The Irony of Al Sharpton Whining about Receiving Death Threats in Wake of the NYPD Officers Murdered

Picture4

One has to bask, not in pleasure but in the sheer genius of Karma and the irony of Al Shaprton receiving death threats after two NYPD officers were murdered in the names of “Eric Garner” and “Mike Brown” by Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley.

The Rev. Al Sharpton claimed Sunday that he’s received death threats in the wake of execution-style murders of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.

Sharpton, appearing alongside the wife and mother of Eric Garner, played a voicemail for reporters purportedly of a racist threat made against him.

“Hey n—-r, stop killing innocent people, I’m going to get you!” according to the barely audible recording.

The voice mail also included three f-bombs that went over live television in New York.


Before we address the alleged death threats, one would best be reminded of the famous words Booker T. Washington spoke over 100 years ago as they rightfully describe individuals in our society like the Al Sharpton’s, Jesse Jackson’s and Eric Holders:


“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

“I am afraid that 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.”

And the very people that Washington described above are alive and well, increasing the racial divisions, inciting anger so perverse that those rioting feel they have a right to loot, destroy and burn down businesses, cars and homes that do not belong to them. And by refusing to allow the deep-rooted wounds of the past to heel so that he can remain relevant, wield some perverse power so that he can earn money while keeping the “patient” sick – and not paying over $4 million in taxes, but that is a debate for another day.

As he whines about being threatened via voice-mail messages, he then proceeds to state that he is turning over the alleged threatening voice-mails to the FBI. Really? One of the many policing agencies in America that you are not only openly protesting against, but have incited so much hatred that there are death threats against “white cops”, against “all pigs”, and people joining in on your marches and protests chanting “What do we want? Dead Cops!!”; so much hate and demands for violence yet you not only did not instruct them to stop with the violent rhetoric while they were chanting in YOUR presence, you did not denounce it afterwards.

For someone who titles himself a “Reverend”, it is quite amusing that one would forget the following:

Galatians 7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. 8For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.…

To Al Sharpton – YOU built this and now you can reap what you built.

Perception: It’s Not Always as Black and White as One Assumes

It is important to watch the video first, to further appreciate the context below.

Watch The Video BEFORE You Read the Story! Pay Attention!

This video is of actual Detectives attempting to stop a CRIMINAL in Chicago. This Video was taken by a Police Officer Videographer who, was also in harm’s way.

WATCH the Video First… Two or Three Times if You Want…

WHAT DID YOU SEE???? Officers ordered the suspect to put the assault rifle down, and that is what he is doing, Right? it appears he is complying and then they shoot him!!!OMG, he is shot! Is that what you saw? Do you want to know what it is like to work the streets as a cop, and what risks our Officers face daily?

Watch the video again… Watch the suspect’s right hand while he places the rifle down with his left hand. What you don’t see by facing this Criminal face to face, but the Officer behind the suspect does see, is the suspect pulling a hidden handgun from his rear pants, with his right hand. {back-up yells “Gun”
before firing}Watch as the bad guy goes down….. the handgun is still in his right hand. This is a reminder… What you think you see at does not always tell the truth.Watch it again, and learn!


Tamir Rice – Lack of Parental Supervision and Personal Responsibility

Dear Society,

At some point, hopefully in the very near future, you will wake the Hell up and start holding people responsible for their choices/their own behaviors and stop blaming others for the end results that occurs after they choose to engage in those choices.

Tamir Rice shooting – Cleveland, Ohio: Police are dispatched to a “gun run”, which essentially equates to a person in possession of a gun who is brandishing said weapon in a public place. The dispatcher never relayed to the officers that the person of interest “may” have a fake/toy gun or that he “may” be under the age of 18 years:

Surveillance video released by police shows Tamir being shot within 2 seconds of the patrol car stopping near him. In that time, Officer Timothy Loehmann told the boy to put his hands up, but he didn’t, according to police brass and Follmer. Tamir had nearly pulled the gun out of his waistband when Loehmann shot him, Follmer said.

Officer Frank Garmback pulled into the park after seeing Tamir at a distance and slammed on the brakes when Tamir did not run, as they had expected, Follmer said. That caused the car to slide on the slick grass and stop within a few feet of the boy, Follmer said.

Garmback and Loehmann had discussed tactics while approaching the park, Follmer said. Garmback was Loehmann’s field training officer that day.

The officers also thought they were confronting someone around 20 years old, not 12, Follmer said. They didn’t learn Tamir’s age until later in the day.

