And They Call Me Racist…

I’ve been called racist because I disagree with the policies of Barak Obama.  I’ve been called racist because of my membership in the NRA.  Tell me, am I really racist though for either of those things?

Hmm, interesting, why wasn’t this covered in the 5 o’clock evening news?  Why didn’t the media out all these folks who are obviously racist for their views of the NRA?

Could it be that people are using the racist label to shame those with opinions of which they differ?  Could it be the racist flag is being thrown when someone doesn’t like the argument of the other and see it as an easy out?  Or could it be that those people are honestly racist and think that anyone else must always be racist in their motives?

You have people like Joan screaming things like:

Plus, the NRA has thought of a cynical new way to make angry white guys more afraid of Black people with guns by encouraging people of color to arm themselves.

*blink* Seriously, I’m the racist here because I don’t have a problem with anyone being armed, yet Joan isn’t racist and is upset at the though of black people carrying weapons because it upsets her and her racist friends.

Look at the reaction by anti-gunners because Colion Noir decided to join with the NRA.  Heck, look at the media in general (just google Colion Noir NRA and you’ll find pages of this type of garbage), their focus wasn’t on Colion’s message, or that he had been doing videos on his own for a long time, it was, “How dare the NRA have a black man come into it’s ranks, especially as any type of spokesman!?”

Seriously, who’s acting racist in this debate?  Because the NRA doesn’t have any other members who are black, much less any black members of the board of directors?  Could it be you cannot argue with facts and logic and you are upset that the NRA represents 4 million people of whom you wish to deprive them of their inalienable as well as constitutionally protected rights?

You all keep using that word in that way and honestly it’s going to be the same as every other abused adjective, devoid of meaning.  You’ve labeled so many people terrorists no one really cares anymore.  When we see a real terrorist you call us racist if they aren’t Christian or have a slightly darker skin color.  Doesn’t matter he just tried to kill a bunch of people, we’re being racist if we label him a terrorist.

I’m seriously sick of this bullshit and hypocrisy.  When I see a man, I see exactly that, a man, nothing more.  He has his own ideas and character and if I call into question either of those things and his skin is a different color than my own I suddenly become racist?

Tell me, am I not allowed to judge a man by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin?  Because it seems everyone is insisting I judge by the color of their skin and ignore his actions and character.

And lets not forget about being called women haters and otherwise being disparaging towards women either; yet those who want to disarm women get a free pass when they say things like the following:

“I just want to say that, actually statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun,” Hudak said during the hearing. “And, chances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”

Not to mention the commentary by Joseph Salazar and the recommendation that women should just piss themselves to fend off attackers by the University of Colorado.

Seriously, WTF!?  How am I the racist misogynist pig in this debate?  How am I the person who hates women or those of a different race?  How is it that my desire to have equal access to arms is a racist or misogynistic tendency?  Someone explain to me how treating every individual as being an equal is treating them as being unequal.  I don’t freaking see it and frankly I’m getting down right pissed at those telling me I am while claiming women should just lie back and think of England.

Because evidently it’s a misogynistic to prefer a woman standing over the cooling body of her attacker in an alley instead of lying brutally beaten and raped with her rapist running away to possibly never be caught.

Because evidently it’s racist to want minorities to have the same rights as everyone else.  It’s racist to want those to have arms to defend themselves from the same threats any of us may face.

Why didn’t anyone tell me I was back in 3rd grade and it is opposite day?

ICHH – Herkimer

James Baron, the mayor of Mohawk, said he doesn’t know Myers but knew several of the people who were shot, including at least two of the barbershop victims. The mayor described his village as close-knit and friendly, “the kind of place where you’d say, `Oh, it would never happen here.”‘

This incident is a pretty nasty one.  It is however a reminder that no place is safe and nothing is guaranteed.  Your survival depends on you no the state and their response and laws.

SSCC #543-#544: Logan County

The Logan County Commission has settled a woman’s lawsuit alleging two deputy sheriffs not only falsely arrested her, but also played a role in setting fire to her house and car in retaliation for complaints she made about their conduct.

U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver on Feb. 24, 2011, ordered the dismissal of Brenda Williamson’s civil rights suit against the commission and deputies Jeffrey Robinette and Matthew Carter after the sides announced they reached a settlement. The terms were not disclosed in court records.

While the county’s insurance carrier is picking up the bill, ultimately the tax payers pay in higher insurance rates.  Not to mention why the officer got upset to begin with.

One officer left on his own, a second still remains hired by the department.

State Sponsored Criminal #543: Jeffrey Robinette

#544: Matthew Carter

Because when someone has their own surveillance system on their house, physically assault them, beat them, and then when they file a complaint attempt to burn them to death and vandalize the property.

Quote of the Day – Tam (3/13/2013)

In retrospect, this could have sucked a lot worse than it did, especially without all you guys and all your support. Thank you all for all you’ve done and for listening to me whine and everything. Y’all helped make this as anticlimatic an experience as anything involving the word “cancer” can be.

Let’s go have fun now. 🙂

SSCC #542 – Springdale

A Springdale police officer has pleaded guilty to depriving a handcuffed man of his civil rights by using a stun gun.

Prosecutors said 31-year-old Mark E. Thom pleaded guilty Friday. Plea documents said Thom beat and used a stun gun on a handcuffed man in Dec. 2011.

Honestly the taser has done nothing but aid in the use of excessive force by lazy police officers.  As usual the department drug its feet letting the criminal resign to save face.  Unsurprisingly, there is also a previous history of corruption with this officer too.

Because by all means when someone’s handcuffed use a taser on them.  Nothing says do as I say like interrupting their central nervous system.

You can’t logically argue someone out of a position they didn’t logically argue themselves into.

It is often not worth the time to argue, it is however worth the time to shine a light on their stupidity and ignorance.  Some may improve themselves and learn from the adventure, others may not.  It is always worth the time to present them the opportunity.  At that point they can indicate their attitude and you can just note the response for future reference.  -B]

@Drake_Reinhardt @soderstromk@crazytrkdriver2 Yes. A rapist should be punished appropriately, not killed. It’s called justice. –Evan Olcott

Preserved for eternity


Yeah I saw a flurry on twitter and after that pile of horse crap, I did get involved.  The guy those is the classic case of Peterson Syndrome.

Best part is he kept saying self-defense was ok, but we shouldn’t kill anyone.  Tell me, what is the most effective method to stop an attacker.  As said before shooting someone merely starts a timer.  The shortest timer is smacking them in the face which is darn near instantaneous.  Center of mass causing massive blood loss is also quick, but also fatal.

Feel free to go pay that rapist supporting woman-hater a visit on twitter.  Remember though, supposedly it is me who hates women for wanting them to get training and empower them to be independent and fight off those who would do them harm.  He admitted he had never been raped but he is more than willing to force his morality and views on real victims.

He focuses on his dream “utopia” of training men not to rape as if evil is merely a learned trait.  Instead I teach women to defend themselves to make rapists lose interest and not want to harm women in general.  Too bad most rapists do it because of a control fixation.

Would it be great if evil didn’t exist, you bet your ass, but as long as we exist, the strong will attempt to prey upon the weak and I want the weak to have every advantage for their own survival at their disposal.

I can’t believe this crap, it makes me sick.  Doubly so since I constantly hear how I’m the problem with women’s rights and some how I cause a lack of respect towards women or endanger them.

Language Warning:

Why do I teach and encourage women people to get the tools and training to defend themselves?  Because FUCK rapists criminals that’s why.

*Evan Olcott, the internet is forever and your general hate and disrespect for women and rape victims shall be remembered forever you sick horrible excuse for a human being.
