Your definition of “peaceful” is shameful!   

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell says ‘mostly peaceful’ protests caused $1B to $2B in damage from looting and arson.”

That’s a pretty general statement, and as we will learn, that only reflects damages over a two-week period, not for all “protests” in total.

‘“Peaceful protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ media analyst Nicholas Fondacaro says.”

“Many members of the mainstream media have made sure to paint nationwide protests as ‘peaceful’ in recent months– and ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Norah O’Donnell demonstrated how far they’re willing to go on Wednesday night.”

Let’s stop and think about this for minute.

Is that really the job of the mainstream media and “CBS Evening News” in this particular instance, to “paint” events which are happening in our country or around the world?

Aren’t “news organizations” supposed to report what’s happening and let the public decide what to think about it?

“Axios [Axios is an American news website, founded in 2016, and launched the following year by former Politico team members.] reported earlier in the day that damage caused by ‘riots and civil disorders’ from May 26 through June 8 would cost insurance companies between $1-2 billion.”

‘“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,’ Axios reported.”

Please note that it still hasn’t been determined that the officers were responsible for George Floyd’s death.

“When O’Donnell reported the overwhelming figure, she made sure to insist the protests were mostly peaceful.”

“Overwhelming figure?”

The real “overwhelming figure” would be the figure that takes into account ALL of the “protesting,” rioting, looting, burning, and vandalizing which has occurred over the past four months.

I would conservatively, no pun intended, estimate those damages to be in the tens of billions of dollars…, which taxpayers and people with insurance will end up paying for, I’m sure.

‘“The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King,’ O’Donnell told viewers.”

In truth, the “protests” were mostly NOT peaceful.

“Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out that NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ and ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ didn’t bother to report the alarming statistic. While O’Donnell at least informed viewers of the damage, Fondacaro doesn’t understand why she needed to add the disclaimer.”

Has the Media Research Center mentioned that the mainstream media has failed to report much, if any, of the violence tied to the “protests” of the last four months?

It’s not really surprising then that most of the media failed to point out these “alarming statistics,” is it?

That answer would be a big, “no.”

‘“Earth to the liberal media, ‘peaceful’ protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ Fondacaro wrote.”

What death, destruction and shattered lives are you talking about?  Don’t you realize, Mr. Fondacaro, that if the liberal propaganda fake news media doesn’t report something it didn’t really happen?

“Insurance Information Institute (or Triple-I) compiles information from a company called Property Claim Services (PCS), which has tracked insurance claims related to civil disorder since 1950, and other databases. It provided reports to Axios that the damage from unrest between May 26 and June 8 will be the most expensive in the nation’s history, surmounting the Rodney King riots of 1992 in Los Angeles.”

“The price tag could be as much as $2 billion and possibly more, according to Triple I. But the protests related to Floyd differ from others the database has tracked – never before have they been so widespread.”

‘“It’s not just happening in one city or state – it’s all over the country,’ Loretta L. Worters of the Triple-I told Axios. ‘And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.’”

That’s a real good guess there, Ms. Worters.

I guess Captain Obvious could be a woman, although I never really thought about it before!

“The last time PCS compiled insurance losses for a ‘civil disorder event’ was 2015, when riots erupted in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died from a neck injury in police custody. But those riots did not even accrue $25 million in damages.”

Not even $25 million?

Well that’s hardly even worth mentioning then!

Ya know, I’ve seen that rich liberals and Biden staffers, encouraged by Kamala Harris, are raising a lot of money to bail some of these violent “protesters” out of jail. Quite a few in fact.

I keep reading about some of these scared companies donating millions and millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization too.

Maybe the bail-out fund, the Black Lives Matter organization, and the rest of their corporate friends can help pay for some of the damage their friends have caused?

Just sayin’.

Do you think police lives don’t matter?

Hopefully you’re not one of these pathetic, conscienceless, neo-fascists.

But, who do we have to blame for remaining silent about this abhorrent behavior?

Who do we have to blame for encouraging these brutal executions of innocent men and women, moms and dads, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, who are just out there doing their jobs and hoping to get home alive after their shift?

I’ve heard the agitators, paid and otherwise, cry for the death of all cops.

I’ve heard the racial parasites from BLM, the NAACP, the ACLU, and more, call for revenge against the police.

And I’ve heard the passive and silent liberal leaders and democrat politicians thusly condoning these actions.

These are the co-conspirators in the deaths and injuries to many of our law enforcement officers.

And make no mistake about it…, these are “hate crimes,” based solely on an individual wearing a police uniform.

If they’re white, all the better, but that’s not a definite prerequisite.

Let’s take a look at one of the big, bad, racist cops who was deemed worthy to be executed recently.

Her name is Claudia Apolinar.

Claudia Apolinar is smiling here for a photo with LASD Sheriff Alex Villanueva at her July 2019 graduation (Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Facebook).

She is a single mom who was a librarian before joining the police force only 14 months ago.

“According to Stephanie Pagones of Fox News, “One of the sheriff’s deputies ambushed Saturday night by a brazen gunman previously worked as a librarian before she applied to join the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department three years ago, according to a report.”

Describing this person as a “brazen gunman” seems too complimentary to me. I would use the words, cowardly, sub-human, and disgusting.

“Claudia Apolinar, who is being guarded by fellow members of the sheriff’s department while she and her partner – a 24-year-old deputy – continue to recover, worked as an aide in a Los Angeles Country library starting in 2011. In 2017, she applied to be a sheriff’s deputy, the Daily Mail reported.”

“Apolinar, who is a 31-year-old mother to a 6-year-old boy, and her partner were ambushed Saturday night while sitting in their car at a metro center in Compton. They were rushed to the hospital in serious condition.”

