The communist government of Cuba has cracked down on the protests that began this past weekend, using violence to quell otherwise mostly peaceful demonstrations. It is now reported that a Cuban protester has died after police allegedly opened fire on a crowd of protesters. Many others have been arrested, including well-known dissidents, civil-rights activists, and artists.

On Wednesday, Daily Mail reported that police allegedly opened fire on a peaceful demonstration, killing 36-year-old Diubis Laurencio Tejeda. And an anti-government reporter was arrested live on TV. Waldo Herrera, a resident of the area where this took place, said, “I think the Communists have lost control, they won’t have a solution to this situation.”

Tejeda’s death was confirmed by the Orwellian-named Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Cuba, though it did not confirm reports that Tejeda died from a gunshot as security forces opened fire on a group of protesters. Daily Mail reported, “Hundreds had taken to streets in La Guinera, shouting slogans like ‘down with communism,’ and ‘freedom for the people of Cuba,’ according to two residents and video footage seen by Reuters.” The report also states that Herrera said some of the protesters started throwing rocks at security forces, who eventually responded with gunfire.

Social-media activist Dina Stars was arrested in the middle of an online video interview with Spain TV host Marta Flich on Tuesday. As she was discussing the protests with Flich, Stars was informed that security services were outside her home, demanding that she come out. She told Flich, “Security is out there,” adding, “I have to go out.” As she stood to go out, she said, “I make the government responsible for whatever happens to me.” She returned a few moments later to end the interview, saying she was being taken to police headquarters.

As the Daily Mail reported, “Additional footage posted on Twitter appears to show Stars being escorted by two police officers into a vehicle outside her building.”

It is not known whether Stars has been released or is still being held.

Others being held included dissident Guillermo Farinas, former political prisoner Jose Daniel Ferrer, and artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcantara.

Ss CNN reported, “The Movimiento San Isidro, which advocates for greater artistic expression in Cuba, published a list of activists that it said were believed to have been detained by authorities.” According to Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares, journalist Camila Acosta is among those detained or arrested. Albares has called for her release.

Furthermore, the heavy-handed communist government has been interrupting the Internet and blocking social media as a reaction to the protests. President (and Communist Party leader) Miguel Díaz-Canel has blamed the protests on Cubans in America, saying they have used social media to spark the protests and fan the flames.

Diaz-Canel made his claims about social-media posts from Cubans living in America during a nationally televised appearance Monday in which his entire Cabinet was present. “We’ve seen how the campaign against Cuba was growing on social media in the past few weeks,” he said, adding, “That’s the way it’s done — Try to create in conformity, dissatisfaction by manipulating emotions and feelings.”

A Tale of Two Protests: Cuba’s Anti-communist Demonstrations and America’s Pro-communist Riots

The contrast between the protests in Cuba and those in America is worth noting. The protests in Cuba are by people sick and tired of being crushed under the boot of communism and are marked by mostly peaceful demonstrations; those in America are by crybaby snowflakes sick and tired of living in a land of freedom and opportunity and — while often described as “mostly peaceful” by the liberal media — are marked by violence, looting, and vandalism. Cubans cry, “Freedom!” and “Fatherland and Life!” and — while crowding the street outside the Communist Party headquarters — “Cuba isn’t yours!” Antifa and BLM cry, “No Justice, No Peace!” “F**k the Police!” and “Burn it down!” while demanding the very communism from which Cubans cry to be free.

All of that is to say that when this writer describes the protests in Cuba as being mostly peaceful, it is not the same thing as the liberal media describing a BLM/Antifa riot as “mostly peaceful” as the fires of revolution burn in the background. In fact, it is almost the exact opposite.

Of course, there have been reports of Cuban protesters throwing rocks at government security forces there. But, frankly, that is to be expected; Cuba’s communist regime has a history of silencing all opposition by rounding people up, imprisoning them, and even executing them, all without anything approaching due process or a fair trial. So, far from the situation in the United States where BLM claims to live in fear of police while dancing on police cars, Cubans who dare challenge their tyrannical government have a legitimate reason to fear. That is why many thousands of them have — in the more than 60 years since Castro’s revolution plunged the former island paradise into a despotic hole of misery — crossed the sea to Florida in makeshift rafts unfit for calm waters, much less the ocean. Those Cubans risked their lives to escape a fate they seem to deem worse than death.

Cuba was seized in a revolution. The communist government there was born in violence; it will likely have to die in violence. So, if protesters who have gathered peacefully to demand that the communists loosen the reins find themselves being arrested and dragged off as political prisoners, perhaps they can be forgiven for throwing a few rocks at security forces.

Here in America, we can only pray for the true liberation of Cuba and that God saves us from a similar fate.

Protests Erupt Across France After Macron Mandates Vaccinations, Proof of Compliance

Protests in Greece & France. Massive crowds demand Freedom & Liberté

Macron makes passports mandatory for “non-essential” services

EXCERPTS: 

Tens of thousands of French citizens take to the streets to fight against Macron’s unscientific totalitarian measures.

Demonstrations erupted across France after President Emmanual Macron announced new freedom-crushing measures in the name of combating coronavirus. The embattled French leader, who had previously said he would never mandate coronavirus “vaccines,” announced on July 12, 2021, new law mandating health care workers to be vaccinated. In addition, the left-wing leader warned that “depending on the evolution of the situation,” he would consider compulsory vaccinations for all of the French. Macron also extended health passes, which prove you have been vaccinated or received a recent negative Covid test, for citizens taking part in “places of leisure and culture,” along with restaurant and transportation services.

Watch a portion of Emmanual Macron’s announcement:

“If we do not act now, the number of cases will continue to rise and will inevitably lead to increased hospitalizations in August.” The President of the Republic presented new measures to supposedly curb the coronavirus pandemic, which he claims the circulation of the “very contagious Delta variant” is progressing in France.

Vaccination will be made compulsory for “nursing and non-nursing staff in hospitals, clinics, retirement homes, establishments for the disabled, for all professionals or volunteers who work in contact with the elderly or frail, including at home,” announced Macron.

Health professionals will have “until September 15” to be vaccinated. As of this date, they must have received two doses (or only one in the case where the person has already been infected with Coronavirus). Checks will be carried out,” and “sanctions will be taken,” added the head of state. “From September 15, if you are a caregiver and you are not vaccinated, you will no longer be able to work, and you will no longer be paid”, also warned the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran on French news station LCI Monday evening.

The health pass extended to “places of leisure and culture” from July 21

From July 21, the use of the health pass will be extended “to places of leisure and culture” that have more than 50 people, explained Macron. More specifically, for all people over 12 years old, “it will be necessary to have been vaccinated or to have a recent negative test to access a show, an amusement park, a concert or a festival,” detailed the head of the State. Cinemas and theaters will also be among the places health passes are mandated. Until now, the health pass was already used in certain concerts and cultural venues that had more than 1,000 people.

Extension of the health pass for restaurants and trains

“From the beginning of August, the health pass will be mandated in cafes, restaurants, as well as in hospitals, retirement homes, medico-social establishments and in long-distance transport” such as planes, as well as “trains and coaches for long journeys,” said Macron. “We are going to extend the health pass as much as possible to push as many of you as possible to get vaccinated,” he said. On French news station BFMTV, the government spokesperson, Gabriel Attal, specified that the pass would also be requested from customers who wish to sit on outdoor terraces.

According to the draft law, the operator of a place that fails to meet future health pass control obligations will be liable to a fine of up to 45,000 euros and one year in prison.

This extension will be incorporated into a bill submitted to Parliament, which will be decided upon “in an extraordinary session on July 21,” added Macron.

Protests Erupt Across France

After Macron’s totalitarian announcement on Monday, patriots organized demonstrations for today and this coming Saturday in France. A tentative schedule of the events was circulated on Facebook:

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets throughout cities in France this Wednesday to protest against the extension of the health pass and the compulsory vaccination mandate announced by Macron. In addition, citizens promise that hundreds of thousands of French will march against Macron’s dictatorship this weekend.

The crowds consisting of citizens and many health care workers with no obvious political affiliation took to the streets chanting “freedom, liberty,” “down with the dictatorship,” or “against the health pass.” Citizens marching for their freedom carried signs stating, “never in my body will return the liquid of dictatorship,” stand against “big pharma,” and “What are your limits in submission?”.

It comes as no surprise that the left-wing media and academics had previously labeled anyone concerned about coronavirus compulsory vaccinations as “conspiracy theorists.” But, as previously theorized at RAIR Foundation USA, it is practically guaranteed that when the left uses the phrase “conspiracy theory,” they try to hide something. And that something is often an actual conspiracy fact. As we have predicted for some time now, governments are mandating being injected with these experimental gene therapies.

Pastor Received 1,500 Death Threats Over COVID Resistance

Pastor Received 1,500 Death Threats Over COVID Resistance

BY BOB ADELMANN

Pastor Brian Gibson, a graduate of Oral Roberts University and founder of HIS Church in Owensboro, Kentucky, has a target on his back. In an interview on Epoch TV’s Crossroads program last Thursday he said he’s being targeted “just for being a vocal proponent of the First Amendment … just for being someone who supported President Trump, and someone who spoke out actively.”

He added:

I’ve received closed to 1,500 death threats. People broke into my home, kicked my gate down, hacked all of our accounts.

It’s amazing what they can do and how coordinated some of these intimidation rings can really be. I think I underestimated what that would really be until it happened to me.  

He was forced to move when thugs started intimidating his children, but they found his new location and continued the harassment.

Gibson gained national attention and notoriety back in January for telling the truth about how COVID restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns were greatly infringing upon precious rights guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution. He told NTD’s Focus Talk:

Whenever you watch the church being shut down, you watch the freedom of speech being taken away, you watch the censorship, you watch the ability to assemble together being threatened in the name of COVID.

He then added a phrase that rang all across the internet: “The Constitution has no COVID clause!”

He explained:

The first thing that’s listed there … is the freedom of religion. If it falls, and the First Amendment falls, the rest of the Constitution falls like dominos.

He noted the root cause of the collectivist cancer eating away at America’s foundations: “I think America needs to wake up on who has the mind of your children. Because, if you can shape the mind of a child, you can shape the mind of the future of our nation.” To restore the country’s culture, said Gibson, “We have to first start with the children.”

Gibson founded a group called Peaceably Gather where like-minded pastors could learn how to resist the COVID cancel culture, rapidly reaching more than 5,000 pastors with the message of resistance.

He sees the battle as “a fight for the heart and soul of America,” explaining on the Peaceably Gather website:

There is a constitutional crisis occurring right before our very eyes in America. Many of the governors of various states see the freedom of religion as something they can step over anytime they choose.

In this instance they’ve used public health and safety to silence the church. Opposing scientific opinions have been silenced, big tech is censoring conservative thought.

The last thing that can defeat this giant is the local church.

If we allow the forces that want to take away our first amendment rights to win in America we will be no different than China, Iran, or Vietnam.

Our children and our grandchildren will be raised in a nation where the government controls every aspect of their lives. They will live in a society where Caesar not Christ is God. America would become like any other communistic nation on the earth — totalitarian, ungodly, and impoverished.

The media made much of a selfie Gibson took of himself and another man who later attended the January 6 Capitol incident. The media, said Gibson, tried to frame him by saying that he was “one of the masterminds of the Capitol siege. I wasn’t in the Capitol, but I think what they do when they create these hit pieces, they’re trying to build a narrative against you: No. 1, with the public, and No. 2, they want a legal case against you. The mainstream media works to try to spin the narrative, and to spin public opinion before they’ll ever file charges.”

Gibson says the church in America has become soft and decadent and doesn’t want to give up its privileges by taking controversial stands:

In America we’ve become so comfortable. We don’t want to give up any of our comforts for real truth and real conviction anymore. And that’s why the church remained silent during the lockdowns [with notable exceptions]. So that’s why so many pastors didn’t speak up and push back.

Gibson said believers and pastors have to begin to stand against the encroaching tyranny:

Stand up for what you believe in. Don’t be afraid. Continue to love your enemies, but stand your ground. I think that’s what’s really needed in America.

Stop being afraid of what somebody might do to you. The high cost of living is potentially dying. I don’t want to die. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have martyr’s complex. I want to live a long life, be an old man, see all of my kids’ kids.

But if somebody has such a grip of fear around you that you can’t live or be who you are, what good is living?

Critical Race Theory’s War on History It’s not teaching history, it’s destroying it.

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/07/critical-race-theorys-war-history-daniel-greenfield/;

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

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

From the Biden administration to the teachers’ unions to the media, the talking points in support of critical race theory all come down to some defense of “teaching history”. 

Or as Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki put it, “children should learn not just the good, but also the challenging in our history."

Children, of course, learn little else except the "challenging" in our history.

Howard Zinn would find little to complain about in a modern history curriculum which begins with accusing Americans of committing genocide against Indian tribes and then shifts over to slavery, segregation, Japanese detention camps in California, the civil rights movement, and gay rights.

Liberals were already teaching American history as a series of inadequacies and oppressions. 

Critical race theory is only concerned with history to the extent that it fits its attack on the present. It rejects the old liberal framework of America as a series of diminishing oppressions. Its revelatory “red pill” idea is that America is perpetually oppressive because segregation and slavery never ended. They just moved into the criminal justice system. The police are the new slave catchers. White privilege is the new plantation. Dating America back to 1619 isn’t just an attack on its founding, but on our present, because they insist that we are in 1619 right now.

Liberals attacked America’s founding to defend a series of breaks with the past. Critical race theorists attack the past to attack the present because they believe there’s no difference.

Psaki briefly conceded that the purpose of critical race theory in education is an attack on the present. Or as the spokeswoman spun it, "the president believes that in our history, there are many dark moments. And there is not just slavery and racism in our history, there is systemic racism that is still impacting society today.” America wasn’t just racist: it is still racist now.

Critical race theory isn’t teaching history. What it’s teaching is that there is no history.

Liberals believed that progress could be made from the past, but the new wave of leftists argue that progress is impossible until everything about the past is destroyed. Year Zero.

America has not changed and cannot change until it is utterly and entirely destroyed.

Much like the “Roman Empire Never Fell” strain of history, critical race theory, and its assorted black nationalist influenced constructs insist that “Slavery Never Ended”. 

An ideology that denies the existence of historical change can’t teach any kind of history.

An obvious sign that you’re consuming junk ideological history is an insistence on seeing an endless series of exact parallels in every era that prove nothing really changes over time.

