Last week, DePaul University informed the DePaul Young Americans for Freedom chapter (of which I am Vice Chairman) that they plan to partake in this attack. DePaul University has banned conservative commentator Ben Shapiro from appearing on campus. Mr. Shapiro’s strong defense of the Constitution and conservative values is apparently too much for the University and its students to handle.
The religion of peace strikes again, but this time truck manufacturers and possibly petroleum producers that powered said vehicle are on the hook for creating and enabling an instrument of terror. Nevertheless, let us not act too hastily in passing judgement on the machine and its manufacturer; this could serve as a learning moment.
Indeed, not all trucks are the same. The white truck in Nice, France behaved rather badly, but we shouldn’t let that incident diminish our collective perception of other trucks. The #NotAllTrucks is ablaze with pithy Twitter insight. Here’s one gem:
The driver of the truck is blameless due to the fact that he was only fulfilling one of the basic tenants of his beloved Islamic faith–smiting the infidel. And lets face it, how many of those 50 or so French pedestrians were devout Muslims or non believers paying their jitza (also known as Obama’s fair share)? If you ask me, I’d say those croissant-eating cappuccino-sipping Frenchmen had it coming; they’ll just have learn to embrace multiculturalism, take sensitivity classes, buy a prayer rug, and find out where the hell Mecca is when the call to prayer is announced. In the meantime, don’t let the xenophobia and bigotry get in the way of more mass migration of more like-minded Muslims in the E.U. and U.S. These Islamic people integrate into western society so seamlessly; that is why you never see or hear them in mass protesting these acts of terror!
Heather MacDonald provides clear thinking with hard facts and data as opposed to an agenda-driven media that is invested in an anti-police narrative that runs counter to reality. The interview provides important insights regarding policing and the dark trends that are now predictably materializing in the realm of public safety.
After a prank pulled by Banksy got a homeless man kicked out of his longtime home in a Los Angeles water tank, the secretive British street artist made amends by giving the man enough money to live for a full year.
The trouble began after Banksy turned Tachowa Covington’s makeshift Pacific Coast Highway home into a piece of art by spray painting along the side of the bus-sized tank ‘This looks a bit like an elephant’ and it only got worse when collectors who covet the elusive artist’s work bought Covington’s squat to sell to collectors.
Neighborhood liberals were outraged that a local homeless man, and black to boot, had the gall to forego government subsides and save taxpayer money by outfitting a unused water tank as an apartment. “The arrogance of these misfits knows no bounds,” chided William Randers who personally took great pleasure in learning that Tachowa was getting the boot. He reminisced about beauty of the landscape and quipped, “People like that need to know their place and it is governments job to keep them in it.”
Under the condition of anonymity, one H.U.D. official observed that creatures like Tachowa were a threat to governmental hegemony. “Where does a guy like this get off on living independently and establishing a somewhat luxurious abode without taking some of our tax money? Such audacity needs to be dialed back lest others start getting some fancy notion about taking their lips off the government tit, living independent lives, and, God help us, voting Republican!”
The Obama administration congratulated Bansky during a secret ceremony at the White House for his work in getting Tachowa back to milking the public tit. The president reading off a teleprompter addressed Bansky and a small contingent of liberal technocrats,”It isn’t often when an artist’s ploy of charity mimics my greater designs on this nation. Bansky’s efforts could almost be labeled as brilliant had he used someone else’s money to ply Tachowa after he uprooted him from his humble abode. The genius lies in charity with money that is not your own. Think stimulus my minions! Ponder schemes that extract the earned wealth from the doers and sprinkle it on layabouts. They’ll always reward us with their vote. Just be ever vigilant of the Tachowas who attempt to break free from our grip; a little independence can be a dangerous thing!”
Tachowa now lives in a H.U.D. container project. He laments the loss of his water tank apartment with its smooth design and pleasant view. “Well, nothing good lasts forever. Now I live in an ugly box at the taxpayer expense,” said the once happy squatter.
Could the aforementioned bile merit an I.R.S. audit of the swine?
The face of America is changing. More than half of all babies in the United States are now of color. By the end of this decade, most youth will be too. Within three decades, more than half of all Americans will be people of color.
But even as our country grows more diverse, inequity for people of color continues to grow. The Great Recession caused a huge and disproportionate drop in wealth for people of color. Black family wealth fell 31 percent; Latino family wealth dropped 44 percent, while white families lost only 11 percent of their wealth. As a result, families of color went from having a quarter of the wealth of white families to just one-sixth.
