Son of Israel’s PM Netanyahu says leftists are more dangerous than neo-Nazis

On Tuesday, August 15, in a rowdy exchange with journalists at Trump Tower in New York, President Trump refused to lay the blame solely on the “Unite the Right” rally for last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, VA. He said:

“I think there is blame on both sides. You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now. What about the alt-left that came charging… at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?… There are two sides to a story. What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day.”

Indeed. Did you know that the Left in Charlottesville attacked the Right with urine and concrete bombs, as well a lethal flame thrower?

For saying that both sides are to be blamed, President Trump continues to be pilloried by the MSM and across the political spectrum.

Now, the son of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is weighing in.

Yair Netanyahu posted this on his Facebook page:

“To put things in perspective. I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazis scums in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out. However the thugs of Antifa and BLM who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.

Yair’s remarks received 1.4K “likes”.

26-year-old Yair is Benjamin Netanyahu’s son with his third and current wife, former El Al flight attendant Sara Ben-Artzi

According to The Times of Israel, Yair’s views depart from his father’s.

On August 15, after he was criticized for staying silent on Charlottesville, PM Netanyahu tweeted that that he was “outraged by expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism. Everyone should oppose this hatred.” Asked about his son Yair’s comments, sources close to the prime minister said, “Yair is an adult and his views are his alone.”

Israeli politicians are split on President Trump’s stance.

Likud MK Oren Hazan said that President Trump “is right. Violence and extremism on any side is forbidden and demands condemnation. That doesn’t matter to the bleeding hearts on the left and in the media. After all, they believe that only the right is extremist and violent.”

Other Israeli politicians are much more critical of Trump’s position:

  • Education Minister Naftali Bennett has called on US leaders to denounce the rally’s “displays of anti-Semitism.”
  • Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked who, like Bennett, is of the Jewish Home party, has urged prosecution of neo-Nazi activists.
  • Yesh Atid chair MK Yair Lapid said: “There aren’t two sides. When Neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville and scream slogans against Jews and in support of white supremacy, the condemnation has to be unambiguous. They represent hate and evil. Anyone who believes in the human spirit must stand against them without fear.”
  • Zionist Union number two MK Tzipi Livni explicitly criticized Trump’s equivalence: “When it comes to racism, anti-Semitism and Nazism, there are never two equal sides. There’s good and there’s evil. Period.”

I have a question for Mr. Bennett, Shaked, Lapid and Livni:

How come those evil, racist, anti-Semitic Nazis at the Charlottesville rally, who were carrying flaming torches, making “Heil Hitler” hand salutes, and shouting “White lives matter!” look like caricatures of Jews?

Street artist’s Facebook page shut down because of “hate speech” aimed at Zuckerberg

fck zuck

Libtards will find a way to label anything as “hate speech” if it offends their sensibilities.

From Hollywood Reporter: “F*ck Zuck 2020” posters, the symbol after the “F” being a middle finger, were hung in various California cities.

The work of a conservative street artist known for skewering the liberal politics of celebrities and corporations has been deemed “hate speech” by Facebook, which shut his page down on Sunday.

The notice comes just days after the artist known as Sabo attacked Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg with posters disparaging his alleged presidential aspirations. “F*ck Zuck 2020” read the posters, the symbol after the “F” being a middle finger. They were hung in the dead of night last week in various California cities.

“Your page has been unpublished for using hate speech,” read the message at the Unsavory Agents fan page run by Sabo. Sabo is the artist’s pen name and Unsavory Agents is the name of his website and business where his artwork is sold.

Sabo last struck on Friday when he plastered fake ads and posters around Google and YouTube offices in Venice Calif. Those ads, some as large as 30 square feet and some plastered onto bus stop benches, ridiculed Google as a place that is hostile to free thinkers, a reference to the recent firing of an employee who penned a 3,000 word memo to co-workers critical of his employer’s focus on diversity in its hiring practices.

Sabo has also created disparaging street art aimed at Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, Cher and many more.

All of it is politically incorrect, Sabo freely acknowledges, but not “hate” worthy of censorship.

While Facebook wasn’t specific as to what it objected to, Sabo assumes it is retribution for his attack on Zuckerberg. Though Facebook may also have objected to recent posters featuring commentary on the Black Lives Matter political movement. Those faux ads, made to look like a genuine movie poster for War for the Planet of the Apes, feature the image of a well-armed ape on horseback with the text: “BLM: Kill Whitey.”

Then again, it could be a host of things that Facebook doesn’t like, considering Sabo has demeaned progressive sacred cows like climate change, affirmative action, transgenderism and much more.

But even though it’s not the first time Facebook has tried to correct his behavior, Sabo is convinced his banishment this time has something to do with Facebook’s leader.

“It took a week, but it finally came down,” Sabo tells THR. “Zuckerberg isn’t only a thief, he’s thin-skinned.”