These cops weren’t harassing anybody.  They weren’t displaying any racist or socially unjust behavior.

They were just sitting there in their car.

For all we know, these two officers may be shining examples of what law enforcement officers should aspire to be.

But they were just randomly selected to be terminated…, just because they were cops.

“Moments after the shooting, the passenger door opens and a deputy stumbles out, hand on head, according to the newspaper. The driver-side door opens soon after.”

“Apolinar was struck multiple times in her face and torso but tended to her partner, who was also wounded after they were able to climb out of the police car.”

“In dispatch audio from the moments following the shooting, a weak-sounding voice can be heard saying: ‘998 Compton Pax,’ which is the code to signify a deputy-involved shooting, according to the Mail. When the dispatcher asks if it just happened, the barely-there voice reportedly responds: ‘Compton Pax, deputies down. Compton Pax 998.’”

“A reporter from local affiliate FOX LA shared a graphic image that shows the bloodied female deputy peering out from behind a pillar in the aftermath of the shooting.”

“Both deputies underwent surgery after the shooting Saturday evening and were expected to recover, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Sunday.”

To tell you the truth, I’m sick and tired of hearing about cops being shot, and seriously injured, or killed.

It’s way past the time that justice needs to be impressed upon these punks.

The cops are being forced to do their jobs with one, or even both, hands tied behind their backs.

It’s time we insist their hands be untied.

It may also be time to install bullet proof glass into these squad cars.

Just sayin’.

ANTIFA and BLM are sooo brave!

Yes, my friends, these two domestic terrorist groups, and anyone else who hides their ugly behavior behind their “right to protest” and “social injustice,” seem to display their true colors on a daily basis…, and their true color is yellow!

For the sake of this article, I’ll just refer to these lowlifes as “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

achicks 3

achicks 9

achicks 14

If you’ve been following the news, you can see a definite pattern to the attacks by these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists.”

What you’ll notice is they typically never attack anyone who could pose them any threat at all.

achicks 15

They either attack inanimate objects, like buildings, stores, businesses and statues, or they attack old men, old women, young girls, boys, or anyone when they outnumber the person by at least five to one.

achicks 1

achicks 4

Like I said, these “anti-American neo-fascists and cowardly opportunists” are sooo brave.

Below are some actual recent headlines from the news that demonstrate what I’m talking about:

“GRAPHIC VIDEO: 71-year-old man reportedly suffers broken jaw, blow to head as he defends Kenosha business.”

“Girlfriend of Portland man attacked: ‘They were trying to fight people.’”

“Woman Attacked at Philadelphia Church During Live-Streamed Mass.”

“92-year-old woman randomly attacked in Gramercy Park, Manhattan.”

“Elderly woman attacked, set on fire in Brooklyn.”

“Retired NYPD sergeant attacked in Garment District beatdown caught on video.”

“Chicago violence: Chilling video shows woman, 85, slammed during robbery.”

“Man attacked by group of 5 people near State Street, left with facial fractures, police say.”

“Aggressive mob of white BLM protesters threaten and film white diners at DC restaurants and DEMAND they raise their fist and show solidarity with them…. or else.”

“Oakland rioters torch courthouse, smash windows as unrest continues.”

“Crowds tear down statues outside Wisconsin State Capitol, attack state senator.”

“Minneapolis stores looted as mayhem erupts after gunman’s suicide.”

See what I mean?

How long do you think this type of behavior will be allowed to go on, unchecked, as the police choose to sit on their hands, and the city prosecutor’s office is just a revolving door for these criminals when they do happen to be apprehended?

I guess we’ll see, won’t we?

achicks 8

Oh, here’s another headline I wanted to share:

“Kenosha: teen charged with murder after two Black Lives Matter protesters killed.”

And so it begins.

achicks 6

Before this chaos across our country is resolved, you’ll be seeing some good people doing some bad things to bad people.

When a vacuum is created in our society regarding law and order, that vacuum will be filled, one way or the other.

The Portland Police are giving up on policing the “far-right???”

Policing the “far-right?”

How about policing the “far-left?!!!”

The last time I checked, Portland was into their 70th or 80th or whatever ridiculous number of straight nights of violence, burning, and looting, courtesy of the neo-fascist, radical, left-wing, rioters.

But, they’re giving up on policing the far-right?

How about even beginning to police the far-left?!

According to Andy Campbell for HuffPost [HuffPost is a liberal American news website], “The Portland Police Bureau [PPB] appears to have all but given up on policing the far-right factions brawling in the Oregon city’s streets, despite a recent escalation in violence that has seen those extremists throw explosives, brandish guns and in one case fire them at other protesters.”

apolice 1

“It’s common to see far-right extremist groups like the ‘Proud Boys’ exchanging blows with counter-protesters in Portland. They’ve been doing that for years, often as PPB officers watched until a riot was officially declared and then police cleared the streets using tear gas and other munitions.”

I must admit, I was not aware of these confrontations between the left and the right groups amid the rioting in Portland.

For some reason, it was a well-kept secret by the media.

And this is the first I’ve heard of “the proud boys” as well.

“But over the weekend, police took an entirely hands-off approach to the fighting, even as the demonstrations grew more violent than ever.”

Excuse me, but, you’re saying the Portland police taking a “hands-off approach” with the violence is news?

Just sayin’.

“As officers stood by on Saturday, the ‘Proud Boys’ and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters using paintball guns, mace, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to The Washington Post.”

The term “anti-fascist protesters,” which is used here, is a complete misnomer.

These radical, left-wing, agitators, are neither “anti-fascists” nor
protesters.”

