I Will Soon List The Top Ten White Racist Race Baiters (No, Bill Bennett Will Not Be Listed)
I Am Not Sure Who To List,Yet, But I Am Thinking They Will All Be Democrats. Please, post suggestions.
Here is a condensed version of those who dread any peace between races in America, as any sort of peace between Blacks and Whites would put their careers to an immediate end.

10th Ranked Racist Race Baiter
John Conyers September 2005: Conyers is one of the most prolific Congressional race baiters in America, and he proved it today by distorting Bill Bennett's abortion remark crying out for Bennett's firing. From Conyers letter to the President Of Salem Radio. "We were shocked and outraged to learn that, on your radio network today, Bill Bennett stated on his radio program, Bill Bennett's Morning in America, "I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime you could -- if that were your sole purpose -- you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." [Ed. I don't believe Democrats are smart enough to understand contextual statements, or two syllable words, either, for that matter. Remember, Bill, you have Public School graduates listening to your program always looking to trump up a charge of racism over something they cannot comprehend - like your radio program. JC]
John Conyers mentions trillions of dollars and Marshall-type plans (which must occur, and many times over) and calls for the transfer of "millions and millions of acres of land." "Every Year Since 1989 Reparations For Millions In January of 1989, I first introduced the bill H.R. 40, Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act. I have re-introduced HR 40 every Congress since 1989, and will continue to do so until it's passed into law. I chose the number of the bill, 40, as a symbol of the forty acres and a mule that the United States initially promised freed slaves. This unfulfilled promise and the serious devastation that slavery had on African-American lives has never been officially granted by the United States Government." John Conyers

Harry Belafonte Tied With Maxine Waters October 2002: Interviewed on a Californian radio station earlier this week, Belafonte said: "In the days of slavery there were those slaves who lived on the plantation, and those slaves who lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master, exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell is committed to come into the house of the master."
Maxine Waters November 2002: Maxine Waters just noted on MSNBC that Lott voted for Thurman in 1948 and still supports his separatist platform today. Well, he was about 8 years old in 1948, not of voting age or likely to be absorbing Thurman's policies.
Lott issued several apologies, which Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) initially said he believed to be sincere.
"I accept that," Daschle told reporters. "There are a lot of times when he and I go to the microphone, would like to say things we meant to say differently, and I'm sure this is one of those cases for him, as well."
But Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who is also a member of the CBC, criticized Daschle for accepting Lott's explanation.
"Daschle spoke very quickly to put the fire out," Waters said, "so let him take the heat."
Waters said Democratic leaders should support the caucus in its outrage over Lott's remarks to demonstrate the Democratic Party's concern for African-Americans all of the time, not just when their votes are needed during elections.
8th Ranked Racist Race Baiter
Kweisi Mfume Tied With Al Sharpton July 2004: Last week Democrat NAACP boss Kweisi Mfume accused Bush of treating blacks like prostitutes and of wanting to "take blacks back to the days of Jim Crow."
Al Sharpton 1988: Al Sharpton's career was launched by one of the most awkward cases of false accusation ever recorded. According to the Associated Press, "Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley's lawyers asserted "on 33 separate occasions" that a local prosecutor named Steven Pagones "had kidnapped, abused and raped" Brawley. There was no evidence, and Pagones was soon cleared. Sharpton then accused a local police cult with ties to the Irish Republican Army of perpetrating the alleged assault. The case fizzled when a security guard for Brawley's lawyers testified that the lawyers and Sharpton knew Brawley was lying. A grand jury investigation concluded in late 1988 that Brawley "was not the victim of forcible sexual assault" and that the whole thing was a hoax. When running for President, Sharpton was asked if the Tawana Brawley incident would hurt his campaign. Al responded, "When people around the country know that I stood up for a young lady ... I think it will help me." From Slate.Com

The NAACP Tied With Sheila Jackson Lee On the eve of the 2000 election, the NAACP ran an ad in which the daughter of James Byrd said that Bush's refusal to sign hate crime legislation while he was governor of Texas, was like watching her father die "all over again." The ad featured a horrifying image of a truck with a chain dangling behind it. The not so subtle message: Bush is indifferent to race-based crime. For obvious reasons, the ad did not mention that Byrd's attackers were found guilty and sentenced to death.
