Some facts are more equal, and convenient than others

Stacy McCain has a heck of a good piece up at American Spectator. One that was read by Rush. Go check it out, and maybe send it to MSNBS or CNN, Lord knows they might need to see what a journalist does

So, I recognized it as legitimate news, and decided to write it where it would have the best chance of attracting high-profile attention, and then I wrote it as clearly as I could: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

Part of the reason it was difficult to get that story across was that it wasn’t easy to explain. It’s a complex story and boiling it down to less than 700 words took me several hours, because I had to sort through a lot of stuff and double-check basic background facts. And here is the most important fact of the whole story:

TRAYVON MARTIN WAS NOT FROM SANFORD

The liberal media keep leaving that out, don’t they? And why do you think that is? Because if they told you he was from Miami Gardens, more than 240 miles from Sanford, then the media would have to explain why Trayvon was in Sanford the night of Feb. 26, 2012.

Sometimes, if you pull one thread of a story, the whole narrative unravels and this question — “Why was Trayvon in Sanford?” — is one that the liberal media don’t want to talk about.

This is how you know it’s probably the most important question of all.

Strange as it may seem (or not), the liberal media broke this story before George Zimmerman was ever arrested but never followed up. Frances Robles of the Miami Herald reported it on March 26, 2012: “Multiple suspensions paint complicated portrait of Trayvon Martin.”

And then . . . nothing. Even while Robles’ story triggered an internal investigation within the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department (MDSPD) that helped eventually to bring about the resignation of MDSPD Chief Charles Hurley, nobody else in the mainstream media thought Trayvon Martin’s school record relevant to the story.

Because they are a disgusting pack of cowardly liars, that’s why. Some of them were down for the left-wing agenda, and some just let themselves be mau-maued by the thug mob that was demanding George Zimmerman’s prosecution. In fact, the Miami Herald actually quoted leaders of the thug mob in its March 26, 2012, article:

“It’s completely irrelevant to what happened Feb. 26,” said attorney Benjamin Crump. “They never heard this, and don’t believe it’s true. If it were true, why wouldn’t they call the parents? Why wasn’t he arrested?”
Trayvon, who was a junior at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, had never been arrested, police and the family have said.
“We think everybody is trying to demonize him,” Crump said. . . .
Trayvon’s parents viewed the new reports as an orchestrated campaign to demonize their son as a “junkie and thief,” a routine occurrence in such cases, the Rev. Al Sharpton said at an afternoon press conference. Zimmerman, Sharpton said, had no way of knowing about Trayvon’s school record — “because he didn’t interview him before he shot him.”
“The only thing that’s relevant is what Zimmerman knew,” Sharpton said. “Let’s not play this double standard of trying to damage who is dead and sanitize who is the cause of the death.”
Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, said her son never had any problems with gangs or the police. In fact, she said, when she transferred him out of Carol City High School to be closer to home, the school wanted him to stay at Carol City because they liked him and he was a good student.
“They killed my son, and now they are trying to kill his reputation,” Fulton said.

Let’s leave aside for now this accusation that the only reason anyone would care about Trayvon Martin’s school disciplinary records was because they wanted to “demonize” the dead teenager and “kill his reputation.” Instead, let me call your attention to this: Sybrina Fulton says “she transferred him out of Carol City High School to be closer to home,” but Sybrina Fulton lived near Ben Franklin Park, and it doesn’t take a genius to check Google Maps: Carol City High School is at 3301 Miami Gardens Dr, Miami Gardens, FL — 7.4 miles from Ben Franklin Park — while Krop High School  is at 1410 County Line Rd, Ives Estates, FL, 8.1 miles from Ben Franklin Park.

Whatever reason Trayvon transferred from Carol City High to Krop High, being “closer to home” doesn’t really seem to explain it. Maybe there’s some other explanation that I don’t understand, but we know that Trayvon was suspended three times from Krop High. It might be interesting to know more about Trayvon’s years at Carol City High, besides his mother’s claim that “the school wanted him to stay at Carol City because they liked him and he was a good student.”

I’m just sayin’ . . .

Is Salon the STD of the Internet?

