  • Reddit Page Bans White People From Posting

    04/08/2019 12:08:29 PM PDT · by MNDude · 45 replies
    A Reddit page dedicated to black issues has declared that white people are no longer allowed to post there anymore. The forum, r/BlackPeopleTwitter, posted an “important announcement,” which stated, “Due to the overwhelming number of white people and white opinions present on BTP, we are now restricting access to this sub for black folks only.” Non-black people then responded to the post by humiliating themselves, embracing their white guilt, and begging to be allowed to post again. “Super white dude here. I’d like to apply for the token white guy position,” responded one white user. “I won’t post or comment...
  • Kim Foxx whips out the race card to shield herself from her own Smollett decision

    Jussie Smollett cried "racism" when he staged his fake attack in Chicago. He was holding a hot potato when Chicago cops found out he made the whole thing up, paying the Nigerians with a check he signed. But Smollett had prosecutor Kim Foxx (and a whole lot of political connections she might find useful) in his tree and then got off scot-free for filing a false police report. Then Foxx found herself holding the hot potato. How's she reacting? Well, like Smollett, who cried fake racism to get more money and influence, she's trying to toss the hot potato to...

    On Saturday, April 6th, we are holding our second Day of Mourning in Richmond, Virginia. This could not be more timely. The governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, who is now best-known for his notorious blackface/KKK yearbook picture, shocked the pro-life community just days before that media scandal by openly advocating for post-birth infanticide. Need a refresher? “If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother,” Northam said on...

    House Speaker Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights, said in a statement that Democratic leader Eileen Filler-Corn, D-Fairfax, has repeatedly spurned offers by House Courts Committee Chairman Rob Bell, R-Albemarle, to hold a bipartisan hearing that would allow the two women to testify. “There should be no mistake about what has happened here: the alleged victims are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Republicans are seeking a bipartisan hearing; Democrats in the House of Delegates are refusing to allow that to happen,” Cox said.

    If you're a sleazy male Democrat, you can always count on Nancy Pelosi to run interference for you and your pervy proclivities. While she has soaked up plaudits as a champion for women (most recently as the VH1 Trailblazer Honors recipient last month for International Women's Day), what she really deserves is Cheerleader of the Year Award from the Democratic Bad Boys Club. The latest beneficiary of her soft-glove treatment is former Vice President and potential 2020 Democratic presidential aspirant Joe Biden -- a.k.a. the veep creep. She gently advised him to "pretend you have a cold" and joked during...

    More than a dozen state lawmakers filed onto the stage, summoned by the smiling leader of their state: Ralph S. Northam, the governor of Virginia. On the governor’s right were a handful of House Democrats, who as a group in February said they were “no longer confident in the governor’s representation of Virginians,” after learning of a shocking racist photo on Mr. Northam’s medical-school yearbook page. On his left were mostly Republicans, including the speaker of the House, Delegate Kirk Cox, who’d declared that Mr. Northam’s “ability to lead and govern is permanently impaired.” Some on stage were members of...

    Two rape allegations later, one of them corroborated by contemporaneous witnesses, 'Justin Fairfax' remains the Democratic Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. That puts him next in line to succeed Gov. Ralph Northam, also a Democrat. CBS News has followed up on the Fairfax story, conducting harrowing interviews with both accusers. Fairfax concedes that he had sexual encounters with both women, but maintains that they were consensual. The alarming evidence begs to differ. The significant detail that CBS News' latest interviews have added to the fray is that Fairfax's modus operandi was the same in both cases: He specifically targeted, isolated, and...

    Virginia Democratic Lieutenant Gov. Justin Fairfax’s office issued a statement Sunday again denying allegations of sexual assault and saying Fairfax took two polygraph exams in an effort to show he is telling the truth. The statement from Fairfax came as televised interviews of two women, Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson, are set to air over the coming days. “From the moment that Dr. Vanessa Tyson and then Ms. Meredith Watson first made accusations that Lt. Governor Fairfax had committed sexual assault decades ago, Lt. Governor Fairfax has been steadfast in saying that the allegations are extraordinarily serious, deserve to be...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two months after a blackface photo in an old yearbook nearly ended the political career of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, his life seems mostly back to normal. The Democratic governor is cracking jokes at almost daily public appearances around Virginia. State lawmakers who called on him to resign are now all smiles, standing beside him at news conferences. The Twitter mob has moved on to other things, and the antifa-led protests outside his house have stopped. At a century-old black church in Richmond over the weekend, Northam was warmly received as he helped unveil a historic...

    A student who worked with L. Douglas Wilder at the Virginia Commonwealth University school named for the former governor reported to the university and police that Wilder sexually harassed her by kissing her without consent. The woman, Sydney Black, 22, said Wilder, 88, also suggested she could live at his house and offered to take her on foreign trips and pay for her law school in 2017, while she still worked as an office assistant at the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs.

    A Virginia public school district has given a student art award to a drawing portraying a hook-nosed Jewish person carrying a money bag and entitled "Jewish People." The drawing was made as part of a student art class and won an award from Fairfax County Schools. It was on display at the Northern Virginia Community College’s Ernst Community Cultural Center, and celebrated at an awards ceremony. The drawing portrays a hooked-nose man holding a money bag. The caption reads, "No Jew in the World Understands the Importance of Money." When a school official was confronted by a concerned member of...

    One of the firmest rules in modern American politics these days is that candidates need to get out there and define themselves before somebody else gets a chance to do it for them. That seems to be a lesson that hasn’t been lost on California Senator and presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (D). Her greatest fear clearly appears to be the risk of being seen as part of the old Democratic establishment in an era of aggressive young socialists influencing their party. She made that point clear when she showed up for church services in Atlanta this weekend, talking about the...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s blackface scandal has largely dropped from public view, and one Democratic presidential hopeful says it’s time to move on. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday that “we have to move on” after being asked about Mr. Northam in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” **SNIP** “If we spend our whole time, Chuck, talking about what men did wrong, we are never going to talk about what women can do right, including running for president and winning,” she said. After Mr. Todd said that the Northam situation wasn’t a “great picture” for Democrats, Ms. Klobuchar...

    Four years ago, Democrats were gearing up for a pre-determined outcome, the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate. Convinced they were “on the right side of history,” Democrats believed Hillary was destined to succeed Barack Obama, America’s first black president, by becoming our first female president. The only real opposition to Mrs. Clinton’s nomination came from Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who had never previously identified as a Democrat. The weakness of Hillary’s candidacy was exposed in the 2016 primary campaign, when Bernie and his wild-eyed supporters very nearly derailed her nomination, being foiled by...

    All of a sudden, its popular to be progressive. The unexpectedly competitive Democratic primary of 2016, pitting Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders, quickly became a battle of "progressives" versus "progressives who get things done." And in the Democrats search for identity following Clintons soul-crushing general election loss to Donald Trump, Democratic candidates at all levels throughout the 2018 election cycle wore the progressive badge, even if their definition of "progressive" was sometimes rather ambiguous. Now, theres a Democratic majority in Congress, and along with it a diverse class of new lawmakers proposing an agenda which is resolutely radical by the...

    ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Protesters repeatedly shouted "shame" as a northern Virginia county board Saturday unanimously approved a $23 million incentives package for Amazon to build a new headquarters there. The Arlington County Board's 5-0 vote came after hours of heated public testimony, news outlets reported. Supporters said Amazon's plan to build a massive facility in Crystal City will lead to tens of thousands of good jobs and bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue. Opponents, however, said the tech giant neither needs nor deserves public subsidies. They also said lower-income residents would be driven out by...
