The Worst RACISTS in America! (They HATE Black People!)

Do you know who was the biggest supporter and promoter of slavery in America?

Do you know who was so outraged by the abolition of slavery in this country that they formed the Ku Klux Klan and participated in countless murders, beatings, and lynchings?

Do you know who is responsible for undermining the black father and removing him from the home, thus creating an endless cycle of crime and poverty within the black community?

Do you know who is most responsible for promoting abortion among black mothers?

Do you know who has the most to gain by maintaining an underclass of black Americans and preventing them from attaining financial independence?

Do you know who is most adamant about judging people by their skin color rather than their character?

Do you know who is the biggest promoter of division among the races today?

The answer to all of these questions is… the Democratic Party.

University newspaper changes its name because it ‘propagated violence’

A scary newspaper that will incite violence, oh my!

A scary newspaper that will incite violence, oh my!

Campus Reform: The student-run newspaper at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) is changing its name from The Bullet to The Blue & Gray Press over concerns that its original name carried violent connotations.

“The editorial board felt that the paper’s name, which alludes to ammunition for an artillery weapon (since when?), propagated violence and did not honor our school’s history in a sensitive manner,” the press release provided to Campus Reform states. “The board intends to remain faithful to the history our university stands upon, and we continue to honor this history both in a respectful and meaningful way.”

Alison Thoet, the paper’s editor-in-chief, told Campus Reform in an interview that the editorial board felt the old name was “a little outdated” and was more representative of the Fredericksburg, Va., community’s ties to the Civil War and not the school as a whole. “In this day and age, no one really cares about the Civil War. We wanted something that was updated,” Thoet said.

Fredericksburg, located midway between Washington, D.C., and the former Confederate capital of Richmond, Va., was the site of five major battles during the Civil War with several other battles fought nearby.

The Blue & Gray Press is representative of the university’s school colors—ironically representative of the Civil War as well—which Thoet, a senior at UMW, says better reflects the school and student body. “We want our students to be more involved and more intrigued by what’s in our paper since essentially it’s all about them,” she said.

UMW students also considered changing the name of the publication in 1971 during the Vietnam War. Thoet said that as a liberal arts school, UMW students weren’t enthusiastic about the name of the paper alluding to an artillery weapon.

According to the most recent report from UMW’s campus police, there was only one weapons arrest in 2012 and it took place off-campus and on public property. University policy prohibits any weapons—from rifles to toy guns—on campus.

The new name comes along with a complete redesign of the weekly student publication. When the new paper debuts on Sept. 4—both in print and online—it will have increased from 10 to 12 pages, be smaller in size, and have an entirely new logo.

“Observing the evolving era of journalism, which has seen a complete change of numerous university, local and national newspapers, the editorial board came to the conclusion that UMW’s student newspaper is in need of a major redesign in order to accompany the constantly developing world of modern journalism,” the press release says. “The board views a new name as an opportunity to propel the publication into the modern era.”

The name change won’t be official until UMW’s Student Activities and Engagement Office gives final approval, but the publication’s website has already changed its URL.

A representative from the Student Activities and Engagement Office did not respond to requests for comment from Campus Reform.

A spokesperson from George Washington University declined to comment on if the student newspaper, The Hatchet, would also consider changing its name as it’s an independent student publication. The editor-in-chief of The Hatchet did not respond to requests for comment from Campus Reform.

Wonder if they’ll outlaw these word/phrases on campus?

Spirit of the Nazis masquerading as art

“Body Worlds” Exhibition:
Josef Mengele would be proud

Such desecration of the human body for entertainment has never happened in my lifetime until now.

In the past year, my wife and I began noticing billboards and TV ads promoting a traveling exhibit called, “Body Worlds.” Our first reaction, on recognizing that the “sculptures” on display were actual human corpses cut open and reshaped into humorous poses, was to wonder how anyone could do such a thing in the name of art. Second question was, “How could anyone view this as entertainment?” And third was, “What kind of coarsening of the culture’s conscience will result?”

Piss_Christ_by_Serrano_AndresAs an artist, it is nothing new for me to hear the excuses offered by promoters for outrageously offensive exhibits. One work of “art” by Andres Serrano, “Piss Chr**t,” comes to mind. I am very uncomfortable even mentioning the title of this blasphemy, but desire to make my point.

This new exhibit at Boston’s Faneuil Hall has been accepted without a peep of protest. Although it is not a blasphemy against God, it is a blasphemy against His creation, a desecration of something made in the image of God. My personal opinion is that this is of satanic origin.

