O’Reilly Gets It Right: Baltimore Rioting Is Leading To Madness (Video)

Sounds like Bill O’Reilly and Nice Deb are simpatico when it comes to the excuse-making and rationalizations we’re hearing from the left on the Baltimore riots. Frankly, I could not be more disgusted and mortified by what’s been going on. By claiming that blacks are oppressed by “the man” i.e – the system – they end up supporting mass violence as a remedy. The left loves to tear things down. It seems to be the only thing they do well.

Here’s Bill O, tonight – and he’s going to get a lot of flack from the Social Justice rage mobs because this is so profoundly un-PC:

“The truth is – we don’t know what happened to Mr. Gray. The same way we did not know what happened in Ferguson, MO,” O’Reilly said, going on to make the point that it is irresponsible for people to make judgments about what happened before all the facts are known.

“The litany of excuse-making is excruciating. The rioters are angry because America’s a country of mass incarceration. People who burn down buildings and loot are just misdirected folks who feel hopeless. And if you feel hopeless, it’s okay to riot. You see – it’s really not the fault of those who commit crimes. It’s the fault of America because we don’t provide jobs for everyone. Instead of pinpointing the real problem, and trying to solve it, you get crazy theories that attempt to provide justification for Americans hurting other Americans. If you can’t make big money – go ahead and sell heroin. No problem!

Here’s the truth. How could anyone provide a job that pays adecent salary to someone who can’t read or write? To someone who can’t speak basic English? To someone who has tattoos all over their body – who’s defiant, disrespectful – doesn’t even want to work because they have a sense of entitlement that says they’re victims and YOU owe me. Does that sound like a good job-seeking resume to you? And don’t tell me those folks don’t exist. They’re legion.

So these politicians – out on the street trying to justify rioting by saying that we don’t provide jobs – are dishonest in the extreme. If you get educated and are willing to work hard – you can get a job. It may not be the best paying job at first, but you work your way up!”

O’Reilly then named names of some of the worst offenders of the week. It was a good rant and a necessary rant:

You know O’Reilly hit the mark as Media Mutters already has a post up denouncing him.

Newsmax: Scant Details From Gray Death Probe Disappoint Protesters:

The refusal of authorities to provide more than a few sketchy details about the Freddie Gray investigation may be legally appropriate, but many people in Baltimore were finding it hard to be patient Thursday when police revealed nothing about the internal investigation they turned over to the state’s attorney’s office.

Nearly two weeks after Gray’s death, the public still doesn’t know much more than it did on Day One. The central question — what caused his fatal spinal cord injury — remains a mystery.

“The transparency is just not there,” the Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon said after Police Commissioner Anthony Batts refused to answer any questions Thursday.

Batts said his department’s report was delivered a day ahead of time to State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and that from now on, any questions should go to her.

Mosby also declined to talk, issuing a statement Thursday asking “for the public to remain patient and peaceful and to trust the process of the justice system.”

With rumors flying about how Gray’s spine was “80 percent severed,” as his family’s lawyer Billy Murphy put it, police did release a new piece of information Thursday, but it served mostly to raise more questions about how truthful the six suspended officers have been with investigators.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie ‘Let ‘Em Riot’ Rawlings-Blake!

Virginia Right! : This week the clear choice for Weasel of the Week is Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Her statement to the potential looters and rioters was a green light to rape, pillage and burn the city. This was both irresponsible and reprehensible. And as we sat there in front of the television watching the police try to block the stones and bricks being thrown, obviously forbidden to respond, it left most with a sick feeling in their stomach.

She said she wanted to “give space to those who wished to destroy.” One can only hope that her career is also destroyed by that stupid statement.

The Independent Sentinel :The Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, is my selection for two weasel statements in one press conference. First, she thanked the anti-white, anti-Jewish, anti-American Nation of Islam for maintaining order, and second she said she “gave those who wish to destroy space to do that as well”.

