Liberal utopia of Portland, Oregon: Antifa thugs block traffic, hurl racial slurs & threaten violence at motorists

Video NSFW.

Mayor Ted Wheeler, you have a serious problem controlling your streets.

@MrAndyNgo posted this video on Twitter. From his tweets:

This is the type of street anarchy that routinely happens where I live. Here is video from 6 Oct showing Antifa directing traffic in downtown & threatening people who don’t obey with violence. Mayor @tedwheeler, who really runs this town?”

“And here is video of an elderly man who didn’t heed their street orders — so they chased him down. #Portland

Antifa thugs call a white motorist “whitey.”

They threaten violence at motorists.

Someone says a “little whitey” is in the KKK because he won’t listen to their illegal commands.

Antifa thug calls a guy with a license plate from North Carolina the KKK.

All this violence and Portland Police DO NOTHING.

Unbelievable that a progressive city would allow mob rule in their streets. /sarc

South Africa prelude to genocide: gun & land confiscation; racial quotas in new mining charter

All signs are pointing to a looming human rights crisis of white genocide in South Africa:

(1) Land Confiscation

In February 2018, South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa made land expropriation a key pillar of his policy platform after taking over from ousted PM Jacob Zuma.

This was followed by the South African parliament’s passage, by an overwhelming majority of 241 to 83 votes, of a motion to begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.

The motion was brought by Julius Malema, leader of the far-left Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters political party, and supported by the ruling African National Congress. (News.com.au)

(2) Call for White Genocide

In June 2018, Julius Malema made a barely-concealed threat of white genocide in an interview with TRT World News.

He said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.” When the reporter mentioned that some people might view his remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” then warned white South Africans that the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy.”

H/t TrailDust’s “White Genocide Looming in South Africa“.

(3) Gun Confiscation

On June 7, 2018, South Africa’s Constitutional Court unanimously ruled that sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act (2000) are constitutional. Sections 24 and 28 require firearm owners to renew their licenses every five years; failure to do so meant an owner is in the illegal possession of a firearm, which is punishable by 15 years in prison. (Daily Maverick)

A year ago, on July 4, 2017, the North Gauteng High Court had declared sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act unconstitutional. Before the Firearms Control Act of 2000‚ a license to possess a firearm lasted for life. (Times Live)

Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a license must do so 90 days before its expiry date. Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm license has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame is placed on its disposal, which is to be done through a dealer.

The Constitutional Court’s ruling means that South African gun owners who fail to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then presumably destroy them.

José Niño of Gunpowder Magazine rightly observes:

The history of gun confiscation is one of repeated cases of tyranny.

From countries such as Cuba to the Soviet Union, aspiring demagogues have used gun confiscation to disarm the populace. Logically, an unarmed populace will put up little resistance against their tyrannical acts.

(4) New Mining Charter

The economy of South Africa is the second largest (after Nigeria) and one of the most industrialized in Africa, due in large part to mining. Though mining’s contribution to the national GDP has fallen from 21% in 1970 to 6% in post-apartheid 2011, it still represents almost 60% of the country’s exports.

But the South African government is radically revising its Mining Charter, which will be published this November. (Reuters)

The new Mining Charter will require racial quotas in the form of minimum percentages of Black ownership of shares, Black supply of mining goods, and Black employees.

As described by Chris of www.CapitalistExploits.at (via ZeroHedge), Aug. 24, 2018, the changes to the Mining Charter include:

Ownership

  • A new mining right must have a minimum of 30% Black Persons’ shareholding, with the 30% shareholding to be apportioned between employees, communities and entrepreneurs in a specific manner.
  • A minimum 8% shareholding is allocated to mine communities, to be held through a trust.
  • A minimum 14% shareholding must be to black entrepreneurs.

Annual Turnover

  • Holder of a mining rights must pay 1% of its annual turnover to the 30% black persons’ shareholding prior to, and over and above any distributions made by a Holder to its shareholders. This 1% payment is always subject to the solvency and liquidity test as provided for in the Companies Act but is not negotiable under any other terms.