Facebook didn’t immediately return a request for comment on Sunday.

Oakland Raiders have their own Kaepernick: Marshawn Lynch

Another NFL season I won’t be watching.

From Fox News: Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the national anthem over the weekend, ahead of a Saturday preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, the AP reports.

The NFL player was photographed on top of an orange cooler with a banana in Glendale, Ariz. 

Last year, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and kneeled during the national anthem and protested police brutality.

Lynch previously backed Kaepernick, telling comedian Conan O’Brien in September 2016, “I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up and get murdered.”

“If you’re really not racist then you won’t see what he done, what he’s doing, as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have,” Lynch said at the time.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio says he didn’t know about Lynch’s plans ahead of the game, according to NFL.com.

“On Marshawn, talked to Marshawn trying to make sure we’re on the same page,” the coach said. “He said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself.’ I said, ‘So you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem. But I’m going to respect you as a man, you do your thing. We’ll do ours.’ It’s a non-issue for me.”

Police in Massachusetts seek help for more information after video surfaced of a group of teenagers approaching another group and proceeding to viciously attack them — seemingly for no reason… Read More


It’s racism alright

Blacks fueled by race hatred attacking people of other races 

This happened at Marina Bay in Quincy, Massachusetts, an upscale waterfront entertainment and residential area that is a mostly “white” neighborhood.

Hey black people, if you want to know why non-blacks don’t trust you, the answer is easy. It’s because you allow assholes like these to act as your ambassadors.

 

CBS’s “SWAT” team talks “Taking on the Trump Years”

Another Hollyweird TV show I won’t be watching.

From Hollywood Reporter: CBS’ forthcoming SWAT remake has the same title, the same font and the same theme music as the original ’70s cop drama, but star Shemar Moore insists the similarities end there.

“I call it SWAT 2017,” he told reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. “We’re taking on real life. We’re taking on the Trump years.”

Inspired by the film of the same name, the drama centers on a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. sergeant (Moore) who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles.

The pilot kicks off after an unarmed teenager is killed by police — an event all too similar to recent real-world events, which is exactly what the series will lean into. “It’s not Black Lives Matter, it’s All Lives Matter,” Moore said. “It’s fear. It’s racism. It’s terrorism. It’s subject matter today.”

Executive producer Aaron Rahsaan Thomas (The Get Down) originally pitched the series based on his own divisive experiences with the police growing up in Kansas City. Thomas explained he had a neighbor who was a victim of police violence growing up. “On the other hand, another neighbor of mine was a police officer so we had a love-hate relationship with police officers growing up,” he explained.

Aware of the “conversation that’s been in the zeitgeist lately” with the Black Lives Matter movement, Thomas and fellow exec producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) made sure to examine both sides of that difficult conversation. “This is a pro-cop show but this is also a pro-community show,” Ryan said. “I want to see how the cops deal with people. I want to see how the people deal with cops.”

Subsequently, Moore’s character not only works as an officer in South Central but he also lives in the neighborhood where he works. “We wanted to explore a character that had his foot in both sides,” Thomas said, pointing to the unique perspective that would come with such a character.

“I think the characters on this show are heroes and I think you can be pro-police and yet also be pro-truth that there are certain incidents and times and events that shouldn’t happen,” Ryan explained. “That’s what fascinated me about this show is [to] look at the police and the communities they’re policing and sort of figure out if there’s way to bring these communities closer together.”

Ryan later added: “I think viewers recognize the truth, appreciate the truth and will embrace the truth when you show it to them.”

However, the veteran exec producer admitted he was worried about how much CBS would embrace the show’s more honest approach in the early stages of SWAT’s development. “‘Is this something CBS is really going to want us to tell?,'” Ryan recalled thinking. However, he said the leadership at the network “encouraged us to tell the story and tell the truth that we wanted to tell,” he said. Despite the recent change at the top, with Kelly Kahl and Thom Sherman taking over for Glenn Geller, “we still get encouraged on a daily basis to tell the story we want to tell, to the tell truth about the police and the communities.”

While no one on the panel promised definitively that SWAT would offer a solution, Moore was optimistic that the show would at least start a conversation (in addition to offering action scenes that Ryan promised will “be a notch above” the CBS standard.

“Look at the news. We’re based in L.A., but it’s a perfect time for SWAT. We’re seeing S.W.A.T. stories all over the world,” Moore said. “Hopefully we’re going to show you both sides of the conversation: blue, civilians, both sides of the argument. Maybe not fixing it, but bridging the gap.”

SWAT premieres Nov. 2 on CBS.

Poll reveals NFL ratings fell over national anthem protests

colin kaepernick

With this news after Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling stunt and his wearing a t-shirt with a picture of one of the co-founders of the racist Black Panthers, it’s not looking good that any NFL team will want to hire him soon.

