Democrats murder the truth to play the race card

Hit the deck, people! Madison is studying the police

It was a small item in the WI State Journal sports page. The NFL’s Baltimore Ravens traded their  rookie field goal kicker to the Vikings. Norwegian-born Kaare Vedvik had to sit out all of last season after being assaulted in Baltimore. What are the odds?

Talking heads like CNN’s “Fredo” Cuomo and Don Lemon assure their parishioners that Donald Trump is a racist because he criticized U.S. Rep. Emmanuel Cummings for paying more attention to foreign asylum seekers at the border than his own constituency in dysfunctional Baltimore. (The news media continues to misquote his statement after Charlottesville.) It’s almost enough to destroy one’s trust in the mainstream news media! (Well, it IS!)

Who is bigger threat?

A little sauce for the goose

If racism is defined as pre-judging, differentiating, or antagonism directed against other people because they are of a different race or ethnicity, “or the belief that members of different races or ethnicities should be treated differently” (as Wikipedia relates) then let’s it is time to put Democrats Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren in the dock.

For they are outright lying that that white Ferguson police officer “murdered” Michael Brown.

Ann of Althouse relates that the Washington Post’s fact checker gave “four Pinocchios” to Harris and Warren for tweeting that Brown was “murdered.” Quoting Glenn Kessler at The Washington Post:

One can certainly raise questions about whether [Officer] Wilson should have fired as many shots as he did or acted appropriately under the circumstances…. But Harris and Warren have ignored the findings of the Justice Department to accuse Wilson of murder, even though the Justice Department found no credible evidence to support that claim. Instead, the Justice Department found that the popular narrative was wrong, according to witnesses deemed to be credible, some of whom testified reluctantly because of fear of reprisal.

The department produced a comprehensive report to determine what happened, making the senators’ dismissal of it even more galling.

Politically correct racism

Harris and Warren are in the front tier of Democrats seeking to replace Trump. They are not outliers. Beto, Bernie, Buttigieg, Biden, and de Blasio — all are playing the blue race card. Is their race-mongering preferable to Trump’s? More politically correct?

No, but in places like Madison it is good politics. It is an article of faith among the ruling establishment that police everywhere are straight-line descendants of slave catchers — even Madison’s four school cops, all of whom are persons of color. Cops Out of Schools!

For four years and counting, the Common Council has been studying the police. Cop-hater Brenda Konkel gets appointed to the Public Safety Committee. Progressive Dane Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway condemns a police officer on the basis of a video.

Required reading for the mayor, for the alders, for the school board:

There Is No Epidemic of Racist Police Shootings.”

Comment BlackA new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences demolishes the Democratic narrative regarding race and police shootings, which holds that white officers are engaged in an epidemic of racially biased shootings of black men. It turns out that white officers are no more likely than black or Hispanic officers to shoot black civilians. It is a racial group’s rate of violent crime that determines police shootings, not the race of the officer. The more frequently officers encounter violent suspects from any given racial group, the greater the chance that members of that racial group will be shot by a police officer. In fact, if there is a bias in police shootings after crime rates are taken into account, it is against white civilians, the study found. 

A 2015 Justice Department study of the Philadelphia Police Department found that black officers were 67 percent more likely than white officers to mistakenly shoot an unarmed black suspect; 

The anti-cop narrative deflects attention away from solving the real criminal-justice problem, which is high rates of black-on-black victimization. Blacks die of homicide at eight times the rate of non-Hispanic whites, overwhelmingly killed not by cops, not by whites, but by other blacks.

Blaska’s Bottom LineWhen husband and wife are out for their evening stroll and have to hit the ground to duck gunfire, one might suspect that police are not the problem.  (The police report here.)

But this is the Emerald City. We study the police.

    So. America elects a black president, re elects him and he places the top posts in the federal government, most notably in the DOJ and ICE. Then, instantly, the Left tells us the KKK is about to launch mass demonstrations. The incoming president, who had been awarded an Ellis Island Award with Rosa Parks and Muhammed Ali, is accused of being a white supremacist for the first time in his long very public life.
    They have lost their Hard Left minds.

    It should be no surprise that Warren, Harris, and the vast majority of Democrats running for president are as racist as they come. Far-left fanaticism has produced a new breed of racists who are as proud to wave their banners (“White Privilege!” “Institutional Racism!” “Police Brutality!”) as old-fashioned racists are to wave the Confederate flag.

