Democrat State Representative Vernon Jones probably doesn’t belong in the Democrat Party – and this is a good thing, actually. No sane person, no one who loves life and respects ALL people would ever consider joining the Democrat Party or even voting for the Democrat Party.
Rep. Jones said last week “If the Democrats are looking to eradicate every thing with a “racist history”, when will my party confront and apologize for its own?
If racist relics of the past must come down, shouldn’t we start with the Democrat Party?”
And this is why some of us have come to the realization that Liberalism must be, indeed, a mental disorder. It’s irrational to hate racism and vote Democrat. You cannot be thinking straight if you hate racism and support Democrats - it's contradictory. It's irrational. Anyone who has any knowledge whatsoever of the history of the Democrat Party knows with 100% certainty that the Democrat Party IS the party of RACISM.
Just as a reminder, let me summarize quickly a little bit of the Democrat Party’s racist history. The Democrat Party was so racist in the 19th Century that we needed to found another party, one that would once and for all end the travesty that was slavery.
You see, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 with the specific objective to abolish slavery. Slavery had been a cause of friction with the racists in America and even with the King of England well before the American colonies signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776. There had been efforts to eliminate slavery for a long time both in the UK and in the colonies unsuccessfully, but by the Grace of God the signing of the Declaration of Independence paved the way to abolish slavery later on in our young Republic for this reason: “ALL men are Created equal” it reads…all men, not just white men. All men…are created equal. This phrase was included by anti-slavery patriots, who were mostly Christians, and to whom slavery was a sin against people and against God.
When the Republicans gained power in the North they abolished slavery, but the Democrat South decided to secede and formed the Confederacy. It’s the Democrats who own the Confederate Flag. It represents THEM. They chose to go to war JUST so they could keep their slaves.
It was a Republican President - President Lincoln - who led the war against the Democrat South and when they finally lost the Civil War, Republicans won gubernatorial elections in the South consistently because the Black population voted overwhelmingly for Republican candidates each and every time.
Losing power in the South was not something the Democrats were just going to take lightly and without a fight. So what did they do? They founded the KKK. After the massacre of Black people that the KKK embarked on, Blacks in the South began voting Democrat again – I suppose because being alive and poor is better than being killed by the Democrats.
Once the Democrats regained power in the South, they implemented Segregation. They defunded Public Schools and made sure to keep Black Americans segregated from white Americans.
I know what you're going to say: "that's old news! Who cares?" Well, racism runs in Democrats blood even today!
Joe Biden has a history of racism, beginning with his opposing busing to achieve desegregation in the 1970s. He also wrote the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which is responsible for the mass incarceration of black people ever since it was passed. And let’s not forget his most recent comment “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.
Also worth pointing out is the brutal Black-on-black crime that takes place daily in Chicago, a city run by Democrats since 1931! Why is this happening, if Democrats love Black people as much as they say they do? Why is it that minorities in Democrat-run cities or states never seem to make progress?
Chicago isn't the only Democrat-run city where these things are happening. My colleague wrote a couple of articles recently citing the recent shooting of black people by black people in other Democrat-run cities such as NYC, Atlanta and others. In this case, the victims are black kids.
And who can forget Hillary and Bill Clinton's best buddy and mentor, the late Senator and former KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd?. How does someone call this KKK Recruiter a mentor and run for office in the 21st Century? I don't know how, but I know who did it: Hillary Clinton.
It seems to me that everything Democrats run has this sort of racist tendencies. Why would that be?
Well, the only possible explanation is that it’s the Democrats who are racist. Show me a city or a state or any organization (Big Tech?) run by Democrats and I’ll show you a racist system!
Big Tech is another example – run by Liberals, for decades telling us they're “an equal opportunity employer” and that they have “diversity and inclusion” programs. You would think that after decades of “leadership” in this area they’d have something to show for it. But they don’t. Never mind that the only thing they need is a decisive CEO to give the instruction and minorities should be perfectly represented at all levels of the organization.
Do you know what they do to minorities in Big Tech? They SEGREGATE them. Yes, you’ve read correctly. They don't call it "segregation", of course (they have great marketing groups that wouldn't allow them to be so honest!), but they form these “minority groups” (Women’s group, Latinos group, Blacks groups, Gay and Lesbian groups and so on) and they put them in different conference rooms every so often to discuss why they don’t seem to make enough progress in their careers and “representation” at the top levels of these companies. "What the heck is wrong with us"? they're forced to ponder. But do you know what white males do in the meantime? They network and work on their next promotion.
There’s nothing wrong with these minorities. There’s everything wrong with the Democrat leaders that encourage minorities to waste their time whining and complaining (and therefore growing depressed) rather than invest it in networking and fighting for their own careers where it matters: at the top.
Racism is owned by the democrats, my friends. They own every bit of it. Not to say there aren’t Republicans who are racist. But the foundations of racism are found within the DNC. So if Black Americans want reparations, I suggest they sue the DNC.

While I wrote an article similar to this one yesterday, I am compelled to write a sort of “sequel” article to it, considering what sort of information I will be sharing here. As noted in the headline, 16 children have been shot, some of whom have been killed, amid a rise in violence following the unjust killing of George Floyd.
The Left loves to sow discord and chaos and that is exactly what we are seeing, as people see that their violence is being encouraged by the Leftist media, and so, join mobs to outright run insurgencies in many places (the Wendy’s that I talked about in the last article was a sort of CHAZ/CHOP zone) and the punitive mayors that agree with the discord and violence simply roll over and allow these dangerous terrorists to do whatever it is that they please.
Unsurprisingly, this leaves everyone in those communities entirely unsafe and at risk of death, especially considering the anti-police rhetoric and actions taken by many of the Leftists in these cities.
Let’s look at five distinct cities in which children have been shot, with some of them killed. We will look at the cities of Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington D.C. We easily could run up the numbers a bit more by looking at Chicago alone, and you would have at least 20 children shot over the past couple of months, but let’s just look at these other cities, since Chicago is usually extremely dangerous anyway (and because I don’t want to make the article too long, which adding Chicago’s list of minor fatalities would do).
In Atlanta, as I wrote yesterday, we find the killing of Secoriea Turner, who was just 8-years-old, and was shot and killed by insurgents who took over the burned-down Wendy’s. Following this horrible death, Mayor Keisha Bottoms ordered the insurgency shut down, declaring it to be “over.” “The discussions have ended,” she declared.
Won’t spend too long on this one since I already wrote an entire article on it, but the tragedy is still no less difficult to handle. Deranged animals opened fire on a car that made the wrong turn and a child’s life was lost. Whatever violence these people might accuse police of doing, it PALES in comparison to something as barbaric as this. How, then, can anyone continue to tell me that the police are the problem?
And that’s a sub-topic I will get to in a moment.
Moving on, let’s talk about New York City, and be prepared, because we have a LOT of people to go over from this city alone.
First, an unidentified 7-year-old who was wounded on June 25 after some teens began fighting. The child was not seemingly the intended target and is, thankfully, expected to survive.
Next, an 11-year-old named Treshawn. Treshawn was shot during a drive-by on June 30th while playing outside his home in Flatbush. He was not the intended target and thankfully was only injured in the leg, but there is still no excuse for this barbarism. Treshawn’s grandfather told ABC 7: “They drive fast and shoot, man, that’s all the little babies. They’re little kids, nobody big out here.”
An unidentified 14-year-old was shot in the neck and back in Queens this past Monday and is in the hospital in critical condition.
An unidentified 15-year-old was shot in the chest on June 5th in East Harlem. It’s worth noting that on this day, the city of New York saw 23 shootings, resulting in 43 victims and 9 casualties in a 9-hour time span.
An unidentified 15-year-old was shot at a graduation party in the Bronx on June 12. Thankfully, the victim was in stable condition as of the 14th of June.