Keep in mind, this is not the same thing as the study of the human body by doctors, scientists and medical students. It is a show!

When a people can look on with ease at such macabre spectacles, what atrocities might later be possible that would otherwise have never happened?

I have cited below, excerpts of 2 articles that raise similar objections to this traveling show. ~ TD

ABC NEWS: Exhibition of Human Corpses Sparks Furor

by Leela Jacinto

He’s been compared to Dr. Frankenstein and Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, but Prof. Gunther von Hagens sees himself in a more Renaissance role; a sort of latter-day Leonardo da Vinci in anatomy study.

But when his latest exhibition, “Koerpewelten” or “Body Worlds” opened in Berlin last month, a number of residents, including Germany’s Roman Catholic Church, saw nothing renaissance in his work. They simply found it sick, sinful and macabre.

It’s easy to see why visitors might find von Hagens’ work offensive. His exhibits include a man contemplating a chessboard as he sits at a table with his brains exposed. Another piece depicts a standing man, muscles and tissues bared, cavalierly holding his skin aloft. Other works include a pregnant woman with her belly peeled to expose a curled fetus

‘Bodies Revealed’ exhibit is a desecration of the human body

Editor’s note: The following essay is a portion of a sermon Rabbi David Krishef gave recently at Congregation Ahavas Israel in Grand Rapids.

by Rabbi David Krishef

Plastination, the process of removing the fluids from a body and replacing them with liquid polymer, was invented by a 64-year-old German medical pathologist named Gunther von Hagens. This month, the Grand Rapids Public Museum opened an exhibit of plastinated bodies called “Bodies Revealed.”

Rabbi David Krishef

Rabbi David Krishef

Von Hagens created the process to preserve cadavers for medical schools, but he soon found it more lucrative to exhibit the bodies and charge admission. To bring in crowds, he skinned, sliced and posed the corpses, billing them as art. Among his displays was a man carrying his own skin over his shoulder; another featured a man kneeling in prayer, his heart literally in his hands.

His show, “Body Worlds,” created using donated cadavers, has attracted more than 26 million people over the past decade and has taken in over $200 million…

We live in a dangerous time. 
Be careful for your soul. 

 

Are You Young and Dumb?

Here’s a quick quiz. Please answer A, B, or C, and please
be honest with yourself. (And note that young does not necessarily correspond to chronological age.) Are you:

A) Young and intelligent.

B) Young and misinformed.

C) Young and dumb.

Young and intelligent is weighing all sides of an issue and
then forming a viewpoint based on facts and logic. Most young
and intelligent people began life young and misinformed.

Somewhere along the line, they decided that maybe there were two sides to the stories they were being told, and then went out to investigate for themselves. Approximately 5-10% of the American population is young and intelligent.

Young and misinformed is believing everything you’ve been
told by your college professors and the mainstream media.

There’s no shame in being young and misinformed. 90% of all
Americans were young and misinformed at one time or another, and a good 60% of adult Americans remain in this group.

Someone who is young and misinformed has a distorted view
of reality, but is still intelligent enough to consider
alternative viewpoints. They just have never been exposed to
those alternative viewpoints.

Young and dumb is somebody who is not only young and
misinformed, they are also incapable of considering and judging
any viewpoints other than what they currently believe.

Even worse, the young and dumb don’t want to hear
alternative viewpoints. Their emotional state is so fragile
that to even consider alternative viewpoints is positively
frightening. Therefore, they refuse to look at any evidence
that contradicts their own myopic and misinformed view of the
world. They value opinion and emotions over facts and logic.

30% of all Americans are young and dumb, and they include
some of the most esteemed and educated individuals in our
country.

If you’re wondering where you fit in these three examples, ask yourself this:

Are you aware that aka Barack Obama is a pathological liar and who has broken the law on numerous occasions, including ordering the IRS to attack his opponents?

Are you aware that Michael Brown was videotaped performing a violent strong-arm robbery minutes before he was shot, and most likely assaulted the police officer who did shoot him?

Are you aware the Hillary Clinton left four Americans to die and then later infamously proclaimed, “What difference at this point does it make?”

Are you aware that the mainstream media routinely twists facts and fabricates lies in order to advance a leftist agenda?

Are you aware that most American universities are centers of leftist indoctrination?

If you answered YES to these five questions, then you belong in the first group. You are young and intelligent.

If you were caught off-guard by these questions, and have no idea how to answer them, you belong to the second group, the young and misinformed.

