Of Apes and Men

Unless your Memorial Day plans included backpacking to the inner wilds of Bora Bora, you’ve doubtless heard about the little kid who managed to get into the gorilla enclosure, which cost Harambe, a 17 year old zoo-raised gorilla, his life. Since then the death of this unfortunate primate has taken precedence over just about everything. Predictably, the animal rights activists are bemoaning the fact the animal was destroyed. And just as I’m one of those cynical old racists who, when he reads about a violent crime being committed, first assumes the perp doesn’t exactly look like me, so the victim class who sees racism behind every tree, they assumed it was a white kid the Gorilla was killed to save.

There are an awful lot of people who ended up with egg on their face late Monday.

The Daily Mail revealed Facebook photos of the couple who they reported as the parents of the inquisitive little four-year-old boy who fell into the gorilla habitat Saturday, resulting in the shooting death of the gorilla in order to save the life of the child.

This happened at the Cincinnati Zoo, and one of the zoo-goers captured heart-pounding video of the boy’s life-and-death struggle with the gorilla.

Liberals and Black Lives Matter activists took to social media to call the shooting of the gorilla an act of racism — killing a gorilla to save a white kid.

The boy’s mother thanked everyone on her Facebook page for their prayers and support:

Yes, it turned out that both parents of the boy are African-American. In the initial videos, it was hard to determine the race of the child. Not that anyone other than the race-baiters would even care to do so.

Meet the boy’s mother, Michelle Gregg, 32, who has three additional children by father Deonne Dickerson, 36.

Apparently having four children is not a motivation for getting married. I suspect if they did they’d lose some of the government handouts they live on.

Criminal filings against Dickerson stretch over a decade and include burglary, firearms offences, drug trafficking, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and kidnap.

In 2006 he was sentenced to one year behind bars for a drug trafficking conviction.

But in numerous pictures posted on Dickerson’s Facebook site in recent years he appears to have turned his life around to become the proud father of four.

She has been the subject of sharp criticism following the incident that saw zoo staff shoot dead Harambe who, according to new video footage, may have been protecting rather than threatening the child after he crawled through a barrier and fell into the gorilla’s enclosure.

More outraged animal lovers took to social media declaring the western lowland gorilla’s life was unnecessarily taken, and more than 290,000 have already joined ‘Justice for Harambe’ which place the blame squarely on the boy’s parents.

Welcome to the Summer: 69 People Shot In Chicago Over Memorial Day Weekend, 6 Killed

An aspiring rapper charged for a deadly shooting at a T.I. concert in New York has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and is claiming he was the victim.

Roland (Troy Ave) Collins’ lawyer said his client should be treated like the ‘real victim’, even though there is video of him shooting at patrons during a gig at Irving Place on Wednesday. The footage also seems to show him shooting himself in the leg.

The chaos that unfolded in the middle of the event led to one man being shot dead and three others, including a 26-year-old model, being wounded.

Police say his charges could be upgraded to murder if ballistics tests confirm that he was the one who shot Ronald McPhatter dead.

Collins is being held without bail.

    Emanuel on pension veto: ‘Rauner just told every Chicago taxpayer to take a hike’

    HERE IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF ILLINOIS DEMOCRATS HAVE RUN UP A $111BILLION DEFICIT DUE LARGELY TO UNFUNDED PUBLIC UNION PENSIONS WHICH ARE,BY ANY STRETCH,MORE THAN GENEROUS.NOW COMES A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR,BRUCE RAUNER,TRYING TO RESTORE SOME FISCAL SANITY.HIS VETO OF AN IMMENSE TAX-RAISING BUDGET WAS JUST OVERRIDDEN BY MIKE MADIGAN,THE REAL POWER IN THIS STATE.

    But it was the governor’s late-afternoon thrashing of Emanuel’s long-sought pension bill that caused the biggest stir. Lawmakers approved the bill a year ago Monday, but they didn’t send it to Rauner until late March out of fear he would veto it amid the partisan stalemate over the state budget.

