    “SHOOT REPUBLICANS” Says Former Carter Staffer July 17, 2015 by Michael Strickland “Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable. They will be targets in the Revolution when it comes” writes Roland Windsor Vincent, in a recent post on his blog, Army Of The Revolution.The entry, entitled “Protect Animals And The Environment. Shoot Republicans“, centers around animal rights and how “active Republican and conservatives voters are enabling the Animal Holocaust” and “If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment.”His article ends with: I mention Republicans and conservatives,...

    . . . If you want to maintain your credentials as a tolerant citizen of the world, you have to pretend that there is a strict wall of separation dividing Islam and radical Islam, and that the vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving. But in the real world no such wall exists. As exemplified by all those nice Muslim boys and girls next door who suddenly sign up for the jihad, Muslims can slide readily from the “trad” side to the “rad” side. Moreover, many of those who don’t resort to violence themselves seem willing to lend moral support to...

    A pro-choice man has been arrested after throwing paint on pro-life signs being held by members of Canada’s ‘Show the Truth’ pro-life organization. About 50 pro-lifers held signs containing the images of abortion victims in downtown Kingston earlier this week when they were met by pro-choice activists. A local media outlet reported what happened next: **VIDEOS AND PICTURES ON LINK****(WARNING SOME GRAPHIC) Confrontations began between the two groups and ended when a male demonstrator threw paint at members of the ‘Show the Truth’ group, vandalizing their signs.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel says police are doing all they can to quell violence on the streets, but the problem requires having fewer guns on the streets and more moral values in the homes, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore. Mayor Emanuel says he is both saddened and sickened by the rash of gun violence that claimed so many lives this weekend while police officers were on 12-hour shifts and the city’s summer jobs program is employing more people than ever.

The man was beaten into unconsciousness after a hip-hop concert on the Fourth of July.

    To the “Black Lives Matter” crowd, it seems that most black lives don’t. Roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered each year — more than 90 percent by other blacks. To some Democrats, only those shot by white police officers or white bigots seem to matter. Just 25 percent of about 400 local police killings a year involve a white cop and a black victim, an FBI study found. Shootings of blacks by police has been cut in half since 1981. For every black person killed by a white cop, black criminals murder 70. It is 25 times more likely a black...

Canadians across the country reported experiencing more anti-Semitism than in the past four years, with anti-Semitic incidents having risen a total of 28 percent from 2013 to 2014, according to the global Jewish advocacy group B’nai B’rith International (BBI). This made 2014 the “worst year” for anti-Semitism since advocacy groups began tracking incidents in 1982. The majority of those who reported an instance of anti-Semitism faced harassment,...

In a report titled, “The Negro Family: The Case for Action,” Assistant Secretary of Labor Moynihan, warned that the deterioration of the black family, would result in soaring crime rates if it continued unchecked. In the most famous passage of the 1965 report, Moynihan, who would later become a Democratic U.S. senator, wrote, “From the wild Irish slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los...

Police are no longer “arresting everybody for every little thing,” according to Baltimore City Councilman Brandon Scott, which he says “led to the underlying issues that we have been dealing with in the city.” In other words: distrust of police. But more than that, officers are “fearful at doing their jobs,” according to Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis. And that has meant they are no longer being proactive. And now, of course, we’re seeing a big spike in violence, which has some residents wishing the police...

And again, they claim that somehow they have been so deeply offended by cartoons depicting Muhammad that murder and mayhem are somehow justified. At the root of this insane rage against Western civilization is Muslim dignitude. “Dignitude” is dignity’s shabby imitation, the unfortunate tendency of some people to have an exaggerated sense of their own dignity and to be ready at any moment to be deeply offended at the slightest perceived affront.

    A Stroudsburg, Pa., woman suffered a broken eye socket and bruises during the attack, which took place in a local movie theater of all places.

Worse, the attack didn't occur during the heat of the moment inside the theater. The woman tells WNEP that the girls jumped her after the film let out: "They immediately jumped on me and knocked me to the ground, punched me in the face," she...

    Today the Fort Hood soldiers who were wounded in the 2009 terrorist attack, the one that the Obama administration insisted on classifying as workplace violence, will finally receive the Purple Hearts that they so deserve. However they won’t be receiving the financial benefits from the pentagon that go along with it and that’s something Ted Cruz calls outrageous and indefensible. Cruz says the Secretary of Defense will be hearing from him and he promises to keep fighting to ensure these wounded veterans get the money they are supposed to receive with the Purple Heart.

    Mac Slavo March 30th, 2015 The following video depicts three black men beating a white man on a metro train. There has been no outrage from Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton, so we can safely assume this was just random violence and the attackers and victim just happened to be of different skin color. Otherwise, we’re sure there’d be calls by the Justice Department for investigations into the matter and protest swarms would be gathering across St. Louis.(SNIP)(Click to the site to see the video)

    Last week, we reported on how the attention-starved gun control group, States United to Prevent Gun Violence (SUPGV) claimed to have deterred first-time gun buyers in New York City with a hidden camera stunt at a phony gun store. Some astute observers later noticed that the actor hired to portray the clerk of the fraudulent gun store was Ned Luke, the same performer who voiced one of the lead characters in the popular and graphically violent video game, Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V). This fact was later confirmed in an article on WashingtonPost.com’s Wonkblog. In his role for SUPGV,...