It might seem a bit harsh to judge Salon so harshly, but, as Stacy McCain points out, Salon is the  Most Worthless Internet Site, Period. He should know, he reads it so we do not have to. I have read Salon’s stuff, it is like watching MSNBS. Sure it is a Tree of Low-Hanging Blogging Fruit, but the mind numbingly bad writing at Salon can cause severe brain irritation, and, if given a choice between reading salon, and watching MSNBS, well I think Stacy McCain sums up my feelings

Which is worse, herpes or syphilis? Herpes is incurable, but the ravages of syphilis can be deadly. This is a story about the liberal media, however, not sexually transmitted diseases . . .

Of course watching MSNBS, or reading Salon can prove as harmful to your love life as an STD. If you think having to explain that “prescription strength cream” your significant other found in your medicine cabinet is bad, try explaining why you read Salon, or watch MSNBS. Talk about a relationship killer! McCain goes on about the utter failure that Salon, and all “progressive media” is

You know how, since Day One of the IRS scandal, every liberal on the planet has been saying it’s not really a scandal? So the umpteenth reiteration of the IRS Scandal (NOT) meme was published Monday by a writer for Salon, the Most Worthless Internet Site, Period.

While AOL paid gazillions for HuffPo, and BuzzFeed is now estimated to be worth gazillion-times-infinity, nobody has ever hazarded a guess of the value of Salon.com, a site that has been losing massive sums of money constantly since the days of dial-up modems.

Because there are no other “progressive” sites on the Internet, you see, and if these investors didn’t keep pouring money into that courageousSalon.com, then Newt Gingrich would take over America and suddenly TV would be in black-and-white again, or something.

Nobody ever pays attention to Salon except in the sense of, “Did you see that stupid/gross/utterly wrong thing they published at Salon?”

But why bring up Tracy Clark-Flory at a time like this?

My point is that nobody really pays attention to Salon except gigantic inflatable dildos like Lawrence O’Donnell, who evidently had anapoplectic fit because this IRS Scandal (NOT) story failed to mention that Lawrence O’Donnell invented IRS Scandal (NOT) stories.

Of course, O’Donnell has a fit every time the wind blows, that is what he does, he works for MSNBS, where being a gigantic inflatable dildo is a prerequisite for a gig on one of their shows, how else do you explain Martin Bashir getting his own show?  But, the larger point is that America, as a nation, does not embrace Progressive causes. Air America failed, talk radio is dominated by Conservative hosts, not crackpot Progressive’s. Salon, FAIL! MSNBS FAIL! Their are only two reasons anyone follows “progressive media”. For laughs and easy blogging material, or because you are a Progressive crackpot who actually buys the tons on  BS spewed by Progressives. And the fact is there are just not enough crackpots that WANT to read Salon, watch MSNBS, or listen to Thom Hartman for anyone to take them seriously. Yet, investors keep shoveling money into those pits of Progressive failure.

McCain, who hates O’Donnell as much as I do, closes his post with this Tweet asking the age old question which is worse a pack of rabid jackals or a Gigantic Inflatable Dildo named Lawrence?

.@pareene is evil, but so are rabid jackals, and if rabid jackals attacked @Lawrencehttp://www.salon.com/2013/07/09/lawrence_odonnell_outraged_to_read_story_that_isnt_about_him/ … GO, RABID JACKALS, GO!

Man TOUGH CALL, but GO JACKALS!

 

Stacy McCain: If only I were a Texan

Stacy McCain has a post up about  his mis-guided, by his guidance counselor, youth, and a lawsuit over body cavity searches of women wearing bikinis. You really should read it, here is a teaser

Robert Stacy McCain @rsmccain

I would offer an apology to any and all Feminsts who contracted Offendeditis from reading this except that one of the reasons for this blog’s very existence is to deeply aggrieve, upset, piss off, anger and offend Feminists. So believe me any offense caused by this post to womyn is strictly intentional. And, frankly, you Feminuts ought to thank me, because if you were honest, for once in your embittered lives, you would admit that you are happy when you are aggrieved, upset, pissed off, and yes, as angry as a badger with a toothache.
You really should read the entire post Stacy has on this though. He really shows what a selfless bastard he really is, and at the same time, shows his disapproval for the over the top, Statist tactics of the law enforcement officers involved in Bikini Gate! Do not mistake his twisted sense of humor, and I am an authority on twisted senses of humor, trust me mine is pretty dammed twisted, with his lust for SERIOUS journalism. Here is another snippet from Fingers McCain!
Who was ever more qualified for this job than me? If I had only known there was a need for courageous public servants to perform body-cavity searches on bikini-clad women, certainly I would have been willing to serve — courageously, I might add — performing this duty to protect my fellow citizens from the menace of unlicensed vaginas.
In all seriousness, this type of police behavior ought not ever go unpunished, NO excuse for such abuse happening.

