The party of police-haters
There's only one thing more damning than the recent caterwauling of cop-bashing Rep. Cynthia McKinney and her race-mongering mob:
The stone-cold silence of Beltway Democrats.
While McKinney and her ilk sling wild charges of racism and conspiracy at the police, national Dems have yet to utter one clear word in
defense of the men and women who protect their privileged backsides day in and day out in Washington.
But, hey, don't question their patriotism.
McKinney, who is black, is having the mother of all Beltway snit fits because, she claims, a white Capitol Hill police officer "inappropriately
touched" her last week. After asking her several times to stop when she traipsed around a security checkpoint without proper identification,
according to police accounts, the officer reportedly touched McKinney's arm or shoulder. In response, she struck the officer.
You know, Rep. McKinney, as a fellow "woman of color," I have been pulled aside by government security agents numerous times for
secondary screening at airports over the last few years. I've had my bra straps snapped, my thighs pawed, and my torso wanded. I've had my
cell phone tested for bomb residue, my laptop inspected, and my handbags manhandled.
My response was not to go postal or do a Naomi Campbell on the gropers. My response was to ask why they aren't doing more security
McKinney is spitting venom about "double standards" of justice. But if I had done what McKinney did to the police officer just doing his job,
I would be marking time in the slammer. Caught in an imperial act of lawlessness, McKinney is now conducting her own victim Olympics to
deflect blame and responsibility:
Lawyer James W. Myart Jr., called McKinney "a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of
how she looks and the color of her skin. Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black." Harry Belafonte and
Danny Glover, admittedly ignorant of what McKinney did on Capitol Hill, were on hand to add their tribal "uh-huhs" and
"amens" to the blanket condemnations of white police officers.
On Monday, an entire contingent of black leaders in Atlanta inveighed against law enforcement officers and lent McKinney
their unconditional political support at a meeting of the Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta in the Community
Church of God (hello, church-and-state separatists?). "Racial profiling is a well thought out and planned attack on black
political leaders," fumed state Rep. Alberta Abdul-Salaam. "It's going from the gold dome down to the White House. It's
happening and it's wrong."
Another instigated the crowd: "We know what time it is and that's why the most progressive of us are standing here. Because
we know that if you can come and get Cynthia today, you'll come and get us tomorrow." Yet another McKinney supporter
rattled his tinfoil and asserted: "I believe this incident with Cynthia McKinney is a set upÖI say the politicizing of this event was
planned and staged! They decided to set this brave sister up!"

McKinney later appeared on CNN to insinuate that the entire Capitol Hill police department had "problems inside with the treatment of — or the
respect for diversity — let me say." She adamantly refuses to apologize for her treatment of the officer she hit.
Two Capitol Hill cops died in the line of fire in 1998 defending politicians and government workers from an intruding gunman who waltzed past
a checkpoint in the same manner McKinney did. The Democrats' refusal to condemn the McKinney mob's smear campaign against the Capitol
Hill police sinks to a new level of political cowardice. And stupidity. Republicans have already announced plans to introduce a bill defending
the 1,700-member Capitol Hill police force — reinforcing the Donkey Party's haplessness on public safety and national security issues.
Contempt for law enforcement is a hallmark of the party of Ted Kennedy, Al Sharpton, Chuck Schumer, Jesse Jackson, and the Clintons. New
Yorkers won't forget the shameful attack on members of the Albany Police Department honor guard, who were cursed at and spat on by
participants in the state Democratic Party convention in 2000. It's all of a piece. To quote a certain, now-quiet Democrat Senator from New York
pandering to her black constituents:
"And you know what I am talkin' about."

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
