    Quote of the Day – Martin Bashir Edition 

    “After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of msnbc, I have tendered my resignation.  It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.

    “I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences.  I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”

    I don’t believe for an instance he regrets what he said.  He regrets it cost him his job.

      He is only the scapegoat.

      There are more heads that need to roll from the top at MSNBC.

      Somebody gave the APPROVAL for him to read what he said.

      If truth be known … Bashir Martin most likely doesn’t believe what he read.

      But like a good storyteller … he read it. He did his job. He was sacrificed.

      Sacrificed for whom(?) … I wonder?

    “Black English” and Low Expectations 

    “It’s been a little scary. Sometimes it’s like she’s speaking Hungarian, and he’s speaking Cantonese. She’s been articulate, just in a different kind of English than mainstream English, she’s speaking Black English. Everything she says, where you can see the Twittersphere, or people I know thinking she’s making a grammatical mistake. If a Martian came down and the Martian happened to be in South-Central rather than in Grand Rapids, the Martian would have as hard a time figuring out how this dialect worked as any other. She said in the clip that ‘I had told you.’ Many people are thinking, ‘why is she using that?’ That’s Black English.”

    So says a talking head on MSNBC when discussing the testimony of Rachel Jeantel.  A network that prides itself on being for the “little guy” and champion for minorities.  Really?  This is sticking up for minorities?  This is championing the cause of the inner city blacks?  I think not.  This is nothing but a huge insult as well-being more proof that the liberal mindset that they need special dispensation because obviously they are not able to do better.  Another words, they are too stupid.

    I have heard many making fun of her and I am certainly not going to do that.  I personally find the entire episode sad and symptomatic of what is wrong with our education system and our society that we are willing to accept this.  I don’t buy the argument that English is not her first language, she was born here.  I grew up with parents who didn’t speak English as their first language either.  But I certainly learned it and so did all the children of my parents immigrant friends.  Kids especially will pick up languages quite quickly.  Outside of that even this talking head isn’t using that as a reason.  This man is saying she is just an average black kid, talking like black kids do.  Why is this acceptable?

    This young woman will have a difficult time finding a good job.  She will likely stay in the confines of the inner cities.  But what really gets me about this is why does the black community accept this meme?  Why aren’t they up in arms over these comments?  This is saying this is about what we can expect of the black community and we just shrug and say, hey this is the culture.  Why aren’t we trying to change this culture?  Why aren’t we saying there are obvious problems and these problems need to be addressed and addressed now?

    Don’t they understand that they have been called too stupid to speak proper English?  That by accepting this, in reality they are accepting the low expectations that have cursed that community?  Lets face facts here, the black population is only around 12% of our population.  Yet somewhere around 27% of the welfare given out goes to that community.  They are living in poverty in higher numbers than others.  Isn’t this part of the reason for that?  We have accepted that they have a “culture” that allows them to speak almost incoherently in a setting such as a courtroom.  She came across as ignorant as well as outright belligerent.

    I would have felt so much better if MSNBC was screaming about how poor of an education this young woman received.  Now she is far from the only person who can’t read cursive, I asked a 16-year-old suburban white girl yesterday, and she says that she has a hard time reading it as well.  She doesn’t write that way, and her public school has done little to nothing to educate her on that type of writing.  Cursive is being taken out of public and private schools at an alarming rate, and I say it is to the detriment of our society.  It is a skill that shouldn’t be tossed aside simply because we are more of a technological society, learning how to write properly will also help with other skills such as reading and comprehending what you are reading.

    We can’t keep saying well that is just culture when it comes to these types of things.  We need to start asking why is this considered acceptable?  Why is this “just culture”?  What does this say about our culture?

    I want to make it perfectly clear, that I am not making fun of this young woman.  Exactly the opposite.  I think we need to do something that stops promoting this meme and stop coming out with comments like this is “Black English”.  We shouldn’t be accepting that the simple act of speaking is done along racial lines in this country.  We should have but one “English” in this country.

