This is just unbelievable. A prominent Black Lives Matter activist, Maya Echols, literally threatened that cities will be “on fire” if former officer Derek Chauvin who is on trial for killing George Floyd as a Minneapolis police officer is not convicted.
Forget any evidence, forget the fact that Floyd had triple the lethal dose of fentanyl and his blood plus meth plus he had COVID, and forget the fact that the knee on the neck didn’t block his airway at all in fact it is in the training video for police officers. She doesn’t give a damn. She wants riots to happen if he doesn’t get convicted.
The autopsy found a mixture of methamphetamine and fentanyl in Floyd’s bloodstream. On top of that, he had heart problems, and he was suffering from COVID.
So how bad is fentanyl?
Dr. Paul Christo of Johns Hopkins University says he uses fentanyl as a really powerful anesthetic during surgeries and sometimes to manage a patient’s chronic pain. However, he underscores the point that it must be used very carefully.
“It’s about 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine,” Christo said. “So, a little bit of that can lead to an inability to breathe and then death.”
Chauvin is now on trial for being an idiot during the arrest by having his knee on Floyd’s neck for over 8 minutes. That’s not what killed him according to the autopsy report, and Chauvin was using an approved technique to subdue a suspect who is resisting arrest, something Floyd did from the moment the police approached him. Why I say Chauvin acted like an idiot is because of bad optics. He knew he was being filmed by bystanders. He knew people were yelling to him to get his knee off Floyd’s neck and that they too were being filmed. I don’t think there was a reason to keep his knee on the neck for that long, but then again, I wasn’t there and neither was Maya Echols who just threatened the civil society with more riots if the Woke Supremacy doesn’t get what they want. No matter how much of the video we can see, and there were a lot of videos convincing me that George Floyd was acting irrationally and the police went out of their way to calm him down and not get violent with him as he resisted getting into a police vehicle.
“If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose. Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just saying,” Echols threatened in a video. The video has since been deleted, but we have it here.
“Justice” apparently now means people riot in the street if they don’t get the conviction that they want…😳 pic.twitter.com/yeZ62Y6fWN
Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire? I don’t think anyone with a triple-digit IQ would be surprised by that. Black Lives Matter wants to do a repeat of the riots over the summer. I bet she is hoping that Chauvin gets off just so that BLM and others can riot again. It’s what Marxists do.
Her threats are dangerous and authorities really need to take her words seriously because we all remember what happened throughout the summer of last year when BLM and ANTIFA acted like domestic terrorists toppling statues, burning down buildings, beating on people, setting churches and police precincts on fire, killing about 25 innocent Americans, attacking police and all kinds of other crimes.
We also remember that the Democrats in those cities did absolutely nothing to quell the riots throughout the summer. In fact, some of them encouraged them by ignoring the rioters and only beefing up the protesters. I remember when leaders in some of those cities acted as if then-President Donald Trump was the enemy after he offered to bring federal agents in to end the riots in their cities. Remember when Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) refused to let Trump send federal agents in to quell the riots, saying that troops would just escalate the situation? What a dope.
Remember when our current vice president Kamala Harris went on TV and said that she encouraged the rioters and that they weren’t going to stop and that they shouldn’t stop? Of course, Harris will say now that she was talking about protesters, but she was really talking about rioters. How do we know? She also supported an organization that took donations to bail out rioters so that they could get back on the streets as soon as possible to create more mayhem.
Make no mistake about it, this video was made to send a threatening message to the jurors that they better vote to convict or else. Isn’t jury tampering a crime? Hello, FBI? If you were one of the jurors, would you vote to acquit? I don’t think any of them will out of fear of thugs like her and Black Lives Matter radicals.
My take on all of this? You reap what you sow. It is no coincidence that excessive force, racism, hate, and anger happens in Democrat-run cities.
In every major city run by Democrats, we see the same thing: Chicago, Philadelphia, Camden, Minneapolis, Newark, Baltimore, Ferguson, Cleveland, Compton, St. Louis, you name it, they all have the same exact problems: high unemployment, high drug and alcohol abuse, high government dependency, high property crime rates, large high school drop-out rates, high gun violence, and it’s all because of progressive Democrats who have run these cities for decades, some a hundred years. Progressive Democrat policies breed environments of poverty and crime. They are anti-business, anti-capitalist, and anti-people.
