    Hadn’t thought of that, but your point is true — self-defense. It is a travesty that Bernie Goetz was charged & & prosecuted. It seems like police don’t want an individual to do their job, which is ludicrous. Be meek until authorities arrived, ~10 minutes later?

    A person cannot protect themselves? — By arms or other means? This can be a split second decision & depends upon a victim’s resources (firearm, combating skill, other) based upon…

    In the video, this white guy was beaten because of his ancestry — clear-cut racism by a Black group upon a Caucasian guy.

    Why is this — black on white crime — ignored?

    To Blaze staff:
    What is ADL? Actually, I figured it by re-rereading the first paragraph. It is somewhat standard to introduce fairly unknown abbreviations as such: “Anti-Defamation League (ADL)” or “ADL (Anti-Defamation League)” in the first sentence, rather than forcing the reader to backtrack or just continue reading without knowledge of whatever the abbreviation stands for.
    Additionally, in that 1st paragraph, a sentence was grossly grammatically incorrect. “TheBlaze emailed that ADL about the exact quiz on Monday.” The 3rd word, “that,” should be removed.
    BTW, another recent error (in article on plane crash in Alps & co-pilot’s former girlfriend) is the misuse of “who,” which should have been “whom,” because it was referring to the object of the sentence, rather than the object.
    The sentence was also poorly constructed, because the independent clause seemed like it was referring to the subject rather than the object. The only real way to determine that was its use of a gender pronoun.
    There are grammatical in errors in almost every Blaze article – more than any other media website that I read. Those errors are not heinous, but are negative for several reasons: slows reading speed, reduces comprehension, questions credibility.
    About Article:
    I didn’t fully get the meaning (lack of interest). Although it enlightened me as to how some people take stereotypes [of a Jewish male] & apply to all in said group & to a pet. Could be labeled as racist thoughts, but Judaism is not a race, despite used often. It was disheartening to show how many women are judgmental.

    For a split second, I thought of taking the quiz, then I realized what it was about. I have no idea about the issue (male Jews in “courting” mode) of the quiz, nor date persons of the same gender.

    Why should there be a Palestinian state? There never has been, and Palestinians are neither a race nor an ethnicity. The word Palestine came from the Romans, when they ruled most of the Mediterranean area & was just a geographic term.

    Most of the Palestinians are racist scum murderers, & they should find their permanent home in one of the 57 Muslim majority nations. They neither have the wherewithal, nor economic sense to develop much in the desert, as the Israelis have. In fact, imagine how poor all of the Arab nations would be without selling oil…

    In the US, why would any display of the flag or mention of the country or patriotism (ie “American”) be not inclusive, offensive or divisive? It’s obviously in this country, where immigrants (& illegal aliens) CHOOSE to move to.

    Generally, would a person really dislike any reference to a nation’s history or pride when visiting or moving to another country?

    That would be like outlawing butcher shops because vegetarians don’t like meat.

    There is no “Democratic” Party. There is a “Democrat” Party.
    The word “democratic” is an adjective & often improperly used.
    Additionally, there are no true democracies, which would entail voters deciding on each bill to become a law.

    How was his meaning twisted?
    What poll or source did he cite for his statement? None! BO is often wrong in stating supposed facts.
    Why would BO insult US citizens by claiming their fondness for the Royals. I think most do not care.
    Although, it is very easy to like many people in another country versus US politicians, whom are mostly despised.

    Even suppose that is true, which Obama had no poll nor database to cite — just as he’s often wrong with facts — it is a lot easier to “like” people in other countries, compared to US officials, whom have massive authority, often unjustly, over citizens.

    I think most US citizens (“American” anything is inaccurate) do NOT care about the Royals.

    I would say that it was inaccurate for the anti-gun clerk to say, “this is the gun.”
    I don’t really see how it could be the same actual gun, as Mr.308 typed.

    Those guns must be the “same type/model of gun,” which is obviously rather ridiculous, because any gun can kill a person, as well as knives, bats, arrows, rocks & many other objects.

    How many murders, robberies, beatings & other crimes have been prevented/stopped, just by showing a firearm, or sometimes firing, but not resulting in death or even hitting of a criminal?

    Additionally, he has taken many vacations. I recall recently that it was 30 vacations, although I’m not quite sure & could be mistaken. Even at 20 vacations — that’s 3 per year. Then there are his many golf outings & just the fact that his opulent lifestyle is like a continuous vacation.

    It well-known that he is lazy, misses many security briefings, does not work well with others, is really tyrannical & exhibits many other egregious acts. Of course the LMSM (Lame-stream media) does not report those items.

    I do not think that animosity can be rooted to 1,000 years ago. There are different people & governments. Heck, the U.S. has only existed for a 1/4 of that time.

    Russia was kind of reset in 1917, but for the worst. The USSR & the US were even temporary allies in WWII. Although, that was after the Soviet Union sided with Germany, but then was invaded by Hitler. After WWII, the US even extended a hand of friendship, including offering for them to be part of the Marshall Plan & sharing nuke tech. Even their foray into Vietnam & Korea was unnecessary, but they got a communist NK & eventually all of Vietnam.

    After WWII, the USSR closed up, retained control of most of Eastern Europe, spied on the US with many insiders (spies) in our gov, stole technology & other heinous things. Their claim throughout most of the Cold War was that it was defensive in nature, is bogus!

    True points.
    If I moved to another country, I would take it upon myself to learn their language, customs & such.

  • January 13, 2015 at 6:00pm

    Yep, if we cannot identify those whom want harm & death upon us, we cannot properly defend against & defeat the enemy — hardcore, radical Muslims.

    No real comment on the cowardice & self-censorhsip.

    For those wondering what those French words mean, I found the translation in another Blaze article:
    “Je suis Charlie, a phrase that became popular across the globe following the attacks, means “I am Charlie.” The other French phrase on the cover apparently means, “All is forgiven.””

    Although, I don’t quite understand what “I am ______” means, in any context.

    Question: What does “Charlie Hebdo” mean? To me, that just sounds like a first & last name such as “Johnny Appleton.”

    True. Go ahead & draw it — with stick figures — & post it on some webpage or on a new blog site (ie Wordpress). Your captions are the main point. Of course, do it anonymously & on a library computer.

    Of course same-gender marriage is changing the definition of marriage. Personally, I’m against redefining it, but hardly care. Repubs would succeed more if they hardly cared too.

    Based upon libertarian principles, government should stay out of marriage, except for enforcing contracts. Marriage really is a contract, but without many real terms, & the gov usually makes up many of the terms, such as wealth distribution for divorce, unless there is a prenup.

    I don’t get “Je suis Charlie” translated to “I am Charlie.” I broader terms, I don’t quite understand what “I am ______” means, in any context.

    Another question: What does “Charlie Hebdo” mean? To me, that just sounds like a first & last name such as “Johnny Appleton.”

    Anybody speak French? Please translate what the words on that cover image means.
