Weapons of mass manipulation

Weapons of mass manipulation

Confirmation bias damages reputations. It ruins credibility. It destroys lives.

When researchers ignore contradictory data that undermines their assumptions, junk science prevails. When police conduct investigations with predetermined outcomes, wrongful convictions abound. And when reporters cherry-pick facts and distort images to serve political agendas, media outlets become dangerous weapons of mass manipulation.

Take Talia Lavin, a young journalist who has enjoyed a meteoric rise. Her pedigree appears impeccable on its face: She graduated with a degree in comparative literature from Harvard University six years ago. After graduation, she won a Fulbright Scholar fellowship to study in Ukraine. She “worked in all realms” of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency news agency and wire service, copy-edited for the feminist Lilith Magazine, and contributed stories and translations for the Huffington Post.

Lavin has held the coveted position of “fact-checker” for the revered New Yorker for the past three years. The publication brags that its “fact-checking department is known for its high standards.” It demands the ability “to quickly analyze a manuscript for factual errors, logical flaws, and significant omissions.” The editorial department requires “a strong understanding of ethical reporting standards and practices” and prefers “proficiency or fluency in a second language.”

Impressively, Lavin speaks four languages (Russian, Hebrew, Ukrainian and English). Her abdication of ethical reporting standards, however, raises fundamental questions not only about her competence, but also about her integrity — not to mention the New Yorker’s journalistic judgment.

With a single tweet, the New Yorker’s professional fact-checker smeared Justin Gaertner, a combat-wounded war veteran and computer forensic analyst for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Lavin, the professional fact-checker, rushed to judgment. She abused her platform. Amid the national media hysteria over President Donald Trump’s border enforcement policies, Lavin derided a photo of Gaertner shared by ICE, which had spotlighted his work rescuing abused children. Scrutinizing his tattoos, she claimed an image on his left elbow was an Iron Cross — a symbol of valor commonly and erroneously linked to Nazis.

The meme spread like social media tuberculosis: Look! The jackboots at ICE who hate children and families employ a real-life white supremacist.

Only it wasn’t an Iron Cross. It was a Maltese Cross, the symbol of double amputee Gaertner’s platoon in Afghanistan, Titan 2. He lost both legs during an IED-clearing mission and earned the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Combat Valor and the Purple Heart before joining ICE to combat online child exploitation.

When actual military veterans, whom Lavin failed to consult before defaming Gaertner so glibly, pointed out that the image looked more like a Maltese Cross, Lavin deleted her original tweet “so as not to spread misinformation.”

Too damned late. The harm to Gaertner’s name and honor is irreparable and cannot be unseen, unread or unpublished.

The New Yorker issued an obligatory apology and acknowledged that “a staff member erroneously made a derogatory assumption about ICE agent Justin Gaertner’s tattoo.” But what consequences will there be for her journalistic malpractice? Who is supervising her work at the famed publication? What other lapses might she be responsible for during her present and past stints as a checker of facts and arbiter of truth?

The magazine editors claim “we in no way share the viewpoint expressed in this tweet,” yet the abject ignorance of, and knee-jerk bigotry against, law enforcement, immigration enforcement and the military underlying Lavin’s slime run rampant in New York media circles. And they all know it.

Lavin has not commented on the matter and instead turned her Twitter account private. But we can infer her attitude about her present troubles from a defiant piece she published just last week in The Forward magazine, where she pens a regular column. Titled “No, We Don’t Have To Be Friends with Trump Supporters,” the piece, laden with Nazi allusions, decries asylum reform, strengthened borders and ICE agents enforcing the law.

Rejecting calls for decency in public debate over these contentious matters, she spat:

“(T)ough nuts, sugar. When they go low, stomp them on the head.”

She further raged:

“It is high time, when you find yourself next at a dinner party with someone who has gone Trump, to smash your glass to shards and leave. It is time to push yourself away from the table. It is time to cease to behave with subservient politesse towards those who embrace barbarity with unfettered glee.”

Better “gone Trump” than gone mad. In her unfettered haste to condemn those with whom she disagrees, the New Yorker’s professional fact-checker failed to check her own toxic biases. Lavin’s act was no innocent gaffe. Like the journalists-turned-propagandists who have falsely spread Obama-era photos of immigrant detention centers to attack the Trump White House, Lavin engaged in mass manipulation under the guise of resistance journalism.

