Pennsylvania's Police Chief Mark Kessler Has A Tiny Penis

The title of my post is not intended to be inflammatory or derogatory but instead merely a proposed hypothetical to explain an action or behavior. What reason could a man have to be so angry and full of vitriol? Why would a man need to use such infantile hurtful words and hurl sad pathetic homophobic slurs? I present to you a case study in misplaced anger.... The case of one Mr. Mark Kessler.

Mark Kessler, police chief of Gilberton Burough and a member of the North Schuylkill school board has taken to the You Tubes to fire off some angry commentary about the "libtards who take it in the ass" that supposedly want to take away all his guns.

Here is a small sample of Kessler's regrettable diatribe…

"Fuck all you libtards out there ... yous take it in the ass, I don't give a fuck what you say, so you can all go fuck yourselves. Period."

Someone call Mensa.

Here is the full video in which you can plainly witness that officer Kessler's behavior reeks of small penis...

After officer Kessler's adolescent video tantrum seemed to achieve the reaction he had hoped for (ie anger) he then made a video in which he offers a somewhat less than sincere "sorry" for "hurting feelings,". Kessler then seemingly delights (a little too much I might add) by shooting off many rounds of ammunition from several automatic assault weapons.

Here is the full video and what I believe is overwhelming and definitive proof that Mark Kessler is endowed with what they call in the medical profession a "micro-penis"….

According to the local paper Kessler has also organized a volunteer group called the Constitutional Security Force. Considering his condition one would not find this surprising in the slightest. According to Kessler his group doesn't consider itself to be a militia but it has vowed to take up arms to protect against tyranny. I feel that if this "security force" were instead turned into group therapy that it would be a more advantageous use of Mr. Kessler's time but that is merely one man's opinion.

As per the videos many local residents  have reportedly raised concerns with town officials and at least one borough councilman has called the videos "unacceptable" for a police chief. Gilberton's gutless Mayor, Mary Lou Hannon, noted that Kessler's actions came during his "free time," and said it would be "terribly inappropriate to comment". In addition Mary Lou stated that she wouldn't want to "impede its employees' First Amendment rights,"

As of this time there are no plans to reprimand Kessler.

Let's all hope Mr. Kessler receives the help he so desperately needs. There are many treatment options available to him as far as penile augmentation is concerned that would thereby disavail him of the need to use firearms which is, as we can plainly see, a wholly inadequate substitute for his obvious shortcomings.

President Obama's Speech On Trayvon Martin Sends The Right Into A Screaming Hate-gasm

In my last post I put up the complete transcript of President Obama's speech he gave yesterday concerning the murder of Trayvon Martin and the effects the case and it's verdict has had on America.

My reason behind posting President Obama's entire speech was that there were so many insane responses from prominent right wing pundits and writers that I wanted the word for word transcript here so people could cheek it against the alternate reality that was being peddled.

Now I will post the aforementioned hate filled quotes that the right wing/conservative/republican/racists believe were proper responses to the Presidents speech... Believe me when I say this is only a partial list.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Greg Jarrett from Fox News' "America Live":

"Is The President Reducing Racial Tension Or Stoking Racial Tension?"

"Doesn't the president now run the risk that he is going to provoke even more demonstrations, and let's hope not, but potential violence?"


Sean Hannity of Fox News':

"The president said Trayvon could have been me 35 years ago. This is a particularly helpful comment. I guess that's the President admitting he was part of the 'choom gang' and he smoked pot, and he did a little blow. I not sure how to interpret that because we know Trayvon had been smoking pot that night"


Brad Blakeman Fox News guest and commentator:

"The President should have never injected himself to begin with. This had nothing to do with race, the President knows there are demonstrations happening this weekend and if anything the President Incited Any Violence That Takes Place over this weekend by his comments that race was somehow involved"


Todd Starnes of Fox News':

"Race-Baiter In Chief"

"I thought when you got elected president - you were president of all skin colors":

"Obama's comments today justify what I said on Hannity earlier this week. He truly is trying to tear our country apart."

