The “Un-Whitening” – Jews Become Black Again Under Chumph

Jewish people suffered under discrimination for a long time after coming to this country. Through hard work, financial success, and becoming major players in a number of industries… Jews in America became “white”. A few even joined groups which promoted discrimination agains non-whites.

The Chumph administration with a number of virulently anti-Semitic staff and extremist “pro-christian appointees, is set to push that back to the last century to a time when they used to lynch people for being Jewish.

Are Jews White?

Trump’s election has reopened questions that have long seemed settled in America—including the acceptability of open discrimination against minority groups.

When Stephen Bannon called his website, Breitbart, the “platform for the alt-right” this summer, he was referring to a movement that promotes white nationalism and argues that the strength of the United States is tied to its ethnic European roots. Its members mostly stick to trolling online, but much of what they do isn’t original or new: Their taunts often involve vicious anti-Semitism. They make it clear that Jews are not included in their vision of a perfect, white, ethno-state.

On the opposite side of American politics, many progressive groups are preparing to mount a rebellion against Donald Trump. They see solidarity among racial minorities as their goal, and largely blame Trump’s election on racism and white supremacy. Three-quarters of American Jews voted against Trump, and many support this progressive vision. Some members of these groups, though, have singled out particular Jews for their collusion with oppressive power—criticisms which range from inflammatory condemnations of Israel to full-on conspiraciesabout global Jewish media and banking cabals.

These are rough sketches of two camps, concentrated at the margins of U.S. political culture. On the extreme right, Jews are seen as impure—a faux-white race that has tainted America. And on the extreme left, Jews are seen as part of a white-majority establishment that seeks to dominate people of color. Taken together, these attacks raise an interesting question: Are Jews white?

“Jewish identity in American is inherently paradoxical and contradictory,” said Eric Goldstein, an associate professor of history at Emory University. “What you have is a group that was historically considered, and considered itself, an outsider group, a persecuted minority. In the space of two generations, they’ve become one of the most successful, integrated groups in American society—by many accounts, part of the establishment. And there’s a lot of dissonance between those two positions.”

As pro- and anti-Trump movements jockey to realize their agendas, the question of Jews and whiteness illustrates the high stakes—and dangers—of racialized politics. Jews, who do not fit neatly into American racial categories, challenge both sides’ visions for the country. Over time, Jews have become more integrated into American society—a process scholars sometimes refer to as “becoming white.” It wasn’t the skin color of Ashkenazi Jews of European descent that changed, though; it was their status. Trump’s election has convinced some Jews that they remain in the same position as they have throughout history: perpetually set apart from other groups through their Jewishness, and thus left vulnerable.

From the earliest days of the American republic, Jews were technically considered white, at least in a legal sense. Under the Naturalization Act of 1790, they were considered among the “free white persons” who could become citizens. Later laws limited the number of immigrants from certain countries, restrictions which were in part targeted at Jews. But unlike Asian and African immigrants in the late 19th century, Jews retained a claim to being “Caucasian,” meaning they could win full citizenship status based on their putative race.

Culturally, though, the racial status of Jews was much more ambiguous. Especially during the peak of Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many Jews lived in tightly knit urban communities that were distinctly marked as separate from other American cultures: They spoke Yiddish, they published their own newspapers, they followed their own schedule of holidays and celebrations. Those boundaries were further enforced by widespread anti-Semitism: Jews were often excluded from taking certain jobs, joining certain clubs, or moving into certain neighborhoods. Insofar as “whiteness” represents acceptance in America’s dominant culture, Jews were not yet white.

Over time, though, they assimilated. Just like other white people, they fled to the suburbs. They took advantage of educational opportunities like the G.I. bill. They became middle class. “They thought they were becoming white,” said Lewis Gordon, a professor of philosophy at the University of Connecticut. “Many of them stopped speaking Yiddish. Many of them stopped going to synagogue. Many of them stopped wearing the accoutrements of Jewishness.”

Jews think about questions of race in their own lives with incredible diversity. There are many different kinds of Jews: Orthodox, secular, Reform; Jews by birth, Jews by choice, Jews by conversion. Some Jews who aren’t particularly religious may identify as white, but others may feel that their Jewishness is specifically linked to their ethnic inheritance. “If you’re a secular Jew, how are you a Jew? It has to be through your cultural or ethnic identity,” said Gordon. “Whereas if you’re a religious Jew, you would argue that you’re a Jew primarily through your religious practices.” As Jews assimilated into American culture, “ironically, investment in religiosity paved the way for greater white identification of many Jews,” he said, allowing more religiously observant Jews to think of themselves as white, rather than ethnically Jewish.

Goldstein sees it differently. “‘Whiteness’ and engagement with the categories of ‘white’ and ‘black’ are a reflection of a level of acculturation into a larger society,” he said. The Orthodox are “not just religiously different [from other Jews], but … socially separated,” he added. “They tend to see the world through the lens of their own community.” In other words, their categories for understanding themselves and others might not be “white” and “non-white”; they’re more likely to be “Jewish” and “non-Jewish.”...Read the Rest Here

Uncle Ben Get His Payoff

Ben Carson, who knows about as much about housing and urban development as a outhouse – now has the job to derail fair housing in the US. Loyal Lawn Jockey to the end, Uncle Ben describes fair housing as “Communism”. Utterly unqualified, Uncle Ben has never held any sort of office, has no background or training in the field, Just another Uncle Tom on his knees sucking the KKK’s man parts.

Donald Trump Taps Ben Carson To Lead Housing & Urban Development

Carson has never held public office.

President-elect Donald Trump is nominating Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has never held public office, as his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

In a statement released Monday, Trump called Carson a “distinguished national leader” with a “brilliant mind.”

Carson, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, told Fox News last month that he was considering the position. This was a shift from his earlier assertion that he wasn’t qualified for a Cabinet position.

Trump’s choice to nominate Carson is just the latest confirmation that he’s prioritizing loyalty over government experience. One of the president-elect’s first hirings was Steve Bannon, a former Breitbart executive with ties to white nationalists. Bannon was a close adviser to Trump during the campaign.

He is also tapping a billionaire former coal mine owner to be Commerce Secretary and Hollywood financier for Treasury Secretary.

As HUD chief, Carson will be tasked with setting housing policies for the Trump Administration, including access to affordable housing and community development. Carson’s comments on certain anti-discrimination policies ― he has called one plan a “mandated social-engineering scheme” ― is likely to concern some fair housing advocates.

“These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson said in a Washington Times piece last year. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”

As the Daily Beast points out, as HUD Secretary, “Carson would, in part, be the very person entrusted to get it right.”

Self Protection Under the Trump Reich

With the thousands of hate crimes committed by racist Trump followers since the election, it has become increasingly obvious it is up to minorities to protect themselves.

Here are a few good choices for concealed carry weapons.

SCCY CPX-II

This is the SCCY CPX-II. It is relatively new to the market. It carries 11 rounds in a 10+1 configuration of 9mm ammo. It is also one of the more inexpensive guns in his class. What I like about it is there are no exterior bumps or controls to snag on a holster or in your pocket in an emergency, and the 11 round capacity. In general, “carry” pistols are not very accurate. They are designed for close range, no more than 10-15′. The large capacity makes up for that. This gun does not have a safety, and to compensate for that it has a heavy trigger pull (9 lbs). The recoil of a 9mm in this small frame may be a bit much for smaller women.  This is an American made quality pistol perfect for self defense. (And ladies, it comes in 3 colors – black, pink, and purple). Price – around $350.

 

Beretta Nano

The Beretta Nano is one of the best designed pistols on the market for concealed carry.No protrusions on the gun to snag, and a reliable frame make this a contender as best in class. It comes with two magazines, one a 6 round, one an 8 round. Meaning it can be carried in a 6+1 or 8+1 configuration. The frame and rail system make this one of the few compacts which will survive extended range use. It has an internal safety. Cost is about $500. The gun itself is less than 1″ wide, making it 1) easy to handle for people with small hands, and 2) easily concealable in a waistband.

Bersa Thunder 380

The Bersa uses a 380 round, which is slightly smaller than a 9mm. The recoil is easily managed by most women. The 380 round is not as devastating as the 9mm but packs plenty of power. The gun is operable in singe or double action mode, and includes an external safety. It includes an internal lock down system, completely disabling the gun for storage at home (and to keep the kiddies from firing it accidentally). It also has a trigger guard designed to allow the shooter to use the gun even if wearing gloves. At slightly less than 23 ounces, it is lightweight, and not going to wear you out carrying it around. It is a reliable weapon for about $350. The gun is made in Argentina, and is a loose copy of the famous Walther PPK. Suggest carrying it in a 6+1 configuration instead of the full magazine capacity of 7 rounds.

For “Wheel Gun” fans, I recommend the Smith and Wesson 642. This design has been around 75 years, and has stood the test of time. Have no fear in buying one of these used. My personal favorite is a “44 Bulldog” using the 44 Caliber Round. The new guns frames are aluminum, with a steel barrel and cylinder making them substantially lighter then the old all steel guns. The hammerless design means no snags when you draw it, and along with the low profile sight makes this an excellent choice. I have one of these which used to be called “Airline” models which after 911 were converted to the “Airweight” Model. The 38 round is actually a more powerful round than the 9mm, which isn’t necessarily a good thing as the 38 is high velocity meaning it likely will go though a target. As to hitting anything beyond about 15′ – forget it. These are designed as close in defense weapons. There are a number of models, and these can be bought new from about $320 and up based on caliber and extras.

Smith & Wesson 642 M642_163810_L

To stay away from?

The small Glocks. Now the Model 47 Version 3. The reason there are multiple versions of this gun is the safety, which had a habit of disengaging on draw…Resulting in a number of users ending their family plans with what we euphemistically call a “Hillbilly Vasectomy”. I generally don’t like Glocks due to less then stellar accuracy, first round jamming, and handling. When I go to the range, I outshoot even supposedly “expert” shooters with those with my relatively antique (designed in 1930), slightly modified Browning Hi-Power all day long. When I upgrade I plan to buy a Sig Sauer P229 in 9mm, which flat out is the best off-the-shelf gun in that caliber out there (Stay away from the 40 Cal and Sig 357 in this gun!). Not cheap at over $1000, but worth it.

I will do another on large frame guns at another time.

Lastly – Why 9mm?

9mm is one of four calibers, including 22, 38, and 45 which are extremely popular and thus are made in mass quantities. You can almost always find any of the four in your local Walmart as well as your local country hardware store. The 9 mm is used by the Military – meaning the are billions of those floating around, So, in the event of a “Zombie” or Trump apocalypse, unlike the less popular rounds (10 mm, 357, 40 Cal, etc), these will be available for a long time.

Special “Justice” fo “Special” People and The Case of Bresha Meadows

Just yesterday, a white man attacked a black man, dragged him from his car and shot him dead…And was released from jail without charges.

Bresha Meadows is a 14 year old girl, who after years of domestic abuse and beatings by her father, shot him dead. She was locked up immediately, and 6 months later is still incarcerated awaiting trial.

Once more “justice” in America depends a lot more on the color of the purported criminal…Than the commission of a crime.

Bresha Meadows Isn’t a Murderer. She’s a Hero.

After years of suffering abuse at the hands of her father, a 14-year-old girl picked up a gun and put an end to it all. Now, she faces a new monster: the criminal justice system.

Bresha Meadows knows what monsters looked like. 

She saw one daily, his presence unavoidable as he tormented her family through the shadows of the night and even in the broad daylight. She watched helplessly as he brutalized her mother, threatening and beating his children, hoping against hope that the looming horrors would end.

Jonathan Meadows, she says, repeatedly threatened to kill them all.

But when the then 14-year-old Ohio girl picked up a gun and shot her father in the head last July 28, ending a years-long campaign of terror, she woke to a new monster—one that was supposed to protect her: the criminal justice system.    

Bresha was arrested and held in a Warren County juvenile detention center, charged with aggravated murder. Warren County prosecutors fought to push to try her case into the adult system where she would face a possible life sentence. The district attorney reversed course Thursday, but the question remains: Should she face charges at all?

Like Bresha, I’ve met my share of monsters. There was my father who pushed my mother’s face through a plate glass window and, later, her live-in boyfriend forced me into a bathtub filled with scalding hot water. I was five years old at the time, but I can still see the redness and the yellow blisters that swelled on my pale bony legs. I can still hear my screams roaring in my ears. My then 14-year-old brother Donnie kicked down the bathroom door and pulled me from the tub. My sister Lori Ann, who was 12, called my mother at work.

Mama shot Tony in the leg that night, leaving him with a permanent limp. Years later, she brandished her pistol again after he threatened to kill her and dump her body in the Mississippi River.

She was arrested on a gun possession charge. Nearly four decades later, my mother thought the case was closed until it was discovered in a background check for a concealed carry license.

I will never forget the night that Tony beat her savagely, upending our living room furniture as she struggled to get away. My brother Christopher, best friend Debbie and I locked ourselves in a bedroom, stuffing metal and wooden toys into pillow cases and barricading the door. We were children– eight and nine years old– preparing to defend ourselves with anything we could get our hands on.

I ran away from home at least twice that year, trying to escape the madness. Debbie helped me pack an overnight bag with clothes, a few toiletries, my favorite dolls and a sandwich she took from her mother’s kitchen. But, at eight years old, I had barely enough money—between my allowance and hers– to catch a Bi-State bus down St. Charles Rock Road in St. Ann, Missouri and cross into the city limits of St. Louis to get to my Aunt Doris Jean’s house.

Tony circled the block, looking for me. I hid out in the county library, clutching the bus schedule, until the next one came by. I watched him turn the corner, then I hurried aboard, dropped two quarters into the slot and slunk down into the nearest seat. I didn’t feel safe until the bus reached the stop near Martin Luther King Drive and Taylor Avenue. I walked the last block, lugging my suitcase down an unpaved alleyway. 

Nobody was home when I got to my auntie’s run-down, walk-up apartment, except her feral old cat Samantha and a mutt named Lady. I waited on the porch with the dog until my Uncle Willie Byrd stumbled in drunk after nightfall.

That was 1976. 

Our physical wounds have healed, but the emotional scars remain. I was told that Anthony Gino Delgado died in prison after he was convicted on capital murder charges. My brother Donnie said Tony was in jail because he decapitated a man with the sickle.

Like my mother, I would later face down my own abuser. I repeatedly tried to leave and was stabbed in the back the day I finally got out. We were lucky.

“Approximately 75 percent of women who are killed by their batterers are murdered when they attempt to leave or after they have left an abusive relationship,”researchers found, and “women are 70 percent more likely to be killed in the two weeks after leaving than at any other time during the relationship,” experts say.

One in three women are victims of domestic violence, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the presence of a gun in the household increases the likelihood by 500 percent. “One in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90 percent of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.”

Children are not only witnesses, but are often victimized—as both Bresha and I were– by the same abuser. The impacts are life-long.  We are “six times more likely to commit suicide,” according to Brian F. Martin, who founded the nonprofit advocacy group Children of Domestic Violence.

Despite the facts of the Meadows case and the body of research that clearly spells out the dangers of domestic violence, prosecutors chose to charge Bresha in her father’s death. The announcement that her case will be tried by a juvenile judge was welcome news. However, if convicted, Bresha, who is the niece of a Cleveland police officer, can still be incarcerated until her 21stbirthday.

“I am obviously thrilled with the decision by the prosecutor to keep Bresha’s case in the juvenile court,” defense attorney Ian Friedman said. “This doesn’t change our position that this was a self-defense scenario and we will press on with our effort to get Bresha home with her family right away. Today is a great day.”

There is a national movement to free Bresha. “Over 100 domestic violence organizations have endorsed a call to drop the charges against her and grant her an immediate release,” according to Huffington Post. “A petition with the same request has over 24,000 signatures.” 

Before the shooting, Officer Martina Latessa said Bresha ran away from home and opened up about her father’s brutality. She reportedly told her aunt that her father had beaten her mother and “threatened to kill the entire family.” Bresha, she said, was “suicidal.”

“We didn’t know for months what was going to happen,” she said. “Now we know she will not spend the rest of her life in prison, no matter what.” 

That isn’t enough. The charges should be dropped altogether and the family should be given the resources necessary to rebuild their lives. The profound and traumatic impacts to Bresha, whose mother called her a “hero,” will be long lasting. By the time Bresha makes the next court appearance on January 20, she will have spent nearly six months behind bars.

That will be six months too long.

White Murderer Released After Pulling Unarmed Black Man From Car and Shooting Him

I haven’t carried my guns in a long time…I do now. First Trumpazoid who crosses me with some off the wall shit…Is a dead man.

White man who gunned down black ex-NFL player in road rage case released without charges

Ronald Gasser (Nick M./Twitter)

A man who shot and killed a former NFL player during an apparent road rage incident has been released without charges.

