Bloody Hands

obama, obama jokes, political, humor, cartoon, conservative, hope n' change, hope and change, stilton jarlsberg, ferguson, nypd, murder, racism, execution

On Saturday, a lowlife loser named Ismaaiyl Brinsley pulled the trigger which ended the lives of Officers Rafael Ramos and Winjian Liu, but he didn't act alone. Not by a long shot.

He was assisted and encouraged by politicians, professional race-baiters, and a host of liberal fools who detest this country and our nation's police officers.

Topping the list is Barack Obama, who looked at the Ferguson grand jury's exoneration of Officer Darren Wilson in the self-defense killing of thug Michael Brown, and declared that there was a systemic problem with cops killing black citizens - and a streak of racism in all police forces which was as wide as our country and as long as our history. "Black people aren't making this up," he said of the entirely made up charges against Officer Wilson, then said it was "necessary" for black Americans to protest and make people "uncomfortable" to effect change.

We're pretty sure that being shot in the face, as the two NYPD officers were, is pretty damned uncomfortable.

Eric Holder has aggressively been stoking the fires of race hatred and anti-cop sentiment. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Louis Farrakhan have all been pushing the "hands up" myth, while either hinting at or actively calling for violence.

New York mayor Bill de Blasio has been allowing "hands up" demonstrators to close down city streets, assault police officers, and chant "What do we want? DEAD COPS!" - while also speculating that his own black son should be afraid of police officers.

The Congressional Black Caucus raised their hands in support of criminals instead of cops, as did congressional staffers, CNN news commentators, and any number of millionaire football players.

Liberal college professors suspended classes and tests, to allow dimwitted students to heal from the "trauma" of the grand jury decision in Ferguson - and perhaps to join in the protests (and occasional riots) to defend the all-important right of young black men to rob stores and assault the police.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley heard it all. Absorbed the messages of anger and hate which were delivered nonstop in the media and from politicians up to and including the president of the United States. We know this to be the case because, God help us all, he told the world on social media before putting a bullet into his own worthless brain.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley was not a "lone wolf" any more than was Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan.  He was a foot soldier who got his orders, loud and clear, from those who would use race to divide our nation for their own detestable purposes.

They aren't hard to recognize. They're the ones with their bloodstained "hands up."

And one can't wonder what the tolerance level of law enforcement officers all over the country will be now. And, will this unpleasant incident give those such as Dianne Feinstein (I wonder if she was Dan White's mentor) more reason to foam at the mouth with her delirium about how guns kill people?

The Digital Hairshirt said...

As I read the news, it occurred to me - if Brinsley had been observed beforehand and acting strangely . . . no cop was even allowed to stop and frisk him.

Standlow said...

Thank you, Stilton, for expressing so well what all decent Americans are thinking in the wake of this horrible double murder. We are reaping the whirlwind sown by the race hustlers.

Geoff King said...

The stage is now set for Martial Law and possible civil war, which is what the globalists who own the government desire the most. The race baiting, militarization of local police departments, and the MSM's failure to denounce rioting or even report about black on white crime can only lead to one outcome - anarchy and the total collapse of society.
The fuse is lit and it is burning shorter every day:
God help us all.

Colby Muenster said...

I guess I'm stuck on Looney Tunes. The word "dispicable" comes to mind.

And Fred Ciampi is correct. Will this incident make the race baiters contrite? Nope, they'll start blathering about guns killing people.

The Bible teaches that we will reap what we sow. It's far past time for Holder, O'Liar, DeBlabio, Sharpton... to start reaping.

Bruce Bleu said...

What I want to know is WHEN are all the fulminating imbezzles (see what I did there, Colby?) going to be arrested and set before a Grand Jury for CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT MURDER! This is a REAL concern for those who want to live by laws and hold responsible the parties who perpetrated LIES to advance a storyline and agenda they desire. It's like the Romans billing an event in the Colosseum as a "Pet Show"! Yeah, THAT'S it... Christians into the LIARS den!
When those who reject being governed from the inside by regeneration of God don't want to be governed from the OUTSIDE by laws! The ultimate anarchy... NOBODY'S in charge... HEDONISM run amok! They can do whatever they want, and no-BODY or no-THING can stop them from using ANY method to get their own way!

WMD said...

Don't recall who made this observation, may have been Gutfeld. Anyway, someone said, and I'm paraphrasing, "I wonder if the professors at Columbia and Harvard will give students a break from finals to grieve over the two dead officers"?
Not likely.

bocopro said...

