Interesting quote on how the Mexican studies department of the University of Arizona adopted CRT.

In 2010, the Mexican American Studies Department Programs in Tucson, Arizona were effectively banned due to their connection to CRT, which was seen to be in violation of a recently-passed state law that “prohibits schools from offering courses that ‘advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals’.”[46] The ban included the confiscation of books, in some cases in front of students, by the Tucson Unified School District.[47] Matt de la Peña‘s young-adult novel Mexican WhiteBoy was banned for containing CRT.[48] However, this ban was later deemed unconstitutional on the grounds that the state showed discriminatory intent. “Both enactment and enforcement were motivated by racial animus,” federal Judge A. Wallace Tashima said in the ruling.[49]

Fascinating quote from the UK slavery video.

One of the factories near the garage that works on my cars was raided a few years back and several illegals were taken away. The owners believed my mechanic had reported them and they were attacked in broad daylight by a gang of men armed with bars and screwdrivers as a reprisal. The mechanic was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver and beaten with an iron bar and his staff were also beaten. The police arrested them all. There were several witnesses who had observed the attack.

But because they were of a certain peaceful religion (i.e. Muslim) all charges were dropped as the court refused to accept the evidence and called the eye-witnesses unreliable.

The police waiting for the firing to end so that they could enter the hotel room. They did not even exit the elevator where they knew the shooter’s floor was (the 32nd) but decided to “engage” by getting off on the 31st floor and then listening to the shots being fired.

“Holy s—. That’s rapid fire,” Hendrex is heard saying amid the sounds of Paddock unloading his rifle. “Oh my God,” he later says, before letting out an exasperated sigh.

Why Are the British Efforts to Stamp out West African Slavery So Little Known?

*https://acwm.org/blog/myths-misunderstandings-grant-slaveholder/

https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/rijksstudio/timeline-dutch-history/1863-abolition-of-slavery

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slave_Trade_Act_1807

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angola

The Act created fines for captains who continued with the trade. These fines could be up to £100 per enslaved person found on a ship. Captains would sometimes dump captives overboard when they saw Navy ships coming in order to avoid these fines.[12] The Royal Navy, which then controlled the world’s seas, established the West Africa Squadron in 1808 to patrol the coast of West Africa, and between 1808 and 1860 they seized approximately 1,600 slave ships and freed 150,000 Africans who were aboard.[13][3] The Royal Navy declared that ships transporting slaves were the same as pirates. Action was also taken against African leaders who refused to agree to British treaties to outlaw the trade, such as “the usurping King of Lagos“,[citation needed] who was deposed in 1851. Anti-slavery treaties were signed with over 50 African rulers.[14]

In the 1860s, David Livingstone‘s reports of atrocities within the Arab slave trade in Africa stirred up the interest of the British public, reviving the flagging abolitionist movement. The Royal Navy throughout the 1870s attempted to suppress “this abominable Eastern trade”, at Zanzibar in particular. In 1890 Britain handed control of the strategically important island of Heligoland in the North Sea to Germany in return for control of Zanzibar, in part to help enforce the ban on slave trading.[15][16]

There was substantially less enthusiasm for making cases against law enforcement officials. Only one police officer was ever charged, for reckless endangerment. And that indictment, along with the other convictions and pending charges, was wiped away in 1976 by a new governor, Hugh Carey, who pardoned all involved saying he wanted to “close the books.”

Given what he learned in his digging, such notions weren’t much of a stretch. Police had taken purposeful steps to obscure who did what that day, Bell found. Before storming the prison, police commanders ordered officers to remove their name tags. And although standard policy called for a record to be made of which weapons were issued to which officers, no one kept track when rifles were handed out to troopers. Also ignored was a requirement that officers fill out reports detailing the number of times they had discharged their weapons and why. When Bell pressed senior police officials about why no such reports were compiled after Attica he was told, with a straight face, that the reports were used only when officers had shot at animals.

In preparation to serve a search warrant on Mount Carmel, the ATF agents wanted to be trained by Special Forces at Ft. Hood and have the use of military helicopter and pilots. There was a problem with this request; federal law prohibited it unless the ATF paid. This is covered under two acts.  