If you denied the reality of these five questions, then, alas, you are a member of the third group, the young and dumb. Please seek help now and at least attempt to educate yourself. The fact that you are on this site and reading this is a good sign and a good start. You’ve taken the first step to becoming young and intelligent.

A Primer on Race by Thomas Sowell

Back in the heyday of the British Empire, a man from one of the colonies addressed a London audience.

“Please do not do any more good in my country,” he said. “We have suffered too much already from all the good that you have done.”

That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in America. Its title is “Please Stop Helping Us.” Its theme is that many policies designed to help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so. These counterproductive policies range from minimum wage laws to “affirmative action” quotas.

This book untangles the controversies, the confusions, and the irresponsible rhetoric in which issues involving minimum wage laws are usually discussed. As someone who has followed minimum wage controversies for decades, I must say that I have never seen the subject explained more clearly or more convincingly.

Black teenage unemployment rates ranging from 20 to 50 percent have been so common over the past 60 years that many people are unaware that this was not true before there were minimum wage laws, or even during years when inflation rendered minimum wage laws ineffective, as in the late 1940s.

Pricing young people out of work deprives them not only of income but also of work experience, which can be even more valuable. Pricing young people out of legal work, when illegal work is always available, is just asking for trouble. So is having large numbers of idle young males hanging out together on the streets.

When it comes to affirmative action, Jason Riley asks the key question: “Do racial preferences work? What is the track record?” Like many other well-meaning and nice-sounding policies, affirmative action cannot survive factual scrutiny.

Some individuals may get jobs they would not get otherwise but many black students who are quite capable of getting a good college education are admitted, under racial quotas, to institutions whose pace alone is enough to make it unlikely that they will graduate.

Studies that show how many artificial failures are created by affirmative action admissions policies are summarized in “Please Stop Helping Us,” in language much easier to understand than in the original studies.

There are many ponderous academic studies of blacks, if you have a few months in which to read them, but there is nothing to match Jason Riley’s book as a primer that will quickly bring you up to speed on the complicated subject of race in a week, or perhaps over a weekend.

As an experienced journalist, rather than an academic, Riley knows how to use plain English to get to the point. He also has the integrity to give it to you straight, instead of in the jargon and euphemisms too often found in discussions of race. The result is a book that provides more knowledge and insight in a couple of hundred pages than are usually found in books twice that length.

Unlike academics who just tell facts, Riley knows which facts are telling.

For example, in response to claims that blacks don’t do well academically because the schools use an approach geared to white students, he points out that blacks from foreign, non-English-speaking countries do better in American schools than black, English-speaking American students.

Asian students do better than whites in schools supposedly geared to whites. In New York City’s three academically elite public high schools — Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech — there are more than twice as many Asian students as white students in all three institutions.

So much for the theory that non-whites can’t do well in schools supposedly geared to whites.

On issue after issue, “Please Stop Helping Us” cites facts to destroy propaganda and puncture inflated rhetoric. It is impossible to do justice to the wide range of racial issues — from crime to family disintegration — explored in this book. Pick up a copy and open pages at random to see how the author annihilates nonsense.

His brief comments pack a lot of punch. For example, “having a black man in the Oval Office is less important than having one in the home.”

Famous atheist Richard Dawkins says it’s our moral duty to kill the mentally retarded

“In a world without God, everything is permitted.”
-Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

In addition to exterminating millions of Jews, Nazi Germany also killed gypsies (Romani), Christians (Edith Stein and Maximilian Kolbe are examples), the physically handicapped, and the mentally retarded, including those with Down Syndrome.

Now a famous atheist, 73-year-old British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, says it would be “immoral” not to abort a baby with Down Syndrome, which is another way of saying it is our moral duty to kill those with Down Syndrome.

Richard Dawkins, 73

Richard Dawkins, 73

Dustin Siggins reports for LifeSiteNews that in an exchange on Twitter on August 20, 2014, Dawkins wrote that choosing not to abort a child with Down Syndrome would be “uncivilized” and “immoral.”

The conversation began when Dawkins tweeted that “Ireland is a civilised country except in this 1 area.” The area was abortion, which until last year was illegal in all cases in Ireland.

A Twitter user named Aidan McCourt asked Dawkins if “994 human beings with Down’s Syndrome [having been] deliberately killed before birth in England and Wales in 2012″ was “civilised.”

Dawkins replied: “Yes, it is very civilised. These are fetuses, diagnosed before they have human feelings.”

Dawkins tweet

Later, Dawkins said that “the question is not ‘is it ‘human’?’ but ‘can it SUFFER?’”

In perhaps the most shocking moment, one Twitter user wrote that s/he “honestly [doesn't] know what I would do if I were pregnant with a kid with Down Syndrome. Real ethical dilemma.”

Dawkins advised the writer to “abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice.”

According to Dawkins, the issue of who should be born comes down to a calculation based upon possible suffering. “Yes. Suffering should be avoided. [The abortion] cause[s] no suffering. Reduce suffering wherever you can.”

It is estimated that in many Western countries the abortion rate of children diagnosed in utero with Down syndrome is 90%, or even higher. The development of new and more accurate tests for the condition has raised concerns among Down syndrome advocates that that number could rise even higher.

Although it is widely believed that people with Down syndrome are doomed to a life of suffering, in one large survey 99% of respondents with Down syndrome said they were “happy.” At the same time, 99% of parents said they loved their child with Down syndrome, and 97% said they were proud of them.

Only 4% of parents who responded said they regretted having their child.

Scientist though he is, Dawkins is simply wrong about fetuses babies in the womb not feeling pain. It is now well-established that 20 weeks into a pregnancy, unborn children can feel pain. Likewise, unborn children have emotional reactions to external stimuli — such as a mother’s stress levels — months before being born.

In other words, the unborn baby DOES suffer when he or she is aborted.

Finally, if “suffering” — as conjectured and determined not by the sufferer but by “scientists” like Dawkins — is the criterion for killing someone, then we might as well bring back Hitler and the Nazis.

Didn’t you know that the Nazis fervently believed that, in exterminating millions of human beings, they were doing good by eliminating the sub-human (Untermensch) so as to prevent them for polluting the human gene pool?

Tennessee public school suspends student for saying “Bless you”

Dyer County High School

If you’re a student at Dyer County High School, a public high school in Newbern, Tennessee, you should know that you can get suspended for the heinous crime of saying “Bless you.”

Michael Clark reports for Channel 5 WMC in Tennessee, Aug. 20, 2014, that Dyer County High School suspended senior Kendra Turner  for breaking a class rule by saying “bless you” to a classmate who’d sneezed.

Turner said her teacher told her saying “bless you” was for church, “that we’re not going to have godly speaking in her class and that’s when I said we have a constitutional right.” When Turner defended her actions, she was told to see an administrator. The girl finished the class period in in-school suspension.

Students sent WMC Action News 5’s Michael Clark a photo of the teacher’s white board that lists “bless you” and other expressions that are banned as part of class rules. (I’ve circled the words “Bless You” in red.)

Dyer County High School whiteboard

Turner’s youth pastor Becky Winegardner said, “There were several students  that were talking about this particular faculty member there that was very demeaning to them in regard to their faith. This was something that had come up previously in the last few weeks just since the beginning of school and I shared with all of those students what their rights were.”

After meeting with school administrators, Turner’s parents say the school leaders claim the outburst was a classroom distraction and that she shouted “bless you” across the room. The teacher claimed Turner was being disruptive and aggressive.

Yesterday, Aug. 19, Turner’s classmates showed their support by wearing hand made bless you shirts.

Turner said she doesn’t want trouble for her teacher but says she’ll stand up for her faith, “It’s alright to defend God and it’s our constitutional right because we have a freedom of religion and freedom of speech.”

Bainbridge teen stages tree-sit to block shopping center development

Charles Conatzer Photo

Charles Conatzer Photo

MyNorthwest.com: When Chiara D’Angelo-Patricio learned developers planned to cut down 800 trees for a new Bainbridge Island shopping center, she burst into tears. Now, she’s taken to the treetops in hopes of halting the project.

The 19-year-old lifelong island resident scaled a 70-foot evergreen Monday morning and vows to stay up there as long as she can to protest the development at High School Road and Highway 305.

The new shopping center is expected to be home to a KeyBank branch, Bartell Drugs, restaurants and other businesses.

But Chiara argues the development isn’t needed and will have devastating impacts on local businesses. “I believe that Bainbridge needs more time to really express their frustrations with this mall and really take in what this mall is going to mean for our island, what it could mean for local businesses,” she said in an interview from the platform (made out of wood?) she erected in the treetops.

Opponents have unsuccessfully fought to stop the development for more than a year, and with logging set to begin on the property, the Western Washington University student decided it was time to act.

While she admits she’d love to see her protest stop the development, she admits the broader goal is to raise as much awareness as possible with ongoing rallies and a letter-writing campaign.

