Violent Communist agitators march on Wall Street

The police have arrested hundreds of violent communist agitators at the Wall Street protests.

What, they aren’t communists driven by a hatred for capitalism, nor violent, you say?  Well I have the photographic evidence, here

CAPITALISM DOESN'T WORK

and here

CAPITALISM IS ORGANIZED CRIME

to prove that they are.

Just as the Tea Party was primarily motivated by racism because the Liberal media found a few offensive placards to highlight for their evening broadcasts, these rallies are communist.  Not Liberal, nor socialist, nor Democrat, mind you, but COMMUNIST.  You may therefore disregard whatever they have to say about the Wall Street fat cats.  Moreover, they are racist.  Yes, RACIST!  In the clip below we provide hard proof of this racism as they violently drive a BLACK Democrat congressman, Charles Rangel, from the streets.  Libs are so right, this really is a racist country!  Take particular notice of how they have to remind themselves it is a “peaceful” rally lest the violence spiral out of control.

Pay no attention to the fact, however, that nobody (least of all themselves) knows what these Mac-using, latte sipping hippies are protesting about, or even what they want done.  Protesting “greed” and “Wall Street” are not a set of demands that can be negotiated with or bargained for.

Rebel without a clue.

Leftist Crank calls Herman Cain (a black man) a racist! lol

There is nothing, it seems, that can immunize a Republican come election season against the Leftist race baiting.  Not even if he’s black!  Here Leftist activist and very angry black man Cornell Belcher accuses Herman Cain of being a racist because he believes blacks have been “brainwashed” into voting Democrat.

CORNELL BELCHER: What is the definition of “racism” or “bigotry”? It is in fact putting a blank statement on a whole group of people. And again, Anderson, I guarantee you, if I came on your program and said that all Jewish people were brainwashed, you wouldn’t invite me back on this — on CNN. I would not be back on CNN. I’m sure of that. There’s a double standard here. I think this is a teachable moment.

ARI FLEISCHER: Let me jump in. I’m not — I’m not going to dwell on this topic, but remember the question was about people being poisoned about a party. So there’s a presumption in the question also that just flows from the fact that 90 to 95 percent of African-Americans vote a certain way.  But when people start throwing the word “racism” around that’s when I end the conversation because you cannot have an intelligent conversation when people are accusing people in the public square of that. So I’m not even want to get into that topic.

Yes, there is a double standard here, Cornell, and it’s coming from you.

Leftists like this Cornell Belcher love to smear entire swathes of conservative blacks like Herman Cain as “Uncle Toms”, and that’s not considered racist. But if Herman Cain responds that blacks like this moron Belcher are “brainwashed”, that is a racist statement. Those are the rules of this Democrat race baiting blood sport.

Leftist Cranks say Racist Republicans Support Herman Cain (a black man) to Hide their racism

Filed under: Feminism, Race, Tea Party — Tags: — Jesusland @ 13:42

If I hear another liberal pull the race card, I think I am going to punch a baby. It’s pathetic, annoying, and anyone with half a brain can see right through it.  Here Janeane Garofalo bloviates with Ted Baxter:

“Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party.”

Well, that’s kind of ridiculous considering it’s precisely those “racist elements” of the GOP which gave him the straw poll victory in Florida (i.e., the Tea Party).  Who are they trying to cover up for, themselves?  lol  Clearly, logic is not her strong suit.

“People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert.  And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'”

Janeane is off her meds again.  Her first mistake is assuming that just because Tea Party favorite Herman Cain is black he therefore can’t be anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-female, etc.  He may even be a racist for all she knows.  In which case, he provides us no cover at all.  Which pretty much blows her theory out of the water, don’t you think?  lol

Of course, other than their accusations of racism, the race baiters never provide any actual evidence of racism.

Pink Witches, white paper, political correctness run amuck

Sanitized and sterilized for your viewing safety.

Modern Liberals are crazy.  Straight up.  Not bad people mind you, just sick puppies the whole lot of them.  When you read this article, keep in mind that as the further and faster racism recedes from our culture, the more DESPERATELY these Sec Progs try to find it.  They NEED racism to exist because as racism recedes, so does the modern Liberal’s relevance.  They lose a major raison d’etre with racism gone.   Not to mention it makes a fairly useful club against their hated enemies on the Right.  And where a Lib means to find racism, believe you me, he will find it!

Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says

From the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz to Meg, the good witch from the Meg and Mog children’s books, witches have always dressed in black.  But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.

Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.  Another staple of the classroom – white paper – has also been questioned by Anne O’Connor, an early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.

Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in “the full range of flesh tones”, reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher.  Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer “black” or “brown”.

The measures, outlined in a series of guides in Nursery World magazine, are aimed at avoiding racial bias in toddlers as young as two.  According to the guides, very young children may begin to express negative and discriminatory views about skin colour and appearance that nursery staff must help them “unlearn”.

If children develop positive associations with dark colours, the greater the likelihood that the attitude will be generalised to people, it says.  The advice is based on an “anti-bias” approach to education which developed in the United States as part of multiculturalism.

Ah, there it is, that scourge of Western civilization– multiculturalism.  Not surprised to see its fingerprints on this one.  Next on the sec prog agenda, outlaw toy witches (might offend the pagans).  More secular progressive madness here.

Herman Cain victory in Florida demolishes Democrat racism meme

FL Teabaggers choose Herman Cain.

In other news, Teabbagers and other assorted southern “rednecks” just gave Herman Cain a resounding victory against Rick Perry and Mitt Romney in the Florida straw poll.  There goes the race baiting leg of the Dem platform for 2012!  Hard to be a racist when you vote black, isn’t it?

The Leftist race baiting meme simply cannot survive this simple reality, Herman Cain being a BLACK MAN and all.  Unlike Barack Obama, Cain was born in the black community, raised in poverty, is a self-made man with a fantastic track record to show for in the REAL WORLD.  In other words, he is Barack Obama’s worst nightmare.  He is the anti Barack Obama, who himself is a half-white, pseudo black man who didn’t even grow up in the black community and has never known poverty, being raised by his rich white banker grandma and sent to Hawaii’s most elite high schools, then Yale, and “talks black” but only in front of a black audience.  He’s a man of priviledge, groomed for the ivory tower, yet whose track record in academia has been sealed away from prying eyes lest it reveal something about him they don’t want you to see.  The quintessential blank slate.

Nevertheless, if and when we vote for Herman Cain, we’ll be voting for the content of his character, not his skin color.

Cain upsets Perry in Florida Republican straw poll

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) – Former pizza executive Herman Cain surprised rival Rick Perry with an upset victory on Saturday in a nonbinding Republican presidential straw poll in Florida, dealing a disappointing loss to the Texas governor two days after a shaky debate performance.  Perry, leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, had needed a victory in the key test of strength in a crucial state to salve the wounds left over from a debate with his rivals on Thursday in which he struggled.

Instead, former Godfather’s Pizza executive Cain, who is far behind the two top-tier candidates Perry and Mitt Romney, won with 37 percent of 2,657 votes cast.

Perry was a distant second at 15 percent, just ahead of Romney, who won 14 percent despite not participating in the poll. Further back were Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann. Florida’s straw poll is a nonbinding popularity poll and is significant only in terms of showing a candidate’s strength in the state. The state contests to determine the Republican nominee do not start until early next year.

The Perry camp shrugged off the results.  “Cain won, we still have work to do,” said Perry spokesman Mark Miner. “It’s his day. The conservative message won today. We’ve been in this race for five weeks. We’re going to continue campaigning hard.”

Miner put the focus on Romney’s third-place finish, saying he has been running for president for years and is still not breaking through.  “It’s more of what happened to Mitt Romney. He’s not going to be crowned president of the United States. He’s going to have to work for it. And after five and a half years he once again got rejected in a key state in the Republican primary process,” Miner said.

Perry created doubts among some conservatives at a debate with his Republican rivals on Thursday that he admitted on Friday was not his best performance.  Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, and Bachmann chose not to compete in the straw poll but since they took part in the debate and spoke earlier to delegates at the convention in Orlando, the Florida Republican Party put their names on the ballot.

