Liberals, Get Over It: Police Heroes. Dorner Scum!
The obese older Baltimore City cop, sweating profusely, was extremely winded after racing up the eight steps behind his thinner younger partner into my cousin's townhouse. They were responding to a 911call by my cousin's wife. She also called me to the scene. My cousin Ed, suffering with depression and a nervous breakdown, had his two toddler sons in the basement, threatening to kill the boys and himself. The young officer was pretty aggressive. Taking far too long to catch his breath, the veteran cop coached his partner to back off.
"Son, I know you are hurting really bad right now. But, you do not want to do this..." Remarkably, the wise old white cop talked my black cousin out of the basement, surrendering without violence. My cousin received the help he needed. This incident happened 40 years ago.
Thirty years ago, Mary and I were suddenly surrounded by police cars at a stop light in Baltimore County. A black/white couple had just robbed a bank in a car very similar to ours. Upon checking us out, the polite white officers apologized for the inconvenience and were on their way.
Am I saying that police brutality does not exist? Absolutely not. I am saying that I reject the lie that white cops relish opportunities to abuse and kill blacks.
I could not believe my ears when the president of the United States furthered this divisive myth when, without knowing the facts, he said the police acted stupidly in the Gates case. Obama attempted to justify his accusation by saying that everyone knows that police have a history of targeting minorities.
Evidence forced President Obama to backtrack with his famed Beer Summit. He invited black Professor Gates and the white decorated police officer that he had in essence accused of being a stupid scumbag racist to the White House to discuss their differences over beer.
Liberals always run to microphones to blame gun owners asleep in their homes, the Second Amendment (the Constitution), talk radio, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh every time some nutcase goes on a shooting rampage.
And yet, when one of their own, Chris Dorner, a black liberal evil deranged killer, goes on a shooting rampage, it is still the fault of gun owners asleep in their homes, the Second Amendment (the Constitution), talk radio, Sarah Palin, and Rush Limbaugh.
Liberals all over the internet are celebrating Dorner as a hero, a modern-day Django, serving up revenge for white police racism against blacks. Folks, this is the epitome of evil and extremely dangerous.
Unlike liberals, as a conservative, I believe individuals are solely responsible for their behavior. Thus, I blame Dorner's murderous orgy totally on Dorner rather than his liberal heroes. However, one has to wonder: does some culpability rest upon the left's image of America as being eternally racist, as illustrated in Obama's comments about white cops, Ice-T's song "Cop Killer," etc.?
Remember the recently under-reported black flash mobs across America?
Could they have been the result of racial polarization inspired and encouraged by the Obama administration? Obama and company declared the Tea Party and all opposition to his agenda as being racially motivated. Did anyone think impulsive black youths were not hearing and responding to such racially divisive rhetoric and sought to avenge their first black president rock star?
We are headed down a dangerous road, folks -- justifying, celebrating and even rewarding bad behavior.
I am sick of the idiotic, racist, and superior liberal point of view that blacks are entitled to have "issues" and be racist due to America's eternal racism against them. Unquestionably, liberals embraced Dorner first because he was on the same page politically as them and secondly because Dorner was black.
Chris Dorner was trash. Period. End of subject. Can you imagine anyone defending Hitler saying he killed people but made excellent points worthy of our consideration? And yet, such is the liberal response to Dorner.
"If you are young and not liberal, then you have no heart; but if you are old and not conservative, then you have no brain." -Churchill
In my youth, attending a liberal art college, I was liberal. Upon hearing the truth, the scales fell from my eyes, and I embraced the bright light of conservatism.
Someone said "Liberalism is a mental disease." I concur that true hardcore liberals are nuts who cannot be converted via reasoning. They simply must be defeated.
My heart and prayers go out to the families of the police officers murdered by Dorner. To the brave police officers who confronted Chris Dorner, ending his reign of terror, thank you.
