Way to Go: BLM Idiots Vandalize Statue of a Former Slave Outside Black Church in Indiana

July 9, 2020

Idiotic Black Lives Matter supporters have vandalized a statue of a slave fleeing with her infant daughter outside a black church in New Albany.

The faces on the statue were painted red, similar to what we have seen done to statues of Confederate generals and Christopher Columbus, and tagged with “BLM.” Ironically though, the statue at the nearly 170-year-old Second Baptist Church is of former slave Lucy Higgs Nichols, escaping slavery with her baby.

The church was known for helping slaves who were fleeing during the civil war. Higgs Nichols went on to become a nurse in the Union Army.

The church is now putting up security cameras to keep an eye on the statues and the church itself. A GoFundMe campaign to help has raised nearly $5,000.

“All community donations, just people saying, ‘I want to help,‘” Friends of the Town Clock Church Treasurer Jerry Finn explained to WAVE 3 News. “What it will allow us to do is put cameras in place to monitor the gardens and the church as well.”

White woman who attacked police officers with firebomb blamed ‘black man’ for giving her the materials until her white accomplice confessed

https://atlantablackstar.com/2020/07/08/white-woman-who-attacked-police-officers-with-firebomb-blamed-black-man-for-giving-her-the-materials-until-her-white-accomplice-confessed/

White Woman Who Attacked Police Officers with Firebomb Blamed ‘Black Man’ for Giving Her the Materials Until Her White Accomplice Confessed

By Niara Savage

July 8, 2020

Samantha Shader, a 27-year-old white woman, was arrested on charges of throwing Molotov cocktails at an NYPD vehicle occupied by four officers at a protest following the death of George Floyd in late May. She faces charges including use of explosives to commit a felony, arson, and use of a destructive device.

Shader’s actions were caught on tape and she admitted to throwing the makeshift explosive but claimed three “Black” strangers had approached her on the street and given her the bottle. But this past Friday, July 3, police arrested a white man who admitted to federal authorities he’d given Shader the materials for the firebomb. Timothy Amerman, a 29-year-old painter, now faces up to 10 years of prison time if he is convicted on charges of civil disorder or civil disorder conspiracy.

Although Shader’s story about a group of Black people giving her the Molotov cocktail gear is false, her account of the encounter is fairly detailed. She said the man who gave her the bottle was a “thicker guy’ with his hair in “skinny dreads,” of different colors. She said the second man was wearing a hat and that the woman who was with them had “poofy” hair. Shader says she felt important at the time because she was the only white person around, and took the bottle.

No one in the police vehicle Shader targeted was injured, and the officers escaped the van to apprehend her. Prosecutors say Shader bit an officer’s leg as they took her into custody.

Upon searching Shader’s vehicle, police found a note with Amerman’s fingerprints on it that said: “I found a few more glass bottles than I thought I had, though still not many. I’m giving you my mask in hopes that helps. Wish I had more. There’s also a bag in here for you. BE SAFE Please. Really Good Luck, – Love Tim.”

Amerman told police he gave Shader “projectiles to throw at police and counter-protesters.”

According to federal agencies, the accomplices regularly post anti-police memes on Facebook. Shader posted that “Black people should be allowed to burn down the country thew built for free, and Amerman said in a post from late May that cops are “Tax collectors with guns. Wife beaters. Murderers.”

Amerman is currently being held in Albany, New York, as he waits to face his charges, and Shader, who has been arrested 11 times before, faces life in prison.

Marquette University threatened to rescind student’s admission over pro-Trump TikTok video

Marquette University threatened to rescind student’s admission over pro-Trump TikTok video

By Jackson Walker

July 7, 2020

Soon to be Marquette University freshman Samantha Pfefferle has yet to even step foot on campus, yet she said she is already facing possible dismissal from the school.

The threat to cancel Pfefferle’s admission came after she posted a video to her account on the popular social media site TikTok showing her support for President Donald Trump.

The video, titled “When the libs find their way to your page,” lists captions such as “When people see that I support Trump,” “Then try to hate on me,” and “And think I’ll change my views,” over a video of Pfefferle dancing.