Procurement

  • The Charter requires 70% procurement of mining goods and 80% procurement of services from BEE entities (Black empowered entities); it also requires that analysis of 100% of mineral samples be done by South African based companies. This is mandatory and in place no matter how incompetent or expensive these protected companies services may be.

Employment Equity

  • At board level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black.
  • At executive/top management level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black
  • At senior management level, a minimum of 60% black representation, 30% of which must be both female and black
  • At middle management level, a minimum of 75% black representation, 38% of which must be both female and black
  • At junior management level, a minimum of 88% black representation, 44% of which must be both female and black

Human Resource Development

  • A holder must invest 5% of the leviable amount on essential skills development.

Chris predicts:

This mining charter will eventually lead to South Africa becoming a mining backwater, a shadow of its former glory.

Even the average village idiot could tell you that the South African mining industry is going to follow a slow and painful decline with the “irony” that the very people that the mining charter is purportedly going to “empower” will be those worst affected, along with all the businesses surrounding this industry and, in turn, those businesses surrounding the mining service businesses. In short, the whole of South Africa.

Turncoat Omarosa wears necklace with girl-lover pedophile pendant

The FBI publication of January 31, 2007, (U) Symbols and Logos Used by Pedophiles to Identify Sexual Preferences, states:

Pedophiles…are using various types of identification logos or symbols to recognize one another and distinguish their sexual preferences…. These symbols have been etched into rings and formed into pendants, and have also been found imprinted on coins….

Pedophilia symbols on jewelry, coins, Web sites and other effects are indicative of advertisement methods used by child sexual predators to promote their cause. Pedophile activists advocate for the social acceptance of sexual relationships between adults and children. These organizations seek to decriminalize sexual relationships between adults and children and to legalize child pornography based on their belief that children have the ability to consent to sexual acts.

Below are the symbols for “girl lover” pedophiles, according to the FBI — “a small heart surrounded by a larger heart, which symbolizes a relationship between an adult male or female and a minor girl.”


Omarosa Newman, 44, known as Omarosa, is the fame-hungry woman who became a “celebrity” as a contestant on the first season of Donald Trump NBC’s reality television series The Apprentice in 2004.

In the 1990s, Omarosa had worked in the Clinton administration, first in the office of Vice President Al Gore, then transferred to the Commerce Department.  Gore’s former office administrator, Mary Margaret Overbey, said Omarosa “was the worst hire we ever made”; Cheryl Shavers, who was the Commerce Department’s Undersecretary for Technology Administration, said Omarosa was “unqualified and disruptive” and that “I had her removed.” (Wikipedia)

Despite her shoddy work history in Washington, DC, Trump brought Omarosa to work for him, first as Director of African-American Outreach in his 2016 presidential campaign, then into the White House as Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison. She lasted a year, from January until December 13, 2017, when she resigned, although CNN reported that she had been fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. The U.S. Secret Service did not deny reports that Omarosa had been forcibly removed from the White House grounds on December 12.

Beginning in February 2018, Omarosa publicly turned against President Trump, culminating in the publication of her book, Unhinged, on August 14, 2018, in which she calls Trump a “racist” and claims that there are tapes of Trump using the “n-word” during the filming of The Apprentice.

I have observed before that the most virulent anti-Trumpers seem to have terrible personal secrets that, if uncovered, can ruin them.

So it is with Omarosa Newman.

Remember the pedophile symbol for girl “lover”?

Below are pics of Omarosa with actor Michael Clarke Duncan, showing her wearing a necklace with the girllover pendant:

Below are side-by-side pics of the FBI’s girllover pedophile pendant and Omarosa’s pendant:

Omarosa began dating Michael Clarke Duncan in August 2010, and became his fiancee. In April 2012, Duncan changed his will to make Omarosa his main beneficiary. In July 2012, Omarosa found Duncan in cardiac arrest and resuscitated him with CPR. But Duncan never fully recovered from the heart attack and died on September 3, 2012, after two months in hospital.