It’s high time that we call it what it is. Democrat cities are a lost cause, they are unsalvageable in their current state. Democrats have run these cities into the ground so badly they are insufferable to live in. Democrat politicians are so evil that they have convinced whole communities for generations that “racism” is the reason why they live in such poverty with no chance of things getting better. Well, I got news for you. There are too many black people and people of color who do not live in Democrat-run cities who are doing very well for themselves, they are successful because they have not been taught and raised to believe that racism is a reason they will never amount to anything in life.
When politicians throw police under the bus for doing a very difficult job just to placate angry voters, it breeds resentment, anger, and paranoia against cops, and it is the cops who have to bear the brunt of what the filthy politicians started.
It is about time that people who live in these cities woke the hell up and started to realize that their lives do not have to be this way. They need to learn that they don’t have to feel oppressed because they have the power to make it all stop, and when they use their power, they can turn it all around very quickly. If the people who live in these armpit cities could learn one lesson, it would be this; you can’t keep calling it oppression when you keep voting for it, and you keep voting for it. Stop it!
Democrats called the riots in Washington an armed insurrection even though there were no arms there. However, let a group of BLM members with what Democrats call an assault rifle at the state capital of Georgia and you don’t hear a peep out of them. This fake hysteria over the Georgia Voting Integrity bill is nonsense. Democrats led by Stacey Abrams claimed that Republicans requiring a picture ID in 2018 suppressed the Black and Hispanic voters.
But in 2018 a record was set both by Blacks and Hispanic voters and despite the massive influx of minority voters, Abrams lost the governor’s race by 55,000. Yet she and other Democrats insist that the election was stolen by way of voter suppression. So, how can you see a record number of Blacks voting, and yet the Black woman loses by 55,000 votes?
The answer would probably irritate Abrams but it was Black men who put Kemp over the top.
2020 exit polls by Edison Research found that Trump improved among black men and women in 2020. He took 18% of the Black male vote and 8% of the women vote, translating into Trump winning more Black votes than in 2016 by 4 percentage points. Blacks make up nearly 12% of the electorate. So, how did Trump do so much better among Blacks and Hispanics in Georgia and he lost? Maybe he did but it is a question that needs answering.
In Edison’s case, 18 percent of Black men voters cast ballots for Trump, while 8 percent of Black women did the same.
The state of Georgia will be auditing Fulton County votes and that will give us a good idea whether Trump lost fairly or not.
The Big Media is quick to label the events that occurred in Washington D.C. on January 6th as an armed insurrection, when it was not. But when BLM members bring AK 47’s to the Georgia Capitol, there’s no mention of guns.
The Big Media reported for months that the Capitol protests in Washington, D.C. on January 6th, included armed protesters but to date, there is no evidence of anyone being armed besides the Capitol Police there that day:
However, on March 25, a Georgia politician was arrested and taken out of a press conference where the Georgia Governor was announcing Georgia’s new law protecting voter integrity in the state.
The Democrat was not to be deterred. A couple of days later, she reappeared at the Georgia Capitol but this time she brought along armed friends. For some reason, the media never reported that her friends were armed at the Georgia Capitol.
The Mother of Tamir Rice, Samaria Rice, is leading a group of concerned citizens to absolutely defang a radical far-leftist movement of social justice warriors, who appear to be seeking fame and money rather than helping communities heal from devastating losses. She called out the “ambulance chasers” out by name and demanded they stop exploiting people’s deaths and injustices for profit.
“Step down from the spotlight of our fights. Do not do any more interviews, make any more t-shirts, or hold press conferences or events in the name of our loved ones anymore. Do not use our loved ones to market any events,” Samaria Rice said in a released statement, directed to Ben Crump and other high-profile celebrity personalities and actors.
Benjamin Crump, a prominent Civil Rights attorney, who has gotten major settlements for his clients in some overly aggressive ways, is being dragged around social media and highlighted as a corrupt figure, by members of the Black Community, who he claims to champion. It is noteworthy due to his connections to Democrat Kamala Harris, who has encouraged his lawless tactics have to shape powerful social justice movements that taunt and harass Americans and prevent an entire nation from healing.
RECALL THE MOTHER OF TAMIR RICE WAS AWARDED 6 MILLION DOLLARS BY THE CITY OF CLEVELAND IN 2016
The payment will avert a federal civil rights case brought against city authorities by Tamir’s relatives over the death of “a young boy with his entire life ahead of him, full of potential and promise”, their attorneys said on Monday.
“Although historic in financial terms, no amount of money can adequately compensate for the loss of a life,” said a statement issued by the firm of Jonathan Abady, Earl Ward and Zoe Salzman, their lead counsel. “Nothing will bring Tamir back. His unnecessary and premature death leaves a gaping hole for those who knew and loved him that can never be filled.”
