Taking CCW Too Far

Must Have Been A “Sex Shooter”: Inmate Smuggles Gun Into Prison, Internally



Rapid Fire Rimshots -

Makes me wonder if Ronco is getting into the firearms business with their new model “vag-o-matic”.

Cooter Shooter!

You should see her fast draw! Come to think of it, no, you probably shouldn’t!

If a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, what’s a bird worth with one in the bush?

{ancient punchline} So he says, “Flashlight? Oh hell if you can find your flashlight we can find my truck keys and drive home!”

Was that a “piece"-maker?

When they said to carry it cocked and locked, this is not what they meant!

New Mexico woman smuggles gun into jail in genitals, ditches it in bathroom trash

She didn’t stick to her guns. [ thank goodness her guns didn’t stick to her! ]

A New Mexico woman smuggled a handgun into an Albuquerque jail in her genitals and dumped the firearm in a bathroom trash can, police said.

Josephine McAllister, 34, managed to get the firearm past at least four officers who searched her while booking her on stolen credit card charges Dec. 16, police said.

She ditched the gun in the Metropolitan Detention Center bathroom as soon as she could, police said.

An inmate discovered the contraband while taking out the trash and alerted jail officials.

McAllister, who was high on heroin, told police she did not hand the gun over out of fear she would get in more trouble,


EWWW. Still, coulda been worse. She could’ve brought a spare hi-cap magazine in next to it too.

kops miss golden opportunity as some suggest American cops should be this stupid also.

So as expected there are the usual comments like; American cops could learn from the cops here.
Yeah.  How to be stupid maybe.

So this creep with an air rifle and scope, but does one know for sure that’s all it is, manages a stand off for something like three hours.

Betcha some folks are already saying, yeah but they didn’t kill the shit cos he wasn’t black or muslim.

Take a gander at this lunacy.  Some day in the future this creep will do something that ppl will look back on and maybe think he should have been shot dead.  He outta be dead just for looking creep like.

See the link and all the photos. All those cops, an armed squad, this wanker is pointing a weapon at them but the keystone kops are oh so civilized, they don’t delete the bastard.  Jerks.


Terrifying moment teenage gunman took aim at police on Scottish island - and was seconds from being shot by armed officers

Samuel Barlow, 16, roamed around Shetland Mainland brandishing rifle at residents during incident in September
Every officer in Shetland was called to incident while specially-trained officers from Inverness were also flown in
Residents urged to stay indoors as police dealt with ‘serious’ situation which had a ‘major impact’ on community
Barlow - who admitted four charges of assault - was moments away from being shot during stand-off, court heard

By Steph Cockroft for MailOnline

This is the terrifying moment a teenage gunman aimed his weapon at armed police officers, sparking a major firearms incident on a Scottish island.

Samuel Barlow was moments away from being shot by specially-trained firearms officers as he roamed around Shetland Mainland, brandishing his rifle in front of frightened residents.

Armed police almost opened fire at the 16-year-old as he repeatedly pointed his rifle at officers during the stand-off in September.

But a court heard how it was only the professionalism and courage of officers - who initially had no idea what type of gun Barlow was wielding - which prevented the stand-off ending in Barlow’s death. 

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie told the Lerwick Sheriff Court: ‘I am not sure if the accused appreciates how close he became to being shot by police.’

The court heard how the incident - which lasted for several hours - had a ‘major impact on the community’.

At the height of the incident, every available officer in Shetland was called out and specially-trained officers from Inverness were flown in to provide back-up.

Residents were also urged to stay indoors as police dealt with the ‘extremely serious’ situation.

The shocking scenes emerged after Barlow, who was dressed in camouflage trousers and a beige top, was first seen walking with a rifle near Scord quarry, at the outskirts of Scalloway, shortly after midday.

Two police officers, alerted by concerned islanders, were unable to approach Barlow and had to take refuge behind a fire station building as he took aim at them.

After taking to the hills, Barlow appeared in the Westerloch area of Lerwick, the main town, later the same afternoon.

He walked through several people’s gardens, threatened locals and aimed his rifle at police officers who were trying to negotiate a peaceful solution to the stand-off.