Truth is collateral damage.

NYC’s war on academic excellence

NYC’s war on academic excellence
by Michelle Malkin

“I also have a dream.”

This rallying cry, handwritten on a simple white placard held up by an Asian-American mom at a protest this week against liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to radically transform New York City’s public schools, says it all. A new civil rights struggle in education has exploded — yet the national media and the usual celebrity voices for equality and justice are nowhere to be found.

While student “Dreamers” here illegally from south of the border garner bleeding-heart front-page stories and nightly news dispatches, the high-achieving sons and daughters of legal immigrants from Asia are getting shafted by far-left Democrats.

And it’s all in the perverted name of “diversity.”

De Blasio is hell-bent on destroying equal opportunity and merit-based admissions because the results are not equally distributed according to his social-engineering agenda. The Big Apple’s famed specialized schools, such as the Bronx High School of Science, Brooklyn Technical High School and High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, require an academic entrance exam. It’s a highly competitive process in which tens of thousands of students vie for a total of about 5,000 slots.

So what’s the problem? According to the bean-counting extremists, too many Asian-Americans have aced the test and are “overrepresented.” It’s not enough for the social justice crowd to settle for a 20 percent minority set-aside. They want to scrap the test altogether. A bill to eliminate the exams passed the state assembly education committee last week. Though it may die this year, the toxic principles underlying the legislation have infected the left for decades.

Dullard de Blasio falsely argues that white privilege and class privilege are to blame for the lack of black and Latino student representation at the elite schools. The two groups account for 67 percent of public school students but only made up 10 percent of elite school admissions offers last year. By contrast, Asian-Americans, who make up 16 percent of public school students, received 52 percent of offers in the past year.

So are Asian-Americans classified as “white” now? And how does de Blasio get away with the lie that these best and brightest Asian-American students are economically privileged?

Fact: The city’s own poverty assessment shows that Asians are the poorest demographic group, with 24.1 percent living at or below poverty — vs. 19.5 percent citywide. The New York Post reports that overall, 45 percent of students at the “elite eight” schools qualify for free lunch.

As I’ve observed for years, liberal race-fixers believe that “too many” Asian-American students winning school admissions on their own merits is a bad, bad thing. In our case, overcoming the supposed encumbrances of ethnicity and skin color is viewed not as a proud accomplishment but as a political liability.

This is classic crab-in-the-bucket syndrome. If you put a single crab in an uncovered bucket, it will find a way to climb up and out on its own. But if you put a dozen crabs in a bucket, eleven will fight with all their might to pull down the independent striver who attempts to escape. And so it is with the identity politics mob and the equality of outcome cult. They can’t stand high achievers and freethinkers who escape their iron grip.

A sad irony of the battle over racial preferences in education is that many of the very leaders who have lobbied hardest to re-jigger the numbers on college campuses to fit a politically correct, proportional ideal are supposedly “progressive” Asian-Americans.

I personally endured attacks from many of them who labeled me and other conservative minority leaders “sellouts” for opposing government-imposed diversity policies that sabotaged color-blindness and punished academic excellence.

Now, those same quota champions are seeing those same policies blow up in their faces in New York City’s high schools. “Diversity” at all costs means taking the hardest-working, top-scoring students who earned their seats on the bus — and tossing them under the wheels.

Tell me again who the real sellouts are?

Step One to Stop False Accusations: Exposure

Step One to Stop False Accusations: Exposure
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2018

Incontrovertible fact: People lie.

They fudge little things, like their height or weight. They exaggerate their athletic prowess or professional accomplishments. They deceive family, friends, lovers, voters, government officials, business partners and themselves. They lie about murder, theft, kidnapping, rape and discrimination. They lie for attention, deflection, power and profit.

Often, the reasons for manufacturing devastating fables are indiscernible or unfathomable. But this much is clear: If there are no consequences for lying about crime, false accusations will continue to ruin the lives of innocents — poor and rich, black and white, liberal and conservative, civilian and cop.

