Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on February 14, 2013 by Allahpundit

Occupy Los Angeles has chosen to honor Chris Dorner in the wake of his death, despite the body count he apparently amassed…

The statement of support and solidarity was posted on the Occupy Los Angeles’ official Facebook page Wednesday. The statement came in the form of a posted picture captioned with the phrases “Rest In Power Chris Dorner” and “Assassinated By The Police for Trying To Expose LAPD Corruption.”

***

The “We Stand With Christopher Dorner” Facebook page had drawn almost 22,000 likes Thursday afternoon. “We Are All Chris Dorner” drew 4,400…

Scott Talan (@talan), a professor of public communication at American University in Washington, told USA TODAY that some people have grudges against government, police or other authority and see a bit of themselves in Dorner…

He noted that social media make visible what some people say in private. “We can see the posts. We can see the tweets,” he said. “Before, they would have said these things in a car, in a bar, in a home, and no one else would have known.”

***

Online support for Dorner in the days since his rampage has crept out of the internet’s more extreme corners — where such perverse boosterism is commonplace — and into more mainstream venues. Dorner is now hailed as a kind of folk hero by some on the Chomsky-esque left and the Ron Paul right, who view the killer’s manifesto as an articulate indictment of the “police state” they have always opposed.

“This story has a lot of moving parts, thanks in large part to Dorner’s long manifesto,” said J.M. Berger, a journalist and expert on domestic extremism. “With the fragmentation of the media these days, people are more prone to selection bias — they pull out the parts of a story that resonate with them and ignore the parts they don’t like. This is really a common practice among extremists, but it’s creeping into the mainstream more and more.”

“The LAPD’s troubled history and continued bad reputation are also big factors here,” Berger said. “I think it’s difficult for a lot of people to root for the LAPD under any circumstances. But you really have to ignore big parts of Dorner’s story in order to cast him as Dirty Harry or Rambo, as many people have. Dirty Harry didn’t kill the daughters of people who got on his wrong side.”

***

It is important to remember that Dorner murdered a young woman and her fiancé simply because she was the daughter of a cop — the man who acted as Dorner’s defense advocate in the LAPD proceedings against him. But as one comment on a left-wing site noted, that was a good idea: If the cop had been murdered, he wouldn’t have suffered, but now that his daughter and her fiancé have been murdered, the cop will experience real pain until he dies.

Any public figure, and especially any member of the clergy, who does not unambiguously condemn Dorner as a psychopathic murderer is failing his or her duty. This is not the time to discuss allegations of racism in the Los Angeles Police Department. For one thing, being wrongfully dismissed from a job — if, indeed, that is what happened to Dorner — inhabits a different moral universe than murder. For another, the more the public pays attention to this murderer’s “manifesto,” the more murders-for-attention will take place…

What we have here is another proof that nothing leads to murder and other evils more than a sense of victimization.

Wow. You people really are insane. No insult intended. I just hadn’t realized how sincerely fanatical you are. I had chalked up the earlier Sarah Palin froth to political passions. But that’s not it. Clearly, it’s deeper and creepier than that. Remarkable.
Murf76 on February 14, 2013 at 6:01 PM

Yep, exactly. It IS weird. My problem is not with Palin (though I don’t see her as the most competent, articulate, serious politician out there); my problem is more with her cultist followers who attack any Republican not named Palin. They have been conditioned by radio hosts like Mark Levin to believe she is the only “True Conservative” out there. Go ahead and ask some of these people which potential candidates besides Palin they would support for President. They can’t and won’t give an answer. And Palin isn’t even going to run, leaving these people to do nothing but whine about whoever DOES run, calling them “Establishment” RINO’s who have been “forced” on them and whose supporters have victimized poor little ol’ Sarah.

They did it to Mitt. They did it to Paul Ryan. They did it to Bachmann and Perry, and they are doing it to Rubio now. Any sane person would understand the need the look at who actually is running and support the person who best represents your values, even if you dont agree with the candidate 100% of the time, and who you think has the best chance to win. But these people won’t do that. They will whine nonstop like babies about their choices, pretending like some nefarious “establishment” conspiracy forced a candidate on them, when in fact it is primary voters themselves who choose nominees!

