Twerking Attack at DC Gas Station – Women Attack Man

This one is indeed strange…I think the guy was right to be suspicious about what was going on.

Victim of twerking attack at DC gas station speaks out

Two women are accused of sexually abusing a man inside a gas station, and police say they have made one arrest. Surveillance video captured the women “twerking” and touching the man— and that victim is now speaking out to FOX 5.

The man, who has asked not to be identified, said he was getting gas at the Shell station in the 1700 block of New York Avenue NE on October 7 around 4 p.m. when he was attacked. The video shows the women coming over to the man, and then they are seen twerking and groping him. The man said the suspects also flashed him while he pumped gas and followed him as he called police.

“You don’t know who these people are. I was afraid of my safety. Like I said, I thought they were either transvestites, or women, or men dressed like women,” the victim said.

According to the victim, he asked the cashier for help, and the man behind the counter told him, “What do you want me to do?”

The victim said there were men outside of the gas station who he believed to be pimps, and he was concerned about what would happen to him if he acted in self-defense.

“And then, when I had the idea that they were women, I thought they would have a pimp who was pushing them to be prostitutes who could have been outside with one of the gentlemen that were out there watching and witnessing, could have been with guns to come and shoot me. I did not want to be shot that day,” the victim said.

The victim said he is a teacher and does not want to show his face because of the backlash he has received on social media for filing a complaint.

Police arrested 22-year-old Ayanna Marie Knight of Las Vegas on Tuesday. She is facing a third-degree sex abuse charge. The other suspect has not been caught.

Black College Students Harassed and Arrested in DC -For Being Too Close to ATM

This one started by a call from some white folks that 3 black students were making them nervous…The kid being mauled is Jason Goolsby, a Howard University Freshman, who looks like he weighs in at about 120 lbs wet. No charges were made, and Goolsby was released.

DC Metro police are alleging the suspects ran, but no arrests were made for evasion. Their report reads, “The individual resisted, and was handcuffed while resisting after he refused to stop,” and “The person making the video was interfering with police, and was also detained while the incident was investigated.” The report concludes, “Neither individual was arrested.” Police also told local media that they offered medical attention, but that the suspect refused it and fled after being detained.

In the video, two cops assault 18-year-old Jason Goolsby as he lies on the ground writhing in pain screaming “I’m not resisting!” In the background, his friend is heard screaming, “He didn’t do nothing!”

Banking while black: College students handcuffed after ‘uncomfortable’ white customers complain

A black man identified by his Twitter name @darealbighomiee claims he and his companion were assaulted and handcuffed by District of Columbia police officers because a white couple said they made them feel “uncomfortable.”

According to WJLA, the man and his friend — both identified as Howard University students — were hanging out near a bank ATM when they were approached by police officers who were responding to a call stating a “suspicious person” had been spotted and might be trying to rob people.

According the Metro Police report, three individuals were approached and one fled, leading to a chase.

“The individual resisted, and was handcuffed while resisting after he refused to stop,” the report stated. “The person making the video was interfering with police, and was also detained while the incident was investigated.’

The report concludes, “Neither individual was arrested.”

In the video, two cops can be seen wrestling with 18-year-old Jason Goolsby on the ground, pulling his arms behind his back as he screams, telling him to stop resisting.

Goolsby’s companion, who was filming the incident, can be heard repeatedly telling the police, “He didn’t do nothing.”

After one officer screams at him to back up, a third officer shows up and threatens the cameraman with arrest before a scuffle breaks out and the video stops.

In a later tweet linked to the video, @darealbighomiee wrote: “We were approached because a white couple felt uncomfortable around me and my friend in the bank, this is how the police responded …”

Louis Farrakhan – Republicans are “Whores”

20th Anniversary of the Million Man March. Nowhere near as big a crowd but the Rev spooled up and got it going. And, disappointingly….Takes a shot at Jewish people.

