Ex-Soldier Saved Lives With Dying Breath at Planned Parenthood Massacre

The right-wing extremists leading the Republican Party are now in full backpedal mode after one of their disciples murdered 3 people and shot 9 at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. This is a direct result of the hate speech directed at Liberals and Minorities. This brave ex-Soldier perhaps prevented the toll from being worse…

Iraq vet used dying moments to warn others after getting shot by Planned Parenthood terrorist

Ke’Arre Stewart, the Iraq War veteran gunned down by right-wing terrorist Robert Louis Dear on Friday, used his dying moments to tell people inside the building to take cover.

According to NBC News, Stewart, 29, had stepped outside the building to use his cell phone when he was shot by Dear, who killed two other people and injured nine in the attack. Stewart, a devoted husband and father of two, rushed into the building in spite of his injuries and shouted for everyone to take cover.

His brother Leyonte Chandler told Today on Monday morning that Stewart’s military training must have compelled him to help others in the line of fire.

“I believe that’s his military instinct, you know: Leave no soldier behind, leave no civilian behind, just leave no one behind,” Chandler said. “So he ran back inside, trying to help out others. I don’t know where he was at, as far as how many more breaths he had, but he knew. And before his time ran out I guess that was his main priority…to help and save other lives.”

“He tried to run back inside the building — well, he did — and tell the other people inside, you know, ‘Take cover, get down.’ People started taking cover, hiding in bathrooms and whatnot,” Chandler recounted.

“People were terrified, people were crying and scared, seeing other people get shot,” he continued. “I believe my brother put his life on the line to prevent that. That’s definitely heroic.”

During his five-hour rampage at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood location, Dear killed police officer Garrett Swasey and 29-year-old mother of two Jennifer Markovsky.

When police apprehended Dear, he revealed to them that the shooting was motivated by his belief that Planned Parenthood is engaged in the illegal sale of fetal organs, a right-wing myth propagated by the anti-choice movement and anti-abortion extremist groups like the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which released a series of misleading videos accusing the health provider of running a ruthless, bloodthirsty trade of embryonic human tissue.

“No more baby parts!” ranted Dear to police.

Anti-abortion conservatives like presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz have tried to defray blame for the shooting, making false claims that Dear was a “transgendered leftist activist.”

However, many are calling on the media and public officials to call Dear what he really is, a right-wing, Christian terrorist.

The Largest Hate Group in America

Since the Republican Party became the party of the South, it has drifted into extremist Southern Politics. No surprise that the core of onservative belief is held together by the bailing wire of racism.

The Republican Party is now America’s largest hate group

The Republican Party has put down the dogwhistle and picked up a megaphone.

After two Bostonians allegedly beat up a homeless Hispanic man in August, one told police he was inspired by Donald Trump’s message that “all these illegals need to be deported.” In response, Trump explained “that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.” Later, he clarified that in no way, of course, does he does condone violence.

In June, Trump kicked off his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug-trafficking criminals. “Some, I assume, are good people,” he added.

On Monday, five people were shot at a Black Lives Matter protest in Minneapolis. Three white men have been arrested in connection with the incident. It is important to emphasize that the investigation is in its very early stages, and it has not been confirmed who did this, or why.

It is, however, clear that leading Republicans have engaged in extraordinarily racist and xenophobic rhetoric that incites and legitimates vigilante violence. On Saturday, Trump fans allegedly attacked a Black Lives Matter protester at a Birmingham rally. “Maybe he should have been roughed up,” Trump said.

It’s not that brazen racism is new to the Republican Party. In 1964, Sen. Strom Thurmond — who ran for president on the segregationist Dixiecrat ticket in 1948 — became a Republican in protest of the 1964 Civil Rights Act’s passage. That year, he worked hard across the then-solidly-Democratic South to support the Republican candidacy of libertarian and militarist Barry Goldwater, a Civil Rights Act opponent.

In 1968, Richard Nixon ran a television ad stoking fear of black riot and student anti-war protests, unsubtly declaring that freedom from street violence at home was in reality the “first civil right.”

It was in 1990, that Republican Sen. Jesse Helms, as the New York Times recounts, “unveiled a nakedly racial campaign advertisement in which a pair of hands belonging to a white job-seeker crumpled a rejection slip as an announcer explained that the job had been given to an unqualified member of a minority.” And it was in 2002 that incoming Republican Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott strongly suggested that America would have been better had de jure segregation been kept in place.

“I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him,” said Lott, a Mississippian. “We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years, either.”

What’s remarkable, and hard to imagine happening today, is that Lott was successfully pressured to resign his leadership position.

The Trump candidacy has combined fears over terrorism, crime and a coming white minority into a spectacular fever dream of dangerous refugees and a criminal threat posed by black people and Hispanic immigrants. That danger, in the right-wing view, is abetted by liberals who criticize police so harshly they are afraid to do their jobs, invite menacing foreigners to live amongst us, and restrain our military because of excessive concern for civilian casualties.

Trump, the white Republican id, has suggested that Muslims be placed on a database and claims, despite it being (or maybe precisely because it is) demonstrably false, that he watched “thousands and thousands of people” in heavily Arab Jersey City “cheering” as “the World Trade Center came tumbling down.”

Ben Carson initially agreed that he too saw this on the news, but generously held back from condemning every single Muslim on earth for it. “I don’t know if, on the basis of that, you can say all Muslims are bad people. I really think that would be a stretch.” He ultimately decided that it had actually been clips from the Middle East that he had seen.

Trump, Carson and neo-McCarthyite Ted Cruz make some very conservative people seem centrist by comparison. These so-called moderate conservatives, after all, claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan, a one-time right-wing challenger to the Republican establishment. Today, mainstream Republican Jeb Bush has suggested that we should prioritize Christian refugees, and Chris Christie has stated that many Black Lives Matter activists “advocate for the murder of police officers.”

It was Trump was who outrageously declared that Syrian refugees could be a “Trojan horse” for terrorism. But every single Republican governor save for Utah’s Gary Herbert has called for barring the refugees from their state….Read the Rest Here

This is Going to End Badly

Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the 60’s white racist attacks on Civil Rights workers were common. The very racism of the right wing led the to badly underestimate what was actually going on in America, and the fact that a lot of white folks were getting pissed off because of their violence as well. Anti War sentiment, as well as anti-racism and the assassinations of MLK and Bobby Kennedy led to the evolution of left wing groups like Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), which spun off groups like the Weathermen, or more officially, the Weather Underground.

Ergo – Violence begets violence. And egged on by racist right wing news commentators and periodicals… Things are headed that way in this country…Again.

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are better ways to handle protest than to have your supporters attack and beat protesters as Trump has done, then crow about it on National News. It appears that Trump is either too stupid, or arrogant to understand that what sits at the bottom of the candle he insists on lighting isn’t the better America…It is the worst of America.

Israel found out the hard way what systemic oppression and violence brings.

The principle of self defense, even involving weapons and bloodshed, has never been condemned, even by Gandhi.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

During the Vietnam War, some anti-war protestors actually committed suicide by setting themselves on fire to protest the war. Islamic groups not infrequently have members willing to strap on explosive devices and blow themselves up in restaurants and gathering places. Just a reminder of how far powerless and oppressed folks will go. And while power comes out of the barrel of a gun…Courage doesn’t.

This Domestic Terrorism against peaceful protestors and over the top racist rhetoric encouraging violence needs to stop.

Trump rallies get rough

Protesters and supporters increasingly mix it up in the most combustible atmosphere on the campaign trail.

Last month, protesters interrupted a Donald Trump rally in Virginia with chants of “Dump Trump” and clashed with his supporters, one of whom was caught on camera spitting in a protester’s face. Another video caught a protester chanting “black power” and a Trump supporter responding with “white power” as a police officer stood between the two.

Multiple groups of Hispanic protesters interrupted the mogul at a rally in Miami, where video showed a Trump supporter dragging a protester to the ground and kicking him. In September, outside a Trump rally in Dallas, dozens of police officers, some on horseback, pushed back hundreds of shouting protesters after breaking up a tense standoff with the real-estate tycoon’s supporters.

On Wednesday, a protester who was once convicted of bringing a bomb to a military facility was arrested at a rally in Massachusetts, and on Saturday video showed supporters punching and kicking a protester who interrupted a rally in Alabama, while Trump himself later suggested that the man had it coming.

Welcome to the most combustible presidential campaign in recent memory.

The candidate’s angry rhetoric — on subjects like undocumented Mexican immigrants, political correctness and “thugs” in Baltimore — has made his run a magnet for disaffected supporters and for identity politics protesters determined to steal the spotlight and disrupt his events. Trump’s relish for confrontation, where other politicians would seek to minimize it, has only fueled the fire.

“Isn’t a Trump rally much more exciting than these other ones?” Trump said on Wednesday as police escorted a protester yelling, “Trump’s a racist” from a rally in Worcester, Massachusetts. “That kind of stuff only adds to the excitement,” he added.

Indeed, many observers say that Trump’s rallies seem to be more turbulent than those of any presidential candidate since the 1960s, with a clash of opposing cultural factions reminiscent of those outside abortion clinics or the Supreme Court on the day a divisive decision is announced.

“Trump brings something that we haven’t really seen on this scale before,” said Erik Bergling, CEO of EPG Security, which protects the Republican National Convention and other political events.

Benjamin Ness, a former Secret Service agent who has protected several presidential candidates and a co-founder of a private security firm, Fidelis Protection Group, that works political events, said Trump’s high profile makes him an attractive target for protesters. “Protesters know they’re going to get more attention at a Trump rally than at a Kasich rally,” said Ness.

While Black Lives Matter protesters have interrupted several events for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders — Democratic candidates who claim to be more sympathetic to their cause — Trump is the only Republican candidate they have regularly targeted to date.

NY Times Obliterates Trump for “Racist Lies”

Wow! What a takedown!

Mr. Trump’s Applause Lies

America has just lived through another presidential campaign week dominated by Donald Trump’s racist lies. Here’s a partial list of false statements: The United States is about to take in 250,000 Syrian refugees; African-Americans are responsible for most white homicides; and during the 9/11 attacks, “thousands and thousands” of people in an unnamed “Arab” community in New Jersey “were cheering as that building was coming down.”

In the Republican field, Mr. Trump has distinguished himself as fastest to dive to the bottom. If it’s a lie too vile to utter aloud, count on Mr. Trump to say it, often. It wins him airtime, and retweets through the roof.

This phenomenon is in fact nothing new. Politicians targeting minorities, foreigners or women have always existed in the culture. And every generation or so, at least one demagogue surfaces to fan those flames.

Here’s Donald Trump on Sunday: When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if it’s a Trojan horse. And I definitely want a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists. We want to go with databases. And we have no choice. We have no idea who’s being sent in here. This could be the — it’s probably not, but it could be the great Trojan horse of all time, where they come in.”

Here’s Joseph McCarthy in 1950: “Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity. The modern champions of communism have selected this as the time, and ladies and gentlemen, the chips are down — they are truly down.”

Here’s Donald Trump last Tuesday: “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before. And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

Dixiecrat George Wallace

Here’s George Wallace in 1963: “We must redefine our heritage, re-school our thoughts in the lessons our forefathers knew so well, in order to function and to grow and to prosper. We can no longer hide our head in the sand and tell ourselves that the ideology of our free fathers is not being attacked and is not being threatened by another idea … for it is.”

Mr. Trump relies on social media to spread his views. This is convenient because there’s no need to respond to questions about his fabrications. That makes it imperative that other forms of media challenge him.

Instead, as Mr. Trump stays at the top of the Republican field, it’s become a full-time job just running down falsehoods like the phony crime statistics he tweeted, which came from a white supremacist group.

Yet Mr. Trump is regularly rewarded with free TV time, where he talks right over anyone challenging him, and doubles down when called out on his lies.

This isn’t about shutting off Mr. Trump’s bullhorn. His right to spew nonsense is protected by the Constitution, but the public doesn’t need to swallow it. History teaches that failing to hold a demagogue to account is a dangerous act. It’s no easy task for journalists to interrupt Mr. Trump with the facts, but it’s an important one.

Racism Will Make You Stupid – Trump Financier and Black Churches

One of the most welcoming places on earth to anybody but perhaps a black man at some of the personality driven joint…is the Black Church. This Trump-Clown denies that with evidence staring him in the face from the very recent mass murders at a black Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Nobody kicked Dylann Roof out of that church, denied him fellowship, or refused to pray, which sadly was the reason he was able to commit is horrific and despicable crime. Indeed, one of the very few places where at least social conservatives find common ground with black folks is in Church, whether in opposing LGBT marriage, or abortion…

Apparently being a bigot isn’t an impediment to getting rich in America – at least if you are white. However, racism IS stupidity – so intelligence isn’t the sole key to getting rich either..This offensive, racist POS should learn something…Like Civil Rights Leaders in the 60’s weren’t outsider troublemakers.

Trump supporter tells CNN: ‘I’d get beat up’ at a black church so black activists deserve it at Trump events


Robert Kiger, the founder of a super PAC supporting Donald Trump for president, said on Monday that he wasn’t surprised that a black man was beaten at a Trump rally because he would expect black people to do the same thing to him if he visited an African-American church.

At a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, Trump supporters were caught on video beating a black man because he interrupted the event by shouting “black lives matter.”

Kiger told CNN’s Carol Costello on Monday that Alabama was the wrong place to protest systemic racism.

“From my perspective, I’m sick and tire of the Black Lives Matter thing,” Kiger complained. “I think it’s a farce. I think they’re there to just disrupt. Look, if they really care about black lives, they need to pick up a banner and go to the South Side of Chicago, where black lives are being slaughtered on a daily basis. If they really care about the African-American community, get up there and do something about it.”

“So they don’t have the right to protest at a Trump rally?” Costello wondered.

“No, they don’t, really,” Kiger relied. “Look, I wouldn’t go into a black church and start screaming white lives matter.”

“Would you be afraid that they would beat you up?” Costello pressed.

“Yeah! I know I’d get beat up,” Kiger insisted, adding that he would be “at least roughed up” by black church members.

Costello attempted to make a point about the way that members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church responded with kindness after they were targeted in a mass shooting.

But the CNN host quickly decided her words were lost on Kiger: “Never mind, I won’t go there.”

“These guys don’t really have a cause,” Kiger said of Black Lives Matter. “I don’t think they really care. If they did, they would go to Baltimore or they’d go to Chicago.”

Trump Uses White Supremacist Data in New Ad

Going back to white supremacist Jared Taylor in the early 90’s, white supremacist groups and the KKK have used manipulated, and/or outright made up data to created racist data supporting a “War on white people”.

Now Trump presents exactly that same data. You can find variations of the same fake dat (and bad math) at a number of conservative sites, including here, regurgitated here at the racist Federalist Lawyers.

Here is a good deconstruction of what racists like Trump, and the white supremacists he quotes and panders to are trying to do from another Blogger. And this Tim Wise piece that I use a  from a few years ago destroying the racist conservative meme (Read it all at this link):

* Only about 1 percent of African Americans — and no more than 2 percent of black males — will commit a violent crime in a given year;

* Even though there are more black-on-white interracial crimes than white-on-black interracial crimes, this fact is not evidence of anti-white racial targeting by black offenders. Rather, it is completely explained by two factors having nothing to do with anti-white bias: namely, the general differences in rates of criminal offending, and the rates at which whites and blacks encounter one another (and thus, have the opportunity to victimize one another). Once these two factors are “controlled for” in social science terms, the actual rates of black-on-white crime are lower than random chance would predict;

* No more than 0.7 percent (seven-tenths of one percent) of African Americans will commit a violent crime against a white person in a given year, and fewer than 0.3 (three-tenths of one percent) of whites will be victimized by a black person in a given year;

* Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002). This means that only 1 in every 500,000 white people will be murdered by a black person in a given year. Although the numbers of black-on-white homicides are higher than the reverse (447 to 218 in 2010), the 218 black victims of white murderers is actually a higher percentage of the black population interracially killed than the 447 white victims of black murderers as a percentage of the white population. In fact, any given black person is 2.75 times as likely to be murdered by a white person as any given white person is to be murdered by an African American.

Now..On to Trumps racism –


Donald Trump Is Using False Statistics to Make a Racist Point

At this point, it should come as no surprise when Donald Trump manipulates the truth to his political advantage. However, presenting false racially-biased statistics a day after an African-American protester was thrown out of one of his events, doesn’t send the best message.

Earlier on Sunday afternoon, Trump did his weird version of a manual retweet of an image depicting a man (in this context, assumed to be black), with a bandana over his face pointing a gun sideways towards a list of wholly fabricated statistics. 