The details of the settlement were contained in a filing by judge Solomon Oliver to federal court in Cleveland on Monday morning. The city will pay Tamir’s family $3m this year and $3m next year. Tamir’s estate will receive $5.5m, while his mother, Samaria Rice, and his sister, Tajai Rice, will receive $250,000 each directly,” they reported.
Angela Stanton King, who has been a guest of David Harris Jr, posted on March 15 about a post from the Mother of Tamir Rice, showing her concerns and frustration over the involvement of the Black Lives Matter movement and Crump’s actions as well as others.
Samaria Rice was banned from Facebook after the post:
Rice’s further statement appeared on Twitter the next day placed by an associate. In the statement, a group of concerned people called out high profile activists in the Black Lives Matter and complained about being mistreated and having the death of her child exploited by them.
“OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM SAMARIA RICE, MOTHER OF TAMIR RICE AND LISA SIMPSON, MOTHER OF RICHARD RISHER. Myself, @DaShaunLH, and @likefannielouhad a conference call with Samaria and Lisa, and below is their full statement regarding Tamika Mallory, Shaun King, Benjamin Crump etc,” the statement reads:
Rice claims that while Black Lives Matter and their numerous Global Grassroots marketing Platforms made massive amounts of money on exploring her story, she has received nothing and is living in poverty with other children.
She makes demands:
“Financial assistance for the Tamir Rice Foundation from all who have exploited Tamir Rice: Tamika Mallory, Shaun King, Benjamin Crump, and Black Lives Matter Global Network. I, Samaria Rice, purchased the building in 2018 and it needs remodeling, operational funds, etc.”
“Housing funds for Lisa Simpson, as I am battling homelessness with my current children. My son, Richard Risher, was killed by LAPD and I was offered no assistance from BLM. I am currently living in a motel with my children and need funds for housing.”
According to the Wikipedia page on the tragic incident, “On November 22, 2014, Tamir Rice, a 12-year old African-American boy, was killed in Cleveland, Ohio, by Timothy Loehmann, a 26-year-old white police officer. Rice was carrying a replica toy gun; Loehmann shot him almost immediately after arriving on the scene. Two officers, Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, were responding to a police dispatch call regarding a male who had a gun.”
Samaria Rice has set up a foundation and purchased a building with a mission, according to her website:
“The Tamir Rice Foundation invests in the growth and enrichment of all children through after-school programs in arts and culture by allowing them to express their truth to improve their lives as they grow into young adults.
The Tamir Rice Foundation also seeks to advocate for police reform by advocating to change laws and implement new policies for the system with community oversight for police accountability and community reform dialogue.”
So the question is, why are people out making massive amounts of money for activism on the death of her child and not supporting her foundation, in her son’s honor? And why is she being banned from social media for addressing this highly important matter? Where is Kamala Harris? Because she is also associated with Ben Crump, who has led this movement with the Trayvon Martin case.
BLM harassed very young girls on their way to a cheerleading competition. But in fairness, they had to. They couldn’t find any 90-year-old double amputee women in wheelchairs and they didn’t have a target outnumbered 20 to 1. It’s much easier to be brave when you pick on them.
A group of the cheerleaders were making their way to the building where the competition was to be held when a woman with a megaphone started taunting them with:
“The reason why you get to be here in these pretty little gorgeous outfits and your gorgeous hair and your gorgeous bows is because of your white privilege. Breonna [Taylor] is dead. Black mothers are burying their babies while white mothers send their daughters to cheer competitions.”
What Carmen M. Jones didn’t say was that none of the cheerleaders’ boyfriends started a gun battle with police officers. Even her boyfriend admitted that he shot first.
Another popular lie was that Taylor was shot while she slept in bed but she was actually wide awake and in the hallway. When you are being shot at, it is expected that you would fire back.
Jones also told the young girls to do something Black with their white privilege but I am pretty sure their mothers don’t allow them to loot business and burn them to the ground. However, that is just a guess.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Do blacks ever get killed by police unjustly? Of course, they do. And the police officer gets tried for murder
But BLM riots even if the police are not at fault. And let’s face it, when you are trying to win people over to your side, assaulting them on the streets, looting and burning buildings, and attacking police is a really bad way to go about it.
A BLM protest in New York City turned violent and two police officers and a journalist were injured by the rioters.
While Democrats condemn Trump supporters because seven police officers were injured, are totally ignoring the fact that antifa and BLM riots sanctioned by the Democrats have injured over 700 police officers, including several that could be blind for life after riots aimed laser pointers at their eyes.