    As for the local variety of lefty racists, specifically the liberal potentates who rule the UW, they find themselves faced with a (delicious) moral conundrum in the form of one Quintez Cephus, a black man recently acquitted of rape charges who is now seeking to be reinstated by the University and allowed to re-join the football team. A year ago, the UW, carried along by the tidal wave of @MeToo hysteria, was quick to show him the door as soon as he was charged with (but not tried for) a crime. Now the University’s administrative elites find themselves between a rock (offending the @MeToo harpies for whom the workings of the criminal justice system mean nothing) and a hard place (expelling a black man whom the justice system has acquitted). I for one couldn’t be more pleased. So far the UW, forever trumpeting its pledge to “transparency,” is stonewalling up a storm. I’m only curious as to how much blood (and whose) will be on the floor before this issue is resolved.

      Quintez Cephus is one egg. The UW racial policy is the omelette. The UW will pay him a lot of tax payers money to get rid of Mr. Cephus faster than a southern mob could lynch Atticus Finch’s client.
      Why? Because the UW PC police and the @MeToo mob can neither sift nor winnow. No more than a Dem presidential wannabe can address the facts in Black Lies Matter.

    Seems the jurors saw it pretty clearly one way.

    ~45 minutes to decide an alleged sexual assault/rape case trial verdict is warp speed/nano-second/lickety split fast AND there’s been rumblings that Ozanne should’ve have never brought charges.

    The UW is in Tits-In-A-Ringer legal jeopardy for expelling him without due process.

    The coupla mill (they may need to break into their not-so-secret-no-more Pin Money account?) he will fairly wring out of them may defray his legal bills (if it wasn’t pro bono[?]) and help him put his life back together.

    35 years ago I asked a genteel old southern gal to explain southern racism to me. She said ” in the south we esteem the individual black and despise the race. Up north its the other way around.”

    I later hosted two African professors around South Carolina and introduced them to some guys I considered stone racists who treated them with great interest and courtesy. I asked the white guys about it later and they were surprised that I perceived a contradiction. One of them explained it to me thusly. “My good friend is black, we played football together and went all through school close to each other. We grew up in the same town that’s 30% black. We all know each other since forever. I know the blacks from the n^%$#&s like they know the whites from the trash.

    Mr. Cephus is a man, a citizen with the assumption of innocence and a right to a trial by his peers, in which he was acquitted. No more but sure as hell NO LESS. He is not a race, a non citizen or a rapist. Unfortunately he is not a man and not an American citizen to the racial equity, @MeToo, cultural revolutionaries.

    Well, that RealClearPolitics article about the great “lie” of Charlottesville you link to is a complete load of horse manure. Wah, wah, Trump was talking about the PROTESTERS when he said “there were fine people on both sides,” not the Nazis.” Such BS. There were Nazis protesting by tiki torch the night before and in the streets the day a protester was killed. Those were the two sides; the revisionism here is thick. He condemned the Nazis ONCE, in a throwaway line, while repeatedly saying BOTH side were at fault. The mainstream media’s reporting on this is correct. No wonder Richard Spencer, the Nazis and the white nationalists consider him their supporter.

      One of the wonderful things about our resident lefties is that they are so stereotypical that one can use them to illustrate broader themes about the left in general. For instance the Canon belief that Trump is a closet Nazi. If Trump says nothing about white supremacists; he’s a Nazi. If Trump denounces white supremacists; he really didn’t mean it (because he’s a Nazi).

      One will also note the implicit notion that the left has the right to control public discourse by force. They will assert this is entirely fine because they are fighting Nazis. Which sounds great, until you realize a couple of things. Guaranteeing right to speak freely in public keeps the political process from being monopolized by the most powerful and violent. Everyone they disagree with seem to be a Nazi. What an odd coincidence.

    • ” The mainstream media’s reporting on this is correct.”

      Way to tow the party line there Bob.

      You’re correct when you wrote that there were only two sides in Charlottesville but you were wrong about what two sides were there; one side was against tearing down historical statues, the other side wants to tear down historical statues. The more hateful and violent tendency sects of wackos within those two groups, like Nazi’s, ANTIFA, SJW, are irrelevant to those that are not part of the sects and to include everyone in these sects is immoral!

      “There were fine people on both sides” is a fact that cannot be ignored by civil intelligent people. Of course partisan hacks like you, the lunatic left wing, and the left wing media that is completely consumed with their anti-Trumpness try to dump everyone that opposes them into the same category so you all can justify hating them all. You people are the real problem in the United States. Those that are part of the Nazi’s, ANNTIFA, and SJW are not the people that Trump spoke of and anyone that tries to claim otherwise is a LIAR or a complete imbecile.

      What’s a complete load of horse manure is your “argument” that’s nothing but anti-Trump talking points.
