So remember, you un hyphenated Americans

You do NOT have the right to protest! You do NOT have the right to say whether or not your tax money is spent on statues to generals & politicians who made war on, and enslaved, your families! You do NOT have the right to decide exactly how much respect you must show for your nation's flag and it's anthem! You do NOT have the right to be protected and served by the police whom your taxes pay.

Those rights are for... umm... other Americans.

Right, you'll never ever be able to have an honest exchange of views with that lying weasel. 

And it is worth noting that many Drumph supporters manifest the same behaviors - BB is by no means that exceptional among the Reich. 

And as to the demonstrations, I would caution you that a substantial portion of the violence has been proven to have come from 

far Right groups, and likely some state security forces as well. 

Look up the history of "agents provocateurs" - in this case, creating violence and chaos at peaceful demonstrations 

to de-legitimate a righteous cause.

Slavery was not a genocide Mike.  Both terrible but not the same.

I've agreed with you in the past, I might again. For now, my opinion is that slavery was an attempt to both exploit and destroy a people. The expoitation of slavery doesn't change the reality that a people were destroyed in the process. Slavery was not a Holocaust, but it was a genocide. The results of that genocide are with us all to this day.

But you read that whole post and that's all you disagreed, I did okay!

Speaking of monuments with tainted histories, and what should be done about them; 

there is a sailboat on the US National Register of Historic Places that is named after one of the 

major architects of Jim Crow and the destruction of AA political rights after the Civil War. 

They are getting a big chunk of post-Michael federal dollars for a restoration - that is, our tax dollars. 

I'm wondering if I should blow the whistle on them, or STFU. 

If they changed the name, I would be fine with it - maybe the Medgar Evers ?

Sorry for two posts in a row, but at least I am not citing myself this time . .

Here is important info about the campaign to de-legitimize BLB. 

Hint - It's being done by BB's elk: the Reich that is a contemptuous of the very idea of "truth". 

One group transformed itself last month from “Reopen California” to “California Patriots Pro Law & Order,” with recent posts mocking Black Lives Matter or changing the slogan to “White Lives Matter." Members have used profane slurs to refer to Black people and protesters, calling them “animals,” “racist” and “thugs”— a direct violation of Facebook’s hate speech standards.

So the ever vigilant and ever faithful patriots showed up at Gettysburg to stop a flag burning But they were punked

Posts on social media by supposed antifa leaders urged members to meet at the Pennsylvania site on 4 July.

In response, far-right groups assembled on the historic grounds on Saturday - but no adversaries showed up.

The holiday marks the US declaration of independence from Britain in 1776.

The posts that appeared on social media ahead of the Independence Day celebrations reportedly called for people to flock to the site in face paint.

Activists would "be giving away free small flags to children to safely throw into the fire", the hoax call suggested.

"Let's get

It doesn't matter if it's a hoax or not," Christopher Blakeman, who travelled to the Gettysburg site from West Virginia on Saturday, told the Washington Post newspaper.

"They made a threat, and if we don't make our voices heard, it'll make it seem like it's OK," he added.

together and burn flags in protest of thugs and animals in blue," one anonymous Facebook post said.

So if anyone is wondering what this has to do with BLM? After seeing there was nothing there a member got a message the threat was in the cemetary and voila! There they found a pastor wearing a BLM shirt who was there to visit his ancestors.  When the cops rolled they escorted the man out for his own safety.

Absolutely disgusting behaviour, and an interesting group of names for Americans.

Seven men were arrested at an Oregon beach Saturday after they allegedly harassed a Black family during a Fourth of July event. The men were allegedly performing Nazi salutes and shouting racial slurs at the family in Lincoln City. Police said the men were “highly intoxicated” and lit illegal fireworks and challenged the officers to fight. Officers formed a barricade between the men and the family so the family could safely leave the beach. The men were charged with disorderly conduct, riot, harassment, possession of illegal fireworks, interfering with police, and offensive littering.

