After Rudy Giuliani said 93% of black murder victims were murdered by other blacks, the Washington Post said his statement was accurate, but then they gave it two Pinocchios anyway!

Black Lives Matter praises Fidel Castro for protecting murderers, hijackers, and terrorists from U.S. authorities
Black Lives Matter Salutes Fidel Castro, is ‘Grateful’ He Harbored an FBI Most Wanted Terrorist
November 27, 2016
The Black Lives Matter movement has come out in support of Fidel Castro, following his death on Friday, saying they must “come to the defense of El Comandante” and thanking him for safeguarding Assata Shakur, who’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list.
The movement penned an article on Sunday titled “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante” on the Medium platform where they eulogized the passing of the Cuban dictator. The article, which was not bylined, was Tweeted out by the closest thing there is to an official Black Lives Matter account and also posted on the movement’s semi-official Facebook page.
The article claims Castro’s death has caused “an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety.”
“Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante,” it added.
The article continues by portraying Castro as a model freedom fighter, who Black Lives Matter should strive to follow and emulate. It said: “As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!”
The movement then thanked the Cuban dictator for hiding criminals and domestic terrorists from the U.S government, such as Michael Finney, Ralph Goodwin, and Charles Hill — who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque while being sought for the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom.
Hill told a Washington Post reporter in the 1990s that he had no regrets about killing the state trooper, a father of two young daughters.
The BLM movement is also also “particularly grateful” to Castro for harboring “Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us.” Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard, is currently on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1 million bounty on her head.
She was convicted in the U.S. of killing a New Jersey state trooper, assault and battery of a police officer. After she escaped from prison, Castro granted her asylum in Cuba in 1984.

Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante
November 27, 2016
We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro. There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety. Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante. And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel.
From Fidel, we know that revolution is sparked by an idea, by radical imaginings, which sometimes take root first among just a few dozen people coming together in the mountains. It can be a tattered group of meager resources, like in Sierra Maestro in 1956 or St. Elmo Village in 2013.
Revolution is continuous and is won first in the hearts and minds of the people and is continually shaped and reshaped by the collective. No single revolutionary ever wins or even begins the revolution. The revolution begins only when the whole is fully bought in and committed to it. And it is never over.
Revolution transcends borders; the freedom of oppressed people and people of color is all bound up together wherever we are. In Cuba, South Africa, Palestine, Angola, Tanzania, Mozambique, Grenada, Venezuela, Haiti, African America, and North Dakota. We must not only root for each other but invest in each other’s struggles, lending our voices, bodies, and resources to liberation efforts which may seem distant from the immediacy of our daily existence.
Revolution is rooted in the recognition that there are certain fundamentals to which every being has a right, just by virtue of one’s birth: healthy food, clean water, decent housing, safe communities, quality healthcare, mental health services, free and quality education, community spaces, art, democratic engagement, regular vacations, sports, and places for spiritual expression are not questions of resources, but questions of political will and they are requirements of any humane society.
Revolution requires that the determination to create and preserve these things for our people takes precedent over individual drives for power, recognition, and enrichment.
A final lesson is that to be a revolutionary, you must strive to live in integrity. As a Black network committed to transformation, we are particularly grateful to Fidel for holding Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us. We are thankful that he provided a home for Brother Michael Finney Ralph Goodwin, and Charles Hill, asylum to Brother Huey P. Newton, and sanctuary for so many other Black revolutionaries who were being persecuted by the American government during the Black Power era. We are indebted to Fidel for sending resources to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake and attempting to support Black people in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina when our government left us to die on rooftops and in floodwaters. We are thankful that he provided a space where the traditional spiritual work of African people could flourish, regardless of his belief system.
With Fidel’s passing there is one more lesson that stands paramount: when we are rooted in collective vision when we bind ourselves together around quests for infinite freedom of the body and the soul, we will be victorious. As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!
Since YouTube came into existence many years ago, I have watched a huge number of different videos of protestors in the U.S. standing in the street in front of oncoming traffic.
And in every case – every single one – the protestors were always left wing, and never right wing.
Occupy Wall St. took that term literally – they occupied the street. So did Black Lives Matter. And now the anti-Trumpers are doing it.
But of all the tea party protests and other right wing protests in the U.S. that I have ever watched, I have never seen even one where they were standing in the street in front of oncoming traffic.
Why is that?
Here is a recent anti-Trump protest from San Diego, where they are standing in the street, in the dark of night, in front of oncoming traffic, and which shows – with a very loud “THUD!” – one of them getting hit by a car:
Liberals’ faces melted after reading this blonde, white journo’s tweet about Charlotte shootings
September 22, 2016
Katie Hopkins has received both backlash and support for a tweet she posted Thursday morning about the current social unrest in Charlotte, NC.
The tweet said:
“Black man shot by another black man during a protest of shooting of a black man by a black cop. My white privilege means I don’t understand”
Hypocrisy alert! Black Lives Matter leader gets robbed by armed black man, and then complains that there are not enough police officers!
Students concerned about increased crime near University of Houston main campus
September 8, 2016
HOUSTON (KTRK) — A University of Houston grad student was robbed at gunpoint just outside his off-campus apartment by a man he mistook as a student.
Jerry Ford Jr. has fought for social justice around Houston as one of the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement. But Wednesday night, he became a victim.
“The guy was standing right here just seemed like he was hanging out,” Ford said. “I told him wassup. He asked me did I have a key to get in. I told him yeah I’m about to go upstairs.”
Ford lives just blocks from the UH campus at the Vue on MacGregor apartments.
“I reach in right here to open the door and I turn back around and he has the gun right there in my face,” he tells us.
The bad guy took his wallet and his phone and ran off into MacGregor Park.
“It was just a couple of weeks ago that somebody was robbed just across the bayou at the bus stop,” said Aaron Maxwell.
Last month, dozens of vehicles were broken into at the Campus Vue apartments around the corner.
Maxwell is a sophomore transfer student who also lives at the Vue on MacGregor. He says he didn’t know about the robbery until we told him about it.
“It’s a little daunting. I’m not from Houston and I just moved here for school and everything. And it seems to be…it’s not just here at this property, it’s the area,” he said.
All this as the university touts its record enrollment. These apartments mainly house UH students, but the university says UH Police do not patrol them. Ford says that needs to change.
“It’s becoming a pattern. I hope they would take a bigger stance and put more security over here because you have a lot of people walking back and forth to class,” Ford said.
As scary as this was, Ford actually feels bad for the guy.
“I would’ve gave him money,” he said. “I would’ve talked to him because the real crime is why is he in that position that he feels the need to come and hang out at a college campus and rob people of stuff they worked for.”
Houston police say the suspect is a black man around 30 years old, 5’6 to 5’7, around 150 pounds with medium dreadlocks. He was wearing dark shorts and a camouflage shirt.
In 2005, the Washington Post reported:
… a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the “Grand Dragon” for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.
In 2010, Clinton referred to Byrd as
“my friend and mentor”
You can hear her saying it at the beginning of this video:
Houston New Black Panther head Quannel X praises Donald Trump, criticizes Barack Obama and the Democratic party (three minute video)
CNN has deceptively edited footage to make it falsely seem like someone said the exact opposite of what they actually said.
Sherelle Smith, the sister of the armed man who was recently shot and killed by police in Milwaukee, said: (the bolding is mine)
“Burnin’ down shit ain’t going to help nothin! Y’all burnin’ down shit we need in our community. Take that shit to the suburbs. Burn that shit down! We need our shit! We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.”
However, CNN edited out the bolded part.
In addition, CNN reporter Ana Cabrera falsely said that Ms. Smith was “calling for peace,” which is the exact opposite of what she was actually doing, which is that she was calling for people to commit arson.
This has got to be one of the worst cases that I have ever heard of of police shooting an innocent person.
Even the police officer who shot this guy says he doesn’t know why he shot him:
1) In December 2014, in Berkeley, Missouri, Alvin Henry Jones Jr., 62, died two days after Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying him.
2) In January 2015, in Milton, Massachusettes, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying Richard McGrath, 82. The protestors chained themselves to barrels full of concrete to make especially sure that no vehicles could get by. In February 2016, after 10 of the protestors pled guilty to “willfully impending an emergency vehicle,” and were sentenced to six months of probation and 60 hours of community service, their spokesperson said that they were not sorry for what they had done.
3) In July 2016, in Memphis, Tennessee, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was trying to get to a child, after the same Black Lives Matter protestors had blocked the same child’s parents’ car from taking him to the hospital.
4) In March 2016, in Chicago, Illinois, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that had its emergency sirens blaring. In this video, you can see that many of the protestors deliberately repositioned themselves so they were standing specifically, directly in front of the ambulance, even though its emergency sirens had already been blaring for quite some time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvCdAuBBh0U
Snopes falsely says it’s a “total falsehood” that Black Lives Matter protestors in Memphis, Tennessee, caused a child to delay getting emergency medical care
According to this report from WREG, this report from WMC, this report from WIS, and this report from NBC, on July 11, 2016, in Memphis, Tennessee, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was trying to get to a child, after the same Black Lives Matter protestors had blocked the same child’s parents’ car from taking him to the hospital.
However, despite all of this evidence from multiple reliable sources, snopes claims that the incident is a “total falsehood.”
How did snopes manage to do this? By adding on false information to the original story, such as the false claim that the child needed a “heart transplant,” as well as the false claim that the child had “expired.” Those claims were, indeed, false. But no reliable source ever made those claims in the first place.
For snopes to label the entire incident as a “total falsehood” is to say that the entire incident never happened. And that claim by snopes is the real falsehood.
Video shows Black Lives Matter protestors deliberately blocking ambulance with emergency sirens blaring outside Trump rally in Chicago
Notice in the video how, even though the ambulance’s emergency sirens are blaring, the Black Lives Matter protestors deliberately move themselves so they can be directly in front of the ambulance to prevent it from taking a patient to the hospital.
It would be quite ironic if the patient turned out to be black, and he or she ended up dying as a result of these Black Lives Matter protestors.
Here are previous blog entries that I have made about Black Lives Matter protestors blocking ambulances:
Starbucks is opening its first cafe in Ferguson, Missouri. It is contracting with local and minority firms. It is teaming up with a local non-profit.
Starbucks certainly has the best of intentions.
What the actual results will be will up to the people who live in the community.
Will they treat this Starbucks the same way that people in most neighborhoods treat their local Starbucks?
Or, will they smash the windows, loot it, and burn it down?
Only time will tell.
Here is another bogus claim that a gun “accidentally went off.”
The claim is wrong.
That is not what happened.
What did happen is that some idiot human being pulled the gun’s trigger.
This moron, who shot and killed his own four-year-old daughter, violated all three of the three most important gun safety rules:
1) Always assume that the gun is loaded.
2) Never point the gun at anyone you don’t intend to shoot.
3) Don’t put your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to shoot.
A Mailman Handcuffed in Brooklyn, Caught on Video
March 25, 2016
Glen Grays, a 27-year-old African-American mail carrier, was making his rounds in Crown Heights, in Brooklyn…
Mr. Grays was descending the steps of his mail truck backward, as postal workers often do to minimize wear and tear on the knees, when out of the corner of his eye he noticed a car making a sharp right turn onto President from Franklin Avenue. Mr. Grays shouted at the driver, climbing back up the steps to avoid getting sideswiped. The black car, in Mr. Grays’s telling, came tearing back his way in reverse. The driver said to him, Mr. Grays recounted, “I have the right of way because I’m law enforcement.” The unmarked car held four plainclothes police officers, according to the Brooklyn borough president’s office, which has taken an interest in the case.
By the time Mr. Grays arrived at the front door of 999 President Street, the police were approaching him. A video of the incident, taken by an observer on the street, begins at this point and shows Mr. Grays, in his postal uniform, as he is handcuffed, frisked and taken to the unmarked car. The officers tell him to stop resisting, even though there is no evidence in the video of resistance. What the video does not show, Mr. Grays said, is what happened next, after he was placed in the back seat of the unmarked car, with his hands cuffed and without a seatbelt, compelling him to leave the mail truck unattended. The driver, who had turned around to taunt him, hit the vehicle in front of them, Mr. Grays said, causing him to bang his shoulder against the front seat. Mr. Grays was then taken to the 71st Precinct station, where he was issued a summons for disorderly conduct that will require him to appear in court. He was then released.
Check out this video of “Black Lives Matter” protesters at Dartmouth College, harassing students who are trying to study in the school’s library. And keep in mind that this in an Ivy League school – a supposed pinnacle of academia, intellectualism, and maturity:
Victor Davis Hanson recently raised an excellent point when he wrote:
One common denominator characterizes almost all unrest on college campuses: the demands to create more “-studies” courses (black, Latino, feminist, gay, etc.) and thus to hire more -studies professors.
So far there are few demands to make the physics department more diverse or to hire more engineering professors.
Here’s my take on this:
1) The black students who major in STEM subjects are too busy studying in the library, and don’t have the time, or the desire, to harass the other students who are studying in the library.
2) The students of all races who harass the students who are studying in the library, are themselves too lazy and incompetent to major in STEM subjects.