The image alleges that 97 percent of African-Americans were killed by African Americans, while only 1 percent of murdered African-Americans were killed by police. These two statistics are demarcated from the rest in blue and red ink respectively. It also claims 81 percent of whites who are killed are killed by blacks, which is pure race-baiting at its most ignorant. The numbers in this erroneous image are attributed to the “Crime Statistics Bureau – San Francisco,” and reflect 2015 data.

For one thing, a “Crime Statistics Bureau” does not exist. The FBI is responsible for this data and they have yet to release a report on 2015, because, well 2015 is not over yet. 

Secondly, whoever made that image did so with the intent of lying about the percentage of white Americans killed by black Americans. In 2014, that number was 14 percent, not 81 percent. 

Additionally, in the graphic, only 16 percent of whites are killed by other whites. In the same FBI report, it clearly states that 82.3 percent of whites are in fact killed by other whites, which is very similar to the number of blacks killed by blacks (89.9 percent).

Finally, when the Daily Beast reverse google image searched the picture, the only yielded results were attributed to YouTube videos in Arabic, which featured a duplicated image of the man in the picture Trump shared. 

This explicit truth-bending is only compounded by the fact that a Black Lives Matter protester named Mercutio Southall Jr. was kicked out of a Trump rally in Alabama on Saturday. 

“Get him the hell out of here, will you please?” Trump requested at the rally. “Get him out of here. Throw him out!”

Southall at one point was on the ground being kicked and punched by several white men in attendance. When asked about the violent incident this morning onFox & Friends, Trump said “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing. I have a lot of fans, and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy who was a trouble-maker who was looking to make trouble.”

The Daily Beast has reached out for comment to Southall Jr., who said he was repeatedly called a “nigger” and a “monkey” at the event. Meanwhile in a Facebook message, his father asked me for some time before speaking about yesterday’s events. 

The Trump campaign has not responded to a question from the Daily Beast about whether Trump himself retweeted the image and where he got the information within it.

Latin Grammys – “Don’t Vote for Racists”

Lat two elections, about 73% of Hispanics voted for Obama…With the latest round of “We hate brown folks” by the right…That ought to be up to 95% next election.

2015 Latin Grammys Get Political As Artists Urge Latinos: ‘Don’t Vote For Racists’

Natalia Lafourcade was the big winner Thursday at the Latin Grammy Awards, making good on four of her five nominations for her album “Hasta la Raiz.” But the Mexican singer-songwriter lost out on the top prize, album of the year, which went to Dominican bachata artist Juan Luis Guerra for “Todo Tiene su Hora.”

Lafourcade still claimed two of the night’s most prestigious awards, song of the year and record of the year for the title track of “Hasta la Raiz.”

“My friend, how amazing that we made this disc together,” Lafourcade said to her friend and collaborator Leonel Garcia, with whom she shared three nominations as cowriters of the album’s title track.

The biggest night in Latin music was presented in Spanish and English and featured a mix of rhythms, from alternative to mariachi.

Colorful performance mash-ups underscored the mix: Jamaican artist Omi shared the stage with reggaeton singer Nicky Jam, and Will Smith returned to his rap roots, performing “Fiesta” with Colombian trop-rockers Bomba Estereo.

The Latin Grammy Awards were broadcast live on Univision from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. For the first time, the telecast also reached viewers in China. Actresses Jacqueline Bracamontes and Roselyn Sanchez hosted the three-hour ceremony…

Rita Moreno delighted the audience when she busted out some reggaeton dance moves, belying her 84 years.

Things also got political, thanks to rockers Mana and Los Tigres del Norte, who urged fellow Hispanics to get out the vote.

“This is how we can use our power,” said Mana vocalist Fher as the group accepted their award for pop/rock album. “We have to exercise our right to vote, and vote for those who will give more quality (of life) to Latinos, to the candidates. Use your strength, Latinos!”

Los Tigres del Norte went further, hoisting a banner at the end of their performance that read, “Latinos united, don’t vote for the racists.”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump drew ire from Hispanics and others when he said Mexican immigrants are rapists who bring drugs into the United States. Univision was among the companies that cut ties with Trump after the remarks.
