    It's pretty revealing how the police will almost never say that Black on White violence was racially motivated. I wonder how long it will be before Whites as a group realize that the police are taking sides against them.

    There also weren't nearly as many avenues of mass communication then, so that it may have been censored even more than it is today, and we wouldn't know it. Maybe it's the censorship, and not the shortage of race hustlers, which kept a lid on such pathology in the 50's.

    Not saying that's the case, but by ignoring that possibility, the article is seriously flawed.

    The average civil servant is not immune to the PC speech codes of the establishment elites. People tend not to fall on their swords like they do in the movies. It is up to the voters to overturn the establishment.

    That isn't going to happen. For a representative democracy to function properly you must have an informed, involved electorate. Ours is neither.

    I do hope that if there's a break down of civil society people remember which side the police chose--the marauders.

    The "I was only following orders" defense didn't fly at Nuremberg. Why is it valid now?

    Here's a quotation that perfectly describes the police mindset: “It will never be known what acts of cowardice have been committed for fear of not looking sufficiently progressive.”

    Because there's so few blacks in prison, and they're full of white folk, right?

    You're talking about a different issue, but you knew that.

    Some blacks do get charged with hate crimes. I've also seen prosecutors refuse to charge them. What's a cop to do? I do think that black flash mob attacks have been minimized by the police executives, city officials, and the media in major urban areas.

    I use to listen to a libertarian talk show host who advised not throwing one's self in front of the establishment juggernaut. I don't see the non-PC public forcing the Feds to back off of civil rights violation witch hunts of police officers (Zimmerman is about to get one too). Do you?

    Let's Take taxes for instance. Why do you pay them to support the welfare state? Aren't you a coward?

    The point is that the Conservatives and libertarians need to use the political process to smash the progressive establishment.

    If voting changed anything it would be illegal.