A revisionist history that denies the existence of historical change is just a conspiracy theory.

And critical race theory, like all Marxism, is a conspiracy theory which uses bad history to prove the even worse point that nothing will ever change until its acolytes are running everything.

Critical race theory is anti-American, but it’s also illiberal and illiterate. Not to mention racist. 

The Democrat establishment is frantically trying to talk about critical race theory in terms of “teaching history”, but the most pernicious elements of critical race theory aren’t its revisionist history, but its insistence that the country and that white people are innately racist.

Few parents are coming to meetings to protest a distorted version of American history. While history influenced by critical race theory is even more hateful than the ordinary kind, most schools are already teaching our history as a series of negatives with few positives.

What they are protesting is the demonization of their children in the present.

The most explosive part of critical race theory’s influence on the curriculum is the obsessive hatred of ‘whiteness’ which leads to dividing up students by race and telling them that minorities are victims and white students are evil because systemic racism is embedded in our culture, our society, and our institutions, and resides intangibly in the deepest corners of our psyches. 

Opposition to critical race theory has mobilized a new group of activists, many of them liberal and not particularly patriotic, who have little investment in American history, but who viscerally reject the racial demonization that critical race theory has brought into their school systems.

Democrats are panicking over the blowback because many of these parents are not conservative Christians or flag-wavers, some are suburban soccer moms who are mostly on board with leftist politics, but who draw the line at having their kids accused of racism.

There is a huge difference between teaching kids about racism and teaching them to be racist.

Activist education, as opposed to actual education, isn’t transmitting knowledge. History, like math and science, is purely transactional in activist education whose function is mobilization. 

The transformation of educators into organizers turned public schools and colleges into hubs for manufacturing the leftist activists of tomorrow while destroying educational standards. It is no coincidence that test scores, especially in math and science, began their decline at the same time that schools became explicitly political institutions and teachers turned into organizers.

When teaching is just a means of turning out the kids for a political rally, it fails at the basic educational task of conveying knowledge and skills. Indoctrinating children under the guise of teaching critical thinking skills has led to students who leap to deconstruct everything along approved lines without understanding the nature of the things they’re deconstructing. 

That’s how you end up with activists toppling statues of Lincoln and Grant and vandalizing memorials to Civil War soldiers, to protest against racism.

Racism has come to mean the past. And the past, critical race theory, insists is also the present.

Teaching history is a poor way to describe a racist ideology which claims that history never changes and that the only way to escape it is to wage a forever war on the present. 

The Biden administration isn’t endorsing critical race theory in schools because it believes in teaching history, but because it’s doubling down on using schools for political organizing. From the union dues that fund the Democrat political machine to the educational indoctrination meant to create new Democrat voters, public education is a Democrat funding and recruiting system.

The pandemic lockdowns, in which public school teachers could attend Black Lives Matter riots, but couldn’t risk their precious selves by teaching students, showed whom the system serves.

The public school system does not serve their country, it does not serve America, children or their parents. Instead, it’s a machine for grinding up all three for the political benefit of one party.

That party, like its leftist ideology, doesn't want to teach American history. It seeks to end it.

Convicted terrorists, some linked to ISIS and al-Qaeda, lead religious services at a third of US federal prisons

Adera Kaye on Terrorists using Prisons as Recruiting Grounds

This is madness, fueled by the persistent fantasy that Islam is a religion of peace. U.S. prisons, like prisons in Britain, are allowing for jihad recruitment, and Americans will be paying the price.

“Islamic terrorists lead religious services in a quarter of federal prisons: inspector general report,” by Greg Piper, Just the News, July 8, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Inmates convicted on terrorism-related charges or with “known connections to terrorist organizations,” including the Islamic State, al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab, were allowed to lead religious services at a third of the federal prisons audited by a federal watchdog, raising deep security concerns.

A recent audit by the Justice Department’s inspector general of the Chaplaincy Services Program in the Federal Bureau of Prisons found four out of 12 facilities in which terrorist inmates were eligible to lead religious services.

At three of the facilities, the prisoners were affiliated with Islamic terrorist groups, with at least two leading services “on a regular basis” or a “frequent basis.” One of them was chosen to lead services by other inmate coreligionists “due to his extensive faith knowledge and Arabic fluency.”

This wasn’t the first time the IG found terrorist inmates leading services, the report states, citing a March 2020 audit.

The July report blamed the absence of a “fully-staffed and diverse chaplaincy” for such lapses: The 236 chaplains are about 30 percent below BOP targets. This prompted many institutions to “turn to alternatives such as inmate-led services and heavy reliance on contract faith providers and minimally vetted volunteer faith providers to fill the gaps in the chaplaincy staff. These staffing shortages and alternatives present risks.”

BOP policies don’t restrict “certain inmates from leading services and appear to be inconsistent regarding the level of required monitoring,” the report states. It found only one chaplain who “reportedly took preemptive action to prevent a known terrorist from leading religious services.”

Chaplains told IG staff they let prisoners choose their own faith leaders “to avoid complaints, lawsuits, or the rejection of leaders that would otherwise be selected by BOP staff.”…

Leaked ATF Guidance: Private Gunmakers Are Criminals, Terrorists & Extremists

Leaked ATF Report: Private Gunmakers Are Criminals, Terrorists & Extremists

Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- If there is any federal agency that can be counted on to create a problem just to justify their own existence it is certainly the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

When it comes to overhyping the next “threat” to the homeland – regardless of the facts – the ATF seldom disappoints.

The embattled agency’s latest piece of creative fiction is a warning about “privately made firearms” or PMFs, and it should serve as a warning to gun owners, homebuilders, and everyone else who values their civil rights.

An ATF document titled “First Responder Awareness of Privately Made Firearms May Prevent Illicit Activities” was published last week by the Joint Counterterrorism Assessment Team (JCAT).

“JCAT is a collaboration by the NCTC, DHS, and FBI to improve information sharing among federal, state, local, tribal, territorial governments and private sector partners, in the interest of enhancing public safety,” the document states. “This product is NOT in response to a specific threat against the United States. It provides a general awareness of, considerations for, and additional resources related to terrorist tactics, techniques, and procedures, whether domestic or overseas.”

To be clear, the ATF and JCAT consider homebuilt firearms “terrorist tactics, techniques and procedures,” even though Americans have been making guns legally in their homes since before there even was a United States of America.

The document was never supposed to be leaked to the media or the public and is exempt from discovery through the federal Freedom of Information Act, but some freedom-loving soul published it online yesterday despite its ominous warning:

“WARNING: This document is UNCLASSIFIED//FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY. Do not release to the public, the media, or other personnel who do not have a valid need to know without prior approval from NCTC, DHS, or the FBI. This document may contain US Person information deemed necessary for the intended recipient to understand, assess, or act on the information provided. Additionally, this document may contain information exempt from public release under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552).”

“Criminals and violent extremists continue to seek ways to acquire firearms through the production of privately made firearms (PMFs),” ATF’s document warns. “PMF awareness and identification can aid

PMF recovery, prevention of illicit activities including terrorism, and overall first responder and public safety.”

Evidently, even the ATF was worried that their door-kickers might go too far, again – they can’t afford another Waco or Ruby Ridge – so they included a subtle warning before things get out of hand.

“NOTE: Many of the activities described herein may involve Constitutionally protected activities and may be insignificant on their own. Action should not be taken solely based on the exercise of Constitutionally protected rights.” Yep, those pesky Constitutional rights tend to get in the way.

Much of the advice the ATF passes on to First Responders would be laughable, were it not for the fact that Americans have a right to make firearms in their own homes. Apparently, that doesn’t matter. If you’re found with 3D printers, printing mediums such as plastic, ceramic, or metal spools, or place what the agency considers to be too large of an order online, you’re going to be suspected of terrorism or violent extremism even though your actions are perfectly legal.

I have written about the need to abolish the ATF before because no one seems capable of reining in the rogue agency or forcing them to accept the fact Americans actually do have constitutional rights.

This is more important now than ever before, because Biden’s nominee to head the ATF, David Chipman, is a paid anti-gun activist who would definitely take the agency in the opposite direction.

If Chipman is confirmed by the Senate, this leaked ATF report is just a warning of more serious civil rights violations yet to come.

Boston: Pro-Palestinian Thugs Spit at and Curse Pro-Israel Activist

YouTube screenshot of Pro-Palestinian mob attacking Dexter Van Zile:

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2021/06/27/boston-pro-palestinian-thugs-spit-at-and-curse-pro-israel-activist-n1457621;

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

On Thursday, a group of pro-Palestinian activists surrounded Dexter Van Zile of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) at a Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) rally at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. The pro-jihad protesters tried to intimidate Van Zile physically, poking their fingers in his face, shouting at him, shoving him, spitting at him, and calling him a “bitch,” “Nazi,” and “f**king pig.” Then they no doubt went away believing themselves to be on the side of righteousness. It was a small incident that reveals many of the big problems facing America today, thanks to the American Left.

Just before Van Zile was surrounded and menaced, a speaker at the pro-Palestinian rally told the crowd: “Uh, Dexter Van Zile over here is in the crowd, he’s a rabid Zionist with this group called CAMERA.” After the crowd booed and hooted, the speaker went on to explain how “Zionist racist fascists… under the guise of journalism, write only to smear and muckrake on our righteous movement.” He called upon the crowd to start chanting “Zionists, go home,” which they dutifully did, turning toward Van Zile to do so. Van Zile was surrounded, abused, and reviled shortly thereafter, even as one of the pro-jihad activists repeatedly tried to convince his companions not to do so, saying over and over again: “They will use this against us. They will use this against us. They will use this against us.”

RecommendedWATCH: Philly BLM Rioters Shout ‘Get the F**k Out’ to Jews, Call Them ‘Synagogue of Satan’

Well, yes. And here we are. Because in the first place, no one in the crowd was saying that Van Zile should be left alone for any reason other than that surrounding him, yelling at him, and spitting on him would make the demonstrators look bad. No one reminded them of the American tradition of free discourse and Voltaire’s old adage, now completely forgotten, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The American Left has now replaced that idea, which is at the foundation of any free society, with “If I disapprove of what you say, I will revile you, slander you, and physically menace until you are too afraid to stand up against me.”

Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and pro-Palestinian activists generally take that principle for granted and are so certain of their own righteousness that they apparently believe that it gives them a free pass to be as vicious and violent toward those whom they hate as they wish because it’s all for their sacred cause. This was how Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and the rest justified murdering millions of their own people: on their blood-soaked graves would be built the Marxist utopia of a classless society in which the workers controlled the means of production, and that justified everything.

The protesters who behaved so thuggishly toward Van Zile, and who appeared to be about half his age, likewise are convinced, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, that they are on the side of the oppressed victims. Meanwhile, among those being oppressed by slight, balding Zionists in Boston, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official Palestinian Authority daily, just published an article praising a jihad terrorist for naming his son Eichmann, after Adolf Eichmann, one of the chief architects of the Nazi genocide of the Jews.

And Marwan Abu Ras, who according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is a “Hamas MP and member of Board of Trustees of the International Union of Muslim Scholars,” said in early June: “Massacring this enemy is a divine order. [The Quran says:] ‘So strike them upon the neck and strike from them every fingertip.’ Striking the necks of this enemy is a duty according to the shari’a. Anyone who can massacre this enemy should not neglect this duty, because this enemy is the enemy of the Islamic nation.”

RecommendedThis CNN Contributor Hates Israel So Much, He Praises Hitler For Killing Jews. Yes, Really.

The day after Marwan Abu Ras said that, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas ordered the family of a jihad terrorist who had murdered two Israelis be given over $40,000, as well as an upgrade to their living quarters. In issuing this order, Abbas was thumbing his nose at the Taylor Force Act, which prohibits the U.S. government from giving aid to entities that fund or reward terrorism. Abbas knows that Old Joe Biden’s handlers don’t care about that law, and are happy to break it.

So we have people who revere Hitler, who think killing their enemies is commanded by their god, and who reward terrorists with cash bonuses and new housing. These are the oppressed victims Dexter Van Zile was threatening by his presence in Boston. These are the ones who suffer so much that their advocates think screaming in the face of a lone middle-aged man is a meritorious act. And if leftists can accept this, just imagine what is coming.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

As the Black Lives Matter riots torched the country, Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, insisted that the violent assaults threatening the nation’s capitol were merely protests, and berated Trump’s adviser Stephen Miller who warned, “These cities are burning”.

After the White House came under attack and a BLM mob set fire to the gatehouse, Trump aides, at the request of the president, drafted a document invoking the Insurrection Act that would have ended the nationwide reign of Democrat terror by putting troops on the street.

Milley vocally rejected the idea, claiming that the violent riots were just a protest, and it wasn’t appropriate for the military to be involved in political issues. Of course, Eisenhower had sent the troops into Little Rock to integrate the schools, Kennedy had sent them to Mississippi to do the same, and George H.W. Bush had sent them to Los Angeles to put down the Rodney King riots.

After accompanying President Trump to Lafayette Square, where Black Lives Matter rioters had tried to set the ‘Church of the Presidents’ on fire, Milley quickly withered under media pressure.

"I should not have been there," Milley recited in an apology video and defended the BLM-Antifa insurrections as responses to the "centuries of injustice toward African Americans."

After scores of cities had been torched, statues pulled down, and hundreds of police officers wounded at the hands of racist Marxist hate groups, Milley argued that "we should all be proud that the vast majority of protests have been peaceful."

American POWs in Vietnam had held out under torture rather than record Marxist confession videos like the one that Milley made for the media to protect his career.

But Milley didn’t just stand down in the face of the BLM race riots, he joined the move to divide and weaken the military by bringing the Black Lives Matter curriculum of anti-white and anti-American hate into its ranks. Dividing American soldiers by race has a crippling effect on unit cohesion and general morale, it weakens our national security in the face of the threats from Communist China and our other aggressive enemies, Russia and Iran..

As the summer riots engulfed over 200 American cities, Milley joined the push for diversity and inclusion. He demanded that Fort Bragg and Fort Hood, named after Confederate generals, have their names changed. Milley had never brought this up when he was the commander of Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg and a Fort Hood commanding general, but it wasn’t politically expedient then. And Milley’s career ranks first while his country comes last.

By the fall, Milley was talking about fighting “unconscious” bias in the military – the phantom enemy invented by Critical Race Theorists and the anti-American left to attack white people generally and the American heritage in particular.

