Cops are only Human

7a5fdb7d89fff7973ac550e2bb8c6ce3

It is dangerous to view Police or, as they like to call themselves, Law Enforcement as “humans.” Certainly, they are humans. However, they are much more than that. They are of the State. They are the means through which the State projects power and authority.

They are not merely humans who are good or bad. They have authority and power vested in them by the State which can be used for good or bad.
Their incompetence can adversely affect us. Their negligence can adversely affect us. Their willful malfeasance can adversely affect us. Any action that they take that is not wholly competent, lawful, moral and with good intent can adversely affect us. Any action that they take which they believe is lawful, moral and with good intent can adversely affect us.

These are not mere humans. They are not mere Citizens. They are instruments of the State. Thinking of them as merely fellow humans or even fellow Citizens is a mistake.

Every action a Law Enforcement Officer takes whether it be good or bad has consequences. Many of the actions that LEO take in the performance of their duties will adversely affect Citizens of the various States and of the United States of America. This must always be uppermost in their minds and it should be the same for Citizens who wish to remain free.

Cops are not mere humans. They are Officers of the State vested with authority and the power over Life and Death. They cannot be imbeciles. They cannot be incompetent. They cannot rely on mere muscle memory. They must be disciplined, knowledgeable of the law, morally reliable, competent and they must be held to a higher standard than every other Citizen of the United States of America.

Real Discussions on Race

Planned Parenthood was founded by a rabid racist.

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Margaret Sanger

Che Guevara held racist ideas in his youth and may have carried them forward into la revolucion’. Not a living human knows for sure what was in the heart of Che’. What cannot be denied is that he was an exceptionally brutal, murderous and bloody revolutionary.

Nathan Bedford Forrest was the author the Fort Pillow Massacre. He was also a founding member of the Klu Klux Klan.

Forrest also went on to disavow the KKK. He helped shut the doors of the KKK in his lifetime. He also spoke against the murder of Black Americans by criminals. His words. He called them criminals. He advocated for more humane treatment of the freed slaves and advocated for their admission into law school in Tennessee.

“After only a year as Grand Wizard, in January 1869, faced with an ungovernable membership employing methods that seemed increasingly counterproductive, Forrest issued KKK General Order Number One: “It is therefore ordered and decreed, that the masks and costumes of this Order be entirely abolished and destroyed.” By the end of his life, Forrest’s racial attitudes would evolve — in 1875, he advocated for the admission of blacks into law school — and he lived to fully renounce his involvement with the all-but-vanished Klan.”

Forrest changed. He renounced his racist past. Compared to our age, Forrest more than likely went to his deathbed with what we would consider bigoted attitudes. Yet, he did more for Black Americans than your average Democrat or Republican of our time.

If Forrest and the Confederate Battle Flag should be purged from the American Landscape, so too should Margaret Sanger who agitated for the extermination of the Black Race and Che Guevara who wrote openly of his bigotry and murdered many more and in just as cold blood as Nathan Bedford Forrest.

If we are to “cure” America of racism via the purging of symbols and historical figures in some Maoist Cultural Revolution, we should look to all symbols of racism, hatred and bigotry. Targeting only the Right is not the answer. West Virginia’s Robert Byrd, Lyndon B. Johnson, Woodrow Wilson all were at least as racist as any leader of the Confederate States of America up to a point in their lives and possibly to the end of their lives.

Strom Thurmond was a Democrat turned Republican. He switched parties allegedly over the Civil Rights movement. Democrats make this statement despite the fact that Republicans voted FOR the Civil Rights Act of 1964 on average at an 80% rate while Democrats voted for the the Civil Rights Act of 1964 at a 63% rate.

Strom Thurmond also had a Black daughter which, I’m sure, helped to modify his racial attitudes. He put her through College at an HBC. He also supported her throughout her life.

Racial attitudes are rarely simple…rarely “black and white.” Race is a complex issue. The issues of Race, Racism, Bigotry and Discrimination cannot be brought to resolution simply by ridding ourselves of symbols and statues.

