Black Contribution to Gun Threats on Campus

As MLK said, Hate fosters Hate…

University Of Chicago Shooting Threat A Response To Laquan McDonald Video

Jabari R. Dean, 21, of Chicago, threatened to kill 16 white male students or staff at the school.

Federal authorities said an online threat that led the University of Chicago to cancel classes Monday targeted whites and was motivated by the police shooting of a black teenager, video of which was released last week and sparked protests.

Jabari R. Dean, 21, of Chicago, threatened to kill 16 white male students or staff at the school on Chicago’s South Side, according to the criminal complaint.

Dean, who is black, was arrested Monday morning. He did not enter a plea later in the day on a charge of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce in court. Dean is a freshman studying electrical engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and wore a red sweat shirt emblazoned with the name of that school at the hearing.

The threat was posted Saturday, just days after the city released a video of Officer Jason Van Dyke, who is white, shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was black, 16 times.

Van Dyke is charged with first-degree murder, and his bond was set for $1.5 million on Monday. That means Van Dyke needs to pay $150,000 to be released, and Van Dyke’s attorney said he was hopeful his client could be released in the “very near future.”

Authorities said Dean posted online from a phone that he would “execute approximately … 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time (sic) McDonald was killed” and “will die killing any number of white policemen that I can in the process.”

The criminal complaint, released by the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago, said someone tipped the FBI on Sunday to a threat that was posted on a social media website. The FBI was unable to find the threat online, and was provided a screenshot by the person who reported the threat.

That led them to Dean, who admitted to FBI agents that he posted the threat and took it down shortly after posting it, the complaint said. Despite the threat mentioning three guns, a prosecutor said Monday that Dean did not appear to pose a threat. The complaint did not say whether Dean possessed any weapons.

The University of Chicago, where President Barack Obama taught law, first alerted students and staff Sunday night about a threat that mentioned the quad, a popular gathering place, and 10 a.m. Monday.

The University of Chicago statement urged faculty, students and non-essential staff to stay away from the Hyde Park campus through midnight Monday and told students in college housing to stay indoors. The cancellations of classes and activities affected more than 30,000 people, though the University of Chicago Medical Center was open to patients.

Not sure what Mr Dean thought he was accomplishing in threatening an attack on 16 innocent fellow students. Seems to me his anger and targets (not to mention violent response) are misplaced – anger at the innocent symptom of the problem instead of it’s cause and support structure.

Hate also makes you stupid.

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.”

Going Nazi – The Right’s Howl over Syrian Refugees…

Last I checked there were only about 1,600 SYrian refugees that had made their way to America.

  1. That is less than 5% of the 50,000 or so Sarah Palin “Sovereignty” types who want to destroy the Federal Government of the type who brought us the mass shooting of Sikh people in Temple.
  2. Less than 5% of the 70,000  estimated number of KKK, Christian Identity, or Aryan types who want to murder all non whites and take over the government who brought us the mass murder in Charleston and countless other savage attacks..
  3. About the same number as there are extremist “Patriot” and Militia GROUPS in this country, who brought us the Bombing of the Murrah Building.

And we are supposed to stupid enough to believe the immigration of 10,000 more Syrian refugees is going to rock America’s Foundations?

Cases in point.

Rhode Island Republican wants Syrian refugees held in ‘centralized’ camps: ‘Our country is under attack’

A Rhode Island Republican lawmaker has gone one step closer to the Third Reich’s “Final Solution” by saying Syrian refugees should be rounded up and placed in a concentration camp.

State Sen. Elaine Morgan (R) made the comment in a Tuesday email to a member of the public, which she accidentally CC’ed to other lawmakers, WPRI reports.

“If we need to take these people in we should set up [a] refugee camp to keep them segregated from our populous.” Morgan wrote in the email. “I think the protection of our US citizens and the United States of America should be the most important issue here.”

Morgan also launched into a bigoted attack on Muslim people by lumping the entire religious community together with Islamic State terrorists.

“The Muslim religion and philosophy is to murder, rape, and decapitate anyone who is a non Muslim,” she wrote, also stating, “I do not want our governor bringing in any Syrian refugees. I think our country is under attack. I think this is a major plan by these countries to spread out their people to attack all non Muslim persons.”

Morgan said she meant to edit the message but failed to do so properly because she didn’t know how to edit using her smartphone. On Wednesday though, she expressed similar sentiments.

“I can see taking [Syrian refugees] in, but keeping them all centralized – it sounds a little barbaric, but we need to centralize them and keep them in one central area,” she said.