Quote

Gennadiy Kachankov (30), Antoliy Kachankov (28), Andrey Zaytsev (28), Oleg Saranchuk (45), Ruslan Tkachenko (22), all of Clark County Washington were charged with the following crimes: Riot, Interfering with Police, Disorderly Conduct II, Harassment, Possession of Illegal Fireworks, and Offensive Littering. Yuriy Kachankov (30) of Clark County Washington was also charged the above listed charges along with Resisting arrest.

77 shot, 14 fatally, over Fourth of July weekend in Chicago so far

https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2020/7/5/21313171/fourth-july-weekend-chicago-gun-violence-homicide-shooting

I was under the impression that black lives mattered.  I guess it's all relative.

Also, there were numerous actual "mass shootings".  Where is the media outrage and politicians demanding gun control?  Why isn't this on CNN 24/7 like other mass shootings are?  

PS - the most chilling aspect of this story is the in the headline "..... So Far".  But the good news is all those party goers and all the rest of the folk in the neighborhoods that witnessed the shootings throughout the city are lining up at the PoLEECE station to identify the shooters so they can be taken them off the streets.  Right?  Right?   

[tap tap tap]  Is this thing on?

Speaking of monuments with tainted histories, and what should be done about them; 

"Monuments with tainted histories."

Don't forget dates and paintings and the most famous date just passed and famous painting in American history, the 12-by-18-foot "Declaration of Independence." It depicts the presentation of the draft of the Declaration of Independence to Congress.

The majority of the founding fathers in that painting were slaveholders and slave-traders.

August 16 last year was the 400th Anniversary of slaving in America. Slavery began to be attacked and eliminated from before the signing of the "Declaration of Independence" 224 years ago.

Of the 47 founders those 34 red dots below were the slaveholders, George Washington the first President was one. Thomas Jefferson also one and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence shown presenting the draft to John Hancock, president of the Congress, fathered some or all of his slaves 6 children. Jefferson freed his illegitimate children, but not their mother.

13 were not slaveholders, John Adams the second President was one.

The founders in yellow are the only slaveholders who freed all the people they held. At least three men in the painting, including slaveholder Franklin, were or later became abolitionists.

Some were also slave-traders whose idea of "freedom" was themselves being "free to conduct their business" of importing people from Africa without paying taxes to King George.

An awful lot of problems in America today clearly stem from the founders’ lack of imagination...like they couldn’t imagine free speech being transmitted  electronically to everyone or they couldn't imagine rifles that didn't require reloading called assault not defend rifles.

If you want to understand America today, you have to start on the plantation 400 years ago.

Straight saluting is hardly new.

In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate Nazism, do lots of saluting and even had a bit of Jew kicking for entertainment. The victim after having his pants ripped off was arrested for indecent exposure.

Video & Background - "Night at the Garden"

Trailer

The rally coincided with George Washington's birthday. One speaker decried fake news, saying journalists were untrustworthy.

"Everything inimical to those Nations which have freed themselves of alien domination is 'News' to be played up and twisted to fan the flames of hate in the hearts of Americans."

Rascist and divisive propaganda rallies set against a George Washington backdrop are nothing new. The cunt isn't even original.

The fascist salute first in Italy in early 1920's derived from ancient Roman salute. German fascists followed the Italians and probably around time when the party changed its name from the German Workers' Party to the Socialist Workers Democrat party or Nazi party.

The Bellamy or US flag salute came about only in late 1800's and upon the above fascist use US school boards revised to avoid this similarity and finally replaced via a public law with palm on heart version after US entered WWII.

No hate crime here because it was black on white crime. 

 

If this had been 4 white guys beating a black guy they would all still be locked up with Aggregated Battery and hate crimes charges instead of out on their on recognizance with simple battery charges.

