Trenton NJ, Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal and the Division on Civil Rights today issued new guidance addressing questions related to COVID-19 and the rights of New Jersey residents under New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD) and Family Leave Act (FLA).

“COVID-19 is no excuse for racism, xenophobia, or hate,” said Attorney General Grewal. “Discrimination and harassment in violation of New Jersey law remains illegal even if it occurs against the backdrop of a global pandemic. Now, more than ever, we should recognize that we’re all in this together. Words and actions that divide us won’t make any of us safer or stronger.”

Reader says , “I’m so sick of hearing I’m a Racist because I think differently”

Race Card Racists1

“I as a White American Man i’m so sick of hearing I’m a Racist because I think differently. I have issues with all races. Lower class White people who will beg,borrow and steal to get over on Anyone. Disgruntled Black people who think they are owed something because their Black. Lower class Hispanics who use their race to commit crimes. This is not something you normally see in Asian people. You can put all races that want to get along and who want to reach a goal of the American dream together and they will find they have more in common with each other than people would have you believe. Racism is one group of people no matter their skin color thinking they are better than someone else.
You really only hear this statement from Democrats. Let’s not forget it was the Democratic party that was the KKK, Jim Crow,George Wallace the Democratic party was started by White slave owners FACT. The south was really Racist and a lot of their teaching to their children was the Black people were low down sub human criminal people. I am a child of the sixties and that was what a lot of us were taught. It’s all in the ” ideological ” up bringing that you are taught. People have changed considerably since that time in history. I was brought up by Biblical parents who said everyone has red blood and everyone has feelings think about how you want to be treated before you act on impulses. There are very fine people of all races and there are very bad people. All people who think they are better than someone else or think they are owed something because of their skin color make me very angry. The Media and politicians are the driving forces that divide the American people and it’s Sickening. I live in the south and my neighborhood is getting more diverse every year and we all get along very well. I believe that there should be a law that the media and politicians that use race to divide our people should go to jail.”

Openly Gay Reader Takes on Local Race baiters

DSC00793 e1559437286758

“The slippery slope argument that many of you are using is a well-known logical fallacy. It ignores the possibility of a middle ground and takes everything to its extreme. There are endless solutions to decide whether something is offensive or appropriate, including commissions and the council itself. Subjectivity is inherent to democracy itself and there’s nothing in our society that isn’t deemed acceptable or not except by society itself. Stop using fear mongering to justify your opposition to a policy just because you’re not comfortable being honest about the reasons behind your true opposition to it (homophobia).”

Reader states : “You with all the long paragraphs. Stop being so condescending and superior. I am not homophobic. I am openly gay. And I think the flagpole was a big mistake. I do not need a rainbow flag to live my life. And I do not want the possibility of hateful flags. Come down off your high horse. objecting does not make a person homophobic.”

Kim Guadagno Hits Back Over Murphy Race Baiting


September 3,2017
the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, while we have never been a strong supporter of Kim Guadagno , Phil Murphy (Corzine 2.0) is clearly a threat to many New Jerseyans livelihood . His big government tax and spend philosophy will chase any business out of New Jersey, leaving fewer people to carry the massive tax burden.  Murphy’s “Connecticut Scheme ” will have the same results as in Connecticut driving away the states largest employers and most productive individuals .

Worse yet in recent statements Murphy is appearing a bit desperate which seems odd for someone “up 29 points” in the polls.

Kim Guadagno  slapped back  at Murphy, “It’s a shame that Phil Murphy would stoop so low to hide his support for raising taxes by over $1.3 billion by getting involved in divisive and horrendous identity politics. Carlos and I have condemned racism and bigotry in all forms, and Phil Murphy knows it. His desperate race-baiting attacks to stir up fake outrage are beneath all of us as New Jerseyans, who value diversity, equality and love for each other.”

Murphy Race Baiting , “We are now seeing a disturbing trend emerge with Kim Guadagno and her campaign. Yesterday, she refused to criticize a sitting Assemblyman for posing with the Confederate flag, a symbol of bigotry and divisiveness. Today, we’ve learned that her choice for Lieutenant Governor, Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo, has been accused of systematic harassment and discrimination by the Chabad community in Woodcliff Lake. Yet, both times Lieutenant Governor Guadagno refused to criticize racist and anti-semitic speech despite the clear evidence.”

“Clear evidence.” really this guy is starting to sound like Al Sharpton quoting fake news , race baiting and obfuscating  his positions trying to hide the huge tax increases that will finally sink New Jersey economy once and for all  .

Kim Guadagno sums it up  ,”Murphy is taking the coward’s way out, ducking for cover behind the task force to avoid saying what he’s likely thinking, that he plans to reward those unions for their support by dumping the cap. New Jerseyans deserve to know where Murphy stands before November, and they have every reason to expect our would-be governor to have the courage explain his position.”

White House: Obama stands by use of N-word


President lectures about Racism , then uses the N-Word 

By Jordan Fabian

President Obama has no regrets about using the N-word to make a point during a recent discussion on race, the White House said Monday.

“He does not,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “The president’s use of the word and the reason he used the word could not be more apparent.”

The president’s phrasing renewed a debate over who is allowed to use the word and when it’s appropriate to say.

In a podcast released Monday, the president urged the nation to deal with the enduring problem of racism, saying it has not been “cured” simply because it is no longer acceptable to utter racial slurs publicly.

“Racism, we are not cured of it. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n—– in public,” he said on Marc Maron’s “WTF Podcast.”“That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”

Reader says perhaps Starbucks is succeeded with initiating productive dialogue by the people rather than the media



Reader says  perhaps Starbucks is succeeded with initiating productive dialogue by the people rather than the media

Here’s some fuel for the fire. Does anyone else notice that there is rarely any media coverage about discrimination of any other group that even comes close to the hype provided for the race-baiters that soak up the camera and $$$ today? Pick any “oppressed” group. I’m no historian, but did any of these groups destroy, on a continuous basis, their own communities with riots, fire and other illegal activities? And at the same time have their own media darlings who benefitted as a result. It appears that the groups who experienced such a plight improved themselves and their peers, or are in the process of this. There are already laws on the books. At what point is society no longer to blame and personal responsibility becomes necessary?? This is a genuine question, so looking forward to informative responses rather than personal attacks. I don’t like Starbucks coffee either, but perhaps it succeeded with initiating productive dialogue by the people rather than the media.

Nation Magazine: If You Want The Patriots To Win The Super Bowl, You’re Racist




Nation  Magazine: If You Want The Patriots To Win The Super Bowl, You’re Racist

Even as the final days before the Super Bowl draw to a close, the liberal media refuses to quit its slanderous campaign against the 2015 AFC Champion New England Patriots.

The most recent salvo of Pats-hate comes from noted liberal-weekly, The Nation, which decided to abandon any and all shreds of journalistic bias in favor of declaring the Seattle Seahawks as America’s chosen team. The Deflate-Gate scandal has been revealed as a smoke and mirrors effort to undermine the house that Belichick built, and at this point in the game, these last futile proclamations from the self-proclaimed “flagship of the left” are not only easy to see through, but just flat-out repetitive.

For starters, the article’s main argument is basically as follows: “The NFL is part of a changing, more socially-conscious America, and if you aren’t pulling for the Seahawks, it’s probably because you’re a racist.”

Seriously. It’s all in there.

When I started writing about the intersection of sports and politics in 2003, a countless number of sentences started with two words: “if only”. “If only” star athletes used their hyper-exalted-brought-to-you-by Nike platform to actually say something about the world instead of just trying to sell us more crap. If only they stood up to tired sports media that for decades had treated outspoken athletes with a sneering and, in the case of black players, transparently racist contempt…

This is a team that has had players speak out for the Black Lives Matter movement and a team that has felt no compunction against calling out a commissioner in Roger Goodell who cares more about public relations than the players and the families of players that the league employs…