According to the University of Michigan Law School’s National Registry of Exonerations, 2,224 innocent criminal defendants since 1989 have been cleared of all charges in their cases. The average prison term served by exonerees is 14 years. In total, wrongful convictions have cost exonerees 19,610 years of freedom since 1982.

Wrongful convictions are based on a rotten foundation of lies and untruths constructed by a village of false accusers, including jailhouse snitches, biased investigators, corrupt crime lab analysts, faulty eyewitnesses, and ruthless prosecutors acting in bad faith.

John Bunn, wrongfully convicted of assault and murder when he was just 14 years old, is just one of more than a dozen innocent citizens who became entangled in New York Police Department Det. Louis Scarcella’s nefarious web of deception. The infamous cop falsified evidence, suppressed evidence and coerced false confessions to ensure convictions and bolster his career as part of what one judge called a “pattern and practice” of misconduct demonstrating “disregard for rules, law, and the truth.” Bunn and co-defendant Rosean Hargrave, became the 12th and 13th exonerees who had been targeted by Scarcella, just this month.

Daryl Fulton and Nevest Coleman each served nearly a quarter-century behind bars for a 1997 rape and murder of a woman in Chicago they did not commit. They endured physical abuse by detectives with a long history of coercing false confessions. Fulton and Coleman were released last November and granted certificates of actual innocence two months ago after post-conviction DNA testing and reinvestigation by the Cook County Conviction Integrity Unit cleared them — and instead implicated a repeat sexual offender who lived near the victim.

Famed private attorney Kathleen Zellner, the most successful exoneration specialist in the nation, recently filed a civil rights lawsuit on Fulton’s behalf. She has won landmark settlements on behalf of exonerees Ryan Ferguson, wrongfully convicted of murder in Missouri, and former Washington state police officer Ray Spencer, wrongfully convicted of sexually molesting his own children — the result of lies told by a vengeful ex-wife who was having an affair with a conniving police detective overseeing the investigation.

Despite a complete lack of physical evidence, forensic evidence or corroborating witnesses, New Yorkers VanDyke Perry and Gregory Counts served 11 years and 26 years respectively for an alleged gang rape in 1992. Their convictions, vacated just this month, were based solely on the account of a woman who recanted years later and blamed a boyfriend for pressuring her into making it all up. The liar will face no charges because the statute of limitations has expired.

Question: If accusers can level rape and other claims decades after a purported crime occurs, why shouldn’t the statute of limitations on prosecuting lies about crimes and seeking civil redress against all enablers be extended proportionally, too?

This summer, I’ll dedicate a special series of columns and CRTV.com videos to false allegations against innocent men and women of all backgrounds. And I’ll continue my investigative reporting on the ongoing wrongful conviction nightmare of Asian-American and former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, which was built on a super-sized Jenga tower of police bias, investigative incompetence, prosecutorial misconduct, media malpractice, pre-trial publicity-stoked mob rule, forensic failures and unprecedented courtroom secrecy.

Incontrovertible reality: These travesties happen in Democratic-controlled big cities and the rural South alike; by bad cops and to good cops; at the hands of white and black prosecutors, judges and ill-trained experts and investigators of all stripes.

What’s shocking is not that these injustices are routine, but that public amnesia sets in every time accusers level sensational allegations of crimes in the court of public opinion before all the facts are known. Witness the knee-jerk social media conviction of innocent white Texas state trooper Daniel Hubbard by anti-cop advocate and former New York Daily News columnist Shaun King, who spread uncritically the false claims of a black woman who lied about Hubbard raping her during a traffic stop.

The admitted liar, Sherita Dixon-Cole, will not be prosecuted based on a technicality. Incredibly, King is reportedly moving on to a job with the Harvard-affiliated Fair Punishment Project, which in part conducts research to prevent more wrongful convictions.

Reform begins with confronting, instead of denying, reality. The cure for ignorance is exposure. Bias of all kinds destroys lives. People lie about everything under the sun. Women do lie about rape. Judges, prosecutors and police are not infallible. The system does fail.

The good news is that each of us is capable of helping amend and avert these wrongs. The bad news is that no one is ever safe.

What’s Up With Trump’s Multiple Clashes With GOP Lawmakers? Russia, Of Course

Besides McConnell, McCain, and Flake, he's also had behind the scenes interactions with Senators Corker and Tillis.