Duncan’s family believe that Omarosa had unduly influenced Duncan into re-writing his will months before he died and leaving almost everything to her — reportedly, $100,000. They say Duncan was not of sound mind when he made the changes because as early as December 2011, the actor was not himself, slurring words and stumbling around. (TMZ)

Update (Sept. 10, 2018)

According to a Crazy Days and Nights blind item reveal, Omarosa murdered Clarke:

You know a death we don’t talk about much is the death of this Academy Award winning/nominated B list actor who was killed by his celebrity girlfriend. Oh, sure, she was not charged, but those closest to him know she was poisoning him and gaslighting him to the point he had no idea what was going on and made a will naming her as the sole beneficiary. Previously his family members had been named. Our celebrity also took out millions of dollars of life insurance policies on him and raided his bank accounts. When she cleared out everything she could while he was living, she upped the dose of what she had been giving him and he died. Then she cashed in on everything and moved on to the next victim.

This is rich: NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment launches “Erase the Hate” campaign

This is a repost of my August 2018 original blog post which was removed when WordPress shut us down.

Excuse me if I don’t take them seriously.  The TDS that comes out of Hollyweird is all about hate. The TDS that permeates in the media is all about hate.

 

The disdain for white people and their “privilege” permeates education and academics.

 

The violence and hate from Antifa is witnessed at many college campuses and rallies.

The only “hate” progressives like to “call out” is conservative voices.

Fun Fact: In 2017 Princess Nokia (the woman singing in the video) assaulted a white male in her audience at a charity event in England. She then bragged about. From DailyWire:

“Princess Nokia claims the man was heckling her, but the man says he was targeted when he cheered her on by referring to her as “Abigail,” which is what he was told was her first name. It isn’t, and this monumental slip-up apparently triggered the New York rapper to throw drinks at the man and beat the hell out of him.

After striking the man three times, the rapper went back on stage to brag about assaulting the “white boy.” That is, after she threw another drink in the general direction of the audience. “That’s what you do when a white boy disrespects you,” bragged the female rapper.”

Smart move in picking the polite Princess Nokia for this campaign, NBC. Real smart move.

From Hollywood Reporter: The time has come to “Erase the Hate,” according to NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, who has partnered with hip-hop artist Timbaland and rapper Princess Nokia for their social impact campaign that launched Thursday. The release of the “Erase the Hate” campaign video coincides with the one-year anniversary of the Unite the Right march and subsequent riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In the video for the campaign’s official anthem, the artists call for change and urge communities to “join hands together and erase the hate.”

“Now is the time. A time for a change. The start of a chapter. The turn of a page,” said Princess Nokia. The rapper also takes a jab at a congressman, as she explains that the country needs “leaders who speak to youth” and bring equality.

In a behind-the-scenes video about making the anthem, the musicians say that joining forces on the song was a perfect fit. “I wanted to join this campaign more than anything simply because I have always revolved my life, revolved my music, revolved my passions around dismantling hate,” notes Princess Nokia. “I’m a champion of love. I’ve always been a champion of love.”

“Music is the most powerful tool to cure any negativity in the world,” says Timbaland. “Being a part of this campaign is perfect for me.”

Last October, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer announced the relaunch of the company’s Emmy-winning “Erase the Hate” campaign across the collection of cable networks, which includes USA, Syfy, Bravo and E!

“When we launched Erase the Hate over 20 years ago, it was truly inspiring to see so many people rally around the call for inclusion over prejudice. We’ve dedicated a lot of thought for a very long time reimagining this campaign for today’s digitally connected world because sadly, this work feels more urgent now than ever before,” Hammer said in a statement, adding: “I’ve always believed people aren’t born knowing how to hate; they are taught to hate. It’s time to channel our energy into doing what we can to break this destructive cycle.”

