Rioter throws Molotov cocktail at group of Portland police officers, striking one, as mob sets fire to justice center following Breonna Taylor indictment

A Portland, Oregon, rioter reportedly
threw a Molotov cocktail at a group of police officers on Wednesday night as law enforcement declared the demonstrations in the area a riot.

Reports say that rioters also set fire to the city’s justice center.

Demonstrations in the city continued following the
announcement of a criminal indictment of one officer involved in the death of Louisville, Kentucky, resident Breonna Taylor. You can read more on the indictment here.

Following the announcement, riots
erupted in cities across the country.

What are the details?

According to Newsweek, demonstrators gathered in Portland’s streets following the indictment of former police officer Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree.

The Portland Police Bureau
announced that at least 74 people gathered on the Central Precinct side of the city’s Justice Center, where they reportedly “began throwing softball-sized rocks towards Central Precinct, which shattered the glass windows above the entry doors.”

The demonstrators converged on the precinct, and a riot broke out as protesters began to set fire to the building.

The bureau’s statement added, “The group continued to throw rocks through the windows, which continued to shatter glass in the entryway of the Central Precinct, making it difficult for others to safely exit the precinct due to the glass falling and the glass that covered the entryway floor.”

“Once the window was broken, group members used slingshots to launch projectiles at a high velocity through the broken glass windows of Central Precinct,” the statement continued. “Some members of the group attempted to break into the front doors of the Central Precinct lobby.”

While on the streets, police moved in on the unruly group, and at least one demonstrator threw a Molotov cocktail at a group of officers.

Authorities later attempted to clear the crowd by firing pepper balls and deploying pepper spray on the mob after declaring a riot.

The bureau added, “Officers began to disperse the crowd outside of Central Precinct again and a Molotov cocktail was thrown towards officers striking one in the foot. Portland Fire Medic was nearby and able to extinguish the flames. Had this incendiary not been stopped immediately, it could have caused serious physical injury to the officer. A second Molotov cocktail was thrown towards officers near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street, and a third Molotov cocktail was thrown at officers near Southwest Broadway and Southwest Main Street. As the crowd was dispersed they aggressively threw rocks at officers and other projectiles.”

Twitter user Pierce Singgih shared video of the incident on Twitter, writing, “[S]omeone just threw a Molotov at Portland Police as officers moved in and declared the event a riot.”

Black Lives Matter Intelwars LeBron James NBA Police Racism

LeBron James denies responsibility for violent attacks on police: ‘Not one time have I ever said let’s act violent toward cops’

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James denied that his criticisms of police treatment of minorities have contributed to or motivated violent attacks against police officers, USA Today reported.

James said he is just calling for accountability for police officers, but is not condoning or inciting violence against law enforcement officers.

“Not one time have I ever said let’s act violent toward cops,” James told reporters after a game Tuesday. “I just said what’s going on in our community is not okay. And we fear for that, and we fear for our lives. It’s something that we go through every single day as a black man, a black woman, and a black kid and a black girl, we fear that moment where we’re pulled over.”

James said he doesn’t believe all police should be demonized, but he’s seen and heard of numerous instances of racism by cops.

“I’ve never in my 35 years ever condoned violence,” James also said Tuesday. “I never have. But I also know what right is right and what wrong is wrong. I grew up in the inner city and the black community in what we call ‘the hood’ or ‘the ghetto,’ however you want to picture it. I’ve seen a lot of accounts first-hand of black people being racially profiled because of our color. I’ve seen it throughout my whole life. I’m not saying that all cops are bad. Throughout high school and things of that nature, and I’m around them all the time, and they’re not all bad.

“But when you see the videos of what’s going on, and you see them not only in my hometown, but all over America, you continue to see the acts of violence toward my kind, I can’t do nothing but speak about it and see the common denominator,” James said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said James should match a $100,000 reward for the person who shot two sheriff’s deputies. The two deputies were shot by a person who walked up to their car and opened fire before fleeing, in what appeared to be a targeted ambush of the deputies.

The shooter fled, and police do not yet have a suspect in the shooting. The reward has since been increased to $675,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. James dismissed Villanueva’s comments.

“I have zero response on the sheriff,” James said.

Black Lives Matter Boycotts Costco Intelwars Palmetto cheese Pimento cheese Social Media Twitter

Costco reportedly yanks Palmetto Cheese from shelves after founder says Black Lives Matter is a ‘terrorist organization’

Costco will reportedly no longer sell Palmetto Cheese in at least 120 of its stores after Brian Henry, Palmetto Cheese’s founder, said that the Black Lives Matter organization was a “terrorist organization.”

Henry, who is also mayor of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, made the remarks in a since-deleted Aug. 25 Facebook post that prompted many people on social media to call for a boycott of the company.

What are the details?

According to NBC’s “Today,” a Costco store announced the company had removed the cheese items in question from at least 120 stores as prompted by Henry’s remarks.

Henry’s remarks were purported to be in response to the news of a murder of two residents in Georgetown, South Carolina.

The Facebook read, “I am sickened by the senseless killings in Georgetown last night. 2 innocent people murdered. Not 2 thugs or people wanted on multiple warrants. 2 white people defenselessly gunned down by a black man. So why do we stand by and allow BLM to lawlessly destroy great American cities and threaten their citizens on a daily basis … this has gone on too long. Rise up America. This BLM and Antifa movement must be treated like the terror organizations they are.”

The outlet pointed to a release from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, which detailed the incident.

Henry, in the post, apparently referred to 23-year-old Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III, who was arrested the day before Henry’s viral post after reportedly shooting three people and killing two others following a car accident that day.

In a store sign announcement following social media outcry, a Costco franchise wrote, “Over 120 Costco’s [sic] throughout the US are no longer carrying this item.”

The sign also read, “The *(asterisk) on this sign means that these 2 items are discontinued and will not be re-ordered by Costco.”

Several outlets — including “Today” — reportedly reached out to the company to confirm the decision, but the company refused to provide comment.

Henry says ‘sorry’

On Sept. 3, Henry issued an apology during a news conference.

“I am profoundly sorry to those I offended with my post last week,” he said in his remarks. “My comments were hurtful and insensitive. I spent that past 10 days listening and learning. The conversations I’ve had with friends, our staff, the community and faith-based leaders provided me with a deeper understanding of racial inequality and the importance of diversity sensitivity, which is very much needed to heal Pawleys Island, Georgetown and our country.”

In response to Henry’s August remarks, Marvin Neal — the NAACP branch president in Georgetown, South Carolina — called for the Pawleys Island mayor’s resignation.

“When two white people were allegedly killed by a black man in Georgetown, SC, Mayor Brian Henry of the neighboring town of Pawley’s [sic] Island Beach had the opportunity to bring citizens closer together,” the statement read. “He instead chose to use his platform to cause further racial divide and controversy by venting his frustrations on social media.”

In a statement to “Today,” Neal said, “Mayor Henry used the power and privilege afforded to his office to further his personal agenda and spread hateful, racist rhetoric with the potential of inciting violence. These situations must be taken seriously. Racism cannot and will not be tolerated by the citizens of Pawley’s [sic] Island Beach and Georgetown County, SC. Mayor Henry’s actions reflected negatively upon himself and the community in which he serves.”

Black Lives Matter conspiracy theories George Soros Intelwars New York Times

‘A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists’: Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the “Glenn Beck Radio Program” Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros “has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump.”

