Black Racist, Joy-Ann Reid, Makes Charges Against the White House

Joy-Ann Reid: Trump Has White Nationalists In The White House: Stephen Miller, Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, Mike Anton

 

“JOY ANN REID: One of the reasons that Donald Trump cannot properly respond to what was an obvious proper response from an America president is the people in his government. Who’s writing the talking points that he was looking down and reading from?

He has people like Stephen Miller, claimed as a mentee by Richard Spencer, who is an avowed, open white nationalist. He has Steve Bannon, who’s been allowed to meld into the normalcy of a governmental employee, but who ran breitbart.com, which I reread today the post that’s still on their website where they self-describe as the home of the alt-right. What is the alt-right? It’s a dressed-up term for white nationalism. They call themselves white identitarianism. They say that the tribalism that’s inherent in the human spirit ought to be also applied to white people.

What is who is in his government. Sebastian Gorka, who wore the medal of Vitezi Rend, a Nazi organization, being paid by the taxpayer in the government of Donald Trump. The former Publius Decius blogger, Michael Anton, in the government. He is surrounded by these people. It isn’t both sides. They’re in the White House with him…….”   There’s more below:

CNN and MSNBC Advertise Their Leftist Racism by Attacking the President’s Balanced Response to Virginia’s Street War

WHAT IS WRONG WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATEMENTS ON CHARLOTTESVILLE? [WITH COMMENT BY PAUL]

As Scott has noted, President Trump has come under fire for not singling out white supremacists for condemnation following the violent clashes in Charlottesville. Trump has made several statements about those events, both orally and on Twitter. He condemned “in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.” He added: “It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time.”

His tweets have mostly been calls for unity:

We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one 

12:19 PM – Aug 12, 2017  Today the White House released an additional statement that specifically addressed white supremacist groups:

The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.

Trump’s various statements have failed to satisfy just about everybody, including many Republicans–Scott, for one. Trump’s position may or may not be politically wise, but I am sympathetic to it. What his critics want him to do is denounce white supremacist groups to the exclusion of anyone else. The problem with his statements, in the eyes of critics, is they are too even-handed. Trump’s denunciation includes both the white supremacists in Charlottesville and the fascist “antifas” who counter-protested, as well as other hate groups.

This seems entirely appropriate to me, as the Charlottesville violence resulted in large part from the fact that the “antifas” showed up, spoiling for a fight. The videos I have seen suggest that the “antifas” were at least as responsible for the violent clashes as the white supremacists. Both deserve to be repudiated, and fascists who riot and try to shut down other people’s speech are just as reprehensible as racists.

So why are the critics so eager to force the president to single out the white supremacists? Because they want to tie him to the “alt-right.” They want an implicit admission from President Trump that the nuts who marched in Charlottesville and the man who drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters had something to do with him. The Associated Press says:

Trump’s critics pointed to the president’s racially tinged rhetoric as exploiting the nation’s festering racial tension.

What “racially tinged rhetoric” is that? The AP doesn’t say. It quotes one such critic, the Mayor of Charlottesville, who explicitly ties the president to the white supremacists:

I’m not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you’re seeing in America today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president.

This is, I think, an outrageous slander, and I am sure the president agrees.

The Democrats are eager to take advantage of the fact that James Fields, who drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing at least one, was one of the white supremacist demonstrators. His act was reprehensible and those of us who still favor capital punishment would likely find him eligible for it. But where were the Democrats when James Hodgkinson tried to assassinate Republican Congressmen, grievously wounding Majority Whip Steve Scalise?

Hodgkinson wasn’t a member of some obscure left-wing fringe group. Rather, he was a union activist, rabid Democrat and Bernie Sanders campaign worker. Did the Democrats tell us that his act was symbolic of life in Bernie Sanders’ America? No.

The reality is that there is far too much political violence. It is all unacceptable–fascist “antifas” rioting at the inauguration of President Trump, left-wing students and hangers-on rioting and committing assault at places like Berkeley, Middlebury and Claremont, mainstream Democrats like James Hodgkinson trying to assassinate political opponents, murderers inspired by Black Lives Matter killing policemen, and fringe fanatics like James Fields similarly committing murder. I am evidently in the minority, but I think President Trump is right to condemn all political violence rather than singling out the one incident that Democrats want to talk about, while whitewashing the rest.

PAUL ADDS: I’m with John on this one for the reasons I gave yesterday. In addition, as John says, the assertion that President Trump needs to condemn alt-right hate groups because some members have expressed support for him is basically a call, witting or not, for Trump to give credence to the slanderous narrative that these groups have something to do with him.

Disorder in Charlottesville, Va…..

I worked this morning.  I returned home shortly after 1:30 and began to gather lunch.   Turned on television….to the usual leftist fascists at CNN and then to the often  confused reporters at Fox News.  Both opposing teams were extra excited.   Something had happened in the news which  could really cash in on ratings.

I early on discovered the happening was in Charlottesville, Virginia.    Some vehicle, a CNNer reported, had slammed into a crowd of protesters and had thrown some participants  into the air with the intentional effort.  The adversaries were clearly identified.

“White nationalists” the usual CNN leftisers reported,  “intimated”, led by President Trump-fan, former head guru of the KKK, David Duke, they salivated  with excitement, had caused the disorder……but failed to  mention which political case group, the White nationalists, or the usual Obama Leftists, obstructionists out for a lark to disrupt something American was responsible for the assault.   They were far too black racially motivated by the event.

CNN starred Democrat Party’s Black Nationalist, head of the well funded, black racist NAACP, led by black racist, Cornell Brooks.    He ranted black  racism victimhood.

After thirty minutes of listening to the horror event ala CNN, and still not aware of  who and really what had  caused the car assault, I turned to Fox “News”.  Nearly  30 minutes of Fox News swam by before the cause for the rioting was put in order.

Both CNN and Fox were counting the time it would take until they got a statement from the President.  Neither are the President’s  fans.  Fascist news center CNN repeatedly emphasized that David Duke was a devoted supporter of President Trump…..and therefore by frequency, was instructing viewers to hate Our Donald.

Fox News eventually clarified the sequence of events.    The Leftist out for their Saturday holiday were protesting the “White Nationalists” who had been protesting for their Saturday holiday.   A Dodge vehicle had slammed into a Leftist meld.  Its driver had made a getaway.   It seems the attack was against the Saturday Leftists.

The largest racist political institution in America is the NAACP…..Its head KKK person, is at present, leftist guru, Cornell Brooks.   The black congressional caucus is an American Congress institution.  It is designated, limited to BLACK MEMBERSHIP ONLY.   Washington apparently is still  awaiting new orders from the dictators arising from  our more recent Islamic “settlers” regarding their political requirements in our tumbling democracy’s E Pluribus Unum.

Don’t damn blacks racists, Islamists, feminist fascists for their evil and our American collapse.  BLAME ITS FAKE NEWS FOLKS IN THE PRESS,  SCHOOLS,  AND TODAY’S  DEMOCRAT PARTY……and perhaps even a good amount on  the GOP wusses…..BUT NOT OUR DONALD!

When will our American blacks stop their murderous habits?  Where?  At CNN where their evil is encouraged by the hate America crowd?

THE MOST RACIST CROWD IN OUR AMERICA TODAY IS BLACK BY COLOR.  IT   LEARNS ITS EVIL TRADE IN AMERICAN SCHOOLS, UNIVERSITIES, THE NEWS INDUSTRY, FROM LEFTIST DEMOCRATS, AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

David Duke seems to be a civilized American.   Cornell Brooks is extremely arrogant, obnoxious, and energetic in his office.   He would deny his racism….as all leftists do…..Perhaps the Federal Government could initiate a nationwide office with funding titled, “THE UNITED STATES OFFICE FOR THE  UNIFICATION OF  NATIONAL RACISM”.

Note:  Regarding  Orientals who are almost always bystanders in these American racial competitions, my advice is “STAY WHO YOU ARE…BYSTANDERS!”   Then, please raise a lot of American children to help secure a more viable democratic and peaceful American future.

(It is difficult to discern who the Nazis are at the Charlottesville, Virginia.   Follow the New York Times’ article below

Violence erupted on Saturday as hundreds of white nationalists had gathered here for a rally and clashed with counterprotesters, resulting in at least one death and prompting the governor to declare a state of emergency.

After the rally at a city park was dispersed, a car plowed into a crowd near the city’s downtown mall, killing at least one person and injuring at least 19 others, according to a spokeswoman for the University of Virginia Medical Center. The authorities did not immediately say whether the episode was related to the white nationalists’ demonstration, but several witnesses and video of the scene suggested that it might have been intentional.

Emergency medical personnel treated eight people, the Charlottesville Police Department said. It was not immediately clear how severely they had been hurt. Several area hospitals did not return telephone calls seeking information.

Witnesses said a crowd of counterdemonstrators, jubilant because the white nationalists had left, was moving up Fourth Street, near the mall, when a gray sports car came down the road and accelerated, mowing down several people and hurling at least two in the air.

“It was probably the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Robert Armengol, who was at the scene reporting for a podcast he hosts with students at the University of Virginia. “After that it was pandemonium. The car hit reverse and sped and everybody who was up the street in my direction started running.”

Saturday afternoon, after initially issuing a brief denunciation on Twitter, President Trump, speaking at the start of a veterans’ event at his golf club in New Jersey, again addressed what he described as “the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia.”

In comments from Bedminister, N.J., President Trump condemned the bloody protests. But he did not specifically criticize the white nationalist rally and its neo-Nazi slogans beyond blaming “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.”

“It’s been going on for a long time in our country, it’s not Donald Trump, it’s not Barack Obama,” said Mr. Trump, adding that he had been in contact with Virginia officials. After calling for the “swift restoration of law and order,” he offered a call for unity among Americans of “all races, creeds and colors.”

The demonstration, which both organizers and critics had said was the largest gathering of white nationalists in recent years, was organized to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee from a city park that once bore the name of the Confederate general, but was renamed Emancipation Park.

The turmoil in Charlottesville began with a march Friday night by white nationalists on the campus of the University of Virginia and escalated Saturday morning as demonstrators from both sides gathered in the park. Waving Confederate flags, chanting Nazi-era slogans, wearing helmets and carrying shields, the white nationalists converged on the Lee statue and began chanting phrases like “You will not replace us” and “Jews will not replace us.”

Hundreds of counterprotesters — religious leaders, Black Lives Matter activists and anti-fascist groups known as “antifa” — quickly surrounded the crowd, singing spirituals, chanting and carrying their own signs.

The morning started peacefully, with the white nationalists gathering in McIntire Park, outside downtown, and the counterdemonstrators — including Cornel R. West, the Harvard University professor and political activist — gathering at the First Baptist Church, a historically African-American church here. Professor West, who addressed the group at a sunrise prayer service, said he had come “bearing witness to love and justice in the face of white supremacy.”

At McIntire Park, the white nationalists waved Confederate flags and other banners. As a photographer took pictures, one of them, who gave his name only as Ted because he said he might want to run for political office some day, said he was from Missouri, and added, “I’m tired of seeing white people pushed around.”

But by 11 a.m., after both sides had made their way to Emancipation Park, the scene had exploded into taunting, shoving and outright brawling.

Barricades encircling the park and separating the two sides began to come down, and the police temporarily retreated. People were seen clubbing one another in the streets, and pepper spray filled the air. One of the white nationalists left the park bleeding, his head wrapped in gauze.

Declaring the gathering an unlawful assembly, the police had cleared the area before noon, and the Virginia National Guard arrived as officers began arresting some who remained. But fears lingered that the altercation would start again nearby, as demonstrators dispersed in smaller groups.

Within an hour, politicians, including Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, and the House speaker, Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, a Republican, had condemned the violence.

The first public response from the White House came from the first lady, Melania Trump, who wrote on Twitter: “Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let’s communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Justice Department agents would support local and state officials in an investigation of Saturday’s events.

“This kind of violence is totally contrary to American values and can never be tolerated,” Mr. Sessions said in a statement.

 

Protestor Brit Actress “Pooped out” While Invading Farmer’s Property

 Arrogance and Emma Thompson, Actress
Despite the courts telling her that she couldn’t come onto private property to host her fracking protest, Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson obviously thought she was above the law given her celebrity status. In defiance of the court system, she and her sister Sophie entered a local farm with a small group of other protesters. There, the two spoiled brats set up their bake sale where they displayed energy-themed cakes as part of a Greenpeace-backed protest stunt.
The farmer who owned the land wasn’t having any of this; so shortly after witnessing the trespassers, he cranked up his tractor with the manure sprayer hooked to the back of it. You’ll love this. 
 
This is my kind of guy…….

Daily Garbage Folks “Joe” at Junk News MSNBC IRK the PRESIDENT

I don’t merely like Our Donald, I adore the President….for being Donald Trump, the President.  He is a builder, an American builder.  He, unlike the today’s lefty dishonest, devious communist-socialist dictatorship world of the Obama criminal  lords and lordesses,  has a tremendous sense of pride from his past achievements in the world of business.

He has the guts to fight the Obama corrupt establishment which includes the conniving recently fired greasy FBI director James Comey.

President Donald Trump loves his country.  He’s horrified to have witnessed its decay, moral, economic, spiritual, political, its forfeiture as a country, one without borders, purpose and soul, one where leftist fascism already controls its schools, its press, its major cities welcoming illegal immigrants to swell the communist-socialist-feminist ranks controlling government power, ignoring Constitutional law.

This President tweets.  “How dare he!”, neoCommunist Democrats and the pinched and pompous among the Republicans and Charles Krauthammer whine.

That former president, Obama, lied, sneered, and bragged, ‘speeched’ sticking   up his nose to the duped audiences  while building his  socialist dictatorship to secure  the endless invasion of illegals he encouraged and protected in leftist sanctuary cities.  He could rely on his communication ‘posts’…the leftist New York Times, Washington Post, the associated press, CNN, NBC, ABC, PBS, CBS, CSpan, MSNBC, USA Today, along with bits and pieces of established FOX.

Tweet as you wish, Dear Donald.   Defend your right as a free American to speak or write your piece of today’s troubled American puzzle.    DON’T SHARE YOUR TAX RETURNS WITH US EITHER.   IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS unless you turn Hillary on us!

Universities to “Return” Beliefs to Aboriginal Basics?

IS IT THE NEW YORK TIMES, OR THE ONION?

“A friend sent me a link to this New York Times article, published on Monday, that is headlined “A College Built for Canadian Settlers Envisions an Indigenous Future.” It reads like a parody, but I have verified that the Times actually did publish it. It is about how universities across Canada are “indigenizing.” I will turn the floor over to my friend; the comments on the Times piece are his.

The college was built in the last century, modeled on the great American and British universities. It was imagined as a grand preserve of Western thought for the children of Canadian settlers, then flooding into the country’s youngest province in the prairies. …

Now, all that has changed. Universities across Canada are “indigenizing” — a new, elastic term that means everything from drawing more aboriginal students and faculty members onto campuses built largely for white settlers, to infusing those stodgy Western institutions with aboriginal belief systems and traditional knowledge.
***
Two smaller Canadian institutions introduced indigenous learning requirements for all undergraduates this past school year.

Hilarious! Yes, those “stodgy Western institutions” like Oxford, Cambridge, Paris, Bologna, Harvard and Yale. Sure…let’s “infuse[e]” them with “aboriginal belief systems and traditional knowledge” whatever that is…..

Of course, this is a problem:

Aboriginal scholars say that colonial education philosophies and aboriginal theories of knowledge are incompatible.

Just laughable! I can’t wait to compare and contrast “aboriginal theories of knowledge” with Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant and Wittgenstein…for starters…and I can’t wait to see, to paraphrase a snide remark made in a not dissimilar context, who is the Dostoyevsky of the aboriginals? (Answer: Dostoyevsky is the Dostoyevsky of the aboriginals — a universal, non-tribal greatness accessible even to aboriginals, raising them up as he raised up his own cultural confreres. That is the greatness of those “stodgy” universities.)

I’m also looking forward to all aboriginal “theories of knowledge” concerning physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics, architecture…who is the aboriginal Euclid, Newton, Maxwell, Einstein, Gauss, etc. ad infinitum.

This, however, has to be among the most fatuous, risible and utterly clueless remarks uttered by a university factotum, and there is plenty of recent competition:

Even Peter Stoicheff, the university’s president, recognizes the challenges.

Universities are so inherently white and Western, when you start to push against it, you realized how intractable a lot of that is,” Mr. Stoicheff said.

Everything is based on reading stuff,” he explained. “Everything is laid out in a hierarchical and linear fashion. Look at the aboriginal ways, from visual expression to the wampum belt, dances and oral storytelling. It’s not linear. Everything is based on the circle.”

“Universities are so inherently white and Western.” Well, duh! One of the great glories of our civilization, and one which the benighted of any tribe are invited to partake of!

This, however, IS right out of The Onion: “Everything is based on reading stuff.” Beyond belief.

Note, too, the New York Times using, intentionally and deliberately, left-wing terms of political correctness: “white settlers,” “colonial educational philosophies” and, of course “indigenous” and “aboriginal”. As the “woke” multi-cultural left well knows, “settler” is an especially loaded term. The anti-Israeli left uses it to describes Jews, and the ANC in South Africa to describe Dutch origin Afrikaners —- with the shared slogan, “one settler, one bullet”.

But you’ll never see the “woke” multicultural New York Times and its rabid left wing allies use the term to describe “refugees,” “migrants” or “undocumented workers” (“immigrants”), will you? So, the Canadians are “white settlers” but the waves of Asian and Muslims arriving are “immigrants.” OK. I wonder what they think of “aboriginal theories of knowledge.”

That was all from my friend. The Times article also says this:

Last year, the academic governing body agreed that all of the 17 colleges and schools, from dentistry to engineering, should include indigenous knowledge.

I am not sure what the Stone Age engineering of Native Americans can teach modern engineering students, but I know this for sure: when it comes to “indigenous” dentistry, count me out!”