Sheila Jackson Lee October 2003: On mandating diversity in college sports (70% of athletes must be white) Insiders said Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee of the Congressional Black Caucus called it "a move back to pre-Civil War days racism. This is outrageous and reprehensible. Black athletes are much better in football and basketball, and if we give preferential treatment to whites, it will deny African-Americans their constitutional right to play those sports."Kelvin Sampson, coach of college basketball power the University of Oklahoma, with one white and 11 black players, is reported to have exclaimed, "You gotta be kidding! You mean I'd have to put, what, 70% white players out there? Guys who can't jump over a phone book, and run like they're wearing cement shoes? That's just (bleep). You put guys on the team because of ability, not to fill some bonehead quota!"

Louis Farrakhan Sept 2005: Farrakhan's suggestions that some of the death and destruction in New Orleans may have been deliberate. Farrakhan pointed out that the motive for such an explosion of the levees would be to rid New Orleans of its poor black residents.He also made predictions about the city's future."New Orleans will be a white city," he said. "It will be rebuilt to the exclusion of the poor who have been dispersed all over the country."

Barak Obama Tied With Kanye West September 2005: Obama said that "Kanye West expressed a greal of anguish and anger" that's felt in the black community. Whoever was in charge of planning, he argued, had no clue that not everyone can pack their SUV with Evian and head out to the countryside when there is a disaster. The federal government, he further argued, is "indifferent" to the plight of African Americans.
3rd Ranked Racist Race Baiter
Julian Bond June 2004:In remarks to hundreds of cheering liberal activists Wednesday, NAACP Chairman Julian Bond singled out Republicans as enemies of black Americans and compared conservatives to the terrorist Taliban who once ruled Afghanistan. "Their idea of equal rights is the American flag and the Confederate swastika flying side by side," Bond told a cheering audience. "They've written a new constitution for Iraq and ignore the Constitution here at home. They draw their most rabid supporters from the Taliban wing of American politics. Now they want to write bigotry back into the Constitution."
The harsh words have become a tradition for Bond. Since becoming Chairman of the NAACP in 1998, he has consistently used the organization's conventions to publicly proclaim his distaste for the Republicans, alternately referring to them as "neo-fascists," "the white people's party," and "a crazed swarm of right wing locusts" that have sought to "subvert, ignore, defy and destroy the laws that require an America which is bias-free." Bond opened the NAACP's 93rd annual national convention by comparing President Bush to a "snake oil" salesman.
2nd Ranked Racist Race Baiter
Charles Rangel September 2004 Mr. Rangel's metaphoric linkage of Mr. Bush to the late Theophilus "Bull" Connor - who in 1963 turned fire hoses and attack dogs on blacks, including Martin Luther King Jr., demonstrating in favor of equal rights - met with wild applause and cheering at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting, part of the organization's 35th Annual Legislative Conference...
Rangel's bad argument: "A disproportionate number of the poor and members of minority groups make up the enlisted ranks of the military." From Army Times September 23,2005: Deaths of U.S. troops in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom also have been disproportionate to ethnic makeup of the military, the report states. Based on the 1,841 deaths and 12,658 wounded service members as of May 28, when the report was being prepared, 71 percent of the dead are classified as white, 9 percent as black and 10 percent as Hispanic.
Before the war, the likes of Reps. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., and John Conyers, D-Mich., complained that a disproportionate number of non-white troops would suffer. (Thirty-two of thirty-seven members of Congressional Black Caucus voted against the use of force.) Even lily-white Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., pandering to black voters, parroted this complaint. But the facts show that these claims turned out to be false.
The Number One All Time Racist Race Baiter
Jesse Jackson September, 2005 Remarking on the only refuge in town, the New Orleans Superdome "This looks like the hold of a slave ship" -- Reverend Jesse Jackson asserted that the devastation inflicted on poor blacks by Hurricane Katrina proves America is a racist society. "We don't see this kind of destruction in white or Jewish communities," said Jackson. "Why is it always poor blacks who are hurt? It's because our racist society wants it that way." Jackson said 120,000 people in New Orleans make less than $8,000 a year. "This is less than I charge for a single speech," Jackson pointed out. Jackson also criticized the role given to former presidents George Bush senior and Bill Clinton as coordinators for a fund raising effort following the disaster.

