On 31 August 1986 the most reported news story was the crash of Aeromexico Flight 498 in Cerritos, California. The crash killed 67 on two aircraft and 15 on the ground. The crash took place between a single engine Piper aircraft and a McDonnell-Douglass DC-9. When this was happening at 11h 52m PDT in Cerritos, 19 miles to the south in Huntington Beach, California the Ocean Pacific Pro Surfing Championships were taking place. It was a big event in Orange County which even now is still Reagan country. Despite the conservative nature of Orange County, and the peaceful nature of the competition over the past 26 years, a riot took place.

Now you may ask what prompted this riot? Was it blacks gatecrashing the event causing a riot making it a racial event? No. Was it a union labor dispute between the event coordinator and lifeguards? No. Was it that surfers felt they were being oppressed by park police officers and Huntington Beach law enforcement. No.

Big-Tits-0047

What caused the riot, where more than 90% of the crowd was white, was just what you see above. A woman with really big breasts. That’s right, a woman in a bikini contest had her top pulled off by drunken white trash and when police rushed to her aid the mob started pelting the cops with beer bottles and anything else they could find. By the time police thought they had restored order others had set police cars on fire and started burning the lifeguard station. The Los Angeles Times reported the story on 1 September 1986 thusly:

Hundreds of youths went on a rampage in Huntington Beach on Sunday afternoon, pelting police officers with rocks and bottles, storming a large lifeguard station and overturning and burning police vehicles.

Police said at least 12 people were injured, including five Huntington Beach officers and one Orange County sheriff’s deputy. Thirteen people were arrested but scores of youths who threw bottles at officers or took part in the destruction escaped in the confusion.

The disturbance broke out about 2 p.m. behind bleachers being used for the final day of the Ocean Pacific Pro Surfing Championships, which drew a crowd estimated at 100,000 people.

Witnesses said the melee had no direct connection to the surfing contest but instead was triggered by two or more men behind the bleachers immediately south of the Huntington Beach Pier who were trying to take off the bathing suits of two young women.

The disturbance broke out about 2 p.m. behind bleachers being used for the final day of the Ocean Pacific Pro Surfing Championships, which drew a crowd estimated at 100,000 people.

Witnesses said the melee had no direct connection to the surfing contest but instead was triggered by two or more men behind the bleachers immediately south of the Huntington Beach Pier who were trying to take off the bathing suits of two young women.

As night fell in Huntington Beach, helmeted officers from several jurisdictions continued to patrol the Pacific Coast Highway and nearby streets, clearing bystanders from the area. The city’s famous pier, which normally is jammed on Labor Day weekend evenings, was eerily deserted, with police cars sealing off the entrance. Pedestrians were allowed to walk in the Main Street area, but police quickly broke up any groups that formed. Parts of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway were littered with trash and broken glass that stemmed from the riot. As the trouble began Sunday afternoon, “I heard someone behind the bleachers yelling, ‘Take it off, take it off,’ ” said Mark Bauserman, 22, a student at Golden West College in Huntington Beach. Bauserman, who was taking photos at the event, said police came to the bleacher area to try to help the two young women.

“It started off with only about 50 people surrounding the police,” said Bauserman. “But more and more came, I don’t know how many, but it seemed that everybody on the beach stopped watching the surfing contest and came to watch what was going on with the police.”

Retreating under a barrage of rocks and bottles, officers took refuge in the two-story Vincent G. Moorhouse Lifeguard Headquarters, an administration and maintenance building about a half mile down the beach. Thousands of persons, many of them continuing to throw bottles at the police, followed.

The huge crowd surrounded the building and began jeering at the police and lifeguards inside, according to witnesses and officers. Some of the rioters then broke apart an aluminum fence railing and used parts of it to shatter windows in five police vehicles parked outside the lifeguard headquarters.

After breaking windows and headlights of the police cars, the rioters turned the vehicles over and set them on fire. An eyewitness said that some rioters found safety flares in the police cars and used those to start the fires.

As the cars were burning, the mob then began trying to enter the lifeguard building, police and witnesses said. The officers and lifeguards inside decided to evacuate, taking several injured people with them.

But the chief of lifeguards, Marine Safety Lt. Bill Richardson, 42, decided to remain in the building. “I was worried what would happen to the money and equipment inside,” he later told a reporter. “There was too much in this building just to give it up to them.”

Building Looted

The rioters outside the lifeguard building broke windows and gained entry to the downstairs garage and storage area. They carried off a number of bicycles, life-saving equipment and even private clothes of the lifeguards, police said.

Richardson, who was upstairs alone on the second floor of the building, armed himself with a 9-mm handgun and started walking down the stairs to face the looters. He said he fired one warning shot into the garage ceiling. “They (the looters) took off like it was the 100-yard dash,” Richardson said.

Okay this was nearly thirty years ago. Of course things have changed, right? Not so fast as my good friend Lee Corso would say. In 2013 the 54th edition of the U.S. Open of Surfing was held in Huntington Beach, California. Here is a press report from Los Angeles Times from 30 July 2013:

One of the suspects arrested in connection with looting and rioting in Huntington Beach has been identified as a Fullerton firefighter. Anaheim resident Michael John Lytle, 30, was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in connection with the disturbance that broke out after the eight-day U.S. Open of Surfing ended Sunday. Gretchen Beatty, director of human resources for the city of Fullerton, confirmed that Lytle is a firefighter and has been placed on paid leave while “there is an investigation on the personnel side.” Beatty said the city of Huntington Beach will conduct the criminal investigation. She said Lytle was hired as a firefighter in February 2008, which was first reported by the Orange County Register.

Six other people were also arrested, including Huntington Beach resident Andres Gomez, 24, who was booked on suspicion of refusing to disperse and resisting arrest. Michael Anthony Avila, 28, of Santa Ana; Joseph Monterrosa, 28, of Ontario; Adam A. Cecot, 18, of Irvine; Chase Scott Christman, 19, of Simi Valley; and Kyle Roger Crott, 18, of Riverside were also booked on charges related to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Huntington Beach Police said there could be further arrests.

Authorities are still trying to identify a man videotaped smashing a store window with a stop sign and cheering.

Many people had misidentified that suspect on social media. Huntington Beach police said detectives had spoken to Illario Niko Johnson, 18, and although charges “are expected” against the West Covina resident in connection with the disturbance, his alleged actions were “not related to the window smash.”

“He is not the suspect in the photograph,” police said in a statement.

Sunday evening, unruly beachgoers tipped over portable restrooms, sending waste flowing onto the road. They also rocked a city of Huntington Beach pickup truck, and threw traffic cones and wooden planks pulled from barricades at the truck’s windows after failing to flip it.

Huntington Beach police fired pepper balls and nonlethal projectiles to quell the crowd. Several officers sustained minor injuries, and one person was treated and released from a hospital after being hit by a rubber projectile.

Chris Hayes of MSNBC and Gawker journalist Cord Jefferson were prompted by this rampage in 2013 to ask the question, will moderate white condemn this dangerous white culture? Take a look at a brilliant and scathing satire:

Good night, and good luck!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF RIOTING IN THE UNITED STATES

[Journ.]

fredschwartz1

There is a common theme in America that rioting is a result of a group of people responding to an economic, social or criminal injustice that they perceive cannot be resolved by the power structure that is supposed to protect them from these events. I feel that this is most likely the reason and often times, but always it is justified. American history and prehistory is littered with these events. In good conscience, I can’t write about those types of riots without pointing out there have been riots in America that were sparked by that power structure as a response to a perceived threat to their unearned privilege.

Now I know the conservative readers of this blog will find fault in two things I have written and will write here. They will point to the fact that the vast majority of these riots took place in the 18th, and 19th century. Also, conservatives will point to the fact that they don’t believe in the existence of unearned privilege no matter how many times it is pointed out to them. I get it. I’m not trying to do anything here other than to inform about Human Nature. Being in the business of changing minds is a set up for failure because no one’s mind is going to be changed by what I write, but if I can make one person think with better information I’ve done my job. Okay, let’s talk about rioting in America for a bit.

First let’s have a definition of what a riot is:

A public disturbance involving (1) an act or acts of violence by one or more persons part of an assemblage of three or more persons, which act or acts shall constitute a clear and present danger of, or shall result in, damage or injury to the property of any other person or to the person of any other individual or (2) a threat or threats of the commission of an act or acts of violence by one or more persons part of an assemblage of three or more persons having, individually or collectively, the ability of immediate execution of such threat or threats, where the performance of the threatened act or acts of violence would constitute a clear and present danger of, or would result in, damage or injury to the property of any other person or to the person of any other individual.18 U.S.C. § 2102

That’s a pretty clear definition and I think any reasonable person can agree that this constitutes what a riot is. These sorts of events destroy property and cause a clear and present danger to lives. There are riots where no people are killed or injured and then there are riots where there is great loss of life and injury. Property damage is also a major component of rioting and this is generally always the case. I haven’t heard of a riot where at least one shop window wasn’t broken and some desired item stolen; this is commonly referred to as looting. And for clarity looting didn’t start in America. History can point to looting going back as far as 455 CE, but I am sure there has been looting for as long as there has been civilization.

The first recorded riot in what would become the United States took place in Boston, Massachusetts in 1713 and is referred to as the Boston Bread Riots. Food shortages were the driving force for these riots which saw British merchants trying to ship grain needed by hungry colonists abroad for profit. Hunger is a powerful motivator and this was what lead to three riot events between 1710 and 1713.

While those events in Boston were the first event of riot in the English speaking New World it was far from the last. In the next fifty years riots would take place in virtually every colony from New England to Florida. The most famous of these Colonial America riots is pointed to by the far Right today as their political call to arms– The Boston Tea Party in 1773. There was an economic driving force behind this riot which made the colonists feel oppressed. That draconian taxation thing now is now expressed in white people in their 50s 60s and 70s protesting in Washington DC wearing tricorner hats with tea bags dangling from them. They feel oppressed by the current government thus The TEA Party–taxed enough already. So the current wedge in the GOP is hearkening back to a riot that took place in the late 18th Century. And those people are fine with that riot, they celebrate it as an expression of taking their freedom and liberty back from an oppressive power structure. What they were doing in 1773 was fighting physically against the unearned privilege of the British Crown.

The first major riot in the virtually newborn United States was the Whiskey Rebellion. Taxation [ man people don’t like taxes at all do they?– D.V.] of whiskey and other spirits was the cause of this riot which took place in 1791. In a nutshell, this long smoldering series of insurrections ended when President Washington, riding in front of 13,000 militiamen dispersed a crowd of whiskey tax protesters who had attacked the home of a tax inspector named General John Neville. Seven years later the tax was repealed.

Curiously, the city of Cincinnati, Ohio is the early years of America had far more than its fair share of riots. Since 1792, Cincinnati has been the center of no fewer than eleven riots. John Bartle’s beating which resulted in a day of riots and fighting in 1792 might be seen as an early response to police brutality. The Cincinnati riots of 1829 were about the unearned privilege of the majority in the city. By that year slightly more than 10% of the population was made up of free blacks and fugitive slaves. The local white population of Irish immigrants, fearing their job opportunities would be diminished by the large available black labor pool set upon the black sections of the city forcing more than 1,000 of them to flee to Canada where they formed the Wilberforce Colony in the province of Ontario. So fear of immigration leading to whites having fewer jobs, and thereby less money, was the motivation for this riot.

Seven years later, in 1836 there was another riot in Cincinnati. This riot too was about anti-black movement into the region and competition for jobs. But an added element was the abolitionist in the city who had been kicked out of the Lane Theological Seminary for their views, were also attacked. This event was an inspiration for Harriet Beecher Stowe, a Cincinnati native to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin which was published in 1852.

And yes, five years later, it happened again. The Cincinnati riots of 1841 saw a band of armed white men march into a section of the city called “Little Africa” near the Ohio riverfront where many blacks lived, some, allegedly, with white wives or lovers. This riot was different, however, because the blacks were well armed and had somehow procured a cannon, which they used to positive effect. Of course, the white power structure in the city couldn’t live with a victorious black defense of their persons and property so the National Guard was called out to arrest the black defenders so that their homes could be burnt to the ground by the rioters.

With the immigration of Europeans to America on the rise by the 1850s, Cincinnati’s rioting took a different turn by 1853. Five hundred male and one hundred female German citizens of the city, angered by a visit by a Papal delegation lead by Cardinal Gaetano Bedini, marched on the home of John Baptist Purcell, the Archbishop of Cincinnati. The Germans were protesting the papal visit and were met by police and shots were fired leaving one man dead. This riot took place on Christmas Night.

Immigration and politics were the cause of the Cincinnati Riots of 1855. The Know Nothing candidate for mayor of the city J.D. Taylor, was supported by a group of English speaking white citizens who assaulted German American immigrants. Yes the same people who were rioting over the Papal delegation visit less than two years earlier were now being beset upon by the people who stood by and watched the cops try to control the riot.

The point I’m making here is that the more things change the more they stay the same. Rioting always has some root cause that is generally some perception by a group that they are being threatened or oppressed. The next post, later today will deal with a riot in a major California city and how it has been misrepresented by the media.

WHY DO PEOPLE RIOT?

Posted in AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT, WHITE PRIVILEGE on 18/12/2014 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

Those were the very first words I typed into my computer this morning. Of course, Google working the way Google does I was met with some of the more recent analyses of rioting in the United States that took place in Ferguson, Missouri. Most of these articles are more concerned with the “who” rather than the “why.”

But the second link in this post poses an interesting question regarding the why. Were the riots in Ferguson about the perceived social injustice of a white cop not being indicted, or, were the riots an offshoot of people wanting to be a part of something larger than themselves? These are good questions because they offer a counterpoint to the notion being spread by conservative bloggers that looting and rioting are events in American society caused only by minorities in recent times.

hindsight 2360
In Hindsight
Over the next few hours I am going to examine the reasons people riot and see if there is any common ground between events in recent history in America that can clarify the question asked by the title of this post. As for Ferguson [and I would add Watts, LA in 1992, Newark and other civil rights riots in this group] I believe the root cause of the rioting was opportunism to strike back at a capitalist culture that rewards greed and power held by a monochromatic few. Often times, ironically, people who riot, no matter their color do more damage to people of their own ethnic and racial background than they do to those whom they feel have oppressed them. This fact has been used as a club by conservatives, some with humorous relish over the past seven decades. By the end of this series I hope we will all have learned something about what drives people to act as a mob.

CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY: CONSERVATIVE CITIZENS COUNCIL BLOG BLAMES JESSICA CHAMBERS FOR HER OWN MURDER CALLING HER RELATIONSHIPS WITH BLACK MEN “FEMICIDE”

It has been quite a busy weekend here in the Research Division of The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork. The glacial movement of Congress on the Omnibus Spending bill occupied much of our time but that’s a topic for a later post by my colleague Sarah Bloch. What my group and I have been working on for over a week is the murder of Jessica Chambers eight days ago in Panola County, Mississippi. Chambers was found outside her car and according to media reports she was burned over 98% of her body. The 19 year old woman died in a Memphis hospital of her injuries hours later.

jessica-chambers

This is a horrible tragedy and in that county of less than 40,000 people there is someone who knows both who and why this woman was killed. Now from the cops here in Dis that I have spoken to there can be only four things that happened to cause this woman’s untimely death. First, there was a catastrophic event involving her car that caused it to burst into flames thereby burning her to death. Second, Chambers doused herself with an accelerant and committed suicide. Third, an unknown person or persons, doused the woman with an accelerant and set her on fire killing her. The fourth and most unlikely is spontaneous combustion.

police procedure

My cop friend, from looking at the evidence and working on what she’s heard from the fine people at Serratoth Customs House say that numbers one, two and four have been ruled out, leaving only option three. So, going by the times tested “Who, What, When, Where, Why and How” method of solving murders it is known how, when, where and what. What police in Panola County, Mississippi do not know or are not telling is the who and the why. This doesn’t mean that many among the living in America aren’t speculating on this case.

None of Jessica’s known actions led to her death according to those I’ve spoken to about the murder, but that hasn’t stopped any of the conservative bloggers, especially those with white supremacist leanings from blaming the death of Jessica Chambers on her association with black men. This is an odious attempt at best and for full disclosure I have to take my readers back to the case of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom murders in 2007 which were covered by my colleague Diane Valencen in depth. Also I have to point out the suicide of Panola County, MS Sheriff Hugh “Shot” Bright in 2009 after his affair with teacher Melanie Dalrymple turned sour with was covered by my colleague Robin Naismith Green. In both of these cases the matters of Hellac Law that determine a Soul’s responsibility for their own death were determined as being “very high” as reported in the Entry Documents on the date of their leaving the corporeal world.

Now the Christian/Newsom murders were high profile due to the gruesomeness of the crimes [many of the facts of Channon’s injuries were embellished by conservative bloggers to make the circumstances seem even more savage which was not necessary at all.–F.S.] and they were covered widely in the Knoxville, TN region. The perps, all black all career criminals were caught and sent to what became sensationalized trials. After a judicial recusal and a retrial all were found guilty with only one, Vanessa Coleman, who was not found guilty of first degree murder in the second trial, eligible for parole this month [Coleman was denied parole 3 days ago.–F.S.]. Bright’s murder was simply a local story, gained no national traction at all and came and went with little notice except to our loyal readership.

I compare these two tragedies to make two points. First, your associations contribute to everything that happens to you on a daily basis. However, your associations can often be used as a stick to beat political enemies with when things go wrong for you. This was the case for Channon Christian when Ms Valencen wrote her article about her drug use which sent a firestorm of comments through our site. Arguments in the blog space at a local TV station led to Diane leaving our blog when she posted an article with personal information about a particularly bigoted supporter of the Christian/Newsom families. After a year and a few months as reckoned from Terra working as a spokesperson for a government agency [A fate, far, far worse than Death.–D.V.] Diane returned to the offices here and set out in her new role as editorial page editor that such a thing would never happen again. In her office today there is a black marble plaque with white letters carved into it that reads, “It is our job to report the news; not to MAKE, the news.”

As for the Bright/Dalrymple case it was more of a gossip column thing. There was no racial angle there. A man the community thought was conservative, Christian and upstanding, a pillar of the community, was having an affair with a local teacher. Nothing to see here. His associations were all white, all Christian all “good” so unless you were in line at the local WalMart and heard the gossip about how the mighty had fallen there was no there there for conservative bloggers. Stay with me on this.

Okay, there’s a dichotomy in conservative especially secessionist/white supremacist bloggers that seeks to blame every ill on black Americans. I’m fed up with it but the career path I’ve chose sends me back to reporting on their vitriol at least two or three times a Terran standard year. Just reading the comments at topconservativenews.com that follow the post entitled, “Jessica Chambers and The Black Squad” tells me everything I need to know about white conservatives. For these people there is no common ground. There can be no reconciliation or acknowledgement that diversity is what made America a great nation. Well diversity and shopping, but I digress.

CCC2013

The Council of Conservative Citizens calls the cause of Jessica Chmabers’ death, “femicide.” That is defined by the death of a woman at the hands of her boyfriend, ex boyfriend, husband or ex husband. Okay, I know that you know where I am going and also where the unnamed conservative that wrote this stream of statistics is going as well. Just yesterday, Mahordomo Pain [q c p n!] wrote an article about fear of black men being the driving cause of this new age of bigotry and racism in America. The writings and comments at these two pages are enough to show any rational person that this is the case.

At The CCC blog a commenter Tyler Higgins says:

“I think people everywhere are about ready to go hunting, we’re fed up.”

Another, James Duke responds:

“Saddle up get the guns dogs and a rope.”

A third, chimes in:

“Couple of kneegrows swinging might get these beast attention.”

James Duke then turns his ire toward Jessica Chambers’ father:

“trust this if i was the father this would not have happened . He stood by while his daughter dated an socialized with these animals. Time to deal with this, either the locals or the FBI.”

hindsight 2357
In Hindsight
You get the point. I could go on for days but after reading and shaking my head for so long I want to get to the final point. No race in and of itself is evil, or corrupt or violent; individuals within these groups and their likeminded followers are. I find it curious that while we report on crime in Chicago regularly these conservative sites filled with white supremacist fervor never report on suburban murder suicides like this one which left two children dead. Or maybe this one in Pennsylvania three days ago. Or this on in Sebastian County, AR where a man killed his father in law in a plot to kill his ex wife. Or this one in Chandler County, GA. I could break the internet with the sheer volume of white men killing their ex wives and girlfriend or killing their own children to get back at an ex wife or girlfriend. I could rebuild it and break it again with the massive numbers of drug crimes, sex crimes and assaults that never see the MSM light of day and really aren’t national news. My problem in the end is that fearful people do really stupid things. The CCC is already on the SPLC Hate Watch list and that’s a good thing. These people today are just all talk and hope that a black man is arrested or killed for the murder of Jessica Chambers. If it turns out to be a white kid who had an obsession with Jessica? You won’t hear anything about that.

[And for dessert try this bit of lunacy from a group that calls itself “Traditionalist Youth Network” read in the link the America they want for you.

THE REVOLUTION IS BEING TELEVISED OR, WHY I SUPPORT ANONYMOUS

Posted in AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, JOURNALISM, JUSTICE on 09/12/2014 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fred_schwartz_4

Since August Americans have watched and the MSM has supplied images that run the gamut from brutal violence and stupidity in the form of property damage to compassion in the form of a police officer hugging a child protesting police violence against people of color. I have watched and commented here on the death of Michael Brown and the death of Eric Garner. Both, if you have any human compassion, are vile tragedies. Society in America is changing right before the eyes not just of white conservative Americans of middle class privilege but all Americans. People want safety and for the most part America is one of the safest countries on Terra. What it isn’t is a nation where Justice is dispensed as it should be with a blind eye to class and color.

Protests I-80

Now I understand that peaceful protests do not drive ratings for any news network. Reporters on the ground in the midst of tear gas and burning police vehicles do. Right now I am watching CNN where a man who stabbed a worshipper at a New York City synagogue was taken down by police officers. The video came with a warning that it would be hard to watch; I don;t find it so disturbing in the great scheme of things. America, a nation in transition is consuming far worse on the Internet daily. As time goes on the MSM will have to deliver more and more graphic news to its audiences.

hindsight 2018
In Hindsight

I believe the free flow of information and the tools to bring light into darkness are important whether you are a journalist or a consumer of news. Being better informed is better than being a parrot no matter your political ideology. At the end of the day the work that Anonymous has done in the Ferguson case is far more important than journalists having water poured on their eyes so advertisers will dump more cash on commercials for things you likely don’t need. The revolution is being televised by corporations but the real revolution will be won by the people, marching, for Truth and Justice.

Many of our readers may have never heard of the Progressive Labor Party, an offshoot of the Communist Party of the United States of America founded in 1961, but I have because in the 1980s I was a member. The foundation belief of the party is racial equality and worker’s rights. Both of these things are fundamental to my political beliefs even now in Hell as a card carrying [proudly] member of the Alliance Party of Dis [PND] which is the local branch of the Alliance Party of the Hellac Empire [PNIH]. Taylor, at Jim Hoft’s blog the Gateway Pundit have taken notice of the PLP passing out chant flyers in New York City during the protests of the murder of Eric Garner by a New York police officer.

TeaBaggerFlag

From the tone of the post I can see that Taylor who has posted for years at such conservative bastions as the Free Republic is still fighting the Cold War as many conservatives do. Mr Taylor might be seen as many conservatives as the heir apparent to the mantle of digital media power that was once held by Andrew Breitbart a few short years ago. Now, aligned with Jim Hoft at Gateway, Kristinn Taylor has ramped up his pro-white pro Christian first anti-Peace agenda.

race mixing gay marriage protest

The comments to the post echo the conservative hatred for equality between races, genders and sexual orientations. The seething anger directed at anything that might affect the share of the “good stuff” hoarded by the white conservative base by virtue of unearned privilege is palpable. Included in this list of “good stuff” is the understood right to not be killed by police despite resisting arrest. i point to the case earlier this Terran autumn where a white woman, Sarah Culhane, struck several cars, injured a citizen with her car and resisted arrest after a police chase and was not shot and killed.

