Self Protection Under the Trump Reich

With the thousands of hate crimes committed by racist Trump followers since the election, it has become increasingly obvious it is up to minorities to protect themselves.

Here are a few good choices for concealed carry weapons.

SCCY CPX-II

This is the SCCY CPX-II. It is relatively new to the market. It carries 11 rounds in a 10+1 configuration of 9mm ammo. It is also one of the more inexpensive guns in his class. What I like about it is there are no exterior bumps or controls to snag on a holster or in your pocket in an emergency, and the 11 round capacity. In general, “carry” pistols are not very accurate. They are designed for close range, no more than 10-15′. The large capacity makes up for that. This gun does not have a safety, and to compensate for that it has a heavy trigger pull (9 lbs). The recoil of a 9mm in this small frame may be a bit much for smaller women.  This is an American made quality pistol perfect for self defense. (And ladies, it comes in 3 colors – black, pink, and purple). Price – around $350.

 

Beretta Nano

The Beretta Nano is one of the best designed pistols on the market for concealed carry.No protrusions on the gun to snag, and a reliable frame make this a contender as best in class. It comes with two magazines, one a 6 round, one an 8 round. Meaning it can be carried in a 6+1 or 8+1 configuration. The frame and rail system make this one of the few compacts which will survive extended range use. It has an internal safety. Cost is about $500. The gun itself is less than 1″ wide, making it 1) easy to handle for people with small hands, and 2) easily concealable in a waistband.

Bersa Thunder 380

The Bersa uses a 380 round, which is slightly smaller than a 9mm. The recoil is easily managed by most women. The 380 round is not as devastating as the 9mm but packs plenty of power. The gun is operable in singe or double action mode, and includes an external safety. It includes an internal lock down system, completely disabling the gun for storage at home (and to keep the kiddies from firing it accidentally). It also has a trigger guard designed to allow the shooter to use the gun even if wearing gloves. At slightly less than 23 ounces, it is lightweight, and not going to wear you out carrying it around. It is a reliable weapon for about $350. The gun is made in Argentina, and is a loose copy of the famous Walther PPK. Suggest carrying it in a 6+1 configuration instead of the full magazine capacity of 7 rounds.

For “Wheel Gun” fans, I recommend the Smith and Wesson 642. This design has been around 75 years, and has stood the test of time. Have no fear in buying one of these used. My personal favorite is a “44 Bulldog” using the 44 Caliber Round. The new guns frames are aluminum, with a steel barrel and cylinder making them substantially lighter then the old all steel guns. The hammerless design means no snags when you draw it, and along with the low profile sight makes this an excellent choice. I have one of these which used to be called “Airline” models which after 911 were converted to the “Airweight” Model. The 38 round is actually a more powerful round than the 9mm, which isn’t necessarily a good thing as the 38 is high velocity meaning it likely will go though a target. As to hitting anything beyond about 15′ – forget it. These are designed as close in defense weapons. There are a number of models, and these can be bought new from about $320 and up based on caliber and extras.

To stay away from?

The small Glocks. Now the Model 47 Version 3. The reason there are multiple versions of this gun is the safety, which had a habit of disengaging on draw…Resulting in a number of users ending their family plans with what we euphemistically call a “Hillbilly Vasectomy”. I generally don’t like Glocks due to less then stellar accuracy, first round jamming, and handling. When I go to the range, I outshoot even supposedly “expert” shooters with those with my relatively antique (designed in 1930), slightly modified Browning Hi-Power all day long. When I upgrade I plan to buy a Sig Sauer P229 in 9mm, which flat out is the best off-the-shelf gun in that caliber out there (Stay away from the 40 Cal and Sig 357 in this gun!). Not cheap at over $1000, but worth it.

I will do another on large frame guns at another time.

Lastly – Why 9mm?

9mm is one of four calibers, including 22, 38, and 45 which are extremely popular and thus are made in mass quantities. You can almost always find any of the four in your local Walmart as well as your local country hardware store. The 9 mm is used by the Military – meaning the are billions of those floating around, So, in the event of a “Zombie” or Trump apocalypse, unlike the less popular rounds (10 mm, 357, 40 Cal, etc), these will be available for a long time.

The Racist Alt-Right Gets Their First Seat in the Whites Only House

Of the first two Chumph hires…One is a racist POS…

Trump names Priebus as chief of staff, Bannon as chief strategist

President-elect Donald Trump announced on Sunday that he has chosen Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his White House chief of staff, putting his trust in an establishment figure after railing against the political establishment from the start of his candidacy.

Steve Bannon, a Breitbart News executive and leader of the so-called “alt-right” movement, will serve as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor.

 “I am thrilled to have my very successful team continue with me in leading our country,” Trump said in a statement. “Steve and Reince are highly qualified leaders who worked well together on our campaign and led us to a historic victory. Now I will have them both with me in the White House as we work to make America great again.”

The announcement caps days of speculation about which aides will oversee the White House, roles that will be particularly important because the president-elect lacks Washington experience. In picking Priebus, Trump appears to be trying to allay concerns of congressional Republicans, many of whom have relationships with the RNC chairman. Some of them view Bannon, whose incendiary Breitbart website has aggressively targeted Ryan and the Republican establishment, with suspicion.

Daily Trumpazoid 10/19

Today’s Trumpazoid violence

Memorial to Emmitt Till blasted with bullets — but sign marking killer’s home adorned with flowers

Sign marking spot where Emmett Till's body was found (Kevin Wilson Jr./Facebook)

A sign marking the spot where Emmett Till’s mangled body was found floating in the Tallahatchie River has been riddled with bullets — while a similar sign marking the home of his killer is adorned with flowers.

The 14-year-old Till was kidnapped, brutally beaten and shot execution-style by J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant on Aug. 28, 1955, after the teenager whistled at Bryant’s wife to impress his cousins and some other boys.

The men were acquitted after a brief trial, and Milam later said they were more worried about getting caught for stealing an industrial fan blade they used to weigh down Till’s body than they were about killing the black child.

“I didn’t intend to kill the n****r when we went and got him – just whip him and chase him back up yonder,” Milam told Look magazine in 1957. “But what the hell! He showed me the white gal’s picture! Bragged o’ what he’d done to her! I counted pictures o’ three white gals in his pocketbook before I burned it. What else could I do? No use lettin’ him get no bigger!”

Local authorities tried to quickly bury his body, but Emmett’s mother, Mamie Bradley, requested her son’s remains be sent home to Chicago — where she held an open-casket funeral to show the world what had happened to her son — and the black weekly Jet magazine published a photo of the boy’s mutilated remains.

The Emmett Till Memorial Commission put up eight signs in 2007 commemorating the boy’s death to help encourage tourism and raise money for a museum dedicated to his memory and for courthouse renovations in Sumner, reported Slate.

A Facebook user, Kevin Wilson Jr., recently visited the memorial marking the spot where Till’s body was recovered — and he found the metal sign had been shot dozens of times.

The signs have been vandalized, stolen and shot repeatedly since they went up nearly a decade ago.

One on U.S. 49 was stolen in 2007, and another in Tallahatchie County was damaged the following year — when the original sign marking the site where Till’s body was found was torn down by vandals.

Local authorities promised at the time to preserve the markers, saying they wanted to send a defiant message to the vandals.

But the replacement sign was riddled with bullet holes by 2013, and the same sign remains at the site where Till’s body was located has endured even more gunshots from a variety of angles.

The Emmett Till Interpretive Center opened and the courthouse was renovated last year with the help of the Emmett Till Memorial Commission.

Milam, who died from spine cancer at 61 in 1980, became a pariah and suffered financial ruin after confessing to the murder following his acquittal.

But a sign marking Milam’s home at the time of Till’s execution has not suffered the same abuse as the memorial to the slain boy.

Locals have even planted flowers around the sign marking where Milam, who later lost his friends and became an itinerant farmer, lived when he kidnapped the child and committed one of the most brutal and notorious crimes in U.S. history.

The Daily Trumpizoid (AKA the Deplorables) – 10/18

It seems that nearly every day Trumpazoids, egged on  by their candidate the Chumph commit some act of physical or verbal violence against non-whites.

So, I am going to begin tracking these. Two episodes so far today –

Boise man threatens black family with knives before school: ‘I’m going to cut some n****rs’

Christopher GauthierAn Idaho man grabbed two kitchen knives and threatened to “cut some n****rs” during a bizarre encounter with his black neighbors.

Christopher Gauthier, of Boise, came out of his home Friday morning with the knives as his neighbors were leaving for the day, reported the Idaho Statesman.

