STEREOTYPING OR JOKING? OR BOTH?

I think that Kendall has written here, what I have believed for some time now. Well written and thought provoking. Just remember to be honest with yourselves.

STEREOTYPING OR JOKING? BOTH
written & edited by Kendall F. Person

illegal immigrantsThe above quote by comedian Daniel Tosh It’s not a stereotype if it’s always true, is jarring upon the first read, if viewed through restrained goggles of defensiveness or political correctness. If read when we are in our comfort zones and have a willingness to poke fun at ourselves, than we understand the joke. But it also offers an extraordinary insight, into what turns everyday or historical truth, into one of the most explosive words in the American vocabulary.

DHS hopeful Clarke denies plagiarism in master’s thesis – ABC News

Let me just start by saying that plagiarism is not the biggest problem in this picture.  The problem here is a corrupt law enforcement official who is now trying to infiltrate our United States government.

Again with the smoke and mirrors!

Once again, we are presented with the “look over here while we do this over there” style of leadership and journalism.  We are encouraged to focus on this man’s theft of others work, which is bad enough.  But we are being quietly asked to look away from his huge human rights violations and, his intent to spread this all over the country.

And I will remind some of my friends on the far side of my opposition that this is not good for you either.  Just like any military or para-military operation, there are some things that are considered “acceptable losses.”  And you my fellow Americans are those acceptable losses.  So just as with all problems, we can’t call them “black people problems.”  We can’t call them criminals problems either.  Because under this guy, with the suspension of Habeas Corpus that would be possible under his leadership, anyone could find themselves behind bars awaiting a “fair trial.”

To keep it short, but please look it up if you don’t believe me, Habeas is required to determine whether or not a persons imprisonment is lawful.  Can they hold you or not, based on the evidence that police or other investigators have provided.  That means that they need more than my word that you killed someone to arrest you and hold you in jail for any such reason.

This is a very fundamental part of our human rights.  It prevents you from spending days to years in jail just because your next door neighbor doesn’t like you.  Seems unreasonable doesn’t it?  Well we don’t have these types of problems because we have Habeas.  Most of us don’t anyway.  Cross the wrong person, and you will be glad for it!

I am not a lawyer, but I know enough about the law to be dangerous.  I think the last few paragraphs are proof enough of that.  And it doesn’t matter if you are black or white, male or female, straight or gay.  I could disappear you for months under a DHS leader like Sheriff Clarke quite easily, for nearly anything.  Go ahead and put on your “Make America Great Again” hat and see what happens.

That’s the problem with attempting to take human rights away from any certain group of people.  You expose yourself to those same violations just by setting the precedence with others.  Walls that keep people out also keep people in.  Something people who put bars on their windows in the inner cities find out when they have a fire.  Seemed like a good idea at the time huh?  I will take my chances with the criminals.  You can’t negotiate with fire.

And this guy is a fire waiting for some oxygen.  Don’t look the other way people.
