The Mistake of Pandering to Antifa and Black Lives Matter

By Lloyd Marcus | 16 Sep 2017

I cringed when I heard fellow black conservatives whom I respect on TV saying that while they condemn the violent behavior of Antifa/Black Lives Matter some of their grievances against America are warranted. I wanted to scream at my TV, “Hogwash!”

These conservative blacks on TV are merely trying to create peace and civility by agreeing with some of the bogus accusations of racism dreamed up by Leftist intellectuals. They are also trying to prove they are not Uncle Toms. I think it is a huge mistake to pander to lies about America; acting as though very little has changed racially since the 1950s.

As a black person, I know the Black Code. It is the same as what Michael Corleone said to his brother Fredo, “Don’t ever take sides against the family. Ever!” Many blacks and Leftists believe to qualify as an authentic black American, one must harbor a deep-seated resentment against white America.

Watching black conservatives on TV saying Antifa/Black Lives Matter have some legit grievances regarding white privilege, I found myself scratching my head. For the life of me, I have no idea what millennial blacks who have never suffered a moment of “real” racism in their lives are so enraged about; whining, complaining, and destroying property.

Black Lives Matter Targets Jefferson

The Left’s Cultural Revolution intensifies.

By Matthew Vadum | 18 Sep 2017

The vandalization of a statute of University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson by students and Black Lives Matter rioters suggests the Left is escalating the ugly Cultural Revolution-style upheaval that President Obama encouraged in office.

This iconoclastic insurrectionism is spreading, as angry left-wing mobs topple statues of figures from the past they dislike. In Chicago, Bishop James Dukes of Liberation Christian Center is demanding that the names and statues of George Washington and Andrew Jackson be removed from parks. Others want Woodrow Wilson’s name excised from buildings and schools because he supported racial segregation. The list goes on and on.

The disorder in Charlottesville comes as a monument in Baltimore honoring Francis Scott Key, who wrote the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was spray-painted with the words “racist anthem.” Leftist writer Jefferson Morley suggested on Tucker Carlson’s TV show that the vandalism was justified, but more on that in a moment.

As about a hundred students chanted “No Trump, no KKK, no racist UVA,” the Jefferson monument on the school’s main quad was draped in black and adorned with signs reading, “Black Lives Matter,” “TJ is a racist,” and “Fuck white supremacy.”

Here’s the antidote to St. Louis riots and rage

By Jesse Lee Peterson | 18 Sep 2017

The more you give in to angry people, the worse they get.

Case in point: black protesters in St. Louis, Missouri.

Violent Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with police after ex-St. Louis cop Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of drug dealer Anthony Lamar-Smith.

Smith was attempting to flee from police when he slammed his vehicle into a police cruiser and took off, causing a dangerous high-speed chase. Stockley, who is white, claimed he shot the suspect, who is black, in self-defense because he thought Smith was reaching for a gun.

According to St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson, the prosecutors failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Stockley did not act in self-defense.

Smith was out on parole for convictions of drug distribution, theft and illegal gun possession at the time of the shooting.

But facts don’t matter to angry blacks. The acquittal of Stockley gave Black Lives Matter license to riot and assault police. What began as a protest march erupted with a wild mob tearing through downtown St. Louis and through the city’s affluent areas. Protesters said they wanted whites to feel the pain.

Protesters burned American flags, damaged police cruisers and destroyed businesses. At least 10 officers were assaulted with bricks and bottles; 23 suspects were arrested. The violence caused local businesses to cancel major venues. Protesters also temporarily shut down a major mall in St. Louis. They chanted, “You kill one of us, we kill your economy,” and they carried Black Lives Matters signs.

Here is the FDR Quote about Robert E. Lee That Liberals Never Wanted You to See

By Thomas | 17 Aug 2017

Robert E. Lee monuments are being vandalized and removed across the country. After Charlottesville, the hate directed at Lee has reached an extreme level. If you don’t want these statues removed, you will be called a racist.

One such statue that will likely be removed is in Dallas, Texas. Activists believe it’s a “sign of enduring legacy of white supremacy in the South and across America,” according to a local television network.

Lee thought slavery was a great evil and he worked to reunite America after the Civil War.

More Violence

White cop acquitted in death of a black man, violent protests ensue

By Aaron Colen | 15 Sep 2017

Violent protests have broken out in St. Louis, Missouri, after former police officer Jason Stockley was found not guilty of murdering Anthony Smith in 2011 after a high-speed chase following a suspected drug deal.

  • Four officers have been injured and one police car has been vandalized.
  • Protestors have been pepper sprayed for attempting to block police travel.
  • Police blocked protestors from getting on a major highway, so they marched to police headquarters.
  • Local businesses closed and sent employees home early due to the protests.

Seattle Teachers Enforce Black Lives Matter Indoctrination

A Maoist-style reeducation fest approaches in Seattle schools.

blm-tshirt
Thousands of taxpayer-supported Seattle teachers are planning to don Black Lives Matter t-shirts this week in public schools and force-feed left-wing propaganda to their students about race in an effort to draw attention to the systemic racism they imagine is embedded in the public education regime.