 

https://www.wjhg.com/2020/07/06/four-men-arrested-for-battery-on-panama-city-beach/?fbclid=IwAR24XemD720pHLYCQUMpPdNyludmWeve8tyaXY8Jt3zwk9IKtiQZ699zuyI

PANAMA CITY BEACH , Fla. (WJHG) - Four men were arrested for battery in Panama City Beach over the holiday weekend.

Police say they arrested Marcus Jones, Murray Horton, Tyshon Jones, and Tywann Sistrunk over the weekend after they allegedly battered a man and his wife.

According to the arrest report, the four men pushed the victim to the ground and started to kick him in the torso. While the victim was being kicked, police say his wife was punched in the face, breaking her glasses.

Marcus Jones, Murray Horton, Tyshon Jones, and Tywann Sistrunk were all charged with battery and taken to the Bay County Jail.

All four men are from Alabama.

The incident is still under investigation and more charges could be pending.

What started as a family night with fireworks quickly took a turn for the worst.

“They all started undressing but one undressed completely in front of our seven-year-old and all we did was ask him politely to step around to the other side of the vehicle,” said Vikki, a Panama City Beach resident who asked not to reveal her full name. That’s when she and her fiancé Dana said a group of Alabama men assaulted them in front of their daughter on the 4th of July.

“As two of them got him [Dana] behind the golf cart the other aggressor, the largest one out of all of them, was preventing me to get to him,” she said.

The suspects are now identified as Murray Horton, Tywann Sistrunk, Marcus Jones and Tyshon Jones. According to the police report they punched, kicked, and pushed Vikki and Dana.

“I went to call 9-1-1 and the aggressor, the larger one, he hit me in my face knocking me through the air. Our daughter was screaming the entire time not to hurt her daddy,” said Vikki.

Panama City Beach mayor Mark Sheldon said he doesn’t think this case signals a return of the so called “hundred-milers”.

“We wrote a letter to the state attorney back after Memorial Day and we asked him if any crime occurs on Panama City Beach we want it enforced to the fullest extent of the law,” Sheldon expects that to be upheld in this incident, “bad behavior creates bad behavior so we’re going to curb that bad behavior from the beginning.”

Vikki claimed a fifth man fled the scene and was never caught. She’s asking anyone with footage to come forward. “There were crowds of people out here. They did not do anything to step in and help hearing my daughter scream and I know there are people out there that have video of it,” she said.

As of now, those four men are charged with simple battery but we’re told by Police Chief Drew Whitman more charges are pending as the investigation continues.

The CA GOP definitely ran on white privilege, it's just demographics are destiny.

They haven't figured out how to let go of early-trump-ism and so remain banished. They seem to revel in owning a couple remaining "white" districts.

With me, yeah, but that’s the rub. Other people don’t have to share my opinion, and I can treat them with decency and dignity whether or not they do. Isn’t that what BLM is getting at, basic common decency and dignity? Treating people with dignity isn’t a zero sum game. It’s not a piece of pie. I don’t have to give up mine in order to allow someone else theirs. In fact, the best way to lose one’s dignity and decency is to deprive someone else of theirs. Folks who do that have none of their own.

So if someone else feels strongly about it, and would feel better if those symbols were removed, what do I care? I came into this world at a time when minorities had supposedly just been given their rights, but still had to fight against people trying to hoard their pie. Before I leave it I would like to reach a point where we as a society never again have to ask whether entire groups of people matter. If that means that we have to tear down some statues oh well, I’ll just be here enjoying my pie.

I didn't say you did but for the record I do oppose Judicial watch on this. I don't believe they (or anyone else) should be allowed to paint slogans on public streets.

You salivating canine, we have beautiful places in Atlanta with "public art".  It makes us richer.  Do you need a treat?

With me, yeah, but that’s the rub. Other people don’t have to share my opinion, and I can treat them with decency and dignity whether or not they do. Isn’t that what BLM is getting at, basic common decency and dignity? Treating people with dignity isn’t a zero sum game. It’s not a piece of pie. I don’t have to give up mine in order to allow someone else theirs. In fact, the best way to lose one’s dignity and decency is to deprive someone else of theirs. Folks who do that have none of their own.

