Greta BLASTS The Conservative Women’s ‘MOB RULE’ Mentality Towards Corey Lewandoski

Who are you siding with on this one — the women who want Trump’s campaign manager fired or those who are defending his actions? Some of the names on this list might shock you. Check it out…

It is stunning — Lewandowski has not had a trial and these women have convicted him.  We have a judicial system in this country not mob rule.

As an aside, I have tried many, many, many criminal cases and I will tell you this: there is reasonable doubt in this one.  This is a very easy defense case.  Don’t believe me? Ask any lawyer.

And now look what these women have done to their own work covering the campaigns!  These women reporters may want to pull themselves off the Presidential campaign coverage since they have obviously shown their bias.   They need to ask themselves – can they be fair in all their Presidential campaign coverage based on this?  (Greta Wire)

Here is the letter released by the women via Dana Loesch on Twitter, but has now been taken down:

Commentary: “University of Missouri and Yale Show What Mob Rule Looks Like in Higher Education”


waving flagCommentary by  Andrew Kloster / / November 09, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://dailysignal.com/2015/11/09/university-of-missouri-and-yale-shows-what-mob-rule-looks-like-in-higher-education/?utm_source=heritagefoundation&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=saturday&mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRous63AZKXonjHpfsX74%2BokW6S2hYkz2EFye%2BLIHETpodcMTcFhMbDYDBceEJhqyQJxPr3NLtQN191pRhLiDA%3D%3D

America’s universities are supposed to be places where students can get an education. The vast majority of students want that. Some, however, do not. They want a “safe space” where their strange ideas about society can be aired without criticism, and where they can unilaterally punish other students for failing to toe the mass line. These student activists want blood.

At Yale University, last week, a number of members of the Black Student Alliance physically surrounded an administrator and berated him for standing up for free speech and are now demanding his resignation. Caught on camera, one can easily see how dangerous the situation was.free speech

In another example, the president of the University of Missouri, Tim Wolfe, has resigned. His resignation comes after more than 30 members of the football team threatened not to play unless he was forced out. Their claim was that, in unspecified ways, Wolfe failed to eradicate “structural racism” on campus.

These situations have much in common, and the story is becoming a familiar one.

mob rule tyrannyFirst, both situations involve student activists disrupting education, allegedly on behalf of education. At Yale, the activists claimed that allowing free discourse and debate and challenging their assumptions threatened the “safe space” they thought Yale was.

At Mizzou, activists claimed that failing to deal with “structural racism” was harming their education. Both groups of students listed not specific harms, but rather vague interests in feeling good at their university.

Second, both situations involve administrators being asked to clamp down on the free expression of other students. At Yale, students were upset that Yale administrators were not clamping down on Halloween costumes. At Mizzou, students wanted more unspecified action against perceived racism on campus.

Third, both situations involve menacing groups of students that come very close to physical violence. At Yale, for example, students physically encircled the administrator, shouted him down, and got very close to him in a threatening manner. At Mizzou, students physically surrounded the car of Wolfe and demanded he exit the vehicle into the mob.

This pattern is becoming more prevalent on American campuses. In the name of education, education is being disrupted by intolerant student activists, harming the experience for everyone else. At my alma mater, New York University Law School, a small cadre of students is complaining about Halloween decorations that included a man hanging from a noose, because such a decoration was “harmful suicide imagery.”

These students, complaining about harmless decorations at an optional fall party, are attempting to assert disruptive political control over all aspects of educational life. If one accepted all of the claims and agreed with the political aims of the student activists, one might think it advisable to close such unrepentantly bigoted universities down.

A more moderate response by university officials, however, would be to take their job as educators seriously. If a student seeks to disrupt the safety or education of another student, punish the disruptor. If that were to happen, colleges would once again become “safe spaces” for free thought and expression.

This piece has been updated to state that Jonathan L. Butler’s hunger strike was for 7 days.

Missouri’s Lesson: the Campus Wars Are about Power, Not Justice

The battle to erase history moves to New Orleans


waving flagPosted at 8:31 am on August 15, 2015 by Jazz Shaw

Did you really think they were going to stop with the Confederate Battle Flag?

Forget flags, kids. Now we’re going to tear down statues. And we’re not talking about statues which popped up during the civil rights movement in the sixties here… these are more than a century old. There are four statues at the St. Charles Avenue circle in New Orleans which are now going to be torn down if activists have their way. (I was stationed there in the early 70s and have been by the circle many times. It’s a beautiful display.) But Bobby Jindal is trying to figure out if there’s a way to stop it.

As a committee of city government called Thursday for taking down four controversial statues that celebrate Confederate officials and a white supremacist group’s violent fight against a biracial state government during Reconstruction, Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office said it is looking into whether he can use the power of his office to keep the monuments in place.

The monuments, including the statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee atop the column at a St. Charles Avenue traffic circle, should be taken down under an ordinance that allows the City Council to remove public statues that celebrate racist ideologies or are likely to be sites of violent protest, the Historic District Landmarks Commission decided after about an hour of sometimes heated testimony.

