A lot of young men I teach do not have "too much confidence." This is more of the war on boys, if you ask me.

From Guy Benson, at Town Hall, "Top Democrat: Yes, 'Elements' of the GOP Base are 'Animated by Racism'."
Benson's referring to Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel, who accused Republicans of having "elements that are animated by racism."
Perhaps, although actual survey data find a slightly higher figure for Democrat racism, which is what we'd expect. Here's Benson's post at Hot Air from February, "Re: MSNBC postscript on race":
Well, well well. A perfectly even distribution of racist attitudes across both major political parties, with Republicans being very slightly less racist than Democrats. These data points came, incidentally, from a 2002 UC Berkeley project...
Democrats: The party of racism.

Far-Left Max Blumenthal: Key Inspiration for #Democrat Murder Suspect Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr. — #JewishCommunityCenter
Here's the full post at L.I., "The Overland Park murders, anti-Zionist conspiracy theories, and the blame game."
Plus, at Pamela's, "Antisemite Max Blumenthal et al Inspired the Nazi-Klan Leader’s Jewish Massacre in Kansas":
Here again we see the bloody carnage of the hard left ginning up their base to kill. Last year, SPLC member tried to kill Family Research Council president Tony Perkins. And now yesterday’s passover slaughter in Kansas. The vicious left aligned with the jihad force incited follower Glenn Miller to murder. Mr. Miller himself, a proud Ku Klux Klan leader and avowed antisemite, found inspiring words from the one Jew he likes–Max Blumenthal. His rants were filled with the antisemitic tripe of Walt and Mearsheimer, John B. Judis and other realists and leftists, whose writings are filled with the same disdain for “neo-conservatives” who are always described as “warmongering.”Remember, modern anti-Semitism is virtually an entirely left-wing phenomenon, growing in tandem with global communism's campaign for the elimination of Israel. See Ben Cohen, "The Ideological Foundations of the Boycott Campaign Against Israel."
And don't forget, Max Blumenthal is a Democrat (his first book was a literally unhinged attack on the Republican Party). Indeed, his father Sidney Blumenthal, one of Bill and Hillary Clinton's closest aides and confidantes, launched a major campaign to defend son Max against "liberal" (liberal!) attacks on his rabidly anti-Semitic book, Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel. (Yes, Max Blumenthal is so bad that he's even too much for Jewish leftist Israel-bashers!)
As we've seen with the murders committed by Democrat suspect Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., the ideological left is literally intent on a new Holocaust for the 21st century. It's something I've written about for a long time. It's tragic that Democrat Party hatred and eliminationism is now bearing fruit. But then again, all the more reason to stand up against leftist evil.
'I want you to know that I came upon the scene very, very quickly. I was there before the police, and I was there before the ambulance, and I knew immediately that they were in heaven. And I know that they're in heaven together...'
At LAT, "Gunman kills 3 at Jewish centers outside Kansas City."
Also at KSHB Kansas City, "Mother of shooting victim awes vigil crowd with words of faith" (via Nice Deb).
Authorities will pursue hate crimes charges against the suspect, Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr.
At the New York Times, "Prosecutors to Charge Suspect With Hate Crime in Kansas Shooting":
Prosecutors said Monday that they would file hate-crime charges against a white supremacist accused of killing three people outside a Jewish Community Center and at a nearby retirement community in a suburb of Kansas City, Mo.Yes, the Ku Klux Klan, which is a Democrat Party fraternal organization going back to the Reconstruction era. Klan Democrats voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, because they reviled blacks, and their top Senate cyclops still served into the 21st century. The Democrat/KKK/Party remains the party of exterminationist Jew-hatred.
Speaking at a news conference on Monday in the suburb of Overland Park, Kan., the authorities said that the charges would be filed against Frazier Glenn Miller, 73, of Aurora, Mo., who had spoken and written frequently over the years about his hatred for Jews, blacks, immigrants and others.
Prosecutors declined to say when Mr. Miller, who is also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, will be formally charged, but said the case would be presented to a grand jury.
“We believe this to be a hate crime,” the Overland Park police chief, John Douglass, said. “We believe his motivation was to attack a Jewish facility.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization that tracks hate groups, said Mr. Cross was the founder and grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan...

Today the greatest threat to the Jewish people comes not from stray neo-Nazis but from Islamist terror and a genocidal theocracy in Iran that seeks nuclear capability. But whether focused on the remnants of old threats or the peril from the new, Jew hatred remains an unfortunate fact of life. While the crime that took place in Kansas City should not distort our view of American society or cause us to forget that barriers to acceptance of Jews have been almost totally erased, it should serve as a reminder that Jew hatred is far from dead.Very far.
Picked Up at Twitchy: "Former 'KKK grand dragon': Background of Jewish community center murder suspect coming to light..."
Actually, as I've said, the suspect ran for office numerous times, but he ran in 1984 and 2006 as a Democrat, and he was a leader of the Ku Klux Klan, a Democrat Party organization going back to Reconstruction.
oh hai Liberal Jews.....a DEMONcrat shot up two Jewish facilities killing three and @WhiteHouse lip zipped. Thanks for your vote.— Honkey Tonk Infidel (@lidsamy) April 14, 2014
A man opened fire outside a Jewish Community Center and a nearby retirement community in a suburb of Kansas City, Mo., on Sunday afternoon, killing three people before he was taken into custody.The Times mentions that Miller "made several unsuccessful runs for public office," although specifically omitting that he first ran as a Democrat in South Carolina's gubernatorial primary in 1984. (More at the link, FWIW.)
The man, who was identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Mo., in Johnson County booking records. He was charged with first-degree murder and was scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
The suspect, 73, is a former Ku Klux Klan leader with a history of anti-Semitism and racism, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization that tracks hate groups. It identified him as Frazier Glenn Miller, 73, commonly known as Glenn Miller, and said he was the founder and grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
The shootings took place in Overland Park, Kan., a major suburb located just across the state line from Kansas City, Mo. Overland Park is the second-biggest city in Kansas and has a population of about 170,000.
A doctor and his 14-year-old grandson were killed in the parking lot at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and a woman was killed a short time later in a parking lot at Village Shalom, a senior living community about a mile away, the police said.
Mr. Miller was taken into custody on Sunday afternoon at a local elementary school near Village Shalom, the police said. In video taken by KMBC, a local television station, the suspect yelled “Heil Hitler!” while sitting in a police car.
The Southern Poverty Law Center said it sued Mr. Miller in the 1980s for intimidating African-Americans, and he has had several run-ins with the law since then. He served six months in prison after he was held in criminal contempt for violating the terms of the court order that settled that lawsuit. He also served three years in federal prison for weapons charges and for plotting robberies and the assassination of the center’s founder, Morris Dees. As part of his plea bargain, he testified against other Klan leaders in a 1988 trial.
The police said it was too early in the investigation to determine whether the attacks were a hate crime...
NBC News picked up Miller's KKK partisanship, as Instapundit points out, "NBC NEWS: KANSAS CITY SHOOTER IS FORMER DEMOCRAT GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE, KLANSMAN. Okay, they pushed the Democrat part down a ways in the story. Can you imagine the glee at the SPLC, though? They’ll fundraise off this for a decade."
Yeah, they just pushed that part way down, but at least they got it in there.
