New Jersey TV News 12 Reporter Sean Bergin Quits After Station Slashes Pay for Racist Comments … Actually It Was for Having the Courage to Call It Like He Sees It
ONCE AGAIN USING THE RACE CARD WHERE NO RACISM EXISTS …
The title of the video below is, ‘TV Reporter Sean Bergin Quits After Station Slashes Pay for Racist Comment’. Watch the video and determine if you can find the “racist” comments. Yup, neither could I. The fact of the matter is that Sean Bergin was suspended and his pay was cut causing him to quit after he dared take a stance against the growing crime and violence in inner cities. News 12 made him an offer he had to refuse. This is what is being called a racist comment, “The underlying cause for all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers.” REALLY?
A New Jersey news reporter was reportedly suspended Monday after he blamed anti-police sentiments among inner-city residents on “young black men growing up without fathers.”
News 12 reporter Sean Bergin was giving a live report about rookie Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was killed Sunday by suspect Lawrence Campbell, 27, in a shootout at a local Walgreens.
The station interviewed angry residents who had gathered at a makeshift memorial for Mr. Campbell, who was also killed in the shootout.
“He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” his widow, Angelique Campbell, told the station. “Sorry for the officer’s family. That’s, you know, whatever. But, at the end of the day, [Lawrence] got a family, too. All they care about is the officer.”
Mr. Bergin closed the report with a short monologue, that ultimately got him suspended,
“We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer,” he said. “It’s understandable. We decided to air it because it’s important to shine a light on this anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.
“This same sick, perverse line of thinking is evident from Jersey City to Newark and Patterson to Trenton,” he continued. “It has made the police officer’s job impossible, and it has got to stop. The underlying cause for all of this, of course, young black men growing up without fathers. Unfortunately, no one in the news media has the courage to touch that subject.”
One Year After George Zimmerman Acquittal in Death of Trayvon Martin, The Defense’s ‘Train Wreck’ Star Witness Rachel Jeantel Speaks Out
It was one year ago on July 13, 2013 that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin and the defense’s star witness, let’s rephrase that, train wreck witness Rachel Jeantel speaks out. In an interview with CNN, Jeantel discusses her regrets that she could have said things and acted differently while on the witness stand. She played the victim and blamed the jury for not taking her seriously. Jeantel said, “they judge how they talk, how they look, how they dress.” Jeantel was upset because she felt like she was being judged. ARE YOU KIDDING? Rachel dear, you were a witness in a murder trial. It was the jury’s job to determine whether you were telling the truth and your combative actions and the testimony that Martin told her he was being chased by a “creepy-ass cracker” was judged. Rachel, here is a free life lesson … we are all judged by our actions every day.
Jeantel was the prosecution’s star witness, yet her testimony was a combative, profanity-laced “train wreck” that likely contributed to Zimmerman’s acquittal.
Jeantel’s curt, colloquial language prompted attorneys to ask her to speak up and repeat herself time and again during the trial, eventually eliciting an exasperated, “Are you listening?” from Jeantel.
She told CNN this week that she wishes she had “acted different” on the witness stand.
We do hope that the experiences that Rachel Jeantel went through during the Zimmerman trial does turn her life around and makes her a better person. As stated in the video above, no one knew it at the time of her testimony, but “she was barely able to read and write at the level of a third grader. Whose fault is that exactly? We can blame public school and Rachel Jeantel as she resisted any efforts of tutoring because it took too long. However, it appears that she is trying to get her life together and has graduated high school. Good for her!
What happened to Rachel Jeantel was not a matter of a jury falsely judging a book by it’s cover. In 2013 when she took the witness stand Rachel’s book was her cover, no more, no less. Was she smart, no. Was she well versed, not on your life.
‘Creepy a** cracker is following me’
Rachel Jeantel Can’t Read Letter She ‘Wrote’ About Shooting: ‘I don’t read cursive’
Trayvon Trainwreck – Star Prosecuting Witness Implodes on the Stand – Rachel Jeantel
That is obvious, otherwise she would not have felt the need to change and better herself. People criticized her for her actions and the way she talked because they were horrified by your actions and speech that you thought nothing of. Personally, I blamed at the time the prosecutors more than I did Jeantel because I could never have imagined anyone thinking that she would be a good witness. More so, did they do any coaching?
