Editor's note: This is the third part in Frontpage Mag's new series on Racist Mayors. (See previous parts below this article). Stay tuned for more installments.

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser may have more self-control than other Democrat big-city mayors, yet she still manages to push the same racist Black Lives Matter propaganda that gives aid and comfort to rioters and insurrectionists who hate America.

Bowser, architect of some of the strictest pandemic lockdown protocols in the nation –she banned dancing at D.C. weddings— is generally shrewd enough to avoid in-your-face, overtly racist gaffes like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s announcement that she would only be granting 1-on-1 interviews to black or brown journalists, but the Washington mayor embraces critical race theory and wants to tear down statues of accomplished white people.

That doesn’t mean she always sees eye-to-eye with the radical activists of Black Lives Matter, but Bowser does her best to get their toxic message of social grievance out.

Under her leadership, the “defund the police” message that was added to the words “Black Lives Matter” that she had painted on the street in Black Lives Matter Plaza, the stretch of 16th Street Northwest in sight of the front of the White House that was appropriated by radicals, disappeared two months after activists painted the phrase.

She wrote in an op-ed in the Washington Post that she decided to create Black Lives Matter Plaza when she “came face to face with a line of federal police blocking a street in my legal jurisdiction.” 

“Here we were in my hometown, in the capital of the United States of America, with people all around us protesting for change, demanding reforms to the racist and broken systems that killed George Floyd and so many Black Americans before him. But instead of bringing the country together, the federal government was blocking the streets. It was clear the president [i.e. Donald Trump] was doing everything he could to tear us apart.”

While Black Lives Matter and Antifa ran wild in the nation’s capital last year, Bowser did her best to help the looters.

In June 2020, as the District was filled with federal troops and federal law enforcement, Bowser whined that then-President Trump was doing too much to combat race rioters.

The mayor wrote Trump a letter claiming that the deployed units were "inflaming" and "adding to the grievances" of the people sacking pricey Georgetown shops to protest the non-police-involved death of career criminal George Floyd.

"The protestors have been peaceful, and last night, the Metropolitan Police Department did not make a single arrest. Therefore, I am requesting that you withdraw all extraordinary law enforcement and military presence from Washington, DC," the mayor wrote.

She complained that "unidentified federal personnel patrolling the streets of Washington, DC post both safety and national security risks." Switching into black helicopter mode, Bowser claimed the "additional, unidentified units" were operating "outside of established chains of command" and adding to the confusion by not displaying "identifying insignia."

In response to the rioting over the death of St. George of Minneapolis, Bowser appointed a woke committee last year to recommend statues of dead white males to tear down and public spaces to be defaced or renamed.

The committee was tasked with “evaluating named DC Government-owned facilities and making recommendations as to what, if any, actions need to be taken if the namesake is inconsistent with DC values and in some way encouraged the oppression of African Americans and other communities of color or contributed to our long history of systemic racism.”

Committee co-chairs, Beverly Perry, a senior advisor to the mayor, and Richard Reyes-Gavilan, executive director of the District’s public library system, said their “decision-making prism focused on key disqualifying histories, including participation in slavery, systemic racism, mistreatment of, or actions that suppressed equality for, persons of color, women and LGBTQ communities and violation of the DC Human Right[s] Act.”

The library system, by the way, honored communist Angela Y. Davis, calling her “an outspoken advocate for the oppressed and exploited,” which shouldn’t be all that surprising to anyone who has spent time in D.C.

Among the statues and memorials the committee wanted removed were those named after George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, James Monroe, Francis Scott Key, and William Henry Harrison.

Unlike many of her colleagues, Bowser does not support defunding the police.

Last year the D.C. Council passed a budget-slashing $15 million from the Metropolitan Police Department over her objections.

“This reduction would result in a level of sworn officers that has not been seen in DC since the 1990s, with seemingly no analysis on the impact this cut would have on the deployment of officers, officer response times to calls for service, and on community and neighborhood safety," Bowser wrote in a letter to the council. "Fewer officers would protect a District population that has increased by more than 17 percent, and where calls for police service have increased by 21 percent in the last decade alone. These reductions will be felt across all eight wards."

But she’s fine with filling cops’ minds with racist drivel.