These opposing trends — increasing inequity in the midst of rapid demographic changes across the country — require us to reassess our priorities and acknowledge that the future prosperity of the United States depends on embracing our nation’s diversity today. Our chasms are deep. But if we address these gaps, we can grow more robustly.
They never tell you what it means to embrace diversity. The meaningless buzz word is basically code for government intervention in the form of quotas, affirmative action, and other measures that snuff out liberty. Tanden and Blackwell’s pleas, demands, and grievances focus on society at large because they are fronting for the “victims”; something akin to the tail wagging the dog since the expectation of the race hustler centers on the rest of us accommodating the designated special groups defined by race. The values of personal responsibility and hard work are not part of the equation since such values would diminish the hustler’s base. A responsible and hard working citizen of any color makes his own way in life and has little use for someone who peddles divisive rhetoric while promoting envy and hopelessness.
Thomas Sowell’s explanation of race hucksters provides a clear insight into the misdirection employed by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Not-So-Sharpton. Neera Tanden and Angela Glover Blackwell part of that machine designed to promote cognitive dissonance marketed as diversity. They are all about big government and despise the free market.
What are the drunks going to do with all that urine? Hey, no more dice throwing in the alley! Does that mean I have to buy an Xbox now?
“For these three offenses, the rates of default have been in the 50 to 70 percent range. . . . Residents forced to observe these behaviors eventually become numb to these violations of decency and unacceptable behavior. As a result, the scale of acceptable behavior gradually falls away,” Georgas said. “This sort of unchecked behavior will then lead to further disorder and can ultimately lead to other crimes such as solicitation, narcotics sales and gang loitering. That is why it is imperative that we enforce these quality of life issues that are being ignored, so offenders realize their behavior will not be accepted.”
For starters, the state, county, and city are broke. The jails can’t even house the murders for their entire sentence. Do they really think there is room for peeing offenders who don’t pay their tickets?
The big-cheese police boss says the community becomes numb with offenses like these going unpunished. Well, that “community” is already inured to not working for a living, not raising children in a two parent home, not raising children period, and electing Democrats who push policies that foster more and more dependency on government. Drinking, gambling, and pissing are just a normal symptoms of existence in a government-subsidized subculture.
Take away the section 8, cancel the Link cards, stop rewarding reckless procreation, and wipe out that overblown sense of entitlement. These miserable people would be able to lead a life if the government would just let them live it like the rest of us.
I watched the video and wondered why all those white teenagers were acting up and running amuck. Oh, the marauding youth turned out to be hoards of black teens subsidized by our tax dollars. Sorry, only absent parents, or rather irresponsible baby’s mamas are to blame along with government policies that reward reckless procreation with monetary subsidies for more reckless procreation.
Andrew Holmes made false claims regarding the parents of the out-of-control throng by saying that the parents need to check their child if they’ve been arrested. Come on Andrew, these feral beasts have no parents–the government went to great lengths to make sure of that! I think every news channel had a mic in this guy’s face. Another example of the new’s soft touch regarding minorities, especially the black ones, and crime.
“How could anyone with a sense of pride participate in a meaningless parade of nothingness,” quipped Alex, leader and brainchild of a marauding four man team in the U.K. “When we have a thirst for the ulta-violent, we fancy a romp without diluting the experience with more participants. We viddy a mark, take pleasure in drawing some blood, reap some copper, and after feeling rather fagged and shagged we head over to the Korova Milk Bar for some milk plus. Me and my droogies have standards unlike those savage blokes in Chicago.
President Obama blamed the Bush administration for the violence in Chicago in late March. His impassioned speech addressed the core issues regarding the flash mobs:
“I’m sure people would like to blame the warm weather or the racial makeup of the melee participants. One might even go as far as to blame the hard working layabout single mothers who bore these ragging beasts out of wedlock without ever having any intention to wed the sperm downer. No explanation can best expose the genesis of these violent outbreaks than the former Bush administration that failed to properly subsidize the degenerate, the unwilling, and the sloth. I’m here to change that and I’m changing it now. But lets focus on gay marriage and gun control; pay no attention to the debt, illegal aliens, and endless spending. We get through this by borrowing our way to prosperity.”
I like it. Read the DM story here.