The video features a Trump 2020 flag as well as a sign reading “Marquette 2024.” The song used in the video is rapper 6ix9ine’s GOOBA, and plays lyrics such as “ He’s mad, she’s’ mad, big sad, haha, don’t care, stay mad.”

Pfefferle’s post has been watched nearly 600,000 times and has since caught the attention of the Marquette community, some of whom began harassing Pfefferle. Others threatened her life.

“I hope you get shot,” one commenter told Pfefferle. “I’d pray for you but you’re not worth it,” another user added.

“I was extremely disappointed by the incendiary comments,” Pfefferle told The College Fix in an interview. “The response from my peers has been repulsive.”

Pfefferle explained that following the TikTok, she was contacted by Brian Troyer, dean of undergraduate admissions at Marquette, who she said told her her acceptance to the school was far from certain.

“[He] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student,” Pfefferle said. “This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”

Some Marquette administrators also asked Pfefferle a series of questions meant to judge her morals, she said.

“They also asked me hypothetical questions regarding Dreamers,” she said. “How would I respond if a Dreamer who lived down the hall from me came up to me and told me she didn’t feel safe or comfortable with my views and me being on campus. They also asked me if they thought there was anything I could do to improve my image on campus. They proceeded to ask if I was comfortable with the reputation I have established for myself. The assistant dean asked if I put any thought into the response I would be getting from my videos.”

The College Fix reached out to Marquette University, which did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

A Marquette spokeswoman told Empower Wisconsin that the school had not rescinded Pfefferle’s offer, although acknowledged “the admissions team did recently have a conversation with incoming freshman Samantha Pfefferle about statements made on her social media accounts.”

Other social media users are beginning to band together against Pfefferle as well.

An Instagram user has since created a copy and paste email template requesting to have Pfefferle’s admission rescinded from Marquette and is encouraging others to send the email to Marquette’s administration. It states in part:

Ms. Pfefferle has been very vocal on social media (TikTok, Instagram) about how she is enthusiastic about coming to Marquette in the Fall. As a Marquette student who is passionate for the University’s core values, such as Cura Personalis, and recognizing everyone’s human dignity, these transphobic, racist, and xenophobic comments should not be tolerated.

These comments made by Ms. Pfefferle were shared publicly, and were clearly presented as mocking jokes. Ms. Pfefferle is obviously proud of her statements, as she stands behind her words in every post.

These comments create and perpetuate an unsafe space for the LGBTQ+ community, first generation students, and Dreamers at Marquette.

Samantha Pfefferle is proud of her transphobic and xenophobic opinions, which under no circumstances should be allowed at Marquette. The University can and should make it their priority to ensure students (specifically LGBTQ+, immigrants, first gen, and POC) feel safe, valued, and appreciated on campus.

Commenters on TikTok are also continuing to express their disapproval of Pfefferle’s conservative views.

“how can i help. she will not be going to college next year,” wrote a commenter. “Free speech does not mean no consequences,” commented another. “i love love LOVE conservatives getting their school offers revoked,” added one user.

Pfefferle is not alone in her fight to attend Marquette, however, as a petition on Change.org titled “Stop Marquette University From Removing Incoming Conservative Student for Her Beliefs” aims to keep her enrolled.

“Freedom of expression is the most fundamental of all rights,” the petition states. “What precedence are we setting for future conservative generations? We can’t afford to capitulate in the face of tyranny when our youth are depending on us to protect their rights.”

“Since when did one’s political leanings make a difference as to whether or not one can attend a college?” one petition signer asked.

The call to action, which has reached more than 1,200 supporters in seven days, petitions the Republican National Committee along with 16 other famous conservatives including former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, President Donald Trump, and conservative talk show host Sean Hannity, to help spread awareness of Pfefferle’s fight.

When asked her plans for this fall, Pfefferle explained she still hopes to attend Marquette.

“I still would like to attend Marquette University,” she said. “However, because of the death threats, bullying, and harassment, this transition will be difficult to make. As of right now, I’m being left in the dark as to how Marquette is addressing the harassment.”

