Americans estimate that blacks make up one third of the population, even though they actually represent a relatively stable 13 percent. They also overestimate the proportion of Hispanics by almost double, estimating they make up 3 in 10 of the total population.
Hallelujah! With the population composed almost exclusively of blacks (33%), Hispanics (30%), and gay people (25%), there almost aren’t any straight white men left to oppress these groups!
According to a woman from ISIS: Saby (taking slaves through war) is a great prophetic Sunnah containing many divine wisdoms and religious benefits, regardless of whether or not the people are aware of this. The Sīrah is a witness to our Prophet’s (sallallāhu ‘alayhi...
Consider these facts as reported by, say, WaPo:
A Cleveland police officer was acquitted today for his role in the 2012 fatal shooting of two unarmed people in a car after officers mistook the sound of the car backfiring as gunshots.
When Russell’s Chevy Malibu finally came to a stop in East Cleveland, 13 officers opened fire, shooting at least 137 rounds into the vehicle. Brelo, prosecutors said, was the only one who continued to shoot after the threat was over. He climbed onto the hood of the Malibu and shot 15 rounds into the windshield, striking Russell, who was driving, and Williams, who was in the passenger seat.
Guy innocently drives past police station, his car backfires, 13 officers fire 137 shots into the vehicle, and one jumps onto the hood and shoots 15 times into the windshield for no apparent reason at all.
I had to go to Wikipedia – Wikipedia! – to find the truth the LLM is hiding:
After 22 miles of fleeing, their vehicle was blocked in the rear of a school. Russell then rammed a patrol car and drove towards an officer on foot.
But don’t expect to find out about that if you only read the Lying Liberal Media…
And there’s the inevitable toxicology report, a la Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown:
Toxicology reports released Friday show Russell, 43, of Maple Heights, was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol while evading police in his 1979 Chevrolet Malibu. Russell’s blood alcohol content was .131 at the time of the test, well above the legal limit of .08.
His passenger, Williams, 30, of Garfield Heights, was under the influence of cocaine and had marijuana in her system.
Don’t expect to read that in the Lying Liberal Media either.
Both the suspects had previous convictions, were high on cocaine and alcohol, and had been pulled over for a turn-signal violation when they fled. They endangered public safety by driving intoxicated at 100 mph for 22 miles, into a school, into a cop car, and then at an officer on foot.
The officers who stopped them saved lives. The cops in this case are heroes.
And the scumbags are, well, scumbags. But, to the Lying Liberal Media, they’re martyrs. Hence the Lying.
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.
“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.
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?”
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.