Milley’s routine paid off and while there had been talk among Biden’s people about removing him, he stayed on instead and is now telling Biden and the Democrats what they want to hear.

At a House Armed Services Committee hearing, Rep. Houlahan, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, called on Milley to defend the imposition of critical race theory on the military

Milley was all too ready and launched into a prepared speech in which he lied that critical race theory was studying "laws in the United States, antebellum laws prior to the Civil War that led to a power differential with African-Americans that were three-quarters of a human being when this country was formed."

This was mind-boggling ignorance on the part of a U.S. general, whom the New York Times had previously praised as an “an avid student of history”, and whom the Associated Press had promoted as a “Princeton-educated history buff”, since the three-fifths compromise had nothing to do with race and everything to do with curtailing the power of the slavocracy.

But in the current corrupt media atmosphere, racist ignorance coming from the left is treated as academic wisdom, and here Milley demonstrated that his knowledge of the most basic elements of American history consisted of ignorant smears from the New York Times’ 1619 Project.

Milley, the “avid student of history”, was as much a hoax as the rest of his manufactured image.

The great “history buff” either didn’t know anything about American history, or he was willing to smear America and defame her past in order to score points with his new leftist bosses.

Once again Milley was undermining America’s security to appease his left-wing overseers.

“I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist,” Milley rambled in his pathetic defense of critical race theory.

American officers studied Marx and Lenin to defeat Communism, not to adopt it. But Milley is overseeing a military that is adopting Marxism on his orders through critical race theory.

Is Milley committed to defeating critical race theory or to embracing it? His comments at the hearing left no doubt as to which side he had chosen in the battle against America.

Milley declared, “I want to understand white rage and I’m white, and I want to understand it”.

The only people who talk that way are academics and white-hating Black Lives Matter Marxists.

President Trump picked Milley because he appeared to be a salt-of-the-earth military man who seemed to share his view of the world. In fact, he was a time-serving opportunist, more committed to advancing his career than defending his country.

Quite a few people have been fooled by Milley who looks like a Hollywood director's idea of a general but is actually, a rarity, the second Army boss to have come through the Ivy League.

Milley started out at Belmont Hill School, a posh private school with elite alumni, which these days promotes Black Lives Matter and the low-grade racism of Ibram X. Kendi. He went on to be a Princeton political science 'longhair', and picked up a master’s degree in international relations from Columbia. Milley’s militant defense of woke racism in the form of critical race theory was unsurprising because despite his appearance he has the perfect background for it.

The future general had intended to join the military for only four years to “to give meaning to Princeton in the nation’s service”. And Princeton’s left-wing ideology still comes out ahead of the military oath to defend the Constitution and the country it created.

Obama, determined to politicize the military and the intelligence services, picked the Ivy League officer over the heads of more qualified and patriotic senior officers.

As an article noted at the time, "Milley’s rise to top Army officer came quickly. He is commander of U.S. Forces Command, a post he’s held only since last August. Previously, for a little more than one year he was the deputy commander of the Afghanistan war.”

Revealingly, Ash Carter, Obama's Secretary of Defense, touted Milley as a "statesman" with "the intellect and vision to lead change throughout the Army". That’s what he’s still doing.

Milley wasn’t there to win wars, but to be a “statesman” and to transform the Army.

Army Ivy League officers love to talk about change for its own sake and Milley rose through the ranks by borrowing Silicon Valley’s rhetoric of disrupting everything. Especially the military.

Ground war is “on the cusp of fundamental change”, he declared in 2016. Wars of the future were coming. “We must be open-minded to that change. We may not have divisions or corps, tanks or Bradleys. We don’t know.” Five years later, the Taliban are overrunning Afghanistan using the same raiding tactics that local fighters had been employing for thousands of years.

Meanwhile, Milley’s big achievement is the Army Futures Command in Austin whose people look and sound like the local dot com startup culture in the lefty hipster city.

The defeat in Afghanistan and the ‘wokening’ of the military have a common origin in Ivy League officers like Milley whose enthusiasm for “fundamental change” blinded them to the complete failure of Obama’s appeasement policies and the infiltration of the armed forces by the anti-American Left.

America and its soldiers have been failed and betrayed on the battlefield by academic officers whose sympathies were with the leftist insurgents taking over the country at home, and who saw the war in Afghanistan as a laboratory for demonstrating Obama’s exciting new ideas.

Milley is not the worst of them. He's the successor to even more craven generals like Stanley McChrystal, but he occupies his position at a crucial time when the survival of the United States military is at stake. And the enemy isn’t in Afghanistan: it’s inside America.

Milley has not only failed to fight this enemy, he has surrendered and joined their Marxist cause.

After losing Afghanistan, Milley is overseeing the defeat of America.

"The conditions are set for winning this war," Milley had asserted back when he was heading up NATO’s ISAF Joint Command under Obama.

“I don't think anyone has died in vain, per se,” he recently replied when he was asked if American soldiers in Afghanistan had died in vain.

The mothers of all the men who had died in Afghanistan were no doubt reassured, per se.

Milley has spent his career telling politicians what they want to hear because it was good for his career. His endorsement of the divisive racism of critical race theory shows that there are no limits to what he will support as long as it’s good for his career. But this time the cost may not just be thousands of dead Americans abroad, but a defenseless nation at home.

Why Does Lloyd Austin Refuse to Define ‘Extremism’?

BY TYLER O'NEIL

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

Even though the Department of Defense (DOD) carried out a military-wide “stand-down” training on “extremism” early into Joe Biden’s tenure, the DOD still has not promulgated an official definition of extremism. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin refused to give a definition at a congressional hearing this week, and on Thursday, the DOD confirmed to PJ Media that it has not adopted a definition. However, a working definition that the Army Recruiting Command apparently uses to screen applicants should raise alarm bells for conservatives.

“I’m very concerned about the recent order that you have conducted regarded looking at so-called ‘extremism,’ and I have sent to you two letters, Mr. Secretary, asking for the definition of what the Department of Defense views as ‘extremism,’ and have not heard back from you yet,” Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) told Austin at a hearing on Wednesday. “Could you just share with me, does the Department of Defense have a definition of extremism?”

Austin did not answer Hartzler’s question. He assured her, “I believe that 99.9 percent of our troops are focused on the right things, embracing the right values, each and every day. Small numbers of people, in this area, can have an outsized impact on our organization.”

“We are focused on extremist behavior, not what people think or political ideas or religious ideas, but extremist behavior,” Austin insisted.

“So, do you have a definition of what extremism is and what that behavior is?” Hartzler asked.

“Again, we’re focused on behavior,” Austin repeated, dodging the question.

“Well, you had a stand-down and you had a pause over the entire military for an entire day to do training to talk about this, and you don’t have a definition yet of what the purpose was and what extremism is?”

“The purpose was to have a discussion with our troops and our leaders on the issue of extremism, and that was very productive,” Austin said.

Hartzler brought up a new DOD screening procedure, asking, “What, specifically, would you be screening for?”

“Our screening is focused on screening those applicants that are coming into the military. We want to make sure that we’re bringing in the right type of people, quality of people,” Austin replied.

“So, if someone says that they’re for President Trump, would that be viewed as extremism?” Hartzler pressed.

“As I said earlier, this is not about politics. I want our troops to participate in our political system,” Austin replied. “That’s what they’re fighting to defend. But I will also say that we will continue to be a diverse and inclusive organization.”

RecommendedWhistleblowers Explain How Biden’s Woke ‘Extremism’ Training Is Tearing the Military Apart

PJ Media reached out to the DOD on Thursday, and a spokesperson confirmed that the Department had not put out any guidance defining extremism. However, various training materials used for the military-wide “stand down” to combat “extremism” follow the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) playbook for demonizing conservatives through the biased application of terms like “discrimination.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) shared the reports of whistleblowers who said the DOD pushed “anti-racist” and Marxist critical race theory (CRT) materials in trainings to combat “extremism.” One whistleblower said his or her unit was forced to read White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. One Army officer said his general officer told him “that the entire U.S. Army is racist.” Earlier this week, Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, defended teaching CRT in the military and repeated CRT propaganda against the Constitution.

This context suggests that the DOD may hesitate to define “extremism” because its likely definition will involve demonizing conservative views. Indeed, on Wednesday morning, a communique sent to Army Recruiting Command — and first reported by PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox — presented a slanted definition of “extremism.” The DOD has not adopted this definition, but it seems the Army is using this definition to screen applicants.

The document laid out an illogical definition of extremism: “Extremism is defined as an individual that advocates for any of the following:

  1. Hatred or intolerance on the basis of race, sex (including gender identity), sexual orientation, or ethnicity.
  2. Creating or engaging in discrimination based on race, color, sex (including gender identity), national origin, religion, or sexual orientation.
  3. Use of force or violence or unlawful means to deprive individuals of their rights to achieve political/religious/discriminatory goals.
  4. Support for terrorist or criminal organizations or objectives.
  5. Overthrow of the U.S. Government by force, violence, or sedition.
  6. Subversion (i.e., violations of law, disobedience to lawful orders or regulations).

It stands to reason that the U.S. military would define extremism to include advocacy for the “overthrow of the U.S. government by force, violence, or sedition,” and that aspect of the definition seems unassailable. Subversion may also count as extremism, so long as the definition does not exclude certain forms of civil disobedience that should fall under the First Amendment’s speech protections. Support for terrorist or criminal organizations also seems a reasonable aspect of an extremism definition.

RecommendedEXCLUSIVE: Army Finally Defines ‘Extremism’ When It Comes to Screening Out ‘Hate Group’ Members

The use of force or violent means to deprive people of their rights may also reasonably fit a definition of extremism. While Stacey Lennox was right to warn about the Left applying rights language to abortion and other issues, opposition to abortion should involve reasoned debate, not violence.

However, the first two aspects of this Army definition should raise red flags for conservatives.

Conservatives do not support “hatred or intolerance on the basis of race, sex (including gender identity), sexual orientation, or ethnicity,” but the Left often twists the definitions of “hate” on these hot-button issues. For example, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) routinely brands mainstream conservative and Christian organizations “hate groups” due to their opposition to the Left’s narrative and activism on LGBT issues, Islam, and immigration.

In the wake of a scandal involving claims of racial discrimination and sexual harassment that saw the SPLC fire its co-founder and lose its president and legal director, a former SPLC employee outed the “hate-group list” as a “masterstroke of [the founder]’s marketing talents.” This seemed to confirm claims that the hate group list is a cynical fundraising scheme, rather than a legitimate report.

The “hate group” accusation also gives the SPLC a way to destroy its political enemies. Former SPLC spokesman Mark Potok also revealed an animus against the organizations on the list. He said the SPLC’s “aim in life” is to “destroy these groups.” In 2012, a deranged man targeted the Christian non-profit organization the Family Research Council (FRC), aiming to kill everyone in the building and smear a Chick-fil-A sandwich into his victims’ faces. He told the FBI he targeted FRC due to the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation. The SPLC has not dropped that accusation.

Democrats have endorsed the SPLC’s “hate group” accusations, while some Big Tech companies and some corporate boards have also adopted this twisted weaponization of the “hate” label.

In a similar vein, Biden’s definition of civil rights law would implicate many social conservatives in “discrimination” — especially when it comes to “gender identity.”

According to the Biden administration, the “discrimination” that fits the second part of the Army recruiting definition of “extremism” would apply to one person who refers to biological males who identify as female with male pronouns, who advocates for excluding biological males from women’s sports, or who warns against the abuses of subjecting gender-confused children to chemical castration, among other things.

Biden has even fought to resurrect an Obama-era HHS rule that would force Roman Catholic doctors to perform transgender surgery, in violation of both Catholic teaching on sexuality and the Hippocratic oath. If refusing to perform transgender surgery counts as “discrimination,” that might make every Catholic medic in the military an “extremist.”

RecommendedHead of the Joint Chiefs Repeats CRT Propaganda Trashing the Constitution

Without a definition of “extremism,” the DOD cannot allay conservatives’ fears about the whistleblower reports and about the Biden administration’s radical twisting of civil rights law. While the DOD claims to be formulating an official definition, Austin’s decision to stonewall Hartzler instead of giving her even a working definition seems mighty suspicious. The Army Recruiting Command’s slanted definition only underscores conservatives’ worries.

Rashida Tlaib’s Finance Director Bullies, Harasses U.S. and Florida Legislators Over ‘Palestine’

State Rep. Carlos Smith accuses Rasha Mubarak and group of homophobia.

Joe Kaufman is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and the Chairman of the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative. He was the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Republican Nominee for U.S. House of Representatives (Florida-CD23).

Rasha Mubarak, an anti-Israel activist and Finance Director for US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, is destroying relationships she has spent years building in the Democratic Party. She is leading an angry group of Israel bashers on a journey to intimidate and ridicule Progressive members of the US and Florida Legislatures, who do not cater to her and her group’s full list of demands. One of these legislators, Carlos Smith, following a testy and vulgar encounter with Mubarak and co., accused the group of homophobia. It is common for Islamists and their allies to target Jews and gays, and it is like Mubarak to add more Democrats to her list of enemies.

Rasha Mubarak hates Israel, so much so that she says Israel, a sovereign nation, has no right to self-defense. She also supports Palestinian terrorists. At the end of the 2014 Israel-Gaza Conflict, she cheered Hamas. This past March, she posted a video on her social media honoring former PFLP spokesman Ghassan Khanafani. In June and July 2020, Mubarak posted memorials for car-ramming terrorist Ahmed Erekat, who was shot and killed after attempting to run over a female Israeli border officer. And this past November, Mubarak promoted then-jailed Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader Maher al-Akhras with a message to free all like him.

This month, once again, Mubarak sought to whitewash terror. On June 12th, when Israeli border guards shot dead a Palestinian woman approaching them with a knife at a West Bank checkpoint after she ignored orders to stop, Mubarak absurdly and baselessly described the event as “Israel’s deliberate attempts at Palestinian erasure.” Also, this month, Mubarak posted a statement written by Hamas fan Samer Owaida, ridiculously claiming that “Not a single Palestinian resistance org has ever committed a war crime.” This, when suicide bombings and firing rockets indiscriminately into civilian neighborhoods are universally considered war crimes.

It is this same irrational fanaticism that has driven Mubarak, under the banner ‘Florida Palestine Network,’ to organize others in an effort to terrorize Florida lawmakers from the US and Florida Legislatures with bullying tactics and a list of untenable demands. These demands include 1. condemning Israel for “state-sanctioned violence” against Palestinians and “forced expulsions” from and “forced demolitions” of Palestinian homes, 2. ending US military aid to Israel, and 3. denouncing Florida bill H.B. 741, which protects Jews from anti-Semitism.

