Trump attacks black CEO who resigned from White House council over response to Charlottesville protests

Kenneth Frazier resigned from Trump’s American Manufacturing Council after he felt Trump failed to denounce racism

It took President Donald Trump less than an hour to criticize Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier for resigning Monday from the White House’s American Manufacturing Council. Meanwhile, it’s been two days since white nationalists and neo-Nazis overtook a college town in Virginia, and Trump has yet to publicly condemn them.

Frazier, an African-American, announced on Twitter Monday that it was Trump’s inadequate response to Charlottesville that forced him to resign from the president’s council.

“Our country’s strength stems from its diversity and the contributions made by men and women of different faiths, races, sexual orientations and political beliefs,” Frazier said in a statement. “America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which run counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”

“As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism,” Frazier added.

Trump wasted little time Monday to hit back at Frazier for his moral stance.

Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!

A psychological analysis of Trump supporters has uncovered 5 key traits about them

The lightning-fast ascent and political invincibility of Donald Trump has left many experts baffled and wondering, “How did we get here?” Any accurate and sufficient answer to that question must not only focus on Trump himself, but also on his uniquely loyal supporters. Given their extreme devotion and unwavering admiration for their highly unpredictable and often inflammatory leader, some have turned to the field of psychology for scientific explanations based on precise quantitative data and established theoretical frameworks.

Although analyses and studies by psychologists and neuroscientists have provided many thought-provoking explanations for his enduring support, the accounts of different experts often vary greatly, sometimes overlapping and other times conflicting. However insightful these critiques may be, it is apparent that more research and examination is needed to hone in on the exact psychological and social factors underlying this peculiar human behavior.

In a recent review paper published in the Journal of Social and Political Psychology, Psychologist and UC Santa Cruz professor Thomas Pettigrew argues that five major psychological phenomena can help explain this exceptional political event.

1.     Authoritarian Personality Syndrome

Authoritarianism refers to the advocacy or enforcement of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom, and is commonly associated with a lack of concern for the opinions or needs of others. Authoritarian personality syndrome—a well-studied and globally-prevalent condition—is a state of mind that is characterized by belief in total and complete obedience to one’s authority. Those with the syndrome often display aggression toward outgroup members, submissiveness to authority, resistance to new experiences, and a rigid hierarchical view of society. The syndrome is often triggered by fear, making it easy for leaders who exaggerate threat or fear monger to gain their allegiance.

Although authoritarian personality is found among liberals, it is more common among the right-wing around the world. President Trump’s speeches, which are laced with absolutist terms like “losers” and “complete disasters,” are naturally appealing to those with the syndrome.

While research showed that Republican voters in the U.S. scored higher than Democrats on measures of authoritarianism before Trump emerged on the political scene, a 2016 Politico survey found that high authoritarians greatly favored then-candidate Trump, which led to a correct prediction that he would win the election, despite the polls saying otherwise.

2.     Social dominance orientation

Social dominance orientation (SDO)—which is distinct but related to authoritarian personality syndrome—refers to people who have a preference for the societal hierarchy of groups, specifically with a structure in which the high-status groups have dominance over the low-status ones. Those with SDO are typically dominant, tough-minded, and driven by self-interest.

In Trump’s speeches, he appeals to those with SDO by repeatedly making a clear distinction between groups that have a generally higher status in society (White), and those groups that are typically thought of as belonging to a lower status (immigrants and minorities).

2016 survey study of 406 American adults published this year in the journal Personality and Individual Differences found that those who scored high on both SDO and authoritarianism were those who intended to vote for Trump in the election.

3.     Prejudice

It would be grossly unfair and inaccurate to say that every one of Trump’s supporters have prejudice against ethnic and religious minorities, but it would be equally inaccurate to say that many do not. It is a well-known fact that the Republican party, going at least as far back to Richard Nixon’s “southern strategy,” used strategies that appealed to bigotry, such as lacing speeches with “dog whistles”—code words that signaled prejudice toward minorities that were designed to be heard by racists but no one else.

While the dog whistles of the past were more subtle, Trump’s are sometimes shockingly direct. There’s no denying that he routinely appeals to bigoted supporters when he calls Muslims “dangerous” and Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “murderers,” often in a blanketed fashion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a new study has shown that support for Trump is correlated with a standard scale of modern racism.Read the Rest Here

Foreign Students Flock to Canada – Leave US

With the threat of being accosted on any street corner or being assaulted by a Chumph racist bigot while minding their own business…Can you blame them?

Trump’s biggest fans? Canadian universities

Students at Toronto UniversityCanadian universities are seeing a surge in applications from overseas students, with the country’s liberal, migrant-friendly image appearing to be an important attraction.

Students who might once have headed for the United States now seem to be reconsidering and seeing Canada as a North American alternative.

The University of Toronto, one of Canada’s top-ranked universities, has seen interest rising sharply, including a 57% increase in applications from India.

This interest has converted into acceptances, says the university – with an overall 20% increase in overseas students accepting places for the autumn.

Wilfrid Laurier University says it has had a 32% increase in overseas students and McMaster University has seen an annual rise of 33%.

This is a valuable market, with overseas students bringing in tuition fees and local spending power. A study last week suggested that overseas students were worth $36bn (£28bn) per year to the US economy.

Tolerant image

But Canadian universities are seizing an opportunity from the Trump administration in the US and the Brexit vote in the UK to present themselves as a more outward-looking alternative.

There are more than 350,000 overseas students already in Canada, with research from the Canadian Bureau for International Education suggesting that the image of a “tolerant and non-discriminatory society” is a major attraction.

Canada can offer top-ranked universities, he says, but the country is also sending a “message about being open to the world”.

Prof Sargent says that half of the population of Toronto is non-Canadian born and that Canada’s strategy has been to “attract the brightest and the best” from around the world.

A spokeswoman for the University of Montreal says: “Of course, it is also difficult to ignore what is going on south of our border.

“The US political climate might indeed be one reason why more students are choosing to come to Montreal and Canada generally.”

The idea of an “open and welcoming city” has a strong appeal to students coming to Montreal, she says.

“They can have a North American study experience here, in a safe environment.”

Best student city

This year saw Montreal getting top place in the QS Best Student Cities rankings, replacing Paris which had been in first place for the four previous years.

Among the measures were Montreal’s access to employers, safety, pollution, desirability for student life and sense of tolerance.

Another advantage for this part of Canada is that it can offer courses in both English and French.

There is also a rising stream of US students heading to Canada.

Apart from any political considerations, those heading over the border will also be attracted by tuition fees, which can be cheaper for US students than studying at home, even at overseas student rates.

But the US university system remains a powerful magnet for overseas students, with numbers rising to more than a million students last year, with almost 330,000 from China alone.

This annual increase, up by about 7% in 2016, was valued as being worth another £3bn to the US economy.

Black Professor Forced to Cancel Tour After Faux News Inspired Death Threats

Faux New riling up the crazies against black folks…Again.

Professor forced to cancel book tour after Fox News fans threaten to lynch her for ripping Trump

A black professor was forced to cancel the rest of her book tour after a Fox News report prompted dozens of death threats against her — and she accuses the conservative network of inciting its viewers to violence.

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor delivered the commencement address last month at Hampshire College, and Fox News aired a portion of the 20-minute speech Sunday that called attention to her criticism of President Donald Trump, reported The Stranger.

Taylor, a Princeton University professor of African-American studies, described the president as a “racist, sexist, megalomaniac,” and the Fox News report suggested that she was encouraging activists to lawlessly thwart the Trump agenda.

After the report on her “Anti-POTUS tirade” aired, Taylor said she has received more than 50 hateful and threatening emails — some of which were issued with such specificity that she canceled portions of a tour to promote her new book, “From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation.”

“Shortly after the Fox story and video were published, my work email was inundated with vile and violent statements. I have been repeatedly called ‘n****r,’ ‘b*tch,’ ‘c*nt,’ ‘dyke,’ ‘she-male,’ and ‘coon’ — a clear reminder that racial violence is closely aligned with gender and sexual violence,” Taylor said. “I have been threatened with lynching and having the bullet from a .44 Magnum put in my head.”

She accused the conservative network of airing the report in an attempt to silence her and other Trump critics.

“I am not a newsworthy person,” Taylor said. “Fox did not run this story because it was ‘news,’ but to incite and unleash the mob-like mentality of its fringe audience, anticipating that they would respond with a deluge of hate-filled emails — or worse. The threat of violence, whether it is implied or acted on, is intended to intimidate and to silence.”

Taylor placed the threats into context with recent violent acts by white supremacists, including the fatal stabbings of two men on a commuter train in Portland, Oregon.

“Their side uses the threat of violence and intimidation because they cannot compete in the field of politics, ideas, and organizing,” she said. “The true strength of our side has not yet been expressed in its size and breadth, and so they believe they are winning. We have to change this dynamic and begin to build a massive movement against racism, sexism, and bigotry in this country. I remain undaunted in my commitment to that project.”

Trumpazoid Neutron Dance… Getting Laughed off the Air

First up on the Chumph tap dance parade – Hillary is a bigot for condemning racists…Chumph surrogate Scotties Nell Hughes.

The question in my mind is…Why is CNN paying this racist POS?

Scottie Nell Hughes: Hillary is the ‘definition of bigotry’ because she’s biased against racists

CNN contributor and Trump campaign surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes accused Hillary Clinton of the meeting the “definition of bigotry” for speaking out against racists and white supremacy.

During a Sunday panel discussion on CNN, MTV correspondent Jamil Smith argued that Trump’s hiring of Breitbart chief Steve Bannon showed that GOP presidential campaign was a “rebranding of white supremacy.”

“I would say that [Breitbart is] part of the white supremacist machine,” Smith asserted. “They are trying to make sure these views become mainstream. And I think, through Trump, they are finding a way to do that.”

Hughes, however, accused the media of “redefining what fair means in this election.”

“Hillary Clinton’s problem, she’s having a problem with engagement,” Hughes opined. “And she’s worried about in November, the same very valuable demographic of the African-American vote is not going to be as engaged as they were in 2008 and 2012 to get out and vote.”

According to the pundit, Trump had been right to call Clinton a “bigot” because the term was not only about racial discrimination.

“Bigotry, if you look at the definition, it’s about someone who’s small-minded and sits there and directs hate towards a certain group,” she explained. “Hillary Clinton’s speech [attacking alt-right conservatives] was all about hate towards a group that, while my fellow counterpart might consider them to be very racist, it’s the exact opposite.”

“These are God-fearing, baby-loving, gun-toting, military-supporting, school choice-advocating Americans!” Hughes added. “And just because maybe there might be some, a part of a very small fringe group [of white supremacists] that read Breitbart — by sitting there and saying the entire website is white supremacy is kind of ridiculous as saying just because you have people that are anarchists and communists that read the Huffington Post, calling that newspaper establishment, [is like] saying that they’re pro-anarchy and they’re against the United States government.”

Smith clarified Breitbart’s role in promoting white supremacy.

“What they present is the view of the white supremacist mentality through their coverage,” he observed. “It’s not necessarily saying, ‘Well, everyone who works there is a white supremacist.’ I don’t know that.”

“The point is to say, what kind of viewpoint did they reflect? And it’s undeniable that they reflect a white supremacist view if you looked over their coverage over the last several years.”

Then we have Trump Lawn Ornament Katrina Pierson…

Getting laughed at …again

Roll the Lawn Jockey

Chumph Lawn Jockey Alert!

One of the standard techniques used by the race pimps like Hannity and O’Reilly on Faux News is to bring on one of their Lawn Jockeys to sing from the veranda, and to bring on a generally unknown black “liberal” to oppose them in a “debate”. Most of the time, it is a setup. The Liberal black person is chosen either because they are soft spoken, or at worst, someone who is unaware of the issues.That way it is easily to bloviate over the black liberal, or verbally intimidate them – which is a favorite tactic of O’Rielly.

Sometimes, soft spoken black liberal guest doesn’t follow the script – resulting in a very difficult time for the bought and paid for Uncle Tom.

Lesson…Don’t try and play Leo Terrell for a patsy.

Enjoy!

Tattoos On Their Foreheads

Tavis Smiley responds to Bill Reilly’s latest racist remarks…

 

Two years ago O’Racist claimed pretty much the same thing in an interview of Sen Paul Ryan…That time moving the tattoos to black folk’s necks…

Larry Wilmore Responds…

“Bill O’Reilly is afraid of this black man”: Roland Martin challenges Fox host to debate “anytime, any day, anywhere”

“You’re not going to sit here and make some stupid comments that ‘most black youth are ill-educated,'” Martin said

On Tuesday, NewsOne Now host Roland Martin weighed in on Bill O’Reilly’s claim that African- and Latino-Americans are unemployable because “they have tattoos on their foreheads,” saying that he would be willing to challenge O’Reilly to a debate “anytime, any day, anywhere.”

One of the NewsOne Now panelists, Angela Rye, complained that “Donald Trump did not push back — he allowed that foolishness to continue. If you want to be president of America, as [Obama] said president ‘of all Americans,’ you need to be able to push back on the stereotypes and the bigotry.”

Instead, Trump allowed it “to be spewed out of this cable host’s mouth.”

Martin jumped in, saying “you’re not going to sit here and make some stupid comments saying ‘most black youth are ill-educated,’ but then you don’t want to have a real discussion about the education system in America. You are not going to sit here and say they’ve got tattoos on their forehead, which is pretty damn stupid.”

He then challenged O’Reilly to a debate, but noted that there’s little chance of that happening. “Bill is afraid of this black man,” he said, but still invited him to debate “in your studio, on the street, at Sylvia’s.” If he really wants to have this conversation, Martin concluded, “let’s roll.”

Anti-Gay Law To Cost Raleigh NC $24 million

Something between 3-5% of Americans are LGBT. Getting hard numbers on that is difficult because of the fear of persecution.

However, the majority of Americans just can’t swallow the idea of laws persecuting LGBT people. Which means that in the states which have passed so called “religious freedom” laws, there may be significant economic consequences. Many of these states, located in the Bible belted Red Zone, are states which are poor to being with, get far more in tax benefits and monies from the Federal Government than they pay out, and are desperately trying to get corporations to move facilities into their states to improve the economy.

Shit like re-segregating is going to blunt, if not derail that economic growth as company after company either refuses to go there, or pulls out.

And we are not even talking about the pullout of Federal funding…Yet.

Tourism board: Raleigh set to lose $24 million thanks to GOP’s anti-trans bathroom law

A report released by the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau this week found that the local economy has already lost out on hundreds of thousands of dollars due to North Carolina’s HB2 bathroom law.

After Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed the law on March 24 to prevent cities like Charlotte from granting bathroom rights to transgender people, companies like PayPal announced plans to move jobs out of state.

On Monday, a report from Wake County’s tourism agency said that the Raleigh area had already lost $732,000 in economic benefits, citing numerous cancellations of conferences and events, The News & Observer reported.

The Raleigh Visitors Bureau warned that the local economy could lose out on $24 million in economic benefits if the law is not repealed. According to the report, 16 other groups were considering relocating their events outside the state.

The city’s biggest loss could be a four-year contract for an undisclosed sports tournament that would have brought 51,000 people and $4.5 million in benefits to the area each year.

“We just felt that it’s not in the best interest of our membership to go someplace that’s not inclusive,” Johnstone Supply spokesperson Janet Tipton told The News & Observer.

This just in –

Deutsche Bank Won’t Expand In North Carolina Because Of Anti-LGBT Law

It will keep the 900 jobs already in the state, but won’t add the 250 more it had planned on.

Add Deutsche Bank to the list of corporations putting pressure on North Carolina politicians to back away from encouraging LGBT discrimination.

The bank announced on Tuesday that it’s freezing its plans to add 250 jobs at its software development center in Cary, North Carolina, as a result of the anti-LGBT law the state legislature passed in late March.

“We take our commitment to building inclusive work environments seriously,” Deutsche Bank’s co-CEO John Cryan said in a statement.

The German bank currently has about 900 employees at its office in Cary. It doesn’t plan to move the jobs already located there, but says it won’t include North Carolina in its expansion plans through 2017, as it had originally announced back in September.

Why Conservative Racists Hate Political Correctness

How do you know when you have destroyed a right wing racist’s argument? They start squealing about PC. Right wing bigots are constantly trying to come up with replacements for the N-word. As each of these terms, words, or concepts is outed for what it is, the haters become more frustrated.

Welcome to The New Jim Crow racism…

Montel Williams Goes to War Over GOP Racism

Ol’ Montel is definitely getting charged up…Amazing that he has finally realized exactly what he has been supporting all these years.

Montel Williams goes to war against “paranoid” GOP “bigotry” and takes Fox News down with it

Navy veteran and talk show host Montel Williams wrote an opinion piece for Fox News in which he wondered whether the tenor current GOP primaries means that “if America’s best days are behind us.”

“[W]hat I’ve seen since the Paris attacks has shaken me to my core — to a point in which I no longer recognize the America I devoted 22 years of my life to protect,” he wrote.

“In the past, I could rest easier, knowing the overwhelming majority of Americans would see this for what it is — bigotry — playing to the irrational fears of a portion of the population to curry favor, which takes a page out of a very dangerous playbook the world answered with ‘never again’ some 60 years ago,” Williams added. “The fact is, we can no longer rest easy because polls show a huge majority of the Republican electorate currently supports Trump, Carson or Cruz.”

Statements like these have not gone over well with supporters of candidates on the GOP ticket. In the comments to the editorial, Williams has been informed that he doesn’t “like hearing the truth [because he] belongs to a failed race,” and “Montel is high on Obama crack!” On Williams’ Facebook page, people have opined that it’s “it’s too bad MS hasn’t taken you off this earth yet,” and that he’s just expressing “that ‘offended’ mentality again.

Williams told Salon that he “was thrilled that Fox agreed to run the piece as I’m sure it hasn’t gone over well with many. I’m about speaking truth and what I say has never changed based on the audience I’m speaking to.”

“I wrote this piece because I’m at my wits end with the GOP,” he added. “I still consider myself conservative, but I long ago abandoned the party because I could see it being dragged down a path of intolerance and I see no place for myself, as a black American in the GOP proper, much less one who refuses to tell women what to do with their bodies, one who is a proud but responsible gun owner, one who as a matter of faith and principle cannot abide bigotry whether it be toward Muslims, LGBT individuals or anyone else.”

He was moved to write the piece after learning of the hate crime perpetrated against a Muslim cab driver last Thursday. “When I read about a Moroccan cabbie being shot by a fare after being quizzed about being Muslim on Thanksgiving, I had to to speak,” he said. “That Moroccan cabbie, an immigrant, so eloquently described what it means to him to be in America that I had to speak.”

Racism as it Impacts Asian Americans

This article provides several historical facts I was unaware of, including the forced immigration of a group of Southeast Asian sailors to America in the 1500’s. Chinese and Korean serfs were imported to the Americas in the 17th and 18th century to work on the plantations in conditions best described as de facto slavery in the West Indies, and in America, as in fact – due to famine and war in their home countries, they were cheaper than buying slaves. Many of those brought here stayed, after escaping their “indenture”…That is, if they survived in an environment where there were fatality rates as high as 20%.

 

The Two Asian Americas

1928, an Indian immigrant named Vaishno Das Bagai rented a room in San Jose, turned on the gas, and ended his life. He was thirty-seven. He had come to San Francisco thirteen years earlier with his wife and two children, “dreaming and hoping to make this land my own.” A dapper man, he learned English, wore three-piece suits, became a naturalized citizen, and opened a general store and import business on Fillmore Street, in San Francisco. But when Bagai tried to move his family into a home in Berkeley, the neighbors locked up the house, and the Bagais had to turn their luggage trucks back. Then, in 1923, Bagai found himself snared by anti-Asian laws: the Supreme Court ruled that South Asians, because they were not white, could not become naturalized citizens of the United States. Bagai was stripped of his status. Under the California Alien Land Law, of 1913—a piece of racist legislation designed to deter Asians from encroaching on white businesses and farms—losing that status also meant losing his property and his business. The next blow came when he tried to visit India. The United States government advised him to apply for a British passport.

According to Erika Lee’s “The Making of Asian America,” published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act, signed into law on October 3, 1965, this swarm of circumstances undid Bagai. In the room in San Jose, he left a suicide note addressed, in an act of protest, to the San Francisco Examiner. The paper published it under the headline “Here’s Letter to the World from Suicide.” “What have I made of myself and my children?” Bagai wrote. “We cannot exercise our rights. Humility and insults, who is responsible for all this? Me and the American government. Obstacles this way, blockades that way, and bridges burnt behind.”

Bagai could have been speaking for the mass of Asian-Americans—Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Koreans, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Hmong, and Filipinos—who escaped colonialism or economic hardship at home only to encounter a country rancid with racism. Racism, as Lee shows, was the unifying factor in the Asian-American experience, bringing together twenty-three distinct immigrant groups, from very different parts of the world. It determined the jobs that Asians were able to acquire, the sizes of their families, and their self-esteem in America. If Asian America exists, it is because of systemic racism.

A few weeks ago, Donald Trump climbed a stage and crassly mimicked a Japanese (or was it a Chinese?) accent, in supposed admiration of the old stereotype that the Japanese are soulless, rapacious businessmen. This was just after Jeb Bush defended his use of the term “anchor babies” by saying that it was “more related to Asian people” than to Latinos. In September, the F.B.I. finally dropped all charges against Dr. Xi Xiaoxing, a Chinese-American physicist at Temple University arrested, in May, for passing on sensitive superconductor technology to China. The F.B.I. had claimed it had blueprints of the technology, but when independent experts examined the blueprints, they found that they weren’t for the device in question. “I don’t expect them to understand everything I do,” Xi told the Times. “But the fact that they don’t consult with experts and then charge me? Put my family through all this? Damage my reputation? They shouldn’t do this. This is not a joke. This is not a game.”

These are just a few recent stories, of course, but they stand in for many others. Asian-Americans are still regarded as “other” by many of their fellow-citizens. And yet one finds among some Asian-Americans a reluctance to call out racist acts, in part because of their supposed privilege in comparison with other minority groups. Meanwhile, much of the history of Asians in America, a history that now spans nearly half a millennium, has been forgotten.

The first Asians to come to North America, Lee writes, were Filipino sailors. They came aboard Spanish ships in the late fifteen-hundreds, and were subjected to such a torrent of vermin and filth on these vessels that half died en route; when they got to colonial Mexico, many refused to cross the Pacific again. They settled in Acapulco and married local women. Asian America began in desperation.

Many of the immigrants in the seventeen-hundreds and eighteen-hundreds came from lands sucked dry by colonialism, such as the Guangdong province, in China, reeling from drought and famine after the Opium Wars. Lured by contractors and agents, Chinese, Indian, Korean, and Japanese men travelled across the globe to toil on sugar and tobacco plantations in the British West Indies, Hawaii, and the Deep South as indentured laborers or “coolies,” working ten hours a day, six days a week, for five or more years before gaining freedom. (Some Asian women were hired as indentured servants, too, mostly in an attempt to pacify the men.) When the men gained their freedom, though, they often chose not to return to their homes—either, Lee writes, out of shame (their earnings didn’t match their boasts to people back home) or because they had married locals during their lonely sojourns and couldn’t take them back. Lee cites a few of their melancholic letters to family members, but one wishes she had gone deeper into the psychology of exile: many immigrants subsist on a diet of denial, believing, sometimes until their deaths, that they will go back.

From the initial ports of entry, Asians, particularly the Chinese and Filipinos, radiated outward, so that, in the mid-eighteen-hundreds, there was a Filipino fishing village in Louisiana and a Chinatown in Havana, as well as active Chinese communities along much of the West Coast. Lee describes life and labor in these communities well, explaining, for instance, why Chinese immigrants got into the laundry business during the Gold Rush. (At the time, it was cheaper for someone living in San Francisco to have clothes washed in Honolulu than to get them laundered in the city. Chinese immigrants seized the opportunity that provided.) Lee is particularly acute on the racism these immigrants endured. Chinese were called, at various times, “rats,” “beasts,” and “swine.” The president of the American Federation of Labor said that the presence of the Chinese in America was a matter of “Meat vs. Rice—American Manhood vs Asiatic Coolieism.” Kaiser Wilhelm woke from a nightmare in 1895 and commissioned a hideous painting showing the archangel Michael beset by heathen hordes from the East—the famed “yellow peril.” When more Chinese started coming after the Gold Rush, employed on large projects like the Pacific Railroad, anti-Chinese sentiment became shrill. In 1882, on the basis that Chinese workers undercut wages, Congress passed the Chinese Exclusion Act, banning low-skilled and family immigration, and making the Chinese, in Lee’s words, “the first illegal immigrants.” (As Jiayang Fan noted in a recent piece for this magazine, “The act, which wasn’t repealed until 1943, remains the only federal law ever to exclude a group of people by nationality.”) Special agents known as “Chinese catchers” appeared on the border with Mexico, and the Secretary of Labor despaired that “not even a Chinese wall” along the border would stop Chinese immigration. In 1871, in the largest mass lynching in American history, seventeen Chinese men were murdered by a mob of five hundred, in Los Angeles…Read the Rest Here

Pa Republican Invites White Supremacist to Testify

White Supremacist…White Nationalist…Getting so you can’t tell you racists without a scorecard with all that racist Projection thing going on…

PA Rep: Don’t Call My Witness A White Supremacist, He’s A White Nationalist!

Without mentioning Vandervoort’s name, the committee chair Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) defended the invitation and rebutted the Democrat’s claims.

“The comments that she made about some alleged white supremacist being in our meeting was outrageous,” Metcalfe said Thursday, according to the Patriot News. “It was an email put out alleging that somebody was a white nationalist, which is quite a bit different from a white supremacist. To say somebody is a nationalist and for the independence of their country and a patriot to defending their country, is a lot different from saying somebody is a racist.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center has described Vandervoort as being tied “to white nationalist groups.” But, as the Patriot-News noted, the center characterizes white nationalist groups as espousing “white supremacist or white separatist ideologies.”

Metcalfe also said, “For whoever said the man was white to begin with, that person was actually the racist — tying his skin color to his patriotism and what he stands up for for his country.”

Uncle Tom Jason Riley…Again

I see Uncle Jason is at it again, on his knees betwixt the thighs of his racist white Massas, repeating racist lies with lips pursed, for perhaps, just another chance to please.

The truth is that BlackLivesMatter grew organically from the murder of Trayvon, and before that the Jena 6. It wasn’t a single event, in a vacuum which metastasized into a movement. While a well publicized and documented series of murders of unarmed black men, women, and teens has fueled the movement, and for the first time, forced the American public to face the truth through irrefutable video evidence. The issue is really based around the nexus of the War on Black People (Drugs), the carceral state, and the disparate impact on the black community. DWB isn’t something that just the poor in the inner city have experienced. The videotaped murders, forcing for the first time accountability and prosecution of the Policemen perpetrators, are just the extreme case of racial based policing – and part of an overall malaise of militarization of the pollice affecting the entire country.