Editor’s note: After publication Tuesday, Pfefferle reached out to The College Fix and said that the school on Monday finally told her it would not revoke her admissions. Campus officials still have not responded to numerous requests from The Fix for comment.

Another hate crime hoax: Oregon commission candidate admits he wrote ‘racist’ letter to himself

Another hate crime hoax: Oregon commission candidate admits he wrote ‘racist’ letter to himself

By Jon Dougherty

July 7, 2020

An Oregon man gunning for a seat at the political table has joined the ranks of now notorious hate crime ‘hoaxers’ Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace.

A Hispanic candidate for an Oregon county commission seat has admitted he faked a ‘racist’ letter to himself, though he now says he never meant to “mislead” anyone.

Jonathan Lopez, who ran an unsuccessful primary campaign for a seat on the Umatilla County commission in May, had initially claimed that a racially-tinged letter had been left in his mailbox.

But in an email to the press on Monday, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said Lopez admitted to law enforcement that he wrote the letter.

The chief added that the case would be turned over to the district attorney’s office to decide whether to prosecute Lopez for filing a false police report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in the state.

“From the onset, this alleged incident has been thoroughly investigated,” Edmiston wrote in an email to the Lagrand Observer. “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media. The end result is a verbal and written admission by Mr. Lopez that the letter was fabricated.”

Lopez, one of five candidates who ran for a nonpartisan seat being vacated by Umatilla County Commissioner Bill Elfering after eight years, posted a picture of the letter, which contained racist, misogynistic, and homophobic slurs on Facebook. In the post, which has since been deleted, Lopez wrote that he had received the letter but harbored “no resentment for whomever wrote this.”

As seen in the photo, the letter said that Lopez and other “Mexicans” were “not welcome here.”

“America is for the God-fearing, pro-gun, pro-life humans who refuse to be controlled by the government,” the letter said.

After being contacted by the East Oregonian newspaper, Lopez said that the incident was simply a big misunderstanding, and that he only wanted to talk to Edmonton about alleged racism in Umatilla County. He claimed that he only sought to use the letter as an example of the kind of racism some people experience but don’t talk about in public very often.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” Lopez said, adding he “never meant to mislead” anyone.

When he was asked about the statements he made on Facebook and his comments to an East Oregonian reporter June 24 that he discovered the letter in his mailbox at home, Lopez confessed he had told police the same thing.

Edmiston said his department will also be forwarding information to the district attorney regarding potentially fraudulent statements Lopez made in his May 2020 voters guide regarding his background and education.

Lopez, who is also a member of the city of Hermiston’s Hispanic Advisory Committee, placed fourth in the May primary.

The police chief said Hermiston officers had learned that Lopez never served in the U.S. Coast Guard as he claimed in election materials, which — if true — is a violation of the Stolen Valor Act of 2013.

So far, the Observer reported, Lopez, 29, has not provided authorities with any proof of his claimed service.

“This investigation is particularly frustrating as we are in the midst of multiple major investigations while battling a resource shortage due to the current pandemic,” Edmiston said, the Observer reported.

“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today. As a lifelong resident of this diverse community, I’m disgusted someone would try to carelessly advance their personal ambitions at the risk of others.”

The Hermiston Herald published a bio of the five county commission candidates May 5. It says he is an “associate pastor at Hermiston’s Living Springs Apostolic Church and the chief executive officer of the Einstein Learning Center.”

“I have no political background or involvement in my past history, but I am a person who always cares and is concerned for his community,” he is quoted as saying. “If I’m being prosperous, if I’m being successful, then I shouldn’t be content with other people’s misery.

“I want to work for all the residents of Umatilla County. I want to reestablish our place in the world so that they can see our potential and what we have here as a county in the state of Oregon,” he added.

Lopez’s hate hoax is the latest in a series of other higher-profile instances involving minorities who falsely claimed they were targeted or attacked because of their race.

Most recently, NASCAR No. 43 driver Bubba Wallace initially claimed that a garage door rope fashioned into a noose by someone was directed at him, but an FBI investigation determined the noose had been in the Talladega Superspeedway stall for months.

And in early 2019, “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett faked an attack on himself and blamed in on white Trump-supporting males.

Cancel culture at its worst: A Boeing executive just quit his job because an employee complained that 33 years ago, he had written that he was against women in combat

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

July 7, 2020

Boeing communications chief Niel Golightly just quit his job because an employee complained that 33 years ago, he had written that he was against women in combat.

According to this article from Reuters, in a 1987 article, Golightly had written:

“At issue is not whether women can fire M-60s, dogfight MiGs, or drive tanks. Introducing women into combat would destroy the exclusively male intangibles of war fighting and the feminine images of what men fight for – peace, home, family.”

33 years after Golightly’s article was published, a Boeing employee complained about the above quote.

Golightly responded by resigning.

This is beyond insane.

Everyone says things that someone somewhere might someday complain about. By the above logic, no one should ever have any job ever.

I wonder how radical leftists are going to square their current “cancel culture” with their current promise of a guaranteed job that is being promised as part of their Green New Deal.

Video: Black Lives Matter protestors use physical force to prevent regular black people from buying groceries at Wal-Mart in Arkansas

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

July 6, 2020

In the eight minute video below, we see Black Lives Matter protestors using physical force to prevent regular black people from buying groceries at Wal-Mart in Arkansas.

Alexis Wainwright, the young lady doing the narration in the video, tries very hard to give us an objective view of what is going on. She tries very hard not to take sides. Good for her. She’d make a great reporter.

I’m not a reporter. My blog is not a news website. It’s an opinion website. Everything that I say here is my own opinion.

And I just want to say that in my opinion, what Black Lives Matter is doing here is absolutely despicable.

Using physical force to prevent regular black people from buying groceries does not do anything to help black lives. On the contrary, since black people need to buy groceries, and since black people work at Wal-Mart, Black Lives Matter is hurting, not helping, black lives.

And if – gosh forbid – Black Lives Matter was somehow able to force these Wal-Marts to permanently close, I have no doubt that Black Lives Matter would then accuse Wal-Mart of being “racist” for not wanting to open stores in black neighborhoods.

In general, the radical left wing jerks who try the hardest to either shut down current Wal-Marts or prevent new Wal-Marts from opening, are the same radical left wing jerks who claim that food deserts are caused by “racism.”

In the real world, food deserts are not caused by racism. In the real world, food deserts are caused by crime, shoplifting, looting, arson, and other criminal activities which are tolerated, and even supported, by the radical left. For example, after the recent nationwide riots began, Marielle Segarra wrote this article, which is called, “Neighborhoods where stores were destroyed become food deserts overnight.”

Black lives matter. Black lives need food. Black lives needs jobs. Using physical force to shut down a Wal-Mart prevents black people from being able to get the food and jobs that they need. Black Lives Matter does not care about black lives.

Here’s the video:

In Seattle, Black Lives Matter hypocrites called the police after a black man drove his car into two white, female protestors who were standing in the middle of the road

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

July 5, 2020

Black Lives Matter claims to want to “protect” black people from the “racist” police.

The Official website for Black Lives Matter calls for getting rid of the police. Their exact words are:

“We call for a national defunding of police.”

However, in Seattle, after a black man drove his car into two white, female protestors who were standing in the middle of the road, Black Lives Matter called the police.

Calling the police because a black man hurt two white women is completely and totally 100% hypocritical on the part of Black Lives Matter.

Especially considering the fact that the two white women had chosen to stand in the middle of the road.

Oh gee. I keep using that phrase “middle of the road.” It”s time to get me some Pretenders:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hONtmFgh3IQ

Anyway, it’s true that the road had been supposedly closed to traffic, but this was not enough to stop the driver.

The protestors were standing in the middle of the road, and yet they acted shocked when some of them got hit by a car.

Here’s video of the incident, followed by the obligatory “shocked” scene from the movie Casablanca:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jtXAP06qzA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjbPi00k_ME

One of the protestors who got hit by the car has since died from her injuries.

After the incident happened, but before one of the protestors died from her injuries, Capt. Ron Mead of the Washington State Patrol said:

“Whether they’re protesters, whether they’re homeless, whether they’re broken down motorists, the freeway is simply not a safe place for pedestrians and we’ve said that steadfast… My hope is the result of this tragedy, the protesters will reconsider their desire to be on the interstate because I cannot guarantee their safety, plain and simple.”

I agree with everything that Mead says, except that I do not share his optimism that left wing idiots will stop standing in the middle of the street. This is not the first time that left wing idiots who were standing in the middle of the street ended up getting hit by an automobile. The left wing idiots didn’t lean from past incidents, so I doubt they will learn from this one.

Hypocrite Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan allowed left wing protestors to harass other people’s neighborhoods, but she had the police crack down on the protestors when they came to her own neighborhood

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

July 5, 2020

Hypocrite Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan allowed left wing protestors to harass other people’s neighborhoods, but she had the police crack down on the protestors when they came to her own neighborhood.

During the time that Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan allowed left wing protestors to forcefully take over the neighborhood known as CHAZ (or CHOP), during the time period from June 2 to June 30, crime in that neighborhood increased by 525%, compared to the same time period during the previous year.

This includes two murders that happened in CHAZ during that time period this year, whereas the normal number of murders in that area during that time period is zero.

All the while that this was going on, Durkan did nothing to stop the left wing protestors who had forcefully taken over CHAZ.

But then the left wing protestors came to Mayor Durkan’s own neighborhood, and all of a sudden, Durkan decided to use the police to stop them.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkanis an extreme hypocrite for doing this. She allowed them to harass other people’s neighborhoods, but she got upset when they came to her own neighborhood.

Shame on Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan!

James Altucher made this excellent comment on Mayor Durkan’s hypocrisy:

Let’s see: six shootings, two teenage deaths, and @MayorJenny still says “it’s an arts festival”. THEN, the CHAZ threatens to take over her 5,000 sq ft house worth $7.6 million after her new addition. A DAY LATER, she brings in the police, “end the chaos!”

Seattle protesters struck by car; suspect in custody, police say

By Jay Croft and Alta Spells

July 4, 2020

Two women were seriously hurt early Saturday morning when a vehicle drove into a group of protesters in Seattle, authorities say.

A suspect faces multiple felony charges, said Capt. Ron Mead of the Washington State Patrol.

Seattle has been the scene of protests over police brutality and systemic racism, including in a six-block area controlled by protesters after police abandoned their precinct — the Capitol Hill Organized Protest or Capital Hill Autonomous Zone.

A few blocks away at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, the car drove into a group of protesters on a section that the WSP had closed about midnight. Mead said a car drove around a series of “support vehicles” that protesters were using to block I-5 and protect themselves, and onto the shoulder of the freeway where protesters were standing.

“A vehicle drove through the closure and struck multiple pedestrians on the freeway,” Trooper Rick Johnson said in a tweet.

https://twitter.com/SeattleFire/status/1279348194111967232

 

Some of the protesters scattered to avoid being hit, but “unfortunately two were struck by the vehicle,” Mead said at a press briefing.
A 24-year-old woman from Seattle suffered life-threatening injuries. A 32-year-old woman from Bellingham, Washington, had serious injuries and was reported in stable condition, Mead said. Both were taken to Harborview Medical Center, the Seattle Fire Department said in a tweet.

The suspect, a 27-year old man from Seattle, was given a sobriety test and showed no signs of impairment, but the WSP continues to investigate, Mead said.

When asked if this was a “targeted attack,” Mead said, “We don’t know that, that does remain a focus of our investigation.”

The driver was expected to be booked into King County Jail later Saturday morning, Mead said. He has not been charged.

Mean said possible charges include vehicular assault and felony hit and run.

Mead added that the highway is not a safe place for pedestrians.

“Whether they’re protesters, whether they’re homeless, whether they’re broken down motorists, the freeway is simply not a safe place for pedestrians and we’ve said that steadfast,” he said. “My hope is the result of this tragedy, the protesters will reconsider their desire to be on the interstate because I cannot guarantee their safety, plain and simple.”

Pitchfork-wielding protesters descend on wealthy Hamptons estates

Pitchfork-wielding protesters descend on wealthy Hamptons estates

By Tamar Lapin

July 1, 2020

A caravan of protesters — some wielding plastic pitchforks — descended on the Hamptons Wednesday to blast the rich and decry the nation’s rising income inequality.

