Even unions will sometimes push back against moonbattery when it makes it impossible for police to do their jobs:
Cops might as well wear blindfolds if the City Council passes a bill that would let them use little more than the color of a suspect’s clothing in descriptions — or risk being sued for profiling, according to this provocative new ad (pictured) from the NYPD captains union. …
Union President Roy Richter — who is seen in the ad wearing a blindfold in Times Square — told The Post the bill is dangerous because “it will ban cops from identifying a suspect’s age, gender, color or disability.
That is, the bark-at-the-moon lunacy of prohibiting “profiling” will be extended to anyone who deviates from normal in any way, making the meaningful description of suspects illegal.
The bill’s sponsor, Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn), and Speaker Christine Quinn are going to bypass normal committee process and bring the measure directly to a vote.
Particularly pernicious legislation is always rammed through via the express lane nowadays. ObamaCare paved the way.
PBA President Pat Lynch doesn’t like the bill, yet continues to pay lip service to the demented ideology that justifies it:
“Racial profiling is already illegal — and should be.”
But if you accept any limitations on “profiling,” you have already set yourself sliding down a slippery slope to insanity.
Williams and fellow Brooklyn Democrat Brad Lander, a co-sponsor of the proposal, say it would only expand the city’s existing racial-profiling law by adding other demographic groups that should be protected, such as the homeless and gay people.
The law will inevitably lead to an avalanche of lawsuits, as anyone stopped by police who belongs to any privileged “victim” caste (i.e., anyone other than non-disabled employed white male heterosexual Christians, who are becoming increasingly rare in the moonbat dystopia of New York City) can cash in on jackpot justice. Maybe kooks like Williams, Lander, Quinn et al. are so nuts they actually believe liberal ideology should trump public safety; or maybe, like the Democrat Party, they are largely bankrolled by trial lawyers.
See no evil, speak no political incorrectness.

Does this make you want to drink some Dr Pepper Ten?
I love The Slow Mo Guys. Seriously, if you’ve never come across their corner of the YouTube galaxy before, you should set some time aside to catch up.
They have slo-mo videos of flint striking steel, power station demolition, flame-throwers and Molotov cocktails, a gas rocket and explosion after explosion after explosion. After explosion. They did like, a week of explosions.
President Obama’s visit to the Group of Eight summit has created a political row in Ireland after an outspoken liberal lawmaker on Wednesday denounced the U.S. president as a “war criminal” for his drone use and his decision to arm the Syrian rebels.
Parliamentarian Clare Daly said her country’s government had showcased the country “as a nation of pimps, prostituting ourselves in return for a pat on the head,” The Irish Times reports.The “unprecedented slobbering” during Obama’s two-day visit to Northern Ireland, she said, had even led to speculation that “you were going to deck the Cabinet out in leprechaun hats decorated with a bit of stars and stripes to really mark abject humiliation.”
“This is the man who is in essence stalling the Geneva peace talks [scheduled for next month] by trying to broker enhanced leverage for the Syrian opposition by giving them arms — and to hell with the thousands more who’ll lose their lives, or the tens of thousands who will be displaced,” Daly said.
“This is the man who has facilitated a 200 percent increase in the use of drones which have killed thousands of people, including hundreds of children.”
WORTH SEEING: He completely dismantles them. Brilliant.
I am shocked at this video. Russell Brand continues to demonstrate that he’s incredibly smart, and that he has a better grasp on real news that TV news anchors. This is one of the most condescending fluff approaches I’ve seen on TV news, and Brand is clearly freaked out by it, then decides to try to save it by offering lessons in manners, focus, and actual news.
After you’re done watching this, read this interview Gawker did with Russell Brand about Bradley Manning: “What’s actually important? A human being doing a thing that was quite bold—possibly from a position of some personal trauma—but that regardless has brought attention to important stuff. We all know that shit goes on! But he’s brought palpable, tangible evidence of mendacious—oh no, don’t want to use that word again—conduct apparently for the protection or for the furtherment of the American people.”
Seems that someone was clearly underestimated this morning.
