Maybe she meant Neanderthals.
The news out of Baltimore is coming fast and furious, and pretty much all of it is enraging to anyone with an ounce of sanity. In other words, only conservatives and other racists.

We're now being told that Freddie Gray's autopsy results do not indicate that the police were to blame, but rather that his life-ending injuries were either self-inflicted or (possible but less likely) the secondary result of a seizure.

Which makes it all the more unacceptable that the mayor of Baltimore gave the violent rioters "space to destroy," and not only told the police to stand down and "let them loot," but also ordered the police not to wear items of protective riot gear which could cause "bad optics." Which is why some 100 officers were injured, property was destroyed, and buildings and stolen cars were set ablaze. Yeah, those are great optics, madam mayor.

Now we're being told that these terrorizing miscreants, who were acting with neither cause nor control, are all good kids who are just frustrated because, according to Barack Obama, we haven't nurtured them with enough federal money. And most importantly, they shouldn't be called "thugs" because it might be code for the dreaded n-word. 

Which, frankly, we consider to be an n-sult to our n-telligence.

UPDATE: the Baltimore cops in the Freddie Gray case are now being charged with murder, manslaughter, and myriad other offenses. None of the charges are related to actually inflicting injuries to Freddie Gray. Rather, the charges are based on the accusation that the police failed to secure Gray with a seat belt during transport, and failed to render timely medical aid after he had requested it.

Yes, she really said that. And yes, she's really scary.
Meanwhile, presidential hopeful (and wife of America's first all-white black president) Hillary Clinton has spoken out on the situation in Baltimore, delivering what she calls a "hard truth." And trust us, nobody has a harder time with the truth than she does.

Speaking at Columbia University, Mrs. Clinton screeched, "From Ferguson to Staten Island to Baltimore, the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable!"

Which is true, if the pattern you're talking about is jumping to false conclusions, blaming the police without knowing the facts, improper and inflammatory comments from the White House and other high officials, allowing violent destruction of property, and - speaking of racism - absolving the rioters and looters of wrongdoing under the assumption that some people (wink-wink nudge-nudge) just don't have the intellect or self-control to be held to traditional standards of morality or responsibility.

There is clearly more to this story than meets the eye. Events seem too orchestrated and too illogical, and the primary political players involved are a little too close and a little too close-mouthed. We can't put our finger on it but, in Hillary's words, it seems that "the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable" that those on the Left are deliberately stoking what they hope will become a race war.


Liberals are struggling to explain why hoards of "good kids" in Baltimore suddenly decided to burn, pillage, and loot. Hope n' Change thinks the following video sums it up pretty accurately...


As usual, our own Lefty Lucy can be counted on to eloquently summarize the whole Freddie Gray, Baltimore riots situation from a progressive viewpoint. (Click link for her cartoon)

My question for Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake the mayor of Baltimore “Did you go to College to get this stupid or were you born that way” It’s stupid of her to order her officers to “stand down” and let the thugs have the space and not wear protective gear. I hope some of those 100 injured cops sue her pants off.

The only thing that is unmistakable and undeniable is Hillary Clintons criminal conduct throughout her career. The only reason she’s not going to jail is because of the democratic owned Department of Justice. Makes me sick! Congress needs to find a way to make the Justice department non-political.

Enough of the blacks attitude that they are “victims and they are entitled, after all they lack education and jobs.” When it was they who failed to accept the education that was provided to them. A person only need to apply themselves in this county. There are many opportunities were you can get an education and job training most of it free or at least inexpensive. Just take a little self-responsibility. When I needed a job I would take almost anything legal that I thought I could do.

Reminds of a conversation with my boss. I said: “Hey boss can I have a brake?” Boss said: “ You got your brake when I gave you this job!” I said: “Yeah, but when you gave me this job, you didn’t tell me that I would actually have to work.”
That’s the attitude I see in many of our youth these days. And by the way, even in my poorest days, I never would have thought about stealing toilet paper! Must be “the Man’s fault” that there is a paper shortage.

Baltimore - the Musical -Two thumbs up. Must see, The acting superb.

Geoff King said...

I am really annoyed with the term "the N-word". The origin of of the word " Nigger"
(1640-50; < French nègre < Spanish negro from the Latin niger) simply means black and is the same base word that the country of Nigeria was named for. Granted, it has been used as a slur, but so has every other racial term such as "Whitie".
If political correctness demands that we must not label anyone by their race or origin, I am now offended to be called an American as I have no Italian blood in me and therefore am not related to Amerigo Vespucci.

Geoff King said...

BTW. To set the record straight and to be totally politically incorrect, the first slave owner in what would become the United States was Anthony Johnson - a BLACK man who fought a court battle to make slavery legal. Also, all of the slave traders of the time were either Arabic or Black, so I am deeply offended at the notion that my White ancestors were the cause of the Black plight.

