The massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston by an evil psycho is a hideous thing. The case is especially sickening because the victims were chosen specifically because of their race. Thank God it's extremely rare for whites to target black people for attack.

And yet the public is being told by The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC and Salon that the Charleston massacre is proof that we live in a country packed with marauding racist murderers. It's like saying we have an epidemic of men flying gyrocopters onto Capitol Hill. Yes, there's that one time, but I notice you keep citing the same case.

In The Washington Post, for example, columnist Lonnae O'Neal blamed the Charleston attack on "white supremacy," claiming that "racial sickness is all around us." (I guess the one upside of the horror in South Carolina is that we can FINALLY have a national conversation about race.)

The media's WHITES ARE TERRORIZING BLACKS campaign reflects reality as accurately as the media's other campaign, WHITE MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE RAPING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!

In a country of more than 300 million people, everything will happen eventually. That doesn't make it a trend. Go up to any ordinary, sentient person and ask: Which race assaults the other race more?
Remember the "knockout game" -- or as its devotees called it, "polar bear hunting"? Black teenagers would go looking for white people to knock unconscious with a single punch, videotape the attacks and post them online. The knockout game was a real trend -- which the media denied was a trend.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), who won re-election in 2011 by a decisive margin but is still struggling to gain national attention, announced today he is running for president.

“My name is Bobby Jindal,” he began. “I am governor of the great state of Louisiana, and I am running for president of the greatest country in the world, the United States of America.”

Of course, and to put it generously, Jindal is a second-tier contender whose candidacy is unlikely to make a splash. He’s polling abysmally (although, in fairness, it’s still early) and all the big donors, it seems, are looking at other candidates.

Nevertheless, Jindal still feels he has something to offer the country that most of his rivals do not: experience as reform-minded governor.

“It was the aftermath of Katrina [and] our economy was locked in a downward spiral,” he said, recounting what were then his first few days as governor. “Our biggest city was reeling. For 25 straight years, more people had left the state than had moved into it. Louisiana was in big trouble, so we had to make big changes. We had to believe in Louisiana again — and that is exactly what we did.”

“We reformed our ethics laws,” he continued. “We went from one of the worst states, to one of the best states in the country; we privatized our outdated, government-run hospital system; we reformed education with nearly 100 percent charter schools in New Orleans; and now we have statewide school choice because every child deserves an equal opportunity for a great education.”

Unsurprisingly, however, he also tossed a major salvo at his fellow Republicans, all of whom are polling way better than him.

“None of them, not one, can match our record of actually shrinking the size of government,” he boasted. “If great speeches helped our country, we’d be on easy street right now.”

And yet, that obviously isn't the case. So taking the gloves off a little bit, he explicitly attacked a candidate who gives good speeches — but isn’t necessarily conservative enough to defeat the presumptive Democratic nominee.

“You’ve heard Jeb Bush say we need to be willing to lose the primary in order to win the general election,” he said. “Let me translate that political-speak into plain English: What Jeb Bush is saying is that we need to hide our conservative ideals."

"But the truth is, if we go down that road again, we will lose again," he added.

Finally, he discussed, among other things, saving and reforming America’s entitlement programs, implementing term limits, securing the US-Mexican border, and repealing and replacing Obamacare. He also drew contrasts between his results-oriented, conservative approach to governance — and the frustrating fecklessness we're now seeing on Capitol Hill.

“The emperors in Washington, they’re not wearing any clothes,” he averred to gaggles of laughter. “I am running for president without permission from headquarters in Washington, D.C. I am tanned, rested, and ready for this fight.”

Jindal, for his part, is the 13th Republican contender to officially launch a presidential bid.

Boston Marathon jihad murderer: “I am Muslim. My religion is Islam.”

Boston Marathon jihad murderer: “I am Muslim. My religion is Islam.” 

He apologized to the victims and the survivors, which was an odd thing for him to do if he believed that he was serving Allah in his jihad attack. His apology may, of course, have been a ploy to stave off the death sentence. “Tsarnaev apologizes for Boston Marathon bombing,” by Patricia Wen, Kevin Cullen, […]