Mr Mackenzie added: ‘999 calls were now coming in thick and fast, and a major police incident was declared. It is difficult to convey the concern that there was.’

At that stage, police did not know who they were dealing with and with what type of weapon Barlow was carrying, the court heard.

Mr Mackenzie said there had been a number of occasions where officers had to decide whether to fire, he added.

Unhappy with the police negotiators, Barlow then moved out of view again. Officers decided to ‘move beyond containment’ and make ‘an aggressive approach towards him’.

Mr Mackenzie said: ‘This was a very dangerous situation police officers were in. At the very end, only as the accused was restrained, it was confirmed he had only an air rifle.

‘The accused owes the officers a debt of gratitude for their professionalism and indeed their courage. It was very close to a fatal outcome.’

At the hearing Barlow – who was described as an inmate of Polmont Young Offenders’ Institution, near Falkirk, Stirlingshire – admitted four charges of assault and one of abusive and threatening behaviour.

Barlow’s sentencing was deferred until January 7 for psychological and psychiatric reports.

Defence solicitor Tommy Allan said he would wait for the psychological report before addressing the court in mitigation. His application for his client to be released on bail was refused.

Sheriff Philip Mann said he had no other option than to keep Barlow in custody and warned him that a custodial sentence was very much a possibility.

all it takes people, is a bit of empathy and presto. world peace. listen to mrs clinton

OK. Suggestions?

As a possible future head of state, maybe one of those states that hate us, she could get us all together hold hands and sing we are the world.

We didn’t “empathize” much with Germany back in the day.  Maybe if FDR had empathized more with Tojo and Hitler, war could have been avoided.
Think of the advantage if he had.
Generations of multi language speaking Americans. Sushi imported to the west 70 years earlier.
Supermarkets in the USA run by super efficient German markets like ALDI and LIDL.  German cars 70 yrs sooner. The VW Beetle in the 30s?
Who knows where we couldda got to by showing a bit of respect to folks who kill.

Hillary Clinton under fire after saying America should ‘empathize’ and ‘show respect’ to its enemies

Hillary Clinton, 67, spoke at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.

Claimed America should ‘empathize’ and ‘show respect’ to its enemies

Said US should use ‘every possible tool and partner’ to advance peace

Front-runner Democratic nominee’s remarks criticized as ‘naive’ online

Described as ‘irrational’ by ex-Marine Lieutenant Colonel, Oliver North

Some critics highlighted U.S.’s recent air strikes on the Islamic State

Clinton’s speech was to promote female leadership in foreign conflicts

By Sophie Jane Evans for MailOnline

Hillary Clinton has come under fire after saying that America should ‘empathize’’ with its enemies.

Speaking at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. to promote female leadership, the former U.S. Secretary of State also said the country should show ‘respect’ to those fighting against it.

Using an approach she dubs ‘smart power’ - which women are apparently uniquely positioned to deploy - she urged Americans to use ‘every possible tool and partner’ to advance peace.

This approach means ‘showing respect, even for one’s enemies;

trying to understand and, insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view,’ she said.

Right.  How hard is that?

Hitler’s pov was that all Jews need to be dead, and the Japanese only wanted to kill the Chinese and almost anyone else who didn’t see their perspective on the world.

That’s the secret Mrs Clinton has stumbled on. It could work. If only FDR and Churchill had a bit of empathy. That’s all it takes.

Show a bit of that to the muzzies who have just killed two more westerners, along with many of their own ppl.

Oh if only people could empathize.

The front-runner Democratic nominee’s speech, specifically focusing on female leadership in foreign conflicts and relations, was held in the university’s famed Gaston Hall on Wednesday.

Within minutes of the 67-year-old’s appearance being broadcast, she was being criticized by social media users across America for her ‘ridiculous’ attitude toward the country’s enemies.

Many people condemned her comments in the context of the U.S.’s recent airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS), which has taken over swathes of Iraq and Syria, Fox News reported.

Addressing Clinton directly, one Twitter user wrote: ‘You have NO understanding of ISIS or ANY of America’s enemies. Empathizing with killers only ensures your demise.’

FERGUSON COMES TO LONDON

That there’s been an expected we’re with you protest here by the idiot dupes of the left and other layabout outta work louts doesn’t surprise me.
What did surprise me was some of the comments following this article published in the Mail today, that aren’t anti cop and anti American.  Yeah, there were some and we must expect that.

Lots of photos at the link.

More than 1,000 (Really stupid and ill informed idiot dupes of the left) people protest outside U.S. embassy in London holding placards reading ‘jail racist cops’ following decision not to prosecute police officer over death of black teenager

( SOME REALLY VERY STUPID ILL INFORMED WHITE FOLKS JOINED BY EVEN DUMBER DARK SKINNED ONES)

More than 1,000 people protested outside the U.S. embassy in London last night, with some holding ‘jail racist cops’ placards, following the decision not to prosecute the American officer who shot dead black teenager Michael Brown.

The demonstration, outside the embassy in Grosvenor Square, central London, saw people condemn the grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson for shooting unarmed Mr Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

While rioting, fighting and chaos has broken out in several U.S. states following the jury’s decision on Monday night, the protest in London passed off peacefully and without trouble.

Police confirmed no arrests were made, despite the crowd being so large that it spilled out of a designated area in Grosvenor Square and lined up against the fence of the embassy.

Many of the protesters held placards which read ‘jail racist cops’ and ‘black lives matter’, while others carried candles.

A minute’s silence was observed to remember people killed by the police around the world, which was followed by a loud chant of ‘killer police off our streets’.

Carole Duggan, aunt of Mark Duggan, and Marcia Rigg, of the Sean Rigg Justice and Change campaign, both spoke at the gathering outside the embassy.

Mark Duggan, a young black man, was shot dead by a police officer in London in August 2011 sparking riots across the city, while Sean Rigg died at Brixton police station in 2008. Marcia Rigg is Sean Rigg’s sister.

Ms Duggan told the crowd: ‘We need to send a message to Mike Brown’s family.

‘We feel the pain, we know the pain, of losing somebody at the hands of the police.

‘That is why we stand in solidarity with the community of Ferguson. I feel they are very strong and brave people.’

She went on: ‘They’ve come to a point in Ferguson where there is no turning back.

‘They have to carry on fighting. They have to see this through.

‘We have to stand behind them because you know what happens there will eventually happen here

Ms Rigg said: ‘Burning and looting - we don’t condone these acts - but I for one and I’m sure people around the world understand the frustration and anger that the people are feeling when our loved ones are murdered on the streets.

‘What else are we supposed to do?’

All we keep getting are lying and corrupt officers murdering our loved ones.’

The London protest was organised by campaign groups Stand Up To Racism and the London Black Revolutionaries.

Blame Everyone Else

“The System Does Not Value Black Lives”



Not one single protest anywhere in the USA decrying the endemic and nearly universal level of violence within the black community, ranging from abortion to infanticide to child abuse to sex abuse to gang violence to criminal violence to relationship violence to suicide to senior abuse. Not one.


But when justice is served, and served on fine china with polished silverware and the utmost consideration ...


More Than 170 Protests/Rallies/Riots Across America

The sparks of outrage that started in Ferguson, Missouri, have ignited a firestorm of protests across the country.

But the national furor isn’t just about one grand jury’s decision on one shooting case. To many protesters, the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown—and the lack of an indictment for the officer who shot him—are symbolic of racial injustice in America.

“I think that it’s important for people to know that the decision not to indict (Officer) Darren Wilson means that the system does not value black lives,” one protester marching through Los Angeles told CNN.

Complete coverage of what’s happening in Ferguson

“I think that it means that a cop can kill a black or brown kid when he’s defenseless and unarmed and not get charged. I think that it means that we either fight back and stand up and end police terrorism.”

More than 170 protests sprouted up across the country Tuesday. Some crowds blocked bridges, tunnels and major highways. But unlike the violence that erupted in Ferguson on Monday night, most of the demonstrations were peaceful.

Egged on by our anarchist racist pResident and his sycophant media.