To have Marshawn Lynch consciously try to control his own labor and by doing so, dredge up the worst impulses in the sports media aristocracy was, intentionally or not, a national service. Thanks to Lynch, we have seen a layer of sports writers regurgitate all of their suppressed bile against young black athletes—tweeting things like their desire for an “English to Marshawn dictionary”—and exposing the long-standing resentments older and mostly whiter sportswriters have towards the people they cover…

The NFL—a brutal, damnable sports league—is now intimately connected to how we discuss issues ranging from violence against women, to workplace safety, to the movement against police brutality. But as long as that is the truth, we should want the people who hold that platform to be the most conscious possible participants in this discussion. This is reason enough, if you aren’t from the Maine-to-Connecticut-corridor, to pull for the Seattle Seahawks.

How Long Will It Take to Repair Damage Holder Has Done at Justice Department?


How Long Will It Take to Repair Damage Holder Has Done at Justice Department?
Hans von Spakovsky / @HvonSpakovsky / September 27, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement Thursday that he is resigning, effective when his successor is confirmed, is welcome news.

As John Fund and I outline in our recent book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” every time President Obama has broken, bent, ignored or changed the law, the person at his side advising him how to do it has been Eric Holder.

Mr. Holder is also responsible for spearheading an unprecedented politicization of the Justice Department, which should be of great concern to anyone who cares about the rule of law and the impartial administration of justice.

Why care about who runs the U.S. Justice Department? It matters because Justice is one of the most powerful executive branch agencies in the federal government. It has enormous discretionary power to pursue people accused of breaking the law and to exert major influence over social, economic and national security policies by the enforcement (or non-enforcement) choices made by its top officer.

Justice requires someone who understands that, while the attorney general is a political appointee, he (or she) has a sworn duty to uphold the Constitution and enforce the law in an objective, non-political manner. For the most part, Eric Holder failed in the execution of that duty.

Mr. Holder is the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt by the House of Representatives. He earned this dubious distinction by refusing to turn over documents related to what may be the most reckless law enforcement operation ever undertaken by the Justice Department: Operation Fast and Furious.

Every time President Obama has broken, bent, ignored or changed the law, the person at his side advising him how to do it has been Eric Holder.

During his tenure, the Justice Department launched more investigations and prosecutions of leaks than all prior attorneys general combined, while studiously ignoring high-level “friendly leaks” by White House officials designed to make the president look tough in the fight against terrorism.

Mr. Holder racialized the prosecution of federal anti-discrimination laws and led an unprecedented attack on election integrity laws, thus making it easier for people to commit voter fraud.

His handling of national security issues and his reinstitution of the Clinton-era criminal model for handling terrorists have endangered national security and the safety of the American public.

Mr. Holder has tried to restrict pro-life protesters’ First Amendment right to speak, has prosecuted American companies (under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) for behavior that is routine among government officials, and has on numerous occasions ignored his duty to defend the law and to enforce statutes passed by Congress.

In clear violation of civil service rules, Mr. Holder filled the career ranks of the Justice Department with political allies, cronies and Democratic Party donors.

He treated Congress with contempt and did everything he could to evade its oversight responsibilities by misleading, misinforming and ignoring members of Congress and its committees.

For these reasons and many others, a former career lawyer who served in the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations told us that, in his opinion, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of Attorney General since the disgraced John Mitchell, who went to jail as a result of the Watergate scandal.” This is quite a criticism given that many DOJ veterans believe that the Department reached its nadir under Mitchell.

But in comparison to Holder, Mitchell seems like an amateur in corrupting the law enforcement duties of the Justice Department to carry out the political objectives of President Obama.

The many cases in which judges have accused DOJ prosecutors of engaging in prosecutorial abuse during Holder’s tenure shows, unfortunately, the extent to which this modus operandi has seeped into the lower levels of the Department.

How long it will take to repair the damage that Eric Holder has done to the management and operation of the Justice Department? There is no way to know.

In the end, it is the president who decides on the character, attributes and competence of the individual chosen to be the head of the largest law enforcement organization in the United States.

And it is the president who decides whether his administration – and his attorney general – will fulfill their obligation to “faithfully execute” their duty to enforce the law and “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