 

So THAT is why they call it Wacky Weed!

Stacy McCain offers up an answer to the long puzzling question what is up with Gary Busey?

 

Dr. Samuel T. Wilkinson, a physician in residence at the Yale University department of Psychiatry, writes in the Wall Street Journal: “There is a significant and consistent relationship between marijuana use and the development of schizophrenia and related disorders.”

You can read the whole thing — that is, you could read the whole thing, if you weren’t a raving psycho who’s smoked enough weed to fry your brain. Of course, correlation is not causation, and there is the chicken-and-egg problem: Which came first, the crazy or the weed?

We could hypothesize that mentally unstable people are more likely to do a lot of potentially dangerous things — smoke marijuana, vote Democrat, date tattooed women — without any one of these factors being the causeof their insanity. Advocates of the legalization of marijuana could therefore say, “Yeah, crazy people smoke a lot of weed, but . . . Hey, man, stop being such a buzzkill, OK?”

Now you might be wondering what any of this has to do with Gary Busey. If you are, then you might need to step away from the  bong, as Stacy explains

Did someone call for a doctor?

Stacy McCain is looking at an ugly thing, a thing he calls A Psychosis Called ‘Equality’” A psychosis the manifests itself in deplorable outbursts of uncontrollable rage, and intolerance towards anyone that dares hold a differing view. Stacey has some of the Tweets from someone just like that

The fanatical conceptions of ideologues inspire madness. Last night, a certain devotee of the “Free Kate” crusade went on a Twitter spree, a few samples of which I share for your amusement:

Oh, look: An advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346498179887403008 … hurling a familiar epithet at @michellemalkin — you stay classy, progressives!

Oh, look: The advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346469548117086208 … says she’s being spammed by “ChristoFascists”!

Oh, look: The advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346445946105765889 … says she’s a victim of “heterosupremacist tyrannical theocrats”!

Tolerance: A Progressive Value: https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346498050535075840 … Take that, you heterosupremacist gay basher Jesus freaks!

According to , if you’re against toilet-stall sex with 14-year-olds https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346470550417317890 … you’re a hater!

Of course, this @Jessica Equality  Naomi nut is not who they claim to be, as Stacy notes
And imagine the chagrin of “Jessica Naomi’s” LGBT friends when they discover that, in fact, “Jessica Naomi” is a 48-year-old straight guy who’s just really into watching teenage lesbians on video.
Stacy has more on the enraged Tweets of Jessica the 48-year-old Lesbian film critic, and the hatred comes through for all to see. Now, you might be asking yourself what is wrong with this individual. Maybe they had a bad childhood, or maybe they fell out of the Tree of Eternal Bitterness hitting every branch on the way down. But I have a different answer. For years I have been diagnosing Liberal Maladies, and I often use them here on this blog. Offendeditis (a desperate yearning to be constantly offended), GODitis (a severe allergic reaction to any mention of God, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Bible, Jesus, Christmas Trees, or anything else that might have anything to do with Christianity), and Eternal Bitterness Syndrome (A pervasive state of bitterness, and anger, see Janeane Garafalo for a classic case study in EBS). There are many more, and in studying Jessica Whats His Face’s Tweets, I think I have discovered yet another Liberal Malady. Equality Obsession Syndrome. This one causes the sufferer to agonize over the lack of “equality” in the world, and to twist themselves into knots because they feel, perpetually it would seem, that they, and everyone like them, have been ruthlessly targeted for persecution and discrimination.
It also seems this condition causes its victim to have a perverse desire to excuse the actions of everyone who is “like them”. In this case an 18-year-old girl who had sex with a 14 year-old-girl is not a criminal who broke laws. Instead she is a victim of inequality simply because she is “like” Jessica Loves Lesbo Films. Reality would dictate that this 18-year-old girl is simply facing the same consequences that many 18-year-old boys have faced, in other words she is being treated EQUALLY, but EOS causes reality to fade away I guess. In the end those afflicted with EOS do not really want equality at all. They want a Get Out of Jail Free Card no matter what they do. In other words what they seek is INEQUALITY, as long as they, and those like them benefit.