Wahoo said...

In my racist opinion, the N-competence in leadership we're witnessing today in Baltimore and other cities on Al Sharpton's itinerary is the predictable result of the Affirmative Action programs of the sixties to date.

TrickyRicky said...

@Geoff King-Excellent points, usually forgotten or ignored.

Fred Ciampi said...

The video is outstanding and if the situation wasn't so incredibly sad it would be real entertainment. I enjoyed it almost as much as the real West Side Story fifty bunch years ago. Who would have thought that when the original came out back then that it would be common occurrence today only hundreds of times worse? I truly believe in my heart of hearts that this administration is wanting to fabricate an all out race war. Perhaps a prelude to martial law?

So now we won't be able to buy any "Runnin' Thug" targets either? Damn. But that's OK; there's a lot of images available to cut out of magazines or print for do-it-yourselfers. Small picture > close range > small round > low cost practice. Remember to keep the incoming angle in mind for center mass.
We be nice but we be ready.

This can be Hillary and the Democrat’s “War on Poverty,” except that’s been used before so we will call it the “War on Everything but the Rioters.” Every government agency except law enforcement will be mobilized. For example, when NASA is not too busy boosting Muslim self-esteem, it can discover new space for the protestors to destroy.

In days long past, I thought 'thugs' were white Italians!

Then it that term began to be owned by pro baseball NFL and NBA.

Now the officially, (really high officials!), sanctioned NBP are handling their underlings, the yute-thugs, and raising the bar!

Why am I not laughing?

I don't want to sign anonymous, but...

@Joseph- Your remarks about Ms. Rawlings-Blake are spot on.

Spanish does it this way.

¿Qué? What?
¿Estúpido? Stupid.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Joseph ET- Last night, I watched mayor Rawlings-Blake in a news conference posed in front of a "No Justice, No Peace" backdrop - promising "justice for Freddy Gray" thanks to "three black women." Presumably herself, Loretta Lynch, and Valerie Jarrett.

She has made this all about race, and more or less suggested that violence is the answer. I don't think she's stupid (she is, by the way, the #3 person in the DNC). I think she's evil and ambitious.

Regarding Hillary, I found it both laughable and despicable that she's trying to tie Baltimore into her populist campaign to restore trust in Big Effing Government. As you say, she's a criminal.

Finally, there is a cancer in the black culture of our country, and it desperately needs fixing. Step one will be removing the carcinogenic influence of the Democrats.

@REM1875- We only thought the locals were rioting; actually it was street theater!

@Geoff King- I'm perfectly happy to declare the n-word off limits (although black folks should have the same restriction), but I can't stand the idiocy of saying that other words - like "thug" - are code words that are just as bad.

And you're right about the nature of slave trade. There's plenty of blame to spread around all races.

@Fred Ciampi- The "Officer Krupke" song was recorded in 1957. The "explanations" are the same, the situations have only gotten worse, and taxpayers are a few trillion dollars the worse for wear.

And I, too, worry that the reaction to these allegedly racial incidents are being deliberately orchestrated for a larger endgame.

@Anonymous- I would hope that a lot of folks in Baltimore (most certainly including the black citizenry) are thinking the same thing.

@Cat Whisperer- I love your NASA remark. I just might have to borrow that for a cartoon...

@Anonymous- Actually, I believe "thug" is derived from "Thuggee" - a member of a murderous cult which rampaged in India for 600 years. No doubt because they didn't have strong fathers in their lives.

@Boligat- Considering Barry's immigration policies, brushing up on our Spanish seems like a good idea...

I lived in Baltimore in 1978 and 79, right down town, and about 6 blocks from North Avenue where this all started. Sad to see that nothing has really changed in Baltimore, because the majority population that lived downtown mainly had the same thug mentality then that they do now.

American Cowboy said...

@ Geoff King & TrickyRicky

Both of you are of course right.
However, IMO the points made by Geoff are mostly ignored, not forgotten.
To forget them would absolve the left of responsibility for foisting their PC agenda on the rest of America. To ignore would fit the PC agenda of racial division much better.

John the Econ said...

Once again, out of the park @Stilton. But then again, with the morally bankrupt left continually serving up such softballs, I now expect nothing less.

Don't stress the autopsy results. They'll either riot because they'll believe it's a conspiracy, or they'll just ignore it like they ignored the facts behind Trayvon and Micheal. Never let the facts get in the way of a good narrative, or an excuse to riot.

Wanna talk about "great optics"? How about a city run exclusively by Progressive Democrats going up in flames ignited by Progressive Democrats? It's tough to spin that any other way outside of the enslaved and zombie circles.

And yet they'll blame it on the GOP for not throwing in a few more billion for midnight basketball.

