  1. That’s some nice trollling Jessie

  2. I have to say, I like Ice T’s attitude. Though he still is (or was?) on one of the most formulaic, cop-fellating shows on TV.

    1. Shut up. SHUT UP! Eliot Stabler is out there beating the shit out of suspects to keep tender little assholes like yours safe.

      1. He so righteous and dreamy!

        1. On this episode, Olivia has to dress up like a hooker again.

      2. Would.

        But I’m sure we already knew that.

        1. Oh my. Another jesse/nicole overlap.

          1. Unusual, but not unheard of…

            I mean, have you seen that ass?

            1. Yes. Yes I have.

                1. Um…but have you seen that ass?

                2. More needs to be written about the female and gay gaze.

                  1. 2.8 million Google results not enough?

                    1. Why am I always the last to know?

                      The Male Gaze vs. The Female Gaze

                    2. From the shit article

                      I’m probably going to get a lot of flack for saying this, but if I had to describe the Male Gaze using only one word, it would be this: ENTITLEMENT.

                      I’m sure she/he/it got soooo much flak from the legion of sycophants that reside her SJW bubble.

                    3. I actually found a lot of truth in the article:

                      female sexuality is something to fear and smart men must be vigilant.

                    4. *Nods in agreement*

                3. I take it you’re more a Tobias man?

                  Or do your tastes run more Vern?

                  Friend: Umm, you seem awfully preoccupied with prison rape, what the fuck?
                  Me: I just binge-watched Oz.
                  Friend: Great show! Totally understandable then, carry on.

            2. Would would would would – too bad some of us are still in the office.

              1. Bookmark the butt shot for later. It’s the best picture I’ve seen all week.

        2. Oz: HBO bringing gay porn to the masses. NTTAWWT.

          1. I credit the show ‘Oz’ for encouraging me to be a law-abiding citizen and avoiding prison at all costs.

      1. Every breath you take, every move you make…I’ll be watching you. That’s police talk.

        1. *golf clap*

    2. Epi, he’s protecting your kids from the scourge of designer drugs.

      1. Here are a bunch more that I have seen.

        1. That’s hilarious

  3. I remember seeing Ice T in a mall once, and thinking, hey, that looks like Ice T… then thinking, what are the odds… then thinking, yeah, what are the odds of there being another human who looks like Ice T.

  4. I can’t figure out the context of his original tweet.

    1. Then clearly you don’t know how Twitter works. There’s never any context.

    2. I was curious, so I went to his page. I am still confused, something about Ice T and gaming.

      1. There was an SVU episode “ripped from the headlines” or whatever that had some kind of tie-in to GamerGate. Peeps started tweeting at him angrily about it but he didn’t know what GamerGate actually was.

        1. Ah, it became slightly more clear the more I scrolled.

    3. Ice T has been on an amazing Twitter rant about the media for like 6 hours because he asked someone what Gamergate was, the guy said it was related to gaming journalism, and Ice T proceeded to tell Gamers they shouldn’t care what the media says because ‘fuck the media, fuckers don’t know shit. Keep movin.’

  5. Hey, anyone want to see a great example of people totally bullshitting with statistics for political reasons?

    From an African American activist website called Colorlines:

    STUDY: Black Students Disproportionately Suspended, Expelled in Southern Schools

    OH NO! Those southern racists! According to Colorlines, 55% of all black students suspended and expelled from school are from those bigot southern states!

    Surely that’s evidence that they’re horrible racists. I mean, it’s not like 55% of black people in America live in the south or anything because that would totally ruin the argument.

    The U.S. Census Bureau released today a 2010 Census brief, The Black Population: 2010 [PDF], that shows 14 percent of all people in the United States identified as black, either alone or in combination with one or more other races. In 2010, 55 percent of the black population lived in the South, and 105 Southern counties had a black population of 50 percent or higher.

    Oops.

    1. Wow, things never work out that perfectly. I love it.

      1. I saw the stat at Colorlines and immediately thought ‘well more black people live in the south. I’m sure it’s not that far away from the actual percentage of black people down there.’

