Some political stupidity.
It seems this past couple of years has been a banner years for political
newspeak. We are reaching a dangerous time for Democracy and Individual
Freedom There has been an effort of late to rehabilitate the image of
David Dinkins. David Dinkins was an extemist and racist dispite his
veneer of gentility. After the Crown Heights Riots he was quoted in the
NY Times as saying:
''I found that out during the days immediately following Crown Heights,
They said in effect to the Park Avenue Jews, 'You all have abandoned
us.' That wasn't true, but that's what they said.''
This statement, quoted in the NY Times, has so many levels of deep
racism and misconceptions that it is impossible to go through them on
this webpage. But on the top the list is his idea that somehow the Jews
who were attacked and in the violent riots by the Black community who
lived in Crown Heights, Brownsville and East New York, somehow
complained to coreligionists from "Park Avenue", because in Dinkins mind
there is some kind of conspiracy there.
Did he really think that the people who live on Park Avenue could care
less about Jews living in the ghetto of Crown Heights? If they did, we
would have a much better city.
Secondly, what does that have to do with the fact that he created the
race baiting environment that allowed for the riots in the first place,
and then tied the hands of the police force when the riots started. And
then left Bill de Blasio to handle the riots while he went to see the US
Barak Obama -
The "broader point we need to stay focused on," he added, "is what we
have is a disaffected Sunni minority in the case of Iraq, a majority in
the case of Syria, stretching from essentially Baghdad to Damascus. ...
Unless we can give them a formula that speaks to the aspirations of that
population, we are inevitably going to have problems. ...
...This President has been sniffing too much glue...
OK, more to the point, you have to have ignored 5,000 years of human
history to believe any sort of capitulation can resolve the violent
social and political upheaval of political Islam.
Obama again ..
"If people can't trust not only the executive branch but also don't
trust Congress, and don't trust federal judges, to make sure that we're
abiding by the Constitution with due process and rule of law, then we're
going to have some problems here."
...where is Dan Quayle when you need him. It is the very premise of any
sane political constitution and democratic body of law that first and
foremost, you can not trust the government. Therefor government must be
LIMITED and never trusted.
On Michael Bloomberg
"She noted that police made 4.4 million stops between 2004 and 2012, and
frisked over 2 million people. "In 98.5% of the 2.3 million frisks, no
weapon was found," she wrote"
Why does our mayor need to be told that he can not stop and frisk
MILLIONS of people? He is gone now, but his replacement comes with his
own troubles, starting with a fundamental lack of desire to pick up the
trash. I feel like NYC is living on a yoyo, bouncing from one form of
insanity to the next.
So many immigrant groups have swept through our town
