Grow Up, People. Including You, @DavidFrum
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die … a time to keep silence, and a time to speak Oh the irony of me telling others to grow up. Even I see that. But seriously people, grow up. As a shooter roamed the Navy Yard and body lie dying, | Read More »
Unbeatable villains and perpetual despair
What passes for “leadership” in the modern “civil-rights” community has frequently compared the shooting of Trayvon Martin to the brutal murder of black teenager Emmett Till in the 1950s. One of the people who did this is billionaire Oprah Winfrey, fresh from nearly destroying the life of an innocent Swiss shop clerk by falsely accusing her of racism. Asked about Winfrey’s comparison on MSNBC Friday | Read More »
“Not Familiar” With The Christopher Lane Killing?
If President Barack Obama had a son he may well look like the guy who blew a hole in Australian Christopher Lane because he was “bored.” Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller describes the senseless killing below.
James Edwards, 15, Chancey Luna, 16, and Michael Jones, 17, have all been charged as adults in Lane’s death. Lane, a 22 year-old student from Melbourne, was out for a jog last Friday evening when the three teens began following him in a car and shot him “just for the fun of it,” according to Duncan officials.
Soon after the horrible Trayvon Martin shooting, there was a generous 20% off sale on Obama 2012 College-style Hooded Sweatshirts. (AKA “Hoodies.”). Amping up the racial outrage was seen as a ticket to getting strong Obama supporters to fill coffers and flood the polls. To what extent that worked has never been mathematically evaluated. I only point out that The Obama Campaign’s merchandising team was Johnnie-On-The-Spot after George Zimmerman shot Martin. As for Christopher Lane, the White House Propaganda Flack is “not familiar” with the event.

An Ecumenical Hope Post Zimmerman Trial
The death of Trayvon Martin and the Zimmerman trial show there are deep wounds and grievances in this country and too many people who profit from fanning the flames. Too many in the white community see violence in the black community and think, “That’s their problem. Blacks killing blacks, we’ll let them figure it out.” But it is not their problem. It is all of | Read More »
Trayvon mythology and anti-civilization
The “Justice for Trayvon” crowd is perpetuating a number of myths that have nothing to do with the facts of the case, beginning with the fashionable new notion that “justice” was not served at George Zimmerman’s murder trial. On the contrary, the law was bent and warped out of shape to allow that trial to exist at all, leading celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz to say | Read More »
Zimmerman, Martin and The Failed American Melting Pot.
I hope the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman Fiasco has given The House of Representatives something to think about before they even consider bringing The Gang of Eight Bill to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote. We should stipulate as an obvious given that the American Melting Pot has recently failed at making our nation more peaceful and prosperous. Like the Late Roman Empire prior to its disaster at Adrianople in AD 378, we assimilate diverse cultures no better than The Emperor Gratian could assimilate the Goths.
Unassimilated minorities in America typically hate the place. They frequently have valid and legitimate gravamen for their hatred. Anyone who looks at the rates at which African-Americans are aborted, shot, fail out of school and wind up either jobless or incarcerated couldn’t be entirely blamed for believing that most of the rest of America is attempting to eject them from our culture the way a white blood cell attacks a hostile bacteria. Absent any back-story, I really can’t blame them for hating my guts as a nameless, faceless White Man on a visceral level. Now quit being shocked. I only differ from the herd by being proudly uncultured enough to state the obvious and unpalatable truth.

Mr. President, Can We Please Move On?
I have said and will say again — the death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. A jury of six in Florida has determined it was not criminal, but George Zimmerman will forever be the man who killed a 17 year old. No one can be happy about what happened other than, for Zimmerman and his family, that a jury believed him. Now the NAACP | Read More »
There is Only Tragedy Here
There is only tragedy in the Zimmerman trial. There are no sides but Justice to root for, but a Justice that will leave one side unsatisfied and still empty. Both sides made mistakes in this awful mess. George Zimmerman may not be guilty of either murder or manslaughter, but he killed Trayvon Martin. A seventeen year old is dead. A family has lost a son. | Read More »
A Self-Inflicted Hubris Shot to the Head
Mike Wallace is dead. Growing up, I’d spend the summer away from Dubai at my grandparents’ home in Louisiana. Sunday nights were back to back Murder She Wrote and 60 Minutes. Many conservatives would accuse Mike Wallace and 60 Minutes of a liberal view point and shading stories to match their world view. Growing up, 60 Minutes was, to me, journalism done right. They asked | Read More »
MSNBC’s Karen Finney Says the Koch Brothers Killed Trayvon Martin
Trayvon Martin‘s death in Florida is a terrible tragedy made even worse by a police department that seemingly bungled the investigation. There are multiple eyewitnesses, some who saw the shooter, George Zimmerman, yelling for help. Others saw Trayvon Martin yelling for help. It shouldn’t be a partisan issue. But MSNBC decided to make it one. According to Karen Finney on MSNBC, the Koch Brothers, NRA, | Read More »
Trayvon Martin — The Facts and the Bubble #EERS
Tonight, I’m going to spend a bit of time discussing the Trayvon Martin story. There seems to be a concerted effort by the left to take on this cause and turn it into some sort of partisan issue. But there isn’t a partisan issue. There is, however, a matter of justice. There is also a difference between many of us and what we think is | Read More »