While the 19 year old Culhane’s parents might be angry and socially embarrassed by the actions of their daughter, but they do not share the grief and loss of burying their child that at this moment haunts the every thought of the parents and loved ones of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and 12 year old Tamir Rice. No matter how much the Culhane’s have to spend to get their daughter’s life of privilege back, and that number with legal fees and payoffs to people who who injured or had their cars damaged might total into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, it is a price they are surely willing to pay vice having to stand at a graveside never to see the living face of their daughter again.

In Hindsight

Taylor is doing the Devil’s work once again stoking class, political and racial hatred in the fertile soil of the minds of conservatives that read the Gateway Pundit, listen daily to Rush Limbaugh and only get their news from Fox. I can nearly taste the hypocrisy in this because of this conservative base their is an element that gets a check from the federal government every month which they call an entitlement but relies on the hard work of others to assure it is delivered. Taylor and his followers in the conservative parade would be fine having their way and denying a large bloc of the American people their civil rights in the name of “protecting their way of life” or “maintaining law and order” yet they do not see how the saturation of firearms in America is a contributor to one of the leading causes of death for all Americans. I know the history of Hell teaches the lesson of the death of Shai’tan and this is widely unknown to the Living. Shai’tan gloried in how brutal capitalism was to the poor, the black and women. He delighted in how the gears of making money at all cost drove many to commit the one sin from which there is no salvation. Kristinn Taylor has taken up the dead torch of Shai’tan in deciding his race and his religion trumps the necessity of economic, racial and social equality on Terra and it is by his delight in the poverty and double standards by which all conservatives will be judged in Hell.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: THE GOP HONEYMOON AFTER RETAKING THE CONGRESS IS OFFICIALLY OVER; PRESIDENT OBAMA TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT ON IMMIGRATION IN SPEECH TOMORROW NIGHT

Conservative heads are exploding all over the United States after it was announced that President Obama will deliver a speech to the American citizenry tomorrow night regarding his plans to use executive orders to reshape immigration to the United States. The Republicans have been adamant about not discussing immigration much less passing any immigration legislation. From a purely political standpoint this move by the President to grant a certain level of citizenship status to millions of undocumented immigrants is a multigenerational death shot to the future of the GOP.

While conservatives are dying off and not being replaced the Democrats can depend on several generations of Latinos to support the policies that will make their lives better by allowing them to stay and work in the United States.Even though the electoral politics are clear this is still a bold and legacy building move for President Obama. The successes of ObamaCare now fully cemented in the wounded psyches of the middle class; now comes the greatest act of diversity and compassion toward minorities in America since the Civl and Voting Rights Acts were passed in the late 1960s.

Republicans have already begun to howl and a few to threaten to go back to what they did while they only controlled one house of the Legislative branch- they will double down on being the party of “No!” in all areas outside of this immigration debate. There is very little they can do to undo an executive order; the only recourse for the GOP now is suicide from fear of death. GOP fringe elements from the TEA Party will call for Impeachment for certain now making their faction and the party as a whole easy fodder for those who see these pro-White and White-only bigots for what they are.

Twitter is ablaze with threats from Cruz to block presidential appointees and attach riders to bills to strip the president of his power to grant amnesty in this case. Both of those seemingly nuclear options are dead on arrival. Breitbart News Service is already fanning the flames against a president that never has to run for office again. Their headline Big Government story reads, “Baby Boom of Hispanic, Asian, and Black Children to Make Whites a Minority by 2050.” This is something we know already here on the Progressive side of the debate that is bound to happen and with the conservatives impotent due to their religious beliefs on sex and marriage they have sealed themselves in a box filled with gas fumes and are trying to strike a match.

A child born today will never know what the GOP was and certainly will never have a chance to vote for a GOP candidate. Those twentysomethings now who will drive Progressives into power anew in Congress and the majority state legislatures by 2024 will look back at the start of a historical golden age for Progressives that grew out of defeat that just a few days conservatives were dancing in the streets about. Politics is not a simple game nor is a kind game. Today it appears that the GOP will be retiring from the stage in a decade or so and leaving behind those who can only get elected to the House in the least diverse and backward districts in America.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
