Onfroy: Criminal who assaults a pregnant woman wants to “speak” for future generations

This 19-year-old rapper (real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) is a piece of work who should be in jail. From Wikipedia:

“In 2014, Onfroy was sent to a youth detention center for a year on gun possession charges According to Onfroy, during his time in detention, the district attorney was attempting to try Onfroy as an adult for gun possession charges which, according to him, would have landed him 5-10 years in prison.

In July 2016, Onfroy was arrested and charged with robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. After posting the bail of $10,000 in early October of the same year, while awaiting trial, Onfroy was arrested again later that month on charges of false imprisonment, witness tampering, and aggravated battery of a pregnant victim. Onfroy was released from jail on bail on March 26, 2017 and his probation for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon started on March 27, 2017 and will last until March 26, 2023. Onfroy’s trial for aggravated battery of a pregnant victim was originally going to take place in May 2017 and has since been pushed back several times, now taking place on October 5, 2017.

Sick piece of garbage he is.

From Daily Mail: A rapper has been condemned over his latest music video which shows him lynching a young white boy.

XXXTentacion’s video for Look at Me shows him fitting a noose around the young blond-haired child’s neck and raising him off the ground on a stage. The child’s feet are seen twitching – a common phenomenon during hanging – before he goes limp.

Elsewhere in the video, XXXTentacion, 19, appears hanging himself along with two other black men. The video also includes reenactments of the historic, racially-charged killings of Emmett Till and Philando Castile.

The recent death of Heather Hyer, an anti-protester who was killed after being run over at an alt-right march in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, was also depicted.

The rapper claims the video decries racial violence across the board and says the lynching scene  is a part of that. He insists he is trying to demonstrate what the lasting effects will be on the younger generation if the same violence continues.

But critics slammed him for using a child to make his point with such ‘disturbing’ imagery. ‘I’m actually disturbed at the video of XXXTentacion featuring a young boy being hanged. This is beyond a joke,’ said one person.

‘Don’t make excuses for this sickness, simulated violence towards children is not cool or progressive. Not even to make a point. It’s dangerous,’ they said.

‘I have a huge problem with xxxtentacion and his new video. It doesn’t have anything to do with equality what so ever,’ another said.

One person accused the rapper of inciting a ‘race war’.  

‘If the RACIST POS xxxtentacion gets his race war, who do you think will be left standing?’ one person said.

At the end of the video, the musician delivers a long message on racial violence and calls for it to come to an end for the sake of younger generations. 

‘Equity and equality. The end result we all, the ones that don’t want to live in misery, desire. The youth is never inspired to make a stand to make a difference so I will speak for them. Are you willing to risk your child’s future due to your own bigotry? The choice is yours but your child will not stand for the hate. This generation will be loved, nurtured, heard and understood,’ he said.

Some viewers appreciated the video and sided with him. ‘If you can’t comprehend what xxxtentacion meant with the look at me video maybe you’re just too stupid,’ said one.

‘He was simply trying to show how the next generation would be affected if race wars went on,’ another said.

XXXTentacion’s real name is Jahseh Onfrey. Earlier this week, he responded to domestic violence allegations in a series of profane-laced videos.

He was charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering. In the clips, the rapper denied the charges and accused critics of plotting against his success, and threatened to ‘f**k ya’ll little sisters in their throats’. 

‘They wanna crucify me, I ain’t having it, I’m not gonna be your f**king messiah,’ the rapper wrote in follow-up posts. ‘Y’all n****s bored.’

It’s unclear what the relationship was between the woman and XXXTentacion.

Nation Anthem protestor Marshawn Lynch to get new reality show on Facebook

Marshawn Lynch is a NFL player who plays for the Oakland Raiders. I reported back in August that at the Oakland Raiders’ pre-season opener in Arizona, Marshawn Lynch didn’t stand during the National Anthem. He sat on a cooler eating a banana.

From my post:

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.”

Facebook is rewarding him for his antics. Another show I won’t be watching.