Because none of these morons could accept the simple truth: if you attack the guy with a badge and a gun, you’re going to get hurt. If you keep on attacking him, you’re going to get dead. And that’s practically his job, and it always has been.

I am so sick of Teh Stoopit.

STFU Already

Are You Sick Of This BS Yet??

Michael Brown’s parents address U.N.: ‘We need the world to know’

The parents of Michael Brown, a Missouri teen killed by police, testified before a U.N. committee Tuesday because they want the world to know “what’s going on in Ferguson.”

Lesley McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr. spoke to the United Nations Committee Against Torture—which also works against cruel or degrading treatment or punishment by government authorities.

“We need the world to know what’s going on in Ferguson and we need justice,” McSpadden told CNN in Geneva, Switzerland.

“We need answers and we need action. And we have to bring it to the U.N. so they can expose it to the rest of the world, what’s going on in small town Ferguson.”

Wow, and you thought Obama was a laughingstock.

In a statement, the Browns’ attorney’s office said the couple planned to “testify on behalf of many supporters who join in the appeal for global intervention in the way policing currently functions in America.”

...

Michael Brown Sr. said he and his wife were offering “an outlook on what’s going on in the United States and all over the world with the police, police brutality, no justice.”

This is a new low, even for the professional victim class.

And actually, it’s pretty funny. AS IF the world gave a squat. As if ISIS cares. Or Boko Haram. Or communist China. Or North Korea. Or any banana republic anywhere, where the federales shoot anyone they feel like whenever they want. Or the drug cartels do it instead. Maybe the parents could meet directly with Castro, or with Assad, or whats-her-commie down in Brazil. Places where the garbage dump monkeys are always fed golden bananas, by respectful white gloved zoo keepers. AS IF.

At this point, I really can’t wait for that grand jury to return a NO verdict. No threats, just an unspoken promise. Not In My Backyard. A promise I think might be shared by millions, just waiting. Let Ferguson burn. Who cares? Then plow it under, or just leave it to rot. Not a cent in aid, no a penny for rebuilding.

Guns Are Too Complex For Some; Stick With Hickory Sticks

Jose Canseco Shoots Off His Finger

While Cleaning His Gun

“I didn’t know the gun was loaded”



Former major league slugger Jose Canseco blew his middle finger clear off his hand while cleaning his handgun at home in Las Vegas.

Jose’s fiancée Leila Knight tells TMZ Sports ... he was sitting at a table in their home cleaning the gun when it went off. She says he didn’t know it was loaded—and the shot ripped through the middle finger on his left hand.

Leila tells us 50-year-old Canseco is in surgery right now as doctors desperately try to save what’s left of the finger. She says the bullet tore through the bottom part of the finger and doctors have already said he’ll never have full use of it again ... even under the best of circumstances.

Worst case ... it may be amputated.

Metro police Lt. Mark Reddon says officers responded to a call of an accidental shooting shortly after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Reddon says the former Oakland Athletics outfielder told police he was cleaning his gun in the kitchen when it fired, shooting a finger on his left hand. He was taken to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

Canseco is a right-handed batter who hit 462 career home runs and was a six-time All-Star. He also played for Texas, Boston, Toronto, Tampa Bay, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox during a career that spanned from 1985 to 2001.

Good grief. Ok, we’ll buy this BS for now. But they’d better come up with a better story if he suddenly needs to go to Betty Ford or some other clinic after this.



And for the rest of us, PLEASE don’t start your gun cleaning session by cocking the action and pulling the trigger. Remove the bolt, open the lever, drop the slide, slip out the cylinder, unhook the barrel ... all of these ways will take down even a loaded firearm without it going off.  Naturally, emptying the magazine and clearing the chamber - twice - is the best way to start, but for those of us best suited for a career of playing kid’s games, at least opening up the gun will almost always keep it from going off.

can no longer say, you could not make it up, cos you could. nothings off limits anymore

This is just one of the things wrong with our modern world.

You could, these days, envision it happening and make it up and it would turn out to be true.

There is nothing anymore, that is too bizarre.  Nothing.
And here is one heck of a good example of the stupidity and political correctness that some people have taken on.