This graduation party also saw another teenager, a 16-year-old, be shot and said teenager is also in stable condition.
Brandon Hendricks, a 17-year-old, was shot and killed on June 28th just days after graduating high school. The kid was reportedly attending a barbeque where he was allegedly shot by 22-year-old Najhim Luke. Hendricks was reportedly a local basketball star, intending on attending the college of St. John’s and was reportedly the unintended target of the shooting.
Community activist Kirsten John Foy said: “We have to stand and bury one of our own because of one of our own, that’s unacceptable and it’s unsustainable.”
Hendricks’ mother said: “You took away my life, you have no idea what you did to me. My son has my heart. Nobody knows how I feel, I don’t know how I feel.”
To remind you, these are just from New York City. I still have three more cities to go through and plenty of cases.
An unidentified 6-year-old was shot and killed on July 5th. Police have not revealed what exactly led up to the shooting, or even if the boy was killed by someone or if it was suicide.
An unidentified 11-year-old girl was injured by a gunman in southwest Philadelphia. Thankfully, she was treated at the scene and is in stable condition.
Angelo Walker was a 15-year-old who was shot in the head and died of his injuries at the hospital he was sent to. Walker was reportedly a high school football player, seemingly with a bright future before it was taken from him.
Rahim, a 15-year-old, was shot 17 times on June 22nd outside a store where he stopped to get some food following a game of pick-up basketball with his friends. A detail surrounding this shooting is that, ironically, Rahim was expected to participate in a career development program that aims to stop such violence. As of now, it is unclear what his current condition is, though he and a friend of his were hospitalized.
Finally, for Philadelphia, at least, an unidentified 17-year-old was shot though he is in stable condition as of last Saturday.
In Seattle, specifically near the CHAZ/CHOP zone, we have the two teenagers I talked about recently, a 16-year-old, identified as Antonio Mays Jr., who was shot and killed after driving his Jeep near, allegedly through, the barriers of the CHAZ/CHOP zone, and an unidentified 14-year-old who was also critically injured in said shooting.
Finally, in Washington D.C., we have the death of Davon McNeal, an 11-year-old who was shot and killed on the Fourth of July after a group of five males opened fire, shooting McNeal in the head, before fleeing via a vehicle, according to the police.
McNeal’s grandfather told Fox 5: “He was a good kid. I mean, his life gone. Eleven-years-old, he hadn’t lived his life yet, 11-years-old. We got to stop killing each other. Stop it. Put the guns down.”
None of these deaths or shootings had to happen. And there is no doubt about what exactly allowed for these things to happen: anti-police rhetoric and actions, specifically.
Just look at the number of kids I mentioned from NEW YORK CITY ALONE. 7 of the 16 kids, or 43%, were from New York City, where Mayor Bill Dumbassio has taken it upon himself to cripple the NYPD, cutting their budget and making it that much harder for police to do their job properly in a city that was already dangerous enough as it was.
And let’s not ignore the fact that each and every one of these cities are run by Democrats. They are lucky that I am choosing to omit Chicago, though I easily could have added that hellish city on this list as well, though the article would’ve been too long for my liking if I had.
Police are being demonized even by the very mayors that are supposed to have their backs, and not only that, they are being restrained from being able to do much of anything in these cities. And even when they do try something, even just defending themselves, they get all the crap in the world for it, as was the case with the Atlanta officer who killed Rayshard Brooks in self-defense and the Atlanta DOJ wants his head for it.
Either they are restrained by budget cuts or they have no reason to do their job properly because they would just suffer the consequences as a result. Atlanta police have no reason to serve due to their own leaders either not caring, at best, or calling for their heads at worst.
Do you want to look at case after case after case of people killing each other and still tell me that the police are not only the biggest problem, but the only problem worth discussing? That black-on-black crime is a myth and that it doesn’t happen and we shouldn’t talk about it even as we are seeing black child after black child suffer the consequences of such censorship and inaction?
What justice is there in this sort of sentiment? What justice is there in these actions? No justice, is the answer, which shouldn’t be surprising considering just what side of the political aisle is dominating these cities and the overall discussions the country is having.
Let’s discuss black trans lives and racist cops, but never the real problem of blacks killing other blacks, especially in Democrat-run hellscapes like Chicago or Compton, etc.
No real progress will ever be done if action is not taken regarding these things. Not that the Left actually cares about progress. They will literally advocate for segregation and call that “justice” and “progress.”
The Left is evil and their policies bring nothing but heart-break.

Time and time again, we are told that we must support the Black Lives Matter movement because if we don’t, then that obviously means that we are racist and don’t believe that black lives actually matter. But do black lives matter to the Black Lives Matter movement? The short answer is: no. No, they don’t.
On the night of our Independence Day celebrations, while plenty of Americans who love this country were celebrating the birth of our nation (and plenty of communists were busy living in constant vitriol, not that that’s anything new for them), a pair of parents lost their most significant treasure: their 8-year-old daughter, Secoriea Turner.
You see, over Independence Day weekend, a shooting occurred near the parking lot of the Atlanta, Georgia Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was (justifiably) killed by a police officer, perpetrated by “demonstrators” who were occupying the now-burned-down Wendy’s (CHAZ-style, sort of). The Turner family made the tragic mistake of pulling into the Wendy’s parking lot, seemingly a transgression warranting their car being shot up and their daughter being killed by armed terrorists.
The Black Lives Matter movement does not actually care about black lives, obviously, as they just took the life of an 8-year-old black girl, whom, if she had been killed by cops, they would’ve feigned outrage and demanded the officer(s) involved be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Not too surprisingly, Secoriea’s father, who appeared with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms in a press conference to address the incident, utterly decimated the BLM movement as being illegitimate and not actually caring about black lives.
“They say black lives matter. You killed your own. You killed your own this time… They killed my baby because she crossed the barrier and made a U-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”
Secoriea’s mother said: “They didn’t give us time to make a U-turn. They started shooting at my car before we could even make a U-turn. Shooting my tires out, like why?”
Even the Democrat mayor had to call out this insanity: “We’ve talk [sic] a lot about what we are demanding from our officers in our communities. We’ve protested, we’ve demonstrated, we’ve been angry, we’ve cried, we’ve demanded action. Well now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all of the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks because the reality is this – these aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.”
“You can’t blame this on a police officer, you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an eight-year-old baby in the car. We got to stop this. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force. We’ve had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks,” the mayor continued.
When even a Democrat mayor can’t defend the actions of BLM rioters, you know they went too far. Granted, all of their actions in recent time have gone too far, from rioting to looting to burning down buildings (the Wendy’s itself was burned down, as I mentioned, because of the actions of criminals), but those are all Democrat-sponsored acts of violence, so it is quite the sight to see the Democrat mayor, who sided against the officer who justifiably killed Brooks, be against this. And let’s not ignore the fact that this isn’t the only black life lost over this time.
David Dorn’s life was lost. A 16-year-old’s life in the now-former CHAZ was lost, making him one of three people who died in that place. A number of other black people have lost their lives because they were either police officers themselves, and thus were targeted, or were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, as with the case of Secoriea. On the same day as this tragic shooting, in the city of Chicago, a city whose streets run as red as the Bulls’ logo, a 7-year-old was killed in a shooting. Her crime? Visiting her grandma.
Last Tuesday, a 3-year-old girl was wounded in a shooting and a 15-year-old was shot just blocks away. A 20-month-old boy and a 10-year-old girl were killed in separate attacks last weekend and five children were fatally shot, including a 3-year-old, just last week.
