Kathy Griffin blames the victim

Originally posted at American Thinker

Liberal comedienne Kathy Griffin abhors Donald Trump.  To make that point, the D-list provocateur decided to rabble-rouse a bit by hiring an edgy photojournalist to take pictures of her holding a likeness of the commander-in-chief’s severed head.

When Donald Trump, the object of her harassment, chose to express his opinion about Griffin’s twisted publicity stunt, the comic responded by accusing the victim of misogyny.  Kathy Griffin made a threat against the president, and now, after suffering the consequences of a joke gone badly, the liberal woman is looking for an excuse to blame the victim.

In other words, Kathy Griffin slept with the devil, and now she wants to abort the spawn she’s conceived by saying she was a victim of political rape.

At a highly publicized press conference, Kathy Griffin, the daughter of a white man, pulled the pink pussy hat card by accusing “a bunch of white guys [of] trying to silence [her].”  Griffin maintained that if she were a “white man” (like Planned Parenthood executives), she’d be able to laugh about decapitated bodies and no one would care.

Ms. Griffin’s defense for paying photographic homage to a terrorist group was to admit that she’s “[n]ot good at being appropriate.”

For that matter, neither is ISIS!

That’s why, unlike her mentors, rather than have the courage of her convictions, Griffin chose to indict “[t]he president and his grown children and the first lady [for] personally trying to ruin [her] life forever.”

Griffin saying Donald Trump is a “bully” for reacting negatively to being threatened with decapitation is like Hillary Clinton telling anyone who will listen – for $250K a pop – that Putin and Macedonia cost her the election.

Wait!  It gets better.

At the press conference, Kathy Griffin’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, the daughter of famous sexual harassment bottom-feeder, Gloria Allred, sneered when asked about the report that young Barron Trump was upset when he saw the gory image of his father.  Bloom said, “We don’t know that.  You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false.”

So, according to Lisa Bloom, Kathy Griffin’s beheading stunt is about Trump lying?

How can people with the imagination to dream up Trump being in cahoots with the Russians scoff at the idea that a blood-drenched replica of his dad’s head would spook an 11-year-old boy?

Notwithstanding the irreverent disregard for children, how does Kathy Griffin, a woman who regularly shills for the #shoutyourabortion crowd, have the audacity to appear at a press conference whimpering like an infant because she’s hurt and frightened?

Kathy Griffin attempted, albeit poorly, to be a firebrand, but when the fire turned around and branded her on the rear end, she crumbled into a sniveling mound of “poor me” – which proves that liberals sure can dish out the excruciating pain.  However, when it’s their turn to suffer the consequences of their own actions, such disher-outers can’t take even a smidgeon of what they impose on the defenseless.

Kathy Griffin loves to wave the flag for the right to dismember unborn babies but cries when someone says or does something that makes her feel bad?  Kathy’s reaction can be likened to an executioner complaining because he got a splinter from gripping the wooden handle of his ax.

Nonetheless, in addition to being just plain loathsome, Griffin told gullible reporters that the bloody head was her creative reaction to the comment Trump made to Megyn Kelly about “blood coming out of her wherever.”  Does Kathy “CNN” Griffin really expect the “what do we look stupid” public to believe that her left-wing photo-shoot paid homage to a former Fox News diva?

Unsure about what she meant when she mentioned her “career,” Griffin told the press that she fanaticized about decapitating President Trump because he “broke her.”  More appropriately, this little sideshow may be more about Kathy not wanting to end up broke than it is about Donald Trump “breaking her.”

Either way, since threatening the life of a sitting president, Kathy Griffin says she has received “detailed and specific” death threats from someone other than herself.  One such blow came from CNN, who exterminated her New Year’s Eve spot with Anderson Cooper, and another came in the form of pooping stool Squatty Potty dumping Kathy’s gig.

As a result of her uncontrollable urge to present decapitation imagery, Griffin is now despondent because, like a corpse without a head, she doesn’t expect her sorry excuse for a career to recover.

Then again, maybe the Kathy Griffin press conference was just the comedienne’s way of doing what she does best when she swears, “I just want to make people laugh.”

After all, it is kind of funny to hear that holding up a severed head made “everyone turn on her.”  It is also amusing when a joker, who built her career on making vile sexual references, refers to Donald Trump with a double entendre such as, “I am not laying [sic] down for this guy.”