    My advice to Ms. Jeantel is to go to your local public library, they normally have some sort of class that can be taken at no charge to address your language deficiencies.  Then you won’t have to accept whatever job you can find and just get by.  Sadly, the talking heads at MSNBC seem to think that is all you are qualified for.  With a little help and motivation on your part, I think you can prove them wrong.

      Your advice is wasted on this young woman and the hundreds of thousands of young men and women in America who are like her. She cannot read well enough to benefit from any program that requires reading with understanding – what is reading without understanding?? – at the age of 19 she and those in her situation are locked into a trained inability to learn, an unwillingness to change and a blindness to the reality of life outside of her neighborhood. Indeed, she has no interest in any other life, has only contempt for the taxpayers – black and white – who pay for her expenses … in short, she is willfully ignorant, stubbornly sullen and sees no reason to change her ways. Just as the Black Congresswomen – sorry, forgot her name – who was criticizing the GOP because they “…want blacks to get a job to pay for their babies food.” They live in a different world from the real one and there is no reaching them. A full generation – 30 years – of public education re-structured into indoctrination has produced these folks and I see no way to even begin to integrate them into American society, let alone give them the tools to use to help themselves. In case you missed it, they don’t want to help themselves and don’t want help; only welfare. “Oh, brave new world, that has such people in it.”

    MSNBC’s New Poll – Is it OK to Kill Americans? 78% Say Yes 

    Somehow I don’t think they would be asking this question if a Republican were in office.  The other question one must ask is which Americans do the 78% think it is OK to kill?

    SMDH

    want to kill americans

    Quote of the Day – Karen Finney Edition 

    “I think Herman is giving that base a free pass and I think they like him because they think he is a black man that knows his place.”

    Karen Finney, MSNBC Contributor.

    Many in the Tea Party thinks his place is in the White House.

      Every word they say about Herman Cain reinforces my opinion that they accuse us of racism because they are the true racists. Who would think something like this, much less say it?

      • just a conservative girl 9:06 PM on 10/28/2011 Permalink | Reply

        Well what is really irritating is the fact that no matter we are still racists. If we didn’t like him it was because he is black. If we do like him it is because he a black man who we don’t consider a threat. It gives them an out because there is no way to win with them. We are racists no matter what, so they don’t have to ever move beyond it.

          That’s standard leftist crap (think about the global warming hoax: if it’s hot, it’s global warming; if it’s cold, it’s global warming–typical illogic of unreasonable, ideologues who have no principles, no brains, and no honor).

      • Robert Curtis 8:41 PM on 10/29/2011 Permalink | Reply

        Herman Cain is dead beat whose candidacy is driven by the bankrupt conservative field who is also a paid lobbyist for the Koch brothers and isn’t really concerned about anything but selling as many books and he can get and generating speaking fees too. You need to read about the Enron scam one of his companies tried to run too.

      In their minds EVERYONE thinks and does as they do. It`s just classic projection and Alinsky tactics: falsely accuse us of believing / doing precisely what they actually believe and do !

      Ridicule is our best defense, along with the truth !

    • Deeka 9:08 AM on 10/29/2011 Permalink | Reply

      Remember that to the Left, Herman Cain is not an “authentic” Black man. You know…unemployed, five kids with five women, gang member, welfare recipient, reliable Democrat voter and completely uninformed. That is the Leftist view of Blacks. And let’s add to this that the Left always wants to eliminate “undesirables” and that definition ALWAYS includes “people of color”.

      They fail to realize that we love Herman not because of any hue to his his skin, but because he is effing awesome and has that indefatigable optimism that Reagan had and nobody in politics has shown since! BTW he did an interview with an Israeli magazine that alleviates the reservations I’d had about him on the only issue that matters to me more than any other, so I am happily on the Cain Train. Rick Santorum turned me off with his snide remarks to and about Herman Cain, it made him look petty & mean and we already have THAT in the White House!

      Herman is a smart man who learns quickly; he will do fine in office, as he is already educating himself and getting up to speed in any areas where he’d previously been not quite up to par.

        Herman Cain was one of the very, VERY few politicians (he`s running for pres. so he`s a pol. now) who said they were going to Israel with Glenn Beck who actually DID go ! Good for him for his support of Israel and for keeping his word !

    Rachel Maddow And The Continuing Saga Of The Polished Truth 

    MSNBC’s boyish news reader with the bowl haircut, Rachel Maddow, made no effort to hide her pomposity when she said this on her show on February 17, 2011:  “’I’m here to report that there is nothing wrong in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin is fine. Wisconsin is great, actually. Despite what you may have heard about Wisconsin’s finances, Wisconsin is on track to have a budget surplus this year.”

    “I am not kidding. I’m quoting their own version of the Congressional Budget Office, the state’s own nonpartisan ‘assess the state’s finances’ agency. That agency said the month that the new Republican governor of Wisconsin was sworn in, last month, that the state was on track to have a $120 million budget surplus this year. So, then why exactly does Wisconsin look like this right now?”

    Poor misinformed teleprompter reader.  Little boy trapped in a woman’s body. 

    Rachel Maddow has done it again.  Remember when she fell hook-line-and-sinker for the fake news story that Sarah Palin was calling for an “American-led invasion of Egypt to protect North America?”  Maddow said, “This is not Sarah Palin’s idea.  This is what someone is suggesting for Sarah Palin.”

    She cited a memorandum prepared by Robert Lang, director of the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau but failed to note that it outlines $258 million in unpaid bills or expected shortfalls in programs such as Medicaid services for the needy—$174 million alone—and the state owes Minnesota $58.7 million under a discontinued tax reciprocity deal.

    Politifact.com became curious about the claims by Maddow and madman Ed Schultz and did some digging.  You can read their findings here.  They call her claims false. I say she’s lying.  A bogus fairytale designed to gin up the union goons.  Too harsh?  Meh.

    Hey Comcast execs, what do you think about your clueless primetime crew?

    Harry Reid: Lend Me Your Balls Ed 

    A “big thanks” goes to Brian Maloney of Radio Equalizer for providing both the audio and a transcript of Ed Schultz’s on-air moment of wretched lunacy.  

    ED SCHULTZ (10:46): Do you think here in late July of 2010, after the 2008 election, almost two years, do you think the Democrats can finally get their freaking heads screwed on right and realize that the lefties put you in office TO DO SOMETHING! TO HELL WITH THE REPUBLICANS! THEY’RE ANTI-AMERICAN! THEY’RE PSYCHO TALKERS!  THEY DON’T CARE!

    SCHULTZ (11:25): How much focus has there been in the mainstream media about jobs being shipped overseas? Well, it’s happening on The Ed Show. I don’t know about anybody else’s on any other network or anywhere else. THAT’S THE STORY! THAT’S WHERE AMERICANS ARE RIGHT NOW!

    SCHULTZ (11:51): Look, Democrats, I’m your best friend. I’ve been across the country. I take thousands of emails. Our team works 16 hours a day. We do a TV and we do a radio show. I’M TRYING TO TELL YOU WHAT THE HELL’S GOING ON! But you sit back, and Harry, you are ball-less! You won’t do the nuke option for the American people and shove the Republicans into the ditch! SHOVE THOSE BASTARDS RIGHT INTO THE DIRTHOLE! This is about power! It’s about winning! It’s about saving American lives! *That’s* what this is about! And if I’m too excited or too passionate for you, I’m giving you the finger right now! Because I don’t give a damn!  [Emphasis mine.]

    Moonbattery’s Gregory of Yardale suggests that The Left is “Chernobyl-ling”—a meltdown of epic proportions.  November will be a long day’s journey into night.
