An Ugly Silence

Harlotte is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Thursday, May 7, 2015. Our artistically gifted friend, Spider Harlotte, is at the breakfast table this morning. She is profoundly saddened by the violent murder of NYPD Policer Officer Brian Moore at the hands of a black career criminal, Blackwell, who shot Moore in the face. I mention the race of the victim and the perpetrator because, thanks to the likes of Rev. Al and President Obama, race is now dividing our nation, and tearing us apart. Harlotte has prevailed upon me to ask all of you to join her for breakfast. She is preparing blueberry pancakes. I will be brewing up a substantial batch of Irish coffees to accompany the pancakes. We hope to see you soon.

In Memory

Thank you all for joining me this morning. On Monday, Police Office Brian Moore, died from injuries he received while on duty in Queens, New York. Officer Moore and his partner, Erik Jansen, drove up to Demetrius Blackwell. They observed a suspicious object in the waistband of Blackwell's pants and they intended to investigate. Blackwell allegedly ( I hate that word) pulled a gun and fired into the car, striking Officer Moore in his face. In just five short months, three New York City policemen have been killed in the line of duty. Brian Moore was a fine officer. He was on the force for five years and he racked up more than 150 arrests. Officers like Moore devote their lives to keeping us safe and facing incredible danger every time they head out on the streets. The current atmosphere in the nation has managed to make their jobs even harder and certainly more dangerous. Would someone please tell me where the outrage is?

No Protesters in Sight

It has become in vogue and acceptable to protest or riot as a response to the shooting of young black men who are engaged in criminal behavior. The media covers the riot. Rev. Al adds to the anger and incites more trouble. President Obama adds to the madness by weighing in before the facts are known. When it comes to the senseless killing of Officer Moore, the silence was and is still deafening. Where is Rev. Al? I can only suppose that the killing of a white officer at the hands of a black criminal doesn't interest him. For Al, it is all about keeping racism alive and well. In a perfect world, the color of the skin would be merely a description and nothing more. In today's world, thanks to people like Sharpton, President Obama and Eric Holder, it is all about black victims. White lives just don't seem to matter that much. I have news for you Rev Al, President Obama and Holder, all lives matter and until people like you and those you influence get that concept we will never be at peace. Just once I would like to see people like Sharpton pay their respects to someone like Officer Moore who lost his life at the hands of an ex-con with a hideous violent history. That day will never happen, because people like the Reverend have a vested interest in keeping the races divided. It his bread and butter and he will never mess with his success. Will someone please tell me where the outrage is?

Cops Lives Matter

It is imperative that sane thinking people in this nation rally around the police officers who have pledged to protect us from harm. If Officer Moore had shot and killed Blackwell, there would be mayhem in the streets. Now there is only silence. President Obama addressed the nation and said that black men are treated unfairly by police. The fact that three of the six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray are black, must be an inconvenient truth for him. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke appeared on Hannity recently and pointed out that between 2009 and 1012, 61 percent of people killed by police were white. We don't and never will hear too much about that. Contrary to President Obama's assertion that blacks are being targeted by law enforcement, Sheriff Clarke referred to that belief as a myth. This nation needs more men like Sheriff Clarke and less like the Rev. Al. Instead of mourning the loss of criminals caught in the act of committing crimes, let's take more than a moment to mourn the loss of a talented and dedicated young man like Brian Moore.

Where is the outrage? Where is the rioting and arson? Why aren't white people out in the streets outraged by the murder of this policeman? They are at work, tha t is where they are. They do not use the murder of a white policeman as an excuse to steal a pair of Nikes, steal some booze or trash their neighborhood. We can mourn the murder of this policeman, but we don't use his death as an excuse to commit mayhem.

Good Morning taxlarry,

No, we don't and neither do young black men and women who were raised to respect the law and their community. See you at the Inn.

Pop and Harlotte,

One obvious point, does Rev Al really think that if white officers were really targeting blacks that his worthless butt would still be alive?

May he rest in peace. Thank you for raising awareness about his death and the double standard we live by in this country.

Good Morning Patti - Some members of this administration and their friends have gone out of their way to further the racial divide in this country. For reasons unknown to me they sieze on every opportunity to stir up racial hatred while ignoring things like this white officer being murdered.

Facts such as more whites being killed by law enforcement than blacks being killed is never presented by the media or government officials. To a large degree our own government is largely to blame for the racial divide we are currently experiencing. It seems as if the government now "owns" the media.

Perhaps this will change after 2016 but that remains to be seen.

Taking anyone's life, exacting it by firearm or any weaponry, by bare hands, or by deflating a person's soul requires serious consideration. We must embrace saving lives and souls (The Talmud states, that to save one soul is tantamount to saving the world.).

There has been a rising of violence for quite some time, and forgive me, but you cannot place the burden on one culture or community. I believe fervently , and I speak from experience regarding policy agencies, that there is a fair amount of , and I use the term, fair, quite loosely, bullying and punitive behaviorism by this hierarchy.