“Silence equals complicity. Hate and bias must be called out wherever and whenever we see it. We all have a part to play. Fighting hate means using the positions and platforms we have to make the difference we can,” said Hammer. “I’m incredibly grateful to Timbaland and Princess Nokia for joining us to deliver Erase the Hate’s message of equality.”

Harlem diner to white-hater professor: Get your burgers elsewhere!

Remember James Livingston, the Rutgers University history professor who went into a racist rant (since deleted) on Facebook about “little Caucasian assholes” eating at his favorite burger place, Harlem Shake in NYC?

Now, in a refreshing display of a genuine commitment to color-blind diversity, the owners of the Harlem restaurant — a white woman and a black woman — are speaking out, denouncing Livingston’s racism.
In a statement provided to TheBlaze, Jelena Pasic and Dardra Coaxum condemned Livingston’s racist remarks and told him to get his burgers elsewhere:

“For five years and counting, we built our business on a prerogative [of] cherishing diversity within our ownership, staff and customers in our beloved Harlem COMMUNITY. We refuse to be sucked into your racist rants, so if you wish to name drop, please use names of those with similar views. We ask that our name is removed from your rant because we do not want to have anything to do with you. And yeah, we ask that you get your burgers somewhere else. We do not tolerate ‘racism’ either. We thrive on equality and fairness and have full intentions to keep it that way!”

The two women reinforced their message in an Instagram post on June 5, that Harlem Shake is proud of its “diverse ownership, staff and most importantly, customers”:

I had emailed Rutgers University’s president, Dr. Michael Meager, about Livingston and received this reply on June 6:

Dear Professor ____,
Thank you for your recent e-mail message to the President’s Office.
There is no place for racial intolerance at Rutgers. This matter has been referred to the appropriate leaders at the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus, where Dr. Livingston teaches, to determine whether his comments violate university policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment.
You have my best wishes.
Sincerely,
Michael Meagher
Office of the President

According to My Central Jersey on June 6:

Rutgers is investigating the Facebook post and whether Livingston broke university discrimination and harassment policies. In a statement from the Rutgers University Media Relations department, officials said, “There is no place for racial intolerance at Rutgers. This matter has been referred to the appropriate leaders at the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus, where Dr. Livingston teaches, to determine whether his comments violate university policies prohibiting discrimination and harassment.”

Harlem Shake‘s address is 100 W. 124th St., corner of Lenox Ave., New York, NY; phone no. (212) 222-8300. If you’re in NYC, go get a burger there! To leave a rating on Yelp for Harlem Shake, go here.

Fake Hate Crime: Black man scrawled 'KKK' graffiti at Eastern Michigan U.

Mon, 04 Jun 2018 11:13:00 +0000

eowyn2

In 2016 and 2017, racist graffiti targeting black people were spray-painted on the walls of Eastern Michigan University (EMU).

It turns out that the graffiti weren’t the malicious acts of “white supremacists,” but of a black former student, Eddie Curlin, 29.

Eddie Curlin

On May 21, 2018, Washtenaw County Trial Judge David Swartz ordered Eddie Curlin to pay more than $2,000 to EMU on three counts of malicious destruction of a building, and to serve 2 to 5 years in prison on four unrelated counts of identity theft.

On April 23, Curlin had pleaded guilty to the identity theft counts as well as the graffiti counts, including:

  1. In September 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s King Hall the hate messages “KKK” (referencing the Ku Klux Klan) in red, white, and blue, and below that, in bold black letters “leave niggers”.
  2. In October 2016, spray painting on an exterior wall of EMU’s Ford Hall, right next to a monument to Dr. Martin Luther King, the hate message: “leave niggers”.
  3. In Spring 2017, spray painting a racist message in a men’s restroom stall in EMU’s Sherzer Hall.

Curlin attended EMU from 2014 to early 2016.

University officials say Curlin vandalized the buildings then acted as a police informant. Police believe he was motivated by hopes of acting as an informant in the case in order that previous criminal charges against him would be dropped and he would be allowed to return as a student to EMU.

