Cartoon contest organizer known for inflammatory rhetoric

Cartoon contest organizer known for inflammatory rhetoric

NEW YORK (AP) — The Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that exploded in violence over the weekend in Texas was organized by Pamela Geller, a New Yorker who rails against Islam with such ferocity that one of the nation’s top civil rights groups lists her in its “extremist files.”

WHO IS PAMELA GELLER?

Geller, 56, is head of an organization called the American Freedom Defense Initiative, whose mission, according to tax records, is to act against “capitulation to the global jihad and Islamic supremacism.”

Through websites, books, ad campaigns and public events, Geller has been warning for years about the “Islamic machine” that she says threatens to destroy the U.S. SOURCE

Winning Pic in GarlandLet me clear something up and stop some back-channel talk regarding the incident in Garland on Sunday night and my commentary about its sponsor.

Pamela Geller has every right to be as stupid, antagonistic, arrogant, manipulative and self-serving as she wants to be in her persecution of Islam, I have no issue with that in and of itself, as a matter of fact, there are *some* points that I agree with 100%, I just don’t like Pam Geller, it’s a personal thing, and I don’t like the way she took herself to prominence on the national stage, but that too is her right, an action to answer for at some time in the future, but she has the RIGHT to say whatever she wants.

That said; I too have the same right to FREE SPEECH, to some degree on Facebook and other social media and completely on MY blog.

So, why is it that all these *hot-damn* Geller supporters want ME to shut up and not speak MY mind too?

F’ing hypocrites.

Let me make a few things clear for those not familiar with me and this blog; I detest Islam and every last member of that cult of hate, persecution and murder.

I didn’t declare war on Islam, they declared war on me, you and everyone else not of their persuasion. 

I believe that if we’re going to fight a war with Islam, well, by God, let’s fight a war and get on with it. We don’t need a histrionic, headline worshipping Drama Queen starting little *pissing contests* and then running back home to New York. If she wants to start the war in Texas she needs to STAY in Texas and fight the damned battle. Continue reading

I have been telling folks for a long time; we do things a lot differently here in Texas…

Garland and Rowlett, where I live, share a long common border and have a strong mutual aid agreement. We help each other any time help is needed. Our weather may not be to your liking, yes indeed, it gets HOT here in the summer, but damn, you can’t beat our cops and the guns laws.

And most, if not ALL of my positive POLICE posts and comments are based on 1st hand knowledge about Texas and Louisiana Police Officers, folks I know, from Sheriffs and Chiefs all the way down to the Officer on the street. This is hard core redneck country, PISS on ISLAM and every goat loving son of a bitch that’s a member of that evil cult. Continue reading

Police Scrutinized After Baltimore Arrests

Police Scrutinized After Baltimore Arrests

Baltimore Police 1

ATLANTA (AP) — National outrage over the death of a black man while in police custody and the speed with which a prosecutor decided to charge the officers who arrested him could have a chilling effect on law enforcement — at least in the short term while passions are running so high.

Former law enforcement officials, prosecutors and defense attorneys say the intense scrutiny being cast on the behavior of police departments nationwide — especially regarding their treatment of minorities — could lead to a temptation to stop pursuing certain crimes and suspects rather than risk accusations of misconduct.

“If it’s a not-serious street crime, they are probably going to turn and go the other way,” said Frank Rotondo, a former policeman in New York state who now lobbies for police chiefs in Georgia. “They don’t want to be accused.”

Rotondo said such a temptation might be strongest for white police officers who must decide whether to intervene in cases involving minority suspects.

“It would allow that white police officer to think twice,” Rotondo said. “It really would, because even if his actions are correct he might be second-guessed.” SOURCE

OK, I admit it, sometimes I just don’t understand all of the reasons WHY things happen the way they do, this is one of those times.

The initial coroner’s report came out and THIS was the story; Freddie Gray not injured during arrest, head struck bolt in back of van and in a very short time State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby charged the driver of the van with second-degree murder and the other officers with offenses that included involuntary manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, second-degree assault, false imprisonment and misconduct in office. The officers were taken into custody Friday and released on bail. Six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death.

I am not one to throw around a lot of *racist* accusations, that’s not my immediate reaction, but I have to wonder; is this a case of blatant RACISM on the part of State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, her supporters at City Hall, ie; an incredibly ignorant Mayor named Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and God only knows how many other Black officials in Baltimore? Continue reading