Black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter. The only ones that do matter are the ones that are beneficial to their narrative. The killing of Rayshard Brooks, though it was justified, angered these people, but these are the same people who are now responsible for the death of an 8-year-old at the very least. These are the same kind of people who took the lives of David Dorn, Dave Patrick Underwood, David McAtee, Chris Beaty and Italia Marie Kelly. The same people who have dedicated themselves to tearing down and destroying the statue of FREDERICK DOUGLASS, a black abolitionist who helped countless slaves escape via the Underground Railroad.
The same people who lambast actor Terry Crews for asking for EQUALITY, that #blacklivesmatter would not be transformed into #blacklivesbetter, or black supremacy, in other words.
Black lives simply do not matter to the Black Lives Matter movement because it is a neo-Marxist movement, as admitted to by its own LEADERS. The movement itself is a communist movement under the guise of racial equality and justice. There is nothing just, racially or otherwise, about communism and the only equality to be found is equal sharing of misery. Communism renders people slaves to the state, so no one can dare tell me that this is an idea that would at all benefit the black community, or anyone who is not a part of the establishment.
The Left has NEVER cared for black lives and they only feign concern whenever the narrative is favorable to them. They see a white cop kneeling on a black man, leading said black man to die, and see not a tragedy but an opportunity. They see a cop shooting a black man armed with a taser after said taser was fired, showing the cop to be shooting in self-defense and see it not as a justified killing of a deadly threat but as an opportunity to sow discord and chaos, which obviously leads to the sort of tragedy that we began this article covering.
BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER TO THE LEFT AND NEVER HAVE. Democrats used to own slaves and fought to keep them. When they lost that fight, they sought to enact racist Jim Crow laws that ensured the freed former slaves would practically have no ability to succeed financially or otherwise. In the meantime, they sought to create a terrorist organization, called the Ku Klux Klan, to terrorize and kill political opponents, namely Republicans, and black people used to largely be Republican back then because a Republican president had freed them. Democrats also sought to eradicate the black population through eugenics, namely abortion, as admitted to by Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger.
And now, Democrats encourage black people to go out and “protest”, destroy as much as possible and be violent towards whomever they wish (so long as said Democrats are not personally affected in any way) and the Democrat fake news media will cover for them, claiming them to just be “peaceful protestors and demonstrators” literally as buildings are on fire as they utter such lies.
The Black Lives Matter movement itself is an enemy to black people, namely as they support communism, which makes slaves out of everyone, but particularly affects black people in a negative way.
This is who the Left is: a bunch of murderers with no remorse.
CNN, by the way, is covering this tragedy not as a tragedy of BLM terrorists murdering a kid, but as Secoriea being a victim of “gun violence.”
THIS, among many other reasons, is why the fake news media is the enemy of the people. The death of an 8-year-old at the hands of terrorists is covered as an opportunistic attack on gun rights. These people have absolutely no shame and their hearts are filled with nothing but the same evil that fills Satan’s.

Well, it took all of three weeks for the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) to have an incident of police brutality.
On Monday morning, CHAZ “security”, effectively the police of the zone, shot at a white Jeep repeatedly, killing a black 16-year-old and injuring a black 14-year-old in the process, supposedly due to the Jeep having driven through one of the barricades setting up the borders of the zone.
While few news sources are noting that it was the security force that perpetrated the shooting, AND Magazine makes the claim that it was CHAZ security, and security footage from the incident shows a woman shouting “Security! [unintelligible] We’re looking for a stolen Jeep. Multiple shots fired…”
Safe to say, if the woman was shouting “Security!” chances are that she is part of the CHAZ security force, as police tend to shout something similar.
As far as the reason for firing, supposedly, the people inside the vehicle had been firing at others, but seemingly no weapons had been recovered from the vehicle and the windows appeared to have been up (though the SPD reports that the crime scene aka the vehicle itself was tampered with, so it is certainly possible the kids inside the vehicle were firing, though much other evidence would have to come forward, such as what was shot and if people got hurt).
Regardless, one can’t help but look at this incident as “police brutality” perpetrated by people living in a zone that was created BECAUSE of police brutality. Counting this, there have been four shootings and, if I remember correctly, three of them led to black people being killed inside or near the CHAZ/CHOP zone.
CHAZ was illegitimately created as a response to the unjust killing of George Floyd, and in a matter of three weeks, you have what amounts to the police force in the zone going so far as to use lethal force, killing a black 16-year-old and injuring a black 14-year-old. The 16-year-old, I can assure you, won’t have his name trending on Twitter. The Left won’t be demanding people say his name. The Left won’t post a black square on Instagram in his honor. They won’t hold 738 funerals with hundreds of people risking infection to COVID-19 for this kid.
Now, the following day, on Tuesday, Seattle police forces shut down the CHAZ, following Mayor Jenny Durkam’s order, though let’s not pretend it had anything to do with the “police brutality” of the CHAZ “security” or any of the other violent crimes that occurred there in the last three weeks.
Late last week, Durkan announced she would be closing down the CHAZ by Sunday (she didn’t) supposedly due to the rampant crime going on in the zone, but it wasn’t until protesters, including communist councilwoman Kshama Sawant, showed up at her house to protest her decision.
Seemingly, as soon as the protesters began to be a threat to her, she decided to take action against them.
The Mayor’s office even had the audacity to claim in their statement that “Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk.”
The communist mayor called the CHAZ the “summer of love” and claimed that Seattle was “fine”, despite a number of people having died already and numerous families having been put at risk. Remember, not everyone who was in CHAZ was there willingly. The insurrectionists outright took over a number of blocks. Plenty of people work and live in that area and were suddenly subject to the governing authority of college-indoctrinated communists who know very well how to destroy, but not build and run things. Families and children already were put at risk just by the riots themselves, let alone the insurrection, so don’t tell me the mayor did it because a number of families with children were put at risk. Just HER OWN family was put at risk. That was the only reason she decided to act.
And while I don’t blame her for acting for this reason, and in fact commend her for acting instead of bending the knee after being personally targeted like that, don’t try and tell me she did this because she was fearing the safety of the people of Seattle. She was perfectly fine with the insurrectionists taking over a part of Seattle, the CAPITOL HILL ITSELF, so long as she and her family were left alone and were totally unaffected. She is no different from the rest of the Left’s hypocrites, such as ESPN writer Chris Palmer encouraging the riots until the rioters got a bit too close to his neighborhood and home in specific, at which point he called them “animals”, or the mayors and council people who hired private security forces while calling for the defunding of the police.
Peace and safety for them, the ruling class, but none for you, the peasant class. Only THEY get to enjoy nice, peaceful lives. If you are the victim of violence because of the riots, it’s your fault for being in the way of “peaceful protesters fighting systemic racism”. If your life and the life of your family are at risk, too bad; don’t get in the way of “progress” and “healing”.
This is the same sort of mindset of the Soviets. John F. Kennedy, just about the only half-way decent Democrat in my mind (and even that is a bit of a stretch), once said: “We cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.” Communists have the mindset that what is theirs is theirs and what is yours is either negotiable, or also theirs. This is the mindset that comments like Obama’s infamous “you didn’t build that” comment stem from.
YOUR family doesn’t matter; theirs does. YOUR children don’t matter; theirs do. YOUR black life doesn’t matter if you stand in the way of the Left, as with the case of David Dorn and a slew of other black people and police officers who died trying to do the right thing. YOUR safety doesn’t matter if it stands in the way of the Leftist agenda.
And now, we have what is basically the police of the now-former CHAZ (in Seattle, at least, as there appears to be another CHAZ being formed in NYC, as if we needed another reason never to visit that crappy city) using violent and lethal force to take the life of a young black kid away, and injuring another one.
And don’t try and argue that they might’ve had good reason for it. You know the Left never cares about the reason a cop killed a black person. Michael Brown ASSAULTED the cop that ended up shooting him but the Left still hounded the officer, despite him having fired in self-defense. The Left gave no quarter to the officer in the Michael Brown shooting, despite it being self-defense, so what reason do I have to give quarter to the CHAZ security? The Left didn’t give Officer Wilson, the cop who killed Brown, the benefit of the doubt, so why should I give the benefit of the doubt to the CHAZ security?