The victim said he loaded his two young daughters into his car for school, turned on the engine to warm it up and went back inside to get an item he’d forgotten.

That’s when the 38-year-old Gauthier ran outside, opened the car door and made a “scary face” at the girls, turned off the engine and ran back into his apartment with the neighbor’s keys.

The girls ran crying toward their home.

The neighbor yelled for Gauthier to return his car keys, and police said he came outside and threatened the man with two kitchen knives.

“You threatened to cause injury to him while holding two knives and indicating that you were to ‘cut some n****rs,” said Magistrate Daniel Steckel during Gauthier’s arraignment Monday afternoon.

The neighbor called police, but Gauthier denied having the keys and refused to open his door.

Police executed a search warrant and found the keys, and Gauthier was charged with malicious harassment and burglary, both felonies.

The magistrate set bond at $200,000, and Gauthier is schedule to return to court Oct. 28.

Trump-loving Pennsylvania mayor Charles Wasko forced out over insanely racist Facebook posts

The mayor of a small Pennsylvania borough is stepping down after sparking outrage by posting images on his Facebook page comparing President Barack Obama and his family to apes and referencing a noose, a newspaper reported.

The council of West York, a community less than 100 miles west of Philadelphia, voted unanimously on Monday to accept Mayor Charles Wasko’s offer to resign, according to the York Daily Record.

Wasko’s resignation will be effective on Oct. 21, with the president of the council filling out the rest of the mayor’s term until an election next year, the newspaper reported. His second term will end in January 2017.

Wasko had resisted calls to step down earlier this month, after he was accused of racism for the images on his page. The West York Borough Council voted 7-0 on Oct. 3 to censure him over the posts — which compared the Obama family to monkeys and joked about lynching the president.

There have been instances across the country of government officials spreading racist images and jokes since Obama took office in 2009 as the first African-American U.S. president. In 2013, a federal judge in Montana retired after acknowledging that he had used court email to circulate a racist joke about Obama.

Trumpizoids Arrested for Domestic Terrorism

More Trump crazies in the news. Three white nationalists were arrested in Kansas planning to blow up an apartment building because many of the residents were Somalis.

3 Militia Members Arrested In Connection With Plot To Carry Out Terror Attack On Kansas Mosque

Three Men Charged With Plotting Attack On Somali Immigrants In Kansas

Three men have been arrested and charged with planning to use a weapon of mass destruction in a terrorist attack on a mosque and housing complex in a western Kansas town where Somali immigrants live and worship,according to the U.S. Justice Department.

The men were part of a militia group whose members called themselves “The Crusaders,” Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said at a news conference. They had conspired to detonate a bomb at an apartment complex in Garden City, Kan., which houses about 120 people, many of whom are Muslim.

The defendants had allegedly conducted surveillance of the housing complex, stockpiled firearms and bomb-making materials and had even written a manifesto that was to be published in conjunction with the attack, which was scheduled for Nov. 9, the day after the presidential election.

“One of [the defendants] said the bombing would ‘wake people up,’ ” Beall said.

The arrests come after an eight-month investigation of the three men, identified as Curtis Allen, 49, Gavin Wright, 49, and Patrick Eugene Stein, 47. During that time, investigators say, the men considered a number of targets, including churches and public officials who supported Somali immigrants, as well as landlords who rented to Somalis.

They allegedly settled on the apartment complex. Some local people call the complex “Somali Town,” says Garden Valley Church pastor Steve Ensz.

Ensz’s church is about a mile from the apartment complex and helps refugees acclimate to life in western Kansas. He tells NPR he was “saddened, but not surprised” to hear the news and says that most people in Garden City are “good moral people, welcoming to refugees.”

When told that the defendants allegedly wanted to “wake people up,” Ensz said, “They’re the ones that need to be woken up.”

If convicted, the three men would face up to life in federal prison.

Conservatives Again Show Their Racist Behinds on Tubman Being Added to $20 Bill

The conservatives even trotted out their favorite Uncle Tom, Uncle Ben Carson…

Followed by his owner – Donald Trump

 

They only want to honor white men: The pathetic conservative meltdown over the Harriet Tubman $20 bill exposes the right’s petty identity politics

The only reason to be mad about the changes to the money is a belief that only white men should receive tribute

On Wednesday, the Treasury Department unveiled a plan to redesign the $20, $10, and $5 bills to better reflect American history, moving some of the (all white, all male) former presidents around on the bills and making room to put luminaries like Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, and Eleanor Roosevelt on various bills. The biggest shift will be Tubman, who helped create and run the Underground Railroad for escaped slaves, gracing the front of the $20 bill, kicking Andrew Jackson to the back.