        So I googled census stats and couldn’t believe it was the exact same percentage.

      2. This is the last one I remember.

        He’s criticizing a ‘nerds hate chicks’ study for using GRE scores instead of GRE math scores.

        GRE scores are designed to follow a normal distribution, so we can plug all of this into our handy-dandy normal distribution calculator and find that 19% of men and 6% of women taking the GRE meet the score threshold to get into graduate level Mathematics. 191,394 men and 244,712 women took the GRE last year, so there will be about 36,400 men and 14,700 women who pass the score bar and qualify for graduate level mathematics. That means the pool of people who can do graduate Mathematics is 29% female. And when we look at the actual gender balance in graduate Mathematics, it’s also 29% female.

    2. Too late. Some Slate writer has already masturbated to it and is already half way through a headline story.

    3. Quiet, you racist denier/apologist! Just because the data doesn’t support the narrative doesn’t mean it’s not true.

    4. That’s only half of their argument, though.

      “Blacks are only 24 percent of students enrolled in public schools in those states, yet they are 48 percent of students suspended, 49 percent of students expelled,” study coauthor Shaun R. Harper told NPR. “There are 84 districts where blacks were 100 percent of students suspended from school.”

      1. Yes, but that’s true all over the country. The issue is that they focus on the South because the south is where the evil racists are, but this is a national issue with a number of causes.

        It’s very possible the reason more black people are suspended is because more black people do things worthy of suspension. In which case the issue is unrelated to the schools and their claim of southern racism (which is the real point of the argument) evaporates.

        1. It’s racist to hold Blacks to the same standard as whites. I’ve literally heard SJWs argue this while accusing everyone else of being racist. Mind-boggling…

          1. There was a story recently about a school district (NYC?) basically letting black kids get away with stuff that white kids got in trouble for, just to produce the “correct” numbers.

            1. Back when I was in school it was common to punish the ‘good’ kids more harshly than the ‘bad’ kids for the same offenses. The reasoning was that the offence was worse because good kids should know better. Pretty common attitude in the military (well, Air Force) too.

            2. “There was a story recently about a school district (NYC?) basically letting black kids get away with stuff that white kids got in trouble for, just to produce the “correct” numbers”

              My district (West Contra Costa Unified) does this. I have witnessed it with my own eyes.

          2. It’s racist to hold Blacks to the same standard as whites. I’ve literally heard SJWs argue this while accusing everyone else of being racist. Mind-boggling…

            Trying to reason with them is difficult. They’re so profoundly stupid and their beliefs are so wildly out of proportion with reason that I just don’t know where to begin.

            1. It’s like they employ an inverse Occam’s Razor. The most logical, rational explanation is cast aside and they instead focus on blaming someone/something else that fits what they believe. It’s the same psychosis that Conspiracy Theorists exhibit.

        2. The worst performing schools in the country are basically without fail predominantly black. This study didn’t look at underlying behaviors at all let alone other factors. Tallying percentages of suspensions (which itself seems questionable – do schools actually track all suspensions and the race of the student?) tells little.

          Again, I’ve seen studies that do actually claim blacks are more likely to be suspended for offenses that white students aren’t. But there’s a whole host of issues with studies like those.

          1. “do schools actually track all suspensions and the race of the student?”

            Yes – obsessively.

            “I’ve seen studies that do actually claim blacks are more likely to be suspended for offenses that white students aren’t”

            This was definitely once true, and probably still is in many places. It becomes a chicken-and-the-egg thing, in my opinion – black students notice that they are singled out more and thus tend to be more angry and hostile and less trustful of the system, which inspires them to act out more, which makes them look more statistically bad, and thus they get persecuted harder, and thus act out more, and so on.

            The “solution,” in my District, however, has been simply to put the blinders on and pretend that it’s all chickens, no eggs, so to speak, so that now black kids in my district have learned that they can get away with way more, but they also notice the utter stupidity and blindness of the system, so they’re not any less hostile and alienated . . .