After he was unmasked as the author of the racist graffiti, Curlin publicly admitted his guilt. He said at a news conference last year: “It was totally self-serving. It was not driven by politics. It was not driven by race.”

Liberal Insanity: Square dancing is racist

Tue, 29 May 2018 11:06:30 +0000

eowyn2

Before you read further, allow me to first ask you this question:

In school, were you required to attend a square dancing class?

A website called Quartz describes itself as a digital news outlet “for business people in the new global economy”. Founded in 2012, Quartz compares itself to a contemporary version of Wired of the 1990s and The Economist of the 1840s, publishing “bracingly creative and intelligent journalism with a broad worldview, built primarily for the devices closest at hand: tablets and mobile phones.”

Quartz claims a founding team of “veterans of some of the world’s highest-quality news organizations who have reported in 115 countries and speak 19 languages. Our main office is in New York City, and we have correspondents and staff reporters in London, Paris, Indonesia, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.”

Source of pic: Facebook

A December 12, 2017 Quartz op/ed, penned by Robyn Pennacchia — a Chicago-based freelancer who “regularly” writes for Friendly Atheist — calls square dancing white-racist:

[T]here’s an unusual reason why so many American students spend their formative years learning to do-si-do. Twenty-eight out of 50 states have declared square dancing their official dance. This is part of a coordinated campaign—a dancespiracy, if you will—to make square dancing the official dance of the United States, in the hope that doing so “would give square dancing and its related activities more visibility and have a positive effect on recruiting new dancers.”

But the institutionalization of square dancing isn’t just about the joy of dance. It’s also about America’s legacy of racism and anti-Semitism—and the surprising tools that get used in the effort to uphold whiteness.

Pennacchia then goes into a rant about Henry Ford — how he was racist against Jews and blacks, and that Ford promoted square dancing to supplant jazz because he saw square dancing as “intrinsically white, and thus more intrinsically wholesome.”

Pennacchia concludes:

As innocuous as state-sponsored square dancing may seem, it’s just one of the many small ways that oppression has shaped the history and culture of the US. If Henry Ford hadn’t been a racist and anti-Semite who believed jazz would be the ruin of our country, square dancing would probably not be a state dance anywhere. And you almost definitely would not have had to do it in gym class.

For the Left, multiculturalism — the celebration of the cultures of non-white races and ethnicities — is cool and must be actively promoted by government, schools and media. But woe be it if white people claim an ethnic identity and solidarity, or engage in “white” cultural practices.

Racism: Sen. Chuck Schumer won't vote for judge because he's white

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 16:43:27 +0000

eowyn2

On February 28, 2018, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he would not vote for Trump judicial nominee Marvin Quattlebaum because he’s a white male. 

Schumer fumed:

“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary. Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American. As of February 14th, 83% of President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92% were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades. It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.

To begin, Sen. Schumer is in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, sex, or ethnic origin.

As for Schumer’s contention that those in government must “look a lot more like the America it represents,” then he should begin by looking into a mirror:

  • According to Wikipedia, Jews make up 1.7% to 2.6% of the U.S. population, numbering 5.5 to 8 million.
  • Compared to their percentage in the U.S. population, however, Jews are way over-represented in government:
    • Jews make up 33.33% (or 3 of 9) of the U.S. Supreme Court — Stephen Bryer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan. (Source: Jewish Virtual Library)
    • Jews make up 5.6% (or 30) of the 115th Congress: 5.1% (or 22 representatives) of the House; 8% (or 8 senators) of the Senate. (Pew Research Center)

Given the over-representation of Jews in the Senate, and since Chuck Schumer is Jewish, I urge him to resign in the interest of making the Senate “look a lot more like the America it represents”.

Arthur Marvin Quattlebaum Jr., 53, received his J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law. He was the president of the South Carolina Bar from 2011 to 2012, and is a partner at the office of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, LLP.

