I was sitting at home this afternoon, perusing the internet and trying to find some inspiration to write something not only for my blog but my new blogging home here at Shoot a Liberal.
I'm now at work and I'm still trying to accomplish this task. Woot.
Actually, I lie. This has changed.
For the past two days the media has been abuzz with the incident of Cynthia McKinney assaulting an officer of the law when she was restrained by said officer. She was not wearing the proper credentials to allow her to pass through a security checkpoint without going through a metal detector.
As most of you know, Ms. McKinney has immediately turned this into a racist issue, as we all expected she was.
According to Breitbart.com, her lawyer has been quoted as saying:
"Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans
across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law
enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin."
This Congresswoman attempted to pass through a security check without the proper credentials to allow her to do so, she was restrained by a Capitol police officer-an officer of the law only trying to do his job-and she assaulted the police officer. She punched the officer, then when she was called out on it she immediately turned it into a racial issue to deflect the fact that SHE VIOLATED THE LAW and focus attention on the innocent police officer who was, as I said before, only trying to do his job.
Nancy Pelosi has already been quoted as saying that "this isn't a big deal." What do you mean, "this isn't a big deal?" An elected representative, supposed to uphold the laws and statutes of the nation of the United States of America has violated mentioned statutes by assaulting a man charged with her very security!
You liberals want to spew hatred about how President Bush is "spying" on the American people and is committing "war crimes" when you have no evidence to back it up. You've come out and said that an elected representative is not above the law, so why aren't you denouncing Ms. McKinney and calling for her immediate arrest? You are hypocrites of the worst kind.
Fortunately Drudge is reporting that an arrest warrant is expected soon; unfortunately she wasn't immediately detained for the crime she committed.
And the moron will not apologize for her assault. Why? Because she sees nothing wrong with assaulting law officers, especially when they're white!
This woman should be censured and removed from office for such a crime. Let's hope the Republicans have more balls when it comes to this when compared to their immigration "reform" and spending habits.
