Abe Lincoln statue torched in Chiraq

Open season on destroying anything related to America’s history.

From NBC Chicago: An Abraham Lincoln was damaged and burned in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood late Wednesday, Ald. Ray Lopez said.

The statue was found burned near 69th Street and Wolcott, authorities said.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism,” Lopez wrote on Facebook along with an image of the charred structure. He encouraged anyone who has information on what happened to contact police or his office “immediately.”

Police did not immediately have information on what happened.

The statue, a bust of Lincoln, was erected by Phil Bloomquist on Aug. 31, 1926.

It is one of many that have been vandalized across the country in wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and the president’s comments that followed.

On Tuesday, someone vandalized the Lincoln Memorial, writing “F— law” in red spray paint on a pillar at the monument. 

Cities and states accelerated their plans to remove Confederate monuments from public property Tuesday as the violence over a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville moved leaders across the country to plan to wipe away much of the remaining Old South imagery.

The changes were publicized as President Donald Trump defended Confederate statues in wide-ranging remarks.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down,” Trump said during a visit to Trump Tower in New York. “I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?

Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to call out a Republican senator who had criticized his equivocal remarks on bigotry and hatred, and to lament at “the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart” by removing “beautiful statues and monuments” honoring Confederate leaders.

Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett won’t stand for the anthem until he feels like everything’s equal

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett tells CNN that his decision to sit for the national anthem isn’t meant to dishonor the American flag but to bring a greater spotlight upon the issues the country is facing.

In an interview with Jake Tapper that aired Wednesday, Bennett said he’ll continue to sit.

I won’t stand until I feel like everything’s equal, I won’t stand until everybody has justice, I won’t stand until everybody has freedom, the things that American is built on,” he said. “I think protesting the national anthem begins a conversation about the truth of America. I’m not protesting the flag. I’m actually trying to honor what we’re supposed to be honoring, the freedom of America, the equality of America, the justice for all and the liberty. Those are the things that I’m trying to remind people that we all fought for, the forefathers. We said we would fight against terrorists, domestic and foreign, and right now there’s whole bunch of domestic terrorism, domestic hate going on …

“So I want to bring up those issues and create those conversations and get people off their butt and go out and try to act and fix the problems and go out and work with people of different races, different colors, different sexes, different genders, whatever it is, just go out and try to find out how to help instead of being a problem and sitting back and being silent. I think at this point, if you’re silent right now, you’re being dishonest about the truth of what’s going on.”

Bennett sat on the bench at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Sunday night during the national anthem ahead of Seattle’s preseason opener against the Chargers. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that he supports Bennett’s decision to sit but believes everyone should stand for the anthem.

Bennett told CNN that he made his decision after seeing what happened Saturday in Charlottesville, Va.

“I couldn’t do it anymore,” he said. “I had to be able to stand up and I thought that it was the right thing to do for me.”

Bennett was asked what he’d say to military families who have lost love ones in combat and view his protest as a sign of disrespect because of what the flag means to them.

“My father was in the military, a lot of my family was in the military, I’ve got friends who are vets, who’ve been through war, who’ve done it all and like I said at the beginning, I honor the military,” he said. “I do stuff for kids in Hawaii (where he lives in the offseason) and the military bases, I’ve lived on a military base, I grew up in a military family.

“I would say I honor the military every time I see them, and at this point, like I said, I’m actually not dishonoring the contributions that they made if somebody loses their life. I’m actually trying to honor that. I’m honoring the freedom and liberty that they’ve fought for to be able to have that. That’s the thing I’m really trying to honor. I’m not trying to dishonor the flag. I’m more about the principles, honoring the principles that America was built on and it’s the liberty, freedom and justice.

“And like I said, I cannot stand until I see equality and freedom every day.”

California is No. 1 for hate groups, report says

california

Even though this report was issued by one of the liberals’ favorite organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, don’t expect the MSM to run with this story. Doesn’t fit their current narrative.

From Fox News: The states with the highest number of hate groups may not be the areas of the country that many people would assume.

California ranks highest among the 50 states, with nearly 80 different hate groups calling the Golden State home, says a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most of the groups are concentrated in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay area and the Sacramento region, the report says.