On August 3, 2017, President Trump nominated Quattlebaum to serve as a U.S. District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina. On March 1, 2018, the Senate voted 69-28 to confirm his nomination.

Maxine Waters says Trump's speeches should come with parental advisory warnings


Crazy talk.
From Daily Mail: Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters  says President Donald Trump‘s public remarks should come with a parental advisory.
Waters called Trump a ‘racist’ and said he is a ‘terrible role model for our children’ in a response to Trump’s State of the Union address that aired during a BET special on Wednesday evening. ‘Whenever he appears on TV there should be a disclaimer that says “This may be may not be acceptable for children,” ‘ she said.
A vocal opponent of Trump’s in Congress, Waters called for his impeachment last month after he was accused of calling Haiti and African nations ‘s**hole countries’ in a conversation on immigration.
Hounding him on Wednesday for the comment Trump says he did not make, Waters said his ‘vulgarity and his disrespect for women and people of color’ warrants a disclaimer.
At a luncheon with network anchors on Tuesday afternoon Trump mused that he wants to unify the country. ‘I want to see our country united. I want to bring our country back from a tremendous divisiveness,’ he said, ‘which has taken place not just over one year, over many years, including the Bush years, not just Obama.’
The annual event preceded the president’s State of the Union address, which the White House said would be bipartisan in tone.
A line on immigration reform and Trump’s desire to restrict migration to nuclear families had Democrats hissing, though.
Democrats were also chagrined about a reference Trump made to MS-13 and the gang’s recruitment tactics. They accused Trump of falsely equating vicious murders with Dreamers, the illegal immigrant youth who came to the United States as children.
Waters said ‘it’s impossible to believe’ Trump when ‘he tries to declare that he wants to bring the country together’ because he has ‘divided the country in ways that no other modern president has done.’
‘One speech cannot and does not make Donald Trump presidential. He’s not presidential and he never will be presidential. He claims that he’s bringing people together but make no mistake, he is a dangerous, unprincipled, divisive, and shameful racist,’ she said.
Waters said her remarks are not just a response to Trump’s address, ‘They are a warning to the American people – a warning that this president does not deserve to represent us, and that he’s taken America down the road to isolation and division.’
Acknowledging her impeachment call, a year into Trump’s four years in office, she said, ‘The time is now. We must organize, challenge and resist.’

It must be racism! Walmart puts Tide Pods in locked cabinets

Walmart is being sued by a woman who claims racism because some Walmart stores have “beauty products” for black people, like hair dye, under lock and key.

See DCG’s post “Woman sues Walmart for “segregated” beauty products“.

The reason why stores keep certain items in locked cabinets is not because of racism, but because the items are most targeted by thieves. As an example, a CVS drug store in my neighborhood now keeps electric toothbrushes and replacement brushes in a locked cabinet.
Another reason is safety.

ABC12 WJRT reports, Jan. 31, 2018, that some Walmart stores, like those in Californian cities Modesto and Stockton, are locking up Tide Laundry Pods because more and more people have been stealing them.
Walmart spokesperson Charles Crowson gave this statement:

“No retailer is immune to the challenge of crime and Walmart is no exception. The decision about which items are subject to additional in-store security is made on data gathered at the store level and often at the discretion of the store manager.”

While Walmart would not say if the moronic Tide Pod “ForbiddenFruit” Challenge affected the decision to lock up the pods, some believe the viral trend may have had an impact.
The Tide Pod challenge is a new fad that dares people to bite into the soap pod on camera. According to the Poison Control Center, in the month of January, more than 130 teenagers have purposefully bitten into the pods compared with just 53 people last year. Dr. Mai Le with Dignity Health Medical Group in Stockton, warns that ingesting the detergent pods is very dangerous, and can lead to pulmonary edema and death.
Here’s a video on what happened to a boy who popped 3 Tide Pods into his mouth:

Poison Control says if you accidentally or intentionally ingest the pods, call their hotline number right away at 1-800-222-1222 or text POISON to 79797.
