Anti-Black Lives Matter researcher blames ‘lack of socialization’ for ‘behavior disparities’ on Fox News

Published

on

Fox News personality Tucker Carlson hosted a controversial right-wing researcher who blamed “lack of socialization” by black students for racial disparities in education.

Heather Mac Donald authored the 2003 book Are Cops Racist? and the 2016 book The War on Cops.

“You may have noticed that American schools have been increasingly dysfunctional, many of them, some are getting more dangerous, but you may not know that a federal policy as part of the reason,” Carlson claimed.

“Several years ago, the Obama administration ordered schools to eliminate racial gaps in school discipline,” Carlson continued. “The Trump administration reportedly is planning to scrap that Obama era rule.”

“Schools were warned by the Obama administration that they would lose federal funding, unless they got there suspension and expulsion rates down,” Mac Donald claimed, referring to racial disparity gap. “So as you say, schools simply stopped imposing completely legitimate consequences on very serious forms of school disorder.”

“It assumes, without even trying to prove, that there can be no behavioral disparities between black and white students,” she argued. “If you look at crime rates, if you look at the fact that black males between the ages of 14 and 17 commit homicide at ten times the rate of white and Hispanic male teens combined, it’s not surprising that in the classroom classroom, the same lack of socialization that leads to those highly disproportionate rates of violent crime, is also affecting student behavior.”

This is not the first time Mac Donald had raised eyebrows with her views on race and crime, as she was a prominent proponent of the so-called “Ferguson Effect.”

“Mac Donald was the first to identify this effect, which she traces to anti-police rhetoric and then the resulting wariness of police to enforce the law and arrest lawbreakers,” the National Review reported.

During the 2016 campaign, Mac Donald published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal titled “The Myth of the Racist Cop.”

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

on

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.