The post What’s Up With Trump’s Multiple Clashes With GOP Lawmakers? Russia, Of Course appeared first on RedState.

President Trump’s rancor with lawmakers from his own party should come as no surprise. He’s looking for cover that they’re not providing.

And while his public feuding with John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Mitch McConnell is well-documented, by now, there have been several others that he’s had more private clashes with.

A for instance would be the recently passed sanctions bill against Russia.

Trump expressed frustration over a bipartisan bill sanctioning Russia and tried to convince Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that it wasn’t good policy, according to three people familiar with the call. Trump argued that the legislation was unconstitutional and said it would damage his presidency. Corker was unrelenting, these people said, and told Trump the bill was going to pass both houses with bipartisan support.

“He was clearly frustrated,” one person said of Trump’s call with Corker earlier this month. The bill cleared Congress overwhelmingly last month and Trump grudgingly signed it on Aug. 2.

Bummer. And his budding relationship with Russian strongman, Putin, was off to such a great start, too.

Russia has since expelled a number of U.S. diplomats, in response.

Another burr under Trump’s saddle is a bill that protects Robert Mueller (or any special counsel) from being fired by the president.

Trump dialed up Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) on Aug. 7, two days before a blunt call with the Senate majority leader that spilled over into a public feud. Tillis is working with Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) on a bill designed to protect Robert Mueller, the independent counsel investigating the president’s Russia connections, from any attempt by Trump to fire him.

The Mueller bill came up during the Tillis-Trump conversation, according to a source briefed on the call — the latest signal of the president’s impatience with GOP senators’ increasing declarations of independence from his White House. Trump was unhappy with the legislation and didn’t want it to pass, one person familiar with the call said.

Spokespeople for both Tillis and Corker refused to discuss specifics of the conversations, but did confirm that the conversations took place.

Trump’s chewing out of GOP senators, according to people briefed on the calls, reflected the president’s frustration that fellow Republicans would make moves that could damage him, particularly on an investigation that he detests. Trump also complained about the Russian sanctions measure in a call with McConnell earlier this month that devolved into shouting. The New York Times first reported that Trump discussed the Russia probe with McConnell.

“It seems he is just always focused on Russia,” one senior GOP aide said.

That’s because he is.

In the couple of weeks John Kelly has been chief of staff, he’s attempted to exert some control over Trump’s unscheduled interactions with lawmakers. The president is said to have a habit of seeing a senator on television, getting a wild hair, and then having an assistant call that senator up.

Kelly has asked that there be a senior White House aide present whenever Trump make these calls, and that Trump be briefed on the topic he’s planning to call about.

That sure speaks volumes.

Embarrassing, cringe-worthy volumes.

The president needs to understand that he’s likely never going to get the approval of Democrats for anything he’s hoping to push. He needs the Republicans. He needs actual allies in Washington, and not just clingers.

He’s really not off to a good start.

It’s a Cult: Spiritual Adviser Paula White Makes Wild Claims About Trump’s Role in God’s Plan

Sane people should run very far away from anyone suggesting such a thing.

The post It’s a Cult: Spiritual Adviser Paula White Makes Wild Claims About Trump’s Role in God’s Plan appeared first on RedState.

It will be interesting to see if Trump supporters who thought Barack Obama’s involvement with Jeremiah White was a huge red flag—and make no mistake, it was—will show any concern over statements made by President Trump’s own spiritual adviser, prosperity gospel preacher and televangelist Paula White. She made some pretty wild claims on convicted fraudster and former (as far as we know) pervert Jim Bakker’s show.

While speaking on a panel on “The Jim Bakker Show,” White said that Trump’s presidential victory was similar to a story from the Hebrew Bible where a woman named Esther was chosen to be queen, since both parties were unlikely to be selected for their roles.

As the scripture goes, Esther was a young, orphaned Jewish woman living in exile who, through her wits and good looks, ends up being selected by the Persian king to be his queen at a time when Jews were widely persecuted.

Because of her new position of power, Esther was able to stop a plot to murder all the Jewish people in Persia. The Bible concludes that Esther was placed in her position as queen by God to fulfill this important mission.

On Tuesday, White compared Trump to Queen Esther, saying that he, too, was selected by God to carry out a divine plan.

I’ll be honest, televangelists generally make my skin crawl. When they start explaining current events with the Old Testament and making sleazy politicians out to be the ones chosen by God to carry out a divine plan, I get both the heebies and the jeebies. It’s even worse when there’s a big studio audience heaping a pile of amens on top of whatever pseudo-spiritual political rationale the preacher is laying down. These people are, at best, misinformed.

White went so far as to suggest that those opposing Trump are literally opposing God.

“They say about our president, ‘Well, he is not presidential.’ Thank goodness. Thank goodness. Thank goodness,” White said. “And I mean that with all due respect. Because, in other words, he is not a polished politician. In other words, he is authentically, whether people like it or not, has been raised up by God.”

“God says that he raises up and places all people in places of authority,” she continued. “It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God.” (emphasis added)

I have no quarrel with the Judeo-Christian concept that God raises up leaders and puts people in authority. With that comes the reality that not every person raised to a position of authority is put there for the immediate good of humanity. I’m fairly certain that Paula White and those who follow her weren’t saying the same thing about opposing Trump’s predecessor who God also placed in authority.

Let me be perfectly frank here, anyone who claims that disagreeing with any President’s agenda is tantamount to opposing God is crazy. Sane people should run very far away from anyone suggesting such a thing. To say it about Donald Trump makes you a certifiable lunatic or a dangerous liar.

Trump’s alleged Christian faith—which comes with a stated belief that he has never needed to ask forgiveness for anything—absolutely seems to be born of political expedience. I can’t say for sure what’s in his heart but even by his own admission he’s broken a few commandments. You do the math. Paula White sure doesn’t seem like much of a stickler for doctrine if her spiritual advice left Trump with the idea that he was immaculately conceived.

Erick Erickson made waves prior to Trump’s inauguration by calling White a”a prosperity gospel charlatan” and  “Trinity denying heretic.” Erickson pointed out that the doctrine of the Trinity was settled at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325. Those who deny it are by definition preaching something other than Christianity.

Since AD 325, it has been settled in the orthodoxy of the Christian church of every single Christian denomination that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God. Re-iterated in the First Council of Constantinople in AD 381, the Nicene Creed as we know it today contains these line:

I believe in one God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of his Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light,
Very God of very God,
Begotten, not made,
Being of one substance with the Father,
By whom all things were made;

This is literally 1,691 year old settled orthodoxy of every Christian denomination. Presbyterians, Catholics, Orthodox, Methodists, Baptists, Anglicans, and other Christian denominations, along with a few Episcopalian churches all say this creed. It, along with the Apostles Creed, are the two major, foundational creeds in Christendom.

At least one member of Trump’s religious advisory panel has walked away from Trump. White shows no signs of doubting Trump though. She certainly exemplifies the cult of Trump. Let’s hope people who support the President do so based on policy and not on religious fervor stirred up by a crackpot.

Hawaii Rep. Beth Fukumoto

Hawaii Rep. Beth Fukumoto

(Updates Below)

The racial discord in this country is both palpable and intensifying. One of the bothersome aspects however is when the people who supposedly decry the hatred and division are the very same stoking that foundry of intolerance. Note how those in the media question with dismay how it is the Nazi party has so much exposure these days, all while they cannot refrain from granting the SS-holes blanket coverage.

Equally vexing are politicians who supposedly speak out against the divisions in this country while highlighting those same social barricades enthusiastically. Let us now go to Mauka, in the county of Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the district where State Representative Beth Fukumoto originates. The politician has made a small splash on social media by posting a letter purportedly sent to her by a purported Donald Trump supporter.

Fukumoto had previously caused ripples in the aquamarine when she switched parties this year, from being a GOP representative to a Democrat. This switchover was said to be due to her being removed from her Minority Leader position, a move spurned by her comments made to the negative towards newly elected President Trump. This was really more of a lateral move, given Beth has posted pics of herself with liberal iconography, such as “She Persisted” posters, or sporting a magenta feminist vagina hat. Also, those scathing comments about Trump? They were delivered at a Women’s March rally.

(What’s the Hawaiian word for “RINO”?)

Now Fukumoto is drawing attention to herself based on a missive delivered to her office. The typewritten letter, dated 08 – 09, was posted to her personal Twitter account.

As many outlets in the media have dutifully detailed this as an example of hate, and repeated that Donald Trump is the cause, note the lack of journalistic curiosity. There are a number of questions regarding this correspondence, most which will go unasked.

I contacted Rep. Fukumoto’s office, and reached her spokesperson. I asked if the letter had been turned over to any law enforcement agency, and was told at this time that no, the letter had not been given to any authorities. This is after one full week from the letter being received. I had a number of other questions, including a request to have a picture of the full face of the envelope, but was then told that any further inquiry had to be delivered via email.

 

  • Why would someone from “La, Calif” be so concerned with a Hawaiian State Representative?
  • Why are the stamps on the envelope not postmarked?

 

stamp1

 

  • Why would someone use $0.10 stamps which were issued in 1975? And why would they separate the block when it does not give sufficient postage to deliver said envelope today?

 

stamp2

 

  • Has anyone tried tracking the USPS bar code shown at the bottom of the envelope? If that is a code that derives from a commercial account it may be traceable, or can track   the origination address. This would at the very least tell someone the location from where the letter had been mailed.

 

stamp3

 

At press time I had not received contact back from the spokesperson, nor Rep. Fukumoto herself. Considering the level of accusation being leveled towards the President the burden of proof to this culpability rests with Ms. Fukumoto.

UPDATE:

Following this post I did receive contact back from Rep. Fukumoto herself. She states that, contrary to what I had been told by her reps, they have reached out to authorities: “Yes, we’ve been in touch with law enforcement to see if it’s possible to determine the origin of the letter. The postmark of the letter indicated that it was from CA, but it’s faded so the city is not entirely clear.”

As for an image of the envelope she informed me that a pic had been provided to The Huffington Post. (Available here.) The writer, a resident of Hawaii, received this image Wednesday evening.

HuffPost sent a copy of the envelope to officials at the U.S. Postal Service in Honolulu, who confirmed that the enveloped was processed by a USPS center in California before it was sent to Honolulu.

Weeks before the tragic events of Charlottesville, the City of St. Louis was embroiled in a controversy over the removal of the Confederate memorial located in Forest Park. Though talk of relocating the memorial began in 2015, Mayor Lyda Krewson, who assumed office in April of this year, revived the discussion, strongly advocating its removal. Arguments were raised on both sides of the issue.  There were some demonstrations — largely nonviolent, thankfully. And the memorial, which was dedicated in 1914, was ultimately removed in June.

I wanna feel sunlight on my face.
I see the dust-cloud
Disappear without a trace.

But the street which formerly led to it remained in place.  Until Monday. While most area residents focused their attention on the solar eclipse, Confederate Drive was being torn up by the City Streets Department.

The city streets department says it’s spending nearly $12,000 to add plants, flowers, and grass. Barring any weather problems, work should be completed by next week.

Some city leaders claim a master plan dating back to 1995 always included removing Confederate Drive in favor of green space. Since the road never served any other purposed or use, it city leaders said it makes sense to tear it up and turn it into a garden.

Fair enough. The street may well have served no other purpose – it certainly was never integral to my jogs or bike rides through the park. And I like green space as much as the next person. (As an aside, Forest Park really is a jewel, and I’m glad it’s part of the St. Louis landscape.)

And there may well have been such a plan in the works, though one wonders why it took 22 years to be implemented. (Come to think of it, we’re talking about city government here. Maybe one needn’t wonder all that much.)

Still, the timing is quite interesting, particularly given that a bill to rename the street “Scott Joplin Drive” is currently under consideration by the Board of Alderman. Guess that measure can be tabled now, and the City can move on to other pressing issues.

To be clear, I don’t have an issue with the Confederate memorial being removed from Forest Park and placed in a museum. Nor do I take issue with the removal of Confederate Drive, coincidental timing notwithstanding. Like many, though, I do wonder where we ultimately draw the line? And whether the recent push to tear down and rename will help heal old wounds or inflict new ones?

We’re still building and burning down love.

What should we do with Obama the racist?
"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,'
We need segregated buses. This is Obamas America."
