HOW CLASSY … WAY TO WIN HEARTS AND MINDS …
During a live interview in Ferguson, MO amidst the unrest on the one anniversary of Michael Brown being shot by a police officer after having attacked him, some of the protesters show their true colors and classlessness by chanting “F@ck the police”. Usually paper is considered the gift of choice for a one year anniversary; however, in the case of Ferguson it is bullets and profanity.
I wonder why these brave souls can’t show their faces as they make their vulgar chants?

On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death … Tensions Flare in Ferguson, MO as Crowd of 50 People Looted Stores in the St. Louis Suburb
I guess this is how an anniversary is remembered of a movement that was based upon a lie …
Looting and gunfire commemorate the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Enough of the talking points of the so-called unarmed teen who was shot by former police officer Darren Wilson. When some one is attacking a police officer and going after their gun, the unarmed adjective used to describe Michael Brown is a misnomer. The subsequent reports to this incident showed that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong and it was Michael Brown that was the aggressor. As Bill Maher stated, he was hardly a gentle giant as the liberal media and race-baiting activists would have us believe. That being said, it is always sad when some one young dies, but one must also act accordingly and mitigate their damages. How sad is it that on the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown and the birth of the faux movement, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” that it be remembered with a flurry of gun shots and looting.
Tensions flared in the US city of Ferguson late Sunday as looters targeted at least one store following a day of somber remembrance to mark the anniversary of the police shooting of an unarmed black teen.
A crowd of about 50 people looted a beauty store in the St. Louis suburb and protesters grew confrontational late in the evening. There was no immediate word of any arrests.
Demonstrators had taken to the streets of Ferguson to mark the anniversary of 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death in a fateful encounter on August 9, 2014 with officer Darren Wilson.
The shooting — and a subsequent decision not to indict Wilson — led to violent unrest and set off nationwide protests and intense scrutiny of heavy-handed police tactics in a series of cases that ended in the deaths of unarmed blacks.
Sunday’s day of remembrance had been peaceful until a handful of protesters grew rowdy later in the evening. A crowd of about 300 people had gathered earlier to mark the anniversary, during which they observed four and a half minutes of silence and released two white doves.
On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death in Ferguson, MO … Man Shot by Police Officers After He Fired on Them
So we are having a one year anniversary of an individual who attacked a police officer and was killed?
On the one year anniversary of the faux “hands up, don’t shoot” death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the day was marred with gun fire and bullets shot at police officers. The violence broke out at about 11 pm when shots were fired at the police. The police responded by firing back and shooting the unidentified man who fired on them. St. Louis County Police Department Chief Jon Belmar explained that two groups exchanged gunfire on the west side of W. Florissant near the Sam’s Market in Ferguson, amid a protest marking Brown’s death. The unidentified gunman was shot by the police. As reported at the NY Times, a gun that the police recovered from the shooting victim was a 9-milimeter Sig Sauer that they said was reported stolen last year. Chief Belmar said that the four detectives who had shot the man had between six and 12 years of experience, but he declined to provide information about their race. Imagine that? The gang violence that continues in Ferguson as seen by the actions of this shooter show what the real issue is in Ferguson.
Where was Al Sharpton, what can’t make any race-bating hay off this anymore?
A peaceful day of protest and remembrance dissolved into chaos late Sunday when a man fired multiple shots at four St. Louis County plainclothes detectives in an SUV. The detectives fired back and the shooter was struck, said county Police Chief Jon Belmar. He was in critical condition.
Tyrone Harris identified the victim as his son, Tyrone Harris Jr., 18, of St. Louis. Harris said shortly after 3 a.m. that his son had just gotten out of surgery.
He said his son graduated from Normandy High School and that he and Michael Brown Jr. “were real close.”
“We think there’s a lot more to this than what’s being said,” Harris Sr. said.
In a 2:30 a.m. press conference, Belmar said there is a “small group of people out there that are intent on making sure we don’t have peace that prevails.
“We can’t sustain this as a community,” he said.
A male from one of those groups left, walked across the street, and stopped on the shoulder. Four plainclothes officers in an SUV saw that person, and pulled their vehicle out. The suspect opened fire on the car, hitting the grill and windshield.
The detectives got out of their vehicle when the suspect turned and fired at them, prompting the detectives to shoot back, police said. The detectives chased the suspect on foot. When the suspect reengaged the detectives, they shot the suspect multiple times.
The unidentified suspect has been described as approximately 20 years old and in critical condition. Meanwhile, the officers were placed on administrative leave.
A stolen firearm was recovered from the scene, according to authorities.