In 2018, Bowser forced members of the Metropolitan Police Department to be indoctrinated with critical race theory as part of a training program. “We are committed to accountability to strengthen the bonds of trust between MPD and our residents,” she said in unveiling the woke brainwashing.

Maybe this explains why this writer saw a parked police car in D.C. that had what appeared to be a rolled-up white tee shirt on the dashboard with the word “WOKE” in large letters.

In February of this year, Bowser announced she would create the city’s first Office of Racial Equity.

“As we continue our recovery into 2021, we have a unique opportunity to double down on our efforts to put racial equity at the forefront and revitalize systems to ensure a more inclusive and prosperous future for all Washingtonians,” said Bowser. “We know that when more Washingtonians are given a fair shot, we are a stronger and more resilient city.”

The new office “will focus on developing an infrastructure to ensure policy decisions and District programs are evaluated through an equity lens and will be housed in the Office of the City Administrator,” according to a District press release.

“Only by building systems that are intentional in their design to account for our city’s legacy of racism and discrimination and are targeted to expand access will every District resident truly have the same opportunities to prosper in our society,” said Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie who introduced legislation creating the office.

Of course every single mayor of Washington, D.C., since the post became popularly elected in 1974 has been a Democrat, so if the District has a legacy of racism and discrimination those 7 left-wing mayors may have had something to do with it.

And in her mind, Muriel Bowser is paying it forward.

Social Media Blitz Exposes Campus Racism Triggered by Critical Race Theory

Rooting out the new racism espoused by the radical Left.

A cutting-edge social media campaign conducted in April and May by the David Horowitz Freedom Center targeted and exposed the racist and segregationist actions and programming of prestigious colleges and universities taken under the guise of “anti-racism” and Critical Race Theory. Ten prestigious institutions of higher education including Harvard University, the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, and the University of Minnesota were outed for their racist leanings and decisions.  

The universities targeted by the Freedom Center’s campaign were included among the “Most Racist” for varied reasons, but the unifying theme was their allegiance to the new philosophy of Critical Race Theory (CRT), a radical revision of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream that each American be judged “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” While Dr. King and the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s promoted “colorblindness,” CRT pushes the opposite view, that our character and our place in society is predetermined by our skin color.

As Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo explained recently in an interview with The Atlantic, “Critical race theorists believe that American institutions, such as the Constitution and legal system, preach freedom and equality, but are mere ‘camouflages’ for naked racial domination. They believe that racism is a constant, universal condition: it simply becomes more subtle, sophisticated, and insidious over the course of history. In simple terms, critical race theory reformulates the old Marxist dichotomy of oppressor and oppressed, replacing the class categories of bourgeoisie and proletariat with the identity categories of White and Black. But the basic conclusions are the same: in order to liberate man, society must be fundamentally transformed through moral, economic, and political revolution.”

Guided by this ahistorical revolutionary subtext, America’s colleges and universities have increasingly promoted racially segregated classes and “anti-racist” training programs which actually endorse racist tropes and promote racial conflict.  To combat this return to Jim Crow, the Freedom Center published a report and created a new website, TopTenRacistUniversities.org, exposing the Top Ten Most Racist Colleges and Universities in America. The social media campaign served to highlight this report and its conclusions and bring them to a wider audience.

Harvard University, #1 on the Freedom Center’s list of most racist universities, was sued for blatant discrimination against Asian applicants in spite of their superior academic achievements, made possible by characterizing their personalities as “lacking” and “one dimensional.”

Smith College, #2 on the Freedom Center’s list, delivered an elaborate apology to a black student who alleged racism at the hands of Smith employees. Even after the student’s narrative was proven by an independent investigation to be both malicious and false, Smith used it as an opportunity to force its white, working-class employees to undergo mandatory “anti-racism” training and attend “White accountability” sessions. The lying student received no punishment.

The University of Southern California, #3 on the list, suspended a linguistics professor from teaching a class after he used an example of a Chinese phrase that phonetically resembles the N-word.

Georgetown University, #4 on the list, immediately fired one professor and disciplined another because they dared to discuss and lament the poor academic performance of African-American law students—an actual anti-racist sentiment.

The University of Pittsburgh made the list at #5 for forcing all incoming freshmen to take a mandatory class in “Anti-Black Racism” which teaches that “color blindness” and “the myth of meritocracy” amount to microaggressions.