We can only hope that something good comes from the George Zimmerman murder trail and maybe that is that Rachel Jeantel woke up, grew up and got her life on track.
Good Grief, Intollerant LEFT at it Again … Say Obama Outhouse Float at 4th of July Parade Was ‘Racist’
IT WAS NOT RACIST!!! DISRESPECTFUL YES, RACIST … NO!!!
Angry Democrats cry racism to a float in a 4th of July parade in Norfolk, NE depicting Barack Obama standing next to an outhouse labeled, “Presidential Library”. Um, how exactly is this racist? But that does not stop the Democrat lunatic fringe is at it again calling anything that may mock President Barack Obama as racist. Norfolk City Councilman Dick Pfeil told the World-Herald that the city “doesn’t condone” the float, but it just shows how out of touch this politician is, one of the parade’s organizers, Rick Konopasek said the outhouse was the most popular float in the parade, and that it earned an “honorable mention” from three judges. Actually, according to the Journal Star, the float got the greatest amount of cheers.
But this is how the LEFT tries to squelch free speech … cry racism. Sorry, this is getting really tired and old. Oh what a shock, people are offended at Obama being mocked. Where were they during the GWB presidency? The outhouse could easily say America, instead of Obama presidential library, as this president has done everything possible to put us in the crapper.
Pic can be seen HERE.
A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party.
The float, in the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb., was affixed to trailer being towed behind a blue pickup truck. The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.
The pickup truck and the float did not identify a sponsor, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
In a statement, the Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen,” according to the World-Herald.
The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” Really, just curious, how is a float of a president standing next to an outhouse labeled “Presidential Library” racists? Seriously, someone enlighten me. Personally, I am sick of every criticism of the “worst president since WWII” being called racist.
Sorry, but I find this humorous and it is nothing more than political humor. No different than the LEFT ridiculing former Republic President George W. Bush with his presidential library when they stated, why would he need a library, he can’t read. That was kinda funny. Bush even embraced his vocal gaffes by claiming that “English was his second language”. But of course the same people crying foul over anything mocking Obama were laughing gleefully at any form of ridicule of George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and any conservative for that fact. What is actually racist is when any conservative who happens to be black is called an Uncle Tom. Racism is when you say about South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy.” Or when a Democrat Congressman blasts Tim Scott for not voting according to the color of his skin … THAT IS RACIST!
“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Rev. William Barber II said of South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott, according to South Carolina’s The State. “[T]he extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”
From the Political Carnival … If George W. Bush’s name was replaced with Barack Obama, would that be deemed racist?
Hmm, what did the Democrats have to say about the following hate toward GWB? I believe this was a tad bit worse than an outhouse and Obama. But just another example of liberal intolerance and double standard.
O.J. Simpson: 20 Years Since the Murders of Nicole Brown Simpson & Ron Goldman… After Midnight on the Morning of June 13, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were Found Murdered Outside her Home in Los Angeles, CA
It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. The two were found brutally murdered outside of her home in Los Angeles, CA.
Long after the so-called “not guilty” verdict of O J Simpson in the horrific murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman so many questions still remain. There was a mountain of evidence, including DNA, that should have made this a slam dunk case. However, in what was probably the greatest example ever of jury nullification, a jury acquitted OJ Simpson in the double murders. Of course, common sense and rational people knew then and know now much different. The murder trial of O.J Simpson was dubbed, The Trial of the Century. But sadly, instead of the trial being about finding justice for Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, for their brutal and savage murders, the Defense ‘Dream Team’ sought to make the trial about race and pulled the race card out from the bottom of the deck. The trial divided America. The verdict was a travesty of justice and for all those involved in that travesty, and applauded that travesty … God help you.
Remember Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murdered 6/12/94
To many, particularly in minority communities, the trial of Orenthal James Simpson became not so much a determination of his guilt or innocence of murder in the first degree, beyond a reasonable doubt, but whether or not a black man could find justice in a legal system designed by and largely administered by whites. To others, many of whom were white, the key question was whether a mostly minority jury would convict a black celebrity regardless of the weight of evidence against him.
Ron Goldman’s father: Son’s death is ‘like yesterday’
“It’s like yesterday,” said Fred Goldman on TODAY Wednesday. His son, Ron Goldman, was murdered along with Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. “The loss is exactly the same. Nothing has changed.”