The Times article followed last week’s bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a “conspiracy theorist” for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

Black Lives Matter Cisgender privilege Intelwars Nuclear family Queer-affirming What we believe

Black Lives Matter removes anti-nuclear family, ‘cisgender privilege’ content from statement of beliefs

The “What We Believe” page on the Black Lives Matter website, which contained content many viewed as radical or unrelated to the fight against police brutality, was deleted from the site and later restored with a significantly scaled-down “About” section, according to the Washington Examiner.

Black Lives Matter, which was founded in 2013 in response to the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Florida, previously had a detailed list of policy stances on the page, some of which drew attention for their controversial nature.

What was on the page?

Some of the content was to be expected, such as statements saying the organization would “work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people” and “We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.

Other content on the page may have been more than many supporters understood they were aligning with when they joined marches and demonstrations.

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable,” one sentence read.

Another line read, “We foster a queer-affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence,” another portion reads.

The edited page eliminates much of the information about restructuring family and gender norms and focuses more heavily on justice and liberation for black people.

What does the public think of BLM?

Support for Black Lives Matter as an organization has dropped over the past three months. In June, 38% of all adults polled by Pew strongly supported the organization; that number dropped to 29% in September. Only 17% of adults strongly opposed the group in June; 30% of adults strongly opposed them in September.

Even among black adults, strong support for Black Lives Matter dropped from 71% in June to 62% in September, although the percentage of black adults who strongly oppose the organization dropped from 6% to 5%.

Black Lives Matter Breonna taylor Intelwars Louisville Louisville metropolitan police department Protests Riots state of emergency

Louisville police declare state of emergency due to fear of riots that could follow Breonna Taylor decision

The Louisville Metropolitan Police Department declared a state of emergency for the city Monday in anticipation of the unrest that could follow a grand jury decision on whether or not to charge the three officers involved in the raid that killed Breonna Taylor in March, NBC News reported.

“In anticipation of Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, I am declaring a state of emergency for the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD),” a memo from Chief Robert J. Schroeder to officers read.

What do we know?

The emergency declaration went into effect immediately Monday, and all officer time-off requests that had not already been approved were canceled. Under the emergency guidelines, officers will work 12-hour shifts.

Windows of federal buildings in the city, including the courthouse, have been boarded up. Hearings scheduled for this week have been changed to video conferences.

Attorney General Cameron is expected to announce this week whether charges will be filed against Sgt. Brett Hankison, Officer Myles Cosgrove, and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly in Taylor’s death. Hankison was fired from the department for “an extreme indifference to the value of human life,” while the other two have been placed on administrative leave.

The city of Louisville paid Taylor’s family $12 million last week to settle a civil lawsuit.

What do we not know?

It is currently unknown whether grand jury deliberations have begun or not, so it is also unknown exactly when an announcement will be made on the fate of the three LMPD officers.

Background

Taylor was a 26-year-old emergency medical technician. She was in her apartment with her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, when police officers in plain clothes burst in after midnight March 13. Officers had a warrant due to her connection with her ex-boyfriend, who is a convicted drug dealer.

Walker, allegedly believing a home invasion was taking place, shot one of the officers in the leg. The officers returned fire, shooting more than 20 bullets into the home, hitting Taylor five times. She died at the scene.

The incident was not widely publicized until about two months after it occurred, after which it gained national media attention. Along with the death of Ahmaud Arbery, which also made national news in May, and later the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the killings of black individuals sparked nationwide protests and riots that have persisted in the four months since.

Black Lives Matter Black males arrested Chuck wright Intelwars Racial comments Shooting at cops Spartanburg county sheriff Spartanburg sheriff wright

South Carolina sheriff criticized over comments about black males in shooting incident, but he is not backing down

A South Carolina sheriff was criticized heavily for his comments made in relation to two black males who were arrested in a shooting incident, but he remained defiant.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said that his deputies would have been in the right if they had shot two black males who were thought to have shot at officers from their car in a Sept. 13 incident.

Tarus Mallory, 23, and Akymzee Holbert, 22, were arrested after the incident and charged with attempted murder. After a review of the evidence, the charges were dismissed and the pair were charged instead with aggravated breach of peace.

Mallory and Holbert are demanding an apology from Wright, who called them idiots.

“I would like him to know, you know, innocent until proven guilty, you know, we didn’t even get, there wasn’t any evidence brought up yet, he was already accusing us,” Holbert said to WHNS-TV.

“So I just wanted to, I just want it to be avoided,” added Holbert, “because it easily could have been avoided, if he had just waited a couple of days.”

Spartanburg City Council member Michael Brown, who is also the president of the Spartanburg NAACP, told WHNS that the sheriff’s comments were inappropriate.

“Just because it come out of the mouth of the sheriff, and in the manner in which he did it, which was completely wrong, it’s unacceptable,” Brown said.

“We live in an age in which things can be said, but you can’t unring a bell, you can’t take back what you said once you have all the facts,” he added. “And clearly the cowboyism, the manner in which the sheriff comes out time and time and time and time again and says the things he says, it’s just unacceptable.”

Here’s the interview with WHNS:


2 men who were accused of shooting at deputies tell their side of the story

The sheriff responded by saying that they could have dragged out the process for months but instead charged them quickly so that they could be with their families and think about what they did.

Wright says that the two men admit to the shooting, but they claim they were not shooting at deputies.

“I guess some people that are very confused thinking that I owe them an apology,” said Wright in an interview with WHNS.

“I didn’t say anything that I need to apologize for, because it’s very irresponsible to shoot out of a car window in a moving car, or in a parked car for that matter,” he added, “out in the public like that just because they wanted to do that.”

Wright said that his comments were partly a response to accusations from black celebrities claiming that black people were being hunted by police.

Here is the interview with Sheriff Wright:

Wright addressed the furor at a city council meeting where members of the community were allowed to voice their concerns.

“It’s not my fault that you misunderstand me, and I don’t owe you an apology for doing my job,” Wright said at the meeting.

“I am going to continue to do my job no matter how loud you get or what you say, and I’m going to do the right thing, and do it for everybody, all the people here,” he added.

Andy ngo Antifa protesters Black Lives Matter Intelwars Portland riots Social Media Twitter Videos viral videos

Black man goes on profane rant against ‘Antifa’ rioters stirring up trouble in Portland: ‘You ain’t from here, motherf***er!’

The moment a black man purporting to be a Portland, Oregon, resident went off on demonstrators has gone viral.

In the video, the black man can be heard shouting at a group of protesters, complaining that they are not from the area and are only there to cause problems.

What are the details?

Journalist Andy Ngo shared the video Sunday evening on Twitter,
captioning it, “You ain’t from here motherf—er! An angry black Portland driver gets out of his car and yells at the antifa rioters. They’re stunned and speechless.”

In the video, an unnamed black man can be seen exiting his vehicle.

He is dressed in a pair of shorts, a T-shirt, and a hat, and begins accusing the group of coming to Portland to stir up trouble.

As he gets out, he says, “I’ve got something to say. Yeah. What do you represent? You don’t represent this motherf***er!”

He turns on those filming and at least one demonstrator in close proximity, saying, “Whose house is there? Whose house is this at the corner right here? You don’t know! Because you ain’t from here, motherf***er! But you come here and got a little motherf***er situation for us, how we’re supposed to be. You ain’t from here, you got a little situation for us, n****.”