Data show the western half of the U.S. has significantly fewer hate groups than the East Coast, the report says, but California — the nation’s most populous state — easily has the highest number of hate groups operating within its borders.

The “Hate Map” report shows 917 hate groups operating across the country. It includes data not only on white supremacists, but Black Separatist organizations and anti-LGBT groups as well.

The report also cites numbers from 2016 that show 130 Ku Klux Klan groups and 193 Black Separatist groups active across the county. The SPLC also notes there has been a nearly 200  percent increase in anti-Muslim groups since 2015.

In 2011, the total number hit its peak with over 1,000 groups operating. That number dropped to 784 just three years later, but there has been a steady increase since then. The SPLC also says in its report that the country has seen an unprecedented rise in hate groups since the turn of the century. In 1999 when there were only 457 documented groups in the country.

Florida ranks No. 2 with 63 hate groups, and is No. 1 on the East Coast.

Ranking third is New York state, home to 47 hate groups. Pennsylvania is not far behind, with 40 groups.

States with the lowest numbers of hate groups lie mostly in the Midwest and West. Iowa has only four groups in operation, while Wyoming and New Mexico have two apiece and North Dakota and Vermont have one each.

Data for the “Hate Map” list was compiled using hate group publications and websites, citizen and law-enforcement reports, sources from the field and news reports, the SPLC says.

SJWs on a manhunt: Professor wrongly labeled as racist in Charlottesville

Wrongly accused/@youngwaxgod Twitter photo

Expect more of this to happen. SJWs are on a mission to destroy innocent white people.

From BBC: A university professor has been wrongly described as a white supremacist by amateur internet detectives on social media wishing to publicly shame those who took part in rallies in Charlottesville.

Professor Kyle Quinn who works at the University of Arkansas was mistakenly identified as one of the unmasked protesters taking part in far right protests on Friday.

The professor’s ordeal began on Saturday when thousands began sharing an image of a bearded man posted by Twitter user Yes Youre Racist. It has been publishing photos of those who attended the rally under the hashtag #ExposetheAltRight.

The request didn’t go unheard. The internet’s digital detectives found an image of Professor Quinn and claimed he was the man pictured at the rally. Although the professor may share a similar look and build to the man photographed, he was in fact more than 1000 miles away from the demonstrations in Virginia.

But the close resemblance was enough to satisfy many of the internet’s amateur sleuths. More than 11,000 people retweeted the photo. One social media user posted: “My Facebook feed says this is University of Arkansas faculty member, Kyle P. Quinn.”

Others tweeted the University of Arkansas posting: “@UArkansas FIRE KYLE P. QUINN. There cannot be any negotiation or wavering on this issue.”

Another user posted: “@UArkansas FIRE KYLE P QUINN Engineer!!!! OPEN RACIST ON STAFF! What kind of University would keep him employed?”

On Saturday Professor Quinn was forced to defend his character by by tweeting: “The man in the photo is not me. I am in Fayetteville, Arkansas, not Virginia.”

A day later he took to social media again posting: “The individual who wore an engineering shirt in #Charlottesville is not me. I proudly support a diverse environment at U of A.”

But his responses didn’t stop scores of people from calling him a racist, threatening him, publishing his home address and demanding he lose his job. The reaction prompted a further explanatory tweet from the professor.

Newsweek is delusional: “Obama is returning to politics, and Trump isn’t going to like it”

maga

Demorats lost over 1,000 seats during Obama’s presidency and the DNC was left in disarray. The grand total loss: 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.

But you keep telling yourself that Obama’s return to politics is going to scare Trump, Newsweek. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

From Newsweek (via Yahoo): The time has finally come: Barack Obama is about to publicly get back into politics.

The former president may have spent the beginning of this year on vacation, but he and his aides are planning his return to the Democratic Party this fallThe Hill reported Friday. And even though many of his efforts will center on fundraising and campaigning for people like Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, experts say Obama needs to be careful with Donald Trump.

“He would be the target against which Trump would direct his fury,” Southern Methodist University political science professor Cal Jillson told The Hill. “From Trump’s perspective, nothing better could happen.”

Indeed, Trump is not likely to welcome Obama’s comeback. The current commander in chief can’t stop talking about his predecessor. Earlier this week, after a Washington Post report indicated North Korea was expanding its nuclear capabilities, Trump retweeted a message from former U.S. ambassador John Bolton saying that “our country & civilians are vulnerable today because @BarackObama did not believe in national missile defense. Let’s never forget that.” He also retweeted an unofficial poll asking who was a better president.

“This president has a very unusual obsession with his predecessor and constantly comparing himself to President Obama,” Obama-era Assistant Defense Secretary Derek Chollet told CNN. “This is not a president who seems to be singularly focused on what is a genuinely a global security threat in North Korea.”

Part of this may have to do with Trump’s poll numbers. His approval ratings have been slipping for months, recently hitting 37 percent. Obama left office at 59 percent, according to Gallup. (According to Rasmussen: The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.)

Since he moved out of the White House, Obama has spoken out a couple of times against Trump and his policies. In January, for example, a spokesman for the ex-president issued a statement opposing Trump’s travel ban. In June, Obama denounced Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

Nobody quite knows what Obama will do going forward to help the Democratic Party, which suffered from division during the primaries before losing the general election last year. The former president has reportedly been taking meetings with lawmakers in the House and Senate, as well as Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, but he’s previously said he wants to help develop “a whole new generation of talent” that could revitalize the group.

“There are such incredible young people who not only worked on my campaign but I’ve seen in advocacy groups,” Obama told NPR in December. “I’ve seen [them be] passionate about issues like climate change, or conservation, criminal justice reform. You know, campaigns to—for a livable wage, or health insurance. And making sure that whatever resources, credibility, spotlight that I can bring to help them rise up. That’s something that I think I can do well, I think Michelle [Obama] can do well.

TDS: Americans root for Kim Jong-un

rosie odonnell apologizes to kim jong un

Traitor Rosie O’Donnell in her apology to dictator Kim Jong-un

When President Trump was elected, I predicted that the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) would be a thousand times worse than Bush Derangement Syndrome. And my prediction has come true.

Amidst Fat Boy puffing to nuke the US, liberals have shown their allegiance – to a brutal killer and dictator who threatens the United States.

Here are a few examples:

Rep. Keith Ellison: “Kim Jong-un is acting more responsible than Donald Trump.”

Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein said this on MSNBC: “North Korea has been demonized by US, forced to attain Nukes. Russian interference based on circumstantial evidence.”

Fat womyn and angry libtard Rosie O’Donnell promised to leave the US if Trump was elected. Just like a bunch of other celebrities who promised to do the same, she is still living in the good ‘ol USA. She also promoted a “Trump-killing” game.

Rosie has now offered an apology to Kim Jong-un for Donald Trump. See her apology here.

I suggest all of the libtards who are siding with North Korea take a little visit over there to offer your sympathies in person. I DARE YOU.

Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.

Los Angeles targets contractors who might work on border wall

gil cedillo

Council member Gil Cedillo believes Mexico, not three US states, is California’s “dearest” neighbor

Demorats: All for bullying when it fits their political agenda.

From Fox News: The city of Los Angeles wants to require contractors to reveal whether they have ever been involved with President Trump’s border wall construction.

City lawmakers say residents have a right to know whether companies are working on the controversial agenda.

The city council voted on Tuesday to require companies working with the city to say whether they had worked on building, design, or sold materials for “any proposed border wall between Mexico and the United States of America.”

“We want to know if there are people who do business with the city of Los Angeles … who wish to profit from building a wall that would divide us from our nearest and dearest neighbor Mexico,” said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

Tim Murphy, board president of CALBX, called the move “absurd” and said it sets a dangerous precedent for discrimination against companies.

“They’re moving beyond the political theater and hyperbole that this issue generates,” Murphy told “Fox & Friends.” “They are creating, in fact, a political blacklist, threatening any company that would express an interest, not actually build, but express an interest in working on the border wall.”

State Sen. Ricardo Lara wants to expand the move, preventing all of California from doing business with companies involved in the border wall.

Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, are threatening a government shutdown over border wall funding when the government must negotiate a new federal budget in October.