H.B. 741, which was voted for unanimously in the Florida House and Senate, impacts Mubarak and her group of radicals personally, as it acts in part against those (anti-Semites) who single out Israel for attack on college campuses. The bill was signed into law by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the signing ceremony of which took place in Jerusalem.

At least two of the Florida legislators who have been targeted by Mubarak, Representatives Carlos Guillermo Smith and Anna Eskamani, in the past, have been seen as friends and allies of Mubarak. They have participated in events with Mubarak and embraced Mubarak. Now, these two have been vilified by Mubarak and her group with a vengeance.

On June 3rd, the group showed up on Representative Smith’s office doorstep. He came outside and, for over 40 minutes, listened to them, as they piled abuse on him. They accused him of “actively diminishing Palestinian rights” and being “complicit” with “Islamophobic rhetoric.” One member kept bringing up the term, “Jewish supremacy.” Another told him, “You just want to be coddled and told you’re doing fine. Oh, you did okay, because one time you said that you were pro-Palestine. That doesn’t matter now… People are f**king dying, so if we have to come here and yell at you, then that’s what we have to do.” She called his words to them, “bulls**t.”

When Representative Smith left, Mubarak began a chant, “Carlos Smith, you can’t hide.” The group mockingly laughed at him, as he quickly came out to tell the group he was not hiding. Later, Mubarak can be seen on video shouting at Smith, “Get out of my face!” She accused Smith of repeatedly “slamming the door on my face” and “almost severing my fingers off.” According to Smith, who is openly gay, someone from the group was “shouting into the megaphone about my husband” and saying his name. He stated, the “group began laughing after someone called him my ‘boyfriend.’” He accused the group of practicing homophobia.

The disrespect shown to Representative Smith was also given to Representative Eskamani. During the Smith episode, Mubarak’s younger cousin, Syria Lutfi, wore a placard around her neck of a long note Eskamani had sent her on social media. Lutfi, who at five years old, in January 2006, allegedly witnessed her father Mohammed attempt to stab her mother with a steak knife, described Eskamani’s tweets to her as “belittling,” “ignorant,” and meant to “serve as a tactic distraction to deflect from Palestinian voices.” In the note to Lutfi, Eskamani accused Mubarak of not liking her “on a personal level” and claimed the group was “yelling” at her.

It appears that Mubarak’s ‘Florida Palestine Network’ project has been a complete failure, as not one of the Representatives and Senators the group has targeted have given in to the group’s demands. On top of this, Mubarak and her group have looked like bullies, stalkers, and, at times, lunatics, in the process. Furthermore, relationships with key Democratic lawmakers, who Mubarak had spent years developing alliances with, have now been severely compromised, and quite possibly these individuals will never be able to work with her again.

On June 25th, Rasha Mubarak is scheduled to speak along with US Congressman Andre Carson, at a lunch session, during the Indiana Young Democrats (IYD) convention. The Indiana Democratic Party (IDP) – indeed, the National Democratic Committee (NDC) – should take note of how Mubarak is working to tear down Democratic leaders and sow divisiveness within the Democratic Party and move to cancel this event. Bigotry against Jews and homosexuals should never be tolerated by any political party, let alone the party which claims to be the paragon of tolerance and inclusivity.

Did Amazon’s Critical Race Theory Push Lead to a Racist Assault on a Customer?

When a company pushes racism, is it responsible when its employees assault white people?

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

Ever since Amazon created its own delivery service, the blue vests of its drivers and the dark blue trucks with the monopolistic giant’s arrow have become as ubiquitous as UPS brown or FedEx purple and orange on every street and highway in America. And with good reason.

Amazon’s package volume is expected to surpass UPS and FedEx as a host of men and women in blue rush to deliver orders from Chinese third-party sellers and drop shippers.

But on the first Friday of June, a delivery in California instead ended in a violent assault.

Usually, Amazon rips off customers, companies, and entire countries, but it doesn’t beat them. This time there was an exception as Itzel Ramirez, an Amazon driver in her twenties, was caught on video violently assaulting a 67-year-old woman who had asked about her package.

While Ramirez claimed self-defense, the video shows her assaulting the elderly woman from behind, punching her in the back of the head, and seemingly using a keyring in the assault. The beating caused the victim to collide with the door and reportedly left her with a broken nose.

It was not the first assault by an Amazon driver on an elderly person caught on video. An Amazon driver had previously assaulted a 73-year-old man in Miami Beach. But this time the Amazon delivery person had used a politically correct slur thereby turning it into a hate crime.

Ramirez had accused her victim of “white privilege”.

Despite that slur, she has not been charged with a hate crime. In a state where critical race theory is being forced into schools and on employees of major corporations, it’s not likely that a violent racist echoing an official dogma that demonizes white people would be held accountable.

Amazon claimed that the violent assault on one of its customers “does not reflect the high standards we have for drivers" and assured everyone that "this individual is no longer delivering Amazon packages.” But it may be worth examining what Amazon’s standards really are.

Like every Silicon Valley company, Amazon has gone all-in on critical race theory.

The Amazon assault happened the same year that Jeff Bezos, the company's founder and CEO, announced that he was stepping down. Bezos was ruthless, cruel, and amoral, but beyond using the Washington Post to become a D.C. power broker had less interest in conventional corporate virtue signaling.

Andy Jassy, his right-hand man who will replace him as CEO after being in charge of Amazon's cloud platform, is a more traditional Big Tech wokester.

Jassy falsely accused police departments of "murdering black people", supported illegal aliens, and made the decision to shut down Parler. His wife is a Bernie Sanders donor.

The incoming Big Tech CEO has vowed to focus the company on “diversity and more inclusion.” If its employees weren't feeling abused enough by having to pee into cups, Amazon mandated that all employees complete a 90-minute "Strengthening Our Culture of Inclusion" program.

Amazon had already banned non-inclusive language like "blacklists" (which didn't stop it from blacklisting all sorts of people), but now it was going further with identity politics affinity groups and its Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) events featuring extremists and racists.

CORE events packed thousands of Amazon employees into massive meetings to be accused of racism by a series of racist and extreme leftist speakers.

The Big Tech monopoly’s first CORE event had already featured Robin DiAngelo, whose famous idea is that white people are all racist and evil, as well as Carmen Perez, the Farrakhan supporter who served as one of the leaders of the Women's March before being forced out.

Amazon also invited Ijeoma Oluo, a self-described “internet yeller” who had written a book arguing that “white male mediocrity” is a theme throughout history. That’s exactly the message that a company of white male engineers needed to hear. Oluo had berated her own mother, who raised her after being abandoned by her Nigerian academic father, over her “white privilege”.

Also at Amazon’s first CORE was Michael Welp whose White Men As Full Diversity Partners stirred a backlash when its training at Lockheed described white men as racists and privileged.

Welp was also present at the second CORE event while stigmatizing white people.

Alicia Garza, a co-founder of the racist black nationalist hate group Black Lives Matter, appeared on a CORE panel together with DiAngelo and Perez.

Also, there was Latasha Gillespie, the head of global diversity and inclusion at Amazon Studios, who has claimed that police murder black people while ranting about "white privilege".

The second CORE event also included rabid hatred for America with Edgar Villanueva showing a slide that described America as being based on colonization and genocide.

What impact did all of these racist and hateful ideas have on Amazon employees?

Amazon, like many other major corporations, has submerged its employees in the dogma of critical race theory. And while this is meant to lead to the discrimination and mistreatment of white employees in the name of equity, could it also lead to violence against white people?

The Big Tech monopoly has relied on independent contractors to build its delivery network. However, Amazon also exercises a great deal of control over these drivers. And as its statement after the “white privilege” assault in California shows, it ultimately controls their employment.

Amazon has embedded equity into its Delivery Service Partner push and encouraged existing employees to become DSPs. Did any of its existing racist CORE programming have an influence on the cultural ecosystem of the DSP that employed Itzel Ramirez?

That is unfortunately a question that no one in the media appears to be asking.

The rise of the DSP system paralleled the rise of critical race theory at Amazon. Even while Amazon was finding new ways to virtue signal, it was also finding new ways to exploit workers.

Amazon’s DSP program evades accountability for delivery drivers like Ramirez who wear its blue vests and drive its vans, but who are actually working for small contractors, many of them minorities, who are being deliberately kept small so they can never compete for a better deal.

The Big Tech giant will insist that it had no responsibility for the assault on one of its customers by a racist driver who had absorbed the critical race theory slur of “white privilege” that Amazon had endorsed by featuring racist figures and rhetoric at its CORE inclusion events.

Amazon’s white leadership encourages racism against white people while remaining insulated from minority workers who might want to lash out at the nearest white person they can find.

When BLM and Antifa created CHAZ in their Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone, the epicenter was about a dozen blocks away from Andy Jassy's 1906 mansion on the outskirts of Capitol Hill. But there's a world of differences between the local small businesses that were terrorized by black nationalists and anarchists in CHAZ and the sedate tree-lined street of multi-million dollar Victorian homes where Jassy and his pro-Sanders designer wife comfortably reside.

The incoming Amazon CEO may rant about the police and his home may boast the ubiquitous "Black Lives Matter" "No Human is Illegal", and "Science is Real" lawn sign preferred by wealthy woke suburbanites, but his estate is protected by a spiked gate and high walls disguised by massive hedges. Defunding the police is an experience to be lived out by other, poorer people.

Some people may be beaten by Amazon’s critical race theory drivers over their white privilege, but Amazon executives have spiked gates to make certain they’re not the ones being beaten.

If you want to be thorough about the matter, of course, you can’t talk about the ongoing destruction of the city of Minneapolis under the auspices of its callow, hapless young mayor, Jacob Frey – aptly described by New York Post columnist Miranda Devine as a “soy boy,” a “man-child,” and a “half-price Justin Trudeau” (they’re both cute in the same doe-eyed, dumb-looking way) – without also taking into account the pernicious contributions of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, whose mantra, since the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, has been “systemic racism”; Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, who, with breathtaking mendacity, blamed last year’s Antifa and BLM mayhem on “white supremacists”; the state’s Hamas-linked, Jew-hating Attorney General Keith Ellison, a serial girlfriend abuser and longtime Farrakhan acolyte who boasts continually of his efforts toward “social transformation”; and radical-left City Council President Lisa Bender, who, when challenged (by CNN, no less!) on her ridiculous call for “a future without police,” dismissed public concerns about armed home burglaries as coming from “a place of privilege.”

But although each of these reprehensible characters has played a significant role in Minneapolis’s current tragedy, Frey, who turns forty in July, is without question the star of the show. His big moment came on June 6 of last year, when, in what Devine characterized as “a scene reminiscent of a Maoist struggle session,” the masked, t-shirted mayor inanely confessed to a restive crowd of black radicals that he was “coming to grips with my own brokenness.” Yet even this wince-inducing display of abject contrition wasn’t enough for them: when he told them he wouldn’t defund the police (although, as he assured the New York Times, he believes fervently in “deep structural reform of a racist system”), they jeered at him, and Frey, looking for all the world like a teenager being sent to bed without dinner by his parents, meekly obeyed the rabble’s command to go home. Did it count for nothing with this mob that two days earlier, in an almost equally pathetic tableau, Frey had abased himself at a memorial service for George Floyd, sobbing hysterically for over a minute, his entire body trembling and heaving, as he knelt by the creep’s casket? Or did the June 6 horde, having observed this embarrassing spectacle, figure that if this wuss could be brought so low, so fast, so easily, then perhaps, with just a little more humiliation, he might not only shutter the police department but offer to put every last cop in front of a firing squad?

These scenes of well-nigh unprecedented public debasement, as it happens, came after several days during which Frey, not previously known for a preoccupation with race relations, privately strove, in the wake of Floyd’s demise, to play catch-up, holding mawkish phone calls with black staffers and colleagues and activists and clergy, attending what the Star-Tribune called a “listening session hosted by Black media outlets,” reading a book about “the long-lasting psychological damage of racism,” and essentially apologizing for his whiteness to pretty much everyone in town with a melanin count higher than his own. So eager was he to ingratiate himself with the canaille - justice be damned - that before the verdict came in at the Derek Chauvin trial, he declared, disgracefully: “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.” And this in a burg that was once famous mainly for being safe, clean, and dull – identified in the American mind with wholesome Seventies sitcom heroine Mary Richards and with the hard-working, law-abiding Scandinavian-Americans who called it home.

Indeed, while racial unrest is old news in places like Baltimore, Detroit, St.Louis, and Los Angeles, it’s new to Minneapolis – and to Minnesota generally, where, as Powerline’s John Hinderaker noted recently, the “population was barely 1 percent African-American” until 1980 or so; in the decades since, the growth in the non-white population has been the result mostly of mass welfare migration and a tsunami of Somali refugees. If black people consider Minneapolis a white supremacist hellhole, they sure have an odd way of showing it. Yet Frey would have you believe that his city has for generations been a locus of world-class tensions between oppressive whites and tyrannized blacks, that the Chauvin trial was part of a “global reckoning” after “centuries-long inequities and racial injustice.” And what was Frey’s own contribution to this momentous “reckoning”? Unforgivably, and to what we may hope will be his everlasting infamy, he decided to let criminal gangs run riot in the streets, laying waste to homes, banks, stores, libraries; faced with a decision either to send in the police to protect lives and property or to virtue signal by caving to a barbaric mob, he chose the latter, even instructing police to abandon a precinct house to the mindless jackals. After all, Frey pronounced, the havoc wrought by black rioters was the result of “400 years” of “built-up anger and sadness” and was thus “not only understandable” but “right.”

Among the victims of all this “understandable” violence have been several black Minneapolis children. On April 30 of this year, Ladavionne Garrett Jr., 10, was shot in the head in his parents’ car; he had brain surgery and slipped into a coma, but so far has managed to cling to life. On May 15, Trinity Ottoson-Smith, 9, was struck by a stray bullet at a birthday party and rushed to a hospital by police; when she died twelve days later, Frey tweeted tritely: “No parent should ever have to say goodbye to their child.” On May 17, Aniya Allen, 6, was shot by a stray bullet while eating a Happy Meal in a car outside her home; when she died two days later, Frey tweeted: “Aniya’s life mattered. Ladavionne and Trinity’s lives matter. We owe it to them and their families to help get answers.” Answers? The answers were obvious. Savages given carte blanche by Frey to go on shooting rampages had slaughtered innocent children. In all likelihood, these savages were black males – career criminals, probably, like Floyd, whom Frey had mourned so ostentatiously. But Frey, naturally, made no mention of this detail. (Nor, when he lamented, on March 17, the growing number of assaults on Asian-Americans, did he acknowledge that most of the perpetrators were black, and that these assaults were simply part of an overall rise in black crime; instead, he attributed them to “[h]ateful rhetoric,” presumably by white racists.)

