  • If We’re Tearing Down White Supremacy, Start With Planned Parenthood

    The Federalist ^ | 08/15/2017 | Daniel Payne
    It is a rich if tragic irony that the same progressives denouncing Richard Spencer and demanding that municipal statues be torn down for their alleged white supremacist qualities are themselves closely aligned with a white supremacist-tied group. I am speaking, of course, of Planned Parenthood, which is to the abortion-loving Left what Adolf Hitler’s bunker would have become to fascists had Germany not demolished it in the late 1980s: a sort of holy shrine upon which adulation and adoration can be fixated. The racist, eugenicist roots of Planned Parenthood are well-documented, as is the paranoid racial and eugenic visions of...

    Will They Be Removed?: 30 Places Named After Former Klansman Robert Byrd August 16, 2017 That's just a few. Since we're gonna rename schools and take down every sign and statue of people who have a controversial past. Are we also going to include Former Klansman and Grand Wizard Robert Byrd? If we are consistent, these are some places named after Robert KKK Byrd that should be taken down. You won't see this on cable news.
  • JUSTICE: Authorities Just Gave Protesters Who Tore Down Statue Some BAD News

    08/16/2017 10:26:06 AM PDT · by SandRat
    A woman who claims she took part in the toppling of the Confederate statue with a group of protesters in North Carolina has been arrested and is facing several charges. Takiyah Thompson, 22, was taken into custody on Tuesday by Durham County sheriff’s deputies shortly after protesters held a news conference at North Carolina Central University where she identified herself as the person who climbed a ladder to the top to tie a rope around the monument before the crowd tore it down on Monday. She can be seen in video showing the moments before the Confederate statue was toppled....

    A group of antifascist protesters armed with purple shields and bats showed up to the Wednesday funeral of a woman mowed down by a white supremacist who struck her with a vehicle. Antifa, a collection of left-wing protesters, decided to crash the funeral of Heather Heyer, a white woman who died after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of protesters during a white nationalist riot. The antifascist activists claimed they showed up armed because “the police won’t protect the people,” according to a reporter on the scene. Heyer died during a white supremacist rally over the potential...

    When I was young, I was taught to hate Black conservatives. I regarded African-Americans like Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson as Uncle Toms and sellouts. However, after the age of Barack Obama, I had to reassess my thinking about Clarence Thomas. Was he right all along and the civil rights establishment wrong? What have Black Republicans done, how have they harmed the Black community? How has being loyal to Democrats benefited the Black masses? Recently, the civil rights establishment jumped on Steve Harvey and Ray Lewis for meeting privately with Donald Trump. It gets irritating that the liberal establishment hand-picks...

    Hill ^ | 08/15/17 | Max Greenwood
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush urged President Trump on Tuesday to act as a voice for "moral clarity" and more forcefully reject racism and hate groups. In a series of tweets, Bush, who once battled Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said the president should quit parsing blame for the recent violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., on various groups and call instead for unity. This is a time for moral clarity, not ambivalence. 1/3 — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 16, 2017 I urge @POTUS to unite the country, not parse the assignment of blame for the events in Charlottesville. 2/3...
  • It’s Time To Blow Up Mount Rushmore

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/15/2017 | Scott Greer
    If the Left takes follows the course of its own logic, then there’s one landmark they should want to blow up ASAP — besides Stone Mountain. It’s Mount Rushmore. All four presidents carved into stone on the mountain would be called white supremacists today. So it would make sense for our progressive nation to wipe them from the face of the landmark. Let’s start with Washington. He owned slaves. He approved the Naturalization Act of 1790 that restricted citizenship to “free white men.” He also earned the nickname “Town Destroyer” from the Iroquois for he fought against Indian tribes. Jefferson...

    Babylon Bee ^ | 8/16/17 | Staff
    WORLD—In a statement that surprised nearly no one, Satan, the accuser and enemy of God and His people, paused briefly from roaming the earth seeking someone to devour Wednesday to confirm to reporters that he is responsible for the entire white supremacist movement worldwide. “Oh yeah, that’s all me. For sure,” said the wicked one Lucifer, adding that he’s “really been on a roll lately with this particular gig.” “I’m quite proud of this hell-filling racket. It’s as anti-biblical as anything can be, causing human beings made in the image of God to be seen as subhuman and expendable, but...

