Columnist Who Inspired Bob
Costas Drops New Bomb:
´The NRA Is the New KKK´

NewsBusters, by Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 2:30:52 PM

Kansas City sportswriter Jason Whitlock loves to stoke controversy. So after he blamed Jovan Belcher´s murder-suicide on the "gun culture" -- inspiring NBC Sports lecturer Bob Costas -- in an interview with Roland Martin, he added fuel to the fire by claiming "the NRA is the new KKK." Apparently, black youths are "armed" by the NRA, and they´re also responsible for loading up black neighborhoods with drugs: WHITLOCK: Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity

Comments:
Un.be.lievable! There is just no reason anymore in the media. It is just stunning to behold. I have to say the comments from Whitlock are shocking because he has been rather reasonable in the past.

This is just the start. Belcher didn´t murder his girlfriend and kill himself, whitey did it. White gun makers are flooding the inner cities with handguns to induce innocent youths to kill each other. It´s all racist! The usual suspects will soon be out in force, Reverend Al, Maxine the Mouth, Jesse Jackson, Oprah, et al.

The personal opinion of a sportswriter about complex or important issues is best ignored. I am not sure why these remarks are dignified by reporting them. Responding to them is a waste of time.

Uh, remember how all of us used to be the good guys? How we all lived by the teachings of God and the laws of our nation, at every level?

Yeah, we´ll all be in jail soon, for something. Doesn´t matter what..... could be for typing messages like this. Could be due to emails we send our, or our FB pages. Could be because somebody somewhere reported to the authorities that we did, or said, something they were offended by. Could even be because of our voter registrations.... they´ll be watching for us, and only us, to commit some new crime they just thought of.

Remember DHS missive concerning ´´domestic terrorists´´ as, basically, US? Did you know it had been updated?

Many years ago, this idiot was a sportscaster here in St Louis and didn´t know s*ht from shinola then either. I have no idea how he got picked up by the networks way back then. Plain and simple, he´s an idiot - - always was, always will be. Another lib who achieved well beyond his level of incompetence, and therefore thinks he is smart and has something of value to say.

I assume now that the MSM has come out and shown its true colors, I offer my opinion that ABCCBSNBC is the Pravda of the new USSA.

Actually, after being defeated in the Civil War, southern Democrats stripped newly-freed blacks of their Second Amendment rights, right around the time that Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan and began using it as their party´s domestic terrorism wing.

Jason Whitlock and Bob Costas are just about the most ignorant, arrogant, witless pieces of excrement you could ever run across.

The NRA doesn´t promote gun violence, drug use or gang membership. Those cultural poisons are peddled largely by black popular culture.

#3: Sadly, probably so. Ride this horse ´til it drops or a better one comes along.

#9: "Pretty and young-looking" always trumps competence and intelligence in the media world. Some network-type thought that applied to Costas back when.

#10: Costas is getting far more attention today than usual. He´s probably very happy.

And why don´t you run with that thought next Sunday night, Boob Costas!

Seriously, I like the NFL, but in the wake of these dramatic and shocking deaths, I think little Bob Costas in his own clever way was trying to deflect the immediate spotlight away from serious NFL problems, like the prevalence drugs and violence.

Well played #21. Indeed the gun control movement in this nation shares the same roots at the KKK, limiting the power and freedom of the freed former slaves.

What freightens me is how the big lies have been repeated enough to prove the "big lie" theory. We have droves of brainwashed masses that accept this drivel.

"There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”—Booker T.

I was wondering how long it would be after the so-called election for the left to come out swinging against the 2nd amendment.

I was actually surprised it took them this long. The NFL shooting was an instant trigger for them. So far, not one single word about the "Roid Rage" effect of all the gallons of steroids these super athlete millionaires inject. Well, I am seeing lines drawn in the sand now. Take away guns from law abiding whities and leave the "Hood" thugs well armed- they the tough ones, best be leavin´ dem folks alone! White boys are easy.

