Sarcasm Or Prophecy?

Onion LogoThe Onion has been a source of humor and sarcasm for many years now. It’s also been a bane to many politicians and pundits when they mistook The Onion’s dry and oft-times totally deadpan wit for an actual news report.

Given the normal dryness of their send ups of news and current events, I can understand their mistaking the humor for fact.

A perfect example of this is The Onion’s sarcastic response to Ariel Castro being found hanging in his prison cell on Tuesday night.

Ariel Castro Failed By System

ORIENT, OH—In yet another glaring indication of the nation’s broken criminal justice system, Ohio correctional officers discovered the body of inmate Ariel Castro, a Cleveland man serving a life sentence on rape and kidnapping charges, hanging from his jail cell Tuesday night, prompting strong calls for action from reformers looking to correct America’s failed correctional policy. “What happened to Ariel Castro is symptomatic of a deeply flawed rehabilitation system that provides neither justice nor security, instead allowing countless men and women each year to fall through the cracks,” prison reform advocate John Wolahan told reporters, noting that Castro, who police say was left unattended for 30 minutes at a time by security personnel, was as much a victim of the prison’s negligence as he was of society as a whole. “In a legal system concerned with harsh sentencing and ultra-punitive approaches to justice, the well-being of people like Ariel Castro—those who have to live in the system we created—is treated as a mere afterthought. And I ask you: How many Ariel Castros have to suffer before we realize the machine is broken? His death is something we all have to live with.” Reformers added that the case was especially tragic because prison employees had reportedly seen warning signs from Castro for weeks and took no action.

Yes, this is sarcasm but is it also prophecy? Doesn’t it sound exactly like what one might expect any of the various enemies of law, order, and American judicial and penal systems could be expected to claim in the wake of a monster’s suicide in prison?

The true irony is that the article, intended as sarcastic humor, sounds exactly like what the Liberals and Progressives can be expected to say about Castro’s death. They, after all, don’t believe in punishing non-White Collar criminals and have nothing but hatred for America’s penal system and little but sympathy for creatures quarantined within it.

How The Game Is Played

When it comes to football, especially high school and college football, how the game is played is supposed to be more important than the score or seasonal standings. This doesn’t seem to be how it actually works most of the time, though. Hence, it great to see when it does and to see teams like St. Clairsville High School’s Red Devils, coaches like Brett McLean, and players like Michael Ferns.

How The Game Is Played…Or Should Be, At Least

It’s really quite a simple thing – but simple seems to be bloody damn hard more often than not – Coach McLean, Michael Ferns, and the starting Red Devils did the right thing and showed the depth and strength of character and fellowship that school athletics are supposed to teach young people.

I could go into all the details but ESPN has does a better job of that than I probably could. Just go to the link in the first paragraph if you want the sad and amazing details.

Holder And His People

As all Americans know, or should know, by now, that Obama’s favorite “Blacktivist” isn’t his junkyard dog, Al Sharpton; it’s the more presentable seeming creature he installed as our nation’s Attorney General, Eric Holder.

Holder is Obama’s favorite because he doesn’t have to hold rallies or marches; his Afrocentric racism can be enacted directly through his corruption and debasement of our nation’s laws and law enforcement agencies, as Americans have seen before.

Eric Holder is, after the all, the the one who refused to prosecute the Black hate group, the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation, even when the case was already “won” be default do to their refusal to show up at the court, because they were “his people.”

This subhuman thug-in-a-suit hasn’t stopped with that bit of race-based treason though. Now he wants to ensure that his people are the police force even though they’re abjectly unqualified to be so by any objective measurements.

The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.

It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.

Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees.  The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test.

Under the previous requirements, candidates had to get a 66% on part one of the exam and a 72% on part two.

The D.O.J. approved new scoring policy only requires potential police officers to get a 58% and a 63%.  That’s the equivalent of an ‘F’ and a ‘D’.

“It becomes a safety issue for the people of our community,” said Dayton Fraternal Order of Police President, Randy Beane.  “It becomes a safety issue to have an incompetent officer next to you in a life and death situation.”

“The NAACP does not support individuals failing a test and then having the opportunity to be gainfully employed,” agreed Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward.

The D.O.J. and Civil Service Board declined Dayton’s News Source’s repeat requests for interviews.  The lower standards mean 258 more people passed the test. The city won’t say how many were minorities.

That’s really what it comes down to isn’t it? Blacktivists like Holder and the White ethno-guiltists known colloquially by the pejorative, Liberals are the bulk of true racists remaining in America. They are utterly unconcerned by the content on one’s character, being solely concerned with the color of people’s skin.

Thankfully and surprisingly only that it was reported upon by the media, there is dissent with this cultural treason among at least some of the Black Community.

Zachary Williams is a 21-year-old black Wayne High School grad who wants nothing more than to be a Dayton police officer or firefighter.

He’s one of 225 black applicants who took the November police entrance exam now at the center of a dispute between the city and the U.S. Department of Justice.

His test results are pending the Justice Department’s demand that the city lower its passing score for a police exam to allow for a larger pool of black applicants, while the city argues it is trying to ensure it hires the most qualified candidates.


Williams said he understands what the Justice Department is trying to accomplish, but he thinks it’s the wrong method and it’s keeping him from achieving his dream.

“You can’t blame the city for the lack of diversity,” Williams said. “This isn’t your normal 9 to 5 job and you have to want it. I don’t want to be in a department where I was hired because of my skin color. I want it because I earned it.”

Community leaders agree with Williams and said the Justice Department’s method stigmatizes blacks.

The only question remaining to Americans is what to do about Holder. There is no viable legal solution except trying not to allow Obama – Holder’s “overseer” – to be re-elected in 2012 and it is not even close to a certainty that this goal can be achieved, especially with Obama being essentially guaranteed the 95%+ of the Black vote, and a majority of the other non-White voting blocks support for no other reason than his being not White.

The above is not technically true. We could ensure that with certainty that Obama is not re-elected but it require the broad use of the same tactics that Holder’s people tried in 2008.

No, if Americans are to answer the question of Eric Holder with certainty, we’re going to have to step outside of the overly comfortable realm of legal recourse and accept the consequences of our patriotism.


Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