Donna Brazille Al Gore Jr's presidential chief Donna Brazille referred to the Republicans as the "party of the white boys".
From National Review Online http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-hayward121902.asp
On Ronald Reagan's "Racism" Jack White Of New York Times Magazine in 2002 On Ronald Reagan: ". . .To liberals, however, employing the phrase "states' rights" in any context is to waive the bloody shirt of racism and segregation. Little time was wasted in accusing Reagan not simply of pandering to old-fashioned segregationist sentiment in the south, but of actively sympathizing with it. Patricia Harris, Carter's secretary of Health and Human Services, told a steelworkers' union conference in early August: "I will not attempt to explain why the KKK found the Republican candidate and the Republican platform compatible with the philosophy and guiding principles of that notorious organization." (A KKK chapter in Louisiana had scored some cheap publicity by endorsing Reagan in 1980, which endorsement Reagan immediately and forcefully rejected.) But, Harris added, when Reagan speaks before black audiences many blacks "will see the specter of a white sheet behind him." Andrew Young went even further, saying that Reagan's remarks seemed "like a code word to me that it's going to be all right to kill niggers when he's President." Coretta Scott King managed to top Young: "I am scared that if Ronald Reagan gets into office, we are going to see more of the Ku Klux Klan and a resurgence of the Nazi Party." Maryland Congressman Parren Mitchell, a leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, said that " Reagan represents a distinct danger to black Americans." Reagan, it should be noted, received the endorsement of several black leaders in 1980, including the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, Martin Luther King's successor as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Council, and the Rev. Hosea Williams, another prominent cleric from the civil rights movement.

Quotes 1-9 were aimed at Barry Goldwater, and 10-14 at Ronald Reagan. Brace yourself for more "Republicans are Nazis" articles written by our best and brightest now that Bush has won a second term. In fact, in one of the more despicable political ads of all time, the NAACP had run an ad in 2000 with the daughter of the black man (James Byrd?) who had been dragged behind a truck to his death; the women claimed that when Bush vetoed a "hate crimes" bill in Texas, it was as if her father had been brutally murdered all over again. Of course the killers are on death row, but boy would they be sorry if they were also found guilty of a hate crime to boot. Below is a key to the above quotes.
(1. Martin Luther King, 2. Roy Wilkens, 3. Senator William Fulbright, 4. Governor Pat Brown of California, 5. Jackie Robinson, 6. San Fran Mayor John Shelley, 7. Columnist Drew Pearson (no relation to the Cowboy's great receiver), 10. Columnist Richard Reeves, 11. Henry Fairlie in the Washington Post, 12. Patricia Harris, Carter's secretary of Health and Human Services, 13. Andrew Young, 14. Coretta Scott King.
Anyway, the rolledex of "Republicans are Nazis" quotes is growing in leaps and bounds, and I am not likely to capture even a fraction of such quotes. By I did come across an article on Slate.com by one Jane Smiley - here are some quotes and some comments that follow:
"I grew up in Missouri and most of my family voted for Bush, so I am going to be the one to say it: The election results reflect the decision of the right wing to cultivate and exploit ignorance in the citizenry. I suppose the good news is that 55 million Americans have evaded the ignorance-inducing machine. But 58 million have not. Well, almost 58 million of my relatives are not ignorant, they are just greedy and full of classic Republican feelings of superiority."
No doubt Ms. Smiley has watched Fahrenheit 9-11 on a continuous loop since the summer, which explains her comparative state of enlightenment versus her Missouri relatives. Must not be hard to get a seat next to her at the family reunions. Anyway, good thing that she isn't as ignorant or as greedy as her extended family - otherwise she might be led to feelings of superiority.
"Ignorance and bloodlust have a long tradition in the United States, especially in the red states. When the forces of red and blue encountered one another head-on for the first time in Kansas Territory in 1856, the red forces from Missouri, who had been coveting Indian land across the Missouri River since 1820, entered Kansas and stole the territorial election. The red news media of the day made a practice of inflammatory lying - declaring that the blue folks had shot and killed red folks whom everyone knew were walking around. The worst civilian massacre in American history took place in Lawrence, Kan., in 1862 - Quantrill's raid. The red forces, known then as the slave-power, pulled 265 unarmed men from their beds on a Sunday morning and slaughtered them in front of their wives and children. The error that progressives have consistently committed over the years is to underestimate the vitality of ignorance in America."