Morgan then went on to suggest refugees should fight in the civil war instead of fleeing, though most of them are women and children.

Ooooh! Here’s an idea! Little yellow stars! And really big ovens…

Trump crosses the Nazi line: Maybe Muslims should wear special ID badges

Donald Trump stuck a toe across the Nazi line Thursday morning in the ongoing hysteria over Muslim immigrants.

The Republican presidential frontrunner refused to rule out requiring Muslims to carry special identification showing their faith — which the Third Reich required Jews to do with a yellow badge that resembled the Star of David.

“We’re going to have to do things that we never did before,” Trump told Yahoo News. “Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule.”

The Nazi policy was based on an anti-Semitic practice in Medieval and Renaissance European nations, and historians say it played a large role in paving the way for acceptance of the Holocaust.

“The German government’s policy of forcing Jews to wear identifying badges was but one of many psychological tactics aimed at isolating and dehumanizing the Jews of Europe, directly marking them as being different (i.e., inferior) to everyone else,”according to the Holocaust Center. “It allowed for the easier facilitation of their separation from society and subsequent ghettoization, which ultimately led to the deportation and murder of 6 million Jews.”

Trump also refused to rule out warrantless searches as part of his call for increased surveillance of Muslim houses of worship, and he has also suggested that U.S. mosques could be shut down if they are deemed to be a security threat — althoughhe’s not certain that’s legal.

“Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to do things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

The real estate tycoon and reality TV star said he was open to registering U.S. Muslims in a special database, in addition to requiring them to publicly identify themselves by their faith.

“We’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Yeah…There are some folks that America would be better off deporting…except they aren’t refugees or immigrants. Raise the effing National IQ level…

How Republicans Aid and Abet ISIS

ISIS wants to turn the rhetoric on their terrorist attacks into a religious war against Islam. But the real fact is that ISIS are pretty equal opportunity murdering scumbags…

  1. They have killed and/or executed thousands, if not tens of thousands of their fellow Muslims.
  2. They have destroyed Mosques.
  3. They have destroyed cultural and historic sites.
  4. They have conducted forced marriages and mass rape of Muslim women.

None of which have anything to do with so-called right wing “christians” in the US.

Now America certainly has the capability to turn any stretch of landscape in the Middle East into “temporarily uninhabited” with conventional means as demonstrated in WWII in Dresden, or uninhabitable for periods in excess of 5,000 years as demonstrated by the relatively primitive weapon which devastated Hiroshima. All without reaching deep down into the arsenal of the “unthinkable” and with less than 20 minutes notice. The consequences of which aren’t likely to solve the “problem”.

Making Republicans ISIS’s dumbest “useful fools” of all.

Texas whack-job Ted Cruz – one of the biggest ISIS “Useful Fools”.

Taking the bait: How Republicans help ISIS spread their propaganda about the ‘war against Muslims’

The distended Republican presidential field’s (AKA The Clown Bus) response to the terror attacks in Paris is a conglomeration of policy proposals that look something like this: a ground invasion of Syria and Iraq that will explicitly be less careful about killing civilians, combined with a policy of relief for refugees only if they’re Christians.

One can almost see the Islamic State’s top ideologues and propagandists celebrating. And why not? Muslims the world over, which Isis views (wrongly) as a sea of potential recruits, could be forgiven for viewing the Republican rhetoric as a declaration of holy war against their coreligionists.

I wish my thumbnail descriptions of Republicans’ talking points were a joke, but they’re not. And the policies described by the candidates line up almost exactly with the image of America that Isis seeks to portray in its propaganda. The target for Isis’s messaging was made abundantly clear in a statement last month from the group: “Islamic youth everywhere, ignite jihad against the Russians and the Americans in their crusaders’ war against Muslims”, said Isis spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani.

Florida Senator and Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio might as well have had this very idea in mind when he said repeatedly, of the fight against Isis: “This is a clash of civilizations”. Rubio relished in his identification of Isis as an “Islamic” group – a notion President Barack Obama has disavowed. Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who has otherwise taken to defending his brother’s legacy, however ahistorically , evendisavowed George W Bush’s proclamations that the “global war on terror” wasn’t “against Islam , or against faith practiced by the Muslim people”.

Rubio even challenged Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s reluctance to use the term “radical Islam” with an inapt comparison: “That would be like saying we weren’t at war with Nazis because we were afraid to offend some Germans who were members of the Nazi Party but weren’t violent themselves”. The Nazis, in this comparison, would be Isis – but no one is contending that any Isis members should be spared the fight.

That the American fight against Isis is one aimed at Muslims, rather than a particular extremist group, was reinforced when the Republican candidates blamed Europe’s acceptance of Syrian refugees for the Paris attacks. Subsuming the news from Paris into their extremist platforms, Republican hopefuls moulded their usual anti-immigrant stances into positions against allowing any Syrian refugees into the country – on the rare occasion that they could demonstrate any knowledge of the specifics of Obama’s plan to settle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the US.

Donald Trump, for his part, couldn’t quite grasp the scale of Obama’s plan: “Our president wants to take in 250,000 from Syria. I mean, think of it. 250,000 people”, Trump told a rally in Texas. But Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush , usually considered a moderate among the zany Republican field, took it a step farther: they urged that only Syrian Christians be allowed to come to America as refugees. (Cruz hasstaked out this position before .)

That callousness not withstanding, Bush told NBC : “I think we have a responsibility to help, but ultimately the best way to deal with refugees is to have a strategy to take out Isis”, nodding to a declaration of war against the militant group and calling for a plan to “eradicate Isis from the face of the earth”. Other Republicans echoed the call for a stepped-up US military intervention .

So how would America wage this total war? We should “go in on the ground and destroy their caliphate”, said South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. Ben Carson, the famed neurosurgeon seeking the Republican nomination, said American troops on the ground would “ probably ” help the anti-Isis effort, but was short on other specifics: he said the fight should utilize American “covert resources, military resources, things-that-they-don’t-know-about resources”…

confederate Bombs Walmart For Not Selling Confederate Flag

“Heritage not Hate”?

Since Walmart and other stores have decided against selling confederate flags…This “upstanding citizen” decided to throw a bomb into a WalMart store…

Confederate flag lover throws bomb inside Walmart after online threat: ‘No messing around anymore’

A Mississippi man was arrested on Sunday morning for allegedly throwing a bomb inside a Walmart just days after threatening the retail giant and other businesses for refusing to sell Confederate battle flags.

According to the Tupelo Daily Journal, 61-year-old Marshall W. Leonard will be charged with placing an explosive device after allegedly throwing it inside a local Walmart.

“There was an employee on break, and the suspect told him, ‘You better run,’ Police Chief Bart Aguirre said. “The employee did run and was away from harm when the package went off. It wasn’t a large explosion. It didn’t cause a lot of damage to the store.”

Leonard named Walmart and the Daily Journal as targets in an Oct. 28 post on the newspaper’s Facebook page.

“Journal corporate, you are on final warning,” he wrote Oct. 28. “You are part of the problem. As a result of this, y’all are going down, along with Walmart, WTVA, Reeds department store, and all the rest of the anti-American crooks. I’m not kidding. No messing around anymore!”

Leonard told WAPT-TV last month that the flag, which has been derided as a symbol of slavery and oppression, had nothing to do with race.

“Changing the state flag isn’t going to change nothing,” said Leonard, who opposed a bill that would remove the symbol from the Mississippi state flag. “There’s still always going to be hate. There will still always be racism.”

WTVA-TV reported that Leonard was kicked out of the Confederate flag advocacy group Mississippi On Guard in August after protesting at a Tupelo City Council meeting while being draped in the flag.

Does The Internet Enable Hate Crimes and Mass Murder?

 Trolls and hate. The Internet was conceptualized as an open system across which to share ideas and scientific concepts. Unfortunately none of the founders, having grown up largely in the shielded world of academia had any concept of the nefarious uses to which the tool could be put by hate groups, criminals, and the mentally and socially imbalanced.

The Internet, besides enabling new types of crime, international crime, and deviant pornography such as kiddie porn has also enabled hate mongers through the anonymous nature of the system to spew their vile hatred and to recruit weak minded children like Dylaan Root, who got much of his racial animosity for the Council of Conservative Citizens Web site(s).

The killer in the recent Oregon Colleges mass shooting has been tied to antisocial hubs (4Chan), as well as white supremacist and chrisitian Identity hate groups on the conservative Web.

So it isn’t just the “white Sale” on guns driving the carnage – it is the commercial sale of, and manufacture of hate and disenfranchisement for political and power purposes.

We can stop this, but to do so requires a large group of people to first take down the entry point to the Hate Groups. That typically is the fact free and often racist world of conservative white identity politics. It includes going at sites like The National Review which publishes articles of racial hate mongering by such folks as Heather McDonald, and Michelle Malkin. Both of whom frequently are published or have contracts with VDare, a white supremacist site which uses conservative racist authors as a entre’ into the harcore racism of their staff. The American Spectator, the International Business Daily, the NRO, the Federalist, Townhall, and the Wall Street Journal all serve as entries into the world of hardore racism through the introduction to racist “theology”. Many of the sites actively ban liberal, or non-racist posters through cutting them off from posting to assure no level of sanity, or truth interferes with their incited hate fests. Indeed, many conservative sites run like rats when someone shines the light.

Got to hit them in their rat holes. If we can force the entry points to see the light – then it takes away the respectability of the supremacist sites and their ability to recruit little tow headed trolls and murders like Root.

De-legitimize hate.

Lone Wolves in the Age of the Internet: Do Hate Crimes Happen More Because of Broadband Internet Access?

In an ideal world, the Internet would be a place of inclusivity and democracy. Instead, it’s just the opposite.

A new research study led by Jason Chan, Ph.D., shows a positive relationship between broadband Internet access and incidence of hate crimes. Specifically,race-driven hate crimes committed by individuals, rather than those committed in groups, increased.

Chan, an Assistant Professor of Information and Decision Science for the Carson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, discovered the correlation using official FBI data on hate crime incidents, compared to that of broadband provider access taken from FCC documents. Between 2001 and 2008, access to just one broadband ISP showed a 20 percent rise in hate crimes, particularly in areas of high racial tension.

“We see this from two different perspectives,” Chan tells The Daily Beast, “the consumers of hate content, and the producers of it. Hate content refers to internet posts that bring about skewed ideologies and advocating for a supremacy of one race over other races.”

The first perspective has to do with selective exposure, wherein readers intentionally seek out information that galvanizes their fringe beliefs.

“When readers go online,” Chan says, “there is a specialization of interest. This magnifies or amplifies the messages posted on it. This is contrary to what we believe. We believe, instead of making things more narrow, the Internet should make things more inclusive and democratic. However, people tend to search out things relevant to existing interests, which amplifies such narrow thoughts.”

Chan says developing online recruitment techniques for hate peddlers contributes to this rise as well.

“Content providers,” Chan says, “have changed the way in which they have to execute their propaganda. They use a strategy known as leaderless resistance. Whenever they put up propaganda to have content to provide the motivation, encouragement, and justification to people on the edge. It gives them reason why they should be outside normal thought.”

After yet another mass shooting, this one leaving 10 people dead at Umpqua Community College last Thursday, digital traces of the lone gunman in the attack are again left to the examination of law enforcement officials and reporters. Just hours after the shooter, Chris Harper Mercer, was killed in a standoff with police, several online accounts tracing back to Mercer expressed hate for organized religion. What’s worse, one witness said Mercer forced his victims to state their beliefs before heartlessly killing them, specifically targeting Christians.

It’s a pattern becoming tragically more common: a mass shooting takes place, and we later discover how blatantly the perpetrators expressed hate for their victims online. In this case, clear connections emerge between recent shootings: Mercer referred, in one post, to Vester Flanagan, the man who killed two people on live television in Virginia in August. Flanagan himself made specific reference to Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who gunned down nine inside a Charleston, North Carolina church in June.

“In Dylann’s case,” Chan says, “he happened to chance upon one of these hate sites. And slowly but surely he was convinced. Through half truths and misrepresented facts, he believed individuals of his race should be doing something to serve justice back to the people. In some cases this hate content provides instructions. This type of grooming process takes time. But people see more, there are more opticals, one event tips them over and they commit the crime.”

The paper, titled “The Internet and Racial Hate Crime: Offline Spillovers from Online Access,” published in the forthcoming issue of MIS Quarterly, also offers solutions to combat this online surge. The paper suggests that, instead of engaging in a technological race with producers of hate content, policy should be implemented to educate youth on digital media, racial and social justice, stereotypical messages, and how to interpret multiple meanings.

Another plan of attack would increase the amount of anti- hate content on the net. But even an attempt to right the skewed beliefs presented across the web would be somewhat futile.

Between 2001 and 2008, access to just one broadband ISP showed a 20 percent rise in hate crimes, particularly in areas of high racial tension.

“The chance of such content being seen by the one who needs to see it are small,” says Chan. “And technological advances are moving so quickly we believe there could be newer assets in searching for digital traces of those who are likely, or at risk, of committing crimes. Such lone wolfs, before they do something, we can see some patterns.”

Unfortunately, Chan says, problems of free speech get wrapped up in who posts what online.

“This can reach a certain threshold. We’d need to tell apart those who intend to commit hate crimes and those who have those ideologies but stay within the law.”
