Cry, the Misogynistic Country

Johannesburg - IT is a tragic truism that South Africa is one of the world’s most violent countries outside of war zones. And for all of its international headlines, the Valentine’s Day shooting of the model Reeva Steenkamp by the prosthetic-legged Olympic hero Oscar Pistorius is ultimately a very South African story. Mr. Pistorius’s charm, beauty, talent and refusal to live a marginal life as a disabled person made him a marketer’s dream. And for a fragile South Africa, he was a symbol of the country’s obsession with overcoming obstacles. Mr. Pistorius’s personal story reminded us

His personal story of intimidation and violence was hidden by the msm to push a feel good story for the Olympics.

Here we see the mind of a liberal journalist.

The cause of all bad things has to be a politically Correct bad guy. The ultimate bad guy would be a rich white guy with guns. This trumps even being a double amputee athlete (normally an Uber PC person). The reason for Mr. Pistorius´ crime isn´t a personal failure of one man, but failure of all men. Given the slightest opportunity any man, but a white man in particular, will rape and murder a woman.

This is a variation on Godwin´s Law; instead of defining how quickly an issue devolves to a comparison to Nazi´s, the variation is now how quickly it devolves into a comparison of race.

FTA: "IT is a tragic truism that South Africa is one of the world’s most violent countries outside of war zones."

It wasn´t until American and INternational Liberals Progressives got involved and demanded that the Government ´Change´.....

Liberals DESTROY. Everytime a liberal is elected President of the USA, black, brown, yellow and white people die in ever increasing numbers, violently.
EVERY time.

Boy, was this an ode to Liberal race-baiting flow of consciousness filler instead of Reporting, or what?

The man shot his girlfriend. Yes, or no?
Did he admit to it? Yes, or no?
Can he explain why her skull is crushed or what all the yelling was about?

How has this anything to do with racial stereotyping in this NY Times page-filler?

The article doesn´t tell you that Rape in South Africa is rampant and that NO single women should visit the country without armed body guards.

Race is a factor in many of these crimes but most Black on Black crime is NOT reported to the police ......... when the victims are Asian or White the cases may make the news.

A UK S.A. immigrant killed his wife and got away with it ........... and just this month there was a high profile case of a young white woman was abducted, gang raped and murdered.

With Aids rampant in the country´s majority population rape victims had to sue in court to get antiviral meds when sexually assaulted by black rapists.

It´s just a matter of getting a template match.

Template #1: blame all the whites.

Template #2: blame all the rich.

Template #3: blame all the males.

Template #4: blame the whole freaking society.

If the "narrative" can´t been hammered, compressed, and squooshed into templates #1, 2, or 3, go for #4: it´s almost always a comfortable fit.

Sheesh, he could write these things in his sleep. Maybe he does.

MURRAY, KY - When Texas Governor Rick Perry comes to Kentucky, people like to remind him of Jim Bowie, the Kentucky native who died at the Alamo during the Texas Revolution. Perry told a crowd of about 300 Republicans at the Lincoln Reagan Dinner at Murray State University on Saturday night that Bowie was willing to give up everything for freedom. He said he hopes there is a new generation of young men and women that are willing to give up everything to change Kentucky. One thing Perry does not want to change: Kentucky´s senior U.S. senator.

SEOUL—When Park Yong-ok retired as governor of a Korean province last year, he forfeited the perks of a top government job, including a luxury sedan with a chauffeur. But his biggest regret was never going to the province during his four-year tenure. He recalls his appointment at South Korea´s presidential office in 2009. "Governor Park, what are you doing here? You should be in Pyongyang, not here in Seoul!" then-President Lee Myung-bak joked. "I spoke right back to the president with a laugh: ´Yes sir, I am preparing now to go to Pyongyang.´ " Mr. Park, 71 years old, was

If at least for the sake of variation, those charged with riffling through last Friday’s news dumps must have been relieved to find neither new Obamacare delays nor abandoned red lines hiding among the detritus. And yet, while the less technically proficient could have been forgiven for having missed it, an announcement just as vexing was waiting in lieu: that America was planning to give up control of the Internet. At this point in the proceedings, one is customarily chastised by pedants who note impatiently that the United States does not really “control” much of the Internet at all — at