Umm, excuse me for one moment there, Miss Smiley, wasn't the abolitionist movement primarily one fueled by devoutly religious people? No doubt there were religious people on both sides, but why pretend they all stood on the red side? And what the hell are you talking about with red folks declaring that blue folks had shot red folks who were walking around. Did the pharmacy run out of your Prozac?
"The reason the Democrats have lost five of the last seven presidential elections is simple: A generation ago, the big capitalists, who have no morals, as we know, decided to make use of the religious right in their class war against the middle class and against the regulations that were protecting those whom they considered to be their rightful prey - workers and consumers. The architects of this strategy knew perfectly well that they were exploiting, among other unsavory qualities, a long American habit of virulent racism, but they did it anyway, and we see the outcome now - Cheney is the capitalist arm and Bush is the religious arm. They know no boundaries or rules. They are predatory and resentful, amoral, avaricious, and arrogant. "
Ahh, yes, the big capitalists have no morals - as we know! So some corporate board decided that the best way to sell their product and increase their profits was to enlist the religious right (largely middle class) in their war against the middle class. Mix in a little racism, but not enough to prevent getting 45 percent of the Hispanic vote, and the evil greedy capitalists are certain to maximize their profits. Now they can really prey upon consumers by developing life-saving drugs and the like. B*stards!
Now, you may be saying to yourself, who is Jane Smiley? The name rang a bell with me as well, and then I remembered - my wife has a paperback novel of hers. So what did I do, dear reader? I burned the book, kicked my heels up with a Wagner opera playing in the background, and read a couple chapters from Mein Kampf. As a red-stater, any other actions would only have disappointed Ms. Smiley. Of course, I am more than a little distressed that the Nazi party is now run by a bunch of neo-conservative Jews. First they took over the finances of the world, then Hollywood, now the Nazi party. No one would have guessed the third - you gotta admit those Jews are crafty!
But don't go away, Ms. Smiley - keep enlightening us with your tolerance and high-mindedness. With enemies like you on the left insulting 59 million people daily, who needs friends?

Keep That Money Makin' Racist Machine Runnin'

From The Ohio Justice Files:
Clarkence Elkins was conviceted of raping and killing his mother-in-law and raping his 6 year old niece and then put away in the slammer to rot. The prosecution evidently coached the 6 year old to identify Clarence at the scene of the crime, although he had 19 witnesses saying that he was in another city - many miles away - at the time of the crime.
Appeal after appeal was turned down.
A praying wife and other supporters (such as the stalwarts at Project Innocence in Ohiohttp://www.truthinjustice.org/ipcontacts.htm) did not give up .
New twist in 1998 killing
Convicted man says DNA implicates fellow prisoner. Other inmate says he's innocent
By Phil Trexler Beacon Journal staff writer Posted on Thu, Sep. 22, 2005
Attorneys for Clarence Elkins are demanding his release from prison, saying new DNA tests link a convicted rapist to a 1998 murder and rape.
The discovery marks the first time that science has connected someone to the crime scene.
And the lead detective may be Elkins himself, who, while imprisoned with the suspect, secretly picked up his fellow inmate's cigarette butt and mailed it to his attorney for DNA testing.
Akron attorney Jana DeLoach and Mark Godsey, a University of Cincinnati law professor and director of the Ohio Innocence Project, say the tests confirm what Elkins has said since his arrest on June 7, 1998:
He is innocent of killing his mother-in-law, Judith Johnson, and raping and beating his 6-year-old niece.
The attorneys say testing of DNA found on the victims is an exact match to Earl Gene Mann, 32, a former Barberton neighbor of Johnson who is serving a seven-year prison sentence for raping three girls.
The DNA findings are expected to be announced today at an 11 a.m. news conference organized by the Elkins family and defense team at the Akron Bar Association.