Better than that, how about a person currently under investigation by the Secret Service concluding that “[t]hey are using me as the shining object so no one talks about his FBI investigation”?

After the mock decapitation of a man whose style is “frankly an acquired taste,” who wouldn’t giggle hearing the one who performed the amputation defend the indefensible by admitting, “I am barely an acquired taste”?

Griffin’s justification for her behavior is that she was just being herself?  Isn’t that exactly what Trump is guilty of – being himself?  And so an admitted inappropriate entertainer takes a photo holding the head of someone a lot like herself?

After standing by the apology she felt she didn’t need to make, Griffin said of Trump, “I am going to make fun of him more now.”

With that in mind, maybe next, just for laughs, Kathy Griffin will star in a video displaying President Donald J. Trump tied to log headed for a buzz saw.  Then, instead of taking responsibility for pretending to assassinate the president a second time, Kathy Griffin can inspire sympathy by claiming she is “broken” over Trump leaving the Paris Accord.

ISIS — ‘If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit’


SimpsonOriginally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama steadfastly refuses to identify radical Islam as the driving force behind the mayhem massacring its way through the Middle East and nearing Europe with an eye toward America. With shovels in hand, blades sharpened, and petrol cans filled to the brim, it feels as if the enemies of all that is good and holy have been given an unspoken approbation to accomplish their malevolent ends.

The most disturbing thing about that scenario is that approval to do so has been subtly granted by a malicious president whose lack of outspoken condemnation can only be interpreted as unspoken commendation.

The only way to describe how infuriating and confusing the current state of affairs is in America is to imagine how it would feel to be in a courtroom with a serial killer who murdered someone you love. Then imagine hearing the judge, without explanation, slam down the gavel, drop all the charges, and allow the killer to go free. After hearing the judge’s verdict, then imagine the psychopath turning, locking eyes with you, winking, and giving the stunned courtroom an evil grin.

Although a harsh comparison, it’s not so far-fetched when discussing the lack of castigation Barack Obama has expressed for serial killers such as Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortion doctor who snipped the spinal cords of full-term, born-alive babies in his Philadelphia clinic.

In Obama’s world, beheading whimpering babies’ in the name of choice is apparently an acceptable activity.

On the international level, the president, no fan of Israel, has also refused to condemn Palestinian terrorists who threw a Molotov cocktail at a car full of Israelis merely because they were Jewish. Sitting in a seat of self-exalted judgment, Obama is also perversely tepid in his criticism of Iran, a nation that has made it clear that once secret negotiations with the White House are complete and they have the bomb they’ve been dreaming of, they will immediately commence attempting to wipe the Jewish nation off the face of the earth.

If one observes closely, Obama’s opinion is made evident not only in what he says, but in what he doesn’t say.

Already proving that if he can sully the reputations of political enemies, law enforcement officials, crusading right-wing extremist “bitter clinger” Christians, or land-grabbing Israeli Jews, Obama is more than willing to have his gavel come down on the side of the guilty.

Yet if the opportunity arises to condemn the alleged killer of innocent Muslims or to presume innocence based solely on race or ethnicity, Obama can be counted on to seize it.

Meanwhile, 21 Coptic Christians were martyred on a Libyan beach and Barack Hussein took almost four days, $2.5 million, and a completed golf trip to acknowledge that the blood that seeped into the sand and sea flowed from the headless bodies of ‘People of the Cross.’

As for the Jews killed in a Paris market, Obama referred to them as a “bunch of folks in a deli in Paris… randomly” shot to death by “a bunch of violent vicious zealots.”

For most, it’s disheartening that the President of the United States reduces murdered Jews to “a bunch of folks in a deli” and turns their executioners, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” into “a bunch of violent vicious zealots.”

Therefore, irate would be a mild term to describe the indignation many Americans feel as injustices are meted out over and over again by a president whose philosophical leaning seems to be to exonerate the guilty at the expense of the innocent.

And as inexplicable an attitude as that might be to some, while referring to another famous murder trial in a 2008 interview on ABC Barack Obama gave a glimpse into the reason he refuses to condemn the likes of genocidal jihadists and instead chooses to disparage our ally Israel and write friendly letters to the Ayatollah of Iran.

On ABC’s “Nightline”, then-candidate Obama spoke to Terry Moran about race relations and said this:

You remember when, during the O.J. trial… black and white culture just had these completely opposite reactions and nobody understood it. I’m somebody who was pretty clear that O.J. was guilty.