“You ain’t from this motherf***er!” he shouts. “You don’t know what we went through, motherf***er!

At the time of this writing, Ngo’s video has been viewed more than 231,000 times.

(Content warning: rough language:)

Anything else?

Journalist Kitty Shackleford
shared a concerning clip to Twitter on Sunday featuring two men in a pickup truck surrounded by demonstrators on a Portland street.

As protesters converge on the truck, members demand its occupants “say Black Lives Matter.”

The camera focuses on the truck’s passenger being confronted by the mob as its members order to him to “say Black Lives Matter, homie!”

“It lets us know that you’re cool!” another person can be heard shouting from the crowd.

It goes south from there.

“Say f***ing Black Lives Matter right now!” another person demands.

A subsequent
clip from the same social media user shares what appears to be the same truck with its passenger window smashed.

The driver of the vehicle can be heard asking, “Who did this? You f***ing p***y! Who did it?”

Leftist militants order passenger in surrounded truck to say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ put up his fist on Portland street

Sitcom actor Anthony Anderson may have been joking when he angrily ordered Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel to chant “Black Lives Matter!” with him louder and louder onstage at the audience-less awards show Sunday night, but leftists in Portland weren’t speaking in jest when they gave the same command to a truck passenger over the weekend.

What are the details?

Journalist Kittie Shackleford posted the disturbing clip to Twitter early Sunday showing two men in a pickup truck surrounded by leftist militants on a street.

The camera focuses on the truck’s passenger being confronted by the mob as its members order to him to “say Black Lives Matter, homie!”

The man — who in any other situation might appear imposing with his bald head and facial hair — meekly raises his fist but apparently isn’t able to say the magic words.

“It lets us know that you’re cool!” another voice shouts from the crowd, offering the man a reason for repeating the phrase.

“You put the fist up, and you’ve got to say Black Lives Matter!” a voice instructs him.

“Say f***ing Black Lives Matter right now!” a threatening shout is heard.

At one point the man apparently insists that he did say the phrase, but one of the leftists isn’t convinced: “I didn’t hear s**t, bro!”

“Loud and proud!” a voice hollers.

Finally the truck passenger apparently satisfies the leftists, and the mob appears to back off: “OK, I appreciate it,” one voice says before the clip ends.

Content warning: Language:

Anything else?

A subsequent clip from Shackleford shows what appears to be the same truck with its passenger window smashed out — and the man who apparently was behind the wheel during the earlier confrontation walks toward the vehicle and discovers the damage.

He is not pleased.

“Who did this?” the man growled. “You f***ing pussy! Who did it?”

It’s worth pointing out that if anyone from the mob surrounding the truck earlier told the driver to put up his fist and say “Black Lives Matter,” he didn’t play along.

Soon the furious man is seen sprinting down a sidewalk, presumably to find the culprit who damaged his truck.

Content warning: Language:

Back where we started, here we go around again

It probably won’t surprise you that this wasn’t the first time militant leftists took to the streets and demanded verbal tolls before letting motorists pass.

A few months ago, one unhinged protester on a Maryland street near Interstate 270 was caught on video screaming a question at passing cars: “Do black lives matter to you?!”

When a woman driver apparently ignored the question, the protester ran after the vehicle and screamed obscenities at the “Karen.” Then other protesters joined in the fray and began assembling near the vehicle: “She ain’t goin’ nowhere …” a male declared as a protester banged on the hood of the SUV.

The clip ends before we get to see how it was resolved.

Anthony anderson Black Lives Matter COVID-19 Emmys Hollywood Intelwars jimmy kimmel watch

‘Louder, Jimmy!’: Sitcom actor leads host Jimmy Kimmel in ‘Black Lives Matter!’ chant from Emmys stage

Actor Anthony Anderson played it angry, Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel played it nervous and demure — and it made for one of the more noteworthy moments of 72nd annual awards show Sunday night.

What are the details?

Anderson — star of the sitcom “Black-ish” — walked onstage to present an award and launched into a monologue that Kimmel jokingly indicated wasn’t what they’d rehearsed. Anderson cut off Kimmel and forged ahead.

“We have a record number of black Emmy nominees this year, which is great,” Anderson said.

Reacting to Kimmel’s silence, Anderson quipped to the host, “This is the part where the white people start to applaud.”

Kimmel obliged — but that wasn’t quite good enough. “And nod,” Anderson added. Kimmel did as ordered.

“These Emmys would have been NBA All-Star Weekend and Wakanda all wrapped into one. This was supposed to be the blackest Emmys ever. Y’all wouldn’t have been able to handle how black it was gonna be,” Anderson said before an empty Staples Center. “But because of COVID we can’t even get in the damn building.”

Kimmel attempted to interject, but Anderson kept going: “These Emmys would have been so black, it would have been like hot-sauce-in-your-purse black. It would have been Howard University Homecoming black. It would have been you-fit-the-description black.”

‘Don’t whitesplain it to me, Jimmy!’

Once again Kimmel tried cutting in — but to no avail: “We would’ve had speeches quoting our great poets like Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, Cardi B. WAP, Jimmy, WAP!” Anderson said in a partially bleeped-out reference to the sexually charged hit song. “But instead of that sexy melanated energy, here I am, alone in a sterilized green room, trying not to sneeze on a llama. What a damn shame.”

When Kimmel corrected Anderson that the animal — which appeared earlier in the broadcast, the Hollywood Reporter said — was an alpaca, Anderson hollered at the host, “Don’t whitesplain it to me, Jimmy! It shoulda been a pit bull!”

Anderson continued, “I’m still rootin’ for everybody black. Because black stories, black performances, and black lives matter. Say it with me, Jimmy.” With that the pair chanted the “black lives matter” phrase that’s been heard countless times this summer amid protests.

‘Louder, Jimmy!’

But Kimmel wasn’t saying it with enough gusto, and Anderson demanded more: “Louder, Jimmy!” And they chanted the phrase again. But still it wasn’t quite good enough.

“Louder, Jimmy!” Anderson hollered at Kimmel. “Say it so that my kids can hear it!”

After a third chant, the finally satisfied Anderson said, “That’s right, and because black lives matter, black people will stay at home tonight to be safe. Which is fine, because guess what? Y’all don’t know how to light us anyway.”

There was no mention during the bit of Kimmel’s resurfaced blackface controversy which led to the late-night TV host taking a leave this summer from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”


Anthony Anderson Was Looking Forward to the Blackest Emmys Ever

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter activist BLM Intelwars Race hoax Race lie Racial misrepresentation Satchuel cole

White BLM activist forced to apologize for pretending to be black after being outed

A social justice activist in Indiana who has allegedly been pretending to be black for years finally admitted that she is actually a white woman. This is the third instance of a white woman pretending to be black this month.

Satchuel Cole was a member of Indy10 Black Lives Matter and the Indy SURJ, an Indianapolis-based chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice, a “national network of groups and individuals working to undermine white supremacy and to work for racial justice.”

On Wednesday, Cole revealed that she had been lying about her race and offered an apology on a Facebook post.

“Friends, I need to take accountability for my actions and the harm that I have done,” Cole wrote. “My deception and lies have hurt those I care most about. I have taken up space as a Black person while knowing I am white. I have used Blackness when it was not mine to use. I have asked for support and energy as a Black person.”

“I have caused harm to the city, friends and the work that I held so dear,” Cole continued. “I will do the work to take responsibility for my actions and try to reduce the harm that I have already caused.”

“If there are ways to repair the harm, I will do the work that is required to do so,” she wrote. “I will continue to seek the help necessary to heal myself. I am sorry for the harm I have caused. I am sorry for the hurt and betrayal. I will do what I can to show that I want to be a better person.”

Cole was forced to confess that she had committed racial fraud after she was exposed in an article titled “Shocking Details Emerge on Indy Activist Who Faked Life as a Black Woman” published on BlackIndyLIVE.

Cole allegedly told multiple people that she was from a biracial family and that her father is black. BlackIndyLive reported that Cole’s parents “indicated their races as white on legal documents.”

The Indy10 Black Lives Matter group issued a statement on the situation.

“Satchuel Cole is not a member of Indy10 Black Lives Matter and has not been a part of any community initiatives for several months,” the statement on Facebook said. “We found out about her deceit at the same time that most people did, in the last week.”

In 2018, Cole founded the No Questions Asked Food Pantry, a grassroots food pantry that partnered with Indy10 Black Lives Matter, Indy Pride, Queering Indy, and Indy Feminists.

In May, the Central Indiana Community Foundation awarded more than $1 million in responsive grants to several Marion County’s non-profit organizations during the coronavirus pandemic. Cole’s No Questions Asked Food Pantry received $35,000 in funding from the CICF, according to the IndyStar.

“[W]e are disappointed that we have another instance of a white woman claiming to be a Black woman and it continues to perpetuate issues that we see in the community and it creates divisiveness,” Pamela Ross, vice president of opportunity, equity and inclusion at CICF, told the IndyStar.

“This situation has created a different level of conversation about telling the truth,” Ross said. “We are looking at leaders and at how many leaders of color actually are running these organizations. That does matter, but it does not matter in an application, it matters in the conversation because we want to influence more leaders of color.”

Cole was the vice president of the now-defunct Deconstructing Oppression Now Through Solidarity Liberation Equity Empowerment & Perseverance.

Cole was the spokesperson for the family of Aaron Bailey, a 45-year-old who was shot and killed by two Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers following a traffic stop in June 2017.

Cole, who is also an active member of the LGBTQ+ community, was a grand marshal of this year’s Indy Pride Parade.

According to a civil court docket, Cole was born “Jennifer Lynn Benton” and identified as a white female on paper before 2010. She changed her name in Hamilton Circuit Court to “Satchuel Paigelyn Cole,” a reference to legendary Negro League pitcher Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige and Benton’s close friend, Chantelle-Owens-Cole.

Crystal Turner, who knew Cole, said she felt betrayed by her racial misrepresentation.

“She said it was to discuss BLM and the first thing I asked was ‘Why is this Black Lives Matter meeting being ran by a white woman?’ But she explained her lie of a story and she had enough other people betrayed that they vouched for her,” Turner said. “And she would constantly acknowledge she was able to pass for white … and how she had to use that to help others.”

“So I’m sure a lot of people, like I did, just thought she was really aware of her privilege as a biracial Black woman, not that she was a white woman just pretending for years,” Turner said of Cole.

This is the latest case of white women pretending to be black. Jessica Krug, a white associate professor at George Washington University, revealed earlier this month that she was pretending to be a black woman.

CV Vitolo-Haddad, a white University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate student, resigned this week from a teaching assistant position after she was caught pretending to be a black person.

Alicia garza Black futures lab Black Lives Matter Black lives matter marxists BLM Blm marxists China Chinese progressive association Intelwars

Black Lives Matter co-founder’s venture funded by pro-communist China group: report

A new project from a Black Lives Matter co-founder is funded by an organization that is pro-communist and supports China’s communist government, according to a new investigation by the Heritage Foundation. Alicia Garza, who is the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter organization, started a new venture called the Black Futures Lab.

“The Black Futures Lab transforms Black communities into constituencies that change the way power operates — locally, statewide and nationally,” the Black Futures Lab’s website states. The group has a mission to “educate elected officials on this new legislative agenda, and challenges policymakers to take up positions beneficial to Black communities.”

When you click on the donation page of the Black Futures Lab website, the page says: “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”

The Chinese Progressive Association was founded in 1972, and claims it “educates, organizes and empowers the low income and working class immigrant Chinese community in San Francisco to build collective power with other oppressed communities to demand better living and working conditions and justice for all people.”

There is also another CPA chapter in Boston that was established in 1977.

The Heritage Foundation claims that from CPA’s start, “it has been a promoter of the People’s Republic of China.” The Heritage Foundation report cites “an authoritative 2009 Stanford University paper” that alleges the Chinese Progressive Association “worked with other pro-PRC groups within the U.S. and San Francisco Bay Area … Support for the PRC was based on the inspiration the members drew from what they saw as a successful grassroots model that presented a viable alternative to Western capitalism.”

The Chinese Progressive Association was commended for participating in anti-police brutality protests this summer by China Daily, China’s state-owned English-language news site that is run by the Publicity Department of the Chinese Communist Party.

CPA held a rally last September in Boston, where demonstrators raised the People’s Republic of China flag in City Hall Plaza to commemorate the anniversary of the communist takeover.

CPA co-founder Lydia Lowe co-wrote an essay titled, “The Role of Asian American and Pacific Islander Movements: Race, Nationality Oppression and Revolutionary Strategy” for Leftroots, a self-described “national organization of Leftists engaged in mass organizing in the United States committed to developing the individual and collective skills necessary to formulate, evaluate and carry out strategy to build twenty-first century socialism.”

“What is the connection between the history of people of color in the U.S. and their role in the struggle for 21st century socialism? Exploitation, oppression, and theft from communities of color, rooted in the history of colonialism and imperialism, was central to the development of the U.S. economy and society; today’s inequality and super-exploitation is the result of a western legacy of racial capitalism,” the essay says.

“The issue of race or nationality oppression plays an exceptional role in U.S. society and its resolution is critical to achieving a fundamentally different one,” the essay adds. “Unifying working class struggles with the movements of peoples of color is critical to achieving a fundamentally different society.”

The Black Futures Lab nor the Chinese Progressive Association responded to requests for comment about the partnership from Fox News.

Garza’s fellow Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, has admitted that the organization’s leaders are “trained Marxists.” In a 2015 interview, Cullors admitted that BLM founders subscribe to Karl Marx’s ideology.

“Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” Cullors said. “We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”

Earlier this week, former NFL star Herschel Walker denounced BLM and asked, “Are you supporting the group that says they are trained Marxists? Because they’re making a lot of money, and I like to know.”

“I’m challenging every owner in the NFL, every owner of major league sports, every owner of stadiums, every commissioner, every leader in Washington, every church,” Walker said. “I’m challenging every professional player: Is this who you’re supporting? Because a trained Marxist tells you that they’re anti-government, they’re anti-American, they’re anti-Christian, they’re anti-everything.”

On BlazeTV, Glenn Beck explained how public schools have pushed progressive agendas and Marxism with the help of BLM. Beck speaks to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

Animation series something happened in our town Black Lives Matter Grove elementary school assignment Indoctrination in public schools Intelwars Leftist agenda Racism

Seattle elementary school lesson reportedly encourages children to see police officers as racist

A Seattle-area school reportedly encouraged young children to complete a school assignment about a police officer shooting a black male that had what many called an anti-police bent.