I can no longer say you could not make it up, cos you most certainly can. And you’d no doubt be right.

Ordeal of OAP who quipped ‘I’m not Muslim’ at airport security after he was stopped: Man spends six months facing racism charges before case is finally dropped

· Paul Griffith was stopped at Stansted airport on his way to Malaga
· The 75-year-old was asked to take his shoes off before he made the remark
· Airport staff called police and on his return from Spain he was arrested
· But 24 hours before appearing in court the CPS dropped all charges

By Daily Mail Reporter

A pensioner who said ‘I’m not Muslim’ when he was asked to remove his shoes at airport security has spent more than six months facing charges for racism.
Paul Griffith, 75, pictured, set off the security scanner’s alarm at Stansted airport when travelling to Malaga for a week’s holiday.

He removed his shoes as requested, but said: ‘I am not Muslim am I?’

A security guard accused him of racism and called the police, saying he was upset by the remark.

‘One minute I am queuing up to get on a plane and the next I am confronted by two armed policemen.

‘They said I had used racist language and took me to an office in the terminal,’ Mr Griffith said yesterday.

Mr Griffith was allowed to go on his trip but was arrested when he returned. He was charged with causing ‘racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress’.

‘When I got back I had to wait six hours before they interviewed me again, arrested me and said that was being charged with causing racially aggravated harassment.

‘I was photographed, had my finger prints taken and they also took a DNA swab from my mouth. ‘Then they said I would have to go to my local police station.

When I went to Colchester police station I was told I had been charged with an offence under the Crime and Disorder Act but that I could accept a caution instead.

‘I refused to do that - I had done nothing wrong and I wasn’t going to admit to a criminal charge if I wasn’t guilty of any crime.’

outrageously stupid

One of things I like to read is letters to the editor in various newspapers.
I can think of nothing I need to add.  This letter says a lot.

from the Daily Mail

COWARDICE OVER CANINES

TAYSIDE Police have apologised to the muslim community for using a six-month old trainee police dog named Rebel on their campaign advertising a non-emergency police telephone number.
Muslims in Dundee area are upset by the image as they consider dogs ‘ritually unclean’.

Some Islamic scholars believe dogs are impure.
If you have the misfortune to be touched by one of these impure creatures, you are required to wash the offending area seven times.

Re we to assume that airport security might be at risk as muslim passengers might be spared a good old sniffing? 

Shame on you, Tayside Police, you have offended me with your apology.

Valerie Blondeau, Cheltenham, Glos.  (Gloucestershire )

mustn’t say anything that might offend or appear islamophobic

Words almost fail.
What dumb asses they are.  I suppose they think that when the dark mass that is islam takes over, their kind thoughts will spare them.

And speaking of a dark mass. Some darkie with a foreign sounding name, see below,
shows how far into stupid black leadership has taken these brain dead, dead beats. 
Scary when ya think, the Labour leader Ed Miliband is suggesting a voting age of 16. 


National Union of Students refuses to condemn ISIS due to fears it would be ‘Islamophobic’

· Student had put forward motion calling for condemnation of ISIS atrocities
·
· Also called on National Union of Students to pledge support for Iraqi people
· Motion defeated after rebellion led by Black Students Officer Malia Bouattia
· She said motion raised at meeting was merely a ‘justification for war’
· Ms Bouattia has vowed to start work on revised motion which will not be ‘Islamophobic’
· Daniel Cooper, who proposed motion, said he could see no signs of Islamophobia
· Debate raised National Executive Council meeting of the NUS in September
By Julian Robinson
The National Union of Students has come under fire after it refused to condemn ISIS - because of fears it was ‘Islamophobic’.
Students put forward a motion at the body’s National Executive Council meeting calling for the condemnation of terrorist atrocities and support for the Iraqi people.

But the call was defeated after a rebellion led by Black Students Officer Malia Bouattia, who said the motion was merely a ‘justification for war’.
It comes a day after military chiefs from around the globe met to discuss the battle against ISIS and despite a number of Muslim leaders in Britain having condemned the extremist group.