Playing by the Left’s rules, the CHAZ “cops” killed a black teenager for no justifiable reason at all and should get the death penalty.
But either way, it is extremely ironic that an autonomous zone that was set up in response to police brutality (at least, that’s the official story) would feature a security force that would perpetuate police brutality.
Maybe the issue is about procedure and the circumstances surrounding an event, and not about the race of the officers and the suspect.

It’s nothing new to see radical Leftists invoke the name of the Lord to defend their outright satanic beliefs. Radical Leftists often tried to use the Bible to defend the institution of slavery and to defend segregation. Radical Leftists try to use the Bible to defend the mass genocide of babies in the womb. So it’s not surprising to see a BLM communist invoke the name of the Lord to defend the destruction of the United States.
In a recent interview with Martha MacCallum, Hawk Newsome, communist leader of the Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, did exactly that in his defense of the riots.
MacCallum brought up the following quote from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and asked what Newsome thought of it: “Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout, ‘White Power!’ when nobody will shout ‘Black Power!’ but everybody will talk about God’s power and human power. Do you agree with that?”
Newsome then had the gall to say the following: “I love the Lord. And my lord and savior, Jesus Christ, is the most famous black radical revolutionary in history. He was treated just like Dr. King. He was arrested on occasion, and he was also crucified or assassinated. This is what happens to black activists, we are killed by the government.”
If he truly was a Christian, he would know not to compare Jesus with anyone, let alone “black radical revolutionaries”. Christ was NOT a black radical revolutionary.
Throughout the interview following that statement, Newsome tried to make the point repeatedly that Jesus was not white. Considering He was in the Middle East, I imagine He might not have been, but if He were white, black or whatever else, He is still the Lord and our Savior, so true Christians would still follow Him. Considering how adamant Newsome was about saying Christ wasn’t white, as though that matters, I don’t believe for one second that he would follow the Lord if He had been white.
But that just addresses the “black” part. Let’s address the “radical revolutionary” part. Jesus never set out to overthrow the government of His time and repeatedly made note of that. Jesus said in Mark 12:17: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” He didn’t call for an overthrow of Caesar (as the Pharisees believed and tried to trap Jesus into admitting as much). He didn’t call for a toppling of Rome. He made note that His Kingdom is not of this world, so He was NOT a revolutionary at all.
Next, and perhaps most importantly, Jesus was not killed by the government like a “black activist”. To insinuate Jesus was a “black activist” is a damnable insult. Jesus was killed by a BLOODTHRISTY MOB that DEMANDED His blood. Even Pontius Pilate said he found no guilt in Jesus. Luke 23:4 says: “Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, ‘I find no guilt in this man.’” Later on, it even says that Herod, who was the ruler in Jesus’ district of Galilee and also had the ability to judge Jesus, found no guilt in Jesus for what He was being charged with.
But the crowd insisted that Pilate would punish Jesus and would instead release Barabbas, who was, as verse 19 says: “a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection started in the city and for murder.” Similarly to the mob of today, the mob that called for the death of Jesus would rather have a horrible criminal and dangerous person be released than someone who is innocent.
Pilate further insisted on releasing Jesus but the crowd chanted: “Crucify, crucify him!” Soon after, Pilate relented and bent the knee to the mob, giving them what they wanted, and ordered the death of Jesus.
So Jesus was not killed by Rome. He was not killed by the government. He was killed BY THE MOB THAT DEMANDED HIS BLOOD BE SPILLED. He was killed because a government figure bent the knee to the mob.
That Newsome does not know this is not at all a surprise to me. HE ISN’T A CHRISTIAN! Christ is nowhere to be found in his heart, else he wouldn’t believe what he believes or say what he says!
Later in the interview, Newsome says that he wanted “black liberation and black sovereignty… by any means necessary.” Does that sound like something a Christian would say?
Blacks in the U.S. ARE ALREADY LIBERATED AND HAVE BEEN FOR A CENTURY AND A HALF! And of course, it’s hard to ignore the call for “black sovereignty”, which is, of course, black supremacy. The guy is no different or better from the neo-Nazis who call for white supremacy instead.
The guy demands black liberation when he claims to be a Christian. A Christian IS ALREADY FREE BECAUSE OF THE WORKS OF CHRIST AT THE CROSS! He wants black sovereignty or supremacy. That is not equality at all and shows us the type of person he is. Christ’s people will rule and judge the world alongside Him.
Revelation 20:4 says: “Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”
There is no black sovereignty. There is no white sovereignty. There is no human sovereignty. The only sovereignty that exists is strictly the Lord’s and we all have a single path to salvation.
That Newsome believes Jesus to have been equal to a black activist destroying property, setting fires, assaulting people and killing people is outright blasphemous and I hope he repents. What he said is nothing short of an insult to the Lord and a threat to this country, which he intends to destroy to bring about black supremacy.
This man is no Christian at all, and just because he professes to have faith, that does not mean he actually possesses it. It’s clear, from this single interview, that he does not speak as one who has Christ in his heart. He has hatred – Satan – in his heart.
Christ was not a “black radical revolutionary.” He was not a black activist. He was not even killed by the government. He is the Lord. He is the King. He was killed to satisfy a mob. Newsome is part of the mob we see today, making demands and threatening destruction and unruliness if the demands are not met.
Newsome speaks more like a radical terrorist than a Christian. He should look inside his own heart and be afraid of what is in there. He should repent of the blasphemous things he said and believes. But as a radical Leftist, I don’t really expect him to do such a thing.
Who knows, though? Maybe the Lord will bring wisdom onto Newsome and get him to repent. I won’t judge Newsome because it’s not my job to do so. But what he said and currently believes is damnable and I will condemn it to Hell.

Earlier this week, Black Lives Matter protesters showed up to protest defenders of a monument to former Vice President John C. Calhoun, who was an advocate for slavery in a time when it was being heavily debated and his dedication served as the ground work for the South seceding from the Union (though Calhoun specifically did not want the South to secede, ironically).
Amidst all of the chaos and vandals destroying and tearing down statues of various historical figures, from George Washington to Thomas Jefferson to Cervantes (who was, himself, a slave at one point in his life), a group of people sought to defend the monument dedicated to Calhoun from people who might target it and further seek to destroy our nation’s history.
This defense of Calhoun’s monument was discovered and BLM activists showed up to (actually) peacefully protest the defenders and the monument itself. However, at one point, a group of white people showed up pretending to be slaves, carrying signs that read: “Cracker for Sale”, “Hang that Cracker”, “What if this was your (white) history?” and “What if the roles were reversed?” Some of these white protesters even had put on make-up on their bodies that made them look like they received whip lashes.
Before I get to the funny part about this where some BLM protesters were outright ticked off, let me say the following: these white people are disgusting and dangerously misinformed (not that this is anything new).
For one, simulating being slaves is awful, no matter how you look at it. It’s outright offensive towards those who were actual slaves and who actually had scars due to whip lashes and general abuses. And you know I’m being serious because I don’t often use the word “offensive” without also mocking whomever might be “offended.” This is actually and really offensive, which is probably why BLM protestors were ticked off.
Secondly, let’s discuss the signs, particularly the “what if this was your (white) history?” That question presupposes that the people defending Calhoun are also defending slavery, which is not at all the case. No one in this country today (at least, not sane people) would defend the atrocity of slavery. Not one person who was there to defend the Calhoun monument was there to defend his beliefs.