        3. “It’s very possible the reason more black people are suspended is because more black people do things worthy of suspension.”

          That was my first thought. That’s not what’s happening, though. Black kids end up getting suspended over minor things that white kids get a pass on. There’s a tendency to medicalize disruptive white kids, and criminalize black kids. White teachers and administrators are more afraid of black kids, or are more likely to see them as criminals, is my guess. I mean, it’s no secret that blacks are seen, and treated, differently than whites. You are correct that it’s not confined to the South, though.

      2. The obvious solution is to require schools to expel or suspend more white kids, whether they deserve it or not. “Sorry Johnny, looks like you picked the wrong day to come to school white.”

    5. I also don’t get the logic, anyway. More black students are expelled, but they don’t even seem to try and control for the actual behaviors. I know some studies claim to do so, but color me skeptical. Black students make up a higher proportion of suspensions nationwide compared to enrollments.

    6. If they weren’t such fucking racists down south, they’d do things like Minneapolis:

      http://dailycaller.com/2014/11…..-students/

      Minneapolis Public Schools are implementing a new policy aimed at eliminating the gap between the races when it comes to suspensions. Nothing will change for white students, they will still be suspended at the discretion of each school’s principal. But for minority students, specifically black, Hispanic and Native American students, the Minneapolis Schools Superintendent’s office will personally review each case.

      1. Lawsuits, incoming…

      2. Lets just give due process to one race, and not another.

        No problem there, amirite?

    7. So the difference from being equally racist with the North is 5% +/- 2.5% error?

  6. Ice T has always had a separate public persona. All through his raps about pimping and bitches, he was in fact (and I think still is) married and monogamous. Further he is very pro-2A and trained his wife in use of firearms.

    1. There is a video of an interview in Europe where the news guys ask Ice T about guns.

      He replies that guns are necessary to ensure we can protect ourselves from the police.

      1. What’s his stance on double posts and squirrels?

        1. da skwirls haz been bads today

    2. There is a video of an interview in Europe where the news guys ask Ice T about guns.

      He replies that guns are necessary to ensure we can protect ourselves from the police.

  7. Looks like Erika is going to cut a swath right up the middle of my state, so there’s a very good chance I’ll be dead within the next few days:

    http://www.accuweather.com/en/…..1/52021729

    If that turns out to be the case, it’s been fun, and I hope to see most of you on the other side.

    1. So bummed that Danny fizzled out. I’ve always wanted to see a hurricane named after me wreck havoc on my fellow citizens. That would truly make my day.

      1. I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,
        And wish th’ estate o’ th’ world were now undone.?
        Ring the alarum-bell!?Blow, wind! Come, wrack!

      2. We will name the great earthquake that splits our state from the rest of the country after you.

        1. Woo-hoo! I’m going to be famous after I die (from Earthquake Dan)!

    2. Good luck. Hopefully it dies down.

      1. Truthfully, I’m not too worried about it. If it comes straight up the middle of the peninsula like they’re predicting, it’ll lose a lot of strength by the time it makes it up to where I am. At most, lots and lots of rain.

        1. It’s not going to have much strength down here in the southern part of the state either. By the time it gets past Hispanola there won’t be enough time for it to reform into something bad before it gets here. We’ll end up getting 45 MPH winds and 6 inches of rain. We have summer thunderstorms worse than that.

        2. straight up the middle of the peninsula

          Right up the urethra of America’s Dick?

          1. Right up the urethra of America’s Dick?

            Yep, we’ll be getting our very own Prince Albert.

  8. What’s the matter with her boyfriend? I just can’t possibly understand how he can turn all that down.

    http://www.myfox28columbus.com…..eCdq_lVg4k

    1. Dear God! Not even after a fifth of Jack Daniels.

      1. We found shrike’s sister?

        1. Can you imagine what her breath must smell like, with teeth like that?

          1. That’s what you get when fellating them country boys.

          2. A shock-jock I used to listen to, a guy called the “Greaseman,” used to say (on air) that the perfect woman would have fold-back teeth. I imagine hers would probably move pretty easily.

