Could it be that one of my fondest wishes is about to come true? According to the Al Jazeera-Constitution (er, excuse me, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution – can’t imagine how I made that mistake), Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney may be arrested soon for her part in a recent incident during which she allegedly struck a Capitol Police officer who tried to stop her from going around a security checkpoint.
I relish this since I am one of her many long-suffering constituents, which is to say I am a resident of her Congressional district who isn’t among the brain-damaged minions who actually voted for this severely disturbed woman.
First things first. McKinney is said to have hit a Capitol Police officer in the chest when he stopped her from entering the building without going through a metal detector. As usual, and ever thumbing her nose at authority, she wasn’t wearing a lapel pin identifying her as a House member.
Not wearing that pin doesn’t sound like a particularly big deal, but for most of her other colleagues, it’s not too big a concession to make to “the Man” in exchange for security that could possibly save their lives. But then, most of her colleagues aren’t hopeless racial victimhood addicts whose immutable perception of “the Man” involves white robes and pointed hoods.
McKinney’s lawyer, James Myart Jr., whose every word was as predictable as the movements of the stars in the firmament, said that “Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black.”
I don’t want to say that strains credulity, but if anybody is really being mistreated for “being in Congress while black,” then one would expect to see members of the Congressional Black Caucus getting gang-tackled on a regular basis by racist security officers. Funny, no video or evidence of such incidents have surfaced.
“Congresswoman McKinney,” Myart said further, “in a hurry, was essentially chased and grabbed by the officer. She reacted instinctively in an effort to defend herself.”
The problem with McKinney “reacting instinctively” is that the Congresswoman is a walking, talking bundle of racial paranoia and emotional pathologies on an interminable hunt for any excuse to accuse someone of racism. So eaten up with this malady is she that she once said that “Al Gore’s Negro tolerance level has never been too high. I’ve never seen him around more than one at a time.” I don’t know what the context was, but is it even possible there could have been a context in which that statement was anything other than crazy?
One can only imagine what important business she was in such a rush to get to when security stopped her. Here’s a couple of examples of the kinds of urgent matters she’s dealt with for the American people in the last year or so:
1) She chaired a Congressional hearing last year “on whether the Bush administration was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.”
2) She introduced into the House of Representatives the Tupac Shakur Records Release Act of 2006 “for the purpose of fully informing the American people about the history surrounding the life and death of [gangsta rapper] Tupac Amaru Shakur.”
So naturally, you can see the urgency of the kinds of things McKinney is constantly working on, such as enlightening the American people about the fact that their president knowingly allowed 9/11 to happen in order to enrich his defense industry buddies. Or trying to convince them that Tupac was anything other than a despicable criminal who happened to be able to rhyme some words to a drum beat.
In addition, she has long been known for things like advocating for disastrous Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe, who ran white farmers off their land, turning the country from a breadbasket into a basket case; cozying up with and receiving campaign donations from all kinds of terrorist sympathizers; indulging in the anti-Jewish hatefest at an infamous conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 even after the U.S. withdrew most of its participation; and for having a blatantly anti-Semitic father in the Georgia State Legislature whose prejudices just may have rubbed off on her.
And that’s just scratching the surface. Think of any position on any issue that the vast majority of Americans would be appalled by and it’s a lead pipe cinch she’s for it. Or name something that most Americans would be in favor of and, yep, she’s against it. Just as a random for instance, she voted against the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act,” a bill that suggested that if during a “partial-birth abortion,” a nearly-born infant slipped out of its mother before actually being aborted, it acquired the rights of a person and could no longer be killed.
Notwithstanding her egregious record, it could very well be the case that whatever she did in the incident with the Capitol Police wasn’t really that serious. If that’s the case, don’t worry, she’ll get out of it without any serious legal consequences. But if a molehill can be made into a big enough mountain to get her voted out of office later this year, I’ll be one happy resident of the Fourth District of Georgia.Powered by Sidelines