Years after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders, questions remain about what happened 20 years ago this month and how an apparently strong case with “a mountain of DNA evidence” failed result in a conviction.
Shortly after midnight on the morning of June 13, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were found murdered outside her home in Los Angeles. Evidence on the scene led police to suspect O.J. Simpson of the murders, and Simpson’s lawyers arranged for him to turn himself in on the morning of June 17.
Soon after Simpson failed to appear at the allotted time, police issued an all-points bulletin. Early that evening, a bizarre low-speed chase ensued, with up to 20 police cars pursuing Simpson in his white Bronco, driven by his friend Al Cowlings, while media helicopters televised the chase nationwide. The chase ended at Simpson’s house, where he eventually surrendered peacefully.
Simpson’s trial on two counts of murder began in January 1995 and ended with his acquittal more than eight months later.
Most people focus on the cute tag line by the late defense attorney Johnny Cochran when O.J Simpson was asked to put on the bloody gloves, “If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit”. There is a general rule withing the legal industry that a lawyer is never to ask a question they do not already know the answer to. Assistant DA Darden blew this one.
However, folks may want to better remember where that bloody golf came from, the gruesome crime scene where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were stabbed to death. Where Nicole’s head was nearly severed from her body. Take a good look at that bloody glove, doesn’t seem so cute with “if it doesn’t fit” does it? What doesn’t fit is that an obviously guilty individual was set free. WARNING – DISTURBING AND GRAPHIC PHOTOS: pics here of crime scene.
16 months after the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman on June 12, 1994, a jury found there was not enough evidence against O.J. Simpson to convict him. But there was plenty of evidence the jury didn’t see.
- Nicole’s best friend Kris Jenner said Nicole told her just weeks before the murders, “He’s gonna kill me, and he’s gonna get away with it.”
- Two other key witnesses told police they saw O.J. Simpson soon after the killings. Jill Shively said, “All of a sudden, a white car comes flying north on Bundy, and I barely miss him. It was O.J. Simpson.” But Shively never testified because she sold her story to the press.
- Jurors never heard, either, from Skip Junis, who said he saw the former football star and actor at the airport later that night. “He was carrying this little, cheap gym bag, and was pulling things out and dumping ‘em in the trash can,” he said.
- There was also a suicide note, read by Simpson’s close friend Robert Kardashian. It was never heard in court. Neither did 911 recordings from the police’s famous low-speed chase of the white Bronco on Los Angeles highways.
Receipt Racism … Tennessee Man Sues Red Lobster & Waitress for Falsely Accusing Him of Writing Racial Slur “Ni**er” on Receipt
Tennessee man sues Red Lobster for $1 million for falsely accusing him of writing racial slur on receipt … Hires handwriting expert to clear his name.
Devin Barnes is suing Red Lobster and the waitress that served him for falsely accusing him of writing a racial slur “NI**ER” on his receipt in place of writing a tip amount. Barnes is suing the waitress, Toni Jenkins for posting his personal information on the Internet and for receiving about $11,000 in donations based on the story and the lawsuit is asking for a jury trial and $1 million in damages. Barnes hired a hand writing expert to review the receipt and help clear his name from this damaging accusation. At least two experts believed this to be a hoax. Barnes admitted to writing the word “none
Weeks ago, Barnes’ attorney and pastor, Richard Dugger, hired an independent handwriting expert who compared the receipt with samples provided by Barnes and his wife.
“There is no evidence that neither Devin Barnes nor his wife wrote that hideous statement on the line total, which means that someone else did,” Dugger said.
The incident occurred in September 2013 when Devin Barnes ate at the Red Lobster in Cool Spring, Tennessee. Barnes stated that he was running tight on time, so he had his waitress put the meal into a to-go container. When he paid the bill, he wrote “none” under tip. What followed would change his life forever. Toni Jenkins, a Red Lobster waitress, posted on Facebook a photo of a receipt from customer Devin Barnes with his personal information was on a receipt where someone had written the n-word.
In court on Thursday, Barnes filed suit against the waitress, Toni Jenkins, and Red Lobster, claiming that Barnes and his family have suffered because of the situation.
According to the court filing, they have expert testimony from a handwriting analyst to prove Barnes didn’t write the racial slur on the receipt.
Barnes is suing Jenkins for posting his personal information on the Internet and for receiving about $11,000 in donations based on the story.
He also contends the restaurant didn’t do enough to contain the situation.