Go to 01:42:

Don Surber : Mustela Baltimoron mayorus Stephanie Rawlings-Blake for giving rioters, arsonists and looters a space of their own. Her actual words:

“I made it very clear that I work with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech. It’s a very delicate balancing act. Because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”

Oberlin graduate! Need we say more? It takes a certain kind of cowardice to stand up to a crowd of lawless outlaws and say, “Do what you want to the girl, but leave me alone.”

 Nice Deb :The Mayor of Baltimore,Stephanie Rawlings-Blake gets my vote for dumbest quote of the week:

“It was a very delicate balancing act because while we tried to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on — um — we also gave those who wished to destroy, space to do that, as well,” Rawlings-Blake said in all seriousness during a press conference, Sunday.

The weaseliness came during the obligatory walk-back, Monday afternoon: 

“I’ll say the very blatant mischaracterization of my words was not helpful, today. I was asked a question about the property damage that was done, and in answering that question, I made it very clear that we — balanced a very fine line between giving protesters – peaceful protesters – space to protest. What I said, was, in doing so – people can hijack that and use that space for bad. I did not say that we were accepting of it. I did say that we were passive to it. I was just explaining how property damage can happen during a peaceful protest. It is very unfortunate that members of your industry decided to mischaracterize my words and try to use it as a way to say we are inciting violence.”

Because she didn’t want to admit that she made a mistake or misspoke, she blamed the media for “mischaracterizing” what she clearly said. This makes Stephanie Rawlings Blake the very personification of the word, weasel.

She certainly is! What strikes me as most interesting is that, for all the nonsense from the mayor, most of the  Baltimore city council and even the police commissioner (all of whom are black , along with a majority of the police force and 68% of Baltimore’s population) about the need to ‘protect the community,’ their stupidity actually victimized it.

It was the ‘community’ that saw stores and even homes looted and burned to the ground and who will suffer the damage. It’s their jobs that will disappear, and their property values that will plummet. They’re the ones who will have to travel longer distances to find a grocery store, a decent restaurant or a pharmacy. Does anyone really think CVS is going to rebuild after this? Why would they? And the small businesses? Faggedaboudit.

Baltimore has gone to some trouble and expense to promote itself as a tourist city and a great place to hold conferences and conventions. Half a dozen have already cancelled, and those people whom work in the hospitality industry are going to have to find some way to eke out the coming month with the loss of a weeks’ wages and tips.

I was particularly amused to see the rage from ‘the community’ directed at Whole Foods for daring to provide sandwiches and other simple meals to the National Guard when they finally got to Baltimore. To summarize their remarks, they won’t be shopping at Whole foods anymore because ‘they’re feeding the oppressors’…here’s a typical comment.

Rania Khalek retweeted Zoe Samudzi
As Baltimore’s poorest kids are left hungry due to school closure (no school lunch), feeds the oppressor
Rania Khalek added,

I wonder…did they even think about those kids before deciding to burn down the city over the death of a drug dealer with a rap sheet as long as your arm?

As the ringmaster of this circus,  Mayor Stephanie Rawlings – Blake has already shown us that the next Detroit is already in the making..where racial politics and the public employee unions are combining to create  another Democrat-ruled bankrupt urban wilderness. She’s not stupid in the least.she simply understands where  her votes are coming from. It’s an established pattern but she and her fellow pols are certainly performing with zest and vigor, and the Golden Weasel was designed to recognize that kind of achievement, was it not?

Ms. Mayor, please step to the podium for your Weasel!

A little scorched? Why, yes! You see, we wanted to give something back  to the Community too, something that would be a memory of this fine occasion for years to come, something symbolic you know…

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

WaPo: Prisoner in van said Freddie Gray was ‘trying to injure himself’

Well this would seem to be a game changer in the unfortunate Freddie Gray saga that has engrossed the whole country.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday night:

A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.

Fox News’ Rick Leventhal on Twitter said he also heard that Freddie Gray threw himself into walls of van:

As some have pointed out – prisoners do have a vested interest in being helpful to the police – so the prisoner’s story should be taken with a grain of salt. Perhaps forensics will be able to corroborate this testimony.
