Dr. Stabby: Loretta Lynch Is Full Of Crap

Politico reports:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch likening the controversial North Carolina bathroom law to Jim Crow laws is “a bunch of crap,” Ben Carson said Monday. Announcing a counter-suit against the state, Lynch said North Carolina “created state-sponsored discrimination against transgender individuals” that violates federal law.

“This is not the first time that we have seen discriminatory responses to historic moments of progress to our nation,” Lynch said, citing the Jim Crow laws, resistance to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling, and the proliferation of bans on same-sex marriages as examples.

“That’s what they always say,” Carson told Fox News. “Everything is like Jim Crow. Everything is like racism and segregation and slavery. What a bunch of crap. You know, they want to do that so that they can always gain the sympathy, but thinking people know better.”

      • ByronK

        I think Harry Belafonte’s description of Colin Powell best applies here.

        • Strepsi

          Belafonte said: “In the days of slavery there were those slaves who lived on the plantation, and those slaves who lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master, exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Colin Powell is committed to come into the house of the master.”

          Hahah, bingo: i just posted house-slave Stephen up above! Here he is again:

          • Cuberly

            Every time he was on camera, your eyes where on him. Even when he was in the background you felt his presence. Was thankful that Tarantino took note of that and gave him more prominence. Especially compared to DeCrapio.

          • Friday

            Actually I think it’s pretty out of line to compare Colin Powell to *Carson.* He might have been a Republican before, (I think he quit that recently,) but being a soldier and general *first* (And probably the best one we’ve *had* since Eisenhower I can think of offhand.) Frankly, he fell on his sword for Dubya after being ordered to present intel he knew was dubious, but ….. Carson’s actually a freaking lapdog. not to mention active lunatic presently supporting a billl that prevents *black people* from being able to take state-level discrimination cases. Pretty insulting comparison.

            That’s kind of about Iraq in a lot of ways, and Powell was the one with the famous ‘Pottery Barn’ caution*against* invading Iraq. He didn’t suck at his job, and if *he’d* run for President I’d have considered him the first respectable opposition we’ve seen in a long time, actually.

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            There were several moments that I wondered if Powell’s military decisions were the most sagacious ones but I never considered if he was at all insane. I quite honestly question Carson in that regard regularly.
            Also, my respect greatly increased when I saw Powell speak at City College. It was a moving address about the role of education and accessibility to it, a hallmark of City. I just don’t see Carson or clearly Trump ever conceiving of such a thought– or any thought for that matter.

          • TimCA

            One of the signs of intelligence is the ability to change one’s opinions based on a better understanding and more information about a subject. Powell demonstrated this with his evolving views of gay people, our ability to serve in the armed forces openly, our marriages etc.

            Carson on the other hand………..

    “’That’s what they always say,’ Carson told Fox News. ‘Everything is like Jim Crow. Everything is like racism and segregation and slavery.'”

    That’s because discrimination is discrimination, regardless of the person against whom it’s levied.

    • John T

      Besides the part of the law that’s specifically about bathrooms (which is the shiny object that everyone is exclusively focused on for some reason), the law explicitly allows businesses to hang up a sign that says specific kinds of people are not welcome in their establishment. Somebody please explain to me how this is different than Jim Crow. North Carolina would still have whites only drinking fountains and lunch counters in 2016 if it weren’t for federal law. North Carolina ♥ apartheid.

        Well, I think it’s possible he could have bluffed his way through med school and actually been talented enough at the mechanical tasks involved, (cause some psychopathologies are actually an asset in brain surgery: caring=stress and not being at all stressed is a big advantage there. ) At least till enough things went wrong and he couldn’t adapt, whatever was settled out of court and otherwise meant him leading the field. It’s also possible he really was that smart and lost his mind one way or another later. One thing’s for sure, he sure doesn’t seem OK now and he kind of had an on-and-off-meds sort of pattern on the campaign trail.

