continue the beating, until an older white woman attempts to stop them from dragging the white victim outside into the parking lot. note: the black male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack.
At the end, the white victim is beaten until she has a seizure, at which point the camera operator warns the black female attackers to flee, because the police are on the way. Note: he makes sure to repeatedly tell the criminal attackers to flee, instead of keeping them there for the police to apprehend.
Many of you have e-mailed asking for more information on this disturbing video. As is mentioned in the article, details are fuzzy right now. There is no word on where or when this occurred or what eventually happened to the attackers or the victim. As soon as we find anything out, we’ll let you know.
McDonald’s has responded to the video and says it occurred in Baltimore.
Video of beating in a Baltimore County McDonald's goes viral
Justin Fenton, The Baltimore Sun April 22, 2011
A video of a vicious beating at a Baltimore County McDonald's restaurant went viral Friday, garnering hundreds of thousands of views on various websites and prompting the fast food giant to issue a statement condemning the incident.
The video shows two women – one of them a 14-year-old girl – repeatedly kicking and punching the 22-year-old victim in the head, as an employee of the Rosedale restaurant and a patron try to intervene. Others can be heard laughing, and men appear to be standing idly by.
Toward the end of the video, one of the suspects lands a punishing blow to the victim's head, and she appears to have a seizure. A man's voice tells the women to run because police are coming.
The three-minute clip was apparently first posted on YouTube, then taken down by administrators who said it violated the site's policies. But it sprung back up on other sites and was ultimately linked from the popular Drudge Report, which gave it top billing for much of the day.
By mid-afternoon, the video had received 450,000 views on one site alone.
County police confirmed that the attack occurred April 18 in the 6300 block of Kenwood Ave. Police said the 14-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile, while charges were pending against an 18-year-old woman.
The victim suffered cuts to her mouth and face, and a police report said she was in "fair" condition.
The report classifies the attack as a "second degree assault" -- one of the suspects said that the fight was "with a woman over using a bathroom."
As the video spread online, McDonald's acknowledged that the attack had occurred in a Baltimore restaurant and said they were working with local police.
"We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling," the company said in a statement posted on its website. "Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and employees in our restaurants. We are working with the franchisee and the local authorities to investigate this matter."
State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger said the racial dynamics of the incident – the attackers are black, and the victim is white – could result in hate crime charges.
"We just received this case, and the police department is continuing their investigation," Shellenberger said. "If there is evidence that the crime was racially motivated, we will take a look at those charges and see if we meet those elements. We have the ability, if the facts are there, to upgrade the charges at a later date."
The video begins with two women near a bathroom door kicking and hitting a woman who is lying on the ground. Viewers from across the country expressed shock at the sheer brutality of the video, and the racial dynamics of the attack drove much of the commentary on the sites that posted the clip.
An employee repeatedly tries to separate them, but the attackers continue to stomp and kick the victim's head. People yell, "Stop! Stop!" to no avail, though others can be heard laughing. An older woman at one point also attempts to pull the attackers away, and is shoved.
About halfway through the three-minute clip, the attackers rip a wig off the victim and drag her by her hair to the front door. That is where the victim is sitting before a blow to the head causes an apparent seizure.
Throughout the attack, a man is filming and does not intervene. But when the victim appears to go into a seizure, he yells, "She having a seizure, yo. … Police on their way. Y'all better get out of here."
Through a McDonald's spokesman, the owner of the Rosedale restaurant released a statement. The chain said the owner and employees would not be made available for comment.
"I'm as shocked and disturbed by this incident as anyone would be. The behavior displayed in the video is unfathomable and reprehensible," said the franchise owner, Mitchell McPherson. "The safety of our customers is a top priority. We know the police were called immediately, and we are thoroughly investigating this matter."
The following scathing commentary by Lloyd Marcus, a fairly well known conservative and a spokesperson for the Tea Party who happens to be black, rebukes Obama on his unwarranted and irresponsible racist vitriol and overt divisiveness. The “president’s” relentless race based commentary is fomenting racial strife and antipathy, further dividing our nation. Whether this is being done partly to advance his socialist agenda is not entirely clear.
Regardless, this speaks volumes of a man who has shown himself to be evil, racist, criminal, tyrannical and narcissistic (and much more or is that less?).
Obama Calling Tea Party Racist Reveals A Far More Disturbing Reality
Lloyd Marcus March 10, 2011
Please consider the validity of what I am about to say rather than having a knee jerk reaction dismissing it as being "over the top." Folks, we have an irresponsible egocentric evil man occupying the Oval Office.
The Democrats and the liberal mainstream media sold the American people on Obama, "the man." Despite Obama's zero experience at running anything, they said a leader with his spirit and heart was "what we have been waiting for".
Fearful of criticizing our first black president, politicians politely say, "President Obama's policies have been unfruitful," while ignoring the huge elephant in America's living room.
The elephant of which I speak and America's major problem is "Obama, the man"; socialist, divisive and evil.
My dad says a snake can stay under water a very long time just like a fish. But eventually, it must come up for air. Why? Because, it is not a fish. It is a snake. Obama continues to come up for air revealing his true self.
President Obama said the Tea Party is racist. That's the unmistakable meaning of his statement that race is a "key component" of Tea Party protests. The liberal media, NAACP and Democrats have been relentlessly promoting this same baseless allegation. When final confirmation comes down from the highest office in the land, the Oval Office, that the Tea Party is racist; the allegation becomes "official" in the minds of millions. President Obama is slandering millions of decent hard working Americans who simply disagree with his progressive/socialist agenda.
