“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police. The protests are being embraced, the protests are being encouraged. The protests, even the ones that don’t lead to violence, a lot of them lead to violence, all of them lead to a conclusion: The police are bad, the police are racist. That is completely wrong.”
–Mr. 9/11, Rudy Giuliani
Rudy, please cite your sources. I want to see this propaganda you claim has been coming from the president for months. Just one example will do, but four months worth sounds pretty exact, so it should be pretty easy to find. I’ll wait.
Hebephrenic TeeVee Dinner heir and vanity press owner Tucker Carlson:
“But it’s such an emotional thing, it’s so wrong, immoral, unfair, that it’s almost hard not to point at some of the people who have been whipping race hatred in this country for the past couple of months, and saying they do bear some responsibility for this.”
He has no self-awareness, does he?
…Doughy Pantload defends his insightful analysis that the cigarette tax is the root cause of Eric Garner’s death:
Reasonable people can disagree on whether racism was involved in the tragic death of Eric Garner. My own suspicion is that this misfortune could have transpired just as easily with a white man resisting arrest and/or a black cop choking him.
Because it is never about race. Do continue, Mr. Pantload.
But you know what reasonable people can’t dispute? New York’s cigarette taxes are partly to blame for Eric Garner’s death.
Really? I’m fascinated. Tell me more.
When you pass a law, you authorize law enforcement to enforce it. That’s actually why they’re called “law enforcement.” Google it.
That is some stunning insight Jonah. No wonder you get the big bucks, even as a legacy hire.
…the Enigma Machine to decipher what this means:
About 200 people met the marchers as they reached Rosebud around noon, activists said. A display of fried chicken, a melon and a 40-ounce beer bottle had been placed in the street. A Confederate flag flew. Counter-protestors shouted racial epithets.
The protest marchers were going from Ferguson to Jefferson City, Missouri.

So, we’re in post-racial America I’m told because twice we elected a black man to the highest office in the land by what can only modestly be described each time as a landslide. And yet…
The news today out of NY would have us believe otherwise: another Grand Jury decided to not indict white cop, Daniel Pantaleo, who killed an unarmed black man, Eric Garner. The Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide, so why there was a Grand Jury remains a mystery. That a nearby witness videographed the police choking the victim didn’t seem to hold any weight with the Grand Jury.
So much for the call for police to be equipped with body cameras.
And then there was also Ferguson’s Grand Jury within this last week, and smarter minds than mine have spilled a lot of virtual ink on that topic. Let’s just say it was another miscarriage of justice.
And then there’s the news that will be coming out sooner rather than later: The GOP-led Congress is mulling over a decision to not invite the first black president to The House to give the State of the Union Address. We’ve mentioned this insane idea before, but more as a laughing matter, but now it seems it is gathering some steam:
He seems nice.
Oh, I just read that he is an editor at Red State, which is our old pal Ewick son of Ewick’s place.
National Review editor Rich Lowry has suggested an innovative new way for Republicans to express their displeasure: ban President Obama from delivering the State of the Union Address:
“If I were John Boehner,” he said, referring to the House speaker, “I’d say to the president: ‘Send us your State of the Union in writing. You’re not welcome in our chamber.’ ”
Uh-huh. The Party of Lincoln telling the First Black President that he isn’t welcome in Congress will really go over well.
