Leftist Conspiracies

"A new survey shows that a majority of African-Americans believe a cure for AIDS (search) has been found but deliberately withheld from the poor. The survey, conducted by Oregon State University (search) and the Rand Corporation (search), also found that nearly half of the African-Americans believe the AIDS virus is man made.

In addition, 27 percent say AIDS was produced in a government lab. Sixteen percent say AIDS was created by the government to control the black population. Fifteen percent say AIDS is a form of genocide against blacks. And 12 percent say it was created and spread by the CIA.",2933,145460,00.html

and also:

In a Benneton advertisement (see November 12, 1992 edition of Rolling Stone for an example), movie director Spike Lee said, "AIDS is a government-engineered disease."

When someone like Spike Lee goes onto a national forum says exactly the same unsubstantiated, race-hate-mongering tripe (back in the 90's), and not a single person in the media challenges him on it - what the hell do you expect to happen?

And Bill Cosby chimed in too:

In the December 4, 1991 edition of The New York Post, comedian Bill Cosby said that AIDS was "started by human beings to get after certain people they don't like."

Evidence, gentlemen? (Of course not. The best conspiracy theories require a complete absence of evidence).

AIDS spreads almost entirely by sexual promiscuity coupled with an absence of the use of condoms, or sharing of IV drug needles.

Keep your gun in your holster, and you won't get AIDS. Don't use dirty needles to shoot smack and you won't get AIDS. It's pretty goddamn simple. And that applies to everyone, not just blacks. Go visit the homosexual community in San Francisco and see how "black" AIDS is.

Unfortunately, Spike "I'm a socialist wacko" Lee isn't the only nutjob who believes this:

None of this is very far removed from the lefist conspiracy nuts who claim that jet airplane vapor trails are actually chemical sprays designed to keep people sick. Clearly, the mainstream has left the Left, and what's left of the Left is whack jobs.

Murder in the US

In 2011, I calculate the overall US murder rate as 4.6 per 100,000 population.

But if you recalculate this, and assumed that black men murdered at the same rate as everyone else, the overall rate would drop to 1.9 out of 100,000 population. That would give the United States the 147th highest murder rate in the world - or, the 60th best.

The insane disproportionate murder rate among US blacks is why the overall US murder rate seems so high.

I don't understand why liberals refuse to talk about this. I don't understand why blacks refuse to talk about this. Blacks are just as often the victim as the offender - almost SIXTY PERCENT of murder victims in the US are black. Shouldn't they care about this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to talk about this? Yet they are silent.

And it's not like this is any secret. This culture of violence, abuse of women, and plain thuggery is paraded around daily in pop music. It's glorified on TV shows like "The Wire…

The Root of Violent Extremism

We are too flippant about writing off violent extremists as "crazy", "psychopathic", etc.

Just because *we* have a hard time conceiving of doing violence to others, does not mean that those who do are insane.

Hitler was not insane. Hitler was evil. There is a distinction.

To be insane, to be "crazy", means you cannot understand the difference between right and wrong.

People like Hitler, like ISIS, these people are *evil*. They have, in what they believe to be a rational process, *chosen* to embrace a death-worshipping morality.

Such thinking is going to lead us down wrong alleys in dealing with violent political extremism.

Unless we understand the various reasons why such people embrace philosophies of death, we cannot combat the root causes and defeat violent extremism.

Obama's "they need jobs" is a juvenile approach at this. But you simply cannot ignore and dismiss the reality of life in the countries that are the flash-points of extremism…

Transparency needed in investigations of police

I have not sat on a grand jury any time in my life. I am disinclined, having not pored through records, nor listened to dozens of witnesses, to second-guess the difficult decisions these jurors have had to make.

HOWEVER. There is a clear problem of trust going on, and it stems from a couple different sources.

1) Grand Juries are usually secret. There are good reasons for this. Simply investigating whether a crime might have occurred, which is what Grand Juries do, collects a lot of evidence which could put people's lives at risk, or could be embarrassing. You want folks to feel free to talk. And you don't want the person being investigated to get unduly smeared.

However, the flip side of secrecy is that the lack of transparency can lead to a loss of trust. Clearly, in the two incidents discussed recently, many people who have no idea what went on in the GJ's or what evidence was presented, know, they just KNOW, an injustice was committed! And, because they have no opportun…
