Anthony Weiner - SHAME ON YOU!

At long last, the liar has been exposed. A little over an hour ago, Anthony Weiner admitted to having sent a sexually provocative picture to a college student and Twitter follower.   

Over the past week, the liberal press has been telling us that we should be focusing on more important issues and not harassing the Congressman over this "nonsense". Weiner himself stated that his account was hacked, which - as we now know - was a bold-faced lie.

Some urged Weiner to begin a criminal investigation and prosecute the hacker. When the embattled Congressman refused to do so, we knew that something was wrong.  He wanted to let the issue die on its own, and so did his pals in the liberal media.

But now the truth comes out. Weiner directed his staff to lie to the electorate and has been misleading us for the past week. Repeat after me: Anthony Weiner is a liar. Liar, liar, pants on fire.  

But being the master of chutzpah that he is, he now refuses to step down.  He may be lacking in honesty, but he certainly isn't lacking in audacity.

A couple of weeks ago, Republican Congressman Chris Lee was forced to resign for sending a shirtless picture of himself to a woman he met on Craigslist.  But when it's a Democrat that does it, we should let the issue die, right? 

A Republican Congressman resigned for texting a shirtless (and good-looking!) picture of himself, but a President who had oral sex with a White House intern - and lied about it under oath - remained in power.  And I can only imagine the hysteria and shrieks that would have come from the liberal elite if Weiner, like Lee, were a Republican. Anyone who tells me that there aren't double standards in our politics is a moron.     

Finally, a word of advice to Mr. Weiner: Your picture showed us that you're a real man. Now act like it, and step the hell down.

If you were not ashamed to photograph a crotch shot and send it to a college student, if you were not ashamed to mislead the public about it for a week, if you were not ashamed to instruct your staff to lie, now - at long last - have some shame and get out.

You have lost the trust of your constituents. You are a sly man, and I wonder what else you have lied about. Leave in peace, but leave now.

UPDATE: For the record, Weiner is a progressive liberal on domestic issues, including ObamaCare, but at the same time he seems to be a strong supporter of Israel (despite having married a Muslim woman). Regardless of the Congressman's political opinions, I still believe that his crotch shot and subsequent mendacity are entirely unacceptable.

Double Standards in "Post-Racial America"

Michelle Obama has been busy teaching Americans what to eat at McDonald's and other restaurants, but who will teach them how to act?

An unimaginable fate met one unlucky 22 year-old woman who went into a McDonalds restaurant in Baltimore County, as she left in an ambulance in seizure from an unrelenting beatdown by two other women.
The assailants, ages 14 and 18, were black, the victim was white. State's Attorney Scott D. Shellenberger said the racial dynamics of the incident could result in hate-crime charges.
The Baltimore Sun reports that County Police say the incident occurred April 18 around 8 p.m. in the McDonald’s on Kenwood Avenue.
The video, first posted on and posted on the Drudge Report, shows two women — one of them a 14-year-old girl — repeatedly kicking and punching the 22-year-old victim in the head, as an employees of the Rosedale restaurant are heard laughing, and even taping the incident. The manager did nothing to eject and stop the two women from continuously kicking and hitting the victim.
One of the suspects hits the victim's head so hard that the victim goes into seizure. “She’s bleeding, yo. Her mouth bleeding, her mouth bleeding! She’s having a [expletive] seizure, yo! She’s having a seizure right now, she needs help right now! Ya’al better get the [expletive] out of here now!” the cameraman, allegedly an employee, is heard saying.
Only an older white woman steps in to confront two attackers, as the victim clings to her leg.
Both suspects were later identified.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the 14-year-old female has been charged as a juvenile. Charges are pending against an 18-year-old female. The incident remains under investigation and the State’s Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case.
The victim is reportedly still hospitalized.
McDonald’s released the following statement regarding the incident on their website:
“We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling. McDonald’s strives to be a safe, welcoming environment for everyone who visits. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of customers and employees in our restaurants. We are working with the franchisee and the local authorities to investigate this matter.”

Where is the outrage from Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and all the other so-called "civil rights actvists"? Oh, wait - do they pipe up only when crimes are committed against black people, but keep silent when the victim is a white, transgendered woman?

I can only imagine the deafening shrieks that would have emanated from the mouths of these loquacious liberals if the situation had been reversed. I can only imagine how President Obama would have called the attacker's actions "stupid," as he did when a white Cambridge police officer arrested Henry Lois Gates, Jr. Then, in an attempt to reconciliation, he would have invited both attackers and the victim to the White House for a beer summit.

But, of course, none of that happened. Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, where two black women beat a defenseless European-American into a seizure, and the world is silent.  Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, when a McDonald's employee tapes a brutal assault for three full minutes while doing nothing to stop it. Welcome to Obama's post-racial America, where Eric Holder refuses to prosecute the Black Panthers because "his people" suffered more some forty years ago.

As I discussed earlier on this blog, the world was outraged when a black stripper accused white Duke University students of rape, even though it was later determined that these charges were completely false.  But when a white woman is beaten into a seizure, there is no outrage. There is only silence - silence from the left.  

My heart goes out to the victim of this horrific assault. There is a special place in hell waiting for all those who stood by during the crime, for the low-life who videotaped it but did not intervene, and most especially for the savage criminals whom no one in the civil rights community will condemn.
