The Chumph Goes Full on Racist at Code Talkers Award

The Chumph had an award ceremony for the Navajo Code Talkers who contributed greatly to our WWII efforts against the Japanese. Lesser known are the Choctaw and Cherokee Native Americans who pioneered the method in WWI.

In the background of this ceremony hung a picture of Andrew Jackson. Andrew Jackson  was responsible for Native American Genocide in the South and West , and was originator of the “Trail of Tears” forced relocation/mass murder of Native Americans from the South.

How the World Sees America’s Racial Issues

For the last two nights demonstrators have taken to the streets of Ferguson, Missouri on the 1 year anniversary of Mike Brown’s Murder.

This is what British Reporters saw, and what was on British News.

British reporter in Ferguson finds whites openly carrying rifles and peaceful blacks being arrested

Kylie Morris of Channel 4 in Britain visited Ferguson on Tuesday and tried to explain to the British people why white “Oath Keepers” were allowed to openly carry firearms on the street while peaceful black protesters were arrested.

“The men, calling themselves Oath Keepers, only added to the already simmering tensions,” a Channel 4 anchor noted before tossing to Morris for a live report from Ferguson.

Morris told her British audience that the commemoration of the one year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death had been interrupted by armed Oath Keepers, who claimed that they were there to protect businesses and conservative journalists.

“But certainly their presence, their state of wearing uniforms, military-type uniforms — some of them are ex-military, some of them are even serving police, we’re told,” she reported. “They were, you know, carrying weapons.”

Morris noted that black protesters faced pepper spray, arrests and other actions by riot police.

The Oath Keepers, however, “openly carry sidearms and semi-automatic weapons as is their right,” she said.

“You and people who look like you, white males, have the sovereignty to walk around with assault rifles,” one black protesters told a white Oath Keeper, “But we [black protesters] can’t even like stand out here and assemble peacefully and exercise our constitutional right to do so without being gassed, maced and arrested.”

“I don’t have a perspective,” the Oath Keeper replied flatly.

Morris said that she had a hard time understanding why police would arrest otherwise peaceful protesters.

“It’s hard to know how this keeps the peace, putting civil rights leaders in handcuffs, including the prominent philosopher Cornel West and Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson during a peaceful sit-in outside the federal court,” she remarked.

During an interview with Mckesson, she asked if the police appeared to be taking retribution on the protesters for all of the negative attention the Black Lives Matter movement had brought to the area.

“There is a long history of law enforcement targeting people who are fighting for their rights,” Mckesson told Morris. “The reality is that the status quo didn’t just happen overnight, the status quo [developed] over many years and people work hard to reinforce it, including the police.”

Morris noted that there was a “right-wing push back” against the Black Live Matter movement, which she said “feels more and more vociferous every day.”

“There are people whose bread and butter is sustaining racist oppressive systems like for-profit prisons,” Mckesson said. “The right’s response to us is a sign the movement is working.”

As for the Oathkeepers, Mckesson said that they were a reminder that law enforcement in Ferguson “police based on race.”

“If black people had come out with rifles like that, it would have been sheer pandemonium outside,” he added. “But white people, there was no response by the police. They left, they didn’t return.”

“And that’s real. Policing is racially coded in places like Missouri and places all over the country.”

The Thrilla in Vanilla – AKA the Republican Debate

If I was President Obama, right about now I’d be licking my chops in anticipation of a debate with any of the 9 Republican midgets. The only way any of these guys could surive a serious debate with anyone with critical thinking skills over room temperature is th have the debate on Faux News with the opponents mike turned off.

Best (worst) of the night?

The Perry Whopper about how “dangerous” El Paso is because of it’s proximity to the border…

Problem – El Paso is ranked nationally as one of the 4 safest big cities in the United States.

El Paso Ranks Safest City In US

 

You go a few miles across the border into El Paso’s sister city in Mexico, Juarez – different story. But this clown is supposed to be the Governor of Texas?

Next – When did dead people get to join the debate?

I mean – Neut’s campaign has been DOA for 3 months now – WTF is he still doing there?

They tried their best to raise Reagan – but apparently even Republican spin-doctors and necromancers aren’t up to that task. Much as I disliked the Raygun – there wern’t any Reagan’s on that stage other than perhaps Huntsman.

Cain’s still there because they need a signifying Lawn Ornament Kneegrow – but nobody considers his buckdance a real candidacy. Noticed on the MSNBC interview after the debate, Herman is scared shitless of Al Sharpton.

On the soon to be politically dead list – Michelle Bachmann

Doin’ the “Neut”tron Dance… Indeed. Perry done stole her thunder.

Watching Perry lose Florida…

A large retired population, indeed – who don’t want their Social Security checks to disappear. Ponzi-Perry your dumb ass just lost near 25% of the votes you need to win the electoral college.
