Unsung Black People

In December 1984, Bernie Goetz shot four black men who were trying to mug him on the New York City subway. (About a year later, one youth admitted that, yes, in fact, they \”were goin\’ to rob him.\” They thought he looked like \”easy bait.\”)

Ok, it’s almost 30 years latter and Ann Coulter brings up Bernie Goetz again. When I resolved myself of this issue it went something like this. The four black men may have been trying to mug him, but those were the people Goetz was looking for as he rode the subways looking for them.

It’s been so long ago that I am not sure I am correct in this assumption, but I don’t think anything more should be taken from the event Ann describes. I was worn out just reliving the event, even as little I know about it.

As for Zimmerman, it again seems to me like he found the person he was looking for in Trevor Martin, and that person put some hurt back on to him.

Did Trevor Martin represent to Zimmerman the culture of a black person or a poor person, or neither?

Apparently, justice wise it didn’t matter. The fact that Zimmerman felt threatened by any culture of any structure was enough to acquit.

But whatever the facts were, it doesn’t seem likely that the story can be used to champion the cause that, according to Ann Coulter, states Liberals say black people can’t be racists.

If that is even what Ann is trying to put across in this article. Liberal and Conservative is a cultural not structural difference.

In other words, it is pretty hard to use the color (a structural trait) of one’s skin to make a point about the cultural differences between Liberal and Conservative cultures.

She should have made the point that Hispanic people are more conservative than Africans. As I assume her ancestors were from Africa, that would be a hard point for her to prove, at least structurally 🙂

On the other hand, if she wanted to compare structures culturally, she could use facts to backup the claims that she supports (whatever those claims really are).

But then she would have to use something like facts to back what her claims about cultures brings up, i.e., is there racism in Liberal cultures? (Boy, the answer to that question is a real head scratcher!)

Ann Coulter doesn’t seem to belong to a culture that likes facts, only gut feelings.

And so Ann Coulter marches on, with a new army of followers from every article and book she writes!

Yes Dorthy; They Really Believe It

Bill Maher was at his funniest yet last night.

He finally had to take his favorite blonde (Ann Coulter) out into the cameras to explain to people that, yes, the stuff she says in her books she actually means.

He tried to show the iconic dumb blonde joke the irony in what she writes, but it was lost on her. She is a comedian who has drank the kool aid and has forgotten she is a comedian. She literally keeps Bill in stitches, because of her ignorance. It’s a small wonder why Bill loves her.

And she means what she says not just in her books.

Last night she said that her followers, which I assume Ted Cruz can be called one of her Tea Party followers, actually believe that the country is going to get better, after the Tea Party gets done with it.

Mexicans will once again swim the river for the opportunity America offers. I assume that is when the Tea Party is going to need a tall wide fence–after the Tea Party fixes everything.

I think the Tea Party strategy is that after a tall wide fence then a shallow close way towards immigration. Or as a comedian such as Ann Coulter might say, build it and they will come 🙂

I think we all wish that after the Tea Party gets what it wants without negotiation, things start to blowing up, and the Tea Party gets the economy that it says it wants, everyone will also want back into the U.S.A for the increased job opportunity.

But it is not just the economy that the Tea Party followers like Ann Coulter want to blow up. Climate change, cheap oil, and education are all on their list.

But I have a feeling that If the illegal immigrants here understood what she and Ted Cruz are talking about, I am sure they would want to leave and move back with their families 🙂