Morgan Freeman Says Tea Party Will Do Whatever They Can to “Get This Black Man Outta Here”

Filed under: Cinema, Entertainment, Race — Tags: — Jesusland @ 09:45

Turns out Morgan Freeman is just another Leftist Hollyweird race baiter like the rest of them.  This is the same Morgan Freeman, mind you, who told us that the only way to end racism is to stop talking about race.  So disappointing, but this is what modern Liberalism does to folks.  He says racism is worse in America with Barack Obama as president, and on that we agree.  But it’s not because of the Tea Party, but because of the continuous race baiting like this.  As far as I’m concerned, Leftist race baiting has set race relations in America back 35 years at least.

“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”

ps., I will never again pay for another movie with this guy in it.  He ruined it for me.

UPDATE:  that same racist Tea Party that can’t stand to see a black man in the White House just gave Herman Cain (a black man) a resounding victory in the Florida straw poll.

Peter Parker sacrificed on Altar of Diversity

Knock off: Miles Morales as the amazing Spiderman.

Spiderman makeover reflects “browning” of America, strikes blow against whitey.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There’s a new web-slinger in town.

New Yorkers take their fictional heroes seriously, so it may come as a shock to some that Peter Parker, the Queens native whose destiny was forever altered by a radioactive/genetically altered spider, has been killed off in the “Ultimates” imprint of Marvel Comics. The Ultimate series is different from Marvel’s standard line, in which Peter Parker is still happily toiling away as everybody’s favorite hard-luck hero.

No, in the Ultimates series, Peter Parker gets killed at the hands of his nemesis the Green Goblin. But, being a comic book series, no hero stays dead for long. While Peter Parker may be gone, a new kid is stepping into the tights: Miles Morales.

Miles Morales is a half-black, half-Hispanic super-powered teen who gets into the hero game after being inspired by Parker’s death.

“He’s younger than Peter Parker, he’s coming from a completely different background, a completely different world view,” writer Brian Michael Bendis told the Associated Press. Bendis, who has been writing Ultimate Spider-Man (and many other) comics for Marvel since 2000, is enthusiastic about the change. “I’m now sitting with a pile of legitimately new Spider-Man stories to tell and that is the best news a writer could have.”

No word on whether the change in ethnicity is going to play a role in casting decisions in upcoming Spider-Man movies or Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.

I’m hispanic and this is embarrassing to me.  So I apologize for what these lilly-white Liberals are doing to our beloved comic book characters for the sake of “diversity,” and ostensibly on my behalf, no less.  So embarrassing!

It doesn’t sit well with me that characters that we’ve grown up with our whole lives should be killed off, all for the sake of “diversity.”  These characters, like professional sports teams, are “public” property and not subject to the whims of politically correct writers or greedy team owners.  Or at least they shouldn’t be.  If the Minnesota Vikings move to L.A. just to chase that almighty dollah, for example, I swear on everything that’s holy I’m done with the NFL.  Finished.  Same here: this “Miles Morales” will NEVER be Spiderman.  Got that?

To which you respond, the world is a very different place than the one Peter Parker grew up in, you goddamn racist.  It’s browner now.  Superheroes should therefore reflect this browning of America.

And I totally agree.  Art and entertainment should reflect the culture that consumes it.  But only if it has developed in a way that’s natural and organic.  Not forced on us by these “deciders” with an agenda.  If there’s a market for ethnic superheros, then create them and sell them to us. If you have the pulse of the nation, then we’ll buy in.  If not, it’ll be just another Liberal flop.  So, is there a market for black, latino, and in this case cablanasian superheros?  Is there?  The answer is decidedly NO!  Because we don’t care about their race or their ethnic “experience”, we care about their superhero story, regardless of race.

Ethnic superheros have been around for decades; Mandrake, Blade, Storm, and Spawn, to name just a few.  Aren’t they good enough?  So why murder our beloved Peter Parker just to morph Spiderman into Tiger Woods?

That fact is, ethnic superheros have never really caught on beyond a niche following.  Give me a break, even non-whites don’t give a crap about ethnic superheros.  Certainly we aren’t going to follow someone because of his/her ethnicity.  I’m hispanic, and I’ve always loved Superman.  That’s never going to change.  Supes has the best mythology, bar none.  He’s unique among the pantheon of superheros.  Sure, he’s white, but he’s not even human for crissakes.  It’s about his species (again, story), not his race.