See . . . the problem here is that I go on other sites and drop comments about these kinds of controversial issues, and then I come here to find that you've said it much better and clearer with more impact than I did.

S0 . . . JUST STOP IT!! I taught creative and technical and business writing for 15 years and you're making me look bad.


American Cowboy said...



@Fred Ciampi

Less tolerance, which will not be a good thing from the younger more militaristic cops. And yes to your question.

@Geoff King

I believe you are spot on. One may hope that is not the intended outcome, but IMO only a fool will not prepare for the worst.

Personally I have stocked up well on nonperishables, I have fresh game in the freezer, and plenty of ammo for hunting more when that runs out. As a patriotic American who has made a living off the land I do feel some sympathy and concern for the average city dweller who may not have it as easy to do so.
I will be happy to help provide for my neighbors though when things do go south. Even the whining liberals.

Rod said...

This is the best reporting I've seen in while. Thank you; well done.

Cookie said...

Thank you, SJ. Well said--in picture and text. Once again we begin to wonder how we got sent spinning into this alternate universe. Will policeman need to start wearing full body armor out on the streets now?

Grumpy Curmudgeon said...

From an article I just read concerning the other assassinations of NYPD - "In January 1972, two other officers—Rocco Laurie and Gregory Foster—were fatally shot, as they walked out of a diner in the 9th Precinct in the East Village. Foster, 22, was black, and Laurie, 23, was white." Greg Foster was in my boot camp platoon - he and Laurie teamed up in Vietnam and agreed to join the NYPD together if they made it back (Foster was one of the few from that Parris Island Platoon that made it back). They took on the new 'Cop On The Beat' program and walked a beat in one of the baddest neighborhoods in NY. They were so successful that the Black Panthers assassinated them. All the perps were located, and strangely all were shot while resisting arrest - in some cases 38 times. Now certainly I don't support that excessiveness, for anything more than a mag full is a waste of ammunition.

@Bruce Bleu,
If our "leaders" in DC only had the brains and common sense of Bugs Bunny! But nooOOoo. We're stuck with Elmer Fudds and Daffy Ducks.

Columbia and Harvard students will no doubt be given a day off to celebrate. Mrs. Colby is fond of referring to university types as being "educated beyond their intelligence." So very true...

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous- Assuming you're referring to Brinsley, he certainly could be Obama's spiritual son.

@Fred Ciampi- I've read that morale is rotten in police departments across the country, but I don't think they'll deliberately let it affect the performance of their jobs. That being said, some changes are being made of necessity, such as not going to potentially dangerous scenes without sufficient backup. That's going to cause delay in responding to some incidents - but the fault is entirely that of the race-baiters, not of the police.

@The Digital Hairshirt- "Stop and frisk" has saved a lot of lifes; most of them, according to statistics, the lives of black citizens. But you're right - it can't be done anymore.

@Standlow- Reaping the whirlwind is exactly right. I'm beyond furious at the enormous, hateful fraud of the "hands up" campaign and Obama/Holder's incessant drumbeat calling citizens to a race war.

@Geoff King- Any plan to destabilize our country in a major way must first find a way to take the police out of the equation. People can debate whether that's the intent here, but it's undeniably the effect.

@Colby Muenster- Far from making the race hucksters contrite, we're seeing spectacles like Al Sharpton now claiming victimhood because he's receiving theats. By all means, he should call the police.

@Bruce Bleu- No court will ever bring charges against all of the people who created the poisonous environment in which Brinsley's worst - possibly insane - thoughts were confirmed and reinforced as "normal" and even virtuous.

Again, I will never accept the idea that Brinsley was a lone wolf in the classic sense. He had a vast support network of politicians, media members, and progressive nitwits.

@WMD- That sure sounds like a Gutfeld quote (and I'm a huge Gutfeld fan). It will indeed be interesting to see what steps our ivory tower institutions will take to mark the loss of these two officers.

@bocopro- I'm perfectly capable of ham-handed writing (and prove it on a regular basis). I think my writing was more direct and clear today because the issues are so clear...and so important.

@American Cowboy- If you do provide for whining liberals, I hope you at least teach them to do tricks for their food - like making them memorize the Constitution.

Of course, as they've shown in their stupid effing demonstrations, they already know how to "play dead."

@Rod- In fairness, I never do any actual reporting - I just try to find the heart of current news stories and find a point of focus. And, of course, add my own opinion.

