CNN’s April Ryan says Melania Trump is not “culturally American”

This is CNN: Racist reporter April Ryan

From Fox News: Critics are slamming CNN contributor April Ryan for suggesting that First Lady Melania Trump is “not culturally American” when discussing the “Be Best” campaign to combat cyberbullying on Monday night.

This is a first lady who is not culturally American, but she is learning the ways and this is not just an American issue. These are not just American issues,” Ryan told “OutFront” host Erin Burnett. “These are international issues. Cyberbullying is an international issue. Social media is international and also the opioid addiction issue, so it’s not just here, but it’s abroad as well.”

CNN did not respond to a request for clarification.

The first lady was born in Slovenia but has been an American citizen since 2006 and has lived in the country since 1996.

NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that “Ryan showing that she’s anything but a journalist” and is more of a liberal advocate. Her comments are absurd considering how long the first lady has lived in this country,” Houck said. “Regardless of one’s views of the president, the first lady is an example of ‘Only in America’ could this be possible.”

This isn’t the first time Ryan has caused a stir and Houck said her “comments about the president and behavior in the briefing room show Trump Derangement Syndrome in full force.”

Conservative commentator Carmine Sabia told Fox News that he remembers “when people were called racist” for saying the same thing about President Barack Obama. “I also remember people like April Ryan saying that we are a nation of immigrants. This is racism and reprehensible and she should be ashamed,” Sabia said.

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck agrees and took to Twitter to blast Ryan for the comment.

“April Ryan – I know when some said that Obama wasn’t fully ‘culturally American’ reporters cried racism. Now that you, a reporter, are saying the same, can they cry racism? Or do you just hate foreigners? Wow, this is easy, I see why the left likes it,” Beck wrote.

White House Director of Strategic Response Steven Cheung wrote, “What does that even mean? On a day when Mrs. Trump unveiled a very important initiative #BeBest, reporters can’t bring themselves to talk about anything but rumors and innuendo.”

Ryan twisted Sarah Sanders’ words on Thursday night in order to make the absurd suggestion that the White House press secretary is looking for a physical confrontation with the star reporter.

After Ryan asked a combative question during Thursday’s press briefing, accusing Sanders of being “blindsided” by comments Rudy Giuliani recently made on Fox News, Sanders told Ryan, “Well, with all due respect, you actually don’t know much about me in terms of what I feel and what I don’t.”

Ryan misquoted Sanders while speaking to CNN colleague Don Lemon on-air afterwards, claiming the press secretary said, “You don’t know me,” before declaring the phrase to be fighting words.

“For Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the presidential spokesperson, the mouthpiece for the President of the United States, to say, ‘You don’t know me,’ in certain quarters in this nation, that starts a physical fight,” Ryan said. “I was very shocked. It was street. I will even go beyond that, it was gutter.”

Ryan also famously accused Sanders of lying about whether or not she baked a pie for Thanksgiving.

Michael Brown’s mom considering a run for Ferguson city council

lezley mcspadden

No doubt this would create an even tighter bond between city residents and police…

From STL Today: Lezley McSpadden says she is considering a run for a City Council seat in Ferguson, the city where her son Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer.

McSpadden was among four people who took part in a panel discussion about issues raised by Brown’s death on Monday night at Harvard University.

She was prompted to mention her potential candidacy by Benjamin Crump, another panelist who is an attorney for the family. Crump urged McSpadden to discuss what she was considering.

“What I’m contemplating is running for City Council of Ferguson,” she said, drawing applause and a call of “Run, Lezley, Run” from the audience of several dozen.

“There are several people back home that are willing to help me get that going and make sure that I’m treated right,” McSpadden said.

Crump chimed in with encouragement. “What a legacy that would be — elected to the City Council and supervising the same police department that killed Michael Brown,” he said.

Earth Day founder Ira Einhorn murdered his girlfriend and hid her body in a trunk

Did you know that the inventor of Kwanzaa — the wholly fictitious African-American holiday observed from December 26 to January 1, all the better to co-opt the West’s traditional holidays of Christmas and New Year — is a Black nationalist with an extensive criminal history, including conviction for torturing women?

And did you know that despite his criminal history, Maulana Karenga (birth name Ronald Everett) is now a professor and chair of the Department of Africana Studies at California State University, Long Beach?

See “Inventor of Kwanzaa, now chair of African studies at Calif. university, is a convicted felon who tortured women

Even worse, another liberal icon, who claims to have founded Earth Day, actually killed a woman and hid her rotting corpse in a steam trunk in his apartment.

Ira Einhorn, founder of Earth Day

Begun in 1970, Earth Day is an annual global event celebrated on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

Environmental activist Ira Einhorn claims to be a founder of Earth Day and participated in the first Earth Day event in 1970 in Philadelphia, although his role is disputed by other event organizers.

Born into a middle-class Jewish family in Philadelphia, Einhorn called himself The Unicorn (the German word for unicorn is einhorn) and was something of a hippie guru in the 1970s. Socialites were drawn to him, including Helen “Holly” Maddux, a graduate of Bryn Mawr College from Tyler, Texas, known to have a “rebellious fascination with the exotic Jewish male”. (Wikipedia)

Einhorn had a 5-year live-in relationship with Maddux. In 1977, Maddux broke up with Einhorn, went to New York City and became involved with Saul Lapidus. On Sept. 9, 1977, Maddux returned to the Philadelphia apartment she had once shared with Einhorn to collect her things after Einhorn threatened to throw out her belongings into the street. She was never seen again. Later, a student in the apartment below told of hearing a “blood-curdling scream” that night.

Several weeks later, the Philadelphia police questioned Einhorn about her disappearance. He claimed that Maddux had gone out to the neighborhood co-op to buy tofu and sprouts, and never returned.