They are neo-fascist terrorists.

And, oh, the poor, poor protesters!

They were being intimidated!!!

Can you imagine?!

The nerve of those ruthless “proud boys!”

apolice 6

Now, getting back to the “far-right” groups, as the HuffPost describes them, “One of them — notorious ‘Proud Boys’ organizer Alan Swinney — was seen pointing a gun at protesters, his finger on the trigger. Another ‘Proud Boy,’ Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, was present, per the Post, in apparent violation of his parole over an attack at a similar demonstration in 2017 (he wasn’t apprehended on Saturday, but a judge on Monday issued a warrant for his arrest).”

apolice 2

Now, this is a new wrinkle to the riot reporting.

They name the members of this “proud boy” group.

I don’t recall the media naming any members of the rioting group, much less attaching a name to the rioting group in general.

It’s obviously a preconceived propaganda strategy of the fake news.

apolice 3

“Meanwhile, over a loudspeaker, police encouraged those present to ‘self-monitor for criminal activity.’ In essence, the PPB had thrown up its hands.”

“Self-monitor?!

Ha!!!

That’s a good one I haven’t heard before!

“In a statement to The Washington Post, the bureau said that officers were tired from responding to ongoing demonstrations against racism and police brutality, which have kept Portland in the national spotlight for weeks. Officers wouldn’t intervene in small skirmishes between ‘willing participants,’ even if the clashes fit the city’s definition of a riot.”

Can you blame them?

Can you blame them one little bit?

The correct answer to these questions is “no,” just in case you were wondering.

‘“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene,’ the bureau said of Saturday’s events. PPB members have been the focus of over 80 days of violent actions directed at the police, which is a major consideration for determining if police resources are necessary to interject between two groups with individuals who appear to be willingly engaging in physical confrontations for short durations.”

This is an interesting development.

Sooo, what we have here is a type of government sanctioned lawlessness.

Huh.

“Allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city isn’t a big departure for the PPB. As the ‘Proud Boys’ cheered, officers launched tear gas and other munitions at anti-fascist counter-protesters [Isn’t this a double negative?  Who are we exactly talking about here?] during a rally in 2017, which left one antifa protester with a gas canister lodged in his head.”

Ouch!

No pictures of this, of course.

And what’s this “allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city” stuff?

It would appear that the “far-right groups” are wreaking havoc on the neo-fascist terrorists, not the city.

“Police gave the ‘Proud Boys’ an escort out of the city following a rally in 2018 that saw the far-right demonstrators outnumbered by anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and ongoing relationship with the leader of ‘Proud Boys’ affiliate group ‘Patriot Prayer,’ judging from texts obtained by Willamette Week.”

Willamette who?

Is naming this person supposed to lend some kind of credence to the information?

Just sayin’.

Anyway, “But relinquishing the act of policing to the brawlers themselves is both new and concerning, especially given the context: Local extremists have escalated their violent tactics in recent weeks, brazenly introducing guns and a lot more weaponry to the melee.”

“Local right-wing protester Skylor Jernigan [Here they go naming names again.], who attended a conservative ‘flag wave’ demonstration in Portland earlier this month alongside Swinney, allegedly shot at Black Lives Matter protesters from inside a car. Nobody was hit.”

“He was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.”

This definitely seems like a case of “selective enforcement” of the law here.

“During the same event, Swinney was seen spraying protesters with chemical irritants and shooting them with rounds from a paintball gun. He faced no immediate consequence for those displays or for pointing a pistol at protesters this past Saturday.”

Nor should he, based on the prior treatment of “the protesters.”

I feel like it’s time to interject a couple applicable sayings here:

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” for example.

And, “What goes around comes around.”

Portland is a HOT mess!

Yes, folks…, Portland, Oregon.

Portland, Oregon is named after Portland, Maine. The Oregon settlement began to be populated in the 1830s, near the end of the Oregon Trail. Its water access provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the city’s early economy. The city’s economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II.  Beginning in the 1960s, Portland became noted for its growing progressive political values, earning it a reputation as a bastion of counterculture.

“Counterculture,” huh?

A counterculture is defined as “a culture whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream society, often in opposition to mainstream cultural norms.”

And, so it began.

Which brings us all the way up to 2020.

Brie Stimson of Fox News asks, “Has Antifa hijacked Portland’s police reform efforts?”

I would say the answer to that question would be “no.”

Antifa and the BLM organization didn’t “hijack” anything…, they instigated the whole thing and then took it to a whole new level…, a level which the liberal local government was more than happy to allow and support.

aport 10

“Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Thursday evening condemned the actions of rioters who attempted to set fire to a police precinct and blocked the exits while officers were inside.”

apot 16

‘“When you commit arson with an accelerent in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people who you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder,’ Wheeler said in a news conference with Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell.”

‘“Don’t think for a moment that you are if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump — because you absolutely are,’ he said. ‘You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during this campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.’”

Ya, Mayor Wheeler…, and beside committing the heinous crime of “being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” ISN’T ATTEMPTED MURDER A CRIME AS WELL???!!!

AND HOW ABOUT ARSON?!

aport 11

ISN’T ARSON A CRIME IN PORTLAND?!

HOW ABOUT HOLDING THESE PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE REAL CRIMES THEY ARE COMMITTING?!

How about that Mr. Mayor?

“A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2×4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.”

“Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.”

Again…, attempted murder.

“The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.”

“Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.”

“Unless a riot is declared?”

Is that like, “One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war?”

‘“I believe that city staff could have died last night,’ Wheeler said.”

Excuse my French…, but, “No $h#t, Mr. Mayor!”

