I still have more to say about the tolerant left accusing Fox Cable News of disparaging the poor, but I’m giving that a rest today because I came upon an article on Talking Points Memo that I came upon article that I want to write about. I’ll continue my “Liberals Gone Wild” series next week.
As many of you who read my posts regularly know, I have a folder in my favorites called “Stupid Liberal Articles,” and it is quite large. The article I just added is from talkingpointsmemo.com dated May 21, 2015 and authored by Jesse J. Holland. It is entitled, “Differing Portrayals of Waco, Baltimore Spur Reflection, WTFs.” I’m not going to speculate on what Mr. Holland means by “WTFs”. If it stands for what we all think it stands for, this is just another example of classless liberalism.
Being an unenlightened oaf, I had to read the article through a couple of times and study it to get the gist of what it means and I’m still not sure I have it right, but I’m doing my best to interpret it.
The author appears to be complaining about the riots in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland getting excessive media attention while the gun between police and bikers where nine bikers were killed is getting practically no attention. Mr. Holland indicates that while there were no deaths during the Baltimore and Ferguson protests, people immediately stereotyped all of the protesters as criminals. Holland goes on to say that we haven’t heard the level of disgust and dismay as you did over fires burning in Ferguson and in Baltimore. Civil rights attorney Charles F. Coleman, Jr. said only minority communities get blamed for violence, while no one blames white families or white communities for fatal violence by white men, characterizing such events as “isolated incidents.” Holland also remarked about how the current President of the United States described the Baltimore looters as “thugs,” and the media devoted hours of television and radio airtime to dissecting the social ills that affect the black community.
First of all, there’s a big difference. There were no protesting and no rioting in Waco. The Waco incident was a local matter and is being handled locally as it should be.
Having said all of the above, MR. HOLLAND, HOW CAN YOU BE SO STUPID? You appear to be griping because the media is not covering Waco like they covered Ferguson and Baltimore. Looters in Ferguson and Baltimore were labeled as thugs and were looting and rioting. Most were black and were protesting and rioting because two black men had been shot and killed by two white policeman. When speculation rose regarding the actions of the police, matters should have been handled locally. If they had been handled locally, the media would not have covered these two incidents. Unrest escalated in Ferguson and Baltimore because of the likes of Al Sharpton and other race hustlers moving in and whipping up the folks. Also, it has been alleged that billionaire liberal operative George Soros indirectly funded the protests and riots that took place in both cities. Liberals everywhere rushed to judgment in both incidents, championing Michael Brown and Freddie Gray and demonizing the police. We all know liberals don’t care about facts. They decide how they want an outcome to be and if it doesn’t turn out the way they want it to turn out, they protest and riot, claiming racism, sexism, and whatever other “ism” they can find. Again forget facts and forget fairness. This is how liberals operate.
And to make matters worse, the current President of the United States weighed in and it was not his place to weigh in on either the Ferguson situation or the Baltimore situation. Again, these were local matters and should have been handled locally. But our current President is half black and a racist to boot. He was a community organizer in Chicago before being elected State Senator in Illinois, then U.S. Senator, then President of the United States. He attended a church where anti-American radicalism was preached and hung out with the likes of Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn of the seventies radical group, Weather Underground. Bill Ayers and members of the Weather Underground bombed the Pentagon and to this day Ayers is not sorry for what he did. We have a president that despises the United States of America and whose goal is to destroy the United States of America through different methods, including following Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals which includes undermining authority which would include our local police forces.
Mr. Holland, if you’re upset because the media focused on Ferguson and Baltimore, depicting the struggles of black Americans, and that certain factions were blaming black Americans for the rioting in these two cities, you need to take things up with the likes of Al Sharpton, George Soros, the tolerant left, and the current President of the United States. They’re the ones who promoted the protesting and rioting, along with the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. I included the tolerant left in my list of folks to blame for the media coverage of Ferguson and Baltimore. It was the tolerant left that kept the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie going even after it was concluded that Michael Brown never had his hands up, nor was he running from the police.
Why aren’t there protests and riots in Waco after the shootout where nine bikers, labeled thugs, were killed after causing trouble? It’s been indicated that those who were part of the biker gangs were mostly white and Hispanic. The skin color of the Waco police officers involved was not reported and I don’t care about the skin color of the police in Waco. White folks were killed by the police, so Al Sharpton, the current President, George Soros, and the tolerant left don’t care about white folks. In fact, they are waging a war on white folks.
I’m a white woman who lives in central Alabama. I’m working seven days a week to make my small business profitable so that I can be my own boss and not have to go back to working for jerks. Being a conservative, I don’t see things in terms of race. Civil rights legislation was signed into law a half century ago. What do I think about Waco? It was bad, but I’m a police supporter and feel that if any nefarious actions took place, investigation and prosecution of these actions should be handled at the local level.