The January 6th rioters did not loot or burn a single business whereas antifa and BLM have caused over $2 billion in insurance claims and that doesn’t count the damage to businesses that were not covered.
Kamala Harris contributed to a fund that helped bail rioters out of jail that allowed them to continue to riot.
Harris also touted the group and asked people to donate to them in order to bail criminals out of jail. 13 Biden campaign staffers also contributed.
Law Enforcement Today reports that “according to police, the protest was ‘peaceful at first.’ However, it turned violent once they reached 6th Avenue and West 54th Street, where they clashed with the police.
Two officers have injured as well as a journalist covering the riot.
The far-left activists did not just target police, they also attacked New York Daily News photographer Sam Costanza after someone recognized him from a protest at a police station last year and believed that he was a police officer.
“In the mistaken belief that Costanza was a police officer, the protester pointed Constanza out to his violent counterparts, who jumped him,” Law Enforcement Today’s report continues. “Costanza believes he was attacked by 10-15 people, who assaulted him with fists and other weapons. He said he also believed those violent protesters broke his nose, but he declined medical attention at the scene.”
One of the militants, Angel Rivera, was arrested after assaulting two police officers. He kicked one in the foot and bit another on his leg.
It is amazing how much the Democrats are playing up a three-hour riot while ignoring the summer-long riots by their allies antifa and BLM. Hypocrisy is the call sign of the far left.
According to Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, whose organization has rioted all across the country claims that the rioters in Washington DC were treated differently than if they were Black.
The police were not ordered to stand down, and in most cases, the DAs dropped all charges related to the riots. And Kamala Harris won’t help them post bail.
And during all the riots BLM has been involved in, not one rioter was shot dead, but in the three hours, the Washington riot lasted, one unarmed white woman was shot dead by the police.
Prosecutors say they will charge rioters with federal crimes that carry long sentences, but antifa organizer John Sullivan was arrested for storming the capital, was released without charges.
“I’m really disturbed by how far we’ve allowed white supremacist violence to reign in this country. And I was the most disturbed by the double standard. I’ve spent the last 20 years being a protestor, a community organizer, and, in the last seven years, supporting and helming the protest movement that is called Black Lives Matter, and we’ve experienced military, National Guard, militarized police, rubber bullets and tear gas at protests which are largely peaceful and protests that are talking about racial injustice and the fight for Black lives.”
“And so, to watch mostly white people, white men, storm the U.S. Capitol with no consequence or accountability was shocking. We have to come to terms in this country about who this country truly protects and who it does not.”
“It’s all very clear that what we witnessed on Jan. 6 for the better part of the day in D.C. was not just white supremacist terrorism, but also law enforcement allowing for these white supremacist terrorists to run amok in the nation’s Capitol.”
“Witnessing the confederate flag being raised was both ironic but also reality — plain and simple — which is that this country is still dealing with its origin story, which is an origin story of white supremacist violence and the symbol of that white supremacist violence is the Confederate flag and it has been for a very long time.”
She forgot to mention the fact that in Washington, no businesses were looted or burned to the ground and no one was assaulted for having different beliefs.
That is one huge difference between the Washington riot and the BLM riots.
Keep some perspective.
Insurance companies paid out close to 2 billion dollars in riot damages from BLM.
A question America. What would happen to a Trump supporter who harassed Biden supporters in a bar, video recording them, after getting kicked out finds another group, harassing them too, then while leaving the area runs one of them over before speeding away?
The answer is obvious especially when couples like Mark and Patricia McCloskey, trying to mind their own business, were threatened in front of their own home by an angry BLM mob, had charges brought against them.
In contrast, these same domestic terrorist groups, ANTIFA and BLM, openly threaten American citizen’s restaurants, their jobs, and homes, without any consequences.
The answer to my opening question, the hypothetical Trump supporter would have been arraigned, prosecuted, and put in jail for multiple years.
In another sign of no “justice”, prosecutors have declined to file charges against a Vancouver Black Lives Matter militant who followed the Proud Boys to a bar following a memorial for the Patriot Prayer member who had been murdered by Antifa in Portland — running one of them over with his vehicle.
The victim, Shane Moon, as well as other witnesses, say he was a targeted attack due to his political beliefs. He was placed in intensive following the attack, as he was bleeding from his brain, sustained damaged to his left temporal lobe, has a concussion, and could not remember the impact.
“Court records filed Dec. 11 in Clark County Superior Court, show Charles R. Holliday-Smith, 30, was exonerated, pending further investigation. His bail of $100,000, which had already been posted, was also exonerated,”
The Columbian reports. “No charges were officially filed against Holliday-Smith, who’s also known as Robbie Smith, who had been accused of first-degree assault and hit-and-run resulting in injury.”
