In a segment Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly claimed the left supported marijuana legalization because children “in certain ghetto neighborhoods” were using the drug.
The Fox News host was responding to the New York Times’ call for the legalization of marijuana.
Joined by anti-legalization advocate Kevin Sabet, O’Reilly said that “the left” has claimed that marijuana is harmless and that they are concerned that “the blacks” are being trapped by drug laws.
“Look, the left is basically saying ‘harmless,’ okay, which I don’t agree with, I think you know that. Not a harmless substance, alright,” O’Reilly explained. “And, it’s blacks, you know, because in certain ghetto neighborhoods it’s part of the culture. nine-year-old boys and girls are smoking it, and they don’t like that. They don’t want those kids to be targeted by the cops.”
O’Reilly did not note that, although black and white Americans use marijuana at about the same rates, African Americans are arrested at nearly four times the rate of whites for marijuana possession.
Taking his cue from O’Reilly, Sabet added, “The last thing poor communities need is another substance. Actually, there are eight times as many liquor stores in communities of color in this country. Why would we want to add another..” before O’Reilly began talking over him.
As O’Reilly guest Stephen Gutwillig, from the Drug Policy Alliance, attempted to explain that the changes advocated by the Times were not about encouraging use, but “controlling marijuana in a different way,” O’Reilly cut him off.
“Look, you know the unintended consequence of legalization of anything is to send a message to children that it’s socially acceptable, ” O’Reilly lectured. “I mean, any parent who is smoking marijuana in front of the child is abusing the child, in my opinion. And now you have pot shops, you’re going to buy it at 7-11? It’s insane.”
😒

I just— There are no words. What an ignorant racist piece of shit.

South Carolina Mother Jailed Because She Let Her 9-Year-Old Daughter Play in the Park Unsupervised
Here are the facts: Debra Harrell works at McDonald’s in North Augusta, South Carolina. For most of the summer, her daughter had stayed there with her, playing on a laptop that Harrell had scrounged up the money to purchase. (McDonald’s has free WiFi.) Sadly, the Harrell home was robbed and the laptop stolen, so the girl asked her mother if she could be dropped off at the park to play instead.
Harrell said yes. She gave her daughter a cell phone. The girl went to the park—a place so popular that at any given time there are about 40 kids frolicking—two days in a row. There were swings, a “splash pad,” and shade. On her third day at the park, an adult asked the girl where her mother was. At work, the daughter replied.
The shocked adult called the cops. Authorities declared the girl “abandoned” and proceeded to arrest the mother.

The war on working class Black women in the U.S. continues apace. This time, a mother of a 9-year old child is arrested and jailed for the “crime” of dropping her daughter off at the park to play with other children while she had to go to work at a minimum wage job at McDonald’s (which fittingly happens to be located inside a WalMart).  Now the woman’s poor child is in the hands of the South Carolina state authorities [a state which STILL proudly flies the Confederate Flag at its Capitol building]. The irony is that the justification employed by state officials is that the mother put the child at risk by leaving her in the park where some random strangers might have just come along and kidnapped her child. As it turns out, that is exactly what happened, but the kidnappers were the police! They came along and snatched this woman’s child and now she risks losing her daughter forever!

No justice, no peace

Damn, my son walks to the park, the local market, and friends’ houses. This is sick.

Man Arrested After Drinking Iced Tea In Public Must Take Deal Or Go To Trial

A man drinking canned iced tea in a parking lot was accosted by a plainclothes beverage cop who demanded to inspect his drink.  He was placed in handcuffs and arrested.   Even though the man was innocent and was only drinking tea, prosecutors are still trying to set him up with probation and community service.

One man, Christopher Lamont Beatty, was holding a canned beverage, while his friend, Tino Brown, was recording video using his cell phone.  That’s when the two were interrupted by a man who was interested in the man’s choice of refreshments.

A man in plainclothes, claiming to be “the police”, insisted that he turn over his beverage for an inspection.  Beatty refused the stranger’s requests, but pointed out that it was only an AriZona-brand drink, “Half-and-Half” iced tea and pink lemonade — not alcohol.

Brown and Beatty pointed out that they didn’t know the identity of the nosy man and that Beatty had committed no crime.   Still, the man demanded to examine his beverage and would not take no for an answer.

The stranger then claimed that Mr. Beatty was under arrest.  He became grabby and ended up putting Beatty in a choke-hold as he took him down to the ground.

The bully, who turned out to be Alcohol & Beverage Control Law Enforcer Rick Libero, forced Mr. Beatty face-down onto the concrete and placed him in handcuffs.

The government requests that Beatty “submit to a year of probation, do 24 hours of community service, have a mental health assessment, and submit to drug testing and warrantless searches,” reported the Fayetteville Observer.

“It would get it dismissed at the end, but I would still have to take responsibility for my actions, and I felt like I did nothing wrong,” Beatty said

“I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer.”

The thing I like so much about Ann Coulter’s brilliant analysis is how timely it is. Lots of Americans are watching soccer and Coulter is ready to explain that real Americans, the ones whose families have a history here, would never watch soccer.
Of course, Coulter wouldn’t much care for my credentials as a real American. I’m a liberal college professor; I’m pretty much her antipodes. (In fact, by correctly using the word “antipodes” just now, I’ve demonstrated my point.) But not only weren’t my great-grandfathers born here, my father wasn’t even born here. And I don’t much care for soccer.
How would Coulter explain my lack of interest in soccer? Is it because I’m actually a real American, one of the good guys, even though my family so recently arrived here?
I suspect, even though she would hate to admit it, she would.
Because, of course, I’m not from Central or South America. And that’s really what Ann Coulter meant to say more directly in her column … because she is a racist.