  • Yeah, Mental Ben — how dare Attorney General Lynch try to get people to understand that one group’s oppression is in many ways not unlike the oppression suffered by others. And denying someone access to employment, housing, commerce or even something as simple as access to a bathroom based on what we now know is an innate human characteristic — sexual orientation and gender identity — is nothing like doing the exact same thing to someone based on a different innate human characteristic, namely skin color and genetic origins.

    One thing I am sure glad of she siad that the discrimination against people who are LGBT is just like racism, that coming from the mouth of a black attorney general of the United States. poor Ryan T Anderson from Heritage Foundation, he has been working double time arguing that being against people who are LGBT, saying you don’t have to hire them if you don’t want to, isn’t anything at all like racial discrimination. NOW he can’t run from it, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says it IS.

      They always like to see LGBT-ism as a “behavior” and not an innate state. Makes it a lot easier to minimize and dismiss it as irrelevant.

    If the right is melting down over what AG Lynch has done, her actions–despite the failure to CUT federal funding–must be more effective than I first thought.

    EDIT: I could have sworn I saw a new story, very briefly, where Ms. Lynch was saying she wanted to make sure the hate law is never allowed to go into effect while the battle rages to overturn it.

    Did I imagine it?

  • SFBruce

    “Everything is like Jim Crow. Everything is like racism and segregation and slavery. What a bunch of crap.”

    Every once in awhile, Carson makes a little sense. False comparisons are entirely possible, such as the time Carson said Obamacare is worse than slavery. He also thinks “thinking people” won’t buy what AG Lynch was saying, but how would Carson know anything about people who actually think? In the Politico piece, Carson also said we should “go back to recognizing data and science. You know, we know what men are, and we know what women are, and we’ve known that for thousands of years.” Now, I agree with the first part of that statement, and it’s exactly what I thought when Carson opined that the fact that men go into prison straight and come out gay proves being gay is a choice. But he loses it in the second part of his statement, since there’s very little that hasn’t changed in thousands of years if you actually apply science rather than fear, prejudice and superstition.

    Ben Carson talking to a Fox News crowd about what thinking people know. You can’t make this stuff up.

      And along that theme, Paul Krugman has an article about Dr. Stabby’s friend Donald, “The Making of an Ignoramus.”

      http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/09/opinion/the-making-of-an-ignoramus.html

      None of this should be taken as an excuse for Mr. Trump. He really is frighteningly uninformed; worse, he doesn’t appear to know what he doesn’t know. The point, instead, is that his blithe lack of knowledge largely follows from the know-nothing attitudes of the party he now leads.

      Oh, and just for the record: No, it’s not the same on the other side of
      the aisle. You may dislike Hillary Clinton, you may disagree sharply
      with her policies, but she and the people around her do know their
      facts. Nobody has a monopoly on wisdom, but in this election, one party
      has largely cornered the market in raw ignorance.

    I was looking for a medically-themed music piece to post to honor Ben Carson. I know there was one by a composer who used to work as an anesthesiologist for an oral surgeon, but YouTube doesn’t seem to have any performances of the “Trance and Dental Etudes.”

    This one was for you, Doctor Stabby.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Women and children are raped outside of bathrooms all the time and their plight is not only ignored, but mocked and suppressed by the same people now bleating how horrible it is now that they can pretzel it into serving their pet bigotry. I want to spit at the people freaking out about it now and tell them that the location shouldn’t magically make it more of a crime.

    WARNING: Snark ahead!

    Being black is so much easier than being gay – because you never have to tell your mother that you’re black.

    And another thing, black people never have to go through the trauma of people being ‘nice’ to them for weeks, or months, or years – until they’re suddenly “outed” for being black.

    I’ve never had a chain put ’round my neck and been dragged to my death behind some good ole boy’s pickup truck [yet], but saying that the black and LGBT communities don’t have at least a /LITTLE SOMETHING/ in common in regards to Civil Rights sets me off….

    I had forgotten about Ben Carson, then I remembered that he was the crank that God told to run for President. That God, always with the pranks!

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    If you knew Seventh Day Adventist like I know them, you’d understand why Dr. Stabby is off his rocker. I haven’t met one yet that isn’t a little messed up in the head, and I know quite a few since this area of Tennessee contains a lot of them.

