Patterico's Pontifications


Erase! Erase! Erase!

It’s all the rage these days. Daily Breeze:

The phone at Drum Barracks Civil War Museum in Wilmington started ringing early Friday morning.

Media outlets wanted reaction from curator/director Susan Ogle to a letter sent out by U.S. Rep. Janice Hahn urging that any Confederate battle flags be removed from the museum’s gift shop shelves.

Two problems: The letter was never sent to Ogle. And she’d already voluntarily removed the flags days earlier.

“I’ve already had calls from (two newspapers), four radio stations and two television stations,” Ogle said when contacted by the Daily Breeze on Friday morning, one day after the Breeze published an article on the Confederate memorabilia in the gift shop.

The story adds: “The Confederate flags hanging in a formal exhibit in the museum — shown in an accompanying photo and video — are not affected.”

WELL HOW DARE THEY?! There is still some history to be deleted. I want those flags GONE — gone like Israel from the maps that are used to brainwash Palestinian children. Trotsky? Never heard of him, comrade. Oceania has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia!

A Fierce Megyn Kelly Eviscerates President Obama And His Selective Silence On The Death Of Katie Steinle (Video Added)

Megyn Kelly’s opening monologue:

Breaking tonight, the young woman gunned down by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco was just laid to rest, surrounded by friends and family. It does not appear at this hour that anyone from the Obama administration was in attendance. Welcome to The Kelly File, I’m Megyn Kelly. Funeral services were held this evening for 32-year-old Kathryn “Katie” Steinle.

Her loved ones remembering her as an avid traveller who loved connecting with people until her life was cut short a week ago. That’s when Kate was shot and killed while in her father’s arms. Police say by this man, Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times from this country and had rapped up a string of felonies while in the U.S.

The San Francisco sheriff had Sanchez in custody as recently as April but released him pursuant to San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy where they have rules against handing over anyone to the feds who might be deported. This sheriff, himself a convicted criminal, says he stands by the city’s policy.

Kate’s murder has since exploded into a national debate on illegal immigrants, sanctuary cities and crime. With the White House ducking the issue of its own acquiescence in these cities’ decision to flout the federal immigration laws which were duly enacted. When asked repeatedly this week to speak to this case, White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to weigh in other than to refer folks to the Department of Homeland Security.

A stark contrast to what we saw after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson. A man we know was attacking a police officer at the time of his death. His funeral saw three Obama officials in attendance, his death drew comments from President Obama personally and his administration also sent in the DOJ and 40 FBI agents dispatched to Missouri after Michael Brown was killed. Where is the swarm of agents in San Francisco?

Then there was Freddie Gray in Baltimore, a repeat drug offender who was killed in police custody. Here again his funeral was attended by three Obama administration officials and again the President spoke personally to Freddie Gray’s death. And again sent the DOJ in to investigate. When Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida, the president spoke to his death which was later ruled to be in self-defense. But Katie Steinle, nothing. No comments, no swarm of FBI agents, no DOJ investigation, nothing. Why?

As a reminder, when asked about the shooting of Katie Steinle, administration spokesman Josh Earnest shamefully politicized the tragedy and blamed Republicans for her death.

Well what do you know? It turns out that there really is such thing as being too incompetent to continue to serve in the Obama Administration. I guess she exceeded the Sebelius Standard for gross dereliction.
