Fixing Stupid - Is It Possible?
In the past couple of months the citizens of this nation have been made aware of just how far we have yet to go when it comes to fixing stupid. We are, of course, speaking about the racial grievance industry that seems to be alive and well in this country despite the election of a President they claimed would immediately plunge us into a “post racial” era of love and harmony. We all knew that was a bullshit claim and it did not take long for the truth to surface. Right from the start anyone who criticized the “post racial President” was immediately and vociferously branded a racist. Blacks who criticize him are branded “Uncle Toms” or “house niggers” by the supporters of a President whose only qualification for greatness seems to be the color of his skin. If you havenâ€™t received an education in the past six years regarding which segment of society is hellbent on making race a factor in absolutely every aspect of American life you havenâ€™t been paying close enough attention.
This segment of society chooses to remain uninformed and accept everything spoon-fed to them by those who profit from keeping them in the low information status they seem to accept so readily. Groups like the NAACP, who ceased actually advocating for colored people many years ago, and race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. None of the low information crowd ever seemed to care that Sharpton perpetrated a fraud in the Tawana Brawley case to line his own pocket. The low information folks either donâ€™t know or donâ€™t care that Jesse Jackson used his brother Noah and a Chicago gang known as the Black P Stone Rangers to intimidate business owners and extort them.
All the low information types know is that Sharpton and Jackson could shake down corporations with false claims of racism and those corporations would cough up money to make them go away. The low information crowd thinks that is great. How awesome is it that Al and Jesse can get bundles of cash from those evil white business folks? What the stupid failed to realize was that Al and Jesse werenâ€™t giving them any of that money. No, sir. They were living high on the hog, though, using those funds to live lives of luxury and support various and sundry baby mommas via the use of shell companies and alleged “civil rights” coalitions like Rainbow-PUSH.
The low information crowd is too stupid to realize that poverty pimps Sharpton and Jackson have actually caused them a ton of grief with their constant claims of racism even when racism was not present. Citizens now tend to discount those claims because they are made so frequently. The actions of this group of race hustlers have made it very difficult for those with real race-based claims to get any traction. In addition to this, the low information crowd who constantly accuse whitey of keeping them down, fail to see their true oppressors are the groups who claim to speak for them. Sharpton, Jackson and the NAACP all know that keeping the low information folks uninformed is the best way to generate cash flow. Unfortunately, those are the very same people who have the least to give because they have been trained by the racial grievance industry to believe they are not responsible for, and have no control over, their own lives. Thus the moniker “poverty pimps” and the lust to drum up accusations of racism in an effort to snatch the golden ring known as the ghetto lottery.
In some respects the racial grievance business model is finally on the decline. Now the pendulum is swinging the other way thanks to the advent of social media and alternative news sources. With the exception of the low information crowd and those liberals inculcated with the mantra that everyone with a skin color other than black is inherently racist - even them - a large segment of the population now seeks to discover the truth on their own rather than just accepting what the liberal controlled media tells them.
We thought we saw a glimmer of hope for the low information crowd this past week when Jackson was booed off the stage while begging for money in Ferguson, Missouri and Sharpton was hammered for his recently discovered history as an FBI informant so he could keep his own butt out of prison. That brief flicker faded rather quickly, though.
Unless you have been off spelunking in a cenote or conducting a survey of glaciers in Alaska you are probably familiar with the shooting of a black thug by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. News of the shooting was immediately spread across the country by the liberal media because “witnesses” claimed 18 year old Michael Brown had his hands in the air when he was shot in the back over eleventyhundred times by an evil white police officer. Liberal politicians, ranging from council members to mayors to the Governor of Missouri to the President of the United States jumped on the bandwagon to crucify the police before any of the real facts were known. The President even sent his resident racist in charge of the Department of Justice to interfere. We here at CTL chose to delay commenting on the issue until more facts were known.