    • FancyThat

      I blame Little Debbie. And Sabbath potluck haystacks. And the Vita-Mixer. And the SDA parents. And TUNO. It’s just the right combination that makes a young Adventist man want to stab his best buddy in the belt buckle, and hit his mother over the head with a claw hammer.

      Unfortunately, Dr. Ben Stabby’s 15 minutes of fame were over at his first GOP ‘prayer breakfast’ when he went all uppity and disrespected the black, undocumented US president. Ben the gem was just spouting meaningless shit, yet realizing, long before this current campaign cycle, that he had the keen ability to get the Christian Supremacist crowds on their feet applauding wildly just by waving the ol’Hate ‘n Fear’ flag.

      The good ol’ boys and the top-ranking Christian Supremacists knew, at that very moment, that they had themselves a ‘colored man’ whom the GOP was convinced they could successfully utilize to convince their base that they represented ‘the black minority voters.’ And Ben even gave the initial odd impression that he could actually think.

      And to show that the GOP was also inclusive in championing homosexual/LGBT rights, they found a second POTUS-queen named Lindsey. Yup, with Ben & Lindsey, the GOP certainly convinced everyone that they were the all-inclusive voice of minorities in America.

      Ben and Lindsey are now both hoping for more spotlight time with Donald in the months ahead, and both have been prayerfully spending a LOT of time on their knees with Donald.

      It’s anyone’s guess what (or whom) will come next.

      • FancyThat

        Oh…. and what about the time that Adventist Meryl Streep went up in
        the outback and stole one of the dingo babies? Or that time the
        Adventist mom, Sally Field, taunted her young daughter with a whole
        stack of Our Gang multiple-personalities? You can’t make that stuff up!

        Or when that Adventist Little Richard went all Tutti-Fruitti on Elvis? They have a special
        Pathfinders campground in Area 51 for lotsa Adventist personalities who
        fall into the Adventist Abyss. Supposedly, that SDA Purple Rain guy,
        Prince, was put into a medically induced coma under the airport in Denver until Ben is appointed as Trump’s personal chaplain. That’s when, in prophecy, Little Debbie ascends the throne of the AntiChrist in the Adventist
        Apocalypse thingy. (in Two Corinthians).

        Once Ben and the Klingons are at the helm with the Orangutan Chieftain, snack cakes will fall from heaven like manna.

        Nothin’ strange goin’ on here folks. Keep moving.

  • It’s sad that Politico, CNN, and other news organizations have bought into the “bathroom bill” rhetoric. Bathrooms are a small part of this discriminatory legislation. Do you honestly believe that lawmakers in NC would have railroaded this bill through, with virtually NO debate, had it not been for last year’s Obergefell decision?

    Prior to the enactment of HB2, the North Carolina counties of Buncombe, Mecklenburg, and Orange, the cities of Asheville and Charlotte and the towns of Boone, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, and Raleigh prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The counties of Durham and Guilford along with the cities of Bessemer City, Durham, High Point, and Winston-Salem prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation only.

    All of those laws are now gone. No matter where you live in North Carolina, you can get married on Saturday and get fired from your job the following Monday if your boss doesn’t like Gay marriage. This a HUGE step backward for the state, and corporate America is right to be unhappy about it.

    Why in the world is Dr. Carson making pronouncements about “thinking people?”

    Shouldn’t he restrict himself to things he knows anything about?

    I was but a wee tyke when Dr. King was alive, but in all of my adult life I have never seen a greater display of strength and grace than what I say yesterday when Attorney General Lynch spoke. Dr. Carson, you are barely a dim bulb compared to the brilliant light that is Loretta Lynch, so, seriously, you need to get a clue that your 15 minutes was up a while back.

  • TheSeer

    “but thinking people know better.”

    Too bad you’re not among those dr. Stabby.

  • CJAS

    And “thinking people know better” than to believe that his supporters think “racism and segregation and slavery” are evils.

  • Dr. Stabby’s delusional ravings continue – once he started on the “pyramids as grain repositories” thing, I realized his connection with reality is somewhat less than tenuous.
