Charles Sherrod- another race baiter

You have 26mins to view this? It’s pretty enlightening. And this reverenced by Mark Levin today,  is a must read at Riehl World View.

He’s a reverend. Did you know that?

These black activits are bound and determined that we return to the days when black men are beaten and hanged by “the white man.” There can be no other reason for this continued dialogue about racism and KKK atrocities. There is little discussion on how far black Americans have come, like for instance to the oval office, from these men of power. There seems to be little celebration for the philanthropy of black women like Oprah Winfrey.

No. They are spending their time drudging up an admittedly horrific past while the future is passing them by. Men like Sharpton and Sherrod don’t even realize they have become relics. While the rest of America tries to move into the future and leave this history behind, they continue to force this into our faces. How many times do white Americans need to acknowledge that yes, there is a horrible history and it’s shameful to this nation what happened to blacks in America.

But when does the day finally come for these black ministers and activists to set this behind and join the rest of  us? That day will never come. Because if that day comes, they will no longer have a cause. As Bill Ayers lamented when the Viet Nam war ended, what will happen now? We no longer have a issue to rail against.

The answer is that they will never let racism go because it will mean their ideological death.

99 days left; the hour is getting late.

We are out of the triple digits now and election day is coming up soon. Although I don’t view myself or those who believe like I do, as thieves, I do think that the thief in this poem speaks sensibly to us at this time in our history. In fact, he shows that there is ‘honor among thieves’ when he admonishes his partner to not speak falsely.

While many of us feel that our country and all hope is lost, I want to offer up a  little poetic inspiration from a very unusual source:

“There must be some way out of here” said the joker to the thief
“There’s too much confusion”, I can’t get no relief

“No reason to get excited”, the thief he kindly spoke
“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late“.

The authentic non-elitists and JournoList ‘journalists’

After reading these JournoList emails, no reporter can ever say, with any credibility, that Obama has been the victim of bad press. They’ve done everything they could do to assure that he looks good all the time. And if we ever thought these so-called reporters and pundits, were sensitive to us, the average American, this should knock some sense into us:

Adam Serwer on Palin and stupid Americans: But she’s so AUTHENTIC! Authentic non-elitist Americans don’t worry about this stuff, they worry about how to teach their kids how to shoot m-16s and use withdrawal as birth control.

 Kathleen Geier, also on Palin and stupid Americans: I’m unsure. Her ignorance is alarming, and I’d like to think it would make voters worry about whether she’s really up to the job.

On the other hand, the GOP obviously takes great pride in being the stupid party. And hey — it’s worked!

As Dan Gainor says today in his column, we are not of the same world as the “reporters” of JournoList. We are the unwashed, the clingers of God and guns, the stupid who believe in ‘myths’ like the Bible and Christian values, who are simply too weird, too backward for those elitists to understand.
It’s an old story, but the explanations are the same. “We are not of your world,” journalists whine as they miss the news of the day. The elusive concerns of God, country, Constitution and family are too unusual, too much like fairy tales for modern journalists to acknowledge.
This morning the Patriot Post, highlighting James De Long of the American Enterprise Institue,   said that any employer of these “reporters” should not only be offended and outraged at the attempts to use their publications to promote their progressive agenda, but should fire the whole lot of them.
The real problem with JournoList is that much of it consisted of exchanges among people who worked for institutions about how to best hijack their employers for the cause of Progressivism. Thus, the J-List discussion revealed yesterday in the Daily Caller was about how the group could get their media organizations to play down the Reverend Wright affair and help elect Barack Obama.

Were I an editor of one of these institutions, I would instantly fire any employee who participated in this gross violation of his/her duty. For example, the J-List included Washington Post reporters, and the idea that the paper has been turned into a propaganda organ is a big reason it is bleeding readers and influence.

But of course, this is all provided that the publications these “reporters” work for want to appear unbiased and fair in their reporting. The jury’s still out on that.