To give you a very brief history of Calhoun, the guy served as VP to John Quincy Adams in 1824 but switched to the then-recently-formed Democratic Party in 1828 to run with Andrew Jackson against Adams (obviously, Jackson won). Throughout Calhoun’s tenure as VP and eventually as a Senator, he was a strong proponent of slavery, argued that the Constitution didn’t give Congress the power to abolish slavery (this became the basis for “State’s Rights” for the South’s secession), and asserted that the South “cannot remain here in an endless struggle in defense of our character, our property, and institutions,” and that “we must become, finally, two peoples… Abolition and the Union cannot co-exist.”
The guy himself, obviously, was not exactly the best person in the world. Slavery was never a moral thing and the guy was, himself, rather immoral for wanting to protect the institution of slavery. However, tearing down a monument dedicated to the guy does nothing towards making amends for slavery and racism. All it does is further eliminate our history, which is what the Marxists want in order to create an eternal present dominated by them.
But in any case, let’s return to the actual protesters. Like I said, BLM was livid at the liberal white people pretending to be slaves. One of the BLM protesters shouted: “Put that s*** down, sister! Don’t do that! Why are you here? Your attitude! I know you’re f***ing kidding me! I know you’re f***ing kidding me!”
It is pretty evident that the BLM protesters were not exactly fond of the behavior of the entitled white liberals parading around like slaves, supposedly in support of the Black Lives Matter protesters. Not that one ought to expect much else from such people.
This is what white guilt brings to people who subscribe to the idiocy. These white folk are so ridden with guilt over their very skin color (and no one, for some reason, is saying that such a belief is racist and you know very well that if we were talking about black people feeling guilty for being black, there would be an outcry about racism) that they think it is appropriate to showcase themselves in reversed roles to the historical reality: the white people as the slaves and the black people as the owners. How you come to believe this is in any way okay is beyond me, but this is the sentiment brought about by white guilt.
White guilt gets white people to outright feel bad for being white. It gets them to believe they are at any capacity responsible for the atrocities of DEMOCRATS in the past and that simply being white, not even necessarily being related to slave owners, but just being a white person, is enough to condemn someone of past racism.
Do you know who else acts like this? Who else brings up people’s past and puts feelings of guilt and shame in their hearts? Who else makes people believe that any sort of atonement is insufficient and that forgiveness cannot really be achieved? Satan. Only these people are condemning an entire race for what few members of it did in the past.
I’ve already used this example before, but saying that white people today bear the responsibility of slavery from the past is the same as saying that the son of a serial killer bears the responsibility of their serial killer father and ought to be punished for that link. It’s not just in the least.
Slavery is a thing of the past. Not one black person today (in the U.S. at least, since many countries in the Middle East allow for slavery and Libya has open slave markets, but no one is talking about that slavery) has been a slave. Not one black person was owned by another person today. Not one black person today was forced to pick cotton or other plants. And not one white person today has owned a slave. To blame today’s white people in general for the sins of DEMOCRATS in the past is not just. And if you want to blame anyone, blame the actual DEMOCRATS who were a part of it. Blame the Democrat Party which fought for slavery, was split on segregation (and Joe Biden’s best friends were segregationists) and even today is entirely focused on race, only playing things a little bit differently.
Not that I expect white liberals to really be able to understand why this is all so insane. White guilt poisons the mind.

Among the many talking points raised following the unjust killing of George Floyd are the ideas of banning police from being able to use chokeholds to subdue suspects (there are pros and cons to that), issuing “reparations” (communist redistribution of wealth) to black people for the fact this country used to have slaves (forgetting entirely that slavery has been used by most other nations for millennia) and that we should rename military bases that are named after Confederate officers.
However, only doing one of those things has been found to be favored by a majority of people and that is banning police use of chokeholds to subdue suspects.
According to a recent ABC/Ipsos poll released on Juneteenth (the day that slavery was abolished by the Republican Union), 63% of Americans support “banning the use of chokeholds by police officers.” Even a majority of Republicans, 51%, support such a ban (President Trump has also demonstrated his support for such a ban). 71% of African Americans, 63% of whites and 56% of Hispanics also support banning chokeholds.
Like I said earlier, this issue has its pros and cons. Generally, I want to allow for officers to safely and non-lethally be able to subdue someone who is resisting arrest (and chokeholds are usually used for people who resist arrest) but the George Floyd killing demonstrates that it is not without its flaws. Further evidence regarding his killing does show that he was sort of resisting arrest at times, so there was a legitimate reason for him to have been subdued, but there were also times when he safely could have been put into a police car and Officer Chauvin refused to do that, opting to keep his knee on the back of his neck (which is not really a chokehold, per se, but still).
I generally believe that most cops are not out to cause harm to individuals they are seeking to arrest, so banning the use of chokeholds, while it can definitely prevent the choking death of a suspect, can also tie up an officer’s hands in dealing with an unruly suspect. There are plenty of times when using a chokehold is the best method (and there are no completely non-lethal ways to deal with resisting suspects other than just letting them go, which is not a good option), so banning chokeholds, in my opinion, can lead to more crime and even more officer deaths.
I am still of the mind that eliminating police unions, or at the very least making it so that bad officers cannot be protected by the unions for their very clearly bad behavior (again, Chauvin received 17 complaints before he killed Floyd and nothing was done to him), is the best course of action, so other methods that can hinder an officer’s ability to do his or her job is not something I would generally support. Hold the individually bad officers accountable for their individual actions – don’t punish every officer for the misdeeds of the few.
In any case, moving on to the second line item, there is the idea of changing the names of military bases. A majority (56%) opposes changing the names of military bases named after Confederate leaders and officers. Independents, who ABC notes as generally being split with regards to removing statues (and I’ll get to this in a brief moment), oppose renaming military bases 59-40. 67% of African Americans are also opposed to renaming bases.
When it comes to this one, I firmly stand with the idea that we should NOT rename the bases named after Confederate leaders. This isn’t because I’m a racist Confederate; far from it. It’s precisely because I know the history of this country that I don’t want to rename these bases. These bases, and the statues, represent the history not simply of this country, but of the Democrat Party. The reason the Democrats are so in favor of renaming military bases (and other things like schools and government buildings) named after Confederates is because the Confederates were THE DEMOCRATS.
Consider, for example, the paintings that Nancy Pelosi has decided to remove from the Capitol. She removed the paintings of four Confederate leaders who were also Democrats. Leftists also support the toppling of statues that remind them of their past and history and serve as a reminder to everyone of what they are.
Of course, the reason for Marxists to be in favor of removing statues (of everyone, whether they were pro- or anti-slavery) is to erase the history of this country completely and essentially make it anew under their rule. Can’t remind people of their history if you want there to be no history – only the eternal present.
But at least one reason for Democrats to support removing statues and renaming Confederate bases/buildings is to erase the history of the Democrat Party itself. They are already trying to rewrite history by saying there was a “switch” after the Civil War where the Republicans became the racists and the Democrats became not racist, which is a load of crap.
Alas, I digress. Moving on to the final aspect of this poll was the feelings of people regarding “reparations” for ancestors of slaves. 73% of Americans oppose the federal government giving “money to black Americans whose ancestors were slaves as compensations for that slavery.”
54% of Democrats support “reparations” while 94% of Republicans and 82% of Independents oppose it.
This is actually not very different from how general sentiment surrounding this topic has been over the past 20 years. An ABC poll asking this question back in 1997 found only 19% of Americans supported this, with 77% disagreeing. While 73% oppose it today, only 14% support it, so both opposition and support went down, indicating an increase of the number of people who simply do not know which way to think about this.
Of course, where I stand on this is opposition… for the most part. If black people want reparations, don’t demand that the government give it to them, or that white people overall give it to them, because not one white person today owned a slave and they cannot be held accountable for the actions of their ancestors. This would be like sending the son of a serial killer to jail just because he is the son of a serial killer, even if he did nothing illegal.