You see, we had just spent considerable time commenting on a similar case in our hometown of Charleston, SC where the race hustlers immediately jumped into the fray without having all the facts. Without having any facts, actually. The witnesses in the Denzell Curnell case also claimed he was shot eleventyhundred times in the back by an evil police officer and was on his knees with his hands in the air when it happened. The local chapter of the NAACP immediately jumped at the chance to get out into the community, crucify the police and beg for donations. Logical citizens couldnâ€™t help but wonder why these people are never seen in ourÂ community while young black men are killing other young black men and their mothers.
Someone tipped the NAACP there might be more to the Charleston story than the witnesses were claiming and they disappeared for a bit. As it turns out Curnell was skulking around in the rear of buildings in a high crime/high violence public housing project, was wearing dark clothing, to include a hoodie, and was armed with an unlawfully concealed revolver and ammunition, both of which he had stolen from his step-father. After struggling with the police officer who was attempting to make contact with him, Curnell pulled out his revolver and shot himself in the head. The officer involved in this incident is well-respected and just happens to be black. That threw the NAACP for a loop and they had to come up with a new plan of attack. It didnâ€™t take them long. Money is a powerful motivator.
A subsequent investigation by the State Law Enforcement Division cleared the officer and pointed out the dangers that arise when a housing project uses the low bidder for their video security system. This particular system is motion activated and it apparently takes the detection of a considerable level of motion to start recording. The actual moment when Curnell injected the lead into his own head was not captured on the video, not that the low level of detail would have provided any new insights.
As a result the race hustlers charged back in to try saving face and hung their hats on two things.
First, the “missing” section of the video. Of course, the local media participated in perpetrating the falsehood of the “missing” video to imply a police cover-up. They never bothered to point out that in order for something to be “missing” it had to actually exist in the first place. Even today they fail to acknowledge that little bit of reality.
The second point the race-baiters chose to focus on was the hoodie worn by Curnell in the middle of a Charleston summer and the officer saying it was one of several reasons he noticed Curnell and thought he should be checked out. The NAACP loved that. You see, even though the officer is also black he is nothing more than an expendable Uncle Tom, a race traitor for pinning on the badge. With the assistance of their friends in the media the NAACP claimed Curnell was racially profiled by the black officer because black people wear hoodies.
Pursuing their normal and well practiced plan of attack the NAACP and their media propagandists focused solely on the hoodie. Their reports led low information folks (their target audience) to think that hoodie was the only reason Curnell was approached. They failed to tell the public about the other facts present in this case that officers are trained to look for while on patrol, like behaving in a suspicious manner, hiding behind buildings, refusal to show hands, etc.
To this day the media refers to this case as the “Shooting Death of Denzell Curnell” rather than the more accurate “Suicide of Denzell Curnell”. As usual, the low information folks refuse to face facts. Curnellâ€™s own step-father, from whom the firearm was stolen, is constantly giving media interviews where he claims Curnell did not, could not, would not have killed himself. The fact that Curnell was placed on suicide watch before being mustered out of Army basic training does not matter. It is nothing more than inconvenient fact.
Here at Charleston Thug Life this refusal to acknowledge facts, to ignore facts, is nothing new. We see it all the time. When one of these instances occurs citizens are subjected to angry marches and demands for a “full investigation” (as if one wasnâ€™t going to be done until the marchers and their masters got out there) to determine the facts of these situations. When it turns out those facts donâ€™t support the version of events provided by “witnesses” or uphold the view of the indignant low information crowd, those facts are deemed “racist.” We decided to test this claim.
This morning we sat down and tried to talk with a Fact. The Fact was rude and failed to respond to our many questions. Instead, the Fact just sat there contentedly ignoring our inquiries while still managing to the convey the message, “I am a Fact and nothing you say can alter me. You may choose to ignore or discount what I tell you, but that just makes you an idiot. My power is greatly increased when I get together with others of my kind.” We repeatedly asked the Fact if it was racist. We tried cajoling the Fact. We tried finessing the Fact. We tried tricking the Fact and we even tried the “good cop - bad cop” routine to trip up the Fact and reveal deception. The Fact remained implacable. Nothing we did changed the Fact. The Fact is one tough nut to crack.
