Nearly 100 NYPD Officers Rally In Support Of Colin Kaepernick

They showed up wearing shirts that read “ImWithKap.”

It’s been nearly a year since Colin Kaepernick began his protests during the national anthem at football games. And now, some members of the New York Police Department are showing their support for the former 49ers quarterback’s fight against racial injustice and police brutality.

Nearly 100 active and retired officers, mostly cops of color, wearing black shirts reading ”#ImWithKap” rallied in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, The New York Timesreports. Sergeant Edwin Raymond, who organized the event, told The Times that he was planning this event prior to the Charlottesville incident, but the violence made the need for the event even more pressing.

During the event, speakers related the backlash Kaepernick faced for his demonstration to the recent violence in Charlottesville sparked by a white supremacist rally. Kaepernick’s non-profit, Know Your Rights Camp, shared photos from the event on Twitter.

 

“As members of law enforcement, we can confirm that the issues he is saying exist in policing, and throughout the criminal justice system, indeed exist,” Raymond said at the rally.

City Councilman Jumaane D. Williams, a speaker at the rally, said more cops should be speaking out about accountability, per NY1.

“All of the people behind me risk their lives, so to speak, to protect folks, and they are standing with Kaepernick because they understand how important it is to push back on the structure,” he said.

Retired officer Frank Serpico, whose campaign against corruption in the police department was the subject of the 1973 film “Serpico,” was also in attendance. The 81-year-old told the Associated Press that he felt moved to support Kaepernick.

“He’s trying to hold up this government up to our founding fathers,” he said. “Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it, unfortunately we’re going to have these issues.”

Williams told The Times that Kaepernick ― who still hasn’t been signed by an NFL team ― making this stance doesn’t mean he’s anti-police.

“People use the terms ‘antipolice,’ ‘unpatriotic,’ to scare people from stepping forward,” he told the Times after the rally. “It takes courage to say, ‘I’m going to do it anyway, because it’s what’s right.’”

Trump Lawn Jockey Katrina Pierson – “So Happy About Slavery”

Why did even the Chumph administration dump this freak?

 

Katrina Pierson implodes on Fox: Slavery is an example of how ‘special and wonderful this country is’

Pro-Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson, whose historical illiteracy made her infamous during the 2016 presidential campaign, appeared on Fox & Friends Monday morning to talk about the history of the Civil War and the Confederacy.

Via Media Matters, Pierson made the case that Confederate statues shouldn’t be removed because they represent a vital part of America’s history — but she then took this argument a step further by saying that they represent a “good” part of U.S. history.

“It absolutely deserves a place, because bad history is still good history for this country,” Pierson said.

At this point, Fox & Friends guest Wendy Osefo interjected and asked Pierson if she really meant that a war to defend slavery was a positive highlight from America’s past.

“Slavery is good history?” Osefo asked.

“Considering where we are today… absolutely,” Pierson responded. “Think about this for a second. Where would we be today if not for that Civil War?”

At this point Osefo became incredulous.

“Where would we be without slavery?” she asked. “Are you serious? Do you hear what you’re saying?”

Pierson then said that teaching our children about the history of slavery was a good way of educating them about what makes America “special.”

“How would our children even know how special and how wonderful this country is that we can even be having this discussion today?” she asked.

“How special slavery is?” Osefo replied. “You know how many people died?”

Nina Turner, Bakari Sellers Discuss confederate Symbology/Racism With Rick Santorum and Rep Scott Taylor(Va -R)

Pretty good discussion. Santorum goes off the rails (as usual) claiming protesting against inequality is somehow making inequality…

The New Jim Crow is that “complaining about inequality is inequality”

Foreign Commentator…Meet the KKK

Univision journalist Ilia Calderón probably thought she was going to interview a normal human when she decided to interview a KKK Grand Dragon in his lair.

A lot of folks just don’t seem to realize what the KKK is – especially foreigners. So when the Chumph equates the KKK and antifa – this is what he is defending.

A regular “Negro Wake-up Call” for her and her viewers.

KKK leader threatens life of Afro-Latina journalist during interview

“We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million is nothing,” said the KKK’s Chris Barker

Ilia Calderón, an afro-latina reporter, feared for the safety of herself and her crew after being threatened by a KKK leader during an interview.

Calderón, an immigrant journalist for Univision of both African and Colombian descent, agreed to meet the grand wizard of Loyal White Knights faction of the KKK Chris Barker on his property in North Carolina in July.

After watching Barker conduct a ceremony with his fellow KKK members dressed in robes and yielding torches, she sat down with the leader and his wife for an interview. Things escalated quickly as Barker questioned why the journalist didn’t “go back” to the country she was born in. “We have nothing here in America; ya’ll keep flooding it,” he said. “But like God says – like Yahweh himself says – we will chase you out of here.”

Barker continued to say that he and his fellow white supremacists would “burn out” all of the immigrants in the country. After Calderón questioned exactly how that could happen, he responded saying, “We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million is nothing.”

Later on in the interview, Barker refers to the journalist as a “mongrel” and a “n*****,” then proceeded to claim he isn’t racist because he was part of a Christian group and not a hate group.

“My team told me that I would be insulted, and I knew, but I never imagined the level,” Calderón told Univision. “. . . At that time I was really felt very afraid for my safety and the safety of my team.”

“As part of the editorial meetings we were discussing the incidents of hate that had been presented, and how, from 2016 to here, these people and these groups feel entitled to raise its highest voice – perhaps backed by a President who speaks very weakly about it,” she said.

The “Christian group” had a lot to say about the riots in Charlottesville last weekend. The Loyal Knights praised James Fields — the man who drove his car into a sea of protesters that ended in the death of one women — for “running over nine communist anti-fascists.”

“When a couple of them die, it doesn’t bother us,” Barker said. “They’re always attacking and messing with our rallies.”

Charities dump Trump: More than a dozen groups cancel fundraisers at Mar-a-Lago

So far 16 charities have pulled out of holding their events at Trump’s club

Since Donald Trump blamed “both sides” for the deadly violence in Charlottesville last weekend, 16 charities have canceled their events at his Mar-a-Lago golf club.

On Friday, The American Red Cross said it nixed their plan to host their annual International Red Cross ball at the Palm Beach resort because of Trump’s response to the events in Charlottesville were controversial and distressing to their supporters.

“The American Red Cross has decided we cannot host our annual fundraising event at Mar-a-Lago, as it has increasingly become a source of controversy and pain for many of our volunteers, employees and supporters”, the Red Cross said in a statement.

“We believe this action will allow us to continue to put the focus on our lifesaving mission and the people we serve. The Red Cross provides assistance without discrimination to all people in need, regardless of nationality, race, religious beliefs, or political opinions, and we must be clear and unequivocal in our defense of that principle.”

Five other charities have cancelled their events at the club in the past 24 hours, including the Cleveland Clinic — the leading academic hospital, the American Cancer Society, and the Friends of Magen David Adom, the Israeli Red Cross, according to an updated list from the Palm Beach Daily News. In addition, the Salvation Army, the Autism Project of Palm Beach County and Susan G Komen have all cancelled their events, per the Washington Post.

Entire membership of Trump’s arts council quits over Charlottesville remarks

Another presidential advisory committee is breaking up.

Actor Kal Penn, artist Chuck Close and the entire membership of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities have announced their resignation. A letter dated Friday, and signed by 16 of 17 committee members, cited the “false equivalence” of President Donald Trump‘s comments about last weekend’s “Unite the Right” gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia. Trump has blamed “many sides” for the demonstrations that left an anti-racism activist dead.

The White House said Trump had already decided against renewing the advisory committee for budgetary reasons.

“Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions,” the letter reads. “Supremacy, discrimination, and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. We are better than this. If this is not clear to you, then we call on you to resign your office, too.”

The only member whose name did not appear was Broadway director George C. Wolfe. Representatives for Wolfe at Creative Arts Agency said Friday that he was also resigning and that his name would be added to the letter, which seemed to contain a hidden political message beyond the ones stated openly. The first initials of the letter’s six main paragraphs spell out “r-e-s-i-s-t.”

Multiple Police Officers Shot in Kissimmee, Jacksonville, and Pennsyllvania

Un-freakin-believable! Six Officers shot in two states in the last 24 hours. These guys were just doing their duty, and this serves as a reminder of how dangerous their jobs can be just doing their normal duty.

 

 

1 police officer killed, 5 others injured in 3 shootings in Florida and Pennsylvania

One police officer was killed and three wounded in nighttime shootings in two Florida cities where the officers were responding to suspected drug activity and reports of a suicide attempt, police said Saturday.

In Pennsylvania, two state troopers were shot outside a small-town store in Fairchance, south of Pittsburgh. State police say the troopers, both taken to hospitals after the Friday night shooting in Fairchance, were in stable condition.

One officer was killed and another gravely injured late Friday night in Kissimmee in central Florida just south of the theme park hub of Orlando. Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell said at a news conference Saturday that a suspect, Everett Miller, was arrested several hours after the shootings.

He faces a first-degree murder charge. Authorities originally said they believed there were four suspects, but the chief said no other arrests are anticipated.

The other two officers were injured a couple of hours later in Jacksonville, one of them shot in both hands and the other in the stomach. The shooter in Jacksonville was shot and killed when police returned fire.

In Kissimmee, officers Sam Howard and Matthew Baxter were checking suspects in an area of the city for drug activity when they were shot, O’Dell said earlier. They did not have an opportunity to return fire.

“They were surprised,” O’Dell said. When asked whether they were ambushed, he said, “It’s too early to tell, but it’s leading that way.”