There are roughly six problems with these “reparations” that just revolve around the issue of race:
The entire issue of “reparations” is, at its core, nothing more than redistribution of wealth from wealthy white people (or just white people, including the poor ones) to black people who were never forced to pick cotton a day in their lives. But if “reparations” are demanded in the States, the people who should pay them are those who make up the modern Democrat Party, since they are the ones who have historically fought to keep slaves.
I am adamantly against “reparations” because I know it’s nothing but an excuse to unfairly and unjustly redistribute wealth (though the rich white liberals who support it ought to be made to put their money where their mouth is and forced to pay these “reparations” they demand other white people pay). But if an argument is to be made about “reparations” is that Democrats should be the ones to pay them.
Nevertheless, overall, it doesn’t seem as though the political needle has moved all that much, if at all, in the Left’s favor with regard to these particular issues, maybe with the exception of chokeholds.
This, I say, to remind you that they are not the majority in this country. Not even close.

Amid the wave of insane demands by the Leftist mob, such as calls for the defunding/abolition of police departments, the “social justice” mob is now after black people who appear on famous brands, such as Aunt Jemima’s pancake mix and syrup, and Uncle Ben’s rice. In an apparent effort of fighting racism, the Left is trying to do away with black characters on brands. Yes, they are just that stupid.
But with this stupidity comes the actual danger that it poses: they are eliminating not only part of this country’s history, as they were/are doing with the statues of various historical figures - from both people who were pro- and anti-slavery showing that either A) these protesters just want chaos regardless of politics or B) they don’t actually know any history or C) a bit of both - but they are also eliminating the legacy and memory of someone who honestly ought to be considered a role model for black people (and anyone, really, but particularly for black people).
As you could probably tell, I will talk about the story of the first “Aunt Jemima” and why she is an inspiration for everyone, particularly for black people.
The woman who would be recognized as “Aunt Jemima” was a black woman named Nancy Green. She used to be a slave, born in 1834, and eventually became “Aunt Jemima” when in 1890, the R.T. Davis Milling Company bought the formula of a ready-mixed, self-rising pancake flour and sought a black woman to become a living trademark for the product. Davis found Nancy Green in Chicago and employed her to be said living trademark.
Nancy Green, at the time, was a cook for a family in Chicago, and helped raise the children of said family (African-Americans often were hired, after the abolition of slavery, by wealthy families to help raise the children, cook and overall be basically maids/butlers in the house).
Three years after she was first hired, the Davis Milling Company began “an all-out promotion of ‘Aunt Jemima’ at the World’s Colombian Exposition in Chicago,” according to the African American Registry. Green demonstrated the pancake mix and made and served thousands of pancakes. “Green was a hit, friendly, a good storyteller, and a good cook. Her warm and appealing personality made her the ideal ‘Aunt Jemima,’ a living trademark. Her exhibition booth drew so many people that special policemen were assigned to keep the crowds moving. The Davis Milling Company received over 50,000 orders, and Fair officials awarded Nancy Green a medal and certificate for her showmanship.”
Green was signed to a lifetime contract to continue promoting the brand and be its face as “Aunt Jemima” (the name, by the way, was taken as “inspiration” by a vaudeville show where Chris Rutt, one of the people who made the formula and sold it to the Davis Milling Company, heard a song called “Aunt Jemima” sung by black singer Billy Kersands).
Unsurprisingly, this made Nancy Green very rich, making millions (for the time) and helping to organize a number of charities and programs from organizing the Olivet Baptist Church and “[h]er career allowed her the financial freedom to become an activist and engage in antipoverty programs,” according to Rush Limbaugh.
She was a missionary and an advocate against poverty and for equal rights. She helped many people in many ways.
Nancy Green was one of the many people who embody the American Dream. Making something of yourself out of nothing is the American Dream. This country is the only one where you can really start with nothing but the clothes on your back, and given the right amount of hard work, dedication, focus and savvy, you can make it far (kowtowing to the Left and being a particularly loud voice also helps, unfortunately).
Nancy Green was literally born a slave and she went on to make millions and be very wealthy for her time. She went from being considered property to owning property and having the financial freedom and muscle to help with causes she saw as valuable and important.
Now, I know what some might try and argue: “Wasn’t she given the opportunity to be rich by some white dude who wanted to use her as a living trademark? Isn’t that a bad thing for black people to view in a role model, needing the help of a white person to succeed?” To which I say a few things.
First of all, it’s not like Green was just given all her money. She had to work for it. She had to use her natural charisma, yes, but it’s not like success simply fell on her lap. She was given an opportunity by the owner of a company, but being given an opportunity, in and of itself, isn’t enough to get one to succeed. If I were given the opportunity to play for the Miami Heat, that doesn’t mean that I will become a superstar player and become extremely wealthy. I would need the right skill set and the dedication to work hard to succeed. That is the case for just about everything, including Nancy Green’s story.
Secondly, realize my earlier point that making something of yourself out of nothing is the American Dream. Nancy Green isn’t the only person to have done this. She’s not even the only black person to have done this. People like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Rush Limbaugh, Howard Schultz, Ben Carson, Oprah Winfrey, even George Soros, despite not necessarily liking the vast majority of these people, all embody the American Dream (regardless of whether they love or hate this country).
They all started with little to nothing and worked their way up to make something of themselves. Nancy Green is no different and someone who ought to be considered a role model for black people – a reminder that, even coming from what is considered the lowest possible place in the social totem pole, you can become a massive success in many different ways.
You see, something I have mentioned in the past is that African-Americans are being essentially “trained” by the Left to believe that their skin color will systematically predispose them to be discriminated against, racially profiled against and overall mistreated by others who do not look like them or think like them. They are taught, from a very young age, to live with a chip on their shoulder, believing the world, and this country in specific, to be automatically against them and there is little to nothing they can do to fight back.
That the only real way to success is by tearing others down and taking what is theirs as your own. That the people who are wealthy today are only as wealthy as they are because they stole and took from the little guy – which is themselves (many people, not just black people, are trained to think this way). Black people are taught that the system in the United States was created for the purposes of keeping black folk down, elevate white people and that your success was largely determined by the color of your skin.
And so, organizations and slogans like “Black Lives Matter” emerge, which are basically true (black lives do, indeed, matter and very few people would disagree, but this is because all lives matter), but exclude everyone else whose lives are theretofore assumed to either not matter or not matter as much as black lives.
Black lives matter because all lives matter. It’s not an either-or thing when talking about the idea itself. The idea that all lives matter naturally includes black lives. But many black people are basically forced to chant that slogan because they are taught to have a mindset of inferiority. The Democrat Party of the past is no different than the one from today: they still try to tell black people they are inferior beings to white people. The only difference is that they used to frame that inferiority as a good thing. But they still teach black people that they are inferior when they, in actuality, are not.
However, many black people do feel inferior and it shows. The way the Left frames things is how they cause so much damage. For example, what is being considered as the reason for PepsiCo to drop the “Aunt Jemima” brand is a TikTok video of a black woman claiming the character to be racist. A black woman is possibly the reason that another black woman’s story and legacy is essentially being eliminated. This is the damage the Left has caused to the black community over the past few decades: blacks eliminating the history of other blacks.
Black people feel inferior when they really shouldn’t. There are plenty of stories of great success by black people that should tell them they are not inferior. Even Charlamagne tha God (real name Lenard Larry McKelvey), who spoke with Rush Limbaugh about racial problems in America, believes wholeheartedly that this country is racist and is predisposed to put black people down, even though he himself has a net worth of $10 million and a yearly salary of $3 million for his show. He is someone who had a troubled past (multiple stints in jail for a number of things) and yet, he has made something of himself out of basically nothing.
He is someone who believes this country systematically keeps black people down despite himself being an example that that is not the case at all (and the fact that so many other black people are also wealthy shows that he is the example to the rule, not the exception).