Nation of Islam leader compares GOP presidential field to ‘whore’ prostituting for money at ‘Justice or Else’ rally in D.C.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan Saturday compared the Republican presidential field to a “whore” who was prostituting herself for money.

At his “Justice or Else” rally, organized in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Million Man March, the controversial speaker also called America “hypocritical” for challenging human rights issues abroad, and said Jews “have no forgiveness in them.”

But Farrakhan saved his sharpest barbs for Republicans seeking the White House.

“They are like the pretty girl showing her wares for someone to buy her,” Farrakhan said in a speech on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

“Who wants to be a whore? You think people who put their money behind you don’t expect something from you?”

Farrakhan, 82, addressed the “Black Lives Matter” movement that grew from the deaths of unarmed men and women at the hands of police, and said communities victimized by police brutality had had enough.

“This thing has reached the point of explosion,” Farrakhan said. “Even people of color at high places can’t take it no more. It’s like a volcanic explosion that’s coming now.”

Farrakhan chided blacks for being too tolerant and too forgiving of their abusers.

“Find me a Jew who forgives Hitler,” Farrakhan said. “And they say they’re the children of God, and they don’t have no forgiveness in them.”

Thousands of sign-waving, banner-carrying, bus-riding demonstrators, many of whom rallied 20 years before, came from every corner of the country to reunite and launch new initiatives.

“We just want to be treated equally,” Edna Nixon, 36, a psychology student from East New York, said as she rode a bus from Brooklyn to Washington, D.C.

Nixon said she participated in recent “Black Lives Matter” protests, and said she came to Washington D.C. to demand justice.

“Being from East New York, all we do is fight for justice,” Nixon said. “It’s not about me, it’s about us. We’re all in this together.”

William Fleming Jr., 61, said he was at the 1964 March on Washington and the 1995 Million Man March.

“We’ve come a long way,” Fleming said. “I’ve seen a lot of change. From Martin Luther King’s dream to now. We have Obama as President. Growth has come a long way from the struggles that our leaders died fighting for.”

June Busacco, 52, a Brooklyn resident, said the activism must continue after the rally.

“I’m going to show my photos to the guys who hang out on the corner,” Busacco said. “If you can reach 10 people and those 10 reach another 10, then we’ve changed something. You have to pass that torch along to the young ones. Take that change and move forward.”

It’s Not About Heritage

Heritage or Hate? I think the hate part comes through pretty clearly.

Here’s What It’s Like Inside A Pro-Confederate Flag Rally

More than 1,300 people were expected to attend a “Southern Heritage” rally in support of the Confederate flag on Saturday in front of the U.S. Capitol. Fewer than 50 showed up.

In the wake of this summer’s horrific murders of nine black churchgoers — committed by a manwho admired the Confederate flag — universities and state governments have faced heated calls to remove the flag from their public spaces. In response, many have taken down the symbols, prompting fierce backlash including pro-flag rallies in Alabama, Georgia, and now Washington, D.C.

In interviews with ThinkProgress, members of the small crowd said they wanted the U.S. government to hear their messages: preserve Confederate symbols, and squash the Black Lives Matter movement.

“This Black Lives Matter bull is racism that the government don’t see. It’s white genocide propaganda. They’re pushing folks to shoot cops and white people,” said Ron Feathers from Elliston, Virginia. Behind him, the crowd waved flags, let out “rebel yells,” and showed off their Confederate tattoos and belt buckles.

Looking across the park at a cluster of anti-Confederate protesters — who far outnumbered his own group — Feathers added: “If Robert E. Lee was alive today, this shit wouldn’t be going on. That’s when we had a true American in office.”  { Interesting, because Robert E. Lee never served political office to my knowledge}

Feathers, a self-identified Democrat who believes President Obama is planning to declare martial law and “rule the whole world,” said he’s been organizing “flag rollings” across Virginia — where people drive together with Confederate symbols on their cars — to push back against those he feels are “taking [his] history away.”