The University of Central Florida clocked in at #6 for conducting a witch-hunt and firing a tenured professor after he made posts on social media questioning the existence of “systemic racism” and mocking the concept of “white privilege.”

The University of Minnesota was named to the list at #7 for conducting an online class titled “Recovery from White Conditioning” which presented a “12-step program” to make white students aware of their innate “white supremacy.” 

Cornell University made the list at #8 for offering a throwback to the Jim Crow-era—a racially segregated physical education class titled “BIPOC Rock Climbing” which barred white students from entry.

Elon University earned the #9 spot on the list for urging “white-identifying” students to join a weekly “White Caucus” Zoom meeting. “White caucuses allow white-identfying [sic] allies to have these conversations in a way that does not burden or re-traumatize people of color,” an email from the university explained.

Finally, Brandeis University earned the #10 spot on the list for racially segregating students in discussions about racism. Brandeis officials attempted to justify this segregation by claiming it was an issue of safety not to allow whites and blacks to converse about racial issues until the white students have been sufficiently shamed for their innate racism.

Using eye-catching graphics and memes, the Freedom Center’s social media campaign was able to place direct evidence of these racist outrages directly into the Facebook and Instagram feeds of students, alumni, and fellow educators from each university. Reaction was swift and condemnatory.

“As a graduate of this school, I find this very disturbing,” one Elon alum commented on the social media postings targeting his alma mater. “I need more information regarding this unacceptable issue before making contribution decisions.”  His comment was “liked” by 24 others.

“This is why I will not send them a penny,” declared a Brandeis alum from the class of 1971.

“They should never [have] fired that professor,” an alum of the University of Central Florida commented on the Freedom Center’s report. “UCF has turned into a garbage pit that continues to embarrass me.”

“I’ve been ashamed of Pitt since the Buckley incidents,” an alum of the University of Pittsburgh commented. “I stopped contributing long ago and this incident confirms I made the right decision. Sad.”

“I taught Legal Research and Writing at Georgetown in ’90 and I can tell you I struggled with minority students who could barely write sentences, let alone a legal brief,” commented a former instructor in defense of the Georgetown professor who was fired for commenting on the poor performance of African-American students. “I wanted to fail a couple of students but that is ‘just not done’ for the most part at Georgetown University Law Center. The racist accusation is crazy. If anything is crazy, it’s letting in unqualified students to meet a quota.” 

During the six-week social media campaign, the Freedom Center’s ads exposing racist colleges and universities reached over 377,000 individuals across all 10 targeted campuses and garnered over 1.3 million total impressions, 20,000 clicks to view the full report on the TopTenRacistUniversities.org website, and 400,000 viewings of the accompanying videos hosted on YouTube. This is an incredible reach for a campaign of this size and scope and successfully exposed the radical manifestations of Critical Race Theory in our universities to large numbers of current students and alumni. A follow-up campaign encouraged alumni to sign letters protesting these outrages to the president or chancellor of each university and remains live on the campaign website.

“Diversity Training programs are not about racial sensitivity,” explained Freedom Center founder David Horowitz. “They are about the demonization of white people and the constitutional order of individual freedom, equality and accountability the American Founders created. These campuses are openly promoting racism in the name of ‘social justice.’”

Vaccinated People SHOCKED When Magnet Sticks to Injection Site

NO JOKE: Magnetism INTENTIONALLY Added to 'Vaccine' to Force mRNA Through Entire Body

Why is this bizarre side effect happening and why is the media covering it up?

Remarkable footage uploaded to Banned.video proves a bizarre magnetic side effect is happening to some people who receive the Covid-19 vaccine.

In a video report by The Liberty Broadcast, the crew tests whether a refrigerator magnet will stick to Covid-19 vaccine injection sites, as demonstrated in countless viral videos on social media.


The theory had reportedly been debunked according to Newsweek and other mainstream outlets; however, when tested on vaccinated bar-goers visiting Austin’s famous Sixth Street, the magnet sticks to them.

“The magnets appear to stick to the arm on the site where the COVID-19 vaccine shot was allegedly administered (apparently proving the microchip conspiracy theory). But experts told Newsweek that a magnet will not stick to someone’s arm because of the injection,” Newsweek wrote last month.