Think of the repercussions. Obama's indictment of the Tea Party will birth tremendous racial discord across America in schools, churches, and civic life. Obama's proclamation will cause Americans to double down on their already extreme caution when criticizing our black president. Sadly, I suspect such intimidation is a part of Obama's plan; anything to empower his mission to "fundamentally transform America."
Make no mistake about it, Obama and company have successfully intimidated many white Americans into not dissing the black president in public.
I stopped in a fast food restaurant for a burger. Around fifteen white seniors were having lunch. I overheard them ranting about Obama's overreaches and socialist policies. Upon seeing me, a black man, they became silent. I was tempted to say, "Please continue, I whole-heartedly agree with you!" Too bad they did not notice my Tea Party Express t-shirt.
Barack Hussein Obama received more votes than any other presidential candidate in American history. So Obama alleging millions of Tea Party patriots are simply upset because America elected a black president is disingenuous, absurd and manipulative.
Obama is exploiting his race and sacrificing national race relations solely to implement his progressive/socialist agenda. Callously and strategically, the President of the United States is pitting millions of black and white Americans against each other. Lord help us, that is pure evil.
Quoting deceased make-up legend, Mary Kay, "Leadership spreads from the top down."
A fine black young adult whom I have known for years has always appeared to be racially color blind. He idolizes Obama. Suddenly, I have noticed this kid beginning to view everything through a racial lens. His latest absurd statement, "Friends" is a racist TV show because there are no black cast members."
While I admit this example is anecdotal, I suspect Obama's divisiveness is inspiring millions of Americans to choose sides along racial lines.
Before knowing the facts, Obama immediately assumed the white police officer was guilty of racial profiling in the Professor Gates case. This suggests Obama has racial emotional baggage. Such a luxury cannot be afforded the president of "all Americans."
Obama is not who most Americans thought he was and is exactly who the liberal mainstream media hoped he would be: their Great Black Hope for implementing their progressive/socialist agenda.
They will do whatever it takes to protect Obama; ignoring his character flaws, lawlessness, deceptions and lies. If Obama says two plus two equals five, the liberal media will defend it as being the "New Math." We cannot trust the liberal media to tell us the truth regarding Obama.
Obama's inauguration brought tears to the eyes of millions of Americans. Blacks are only 12% of our nation's population, which means it took many million white votes to put Obama in the Oval Office. Thus, most of the American tears of joy were white.
President Obama is fully aware of this truth.
Obama willfully dividing Americans by exploiting his race for political gain is a despicable betrayal of the whites who elected him. But even more disturbing, it reveals the true character of the man running our country. America deserves much, much better.

Confessions of a Black Conservative, written by Lloyd Marcus & foreword by Michelle Malkin

Join Lloyd Marcus Facebook Page
With the insidious infusion of affirmative action and victimization ideology into government policy and law and then collaterally into many areas of the private sector, a rampant state of oppression and discrimination has manifested itself. And it continues to noxiously grow.
What are we talking about?
It is discrimination against the white male of the heterosexual variety.
Over time there has been a plethora of discriminating set asides, quotas and other diversity preferences for jobs, schooling, loans, housing, etc.: first for blacks, then other minorities; then women; followed by gay and lesbians and then transgendered. The only group left out of these unconstitutional preferences and the one bearing the full brunt of these institutionalized practices is the straight white male.
This is a reprehensible situation that should not be allowed to persist or exist. It is far more pervasive and discriminatory than most people realize.
The costs of these policies are extremely high, both to the victims and to society. Ultimately we all benefit when the person selected for a position, job or admissions to school is the best one and not the one of politically correct color, religion, sex or sexual preference.
The White Man's Burden
Robin of Berkeley March 09, 2011
I was just filling out an application to be a provider for an insurance panel. And one of the questions they ask is, "Are you a GLBT-owned business?"
GLBT means gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered. I rolled my eyes when I saw this. I thought, "So, if I share my bed with a woman, I would be a superior therapist, a more desirable member of your insurance panel?"
Of course, the questionnaire also asked whether I were a minority- or female-owned business. Apparently, if I were an Asian woman who sleeps with other women, I would be a Most Valuable Player in the psychotherapy world.
What also occurred to me while filling out the application is that every special category exists aside from that of a white, straight male. If someone is gay or a woman or a person of color, the welcome mat is laid out. But what about an ordinary Joe, a working-class stiff from Toledo?
How does he get into college when all the recruitment efforts are aimed at others? And if he does get in, how does he afford it -- especially now, with Obama at the helm?
I heard a while back that ObamaCare snuck a backdoor scheme into ObamaCare, for the government to make student loans, not the banks. If this happens, you better believe that the money will be shelled out based on "social and economic justice."
Some young men turn to the military as a way of accessing needed funds for college. What are the consequences?
They are, in fact, grave: white, working class men are at much higher risk of being mortally wounded in the battleground than their privileged counterparts. And while the working class risk their lives, the snooty elite go to college on daddy's dime.
So let's put the pieces together here: everyone aside from a white, straight guy can obtain all sorts of special help in the form of jobs, financial aid, and college enrollment. On top of this, there are scholarships and grants galore for most people, aside from white males. (There are even college scholarships for illegals.)
But a white guy -- even one with who is broke -- gets very little. He may choose to join the Army instead, and possibly be seriously injured.
What is wrong with this picture?