The rest of the nation is now seeing the same response from the low information crowd we see so frequently here at CTL. They and their masters in Ferguson are wildly contorting themselves in an effort to avoid the story told by the inexorable progression of facts.
For several days we were all exposed to the propaganda that Michael Brown had been shot in the back by an evil police officer for doing nothing more than walking down the street on his way to visit grandma before he went off to start a stellar college career. Most logical thinking folks realized immediately there was something more to the story. How? Well, we here at CTL are always accused of being disrespectful to dead thugs and their families when we expose their arrests and conviction records. Fortunately, the same crowd who accuses us of disrespect likes to put pictures and videos of their dead friends lying in the street all over the world wide web.
As you can see, the photos put the lie to the claim Brown was shot in the back eleventyhundred times as “witnesses” claimed.
And that pesky Fact just sat there and didnâ€™t say a word. And the low information folks were frustrated by it to no end.
We had to wait a few days for the police to release more details and were entertained during our wait by watching the low information folks loot and burn businesses in their neighborhood. We were then told the officer was assaulted by Michael Brown and a struggle for the officerâ€™s firearm occurred in his patrol vehicle. One shot was allegedly fired inside the vehicle.
Michael Brownâ€™s family, their attorney and the normal retinue of race hustlers raced to get in front of the cameras and tell us over and over what a “gentle giant” the 6â€™4″, 290 pound Brown was and how he would never, ever, under any circumstances assault anyone, much less a police officer. They seemed pretty confident pushing that story. That could be because they already knew the resident racist in charge of the Department of Justice had instructed the local cops to hide some evidence in the case.
You just canâ€™t please the race hustling crowd can you? First, they demand a full investigation and want to see all of the evidence. Then, when the police comply and disseminate some evidence that doesnâ€™t quite go along with the narrative being put forth in the press they get all pissy. Which is it, folks? Do you want a thorough investigation with all the facts revealed or do you want a half-assed investigation with some facts concealed?
We are speaking, of course, of the video of Michael Brown and his pal Dorian Johnson committing a strong arm robbery at a convenience store. Remember, Dorian Johnson is supposedly a critical witness in all of this and started the conflagration by claiming Brown was doing nothing more than holding his hands up (and probably singing a hymn) when he was shot. Brown, the gentle giant, stole a $50 box of Swisher Sweets cigars and assaulted a store clerk who tried to stop him. If you are not aware of what those cigars are used for, you can click HERE and find out.
Here is the “gentle giant” in action.
After almost a week of accusing police of racism and hiding evidence the low information folks and their poverty pimp handlers were highly upset when this video was released by the Ferguson police chief. They had already been promised by the DOJ the video would be squirreled away never to be seen by the public. What reaction did we see when the true nature of Michael Brown on that day was exposed? More threats of rioting and looting. The countryâ€™s top law enforcement official claimed he did not want the video released because it would result in criminals behaving criminally in Ferguson leading to more rioting and looting. Isnâ€™t it nice to know federal law enforcement wants to cater to criminals? Itâ€™s not like we didnâ€™t already know that. Have you seen whatâ€™s happening on our southern border lately?
So, what have we learned thus far? We have learned that acquiescing to the race hustlerâ€™s demands for a full investigation, with all facts revealed, doesnâ€™t include actually revealing all of the facts and if those facts are revealed it has to be because someone - maybe even the fact being revealed - is racist.
We were also treated to denials that the hulking criminal in that video was Michael Brown because the video was “very clearly blurry” and accusations the video was “Photoshopped”. Oh, and releasing that video of Brownâ€™s criminal behavior was disrespectful to his mommy. We knew that one was coming.
The Brown family attorney even called the release of the video an attempt at “character assassination” by authorities. He had nothing to say about the character assassination of the police officer and the police department he and his race-baiting cohorts had been engaged in for almost a week. That whole “content of character” thing from Martin Luther King is conveniently forgotten in these situations.
And that implacable Fact just sat there next to itâ€™s family members, unmoved by all of the writhing and the wailing and the gnashing of teeth.
Then we have another pesky Fact hidden in a video of the crime scene taken by a bystander. In that video you can hear a witness in the background giving his version of what he saw and, lo and behold, it matches almost exactly with what police are saying happened. Brown fought with the officer in his car and was then shot when he charged the officer again.
We wrote about the video and linked to a similar story on a website called the Conservative Treehouse. We believe they broke the story. We got quite a reaction on that one. One person commenting on our Facebook page discounted the entire video simply because the story was broken by a website with the word “conservative” in the name. How is that for low information logic? Others simply tried to say the video didnâ€™t show Brown charging at anyone because he was lying dead in the street and accused us all of being untruthful. Twisting and turning to avoid the facts. Nothing new. When we continued to point out the presence of that pesky Fact family, who now seemed to be ganging up on the race hustling, low information crowd we were met with this suggestion:
Yeah. “We donâ€™t like your pals the Fact family so you should just go away and shut up.” Another common tactic of the low information crowd and their plantation masters when the Fact family belies their narrative is to try to censor and shut down those who report the facts.
According to the police chief in Ferguson, the officer involved did not know about the convenience store robbery at the time he approached Brown. The race hustlers and low information folks jumped all over this fact and claimed it was proof the officer was racist and just decided to jump out of his car and shoot Brown to death because it was almost time for his lunch break and he hadnâ€™t shot a black man yet. They have quotas, ya know.
Too bad the facts donâ€™t support that. Michael Brown, who had just committed a strong arm robbery and assault a few minutes before might very well have believed the officer was there to arrest him for those offenses and decided to fight his way out of the situation. The fact that Brown fought with, and seriously injured the officer, remains unchanged by what the chief of police said.After all, how many people would actually resort to beating an officer who simply told them to get out of the roadway? Unfortunately, the last thing that went through Brownâ€™s mind was a piece of lead that succeeded in barring us from ever knowing the last thoughts might have had.
And that Fact just sits there, not even breathing hard, lined up beside all the other Facts.
Another member of the Fact family was recently revealed by hired gun forensic “expert” Dr. Michael Baden. He was hired by the Brown family to conduct an independent autopsy on Brownâ€™s body.
You folks who are old enough to remember the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson will know the name. He was a well respected forensic pathologist who began selling his services and his testimony to the highest bidder. He is the “expert” who testified for O.J. Simpson, then, when questioned by the media about his testimony claimed he hadnâ€™t said what he said on the stand. Baden also “testilied” for the defense in the murder trial of music mogul Phil Specter. But hey, his wife was Specterâ€™s defense attorney. What would you do to keep peace in the family? We wouldnâ€™t have hired someone with those sorts of questionable ethics, but the Brown family can do what they want while they have someone else paying the freight and looking for a big payout later.
Baden tells Fox News that Brown was shot six times, four times in the right arm, twice in the head, and one of those wounds was in the top of the head. Interesting. Every time a black thug is shot by police we are treated to statements like “He didnâ€™t deserve to die like that. They could have shot him in the leg or something.” Well, it seems this officer did just that by putting four rounds into Brownâ€™s right arm. Brown kept coming. The wound to the top of the head indicates Brown was likely still charging at the officer when he caught that one.
The race hustlers havenâ€™t quite figured out how to spin that fact yet. Donâ€™t worry, they will figure out something with the help of Dr. Baden. They are trying hard, though. They held a press conference this morning claiming those six wounds support the stories told by “witnesses”. Um, yeah, not so much. They hope you will concentrate solely on the number of rounds fired and forget all those other aspects of the “witness” statements where they claimed Brown was standing there with his hands in the air and other nonsense not supported by the Fact family.
Meanwhile the Fact family will silently continue with their reunion. We canâ€™t wait for the remaining family members to arrive and take their places.
Will that help fix stupid? Probably not. As our elders used to say, “Ignorance can be fixed, stupid is forever.”
