    Tawana Brawley Finally Paying her Comeuppance 

    Tawana Brawley, the woman who falsely accused various men of holding her captive, raping her, then leaving her in a trash bag with racial slurs scrawled across her body has had her wages garnished in what is due to one of the men she accused.  Steven Pagones has been waiting years and years for the payments on the settlement he was given, more than $400,000.  You may recall this is the case that helped make Al Sharpton a household name when he came to her defense after she accused all white men of rape.

    Sharpton staged sit-ins and rallies in order to see “justice” done in this case.  Police could find no evidence to file charges, but of course that didn’t stop the race baiting Sharpton from pushing the issue.  Once it reached a grand jury they found no evidence to back up her claims.  The story goes that she stayed away from home for several days and couldn’t find a reasonable excuse that her parents would believe and came up with this story.  While it does seem to be the case that her mother’s boyfriend was a violent man who reportedly had beat her in the past, it still doesn’t justify ruining the lives of innocent men.

    Brawley showed no signs of rape or of hypothermia immediately after being found in a trash bag.  Brawley had no cuts, no abrasions, or virtually any other injuries at all.  It has even been reported that the hospital noted that her teeth had been recently brushed.  Hardly indicative of a person being held captive in the woods for days.  One neighbor says she saw Brawley crawl into the trash bag on her own accord and last but not least, all the writing found on her was written upside down.

    To tell you the truth this isn’t even good enough.  It is mind numbing to me that she was never prosecuted for bring false charges.  In my opinion every woman who brings false claims of rape should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    What Brawley allowed to happen was even bigger than the men who were falsely accused, it brought a city; and a nation for that matter, to a racial divide that was totally unnecessary as well as potentiality dangerous.

    This is the first time that Brawley has had to pay in any way for what she had done.  It is long since time that paid for her crime and her dishonesty.

      Al Sharpton should have been sued as well.
      He, like Obama, select only white-on-black crimes.
      Obama chose the Trayvon case & Professor Gates incident to convey his two worthless cents.
      Not only Obama & Sharpton but too many black leaders have helped divide this country & not unite us as we all should be.

        Sharpton was sued. He raised money to pay the damages. It was something like 200K he had to pay.

    Of Dog Whistles and Other Such Nonsense 

    I have enjoyed the spin on the left about the convention this week.  The outright falsehoods that are going on about the auto plant in Wisconsin has been quite amusing.  The video and newspaper reports that prove that the plant was indeed still making cars when President Obama took the oath of office doesn’t seem to deter them.  I guess Romney’s underwear is truly magic since the videos dated long before he choose Paul Ryan as his running mate.  

    The outright disgusting behavior that was shown towards Mia Love and Condi Rice was very sad,  but even worse, it was expected.  The cries of the female version of Uncle Tom was heard loud and clear.  We get it, you don’t like any person of color being conservative.  They are not allowed to think for themselves.  They must follow your vision, because after all, you are the party of tolerance.  

    The left got their pants all twisted by Ann Romney’s line of ‘I have a real marriage’.  She wasn’t talking about gay marriage.  She was talking about the same thing that every other married couple knows to be true, marriage is work.  The movies and the fairy tales don’t tell you that when you are growing up.  She had five children to raise with a husband who travels.  She has dealt with real tragedy in her life.  The loss of a child, numerous health problems in breast cancer and the knowledge that she will be dealing with MS for the rest of her life.  She has come out the other side of those things with her marriage in tact.  That is not an easy thing to do.  The rates of divorce in our country prove that.  

    Chris Matthews schooled me this week on the words that I am not allowed to use.  Chicago means racist.  Golf means racist.  All that secret code, oh my.  Al Sharpton has decided that the fact that Romney has a proven and clear record of putting minorities and women in positions of power and authority is a negative.  I am not even going to try and figure that out.  In his world up is down and black is white.  The only people who can legitimately put minorities is someone who shares his world view.  If not, I guess they are just pandering.  Some have gone as far to say that proves that they are racists.  Paul Ryan’s college girlfriend who happens to be black is also somehow proof that he really doesn’t like black people.  You figure it out, it just makes my head hurt.  

    But this has to be one of my favorites of the week.  

     But that line about how when America needs to accomplish something great, “you need an American”? Dog whistle to the birthers?

    Now, take a look at what he actually said:

    Tonight that American flag is still there on the moon. And I don’t doubt for a second that Neil Armstrong’s spirit is still with us: that unique blend of optimism, humility and the utter confidence that when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an American.

