Stand Your Ground Hypocrites Incite Racial and Anti-gun Animus


By Frances Rice

The rank hypocrisy of Democrats about race and guns is on full display in Florida, demonstrated by how Democrats are exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin.  Two articles about this tragic case can be found on the Internet:  "How Black Leaders Exploit Their People for Political and Financial Gain" by Gary DeMar and "Five Myths of the 'Racist' Criminal Justice System" by Larry Elder.

Various groups of Democratic Party supporters are staging protests in Sanford, demanding the repeal of Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law in the wake of the killing of black teenager, Trayvon Martin, by a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman.

None of those hypocritical Democrats called for a repeal of the Stand Your Ground law when a white man in Tampa, David James, was killed by a black man, Trevor Dooley, and Dooley invoked the Stand Your Ground law in his defense.  An article is posted on the Internet about this case entitled "George Zimmerman & Trevor Dooley: Stand Your Ground Hypocrisy?" by Lee Stranahan.

Meanwhile in Jacksonville, the NAACP is advocating the use of the Stand Your Ground law in support of a black woman, Marissa Danielle Alexander, who claimed self-defense against an abusive husband.  The details about this case can be found in an article entitled "NAACP weighs in on what they say is a 'Stand Your Ground' case against Jacksonville woman" by Charles Broward.

Such hypocrisy about the Stand Your Ground law shows clearly that Democrats are staging protests in the Trayvon Martin case for the sole purpose of inflaming racial tensions to garner black votes.  An excellent analysis of Democrat contortions to create racial tensions in the Trayvon Martin case can be found in the article "Media Dishonesty and Race Hustlers" by Walter E. Williams.

And if the Trayvon Martin protestors can help advance the liberal agenda of President Barack Obama and their fellow Democrats of getting guns out of the hands of average citizens and denying us our Second Amendment rights, Democrats would be happy.  To see an eye-opening article on the origin of gun control, which was a concerted effort by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of black slaves, see the article "Negroes With Guns" by Ann Coulter.

Yes, Obama Ate Dog Meat


By Frances Rice

President Barack Obama wrote in his book "Dreams from My Father" how, as a young boy, he ate dog meat in Indonesia, fed to him by Lolo Soetoro, his stepfather who was a Muslim, as was Obama's father, a man from Kenya.

To see three articles about this repugnant treatment of dogs by Obama, click on the below links.
"Obama as a Boy Ate Dog Meat" by Jake Tapper
"Obama bites dog"   
"Bam Bites Dog" by James Taranto

As reported, the following is what Obama wrote in his book:

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share."

The one-liners are becoming legend.  Below are just a few as reported by Mr. Taranto of the Wall Street Journal.

If you want a friend in Washington, don't eat him (credit to Jim Geraghty).

Happiness is a warm puppy, with a side of fries.

The fact that Obama ate dog has become an issue because Obama and his liberal media sycophants are busily pushing a story about how Mitt Romney transported his dog almost 30 years ago, trying to paint Romney as a rich, heartless guy and turn voters against him.   So, what did Romney do?

Well, a reporter with the Washington Examiner, Byron York, wrote about the incident as shown in the below account.

"In 1983, Romney took his family on vacation and, faced with a packed station wagon, put his Irish setter Seamus in a travel kennel strapped to the roof of the car. Romney constructed a special windshield in an effort to make the dog more comfortable, but Seamus ended up relieving himself on the roof, which reportedly caused much consternation among the Romney boys. Ever since the story got out--it was reported by the Boston Globe in 2007, during Romney's first run for president--Romney opponents have used it in semi serious and sometimes fully serious ways to portray him as insensitive."

That's it.  Obama and his liberal allies, including late night comedians, are having a field day with this trivial story about Romney, all in an effort to distract voters from Obama's dismal record – ObamaCare that's not affordable, unemployment at 8.2%, and an economy destroying $14 trillion debt.