Nancy Green, like Charlamagne, made something out of herself from basically nothing. She should be a role model for black people, particularly young black kids, that it is very possible for them to succeed in this country. And yet, her story and legacy are essentially being erased by Leftists claiming to fight for racial progress.
Nancy Green is an inspiration to anyone who wishes to succeed. I hope the damage the Left has caused to the black communities for centuries now will soon be undone. Only then, would we see true racial progress and justice.

The term “systemic racism” has been a favorite amongst Leftists in recent time, as well as the idea to “defund the police”, as communists have ravaged and destroyed black-owned businesses and vandalized and destroyed statues of abolitionists all in the name of Black Lives Matter, not the idea, but the LGBT organization (read the BLM’s “What We Believe” page to find that they intend to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” and that they “foster a queer-affirming network” to find that it’s nothing but a Leftist LGBT org).
These communists decry racism and the police as they destroy places of work for black people and violently attack, to the point of killing, in some cases, black police officers and those who do not adhere to their ideologies. They cry about police brutality being rampant even though the first thing that comes to their mind when they are in any sort of trouble (which they often times bring on themselves when they assault other people) is to call the very police they believe is systematically and foundationally racist, corrupt and rotten.
However, the hypocrisy does not end there, as John Nolte from Breitbart News has a fantastic article regarding the Democrat Party’s systemic racism.
Which brings us to the title of this article. If one is to believe that this country is systemically racist, one can’t help but look at the Left as they are the ones in control of much of it. As I have stated in previous articles, they control many of the pillars of power in this country (and around the world, but let’s focus on the U.S. for now). Nolte points out, without necessarily talking about such pillars of power, that the Left is very much in control of the systemic racism that could be pointed at, if at all.
In a series of facts, Nolte makes a number of notes. First of all, if America’s system is built strictly for the benefit of white people, then how come Jews, black Nigerians, Indian Americans and Asians all are generally more successful than white people? They also are imprisoned at lower rates than white people.
While prisons do tend to have a majority black population (the 1994 crime bill, written by Joe Biden and signed by Bill Clinton, two Democrats, can be to thank for that), black people also tend to commit a lot of crimes. However, as we know, at least part of the reason is because of the Left’s programming of black people to feel and act in a certain way. When you feel like you are a victim and the whole world is against you, you tend to justify and excuse things you might otherwise have not.
Some more facts Nolte shares include the following:
The idea that black people are treated differently than white people because of their skin color is simply fiction created by the Left to sow discord among black people in an effort to incite a race war (which would then become a class war as well, which is classic Marxism).
However, even if you wanted to pretend that there is systemic racism, and there are people who believe that there is such a thing, then how come the majority of police brutality tragedies happen where Democrats run things? How is it that wherever there are cases of “systemic racism”, the people in charge of the system are usually Leftists?
Nolte made a relatively short list of controversial deaths of African Americans at the hands of police officers going back three years and a few that are older that made national news.
He names sixteen black Americans killed by police officers (whether they were justified or not was irrelevant for the purposes of this list) and fourteen of those sixteen cases were in cities where a Democrat was/is in charge of the police and judicial system.
Rayshard Brooks was killed (justifiably) in Atlanta, Georgia; Atlanta is run by Democrats. George Floyd was killed (unjustifiably) in Minneapolis, Minnesota; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Breonna Taylor was killed in Louisville, Kentucky; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Eric Garner was killed in New York, New York; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Freddie Gray was killed in Baltimore, Maryland; both the city and state are run by Democrats (and they are particularly corrupt ones).
If there is systemic racism in the cities where these black people were killed (and, of course, I didn’t even mention all of them), then why are Democrats doing nothing about it? They’ve had years and years to do something about it. The last time a Republican was mayor of Atlanta was in 1879. The last time a Republican was mayor of Louisville was in 1969. The last time a Republican was mayor of Baltimore was in 1967. The last time a Republican was mayor of Minneapolis was on December 31st, 1973. I specify the date because the guy was mayor for a single day and was succeeded by a Democrat the following day. Before then, the last time a Republican was mayor was 1961.
Some of the most notorious killings of black people by police officers happened in Democrat-run cities. If there is systemic racism, it is brought about by the Democrat Party.
Moving on, however, we also have another pillar of power: entertainment. Nolte lists a number of Leftist celebrities who have recently come under fire by the Leftist mob. There is, for example, Meghan Markle’s friend Jessica Mulroney whose reality tv show was canceled after she was called out on “textbook white privilege”, after having allegedly made threats against a black writer and influencer.
There is also the case of The Flash co-star Hartley Sawyer, who made controversial and offensive tweets years ago and was hounded for them.
There is also the now-deleted video from a number of Hollywood celebrities who “took responsibility” because they seemingly tolerated offensive jokes and “remained silent” about racial injustice which makes you think there must be an awful lot of racism in Hollywood for a lot of their stars to be “taking responsibility” for not having spoken out about it.
I mean, we already knew there are rapists in Hollywood who have only recently been exposed, such as Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, and that these Leftist celebrities kept their mouths shut about it even as countless women (and in some cases, men and underage boys and girls) have been made victims by those monsters (and prominent anti-Trumper Meryl Streep was great friends with Weinstein and called him a “god”), so it’s not too hard to imagine that there are also rampant racists in Hollywood. These are Leftists, after all. Racism courses through their veins.
Nolte also made sure to note that, over the last nine years living in the rural South, he has only heard of one racial remark (he’s white) when some dude suggested he name his black dog “Obama.” That is the only sort of racism that he has seen or experienced in the South and it was just a dumb remark that the guy apologized for immediately afterwards when he saw Nolte react negatively towards the remark.
But if numerous celebrities came together to make a video about all the racist remarks they heard and tolerated, or even the outright racial injustices they saw and said nothing about, just how much is racism running amok in Hellywood?
Now, of course, it’s just as easy to assume these celebrities didn’t actually encounter much, if any, racism and were just virtue signaling for the Leftist cause, which is certainly possible, but then they also can be called out for exploiting racial issues for personal gain, namely clout (popularity, for those who have never heard the term before). Calling them out on exploiting racial issues for clout is not as effective and fun as calling them out for Hollywood being filled with racists, so let’s go with the latter option until it is made certain that they aren’t racists.
But in any case, the main point is that, if there is systemic racism to be found anywhere in the country, it’s where Leftists are in control. Don’t misunderstand, I am not saying that there is systematic racism in this country. I don’t believe there is systematic racism (there is racism in general, but I don’t think it’s systematic or even as rampant as people might pretend).
However, if a Leftist wants to pretend there is systematic racism, they will have to explain just why it is that the vast majority of the places where black people were killed by officers (justifiably or not) are places where Democrats control practically everything and have for some time. Democrats run on such issues while doing nothing positive towards them, only making things worse in the belief that doing so will make more people dependent on them and can therefore never be taken out of power.
The sad part is that they could be right. While I do feel empathy for the people whose businesses were destroyed by the riots (or neighborhoods insurrected by communists in Seattle), they largely voted for these things. It’s awful that these things are happening but there is a very clear solution: don’t elect Democrats. It’s hard to feel much more empathetic when they continue to vote for people who are out to hurt and exploit them.
I hope that this election season, people will remember that the Democrats are responsible for the riots and the destruction, and are going so far as to justify and excuse them in many cases, and that they vote these dangerous people out of power for good.
If you believe there is systemic racism and want to definitively put an end to it wherever it might be found, never vote Democrat again.

During and following the chaos that were the riots “in response” to the death of George Floyd, a new mantra has been adopted and attempted to be popularized by the Left: defund the police/abolish the police, with the second being the crazier of the two.