So the president thought it was “pretty clear that O.J. was guilty.”

But then Obama admitted:

And I was ashamed for my own community to respond in that way, but I also understood what was taking place, which was that reaction had more to do with a sense that somehow the criminal justice system historically had been biased so profoundly that a defeat of that justice system was somehow a victory.

How’s that for insight into why President Obama, in the name of fair-mindedness, has habitually been on the side of unfairness for the last six years?

The president seemed to say that although shameful, the black community’s reaction to the O.J. verdict was justified and his acquittal was some kind of recompense for a justice system that has been “historically biased.” So according to Barack Obama’s twisted sense of social justice, a butcher who nearly beheaded two people successfully beating the justice system and getting away with murder is a victory against profound historical bias.

So when Barack Obama writes in an op-ed regarding the White House Summit on Violent Extremism that terrorists whose religion he refuses to name have “legitimate grievances” against those he views as oppressors, his shameful non-reaction to beheading, shooting, burning, and threatening to unleash a nuclear bomb on Israel starts to make sense.

It also explains why, just like irrelevant shrunken gloves took center stage at the O.J. trial, while Islamic terrorists burn 45 Kurds alive in cages, domestic terrorists and homegrown violent extremists are being talked about at yet another useless White House “summit.”

Clearly, what’s at work here is that, in Barack Obama’s mind, Judaism and Christendom, in all their white and oftentimes European glory, have always been biased against Islam.  Therefore, regardless of how much barbarism and blood is required to defeat those powerful institutions, with a wink and an evil grin an arrogant Barack Obama believes that ISIS, like O.J., merits a belated victory.

 

Jah’Keem Yisrael and Protecting Muslim Sensibilities

10458013_732887180102611_1745111527179385972_nOriginally posted at American Thinker

In Moore, Oklahoma a Muslim convert shouting Islamic utterances, on a rampage following getting fired, expressed his displeasure by beheading an innocent woman in a meatpacking plant.

This wasn’t Jihadi John in Syria, or south of the border where drug cartels remove heads with great regularity; this took place late afternoon in Oklahoma.

And as shocking as a woman being beheaded in broad daylight is, what’s more horrifying is the fact that after she arrived in the morning in one piece and left in the afternoon zipped into a body bag, as usual the politically correct types seem to be more concerned with protecting Muslim sensibilities than acknowledging bloody jihad.

After reporting about the Oklahoma decapitation, some news reporters are taking time to reassure Americans that even though beheading is done in the name of Islam, beheading isn’t something all Muslims do.

By and large, the same people calling blatant terrorism “workplace violence” are the ones who insist that a black youth being shot by a cop after robbing a convenience store is usually “racism.”

Here we have a suspect named Alton Alexander Nolen who, after he converted to Islam in prison in 2011, changed his name to Jah’Keem Yisrael.  Jah’Keem already sported a Jesus tattoo, and after his conversation added “AS-SALAAMU ALAIKUM” to his abdomen.

Jah’Keem Yisrael’s Facebook page reveals a confused youth that clearly morphed from a hip-hop fan who wrote things like: “GETN READY ANOTHA WEEK DAT DA LRD HAS BLESSED ME WIT” into a devout follower of the Prophet Mohammed, dressed in full Muslim regalia and calling for jihad.

Judging from things he says on his Facebook page, Jah’Keem Yisrael was raised in a Christian home where, while getting ready to  go to church, his mama sang along with the O’Jays to “Stairway to Heaven” (no, not that “Stairway to Heaven”).

Since coming out of prison, he spent his time offering Dawah to kids in Old Navy t-shirts and proselytizing on behalf of Islam while working at Vaughan Foods.

Nolen’s Facebook rants include preaching against non-Muslims, especially Jews, and features gun-toting Taliban fighters as his cover photo and a picture justifying beheading infidels, complete with a severed head.  In addition, Jah’Keem lauds Osama Bin Laden, displays the smoking Twin Towers, and has numerous photos starring himself as was a proud member of the Islamic Mosque community in Oklahoma City.

As reported, at work Nolen argued on behalf of stoning women, and that evangelistic crusade cost him his job.  That’s why, after he was fired, the disgruntled ex-employee decided to substitute stoning women for beheading one woman and stabbing with intent to behead another.

