Shouting Match Breaks Out At 9/11 Ceremony; Race Card Played Yet Again

NY Post- Video: Councilman Barron gets into shouting match

New York City Councilman Charles Barron and a city university trustee have gotten into a shouting match in the middle of a groundbreaking ceremony.

Barron got up to the podium at the Tuesday event and accused Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other officials of disrespecting him.

City University of New York trustee Jeffrey Wiesenfeld stood up from his seat in the front row and accused Barron of being disruptive. The two men shouted at each other for several minutes.

Barron claimed afterward that he was originally seated in the audience instead of the event podium and that students he brought with him were not allowed into the event.

Must be nice to always have that race card as a backup in case you can't keep up with someone in an argument.

I wanted to find a little bit more about this Charles Barron so I dug a little deeper. Ahh, what would I do without Wikipedia! Here's what I found:

from Wikipedia article....

Civil Unrest

Charles Barron participated in the "day of unrest" on December 21, 1987 to protest racism in the city. The demonstration, which ended in the arrest of over 70 people, stalled service on the IRT subway lines for hours and created great tumult in the city. He, along with Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Timothy Mitchell and scores of protesters were found guilty of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct, forcing him to spend 45 days in jail.[17]
Barron was arrested during his time as head of the Black United Front's Harlem Chapter. In 1982, Charles Barron was arrested with Preston Wilcox from the Institute of African Research because they, with roughly 12 to 20 protesters, attempted to "forcibly remove" a white employee from the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. They intended to remove Robert Morris, a white historian, who was appointed chief archivist for the Center. They were charged with harassment and criminal trespassing.

Education and Racism

He criticized the City University of New York for increasing its admission standards through the use of entrance exams and the elimination of remedial courses, saying, "I think racism comes behind standards."[16]. Barron believed the university had ulterior motives that drove it to raise the academic standards which restricted access to minority students. He went further, saying that college-age students shouldn't be denied admission to four-year colleges because of failures in the school systems they grew up in. He also cited the fact that CUNY's four-year colleges had open admission at one time, when admission was predominantly white. However, CUNY has reported that the number of black students at its four-year colleges increased in the three years following the end of open admission, while changes in the proportions of other ethnic groups were minimal.

View of U.S. History

Charles Barron has frequently raised eyebrows by trying to change the presentation of history in the United States. He is very vocal about publicizing black history, including erecting portraits of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, as important leaders of American history. In his view, many of the current monuments erected to the founding fathers and original white American leaders subtly represent slavery. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, for example, were slaveowners who he feels are remembered as false liberators because they still supported the institution of slavery. He has often proposed changes in New York City such as renaming buildings and schools as well as decorating them with mementos of black history to better represent the black community's struggle and contributions to the United States.
Barron has long criticized the prominent statue of Thomas Jefferson in the City Council chamber he works at, which he claims represents a "white, slave-owning pedophile."[10] However, when he criticized the new speaker for the Council, Christine C. Quinn, his seat was changed to one next to the statue, which was seen as a punishment. Quinn's spokespeople stated that it was merely coincidental. Barron did not express bitterness against Speaker Quinn, saying, "I don't think it was deliberate, but it does bother me to be placed so near Jefferson, who was a slaveholder, a hypocrite, and a rapist."[11]
Barron says he does not salute the flag or believe in the Pledge of Allegiance, saying the entire pledge is "a lie" that states equality and justice for all, which are not true in America and were especially untrue in black history.[12] In 2004, he strongly objected to a move by the City Council that would begin each meeting with a voluntary Pledge.

And here's a nice quote from this poor, victimized, dear black gentleman:

"I want to go up to the closest white person and say, ‘You can’t understand this, it’s a black thing’ and then slap him, just for my mental health."

This vile cretin is a grade-A black supremacist and no more useful than a barrel of toxic waste in my opinion. I would love to see him go toe to toe with the Reverend James David Manning and see how far his race card gets him! Who does Barron remind you of? The name Jeremiah Wright came to mind awfully fast for me. This same ideology (Black-good White-bad America-bad) was what our very own president chose to listen to for his spiritual "mentoring" for over two decades. That in itself should tell you about a man's character.

Where do you find such gold? This is why I love your blog!

There's really nothing I can say about this that isn't obvious to anyone with any common-sense.

So if I tell a black person they are being disrespectful or disruptive during a public meeting, will I be called a racist as well? Have we really, I mean REALLY, come to this as a Nation?

Thank you!

And, apparently so! It's a shame, is it not?

It appears this racist would fit in nicely in a cushy White House administrative job or as a research assistant to Sonia Sotamayor.