The first is the Posse Comitatus Act, enacted in 1877, which has forbidden the military from being included in domestic law enforcement in any manner. This is logical since the military is supposed to be non-political. Historically, any place we’ve seen the military patrolling the citizens has quickly led to instability. The second law is the Economy Act which demands that civilian departments reimburse for any aid provided by the military unless the case has a “drug nexus.” For a drug case, the equipment and operators are free—for anything else the civilian agency pays. (This is Not an Assault, Hardy pp. 247-248) 

Did the ATF tell the Army at Ft. Hood the Branch Davidians were “cooking meth” to avoid paying them back for their training and manpower? According to now deceased Congressman Steven Schiff of New Mexico, ”In order for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to have obtained the military assistance they did receive, not because of the Posse Comitatus Act, but because of existing military policy, they misrepresented to the military that this was an anti-drug raid when it was never an anti-drug raid.” (Waco: Rules of Engagement, 40:20)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Martin_Luther_King_Jr.

Police found a package dumped close to the site, which included a rifle and binoculars, both with Ray’s fingerprints. Ray had purchased the rifle under an alias six days earlier. A worldwide manhunt was triggered, which culminated in the arrest of Ray at London‘s Heathrow Airport two months later.

Ray confessed to the assassination on March 10, 1969. On the advice of his attorney Percy Foreman, Ray took a guilty plea to avoid a conviction and potential death penalty. Ray was sentenced to a 99-year prison term; he recanted his confession three days later.[55]

Ray fired Foreman as his attorney and claimed a man he met in Montreal with the alias “Raul” was involved, as was Ray’s brother Johnny, but that he was not. He said through his new attorney Jack Kershaw that, although he did not “personally shoot King”, he may have been “partially responsible without knowing it”, hinting at a conspiracy. In May 1977, Kershaw presented evidence to the House Select Committee on Assassinations that he believed exonerated his client, but tests did not prove conclusive. Kershaw also claimed Ray was somewhere else when the shots were fired, but he could not find a witness to corroborate the claim.[56]

King had been targeted by COINTELPRO[81] and had also been under surveillance by military intelligence agencies during the period leading up to his assassination under the code name Operation Lantern Spike.[82]

What Are the Real Motivations Behind the George Floyd Protests?

These riots are therefore not about “justice for George Floyd.” They reflect irreconcilable differences between blacks and whites. These differences are largely inherent, but have been dangerously inflamed by media and intellectuals who have, wittingly or not, encouraged blacks to hate the police, to hate whites, and to hate the United States.

Interesting comment on this article.

It would be easier for blacks to be policed only by blacks if they’d all stay in their own segregated neighborhoods. Once they start committing crimes outside of those neighborhoods, and people call the police to deal with the situation, it’s more difficult to arrange for only black officers to show up to investigate.

The best answer is that blacks should stop doing things that require the police to show up, but everyone agrees that this option is off the table. It will never happen. They aren’t Asians.

Plus, I’ve read before that black-officer-on-black-perp violence is just as prevalent as white-officer-on-black-perp violence.

2nd Comment

You think anything would be different with black cops? If anything, the black cops would be more heavy handed and the “community” which would continue their usual crimes, would still be complaining about police brutality. I wonder how they would be treated by say, the police force of Kinshasha, Congo?

3rd Comment

You are right. The underlying problem isn’t just white cops; it’s the white man’s law that they hate even if black cops enforce it. It is a political problem with cultural roots.

When people of vastly different cultures live together, they get on each other’s nerves. When we do not agree on the basics of social order and we want to live under different rules, forcing us to live together inevitably results in conflict for which no amount of tolerance and understanding can possibly compensate. There is only one choice for such “communities”: separation of the groups into autonomous zones or centralized police-state control.

4rth Comment

A guy with a mullet just started smashing windows at the Lake Street library. Other protesters surrounded him and demanded he stop. “That’s the library, you f***! It’s an information source for the community,” one guy said.No worries. Nothing was stolen. They just have to replace the windows.

5th Comment

Yet they let them in here every day from the Caribbean, West and East Africa. Americans are not uniting to stop this. The VA is full of medical personnel from the Caribbean, Africa, and India. I noticed this since Bush when Americans were robbed of good-paying because they imported foreigners. I am tired of hearing that these invaders make less money. Whatever amount they make less is not that much less because none of them live in the ghetto; all of them have nice homes and money is no object because they are always traveling around the world. I have not known the East Indians to riot but they are a huge threat. Just look at what their country is like (beyond disgusting in more ways than one and they are criminally-inclined because they do commit fraud but once again the law is only applied to Americans) and their population has grown so much that it is almost as big as China’s.

Comment #6

Somalis are the worst of the worst. This is a known fact in Africa as well. I am hearing that a lot of their crimes are quickly buried in the news to not offend the Somali community.

Comment #7

Only problem is – Blacks and other non Whites never agree to stay in their Black areas or use their Black owned businesses – they want to go where things are better, where things are nice. It’s unfair Whites have nice, modern clean shopping Malls while the “Hood” only has Arab run convenience stores. Blacks and other non Whites will never agree to stay in their neighborhoods, their cities (Baltimore and Camden NJ), their countries Zambai, now Zimbabwe, Haiti – same with the worst Arabs, Muslims.

French gave up all of French Algeria – the entire White Pied Noir population of French Algeria was ethnically cleansed when Algeria was handed over to Arab Muslim majority rule. Arabs gave Whites two choices:

Coffin or the Suitcase – leave with just the clothes on their backs.

Once Algeria became Arab Muslim ruled, all White Pied Noir expelled, Arab Muslims are not happy – they want to go where things are better they want to go to….

France
Sweden

And then the whole thing starts all over again.

No – don’t concede White cities like Minneapolis to BlackLiesMatter Mobs or even the NOI who at least have some discipline.

Comment #8

People choose to believe the myths swarming around about the KKK. Their origin was shown in that film “The Birth of a Nation” based supposedly, on the recollections of the whites who lived after the freeing of slaves. Wild, low IQ freed blacks creating pure havoc. A militia later named KKK was formed in order to save lives and property. Every time a pic of a black swinging off a tree is shown to illustrate how terrible these whites where, I tell them to do some research and find out just what had occurred to bring this vigilante justice into action.

Comment #9

Blacks have issues with the police because they are constantly resisting and refusing to obey lawful orders. I can’t even count how many times I’ve conducted traffic stops where the black suspect would get out of the car and run. Countless. “Put your hands behind your back. You’re under arrest for XYZ”. Nope. A simple suspended DL situation would always turn into a resisting arrest, battery on LEO, fleeing, etc.

Did this also happen with whites? Of course. Just not at the rate of black folks.

Comment #10

Minnesota used to be one of the whitest places. Everything blacks touch, they kill.

I though until recently that Minnesota was a great place to escape non whites. What do we do just keep uprooting and leaving only for them to follow us?

When will it end?

Quotes from the Michael Brown incident.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.documentcloud.org/documents/1681212/doj-report-on-shooting-of-michael-brown.pdf

Wilson and other witnesses stated that Brown then reached into the SUV through the open driver’s window and punched and grabbed Wilson. This is corroborated by bruising on Wilson’s jaw and scratches on his neck, the presence of Brown’s DNA on Wilson’s collar, shirt, and pants, and Wilson’s DNA on Brown’s palm. While there are other individuals who stated that Wilson reached out of the SUV and grabbed Brown by the neck, prosecutors could not credit their accounts because they were inconsistent with physical and forensic evidence, as detailed throughout this report.

Wilson told prosecutors and investigators that he responded to Brown reaching into the SUV and punching him by withdrawing his gun because he could not access less lethal weapons while seated inside the SUV. Brown then grabbed the weapon and struggled with Wilson to gain control of it. Wilson fired, striking Brown in the hand. Autopsy results and bullet trajectory, skin from Brown’s palm on the outside of the SUV door as well as Brown’s DNA on the inside of the driver’s door corroborate Wilson’s account that during the struggle, Brown used his right hand to grab and attempt to control Wilson’s gun. According to three autopsies, Brown sustained a close range gunshot wound to the fleshy portion of his right hand at the base of his right thumb. Soot from the muzzle of the gun found embedded in the tissue of this wound coupled with indicia of thermal change from the heat of the muzzle indicate that Brown’s hand was within inches of the muzzle of Wilson’s gun when it was fired. The location of the recovered bullet in the side panel of the driver’s door, just above Wilson’s lap, also corroborates Wilson’s account of the struggle over the gun and when the gun was fired, as do witness accounts that Wilson fired at least one shot from inside the SUV.

Certain other witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts, admitting that they did not witness the shooting or parts of it, despite what they initially reported either to federal or local law enforcement or to the media. Prosecutors did not rely on those accounts when making a prosecutive decision.

In this case, crime scene detectives had to stop processing the scene as a result of two more reports of what sounded like automatic weapons gunfire in the area at 1:55 p.m. and 2:11 p.m., as well as some individuals in the crowd encroaching on the crime scene and chanting, “Kill the Police,” as documented by cell phone video.

On Lauren Southern

This article is not yet written.