Of course, I really shouldn't talk since I helped create the mess we're in. As a feminist, I spent much of my youth marching for women's rights. I have expended countless hours complaining about inequities toward women.
But I have seen the light. I now realize that we've created a monster with so many people wailing about sexism and racism and all the other "isms."
After decades of grievances, we haven't turned into a fairer nation; we're simply an angrier one. In the age of Obama, aggrieved groups have joined together to demand their rights, endeavoring to put the white man under their thumb.
Now men are marginalized and demonized. They are given the demoralizing message that they are unnecessary. Of course, this message is fallacious.
The United States would cease to operate if conservative white males went on strike tomorrow (not necessarily a bad idea, by the way). We'd do just fine shorn of most of the metrosexual crowd -- the college professors and the activists. But we'd crash and burn without the manly man. It's he who does the essential work that others cannot, like patrol our streets, extinguish fires, and drive tractors.
As a former progressive, I know how tempting it is to blame others for our own problems. It's easier to implicate the "system" or the Man than to take a good and hard look in the mirror.
But this life is not about "getting mine;" it's about what we have to offer the world. It's about living with dignity and honor, not a thirst for revenge.
Life is not fair; it is not supposed to be fair. Someone, somewhere will always have more, while others will have less. Disappointment is hard-wired into this human realm; and this is just as true for the white man as the person of color.
The Buddha put it this way, that life is composed of the "l0,000 joys and the l0,000 sorrows." We grow old, we get sick, and, one day, we and our bodies will perish.
And when that day happens, we won't take anything with us except for our character -- or lack of it. And there are no amount of laws or affirmative action programs that can change the way the world works.

The first two lines of this editorial says it all:
“Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. should resign. He is a disgrace to his office and to his country.”
We have taken this position long ago as have many others - given his unequivocally racist positions, policies and actions and in spite of the fact that he is the top official in this country charged with enforcing equal rights and justice for all. As the Attorney General and head of the Dept. of Justice, his egregious violations warrant immediate firing from his position.
Unfortunately, his boss, “president” Obama subscribes to the same black liberation theology and sanctions these racist policies.
How about a two-fer?
Eric Holder’s liberal racism Attorney general reveals he is color-conscious, not colorblind
Jeffrey T. Kuhner The Washington Times March 3, 2011
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. should resign. He is a disgrace to his office and to his country.
Mr. Holder is a race baiter. On Tuesday, he testified during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the voting rights case involving members of the New Black Panther Party. In the 2008 election, Black Panthers - dressed in military fatigues and wielding a club - threatened voters at a Philadelphia polling station. They denounced the voters as "crackers" and vowed those voters would not be allowed to help defeat then-candidate Barack Obama. Their goal was to bully and intimidate. This was a clear case of violation of voting rights. Such behavior may occur with impunity in banana republics - not in the world's leading democracy.
Rep. John Culberson, Texas Republican, confronted the attorney general, demanding to know why the Justice Department refused to prosecute the Black Panthers - especially considering they were caught making the menacing gestures on tape. Mr. Holder shamelessly played the race card. He claimed to take offense at comments by civil rights activist Bartle Bull, who called it the most serious example of voter intimidation he had ever seen at the polls.
"When you compare what people endured in the South in the '60s to try to get the right to vote for African-Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia ... to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people," Mr. Holder said.
Excuse me - his "people"? This is one of the most outrageous - and divisive - statements by a senior government official in recent memory. His people are and should be the American people - all of us.
Mr. Holder is the nation's top law enforcement officer. His duty is to uphold the law and apply it fairly and equally to everyone - regardless of race. In other words, his job demands that he be colorblind. By his own words, he has shown he is unfit for the position. He is a racial tribalist - race trumps justice. When he talks about his people, Mr. Holder sounds like the grand wizard of a black Ku Klux Klan.
This is not the first time Mr. Holder has made offensive racial comments. In 2009, he claimed that when it comes to discussing race, Americans are "a nation of cowards." He said in a 1996 interview with The Washington Post that regardless of how "affluent, educated and mobile" a black person becomes, "his race defines him more particularly than anything else." In other words, according to Mr. Holder, no matter how successful and integrated blacks are in U.S. society, they will always be victims; racial solidarity must supersede their American identity.
Mr. Holder is deliberately evading questions about the Black Panther case. He is guilty of nixing an investigation into blatant voter intimidation because the culprits were black - and the victims white. He refuses to answer questions directly or release documents about the decision-making process that led the Justice Department to drop much of the case. In particular, he refuses to answer whether Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes instructed her subordinates to pursue only civil rights investigations involving victims who are black. Mr. Holderis stonewalling in a desperate attempt to cover up his race-based policies.
Mr. Holder is a product of the 1960s. He embodies radical chic, the belief that America is based on racial domination and capitalist exploitation. The reason he refuses to go after the New Black Panthers is that he largely shares their worldview. The original Black Panthers were fascists. They championed black nationalism, racial supremacy and economic collectivism. Their aim was the violent overthrow of the "white power structure." In short, they were the very opposite of Martin Luther King Jr., who espoused nonviolence, assimilation and the creation of a truly colorblind society.
Since the late 1960s, however, black racial separatism has been growing. The New Black Panthers are the direct descendants of it, as are Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They are race baiters who seek to erect an ethnic spoils system that will balkanize America. Mr. Holder is a polished version of Mr. Sharpton. Despite the fancy suits and lawyerly demeanor, Mr. Holder embraces the same destructive ideas: black nationalism, anti-Americanism, state socialism, support for affirmative action and racial quotas, and the politics of grievance and victimology.