Prosecutors could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
Just two months ago, Summit County Common Pleas Judge Judy Hunter denied Elkins' bid for a new trial after DNA tests on crime scene samples excluded him. The judge's decision is being appealed. In light of the new evidence, Elkins' attorneys say they intend to ask prosecutors to bring the case back to Hunter's court for another hearing on the DNA evidence.
At the time of Hunter's ruling, the Elkins defense team had not matched the male DNA found on the victims to anyone.
DNA test results
Test results found this month by DNA experts with Orchid Cellmark, a certified lab used by prosecutors and defense attorneys, linked Mann to DNA extracted from the girl's underwear and Johnson's vagina, defense lawyers say.
No physical evidence ever linked Elkins to the crime. He was convicted primarily on the eyewitness testimony of his niece and claims by Johnson's friends that Elkins had threatened the 58-year-old woman for meddling in his marriage.
A jury convicted Elkins, 42, and a judge sentenced him to life in prison.
Since the 1999 trial, the niece has recanted her identification of Elkins as her attacker. At the same time, Elkins' wife, Melinda, has continued to lead a familywide campaign to win her husband's freedom and find out who really killed her mother and raped her niece.
Godsey said the fight for Elkins' freedom should end with the DNA test results and no more battles with prosecutors, who have been steadfast in their belief that Elkins is guilty.
``I think this means a lot to a lot of different people,'' Godsey said. ``For Melinda Elkins, the police and prosecutors put her in a position where she had her mother killed and her niece raped and she basically had to solve the crime.
``She got the right people, brought the team together and finally made it happen. I think it's time for Elkins to be released and for police to open an investigation without blinders and move forward.''
In an interview from prison this week before the DNA tests were announced, Mann denied any involvement in the murder and rape. On the day of the slaying, he said, he was living at Oriana House, a local halfway house, and returned home only briefly the morning after the murder before leaving for Coshocton.
Oriana officials, however, say Mann went AWOL from the facility on June 2, five days before the murder.
About the time of the killing, Mann lived on and off with Tonia Brasiel, the mother of his three daughters, whose house was two doors away from Johnson's home.
Elkins' niece fled to the house and spoke to Brasiel, asking for help after awakening from the bloody beating and rape and discovering her grandmother's body. Brasiel testified in Elkins' trial in 1999.
The Elkins family says Brasiel didn't immediately call police, but instead left the girl outside for several minutes before the two drove to the girl's home about one mile away.
Mann was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2002 for raping three girls, ages 8, 9 and 10, repeatedly over several years. He pleaded guilty after reaching a plea bargain with prosecutors, a move that garnered some media attention for the softness of the prison term. Mann had faced 105 years in prison if convicted at trial.
The prison term was allowed to be served with a previous conviction for assault and robbery. Mann is due to be released in April 2009 from the Toledo Correctional Institution, according to a prison representative.
Brasiel, 33, was a co-defendant in the rape case. She was convicted of child endangering for failing to protect the girls from Mann. She received probation. In 1994, she also was convicted of child endangering.
In a phone interview this week, Mann said he did not meet Elkins until this year, when the two were housed in the same cellblock at the Mansfield Correctional Institution. He said he knew Johnson and Elkins' niece only in passing and had never been inside Johnson's home.
``I never talked to (Elkins) much. We walked the track one day at rec, but that was basically the only time we talked,'' Mann said. ``He basically said the DNA wasn't his and he was getting himself a new trial.''
Melinda Elkins said Mann has been one of the leading suspects developed by the family, their attorneys and Columbus private investigator Martin Yant. She said the family is dismayed by Brasiel's behavior after the killing, especially her reluctance to immediately call police.
Mann, she said, grew as a suspect after his rape conviction.
While Elkins and Mann were in the same cellblock this year, Elkins -- knowing his defense team was collecting DNA samples of suspects -- picked up a cigarette butt discarded by Mann and mailed it to DeLoach. The sample was sent to Cellmark and an exact match was made last week, DeLoach said. The family has spent more than $20,000 on DNA testing, financed primarily from donations.
``I have mixed emotions right now,'' Melinda Elkins said. ``I'm relieved we were able to do this. I made a vow (after Hunter denied the new trial). I said if they won't find the real killer, we will. And now that we've put a face on that person, it's more devastating and more real. Now I can grieve for my mother.''
She said she hopes prosecutors will drop their fight to keep Elkins in prison.
``I hope they accept this and allow us to work together to make sure justice is served,'' she said. ``We don't have to be on opposite sides of the fence now. I hope they release Clarence as soon as possible and charge Earl Mann with this crime.''

No Prosecution for Dumb Juvenile Rapists
(Cleveland, Ohio) Apparently, rape and sexual assault by mentally retarded juveniles are not crimes.
From The Plain Dealer:
A judge threw out the cases against three 15-year-old East Tech High School students after finding the boys mentally incompetent to stand trial on charges they raped a classmate.
In April, the 17-year-old accuser told police and Cleveland schools officials that the boys - all special education students - raped and assaulted him at least three times. He said the attacks were in a second-floor bathroom, in a locker room and on the indoor track.
A school janitor said he witnessed at least part of the third incident and reported it to his boss.
Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court Judge John Gallagher did not rule on the validity of the allegations. He just summarily threw out the case because the culprits had low IQs.
The prosecutor objected to Judge Gallagher's decision and requested an independent examination of the alleged sex offenders. Gallagher told the prosecution to stuff its independent examination and refile the charges if the accused are restored to competency. The underlying, and probably erroneous, assumption is that the boys were competent at some time in the past.
In summary, either the laws of Ohio or Judge Gallagher or the combination have deemed that ultra-dumb serial gang rapists cannot be prosecuted. As such, it appears that society is powerless to stop them. Of course, I haven't been wearing my do-gooder, psycho-babble propeller beanie, so I'm just too dumb to understand. It seems to me that crimes should be prosecuted. If the accused are too dumb to assist in their defense, tough shinola. Worry about their competency after conviction.

Liberal manipulation, however, has effectively dissolved the influence and vote of the majority and has displaced Majority Rules with Minority Rules.
An overwhelming majority of Americans do no not approve of Partial Birth Abortion in which the head of a newborn babe is punctured and vacuumed - after the baby's head has been deliberately reversed in the birthing process to avoid murder charges. Only a very small minority of women libbers and their judicial cohorts like Ruth Bader Ginsburg have such inhumane, degenerate chuptza to promote this type of murder, yet it is the law and practice of the land.
A clear majority of Americans do not approve of gay marriage, and despite referendums by the electorate which enforces this attitude, minority lib courts negate the majority rule.
Here, in Akron Ohio we have an Africentric public elementary school which teaches the students how to sing African chants, wear native African clothing, and how to celebrate Kwanza. The school's academic proficiency is, however, the worse in the state. Am I a racist for not wanting to pay for this segregated Africentric schooling?
Another minority, American Educators, are actively dictating social engineering in the public schools from kindergarten through advanced degrees in college. These tax-paid government employees are forever pushing Heather Has Two Mommies and premarital sex, yet ignoring the Three R's and discipline. Because of this biased ingnorance by the lib minority ruling class in the U.S., we will soon be seeing books like "Why Can't Johnny, An MBA Graduate, Read?"
When reflecting on the incompetence of Minority Rule, one has to wonder how else could the New Orleans Mayor and Lousianna's governor have been promoted to their critical elected posts unless they were boosted by something other than their qualifications. Minorities include women (who are actually a majority although affirmative action relegates them as a minority), blacks, the disabled, the aged, Jews, Hispanics, Asian, and unofficially, homosexuals. So, the "minorities" actually comprise over seventy percent of the population - but are given special rights, promotions, and privileges for being minorities! The Constitution be damned, I guess.
I have to think that, maybe, the Constitution's "general welfare" clause in the Preamble might offer a valid excuse for offering special rights to minorities who may be less qualified to perform a government-linked job, but then reality hits and I am reminded that I, as a taxpayer, must sponsor their less than skilled performance on the (government) job. Another excuse for promoting the underqualified may be that we Americans are always in a rush, and need to slow down. What is better than an underperforming government to slow down progress and efficiency so that we all can take a national siesta? Then again, I do not want the American Military to bog down just to please the minorities. Anyone associated with the Armed Forces - and any other branch of local, county, state or federal government - will attest that social engineering, not efficiency, is the goal of Minority Rules.
Sandra Day O'Connor was recently asked what she thought was her greatest achievement. "More women in the courts." And what does that, madame, have to do with justice? Patsy Schroeder's greatest accomplishment, if asked, was getting more women into the military and closer to full combat situations. And what does that, madame, have to do with winning wars? The answer to both questions is that they could care less about anything more than promoting women, just for promotion's sake.
Is the Post Office going broke and your mail delivered late? Have you noticed that over 80% of all public school teachers are women? Social work and nursing occupations are also dominated by women and not because men refuse to be involved in such well paid professions.
In the a private sector, Hollywood has concentrated on elevating gays and other minorities to near divine status. The power of the media has overtaken the power of government - and it is very much controlled by a far left, commie wing of liberalism. Speaking of the commie wing of liberalism, the New York Times, Associated Press and most city newspapers are now infamous for their ability to hire the most incoherent publishers, editors, columnists etc. Ditto for CNN and the nearly defunct Airhead America radio syndicate.
How has Hip Hop and MTV managed to dominate juveniles? Minority Rules.
The Judiciary and Academia are obviously dominated by a very small minority of anti-traditional, dare I say godless people, who are bonded in unison against anything that resembles a patriarchal/Christian, Conservative Jewish/male/patriotic personna. Anything good that may have Biblical origination is automatically attacked by the ACLU and lib minorities. Despite the heroic motivations of Martin Luther King Jr. he in effect sold his soul to the radical, atheist left in order to gain their sponsorship. This spawned the very irreligious Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons etc.
Not to be outdone, mainline white protestant churches have also joined forces with the agnostic Politically Correct crowd.
How many times has Andrew Young called Republicans "Nazis?" How many corporations has Jesse Jackson shaken down in the name of Christ? How many expensive colleges are supporting lady's sports which cannot find participants? How many businesses are sued for not hiring enough minorities when minorities do not even apply? How many times has one atheist like Madeline O'Hare or that Newdow guy caused a minority lib judge to stop the majority's public acknowledgement of God? (Atheists only comprise, as a minority, less than 5 percent of the country). How often do courts comprised of female judges and prosecutors haul off the husband/father to jail after being charged without evidence of domestic violence? Minority Rules.
According to crime statistics, black on white crime is 16 times more likely than white on black crime. Hate Crime Laws, however, will never be enforced against blacks hating whites during a crime, as we have already seen. Women, though many times less qualified in custody cases to take care of their children, will win the favor of the court - and custody - in divorce cases. Minority Rules.
The American lib press, like Mad George Galloway, have officially endorsed Jihad as the preferred international religious movement. Islam has always started as a minority, yet historically has managed to take over entire European countries. Don't think it could happen here? Minority Rules.

An editorial disguised as a news story bashing President Bush for his supposedly belated response to the New Orleans fiasco reveals the biased venom that the AP has always had for Conservatives/Christians/Republicans/Independent Americans.
Today, on the front page above the fold, the local Akron Beacon Journal, which celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of Vietnam's Communization, printed an AP story which mercilessly bashes Bush, comparing him with the infamously goofy Baghdad Bob. Saddam's Information Minister, Baghad Bob, bragged of "slaughtering the American infidels" - even as United States forces surrounded him during the historical March To Baghdad in 2003
The Associated Press news story is peppered with the most opiniated, slanted comments I have ever seen from the syndicated news supplier. The story is headlined GOP Critics Fault Bush's Upbeat View Of Storm Aid,yet only one critic is mentioned, a Rich Galen, some unknown consultant to the GOP.
The AP story goes on with such "news" quips as:
"Add another piece of White House rhetoric that didn't match the public's view of reality:
Help is on the way, and . . . As New Orleans descended into anarchy, top Bush administration officials congratulated each other for jobs well done and spoke of water, food and troops pouring into the ravaged city. Television pictures told a different story,
and . . . What it reminded me of the other day is `Baghdad Bob' saying there are no Americans at the airport,
and . . . To some critics, President Bush seemed to deny the existence of problems with hurricane, and . . . It wasn't until Friday that he acknowledged that `the results are not acceptable,'and even then the president parsed his words,
and . . . Republicans worry that he looks out of touch defending the chaotic emergency response, and Bush got himself in trouble by trying to put the best face on a horrible situation,
and . . . The strategy is so common in Washington that operatives have a name for it -- ``spin'' -- and the Bush White House has perfected the shady art,
and . . . The AP writer, Ron Fournier, who I will never forget, blathers on and compares Fed Aid to New Orleans with our brave soldiers effort in Iraq: On Iraq alone, the rhetoric has repeatedly fallen far short of reality."
