This is Going to End Badly

Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the 60’s white racist attacks on Civil Rights workers were common. The very racism of the right wing led the to badly underestimate what was actually going on in America, and the fact that a lot of white folks were getting pissed off because of their violence as well. Anti War sentiment, as well as anti-racism and the assassinations of MLK and Bobby Kennedy led to the evolution of left wing groups like Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), which spun off groups like the Weathermen, or more officially, the Weather Underground.

Ergo – Violence begets violence. And egged on by racist right wing news commentators and periodicals… Things are headed that way in this country…Again.

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are better ways to handle protest than to have your supporters attack and beat protesters as Trump has done, then crow about it on National News. It appears that Trump is either too stupid, or arrogant to understand that what sits at the bottom of the candle he insists on lighting isn’t the better America…It is the worst of America.

Israel found out the hard way what systemic oppression and violence brings.

The principle of self defense, even involving weapons and bloodshed, has never been condemned, even by Gandhi.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

During the Vietnam War, some anti-war protestors actually committed suicide by setting themselves on fire to protest the war. Islamic groups not infrequently have members willing to strap on explosive devices and blow themselves up in restaurants and gathering places. Just a reminder of how far powerless and oppressed folks will go. And while power comes out of the barrel of a gun…Courage doesn’t.

This Domestic Terrorism against peaceful protestors and over the top racist rhetoric encouraging violence needs to stop.

Trump rallies get rough

Protesters and supporters increasingly mix it up in the most combustible atmosphere on the campaign trail.

Last month, protesters interrupted a Donald Trump rally in Virginia with chants of “Dump Trump” and clashed with his supporters, one of whom was caught on camera spitting in a protester’s face. Another video caught a protester chanting “black power” and a Trump supporter responding with “white power” as a police officer stood between the two.

Multiple groups of Hispanic protesters interrupted the mogul at a rally in Miami, where video showed a Trump supporter dragging a protester to the ground and kicking him. In September, outside a Trump rally in Dallas, dozens of police officers, some on horseback, pushed back hundreds of shouting protesters after breaking up a tense standoff with the real-estate tycoon’s supporters.

On Wednesday, a protester who was once convicted of bringing a bomb to a military facility was arrested at a rally in Massachusetts, and on Saturday video showed supporters punching and kicking a protester who interrupted a rally in Alabama, while Trump himself later suggested that the man had it coming.

Welcome to the most combustible presidential campaign in recent memory.

The candidate’s angry rhetoric — on subjects like undocumented Mexican immigrants, political correctness and “thugs” in Baltimore — has made his run a magnet for disaffected supporters and for identity politics protesters determined to steal the spotlight and disrupt his events. Trump’s relish for confrontation, where other politicians would seek to minimize it, has only fueled the fire.

“Isn’t a Trump rally much more exciting than these other ones?” Trump said on Wednesday as police escorted a protester yelling, “Trump’s a racist” from a rally in Worcester, Massachusetts. “That kind of stuff only adds to the excitement,” he added.

Indeed, many observers say that Trump’s rallies seem to be more turbulent than those of any presidential candidate since the 1960s, with a clash of opposing cultural factions reminiscent of those outside abortion clinics or the Supreme Court on the day a divisive decision is announced.

“Trump brings something that we haven’t really seen on this scale before,” said Erik Bergling, CEO of EPG Security, which protects the Republican National Convention and other political events.

Benjamin Ness, a former Secret Service agent who has protected several presidential candidates and a co-founder of a private security firm, Fidelis Protection Group, that works political events, said Trump’s high profile makes him an attractive target for protesters. “Protesters know they’re going to get more attention at a Trump rally than at a Kasich rally,” said Ness.

While Black Lives Matter protesters have interrupted several events for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders — Democratic candidates who claim to be more sympathetic to their cause — Trump is the only Republican candidate they have regularly targeted to date.