The Gateway Pundit has obtained the email sent to inform the victim that they would be exonerating the attacker.
In a passionate speech to the House of Commons this week, Kemi Badenoch slammed the teaching of Critical Race Theory and Black Lives Matter ideology in schools.
“What we are against is the teaching of contested political ideas as if they are accepted fact,” Badenoch said on the House floor in a clip of her speech that is now making the rounds on social media.
“We don’t do this with Communism, we don’t do this with Socialism, we don’t do it with Capitalism,” she continued. “And I want to speak about a dangerous trend in race relations that has come far too close to home to my life and this is the promotion of Critical Race Theory – an ideology that sees my blackness as victimhood and their whiteness as oppression. I want to be absolutely clear: This government stands unequivocally against Critical Race Theory.”
She called Black Lives Matter “a political movement” and called for members of the opposite party to condemn many hateful actions conducted by BLM (including an instance she recounted of white BLM protestors calling a black armed police officer the N-word).
Badenoch called the efforts to teach Critical Race Theory without balancing it with the opposing viewpoint in schools illegal.
Here’s the one-minute-forty-five-second clip from her eight-and-a-half-minute speech:
Badenoch was responding to comments made by Labour MP Dawn Butler, who argued that history is taught to children in the UK “to make one group of people feel inferior and another group of people feel superior.”
Butler called for the “decolonization” of history.
Badenoch opened her speech in response by detailing the many opportunities children in the UK are provided to learn about other cultures.
“Our curriculum does not need de-colonizing for the simple reason that it is not colonized,” she said. “We should not apologize for the fact that British children primarily study the history of these islands.”
Here is her full speech, well worth the entire watch:
Kemi Badenoch is a conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Saffron Walden, a town in the district of Essex lying between London and Cambridge. Badenoch was appointed as Minister for Equalities on February 13th of this year, a position within the Government Equalities Office, responsible for leading “work on policy relating to women, sexual orientation and transgender equality.”
Born Olukemi Olufunto Adegoke in Wimbledon, Kemi grew up in Nigeria and immigrated to the UK when she was 16 years old. She holds degrees in both engineering and law and was elected to the House of Commons in 2017.
In her maiden speech to the House of Commons, Badenoch spoke of growing up in Nigeria under a socialist state: “Going without electricity, doing my homework by candlelight because the state electricity board could not provide power. Fetching water a mile away in heavy, rusty buckets because the nationalised water could not get water to flow from the taps.”
“Unlike many colleagues born after 1980,” she continued, “I was unlucky enough to live under socialist policies. It’s not something I’d wish on anyone, and that’s just one of the reasons that I am a Conservative.”
If you were running for Senator in California, Illinois, or New York, supporting BLM might be an advantage. But in Iowa, it can be the kiss of death.
Theresa Greenfield is running for the Senate in Iowa. She was secretly recoded explaining how she is a strong supporter of the violent BLM movement. This could be the end of her campaign.
Greenfield has been running as a conservative Democrat, which is something you must do if you wish to win in Iowa. Many Democrats run as conservative but as soon as they get elected they turn full Nancy Pelosi. Mitt Romney for example. In 2018 that’s how the Democrats took over the House but once they were in office they begged Pelosi to allow them to do her bidding.
The undercover journalist got Greenfield’s husband to admit he and his wife are big BLM supporters and that she communicates with the group. The agent was then able to get Greenfield to admit to the same thing. The sting was operated by Accuracy in Media. Campaign staffer Brittan Ostby also confirmed Greenfield supported BLM.*
Black Lives Matter has pursued controversies in the past. Among them: Co-founder Patrisse Cullors described fellow organizers as “trained Marxists” in a newly surfaced 2015 video, and the group apparently deleted a page on its website that called for changes to “the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement” in favor of “extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Matthew Bruce, the leader of the organization in Iowa, has been arrested five times this summer, most recently for allegedly trying to blind police officers with lasers. Following that arrest, he has been accused of planning to shut down the highway and stage a fake hostage situation.
“Black Lives Matter in Iowa is a violent organization. Iowans don’t like it,” Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette told Fox News. “Iowans deserve to know what politicians really think.”
In a recent poll, 58% of Iowans think the BLM riots have been harmful in raising awareness of racial issues. Greenfield says that our entire system is chock full of systemic racism, including the police but at the same time she claims the police aren’t racist. She agrees with BLM. You figure it out.