In response, the restaurant chain said in a statement that, “it is against our policy to post guest information online. Our standard procedure is to suspend the employee involved with pay while we determine what happened. After the completion of a full investigation into this matter, Ms. Jenkins returned to work.”
The lawsuit is asking for a jury trial and $1 million in damages.
The Daily Caller: Waitress, Red Lobster Sued For $1 Million In Alleged Race Hoax.
But two handwriting experts who looked at the receipt and at writing samples from Barnes, his wife, and Jenkins determined that it was unlikely that the couple had written the slur.
The expert hired by Barnes and his attorney concluded that both Barnes and his wife were unlikely to have written the slur.
Another expert, contacted by The Daily Caller News Foundation, analyzed the receipt, comparing it to a copy of a writing sample from Jenkins. The expert determined that “within a reasonable degree of certainty” Jenkins had written the slur.
Jenkins responded at the time telling TheDCNF that she no longer believed that Barnes had written the word.
She said she would apologize to Barnes but maintained that she did not write the word either.
Asked if she planned to share any of the donations she received with Barnes, Jenkins said “Honestly I would…if there was any left.”
Hopefully Red Lobster and this waitress will be successfully sued to put an end to this crime of “Racism by Hoax”.
Political Correctness Has Jumped the Shark … Hump Day Camel now Considered Racist & Racially Insensitive
Political Correctness Has Jumped the
Shark Camel … WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN: PC EDITION.
The latest absurd PC reaction comes from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota and their “HUMP DAY” event. A group of students had planned to bring a camel to the “Hump” day event; however, the event was canceled. Some clueless students thought that bringing a camel would be considered racist and offensive and racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures. I think all I have to say to both sides is grow a set. It’s a frigging camel you so-called college educated fools. Hump Day, camel’s hump, get the connection? Maybe the RHA should have brought to the event a Humpback whale, or Quasimodo or Igor from Young Frankenstein? But some how I think the subtlety would be lost on the ignorant or some one would have been offended by individuals with humps.
Enough is enough, I am sick and tired of running everyday life over who might be offended. Newsflash, there will always be some one that will be offended by something. Imagine if we never produced a drug to help people survive with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol and any other malady because of the side affects harmed just one person? Ever take a look at any drug and the long list of side affects? That is what PC has become in the United States. You know what is offensive, kidnapping girls and forcing Islam upon them and selling them into sex slavery, honor killing and sentencing a pregnant Christian woman to death by hanging for leaving Islam. THAT’S OFFENSIVE!!!
BTW, no one seemed to find the used of a bull or a pie eating contest at the Southern Hospitality event. How offensive, are you saying people from the South are obese and are rednecks who just ride mechanical bulls like in the movie Urban Cowboy? But I guess that is different.
The “Hump Day” event, put on by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), was supposed to be “a petting zoo type of atmosphere” in which students could hang out and take photos with a live camel. According to Aaron Macke, the group’s advisor, the camel is owned by a local vendor and trained for special events.
But the event was subsequently cancelled after students took to Facebook to proclaim their concerns. The students said they were concerned about the money spent on bringing the camel to campus—around $500—and the implication that it would be racially insensitive to Middle Eastern cultures.
The Facebook group called “Protest Hump DAAAAAAY!” had more than 100 RSVP’d attendees before it was deleted on Wednesday.
“RHA’s goal in programming is to bring residents together in a fun and safe environment where all people can enjoy themselves,” RHA president Lindsay Goodwin said in a statement on RHA’s Facebook page. “It appears however, this program is dividing people and would make for an uncomfortable and possibly unsafe environment for everyone attending or providing the program. As a result, RHA has decided to cancel the event.”
GET REAL!!! I guess you are going to tell is that the GEICO “Guess what day it is” Hump day commercial is racist and culturally insensitive as well? Come on folks, is this the kind of people that we are breading in colleges today? No one had a picture of Allah and placed it in urine or spread feces on it. No one burned a Koran. No one had a scene of Allah with a camel in a compromising position. All those would be considered offensive. However, when the same things are done with Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary, it is called free speech art.
70% of Americans Support Voter ID Laws, Including 51% of Blacks … Why Are Democrats Lawmakers & Obama Against the Will of the American People and Preventing Voter Fraud?
So I guess Democrat law makers and co-called Black leaders would tell you that 70% of Americans are racist.