The WSJ’s wholly owned mental slave, and morally destitute Lawn Jockey, sets up three strawmen favored by the racist right in his efforts to please –

  1. That it is only about black folks. Like the Civil Rights movement Uncle Jason’s Massas fought against with sticks, bats, dogs, firehoses, guns and bombs to keep those “colored” folks in their place, the new racist mythos that it is only about black folks is a strawman scattered by the whirlwind that accountable policing serves all communities.
  2. That it is only about the murder of Mike Brown. BLM coalesced starting around Ferguson, and the well documented police and “justice system” rape of the community – but gained traction when case after case of police abuse and murder, without any legal consequence hit the press through the irrefutable evidence of citizen videos.  Had the movement just been about Mike Brown – it would have died a long time ago.
  3. “trigger happy cops”…The WSJ’s race whore is trying to conflate the white right’s favorite “black on black killings” with accountability of our public funded police force which is supposed to serve and protect the community. That somehow the fact that gangbangers murder gangbangers over drugs is justification for the murder by police of unarmed people going about their legal and legitimate business on the street. They didn’t just kill Jews in Nazi Germany, it was perfectly acceptable for the SS to kill the mentally ill, deformed, mixed race, and ill on sight, without fear of any repercussion from their government. What the Porch Simian proposes is that America’s police become the SS.

Lastly it is about a lot more than just murders committed under the color of law. It is about DWB. It is about the treatment of a 13 year old girl at a pool party…

And it is about the result of Uncle Jason’s promulgating white conservative racism…

‘Black Lives Matter’—but Reality, Not So Much

The movement was founded on a falsehood. Scapegoating the police ignores the true threats to the urban poor.

The great lie of the summer has been the Black Lives Matter movement. It was founded on one falsehood—that a Ferguson, Mo., police officer shot a black suspect who was trying to surrender—and it is perpetuated by another: that trigger-happy cops are filling our morgues with young black men.

The reality is that Michael Brown is dead because he robbed a convenience store, assaulted a uniformed officer and then made a move for the officer’s gun. The reality is that a cop is six times more likely to be killed by someone black than the reverse. The reality is that the Michael Browns are a much bigger threat to black lives than are the police. “Every year, the casualty count of black-on-black crime is twice that of the death toll of 9/11,” wrote former New York City police detectiveEdward Conlon in a Journal essay on Saturday. “I don’t understand how a movement called ‘Black Lives Matter’ can ignore the leading cause of death among young black men in the U.S., which is homicide by their peers.”

Actually, it’s not hard to understand at all, once you realize that this movement is not about the fate of blacks per se but about scapegoating the police in particular, and white America in general, for antisocial ghetto behavior. It’s about holding whites to a higher standard than the young black men in these neighborhoods hold each other to. Ultimately, it’s a political movement, the inevitable extension of a racial and ethnic spoils system that helps Democrats get elected. The Black Lives Matter narrative may be demonstrably false, but it’s also politically expedient.

It’s the black poor—the primary victims of violent crimes and thus the people most in need of effective policing—who must live with the effects of these falsehoods. As the Black Lives Matter movement has spread, murder rates have climbed in cities across the country, from New Orleans to Baltimore to St. Louis and Chicago. The Washington, D.C., homicide rate is 43% higher than it was a year ago. By the end of August, Milwaukee and New Haven, Conn., both had already seen more murders than in all of 2014.

Publicly, law-enforcement officials have been reluctant to link the movement’s antipolice rhetoric to the spike in violent crime. Privately, they have been echoing South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who said in a speech last week that the movement was harming the very people whose interests it claims to represent. “Most of the people who now live in terror because local police are too intimidated to do their jobs are black,” the governor said. “Black lives do matter, and they have been disgracefully jeopardized by the movement that has laid waste to Ferguson and Baltimore.”...More (if you can stomach it)…