Portland’s police have been out there with both hands tied behind their backs for over two months!

aport 13

‘“I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.’”

Oh, now you won’t tolerate it?

Hasn’t your wonderful city had violent riots in it for like SEVENTY NIGHTS IN A ROW???!!!

aport 12

Peaceful protests went out the window over two months ago.

aport 5

“Wheeler also urged peaceful protesters to avoid gatherings that could turn destructive or violent, according to Oregon Live.”

‘“If you are a nonviolent demonstrator and you don’t want to be part of intentional violence, please stay away from these areas,’ Wheeler said. ‘Our community must say that this violence is not Portland, that these actions do not reflect our values and these crimes are distracting from reform, not advancing.’”

aport 3

Ha!

That’s a good one, Mayor Wheeler.

Where you been for the last two months?

And what are you talking about with all of this “our community” stuff?

The peaceful and law-abiding businesses and people in your “community” have all been burned out, looted, and run out of town.

The rioters you’re condemning now are what’s left of “your community.”

Enjoy.

“The clashes between thousands of protesters and federal agents sent by the Trump administration to guard the federal courthouse stopped after an agreement between Democratic Gov. Kate Brown and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that called for the agents to begin drawing down their presence in Portland’s downtown on July 30.”

“Then some instigators moved on to other police buildings across the city to cause problems.”

“Wednesday night’s violence in a residential neighborhood on the east side of the city began after a group of about 100 people [I prefer to call them terrorists, or criminals] gathered in a nearby park for a rally advertised on social media by the group Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front.”

Cute.

Is that like the YMCA or something?

“[Their] slogan is, ‘No cops. No prisons. Total abolition.’”

Well, I guess not.

“The group then marched to the precinct.”

‘“Hurting people and trying to trap people in a building and burn them up, it’s just completely awful,’ Portland Fire & Rescue Lt. Damon Simmons reiterated in the news conference, according to FOX 12.”

Reeeeeeeeally?

aport 8

Thank you for that bit of insight, Lt. Simmons.

I can see you must be a real up-and-comer in the department.

“Wheeler said the city anticipates ‘additional planned attacks on public buildings’ in the coming days and said he was giving the police leeway to do what they needed to do to counter those plans as long as it can be done without threatening peaceful protesters.”

aport 9

“On Wednesday, Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said rioters aren’t forwarding the cause of racial injustice protesters. ‘Portlanders need to send a strong message that enough is enough,’ he said. ‘This movement is really powerful, but the violence has taken away from it.’”

Ya think?!

Yes, Portlanders…, we will only put up with our city being burned, looted, graffitied, and officers and other people being attacked, for seventy straight nights!

That’s our limit!

We draw the line at seventy-one nights!

If these liberals weren’t so sad, they’d be hilarious…, but no one is laughing.

Nike’s slave labor hypocrisy.

Yes…, Nike and their social justice, mouthpiece, tool, Colin Kaepernick, need to answer for their slave labor hypocrisy.

anike 7

Steven W. Mosher for The New York Post writes, “Nike should quit lecturing on social justice — and atone for using slave labor in China.”

anike 2

“The Social Justice Warriors who run Nike, for example, pompously inform us that they are fighting ‘against discrimination in communities worldwide.’ Not only that but they are ‘working every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.’”

Words, words, words.

Again, we see another shining example of liberal hypocrisy, and their “do as I say, not as I do” manifesto.

aban 14

anike 4

Remember…, in the liberal fascist world, it’s more important to say the right things than to do the right things.

Just think about it.

Nike has the nerve to “pompously” lecture to the rest of us about social justice and America’s evil slavery past, while they utilize slave labor to produce their products.

“Really, Nike? Then why do you have your shoes made by an oppressive, morally bankrupt regime? China is the ugly poster child, the living exemplar, for all of the evils that you are so quick to condemn America for.”

anike 6

America is a convenient “punching bag” for all of these “holier than thou’ types.

And, Nike can get away with this because the liberal, propagandist, mainstream media, is complicit with their behavior and it is not even reported on.

anike 13

Again…, propaganda by omission.

Serious, actual truth seeking, journalists, should be all over a story like this, but instead we find these “journalists” turning their backs on this hypocrisy.

And it’s not just a political, or a social hypocrisy…, it’s an evil genocidal type of hypocritical allowance.

“Right now, at this very moment, the Chinese Communists are eliminating the Uyghurs [/ˈwēˌɡo͝orz/], a [Muslim] Turkish-speaking people who live in China’s Far West, from the face of the earth.”

“They’ve locked up over a million Uyghur men in concentration camps, aborted and sterilized hundreds of thousands of the women, and are busy selling the young — in batches of 100, no less — to Chinese factory owners as slave labor.”

anike 14

“Secret drone footage has revealed some of the brutality of this campaign. It shows hundreds of Uyghur men, handcuffed, blindfolded and heads shaved, being herded onto a train bound for a secret camp.”

“But it’s even worse for Nike, the ‘wokest’ of ‘woke’ companies.”

It’s true…, just ask ‘em.

“It turns out that some of these Uyghurs have been slaving away making basketball shoes with the famous swoosh on them.”

“An Australian Strategic Policy Institute report published this March, ‘Uyghurs for sale,’ found Uyghur slave labor working in factories supplying 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing, shoe and automotive sectors, including Apple, GM, Gap — and Nike.”

“Nike contracts with a Qingdao company, for example, that as of January of this year had 600 Uyghurs cobbling together its shoes.”

“Yes, the same company that funds organizations asking for reparations for a practice that ended in the US in 1865 has actually used slave labor in China to make its products — and its profits — for many years.”

