Breaking News! White People Can Be Terrorists! ಠ_ಠ [sigh]

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: And Barack Obama? Terror Tuesday commander of death-squad drone strikes from above? A terrorist? Damn right. Black? Well, half and half and raised by the white half, so draw your own conclusions.

There’s a meme developing right now where everyone seems to want to yell to the heavens that white people can be terrorists too. That’s how you prove how “progressive” and PC you are today.

Pardon me for mentioning this simple and obvious fact but… has no one paid any attention to us “conspiracy theorists” out here for the last 20 years or so? Are we talking to ourselves? Do you see what you miss if you simply ignore the facts and regurgitate dismissive marginalizing buzzwords like “conspiracy theorists”?

Because we’ve been trying to tell you about a whole boatload of white terrorists for decades… you just didn’t want to hear it. You were too busy getting high on your American exceptionalism to pay any attention.

Heck, one could say and say with authority, that if it weren’t for white terrorists, there would be no terrorists at all. Cus that’s a fact.

To quote Mr. Seagull, let’s begin with level flight.

Dear Journalists: Stop Reporting Unsubstantiated Hearsay Regarding Dylann Roof as Fact

by Scott Creighton

The Daily Kos, a leading “progressive” influence peddling website run by a guy who admits having received CIA training, ran with this headline:

Dylann Storm Roof told friends last week that ‘he was looking to kill a bunch of people’

No he didn’t or at least, we don’t know if that is true or isn’t. That’s a fucking fact. What they are reporting is something that was said by someone claiming he said that. In this case, it was a black “friend” of the guy wearing apartheid flags and sporting a confederate vanity plate on his car. How close do you think that friendship was?

Over at the Daily Beast, they are reporting that Dylann Roof wanted to start a civil war and do something for the “white race” and “had been planning something like this for 6 months”. This, according to the Beast, is what we KNOW about Dylann Roof.

That’s bullshit. What they are reporting is hearsay: what someone says he said, what they remember him saying weeks, months even years ago.

And don’t even get me started on Jon Stewart. He did his show last night and opened with a “serious” monologue where he opines over and over again that “nothing will be done” (meaning they wont wipe the 2nd amendment off the Bill of Rights) and al Qaeda and “ISIS” are NOTHING in comparison to white terrorists here in the states. Of course, he also regurgitates the same unsubstantiated hearsay as proof of Dylann’s guilt.

Ironically, he had LOVE MALALA on the show last night as well. For those of you who don’t know, she’s the Pakistani psyop girl who runs around pretending to have been shot at point blank range in the head with an AK-47 and all she has to show for it is a cute little one inch scar on her forehead.

Ladies and gentlemen of the media, this message is for you.

Please stop reporting hearsay as evidence in this case or any cases to come. It’s not evidence. It’s not admissible in court. It’s bullshit for any number of reasons.

I’m going to give you an example right now.

‘Turncoat Dems’ in House Blasted as Fast Track Fight Heads Back to Senate

by Deirdre Fulton, Common Dreams

Drawing the swift ire of progressives around the country, the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday took a step to revive President Barack Obama’s faltering corporate trade agenda, passing Fast Track, or Trade Promotion Authority, in a 218-208 vote.

Twenty-eight Democratic lawmakers voted in favor of Fast Track, which would make it easier for Obama to ram through controversial trade deals like the Trans Pacific Partnership, reducing the role of Congress to an up-or-down vote on such mammoth agreements.

“Thanks to House Republicans and a handful of turncoat Democrats, the army of corporate execs and industry lobbyists who wrote the job-killing Trans-Pacific Partnership will now have an easier time shoving it down the throats of an American public that’s broadly opposed to more NAFTA-style trade deals,” Democracy for America chair Jim Dean said after the vote. “While we will continue to work to defeat fast-track for the job-killing TPP in the U.S. Senate, we will never forget which House Democrats stood with American working families against Fast Track and who sold them out.”