BUT, you respond, that’s only because “whiteness” is so normative and dominant in this culture, and we’ve all been so inculcated in that whiteness from the moment we opened our eyes.  Essentially, our minds have been “colonized” by whitey to view whiteness as “the norm.”  So although I may claim to care only about a hero’s story, it’s really about race; and black, latino, and mulatto superheros don’t really stand a fighting chance out there.  This Whiteness “matrix”, therefore, has to be shattered so that we can free our thinking from its hold and give ethnic superheros an even playing field.  And that way we can restore “self-esteem” to all our brown brothers and sistas!

And with that response you would reveal the ACTUAL reason Peter Parker had to die.  Because no ethnic superhero has ever been able to compete with the greats like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, et al., and because our children grow up loving them above all others, this only perpetuates this white dominance of which you speak.  So you have to hijack one of the Greats and turn him into a ghetto rat the likes of Miles Morales.  That way you will FORCE us to like an ethnic superhero, and thus help “free” our minds and end the tyranny of “whiteness” forever!  Sound about right? lol

And that’s all this is.  A blow by the forces of PC against whitey and “The Man.”  And who a better villain for this new hero of color than say, oh, those greedy, nasty, hateful Republicans and those raaaaaacist Tea Party “terrorists”!  After all, this is about his “experiences”, isn’t it?  lol

Now stay tuned for teh gay Batman.  You do know he’s gay, right?  Why else would he wear those goofy looking tights?  Sign O’ the times!

Scandinavians Grow Uneasy about Their Dhimmitude

When the most tolerant people on the planet start to worry about their growing dhimmitude, you know things are reaching a head.  Geert Wilders is on trial for saying what these people are thinking, but dare not say out loud.  We don’t dare speak our minds because we’re naturally afraid of sounding “racist”, and worse, racists who are wrong.  It’s too sensitive an issue.  So we watch and wait for things to become more clear before we commit.  Or we keep our mouths shut and let others take the heat.  But unfortunately by the time it becomes clear enough to make a decision, we’ll be too far gone down this road.  It’ll be too late.  By then any decision we face making about Muslim immigration will be far, far, more drastic than any we have to make now.  And because the more urgent the situation becomes with time, the more drastic the solution it will eventually require, we will never commit to it.  Our humanity won’t allow it.  We will simply resign ourselves to the inevitable.  Thus we are facing, quite literally, the end of Western civilization as we know it.

Tea Party Up, Hate Crimes down

Lefty race baiters can’t seem to catch a break as facts stubbornly continue to defy their narrative.  First, their racially charged cries of wolf failed to stem the Tea Party tide, and now this– as the Tea Party grows in popularity, incidences of racial hate crimes continue their downward trend.  Ten years after the attacks of 9/11, the Left waits with much angst (and anticipation, it seems) for that “backlash” against Muslims that never seems to arrive.  Two years after the election of America’s first black president which is purportedly driving the seething cauldron of racial animus and hatred that is “white America” to the breaking point– despite the Recession, despite the rise of Tea Party politics and the Republican resurgence– those fabled “hate crimes” on which the Left banks for its political survival are DOWN, not up.  Facts I can assure you the Left will conveniently ignore.  They have a narrative and they’re sticking to it.

FBI: Hate Crimes and Anti-Religious Offenses Declined In 2009

The FBI says the number of reported hate crimes dropped significantly in 2009 from the previous year, to their lowest point in more than 15 years, despite the deepening recession and growing social tensions. Anti-religious crimes also declined, although attacks against Jewish targets continued to far outstrip incidents aimed at Muslims and Islamic sites.

Whether that downward trend — and the proportionally low number of anti-Muslim incidents — continued into 2010 will only come to light in next year’s report. Given the supercharged political atmosphere that marked this election year, and flashpoints like the so-called ground zero mosque controversy and the Koran-burning threats that sparked numerous attacks on Muslims, the numbers could spike.