Tell me again WHO should be cancelled?!

anike 15

“Like Nike, the pro-sports officials, owners and athletes of the NFL and the NBA who are making big money off the China market have also turned a blind eye to the brutal oppression of minorities there, all the while making ‘woke’ noises about how racist America is.”

What we really have here is a bunch of guilty, rich (but stupid) people, who are being manipulated and used by some very smart Marxists.

anike 12

“The poster child for all of this anti-American demagoguery is NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2018 signed a multi-million-dollar contract to become a megaphone for Nike products.”

anike 5

“I wonder if the same man who kneels to protest America’s slave-owning past might one day stand for the freedom of slaves in China. It would only be fitting. It was Uyghur slaves, after all, who might have stitched his Kaepernick brand of Air Force 1 shoes together.”

Ouch.

anike 9

anike 8

“While we wait for that moment of self-awareness to strike the young [and bogus] progressive [Kaepernick], we at least have the redoubtable Josh Hawley. The Missouri senator this week tweeted Nike and the NBA to ask them to certify that their products are ‘Slave Free.’”

anike 3

“Nike has pledged to donate ‘$100 million over the next 10 years to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.’”

Ha!

Ya, they couldn’t run to the bank fast enough to through millions of dollars at The Black Lives Matter organization.

This, of course, is money they have as a result of utilizing slave labor in the first place.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

“But I have a better idea, Nike. Why don’t you take the blood money you have earned from employing slave labor in China and open a factory in the US? Choose a site in the inner city, employ minorities, and provide jobs and a way out of poverty.”

“That would go a lot further toward ensuring racial equality and social justice, not to mention hope for the future of America, than anything else you could do.”

Now there’s an excellent idea, Mr. Mosher!

Ya…, why wouldn’t you do that, Nike?

I know!

The answer begins with an “M,” ends with a “Y,” and has “O-N-E” in the middle.

That’s right!

Our old friend “money” is the answer again, just like it always is, everything else, and I mean everything else, be damned.

The NBA is confused and hypocritical, as usual.

Yes, my friends, the NBA (The “National Bewildered Airheads” league), also sometimes known as the National Basketball Aassociation, is at it, again.

The league, its commissioner, and 99.9% of its players, are now back to displaying their ignorance, stupidity, and greed, on a nightly and daily basis…, led by their own social justice czar, comrade SheBron, er, I mean comrade LeBron James. .

anba 3

Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News reports, “CNN, MSNBC avoid explosive NBA story of human rights abuses at its China training academies.”

“CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ignored the subject during interview with the NBA commissioner.”

Just another example of “propaganda by omission.”

“From human rights abuses to the treatment of Hong Kong, the NBA’s stance on China is ‘very disappointing,’ says Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.”

Not to mention “very disingenuous.”

anba 9

anba 4

“ESPN ran earlier this week an explosive story about human rights abuses that allegedly took place at the NBA’s training academies in China, but viewers of CNN and MSNBC have been kept in the dark about it.’

Yeah, like many other things as well.

ESPN apparently didn’t get the “hands-off China” memo.

anba 7

“The bombshell report alleged that the young participants in the NBA program were physically beaten by Chinese instructors and were not provided proper schooling, despite commissioner Adam Silver’s previous commitment that education would be ‘central’ to the program.”

anba 8

Oh, “Education” is central to the program alright!

The Communist Party of China is “educating” these kids real good, although their idea of “education” may not be the same as Adam Silver’s, or then again, maybe it is.

Did I mention that Adam Silver hails from Uranus?  The planet Uranus?

anba 1

Anyway, “A former league employee compared the atmosphere when he worked in Xinjiang to ‘World War II Germany,’ ESPN reported.”

That would be some kind of comparison to the Nazi fascists, I suppose.

Hey…, that just means this Communist Chinese “education” is quite similar to the “education” our college students receive here in The States!

It’s more of an indoctrination than an education.

“China wasn’t mentioned either in CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer’s lengthy interview with NBA commissioner Silver, which took place nearly two hours after ESPN published its report.”

“Instead, Blitzer spent the roughly 16-minute interview discussing the NBA’s ability to resume its season amid the coronavirus outbreak.”

“CNN is notably a TimeWarner-owned sister network of TNT, which has a major partnership with the NBA.”

And, of course, Blitzer disclosed this partnership, right?

Nope.

“Both liberal networks had also failed to address the reportedly abusive training academies on their websites, as of Thursday night.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

anba 16

“ESPN’s report detailed how the NBA training academies in China appeared to be largely under the control of the Chinese government.”

Just to let these people know…, EVERYTHING in China falls “largely under the control of the Chinese government.”

Just sayin’.

“Multiple NBA employees filed complaints about how they witnessed Chinese coaches ‘strike teenage players’ and the lack of education provided to the young participants.”

“One former coach told ESPN he watched a Chinese coach ‘fire a ball into a young player’s face at point-blank range and then ‘kick him in the gut.’”

Hmmm…, sounds like the rioters’ treatment of some of our police officers.

So, what’s the problem?

“According to ESPN, NBA officials asked current and former employees not to speak to the sports network about the exposé, with one email from a public relations official reading, ‘Please don’t mention that you have been advised by the NBA not to respond.’”

Such candor…, such transparency, such support of social justice on display here!

Ugh.

‘“You can’t have it both ways,’ one former employee told ESPN. You can’t be over here in February promoting Black History Month and be over in China, where they’re in reeducation camps, and all the people that you’re partnering with are hitting kids.’”

You sure can!

It’s in the Geneva Convention!

It says right in there that the NBA is “allowed to be as stupid and hypocritical as it deems necessary!”

anba 17

“Over the past year, the NBA’s intense relationship with China has been scrutinized after the league’s players and coaches have largely refrained from criticizing the country’s human rights violations and expressing support for Hong Kong.”

That’s because IT’S ALLLLLLLLLLLL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!

All the NBA can see is China’s 1.4 billion people shoveling money into the league and its players.

You can overlook an awful lot for billions and billions of dollars.

Just look at our own democrat party if you don’t believe me!

anba 10

“Earlier this month, criticism of the NBA’s ties to China was renewed after it was discovered that customers were prohibited from ordering custom gear that read ‘Free Hong Kong’ on its online store.”

anba 6

The nerve of these people!

“The store’s operator, Fanatics, suggested the phrase was ‘inadvertently prohibited’ and the ban was lifted. Days later though, the NBA pulled all custom gear from its online store.”

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

anba 15

Do they really think people fall for all of these lame excuses?

I guess they do…, they keep coming up with them, over, and over, and over again.

“ESPN’s prominent NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski also raised eyebrows when he sent Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., a profane response to the lawmaker’s criticism of the league’s decision of ‘pre-approved, social justice slogans’ while ‘censoring support’ for law enforcement and criticism of the Chinese Communist Party.”

anba 5

Not to mention supporting and advertising for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) anti-American, Marxist, organization.

anba 11

anba 12

As I have said before…, saying that “black lives matter,” and supporting the concept that “black lives matter,” is quite different from actually supporting (and giving money to) the organization, or group, Black Lives Matter (BLM).

Adrian Wojnarowski sounds more like an NBA defender, or proponent, here as opposed to a “reporter.”

“Wojnarowski issued an apology and was temporarily suspended by the network.”

Whatever.

Well, you know what our Chinese friends say, don’t you?

“Bèndàn, jìdé tóupiào jǐ mínzhǔdǎng rén!”

This translates to: “Remember to vote for the democrats, you idiots!”

Who’s paying to destroy America?

Lara Logan, of Fox News, says, and I also believe, that, “Paid professional anarchists are turning peaceful protests into riots.”

She believes these anti-America elements and agitators are hijacking protesters and groups, who are supposedly functioning in the name of social justice, and using them instead to carry out their Marxist agendas.

adestroy 14

They are going by the same playbook, and using the same tactics, that our government agencies and groups employ when trying to cause unrest and regime change in other foreign countries, according to Logan, who has discussed this with those very people.

The term “color revolution” is the term that has been used, in the last couple of years, to describe these techniques that are used to overthrow a government.

adestroy 4

Logan also points to graffiti she has seen recently, “ACAB,” which she has also seen in other countries.  “ACAB” stands for “all cops are bastards.”  And they mean “all cops.”  White cops, Black cops, Hispanic cops, Asian cops…, all cops, regardless of race.

adestroy 1

adestroy 2

adestroy 3

It’s not about racial injustice for these Marxists…, it’s about creating anarchy in our country and destroying America.

These riots are not just protesters venting their frustration.

Again…, these riots are being instigated by paid professionals.

The real question we should be asking is, “Who’s paying?”

Who’s paying for this destruction of America?

The really sad part about this is I believe the answer is already known.

How could “we” not at this point?

adestroy 5

adestroy 6

adestroy 13

adestroy 7

And if “we” know, why aren’t “we” holding these people accountable?

Is it for the same reason “we” don’t seem to hold any of these upper level democrats/liberals, and deep state vermin, accountable for their actions?

I guess that tells us that the democrat’s/liberal’s side, and the anti-America agitator’s side, and the people financing this anti-America activity side, ARE ONE IN THE SAME SIDE!

adestroy 10

IT’S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO STAND UP AND PICK A SIDE IN THIS FIGHT!

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA SURVIVE AS A BEACON OF FREEDOM IN THIS WORLD, OR YOU DON’T.

EITHER YOU WANT A GOVERNMENT “BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE,” OR YOU WANT TO END UP LIVING UNDER AN OPPRESSIVE COMMUNIST REGIME.  (NOTE: THERE ISN’T ANY OTHER KIND OF COMMUNIST REGIME.)

The words of Abraham Lincoln, to honor the soldiers that sacrificed their lives in order “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” were spoken at Gettysburg, but these words apply as well to the countless soldiers that died for the cause of democracy in the following 150 years.

adestroy 11

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA, AS WE KNOW IT, PERISH FROM THE EARTH, OR YOU DON’T.

PICK A SIDE.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND HERE.

“Your words cut me deeper than a knife.” – Priyanshi Singh   

It’s true that words can “cut” us as sure as a knife can…, but only if we allow them to.

And in this case, it’s my belief that some people are self-inflicting their “wounds” where there need not be any.

awords 4

Korin Miller, for Yahoo, reports that, “The growing Black Lives Matter movement has caused many people to rethink how they approach several areas of life, seeping into company policies, police reform, entertainment and education, among other things. Now many of the words and phrases that we regularly use are getting revisited in an effort for linguistic equity.”

“Linguistic equity…,” interesting.

awords 11

I suppose, in a world where words and thoughts are more important, and dangerous, than actual actions, “linguistic equity” is a real issue.

And again…, please, please, please, please, please understand that “The Black Lives Matter movement” is not really worried about black lives.  The Black Lives Matter organization is only concerned with destroying America as we know it, and implementing their Marxist/communist ideals.

awords 2

awords 1

awords 3

All of this “background noise” is being generated by the useful idiots who think the Black Lives Matter organization really cares what they’re offended by.

“Several words that are a common part of the English language are getting reassessed for having racist undertones or origins.”

“Reassessed” by who?

Is there some “panel” of people who determine what is officially racist and what is not?

awords 5

“Among some of the more explicit racist terms are ‘master bedroom,’ which can evoke the imagery of master-slave relations on plantations.”

Oh…, “it can evoke the imagery.”

How dare they evoke that kind of imagery!”

awords 20

AWORDS 11

“Tech engineers have used the words ‘master’ and ‘slave’ to describe software and hardware in which one process controls another, and a ‘blacklist’ is a term that refers to a collection of people who are excluded.”

‘“The English language is filled with these references, and many people don’t even think twice about where they came from or what they mean,’ Kristen Syrett, presidential term chair in experimental linguistics at Rutgers University, tells Yahoo Life. ‘But what happens is that the language we speak, having had those influences in it, implicitly influences the way we think about people,’ she says.”

awords 21

I beg to differ, Professor Syrett. People will only be offended by these benign references in language if they are actively looking to be offended by terms that don’t intend to offend anyone.

And you are the “chair” in “experimental linguistics?”

I hope you don’t mind me asking, “What in the hell is experimental linguistics?”

awords 16

And the department is big enough that it needs a chairperson?

Just sayin’.

“The Houston Association of Realtors announced in late June that it would be replacing the term ‘master bedroom’ with ‘primary bedroom’ in its listings.”

Bravo!  Bravisimo, Houston Association of Realtors!

What a bold and life-changing step!

awords 9

“The Court of Master Sommeliers, a prestigious organization that grants the coveted title of ‘master sommelier’ to select wine experts, announced in a letter in late June that it would stop using the term ‘Master’ before a sommelier’s last name. ‘Part of what brought us all to the hospitality industry and to the Court of Master Sommeliers is a deeply ingrained desire to serve others. That desire we know was a crucial guiding light on our journey to becoming Master Sommeliers,’ the letter reads. ‘Let us use that light now to do our part to effect the change we know is possible and necessary.’”

awords 8

Really?

Are these people really serious?

“A leader on Twitter’s engineering team shared on the platform that the company would be dropping the use of the terms ‘master,’ ‘slave’ and ‘blacklist’ from its code, noting that ‘words matter.’”

I’m not sure where these words would appear in “its [Twitter’s] code,” but, whatever.

“How did these words become such a part of our culture, anyway?”

“This doesn’t just happen around subjects of race. Patriarchy, gender and other factors of everyday life also seep into language, Syrett says. ‘We take what’s familiar to us — our culture, our society and our immediate environment — and that finds its way into language,’ she says.”

Ohhhhh reeeeeally???!!!

And rightly so!

I can see now why you’re a professor in this area.

‘“It’s a very natural thing that happens, and we might not even think of it as being connected to relationships with people, but it infiltrates our language in subtle ways.’”

‘“Over time, people forget the origins of the word or maybe never even realized they existed in the first place,’ Syrett says.”

How is it possible to be offended by these words, then…, if these people never even realized the existence of the word’s origins…, unless they are mistakenly superimposing meaning onto words that have no intentions of offending anyone.

“These words are allowed to continue to exist because they indicate a larger societal problem,’ Gabriel Torres Colon, a cultural anthropologist with research and teaching interests in race, politics, sports and intellectual history at Vanderbilt University, tells Yahoo Life. ‘The most important insight in the study of language and racism is that in order for racism to be embedded in language, linguistic terms need not be explicitly racist,’ he says. ‘This is an important point of departure because we need to be aware that when we debate the need to remove racist phrases from everyday language use, we are not necessarily addressing the entire problem of how racism is embedded in language.’”

awords 22

Thank you, Professor Colon.

I feel I am stupider now for having read that.

awords 19

“Explicitly racist words ‘always exist’ alongside ‘implicit linguistic racism,’ Torres Colon says. For example, he points out that there is a lot of attention right now on the term ‘master bedroom,’ but not as much on terms like ‘plantation shutters’ and ‘plantation’— and ‘colonial’-style homes, which he says are ‘equally as problematic.’”

No, Professor Colon, the only thing that’s “problematic” is your hyper-racial sensitivity that is seeing “racial ghosts” where there aren’t any.

“While words matter, Torres Colon says that actions carry an even greater impact.”

This guy is brilliant!

Brilliant, I tell you!

awords 17

‘“What is crystal clear is that there is no reason to believe that changing the way we speak will likely lead to measurable social change,’ he says.”

So, after all of this whining and crying, he’s now admitting that none of this will probably make any difference, socially, one way or another?

awords 18

It’s just such a typical, idiotic, liberal activist, social endeavor.

These professorial “experts” should maybe take a look in the mirror.

How about some potentially offensive terms that exist in their own world of education?

Like, Master’s degree.

Bachelor’s degree.

School Master.

Freshman, sophomore, junior, senior?  Why not just first year, second year, etc.?

Gender exclusive and discriminative fraternities and sororities.

Well…, if you’re going to go there, let’s go there.

 

From Merriam-Webster.com, let’s look at all of the possible definitions associated with the word “master.”