After all, in the Quran 8:12 it does say:

When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

In the process of stabbing the second woman, Alton Alexander Nolen was shot and wounded by the COO of Vaughan Foods, Mark Vaughan, who thankfully was also a Sheriff’s Office reserve deputy carrying a concealed handgun.  If Muslim Apologist Barack Obama, who has chosen to remain silent on the matter, had his way, Mr. Vaughan would not have been armed, a second woman would be missing a head, and much more bloodshed would have followed.

Speaking of Barack Obama, after the beheading the president, who thought it was appropriate to bring up Ferguson, Missouri in his speech to the General Assembly of the UN, chose not to step forward to extend his condolences, or to point out that the deceased woman could have been his mother, sister, or aunt.

Instead, in response to Colleen Hufford leaving work in a hearse without a head, the White House issued a “no comment,” and for now, has deferred to the FBI.

Apparently, the Obama administration has decided that the day of the first terrorist beheading in the U.S. is not the time to formally acknowledge that the brutality James Foley and Stephen Sotloff suffered in Syria has officially arrived here in America.

In the next few days, it will be interesting to see how much attention will be shifted from Jah’Keem Yisrael removing Colleen Hufford’s head to shielding peace-loving Muslims from criticism. While the left eagerly accuses most white cops of racism, it’s highly unlikely Jah’Keem Yisrael’s brand of Islam will be painted with the broad brush it deserves.

Chaos and Carnage Outside a Mexican Pepsi Bottling Plant

mexicoOriginally posted at Clash Daily

The “place of eternal formation and fertility of flower buds,” also known as Uruapan, is located in the Mexican state of Michoacán and is home to avocado farms, a monarch butterfly sanctuary, and a Pepsi bottling plant. That is why having to pass seven corpses propped up on plastic picnic chairs in the middle of a traffic circle would definitely put a damper on anyone’s day.

That’s right. Dropped in the center of the city, seven men aged 15 to 40 who had been tortured and shot in the head were neatly positioned in lawn chairs with notes anchored to their chests – not with a safety pin, but with ice picks! The Post-Its did not say “Note to self: bring home a quart of milk.” Quite the contrary – all seven messages read: “Warning! This will happen to thieves”, except for the one that said “Warning! This will happen to thieves, kidnappers, sex offenders and extortionists.”

All of the alleged car washers were shot execution-style, but only some of the victims had their hands and feet bound. Those victims were probably the ones who were refusing to cooperate before having their brains blown out. Nonetheless, it goes without saying – Pepsi or no Pepsi, it looks like these fellows made either the La Familia Michoacana or the Los Caballeros Templarios very, very angry.

Although quite a sight, the Pepsi Seven weren’t the only murders in Mexico in recent days. In a neighboring town called Guerrero, the body count climbed to 14 when seven more people were shot to death in the Hotel Restorants Vegas bar in the Ciudad Altamirano region of Tierra Caliente.

According to authorities, “Fast and Furious” masked men armed with AK-47s arrived in trucks, burst into the bar and opened fire, gunning down nine people, leaving two alive in critical condition.  Although the stories vary as to the identity of those killed, most agree that among the dead were four civilians and three off-duty federal agents. That time, no notes were left behind.

The noncombatant patrons were likely innocent victims of a confrontation between armed gunmen and federal agents who, after being followed to a bank, sought refuge in the bar of the nearby hotel. The assassins followed them in and shot up the place, messing up the bar, shattering bottles of Mexican beer, and ruining everyone’s evening.

Over the last seven years, about 70,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence attributed to drug cartels. The Mexican government “estimates that at least another 26,000 have ‘disappeared’ in that same period.”

Abductions and fatal gunshot wounds aside, the mode of execution that garners the most attention is beheading. The fine art of head removal, sometimes with a steak knife and sometimes with a chainsaw, made its debut and picked up speed in Uruapan, Michoacán, home of the Pepsi Seven, after armed men in masks rolled five heads onto the dance floor of a bar as a warning to a rival gang. That special delivery also came with a note that said the act was “divine justice” on behalf of “the family.”

If you think finding seven dead bodies in an intersection is disturbing, try having your line dancing interrupted by heads rolling across the dance floor right in the middle of a well-executed synchronized dance step.