Sorry to say, but Palinista cultists like ddrintn have one mode and one mode only: whine and moan about “the establishment” with a “I know you are but what am I” tone, without ever actually saying anything new or actually expressing any support whatsoever for ANYONE who is actually running. They love being naysayers, something that is easy to do.

Then you have Palinista cultists like the emoticon-addicted idesign. This little character pops up and insults anyone on the Internet who denies the greatest of Queen Sarah. Go ahead and google “idesign” and “Palin” and prepare to be amazed at her trail of comments.

Just as Justin Bieber has fanatical supporters of mostly teen girls known as Beliebers who fight on his behalf on Internet comment boards everywhere, Sarah Palin has her (dwindling) army of Palinistas. Seriously, that is about at the level we’re dealing with when it comes to these people.

Palin herself has encouraged the divisiveness, and she benefits financially from it. Mark Levin, likewise, often does more harm than good.

Yes, Sarah Palin’s influence has greatly diminished in the last few years, not just because of unfair media treatment, but also because of her own failures and bad decisions. Honestly, it is for the best that Palin was let go from Fox and commands far less attention from the news media than she used to. She was always far from our brightest conservative light, and she never really had any business being the public face of conservatism nor of the Republican Party.

===========================

ASTEROID FLYBY:
***************

At 2:25 p.m. EST (19:25 UTC) on Friday, Feb. 15th, asteroid 2012 DA14 will fly past Earth only 17,200 miles above our planet’s surface.

This will put it well inside the orbit of geosynchronous satellites,

closer than any asteroid of the same size has come since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s. Researchers speculate that Earth’s gravity might even cause seismic activity on the 50m-wide space rock. Click to view a computer simulation of the flyby, courtesy of NASA:

During the hours around closest approach, the asteroid will brighten until it resembles a star of 8th magnitude. Theoretically, that’s an easy target for backyard telescopes. The problem is speed. The asteroid will be racing across the sky, moving almost a full degree (or twice the width of a full Moon) every minute. That’s going to be hard to track. Only the most experienced amateur astronomers are likely to succeed. For the rest of us, NASA will broadcast the asteroid’s flyby on NASA TV.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 is about the same size as previous asteroids responsible for the Meteor Crater in Arizona and the Tunguska Event in Siberia. Unlike those objects, however, 2012 DA14 will not hit Earth. Even if seismic activity breaks the asteroid apart, there is no danger; the fragments would continue along the same non-intersecting path as the original asteroid.

The people who keep trying to take the focus off Dorner’s murderous acts by trying to put the focus on, and by trying to legitimize, his LAPD hatred are like the people who said of Osama, “well, Al Qaeda is acting just as anyone would. We, the evil USA, killed their people for years, so their backlash against us is understandable. We had it coming. The lesson to be learned here is that we are a bad country.”

It is important to remember that Dorner murdered a young woman and her fiancé simply because she was the daughter of a cop — the man who acted as Dorner’s defense advocate in the LAPD proceedings against him.

For me, the story began with this fact and leapfrogged to the hope that he died a long and miserable death. He was a despicable coward.

I hope LA and surrounding areas sue his estate for whatever he left to offset a fraction of the tab he ran up.

I’ve seen this happen too. In my experience, it generally seems that they can’t quite comprehend the idea that any intelligent person could possibly disagree. So if they are in a group of peers or people they respect, they tend to just assume that you must agree with them, and so it’s their way of bonding with you.

Yes, I know it’s strange, and rather creepy, but this is their way of being friendly. They are simply that insulated and out of touch that they cannot comprehend that you, this seemingly pleasant and intelligent person, could hold such barbaric opinions.

esr1951 on February 15, 2013 at 6:39 AM

I should add, the most satisfying way to shut these people up is to treat them in kind. Immediately give a forceful and controlled, yet slightly angry rebuttal, but phrased as though you are taking for granted that they either are already in agreement, or are at least indifferent. And it works best if the very first part of your rant is something you know they’ll agree with, just to get them nodding their heads. once ghey start, its very frustrating for them to find a way to stop you. (a great way to do this is to start off by tellin them mainstream democrats are craven – they’ll eat that up until they realize, too late, that you’re taking them in the opposite direction than they thought).

