Philly black pols vow to favour hiring black construction workers
So much for ‘not by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character’

My old friend Jim McCaffrey reported this for the new Philadelphia Bulletin.

Here beginneth the crapfest:
‘This is a civil-rights issue...’

‘The city of Philadelphia’, Mayor-elect Michael Nutter affirmed, ‘will no longer accept economic apartheid in the building industry.’
Well and good if we’re talking about actual discrimination, but...
Last week, Council negotiated an amendment... demanding unions disclose their membership lists and the racial makeup of their membership before going to work on the Convention Center expansion.

The unions are also asked to commit to goals that would increase the racial makeup of workers to 40 per cent minorities.
Decent people don’t give a toss about the racial makeup of the builders; only the Klan, the Nazis (both groups of loser whites resorting to terrorism rather than compete fairly with blacks for jobs)... and the hard left with its stupid identity politics.

Also in the paper:

Pols play games with abortion
Democrats in Congress tried and failed to reverse the Mexico City Policy of not using tax money to pay for it abroad (so much for the racists at Planned Parenthood). Not doing so is great but what strikes me is nobody left or right is really trying to stop these murders at home.

Here the other shoe drops:
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, stated, ‘America is known for exporting many things, chief among them freedom and democracy. This victory ensures that America will not be known as an exporter of death.’
Never mind all those Iraqis your man Mr Bush had killed. And this is 100 per cent modern liberal doctrine politically. Ever hear of a war in Vietnam? Or does the name Alden Pyle ring a bell? Ever read The Quiet American? Do please then get back to me.

Just focus on the fœtus as long as he brings in the money and the votes. And just shut up and vote mainstream. We get it, Mr P.

Dr Paul gets it
Fresh off his record-breaking fund-raising effort, Texas Congressman Ron Paul ruffled some feathers during an appearance on ‘Fox and Friends’. Responding to a question concerning Mike Huckabee’s Christmas commercial where a bookshelf appears to have taken the form of a floating cross, Dr Paul is asked about the rôle of religion in politics.
Dr Paul answered:
It reminds me... of what Sinclair Lewis once said. He said when fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. And I don’t know if it’s a fair assessment or not but you wonder about using a cross like he is the only Christian, or implying that subtly... so I don’t think I would ever use anything like that.
In his Pennsylvanian Lutheran upbringing he learnt that taking God’s name in vain is a sin.

BTW a saintly Roman Catholic couple I’m acquainted with worked for the old Bulletin from the 1950s until it shut down in the 1980s (TV killed evening newspapers just like the Internet should take a big bite out of TV costly theatre news). To this day they don’t buy the Inquirer! Another old Bulletin worker is now the composing-room chief at the small-town paper I work for.