From Seattle Times: Can’t get enough of Marshawn Lynch, the former Seattle Seahawks running back who now plays for some team in California? Well, you can soon watch him in a new reality show that will reportedly debut on Facebook’s recently launched Watch platformaccording to Reuters.

The news service reported that the social-media giant — which launched its new platform for U.S. users in August — is paying Time Warner’s Bleacher Report millions of dollars for the reality show featuring the Skittles-loving NFL player known as Beast Mode. The show, called “No Script,” consists of eight 10- to 15-minute mini-episodes featuring Lynch involved in various hijinks. The first episode will reportedly feature Lynch taking race-car driving lessons “until he ruins the tires of the car.”

Facebook’s purchase of the show, which will reportedly start streaming this month, underscores the intense battle among web-based media companies for original content and for viewers, Reuters reported.

“We think we have a big hit on our hands,” Rory Brown, president of Bleacher Report, told Reuters. “People are going to spend more time on Facebook because of it.”

George Clooney: “Houston is Syria post Hurricane Harvey”

george clooney

Riiiiight. Because Syrian refugees and victims of Hurricane Harvey have so much in common.

Bonus: Not only does Julianne Moore want “re-education for everyone,” she also wants to “eradicate all these borders.”

From Hollywood Reporter: As George Clooney joins efforts to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey, and Hurricane Irma rips through Florida, the Hollywood star on Sunday likened Americans left homeless by catastrophic weather events to Syrians caught up in their country’s civil war.

“It’s going to take a long time … and we’ll all have to be involved, because Houston is Syria,” the multihyphenate said during a press conference for his film Suburbicon, which is screening this week at the Toronto International Film Festival after bowing in Venice. “People in Houston are now refugees based on something that had nothing to do with them. They didn’t do anything. They’re now victims and they’re out of their homes and they will be suffering for a very long time,” he added.

Harvey slammed into Texas’ Gulf Coast on Aug. 25 as a Category 4 hurricane. It was soon downgraded to a tropical storm but lingered for days, dropping up to 50 inches of rain on Houston and the surrounding area before moving eastward to Louisiana.

“We’re going to have to find ways to get involved — that’s our jobs as citizens of the world,” said Clooney. The Hollywood star directed Paramount’s Suburbicon, which features Matt Damon and Julianne Moore as a couple in over their heads with a dastardly plan in a caustic satire penned by Joel and Ethan Coen, Clooney and Grant Heslov.

Moore, also in Toronto to help promote the film, said humanitarian crises like in Syria and hurricane-ravaged Texas and Florida remind Americans they need to come together to help one another. “This is happening everywhere, with people being forced out of their homes and their nations and are looking for places to go. The only way we can help each other is by eradicating all these borders and thinking globally,” said the actress.

Damon said Suburbicon, a drama about very flawed people making very bad choices in a seemingly idyllic 1950s community, also has resonance with the Trump era. “You never know when you’re making a movie. A lot of these current events, we couldn’t have predicted,” said the actor.

A movie inspired by the true-life story of African-Americans who were harassed by their white neighbors to get them to move out of their Levittown, Pa., community in the 1950s, Suburbicon will inevitably be overshadowed by recent events in Charlottesville, Va., Damon suggested.

“Everything was there, but the lid hadn’t been torn off yet. And it seems like this presidency has reinvigorated this certain element, and emboldened them to step out into the open,” the actor said of Donald Trump’s defiant comments about alt-right provocateurs in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy.

The U.S. president stirred controversy when he initially declined to single out the white supremacists and neo-Nazis whose demonstration against the removal of a Gen. Robert E. Lee statue had led to violence and the death of a counter-protester in Charlottesville.

Hillary Clinton blames election loss on white people

Hillary Clinton has been blaming everybody under the sun for her losing the 2016 presidential election: the Russians; “misogynists”; the Russians; former FBI director James Comey (who exonerated her two months before she was interviewed by the FBI); the Russians; the Democratic National Committee (who favored her by sabotaging her rival Bernie Sanders); the Russians; Bernie Sanders (who betrayed his naive, idealistic young supporters by immediately endorsing Hillary at the Democratic National Convention); the Russians; Facebook; the Russians colluding with Bernie . . . .