A lot of words about guns hereabouts; all for naught because amoral people will kill with whatever they can lay their hands on.
Think about the few words spoken by God to the amoral couple of this Gun Article when they faced His judgment to get out of His face, the ultimate DIS.

A 20-something African American youth that never knew his father. His mother is working a minimum wage job at best, a crack addict at worst. He probably lives with his grandma or aunt as the State has taken custody away from his biological mother. He watches the glorification of violence, the drug culture, subjugation of women, theft and the squandering of money and his freedom from hip hop videos, Hollywood movies and the NBA. In other words today´s pop culture. He has multiple tattoos paying tribute to his multiple children with multiple mothers. He is a low level drug dealer selling $20 bags of crack and marijuana. In a deal gone bad in the abandoned house he is squatting, he shoots another 20 something with a similar background.

It is the 2nd Amendment and the NRA´s fault.

Right.

He was quite adept at being a punk pos. Of course, it´s much harder beating yourself to death, but all Belcher had to do was to walk in the wrong areas of KC and flash a wad of cash and some jewelry around and his bro´s woulda taken care of beating him to death.

This is easy Jason. I could say YOU are a racist using your position in the media to encourage laws that will result in more rapes, robberies and murders of innocent Americans. You don´t protect innocent Americans by disarming them. You only make the streets safer for criminals. Why do you hate innocent Americans Jason? If you are really concerned about inner city gun crime YOU ought to join the NRA and help them pressure Democrat mayors to use Project Exile which requires a minimum 5 year sentence in a federal prison out of the area for a gun crime. YOUR Democrat mayors resist this plan and instead dismiss or plea bargain away gun crimes. That fact is easily verified. So, shut your ignorant mouth and do something to help stop gun violence instead of encouraging rape, robbery and murder.

Justice Kennedy denies request

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has denied an emergency request by the National Rifle Association to block enforcement of a California city ordinance that bans gun magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets. A court spokesman says Kennedy denied the request without comment. The ban in Sunnyvale went into effect last week after 66 percent of voters approved it in November. The NRA challenged the law, but a federal judge ruled that it does not violate the Second Amendment right to own guns for self-defense. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco denied the

The urban provincials at New York Magazine have found their new Lena Dunham, a novelist named Benjamin Kunkel who they are primping to be the next big thing no one has ever heard of. Way back in 2005, Kunkel wrote a novel no one heard of called "Indecision." This was after he co-founded a New York-based literary journal no one heard of. The New Yorker is gaga over Kunkel, though, and devoted a whopping 3700 words to him and his new book, "Utopia or Bust."

Cadets angry over the Air Force Academy’s removal of the verse have since begun posting scripture from the Bible and the Koran on their whiteboards in solidarity, said Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. “The Air Force Academy has a revolt on their hands.

House vote strikes at Obama´s

The House approved legislation Wednesday that would let Congress file civil suits against the Executive Branch for failing to enforce the laws, a response to what Republicans say is an Obama administration that routinely ignores the will of Congress. Members approved the bill in a 233-181 vote. Every Republican voted for it, along with five Democrats: Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Henry Cuellar (Texas), Pete Gallego (Texas), Collin Peterson (Minn.), and Nick Rahall (W.Va.). The bill is the culmination of years of GOP frustration with Obama´s use of Executive Branch discretion. Republicans have cited Obama´s decisions to deprioritize the deportation of

The ´unprecedented mystery´ behind the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 deepened on Monday when relatives claimed they were able to call the cellphones of their missing loved ones. According to the Washington Post, family of some of the 239 people on board the vanished Boeing 777 said that they were getting ring tones and could see them as online through a Chinese social networking service called QQ. (Snip) Repeatedly telling Malaysian Airlines officials about the QQ accounts and ringing telephone calls, they hoped that modern technology could simply triangulate the GPS signal of the phones and locate their

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy. I think he is semi-delusional about the results of these five years. There is not a spot in the world you -- can go from Syria to Libya to Iran to China, to Russia to Ukraine

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican
