One Exculpatory Fact for the Left on the NYC Shooting

Sheldon: Well, whether you see it or not is irrelevant. I can’t see subatomic particles, but nevertheless, they’re there.

The Big Bang Theory, The Zazzy Substitution 2010

I’ve been rather hard on my friends on the left concerning the murder of two New York City Police Officers this weekend, particularly in my ability to find members of the left willing to cheer in public concerning it, so in the interest of fair play I want to offer the following exculpatory facts in evidence for the record.

    1. Fact #1 According to census bureau protection there are currently 313 Million people in America (I thought that was kinda low but we’ll go with it).
  • .

  • Fact #2 The vast majority of that population have access to the internet.
  • .

  • Fact #3 It is my theory that 1% of the population are “Crazy Uncles” (see this post). While these “crazy uncles” would be on the edge of the bell curve in a pool of 313 million they constitute 3.1 Million people.
  • .

  • Fact #4 If you made a bell curve of that pool of Crazy uncles you would doubtless fine 1% of said crazy uncles who are people so hateful that they would cheer the murder of police in public hateful people who would like to see the extermination of people they disagree. If compared with the general population they would be on the edge of the edge of the bell curve but because of the population of the US would still be 31 THOUSAND people .
  • .

  • Fact #5 If even half of those 31,000 extra hateful crazy uncles are on the net expressing said Crazy Uncledom any person who wants to should be able to find a bunch of them saying hateful crazy things. In fact it should actually be easy to find since by definition the vast majority of people either don’t think like that & the vast majority of cray uncles who do are likely too smart to do so in public so the remarks of the real loonies would stand out like a sore thumb.
  • .

    Therefore it perhaps it’s not all that surprising that it’s so easy to find examples of members of the left cheering the murder of the police, given the number of crazy uncles out there.

    Of course if would be nice if the left took the time to denounce said crazy uncles but that’s a post for a different day.

    Atmosphere of Violence

    By:  Pat Austin

    SHREVEPORT — The state of race relations in this country at this time is deplorable.

    Having now stated the obvious, we need to come together and do something about it.  A small part of the problem is the 24/7 news cycle – we’ve got to fill up all that air time and so that’s why you saw, for example, a countdown clock on CNN as the time for the Ferguson grand jury announcement was to come down.  Pundits and race pimps were on all stations predicting (hoping for?) violence and riots.

    We all remember the surreal images of a grim faced Obama split screen that night as looters carried off televisions, threw bottles through windows, and torched a police car.  As Obama addressed the nation he pointed out that we should take the words of “Michael’s” Stepfather father (as if he was a personal friend of Obama, Michael…), who said “hurting others or destroying property is not the answer.”

    Except that’s not what Michael Brown’s Stepfather said; what he said was “Burn this m**f** down! Burn this b**** down!”

    Obama went on that night to speak in a passive-aggressive manner about race relations and the discriminatory practices of police departments across the country:

    But what is also true is that there are still problems and communities of color aren’t just making these problems up.  Separating that from this particular decision, there are issues in which the law too often feels as if it is being applied in discriminatory fashion.  I don’t think that’s the norm.  I don’t think that’s true for the majority of communities or the vast majority of law enforcement officials.  But these are real issues.  And we have to lift them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down.  What we need to do is to understand them and figure out how do we [sic] make more progress.  And that can be done.

    But, Obama is certainly not the first “leader” to stoke the fires of racism in this country.  We can go as far back as you want, but we can see fissures widening as far back as Rodney King and even the O.J. Simpson verdict, to name a couple.  But, we healed, we learned, we moved on.

    What happened to leaders who actually lead and work for peace?  Why are we besieged by people like Al Sharpton who leads a march where protesters chant and call for the killing of cops:

    As Obama civil rights advisor Al Sharpton frantically tries to distance himself from the revenge execution style slayings of two NYPD officers Saturday afternoon in Brooklyn, keep in mind that just one week ago protestors at his march in New York City were chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do what them? Now!”

    Well, he got what he wanted.

    Why do we keep reading about this man?  Why does the media keep giving him a venue?

    Sharpton is as much to blame for the death of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos as the man who pulled the trigger for his role in inciting this intolerable atmosphere of violence.

    It is despicable.

    It is my wish that cable news, print media, and network news channels quit putting this man on television – quit covering his incendiary remarks.  Ignore him.

    It is my wish, at this Christmas season especially, that we can come together as rational, reasonable people and stop the violence.  It is my wish that Obama would stick to golf and get his nose out of race relations.

    It is my prayer for the families of all that have been afflicted by these hustlers that you are able to find some peace through faith and that you feel the love and support of the majority of Americans who truly value the service and sacrifice of the police force across America.

    It is my prayer that police officers across this nation stay vigilant and stay safe.

    Update (DTG) Correction The words concerning “burn it down” were spoken by Michael Brown’s Stepfather not is biological father, thanks to Mr. Woosta for the catch.

    Breaking News From Minnesota, NYC & Florida this Weekend

    Three Stories from this weekend that should get more press:


    Dateline Mall of America Minnesota:  No protesters were beaten or shot Saturday as Police didn’t viciously attack mobs of those who occupied the Mall of America protesting police violence.

    Protesters reportedly didn’t see a bodies dropping as a policeman didn’t strike them repeatedly in the head with their nightsticks, nor were there wounded and bleeding protesters as they were not shot and bloodied by police as other protesters from the Mall of America were removed after protesting police violence.

    Store after store  did not have windows shatters as police didn’t open fire spreading terror among protesters and shoppers like, making Christmas at the Mall a black day that would be remembered for Generations.

    The Governor of Minnesota did not promise to appoint a task force to investigate the carnage that didn’t happen nor offer his heartfelt sympathies to the families of those who were not killed.


    Dateline NYC:  Governor Cuomo of NY did not declare Martial law in NYC and call out the national guard as police by the tens of thousand did not refuse to report to work or vowing not to patrol black areas as long as Mayor DiBlasio remains in office.

    The Governor didn’t make an impassioned speech to call for calm as crime didn’t run rampant as police didn’t abandon precinct after precinct in NYC allowing thugs and criminals to simply run wild throughout the city putting citizens, particularly in minority areas, under siege.

    Elderly women were not afraid to leave their homes go to the market due to the absence of officers as cars didn’t burn throughout their street while youths and gang members couldn’t take advantage of the non absence of police to enforce their will upon the non abandoned communities through the city.

    Nobody reported the scene was like a war zone with the police still there.


    Dateline Tarpon Springs Florida:  Residents of the Glen’s Eureka Apartments on Grand Boulevard in Tarpon Springs are not picking up the pieces as armed police didn’t roust them and destroy their homes in an orgy of revenge for the murder of a police officer who was answering a noise ordinance complaint.

    Their children were not crying as the police and their supporters didn’t force us from their homes nor set them on fire in retaliation for the murder of their brother officer.

    There was not a scene of devastation as community leaders did not deplore the violence that didn’t happen nor were shelters set up for the dozens of families that still have their homes and the police chief didn’t call a press conference to promise a complete investigation of the non-existent devastation.


    What is the point of this piece?  Only this, if the police were even slightly what the press, the Al Sharpton and the Protesters claimed they were, any of these headlines could have happen.

    Hasn’t it occurred to any of the people who have been talking so much smack about cops that there is a reason why this stuff not only hasn’t happened but will not happen anytime soon?

    Perhaps the young men and women in $40K+ a year college might consider questions like this before they buy the narrative being sold to them.
