The Baltimore Riots Were RACIST!

May 15, 2015

Targeting Asian-owned businesses:

These recent immigrants came to the United States largely after the Civil War and the Jim Crow system of segregation and thus have no connection to the charges of continued institutional racism that some blame for the disturbances. Yet the New York Times reported April 27 that gang members in Baltimore had specifically “stood in front of stores that they knew were black-owned businesses to protect them from looting and vandalism,” pointing the rioters instead “toward Chinese- and Arab-owned stores.”

The Korea Times reported April 30, quoting the Korean-American Grocers Association International and the Korean Society of Maryland, that at least 40 Korean-owned businesses in Baltimore were damaged in the riots. One Korean-American-owned business, Fireside North lounge and liquor store, was set on fire, with its owner and the owner of another business, Uptown Liquor, reportedly sustaining injuries. The Associated Press stated that a total of 200 small businesses, many owned by Asian-Americans, were shut down as a result of damage caused by rioters.

WBAL added that masked intruders not only looted Freddie’s Liquor but beat up store owner Young Park. John Bang, the owner of Hopkins Beauty Supply, said he applied lessons he learned from the L.A. riots: He barricaded himself “with an arsenal of weapons.” He told WBAL, “I have registered firearms, a shotgun, AR-15, pistols.” Bang said that if rock-carrying looters tried to enter his business, “I would say ‘I’m armed! Don’t come in!’ And if they don’t believe me and became more aggressive, I would give them a warning shot.”
CNN carried a report on May 7 of a young Korean-American man viewing with shock a video of an older Korean woman sobbing in the ruins of her 30-year-old wig and beauty shop on Pratt Street that had been destroyed by looters. Her son, Matthew Chung, wrote on Facebook, “My parents came to this country with no money and worked hard to set up a little business that’s been in the same neighborhood in Baltimore City for over 25 years. But just in one night everything they have worked for is now all gone.”

Unfortunately for them, these Asian business owners don’t look like Obama’s son.

Just How Many People are Gay Anyway?

May 12, 2015

“Estimates” of homosexuality have ranged from 2 to 10 percent of the general population. 3.5 percent is a good estimate.

The woefully-uninformed American electorate, under an onslaught of propaganda from the Lying Liberal Media, believes 25 percent of the population is gay.

But now we have some data from a very unlikely sample: Members of the British Parliament!

The data we do have comes from Professor Andrew Reynolds, the director of the University of North Carolina’s LGBT Representation and Rights Research Initiative, and so far, he tells me, 29 of the United Kingdom’s 650 MPs are openly lesbian, gay, or bisexual—about 4.5 percent of the House. (Of these, 12 are Conservative, 13 Labour, and four represent the Scottish National Party.) That number includes those politicians who were already out and a few who have contacted Reynolds and asked to be added to the list. As Reynolds told me over email, “It’s not our job to out people—merely to report who they say they are.”

29 out of 650 MPs are openly LGBT! That’s 4.4 percent. If you could add the closet cases, the number might easily jump a few percentage points, far above estimates from the US population.

So, poll!

Why are so many British MPs gay?

For $7.5 million. I hope they get hit with hundreds of millions of dollars of lawsuits, for trying to destroy innocent lives.

I’m no fan of David Cameron. But Labor’s Ed Milliband as Prime Minister? No wonder the Brits voted Torie.

Here’s an interview with Milliband from a few years ago. Do you suppose “these strikes are wrong?”

Poll: Are Baltimore Schools Underfunded?

May 3, 2015

The city of Baltimore ranks second in the amount spent per pupil on education. Each year, the city spends $15,483 per student, second only to New York’s $19,770 (!).

Which brings us to the inevitable poll:

Seven Big Failed Environmentalist Predictions

April 29, 2015

From global cooling to global warming. It’s obvious how they keep making these predictions:

No wonder all of these environmental hysterias seem to begin with the phrase, “if current trends continue.” But current trends don’t continue. Global temperatures go down, then up, then stay flat. Population growth tapers off, while agricultural yields increase at even higher rates. We don’t just sit around using up our currently available oil reserves; we go out and find new reserves of oil and new ways to extract it.

And that’s the real issue. The environmental doomsayers don’t just extrapolate blindly from current trends. They extrapolate only from the trends that fit their apocalyptic vision while ignoring trends that don’t fit. They project forward the current rate at which we’re using up our resources, but ignore the history of our ability to innovate and create. They get all excited by 20 years of rising temperature or rising oil prices—but ignore two centuries of rising wealth and longevity.

It’s almost as if they started with a preconceived conclusion and cast about for evidence to support it.

Today’s Must-read

April 25, 2015

The 56-page lawsuit against Columbia University for actively helping that rape chick with the mattress ruin that innocent guy’s life.

The chick is crazy, the guy is confused, and the art teacher behind the mattress project is… well, read this and decide for yourself:

“The impulse was there for her to carry the bed around, and she didn’t necessarily have the information as to how that would fit into the context or the history of performance art. So this summer we got involved in phone conversations about the nature of endurance art, talking about pieces by Tehching Hsieh and Marina and Ulay and Chris Burden.

But what struck me from the get-go . . . is that, more than any of those people, Emma’s work comes from something which is so much more personal and so much deeper and so much less of a programmatic idea about what to do, but really about working something out cathartically and also making an enormous statement for change and that’s what makes it so powerful.”

When I hear someone use the phrase “from the get-go”, I instantly deduct 15 IQ points. When I hear someone put together a 57+ word “sentence” connected with “and” and “and also”, I worry that they’re retarded.

Stupid Predictions From The First Earth Day

April 23, 2015

The Malthusians were wrong a century ago, they were wrong at the first Earth Day, and they are wrong now. Some of their stupidity at the first Earth Day:

4. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

8. Peter Gunter, a North Texas State University professor, wrote in 1970, “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”

10. Ecologist Kenneth Watt told Time that, “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”


Why MSNBC Hosts Don’t Pay Their Taxes

April 23, 2015

By now, you’ve probably heard that MSNBC hosts don’t pay their taxes. But no one’s come up with an explanation for why that is.

Well, I have one: Like everything else about America, the tax code is racist!

We Suggest, They Comply

April 17, 2015

PoliPundit, a year ago:

There’s a much quicker, painless, certain way to carry out executions.

The state of Oklahoma, today:

Death by nitrogen gas became an alternative method of execution in Oklahoma under a bill Gov. Mary Fallin signed Friday afternoon.

Lethal injection will remain the primary method for carrying out the death penalty in the state.

But should that be ruled unconstitutional or otherwise become unavailable, the state could gas the inmate with nitrogen through a mask or place the condemned person in a nitrogen-filled tent.

The gas would displace oxygen and kill the convict.