So if someone else feels strongly about it, and would feel better if those symbols were removed, what do I care? I came into this world at a time when minorities had supposedly just been given their rights, but still had to fight against people trying to hoard their pie. Before I leave it I would like to reach a point where we as a society never again have to ask whether entire groups of people matter. If that means that we have to tear down some statues oh well, I’ll just be here enjoying my pie.

Because when some goddam tree-hugger says "SAVE THE WHALES" you just -know- down deep in yore heart (bless yore heart) that what he really means is "KILL EVERY OTHER FISH IN THE OCEAN"

NYC to start painting Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower Thursday despite pushback from Trump

Quote

Citing city sources, the local station reported that the painting of the mural will begin early Thursday. The project, which aims to see a section of Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower painted with the words “Black Lives Matter,” is expected to take several days.

So do you support the practice of painting slogans on public property or not? Should Judicial watch be allowed to paint “Because No One Is Above the Law!” on a Washington street, if not why not?

We have it written on the street in front of the police department.  It's good for them to think in term of being peace officers as opposed to some sort of militant group.

We have a wall in cabbage town with graffic artists.  The Krog Street tunnel is a free for all with graffiti.  Tourists admire it.

In midtown, the cross walks have the look of that rainbow "friendly" flag.

Some private property owners have the sides of their buildings painted.

There is mural of John Lewis on Auburn Avenue.

They are whiny toddlers that want attention. It’s perfect entertainment for rubes like you. It’s a joke of a lawsuit from a joke of an organization, fit for racist joke trash like you.

Not responding is the same as rejecting it.

"Judicial Watch is demanding that they be allowed to paint their motto “Because No One is Above the Law” after the city painted, “Black Lives Matter” on a street and allowed protesters to paint, “Defund the Police” next to it.

The organization is claiming that the city needs to allow people with differing views to paint their message or it would be a violation of the First Amendment.

“We have been patient. We also have been flexible. We have stated our willingness to paint our motto at a different location if street closure is necessary and the city is unwilling to close our chosen location. All we ask is that we be afforded the same opportunity to paint our message on a DC street that has been afforded the painters on 16th Street.”
– Judicial Watch

Prior to filing the lawsuit Judicial Watch had attempted to get permission to paint their own slogan on the street, but it was denied because they were told it would interfere with road markings.

The organization then applied for a permit for a different section and they were told to apply for a public space permit. However those types of permits only allow for parades or other similar typed of events.

After trying to get permission to paint their slogan and being given the run around the organization had no choice but to file a lawsuit.

However when protesters painted, “Defund the Police” they did not need permission and the city has allowed their slogan to stay up".

No hate crime here because it was black on white crime. 

 

If this had been 4 white guys beating a black guy they would all still be locked up with Aggregated Battery and hate crimes charges instead of out on their on recognizance with simple battery charges.

That's because black folk and minorities in general are incapable of being racist.  In fact, I think Webster defines the word as a "white only" term.

the depths of your ignorance astound, when it comes to the promulgation of the supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race. Why, it’s almost like you take pride and pleasure in being a racist, being a gloating sack of white Supremacist shit, but like most of those coward you don’t have the balls to say it in the open. 

And the depths of your "white guilt" seem to be bottomless.  Let me guess.... you have an AfricanAmerican GF who dresses up in a Black Panther cosplay suit and whips you while she calls you "Cracker Boy" while you beg.  Ammiright?

I quoted directly from the lawsuit to refute your bullshit. Judicial Watch’s own clownshow filing.
 

You refused to read it, because you are a man child scare of the truth. So yes, I’ll make fun of your clown ass because it’s incapable of substantive debate. And when Republicans are in the minority I’ll love

More defamation
