    .No Time for White Guilt Syndrome

    Many Americans attribute Barack Hussein Obama’s electoral victory
    in 2008 to the after-effects of white guilt, a sense of collective
    responsibility for the national sin of slavery even though that institution had
    been abolished more than 150 years earlier and despite the fact no living
    American had any direct involvement in either the slave trade or its
    consequences on blacks.

    Those suffering from the white guilt syndrome helped re-elect Obama
    in 2012 for much the same reasons, reasons which were misplaced and ironic
    considering that the president went on to become the most racist chief executive
    as well as the most racially divisive president in America’s history. . .

    “Truthy”… Will America Allow the Government to Define TRUTH?

    An important article by Judge Andrew Napolitano at:
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/oct/22/napolitano-the-chill-on-free-speech/

    “The NSF’s stated purpose of the Truthy squad is to look for errors
    in speech, particularly errors that fuel hatred or political extremes.”

    We do not need and will not accept a governmental definition of Truth!
    This is just another attempt to crack down on any opposition to Progressive agendas. America needs to continue to speak the Truth without this sort of “CHILLING” by the Powers That Be.

    THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE, but it must not be the “PROGRESSIVE” version of truth!

    From 1995, The Sydney (AUSTRALIA) HERALD

    http://www.ourcivilisation.com/usa/racewar.htm

    • Most victims of race crime—about 90 per cent—are white, according to the survey “Highlights from 20 Years of Surveying Crime Victims”, published in 1993.

    • Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.

    • Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent racial crimes of whites.

    http://downloadpolitics.com/entry.php?643-We-Need-More-GODLESS-RACISS-GAY-FEM-HYSTERIALiberal Blacks With OCD

    CONCLUSIONS:
    OCD among African Americans and Caribbean blacks is very persistent, often accompanied by other psychiatric disorders, and is associated with high overall mental illness severity and functional impairment

    . It is also likely that very few blacks in the United States with OCD are receiving evidence-based treatment and thus considerable effort is needed to bring treatment to these groups.

    Yesterday’s terrorist attack on the Canadian Parliament has produced a genuine counter-moonbat. Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers stopped the wannbe jihadist with the Equalizer and potentially save an unknown number of lives. While his Parliament post is primarily symbolic, clearly his method of stopping the rampage was heroic.

    Knowing nothing about the man’s politics, I still would propose awarding Mr. Vickers a Profile in Counter Moonbattery award. He proved what Wayne LaPierre said many months ago: ““The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” Fortunately, even in a country with excessive restrictions on gun ownership, Mr. Vickers is a good guy.

    Since we’re on the subject:

    Do Gun Bans Work? – A Canadian Story/Study
    Has any of that kept the province safer from mass-shootings? The answer in short, is no. In my lifetime alone, in my home city (not province, but city) alone, I’ve witnessed…

    The Montreal Massacre: In 1989, Marc Lepine separated male from female students at the “École Polytechnique”, claiming that he was “fighting feminism” and shot twenty eight people before killing himself. He specifically targeted women to execute. Sickening. Fifteen were killed.

    The Concordia Massacre: In 1992, Dr. Valery I. Fabrikant took three guns to Concordia university, opening fire on the ninth floor of the Henry F. Hall building. He shot five people, killing four. Here’s the worst part… thanks to Canadian’s lenient laws toward criminals, Fabrikant will be up for parole in 2017. Wow.

    Dawson College Shooting: This one hit very close to home for me. Why? Dawson was my second choice for college. I instead opted to attend Champlain college, a mere couple miles across the Saint Lawrence river. I remember talking to some of best friends who were there, holed up in classrooms, hiding behind desks as the evil goth-kid went on his rampage. Kimveer Gill only managed to kill one person, though he injured 19 amidst his shooting spree.

    All three occurred in “gun free” zones.

    So when people say that Canada’s restrictive gun laws are a success, I have to scoff. Why? I’ve lived it. I was alive when these atrocities were committed. Many Canadians will tell you the same. It’s for those same reasons that despite politicians pushing legislation, ninety percent of Canadians do not want more restrictive gun laws.

    In Illinois, Vote Fraud Called ‘Calibration Error’
    Voter Fraud: As early voting begins in the Land of Lincoln, President Obama casts his ballot and a Republican state senator voting for himself finds that his ballot was counted for his opponent. Eric Holder, call your office.

    The day after resigning as attorney General, Eric Holder told the Congressional Black Caucus that the voter ID laws he and his Justice Department opposed were answers to a problem that “doesn’t exist.” Yet when President Obama left the golf course Monday to vote early in his home state of Illinois, he was asked to present his ID before casting his ballot.
    [..]
    What she failed to point out is that the president himself, like all early Illinois voters, is required by law to present a valid government-issued photo ID to cast his early vote. As we’ve noted repeatedly, there’s no evidence voter ID laws suppress minority voting.

    Judging from the polls, any voting suppressed this November will be due to the president’s failed policies, which he has insisted are on the ballot in every state.

    Moonbat Professor: “Only Way” To Save Planet From Global Warming Is To “Terminate Industrial Civilization”…
    In other words, he’s insane.
    Via Daily Caller:

    Mankind is doomed unless we immediately de-industrialize and slash carbon dioxide emissions, according to Guy McPherson, emeritus professor from the University of Arizona.

    McPherson appeared on Paul Henry’s New Zealand-based talk program to warn that global warming was “irreversible” and the only way to stop it is to “terminate industrial civilization.”

    “I think there’s ample chance we can save the living planet, but not our species. … Some people think that this whole thing is about us,” McPherson told the Paul Henry Show. “We just showed up… I don’t think this is about us, I think it’s about the living planet.”

    “The only way to stop runaway climate change is to terminate industrial civilization,” he said. “The evidence is clear on that front and it is in the refereed journal literature.”