Read the rest of the news screed concocted in the Pit Of Hell in the Akron "BJ"
The Dems and their MSM must maintain a high level of racial animosity between parties because the Democratic party depends on 25% of its voting support from African Americans. That is why we have only seen the misery and finger pointing at Bush in New Orleans and not much else. That is why the MSM will not tell us of the ill preparedness of NO's Democrat mayor or Louisianna's Democrat Governor.
The MSM will also not tell you that 80% of NO fire and police have flown the coop; that over 80% of NO residents have been living on the welfare supplied by many gracious Americans since Huey Long; that the media would not inform those stranded in NO that there was transportation available north of the city; that people were being fed two meals a day in the Super Dome; that American fire fighters, police, special relief agencies, National Guard, Active military, and even FEMA have done their best to reach tens of thousands of homes (islands) surrounded by water.
If enough people stop buying, or threaten to stop buying newspapers which relay such AP sludge, the Associated Press will either exit its spin zone, or self destruct.

Jesse Jackson: Reports Of Looting And Sniper Fire "Exaggerated"
From Larry King Show Transcripts September 1, 2005 - [Transcript]
KING: Thousands. What do you make of snipers and people interfering with people transporting to Houston?
JACKSON: Well, I think that has really been exaggerated. You have the combination here of misery and panic and desperation. Some people have not eaten in five days, are without water, without food and have no form of communications.
So, there may have been some sniper fire here and there but you know we didn't let that stop us on our mission in Iraq because there is some sniper fire. We just put on flack jackets and kept on the mission.
So, for FEMA to stop evacuating people because of the fear of sniper fire was not a good thing because people are left in hospitals without electricity and people are left on top of roofs and will not have any proper foodstuffs.
The issue here is not the looters in the streets because you can't really do much looting in the streets. I've seen that same picture 20 times. The issue (INAUDIBLE) today it's $6.00 a gallon for gas in Atlanta, Georgia. Look at that part of the looting as well.
KING: Jesse will be in New Orleans all day tomorrow and give us a much more thorough report tomorrow night.
One other thing and I know you'll get a good lay of the land and we appreciate your being with us again tomorrow, do you question your faith when something like this happens?
JACKSON: Well, I do not. This is a physical disaster. What I do is I analyze more clearly are these series of storms based upon our affecting the climate with ozone layers because of carcinogens? I raise that question.
Only Jesse Jackson's unintelligible synopsis on the New Orleans disaster could add to the sorrow and misery of the devastation.
Only CNN's PC ethnic immunity could allow the unReverend Jackson's reporting as CNN's representative in the Big Easy. Talk about the sludge created by Katrina . . .
If Jesse and other African American leaders only knew how their rage filters down to the poorest of the poor, giving them license to hate the very people who want to help them - including the Army, the Police, the National Guard, etc. It has been the Jacksons and Belafontes and Andrew Youngs who have fueled the tempers of the poorest of blacks, denying them an escape from poverty in order to keep them bonded to the Democratic Party.
We are hearing every report of how New Orleans disaster relief is imperfect, but no one is looking at the scope of this Biblical Proportioned disaster where tens of thousands of people are stranded in homes surrounded by water. How many arm chair FEMA managers does it take to conclude that even if you send in an Army Division or a fleet of Navy Ships, it would not work?
New Orleans has been sinking for six thousand years due to coastal soil erosion, especially during the last not ao many years since the last time N.O. was under water, kiling many. The modern levy/river/canal system surrounding New Orleans has diverted land-building sediment away from the coastal areas, thus leaving the city most vulnerable to hurricane attacks.
Even if the levies had been rebuilt or fortified more recently, they would not have withstood the Category Five force of Katrina.
New Orleans has sunk to its bottom as has Jesse Jackson.
Praying for all those affected.