According to a recent Fox News Poll, 70% of Americans polled agree that there should be voter ID laws passed that required an valid state or federal photo identification in order to be allowed to vote. The survey found that a majority of every demographic supported such a law, including 91% of Republicans, 66% of Independents and even 55% of Democrats. However, many Democratic lawmakers, Black activists and organizations are opposed to strict voter identification laws, claiming they are largely unnecessary and discourage minority voting. They even claim those that would want such a law are hateful, racist and only looking to suppress the minority vote. Of course one needs a valid state or federal ID to cash a check, board an airplane, buy alcohol, obtain a driver’s license at the DMV, any banking transaction including opening an account, obtain SSI disability, buy a gun, donating blood, buy cigarettes, get a US passport, attain unemployment benefits, obtaining a carry gun permit, adopt a child and even buy Sudafed from your local pharmacy. But some how requiring one to do something as important as vote is a burden to minorities. Here is the money line to the poll, 51% of African Americans support voter ID laws, while 46% oppose the laws. Does this mean that the 51% of blacks are racist?
Seven in 10 registered voters are in favor of identification laws in order to root out fraud at the ballot box, according to a Fox News poll released this week.
The survey found majority support in every major demographic, including black voters and Democrats.
The 70 percent who support voter ID laws remains largely unchanged in the past few years. Another 27 percent believe the laws are unnecessary.
The issue has resurfaced recently as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Republicans should not go too crazy over the law because they are offending people, African-Americans in particular.
He later clarified he believes the laws should not be a defining issue for Republicans, and they should be left up to the states to decide. A total of 31 states have active voter identification laws, while a handful of others have recently been struck down in state courts.
The survey found majorities of every demographic support the law. Ninety-one percent of Republicans offer support, and 66 percent of independents feel the same.
Doesn’t make one wonder why when pretty much everything in this country requires a photo ID, including to buy, own and carry a gun (a right protected in the US Constitution) that making sure that there are fair elections with no fraud would be opposed by Democrats? So are they pro-voter fraud? But then again, this is coming from the party that is perfectly fine with letting illegals into the United States and then letting them out of jail after committing crimes. If individuals think that minorities cannot some how get a photo ID, maybe something needs to be looked into that as a problem, rather than calling voter ID laws racist.
As stated at TPPN, “All in all, the case against voter ID laws is not only flimsy, it’s downright laughable in its ridiculousness.”
AG Eric Holder Plays the Race Card at Sharpton’s National Action Network Conference About How Congress Treated Him
What a shock, Attorney General plays the victim and the race card …
While speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder complained about how he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, namely Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), played the race card, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Holder stated that his and Barack Obama’s treatment by Congress has been unprecedented to his Al Sharpton crowd. Hmm, what ever could he be implying? Really Holder, call the “wahmbulance”. Holder may want to do some Google searches on how past GOP presidents were treated, he may learn something. But, liberals are always the victim and in Holder’s case, throw a little racism on the fire to continue the divide and conquer strategy as the Obama administrations fails America.
Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama.
“The last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms even in the face, even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity,” Holder said. “If you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me. You look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee — has nothing to do with me, forget that. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”
Holder goes off script and plays the victim during a speech he gave Wednesday to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
Holder vs. Gohmert, “Don’t Go There”
Attorney General Eric Holder lashed out a bit at Louis Gohmert yesterday during a contentious exchange, snapping, “You don’t want to go there, buddy.” Holder’s clearly steamed about the back-and-forth, and brought it up during a speech he gave Wednesday to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The Justice Department posted the transcript of Holder’s remarks as prepared for delivery, but Holder went off-script a bit to take a shot at the Republican congressman.
In the end, Eric Holder would have been fired under any other administration for the poor job that he has done. Holder has provided no justice in ‘Fast & Furious’, ‘Benghazi’ or the IRS scandal of targeting Conservative and Tea Party groups. However, when his job is to obstruct and protect Barack Obama’s bacon from impeachment and his connection to these scandals, Holder is doing a fantastic job and thus the reason why he is still employed. Maybe the reason why, as Holder says, “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” is because we have never had such a corrupt and imperial administration?
