He did it again. Footage has emerged of a second macing of nonviolent protesters by NYPD officer Anthony Bologna (below).
The NYPD is claiming it’s going to investigate, but Commissioner Raymond Kelly is skeptical that Bologna did anything wrong! He said of the footage of the incident: “In my experience, proponents of a certain position would show you just what they want to show you.”
We need to make sure the NYPD holds a legitimate investigation, and that this doesn’t just get swept under the rug like so many other instances of police abuse before it.

P.S. Let’s make sure this incident doesn’t get swept under the rug, like so much police abuse before it. Will you urge your friends to sign on too?
THANK YOU, GOD FOR PRESERVING THIS VIDEO!
FDR was speaking to the Tea Party of his day. The people had his back and his enemies hated him for it. His candidacy was a precursor to the situation we are in today. The Speaker of the House and some of his members continue to insult the President of the United States. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) started the unheard of chorus by calling the President a liar during his State of the Union. Why all this hate? Because he is black? Because he is not white? Because he is the best speaker in politics today? Because his campaign was so new and spectacular? Because he is a Harvard graduate? Because he is rich and yet champions the issues of the middle-class and the poor…like the Kennedy‘s who are white? Because this millionaire doesn’t spending each waking hour scheming to become a billionaire? History will tell us. President Roosevelt told us how we and our President should feel about the Tea Party. They are few, full of ideology and would run the nation into a ditch so long as they got their way. And, without compromising in negotiations. Is it too strong to call the Tea Party the enemy of the majority of American people? The answer is in each of our hearts. This is your Republican party of today who are jumping on the Tea Party bandwagon. Some of these rogue politicians are:

The Tea Party means well, I suppose. They have opinions and express them with the right guaranteed them by The Constitution. But, they do not represent the MAJORITY of the American people. Witness recent opinion recent polls. I don’t know what they are telling you on FoxNews, but, I am told that they are themselves a conservative republican outlet that the FEC inexplicably allows to operate and collect campaign money. While one may think MSNBC as liberal, they do not select candidates and support their campaign with skewed “news”. Mere mortals do not know how a TV station can be a powerful political entity. The images above are only a sampling of those who are active Tea Party supporters. What is the antidote to the Tea Party? The ballot box. Vote democratic in the next elections!

Herman Cain, you say that black people have been “brainwashed” into not considering a conservative party candidate, like you. You say that you have received vitriol from us. Sir, what have blacks and latinos received from conservatives lately? The racists who oppress us and try to resurrect Jim Crow are conservatives, like yourself. The Republican Party has a small tent with little interest in low and middle-class blacks and latinos. Success is the price of admission. In Negro history it has been Democrats and Progressives who have fought and died for our freedoms, like the Right to Vote, fair housing, fair wages, etc.
Republican dominated state legislatures, the various Tea Parties and Republican governors, like Nikki Haley of South Carolina, have conspired to “rig” the 2012 Presidential Election by making it difficult for blacks and latinos to vote. They have passed laws that require PHOTO ID to vote which is a hardship for poor people. Governor Haley has promised personally to provide transportation to the 200,000 voters in South Carolina who have no PHOTO ID. I hope the media holds her feet to the fire and make her keep her promise. Yes, you Republicans are resurrecting “Jim Crow,” Mr. Cain. What you are doing may be legal but it’s dirty pool! If you are going to win, then win with honor. No, Mr. Cain, we have not been brainwashed. We just have open eyes! God bless the Democratic Party whose tent stretches from shore to shore!
