Headline Potpourri #40

Police assure that the beating death of 88 year old Delbert Bolton had nothing whatsoever to do with race. And this makes Delbert Bolton any less dead how? To justify the lavish salaries and expense accounts of consultant diversitymongers, it is constantly pounded into our heads about institutional racism. This is the perceptual malady where we could be holding to prejudiced and biased assumptions and not even realize it. I guess these scumbags singled out an elderly white man thinking he would be able to put up a fair fight. Maybe they had such respect for the elderly that they could not bear the thought of the targeted individual enduring the deprivations of the Obama healthcare plan to be inflicted upon the chronologically advanced in the years to come. So the duo must have decided to bestow the gift and blessing of an unsolicited mercy killing.

Law enforcement is insisting that 88 year old Dilbert Belton was killed by a Trayvonite duo because he dared to resist. So if a criminal starts to beat a police officer, why isn't the police officer required to buck up and endure the licks?

The statist deadbeats and racial collectivists gathering in the nation's capital to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech have no more intention of judging someone by the content of their character rather than the color of skin than the average Klansman.

Martin Luther King. Jr. was not the flawless individual he is made out to be by certain segments of the American population. A number of his associations, life choices, and professed beliefs were at times highly questionable. However, to graft together the countenances of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Trayvon Martin into a single image plastered on a t-shirt as if they are of equal stature is a step too far. In his brief 39 years, Martin Luther King earned a Bachelor of Art in Sociology, a Bachelor of Divinity, and a PhD in Systematic Theology while also pastoring a church and composing numerous rhetorical works. Though academic achievement is not necessarily a determining measure of individual character, Trayvon Martin wasn’t even able to keep his nose clean enough to prevent from being kicked out of high school.

Why does O’Reilly deem it necessary to constantly remind that the pederast-sympathizing judge that let a pedophile off the hook with a 30 day jail sentence is the grandson of some football player? Unless they are in the Sandusky family tree, does it have any bearing on the case?

A New Republic cover story points out that the public school system has failed non-conformist children. Does that mean students bored out of their wits because they possess a greater intellectual acuity than what the pedagogy is aimed at? Or is this code for urchins that need a swift smack on the backside because they aren’t going to listen to anyone telling them to sit still?

Headline reads that the swimmer that swam from Florida to Cuba vomited constantly. So do some with gallbladder disease, but you don't see them getting a media pity party. No one forced her to swim there. Is not like she was fleeing Castro's dictatorship. And why was she allowed to do this when the average American cannot travel to that island via more modernized modes of transportation?

The cover of the 9/15/2013 issue of Commonweal consisted of a quote from an article in the edition laying out a “Catholic” argument in favor of same sex marriage. The quote is as follows: “Same sex marriage advocates don't just have better public relations than their opponents. The have better logic, given the premises available to their culture.” From that perspective, on what grounds does one then condemn the actions of the Nazis? For their time, their knack for social manipulation was second to none. And to oppose their atrocities, does not one have to appeal to premises transcending those accepted by a society and culture with National Socialism as its foundation.
