    The video that appeared more often than any other on my TV screen this past week showed protestors toppling a statue of a confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina. Then kicking it, stomping on it, spitting at it.The Workers World Party is the group that pulled off this feat and they were also involved in the violent conflict in Charlottesville.So, who are they? You didn’t learn much about them if you watched CNN or even Fox News. The commentators on the regular cable channels were too focused on racists and white nationalists and why Donald Trump wasn’t condemning them enough....
  • Meet the Raging Grannies, Portland's Not-So-Secret Warriors for Civility

    The model of peaceful protest that's largely held since the civil rights era is being challenged, with roiling violence in American cities from Charlottesville, Va., to Portland, Ore. The Grannies, who use humor to defuse tense situations, are among those trying to calm the streets. PORTLAND, ORE.—Amid the hubbub of Portland’s waterfront “Saturday Market,” song suddenly erupts from what looks like a Mayberry sewing circle, their raised fists punctuating the chorus: “It is a time to care, not to kill....” The singers’ dresses and hats are mismatched, their song a tad out of tune, but they are, Portlanders say, ever...

    Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend.    Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests.The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers" to...

    Good morning people, A few of things to keep in mind about the violence yesterday: 1) The NAZI / KKK / Alt Right / White Supremacists / Trump Supporters (whatever you want to call them) had a legal permit to march in Charlottesville. 2) The march was peaceful until the 'counter protesters', the people without permits (the Bernie people), showed up. 3) The police were ordered to stand-down, by the government - hence the violence was intentional. One Leftist that I know says that the easy way to avoid the violence is to not permit the NAZIs (and similar groups)...

The death is being investigated as a homicide, and the suspect is in custody, Thomas said. The identity of the woman is being withheld...
  • Americans Protest ‘Very Fake News’ CNN Outside of Atlanta Headquarters

    ATLANTA, Georgia — More than 150 protesters charged the CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia to share their disgust with the network’s peddling of “fake news” against President Trump’s administration. With signs reading “FNN #FakeNewsNetwork” and others targeting the networks’ advertisers such as AT&T and Microsoft, protesters chanted “CNN fake news!” directly in front of the CNN Centers’ signature logo. Protesters told Breitbart News that the rally against CNN was an effort to call out the media corporation for its unbalanced coverage of the Trump administration and its targeting of Americans, most specifically the creator of the anti-CNN wrestling match meme...

    Volunteers set up an “empathy” tent at dueling pro- and anti-Trump protests on Saturday in Sacramento as part of an effort to reduce violent clashes between the two sides. The Sacramento Bee reported that as police worked to keep about 150 pro-Trump demonstrators and a smaller group of anti-Trump protesters from coming to blows, peace activists used an “empathy tent” to defuse tensions:

    this is a vanity opinion piece...went to the movies today and had a realization when during the coming attractions when the theater distributor decided to put in the coming attractions a piece of political propaganda. the movie I was going to see was the book hennery. I never made it through the coming attractions of the movie because they had put a non movie ad about all gore and climate change and how trump is destroying the environment. I ended up yelling into the theater Go trump when they played an edited version of trump officially pulling out of the...

    Editors and reporters in the New York Times Co. newsroom can no longer keep quiet about their growing frustrations regarding the direction of the paper. After a pair of letters sent to Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Managing Editor Joseph Kahn by Times reporters and copy editors, the News Guild of New York said the New York Times editorial staff will leave the newsroom on Thursday as a demonstration of solidarity as management threatens jobs. In the copy editors’ letter to Baquet and Kahn, they say they feel betrayed and disrespected in the newsroom, and ask that management reconsider staffing...

    I think it was mildly amusing that some loud right-wingers spent a minute disrupting a bunch of New York liberals’ conservative murder porn party. There, I said it. And now, according to some people on the conservative side, I’m not a conservative anymore.Oh. Well, if conservatism has morphed into a human centipede of onanistic purity-signaling, then you fussy guardians of the word can have it.Now, there is a coherent and reasonable argument that hitting back liberals with a taste of their own medicine – that is, inflicting upon them a microscopic fraction of what they have spent decades inflicting upon...

    """Antifa Website Encourages ‘All Manner of Physical Violence’ Against Trump Supporters and Capitalists""" The Antifa website It’s Going Down has become the de facto resource for anarchists and “anti-fascist” activists currently engaging in sporadic street battles across the United States against Trump supporters and the government. The site calls for violence against capitalists and anyone it labels a “fascist.” It features posters for self-identified anarchists that call for Trump supporters to be stabbed. A poster published in April shows the silhouette of a man with a Make America Great Again hat and a Pepe the Frog lapel pin being cornered...

    Today a call of a “direct threat to campus safety” at Evergreen State College came into 911. School officials closed the school for the day. Law enforcement staked out the campus. This came on the heels of persistent protests… The students at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington are no more. They have been steadily brainwashed over the course of their schooling by liberal educators who did not understand precisely what they were creating. They should have seen it from a mile away. Call it a cult, Stepford students, robo-students, brainwashed liberals, mindless idiots… it’s all the same. They have...
