"Shithole Countries" Part II (VIDEO)

Image result for shithole countries

Before you start this piece, recognize a couple of important items. First, it is a piece developed via the use of many videos from CNN and MSNBC. If you are averse to our choice of construction on the piece, avoid the piece. We also offer a talking point alert: You will see an hearing consistent rationalizing of Trump's racist remarks shrouded in a pathetic "economic" argument. The very same argument offered up by some in media during the 2016 primaries and General Election campaign as Trump entertained millions across the nation who swelter in racism and hatred from the moment they awake through their late-night-viewing of Sean Hannity. 

Africa, Haiti and other “shithole countries.” Donald J. Trump, January 11, 2018

Africa, Haiti and other “shithole countries.”
“Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” Trump told a bipartisan group of senators in the Oval Office, according to CNN.
The president’s comment was made during a meeting with six senators hoping to come to a compromise on immigration.

After Sen. Dick Durbin proposed to end the visa lottery in exchange for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for countries like El Salvador, Trump reportedly interrupted him when Durbin got to Haiti.
Trump went on to ask why the US would want more people from Haiti and African countries, rather than countries like Norway. The president also asked if Haiti could be left out of the plan, reports the New York Times, “Why do we want people from Haiti here?”

Anderson Cooper on Haiti

Watch as a true American speaks about his first-hand knowledge and sentiment for the country of Haiti.

An all-out racist!

The segment of the night: Don Lemon's CNN Tonight, panel. Of course, we know the segments on CNN run a little long based on network management's broadcast model (panel point-counterpoint scraps), we simply must show the ridiculousness of Trump surrogates using talking points apparently developed in anticipation of reaction to Trump's racism and vulgar language. The comments from the surrogate were echoed on each cable network which ran minutes regarding Trump's racism.

CNN's Don Lemon devoted a full five-minutes addressing people who voted for Trump.  Video via the Raw Story.

Crooks & Liars published a piece regarding the mother of all panels from last night's cable news.

Before the Crooks & Liars piece take one minute of this ten-minute segment to view how racists promulgate their messaging. The first minute led to Don Lemon cutting the racist Trump surrogate out of the segment. He was brought back later in the segment. And, therein lies where Crooks & Liars picked up the video.

Christopher Jordan Dorner: "Hero", "Murderer", "Victim", "Nat Turner", Or Something Else?

These people were not LAPD management...

As the nation moves away from the case of a person who chose his own "way-out", allow a few words from one who suffers from a dichotomy over the last ten days.

Various forms of mental deterioration and a "shelf of murderers."

Aurora murderer
Sandy Hook murderer
I am unbiased in my view that Dorner "flipped" to a state of mind that touched into the irrational and mentally disturbed. He touched into the irrational because, he did not seem to be a permanent resident denizen of the insane as was the case of the Colorado theater murderer. Doner was a much different case of mental deterioration.   His actions appeared to resemble the acts the equally insane Sandy Hook murderer.  Yet, each exhibition of insanity were as different as day and night. No one kills five to six year old children. It just does not happen! 

I also do not place Dorner in the same 'mental' bag as Timothy Mcveigh and Terry Nichols (Oklahoma Bombing perpetrators).

Dorner shared one fact with Ted Kaczynski, Ph.D, the "Unabomber": A manifesto. Kadczynski and Dorner also appeared to have shared deep rooted and long developing mental deterioration with associated desire to harm other people.

Murderer, Maimer and Terrorist

Despite differences in the listed perpetrators, I place Dorner on that same shelf of shame: Murderers

Wayne LaPierre's (NRA) "The only way to deal
with a bad guy with a guy, is a good guy with a gun
" Really?

Murderers all and with varying degrees of mental deterioration.

Racsim alive and well! American Exceptionalism?

As a matter of introduction.

Charles M. Blow

Charles M. Blow

Charles M. Blow is an American journalist, and the current visual Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times.

Mr. Blow is an accomplished journalist who works for a top newspaper and internet publisher.  You may have seen him on cable news networks (other than Fox News). Or, you may have watched his commentary and investigative question related to the killer of young Trayvon Martin.

Charles Blow has released an email form an 'admirer'.  It is important to note, Mr. Blow is apparently guilty in the mind of the sick email writer for speaking the truth on issues. He did not kill anyone.

Maybe the following email message is from one of the people (to keep it clean) who have contributed to the George Zimmeramnn, "make him wealthy" campaign that eventually got his wife arrested for hiding the lying during his  first murder bond hearings.  You see it does not matter the Zimmerman killed a young man who was doing nothing but returning to a dwelling after purchasing Skittles and Ice Tea. What really matters? People who contribute to his 'get wealthy fund' only care about the 'red badge of courage' given to Zimmerman for shooting an innocent. He is an American 'Folk Hero"

American Exceptionalism!

The Dismantling of an Opportunist (VIDEO)

Issues that reach into that uncomfortable world of race relations are not well-read on this blog.  I can understand that dynamic as our history of slavery, race relations, and backlash against efforts to discuss or right the wrongs of the past is actually a no-win proposition for those who foray into the 'uncomfort' zone.

No one likes to re-hash, or even, remember a soiled past. Fewer relish the thought of reliving a past which might have included disdain for people unlike one's self, or contempt for people who are "the other". If we need a more overshadowing taboo, how about people who have grown away from taught bias, and prejudice of their parents or guardians? There-in lies factual foundation where all bias emanates and  is nourished.