When reached for comment, a school official told KTTH-FM‘s Jason Rantz that the assignment was a “non-story.”

What are the details?

According to Rantz, some Seattle-area elementary school students received a head-scratching homework assignment sharing a decidedly anti-police sentiment.

Students at Grove Elementary were reportedly asked to watch a video that was said to teach kids “that racist police routinely target innocent black Americans.”

Rantz writes, “Among the lessons being promoted, either in the virtual classroom or via third-party resources to parents, students as young as 7-years-old are taught that racist police routinely target innocent Black Americans but don’t suffer consequences because police cover for each other.”

The schools pushed a video titled, “Animation Series: Something Happened in Our Town,” which apparently tells the story of a police officer who shot a black male, told from the perspective of a young white child and a young black child.

“When the white girl asks why police shot the man, she’s told by her sister, ‘The cops shot him because he was black.’ The girl’s mom says it was a mistake to shoot the man, noting that, ‘It was a mistake that is part of a pattern’ where white people are treated well, but not black people,” Rantz added.

Students were required to watch the video with their parents, and a week later, the students were set to discuss the video in a virtual classroom setting.

When the black boy, however, discusses the shooting with his parents, the story is a little different.

“The boy’s father notes that the officer ‘won’t go to jail,'” Rantz writes. “The boy’s brother says, ‘Cops stick up for each other. And they don’t like black men.'”

A ‘non-story’

Jodi Runyon, Grove Elementary’s director of Communications, Engagement, and Outreach, told Rantz that the video “was successfully addressed at the school level” and refused to provide further comment on the matter.

Rantz persisted, and pushed Runyon for more information. Runyon reportedly responded by calling the issue a “non-story.”

Runyon added that the video was set as “an optional resource to build understanding in challenging times.”

She also added that the school yanked the video and the assignment after two parents complained.

There was no further discussion, she insisted, because “the teacher addressed the parent’s concerns appropriately.”

Black americans protesting Black Lives Matter Intelwars Videos viral videos

Black Americans band together and demonstrate against BLM — and what they say could change the narrative

A viral video is making the rounds across the internet, featuring black anti-Black Lives Matter protesters in various stages of discussion about the movement, what it means to be black in America, and what “black lives matter” really means as a concept.

At the time of this reporting, the video — published on the Daily Wire’s
Facebook page — has been shared more than 4,000 times.

What are the details?

The video begins with one man passionately speaking out against the Black Lives Matter movement.

Here are some of his key quotes:

  • “They’re full of hate. Nobody listen to them. Don’t listen to them. Don’t try to understand them. Why? They are full of hate. You don’t need it. America don’t need it.”
  • “In a black neighborhood, black-on-black crime is real. … White people aren’t doing anything to them.”
  • “White people voted Barack Obama in for eight years. … Everything that the blacks could be crying about should have did it on his watch. And they didn’t.”
  • “I’m black, 52, I’m not oppressed. Ain’t nobody oppressing me. America’s more free than it’s ever been.”
  • “Some little young, 19-year-old black person. ‘They been through this.’ They ain’t been through nothing. They’re creating it! They’re creating a problem that does not exist like they’re talking about!”
  • “They don’t know who they’re mad at. Remember, this started with George Floyd. It went from George Floyd to now, it became the white people. Then it went from the white people, now it’s the whole system of America. They don’t know what they’re mad at. They don’t know what they’re bothered by. … Don’t get caught up in the hype. It’s all wrong.”
  • “The only people that’s oppressed in this world is people that embrace being oppressed.”
  • “If they are so bothered, why don’t they leave and go to Africa or to another country? If you’re that bothered with America, pack your stuff, hold a crusade, because I think some of us will put money up and help you leave.”

The video cuts to another man, who speaks out about his support of the police and what he believes “black lives matter” really means.

Here are some of his key quotes:

  • “I gotta be out here supporting the police. The people that we need. The people that stand in the gap for us when it comes to crime, when it comes to delinquency. … They’re being vilified across the board. It’s unacceptable.”
  • “They think it’s gonna be some type of utopia without the police. It makes no sense. … We all know when there’s a lack of police presence, crime goes up. Lawlessness goes up. Civil unrest goes up. … To abolish the police is an asinine concept that’s gonna do nothing but bring about the destruction of America.”
  • “The police are here for our benefit, not for our detriment.”
  • “Black Lives Matter has been hijacked by Antifa, by … first of all, it’s not even a legitimate cause. If we’re going to talk about Black Lives Matter, let’s talk about the abortion rate. The black abortion rate. Talking about more black babies being killed in New York City than birthed. … Black-on-black crime, [in] all these inner cities. … If we wanna really talk about black lives mattering, then we gotta be proactive in our approach to stop these black lives from being murdered and killed on the street. Black Lives Matter doesn’t really stand for black lives matter — it’s all about the narrative, and that’s all they’re trying to push.”

Black Lives Matter activist berates CVS manager for calling cops on men caught shoplifting, but it backfires big time

A woman filmed herself berating a CVS manager because he called the police on two men who were allegedly caught shoplifting. However, her attempt to shame the manager did not go as she planned, and it completely blew up in her face.

On Thursday, the Twitter account @CharinDC uploaded a video of her scolding a manager of a Washington, D.C., CVS store. The Twitter account has a bio supporting the Movement for Black Lives, or M4BL, organization and calls for police to be abolished. The account, which reportedly belongs to Charity Sade, claims she is an abolitionist, activist, writer, and comedian. She also included her pronouns in the bio. Her alleged website says, “coming soon,” and has a background that states: “Black Lives Matter.”

The CVS manager called the police when two men allegedly attempted to steal merchandise from the pharmacy. While the police officers were questioning the suspects outside, Sade begins recording, and within 30 seconds she questions the cop. The woman then demands the police officer’s badge number.

Sade then wrote a Twitter thread about the encounter with the hashtags: #BLM, #BlackLivesMatter, and #PeopleOverProperty.

“One officer told one of the men that their other person’s freedom was dependent on him being quiet. This is violent,” Sade wrote. “People know what happens when the police are called on Black folx! They value property over people.”

In typical cancel culture fashion, she included a photo of the CVS manager and shared the police officer’s badge number.

The woman then pursued the CVS manager into the store to confront him.

“I live in the neighborhood, I come to this CVS very often,” Sade says in an upward inflection. “May I ask why you called the police on those two men?”

“CVS policy dictates that if there’s shoplifters that exit the store with merchandise unpaid for, we should get the police involved,” he responded. “So I actually did not elect to press charges.”

“I said, ‘Hey look I just want them to know that they can’t come in anymore because they shoplifted,'” the manager calmly explained.

The woman argued that the stolen merchandise didn’t belong to the manager and that he was endangering the lives of the two alleged shoplifters.

“It’s not your merchandise. You decided to call the police on two black people that stole … allegedly took something from the store because you’re willing to uphold the policy and they could’ve lost their lives,” the wokescold told the manager.

The manager informed the woman that he follows the company’s policies and not her policies.

She asks, “So you’re willing to risk someone’s life for $30,000 a year?”

The agitated woman then asks for the man’s name and he responds, “My name is ‘store manager.'” She then asks a CVS employee what his name is, but she doesn’t respond.