For example: when some liberal acquaintance goes off on how deceptive those tricksy republicans were, tricking the gullible democrats and American sheeple into going into Iraq, don’t bother trying to defend the republicans. Instead, since they’ve turned the discussion to Iraq, use it to discuss how breath-takingly cynical the democrats were during that period. Then, when you’ve got them nodding their heads, you bring down the hammer: “every last one of these charlatans was warning about WMDs in the 1990s, and they had the audacity to claim Bush made it all up. What to they think, that the rest of us slept through the 1990′s? And don’t get me started on MSNBC… How stupid do the democrats think we are?”

Drag them onto our team whether they like it or not, and then let THEM try to defend their absurd positions. Put THEM in the awkward position of having to disagree with YOU.

Back on topic, I hope it’s confirmed to be Dorner. God only knows how many asian grandmas and skinny white dudes LAPD will have to shoot if it’s not./

Also, proofreading comments before submitting them is for effeminate RINO whores of the Establishment.

Of course the irony was that this occurred in a library in a community with maybe 300 inhabitants. Yet her perceptions of the world were clearly superior.

esr1951 on February 15, 2013 at 7:11 AM

Well of course they were! Those 300 yokels were depending on her vast and deep knowledge and wisdom and library skillz to guide their limited minds into enlightenment! She had a calling!

It has been confirmed. Last night, via dental records.
No cause of death, yet.

Dr. Hill proves that you can have a pHd and still be an idiot…

You should meet some of the natives in the Big Apple.

If it ain’t one of the five boroughs, it is the wild frontier.

PHD’s outside of medicine are only an indication of a lengthy stay in an academic enviroment. Not much else.

Jabberwock on February 15, 2013 at 8:07 AM

BOR was certainly on the warpath last night and committed war on women. Too bad he didn’t save some of that vitriol for Hill. Hill’s phd (small letters on purpose) is in urban studies. Too bad he doesn’t use some of his smarts doing studies in Chicago to put a stop to the killings there.

I’d be happy if they buried Dorner right beside Bradley Manning.

What? Manning hasn’t been executed for treason yet?

I can wait.

BigAlSouth on February 15, 2013 at 8:35 AM

If Al Sharpton had a son, he’d look like Mark Lamont Hill.

Yes, but this was Mulberry, Indiana! 2010 census showed 1200 people live there. I guess small towns have their snobs too.

Initial reports say it was a combination of lead poisoning and an extremely high fever.

Absolutely ! We even have some here at HA.
And they are pretty proud of it.
Check out postings from “Urban Elitist” when it appears.

Newsflash: If there are any “cultists” on this site – you are it.

The Cult of Unmitigated and Unsubstantiated HATE and CONTEMPT for Sarah Palin.

Sadly, this is still the chat room for those who have nothing to say on topic.

Michelle is awesome… And poor Chrissy… he would be on the air praising the leftist mob as they take over his studio in a violent rampage…

What a relief the skunk was killed instead of hanging around for high publicity trials where whites, conservatives, Republicans,the Tea Party, Americans, a “corrupt and bigoted” society and Bush–in short EVERYBODY EXCEPT THE MURDERING SKUNK would bear the blame for his killing spree.

Spare me the psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists and self appointed black spokespersons who would bombard television with an endless drivel about our “sick society”causing the milieu (yep I was a psych major) out of which Dorner, the “victim”, was spawned.

A dead skunk is a quickly forgotten skunk.

MaiDee on February 15, 2013 at 2:11 PM

Wow. You people really are insane. No insult intended. I just hadn’t realized how sincerely fanatical you are. I had chalked up the earlier Sarah Palin froth to political passions. But that’s not it. Clearly, it’s deeper and creepier than that. Remarkable.

Murf76 on February 14, 2013 at 6:01 PM

Yep, exactly. It IS weird. My problem is not with Palin (though I don’t see her as the most competent, articulate, serious politician out there); my problem is more with her cultist followers who attack any Republican not named Palin.

bluegill on February 15, 2013 at 5:49 AM

I see you two have finally met.

Now I’ll have to go kneel before my “Sarah altar”, and pray for forgiveness for your respective souls.