There must be real and open communication. Putting White Teens through guilt trip driven reality TV is no discussion. That will come to no good end.

The discussion must be open. It must be real. It cannot be one sided. There are millions of White folks out there who are not racist. There are millions of Black folks out there who aren’t racist. There are also other races in America who are often left out of the discussion. The discussion cannot be a “People of Color” against White People dialogue either. White Privilege only goes so far when you live in a Trailer Park and are dependent upon the government and educated in one of America’s Branches of Public Wage Slave Propaganda.

What must be realized is that racism will never go away. Bigotry will never go away. As long as there are two humans or two groups of humans, one will vie for supremacy over the other. In old Europe, Race was Class. One’s class determined one’s place in society. The Race that we recognize today is a product of Colonialism and European Oppression, Suppression and Exploitation of the world.

Yes, Slavery was a part of that. However, it was only a component.

If we are ever going to come to a place of understanding, we have to understand that how we understand and react to race is based upon the lies of Colonialism and that these race based ideologies were thrust upon us.

Once we begin to comprehend this, we can move towards a better understanding of who we are as a HUMAN RACE. The Color Line is as artificial as Jim Crow, Apartheid and Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

The Sins of White Guilt Liberals & Corrupt Black Politicians

PLEASE STOP HELPING US: HOW LIBERALS MAKE IT HARDER FOR BLACKS TO SUCCEED
By Jason L. Riley
Encounter, $23.99, 184 pages

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. famously said we are a “nation of cowards” when it comes to discussing race. Jason Riley is not one of them. The Wall Street Journal editorial board member’s new book, “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed,” is a moment of clarity in a tempest of confusion over the impact of social-welfare policy on blacks, particularly in light of recent commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Well meaning White Liberals need to get the fuck out of the way and let Black people solve their own problems.

Corrupt Black Politicians such as Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Eric Holder need to get out of the way and stop hindering Black progress.

All of the idiots paving the way to hell with their good intentions need to shut the fuck up and take their own path to hell.

People will amaze you with their ingenuity and their capability if only well meaning morons would simply get the fuck out of the way.

Random Thoughts on the Destruction of American Liberty

deathofam

The DNC and GOP are evil.

Neither are good for the country.

Both are good for their respective Lobbyists and Special Interests.

Both target key demographics and lie to them to get elected.

Unions represent the interests of their respective organizations. Police Unions represent the interests of Police. They lobby for legislation that will benefit the Police. Laws such as COPS and 1033, qualified immunity, confiscation, etc.

The Wars on Poverty, Crime and Drugs were initiated by Democrats. All of these so-called wars benefit the Police, empower the police and destroy the rights of the Citizens.

The War on Terror was initiated by Republican Bush 2. However, Obama has taken that war and run with it. He’s made it his own. The NDAA, NSA spying, police militarization, assassination, rendition, invasions and occupations…all of these things were started by someone other than Obama, the Democrat. Yet, Obama has taken them and injected elephant steroids into these programs and gone about the business of destroying the Constitution.

Any Political Party that centers on the corruption that are American cities is bound to be corrupt.

Police have, historically, been Democratic run organizations. Not Republican.

Military members joining the police forces enmasse is a recent phenomenon. This is happening recently as a result of the terrible economy and programs put in place by respective Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama DOJs.

Our current volunteer military is only 30 years old. Prior to the “All Volunteer” military, our nations military services were made up of careerists who retired after they left service and draftees who were mostly poor. These draftees left the service and went into all career fields and some into none as most were from the poor or lower middle class.

This preposterous idea that the Police forces in the military are made up of mostly ex-military is patently false. I looked it up and it can’t be proven or disproven because no one (not even the DOJ) keeps statistics.

I have been researching American police forces for some time now because of Obama’s continuation of Bush’s War on Liberty. Police come from predominantly working class familes. They enter the police force between the ages of 21 and 24. That does not give the majority of them time to enter the Military, ETS and then join the police as a goodly majority of Police have at least 2 years of college. This is a prerequisite for some, if not most, Police forces.

