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.”

These confederate Monuments

Turns out, the State with the most confederate Memorials is my home State, Virginia. Some of the Historical reasons is tha a good part of the Civil War was fought here, a number of the key military Generals (Lee, Jackson, Stuart) were Virginians, and the fact that Richmond was the Capital of the confederacy. The descendants of those families still live here.There has been a push to remove the Monuments or rename buildings and roads named after them through the years – but the connection to Virginia born people tends to moderate the responses from both sides. At least it did until Charlottesville where a bunch of outsiders came in in their Nazi gear to wreak havoc.

One of those dots on the map is near where I live, and I have seen the monument. It is to the local soldiers who died in the “War Between the States”. The fact that they all fought as confederates, well…Is what it is.The family names of those guys live on today as part of the local population. Hard for me, at least, to work up any ire over this. Let it be.

The State was as segregated under Jim Crow as any in the South. Let it be. You can get a confederate license  plate in Virginia by joining the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Let it be.

There is a historical context in Virginia because that is where a large part of the war was, and that was where these folks fought. There simply is no relevance to a Lee, Jackson, or Stuart statue in any state other than Virginia, Maryland (Antietam), and Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where they fought. In Virginia at several of the Battlefields there are still bullets, cannonballs, and bones lightly buried in the battlefields where they fought.So this is part of our living history.

So I am not sure all of these need to come down – and support moving some to historically significant places. You want to move those confederate generals from Monument Avenue in Richmond to the Battlefields at Bull Run, Manassas, Fredericksburg, or Cold Harbor…I won’t object at all.

So what I am arguing here is a common-sense approach…Although I still never expect to see a statue of Sherman in Georgia.

Virginia’s 204 confederate Monuments and Memorials

Symbols of the Confederacy still dot the South

Highest density

Virginia, the birthplace of Robert E. Lee, is home to more than 220 Confederate symbols, including three military bases named for Confederate war heroes. Texas and Georgia have the second- and third-most symbols, at 178 and 163, respectively.

Schools

109 public schools are named for Confederate icons, including Gens. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and J.E.B. Stuart, and the president of the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis. Of these schools, nearly 25 percent have a student body that is primarily black, while almost a tenth of the schools have a student body that is more than 90 percent black.

Monuments and statues

Of the more than 700 statues and monuments, more than 25 percent are located in Virginia and Georgia alone. Texas, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi combined make up an additional 30 percent. Nearly 77 percent were built or dedicated before 1950, while 6 percent were built or rededicated during the era of the civil rights movement. Four percent were built or rededicated after the year 2000.

Roads, highways and bridges

From General Lee Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, to Jefferson Davis Highway in San Diego, California, nearly 500 roads, highways and bridges memorialize the Confederacy.

Counties and cities

There are 80 counties and cities named for Confederates, including Fort Davis, Texas, and Lee County, North Carolina, among others.

Embedded Reporter in Charlottesville – The Chumph’s “Good People”

Those who aren’t familiar with the white-right need to understand exactly what these people are…

I have run into the guys, the last time resulting in said neo-nazi winding up with him putting his head through a plate glass window after making some remarks…Unfortunate that.

VICE’s Charlottesville documentary on Trump’s “fine people” will terrify you

“Charlottesville: Race and Terror” shows the verbal and physical violence of Charlottesville’s white supremacists

For anyone, including President Donald Trump, who thinks there are two legitimate sides to the Charlottesville riots or “fine people” attempting to preserve history mixed amongst the white supremacists who marched in that Virginia city this weekend, VICE has a rather ugly wakeup call.

VICE News’ “Charlottesville: Race and Terror” episode opens with images from the white nationalist protest on Friday in Charlottesville. Red-faced white men hold Tiki torches ablaze and chant “white lives matter,” “Jews will not replace us,” and “blood and soil.”

Counter-protestors meet them at the Gen. Robert E. Lee statue, which Trump claimed was the sole reason for the alt-right protest. Police stand back, people are maced. When a VICE reporter asks white supremacist and speaker of “Unite the Right,” Christopher Cantwell, who he was maced by, he responds, “by Commies.”

“I’m here to spread ideas, talk,” Cantwell says, “in hopes that somebody more capable will come along and do that, somebody like Donald Trump who does not give his daughter to a Jew.”

“So, Donald Trump, but like, more racist?” VICE’s reporter questions. “A lot more racist than Donald Trump,” Cantwell responds. “I don’t think that you could feel about race the way I do and watch that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl, okay?”

Video from Saturday’s protests show Black Lives Matter and anti-facist protestors with backpacks and signs. The white supremacists facing off against them pack helmets, shields and blunt weapons. After authorities force the crowd to disperse by police and declare a state of emergency, Cantwell says, “We’re here obeying the law,” he continues, “and the criminals are over there getting their way.”

“So you’re the true nonviolent protestors?” the reporter asks. “We’re not nonviolent, we’ll fuckin’ kill people if we have to.” Soon, Cantwell’s pledge becomes chilling and devastatingly prescient.

Horrifying footage shows a car ramming through counter-protestors, bodies flying and then bodies on the ground. “We got hit by a car,” one woman screams in disbelief. VICE’s reporter on the scene seems quietly devastated as she talks to the medic who tried, and failed, to save Heather Heyer’s life.

In a final interview with Cantwell after the weekend’s riots end, he says, “We knew that we were going to meet a lot of resistance. The fact that nobody on our side died, I’d go ahead and call that points for us.” He sits next to a bed strewn with no less than four firearms he packed for the protests.

Of Heyer’s death, Cantwell says “I think it was more than justified,” he says. “I think a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here, frankly.”

As frightening as the weekend’s violence was, local activist Tanesha Hudson doesn’t find it shocking, especially for black people who live in Charlottesville. “This is what we deal with everyday being African-American,” she said, “and this has always beenthe reality of Charlottesville.”
