Video of Violent, Rioting Surfers Shows White Culture of Lawlessness

what is wrong with you people!? you'd think that parents who are overly concerned with abortion would at least make the effort to teach their children, after they are born of course, that their whiteness is not a license to commit acts of civil disobedience!
I'm not proud. They have a lot of catching up to do with the everyday violence in black communities, which we Democrats are so proud of. We deal with it of course, by calling anyone a racist if they talk about it.

Welcome to the new normal: Large-scale black mob violence is busting out in Philadelphia, Chicago, Utica, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Wilmington (Delaware), Greenville (South Carolina), Grand Rapids, Peoria, Springfield (Ohio), Newark, Boston and Brooklyn.
Police say they are baffled. Others say it is a regular meteorological event:“Large crowds and fights are not uncommon in the city in the warm weather,” said the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia.

The latest example of the new normal took place Tuesday in Philadelphia: 200 black people on the streets of the downtown financial district: fighting, vandalizing, rampaging, refusing to disperse, tossing bottles at police. It began at 4 p.m. and took police 90 minutes to restore order.

At the epicenter of the violence, an employee of Wendy’s said no one was surprised.

“It usually happens when the weather breaks,” Lakia Garrick told the local Fox affiliate.“They come in here and go crazy. It was really expected.”

Fourteen black people were arrested and charged with misdemeanors.

The riot came less than a month after the political and media establishment of Philadelphia rose up in outrage at an article in Philadelphia Magazine called “Being White in Philly.”

The article documented how racial violence was an every day fact of life in the City of Brotherly Love; and how most white people were afraid to talk about it because they were afraid of being called a racist.

Or as the Philadelphia Inquirer put it: The article was seen as “dwelling on negative experiences that whites had with blacks that often fit into racial stereotypes.”

Mayor Nutter asked the city’s Human Relations Commission to investigate the author and the magazine.

Perhaps they could call Brandon Jones as a witness. Temple University hired Jones to get to the bottom of these large scale violent events in Philadelphia two years ago. He explained the widespread black mob violence in the area to Diverse Issues in Higher Education:“He understands the high energy level of youths and the need ‘to blow off some steam.’”

Meanwhile, the television stations in Philadelphia are being extra vigilant to ban from their message boards any Philadelphia Magazine-style comments attributing the violence to race. That is why George says his comments were removed from the ABC news site:
“I am honored that the uneducated censor that monitors this board removed my previous post. Since when is it against ‘Posting
Policy’ to request people not jump to conclusions when there is a large fight in the city? Tsk Tsk, honesty certainly is not anything you are acquainted with. You must be a Philly School graduate.

Anyway, I grew up in the city & there were MANY HOT days & nights and we NEVER started or were involved in fights with 200 people or 10 people. I imagine in the words of Michael Vick,‘It is a cultural thing’.”

Glenn noticed the same thing:“They wiped out pretty much the whole first wave of comments. No grace for stating the obvious.”

U.S. Open of Surfing Turns Into Riot
Burt Etheredge, a store employee of the HB Easyrider Shop, the store that was looted, had this to say to NBC Los Angeles:
“We were all huddled inside the building and we had the lights off because all the people were up here mobbing around, and I was inside and I saw them tearing down the stop sign,” he said.“As soon as that stop sign came down, I knew that stop sign was coming through the window. And sure enough, two seconds later, it did.”

Come one Mighty Dumb Builder, man up, admit your party's immense failure under Bush, Boehner, McConnell, Hassert, Cantor & Ryan.

disagree

The recession was caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank.
The reason the Democrats supported the war in Iraq was because the Republicans were stupid enough to give them no effective oversight of their ludicrous CRA program, which ultimately collapsed our economy.
Today, Obama's "recovery" is putting 5 people into poverty for every 1 person it allows gainful employment for.

Now, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

You have zero statistics of significant voter fraud that a photo ID would prevent.
These people have IDs, just not photo IDs.
But hey your party's policies are so anti-American & so inane that you have to resort to cheating to win elections, by denying people their constitutional right to vote.
Funny how you right whiners only bring up the Constitution when it is convenient but piss on it when it comes to gay marriage & the right to vote.
The only objections to voter ID are from those who would commit fraud.

A person has to show up at the polling for a vote card to be cast, dumbass.
Traditionally, a vote card identified how many votes the person casting the card represented. Here, it is just one vote per vote card.
You saw the proof of over 100% turnout, dupe.
Now, let's get back to the issue of Democrats programming voting machines to steal votes.
See. I KNEW you were dumbass.

A "card" in that county is a ballot page. Since there were two pages in this election, each vote would mean two cards possible.

You not only did not know this but then you outright lied & try to say it was " one vote - one card".

Once again I have proved you not only to be ignorant but also a liar.

Sweden, India and the Philippines have been victims of terrorism by radical Islamist groups.

In Thailand, nine Buddhists were killed by Islamic jihadists and randomly kill Buddhists, school teachers, Buddhist priests, Muslims who work for institutions in southern Thailand, and members of the armed forces.

Tenzing, what did these countries do to interfere with Middle Eastern affairs - seeing that Islamic terrorism has occurred in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia - and not just North America?

Do you suppose radical Islamists might just desire a global Islamic state?

That's what I think anyway - and probably most of these other countries.

white punks rioting!!!
Just when you thought that the surfing crowd was generally a laid back one, a riot broke out in Huntington Beach, Calif., Sunday evening following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing contest. And there’s video showing the chaos.
It took local law enforcement officials a few hours to put the riot down, according to KTLA-TV.
“The unrest occurred while officers were attempting to disperse crowds following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing,” the report notes.
Lt. Mitchell O’Brien told KTLA5.com the Huntington Beach Police Department was forced to request backup from other law-enforcement agencies.
“The area was declared an unlawful assembly and police moved in to make arrests,” a Huntington Beach Police Department press release notes.
One witness said the unrest led to property damage, including several overturned portable toilets and damaged police cruisers.
Officers dispersed crowds with pepper spray, the witness said.

Nothing new other than Obama has wised up to the republicans audacious ideologues. Ever wonder which party has been the greates obstruction to our nations progress?
Lets go to the bottom line. Just which of the two party’s is the party to party with? Lets put them to the numbers. Going back 80 years. That will expose as to who is who a little bit more clearly than hyped up foxy journalist could ever do or dysfunctional opinionated commenter’s that infect this thread with their loose thread ideologies.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there is more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Hey, at this point beggars can't be choosers. When you have the president and the Senate doing everything they can to enlarge the dependent class, we, the earning class, have to take jobs wherever they come from. Self-reliance has morphed into white-reliance.
So, you're saying that we should just accept our Third World status that the Bush Administration and Republicans put us in. That's too self-defeatist for me. I'll stand with the President Barack Obama and his more American belief in our own innate abilities to adapt and change and improve when we work together.

The frustration in the black community is tangible and real.

Maybe if Democrats and the black leaders in a very lucrative Grievance Industry stopped talking so much about themselves and their "concerns" and actually started talking about the problems and doing something about them, all of us would get on board.

But keeping the race issue alive is another means of a politically-motivated end. Always has been.

Can't have too many educated and successful blacks. They might not need the Democrats' dependency anymore and vote Republican.

Thailand has local issues not necessarily connected to the Middle East. Philippine Islamic problems goes back to 1898.

US shifting interest to Asia, as China Japan conflict over Islands could prove difficult as US has treaty to defend Japan.