The deaths of Trinity and Aniya, and the ordeal of Ladavionne, taught Frey nothing. His tweets about them came off as perfunctory. Only when white cops kill black hooligans does he seem to break out the Kleenex. This was demonstrated on April 11, when a police officer in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center killed Daunte Wright, a black man resisting arrest on a weapons warrant; it was demonstrated again on June 3, when another black man, Winston Boogie Smith (was his mother an Orwell fan?), died during an exchange of gunfire with U.S. Marshals trying to arrest him for murder. Like Floyd’s death, but not those of Ladavionne or Trinity or Aniya, the deaths of Wright and Smith sparked new rounds of civil unrest in the Twin Cities – and more tearful hand-wringing by the reflexively repentant boy mayor: “The anguish in Katie Wright’s voice after losing her son echoes in my mind and across our entire state this morning….Minneapolis stands firmly with the people of Brooklyn Center in seeking justice for Daunte Wright and peace in our cities.” 

Even when he isn’t weeping convulsively over dead hoodlums, Frey engages in an over-the-top brand of racial pandering that self-respecting black Minneapolitans must surely find condescending. Every time he stands at a lectern (invariably coming off like a kid who’s been cast as a mayor in a school play), he repeats the same absurd hyperbole about the “400 years of injustice” that are now hitting the black community “like a tidal wave”; about how he’s “building a new and inclusive community as we speak”; about the urgent need to transform the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue, where Floyd died, into a “permanent memorial to George Floyd and everything that he stood for [!] in his life”; and about how the black citizens of Minneapolis should henceforth be the “key beneficiaries” of municipal largesse. Post-Floyd, pretty much every issue, in Frey’s anything-but-colorblind mind, seems to have become tinged with race: for example, he recently applauded a push in the Minnesota statehouse to legalize recreational pot use as an “encouraging step for racial justice.” You can’t make this stuff up.

As much as he’s genuflected toward blacks, moreover, Frey hasn’t neglected to fawn impressively over other non-whites. On April 12 (two days after tweeting that a newly opened Muslim eatery offered “the best goat I’ve ever had”), he bragged about having “granted a noise permit to Dar Al-Hijrah for Cedar-Riverside to broadcast the call to prayer for the holy month of Ramadan”; on May 13, he tweeted: “As this Holy Month comes to a close, I’m wishing all our Muslim friends and neighbors who observed Ramadan a happy and healthy Eid al-Fitr.” Note that while Frey, a Reform Jew, twice referred to Ramadan as “holy,” he failed, last fall, to tweet so much as a word about Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur. As for the two major Christian holidays in 2020-21, he contented himself with a brief, breezy “Merry Christmas to those celebrating” and “Happy Easter, Minneapolis.” And this man who called Ramadan “holy” made no mention of God in his Thanksgiving tweet (“Our family couldn’t be more grateful for the frontline workers, healthcare heroes,” etc.), which, in any case, was considerably less enthusiastic than his tweet, a week later, about Native American Heritage Day: “Love seeing Indigenous voices lifted up & celebrated….Leaders like Autumn Dillie [of the American Indian Community Development Association] are working year-round to make MPLS a better place.”

And, alas, his actions match his contemptible words. Repeatedly, he’s given the thumbs-up to special treatment for blacks at the expense of whites. In February he touted the Minneapolis Climate Action and Racial Equity Fund, which, in the name of pursuing an “inclusive” approach to climate change, distributes public funds exclusively to BIPOC- and immigrant-owned businesses; in March he promoted another initiative, this one administered by the Metropolitan Economic Development Association, that also enriches only black firms. The goal of Minneapolis’s post-COVID recovery, he explains, “has never been to return to the way things were. A more equitable economy means specifically lifting Black businesses.” Some might decry this policy as blatantly racist; but Frey calls it “inclusive recovery and transformation,” boasting that “equity has been the driving force behind allocating the limited funding we have.” Yes, not equality but equity – meaning systematic discrimination to address “systemic racism.” For if your city is emerging from a pandemic-induced economic crisis that was made even worse by a concomitant epidemic of black vandalism, arson, and looting, how to handle the recovery justly other than by throwing money at blacks and freezing out whites? On Martin Luther King Day, Frey proclaimed that he was “in awe of [King’s] legacy of championing meaningful change”; but virtually everything that this nincompoop has said and done during the last year has been utterly, and dangerously, at odds with King’s noble proposition that it’s character - not skin color - that counts.

Islamic Republic of Iran’s new president ordered thousands killed in mass executions and tortured pregnant women

And Biden’s handlers are in the process of giving him billions and a green light for a nuclear weapons program. What could possibly go wrong? America is back!

“Ultraconservative ‘Butcher’ Ebrahim Raisi who ordered thousands killed in mass executions and tortured pregnant women wins Iranian presidential election,” by Gemma Parry, MailOnline, June 19, 2021:

Ebrahim Raisi has been named Iran’s next president, after his rivals conceded before official results were even announced in the country’s lowest ever election turnout for a presidential election.

Raisi is known as ‘the butcher’ for disappearing and executing thousands of opposition prisoners in 1988 while serving as Tehran’s deputy prosecutor and allegedly ordering pregnant woman tortured.

It is thought that at least several thousand and possibly more than 30,000 activists were put to death – hanged by construction cranes in batches of 10 – during the purge.

Iranian political prisoners who were interrogated, tortured and sentenced to die by Raisi have recently told of their horrifying experiences.

Farideh Goudarzi, who was jailed for being part of a banned political group, told MailOnline how Raisi watched guards drop her baby on the floor as part of one brutal interrogation – after she was tortured while pregnant and forced to give birth in jail.

Similarly Mahmoud Royaee, another political prisoner interrogated by Raisi during the 1988 executions, said he once handed down a death sentence to an inmate who was in the midst of an epileptic fit.

Amnesty International have said that Raisi should be investigated for alleged crimes against humanity for his role on the ‘Death Commission’.

‘That Ebrahim Raisi has risen to the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder, enforced disappearance and torture, is a grim reminder that impunity reigns supreme in Iran,’ Amnesty said in a statement.

Raisi won 62 per cent of the votes with 90 per cent counted so far. Turnout figures of just under 50 per cent were recorded after voting was extended by two hours amid fears that turnout would be lower than 50 per cent.

Exiled opposition groups said that the majority of voters shunned the presidential elections, hailing the boycott which they urged voters to take part in as a blow to the country’s theocratic system.

Maryam Rajavi, the leader of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said the ‘nationwide boycott’ was the ‘greatest political and social blow’ to the system led by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

‘The boycott proved and showed the world that the Iranian people’s only vote is to overthrow this mediaeval regime,’ she was quoted by the NCRI as saying.

The People’s Mujahedin Organisation of Iran (MEK/PMOI) whose political wing is the NCRI believe the actual turnout was 10 percent and the authorities have inflated it by a factor of five in an ‘astronomical fabrication’, the NCRI said….

ST. LOUIS’ Racist Mayor: Tishaura Jones

BY JOSEPH KLEIN

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/racist-mayor-tishaura-jones-joseph-klein/;

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

Editor's note: This is the 7th part in Frontpage Mag's new series on Racist Mayors. (See previous parts below this article). Stay tuned for more installments.

The murder rate in St. Louis, Missouri, which is at a 50-year high, is reportedly the highest in the country. Tishaura Jones, who became St. Louis’s first African American female mayor last April, rejects the notion that it is the individuals who commit the violent crimes who should be held fully responsible for their crimes and serve their sentences in prison.  Jones, a radical leftist who has been described as a “champion of Black Lives Matter,” believes that society is responsible. She blames “systemic racism” and poverty as the root causes of the rampant crime afflicting her city. The newly elected mayor believes the answers to the crime problem in St. Louis are to cut the police department budget, close a jail, end cash bail, mandate mental health evaluations for police officers, and send social workers in response to 911 calls.

In one of her first decisions as mayor, Jones proposed an initial $4 million reduction in the St. Louis Police Department budget, including the elimination of 98 officers’ positions from the police force. “More police doesn't prevent crime,” Jones asserted last month. Nevertheless, in the typical leftwing hypocrisy of “rules for thee but not for me,” Mayor Jones “doubled the number of police officers on her personal security team,” according to the Police Tribune. While “Jones is beefing up her personal security,” the Police Tribune added, “she doesn’t seem as worried about the security of her voters.”

Former St. Louis Public Safety Director Jimmie Edwards, an African American, said last year that protesters outraged over police brutality against African Americans are ignoring the main issue involving the loss of black lives to crime. “Black-on-black crime--we run away from it like it doesn't happen," Edwards said. Jones rejects this premise out of hand, despite the overwhelming evidence that supports Edwards’ statement of fact. Jones' rush to blame a supposedly white-controlled racist system for the crimes rather than the perpetrators themselves - too often blacks killing or maiming other blacks - is racist in itself.

During her campaign for mayor, Jones tweeted that she planned on replacing Edwards because “it's time for a new direction. We'll put the public back in public safety, we'll make sure that police aren't the only response when you call 9-1-1, and we'll lead with prevention-first.” Edwards resigned before the April 2021 mayoral election.

As Matthew Vadum noted in his May 29th FrontPage article, “Jones’s campaign, which focused on ‘progressive’ criminal justice reforms, was unabashedly racist.” For example, Jones proudly tweeted on March 30th essentially what she had said during her debate with her liberal white female opponent: “A white person doesn’t have to have the ‘talk’ with their children. While I appreciate the role of white allies in this movement of progress, I don’t believe they have the lived experience to lead a majority-minority City right now.”

Jones racially stereotyped white parents and children as being too “privileged” to bother having a serious “talk” about crime.

Moreover, in Tishaura Jones’ racially divided world of "oppressors" versus the "oppressed," whites have no business running St. Louis solely because they are of the wrong skin color. Jones reiterated this message during her victory lap as Mayor-Elect. During a CNN interview on April 8th, Jones said that “what I heard from voters is that they are ready for a black woman to lead this city, that a black woman has lived experiences that others do not.” Jones is a purveyor of racist identity politics.

This wasn’t Jones’ first run for mayor. “St. Louis is the epicenter of Black Lives Matter,” Jones declared back in 2017 when she ran against and lost to a white female, Lyda Krewson, who chose not to run for re-election in 2021. After winning this time against another white female opponent, Jones spitefully declined to invite Krewson to her April 20th inaugural ceremony – breaking a decades-old tradition.

Mayor Jones is now busy making St. Louis City Hall the epicenter of Black Lives Matter and its anti-white, far-left progressive platform. Jones is also trying to do the same with the St. Louis Public Schools Board of Education, filling a vacant seat with a 25-year old pro-Back Lives Matter activist named Alisha Sonnier.

Sonnier made her mark as a leftwing agitator when she helped lead a student week-long occupation of a portion of Saint Louis University’s campus in 2014. Just seven years later, the young activist ran for a seat on the Board of Education. The only candidate out of ten whom Jones endorsed during the campaign was Sonnier, who lost anyway. Not to worry as far as Jones was concerned. After Jones won her own campaign for mayor, she used her current appointment power to have Sonnier fill a remaining vacant seat on the Board of Education.

Three weeks prior to the announcement of Sonnier’s appointment to the Board of Education on May 11th, Sonnier tweeted “that it’s time we look at how systematic oppression, capitalism & other structural inequities are negatively impacting us all & we’re overdue for systematic changes.”

Less than two weeks after her appointment, Sonnier tweeted enthusiastically about an event she attended where she had the opportunity to discuss “the intersection of white supremacy + class + patriarchy + abortion.” With Sonnier, Mayor Jones’s handpicked leftwing progressive wunderkind on the St. Louis Public Schools Board of Education, some radical changes in education may be right around the corner. St. Louis public school teachers and students could soon see the racist, anti-white critical race theory and the New York Times’ historically distorted “1619 Project” become an integral part of the St. Louis public school curriculum.

Mayor Tishaura Jones blames St. Louis’s out-of-control crime rate on systemic racism and poverty. The police, she believes, are a major part of the problem rather than a key part of the solution. It is estimated that the homicide rate per 100,000 in 2020 was 87.2. If systemic racism and poverty are the long-term root causes of crime as Jones and her Black Lives Matter allies claim, how do they explain the much lower homicide rate between 1997 and 2001, when a former African American mayor who had previously served as chief of police was in charge? It's worth looking back for a moment to get some perspective on Jones's racially divisive agenda as the third African American elected mayor in St. Louis.

During Clarence Harmon’s one term as the second African American elected mayor in St. Louis, the average homicide rate per 100,000 was under 40. Harmon’s predecessor, Freeman R. Bosley Jr., was the first African American elected mayor in St. Louis, whom Harmon defeated in the March 1997 mayoral Democratic primary. During Bosley Jr.’s one term, the homicide rate per 100,000 exceeded 50. After Harmon completed his term and brought the homicide rate down by approximately 20 percent, the rate did not rise above 50 again until 2015.

Bosley Jr. and Harmon had widely divergent approaches to dealing with crime and race, which first played out when Harmon resigned out of frustration as St. Louis’s police chief in 1995 while Bosley Jr. was mayor. Harmon felt that he was not getting enough support as police chief from Bosley Jr., who tended to look at the police through a racial prism. Harmon decided instead to run in 1997 against Bosley, Jr., who was seeking a second term as mayor.

During their 1997 primary campaign for mayor against each other, Bosley Jr.’s father, Alderman Freeman Bosley Sr., called Harmon a ``rented Negro.″  Bosley Jr.’s campaign was built around such racial polarization, casting Harmon as the white establishment candidate. Harmon ran his campaign as a coalition builder seeking racial rapport. ”The best representation is provided for all the people,” Harmon said. ”Everybody has to feel included.”

The voters in St. Louis back then were turned off by the racially tinged rhetoric of Bosley Jr.’s campaign. They felt more confident voting for the law and order candidate with a strong police background and sent Bosley Jr. packing. After Harmon won the general election the next month against two white opponents, he said "I'm ready to start the healing process beginning with this moment, the healing process St. Louis so desperately needs."