(Why Jackson, the Donald Trump of his time — except more genocidal — needs to stay on the bill is another question altogether.)

The Treasury’s decision should be non-controversial. After all, we all agree that history is made by more than presidents (plus, the $100 bill has a non-president on it, which confirms this is a shared belief), and that people other than white men exist and matter. Don’t we? You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who disagrees publicly with these contentions, except perhaps on some Twitter accounts that Trump keeps retweeting.

Yet, in a move that was entirely predictable, right wing pundits are in meltdown, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that, regardless of any surface claims to believe in equality, the reality is that they adhere to the belief that white men are the only ones who really matter and the rest of us are just the supporting cast.

The strategy that modern conservative propaganda uses, when called upon to rationalize overt racism and sexism, is to get conservative women and people of color to express the sentiments. It’s a cheap and obvious but unfortunately effective ploy, and one that was immediately employed by the folks at Fox News to appeal to their audience members who want to hear why they aren’t bigots, even though they revolt at women and black people on money.

Greta Van Susteren played her part to the hilt on Fox Wednesday night, even going so far as to say that she’s “a feminist”, before offering an opinion that disproved this contention.

“Rather than dividing the country between those who happen to like the tradition of our currency and want President Andrew Jackson to stay put and those who want to put a woman on a bill,” she argued.

Denying women the vote, keeping women from working, putting women in the stocks for having a sharp tongue, treating women as subhuman property of men are also “traditions,” you know. The whole point of being a feminist is refusing to accept that tradition trumps a woman’s right to equality. But beyond just that, appeals to tradition are considered a logical fallacy for a good reason. The idea that we should keep doing a stupid and harmful thing because we have done it that way in the past isn’t a grand and noble idea. It’s refusing to learn from experience.

Of course, no one actually buys this argument, not really. The folks waxing poetic about the impropriety of change when it comes to the currency probably aren’t writing their sentiments on parchment paper with quill pens. The only time they cling to tradition is if the tradition flatters their prejudices, in this case the prejudicial belief that only white men can be great Americans.

Van Susteren pretended to be open to compromise by arguing that Tubman should go on a new bill, recommending a $25 denomination. This gambit is quickly becoming a popular one for conservative pundits and politicians who are pandering to white men who think that having only white men on their money somehow makes them superior people by association.

Ben Carson, doing his duty of offering cover for racist opinions, argued on Fox News, “I love Harriet Tubman. I love what she did, but we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill.”

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump picked up this argument.

“Maybe we need to do another denomination — maybe we do a $2 bill,” Trump told Matt Lauer. “Yes, I think it’s pure political correctness — [Jackson’s] been on the bill for many, many years, and really represented someone who was really important to this country.”

If it’s not obvious what they’re doing here, let me spell it out for you: They’re pretending to be generous by offering to put Tubman on money that either doesn’t exist or people don’t use. The implication is that it’s only okay to honor women of color as long as you simultaneously assert that white men are still better...More

Trump’s Gettysburg in Wisconsin – White Nationalist’s Robocall

 

White nationalist group floods ‘every Wisconsin landline’ with robocalls backing Donald Trump

The leader of a self-proclaimed “white nationalist” group has sponsored robocalls in support of Donald J. Trump ahead of Wisconsin’s Tuesday Republican primary.

William Johnson told the Journal Sentinel that his group spent $6,000 to call “every Wisconsin landline” with the recorded message.

An older woman narrating the recording says that Trump “will be a fine president,” and promises that he “will respect all women and help preserve western civilization.”

The recording concludes by describing Johnson as “a farmer and a white nationalist.” The American Freedom Party and the American National super PAC are also mentioned.

Johnson explained to the Journal Sentinel that he felt it was important to include the words “white nationalist” in the call, and speculated that the narrator’s “sweet, grandmotherly voice” would make the message less controversial.

“I want people to hear, to feel comfortable with, the term ‘white nationalist,’” Johnson said.

At an event for Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday, Gov. Scott Walker called the robocall “outrageous.”

“I hope the people of this state are smart enough to see through that and denounce anything related to it,” Walker remarked.