One student, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘Islamophobia is a meaningless term used by irrational people when unable to rebut a rational criticism.
‘Malia Bouattia should realise how lucky she is to be able to stand up and express her opinions with freedom and security.

‘She would not enjoy the same freedom if she were to visit the ISIS/ISIL that she refuses to condemn, and protested her opinions.’
Another added: ‘I personally would find something rather Islamophobic in Ms Bouattia’s idea that condemning ISIS is also to condemn the other, approximately two billion Muslims on the planet - who don’t rape minorities or murder journalists.

Birmingham student Malia Bouattia led a team who either abstained or voted against the proposal, leading to the motion’s defeat.

She said: ‘We recognise that condemnation of ISIS appears to have become a justification for war and blatant Islamaphobia.

‘This rhetoric exacerbates the issue at hand and in essence is a further attack on those we aim to defend.

‘The NUS Black Students’ Campaign stands in support of Black communities across the globe and uncompromisingly against imperialism and Western interference which history shows all too often leads to the suffering of Black people.

Of course, they never but ever act in such a way as to bring things on themselves.  I think I’ll quit here. I see a red curtain.

I’m not laughing

Every time I think we’ve bottomed-out on stupidity, somebody starts digging deeper. In this case:

A comedy club in Barcelona is experimenting with charging users per laugh, using facial-recognition technology to track how much they enjoyed the show.

I’d love to see what the definition of ‘a laugh’ is. Can you define ‘a laugh’? When does ‘a laugh’ start? When does ‘a laugh’ end? Can you tell the difference between ‘a laugh’ and any other facial/vocal expression? I can see it now: “I wasn’t laughing, I was hiccuping.” Was it just one ‘laugh’? or three? If I laugh too much I tend to start coughing. Does my coughing count?

The project was developed to combat falling audience numbers.

I see. Must need to drive away more audience. The audience is the enemy.

Comedy club charges per laugh with facial recognition

Can’t wait for governments to decide to tax laughs. Imagine your tax forms! What kind of laugh records will you have to keep? Will the tax be lower if you laugh at a book? Movie? Yourself? Your friends? Will you laugh when you are audited by the Laughing Revenue Service? Speaking of records—how do you prove your laughter? Let me see… gov’t records the average laughter engendered by a movie. I check that movie out. I find it not funny. Yet the gov’t taxes me for the average laughter.

Would the poor guard, trying to keep a straight face, count as laughter?

Amazon issues totally stupid warning to buyers about racist tom and jerry animated cartoons

The world we live in today is populated by far more idiots than ever before.

Is that due to a greater world population?

Or is it due to far too many people with far too much time to look for things that are not there?

For certain it is due in large measure to an increase in the world’s population of,
left wing, do good (for their egos) ppl who think they are liberals, and are happy to tell the rest of us how to lead our lives and even how we should all think. Or what we ought to find funny and not so funny.

I’m disappointed in Amazon that they found it necessary to add a warning of race-ism, attached to a Tom & Jerry cartoon.  Apologize, apologize, apologize.

Gee, I guess I missed it when I was young and the message went over my head.

I never saw the race issue, never saw the cartoon thinking any less or thinking at all, about Negroes, as they were correctly known in those ancient times.

But the fact of the matter is, if the black cartoon character was portrayed as a stereotype, it’s honestly because in large measure there were many maids and servants of that day, who did speak and act in ways that set them apart as a group.  The many Eastern European Jews who came to the USA spoke with a funny accent, and there was a radio and later TV series based on a character called Molly Goldberg. And those folks also were a recognizable group.  There is no way I can write the way the Goldbergs spoke, but it was aways embarrassing.  So I guess I can understand some black folks being embarrassed and even offended by the way their people were portrayed.  But over time, things got to a politically correct point where simply having fun with a weird accent or stereotype automatically became a hateful thing.  And so some things became .... Isms. Nowadays we have all sorts of things invented by the left and they all carry an ism.
Whatever the left doesn’t want to see and hear or have anyone else see and hear and worse yet approve of, they simply attach an “ism” to it and it become something unacceptable and even carries the force of law in some places.