Without police, criminals are free to do literally whatever they want. Even with a private police force (which I would assume such businesses would spring up due to demand for protection), the only people who would benefit from such a service would be the ones who could afford it (i.e. the rich, depending on how the system works and how much it would cost to hire such a force for a particular problem/crime). Abolishing/defunding the police would lead to far more black and brown deaths because such people tend to statistically be poorer (just ask Joe Biden, who considers all black and brown people to be poor) and black-on-black crime tends to happen a whole lot more too.
And yet, this is something the Left is now espousing, from Ilhan Omar to Bill de Blasio to Eric Garcetti. Even the Minneapolis City Council is set to vote to dismantle the police in the city. Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender went on Alysin Camerota’s show recently to talk about this idea.
Camerota asked the logical question of: “What if in the middle of the night, my home is broken into? Who do I call?”
Bender answered: “Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know – and myself too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”
Basically, you are a stinking, privileged person if you call the police after someone broke into your house or if someone raped you or if someone killed someone you love. This is the sort of insanity that these Leftists espouse, and proudly so.
The people demanding that cities defund their police forces are most often people who would call the police themselves if they find themselves in trouble and tend to be people who would not be negatively affected whatsoever by such a decision.
For example, former ESPN commentator Chris Palmer initially had no problem with the rioters and arsonists burning down inner city businesses and housing development units, even egging them on tweeting: “Burn that s**t down. Burn it all down,” but as soon as they showed up at his doorstep, he cried: “They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and are now in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live.”
So when the rioters destroyed a housing development meant for people who couldn’t afford housing, and must now live longer on the streets or in unsavory places, Chris Palmer was completely fine and wanted the destruction to continue, but as soon as the rioters presented the slightest of inconveniences or threats to him, he calls them “animals.” See, the revolting poors aren’t supposed to revolt against people like him, in his mind. The revolting poors are supposed to revolt against, well, themselves and the other rich people in the country.
As soon as the peasants turned their pitchforks on Palmer, he was shocked and chagrinned by the idea that they would be so barbaric and animalistic. The guy is a hypocrite, no doubt, and a typical Leftist. As soon as the mob became a liability, he was against them. A former Argentinian president, President Peron, used terrorists to regain office after having been ousted a couple decades before, and as soon as he regained power, he went after the terrorists who helped him because they were making demands of him that he didn’t want to fulfill.
People aren’t people to the Left, just means to an end. Black lives don’t matter to the Left, only insofar as they can make it a catchy slogan and get the black people to vote the way they are “supposed” to.
Which is why it’s not surprising to see them espouse the insane belief of “defund/abolish the police.” The wealthy Leftist elites will not at all be affected by this since they get their own security forces to protect them. But if the idea gets enough people to vote for them in November, even at the cost of many people’s lives, it will all be worth it.
However, we all know how insanely dangerous such an idea is in practicality. With Minneapolis announcing they would be voting to disband their police force, they are telling any and all criminals that the city is theirs for the taking, as long as they don’t bother their “betters” in the Leftist elites.
If people want actually effective and good solutions, I have two, with one being honestly less likely to happen than the other.
One solution is the country, as a whole, turning to Christ. Each instance of police brutality, whether perpetuated on someone like George Floyd or Tony Timpa, is an instance of Christ not being in a police officer/officers’ heart(s).
It is understandable that an officer of the law will have to use force in certain situations, sometimes even lethal force. However, in situations like with George Floyd, the force we saw used was excessive (and the guy was clearly enjoying himself). Excessive use of force is not right, is not just, and is not indicative of a person seeking to embody the teachings of Christ.
A true Christian will not seek and savor the opportunity to abuse a brother/sister or a neighbor. A true Christian will seek to do right by people, even those who commit crimes; punishing them as they ought to be with the right sort of punishment. George Floyd had a history of crimes and he was being arrested for a reason. Punishment needed to come his way as a result of his criminal actions (slight as they might have been). Delivering justice is necessary. Delivering excessive punishment is unjust. It’s why we have the 8th Amendment, after all. What happened to George Floyd, apart from being murder of the third degree (at most, given the evidence, and there is a chance that he walks if overcharged, which will likely incite more riots, which is probably what Leftist Keith Ellison wants), was also a violation of his 8th Amendment rights.
With the country turning to Christ, not only would you see a great downtick in police brutality, but also in crime itself. However, it is irrational to expect that the entire country, all 300 million+ of us, would simultaneously turn to Christ. Even if there is a Christian revival that comes out of this (and I do hope there is one because this country and the world in general desperately need the Lord), that won’t mean that everyone will become a Christian and all crime will stop, or even that all police officers will be good.
Which is why I say that, if there is a Christian revival in this country soon, that won’t outright end all police brutality, only stifle it. I’m afraid injustice cannot be eliminated in an imperfect world, and it certainly cannot be eliminated by an imperfect people. There is only one place in existence where there is no injustice and that is Heaven.
No amount of legislation, no amount of having discussions (especially if that leads to communism, which is antithetical to justice) and no amount of reform can eliminate immorality and evil in people’s hearts. Even in Christ, we are still an imperfect people. So there will not be an elimination of injustice in this world. Not absolutely.
However, there is another solution that can work and be a bit more pragmatic in this instance (not to say the country turning to Christ wouldn’t be a viable and effective solution, but I cannot expect the entire country to do that).
Eliminating police unions will stifle police brutality as well and I think that is a bit more of an achievable goal than the entire country turning to Christ (much as I would want that to happen).
Police unions, like teacher’s unions, protect the people who should not be protected. They mask the actions of the bad ones and keep justice from being served equally under the law.
There is a great article at The Washington Examiner that talks more in-depth about it, pointing out how even in the instance of the George Floyd killing, it took the MPD FIVE DAYS to just arrest Chauvin, the officer who killed Floyd, let alone the other three who were complicit to his murder. If you know where a murder suspect is, the police will arrest them pretty much immediately… unless a police officer is the murderer, it seems.
Even the president of the city’s police union was livid at the fact that the officers were fired EVEN AFTER THE EVIDENCE OF ONE OF THEM KILLING A PERSON AND THE OTHER THREE BEING COMPLICIT IN MURDER WAS WIDELY KNOWN TO EVERYONE.
Keep in mind as well that Chauvin has 17 complaints reported against him, only one of which received any sort of punishment at all in the form of a reprimand letter (which is the equivalent of a slap in the wrist). The guy is a problematic cop who has gotten away with almost everything he has done because he is protected by his union.
Allow me to quote some things from The Washington Examiner that will make your blood boil if you didn’t know this already or hadn’t read it before:
“[I]t’s concerning that [Chauvin] faced a complaint, on average, almost every year he worked for the Minneapolis Police Department (he was a cop for 20 years), and he never faced any meaningful consequences… Police unions [use] the protections they’ve collectively bargained into the disciplinary appeals process to slow down the justice system when officers begin to face scrutiny.”
“One study found that 70% of the 656 union contracts evaluated by researchers allow officers to appeal to an ‘arbitrator’, or a third party, who has the power to determine disciplinary action or dismiss it altogether. And here’s the catch: About 54% of these contracts gave the unions the power to select the arbitrator. In other words, if the union appeals an officer’s case and the appeal is approved, it can choose an arbitrator who will make the case disappear.”
How else do you think officers like the one who refused to protect people getting shot in the Parkland high school can REGAIN THEIR JOB despite being entirely unfit to serve?
Police unions protect bad cops from accountability, which in turn leads some cops to basically act like they can do whatever they want free of consequence, which in turn leads to situations like FOUR COPS THINKING THE SLOW KILLING OF A MAN IS PERFECTLY OKAY.
If you want to really stifle police brutality, don’t defund or abolish the police (because that is literally one of the stupidest ideas I’ve ever heard), eliminate the police unions that serve to protect the bad cops from being held accountable.
Unions in general are communist bullcrap, regardless of profession. Eliminating police unions is something, I think, most people could agree with, almost regardless of what ideals they hold.
