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.

And we wonder why members of the media see a bowl of peas and say to themselves, "Boy...shur wish m´brain was as big as one ´them."

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. Not to be believed, but to be closely monitored as an excellent open source intel media IOT glean where the National and International socialists are headed.

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.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