So now we make special moments of individuals who attack police officers? Remember folks that Officer Darren Wilson was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Even uber-libs like Bill Maher mocked the news reports that this kid was some “Gentle Giant”. The whole Hands Up Dont Shoot was a lie. But that did not stop the liberal media and race-baiters from destroying Officer Wilson’s life. All based on a lie.
Is it really an anniversary if the original event was based upon a lie?
Police Dash-Cam Video in Connecticut Debunks College Professor Minati Roychoudhuri’s Claims of Racial Profiling
OH THOSE PESKY DASH CAMS … LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE.
32 year old Minati Roychoudhuri, a college professor at Capital Community College, in Hartford, CT, accused the Connecticut state police of racial profiling after she was pulled over on May 9, 2015 in Weathersfield. However, her ticket she was given stated her vehicular citation was for failure to drive in the established lane. Of course in the attack police at all chances and call them racist environment, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her. As it turns out, the incident was caught on the police dash-cam that proved the 32 year old community college professor was lying through her teeth. Roychoudhuri was subsequently arrested for giving a false statement in the second degree.
Not too smart for a college professor … hopefully the kids she teaches are more honest
A college professor who accused a Connecticut state trooper of racial profiling saw her claims fail when audiotape of the stop proved she was lying, police said.
According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited for failure to drive in the established lane. A month later, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her.
“The policeman asked me if I could speak English and if I knew why he had stopped me. I said, “yes” to speaking English and “no” to why he had stopped me,” she wrote in the letter. “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me.”
When Roychoudhuri, who teaches at Capital Community College, in Hartford, gave an in-person interview in regards to her letter a week later, she repeated her claims of racial profiling and that the officer did not explain why she was stopped. She also signed a statement that it is a crime for her to make any claims that she does not believe to be true in an effort to mislead a public servant.

Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today?
Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration.
Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?
In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.
As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.
Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.
A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.
The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.
Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.
BARACK OBAMA, THE POVERTY PRESIDENT … IMAGINE THAT, MORE CHILDREN IN POVERTY TODAY THAN DURING 2008 RECESSION.
Since Barack Obama has become president, 3 million more children live in poverty, including an amazing number of black children. So much for the first black president changing the conditions for black American children, instead he has made matters worse. This is simply criminal, especially as this president has caused division among the races and promoted class warfare. Yet, Obama has done nothing to help the poor and those in poverty, even with his redistribution of wealth. There is a reason why Obama is known as the food stamp president. This is a kin to child abuse. Imagine what the MSM news headlines would be if a white Republican president had resided under such conditions for black and Hispanic children? Obama is simply an epic failure and will go down as the worst president in history.
But blacks and Hispanics continue to vote For Democrats in droves as their lives are made more miserable by their liberal agenda. If this same data occurred during the presidency of a Republican the media would be asking, why does the GOP hate children.
Ever since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday.
The 2015 “KIDS COUNT” report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013. It added that the rate dropped from 2012 to 2013, in line with the improving economy.
• The child poverty rate among African Americans (39 percent) was more than double the rate for non-Hispanic whites (14 percent) in 2013.
• In 2013, three in 10 children (22.8 million) lived in families where no parent had full-time, year-round employment. Since 2008, the number of such children climbed by nearly 2.7 million.
• Roughly half of all American Indian children (50 percent) and African-American children (48 percent) had no parent with full-time, year-round employment in 2013, compared with 37 percent of Latino children, 24 percent of non-Hispanic white children and 23 percent of Asian and Pacific Islander children.”
More from USA Today ... So much for the war on poverty.
“The fact that it’s happening is disturbing on lots of levels,” said Laura Speer, the associate director for policy reform and advocacy at the Casey Foundation, a non-profit based in Baltimore. “Those kids often don’t have the access to the things they need to thrive.” The foundation says its mission is to help low-income children in the U.S. by providing grants and advocating for policies that promote economic opportunity.
The report examined data from several federal agencies ranging from 2008 to 2013 to assess state-by-state trends of 16 factors of children’s well-being, including economics, education, health and family and community. It found that one in four children — a total of 18.7 million kids — lived in low-income households in 2013; low-income families were defined as those who use more than 30% of their pre-tax income for housing.
The report also examined racial disparities between children living in low-income households. Black, Hispanic and American Indian children were more than twice as likely to live in poverty than white children, the report said.

Kid Rock Tells People that are Protesting Him & Al Sharpton’s Action Network Demanding He Denounce the Confederate Flag to “Kiss His Ass”!!!
LAST TIME A CHECKED THIS WAS STILL AMERICA, KID ROCK IS CORRECT, THEY CAN KISS HIS ASS …
We have now reached critical mass insanity when a flag becomes more important and to blame for all the ills of racism and what has happened to blacks in this country, than the individual and vile acts of people and the liberal laws and policies that have caused blacks to be forever dependent on the government. Personally, I could care less about the Confederate battle flag, I am from the North. That being said, what is up with the bullying over demanding that private citizens of the United States be forced to do something, or else?
Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has publicly called on Kid Rock to denounce the Confederate flag and stop using it during his performances, claiming the flag is a racist symbol. Kid Rock responded to the group’s request in a statement that Fox News host Megyn Kelly read on the air Wednesday night, well read most of. Kid Rock said … “Please tell the people who are protesting to kiss my ass”.
Good for Kid Rock, some one has to stand up to these race-bating bullies. The Detroit chapter of National Action Network (NAN), the NYC based group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, also sent a letter requesting a meeting with Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors, which is sponsoring Rock’s summer tour. So if Kid Rock wont kneel down to these fools, they are going to look to extort and harass his sponsors. How unlike Al Sharpton. All these clowns got is some cutely phrased words calling Kid Rock, a home town Detroit hero who is a hero with the Confederate flag. Really? Just curious, when was the last time Kid Rock even used a Confederate flag in concert? Does it even matter to these people?
The Rev. Charles Williams II, who heads the Detroit activist group, insisted that GM withdraw its support from Rock, saying the flag represents racism and hatred.
Rock told the Free Press in 2002 that he used the flag during that year’s tour as a nod to Southern rock and a rebel spirit. It’s unclear how recently Rock has displayed Confederate flag imagery in concert, but some fans have told the Free Press it has not appeared onstage in several years, including Rock’s current tour.
UPDATE I: A note to these idiots who would go after a flag because its easy to deflect attention away from their own failings to their people and the liberal politics that has devastated and destroyed the city of Detroit over the years. To show you how misguided and how absurd all of this is, in 2011 Kid Rock received the organization’s Great Expectations Award, honoring him for his advocacy of Detroit city. He did so by attending with his teenage son Robert Ritchie Jr., who is black, the 56th Annual NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner at Cobo Hall on May 1, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan. Note to all, it was the NAACP who gave Kid Rock this award and guess what, he was using the Stars and Bars back then as well.
UPDATE II: Don’t forget that Kid Rock played in Washington, DC celebrating the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009. No one seemed to care of his use of of the Confederate flag back then. However, since then Kid Rock has basically called Obama a disappointment and a failure as the country has never been more divided. Hey Kid, that is what community agitators do.

TV Land Pulls Dukes of Hazzard TV Show from Its Schedule … Remember When it was OK to Just Watch TV?
THE UNITED STATES HAS OFFICIALLY LOST ITS PC MIND … WHO KNEW DAISY DUKE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EVILS OF RACISM.
Just when you thought liberal thought and political correctness could not get any worse in the United States, it did. Yesterday, TV Land pulled the TV show, ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off their programming schedule. In the wake of the church shooting in South Carolina and the agenda driven attack on the Confederate flag, the Dukes of Hazzard was made to be a scape goat in the out of control PC land we live in. UNREAL. So now an 80′s TV show that was a comedy is too offensive. As stated at RWN, Remember how ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ was a hotbed of racism and Confederate sympathy? Yeah. Me neither. Let this be a lesson to Americans that are apathetic and asleep at the wheel. Is racism a terrible thing and should the church shooter who killed 9 innocent black church goers an evil individual who should be put down like a rabid animal, yes. However, the LEFT had much more in mind and has exploited this terrible mass shooting for its own agenda.
Following the shootings in Charleston at the hands of a racist, Charleston and the families of the victims stood strong in unison against what Dylann Roof stood for and marched together. The families of those murdered even proclaimed they forgave Roof and prayed for him. For as much as what the good people of Charleston did and stood for following this heinous act, the same cannot be said who have acted in such a cowardly manner. Yes, that includes you TV Land.
TV Land has pulled reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard off its schedule, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to EW on Wednesday.
The network did not comment further or say why the episodes were removed, but the news comes as the show became part of the growing national debate over use of the Confederate flag, which is displayed on the roof of the Duke boys’ car.
Last week, Warner Bros. Consumer Products said it would no longer license toys or models of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, dubbed General Lee, joining a number of other retailers vowing to stop selling Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of the deadly shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this month.
So what’s next on the Liberals agenda to ban … Gone with the Wind? What other TV shows and movies will be found too offensive for the delicate constitutions of the LEFT? Hey, while you are at it, ban the move Glory, they showed Confederate flags in that one too. Does the LEFT even have a clue what the move was about?
Any TV network with a brain would buy the rights to the syndicated broadcasts of the Dukes of Hazzard and make a mint. At what point will there be a backlash to this over the top nonsense, much like what happened when the LEFT and gay activists tried to target Chick Fil-A?
