  • A Showdown Between the KKK and the Black Panthers Is Brewing in Charleston

    07/05/2015 9:00:28 AM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 64 replies
    The New Black Panther Party and the Ku Klux Klan both scheduled hate rallies at the South Carolina state Capitol on the same day, July 18, and neither side appeared to be willing to consider rescheduling. According to Black Educators for Justice member James Mohammed, the NBPP would be out in full force at its rally. Likewise, USA Today reported earlier this week that the KKK left the following message on its answering machine: “We will be at the statehouse in Columbia, S.C., standing up for our Confederate history and all the southerners who fought and died against federal tyranny.”...
  • Confederate Flag Kills 7 At Alabama Shopping Mall (do I really need to tag this as satire?)

    Daily Currant ^ | 6/29/15
    Seven people were killed this morning when a Confederate flag walked into an Alabama shopping mall and started shooting. According to local reports, the flag entered Cherrywood Mall outside Huntsville armed with two AK-47 assault rifles, a P 228 handgun and several grenades. It immediately proceeded to unload its ordinance on unsuspecting shoppers. In addition to those killed, 23 people were injured and are currently being treated in area emergency rooms. Several are in critical condition and not expected to survive. The flag’s motivations are uncertain at the moment. However, according to witnesses the flag did specifically target White people...

    The Blaze ^ | 7/1/15 | Oliver Darcy
    When They Showed Up, These Guys Were Waiting(strong language warning) Anti-police activists were set to burn the American flag at a New York City park Wednesday evening, but their plans seemingly changed when dozens of bikers and veterans came out to counter protest. Flocking to Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, individuals opposed to burning the U.S. flag waited for the “Disarm NYPD” group to arrive. While most urged for peace, several bikers threatened violence toward anyone who would burn the American flag. “We’re here to f*** up tiny liberal punks,” a biker who refused to identify himself told TheBlaze.

    A report released by the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva on Tuesday called for alleged Israeli war criminals like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be arrested and tried for having led attacks against Palestinian civilians. Orders for the report to be prepared were initially given on July 23, 2014, just 16 days into the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict that started when Hamas began firing rockets into Israel. It also named as its start date June 13 — the day after Palestinian thugs kidnapped and murdered three Israeli teenagers. Furthermore, creation of the report was directed by Mary McGowan Davis,...

    DC Whispers ^ | 6/28/15
    Earlier today D.C. Whispers shared the stunning proof of slain Senator Clementa Pinckney’s actual vote to SUPPORT the placement of the Confederate flag on the South Carolina statehouse grounds. Now more proof is available of Senator Pinckney’s recent opposition to gay marriage. This evidence has once again been willfully ignored by the Mainstream Media, the Obama administration, and gay rights activists across the nation who are now falsely placing the slain pastor as one of their own. Here is evidence of Senator Pinckney’s vote outlining that legal marriage in South Carolina only be between one man and one woman: READ...

    Tampa Tribune ^ | 6/27/15
    A confrontation described as heated but non-violent thwarted a planned burning of the Confederate flag by demonstrators Saturday in Brooksville. A few hundred counter-protesters — many carrying Confederate and American flags — showed up at the steps of the Hernando County courthouse to cut short a rally in which organizers denounced “rampant white racist violence.” Organizers of the protest included the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, a St. Petersburg group of white people under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party, which seeks reparations for black Americans. As about a dozen people protested, they became greatly outnumbered by a pro-Confederate flag...

    NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt, Jr. opened up in a recent interview, discussing his strong opinions about the Confederate flag. When topic was raised by reporters at the Sonoma Raceway on Friday, the 40-year-old stock car driver did not bite his tongue when supporting the need to remove it. “I think it’s offensive to an entire race. It does nothing for anybody to be there flying, so I don’t see any reason.” Dale Earnhardt, Jr. further identified the one place where he feels the Confederate flag belongs and should remain. “It belongs in the history books and that’s about it.” USA...

    SI.com ^ | 6/26/15
    Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson compared gay marriage to pedophilia and incest in a series of Twitter posts on Friday following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marriage. The landmark Supreme Court decision effectively legalizes same-sex marriage in all 50 states. The Court's 2013 decision ruling the crux of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and subsequent decisions from lower courts laid the groundwork for Friday's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. While a number of athletes praised the Court's decision, Robinson questioned whether the logic that has led to the legalization of gay...