Fast forward to 2021. Tishaura Jones ran a racially charged, anti-police campaign. Rather than seek to heal racial divisions in her city after she won the election, Jones is using her office to widen the racial divide. That’s how leftwing progressive racists roll.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Slams Democrat Bill to Destroy Police While Embracing Antifa

“If you don’t fund law enforcement, you’re funding criminals.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene delivered a jaw-dropping speech exposing America’s “two-track justice system”, as well as the disastrous anti-police legislation H.R.1280.

The speech, delivered in the House of Representatives on May 20, slams the double standard of the treatment of January 6th protestors versus the violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters.

“If you’re part of the democrat-sponsored democrat terrorist organization B.L.M. and antifa,” she said, “[Y]ou can burn down American cities for an entire year, get bailed out of jail, and face no investigation or commission from congress.”

The Two-Track Justice System

As reported extensively at RAIR Foundation USA, the damage done during the riots last year was incalculable. Rep. Taylor Greene detailed much of the damage during her presentation.

“Rioters did a horrific and jaw-dropping amount of damage to cities across America,” MTG said in part. “During 2020, there was up to $2 billion in damage due to the riots that swept the nation. The most expensive in insurance history,” she continued.

By contrast, many individuals in Washington, D.C. on January 6th have been hunted, imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement for simply wandering into the Capitol building through open doors. It should be noted that federal and state buildings are often targets for violent leftist agitators, but they are largely ignored and certainly not referred to as “insurrectionists”.

“Meanwhile,” MTG continued, “if you’re a Trump supporter who happened to be at the Capitol on January 6, you face exorbitant bail, solitary confinement, abusive jail guards, and no due process.”

As RAIR observed on January 9th, “If citizens do not push back against these political arrests, they will only continue and get worse.”

Anti-Police Legislation

As reported at RAIR, the unconstitutional “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act” would cripple police officers and empower criminals.

Rep. Taylor Greene said that H.R. 1280 will remove “qualified immunity” for police. She explained how devastating this could be:

That means police officers can be sued if someone is upset with them for their actions on the job. Police officers don’t make a lot of money. They can’t afford big attorney bills. It will ruin them. Just because someone may get their feelings hurt because they got arrested. H.R. 1280 also will allow police officers to be put on a list.

That means if it’s proven or unproven, someone can accuse a police officer of doing some sort of wrong and their name and information gets put on a public list that the department of justice will manage on a website that’s open to anyone that wants to look it up. Founded or unfounded, their actions, no matter if it’s true or not, their name goes on this list and what they’re being accused of.

Watch:

 

Transcript:

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Oh, is this one on? Yes. Mr. Speaker, I’d like to address the two-track justice system here in the united states. If you’re part of the democrat-sponsored democrat terrorist organization B.L.M. and antifa, you can burn down American cities for an entire year, get bailed out of jail, and face no investigation or commission from congress.

Meanwhile, if you’re a Trump supporter who happened to be at the Capitol on January 6, you face exorbitant bail, solitary confinement, abusive jail guards, and no due process. This is an outrage. Just today, just this week, congress told all of the American citizens that congress cares more about congress than the American people.

After all, we have witnessed American cities all over our country be victims to violent riots by domestic terrorists all over this country. The people have endured this. Businesses have been destroyed. Violence has happened. Police officers night after night have been abused, have had to endure these violent riots, attacks on and on.

But yet, this institution has been focused on itself and focused on investigating January 6, even though there are many investigations already happening here through the senate and the house committees. There have already been over 445 people arrested from January 6. There are also more than 100 to be arrested soon. There is justice happening for the riot here at the capitol on january 6.

Republicans and Democrats together are against the violence and the riot that happened here in the capitol on January 6. But the problem lies with this — republicans and democrats are not together on the violence that’s happened to the people all over this country throughout the past year.

And that’s why congress is only concerned with itself and not about the American people. Rioters did a horrific and jaw-dropping amount of damage to cities across America. During 2020, there was up to $2 billion in damage due to the riots that swept the nation. The most expensive in insurance history.

By the way, that’s not a $2 billion bailout fund coming from the government. That’s not a taxpayer-funded check. That’s private money. That’s private money that insurance companies are having to pay because domestic terrorists rioted.

The damage done to federal buildings is costly. B.L.M. In Nashville set a federal courthouse on fire. It cost $1.2 million in damages. This is a federal courthouse. Why were those involved attacking and setting fire to this federal courthouse not called insurrectionists? It’s a question that needs to be asked.

Rioters in Portland destroyed barriers and attempted to burn down government buildings causing $1.6 million in damage to the federal courthouse downtown. See. Why is this not called an insurrection? And again, why is congress not concerned with creating a commission for this type of damage and the people that caused this attack?

And in North Carolina, a courthouse was broken into and set on fire resulting in roughly $200,000 in damages. Again, it’s a courthouse, why is that not called an insurrection? And there’s not a government bailout or a commission in place to investigate these things.

Los Angeles, Oakland, Louisville and Dakota City also had damage to federal buildings. These cities are not being named. Members of congress are not demanding a commission to investigate the damages happening to the federal buildings in these cities? No one is being called insurrectionists for the damage done to these federal buildings?

Most of the time if you watch the news, they are called peaceful protestors. These are not peaceful protests. These are violent domestic acts of terror and this is how they should be viewed and handled. The looting, burning and destruction across America have cost cities millions and millions of dollars.

Riots caused an estimated $55 million in damage in Minneapolis alone. Minneapolis city officials estimate 700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed, including, 360 local businesses. And I have an article right here that contains a list of 1,500 businesses that were damaged or destroyed. 1,500 businesses.

By the way, it’s these businesses and these business owners that pay the taxes that fund everything that we do here. These people should matter. Their businesses should matter. Why is there not a commission investigating this? Why doesn’t congress care about these people and their businesses?

Rioters in Portland set up an autonomous zone and cost the city $2.3 million in damages. Autonomous zone? What is an autonomous zone? How can people take over an American city and say it is theirs and that they control it and that no government authority can come in and enforce the law, enforce law and order in this part of the city. But this is what happened with peaceful protestors in Portland. They created an autonomous zone costing the taxpayers of Portland $2.3 million in damages. Again, that was not a bailout fund. Those are people’s actual dollars, private citizens’ dollars.

Riots in New York are estimated to have cost the city $115 million. One Friday night alone cost the city $100,000 and resulted in the arrest of 150 rioters. That was in one night. It’s unbelievable. Riots in Salt lake city cost $100,000 in damages. Riots in Wichita, Kansas cost the police department nearly $1.5 million in overtime. Because they had to work. They had to show up for another shift. When they were exhausted from working the shift before. So they had to be paid overtime because they were overrun with rioters.

Riots in Denver cost the city at least $5.5 million in damages and in overtime. This is unbelievable where antifa, B.L.M. Rioters causing so much violence in a city that these police departments are having to call police officers back in after working their shift, long hours, no, I’m sorry, you can’t go to your family and do things that you need to do in your regular life. We need you to come back and work overtime because our city is overrun with violence.

But yet here, the United States congress, the 117th congress has no interest in launching a commission to investigate, to stop these incredibly organized and well-funded organizations of terror across the American cities in the country that is causing private citizens, businesses, insurance companies, cities, counties and states so much money?

It all comes from American citizens and taxpayers. You know, money is not created right here in congress. This is not a facility, not an institution that creates revenue. The only revenue that congress operates on is the American people’s tax dollars that they have to pay right here to the federal government.

Congress needs to learn to put the people first and not itself. Riots in Baltimore cost the city an estimated $26 million. Again, American taxpayer dollars. Riots in Kansas city resulted in $2.1 million in damages. Mostly over the course of just one weekend. That’s some kind of party, isn’t it where antifa and B.L.M. Terrorists can go out and riot in violence and rage in one weekend costing the city $1.2 million.

Rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, set off fireworks near the police and courthouse and set two city trucks on fire. Altogether, the destruction cost the city $50 million. Does anyone understand what $50 million is? That is an exorbitant amount of money in damages for people that were angry and think it’s OK to riot and destroy other peoples’ properties and businesses and tear down a community. There’s no excuse for that.

Here we have California close down all of its state buildings in downtown areas that staff should not report to work for any reason. That sounds like a third-world country where you have California closing its state buildings in downtown areas saying your staff should not report to work for any reason, why? Because it’s too dangerous for you.

Yet this congress is concerned about spending money on a January 6 commission, when there is already multiple investigations underway. There’s already been 445 arrests already made, 100 more to take place, but yet this congress is not concerned about all of the violence and the organizations that caused all of this to the point where California has to say don’t come to work, it’s dangerous? It’s unreal. This is our country.

The police officers who defend Americans paid a great price as well. Just like the Capitol police officers here in the Capitol did. The police officers all over the country in American cities, it just didn’t happen to them on one day or part of the day. It happened to them night after night, day after day continuously.

In some cities, for a short time, weeks, but in some cities, months and months. And it still continues. The major cities chief association found between May 25 and July 31, there were 8,700 protests nationwide. 8,700. How many were there on January 6? One. Nearly 600 of those protests were declared riots with violence and criminal acts and 2,385 looting incidents were reported. 600 of them were declared violent riots. 2,385 looting incidents.

Again how many times did that happen here at the Capitol? We’ll go with one riot. But this congress is more interested in spending an unknown amount of money to investigate one riot here because this congress seems to only care about itself and not the American people. Three-quarters of law enforcement agencies reported officers harmed during the protests, three-quarters of law enforcement agencies, why don’t we hear about them over and over on the news? Does no one care about those police officers’ lives? Apparently not.

This congress obviously doesn’t. More than 624 Arizonans were reported in and 97 police vehicles were burned. Do you know whose money that is? Taxpayers’ dollars that did nothing wrong to deserve these riots in their cities and the police officers that do a good job every day don’t deserve it either just because of the actions of a few bad a.M. Himself. The ncaa reported that over 2 ,000 law enforcement officers were injured in these nine weeks alone. This is why I introduced h.R. 2446 to award police all over the country who defended american cities, they deserve medals. They deserve medialities because no one is acknowledging what they have gone through night after night day after day with what cnn calls peaceful protests. I don’t think so.

B.L.M. and antifa domestic terrorists are bailed out and supported by our new vice president Harris. George Floyd died on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As you see here on June 1, we have been senator Kamala Harris and then vice-presidential candidate for the united states sharing, tweeting to the Minnesota Freedom Fund encouraging people, if you are able, chip in now, chip in now. Spend some more money to the Minnesota freedom fund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota. But yet we know what was going on. These were not protests but violent riots.

I’m sorry, you can’t stand in front of a city on fire and people fighting and say it’s a protest, it’s a riot and it’s not peaceful. Kamala Harris and unfortunately my own colleague from Minneapolis, representative Omar shared links to the Minnesota Freedom Fund with their millions of Twitter followers, and you know what? It raised a lot of money. In August the Minnesota Freedom Fund reported that it raised $35 million in donations.

Yes, when the democratic candidate for vice president of the United States says ‘Donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund,’ people donated. When the congresswoman from Minneapolis, Minnesota, shared on her twitter to millions of followers and said, point it down, meaning follow suit, donate.

Guess what? They raised $35 million. And guess what happened from that. As a result of all the money raised by then-senator Kamala Harris and then the democrat vice president of the United States, now our current vice president and current congresswoman from Minneapolis, Minnesota, 184 domestic terrorist criminals that rioted, 184 of them were bailed out from the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

The criminals they helped bail out include a woman who shot at the S.W.A.T. Team. . . Another woman who was accused of killing her own friend and a convicted rapist. That’s a few of the people bailed out with the money raised directly for the Minnesota Freedom Fund by then-senator Kamala Harris and congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Shared on their own twitter pages. Can you imagine if a republican congresswoman or man or a republican senator or president shared a bail bond link and said, bail out the protesters from January 6, can you imagine the result of that? It would be unreal.

There has been no backlash. There have been no consequences. There has been no action taken from this responsibility supporting domestic terrorists who were responsible for crime and costing innocent American people an exorbitant amount of money, stress, ruining communities, ruining people’s livelihoods, and tearing apart our country. No. No accountability whatsoever.

The criminals — excuse me — these democrat lawmakers have also voted for defunding police departments across the country. So while they also raise money for domestic terrorists committing crimes to be bailed out of jail, at the same time they legislate and vote to defund police. H.R. 1280 that they voted for and passed removed qualified immunity, removed qualified immunity.

That means police officers can be sued if someone is upset with them for their actions on the job. Police officers don’t make a lot of money. They can’t afford big attorney bills. It will ruin them. Just because someone may get their feelings hurt because they got arrested. H.R. 1280 also will allow police officers to be put on a list.

That means if it’s proven or unproven, someone can accuse a police officer of doing some sort of wrong and their name and information gets put on a public list that the department of justice will manage on a website that’s open to anyone that wants to look it up. Founded or unfounded, their actions, no matter if it’s true or not, their name goes on this list and what they’re being accused of.

This is what these people voted for to do to police officers and remove a lot of their funding. After the LAPD was defunded by $150 million, vice president Harris said, I applaud Eric Garcetti for doing what he’s done. As a result of the funding cuts, the LAPD dissolved its sexual assault unit.

Defunding the LAPD where they have to get rid of the sexual assault unit, that’s unbelievable. That means women, children, any victim of sexual assault, I’m sorry, there’s not a unit there to help them anymore because they’ve been defunded.

As a result of this defunding that vice president Harris applauds Eric Garcetti for doing what he’s done, there’s been a 73% spike in shootings in l.A. 73%. When you defund the police, ladies and gentlemen, there are direct consequences. That means crime goes up. There’s also been a 200% higher murder rate than last year at the same time. 200%.

If you don’t fund law enforcement, you’re funding criminals. And clearly, we can see this is what some of these democrat lawmakers — lawmakers have done. They’ve clearly funded criminals and defunded the police. Back to Minneapolis and the right outs there — riots there. Notice that this state, 11 — notice this date, 11/4/20. That’s not too long ago. Encouraging donations. See, there’s no excuse for that. November 4, 2020. By that date we had seen plenty of violence and damage all over the streets.

There was no way to call those riots peaceful protests. We know exactly what they are. Domestic acts of terror. And congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s district, 700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed. Who owns those buildings? Mostly private citizens. 1,500 businesses — here’s the list. Here’s the list. It’s reported from the “Star Tribune” from Minneapolis for the Twin Cities, 1,500 privately owned businesses, heavily damaged, two destroyed, mostly completely destroyed.