"President Obama today is being very unpresidential"

"His remarks today on the Trayvon Martin tragedy are beyond reprehensible."

 

Tammy Bruce, conservative radio host and Fox News contributor:

"So Obama 'could have been' Trayvon 35 yrs ago? I had no idea Obama sucker-punched a watch volunteer & then bashed his head in. Who knew?":

 

Pamela Geller, blogger, political activist known primarily for her criticism of Islam:

I know we must suffer this buffoon his on the job training but is there not a shred of decency in him? Is there not one iota of responsibility, or conscience, or goodness to this Jeremiah Wright disciple? He is inciting instead of calming , which is what a leader does.They picked the wrong case to exploit to their own racist ends and still he and his thugocracy persist in spite of the facts.

What an ugly transformation he has orchestrated. It is shocking. His sanction"Every F***ing Cop Is A Target", of the mindless violence, the beatings of innocent people in the name of Trayvon, is sedition. But predicted: The Post-American Presidency:  The Obama Administration's War on America.

His flapping tongue is too eager to publicly lynch Geroge Zimmerman but strangley silent on Banghazi, the IRS war on patriots, Fast and Furious, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc. Obama's flapping tongue is strangley silent on the hundreds of young balck men murdered by black men. Obama's flapping tongue is strangley silent on the failure of Trayvon Martin's parents. [AtlasShrugs.com, 7/19/13]

 

Eric Bolling of Fox News:

"I thought Obama would have more in common with Trayvon Martin "because they both smoked pot when they were kids"


Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large of Breitbart.com:

"Shorter Obama: Look At Me! America Is Racist."

"Obama helped ignite this ginned up racial melee by saying his son would look like Trayvon. Now he says he could have been Trayvon."

"MSNBC: America is racist because our black president says so."


Dana Loesch, conservative talk show host:

"It’s a combo protest diversion from scandals and attempt to weaken laws protecting right to self defense."

 

Joel Pollak, Breitbart.com Editor-In-Chief:

"Obama Backs The Race-Baiters On The Eve Of Sharptonpalooza. Identity Politics Above All. Shameful."

 

John Nolte, Breitbart.com columnist:

"Shorter Obama: I'm A Twice-Elected Black President Living In A Racist Country."

"I like living in a country where a black president elected twice complains about racism."

 

Dan Riehl, conservative blogger:

"If you ever had any doubts, Obama is the first Racist in Chief"

 

Emily Miller of the Washington Times:

"Obama Is The Most Irresponsible Presidnet [Sic] In History. Now we're having national debates about hypotheticals"

 

Dana Loesch, conservative talk radio host, CNN contributor:

"It's A Combo Protest Diversion From Scandals And Attempt To Weaken Laws Protecting Right To Self Defense."

 

Jim Hoft, TheGatewayPundit.com:

"Good Lord - He's stoking a race war."

 

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL):

"President Obama is making this all about race. All. About. Race."

 

Republican strategist Brian Walsh:

Remarkable that the President of the United States continues to fan the flames on George Zimmerman. ‪#StopTalkingSir‬

 

Right Sphere, senior fellow RB Pundit:

Obama said he could have been Trayvon. How many hispanic heads has Obama bashed into concrete?

 

David Limbaugh, conservative columnist:

Did Trayvon commit assault w/ intent to kill? Do we have to overlook, even glorify that in lamenting his death? Yet Obama identifies w/ him?

Anyone who has seen this before knows that these remarks denote a classic case of what we call "Obama Derangement Syndrome".

President Obama's Speech On Trayvon Martin

Here is the complete transcript of the powerful and moving speech President Obama gave today on the murder of Trayvon Martin and the effects the case and it's verdict has had on America.

Due to the vile, vitriolic, ignorant, hate filled responses I have heard about the speech I wanted to post the entire word for word transcript here so people can read just how even tempered and insightful the President words were today.

If you were to judge by his detractors one might believe he was inciting violent riots by "race baiting" and/or being an outright "racist". If you read (or watch) the speech in it's entirety you will clearly see that nothing could be further from the truth.

I will post the aforementioned hate filled responses later.

* I have also posted the video of the entire speech at the bottom of the page.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

1:33 P.M. EDT

     THE PRESIDENT:  I wanted to come out here, first of all, to tell you that Jay is prepared for all your questions and is very much looking forward to the session.  The second thing is I want to let you know that over the next couple of weeks, there’s going to obviously be a whole range of issues -- immigration, economics, et cetera -- we'll try to arrange a fuller press conference to address your questions.

     The reason I actually wanted to come out today is not to take questions, but to speak to an issue that obviously has gotten a lot of attention over the course of the last week -- the issue of the Trayvon Martin ruling.  I gave a preliminary statement right after the ruling on Sunday.  But watching the debate over the course of the last week, I thought it might be useful for me to expand on my thoughts a little bit.

     First of all, I want to make sure that, once again, I send my thoughts and prayers, as well as Michelle’s, to the family of Trayvon Martin, and to remark on the incredible grace and dignity with which they’ve dealt with the entire situation.  I can only imagine what they’re going through, and it’s remarkable how they’ve handled it.

     The second thing I want to say is to reiterate what I said on Sunday, which is there’s going to be a lot of arguments about the legal issues in the case -- I'll let all the legal analysts and talking heads address those issues.  The judge conducted the trial in a professional manner.  The prosecution and the defense made their arguments.  The juries were properly instructed that in a case such as this reasonable doubt was relevant, and they rendered a verdict.  And once the jury has spoken, that's how our system works.  But I did want to just talk a little bit about context and how people have responded to it and how people are feeling.

You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.  And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.

There are very few African American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store.  That includes me.  There are very few African American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars.  That happens to me -- at least before I was a senator.  There are very few African Americans who haven't had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.  That happens often.

And I don't want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African American community interprets what happened one night in Florida.  And it’s inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear.  The African American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws -- everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws.  And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.

Now, this isn't to say that the African American community is naïve about the fact that African American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system; that they’re disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence.  It’s not to make excuses for that fact -- although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context.  They understand that some of the violence that takes place in poor black neighborhoods around the country is born out of a very violent past in this country, and that the poverty and dysfunction that we see in those communities can be traced to a very difficult history.

     And so the fact that sometimes that’s unacknowledged adds to the frustration.  And the fact that a lot of African American boys are painted with a broad brush and the excuse is given, well, there are these statistics out there that show that African American boys are more violent -- using that as an excuse to then see sons treated differently causes pain.

     I think the African American community is also not naïve in understanding that, statistically, somebody like Trayvon Martin was statistically more likely to be shot by a peer than he was by somebody else.  So folks understand the challenges that exist for African American boys.  But they get frustrated, I think, if they feel that there’s no context for it and that context is being denied. And that all contributes I think to a sense that if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario, that, from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.

     Now, the question for me at least, and I think for a lot of folks, is where do we take this?  How do we learn some lessons from this and move in a positive direction?  I think it’s understandable that there have been demonstrations and vigils and protests, and some of that stuff is just going to have to work its way through, as long as it remains nonviolent.  If I see any violence, then I will remind folks that that dishonors what happened to Trayvon Martin and his family.  But beyond protests or vigils, the question is, are there some concrete things that we might be able to do.

I know that Eric Holder is reviewing what happened down there, but I think it’s important for people to have some clear expectations here.  Traditionally, these are issues of state and local government, the criminal code.  And law enforcement is traditionally done at the state and local levels, not at the federal levels.

     That doesn’t mean, though, that as a nation we can’t do some things that I think would be productive.  So let me just give a couple of specifics that I’m still bouncing around with my staff, so we’re not rolling out some five-point plan, but some areas where I think all of us could potentially focus.

     Number one, precisely because law enforcement is often determined at the state and local level, I think it would be productive for the Justice Department, governors, mayors to work with law enforcement about training at the state and local levels in order to reduce the kind of mistrust in the system that sometimes currently exists.

     When I was in Illinois, I passed racial profiling legislation, and it actually did just two simple things.  One, it collected data on traffic stops and the race of the person who was stopped.  But the other thing was it resourced us training police departments across the state on how to think about potential racial bias and ways to further professionalize what they were doing.

And initially, the police departments across the state were resistant, but actually they came to recognize that if it was done in a fair, straightforward way that it would allow them to do their jobs better and communities would have more confidence in them and, in turn, be more helpful in applying the law.  And obviously, law enforcement has got a very tough job.

So that’s one area where I think there are a lot of resources and best practices that could be brought to bear if state and local governments are receptive.  And I think a lot of them would be.  And let's figure out are there ways for us to push out that kind of training.

Along the same lines, I think it would be useful for us to examine some state and local laws to see if it -- if they are designed in such a way that they may encourage the kinds of altercations and confrontations and tragedies that we saw in the Florida case, rather than diffuse potential altercations.

I know that there's been commentary about the fact that the "stand your ground" laws in Florida were not used as a defense in the case.  On the other hand, if we're sending a message as a society in our communities that someone who is armed potentially has the right to use those firearms even if there's a way for them to exit from a situation, is that really going to be contributing to the kind of peace and security and order that we'd like to see?

And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these "stand your ground" laws, I'd just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?  And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman who had followed him in a car because he felt threatened?  And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we might want to examine those kinds of laws.

Number three -- and this is a long-term project -- we need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African American boys.  And this is something that Michelle and I talk a lot about.  There are a lot of kids out there who need help who are getting a lot of negative reinforcement.  And is there more that we can do to give them the sense that their country cares about them and values them and is willing to invest in them?

I'm not naïve about the prospects of some grand, new federal program.  I'm not sure that that’s what we're talking about here. But I do recognize that as President, I've got some convening power, and there are a lot of good programs that are being done across the country on this front.  And for us to be able to gather together business leaders and local elected officials and clergy and celebrities and athletes, and figure out how are we doing a better job helping young African American men feel that they're a full part of this society and that they've got pathways and avenues to succeed -- I think that would be a pretty good outcome from what was obviously a tragic situation.  And we're going to spend some time working on that and thinking about that. 


And then, finally, I think it's going to be important for all of us to do some soul-searching.  There has been talk about should we convene a conversation on race.  I haven't seen that be particularly productive when politicians try to organize conversations.  They end up being stilted and politicized, and folks are locked into the positions they already have.  On the other hand, in families and churches and workplaces, there's the possibility that people are a little bit more honest, and at least you ask yourself your own questions about, am I wringing as much bias out of myself as I can?  Am I judging people as much as I can, based on not the color of their skin, but the content of their character?  That would, I think, be an appropriate exercise in the wake of this tragedy.

     And let me just leave you with a final thought that, as difficult and challenging as this whole episode has been for a lot of people, I don’t want us to lose sight that things are getting better.  Each successive generation seems to be making progress in changing attitudes when it comes to race.  It doesn’t mean we’re in a post-racial society.  It doesn’t mean that racism is eliminated.  But when I talk to Malia and Sasha, and I listen to their friends and I seem them interact, they’re better than we are -- they’re better than we were -- on these issues.  And that’s true in every community that I’ve visited all across the country.

     And so we have to be vigilant and we have to work on these issues.  And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our nature, as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions.  But we should also have confidence that kids these days, I think, have more sense than we did back then, and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did; and that along this long, difficult journey, we’re becoming a more perfect union -- not a perfect union, but a more perfect union.

     Thank you, guys.

The Disgraceful Trayvon Martin Verdict Met With Peaceful Protests Across The Country (Pictures)

A powerful image from one of the many peaceful protests from across the country
After George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict was handed down in a Florida courtroom last Saturday night people across the country took to the streets in protest. From New York to Chicago to Washington DC to California people of all races creeds and colors voiced their disapproval with peaceful, lawful, powerful and righteous protests.

This of course was much to the chagrin of many conservative news outlets and their race baiting pundits who, with baited breath, predicted violent outbursts from the African American community.

The peaceful protests, that were carried out without a single arrest, crushed the violent fantasy scenario the racist hate mongers so desperately wanted and gave them nothing to report... except the travesty that was the trial's verdict.

Here are images of the peaceful protests from around the country...

No Justice For Trayvon (Pics)

We now have George Zimmerman, the Florida justice system and the Stand Your Ground law to thank for handing out a free pass to gun down black and brown men and boys.

According to the verdict reached at the Zimmerman trial if you are a black or brown person who wants to go to the store for a drink and some candy you can be shot down by absolutely anyone and all they have to do is say "He didn't belong in this neighborhood, we started fighting, I couldn't win the fight, so I had to shoot him in self defense".

What the verdict in this trial says is that if anyone finds a black or brown person (aka "suspicious") walking in their neighborhood they can stalk them, attack them and murder them free of charge.

What the verdict in this trial says is go out and pick yourself up a gun and become a member of your neighborhood watch group…. Then go hunting.

What the verdict in this trial says that if you are a black or brown person it is ok for anyone to racially profile you and track you down (even when the police tell them not to as was the case with Zimmerman) and shoot you through the heart.

What the verdict in this trial says is if you start a fight with anyone but can't win that fight it's ok to shoot the person dead.

What the verdict in this trial says is the "Stand Your Ground" law is a get out of jail free card if you want to stalk and murder, as George Zimmerman put it, one of those "…assholes (who) always get away” or one of those " …fucking punks," and claim you were acting in self-defense.

What the verdict in this trial says is that if Trayvon Martin had survived the shooting he would have been charged with attempted murder and would have been found guilty.

Know this: As you are reading this post Trayvon Martin's lifeless body is buried six feet deep and George Zimmerman already has the gun he used to kill him with back in his possession.

There is something wrong with this country...

Atheists Unveil First Of It's Kind Monument (Pics)

Last week a group of atheists unveiled what they believe is the first monument to their non-belief in God on government property in the United States. The monument is to sit alongside a granite slab that lists the Ten Commandments in front of the Bradford County courthouse.

The atheist believe that their monument serves as a counter to the religious Ten Commandments monument that it is sitting next to. Previously the Atheists sued to try to have the Ten Commandments slab taken from the courthouse. When that failed it came up during mediation on the case that the group could have its own monument if they so wished. So that is exactly what they did.

On the day of the unveiling of the monument a few small group of high minded and enlightened "believers" decided to voice their disapproval. They did this in several ingenious ways.

First they blasted Christian country music in hopes of stopping the proceedings.

When that failed to deter the Atheists the righteous group then took to waving "Honk for Jesus" signs at them.

Later another good Samaritan driving by in a car tossed a toilet seat and a roll of toilet paper at the crowd. Brilliant… Even I can grasp the subtle symbolism in that.

At another point a self proclaimed creationist preacher named Eric Hovind, 35, of Pensacola jumped on top of the monument and shouted his thanks to the atheists for giving him a platform to declare Jesus is real. He stepped down after about a minute.

There was even a a group from the Florida League of the South that had signs that declaring "Yankees Go Home" while they held Confederate flags.

Michael Tubbs, state chairman of the aforementioned Florida League of the South said "We reject outsiders coming to Floridaespecially from outside what we refer to as the Bible Beltand trying to remake us in their own image. We do feel like it's a stick in the eye to the Christian people of Florida to have these outsiders come down here with their money and their leadership and promote their outside values here."

Rick Wingrove, the director of a Washington D.C.-area office of American Atheists. "We protest their events, they protest our events. As long as everybody is cordial and let people speak... We're fine with them being here."

In an interesting note the 1,500-pound granite bench has quotes from Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the founder of American Atheists and also includes a list of Old Testament punishments for violating the Ten Commandments, including death by stoning... Maybe with a giant granite slab?

About 200 people attended the unveiling.

Here are a few pictures of the anti-Atheist protestors doing their thing...