Weeks later, the same student who had heard a scream complained about a disgusting substance dripping from the apartment above. But Einhorn refused to let the landlord, a plumber or anyone in, until homicide detector Michael Chitwood came with a search warrant.

Chitwood noticed “a faint decaying smell, like a dead animal”. He pried open a padlocked closet down the hall and found Holly’s mummified remains in a steamer trunk.

Helen “Holly” Maddux

A coroner determined Holly had died from “cranio-cerebral injuries to the brain and skull [with] at least 10 or 12 fractures”. The final blow was so severe that pieces of her skull were embedded in her brain. But she was still alive when Einhorn crammed her into the trunk.

Einhorn was bailed out by Phyllis Lambert, a prominent member of the Bronfman “Seagram” family and one of the many people Einhorn had convinced to support him financially.

Note: Bronfman heiresses seem to be suckers for con men. Sara and Clare Bronfman have plowed millions of dollars into Keith Raniere’s sex-slave cult NXIVM.

In 1981, just days before his murder trial was to begin, Einhorn skipped bail and fled to Europe. He traveled in Europe for the next 17 years and married a wealthy Swedish woman named Annika Flodin. The two settled down in a 5-acre property in Champagne-Mouton, France.

Back in Pennsylvania, Einhorn was convicted of murder in absentia and sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

In 1997, French police arrested Einhorn; he had been living under the name Eugène Mallon. His attorneys fought extradiction for 4 years.

On July 20, 2001, Einhorn was extradicted back to America with guarantees of a new trial and being spared the death penalty. Now 77 years old, Einhorn is in SCI Laurel Highlands, a minimum security prison for senior-citizen inmates and those with health needs. He continues to insist he’d been framed by the CIA because of his environmental activism.

Drama queen: Kaepernick receives Amnesty International award and decries “lawful lynchings” in the US

Colin Kaepernick

Oh, the personal “sacrifice” of the warrior Kaepernick…

Hyperbole like this will ensure he remains an unemployed NFL player.

From Daily Mail: Amnesty International gave former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday for his kneeling protest of racial injustice. 

Onetime San Francisco 49ers teammate Eric Reid presented Kaepernick with the award during a ceremony in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands.

In his acceptance speech, the award-winner described police killings of African Americans and Latinos in the United States as lawful lynchings.

‘Racialized oppression and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation – the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynching of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex,’ Kaepernick said.

Kaepernick first took a knee during the pre-game playing of the American national anthem when he was with the 49ers in 2016 to protest police brutality.

‘How can you stand for the national anthem of a nation that preaches and propagates, ‘freedom and justice for all,’ that is so unjust to so many of the people living there?’ he said at Saturday’s award ceremony.

Other players joined his protest in the 2016 season, drawing the ire of President Donald Trump, who called for team owners to fire such players.

In response to the player demonstrations, the NFL agreed to commit $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in a plan.

Kaepernick wasn’t signed for the 2017 season following his release in San Francisco.

Reid, a safety who is now a free agent, continued Kaepernick’s protests by kneeling during the anthem last season. Reid has said he will take a different approach in 2018.

Kaepernick paid tribute to his friend for his own role in the protest movement. ‘Eric introducing me for this prestigious award brings me great joy,’ Kaepernick said. ‘But I am also pained by the fact that his taking a knee, and demonstrating courage to protect the rights of black and brown people in America, has also led to his ostracization from the NFL when he is widely recognized as one of the best competitors in the game and in the prime of his career.’

Amnesty hands its award each year to a person or organization, ‘dedicated to fighting injustice and using their talents to inspire others.’

Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty called Kaepernick ‘an athlete who is now widely recognized for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination.’

Previous recipients of the award include anti-Apartheid campaigner and South African President Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who campaigned for girls’ right to education even after surviving being shot by Taliban militants.

‘In truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force,’ Kaepernick said.

Charlize Theron has considered leaving the US for the safety of her children

charlize theron and michelle obama

Well, then take them back to your home country of South Africa girl. Because we all know THAT place is completely free of racism.

From Hollywood Reporter: Charlize Theron is no stranger to racial inequality. “Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyper-aware of equality and human rights,”the Tully star shares in an interview with Chelsea Handler for the May cover of Elle.

Throughout the interview, the actress discusses how she navigates the current political climate as the mother of two black children — Jackson, six, and August, two — that she adopted and co-parents with her mother. “I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought,” she said. “We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal.”

Theron explains that she has considered leaving the United States for the safety of her children. “There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic,” she says. “There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, if this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.”

She adds that she wants her kids to be proud of their background. “I want them to know who they are, and I want them to be so f*cking proud of who they are. Building confidence for them right now is an oath I made to myself when I brought them home,” she says. “They need to know where they come from and be proud of that. But they’re going to have to know that it’s a different climate for them than it is for me, and how unfair that is. If I can do something about that, of course I’m going to.”

Kneeler Kaepernick still out of a job; Seattle Seahawks cancel meeting with him

Colin Kaepernick

Oh, the personal “sacrifice” of the warrior Kaepernick…

More time for him to focus on his social justice warrior career.

Apparently kneeler and cop hater Kaepernick was suppose to train with the Seattle Seahawks this week. But the Seahawks have pulled the plug on that due to Kaepernick’s social justice stunts.

USA Today reports that the NFL team postponed the meeting after Kaepernick would not say if he would stop kneeling during the national anthem. From their report:

The Seahawks have not decided when or whether to reschedule the meeting with Kaepernick, according to Schefter.

Kaepernick, 30, has remained a free agent since last offseason. He first began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 as a form of protest against police brutality and racial inequality.

Last October, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, alleging that he had been denied employment as a result of his stance.”

Well Kap, your “stance” HAS ruined the NFL. No wonder no one wants the PR nightmare that you will bring to any team.