From MSN: A recent poll by J.D. Power revealed that the dip in NFL ratings last season was largely due to players kneeling during the national anthem, the Associated Press reported.

According to the survey, 9,200 people who went to either a football, basketball or hockey game were asked if they watched fewer games broadcasted and to give their reasoning.

Twenty six percent of people who tuned out of watching football said it was because players knelt during the anthem.

Another 24 percent of people said they didn’t watch as many games because of domestic violence incidents involving players or because of game delays.

Sixteen percent said the presidential election replaced their NFL interest, and 5 percent said they got rid of cable.

It’s worth noting only 12 percent of those surveyed said they stopped watching NFL coverage, which equates to roughly 1,100 people.

“Don’t kill anybody”: Murder-free weekend urged in Baltimore

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh

It’s come to this: Wearing t-shirts begging folks not to kill. Mayor Catherine Pugh and former mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake must be so proud.

From MSN: A 44-year-old mother might seem an unusual visitor on the drug corners of Baltimore, but Erricka Bridgeford has stopped by them for weeks to make her pitch for peace.

Forget your grudges for one weekend, she urges the young men she finds. Help bring a 72-hour truce to a city besieged by gun violence. “It’s a city-wide call,” she tells them, “but I’m talking to you.”

Bridgeford and other neighborhood leaders are drumming up support for the three-day ceasefire to quell Baltimore’s violence on the first weekend of August. She admits, however, that such peace is a tall order for a city that’s seen 188 killings this year.

Organizers aim to stop the shooting from Friday, Aug. 4 through Sunday, Aug. 6 with a unified and blunt message: “Nobody kill anybody.”

Their message has been printed on T-shirts and fliers. They designed a website and held community meetings. More than 1,600 people visited their Facebook page. The grassroots campaign has swelled since it began in May.

“I’ve seen the momentum build over the past several weeks,” said T.J. Smith, spokesman for Baltimore police. “We are all in this together and we’re 1,000 percent supportive of the efforts.”

The campaign urges people to put aside their guns and join weekend events for healing, from a peace rally Friday evening to a vigil Sunday where participants will read the names of every person killed in 2017.

“The Baltimore Ceasefire was not declared by any one organization,” organizers wrote on their website. “This ceasefire is the product of Baltimore residents not only being exhausted by homicides, but believing that Baltimore can have a murder-free weekend if everyone takes responsibility.”

More than 600 people have pledged to keep the peace, they wrote. Among them are some of the young men Bridgeford has met on the corners. “You just talk to them like they’re your little brother,” she said.

A professional mediator, neighborhood volunteer and part-time Uber driver — “Everyone who gets in my car leaves with a flyer and a speech” — Bridgeford’s own younger brother was gunned down a decade ago in Southwest Baltimore. His killer was never caught.

Next month’s ceasefire would prove successful if it deters a single shooting, she said. And she figured the movement has already saved a life somewhere. “Somebody was plotting on this weekend,” she said. “Now they’re not going to do it because of a rumbling in their soul.”

The organizers are raising money through their website for more fliers. Some of the money will be donated to the families of anyone killed over the ceasefire weekend. Bridgeford is urging everyone she meets to echo the call for peace. “Jumping out in open-air drug markets might not be for everyone,” she said. “But we’re asking everyone to do their part.”

Community ceasefires, however, have failed to stem the violence in the past. The group Mothers of Murdered Sons called for a ceasefire over Mother’s Day weekend, but at least four people were shot, including a 59-year-old man and 17-year-old woman; both were killed.

Other communities have called for ceasefires after spates of violence in Birmingham, Ala. and Berkeley, Calif., and such efforts are as much about empowering residents as reducing homicide statistics, said Cassandra Crifasi, deputy director of the Johns Hopkins-Baltimore Collaborative for Violence Reduction.

Persistent violence often leaves neighbors feeling powerless, she said. “Communities feel like they can’t do things for themselves. They don’t have a voice. They don’t feel heard,” she said. “This effort seems to me like the people most affected by violence are standing up and saying, ‘We’re not going to take this anymore.'”

A similar awareness campaign began in Chicago in 2013 and has spread across the country with people wearing orange in June to draw attention to the scourge of gun violence. Across the country more than 90 people are shot and killed every day, according to the Wear Orange campaign.

Baltimore, meanwhile, remains gripped by its own violent spike, with 2017 on pace to be the city’s deadliest year ever. The number of homicides shot up to 344 in 2015; another 318 people were killed last year. Baltimore had not exceeded 300 annual homicides for decades before 2015.

“I’m cautiously optimistic,” Crifasi said of the ceasefire. “It indicates to me there are lots of people in Baltimore still invested in the safety and security of their communities.”

People like Bridgeford who has carried the message to Baltimore’s drug corners. She found an unexpected audience, even encouragement in the streets. “I’ve absolutely heard skepticism,” she said. “But even the skeptics are like, ‘Stay out here.'”