“No one’s going to tell you my name when you’re in here videotaping us so that you can try and elicit some sort of violence, it’s not going to happen,” the manager informs the woman.

“Elicit violence against you? You just elicited violence against two black men by calling the police on them,” the woman replies.

The manager responds, “No, they peacefully got to walk away and one of them had a warrant and could have been arrested but the cops still let him go.”

“Listen to yourself, you work with black folks. You just remember that,” the woman says.

The manager gets the last word in the quarrel by saying his black coworkers “love me.”

The woman’s attempt to cancel the CVS manager completely backfired. After numerous people on Twitter started informing Sade that she was indeed the bad person in this video and not the CVS manager, she changed her Twitter handle from @CharitySade to @CharinDC in an attempt to hide her identity. Sade has since made her account private and deleted her Instagram account.

Before Sade nuked her own Twitter account, TheBlaze’s Jessica Fletcher O’Donnell captured the now viral video.

Does Sade Charity strike you as a hilarious comedian?

Herschel Walker shreds BLM, calls out NFL owners, players who support ‘trained Marxists’: BLM is ‘anti-government, anti-American, anti-Christian’

In a now-viral video, former NFL star Herschel Walker blasted the Black Lives Matter movement as “anti-government, anti-American, anti-Christian,” and “anti-everything.”

Walker, in his heated remarks, also challenged NFL leaders to speak up about whether they will support what he says is a Marxist movement.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said during a 2105 interview that she and a co-founder were “trained Marxists.” The interview recently resurfaced online and has caused some controversy.

What are the details?

In the video, Walker demanded that Black Lives Matters demonstrators who support the ideology come out and tell the American people “this is exactly who you stand for” in supporting Black Lives Matter.

Walker shared the video on Wednesday, captioning it, “I have finally WOKE UP…I am shaking you America! As Maya said, when someone tells you who they are, believe them.”

In the video, Walker said, “First I want to apologize to the American people, because I was blind, but now I can see. I was deaf, but now I can hear. The other day, I was listening to one of the founders of Black Lives Matter, and I heard her say that they are ‘trained Marxists.'”

During the 2015 interview, Cullors outright admitted, “Myself and [co-founder] Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”

The Heisman Trophy winner continued his remarks, insisting that he was calling on all people and organizations — including the NFL and its players — to speak up about whether they will support an organization whose leaders referred to themselves as “trained Marxists.”

“I’m challenging every owner in the NFL, every owner of major league sports, every owner of stadiums, every commissioner, every leader in Washington, every church,” he said. “I’m challenging every professional player: Is this who you’re supporting? Because a trained Marxist tells you that they’re anti-government, they’re anti-American, they’re anti-Christian, they’re anti-everything.”

He continued, “I see all these signs, I see all these logos, I see all these commercials, I see all this stuff, and it’s OK, ’cause we’re in America. You can support who you want and do what you want, but I need to know, and the American people need to know, that when you talk about supporting BLM — are you supporting the group that says they are trained Marxists? Because they’re making a lot of money, and I like to know.”

At the time of this reporting, the video has been viewed more than 131,000 times and liked 17,000 times.

Ambush of police Ambush of troopers in phoenix Anti-cop attack Anti-police shooting Black Lives Matter Intelwars phoenix arizona Phoenix trooper ambush

Car pulls up to troopers and teen passenger shoots at them in Phoenix ambush; one arrested, police on manhunt for driver

Two Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers were fired upon in an apparent ambush attempt in Phoenix, and police are on a manhunt for the driver after apprehending the alleged teen shooter.

DPS officials say the two troopers were uniformed but sitting in an unmarked car when another car pulled up to them and honked the horn. A teenager that was sitting in the passenger seat exited the vehicle and fired at the troopers with an assault rifle.

The troopers were able to exit their vehicle and return fire at the suspects.

The driver of the car then sped away without the shooter, who was taken into custody. The troopers were uninjured in the incident, and the rifle was recovered.

The suspect in custody was a 17-year-old Hispanic male.

Here’s the media briefing about the incident:


Authorities search for driver in west Phoenix shooting at troopers

www.youtube.com

The two troopers were a part of the public affairs unit and were supporting a separate operation when they were attacked.

Helicopter footage from KSAZ-TV showed a large police response to the incident.

Police are seeking help from the public to identify the driver of a silver Infiniti G37 from between 2008 and 2013 with a temporary license plate and custom wheels.

The incident bears jarring resemblance to the ambush on officers in Compton, California, where someone walked up to a police vehicle and shot two officers in the head. Both of the officers were hospitalized with severe injuries.

Critics of the Black Lives Matter movement used the insidious attack to condemn some of the extreme rhetoric used by those demanding more accountability from police departments.

Here’s a local news report about the incident:

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter riots Crime Franklin and marshall college Intelwars Kathryn patterson Lancaster riots

Dad blasts ‘obscene’ $1 million bail set by judge for sorority member daughter charged with BLM rioting, arson

A Franklin & Marshall College Kappa Delta sorority sister is
one of nine people charged with crimes connected to the riots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, last weekend. The girl’s father on Tuesday blasted a judge’s decision to set her bail at $1 million as “obscene” and unconstitutional.

Kathryn Patterson, 20, faces
felony and misdemeanor charges including arson, vandalism, riot, and disorderly conduct after her arrest early Monday. She was allegedly a participant in the protests over the fatal police shooting of Ricardo Munoz, who according to bodycam footage chased a police officer with a knife in a threatening manner.

Patterson is a Black Lives Matter supporter, posting on Facebook “BLM, all day every day” and commenting, “my left fist, to symbolize black power.”

The girl’s father, Chip Patterson of Mercersburg, called the $1 million bail set by the district judge “obscene.”

“Everything that I know so far, which is not a lot, indicates that Kat is not guilty of those charges. But then again, we’ll have to wait and see,” he
told the Associated Press.

“I cannot tell you how long this night has been,” he said. “I think regardless of what these people did or didn’t do, the bail amount is just outrageous and clearly against the Eighth Amendment.” The Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits “excessive bail.”

Patterson’s defenders say she and her friend Taylor Enterline, another individual who was arrested by police, were doing nothing more than acting as “medics” before they were arrested. The social justice advocacy group Lancaster Stands Up characterized the “absurdly high bail amounts” as “a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability.”

A GoFundMe page set up for Patterson has received support from the Franklin & Marshall College chapter of Delta Kappa, members of the Black Student Union, and as reported by the Washington Free Beacon’s Brent Scher, even the college president Barbara Altmann thanked students for creating the GoFundMe, posting on Instagram that “many of us in our community will be contributing.”

“Kat was providing medical attention to injured demonstrators and has now been wrongfully accused of crimes she could not possibly commit,” the page states. “We as members of the Black Student Union and Kappa Delta Sorority, have created this fund to raise money to support Kat and her family.”

The fundraiser has so far raise just over $54,000 toward its goal of $60,000.

An update to the page also urges donors to support the GoFundMe pages for “activists and friends” Enterline and Alexa Wise, a “Black Trans Activist” who was also arrested on charges of arson, riot, and vandalism.

Alex villanueva Black Lives Matter Intelwars LeBron James Los Angeles Police

LA County sheriff fires back at anti-police activists who said they hoped injured deputies died

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has a stern message for the anti-police activists who wished for the deaths of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies who were ambushed while sitting in their patrol vehicle over the weekend.

What’s the background?

As TheBlaze reported, shortly after the deputies were ambushed Saturday night, alleged Black Lives Matter activists stormed the hospital where the deputies were taken for emergency surgery.

Witnesses said they saw the protesters attempt to block hospital entrances and exists. Meanwhile, numerous social media videos showed the anti-police activists telling law enforcement officers outside the hospital that they hoped the injured officers would die; others even threatened that they would kill every police officer “one by one.”

What did Villanueva say?

During an interview Tuesday on Fox News, Villanueva said those activists who shouted “we hope they die,” referring to the injured officers, are “almost worthy of ISIS.”

“It’s just a new low for hatred that I don’t think anyone in this nation has ever seen before, and it’s something almost worthy of ISIS,” Villanueva said.

“We just don’t expect it on our own shores,” he continued. “We have been here fighting to save people’s lives across the county — it doesn’t matter who you are. It is not something we are going to expect or tolerate.”

Later in the interview, Villanueva also challenged Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, whom Villanueva has called on to match the reward money for Saturday’s crime.

On Monday, Villanueva said publicly:

This challenge is to LeBron James. I want you to match that and double that reward. I know you care about law enforcement. You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African American community. And I appreciated that. But likewise, we need to appreciate that respect for life goes across professions, across races, creeds, and I’d like to see LeBron James step up to the plate and double that.

During his interview on Fox News, Villanueva said James has not yet responded to him — but said the NBA superstar needs “to take some ownership of exactly what he said in terms of propagating the idea that people are being hunted everywhere because of the color of their skin.”

James said in May, in response to uproar over the death of Ahmaud Arbery, that black people “literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!”

Villanueva said, “I think that is just flat out not the case.”

“I think we need to hold those accountable for breaking the law, be it law enforcement when we are crossing the line,” Villanueva added. “But then we have to acknowledge the bigger problem of violence overall and this ambush, cowardly ambush, of the two deputies just doing their own job, doing their business there in Compton, really illustrates that. That is the problem we need to address.”

Bail for rioters Black Lives Matter Intelwars Lancaster Leftists Pennsylvania police shooting Rioting watch

Leftists charged in Lancaster rioting learn — to the tune of $1 million bail each — their antics don’t fly in Pennsylvania Dutch Country

A Pennsylvania judge threw ye olde book at nine fine people charged in connection to riots in Lancaster over the weekend — and alas none of them could scare up the cash to post bail, which was set for each at $1 million, the New York Post reported.

Where, oh, where is Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler — and the get-out-of-jail-with-no-bail policy that rioters in his city love — when you need him?

What are the details?

Riots broke out Sunday over the fatal shooting of a knife-wielding man by police. It was the usual M.O. A mob marched to the police station and threw glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs filled with liquid, and plastic road barricades at cops, police told the Post.

But police managed to arrest over a dozen people around 3 a.m. Monday, the paper said.

Twelve adults — Jamal Shariff Newman, 24; Barry Jones, 30; Frank Gaston, 43; Yoshua Dwayne Montague, 23; Matthew Modderman, 31; Talia Gessner, 18; Kathryn Patterson, 20; Taylor Enterline, 20; T-Jay Fry, 28; Dylan Davis, 28; Lee Alexander Wise, 29; Jessica Marie Lopez, 32 — face felony and misdemeanor charges, including arson, riot, institutional vandalism, and criminal conspiracy, the Post said, adding that Montague also faces a charge of illegal possession of a firearm.

A 16-year-old male also was arrested on charges of riot, disorderly conduct, possession of instruments of crime, possession of a small amount of marijuana, propulsion of missiles onto a roadway, and institutional vandalism, the paper added.

Ouch!

And with that, Magisterial District Judge Bruce A. Roth set bail for nine of the defendants — Newman, Jones, Montague, Modderman, Gessner, Patterson, Enterline, Fry, and Davis — at $1 million each, the Post said, adding that court records show all of them were unable to post the cash.

They’re being held at the Lancaster County Prison, the paper said, adding that bail information for Lopez wasn’t available and Wise’s bail was set at $100,000, which also was a tad too rich for his blood. Gaston was on probation and a detainer would be lodged against him, police said, the Post reported.

‘Politically motivated attack’

Social justice advocacy group Lancaster Stands Up claimed Patterson and Enterline were working as “medics” when they were arrested, the Post said.

“The absurdly high bail amounts indicate that what we’re seeing is not a measured pursuit of justice, but a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability,”
the group tweeted, according to the paper.

More from the Post:

Lancaster Stands Up then called on a number of elected officials, including Lancaster Mayor Danene Sorace and Gov. Tom Wolf, “to step in and defend Taylor, Kathryn and other peaceful protestors against the politically motivated actions of local law enforcement, prosecutors and judges.”

Jumping the gun again?

Turns out that just after the shooting, social media posts claimed police killed an unarmed, autistic teenager. But bodycam video of the shooting was quickly released, and officials revealed the deceased was a 27-year-old man who chased the officer with a knife.

But it seemed — as with other riots this summer — the initial rumors were just too good to pass up for rioters.

(Content warning: Language):

Lancaster police said the local district attorney is now investigating the incident to determine whether lethal force was legally justifiable in the case.

The man killed by police was later identified as Ricardo Munoz, the Associated Press reported. He was set to go to trial in October on charges he slashed four people last year, the Post added.

Black Lives Matter Blue Lives Matter Brady williams Football players suspended Intelwars Jarad bentley Little miami high school suspension Morrow ohio football players thin blue line Thin red line

High school indefinitely suspends football players for carrying Thin Blue, Red Line flags in 9/11 tribute

At least two Ohio high school football players have been suspended for carrying flags honoring police and fallen firefighters ahead of a recent game.

What are the details?

According to WKRC-TV, Little Miami High School in Morrow, Ohio, opted to suspend Brady Williams and Jarad Bentley after they expressed their support for first responders before a Sept. 11 football game.

Brady, a senior cornerback whose father is a police officer, said that he was not trying to make a political statement at all in carrying the Thin Blue Line flag.

“I was just doing it to honor the people that lost their lives 19 years ago,” he said.

Jarad — whose father is a firefighter — carried the Thin Red Line flag and told WKRC that he was thinking about his father at the time.

“I was all for it,” he said. “Because my dad is a firefighter, and if it had been him killed on 9/11, I would have wanted someone to do it for him.”

The station reports that Brady and Jarad requested permission from the school ahead of time, but were reportedly denied.

Brady said that he felt it was more important to honor the memories of first responders on 9/11 than it was to worry about suffering any possible consequences.

“Listen, I don’t care what my consequences are,” he told the station. “So long as my message gets across, I’ll be happy.”

The two discovered their fate on Monday: an indefinite suspension.

You can watch a video report on the incident here.

Divisive political symbols

Superintendent Gregory Power told the station that he was sticking firmly to the decision.

“We can’t have students who decide to do something anyway after they’ve been told that they shouldn’t be doing it,” Power said, arguing that the apparently divisive flags were symbols of political controversy.

“We did not want to place ourselves in a circumstance where another family might want a different flag to come out of the tunnel, one that may be [one that] many other families may not agree with from a political perspective,” Power reasoned.

In a generic statement, the district added, “Little Miami Local Schools is saddened to see this story take such a negative turn. While we understand these students’ desire show their support of our first responders, they did not obtain permission from district officials. Administrators must act when students break the rules.”