The problem with congress is, congress does not get up early every single day, go into its business and have to earn the money that keeps it going. Congress does not have to work so hard, lose sleep at night to figure out how to earn the money to keep the doors open to their business.

Congress does not have to lose sleep at night when things get rough like when the government shuts down the economy because of a Chinese Virus and tells businesses that they cannot keep their door open and sell their goods and services, that they cannot earn a living.

You see, congress doesn’t understand how hard it is to figure out how to keep paying your employees when that happens to you. And congress doesn’t understand or seem to care about doing a commission for the people that pay the taxes to keep the lights on in this building, to care about them and why they were violently attacked.

No. Only congress cares about itself and why it was attacked on January 6, even though there are multiple investigations going on. Even though there have been 445 people arrested and 100 people more arrested. And justice should be served for those that committed violence here at the capitol on January 6. But congress doesn’t care about the American people that have suffered this entire year. And it’s despicable. The human cost of a year of riots and violence is 25 American lives lost. That’s been estimated. 25 Americans are dead as a direct result of B.L.M. And antifa terrorism that swept our nation.

I’ll go ahead and tell you about one. This little girl, her name is Secoriea Turner. She was killed at a Wendy’s in Atlanta because there were riots going on. Her mother was pulling in the Wendy’s, turning around, trying to go the right way when gunshots were fired that took Secoria Turner’s life. She was 8 years old. This little girl was 8 years old and was murdered during a riot.

There’s not a commission being launched in here for her life. There’s also not a commission being launched for the life of David Dorn. A great man. A retired police officer who was murdered during domestic terrorist, B.L.M., riots. Why does congress not care about David Dorn? Why does congress not care about Secoriea Turner?

Despite all of this damage, there is no investigation into domestic terrorism from congress. We have no commission launched to investigate the funding of antifa. There’s no investigation into the funding of B.L.M. There’s no commission set forward for the past year of violent riots. But all they care about is the commission for the one riot here on January 6.

The accused on January 6 have been — they’ve been abused behind bars. They’ve been denied due process rights. They’re still being held in jail. Michael Sherwin from D.C. bragged they rounded up 400 people who participated in the breach of the capitol on January 6. He said he wanted to charge as many people as possible. What kind of justice system do we have if officials are eager to charge as many people as possible but they don’t care about antifa domestic terrorists and they don’t care about the people in those riots?

The Biden administration has taken investigators who normally work on drug trafficking, child pornography, and assigned them to calling relatives and even ex-girlfriends of the January 6 accused and attempt to find them guilty. Please put them back on drug trafficking and child pornography.

These departments are being defunded anyways. One person accused faces seven years in prison for walking through the open doors of the capitol, taking photos in the hallway and leaving without doing any harm. Even the mainstream media outlets outlets have reported on D.C. Jail guards cruel beating trump supporters. One man was beaten so badly he has a skull fracture and is now blind in one eye. You hardly hear about that on the news. Months after January 6, men and women are still being held in jail, and they haven’t seen their day in court.

Justice should be served for January 6, but this congress needs to care about the people of the united states who have not seen justice for the riots of the past year. This congress is failing the American people. Not only are we a nation nearly $30 trillion in debt, but we have a congress that could care less about law and order and the united states. I yield the remainder of my time.

Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues D.C. Cops to Learn the Identity of Her Killer

BY KEVIN DOWNEY, JR.

The family of Ashli Babbitt is suing Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) to learn the identity of the officer who fatally shot Babbitt in the Capitol on January 6.

Court documents show that the plaintiff, Aaron Babbitt, filed the lawsuit on April 21, 2021. Under Washington code, the MPD was supposed to produce the requested information or prove that the department is legally exempt from doing so within 15 days. As of June 4, the department has yet to do either.

Aaron Bobbitt’s attorney, Terrell Roberts, stated the problem with the lawsuit is that Capitol Police are not subject to the law regarding the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

“The complication here is that the Capitol Police are not subject to FOIA. However, they used the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to conduct their investigation,” Roberts explained. “In other words, the United States Attorney’s Office did a criminal investigation and relied upon the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct their factual investigation. And so now that they’ve decided against bringing charges I am going to seek any kind of records that they may have collected in their investigation, including any records which identify the officer.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) decided not to press charges against the Capitol Police officer who shot the unarmed Babbitt as she was attempting to climb through a broken window to get into the House speaker’s lobby, stating, “Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”

Roberts alleges that the officer who killed Babbitt didn’t give her a verbal warning before fatally shooting her with one shot to the neck.

We have seen plenty of shootings where the identity of the cops involved in a shooting are known immediately, including the shootings of young teens like Tamir Rice and Adam Toledo (Rice was holding a pellet gun and Toledo was holding a real one). Personally, I can’t recall a shooting where we didn’t learn the name of the officer involved except for Babbitt’s killer.

Babbitt’s killing seems even harsher knowing that almost half of the Seattle rioters had their federal charges dropped — charges including arson and assault against cops. Ashli Babbitt didn’t start a fire or throw rocks at police officers but a mysterious cop who won’t be named or charged decided lethal force was necessary.

JOURNALIST Andy Ngo Beaten, Hunted Like an Animal in Portland

Andy Ngo attacked by Antifa in Portland full statement

BY VICTORIA TAFT

Journalist Andy Ngo confirms it was he who was beaten on Friday night by an antifa and Black Lives Matter terror cell, which was marauding, setting fires, and vandalizing downtown Portland in “honor” of the “anniversary” of George Floyd riots.

Ngo confirmed the attack on his Twitter feed on Wednesday night after staying silent on his social media since it happened.

In a series of tweets, Ngo wrote:

No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job.

Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore. for a new chapter of my… book, “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.”

I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood. Had I not been able to shelter wounded and bleeding inside a hotel while they beat the doors and windows like animals, there is…no doubt in my mind I would not be here today. Their words, like their actions, speak for themselves.

Ngo included photos of tweets from Antifa and BLM comrades and sympathizers who telegraphed his position, knowing he would be hurt – or worse.

After seeing Ngo’s whereabouts on Twitter, a head-hunting cell broke off the main Antifa/BLM group and outed Ngo, chasing him for blocks. According to Antifa's own “journalists” they jumped and beat the reporter before he found safety in a downtown hotel. Staff protected the terrified Ngo while police scrambled to surround The Nines hotel. Militants screamed epithets at the hotel staff and Ngo, while trying to break into the posh hotel.

Ngo, the author of the book Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy America, and an editor-at-large at The Post Millennial, was in Portland to observe and report on the radical groups during the anniversary of their days of rage in the summer of 2020 – or as those familiar with the French Revolution know them, the “Reign of Terror.” Ngo has moved to Europe because of Antifa threats.

As I reported at PJ Media, there is a long list of victims on Antifa and BLM’s hit list, starting with journalist Mike Strickland, who in 2016 was attacked by Antifa and BLM thugs. Strickland pulled a gun, never firing a shot, but managed to stave off the masked mob. Ngo, a witness, testified at Strickland’s trial. That’s right, Strickland was put on trial for pulling a gun (and never firing a shot) to keep Antifa and BLM from beating him – or worse.

Antifa is not above political assassination, of course, because one of its members actually committed at least one. An Antifa “security” assassin lay in wait last summer after a Trump rally in downtown Portland to kill a Trump supporter in cold blood.

You may not have heard about that assassination. There’s a reason for that, as I’ve explained at PJ Media before.

Ngo insisted in his series of tweets that reporting is not a crime punishable by beatings or death.

Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden. The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist, recording the tactics and true ideology of an extremist clandestine movement that relies on deception and regards…the truth as the greatest threat of all. They want the right to hide their identities behind masks, and erase records of their arrests and alleged crimes. They want me dead for capturing these things and reporting on them.

Ngo said what should be obvious to everyone – except Vladimir Putin: you don’t kill journalists for reporting.

But it is the right of every journalist, protected…and preserved by the founding fathers, to report freely without fear. I was forced to flee my home in Portland last year as the death threats escalated but returned recently to take care of my elderly family.

Ngo, whose parents escaped to the U.S. after America bugged out of the Vietnam War, brought up the Portland antifa/BLM comrades’ attacks on Asians.

When I engaged in field reporting for my book, I did what every…beat reporter would do: I took care to mitigate the risks and went to observe Antifa first-hand during a demonstration at the Justice Center. Like many other journalists Antifa has tried to silence and intimidate through violence and threats, I had to cover my face and eyes…to do my job and stay alive. As the Asian son of Vietnamese immigrants, I also have to be mindful of Antifa’s attacks on multiple people of East Asian origin.

Ngo stated that “the truth” is the “greatest threat of all” to organized communists such as antifa and BLM.

They want to hide behind masks, and erase records of their arrests and alleged crimes. They want me dead for capturing these thing and reporting on them. But it is the right of every journalist, protected and preserved by the founding fathers, to report freely without fear. I was forced to flee my home in Portland last year as death threats escalated, but returned recently to take care of my elderly family.

Ngo went to the hospital after the attack reportedly secreted away from the hotel in an ambulance. He suffered multiple injuries from the beating.

Here’s hoping every single one of those thugs is found, prosecuted, and made to pay for their attack.

And here’s hoping that prosecutors and others who went after Mike Strickland for trying to save himself revisit his case and expunge his record. It’s the least they could do.

BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors, Marxist Abolitionist She doesn’t want to just defund the police — she wants to abolish them.

BY PAUL KENGOR

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/06/blm-founder-patrisse-cullors-marxist-abolitionist-paul-kengor/;

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

Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors has been in the news a lot lately because of controversy over her income and financial dealings, including recent purchases of several new homes. Cullors lashed out at these criticisms by protesting, “The fact that the right-wing media is trying to create hysteria around my spending is, frankly, racist and sexist.”

The fact is that Cullors’ own organization has demanded answers. Hawk Newsome, head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for “an independent investigation” of Cullors. “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” says Newsome. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.… We need black firms and black accountants to go in there and find out where the money is going.”

But another particularly striking Cullors revelation of late has gotten almost no publicity. It was flagged for me by Mike Gonzalez, author of an upcoming major new book on BLM. It’s a video by Cullors titled, “What Is Abolition And Am I An Abolitionist?” Posted on her personal YouTube channel, it needs to be widely watched.

In that video, Cullors repeatedly calls herself an “abolitionist.” She talks about her “abolitionist journey” and the “abolitionist future we deserve.” She announces that she’s writing a book titled An Abolitionist Handbook.

Cullors applies her abolitionist goals to police — and not just police but even prisons and jails. She states flatly, “Abolition is the getting rid of police, prisons and jails, surveillance, and courts.”

Yes, the abolition of police, prisons, jails, surveillance, and courts — all part of what Cullors calls the “prison industrial complex.” As many of us have noted, she emphasizes that BLM’s “defund” movement is about literal abolition. That is, not just defunding the police, but abolishing the police. Plus prisons and jails, and now surveillance and courts, too.

In the video, Cullors points to (as she often does) her mentor Angela Davis, whom she hails as a fellow abolitionist, including of prisons. Davis, of course, is America’s best-known female Marxist. In Moscow in 1979, the Soviets (in a hall of entirely white folks) awarded her their prestigious Lenin Prize. Cullors’ memoir opens with a foreword by Davis.

It’s important to pause here to understand something crucial that helps make sense of where Cullors is coming from on this “abolition” theme.

Cullors, of course, is a proud Marxist (see my American Spectator piece “The Politics of Patrisse Cullors”). She describes her “ideological frame” as that of a “trained Marxist organizer” who is “super-versed on ideological theories.” In interviews and in her memoirs, she speaks of her intensive study reading Marx, Lenin, Mao, and other leading Marxists. “We spent the year reading, anything from Marx, to Lenin, to Mao, learning all types of global critical theory,” she said in an April 2018 interview.

Those of us who have repeatedly underscored these significant facts have done so for good reason, namely that when Cullors tells us this about herself, she’s telling us something very instructive. This is her philosophy and her worldview. And utterly essential to the Marxist philosophy and worldview is the notion of abolition.

Karl Marx (and Marxism) was all about abolition. The word is omnipresent throughout his writings. As noted by Marx biographer Robert Payne, the word “abolition” seems to practically jump off every page of the Communist Manifesto. “And after he has ‘abolished’ property, family, and nations, and all existing societies, Marx shows little interest in creating a new society on the ruins of the old,” observed Payne. “The Communist Manifesto was the gauntlet he threw at the world.”

It was indeed. Go online to various writings of Marx and do a search on words like “abolish” and “abolition,” as well as “criticize” and “criticism.” You’ll be struck immediately.

The goal of the Marxist project was one of fundamental transformation, of pursuing permanent revolution and unrestrained criticism of everything — nothing less than what Karl Marx called “the ruthless criticism of all that exists.” Marx in his essay declaring religion “the opium of the people” said that “the criticism of religion is the beginning of all criticism.” In that infamous essay, he used the word “criticism” 29 times.

Marx’s ideas were utterly radical, or (as Marx openly conceded) “contrary to the nature of things.” Above all, Marx in the Manifesto acknowledged that communism seeks to “abolish the present state of things.”

Think about that one: “abolish the present state of things.” Read it again. Say it out loud. What could be more radical, more revolutionary?

For those who think that Marxism was about mere markets and wealth, chew that one over.

Marx in the Manifesto stated that communists “openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” Note these words: “forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” “All” meant “all.” He and Friedrich Engels closed the Manifesto with this: “Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.”

Quite chillingly, Marx, who wrote about the devil, had a favorite quote from the Mephistopheles (i.e., devil/demon) character in Goethe’s Faust, “Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

Again, chew that over: “Everything that exists deserves to perish.”

That is reckless and irresponsible — as reckless and irresponsible as calling for the abolition of police, prisons, jails, surveillance, and courts.

Above all, Karl Marx, like Patrisse Cullors, was an abolitionist.

Marx and Engels in the Manifesto targeted everything from property to the family to faith. “Abolition of the family!” they wrote with an exclamation. “Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the communists.” They noted that “Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality.”

God has long been a special target for these revolutionaries. To quote Marx’s socialist buddy Mikhail Bakunin from his signature book God and the State: “If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him.”

Yes, you read that right: “If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish him.”

Marx envisioned an apocalyptic revolution leading to the abolition of capitalism, classes, and the state itself. In the process, even democracy (temporary exploited) would be abolished.