Unprompted, Feathers offered his thoughts about why “colored people in general” have a “ghetto lifestyle.”

“It’s because their daddies ain’t in the picture. All these kids are latchkey kids. They’re not being taught the right way. And they only do things in groups. They’ve got so much hatred.”

When DC artist and activist Sima Lee — who is black and indigenous — approached Feathers and yelled at him to get the Confederate flag out of her city, he repeatedly called her “babe” and told her, “Go back to that side where you belong.”

Though Feathers and other pro-Confederate demonstrators repeatedly prefaced their remarks by telling ThinkProgress they are not racist, several expressed anger at the Black Lives Matter protesters across the park.

“I am restraining myself because I am a southern belle,” said Ginny Meerman, a beauty pageant consultant and former “Mrs. Maryland” winner who sported a Confederate flag tattoo across her upper back. “But bless their little hearts if I got them in a quiet alley somewhere.”

When a group of several dozen local D.C. activists across the park began chanting “black lives matter,” she assured the group: “We are above them. We are so far above them they will never, ever be on the same plane that we are.”

“We are the Confederacy,” Meerman called out. “Look at the person standing to your left and right. That is the Confederacy. We are it.”

On the other side of the Capitol Hill park, dozens of local activists banged drums, held aloft homemade signs denouncing the Confederate flag, and spilled out into the street, blocking traffic.

Casey Udley, who grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina and now lives in Northern Virginia, told ThinkProgress she came out to demonstrate because she wanted to show that “there is another way to be white and southern.”

“I brought my sweet tea and my signs and I’m here to say that hate may be our heritage, but it doesn’t have to be our legacy,” she said. “It’s important for white people to stand up to other white people and teach what it means to be anti-racist.”

The anti-Confederate demonstrators told ThinkProgress that those waving the Confederate flag were perpetuating racism whether that was their intention or not.

“I feel scared when I see it — genuinely afraid. I wonder what the person holding it thinks of me,” said Winter Brooks, an African-American student at American University. “It’s a symbol of hate, of pro-slavery, anti-blackness, anti-minorities. It’s frightening.”

Though a line of Capitol Police and several hundred feet separated the two protests, at least one protester on the pro-Confederate side expressed fear that something dangerous might happen if the two crowds collided. Jason Berry, a Civil War reenactor from Detroit, said he had wanted to bring his mixed-race 12-year-old child to the event, but decided against it.

“They’re the most racist group there is,” he said, referring to Black Lives Matter.

Diner in Blanc

Heard about this. Unfortunately was too busy to deal with the drill. A couple of my staff who are foodies did. Sounds like it was a blast!


D.C.’s Snobbery-Free ‘Diner en Blanc’ Showed Washington at Its Partying Best

White people are crazy.

Let me rephrase: People who dress entirely in white—from head to toe—and schlep white tablecloths, white chairs, and white plates and napkins to the middle of a city to eat cold food with thousands of strangers, also dressed entirely in white, and who pay for this form of social masochism, are crazy.

I reached this conclusion weeks before I donned a pair of white linen drawstring pants, a white Guayabera shirt, and a pair of white espadrilles (which look good on no man) to join 2,000 strangers for Diner en Blanc, the foodie flash-mob franchise that rolled into Washington on Saturday night.

I was a guest, but my fellow diners (“dinerers”?) had paid upwards of $100 per couple to join this culinary club.

The Washington event sold out weeks earlier. Weeks!

The attendees were told to meet in groups at pre-assigned locations around the city.

Many of them had taken the Metro from the hinterlands of the D.C. suburbs. They flocked like little white lemmings, hiking their hemlines up from the dirty street corners, and waited patiently until 6 p.m.

Only then were they informed of the soirée’s secret locale, and they set out en masse.

I’d been tipped off to the venue early.