Racism Will Make You Stupid – Trump Financier and Black Churches

One of the most welcoming places on earth to anybody but perhaps a black man at some of the personality driven joint…is the Black Church. This Trump-Clown denies that with evidence staring him in the face from the very recent mass murders at a black Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Nobody kicked Dylann Roof out of that church, denied him fellowship, or refused to pray, which sadly was the reason he was able to commit is horrific and despicable crime. Indeed, one of the very few places where at least social conservatives find common ground with black folks is in Church, whether in opposing LGBT marriage, or abortion…

Apparently being a bigot isn’t an impediment to getting rich in America – at least if you are white. However, racism IS stupidity – so intelligence isn’t the sole key to getting rich either..This offensive, racist POS should learn something…Like Civil Rights Leaders in the 60’s weren’t outsider troublemakers.

Trump supporter tells CNN: ‘I’d get beat up’ at a black church so black activists deserve it at Trump events


Robert Kiger, the founder of a super PAC supporting Donald Trump for president, said on Monday that he wasn’t surprised that a black man was beaten at a Trump rally because he would expect black people to do the same thing to him if he visited an African-American church.

At a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, Trump supporters were caught on video beating a black man because he interrupted the event by shouting “black lives matter.”

Kiger told CNN’s Carol Costello on Monday that Alabama was the wrong place to protest systemic racism.

“From my perspective, I’m sick and tire of the Black Lives Matter thing,” Kiger complained. “I think it’s a farce. I think they’re there to just disrupt. Look, if they really care about black lives, they need to pick up a banner and go to the South Side of Chicago, where black lives are being slaughtered on a daily basis. If they really care about the African-American community, get up there and do something about it.”

“So they don’t have the right to protest at a Trump rally?” Costello wondered.

“No, they don’t, really,” Kiger relied. “Look, I wouldn’t go into a black church and start screaming white lives matter.”

“Would you be afraid that they would beat you up?” Costello pressed.

“Yeah! I know I’d get beat up,” Kiger insisted, adding that he would be “at least roughed up” by black church members.

Costello attempted to make a point about the way that members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church responded with kindness after they were targeted in a mass shooting.

But the CNN host quickly decided her words were lost on Kiger: “Never mind, I won’t go there.”

“These guys don’t really have a cause,” Kiger said of Black Lives Matter. “I don’t think they really care. If they did, they would go to Baltimore or they’d go to Chicago.”

Black Americans Twice as Likely to Be Roughed Up by the Police

No surprise here. Seems to be common practice in some parts of America…What is interesting here is that white people have more encounters with police than any other group – but are the least likely to be violently apprehended. Despite the fact whites are far more likely to be carrying a gun…

The new research also suggests a paradox: While blacks are significantly more likely than whites to be gun homicide victims, blacks are only about half as likely as whites to have a firearm in their home (41% vs. 19%). Hispanics are less likely than blacks to be gun homicide victims and half as likely as whites to have a gun at home (20%).


Specifically, the New York Police Department uncovered a weapon in one out of every 49 stops of white New Yorkers, while for Latinos a weapon was found for every 71 stops, and for African Americans that number was 93 stops.

Meanwhile, the likelihood that a stop of an African American New Yorker would yield contraband was one-third less than that of white New Yorkers stopped.

The NYPD uncovered contraband in one out every 43 stops of white New Yorkers. By contrast, it took the Department 57 stops of Latinos and 61 stops of African Americans to uncover contraband.

Furthermore the more conservative (ergo racist) a white person is, the more likely to carry a gun –

The analysis revealed that for every 1 point increase in the racism ranking, there was a 50 percent increase in the chance that the person owned a gun. Additionally, there was a nearly 30 percent increase in the chance that that person would also support the right to carry concealed guns. These results held true even after controlling for conservative politics, being from the South and harboring anti-government sentiments and other factors, Discovery News reports.

“Attitudes towards guns in many US whites appear to be influenced, like other policy preferences, by illogical racial biases,” the authors conclude. “The present results suggest that gun control policies may need to be implemented independent of public opinion.”

So, the likelihood of a POlice Officer confronting a white suspect who is armed, is far higher than the same situation with a black suspect. A suspect carrying a gun theoretically being subject to more aggressive behavior by police…except it isn’t.

Protesting While Black

Black Americans twice as likely as whites to face use of force by police: Justice Department

Black Americans are more than twice as likely as white people to have non-fatal force or the threat of it used against them during encounters with the police, according to a study by the US Department of Justice.

An analysis of tens of millions of face-to-face contacts between police and civilians over a decade found black people faced the use of force more often than white people in both street and traffic stops, despite being less likely to have encounters with officers overall.

The report follows months of protests around the US over the treatment of African Americans by law enforcement. An ongoing Guardian investigation has found black people are being killed by police at twice the rate of white people, and that those black people killed were twice as likely to have been unarmed.

Government researchers looking at the use of non-fatal force found that 3.5% of black people who had contact with police reported that during their most recent encounter officers either shouted, cursed or made threats; pushed, grabbed, hit or kick them; used pepper spray or a Taser; or pointed a gun or used some other form of force.

By comparison, 1.4% of white people and 2.1% of Hispanic people who encountered police reported a similar experience to the police-public contact survey (PPCS) by the Justice Department’s bureau of justice statistics.

While a majority of people across all races who had encounters involving the use or threat of force reported that the police’s actions were excessive and inappropriate, black people were the most likely to say this. People who were hit, kicked or had a gun pointed at them were most likely to make such complaints overall.

“Survey respondents defined what they considered to be the threat or use of force and whether it was excessive according to their perceptions of police behavior,” wrote the report’s authors. “Use of force and excessive were not defined for respondents.”

The report found that white people actually had a higher rate of contact with the police overall than people of ethnic minorities. In an average year, 20% of white Americans – almost 33 million – had a face-to-face encounter with police, compared with 17% of black people (almost 5 million) and 16% of Hispanic respondents, which equates to 4.4 million.

The researchers published their annual average statistics based on surveys that were conducted in 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2011. They said the rates and patterns they found did not change significantly over the years. Their study covered encounters such as stops and apprehensions by officers but also those in which police responded to a report of a crime or a request for help.

The study found that the vast majority of an average 44m yearly contacts between the police and civilians did not involve the use or threat of force, and that about 715,000 per year, or 1.6% of the total, did.

The White Right Strikes Back

Just this week, we have had 3 towheaded troglodyte racists threaten to kill students at Mizzou, a threat to do the same to students at Howard University, a swastika painted onto Bowie State University’s, MLK Student Center, death threats against black students at Michigan Technological University

Obviously, the protests which caught fire at Mizzou, and are now spreading around the country have the bigot set worried. So worried in fact, that bigot in chief, Donald Trump has denounced the demonstrations

Trump said the  demonstrations are “disgusting,” especially after the resignation of “weak, ineffective” campus officials, whom he believes caved to the “crazy” student demands. “Trump should have been the chancellor of that university,” he said. “Believe me, there would have been no resignations.”

Carson told Fox News late Wednesday that “we’re being a little bit too tolerant, I guess you might say, accepting infantile behavior.” He added: “To say that I have the right to violate your civil rights because you’re offending me is un-American. It is unconstitutional,” referring to the communications professor who infamously requested “muscle” to block reporters from accessing protests.

And the right wing press is scurrying to find “dirt”


Faux News – Missouri assistant professor resigns from courtesy appointment after confrontation with journalist


“Black Mob Violence”Colin Flaherty who also frequents WND

Faux News Megan Kelly on “Hate Speech” – That shouting racial perjoratives (and death threats) is …Free Speech.

Let’s look at what these folks are enabling –

For the fourth time this week, a racist threatened to massacre black college students — this time in Michigan

Another person has been arrested for making racist threats against black college students — this time in Michigan.

Police said they took a suspect into custody Thursday afternoon in connection with an anonymous threat posted on social media directed at students at Michigan Technological University, reported The Detroit News.

The university’s Department of Public Safety and Police Services spotted a message posted about noon Thursday on the Yik Yak social media platform and increased security on the Houghton campus.

The person who made the threat vowed he or she was “going to kill all black people,” authorities said.

Police immediately launched an investigation and alerted students of the threat by email.

No information was released about the suspect who was taken into custody several hours later.

The threat is at least the fourth made against black college students this week, after protests over campus racism at the University of Missouri ousted the university president.

Three Missouri men have been arrested and charged with terrorist threats, and authorities are investigating a racist threat made Wednesday against students at the historically black Howard University.

The threats follow two separate strings of suspicious fires earlier this year at mostly black churches in the southeast and then in the St. Louis area, following the shooting deaths of nine black worshipers at a historic black church in South Carolina by a white supremacist and the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in Ferguson.

Michigan Tech is a research university located in the Upper Peninsula, and only about 1.3 percent of the school’s nearly 7,000 students are black, according to Forbes.

“It’s important to remember that we are a community and will not tolerate threats to any member of our family,” said Michigan Tech President Glenn Mroz. “It’s time we watch out for one another.”

Yik Yak, an anonymous, geographically oriented social media network, has grown popular as a message board for college students — but the company turns over user information without a subpoena, court order or search warrant during investigations of violence or threats.

Texas Cops Kill Deputy

Another one of those “shoot first” situations.


Texas cops respond to suicide attempt, shoot Hispanic man — and then find out he’s a deputy

The mother of a Texas deputy said this week that Laredo police officers did not have a good reason to shoot and kill her son after they showed up at his apartment to respond to an attempted suicide.

The Laredo Morning Times reported on Monday that two female officers responded to a suicide attempt at around 11 a.m.

The department said that the officers opened fire after “repeated commands to the individual who was armed with a handgun.”

The man was identified as 25-year-old Cesar Cuellar, a Webb County sheriff’s deputy.

Cuellar’s mother later told KGNS that officers overreacted.

“Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, don’t shoot, please, please, please. It’s my son,” the mother recalled telling the officers, according to a translation provided by the station. “Both of them were pointing at him. My son was like this with the gun pointed down, not saying a word. He was surprised, he was frozen. He didn’t say a word. They had scared him.”

“They shot him, they shot him once and then it took a while and after another boom again. It wasn’t continuous but my son never lifted his gun. Never,” she insisted. “They shot him without having to, not one reason.”

The woman said that her son would not have justice until the Laredo officers had their “guns and badges taken away.”

In a statement, Laredo Police Chief Raymond Garner promised that there would be a full investigation into the case.

“The Laredo Police Department respectfully sends the family, friends and colleagues of Mr. Cesar Cuellar Jr it’s most sincerest condolences,” Garner said. “The Laredo Police Department is committed to conducting a thorough investigation into this case.”

“The Texas Rangers will also be conducting an independent investigation into this case to further ensure that all facts and evidentiary findings of this tragedy will be collected in the most thorough and transparent manner possible.”

White Supremacist Cult in Virginia At Center of Planned Mass Murders

Oden, Yoden…Whatever. More towheaded troglodytes serving the new reich much the same as their grandfathers did for HItler. The bigots have morphed from christian identity racism to Pagan identity racism, with only the racism remaining the same. The religious beliefs of people who follow Asatru have nothing to do with identity racism, fascism, or the sorts of violence the bigots are well known for…White supremacists have perverted that belief system to their own ends.

Inside Virginia’s Church-Burning Werewolf White Supremacist Cult

The FBI arrested two young men in Virginia on Tuesday for planning to start a race war by burning churches. But the Norse-inspired white supremacist cults they belonged to are all the rage in parts of Southern Virginia.

Viking-inspired white supremacists trying to terrorize black Christians in the South: not as rare as you think.

News broke yesterday that the FBI arrested two young men under the suspicion that they were planning to start a race war by bombing black churches in their home state of Virginia. The men, Robert Doyle and Ronald Chaney, allegedly ascribe to an Icelandic pagan faith called Asatru that has a disturbingly large following among white supremacists.

“Its Nordic/Teutonic mythology was a bedrock belief for key Third Reich leaders,” the Southern Poverty Law Center noted in a 1998 write-up, “and it was an integral part of the initiation rites and cosmology of the elite Schutzstaffel, which supervised Adolf Hitler’s network of death camps.”

