UPDATE: The best thing I've seen on Jena 6 is here: http://www.kansascity.com/sports/columnists/jason_whitlock/story/284511.html
As if things weren’t wacky enough:
This from the AP:
Some Oregon high schools are adopting Mexico's public school curriculum to help educate Spanish-speaking students with textbooks, an online Web site, DVDs and CDs provided free by Mexico to teach math, science and even U.S. history.
OK, math and science are pretty universal, but US history.? I’m sure we’ll all see Polk’s war of aggression against Mexico the same way as La Raza. The only good thing about this is that given the public schools’ inability to teach anything, this program will only ensure bi-lingual illiterate dumb a$#es.
This from the NY Daily news:
Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack went off on Rudy Giuliani's family foibles in a televised interview, saying Giuliani has "lots of issues" voters may not know about - yet.
"I can't even get into the number of marriages, [and] the relationship he has with his children," Vilsack said on New York 1, describing the ex-mayor's past as "interesting."
Vilsack is a campaign co-chair for the Shrill one. What most pols wouldn’t say but Rudy might is:
Yeah, I’ve had a lot of personal tragedy in my life, some brought on by my own short comings, and I might have more. I’d certainly have more personal trouble if I were married to some disbarred, impeached, narcissistic odd ball accused of rape, sexual assault, a serial philanderer, having sex in a very public way at work. Yeah, I’d probably divorce that person and have to listen to a know-nothing like Vilsack talk about that instead of an unworkable 110 billion dollar social health care plan. I can tell you one thing, I wouldn’t stick around acting as an enabler to further my own political ambitions in that situation.
Then there’s the Jena six:
Six black youths are accused of beating a white student in Jena LA. The six were brought up on attempted murder charges. One was convicted and sent to jail. Since then the LA appeals court has corrected what appears to be prosecutorial overreach – you know like the Duke rape case. Well once the miscarriage has been corrected is the perfect time Revs Al & Jesse to bus in a bunch of rent-a-mob protesters.
The media would have you believe that the beating was in response to three nooses hung from a tree by whites to intimidate blacks. Sounds good except that the beating took place four months after the nooses were hung. The MSM also think that the noose deal was a hate crime that the prosecutor failed to address appropriately even though is was handled by the school with suspensions. If the boys hung nooses with effigies of Bush and Cheney in the tree and were suspended from school, the same professional protesters would have showed up claiming an infringement on the boys’ First Amendment rights.
But OK fine, the noose boys should have been arrested and fined. But how is a non-violent prank, arguably covered under the First Amendment, a hate crime while six blacks beating a white kid unconscious not? Hey lucky thing the white kids weren’t protesting “white Jew interlopers” like Rev Al at Freddy’s Fashion Mart. Or talking about "Hymie Town" like Rev Jesse. Whooo, that would really be hateful.
Were the shoe on the other foot, with six whites beating a black youth, Revs Al & Jesse and their rent-a-mob would be demanding the death penalty. Al & Jesse are nothing more than race baiting hypocrites, charlatans, opportunists and creeps.