Meanwhile, the exact same phenomenon is being witnessed and documented across the globe.

As the side effect continues to be proven real, it begs the question: why is the establishment trying to hide it?

One reason could be that news of a magnetized vaccine injection site would likely alarm people and discourage them from seeking the vaccine.

A more sinister motive, however, could be that the medical establishment is trying to keep the public in the dark that the vaccines contain magnetized proteins synthesized for mass mind control.

Whatever the reason, the random street experiment above proves the phenomenon is definitely happening to certain vaccinated members of the population.

Chinese Scientist Sought Vaccine Patent Before Virus Outbreak, Fauci Discussed Lab Leak in Global Briefing

Chinese Scientist Sought Vaccine Patent Before Virus Outbreak, Fauci Discussed Lab Leak in Global Briefing


SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/chinese-scientist-sought-vaccine-patent-before-virus-outbreak-fauci-discussed-lab-leak-in-global-briefing/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

More evidence surfaced this week that the China Virus, known as COVID-19, was created in a lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

Surfacing this week are reports that a Chinese military scientist filed for a virus vaccine patent before the Asiatic pathogen went global and sickened millions. Also, U.S. virus pointman Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, told world health officials the virus might well have been concocted in a lab.

Those developments come on top of myriad reports that Shi Zhengli, China’s notorious Bat Lady, who is an expert in bat coronaviruses, created the virulent bug, which then escaped the lab. 

Mysterious Death

The scientist who applied for the patent was Yusen Zhou, the Daily Mail reported, citing its sister newspaper, the Australian.

“Zhou, who worked for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), lodged the paperwork on behalf of the Chinese political party on February 24, 2020,” the newspaper wrote:

That date was just five weeks after China first confirmed human transmission of the coronavirus. 

Zhou is also said to have ‘worked closely’ with scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), including Shi Zhengli — the deputy director of the lab who is famous for her research on coronavirus in bats. 

Their relationship is likely to strengthen speculation that the virus leaked from the lab and that China was aware that it was spreading between humans long before they alerted the international community. 

Zhou mysteriously died a few months after he applied for the patent. The Red scientist had worked at the University of Minnesota and the New York Blood Center

That fact raises the question of just how much science know-how, paid for by American taxpayers, the Chinese Reds are taking from American institutions. And how Fauci’s outfit subsidized the Bat Lady’s microbial monkeyshines.

Some of those subsidies went through a cut-out, EcoHealth, whose chieftain Peter Daczak, is a leading lab-leak denier. Last week’s dump of Fauci’s e-mails included a note from Daczak, who thanked Fauci for trying to debunk the lab-leak theory.

Gottlieb on Fauci

But Fauci apparently thought that hypothesis had merit. Speaking to John Dickerson on Face the Nation, Scott Gottlieb, who ran the Food and Drug Administration for President Trump, said the virus guru suspected a possible lab leak.

“I was told at that time back in the spring that Dr. Fauci had gone over to a meeting of world health leaders in Europe around the World Health Assembly, and actually brief them on the information that they were looking at, that this could have been a potential lab leak, that this strain looked unusual,” he said:

So those discussions were going on. And I was told that by a very senior official in the Trump administration. I’ve reconfirmed that conversation. That happened, you know, at the time contemporaneously with that meeting over a year ago. So I think early on when they looked at the strain, they had suspicions. And in a closer analysis — and it takes time to do that analysis, dispelled some of those suspicions. 

Gottlieb said the pandemic most certainly requires a national security assessment. 

As The New American reported in early May, at the same time the Bat Lady was creating coronaviruses that could attack human tissue, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) wanted to create bioweapons.

The Australian disclosed the contents of a 263-page PLA report that discussed a “new era of genetic weapons” that can be “artificially manipulated into an emerging human ­disease virus, then weaponized and unleashed in a way never seen before.”

The Reds would aerosolize those weapons and unleash them on an unsuspecting country. The resulting pandemonium — just what we saw last year with the pandemic panic and resulting lockdowns — would overwhelm hospitals and medical facilities. The healthcare system would collapse.

U.S. intelligence officials have believed since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak that the China Virus sprung from the Bat Lady’s lab, but they also believe the release was accidental.