Overall, the numbers represent a drop of 15 percent in all hate crimes to the lowest number reported since 1994, outstripping the 5.5 percent decline in violent crime in 2009 and the 4.9 percent drop in property crimes.

Attacks against Jews and Jewish sites accounted for more than 70 percent of the 2009 incidents against religious targets, while Muslims were targeted in just over 9 percent of the incidents. Both groups have relatively small communities, a few million in each case, as opposed to the nation’s more than 65 million Roman Catholics, for example. The FBI tallied 51 anti-Catholic incidents in total in 2009, 38 against Protestants, and 10 against atheists and agnostics.

Middle Schooler Told to Remove American Flag from Bike

Want more proof modern Liberalism is a cultural disease?  Here the multiculturalists order a middle schooler, a child, to remove a small American flag from his bike because it might “stir racial tension.”  On Veteran’s Day.

DENAIR – 13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down.

A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property.
[...]
Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week.

To Coin a phrase: “Whiter than a Stewart-Colbert rally.”

Lilly White Liberals

You’ve heard whiter than a Klan rally, whiter than a Presbyterian church service. And now “Whiter than a Stewart-Colbert rally.”

P.S. Seriously, could a convention of the Utah GOP be whiter? I mean, I don’t give a rip — about the color of people at rallies and all that. I consider them people, for better or worse. I don’t consider them skin colors. It’s just that the Left has been nauseating about the tea parties, calling them racist because they have too few black faces. Well, the tea parties look like Nairobi compared with a Stewart-Colbert rally. It was nothing but a sea of Ivory soap. Lily upon lily. Give me a break.

Congressman Col. Allen West: The Race Baiting Failed

Newly-minted Tea Party congressman, Col. Allen West says Democrat race baiting against their fellow Americans in the Tea Party failed to stem the tide.  And that’s true, but they set race relations in this country back by a generation.  Whenever they pop the race card, you know they’re on the ropes.

West says racism allegations against Tea Party by liberals didn’t work

Florida’s first black Republican congressman since Reconstruction credited the Tea Party with standing up against allegations of racism from the left in supporting his successful candidacy.  “So I think that the — the liberal progressives saw the strength of the grass-roots movement that we call the Tea Party which stands for ‘taxed enough already’ and they tried to turn against it,” Rep.-elect Allen West (R-Fla.) said Friday on “Hannity” on Fox News.

“And the number one thing that you always try to do to silence an opponent in the United States of America is to call someone a racist.”  West said that attempts to tarnish the Tea Party did not foil his campaign. “And we see that that did not work whatsoever,” he said.

“Well, I think the most important thing with our race is that we ran on honor, integrity and character,” said West.  Another historic election took place in South Carolina, where Rep.-Elect Tim Scott also became the first black Republican congressman from his state since Reconstruction.

Scott said he grew up in a single-parent household, where he experienced “tough love.” He said the country needs to experience a similar idea. “And I think it’s part of what we need in America today is we need to have an opportunity to experience tough love,” he said. “And that really means to limit the role of the government.”

The two new members will join a Republican majority in the House. West has announced that he will join the Congressional Black Caucus, saying he plans to join the Democratic-dominated bloc to challenge the CBC’s “monolithic voice.”

Democrat Race baiting bears its poisonous fruit

Filed under: Race, Tea Party — Tags: — Jesusland @ 17:13

The Democrat party has set race relations back a good 3 or 4 decades as far as I’m concerned.  Certainly they have erased any gains made by the election of our first black president.  They knew they were bearing false witness when they were playing the race card against the Tea Party, but they did it anyway because racial tensions serve their larger political strategy of dividing the American people along racial lines for their own narrow partisan gains.   Now that vile strategy begins to bear its poisonous fruit.

“Return to Sanity” Rally Features GOP as Hitler, Blacks are a no-show

LULZ.  How very sane.  To Leftists, everyone has AIDS and everybody is Hitler!  Yipppeeee!

Oh, it’s just a few outliers you say?  Too late for that.  We are now defined by the outliers if we learned anything from the media’s treatment of the Tea Party.