“Little Miami always has — and always will — support our first responders, our veterans, and all who sacrifice to maintain our freedoms,” the statement promised.

black community Black Lives Matter Intelwars Nevada peaceful protests President Donald Trump Protests Social Media Twitter viral videos

Trump supporter goes viral for protest remarks: ‘He’s done more for the black community’ than ‘any other president’

Video of a black Trump supporter singing the president’s praises has gone viral.

The footage, taken at a Nevada campaign stop, shows the man lauding President Donald Trump for his work with the black community, and for what he’s doing for small businesses across the country.

Team Trump shared the video across its social networking platforms, where it went viral.

What are the details of the video?

The video was captioned, “Supporter at #Nevada Peaceful Protest: ‘I support the president because he’s done more for the black community — all Americans really — than any other president in my lifetime.'”

The supporter added, “I’m happy with what he’s doing for businesses, small businesses, [and trying to] get us reopened.”

The video, at the time of this writing, has been liked more than 31,000 times.

‘The Democrats’ playbook is no black can leave the plantation’

Just last week, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell — a decades-long Democratic voter — spoke out against remarks made by “The View’s” Sunny Hostin in which she said that black conservative voters were Republican Party “props.”

“[Y]ou hear all of this coming from the Trump campaign about how black people have nothing to lose and they are gonna overwhelmingly vote for Trump, and you had all the black people props all over the RNC talking about all the stuff they’ve done for the black community,” Hostin said about the Republican National Convention. “You heard [former White House press secretary] Sarah Sanders yesterday talking about all the things that have been done for the black community by the Trump administration.”

Terrell snapped back at Hostin, telling Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he was no prop.

“See, the Democrats’ playbook is no black can leave the plantation,” he said. “We have to remain, if not, we will be called names. I’ve been called names recently, but here’s the point: I want to speak directly to Sunny from ‘The View.’ I have news for you, Sunny. Tim Scott is not a prop. Alice Johnson is not a prop. And the wife of David Dorn is not a prop.”

“I have 30 years invested with the left side, I know what the left side has done,” he insisted. “I freely decided to vote Republican. No pay, it’s because I love this country. … When you make this argument, as a lawyer, you should be ashamed of yourself to call black Republicans a ‘prop.’ That is a personal attack.”

‘You get paid to shape a liberal narrative’

In July, black Democratic Trump supporter Vernon Jones lit into MSNBC host Craig Melvin for suggesting that he was being paid by the Trump re-election campaign.

“Let me be clear,” Jones told Melvin at the time. “You get paid to shape a liberal narrative. You get paid to attack this president. I don’t get a dime from this president. I don’t get a dime from the campaign. Everything I’ve done has been me and based on my principles.”

He continued, “It’s what I can do for my country, and you need to accept that many other African Americans and others support this president because of his policies. And to insult me to say, ‘Am I getting paid?’ — that is disgraceful, that is horrible, and that’s representative of MSNBC and their narrative to keep blacks silent who happen to support this president.”

Baker mayfield Baker mayfield kneeling Black Lives Matter Cleveland browns Did baker mayfield kneel Intelwars National anthem kneeling National Anthem Protest

Browns QB Baker Mayfield changes his mind on kneeling during national anthem, says it would create more ‘division’

Baker Mayfield, the NFL quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, completely flip-flopped on whether he would join the national anthem kneeling protest after issuing a defiant message to angry fans.

Mayfield had previously said that he would kneel alongside some of his teammates and he didn’t care if it angered the fans.

“You know, right is right and wrong is wrong,” he said at the time. “It’s a human rights issue. It’s been going on for a long time and I believe in that.”

On Saturday, Mayfield released a statement saying that he had changed his mind after watching how other teams handled the controversy in the first game of the NFL season.

“Also after reading many letters and messages over the past weeks… I have been showed that a gesture such as kneeling will only create more division or discussion about the gesture, rather than be a solution towards our country’s problems at hand. With that being said, I am choosing to stand for both anthems to show respect, love, and unity to everybody involved,” Mayfield said.

“I will respect all of my teammates no matter their decision. We have had meaningful discussions on what true change looks like, and that change takes all of us being together,” he added.

“I am posting this now so it is not a discussion on game day. And so the discussion can continue to be about how to better our country, instead of divide us,” Mayfield concluded. “Our team is ready to fight for our goals both on and off the field.”

Mayfield did stand for the national anthem Sunday before the game against the Baltimore Ravens, although some fans were upset that he was caught on the live broadcast laughing and talking during the presentation.

The Browns suffered a 38-6 blowout loss in their season opener.

Candace Owens shreds ‘pea-brained’ LeBron James, BLM for ambush on LA sheriffs: ‘The racist, anti-police, black lives matter LIE is to blame’

Conservative commentator Candace Owens tore into NBA player LeBron James for his support of the Black Lives Matter movement’s rhetoric following the
horrific ambush on two deputies in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.

What’s a very brief history here?

Two sheriff’s deputies were shot in an unprovoked attack as they sat in a police cruiser on a Los Angeles street, according to authorities.

Both were “severely wounded” during the incident, and taken to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery.

As they arrived, Black Lives Matter activists reportedly converged on the facility, blocking entrances, demanding the officers be
left to die from their grievous injuries.

Several protesters were arrested during the fracas.

What are the details?

Referring to the weekend’s attack on the sheriffs, Owens on Sunday said that James — who once insisted that black men are “literally hunted” every time they leave their homes — is complicit in antagonizing anti-cop activists.

Owens — author of “Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democratic Plantation” — asked, “Why does this happen? Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like @KingJames tell young black men that they are ‘literally being hunted.’ This is the natural result of such hyperbolic, dishonest rhetoric.”

“The racist, anti-police, black lives matter LIE is to blame,” she insisted.

The conservative commentator later
wrote, “Why else does this happen? Because when pea-brained athletes put the name of an alleged RAPIST on their helmets and jerseys, criminals begin believing they are acting as heroes.”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THE COMPLICIT MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS, ATHLETES, AND ENTERTAINERS ARE TO BLAME,” she added.

What else?

Later on Sunday, Owens spoke to Mark Levin during an appearance on Fox’s “Life, Liberty, & Levin,” where she said James’s apparent outrage over white privilege and racism was overblown and misplaced.

“He’s got a white gardener, a white chef, all various white people that work for him, white driver,” she said. “So if that’s racism, LeBron, please, please share some of that with the rest of us.”

The conservative also said that many celebrities privately correspond with her, and allegedly admit to being closeted conservatives who live in fear of losing their affluent positions in Hollywood.

“If I opened my inbox and showed you the amount of celebrities that have written to me privately, that silent majority that we’re always talking about, they’ve written to me and said, ‘I’m finally starting to see the truth. I can’t stand being in Hollywood. I’m not allowed to use my voice to say what I actually believe,” Owens told Levin.

She added, “These are the same celebrities that are actually posting the black squares on Instagram and saying ‘We must care about black lives.’ And they’re saying they’re doing it basically under duress because if they don’t, they’ll lose their entire careers.”

Owens also promised that there is a cultural and political awakening taking place across the U.S. for the better.

“There is something shaking and something happening in this country, and more and more people are awake and alive to what is really at risk, which is really the values and the principles that this country was built upon,” she insisted.