The HDLC’s recommendation, approved by an 11-1 vote, now heads to the City Council. Later Thursday, the Human Relations Commission held a similar hearing on the fate of the monuments and was expected to issue its own recommendation.Delusional Mental Illness Gibberish

New Orleans apparently has a law on the books which allows the Historic District Landmarks Commission to ban landmarks and displays which, cause of deathcelebrate racist ideologies or are likely to be sites of violent protest.” That’s a pretty convenient way to design a law if you happen to be in the Social Justice business because all you need to do is stage one or two violent protests and pretty much anything you choose can meet the criteria. The removal of the monuments is expected to cost more than a million dollars. Can Jindal step in and stop the process? That seems to be a big question mark since it’s a matter of local jurisdiction. Don’t be terribly surprised if the activists are successful and hand the bill for the deconstruction to the taxpayers, though.Social Justice

Social Justice Definition

CNN was interviewing some folks on both sides of the question this morning and found several who were also calling for the removal of the fleur de lis from flags and public displays as well. This was has been knocking around ever since the Confederate Battle Flag question was raised and the Daily Caller covered it over a month ago.

“As an African I find it painful, and I think people whose ancestors were enslaved here may feel it even harder than I do as an African,” said slave historian Dr. Ibrahima Seck to WWLTV.

He connects the usage of the fleur de lis, to “code noir,” or black code, which was adopted in Louisiana in 1724, and used to govern to state’s slave population.Mob Rule

So now the fleur is racist? (Apparently everything from the 1860s and before is racist, so… yes.) That’s going to be an interesting battle for the SJW to take up, since the fleur was specific to the previously French held territories and had nothing to do with the civil war in any measurable fashion. It also shows up all over the state and would have to be removed from the helmets of the New Orleans Saints, among many, many other places.

People seeking attention and having too much time on their hands can get up to all manner of mischief and that seems to be the case here. But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to work. It’s the Social Justice Warriors’ world now and you’re just living in it.

The police ‘instant replay’


waving flagHoppy's Commentary Hoppy’s Commentary | June 11, 2015

URL Of the Original Posting Site: http://wvmetronews.com/2015/06/11/the-police-instant-replayCall-911

Instant replay has become invaluable in sports. It greatly improves the ability of game officials to get the call right. The inconvenience of the delay is offset by the advantages of applying the rules accurately and fairly. Instant replay also benefits from a controlled environment of perfect camera angles, definitive rules and expert reviewers.

The latest application of instant replay and, as a result, instant analysis, is police work. The country watched the phone-shot video multiple times of the police responding to teenagers fighting at a pool party in McKinney, Texas. Attention focused on Officer Eric Casebolt, who shoved a 14-year-old girl to the ground and pulled his gun. Police Chief Greg Conley said Casebolt’s actions were “indefensible” and that the officer had resigned.

We’ll agree with the chief on this and defer to his judgment. However it’s worth noting what did not happen at the chaotic scene; the officer didn’t shoot anyone or even fire his weapon and no one was injured. There are suggestions of racism—the officer is white and the teenage victim is black—but there is conflicting evidence as to what role, if any, race played in the police actions.

But the larger question is this: Why is this a national story worthy of several days of headline coverage? There are a couple of reasons:

  • First, there is compelling video. The fact that people are watching drives the agenda in a competitive environment.
  • Second, it fits the current storyline that “the police” are out of control.
  • Third, the race card can be played easily.Picture2

We have a real-life instant replay where news consumers are likely to make their own judgments about the decisions made by the police and others seen in the video.

WVLY’s Howard Monroe told me on “Talkline” Wednesday he believes this is a good thing because it exposed the actions of an overzealous officer and serves as a warning to other police of what not to do.  But Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt offered on the same program that subjecting more behavior to such intense national scrutiny will have unintended consequences. “Here’s your dystopian fantasy for the future; it’s all on camera. Everything is recorded and you better do everything perfectly because if you do it wrong, you won’t get a chance to even things out.” And that, Stirewalt suggests, will lead to “cultural paralysis” nobody will do anything. That may be hyperbolic, but there is already evidence the intense scrutiny of police actions is leading to police inaction.Picture4

CNN interviewed two Baltimore police who spoke anonymously about police simply reacting to events instead of being pro-active because they’re afraid of making a mistake. “Even if you have a reasonable suspicion, nine out of 10 times that officer is going to keep on driving,” one officer said.

Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow Heather MacDonald wrote in the Wall Street Journal recently about the “Ferguson effect.” Violent crime is rising rapidly in major cities across the country as police disengage and the criminal element feels more empowered.

In sports, the instant replay resets the game back within the parameter of the rules. In police work the instant play can also be beneficial when it provides an accurate account of a serious event. However, if the McKinney, Texas, video is an example of where news coverage of the police is headed, where every action caught on video is subject to nationwide scrutiny, then the law enforcement game is going to change completely.Civil Race Both freedom combo 2