Despite all the comedy around here, it's a task I take enormously seriously, and I appreciate your comment.

@Cookie- I hope the cops won't need full body armor, but it's too early to know. One thing for sure is that the people who will be hurt the worst by this concerted attack on police are minorities (mostly black) who live in high crime areas.

Just another example of how the left deliberately keeps far too many black Americans in fear and slavery.

@Grumpy Curmudgeon- I'd agree with you about excessive use of ammunition, but I think you're forgetting that "style points" are also an important consideration.

@Chuck- You always have permission to share anything of mine. That being said, it's especially easy to do if you go to my Facebook page at and "like" or "join" or whatever the heck people do to see my posts. Then you can just hit a "share" button.

@Colby Muenster- Similar to Mrs. Colby's statement, I was talking to the younger Jarlsberg last night and opined that 20-somethings are over-educated now. Then I corrected myself, saying "they're over-schooled and under-educated."

But that's just my bias that "education" should only apply to things which are actually useful in life.

Grumpy Curmudgeon said...

@Stilton: I've long advocated, and I see that at least one school district is requiring it, that passing the same citizenship test thats used to become a 'naturalized citizen' should be a requirement for high school graduation.

Also I advocate a series of courses titled :Life 101 - that educated these pampered little p****** what really is ahead of them i.e., trying telling your boss 'Whatever' when asked the status of a project....

PRY said...

Obammy must be tingling with joy...his minions (knowledgeable and otherwise) again have created havoc and injustice in the name of peace and justice...and again, we hear these insipid words from the Dear Leader of the free world..."lets us not use words that harm, but words that heal", or something along those lines, seems I have heard that before from him!
Mayor DeBlasio spouted EXACTLY as Obammy does when he is trying to take a step back today!
And the Obammy juggernaut continues.....

John the Econ said...

Too bad I already bought the new big screen for my office. Two cops get shot by a black guy. Doesn't that give sanction for me to "demonstrate" or otherwise release my "understandable anger"?

On NYC and violence:

Was chatting the other day with Mrs. Econ about the whole "vaccination" thing, where millions of mothers have decided that vaccinations are bad, (getting much of their information on the subject from ex-Playboy bunnies) and are not allowing their children to be vaccinated. As a result, we're now seeing a re-emergence of diseases that were all but unknown when I was a child.

I think this is due to the unfortunate reality that today there is little living memory left of people who were around when polio, smallpox and other diseases still ran rampant. It was the development and deployment of vaccines that made these diseases a distant memory. So young parents today haven't a clue, as even to their grandparents these crippling and deadly diseases were but a distant memory.

The same is happening in New York City. The vast majority of today's Progressive New York Yuppies (or whatever you want to call them) have little to no first-hand knowledge of the reality of that city during its decline through the '60s and '70s and early '80s. This was a sad era where getting mugged a couple times a year was an expected reality for most people. Today's new yuppies now see Giuliani, one of the people most responsible for the turn-around of the '80s as an aging grandparent seemingly shilling for the right, so he's disregarded. Instead, they elect a Progressive moron like de Blasio who happily pals around with recidivist jackals like Sharpton & co and who openly vows to undo all of the hard work that has been done over the last 30 years to make the city as livable as it's been in a half-century.

And "the rich" that support this insanity don't care, because they've got their armed guards, limos, and doorman buildings to keep them separated from the out-of-control riff-raff that everyone else has to live with.

So now that the Progressive establishment from Obama through Holder down to the Mayor's Office have thrown the only people between civilization and complete anarchy under the bus, where do they go from here? The irony is that the Progressives are going to get exactly what they claim they are most afraid of: As the most moral and competent of law enforcement see no more future in the profession, they will leave it, leaving police work to the least professional and competent, who are only in it for the civil servant benefits.

This is just another fine example of how Progressive policy is self-fulfilling in bringing about everything they say they are against.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Grumpy Curmudgeon- I'd like to see your suggestion implemented for high school graduation...and for getting a voter registration card.

@PRY- Obama is largely playing a no-lose game; all he really wants is chaos.

Regarding de Blasio, it was comically infuriating hearing the press conference at which he tried to portray himself as always supporting the police, and the media essentially making up the narrative against him. What an a-hole.

@John the Econ- When you go looting, remember that "violence against property isn't violence." So don't hurt anyone when you're grabbing that bigscreen TV, but it's okay to torch the place afterwards.

