Dead wrong, Beck. I just watched this video, and when the cops initially tried to lay hands on him he pulled his arms away and told the cops not to touch him. His body language also clearly indicated he had no intention of complying with an order to surrender. This is your definition of not resisting arrest? Seriously, Beck, what planet are you from? :/
Granted, there’s a lot they could have done better. They could have more firmly warned him to stop resisting before jumping him, and the choke hold was probably unnecessary, but then, that’s all second-guessing territory. Anyway, Charles Barkley is right–resist arrest and you might get hurt, and that’s what happened.
I will say, though, that when a perp goes “Urr I can’t breathe” that means nothing. I’ve seen that happen on COPS so often that I’m already numb to it and I’m not even a cop myself. Classic case of the boy who cried wolf. And also, what, should we have a regulation stipulating that if a perp says he can’t breathe, we have to let go of him? Do you have any idea how hard it would be to make an arrest under those conditions?

Short explanation: Obama is ALSO the enemy.

So when the neighborhood ignores the car alarm as they usually do, and the perp isn’t deterred by the wasp spray, when the perp tells me to pull my pants down and bend over, I guess I better do it! Thanks, Wallace Zeins! Your advice was completely worthless!

Wonderful, MostlyLib, we’ll just enter a team of transgender men into the Olympics for female events, that way we can get all the gold medals. And what about transgender men continuing to pretend to be women even while straight men are courting them? What happens when the transgender guy continues indulging in his fantasy even into the bedroom? Good grief, do you libs EVER stop to consider the consequences of your little social experiments and freakshows?

Pretty much. Speaking of hatred, I really hate those eyebrows, I mean, gawd, did he draw them in with a Sharpie? Sooo cheesy. And who did his hair, his dad? Like, my gawd.

Give me a break, that kid’s an obvious trap. But hey, it might fool Mr. Magoo.

You’ve got to be trolling, a dumbass, or both. There’s no such thing as demonic possession and to ever blame any ailment on it is extremely irresponsible.

Not even remotely the same situation. The problem here is political correctness running our lives and constraining our free speech, yet at the same time allowing for “exemptions.” Like for instance, you can say, “All white people are X” but you can’t say “All black people are Y”. Likewise, racial slurs. Some are okay, some aren’t. Why? Why can we say one but not the other? I’d like to see the rationale for this on one of your lefty forums where 90% (hahahaha) of the positions have an intellectual basis… on a subject that’s driven purely by emotion and irrational thinking.
But hey, you got the obsessed liberal troll to agree with you, so you’ve accomplished that much.

I won’t deny there’s been an effort by the ruling class to get black people under their thumb, but it’s not the same as slapping chains on somebody and making him live in a stable. Get a damn clue and spend your time defending someone who deserves it.

Okay, guys, I know you’re all eager to defend this guy’s remarks, likely out of a misguided sense of obligation or because you’re actually a liberal hoping to make everyone look bad, but the fact is, we can’t defend these remarks AT ALL.
The black man would be better off on a plantation? Bundy, you try it, you fat idiot! You try working for some jerkwad who pays you nothing, treats you like an animal, and can beat and abuse you anytime he wants. It’s a deplorable existence and for you to defend this stain on our nation’s history is reprehensible, and every single commenter who tries to defend your remarks is an even bigger idiot than you are for saying them.
Yes, something has gone horribly wrong with black culture but even implying that blacks would be better off as slaves is utterly reprehensible.
They are currently slaves, meathead. The federal government is the slavemaster.
This is just a trap to fool stupid people. There is no "right" answer for the people on the left. The correct thing to say is . This is America and that is his opinion. If you don't like it debate him I didn't say it. Once you get involved in these childish pissing contests you will always say something that will drag you into it.

Stop trying to drive the effort to expose a real coverup into the ground with your insane tinfoil BS please.

Folks, I’m going to warn everyone right now that while Anonymous may seem to be fighting for a good cause today, tomorrow it’s just as likely to fight for a bad one. Westboro vs. Anonymous is nothing more than a case of bad vs. bad.

Don’t give him ideas. :(

So even just having my lights on makes me a racist? Up yours, NAACP.
This is the kind of world we live in, now. You can’t even exist without committing some unforgivable sin.

Great, so erotic fanfics are big sellers now. Maybe I should try to sell my Captain Kirk/Optimus Prime slashfic to Random House.* I could make a killing.
*I didn’t actually write that. But someone probably did. :(

Kay, lemme explain something to the libs snickering about Texas taking stimulus money. Let’s say–and for any confused libs, this is a hypothetical example–the Feds tax $100 billion from your state. In a recent stimulus package, they promise you $20 billion for whatever. The Government’s already sucked out $100 billion from your state, and now you have a chance to get a fifth of it back–why the hell wouldn’t you? Oh, but taking that money makes a “hypocrite.”
Let me propose a different idea. How about the Government only tax your state for $80 billion in the first place, then not bother with the $20 billion in stimulus money, hm? Why don’t we do that?
Oh, but can’t we do that. Because then the Government couldn’t pick and choose winners. Then the Government couldn’t ride in like a knight in shining armor and save the day. And then the snarky libs couldn’t snark at the state for taking its money back… and that’s the most important thing, isn’t it?
You stupid libs, you think we aren’t aware of the scam you’re pulling and the no-win scenarios you try to force us into?

While this article is a nice bit of red meat, I’m apprehensive about Putin himself. He’s hardly a champion of freedom. I mean, imagine if this author had laid into Putin in the same manner. I doubt he’d live longer than an hour. And there’s the fact that Putin is trying to re-enact the Cold War by stupidly enabling the very same sort of fanatics who have conducted terrorist attacks on his country to arm themselves with nuclear weapons. Way to play the long game, dumbass. Hope you enjoy seeing a mushroom cloud over Moscow when your “allies” return their gifts to you.
But, on the other hand, it does make me think. If it takes a government mouthpiece working for a virtual dictator to tell you how it is in America, what the hell does that say about our mainstream media?

Man, I hate it when my power is striped. I much prefer it checkered.

Please, the state of Texas could kick the ass of the entire nation of Mexico. Go on, tell me it ain’t true.

Beck, I like some of your work, but you’re wrong on this one. We have to send our government a message that we will not simply sit idly by while they steal elections and engage in corruption on a massive scale. What alternative do you propose, sir? The Democrats have almost everything they want. The Presidency, the Senate, shoot, they might even get another judge in the Supreme Court. Next election we might lose the House of Representatives if Boehner keeps screwing things up. How, exactly, will we be able to stop the descent of our nation into despotism, then?
If we keep trying to work within a system that has been corrupted we will get NOTHING out of it. We need drastic action and we need it now. Man the hell up, Beck.