 

Liberals never learn, example #488

It seems that every year, a group of Liberals try to get sponsors of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show to bail on him, thus shutting rush up. The Left engages in such tactics  because they are tolerant, open-minded folks who love freedom of speech, except when they disagree with the speech. Call it the Hush Rush Campaign. This campaign seems to never end, and it seems to fall flat on its face each time. This annual failure must peeve the Left pretty badly. If for no other reason than they are often successful in such tactics. Ah, but, as Stacy McCain notes, Rush is different. He is so popular that his advertisers know they will lose more costumers by leaving Rush’s show, than by staying with him. And that has to hit the Left hard, really hard. Just ask Matt Edelstein

On Thursday, Professor William Jacobson called attention to evidence that the “Stop Rush” boycott campaign has failed. Meanwhile, one of the leaders of the “Stop Rush” campaign, Matt “Shoq” Edelstein, had his lawyer send a cease-and-desist letter to his ex-girlfriend, who had been saying some unflattering things about Shoq.

Why is Rush so popular? Because he says it like it is

 

 

The sad truth about the Equality Pimps. They do not want equality, they want special considerations

Equality is such an easy ideal to embrace, it really is. I am fine with Gay marriage for instance, personally, I think it ought to be a state by state issue, with the people of the states making that decision. But, Gay marriage, like “equality” is not the issue with Gay activists. Gay activists, like all activists are people who have become obsessed with making everyone else live as the activist sees fit. It is not good enough for a Gay activist to allow different states to have different laws. NO, the activist must have all the states bend to their desires or else. If you are wondering, I have a natural distrust of anyone who calls themselves an activist. They set my BS meter off frankly. 

All of that brings me back to the Equality Pimps. Take what Stacy McCain has been blogging about lately for example. An 18-year -old girl, had sexual encounters with another girl, age 14. 14 is below the age of consent, so this 18-year-old Lesbian is finding out, as many boys over the age of 18 have found out, that actions, if they are sexual in nature with minors, have consequences. Sounds fair right? Sounds like equality to me. But, nit to the Gay activist types, who are trying to recreate the civil rights movement. I will let Stacy pick it up here

 

You know how the “Free Kate” crowd say they have no agenda beyond “fairness” and “equality”? There is reason to doubt:

If you get caught banging a 14-year-old, @MonWithMac has lots of tearful sympathy pic.twitter.com/mFi8mosm39 Only if you’re lesbian, though.

BL2Mj_PCcAEsWm9
Again, this is being spun as a case of, wait for it, discrimination. But, if these girls were boys, they would still be in trouble. This is how EQUALITY works. You get treated equally, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.
But it is not really equality that is the end game here is it?

It’s difficult to describe my reaction to Kristin Ireland’s tearful “Lifetime movie” sympathy for Paige in Pennsylvania, jailed for being an 18-year-old having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

According to Ireland, this is a story about “railroading and “discrimination,” as if 18-year-old guys in Pennsylvania were routinely banging 14-year-olds without any fear of prosecution.

I think not, ma’am.

And I think Kristin Ireland wouldn’t be boo-hooing if this was a teenage boy doing time for statutory rape. No, her sympathy is reserved entirely for her fellow lesbians, and so therefore either:

  1. We must create a special Gay Jailbait Loophole to prevent the prosecution of “consensual” gay sex with 14-year-olds;
    or
  2. We must effectively end all prosecution for such crimes, hetero or homo, because equal application of the law would occasionally result in some 18-year-old lesbians going to jail for dating ninth-graders, and this would make Kristin Ireland cry.

As I said, I am all for equality, but the activists here? They are about themselves.
