Scott Walker Catches Fire In Virginia: Hillary Clinton Should Be ‘Disqualified’ From Being President

Scott Walker
Speaking before a crowd of a couple hundred at a PWC Young Republicans cookout at the county GOP headquarters, Walker lambasted the Washington establishment and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He said Clinton’s email scandal should mean she is “disqualified” from being president. He joked, too, that the leftwing Occupy Wall Street movement didn’t start on Wall Street—it started on his street in Wisconsin. Most importantly, Walker—who did slip a little bit in some recent polls as businessman Donald Trump has risen to become the clear GOP frontrunner—appeared to have a renewed level of energy and seemed to be having fun.

UCONN Prof Jelani Cobb: Still ‘Racism in High Places’ of Government

cobb
On MSNBC’s Saturday show “Melissa Harris-Perry,” associate professor of History and director of the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Connecticut Jelani Cobb explained that the problems in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina are equivalent to the flood in Denver in 1963, as well as the flood in Mississippi in 1927 in that there is still the “same degree of bureaucratic ineptitude and racism in high places,” which allows vulnerable populations to be impacted and displaced. “What happens in 2005 is a replay of what happened in 1965, there’s a replay of what happened with the great flood of 1927 with those same sorts of vulnerable populations, the same sorts of questions about the levees, the same sorts of people who wind up being disproportionately impacted and displaced. And most disturbing, the same degree of bureaucratic ineptitude and racism in high places that allows this to continue and be exaggerated.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

While reflecting on Hurricane Katrina on MSNBC’s “Up with Steve Kornacki” on Saturday, Arise 360’s Lola Ogunnaike declared that if the “people on the ground in New Orleans would have been white” the response to Hurricane Katrina “would have been different.” “I remember feeling horrified, sitting in my living room thinking, ‘This is not America. This is not a first-world country. Why is more not being done?’ I also had the immediate feeling that if the people on ground in New Orleans were white, things would have been different. The government would have acted faster.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Harris-Perry, Jelani Cobb: Blacks Not Seen as American Citizens

MHP
During Saturday’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” on MSNBC, host Melissa Harris-Perry and University of Connecticut professor Jelani Cobb discussed Hurricane Katrina and the perception of African-Americans in America. Harris-Perry stated that she noticed people in New Orleans during Katrina wrapped themselves in American flags, and weren’t labeled as Americans, but rather refugees by the media. “The media, from my perspective, was complicit in. I’ll never forget just how difficult those images were of New Orleanians literally wrapped in American flags or waving American flags and being labeled not as Americans needing rescued, but as refugees.” “They’re literally showing, displaying their sacrifice as citizens and we still couldn’t see them as Americans,” she added. Cobb explained that people in Katrina, as well as Walter Scott and other recent African-Americans shot by non-African-Americans, are not seen as citizens and have had to “deploy new forms of media to establish” their “humanity.” “With looters, they were refugees. The problem wasn’t with the idea of people being called

Friday’ episode of”The Five” on Fox News Channel exploded into a gun control battle between co-hosts Geraldo Rivera, Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld. Rivera started the fireworks by calling for changing the 2nd Amendment and bringing up the Sandy Hook massacre of “26 babies and teachers slaughtered.” Gutfeld fired back and said, “There is a lot of dishonestly going on, coming from specifically Geraldo,” explaining the overwhelming statistics of shooting coming from gang shootings, not mass shooting. He added, “You’re being disingenuous. You’re saying, ‘Oh these things happen all the time and we don’t care about dead babies.’ Screw you.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