Police Brutality, of late, is a direct result of the Bush/Obama war on Liberty and the Constitution.

Both the Military and the Police are tools of the State.

Police forces have been given qualified immunity. This means that they are not accountable to the citizenry and not held to the same law as the rest of the citizenry. They are, in fact, above the law. Bush and Obama have brought this about via legislation, “Wars on…,” and court appointments.

This must change or America will no longer be a free nation but, instead, little better than Maoist China.

The Democrats are no better than the Republicans. They are the same. This is an age old tactic. Divide and conquer.

By choosing D or R, you are defeating yourselves and destroying America.

jeffferson-vs-obama

Michelle Obama was Angry — “Whitey is still holding us down…” or was “he” (Re-visited)

I posted the original article and commentary about Michelle and Whitey almost a year ago.  It’s garnered quite a bit of interest.

image001

Barack Obama is the man of the hour in US and World Politics.  He is the President-elect.  How does Michelle feel about her comments now about bars being set and raised now.  She was wrong then and she is wrong now.  The bar was set high on purpose.  No one should be handed the office of President of the United States of America.  Not Barack Obama.  Not anyone else.  (Not even George W. Bush for all of you who will zone in on Dubya.)  Barack Obama has won the election.  The American people have won this election.

My feeling on this issue is that many American Blacks do not see and experience America as it is today.  Too many experience their lives through the past.  They see America through the prism of America 20 and 30 years ago.  Many Black Americans are living with the racist history and past of America as if it is a friend or a childhood blanket that they can’t quite let go.  Before anyone starts, I realize that racism, discrimination and prejudice exist today.  Yet, it is nowhere near as common as it was 30, 20 even 10 years ago.

Also, those problems exist on all sides of the racial/color divide.  I’ve witnessed Black racism towards Whites, Asians and Hispanics.  I’ve witnessed White racism towards the same.  I’ve witnessed Asian racism towards Blacks, Whites and Hispanics.  I’ve seen these people all practice racism in one form or another against Arabs and others as well.

So what?  It exists. You live your life and work around it.  It will always exists.

There are extreme liberal prejudices against Christians.  There are extreme conservative prejudices against Homosexuals.  Many folks are prejudiced against Muslims due to the dangers posed by Islamic Extremism.

It’s there.  It will always be there.  Tough.

Growing up.  I was discriminated against because I was poor.  When I was 19 and in Germany in the Army, I was jumped by 8 Black guys for the sole reason of the color of my skin. I’ve not spent my life being resentful for this treatment.  I don’t spend my days and nights talking about “the Man” and his desire to “get me” and “hold me down.”  I go out and live and try to improve my lot in life.  In spite of the Challenges and sometimes because of the Challenges that have come my way.

Obama will become the 44th President of the United State of America on January 20th, 2009.  This would not have been possible without the vote of White Americans.  This seems to be a fact that many Black Americans overlook.  The election of Barack Obama is a victory for all Americans.  Not Black Americans or racially mixed Americans.  All Americans.  It plainly illustrates that much of White America has moved past the old racist notions that held us back as a Nation.

My question is this:

HAVE BLACK AMERICANS MOVED PAST RACISM?

Are they willing to do so? Will they?  Or will we still have to hear about “Whitey” or “those damn Crackers” or the “evil White man.” Will White America get credit in the Black Community for looking past color in this election?

This is one of the roles that Michelle Obama must take on as First Lady.  The role of healer of a nation.  Will she aid in healing the racial divide or will she exacerbate the divide?  This nation needs a healer.  I hope she steps up.  We have a chance in this nation to move past pettiness and prejudice.  We have been afforded a unique opportunity.  Let us hope that a leader will step forth and carry us forward to that day about which Doctor King and so many others have  dreamed for so long.  May we free ourselves of these chains which have held us down as a people for so long.  May people put down their hates and prejudices and look instead to the individual heart and character of a person.  This is a possibility.

I so tire of racism.  The conversation itself is wearying.

Let’s move past this America.  Let us finally free our national soul of this disease of the mind and spirit.

Michelle Obama.  Lead us on to the future.