The attorney general insists on making false - and inflammatory - comparisons to the civil rights movement. No one is saying that the Black Panther case is akin to segregation in the South or that whites are systematically being denied the right to vote. Rather, the New Black Panthers are thugs. Their actions represented a fundamental assault on our democracy.
When it comes to America's mortal enemies - such as Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 - Mr. Holder goes out of his way to defend their rights. This includes supporting efforts to have Mohammed tried in a civilian court. Hence, Mr. Holder thinks jihadists are entitled to full constitutional protections while peaceful, law-abiding Americans exercising their God-given right to vote are not - especially if they are white and possibly pro-Republican.
Mr. Holder lacks the character or competence to be attorney general. He has abused his office and violated his sacred oath. Like other practitioners of racial politics - white, black and Latino - Mr. Holder acts as if everything begins and ends with race. This is a form of intellectual and moral corruption that threatens the very long-term unity of America. This kind of black nationalism is poisonous to the nation's bloodstream. It is divisive, destructive and dangerous. And it is why Mr. Holder must go.
The following editorial examines the true racist nature of the Obama Administration which had touted itself as post-racial and forward looking. What we have been encumbered with is a nightmare conflation of liberal bean counting and black liberation theology promoting black dominance, unequal rights, retribution, race wealth transfer to minorities and naked demagoguery and contemptuousness.
All with the blessings of the “man” who was to bring us into a new age.
The View from Crackerland
Robert T. Smith March 07, 2011
Certainly the recent vexation expressed by Eric Holder over being questioned regarding the New Black Panther voter intimidation case -- i.e., his defense of "my people" -- depicts a new low in race relations here in America. The liberal media and many politicians are curiously not outraged at what is an arguably race-based federal civil rights case.
We were told of a post-racial era that all Americans would enjoy as the outcome of the election of America's first African-American president. As so eloquently described by one of Mr. Holder's people, this post-racial era is not so evident in the view from here in Crackerland.
Post-election of President Obama, the only racial agreement apparent to those of us who reside in Crackerland was Eric Holder's admonition that we are cowards to not discuss awkward racial issues here in America. Here, then, is an offering to contribute to the discussion.
Here in Crackerland, there was some consternation when we noticed then-presidential candidate Obama's unique past and the unusual relationships he had throughout his life. There seemed to be an underlying racial anger and confusion as a mixed-race person in his autobiography Dreams from My Father. An example is Mr. Obama's being so moved by the notion that "white folks' greed runs a world in need."
Mr. Obama's long-term black liberation theology minister and mentor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, represents many other African-American religious leaders. These leaders have perspectives and sermons that seem to be a whole lot more about justifying their racism than supporting Christian theology itself. There is an apparent seemless link between black liberation theology and the racist, bigoted radicals in the Nation of Islam and among the New Black Panthers. Our view from Crackerland was of Mr. Obama as a relatively unknown politician infused with an adult life of racist relationships and thoughts.
Here in Crackerland, we noticed an almost 100% voting rate for Mr. Obama from the African-American community. Difficult to miss were the many formerly non-Democrat African-American persons who stated their support for Mr. Obama based solely on his color -- a clearly racist vote.
As viewed from Crackerland, this affiliation between the Democratic Party and the African-American community appears to be based on the promise that the Democrat politicians will provide for the living conditions desired by the African-American community. The individualism of Crackerland recognizes these government-supplied conditions as dehumanizing, reducing people to veritable chattel of the government. Human chattel of the government is not a condition we crackers wish upon any person, irrespective of race.
Here in Crackerland, we took note that Mr. Obama was elected by both cracker and non-cracker alike. However, it didn't take long for the signs of racism to appear in association with our new president.
The invocation by Reverend Lowery at Mr. Obama's swearing in ceremony seemed a bit inappropriate for such an auspicious, racially historic occasion. The Reverend Lowery was intent on bringing racial issues to the forefront, and he used the occasion and captive audience to vent his lingering racism by means of a recitation of hopes for the various non-white races while admonishing those who are white to embrace what is right. This appeared here in Crackerland to imply that whites somehow had prevented and/or are preventing the other races from achieving their desired hopes -- a racist lie.
The history of America we learned here in Crackerland included hundreds of thousands of dead crackers in the Civil War, decades of cracker-led civil rights struggles, an altering of the very foundation of America's Constitution and laws facilitated by the crackers, and billions and probably trillions of cracker dollars poured into the non-cracker communities -- all of which was only incidental in the Reverend Lowery's mind to doing what is right. Arguably, the view from Crackerland was that the Reverend Lowery outed himself as a racist and perhaps a bigot while serving as an integral part of Mr. Obama's historic day for race relations in America.
Here in Crackerland, we pursue happiness for ourselves and our families' benefit, because self and family are the basic building blocks of society. In Crackerland, we set a lofty ideal in our founding documents and celebrate unalienable rights for all men, endowed by our Creator and not arbitrarily assigned by government officials based on race. We inhabitants of Crackerland don't wake up thinking about how to stick it to other Americans, cracker or non-cracker; we work for ours and expect you to work for yours.
We crackers see our pursuit of happiness realized as the property, money, land, and all other possessions we work hard for, and not as community property to be confiscated by government officials and dispensed to others based on racial status and conditions. The relationship between redistributive socialism and black liberation theology in which President Obama has been steeped and which he has embraced in his policy decisions is viewed by us here in Crackerland as both racist and the antithesis of Americanism.