Joe McKnight, a former New Orleans high school star, was shot dead about 3 p.m. Thursday during an argument at an intersection in Terrytown, reported The Times-Picayune.

A witness said she saw a man, later identified as 54-year-old Ronald Gasser, yelling at the 28-year-old McKnight, who was attempting to apologize.

Witnesses said Gasser, who is white, pulled McKnight, who is black, from his Audi, argued with him and then shot him more than once as he stood over him.

“I told you not to f*ck with me,” Gasser said, before firing once more at McKnight as he lay on the ground.

McKnight, who last played in the NFL in 2014, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gasser was taken to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office for questioning but was released overnight without charges, reported The Advocate.

Deputies said the fatal shooting remains under investigation.

Investigators said McKnight, who was named the Times-Picayune’s male athlete of the decade in 2009 after a standout career at John Curtis Christian School, was not armed at the time of his death.

No other guns were found outside his vehicle.

Witnesses said Gasser and McKnight had exchanged words before the confrontation at the intersection of Behrman Highway and Holmes Boulevard.

Louisiana’s “stand your ground” law permits deadly force if the shooter believes they’re in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm.

Cardell Hayes, who fatally shot NFL player Will Smith earlier in April in another New Orleans road rage case, is expected to claim self-defense under that statute, which was passed in 2005.

Trumpazoid Convicted of 10 Felony Election Frauds

Yet another Chumph boy arrested and convicted of a felony.

Adding evidence of why there is a high likelihood the election was hacked.

I hope he spends his 5 years in Gen Pop.

Michigan Trump staffer convicted on ten counts of felony election fraud

Brandon Hall (Facebook)

A Grand Haven, Michigan man who worked on the Michigan Trump campaign was found guilty on ten counts of election fraud Wednesday for forging signatures on petition forms in 2012.

Grand Haven Tribune reports that self-described “political junkie” Brandon Hall faces up to five years in prison for signing other people’s names in support of 2012 judicial candidate Chris Houtaling.

The 27-year-old did not take the stand his defense, but Hall’s friend Zachary Savage told the court he and Hall forged the signatures as Houtaling drove them to drop off the petitions by the filing deadline. Savage and Houtaling have not been charged for the incident.

Hall’s case made it to the Michigan Supreme Court in June when the defense argued he should be charged with misdemeanors instead of felonies. The high court overturned the Michigan Court of Appeals, maintaining Hall’s felony charges.

In 2012, Hall was convicted for stealing from a school fundraiser where he serves on the Grand Haven school board. He ran earlier this year for the state House 89th District.

In a statement, Progress Michigan said Hall’s conviction is proof that former Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s recount effort should continue in Michigan.

“Donald Trump has made claim after claim calling the integrity of the election into question, but his Michigan campaign had no problem hiring a staff member facing election law charges,” executive director Lonnie Scott said. “The fact that the Trump campaign and the Michigan Republican Party embraced Brandon Hall is just one more reason to recount and audit the vote in Michigan.”

Ain’t It Funny How…

Conservatives in this country cheer the death of Castro, a communist dictator, but love and elect the pawn of a neo-communist dictator, Vladimir Putin because of racism.

Cuba hardliners: Castro’s death is no time to go soft

 

Two of the fiercest congressional critics of Fidel Castro are rejoicing after his death, and laying down a marker for President Barack Obama and his successor: Don’t go soft on Cuba now.

“The day that the people, both inside the island and out, have waited for has arrived: A tyrant is dead and a new beginning can dawn on the last remaining communist bastion of the Western hemisphere,” Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Cuban-American lawmaker and a longtime foe of Cuba’s communist dictator, said in a statement early Saturday.

Ros-Lehtinen added a warning to Fidel Castro’s brother Raul, who has ruled in his stead since 2006 and announced his death on Cuban state television last night.

“Those who still rule Cuba with an iron grip may attempt to delay the island’s liberation, but they cannot stop it,” she said. “Castro’s successors cannot hide and must not be allowed to hide beneath cosmetic changes that will only lengthen the malaise of the Cuban nation. No regime, no matter who leads it, will have a shred of legitimacy if it has not been chosen by the people of Cuba in free and fair elections.”…

All that hypocrisy from the descendants of one of the world’s most brutal dictatorships which Castro overthrew. A group of people whose own ugly racial history has planted them frmly on the Republican plantation, and voting for the Chumph.