The Left & Blacks Become Unhinged Over Lakers Kobe Bryant’s Comments on Trayvon Martin Case … He Doesn’t Support Defending Someone Just Because They are Black
The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant is about to feel the wrath of what happens when you do not go along with the “black/left” company line …
In an interview with The New Yorker, Kobe Bryant discussed his reaction to when members of the Miami Heat wore “hoodies” in Trayvon Martin’s memory saying he admitted he’s not comfortable with the idea of being compelled to defend someone just because they’re black. Trayvon Martin was the black teen who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. After a long, divisive and contentious trial, Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murder. Although the part of the interview that discusses the Trayvon Martin passages are only available to subscribers, the money lines were reprinted at The Blaze and Mediaite.
Discussing the divisive Trayvon Martin case in an interview with The New Yorker, NBA star Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t support defending someone just because they are black.
He appeared to be referring to the aftermath of the shooting death of Martin. Many people and political commentators seemingly rushed to assume George Zimmerman was guilty of murder before a trial ever occurred. One of the topics discussed was how members of the Miami Heat wore hoodies in Martin’s memory two years ago.
“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American. That argument doesn’t make any sense to me,” Bryant said. “So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”
Who knew Kobe Bryant was a racist? [sarcasm intended].
And the Left & Blacks expressed their outrage on Twitter for one black man’s opinion that color should not be the issue, the facts should. Hmm, you mean support for Trayvon was not racial solidarity, Really? It was a tragic set of events where two people should have never crossed paths, but everything about the George Zimmerman – Trayvon martin case was racial, down the the media doctoring 911 tapes and Zimmerman being referred to as a “white” Hispanic. And there is nothing racial when the Revs. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson are on the scene. Add the NBPP as well putting a bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Yup, no racial solidarity before a JURY SPOKE WHAT-SO-EVER.
I guess if Barack Obama had a son, it would not be Kobe Bryant.
Bi-Partisan Senate Vote Rejects Obama Nominee, Cop-Killer Atty. Debo Adegbile, to Lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division
A stinging bi-partisan vote defeat for Barack Obama … Sorry, but actions have consequences.
In a 47 to 52 vote in the US Senate, Republicans were joined by seven Democrats voting to continue a filibuster of Debo Adegbile’s nomination for the influential post, to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.Yes, the same Debo Adegbile, who represented cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was found guilty in 1981 of killing police officer Daniel Faulkner and turned the case into a racially-charged political cause-celeb, and, in doing so, went far beyond his duties as a lawyer to zealously represent his client.
As Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated, Those Who Advocate For Cop Killers Aren’t Suited For Leadership at DOJ.
But not too much for Barack Obama to nominate …
Just what we did not need in the Civil Rights department enforcing the nation’s anti-discrimination laws, a lawyer as Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey led the charge against Adegbile’s nomination,“Under Mr. Adegbile’s oversight, LDF lawyers promoted the pernicious myth that Abu-Jamal was an innocent man, that he was framed because of his race.” Unproven allegations of racism reversed a cop-killers sentence. So I guess Barack Obama will call the following Democratic Senators racists and playing Washington politics, Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Joe Manchin (WV), Mark Pryor (AR), Joe Donnelly (IN), John Walsh (MT), Chris Coons (DE) and Bob Casey Jr. (PA), who voted with Republicans to block the nomination of Adegbile.
The Senate rejected President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division on Wednesday in a stunning 47-52 vote in which seven Democrats abandoned their leadership.
The vote was all the more remarkable for the five Democrats in tough reelection races this year who voted in vain to move Debo Adegbile’s nomination forward.
Their votes now become ammunition for Senate Republicans, who argued Adegbile was unfit to serve because of his legal work in support of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia
police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981.
The vote was a stinging defeat for the White House that showed President Obama is politically out of step with some centrist Democrats heading into the midterm elections.
“He represents the best of the legal profession,” and if you like your cop-killing lawyer, you can keep him …
The response from the community agitator … Barack Obama defended his disgusting pick to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. Sorry Mr. President, this sick pick to further politicize the Justice Dept. and push it further left has failed. Even Democrats could not back your pick. Wow, if this is the best of the legal profession, the profession just sunk even lower.
Obama labeled the vote a “travesty” based on “wildly unfair” character attacks.
“Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable. He represents the best of the legal profession, with wide-ranging experience, and the deep respect of those with whom he has worked,” Obama said. “As a lawyer, Mr. Adegbile has played by the rules. And now, Washington politics have used the rules against him.”
