Chumph Airbnb host To Cough Up $5,000 for Trump Laced Tirade in Refusing to Rent to “Asians”

Ouch! This one is going to leave a mark…

You average Trumpazoid on Airbnb.

Trump-loving Airbnb host ordered to pay $5,000 for telling woman she wouldn’t rent to Asians

Tami Barker, an Airbnb host who invoked President Donald Trump’s name when she told a woman that she was cancelling her reservation because she was Asian, has been ordered to pay thousands of dollars in damages for racial discrimination.

The Guardian reports that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) ordered Barker to pay out $5,000 to Dyne Suh, a 26-year-old Asian-American law student whose reservation at Barker’s cabin got cancelled earlier this year.

“In addition to paying monetary damages and taking a college-level course in Asian American studies, Barker must agree to comply with anti-discrimination laws, make a personal apology to Suh, participate in a community education panel and volunteer with a civil rights organization,” the Guardian reports.

In messages sent to Suh after cancelling her reservation, Barker wrote that “I wouldn’t rent it to u if u were the last person on earth” and “One word says it all. Asian.” She also explained that “it’s why we have Trump… and I will not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners.”

Suh, who has lived in the United States for the past 23 years, posted an emotional video earlier this year shortly after her Airbnb reservation got cancelled in which she lamented that many people treated her like “trash” due to her race, despite the fact that she has lived in the United States most of her life.

A typical racist, violent Chumph supporter threatens anti-Trump protesters with a knife in Berkley

‘Major Trump supporter’ accused of fatally stabbing black man following bus stop political argument

Police say an argument about sports and politics led to a fatal stabbing in Oakley on Saturday.

Phillip Wade, 38, of Antioch was arrested for allegedly stabbing 57-year-old Anthony Johnson of Pittsburg multiple times at a bus stop in Oakley on Saturday afternoon. According to police, Johnson and Wade were arguing over sports and politics on a Tri Delta Transit bus.

The argument continued after both men got off the bus on Main Street near Charles Way.

Wade then allegedly produced a knife that he used to stab Johnson multiple times. A witness passing by stopped his vehicle and pulled out a gun and told Wade to get on the ground until police arrived.

Without knowing who was who, the police took the witness and the suspect into custody, but later released the witness.

Johnson was transported to the hospital, but later died from injuries sustained in the assault.

Johnson’s brother, James Johnson, said that “Tony” was not a violent man, but that he liked to socialize a lot and was well-known in Pittsburg.

“He just talked a lot. He could talk to anybody and sometimes he would talk loud,” James Johnson said. “He socialized a lot and he talks, but he wasn’t a man to be violent like that.”

Tony’s brother said that Tony had moved from Alabama back home to Pittsburg three years ago  after his wife passed away.

Lavonda Harts, Anthony Johnson’s niece, said her uncle was passionate about life and loved to talk about sports and politics.

“He was very quick with his words and everyone always has a joke that he’s told them,” Harts said. “He left some funny jokes with anyone he ever met.”

The incident marks the third stabbing in six years for Wade.

In March of 2011, Wade stabbed 23-year-old Justin Garza in the Brentwood BART park-and-ride after an argument on the train carried into the parking lot. Garza survived the incident.

Then in August of 2013, Wade fatally stabbed 49-year-old Kann Cendejas, a homeless veteran, at a Chevron gas station in the 3200 block of Delta Fair Boulevard in Antioch.

Antioch police did not return calls for comment on this case, but Wade’s friend, Gabriel Desta, said he was released after a few days.

“He’s had many altercations over the years and it’s gotten more severe,” Desta said. “He was never like this before. He’s been very vocal ever since I met him, but lately he was getting paranoid. Unusually paranoid.”

According to Desta, Wade had been taking a lot of medication for seizures and started telling Desta that people were talking about him, even when the people in question were too far away to be heard.

“The other day at Mel’s Diner, he told a waitress that he would stab a group of black guys there, saying they were talking bad about him, but they weren’t talking about him,” Desta said.

Wade’s Facebook page outlines increasingly hostile statements and threats towards Muslims and African-Americans. On May 19, Wade posted a threatening racist statement concerning former president Barack Obama along with the gun emoji and the emoji of a man wearing a turban.

Desta said that Wade could be prejudiced at times, but described him as “more of a follower,” who became a “major Trump supporter.”

The victim in Saturday’s fatal stabbing was black.

On Monday, Oakley police chief Chris Thorsen said they do not believe the incident was racially motivated, but continue to investigate.

Another Trumpazoid Knife Attack!

Another whacked out Trumpazoid racist attacking a peaceful black man. This time,  with a machete.

California man screaming racial slurs hospitalizes black man in machete rampage: police

052817anthonyhammondmug

Anthony Robert Hammond, 34, is being held in the Lake County Jail on $1 million bail for felony charges of aggravated mayhem, battery with serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, felony resisting executive officer, hate crime and two outside agency felony arrest warrants, and two misdemeanor charges of battery on a person, and obstructing or resisting a peace officer.

According to the Lake County News, a local newspaper in the central-northwest region of California, a white man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing a black man with a machete in what police believe was a racially-motivated attack.

Anthony Robert Hammond, the Clearlake, California resident arrested in the incident, was reportedly “yelling racial slurs at numerous people” in the parking lot of his apartment complex when he went into his apartment and came back out with a machete.

“As he continued yelling racial slurs at the victim,” the Lake County Newsreported, “Hammond struck the victim on the shoulder with the machete, causing serious bodily injury.”

The victim, whose identity hasn’t been revealed “due to the severity of the crime” was reportedly rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. His current condition has not yet been reported.

After the police were called during the attack, authorities engaged in a multi-hour standoff with Hammond, as they believed he had a firearm as well as the machete used to stab the victim. He was then arrested at the scene.

The Clearlake attack happened three days after two men were killed in Portland, Oregon for standing up to a racist man yelling slurs at two young minority women.

Domestic Terrorism…Again

More Trumpzoid Terrorism…

2 Men Killed On Portland Train After Trying To Stop Anti-Muslim Rant, Police Say

“These were folks just riding the train and unfortunately got caught up in this.”

 

Two men were stabbed to death in the U.S. city of Portland on Friday when they tried to stop their attacker from harassing two women because they appeared to be Muslim, police said.

The incident unfolded on a commuter train hours before the start of Ramadan, Islam’s holy month, when most of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims observe a religious fast.

The attack began shortly before 4:30 p.m. when a man started yelling ethnic and religious slurs toward two women who appeared to be Muslim on a MAX train at the Hollywood Transit Station, the Portland Police Department said in a statement.

Three men who intervened were stabbed, two fatally. The attacker was arrested shortly after he got off the train, police said, adding that the women left the scene before police could interview them.

“In the midst of his ranting and raving, some people approached him and appeared to try to intervene with his behavior and some of the people that he was yelling at,” Portland police spokesman Pete Simpson said during a news conference aired by local news outlets.

“They were attacked viciously by the suspect,” he added.

In a statement responding to Friday’s attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations said that anti-Muslim incidents increased by more than 50 percent in the United States from 2015 to 2016 due in part to President Donald Trump’s focus on militant Islamist groups and anti-immigrant rhetoric.

“President Trump must speak out personally against the rising tide of Islamophobia and other forms of bigotry and racism in our nation that he has provoked through his numerous statements, policies and appointments that have negatively impacted minority communities,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

The administration says that while it strongly opposes Islamist militants, it has no quarrel with Islam.

Following the attack, police said one of the men died at the scene while another died at a hospital. The third man was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

“These were folks just riding the train and unfortunately got caught up in this,” he said. Witnesses told police that the two young women were possibly Muslim. One wore a hijab. Portland police did not identify the suspect or the victims.

White Supremacist Travels to NYC to Murder Unarmed Black Men

I am going to do two articles on this one. The first deals with the crime, the second is about Timothy Caughman – the victim, and how the press has tried to de-humanize him as a black man. Funny how the Press and the courts can find so much sympathy for a white boy committing the most heinous of crimes…

But make excuses for the murder of an unarmed black man by sullying his reputation – such as to say somehow he deserved getting shot or stabbed in the back for doing nothing more than walking down the street.

White veteran charged with murder of black man as hate crime

screen-shot-2017-03-22-at-7-06-57-pm.png A white Army veteran accused of randomly killing a black man on the streets of New York by stabbing him with a sword was charged Thursday with murder as a hate crime.

“His intent was to kill as many black men here in New York as he could,” prosecutor Joan Illuzzi said as James Harris Jackson, 28, was arraigned in the slaying of 66-year-old Timothy Caughman. “The defendant was motivated purely by hatred.”

Illuzzi said Jackson was angered in particular by black men who date white women.

Authorities said Jackson traveled from his home in Baltimore last week, picking New York because he hoped to “make a statement” in the media capital of the world. He encountered Caughman, who was collecting bottles from trash cans, and stabbed him in his chest and back, authorities said.

He turned himself in at a Times Square police station early Wednesday, a day after the wounded Caughman staggered into a police precinct. The sword was found in a trash can.

Illuzzi said the charges could be upgraded because the killing was an act “most likely of terrorism.”

Jackson’s lawyer suggested that his client might be suffering from mental illness.

“What we’re going to do is take a few minutes, let the dust settle and figure out what the facts are,” defense attorney Sam Talkin said outside court. “If the facts are anything near what the allegations are, then we’re going to address the obvious psychological issues that are present in this case.”

Jackson told police he had harbored hatred toward black men for at least 10 years, authorities said….More Here

 

11 things corporate media won’t tell you about Timothy Caughman — the unarmed Black man stabbed to death by a white supremacist

nyc-victim.png Timothy Caughman was killed for being Black. He was 66.

A canner, who supported himself by gathering and redeeming bottles and cans, Caughman was doing his job–sorting through recycling–when a 28-year- old army veteran, James Harris Jackson, pulled out a 26-inch mini-sword and repeatedly stabbed him in the chest and back Monday night in Manhattan’s Hell’s kitchen neighborhood. Caughman died at a hospital.

Wednesday, Jackson turned himself in, telling police that he traveled from Maryland to New York City on Friday in order to “target male blacks,” according to Assistant Chief William Aubry of Manhattan South Detectives. “The reason why he picked New York,” said Aubry, “is because it is the media capital of the world… He wanted to make a statement.” The New York Post reports that “Jackson identifies as a white supremacist and told police he penned a manifesto about his racist views,” which included a plan “about an imminent attack on blacks in New York.” He was particularly disturbed by Black men who were in romantic relationships with white women.

So, to recap, a self-identified white supremacist fatally stabbed an unarmed man because he was Black.

Yet, much of the mainstream media coverage has turned a story about the murder of an unarmed Black men into an investigation into the character of an unarmed Black man, as Adam Johnson points out at FAIR. The Daily News and New York Post reported on Caughman’s utterly unrelated and irrelevant arrest record. Even more remarkably, The Daily News thought it was appropriate to remind readers that, “In December 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley traveled to the city from Baltimore and assassinated Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Brinsley had made anti-police statements on social media prior to the murders.” Though tragic, a murder that took place over two years ago doesn’t seem germane. Johnson suggests,

This is a bizarre journalistic choice that appears to be some kind of attempt at “balancing” the coverage, suggesting that there could be a bit of score-settling going on: Yes, this black man was senselessly murdered by a white supremacist, but some other black guy killed cops two-and-a-half years ago, so….

To be fair, there is another angle here. Both crimes were committed by men who traveled from the state of Maryland to New York City. So there’s that.

Another important thing, according to the Daily News and New York Post, is that Caughman lived in transitional housing.

This isn’t the first time the media has tasked itself with scrutinizing and smearing the character of an unarmed Black murder victim. See: Michael “no angel” Brown, Freddie “he caused his own injuries (which he didn’t)” Gray, Trayvon “he smoked pot once and gave the middle finger in a photo once” Martin. The punishment for having once smoked pot is not, actually, execution at the hands of someone who failed the police entrance exam, beats his girlfriends and volunteers as a neighborhood watchman.

Curiously, the same media which is so quick to the judge victims, finds itself capable of extraordinary empathy and understanding when the perpetrator is white. Consider, for example, the story of Brock Turner, who was sentenced to six months (of which he’d serve three) for assault with intent to rape an intoxicated woman and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object. While some were disturbed by the rape and the light sentence, The Washington Post, worried that Turner’s promising swimming career would be disrupted by the conviction. The article, whose headline read, “All-American swimmer found guilty of sexually assaulting unconscious woman on Stanford campus,” featured a fresh-faced posed photo of Turner, not the traditional mugshot.  and not his mug shot.

Caughman happened to be a collector of autographs, a passionate consumer of pop culture and a huge fan of Shari Headley, so outlets have also picked up the human interest angle of the story, which, though preferable, still manages to incorporate the irrelevant information from the smear-based reports. Even an additional article in The Daily News, whose headline reads, “New Yorker who was fatally stabbed by Maryland man loved meeting Hollywood stars,” includes the fact that he lived in transitional housing. Because so little information has been released about Caughman, even places like The Hollywood Reporter, included this irrelevant tidbit in its seemingly harmless listicle: “Timothy Caughman Stabbed To Death: 5 Things About The Innocent NYC Man.” The fourth thing you need to know, apparently, is that Caughman,

lived in transitional housing. Timothy resided in a transitional housing facility on W. 36th street, sources told New York Daily News. Transitional housing is a place for homeless people to stay, generally after they have suffered a crisis.

At least Bustle focuses on the positive in its meta piece promising that “The New Yorker’s Sense Of Optimism Won’t Be Forgotten.”

But there is another story to be found in Caughman’s biography. I first heard about Caughman when Benjamin Dixon, the host of the Benjamin Dixon Show, shared a selfie Caughman had posted of himself at 9:30 A.M. this past election day. It read, “Standing on line waiting to vote I love america.”  Dixon added his own comment: “Wow. Timothy Caughman. Murdered by a white supremacist who specifically targeted black men.”…More on Timothy’s life Here...

White Supremacists Go Batsh*t That Hate Crimes Still Can Send The to Jail

Lock ’em up in Genpop…And throw away the key,

Seems they didn’t expect occasionally being held accountable for their crimes isn’t what they planned when “electing” Trump.

Orange is the new white-right wear…

This vid was so much fun, I had to do it again –

Harsh sentence for racist Georgia couple has white supremacists across the country freaking out: report

White supremacists are outraged after a couple was sentenced to 20 years in prison for displaying a Confederate flag and making “terroristic threats” to black people who were attending a child’s birthday party in Georgia in 2015.

The defendants, Jose Torres and Kayla Norton, who were convicted last month, also “pulled out a shotgun and threatened to kill people at [the] party, including children,” according to Douglas County District Attorney Brian Fortner.

White supremacist groups have responded to the sentencing online in Facebook posts and petitions in protest of the conviction, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports. James Oliver, a member of the country’s largest neo-Nazi organization, the National Socialist Movement (NSM), made a video over the weekend about the sentencing, though it appears to have been removed. The NSM is rooted in the original American Nazi Party.

According to SPLC’s report, Oliver argued in his video, “20 years for f*cking freedom of speech … for name calling … some high school, middle school, kindergarten bullsh*t.” Oliver was reportedly joined in the video by former Klansmen John Girton, who said, “Not one negro was harmed. However, one of them did get their feelings hurt by the use of the n-word.”

The SPLC also noted that white supremacist organizations have been reframing the events of the birthday party, and sharing their own accounts of what they say “actually happened.”

For instance, the SPLC notes that Girton shared the following in a Facebook post:

What ACTUALLY happened was these flaggers were INVITED to the party in a very fake act of goodwill in the spirit of interracial peace & harmony and such assorted bullshit, but when they arrived some “urban youth” outside began throwing beer bottles at their truck, causing them to swerve into the median which popped a tire on their truck, stranding them on the scene of what would have been another incident of black on white mob violence.

Girton also claimed that the defendants were attacked by “30 Negroes” and one of the defendants “got stuck there in front of a whole unruly mob of screaming Negros.”

White supremacists also threatened Douglas Circuit Judge William Beau McClain, and circulated a petition demanding that the conviction “be overturned or at least reduced dramatically.” A Facebook user named Branden Young commented on Girton’s post, writing, “Something needs [to be] done about judges like this.”

Other white nationalist groups that have spoken out in opposition to the sentencing include individuals associated with Keystone United, a racist skinhead group that says it is “dedicated to white supremacy and cleaning up white society;” Community First Outreach, a white supremacist non-profit; White Lives Matter, a neo-Nazi movement “dedicated to promotion of the white race” that was formed in response to Black Lives Matter.

Black Former Journalist Accused of at Least 6 Synagogue Bomb Threats

One of the reasons good Law Enforcement people don’t jump to conclusions…Is life can be strange, and the unexpected happens frequently.

This clown was apparently pissed at a woman for dumping him (with it now revealed as good reason)…so he called in some bomb threats in the woman’s name!

Officials Arrest Suspect In At Least 8 Bomb Threats On Jewish Community

The FBI is searching for more suspects in the dozens of calls to Jewish institutions around the nation.

A former staff reporter for The Intercept is accused of making eight threats to Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League’s New York headquarters in an attempt to harass a former girlfriend, according to the FBI and the publication.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation worked with the New York Police Department and New York State Police to arrest Juan Thompson in St. Louis, Missouri, on one count of cyberstalking, according to an FBI press release. Thompson, 31, allegedly stalked a woman by making the threats in her name, court documents said.

While Thompson is accused in eight of the incidents, there have been dozens of others. An FBI spokesperson told The Huffington Post that a suspect or suspects who have been making sweeping calls in waves to Jewish community centers across the country are still on the loose.

The harassment began in July, immediately after the woman ended her relationship with Thompson, according to the documents. On July 27, Thompson allegedly sent an email to the victim’s employer at a social service organization in the greater New York area, claiming that she’d been pulled over for drunk driving and was being sued for spreading sexually transmitted diseases.

Thompson then made eight threats over the course of a month, using two different methods, authorities said. He would either make the threats in the victim’s name, or in his own name and then claim the victim was trying to frame him. According to the FBI, he sent the first threat via email to the Jewish History Museum in Manhattan on Jan. 28.

On Feb. 1, he allegedly threatened a Jewish school in Manhattan twice, and another Jewish school in Farmington Hills, Michigan, once. He allegedly threatened a JCC in Manhattan on Feb. 7; a JCC in San Diego on Feb. 20; and sent an email to the Council on American-Islamic Relations to threaten a Jewish center in Dallas on Feb. 21.

Thomson is accused of sending an email to the ADL on Feb. 21 saying the woman “is behind the bomb threats against Jews. She lives in NYC and is making more bomb threats tomorrow.” The next day, the ADL got a phone call from a person claiming that “explosive material” had been placed at its office in Manhattan, according to the FBI.

Court documents mentioned the tweet below, in which Thompson accuses “this nasty/racist #whitegirl” of sending “a bomb threat in my name.”

Know any good lawyers? Need to stop this nasty/racist I dated who sent a bomb threat in my name & wants me to be raped in jail.