The faith itself doesn’t seek to endorse or promulgate racist or anti-Semitic views. But you could be forgiven for thinking it does, given its strange appeal to Nazis and other sundry bigots.

Asatru is a pagan religion that draws on Norse mythology. It is related to Odinism,according the Southern Poverty Law Center, and some use the terms interchangeably. Its defenders say the religion itself isn’t inherently bigoted. But many white supremacists find it appealing because, unlike Christianity, it isn’t influenced by Judaism. If you think the KKK is soft on the Jews because it’s Christian-friendly, Asatru might be for you.

The SPLC notes that Odinism, which has ties to Asatru, played an important role in some corners of Nazism.

“Its Nordic/Teutonic mythology was a bedrock belief for key Third Reich leaders,” the group noted in a 1998 write-up, “and it was an integral part of the initiation rites and cosmology of the elite Schutzstaffel, which supervised Adolf Hitler’s network of death camps.” Asatru apologists seem to recognize that it has a bit of a PR problem.

Nazi affection for Asatru wasn’t a fluke. David Lane, a white supremacist terrorist who died in prison, promoted the religion while incarcerated. And it has gained significant traction in the prison population; the Anti-Defamation League wrote in a 2002 report that it was one of the faiths that incarcerated white supremacists found most often. The men arrested for allegedly trying to start a race war “may have met in prison, where all were des­ig­nated by prison offi­cials as white suprema­cists while in cus­tody,” the ADL notes.

“Accord­ing to the FBI, the sus­pects were adher­ents of a white suprema­cist vari­ety of Asatru­ism,” the group added.

And they aren’t the only young white men to target black churches in Virginia.

In 2012, Maurice Thompson Michaely pleaded guilty to arson—specifically, to charges of Unlawfully Entering Property of Another with the Intent to Damage and Maliciously Destroying or Defacing Church Property, according to the Bristow Beat. Michaely tried to burn down a historic black church, the 135-year-old Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The fire didn’t injure anyone since the building wasn’t occupied when he attempted to burn it down. However, the fire caused about $1 million of damage, according to ABC affiliate WJLA and he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.

According to social media screenshots on the Fools of Vinland blog, Michaely goes by the name Hjalti and is part of a group based outside Lynchburg, Va., called Wolves of Vinland.

When The Daily Beast reached out to the group via Facebook message, the person who runs the  account replied, “It doesn’t matter who we are, what matters is our plan.”…Read the rest here

Death Threats at Mizzou

As one would expect on a campus where racial epithets are hurled at minority students….

Mizzou police arrest suspect for death threats that spread fear on racially roiled campus

Barely a day after protesters buoyantly celebrated the resignation of top administrators, the University of Missouri’s Mel Carnahan quadrangle was eerily quiet on Tuesday night. The tents gone. Campus empty.

A storm is headed towards Columbia.

Students are praying it only delivers bad weather.

As thunderstorms approached from the west, Mizzou was shaken by another menace on Tuesday as anonymous threats were directed towards students of color.

As members of the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus met with student activists at a closed meeting Monday morning, an anonymous caller phoned in a threat to MU’s Oldham Black Culture Center.

“There was a call made to the Black Culture Center today a little before noon,” MU Police Maj. Brian Weimer told the Columbia Missourian. “It was perceived as threatening and we’re looking into it.”

As the day progressed, however, the threats turned to social media. Though their source and credibility were questionable, their ugliness was not and they stoked fears of a school shooting and driving students — particularly minorities — from campus dorms.

“I’m going to stand my ground tomorrow and shoot every black person I see,” read one post on the anonymous message app Yik Yak.

“Some of you are alright,” began another post. “Don’t go to campus tomorrow.”

“We’re waiting for you at the parking lots,” read a third anonymous post. “We will kill you.”

On Wednesday morning, campus police said they had caught the person responsible for the online threats.

“University of Missouri Police have apprehended the suspect who posted threats to campus on YikYak and other social media,” the departmentannounced on its Web site. “The suspect is in MUPD custody and was not located on or near the MU campus at the time of the threat.”