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/10/alt-right-star-racist-propagandist-has-no-regrets/616725/

Southern was born in Surrey, British Columbia, one of Canada’s most racially and ethnically diverse cities. In her private Christian elementary school, many of the students were ethnically Chinese, she told me, though back then she didn’t pay much attention to race. Her father, however, began to feel like an outsider in his community, she said. While Southern called her dad “the least racist person I know,” she said he felt frustrated walking into coffee shops to find that his Asian neighbors wouldn’t address him in English. So when Lauren was in middle school, her father moved the family, which included her mother and her older sister, to Langley, one of greater Vancouver’s whitest towns.

Southern never cared much about her education. She spent much of her free time reading the fantasy novels of J. R. R. Tolkien and Robert Jordan. “My grades were garbage,” she said. “I was always more interested in whatever book that I had picked up from the library than the one I was assigned in class.” She says she was diagnosed with ADHD, but her parents didn’t want her to go on medication. She planned to join the military after high school.

But then, as she described it, she found a fight worth waging, right at home. One day in her social-justice class, the teacher asked everyone to separate by race and gender, according to Southern: white kids on one side, Black and brown on the other; boys on one side, girls on the other. The teacher turned to the female students of color: “You’re oppressed.” She pointed to the white kids—including Southern—and said two words that changed the course of her life: “You’re privileged.” (Her teacher denies that this ever occurred.)

Southern told me she was incensed. Her paternal grandfather had immigrated to Canada from Scandinavia with little money or knowledge of English. Her maternal grandmother was an orphan. Sure, her parents had raised her in one of Vancouver’s wealthiest suburbs, but they had earned it through “hard work” and “assimilation.” Plus, she was surrounded by “rich Asian kids,” who she believed enjoyed far more privilege than white girls like her.

Southern felt scapegoated when the class discussed topics like slavery or the ethnic cleansing of indigenous Canadians.

Southern found that she loved being a contrarian. She didn’t necessarily believe the things she said or did, she told me, but the power of making her teachers squirm was intoxicating.

Her rise to social-media stardom was meteoric. Trump’s nativist presidential campaign coincided with the explosive expansion of the far-right media ecosystem. The premier outlet at the time, Breitbart News, was run by the future White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and the Canadian media executive Ezra Levant had set out to create an equivalent site in his country. He called it Rebel Media and asked Southern to audition after meeting the young firebrand at an energy conference where she peppered the speakers with questions.

Southern, struggling at college while working as a cocktail waitress at a casino, seized the opportunity. She raced back to her high school, paid a student from A/V class a few hundred dollars, and worked with him to record her first viral hit: “Why I Am Not a Feminist.” Sporting the red lipstick and fake lashes that became her defining aesthetic, Southern asserted, “Despite popular belief, feminism is not, in fact, a synonym for equality.” To her shock, the four-minute video took off, reaching 1.2 million viewers on YouTube and another 30 million on Facebook.

Southern dropped out of college and relocated to Toronto, where Rebel’s offices were located. Each week, her videos seemed to grow more inflammatory and offensive. She converted her state-registered gender to male as a critique of Canada’s “lax” policy toward gender transition; she traveled to a refugee camp in France to prove that the asylum seekers there were “economic migrants,” not Syrian refugees as the mainstream media reported.

Southern’s videos were more extreme than he was used to seeing, even among denizens of his world. Southern will “end up, you know, probably getting killed,” he predicted after she visited a town in England with a large Muslim population to hand out flyers claiming, “Allah is gay.” This particular stunt caused the authorities to ban her from the United Kingdom.

Two months before, I’d trailed after her to Moscow, where she’d planned to interview oligarchs, Kremlin sycophants, and other far-right influencers for a documentary she hoped would be a corrective to what she saw as America’s irrational fear of Russia. But to her consternation, she found Putin’s Russia to be alienating. The food was unappealing, the taxi drivers invented rates depending on their mood, and people on the street had little interest in being interviewed. And few of them spoke English.

Like you see girls that do a political video, and if they put their boobs up and out, they’ll get 500,000 extra views. It’s clickbait. It works,” she told me. She didn’t do that, she added, but she also rarely appeared on camera without being fully made up.

Southern decided to abandon the Russian documentary, but by the fall of 2018 she had a new project: Borderless, about the migrant crisis in Europe. When I joined her in October, she had already been on the road for more than a month. We met at a chateau an hour outside Paris, which she’d booked to recharge while her crew was off shooting around Europe. I’d been the one to suggest the chateau, where I was also staying, and which was far enough outside of Paris to be relatively affordable.

She was so worried about getting hit on by far-right figures that she refused to attend fund-raising meetings without a chaperone. Even McInnes had not stopped sending flirtatious messages to her, she said.