And you don’t see any black folks mingling with the insipid, lilly white Liberals either.  Seriously, where are the black folks?  You might almost mistake this for a Klan Rally, or a Presbyterian church, the racists.  Oh wait, there is that one black guy there…  Never mind.  Diversity is strength!

Bill Maher Alarmed Islam taking over the West

Of course, the threat posed to the West by Islamization can only be discussed in a “comedy” setting, complete with comedians, jokes and clapping seals to break the tension and then move onto the next topic lite.  It’s all in good fun!  Lighten up, PC police.  It’s not like this is a real news show we’re expected to take seriously.

In the UK, the most popular name for babies this year was Mohammed.  Am I a racist to feel I’m alarmed by that?  Because I am.

I don’t have to apologize, do I, for not wanting the Western world to be taken over by Islam.

White Lib to Black con: “Christianity is a white man’s religion.”

Via Gateway Pundit, an insipid White Liberal berates a black christian conservative for abandoning his “African religion” in favor of Christianity, a “white man’s religion” (It was actually a Middle Eastern religion until driven out by Islam).  Then he calls Republicans racist.  You see, to the modern Liberal, blacks are “Africans” being held hostage in America.  This, of course, is not considered racist, while recognizing them as fully 100% American is.

These are the kind of people I was forced to rub elbows with growing up a Liberal Democrat.  At the time I was perfectly willing to accept their hostility towards Christianity just to maintain my Liberal street cred.  No longer.  Whatever weaknesses the Left may find in the likes of Beck and Palin, I will never have to apologize to them– or anybody on the Right– for the faith of my forefathers.

AP: Hate Crimes Against Mexicans Not Racist when committed by blacks

Racist hate crimes by blacks against Mexicans are on the rise in New York City, and this AP story practically weeps because these crimes can’t be blamed on white Teabaggers.  Instead it brings to bear all the Lefty nuance it can muster in order to excuse these hate-filled Obama voters by trying to “understand” the “root causes” of these “tensions”, but never actually using the word “race” nor “racism.”  Those terms– race and racism– are reserved for whites, not minorities.  As you know, minorities– our college professors taught us– can’t be racist because of some loophole or other the Marxists created for them.  Whites, on the other hand, are racist merely for existing, and that is not an overstatement on my part.

Attacks against Mexicans inflame tensions in NYC

NEW YORK – When Rodolfo Olmedo was dragged down by a group of men shouting anti-Mexican epithets and bashed over the head with a wooden stick on the street outside his home, he instinctively covered his face to keep from getting disfigured. Blood filled his mouth.

“I wanted to scream, but I couldn’t because of the beating they were giving me,” said the 25-year-old baker. Nearly five months later, he is still taking pain medications for his head injuries.  Recorded by a store’s surveillance camera, the assault was the first of 11 suspected anti-Hispanic bias attacks in a Staten Island neighborhood, re-igniting years-old tensions between blacks and Hispanics in New York City’s most remote borough.

Residents of Port Richmond — where an influx of newcomers from Latin America over the past decade has transformed the community — alternately blame the attacks on the economy, unemployment and the debate over Arizona’s immigration law. And although most of the suspects were described as young black men and investigated for bias crimes, a grand jury has indicted only one of seven people arrested on a hate-crime charge.

But Isaias Lozano, a day laborer, said he knows why he was attacked and robbed in December by “morenos” — the Spanish word he uses to describe his black neighbors.  “They hate us because we’re Mexicans,” he said while sitting at El Centro del Inmigrante, a center for immigrant day workers. “They aren’t robbing just anybody.”

Across the United States, the immigration debate plays out in suspicion of outsiders and sometimes escalates into violence. Port Richmond, tucked in a corner of New York City that most visitors never see, is wrestling with the perennial question of how people from different backgrounds can live together and get along.  Some community leaders here blame the attacks on hoodlums preying on day laborers, who are perceived as easy targets because they often carry cash home from work. Others say the Arizona law is stirring up a climate of intolerance, even these thousands of miles away.

“It’s a cascading effect,” said the Rev. Terry Troia, a board member of El Centro del Inmigrante. “There are negative impulses being put out there both nationally and locally. People on the fringe catch a piece of that, and they are acting on it.”  Some of Port Richmond’s black residents assert that newcomers’ presence touches a nerve. Mike Mason, 47, a teacher who works in New Jersey, said the arrival of Mexican immigrants had changed the texture of the community.

