Racism – how you end up being your own worst enemy

Guess who said this: a white supremicist, or an “anti-racist” correspondent to Michelle Malkin.

Take a walk in Arizona. By yourself. Because you are not white no matter how hard you try to be white, you will never be white . no matter how hard you try to speak like a white person. you will never will be one and your father and your mother and sisters and brothers will never be white no matter how hard you try.

Yes, that intensely disturbing quote comes from someone trying to convince Michelle that there is racism in America.

Seems like some people are so keen to have people believe they, or other people, are discriminated against, they’ve forgotten what that word actually means.

Obama’s Community Organiser Experience

Michelle Malkin makes some good points about what was said by Republicans at the convention about Obama’s community organizer experience.

Point 1: No one is mocking real community organisers, just pointing out that that job is hardly good experience to move into the White House on.

Let me clarify something. Nobody is mocking community organizers in church basements and community centers across the country working to improve their neighbors’ lives. What deserves ridicule is the notion that Barack Obama’s brief stint as a South Side rabble-rouser for tax-subsidized, partisan non-profits qualifies as executive experience you can believe in.

Point 2: What Obama was doing was not a simple “helping the community” role.

What deserves derision is “community organizing” that relies of a community of homeless people and ex-cons to organize for the purpose of registering dead people and shaking down corporations and using the race card as a bludgeon.

As I’ve reported previously, Obama’s community organizing days revolved around training grievance-mongers from the far left group ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). The ACORN mob is infamous for its bully tactics (which they dub “direct actions”); Obama supporters have recounted his role in organizing an ambush of a government planning meeting on a landfill project opposed by Chicago minority lobbies.

With benefactors like Obama in office, ACORN has milked nearly four decades of government subsidies to prop up chapters that promote the welfare state, undermine the free market, and perpetuate illegal immigration and voter fraud. Since I last detailed ACORN’s illicit activities in this column in June (see “The ACORN Obama knows,” June 19, 2008), the group continues to garner scrutiny of law enforcement:

Read the whole thing, then consider whether the illegal and corrupt activity described should be in the newspapers instead of what McCain’s VP nominee’s daughter’s fiance’s My Space page says.

Then think about how many months the MSM have had to get to the bottom of a real story like this, but in 4 days pulled up so much fluff about remotely connected to Palin.

Malkin Threatened

This is very serious. While NRT’s recent claims that the right are responsible for deaths linked recently to an essay which contained little fact and less quotes, all we on the right have to do is point to this video next time the topic comes up.

The tone of the protest changes partway in – don’t be fooled by the funny and lighthearted opening, when the protest doesn’t go anywhere, one idiot starts yelling at Malkin and others call for her death.

I never realised how short she is, which makes her courage in the fact of what are explicit death threats just that bit more impressive. Mind you, this is not actually that unusual for her – she is often the target of the worst sort of racist and misogynistic attacks from those who disagree with her politics.

AP Owes Money

Heh, the AP is wanting to charge bloggers money for using their reports in their blogs.

Michelle Malkin fires back a few salvos. It seems that the Associated Press is not above quoting a few bloggers itself.

Censoring the Right and the Right to Censor

Michelle Malkin has been

So have others, according to LGF.

Disgraceful.

Of course, YouTube have the absolute right to say what goes or doesn’t on their site, but it does appear that they are shutting down one side of a public debate.

Bringing Out the Truth

One of the best ways blogs work is to bring out facts that might otherwise remain hidden.

There are many examples:

  • Fauxtography in the recent Lebanon war
  • Dan Rather’s fall from grace
  • The Red Cross “targeting” incident

These are a couple of majors there’s lots of examples every day.

  • Michelle Malkin was pictured in a bikini supposedly from 1992, then someone pointed out that that bikini only came on sale within the last year or so.
  • Little Green Footballs points out today that Syria is boasting the UN can’t stop them.
  • Howard Dean stating that Wallace was “Fair” but then changing his story after the Clinton interview.

Often, these sources are as innocuous as the MSM itself (often “quiet” stories), or the readership of a blog. In the case of the Red Cross, it was enough to point out pictures of real destruction by missiles.

My point is this: Original sources often say quite different things to the public presentation and/or interpretation.

Enter Winston Peters. “Brash is Evil”.

Ah… no, sorry he’s not.

Partisan Retoric

David Limbaugh outlines very well what Bush would have said on 9/11 of he had been trying to give a partisan speech.

Worth reading, just to get your self back in balance with reality.

Speaking of reality, it appears there’s a bit of a shortage around at the moment.

Exhibit A:

What’s his name from Iran claiming he’s a man of peace. I think the whole “destroy Israel” disqualifies that, but maybe the rule book has been recently updated?
Exhibit B:

Chirac calls for threat of Iran sanctions to be lifted. See above.

Exhibit Z:
Helen Clark slipping deeper into insanity. Well, apparently half of us suffer from it at some point… :)

(Z for New Zealand, don’t think that just cos I missed some letters I couldn’t have found something for each!)

I support the Pope too

Michelle Malkin has a roundup on the reaction to the Pope’s speech.