Tom and Jerry racist? No, the real bigots are those who want to rewrite history, writes sociology professor FRANK FUREDI

By Professor Frank Furedi For The Daily Mail

For more than 70 years, their cat-and-mouse capers have enthralled young people across the globe. Violent, hilarious and often somehow poignant, Tom and Jerry’s only crime has until now been to encourage children to watch tele-vision when they should have been doing their homework, tidying their bedrooms or performing some other worthwhile task.

This week, however, they fell foul of the censors at Amazon, which seems to have taken its lead from Cromwell’s Puritans. The company says Tom and Jerry cartoons must carry a warning that ‘they contain some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society’.

The particular focus of Amazon’s reproach is the portrayal of the black maid in the cartoons, known as Mammy Two Shoes because only her lower half ever appears on the screen. Her character, apparently, is nothing more a crude racial stereotype. ‘Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today,’ states Amazon.

There are those who have applauded the online retailer’s stance. Dr Birgitta Hosea, director of the animation master’s course at the University of the Arts in London, says: ‘Images like that are not OK. Children are at stake here. It is important that they get positive images of people and not just negative, “mammy” stereotypes of black women.’

Poor old Tom and Jerry. All they were trying to do was entertain us, but now the thought police have decided to impose their modern-day values on cartoons made decades ago.

On the surface, perhaps, this is a trivial affair. Why should Amazon not warn viewers that they may be offended by the depiction of Mammy Two Shoes? After all, she is the archetype of a black woman working for a white family from the southern U.S. in the mid-20th century, when such women did not have the vote.

Well, there are a number of reasons in my view.

To begin with, it is deeply patronising to suggest that modern-day families do not understand that they are watching historical cartoons, made when values were different. Are the censors really suggesting that, by watching Tom and Jerry, our children will turn out racist, believing that ‘Mammy Two Shoes’ is the norm?

More importantly, however, this is a worrying new example of the way history is being re-written by politically-correct know-alls who are so blinkered that they can only see things from their own perspective — which is, of course, a modern-day perspective. It is as if they are writing history back-to-front, imposing their own moral views on the past.

These people pose as the champions of children, arguing that by issuing their warnings of racism, they are offering them protection from encountering it.

But it’s hard not to believe that their real motive is to parade their own piety.

out - out damn spot … gween euro weenies consider ban on hairdryers and other stupid stuff

In a post I did on Aug. 22 …..

Another ban from those jerks in brussels who stole our light bulbs. look what they want this time
A headline that greeted us this morning said;
Buy a powerful vacuum cleaner now … before Brussels banishes them.
Dumb and dumber just got stupider.
Starting next month begins the first stage of a ban on powerful vacs.
Another stupid lefty idea to save the planet.
You could not make this up. Only the idiots who think the sky is falling.

Well …. here’s what greeted us this morning.

The great vacuum cleaner stampede:

Panic buying hits shops as deadline looms for Brussels ban on high-powered machines

· Shoppers are panic-buying powerful vacuum cleaners to beat European Union ban that comes into force next week

· Last night, retailers reported that sales had soared by nearly 50 per cent, with many running out of powerful models
·
· Brussels diktat will prohibit companies from manufacturing or importing vacuum cleaners that are above 1,600 watts
By Eleanor Harding for the Daily Mail and Tania Steere

Last night retailers reported that sales had soared by nearly 50 per cent as consumers snap up any remaining stock in the run-up to the Brussels diktat outlawing machines of over 1,600 watts.
Many stores and websites have already run out of the most powerful models, with one reporting its busiest day for sales in more than a decade.
For the first time, vacuum cleaners will have to carry ratings from A to G for energy use, cleaning performance on carpets and hard floors, and dust emissions.

BRUSSELS IS NOW CONSIDERING measures to ban the most powerful hair dryers, lawn mowers and electric kettles, it was revealed.

So then. Dumb and stupid has not reached it’s natural low.  Not yet anyway.

I have seen too much here to dismiss this sort of insanity as something that only can happen here.  I can envision a strong lobby working night and day in the US, to bring the states into closer collaboration with euro-weenies on planet saving. Heck folks, they’re already there and have been for a long time.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