“In their mindset, they’re still thinking it’s an older male, not a 12-year-old kid,” Follmer said. “That’s the reality. That’s what they see right there, right then.”

An autopsy released Friday said Tamir was 5 feet 7 and weighed 195 pounds.

With all of the “outrage” over officers shooting a 12 year old who was brandishing a fake gun, though he removed the identifying objects that would indicate it is not a real gun, where was his mother? Where was his father and who gave him this gun with the idea that it was not only okay to take the weapon outside without the identifying marks that indicate its not a real gun, but to point the gun at people not to mention pull it out when approached by police officers?

Again, don’t look at the person committing the crimes, instead look at the officers forced to deal with the offenders and the crimes they commit. It is so much easier to blame the person forced to deal with the criminal element in our society, heaven forbid the officer chose to do nothing and let the kid keep walking towards him as he is reaching for the gun – quick, you have only a few seconds to react:

10805715_377222659119074_6512431782445025402_n

And yes, we can do without the incessant whining of “he was 12 years old, he was just a kid” mantra. 12 year olds have and do murder other individuals. To some how state that because he was 12 years old, walking around with a gun that HE altered to make look real while HE was pointing it at other people, that some how he was too young to know what he was doing is, well BS.

Again, I go back to the parents – where the Hell were they? Why was he not being supervised? If his mother was so concerned about his welfare, what was she doing and why was he outside with a gun pointing it at people? Fake or not is irrelevant, you do not point fake guns at people in a public place – well, the rule of thumb is you do not point guns at people regardless, unless you intend to shoot it.

Dear “Concerned Parents”,

Yes, all officers should take full responsibilities for their actions. THAT BEING SAID…let’s play pretend. Let’s say a little black boy was in the park with a gun in his pants, flashing it to “get respect”, and officers arrived on the scene. Your kid is the one afraid to go down the slide…the cop approaches…

Cop – son, I need you to set that gun on the ground and walk towards me

Boy – lifts his shirt and says what…this…ain’t even real.

Cop – that doesn’t matter son, you’re scaring these people, now I need you to set it on the ground and walk towards me.

Boy – pulls out the gun, finger on the trigger and says “what I can’t carry a you gun?”

Cop – unsnaps holster with his hand on his gun but leaves it in the holster

Boy – takes aim

Cop – stays calm, after all it’s a “toy”

Boy – smiles, squeezes the trigger, misses the cop and hits your son with a .38…

Cop – shoots kid

Now you’re pissed at the cop for not reacting quicker. 2 kids are dead.

If you do not want your kid to wind up dead by police, teach him/her where respect really comes from. Teach him/her why there are laws. Teach him/her that a little cooperation and coexistence…goes a long way!

With respect to this incident, I almost have to wonder how the State can NOT file a child endangerment charge against the mother. Again, personal responsibility, which also reaches out to the children you CHOSE to have yet clearly are not properly caring for or supervising – own it!


Ferguson – Michael Brown and Personal Responsiblity

Freedom brings men rudely and directly face to face with their own personal responsibility for their own free actions.
Frank Meyer, In Defense of Freedom (1962)

 
At what point in our society did personal responsibility fall to the wayside? It is as if we are no longer personally responsibility for the choices we make, the behaviors we engage in or the words we use, rather we are a victim based society where other individuals and outlying issues are used to place blame for the choices we make. And what exactly has this accomplished? A vicious cycle breeding more offenders who bear zero responsibility for their behaviors while the victims suffer the blame, society is to blame, parents, siblings and neighbors are to blame. Everyone and everything is to blame for the offenders behavior, except the offender. Queue in Ferguson, Michael Brown and Officer Darren Wilson.

During the entire Ferguson ordeal between Officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown, at what point was Michael Brown responsible for the outcome of that tragic day? Was it Brown’s responsibility when he chose to rob a convenience store? Was it Brown’s responsibility when he chose to assault the store clerk who confronted him for the theft? Was it Brown’s responsibility at the point he chose to viciously attack Officer Darren Wilson in his patrol car? Was it Brown’s responsibility when he chose to try and steel Officer Darren Wilson’s duty weapon from him? Was it Brown’s responsibility when he chose to leave the scene of his crime or was it when he turned around and charged at Officer Darren Wilson like a defensive lineman?

At what point, in any of those given situations was it Michael Brown’s responsibility for his own actions; how at any given point in each of those steps, had Brown chosen differently, the proceeding events would not have occurred?

