…but the Gladney charges took the cake.

And the Post Dispatch’s headline is laughable:


Six charged in town hall disturbance

Town Hall disturbance. Town hall DISTURBANCE!

Let me remind you a bit of what I wrote IN AUGUST!

Yesterday Black conservatives protested in front of the St. Louis office of the NAACP to protest their non response to the attacks on Ken Gladney back on the 6th.

Mind you this is a man who was beaten and called a Nigger by a white man, there is some raw film too and the news and film was spread on the net that very day. Nothing.

The delightful Dana Loesch of Dump Dede fame noting the time taken and the incorrect information says this:

If only we had access to a network wherein we could share information, do research, and confirm articles in our stories …

Where is Kenneth Gladney and Kelly Owens’ suds summit? Oh, right. The police have to be perceived as the antagonist for that to work and the victims admin supporters, apparently.

Let me be blunt: If I as a person who had attended a tea party, a person who would gladly support Sarah Palin for higher office and who publicly shows agreement with the president’s political foes had done the same as these SEIU men I would be in jail now, my picture would be all over the news an commentators all over MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NBC, BET, UNIVISION et/al would be having long discourses on how Tea Parties and Sarah Palin drive people to racism. My black friends would disown me and I would be the subject of public and private scorn. All the country would all know my name and curse it.

The fact that a whole season has passed before we have reached this point is a national disgrace, John Hinderaker and Glenn Reynolds puts it succinctly:

JOHN HINDERAKER WONDERS why SEIU thugs enjoy more freedom of action than Navy SEALS. Because the SEIU thugs are advancing the goals of people in power?

But I flatter myself that my long explanation is pretty good too:

to an organization like the NAACP it doesn’t matter. Barak Obama is the first black president of the United States and the first black president (no matter who he would have been) can’t be allowed to fail for fear that Americans will consider a black man unqualified for the highest office in the land. And if Ken Gladney needs to be beaten, called a Nigger and put in his place to help prevent that failure so be it.

The problem is that they are looking at President Obama and what drives him backwards. He’s not a Black man who happened to be part of the Chicago Machine. He is a Chicago Machine Pol who happens to be black and THAT makes all the difference.

The tactics he uses and the items he supports are driven by that machine background. His race doesn’t mean squat, that’s why the Gladney story isn’t all over the news. If what happened to Gladney advances his goals, like a good machine pol he’s all for it.

It’s all about protecting their meal ticket in chief

You know there is nothing as tolerant as the tolerant left:

From the video: Supporters of President Obama’s Amnesty plans attacked Tea Party Against Amnesty & Illegal Immigration demonstrators in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Sat. November 14, 2009. One of the men attacked is 62 years old. Dave Caulkett of FLIMEN (Floridians for Immigration Enforcement) is assaulted and then kicked in the face while he is down. The other camera man from the Tea Party is hit with several signs.

You mean to say that the left would commit violence against people who disagree with them? It is possible that Ken Gladney wasn’t an aberration? (How is it that although the police report clearly AND the video shows assault it hasn’t been pursued anyway?)

How does the left tell the tale? I’m sure they will condemn this violence… (cough cough) here is crooks and liars:

I’ve been warning for awhile that there is a violent element already involved in the immigration debate, and when they become empowered by the “tea party” types, it’s going to get ugly. Looks like the debate hasn’t even started yet, and it already is.

There that wasn’t so hard was it? FOOLED YOU he is referring to the Tea Party protesters as the violent ones. Powerline sees what is coming:

We conservatives have long talked about our willingness to fight for freedom. In a sense, that’s generally been metaphorical, especially when talking about domestic rather than foreign enemies. With the far left now on the march, however, it isn’t metaphorical any more. It’s just one more sign of the Age of Obama–fighting in the streets, as the extreme Left has been empowered as never before.

The election of president Obama and his Chicago gang has enabled the Chicago style thugs who supported. This is not a bug it is a feature.

And remember we did this to ourselves as a nation.

Will it make the MSM? Did Gladney?

Ran into a friend of mine who teaches history and current events in a town nearby. We were talking, he is already back to school and the kids come back in a week.

I asked him if he ever heard of Ken Gladeny. He hadn’t.

I told him the story he was shocked.

Update: But they’re still on top of the Mai-Lai Massacre.

If I know him the way I think I know him, (and I’ve known him for 20+ years) he is going to look up the information and verify it. Once he is sure that it is legit I suspect it will show up in a classroom sometime next month.

Slowly and surely the word is going to get out and the reaction against the media for not reporting this is going to dwarf the actual outrage of the act.

After looking at all those civil war weapons etc yesterday I was reminded of something from Ken Burns Masterpiece The Civil War that quoted a New York Tribune at the time:

It is not too much to say that if this Massachusetts 54th had faltered when it’s trial came two hundred thousand troops that for whom it was a pioneer would never have been put into the field…But it did not falter…

Then there is Jackie Robinson:

If Robinson failed, white owners, not to mention fans, who had resisted integrating baseball, would use his performance as “evidence” to support their stance. Every time he stepped on the field, Robinson strapped his race to his back and carried it on his journey with them.

Now we have President Barak Obama. He doesn’t have the experience or service record of a Charlie Rangel, or the moderate record of a Harold Ford Jr. He doesn’t have the civil rights background of a John Louis but he is the man in the White House.

In terms of experience and qualification any of the three men I’ve just mentioned are far superior to president Obama in every respect, but to an organization like the NAACP it doesn’t matter. Barak Obama is the first black president of the United States and the first black president (no matter who he would have been) can’t be allowed to fail for fear that Americans will consider a black man unqualified for the highest office in the land. And if Ken Gladney needs to be beaten, called a Nigger and put in his place to help prevent that failure so be it.

The problem is that they are looking at President Obama and what drives him backwards. He’s not a Black man who happened to be part of the Chicago Machine. He is a Chicago Machine Pol who happens to be black and THAT makes all the difference.