Master as a noun:

1a: (1): a male teacher

(2): a person holding an academic degree higher than a bachelor’s but lower than a doctor’s

also : the degree itself

b: often capitalized : a revered religious leader

d: (1): an artist, performer, or player of consummate skill

(2): a great figure of the past (as in science or art) whose work serves as a model or ideal

2a: one having authority over another : RULER, GOVERNOR

This decisive battle left him master of Europe.

b: one that conquers or masters : VICTOR, SUPERIOR

In the new challenger the champion found his master.

c: a person licensed to command a merchant ship

d: a person who is in control of something (such as a situation)

She wanted to be the master of her own fate.

e: an owner especially of an animal

They looked around for the dog’s master.

f: in historical contexts : the owner of a slave

g: an employer especially of a servant

h: (1)dialect : HUSBAND

(2): the male head of a household

3a(1)archaic : MR.

especially : a master recording (such as a magnetic tape)

 

Master as an adjective:

: being or relating to a master: such as

d: SUPERLATIVE —often used in combination

a master-liar

e: being a device or mechanism that controls the operation of another mechanism or that establishes a standard (such as a dimension or weight)

f: being or relating to a master from which duplicates are made

 

Master as a verb:

1: to become master of: OVERCOME

2a: to become skilled or proficient in the use of

master a foreign language

b: to gain a thorough understanding of

Had mastered every aspect of publishing.

3: to produce a master recording of (something, such as a musical rendition)

 

There are quite a few ways to take this word, aren’t there?

But not for these people.

For these racial “guard dogs,” focused on race and “racism” around the clock, “master” can only mean the “master” of a slave.

awords 23

awords 8

You see, it doesn’t matter what anyone’s intentions are.  The only thing that matters is their perception.

awords 10

What if some people told you they were offended by the term “Black Lives Matter?”

I mean, who’s level of being offended trumps anyone else’s?

Where does it end?

awords 6

In a truly free country, you can choose to use, or not use, whatever words you want…, but you should not be free to impose your choices on anyone else.

What in thee hell is going on here?!

According to Benjamin Fearnow of Newsweek, “About 1,000 heavily armed militia, all of whom were black, marched through Georgia’s Stone Mountain Park on Saturday, challenging white nationalist groups in the area to either come out and fight or join them in demonstrating against the government.”

ablack 9

ablack 10

https://twitter.com/i/status/1279506948334006272

Wait…, what?

“Stone Mountain State Park officials said the black militia group was peaceful, orderly and escorted by police as they called for the removal of the country’s largest Confederate monument near Atlanta.”

Ha!

Ya…, they looked “peaceful” alright!

I don’t think a thousand white guys with guns and body armor, marching anywhere, would ever be described as “peaceful” by Newsweek.

Just sayin’.

“Videos posted to social media show the group, the ‘Not F**king Around Coalition’ (NFAC), meeting at the massive nine-story quartz sculpting that depicts former Confederate president Jefferson Davis and Southern generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.”

Bwahaha!

ablack 12

The “what” coalition?!

“NFAC Founder Grand Master Jay told Newsweek via phone Sunday that the militia members at Stone Mountain on Saturday were ‘100 percent Black’ and they are not affiliated with Black Lives Matter. ‘We are a black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do,’ he said.”

ablack 13

You’ve made it pretty clear what you DON’T do.

But what is it exactly you do DO, or want to DO?

Well, not being affiliated with the Black Lives Matter organization is at least one good thing.

And, Grand Master Jay?!!!

Really?!

Is that a reference to Grand Master Flash?!

ablack 14

I’m sorry, but am I living in some sort of dream world right now?

‘“Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?’ Grand Master Jay said, referencing the massive Confederate carving.”

Confederate Monuments Stone Mountain

“He added that he must commend Stone Mountain police for offering the all-Black militia support as they exercised their constitutional rights on July 4th.”

‘“It was all black … there were no brown people, no white people… everyone was Black. I am not a protester, I am the commanding general of my militia, we were swearing in new members,’ he added, highlighting there was a second militia ‘show of force’ Saturday near Phoenix.

I’m sorry, Grand Master, but y’all looked mostly brown to light brown to me.  I didn’t see anyone who was “black.”

Just sayin’.

“The coalition of black militia met at the monument, which is historically tied to the birth of the Ku Klux Klan and has more recently been the site of white nationalist rallies. Leaders of the militia frequently halted the protest to challenge local white supremacists and far-right Second Amendment advocates to ‘stop hiding.’”

ablack 4

ablack 8

ablack 5

ablack 2

‘“I don’t see no white militia, the boogie [boogaloo] boys, the three percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the f**k you at? We’re in your house,’ one protester said into a PA system during the Stone Mountain Park march.”

Soooo, you’re looking to have a shoot out at the OK Corral or something?

ablack 7

ablack 1

I’m sorry, NFAC, but I think you’ve got some kind of “white supremacy” brain syndrome or something.

Could I suggest you may be a little delusional as well?

‘“It’s a public park, a state park. We have these protests on both sides of the issue from time to time. We respect people’s First Amendment right,’ Bankhead told WXIA-TV. ‘We understand the sensitivities of the issue here at the park … so we respect that and allow them to come in as long as it’s peaceful, which it has been.’”

“Videos shared by visitors to the park Saturday showed several militia members responding to questions from confused motorists asking: ‘Who are you guys?’ One member of the militia immediately threw the question right back at one white motorist and asked him about slavery reparations.”

ablack 17

ablack 16

‘“We want change that’s really going to permanently help us, we don’t want [any] little change, we want some real change,’ one of the organizers said, noting that many black civil rights groups have been marching for change since the 1960s and have largely been ignored.”

And you think this marching is going to somehow be different?

ablack 15

My suggestion to you is you quit crying, quit marching, quit demanding this, quit demanding that, quit running around playing “army,” and take responsibility for yourselves.  Get educated, get a job, then get a better job, and improve your lot in life on your own terms.

African Americans are being sold down the river by organizations and people who need to perpetuate racism in order to justify their own existence.  These people aren’t interested in making anything better…, they’re just interested in profiting from their old, worn out, cries of racism.

This is America.  In America people respect those who respect others and those who can make their own way in this world.

You should try it sometime…, you might like it.