You make a wonderful and important point about the blight that is killing us all - a one-two punch of younger people who are ignorant of all that came before, and their transformation into "twits" who are incapable of understanding anything longer than 140 characters, analytical thought, or forming longterm memories. And I'm not kidding in the least.

This is why they can fight against vaccinations, hate cops, equate Gitmo to Auschwitz, embrace socialism and, oh yeah, call it "racism" when a short person asks a tall person of color for a helping hand.

But getting back to your central point, you're absolutely right that Progressive "victory" in "fixing" police departments will be akin to the way they've "fixed" healthcare: the best and most capable practitioners will flee the system.

Grumpy Curmudgeon said...

@John the Econ: You're right on the idiots refusing to vaccinate their children. My sister was probably one of the last polio cases in the US, contracted a 'mild' (for polio) case just before the vaccine came out. She passed recently from a disorder (I don't know the clinical name, but it's often mis-diagnosed as ALS) that affects people who have had polio earlier in their lives. What these "parents" are doing to their children should be criminal. They may pooh-pooh the vaccinations, but the long reaching consequences of most of these diseases is substantial - that's why we came up with these vaccination protocols. IDIOTS!

Grumpy Curmudgeon said...

@Stilton: It's a wonderful day in the neighborhood, can we say Escape From New York? Of course we can.....

I too would like to see it a requirement for voter registration, just like the other option of having to provide a 1040 copy that shows that you're not somebody's dependent and that you actually earned an income AND paid taxes on it. Not gonna happen though - the DOJ would be blowing spit bubbles....still I can dream.

When I had to interview my replacements for when I retired, I gave up on this generation of graduates. When I hired on, I was grateful to be a lineman for $12/hr - these 'graduates' literally followed the infamous (but false) Bill Gates Message - they wanted a company car and a company paid i-Phone, only wanted to work 8/5, $40K and full benefits to start, and an open dress code. One actually told me (when told of the job requirements) that they would rather dig ditches for Brown & Root - I happened to have a business card for the HR Director at B&R (a friend) - I gave it to him and told him I would arrange the interview - G'day

John the Econ said...

And why are so many so willingly ignorant of the not-all-that-distant past? It's can't be because they aren't exposed to it in school, because practically every single day they're lectured about "Jim Crow" and the evil of everything that existed before the "Great Society".

Perhaps it's because of the way that it's taught is a flat manner distilled down to half-truths and biased political narratives that strip history of any meaning outside of what the Progressives want it to mean. By the time I was done with school, I was over it. I can't imagine how "over it" kids are today. So they choose "ignorance" over enlightenment, because the Progressives have poisoned enlightenment for them.

Gotta stop now, because this is making that awful John Lennon Christmas song come to mind and I must flagellate myself to cleanse myself of it...

John the Econ said...

Random thoughts on the above:

1) Headline: "NYC Mayor calls for pause to protests". Oh, now he calls for a "pause" in protesting, just when everyone outside of the Sharpton sphere is starting to get a bit more outraged.

Remember this: Progressive politicians are more afraid of you than they are of the thugs. The thugs provide them an excuse for more power. The rest of us on the other hand can be a real threat to them if we were ever to realize we had the power.

2) Liberalism is the easy, lazy choice for people. True conservatism doesn't promise you "things" or something-for-nothing like liberalism does. Under post-modern liberalism, all you have to do is surrender your autonomy and other peoples money and they promise to make things right by fiat. Little thinking or other personal effort required. The problem with conservatism is that it demands personal responsibility and sacrifice, which has never been as popular, and doesn't stand a chance in an instant gratification world. Conservatism only has a chance where people are truly educated, which is why the Progressives now own almost all of the education establishment, so that can never happen.

3) Obama's Presser last week: Goes on again about having to spend billions on "infrastructure" (aka "pork") but then disses the Keystone Pipeline because it will only produce 10,000 jobs or so for only a few years. Um, what does he think happens when you finish building a bridge? Those jobs don't last forever either.

So what's the problem? Even as a lame duck, he's gotta hang in there for his eco-fascist friends, or is it the notion that the Keystone Pipeline is a private effort creating good paying (albeit temporary) jobs without the involvement of government? I guess that must really burn him up inside.

4) At the same presser, commenting on the Sony hack: "We cannot have a society in which some dictators someplace can start imposing censorship here in the United States because if somebody is able to intimidate us out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what they start doing once they see a documentary that they don't like or news reports that they don't like," Obama said. "That's not who we are. That's not what America is about."