District Must Reinstate Teacher Who Opposed Transgenderism

Judge Orders School District to Reinstate PE Teacher Who Opposed Transgender Policy

On Tuesday, a judge ordered the Loudoun County, Va., school district to reinstate a physical education teacher who dared to speak out against a policy that would require teachers to endorse transgender identity by using female pronouns to refer to male students and vice versa. Roughly 24 hours later, the district suspended the teacher and barred him from setting foot on school property. The judge ruled that this suspension likely violated the teacher’s First Amendment right to free speech.

“The Court finds that the Plaintiff’s speech and religious content are central to the determination made by the Defendants to suspend Plaintiff’s employment. The Court further finds that the weight of the evidence and the totality of the circumstances, clearly show that the four prongs for issuance of a temporary injunction have been satisfied,” Judge James E. Plowman, Jr. of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit of Virginia, wrote in his order.

Plowman granted Byron [Tanner] Cross, the PE teacher, the temporary injunction he sought. Under the terms of the injunction, the school district “shall immediately reinstate [Cross] to his position as it was prior to the issuance of his suspension and remove the ban that was placed upon him from all buildings and grounds of Loudoun County Public Schools.” The injunction will remain until December 31, 2021.

“Nobody should be punished for expressing concern about a proposed government policy, especially when the government invites comment on that policy. For that reason, we are pleased at the court’s decision to halt Loudoun County Public Schools’ retaliation against Tanner Cross while his lawsuit continues,” Michael Farris, president and CEO of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the law firm representing the teacher, said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Educators are just like everybody else—they have ideas and opinions that they should be free to express. Advocating for solutions they believe in should not cost them their jobs,” Farris added. “School officials singled out his speech, offered in his private capacity at a public meeting, as ‘disruptive’ and then suspended him for speaking his mind. That’s neither legal nor constitutional.”

“Dozens of other teachers have shared their beliefs on various policies without retaliation; Tanner deserves to be treated with the same respect,” the ADF president concluded.

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) suspended Cross less than 48 hours after he dared to speak out against LCPS Policy 8040 and the proposed changes to LCPS Policy 8350, which would require teachers to refer to students by preferred gender pronouns, rather than the pronouns that correspond to a student’s biological sex as male or female.

“My name is Tanner Cross, and I am speaking out of love for those who suffer with gender dysphoria,” Cross, the PE teacher at Leesburg Elementary, said during the public comment segment of the school board meeting. “Sixty Minutes this past Sunday interviewed over 30 young people who transitioned but they felt led astray because lack of pushback or how easy it was to make physical changes to their bodies in just three months. They are now detransitioning.”

Cross referenced the 60 Minutes segment on detransitioners in order to highlight the danger of transgender ideology. In pursuit of false gender identities, men and women have permanently mutilated their bodies, only to later reject the transgender identity.

“It’s not my intention to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face when ready,” Cross insisted. “We condemn school policies like 8040 and 8350 because it would damage children, defile the holy image of God. I love all of my students, but I will never lie to them, regardless of the consequences.”

“I’m a teacher but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion, it’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God,” Cross concluded.

RecommendedVa. School District SUED For Retaliating Against Teacher’s Free Speech

LCPS claimed Cross’s remarks had been “disruptive,” but Judge Plowman noted that the school had received only five emails from parents complaining about Cross’s remarks before the district suspended him. The school has at least 391 students, so “the Court views the magnitude of parental complaints to be de minimis given the size of the Leesburg Elementary School community.” Therefore the complaints “could not reasonably be construed as so disruptive to school operations to justify the decision taken by [LCPS].”

Since Cross spoke out on a matter of public concern, in his own private capacity outside of his duties at work, Plowman ruled that LCPS’s “retaliatory action adversely affected [Cross’s] constitutionally protected speech.” The judge ruled that Cross is likely to succeed on the merits of his case, that failure to issue the order would cause Cross “irreparable harm,” that Cross posed no serious threat to justify the suspension, and that granting him relief from the suspension is in the public interest.

It is heartening to see Cross restored to work after LCPS egregiously violated his rights. While school districts across the country may seek to enforce transgender ideology, this ruling sends a clear message that school districts cannot retaliate against employees who voice their disagreement with transgenderism.

Cross’s legal battle is far from over, but at least LCPS cannot bar him from school property for the duration of this case.