Now, Hillary Clinton actually goes there — the racist card.

She’s identified her ultimate scapegoat.

White people!

Last Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, during an interview on “CBS Sunday Morning,” referring to Donald Trump, Hillary said (5:39 mark in the video below):

“He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others.”

Interviewer Jane Pauley said:

“What you’re saying is millions of white people.”

Hillary replied:

“Yeah. Millions of white people.

Hey, Hillary, you sore loser.

Aren’t you, your philanderer husband Bill, and your daughter Chelsea all Caucasians, i.e., WHITE people?

Al Sharpton’s daughter arrested after attacking a NYC cabbie

ashley and al sharpton

I’d say anger management classes should be on the agenda for this “committed activist.”

From Fox News: The Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter got an unexpected gift early Saturday at her birthday celebration — handcuffs for allegedly attacking a cab driver in New York City, according to reports.

Ashely Sharpton, 30, is accused of shoving and punching the cabbie after snatching his keys in midtown Manhattan just before 1 a.m., it was reported.

“She told me it didn’t happen the way they said it happened but I can’t speak for a 30-year-old woman,” the activist preacher told the New York Daily News. His daughter couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.

The trouble started when Sharpton and three pals hailed the cab. All jumped in and gave different destinations, confusing the cabbie who became annoyed and stopped the vehicle.

He told his passengers he wasn’t going anywhere until they figured out where they wanted to go, the paper reported. Cops said Sharpton, who was sitting next to the cabbie, then snatched the keys from the ignition and jumped out of the cab.

Things got physical when the cabbie got out and tried to grab the keys from Sharpton, telling her, “Give me my keys back,” cops told the New York Post. “I don’t have your keys,” she allegedly spat before later admitting she tossed them, the paper reported.

One of her pals might have given her an awful birthday present by filming the encounter, according to the paper. Cops said the footage shows Ashley Sharpton punching the driver in the chest.

By the time cops arrived she had vanished. Cops found her two hours later on a nearby street.

She was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date, the Post reported. She was charged with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

“Happy Birthday to my youngest, Ashley,” Sharpton tweeted Friday referring to his daughter. “A strong black woman and committed activist. So proud to be your Dad.”

Ashley Sharpton was one of 16 protesters arrested in January for blocking traffic outside Trump Tower to protest President Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch.

Prosecutors agreed in March to dismiss the arrest if she stayed out of trouble until Sept. 20, the New York Post reported at the time.

UPDATE (Sept. 12):

Here’s the video of Ashley Sharpton assaulting the cabbie (h/t CP):

Gee, I wonder why? 2017 NFL kickoff viewership down double-digits from 2016

cleveland browns

Keep taking a knee boys and watch your careers dive…

Good.

The NFL season opener was Thursday night. I did not watch and will not be watching anytime soon as I have no use for the SJWs and their message.

From Yahoo: The score between the winning Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots was settled on the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, last night and now the final viewership numbers are in too.

And NBC and the NFL might be feeling a lot like the defending Super Bowl champs: not so great.

With 21.8 million NFL fans tuning in, the kickoff of the 2017 regular season was down 13% for the NFL and NBC from last year’s opener. Not only does that represent a very real smack down for the league and the net coming off a previous season that saw double-digit declines in its early months, but it is the worst an opening game has done in over five-years.

In fact, this is the first time in five years that the kickoff game has fallen below 25 million viewers. And, while the most watched network show in three months, even with streaming and other NBC platforms bumping things up to 22.2 million, the game still fell short of the 25 million mark.

All of which means a lot more is now riding on Sunday Night Football’s NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys match-up on September 10. Because if those two mega-market teams can’t score ratingswise, the NFL has a real re-think on its agenda.

NFL player Michael Bennett claims racial profiling by LVPD…omits a few details from his story

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick.

I’ve told you about this NFL player before. He’s writing a book entitled, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable (due out next year) and he won’t stand for the national anthem until he “feels like everything is equal.”