No, in America, that's his job. (Did the guy who made the Benghazi video ever get out of jail? Is Dinesh D'Souza still being harassed over phony campaign laws that nobody else is being held up to?)

Then he lays into Sony for not consulting him first! Really! If you need any example of how Obama honestly believes that America is a fascist nation, this example should do. Not that I agree at all with Sony's decisions, but private companies do not need to seek out Presidential advice before making business decisions. What arrogance! Sony's lawyers almost immediately shot back, stating that the Administration never once reached out to them between the time of the breach discovery and their decision. So, Obama has lost to both the Norks and Sony. Par for the course.

John the Econ said...

Oh, and finally I've had it with this "#blacklivesmatter" nonsense. Stop insulting our intelligence, because obviously, they don't. The vast majority of blacks murdered are murdered by other blacks. It only seems to make it to the national radar on the rare occasion when a black is not murdered by another black.

So the irrational response is to emasculate the only people standing between civilization and complete anarchy in the places blacks are most vulnerable, their own neighborhoods! Can this really be part of a sinister plan? The KKK couldn't possibly do any better. Until something new happens, the people in these neighborhoods will remain poor, subjugated, and have miserable lives while remaining under the control of the Sharptons and their ilk. Evil. THIS IS EVIL!

Butterkäse said...

So OK, people on the right, as we all know, are such racists and sexists..

Of course, as we have often read, black people that people on the right (excluding said black people) admire are in fact Uncle Tom's, approved by the white power structure, except for black people on the right, including those that white people on the right admire.

Confused? That would be the general idea of the CPUSA, including Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. And at least one page posted at google+ that was full of hate.

What a sick world the "progressives" are creating.

John the Econ said...

Want confusion? Here's some confusion for you. This is what a media liberal says after some anti-government nutcases go on a rampage:

"It’s long past time for prominent conservatives and Republicans to do some introspection and ask whether they’re contributing to outbreaks of right-wing violence... I’m not saying that they are explicitly encouraging violence. Nor am I saying that you can’t find examples of liberals using hyperbolic, irresponsible words.

But what I am saying is this: there are some particular features of conservative political rhetoric today that help create an atmosphere in which violence and terrorism can germinate."

...versus what he says when a de Blasio-Sharpton inspired thug assassinates two cops:

"But when someone tosses off the accusation that an act of violence committed by one deranged person was a consequence of words someone else spoke, he or she should immediately be met with a couple of questions, the most important of which is: What, exactly, are you referring to?"


Washington Post's #PaulWaldman, left-wing political hack, hypocrite, or just intellectually retarded? You decide.

Grumpy Curmudgeon said...

@John the Econ: "...the people in these neighborhoods will remain poor, subjugated, and have miserable lives while remaining under the control of..." the Democratic Party who provides the welfare, food stamps (good at the ATM, strip club, liquor get the idea) nearest you, and don't forget the 'child welfare credit' (I don't need no birth control, I wants my gubbamint check), the 'earned income credit' (so get's more monies?); etc.

The proper media wonders why there is no black conversation about unemployment in all black age groups, destruction of the family...why get a job when you get more from welfare and food stamps, and the government gives you more money the more illegitimate children you have, so you can get more drugs and repeat the cycle (and forget about 'daddy' kicking in child support - most don't know who 'daddy' is).

Forgive my 'racist' rant...

John the Econ said...

@Grumpy, amen brother. The black "civil rights leadership" sold out for vittles and magic beans. Their subjects are now living on the plantation by choice. The upside is that they can walk away any time they like. Many have, and it's my prayer that most figure this out and follow.

Popular Front said...

In MY republic Sharpton, Jackson and Farrakhan would have entered the road accident statistics years ago. These three dopey dickheads fail to grasp the concept that they can disseminate their race-based hatreds because they are US citizens and freedom of expression is your Constitutional right (or wrong as the case may be).
Just about everywhere else in the world they would be running from a Lumumba-style outcome.

JustaJeepGuy said...

@John The Econ said: "Progressive politicians are more afraid of you than they are of the thugs." I have been saying the same thing for years.

It's why the "progressives" want to eliminate the right of decent citizens to keep and bear arms. They don't give a rat's a$$ about crime because they know the thugs will never try to overthrow the corrupt government, but that the decent citizens might soon get tired of the government--and actually take action, finally.