I stood outside the Carnegie Library in downtown Washington, just across from the city’s convention center, and watched streams of crisply dressed revelers, looking very hungry, hauling folded tables and chairs, linens, and baskets towards the library’s handsome lawn.

Some carried their gear in Rubbermaid bins strapped to luggage carts. Plenty towed roll-aboard suitcases filled with cutlery and cold salads. One woman pushed her supplies in a wheelchair.

Again, I reminded myself, people had paid for this privilege. Why? Washington is lousy with public parks and open green spaces. Did these revelers require instruction to enjoy themselves? When did they become allergic to spontaneity?

The city has been transformed over the past two decades into an urban consumer playground that can accommodate both the very wealthy who can afford to live there and the multitudes that come to shop, to eat, and—apparently, as “Diner” proved—to commune with total strangers.

The evening’s attendees had religiously adhered to the Diner en Blanc International-enforced dress code, helpfully emailed to patrons a few days prior. “Wear White. Please no ivory, cream, off white, a dress with a black belt, light khaki pants, or any other color.”

I realized my espadrilles were ecru and became anxious at the thought of a “Diner” enforcer confronting me with an ultimatum: Either the espadrilles went or I did. I wasn’t sure which outcome I’d prefer.

“Dress Elegantly or Very Elegantly,” the email said. Dangerous advice. More than a few women wore wedding dresses. Mens’ white jackets flirted with Zoot suitterritory. I did spot one man in a cream dinner jacket. I guessed he’d made it past the color guards.

“Very Elegant” also meant guests could wear a “mask, gloves, wig, or fascinator.”

For inspiration, guests were encouraged to consider Marie Antoinette, and to feel free to imitate her, provided that their wigs were “original” and of “high-quality” and, perhaps it went without saying, but it was said, “white.”

Washington is rather late to this white social craze. Diner en Blanc began nearly 30 years ago in Paris when, the story goes, a group of friends met up for a picnic in the Bois de Boulogne, a large public park on the western edge of Paris, and wore white so they could find each other.

I put aside for the moment why friends would fail to identify each other without dressing like Mr. Roarke from Fantasy Island. Perhaps they weren’t very good friends.

In any event, the founders clearly tapped into some thwarted social longing.

Thousands of people had been waiting to join this white army. The concept became contagion, and ‘Diner’ has now spread to Paris, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Abidjan, Cape Town, Canberra, Auckland, Vilnius, Moscow, Shanghai, Singapore, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and now Washington. ...Read the rest here…

Washington DC Goes Clean Power

Washington DC has closed a deal to supply 35% of the city’s Power from Wind Farms in Pennsylvania.

Now, if they could only put wind vanes in Congress to harness the hot air, and a methane plant to harvest the bullshit…The other 65% would be free.

DC Mayor Touts New Obama-Backed Wind Power Deal

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser


Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the commencement of a deal with a power provider that would allow the city government to produce 35 percent of its energy from wind turbines located in Pennsylvania.

At a press conference Wednesday, Bowser thanked the Obama administration for “all of their hard work” pushing clean energy regulations and said the deal would help the city keep in line with Obama’s Clean Power Plan.

“The District of Columbia is not a city that denies science or the facts,” Bowser said. “We know that climate change is real.”

Since 2012, the city government had been buying Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, to power its buildings and facilities. The RECs allowed the DC government to buy green energy it wasn’t actually using, but now the city will get wind power directly from a wind farm in Pennsylvania…

Battle With the Bloviate – Hannity Ripped By Norton-Holmes

Hannity gets miffed Eleanor Holmes-Norton, the Congressional Representative from Washington, DC won’t all into debating his racist baiting…

Hannity tries to use a tried conservatwerp racist technique, which is to try and force the other person to argue on behalf of their racist imagination. Ergo – to become the perfect foil for their poor argument. Holmes sticks to her guns…And Hannity looks like a fool.

Way to go, Congresswoman!