            1. Hey, I remember the Greaseman! Brilliant improvisationist. She can probably just pull them out with her fingers like Charlie on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ (episode ‘Mac and Charlie Die’ for those who aren’t familiar).

      2. So, part llama, or part bottle opener?

        /why not both, amirite?

    2. *mouses over link, contemplates briefly*

      Eh, fuck it, feeling lucky today.

      *clicks link*

      OH FUCK AUHGGHAGGHUGHAGHAGHRGHRG DAMN IT, JB!

      1. You chose poorly

        1. Yeah, right. You know he immediately posted it to Facebook.

      2. Eh, fuck it, feeling lucky today.

        “Right now you’re wondering ‘Did he post six links to fugly women, or just five?’ Well, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky today?’ … Well do you, punk?”

    3. She’s lucky to be alive:

      According to the incident report, Grooms threatened to run over a deputy with a baby stroller when police arrived on the scene.

    4. KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!!

    5. LET cRUSTY TRY IT. HE’LL DO ANYTHING

    6. You suck. Tempted me to click that.

      Gah!

    7. I’m just surprised he didn’t drive a wooden stake through her heart.

  9. This is beyond precious, Walker.

    1. I was already resigning myself to a vote for Trump to make America an 1840s version of itself capable of pissing off Mexico, but you add Ice T to the ticket and I’ll start selling $25,000 tables at the fundraisers.

  10. “I’m a self-made monster of the city streets
    Remotely controlled by hard hip hop beats
    But just livin’ in the city is a serious task
    Didn’t know what the cops wanted
    Didn’t have the time to ask”

  11. I never understood why they cast Ice T to play on that show. He might be the most unbelievable character actor I’ve ever seen.

    1. Actually he’s closer to real detectives i’ve known than the white guys on those shows.

  12. Talking about Tweets? As if anyone in the known universe gives a shit.

    1. Twitter is the most popular social media among the black community. Ergo your disregard for twitter proves your vile and incurable racism.

  13. Can’t hold a candle to Public Enemy:

    It was war they wanted and war they got
    But they wilted in the heat when Miuzi got hot

    1. New album released about a month ago. It’s not all that good though, but Im gonna give it another listen anyway.

  14. Fuck the bird.

  15. Can anyone tell me what’s going on? I don’t speak twitter.

    /turns in millenial card

    I’m guessing Jewwe Walker found a tweet by IceT talking a big game like the Don does and saying he would be a great running mate for him? And then IceT saw that, and said “fuck jesse walker”?

    1. Jewwe Walker

      ANTI-SEMITE! [punches Deli-bro]

    2. I’m pretty sure he was saying fuck Donald Trump, but I’ll take an FU too if it’s on offer.

      Also, it’s spelled “Jewy.”

      1. In my defense, the “s” and “w” keys are right next to each other. Maybe now we can get an edit function?

        1. you know who else liked double s?

        2. No they’re not, they’re adjacent to each other. Bigot.

          1. Either way, it’s clear that the s needs more living room.

            1. Good thinking. Somewhere to resettle, with lots and lots of good farm land.

              1. Lebensraum, as it were.

            2. it’s clear that the s needs more living room.

              “Earth, Hitler, 1938.”

            3. Either way, it’s clear that the s needs more living room.

              The history of White S Flight.

      2. Drop the pretense Jesse, we all know your real name is Moshe Walkericz.

        *whispers* It’s ok, my real name is Ezra Titorberg, this is just my stage name. Your International Zionist Cabal cheque is in the mail.

        1. There is a reason happy hour event tonight at an undisclosed location. I believe they will be serving only Manischevitz and unleavened bread.

          1. You forgot the blood of gentile babies.

            1. “I’ll have the blood libel.”

    3. Jewwe.

      Say the whole word next time!

    4. Jewwe.

      Say the whole word next time!

