AND




No, but McCain and Sister Palin were featured in this music video:



Now, try to get that out of your head.

Yes he was! VIDEO from link to watch here:



Obama had answered his critics and asked them:

"So what else are you talking about? And at that point it kind of trails off..."

LOL!

Don't worry, we won't bomb them for talking politics. That's how they treated black churches:

Birmingham, Alabama, and the Civil Rights Movement in 1963



The 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing

The Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham was used as a meeting-place for civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King, Ralph David Abernathy and Fred Shutterworth. Tensions became high when the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) became involved in a campaign to register African American to vote in Birmingham.

On Sunday, 15th September, 1963, a white man was seen getting out of a white and turquoise Chevrolet car and placing a box under the steps of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Soon afterwards, at 10.22 a.m., the bomb exploded killing Denise McNair (11), Addie Mae Collins (14), Carole Robertson (14) and Cynthia Wesley (14). The four girls had been attending Sunday school classes at the church.

Twenty-three other people were also hurt by the blast...

The reason the IRS won't stop this is because churches can be used for good or evil. In the case mentioned in the OP, I find the hatemongers to be losers.

"Please, please, save us from the scary Iranians!" Netanyahou begs. Can you say:



Deryl Dedmon, two others sentenced from 7-50 years in hate crime



By Therese Apel - February 12, 2015

The three pleaded guilty in March 2012 to one count of conspiracy and one count of committing a hate crime. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves sentenced Dedmon to 50 years and five years to be served concurrently; John Aaron Rice to 18 ½ years and five years to be served concurrently; and Dylan Wade Butler to seven years and five years to be served concurrently. None of them are eligible for probation.

The judge said Dedmon's federal sentence will run concurrent with his state sentence.

The three are part of a group of 10 young white people who have no all pleaded guilty to coming to Jackson, which they called "Jafrica," to harass and assault African-Americans.


Part of the African-American judge's sentencing statement:

"Each defendant was escorted in by African-American U.S. Marshals, prosecuted by an African-American Assistant U.S. Attorney, from an office headed by an African-American U.S. Attorney, under an African-American Attorney General, and my final act will be to turn them over to the Bureau of Prisons, which is also led by an African American," he said.

Not to mention an African American President... More, including the statements of the families, is at the link:

Diclotican:

Just stumbled upon this quote by Søren Kierkegaard, posted by Skidmore:

"I want people to sit up and take notice, to prevent them from idling away and wasting their lives. Aristocrats take it for granted that a lot of people will always go to waste. But they keep silent about it; they live sheltered lives pretending that all these many, many people simply do not exist. That is what is ungodly about the superior status of the aristocrats; in order to be comfortable themselves they do not even call attention to anything."

Norway is doing the right thing there. I've found comments directed toward indigenous peoples recently to be in the catergory of those 'pretending that all these many, many people simply do not exist.' They do exist, their rights should be respected and their voices are needed to move to peace in the world. It will be strange and unknown, but this must happen. Good example set there by Norway.

I think this is an audio file of your brother on this:

All of these stories have a link to downlaod that will put an mp3 file on your desktop to listen to when you have time.

North Charleston NAACP ‘Not Satisfied’ With Police Officer’s Murder Charge

Wednesday, April 8, 2015


In this frame from video provided by Attorney L. Chris Stewart, representing the family of Walter Lamer Scott, Scott appears to be running away from City Patrolman Michael Thomas Slager, right, in North Charleston, S.C. (Courtesy of L. Chris Stewart via AP)

You can see that Scott is running, and not in any way coming at the officer. Not do I think he planned to return. All this over a broken tail light.

‘Black Lives Matter’ Chants Heard In North Charleston

There are many prominent black voices and the groups formed to combat these abuses.

Then I found this:

Police Chief ‘Sickened’ By S.C. Shooting Video

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

This is the fruit of the movement that grew out of Ferguson:

A white South Carolina police officer who claimed he killed a black man in self-defense has been fired and faces murder charges after a bystander’s video recorded him firing eight shots at the man’s back as he ran away. The city’s mayor also said he’s ordered body cameras to be worn by every single officer on the force.

The officer, Michael Thomas Slager, has been fired, but the town will continue to pay for his health insurance because his wife is eight months pregnant, said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, who called it a tragedy for two families.

Police Chief Eddie Diggers said he was “sickened” by what he saw on the video, but his explanations were repeatedly interrupted by shouts of “no justice, no peace!” and other hard questions that he said he couldn’t answer. The mayor then took back the podium and threatened to close the news conference.

Protests began within hours of the murder charge against Slager, which was announced Tuesday, the same day the video was released to the media. About 75 people gathered outside City Hall in North Charleston, led by a Black Lives Matter, a group formed after the fatal shooting of another black man in Ferguson, Missouri.

From the Book of Genesis 4:10:




But the LORD said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground!"

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025471335#post8

Look at the green grass and trees where Scott was mowed down. Now his blood is crying out from that ground.

Sunglasses for the cool kids. Top hats to cover the horns. The list is endless. But it's all wrong!

They're ALL Reptilian Shapeshifters. It comes and goes. You'll never see 'em without the special sunglasses, you know. Now don't get mad, though. Lots of foul language, watch out. This is still an adult website, though.

One of the longest fight scenes ever:



Boys will be boys. Ask Mr. JAG. Uh, that didn't finish the scene. Here's the end. BTW, very bad language:



The film had a black preacher telling everyone that something was wrong. 'They' came and got him. Got 'em all, until the transmission was disrupted at the very end of the flick.

They even post at DU. Yeah, we see 'em:



Shot him from a distance, too, just like Michael Brown. The cop wasn't even scared. Look:



And this one here:



to kpete:

"Stop! Or I'll shoot you 8 times in the back and then plant evidence on you!"