    She is just pulling this crap out of thin air.  He didn’t say when America needs to accomplish something, he said when the world does.  He was talking about American Exceptionalism.  Something that Maria Cordona obviously cannot even begin to understand.  The left doesn’t see America in the same vision that I and others on the right do.  They just don’t.  They don’t view our place in the world as something special.  We are just one of many to them.  We should be more like Europe to them.  Why they don’t just pick up and move to Europe is something that I don’t understand.  You like it there so much, pack your bags.  No one is stopping you.  I will help you pack.

    The Vision Statement Reads……….. 

    I was looking something up and came across this:

    Dr. King championed a movement that draws fully from the deep well of America’s potential for freedom, opportunity, and justice. His vision of America is captured in his message of hope and possibility for a future anchored in dignity, sensitivity, and mutual respect; a message that challenges each of us to recognize that America’s true strength lies in its diversity of talents. The vision of a memorial in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. is one that captures the essence of his message, a message in which he so eloquently affirms the commanding tenants of the American Dream – Freedom, Democracy and Opportunity for All; a noble quest that gained him the Nobel Peace Prize and one that continues to influence people and societies throughout the world. Upon reflection, we are reminded that Dr. King’s lifelong dedication to the idea of achieving human dignity through global relationships of well being has served to instill a broader and deeper sense of duty within each of us— a duty to be both responsible citizens and conscientious stewards of freedom and democracy

    This is the Vision Statement for the Dr. King Memorial that recently was dedicated in Washington, DC.

    You read this and then listen to the statements by “black” leaders talking about Herman Cain and you just have to shake your head.  Jesse Jackson watched Dr. King die.  Al Sharpton seems to liken himself to being the next generation that is keeping Dr. King’s legacy alive.

    What a shame that have totally missed his entire message.  They are too steeped in victimhood to see that Justice Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain achieved exactly what Dr. King wanted them to achieve.  They found dignity in their belief systems and have the courage to stand by them, even when the race baitors of the world try to tear them down.

      Even in the mid-`60s when Dr. King made this “Vision Statement”, some blacks misunderstood or mistranslated it to mean more of an empowerment thing, an opportunity to revolt. It was scary then, and has only gotten worse. Some of his own people didn`t hear what he really said ! The message was hijacked almost immediately !

    Quote of the Day – Al Sharpton Edition Part 2 

    “What [Cain] does not have the right is to rewrite history by saying that blacks were brainwashed by becoming Democrats, We went with a Party that stood up for the Civil Rights Act of ’64 and Voting Rights Act of ’65.”

    Al Sharpton’s response to Herman Cain saying many blacks have been brainwashed into voting for democrats. 

    Al needs a history book (although it probably doesn’t mention this), more republicans then democrats voted for both of these acts.  Would seem that Herman Cain may be onto something.

      Jacg, you and Cain are correct and I might add, it`s the libs who have and are continuing at every opportunity to rewrite history. Rs, conservatives want to stop it and write it the way it really was, including events that libs have in fact removed from history texts !

        The slavery issue is one that blacks have grabbed for their victimhood meme, but in fact, there were 10s of thousands or even 100s of thousands of white slaves in America in the 1600s and perhaps later; Irish and Scots in particular. Just learned of this myself recently and plan to explore it; my ancestors were here then and earlier ! Some may have been sent over from England as slaves !

    Quote of the Day – Al Sharpton Edition 

    When the last Democrat was in the White House, Bill Clinton, there was a lot that I disagreed with.  He brought the crime bill, that brought back the death penalty in the federal government. He brought the welfare reform bill, which hurt, in my opinion, a lot of our communities. He did things that I felt was detrimental to our community. Even had an arch-conservative, Dick Morris, run his re-election.  You said nothing! You didn’t have any kind of loud voice.  Now, you go from who some of you call a black president to a real black president, and you talk about “unleash us” and let me at ‘em and all of that. And then when he responds you act like he hurt your feelings or he doesn’t know who he’s talking to. Let’s be fair: if you gave a pass in the past, why are you so vociferous now? I’m not telling you to shut up.  I’m telling you don’t make some of us have to speak up!

    Al Sharpton’s response to the criticism coming from the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Hmm, when exactly did Obama become the “real” black president?  Because it wasn’t all that long ago that Sharpton said this:

    “just because you’re our color doesn’t make you our kind.”

    Or maybe I am mistaken that he saying that Obama was not “black” enough. 

    “what’s his embrace of our agenda?”

    Or maybe not.

    Also – Dick Morris is an Arch conservative?  Who knew?