One only needs to view pop culture broadcasts like: The Good Wife, Madam Secretary, Scandal, and other programming to see that the government and its agencies do abuse power. These storylines do not come out of the sky. We see and read about the ilk of many appointees.

However, we can extricate some innocents, and they can be found on both sides of the fence. And, while it is horrific to witness a breakdown in society by way of violent protest, it is my conclusion that if you are not part of the peace process, then you are part of the desecration.

I await my hate mail.

How vert tragic! I saw a statistic the other day that said there have been more shooting deaths by police of white men than black. Its not PC to to be outraged at true justice anymore!

pop....I hate that any of this is happening across our Country...That ALL of this has been so prevalent, unfairly voiced and shown to the world, with bias reporting and public scrutiny. That people are being attacked, ambushed & dying in our streets, as though human life has lost all value.

We are behaving like the savages we despise. Race troubles bubbling up in fury with a BLACK President??!! Does this not defy ALL sensibilities? He HAD the power to create the exact opposite to occur in America. BHO....the eternal epitome of power gone totally awry in every arena. How does one man screw up an entire Nation and everything we stand for?

A recent and startling Rasmussen poll revealed that most Americans now believe that blacks are more racist than any other race, including whites:

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/lif...

I blame that on the constant and false drumbeat coming from the liberal media and politicians/charlatans who have something to gain by claiming that whites are privileged racists and that liberals are the champions of the downtrodden.

But if that's true, why has Obama done virtually nothing, and why is it that over 50% of all gun deaths in the US are young black males killed by other young black males? I blame that on the liberal Democrat policies that have bred hopelessness in these young men for the last 50 years.

R.I.P. Officer Moore. There is something tragically wrong with our nation when people can take to the streets looting and ravaging like savages over the killing of a black person by police. and very few individuals - especially those in the national media - want to mention the killing of a white office by a black criminal.

Doc.....maybe I missed a news report or 2 but I'm wondering....How is that "identifying & reporting" from the public coming along ~~by viewing the footages of the looting & rioting?

The big deal was they want the identities known of the rioters so they can make arrests. Everyone knows everyone.....especially do they know the perps.....so what's the hold up I wonder?.....Could or would any community protect or cover for their worst citizens? Sorta looks that way. I'm just sayin..........

Robin "these story lines do not come out of the sky." I beg your pardon but most story lines do come out of the sky (Marvel comics for example) and "these" kind of story lines you refer to come directly out of left wing Hollywood liberals who want you to see everything through their chosen perspective depending on what agenda they have in mind.

This nation is now in the saddest state of affairs I've ever seen it in because a majority of idiot morons elected this fraud called Obama and then were stupid enough to keep him there. He is the most divisive person, who calls himself a leader, that I have ever seen and I've seen more than a few imposters who have called themselves leaders.

"a majority of idiot morons elected this fraud called Obama and then were stupid enough to keep him there"

The sad thing about that statement is, it's an understatement of our state of affairs.

What do I mean by that? Start here.

61% Of IRS Employees Caught Willfully Violating Tax Law Aren't Fired, May Get Promoted

A government report reveals that 61% of IRS workers caught willfully cheating are not fired, DESPITE A FEDERAL LAW that requires it. In a kind of Lois Lerner effect, they may actually get a bonus or promotion!...

Speaking of Lois Lerner, she sure disappeared while enjoying her fat pension rather than prison where she belongs. I guess all the missing emails of hers they found have disappeared again?

Dear Mike,

Yes, the WH owns the media. The public never gets the truth, never gets both sides of any issue. What is happening now is sickening. Racial tension is worse than ever and I place that squarely on the shoulders of Obama and his miserable friends. See you at the Inn.

breakfastpop 16 months ago Author

Dear Robin,

I can't imagine who will be writing you hate mail, certainly not me. Racial tensions have escalated since Obama was elected and that is beyond comprehension. This should have been a time of healing. This should have been a time of awakening. Instead, Obama and his buddies have soiled the waters and I do blame them. It is in their vested interests to escalate racial tensions, and that is exactly what they did. See you at the Inn and we will talk some more.

Dear fp,

I firmly believe that he appeared and was sent here to screw everything up. The time was ripe for someone of his caliber to appear on the scene. Voters were sufficiently dumbed down and this was the moment. He came here to ruin all that we stand for and he succeeded. See you at the Inn.

Black on black violence is this nation's dirty little secret. You will never hear Obama or Sharpton bring that up. I am sick of the media. I am sick of Obama. I am sick of Sharpton and all his moronic buddies. See you at the Inn. I need to relax.

Dear dr,

I had to change your name because my computer keeps changing it to derby. Please forgive me. As far as this nation is concerned, what's happening now in terms of race relations falls at the feet of this president and his supporters. Shame on them. See you at the Inn.

The title of "Reverend" is highly inappropriate for Al Sharpton. That's all I have to say for now. Thank you Harlotte, for laying bare the facts. I look forward to seeing you one day soon, at the best Breakfast Inn anyone could ask for.

Good Morning savvydating,

A more appropriate title would be "inmate." See you at the Inn. I'll save you a seat.
