Black Conservative Snidely Whiplash Repeats White Supremacist in Rant

For those of you who may be too young to remember an animated series on the “Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” show called ” Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties“, the principal villain in the show was “Snidely Whiplash” best known for tying innocent vixen Nell to the railroad tracks to be run over.

Never ones to stray from character, or be particularly inventive, we have the black Snidely – Peter Kirsanow, who was the right’s Lawn Jockey on the “U.S. Commission on Civil Rights” to support the racist groups under the Bushit Administration. So no surprise the black Snidely is quoting white supremacists, such a Jonah Goldberg of the racist infested National Review.

Civil Rights Official Cited By Scalia Dismisses Black Lives Matter Protesters As ‘Precious Little Flowers’

When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Wednesday suggested that black college students should choose a “less-advanced” or “slower-track” institution, he referenced a brief filed by lawyers Gail Heriot and Peter Kirsanow, two opponents of affirmative action who say that the policy discourages black students from studying science and engineering.

It turns out that Kirsanow, who is black, is also not a fan of minority students protesting institutionalized racism, as he noted while discussing the Fisher case Monday on a panel at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Responding to an audience question about the Black Lives Matter movement and students “browbeating” for reforms on college campuses, he questioned the existence of institutionalized racism in education and dismissed the Black Lives Matter protesters as “precious little flowers.”

“They are these precious little flowers that believe they’ve been discriminated against, 50 years after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,” he said. “It is incredible what we’re countenancing here.”

Calling institutionalized racism “a feeling,” he later added: “I keep hearing about white privilege. The most privileged students in schools in 2015 America are Hispanic and black students by far.”

Both Heriot and Kirsanow serve on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and were appointed by President George W. Bush.

During the court’s oral arguments on Fisher vs. University of Texas at Austin, an affirmative action case in which the plaintiff, Abigail Fisher, claims she was rejectedfrom the University of Texas at Austin in part because she is white, Scalia suggested that black students should not receive preference because they fare poorly at elite schools. He drew from several briefs filed in favor of Fisher and arguing against affirmative action, including Heriot and Kirsanow’s brief, which cites data to claim that fewer black students pursue science and engineering fields when admitted through racial preferences, and that black students in these fields do not come from prestigious research universities.

“One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas,” Scalia said. “They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them.”

Scalia then argued that because of that, schools like the University of Texas “ought to have fewer” black students.

“I don’t think it stands to reason that it’s a good thing for the University of Texas to admit as many blacks as possible,” he said.

On the panel, Kirsanow also discussed the “mismatch” theory, proposed by UCLA law professor Richard Sander, whose brief Scalia also cited on Wednesday. It claims that minority students admitted to elite universities under affirmative action find classes too rigorous and eventually have to drop out. That theory has been widely debunked.

Further, while it is true that the majority of Black graduates in the STEM curricula graduate from HBCU’s – the majority of those gradates who do matriculate to the Masters and Phd levels from non-HBCUs, and a  portion finish their PHd’s at elite universities. Unfortunately there are few African-American STEM graduates.

Another Lawn Jockey of the Month award for Snidely…

Mr. President – Time to Flush This Toilet

The US Commission on Civil Rights became  complete farce during the Bushit Administration, just as the Justice Department’s Division on Civil Rights became polluted and dysfunctional through ideologically racist Republican hires. While we can hope Attorney General Holder is ultimately successful in cleaning out the ideological debris, and returning the Justice Department to an organization which actually has something to do with it’s charter to protect all Americans (and there is some evidence of this). However, there is also plenty of evidence that Republicans will do almost anything to prevent those efforts in blocking a number of President Obama’s nominations, including that of  Dawn E. Johnsen to head the Justice Department’s  Office of Legal Counsel. However, as part of the effort to clean up the maisma left by the previous administration…

The US Civil Rights Commission needs more direct action.

Under the precedent set by the Bushit Administration, that can be accomplished by the simple expedient of removing two or more of the Appointees, including naming a new Chair.

Case in point is this letter from the Commission.

Two arguments are being advanced in this letter – both are duplicitous.

There are several issues which the Bill is trying to address. The first is Health Care disparities, in terms of lack of Health Care professionals in low income areas which include Rural and Urban environments. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, over 20 percent of the U.S. population lives in rural areas, yet they are served by only nine percent of the nation’s physicians.

The second, is something I’ve discussed here numerous times is the racial disparity in Health Care, in terms of treatments received by patients of different races. A recent study by the Mt. Sanai Urban Health Institute in Chicago concluded

There’s a stark, human cost in that: In all, the researchers estimated that the toll of the black-white health disparity is an additional 3,200 deaths of African Americans in Chicago every year.

Indeed, the study – Researchers reported that the African-American death rate from breast cancer was 99 percent higher in Chicago than for white women, a fivefold increase since 1990.

Two provisions in HR 3590 and HR 3200, the Affordable Health Care Act seek to address these issues through contracting with Schools and Universities to produce more Health Care personnel from, and serving these communities – including rural communities.

So why exactly do the Republican appointees oppose the legislation?

Because statistically it will result in the training of more minority Health Care personnel – and it might be a step towards stopping medical genocide of minorities in the US.

Now, as usual when there is racial dirty work to be done, cover is provided by one or more of the captive Uncle Toms on the right. ..

President George W. Bush designated Gerald A. Reynolds to serve as Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on December 6, 2004.

Peter N. Kirsanow (AKA Snidely Whiplash) received a recess appointment from President George W. Bush on January 4, 2006.

In this case two appointments by the Bushit – Reynolds and Kirsanow…

Both of whom signed the above letter.

In view that neither of these individuals has offered the least idea of how to address the problems inherent in the current system – the only thing I can do is to make a brutal comparison…

The temptation is to compare these two to the Jews who tossed other Jews into the ovens at Auschwitz. That’s not a fair comparison – to those Jews who chose to serve the Nazis. It’s impossible to say who will, or won’t make an accommodation with the Devil with a gun pointed at their heads. Reynolds and Kirsanow don’t have guns pointed at their heads – so their full acquiescence and support of genocide comes from a much deeper trough of degeneracy, devoid of exigency or moral principle.

Buckdance on down and get your “Lawn Jockey of the Year”, awards boys.