More than 100 drivers and about 200 marchers paid a visit to the homes of some of the world’s wealthiest people, including ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

“Tax the rich, not the poor!” the protesters chanted outside Bloomberg’s $20 million Southhampton mansion, with some calling the failed presidential candidate a “looter.”

Protesters, several of whom came in from the Big Apple, demanded that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo raise taxes on the state’s 118 billionaires to make up for a steep revenue shortfall amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The group is taking issue with Cuomo’s pitch to cut 20 percent in state funding from schools, hospitals and housing agencies. They noted that while the virus outbreak has deeply impacted low-income people and communities of color, the wealth of US billionaires has surged.

“Enough is enough — it’s time for New York state to raise taxes on the rich instead of cutting services for working people,” said Alicé Nascimento, director of policy and research for New York Communities for Change, which helped organize the action.

Organizers also included the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, with about 40 medallion cabs taking part. The cabbies were already in a debt crisis before the virus emerged, and have been hit hard by the pandemic.

They led a chant of “No more suicides. No more bankruptcies” at one point during the march.

Members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation also took part in the protest, including Rebecca Genia, who said in a statement that “Billionaires take our land to build golf courses and mansions, profit from the ravages of coronavirus, and exploit our labor.”

“It’s clear the real looters in New York are billionaires — and it’s time to make them pay their fair share so we can all thrive.”

The group also stopped by mansions owned by Blackstone CEO Steven Schwarzman and real estate developer Stephen Ross, and had planned to visit the estate of investor and hedge fund manager Daniel Loeb.

“Billionaires are experts in social distancing,” Nascimento told The Post. “They’ve chosen to live in their own world and are separate from realities of everyday people and the people whose lives they have a tremendous impact on.”

Taking the protest to the wealthy enclave shows that “We are here. We are affected and not going to stand down. We’re going to make sure our voices are heard.”

Hardin-Simmons University expelled a student because she truthfully said that left wing protestors don’t seem to care about black-on-black violence as much as white-on-black violence. NBC News falsely said her statement was “racist.”

NBC News just published this article, which is called

Hardin-Simmons University in Texas says student who made racist TikTok ‘no longer enrolled’

Although I haven’t been able to find a copy of the student’s video, I did read the entire NBC article.

This is how NBC News describes the student’s video:

In the original video, the young woman first writes the caption, “People when a BLACK person kills a BLACK person” which shows her standing with a calm demeanor.

The next caption in the video reads, “People when a BLACK person kills a WHITE person,” and shows the woman remaining calm.

At the end of the video the caption transitions to, “People when a WHITE person kills a BLACK person,” and shows the woman engulfed in flames and mouthing angrily.

The student is telling the truth.

In the U.S., 93% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.

But I can’t think of a single nationwide Black Lives Matter protest about any of these black-on-black murders.

So the student’s video is accurate.

The fact that NBC called the video “racist” is a totally and completely false description of the video.

The NBC article also states:

“Upon learning about a TikTok post made this week by an HSU student, we immediately took action to address the situation and began the required disciplinary process,” the university said in a statement. “We can confirm that the student associated with this incident is no longer enrolled at Hardin-Simmons University,” the statement added.

So Hardin-Simmons University expelled the student because she said something that is true.

This action by the university is despicable, irrational, illogical, and intellectually dangerous, and it goes completely against the very principles of truth and learning that getting a college education is supposed to be about.

Shame on Hardin-Simmons University.

And it was just yesterday that I made this other blog post about a similar incident at a different college: Kansas State University is launching an investigation, and offering students counseling, all because one of its students truthfully said, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

Clearly, this kind of nonsense by college administrators has been getting more and more common. It’s completely wrong, and I fear for what the future will hold in this regard.

One thing that a lot of these incidents have in common is that they aren’t getting mad at students for lying. Instead, they are getting mad at students for telling the truth. When telling the truth is what gets people into trouble, we have reached a totalitarian environment. And that’s exactly what is happening on many American college campuses.

Hypocrisy at its worst: June 26, 2020: “Minneapolis City Council unanimously votes on plan to dismantle police department.” June 26, 2020: “Minneapolis Council members get private security” funded by the city’s taxpayers.

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

June 27, 2020

On June 26, 2020, Fox News reported:

“Minneapolis City Council unanimously votes on plan to dismantle police department”

On the same day, the Minneapolis affiliate of Fox News reported:

“Minneapolis Council members get private security…”

“The City of Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day for private security for three council members…”

“… the private security details have cost the city $63,000 over the past three weeks…”

“… The hourly cost of private security is similar to the cost for a police officer…”

So these Minneapolis politicians voted to get rid of the police for the general population, but used the city’s taxpayers’ money to hire their own private security. This is extremely hypocritical. Shame on them.

Kansas State University is launching an investigation, and offering students counseling, all because one of its students truthfully said, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

June 27, 2020

Jaden McNeil is a student at Kansas State University.

McNeil recently made the following tweet:

https://twitter.com/McNeilJaden/status/1276255988732039168

The text of McNeil’s tweet states:

“Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

Thomas Lane is vice president for student life and dean of students at the university.

Lane responded to McNeil’s tweet with the following four statements, each of which appeared in its own tweet:

https://twitter.com/ThomasALane/status/1276503680825602049

https://twitter.com/ThomasALane/status/1276503688396374017

https://twitter.com/ThomasALane/status/1276503689516191744

https://twitter.com/ThomasALane/status/1276503690594201600

Here is the text from each of Lane’s four tweets:

“I’m aware of the Twitter posting by a K-State student. The lack of basic decency and care for how this post would impact others, especially our Black students, faculty, & staff already emotionally hurting from recent incidents of anti-Black violence is shameful and appalling.”

“It is in blatant opposition to the values we hold close and aspire to as a university, such as diversity, inclusion, civility and respect.”

“K-State condemns the post in the strongest of terms. It does not reflect who we are as confirmed by the outrage expressed by so many campus community members. Bigotry, prejudice & racism have no place here.”

“For those impacted by this incident, please know there are supportive resources available including The Office of Student Life, Counseling Services, @KStateDiversity”

All of Lane’s comments are complete nonsense.

The fact that the school is offering counseling to students who were “impacted” by McNeil’s tweet is absurd.

The claim that McNeil’s tweet is “bigoted, prejudiced, and racist” is false.

The only thing that matters to me is whether or not McNeil’s statement is true.

So let’s look at these three facts:

Fact #1: George Floyd’s autopsy showed that he had fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cannabinoids in his system when he died.

Fact #2: The date of Floyd’s death was May 25, 2020.

Fact #3: The date of McNeil’s tweet is June 25, 2020.

Based on these three facts, McNeil’s statement is true.

So Kansas State University is launching an investigation, and offering students counseling, all because one of its students made a statement which is true.

That is irrational, illogical, ridiculous, and absurd.

For those of you who aren’t offended by everything, here are two of my older blog posts that I think you might enjoy:

Requiring photo ID is “racist,” except when it’s done by Obama, the NAACP, unions, or any other liberals

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

June 24, 2020

In March 2012, Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID requirement, claiming that it was “racist.”

However, Obama’s Justice Department required photo ID for everyone who enters.

So let’s say that in 2012, someone was denied their right to vote because they didn’thave voter ID, and they wanted to file a lawsuit at the Justice Department. But because they didn’t have photo ID, they couldn’t have gotten get into the Justice Department in the first place!

This video is from 2012. Beginning at 2:39, we see that Obama’s Justice Department required photo ID for everyone who entered:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZf25pmgR4c

The same video also shows that you need photo ID in order to enter other liberal organizations which claim that requiring voter ID is “racist,” including the Advancement Project (at 1:38), the Center for American Progress (2:08), and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (2:23).

At a July 2012 NAACP event, NAACP President Ben Jealous claimed that requiring voter ID was “racist.” However, at that very same event, the NAACP required photo ID in order to get into the event in the first place!

Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Britain, India, and South Africa all require photo ID in order to vote, but U.S. liberals don’t consider those countries’ requirements to be “racist.”

In January 2012, Illinois passed a law that required buyers of drain cleaner to show photo ID, but liberals didn’t accuse this requirement of being “racist.”

In June 2012, Michelle Obama required photo ID in order to attend her book signings, but liberals didn’t accuse her of being “racist.”

In June 2012, Barack Obama required photo ID in order to attend his campaign events, but liberals didn’t accuse him of being “racist.”

In December 2017, for every performance of the play “Hamilton” at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, 40 tickets were sold for a special low price of $10 each. To get these tickets, you had to apply online. A lottery randomly chose 40 winners for each performance. Winners were required to show photo ID when they showed up to see the play. But liberals didn’t accuse this theater of being “racist.”

This article from Politico includes the following photograph of a labor union that requires photo ID in order for its members to vote, but liberals didn’t accuse this union of being “racist”:

BET founder Robert Johnson mocks crowds pulling down statues, canceling TV shows, apologizing for being white

BET Founder Robert Johnson Mocks Crowds Pulling Down Statues, Canceling TV Shows, Apologizing For Being White

June 24, 2020

On Wednesday, BET Founder Robert Johnson mocked those who are destroying statues across the U.S. and who are trying to cancel television shows because they think that’s what black people want.

During an interview with Fox News, Johnson said that those who are destroying statues across the country “have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying ‘Oh, my God, look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South.’”

“You know, black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV shows [like] The Dukes of Hazard,” Johnson continued. “I bet if you go back and look at the Nielsen ratings when The Dukes of Hazard was on television, I’ll bet you it had a huge black viewing population. The one thing you can do is research it, find out, because blacks watched more television than whites did, always has been historically.”

Johnson also took a shot at white Americans who think that by doing “emotionally or drastic things” that black people will look at them and think that white people love them. Johnson said that “black people don’t give a damn” if statues of people like Stonewall Jackson, who was a Confederate general, are taken down.

Johnson also mocked HBO Max for taking down “Gone with the Wind,” then putting it back with a disclaimer, saying, “What the hell do you need a disclaimer with ‘Gone with the Wind,’ as if black people think that we believe that slavery was like ‘Gone with the Wind’? Who are you trying to convince?”

“Look, the people who are basically tearing down statues, trying to make a statement, are basically borderline anarchists, the way I look at it. They really have no agenda other than the idea we’re going to topple a statue,” Johnson said. “It’s not going to give a kid whose parents can’t afford college money to go to college. It’s not going to close the labor gap between what white workers are paid and what black workers are paid. And it’s not going to take people off welfare or food stamps.”

Johnson also mocked “white privilege,” and those who get on social media and apologize for being white.

“You know, that to me is the silliest expression of white privilege that exists in this country. The notion that a celebrity could get on a Twitter feed and say, ‘Oh my God, I am so sorry that I am white.’ I don’t find any black people getting on Twitter and saying, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry I’m black.’ And we got the worst problems. … My thing is: embrace being white and do the right thing.”

The Guardian falsely wrote: “a protester was shot as he tried to bring down conquistador statue.” Wrong! The guy who got shot in Albuquerque was not “trying to bring down a statue.” He was trying to murder someone. So the guy shot him in self defense.

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

June 17, 2020

This incident recently happened in Albuquerque.

The Guardian just published this article, which has the following headline and subheadline: (the bolding is mine)

“Armed vigilantes under scrutiny after statue protester shot in New Mexico”

“Armed militia members were out in force at demonstration when a protester was shot as he tried to bring down conquistador statue”

The article states:

“Steven Ray Baca, 31, shot a protester as he and others attempted to bring down a statue”

That’s not what happened.

The guy who got shot was not “trying to bring down a statue.”

Instead, the guy who got shot was trying to commit murder.

The shooting was self defense.

The shooter had just been assaulted by several members of Antifa. They beat him. They hit him with a skateboard. They knocked him down to the ground. And they verbally threatened to kill him.

Here’s a video which shows them attacking him. And then he shoots one of them in self defense:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjNSvexSLoQ

It’s very clear that the shooting was in self defense.

And it’s also very clear that the person who got shot was not “trying to bring down a statue.”