The racism we see from Crackerland in our current Obama administration, those surrounding the administration, and those who support it looks a whole lot more like retribution than like a brave discourse on race relations here in America. We were told of a post-racial era that all Americans would enjoy as the outcome of the election of America's first African-American president, but that is not so evident to many of us here in Crackerland.
Cowards, as Mr. Holder so ineloquently characterized them, should step aside so that this discussion will not have to be absurdly carried on into posterity. With slavery and civil rights issues distant in the rearview mirror of America's history, the changes in our social structure over time, and the integration of all Americans into all portions of our society regardless of race, this black/white race discussion is now bizarre within the context of racial reparations. It can be viewed now only as a purely political power play.
The corrupt and coercive actions of the Obama Administration know no limits. Exacerbating this egregious situation is the negligence and patent complicity of the news media in its lack of reportage on any of these issues. By not getting called out and criticized publically, Obama and his elitist, racist and radical cronies have no disincentive to cease these activities.
The story below, written by an attorney who had worked in the Justice Dept. under Holder and was intimately acquainted with policies and culture, details Attorney General Eric Holder’s brazen arrogance and tampering with the New Black Panther Investigation as well his threats to those in the Dept. who refuse to toe his “policies”.
Holder Uses New York Times to Tamper with New Black Panther Investigation
J. Christian Adams
Attorney General Eric Holder recently made statements to the New York Times so detached from reality that they could have been written by scheming Republican operatives for fun. In particular, Holder tells the Times that the lawless dismissal of voter intimidation charges against the New Black Panthers is “a made up controversy.” I have written about Holder’s accelerating detachment from reality in the interview, along with Jen Rubin.
Putting aside the fact video exists of the armed uniformed thugs in Philadelphia, Holder did something even worse than flirt with kooky conspiratorial characterizations of the fallout from the Black Panther dismissal.
When Holder announced to the New York Times that there “is no there there,” he let the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) know what he believes the outcome of their ongoing investigation into the dismissal should be. In other words, he tampered with their investigation.
Holder’s close friend Deputy Attorney General James Cole will have the power to veto any critical conclusions by OPR.
Multiple attorneys, including me, have testified under oath that the Obama Civil Rights Division will not enforce civil rights laws in a race-neutral fashion. Numerous attorneys still at the Justice Department have confirmed the substance of our testimony to the Washington Post. Numerous other attorneys no longer at the Justice Department have also confirmed our testimony.
Holder’s response to the New York Times? It’s a “made up controversy.”
Holder’s performance to the New York Times is more than simply ludicrous, it is meddlesome. When Holder made these partisan campaign-style attacks, he meddled with two ongoing investigations in a way that previous Attorney Generals would never do.
The DOJ OPR is currently investigating whether or not Steve Rosenbaum, Loretta King, and other DOJ political appointees used improper considerations when they ordered the dismissal of the New Black Panther case.
The problem is that Eric Holder sits atop the chain of command for every OPR attorney working on the investigation. Eric Holder, and his newly recess-appointed Deputy Attorney General James Cole, oversee OPR.
They have the power to fire, and as was recently exercised, hire the head of OPR. The incoming head of OPR, Robin Ashton, was just named by Holder. Ashton will have the power to tamper with any findings in the New Black Panther investigation, and bring them more in line with Eric Holder’s pronouncements to the New York Times.
When Holder made wild assertions about the dismissal of the New Black Panther case to the New York Times, you can be sure every single person working down the chain of command on the investigation took note. For them to reach a finding contrary to Holder’s statements guarantees a bureaucratic headwind from the highest levels of the DOJ. That’s a career killer inside Justice. Few can be expected to have the courage to confront the falsehoods of an Attorney General from within the bureaucracy. There aren’t many with the courage of DOJ lawyer Christopher Coates.
The DOJ Inspector General is also investigating the circumstances surrounding the dismissal of the New Black Panther case and hostility toward racially equal enforcement of civil rights laws under Eric Holder. I have already given lengthy interviews with the IG about this hostility, as have many others.
Yet Eric Holder has announced his opinion of the investigation in the interview. The IG is just looking into “a made up controversy,” he says.
America might soon long for the good old days of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. When the DOJ OPR and IG were investigating conduct during his tenure, he had the sense and integrity to withhold comment.
Instead of telegraphing his views to the investigative authorities as Holder did, Gonzales made it clear it wouldn’t be appropriate to comment while an investigation was ongoing.
Holder doesn’t care even about the appearance of impropriety. He plainly let the investigators inside OPR and the IG know what he thinks they should conclude.
Worse, Holder almost taunts the majority of Americans who believe men wielding weapons at the entrance to a poll and hurling racial slurs is a serious matter, no matter the race of the perpetrators. All “made up,” he shockingly concludes, providing sanctuary to armed thugs from the highest levels of our government.
Michelle Obama is innately greedy, egocentric, arrogant and disdainful individual whose sense of entitlement seems to have emanated out of her racist and intolerant philosophies which is manifestly evident in her comments. It is a noisome attitude which has been injected, encouraged and constantly nourished in the black community by demagogues such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for their selfish purposes of power and control over what they falsely claim as a monolithic group.
Teh "Emper-ass" Michelle's behavior is inexcusable, counterproductive and as disclosed in the incident below, wasteful.
