    (WCMH) — Walmart employees are expected to walk out in protest of the retailer’s gun sales policies Wednesday afternoon. The Washington Post reports hundreds of workers at Walmart e-commerce offices in California, Portland and Brooklyn are planning to walk out at 3 p.m. The walk out comes after a gunman opened fire in an El Paso Walmart Saturday, killing 22 people and wounding dozens. Last week, a Walmart employee shot and killed two co-workers at a store in Southaven, Mississippi. Organizers started a Change.org petition calling on Walmart and the retailer’s president and CEO Doug McMillon to “cease the sale...

    Roving, cop-hating mobs erupted in violence, taunts and gunfire in Brooklyn overnight into Sunday, leaving three officers with minor injuries. At least some of the injuries were caused by “air mail,” objects thrown down at cops from rooftops, police at the scene in Bedford-Stuyvesant told The Post. By early Sunday, 11 people had been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct. The violence came after a series of water dousing attacks on NYPD officers throughout the city this summer.

    A roving band of teen robbers slugged three Orthodox Jewish men in the face in Brooklyn early Monday and tried to rob them, sparking an NYPD hate crime probe, authorities said. The three robbers first walked up to a 71-year-old man on Ross St. near Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg and punched him in the fact about 5 a.m. They checked his pockets, but found nothing to steal and took off. The man was treated at Bellevue Hospital.

    Already missing from the news cycle is the story of Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj, who alerted authorities to the squalid conditions in New Mexico in which his son, two daughters, another man and woman, and 11 children were living.Authorities arrived at the compound to some of the most horrifying conditions they had ever seen, and prosecutors identified the makeshift home as a training ground for militant children, including in carrying out school shootings. The imam’s son had been wanted for kidnapping his own four-year-old child, who had severe disabilities. The body of a young child was recovered from the...

    Brooklyn: Mosque spokesman says women who show “any indication” of their form are cursed, disobedient and deviant JUL 28, 2019 1:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER Why should anyone expect Ali Abdul-Karim Judan to have any different view of women? The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom...

    A man charged with joining the Islamic State (ISIS) as a sniper and firearms instructor originally came to the United States through the “Diversity Visa Lottery,” a program responsible for bringing more than half a million randomly chosen foreign nationals to the country in a single decade. Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, 42-years-old, was charged last week in a Brooklyn, New York, federal court for aiding ISIS in 2013 when he allegedly traveled to Turkey and Syria to fight for the terrorist group. Asainov, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency has confirmed, first arrived in the U.S. through the...

    Long Island University-Brooklyn will be scrapping its 84-year-old mascot/nickname of “Blackbirds” this fall as a result of an athletics program merger with its Post campus. But that’s not all: LIU President Kimberly Cline noted she “had heard” the nickname name “is an offensive racist mascot,” according to the New York Post. At the end of March, Cline had told a group of a dozen concerned LIU-Brooklyn alumni that “Blackbirds” was to be replaced “for a few reasons.”

    Workers at a "socialist paradise" food co-op in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope say they're tired of being oppressed by their bourgeoisie management and are demanding that they be allowed to unionize, per the New York Post. Daily Wire TV The Park Slope Food Co-op is supposed to be a safe haven from capitalist grocery stores, where member-volunteers can put in a few hours of work a month in exchange for 20% to 40% off the price of "low-cost, environmentally friendly fare." But the co-op also has around 75 employees, who say the realities of the socialist system are...

    The Brooklyn Museum has sparked outrage in the black community after tapping a white woman to curate its vast African art collection. On Monday the museum appointed Kristen Windmuller-Luna, 31, who has a Ph.D. in African art history from Princeton University, lectures in Columbia University’s department of art history and archaeology, and once worked as an educator for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she was “responsible for adult and college gallery tours in the African galleries.” Despite the stellar résumé, her hiring left some wondering why a qualified person of color did not get the post. “Seriously, @brooklynmuseum?...

    Another seemingly random antisemitic attack took place in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Thankfully nobody was killed, but it was still alarming and part of an insidious, growing trend. A Hasidic Jewish man was walking along the sidewalk in broad daylight on Saturday when an assailant suddenly ran up on him from behind, screaming antisemitic slurs. In a cowardly attack, he swung and viciously punched the Jewish man in the side of the head from behind and then ran away. (CBS New York) The NYPD are looking for the man behind another violent attack in Brooklyn. The incident marks the...

    A Queens man caught preparing for a 9/11 anniversary suicide bomb attack on the subways under Grand Central will soon walk out of prison thanks to a sentence that amounts to his time already served, a judge ruled Thursday. Najibullah Zazi, 33, had faced up to life in prison after his 2009 arrest, but spent nearly the next 10 years cooperating against al Qaeda. Thursday’s 10-year sentence - which, given his good behavior behind bars, means he will be sprung any day now - came at the urging of prosecutors, who cited his extensive cooperation in arguing that he deserved...

    Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi Muslim living in Brooklyn, really hated Christmas. He hated Christmas so much that he used Christmas tree lights (along with a battery and some wire) as a trigger for a pipe bomb. He filled the pipe bomb with screws so that when it went off, metal shrapnel would tear bloody holes through morning commuters in Manhattan. Wearing a hooded jacket and a backpack to cover the pipe bomb strapped to his body, Ullah got on the F Train at the 18th Avenue elevated subway station off Little Bangladesh. Like the Duke Ellington song says, he switched...

    Longtime Colombo under-boss John “Sonny” Franzese is the living embodiment of the ultimate mob rule — bragging in an interview about refusing to rat despite it making him the oldest federal prisoner at the age of 100. Wheelchair-bound Franzese, now 102 and living in a nursing home, told Newsday about his life of crime — and how he stuck to the “Goodfellas” adage of “Never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut” despite facing 50 years behind bars.

    Anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled on a sign featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg at a subway station in Brooklyn earlier this week. The words “Die Jew Bitch” and a swastika were first spotted scribbled in black marker over the face of RBG on Tuesday on an ad pushing a new book about the Supreme Court justice at the Nassau Avenue subway stop on the G line. The vandalism was reported to the NYPD on Wednesday morning via social media. Responding on Twitter, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea called the incident “abhorrent.” “As always, NYC has no place for hate,” Shea said.