In the state of New York, hundreds gathered near Sarasota Springs in a fiery act of civil disobedience aimed at gun control lawmakers. According to the Post Star, “nearly a thousand gun registration forms were turned into ashes Sunday.” Under NY’s SAFE Act, those who possess what the State of New York considers to be military-style “assault weapons” have to register by April 15th. “Once the Second (Amendment) falls, the rest will go with it. It’s an unconstitutional law, done in the middle of the night with no input from the public,” E.J. Stokes told the Post Star. The NY2A

Is Zaharie Ahmad Shah a real-life Marko Ramius? Is the mystery of Malaysia flight 370 lifted straight from a famous bestselling thriller-turned-Hollywood-blockbuster? Recall: A brand new high tech Soviet nuclear submarine vanishes with officers and full crew aboard. A frantic search begins, though the alarmed Kremlin is silent about the fact that it has been notified by the captain that he intends to defect and hand the sub over to the Americans. The officers — but not the crew — are in on the plan. The Israeli government is alarmed that the vanished Malaysian plane has in fact been hijacked to

The first lady, her mother, her two kids, plus numerous White House aides and security personnel are going to tour China this month, but White House officials are refusing to say how much the taxpayers will pay for the trip. However, they did say it would be a thrill for everyone on the trip, including for Michelle Obama’s top aide, Tina Tchen. “It is a real honor and privilege, and I think we are all, here in the first lady’s office, quite excited about the upcoming trip,” said Chen, just after she declared that “my parents emigrated from China in the late

New York City’s St. Patrick´s Day paraders stepped off Monday without the participation of liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio, and few noticed or cared. In demonstrating his solidarity with militant homosexual groups who were barred from waving their rainbow banners, and not the traditional green ones, Hizzoner became the first mayor in decades not to march in an annual tradition older than the city itself. (Snip)This was nothing about actual tolerance. Homosexuals eager to advertise their persuasion could have marched without drawing attention to their sexuality. They have their own parades, often with displays of the lewd and lascivious.

The United State of America of President Obama is hapless, helpless and hopeless in facing down Russian strongman Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea. Once more on the international stage, Obama’s actions have fallen far short of his rhetoric, cementing the President’s image as a man who recognizes the obligations that come with leading the globe’s only superpower but hasn’t the will or the muscle to carry them out. He draws red lines only to see them quickly erased, along with his credibility. As Putin moved openly toward severing Crimea from Ukraine, Obama warned that the world would isolate Russia for its violations of

At a time when polls show public opinion turning against the Democrats, some Republicans seem to be turning against each other. Even with the prospect of being able to win control of the Senate in this fall’s elections, some Republicans are busy manufacturing ammunition for their own circular firing squad. A Republican faction’s demonization of their own Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, is a classic example. If you listen to some of those who consider themselves the only true conservatives, you would never guess that Sen. McConnell received a lifetime 90 percent ranking by the American Conservative Union — and in

When I hear the phrase “structural problems” coming out of the mouths of elected officials, candidates or political pundits, I immediately assume that I’m about to get another lecture on America’s crumbling infrastructure. (And make no mistake, there are more than a few bridges and roadways that need some work. Pennsylvanians don’t say that their state bird is the traffic cone for nothing.)

Anatomy of a Democratic Midterm Freakout

National Democrats are in a near panic — if the media´s highly-attuned panic detectors are any indicator — with a "poisonous" president unable to use his popularity to sway voters, a "screaming siren" warning about mid-term turnout, and Republicans on the offensive on Obamacare. There are a long eight months until November, but Democrats seem unlikely to get much sleep over the interim. There are (at least!) six reasons why. 1. The midterms were always going to be bad for Democrats because of turnout. It´s important to remember that the midterm elections were always going to be difficult for the

It has been 24 years since the launch of NASA´s Hubble Telescope and to celebrate the anniversary, astronomers captured a photographic series of a star birth nearly 6,400 light-years away. The collection of images showcase a shadowy, dense knot of gas and dust, contrasted against a background of brightly glowing gas. Photographed in February 2014, this celestial photo shoot took place in the Monkey Head nebula, or as it is officially called, NGC 2174. Located in the constellation of Orion, the massive newborn stars photographed -- near the center of the nebula -- are blasting away at dust. Emitted by the bright

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W.

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing.

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed.

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.