Instead of waiting another day or two for Barack Obama and then flying together back to Hawaii, Michelle just had to begin her vacation sooner. The purported cost for this excursion as cited below was $63,000 but this number probably wildly underestimates the true costs given all that is involved (security, etc.). Such an action in the milieu of a deep and protracted recession screams high decibel disrespect at the millions of Americans who are unemployed and suffering as well as to the taxpayers who once again are forced to pay for her profligate, unwarranted costs and expenditures. This whole action is exacerbated by the entitlement attitude that she exudes.
Now if this was a one way trip for her, then it would have been tax dollars well spent!
FLOTUS chows at the taxpayers' trough
By Cheri Jacobus 12/23/10
First lady Michelle Obama didn't feel like waiting around cold, boring old Washington, D.C., for her husband and Congress to wrap up their work for the year. So she simply stuck the taxpayers with the $63,000 tab to start her Hawaiian vacation a bit early — just a few short months after the Spain vacation with her gal-pals that set us all back a pretty penny.
With her husband announcing a two-year pay freeze for federal employees as a way to save taxpayers a few precious dollars, it's jaw-dropping that Michelle Obama could be so relentlessly politically tone-deaf. And insensitive. And even a tad bit selfish, spoiled and thoughtless, perhaps? I tend to cringe when folks gratuitously slam the first lady simply because they don't like her husband's policies, but this latest antic on the part of Michelle Obama really takes the cake.
The FLOTUS spending our tax dollars on herself makes Nancy Reagan using private donations for expensive White House dinner china for entertaining heads of state on behalf of the nation seem like pretty small potatoes.
In the future, it would be advisable for Michelle Obama to either pay for her Paris Hilton-style globetrotting herself, or to fund it with private donations. Meanwhile, we can all spend a few minutes trying to calculate how many federal employees' pay raises it takes to pay for Mrs. Obama to get an extra day or two of fun in the sun in Hawaii.
Attorney General Eric Holder has brought the regard, presitge and position that he holds to a new, immeasurably low level. This is an amazing feat given that the honor had been previously held by the abysmally incompetent Janet Reno. In fact, his job performance, or lack thereof, makes her accomplishments and management appear respectable.
Holder shows a total lack of understanding and appreciation of his position, responsibilities and the U.S. Constitution which he is charged with adhering to. In fact, he openly and egregiously flouts the basic principles of this document which he clearly despises and finds it to be an obstacle to his Progressive and racist agenda.
On innumerably occasions, he has displayed a lack of regard for equal rights and treatments. Some, minorities and especially blacks in particular, he feels should be accorded greater rights, privileges and entitlements especially at the expense of others, notably whites. The racist bias that has suffused the Dept. of Justice under his watch and which has been countenanced by him, are well known (see The New Black Panther Party issue as but one example).
He also panders to special interest groups and those that are openly hostile to our country and intolerant of our culture. His actions seem to be intentionally aimed at undermining and weakening America – an agenda that is consistent with a far left Progressive. In his view, rights are not truly equal – the Constitution be damned.
We staunchly and relentlessly continue to call for either his resignation or firing which would be in the best interests of this country and its citizens.
Holder's Dept. Of (Social) Justice
Investor’s Business Daily 12/15/2010
Politics: This Justice Department's social activism knows no bounds. First it meddled in a border state's right to protect itself.
Now it's trying to rewrite school policy to pander to Muslim law.
On Monday, Justice sued an Illinois school district for rejecting a Muslim teacher's request to take a three-week leave of absence to travel to Mecca. The suit claims that the Berkeley School District discriminated against middle-school instructor Safoorah Khan, whose religion "required" her to perform the hajj, and is seeking damages for this so-called victim.
But it's not stopping there. It seeks an order mandating school officials adopt policies accommodating all Muslim customs, no matter how unreasonable.
Attorney General Eric Holder is fulfilling a promise to pander to the special interests of Muslims. In June 2009, he pledged "a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community" that includes "robust enforcement" of "religious freedoms."
"We are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans" in the workplace, housing market and schools, he said, adding that he was making it "a top priority."
Earlier this month, Holder spoke in San Francisco at the annual dinner of an anti-FBI group called the Muslim Advocates, whom he described as "partners in our work to promote tolerance."
He told Muslims gathered there that all 94 U.S. attorney's offices were partnering with the department's Civil Rights Division to act as "force multipliers" in helping to protect the Muslim community. He informed them that he'd brought a third of the nation's U.S. attorneys to Washington for an unprecedented meeting to work on being more "sensitive" toward Muslims.
"Last year," moreover, "I established an Arab-American and Muslim Engagement Advisory Group to help identify more effective ways for the Justice Department to foster greater communication and collaboration — as well as a new level of respect and understanding — between law enforcement and Muslim and Arab-American communities," Holder said.
This attorney general's many speeches reveal an agenda more radical than even his mentor Janet Reno's. It's plain that he's an activist, not an impartial enforcer of the nation's laws.
His audiences are a who's who of progressive causes — all sharing a common goal of obtaining "social justice" and "economic justice," as opposed to just plain equal justice under the law. They include activists not just for Muslim and Arab rights, but also black civil rights, gay rights, transgender rights, Indian tribal rights, housing rights, and on and on. It's a multicultural panderfest.
Here's just a sampling of his speaking engagements over the past two years:
• National Indian Nations Conference.
• African Union Summit.
• Metropolitan Black Bar Association Annual Dinner.
• Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month Program.
• American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee 30th Annual National Convention.
• Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) 50th Annual Conference.
• Legal Services Corp.
• Federal Bar Association's Advancement of Social Justice.
• National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives.
• Hispanic National Bar Association Annual Conference.
• National Black Prosecutors Association.
• Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice & Congressional Black Caucus Symposium on Rethinking Federal Sentencing Policy.
Divide-and-pander groupism is the new normal at Justice. At Justice's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month Program last June, Holder announced — in addition to enforcement of special new rights for gays — a new "Diversity Management Plan" that includes the creation of a new department position: Deputy Associate Attorney General for Diversity.
Holder's obsession with race was laid bare in his 2009 Black History Month speech in which he called Americans "cowards" for not doing more to speak out against racism. The disconnect of bad-mouthing America as racist in the wake of its electing a black president (and his own appointment as the first black attorney general) was lost on him.
Still, he slammed "socially segregated" whites who live in "electronically padlocked suburbs" and schools that are "too willing to segregate the study of black history."
"We must endeavor to integrate black history into our culture and into our curriculums in ways in which it has never occurred before," he lectured, giving it equal weight with "so-called 'real' American history."
Such demagoguery explains why, over the past 22 months, Justice has "reinvigorated" its civil rights enforcement activities. When it comes to combating hate crimes, however, it's still a one-way street.
"Our message is simple: If you engage in violence fueled by bigotry — no matter the object or nature of your hate — we will bring you to justice," Holder claims. Unless, of course you're club-wielding New Black Panthers and the object of your hate is white voters.
In the following article, James Lewis theorizes that the Obama’s somewhat publicly “indifferent” position on the intimate searches by TSA agents is his way of implementing “Black Revenge” on the masses of largely white people. Interestingly, because of affirmative action, a disproportionate of the agents are black.
The theory, which is a very interesting one, is well supported by evidence including his attitude and previous incidents and actions. Obama has clearly not been race neutral. His actions are one of a very racist, anti-White bigot. They are inexcusable and should not be tolerated.
Though not mentioned directly in the article, Obama’s patent racist views are evidenced, for example, by his greater than 10 year association and close relationship with and acceptance of the racist hate-mongerer Rev. Jeremiah Wright, reverence for Louis Farrakhan, and support for Attorney Eric Holder and his pro-black/ anti-white discriminatory actions within the Dept. of Justice
TSA Groping and Obama's Black Revenge Narrative
James Lewis 11-25-2010
The growing TSA groping scandal is another Obama political fiasco, almost a comical way for an American president to commit political suicide. TSA's groping of little kids and their moms instead of going for the bad guys who blew up the Twin Towers fits the narrative of radical black revenge. Now all the rich white folks are treated as police suspects. Let's see how they like it! Or as the hippies used to say, "Up against the wall, m-f!"
The cops are the traditional target of radical Left scapegoating, and even more so for Black Leftists. Obama showed it when Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., himself a racial demagogue, was stopped by an interracial team of cops while breaking and entering into his own house at night. Gates immediately cried "police brutality!," and Obama immediately fell into line. Stupidly, in public. Obama paid a political price for that knee-jerk reaction, but he did not learn from it.
Gates is director of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard, where they dig out new and ever more outrageous reasons to be mad at white folks. It's their version of "research." DuBois was a Communist during the Stalin years, and he was surely well-known to Frank Marshall Davis, Obama's surrogate father in Hawaii.
So Obama hates the cops, even the ones who risk their lives to protect black communities all over the country. In the TSA he has found his perfect instrument of symbolic revenge. If you remember how Hillary Rodham Clinton treated men in uniform at the White House, no matter what the uniform was, you'll get the idea.
Now everybody who flies over Thanksgiving, the quintessential American family holiday, will be dissed by uniformed cops, many of them black, because affirmative action rules the roost at the TSA. If you don't get the role-reversal joke, you're not listening to Obama.
You can bet your last dollar that Rev. Jerry Wright gets the joke. So do Louis Farrakhan; Father Pfleger, the Catholic race-monger; and everybody except Justice Clarence Thomas and Congressman Alan West, who are not laughing. Actually, they get it, too, but it looks more like tragedy than comedy to them. (Colin Powell, as usual, has gone missing in this one.)
The revenge narrative is central to Obama's personal identity, a lot of which is purely imaginary. Don't forget that he is living Dreams from My Father -- not the reality of his father, because he never knew his father at all.
When Obama bowed low for the international cameras to the King of Saudi and then dissed the Queen of England, it made no sense to Americans. But it makes perfect sense in Obama's narrative of revenge. The swarthy King Abdullah in the racial revenge narrative stands for the despised third world. The fact that Africa was raided for centuries by Arab slave raiders, and the fact that the Quran legitimates abject slavery, has no bearing on Obama's revenge fantasy, because facts don't matter in the world of fantasy. Queen Elizabeth is not a human being, but just the white symbol of British Imperialism. The pre-medieval King of Saudi, a generation away from camel-riding tent-dwellers, stands for the Wretched of the Earth. It's all part of the revenge fiction of the Left.
Obama lives in a world of good and evil. The White Hats are evil, the Black Hats good in this Western B flick.
As usual, the world of psychiatry has a name for this. It's called "splitting," and it's one of the common features of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, which we know Obama suffers from. Splitting is the tendency to treat others as either all good or all evil. It's a sort of paranoid feature of NPD. Obama has NPD mixed with oppositional-defiant disorder, which is why he actually gives his opponents the fickle finger of fate, right in public where the press can take the pictures. Perhaps Obama is cursed with paranoid thinking; we don't really know. He might be fragile. We know he becomes painfully bored when he is not taking a victory lap, and that is also diagnostic of NPD.
But Obama's inner circle know all that, because they've seen it, especially when Obama's fantasy world runs into reality. That's why Obama had to try to make nice to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for two whole years before figuring out what everybody else has known for thirty. French President Sarkozy has called Obama "aliené," which means "alienated from reality." I hope that's not true, but you can be sure that every intelligence agency and foreign ministry in the world has brought in squads of psychiatrists to figure it out. At the last summit meeting, even the European socialists rebelled against Obama's loose money policy. Two years ago, they would have worshiped at his feet.
That may be why David Axelrod got out of the White House lickety-split when he realized American voters were catching on. So did Rahm Emmanuel. Michelle Obama seems strangely distant these days, going on separate vacations, and only Valerie Jarrett hangs on in the inner circle to protect the Emperor. Obama has become Richard Nixon.
Barack Obama is neither complex nor sophisticated. He is a very simple man, so simple that Americans can't figure him out, because we are always fooled by his Harvard Law School act. The liberals confuse vocabulary with intelligence. The one is not the other. Obama believes he is what Ken Hamblin only played as a joke on talk radio: the Black Avenger.
This is not because Obama has ever lost a penny by being black, or half-black, but because in his imagination, growing up, he identified with the narrative of third-world revenge. That's what he heard from his Marxist professors all through college. You can read all about it in The Wretched of the Earth, the classic and phony tale of another imagineer, Frantz Fanon.
In Asia and Europe, Frantz Fanon's "wretched of the earth" are now beginning to prosper, since they threw out Marxist socialists. India, China, South Korea, and Eastern Europe are doing well. Africa is still suffering from the likes of Mugabe.
But the revenge narrative of Marxism is still taught in American colleges and universities, and at Harvard Law, it is taken for gospel. In all the reality-challenged ivory towers of academe, they are still hoping that it's 1917, and the Romanovs are about to be shot by Lenin in a basement.
The Black Avenger is a childlike revenge fantasy, but Obama is a very childlike man. Don't forget his long history of abandonment, first by his father when he was a baby, and soon after by his mother in middle childhood. Barry Soetoro suffered from multiple estrangements as he was bundled from Hawaii to Indonesia and then back again, while Mom stayed with her second husband in Jakarta. If you think that being abandoned hurts when you're an adult, just think about how it feels to a lost and lonely child.
It seems that Obama created a fantasy self out of childlike materials. His fantasy fitted the one held by his Left-wing mentors, who did not love him for being himself. They loved him because he fulfilled their wish for another Lenin to arise and reverse all the humiliations of America's rejection of communism.
The Left has put communism into a racial context by turning class warfare into race warfare. Or haven't you noticed? What else do you think affirmative action is about? It is the Left's revenge, by exploiting the most vulnerable group they could find: American blacks. American workers are too happy with prosperity. You need a really embittered group of people to empower the Left, and if the members of that group aren't mad enough, you make them madder and madder. Peace and love don't empower the Left. Racial rage and scapegoating does.
It should be said that personality disorders are not technically forms of madness. These are character flaws so prominent that they get people into bad trouble. Character flaws are not incompatible with understanding reality. People like Obama are not unusual, and sometimes they do well in real life. Hollywood is rife with narcissists, and so is Manhattan. Washington, D.C. wouldn't exist if it wasn't for all the politicians with diagnosable personality disorders.
But in the fabled old days when politicians traded favors in boozy, smoke-filled rooms, Obama's personality would have been spotted in five minutes. The Democratic Party before 1968 would have let him thrive as a Chicago politician as long as he didn't touch anything important. The old Daley Machine could have used him.
But elect a man to the presidency who may be psychologically fragile, to keep his finger on the nuclear button? Please. Get serious.
Well, the Left and the media have given us Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama, the man without a stable identity, who has only his imaginary fiction to guide him through life.
If they back off from the TSA groping scandal, expect more "dis the white folks" scandals, because that's what guides Obama's personal psychology. If you were wondering what Obama would do after his midterm losses, now you know the answer.
Just pray it doesn't get worse.
On the O’Reilly Factor, John Stossel illustrated what affirmative action is with a metaphorical bake sale. That is, he charged Asians $1.50 for the same cupcake that a white pays $1.00 and blacks and Hispanics $.50. This is obvious discrimination that everyone can see and understand as evidenced by the responses in the video below.
When it comes to admission to colleges, for example, this same parallel applies. Asians have to score much higher on their SAT’s to get in the same schools as whites whereas Hispanics are admitted with much lower scores and blacks even lower than that. No matter how you evaluate this, it is racism; that is, how a person is treated (admission to college) is based on race and not on abilities.
THIS IS RACISM! (Technically, it can be considered to be reverse racism.)
“Affirmative” action is a euphemism for sanctioned reverse racism. It is “negative” for the vast majority of more deserving or qualified individuals who are discriminated against because of these race based policies.
We see the same unequal treatment or opportunities in other areas such as bidding for federal, state or municipal contracts. This has become government mandated racism brought to you by the compassionate liberals. It is, however, a technical violation of the Fourteenth Amendment and it should not be condoned or accepted.
Affirmative action needs to be relegated to the trash heaps of history. This includes not only governmental related programs but also in education and the private sector. The state of Arizona with the successful approval of its Proposition 107 in the recent elections is the most recent state to ban this legislated discrimination.
We strongly recommend that the remaining states should pursue passage of similar legislation. Federal affirmative action policies should also be deep-sixed.