Reading all of this closely, of course, was Vladimir Lenin, the totalitarian despot and mass killer that Patrisse Cullors read closely. In his most revealing work, The State and Revolution, Lenin, in his chapter “The Transition from Capitalism to Communism,” quoted Marx and Engels: “the bourgeois state does not ‘wither away,’ but is ‘abolished’ by the proletariat in the course of the revolution.”

That wasn’t the only thing that Lenin and the Bolsheviks sought to abolish. Consider Lenin’s landmark October 2, 1920, speech to the Russian Young Communist League, in which Lenin instructed the 600 assembled delegates in how to “accomplish the task of destroying the foundations of the old.” Lenin said of Marx: “He critically reshaped everything that had been created by human society, without ignoring a single detail. He reconsidered, subjected to criticism, and verified on the working-class movement everything that human thinking had created.” Everything, everything. Among them, the “old schools” would need to be abolished. “The old schools produced servants needed by the capitalists,” sniffed Lenin. “We must therefore abolish them.”

The new “aim,” Lenin told young communists, was simple: “learn communism.” He told the youth, “You have to build up a communist society,” and “every young man and woman” must proceed in that task without exception. “You must train yourselves to be communists.” As for “the old society,” said Lenin, “We had to destroy all that, and overthrow them.” This meant “overthrowing the tsar, overthrowing the capitalists, and abolishing the capitalist class.”

Abolish, abolish, abolish. Lenin, too, was an abolitionist. Communism required a constant process of abolition.

In short, the notion of abolition dominates Marxist thoughts and writings. Marxists are abolitionists. And, not surprisingly, so is Patrisse Cullors, as she tells us in this new video and upcoming book.

So, when you hear Patrisse Cullors, founder of BLM, talking about “abolishing the police” — and, more so, “getting rid of” prisons and jails and surveillance and courts—and when you hear her calling herself a trained and studied and committed Marxist, you need to understand that the Marxism is not unrelated. For those liberals who shrug off the fact that Cullors is a Marxist, well, you have a lot to learn.

And above all, most disturbing is what this says about the destructive roots of the “abolish the police” movement that Patrisse Cullors and BLM have inspired. The Marxism matters.

Denver School Board Director, a BLM Activist, Accused of Molesting 62 Children

Who is Tay Anderson? Denver school board member accused of ...

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

Denver school board director Tay Anderson, a BLM activist and possibly the youngest black elected official in Colorado, has been accused of sex crimes ranging from inappropriate touching to “violent acts of rape” by 62 youngsters, 61 of whom are here illegally and likely seemed like easy targets, and one of whom is as young as 14 years old.

Ian Miles Cheong was quick to jump on Anderson’s Twitter throat, with a copy of Anderson’s tweet where he calls for BLM riots and declares that Antifa isn’t real.

The Washington Post referred to Anderson as the “face of Denver’s protests.” The Colorado Herald posted texts from Anderson to children, many with heart emojis saying, “Let’s be friends.” There is a petition on Change.org calling for Anderson’s arrest.

Anderson tweeted his innocence over the holiday weekend but stepped down from the school board because schools and pederasts don’t mix well when the cops are sniffing around.

Anderson was already under investigation after a rape accusation by a group called Black Lives Matter 5280 and called him out in this tweet.

This accusation brings the number of victims on the list to 63, which is enough to make Bill Cosby fidgety. The Colorado Herald said, “While DPS (Denver Public Schools) continues to dodge the issue and protect its prodigal son, the continued deflection of responsibility for protecting underage students by DPS is saddening and frightening.”

“When Anderson was elected, at his first board meeting,” the Herald continued, “he said he would remain seated during the pledge of allegiance. ‘We will not stand while our country separates families and keeps kids in cages,’ Anderson said at the event.” Anderson also drew criticism last March when he accused a white man of committing a mass shooting in Colorado and the shooter turned out to be a pro-ISIS Muslim male from Syria.

Vandals Target GOP Rep’s House With ‘Antifa Markings’

On Tuesday morning, Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) woke up to find her house vandalized with pro-union graffiti, messages attacking her faith, and an anarchist symbol often associated with antifa.

“I woke up this morning to my house being vandalized last night. You can see they spray-painted in black, ‘Pass the PRO Act,'” Mace said in a YouTube video recounting the vandalism.

The vandals also appeared to have targeted her faith. “They also spray-painted ‘No gods, no masters, all politicians are bastards’ with antifa markings on it,” Mace added. The congresswoman is a Christian.

In a separate message on the street, the vandals spray-painted, “F**k you, Nancy!”

“What pisses me off, what makes me so angry is that this is the house that I live in with my kids, my two kids,” Mace said. She has two children with her ex-husband Curtis Jackson, whom she divorced in 2019. “My kids aren’t even safe on the front porch of their own home.”

“We can disagree politically, but vandalizing somebody else’s property is wrong and it’s illegal,” she concluded.

This vandalism took place about a week after an unknown assailant mailed a package with white powder and a death threat to Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) private home in Kentucky. “I’ll finish what your neighbor started you mother f***er,” read a message with the package. The message referred to the neighbor who cracked Paul’s ribs and gave him pneumonia.

It remains unclear if any antifa-affiliated groups have taken credit for the vandalism. Mace said the police are investigating.

Biden Statement on Anti-Semitism Fails to Mention Violent Muslim Assaults on Jews

Like so many of these hollow condemnations, antisemitic attacks seem to spring out of thin air. They occur as a result of some sort of disembodied force to which we are witness, but which we are unable to name.

“We have seen a brick thrown through the window of a Jewish-owned business in Manhattan, a swastika carved into the door of a synagogue in Salt Lake City, families threatened outside a restaurant in Los Angeles, and museums in Florida and Alaska, dedicated to celebrating Jewish life and culture and remembering the Holocaust, vandalized with anti-Jewish messages,” Biden says.

Bricks somehow fly on their own and swastikas carve themselves on doors.

People did these things. Some of them have been arrested. Certainly, the attackers in New York and LA had things in common. Most notably they were flying PLO flags.

Biden carefully avoids mentioning that.

Only one of the paragraphs in his 2-page statement even lays out what is happening, and it actually fails to mention a single violent attack.

Muslim attacks in the last few weeks put at least two people in the hospital, one with burns and the other after a severe beating.

Biden’s statement focuses on vandalism. Only one of the incidents references any of the physical attacks and instead of describing it as an attack, Biden says merely “families threatened outside a restaurant in Los Angeles”.

People weren’t just threatened. They were assaulted. It’s on the damn video.

Biden makes no mention of any of the violent physical attacks on Jews in New York City but finds it much more important to mention swastika vandalisms by white supremacists in Alaska and Utah. Those are legitimate issues, but when people are being violently assaulted and put in the hospital by Muslim thugs, focusing on vandalism is a clear distraction from a subject Biden doesn’t want to address.

 

BLM Co-founder Patrisse Cullors Resigns

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors is leaving after nearly six years in the top spot but insists her departure has nothing to do with the recent controversy over her real-estate purchases.

On Thursday, BLMGNF announced a “leadership transition,” saying Cullors leaves the organization in a strong position to support grassroots, art/culture work, and policy work that invests in the future of black lives. During her tenure, Cullors helped the organization reach several milestones, it is noted, such as advocating for “a future that is divested from police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms and replaces it with greater investment in justice and culture programs,” as well as “emphasizing creativity and joy in Black communities by supporting and showcasing Black artists and cultural influencers,” and financially supporting families of “victims” of “police violence,” and donating millions of dollars to black-led organizations and black families struggling during the pandemic, “especially organizers, those affected by police violence or who are LGBTQIA.”

“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors said. “It feels like the time is right.”

BLMGNF also confirmed an appointment of two senior executives to replace Cullors. “As a strong advocate for the transformation of Black lives and the end of white supremacy, I’m eager to continue the foundation’s great work over the coming months,” said one of them, Monifa Bandele.

Earlier this year, property records showed that Cullors had purchased four homes worth $3.2 million combined, including a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, a wealthy area of Los Angeles where only 1.4 percent of the population is black.

When the ritzy real estate purchases of the self-described “Marxist” Cullors became public, she defended herself, saying there is no contradiction between her socialist ideals and her getting wealthy. The way that I live my life is in direct support to black people, including my black family members,” Cullors insisted during a CNN interview.

Cullors also sent out a stream of defensive Instagram posts, insisting she did not receive a salary or benefits from BLMGNF — while mentioning nothing about her handsome remuneration for her work as one of the figureheads of the BLM movement, the healthy paychecks she has received from book and TV deals, or the speaking fees she has pocketed over the last few years. She did not attempt to deny any of the allegations regarding her profligate spending, acknowledging she had “definitely made mistakes” without explaining what those mistakes were.

Cullors insisted her splashy spending was normal for “so many black folks who are able to invest in themselves and their community,” pointing out that “they choose to invest [their earnings] in their family and that’s what I’ve chosen to do.”

Cullors claimed her departure has been in the works for some time and has nothing to do with the controversy over her recent home purchases, for which she has been widely criticized.

“Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me,” she said.

Left unaddressed was the criticism from BLM chapters around the United States, which have been complaining since December that even though the foundation’s funds had skyrocketed in 2020 and reached $90 million, only crumbs were doled out to the grassroots rank-and-file. 

In an open letter, 10 BLM chapters aired a range of grievances over the leadership’s lack of transparency and the exclusion of local chapters from input-giving processes. The statement, released by Politico, noted:

We became chapters of Black Lives Matter as radical Black organizers embracing a collective vision for Black people engaging in the protracted struggle for our lives against police terrorism. With a willingness to do hard work that would put us at risk, we expected that the central organizational entity, most recently referred to as the Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLMGN) Foundation, would support us chapters in our efforts to build communally. Since the establishment of BLMGN, our chapters have consistently raised concerns about financial transparency, decision making, and accountability.

Chapters also voiced their dissatisfaction with Cullors becoming BLMGN’s executive director “against the will of most chapters and without their knowledge.”

The 10 chapters encouraged BLM supporters to donate funds directly to local groups instead of the global network.

Another aspect of the BLM’s internal dissatisfaction with Cullors lies within her exploitation of black families’ real struggles.

“That is the most tragic aspect,” said the Reverend T. Sheri Dickerson, president of an Oklahoma City BLM chapter and a representative of the #BLM10, a national group of organizers that has publicly criticized the foundation over funding and transparency.

“I know some of [the families] are feeling exploited, their pain exploited, and that’s not something that I ever want to be affiliated with,” Dickerson said.

Tamika Palmer, the mother of Breonna Taylor — who was shot by the police during the investigation into drug-dealing operations, which sparked BLM protests across the nation — called BLM a fraud.

In a since-removed Facebook post, Palmer claimed the group used “dead black people to fund and empower white Democrats.”

BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Steps Down From BLM With Four Mansions, Possibly a 5th, to Pursue a Marxist Life

“Racism” Pays

BLM co-founder, mega-millionaire Marxist, race-baiter, and mansion-collector Patrisse Cullors is stepping down from BLM amidst a financial scandal. It seems Cullors has made enough money off the bodies of dead black men. She told AP it’s time to focus on her second book and her TV deal with Warner Brothers.

Cullors says her leaving BLM has been planned for about a year and has nothing to do with the New York Post story regarding her four mansions, all in white neighborhoods, and a fifth home she is looking at in the Bahamas, in the same luxury resort as Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods. Homes there sell for from $5 million to $20 million dollars each. Fellow Marxist Bernie Sanders must be proud. 

Cullors acquired her swanky empire while stating that the housing market is “racist” and full of “white supremacists.”

Last year, as BLM protestors were burning America, Cullors bought a “custom ranch” on 3.2 acres in rural Conyers, Ga., with a private airplane hangar, replete with a large studio apartment above it, as well as the use of a 2,500-foot paved/grass community runway that can accommodate small airplanes. Not bad for a Marxist. 

Big tech did their part to protect Cullors when the New York Post, Tucker Carlson, AND other members of BLM went on the attack. Facebook blocked links to the New York Post story. Twitter locked conservative writer Jason Whitlock out of his account after he tweeted a link to a report and mocked Cullors for buying a home in an area of Topanga Canyon, Calif., outside of Malibu, with a black population of 1.4%. As expected, she labeled the aforementioned New York Post story as “racist” and full of “white supremacy.”

The attacks on Cullors aren’t just coming from the phantom right-wing, “racists” and “white supremacists” Cullors mentions every time things don’t go her way. Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, which is not affiliated with Cullors’ Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, called for “an independent investigation” to find out how and where the global BLM network spends its money.

“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” he said. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

Cullors responded to the threat with legal action and denied any association with Newsome. She also added that Newsome had no right to use the Black Lives Matter name.

Cullors’s last day of cashing in on the myth of systemic racism is set for May 28.

As Biden ‘Rebuilds’ Gaza Infrastructure, Hamas Brags It Turned Water Pipes Into Rockets

After the war comes the reconstruction.

That means pouring money into Gaza while insisting that none of the money will go to Hamas and that none of the humanitarian aid will be used for terrorist purposes. It’s just rebuilding infrastructure. Meanwhile, Hamas keeps boasting about how it turns infrastructure into terrorism.

Terrorists’ ability to turn seemingly innocent household commodities into the tools of terror has always created a challenge for peaceful states fighting terror. Fertilizer has been used to build lethal bombs and instead of using tons of cement that Israel permitted into the Gaza Strip for the building of homes, schools and factories, Hamas built 100 kilometers of terror tunnels that Israel destroyed in the recent war.

Now there is another seemingly innocuous construction material that has joined the arsenal of terror: water pipes. There were some reports that Israel was surprised by the high number of rockets – 4,300 – that Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists had in their arsenals to launch against civilians in Israeli cities in the recent 11-day Gaza war. Now the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad has explained this: He bragged that the “resistance engineers” have turned “water pipes… into the rockets that you see.”

Time to rebuild that “infrastructure.”

The United Nations said it had released $22.5 million, which would go towards rebuilding damaged water and electricity infrastructure and disposing of explosive ordnance.

The ordnance can go into the infrastructure. That’s how it works.

President Joe Biden told a White House briefing on Friday that a two-state solution was the only answer to resolving the deep-rooted conflict.

“I’m praying this cease-fire will hold,” he said, before pledging U.S. support to help rebuild Gaza, which is governed by the terrorist group Hamas

It’ll hold until enough of Gaza is “rebuilt” for Hamas to rebuild more rockets.
