Remember the victims of race hate

PJ Media: "Remember Him? 'Joosie Smoolyay's' Delayed Trial for 2019 Race Hoax Is Underway."

I didn't think Jussie Smollett would be able to push through the pain he's experienced but he plans to defend himself from these scurrilous charges that he faked a racial attack from three years ago. 

In a totally unrelated note, it's been nearly two months since the University of Massachusetts launched an investigation into racist emails sent to black groups on campus; an incident that gained national attention when reported by the Associated Press.  
The university has hired a cybersecurity firm, Stroz Friedberg Digital Forensics, to investigate the source of the anonymous emails.

The investigation will also try to determine whether the emails are “an isolated matter or part of a larger white supremacist campaign,” he said.
C'mon, Stroz Friedberg, two months of justice delayed is justice denied!  Either these white supremacist email senders are incredibly sophisticated in covering up their digital tracks, or there's another explanation.  But what could that other explanation be?  Stay tuned!

We fear this "iceburg incident" will harm Capt. Smith's reputation

Also, those darn anti-Titanic critics will surely pounce.  Newsbusters: "ABC/NBC Most Concerned With How Omicron Variant Hurts Biden’s Agenda."

Extra - From Instapundit

More - Red State: "For those still harboring the notion that journalists at national news outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and the like are focusing like laser beams on Omicron out of concern for how it may negatively impact the American people, news anchors at both NBC News and ABC News gave the game away during rather revealing segments this morning where they fretted on how a potential mass outbreak of the new variant on par with the Delta variant could … hurt Joe Biden and Democrats next year."

Coercion breeds resentment

Tablet Magazine: "America by Gaslight" - "When institutions and authority figures present open questions as settled and use coercive power to get their way, the collapse of public trust is a predictable result."

Union rules

Reason: "The Build Back Better Bill Will Give You $12,000 for Buying an Electric Car. Unless It's a Tesla." - "Only vehicles made in unionized U.S. factories qualify for the full amount." 


Hot Air: "WaPo columnist: Isn't everyone tired of Warren's "corporate greed" schtick yet?"
The left’s rhetorical response to the rising political threat of inflation continues to evolve. First they said the problem didn’t exist, and anyone who claimed otherwise was acting in bad faith or spouting Republican propaganda. Then, they said inflation is real — but President Biden’s Build Back Better plan would fix it.

Now, they tell us, inflation might be happening — but it’s the fault of greedy corporations! And those companies must be punished.
The two things that drive me bonkers about Elizabeth Warren is her shopworn rhetoric that 1) everybody's a victim and 2) people have no agency.  We're all just helpless proles, bullied by those greedy corporations, and government intervention (and dependency!) is the only solution.

How's that defund the police effort going?

Glenn Reynolds: "A common thread in Waukesha tragedy, Kenosha shootings: Government failure." - "When is a racial hate crime not a racial hate crime? When it doesn’t advance the left’s, and the Democrats’, narrative."

39 years old, you say

I listen to NPR (sometimes) on my commute and here's how they described the guy who mowed over and killed a half-dozen Americans with his car:

Police say the suspect is Darrell Brooks Jr., who is 39 years old.

That chronological advancement of the suspect is the only thing we know until "The suspect in the Wis. Christmas parade attack has a previous criminal record"

We've learned that the man accused of driving his vehicle into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wis., and killing five people had a history of criminal charges. Police identified the suspect as Darrell Brooks Jr., 39 years old.

Much later in the story, we get the very first description on the race of the suspect:

        YOUSEF: Well, Darrell Brooks is Black...

He is?  Wow, well, it took all of five words to blame this on those darn Whites:

...and Waukesha is 89% white. So predictably, extremists have been exploiting this to sow racial division.

Yes, it's the "Republicans pounce" trope.

Now compare and contrast simply the title of a similarly-charged article: "The trial of 3 white men charged with murdering a Black jogger is nearing an end."  

Gee, it didn't take long - at all - to inject race into this story.

I wonder why we know the race of the now-convicted suspects but not their ages.

Malaise? What malaise?

Reason: "Inflation Is at a 30-Year High. Biden's Big Economy Speech Barely Mentioned It." - "The president should be more worried about inflation, and government responsibility for it, than he's acting."

Today, Dementia Joe decided to "help" by releasing 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  Let's see how that worked out!

It's a good thing I saved my Fourth of July cookout money:

"When will you answer our questions?"

Red State: "Reporter Asks *the* Question of the Day at Conclusion of Joe Biden ‘Presser,’ Gets No Answer."

This is normal.

Add it up

The Corner: "Cornyn Asks for CBO Score of Build Back Better without Gimmicks."  

I dunno, AOC is pretty dumb too

Hot Air: "Axios to Rashida Tlaib: Did you seriously propose a bill to empty all federal prisons?" - "I say this not to be mean, in the spirit of gratuitous partisan nastiness. I say it because it’s true: She’s the dumbest member of Congress."

It's refreshing to see a reporter commit an act of journalism.

The ignorance is bottomless

Hot Air: "Misinformation: Kyle Rittenhouse crossed state lines and shot 3 black people after the murder of Jacob Blake."

Even at this late point in the Rittenhouse saga, the mainstream media and the liberal left (I repeat myself) can't get the most basic facts straight:
