Univision journalist Ilia Calderón probably thought she was going to interview a normal human when she decided to interview a KKK Grand Dragon in his lair.
A lot of folks just don’t seem to realize what the KKK is – especially foreigners. So when the Chumph equates the KKK and antifa – this is what he is defending.
A regular “Negro Wake-up Call” for her and her viewers.
“We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million is nothing,” said the KKK’s Chris Barker
Ilia Calderón, an afro-latina reporter, feared for the safety of herself and her crew after being threatened by a KKK leader during an interview.
Calderón, an immigrant journalist for Univision of both African and Colombian descent, agreed to meet the grand wizard of Loyal White Knights faction of the KKK Chris Barker on his property in North Carolina in July.
After watching Barker conduct a ceremony with his fellow KKK members dressed in robes and yielding torches, she sat down with the leader and his wife for an interview. Things escalated quickly as Barker questioned why the journalist didn’t “go back” to the country she was born in. “We have nothing here in America; ya’ll keep flooding it,” he said. “But like God says – like Yahweh himself says – we will chase you out of here.”
Barker continued to say that he and his fellow white supremacists would “burn out” all of the immigrants in the country. After Calderón questioned exactly how that could happen, he responded saying, “We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million is nothing.”
Later on in the interview, Barker refers to the journalist as a “mongrel” and a “n*****,” then proceeded to claim he isn’t racist because he was part of a Christian group and not a hate group.
“My team told me that I would be insulted, and I knew, but I never imagined the level,” Calderón told Univision. “. . . At that time I was really felt very afraid for my safety and the safety of my team.”
“As part of the editorial meetings we were discussing the incidents of hate that had been presented, and how, from 2016 to here, these people and these groups feel entitled to raise its highest voice – perhaps backed by a President who speaks very weakly about it,” she said.
The “Christian group” had a lot to say about the riots in Charlottesville last weekend. The Loyal Knights praised James Fields — the man who drove his car into a sea of protesters that ended in the death of one women — for “running over nine communist anti-fascists.”
“When a couple of them die, it doesn’t bother us,” Barker said. “They’re always attacking and messing with our rallies.”

Interesting interview. Not sure where, other than Leli Baskerville, Roland dug his panel up from. The woman on the right hand side of the table, who isn’t identified is a world class Auntie Tommette, lying about what President Obama did for HBCUs.
Under the Obama Administration, 1 million more African-American and Latino students have enrolled in college. What’s more, black and Hispanic students earned more than 270,000 more undergraduate degrees in 2013-2014 than in 2008-2009. This Administration remains focused on continuing to increase the number of students who successfully complete college. To that end, the Department has worked to make new opportunities available to HBCUs.
Federal funding to HBCUs has grown each year since 2009. Through the Higher Education Act, HBCUs received a $17 million funding increase this year—the largest increase for the federal Strengthening HBCUs program in six years. And President Obama’s FY 2017 budget seeks to maintain and strengthen these opportunities for HBCUs to build their capacity. The FY 2017 budget proposes $85 million in mandatory funding to HBCUs, an increase of $5 million from FY 2016, plus an additional $244.7 million in discretionary funds for Title III.
The Administration has also fought for and won a historic commitment to fully fund Pell Grants and expand student aid for millions of low-income students. Pell Grant funding for HBCU students increased significantly between 2007 and 2014, growing from $523 million to $824 million. This year, President Obama announced a plan to make sure that Pell Grants are fully funded, including inflationary adjustments, and used strategically by students to reduce time and cost for receiving a terminal degree. The President’s 2017 budget also proposes a $30 million HBCU and Minority Serving Institution Innovation for Completion Fund, to help students from low-income backgrounds overcome challenges and persist through graduation day.
The other facts –
The brutal truth is, at least the bottom half of these schools either need to be shut down or no longer receive federal support and funding. I would cut everything except the top 10 or 20. Close the doors on the rest, absorb them into their respective State Junior College System…Or install a granite marker where they used to be. Investing money in the top 20 schools would likely make a difference – especially in not throwing away money at the bottom 30. Spellman, Howard, Hampton, Morehouse, and Fisk have the capability to become competitive with the very best schools in America.
Time to cut bait or fish.

Well…The gloves finally came off at CNN yesterday, and it wasn’t pretty. Chumph’s serial liar Kellyanne Conway got a taste of what a real interview is like – getting called on her lies.
Conway just discovered what happens when the media takes the gloves off.
In response to the White House’s declaration of war to CNN, Jake Tapper takes the gloves off
On Monday, legendary news anchor Dan Rather singled out CNN’s Jake Tapper as today’s journalistic standard. On Tuesday, Tapper showed off his talent in a 25-minute, wide-ranging showdown with White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.
After Conway fabricated a terror attack — the so-called Bowling Green massacre — to justify a constitutionally-questionable travel ban, Tapper confidently held the high ground in the interview.
“You cited a massacre that didn’t happen. You said the media didn’t cover it,” Tapper said.
“What I mean is the media didn’t cover the masterminds,” Conway responded.
Throughout the heated interview, Tapper was determined to hold Conway and her boss accountable for their words, perhaps inspired by President Trump labeling CNN “fake news” and his denigration of the media at large.
“I guess the problem is, it is very difficult to hear criticisms of the media for making mistakes, and certainly the media makes mistakes,” Tapper said at one point during the interview. “But it’s very difficult to hear those criticisms from a White House that has such little regard, day in, day out, for facts, for truth.”The host of CNN’s “The Lead” was clearly offended by the disparaging comments coming out of the White House. Conway argued that the media was unfairly covering the new administration, focusing on the negative stories while ignoring its scant successes. But Tapper was having none of that.
“What we’re talking about is the fact that the White House is waging war on people who are providing information, sometimes risking their lives to do so, saying that nothing we say is true. All of it is fake. I would much rather be talking to you about veterans issues,” Tapper said. “But instead, every day, there are these strains of attack and strains of falsehoods coming from the White House.”