Decapitations increased during Felipe Calderon’s presidency. In 2011 between January and November, there were 493 beheadings and dismemberments directly attributed to the Zetas, who got the idea to remove heads from bodies after they mimicked al-Qaeda and received training from Kaibiles, a Guatemalan Special Forces squad.

While a gory sight to see, at least the Pepsi Seven didn’t have their faces peeled off, sewn onto soccer balls, and delivered to city hall in plastic bags. That’s what happened in Sinaloa in 2010 to Hugo Hernandez. Poor Hugo gave new meaning to the concept of being unable to “hold it together.” The deceased man’s torso was “found in a plastic container in a separate location from another box that contained his arms, legs and skull” and was also accompanied by a note that said “Happy New Year, because this will be your last.”

After Enrique Pena Nieto replaced Felipe Calderon as Mexico’s new president, he vowed to quell the chaos and carnage. Yet by mid-February of this year the bodies were really beginning to pile up, as 2,243 individuals had already been murdered in cartel-related incidents.

Granted, the lawn chair lineup was a shocking thing to discover, especially at 5:30 in the morning. However, in the overall scheme of things, intact corpses with their heads and faces still attached is a vast improvement over the bloodshed and butchery that Mexico has endured for the past six years. As for those seven bodies found outside the Pepsi plant in Uruapan, well, unfortunately for them that ‘Pepsi Day’ they had hoped for didn’t turn out quite like they expected.

Barack’s Border War with America – American Thinker – July 7, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker blog

America is fast becoming the bastion of diversity.  We are a nation that celebrates the cultural kaleidoscope and broad spectrum of ethnicity that makes America great.

Take for example our Mexican neighbors.  Now that’s one fiery crew, so full of life, so zesty and determined. This particular group addresses issues in a way that is alien to American mores, but if integrated could benefit the overall fabric of the nation.  Truth is, drug and human traffickers, as well as illegal immigrants, exemplify the positive characteristic of unwavering determination.

If viewed in context, logic dictates that being courageous enough to illegally enter the U.S. exhibits a unique quality of purpose.  Understood in its complexity, crossing the border or fighting to escape poverty with an AK-47 and a machete could be a laudable characteristic if it means obtaining a better life for yourself and your family.

Recently, in an attempt to do the work “Americans won’t do,” job-seekers on the border of Arizona grappled for the chance “on one of the roads” that used to be a “relatively tranquil pocket of northern Mexico.” Activity there has been misconstrued as “a hotbed of drug-fueled violence on Arizona’s doorstep” when, in fact, it may merely be a creative attempt at accessing employment.

Regardless, the confrontation “between rival gangs competing for drug and immigration routes into the U.S.” is fueling Border State concern. Confusion comes into play when those in despair willingly take a desperate quest for work to another level.

Nogales… which shares a border with the Arizona city of the same name, has had 131 murders so far this year, nearly surpassing 135 for all of 2009…That includes two heads found … stuffed side by side between the bars of a cemetery fence.

The carnage… pales compared to other Mexican border cities, most notably Ciudad Juarez… across from El Paso, Texas, which had 2,600 murders last year.

While some define beheading as gruesome butchery, understanding is called for because hostility usually indicates lost hope and desire to break free of poverty.

Who can blame these people?  Sneaking over the border in some circles is considered a crime, as is holding up people at gunpoint, kidnapping or even murder. Yet, in essence, brutality could be a positive means to an end.  In fact, if anything, border circumstances have been made worse recently not by gangs, but by Arizona law.  The Grand Canyon State may very well be culpable for injecting desperation into an already tense situation by attempting to enforce the law.

Many Americans, especially in Arizona, refuse to consider the circumstances involved in a recent “shootout that left 21 people dead and six wounded on a road just a small distance south of Mexico.”  Eager to exercise racial legislation Arizona would be hard pressed to acknowledge that those involved likely were just attempting to assist the destitute in making a better life.

We must remember:  history tells us desperate people do desperate things.

Barack Obama’s refusal to acquiesce to Arizona’s “misguided legislation” is one gutsy move.  The president’s commitment to “fairness” could successfully quell the shooting, kidnapping, murder and beheading presently taking place on the southern border.

It may take Obama’s empathetic willingness to relinquish American sovereignty and the rule of law to turn the tide.  The President can then judge the success of immigration reform not by the cessation of fighting on the border, but rather by the detrimental effect Obama’s purposeful addition of unbridled lawlessness imposes on America.