Sorry Democrats. You bred this. You own it.

Planet Hillary. If I was a Koch brother, I'd be writing Stilton checks to be working on Lefty Lucy and a new series, Planet Hillary full-time. We'll just need the artwork, because these characters literally write themselves.

"...the patterns have become unmistakable and undeniable." If there's one person in politics today who shouldn't say something like that, it's Hillary.

The other day, Hillary lamented that even though crime overall is down, the prisons are full and that urgently needs to be corrected. That's Progressive logic for you. Low crime and full prisons is, in fact, a crisis!

She also stomped for body cameras. Ooooh. Way to stake a bold position, Hillary.

Speaking of "educated" women, this came up the other day:

Woman charged with threatening police has legal degree

A woman with a masters degree in "legal studies" was arrested for the dissemination of information to facilitate terroristic threats after she posted on Facebook.

"All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW. I condone black on white killings. Hell they condone crimes against us. I've thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I'm either caught by the police or killed by them. Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I'm plotting now. They reading this sh** too right now. Freedom of speech tho. So when you can absolutely show me the 1st amendment where it explicitly says you can't say "kill all cops," then I'll delete my status. Other than that...NOPE! Death to all white cops nationwide."

I don't know where she got her master's degree, but after her criminal case is done, I suggest she then sue that university to get her money back. She clearly didn't get even a high school level education, and certainly didn't deserve a diploma in "legal studies" if she can't understand what she did was illegal.

Sorry hon. Al Sharpton can get away with that shtick, but you can't. Maybe after you run up a few million in unpaid taxes, you'll get more respect.

Also, I'd like to know the school responsible for her "advanced" education so that I can properly discount the value diplomas issued from that institution the next time a resume floats across my desk.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous (Baltimore)- It is sad. But then, how could there be much improvement considering the Democratic governance which has been suffocating the city?

@American Cowboy- I think liberals practice something I call "kinetic forgetting." Unacceptable truths are forcibly rejected from their consciousness.

@John the Econ- The breaking news about the harsh (second degree murder? Really?) charges against the cops in the Freddie Gray case show that autopsy results really are going to be secondary to the political chicanery.

I think the goal may well be the federalization of the nation's police force, which Al Sharpton hinted at.

I've never forgotten Obama's call (as a candidate) for a "civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded (as our military)."

Regarding the Koch brothers, I wish they would cut me some checks to keep the cartoons coming! I'm actually sitting on a Lefty Lucy cartoon about Hillary that was ready to run before Baltimore blew up. It will get posted one of these days...

I have to laugh at Hillary's confusion about why prisons are full when crime is down. I guess she's not as good at recognizing "cause and effect" as she is at foreign policy or computer server maintenance.

Finally, I'm glad that the woman calling for the death of white cops was arrested. And I hope that she'll get some quality time in the hoosegow to bone up on her understanding of the Constitution.

Stilton I'm just so angry at that Baltimore mayor I just have to use the N-word. She is a NUTSO!!

It's obvious and should be shared that Freddie Gray had a SLEAZURE! We now know that sleazures are contagious, because it spread around Baltimoron.

"Thug" is the sound my man junk makes when it hits the water as I climb into a warm bath!

Anonymous said...

Tsk tsk. She doesn't want to call them thugs. They're more like "colleagues", "co-workers", or "community organizers". You know, people she works with on a regular basis.

After all, the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree, but you can carry acorns all around and plant them anywhere. Sanford, Ferguson, Baltimogadishu, Chicago, Washington D.C.

As a Responsible Leader, the mayor needs to save her invective and name calling for people who just want to be left in peace to live their lives. We call those people extremist, separatist, anarchist, home grown domestic terrorist waaaaaaaaaaciiiiissssssssssts.

Another very important issue at hand is BO's presidential are a few suggestions...

A large area devoted to the school transcripts of little Barry Soetoro, marked off limits.

A book section featuring a copy of Dreams From My Father signed by its author Bill Ayers. The copy will include the original dust cover with its bio info about Barack Hussein Obama being born in Kenya.

A blank page entitled articles written by the esteemed Law Review editor BHO.

A bronzed teleprompter with a with a quote from Barack "I owe my entire political career to you."

Chris Matthew's embalmed leg with a bolt of electricity going from toe to crotch with Barack's acceptance speech playing in the background.

A picture of a graveyard in Chicago with an appropriate tribute from BHO thanking the residents for their undying support in all of his electoral forays.

A recording of the Muslim evening call to prayers will serve as background music with Barack intoning about how its the sweetest sound he ever heard.

A laugh track featuring BHO yucking it up after showing the 30 plus times Barack told people "If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance."

Yeh, that should work! HAPPY NAKED GARDENING DAY!