    The American Conservative ^ | 08/13/2017 | Rod Dreher
    Charlottesville is the kind of America that identity politics is calling into being. It’s time for straight talk about that. On the Right, the story is fairly straightforward. Neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and their ilk have to be condemned in no uncertain terms, and marginalized. The president’s coy rhetoric, dancing around these people for fear of alienating them, has to end. (I don’t expect it to end, but others on the Right need to speak up to condemn him.) It is not enough for conservative politicians and thought leaders to condemn these incidents. In their rhetoric, they need to start criticizing...

    During a visit to Spain early Sunday morning, President Obama defended the Black Lives Matter movement and the right of activists to demonstrate in cities across the United States, following a long night of ongoing protests over the highly public deaths last week of two black men at the hands of police. "One of the great things about America is that individual citizens and groups of citizens can petition their government, can protest, can speak truth to power," Mr. Obama told reporters in Madrid. "And that is sometimes messy and controversial but because of that ability to protest and engage...

    California has a history of going it alone to protect the environment. Now, as US President Donald Trump pulls back on climate science and policy, scientists in the Golden State are sketching plans for a home-grown climate-research institute — to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars per year. The initiative, which is backed by California’s flagship universities, is in the early stages of development. If it succeeds, it will represent one of the largest US investments in climate research in years. The nascent ‘California Climate Science and Solutions Institute’ would fund basic- and applied-research projects designed to help...

    The Beatles were always breaking new ground, and on August 15, 1965, they did so again by essentially creating the stadium tour, as detailed in Ron Howard’s new doc on the band’s years on the road, “Eight Days a Week.” On that date, the group played before a record crowd of 55,600 at the then-brand new William A Shea Municipal Stadium in Queens, NY. The event was filmed for posterity by their manager, Brian Epstein, and Ed Sullivan’s Sullivan Productions for a television special, a 30 minute edit of which, representing most of the concert, can be seen exclusively in...

    The FBI has "reopened" its consideration of a request for records on the infamous 2016 tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, the group behind that request told Fox News. American Center for Law and Justice President Jay Sekulow called the development a “positive sign,” in an interview Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.” Sekulow said the FBI sent him a letter saying it had reopened his Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the June 2016 meeting. At first, the FBI and DOJ said they did not have documents detailing the tarmac meet-up,...

    President and CEO of 3M, Inge Thulin, announced Wednesday he is leaving President Donald Trump's Manufacturing Council. "I joined the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in January to advocate for policies that align with our values and encourage even stronger investment and job growth — in order to make the United States stronger, healthier and more prosperous for all people. After careful consideration, I believe the initiative is no longer an effective vehicle for 3M to advance these goals. As a result, today I am resigning from the Manufacturing Advisory Council," Thulin said in a statement posted to 3M's Twitter account.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made his first appearance on "Morning Joe" this week Wednesday to light into President Donald Trump for his press conference that blamed "both sides" for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Scarborough said Trump was now officially the president of the white nationalist movement after Trump received praise from former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. "You had David Duke and other white nationalists actually praising the President of the United States for his words, and why not? He has now officially become the president … not only of America but also of the white nationalist movement,"...

    The 1924 Democrat National Convention, also called the Klanbake, was held at the Madison Square Garden in New York City from June 24 to July 9, 1924. Maybe this was where Democrat and former KKK member Robert Byrd got his start. This seems too crazy, even for liberals, to be true, but you can Google ‘Klanbake” and discover the authenticity of how involved the Democrat party has been involved with the KKK. Liberals Aren’t Liking This Newly-Discovered Photo Of The 1924 Democrat Convention… The Ku Klux Klan was resurrected after the 1915 release of D.W. Griffith’s very popular motion picture...

    Former president George H.W. Bush and his son George W.

    The mainstream media slams at President Donald Trump came in fast and furious on the heels of his August 15  press conference in which he again talked about violence at Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend. Among the biggest critics was the New York Times which seemed to be upset with Trump blaming "both sides," the white nationalists and Antifa for the violence. Here is a bit of their criticism which you can see in their title, Trump Defends Initial Remarks on Charlottesville; Again Blames ‘Both Sides’:
  • FOX has gone TOO far progressive, liberal and a snow storm of snowflakes. (my rant)

    Been watching FOX and MSM the last couple of days. Getting tired of trying to tell them apart based on their guests' stances on political/Trump issues on everything current and past. Juan Williams seems to be empowered and out of ranting control talking over people and yelling. Him along with a couple of females and Sheppie are repulsively biased which is now festered and oozing out.