The shirts say “Black Lives Matter” and “We Stand Together,” which is almost identical in meaning to the Hillary Clinton campaign slogan “Standing Together.”

The Black Lives Matter cult is animated by a hatred of normal American values. Its members idolize convicted, unrepentant black militants and cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal and have declared “war” on law enforcement. Its members openly call for police officers to be assassinated. Sympathizer Micah X. Johnson answered the call murdering five cops in cold blood during a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas in July. Black Lives Matter, which is vehemently anti-white, ought to be designated a domestic terrorist organization for fomenting a war against police, critics say.

The October 19 event is being run by Social Equality Educators (SEA), a group of teachers within the Seattle Education Association (SEA), a local collective bargaining unit. A political faction, SEE runs candidates for offices in the SEA.

Black Lives Matter Infiltrating Public Schools

Teachers engage in week-long protest to promote a movement built on race hatred.

black_lives_matter_sign_minneapolis_protest

The toxic Black Lives Matter narrative is continuing to infiltrate our mainstream culture. It is even finding its way into our public schools. Case in point is the plan by about 1000 teachers in the Seattle public school system, with the strong backing of the school system administration, to wear “Black Lives Matter” T-shirts this week. Some of the educators’ t-shirts include a raised fist, not exactly a symbol of racial harmony and peaceful dialogue.

The participants in this solidarity “wear-in” also want a school curriculum that indoctrinates students to counter what one Black Lives Matter activist and Seattle high school teacher, Jesse Hagopian, called “institutional racism”and the “multiple oppressions that our kids face.” Hagopian opposes standardized testing as an example of such institutional racism.

The Seattle Education Association (SEA) Representative Assembly passed a resolution unanimously supporting the Black Lives Matter initiative. The SEA is a public teachers’ special interest organization. Its resolution stated that SEA will “endorse and participate in an action wearing Black Lives Matter t-shirts on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 with the intent of showing solidarity, promoting anti-racist practices in our schools, and creating dialogue in our schools and communities.”

The superintendent of schools also supports the demonstration of solidarity with Black Lives Matter on school premises.

The Seattle school system is not the bastion of “institutional racism” that Black Lives Matter and its supporters are making it out to be. Seattle is one of the most progressive cities in the nation. Its school district had passed a landmark “Ensuring Educational and Racial Equity Policy” in August of 2012, which called for the elimination of “the racial predictability and disproportionality in all aspects of education and its administration.” It also mandated the use of a Racial Equity Tool to ensure that “race be clearly called out and institutional and structural racism be addressed within our own organization.” The intent was to devise policies and curricula that close the “opportunity gap” holding students of color back.

War on Cops Surges in California

Body-armored gunman attempts to assassinate two officers.

adam-powell-101716-jpg

On Sunday, October 16, in the latest in a series of attacks on police officers nationwide, an armed gunman wearing body armor attempted to assassinate two police officers in Vallejo, California, near San Francisco.

Adam Powell, a 41-year-old African American, brandished an assault rifle with a 70-round magazine and targeted the two officers at a Starbucks coffee shop. When Powell’s rifle malfunctioned and would not fire, officers gave chase and according to a police statement, the gunman “continued to manipulated the weapon and presented himself as a lethal threat to the officers.” The officers fired and struck Powell three times without killing the attacker, now in hospital.

Powell had served prison time for robbery, so he was no allowed to possess any kind of firearm. Vallejo police chief Andrew Bidou told reporters Powell had stalked the two officers, and intended to “assassinate” them. The pair, he said, were, “ambushed by a man with superior firepower.”

That same day, Powell had fled a house in Suisun City where a two-year-old was shot and critically injured. The events, Bidou told reporters, “underscore the extreme danger our officers face on a daily basis.”

Days earlier, Trenton Trevon Lovell, 27, gunned down Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant Steven Owen in what police called a “calculated execution.” Owen was responding to a burglary call when Lovell, 27, shot him with a stolen gun, then stood over his body and shot the downed officer four more times.

The Evil That Is George Soros PT 4

soros-fergSOCIALIST, ANTI-AMERICAN BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS FUNDED THE FERGUSON MISSOURI COMMUNIST AND ANTI-WHITE PROTEST GROUPS

Liberal billionaire George Soros has played a critical role in financing the Ferguson, Missouri, protest movement, giving at least $33 million in one year to back already established groups that “emboldened” on-the-ground activists there, The Washington Times reports.
Soros’ backing “gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day cause celebré,” the paper said.

Soros Group Advocates Violence Against Cops in Baltimore

Social media pages run by the George Soros-founded Open Society Foundations appeared to justify violence in Baltimore, in particular against police.
Yesterday, two of the foundation’s social media pages sent a Vox article out to their followers entitled, “This is the perfect response to anyone calling for nonviolence in Baltimore,” with an alternate headline reading, “The important thing everyone calling for nonviolence in Baltimore fails to say.”