    Over the short term, the bill would have reduced how much taxpayers contribute to the retirement funds by hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But that delay would come at a cost of billions of dollars over the long haul. By paying less upfront, the city would see its pension debt continue to grow.

    PUT ANOTHER WAY:
    Chicago gets some pension relief as Rauner veto overridden
    The House voted 72-43 to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of the savings plan, which trumps state law that required the city to pump $4.62 billion into retirement accounts for police officers and firefighters through 2020.

    The huge payments could have forced a $300 million property tax increase, Mayor Rahm Emanuel had warned. But Rauner countered that shorting payments will cost an extra $18.6 billion in interest during the next 40 years.

    The House quickly followed the Senate in reversing the first-term governor, a businessman who has pounced on the issue of Illinois’ woeful pension funding — in municipal as well as state accounts — since he was a candidate.

    The city’s police and fire funds are $12 billion short of what’s needed to cover current and future obligations. Chronic underfunding over the decades is largely to blame, as it is responsible for the $111 billion shortfall Illinois faces in its state-employee accounts. Rauner saw the legislation as another means of delaying the pain accompanying fiscal balance.

    Sanders on Clinton Email Scandal: Superdelegates Will Keep It in Mind

    UH,EARTH TO BERNIE….
    LISTEN,YOU DODDERING OLD HACK,THE SUPER DELEGATES WERE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR LONG BEFORE ANYBODY KNEW WHO THE HELL YOU WERE.YOU’RE ONLY IN THIS RACE SO IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THE COMPLETE SHAM IT REALLY IS.
    Frankly, what I think is that people in the Democratic process want a real debate about the real issues,” he said, after laying out his platform. “Now, you’re right. The Inspector General just came out with a report. It was not a good report for Secretary Clinton. That is something that the American people, Democrats and delegates are going to have to take a hard look at.”

    Valerie Jarrett Opens Anti-Christian Office For “Outreach”

    The new Muslim preference program is under the oversight, as one might have guessed, of Iranian Muslim Valerie Jarrett. Her position with the regime is the nondescript and covertly anti-white Christian nondescript “Senior Adviser and Assistant to the ‘president’ for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement.” That can mean anything they want to pretend it does or nothing at all. Naming it more directly with something such as the Office of Eliminating Christians and White Folks was too obvious.
    A head count on the Office of Public Engagement photos show 5 of 30 employees to be white males, one of them being Jewish. The others four, liberal Democrats, may or more likely do not hold any Christian religious preference.

    The other part of Jarrett’s nonsensical job title, the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs has even less representation of white males, with only Jarrett’s number two man, fitting that description out of ten additional employees. Included in the ten is her own Huma, Huma Shah, as a Special Assistant. Her trail leads back to the Muslim Brotherhood cesspool of Homeland Security.

    Fox News Chris Wallace Loses It With Dem Congressman Over Clinton Emails

    PISSY CHRISSY FINALLY GETS A BELLY FULL OF THIS ASSHOLES CRAP
    Rep. Adam Schiff and “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace clashed on Sunday over a watchdog report released last week that showed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton didn’t comply with rules set by the State Department. “She was mistaken. She thought it was approved, and the practice was allowed, and she was wrong,” Schiff said about Clinton’s use of a personal email server during her tenure as secretary of State.

    People Who Think They Can Get Away With Things

    Some people view Huma as the tragic figure in this documentary, which was made by filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg and deserves to win an Oscar.

    I don’t see it that way. I view Huma as a woman who is drawn to people like Hillary Clinton and Anthony Weiner. They think they can get away with things—and so does Huma.

    You will recall that Huma drew a salary of $135,000 a year as a “special” employee of Hillary’s State Department while at the same time she was on the payroll of the Clinton Foundation and Teneo, a firm founded by a former Bill Clinton operative.