    5. Does anybody know where I can buy a kosher ham?

      1. Any Jewish Deli should do. With the Public Accommodation laws, they have to serve you!

    6. Jesse Walker, an SJW white knight defending some Daily Beast reporter who lied about the context of what Ice-T was saying about gamers and gamergate, called Ice-t a Trump supporter (read racist-sexist-homophobe) Ice-t responded by saying Jesse is more like Trump then he is.

      1. Where do you get Jesse being an SJW white knight defender?

        1. He outlines his theory here. It’s such a weird reading of the tweets that I actually kind of appreciate it.

          1. Yeah cuz equating Ice-T’s criticism of the press in the context of gamergate to Trump (whom Reason has deemed to be a sexist supported by racists) should totally be read as benign amusing banter and any maliciousness read into it is !!!”WYRDOOOS”!!!!

            1. !!!”WYRDOOOS”!!!!

              There’s just one of you, so it’s more like !!!”WYRDOOO”!!!!

    1. Look at you and your cutting edge pop-culture references.

  16. Just went to the Body Count show in Dallas. He kicked ass.

    1. Does he at least wear a shirt now?

  17. Poor Jesse just called out as bad as Trump.

    Will Suderman now be cherry picking Weigel articles to call you a racist as well?

    Speaking of Ice-T he came out telling gamers of #gamergate to ignore the lying press….

    Next thing you know some Daily Beast piece of shit (Who i am sure is not in a JournoList 3.0 group along with any Reason writers) lied saying Ice-t told gamergate to eat a dick.

    Gee it is almost as if the press and bloggers are a bunch of no talent losers talking shit.

    1. Oh shit

      http://twitter.com/FINALLEVEL/…..2404383744

      Hey Jesse how close are you to reporters at The Daily Beast?

      What motivated you again to slander Ice-T?

    2. I’m trying hard to make sense of what you’re saying, and not succeeding.

      Are you upset that Ice T is not a Trump supporter?

      or upset that Jesse compares Trump’s braggadocio to Ice T’s unique brand of swagger?

      I personally think Body Count should open for The Donald at future events. And The Donald should make that same point re: “Pussification”. Then do a stage dive.

      1. “Are you upset that Ice T is not a Trump supporter?”

        Fuck you. You know that is not true nor has it ever been true.
        And double fuck you for making me say it.
        and triple fuck you for making me say it say it.

        “upset that Jesse compares Trump’s braggadocio to Ice T’s unique brand of swagger?”

        Jesse is circling the wagons to cover for a a buddy Daily Beast reporter who lied about Ice-T’s comments

        1. Jesse is circling the wagons to cover for a a buddy Daily Beast reporter who lied about Ice-T’s comments

          I didn’t know there had been a Daily Beast article about any of this until you mentioned it here, Corning, and now that I’ve Googled it I see it’s by someone I’ve never heard of before.

          (I also don’t know how exactly my Tweet could be construed as an attempt to “cover for” her article, but you don’t seem to be particularly lucid today, so let’s just skip the explanations.)

          1. So you just randomly came across Ice-T’s criticism of the press without looking at its context in regards to gamergate and then randomly equated it to Trump’s criticism of the press?

            Unpack this for me. I may not be lucid but we can assume you are. One would have to be to make that claim.

            How did you come across this tweet? Who pointed it out to you? Why choose to equate Ice-T with Trump? Why spend all that time linking those tweets in your tweets and again linking them in your article without even looking at any contextual tweets he might have made before and after the tweets you linked? Why jump to equating Ice-T to Trump without that same context?

            /popcorn

            1. How did you come across this tweet? Who pointed it out to you? Why choose to equate Ice-T with Trump? Why spend all that time linking those tweets in your tweets and again linking them in your article without even looking at any contextual tweets he might have made before and after the tweets you linked? Why jump to equating Ice-T to Trump without that same context?

              Behold the writing process:

              1. Someone linked to Ice T tweeting “What is Gamergate?” in the thread below my other blog post today.

              2. I followed the link, was amused, visited Ice T’s feed to see what was going on, and spotted a tweet that read like it had been written by a more profane Donald Trump.