Certain segments within our society choose to ignore the behaviors Brown chose to engage in and instead attack the officer, but why? Because Brown is dead? An 18 year old adult male who was shot while in commission of a violent felony against a police officer, one that would have ended the police officers life had, at any point Brown accomplished the task of continually beating the officer while successfully stealing his duty weapon. There is no reason to steal an officers duty weapon other than to further engage in the crime you are currently choosing to commit. If not, then why try to steal an officers duty weapon while the officer is seated in his patrol car struggling with you as you are beating on him?

It is as though Officer Darren Wilson should have sat in his patrol car, allowed Brown to viciously beat him, possibly take his gun and shoot him with it; and that because Wilson did not, he is now somehow, at least in the eyes of a certain segment of our society, responsible for the outcome of Brown and Brown’s own choices.

Michael Brown, like most of humanity have (had) free will. Brown made his conscious choices, but with those choices came responsibilities to those choices. Maybe it is here, that humanity learns a lesson from its blessing of free will and obligation to mind its choices and own the rewards and consequences that come with those choices.

“See now, how men consider us gods responsible [aitioi] for what is after all nothing but their own folly. Look at Aigisthos; he must needs make love to Agamemnon’s wife unrighteously and then kill Agamemnon, though he knew it would be the death of him; for I sent Hermes to warn him not to do either of these things, inasmuch as Orestes would be sure to take his revenge when he grew up and wanted to return home. Hermes told him this in all good will but he would not listen, and now he has paid for everything in full.” Zeus  via Homer’s The Odyssey


The American Dream: “It’s Called The American Dream Because You Have To Be Asleep To Believe It”~ George Carlin

american_dream

But there is a reason, there’s a reason. There is a reason for this. There is a reason education sucks. And its the same reason that it will never ever ever get fixed. Its never gonna get better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the “owners” of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now. The big wealthy businesses interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget about the politicians; politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have the Freedom of Choice.

YOU DON’T! You have no choice.

You have owners. THEY OWN YOU! They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They have long since paid for and bought the Senate, Congress, State Houses, the City Halls. They got the judges in their back pockets.They own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear.

They got ya by the balls!!!

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.

But I’ll tell you what they  don’t want – they do not want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They do not want a well informed well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that.That doesn’t help them. That is against their interest

 

They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they are getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fucking years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all of these increasing shittier jobs with the lower pay, longer hours, reduced benefits, end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

Now they’re coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And ya know something, they’ll get. They’ll get it all from ya  sooner or later because they own this fucking place.

It’s a big club and YOU AIN’T IN IT! You and I are not in the Big Club.

By the way its the same Big Club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long when they are telling you in the media what to believe, what to think and what to buy.

The table is tilted folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard working people; white collar blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about them. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you.

At all! At All! At All!

And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. And that is what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant about the Big Red, White and Blue dick that is being jammed up their ass holes every day.

Because the owners of this country know the truth: Its called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.


Stop Labeling the Troops ‘Heroes’

1207-purple-heart.jpg

Stop Labeling the Troops ‘Heroes‘, rants Salon reporter David Masciotra; a reporter no doubt protected under the First Amendment that was secured and is still secured for him by the very people he dictates to you not to view as heroes. I suppose the irony is lost on this poor soul.

Take careful note that in the very first sentence of his nonsensical diatribe, he not only takes a jab at our men and women in uniform but ignorantly decided that invoking race into the equation is absolutely necessary so as to encourage more “outrage” from the start. As though only a white man, or as Masciotra put it “put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him.” only wear the military uniform armed with a gun.

I often wonder if free people, like Masciotra ever realize what would have taken place had Al Qaeda been fully successful on 9/11; had they been permitted to inflict even more damage and infiltrated America further, so much so to the point that his Freedom of Speech and the Press would be significantly violated. Doubtful, as individuals like Masciotra take this for granted as an absolute with no ongoing protections necessary.

The fools. How was Afghanistan in the 1960’s vs Today?

This may be cut directly from a Hollywood script but I think it illustrates a point that may be forgotten here:

” Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know, that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives! You don’t want the truth, because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall. We use words like “honor”, “code”, “loyalty”. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said “thank you”, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to! ” – COL N. Jessup (USMC)

Because I am sure in Afghanistan, Syria, Saudi Arabia or Iran, women would be permitted to behave exactly like this woman did and men would be allowed to take a crap on that country’s flag in public without fear of being beaten, or worse; you know, because Freedom of Speech is exactly the same across the globe that never needs protection: 1231313          OWS_Crapper1