Nearly 100 people turned out for a candlelight vigil Saturday at the site, and dozens, including her mom Debra, were on hand to support her Monday from below. “I feel honored, that’s how I feel to call her my daughter,” Debra said. “We felt like somebody’s got to speak out and she did.”

Chiara won’t say how long she’s willing to stay up in the tree in what she says is the first tree-sit in the state since 1999.

“Right now, I’m feeling pretty right up here,” Chiara said. “I’m feeling pretty confident and pretty comfortable with my ground support, with the amount of food and water I have here, and really with my intention here. I feel really strong about my intention.” She also has a cell phone with a solar charger and a good book (made out of wood?) to keep her company.

But her intention might not get her very far. Ohio-based developer Visconsi had told the Bainbridge Island Police Department it planned to push for an arrest after 4 p.m. Monday, she said. Police have now given her until 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities did move a cherry picker to a site nearby the protest, but whether police can or will try to remove her from the tree remains to be seen. The company has not responded to a request for comment.

Chiara, an environmental justice major at WWU (see Duke professor: College leaves liberal students ill-equipped), says she’s always had a passion for the environment of Bainbridge, especially the waters of Puget Sound, and the mall protest is just part of her dedication to preserving a quality of life she says is threatened by increased development.

“I grew up feeling very nourished by this island and I’ve seen this island really shift and change and I think it’s really time for us to say keep Bainbridge, Bainbridge.”

What’s that guitar she’s got made out of, hemp? Does she live in a mud hut? Does she recycle her toilet paper? What are the food containers made out of that she has? Were no trees cut down for the cell phone tower for her phone? Did she get a permit for that wood platform? Practice what you preach honey.

While I applaud her for having a strong opinion, breaking the law is not the best way to take a stand. Maybe she should stick to the city permit process or better yet, run for council one day so she can save all the trees.

Officer Darren Wilson Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket”

Gateway Pundit has a new report., But before we get to that some words from our sponsor….er, me   :)

I wish they would just release whatever they have instead of this piecemeal crap.

I’d put another one in the “Dorian Johnson”  (Browns accomplice) A big fat stupid liars column.

Dorian Johnson should be arrested along with the atty who coached him in this vid. Watch as he says Brown shot in back. (Lie) Did not hit Wilson (Lie) And listen to the words he uses. The best is the big ole crocodile tears. NOT!

——————————————————————————————–

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

Umm, I think it's a generic type anybody scan

Umm, I think it’s a generic type anybody scan

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture. (AAPOS)

This comes after St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter tweeted out last night that a dozen local witnesses confirmed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the Brown shooting story.

Teachers union backs Sharpton’s planned anti-police rally

Two race baiters

Two race baiters

NY Post: The teachers union is pitting its members against cops — by sponsoring and promoting the Rev. Al Sharpton’s anti-police rally in Staten Island next week, The Post has learned.

The United Federation of Teachers sent an “action alert” ­e-mail that even promised free transportation to Sharpton’s Aug. 23 demonstration that is billed as a march for justice for “victims of police brutality.”

Some teachers were furious that the union would take such a prominent role in the event. “What a disgrace. What is going on with the leadership of the UFT thinking it’s OK to protest against rank-and-file cops?” asked one teacher. “Would we want cops protesting in front our schools over low test scores?”

The union is one of four sponsors of the rally, which will feature the family of Eric Garner — a 43-year-old who died last month after an NYPD chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes.

Sharpton’s National Action Network, the NAACP and local 1199 SEIU — a strong supporter of Mayor de Blasio — are also members of the coalition.

But the mayor won’t be attending the protest. He had earlier cautioned organizers against attempting to march en masse across the bridge, which has no pedestrian walkway.

“Mr. Garner’s death was a tragedy for the city,” UFT President Michael Mulgrew said when asked about the union’s involvement. “Teachers want to help ensure that something like this doesn’t happen again.”

March organizers said the union is not helping fund transportation across the Verrazano Bridge from Brooklyn.

One top NYPD union leader said he’s troubled by the UFT’s actions. “Mulgrew is always on the wrong side of the issues, and I’m not surprised,” said Ed Mullins, head of the police sergeants union. “The UFT has other issues. This is not their issue.”

A flier for the rally — attached to a UFT e-mail sent to its membership — proclaims the rally a ”March for Justice for Victims of Police Brutality!” It adds: “We Will Not Go Back.”

This wouldn’t be the first time the teachers union rallied against police action. Five hundred of its members joined a June 2012 march protesting the city’s unequal implementation of stop-and-frisk.