This past Wednesday he went public with an incident he had with the Las Vegas Police Department in August. We know there are two sides to every story yet it’s quite interesting that Mr. Bennett omitted a couple important details from his story. Read on…

From MyNorthwest.com: Michael Bennett addressed reporters Wednesday afternoon, hours after he posted an open letter to Twitter detailing a disturbing encounter with Las Vegas police during which he was forcefully held to the ground and handcuffed by an officer.

(From Bennett’s Twitter post: ““A police officer ordered me to get on the ground,” Bennett wrote. “As I laid on the ground, complying with his commands to not move, he placed  his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would ‘blow my (expletive) head off’.”)

“A lot of people of color have dealt with this before,” Bennett said. “And I hate that it happened to me, but I’m lucky to be in the situation to have the platform to continuously speak on injustice.”

Bennett said he told his family, teammates and head coach Pete Carroll about the incident after it happened in late August. After seeking advice about how to handle it, Bennett ultimately decided to make a public statement.

“There’s a lot of people who experience what I experienced in that moment,” Bennett said. “And they’re not here to tell their story.

“It’s an emotional moment for me. I know a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did he want this on himself?’ I didn’t ask for this moment. It just happened to be me… any moment, I could have made the wrong decision. Whether move or (make the officer feel) like I was resisting or doing something wrong, and (the Seahawks) would be wearing… the patch with the No. 72 on it.”

A clearly emotional Bennett stood at the podium at Seahawks headquarters in Renton and fielded questions for nearly seven minutes before pausing during a question about his family.

The question was about a statement he made last year about being a black man in America – how even great accomplishments or fame cannot protect or make people of color immune from racism, racial profiling or police brutality.

“I try to tell my daughters every single day that they matter, and that…” Bennett said, before quietly walking out of the auditorium.

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who spoke to reporters shortly after Bennett’s exit, said Bennett’s own encounter is evidence in itself for the causes Bennett publicly supports — including his controversial decision to sit during the national anthem.

“Mike is literally sitting, taking a stand, doing everything he can to combat the same thing that he experienced,” Sherman said.

“And people are so worried about him sitting down during the national anthem that they completely miss that message a lot of the time. They want to be more angry at the action than the message. And that’s an unfortunate part of the world we live in nowadays. I wish that people would take it for what it is and make a difference.”


And what exactly did the Las Vegas Police Department have to stay about the incident that occurred in late August? From USA Today:

Las Vegas police said that there is no evidence to Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett’s accusation that he was racially profiled by the department during an incident outside a casino. 

Las Vegas Police Department undersheriff Kevin McMahill held a news conference Wednesday to respond to Bennett’s allegations, which he revealed earlier in the day.

“Many of the folks today have called this a incident of bias-based policing, police officers focusing solely on the race of an individual that they’re going to stop,” McMahill said. “I can tell you as I stand here today, I see no evidence of that. I see no evidence that race played any role in this incident.”

The officer who apprehended Bennett didn’t have his body camera on and it was not immediately clear why, McMahil lsaid. He added there are 126 videos from the officers that will be reviewed, and if those reveal that “any policies or training was violated, those officers will be held accountable.”

In a social media post, Bennett claimed he was singled out for “simply being a black man.” He added that “the officers’ excessive use of force was unbearable.”

Officers responded to reports of a possible active shooter in the casino around 1:30 on Aug. 27 after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.

While searching for an active shooter, an officer noticed Bennett crouched near a gaming machine. Two officers gave chase when the individual (later identified as Bennett) ran out of the casino and onto the strip. Both officers were armed with handguns, and the arresting officer did not turn on his body camera.

“You hear the officer approaching the door saying, ‘There he is.’ He gives chase, Mr. Bennett jumped over the wall, our officer jumped went over the wall immediately there after,” McMahill said. He said Bennett was detained for 10 minutes and released.

Bennett said he was not given “any justification” for his apprehension.


So Mr. Bennett is “crouching” during an active shooter situation? Understandable if he knew what was occurring. But if he didn’t know it might be an active shooter situation, then why is he crouching behind a gaming machine?

Even if Bennett didn’t know of the active shooter situation, why would he choose to run from a police officer? Guess it’s just one of those things that might make us white people uncomfortable.