“America has got to do something as far as immigration goes,” he said. “In the morning you can see the streets lined with undocumented workers … That’s always in the back of people’s minds.” Staten Island is a relatively isolated, suburban-like borough of New York City. It is home to nearly 500,000 people, most of whom live in detached homes instead of apartments, need cars to get around and a ferry to get across New York Harbor to Manhattan.

Between 2000 and 2008, the number of Hispanics living on the island grew roughly 40 percent, according to Census bureau statistics analyzed by City University of New York’s Latino Data Project, with much of that growth coming from the Mexican community.  Many of those began to coalesce around the Port Richmond neighborhood, which had long been predominantly black and low-income.  The neighborhood’s main commercial thoroughfare, once marked by empty storefronts, suddenly came alive with Mexican businesses selling pinatas, bars playing Spanish-language heavy metal, and grocers stocking chilies and tomatillos. The neighborhood developed a new nickname: “Little Mexico.”

In recent months, police have deployed additional foot and mounted patrols, a command post and Mexican-born officers to distribute bilingual fliers with safety tips. The FBI joined in creating a task force to look into civil rights abuses in the neighborhood. Residents have aired grievances at numerous town hall meetings.  On a recent summer day, Nicomedes Rocha said she was afraid of being targeted by blacks while walking on the street.  “I have to watch on both sides,” said the 33-year-old dishwasher at a local taqueria, who was on her way to work carrying a shoulder bag. “They think I carry money.”

But some black residents said it was wrong to talk about bias as the main motive for the attacks.  David Johnson, an amateur boxer who has lived in the neighborhood for seven years, blamed the incidents on drug addicts looking to rob people for cash to feed their habits. “They would do that to anybody,” he said. “To jump toward bias issues is out of whack.”

Rodolfo Olmedo was beaten and robbed of his cell phone and wallet on April 5. Four suspects have been arrested and charged; police investigated it as a bias crime, but a grand jury indicted the suspects only on robbery and gang assault charges.

Ain’t multiculturalism just grand!

When minorities commit these hate crimes the media call it “bias”. If they can pin it on the Right, however, it’s called RACISM!!!  lol.  They are so effing with your minds, people.  The AP article practically snaps its spinal cord as it bends over backward to avoid using the term “racism”, gingerly replacing it with the far more sanitized “anti-hispanic bias.” Not once, but several times mind you.  Is “bias” the term they’d use if Teabaggers were the culprits?  lol.   A rhetorical question of course.

And then notice how it blames the “tensions” on the economy and on Arizona’s immigration law.  Yet this incident took place 5 months ago, long before the Arizona law was even in the news!  Again, lol.  Naturally, it’s not the 40% increase in the Mexican population that’s to blame for rising tensions, nooooooooo, of course not.  It’s the racist laws in Arizona!  And again, lol.  The same Arizona laws actually trying to control this kind of unfettered increase in the illegal population that is causing this kind of tension!

Our Leftwing cultural elites claim to speak for “the poor”, yet their Open Borders impact the poor to a far higher degree than it does the middle and upper classes.  That’s true of most of their social policies.  The top-down social engineering of the Left works its cultural destruction of our society from the bottom up.

Jon Steward goes rogue again.  Clearly he must be a racist, as he’s only saying what racist conservatives have been saying for quite some time now.

But notice they pull back from the edge of the precipice with their race card “void during black presidency”.  Implying, of course, that the race card is maxed out BECAUSE OF RACISM.  lol.  They simply can’t help themselves.


Hispanics Represent Harry Reid’s Race baiting

Dr. Manny Alvarez says it’s pretty effed up that an insipid and colorless white Liberal such as Harry Reid (D) gets to decide who and what hispanics/Latinos should support and vote for.  It’s not your place, whitey.  He speaks of the conservative values in the hispanic community, illegal immigration, and white Liberal patronizing.  His basic gist is not all hispanics are the groupthinking uneducated brainwashed conformist, commie symp benefits freeloaders Democrats think they are:
