United States is raising
a nation of savages

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/22/2013 8:57:31 AM

Christopher Lane was gunned down in cold blood – shot in the back as he jogged alongside a road in Duncan, Okla. His alleged attackers were teenagers who told police they were bored and killed the college athlete for “the fun of it.” The 22-year-old was attending school at East Central University – an Australian native who played baseball. Good Samaritans saw the shooting and immediately rushed to offer aid. One person called 911. Another tried to administer CPR. But it was too late. The young athlete with a promising future lingered for several minutes – gasping for air. And then he

Liberals champion:

1--black thug culture

It seems there is finally much more criticism of the problems inherent in black culture in the country. Perhaps finally we will be permitted to state the facts about this publicly and be able to criticize and demand change. As Charles Murray points out in his book Coming Apart Americans are forbidden from any and all criticism of the behaviors of the lower classes and our government policies that contribute to and cause it.

The feral youths who used to be pretty much located in inner city neighborhoods predated the liberal focus on Islam, #1. Experts have worried for years that children were growing up without parental supervision, education and any moral guidance. Now, we are seeing it in small-town Oklahoma. Drugs, gangs, unemployment all exacerbate the existing problems and no one seems to have any solutions. Nothing will be easy and it certainly won´t be fast, but we need to do something

I read an interesting article recently about the murder rate in Sweden and the USA.......it seems that if one removes all data about blacks, then the murder rate in the USA is actually lower then Sweden.

President Monroe had the right idea, but was not fully implemented sadly. Put them all on a boat and send them to Liberia.

In addition to the savage problem, one might consider that our drinking water is loaded with female hormones, as a byproduct of the "pill", which has got to be changing our very manhood.

Religion is a belief in a power greater than oneself...historically that was the God of the Bible. Democrats taught a generation that government is the church where we go to worship ourselves. And the worship of self breeds savagery. I think this article is accurate.

Scripture says we will see the day when man will hate good and love evil. That´s modern liberalism that today finds its home in the Democrat Party. Evil controls the Democrat Party; I.e. The party of Satan.

Or should I say (in the fashion of our president) if Satan had a political party, it would look like the Democrat Party.

FTA: "We live in a nation that celebrates and glorifies violence. The proof is in our movies, our music, and our athletic pastimes."

Okay. I´m sick to death of that Lib Line Crappola.

If the parents of these savages were perhaps in the home rather in jail, or involved in their children´s lives, rather than sitting on the back porch smoking crack, using television and x-boxes for baby sitters, there would be fewer savages.

About the only thing good [and I´m not sure "good" is the right word, just the only one I can think of] that might come out of this senseless killing in Oklahoma, is that attention might get focused on this nation of savages that years upon countless years of LBJ´s Great Society has raised. What´s not good is that the Libs, elected and un-elected, will do what Libs always do: declare that more federal tax dollars must be thrown at the problem, and that guns must be outlawed.

No Lib is ever going to mention the fact that it was the Federal Government that made it profitable for women to have babies without the benefit of marriage, and if there wasn´t a father in the household it was even more profitable.

Some of us are old enough to remember in-tact households --white and black, but that was before the Federal Government via LBJ got involved.

No worries, if you are a white person the chances that you will be "dropped" by a black "thug" in retribution for slavery or some other perceived grievance are still pretty low. But just wait until the social welfare networks by which most of those "thugs" survive runs out of everyone else´s money and see what will happen. Why do you think so many people all over the country have been stocking up on guns and ammunition. When the "reset" comes, it will probably be bloody, but in the end the "thugs" will not have a chance.

Babies having babies. Killing a high % of unborn children, denigrating any sense of achievement, no fathers, add drugs and alcohol and wonder why there is no hope. Along comes the local community organizer offering phones and cash, EBT cards, rent subsidies, food stamps, etc etc to not only condone the behavior but to encourage it. Finally call anyone even mentioning the truth an uncle Tom or a racist. Voila Obie the great!

The headline is not correct. Savages they are, but the problem is that they are NOT being raised. They are just turned loose on their own in society ignorant and full of anger. Then their behavior is encouraged by the likes of our race-baiting president and others. This is impossible to deny, simply review Obama´s statements on race during his presidency. This man is a disgrace to America.

And then we get lectures from both 0bama and 0prah that we should not treat blacks differently. 0bama said it is wrong, he has personally seen whites lock their car doors when they saw him as a black man coming toward them, 0prah was not shown a $38,000 purse because the white woman saw that she was black. Why are these two so ignorant, and why don´t they use their money and influence to help the young black savages become better people. I lock my car doors, because I was robbed twice by black men; plain and simple common sense.

Obama is spreading a culture of hate, hate for America, hate for Whites and other "Makers" by the "Takers" and above all he in empowering by his twisted retoric the thugs in our society...and if they aren´t already thugs he´s making more.

This won´t end well as common people start standing up to the thugery!

In my opinion, Obama is the most devicive person ever to hold high office. He makes Jesse Jackass and Al Dullton seem normal by comparison.

If we passed a law that took away welfare benefits, free housing and their precious SNAP card when one of their children committed a crime, you would be surprised how involved these wretched parents would become. Right now a single black mother with seven or more children takes no responsibility for the havoc their wretched kids do.

I get really annoyed when articles say WE, THE UNITED STATES, is becoming violent. No, WE are not. Certain segments of society are extremely violent but it is not PC to point that out. Removing those ultra violent groups from the statistics shows the rest of us are not particularly violent.

We know WHERE the problem lies.

And yet, there is great anger that so many of the violent segment of society are imprisoned for their acts. Rather than face the fact that their ACTIONS caused their imprisonment, they moan they are imprisoned because of their race, a complete lie. But it is not PC to point that out so the cycle of violence continues.

Don´t talk to me about ´morality´ if you don´t believe there is an ultimate authority (God) who made the rules we must abide by. Without God, then ´morality´ is just an opinion. And your opinion is no more valid than Jeffrey Dahmer´s. Dahmer said he had evolved beyond the need for ´god´ and that ´morality´ was just instinctual developments to preserve ´the pack.´ He had evolved beyond that. This savage subculture is a result of the denial of ultimate rules everyone must abide by.

"Savages" is right. Yet when on Twitter I told John Podhoretz that ghetto thugs are feral animals, he told me to keep such "racist pig" comments out of "his" thread. I rejoined that thugs are feral animals regardless of race, color, ethnicity or religion, but by then he had quit listening and blocked me.

Yet if we dodge and duck to avoid calling things and people by the right names, we won´t be able properly to decide what to do about them. Words matter. "Savages" is on the right track; so was "feral animals."

Besides the obvious common denominators in this recent "hate crime" wave there is another problem here. Boredom. I´ve recently had several visiting relatives tell stories about younger family members (in different towns) who have recently gone on disability. One person really needs it, but the rest are using their free time to "check out", do drugs & get into trouble. Another one who retired in the past year took over his small-town food bank as a volunteer. Out of the MANY who are receiving free food- almost none is willing to volunteer their time helping out at the food bank. I was raised & spent time around the older ones who believed that idleness was actually a SIN. I had great aunts & uncles who farmed, ranched, volunteered & took PT jobs many years after retirement. These people were always busy & never bored. Cut OFF the free stuff & make people scratch for a living again. This stuff will stop when these well-fed, over-indulged animals are kept busy just trying to survive.

I agree with the sentiment. A great deal has to do with women raising children on their own and not doing too good a job. Perhaps when Americans go back to ´families´, i.e. mother and father bringing up kids it might change. Having kids because ´another welfare check is on the way´ produces this kind of offspring! First Americans might want to sober up and kick the overuse of drugs, alcohol, and other ´aides´!

The United States isn´t raising these barbarians! The reason all of this is happening is that people have forgotten God. It really is that simple.

"We´ve staked the whole future of American civilization not on the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us...to govern ourselves according to commandments of God. The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which the Constitution is founded."

In reference to getting rid of welfare, I remember a medical documentary in which a woman had to have a two-hundred pound tumor removed by surgery. It was a daunting operation and had the potential to kill her. To me, welfare is that two-hundred pound tumor; it will not be easy to get rid of it.

No, we have a nation of feral youth without fathers and mothers that earn a living by popping out more feral youth. We have a nation of kids that no amount of after school programs, no amount of AA jobs, no amount of free healthcare, clothes, free school supplies, free food, and our money will help.

We sure don´t want them to follow the laws of the nation. Put mamma in jail instead.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now."

The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

AMSTERDAM -- Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam´s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. How, the survivors asked, could they be on the hook for taxes due while Hitler´s regime was trying to exterminate them? A typical response was: "The base fees and the fines for late payment must be satisfied, regardless of whether a third party,

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

House Democrats, battered by Koch brothers ads and facing a grim outlook for the midterms, are providing the clearest indication yet of how they plan to respond: By shoring up imperiled incumbents and only the most promising challengers, but most likely leaving some of the party’s upstart hopefuls to fend for themselves. The strategy, detailed in nearly two dozen interviews with party officials and strategists, is a tacit acknowledgement of the ominous political environment Democrats are up against this year. The goal is to stop Republicans from padding their 17-seat edge and keep the party within striking distance of the majority

Washington – The National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group tasked with getting Republicans elected to the Senate, believes Republicans have expanded the 2014 playing field with five more contested races as the GOP seeks to retake control of the chamber. In a memo released to consultants Friday morning, NRSC political director Ward Baker writes that Republicans have become competitive in Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, Oregon and Minnesota since the start of the year. That´s in addition to nearly 10 Senate seats the NRSC has been aggressively targeting.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