              3. I made a joke about this on Twitter.

              4. Ice T responded with a fuck-you-too to Trump.

              5. I put the exchange here on the blog.

              For the record, I like Ice T, though I don’t care much for the show he’s on. And my opinion of Gamergate is “the subject makes my eyes glaze over.”

              1. 1. Someone linked to Ice T tweeting “What is Gamergate?” in the thread below my other blog post today.

                “the subject makes my eyes glaze over.”

                If true then you picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

                – Trump right here on Reason has been accused of attracting racists and being a sexist mirroring the narrative of MSM about him.

                – Gamergate has had the same accusations of racism and sexism leveled at it by pretty much every news outlet on the planet.

                – Both have criticized the press.

                – More recently The press has also claimed gamergate supports Trump. (Trump is the boogy man of the moment. gamergate has also been accused of being ISIS, Nazis, the KKK, rapists, Mass shooters etc)

                – Every person of public note, from game devs to voice actors to porn stars, to game critics who has shown the least bit support or even neutrality toward gamergate has been slandered doxed, blocked, blacklisted, threatened, family contacted, and accused of the most horrible things.

                http://medium.com/@adrianchm/a…..9fce126709

                -So when Ice-T comes out criticizing the press in regards to gamergate and you come in equating that criticism with Reason certified racist sexist Trump you might begin to see how closely your narrative aligns with the narrative being spewed out from every orifice of MSM about gamergate

                1. Or, perhaps Corning, you’re being completely paranoid. But Jesse’s probably into that, what with his weird conspiracy theory fetish.

                  1. “Or, perhaps Corning, you’re being completely paranoid”

                    GameJounroPros exists

                    JournoList exists

                    Sewerrat fucker Weigel exists

                    Journalists collude slander and lie all day long to push their narrative. It is well known and well documented. Feel free to google. In fact it is well documented for at least one Journalist who worked at this very site not so long ago. A journalist who is still beloved by Reason Staff and often quoted and still retains an honorary editorial position here.

                    Furthermore if GamerGate has proven anything is that Journalists will double down with slander and lies whenever they are challenged or their corruption exposed.

                    Did I accuse poor innocent Jesse of horrible things? Maybe. But he is no innocent. He turned a blind eye on Weigel and at the very least he is doing it here. his “the subject makes my eyes glaze over.” claim seems paper thin but plausible. If true then it is definitely willful and not out of bordom considering the context of this article.

                    “Derpy derp Ice-t and gamergate tweets Derpy derp Ice-t is talking about the press derpy derp I know I will mention Reason’s racist of the week: Trump…..”

                    What the fuck ever.

                    Note: I am sure to no one’s surprise sewerrat fucker Weigel called gamergate a bunch of right wing sexists with small dicks. He also name drops gamergate in his articles equating them with whatever “right wing” muckraked horror to expose as THE quintessential example for everyone who is not a progressive like him.

                    1. I’m still wondering what any of the above-Gamergate-frothing has to do with Ice T.

        2. “Fuck you. You know that is not true nor has it ever been true.
          And double fuck you for making me say it.
          and triple fuck you for making me say it say it.’

          Corning = I genuinely had no idea why you were frothing at jesse over what seems to be a tongue-in-cheek joke-post, one involving Ice T.

          (who i note, stars in one of my favorite films of all time, “New Jack City”)

          I have never seen anyone actually get genuinely upset about ‘ice-t related issues’ and wondered wtf you were talking about.

          Lastly, I didn’t make you say anything. I asked if you could clarify what your original comment meant. Given there’s no reference to any ‘daily beast’ anywhere, i still have no idea what your last point is in reference to…. (or why anyone should feels that Ice T is a figure beyond mockery or reproach)

  18. I now follow 2 people on my twitter account.

    Iowahawk, and Ice T.

    i call that progress.

    (as of july it was only The Donald. I unfollowed him because the joke stopped being funny)