    Allen B. West ^ | 6/24/15 | Michele Hickford
    Matthew 5:9 says “Blessed are the peacemakers” and it would appear Pastor Clementa Pinckney was definitely one of those. While the mainstream media is decrying the fact that the Charleston shooting victim’s body was carried past a Confederate flag today, the good pastor may not have found it all that offensive. In 2000, during his first term in the South Carolina State Senate, Pinckney actually voted in favor of H5028, the May 2000 compromise which placed the flag at its current location. H5028 related to THE PERMANENT PLACEMENT OF THE UNITED STATES FLAG, THE SOUTH CAROLINA STATE FLAG, AND THE...

    “Jurassic World” was an instant box office hit when it opened in theaters two weeks ago. But now, moviegoers are noticing details that aren’t sitting well with some people. The uproar started when moviegoers began complaining about one of the dinosaur species in the movie called Pachycephalosaurus: The long name led to an abbreviation used by the characters, and thus the movie line that came into question: “The Pachys are out of containment!” British comedian Mobeen, also known as “Guzzy Bear,” took issue with this term and called for a boycott of “Jurassic World:” According to Focus News, the “Pachy”...

    I'm not sure how this story was missed, but the division commander of the S.C. Sons of Confederate Veterans, Leland Summers, released a statement on the Emanuel AME Church shooting last Wednesday. In it, he expressed sympathy for the victims and their families, noted there were black Confederate soldiers, and proclaimed there is no connection between the Confederate flag and the Mother Emanuel shooting. Here's what Summers said in its entirety: On the night of June 17, 2015, an attempt was made to break the spirit of all South Carolinians. The deranged mind of a horrendous individual, entered Emanuel AME...

    Kitty Werthmann lived in Austria when Hitler marched his troops in and took over. She sees parallels between growing up in Austria and living in America for the last seven years. Those who forget – or don’t learn – history are doomed to repeat it. Hitler came to power in the depth of the depression, Obama came to power, in part, as the result of a deep recession. In addition, Hitler socialized health care, he went one step further than Obama, it was free for everyone in Germany. Hitler managed to confiscate virtually every gun in Germany, Obama would if...

    LAKELAND -- A religious freedom group says Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd broke the law when he gave a sermon at a local church. The sermon was titled, “Wouldn’t the world be better if everyone behaved like a Christian?” It’s a question Sheriff Judd asked hundreds of people from the pulpit of First Baptist Church at the mall in Lakeland. It’s a question he’s now defending two months after the sermon he delivered in April. “I was invited to this church, as I am to many churches and secular events, and you know what, the message was clear,” Judd said....

According to CBS Chicago, the Illinois State Rifle Association urged its members to show up at what it called a gun control recruitment event at the church.

    Chiropractors have gotta love the cultural Left – I mean, an attentive observer could suffer whiplash tracking the whipsawing, confused, self-contradictory tenets of modern, libertine Liberalism. Consider the purple-faced reaction to the revelation that twenty-seven-year-old Josh Duggar (of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting) had inappropriately touched a number of young girls twelve years ago (his sisters and a babysitter among them). Demands were seething: the now-married father of three should have been jailed for his malefaction; his openly Christian family — all of them, mom and dad, throng of offspring, their spouses, grandchildren — should be drummed out of enlightened...

Mr. Carter spoke on a range of subjects with the magazine, including campaign spending and lobbyists, but he made a point to say that the U.S. still is lacking in terms of safeguarding civil rights. “The recent publicity about mistreatment of black people in the judicial and police realm has been a reminder that the dreams of the civil rights movement have not been realized. […] Many Americans still have racist tendencies or feelings of superiority to people of color,”...

McGowan, known for her contribution to independent films, went ballistic over the false quote, calling Cruz a "blight on the soul of humanity" and told him to "get off of my planet."

    An atheist activist is planning to file lawsuits claiming the phrase “In God We Trust” on American money is “offensive” and “unlawful.” “It violates the first ten words of the Bill of Rights (‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion’) and it violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA),” said Michael Newdow, who is also a lawyer and doctor. “Unfortunately, because Constitutional principles can be twisted and perverted, the challenges to this practice under the Establishment Clause have, so far, failed.” Newdow wrote a guest post on the Friendly Atheist blog last week, arguing that the Religious...

Here’s the first part of a statement released this week by the Millennial Activists United: “On May 14, 2015 many individuals and organizations of the protest movement that began in Ferguson, Missouri organized a sit-in in the office of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE).
